My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG what did I just read! It can’t be the end! No it just can’t! There must be more books about Mac, Barrons, and the gang. I’m at a lost for words as this is the best book in the series. I have cried, laughed, cried, laughed, and cried some more. I love it when books bring out emotions in me. I would have thrown it across the room but it’s not my book 🙂 If you have read all the books in the series then you’ll know finally what happened to Dani as a young girl, how she was raised, and she’s the way she is. I can’t say much more or I’d be spoiling the book and I just can’t do that. I’m just hurt that it’s the end…….

Book Summary:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning returns with the epic conclusion to her pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn. As Mac, Barrons, Ryodan, and Jada struggle to restore control, enemies become allies, right and wrong cease to exist, and the lines between life and death, lust and love, disappear completely.

Black holes loom menacingly over Dublin, threatening to destroy the Earth. Yet the greatest danger is the one MacKayla Lane has unleashed from within: the Sinsar Dubh—a sentient book of unthinkable evil—has possessed her body and will stop at nothing in its insatiable quest for power.

The fate of Man and Fae rests on destroying the book and recovering the long-lost Song of Making, the sole magic that can repair the fragile fabric of the Earth. But to achieve these aims, sidhe-seers, the Nine, Seelie, and Unseelie must form unlikely alliances and make heart-wrenching choices. For Barrons and Jada, this means finding the Seelie Queen who alone can wield the mysterious song, negotiating with a lethal Unseelie prince hell-bent on ruling the Fae courts, and figuring out how to destroy the Sinsar Dubh while keeping Mac alive.

This time, there’s no gain without sacrifice, no pursuit without risk, no victory without irrevocable loss. In the battle for Mac’s soul, every decision exacts a tremendous price.

All That is Beautiful (Arrington #2)

All That is Beautiful (Arrington, #2)All That is Beautiful by Roxane Tepfer Sanford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t even know where to start. This story had me angry at times, happy at times, and down right sad. I had tears rolling down my cheeks at times. The story picks up where the first book leaves off. We follow Lillian on her journey through her relationship with Richard and her plight to get home to Jasper Island. It’s rare for me to find a story let alone an entire series that leaves me filled with such emotion that I’m left speechless and lost for words.

Book Summary:

Readers of The Girl in the Lighthouse continue Lillian Arrington’s turbulent lifelong journey of lies, lust, and doomed love.

It is the year 1878, and at last, Lillian, now a young woman, is free from the prison called Sutton Hall and the evil grandmother who ruled. After years locked away far from her beloved lighthouse on Jasper Island, she finds her only escape through sheer luck and the generosity of one man, Richard Parker, an aspiring commercial illustrator. Though Lillian is shamed by the sins of her parents and the unspeakable act committed by Warren Stone, she entrusts her life to the charismatic, though married, Richard, until it is safe to return home.

However life, as unpredictable as the sea, has other plans for Lillian.

Not long after leaving, she is caught up in an adult world of money, greed, drugs, and sinful pleasures, turning her life upside down once again.

It is only when Lillian discovers the shocking truth to Richard’s cruel years of deception that she finally returns to her lighthouse, desperate to recapture her lost years, and most of all, lost love.

But fate has one more devastating surprise in store, leaving Lillian with incomprehensible choices, and ultimately, tearing her beautiful new world apart.

Chivalrous (Valiant Hearts #2)

Chivalrous (Valiant Hearts, #2)Chivalrous by Dina L. Sleiman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! This is a great story! I found myself wanting to just finish it in one sitting but life kind of had it own plans. This story is about Allen and how he sets off on his own. He finds himself in a new land with new friends, but along the way he finds out what it means to become a just and fair knight. There might even be a little romance to come his way by a fierce lady named Gwen. I can’t say to much or I’d spoil the book for you. So go out there and read this book! I can’t wait to dig into the third one!

Right to Kill (Nathan McBride #6)

Right to Kill (Nathan McBride, #6)Right to Kill by Andrew Peterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first introduction to Nathan McBride and his partner. Even though this is the 6th book, it stood on it own. It was fast paced, and kept me on my toes. I didn’t want to stop listening to it. If you’re into military thrillers then this book is for you! I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.

Book Summary:

When a team of commandos—highly skilled and armed to the teeth—tries to kidnap retired CIA station chief Linda Genneken from her home, trained Marine Nathan McBride and his partner, Harvey Fontana, arrive just in time to join the fight. But their well-honed CIA instincts tell them this is only the beginning.

McBride and Fontana set out to learn who ordered the midnight raid, and why. Is it connected to a rescue mission they conducted with Genneken in South America—a mission that nearly killed McBride? Is it related to the string of assassinations happening simultaneously in that area of the world? Or both?

With the help of their CIA contacts and aided by Genneken, the two men unravel a criminal plot with global implications. And as their race to find answers unspools in six supercharged hours, McBride and his team will be tested like never before.

This was a sweet, fast read. I love this story and the characters. Beth is a strong and courageous woman who knows how to keep on going when things get tough.
