SPOTLIGHT + GIVEAWAY AUDIO REVIEW TOUR~ OUTRUSH BY ERRIN STEVENS!!

Author: Errin Stevens

Narrator: Sean Posvistak

Publisher: Errin Stevens

Released: Jul. 17, 2019

Series: The Mer Chronicles, Book 3

Length: 11 hours 16 minutes

Genre: Romantic Fantasy

“Falling, falling…. Maya was airborne again, suspended between a landless platform above and an inscrutable expanse of water below.” Maya’s headlong rush into marriage isn’t working out…and it isn’t the only collision course she’s on these days. Her saltwater distractions aside, her father-in-law wants her gunned down for reasons unknown, and her pesky bodyguard – when he’s around – seems intent on drowning her in want and regret.

Maya is desperate to hold onto any small part of herself she understands. When escape becomes her only option, she finds herself in a race against a past – and a man – she can’t outrun.

Errin Stevens writes paranormal romantic suspense stories from her home in Minnesota. When not wrestling with unruly narrative – or reading literary and commercial fiction like a fiend – you’ll find her poring over seed catalogues (winter) or gardening (the other three days of the year).

Outrush is a very well written addition to this book. From the beginning curve balls were thrown at each of these characters. This strategy allowed for plenty of adventure and angst.

This installment focuses on Maya and her tangled web she began in the previous installment of the series. Aiden and Stuart both play pivotal parts in this story, as well as Stuart’s father. This installment brings more of a human spin on this book than I felt the other books did. Personally, I craved the sections that took me into fantasy siren land.

This installment also takes a detour into Peter’s life and clearly states that there is more information to come than what we have ever received on him in the past. That’s certainly something you don’t want to miss.

Errin Stevens did a good job with the writing of this installment. Stevens was able to portray such a variety of emotions through each character. Each scene draws the reader further in and keeps them intrigued. Sean Posvistak is an amazing narrator. Truly, when it comes to a book with tons of characters to differentiate and emotions at every turn you need a strong narrator and Posvistak is definitely that narrator.

Overall the production went quite well. I did get lost a few times, but I’m not sure if that was my audio after I paused and started back up or what. Overall, I liked this book. I wish I had seen a little more growth from Maya as a character, but the book and series make up a wonderful group of tales.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Errin Stevens. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

REVIEW TOUR + GIVEAWAY~ BREAKWATER BY ERRIN STEVENS!!

Author: Errin Stevens

Narrator: Sean Posvistak

Publisher: Errin Stevens

Released: Jul. 17, 2017

Series: The Mer Chronicles, Book 2

Length: 8 hours 39 minutes

Genre: Romantic Fantasy

The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.

For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one’s around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won’t do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation…

The solution doesn’t inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights – namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they’ll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.

Breakwater is AMAZING! I thought the first book was awesome, but the second one out did it by a mile.

This Mer Chronicle has truly surprised me time and time again. The characters growth is substantial, and you will fall deeper in love with each of them. Where a large part of the focus in the first book was on Kate and Gabe, this book expands way beyond them. Don’t fret though you are sure to get your fix of them too.

Errin Stevens really did an amazing job with this book. I feel like I experience shock after shock with this story. Errin truly outdid herself in this installment. Sean Posvistak did an amazing job with the narration as well. The emotion certainly was not lost in this story. I felt like I was right there with each character experiencing every adventure with them. The production overall went off without a hitch. Super amazing book for sure!

Seriously if you have not read the first book read it! If you have read the first installment, what are you waiting for? Seriously, had I waited to read this book I would have been disappointed that I hadn’t read it right away! Take a step into the adventures experiences by the Blake family and their friends. You won’t regret it!

BLOG TOUR~ SEALER’S GAME BY KATHY COLEMAN

Sealer’s Game
Kathy Coleman
(Sealer Saga #1)
Publication date: October 22nd 2019
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance

Hell hath no fury like a goddess scorned…

 

As Champion, Carita of Bel Auryn thought she would spend her days fighting demons. Instead, she is drawn into the latest scheme of the Moon Goddess, Ruby: a contest to choose a man who will have the “honour” of fathering her child. When Ruby encourages Carita to choose a man for herself, she picks the man she is most drawn to–and immediately regrets it.

Lucian Veradayne is the Lord of Death. He knows he must win Ruby’s game at any cost. It doesn’t matter that he has avoided her for two thousand years. Nor that she tried to kill their first child. And it really doesn’t matter that he would much rather woo Carita. The Soul Well has given Lucian a prophecy: he and Ruby must have another child. A child who will save the world.

Dealing with their mutual attraction will be the least of Lucian and Carita’s problems. They are not the only ones who have been drawn into Ruby’s game. Someone else wants to win. Someone who wants Ruby dead. Will Carita and Lucian be able to protect her long enough for a victor to be named? And if they succeed, will they be able to walk away from each other to ensure the prophecy is fulfilled?

Sealer’s Game is a 55,000 word fantasy romance novella about the King of the Underworld, a kick-butt warrior priestess, and a ruthless goddess who will stop at nothing to get her own way. It contains language, descriptions of violence, and sexual themes that may not be appropriate for all readers. Recommended for ages 18+.

Holy Crap! Seriously, I wasn’t expecting to fall as in love with the Sealer’s Game as I did. I am currently in that state of shock that the dang story is over… for now. I need the next part of the story like now! 

Obviously, based off of my previous words you can figure out that Kathy Coleman did an exquisite job writing this story. I hate what Carita has to go through, however she is truly a one of a kind woman and warrior. Each character is finely tuned and you won’t be left wanting more to fully understand each of them. You will definitely want more of the story though to figure what will become of each of them. This is such a great story in writing and lets just say I practically lived through the emotions portrayed on each page. I am trying really hard not to drop spoilers here so seriously this is just one book you absolutely have to read! I hope you fall as in love with the adventure as I have. Lucien, Carita, and Ruby have one of those adventurous stories full of turmoil, angst, love, and deceit you don’t want to miss.

Spotlight + Audio Excerpt + Review~~ The Fire Prophecy by Megan Linski and Alicia Rades!!!

Audiobook Tour: The Fire Prophecy by Megan Linski & Alicia Rades

Authors: Megan Linski & Alicia Rades

Narrators: Jennifer Jill Araya & Graham Halstead

Length: 15 hours and 3 minutes

Series: Academy of Magical Creatures, Book 1

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Released: Jul. 24, 2019

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Fire and water don’t mix.

Sophia: I’m Sophia Henley, your typical college freshman. I never expected a lion to be stalking me, nor for fire to come shooting out of my hands to protect my sister. Next thing I know, a drop-dead gorgeous guy shows up on my doorstep to sweep me away to a magical school, where I’ll learn to control my element and bond with a powerful creature called a Familiar.

I don’t believe I’m the savior of an ancient tribe, or the missing piece of a prophecy that’s more myth than reality. Worst of all, I’m forced to enter the Elemental Cup, where I’ll either earn my place in this society…or die trying.

Liam: The night I met Sophia, I didn’t think we’d form an undeniable connection. But I’m from the Water tribe, and she’s fire. I’m forced to push her away even as I’m falling for her.

I lost everything, yet Sophia makes me whole again. Our world is fixed on keeping us apart, but we’re in this tournament together. We have to keep each other alive at any cost – or I’ll give my life for hers.

It’s pretty clear. If I continue to play with fire, I’m going to get burned.

Holy Crap! Let me start out by saying this book is good. I mean to the point I immediate went and purchased the second installment. The characters completely have dynamic. I can’t lie and say that both Sophia and Liam were perfect because they certainly had their quarks. Luckily getting annoyed with a character is not new to me.

            When it comes to the writing of the story itself. I think Megan Linski and Alicia Rades did pretty dang good. I wish the characters had only been a little more decisive. I enjoy when we have a character that isn’t so wishy washy, and I feel both of our main characters had a ton of insecurities. There was some suspense mixed in that the authors did well with, however, I wish there was a bit more. It was a bit spread out here and there. Overall though the book was well written, and I never felt like I had to stop reading and just come back to it later, so that is certainly a plus.

            Now the narrators, Jennifer Jill Araya & Graham Halstead, did an amazing job. I feel they not only gave the characters the dynamic needed for this book to capture the reader, but they also brought life to each individual scene. I could definitely tell which character was in the lead in every individual scene. I feel I even learned quite a bit about our supporting characters.

            Overall, I am very pleased with the book. As I previously stated, I bought the second installment right away. I feel the production of the audiobook went off without a hitch so be rest assured I went for the audiobook the second time around as well. I haven’t had much of a chance to dive in completely to that book, but I definitely can not wait too. There is no doubt in my mind that any reader would enjoy this book as much as I did. It was such and fun read. I definitely think this book deserves 4 out of 5 stars.

Jazeen is a prisoner—not in a jail or a dungeon, but in her own home. Her parents, guilt-ridden since the death of their oldest daughter, never allow her out of the house except to attend school.

A chance encounter with Angus, an eccentric airship captain and retired wizard, is going to change all that, sending Jazeen’s life in an entirely unexpected direction. Thrust into a reality where magic isn’t make-believe and evil witches really do exist, Jazeen faces a hard choice when Angus is taken prisoner by a bounty hunter set on delivering him to the Black Witch.

Jazeen isn’t about to sit by and let her new friend face the Black Witch alone. She knows exactly what the witch wants and is willing to risk her life to offer a trade.

That is, of course, if Jazeen can cross The Great Ocean in Angus’s airship, a week-long trip made even more dangerous with Jazeen’s limited piloting hours. There she must track down and bargain with an evil witch who kills anyone who so much as disappoints her.

Jazeen might be strong enough and clever enough for this endeavor, or a painful death might be her only reward for her efforts.
