*BLOG TOUR* Allied – Molly Zenk & Sarah Biglow ★★★★

Blurb; Six weeks after Edith and her vampire family were exiled from their clan, Darren waits at the rendezvous, poised for a reunion that might never come. With every passing day, his hope of ever seeing the vampire who showed him what it means to be human again dwindles.

On the run from Hunters and her own clan alike, Edith strives to protect those in her care, all the while fighting to get back to Darren and the family she’d long dreamed of. But even when their paths do cross again, reunion comes at a cost.

When Mr. Heartsong brazenly declares war on all humanity, allegiances will be tested. Will Edith side with the man she’s come to believe may be her destiny or the creator who gave her a second chance at life?

My Review; This is book two in the series and it’s been a while since a read book one so I had to refresh my memory a little. Took a few chapters to get back into it but then I was hooked. Brilliant read I devoured in one night. Familiar characters. More fights. More deaths. The ending… Wow. It left me wanting book three already. Huge cliffhanger. Highly recommend this series. Short. Easy reading. Fast paced. Full of action. Perfect for any vampire fans. YA/Fantasy. Amazing. A well deserved four stars from me. I look forward to book three.

Breathless – Jennifer Niven ★★★★

Blurb; You were my first. Not just sex, although that was part of it, but the first to look past everything else into me. Some of the names and places have been changed, but the story is true. It’s all here because one day this will be the past, and I don’t want to forget what I went through, what I thought, what I felt, who I was. I don’t want to forget you. But most of all, I don’t want to forget me.

For her last summer before college, Claudine Henry and her mother head to a remote island off the Georgia coast. There, amidst the wild beauty of the place, she meets the free spirited Jeremiah Crew. Their chemistry is immediate and irresistible, and even though they both know that whatever they have can only last the summer, maybe one summer is enough . . .

My Review; This is one of my best friends favourite authors so ofcourse I had to read it. YA/romance. Emotional reading in parts. Claudine is an amazing main character, after her parents split she finds herself with her mother on a remote island with no phone signal. What will she do? Surely she won’t fall in love will she? That is exactly what she does. A story all about first love. Overcoming her parents break up, learning about herself & her family past. A beautiful story. Does contain sex scenes.

Devoured the majority of this in one day. Absolutely loved it. The ending annoying me. Well a certain part. No spoilers but highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. Stunning. A read that stays with you and reminds you all about your first love. Cute.

A Girl Called Owl – Amy Wilson ★★★★

Blurb; It’s bad enough having a mum dippy enough to name you Owl, but when you’ve got a dad you’ve never met, a best friend who needs you more than ever, and a new boy at school giving you weird looks, there’s not a lot of room for much else.

So when Owl starts seeing strange frost patterns on her skin, she’s tempted to just burrow down under the duvet and forget all about it. Could her strange new powers be linked to her mysterious father?And what will happen when she enters the magical world of winter for the first time?

My Review; I have read books by this author before and loved them so had to carry on with her other books. Now this was a different read for me. Young Adult, fantasy. But also a little wierd. The main character is named owl half human half Fay. Her dad is Jack frost… Wierd right? But it’s a wintery read, magical in parts but also strange coming and going between different worlds.

It’s an easy, chilly and frosty read. A unique read. One I won’t forget just a bit strange but it was a good story with a happy ending for all. I look forward to reading her other books. A well deserved four stars from me. Stunning cover.
