Dark One Rising (Tanith Prophecy #1)

by Leandra Martin

The Kingdom of Aelethia has been quiet for five hundred years, but the Dark One is rising from out of the depths. All of Aelethia will perish unless the Chosen One comes forward to save them. Unfortunately, the Chosen One doesn’t know her destiny in the world; she only knows she is odd and confused about where her destiny lies.

She wants to find love, but the men in her life that actually love her, she cannot have, and the only one that wants her is as evil as they come. The elves know of her destiny and must tell her and train her in time, in order to fulfill the prophesy that has been laid out before her.
Can she become the person they have waited for? Can she, in time, destroy the evil that is threatening to overtake her kingdom? With friends to guide her and a man to whom she truly loves beside her, she may be able to save Aelethia.

“Welcome to Drydon Keep in Azlyn, Your Highness. It’s a pleasure to finally meet you.”
“And you as well, Your Majesty,” she said politely, keeping her tone light. “Your reputation precedes you.”
Dain looked at Alek but he only put his hands up in defense. “Not from me, Your Majesty.”
“Hmmm,” he said, his tone conveying amusement. “That doesn’t bode well for me, for any stories relayed by anyone other than my friends cannot be flattering in the least.”
“Stories tend to be exaggerated, Your Majesty, especially by those who talk only to hear the sound of their own voice.” She didn’t know about the other rumors yet, but the descriptions of his extraordinary good looks were certainly true.
He looked at her for a moment, then laughed. “Well said, Princess. Perhaps you speak from experience.”
“Perhaps.”
 

First of all, thank you Inkwater Press  for sending me this amazing book, and thank you Leandra Martin for understanding that little problem.

I don’t want to tell you Melethia’s story, I don’t want you to read it from my blog, this is an amazing book, all of you should read it. I wanted to participate in this tour because of the synopsis of Dark One Rising. I am a fan of Harry Potter series, The Lord of the rings series and The Hobbit, and somehow, Tanith Prophecy  reminded me of these books… I knew I had to read it. Although I read Dark One Rising and Aelethia’s Hope, the first one is my favourite. Why? He he, because… because there I found for the first time what an amazing character Dain is, what a powerful women Melethia is and how beautiful and dangerous evil can be – Fallon. Yes, I like Fallon, but I’m in love with Dain.

I didn’t like Melethia that much, I have to say. I know that, if she embraced her destiny from the beggining, the great story… well I have to write this: great story=0.

Another thing… Why did the author used „like a school girl”? I don’t think that this was used then, and I don’t know why she used it, but this was Leandra Martin‘s choice, she created this world it is hers, and she is making the rules. 

She waved back, her ears warmer now from embarrassment at being noticed, gawking like a school girl.

The author created a new world, a world where I would love to live, I saw it and I loved it. I love everything about these books and I highly recommend them to fantasy readers who are romantics at heart.

He watched her speak, enraptured by every word that came out of her delicate mouth. She spoke like a woman, but with a passion of a child, mesmerized by the smallest detail of life. He was excited just listening to her describing what most people would find ordinary, passionate about things that grown people have forgotten about.

Some words about Reality

To be honest, I liked this book. I usually don’t read something told at first person, but this… I don’t know. Maybe I liked it because it reminds me of a cousin who was born with a butterfly mark, maybe not. Anyway, it was something unusual about Reality that made me read it. Dani Hart created something mysterious and beautiful just like a butterfly. She wrote so gracefully, you’ll be able to see and feel everything.

It always starts with a mystery, and it ends with solving it, but in this case, it starts with a mystery, and every chapter will bring anotherone, in the end, you’ll have just a part of them solved. There is a lot going on that you really do have to pay attention to or else you get turned around a bit. Not all is as it seems, and there were a few parts where I didn’t know who the bad guy was and who was the good guy.

Dani Hart is the creator of something beautiful, a butterfly made from the only two things that represents magic on Earth – books and human feelings.

I look forward to the next book in this series. I give it 4.5 out 5 stars!

Story book butterflies by Jump-Button

„My mom always said that if you listened hard enough that you could hear nature talk to you.  In my case, I could feel it.”

„If River was home, Ashe was my heart.  Two parts of me that I needed and could never live without.”

“I closed my eyes and let the music surround me and slowly enter every pore of  my body. It invaded my soul and erased my thoughts. I started to move with the music, letting myself go, including letting go of the pain. I could feel the energy around me grow more intense as the chorus began. Bodies started rubbing up against me, but I kept my eyes closed and focused on the energy building inside of me, the feeling of release and freedom.”

“I felt like a butterfly with broken wings, and River was trying to mend me back together. But after a butterfly’s wings are broken it was destined to live a life without flight, and fate’s destiny for me was not to fly. I would never soar above the sorrow and be free from the guilt of those surrounding me whom I would drown in pain.”

About Ignite by Erica Crurch – Interview + Review

17875224
 
Penemuel (Pen) fell from grace over a millennium ago, yet there are still times she questions her decision to follow her twin brother, Azael, to Hell. Now that the archangel Michael has returned, threatening Lucifer’s vie for the throne, she begins questioning everything she has always believed.

As Hell prepares for war – spreading a demonic virus and pilfering innocent souls to build an army – the lines separating the worlds blur. Fates erase and the future is left unwritten. Azael is determined that he and his sister will continue to serve as demons together, but for the first time in her life, Pen is not ruled by destiny. She has the freedom of choice. 

With choice comes sacrifice, and Pen must decide which side she’s willing to risk everything fighting for: the light, or the dark.

***Interview***

Hi, Erica!

Hi! Thanks so much for having me!

 

1.What made you write Ignite? (How did the story come in to your mind?)

Most of my ideas for writing come to me in the middle of the night. Luckily, I keep a notebook on my nightstand so I can write it down so I don’t forget it in the morning. One night, I remember waking up from this weird dream of this girl standing in the middle of an insane asylum covered in blood, but the girl wasn’t a girl at all, she was a demon. But there was something about her that didn’t seem particularly dangerous, even though she obviously was lethal. And then I became thinking – how did all demons become demons? Are there some reluctant demons, some that are maybe not all bad? I had been wanting to write something with mythology/angels and demons, and when I woke up, I knew this was the idea I needed to run with.

 

2.If you were a character (from your book) witch one would you be? Why?

I am a bit of each character, I think. They each have a trait of mine, in some way. Pen’s love of literature and her spunk, Michael’s curiosity, Azael’s sarcasm… But if I could choose to be one, I think I’d want to be Pen. She’s really kind of a badass, and she’s got great memory. She can literally remember every line from every book, poem or journal she’s read. Plus she can throw knives.

 

3.Can you tell us something about „Entice”?

I’m really excited about Entice. It’s an e-novella prequel to Ignite, going back to the final battle in the war, where Michael was slain, and follows Pen and Az after they first fall from grace. It explains how the two got to where they are in Ignite and gives readers more of their backstory. It also follows them in Eden.

 

4.How did you became an author?

I’ve always wanted to write, since I was a little kid. When I was in preschool, I would write or tell stories for my friends, and then I started writing short, 1-page poems on our family’s one computer just so I could decorate it with clipart (that, at the time, I was very proud of knowing how to do). My grandmother actually had this binder filled with my short stories and poems I had written her, and it’s really funny to look through and remember how excited I was about what I was writing. I never thought I’d actually get the chance to do anything with what I’ve written, but I decided to take a leap and leave behind the more “secure” communications degree for one in Creative Writing and English. And then, well, I just started writing. That’s really the first step to becoming an author: WRITE. Write everything, no matter how horrible it is. You’ll have to trunk a majority of these stories, but if you throw enough spaghetti against the wall, eventually some will stick. (Is that a saying? Ah, it is now!) That’s what happened with Ignite. I was really excited about the characters and the project, and I spent the time polishing it and getting it published. It’s a lot of work and can be extremely exhausting, but if it’s something you’re passionate about, it’s worth it, 100%.

 

5.Who do you picture playing the roles of your characters if it were to become a movie?

I love fancasting! It’s so much fun imagining what my characters would look like on screen, or how some of the scenes would translate. I tend to write from a visual perspective, so I see a scene play out in my head as I’m writing a chapter, and I would flip out (in a fantastic way) to see it come to life. So, on to fancasting…

Kaya Scodelario as Pen. I first saw her in Skins as Effy, and she was amazing. She can capture a character’s wide range of emotions – from unruly and wild to broken – which is critical with Pen. She also has an edge to her that, I think, would play really well. She’s beautiful and has the coolest voice.

Asher Book as Azael. I don’t remember how I came across Asher Book, but I remember seeing a picture of him and running around the house saying I found Az! He looks almost exactly how I imagine Azael in my head, and he and Kaya look like they could be siblings!

Hunter Parrish as Michael. I saw Hunter in Weeds and was instantly in love with him. He’s funny, smart, and a great actor. Plus, he seems very genuine, and I think he could bring a lot to Michael’s character, as an angel who is new and trying to figure out what he thinks right and wrong really is.

Andrew Garfield as Gus. Oooh, Andrew Garfield. I’ve had a crush on him since Doctor Who, and then I saw him in Never Let Me Go and he made me cry. In Spiderman, he sealed the deal. He’s funny and has amazing depth as an actor. I also think he would play off Asher (Az) well, since they have a really funny dynamic on page.

Candice Accola as Lilith. We don’t see much of Lilith in the book, but she’s an important character and will be making her presence known in book 2. Candice Accola is soooo gorgeous and a really funny, strong actress. She has this power to her delivery (as you can see in her portrayal of Caroline in Vampire Diaries). Lilith is described as being very pale with white-blonde hair. I think Candice would portray Lilith’s backstory really well and add something so interesting to her character!

Eddie Redmayne as Lucifer. Lucifer doesn’t make his appearance until the very end of Ignite, but he’s mentioned throughout the book and, if it were to be a movie, I’m sure we’d check in with him, Gus and Lilith every now and then to see how things are going on their end. The first movie I saw Eddie Redmayne in was My Week with Marilyn and how could I resist him? I would love to see him play a dark character like Lucifer, and see how he would interact with Hunter (Michael).

 

… Can I cast a director too? Because I would love to see Tim Burton interpret the book to film. He has such an interesting dark quirk about him that I think would lend beautifully to the text. His eye for cinematography is superb (have you seen Corpse Bride and the beautiful colors?). He also, I think, has a really deep understanding of the characters and story. He’s a genius.

 

 

6.Is there anything about you that would surprise your readers?

I was considering going into Forensic Anthropology. I thought it would be a really interesting field, but, alas, I don’t get along as well as I wish to with science and math. My freshman year of college, I took a course and had to memorize every bone of the body and study different ways people could be murdered. It actually gives me some insight into different kinds of violence (with daggers, swords, hatchets, whips, etc.) and is helpful when writing action or fight scenes and explaining an injury.

 

It was nice to meet you, Erica. And now, some words for Romanian readers!

Thanks again! Hello Romania!!! Sper că vă bucuraţi-vă aprindă! Mulţumesc pentru citire! (Boy I hope I wrote that right!)

Yep, I mean, no… sorry Erica. We know you tried to say „I hope you enjoy „Ignite”! Thanks for reading!”, thank you for trying to translate, and thank you for sending me your book(ebook)!!!

Some words about Ignite

I think that Erica Crouch’s writing style made the book one hell of an adventure. This book was a fun, quick read, and I enjoyed it in spite of myself. I loved every tiny bit of this book (Michael, Gus, etc haha)! I read it in almost 2 days, and believe me when I say that I didn’t sleep until I finished it -it made me sad,but I don’t have what to do… She wasn’t too descriptive, giving enough for the reader’s imagination to feed upon. It kind of surprised me in many ways. I was always trying to guess wath will happen next – sometimes I was pretty close, then I got angry and curious. There was enough action to keep me turning the pages, and enough romance to leave me thinking about it when I went to bed at night. I really loved the main character, Pen, a demon who falls in love with an angel.

Ignite Quotes

“Yes, Hell is very serious business. That’s why no one ever smiles down there.”

“There is a steady dripping sound of yesterday’s rain sliding down branches and splashing on rocks, into the stream, or onto the soft ground. Periodically, there is a loud chirp from a bird that flits from branch to branch, answered later by a bright melody from its unseen companion. Behind these noises is a quieter, humming sound. I follow the humming, walking soundlessly under branches and over flat, slippery rocks. I keep walking until I come up to a grouping of thinned trees that let sunlight come streaming down onto a small patch of ground that is covered in dry, coppery pine needles.”

FallForMeTourBannerSome words about Fall for me:

My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy. William Shakespeare – Romeo & Juliet, Act I, Scene V
K. A. Last. Fall For Me (The Tate Chronicles #1) 

Fall For Me tells the story of Grace, and angel sent to earth to protect a family lineage from harm. When she takes a chance and disobeys the ultimate rule (Thou shalt not help vampires) things in Grace’s life start to change: everything from her friends, to her potential lover, Josh, to her very own self.

The characters each have their own individuality, but some of them got my attention: Archer – Grace’s twin brother and Josh – the one that seems to be shy but in reality he isn’t and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind either.

This book has plenty of twists and turns with moments that will shock you and leave you eagerly anticipating the next chapter of what has started out as a wonderful series. I have to say that the love triangle thing isn’t usually for me but, this book was AwesomE!

Oh, one more thing, I really love this cover.

“We have to go back now,” she whispered. He knew it was true, but he didn’t want to leave. Not yet. This would be the last time he saw her this way, possibly the last time he would see her at all, and he wanted the moment to stretch on forever. “Just a few more minutes,” he said. “I’m sure they won’t mind.” “They see everything, we should be back already.” She was right, she was always right. For a moment they stood gazing into each other’s eyes, and he wanted what he couldn’t have, wanted it so much it hurt. He almost told her there and then exactly how he felt, but instead he hardened his heart.

“Fly with me first?” he asked. She hesitated, then smiled and nodded.

Hidden
Hidden by M. Lathan 
Series: Hidden, #1 
Publication date: November, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal
Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Leah Grant has given up on being normal. She’d settle for stopping the voices in her head, intrusive visions of the future, and better odds of making it to her seventeenth birthday.
That’s the thing about pretending to be human in a world where magic used to exist – at any moment, her cover could be blown and she’ll be burned to death like the rest of the witches.
Everything changes when she loses control of her powers and flees the orphanage she grew up in. She desperately wants to be invisible but finds her face plastered on every news channel as humans panic over the possible resurgence of her kind. And now the hunters won’t give up until they find her.
Making friends for the first time in her life and falling in love with one of them drives her to discover why she is unlike any being she’s ever met – human or otherwise. The dangerous powers inside of her that would repel Nathan, her new, handsome reason for living, are priceless to some. The locked up forever kind of priceless. And to others, they are too dangerous to allow her to live.

Let’s hope she can stay hidden.

Some words about „Hidden” :

„I understood why she wanted to kill me. I didn’t belong here in the first place. The world would be better off without me in it. I closed my eyes, torn between wanting to escape and wanting it to be over. I should have been more prepared. I’d known for years what face I’d see in my final moments, but no power of mine could have predicted what would lead me here.”
M. Lathan. Hidden (Hidden Series Book One)  

Hidden is written in first person, from Christine’s point of view. Reading this book was like reading someone’s diary, which was kind of awkward but hey! now I can say that I’m a bad girl- a rude one! Never mind…

Well, I loved the relationship between Leah and Nathan. It was nice actually watching their relationship start out as a friendship. But! It was a fast one. I wanted to be, I don’t know, a little complicated maybe? It was like „Oh, hey, I don’t know you but I love you!”.

There is a lot to like in this book. M. spins a suspenceful tale with just the right amount of romance! Strong character profiles and interesting details made for an incredible read. „Hidden” is full of emotions that will make you angry, sad, happy and take a breath when you didn’t realize you were holding it. The storyline is a bit mystery, and a bit teen drama, but it’s a good, fun read.

The rest of the story was perfect! Congrats M. Lathan!

„I watched the chaos and the school shrink to nothing as we pulled away from it. I sighed, happy this whole mess was finally over. Emma held a tube of lip-gloss to her lips like a microphone. “Leah slash Christine slash Cecilia, what do you have to say to the people of the world. Certainly, you don’t appear to be a kidnapping victim? What have you been doing?” Everyone laughed at her fake reporter voice. She held the lip-gloss microphone to me, and I smiled. “Um … I’ve been away, figuring myself out,” I said. “And I’m not so bad.” „

Hush – A Lakeview Novel ( Book 1) by Stacey R. Campbell

Hush - A Lakeview Novel  ( Book 1)

For small-town girl Blakely Henry, any hope of finding her biological parents died when she stopped believing in fairy tales and Disney princes. That is, until she spots her boarding school’s new British exchange student, Max Ryder, staring at her. Why would a boy who looks like he stepped out of the pages of a magazine be looking at her? Because Max knows something Blakely doesn’t.
Following the tragic demise of one of Europe’s most beloved royal families, Max has stumbled upon information he thinks may lead to a lost royal heir, and now he is on a quest halfway around the world to see if he’s right.
Sworn to secrecy by his university professor and the headmaster of Lakeview Academy, Max is admitted into an exchange program with the sole purpose of finding out the truth. But will his personal feelings for Blakely get in the way?
When a stolen email surfaces, Blakely and her friends’ lives are threatened, and Max starts to question what he is really after.
From the exclusive rolling lawns of Canada’s most prestigious boarding school to the University of Saint Andrews’ hallowed grounds, Blakely’s quiet, unassuming life is turned upside down. Is she really who she thinks she is? Can she survive long enough to help Max unearth the truth?

I received a copy from NetGalley.

My opinion: 

Well… I’ve got to say… The title of the book undoubtedly first caught my attention.

There is a lot to like in this book. Amazing book! This author is truly gifted in many ways! She is a dyslexic person just so you know. But who cares?  She spins a suspenceful tale with just the right amount of romance! Strong character profiles and interesting details made for an incredible read. The storyline is a bit mystery, and a bit teen drama, but it’s a good one, fun read.

I  recommend this book to everyone!!!

And yes, there are plans for at least 2 more Lakeview novels, and I’m soooooo curious!

I love this part:

”      Dear Blakely,

       I’m sorry. I really am. I never meant to hurt you. I wanted to tell you. You deserved to know the truth, but by the time I got to know you well enough I was in too deep. I knew you’d never forgive me and I couldn’t risk losing you.

      I meant every word I told you the other night. I think I’ve loved you from the start. I think it’s what made me want to come to Lakeview in the first place. I just had to get to know you. I don’t know how else to explain it. Then things got crazy. It wasn’t supposed to end this way.

     I hope that you can forgive me.

     I know we have no future, not now, but someday maybe you can look back and smile at what we did have.

                                            Max”

School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

School Spirits (School Spirits, #1)

Killing a vampire is actually a lot easier than you’d think.I know movies and TV make it look really hard, like if you don’t hit the right spot, it won’t work. But the truth is, those are just rumors to make themselves seem thoughet. If everyone knew how easy is to kill a vamp, there wouldn’t be so many movies and TV shows and stuff. All it takes is a wooden stake and enogh pressure to send it through the chest cavity. Doesn’t really matter if you hit the heart or not.
See so easy.
But capturing a vampire? Yeah, that’s a little bit tougher.
 
 

Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy’s mom decides they need to take a break.

Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who’s always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.

Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?

Izzy Brannick nu este o adolescenta obisnuita, acelasi lucru se poate spune si despre familia ei. De secole intregi, familia Brannick  este cunoscuta  in lumea monstrilor (sau Prodigium) pentru a ceea ce erau – vanatori. In ultimul timp situatia celor 3 Brannick (Izzy, Finn- sora sa si Aislinn- mama lor) ramasi in viata ,nu a fost tocmai roz. Izzy aproape fusese omorata de un vampir, cu un an in urma Finn disparuse in timpul unei vanatori de vrajitoare,  iar Aislinn isi petrecea cel mai mult timp printre carti, cautand indicii in cazul „fiica disparuta”. Dar ce faci cand mama ta considera ca nu esti destul de puternica pentru cazurile grele, si in schimb, te pune sa vanezi o fantoma ce bantuie liceul Mary Evans? Izzy cu greu accepta, dar in final se gaseste inconjurata de prieteni, si cumva incepe sa ii placa viata unui adolescent normal, asta pana cand afla ca unul  dintre prietenii ei, dragutul si „cavalerul” Dex nu este 100% un om viu. Oare Dex este si el Prodigium? Ce se va intampla cu el, daca ii spune mamei sale ce crede? Dar cum sa fie baiatul de care se indragostise un monstru cand el are astm? Parca monstrii nu se imbolnaveau….

Dupa succesul avut cu seria „Hex Hall”, Rachel Hawkins revine cu o noua serie- „School Spirits”. Primul volum din aceasta serie apare pe 14 Mai in S.U.A. (Disney Hyperion). Sincera sa fiu, nu am mai citit pana acum nimic scris de Rachel, S.S. fiind prima si chiar mi-a placut( merita 4 Luni din 5). Asa ca, daca aveti nevoie de o carte care sa va faca sa radeti  alegeti S.S.. Thank you Rachel for sending me this amazing book!

Why was hunting monsters less scary than waiting by a freaking stop sign in the suburbs?
„Remember, main thing today is just to start getting yourself situated. Head down-„
„Eyes open”. I finished for her. That might as well have been the Brannick family motto.
 
 
She turned back, and for the first time seemed to notice Dex. „Who is this?”
„I’m Dexter O’Neil, Mrs. Brannick.”, Dex said, offering his hand to shake. „And I’m hoping you’ll adopt me.” Mom looked back and forth between the two of us before muttering, „I need a drink”, and walking out of the room.
