Secretly trained, swordsmith Sage Blackwell steps up to run her family’s forge when her father falls ill. Sage desires to help the neglected Aermians but is bound by duty to provide for her own… Until, that is, she’s offered a chance to make a difference.


Sage knows the risks; imprisonment or death, and yet, she’s still willing to take them to protect her family. But when plans unravel, Sage finds herself facing the devils themselves, her sworn enemies, the princes of Aermia.


Tehl Ramses is drowning; crops are being burned, villages pillaged, and citizens are disappearing, leading to a rising rebellion. As crown prince, and acting ruler, Tehl must find a way to crush the rebellion before civil war sweeps through his beloved kingdom. He’ll do whatever is necessary to save his people. Yet, his prisoner is not at all what he expected.


Note: I received an ARC of this from the author. This in no way influences my opinion.

Unfortunately, this was a DNF for me. Which is a shame, because the plot itself was actually pretty good as far as I got (about 55%) – however, my issues mostly lay with the characters, which is, ultimately, why I DNfed.

I want to start with the good. I enjoyed the plot as far as I got. It was fast paced, it kept me on my toes and there was always something going on. I do feel like it sort of slowed down towards where I stopped reading, but I imagine it picks back up. I was told the ending by someone else who has read it (mostly because everyone was raving about the ending and I was just being a nosey tyke really) and I just… wasn’t all that impressed? Not sure if it was because I missed a beat by not reading the rest or whether it’s because I have high expectations because I read A LOT of fantasy, but it just didn’t wow me like it did others who finished this book.

My major issue with this book (and the ultimate reason for me putting it back down) was the characters. For me, it is really important that I form some kind of bond with the characters and, as a result, empathise with them. Unfortunately, I didn’t form this bond with the characters, despite the multiple POVs that were shown. I didn’t really care what happened to the characters and who lived or who died – so I found it really easy to just put the book down and do something else.

My other issue with the characters was that the multiple POVs began to bleed together after a time so, when I did put the book down to do something else, I had to try and remember whose perspective I was reading – which I mostly did through the interactions with the other characters. Whilst they were separate at the beginning – they did sort of change throughout and became too similar for me.

All in all, I actually quite enjoyed the plot (mostly) but my issues with the characters led me to stop reading the book. I gave this book 2/5 stars.

Dark Dreams and Dead Things by MartinaMcAtee


Dark Dreams and Dead Things by Martina McAtee

Published: July 15th 2016 – Self Published

17-year-old November Lonergan spent her whole life feeling like an outsider. She was right. She’s a reaper like her mother; like her two cousins, Kai and Tristin. The supernatural world believes they are part of a prophecy to save them from an evil known as the Grove. Ember just wants to survive high school and fix the fallout from bringing back her friend. 

Old enemies are lurking; waiting for their opportunity to strike but the pack has a new problem. A group of legendary hunters has resurfaced, threatening the reapers and anybody who stands with them. They are making good on their threats too; attacking those closest to the pack.

Their only hope of defeating the Legionaries involves trusting a stranger to perform a dangerous spell to advance Ember and her cousin’s powers. But Ember has a secret; a secret she can’t tell the pack. One that leaves the pack vulnerable.

An attack on pack allies, leaves one member of the group injured and another missing, along with a mysterious girl named Evangeline who may play a bigger part in this than any of them realize. As the Legionaries are closing in, the pack must trust their enemies, enter hostile territories, and play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a psychopath. Their entire plan lynches on a dangerous bargain, but rescuing one member of the pack could mean losing another in their place…possibly forever. 

DDDT is the second book in the Dead Things series and basically starts off where the previous one ends! I enjoyed this book as much as the previous and I cannot wait for the next instalment!

What I really enjoyed about this book was that it started where the previous one ended. There was no time lapse between events and I think it was done pretty smoothly! It also has a list of who the main people are, who they are connected to, what their powers are and who they are allied with. This was extremely useful because it helped to keep everyone straight.

I liked Ember in this book just as much as I liked her in the previous one. She remains an extremely relatable character and I think the author has done a good job of showing her long term reaction to what has happened and how it affected her mentally and physically! It definitely makes her even more relatable in this sense.  I still didn’t ship the ship that appears to be sailing where Ember is concerned and I just… I want someone else for her! I just don’t know who yet!

I was also really glad that we got to know more about Mace! In the first book, he was an extremely enigmatic character and we didn’t really find out much about him or his past in the first book! I am so glad we got to explore some of his past in this book because the mystery was killing me! I definitely think this insight into his character made him all the more relatable and definitely likeable in a different sense because you begin to sorry for him as a reader!

As a reiteration of my review of book #1, I TOTALLY SHIP THE SHIP!!! Kai and Rhys are even MORE adorable in this book because of RJ!!!!!!!!!! I love them and I always look forward to seeing more from them within the book and … let’s just say… I am waiting for the Sexual Tension (Yes it deserves caps) to finally be addressed because I SHIP IT!!! AND I WANT IT AND I SHIP IT… ugh

Ok, there is something that needs to be addressed here. Silas. If anyone who is reading this has read the books or is part of Martina’s Deadlings on fb, you will understand the ongoing feud that is Silas. If anyone was wondering on which side of the spectrum I fall, it would be #TeamSilas. I really really liked his character and I definitely view him as someone who is misunderstood! I cannot wait to see more of him in the next book!

I loved the introduction of all the new characters! They all brought something new and unique to the table and I am really looking forward to seeing how their characters develop as the series goes on…

The Plot of this book also kept up with the character development that happened. There was always something happening and it was just one thing after another and it really helped to keep me on my toes and to keep me turning the pages just to see what was going to happen next!

All in all I really enjoyed myself reading this book and I am definitely looking forward to the next instalment – especially after that ending!! I gave this book 5/5 stars.

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things by Martina McAtee


Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things by Martina McAtee

Published: August 31st 2015 – Self Published

17 year old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie. Standing in the cemetery that’s been her sanctuary, she’s threatened by the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she’s special, that she has a supernatural gift like them…they just don’t know exactly what it is. 

They take her to a small Florida town, where Ember’s life takes a turn for the weird. She’s living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember’s powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. Ember has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death. 

As Ember’s talents are revealed so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What’s worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friend’s lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she’s pieced together.

I basically went into this book with absolutely zero expectations… I hadn’t even really read the blurb before I even opened the book! So, I didn’t even know what I was walking into! I absolutely loved this book and I really enjoyed myself whilst reading this book! It was full of action, along with character development!

The story follows Ember, a seemingly normal girl who has a thing for the dead (which is a little bit creepy, lets be honest here). However, things quickly change and we find out that she is not really all that normal and that’s where all the fun begins! Her story is full of so man twisty turns and gasp moments and I absolutely loved it! I also really liked Ember! She was definitely relatable and I felt extremely sorry for her – and it was growing as we found out more about her and her past! I really loved her character and she is definitely someone I could imagine being friends with in real life!

I liked each and every character in this book. There wasn’t a character that was really surplus to the story because each and every one brought something to the table that changed the story in one way or another. Even characters we meet very briefly at the beginning of the book are intertwined and tied in somehow to the bigger picture and it made for some fantastic plot twists and moments that you really just weren’t expecting.

This book was told from multiple perspectives, which means the book (and the characters) are always in danger of melding together so that they become difficult to distinguish from one another. This was definitely NOT the case with this book and every character had their own personality and quirky traits. I loved the differences between all the characters and I had no issues determining between the characters or trying to figure out which character I was reading if I put the book down in the middle of a chapter.

Let me just talk about Kai and Rhys for two seconds. THEY ARE SO FRICKIN’ ADORABLE AND MY HEART CAN’T EVEN TAKE IT BECAUSE…ADORABLE!! *Ahem* I ship the ship and I will always ship the ship because this ship is life. 🙂

Let’s also talk about Mace and Ember… I like them both, don’t get me wrong, and after the ending, I think its kinda cute. However, I personally don’t ship them. I just don’t feel the spark like I did with Rhys and Kai, which means, I personally think there is more to it and I think something is going to happen… which will make sense to me! I just need to read book two!

The ending was so bittersweet! I didn’t even know what to do with myself! I felt so sorry for everyone but at the same time… I DON’T EVEN KNOW!! Ugh. It was a great ending, ok?

All in all, I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to grab a copy of book two! (which will hopefully be soon!). I would definitely recommend this book to everyone! I gave this book 5/5 stars.

Waiting on Wednesday and Cover reveal


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine

Hey guys!! This weeks Waiting on Wednesday is being combined with a cover reveal!! Now, this cover reveal is for a sequel in a series (which I consider to be severely underrated because it is AWESOME). The cover is exceptionally beautiful and I absolutely cannot even wait to have this book in my hands!!!

Eternity Fades.jpg

Eternity Fades by Katelyn Anderson

Fallen hero? Traitor? Villain? Joan lost her way long before having her bloodlust taken from her. Left to pick up the scattered pieces of the assassin life she once knew, she discovers secrets that will change everything. The agency she sought to bring down contains undiscovered horrors, but Joan learns there is something far more frightening threatening the lives of everyone. No human or immortal is safe from the evil that lurks in the shadows. Can Joan and her allies stop the darkness from destroying life as they know it? Or will they be too late to stop evil from being unleashed into the world?

Excuse me whilst I go and hibernate… This cover is just… everything!!! #coverlove! Also, the first book in this series (Everlasting Flame) is actually perma-free, which means, you guys should be checking it out ASAP and adding it to your TBR’s on Goodreads!! You can find the book on Smashwords. I honestly cannot stress how awesome the first book was and I am even more excited to see what happens next – especially after the way things ended in book 1!!

Everlasting Flame by Katelyn Anderson


Everlasting Flame by Katelyn Anderson

Published: July 30th 2016 – self published

Joan becomes involved in a war that will change her life forever. She discovers that the world holds many secrets, even magic beyond her wildest dreams. The existence of immortality drove humanity to the edge. Humans are hunting Joan’s kind to extinction. Circumstances force her to act. She wishes to put an end to the slaughter of innocent Tainted Beings. Only she has the courage to step up. How far can a hero fall before they became a villain? The road of revenge is a dangerous and slippery path. That doesn’t stop Joan from making the ultimate decision of becoming an assassin. Her true test is to prevail and not become consumed by darkness. Will she succeed or will she turn into the monster she was trying to destroy?

Note: I received a review copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.

Can I just say WOW!! Whilst this book took me a little bit to get emotionally involved, when I was it was a rollercoaster of emotions! It had me on edge, laughing and crying with the characters. Also, THAT ENDING!!!! SERIOUSLY!! WHAT WAS THAT ENDING! *Ahem* I’ve had stern words with the author (AKA my friend) and she was apologetic… but not at the same time. This book broke me in a lot of ways.

I absolutely LOVE Joan. She was hilariously sassy and didn’t know when to stop. She is one of those characters that you just wish existed because you know she will be your best friend if she did. She never held back, even if she knew it would get her into trouble. I loved that she treated everyone the same, despite ranking, and she would put you on your arse if the occasion called for it. She does a certain something to a certain Russian… lets just say CRINGEWORTHY!! Pretty sure Katelyn was laughing at my hilarious spam the entire time. She goes through a lot throughout the entire book and it makes you want to wrap her up in bubble wrap and never let her go. I felt so sorry for her it was unreal!

Dane is my new babe. Lets put it that way! He absolutely scared the hell out of me and he was still a character, by the end of the book, that I would not want to run into in a dark alleyway. However, I, personally, think that he is misunderstood. I think there is more to him than meets the eye and I cannot wait to find out what his story is! I’m so excited for the next book because I want to know what made him the way he is! He is ruthless, constantly threatening Joan and generally a pretty creepy guy!

Lorenzo and Damian are the fictional family members that I don’t have! I loved them both, but I didn’t entirely ship Lorenzo with Joan. For me, they were more like a brother sister relationship, rather than a couple. *ahem* Dane *Ahem*. They were both hilarious and sarcastic, but they were also serious when they needed to be. They both help Joan when she needs it most and they are generally cute! I really want to know more about Damian and his past – which we briefly touch on, but I am definitely looking forward to getting to know him more. I would’ve liked to have seen more of Damian within the book, but his wife is pretty scary… so I guess it’s probably better that we didn’t!

Cyrus…. Where do I even begin with Cyrus?? He is a ruthless assassin who only really cares about himself… until he does something really nice to redeem himself – and then he goes and does a dick move!! SERIOUS DICK MOVE!!!! He needs to be shot really… but no one comes close because he is the worlds best assassin… go figure! I want to know more about him and I hope he can really redeem himself because what he did was NOT COOL!

The plot itself was absolutely AMAZING. There were so many plot twists and there was never really a quiet moment where you could, as a reader, take a breath and calm down. I say this because, everything came one after the other after the other, which all led up to the horrible, horrible ending. I don’t know enough words to do the plot justice, just know that it was great! And you guys seriously need to get in on this book!

That ending BROKE ME UP INTO A THOUSAND PIECES!!!! I was bawling like a baby, spamming the author and telling her that I hate her. It was THAT BAD!! I still don’t forgive Katelyn for that! Seriously. Ugh… its one of those endings that you really don’t want to talk about because it was so awful, but you need to talk about it because it was important to the story and without it, it wouldn’t have worked. This doesn’t mean I’m happy. Im royally miffed. I actually put the book down and didn’t want to read the last 10%. Yeah… *DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP BREATHS!!!*

The only real issue I had with this book was that it took me a little bit to actually get into the book itself. I found it a little difficult to become emotionally attached because I wasn’t feeling the characters grief – if that makes sense? However, that all changed pretty quickly and when I did get into it, it was AMAZING!!!

I absolutely loved this book and I cannot wait to read more from this series! I really want to get to know Dane and Damian more because I NEED to know their stories. Also… still holding out hope here for DANE AND JOAN!! Because I totally ship them. Even if Dane is REALLY scary and constantly threatening to shoot Joan. With reason because she is sassy and doesn’t know when to shut up 😛 I cannot wait for the next instalment in this series and gave this book 4/5 stars!

Gothenland. Blue spruce and twisted rivers, hidden mysteries and long lost legends conquered and overrun by the neighboring Kingdom of Pölz in a hundred-year war. Beaten and broken, the Gothen, an enigmatic race of black-clad warrior poets and nocturnal mystics, has dwindled to but a handful of wounded souls, and the uncertain truce binding the two nations is lost, in one night, when the King of Pölz is murdered during a lavish feast to honor the betrothal of young Princess Jadwiga Agnieska to the Czar of Kievan.
Ilse, Mother of Gothen, is accused of the crime.
Her only hope rests in a man of secrets and shadows, myths and mists, a man who will stop at nothing to fulfill the ancient words of a sacred prophecy Ilse heard once as a little girl.

Vault of Dreams by Luke Taylor

vault of dreams

Vault of Dreams by Luke Taylor

Published: July 31st 2016 – Self published

Albanland. Emerald hills and ice blue lochs, bordered by Nørds raiders and the haughty monarchs of South Angle, each dynasty eager to seize lands weakened by a civil war in which a usurper has risen to seize the cloven throne.
Morgance, Faer Princess of the Night.
And by her side, the fearsome Ultan Skölhammer, sworn Guardian of the Crown.
But Rhoswen, rightful heir to the throne, princess in exile, leads a final uprising from the depths of the forest, an uprising that twists together the lives of the most unlikely companions.
A notorious thief accused of a crime she did not commit.
A baird apprentice searching for the meaning of life.
A pair of brothers who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
And a gypsy bound to the ancient artifact known only as the Vault of Dreams.

Note: I received a signed ARC copy of this book from the author. This on no way influences my opinion.

For all you regular readers out there, you guys know how excited I was about this book. I think I have been raving about it for weeks now! To say I loved this book would be an understatement!! I need more from this authors works – especially because this book was a standalone and left me reeling! I am going to do this in more of a list style so that this review stays as coherent as possible!


– The POV’s. I think every readers worry is that when a book is told from multiple POV’s, they begin to blur and they don’t have voice of their own. This is not the case with this book. Every character is so different, it was easy to remember where I had left off and with which character because they were all so unique. I loved all of the characters for different reasons – even though they were all so different! (well, maybe except Morgance… She needs a kick).

  • Each and every character grew and changed in some way throughout this entire book. Whether they changed for better or for worse, they did and it was interesting to watch. I think the character who made the biggest change in my mind was Morgance – she went from being this meek, mild girl, to crazy and scary usurper and I didn’t like her one bit. All she needed was to turn green and she could have been the wicked witch – like Once Upon a Time!!
  • This book is pretty fast paced. There was always something going on, so it never got boring. I never felt once like there was an info dump like with many books! I feel like the information flowed and fit well into the story and it all came at the right time!
  • Can I adopt Niles and Nevan? Seriously? They are so adorable and amazing and funny and … I just adore them, ok? So, adoption?
  • The writing itself was amazing. It was almost lyrical and it just drew me in from the very beginning! Everything was so well described, I felt like I could have been standing there with the characters and experiencing everything that they were. It was easy to fall in love with this book based on that fact alone!
  • Aerlyn. She was easily, from the get go, my favourite character in this book. She went through a lot herself, but she overcame that throughout the book and I loved watching her grow. I felt really sorry for her at the end of the book (without giving too much away) and I spoke to Luke about it  – because I can. I feel like Aerlyn deserves her own Novel or novella!
  • Quill was also another favourite of mine! I don’t want to say too much, or give too much away, but I think anyone who reads this book and gets to know Quill, will love him from the first time you see him!!

I had two issues with this book, and no more:

  • There were very basic grammatical errors. Words written wrong, spelt wrong etc. Very basic, but sometimes it distracts from the story itself. it didn’t happen often within the book, but it did happen.
  • I wanted more about the Vault of Dreams itself. I loved following the story, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like it needed more about the VoD – especially because thats the title!!

All in all I absolutely adored this book and I am so glad to say that the author became a friend along the way! I absolutely loved the writing within this book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author!! I gave this book 4/5 stars.

Waiting on Wednesday

red wolf road

Red Wolf Road by Luke Taylor

Expected Publication: February 2017 – Self Published

When Ryder Lasko was sixteen, her best friend died in a car crash.

Two years later, Ryder’s Dysthymia is so bad she refuses to go to school, won’t eat, and has barricaded herself in her room, staring out the window to the spot where her best friend perished in a fireball of gasoline, glass, and plastic.

Ryder Lasko just doesn’t want to live anymore.

And so her parents send her to spend Christmas break with her Grandmother, a reclusive billionaire, hoping Ryder can find comfort and purpose in the arms of her Grandmother’s palatial estate and its many riches.

But when Ryder arrives, her Grandmother is nowhere to be found, and a mysterious note leads Ryder deep into the snowbound woods surrounding the mansion, where she meets a woman with eerie blue eyes and a wolfish smile.

Her name is Lucinda Morgan Fox.

And she is hungry. 

For power. For wealth. For revenge.

For blood.

This retelling of Little Red Riding Hood sounds so amazing – I don’t think I can wait so long to read it! I may just do a quick trip to America and steal his laptop!! Maybe pay him in cheesecake!
