The Sword of Shannara
Author - Terry Brooks
Series - The Original Shannara Trilogy #1
Genre - High Fantasy
Pages - 726 







Description from Goodreads 

Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.


As I read reviews for this book I noticed that people took two different but distinct direction when writing about it. One was those that generaly liked the book like me, the others where those that said it was too reminiscent of Tolkien and thus, a bad book. Both sides have ther merit and both are correct and true. It IS a good book and it IS Toklien-esque.

 At first glance you may be daunted by the sheer length of this novel, 700+ pages is quite a bit to read (it took me six days!) but the content delivered within will keep you hooked until the very last pages. Granted the story is nothing new: Good guy goes on quest to find magical artifact that is the only thing that an destroy the big bad evil bent on world destruction. 

While some of the descriptions were overbearing and far too long the world that Brooks has created is lovely. Sprawling grasslands, misty, dreadful marshes and wastelands were nothing can grow or prosper, it was marvelous. The races of the world are also vast and noteworthy. I especially loved the dwarf Hendel, he was my favorite character. There are the enemy gnomes and trolls, the skull bearers, elves and of course, humans. 

 One of our main characters is just that. Flick the human along with his half elf brother Shea are our tasked heros. The must find the Sword of Shannara (big suprise there right?) before the Warlock Lord can amass and send his armies toward the the innocent people of the southlands. 

While the characters themselves do not really have descriptive backgrounds they are well endowed with thier own personalities. You have the loyal Flick, the adventurous Menion Leah, the steadfast Hendel, the elf brothers Durin and Dayel who are both serious and boyish and more. 

Altogether even though it brings nothing new, the package is a complete and well rounded out epic fantasy.

WoW - Steelheart

Steelheart 
Author - Brandon Sanderson
Series- Reckoners #1
Genre  - High Fantasy
Pages - 384


Description from Goodreads 

There are no heroes.

 Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. 

 But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. 

Nobody fights the Epics... nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them.

 And David wants in. He wants Steelheart—the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father. For years, like the Reckoners, David's been studying, and planning—and he has something they need. Not an object, but an experience.

 He's seen Steelheart bleed. And he wants revenge.

Why? 

Well, It sounds awesome! Sanderson is praised for his other books and I want to know what all the hype is about.

Top Ten Tuesday


Top 10 unique character names in books

1. Zhukora - I fell in love with this name from the moment I heard it. It is the perfect bad guy name. I even have taken it for my MMO name. 

2. EBN-Reyoz-X - or EBN for short. It is so scifi!

3. Ten Ox - Old chinese names can be fun at times but some are just odd. Who wants to be called Ten Ox? I guess Oxen are strong so it could be a male pride thing. 

4. Drizzt Do'Urden - I pronounced his name wrong for years. It is actually pronounced Drisst (like Mist) One of my favorite characters ever. 

5. Menolly - It is just an awesome name and I would name a pet after her. 

6. Magiere - It sounds so ... noble and royal. 

7. Sirantha - Another scifi name, where the authors come up with these I do not know but I love them. 

8. Snow Flower - I adore names like this, intimate objects can make the best names. It is so pretty.

9. Aliizsa - I always find epic fantasy novels to have the best unique names.

10. Breunor Battlehammer - Dwarfs. 'nuff said.

The Eternity Cure
Author - Julie Kagawa
Series - Blood of Eden #2
Genre - YA Paranormal
Pages - 434



Description from Goodreads 

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally. 

 Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.


The race for the cure for rabidism continues in the second installment of the Blood of Eden series. Allie is now on two missions, find her sire Kanin and find a cure for the rabidism, but there are hurdles to overcome. Along with the psychotic vampire Sarren, the rabids, the vampire princes and other enemies there are new ones: The Bleeders. 

The Bleeders are humans affected with the red lung disease, a disease that turns them into crazed, raveing maniacs that have lost their minds and most of their skin (ew). They don’t feel pain and they will go after you until you or they are dead. 

Allie is not alone in these missions however, she has Jackal though not the best companion he is her blood brother and to find Kanin and the cure she will need him. She also has Zeke, the human she has found herself falling for. He has changed from The Immortal Rules, he is no longer a meek skinny boy, he is now a warrior, armed to the teeth and out for blood. 

I enjoyed The Eternity Cure almost as well as The Immortal Rules. There is some action, some romance this time around and tons of blood and gore. Some of Allies actions and reactions I could have done without but she is just new to the vampire scene. I really liked Jackal this time around, yes he is still a jerk and is always pushing peoples buttons but when it comes down to it he is a good person to have around. 

So if you enjoyed The Immortal Rules I certainly think you will enjoy the Eternity Cure.

WoW - Daylighters


Daylighters
Author - Rachel Caine
Series - Morganville Vampires #15
Genre - Ya paranormal
Pages - NA
Release Date - November 5th 2013

Description from Goodreads 

Something drastic has happened in Morganville while Claire and her friends were away. The town looks cleaner and happier than they’ve ever seen it before, but when their incoming group is arrested and separated—vampires from humans—they realize that the changes definitely aren’t for the better. 

It seems that an organization called the Daylight Foundation has offered the population of Morganville something they’ve never had: hope of a vampire-free future. And while it sounds like salvation—even for the vampires themselves—the truth is far more sinister and deadly. 

 Now, Claire, Shane and Eve need to find a way to break their friends out of Daylighter custody, before the vampires of Morganville meet their untimely end…


Why? I ADORE the Morganville Vampires books, I do not read YA that much anymore but it is one series I have been keeping up with.The cover is also one of my favorites to date.

Turn- Offs you encounter while reading.



Love Triangles! Really I can not stand them, choose one guy and stop being so selfish. Unless of course all three agree to the triangle like in the Otherworld series by Yasmine Galenorn. However, this rarely happens.




 Love at first sight. I understand it CAN happen but it is so rare in the real world that in book world you just kind of go "ugh" at it.



Goth Bashing. Yes I am a goth and yes I do get annoyed at the stereotypical assumptions that we are bad, we do drugs, smell, steal, etc..etc.. Not all of us are delinquents and not all of us wear the black makeup (okay i wear the clothes..) or dye our hair. I think the only one I have seen in books that does not match these descriptions is Eve from Morganville Vampires.. 



Unnecessarily long books. Now do not get me wrong, I love my epic fantasies but sometimes there are just pages and pages of descriptions or whole scenes that just do not do anything for the book and thus do not need to be there! 




My BIGGEST - Puppy pain. I absolutely hate it when a dog dies in a book or gets hurt. I have actually stopped reading a book because of this (the dog died.. or rather was torn apart) and I cried. Why the violence against dogs? Why not cats (sorry cat people) It just makes me so incredibly sad and I have to hug my dog afterwards.


Okay those are my top annoyances and turn-offs to books. what are yours?

Secrets of the Wolves
Author - Dorothy Hearst
Series - Wolf Chronicles #2
Genre - Anthropomorphic fiction
Pages - 384


Description From Goodreads 

The rules of the Wide Valley wolves were clear: Never consort with humans; never kill a human unprovoked; never allow a mixed-blood wolf to live. But they were rules destined to be broken. 

Now, in the second riveting installment of The Wolf Chronicles the stakes are higher than ever. Young Kaala of the Swift River pack shattered the rules of the valley and exposed the lies hidden beneath them. Now, responsibility for the consequences rests with her. Along with her young packmates and the humans they have befriended, she must find a way for the wolves and humans of the Wide Valley to live in harmony. If they succeed, Kaala will finally prove herself worthy of her pack. But if she fails, the Greatwolves who rule wolf-kind will kill every wolf and human in the valley. 

Told from the wolf's point-of-view and set 14,000 years ago in a time when the cultures of wolves and humans were not so different, Secrets of the Wolves transports us to a world where instincts are our only compass and cooperation between potential enemies could mean the difference between life and death.


Secrets of the Wolves left off where the last book ended. Kaala is till trying to unite the humans with the wolves and the Great Wolves are still trying to thwart her. This time though, there are many secrets the Great Wolves have hidden and its up to to Kaala to find them and keep the humans and wolves from warring with each other and destroying all that is in the Wide Valley.

 Kaala and her pack are back and really not much has changed. Kaala is still regarded as Drelshik (unlucky) and is shunned by some wolves but loved by others (Azzuen, Marra, Pell) and of course the humans NiaLi and TaLi. This time the Great Wolves have given Kaala and her group a challenge: Make the humans accept the youngwolves into their homes by 3 moons past or else all the wolves in the wide valley will die by Great Wolf teeth and claws and everything will go back to the way it was, with wolves ignoring humans and humans ignoring wolves.

 In the beginning it looks like Kaala and gang will succeed and I was so happy for them, until we learn that Malsindra, a great wolf will do anything to make sure they fail, even if it means driving the prey off! I was so discouraged because they were doing so well, wolf and human were hunting together and taking down big game, even sitting side by side at fires. 

Then we learn a great thing that Kaala and Tlitoo the raven can do and it got very interesting, and helps Kaala along her way to finding out the secrets the great wolves harbor. The ending though sets up very well for the third book and it had me reeling! I want to know what happens so badly! If you enjoy books told through the eyes of animals or mythical creatures then I believe this novel and the one before it will capture your attention and heart.

WoW - Hellhound

Hellhound
Author - Nancy Holzner
Series - Deadtown #5
Genre - Urban Paranormal
Pages - 336

They call it Deadtown: the city’s quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders—but Victory Vaughn, Boston’s only professional demon slayer, isn’t exactly human…

 Boston’s zombies have suddenly become inexplicably violent—horror movie-style—resulting in a catastrophic all-out battle against humans. More troubling to Vicky is that she’s had dreams and visions of herself fighting alongside the demons. At least, she hopes they’re just visions—otherwise, that puts her on the front lines of the wrong side of the war. 

 Vicky’s not surprised to discover that Pryce, her demi-demon cousin and loathed adversary, is behind the outbreak of the zombie plague, having formed an unholy pact with the Old Ones. Now, as the violence escalates and alliances shift, Vicky knows she’s the only one who can stop the plague. Unless the pack of hellhounds on her trail finds her first.


I have read every book up until this point and I have very much enjoyed it. Zombies and demons and a shapeshifter oh my! It is delightful.
Plus the cover is just so awesome, look at that cute puppy!

WoW - Black Arts

Black Arts
Author - Faith Hunter
Series - Jane Yellowrock #7
Genre - Urban Paranormal
Pages - 336
Release Date - January 7 2014


Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who always takes care of her own—no matter the cost... 

 When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. 

Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy—one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.


I just can not say enough about this series! I LOVE it. It has action, a touch of romance and is one of the only clean UPs I have come across. I am in no way a clean person but after swear words every sentence and sex rampant (blood doesn't bother me nor does gore or violence) you just want a good UP that is calm and serene in those aspects.

The Raft
Author - S. A. Bodeen
Series - Stand alone
Genre - Contemporary YA
Pages - 231


Description from Goodreads 

Robie is an experienced traveler. She’s taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, there’s a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesn’t panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft. 

 And then . . . she’s in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and that’s when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But there’s no sign of help on the way


Robie is a 15 year old girl who just wants to have a little fun alone. No parents, no AJ and no one to check on her, but after her first day alone all she wants to do is go home and leave Honolulu. However, one she steps foot on the plane that will take her back to Midway and home, her life Is changed forever and she will find herself struggling to survive in the middle of the ocean with only a raft and Max the copilot to help her.

 I read this book in one day, it is short but there is much packed within it. Robie is a believable character. A spoiled and somewhat selfish girl she has to learn to grow up and adapt quickly…or die. I found her vulnerability and thought process to be what a normal person who actually knows less to be like when faced with the same situation. It is terrifying and she did make mistakes and she did some things right, she gave up and she went on… she was not one dimensional. 

The twist about 70% in was a good one and I really did not expect it, I was pleasantly surprised the author pulled that on me. The author also does not skimp on the teaching of Mother Nature and the circle of life, things die and things survive and we should not turn from one trying to only see what we want to see. The end was good and I was glad I gave this book a shot, if you read it I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Top Ten Tuesday


10 books you would love to see as movies/shows


Who wouldn't want a movie or show with dark elves, orcs, dwarves, and other such fantastical creatures? Salvatore creates a majestic and wonderful world and it has long been my favorite series ever, even more than 16 books in!

I could not put this book down and I think that is my deciding factor to why this would make a kick ass movie.

It is just a beautiful romance/action novel set in the Tang Dynasty and I loved every minute of reading it. I enjoy Chinese fiction very much and Jeannie Lin is one of my favorite authors of that genre.

The concept of the book that the world is always changing, shifting and moving is so great and the characters you really fall in love with. It has action, a touch of romance and lots of magic and suspense.

Ok, sure, there are TONS of vampire novels in the world. However, this one add another element.. another monster to the tale. It is also very well written and I loved the action/romance.

I would like to see this movie REMADE. The had made this into a movie a few years ago but it was not what it should have been. I want a movie of this to be the masterpiece that the book was, I want to cry and swoon with emotion like I did when reading it.

Wicked tiny, bitey poisonous fae? YES!!

These books are quite funny and have a slew of different gods and goddesses as well as monsters in them. A talking dog, a sword wielding druid and more!

Dystopian! I do enjoy these types of books and this one was very well done.

Again vampires but there is also an elf, a dhampir, and a really, really smart pooch! There is action, intrigue and it is overall a really good book.

Changeling
Author - Yasmine Galenorn
Series - Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon #2
Genre - Urban Paranormal
Pages - 278


Description From Goodreads.

 Someone's been slaughtering the Weres of the Rainier Puma Pride, and my sisters and I have been enlisted to investigate by Zachary Lyonnesse, golden boy of the werepumas. Right away we smelled demon trouble, and we tracked it directly into the snare of the Hunters Moon Clan, sworn enemies of Puma Pride. But there's more than Were rivalry at work. It's that old demon Shadow Wing who is setting a deadly snare for the pumas. We have to find out why, which means a visit one to of the Immortals. 

Unfortunately, for my sisters and me, our half-human blood is just enough to put us in mortal danger." "At the Wayfarer Inn, a portal to Otherworld and the local hangout for humans and beasties alike, our fellow operative Jocko's been murdered. Every clue points to Shadow Wing, the soul-munching, bad-ass leader of the Subterranean Realms. He's made it clear that he aims to raze humankind to the ground, turning both Earth and Otherworld into his private playground. Our assignment: keep Shadow Wing and his minions from creeping into Earth via the Wayfarer. The demons figure they're in like Flynn. After all, with only my 'bumbling' sisters and me standing in the way, how can they miss? But we've got a secret for them: faulty wiring or not, nobody kicks ass like the D'Artigo girls.


The gang is back and this time a new enemy has surfaced. Imagine a world full of weres werepumas, werebears, werecats etc and now imagine your enemy is a troupe of were SPIDERS! Creepy right? They are just not any spiders though, they are hobo spiders; very, very venomous. 

Run Away!!!!

 The group is still searching for the seals and this time its Delilahs turn to tell the tale. I liked her voice mostly because when she transformed into her tabby cat form the perspective changes and it is more cat-like and sporatic. She also is going through some more changes, and its pretty cool. 

We are introduced to new characters that are pretty well rounded, Delilah is still with Chase which is nice and she seems very loyal to him albeit her half fae heritage. This book is a nice second installment to the first Witchling and if I am correct the next book Darkling is about the vampire Menolly and that should be quite interesting!

The Story of the Stone 
Author - Barry Hughart
Series - The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox #2
Genre - Fantasy
Pages - 289

Description From Goodreads.

 In the valley of Sorrows, a monk is brutally murdered for a worthless manuscript, and the abbot of the humble monastery calls upon Master Li and Number Ten Ox to investigate the seemingly senseless killing. The most likely suspect is the infamous Laughing Prince, founder of the valley, whose murderous frenzies have made him a legend. But even Master Li must concede that the prince has a pretty good alibi: he's been dead for more than seven hundred years. 

 Undaunted, Master Li and Number Ten Ox begin their search for the Laughing Prince. Together they roam a mystical countryside populated by demons, ghosts, murderers, and mad kings to the very gates of heaven itself -- and what they find there is even stranger still.


I do not know what went wrong here. The first book in the trilogy Bridge of Birds was a masterpiece, The Story of the Stone just fell short. The adventures they have in this book just can not compare and the storyline is overly complicated, at least to me. 

There are some new characters, Grief of Dawn and Moon Boy for example and they added a nice touch. I liked Moon Boy far better than Grief of Dawn but still she was good and the ending was sad and beautiful at the same time.

 Master Li is still smart and witty, Tex Ox is still the same big ox-like man and the strength of the team. Nothing has really changed in this installment and I was left disappointed for the most part.

The Better Part of Darkness
Author - Kelly Gay
Series - Charlie Madigan #1
Genre - Urban Paranormal
Pages - 416

 
Description from Goodreads 

Atlanta: it's the promised city for the off-worlders, foreigners from the alternate dimensions of heaven-like Elysia and hell-like Charbydon. Some bring good works and miracles. And some bring unimaginable evil.... 

Charlie Madigan is a divorced mother of one, and a kick-ass cop trained to take down the toughest human and off-world criminals. She's recently returned from the dead after a brutal attack, an unexplained revival that has left her plagued by ruthless nightmares and random outbursts of strength that make doing her job for Atlanta P.D.'s Integration Task Force even harder. Since the Revelation, the criminal element in Underground Atlanta has grown, leaving Charlie and her partner Hank to keep the chaos to a dull roar. But now an insidious new danger is descending on her city with terrifying speed, threatening innocent lives: a deadly, off-world narcotic known as ash. Charlie is determined to uncover the source of ash before it targets another victim -- but can she protect those she loves from a force more powerful than heaven and hell combined?


Charlie Madigan. Detective in the ITF, mother, and all around badass has died. How did she live? Well, she doesn’t really know. All she knows is somehow it has changed her. 

Better Part of Darkness starts out with a young girl who has ingested a new substance called ash. Ash is the new drug from the otherworlders, the magical creatures that have decided to come out of the woodworks and reside in our (human) world. You have your goodly mages and sirens and the like. Then you have your slightly less good jinn, goblins and abbadon nobles. But with everything, nothing is ever just black and white. 

While looking into the case of ash Charlies daughter Emma gets stolen and thus our adventure really picks up. 

 Not to say it wasn’t a good ride but about sixty to seventy percent through or so is when her daughter gets taken and that is when it gets very good. The beginning is good as well, the fights and plot twists are acceptable and the characters interesting although not very in-depth. 

Charlie is your usual hard and nails type with a soft side (she cries very easily, if fact I got a little sick of it by halfway through) but she was still a nice personality to have around, she is witty with her quips and really cares for her daughter and would do anything, anything for her. I also like that she doesn’t just fall into the powers she has and she is apprehensive of them . Her partner, Hank the siren is a good strong male role and I did enjoy his presence even if we never actually get to see him use his powers. 

The other characters such as her sister Bryn and the revenant Rex add a good touch. If there was one thing I would say brought the book down a bit was the lack of description. Not about the world or anything but about the characters, some of them really had no backgrounds, the bad guy especially. He is bad, that is it and no more. However this does not really deter from the enjoyment of the novel.

DETAILS ABOUT IMMORTALS


Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something… Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology but that doesn’t stop her from falling hard for him. 

Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her or that she saved him by making a deal with Norns—Norse destiny deities—the same Norns who have now erased his memories of their past together to punish her. 

So Raine comes up with a plan... She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. But before Raine can put her plan into action, the Norns return. This time, they demand she protects Eirik Seville, her best friend since childhood, from an evil so dark even the Norns are scared. But you know what they say about well-laid plans… 

Caught between protecting Eirik and convincing the stubborn, cocky Torin St. James that the two of them are meant to be together, Raine's life slowly unravels. Friendships are tested. Enemies become allies. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.
