It Comes From Within (House Valdis Book 2) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Liz Vrchota

It Comes From Within (House Valdis #2)It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second novel in the House Valdis novels from Naomi Valkyrie and I have been loving every adventure filled moment reading them. I would highly recommend that you read the first book before diving into this one because you will need that story background to fully enjoy and follow the novel. One of my favorite parts of reading Valkyrie is she manages to spin a fantasy novel with detail and action that keeps me enthralled. I like the dark elements and the attention to the details that matter. Often while reading fantasy novels I get lost in the made up languages or scenarios that the world is hard for me to dive in. I do not have that problem with Valkyrie’s novels and I love it.This novel takes up six months after the first book and we find Xenobia dealing with a complex set of issues. The way this story builds upon itself makes it hard for me to review without divulging way too much of the good stuff so for the details you will have to read this one yourself. I can’t wait to see what adventures we will find Xenobia and the rest of the gang take on in the next novel!

The Guard (A Soppranaturale Series Book 2) by Ashley Pagano – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Guard: A Soppranaturale Series: Book 2The Guard: A Soppranaturale Series: Book 2 by Ashley Pagano
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book. This is book two in this series, I highly suggest you read book one before this one. It will help your enhancement of this series and get to know where the characters come from and where they are now. This is a great second part of this story. Ommily and Link’s story picks up where they have just found each other and have been accepted into the Guard. Their journey continues as they take a stand against supernaturals rogues. Their relationship is pushed to limits they did not expect. Will the Guard come out on top or will the hotel fall? What happens to them you don’t want to miss. They bring lots of action and some romance too. It is a fast paced story and easy to read. This book made a great afternoon story and I highly recommend this book.

I loved reading the book Fall of the Western Kings (The Tirumfall Trilogy Book 1) by J Drew Brumbaugh. It is nothing short of an epic fantasy tale that left me breathless.

He also finds those who are evil and have dark purposes will do anything for their agenda to be fulfilled. Will they succeed? What does the future hold for Gant? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. It is a book that I just couldn’t put down until the final page. The story is exciting, entertaining, and amazing to read. Don’t miss out reading this story. I highly recommend it.

Hero High: Heartbreak Rebellion (Hero High Collections Book 2) by Mina Chara – Review by Kerry Baker

Heartbreak Rebellion (Hero High, #4)Heartbreak Rebellion by Mina Chara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hero High: Heartbreak Rebellion by Mina Chara is the second book in the Hero High Collections. This is a brilliant collection of books that will grab your attention and simply not let go. This is books 4-6 in the series so I would definitely recommend reading the others ones first.
I think the author has done an amazing job of creating such a strong and interesting series. Each of the books are great in their own right, resulting in an overall amazing series. The characters are all so well written and you really do engage with them. It is so easy to picture them all as if you are right their alongside them.
Each of the stories in these books kept me interested for different reasons. They are clearly part of the same series but all have a slightly different feel about them. It helped to keep them separate in my mind while also keeping them cohesive and flowing well. This is a brilliant series and if you are a fan of this genre I would high recommend them!

The Perfect Outcast by Melissa O. Hansen – Review by Katie Matthews

The Perfect OutcastThe Perfect Outcast by Melissa Ott Hansen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I have to say when I first read the synopsis for this book I was intrigued, sci-fi/dystopian stories aren’t really my usual go to stories but I’ve read a few lately so I thought I would give this one a go and I really enjoyed it overall! I thought the writing was great, I was drawn in to the story quite quickly and I thought the authors writing was creative and it captured my imagination. I really liked Alina, I thought that she was a really relatable character, and I especially think young adults/teenagers would find that connection with her too. I enjoyed reading about her journey and seeing her grow as a person over the story.
A really great read and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!

It Comes From Within (House Valdis #2)It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie is the second book in the House Valdis series. This is an incredible book that utterly captivated me from the word go. I love reading about Xenobia. She is such a wonderful character that for me really makes the whole story come alive. I can imagine her so easily and it really feels like I am right there with her.
I would recommend reading this series in order so you can fully understand what is going on although also because they are such fantastic books. The author has written brilliantly original books that are so well developed and thought out that you won’t be able to stop reading them once you have started. There is a bit of everything in there so it really tantalises all of the sense.
I absolutely loved this book from start to finish and I am already eagerly awaiting to see what might be next – in the meantime I might have to re-read the whole series again.

The Perfect Outcast by Melissa O. Hansen – Review by Kerry Baker

The Perfect OutcastThe Perfect Outcast by Melissa Ott Hansen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Perfect Outcast by Melissa O. Hansen is a young adult story set in a dystopian world that is different to any world you have experienced. This is an interesting story that will really get you thinking and re-evaluate what you class as “perfect”.
The description of this book caught my eye immediately. I knew I wanted to know more about this world and the supposedly imperfect Alina. From the moment I started reading I was transported into a world where things couldn’t be more different than we experience ourselves day to day.
As the story progresses you are really drawn into examining the perspective of perfect. The fact that it is done in the way the author has written it as well just makes it all the better. Although a lot of the basic themes of the book aren’t unique I thought the overall premise and the way it was written definitely was! This was a fantastic book and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

By Mina Chara
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading Hero High: Heartbreak Rebellion (Hero High Collections Book 2) by Mina Chara. It is a collection of stories that pulled me in, and I was hooked. Friday Fitzsimmons is back, and I just love reading about her. In these stories, she shows her emotional side as well as her strong side. Secrets are uncovered and a school needs to be saved. What will happen? Read this book to find out. This is a story that has action and danger. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. The author does a wonderful job of making both the storyline and the characters come alive on the pages. Many additional characters are in the story. Some of them are helpful and then there are those with an evil agenda. Will they be stopped? Friday is a character that I have grown to love as the read this series and I can’t help but want her to be happy. She is also a character that I could root for her to succeed in all that she does. Don’t miss out on a collection of stories that you will not want to put down until you have read the final page. I highly recommend both these stories and the entire series.

Fall of the Western Kings (Tirumfall Trilogy #1)Fall of the Western Kings by J. Drew Brumbaugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and I look forward to reading more from them. I enjoyed how well written this story is. It is easy flowing and understandable. I also found it to be engaging and fast paced. The characters bring the story to life with epic fantasy action. I had no problems connecting to them. This is a story about Grant. He has been labeled an outlaw because of learning to use a sword. Now fate has some other things in store for him. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what the fates have for him. He made a great character that kept me reading just to find out what happened next. He is strong and handsome to boot. This made a great afternoon read and I was happy I picked it up.

It Comes From Within (House Valdis #2)It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This the second book in the series and I highly recommend reading the first book in the series. This will provide you with the back story and introduce the characters. The description is a fantasy genre but it has many more elements in the story. There is sci-fi, danger, responsibility, secrets, tension, romance and magic to name a few. When the author has a vivid imagination, it makes the story come to life. It is what holds my attention from the very first page until the last page. Character building and relations also keeps the book interesting. In this particular story, I enjoyed the roller coaster ride I took with Xenobia. Xenobia’s storyline continues in book two. She is getting into every bit of trouble, not by her doing but by shadows she does not realize they are around. Danger is present and there is a crisis in the House of Valdis. There is drama and adventure around every corner. I will leave the review with this keep your mind totally open and the images will come to you. Enjoy the series and I cannot wait until the next book.
