Ouroboros (Antipodes #3)Ouroboros by T.S. Simons
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this installment of the Antipodes series, Cam has set off on a journey of discovery and healing after the loss of his wife Laetitia when she was cruelly killed, he is in pain and needs some closure, so he heads away from his home, his family and his life so that he can go back to them fully healed and able to be with them completely, so he takes of on his boat. On his naval travels, the first place Cam stops at is Kirkwall and a visit to the community living on Orkney where some of the other women who shared in his late wife’s ordeal live, he cannot remember what happened on that fateful day and so he asks to speak to them when they are ready. In the meantime, he meets up with some old friends and sees how life has changed there over the past year, he is happy to see them and he thinks that they are happy to see him too, or at least some of them are, but he finds out that they are all still suffering too, he knows he has to regain their trust before they will open up to him.

As he introduces himself to the inhabitants of the island he hasn’t yet met, he has a feeling that there is someone in the crowd he knows, but cannot place them, it turns out to be someone who was heading up the recruitment centre where he was chosen when the whole domed community idea was started. As they properly introduce themselves, Cam asks what they have been doing on Orkney and how they ended up there, this leads on to conversations about their role on the island, the portals and everything else they had learned over the last few years and Cam is invited to join them on future trips around the community, to which he readily agrees. He stays with a friend and it is their partner who opens up first and shocks Cam by telling him that the women feared him after his outburst a year ago, but now that they have seen him and he explains his reasons why and his feelings on everything that happened, they can understand him better too. As the days pass and a working relationship with the woman from Australia develops, Cam stays on the island as he waits for the other women to talk to him, he learns all that he can so that he can take the information with him when he gets home. When the opportunity to talk to the women arrives, it helps them all with some closure and acceptance of what happened and Cam is grateful for it all, but nobody is surprised when he continues on his travels past the place he lost his mind to grief and on to another place in Scotland he hoped to find some more answers.

As he approaches the place he needs to go, Cam finds somewhere dry to spend the time he needs to dig for some information, this takes a little longer than planned, but is worth it in the end when he finds what he was looking for, as well as some unexpected information along the way. He makes a few more stops on his travels and shares some of the things he has learned along the way with others who are as shocked as he is, but it causes him to question the friendships he has and others he hasn’t. Will Cam be able to use the information he finds out to look after those he holds dear, or will circumstances beyond his control threaten the life he has come home to find again and will he be able to look on his life and friendships in the same way because of it? This is another journey of secrets, revelations and discovery which keeps you on your toes as you journey along with Cam and those around him, a story you will not want to miss out on.

Quinn McNamara

Blood. Death. War.

A dynasty destroyed.

Leaving me as the ultimate prize.

I’m an unmated Omega Wolf. A Princess. And destined to rule. But the remaining Alpha Princes all want to claim me, their brutal methods terrifying and cruel.

I’ve spent the last century running, hiding in places where no one would think to look.

Only he found me. Prince Kieran, the most powerful shifter of them all.

Our game of hide and seek has come to an end.

It’s time for me to submit.

Or to die fighting.

Kieran O’Callaghan

My little trickster escaped me once. She indulged in a dangerous game of chase throughout the Sectors, but I’ve finally found my prize.

Poor little darling thought I valued chivalry and courting. I’m an Alpha Prince. I take what I want, when I want it, however I want it. And her sweet blood beckons the predator within me to destroy all her dreams of a happily ever after.

Let the Princes enjoy their Royal V-Wars.

As long as they bow to me as King of Blood Sector, I won’t intervene.

Besides, I have a new pretty little Omega to tame. It’s time to put a crown on her and make her my queen.

Author’s Note: This is a standalone dark shifter romance with Omegaverse themes. Kieran is an unapologetic Alpha Prince and Quinn is a feisty Omega Princess. It’s a match made in literal hell where the antihero is the king.

Murder Most Pemberley (Eliza Darcy Mysteries Book 1) by Jessica Berg – Review by Christine Baranek

Murder Most PemberleyMurder Most Pemberley by Jessica Berg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder Most Pemberly
By: Jessica Berg
5*

Eliza is an American who is traveling to England for the very first time. She’s headed there to meet her family, some of whom she has never met. From the beginning, it is clear that there is mystery surrounding the Darcy Family. He father NEVER talks about them and she has never met most of them. But she is invited to a family reunion and she would love to meet them.
She’s a girl who isn’t used to excitement. In fact, she is planning on packing her wool socks instead of her pretty underclothes. She can’t even tell you the last time that she needed pretty underthings. On the plane, it seems that she may have misread the situation. From the second she enters the airport, she meets an amazing man. He happens to end up in the seat next to her on the plane. They hit it off immediately and sparks are flying. On top of being cute he also has an amazing personality.
Despite Eliza’s intentions for the reunion, things take a very different turn. A dead body definitely has different plan for her. When the investigation proves to have clues that may reveal the reason her father no longer speaks to his family and mystery surrounds them, Elize finds herself wanting to help with the investigation.
Eliza has always had a love of Agatha Christie novels and she is optimistic to put her learned skills to use. Soon more and more clues appear that show that there are more bodies around. She needs the help of her aunt and that man from the plane to help keep herself from being the next body that is discovered.
This book was really really good. I loved the banter between Heath (the man from the plane) and Eliza. It definitely kept me guessing as I read.

Antipodes (Antipodes Book 1) by T.S. Simons – Review by Emily Beehler

Antipodes (Antipodes, #1)Antipodes by T.S. Simons

The synopsis of this book was intriguing which is why it summoned me to read it. The book does start slowly, but of course that is to give the reader time to understand the world building and the intent of the author. Personally, I enjoyed this book! The protagonist Campbell “Cam” is a delight to read as we can connect with him on a human-to-human basis. He finds himself in world now that is plagued by well a plague. A new virus spread globally that is killing people faster than the nations can fight it. This forces Cam to learn how to live in a world where society is changing in a post-apocalyptic world. Since society is crumbling, he is chosen to live in a utopia of sorts that hasn’t been touched by the virus and its effects on the world. He is joined by other people who were selected based on not only their merits, but what value they can bring to this budding society of people who were chosen to leave Mainland and Mainland society. What I like about this book was again how human the author made Cam. He is given these choices and lessons, that do affect those around him and can have both good and bad consequences. The reader also gets to read about complex love with Campbell and his lovers. This read is also a good blend of post-apocalypse, fantasy, and romance as is intertwines the three. Overall this is a great read.

A Quirk of Destiny (Quirk of Destiny Book 1) by Catherine Greenall – Review by Callie LaMarche

A Quirk of Destiny: Ignoramus et IgnorabimusA Quirk of Destiny: Ignoramus et Ignorabimus by Catherine Greenall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Quick of Destiny was a bone chilling tale about what can happen if GM food products had disastrous effects on the majority of the population. The book starts off slow in the beginning but it provides a good platform for the main characters. When the disaster strikes is when the story truly takes off and sends Calum and the people around him into a journey of survival. Imagine a world where anyone that has eaten GM effected food products such as meat, dairy turns into a crazy person with no rational thought. That is the world that the majority of the book takes place in. Calum and his friends are put into varies dangerous and exciting situations that they must escape themselves out of into this new world.

Catherine Greenall was able to bring up the issues in our current food predicament in a truly engaging way. It’s a good start on informing people to change their ways by being more green and the dangers of eating GM food.

My main complaint is when the location and/or the point of view switched without a break on paragraphs. Eventually I was able to figure our where the characters were. The only other thing is there are a lot of characters towards the end that weren’t introduced besides their names.

Overall I found the book engaging and thought provoking.

Love in the RosesLove in the Roses by T.L. Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed being able to go visit the 1400s in this book. I often wonder what life is like in different time periods. I really enjoyed the adventure the author took us on in this book. I’m not sure I would survive in a world with arranged marriages, but it’s a lot of fun to read about. I haven’t read this author before, but I’ll be sure to check out other books ASAP.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 out of 5 stars
This Time Around, by Jane Suen

Let me start out by saying that this is a precious book, and I whole heartedly enjoyed every moment of it. This book revolves around the romance of Katie and Chase, and their history together and getting a second chance.
Katie had big dreams after high school, and left her small town, her friends and family, and the boy she loved to follow them in the big city, being too stubborn to ever look back. Now, she finds herself visiting her hometown for a wedding last minute, and the bride surprises her with her first love as her date.
Chase fought hard to forget the pain he felt when Katie left, but as soon as he saw her, he knew his heart wasn’t as hardened to her as he had hoped. Katie thought she had buried her feelings for Chase at the bottom of her heart, but as soon as she saw him, she melted. This is the story of their lives crossing again after 10 years apart, and a love that lasts through the years.
This wholesome and heartwarming book reminds us that there are second chances in life, with friends, family, and sometimes, even in romance.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I typically don’t read prequels but I am so glad I picked this up! My only complaint is that it was so short! It was an intriguing intro into a new series. I will absolutely be picking up the next volume! Can’t wait to see how EmVee’s story turns out!
