Review: The Awakening

This is a contemporary fantasy. Things get interesting almost immediately as our main character, Breen, finds her mother has been hiding something very important from her. The father she thought had left them long ago, had left her an account with now a few million dollars for her. Her life to that point was full of stress as she had large school loans, and was pinching pennies trying to keep up with her bills. And things only get more and more interesting as the story goes on.

Cover The Queen of Blood

The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst

This is written like it's supposed to be plot-driven, but you can guess what will happen. The twists come from acts, that seem out of character. These moments pull you out of the story. This is probably an unpopular opinion since most reviews I heard about this book were great. I was excited to read the book finally but then had these moments pull me out of the book. This is one series I won't be continuing.

Review: Winter’s Fury

Almost right from page 1, I was hooked. The writing in this, did something I had not experienced in a long time. I picked it up and did not want to stop. I had a hard time finding "good places" to stop for the night, or before going to start my work day, and all too often, had to put it down desperate to know what was about to happen. I became slightly more productive at work because I was so focused on getting what I needed to done, because I wanted to get back to the story as quickly as possible.
