The third of the Four Horseman Novels, Hitting the High Notes was every bit as spellbinding as the first two stories in the series. Action packed, with suspense and several little surprises. Our hero in this story is Uriel. He is quite a bit different than his siblings but every bit as lethal. Our heroine is quite a surprise. C.A. King gives us a bit of mystery in this one which makes the story even more riveting. A light romance, easy to read, and well worth your time.
Hitting the High Note by C.A. King (Book 3 in the Four Horsemen series) was a fun quick read. This book tells us about Uriel who thinks himself a cowboy. Which was again unique and different to me. That’s something I like about the author is her ability to come up with different characters and plots. Overall I really enjoyed it and look forward to others. 4 star rating.
Hang On To Your Shirt Tails by C. A. King is a must read. I highly recommend reading the first book in the series because then you will get the story of Tails and Brodie. C. A. King is an amazing author who writes awesome supernatural thrillers. She has this ability of pulling me in as the reader into her world and keeping me there with all the twists and turns that happen in the story will keep you reading. There is a tendency for me to turn the pages to fast and miss the last sentence on the page. We see Tails and Brodie who took themselves and their adopted children away from the group and live in isolation. They believe that they will be better off this way, but will they? Can they just walk away from the “club”? Can it be this simple?
Hitting the High Note is the third book in C.A. King’s fantasy series of Four Horsemen Novels. The series takes place in a modern day setting with a beautiful and elaborate mythology at its heart. There are demigods and demons, fighting over the fate of the world. There are horsemen and there are keys – soulmates tied together by their destiny.
As the title suggests, the protagonist of Hitting the High Note is a musician. Bekka has worked in her family music shop all her life, and it seems likely she will continue running it unless she plucks up the courage to audition for an orchestra. I enjoyed how the music was threaded through the plot – I’ve always been a fan of musical magic! I also appreciated Bekka’s taste for tea – the descriptions of her making and drinking tea made my mouth water!
This series is fantastic – the world is well developed and complex and the mythology links in with various familiar mythologies whilst still being unique and surprising. The characters at the centre of each book continue to appear in the background of subsequent books, so it’s great to catch up on them. And Uriel, the horseman this book focuses on, has already appeared in the past so I was eager to learn more of his character.
I would recommend reading the books in order, to get the full story, although King does a good job of reminding readers of what has happened so you could probably get away with reading this on its own if you’re particularly after a fantasy book about music.
For me, this is another five star book. It’s a great series, and I’m particularly excited about having a music-focused book! I’d recommend the series to fans of mythology and urban fantasy. Looking forward to reading the next one!
I give Hitting The High Note (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 3) by C.A. King, 4 stars.
Bekka owns a small music store passed down through her family and must make ends meet in order to keep it running. But her love of music makes her even more determined to make sure this works. Unfortunately, her people skills are not that great. Part of her wishes she could be more like her best friend, Veronica. But Veronica has her own issues — she is constantly searching for the one man to make her dreams come true. She has this pull — this need — to find the right one.
Uriel, one of the four horsemen, loves the wide openness of the country, but a lead takes him into the heart of the city. There he runs into all sorts of things telling him the demons are closer than he believed. Can he stop the demons from getting what they are after? Can he find it himself? What about these two girls who look like twins? Is what his family says true?
It has been quite a while since I have read book two, but I was quickly reminded just how much I like these books and characters. While the suspense part of the series continues, the love story part is quite different from the previous books. Just when you think the story will go one way, it surprises you and does something completely different. I love to be kept guessing in this way. And the fact that our favorite family is back makes it that much better. The author quickly draws you in and I eagerly await the next book to see what is next.
If you are a fan of the paranormal, I highly recommend this book and series.

To Kill a Fae (The Dragon Portal Book 1) by Jamie A. Waters. I’m just going to start this review with wow, Because honestly no words will do this story justice. I’m a person that truly has to be in the mood for a fantasy type story but from the description I hoped right in and was taken on quite the adventure. The characters are so well written and you can’t help but get drawn into their world. I was constantly finding myself trying to read faster so I could see what happens while also not wanting it to end. The author takes readers to a whole new world and I loved it. I can’t wait for more! Five stars all the way and highly recommend!

Imprisoned Online: Gaming the System (A LitRPG Adventure Book 1) P.A. Wikoff. While not in my normal wheelhouse of reading I did find this an interesting read. It’s got plenty of adventure and action. It’s a unique story and I liked how different it is to the story world. Characters are complex and well developed. Storyline had a way of drawing me in and I soon found myself not being able to put it down. It’s a well written storyline and I liked the pace. I was pleasantly surprised by the way I like it, not because the author did anything wrong just because it’s not something I’d normally pick up but I’m definitely glad I game it a try and think you should to. I’m giving this story a four star review and recommend it.
“Humans have always required knowledge.”
CONFESSION: This author is an auto one-click for me because I enjoy all of her books. I read these books based on the author’s name alone.
Glad I got that out of the way…
HITTING THE HIGH NOTE is Book 3 of the Four Horsemen Series and it is my very strong recommendation that you read this series in order. This story is Uriel’s and he may be my favorite sibling.
I do not want to give anything away in this story so I will continue to be vague, just know that there was an ad that said… “Demons and followers seeking the key to the gates of hell…” I mean, how can a story not be a 5 star read with THOSE words written into a paragraph.
I absolutely recommend this story, this series and this author.
