Synopsis

Review
Siren is the first book by Kiera Cass  that I have read.  The Siren  is the story of Kahlen, along with her sisters and the Ocean. A siren is a singer, a singer of the Ocean. In order to maintain herself, the Ocean must feed; sirens help her to do that. They serve the Ocean for 100 years, but when Kahlen meets a human  boy her life will never be the same.

This is a straight  forward and classic story. Girl meets boy falls in love but it is forbidden.  But it is because  of this traditional  element that it makes it a beautiful  love story.

Love is a strong theme throughout this story. The love of a parent, love of a sister, love of family, love of the partner. It explores each of these relationships  as the story  unfolds and characters are introduced.

The characters Cass creates are clear and full of life, whether they are a major or a minor. Even the Ocean takes life as she  speaks, and  breathes.   

This is the perfect book for a weekend read. So put the kettle on and get comfortable.

Posted by Angel kk at Tuesday, February 09, 2016 0 comments

 
Synopsis 

“Life is full of crossroads, Alex. Full of choices.”

Returning for a second year at Akarnae Academy with her gifted friends, Alexandra Jennings steps back through a doorway into Medora, the fantasy world that is full of impossibilities. 

Despite the magical wonder of Medora, Alex’s life remains threatened by Aven Dalmarta, the banished prince from the Lost City of Meya who is out for her blood. 

To protect the Medorans from Aven’s quest to reclaim his birthright, Alex and her friends seek out the Meyarin city and what remains of its ancient race.

Not sure who—or perhaps what—she is anymore, all Alex knows is that if she fails to keep Aven from reaching Meya, the lives of countless Medorans will be in danger. Can she protect them, or will all be lost?

Review

I received  a ARC copy from Pantera Press  for a honest review.

As this book is due for release  towards the end of March. With that in mind i am going to try my best not to spoil the story for you.

With that said  this is the second  book in this series so if you haven't read the first 1, Stop reading this review and start reading Akarnae. (The first book in the series.)

It's time for Alex to return to school, after returning home for the holidays.  Though even that simple task wasn't without drama, but since she arrived  in Medora  Alex life seems to be filled with drama.

What better way to celebrate  her return then attending a party at the palace to celebrate her best friend D.C  or should we say Princess  Delucia Cavelle. Who hasn't made a public appearance  in years.  There is one small catch no one at school knows who D.C really is. So when a few  people from school arrive including their best friends Bear and Jordan,  Alex tries her best to keep D.C secret.

With the school back in its time for Alex and the gang to get back to into the swing of things with combat, equestrian, and archery classes. Though without even trying Alex ends up getting  her self into Hunters exclusive SAS class. A class that everyone ones to be in, well everone except Alex. But making it through Hunters class is the least of her worries. Aven is still hot on her trail determined  to get her to open the door  to the lost city of Meya at any cost.

To spice things up a little Lynette  has not only do we get to meet a few interesting  new characters into the mix. But she has also added a little spark of romance( which I hope we will see bloom in the next book)

I have to warn you the ending of Raelia  will leave you shocked and screaming for more.  You will  more then likely  read the last few pages a couple of times to make sure you have read it correctly.

If you love books like Harry Potter, House of night, and The Last of the Firedrakes ( just to name a few ) then you are going to love this series.

Lynette  has created a world  that once you enter you never want to leave. So open the door and join us in this fantastic  world

Review

I received  a ARC copy for a honest review.
As this book is due for release  until March, i am trying to do my best not to spoil the story for you. This is the third book in this series so if you haven't read the first 2 Stop reading this review and go to Betrothed. (The first book in the series.)

Confused  picks up were Allegiance left off. Leif and Marla have returned to the kingdom  after there  time with the shadow king, but you can tell from the start that something is wrong.
Though Marla has always really seemed to struggled to really find her place and settle in. From the start you can tell that there is something  more going on.

With her 18th birthday on is way the time is coming were she has to make a decision  as to whether to become immortal and what those she loves grow old and die or to stay mortal and live in the human world.

In Confused  all our favorites characters   return,  along with the introduction  of  a couple of new characters.

Confused  is full of twist and turns that will leave you dying to know what happen next. But I have to warn you that you may need to have tissues handy, especially  towards the end.
You will laugh,love and maybe even cry, but one thing is for sure it will leave you wanting more.

This is another  amazing book by Wanda Wiltshire and I cannot wait to see what will happen next.
