The Unfinished Song: Root (Book 4) by Tara Maya

Standard

Click here to see my blog on book 1 in this series.

My Thoughts: Heads up for new readers considering this series, there are going to be 12 books and each one so far ends on a cliffhanger. That being said, I am loving this series right now, the more I read the more I want to know.

The Unfinished Song Series is set in a very primitive almost neolithic time. There is a lot of violence and women especially, are sometimes treated badly. There are tribal clans with bizarre rules and complicated politics. The fae/fairies/fairy lords etc come in all sorts of sizes and forms and they are mischevious, beautiful and powerful. There is a lot of terminology, including character names, clan names, levels of fae, magic, etc. Tara Maya has thought out every detail extensively and as a result has created a believable fantasy world like no other.

I Am Phantom (Book 1) by Sean Fletcher

Standard

My Thoughts: I was up til 4am reading this book!

10/10 Stars for the opening paragraph! I loved the main character, Drake Sinclair’s, humour and attitude, the first two sentences had me completely hooked. I have to quote them…. ‘My day really began the moment the men shot at me. To set the record straight, it wasn’t my usual idea of fun.’ (From Chapter One: In Which I Screw Up)

I Am Phantom is a fast-paced, well-written, action-packed sci-fi and fantasy, with a good dose of humour. Written in the first person, the reader joins Drake at the beginning of this story in his relatively calm and peaceful family life at home just before he finishes school, and where his only worries are asking girls to prom, the school bullies, oh, and the freaky super powers he obtained during puberty. Drake Sinclair knows he isn’t normal, jumping ridiculously high, super speed, strength and healing abilities are not normal, however he has done a good job at dealing with and hiding his abnormalities so far…. That is before a mysterious figure shows up and turns the school prom into a disaster.

Drake Sinclair then receives a strange admission letter from a college out of state, one with a letter that promises to give him answers about his powers. Desperate for answers Drake accepts, but little does he know, the answers are more complicated and more disturbing than he had ever imagined. Drake is forced to choose how he will use his powers, and whether or not he will use them for good or bad. Continue reading
