A Veil of Gods and Kings (Apollo Ascending Book 1) by Nicole Bailey – Review by Netania Lim

A Veil of Gods and Kings (Apollo Ascending, #1)A Veil of Gods and Kings by Nicole Bailey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve read some Greek mythology retellings, but I’ve never read one about Apollo and Hyacinth, and I really enjoyed this one. It’s more YA in writing style but I also liked the fact that the mythology was modernised and it was more a story of imagination and fantasy rather than a straight retelling of the original myth. It was really the depth of character that pulled me into the story and the romance/tension is off the charts. I will definitely be keeping my eye out for the next book!

A Veil of Gods and Kings is the first book in the Apollo Ascending series by Nicole Bailey. What happens when a god who is a bit of a tortured soul and haunted by his memories, fights his fate, and in doing so takes a stand against his father? Well, we are talking about Apollo, who is supposed to ascend to become the god of the sun- and yep you guessed it, his father being Zeus himself. So, as you can imagine, Apollo’s refusal to accept his fate doesn’t go over too well with daddy dearest, resulting in Zeus making an ultimatum. Now Apollo has been forced into a mentorship under the guidance of the insufferable Prince Hyacinth. Something neither of them relish. Things are going to get complicated- rather quickly. Especially when their chemistry begins to simmer and smoulder. What happens next makes for a very intriguing read.
This is a NA reimagining of the Apollo myth; an enemies to lovers fantasy with a slow-burn MM romance (nothing explicit), plenty of emotion, angst, drama, danger, layers, banter, and intrigue. And can we take a moment to appreciate this gorgeous cover! It sold me even before I knew anything else about the book. Love me a gorgeous cover!
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Nicole Bailey!

Taming of the Few (Guardians of the PHAE Book 1) by Rowan Dillon – Review by Jo Frizzell

Taming of the FewTaming of the Few by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is so beautifully written! The descriptions were so vibrantly authored that it made me think of Tolkien’s illustrative language. I really enjoyed the way the point of view alternated which let me as reader understand more characters. I also adored the realistic and genuine relationships and the way the characters interacted with each other. Learning the backstory of characters is so interesting to me, seeing why they react to different situations the way they do, because I have an understanding of who they are. This book is just fabulous and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys some modern fantasy!

Taylor is barely holding her anxiety at bay. With scales growing on her body and shocking magic now at her command, the teacher flees after being outed by a student and attacked by an angry mob. And after arriving at a safehouse on a farm in Ireland for training and protection, she feels unprepared for her first mission to neutralize an explosive threat.

Vietnam vet Maximilian Hurley subdues his demons with drink. So when the troubled pilot loses his play to a mysterious fire, and an Unhidden agent comes to Australia to recruit him, he doesn’t have much to lose. Teaming up with Anna, the tough-talking Aussie battles through his PTSD as they save Cork from a devastating bombing.

As the group of talents grows to a core crew of six, Anna and Max discover there’s little peace as a coalition of xenophobic extremists rises against those with Unhidden Blood. And now their combined superpowers might be the only thing standing in the way of their total extermination…

Can Anna, Max, and the squad stem a tsunami of chaos and death?

The-Know-It-All-Pencil (Invisible Magic Wand Series) by Lois Wickstrom – Review By Amber Day

The Know-It-All Pencil (Invisible Magic Wand)The Know-It-All Pencil by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is too cute. It is a great book perfect for little kids. The know-it-all pencil story and illustrations were beautifully done. We watch Caspian as he and the pencil go on a little adventure and learn a lesson or two. It is a perfect read for children and those who still love a good children’s book. I will be sharing it with my nieces and nephews.
