Hello Everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! I’m a bit late on doing my wrap up post because I wasn’t feeling well.

Well, June turned out to be a good reading month for me but I’m still behind on my book reviews. I’m quite envious of the people who reviews books super fast. How do you guys do that?

Book Of The Month

DIVINE BLOOD (GUARDIANS OF MAIDEN#1)
BY BECK MICHEALS

This book was amazing! From the start till the end it was quite an addicting read. I absolutely loved the characters. If you haven’t heard of this hidden gem, then you need to add it in your TBR list. It was so good! I highly recommend it to all the YA fantasy lovers!

BLURB: 

The Shadow demon nearly took everything from Dynalya Astron, and it would soon return for more. When she discovers a way to fight back, she must go on a perilous journey and risk it all for those she holds dear.

Along the way, she meets Cassiel, a Celestial Prince with magic blood and wings as black as his heart. He wants nothing to do with Dyna until he learns she could lead him to a place he has been searching for all his life.

But reaching their destination is not as easy as they thought, nor are they the only ones who search for it. With danger at every turn and harrowing secrets between them, the quest will require much more than determination. They must fight for what they desire—or die trying.


Thank you for reading and Let’s Chat! ❤

Mini Reviews: The Shadows Between Us | Seven Deadly Shadows | Night Spinner

The Shadows Between UsBOOK TITLE: The Shadows Between Us
SERIES: Stand-alone
RELEASE DATE: February 25th 2020
GENRE: Young Adult, Historical Fantasy, Romance.
AUTHOR: TRICIA LEVENSELLER
PUBLISHER: Feiwel & Friends
BUY LINK: AMAZON
BLURB:
Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:
1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?

MY REV (Copy)

I loved Tricia Levenseller’s previous works Daughter of The Pirate King, and Warrior Wild. I was really excited about her new book because I love morally grey characters and stand-alone reads. I honestly thought that I would love it, but instead I was left with mixed feelings. The book began with a great start but slowly things started to take a downhill for me when the plot became predictable and the male lead started to appear dull. He’s your typical broody love interest with mysterious vibes but honestly I’m not much impressed with him. There’s no backstory about him and his power. He seemed more like a accessory for our mc. I wish the author gave more focus to his character. Alessandra is a morally grey character who’s smart, arrogant, cunning, manipulative, and also a little annoying. She killed her first love just because he rejected her. I enjoyed her character but I don’t love her.

If you’re expecting this to be a magical adventure then it will disappointing you guys. It was a story filled with royal politics, mystery, humor, betrayal, and a dash of romance. Even though it didn’t meet my full expectations, It wasn’t a boring read and I overall enjoyed the story.

RECOMMEND TO: Readers who likes YA fantasy with morally grey characters, and  Court Politics.
MY RATING: [3.5/5 Stars]

Seven Deadly Shadows

BOOK TITLE: Seven Deadly Shadows
SERIES: Stand-alone
RELEASE DATE:  January 28th 2020
GENRE: Young Adult, Urban- Fantasy, Mythology, Magic.
AUTHOR: Courtney Alameda & Valynne E. Maetani
PUBLISHER: Quill Tree Books
BUY LINK: AMAZON
BLURB:
Kira Fujikawa has always been a girl on the fringe. Bullied by her peers and ignored by her parents, the only place Kira’s ever felt at home is at her grandfather’s Shinto shrine, where she trains to be a priestess.

But Kira’s life is shattered on the night her family’s shrine is attacked by a vicious band of yokai demons. With the help of Shiro—the shrine’s gorgeous half-fox, half-boy kitsune—Kira discovers that her shrine harbors an ancient artifact of great power . . . one the yokai and their demon lord, Shuten-doji, will use to bring down an everlasting darkness upon the world.

Unable to face the Shuten-doji and his minions on her own, Kira enlists the aid of seven ruthless shinigami—or death gods—to help stop the brutal destruction of humankind. But some of the death gods aren’t everything they initially seemed, nor as loyal to Kira’s cause as they first appeared.

With war drawing nearer by the day, Kira realizes that if this unlikely band of heroes is going to survive, they’re going to have to learn to work together, confront their demons, and rise as one to face an army of unimaginable evil.

MY REV (Copy)

I never read Courtney Alameda’s books but I really wanted to give this a shot because I’m a sucker for books based on Japanese mythology. So did I love this book? Sadly no, but I did enjoyed reading it. My biggest issue with this book was that it felt more like a second book in a series and I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. It felt like reading a fanfiction novel of various animes. It was easy to guess that this book was influenced by various animes like Inuyasha, XXXholic etc. The main characters Kira and Shiro were okay-ish. Kira is a high school teenager who’s training to be the next priestess of her Grandfather’s shinto shrine. Besides her grandfather, she’s the only one in her family who has the ability to see Yokai. Shiro is a half kitsune and also guardian of the shrine. The romance between Kira and Shiro was sweet, but I honestly didn’t care much about it. The relationship between them was already established and it was a bit disappointing that we didn’t get to see how it all started. Some of the secondary characters weren’t fleshed out well enough. I wanted to know more about Shiro’s brother, and his mother. And also about Kira’s family members and the Shinigami that joined her cause. My favorite character was the demon cat named Nekomata. He’s fierce, deadly and also adorable. The plot was interesting filled with action, adventure, and magic. It was a retelling of Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai and the author gave her own twist to the story. Overall, it was a fun read if you’re looking for an anime in a YA book form.

RECOMMEND TO: Readers who likes Japanese mythology, urban fantasy, anime.
MY RATING: [3.5/5 Stars]

Night Spinner (Night Spinner, #1)

BOOK TITLE: Night Spinner

BLURB:
Before the massacre at Nariin, Enebish was one of the greatest warriors in the Sky King’s Imperial Army: a rare and dangerous Night Spinner, blessed with the ability to control the threads of darkness. Now, she is known as Enebish the Destroyer―a monster and murderer, banished to a monastery for losing control of her power and annihilating a merchant caravan.

Guilt stricken and scarred, Enebish tries to be grateful for her sanctuary, until her adoptive sister, Imperial Army commander Ghoa, returns from the war front with a tantalizing offer. If Enebish can capture the notorious criminal, Temujin, whose band of rebels has been seizing army supply wagons, not only will her crimes be pardoned, she will be reinstated as a warrior.

Enebish eagerly accepts. But as she hunts Temujin across the tundra, she discovers the tides of war have shifted, and the supplies he’s stealing are the only thing keeping thousands of shepherds from starving. Torn between duty and conscience, Enebish must decide whether to put her trust in the charismatic rebel or her beloved sister. No matter who she chooses, an even greater enemy is advancing, ready to bring the empire to its knees. thousands of shepherds from starving. Torn between duty and conscience, Enebish must decide whether to put her trust in the charismatic rebel or her beloved sister. No matter who she chooses, an even greater enemy is advancing, ready to bring the empire to its knees.

MY REV (Copy)

Night Spinner is the first book in Addie Thorley’s new YA fantasy series. When I picked this up, I didn’t know what to expect from this book. I liked the idea of a flawed heroine who’s banished for losing control on her dangerous power. Well guys, this book didn’t work out for me. First of all, this book was freaking slow and nothing major happens until we get to the last part. My second issue was the secondary characters. They were dull and cliched. The romance seemed forced and there’s no chemistry between the characters. The only thing that made me continue till the end was the main character. I enjoyed the complex relationship between her and her sister. It was more interesting than the cliched romance. I predicted the major twist at the end. After reading so many YA fantasies, it was easy to predict some of the aspects. The world building was decent enough, but I wish the author provided more details. The magical aspect was interesting. The writing was pretty good for a debut. Overall, It was an okay-ish read for me. If it wasn’t for that last part, It would’ve been a two star read for me.  I’m not going to continue the series because slow reads aren’t for me. If you are interested in this book, then definitely give it a shot because you might enjoy it more than I did.

RECOMMEND TO: Readers who don’t mind slow YA fantasy.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

MY REV (Copy)

The Winner’s Trilogy is one of the top hyped series in the YA genre. It has been on my TBR shelf for ages and it took me this long to finally pick it up. I’m a total sucker for enemies to lovers romance and I already knew that I would love this series and as expected It didn’t disappoint me at all. I enjoyed all the books in the trilogy and you can say that Kestrel is my new favorite YA heroine.

SUMMARY

 Seventeen Year Old Kestrel is an aristocrat girl who wanted to lead her own path. She’s a valorian, a warmongering empire who enslaved the Herrani after defeating them in the war. Being the General’s daughter, Kestrel was given two choices either join the military or get married but she has other intentions. She’s a master strategist but she loves Music and she don’t like War and Slavery. During her visit to the marketplace, she attends the slavery auction. When her eyes sets on a young slave named Arin something in his gaze intrigues her. She bids higher than others and finally takes him home without caring about the consequences. Arin is not a normal slave. He’s a guy with many secrets and he’s surprised with Kestrel’s gentleness towards him. They develop forbidden feelings for each other but they will always be enemies. When secrets are finally unveiled, together they will set events that will shake the empire.

CHARACTERS & RELATIONSHIPS

I absolutely loved Kestrel! She’s a beauty with brains. Even though she lacks in physical strength, she totally makes up for it with her smart brain. She’s a master strategist who can manipulate people until she achieves her desired outcome. Her father is proud of her strategic mind and he really hopes that she’ll join the military. The relationship between Kestrel and her father wasn’t really heartwarming. After her mother’s death, he was totally changed. It was sad that he was more loyal to his empire than his own daughter. Arin is a herrani slave who’s skilled in sword-making and also a wonderful singer. It’s pretty easy to guess that he’s a guy with a secret agenda. He hates Kestrel for not being the typical Valorian who loves abusing their slaves.  I enjoyed Arin’s character but there are some events in the second book that really made me hate him. The forbidden romance between Kestrel and Arin was well developed. I was rooting for them from the start, and boy they face many obstacles including themselves. There’s a lot of love-hate between them. The supporting characters were interesting especially Roshar, who we’ll meet in the third book. I wish Prince Verex and Princess Risha’s characters were more fleshed out.

PLOT, WRITING, & WORLDBUILDING

I loved the plot! It’s a story filled with love, hate, betrayal, and freedom. Everything was well executed and kept me engaged from the start till the end. The pace was perfect. I flew through the series without any trouble. I’m glad that I binge read the entire trilogy because the cliffy’s would’ve definitely killed me. The action and the romance was well balanced. The best thing about this series was the main character Kestrel. I enjoyed her character growth throughout. She had to make some tough decisions and she always stood strong even when she was in vulnerable position. The author’s writing was engaging and addicting. The series was written in alternating POV’s. The world building was great. It looked like a unique mix of roman empire and victorian era without any magical elements.

FINAL VERDICT

Overall, I absolutely loved this series! If I had read this trilogy five years ago, then it would’ve definitely gotten a full five stars from me. The story finally concludes with a satisfying ending and I can’t wait to check out the author’s new series which is also set in the same world.

RECOMMEND IT?

I can’t recommend it highly enough! If you have this series on your TBR shelf, then you really need to pick it up ASAP!

Monthly Wrap Up | May [2020]

Hello Everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! In the month of May, I was in a true blogging slump. I barely posted at all except for the wrap up, and my monthly anticipated post. To top it all off, I barely made it around the blogosphere to comment on other people’s posts and I fell way behind on my book reviews. The only good thing about this month was that I had a great reading. I’ve managed to read 14 books and now I’m behind on even more book reviews. I’m hoping to do some mini reviews, and series reviews in June so I can finally catch up with them. I also need to do some blog hopping.

THE BONE HOUSES BY EMILY LLOYD JONES

This book was sooo good! It was an interesting read with dark fairytale vibes. I loved the characters and the intriguing bone house concept. Some of the parts about death really touched my heart. If you like YA Dark Fantasy then you really need to give this a shot!

BLURB: Seventeen-year-old Aderyn (“Ryn”) only cares about two things: her family and her family’s graveyard. And right now, both are in dire straits. Since the death of their parents, Ryn and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, which sits at the foot of a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don’t always stay dead.
The risen corpses are known as “bone houses,” and legend says that they’re the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker with a mysterious past, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them near? And more importantly, how can they be stopped for good?
Together, Ellis and Ryn embark on a journey that will take them into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the deeply-buried truths about themselves.
