Burning Bridges by Nadege Richards: Review

Kill or be killed. Love or let go. 

In a world divided between the Hunters and the Warriors, the prisoners who have fallen prey to King Cyrus's decrees are forced into the arena to fight until death. The winner is granted mercy and the privilege to see another sunrise–for the loser, it’s death unto the weak. 

Seventeen year-old Princess Echo races towards freedom to find out who she really is, and to put a world that has been swallowed by lies back together again. 

And then there’s Ayden. His very existence as a Hunter is forbidden, and with his otherworldly, violet eyes Echo is finding it hard to stay away from him. When death threatens their forbidden love Echo and Ayden are forced to do the unthinkable–how far will they go to be together?

Review of Sad Wings of Destiny by Thom Brannan

sadwingsofdestiny4/5 Stars If superhero movies, with all their nitty-gritty reboots nowadays could have half the story SWoD has, they'd be a lot better off. It doesn't follow the formula most superhero novels/movies does, it's its own world, in that the superheroes, something I'm even hesitant to call them, operate, especially Spring-Heeled Jack, on this precarious border between what's morally sound, and what isn't. It did take me quite a bit of time to finish it, but it wasn't for lack of enjoyment. Life got in the way, yet I would always find my mind returning to SWoD and what would be coming next. Toward the end of the novel, it became apparent to me that a hero, unlike the ones we see in our media today, are not so easily defined, and I have not read a superhero novel that fully explores this, and so fully, as Sad Wings of Destiny has.

Not to spoil the plot or anything, some choices, some events cannot be avoided, and the way things must come to an end, unfortunately, or fortunately for some, involve sacrifice. It takes a great person, super powered or no, to recognize this and commit to it fully, even if it means becoming the very thing they fought for years, as it often does. Thom Brannan has crafted a thought-provoking read, any fan of superheroes, anti-heroes, and their villains would greatly enjoy.

As for me, I'm swamped in papers to do for classes, and still want to find time to tackle my own book.

But I just want to sleep. Ah well, that seems to be how it goes.

REVIEW: Tentyrian Legacy by Elise Walters

tentyrian legacy

bookshelves: dark-fantasy, fantasy, romance, permuted-press, vampires, historical-fiction, urban-fantasy

Having just finished this book, my emotions are on high. Who doesn't love a good romance novel? Who doesn't love a good vampire novel? Who doesn't love both?

You'll get that in Tentyrian Legacy.

It's simply a badass story.

Spanning the centuries, the Tentyrians (vampires), having seen all the world's wars and great moments are on a quest to stop their former Brothers at arms, now dubbed the Dark Coven.

When Arianna is thrown into this world after graduating from Harvard, her troubling gifts (a mind that hears many voices and later the ability to read people's minds) lead her to meet the alluring and Greek-like-god-figure Maximos.

He's a Tentyrian and is determined to get her to realize she is one too before the Dark Coven can get their hands on her.

It's a tale stapled throughout history, filled with blood, power, and romance, that is sure to excite fans of vampire lore, historical buffs, and romance novel enthusiasts alike.

As a fellow lover of vampires, and vampire lore, my thirst was greatly sated. Looking forward to more adventures from Maximos and Arianna and their Tentyrian Brotherhood. Definitely look forward to more from Mrs. Elise Walters. For a debut novel, this has immense bite.

This book is apart of Permuted Press's "Permuted Platinum" line is out now in Hardcover and is available as an E-Book.

Get this amazing book like right the fuck now or else.

What else?

I don't know but

Or else.

Keep your bite!
