Dead Days (Season Three) by Ryan Casey

Standard

My Thoughts: With most book series they tend to lose their initial spark in their follow-ups, however that is not the case with Dead Days Season Three. Just when you think you’ve got everything sussed out Ryan Casey throws in another spanner in the works. In Season Three you follow Riley, Pedro and Chloe as they take individual routes to a ‘safe-place’ in Manchester. Riley teams up with a man who claims to have the cure. Pedro teams up with an unusual family, and Chloe, unfortunately, stumbles across the darker side of humanity. Continue reading

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

She Never Got To Say Goodbye by Ica Iova

Standard

 

My Thoughts:

She Never Got To Say Goodbye is a great paranormal fantasy and thriller with a lovely and satisfying ending. I enjoyed reading this book and it has been a delightful change from what I’ve been currently reading. The story is fast-paced and takes elements from a number of different genres, romance, mystery, action, paranormal and thriller. I think even the pickiest readers will have trouble finding nothing to appreciate here. Overall the story is well written, I noticed a couple of errors but nothing that detracts away from the story. Ica Iova has a beautiful and addictive writing style that will keep you turning the pages.

She Never Got To Say Goodbye is centred around two main characters, Olivia and Brandon. The story describes how they meet, fall in love, and how their relationship ultimately falls apart. The story then moves on to Olivia’s life as a ghost, Brandon’s life as a single parent, and the last part of the story introduces the life of the killer… Continue reading
