Plague of Death (Anchoress Series Book 2) by D.L. Armillei – Review by Katrina Evanochko

Plague of Death (Anchoress, #2)Plague of Death by D.L. Armillei
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book 2 in the Anchoress series picks up one year after the close of book 1. Van has spent the past year training for her role as protector of the Lodians, almost to the exclusion of anything else. It is understandable that she focuses so hard on this – it is something she has control over in her life, and there is not a lot of that… she isn’t allowed to date the person she loves, she has to deal with her nemesis Pernilla, and she hasn’t been allowed off-island to search for Daisy. Add to that the grief she is dealing with over the loss of her father, her stepmother has a new boyfriend, and the spirit guide she has is not as helpful as she would like. Van, unsurprisingly, is quite stubborn in this book, and it sometimes takes a lot for her to learn the lesson necessary for her to learn, such as why shutting off your emotions entirely is not a great idea. I was happy to see some growth from Paley in this book, Ferox is interesting, and I did not learn as much about Uxa as I had hoped. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in book 3!

Shock of Fate (Anchoress Series Book 1) by D.L. Armillei – Review by Katrina Evanochko

Shock of Fate (Anchoress #1)Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The author has created an interesting world. I enjoyed the story and most of the supporting characters were great. The mystery of Van’s father kept me intrigued and for once I did not figure out what really happened – the author did a good job of keeping me guessing about him and his true motives. The thing I struggled with was Van and Paley’s immaturity. Yes, they are 15, but they were both so shallow. They were raised that way, which let me give them some leeway, but it was a struggle at times to continue. I was happy to see the start of some growth from Van, and I hope that continues as the series does.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an incredibly intense and wonderful book! The story of Grace and Ian starts out with a devious twist. They have both been through rough romantic pasts and come together with some new challenges to work out and through before they can make this relation ship work. The chemistry is definitely there. The tension is palpable. The characters are so relatable. Grace owns a flower shop and struggles to maintain her independence and heal from past trauma. The struggle is real. Sheila just needs to grow up. Ian just wants to love Grace. The plot was so beautiful and brought tears at times. You feel all the emotions. Fabulous book. Highly recommend.

Helm of Awe (Anchoress Series Book 3) by D.L. Armillei – Review by Skylar Daniels

Helm of Awe (Anchoress Series #3)Helm of Awe by D.L. Armillei
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the Anchoress Series. You’ll need to read the first two books (in my opinion) before starting on this one. Reading the other 2 books in the series you’ll understand what’s going on in the book better. Also, you wouldn’t want to miss out on any of the adventures Van and her team bark on. The author has a way of bringing her story to life and allows us to see through her eyes and feel everything that’s going on. Experience all of the emotions happening in every moment. It’s written so beautifully, so vividly that it’s an experience, an adventure, and not just another fantasy story. It’s an amazing book and will be through for years to come. I look forward to this author books in the future.

Shock of Fate (Anchoress #1)Shock of Fate by D.L. Armillei
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I struggled at the beginning of this book because the main character and her best friend were the absolute worst Spoiled and whiny. I just couldn’t connect with two annoying 15 year olds. Van finally started to grow on me but Paley the best friend did not. I really enjoyed the side characters more than anything. The story was definitely original and I enjoyed how the whole world was created. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story takes us.

The Billionaire’s Slave by Stacy-Deanne – Review by Brittany Porter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’d strongly suggest those looking to read this book read the description, disclaimer, and reviews. Leave your new age thinking at the door for a while and enjoy the story for what it is. I really enjoyed this authors writing style. The story moved smoothly and was fun to read. Lots of sexy scenes! More than I anticipated, which is great! I truly enjoyed hearing about Penny’s story. My only suggestion would be that her and her Massa’s first time be a little more detailed. There were other random scenes in the book that gave more away than the long anticipated first time! I’m so happy I picked up with book and would highly recommend.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so much better than I expected! I assumed it would be like most books geared towards middle schoolers – a bit fluffy and cheesy. But it actually does a great job hitting on some deeper topics while still being a great, easy and enjoyable read! Definitely recommend for middle and high school readers, but adults would enjoy it too (I know I did)!

(UN)Loved (Mixed Emotions Series) by Katy Hunter – Review by Shelly Kittell

(Un)Loved (Mixed Emotions, #1)(Un)Loved by Katy Hunter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was awesome. Sophie is an actress with a case of “I want more in life.” She wants G but he’s a tad commitment shy. She takes us through her journey to get him to commit. This story leaves you laughing because there’s a grumpy llama, the French countryside. G’s parents are a bit more sexually liberated so you have some spice, ooh la la. And the big finish, lots of chuckles. The struggle is real for Sophie, and oh, can I relate. The characters are real and relatable. The plot, at times, feels a little out there but that’s what makes it a fun romance. You’ll feel her every emotion and just want to commiserate with her. It’s a quick read and so enjoyable. Give it a read. Highly recommend it.
