The fantasy elements are based in familiar mythology, but with twists and details that made it interesting and not like a history lesson ;) I loved the characters of Cora and Leo and instantly felt like I could relate to them and their goals. The plot is intense and moved swiftly along to the climax. The romantic moments are charged and yet sweet also. A great quick read that took my imagination to new places!(I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

    Shattered Worlds is giving me life. So far I have read Sound of Silence by Ali Winters and it has not disappointed. Ms. Winters has knocked it out of the ballpark as usual with her take on aliens. I look forward to reading the other stories by the other authors.

Raylinn, a teenager, doesn't quite know what to think when an alien race lands on Earth, but when she unexpectedly feels a connection with Jace, an alien, her feelings become more confusing, and when unexpected events begin to affect everyone, Raylinn doesn't know who she can trust. Raylinn has to go through some tough stuff, and she maintains her strength and composure through it all. I really enjoyed the romance in this story, it's really sweet and I enjoyed the connection between the two. There's some great suspense in this story, and I'm really looking forward to seeing more from Ali Winters in this world!

I received an ARC and fell in love.This is not one of those books you devour in one sitting; you will want to but it's so epic and well written that you'll find yourself savoring each moment, especially every moment involving Allucard (oh Allucard 😍my new book boyfriend😘 shhh don't tell my husband). I didn't ever want this book to end. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love, I fought demons and I found another family. I had to preorder this boxset before finishing Curse Breaker. I can only imagine what other gems are hidden within!

    I received an ARC of Audrey Grey's Cursebreaker, which will be included in this box set. I absolutely loved it. Grey has a major talent for world building and writing strong female characters. The story was exciting and I could hardly put this book down. Sarah J Maas better watch out because Audrey Grey is coming for your crown!

    Review for Curse Breaker (A Kingdom of Runes #1) by Audrey Grey.Curse Breaker by Audrey Grey is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read.

I knew it would be good just from the synopsis but it was very much better than I expected. The MC (Main Character) Haven draws you in from the very beginning, Her tale will clutch your heart with an unbreakable grip. Haven is a badass brilliant female warrior who is the companion Guard of the Prince of Penryth, Bellamy. She is indebted to him because he saved her from harm in the past. This lead to her pledging her life towards protecting him. On his Runeday, the day he's meant to be tested for magical powers that he might have (Though it's been a long long time since the Royal families has produced any magical heir). Unfortunately for him, due to some certain circumstances magic is revealed to have come from him. As is their custom in Penryth, any Royal offspring revealed to possess magic is then sent to the Shadow Queen for his or her magic to be extracted in mostly painful ways. The Shadow Queen is a blight upon the mortal lands because due to betrayal from the hands of a mortal, She casts a terrible curse on all mortals lands that greatly decreased their numbers and left their empires in ruin. The Shadow Queen rules the Netherworld (Which Bell is subsequently taken to after being abducted by the Shadow Lord (The Queen's Son-In-Law) and his goons) with her Shadowlings (Which are basically monstrous shadows made flesh, Think of all the worst possible monsters a twisted mind could conjure). Haven determined to save her Prince no matter what, embarks on a quest to save him from certain death. Her path aligns with that of an immortal Sun Lord (Archeron who is bound to the king and tasked by the king to find his son) who wields light magic and his band of merry men/women (OK they're technically more awesome than that and are also immortals with various powers that could smite dozens of villages). She often clashes with Archie (I LOVE calling him that) because of their VERY different point of views. She's impulsive and stubborn while he's more cautious, Oh and there's the fact that he harbors some hatred towards mortals. These two have chemistry that's off the charts, their banters are wildly amusing and their relationship blossoms in many intriguing ways. Who wouldn't love a guy that says this:“Don’t let anyone dim your fire. Instead, burn and burn like the sun, like you were meant to, until you set the world ablaze.”During the course of their perilous journey, a lot of revelations are made. One of the most important being Haven having magic and not just any magic but a combination of both dark and light. Mastering these peculiar powers of hers might just be the key to figuring out a way to break the Curse and freeing Bell from the clutch of the menacing Shadow Queen. Haven is seriously one of the best characters I've EVER (and I really mean that) read about. Yes she can be impulsive and a little bit crazy sometimes but that's part of who she is and she has so many other great qualities that just makes me love her. There's also the fact that she's crazily skilled with her majestic bow and arrows and she's pretty slick with a knife too. Her devotion towards Bellamy and her goodness after the terrible things she went through as a child are also admirable traits she has. The mystery of exactly who she is and what exactly she can do is one that greatly excited me and slowly unveiling the web surrounding it was very satisfying. Bell is also not to be left out, He also has a similarly intriguing journey though not as crazy as Haven's but no less dangerous combined with the fact that his days were literally numbered. He is dumped in Spirefall (The nasty lair of the Shadow Queen and no I will not call that monstrous nightmare inducing hulking structure Castle.) after his capture. He befriends a hooded creature (Who is half human and half reptilian (a doing of the villainous Shadow Queen Morgryth) and the very mortal prince who made Morgryth be brutal) there due to a tentative connection they seem to share. Their friendship blossoms into love and many interesting details about the past were revealed. Their relationship is literally a beauty and the beast situation but the live between the two guys is so deep and I liked the little twists here and there. The writing of this book is just so phenomenal and lush, the words are so brilliantly crafted it all flows smoothly. The creativity and ingenuity of the author is to be commended. The worldbuilding is also a big deal, from the mortal lands of Eritrayia to the Ruinlands/The Shadow Kingdom/Netherworld to Effendier, Solaris, Asharia etc. The world is one big globe but at no point does it feel overstuffed, the reader will eased into it slowly and gently. The magic in the book is so good and very original, I enjoyed every single aspect of it. There are so many characters everyone can relate to, One of the strengths of the book is its diverse set of characters. The cast is long so I can't tell about all of them but I assure you they ARE awesome. The ending was thankfully not a dreadful cliffhanger but it's excitingly explosive in a way that leaves me excited for what's next for Haven and the family (Yup these guys are family to me especially after what we've gone through). Audrey Grey is a genius storyteller that has woven a witty tale of magic, adventure, action, romance and danger. I recommend Curse Breaker to anyone looking for that next great read, you won't be disappointed.P.S: That cover is simply divine.P.P.S: I just want to say I feel really passionate about this book if you can't tell from my ridiculous rambling above, I truly believe there are no words I can use to do justice for just how good this book is.P.P.P.S: Can't wait to read other books in this box set.

Clara, an adept Tinker, independent and feisty, isn't quite sure what to make of exuberant Gordy: he who is probably only quiet when asleep, and perhaps not even then. There's conspiracy afoot, secrets to uncover and intriguing steampunk devices to build. Thoroughly enjoyed this story set in an alternate history where Queen Victoria never existed and England is currently at war with Scotland. Haye is extremely adept at leading a reader into false assumptions and then takes great delight in pulling the rug out from beneath one's feet, and I find myself with not a leg to stand on, my assumption going down in a spiralling display of alarm. But how I do enjoy the twists!Review of:Mistress GrimmJane Redd (Heather B. Moore)A unique premise wonderfully told. It appears the Grim Reaper is not quite who mythology would have us believe. World building of the Underworld is well structured and the characters enjoyable. Sweet tale, deftly written.

It's a great read to hold me over until the release of book three, DOMINION, but it can also be enjoyed even if you haven't read the LIFE AFTER series before. It did take me just a little bit to get into, which was probably just me getting used to Logan's POV. But it really didn't take long before I was reading as fast as I could and then being super sad because it ended.

Anyways, while some may see this novella as a 0.5 to the series (and rightly so, since most of its contents introduce us to things and situations that happened previously to Huntress, the first book in the series) it's better for it to be read as a 2.5, since it answers so many questions that readers been having from the two previous books, while giving us a deeper understanding of said male, brooding character that we've come to love *starry eyed look* + *swoon*Looking forward to reading the rest 20+ stories!

    This review is for Mistress Grim. It's an intriguing novella (around 100 pages long). The story explores a unique twist on the Grim Reaper myth. Cora finds herself needing to take her father's place to escort a soul to judgement. She has never done this before and was expecting her father to be able to be with her. While in the earth realm she meets Leo, a prince returning from war. She is supposed to be collecting his father's soul but things don't go quite as she expects them to...
