City of Miracles (ADULT)


City of Miracles is an action packed, edge of your seat kind of book, and one of the author’s best so far.  I loved every minute of it, even though it took me a while to read.  I have not read them in order since I found out about the books by seeing the ads for City of Miracles and thought it sounded good and read it than found out there where others and they actually came first, and while each can actually be read on its own, some of the characters might make more sense if read in order, or it could be just my own quirk of reading books in order.  Anyways this was an awesome book that should not be missed by anyone who loves book vengeance.  I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review."

High Alert (ADULT AUDIO)

When a madman plans to sends to United States into a nuclear war by sinking one of its subs and laying blame on another country it is The Project that sees through it, and is tasked with going after the real madman and stopping him before he causes other countries to launch their nukes, but will Nick and the team make it in time?
This is another non stop action, suspense filled, twist around every corner book by Alex Lukeman.  I love his story lines and the characters, especially as they have become friends, and I fell instantly in love with the newest member of the team, Freddy, he is awesome.  If you are lucky enough to get the hear the audiobooks of these wonderful books than you are in for a real treat with voice actor Jack de Golia lending his voice to the many characters and making each and everyone different, individual, and with their own little swagger to them as well, it is a production not to be missed.

Shift of Shadow and Soul (YA)

Long ago the Restless King banned all magic in the kingdom, but now with the Generals first son, Syashin, and a girl from the isle, named Corentine who both have been born with shifter magic, is it time for the people to rise and take back their kingdom from the ruthless King or should they wait and join their magic for a powerful next generation?
This book is so full of suspense, twists and turns, and action all the way until the last page and leave you searching for more in  the  following book as soon as you can get it.  The characters are awesome and you will find yourself right in the middle of the action along with them as they travel, fight and learn about each other and themselves as move toward their final destination.  This is one of those books that once you get started it hooks you and you will stay up way past you bedtime to see what happens to Coren, Sy, and more as they go through their adventures.

Orphan Monster Spy (YA)

This is the story of little Sarah, the Jew that wasn't a Jew, who became a orphan,  than a spy, but along the way a monster.  If you like this era of books than you will like this one.  At some points you will shake your head and say no way that happened but then you will remember all the things of that era and then you will tell yourself, maybe it could have.  This book is fill with action  and suspense like you would think it should be but there are also twists and turns that you don't see coming, and you'll be like what???  If you like Elizabeth Wein books you will adore this one as well, it is a historical fiction not to be missed if you like this time period.

The Heart Forger (YA)

A bone witch like Tea can take a life and return it but they can not kill that which is already dead, and the game she is playing for revenge  one whether she knows it or not, because there is always one stronger or more knowledgeable. 
This is a great sequel to the first book The Bone Witch, action packed and even more twists and turns that will through you for more loops, and surprises.  Each subsequent book brings us closer to the true Tea and what brought her to this point in her life, and I can't wait to be able to put all the pieces together at once.

Time Bomb (YA)

Seven Teens stuck in a high school after a bomb goes off must work together to get out before the rest of the hidden bombs go off and entomb them, but one is responsible for the bombs, they don't know this yet, but what will happen when the do?
This breakfast club of teens stuck together and must help each other in order to get out alive.  I found the book very interesting and a fast read but some of the premise behind the bombing I just couldn't find believable.  The kids I am around if it doesn't benefit them directly they wouldn't go out of their way or be bothered by it.  So I find that for a teen to bomb their school for their father a little unrealistic, especially without his knowledge.  But the book is filled with lots of actions and suspense so it is a pretty good read, and if anything it shows diversity and helps with understanding of several groups you might not otherwise have access too, we always #needdiversebooks.
