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: 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!

Give Me Your Trust (Paranormal City Novelette)
Goodreads:

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout


The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck


*******************************************************************
          As Alexandria is coming of age, her mother is “killed” by the daimons and when she escapes she’s back at a place she never thought of coming back… the Covenant, a schooll were half-bloods and pure bloods can study together, but of course there are the rules of not having relationships with a pure blood and a half-blood. Alexandria is a spark! but even the light has it owns dark times. She discovers what happened with her mother, she has to train with the hottie of her life, Aiden ( I love him) trying to not get in love…. nor get in the bed!, has to prove herself she’s worth it… and worse of all…. she’s not the typical half-blood.


                                                                     SUPER 5/5 I’M DYING TO GET TO READ MORE OF THIS SERIE!

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.

Book #5:  The Wrath of Mulgarath

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.

Cassandra Clare books: The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices

0

          Well hello there! I had been waiting for this!!!!! when I can finally talk about this awesome series. I feel a little guilty because …. I haven’t actually planned to read the first book of the Infernal Devices and I regret to haven’t read this book before!!! I LOVED IT! yeah well let’s start with this!




THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS:


Book One: City of Bones
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder – much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing – not even a smear of blood – to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know.

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

SPOILERS

                                   

It all starts when she sees for the first time Shadowhunters. This book is the beginning of the new life that Clary is going to have from now on, as she soon discovers she’s just not a “normal” girl, but a Shadowhunter. All secrets starts to unfold and a lot of thing happens… like meeting hot boys, for example Jace. Oh beautiful Jace, strong and cold. The kiss was a beautiful thing to think… but hey I was totally jealous! I mean what a grat hottie you got there, Clary! and another thing I really like is that she draws. The way the author explain the story it’s really good. I mean half angel? and how they were created, it’s really awesome. You just have to read this book. READ IT!!!!! and well Clary will start a new journey that will change her life.

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

Book Two: City of Ashes
· 62,377 ratings · 5,149 reviews

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what’s normal when you’re a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who’s becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn’t ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

I always knew Simon was in love with Clary.**

                                                                                  4/5

Book Three: City of Glass
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters — never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and her best friend, Simon, has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City — whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments.

SPOILERS!
I really loved how hot it was her brother Sebastian. Yes he was her brother and not Jace… not really. I really loved this book. When Magnus and Alex kissed! FINALLY! Simon being a hot vampire, how he fought, Clary with Jace and how she helped him… using the legendary mortal instrumen wish. Valentince dead…and how Jace, Clary and Sebastian were created; Jace and Clary with more angel blood, beautiful! and Sebastian hot demon, I can see.
                                                                           SUPER 5/5

LOVE this cover, the guy is hot and the wings are awesome.
Book four: City of Fallen Angels
Some spoilers!
Simon is a new kind of vampire… with super powers that some vampires want. He can’t choose between Maia or Isabelle… and well he has to sort things out with her human mother. Sebastian is back and a lot of things dealing with magic is coming… and not good, since Jace too was having this sort of vision where he killed Clary while… having a hot affair. Love problems, drama, dead people… plus new marks and magic? Trouble.
LOVED ITTTTTT!                                                               5/5

We will see some people we already know and let me tell you if you enjoyed the other serie you will be really excited when you see their names. Tessa is looking for her brother and while she was looking for her brother, she is kidnapped by the Dark Sister, whom makes her realize that she has a power…. the power to shape-shift but not only change into something… she becomes into the the  thing she changes into, she can even hear the thoughts of the dead before they died and even of the living too… like the vampire CAMILLE. I love that Tessa loves to read! and so does Will… the thing is I’m mad at him as I don’t get what he said at the end of the first book. I loved the action in this book involving vampires and of course the story of our most awesome hang- out The Pandemonium Club that used to be kind of a han-out for the ones who liked the dark arts and such. Come into the world of Tessa…
OUR NEW HEROINE! AND SHAPE-SHIFTER NO ONE LIKE HER..
And try to discover like I do what are the answer to her past.
****************************************************************
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa’s power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by–and torn between–two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm’s length…everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world…and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

5/5!!!!!
