I was interested in reading the second book of this series after reading Moon Touched a few months ago. I read some other books by Elizabeth Briggs while I was waiting for this book to be released. So, I knew what to expect when it came to her writing. I think the Zodiac Wolves is the best series of hers that I have read. I wouldn’t put it among my all-time favorites, but I do find it really enjoyable. Especially if you want a shorter romance read with paranormal/fantasy elements.
Normally, I review books individually but I got so into reading The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout that I didn’t want to take a break to write reviews of each book. So, I decided to collectively review them similar to how I did with The Fair Isle trilogy… granted that one was because the books were combined. I enjoy the Blood and Ash and Flesh and Fire series from Jennifer L. Armentrout, so I thought I would read other series that she has published in the past. I was planning on reading The Harbinger series since that was another recent series of hers. But I saw it began with The Dark Elements series or at least one character came from there, so to avoid spoilers of that series I started with The Dark Elements.
October and my favorite holiday are over. A lot happened in October for me. A good portion of that was stressful. From my dad being put into assisted living and his power of attorney trying to guilt-trip my sister and me to talk to him for the first time in eight years (not going to happen), to listening to our old neighbors complain about squatters that moved into his foreclosed home, to almost losing my job… it’s been a bit much. Not that there weren’t other elements that I loved from this past month. I’ve had a blast being creative, read some great books, and enjoyed playing new games that I saw pieces of before. So, I thought I would reflect on the elements I loved from the last month as well as go over my goals from last month as well as the ones I have for this month.
City of Thorns by C.N. Crawford came up under my recommendations for Kindle Unlimited when I was looking for something new to read. The description seemed interesting and was recommended for readers that liked Laura Thalassa, Sarah J. Maas, and Jennifer L. Armentrout. All authors that I have enjoyed reading in the past. So, I thought I would give this book a go while I wait for new releases to come out that I’m looking forward to.
I love the Blood and Ash series from Jennifer L. Armentrout, so when it was announced she was going to be writing a prequel series called Flesh and Fire I wanted to read it. Especially since it hints at things that happen in the original series. Since the main focus of Flesh and Fire is on Nyktos and his consort, Seraphena (Sera). If you’ve read at least A Crown of Gilded Bones in the Blood and Ash series, you’ll already know the outcome of this series as Nyktos states what happened. However, this series focuses on getting to that point where Gods no longer could wander freely between their realm and the mortal one. And the supposed Dark Age mortals went into because of those events. I don’t think that the last part will be covered in this series, but we know it happens due to this series.
shing Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco, I wanted to continue on with the series right away. The second book is called Kingdom of the Cursed. Because I had to know what was going to happen once Emilia entered hell. Was Wrath going to let her go to Pride? Or is their engagement still a thing since the tattoo has not vanished. If anything, it had grown since Emilia attempted to call it off. And I can’t see Emilia ending up with Pride, her sin that she rapidly falls back on is aligned with wrath. The two are very similar to each other. So, I was curious to see what would happen between these two in the next installment.
