Review: The Blood Scion by Nazarea Andrews

Title: The Blood Scion
Series: The Scion Legacy #1
By: Nazarea Andrews
My Copy: Ebook from Author
The BookWhisperer's Rating:

I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.
I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.
The Houses. And their Scions.
Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.
And somehow, I am one of them.

I don’t even know how Nazarea Andrews does it.  How she dreams up these vivid worlds that contain unthought-of danger, a unique level of paranormal, intense love, and absolute awesomeness, I will never know.  I just wanna jump inside her head and take a peek one day but then I am sure my tiny mind would explode in all of her brilliance.  It brings me joy that I have found her and labeled her one of my favorite authors.

Did I love the novella before this? Yes! Did I love The Blood Scion just as much? No! *SCREECH* WHAT? Yeah, I said it right.  I didn’t love TBS as much as I loved The Scionless House, I loved it more and for so many reasons.

First, I loved it because Nazarea Andrews wrote it.  It is like pure gold.  How she writes both Farley and O’s point of view shows what a tremendous author she is.  In the first book we really only got to know O – we learned the history of the house and the history of the last Scion.  In this book we get so much more.  Farley is introduced and man is she fantastic.  She is badass to the core.  Finding out that she is being summed by O’s sire, Farley flees to her brother Winston’s house (she still is badass though.)  From this point, Farley learns a lot about her past that she didn’t know.  This new knowledge brings her to the Raven’s house where she becomes their Scion, a hard job. It also doesn’t help that sexy pants O is her sworn protector and in general a badass as well. 

Now without giving away anything that will ruin your fun in reading this amazing book, I am going to stop right there and give some more praise to N.  I know this is going to be an amazing series filled with dark twist and turns that will keep me glued to the pages.  I also know that these two characters, Farley and O, are going to be nothing short of fantastic.  I am already rooting for this forbidden love between the two of them and for them in general.  I want nothing more than Farley to succeed because I am already attached to her.  I also want O to be happy because I like his character.  He has become more dimensional in this book than just a Blade or protector.  There is also Sulla who makes me happy for an unknown reason.  And then to top it off, there is this well thought out, original story that just flows from the pages.  The only thing else that would make this better is if I had the next book in this series.

Twelve Houses. Twelve vampire lines. We ruled from the shadows, and manipulated the world, and when humans came too close to destruction, we intervened. Every House has a Scion. A fragile, easily broken human that stood shoulder to shoulder with the house Princes and Princesses. Except for ours. The Ravens, House Cantelie. We've been without a Scion for almost fifteen years. But that will change...and her life will be mine to protect.

Review: Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan

Title: Perfectly Imperfect
By: Harper Sloan
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating:

Mirror, mirror ... who's the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn't grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all 'mean girls.'

And those mean girls were right - it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world - and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.

The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.

Well, that's definitely not Willow Tate.

No. That will never be me.

Because I'm completely imperfect.

And ... I hate myself.

I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

Poor Willow has had a tough beginning and it doesn’t get better when she becomes an adult.  This book is filled with treacherous events that continuously bring Willow down into a self-loathing level.  Just when she feels like it is time to shine, she gets knocked back down.  Lucky for her, Kane is right beside her to pick her up and dust her off.  From here is a whirlwind of romance.  Kane knows immediately that Willow is perfect in every way and fights to build her self-confidence so that she can shine bright.  It isn’t easy though.  Life isn’t easy.

Kane finds that building Willow back up isn’t the only fight they take on.  Harper Sloan threw a dark secret into the midst and it took me a while to figure out what clues was set before me.  This secret isn’t a secret Kane’s secret that he can tell.   While it has everything to do with him, it has nothing to do with him and it start creating a rip in their relationship.  I have to give a hand to Harper for when this secret is exposed, Willow handles it with grace.  Most authors could have taken another road and have their characters acted out in an unbecoming way.  However, Willow didn’t. 

I think it is safe to say that I liked the main characters Willow and Kane.  I liked them together as a couple even more.  I also liked Kane’s bodyguard Cam and his love for romance novels.  It just made me laugh.  Willow’s two friends and Kane’s friend Mia rounded each character out for the best.  

Now there are some characters that I didn’t like, and we aren’t supposed to like.  But every time their names appeared on the page I just wanted to get far away from that page as possible.  I knew that they were going to do harm and it just hurt my heart for Willow and what brutal punch she was going to take next. 

The synopsis of this book intrigued me.  A beautiful man falls for an imperfect woman who doesn’t see how beautiful she truly is.  Honestly, isn’t this what we all want?  It doesn’t matter how beautiful you are, you always see that one flaw that makes you feel imperfect and to find someone who sees that imperfection and finds it beautiful, well that is just winning at life.  Before the book begins there is a small note from the author.  I encourage you all to read it first.  For those who struggle with their hatred of their flaws, know that you are not alone.  But also know how beautiful you are.

  Excerpt: “You go by Chris?” “It’s an acceptable nickname for Christian.” The owner of the name snatches his glass of champagne back, chugging the rest of the drink. Naturally, this promptly sets off another round of coughing. Parker is now the one to smack Christian’s back, and I am grateful because I most certainly do not need to be touching him again, even if in a life-saving gesture. “Maybe so,” I murmur as Christian, rapidly turning redder from what surely must be embarrassment more than alcohol down the wrong pipe, shoves his friend’s hand away. “But it doesn’t fit.” “If I might be so bold to ask, Your Highness, how so?” Parker inquires at the same time Christian wheezes, “What does that mean?” I side skirt the men to claim a chocolate covered strawberry from the dessert table. “Chris is a boring name.” “I believe you’ve just issued an unforgiveable insult to all the Chrises in the world,” Christian says flatly while Parker struggles to hold in his mirth. “Of course I haven’t. I simply said Chris is a boring name. Look at Elsa; it is a hopelessly old-fashioned name you find in old women who bake streusel. My parents aged me the moment I came out of the womb.” I point the zebra-striped berry at my sparring partner. “Now that is unforgiveable. You were given a nice name and have elected to make it boring when it doesn’t suit you one bit.” Too much silence expands between us; I am tricked into looking up at him once more. One of his dark eyebrows arches upward. “Are you saying you don’t find me boring?” Did I? Oh, bollocks. I did, didn’t I? I clear my throat and smile winsomely. “Just because I don’t wish to marry you doesn’t mean I find you boring as a bag of rocks.” Both of his eyebrows shoot up, as if I informed him grass is blue and sky is green. As if he doesn’t already know he’s interesting. Please. Must I remind him of all the glossies dedicated to his comings and goings? “When we were children, His Highness was teased quite a bit about his name,” Parker tells me. I toss the strawberry stem back onto the table; it’s whisked up by a passing waiter in less than a second. “What! Why?” “I’m named after a religion,” Christian grinds out. “There was Prince Jew. Prince Muslim. Prince Buddhist. Prince Hindu. Prince Zoroastrian. There were lots of choices, you see.” Another moment I want nothing more than to just laugh and laugh. “How delightful. Now, those nicknames aren’t boring. Sacrilegious, yes, but definitely not boring.” “You have a seed in your front teeth,” is Christian’s response. “You are a veritable Prince Charming, publically pointing out women’s flaws. How chivalrous of you.” It is annoying how much I like that he refuses to appear properly chastised.

About ROYAL MARRIAGE MARKET: Every decade, the world’s monarchs and their heirs secretly convene to discuss global politics and social issues—and arrange marriages between kingdoms. Elsa may be the Hereditary Princess of Vattenguldia, but she finds the entire situation archaic and unsavory. While she wants what's best for her country, she isn't about to jump into an unwanted relationship—let alone a marriage—with a virtual stranger. Of course, her feelings matter little to her parents, whose wheeling and dealings over trade pacts and alliances achieved at her expense begin the moment they set foot in California for the Summit. So when a blindingly handsome royal runs into her, she doesn't hesitate to tell him there's no way she's marrying him. Christian is all too happy to agree: no marriage. As the Hereditary Grand Duke of Aiboland, his main goal is to get through the summit without a bride being foisted on him. Which is why he suggests they help each other field potential intendeds. As Christian slowly gets to know Elsa, though, he realizes they have a lot more in common than just their feelings about the Royal Marriage Market. Only he can't fall for her, because royal or not, they're not meant for each other. Elsa and Christian will have to evaluate matters of the heart verses those of state and crown, and decide whether or not tradition trumps love.

Review: All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

Title: All Our Yesterdays
By: Cristin Terrill
My Copy: Ebook for Honest Review
BookWhisperer Rating:

What would you change?

Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside. 

Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it... at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

All Our Yesterday's is a story of time travel. I have had trouble connecting with such story lines in the past, so this has been a mile marker for me. Em, Finn, and James are a powerful trio, and their story is one of love and devotion. It is this connection that keeps them from truly seeing the when one of them become led astray. What starts as a desperation for creating safety and protection soon transforms into corruption and abuse of power. This is a tragic story, and the glimpse of such a future is chilling. AOY is a detailed and carefully constructed adventure. This is a standalone that will wrap up the story nice and tight. I like what I have seen here, and will keep this author on my radar for new stories.

Review: Rage by Elizabeth Reyes

Title: Rage
By: Elizabeth Reyes
Series: Fated #5
My Copy: Ebook from Author
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Having made it to the major leagues, AJ "Rage" Romero is determined to shake the stigma his temper has earned him over the years. He's finally managed a shaky hold of that elusive self-control.

Until he meets them . . .

Without warning, his coach and mentor's brilliantly gifted granddaughter Clair and her equally amazing mother Addison Lara blow into AJ's life. The harder he falls for Addison, the closer and more attached he becomes to Clair.

Having fallen so fast and hard, he agrees to respect the understandably protective single mother's wish to forever keep the identity of Clair's absent father unknown to everyone—including AJ.

But when the ugly truth about Clair's dad begins to surface, the fire in AJ's fiercely possessive heart is lit. As more of the troubling reality comes to light, his zero tolerance for secrets and dishonesty put his temper—and his love for Addison—to the ultimate test.

Self-control has never felt so impossible.

I believe it is safe to say that Elizabeth Reyes knocked this one out of the park. 

From the moment AJ met little (immensely adorable) Clair, he won my heart.  I just knew that their friendship was going to be one of a kind.  It was so adorable how they instantly became each other’s best buddy.  Clair would share her baseball stats with AJ and tips before each game and AJ was Clair’s first buddy outside of her family – it was so cute. 

Then walks in Addison, Clair’s mother AND THE SPARKS!  AJ and Addison were cute together, AJ and Clair were cute together, but AJ, Addison, and Clair together…way too cute for my heart to handle. 

I found that Rage was more suspenseful than the other Fated books.  Addison refuses to give up the identity of Clair’s father is and throughout the entire book this creates a growing crack in their relationship when AJ realizes that Addison is lying to him.    There is also the side story of Nathan and Kelli’s relationship and how Isaiah comes into play with it. This is a promising upcoming story, I am sure! 

Oh, and that epilogue.  So beautiful!  It wrapped everything up so prettily that I had that moment of closing the book with a soft smile on my face.
