Review: The Warlord’s Concubine
       By: J.E. & M. Keep

My review:

“Mirella often wonders what her life would’ve been like had she been born a princess, rather than the property of one.”

 All starts when the beautiful city of Ariste is very illuminated… by the fire and war going in the city because of the invasion of the northern’s; consuming everything that meant something for the elegant princess Anabelle Flair. While Anabelle was with her handmaiden; Mirella; in the height of the palace that took place in the slope of the Ariste Mountain, she asked Mirella where will they go, the only thoughts that crossed Mirella’s were: to reason and sorrunder to them or she could throw herself from the window- only death awaiting her. Then, two barbarians of the northern entered the courts of Ariste ready to take the both of them, and when the two of them thought everything was going to be lost, it came a tall, dark figure, bigger and taller than the other two; he was very dark and smooth… and while he was looking at them the princess started to talk and he decided that the princess was to be his new concubine, but even as he said this his eyes were locked on Mirella’s eyes. Mirella had never felt like this before, such a desire to be a concubine- and even if the northerns feared their lord, she certainly didn’t and she let him know it. 

Later on, their desire and love started to grow. Mirella, now his principal concubine, did everything he asked her. She adored the God-King and wanted to please him in everything he so desired. He choosed her to be his new favorite and even choosed her to breed him an heir.Mirella has never felt like this before; it felt right and she couldn’t feel more happy than to give birth to a child of his. 

When the story continues Mirella gets to know the God-King’s mother: called the Seer of the Ka’reem (people of the northern place) a woman of long white hair, without color in her skin nor eyes- she was blind; she had great powers. When the seer came it was because in those following days a war was going to take place and the God-King, called Kulav, had to go away. But that wasn’t the only reason- it was because she wanted to be close to Mirella; and now because Mirella has Kulav’s blood in her she can be a witch of the coven. Kulav’s not very happy by this as he has seen how his mother has gone because of all the magic and power she has in her- that she shouldn’t, in which she has gone mad. When the God-King leaves for battle, the Seer has another vision and is that her son will have victory, but also death… and by that all the women; including Mirella; started to chant to help their great God-King win… and so they did, other paying more than others but at least Mirella’s baby was going to be all right. The Seer was the one that choosed Mirella for her son- she knew Mirella would do anything for him and she did. 
The Warlord's Concubine
This is the story of how Mirella felt in love with a God-King and how she served him, showing everyone that she was more capable of what they thought.


My thoughts:

 Thank you so much to the authors for giving me an ARC of this book. It was a such a wonderful read… I loved how the story had those changes I never thought of. Let’s be real, I never thought this story would have magic in it, nor many hot-wonderful scenes of love in them. I totally recommend this to anyone that wants to read an erotica book with wonderful descriptions of the places and people and romance/sex in them.

                                                                               5/5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: Peregrine Harker and The Black Death
By: Luke Hollands

Description by Netgalley: 

MURDER SPIES EXPLOSIONS REVENGE

Peregrine Harker is about to learn you’re never too young to die.

London 1908: A secret society stalks the murky streets, a deadly assassin lurks in the shadows and a series of unexplained deaths are linked by a mystery symbol…

My review:

 Is 1908- London, Paris and India. There’s a terrible problem: the cost for tea is raising. Then, there’s Peregrine Harker, a fifteen-years-old young boy, orphan, living his life dreaming in being a wonderful spy in his dreams while in reality he’s about to lose his job as being a journalist. Jabez Challock, the editor, tells Peregrine that he has only two weeks to find out why the price of tea is raising, as this may cause a terrible problem for the day-to-day of every english man if they don’t have a cup of tea. Young Peregrine starts his search by visiting the tea trader Clayton, but everything turns upside down when he sees a coffin. Trying to see what’s inside of it, he almost gets killed by two men but is saved by no other than his cousin-brother, Archie Dearlove. Later on, while he was with Archie, the two of them see the scene of a man dying in front of everyone while they were eating- when they decided to try and capture the man that Peregrine thought that killed them, he took a paper from the dead’s man hand that consisted of a triangle inside of a circle inside of a square…Then, he tries to talk to a man that wanted to help him, only to find him dead with the same paper and symbol. The Black Death symbol; haunting both Peregrine and Sir Magnus Clayton, they have to stop the one behind all that before they are both dead. But, there are some secrets the young Peregrine didn’t thought of knowing, nor the young and beautiful daughter of Sir Magnus, Louisa. This is the beginning of a young adventurer.

Who is Peregrine Harker?

-He is a young boy of fifteen years old. Both his parents went missing while exploring the Orinoco River in South America. He went to different boarding schools; then went to live for a while with his cousin Archie, and before they took him back to a boarding school he run away to London, in where he lived in a small apartment in Soho and worked as a journalist. 
-Skills: Fencing, pistol marksmanship, horse riding, fast thinking.
-I think he’s skinny (for the moment) and with long hair.

Archie Dearlove:(may contain spoilers)

-Is the son of Sir Oliphant Dearlove ( he was the captain in the Royal Navy).
-He may be five years older than Peregrine; being twenty years old. He had a beamin smile and piercing eyes.
-At first we were told that he was Lieutenant Archie Dearlove of His Majesty’s Royal Navy; but later on he tells Peregrine the truth- he works for the Naval Intelligence, being a spy.
-Skills: Fencing, pistol marksmanship, horse riding, fast thinking, good at keeping secrets, good at making plans. 
-He was truly a good friend.

Ignatius Woolfe:

-Works as a: butler.
-Appearance: Short, tough, with a condescending face, hawk-like nose.
-Skills: Pistol marksmanship, Riding (vehicles, motors or anything new), very intelligent, fast, fast thinking.

Sir Magnus Clayton: 

-He was the owner of the Indus Star Importation Company.
-Appearance: Dark hair, face of kindness.
-Skills: Pistol Marksmanship, Riding, very intelligent, maker of weapons (such as guns). 

SPOILER:

Why was the price of tea rising? 

-Because, after all, Sir Magnus Clayton, being the villain of this story, was trying to import the last of his gold from India. He had a brother named Richard Clayton (the two of them killed each other), the two of them were poor, so they decided to enlist in the army. While Richard followed his duty, Magnus always wanted fortune and glory. When the two of them went in duty for India they felt in love with the most beautiful girl in Northen India, named Kitty Blackmore. Richard, married and had a daughter with her and when his brother Magnus found out he planned to make a revenge making a pact with Sanghar Khan. Sangar Khan, being an orphan he was taken by the religious band ( or cult) called The Brotherhood of the Black Death. They worshipped the Hindu deity Kali, the god of death and destruction, which made them experts and specialist in lethal poisons and razor-sharp blades. When Magnus went to get revenge the end was that Kitty was killed, he took their child, and almost killed Richard; which he came back to kill them all. 

 My thoughts:

 It was a pretty good book, but, it was slow-paced… which I don’t like that much. Also, all the names of the places they went were confusing. There’s also the question of if there’s going to be another adventure and if we will ever know what happened with Peregrine’s parents. But overall it was a pretty good twist in the end. Thanks NETGALLEY for the book!

                                                                            4/5!!!!!!!!!!

The Kindling
                By: Braden Bell




My review:


 At the age of thirteen years old, three young kindling named Melanie, Conner and Lexa are changing. Conner, the twin of Lexa is getting sick of a bully named Geoffrey and because of the situations that Geofrrey is making Conner pass, the changes had started by “weird” situations like turning his pants on fire, doing holes by punching the lockers and such as getting the three friends in problem. They think their teachers wants to kill them, as they are sending each other emails, and worst of all they are watching them. Just as they thought there was no exit to this, they meet Light and Darkness and now that they know the truth they must decided if to fight for the Light. What will happen with Darkness?

My thoughts:                                   


 I loved, loved, loved this story. I wish I could write and read so many stories as this one. I didn’t stopped until I finished and I wish for more… I think there’s going to be right? what happened with ________ and _______? (muahaha read the book and find out who they are) and well I really like the plot, the characters and the magic! (well energy-magic) and little Madi is such a cute girl! and I think she will be one of them too, if you know what I mean. Is an awesome story and I recommend this to E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E-! It has magic, action, a little romance, friendship, fantasy; just everything.


5/5 <3!

Vampire Wake (Kiera Hudson Series, #2)
5/5!!!!!!!!! LOVED IT

Vampire Shift (Kiera Hudson Series #1) by: Tim O’Rourke

2
Vampire Shift  (Kiera Hudson Series #1)           
                                                                by: Tim O’ Rourke
          When twenty-year-old police recruit Kiera Hudson is posted to the remote town of The Ragged Cove, her life is changed forever. Investigating a series of horrific murders, grave desecrations and missing persons, with her unique ability of ‘seeing’, Kiera soon realises her life is in danger. But when Kiera falls in love with Police officer Luke Bishop, not only is her mind and her heart opened to a terrifying new world, she comes to suspect that Luke might be involved in the killings. In a race against time to unearth the truth, Kiera must discover the identity of who or what is behind the gruesome deaths on the ‘Vampire Shift’
****************************************
          This is the start of the story of Kiera Hudson a twenty years old that has been employed in The Ragged Cove, a place that seems to be hiding from any other place. It rains a lot and even more weird everyone talks about vampires, even the place she is to stay is weird. They sell holy water and cruxifies. And even worst… in such a little place there has been a lot of murder around. Who’s the one behind? Is it only ONE person?… or is it a person? Kiera will sure find out! as she has sort of a gift that can see details others don’t!
My favorite characters:
1) Kiera hudson-> Long jet-black hair, eyes the color of honey. She has a gift that we don’t really know yet if it has a name, since her mother had it too.
2) Luke Bishop-> He is a hottish guy of no older than twenty-two with short black wavy hair, green eyes and well like a say very hot… well handsome. Vampyrus.
Other characters:
Vampires-> They are created ( as it says in THIS story) when a Vampyrus drinks blood from a human and so there are the vampires. But they are like animals! most of the time they only say Hungryy Hungry hehehe.
Vampyrus-> The vampyrus are what humans call “Desmodus Rotundas”/ vampire bats, because they have wings. They live in The Hollows, that are caves and caverns that are under us. They were here before humans came to Earth.
Other characters:
1) Sargent Murphy-> Good guy. Vampyrus. He had short grey hair and shaven. He was about forty years old.
2) Constable Potter-> He was tall and lean, with black hair that was slicked back off his forehead. He was about twenty years old. Good guy. Vampyrus.
3) Father Taylor-> Old and a very bad Priest. He’s face was thing and gaunt-looking, his eyes were bright. He is a Vampyrus and it has he whom took Kiera’s mom.
4) Kristy Hall -> A fifteen years old girl who was turned into a vampire. The first vampire kiera killed it was her.
5) Sergeant Phillips-> It’s a very mean man, that was the sergeant that trained her in the training school. Vampyrus

Two days ago I finished reading the last book ( for now! ) in The Last Apprentice serie. I love every bookn this author writes. 5/5 all of them, is a most read!

* I just love the concept of a seventh son of a seventh son. I liked the Spook as soon as I read him for the first time( name: John). He is such an old cranky man!. Anyway the first thing he had to do was pass sort of a test and is staying in a old creepy house ….the thing is here is the start of an adventure as he too meets a girl…. with pointy shoes! when you read the serie you will know why is bad a girl with pointy shoes.

But the Bane is not their only enemy. The Quisitor arrives, intent on hunting down anyone who meddles with the dark. Thomas Ward and the Spook must prepare for the battle of their lives.




Just wow! this book had me in such a way!!!! I was like oh no he’s gonna get killed. But it was a really good book, better than the first. I liked how he created Priestown ( I also like the name), I think here is where we meet one of John Gregory’s brother; and well the Quisitor is such an ass. Really…



 Curse of the Bane (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #2)

Book #7: Rise of the Huntress

     Things can never be the same again.

The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, have returned to the county after a long journey and a hard battle. But their troubles are far from over. Their home has been over-run by enemy soldiers. The Spook’s house is in ruins, the boggart protecting it has fled, and the malicious witches imprisoned in the gardens have escaped.

Tom, Alice, and the Spook must flee, too, across the ocean to the island of Mona. And it’s on Mona that this small band fighting against the dark will face an old enemy grown terrifyingly powerful. Will they be able to vanquish an evil that crawls beneath the ground itself? At what cost?

Will Tom and the Spook ever be able to return home?
 SPOILERS!!!!!




I cried when I read that the house was in ruins. That the cute fluffy boggar cat had fled… Poor John Gregory! and Bony Lizzie has escaped her bonds!! terrible! and worst of all she is not the aunt of Alice… IS HER MOTHER! and she’s the Fiend daughter!!!!!!!!!!!! freaking omg.
Anyway in here we can sort of a story about a fight with Bony Lizzie and the spook, Tom and Alice.

But now war has consumed their own country, and Tom, his friend Alice, and the Spook must flee to Ireland. The dark rages strongly there. No one can be trusted. Can Tom defeat the creatures that hunt him most fiercely?


SPOILERS


I loved the sword he is given! I am happy that Grimalkin is once again in here and that she’s alive… and that they have bound the Fiend for a little while!!. But when the Fiend took Alice now she has come back thanks to Pan but like a mean Alice… perhaps the story will not end that happy if Alice starts being like she did… He escaped the Morrigan yay! and well go to read the story and STOP THE TIME ;))))
