My review of Erased, Vol. 4
Erased, Vol. 4Erased, Vol. 4 by Kei Sanbe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having finally come to the conclusion of Sanbe’s Erased I am emotionally drained, yet mu soul is satisfied. Having travel Satoru’s multiple paths through history I can honestly say I don’t think I have ever cried while reading a manga. I was so emotionally invested not only in Satoru’s life, but the lives of those he touched. The final volume of Erased bring a full and satisfying closure to the series. My emotions still raw I can’t think of anyone I wouldn’t recommend Erased to. Everyone should read it. It’s just that good. I would give it more stars if I were allowed.

Review and Giveaway: Unbreakable by Sara Ella

Unbreakable_cover-1

Unbreakable by Sara Ella is the phenomenal third and final installment in the Unblemished trilogy.

The story easily pulls you in from the moment Eliyana pulls herself up out of the gutter to find herself lost and alone with out a phone, ID or passport in a foreign land. The worlds are beautifully and vibrantly detailed making it easy to put yourself in her shoes and forget the world around you. Making Unbreakable even more appealing is the return of the love triangle between Eliyana, Joshua and Ky. It was hard to pick between the two of them. I think I changed side every other chapter.

All that said I did find some trouble reading Unbreakable. The pace to me was too slow, taking most of the book to resolve things from book 2. I also had mixed emotions on the ending. Although it brought closure it just wasn’t how I wanted to see it end.

Unbreakable is a part of a trilogy and is best when you read the Unblemished trilogy in order. This book does not make a good stand alone. Too much would be missed by a first timer to the world Ella created. Beautiful and poignant. You will laugh and you will cry. Have those tissues handy! I rate it 4 stars.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Unbreakable (Unblemished #3) by Sara Ella

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Release Date: May 1, 2018

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Synopsis:

Eliyana Ember is stranded in a foreign country in the Third Reflection with no pass-port, the inability to mirrorwalk, and zero clue where the nearest Thresholds back into the Fourth or Second might lie. Her mind is a haze, her memories vague. She knows a wormhole from the Fourth sent her here. She remembers her mom and baby brother Evan. Makai and Stormy and Joshua . . .Deep down El realizes she must end the Void once and for all. Is there a way to trap the darkness within its current vessel, kill itoff completely? To do so would mean sacrificing another soul — the soul of a man Joshua claims is a traitor. But he’s lied to her before, and even El senses Joshua can’t be fully trusted, but one thing is certain. . . The Void must be annihilated. And only the Verity—the light which birthed the darkness—can put an end to that which seeks to kill and destroy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Once upon a time, SARA ELLA dreamed she would marry a prince (just call her Mrs. Charming) and live in a castle (aka The Plaza Hotel). Though her fairy tale didn’t quite turn out as planned, she did work for Disney — that was an enchanted moment of its own. Now she spends her days throwing living room dance parties for her two princesses and conquering realms of her own imaginings. She believes “ Happily Ever After is Never Far Away” for those who put their faith in the King of kings.

Review of Nightingale by Amy Lukavics

NightingaleNightingale by Amy Lukavics
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

June Hardie is struggling to become a young woman in a typical suburban town in 1951. However, June is not a typical young woman destined to marry, have children, keep house and worship at her husbands feet. No, she is bound for greatness and she knows it. Driven to obsession she works night and day on her story. A story to set her free turned into the thing that destroys her.
Now commited to the Burrow Place Asylum she will find herself unknowingly moved toward her true purpose.

I found June to be an interesting and fiesty heroin. I think everyone will find a little piece of her within them. The story told in the present and past tense through alternating chapters slowly fleshes out the story and the true horrors of the asylum and June’s previous life.
Riviting and gory. A beautiful blend of sci-fi and horror. Amy Lukavics never fails to excite.
