Star Fire by Katie M. John (Knight Trilogy #3)

Star Fire by Katie M. John (Knight Trilogy #3)

Egypt changed them both in ways no one never expected.

As murder and dark arts cast a terrible shadow over both The Real World and The Realm, Mina’s connection to the mysterious Star Fire Sisterhood causes  her to become The Templars’ number one suspect.

Set amongst the snowy mountains of Switzerland and the ancient magical forests of of France, Blake and the House of Beldevier are given just one chance to save Mina’s life – the recovery of The Holy Grail.

In this epic heart-racing finale, ancient myths come alive and old scores are settled. One thing is for sure … the clock is ticking. From http://www.theknighttrilogy.com/

Wow, just when you think everything will be okay you find out something new. Mina is now a blood drinker because of what happened with that demon, Blake hasn’t told anyone what happened to him, and no one knows about Mina. Life is just super complicated for the newly married couple.

I didn’t know what was going to happen in this book but when Mina was jailed and Blake was sent on an adventure to get the Holy Grail back, I honestly didn’t think it was going to end the way that it did. I was worried, I wanted the happily ever after for them especially because of everything that happened to them in Egypt.

I definitely couldn’t put this book down, I stayed up until almost to the next sunrise reading it, it was exciting and there were so many moments that I worried about their relationship and what was going to happen to them. Blake went with Sam to find the grail, Delta stayed home to watch out for Vivian and her new baby and poor Mina was locked in an oubliette because of something she didn’t do.

Morgan and Merlin were working together, Merlin wanted revenge on Vivian for what she did to him and Morgan just wanted Blake still. She obviously didn’t learn anything from Immortal Beloved. There were secrets that were uncovered and lies that were told. And then more secrets happened with Sam and Delta who were dating but luckily enough they worked through theirs and decided to be only friends.

I can honestly say I was sad to see the end of the trilogy; I really enjoyed watching Mina, Blake, Sam and Delta become friends and more and grow as characters. I would love if there was a spin off for Sam and Delta because Mina and Blake would be mentioned in it, hopefully.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.

My Enchanted Life by Laura Eno

My Enchanted Life by Laura Eno

An American teen finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed in England’s magical community of Wode Gate. While dealing with gnomes, a cranky dragon, murder and mayhem, Emma tries to cope with her unwanted duties as Sentinel and fights to get back home again.
She finds that things aren’t always what they seem, people aren’t who they pretend to be, and someone wants her dead. The king of the underworld wants her too, but he may be the least of her problems as Emma struggles to control her powers—while losing her heart to a demon.
From Goodreads.

I was given this book to review a while ago and I just got around to reading it. It was a cute story about a girl learning about her family’s past. Especially about the parents that she never really got to know. There were so many secrets that Emma learns while she is in England.

I loved that she fell in love with a half demon, Matthew. Especially when she finds out what she really is, she doesn’t let what everyone thinks is wrong change who she is. She shows that she is compassionate and loves everyone no matter what they are. I loved how Emma never once allowed Randolph to bully her with how things should have been but weren’t because she wasn’t like him.

I wanted to know more about the demons world; I wanted the Oracle to have more of a part in the book since she seemed to be so important. And the king didn’t exactly explain why he wanted Emma so badly. I wanted to know what Matthew did while he was stuck there in the demon world.

There were so many things that I liked about the book but I felt that it was really short. I wanted to know what else was going to happen now after all of that. I hope there is a second book but I believe that this is a standalone book, which makes me sad.

I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Teaser Tuesday!!!!

Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading!

To participate all you have to do is:

•Grab your current read

•Open to a random page

•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

“The fierce longing that had surged up in her so swiftly receded with a sharp recoil that was like an elastic band springing back. She went numb, even as Sebastian’s lips pressed down on hers and his hands moved to cup the back of her neck—she went numb with an icy shock of wrongness. Something was terribly wrong, something even more than her hopeless longing for someone she could never have. This was something else: a sudden jolt of horror, as if she’d been taking a confident step forward and suddenly plunged into a black void.” page 174

“Sometimes” Simon shook his head.”Clary, you’re crazy.”
Her heart sank. “You mean…”
“I mean that I would never date a girl who insisted that I cut you out of my life. It’s non-negotiable. You want a piece of all this fabulousness?” He gestured at himself. “Well, my best friend comes along with it. I wouldn’t cut you out of my life, Clary, any more than I would cut off my right hand and give it to someone as a Valentine’s Day gift”
“Gross,” said Clary. “Mus you?”
He grinned. “I must.” page 524

Rapture by Lauren Kate (Fallen #4)

Rapture by Lauren Kate (Fallen #4)

The sky is dark with wings . . . .

Like sand in an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past they must find the place where the angels fell to earth. Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again.

Yet together they will face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies . . . and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed. And suddenly Luce knows what must happen.

For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now will be the only one that truly matters.

In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer. From Goodreads.

What an ending to such a great story! I totally didn’t see it coming at all. I am glad that Luce figured things out and realized that she really does love Daniel and is willing to always choose him over anyone else. Honestly it was quite nice to hear, I was a little worried that she wouldn’t choose him especially since her and Miles kissed in Passion.

This time they all are on the hunt for 3 things that have kinda fell off the face of the planet that will help them find the site where they all fell to Earth. They are all trying to stop Lucifer, even the demons (Cam, Roland and Molly). Mainly because if Lucifer does what he says he will do then they all will disappear.

Luce finds out everything about her past, even from where she came from. She also finds out who she fell in love with first, which was a HUGE shocker to me. I thought she was purely human but I found it weird that Lucifer took such a personal hatred toward her and Daniel.

I definitely recommend this book because it was well worth it, even when the story got a little slow in the other books, Rapture definitely makes up for it. When the end came I was almost sad that the story was over, I would like to see Daniel and Luce after everything. Like a few years into the future. I don’t think it will happen but it would be nice.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
