#Review – Faye Magic (The Othala Witch Collection) by Jo Michaels

Faye Magic (The Othala Witch Collection)

 

**This is a standalone novel written in the world of Othala and may be read independently of the other books in the collection.***

Welcome to Sector Sixteen of Othala.

Prepare yourself. It’s a competition like no other.

Think: The Hunger Games meets The Selection.

The last one standing wins the man.

Meet Morgan LeFaye Woodenson. She has her life planned out. She’ll marry Sawyer, the love of her life, and they’ll run into the sunset to be nomads, surviving off the land, not reporting to anyone, free to live their lives as they see fit.

At least, that was the plan until the imprisonment.

When reagent Orinthal’s wife dies suddenly, Faye is forced from her home and thrown into an arena to compete with every other nineteen-year-old girl in Sector Sixteen for the highly coveted place at his side. If she doesn’t win, she dies; if she does win, she loses everything she loves.

Deception and ruthlessness fill her, and she’s determined to find a way to hold on to her dreams—even if that means becoming someone she never thought she’d have to.

What a great read! Just like the synopsis says this is sort of like a cross between Hunger Games and the Selection but full of magic and shifters. What more could you really want? Well I’ll tell you…tragedy, love, hate, and a great villain! Faye, along with all other 19 year olds are brought to an arena and are expected to fight to the death and the winner gets to marry the ruler, Orinthal. He takes a new bride every ten years but his current wife died. These girls have no say in being part of this or not, no choice. Faye has an incredibly hard time with this as she had a plan for her life. She makes friends with some of the other girls and has no idea how she will be able to kill them. But she plans to win so that she can take out Orinthal as well. The bonds that she makes with some of the characters before the arena become incredibly strong. Including a certain guard named Grant. They have no idea why but they have a magic pull to each other but can’t express this or they could be killed. Once in the arena Faye meets some beings that she thinks are monsters. But what she really needs to figure out is who the real monsters are and exactly who she can trust. She is constantly running in multiple directions trying to figure out what to do. Crazy twists and turns pop up and her long lost mother shows up with some crazy truths. I can’t give you much more as I do not want to spoil the story. It was nothing like I expected it to be. The world that has been built will pull you in and as the characters come to life you will not want to put this down. It’s action packed both magically, emotionally, and physically *wags eyebrows*. It’s a great spin and a must read!

Jo Michaels is…

Hi, I’m Jo. Let’s forget all the “Jo Michaels is blah, blah, blah” stuff and just go with it. I’m a voracious reader (often reading more than one book at a time), a writer, a book reviewer, a mom, a wife, and one of the EICs at INDIE Books Gone Wild. I have an almost photographic memory and tend to make people cringe at the number of details I can recall about them and/or their book(s). My imagination follows me around like a conjoined twin and causes me to space out pretty often or laugh out loud randomly in completely inappropriate situations.

I have a degree in graphic design, and my journey to the end was one few students who begin that program ever complete. However, this was one case where my memory and OCD tendencies helped me. Graduation was one of the most amazing days of my life. But, my most amazing day was when my now husband proposed. Every little girl dreams of being Cinderella someday, and he pulled off the proposal of fantasies.

At the risk of sounding cliche, I’m going to let it out there and say how much I absolutely adore the man I’m married to. Along with my children, he’s my whole world.

I’ve lived in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, but I’ve had my feet in almost every state. Traveling is something I adore, and have plans to someday see the Mongolia I’ve written about in Yassa.

One of my favorite things is hearing from fans! You can find me on social media most any day of the week. Connect! I’d love to hear from you.21

#Review – The Draqon’s Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu #5) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu, #5)

 

She’s the spoiled daughter of the evilest man in the universe, but this Draqon refuses to let his feelings get in the way of his mission: assassinating her father.

Veronica Gideon has grown up a proper debutante. Intergalactic parties, socialite friends, and all the trappings of wealth and power. Attitude and privilege are her way of life until she’s forced to confront the underbelly of her father’s leadership by her charismatic, sexy guard with his own secrets–secrets that could get her killed.

Maxsym defied his Draqon hive leader to infiltrate the Zynthar International Space Station and kill Commander Gideon. But one thing threatens to derail his rogue mission, and she’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. Far from the safety of Kladuu and his hive, Maxsym must navigate a space station full of dangerous humans and his unexpected feelings for the bratty human woman with more depth than he’d expected.

Will the two of them save Kladuu, or will their differences rip them apart?

Goodreads

 

I cannot get enough of The Shifter’s of Kladuu series! This is the 5th book and although these can be read as standalones I highly recommend reading them in order as many of the characters come back throughout the series and there is a better understanding of exactly what the back story is on each one. The Draqon’s Brat is the story of Maxsym, the Draqon’s Hive Master, and Veronica Gideon, the spoiled debutant daughter of Captain Gideon of the Zynthar Space Station. Maxsym is a playboy from the hive and has defied orders and has infiltrated the Zynthar Space Station in hopes of assassinating Captain Gideon due to his dealings with the flesh trade (trafficking). Maxsym has been appointed the guard over Veronica and is hoping this will get him closer to her father, Gideon. Right from jump Maxsym and Veronica absolutely hate each other. Well, they really love to hate each other, LOL! There is an intense push and pull between the two. They are both hard headed and stubborn and the banter between each other is both fun to read as well as frustrating. At times you want to shake them both and tell them to get on with it! But this frustration is incredibly well written and necessary for the story. Veronica and Maxsym both uncover more secrets and cover ups that Captain Gideon is part of. They both need to decide if they are worth it for each other or if they need to part ways due to the different worlds they are from. The story is one of those that you will sit and read in one sitting and not even realize the amount of time that has gone by. Trust me, you need this series in your life!

#WOTR – #Review – Mionanamithe: A Fantasy Fairy Tale Novel (Twisted Fairy Tales #2) by Kyleigh Castronaro

 

Mionanamithe: A Fantasy Fairy Tale Novel (Twisted Fairy Tales)

 

***For a limited time DESECRATED BEAUTY for free
https://www.instafreebie.com/free/yKW6a (copy and paste the link in your browser)***

Once upon a time, that’s how most of these stories start. But this isn’t one of those stories…

When Lena was 16 she saw something that no one believed she saw. And for the last 10 years she has lived in perpetual fear of the monster who set his sights on her.

On the outskirts of the city, she lives in a cabin with her daughter Solene who is kidnapped one night by the very creature Lena has been hiding from. Desperate to follow him through the portal the creature takes Solenn through, she is only able to go with the help of a Faery man named Aviur.

They enter Aithar Gloine: the place beyond the glass, where she meets Prince Dagon and both men vow to help her find her daughter. But they also want to figure out what makes Lena so special in their realm.

With their help, Lena learns things about herself that will forever change the world she lives in. She also finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of emotions anchored to the two men who are helping her. It splits her heart and desires between the two. Her humanity wants her to choose one over the other; but does she have to? Things are different in Aithar Gloine, and as much of an outsider as she is… Lena has the heart of a Faery.

Get whisked away to another world in this magical retelling of the classic Fairy Tale Rumplestilskin.

 

Goodreads

 

This is a re-telling of Rumpelstiltskin, but a beautiful story nonetheless. Lena was a witness to a horrific event when she was younger but no one believed her about it. She later has a child but due to her paranoia she lives in constant fear. She has isolated herself and her daughter. One day her nightmares come true and her child is taken through the mirror. She gets help from a fae and she enters their realm. As she is learning about this other realm she finds things out about herself and the two men that are helping her. She uncovers many secrets but with these bring many more questions. She is falling for these two men but she also needs to find her daughter. The twist at the end really makes the story fall into place. The story overall is great but I found myself trying, too hard at times, to remember all the different types of magical beings that were being introduced into the story. I’m a sucker for Fairy Tales and this is another great one!

FANGIRL TURNED WRITER. SLYTHERIN SHADOWHUNTER FROM DISTRICT FOUR.

I’m fairly confident that I came out of womb reading the book. I’ve always loved stories in whatever medium they come. Books, movies, television shows… It didn’t matter. I didn’t discriminate (I still don’t!). It was only a natural progression that I become a writer myself.

I’ve been telling stories for as long as I’ve been reading. Even if it was just standing in front of my family acting out dramatic retellings of my day or making up stories of my own it didn’t matter. It was only a matter of time until I branched out into being a real writer and sharing my stories with friends and strangers alike. And you know what? It’s the best job in the world.

I write dirty, sexy stories about humans & their supernatural lovers. I grew up dreaming of being a Greek Goddess, not a Princess, so I wrote a book about it. In my Grace of Gods series normal humans find out they possess the souls of Greek Gods within them. They are whisked out of their lives and brought to Mount Olympus, thrust into the new and dramatic lives of their Gods.

Paper Tigers (Fear University, #4)

Fear University has created a new monster …

The infamous fear switch research started with me, Patient Zero. But I am a failure. My mind adapted and now I move through the shadows like the creatures I was created to hunt. I spent my entire life in a cage with scalpels in my brain, but I am finally free—thanks to the Commander.

I am Zero, and I will make the bad men at Fear University pay.

I, Ollie Volkova, have returned to Fear University to rebuild and restore the school to its former standard of protecting the world against monsters, both human and aswang. But something new is killing Original families all over Kodiak Island and nearly assassinated the president of my university. The hunters call it a ghost, but I know she’s something more. Something worse than monsters and men. Something like me.

Fear University is my home, and I will kill to protect it.

Call of the Raven (The Union Series #1)

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.
A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love he will die.
Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.
This becomes his strongest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help him change his fate?

#Review – Formation: Age of Expansion – A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Ghost Squadron #1) by Sarah Noffke, J.N. Chaney & Michael Anderle

Formation: Age of Expansion - A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Ghost Squadron, #1)

 

Kill the bad guys. Save the Galaxy. All in a hard day’s work.

After ten years of wandering the outer rim of the galaxy, Eddie Teach is a man without a purpose. He was one of the toughest pilots in the Federation, but now he’s just a regular guy, getting into bar fights and making a difference wherever he can. It’s not the same as flying a ship and saving colonies, but it’ll have to do.

That is, until General Lance Reynolds tracks Eddie down and offers him a job. There are bad people out there, plotting terrible things, killing innocent people, and destroying entire colonies.

Someone has to stop them.

Eddie, along with the genetically-enhanced combat pilot Julianna Fregin and her trusty E.I. named Pip, must recruit a diverse team of specialists, both human and alien. They’ll need to master their new Q-Ship, one of the most powerful strike ships ever constructed.  And finally, they’ll have to stop a faceless enemy so powerful, it threatens to destroy the entire Federation.

All in a day’s work, right?

Experience this exciting military sci-fi saga and the latest addition to the expanded Kurtherian Gambit Universe. If you’re a fan of Mass Effect, Firefly, or Star Wars, you’ll love this riveting new space opera.

*NOTE: If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.

 

Goodreads

 

Black Ops, Sci Fi, Space Opera that sucks you in from the very beginning! I have not read any of the books that go along with this but if you are a lover of the fast paced, action packed, and the crazy characters that go with this type of thing then this is the book for you! Right from the beginning there is a scuffle with some of our main characters. But this is only the start. Our outcast, Eddie, used to be in the Federation but is now doing his own thing but still stands up for what he believes in. He is recruited to do some black ops type of work that involves stopping some bad guys that are doing bad things. He is paired up with Julianna and both are badass! They have been given an opportunity to recruit some diverse people to help them stop this quiet war and save some innocents. But nothing they do is going to be “normal”. Two of the recruits are of a different alien race and how they come upon them is nothing but out of the ordinary. The banter between all of them, during conflicts and when they are relaxing, is so fun! I kind of imagine these stories being a cross between Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy. There is never a dull moment with this team and I doubt there ever will be. I am looking forward to seeing what else the Ghost Squadron come up against. Must read!

Michael Anderle

Michael Anderle (ok, weird talking about myself in the 3rd person) (1967-Hopefully a long time from NOW) was born in Houston, Tx. A very curious child, he got into trouble – a lot. What to do with an inquisitive mind when he was grounded? Read!

Ok, done with all of that 3rd person stuff.

In the first 20 years, I mostly read Science Fiction and Fantasy. In the last 10 years I have enjoyed Urban Fantasy and Military Fiction. With this background, I’ve been blessed with creating The Kurtherian Gambit series, a well-selling, and fan loved, collection of stories.

The fans have propelled these stories beyond my wildest imagination and they should get all of the credit for sharing with friends, family and occasionally the random person on the street. They are fantastic!

#Review – New Egypt: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #5) by Sarah Noffke

New Egypt: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage, #5)

 

After a century, magic’s greatest enemy has returned—Vampires. 

Queen Azure sets off on a world tour of Oriceran, thinking she’ll strengthen relations with neighboring kingdoms. On her first stop in New Egypt she finds something chilling.

People all over the kingdom are being bitten, many of them turned. 

Led into a secret headquarters, Azure meets one of the oldest covens governed by the magic that connects Oriceran to Earth. The witches and wizards of New Egypt need protection from the vampires. Those from Virgo will need help too. These blood hungry monsters are taking over and want more.

Ready for a brand new take on vampires? Step into New Egypt where the Founders rule, turning those with magic into Followers, one bite at a time.

*NOTE: There’s cursing in this book because these witches and wizards are just rude like that. If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you. 

 

Gooodreads

 

One of my favorites in this series! The Soul Stone Mage series has been nothing less than a crazy bumpy ride with some really interesting characters. Just when Azure thinks she can enjoy her time and take on her world tour she finds trouble brewing in New Egypt. VAMPIRES! They’re baaaaack! And wreaking havoc! I love how the story builds and the hilarious way these characters play off each other. In this story we get a few new characters (one very surprising character, Bob, but I can tell you no more about him). Azure has been told she is more or less the chosen one and has to embark on another crazy adventure that is really going to put her to the test. The setting for this story is one of my favorites! I love Egypt and we get to see the differences between New Egypt on Oriceran and Egypt on Earth. Even though this group of characters seem to get into some crazy situations they all manage to keep things light and fun. It’s so easy to fall in love with the characters and this story. I can’t wait for more!

#Review – Grey (A Vampire’s Thirst #2) by Bella Roccaforte

Grey (A Vampire's Thirst, #2)

 

Grey has always enjoyed the finer things in life. He maintains control over his darker, blood-thirsty side by being “human” as much as possible. He’s immersed himself in the daily life of the living, as a history professor, and art historian. He has no patience for the seedier parts of humanity and revels in honor and propriety. That’s what keeps his thirst at bay, along with the threat of The Directive.

He’s been enjoying his mundane life, until he’s contacted by member of The Directive and ordered to complete a task, one he he’s been dreading for centuries. A favor he must repay for a time when he exercised less discretion.

Goodreads

 

Hang on for this ride! Literally! This is a super-hot story that is action packed and never slows down. Hold on to your hats, folks! Right from jump we meet Grey. Even as a vampire he is an incredible gentleman. Very genuine and cares about humanity but super sexy! He is sent on a task for The Directive, against his judgement. However, when he arrives the Thirst is overwhelming him, to say the least. He can’t get satiated. Someone is out causing a ruckus and there are bodies piling up everywhere. His judgement is clouded with the Thirst. This is when he meets Mila. She has family issues and is topside looking for someone special. But when we find out exactly what Mila is that the true problems starting coming out. I was a little worried about how I, personally, would like the book because I don’t normally read some of the sexier types of books because sometimes they get out of hand. But dayum! Bella rocked this one out! The storyline never slows down and never a dull moment. The supporting characters are incredible. There is the perfect amount of action, fighting, blood drinking, and LOVE ~wags eyebrows~! This is truly an unforgettable story and I look forward to more like this from Bella. **Get it girl**!!!!

#Review – Emancipation (Pen Pals and Serial Killers #1) by Jo Michaels

Emancipation (Pen Pals and Serial Killers #1)

 

Tobias Butler has been sitting on death row since being sentenced for a gruesome murder in 2007. Bored out of his mind, he decided to apply to the online penpal program in 2012. It’s a pleasant distraction—nothing more, nothing less—for three years, until he’s contacted by a beautiful, smart young lawyer named Jess. She’s convinced he’s innocent and wants to see him freed. As they organize their attack on the judicial system, he wonders how she plans to get his conviction overturned—because he’s guilty, and he knows it. Jess is desperate to release him—and he’s desperate to feel his hands squeeze the life out of her once she does.

Oh holy hell! What a mindf**k! This is one dark and twisted read. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time trying to figure out what the angle is. I just couldn’t get it figured out. Then when it seems like I’ve got it figured out…BAM! PLOT TWIST! This is definitely a psychological suspenseful thriller. This is told from Tobias’s point of view. He is a vile human who is a serial killer. He is guilty as sin! He is currently on death row and just going through the motions of prison life. To pass the time he became part of the prison pen pal program. He is contacted by all types of crazy organizations and people. But one day he gets a letter from Jess. She is a gorgeous young lawyer and she thinks she can get all of his charges dropped. He then becomes very curious and works to reel her in. Charming and good looking with a smooth tongue….and he has her hooked. The whole time I found myself yelling at Jess like WTF are you doing?!?! Run away! Why are you still entertaining him? OMG!  This is very graphic as this is being told from a serial killer’s point of view. Like, make my skin crawl graphic. It was a rush reading this. My heart didn’t stop pounding. Absolutely effing intense! There are no warm and fuzzies in this story. And the end….well, the end is flipping mind blowing. I was absolutely blown away. And when it was over I had to just sit and figure out what it is I just finished reading. If you need something out of your normal comfort zone, this is it. A definite must read!

Jo Michaels is…

Hi, I’m Jo. Let’s forget all the “Jo Michaels is blah, blah, blah” stuff and just go with it. I’m a voracious reader (often reading more than one book at a time), a writer, a book reviewer, a mom, a wife, and one of the EICs at INDIE Books Gone Wild. I have an almost photographic memory and tend to make people cringe at the number of details I can recall about them and/or their book(s). My imagination follows me around like a conjoined twin and causes me to space out pretty often or laugh out loud randomly in completely inappropriate situations.

I have a degree in graphic design, and my journey to the end was one few students who begin that program ever complete. However, this was one case where my memory and OCD tendencies helped me. Graduation was one of the most amazing days of my life. But, my most amazing day was when my now husband proposed. Every little girl dreams of being Cinderella someday, and he pulled off the proposal of fantasies.

At the risk of sounding cliche, I’m going to let it out there and say how much I absolutely adore the man I’m married to. Along with my children, he’s my whole world.

I’ve lived in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, but I’ve had my feet in almost every state. Traveling is something I adore, and have plans to someday see the Mongolia I’ve written about in Yassa.

One of my favorite things is hearing from fans! You can find me on social media most any day of the week. Connect! I’d love to hear from you.

#Review – The Draqon’s Queen (Shifters Of Kladuu #4) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Queen (Shifters of Kladuu, #4)

 

She just wants time to heal her broken heart. Instead, she finds her true calling astride a sexy, grizzled Draqon with fire colored wings.

Niva returned to Kladuu for the Alpha of Clan Vilka, but when he took another mate, her heart shattered. To pick up the pieces, she travels to the Draqons’ hive with their menacing, gruff leader. But behind his black eyes lies the one man who may be able to put her pieces back together.

Years ago, Zayd lost his Queen in a battle that left him scarred and full of self-loathing. But when a beautiful young human comes to live at his hive high in the snow-capped mountains on Kladuu, his heart begins to thaw. Flying in his Draqon form has always been about harnessing his rage, but with Niva on his back, he finds a freedom he never felt, even with his Queen.

When Kladuu is threatened, Zayd must face his fear for Niva’s safety and accept her as his rider and new Queen, or it may be the end of the planet they both call home.

* The Draqon’s Queen is book four in the Shifters of Kladuu and should be read after The Vilka’s Captive for a consistent series experience. *

Goodreads

 

A fiery story! Niva’s story is one of my favorites! Meek Niva is able to talk Zayd into taking her back to the Draqon hive with him. Zayd is compelled to bring her with him, and has no idea why, but it is killing him inside trying to figure it out. Niva wants to put her life on Earth and life with the Vilka’s behind her once and for all. She just wants to find her place and be accepted. She is drawn to Zayd and him to her but they try to fight it. Zayd has experienced a major heartbreak and coming to terms with this is putting Niva in harm’s way. In the past books the Vilka’s and Draqon’s have always had issues with each other. With impending doom on the horizon that’s putting them all at risk they are forging an alliance. The question is finding out if it will be worth it and if they can all be saved. The push and pull between Niva and Zayd is fire and ice. Hot and cold all at the same time.  The story and the blooming love will bring you through a range of emotions from being happy and laughing, on the verge of tears then making your hear t pound with the suspenseful twists. The world of Kladuu is simply intriguing! I would visit if I could. Until then, I will continue the series as it keeps getting better and better!

#Review – Land Of Terran: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage #4) by Sarah Noffke

Land Of Terran: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage, #4)

The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.

A betrayal sends Azure on yet another adventure. She must get back the Book of Branches in order to find the rogue dryads.

These guardians of the Dark Forest stand the best chance of helping Azure defeat Terran.

Then she is going to put Ever in a headlock. The Light Elf is on his own mission to save his father who’s been turned into a statue. However, Azure needs to rescue her people and stop Phillip. The virus has taken over Virgo and the Duke of Terran is killing the Dark Forest.

Can she do it all?

Save her people, help those turned to statues, heal the forest and stop a power-hungry dictator…

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

A magical world tied to Earth, and nothing like it.

*NOTE: There’s cursing in this book because these witches and wizards are just rude like that. If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.

 

Goodreads

 

Surprising and beautiful ending to this magical series! Following Azure on yet another quest has been wonderful. Even though I knew this was the end of Azure’s adventure, it never felt like it. There were so many other things going on, new characters, new places, and another adventure! Azure is one of my favorite characters. She knows when to be crass and when to laugh. There is never a dull moment with her friends behind her. They have her back and she has everyone’s best interests in mind. She is faced with so many challenges but she does an amazing job of putting others first and trying to solve the problems, not push them off. It’s a bittersweet ending as this series is finished but I am looking forward to the next part of the journey. I hope to see Azure and the gang pop up in others!
