Have You Heard? Lament of The Fallen by Andy Peloquin is ON FIRE!

Bucelarii-2-Small

First of all, I want to congratulate the author, Andy Peloquin, for his well-deserved win of the 2017 RONE Award for Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi book. Ironically, this happened just as I finished reading book two in The Last Bucelarii series, Lament of The Fallen, which is the very book I am reviewing now.

Lament of The Fallen … Lament of The Fallen. I didn’t really get this title until I was well into reading this book, where I discovered what a perfectly matched title Andy had chosen for this story. Perhaps, if one thinks about it long and hard, a reader will come to grasp a tiny piece of what this book is about simply by playing it on repeat in one’s mind. I’ve never expounded thus on a book title prior to this one, but it just goes to show how deeply this story touched me, no, grabbed me, on every spectrum of the emotional scale.

The Hunter continues his quest from book one, Blade of The Destroyer, in this second gripping, emotionally devastating story. Yes, devastating. The author shredded my heart in pieces as it broke over and over and over again for the Hunter, a magnificent anti-hero (he can be my hero forever), a ruthless killer with a ginormous heart who refuses to take orders from the demons living inside him. If you want a full on synopsis of Lament of The Fallen, please visit Andy Peloquin’s various social media platforms to inquire further. I absolutely abhor spoilers, and I’m not going to start writing them now.

As far as how this story impacted me, all I can say is, “Wear your armor when reading this one. You’ll need it.” There were so many times I wanted to cry my eyes out, to reach inside the pages of the story unfolding before my eyes to ease the pain, suffering, and deception experienced by the Hunter. Who would have thought I’d ever feel compassion on such a strong magnitude for a killer? Ahhh, but the Hunter is no typical killer – he has a heart.

If you haven’t yet begun reading this exquisite artist’s work, I highly encourage you to do so now. Caution: if you have to get up early the next morning for work, you may want to postpone reading Andy Peloquin’s beautifully creative works of art until the weekend. You will stay up long after your usual bedtime, turning the pages (or swiping to the next) as quickly as possible to discover just what happens next.

In my truly honest opinion, Andy Peloquin is the most creative writer I’ve read to date, and yes, this includes every other book I’ve ever read in my life. Lament of The Fallen…just do it, but start on book one in the series, Blade of The Destroyer. Oh! And don’t forget my very favorite book of all time by the same author, Child of The Night Guild – a must read, blow your mind kind of story!

Now, I’m on to read book three, Gateway to The Past.

Have You Heard My Review of Anguish, Book 1 in the Journals Trilogy by DM Earl?

Anguish.jpg

I gave this awesome story a five-star rating because it just has all the elements needed for a great romantic suspense: a troubled heroine (Quinn), a sexy male (Stone), a best friend (Ivy), and an evil man who is bent on destroying Quinn’s family. I was captivated on page one of the prologue. Such statements as these really piqued my interest:

“How the f*ck did I end up like this; afraid of my own shadow, living isolated from the entire world?”

“Since the day that ‘It’ happened, the only thing that has helped me maintain my sanity is writing things down – my thoughts, dreams, nightmares, and fantasies – they all go into my journals.”

I don’t do spoilers, but this racy book kept my attention completely, and I read it in one day. Don’t pass up the opportunity to read this great story. It’s full of love, hate, revenge, murder, romance, friendship, and trust. Great work, DM Earl! I’ll be reading the rest of this series.

Have You Heard’s Review for Deamhan by Isaiyan Morrison

Deamhan was absolutely enchanting. This is not a romance story, and I’m finding myself drawn more and more closely to stories without all the romance, though I do love a good romance too.

Deamhan captured my attention right away. The four types of Deamhan, vampires, black magic, and humans. What do they all have in common? Deamhan. This is not your typical ‘vampire’ story; no, it’s so much more. Very intense, full of suspense, twists, turns, and intrigue, I didn’t want to put this down. I pride myself on my knowledge of words, but Isaiyan Morrison actually had me using the definition option for a few great words. I’m impressed.

Thank you so much for a great read!! I am eager to delve into the next book in the series to discover what happens next. The small cliffhanger left in Deamhan has certainly piqued my curiosity. Well done, Isaiyan Morrison! Well done!

Have You Heard? My Review of an EXCEPTIONAL BOOK, Child of the Night Guild by Andy Peloquin

Child of the Night Guild

It’s a rarity that a book leaves me speechless, unsure if I’ll be able to give the story its proper and most deserving credit. Child of the Night Guild by Andy Peloquin has done just that to me. I’ve been ruminating over how to give this beyond phenomenal story its due. Child of the Night Guild took me completely by surprise. This is the first book I’ve read by Andy Peloquin and it most definitely will not be my last. I will read everything he publishes in the future. The reason I picked up this book is that I noticed how Andy Peloquin wrote when he did takeovers. I am very impressed when I see amazing writing skills by an author, and Andy Peloquin is creative writing at its finest!! Believe his statement when he writes, “I am an artist. Words are my palette.” It’s true. This author has a way with words that is extremely rare, and most struggle to find this level of quality in writing, including me.

Child of the Night Guild was full of surprises, twists, turns-things I didn’t see coming at all. The story of a young girl who is determined to survive no matter the cost. And survive she does. Not only that, she refuses to let anyone else be better at what they do than she. Back alleys, abuse, thievery, tragedies, successes … it’s all there. This is one story you do not want to miss.

This is not your typical story of romance, HEAs, erotica; nope, none of that exists in this book. Still, there is love of the best kind. Are you scrolling through your Kindle in hopes of finding that next, DIFFERENT story? Look no further. You’ll find everything you’re seeking in Child of the Night Guild by Andy Peloquin.  I don’t know how I’m going to make it until book two is released in June. I’m so thankful I found this author’s work.

BLURB

“They killed my parents. They took my name. They imprisoned me in darkness. I would not be broken.”

Viola, a child sold to pay her father’s debts, has lost everything: her mother, her home, and her identity. Thrown into a life among criminals, she has no time for grief as she endures the brutal training of an apprentice thief. The Night Guild molds an innocent waif into a cunning, agile outlaw skilled in the thieves’ trade. She has only one choice: steal enough to pay her debts.

The cutthroat streets of Praamis will test her mettle, and she must learn to dodge the City Guards or swing from a hangman’s rope. But a more dangerous foe lurks within the guild walls. A sadistic rival apprentice, threatened by her strength, is out for blood.

What hope does one girl have in a world of ruthless men?

Have You Heard about my review of The Sleeping Serpent by Luna Saint Claire?

I almost don’t know where to begin. I feel as though I literally just lived through the pain, humiliation, and emotional roller-coaster of a woman who loved a narcissistic sociopath. Based on actual events, The Sleeping Serpent by Author Luna Saint Claire, drug me through highs, lows-ups and downs-in such a way I can only describe by saying, “You can’t make this stuff up.”

I’m not going to lie. I had a difficult time sticking with this read. There were times I felt like not finishing the story because there was just so much detail to everything, but I am so glad I hung in there because Luna Saint Claire simply had to include the details in order to effectively tell this story. 

Wow. Just, wow! This story was so intense I wanted to get on Google and research the actual newspaper archives to find the stories Luna Saint Claire wrote about in The Sleeping Serpent. Though I struggled a bit to keep reading this book, I was completely hooked toward the end and Luna wrapped up this story in a way that left me completely in shock, stunned silent, wondering how in the world I was going to be able to write a review to describe this journey I just emotionally traversed.

I must give credit where credit is due. I don’t know how Luna Saint Clair managed to finally free herself from the addiction and abuse of loving a narcissistic sociopath. I absolutely loved and respected her husband’s character in this book, and I’ll just say how very fortunate she was/is to have a husband who was emotionally healthy enough to love her through this, as well as being able to set a perfect balance of boundaries, without control, in his marriage to Luna Saint Claire.

I recommend this read to those who want more than a glance into a story, based on actual events, that will take them for an emotional, physical (yes, the sex is intense and very graphic), and mental experience like I just went on by reading The Sleeping Serpent.

Kudos to you, Luna, for your strength, bravery, and honesty when sharing this tragic story of your love for Nico, and your ability to make it out of there alive.

Have You Heard? Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters is LIVE!

With every book Pepper Winters publishes, I think to myself, “She can no longer surprise me. Pepper has already written her best work yet.” Then, she publishes another one and I am flat out WOWED! How does Pepper Winters write such exceptional books, time after time, over and over again?? One would think, at some point, she would grow dull. This is most definitely NOT the case. Pepper Winters absolutely stunned me with her new, Truth and Lies duet, consisting of Crown of Lies and Throne of Truth.

In Crown of Lies, Pepper Winters introduces a strong female and a sexy bad boy … but who is Nameless?? I devoured every page of Crown of Lies like I would my favorite dessert. This series is so unique and the characters are extremely well developed. A chance meeting, an intentional meeting, and a whole lot of questions, intensity, and passion are wrapped up in the pages of both Crown of Lies and Throne of Truth.

When I finished reading Crown of Lies, I truly wanted to throw my Kindle. Yes, I really did. There is a huge cliffhanger in Crown of Lies, but thankfully this author released Throne of Truth only a month later, so I wasn’t left waiting too long. Contrary to my feelings after reading book one, with Throne of Truth, Pepper Winters answered all my questions and wrapped up this stunning duet with a fabulous HEA conclusion.

Having read several of Pepper Winter’s masterpieces, I now know I will never figure out how she does it-writing stories that take me on an emotional journey the likes of which I’ve not experienced in most other stories. She is deep. She is harsh. She is extreme. She is a legendary author and one I will follow as long as she’s publishing her outstanding imagination with us.

Read Crown of Lies and Throne of Truth, The Truth and Lies Duet. You will thank me for my high recommendation.

Have You Heard? Vanished by T.K. Leigh is LIVE and AMAZING!!!!

15941073_1840193716192735_931852390462015708_n

I just can’t believe what T.K. Leigh did with this book, Vanished. Full of twists, turns, and unexpected surprises I never saw coming. As I read through every delightful and gripping page, I kept thinking, “I know what she’s going to do next,” because, well – I’ve read all her published books and I arrogantly believed I could figure out what she would write next.

Wrong!

T.K. Leigh delivered a perfect blend of shock, suspense, intensity, and with every page, my emotions were pulled, pushed, and dragged all over the place. Having read the incredible Beautiful Mess series by T.K. Leigh, she wrapped up this fourth spin-off book with the same level of excellence I’ve read in everything she writes. I expect nothing less than exceptional when I read this author’s art.

21924502

If you haven’t read Vanished, or A Beautiful Mess series (book one is perma-free), this is one series you will fall in love with-over and over again. I am absolutely in mad love with Mr. Alexander Burnham, his special lady, “Olibia,” and now, in this gripping conclusion to the Beautiful Mess series, their sweet daughter, Melanie, who disappears without a trace.
