By: Deborah Garland
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant #1) by Deborah Garland was a hooking, hot read, that had me flipping the pages.

My, my, I have to say for a book, that for me had a shaky start, it quickly turned itself around and quickly made me a fan. As I an a fan of this author, I was super excited to get my hands on this different book from her. As her other series is non-paranormal, I was intrigued to see what new twists, and myths this author would bring to the vampire table. I was not disappointed in the least. Fresh and entertaining, Deborah managed to breathe new live into an over saturated market, and sparked a new love for the genera for me.

The only thing that I would change about this book, would be the opening. Now it did start with a nice well place opening chapter, it was the following one, when the POV switched to Alex, that I had problems. It’s a spoiler so I can’t get too much into it, but it touch on something a little too, dark in regards to consent and “primal urges”, and in all honesty, if that scene was taken out, it wouldn’t effect the book or plot in anyway shape or form. This’s ultimately why I can’t give this book a 5 star.

Overall outside of that, this book was as I said, fresh, unique, and entertaining. It has this nice twist, and I loved the new take on the vampire mythology. Once the secondary characters got introduced, things started to heat up, and the main non-love plot got underway, I was absorbed into this read and I didn’t want it to end. The MC’s, I got nothing but love for them, and I simply loved Alex’s tone and voice. That dual POV was a key move, and one that elevated this story into something magical.

To end, and if you haven’t guessed, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns #2) by Brandi Elledge – Review by Emily Walsh

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns Book 2)The Queen of Witches
By: Brandi Elledge
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Queen of Witches (Wheel of Crowns #2) by Brandi Elledge was a fast pace, action packed, intriguing read, that had me hooked form start to finish.

The second book in the Wheel of Crowns series, and just like the first I could not put this book down. Something to know about this series, it can be read as a standalone, so if you haven’t read the first book, no worries, cause you can just jump in right here. But I do suggest reading the first book cause, it’s just as outstanding as this one. The attention to detail, the plot, the characters, everything was on point, engaging, pulling, and man at one point I forgot I was reading I was so absorbed in this amazing fantasy world that Brandi Elledge has created. This book, this series, is a must read from me, and it’s probably one of the best I have read so far this year!

So if you haven’t guessed, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

In a world where a woman’s purity is the fine line between being Queen and being killed, he was given one duty—to protect my purity and above all, to protect me. Both were a battle we weren’t ready for.
Forced by tradition, and as their chosen Queen, I must endure my trials and the suitor phase, ultimately giving myself to a man from the Royal Houses. Each one competes to be my King, all wanting what no other has had…my purity.
To have what I truly want would risk my entire reign, but to do what is expected of me would destroy my heart. My only protection is to follow through, giving each royal the opportunity to win their prize…me in a bedroom suite and a crown atop their head.
Behind closed doors, I commit my biggest sin, loving a man I’m forbidden to have. When the time comes for me to be crowned, I’ll be forced to make a choice—risk our love or risk my life.

While some bonds break, fate built theirs to last forever.

Winning the battle against Melia was supposed to give Trinity and Blain a chance to live a normal life. The problem is another evil has taken the Rogue’s place, shattering any promise of a future Trinity hoped to have with her sworn guardian.

Darkness now controls Blain.

Freeing his soul is a challenge Trinity gladly accepts, but rescuing the love of her life comes with one major complication. To save him she must go through Cronus, the ancient god who holds Blain’s light hostage.

Every Watcher Trinity enlisted failed.

Nothing is too extreme if it releases Blain. Summoning a forgotten god is dangerous, but for help in the fight against Cronus it’s worth the risk. In the end, she’ll even gamble her own soul to set Blain’s free.

Protecting humankind isn’t just a destiny Trinity was born to uphold—it’s her rite of passage. One that may cost her life.

In the end, light may not be enough to outshine the darkness.

After Melia’s near-fatal attack, the connection binding Trinity and Blain shifts, allowing a dark force to wedge them apart. Her only hope for the life she craves is stopping Melia and her gang of Rogues.

Too bad life never plays fair. As Trinity’s eighteenth birthday draws near, new abilities manifest. More problems occur when objects around her spontaneously erupt in flames. While Trinity tries to manage her new powers, Blain works with Watchers to root out Melia’s hiding place. Unfortunately, Trinity’s uncontrolled talent evokes suspicion, causing old friends to challenge her ability to fulfill her destiny.

Havoc between the immortals ensues, leaving mortals unprotected as a new threat surfaces. Melia found a way to awaken an ancient god, whose wrath–if released–is sure to create more devastation than Pandora ever dreamed of. Everything about Trinity’s life is changing, except her vow: Keep those she cares for safe.

But fate always has an ulterior plan.

When everything else is lost, there is always hope.

While most teens want an epic senior year, Trinity Whitebone hoped for a normal one. Being seventeen was hard enough. Having the emotions of everyone around you in your head made life more than a little difficult.

Until Blain Heros enrolled.

He screamed hot-god in jeans with just his walk. His intense stare warmed her skin like a thousand suns. Unfortunately, his interest in her seemed to run from blazing to freezing in the span of moments and left her nothing but confused. She could deal with things not being normal, but when life goes from strange to dangerous…

Trinity is the direct descendant of Pandora and fated to rectify the terrors released into the world by her curious ancestor. With powers she didn’t know existed and abilities she never wanted, Trinity tries to walk away from everything her life had become. She thought she could turn her back on her fate, until a band of rogue immortals discover who she is and will do whatever it takes to control her powers. Trinity is left with one decision…Embrace fate or die trying.
