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.

 

5/5

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!

Cassandra Clare books: The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices

          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

There’s more to come! book 5, 6
AND NOW TO : THE INFERNAL DEVICES
“The Infernal Devices: A companion series to The Mortal Instruments “
9781416975861
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!!!!!
CAN’T WAIT FOR THE OTHER BOOK!

Born at Midnight
                            by: C.C. Hunter


       

Born at Midnight (Shadow Falls, #1)

One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.
Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…


SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
           I love the pattern thing in their heads that shows what kind of creature you are. I really like her acttitude and of course her room mates are just funny xD!. This is a fabulous book. Derek’s a beautiful fae and I love his feeling; he gives you peace, comfort and you feel safe with him… but there’s Lucas that to my shock they knew each other!!!!! he’s HOT and a rebel werewolf which attracts every sense of us; and I like how he is too! so I know how she feels of choosing to be with.


          The most important thing about this book is that she’s looking for answers to know what she is. She doesn’t know what she is and the book ends with knowing that the man she always called adad is not her dad but the ghost she decides to talk… whom has the same unique pattern that she has and knowing that Lucas is gone……………………………………………..
