{Arc Review} A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

Book Summary:
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

My Review:

A Dark So Lonely Curse was such a perfect Beauty and the Beast retelling. I love how how the story is set in modern times. Also the cover blew me away. Enjoy how the the two main characters interact with each other.

I thought Harper was kick ass in her own way in the book. She did not let her disabilities, stop her from helping a girl in trouble. Which would she end yup stuck into an crazy magical world. Can she use her wits and charm to get back home?

Prince Rhen in the book was such an jerk. He was so desperate breaking the curse, he end up kidnapping girls from other words. When Harper accidentally comes along, he is in over his head. Will Harper be the one to tame the beast?

This book was such an quick read. I would read this over and over. Also what I love in this book, the prince is not really a beast form all the time. He just a jerk prince that is cursed. What kind curse he has, well you must read for self. The book comes out January 31st.

Happy Reading!!!!!

Publisher: Mila Young

I’m a warrior. Cursed to fight monsters. Sworn to act as Zeus’ sword to protect mankind.

But I’d give it all up for one last kiss with the god who stole my heart…Apollo.

I never wanted to carry my family’s legacy. But blood ties cannot be broken, and I’ll keep the promise I made my father on his dying bed. Legendary monsters hunt in city streets of Chicago, and my job was to take down the worst.

I’ve trained with Heracles.

Been blessed with super human powers.

What I’ve never done is fallen in love—until Apollo crossed my path. But he isn’t the only god to catch my attention. Hades is here too, and with him comes a darkness that leaves behind a trail of human bodies. Heracles and my gut instinct urges me to destroy this creature, but each step brings me closer to the truth…

Darkness cannot win…or the Earth will tumble into chaos and I’ll lose the god I’ve come to love…Apollo is mine.

Apollo is Mine is book 1 in the Harem of the Gods reverse harem series.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} The Storm Runner by J.C Cervantes

Book Summary:
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He’d much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno—for his one good leg. What Zane doesn’t know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he’s destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in—unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can’t even walk well without a cane?
Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.

My Review:

This book was so much fun. Really did enjoyed every minute of it. Also did learned about some Mayan mythology. This middle grade book is for all ages.

I adore Zane in the book. He was like the underdog throughout the story. He got this limp and no powers. Yet everyone thinks he can break this god out prison. There are secrets to who he is. So what Zane is story and what does it have to do with gods?

I think the book is a quick read. Sadly took me a while to finish it bc I had work. If you enjoy action adventure books, while learning new mythology, this book could for you. Comes out the 18th.

Lucky for my readers I have an extra arc to giveaway on my blog. US Only.

Sky in The Deep by Adrienne Young

Book Summary:
OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.

My Review:

I have fallen in love with this book. Such a original story that drew me in. So did the cover of it. Even enjoy the characters in it a lot.

Eelyn is so cool in the book. You really dont want to mess with her and her axe. She would do anything to protect her family.

Fiske I enjoy him in the book also. Trying to show Eelyn their clan is not so bad after all. Can Eelyn trust the man who took her away from home?

With so much clan fighting, family secrets. Will their ever be in peace in the end?

Book is action pack, family betrayal and maybe little romance. For something new in the viking world, then try Sky in the Deep.

Happy Reading!!

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

Book Summary:
A summer read about first love, feminism, and ice cream.
Summer in Sand Lake isn’t complete without a trip to Meade Creamery—the local ice cream stand founded in 1944 by Molly Meade who started making ice cream to cheer up her lovesick girlfriends while all the boys were away at war. Since then, the stand has been owned and managed exclusively by local girls, who inevitably become the best of friends. Seventeen-year-old Amelia and her best friend Cate have worked at the stand every summer for the past three years, and Amelia is “Head Girl” at the stand this summer. When Molly passes away before Amelia even has her first day in charge, Amelia isn’t sure that the stand can go on. That is, until Molly’s grandnephew Grady arrives and asks Amelia to stay on to help continue the business…but Grady’s got some changes in mind.

My Review:

I can say this book is sweet. I liked the story idea of a group of friends working in an ice cream place for years together. Things change when the owner dies and the new hot manager starts and changes things up. He seems to be more trouble than what he’s worth.

I love the friendship between Cate and Amelie. Cate is like the bad girl, while Amelie is the sweet one. With this being their last summer together, will the new male manager ruin things between them?

A lot of ice cream was wasted throughout the book. The bonds and the friendships at the ice cream shop gets tested. It was a good book on best friends and trying to enjoy their last summer, before moving away to college.

Are you excited for the release of this cute summery read? Disappointed that you didn’t receive an arc? Well, you’re in luck!!! I’m giving away my personal arc copy to one lucky reader. Good Luck!!

Happy Reading!!!
