Review - The Falconer (The Falconer #1) by Elizabeth May

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)Title: The Falconer
Author: Elizabeth May
Series: 1st
Pages: 378

Description: Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined for a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery killed her mother.  Now it’s the 1844 winter season and Aileana slaughters faeries in secret, in between the endless round of parties, tea and balls. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, she sheds her aristocratic facade every night to go hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.  But the balance between high society and her private war is a delicate one, and as the fae infiltrate the ballroom and Aileana’s father returns home, she has decisions to make. How much is she willing to lose – and just how far will Aileana go for revenge? 

I Give This ...

I really liked the description on this one.  Historical fiction set in Scotland, the fae, and the hit of steampunk has all the right elements.  This book ended up being just what I needed.
I thought Aileana was fantastic.  She makes no apologies for who she is, no matter the rumors that may be flying around.   It's not like she can tell anyone what she's really doing when she stopping all over protocols and proper behavior for a young women.  I think she feels guilty for lying to her friends, but that's about as deep as it goes.  In fact, I think she gets a little bit of pleasure from tracking down bad fae and killing them.  Especially if she can save a human life while doing it.  The problem is that I don't think anybody bothered to explain all the rules to her.  She setting herself up for immense danger.

I particularly enjoyed Aileana relationships with her pixie friend Derrick.  Who though a sidekick like this could be so much fun.  He's just the right mix of humor to give the story a lighter tone in certain places.  But, you can also tell he really cares about Aileana.  Overall though, I was must drawn to Aileana's relationship with Kiaran.  He gives off the impression that it's all business with Aileana.  But, you can tell there's something smoldering underneath.  There's something about the fae that just draw you, especially when it's done right.

The story seems so fast paced at times, that I didn't get a real feel for the world they live in.   It feels steampunk, but not to the point were I end up having problems with it.  And, in very few instances could I actually tell that this book was suppose to be set in Scotland.  However, in the end those things didn't really effect how I felt about the story.   I'm ready for the next one!

Review - Witchfall (The Tudor Witch Trilogy #2) by Victoria Lamb

Witchfall (The Tudor Witch Trilogy, #2)Title: Witchfall
Author: Vitoria Lamb
Series: 2nd (Witchstruck)
Pages: 336

Description:  Her darkest dreams are coming true. In Tudor England, 1555, Meg Lytton has learned how powerful her magick gift can be. But danger surrounds her and her mistress, the outcast Princess Elizabeth. Nowhere is safe in the court of Elizabeth's fanatical sister, Queen Mary. And as the Spanish Inquisition's merciless priests slowly tighten their grip on the court, Meg's very dreams are disturbed by the ever-vengeful witchfinder Marcus Dent. Even as Meg tries to use her powers to find guidance, something evil arises, impervious to Meg's spells and hungry to control England's fate. As Meg desperately tries to keep her secret betrothed, the Spanish priest Alejandro de Castillo, out of harm's way, caution wars with their forbidden desire. And with her most powerful enemy poised to strike, Meg's only chance is a heartbreaking sacrifice.

I Give This ...

I really enjoy paranormal book set within historical fiction.  I think it's a blend of both genre's that I enjoy.  Add in Tudor England, and I'm sold.  I've particularly enjoyed this other side of Princess Elizabeth.

Meg has every right to be walking on eggshells.  Princess Elizabeth enjoys her company as well as what she can do.  But, she's made it perfectly clear that if Meg is caught, Elizabeth will deny any acknowledgement of her actions.  Her life and throne are on the line, so I don't really blame her.  Add in the priests questioning her every move, and it's no wonder she doesn't swear off magic forever.  But, magic is a part of Meg and she can't deny it.

Fate is coming full circle now and you can anticipate how this story might play out.  Meg is more powerful than she can imagine, but she might be playing with fire.  It might not be possible for her to have her cake and eat it too.   Especially when it come to Alejandro.  I often wondered if the priest would be able to look past the magic the more it comes into play.  It goes against everything he's been taught.

I really enjoyed this installment even though it could be a little slow at times.  But, it's setting up for our finale and I'm looking forward to that book very much.

Review - The Boleyn Bride by Brandy Purdy

Description: At sixteen, Elizabeth Howard envisions a glorious life for herself as lady-in-waiting to the future queen, Catherine of Aragon. But when she is forced to marry Thomas Boleyn, a wealthy commoner, Elizabeth is left to stagnate in the countryside while her detested husband pursues his ambitions. There, she raises golden girl Mary, moody George, and ugly duckling Anne—while staving off boredom with a string of admirers. Until Henry VIII takes the throne. . . When Thomas finally brings his highborn wife to London, Elizabeth indulges in lavish diversions and dalliances—and catches the lusty king's eye. But those who enjoy Henry's fickle favor must also guard against his wrath. For while her husband's machinations bring Elizabeth and her children to the pinnacle of power, the distance to the scaffold is but a short one—and the Boleyn family's fortune may be turning. . . 

I Give This ...

Tudor Era, oh how you call to me.  However, I probably should have stayed away from this one.  I enjoyed learning about Anne and Mary Boleyn from a different perspective.  But, the Elizabeth Howard is this book is one of the most narcissistic women I have ever read about.    

I know that women of privilege can sometimes be a little out of touch with reality.   Even in Tudor England, were nobility women were still basically considered property, maybe even more so then.  But, I think Elizabeth takes the cake in that department.  She's well bread and beautiful, and she's not afraid to tell you about it every couple pages.  I was hoping that being forced to marry somebody that wasn't of her "standing" would knock her down a couple pegs.  Yet, it didn't take long to discover that he was horrible too.  He had little care for her personally, only what she could do for him.  

Children seem to be the common thread that weave all women together.  Somehow, the motherly instinct skipped right by Elizabeth.  Her children were basically beings that robbed of her youth and beauty.  Mary was pretty, so she received what little attention her mother had to give.  Never mind that it seems she was never taught even a little bit of common sense.   She was probably so starved for affection that she found it in whatever man was willing to offer it.   At least Anne was smart, almost too smart for her own good though.  I think it was her temper that got her in the end.  Nobody bested Henry VIII.  Although, I have to admit that the idea that all 3 women had relationships with Henry VIII to be a little disturbing. 

In the end, she kept talking about how she could have done things differently.   If only she had forgiven Mary, if only she had done this or that.  But, what really bugged me was Mary was still alive.  I wish she would have made that step to bridge the gap.  She might have redeemed herself a little.

I might have to seek out something else that might shed some more light on Elizabeth.  She couldn't have really been like this?

Review - Killer Frost (Mythos Academy #6) by Jennifer Estep

Description: I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.  Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.  Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am. 

I Give This ...

I apparently was savoring this last book so much, I flat out forgot to write a review for it.  So, this review will likely not give this book justice.

It's always bring a little bit of apprehension when the final book is a series comes to play.  Especially, when it a series you've really enjoyed with characters you've loved.  That's how I felt about opening up Killer Frost.  I should never have doubted Jennifer Estep.  This book contained everything I had hoped for.  It tied up all the loose ends.  There was no wondering if things played out the way they should.  It was fast paced and moved full throttle to the ending.

I really loved Gwen in this last installment.  Gone is the girl trying to convince everyone that she doesn't belong in this world.  She's determined to see this through to the end and has even accepted the idea that it might not turn out exactly the way she would hope for.  Heck, she even acknowledges the fact that she doesn't have to do it alone.  Her friend will be there until the very end.  In kind of had a Harry Potter feel to it with the final battle occurring at Mythos Academy.

I still love her friends.  Logan is perfect in every way, especially in the fact that Gwen sees that he's not.  Daphne is the character that has surprised me the most in this series.  I think she balances out Gwen's insecurities nicely.  And those are just two of the secondary characters that make this book (and series) so great. 

I still need to read Jennifer Estep's adult paranormal series, plus this book gives the hint of a spinoff.  I won't be forgetting about her anytime soon!

Add to GR Button

An epic Elizabethan adventure with a thriller pace and a high tension love story that moves from the palaces of England to the savage wilderness of the New World.  Emme Fifield has fallen about as far as a gentlewoman can.  Once a lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth, her only hope of surviving the scandal that threatens to engulf her is to escape England for a fresh start in the new America where nobody has ever heard of the Duchess of Somerset.  Emme joins Kit Doonan's rag-tag band of idealists, desperados and misfits bound for Virginia. But such a voyage will be far from easy and Emme finds her attraction to the mysterious Doonan inconvenient to say the least.  As for Kit, the handsome mariner has spent years imprisoned by the Spanish, and living as an outlaw with a band of escaped slaves; he has his own inner demons to confront, and his own dark secrets to keep...

Ever since Sir Walter Raleigh's settlement in Virginia was abandoned in 1587 its fate has remained a mystery; 'The Lost Duchess' explores what might have happened to the ill-starred 'Lost Colony' of Roanoke.

About the Author

I've had a love of history and adventure ever since an encounter in infancy with a suit of armour at Tamworth Castle. Training as an artist, followed by a career as a city Jenny (Portrait 2)solicitor, did little to help displace my early dream of becoming a knight. A fascination with the Age of Discovery led to travels in South and Central America, and much of the inspiration for my debut came from retracing the footsteps of Francis Drake in Panama. The sequel centres on the first Elizabethan 'lost colony' of early Virginia. I am currently working on an epic adventure during the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada.

My work has appeared in short story collections and anthologies and I've written for non-fiction publications including the Historical Novels Review. I am active in many organisations, having run the 'Get Writing' conferences for several years, and undertaken the co-ordination of the Historical Novel Society’s London Conference 2012. I am a member of that organisation as well as the Historical Writers' Association, the Romantic Nevelists' Association and the Society of Authors. I'll be co-ordinating the RNA's annual conference in 2014.

I have four children and now live on a farm in Dorset with my long suffering husband and an ever increasing assortment of animals.

I love travelling, art, reading and scrambling up hills and mountains (though I'm not so keen on coming down!).

Mistress Cooksley may be a wealthy merchant's daughter, but she blushes at my words and meets my eyes look for look. Yet I cannot hope to court her without fortune, and a dalliance with a pretty maid will not hinder me from my path.  Captain Drake's endeavour might bring me gold, but I, Will Doonan, will have my revenge.  The Spaniards captured my brother and have likely tortured and killed him. For God and St George, we'll strike at the dogs and see justice done.  I thought I'd left Mistress Cooksley behind to gamble everything and follow Drake, and here she is playing the boy at the ends of the world. She's a fool with a heart as brave as any man's. Yet her presence here could be the ruin of us all...

Review - The Hunt (Project Paper Doll #2) by Stacey Kade

The Hunt (Project Paper Doll, #2)Title: The Hunt
Author: Stacey Kade
Series: 2nd (The Rules)

Description: Ariane Tucker has finally escaped GTX, the research facility that created her. While on the run, Zane Bradshaw is the only person she can trust. He knows who-and what-she is and still wants to be part of her life. But accepting Zane's help means putting him in danger. Dr. Jacobs, head of GTX, is not the only one hunting for Ariane. Two rival corporations have their sights set on taking down their competition. Permanently. To protect Zane and herself, Ariane needs allies. She needs the other hybrids. The hybrids who are way more alien and a lot less human. Can Ariane win them over before they turn on her? Or will she be forced to choose sides, to decide who lives and who dies?

I Give This ....

I tend to have a hard time with the second books in series.  But this was surprisingly fast paced, and very rarely did it have that typical middle of the series feel to it.

Ariane is still an interesting character to me because she does things that one might not consider normal.  Granted this is completely understandable because she isn't human.  Despite all the things she's been taught, her instincts aren't that of a teenage girl.    I really enjoyed that because I never quite knew what she was going to do next.  Even when you thought you knew were the storyline was going, it didn't play out exactly how you pictured.

 Can I say that I love the other hybrids!  Even if their mission is prove they are better than Ariane, I could help but be in awe of them.  I'm curious how they would like if this were to be made into a movie because in my head they are unequivocally other.  Their connection to each other was fascinating to me.  It seemed to be the only thing human about them.  

 I admired Zane's dedication to Ariane.  He was willing to follow her anywhere despite the danger and the personal anguish.  I imagine Ariane was just about the only person he felt connected to even though she struggled with how she felt (more so the humanness to it).

The cliffhanger was interesting.  It reminds me a little bit of another series I just completed.  I'm curious how it will play out!

Review - The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #1) by Erika Johansen

The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1)Title: The Queen of the Tearling
Author: Erika Joansen
Series: 1st
Pages: 448
Published: July 8th 2014 by Harper 
ISBN: 9780062290366
Source: Publisher for Arranged Tour

Description: On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown. Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust. But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend…if she can survive. 

I Give This ...

When I first agreed to be part of this tour, I had no idea that hype that already surrounded it.  I'm not one to follow books that have 7 figure movie right deals before they are even published.  That's a lot riding on this little book (and I'm not referring to it's page length).    I'm honestly glad that I didn't know all that because I think I was able to enjoy this book for what it was, and interesting mix of genres that I finished in 3 days flat.

Princess Kelsea is one of the most interesting characters I've ever been introduced to.  She's been raised to be Queen, taught in all matters that she may need to rule her kingdom.  Sadly, I think her education is slightly skewed to one couples opinions and majorly lacking in details.  How is she suppose to rule a kingdom with no prior knowledge of its inhabitants, trades, costumes, etc.  For awhile this really bugged me because I felt that Kelsea wasn't given the adequate tools to move forward.  Did no one expect her to live long enough to actually rule?

I found the world building interesting.  It's very easy to misread this and think this is a fantasy set in medevil times, and I think some discrepancies in that might cause people to become frustrated.  It's actually set way in the future, but society had reverted back to a medevil state, so there are some modern terminology.  I really enjoyed that mashup, although I wish it was explained more how the world came to this state.  The book occasionally takes about the landing, a new world, and old Europe, and old America but I'm not sure when some events take place relative to the events in the book.  And I would really like to know were this world is compared to the world we know now.

I loved some of the secondary characters.  Mace is the Chief of the Guard and he's kind of a mystery at this point.  These men have sworn their allegiance to the Queen, but really to Kelsea.  I think at first Mace especially didn't take Kelsea seriously.  But then again, she hadn't done anything to prove she was worthy of wearing the crown.  Mace is still hiding a lot from Kelsea though, and I'm not sure why he's allegiance includes not telling Kelsea anything about her mother.   I also really enjoyed The Fetch.  He's character is even more mysterious than Mace's but there's something fascinating about him.    I'm curious as to who is and what his role will be in this story.

I'm not so certain our villain is the Red Queen.  Sure she's ruthless and has a death grip on her kingdom and the neighboring ones.  But, I don't think she's the one in complete control.  I also find it strange that she has no name.  It makes me wonder if anybody outside her castle walls have seen her face.  There's also a whole lot of magic at work there, that the full picture hasn't come into focus yet.

I was truly drawn in to this story.  It was fast paced enough that I blew through it.  Kelsea has a lot to prove in a short amount of time and I enjoyed her ride to get there.  I'm looking forward to the rest of this series and what might come of a movie deal.

Unstoppable by S.R. Johannes Launch Date!

Unstoppable is the third book in "The Nature of Grace" series. The series has won and been nominated for several awards including: winner of the 2012 IndieReader Discovery Awards (Young Adult), a Silver medalist (2nd place) in the IPPY awards (YA Fiction). She was also nominated for 2012 Georgia Author of the Year (Young Adult category), a Finalist in The Kindle Book Review’s Best Young Adult of 2012, and a YA Finalist in the US Book News Best Book of 2012. 

Kirkus reviewed Untraceable as "A thrilling story is a dramatic entanglement of mystery, deception and teen romance.  The action flows like a brisk mountain stream interspersed with rapids, holding suspense to last page."

If you like a page turner, you will love this series!

Unstoppable - Book 3 Summary

After everything that has happened, Grace moves to the Everglades to live with her grandmother, Birdee, and hang out with old man Rex, Birdee's "friend with benefits". Grace quickly befriends Dylan, Rex's nephew, and Dylan's girlfriend, Sadie, who is a die-hard teen activist. Sadie spends her time leading protests against the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for animals or the flimsy law.

One day while out in the marshes of the Everglades, Grace and her friends rescue an abused—and endangered—Florida panther. She and Birdee spend time rehabilitating the animal. But when the panther runs off, Grace follows it to Uncle Bob's, a large roadside zoo they all have been protesting. One that is illegally filled with a variety of endangered and exotic animals. Before she can rescue the panther, she and her friends are kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge. 

Only this time, Grace is the prey. 

During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace and her friends are offered one chance at survival, but only if they reach civilization before being caught. With a small head start and very little supplies, only time and skill stand between the hunter and the hunted. But out in the Everglades, there may be more dangers than Grace realizes.

Against all odds, Grace must make it out alive and win, or everything she holds dear could be lost.
