These last two months have been insane! I’ve finished writing & editing the second novel in the Black Werewolves series (which is available for pre-order on Amazon at a special price of $1.99 instead of $3.99). I went to see the BossHoss play live in Vienna for the second time and got to dance on stage (I mean, who doesn’t love cowboys? Yeehaw!). Not to mention that I published Drowned in Demand, the first novella in the erotic paranormal romance series Drowned.
So… As you can see I’ve been super busy, hence the 2in1 book rec!
Sarah J. Maas: A Court of Mist and Fury
Let me start with the book I’ve actually read TWICE since its release (honestly, I can’t remember the last time I did that). The sequel to Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses delivered all I had hoped for and so, so much more.
The book is breathtakingly written, the storyline so captivating that I was barely able to peel away from the pages.
Maas introduces new characters that a reader can’t help falling in love with, and spins a whole new story about those we have already known.
Now, I know this book received some grievances about the unexpected shift concerning Feyre’s life (those who had read the novel will know what I’m talking about)… But honestly, I don’t mind it. It’s written effectively, giving just enough insight so that readers can puzzle the picture together themselves. And once they do… The story just makes sense.
So let me say it again. I read it twice. And wouldn’t mind picking the book up a third time. Even with so little time in-between.
Michael-Scott Earle: The Destroyer
I picked up this dark fantasy novel while browsing around free books to see if anything caught my eye. Well, The Destroyer most certainly did and the novel didn’t disappoint.
Although the writing can be a bit rough at times, it’s nothing that would put a reader off. And the world Earle creates certainly makes up for it!
The narration is divided into multiple perspectives that not only offer different insights into the story but show us different times as well; of the time when Elvens ruled over humans, of the human world now facing an Elven threat… And of the mysterious history surrounding the O’Baarni, an unstoppable weapon that had once destroyed the hated race.
The novel is free on Amazon, so if you’re looking for a dark fantasy read, I highly suggest you hit that download button!
(Just FYI: I’m currently reading the sequel and am thoroughly enjoying the new developments)
Charlaine Harris: Midnight Crossroad; Night Shift
Let me put these two babies on the list before I throw myself into the third one that has been released this month.
If you like your books with A LOT of atmosphere and a unique setting that is presented so vividly it makes you wish you were part of it, then the Midnight, Texas series is the perfect read.
The series is set in the same world as the Southern Vampires Mysteries, but aside from maybe a scene or two, you aren’t missing out on much if you haven’t read the books but rather decided to simply delve into the enchanting world Harris builds in Midnight, Texas instead.
Unless you’re craving for a shitload of action, these novels will have you flipping the pages and drinking in every little detail of this weird yet charming town.
And remember, the third book is already out! Perfect for binge-reading, am I right?
