Reading Ideas – Shadow Witch Rising, by Colleen Vanderlinden (2015).

Witches… From what I can tell from the description this hook may be pretty good ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿ“–

Book Synopsis

Two people, bound by a powerful curse.

When Sophie Turner finally returns home to the sleepy tourist town of Copper Falls, she imagines the kind of life sheโ€™d always dreamed of: calm, quiet, and peaceful. After years of having her steps haunted by a powerful and devious stalker, she is now living on land settled by her ancestors. She can feel the magic in her blood responding, and she feels like she finally has the chance to build a life. Until he comes along.

All of her dreams of peace and calm come tumbling down the second Calder Turcotte enters Sophieโ€™s life. The danger he brings threatens everything sheโ€™s worked for, everything sheโ€™s tried to build for herself. He gives Sophie an ultimatum: break the curse her ancestor set on his family, or lose the very land thatโ€™s allowing her to heal. And as much as she despises him, as much as she fears him, sheโ€™s equally drawn to his icy gaze, his strength. Helping him is the right thing to do.

She never would have guessed how much sheโ€™d end up losing to save him.

She also has a goddess on her case. Kali wants her to fulfil a prophecy – only Kaz isn’t quite sure what that is. Her own power, the bloodthirsty inner voice she calls the other, is getting stronger. And as if that wasnโ€™t enough, her emotions are torn between Darius, the Warrior in love with her best friend; and Jack, dark, brooding, and a bit irritating.

Kaz finds herself navigating a dangerous path at great cost. The lives of those she loves are in danger, and her only hope of saving them is to solve the mystery of the prophecy even if it destroys her.

This could be a really good series… Demons…. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒŸ

Love the book cover ๐Ÿ“š

Book Synopsis

One goal: Hunt the demon that killed my family. Make that two goals: Survive.

It’s been over a year since Director Greene recruited me to join the CGE. Things aren’t exactly going as planned. I’ve been chased down by demons, I survived a vampire bite when no one ever has before, and last Phase, I found a demon that liked me because of my DNA. The thing is, I liked it back and I don’t know why.

I was convinced this year couldn’t be any worse, but I was wrong. Almost everyone is scared of me or hates me. People are saying I’m dangerous. They’re calling me a freak and a demon.

And I can’t argue with them when I think they might be right.

An abducted princess… Protection has waned….

This looks like it will be a good book ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Book Synopsis

For centuries, the kingdom of Alexandria has protected Northern Shala from the monstrous creatures lurking in the Wastelands. Now, a dark force threatens that fragile peace.

Far from home, Alexandriaโ€™s princess is abducted. When a young villager named Hellsfire stumbles upon her and her captors, he rushes in to rescue her, alone and unarmed. His fear and fury unleash an uncontrollable magical force that grants him the power to save the princessโ€”and change the world.

Hellsfire has never craved nor dreamed of power. But such magic as he now possesses has not been seen in Northern Shala for a thousand years, since the devastation of the War of the Wizards and the creation of the Wastelands.

Now Hellsfire must leave all heโ€™s ever known, and make a dangerous journey to learn to master this wild, ferocious powerโ€”power he knows he is not ready to wield. More difficult still, he needs to master his emotions. If he canโ€™t, the power will consume him, Alexandria will fall, and darkness will eclipse the land, destroying everyone he loves.

In the dead of cold, the spark shall burn…

Reading Suggestions: The Witch of the Hills, J. M. Fraser (2018).

This is a stunning Cover and really caught my eye ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿค”

Time travel, witchcraft and ancient prophecies…. Looks like something worth checking out.

Book Synopsis

Ancient prophecy compels a young Salem witch to travel forward through the time-bending dimension we all visit when we sleep. Rebecca Church must recruit a modern-day boy to save this interactive fantasy world from imminent disaster, but her task wonโ€™t be easy. She may use no more than poetry, illusions, and dreams to convince the chosen one of his destiny, and she can visit him only nine brief times.

When Brian Danahey meets Rebecca at the side of a desolate road, he recognizes her from a recurring nightmare about a girl in great danger. Brian falls in love with her, she disappears, and he comes to believe sheโ€™s the legendary Witch of the Hills, a colonial maiden exiled to haunt the western prairies for centuries. The quest to free Rebecca takes him through mirrors and time from the sand hills of contemporary Nebraska to the seventeenth-century witch haven she once called home.

But Rebecca doesnโ€™t need saving, and certainly not three-hundred-plus-years ago. The magical dimension that nourishes our souls is on the brink of apocalypse. Today.

Book Suggestions: Nocturna, by Maya Motayne (2019).

An adventurous tale full of magic ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š

Already receiving good recommendations, and added to my #mustread list ๐Ÿ“š โญ๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Book Synopsis

Magia Para Todos; Magic for all.

To Finnian Voy, magic is two things: a knife to hold under the throat of anyone who crosses her, and a disguise she shrugs on as easily as others pull on cloaks. As a talented faceshifter, it’s been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that’s exactly how she likes it. But when she gets caught by a powerful mobster, she’s forced into an impossible mission: steal a legendary treasure from Castallan’s royal palace or be stripped of her magic forever.

To Prince Alfehr magic is an escape, but one that comes with a price. First in line for the throne after the disappearance of his older brother, Alfie is desperate to find him and bring him home, even if it means dabbling in forbidden magic.

And when Finn and Alfie’s fates collide, they realise magic can be other things too, and the type they accidentally release into the world is something neither expects, or understands.

It’s hungry.
