The View from Here by Leon Stevens – Review by Angela Hayes

The View from HereThe View from Here by Leon Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The View From Here by Leon Stevens is a really original and interesting sci-fi adventure story. I know this author for his gift with poetry, so this was an unexpected find that immediately captured my attention.
This story is fantastically detailed and descriptive- with wonderful worldbuilding that really brought everything to life. I can see it making a great movie, too.
We meet Thomas who is setting off for a day of hiking- but he could never have predicted what awaited him on the trail, soon finding himself thrust into an adventure that spans time and place and testing him on many levels. With different dimensions, dramatic developments, friendship, intrigue, survival, and a crazy adventure- everything Thomas thought he knew will be turned upside down- making for an unputdownable read.
Looking forward to seeing what Mr. Stevens does next!
Happy reading.

Thank you, Leon Stevens!

Wild Hare’s Daughter (Wild Hares) by Laura Koerber – Review by Angela Hayes

Wild Hare's DaughterWild Hare’s Daughter by Laura Koerber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

3.5 Stars

 

Wild Hare’s Daughter by Laura Koerber is an interesting and original dystopian story with magical realism, a near future setting, politics, crime, secrets, fairies, tension, imagination, and intriguing characters- all playing out in a small town setting.
Even though this could be read as a standalone, I really wish I had read Wild Hare first before starting this book, as I feel that knowing what happened there would have enhanced my reading experience of this book even more. So, I plan to dive into Wild Hare to remedy that oversight asap.

Thank you, Laura Koerber!

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders Book 4) by Lexie Conyngham – Review by Angela Hayes

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders #4)The Bear at Midnight by Lexie Conyngham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

 

 

The Bear at Midnight is the fourth intriguing instalment in the Orkneyinga Murders series by Lexie Conyngham. As with the previous books, this is an intriguing historical crime and investigation story- a bit of a whodunit murder mystery that kept me guessing the whole way through.
Again, this story is set in Scotland in the age of the Vikings- with characters we have met previously. And as I have come to expect, this talented author pulled me into the story and transported me through time with her vivid descriptions and detailed storytelling.
This book could be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the previous books, as they are definitely worth the read, too.
Looking forward to more.

Thank you, Lexie Conyngham!

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles Book 2) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Angela Hayes

To be a Fae Guardian (Realm Chronicles, #2)To be a Fae Guardian by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

4.5 Stars

 

To Be A Fae Guardian is the second book in the Realm Chronicles by Tricia Copeland. This book continues the story we started in book one, so if you have yet to read the first book, I highly recommend that you do before beginning this one as that first book really lays strong foundations and provides character introductions, storyline, and other important information that you will need in order to fully appreciate this second instalment.
Having read quite a few of Ms. Copelands books, I can always count on her to provide an engrossing read, and this story was no exception. As with the first book, this is an awesome fantasy adventure, with faeries, good vs evil, fantastic world building, magic, action, mystery, drama, danger, secrets, prophecy and plenty of surprising developments.
After everything that happened in the first book, Titania has a lot weighing on her shoulders. With an evil force ready to strike, it is up to Titania to ensure that evil doesn’t triumph. But things won’t be easy, with challenges aplenty- which definitely makes for a gripping read.
I am hoping that the author has plenty more planned for the Realm Chronicles, as I am well and truly hooked!

Thank you, Tricia Copeland!

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan Book 2) by Anise Storm – Review by Angela Hayes

Imperfectly Yours (Titans of Manhattan #2)Imperfectly Yours by Anise Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

5 Stars

 

Imperfectly Yours is the second book in the Titans of Manhattan series by Anise Storm. After reading the first book in this fantastic series, and loving every word, I was really excited to get my hands on this second instalment. I had really high expectations after book one, so I am happy to say that this was every bit as good as I hoped for, if not better (even though the author did have me more than a little worried there for a while).
We met Anton and Elsa in Book One, Conveniently Yours, as Anton is one of Caspian’s best friends. So, I was already intrigued by these two characters before I had even opened the book.
Anton and Elsa have the fairytale romance, and life is good- but are the foundations of their relationship strong enough to withstand the cracks that start to appear and threaten to crumble their perfect fairytale. Well, no spoilers hers, but I certainly couldn’t put the book down until I had read every single word and found out how it all played out in the end.
Looking forward to the rest o the series!
Happy reading!

Thank you, Anise Storm!

Face the Fire (Moore Family Saga Book 5) by Michele Sims – Review by Angela Hayes

Face the FireFace the Fire by Michele Sims
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

4 Stars

 

Face the Fire: A Romantic Paranormal Suspense Novel is the fifth Book in the Moore Family Saga series by Michele Sims. Having enjoyed the other books in the series I was happy to dive right into this story and find out what it had in store for us, and the characters.
I really recommend reading the previous (four) instalments before starting on this one as they contain important storyline details that will help you fully appreciate the characters and help you to really understand this story, as well as the series as a whole.
This is an exciting romantic suspense with paranormal elements, magical realism, secrets, musical empire, fame, success, family, danger, emotion, and more. Miles and Bella seem to have the world at their feet, but will the cost be too high a price to pay? It’s well worth the read to find out…
Another superb addition to the series!
Happy reading!

Thank you, Michele Sims!

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder on the Moor Book 3) by Andrea Matthews – Review by Angela Hayes

Shake Loose the Border (Thunder On The Moor Book 3)Shake Loose the Border by Andrea Matthews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

3.5 Stars

 

Shake Loose the Border is the third instalment in the Thunder On The Moor series by Andrea Matthews. As with the previous two books, this is a time travel romance, with fantasy, action, adventure, danger, tension, drama, mystery, suspense, history, and more.
If you haven’t read the previous two books, I highly recommend that you do so before starting on this book, as there is a lot of important storyline and relevant information there that will better help you appreciate and understand the storyline, characters, and other interesting details.
Just when the future seemed so hopeful and things looked more settled for Will and Maggie, fate throws them another curve ball- and the results could see them separated forever. What happens? Well, you really should read all the intriguing details for yourself.
The story continues in the next instalment- so bring on ‘With Fire and Sword’ (Book #4)…
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Andrea Matthews.

Theodore’s Ring by Stacy-Deanne – Review by Angela Hayes

Theodore's RingTheodore’s Ring by Stacy-Deanne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

3 Stars

 

Theodore’s Ring: A BWWM Action Adventure Romance by Stacy-Deanne is a fun and entertaining story, I only wish it had been a little longer.
The blurb held all the promise of action, adventure, mystery romance, danger, drama, survival, tension, a thrilling quest, and hidden agendas. All the ingredients that I love to find in a great story. And while I did enjoy the story, I feel that it needed to be a bit longer and more developed in order to get the full potential and impact of the adventure. Some parts seemed rushed, while other parts lagged, or simply lacked the detail and description I would have loved to see/know more of.
But, overall, it was a fun read!

Thank you, Stacy-Deanne!
