{ARC Review} Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan

{ARC Review} Wicked Saints by Emily Duncan

Wicked Saints is the first book in the dark fantasy series, called the Something Dark and Holy series by author Emily A. Duncan. I am all about dark fantasy, so I was super excited to dive into a new world. And even better if it is the first book to a new series. Wicked Saints has a lot of things that I really enjoy in a book. I really liked that the magic system was intertwined with politics and religion. I loved the russian inspired setting. That is a setting that I don’t read about too much in the young adult fantasy realm, but it is a fascinating landscape. I had a few pacing issues with the story, but I am still interested to see where this series will go from here. Wicked Saints is the story of a holy war between Kalyazin and Tranavia that has been going on for centuries. At the root of this holy war is magic. More specifically, the ability to talk to the gods… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Battlefield Love by Skyler Andra & Mila Young

{Review+Giveaway} Battlefield Love by Skyler Andra & Mila Young

Battlefield Love is the first book in the new adult operation cupid series by Skyler Andra & Mila Young. The operation cupid series is a mythology and fantasy romance, that has a really cool premise. You all know I am a sucker for anything mythology, and I love Mila Young’s Gods and Monster’s series so much, so I was extra excited to see what they would do with another mythology series. The coolest part of Battlefield Love is the world setup and the treatment of the gods of greek and roman mythology. I did have a small issue with one aspect of the story, but I love the setup and Battlefield Love has all of the makings and potential to be an awesome series. I can’t wait for the next book. In Battlefield Love we meet our main character, Locke is just a normal woman, until Eros (the Roman version of Cupid) pulls her into the world of Gods and their human Avatars. The concept of Avatars is one that… Read more »

{Guest Post+Giveaway} Final Year by MJ Moores

{Guest Post+Giveaway} Final Year by MJ Moores

Today I have the author of final year here to tell us 5 things we didn’t know about the main character, Jeremy. Top 5 things I didn’t know about Jeremy He has a step-father. As a plotter, I tend to know (for the most part) what’s going to happen (the major things anyway), so when Jeremy revealed that his mother and step-father were away in Arizona I was completely shocked. Then it clicked in my head – the whole reason he took to over-eating as a child was due to the fact that his father left. His mom overcompensated by equating love to food and showering it on Jeremy.   When Jeremy made the decision to lose weight and get healthy, I had no idea that in addition to joining a gym, he’d get into kick-boxing! His determination to push himself started with fitness and ebbed into his school life. His need to prove himself “worthy” fueled him, but the ache of losing someone he loved prevented him from making… Read more »
