Wake Unto Me ARC

Yay!  I received an ARC of Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach!  OMG....I saw about a month ago that she had posted on Twitter that she was giving away ARC copies of her book.  You had to click on the link, which I did.  It was just like two days late when I saw it.  So I emailed her and told her that I would love a copy but I missed her tweet by two days.  She emailed me back and said that she would see what she could do.  She said she would email her publisher and see if they could send me a copy.

Today I get a text from my mom saying that the UPS man just dropped off a book for me.  I was like "happy dance" when she told me what it was.  I was shocked and so excited!  I could not stop talking about it when I got home and was holding it in my hands.  Yeah I'm way excited about this one!

The Noble Ones

Today I received an ARC of The Noble Ones by Daniel Patrick Tinsley.  He also wrote me a note and signed the inside. Yay!  Can't wait to read it!  

The release date is May 2011.  The publisher is Pill Hill Press.  Make sure to check it out.  It sounds like it's going to be really good!  I'll post the review as soon as I read it.

Here is the summary from Goodreads:

On the surface, Aidan's life seems no different from any other young man living during the waning years of the 18th century; he has a charming girlfriend, a thriving clock shop, and a sizable stretch of land. While repairing his late father's pocket watch, he deciphers a hidden message that unlocks the truth of his lineage and plunges him into a world filled with the fantastical. Aidan's journey takes him through enchanted forests, across sprawling country sides, and into the underbelly of corrupt cities where he battles political adversaries who will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo.

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1) Review

Book:  The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1)
Author:  Aimee Carter
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen
Rating:  5 Stars
Level:  Young Adult
Source:  ARC e-book

Summary from Goodreads:
Every girl who has taken the test has died.

Now it's Kate's turn.

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

If she fails...

My Review:
I received this as an ARC e-book from Harlequin Teen through NetGalley. This did not affect my review in any way.

I have been wanting to read this book for awhile now. When I read the summary I thought this is something different, something that I haven't read before. I thought it was going to be somewhat different than what it is. I was surprised in a good way though.

It starts off with Kate and her dying mother moving to Michigan from New York. Kate starts school and meets a couple people. One night she is heading to a party with her friend Ava. There is an accident and Ava almost dies. There Kate meets Henry who heals Ava on the condition that Kate spend six months in the manor with him. She thinks he is crazy but agrees to it. A couple days later when he comes to take her she thinks he is crazy and turns down the deal. The next day she finds out that Ava is dead because she didn't go with Henry. Her mother is getting worse so she decides that maybe Henry could heal her mother. She moves into the Eden Manor with Henry for six months. As part of the deal Kate has to take seven tests and pass them and then she will become Henry's wife and partner in ruling the underworld. While she sleeps she gets to dream of spending time with her mother. This is where the story really starts.

I don't want to give away any more away than I already have. I have to say that I LOVED this book. The cover is gorgeous. I fell in love with the story and the characters. I liked how as I was reading it I never knew what the tests or the results were until the end of the book. Despite thinking Henry and the entire thing was crazy at first Kate finally comes around and decides that this is for real. It was a real thought out story, I loved all the characters. They each have their own unique personality and place. The way that the story played out for Kate and Henry's relationship was so sweet. All the other things that happened through out I loved reading too. The almost murder that happened, I was so shocked when I found out who the murder of the past girls was. When they meet the council in the end, I was again shocked to find out who the council members really were. When the last one came through the door my mouth literally fell open. The ending was so good but kinda sad that Kate is gone for the summer, but I like the friend that she is spending it with. Then there is fall and winter to come again.

I cannot wait to read the next one in this series. I'm hoping for some more romance in the next one. This is an author to watch out for. This was an amazing story and I have to say once again that I LOVED it!

Quicksilver Review

Book:  Quicksilver
Author:  Joy Spraycar
Publisher:  AuthorHouse
Rating:  3.5 Stars
Level:  Adult
Source:  Review Copy

Summary From Goodreads:  
A recurring nightmare holds Serry Miller in its grip and has for most of her life. In spite of her fear of the man who becomes a monster, she's in love with him. Not only does she have nightmares while she sleeps, she's living in one with an abusive, alcoholic husband. When Serry's drunken husband hit's Quinton Worthington's car, she sees the face of the man from her nightmares on a stretcher entering the hospital. When he looks at her and calls her by her name, she is plummeted into a life that she has only dreamed about. Quinton Worthington has suffered for over a hundred years. That's when his evil father ripped Serenity, the love of Quinton's life, from him. At the same time, he changed Quinton into a monster. When Quinton sees Serry's face in the hospital, he believes that Serenity has come back, and he will do anything to be with her. There's only one thing that stands in their way of having the life they want: Quinton's father.

My Review:
I received this book from the author and/or publisher through Bostick Communications. It was sent to me as a review copy. This in now way affected my review.

This story starts out with Quinton back in the 1800's. That is where his story begins. It gives the reader a little bit of background information of him becoming a werewolf and what his father did to him. We find out that his father Wesley took Quinton's fiance Serenity from him. Later on Serenity returns pregnant and dies after giving birth. Quinton leaves the baby on his doctor friend's doorstep and moves on for the next 100 plus years of his life. Present day we find Serry married to her husband Collin who she is in an abusive relationship with. One night Collin's car hits Quinton's and sends them both to the hospital. There Quinton sees Serry and thinks that she is Serenity. At the same time Serry is wondering how she is seeing the man from the dreams she has been having. Collin dies from his injuries and Serry is left to wonder if she should feel guilty that Collin is gone. Quinton and Serry come across each other a short time later and start dating.

The story progresses with them dating and later marrying. They want to have children but Quinton does not want them to have the werewolf curse. So they set out to find a cure for Quinton. One that he thinks requires him to kill his father to end the curse. It was a rollar coaster ride of emotions, action, adventure and romance. Every time I thought something was going good for them something else would come their way and happen. I enjoyed reading it, liked the characters although I didn't feel real connected to any of them. The story was well told and progressed at smooth pace. The love that Quinton and Serry have for one another was what romance should be. We learned a little about each of their backgrounds but not really anything about the side characters. The side characters played out their roles in the story ok though.

Overall I would give this a 3.5 star rating. It was a good read, I just felt some things were repetitive throughout. It has a happy ending but I'm still left wondering what Quinton and Serry's dreams mean with the werewolves and how did Serry's dad have the cure. I would like to read more from this author in the future though.

Warriors of Light Medallion by John Whelan - Curtin

I received a request today from the author to feature his book Warriors of Light Medallion on my blog.  I also received an e-book copy for my Kindle.   It sounds like it is going to be a good read.  I was happy to be able to feature his book on my blog.  If any of you read it before I do let me know what you think.

 Title:  Warriors of Light Medallion 
Author:  John Whelan-Curtin
Publisher:  Wolf Spear Publishing

Here is the summary from Goodreads:
"When he led an attack, there was no defense. If he set a goal, it was no less a goal than a faith to follow. When he confronted you in anger, you did not fight, or flee. You begged for the end to be merciful. You prayed for your soul. And then you died.
He was Aquador."

When Aquador's people, the beast-race Lutrom, are entirely wiped out by the Arbezian Empire he finds himself on a path to revenge. To follow this path Aquador must carve a path of violence through the world, gathering more like himself to his cause. Inevitably Aquador finds that his nemesis is the god of evil himself.

The story is intensely paced, the heroes have dark and ominous sides and the stakes are for the very fate of the world.

You can purchase your copy now on Amazon.

A. Well I was sitting at my desk trying to think of a name, which was originally going to be Shabby Chic Reading.  Then I thought is that really me?  No.  I am always using the word Chick , I like reading Fantasy and I love books so I just put them all together and came up with Fantasy Book Chick.  I think it fits who I am.

Die For Me (Revenants #1) by Amy Plum

Book:  Die For Me (Revenants #1)
Author:  Amy Plum
Publisher:  Harper Teen
Rating:  5 Stars
Summary From Goodreads:
DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. It introduces a new version of the undead with revenants, beings who are fated to sacrifice themselves over and over again to save others’ lives. Kate finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely.

DIE FOR ME presents a new supernatural mythology presented in a city where dreams are sometimes the same as reality.

My Review:
First off I need to say that I received this book as an arc e-book from Harper Teen through NetGalley. This in no way affected my review.

This is an amazing debut by Amy Plum. I had been wanting to read this for a while and when I got the chance I was really excited. This is definitely a 5 Star rating if not more. The cover is gorgeous by the way. I fell in love with this while reading it and I read it every chance I got.

It starts off with these two sisters who are living in Brooklyn when they parents are killed. They decide to move to Paris, France to live with their grandparents after the funeral. Georgia has no problem fitting right in the party scene as soon as they get there. Kate on the other hand prefers to read and hang out at cafes. She is still dealing with her parents death. One day while reading at her favorite cafe she sees this gorgeous guy Vincent. He comes off as a jerk at first. Then later Kate and Georgia are out walking one night and see something strange happen. From then on Kate and Vincent keep running into each other. They become friends at first and then start dating. Vincent then shares with Kate what he really is. He is an immortal called a Revenant. They save humans and even die sometimes while saving a human. The catch though is that after three days they come back alive, the three days they are in a coma like stage.

I just loved this story. It was well thought out, the characters were strong and the environment was just gorgeous. The way the author described Paris it was as if I was right there with the characters seeing what they were experiencing. We got to find out some of the background of each of the characters which was nice. I loved how Kate and Vincent took their time with their relationship. The scenes were well written. The ending was beautiful, Kate's birthday and Vincent's gifts to her. This had it all suspense, action and my favorite romance. I cannot wait to read the sequel and anything else in the future from this author. I am recommending this to everyone who loves paranormal romance. It's SO GOOD!

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2)

Book:  City Of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) 
Author:  Cassandra Clare
Publisher:  Margaret K. McElderry
Rating:  4 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:

As readers of series starter City of Bones already know, teenager Clary Fray is a Shadowhunter, a demon slayer who has the gift of spotting Downworlder werewolves, vampires, and faeries. She is also an adolescent in an abnormally dysfunctional family: Her mom is in a magically induced coma and her father is probably insane and undoubtedly evil. All of which places Clary in situations that would challenge even the most talented average American girl.

 My Review:

What can I say about this one.  Well it sure did not disappoint for being the second book.  The first one was so good but I think this one was even better.  This one kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  With it's non stop suspense and action I didn't want to put it down.  While Clary's mom Jocelyn is still under a spell Clary is fighting demons and Valentine non stop.  Her relationship with Simon has become something more and yet she still has feelings for Jace.  I mean who wouldn't, I would choose Jace over Simon any day.  Simon is great though and now that he is a Vampire it just makes his character stronger.  I like Alec and Magnus together, I was laughing when Clary put the "No Fear" Rune on Alec and he almost told his parents about him and Mangus.  My favorite part though was when they were in the Faery court and Clary had to do what the Queen said to be released.  Don't want to say if someone has not read it yet.  The battle on Valentine's ship was incredible and well thought out.  You never knew what was coming next.  I never know when Valentine is telling the truth and when he is lying. Something the Inquisitor said to Jace about his scar has me thinking.  I really hope that Jace and Clary find out that they are not brother and sister.  I really enjoyed reading this, the story just gets better with each book.  I can't wait to read the third one and I have the fourth one pre ordered already.  If you haven't started this series yet, you need to!

The Association 1: President Park Incidents

Book:  The Association 1:  President Park Incidents
Author:  E.P. Shirleyjack
Publisher:  E.P. Shirleyjack
Rating:  3.5 Stars
Summary From Goodreads: 

In retrospect, I should have called the police after the Second President Park Incident. The police or the Magic Council. But it all started so innocuously, behind the dumpster at Jiggle Jon's Cold Beer, Lotto and Groceries, in the bluish light of the corner street lamp. It started with a frog and a question. And here we are, three friends chasing answers through trash strewn gullies and hostile back country highways, all because of that frog...and The Association.

A novelette. First tale of The Association.

My Review:
This is a magical, fun, light read that the author gave me free. I would give it a 3.5 star rating. It starts off with these three girls, Tay, Togo and Sarah just hanging out, trying to keep out of trouble. They are collecting water samples and looking for mutant six legged frogs. It tells the story of how the three girls became friends and growing up. They come across another part of town where they get caught up in a magical showdown between two mages. Tay the more narrator of the story tries to help out the young guy Barth who is put under a spell. He teaches her how to perform the spell that will remove the spell that was put on him. I was laughing while I was reading how Barth was telling Tay to twist and turn her body different ways to learn how to perform the magical spell. Then when she had to learn to sing the words to the chant, that had me laughing even more. While Tay thinks Barth looks like a nerd I think they would make a cute couple. She finally gets him freed in the end and he suggests she comes to his school and take magic classes. I'm wondering if there will be a sequel to this novella. There was a mention of a first magical incident that happened but it never really said what it was and how Togo saved Sarah and Tay. I would like to read it if there is, I would like to learn more about each character and see if Tay and Barth start a relationship. Overall I enjoyed reading this novella and would like to read more from this author.

Forsaken By Shadow (Mirus #1) by Kait Nolan

Book:  Forsaken By Shadow (Mirus #1) 
Author:  Kait Nolan
Publisher: Kait Nolan
Rating:  4 Stars

Summary from Goodreads:  
Cade Shepherd is on top of the world as this year's Ultimate Fighting Champion. He doesn't even remember his life as Gage Dempsey, a Shadow Walker with the ability to magically transport himself from shadow to shadow. In fact, he can't remember anything before waking up in a cheap motel room ten years ago with mysterious burns on his hands--not even the woman he almost died for.

Embry Hollister has picked up the pieces of her life, learned to control her ability to generate flame, and now works an enforcer for the Council of Races. But when her father is captured by the human military and the Council refuses mount a rescue mission, Embry has no choice but to go rogue. All she has to is find the man with the new name and new life who was completely wronged by her people, give him back the memories they stole, convince him to join her on what's probably a suicide mission, and hope that after ten years of living as a regular guy he still remembers what her father taught him.

And after that, she just has to leave him. Again.

My Review:
This novella pulled me in from the start and didn't let go.  It starts out with this guy Cade Shepard who wakes up in a motel room in Las Vegas.  He has no memory of who he is or what has happened.  He finds his way to New Orleans and makes a life for himself as an Ultimate Fighting Champion.  At one of his matches he meets this woman who seems familiar to him.  He takes her to a friend's bar and then they go back to her motel room.  There she gives him an antidote that gives him back his memory of who he really is, Gage and who she is, Embry.  He remembers that he is a Shadow Walker.  It has a few flashbacks to what happened ten years ago and then goes back to present day.  Then the action really starts when they sent out on a dangerous mission to save Embry's father.

I loved this story.  I thought the characters were strong and fit well together.  The chemistry between Gage and Embry was great.  They make a great couple.  The plot was good and flowed along really well.  I loved how the author brought so many mythical beings together and they worked well with one another to make it out of their situation.  I enjoyed reading about Shadow Walkers, that was a new thing for me.  It was well thought out.  The entire time it was a rollarcoaster ride with so much action, adventure and romance.  I thought the ending was great.  I am sad that it ended and hope that Kait writes more to Gage and Embry's story.  I want to read more from this author!

* I would recommend this to adults because of language and sexual situations. *
