A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas



 When 19-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin - one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it... or doom Tamlin - and his world - forever. 


~Review


I’d heard great things about this book and I went in with expecting nothing less. Ms. Maas delivered and then some. I am in all of her. Her writing is brilliant and a visual feast for the mind. Her world building is impeccable. She uses Beauty and the Beast as a loose framework. However, how Beauty and the Breast lit a spark in a little girls heart and mind; ACOTAR stokes the flames of passion and desire in the women those little girls became.  
Feyer is a young woman who became the bread winner for her family, after her father’s downfall. She has a bright soul that burns bright even with her trying to suppress it. She only wants to have a nice simple life with enough to eat and the time to paint. However, by taking a life in the woods her world is forever changed. She has to learn to let the light that burns within out and allow it to shine brightly. 
Tamlin and his people leave under a shroud of despair that lead to the life they have always known. He sees hope in Feyer maybe even an end to the despair that has plagued his lands for so long. However, his own good will may end it before it even has a chance to begin.
ACOTAR is a wonderful story. I haven’t a bad thing to say about.The voice is spot on!  I loved all the side characters that built a believable and intriguing world. I wanted to surmise myself in this book… this world until I know every little thing that lives there. 5 stars read. Grab it and let the adventure begin.

Torkel's Chosen: A World Beyond by Michelle Howard & Narrated by Michael Pauley




~Review 

Everyone reaches a point in their life were they can’t see themselves continuing doing the same thing year after year. Torkel and Faye have both reached this point in their life; whether it’s due to age or constant disappoint.
Faye time is almost up when comes to having a husband and a children of her own, when she gets the chance of the life time to find love off world. Once she reaches the planet she has chosen to find her future husband, things go from bad to worst. A person tries to kidnap her. When that doesn’t work she is forced to help undermined her husband. Can their love overcome her betrayal?
Torkel is an outcast among his adopted people; throughout his life he has had to face adversity because of his birth planet. His only wish is it to find a woman that will love him beyond his heritage. He wants a woman he love and protect with his whole being. When Faye chooses him in the sands, he thinks this is a blessing from the gods. However, their happiness is short lived, due to Faye’s betrayal. He must choose between his heart and his honor as a warrior.
Ms. Michelle Howard does a wonderful job of building a world anyone would love to visit. Her characters jump off the pages and sink into your heart. You feel each emotion of Torkel and Faye. While many Alien romances lack a basic plot this story is well developed and the plot works with and without an alien theme.
If you haven’t read this genre I would suggest giving this author and story a chance.
