Darynda Jones is a writer that has such a great skill for creating humorous and clever
dialogs between her characters that you can be sure to have a good laugh reading her series.

This latest installment of her Charley Davidson series is action pact, funny and hot like
any of the previous we enjoyed.

There will be some major revelations, some moments where you just have to laugh out laud,
some very hot and spiced scenes ( every page on which Reyes appears is hot and spiced is it not ;) )
a lot of mystery, great friendship, romantic moments, heartbreak minutes, and everything else that we are used to get delivered by Darindas skillful writing.
And of course a sweet and intriguing ending, just to makes as wish for the next book to read as soon as possible.
I recommend this book very much for urban fantasy lovers .

You can read my review of the previous book here .

What a beautiful morning!
 Not so by looking to the murky weather outside my window but more for looking on my phone screen :)

 Still in bed i cast a glance at my e-mails and there they where!

 Cobweb Forest, Book Three of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy is out and i am offered a free copy to do my review thing again :)

Yay!
I am very happy to have a chance to read the sequel so soon after i finished the 2. part . Can't wait to cuddle up and start reading
( sorrowfully not right now, as piles of laundry and some dishwasher unloading have priority).

And the second good news is (it's the second not because is less important or less good but because it was in my inbox a bit later)  that i am offered to do a blog tour for
 A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr ( by Bethany House Publishers).Yay again!

I am still a very "young" 42 year old blogger and maybe not so very active on the daily basis like some, so i still get exited when offered books and tours freely from publishers, not having to chase after them my self and ask for books to review:)

So,yeah .It's a happy morning and now i am off to make breakfast for my kids, coffee for hubby and me   and then..sigh off to the battle with laundry and dishes ;)

(Check in later  for some free giveaways as i am kindly offered  to  share my happiness by sharing some nice books)
Bye!

Cobweb Empire




TITLE:
Cobweb Empire
(Cobweb Bride Trilogy #2)

Author: Vera Nazarian
Release Date:
  September 25th 2013
Source: received from the author for review





Imagine a world where no one is dying.
Yay that's a great idea - you would say at first.But think about it.It's not just that you would become immortal or that your loved ones would never have to depart from you.Think about the sick, think about the old people already on there dying bed...
They wouldn't just jump up, become healed,healthy and young again. No,they would be sentenced to endless suffering with no sleep or rest.Nothing can die.Not the old,dying grandma,not the assassinated beautiful princess,not the little child who fell and hurt it self, not even the pig who was on the slaughter table at the moment when death stopped.Still thinking this is a good idea for a world to be? I think not.But it is how it is.Mr.Death him self decided it is time for him to have a bride,but he cant find her.He doesn't now how she looks like nor where she is but he can feel her somewhere in the world.So he decides to stop doing his job until the bride comes to him.

   This is the story that we learn of in the first installment of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy.

In this second sequel we will have the honor to join the journey of Persephone through the land at war against the dead armies,on her way to find the Cobweb Bride.
If i would write any more of it it would have to much spoilers so i'll just say that you can expect to engage a handsome,dark knight;a cute and clever peasant girl by the name of Persephone,some spoiled aristocrats;a funny, heartwarming, middle-aged witch;a clever mare;a noble death princess,an assassin in love and regret,and a lot more beautiful and deeply developed characters that will grow to you and become your best friends and foes.

A worthy sequel if not even better as the first part! Such beautiful and poetic writing... The story starts a bit slow at the beginning but takes a nice turn later on with more romance and action. Some really clever parts like the nature of the Lethe river and the final chapter revelation, where i almost thought-OK this is the end, nice and happy-turned to be a huge surprise and smart cliffhanger. They made me smile and happily think of future hours spend reading the promised third part... hopefully sooner rather then later. Thumbs up dear Vera, for this beautiful sequel and thank you for sending me the book when i asked for it.I am very much recommending this serial and i can't wait to lay my eyes on the third book:)

                             I was pleasantly surprised by this story.
It was one of the ARC-s i acquired from Netgally and i kind of started reading it more because i am due over to do some reviews then because i was in a reading mode.But the story managed to suck me in right from the beginning (i so love books that don't drag) and kept me interested to the very end.

There isn't much i can say about the summary without doing some major spoilers, so I'll just keep it short.
This is a story about few teenage boys who are awakened on some tropic island with a memory loss.
The main character vaguely remembers his ant calling him Danny Boy so this is how everyone else start calling him. There are weird things happening on the Island and as the story develops more and more is reviled and the suspense and the curiosity will keep you reading deep into the night.
The Characters are very good developed all though i would maybe give Danny few years more then 13 considering his maturity and to the way he responses to all the events that are happening to him.
I am a mother of a 13 year old boy so i couldn't avoid compering. Some things that Danny said were hard to imagine coming from a 13 year old, but on the other hand - he is some kind of genius so maybe he shouldn't be compered to ordinary kids that age :).

I so can see a movie made of this book,it has all the necessity's for a great sf thriller:) 

Looking forward to read the next part.

Goodreads summery :

When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds.

Reed dreams of a girl that tells him to resist Foreverland. He doesn’t remember her name, but knows he once loved her. He’ll have to endure great suffering and trust his dream. And trust he’s not insane.

Danny Boy, the new arrival, meets Reed’s dream girl inside Foreverland. She’s stuck in the fantasy land that no kid can resist. Where every heart’s desire is satisfied. Why should anyone care how Foreverland works?

 Genre:
Fantasy
Science Fiction

Romance
Alternate History

Author:Kate Elliott
Release Date of the last sequel:  June 25th 2013
Publisher: Orbit
Source: Advanced reading copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


My new favorite series!
Actually, my new favorite author!
Oh how i longed to find someone like Kate Elliott!
I have few favorite authors and have read everything they have written so i found my self in an empty void, looking around for more good books and writers but found nothing really spectacular lately...
I just couldn't sniff out any more authors like Anne McCaffrey, Robin Hobb, Trudi Canavan... until now :)


There are a lot of great reviews out there so i wont write just an other one as you can Google them, but i will recommend this trilogy wholeheartedly  to everyone who likes to read a quality fantasy book, with an amazingly built world,deep characters, action packed adventure, warm love story, very original magic - it just has everything a fantasy lovers heart would wish for!

Summary from Godreads:



It is the dawn of a new age... The Industrial Revolution has begun, factories are springing up across the country, and new technologies are transforming in the cities. But the old ways do not die easy.

“I was not a bard or a djeli or an historian or a scribe and I was certainly not a sage, but that didn't mean I wasn't curious…”

Young Cat Barahal thinks she understands the world she lives in and her place in it, but in fact she is merely poised, unaware, on the brink of shattering events. Drawn into a labyrinth of politics involving blood, betrayal and old feuds, she will be forced to make an unexpected and perilous journey in order to discover the truth, not just about her own family but about an ancient secret lying at the heart of her world.

Cat and her cousin Bee are part of this revolution. Young women at college, learning of the science that will shape their future and ignorant of the magics that rule their families. But all of that will change when the Cold Mages come for Cat. New dangers lurk around every corner and hidden threats menace her every move. If blood can't be trusted, who can you trust?

From one of the genre's finest writers comes a bold new epic fantasy in which science and magic are locked in a deadly struggle.


Only one thing is certain: when Hallows' Night comes, the Wild Hunt will ride - and it feeds on mortal blood.

Cat and her cousin Bee are caught in a maze of intrigue, treachery, and magic. Everyone seems to want something from them: the Cold Mages are trying to take them prisoner, and the warlord who wants to conquer all of Europa seems sure they have a special destiny to aid him whether they want to or not. Worse, hidden powers deep in the spirit world are rising, and they are the most dangerous of all. Cat must seek allies and figure out who she can trust in order to save the ones she loves. For if she doesn't, everything will be lost.

I enjoyed the read. It was a nice change to the usual fantasy genre i am reading.A fast paced romance-mystery novel with a drop of paranormal.The only thing that spoiled it to me and made me give it 3 instead of 4 stars is the ending. It doesn't solve anything.It leaves you feeling like someone teared out half the book. It doesn't even feel like the usual cliffhanger..more like an unfinished chapter. I really don't like when books end this way. I suppose i wouldn't mind if i had the sequel already at hand but being as this is the first part and the others are not written yet, it just leaves me annoyed having to wait who knows how long to find out what will happen next.And the book is good enough that i will be asking my self this for some long time.

Short summary:

Two girls are hold in the attics whole there life.Because one of them is a uncontrolled fire starter, so it's for the safety of the household.One day one girl is kidnapped and she finds out unbelievable facts about her self and her life.

Goodreads summary:
It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?

Did you ever watch the Tv series Gilmore Girls? Well if you did ,you will know what type of hilarious and funny person Charley Davidson is.Just like Lorelei.I kept imaging her that way.

Ok,so when a friend of mine asked what is this  book about and i told her a short summary..it kind of sounded ..cliche-full and stupid..so she looked at me with an raise eyebrow and slowly nodded her head..not very convinced in my good book taste...but she was so wrong :))

Underlying text contains previous books spoilers so don't read it if you haven't read all the books before this one.


So the main character is a girl called Charley Davidson and she is ..well a grim reaper.Actually
she is a portal to heaven ,she can see dead people and they have to cross through her to get to heaven.Sounds lame? Well it isn't :P

She is in love with not less then the..Son of Satan! I know you laugh now..but when you start reading about Reyes..cause that's his name ,your laugh will stuck in your throat and you'll have a heavy breathing problem i can tell you!
So his father is the most beautiful angel to fall from heaven, Lucifer. And Reyes had been created there, by Satan's image , forged in the fires of sin. Hence his allure.

Reyes is Satan’s plan to get out of hell and  into heaven. With Charlie and Reyes, he would have a direct door into the very realm he’d been kicked out of.Because Reyes is a portal to hell.

And beside being unearthly beautiful and sexy  ... He is a reader!. George R. R. Martin and Tolkien to Ursula Le Guin and Asimov.  He has all those books in his apartment Do you need more prove he was made to be loved by us? 10

In stead of killing Charlie and bringing her to Hell and his Father,Reyes falll in love with her and became her protector.Awwwwww.....


That's kind of the core of the series .Everything else is building around this main story .So in every sequel (and there are 5 so far but will be more) we read about a different case Charlie is on ,because she is a private investigator ,her father and uncle are cops  and she helps them solving cases.That always include help from death people of course.

But the most entertaining thing is the amazing sense of humor that the writer managed to express almost  in every sentence and act Charlie does. You cant stop smiling reading this book.Well only when you are heavy breathing when Reyes comes on the page..:P



It is one of this books you can't let out of your hands and even it has ca 350 pages i managed to finish it in 2 reading nights ( i did suffer of heavy leads and blurry  eyes the whole day after mind you) because it was so good .

So go on read it,don't be appealed by the seemingly cliche story..its really all working out perfect :)

Brandon Sanderson never disappointed me!
Yet again he managed to create a beautiful book,with an (again) unique magic system,with very likable and believable characters you can easily connect. The story sucks you inn from the very start.It is about a boy that is different then others,not quite accepted,struggling to tag along because of his lack of magic but anyway a student at a famous magic academy.
I recommend it for all the Harry Potter lovers out there,for all the teens that yearned for something new and exciting and last but not least,for us adults who still have the kid inside:)
Here is a short synopsis from Goodreads:
As the son of a lowly chalk maker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing — kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery — one that will change Rithmatics — and their world — forever.

Darynda Jones is a writer that has such a great skill for creating humorous and clever
dialogs between her characters that you can be sure to have a good laugh reading her series.

This latest installment of her Charley Davidson series is action pact, funny and hot like
any of the previous we enjoyed.

There will be some major revelations, some moments where you just have to laugh out laud,
some very hot and spiced scenes ( every page on which Reyes appears is hot and spiced is it not ;) )
a lot of mystery, great friendship, romantic moments, heartbreak minutes, and everything else that we are used to get delivered by Darindas skillful writing.
And of course a sweet and intriguing ending, just to makes as wish for the next book to read as soon as possible.
I recommend this book very much for urban fantasy lovers .

You can read my review of the previous book here .

What a beautiful morning!
 Not so by looking to the murky weather outside my window but more for looking on my phone screen :)

 Still in bed i cast a glance at my e-mails and there they where!

 Cobweb Forest, Book Three of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy is out and i am offered a free copy to do my review thing again :)

Yay!
I am very happy to have a chance to read the sequel so soon after i finished the 2. part . Can't wait to cuddle up and start reading
( sorrowfully not right now, as piles of laundry and some dishwasher unloading have priority).

And the second good news is (it's the second not because is less important or less good but because it was in my inbox a bit later)  that i am offered to do a blog tour for
 A Draw of Kings by Patrick W. Carr ( by Bethany House Publishers).Yay again!

I am still a very "young" 42 year old blogger and maybe not so very active on the daily basis like some, so i still get exited when offered books and tours freely from publishers, not having to chase after them my self and ask for books to review:)

So,yeah .It's a happy morning and now i am off to make breakfast for my kids, coffee for hubby and me   and then..sigh off to the battle with laundry and dishes ;)

(Check in later  for some free giveaways as i am kindly offered  to  share my happiness by sharing some nice books)
Bye!

Cobweb Empire




TITLE:
Cobweb Empire
(Cobweb Bride Trilogy #2)

Author: Vera Nazarian
Release Date:
  September 25th 2013
Source: received from the author for review





Imagine a world where no one is dying.
Yay that's a great idea - you would say at first.But think about it.It's not just that you would become immortal or that your loved ones would never have to depart from you.Think about the sick, think about the old people already on there dying bed...
They wouldn't just jump up, become healed,healthy and young again. No,they would be sentenced to endless suffering with no sleep or rest.Nothing can die.Not the old,dying grandma,not the assassinated beautiful princess,not the little child who fell and hurt it self, not even the pig who was on the slaughter table at the moment when death stopped.Still thinking this is a good idea for a world to be? I think not.But it is how it is.Mr.Death him self decided it is time for him to have a bride,but he cant find her.He doesn't now how she looks like nor where she is but he can feel her somewhere in the world.So he decides to stop doing his job until the bride comes to him.

   This is the story that we learn of in the first installment of the Cobweb Bride Trilogy.

In this second sequel we will have the honor to join the journey of Persephone through the land at war against the dead armies,on her way to find the Cobweb Bride.
If i would write any more of it it would have to much spoilers so i'll just say that you can expect to engage a handsome,dark knight;a cute and clever peasant girl by the name of Persephone,some spoiled aristocrats;a funny, heartwarming, middle-aged witch;a clever mare;a noble death princess,an assassin in love and regret,and a lot more beautiful and deeply developed characters that will grow to you and become your best friends and foes.

A worthy sequel if not even better as the first part! Such beautiful and poetic writing... The story starts a bit slow at the beginning but takes a nice turn later on with more romance and action. Some really clever parts like the nature of the Lethe river and the final chapter revelation, where i almost thought-OK this is the end, nice and happy-turned to be a huge surprise and smart cliffhanger. They made me smile and happily think of future hours spend reading the promised third part... hopefully sooner rather then later. Thumbs up dear Vera, for this beautiful sequel and thank you for sending me the book when i asked for it.I am very much recommending this serial and i can't wait to lay my eyes on the third book:)

                             I was pleasantly surprised by this story.
It was one of the ARC-s i acquired from Netgally and i kind of started reading it more because i am due over to do some reviews then because i was in a reading mode.But the story managed to suck me in right from the beginning (i so love books that don't drag) and kept me interested to the very end.

There isn't much i can say about the summary without doing some major spoilers, so I'll just keep it short.
This is a story about few teenage boys who are awakened on some tropic island with a memory loss.
The main character vaguely remembers his ant calling him Danny Boy so this is how everyone else start calling him. There are weird things happening on the Island and as the story develops more and more is reviled and the suspense and the curiosity will keep you reading deep into the night.
The Characters are very good developed all though i would maybe give Danny few years more then 13 considering his maturity and to the way he responses to all the events that are happening to him.
I am a mother of a 13 year old boy so i couldn't avoid compering. Some things that Danny said were hard to imagine coming from a 13 year old, but on the other hand - he is some kind of genius so maybe he shouldn't be compered to ordinary kids that age :).

I so can see a movie made of this book,it has all the necessity's for a great sf thriller:) 

Looking forward to read the next part.

Goodreads summery :

When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds.

Reed dreams of a girl that tells him to resist Foreverland. He doesn’t remember her name, but knows he once loved her. He’ll have to endure great suffering and trust his dream. And trust he’s not insane.

Danny Boy, the new arrival, meets Reed’s dream girl inside Foreverland. She’s stuck in the fantasy land that no kid can resist. Where every heart’s desire is satisfied. Why should anyone care how Foreverland works?

Alternate History

Author:Kate Elliott
Release Date of the last sequel:  June 25th 2013
Publisher: Orbit
Source: Advanced reading copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


My new favorite series!
Actually, my new favorite author!
Oh how i longed to find someone like Kate Elliott!
I have few favorite authors and have read everything they have written so i found my self in an empty void, looking around for more good books and writers but found nothing really spectacular lately...
I just couldn't sniff out any more authors like Anne McCaffrey, Robin Hobb, Trudi Canavan... until now :)


There are a lot of great reviews out there so i wont write just an other one as you can Google them, but i will recommend this trilogy wholeheartedly  to everyone who likes to read a quality fantasy book, with an amazingly built world,deep characters, action packed adventure, warm love story, very original magic - it just has everything a fantasy lovers heart would wish for!

Summary from Godreads:



It is the dawn of a new age... The Industrial Revolution has begun, factories are springing up across the country, and new technologies are transforming in the cities. But the old ways do not die easy.

“I was not a bard or a djeli or an historian or a scribe and I was certainly not a sage, but that didn't mean I wasn't curious…”

Young Cat Barahal thinks she understands the world she lives in and her place in it, but in fact she is merely poised, unaware, on the brink of shattering events. Drawn into a labyrinth of politics involving blood, betrayal and old feuds, she will be forced to make an unexpected and perilous journey in order to discover the truth, not just about her own family but about an ancient secret lying at the heart of her world.

Cat and her cousin Bee are part of this revolution. Young women at college, learning of the science that will shape their future and ignorant of the magics that rule their families. But all of that will change when the Cold Mages come for Cat. New dangers lurk around every corner and hidden threats menace her every move. If blood can't be trusted, who can you trust?

From one of the genre's finest writers comes a bold new epic fantasy in which science and magic are locked in a deadly struggle.


Only one thing is certain: when Hallows' Night comes, the Wild Hunt will ride - and it feeds on mortal blood.

Cat and her cousin Bee are caught in a maze of intrigue, treachery, and magic. Everyone seems to want something from them: the Cold Mages are trying to take them prisoner, and the warlord who wants to conquer all of Europa seems sure they have a special destiny to aid him whether they want to or not. Worse, hidden powers deep in the spirit world are rising, and they are the most dangerous of all. Cat must seek allies and figure out who she can trust in order to save the ones she loves. For if she doesn't, everything will be lost.

I enjoyed the read. It was a nice change to the usual fantasy genre i am reading.A fast paced romance-mystery novel with a drop of paranormal.The only thing that spoiled it to me and made me give it 3 instead of 4 stars is the ending. It doesn't solve anything.It leaves you feeling like someone teared out half the book. It doesn't even feel like the usual cliffhanger..more like an unfinished chapter. I really don't like when books end this way. I suppose i wouldn't mind if i had the sequel already at hand but being as this is the first part and the others are not written yet, it just leaves me annoyed having to wait who knows how long to find out what will happen next.And the book is good enough that i will be asking my self this for some long time.

Short summary:

Two girls are hold in the attics whole there life.Because one of them is a uncontrolled fire starter, so it's for the safety of the household.One day one girl is kidnapped and she finds out unbelievable facts about her self and her life.

Goodreads summary:
It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?

Did you ever watch the Tv series Gilmore Girls? Well if you did ,you will know what type of hilarious and funny person Charley Davidson is.Just like Lorelei.I kept imaging her that way.

Ok,so when a friend of mine asked what is this  book about and i told her a short summary..it kind of sounded ..cliche-full and stupid..so she looked at me with an raise eyebrow and slowly nodded her head..not very convinced in my good book taste...but she was so wrong :))

Underlying text contains previous books spoilers so don't read it if you haven't read all the books before this one.


So the main character is a girl called Charley Davidson and she is ..well a grim reaper.Actually
she is a portal to heaven ,she can see dead people and they have to cross through her to get to heaven.Sounds lame? Well it isn't :P

She is in love with not less then the..Son of Satan! I know you laugh now..but when you start reading about Reyes..cause that's his name ,your laugh will stuck in your throat and you'll have a heavy breathing problem i can tell you!
So his father is the most beautiful angel to fall from heaven, Lucifer. And Reyes had been created there, by Satan's image , forged in the fires of sin. Hence his allure.

Reyes is Satan’s plan to get out of hell and  into heaven. With Charlie and Reyes, he would have a direct door into the very realm he’d been kicked out of.Because Reyes is a portal to hell.

And beside being unearthly beautiful and sexy  ... He is a reader!. George R. R. Martin and Tolkien to Ursula Le Guin and Asimov.  He has all those books in his apartment Do you need more prove he was made to be loved by us? 10

In stead of killing Charlie and bringing her to Hell and his Father,Reyes falll in love with her and became her protector.Awwwwww.....


That's kind of the core of the series .Everything else is building around this main story .So in every sequel (and there are 5 so far but will be more) we read about a different case Charlie is on ,because she is a private investigator ,her father and uncle are cops  and she helps them solving cases.That always include help from death people of course.

But the most entertaining thing is the amazing sense of humor that the writer managed to express almost  in every sentence and act Charlie does. You cant stop smiling reading this book.Well only when you are heavy breathing when Reyes comes on the page..:P



It is one of this books you can't let out of your hands and even it has ca 350 pages i managed to finish it in 2 reading nights ( i did suffer of heavy leads and blurry  eyes the whole day after mind you) because it was so good .

So go on read it,don't be appealed by the seemingly cliche story..its really all working out perfect :)

Brandon Sanderson never disappointed me!
Yet again he managed to create a beautiful book,with an (again) unique magic system,with very likable and believable characters you can easily connect. The story sucks you inn from the very start.It is about a boy that is different then others,not quite accepted,struggling to tag along because of his lack of magic but anyway a student at a famous magic academy.
I recommend it for all the Harry Potter lovers out there,for all the teens that yearned for something new and exciting and last but not least,for us adults who still have the kid inside:)
Here is a short synopsis from Goodreads:
As the son of a lowly chalk maker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing — kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery — one that will change Rithmatics — and their world — forever.
