Fantasy Romance Review: Master of Crows by Grace Draven

Master of Crows by Grace Draven


bought as part of Darkly Dreaming anthology

Synopsis from Goodreads
What would you do to win your freedom? This is the question that sets bondwoman, Martise of Asher, on a dangerous path. In exchange for her freedom, she bargains with her masters, the mage-priests of Conclave, to spy on the renegade sorcerer, Silhara of Neith. The priests want Martise to expose the sorcerer's treachery and turn him over to Conclave justice. A risky endeavor, but one she accepts without hesitation--until she falls in love with her intended target.

Silhara of Neith, Master of Crows, is a desperate man. The god called Corruption invades his mind, seducing him with promises of limitless power if he will help it gain dominion over the world. Silhara struggles against Corruption's influence and searches for ways to destroy the god. When Conclave sends Martise as an apprentice to help him, he knows she's a spy. Now he fights a war on two fronts--against the god who would possess him and the apprentice who would betray him.

Mage and spy search together for a ritual that will annihilate Corruption, but in doing so, they discover secrets about each other that may damn them both. Silhara must decide if his fate, and the fate of nations, is worth the soul of the woman he has come to love, and Martise must choose continued enslavement or freedom at the cost of a man's life. And love.

 Oh my god, why am I so lucky with fantasy reads these past few months?! It's freaking me out.

Master of Crows is mind-blowingly amazing, peeps, and that's that. Anyone who loves fantasy romance should drop whatever they are doing right now and start reading it.

The Postman Knock #97

Hey, peeps!
Just a quick post today.
Have you seen my video review? Shall I review something like that again? Opinions, please :)
Here is what I READ:


DREAMS MADE FLESH was a wonderful compilation of stories, which helped to connect the dots for a lot of stuff happening  on book #3 of this series. Loved it! TANGLED WEBS was awesome, a great story about a very twisted, haunted house which kept me on my toes. FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT was a beautiful novella about one of my favorite menages in Roni Loren's books. *sigh* So sweet!

BOUGHT:


 KINDLE FREEBIE:

This was on my wishlist, so I'm glad it was free on kindle!

 This is it for me, peeps! Have a a wonderful weekend, and I'll speak to you next week,
Tchau!

Fantasy Audiobook Quick Audio Review: Queen of the Darkness by Anne Bishop

Queen of The Darkness by Anne Bishop (The Black Jewels #3)


bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

Jaenelle Angelline now reigns as Queen-protector of the Shadow Realm. No longer will the corrupt Blood slaughter her people and defile her lands. But where one chapter ends, a final, unseen battle remains to be written, and Jaenelle must unleash the terrible power that is Witch to destroy her enemies once and for all.
Even so, she cannot stand alone. Somewhere, long lost in madness, is Daemon, her promised Consort. Only his unyielding love can complete her Court and secure her reign. Yet, even together, their strength may not be enough to hold back the most malevolent of forces.

Today I'm trying to do something different, ladies and gents, so I decided to create a quick audio review for an audio book. If it works I'm sure we'll do it again.

Excuse the quality, it's all done with my camera (for taking pictures) but next time I'll try to learn how to do it properly.  Right now this is just spur of the moment thing...

What do you think?
Shall I do something like that again?

Я уже говорила, что мне эта серия фэнтези безумно нравится, и я считаю, что Королева Тьмы на настоящий момент её лучшая книга. 

Это очень тёмное фэнтези, и в этот раз Анн Бишоп просто убивает огромное количество характеров, которые мы успели полюбить да так, что я чуть ли не прослезилась в нескольких местах. Однако все линии сюжета завершены аккуратно и помимо печальных моментов в этой книге много моментов светлых, так что концовка вас удовлетворит полностью, мои дорогие.

Дэймон в этой книге играет значительную и очень сильную роль, и он единственный характер, озвучивание которого Джон Шариан, рассказчик, делает достойным этого героя. С остальными персонажами у него конечно беда, но к третьей книге к его стилю кое-как но привыкаешь.

В общем, прекрасная книга, очень многое в ней происходит, всем поклонникам Жаклин Кэри - читать надо! Очень рекомендую!

Steampunk Fantasy Review: Engraved by Karina Cooper

Engraved by Karina Cooper (The St. Croix Chronicles #5)


Egalley thanks to Carina Press

Synopsis from Goodreads
Cherry St. Croix returns to the fog-ridden streets of Victorian London, where the balance of power threatens all that she loves.

I will not wither without laudanum. Sober and determined, I have chosen another way— alchemy, and the pursuit of wellness it embodies. My name is Cherry St. Croix, and though freedom is finally at my fingertips, I return to the blackened streets intent on righting the wrongs I'd left behind.

All is not well in London low. Caught in a war between gangs, men are torn limb from limb, and I am called on to ascertain how. The immoral Karakash Veil is no doubt involved, and Micajah Hawke, a prisoner in his own Menagerie, cannot soften the danger this time.

Armed with the alchemical arts I have learned, my ever present guardian, and what few friends are left to me, I embark on a campaign to rescue the ringmaster I cannot abandon, save the Brick Street Bakers from annihilation, and finally face that which frightens me the most—my own heart.

I admit I am prejudiced about anything concerning this series, so my rating is a tad higher than it could have been, but I can't help it. I enjoy it way too much!
