I write fantasy, inviting you to escape into a world where the Elements enchant. This is where you can read my thoughts on books that I have read.

Beltane Blessings from Wraidd Elfennol - featuring A Change of Rules (The Missing Shield #1) by @L.L. Thomsen

#BookoftheMonth - Spurn (Walker Saga #2) by Jaymin Eve

Spurn (Walker Saga #2) - Jaymin Eve

#ScienceFiction#Romance, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)


SPURN is the second book in the Walker Saga, and we continue with Abby and Lucy as they try to conquer another world. Spurn is not at all what they expected, especially as Abby has 'fun' swimming. Throw in a Stalker Walker (yes, I stole that from Abby), mutant sea monsters, Lucas and Brace, and Abby has her hands full. 

We meet Talina in this story, and she is a gentle, introverted character. That is, unless you try to hurt her loved ones, and then she will go full on typhoon on your ass! She hasn't had it easy, but is a wonderful character that I had fun getting to know.

I am LOVING this series! Seriously!!! It is full of action, quick paced, quick-witted, and full of emotions (both good and bad). I read each book, thoroughly loving each story, and yet wanting to move onto the next one, just so I can continue with the story. 

Fair warning - one major heartbreak in this book that I did NOT see coming, even with the warnings. There were others too, but this one knocked me out of my boots. Now I definitely need to read Crais... and hope that Ms. Eve isn't going to keep me in suspenders until the last book!

Absolutely definitely positively recommended!


#BookoftheMonth - First World (Walker Saga #1) by Jaymin Eve

First World (Walker Saga #1) - Jaymin Eve

#ScienceFiction#Romance, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)


From a post-apocalyptic world on earth to a new world that is billions of years old - First World literally takes you on an adventure as Abby tries to figure just who she is, why she's been dreaming of Mr Hotness himself, why her parents abandoned her, and what she has to do next.

This is a gritty story that is lightened by moments of hilarity and sarcasm between Abby and Luce. These two are fantastic as they spark off against each other. There is enough world building to satisfy me, whilst still leaving me wanting more in the books yet to be read. I love the characters, and have no shame in admitting I want to see more of Quarn. I am hoping the Brace-Abby-Luca story gets sorted out as triangles are not my favourite, but I will wait and see.

For a funny story that will take you off-planet, I have no hesitation in recommending this!

RELEASE BLAST & REVIEW - The Snow Owl (The Alder Tales #4) by R.S. McCoy

Reblogged from MerissaArchaeolibrarian:
The Snow Owl - RS McCoy
The Snow Owl concludes The Alder Tales and as such, you would expect to have the loose ends tied up. R.S. McCoy does this in such a way that your heart is pounding as you read through the book. You WANT that happy ending, and yet you are really unsure if you will get it.
Each of the pairs we have met previously get their time. We catch up with all of them and so we understand on an even deeper level just how their lives will change going forward. There is a whole new twist to the story too, that I for one did not see coming.
This author manages to turn something around on it's head, until you are unsure if you are rooting for the character, or loathe them. Stunning wordsmithery!
There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, as were the transitions from one scene to the next. I absolutely recommend this book, but I would also recommend you start from the beginning. This is a series, and not a set of standalones.
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

#BookoftheMonth - The Trouble with Spells (Of Witches and Warlocks #1) by Lacey Weatherford

The Trouble With Spells - Lacey Weatherford

The Trouble with Spells is the first book in the Of Witches and Warlocksseries, and we start with a prologue of two years ago, when Vance first set eyes on Portia. He finds out she is the daughter he has been warned to stay away from, and so he does.

Skip forward two years, and Portia is near her 16th birthday. On her birthday, she gets more than she bargained for, and finds out she is from a long line of witches and warlocks. Not only that, but she already has an amazing amount of control over her powers. Throw in a soul mate, a big bad, and you're on the way.

Now, this story has an amazing amount of Insta-Love, which I usually don't like too much. I prefer the slow burners. However, it seems to work in this story. Perhaps because Portia deals amazingly well with what is thrown at her. I was worried she would be a whiny character, but she isn't. Her and Vance do make an exceedingly cute couple.

I thought this story was well written, and a delight to read. If you like insta-love, and young-adult paranormal, then I would definitely recommend this one. Plus you can get book 2 free if you sign up for her newsletter!

REVIEW BY AMY - Of Land and Sky (Wraidd Elfennol #3) by Morgan Sheppard

Reblogged from MerissaArchaeolibrarian:
Of Land and Sky (Wraidd Elfennol #3) - Morgan Sheppard

The balance of the Elements is once more in doubt, and new Chosen are called. They need to find the will to succeed, or the unseen enemy from years gone by may have the advantage.

The Wheel of the Year has had many cycles - and the folk of Wraidd Elfennol have lived in peace since the age of Marella, Kai, Daren, and Lani. All the Elements have been in perfect harmony with each other.

All that is about to change, with new Chosen called to represent their Element and to find nine sacred branches.

Bran and Rhosyn need to work together to restore the balance between Earth and Air… and maybe find out just who they are meant to be.

Full of myth and magic, with a strong Welsh theme, Of Land and Sky continues the Fantasy series set in the imaginary world of Wraidd Elfennol.
