Book View: Amber House

Book View: Amber House

I had heard of Amber House before, but randomly downloaded it from Audible when they were having a 2 for 1 sale. The narration was well done and I felt myself pulled into the story. I was slightly disappointed when there wasn’t really any ghosts or hauntings, just visions from the past. Also, the two love interests were fairly similar in that I liked them both for different reasons. We had the usual brooding in Jackson, the mixed heritage boy whose family is tied to Amber House from back when they were slaves. Richard is the good-looking son of a […]

Book View: Ruin and Rising

Book View: Ruin and Rising

Ruin and Rising is the conclusion to a series I fell in love with at book one. Possibly not for the right reasons, although many people I talk to love the Darkling as much as I do. Alina, our main character is not the strongest character I’ve encountered but she seems to pull through in moments of need. The highlight of this last book was more of the dashing Nikolai, some intense battles and really it moved quickly and pulled me in. I struggled with the second book because it was so darn slow, this one totally makes up for […]

Book View: The Burning Shadow

Having loved Gods and Warriors, I could not wait to get my hands on The Burning Shadow. Only, I forgot it came out until I came across it at the library in the new section and snatched it into my hands. Our three main characters have separated, but end up convening again in an unlikely twist of fate on an island where the Crows rule. Hylas is the first to arrive, becoming enslaved and forced to work in mines where shadows seems to lurk and he finds a companion in a lion cub whose family was killed by the Crows. […]

May was a big woman full of love and at the beginning of the story she has died, leaving Ob and May on their own.
