#Review – Exploration: Age of Expansion – A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Ghost Squadron #2) by Sarah Noffke, J.N. Chaney, and Michael Anderle

Exploration: Age of Expansion - A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Ghost Squadron, #2)

 

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

Eddie and Julianna are hell bent on tracking down Vas and making him pay for his crimes. He’s armed and dangerous, and to make matters worse, he’s on the hunt for a devastating weapon that could bring destruction to the Federation and all its people.

Someone has to stop him.

Eddie and Julianna, along with her trusty E.I. named Pip, must seek out the expertise of specialists who can break into the enemy’s network. That’s the key to beating Vas. They’ll also need more pilots and better ships.

But as Ghost Squadron grows, so do the dangers on the fringe of Federation space. They still don’t know who is behind all the attacks—the one pulling the Brotherhood’s strings—but no matter what, they’re going to bring this faceless enemy down.

Whatever it takes.

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.

Whatever needs to get done, will get done! I am really engaged in this series. The first book had me hooked at the beginning. I thoroughly enjoyed Exploration with all the crazy stunts and gadgets that the crew continues to get. There are lots of over the top stunts and it is very action packed which, if you are like me, will keep you glued to a book. The difference between this book and the previous is that there are a bunch of “smaller” type missions that the crew has to carry out to gather more intel and additional crew members. While these kept me on my toes I felt it was missing a little something with the buildup of the “big” mission. The crew members are all different and the witty banter between them all is incredible. The writing is awesome and the world building, or space building, is incredible. You can feel how close the crew are coming together and being more of a family unit. I am in no way discouraged about how the series will continue and am jumping into the next book soon. I can’t wait to see what happens with this rag tag Ghost Squadron and the crazy stunts that they are sure to get in to!

Something worse than monsters and men. Something like me.

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!

#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!

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!

Only one witch knows the cure to the virus and no one knows how to find her.

Azure has been accepted as queen and many people believe in her. As if the rift between the humans and witches isn’t getting better, the humans have poisoned the wells and streams of Virgo. Many are sick now and Azure has to get into action. Instead of handling the issues in the traditions of past queens she takes it upon herself to go on a quest to help her people. She has to find a cure and continues to be proactive in trying to help her people. She and her quirky group embark out on yet another journey. She must travel to the Mountain of Truth to get her questions answered by the only witch that has them. The trip includes many wacky issues and some new alliances. The only problem is they have to make it to the top of the mountain but this particular mountain is filled with magic and illusions. It’s a true testament to their friendships. They are also on the search for the Book of Branches. This portion of the trip really opens Azure’s eyes to the ways of many of the other people of Oriceran. She is embracing the fact that she is different and unique. Her heart is really there for not only her people but all of Oriceran. The series will keep you on your toes with all the crazy banter between this quirky group. It’s the perfect mix of emotion, fun, and fantasy. Loved it!

What is going to happen next?! That is the question. Azure and her father, who is human and was the emperor of Terran) are imprisoned for treason. Azure has to find her mother’s soul stone or her mother is going to die. In the first book she made some new, quirky friends on her quest through the Dark Forest along with her best friend Monet. With the help of these guys she and her father are able to escape with her mother’s soul stone. Now the next part of her journey begins. Along her travels back through the Dark Forest she is foraging new alliances with other unlikely groups. She is faced with immense amounts of diversity and her true colors are shining through. She really is someone that wants to help all peoples and creatures of her planet but she wants to be proactive. Watching all of these characters develop has been amazing and quite inspirational. The characters definitely have their own personalities and each of their quirks have made this journey so much fun to follow. Monet, by far, has to be one of my favorite characters in this series so far. He can be such a baby but is super witty and really does have Azure’s best interests at heart. The banter with Monet will keep you laughing and rolling through this amazing adventure!

#NewRelease #Review – House of Enchanted: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage Book 1) by Sarah Noffke

House of Enchanted: The Revelations of Oriceran (Soul Stone Mage Book 1)

 

The Kingdom of Virgo has lived in peace for thousands of years…until now.
The humans from Terran have always been real assholes to the witches of Virgo. Now a silent war is brewing, and the timing couldn’t be worse. Princess Azure will soon be crowned queen of the Kingdom of Virgo.

In the Dark Forest a powerful potion-maker has been murdered.

Charmsgood was the only wizard who could stop a deadly virus plaguing Virgo. He also knew about the devastation the people from Terran had done to the forest.

Azure must protect her people. Mend the Dark Forest. Create alliances with savage beasts. No biggie, right?

But on coronation day everything changes. Princess Azure isn’t who she thought she was and that’s a big freaking problem.

Welcome to The Revelations of Oriceran.

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

Fantastical, outlandish and fun story full of magic! I absolutely love this story! This author can take any story and put you in the middle of the characters banter, arguments, and thought processes. Azure is a witch and is about to become queen. Something goes terribly wrong and on coronation day she finds she is not exactly what she always believed she is. This sets her on a journey to the land of Terran where the humans live. No supernaturals are allowed to cross into the borders of Terran but this is an expedition she must make. She has a “crazy” grandmother that helps her on her way and all the creatures she meets on the way are full of riddles and mystery. The Dark Forest is an incredible place with fantastic beings. Even during the serious moments there is always someone with a witty comeback that keeps the book lighthearted, but serious, all at the same time. The trip doesn’t stop with the Dark Forest. I have a small spoiler…she does make it to the land of the humans. And this is a hoot! She is at a complete loss as to why humans are the way they are. But with her new friends she meets on the way she is able to fumble through this passage. In true Sarah Noffke fashion there is a cliffhanger! But with that being said, she cleans up a mess and starts a new one for the next book. I very much look forward to reading the next in the series. Got me enchanted!!!!

#DoubleReview #NewRelease – Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4) by Sarah Noffke

Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4)

 

One man will kill to get back what belongs to him, even if he destroys himself in the process.

Mika Lenna, the CEO of Olento Research, won’t be deterred. Yes, the Lucidites have the upper hand, but he has something better. The one thing that can really stop them. The potential to create the rivalry to any werewolf. Mika has crossed the final threshold of humanity to do something that no human would dare do. But if it pays off, then for him, it will all be worth it.

The pack is stronger than ever, but still missing so many members. Still, they find a way to band together to create a cohesion they didn’t know in their past lives, the ones before becoming werewolves.

Meanwhile, the Lucidites are quickly making progress with a solution that might help the men assimilate with the wolf. However, will it come at a cost? The men have become accustomed to the wolf, and losing it may feel like leaving behind a part of themselves.
And finally, Adelaide has realized that her father’s death made her lose a part of herself. She dives deep to find a way to recover it, but will she surface, or much like her father, will she be lost forever?

In the final installment of the Olento Research series, the wolves must defend and those around them must decide if they’re willing to battle along beside them. The final fight won’t be nice or fair, especially when there’s so much at stake. Each wolf is hungry for victory, but will their maker be their death?

I absolutely love this series! I feel like I know these characters. They are a part of me, my tribe, lol! Adelaide is one of my most favorite characters ever. And combined with Rox (our resident hooker FBI agent), Zephyr’s pack of werewolves, and one of the nastiest supervillains makes for an intense read. All of the characters are trying to find their true self. They are tirelessly working on bringing the rest of the pack in when things take a turn for the worse. People are being tortured and are dying from Mika’s experiments. This has to be stopped and this crew is working on the solution. I feel the story is about overcoming self doubt, taking opportunities, and accepting second chances. Bad Wolf is nothing short of a page turner. There is never a dull moment within these pages. It’s action packed but with the sentimental touches that make this story absolutely special. The Olento Research series takes you on an extraordinary journey. I hope to see more of these characters in the future. Especially a certain couple. This is a must read!

**On a side note, I need to thank Sarah Noffke for giving us just a little more of Ren. Absolutely perfect. Sarah, thank you!**

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Sarah has once again written a great series.  This is the final book in the Olento Series and I have to say it is my favorite series this far.  Really how could it not be my favorite it has werewolves, lucidities, and a little essence of Ren.

I was on the edge of my seat flipping the pages needing to know if Adelaide and Zephyer were going to get all the wolves back or if Mika was going to end up with them all. As always Sarah comes up with the best evil villains and Mika was like no other. He was killing and torturing people in the name of getting what he wanted at whatever the cost.

To watch the relationships of the wolves, Adelaide and Rox was amazing. To see how the wolves have grown and started working better with one another to see the strengths and weakness of each one, yes even Zephyer has weaknesses. Watching Adelaide gain confidents and learn how to cope with things was heartwarming. I have to say my heart was breaking to watch what Rox had to endure.

I hope we are able to see the wolves, Rox and Adelaide again. As this one comes to a close I am excited to see what Sarah has instore for us next. I have a feeling it will be just as good as the others she has given us.

A few of my favorites:

How does she do that? Pretend so well? Everyone thought she was so hard, but nothing could be further from the truth. This was a girl who just wanted to be loved. To feel deserving of that love. And if anyone ever told her how incredibly brilliant and beautiful she was, inside and out, then she’d feel a lot different about herself.

You’re an extension of Ren. You say his lines as if they were your own. You follow his practices, since they are exemplary. And you’ve inherited his snarky nature. However, isn’t the real concern you have with the group the fact you don’t want them thinking you’re an imposter? Now that they know about him, they’ll know you’re impersonating. The power you pretend to wield is his. Isn’t the issue that you can’t let him go as long as you refuse to be yourself rather than him? Who is Adelaide Lewis? She is the daughter of Ren, but she isn’t him. Have you asked yourself how you’d act if you weren’t trying to keep him alive inside yourself?”

he respected these two women, whom he’d been reluctantly thrown to. They were stronger than most people he knew, but had a flippant style that he’d come to appreciate.

he’s found a way to communicate from wherever he is, so I don’t think you’ve seen the last of your father yet. If I know him, he’ll be watching over you for the rest of his existence.”

#Review – Rabid Wolf (Olento Research, #3) by: Sarah Noffke

Rabid Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research # 3)

Rabid and hungry for vengeance, one wolf won’t stop until he’s put to death.

A string of murders involving women are making the residents of Los Angeles panic. They’re calling the serial killer the “rabid wolf” because he tears his prey open by the throat and leaves behind a maimed body.

Meanwhile, at the Lucidite Institute, the pack is training, under Zephyr’s instruction. He knows that soon they’ll have to go after the rabid wolf and also rescue other members of the pack. However, they need to work together in order to be successful. They need to operate as one.

Adelaide, knowing that she needs to put an end to Olento Research’s corrupted experiments, goes undercover working at its sister company, Parantaa Research. It’s as a new employee that she meets Mika Lenna, putting herself in a deadly position. As long as she maintains her cover then she can gain covert information and find out how to destroy Olento Research and its CEO.

However, Mika is tired of the Lucidites beating him. These are his werewolves. He’s the one who invested in creating them. And now the shareholders are pressuring him to deliver. That’s why he decides it’s time he sees the future, like the Lucidites. He needs to know where the next werewolf will be and when. And he needs a monster that can take them down.
The stakes are even higher in the third installment of the Olento Research series. The villains are more deadly. The heroes are growing stronger. But who will win? Beast, man or wolf?

I have been absolutely enthralled by this series but after reading Rabid Wolf I am anxiously awaiting Bad Wolf. This author pulled out all the stops with Rabid Wolf. Definitely not for the faint of heart. I have to say this is one the series darker books. We meet Hunter and he is the Rabid Wolf. He is wreaking havoc and brutally murdering women all of the city. But you will delve deep into his mind and you will understand more about him and how he came to be. Zephyr and the pack need to get him back and contained. Adelaide has gone undercover trying to get into Olento Research to try and cut the head off the snake. All the meanwhile Mika Lenna is crazily making these incredible bad guys that are right out of your wildest nightmares. He is the ultimate super villain mastermind. If there is one thing that I am never disappointed in is the bad guys. They are so bad they are great. All of the pack is put to the test in this intense installment of Olento Research. But you won’t miss out on all the snarkiness that is Adelaide and Rox. These girls rock! Oh and the end!!!!! Oh the end….I can’t even go there. You have to read this! Like now!
