Each year, I try to create a reading challenge that’s not only fun and challenging but also realistic. This year, I set the bar pretty high, and couldn’t be happier with the results.

I’ve discovered a lot of new authors and exciting books in 2021 and can not wait to see what next years challenge will bring.

Review: A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer Armentrout

Born shrouded in the veil of the Primals, a Maiden as the Fates promised, Seraphena Mierel’s future has never been hers. Chosen before birth to uphold the desperate deal her ancestor struck to save his people, Sera must leave behind her life and offer herself to the Primal of Death as his Consort.   

However, Sera’s real destiny is the most closely guarded secret in all of Lasania—she’s not the well protected Maiden but an assassin with one mission—one target. Make the Primal of Death fall in love, become his weakness, and then…end him. If she fails, she dooms her kingdom to a slow demise at the hands of the Rot. 

Sera has always known what she is. Chosen. Consort. Assassin. Weapon. A specter never fully formed yet drenched in blood. A monster. Until him. Until the Primal of Death’s unexpected words and deeds chase away the darkness gathering inside her. And his seductive touch ignites a passion she’s never allowed herself to feel and cannot feel for him. But Sera has never had a choice. Either way, her life is forfeit—it always has been, as she has been forever touched by Life and Death.

MY REVIEW

Sera’s future has never been hers. Chosen before birth to uphold a desperate deal her ancestors struck, Sera must become the consort to the Primal of Death. She may not be a well protected Maiden, but rather an assassin with one important mission. Make the Primal of Death fall in love with her, become his ultimate weakness, and end him. If she fails her mission, her kingdom will be doomed…

When we first meet up with Sera, we discover that she’s never been treated like a member of the family. She’s just a means to an end that had no choice but to fulfil her destiny. Nothing she did was ever good enough and when things don’t go as planned, life gets progressively worse for Sera. That is until a mysterious man enters her life. Immediately drawn to one another, their explosive chemistry will leave readers dying for more.

Sera is one awesome heroine. She takes no prisoners and isn’t a damsel in distress. She’s loyal to a fault and while trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes, she’s doing the best she can with all that life has thrown at her. Then we have Nyktos AKA the Primal of Death AKA Ash. Not only is he a God, but he plays a pretty heavy roll in Sera’s destiny. He is one tough character with the alpha tendencies we’ve come to know and love from this author. Together these two have terrific banter and a slow burning romance. And if you follow my reviews regularly, you’ll know that I’m not the biggest fan of slow burns, but JLA, sure made it work with this book.

A Shadow in the Ember is an intriguing read from beginning to end. With addictive writing and a compelling storyline, A Shadow in the Ember will keep readers on the edge of their seat and keep them guessing the entire time. This story has wonderful characters that pull you into their story instantly and leave you desperate to learn more. There’s romance, intrigue, and fate. There’s lots of world building and questions for the reader. There’s a ton of action and betrayal lurking around the corner. I loved all the twists and turns. It seemed like there were a ton of surprises just lurking around the corner. And just when I thought I had a handle on things, the carpet was pulled out from under me and I was left with one thrilling cliffhanger.

A Shadow in the Ember is an excellent companion novel to the Blood and Ash Series. This story left me spellbound and utterly captivated. I have a ton of questions and can not wait to find out all of the answers. JLA has pulled out all of the stops with this book. And in the end, all I can say is “Hold on readers! You are in for one heck of a ride.”

Review: Last Guard by Nalini Singh

Review: Last Guard by Nalini Singh

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to a world devastated by change in her award-winning Psy-Changeling Trinity series, where two people defined by their aloneness hold the fate of the Psy in their hands…

Termed merciless by some, and a robotic sociopath by others, Payal Rao is the perfect Psy: cardinal telekinetic, CEO of a major conglomerate, beautiful—and emotionless.

For Canto Mercant, family and loyalty are everything. A cardinal telepath deemed “imperfect” by his race due to a spinal injury, Canto cares for the opinions of very few—and ruthlessly protects those he claims as his own. Head of intel of the influential Mercant family, he prefers to remain a shadow in the Net, unknown and unseen. But Canto is also an Anchor, part of a secretive designation whose task it is to stabilize the PsyNet. Now that critical psychic network is dying, threatening to collapse and kill the entire Psy race with it.

To save those he loves, Canto needs the help of a woman bound to him by a dark past neither has been able to forget. A woman who is the most powerful Anchor of them all: Payal Rao. Neither is ready for the violent inferno about to ignite in the PsyNet…or the passionate madness that threatens to destroy them both.

MY REVIEW

Last Guard is the 5th book in the Psy-Changeling Trinity Series and it follows the story of Canto and Payal. Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. Last Guard hits the ground running and never looks back. This book had a lot going on and didn’t hold back. From an intriguing plot-line to characters you can’t help but root for, this reader couldn’t help but fly through this story.

Canto and Payal are really intriguing characters. I enjoyed getting to know them and their story. I really liked the two of them together and looked forward to seeing how their story would play out. I will say, because this book is heavily plot-driven, the romance isn’t as much as a star as I’d like it to be. Yes, the romance was there and I enjoyed Canto and Payal together, but I was left feeling disappointed because I didn’t connect with them as much as I was hoping for and wasn’t left with the feels and emotions I had anticipated.

My other issue or concern with the Last Guard was the amount of information being thrown at the reader. OMG was there a lot going on in this book! Now, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a plot-driven book, but sometimes when there is so much going on, it makes it hard to keep up with/keep track of and it becomes overwhelming.

While a really interesting read, the Last Guard is one of those books that will be a hit for some and a miss for others. I really wanted to love this book, but in the end this book was just an ok read for this reader. Even though this story wasn’t a 100% hit for me, I’m still glad to have given it a try.

Review: Grace and Glory by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Grace and Glory by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Danger, betrayal, and enticing forbidden love clash in book three of #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Harbinger trilogy!

When Angels Fall

Trinity Marrow has lost the battle and her beloved Protector. Even with both demons and Wardens on her side, Trin may not win the war against the Harbinger.

Bringing Lucifer back to the world to fight the Harbinger is probably a really, really bad idea, but they’re out of options—and the world’s ultimate fallen angel is the only being powerful enough to impact the outcome.

As Trin and Zayne form a new and more dangerous bond and Lucifer unleashes Hell on earth, the apocalypse looms and the world teeters on the end of forever. Win or lose, one thing is certain—nothing will ever be the same.

MY REVIEW

“What’s inside you is the gift. It is both grace and Glory, a power that is beyond what your mind can comprehend and yet a power owned by you. Use it to strike through the heart encased in chaos.”

“You are all I ever wanted, even before I knew what I wanted. It was you. It was always you.”

Grace and Glory is the epic finale to the Harbinger Series. It will captivate readers from the very first page and in true JLA fashion, it will take you on one wild and emotional ride…..

Grace and Glory picks up right where the last book left off and hits the ground running. I didn’t know what to think or feel. I was surprised by the turn of events and didn’t know how things would play out. But, one thing I knew for certain is that I implicitly trust JLA, so I just sat back and enjoyed the ride.

The battle between good and evil, an unimaginable ally, and a love story that knows no bounds. Everything has come full circle now and believe me when I tell you, Trinity and Zayne’s story is riddled with shocking twists and turns. There’s so much action to keep you guessing and on your toes. Trinity and Zayne’s journey this time around is not an easy one. There are so many obstacles in their way, including the end of the world. All I can say is that their journey was worth every heart-pounding moment…

As I sit here trying to write my review, I feel like a bit of an emotional mess. This book was everything that I was hoping it would be. It was funny when it needed to be and filled with action. There was romance and a love worth fighting for. There were twists and turns around each corner. I loved getting lost in this book and this series. It was everything I needed and I am so incredibly sad that it’s over. I truly hope that this won’t be the last that we see of these characters…

Review: The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes book three in her Blood and Ash series…

She’s been the victim and the survivor…

Poppy never dreamed she would find the love she’s found with Prince Casteel. She wants to revel in her happiness but first they must free his brother and find hers. It’s a dangerous mission and one with far-reaching consequences neither dreamed of. Because Poppy is the Chosen, the Blessed. The true ruler of Atlantia. She carries the blood of the King of Gods within her. By right the crown and the kingdom are hers.

The enemy and the warrior…

Poppy has only ever wanted to control her own life, not the lives of others, but now she must choose to either forsake her birthright or seize the gilded crown and become the Queen of Flesh and Fire. But as the kingdoms’ dark sins and blood-drenched secrets finally unravel, a long-forgotten power rises to pose a genuine threat. And they will stop at nothing to ensure that the crown never sits upon Poppy’s head.

A lover and heartmate…

But the greatest threat to them and to Atlantia is what awaits in the far west, where the Queen of Blood and Ash has her own plans, ones she has waited hundreds of years to carry out. Poppy and Casteel must consider the impossible—travel to the Lands of the Gods and wake the King himself. And as shocking secrets and the harshest betrayals come to light, and enemies emerge to threaten everything Poppy and Casteel have fought for, they will discover just how far they are willing to go for their people—and each other.

And now she will become Queen…

MY REVIEW

“No risk is too great, no is anything too sacred. Because she is my everything. There is nothing grater than her, and I do mean nothing.”

“The heart doesn’t care how long you may have been with someone.” “It just cares that you have the person for as long as you can.”

At 600+ pages The Crown of Gilded Bones hits the ground running, and is filled with a lot of great story-building, shocking surprises, answers to our burning questions, and is going to take readers on one heck of a wild ride.

The Crown of Gilded Bones was everything that I was hoping for and then some. This book picks up right where A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire left off and doesn’t hold back. I didn’t it was possible to love Casteel and Poppy more than I already do, but Jennifer Armentrout gave me a million more reasons to love them. Casteel and Poppy are #couplegoals! Their chemistry and passion for one another are off the charts and I simply can’t get enough of it. They are the ultimate power couple, a force to be reckoned with….

In The Crown of Gilded Bones, we get a lot of answers and are left with a handful more. I loved seeing all of the pieces come together and all of the omg moments. This story kept me on the edge of my, wondering what would happen next. I’ll be honest with you, I had no idea how things were going to play out and I loved it. I loved all of the surprises, twists, and jaw-dropping moments.

The Crown of Gilded Bones exceed my expectations and was a thrilling ride right to the very end. The ending was fantastic and in my opinion, is just a taste of what’s to come. The stage has been set. Tensions are extremely high. I’m on pins and needles dying to know how this is all going to play out in the end. One thing I know for certain, Jennifer Armentrout is going to hit me with all of the feels and keep me helplessly glued to the pages.

In the end, all I can say is, settle in, cancel your plans, and curl up with this fantastic book. Your world is about to be rocked and I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I did.

Another day, another step closer to Hell on Earth being unleashed.

With every piece that falls into place for the queen of the Underworld, Kymaris gains strength and power that will make it more difficult to defeat her when the time comes. It feels as if we’re in a desperate race to get just one step ahead of her, but my demise feels closer than it ever has before with still so much to do.

The first order of business is to unlock the angelic powers with which I was gifted at birth, and Carrick insists on getting help from my archnemesis to do so. Yes, I have to save the world, but my priority has now become rescuing my sister from the Underworld. While there are many questions still to be answered about my long-lost twin, I know I will not win this battle without her by my side.

In the midst of all the doom and gloom, Carrick has become my beacon of shining light. Our connection unimaginable, my heart recognizes his as the other half of its whole. Inexplicable and deeper than one could ever imagine, the love I hold for him is forged by destiny, however ill-fated it may turn out to be.

And those are the feelings I must hold close…to keep me going. Because a painful lesson is on the horizon—betrayal never comes from your enemies.

EXCERPT

The minute Boral leaves Carrick’s condo, Maddox asks, “Feel like blowing off some steam?”

I had thought he meant a workout in the gym, and I was game for that. So I say, “Sure.”

But rather than heading toward the gym, Maddox pivots in the opposite direction and leads me to the southwest side of the condo. It’s an area I don’t go to a lot as it holds a guest suite identical to mine and another guest bedroom.

Maddox opens a door I had thought was a utility closet, and I gasp when I realize it’s a man-cave.

Dark paneled walls and gleaming hardwood floors, but the decor is distinctly different than the cool blues, light creams, and silvery grays throughout the rest of the condo. Persian rugs in crimson, navy, and beige are scattered under various pieces of furniture. There’s a pool table, a bar to seat eight, a poker table, and even a dartboard. One wall boasts a flat-screen TV so large I can’t even begin to fathom how big it is, and it’s sectioned off with a massive U-shaped couch in cocoa brown, distressed leather with ornate carved clawed feet.

It was the antithesis of the rest of the condo, and not just because it’s designed to serve men and their desires for liquor, football, and cigars. It’s just overly staid in my opinion.

“Holy shit,” I murmur as I follow Maddox in. “I had no clue this was even here.”

He plops down in the middle of the couch, then reaches for a remote control. “I brought over my PS4. I thought you and I could practice our battle skills in a more chilled sort of way.”

I snort as I take in the handheld gaming controls, the only reason that I recognize them is that Myles is a big gamer. He waves one at me provocatively and then nods to the cushion beside him.

“Come on, Finley,” he urges with a gleam in his eye. “Take a load off for a while and come spend just half an hour with me blowing shit up.”

Playing video games just isn’t my thing, but it’s better than sitting around and letting my mind become overwhelmed with planning, contingencies, and what-ifs. It would actually do me good just to take a brain break.

“Okay,” I reply almost giddily, moving to the couch and hopping the back of it to land on the cushion beside Maddox. He hands me a controller and says, “We’ll play Final Fantasy VII. You’ll love it.”

I wait as he boots up the game, studying the controller. I assume he’ll give me a lesson on what the buttons do.

“Does Carrick even come in here?” I ask as I kick my tennis shoes off and cross my legs.

“He used to PF,” Maddox says as the game starts to load.

“PF?”

“Pre-Finley.” He grins at me, then takes the controller I’m holding out of my hand. “But only to have a drink, conduct business, or maybe play some poker with friends.”

“But Carrick doesn’t have friends,” I point out. “And why hasn’t he come in here since I came into his life?”

“You are correct… Carrick doesn’t have friends. Maybe I should have said business acquaintances. And I imagine he doesn’t use this room very much these days as he hasn’t had much downtime since you came into his life wreaking havoc.”

I know he’s teasing, so I bump my shoulder against his good naturedly. “Well, maybe I can convince him to play a few games of pool. I’m really good, and I’m not above hustling him.”

“It’s a good thing I’m not a sucker then,” Carrick’s voice sounds from behind us. Maddox and I both twist to look at the door to find Carrick standing there casually, one arm raised and his hand resting against the jamb slightly above his head. The smile on his face is amused.

“You’re back,” I exclaim, pushing up from the couch. I was looking forward to unwinding a little with Maddox, but if it’s a choice between time with him or Carrick, I’m going to choose Carrick every time.

It seems just so natural, despite the fact I know Maddox is watching, to walk right up to Carrick and kiss him.

Or perhaps it’s him who is kissing me.

Regardless, my lips are happy for that brief connection, and I take stock of the fact I’m infinitely happier at this moment than I was a mere thirty seconds ago hanging out with Maddox, and I was pretty damn happy then.

There’s no getting around it.

Carrick just does it for me in all ways.

Book Blurb:

Evil is coming. A dark malevolence the likes of which this world has never seen, and it comes straight from the depths of Hell. Darkness meant to destroy. A prophecy I am fated to fulfill but will most likely not survive. Through it all, Carrick Byrne has stood strong by my side. Something has deeply changed between me and the man I once despised, and all it took was a kiss of provocation for both of us to feel it. I know deep in my soul we’re being guided by destiny, but I don’t know if I can trust it. Carrick is holding something back, and I fear the consequences could be deadly once his truth is revealed. We’re not ready, but calamity waits for no woman. I have discovered a power within myself I must learn to master. A new connection in the Underworld has been revealed to me, one that I hope is friend but is just as likely foe. We are in a race against time as we try to figure out how to stop the end of the world from occurring. The battle is coming, and I can only hope we’re prepared for what happens next. The Evolution of Fae and Gods is book three of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The unforgettable conclusion to the epic fantasy Elements of Five series from NYT Bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan.

The end of the centuries-long war is almost here, and the fate of the realm rests on one girl’s shoulders. The Gray has gathered his forces—and has Lyric in his clutches. The enemy’s plan to control the kingdoms has been revealed, but traitors from both sides might alter the course of fate.
Lyric must return to Easton and the others before all is lost.  Battle lines must be forged, and surprising alliances cast.  The prophecy has never altered, and life comes at an ultimate price. Not all who fight will survive, but in the end, it will come down to the choice of a Priestess and her soul.

Book Blurb:

Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate. In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day. The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind. Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same. As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted. The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together. A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.
