Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened Series Book 1) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Kerry Baker

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened, #1)Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart is the first book in the Blackened Series. This book is a dark fantasy book that is certainly a bit of a twist on your normal story.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I definitely enjoyed it. The idea for the story was a strong one, and one that certainly held my interest. While I found that the actual story fell a little flat in a few places I thought overall it was well written and the writing style made up for this.
I enjoyed reading about character of Isra. It was nice to read about a character who seemed truly dark for once, instead of just playing at the idea. Again there were times when I thought her development needed a little work to it however she was overall an interesting character.
This was a good introduction to this author and I will definitely be reading more of her in the future.

One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge Book 1) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Kerry Baker

One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge, #1)One Hot Texas Summer by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One Hot Texas Summer by Nicole Flockton is the first book in the Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge series. It is one of those books that I found easy to get into and a great way to lose yourself for a few hours in some great characters.
I enjoyed the way this book was written. I found that it was paced pretty well and the story definitely moved along in the right direction. There were times when I struggled a bit with the characters – the connection between them was there it just sometimes felt like it needed a bit of work. However for the most part I found myself engaging with them and interested in their story.
As the start of a new series I though this book did well. It wasn’t too series while also having depth about it and it has caught my interested in the other characters that I assume will form the basis of the rest of the series. This is a good start and a book I enjoyed.
