One truth will unravel them all.

Faye Middleton thought the worst had come to pass the night she and her friends barely escaped from Ethryeal City and the clutches of the evil Priestess Clara. Officially shunned from the Coven, Faye is forced to lay low in order to come up with a plan to bring Clara down.

At Jaxen’s childhood manor, they were supposed to be safe from any outside issues, and they were… until his long-lost mother shows up. Determined to win back what she lost so long ago, Evangeline reveals a secret that could shatter their beliefs, or be their saving grace.

Now, with two Covens searching for Faye, they must find a way to start over. With the help of the Rebellion, they begin the arduous task of forming their own army. However, the choices they are faced with leave them questioning everything they’ve ever known.

Jan Review

Wow all the secrets that just come exploding out of this story just pack a punch and keep on coming.  The things that happen to these characters and what has happened are so heart wrenching. I for some reason was under the impression that this was the end of this wonderful series, though i have book 4 marked as to pick up.  When i got to the end i was like no no wait you can;t leave me like this.  Wonderful steamy story, a must read.

Sophie—now Catherine, Grand Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and settled in their own palace, things start to look up. As a new day dawns, Catherine thinks only of securing her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces that try to depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne, Catherine soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved Prussia and her new empire. While navigating the fragile political landscape, she quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled web of deceit and infidelity woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.

When a strange and delicate alliance forms between the young couple, Catherine glimpses a future of happiness, only to see it vanish at the hands of those who still seek to end her life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of options, Catherine must sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia if she is to save the nation and herself. To survive, she will have to do the unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.

Queen of Tomorrow is the enticing sequel to Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin. Find out why USA Today called the Queen of Someday, “a must-read romance!”

Jan Review

Let The Journey Begin, by Max Lucado, is a cross between a devotional, a gift book, and a book of advice. It is short (less than 200 pages) with around 70+ readings, all a page or two at most. In addition, nearly all the readings have a short quote or scripture to support them. It’s not quite a devotional, in that it isn’t all scripture or examination of scripture. Rather, it features selections from Max Lucado’s other books, which focus on topics that are Biblically-based but not all are tagged with specific references or verses. At the root of each selection is advice rooted in scripture, though. Some examples of topics include: Character Creates Courage; Rocking the Boat; Knowing God’s Will; Looking Forward in Faith; and What We Really Want To Know, among many others.

Book Review Storm Siren by Mary Weber

18806259

“I raise my chin as the buyers stare. Yes. Look. You don’t want me. Because, eventually, accidentally, I will destroy you.”

In a world at war, a slave girl’s lethal curse could become one kingdom’s weapon of salvation. If the curse—and the girl—can be controlled.

As a slave in the war-weary kingdom of Faelen, seventeen-year-old Nym isn’t merely devoid of rights, her Elemental kind are only born male and always killed at birth — meaning, she shouldn’t even exist.

Standing on the auction block beneath smoke-drenched mountains, Nym faces her fifteenth sell. But when her hood is removed and her storm-summoning killing curse revealed, Nym is snatched up by a court advisor and given a choice: be trained as the weapon Faelen needs to win the war, or be killed.

Choosing the former, Nym is unleashed into a world of politics, bizarre parties, and rumors of an evil more sinister than she’s being prepared to fight . . . not to mention the handsome trainer whose dark secrets lie behind a mysterious ability to calm every lightning strike she summons.

But what if she doesn’t want to be the weapon they’ve all been waiting for?

Set in a beautifully eclectic world of suspicion, super abilities, and monsters, Storm Siren is a story of power. And whoever controls that power will win.

Jan Review

Storm Siren is an impressive fantasy debut by Mary Weber. Her writing is thoughtful and at times even stunning, and her words have woven a powerful and inspiring story that promises to stick with me. I hope you decide to give this a chance; that way we can agonize over the conclusion together until the second book releases.  This book does not hold back any punches in regards to ripping your heart out by killing off characters and it totally guts you with ending that makes you want to jump right into book two which i am totally doing, dinner not getting cooked tonight lol.  Awesome start to a series that i will highly recommend as a must read now.

ARC Review Snow White Lies by Sarah J Pepper

25017567

“Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.

Jan Review

I have read 2 other of this authors twisted fairy tale confessions and i loved both.  Death of a Mad Hatter and Rapunzel Unhinged.  This author has the amazing ability to take the core of a fairy tale that we all read and spin it completely on its head.  You have all the core elements of the original story in this case, 7 dwarves, huntsman, the wicked queen and of course snow white.  Those characters all will play their parts but in an entirely mixed up, deliciously different way that leaves you gasping and entranced with each page you read.  Their was some steamy romance in here but nothing that made me go running for the hills, the violence is appropriate for an adult audience and gives the story that much more depth and intrigue.  You done it again Sarah you made me love an adult romance fantasy way to go.
