Sapphique (Incarceron #2)

Sapphique (Incarceron, #2)Sapphique by Catherine Fisher

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great book. I liked it better than Incarceron, because it tells the ending of a great adventure story. The King has stopped time, and forbade the practice of science, and hidden a massive living prison in plain view. However, not everyone knows where or what the prison is. Claudia and Finn must now find a way to save not only the outside world from the Queen and the imposter Prince, but also save their loved ones from the ever vengeful, living prison of Incarceron.

Book Summary:
Finn has escaped from the terrible living Prison of Incarceron, but its memory torments him, because his brother Keiro is still inside. Outside, Claudia insists he must be king, but he doubts even his own identity. Is he the lost prince Giles? Or are his memories no more than another construct of his imprisonment?

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1)

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate, #1)Soulless by Gail Carriger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hmmm….

I’m not sure how to feel about this book. It’s one that you have to read and saver it slowly. For those that read this in one sitting I commend you. It took me a while to get through this book. The characters are interesting and one I’ve never read about before. However, the mix of supernatural with a bit of steampunk is nice. I’m definitely going to check out the next book.

Book Summary:
Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire—and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

SOULLESS is a comedy of manners set in Victorian London: full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.

I have to admit this book is sssooo much better than the last two books in the series. The characters had me laughing, crying, and down right rolling. And of course there’s that one part that reminded me of when Darth Vader told Luke he was his father!!! OOMG! I can’t say more or I’d spoil it for you. Happy reading my friends.

Book Summary:

A Warrior Of Immortal Powers

He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty—and seduce him with a desire he could never fulfill. For this woman he burned to possess was also
the woman he had foresworn to destroy.

A Woman Caught In The Mists Of Time

When Lisa felt the earth move under her feet, the fiercely independent 21st-century woman never dreamed she was falling…into another century. But the powerful, naked warrior who stood glaring down at her was only too real…and too dangerously arousing. Irresistibly handsome he might be, but Lisa had no intention of remaining in this savage land torn by treachery and war. How could she know that her seductive captor had other plans for her…plans that would save her from a tragic fate? Or that this man who had long ago forsaken love would defy time itself to claim her for his own….

This series just keeps getting better! I found myself enthrall with the story of Lionheart and Rose Red. I can say much or I’d give spoilers which is what I don’t do, but the characters are relatable and very likeable. The story and setting will have you turning the page sooner than you want too!

This was an interesting book to say the least. The characters were just hilarious especially Hawk and Adrienne. I mean seriously how can a man from the 1500’s who’s known as a great lover contend with a woman from the 20th century? It all leads to one amazing story! Oh and don’t get me started on the jealous Adam who is know as the Queens consort. He just causes trouble for everyone. Happy reading my friends.

Book Summary:
He would sell his warrior soul to possess her…

An alluring laird…

He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart—until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm’s length—but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.

A prisoner in time…

She had a perfect “no” on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne’s reservations were no match for Hawk’s determination to keep her by his side..

This is such a lovely story. I loved reading about Keelin and her journey from not knowing her heritage to fully discovering who she truly is. She goes from living in Boston to visiting her grandma in Ireland and finding a family she never knew she had. This book is very heart warming and full of humor. It’s a good read to curl up to on a rainy day.
