Sessrúmnir (Antipodes Series Book #5) by T.S. Simons

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Sessrúmnir is the fifth book in the Antipodes Series. Freyja is back and she’s moving on. You’ve got to read it to find out what happens.

Freyja is moving on with her life. She and Cam have grown apart and it’s obvious. She wants to get away and thinks she can keep her children safe. But can she? The quote I chose for Freyja is: “She is so naughty, but I can’t help but laugh at how creative she is! Between her and Caitlin, I am surprised poor Bridget hasn’t had a breakdown by now. Do you remember the time they painted Bridget’s chair with brown paint?”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

Caim (Antipodes Series #4) by T.S. Simons

This is another great read by the author. Caim is a great read and now I’m understanding more and more of the story. This is the fourth book in the Antipodes Series.

Cam is back and now he’s got kids to worry about. He and his wife are awake early one morning due to guests. When they discover who it is, things get tricky. Can they figure it out? The quote I chose for Cam is: “It was a massive omission. You stitched us both that day and said nothing. Not to mention all those evenings we spent together. We trusted you. Thought you were our friend.”

Freyja is Cam’s wife and mother of his kids. When they go to meet the guests she finds that their daughters look just like her and her daughters. That can’t be right, can it? The quote I chose for Freyja is: “God had nothing to do with it.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

Not my first read by the author. Won’t be my last either. The Antipodes Series just keeps getting better and better. Ouroboros is the third book in the series and a great read.

Cam is back again and this time it’s for his wife. She was taken and killed. He meets new friends along the way and catches up with old friends. Will he be able to survive? The quote I chose for Cam is: “I’m well, thank you. My profuse thanks to you for the antibiotics and painkillers. They undoubtedly saved my life.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

5/5 Stars

The Liminal Space (Antipodes Series #2) by T.S. Simons

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. The Liminal Space is the second book in the Antipodes Series. The author knows how to create a world where the readers can get lost in. This book is amazing and I really think you’ll enjoy it.

Cam is back with the people he’s missed dearly. He and his girl are expecting their first child together. He’s not sure how to handle that and wishes his parents were there. The quote I chose for Cam is: “I thought it was odd too. But if it houses an antipodal point, and it evidently does, then it makes sense, doesn’t it?”

Lae is with Cam and is pregnant. She’s heard of the tales and is happy he’s home. Now she’s got to make him realize that he’s where he belongs. The quote I chose for Lae is: “Yes, if nothing else, the quality of our food has taken a marked downward slide since you left. Don’t tell Fraser I said so. Also, I overheard some men planning a trip into Stornoway to track down mountain bikes like yours. There must be a shop there. They can’t believe that they didn’t think of that before, especially now that the community is more widely spread.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

Antipodes (Antipodes Series Book 1) by T.S. Simons

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. Antidotes is a fantastic read. This was a hard one to put down and I absolutely loved it. This is the first book in the Antipodes Series.

Cam doesn’t think things are gonna get bad. Then a virus hits the water and they can’t contain it. He then finds that he’s going to be in a group of handpicked people. They might be able to find the cure and how to contain it. The quote I chose for Cam is: “I guessed that, but what do they think we can do to help? We are half a world away. Are they looking for more lab technicians? It isn’t my field. Yours either, come to think of it. Electrical engineers rarely solve biological problems. Besides, why take my blood for that?”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

This Night Has Ended: A Dark Supernatural Fantasy (Vampire State #5) by Alexander Charalambides

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. This is also the first book I’ve read in the Vampire State Series. This Night Has Ended is the fifth book in the Vampire State Series. This book will have you hanging on to every word.

Rowena is a human who is turning into a vampire thanks to her boyfriend. Rowena stands up for humans and others don’t like that. Now they’re in danger and she wants to protect them. The quote I chose for Rowena is: “Shut up, let’s go up to my office, people are less likely to see us and we can watch the street for Quintus.”

Vincenzo is a vampire and is sticking by Rowena’s side. He is helping her with what she wants to do. The studio is somewhere they can stay safe while they figure out their next move. The quote I chose for Vincenzo is: “We’re mapping the city, assigning scarcity and danger levels based on first hand reports, telling people where to stay away from or go to, that kind of thing, take this, find them on the map, red pin for dangerous, green pin for safe, black pin for places we still aren’t sure about.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You #1) by Brittany Anne

This is the first book I’ve read by Anne. As my first dystopian book I’ve got to say that I’ll be back. Anne has a way of sucking in you into the world she creates.

Rain has been hiding for years. She doesn’t know why she’s helping the man, but she was being nice. Now his wounds are healed. She’s falling for him. The quote I chose for Rain is: “I’ve been cleaning your wounds twice daily for a week now. I’ve been giving you antibiotics, both in the crushed pills and in an ointment I’ve been putting on your wounds. You seem to like the broth more than water, so I’m glad I started giving you that a few days ago. I’m glad you like it.”

Hunter is working far from home. He hears someone calling for help, but when he goes to help she starts screaming worse. He then gets hurt and wakes up in a small house. The quote I chose for Hunter is: “I’m sorry, Sawyer, but I’m not taking those two. This mission is easy, yes, but it’s far. I’m not spending weeks with those two idiots just because you say so.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You Book 1) by Brittany Anne was amazing! This was a short and quick read for me. I’m new to the dystopian genre and have read very few of them. I was immediately sucked in. It was action-packed and suspenseful which kept me intrigued and wondering what would happen as I quickly turned the pages. The characters were all wonderful and relatable and Born to Fight had excellent world-building. I haven’t read Brittany Anne before, but she has a new fan. I can’t wait to read more from her!

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You, #1)Born to Fight by Brittany Anne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An unforgettable Dystopian romance. This book had me hooked. Between the world building and the budding romance I could not put this book down. I loved the characters and their will to fight back against those who would take everyone’s free will or kill them.

Rain has been living in hiding and isolation for 2 years until one day she stumbles upon a dying man. She could leave him where she found him. It would be safer for her, but her good heart will not allow that.

The man she saved is none other than Hunter Kane. The leader of the Resistance. A group of people who have dedicated their lives to taking down the tryanny that caused America to fall. They rule and control everything. They are the UNR.

Since meeting Hunter, Rain for the first time has hope that her life can be more than one of solitary confinement. Meanwhile, Hunter begins to wonder if he can have the chance to be more than just a Resistance soldier. The two have an undeniable instant connection, but between secrets and the UNR they may not stand a chance.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5/5 Stars

Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash #3) by Amanda Marin

The third and final book in the Crimson Sash Series by Amanda Marin. Out of the three books this is by far my favorite. We get to see an ending to Neve and Micah’s story. I honestly didn’t want it to end.

Neve has come to terms that she may never be free from the Nation. Things get worse before they get better. When others from the Nation show up they aren’t exactly kind. The quote I choose for Neve is: “Blythe’s out of surgery. She made it. She’s still unconscious, but she’s all right for now.”

Micah is finally with his parents, but things aren’t as good as they should be. They’re far from a family, but that changes soon. Micah learns the truth about his father. He helps with a plan he shouldn’t be involved in. The quote I choose for Micah is: “Not Joah … he should’ve left Joah alone …”

This is by far the best book in the series. Amanda has an amazing talent for writing. This will not be the only series I read by her. I do highly recommend this book and tissues. Don’t forget the tissues.
