Deceiver’s Heart – audiobook

Review:

The Deceiver's Heart - Jennifer A. Nielsen, Jesse Vilinsky, Michael Curran-Dorsano

 

 

Book 2 in the series, after Traitor’s Game, didn’t disappoint. Kestra is tasked with killing Lord Endrick, but that doesn’t go so well and she isn’t the same after. Simon thinks he can save her without magic (because magic makes people evil like Lord Endrick). Coracks and Halderians are after her and Kestra’s life is in danger. But who can she trust?

 

I loved it. Listened to it super quick and right away started book 3 (Warrior’s Curse).

The Traitor’s Game by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Review:

The Traitor's Game - Jennifer A. Nielsen, Jesse Vilinsky, Michael Curran-Dorsano

 

 

“Nothing is as it seems in the kingdom of Antora. Kestra Dallisor has spent three years in exile in the Lava Fields, but that won’t stop her from being drawn back into her father’s palace politics. He’s the right-hand man of the cruel king, Lord Endrick, which makes Kestra a valuable bargaining chip. A group of rebels knows this all too well – and they snatch Kestra from her carriage as she reluctantly travels home. The kidnappers want her to retrieve the lost Olden Blade, the only object that can destroy the immortal king, but Kestra is not the obedient captive they expected. Simon, one of her kidnappers, will have his hands full as Kestra tries to foil their plot, by force, cunning, or any means necessary. As motives shift and secrets emerge, both will have to decide what – and who – it is they’re fighting for.” – Inside cover

 

This book enthralled me. I was so anxious to see what would happen to Kestra and all the people she met along the way that I jumped right into book 2 and then book 3. The whole series was great! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes YA Fantasy.  There will definitely be things you don’t see coming.

A Heart so Fierce and Broken

Review:

A Heart so Fierce and Broken - Brigid Kemmerer

 

This book is a continuation of the story told in A Curse so Dark and Lonely (an enthralling retelling of Beauty and the Beast). I loved this second book even more than the first one!

 

In this book, we follow Grey as he deals with the fallout of the information he learned at the end of book 1.  NO SPOILERS HERE!!

Goblet of Fire – audiobook

Review:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 - J.K. Rowling, J.K. Rowling, Jim  Dale

 

Book 4. I was flying through these, but now I feel like I need a break. Maybe it’s because this was the first really heavy book emotionally (for me anyway). I still LOVED it and I will always love Harry Potter. It’s great to be able to come back to this series whenever I want to escape the world.

Imposters by Scott Westerfeld

Review:

Impostors - Scott Westerfeld

Audience: Middle Grade

Format:  Kindle/Owned

 

 

If you asked me to tell you about myself, I’d say first that I like to understand things.

– first sentence

  

I loved the Legend trilogy and couldn’t wait to read this one. This book mostly focuses on Eden Wing (Day’s little brother). It delves into his relationship with his brother and how they try to get on with their lives after the events of the Legend trilogy. They are living in Antarctica, a nation with a points system that determines your success and standard of living. The inequities of the system are gradually leading to a rebellion. Day is now known as Daniel and works with the government law enforcement agency. Eden is a star at his university and has a bright future in the Republic. But Eden is drawn to the darker side of Antarctica and finds himself crossing paths with the biggest mob boss in the city.

 

I loved seeing how Eden grew up and tried to distance himself from Daniel while at the same time maintaining the values they shared. The best part of this story was getting a chance for closure between June and Day (it was left unresolved at the end of the trilogy).

 

I highly recommend this to fans of the Legend trilogy.

Batman by Marie Lu

Review:

Batman: Nightwalker (DC Icons Series) - Marie Lu

 

This is part of the DC Icons series and the first book that I read of the series. It was okay. I like the story of Batman and I enjoy the Gotham tv show. I watched the original Batman tv show when I was a kid and I’ve seen all the movies. I also love Marie Lu, but I found this book just ok. It wasn’t boring or bad or anything – just okay. I think I’ve used up my quarantine creativity for today.

 

I will read more of the series, just to see what they are like and since they are all by different authors maybe I will like others more. We will see. 🙂
