BLURB:

 

Victoria Marshall is living a lie. She works for a member of the Knights of the Dragon, a secret society that traps and uses dragons for their own gain. As a child, she made an unlikely friend—a drakon. He went missing, and she’s spent the past twenty years searching for him. The only thing distracting her from her mission is Luther Henderson, her boss’s new head of security.

Luther is also living a lie. One, if discovered, could lead to a fate worse than death. He’s attracted to Victoria, but can’t fully trust her, doesn’t know if she’s truly innocent or a true member of the Knights. It’s not only his life at stake, but those of the people he loves.

As they’re thrust deeper into the dangerous dealings of the Knights, they each have to share their secrets in order to survive.

REVIEW:

 

I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but after reading this book I am really intrigued to delve into this series and all it has to offer. A story full of suspense, action and mystery. Victoria and Luther are our protagonists and they definitely lent well to the Paranormal Romance genre. Drakon Unchained can absolutely be read as a stand-alone, but I am more than keen to continue on this universe and see what else this author has to offer.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

 

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

 

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same.

 

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good look will vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.

BLOG TOUR: THE CHEERLEADERS

CHEERLEADERS COVER

 

PUBLISHER: Delacorte Press

 

DATE PUBLISHED: 31st July 2018

 

PAGES: 384

BLURB:

 

There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.

First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.

That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.

There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.

 

alb-divider

REVIEW:

 

A dark and macabre mystery novel featuring the concept that all the cheerleaders in a small town have died and years later it still may not be over. Monica is a strong female protagonist who really sold the novel for me and added to the mystery as I was very interested in her development and the outcome for her by the end of the novel.

Monica’s sister was one of the cheerleaders who had died and when she discovers her sisters phone it begins to unwind this twisting mystery about what exactly happened to all of the cheerleaders. It is a believeable portrayal of high school and social media that had me relating it to elements of novels such as 13 Reasons Why.

Ultimately, I either hate or love this genre of YA fiction. Kara Thomas’ novel was one I definitely loved and was invested in through to the end. I definitely recommend this novel to fans of mystery or anyone looking to broaden their horizons. This was a mystery that left me on the edge of my seat.

BLURB:

 

In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.

Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace – someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir’s eye, it’s Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.

Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.

 

alb-divider

REVIEW:

 

This is such an empowering novel… delivering the message to women that it is ok to stand up and speak out. Grace and Fury is a feminist fantasy novel full of intrigue, family and girl power. The concept of fantasy novels with disempowered young women is nothing new… but, for some reason Grace and Fury works so well and really drives home the message of empowerment.

There are a lot of extremely tough topics within this novel and people should be aware of before they start the novel. Ultimately, this is a sister novel with Nomi and Serina in the forefront. These women have some fantastic character development and seeing these two women progress through the novel was one hell of a journey.

The alternating perspectives also allow for alternating locations with part of the novel taking place in a lavish castle and the other taking place on a volcanic prison island full of woman who must fight to the death. This is the perfect combination of dystopian novels within one brilliant book.

And damn, the plot twist. I absolutely recommend this novel. It is an amazing fantasy / dystopian novel with brilliant character development. This is a YA The Handmaid’s Tale.

The first thing I would absolutely pack would be enough books to get me through the road trip. Depending on where I was going would decide what type of books I would pack for the trip. Toiletries and clean clothes are an essential as well as snacks for the trip. If I am road tripping alone and the one driving I will have my phone with Auidble for the road trip Audiobooks.

 

There would be other things I would think of, but those are the essentials for my summer road trip.

Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

BLURB:

 

Be prepared to meet three unforgettable women:

Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.

Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.

Minny, Aibileen’s best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody’s business, but she can’t mind her tongue, so she’s lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.

Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.

 

CONNECTION:

 

Both The Hate U Give and Tyler Johnson Was Here discuss race and the impact of cultural differences on a society.

When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?

Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

girls made of snow and glass

 

BLURB:

 

At sixteen, Mina’s mother is dead, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she’d always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king’s heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmother.

Fifteen-year-old Lynet looks just like her late mother, and one day she discovers why: a magician created her out of snow in the dead queen’s image, at her father’s order. But despite being the dead queen made flesh, Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother, Mina. She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet queen of the southern territories, displacing Mina. Now Mina is starting to look at Lynet with something like hatred, and Lynet must decide what to do—and who to be—to win back the only mother she’s ever known…or else defeat her once and for all.

 

 

CONNECTION:

 

Both The Wrath and the Dawn and Girls Made of Snow and Glass are retellings with strong female characters.

The party was in full swing and everyone was having so much fun. The moon was full and the warlocks at the party were keeping the air abuzz with just enough magic that everyone was just slightly tipsy.

Magnus shared a grin with a fellow warlock as one particularly tipsy fairy went spinning past, her clothes slightly askew with a mad grin on her face. Another girl walked a short distance behind her keeping the girl in her line of sight, designated driver?

Suddenly, there was a large crash coming from the refreshments table. Magnus spun around in time to see Jace Wayland throwing a vampire across the room. Jace sprung again with his seraph in hand.

“Uh, uh…” with a wave of his hand Magnus stopped Jace in midair and sent him stumbling backwards.

“What the heck Magnus” Jace was now focused solely on Magnus and advancing fast. “Who the hell do you think you are?”

“The High Warlock of Brooklyn, and you would be wise to remember whose house you are in Shadowhunter.” Magnus flicked his hair out of his face and sent a glare in Jace’s direction.

Right then the vampire jumped up. Only it wasn’t a vampire… though the pale tone of the girls skin meant she was sure masquerading as one.

“You interrupted my mark you imbecile.” She advanced on Jace with a knife she had drawn from her boot.

Magnus rolled his eyes and held out a hand, “woman, would you put down the knife?”

“The name is Mia.” The girl growled. Magnus saw a shadow in the corner of his eye. A cat was skulking around Mia’s legs. Now Magnus had seen everything.

“Alright now. We can settle this without getting blood all over my rug, it is a bitch to clean.”

Just then the tipsy fairy girl from earlier stumbled into Mia. She spilled her drink over Mia and knocked both of them to the ground.

“Geez Fayre… I take my eyes off you for one second”. The other girl appeared and helped Feyre off the ground.

“It isn’t my fault” Fayre slurred “this damn warlock magic is going to my head. Can we just get out of here Jude?”

“Yeah, that’s probably a good idea. I just had to see Oak but he is fine. I need to get back and make sure Cardan hasn’t set anything on fire.”

Jace snorted a laugh and all the attention shifted back to him.

“What” Jude snarled. “I know all about you, don’t think you could be left alone for one minute without something going awry Mr. Perfect Shadowhunter”.

“Hold up”. Magnus groaned. “I will not have violence at any of my super amazing parties. You’ll all need to take it outside.”

“I was just leaving,” Mia had gotten herself off of the floor. “But watch out Shadowhunter, you’ve made it onto my list.” As quick as that she was gone.

“What the…” Jude said. “Where did she go?”

“I don’t know.” Jace said pocketing his seraph. “But I can’t say I’m sad to see her go.”

The two girl in the background slipped away quietly.

“Well,” Jace said “You never throw a boring party Magnus.”

“Where’s the fun in that?” Magnus just smiled as he looked out at the party still raging around him.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West

Kasie West is yet another fabulous contemporary author who writes amazing summery reads. This is one of my favourite books from Kasie with the cutest romance and addicting plot. I can just see myself in the summer sitting under a tree devouring this book.

Summer is all about the contemporaries for me. I really enjoy pulling out a good contemporary or romance novel and sitting outside or by the beach. What is your favourite summer read?

 

Keep Calm and Read On,
