Viki’s review: Witch’s cauldron by Ella Summers

Something wicked is brewing in New York.

“A month ago, I watched in horror as six of my fellow initiates died after sipping the Nectar of the gods, a heavenly drink that either grants you magical powers or kills you. I can’t believe I’m coming back for seconds.”

Leda Pierce has survived the gods’ first test and gained entry into the Legion of Angels, but the fight is far from over. Someone is poisoning the supernaturals of New York. Suspecting witches, the Legion sends in Leda to investigate. To save the city, she will need magic she doesn’t have—and gaining that magic might just kill her. Now her survival depends on accepting help from the darkly seductive angel Nero, but that help comes with a price she cannot afford to pay.

Witch’s Cauldron is the second book in the Legion of Angels series. Continue reading “Viki’s review: Witch’s cauldron by Ella Summers”

Viki's review, Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting in wednesday

Title: The last namsara
Author: Kristen Ciccarelli
Series: Iskari #1
Genres: Fantasy, YA,
Add to Goodreads

In the beginning, there was the Namsara: the child of sky and spirit, who carried love and laughter wherever he went. But where there is light, there must be dark—and so there was also the Iskari. The child of blood and moonlight. The destroyer. The death bringer.

These are the legends that Asha, daughter of the king of Firgaard, has grown up hearing in hushed whispers, drawn to the forbidden figures of the past. But it isn’t until she becomes the fiercest, most feared dragon slayer in the land that she takes on the role of the next Iskari—a lonely destiny that leaves her feeling more like a weapon than a girl.

Asha conquers each dragon and brings its head to the king, but no kill can free her from the shackles that await at home: her betrothal to the cruel commandant, a man who holds the truth about her nature in his palm. When she’s offered the chance to gain her freedom in exchange for the life of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard, she finds that there may be more truth to the ancient stories than she ever could have expected. With the help of a secret friend—a slave boy from her betrothed’s household—Asha must shed the layers of her Iskari bondage and open her heart to love, light, and a truth that has been kept from her.

Top Ten Tuesday: Book recommendations based on my favorite TV shows

This post was originally created by The broke and the bookish.

So after the brief break in the weekly posts its back. This week concept is Ten book recommendations for ______________. So after careful contemplation I decided to do the post as recommending books based on some of my favorite TV shows. There are a couple of shows that are already based on a book so in those cases I tried to pick a different book and not the original one they adapted. Also most of these recommendations are only loosely connectedto the shows, having one or two common element but I think if you liked the TV show you will enjoy the book, too. I have way too many shows that I like so I choose the first 10 that I could vome up with a book counterpat. So lets get started.

Viki’s review: Vampire’s kiss by Ella Summers

 Once you sip the Nectar of the gods, there’s no going back.

Leda Pierce is working as a paranormal bounty hunter on the Frontier, the dividing line between human civilization and the plains of monsters. Life is simple and the pay modest, but at least she has her family. That is, until a vampire hunt goes wrong and her brother goes missing, captured by the dark angels of hell.

With no magical powers of her own and no way to find him, Leda’s only option is to go to New York and join the Legion of Angels, an elite unit of supernatural soldiers with powers gifted to them by the gods themselves. If she can survive long enough to make it up the ranks, she will gain the magic she needs to find her brother.

But Leda soon finds herself on the wrong side of a conspiracy that will shake up the supernatural world—and at the mercy of a fiercely powerful and tempting angel.

Viki’s review: Broken beautiful beginning by Sophie Summers

Jace’s last words play in my head over and over as I lay in this dark trunk. I can hear his faint mumbling through the insulation of the backseat. I cry louder, asking for him to pull over, to let me out.
Praying for him to take me back to my baby girl.
Hitting my fists against the top of the trunk I scream and yell, but nothing… He continues to drive further and further away from my family.
I have just found my way back to Caleb. We are supposed to be a family.
I need him to find me, save me from the Beast Jace has become…
This was supposed to be our new beginning… we were meant to start fresh, a clean break.

They all said that Jace was a monster… a dangerous man that I should steer clear of but they had it all wrong.
It’s only when Raven comes out to play does he become the person so many fear.
I was so wrong to think I understood him.
No one understands him…
I thought I knew who he was but I had no idea the secrets he was keeping from me and the Club.
I should have listened to their warnings, should have taken their advice but I had been drawn to a broken soul and I thought I could mend it….fix him somehow.
After all is said and done, only one question remains…who will fix me when I break?
