Book Review

Title: Pure Healing

Author: Aja James

Genre: Paranormal/Romance/Action

Rating: ****

Review: The prologue of Pure Healing was great, we meet Sophia Victoria St. James starting at Harvard University and she just happens to be the Queen of the Pure Ones and introduces us to their race and their cardinal rule which is if a Pure One falls in love and has sex with anyone who isn’t their Eternal Mate, they die a slow, excruciating death within thirty days, really cool premise by the way. We also get to meet Valerius Marcus Ambrosiua one of Sophia’s Elite guard and part of the Royal Zodiac along with the healer Rain who I believe is Val’s mate given the way they reacted to each other at their first meeting teen years before when Sophia was only a child. Sophia also has the ability to sense Pure Ones and read the intentions of most people.

Review: The opening to Nemo Rising was very gripping and had a real Moby Dick feel to it.

When then jump forward to the White House where Ulysses S. Grant and John Duncan have discussed this sinking of several ships and the apparent monster that has been destroying them.

From Within The Light by Clemy Warner-Thompson Review

Book Review

Title: From Within the Light

Author: Clemy Warner-Thompson

Genre: YA/Fantasy/Paranormal

Rating: ****

Review: In the prologue of From Within the Light we are introduced the Cassie and Kale as they try to escape men who are hunting them and for a while they succeed until they hit a dead end, and just when it seems like Cassie is going to sacrifice her life for his, he takes the blow. I am not sure how the prologue fits into the rest of the story, but I am sure it will become clear very soon. We join Cassie on a not so day as she prepares for college where she is studying for her final exams. We learn that her brother Dillen attends the same college as a first-year student, her mother Sandra is a nurse and her father Bryan is on the police force and had to leave regularly and every time he does it really upsets Cassie, because of this it seems like Cassie doesn’t have a great relationship with either of her parents.

Book Review

Title: Killing Stalking & Killing Stalking Season 2

Author: Koogi

Genre: Manhwa

Rating: *****

Review: So, I have been a huge otaku for years, I got into manga when I was around 12 or 13, this was because I had an older cousin who was really into manga and taught me how to read them i.e. back to front and right to left and I was hooked. So being an active member of the manga and anime communities when I saw the hype and controversy surrounding Killing Stalking, which is a manhwa. (Manhwa is s the general Korean term for comics and print cartoons) so naturally I had to read it. The problem I had was all the yaoi (yaoi is a difficult term to explain as shounen-ai is guy x guy love in general. Yaoi usually tends to refer to things that are more…explicit) I had read up until this manhwa has been light and fluffy refer to Junjou Romantica and Sekai ichi Hatsukoi.

Would You Rather Book Tag

So I found this tag here and thought I’d give it a go, so without further ado…

Would you rather…

1. Read only trilogies or stand alones?

I would have to say trilogies because some of my favourite books are part of trilogies – although some are being extended – like The Illuminae Files, Nevernight Chronciles, The Chemical Garden trilogy and so many more.

Here come the Trolls by Ron Butlin & James Hutcheson

Book Review

Title: Here come the Trolls

Author: Ron Butlin & James Hutcheson

Genre: Children’s/Picture Book

Rating: *****

Review: Much like my review of Day of the Trolls by the same authors, this review is going to be a lot shorter than the ones I usually write. Here come the Trolls has a very similar feel to the Day of the Trolls as the trolls aren’t wanted around humans as they take over any space they can fit into.

Book Review

Title: Day of the Trolls

Author: Ron Butlin & James Hutcheson

Genre: Children’s/Picture Book

Rating: *****

Review: As this is a children’s picture book my review will be a lot shorter than the ones I usually write. I really like the concept of Day of the Trolls as it is full of naughty trolls celebrating troll day but terrorising people and just getting up to some general mischief, until they are treated the same way they have treated the human all day. The trolls soon come to realise that being naughty and mischievous isn’t all that great and want to do it over again.
