📚ARC Review: The Fae King’s Dream



I know, I know, it has been forever since you’ve heard a peep from me. Rest assured, I’m still reading and writing, life is just getting underfoot like a needy toddler. But here you have it, a brand spankin’ new review: The Fae King’s Dream by Jamie Schlosser!

REVIEW 



Another unique fantasy romance from Jamie Schlosser! 


I love revisiting old characters and getting to know them even better. We had an introduction to wisecracking Damon in The Fae King’s Curse. His fated mate is as strong willed as he is. 


Whitley and Damon fall in love quickly (fated, of course) its their talents and circumstances that draw you into the story. Their particular magical talents compliment each other so well it’s kinda like they were made to fit together like puzzle pieces.


We also get more witches in this one. The evil coven that are still trying to get their revenge on the fae royalty but also more of Astrid. She has become one of my favorite characters but Maisel the sprite takes first place. 


The tension is high throughout  making it pretty much impossible to put down. There is also a part that had me sniffling into my N95 during break at work. I recommend tissues, chocolate, and something to snuggle during that part. 


I can’t wait to get my hands on Zander’s book! I’m betting it’s going to be epic!

📚REVIEW📚 Blood and Pitch

Blood and Pitch (Mab's Doll Book 3) by [Rebekah Jonesy]Blood and Pitch by Rebekah Jonesy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better!

I was super excited to read a story about kelpies with a brand new (at least to me) mythology.

Pitch and Gillian are the best of partners and Pitch is so much fun. I love how his wordless communication comes across on the page.

I love the variation of fae they encounter and what different ending each story has. I can’t wait for more!

📚REVIEW📚 Between Dawn and Dusk & The Fae King's Curse


Okay, before we dive into this review, let me just tell you, I was already a fan of Jamie Schlosser's new adult contemporary romances. They're sweet and spicy and I want to adopt all the characters, cook them supper, and let them know they're all loved. My sentiment is a bit different towards her fantasy romance is a bit different and I love it! I don't want to adopt them, but hanging out with them on the page has been absolutely amazing! So without further ado, here are my reviews for both Between Dusk and dawn: A Prequel and The Fae King's Curse. 

Oh, wait! No, first I need to comment on these covers! I mean, just look at them. Between Dawn and Dusk is spectacular and I need it in my paperback collection ASAP. And then you get the crown again on The Fae King! The colors and everything tie together perfectly. I love them so hard!!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! *deep breath* Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I need The Fae King’s Curse right now!

Okay, got that out of my system.

I LOVED Between Dawn and Dusk! I’ve been a fan of Ms. Schlosser’s books for some time now, so when I heard she was writing some fantasy romance books, I was ecstatic! Fantasy was my first love and romance is my second, so to have one of my favorite romance authors combine the two is epic.

Zella is a strong female lead, bound by her status and nationality. I loved seeing her come into her own throughout the narrative.

The story feels a bit like an old school sword and sorcery type fantasy but as you dig deeper into it you get a bit of portal fantasy with a glimpse of our world in there, which makes me so excited to see what the next book brings!

Then you get Keryth, King of the Night Realm, aka, the male lead which brings you fated mates. He is definitely a Jamie Schlosser man, confident with a heart of gold.

But yeah, I need The Fae King’s Curse in my greedy little hands ASAP!

The Fae King's Curse by Jamie Schlosser
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Um, yes!

Like all of Ms. Schlosser’s books, I devoured The Fae King’s Curse. But this one is different than the others.

Yes, you have the male lead that has a heart of gold and a heroine that’s strong and kind (that’s really surface level, but you get the point) but then you add in magic realms, the fae royalty, curses, good and evil witches, sibling rivalry, fated-mates, and so much more, and you get one hell of a page-turner!

My first literary is fantasy. I love exploring new worlds, possibilities, and new rules. I’m a huge fan of ‘what if?’ and all that follows.

My second love is romance. The thrill of the characters falling in love, feeling their heartbreak, and happiness. Romance can be both the most realistic and the most fantastic genre there is.

This fantasy romance is a match made in heaven, my ultimate literary couple.

If you love fairies but want a tougher & grittier version, then King Kirian is your man. And let’s not forget Quinn, who is strong, resilient, and loving as the ultimate (human) female lead. Yes, the fae are beautiful, but our heroine is unique. The outcast and the dreamers will find a bit of themselves in her.

And of course, there’s a whole slew of supporting characters, but I won’t get into them, because, frankly, I can’t without getting spoiler-y!

If your a romance reader, but want to try something a little outside the normal Paranormal Romance tropes, then this one for you.

If you are a high fantasy fan that wants a little more love in their life, then this book is for you too!

If you just plain love a book with an exciting plot, lovable/relatable characters, or just need to get out of a funk, this is definitely for you!

I can’t wait until the next book in the series lands in my hands!

📚REVIEW📚 A Wisp of Catastrophe

A Wisp of Catastrophe (Cirque du Shadow Book 3) by [Brock, Miranda]A Wisp of Catastrophe by Miranda Brock
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An ending that’s more of a new beginning for Cirque Du Shadow!

We met Mia and Usagi at the beginning of the trilogy and the pair seems a bit sinister at first, but you quickly learn their partnership is more of a tragedy.

In Wisps of Catastrophe, we get the truth from these two characters, plus so much more! If you’ve read the other books and were as fascinated by Iris and Irwin as me, buckle in, because you’re gonna find out!

We also get to visit with the MCs from the past two books. However, because of Usagi’s curse, this is the only book in the series not told through dual perspectives.

Miranda Brock has brought this supernatural circus to life and gave it a great ending!

📚REVIEW📚 Mercy Brown, Part 2

Mercy Brown: A Dystopian Vampire Saga Part Two by [Kos, Tiki]Mercy Brown, Part 2 by Tiki Kos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We dive right into the apocalypse with book 2!

While discovering the fates of some characters from book one, Mercy makes some interesting discoveries about herself and what she is. (I’d love to dig more into her heritage, hopefully in future books)

A road trip brings her from the heat of Nevada to winter in Montana, where she struggles to discern who to trust, old friends and new.

I love the feel of the narrative, diving deeper into zombie type creatures and meeting some possibly good vampires.

I’m hoping a certain character’s end is a misleading one, and they’ll show up again! In the mean time, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for book 3!

📚REVIEW📚 Mercy Brown, Part 1

Mercy Brown: A Dystopian Vampire Saga by [Kos, Tiki]Mercy Brown, Part 1 by Tiki Kos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a fast-paced novella that falls somewhere between Twilight and The Walking Dead.

✔️Romantic vampires
✔️Evil vampires
✔️The world as we know it coming to a sticky end

I was familiar with the name Mercy Brown as a historical figure (way back when they thought she was a vampire, exhumed her body, and burned her heart) This story takes Mercy Brown into the modern world. She isn’t a vampire, but she’s definitely something!

As with all of Tiki’s heroines, Mercy is a survivor who can and will do whatever it takes, my favorite kind of FMC!

Then there’s the broody new boy at school that all the popular girls are throwing themselves at, that takes a liking to our Mercy.

Seems like the perfect set up for a teen romance, right? WRONG! If you’re squeamish with blood and guts, this book isn’t for you, but if you like a good dose of horror to take over, then you’ll devour this one.

I immediately started the second book in the series as soon as I hit the last page in this one, but I’ll get back to you about that one later (50% in and I can’t put it down!)
