8 Souls by Rachel Rust

Publication Date: May 6, 2019

Publisher: Entangled Teen

All her life, seventeen-year-old Chessie has had recurring dreams about a little white farmhouse. Quaint? Not quite. The house is the site of the unsolved murders of Villisca, Iowa, where eight people were slaughtered in 1912. With her parents on the verge of divorce, Chessie is stuck spending the summer with her grandparents in Villisca—right across the street from the axe murder house. 

She’s soon hearing voices calling out for help and begins unraveling a link between herself and the town’s bloody history. And when she falls for a cute boy harboring a big secret, the pieces fall into place as she at last discovers the truth of Villisca’s gruesome past…

Excerpt:

I concentrate on my breaths to keep homesickness from creeping in. In. Out. In. Out. Eventually, my mind composes itself then goes blank and I begin to drift to sleep.

But almost immediately, a soft sound rouses me. Barely there, it hums through the air with a methodical pace.

Giggling.

My eyes flicker open and I strain my ears but am unable to decipher which direction it’s coming from. I close my eyes. It’s the wind. Go to sleep. But the sound continues. Muffled, but distinct enough that it’s not the wind, or the hum of a fan in another room, or air flowing through the ductwork. It’s giggling.

And it’s not a dream.

It must be Grandma, because it’s too high-pitched to be Grandpa. I make a face, not wanting to think about why my grandma is giggling in the middle of the night.

“Oh my god, yuck.” I pull the covers over my face. But my bladder has other plans and eventually forces me up.

The wood floors are cool under my feet. I walk out of my room, but two steps into the hallway, the giggling noise pivots. My grandparents’ bedroom door is straight in front of me. But the giggling isn’t coming from in front of me. It’s behind me.

It’s coming from my own bedroom.

A chill ripples down my spine as the giggling continues nonstop, machinegun-like, with no pauses for breathing, vibrating the air around me.

Just like the drowned girl in my dream.

As if she’s sitting cross-legged on the floor right behind me, playing a board game or having a tea party. Or ready to reach out and touch me again.

The hallway is dark, but there’s enough light to make out the white walls and dark woodwork around each door. Slowly, my head swivels around to look at my bedroom, unsure of what might stare back.

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan // Blog Tour

“Prepare for a snow-frosted, blood-drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love ends up being the nightmare.” – Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings. 

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.

“This book destroyed me and I adored it.”- Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

REVIEWS:

“Prepare for a snow frosted, blood drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love ends up being the nightmare. Utterly absorbing.” – Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen 

“Full of blood and monsters and magic—this book destroyed me and I adored it. Emily is a wicked storyteller, she’s not afraid to hurt her characters or her readers. If you’ve ever fallen in love with a villain you will fall hard for this book.” – Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

“This is the novel of dark theology and eldritch blood-magic that I’ve been waiting for all my life. It’s got a world at once brutal and beautiful, filled with characters who are wounded, lovable, and ferocious enough to break your heart. A shattering, utterly satisfying read.” – Rosamund Hodge, author of Cruel Beauty and Bright Smoke, Cold Fire 

Wicked Saints is a lush, brutal, compelling fantasy that is dark, deep, and bloody—absolutely riveting! With a boy who is both man and monster, mysterious saints with uncertain motives, and a girl filled with holy magic who is just beginning to understand the full reaches of her power, this gothic jewel of a story will sink its visceral iron claws into you, never letting go until you’ve turned the last page. And truthfully, not even then -the explosive ending will haunt you for days! ” – Robin LaFevers, New York Times bestselling author of the His Fair Assassin trilogy 

“Dark, bloody, and monstrously romantic. This is the villain love interest that we’ve all been waiting for.” – Margaret Rogerson, New York Times bestselling author of An Enchantment of Ravens 
“Seductively dark and enchanting, Wicked Saints is a trance you won’t want to wake from. Duncan has skillfully erected a world like no other, complete with provocative magic, sinister creatures, and a plot that keeps you guessing. This spellbinding YA fantasy will bewitch readers to the very last page.” – Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep

About the Book:

Seven Torments of Amy and CraigTitle: THE SEVEN TORMENTS OF AMY & CRAIG

Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook

Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)

1994

The worst thing that’s ever happened to Craig is also the best: Amy. Amy and Craig never should’ve gotten together. Craig is an awkward, Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school.

Yet somehow they did. Until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over.

Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig’s exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon.

Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy’s quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig’s girlfriend?and sometimes doesn’t.

Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys.Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis’s debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and utterly universal experience of first love.

2950337_orig

Review:

How can I properly review this book? Not only is it set in one of the best decades to have grown up in, it was full of deeply flawed characters that made me want to hug them.

The overall story was far more complex than I was prepared for. Craig was a bit of a social outcast and constantly struggled to find his own identity in the shadow of his twin sister. Amy had a learning disability that she was determined to prove would not hold her back in any way. The journey these two went on to find a way to prove their past did not determine their future was incredibly. I fell hard and deep for Craig & Amy. I really do not want to give too much away other than what I said above, which I know was not much. I did that on purpose. I want you to give this one a chance and add to your TBR if you have not already.

One last hook – I believe if you love Rainbow Rowell and John Green books, you’ll really like this.

BOOK DESCRIPTION 

CoverIn the sequel to the acclaimed Beasts Made of Night, Taj has escaped Kos, but Queen Karima will go to any means necessary–including using the most deadly magic–to track him down.

Taj is headed west, but the consequences of leaving Kos behind confront him at every turn. Innocent civilians flee to refugee camps as Karima’s dark magic continues to descend on the city. Taj must return, but first he needs a plan.

With Arzu’s help, Taj and Aliya make it to the village of her ancestors, home of the tastahlik–sin-eaters with Taj’s same ability to both battle and call forth sins. As Taj comes to terms with his new magic, he realizes there are two very different groups of tastahlik–one using their powers for good, the other for more selfish ends.

Aliya is struggling with her own unique capabilities. She’s immersed in her work to uncover the secret to Karima’s magic, but her health begins to mysteriously deteriorate. With the help of a local western mage, Aliya uncovers her true destiny–a future she’s not sure she wants.

As Taj and Aliya explore their feelings for each other and Arzu connects with her homeland, the local westerners begin to question Taj’s true identity. Karima is on his heels, sending dark warnings to the little village where he’s hiding. Taj will have to go back and face her before she sends her most deadly weapon–Taj’s former best friend, Bo.

About the Book:

Renegade1400X2100Title: RENEGADE (Black Dawn 0.5)

Author: Mallory McCartney

Pub. Date: July 3, 2018

Publisher: Clean Reads Publishing

Formats: eBook

Pages: 250

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon

“The time for Kiero’s reign in prosperity is over.”

Six years before the Black Dawn Rebellion, Adair Stratton and Emory Fae are following in their parent’s footsteps and living at The Academy, a home for those who are gifted.  The pressure to uphold the future of their parent’s dream falls on them. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to break away from the expectations dictating his future. Even if Emory tries to make him see differently. An unexpected group of friends keep him there, but as whispers of unexplained disappearances start reaching from the capital, Adair starts to doubt The Academy is all it seems.

An unexpected visit ignites new tensions as the roguish king from across the Black Sea, Tadeas Maher of the Shattered Isles, and his heir, Marquis Maher sail to Kiero. Notorious for their pirating and wrath- for the first time in years, they demand the Fae’s listen to their proposition for a new treaty, holding the news of Nei’s father’s abrupt death over them. Caught in the middle of politics- Adair and Emory, with the help of their best friends Brokk and Memphis search for the one thing that matters most- finding out the truth.

In this gripping prequel to Black Dawn, their world is tipped upside down as unlikely alliances are made. War ravages through Kiero and is torn apart by acclaimed Kings. Through the throes of betrayal, lies, hidden magic and love, Adair is faced with a life changing decision- to fight or to bow to the darkness within him.

Review:

If you have ever wanted a prequel that would knock your socks off…. look no further. This one had it all. It was a stunning example of what a prequel should be. It was brilliantly written with all of the world building I was hoping for. If there is one thing McCartney can do, it is world build. Well, she can certainly write, there is no question about that, but she can also write in a way that is so fluid and magical that I felt comfortable in this story. I know that sounds odd to say but hear me out. The way she brought me back into this story made it feel like I was snuggling under a warm blanket.

This story helped to fill in some blanks I had left over from book 1 – Black Dawn. With that, I highly recommend giving this novella a chance, especially if you have read book 1. You won’t be disappointed. The characters are even more developed and their character arcs are ones you won’t want to miss.

Have I enticed you yet? I hope you give this one a read! I highly recommend.

Synopsis (GR):

Sky in the Deep_cover imageSeventeen-year-old Eelyn’s world is war. Raised to fight alongside her Aska clansmen in a generations-old blood feud against the Riki, her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki if she wants to make it back to the fjord after the thaw. But when she begins to see herself in the people she’s been taught to hate, the world Eelyn once knew begins to crumble. And after the village is raided by a ruthless clan many believe to be a myth, Eelyn is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend who has tried more than once to kill her. Together, they must end the blood feud between their clans or watch their people be slaughtered.

A lush, Viking-age inspired fantasy about loyalty, forgiveness, and the definition of family.
2950337_orig

Review:

This book did not mess around. If you want action – if you want adventure – if you want non-stop – you need to pick up this book. Young did not disappoint. You find out from the start that Eelyn is one tough mamba-jamma that is not to be messed with. She can handle herself and there is never a question of that. Her character is the true definition of the word FIERCE.

When I started this, I will admit I was hesitant because a YA version of a Viking story might come across a little weak or fluffy but that is not the case here. Young can write one hell of a story. She pulled me in from the start and never let me go. I was immediately sucked into a fast-paced and gripping story of a protagonist that knows what she wants. It didn’t get better than this story and I don’t know how Young is going to top this other than just keep writing… forever.

I hope you all realize how much I am struggling to NOT give anything away! I just want everyone to get their hands on a copy of the gem and submerse themselves into the rich and colorful world Young created. The pages will turn so quickly and it will be over before you know it. That’s what happened to me. I could not get enough and I know everyone is going to be saying the same thing. This is one book you do NOT want to miss out on.

It didn’t get better than this story and I don’t know how Young is going to top this other than just keep writing… forever.

I hope you all realize how much I am struggling to NOT give anything away! I just want everyone to get their hands on a copy of the gem and submerse themselves into the rich and colorful world Young created. The pages will turn so quickly and it will be over before you know it. That’s what happened to me. I could not get enough and I know everyone is going to be saying the same thing. This is one book you do NOT want to miss out on.2950337_orig
