The one year Stabilization period has ended, and the aliens are colonizing earth! Allistor and his people have prepared as well as possible, and now they’ll find out if it was enough.
In this third book of the Shadow Sun series, Earth’s survivors continue to fight for their lives, and to reclaim as much of the earth as they can for the human race. More than one alien faction threatens their existence, while others prove to be staunch allies. Allistor and company learn more about the system, its mechanics and politics, and take the first step in bringing the fight to their enemies off-world!
The first in a fantastic fantasy series that will most likely remain completely epic throughout the ages. The Fellowship of the Rings is the beginning of what can only be described as a journey to end it all. We are introduced to a species called Hobbits or halfling as they are often known as. These amazing creatures have their own sort of magic, being able to withstand evil influences better than most races in middle earth.
Frodo a hobbit from the Shire, becomes a central character when he inherits a long lost ring from his uncle Bilbo and finds himself in danger he and his friends, Samwise, Pippin, and Merry had never believed were possible. With help and instruction from several friends, they manage to travel to Rivendell, where the Fellowship of the ring is born.
The Fellowship consists of members of a variety of races. Legolas the Elf, Gi mi ti the Dwarf and even Gandalf who at the time is a wizened old grey Wizard. This mismatched bunch start out on the journey that will end a time of evil by taking the Ring to mount Doom to be destroyed.
What is the book about?
I would have to say that the the most interesting and enjoyable sections to read revolve around the Hobbits and their flight from the Shire. It is during this journey that Sam’s loyalty to Frodo comes to the surface. Particularly when Sam speaks of Strider, the stranger met at Bree.
What I didn’t like about this book
I have to admit I have enjoyed book one of the Lord of the Rings series. It has everything required in an epic fantasy novel with th much more depth than I thought possible. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the fantasy genre. overall, I give this book a rating of 8.5/10 stars.
Some book titles and covers can really catch ones eye. This one does just that. I think this could be well worth the read. The second book in The Sworn Saga.
Meredith Rider, known as Red, has been captured once more by Sworn soldiers and taken to the capital of the werewolf empire. There, she is forced to train with a group of other captive girls in the arts and graces of the Chosen, the unlucky human girls whose DNA is compatible with that of werewolves.
In other words–breeders.
Red isn’t about have babies for the enemy. She’s going to escape or die trying.
And her conflicted feelings for the darkly handsome, cruelly cunning Vixor Rae, the Sworn champion of the Alpha who goes by the nickname Silver Wolf, are only going to get in her way.
The title and cover both really draw my attention, and now after reading the abstract I think I will give this book a chance.
The upheaval in my life began the moment a prince stumbled into my house and asked me to read his fortune. Any other night, I might have made an excuse to get him to leave, but this was no normal visit. My fingers prickled to touch him. So, I granted his request by handing him a single wishbone. When he snapped it, the wish … bled.
Hearing me suck in a shocked breath, he asked what it meant. Such an ominous omen could only mean one thing: his death was imminent. Fate revealed that he wouldn’t die of natural causes. Someone wanted him dead. Stunned by the revelation, the man I now knew as Prince Tauren disappeared into a night I feared he wouldn’t survive.
The following day, I received an invitation to the castle. While it seemed the prince believed I could intervene and uncover who was plotting his death, his motives didn’t stop there. I was being summoned to join twelve other women in vying for the opportunity to be his wife and future queen. Going could mean jeopardizing my plans to reclaim my heritage and resurrect the House of Fate. But staying would guarantee Tauren’s death, and the blood of his wish would be on my hands.
Love the idea of this book. Definitely something to check out. Now on my #couldbe list! 📚✍️💫😊⭐️📖🔮
Essie would do anything for her kingdom…even marry an elf prince she just met that morning.
The human kingdom of Escarland and the elven kingdom of Tarenhiel have existed in an uneasy peace after their last wars ended with both kings dead. As tensions rise once again, desperate diplomacy might be the only way to avert war. If only negotiations between elves and humans were that simple.
When a diplomatic meeting goes horribly wrong, Essie, a human princess, finds herself married to the elf prince and warrior Laesornysh. Fitting in to the serene, quiet elf culture might be a little difficult for this talkative princess, but she’s determined to make it work.
With impending war and tenuous alliances, it will be up to Essie to unite her two peoples. And maybe get her hands on elven conditioner while she’s at it.
Could be good. Love the look of this cover 📖☕️😊🌻📚💫
Callypso Lillis is a siren with a very big problem, one that stretches up her arm and far into her past. For the last seven years she’s been collecting a bracelet of black beads up her wrist, magical IOUs for favors she’s received. Only death or repayment will fulfill the obligations. Only then will the beads disappear.
Everyone knows that if you need a favor, you go to the Bargainer to make it happen. He’s a man who can get you anything you want … at a price. And everyone knows that sooner or later he always collects.
But for one of his clients, he’s never asked for repayment. Not until now. When Callie finds the fae king of the night in her room, a grin on his lips and a twinkle in his eye, she knows things are about to change. At first it’s just a chaste kiss—a single bead’s worth—and a promise for more.
For the Bargainer, it’s more than just a matter of rekindling an old romance. Something is happening in the Otherworld. Fae warriors are going missing one by one. Only the women are returned, each in a glass casket, a child clutched to their breast. And then there are the whispers among the slaves, whispers of an evil that’s been awoken.

They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.
When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.
Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed.
Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him.
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she’ll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.
This looks like it could be good. Something to add to the #mustread list
Once I was a fae princess with sea-magic at my fingertips. Now? I’m a hunted supernatural in a squalid shop, stripped of my power. My only comforts are stale cookies, Elvis records, and my hula-hoop. Then a lethally sexy fae king arrives and rips even those away.
After the brutal king throws me in prison, I strike a bargain with him: my freedom in exchange for helping him find a magic blade. What Lyr doesn’t know is that the blade might restore my stolen magic.
But as we journey, the gorgeous jerk starts to make me feel things I’ve never felt. When Lyr touches me, desire ignites. I see raging passion in his eyes too. If I give in, I risk losing my chance at reclaiming my power…and, even worse, I could be forfeiting my life.
different way to use magic in a storyline! It’s not completely unique but the
way in which magic’s and Angels are used in this tale is fantastic. A lot of
the characters names are familiar from modern religions which I think makes the
text more relatable to readers.
begins with the awakening of Liliathe and her re-emergence into a world she had
worked to create for her own means. With the use of Angel magic and her own
Mage talents, she sets off events that domino into big trouble!
I found the
book to be well written, using intelligent prose and holding just the right
amount of humour. I believe this book would appeal to many young adults who
enjoy the fantasy genre. I feel that it was just not quite as
“complicated” in comparison to my normal reads. It’s not that I found
the novel lacking or boring, I just found it difficult to focus in some areas.
this book has kept me interested throughout and has been an enjoyable read.
Hope to see more great things from this author in the future. I recommend this
not only to YA age group, but to anyone interested in fantasy. I give this book
a rating of 7/10 stars.
