About The Book

Brutal Curse EbookPrince Carden of Tierney lost his home, family, and claim to the throne in one fell swoop when he rebelled against his father for a cause he knew was right. Instead of wallowing in despair, he embarks on a new journey, starting a new life on the Southern Isle. When he finds himself caught in a web woven by the famously ruthless fae queen, Coeur, he insults her and she vows to teach him the most difficult and heart-breaking lesson he will ever learn: that humans are incapable of love, and that hearts are beastly things.

Arabella wasn’t really living, she was existing and surviving as best she could. A chance encounter with Carden changes everything for her, but the deadly game he’s dragged her into might cost her life.

Still, she agrees to play. The rules the fae queen gives them are vague, and it’s obvious there are things Queen Coeur isn’t telling them. She’s sure of it. But what she does know is that together, she and Carden must pass a series of tests and trials. If they fail, game over. But if they succeed, she just might be able to restore her family and carve out the life she’s always envisioned.

My Thoughts

I received a copy of  Brutal Curse for my honest opinion.

At this point, I’m not even sure how many books I’ve devoured by Casey L. Bond, but I have yet to find one that isn’t spectacular.

She is a brilliant writer and her mind itself must be a magical, wonderous place to be.  Ms. Bond brings those thoughts from her mind and brings them to life for the reader on every page, every chapter, every book.  And there are not many authors in this genre that compare to Casey L Bond.

Brutal Curse, a loose retelling of Alice and Wonderland, is imaginative, creative and beyond unique. With both a strong plot and even stronger characters, you’ll find yourself sucked into the rabbit hole right from the beginning pages.

If you are looking for something different, a twist on the ordinary, then I highly recommend Brutal Curse by Casey L Bond.

I can easily give Brutal Curse 5 stars and I’ll throw in a glass of whiskey too.

My Thoughts

I received an ARC copy of Beauty’s Cursed Beast in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first book by Mary E Twomey.  I had not yet read the first book in the Cursed Beauty series and although the character from the first book make appearances it is not necessary to have read it.

Let me start by saying that I am not really a huge fan of fairy tales but after reading the blurb about Beauty’s Cursed Beast I was very much intrigued to read it.

I was hooked right from the first few pages.  There was no lull in this story for me.  I greedily turned every page until the very last one.  Miss Twomey took this children’s tale and renewed it, making it fresh and exhilarating and making it a tale made for an adult.

She painted vivid mind art with her words, taking you right into the story alongside Adam and Belle.  Making you fall in love with a beast who was really nothing more than lost man who needed love.

” All I want is for you to stay with me – to remember the man I was to you when all that’s left if the beast”

Beauty’s Cursed Beast in the perfect book to snuggle up to when you need some feel good words and the hope of something magical.

5 stars to Mary E Twomey for making me fall in love with a fairytale.

Review – Misteria – Cameo Renae

Misteria RB Banner

What’s It About….

Approached in the woods by a rather hideous, three-foot tall man-creature, William and Anna Archer are given a message from their mother via a crystal image1ball.  They are to follow the messenger though a magical portal to find her.

In this modern day fairy tale, the twelve year old, telepathic twins uncover a world hidden behind an enchanted mist conjured by five sorcerers to protect all magical beings from the human world. A world that is now terrorized by a dark and destructive force sweeping across the land, threatening their very existence.

The twins embark on a perilous quest to save their mother and the grandfather they never knew existed.  Fantasy has turned into reality for the Archer twins, and the safety of all magical beings now rests in their hands.

My Thoughts…

I received a copy of Misteria as part of Lady Ambers PR tour.

While I do not typically read MG/ YA novels, I was very much drawn to the cover of Misteria, which is stunning in itself and the storyline was a bonus.

Miss Renae wrote a story that is magical and incanting.  She vividly takes you along on the journey of Anna and Will making you feel like anything in your imagination can be possible.

It was written perfectly for its target age group and if you or your children are a fan of fantasy’s and fairy-tales than Misteria is a must read.  Where was this author when I was  younger???

Overall I give Misteria 4 magical stars.
