And I’ve finally come to an end with this Muirwood series! It’s been awhile since I last finished a series this quickly, though I have to admit that it being an audiobook GREATLY helped me finish it. Like always, SPOILERS for previous books
Upon discovering she is the lost heir of Pry-Ree, Lia is forced to leave the protection of Muirwood once again. She embarks upon a perilous journey across the kingdom where she avoids capture and begs passage on a ship bound to Dahomey. Lia’s safety is in further jeopardy when she finally reaches Dochte Abbey and learns the hetaera have taken control. Lia must gather all her strength and muster the courage to defeat them, for if she fails, the consequence would be a world in ruin and the shattered lives of those she loves.
Back so soon? I think so! I went ahead and started the second book of the Legends of Muirwood because I was really curious where the story would lead. Plus, I needed more of Lia and Colvin in my life (and oh my did I get more of them)
And SPOILERS from previous book
Rising from her humble beginnings as a lost orphan, Lia is summoned to be Muirwood Abbey’s protector and special guardian for Ellowyn Demont, the lost heir of the fallen kingdom of Pry-Ree. After the death of the ruthless king at the battle of Winterrowd, the great Aldermaston and Abbey leader calls on Lia to use her mystical talents to save Muirwood from two new threats—a vengeful queen accusing the Abbey of her husband’s death and a deadly plague threatening to destroy the land.
Amidst the turmoil, a battle ensues, and soon Lia learns the world’s magic has begun to falter. As a blanket of dread envelops the Abbey, hopes are tested, and Lia will be forced to come to terms with a secret that will change her life forever.
I think I’ve had this book in my possession for more than a month, bordering on two, and I just could not finish it. But not to worry because Audible came to the rescue! When I saw this on there for $2, I knew I had to buy it. And a bit of a random thought: for the whole two months I was calling this book Solaris Seeth-is and it wasn’t until I finished reading this that I realized it was Seethes, like when you get mad. Facepalm, I know.
Anyways, this book is about Rynah from planet Lanyr who is betrayed by her fiance when he decides to steal the crystal that keeps their planet in tact (I believe they said it helped keep the gravitational force balanced). Once taken, Lanyr crumbles because of extreme natural disasters and is destroyed. Left for dead, Rynah must find an alternate way to escape Lanyr before she really does die, and by some miracle she finds Solaris, an old ship her grandfather infused with an AI. Continue reading →
Hey guys! So I recently realized I had some credits on my Audible account from a couple months back and since I hear we can only roll over so many, I thought I’d spend some and share my purchases with you all!
I had 4 credits on my account this morning and now I have 3 and less money in my bank account…
I’m actually already listening to this one, as I write this out. I heard about it via a reviewing site where I’m supposed to review this. I was having a hard time actually reading this from my phone (I kept falling asleep), so I figured I’d get the audiobook. It cost about $2, possibly because I already owned the e-book. I ended up paying the money since it wasn’t worth spending a credit on something that cost $2 Continue reading →
Hey guys! So it’s been awhile since I last picked up a Netgalley title but I was bored and curious. Next thing I know, I’m here reading The Circle by Damon Clark
I decided to pick this book out because the cover looked really awesome. It had this creepy look to it but the style wasn’t really unappealing, which is usually the case with non-manga titles. The Circle is about a boy named Christian who has just moved to Shell Bay with his father after his mother died. On his first day of school, however, things don’t turn out well and he ends up becoming the punching bag for the popular clique. His salvation seems to come from a group of weird kids who pick him up on his way home from school, but as he soon figures out, things are much more complicated Continue reading →
