By Amanda Marin
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash Book 3) by Amanda Marin. It is a story that pulled me in from the beginning and I was hooked. I have loved reading this series since the first book. I love the characters of Neve Hall and Micah Ward. They are both brave, strong, and have a fierce determination that the Nation’s human rights abuses do not go unpunished. Neve and Micah are characters that you can’t help but root for them to succeed against the Nation. They stand up for those who seek freedom and escape. They also have a love for one another that is undeniable. What does the future hold for Neve, Micah, and the New Republic? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. It has both heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. I found my emotions going up and down the entire time that I was reading the book. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters that each have their part to play in the story. The author does a wonderful job of making both the storyline and the characters come alive. I felt like I was right there with them. Don’t miss out on an exciting and entertaining story that I didn’t want to put down until I had read the final page. I highly recommend reading it. It is the third book in a series and to fully understand all that transpires it is best to read the stories in order.

Flicker to Fire is the third book in the Crimson Sash series by Amanda Marin. It is an original futuristic, dystopian, YA fantasy- with sci-fi elements, action, adventure, drama, intrigue, friendship, romance, politics, violence, social justice messages, human rights issues, emotion, and lots more.
This book follows on from the first two, with a bridging storyline and many recurring characters- so I really recommend reading the first two books before starting on this one, to get the best possible reading experience of this story.
I have followed the series from the beginning and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book to continue the adventure. So much has happened along the course of these three books- so I couldn’t help but get caught up in everything that transpired here and what the characters were going through. Amanda Marin certainly knows how to spin a riveting tale and held me enthralled the whole way through.
I don’t want to reveal any of the plot, past or present- just in case you haven’t read any of the books yet, as I really don’t want to give anything away that may spoil the story for you- except to say that if you love dystopian, YA, or future fantasy- then you probably won’t want to miss out on reading this book/series.
I wonder what Ms. Marin has planned for us next?

Thank you, Amanda Marin!

I enjoyed this book. This is the third book in this series which can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading all of them from the beginning. This is my favorite yet in this series. This is a well developed story that has characters that pulled me into the story right from the first chapter. This is an engaging story that I read in one sitting. I had no issues connecting to the characters as they brought the story to life. Neve and Micah are back in this story. Their story is full of hope and love. It does get a little dark in a few spots but the twists and turns kept me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what they would do next. There is a lot they go through in this story so I highly recommend reading it just to see. They are great characters that make a great story. This was a great rainy day read and I highly recommend it.

Beyond the broken wall, a fire has begun to burn …

Outside the refugee center in Kébec Village, the border wall separating the New Republic from the Nation continues to crumble. On one side, Neve Hall and Micah Ward are Sans Murs operatives, documenting cases of the Nation’s human rights violations as escapees arrive. On the other, Isla Pryce has begun a ruthless mission to purge the Nation of Sufferers who, like Micah, have been unfaithful to their vows.

Then she arrives: Blythe Thatcher, a mysterious young woman on the run from Isla’s vicious Inquisition Board. In Blythe, Neve sees a way to help Sans Murs further its cause—and rid the Nation of its callous Suffering system once and for all. But when the Nation uncovers their plan, the struggle that started as a flicker quickly turns to fire, and only Neve and Micah can extinguish the flame.

SYNOPSIS –

Seventeen-year-old Alina is the only imperfect person in a perfect world. On the surface, Pria is paradise: no hunger, no pain, not even death. Pria’s all-powerful ruler provides new thrills, constant pleasure, and eternal beauty. Every smile dazzles, every party delivers, and every young adult stops aging.

Except one.

Alina longs to fit in with her beautiful peers and dreams of connecting with the one boy who has been kind to her. But her flaws stand in the way. Fed up with her blunders and blemishes, her absence of friends, and her distant guardian, Alina seeks answers.

But behind Pria’s picture-perfect facade, unrest is growing, and the secrets Alina uncovers about her past are darker—and brighter—than she ever imagined.

A mysterious birth. A corrupt scientist who creates life merely to rule it. A parallel world where dissenters are sent to die. And an innocent Alina at the center of a deadly conspiracy. Now the only imperfect person must discover the courage to free herself and those she loves before she is silenced forever.

This was an enjoyable novel. Being a part of Gabriella’s journey to discovering her destiny was exciting to follow. Brandi Elledge’s story had some twists and turns that made for a very interesting read. It did end on a cliffhanger which made it even more interesting. I look forward to reading the next installment of Gabriella’s journey and reading more from Brandi Elledge.

Blessed: Academy of the SeraphBlessed: Academy of the Seraph by Brandi Elledge
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fantasy story woven around angels, demons, demis, immortals and magic, this book hooks the reader right from the first page. Many years ago, when a plague was causing human population to die, 15 archangels, who were not supposed to interfere, broke the law and saved few humans. These humans were considered blessed and possess special powers. Over centuries, as the bloodline progressed from one generation to another, the descendants still possessed certain special powers.
Hence, in the current world, it was mandatory that each human is tested whether they are blessed or not, at the age of 16.
One such blessed girl, Gabriella, despite being blessed, detests her super powers.
She is sent to one of the academies where the officials soon find out that she is blessed. Despising her situation, against her wishes, she agrees to get trained. she becomes an object of interest to her commanding officer. She makes few friends and many enemies in and outside the academy. As fate would have it, she finds herself in a pivotal position in an upcoming war as she tries to trace her own lineage.
It is a very fast paced book, with funny and interesting characters. I enjoyed it. I felt that the ending should have been more conclusive. But overall, a very enjoyable read.

Blessed: Academy of the Seraph
by Brandi Elledge

I was hooked from the start and I couldn’t put this book down until I finished reading it! Then I got left on a cliffhanger ugh!! Gabriella is going through so much in such a short amount of time. I am so glad that Gabriella made two really good friends because she needs people on her side especially since she didn’t really have anybody growing up in foster makes it hard to get close to anyone. The author did an exceptional job weaving an intriguing and entertaining story that I couldn’t get enough of. I cannot wait to read the next book. I highly recommend this book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book that I have read from this author and wow she now has a new fan. I normally don’t read young adults books but I’m so glad I did. I fell in love with the cover and then the amazing characters in this story. This is the first book of the Academy of Seraph. This book was a perfect way to start an addictive series. I could not put this book down until the end. It only took me a full day to devour this amazing story. I can’t wait and see what is next for these unforgettable characters.

Gabriela is not your normal seventeen year old. She was blessed by the angles and gave her some powers that she doesn’t even know how strong they are. Gabriela gets thrown into a new world that she doesn’t want to be in. She is now one of the students in the school for the gifted called the The Seraph Academy. Gabriela feels like she doesn’t belong but she quickly finds out that she is the best. She is shocked when she meets the commander of the school. He makes her feel things that she should not be feeling yet. Gabriela finally makes some friends but are they really her friends? Will Gabriela find out her true power or will someone want to take it from her?
