The Emissary: Featured Review

39022155

The Emissary is book 1 from the One Great Year Series written by Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio.

The story revolves around Marcus and Theron and their love through ages. The characters are well developed through the sections of the book we see their past lives and how their relationship evolves through time. 
The word building is intricate and detailed, this gives an important element to the different eras where the story takes place. Tamara’s and Rene’s writing had an academic feel to it, and I won’t be surprised if this story is used in academic essays in the future.

Over all 4 out of 5 stars. Recommended to all if you like descriptive work building and intricate story plots.

A Court of Frost and Starlight: Review

36048256

Waste of time.

I had pre-ordered this book but now I’m re-considering to even order the remaining books in this series.

ACOFAS starts off after some time has passed from the events of ACOWAR. Ferye, Rhys, and the inner circle are learning to accept themselves after what they’ve lost during the war and preparing for the festivities of the Winter Solstice.

This book lacked the SJM fast-paced writing and several paragraphs felt repeated sometimes with the exact same words. The plot itself didn’t progress much further. In just 229 pages, it actually felt that it was quite a useless read.

There were several chapters that were either a flashback sequence or just the characters remembering

the past events. In my opinion, those chapters were simply there to add to the word count because honestly someone reading this novella is more likely to have read the previous 3 books.

Moreover, having read more POC books of POC Authors/POC Characters in the duration from ACOWAR to ACOFAS, this book felt utterly ‘white’.

1.5 out of 5 stars.

Living Underground: Review

40701813

Living underground is short story.

It’s the thoughts of a woman who frequently takes the London metro. She thinks about her past love, to her current observations of her surroundings, to what she plans to do once she reaches home.

Josie Jaffrey managed to write an intriguing story in under 15 pages, that was both mysterious and had a sense of both lover’s regret and compassion.

Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Vortex Visions: Review

41834793

A Must Read!

Vortex Vision is a sequel to the Air Awakens Series with a time leap of 20 or so years. While you don’t need to read the first 5 books of the original series, I felt that it gave an extra depth and background to the characters and how the story unfolds having read the series not so long ago.

Vi Solaris, Daughter of Aldrik Solaris and Vhalla Yarl and heir to the Solaris Empire, is shown to be a steadfast strong young lady much like her mother, Vhalla. While she is having trouble to control her magic, she soon discovers that it might be entirely something else and she discovers that she might very well be the key to save her world. 

The story is very well-paced and Elise Kova’s writing has involved considerably from her world-building to creating suspense and heartbreaking romance. The action sequences and plot points are well thought out and make this book a page-turner. The romance has its own pace and doesn’t seem over the top at any moment and it feels tangible. The characters; Andru, Taavin, Jayme, Ellene, Jax, and the rest are well developed. I can’t wait to read more of them. 

This will definitely be one of favorite books from Elise Kova. Recommended for all YA Fantasy Fans (totally recommended if you’ve read the original series because this book is so much better). 

5 out of 5 Stars.
