After throwing herself at Rex Colton for a week and being cast aside, Freya has decided to move on. So, typically, that would be when Rex decides to declare that she’s his mate.

Well, it’s too late.

Freya can’t know whether it’s a genetic error that has triggered Rex’s mate-ometer, or if he now genuinely has feelings for her, and her heart isn’t willing to risk another rejection.

But Rex has decided she’s the one for him. He’s a wolf and thereโ€™s no stopping his pursuit of his mate.

Can he make Freya realise that this is real, or is he destined to be a lone wolf? One thing’s for certain, with watermelon whimsies, impromptu duets, and demon drummers, it’s sure to be wild.

Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.

I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! Whatโ€™s not to love if youโ€™re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didnโ€™t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesnโ€™t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where itโ€™ll lead in the second book. Danielleโ€™s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if youโ€™re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

Synopsis

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava Lรณpez is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.

Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.

But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches havenโ€™t been honest with her. Avaโ€™s quest to strip the truth from everything sheโ€™s ever known begins with the toughest realization of allโ€”coming to terms with who she has become.

Book Review – Chosen by Sloane Murphy.

Book Review – Chosen by Author Sloane Murphy.

Blurb:

โ€œAfter everything that happened, all I wanted was to go to the Academy, and maybe, just for once, get to be normal.

But now my secret is out, with repercussions I could never have dreamed of and I canโ€™t trust anyone.

Even the ones I thought I could.

With whispers of murder still in the air, and lines between friend and foe becoming blurry, the shadows that were once my closest ally, could just be my own personal nightmare.โ€

Review:

This was a stunning sequel to Marked and kept me rapt throughout! For those wondering, Iโ€™d class this as an upper YA para-romance as there are some very saucy scenes in it that may be too mature for younger teens.

Sloane has done an amazing job with the character development, the story structure and, once again, I fell in love with everyone and Sloaneโ€™s writing style! Also, we got more Cam! Yay! We also get introduced to Ziniyah, who is a mer, and get to know more about his abilities.

I will say that there was one part that did have me confused, though, which was the bonfire. Although it could just have been my brain not processing it properly, but we have Eden meeting up with Cam and then them heading off to join everyone. The next thing you know itโ€™s the morning after and Eden wakes up in Zโ€™s room (that part was explained). I would have liked to have read more about the bonfire and the party after. Going from that scene to the next morning just didnโ€™t flow very well for me and felt it a bit strange that it was cut like that. I even wondered if Eden had dreamed the bonfire.

The relationship dynamics in this sequel is a whole lot different to what I was expecting but woah! I am totally digging the reverse harem that Eden has going on with the guys! Hey, if theyโ€™re happy then have at it! And it made sense as far as the plot was concerned, too.

With this book, I feel like I have just stepped into a paranormal version of the Hunger Games! Only the ceremony at Black Water Academy is much more regal and fancy! I loved this little twist in the tale and Iโ€™m excited and scared to find out what happens next for our chosen one, Eden! Bring on book number 3, Hunted!

Marked Release Blitz Blog Tour – Book Review!

Hey guys! And welcome to my blog spot on the Marked Release Blitz Blog Tour! If you saw my previous post, you will have already been introduced to Eden and her friends and will know a little about what is in store for them in the first book, Marked, in Sloane Murphy’s series, Black Water Academy. Not familiar yet? Feel free to read the post here. There are also links to purchase Marked and a giveaway!

Before I start my review I just wanted us to take a moment to stand back and appreciate this book cover…

How absolutely stunning is it? It’s so unique and beautiful!

Anyway, without further ado, here is my review of Marked…

Book Review – Marked (Black Water Academy #1) by Sloane Murphy.

This was such a fantastic read. Itโ€™s like a cross between Harry Potter and Vampire Academy but with Sloaneโ€™s own unique supernatural twist to it.

17 year old Eden enrols at Black Water Academy after the death of her guardian, Dannika. Black Water Academy is a place where teen supernaturals go to hone in on their powers and learn how use and control them. Eden is a vampire but there is a lot more to her than meets the eye.

I love Sloaneโ€™s style of writing. It was written in first person and once again it was so easy to get swept away into a whole new world. I loved the characters, although I did wish for more character development, delving into their lives at the academy and more backstory but thatโ€™s just me being greedy and wanting more, more, more story! And no doubt weโ€™ll find out more in the next book! Which, by the way, is it ready yet? I neeeed to know what happens after that twisty plot twist! Iโ€™m so impatient haha! Iโ€™m really intrigued by Ruby. Sheโ€™s so peppy! It makes me wonder if sheโ€™s hiding something. I loved the romance in this book. Iโ€™m a sucker for romance and thereโ€™s a bit of a love triangle going on between Eden, Creed and Ethan. I was actually unsure about who I wanted Eden to get with and Iโ€™m still not entirely sure whether I trust Creed either. I know Iโ€™ve said it before but….is book two ready yet? If you love the supernatural/paranormal genre then this book is for you! I wholly recommend you read it!

Book Review – A Princess’s Duty by Sloane Murphy

Blurb:

Emilia Daarke has wanted to escape the Summer Court her entire life. She’s not brutal like the other Fae. She’s not savage. But they are.

When the boy she loves, Cade Vasara, Crowned Prince of the Winter Court, kills Emilia’s twin, they are torn apart and Emilia’s love for Cade dies just like her sibling did.

Years later, she has fallen in love with a hunter – a forbidden love that goes against all that she has been taught. A man her father will never approve of. When her secret is outed, her father captures her Hunter and gives Emilia an ultimatum.

If she succeeds, she’ll lose the one she loves. But if she fails, he will die, and she will never be able to forgive herself…

This is the first book I’ve ever read of Sloane’s. It’s the mention of the fae that drew me in! And I wasn’t disappointed! Whew what a page turner that was! I love the writing style, it was so easy to get into. I love the chemistry between both Emilia and Oberon, and Emilia and Cade. I was actually torn about who I wanted to ship her with. I love how gory and dark it was in some places and how heated things got in others! I REALLY enjoyed the twists; and that cliff hanger at the end? Oh. My. God! I was about 90% through reading when I had an inkling that a certain character would turn. I’m a bit gutted though, I really liked them! A part of me is hoping it’s all some kind of act. Speaking of characters, I didn’t warm to Lex. He’s definitely one shady dude! However, maybe I’ll be surprised in the next book and he actually turns out good? Who knows? But I’m dying to find out what happens!

Book two, A King’s Oath, will be released in December.

*this book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review.
