Ashes of Aldyr (The Obscured Thorne Trilogy Book 1) by Russell Archey. This is the first book I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I must say his work reminded me of JK Tolkien the hobbit works. This dark tale is steeped in evil causing havoc in the new world that Russell has created. The delicate and multilayered threads that have been painstakingly weaved together has become an intriguing and engrossing read.
It’s a great, fast-paced narrative that has enough Tolkien to be familiar yet not be a cut-and-paste copy. The story is riveting and you’ll find yourself wondering what comes next. There are small issues with the story but these are not glaring for those who enjoy good plotlines.

Forever (Diamond Doms #9)Forever by Ivy Nelson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely love a dom based book and Russel does not disappoint he is hot, serious and a strong alpha male. Gemma is married but the attraction her and Russel have for each other is undeniable and she may be able to give him full control and submit in the bedroom but can she do it in everyday life.

What a great book!

Forever is book #9 in this series and I would encourage everyone to read the other books. I def felt like I landed in the living room of a family I didn’t know yet. To say I didn’t want to put it down is an understatement. It has great characters, great action, and great plot line. Gemma comes across kind of superficial at first, but she grew on me as book went on. A few twists in this story that I actually didn’t see coming so that was fun. Needless to say I will be reading other books in the series!

This fantasy horror/thriller really had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. It starts out with a few different perspectives and then settles into the main characters. I felt like I was right there along with them, trying to figure things out and trying to navigate complex emotions. I really can’t see what happens next!

Forever:A Diamond Doms novel, is the last book of this series. I enjoy a good BDSM book and this book does not disappoint. This is my first read of the series and although I hadn’t been introduced to the characters before, it was easy to follow along. On top of the kink in this book, the underlying storyline between the characters, keeps you on our toes and is a great way to finish out the series. I can’t wait to go back and start at the beginning of the books and get introduced to all the characters in each of their own stories.

Forever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson

I was intrigued by this book and have learned some of my limits on what sort of things interest me in that world.   There were some things I never would have ever considered,  but we all like things that other people don’t quite understand.

I have not read the other books in this series which I think was a disadvantage because there were several established characters and their storylines that I didn’t have the background on, well at least not yet.  I would suggest reading these in order since this tied up loose ends.

Russell was a great guy is seemed but too intense for me.  He certainly knew how to care for a woman,  lucky Gemma.  He would give her exactly what she needed and cared for her more than I think a normal partner work.

I envy Gemma in some ways.  She knew what she needed, had no problems (mostly) vocalizing her needs and enjoyed every moment.

I would like to go back and read the others in this series so I can find out how everyone ended up where they were.

This is a new author for me which I enjoyed from beginning to end. This is a well written story that took me on an adventure of magic and creative characters that made the story fun and entertaining to read. The characters are not only relatable but brought the story to life on each page. This is a fast paced story that is engaging and hard to put down. Alda is a world that is broken and as a result of that the magical tree and Elf-kind are dying. Creatures and humans are hiding out in their homes. What happens next you will need to read this book to find out. There is a lot happening but the author did a great job of keeping details straight and not confusing. It is worth the pick up and I am glad that I did. I really enjoyed the adventure it took me on and highly recommend this book.

Ashes of Aldyr by Russell Archey is the First book in the Obscured Throne Trilogy. This is an absolutely captivating book that I juat could not put down. I knew that I was going to be in for a treat when even the blurb of the book got me excited but I was not expected to be so blown away! I was engrossed in this book right right the word go and loved every second of it.
I thought the story was so unique. It isn’t like anything I have read before and that made the whole thing even more excited. I loved this authors writing style too. It just sweeps you up with the story and pulls you along for the ride. It is the first book that I have read by this author and it is a fantastic introduction. This is easily one of the strongest starts to a series I have read for a long time and I cannot wait to get my hands on book two.

I really enjoyed this first book in The Obsecured Throne Trilogy. The author has a fantastic way of writing that makes the story believable even though the characters are mystical. This is a really dark fantasy adventure that keeps you gripped from the beginning and doesn’t let go. At first I found it a bit confusing as it is a story with different characters and than spans time, however it wasn’t so complicated that it was hard to read.

This is a story that will drag you in. It is the first story in a while that I have truelly lost myself in. I lost all concept of time while reading this  book as I couldn’t put it down without knowing what was going to happen next. I really can’t wait to read the next book in this Trilogy.

The world is broken and not as we know it. Fantasy creatures. Unfortunately for me this book didn’t capture me at all. I keep dipping in and out as I couldn’t connect to the characters and found it a hard read. However the writing style is nicely done.
