The Chosen One 

The countdowns down is on for the  highly anticipated release of Draekora.  To help build excitment Pantera Press is runing a amazing contest called The Chosen One. This is a amazing opportunity  for the winner.(me😊 fingers crossed)  


The 3rd book in the series, we find ourselves reunited with Alex and her friends. Now while there is the feeling of excitement  as we are reunited  we also have that feeling of dread. This is due to the fact that Jordan had sided with Aven.but there is also a little bit of excitement, due to not only potential  romance that could be forming for Alex, but also due to the discovery of the Meyarin city. What will there involvement  be ?

I love the Medoran Chronicles. It is a wonderful  story that creates such a vivid image that it pulls you in and makes you feels  as though you are part of the story.

The art work for these covers have been beautiful and the question is what colour will feature on the next cover? My guess is that blue will feature heavily on the cover. As it will help to present the idea of the changing season.

Review 

Mckenzie has done it again. 

With the fourth instalment in the series packing a punch. 

Sky life still hangs procareasly in the balance.

This story picks up  alittle more steam then previous  story’s.  With the attraction  between Sky and Ethan developing further. We also  learn more about the packs lives before they came in contact with Skylar.

This a fantastic  well paced story with a Clift hanger that will leave you wanting more.

Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow #1) by Danielle Paige 


Synopsis 

Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.

Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.

This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero. 


Review 

I received this ARC for a honest review.

This is the story of Snow. A girl who lives in a mental hospital.

 She has one friend in the hospital named Bale. But when they kiss what was a strange and complicated life becomes even more guarded.

 But when Bale mysteriously  disappears one night and Snow begins to have what she believes is a strange dreams about mysterious boy, she knows that she must escape  the hospital  and find Bale. However when she finds herself Algrid, her life will never be the same. 

The ending was unpredictable and yet at thevsame time a couple of things did feel predictable.

 Filled with lots of twists and surprises. This is a  really refreshing story. It had a great flow and kept you engaged. I will be very interested to say how the story plays out.

All in all this is a must read.

​Ruined (Ruined #1)by Amy Tintera


Synopsis 

A revenge that will consume her. A love that will ruin her.

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake

Review 

Would you seek revenge  on those who took everything from you? How far would you go?

This is the dilemma facing Emelina.

A year ago her would was destroyed. Her parents  were killed and her sister was kidnapped.  Now she wants revenge.

Ruina is a country where the people have  magical powers that can be deadly. A Ruined with powers, you have marks on your body making it obvious. If you are a Ruined without powers, you are considered useless. Unfortunately Em falls into this category.

Emelina is intelligent, strong, and  determined. It was refreshing having such a fierce heroine not afraid to kill.

In the kingdom of Lera, Em’s plan for revenge involves infiltrating the royal family to find out where her sister is. She will have to marry Prince Casimir and  get close enough to learn where Olivia is being held captive, and then finally kill the entire royal family. To do this she must become princess  Mary. 

Overall the story has a great mix of action, magic and romance  that will leave you wanting  more.
