Honor does not bend. A will of iron does not break. Victory lies within the ashes.

The Vapros, the Taurlum, and the Celerius: three dynasties bound by an ancient promise, and given superhuman abilities to protect the city of Altryon from the dangerous world beyond its walls. The Vapros have the ability to teleport and turn their enemies to ash, the Celerius have super speed and the ability to heal from any wound, the Taurlum have skin like steel and godlike strength. Centuries of petty infighting have turned the families against each other, resulting in a secret war. A powerful emperor now rules over all, as the families have weakened by massive casualties.

Sixteen-year-old Neil Vapros desperately wants to become an assassin, to please his hyper critical father. After failing his first mission, Neil learns that a sinister new force has awakened. This mysterious new power threatens to shatter the established order and threaten the lives of everyone in Altryon – regardless of their family name or allegiance.

This was such an amazing audiobook and I am yet again lucky to be part of this book tour. I have so many great things to say, I don’t even know which one to begin with.

To start with a little background about the story, we have three powerful families, each in charge of some aspect of life in the city of Altryon. All members of these families were given certain abilities by the gods so they can serve and protect the citizens. However, a long lost war has been going on between them and now their youngest members have to unite and find a way to work together. It takes a common enemy and a loss from all sides to bring them together.

I love to very much how this story was full of action, how we get to experience each character’s point of view and each character’s development. Even if sometimes simple, the writing is very “familiar”, easy to understand and following a specific purpose. I appreciated the descriptions and the attention to details, as well as the political intrigues mixed with family and other social aspects.

Neil shows determination and somehow he is the leader of this group. He leans on his family and allies to reach his goals. Lilly Celerius is forced into maturity probably much earlier than she was expecting. The hesitation and lack of experience is visible in her personality, though she evolves and will be ready to face her opponent. The Taurlum brothers, even if they have received the gift of strength from the gods, seem to give up the fight even since the beginning. This is the amazing part in this book. There are no characters alike, all characters improve and learn from their mistakes.

Family aspects blend very well with politics, overcoming conflict and accepting responsibilities. Close to the end of the book, all characters have to decide if they are ready or not to continue the fight and this struggle is also very well captured – I know this is vague but.. it’s just some other awesome thing in this book that I just had to mention.

The narrator did an amazing job in expressing each character’s emotions and feelings. He managed to make us understand the despair, panic, conflict, love, hope. I absolutely adored his calm and clear voice.

To close, I cannot give less than 5 stars for this amazing book and I do hope you enjoy it as well. I cannot wait for the next book in the series!

Book Review: Unchained Melody

About the book:UM

Title: Unchained Melody

Author: Cynthia Roberts

Published: January 28th 2016 by Create Space (first published January 2016)

Source: e-copy received from the author, in exchange for an honest review

Format: .mobi

Blurb:

Pamela Landers had it all, a senior partnership with a top law firm, expensive car, and a luxurious condo. What she desired most was a loving husband, children and a life filled with precious memories that would comfort her through her golden years.

Funny how fate has a way of steering you down that path where dreams really can come true. When Pamela encounters Gavin Templeton along her journey, she has some life-altering decisions to make that eventually lead her to happily ever after.

Check it on: Amazon & Goodreads

My Review:

[I have received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review this has in no way out of my opinion]

A quick an easy read, this book will keep you going till the very end, with a plot that gradually increases and characters that are easy to like.

In an attempt to have some days away from work, Pamela meets Gavin and if the instant attraction wasn’t enough, Gavin has a car accident and she is the one saving his life. Here starts a rollercoaster of emotions and life altering events that will put their feelings to test.

From writing perspective, we have only Pamela’s views and we see their turmoil more from her side. We are not offered any more of Gavin’s opinions more than he is comfortable sharing. The plot evolves gradually to a major event that will change their lives. There are some scenes that were not at all believable though, especially one particular sex episode, but other than that all looks just fine.

Now, regarding the characters, I have several complaints but as well several appreciations. On one hand, I like that both characters have the same good financial position – she is a very well-known lawyer with a nice income, he’s co-owner of several businesses. Even if the attraction is obvious, they start to bond when Pamela saves Gavin’s life. Both represent some form of a new beginning. Pamela wishes for a family; Gavin wants to share his heart with someone. The internal battle that Pamela has to face at some point is very well presented. Her will and determination are as well inspiring.

On the other hand, each character has a moment of immaturity. They have several arguments, mainly due to silly misunderstandings. I believe these reactions were exaggerated and did not sit well with their personalities.

I’m struggling a little with the rating. My score would be 3.5 stars, but if I have to around it, I will offer 4 stars, but I hope the other books in the series have more attention to details and to the characters’ personalities. The writing was great; the way the plot evolved was great, but it definitely could have been better. Looking forward for the other books as well!

Tie Optional!

 

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL
Wild Wedding #1
Ann Marie Walker
Releasing May 30, 2017
St. Martin’s Press

The
Proposal 
meets Two
Weeks Notice
 in Ann Marie Walker’s new standalone romantic
comedy, Black Tie Optional, which New York Times bestselling
author Jennifer Probst calls, “a fun, sexy romp that will keep every
reader entertained!”

Everything about Coleman Grant III oozes power and sex. And not the perfunctory
kind either, but the sheet clawing, heart stopping, gasping for air after
you’ve screamed so loud you can’t breathe kind. From his dark wavy hair that
stands in an artfully rumpled mess, to the blue eyes that sear your skin, to
his full, sensual lips – on the surface he’s pure perfection.

 
Too bad
he’s an asshole. An arrogant, uptight corporate raider hell bent on destroying
the environment one species at a time.
 
Everything
about Olivia Ramsey screams hippie humanitarian. From her blond hair tied in a
sloppy bun, to her faded jeans with the Bonnaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to
her combat boots still splattered with mud from the previous day’s site visit.
So it makes
perfect sense that they would get married. In Vegas. Stone-cold sober.Cole
needs a wife. Olivia needs to save an endangered species. But what starts as a
marriage of convenience soon turns into a battle of wills and sexual tension.
Love is a game, and Olivia and Cole are ready to win.
 
Chapter One
 
Just like
clockwork, Olivia thought. She watched the gas-guzzling SUV roll to a stop
alongside the curb, its hazard lights blinking as if some sort of justification
for bringing a full lane of Chicago’s morning rush hour to a grinding halt.
Every day the sleek black car stopped in exactly the same location so the
almighty Coleman Grant III could get the same extra hot, double shot Americano
from the same big-chain coffee shop, bypassing the smaller, neighborhood
establishments trying to stay afloat as corporate America runs them into the
ground.
            A mountain of a man in mirrored
aviator shades jumped out of the front seat to open the rear door, giving
Olivia a clear view of the luxury vehicle’s interior. Two leather captain’s
chairs with fold down keyboards and armrest tablet holders sat facing several
television monitors mounted above what appeared to be a full-service bar.  Forget running a business, it looked as
though Coleman Grant ran NASA from his back seat. Honestly, what could possibly
be so important that it couldn’t keep until he got to the office? The commute
from his Gold Coast penthouse to his Loop headquarters was less than two miles.
Hadn’t the guy ever heard of just chilling out with some tunes?
            Olivia approached the car just as
Grant climbed out of the back seat. He paused to button the jacket of his navy
blue Tom Ford and for a moment she forgot he was an arrogant, self-righteous
prick hell bent on destroying the environment one species at a time. For a
moment, she allowed herself to take in the physical perfection standing in
front of her. From his dark wavy hair that stood in an artfully rumpled mess,
to the blue eyes that seared her skin, to his full, sensual lips – everything about
Coleman Grant oozed power and sex. And not the perfunctory kind either, but the
sheet clawing, heart-stopping, gasping-for-air-after-you’ve-screamed-so-loud-you-can’t-breathe
kind. But then his eyes narrowed and his lips curved into a knowing smirk and
Olivia remembered exactly who she was dealing with.
            “Mr. Grant,” she began.
            The bodyguard moved to step between
them but Grant waved him off. “Ms. Ramsey, what a surprise,” he said, not at
all surprised since this was the eighty-third day in a row she had approached
him. Not that it mattered. She had no plans to stop these sidewalk sessions
until he either agreed to her demands or filed for a restraining order.
            He made his way toward the coffee
shop with Olivia tight on his heels. “You know, most people simply make an
appointment with my assistant.” 
            “I’ve tried that, Mr. Grant. But for
some reason your schedule is always full.”
            “Pity,” he said, his voice void of
all emotion. When he reached the glass doors, he yanked one open. “Please,
after you.” 
            Bastard. Normally he charged in like
he owned the place, never mind if she or anyone else got a face full of door. How
dare he try to throw her off her game by acting chivalrous. As if the man had a
courteous bone in his body. Olivia stood frozen in place, debating how best to
handle this latest twist in their balance of power. As she did, Cole’s gaze
raked her from head to toe, from her blond hair tied in a sloppy bun, to her
faded jeans with the Bonaroo patch sewn on the thigh, to her combat boots splattered
with mud from the previous day’s site visit.
            She hated to admit it, but the
scrutiny of his gaze was unnerving. And it wasn’t just the laser like focus.
There was something about his expression, as if he wasn’t looking at her fully
clothed in a shop brimming with customers, but rather undressing her with his
eyes. She shifted in place, debating if she should call him out for his piggish
behavior or simply stick to the topic at hand.
            “Suit yourself,” he finally said,
stepping through the doors and leaving her alone on the sidewalk. 
            Not so fast. She took a deep breath
and joined him at the service counter.
“Mr. Grant, as I’m sure you’re aware, the northern long-eared bat was
recently granted protection as a threatened species under the Endangered
Species Act.”
            “Rather difficult to forget given
your daily reminders. Although I must say, Ms. Ramsey, you disappoint me. No
visual aids today?” He turned away from the counter with his extra hot, double
shot Americano to find Olivia standing behind him with an 8 x 10 glossy in her
hand.  “Ah, it seems I spoke too soon.”
            “This particular species of bat has
been the most impacted by white-nose syndrome and the resulting decline in
their numbers is what—”
            “Those really are the most vile
creatures,” Grant interrupted. “Have you ever considered taking up the cause of
a more appealing animal, say a manatee?”
            “There aren’t any manatees in Lake
Michigan.”
            “Precisely.” He smirked. “Perhaps
you could move? I’m sure you could find some poor, unsuspecting Floridians
worthy of your attention.” He raised his left hand and for the first time
Olivia realized he was holding a second cup. He thrust it in her direction and
without thinking she took it, dropping the photograph as she did. “You seem
like the type who would order your latte with a hundred and one specifications,
but hopefully skinny vanilla will do.”
            Olivia blinked. He bought her a
coffee? What the actual fuck? Did he really think he could charm his way out of
the hot seat? She had spent her entire adult life and most of her teens
speaking on behalf of those who couldn’t. It was going to take a lot more than
a few random acts of fabricated kindness to get her off his back.
            She was about to tell him not only
where he could stick his latte but how in her twenty-eight years on earth she’d
never ordered a “skinny” anything, when he turned toward the door. She bent to
scoop up the photo then hurried after him, fast talking her case all the way to
the curb where his bodyguard stood waiting with the door already open. As
usual, Grant didn’t say a word, much less defend his stance. Instead he simply
flashed a grin that would have made her drop her latte, not to mention her
panties, if she didn’t find him to be lacking in not only morals and ethics but
quite possibly a soul.
            He gave her a quick nod before
ducking into the car.  “Until tomorrow,
Ms. Ramsey.”
            With that, the door slammed shut and
the SUV pulled into traffic to the sound of protesting horns.
            “Asshole,” Olivia muttered under her
breath. “Gorgeous asshole, but still.” She turned on her heel and started down
the street with her head held high. Coleman Grant III might have been trying to
make a mockery of her attempts to persuade him, but their standoff was far from
over. A slow grin curved her lips as an idea began to take shape. She’d just
pulled her smartphone out to send herself a reminder when it began to vibrate
in her hand.
            “Are you bringing your swimsuit?”
her best friend asked before Olivia had even managed a hello.
            “To the desert? You’re joking,
right?”
            “I wasn’t sure.”
            “Cassie, I know you’ve had your head
buried in cookbooks for the past few years but surely you can remember how a
vacation works…lounge chairs, suntan oil, blended drinks with tiny umbrellas
that make you say ridiculously inappropriate things to cabana boys.”
            “I have never said anything
inappropriate to a cabana boy. And that’s sexist by the way.”
            “Cabana person?” Olivia laughed at
her own joke. “I’m playing. But you’ve got to lighten up a bit. We’re headed to
Vegas, Sin City, what happens there stays there and all that.”
            “You sound like a tourism ad.”
            “All I’m saying is you better be
ready to party Hangover style.”
            Cassie snorted. “Yeah, cause that
worked out so well for them.”
            “I promise I won’t leave you
stranded on a hotel roof.”
            “This is a bad idea. I should be
staying here and looking for a job.”
            “You’re the sister of the groom. You
can’t very well ditch out on the bachelor/bachelorette festivities. Besides, if
I can break my ‘Harass Coleman Grant’ streak for a few days, then you can
certainly give the stand mixer a rest.”
            “How’s that going by the way?”
            Olivia groaned. “New day, same
story. ”
            “Maybe it’s time to—”
            “Move on? No way.” While it was true
that working freelance allowed Olivia a certain amount of latitude, she prided
herself on never giving up. There was no way Coleman Grant was going to blemish
her perfect record. “I’ll just have to double my efforts.”
            Cassie laughed. “I’m actually starting
to feel sorry for the guy.”
            “Don’t be fooled by the looks. He
might be hotter than Ryan Reynolds and Ian Somerhalder combined, but underneath
that perfect exterior beats the heart of an ogre.”
            “Sounds like someone has wet
panties.”
            “Why Cassandra Miller, is that
smutty talk I hear coming out of your mouth? There may be hope for you yet.”
            “Don’t change the subject. You’ve
got the hots for this guy.”
            “Hardly. He’s eye candy all right,
but he’s also a spoiled, self-centered asshole who think it’s his way or the
highway. Not this time though.” Olivia nodded to herself. One way or another he
was going to give in to her demands. Coleman Grant III had finally met his
match. He just didn’t know it yet.

I was mentioning in some of my other articles that listening to audiobooks is a way for me to get out of my comfort zone and try some other type of books as well. After several reviews, I find it to be very true. I probably would not have picked a horror book otherwise, but at least in case of „Lurk”, I would have missed a great one.

As the description says, a group of college students notice someone has been spending nights in their basement and also a bunch of Polaroids showing the old gang that used to live in the same house. All is nice and well until Drew Brady discovers that the Polaroids can show much more than that and have the power to spy on their subjects also. The story gets even creepier when he starts having visions of old people and Bea (his all-time crush) is stalked by someone.

A bit of a trigger warning: we have a main character which is fat and has a history for mental illness. There is also a suicide which is described (with a fair amount of accuracy) in the book. So if you are not comfortable with these, you have been warned.

I wouldn’t say this was a scarry, scarry book. For someone not used to reading horror books, this is a decent one. The author manages to align the words with the emotions of our main character, whose point of view we have. Narrated from his point of view, Drew feels alone, even if surrounded by his friends. All the other characters have a typical teenage behavior: drink, somoke, party, repeat. But Drew is far more complex.

This character opens up a door to some other problems that young people may face these days. With a history of mental illness and a weight complex Drew becomes jealous of his best friend Jay when he starts dating Bea. Even if the girl of his dreams never showed an interest beyond friendship, he starts hating them for this relationship. I believe he is the best example of a person who understands he has issues, but doesn’t do anything to overcome his insecurities. The author did a great job creating this complex character, which, if analyzed in detail, can become a great study case J

The narrator did a good job wen telling this story, even if the voice acting was not that good. Sometimes I was a little confused because I did not realize who was speaking, but that was ok. I had no problems, however, to understand the message and that’s more important.

Ok, rating time. I would go with a 3.5 stars for the narration and 4.5 for the book. I loved the main character, I love having things to analyze in a book outside of the story. Somehow I would have wanted more… horror. So a total of 4 stars for the complete audio version of this book, with my congratulations to the author and narrator for a great work!

Book Blitz: STARR FALL by Kim Briggs

One Starr falls, and a killer rises
Book Cover
STARR FALL
Kim Briggs
Series: Starr Fall, Book 1
Genre: Young Adult, YA Contemporary, YA Romance
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: November 4, 2016
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
Abandon whatever you are doing and read this book! I truly enjoyed it. It’s such a quick paced book. You could easily read five or six chapters without realizing how much time has passed! The ending left me wanting more!

About Kim Briggs

Author Pic

Kim Briggs once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17-year-old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it’s not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can’t escape. And Then He is available through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall released November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017 and Starr Gone in June 2017. Her novella, Avalanche is part of the Valentine Kisses Anthology and released February 14, 2017.
When she’s not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snowdrifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She’s careful to avoid trees.
