Rain of Ash by Gwen Mitchell is an exciting and fast paced urban fantasy. There is so much going on in this book. If you are looking for a book like City of Bones that has a little bit of everything, don’t look any further because you have found it. This book is packed full of demons, witches, immortals, reincarnation, and lots of soulmates. There is pain, sacrifice, love, and bloodshed. Briana thinks she is cursed and she fights these visions that she keeps having. She thought she was done with her powers when she chose to have them bound at 17. When her gandmother and younger sister turn up dead, Briana knows that she has to go back.

I found myself being extremely captivated by this book. I was drawn in right away with its high pace story line. The narrator easily kept my attention but was a little slow. I found myself speeding up the audiobook a bit. I really enjoyed how the story was narrated by many points of view. I thought this brought even more to the story because I got to know what was happening all the time. That ending! You don’t want to miss this book! Definitely check it out. I give Rain of Ash four out of five stars.

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious.

“Unhinged” by A.G. Howard was a dark and twisted sequel to “Splintered.” “Unhinged” picks up several months after “Splintered” ended. Alyssa is trying to figure out her relationship with Jeb but it is a bit difficult because he doesn’t remember any of their time in Wonderland. When Morpheus starts showing up in her dreams again, Alyssa wonders if something is up. Now that Wonderland is in danger again, Alyssa doesn’t want to go back but she is afraid that she must if she is to say her beloved second home.

I really did like “Unhinged.” I felt like I really got know both Alyssa and Morpheus better in this book. I think “Unhinged” focuses a lot on Morpheus and who he is. I really liked getting to know Morpheus better. I think it all sequels where similar to this one then I would enjoy them a whole lot more. I like when I get to know the characters better. I don’t just want to see one side of them but all the sides that make the character. I think Howard did a great job with this one because I truly got to see all sides of these characters.

The biggest complaint that I have is also why it made it so good. The love triangle was getting a little out of hand in “Unhinged.” I also think this is why it made the book good because you really got to know how each character felt about the other one. The back and forth between whom Alyssa should love was really getting old. Then when there is a loop-hole everything becomes a huge mess.

The visual art in this story is amazing. Howard paints such a beautiful Wonderland. It is creepy and sinister but beautiful none the less. I fell in love with it right away. I still think this is one of my favorite “Alice in Wonderland” retellings. I am really looking forward to reading “Ensnared” and seeing how it all ends.

When Lyric Walker was 14 years old, her life was turned upside down when she witnessed a world-changing event - the arrival of the Triton, a five-nation race of warrior merpeople who walked out of the sea and camped on the beaches of modern-day Coney Island. Suddenly her neighborhood was home to a new minority group numbering in the tens of thousands. But the Triton's arrival also revealed a shocking family secret: Her own mother was a mermaid.

I loved “Undertow” by Michael Buckley. Parts of this book reminded me a lot of the tv show that played on CW “Starcrossed.” Instead of Aliens, we are faced with some sort of fish creatures called the Alpha. Everything has changed in Coney Island.

Lyric Walker is a 16-year-old girl who used to be a wild child. She used to get herself into all kind of trouble but for the last several years she has just been lying low. She shows up to school when she is supposed too and she keeps her head down low. The last thing Lyric walker wants to do is cause any trouble.

Now it is the first day of school that everyone has been waiting for. There are protesters lining the streets because today is the day that six Alpha will join the school with the human kids. No one likes this idea, but the government is wanting to try to see what happens. Lyric goes to school like she is supposed too and well a fight breaks out in one of her classes. Instead of letting the students keep on fighting each other Lyric steps in to try to stop the fight, resulting in everyone getting into trouble.

Then the principal, Doyle, tells Lyric that she is going to help him with a special project or he will put her in lock up. Come to find out this special project is for her to meet with Fathom, the prince of the Alpha, every day to help him learn the ways of humans. Of course Lyric objected but she ended up having to do it anyway. Lyric starts teaching Fathom an even though she is reluctant about it she starts to enjoy their little visits. Everything in Coney Island is about to change and humans aren’t ready for it.

I really liked Lyric Walker’s character. Lyric used to be this extremely selfish girl and now she is obeying her parents and lying low to protect her family. She also knows when to stick up for others because it isn’t fair for them to be treated badly. A lot of people call Lyric names and she still holds her head high. She still does her assignment and she still tries to find a way to protect her family including her friends. Life isn’t easy for Lyric but she is willing to do the best that she can do.

I really liked this story because it kept me engrossed the entire time. I listened to the audio-book and I think that Jennifer Grace did a fantastic job of narrating. I think she does a great job of telling the story because she puts so much heart into the story. I love that she does voices and she makes the reader feel like they are a part of the story not just listening to it. This is the first book that I have read by Michael Buckley and I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading book two of the “Undertow” trilogy.

“Falling Kingdoms” by Morgan Rhodes was our second book club pick. I actually ended up listening to the audiobook more than reading the book itself. I will cover the audiobook towards the end because I have thoughts on that too.

I feel like I read this a bit late. I think if I would have read this when it came out, I probably would have been more impressed. Since I Read this years later, I feel like there is a lot better fantasy books out there. With that being said, I don’t think it was a bad book, just not the greatest.

I am always looking for some good fantasy books. I read a lot of dystopian but I like to mix it up with some fantasy and contemporary too. I have a desire to keep myself rounded. With this being my newest fantasy try I was wishing for more fantasy elements and less drama.

What I liked:

I love that two of the leads are women. I tend to find that a lot of fantasy books have male leads, so I do like when the genre gets mixed up a bit and there are female leads.
I love the cover. I do think this should count for something.
I am intrigued by the world. I don’t think the world building was terrific but I am very curious about it.
Magic. I want to know more.
What I disliked:

Why are there so many characters? I feel like “Falling Kingdoms” had way too many characters. I had a hard time trying to keep up with everyone. I feel like it didn’t give the reader enough time to get to know the characters.
So many different plots and sub-plots. I feel like this book had a lot of things going on. I didn’t know what to focus on. I was listening to the audiobook and I finally had to give up on keeping track of the kingdoms, so that way I could just try to keep track of the characters. It felt like every character had its own plot and several sub-plots. I think there is way too much going on.
The magic was confusing and not focused on much. I really want to know more. I hope it develops better.
All the blackmailing. I have never read a book with so much blackmail. Don’t the characters have better things to do?
Wrap up:

I am interested in the series enough to read the next one. I really hope that the story line improves because I am not impressed at this point in time. I feel like “Falling Kingdoms” is no where near as good as some of the other fantasy stories out there. Like I said, I am interested in finding out what happens next, so it does have that going for it.

The audiobook was really confusing in the beginning. I feel like I finally got a hang of it a few chapters in but it was very hard to keep track of all the characters and kingdoms on the audiobook.

Don't call them heroes. But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart. Take Ethan, aka Scam. He's got a voice inside him that'll say whatever you want to hear, whether it's true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn't - like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren't exactly best friends these days.

I read “Zeroes” by Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti back in February and I was trying to find my review for a friend and found out that I didn’t have one. I felt that I need to remedy this and get my thoughts out there for the world to see.

“Zeroes” was a really good book. I didn’t know much about Zeroes. I found out that Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti were doing an event at my local bookstore and wanted to go. Of course I had my ARC and bought a copy to get signed for my sister. I believe this was back in October. I found out a little about the book then. I was fairly intrigued to read this story.

One thing I love about the three authors writing this story together is the fact that you really can’t tell who wrote what part. I think that is really great. It looks or is completely seamless. I thought Westerfeld, Lanagan, and Biancotti did a great job writing. The story was very though out and fun to read.

“Every Power Has A Price”

That right there is a very powerful statement. This statement made me so curious. I really wanted to know what would be going on in this novel. This story follows six teenagers. Each of these teenagers has some kind of superpower. Each power is different. Some powers will affect everyone and other powers will only affect one person when they are used. The one thing these teenagers have in common is they were all born in the year 2000. The call themselves the Zeroes. A bit of a spin-off of Heroes. They have many missions to learn about their powers or at least they used too. The split up the previous summer over a big fight.

These kids don’t want to be heroes at all. They just want to be themselves and figure out how these powers work for them. One thing I really loved about these characters is the fact that when one of their own was in trouble, they came to the rescue. Even though there was a huge fight and most of them hadn’t talked at all. There is a large cast of main characters. It was a lot of fun getting to see each perspective.

I really enjoyed this novel a lot. I am looking forward to seeing what happens in book two. This story is just about kids who have superpowers. It is about growing up, becoming your own person, dealing with friendships, taking care of one’s family, and many more deep subjects. I really like how the subjects were tackled because I didn’t feel like I was being educated but I was at the same time. This is definitely a fun book that I think everyone should read.

“Beastly Bones” by William Ritter was a great sequel to “Jackaby.” In “Jackaby,” we were able to meet some fabulous characters. I am excited to get to visit these characters again.

What I didn’t like:

Not as much sleuthing
Relationship are under-developed
The Sleuthing:

Jackaby and Miss Rook didn’t do as much sleuthing as the first book. The mystery wasn’t as predictable as the first book either but their didn’t seem to be very many clues to follow up on this time around. I feel like the investigation itself was not very exciting.

Relationships are under-developed:

The relationships between each character are very under-developed. I feel like each relationship should have some form of improvement or depth. I want to see Jackaby and Miss Rook’s relationship grow. Maybe not romantically but as friends. It would have been nice to see Charlie and Miss Rook’s relationship become more romantic.

What I did like:

Writing
Characters
Plot
The Writing:

I love Ritter’s writing. the pace is great and it is light and lovely. The conversations are hilarious yet informative. The writing is very quirky and I think it fits the time period extremely well.

Characters:

These group of characters are incredibly fun. I’ve fallen in love with them. Abby Rook has created her won little spot in my heart. i want this girl to succeed. She is really becoming her own. Rook’s character is growing and developing and I can’t wait to see how her future turns out. Jackaby is quirky and amazing. I love how peculiar he is. Sometimes Jackaby is hard to read but I feel like that is part of his great character. There were also some new characters int he story. I enjoyed all the characters a lot.

Plot:

The plot is very entertaining. i was completely engrossed in the story. the plot was less predictable. There wasn’t much sleuthing, as I mentioned earlier but I reall liked that I wasn’t able to peg everything right away.

I jumped right back into Abigail and Jackaby’s lives. New murders take Jackaby and Abigail out to a farm. At this farm there is a dig site of bones that have been found. Miss Rook being a paleontologist is excited to go check out this dig. I love that I got to experience Abby’s excitement when it came to the fossils and bones.

Wrap Up:

I love that William Ritter has created a paranormal series that feature all different kind of creatures. I am in love with these characters and can’t get enough of them.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer is a wonderful retelling. Heartless is not a traditional retelling though. It is more of a prequel that is inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

Someone asked me what villian I thought was the most misunderstood and my answer is the Queen of Hearts. Then they asked me why I thought the Queen of Hearts is misunderstood. Talking to this person, they thought if I wrote a blog post about it to explain, then I could share why I think that.

My answer is…read Heartless and you have my answer right there. I hadn’t read Heartless at the time of this discussion, but I knew it would be out soon. Meyer does a wonderful job giving the Queen of Hearts a backstory. This backstory explains why I think the Queen of Hearts is misunderstood.

Cath loves to bake. She and her best friend Mary Ann want to open up a bakery together. Cath’s parents want to marry her off to the King of Hearts. I really enjoyed getting to know Cath. her character is written so good. She is whimsical and fun but Cath isn’t’ always the smartest tool in the shed. Cath falls in love, but not with the King. She looks at her life as if it is falling apart because her parents are relentless about marrying the King.

I felt really bad for Cath. She has dreams and goals that keep getting crushed. She just wants to live her own life. I think everyone can relate to her. Cath wants to find true love and be incredibly happy. This story brings us back to the time of were woman should be seen and not heard. who doesn’t love a forbidden love story?

The ending of Heartless is heartbreaking. I think it explains the backstory of the Queen of Hearts perfectly. This book explains perfectly why I think the Queen of Hearts is misunderstood. I really liked Heartless and I am excited to add it to my Alice collection.

Roar by Cora Carmack is amazing. I’ve been a fan of Carmack’s for awhile and she writes some of my favorite new adult books. Roar is Carmack’s first young adult novel and she definitely launched with a bang!

Aurora is the princess of Caelira. She only wishes she was capable of the power her mom has. Instead of protecting her Kingdom, Aurora has to hide during the storm attacks so no one will know that she does not have the power that a princess of Caelira should have. Now Aurora’s mother is trying to marry her off to Cassius, a prince from another land. Cassius has his own devious plans. When Aurora begins to catch on and she follows him to a place no prince or princess should go…her life changes. That is where Roar’s adventure begins.

Carmack’s plot is grand. She writes it oh so well. The reader doesn’t get the whole plot at once which is something that I really like. We get a slow reveal as the story continues on so the reader gets to feel some suspense and anticipation. This story and the characters grip your attention and draws you into this beautiful world. Oh Course, Carmack leaves you wanting more!

One thing I absolutely love about this story is the uniqueness. Storms have personalities and hearts. People fight these storms because they are deadly. I really liked the Elemental power and the magic that is in this story.

The storm hunters are amazing. I love this ban of misfits. They care about each other even when it is hard to show it. It truly is something to have a group of people that have your back. Even if they are tough on each other, they still take the time to teach.

The writing is amazing. The characters are written extremely well. I feel like you can’t ask for a better book. So far there are no love triangles but there is at least two swoon worthy men. Aurora/Roar is one of the best female characters ever. I am really looking forward to book two.
