About the book

Experience the epic love story of Obsidian as told by its hero, Daemon Black… 

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. 

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are. 

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game. 

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger.It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

Surviving Ice by K.A. Tucker ~ Release Week Blitz

I am so excited to bring to you all today the Release Week Blitz for K.A. Tucker's Surviving Ice

Surviving Ice is a standalone romantic suspense novel and is the fourth book in K.A. Tucker's Burying Water Series, published by Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

About the book

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths series and Burying Water—which Kirkus Reviews called “a sexy, romantic, gangster-tinged page- turner”—returns with a new novel packed with romance, plot twists, and psychological suspense. 

Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.
When they need the best, they call him. 

That’s why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner with a penchant for blackmail got himself shot. But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty- something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he’s searching for. 

Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She’s always been drawn to intense men, so it’s no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control. 

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident—and that their attraction could be her undoing.

Air Awakens by Elise Kova ~ Review

I was recommend this book by the wonderful Library Luv - and knowing Library Luv's great taste in books, I had high hopes for Elise Kova's Air Awakens.

 But before I let you guys know what I thought, here's a little about the book...


About the book

A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond...  

The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.  

Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all—the Crown Prince Aldrik—she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. 

And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

My Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Elise Kova's Air Awakens is a fantasy story that balances reality and fiction.

A truly well-crafted fantasy world should be able to maintain a perfect balance between reality and fiction - giving readers enough glimpses of reality to get them to believe in this new world, whilst also giving the story enough fiction magic to transport them there.

Air Awakens impressed me with its ability to keep me in the world Elise Kova created. I never felt like concepts were over-explained, or dumbed down for me. I felt like, as a reader, I was being treated like an equal - a newcomer, but an equal. The author was treating me to a new experience without making me feel like I needed to go through 12 chapters of backstory to understand everything.

And that is, for me, the key to fantasy. Transport a reader to a new world and keep them there. Don't alienate them, but invite them by giving them tantalising peeks into the story's foundations. Make the experience magical for them!

It also features a really good-looking guy., I am not shallow! But I appreciate a hot male character as much as the next female reader, and Elise Kova's prince is swoon-worthy to the max. I mean, the guy is literally and figuratively hot (all fire puns intended!) so what's not to love?!

Vhalla is a spirited heroine whom you cannot help but love.

I have read many books, and let me tell you, I have not loved every heroine I have come across. But Vhalla endeared herself to me from the moment I met her - the perfect mixture of weakness and bravery, a flawed yet strong character whose trials were relatable despite their fictional nature. 

Following Vhalla's journey in Air Awakens was enjoyable every step of the way and I am honestly extremely excited for what's to come next in the series!

Jane Unwrapped by Leah & Kate Rooper ~ Review, Interview + Giveaway

Let me introduce you to a book you'll be dying to read...

As many of you may be aware, I simply adore all things mythology - especially ancient Egyptian mythology. 

So when I was given the opportunity to read & review Jane Unwrapped by Leah and Kate Rooper I just knew that it was the kind of book that I would fall instantly in love with. And I was right! Two pages in and I was already tuning out the outside world, perfectly content to sit down all day with a book that had gripped me with its brilliant characters and unique plot.

It's female protagonist, Jane, was witty, conflicted, and the kind of girl I instantly knew I'd be friends with in real life. Her love of science and quirky facts brought life to the story, making her more than just your average heroine. Her character development shocked me with its rapid but well-thought-out pace - she faced many challenges but emerged triumphant, wearing her emotional and physical scars proudly.

And the book's male protagonist was just as amazing...deadly amazing! Yes, yes, I was very tempted to include a whole array of death puns when discussing the hottie that is Anubis, but I will restrain myself ;)

The Rooper sisters' Anubis is by far one of the best adaptions of a mythological persona I have come across. Anubis was just the right blend of clueless, stoic, and self-righteous ancient god mixed with the adorableness, good looks and sly humour of a YA bad boy. The chemistry between him and Jane was off the charts! They helped each other grow and become better versions of themselves, challenged one another, and made great friends long before romance blossomed.

If you love comedy, romance, time-travelling, and mythology...Jane Unwrapped is definitely for you!
