#Review – Jinn (The Immortalem Series Book 1) by Jessica Cage

Jinn (The Immortalem Series Book 1)

 

In a post-apocalyptic world, the earth is divided.

Magical creatures rule the lands, and the strongest are about to be challenged.

For centuries, Jinn has watched from afar as dragons, fairies, vampires, and witches, fought to claim a part of the world as their own. Afraid that he would join with an opposing force, no one disputed his neutral stance.

An old friend presents Jinn with an offer he can’t refuse. The love he thought he’d lost forever is still alive, and he has the map to her location.

Mike wants his people freed from the slums and Jinn has the power to make that happen. In return for his aid, Mike will lead the quest into the darkest corner of the earth to find her.

With a new player on the field, everyone is on edge and for good reason. Jinn will go to hell and back for the woman he loves, and he’ll destroy anyone who gets in his way.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

 

Well, that was not what I expected! I really can’t wait for the sequel to Jinn! The story moved along a little on the slow side for me at first but I think it was needed for world building and to really get a good grasp of what kind of person Jinn really is, supernaturally and his human nature. But after it picked up, there was no way I could put this down. I WAS STUCK! As you read from the synopsis Jinn has stayed neutral in the war but there is a woman that he lost a very long time ago. He would go to the ends of the earth for her. When there is a chance that she is still alive he makes a choice to take sides to aid an old friend and try to bring the different supernatural species together in exchange for information on her location. But many of these supernatural beings are extremely scared of what Jinn just may do if he cannot find the love of his life. The journey that Jinn and his rag-tag crew go on is very eye opening, not only for the beings in the story but can also give you some perspective of every day life in the real world. All of the characters are a little different and the banter between them all keeps the story light and entertaining. There are some major twists and turns nearing the end of the book. And the ending….well, I’m gonna have to let you get to that point. Kudos to Jessica Cage! I am looking forward continuing Jinn’s journey!

#NewRelease – #Review – The Sphinx by Jessica Cage

The Sphinx

 

Some stories are told, others are not, the best ones are reimagined.

Stories are told of the sphinx—a monster with the head of a woman, the body of a lioness, the wings of an eagle, and a tail tipped with the head of a serpent. This beast was told to have been made to guard the entrance to the Greek city of Thebes. For each traveler to cross her path, a riddle was presented. If they could answer it correctly, access would be granted. What was her riddle?
“What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three in the evening?” The price to pay for answering the riddle incorrectly, which of course they all did, was not a simple denial of entry to Thebes. Instead of turning them away, the sphinx, monster that was, strangled them with her tail and devoured them whole.
The story goes that when it finally came to pass that someone could answer her riddle and the consecutive ones to follow, she committed suicide. What else was a girl to do? Some say she threw herself down from the high rocks and fell to her death, while others say that she devoured herself, subjecting herself to the same punishment she dished out to all those who had failed before, a talented feat.
However, the question remains … what really happened to her?

 

Goodreads

 

This has it all! Greek Gods, Sirens, Vampires, Shifters….all things paranormal! LOVED this book! As you read in the description this is about the Sphinx and what really happened to her when she dies. As all stories are told over the years they change, just like the game of telephone that we all grew up with. Asa is our main character here. She was, or still is, the Sphinx. She was cursed to be the Sphinx when she denied the God of War, Ares. She was bound to be cursed forever but she found her loophole and went into hiding. She continues to hide and plot just waiting for the day that she faces Ares again. She is out for the ultimate revenge….but come to find out that she may not be the only one that is out for revenge (not telling you who!!!!) She has lived a lonely life preparing for the moment that she can seek her revenge but there are always speed bumps as she has been living in isolation for so long. I believe Asa meets her match with Carter! When the two of them meet the sparks fly! They are attracted to each other but they both have wicked trust issues. As the story unfolds and truths are revealed they are going to have to decide if revenge is worth it or if they can survive….together. This has the perfect mix of paranormal mixed into the retellings of Greek history. Action packed with a love story! Jessica Cage is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more of her stories. This is definitely an intriguing page turner. You won’t want to miss The Sphinx!
