BOOK INFORMATION

The Warrior Maiden (Hagenheim #9)

by Melanie Dickerson

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Release Date: February 5th 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Romance, Retellings, Christian Fiction

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson comes a fresh reimagining of the classic Mulan tale.

Mulan isn’t afraid to pretend to be a son and assume her father’s soldier duties in war. But what happens when the handsome son of a duke discovers her secret?

Mulan is trying to resign herself to marrying the village butcher for the good of her family, but her adventurous spirit just can’t stand the thought. At the last minute, she pretends to be the son her father never had, assumes his duties as a soldier, and rides off to join the fight to protect the castle of her liege lord’s ally from the besieging Teutonic Knights.

Wolfgang and his brother Steffan leave Hagenheim with several other soldiers to help their father’s ally in Poland. When they arrive, Wolfgang is exasperated by the young soldier Mikolai who seems to either always be one step away from disaster . . . or showing Wolfgang up in embarrassing ways.

When Wolfgang discovers his former rival and reluctant friend Mikolai is actually a girl, he is determined to protect her. But battle is a dangerous place where anything can happen—and usually does.

When Mulan receives word that her mother has been accused of practicing witchcraft through her healing herbs and skills, Mulan’s only thought is of defending her. Will she be able to trust Wolfgang to help? Or will sacrificing her own life be the only way to save her mother?

Review

The Warrior Maiden is a story about bravery, courage, love and faith. Mulan’s father, Mikolai was a soldier and until and unless someone took his place in the battle, Mulan and her mother would be thrown out of their house. As Mikolai had no son she had to join in instead and pretended to be man as it wasn’t allowed in those times for a woman to fight. On the other hand Wolfgang is a son of a Duke who is been sent to fight for the first time in his life along with his rebellious brother.

I loved Mulan’s character, our brave heroine, the warrior maiden. She beat the odds, ignored the objections and proved herself a worthy soldier. She is a perfect example of a strong, independent and brave woman. She is woman that I definitely inspire to be. Though it is not a era of battle between kingdoms but the spirit that she embodies is something we should all imbibe in ourselves. Apart from her, I absolutely loved our hero’s character Wolfgang, a man who fought with all his power even when he was injured and very weak. His compassion, strength, courage and in total his whole character will impress anyone who would read this book.

The Warrior Maiden is filled with action and suspense and I actually would have finished the book in one sitting if I could have managed the time, the plot was just so engaging. The Warrior Maiden keeps you at the edge of the seat throughout with ample amount of twists, turns and thrills arriving as the story advances.

Apart from all the action on the battlefield, their is a sweet love story going on between Wolfgang and Mulan. It is really beautiful, sweet and heartwarming.

This book is just perfect for anyone who loves historical fiction and strong heroines. So if you’re one of them then I suggest you should go and order yourself a copy of The Warrior Maiden right now and I hope you would enjoy it as much as I did.

QUOTES

“Mulan held her head high, but Wolfgang may have been the only one to notice that she set her hand on the table, as if to steady herself. As she calmly turned to look at the men cheering for her, she could have easily been a queen observing her subjects, that ever-so-faint smile on her lips. He was so proud of her. But an uneasy tightening in his chest alerted him to some unwelcome emotion. He wished they were alone together in a tree, talking about their childhoods or fighting side by side.

“Her father had probably asked Mother to marry him in just such a feeble, unromantic manner as this. And she would not be trapped in that kind of marriage, no matter how handsome the man was or how much she loved him.

“I . . .” Was it because she loved Wolfgang too much to let him get killed for her? That was part of it, but it was more than that. Even though he’d proven himself, part of her still didn’t trust him. Was she imagining that all men, even Wolfgang, would hurt her, like her father did? She’d risked her own life so many times in battle. She’d always taken responsibility and never asked anyone for help. She had to do it herself. Was that wrong? Never to let anyone help her?”

Synopsis:

Dark Paradise by Gene Desrochers

Boise Montague’s life in Los Angeles has fallen apart. After his wife dies, he returns to the tiny island where he grew up. Unfortunately, coming home doesn’t bring him the peace he’s looking for. Things have changed drastically since his last visit. The island has moved on and so have the people he once knew. When Boise tries to find the one friend he thinks he can count on to be there for him, he’s confronted with another death. A murder. A murder that the police did not think important enough to investigate thoroughly. Boise wants answers. He enlists a local reporter named Dana, who has theories of her own, to help him dig deeper. With not much left to lose, a bone to pick with the justice system, and a relentless partner, Boise sets out to do what the police would not: solve the murder of Roger Black. The island of St. Thomas is a gleaming tropical paradise. Welcome to the Caribbean, where murder is as common as sunshine.

Review

Dark Paradise is an engaging thriller filled with mystery, suspense, adventure and some badass characters.

In Dark Paradise there are not one but two mysteries, one about a 15 yr girl and another about Boise’s old friend Roger which intensified the suspense and tension two fold. With each passing page of the novel we get more and more absorbed in the story and the mysteries. We meet new characters, learn new secrets and encounter a lot of twists and turns on the way.

I really enjoyed reading Dark Paradise not only for the plot but also for Boise and Dana. They are two awesome characters. Strong willed, brave and people who are not ready to back down from a fight even when their lives were at risk. Apart from Bosie and Dana, I also liked certain small characters like Ms Salas, even though she had only a brief presence in the book, but her character kind of made a mark on me.

Concluding the my review of Dark Paradise I would say that if you love mystery then you should definitely go forward and order yourself a copy. I think this book will be a great addition to your shelf.

Read an excerpt:

Behind me, the door I’d entered through opened. A very tan redhead showing signs of aging from many days spent in the sun entered carrying a laptop bag and shouldering a camera. A red Carnegie Mellon University baseball cap that looked like it had been run over by a garbage truck covered part of her tough, but beautiful face. She looked me over like I was a mongrel who’d wandered in begging for table scraps.

“You need something?” She dropped her stuff down on the cushioned chair next to the counter.

“Uh, yes, I wondered if I could get some clippings or microfilm or copies or whatever it is newspapers give for issues two to eight years old. Are they digitized yet?” I stammered.

“Seriously, what do you want?” She pulled her Ray-Bans off and the gray-blue of her eyes stunned me for a moment. Using her sunglasses, she tapped my shoulder. “Hello?”

The faint odor of cigarette smoke assaulted me when she got close.

“Clippings, you know, news from the past,” I said.

As she slipped the glasses into a case from her purse she said, “Yes, but you implied that something here was digitized.” She pursed her thin lips. “This newspaper went online three years ago, so, the last three years are available online in the archives section if you buy a subscription. You a subscriber?”

“I don’t have a subscription,” I said defensively.

“Figures. This is why my job is constantly in danger. Everyone expects news for free.” Her fine hair moved in a blur as she shook her head derisively while she rummaged for something in her bag.

“Hey, I’m happy to buy a subscription. I support journalism,” I said. It sounded lame.

We both flinched as a thunderous banging rang through the room as something or someone hit the other side of a door to my left.

She threw her hands up, exclaiming, “Not again!”

“What? What’s that?” I said.

“Calling the cops,” she sang out. “They said they’re gonna start charging us if this happened again,” she whispered.

Another, more urgent banging erupted through the room. The reporter had her cell out.

“Wait,” I said. “Is it really that dangerous?”

“No, just annoying.” She pressed a button on her phone. “You believe this? Now I’m on hold. I could probably walk over to the police station faster. He’ll probably take a dump on the floor by the time we get back.”

My Sweet Friend: Book Review

MY SWEET FRIEND

By H.A. Leuschel

Genre: Physiological Fiction

SYNOPSIS
A stand-alone novella from the author of Manipulated Lives
A perfect friend … or a perfect impostor?
Alexa is an energetic and charismatic professional and the new member of a Parisian PR company where she quickly befriends her colleagues Rosie and Jack. She brings a much-needed breath of fresh air into the office and ambitiously throws herself into her new job and friendships.
But is Alexa all she claims to be?
As her life intertwines with Rosie and Jack’s, they must all decide what separates truth from fiction. Will the stories that unfold unite or divide them? Can first impressions ever be trusted?
In this original novella, H.A. Leuschel evokes the powerful hold of appearances and what a person is prepared to do to keep up the facade. If you like thought-provoking and compelling reads with intriguing characters, My Sweet Friend is for you.

REVIEW
MY SWEET FRIEND is a totally mind boggling and a thought provoking read.

It is story about lies, trust, deceit, manipulation, friendship and destruction. My Sweet Friend is a complete suspense packed novella from the very first page and once you have this novella in your hand you can not put it down because the story is juat so engaging.

I won’t extend this review more or I feel I might reveal details that might spoil your read. So summing up my thoughts, I would say My Sweet Friend is a gripping physiological fiction novella which is a must read for all fans of this genre.

The Hidden Cities Blog tour: Book Review

Hello guys, welcome to my spot for The Hidden Cities blog tour. For my spot I am going to review the fourth book in The Hidden Cities, The Shadow Men.

Mind the Gap
The Hidden Cities Book 1
by Christopher Golden & Tim Lebbon
Genre: Dark Urban Fantasy Thriller
“The super-fast pacing and creepy touches give this teen adventure plenty
of character.”—

Publishers Weekly
Returning to her home in London, teen Jasmine Towne realizes just how long
she’s been training for the moment she would be on her own. Her
paranoid mother’s last words, scrawled in her own blood, demand her
action: JAZZ HIDE FOREVER. In this moment, the strange men who have
always hung around her family’s life—whom her mother called the
Uncles—become starkly sinister. And they’re on her trail.
Seeking cover in the Underground, Jazz slips through a mysterious gate, down
tunnels, and seemingly through time. Inside an abandoned city of bomb
shelters and forgotten Tube stations, she finds temporary refuge with
a gang of petty thieves. Flashes of the past, spectral and haunting,
share the tunnels…with no regard for the living. For how long can
Jazz hide from the terrors of both her worlds?
The Map of Moments
The Hidden Cities Book 2
To what lengths would you go to undo the pain of the past?
“Golden and Lebbon have far outstripped their past efforts with this
wonderfully creepy thriller of a ghost story.”
Publishers Weekly starred review
“Golden and Lebbon vividly evoke the rich, enduring character of New Orleans,
as well as spinning a compelling fantasy yarn that builds momentum as
Max works his way through the city’s history.” —

Booklist

Max Corbett has returned to New Orleans for the funeral of his former
girlfriend, Gabrielle Doucette, but between the destruction wrought
by Hurricane Katrina and the devastation of his ruined relationship,
the city feels alien.
At Gabrielle’s graveside, Max meets Ray. Over a bottle of bourbon in a
dive bar, the two discuss Gabrielle’s unique connection to the city.
Ray suggests that this connection might mean her tragic death is not
truly her end. And he happens to know a real magic practitioner—not
some Bourbon Street phony—who could open a window to the past and
send a warning to Gabrielle. Maybe Max can even deliver the warning
in person? Ray offers him a cheap map and says the process is simple.
Follow the charted moments to build up a little bit of magical clout
and then find the man with the gift.
Surging with liquid courage, Max takes the ludicrous tourist map and sets
off. But it turns out this quest is not so easy. When Max enters the
First Moment, he is drawn into the fabric of history to witness dark
and violent periods, and with each passing step, a grim conspiracy is
revealed. Suddenly in too deep, there is nowhere for Max to go but
through. But when you trudge through a swamp, you’re going to get muddy.
The Chamber of Ten
The Hidden Cities Book 3
Archaeologist Dr. Geena Hodge is on the precipice of success: her team has found an
entrance to an underground chamber while searching for the Petrarch’s
lost library. A documentarian is joining her team for the descent
into the long-hidden structure and may be the key to extensive
funding. Best of all, she is able to share the excitement of this
momentous occasion with her assistant-slash-lover, Nico, whose
psychic presence resonates in her own mind.

Within a strikingly preserved room—unlike any Venetian excavation—the
team finds only one artifact: a small vessel that immediately
mesmerizes Nico. While the team investigates a slab of granite inlaid
in the floor, Nico becomes transfixed by the object, and before he
can be stopped, he has the urn in his hands. Then, it is broken open
on the ground. And with that, the impossibly withheld groundwater
begins to fill the chamber…
In the clamor to escape the rapidly flooding room and save the found
texts, the team is sent in all directions. And Nico’s mind, always
attuned to Geena’s, seems to go quiet. His actions in the days
after the incident feel unlike him, and his consciousness seems to
dissolve beneath the weight of his experience with the artifact. What
insidious force was within? And what can satisfy its restless will?
The Shadow Men
The Hidden Cities Book 4
From Beacon Hill to Southie, historic Boston is a town of vibrant
neighborhoods knit into a seamless whole. But as Jim Banks and Trix
Newcomb learn in a terrifying instant, it is also a city
divided—split into three separate versions of itself by a mad
magician once tasked with its protection.

Jim is happily married to Jenny, with whom he has a young daughter,
Holly. Trix is Jenny’s best friend, practically a member of the
family—although she has secretly been in love with Jenny for years.
Then Jenny and Holly inexplicably disappear—and leave behind a
Boston in which they never existed. Only Jim and Trix remember them.
Only Jim and Trix can bring them back.
With the help of Boston’s Oracle, an elderly woman with magical powers,
Jim and Trix travel between the fractured cities, for that is where
Jenny and Holly have gone. But more is at stake than one family’s
happiness. If Jim and Trix should fail, the spell holding the
separate Bostons apart will fail too, and the cities will reintegrate
in a cataclysmic implosion. Someone, it seems, wants just that.
Someone with deadly shadow men at their disposal.

Review

The Shadow Men starts when we are introduced into the world of Jim, his strange dreams and his beautiful family but soon his world goes upside down and he finds himself in a situation where everything he believed has become a lie…..

First of all, I loved the setting of the book. The concept of the parallel worlds is very fascinating and how each world provides a different possibility, a different journey for the people in it is very interesting.

And secondly, The Shadow Men was an absolute page turner filled with suspense and twists and turns. If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy thriller then you definitely need to have The Shadow Men in your collection.

Orbit: Book Review

Title: Orbit
Author: Leigh Hellman
Genre: Upper YA (Clean NA) Science Fiction
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

SYNOPSIS

Ciaan Gennett isn’t green, despite the brand of light hair that betrays her heritage: an Earth mother. A mother she remembers but doesn’t know, who left one day and never came back. Ciaan’s as metal as her home planet—cold and hard and full of so many cracks she’s trying to ignore that she doesn’t have time to wonder about questions that don’t get answers.
After one too many run-ins with the law, Ciaan finds herself sentenced to probation at a port facility and given an ultimatum: Prove that your potential is worth believing in. With help from her best friend Tidoris, Ciaan stays away from trouble—and trouble stays away from her. But when a routine refueling turns into a revelation, Ciaan and Tidoris find themselves forced into an alliance with an Earth captain of questionable morality and his stoic, artificially-grown first officer. Their escalating resistance against bureaucratic cover-ups begins unraveling a history of human monstrosity and an ugly truth that Ciaan isn’t so sure she wants to discover.
Now they all must decide how far they are willing to dig into humanity’s dark desperation—and what they are willing to do about what digs back.

REVIEW

Orbit is set in future where new metal planets have been made in order manage the over population of Earth. 78 yrs before the story starts, the first batch of Earth people were deployed to p-planets after which they have created a world of their own in different p planets. Our main character Ciaan belongs to a p-planet called Toi.

Orbit is full of adventure and mystery which kept me at the edge of my seat right from the very first page. I loved the backdrop of artificial planet and inter planet communications. I also loved the character of Ciaan and her friend Dori and their rock-solid friendship.

This science fiction is must read for all science fiction fans. And if you are not a sci-fi reader and would like to try something different then this is the book to buy.

Hello I am here with a review of a poetry book No one Listens By Lady Byrd. Read on to know what I thought about the book.

No one Listens

By Lady Byrd

SYNOPSIS
This book features life experiences of a young poet coming into her truth. Finding the beauty and pain that comes with words. Expressing deep emotions, such as joy, humor, despair, and heartbreak. Ultimately leading to her awakening.

GoodreadsAmazon

REVIEW

This poetry collection is straight from the author’s heart. And when I was reading this poem I also found a great deal of my emotions laid out on the page too. I was able to connect to each and every poem and that is the best thing about it. Mostly I don’t read poetry books because I find them hard to understand, but with this book the emotions were very clearly and beautifully described.

If you are looking for a poetry book for great literature then No one Listens might not be for you but if you are looking for a poetry collection that you will be able to connect easily then you should definitely order a copy of No one Listens and read it with your next cup of coffee, curled up in a nice warm blanket.

The Nanny Song

Publication Date: May 10th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Suspense/ Romance

Publisher: Willow River Press
Mallory Riscoe is no stranger to dysfunction. Despite her tumultuous childhood, at twenty-two, she has established herself as a fully functional, self-made woman.

Meanwhile, a dismal pall hangs over the Colt residence. Since the death of his wife, Brendan Colt has struggled to care for his children; Kason and Meela. Each is lost in their own deep grief, but there is more to this family than meets the eye.

Two worlds collide when Mallory accepts the job as nanny to the Colt children. Mallory begins to feel a connection, a whisper of trust between them, that could mean there is still hope for everyone involved to heal. But when an unspeakable secret is uncovered that bond, and possibly Mallory’s life itself is now at risk. Can Mallory unlock the mystery intertwined in this chaotic family or will all hope of closure be lost forever?

Add to Goodreads

REVIEW

I loved reading The Nanny Song! The Nanny Song starts out with Mallory meeting the Colt family in the mall she worked in. This is soon followed by her losing this job and getting hired as the Colt children’s nanny.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this heartwarming and sweet story with a hint of Mystery. This story made me laugh at the kid’s little antics, made my heartache at parts and also kept me at the edge with the mystery. The Nanny Song is an engaging family drama with beautifully written story that you get lost in from the very first page.

I just had a little problem with the book. I felt the end was a bit too rushed and the romance just happened abruptly without much cooking. I wish a few more pages were there to this story to fix the above problem. Even though I had this little problem but still I loved reading this book and would love to recommend it to all contemporary/ family drama readers out there.

Excerpt

A chilly breeze had picked up and it whispered all around her. She was hardly aware of the frigid temperature penetrating her thin pajamas as she stared at Brendan’s form in the darkened cemetery. His shadowy outline was so stoic and somber that Mallory had to fight against her desire to walk in alongside the man and place a comforting arm around his shoulders.
