My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jennifer L. Armentrout's second book in the prequel series to Blood and Ash (Flesh and Fire) was finally released. I was curious about what would happen in A Light in the Flame because the last time we left off, Sera was about to die unless she was Ascended by Nyktos through love. Something we quickly learn he is not capable of because he had that part of his soul removed years ago. Furthermore, the two are still figuring out how to deal with each other after the truth about Sera's upbringing was revealed in A Shadow in the Ember.…

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

While I could post a review about every book in The Bonds that Tie series by J Bree, I didn't want to put them down or pause reading to do so. I enjoyed the series that much (spoiler alert). So, I'm just going to combine them all together as I have done with other series that captivated my attention to this extent. I originally discovered this series through TikTok, but only ever heard that they were fantastic without any real details around the plot which I appreciate so I could go into the series without there being spoilers. I love discussing the details of a book as much as the next person especially when it's a good book, but I don't like knowing those details until I've gotten a chance to experience it for myself. Case and point Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, I still haven't finished that series due to the fact I know everything that's going to happen and it makes me not want to pick up the next book. So, with that being said, I'm not going to be going into heavy details about the books, so there will be no spoilers here while I share my thoughts on this series. …

Book Review: From These Dark Depths (Aisling Sea, Book 2) by Vanessa Rasanen

Book Review: From These Dark Depths (Aisling Sea, Book 2) by Vanessa Rasanen

The second book in the Aisling Sea trilogy by Vanessa Rasanen is similar to the first book, From These Dark Depths in that it ends on a cliffhanger and features multiple POVs in the third person limited style. This series has been compared to Black Sails and Throne of Glass. While I haven't read Black Sails, I can see the Throne of Glass parallel. They are on the hunt for a magical dagger that will aid them in defeating a corrupt ruling body. Not to mention the presence of fae, sirens, and other mythical creatures.…

My Thoughts on Glow (The Plated Prisoner Series, Book 4) by Raven Kennedy

Glow is the fourth installment in the reimaging of the King Midas myth series called The Plated Prisoner. It takes place immediately following the events of Gleam, so spoiler warning for that book. Auren has killed King Midas and is no longer under his control. Slade has escaped the Fifth Kingdom's palace with her after temporarily rotting her to save her life. However, in their attempt to flee the palace, the other kingdoms decide to come up with their own narrative of what happened. Stating that Auren can steal powers and seduced Slade in an attempt to steal his as well, all so the other kingdoms could appear more powerful. Of course, we know that's not true but we get to see how this narrative plays out in Glow.…

My Thoughts on A Shadow in the Ember (Flesh and Fire, Book 1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My Thoughts on A Shadow in the Ember (Flesh and Fire, Book 1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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.…
