The Elemental Trial by J.A. Armitage & Claire Luana

The Elemental Trial by J.A. Armitage

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Whoa buddy this race is really getting interesting now!! We pick up right after the first trial ended where they get a brief break to rest and recover before the second trial starts. This leads to some more secrets, roaming, and surprises just in time for the second trial. Only they have a twist where they have to work with a second team during this part with the team assignments changing after each checkpoint. This makes things quite interesting after everything that went down last time. you are never going to be able to guess what will be coming from page to page. Great addition to this amazing series! I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

After receiving I don't know how many recommendations for me to try this series I was finally able to work it into my reading schedule. Now I totally understand why all the algorithms thought I needed to. Mercy is one fantastic main character. She kicks some butt all on her own even when everyone is underestimating her. The Fae have came out to the world for the most but all other forms of supernatural are still in hiding. Mercy is a Walker that can turn into a coyote that runs a car shop where she truly has some skills. She is minding her own business when trouble runs into her making it necessary for her to figure out what is going and exactly who is behind it. Full of fantastic characters for you to both love and hate. incredible world building that will really suck you in quick. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

Blog Tour & Giveaway for Birth of the Bacchae by Stephanie Mirro

Birth of the Bacchae
Immortal Relics Book 1
by Stephanie Mirro
Genre: Urban Fantasy 
"Vampires, Immortals, Bacchae—they’re all the same. The name may change, but their appetites never do."

Ever since archaeology student Serafina Finch found an ancient Roman amulet on a dig in Italy, she's been having dreams. Strange dreams that leave her with an eerie sense of foreboding. But between a busy college schedule and a boyfriend she's hoping to marry, she doesn't have time for strange.

Then a mysterious cult takes an obsessive interest in the artifact. Serafina finds her life in chaos as she's thrown into the supernatural world, where Immortals and witches alike claim ownership of the amulet. Her amulet.

As her connection to the amulet grows, she discovers a dark secret about her past. Serafina realizes she must protect the powerful relic at all costs--even if it means losing one of the people she loves most.

Invisible. Powerful. Immortal. We are Bacchae.”

BIRTH OF THE BACCHAE is a New Adult Urban Fantasy novel exploring the origins of vampire lore in a modern setting. Where do the stories come from? How were vampires created? Do they still exist today?
Stephanie Mirro's lifelong love of ancient mythology led to majoring in the Classics in college, which wasn't quite as much fun as writing her own mythology stories as she did as a child. But that education, combined with an overactive imagination and being an avid fantasy reader, resulted in a writing career.

Starting her days with coffee and ending them with wine means Stephanie can usually be found juggling household chores, keeping the kids alive, and trying to write, edit, publish, and market the stories that haunt her dreams.

Born and raised in Southern Arizona, Stephanie now resides in Northern Virginia with her husband, two kids, and two furbabies. This thing called "seasons" is still magical.

Author Bio:
I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Hunting the Beast by Anna Santos

book cover

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Talk about a remake of Beauty and the Beast! This is definitely a new twist yet still fun at the same time. We get a girl who loses her father to a werewolf. Her town is afraid of them and hunts them while a strange Queen runs things her way. Belle makes it her goal to kill this vicious beast so she undergoes training to do just that. unfortunately she is attacked her first night out which changes things for her forever. She meets her beast as well as all of our other beloved characters and still manages to save the day in the end. The mentions of other stories was quite fun as well. They were almost like little Easter eggs worked in. A fun read for fans of fairy tale remakes. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

A Fine Necromance by Lidiya Foxglove

A Fine Necromance by Lidiya Foxglove

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Wow oh wow I so did not see any of this coming!! After the events of the last book there is a new headmaster as well as quite a few new teachers. Coming with them is the attitude that anything not Ethereal needs to be purified using an untested spell that seems to have come from nowhere. This leads to all kinds of harassment, bullying, surprises, and a whole lot more. This leads all to the explosive ending that will make you wish you had the next book right now!! Total must read for fans of paranormal academy books. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
