{Arc Review & Giveaway} Shatter City by Scott Westerfield

Book Summary:
When the world sees Frey, they think they see her twin sister Rafi. Frey was raised to be Rafi’s double, and now she’s taken on the role . . . without anyone else knowing.
Her goal? To destroy the forces that created her.
But with the world watching and a rebellion rising, Frey is forced into a detour. Suddenly she is stranded on her own in Paz, a city where many of the citizens attempt to regulate their emotions through an interface on their arms. Paz is an easy place to get lost . . . and also an easy place to lose yourself.
As the city comes under a catastrophic attack, Frey must leave the shadows and enter the chaos of warfare – because there is no other way for her to find her missing sister and have her revenge against her murderous father.

My Review:

I was excited for book two of The Imposters, Shatter City. I did love the world building. It takes place in the Uglies series. For those who have yet Imposters book one, can disregard this review. You see a lot of the main characters force to grow up in book two and change a lot since the first book.

The book leaves off with Frey now pretending to her sister, Rafi. Frey has a plan to save the boy she love and kill her father. Things never do go as plan. Col has set up an rescue mission of his own.

Frey once more becomes free and learns that her sister has gone missing. With a video clue to Rafi whereabouts, Frey heads to Paz. What secrets will Frey find in Paz? Where did her sister really run off to?

This book was a quick read for me. Mostly it was action pack fun. You get to see how much Frey struggling to have her own identity back. Then Rafi gets thrown into the wild, and have to become strong like Frey. These sisters change so much since book one. It was nice watching them grow up. A war is coming so they must all be prepared for it. Hopefully we get book three very soon.

The book comes September 17th.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford

Book Summary:
For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine…
Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that’s ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince—while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land.
Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor’s dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home—a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren’s brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen… and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave.
In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie.

My Review:

Crown of Coral and Pearl is such a great read. I really liked this book. The storyline was so good and I’ve fallen in love with the characters. This is one book that you must add to your TBR.

Nor and Zadie are twin sisters, they grew up thinking being beautiful will get you far in life. When an accident leaves Nor’s cheek scarred, it’s up to Zadie to become the king’s bride. Yet, Zadie dreams of staying home and marrying her best friend.

When Zadie is chosen to leave the island, she panics and forces her sister to do the unthinkable. Now it’s up to Nor to pretend to be Zadie and protect her family from the prince’s wraith. Will she be able to fool the prince?

This book was such a fast paced read. The sisters bond for each other is well written. They would do anything to help each other out. The world itself is amazing and pretty neat on the magical aspects of it. If you’re looking to start a new fantasy read, then you’ll be in luck with this book.

Crown of Coral and Pearl comes out August 27th.

{Birthday Giveaway} The Continent by Keira Drake

Book Summary:
For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two nations remain perpetually locked in combat. Most citizens lucky enough to tour the Continent do so to observe the spectacle and violence of battle, a thing long vanished in the peaceful realm of the Spire. For Vaela, the war holds little interest. As a smart and talented apprentice cartographer and a descendent of the Continent herself, she sees the journey as a dream come true: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.
But Vaela’s dream all too quickly turns to nightmare as the journey brings her face-to-face with the brutal reality of a war she’s only read about. Observing from the safety of a heli-plane, Vaela is forever changed by the sight of the bloody battle being waged far beneath her. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, Vaela finds herself much closer to danger than she’d ever imagined—and with an entirely new perspective as to what war truly means. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

My Review:

The Continent is a trip of a lifetime. A beautiful place to explore and see from afar.

This book was such an fantastic read. I thought this was such an original story. Something I never read before. I’m glad I gave this book a chance. It was hard reading the struggles the main character had to go through, but I did like her in the book. It very detailed world that drew me.

Vaela has such an creative nature in the book. Wanted to see the world around her. For her birthday she gets a trip of a lifetime. When and accident happens, leaving her alone in the wild of The Continent. Facing so many dangers and trying to stay alive alone. Will Vaela find a way home again?

Thought this book was a fast pace read. I enjoy watching Vaela grow and learn new things. This book is good for those who looking for something new and adventurous.

I’m giving away a new paperback copy of the book for my birthday.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

Book Summary:
In Sky Hawkins’s family, leading your first heist is a major milestone–even more so than learning to talk, walk, or do long division. It’s a chance to gain power and acceptance within your family, and within society. But stealing your first treasure can be complicated, especially when you’re a wyvern–a human capable of turning into a dragon.
Embarking on a life of crime is never easy, and Sky discovers secrets about her mother, who recently went missing, the real reason her boyfriend broke up with her, and a valuable jewel that could restore her family’s wealth and rank in their community.
With a handpicked crew by her side, Sky knows she has everything she needs to complete her first heist, and get her boyfriend and mother back in the process. But then she uncovers a dark truth about were-dragon society–a truth more valuable and dangerous than gold or jewels could ever be.

My Review:

I thought the book was such a magical read with dragons and unicorns. I did love the idea of magical creatures living with the humans and I also enjoyed the main characters storyline.

I highly enjoyed Sky in this book. Her dragon family had been outcasted because of something her mom did and now she’s the only one who wants to reunite with her. She’s ready to do her first heist as a dragon and follow in her mothers footsteps. What secrets will she discover? Who can she trust to help her out?

Sky is head strong and willing to keep her family together.

{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.

{Arc Review & Giveaway} Impostors by Scott Westerfeld

Book Summary:
Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadow’s of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she’s her sister – but Col, the son of a rival leader, is starting to get close enough to tell the difference. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Frey must decide whether she can trust him – or anyone in her life.

My Review:

So excited to get back into the ugiles series world. This book has a new story and new characters to enjoy. There some references to some of the characters from the ugiles series. If you have yet read the ugiles books, you don’t have to read this review.

I do enjoy Frey and Rafi sister bond they have them for each. You get to see how Frey struggle where she belongs. She been training her life in hiding and pretend to her sister double. I like how she grows in the book and becomes her own person.

I like seeing how Rafi puts on a brave face. In the media and everyday life she must pretend to be perfect. Inside she struggles going against her father and protecting her sister. Will these sisters be able to stop their father in time?

The book is action pack and fun. A simple quick read and I enjoy every minute of it. If your a fan of Scott Westerfeld works then this book for you. The book comes Sept. 11.

Straight-laced Olivia thought she had life all figured out. But when her dream internship falls apart, her estranged mother comes back into her life, and her long-time boyfriend dumps her right before summer break, she starts to think fate has a weird sense of humor.

Each struggling to find a new direction, Aiden and Olivia decide to live summer by chance. Every fleeting adventure and stolen kiss is as fragile as a coin flip in this heartfelt journey to love and self-discovery from the author of Love Songs & Other Lies.

{Arc Review & Giveaway}That’s Not What Happen by Koby Keplinger

Book Summary:
It’s been three years since the Virgil County High School Massacre. Three years since my best friend, Sarah, was killed in a bathroom stall during the mass shooting. Everyone knows Sarah’s story–that she died proclaiming her faith.
But it’s not true.
I know because I was with her when she died. I didn’t say anything then, and people got hurt because of it. Now Sarah’s parents are publishing a book about her, so this might be my last chance to set the record straight . . . but I’m not the only survivor with a story to tell about what did–and didn’t–happen that day.
Except Sarah’s martyrdom is important to a lot of people, people who don’t take kindly to what I’m trying to do. And the more I learn, the less certain I am about what’s right. I don’t know what will be worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up . . .

My Review:

I did liked this book. The story was very sensitive to most readers. I did liked the the characters in the book. The kids that survived been through a lot since the shooting years ago.

It was nice seeing how the survivors get together to cope with what happen each year. You can see the bond they have for each other. But when Lee wants to write the truth on what really happen that day, will their bond still be strong?

This book is empowering and about moving from grief and getting the truth out there. But not everyone will be happy about it. What happen that faithful day could change some of the survivors lives.

One Lucky Reader get a sign arc of this book. It comes out the Aug 28th. Sorry it has to be US Only for the giveaway.
