Review: Magic Academy

By: Jillian Keep

Magic Academy

Firia’s father worked nights but that didn’t mattered to her; it was the perfect opportunity for her to hang around the dark corridors for the Arcane Academy, a place which few humans had gone. Besides, at nights she didn’t had to meet the high elves. She went around to see the buildings and learn about them but she always went back to the same place: The Grand Library. The place in which she had spent her childhood reading tomes of spells and secrets. But as she learned more, she longed for more and more and because of that besides reading she practiced spells. Until one day she finds a hidden black book which she studied in detail before casting her first ritual. This spell was going to help her achieve her grand goal: to enter to the Academy, to make the elves notice a human. She was a human. Later on, in the library’s study room she finds herself in front of a monstrous being, the one she had summoned- a being called Varuj. He knows she wants to be a powerful sorceress and he will do anything to help her.

“He grinned unevenly at her. “Does it bother you, little human? He took hold of that massive length, gripped it in his hand and began to stroke it-actually stroke it!-right in front of her. He stared down at her petite form, mouth hanging open, fangs on display as he tongued his lower lip.”

My thoughts:

Just WOW, I have read other stories from them but I really have to say this book is my favorite so far. I can’t really wait to read the others book that will hopefully come. This story, besides having a lot of fantasy, has sweet erotica scenes and I really love the characters. I really liked Varuj since I started reading about him- there’s something about him that captures you, his maneuver, how he knows everyhting and simply because he’s the perfect package: hot and intelligent. But of course I didn’t liked what he did with someone. Firia well she’s nice and again I like that she’s really intelligent but for me she’s not my favorite, but if it wasn’t for her we wouldn’t have smexy scenes.  Then there’s Mae’lin; he’s the first one to have ever talk to her (he’s an elven) and I really have to say that even if I love Varuj he’s really is competition for the hot demon. Mae’lin’s not only sweet and intelligent, he is a great fighter and he’s really nice and a good friend. What happened with him at the end (read the book!) was really shocking and that’s the main reason of why I want to continue reading this story. Mae’lin started to grow on me and I hope to see him more… I think the authors are having little issues if to leave her with Varuj or with Mae’lin- I really want to know what happens and this is the first time I have ever wondered with whom she will stay. The school is awesome, I love that they had to learn a new language and their final examination was pretty neat. Overall such a really good, I loved it and I want more of it. This authors are really getting better if they aren’t already. Thank you so much for the ARC.

Review: Demonic Dora (The Demon Diaries book #`1) 
by: Claire Chilton

Not even in hell she is welcome. Meet Dora Carridine, the daughter of Theodore Carridine- a reverend, and her mother, Josie Carridine an ex-pole dancing. Dora has tried every sin she is capable of just to annoy her parents, but for some time she has been practicing dark magic- to summon a demon lord. Her first command if she ever gets a demon lord? Make her room red from the pink-princess room her parents choosed for her.  She decides to try again to summon a demon, but not just a demon- a high-level one. Dora places several black candles (making a circle with them), an ornate pottery bowl with a mixture of herbs, five drops of her blood and a Karabashi bloodstone. Just when she thought this was another failure, she’s being called a witch, with a hot blond demon and everyone wants her to burn. 


Profile:

1. Dora-> Also known as: “Demonic Dora”, “Minx-witch”, “Dora-minx”. She is human and witch. She’s brave, stubborn, fighter, lazy, intelligent (in her own ways). She’s 5’8, wiht long legs, black hair; and has a really shiny soul, meaning she’s more good than evil. She then (in evil form) had powerful wings. 

2. Kieron-> Kieron Derek Lascher is a demon lord, high-level. His ability is magic. He has high cheekbones, strong jawline, tanned skin, broad shoulders, great butt, abs, blond hair and blue eyes. He’s very brave, intelligent, overreacting, silly, cute, even strong. There’s something at the end of the book which can change what he is ( he then, has white and black wings.

3. Lord Lascher-> Lionel; Kieron’s father. Demon form: Color: black, body with veiny muscles, long fingers, sharp talons, scaly wings and deep voice. Normal form: middle-aed man with slicked black hair and dark blue eyes. He’s very powerful, bussiness man, traitor, he likes to tempt, and very silly when it comes to be with his wife.

4. Lady Lascher-> Anika; Kieron’s mother. Normal form: She’s a petit brunette with wazy hair and wears a sixties style dress. Very powerful (perhaps more than Lionel?), a pain the butt and very, very annoying. 

5. Pooey-> He is a small, brown colored demon with straggly fur, a squashed face and it was limply. Very grumpy and intelligent; has ninja skills and self-esteem issues. He can transform in a six-foot tall teddy with wicked claws and abs. Complete name: Personious Caelius.

Notes:

  • Lord Lascher, Kieron and Dora had the chance to ride the big, red dragon of the famous The Sky Huntress. There are different flyers but are under her command. Sky Huntress wore flying goggles, had long, blond hair and had a shapely figure. 
  • Kieron’s grandmother comes from under Hell, beneath the lava lakes. Is the level of Hell that is full of sexual deviants. She’s about ten-foot, blond amazon with curves and she looked like she had twenty five; wears a red leather underwear. Very nice and funny. His grandfather is 5’5 and slightly bald; wears black leather pants and a dog collar; his name is Hickory Lascher and his the Headmaster of Daemon Academia.
  • Lascher’s house: Is a vast castle on a hill at the side of the highway, with black pointy spires, with carvings of demons in every ledge, and in the entrance was the open mouth of a demonic creature with sharp teeth.
  • Professor Kazaik-> He is tall and pale, with long black hair. He was the highest warlock in the level. He was a first class professor of power; which meant he was the most powerful demon in the school.
  • They attein power by hating. 
  • Soul chips-> Are to pay; if they are with a lot of light- pure- they have more meaning.
Thanks to NetGalley for this awesome book.!

The Spiderwick Chronicles by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black’s

         Today I’m going to talk about…. The Spiderwick Chronicles! by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black


Let’s start our new world journey!


Book #1: The Field Guide:


Three curious kids discover a world of brownies, fairies, and other fantastic creatures in this ultra-enchanting launch to Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black’s Spiderwick Chronicles.




When the three Grace children — Mallory, Jared, and Simon — and their mom move into Aunt Lucinda’s old house, readers know there’s magic afoot. The kids uncover a nest of assembled junk, and on a visit to the secret library via the dumbwaiter, Jared finds a note describing “my secret to all mankind.” After a few mysterious pranks that get blamed on Jared, the boy finally digs up the real prize: Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You. Fortunately enough, the kids meet one of the critters listed in the guide — a brownie named Thimbletack — who makes it all “real” and helps provide the book’s suspenseful conclusion: “‘Throw the book away, toss it in a fire. If you do not heed, you will draw their ire.'”


*********************************************


          When they move to a new house they find out that is not only old but it has a lot of mess and secrets that they will find out as they have to… because they distroyed the house of a cute brownie named Thimbletack, that will do anything to make their life a mess if they don’t do anything. As they find out he is a creature that likes to clean and help in the house without being paid, they will disvover a new room where it helds the most secret; a powerful book, named Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide where it says everything Arthur discovered, fairies, brownies, pixies, and much more… but something is looking for thar book… because as you get to know more by reading… it can be a powerful weapon ( lol sound like percy) toward the good ones, to destroy them! and that something is not human.

The Field Guide (The Spiderwick Chronicles, #1)

Book #2: The Seeing Stone

         The Seeing Stone has Jared and Mallory rescuing Simon from a band of goblins. When the young boy is kidnapped, Thimbletack leads Jared to a stone that allows him to have “the sight,” or the ability to see magical creatures. Soon, the brother and sister are outfoxing a hungry troll, working with a helpful goblin named Hogsqueal to thwart the other goblins, and taking care of a wounded griffin. With more enchanted action than the first book and a suspenseful ending, this second installment will have kids chomping at the bit for more.


*********************************************


          In this new adventure Simon is kidnapped by a band of globins that wants to eat him! ( bad thing? they killed the cat 😦 what is it with the cats and not dogs?) anyway as they rescue Simon, they meet a new fellow named Hogsqueal. He may look like a goblin but he is not and thanks to him they have the sight… well in a disgusting way. Later on they meet too a griffin… a beautiful griffin that will be too their companion and battle friend…..


The Seeing Stone (The Spiderwick Chronicles, #2)

Book #3: Lucinda’s Secret

Fresh from near-fatal goblin and troll attacks in the previous book (The Seeing Stone, the children are torn over whether to hang onto their long-lost great-great-uncle’s book or to turn it over to the menacing faeries. Thimbletack–the house brownie who’s transmogrified into an angry “boggart”–has lost his patience with the kids, and he starts subjecting Jared to increasingly nasty pranks. Hoping that Lucinda might know something about Uncle Arthur’s fate (or at least have some advice on how to fend off the faeries), the three children talk their mom into a trip to the asylum for a visit–but there they learn their situation might be even more dangerous than they imagined.


*********************************************

          DON’T EAT FAIRIE FOOD! When they visit aunt Lucinda, they learn a lot of secret. She will explain what happened to her and what happened to her father, Arthur while he was creating the book… and don’t think fairies are good just because they are beautiful.
         
Lucinda's Secret (Spiderwick Chronicles, #3)

Book #4: The Ironwood Tree

First a pack of vile, smelly goblins snatch Simon. Then a band of elves try to entrap Jared. Why is the entire faerie world so eager to get their hands on Spiderwick’s Guide? And will the Grace kids be left alone, now that the Guide has mysteriously disappeared? Don’t count on it.

At school, someone is running around pretending to be Jared, and it’s not Simon. To make matters even worse, now Mallory has disappeared and something foul in the water is killing off all the plants and animals for miles around. Clues point to the old abandoned quarry, just outside of town. Dwarves have taken over an abandoned mine there. And the faerie world’s abuzz with the news that a creature with plans to rule the world has offered them a gift to join with him — he’s given them a queen…


* I really like this book because there’s new stuff with the artifacts and of course the adventure to rescue the sister; loved the cover hehe.



The Ironwood Tree (The Spiderwick Chronicles, #4)
Book #5:  The Wrath of Mulgarath
          The end of this awesome serie has come! Jared, Simon and Mallory must rescue their mom and fight Mulgarath, what will happen when they finally fight? While assembling his evil army the Grace children have to find there great lost uncle Arthur Spiderwick. Looking for their uncle they run into some elves. They demanded the elves to release their uncle. They Elves only gave Arthur for a short period of time. When the elves let him go he gave the Grace children all his knowledge. Using that knowledge the Grace children took down the evil Mulgarath and saved there mom. 
The end was really sweet and it was a great book. Elves? beautiful but they are dangerous.

Spiderwick Chronicles: Care and Feeding of Sprites
Spiderwick Chronicles: Care and Feeding of Sprites (Spiderwick Chronicles)
Many would have you believe that sprites (or “fairies” as they’re often called) are sweet and pretty and ultimately peaceful creatures. But don’t let the carefree nature of these dazzling beguilers fool you. Because while they do make for awesome pets (or, if you prefer, companions), these are not creatures to be handled lightly. So forget everything you know — or think you know — about sprites, and listen to the experts from the International Sprite League as they, with the assistance of the creative team that brought you the bestselling Spiderwick Chronicles, provide a resource that will prove to be as essential for the novice sprite keeper as a strong cage and eyes in the back of his or her head.

Harry Potter!

0

I’m going to talk about the famous Harry Potter *drums* hehe!

SO! In the first book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

– My Favorite part was the end-action part when all the teachers made a “test” to anyone who wanted the sorcerer’s stone; and the one I really liked was Snape’s- I mean it was really dangerous but it was interesting how Hermione discovered the right one.

– It was a little sad when Harry saw his parents in The Mirror of Erised but I laugh when Dumbledore had always wanted some socks hahaha-

The second book: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

– Wow! I loved the parseltongue thing! (well I like snakes) and of course my favorite part was when Harry was fighting with the gigantic basilisk!
– And of course I can’t forget about Dobby! ❤ muahaha when he aimed at Lucius Malfoy!
– AND I HATE SPIDERS! that Aragog is really scary and huge.
– The car is so random I laughed a lot. And that tree! jeez

The third book: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I have to say that I almost cried when they killed my Buckbeak. Since I saw this beautiful hippogriff I liked it. But let me say that I liked more how the book described the first time this students saw a hippogriff, because there were moere than one!
– Then I aslo liked the artifact named Time-Turner, because it’s awesome to be able to go back to the past and be able to save lifes too! but let me say that is a very dangerous thing if is in the wrong hands.
– And of course! Lupin and Sirius!!! I love both of them!. Let’s see; Lupin is a great teacher! I love his office and the things he teached. I did liked the fact that he was a friend of Harry’s father; Sirius is a special person; I really like his feelings; and I was very happy he got the chance to be out of Askaban and that he is Harry’s godfather ❤
– We can’t forget about the dementors. Such scary things that feed from fear… I must say that Harry’s really good at fighting them, because in my opinion they are a hard to fight.

*Fact of my own: I had been two times in Harry Potter castle and everything in Universal (going this week again) and let me tell you the part of the dementors is the worst!

The fourth book: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

– I liked how both of the houses; Beauxbatons and Durmstrang; made their arrive.
– One of my favorite things that Mad-Eye teached weas the three worst curses:
* Imperius * Cruciatus * Avada Kedavra
– And then of course the Triwizard Tournament.  It was very interesting and very dangerous.  I was in schock when Voldemort could touch Harry Potter; but hey! it was really cool when Harry’s parents appeared to save him.
-It was disgusting when I saw how Voldemort was. Ew.
– Very sad that Digory died.

 The fifth book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

– Grrr that Ministry of Magic saying that Harry and Dumbledore are lying! Bah! get’s on my nerve… Then that Umbridge I HATE HER. I hate that woman! I mean with that of ” I must not tell lies” but hey the centaurs make her pay!
– DUMBLEDORE ARMY FTW! WOOT! sorry I just love this army. The Room of requirement is really cool. In my opinion I imagine it more like “confort” and place that we could relax and learned at the same time… so in the movie, the room, was okay with the space but not with the looks. Also Hermione idea of the coin really cool.
-Luna! I like this girl! she’s so cute!
-I LOVE THESTRALS! I think I’m like Hagrid sometimes haha, with the liking rare creatures.. I wish I could pet one ❤
-The Order of the Phoenix is just awesome and in Sirius house? BETTER!
-That Kreacher! hmph…
– O-M-G when Harry kissed with Cho Chang hahaha … sorry for this but she’s stupid. Never liked her that much.
-And then the fight in the Ministry was really cool! but I cried when that Bellatrix killed my Sirius! 😦
-And the prophecy ……

The six book: Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince
(This is my second favorite book from Harry Potter serie)

I know Snape is a pain in the butt but… I like him, he is one of my favorite characters. I thought that the half-blood prince was Harry’s dad! But anyway I have to say that Snape knows a lot and that he is very intelligent. Very.
-Then there are the Horcruxes. I love how this new adventure in Harry Potter life is beginning! but… I cried when Dumbledore died! 😦 not cool.
*In my opinion this book is the start to the real adventure in Harry Potter life.*
-And another thing I really liked a lot were the memories. Just wow… this explains a lot and how Voldermort past was… really, really good.

 DUMBLEDORE FTW!

The seventh book: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

– My favorite book is this one. I just love it completly! Weddings, Lupin and Tonks and the new baby… and the fight in Hogwarts and YES Harry Potter defeated Voldermort! muahaha hmph. Sad book yes, because of all the dead people but well I did liked it.
– I cried too when Snape was dead. Didn’t stop crying, because of his memories… those sad memories. I really wanted Harry’s mom with Snape. Gonna miss you.
– I loved Albus Severus; son of Harry Potter and Ginny!; I was looking forward, hoping that the author was going to say there will be a new book… if in the future there is I hope is about this kid.

Percy Jackson, The Lost Hero and The Kane Chronicles series by Rick Riordan

6

Percy Jackson is one of my favorite series I had read. I love how this author can put mythology information in a story like this. I really learned a lot with this books and another thing I really liked besides the information it was how much this author knew about places.

Percy Jackson is a trouble kid. He’s been in a lot of schools but did he knew he was a demigod? and not only a demigod but that also he had a prophecy in his life? Later on, Percy discover that he is the son of Poseidon, one of the three that weren’t supposed to have any kids because of a prophecy that will decide the world’s fate. In the first book; The Lightning Thief; is the beginning of Percy’s journey with his best friend; a satyr named Grover and a girl named Annabeth; daughter of the goddess Athena; into the world of demigods and the Olympians!

Then the serie continues with a new one:

Prophecy:
Seven half-bloods shall
Answer the call.

To storm or fire the world
Must fall.

An oath to keep with a final
Breath,

And foes bear arms to the
Doors of death.

Well in this new book; The Lost Hero; is named like that, because this boy named Jason just came here to our awesome camp half-blood… greeks duh but then at the end of the book we discover he is not from this camp! and some other past-family-secrets!. It was a really awesome book; I may say I did liked it more than the percy’s one *gasp* I know but yet I did really liked it; with that dragon stuff and that new role of we must know who is this kid and where is percy!  YOU MUST READ THIS ONE.
—————————————————————————————————————————
 Another serie that Rick Riordan is currently writing is The Kane Chronicles. Egyptian mythology! woho!
Here is the review from www.borders.com

To stop Egyptian god Set from going after their father, siblings Carter and Sadie embark on a dangerous journey across the globe–a quest which brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.
 

I laugh so much with this two! I mean how they call name to each one haha. Anyway the story is really good and I was surprised when Zia was a doll!! noo! I screamed, poor Carter… I loved the house! I want to live in there haha. And wow this Anubis is really hot!-I mean I had to say it, because how the author made him was really good; thanks Rick!- and anyway I learned a lot too with this books. The second book is way better. I loved the action it had besides what happened. Waiting for the third one!

Now I’m going to show you some of MY pictures of the stuff I have about this series 😉 hope you like them and please comment! ❤

This are my Percy Jackson books tehehe with two awesome t-shirts and a pen LOL.

                                           This are the two books of The Kane Chronicles and the t-shirt :)!
