MY REVIEW:

**** I RECIEVED this book for free in exchange for a honest review. ****

Wow, where do I even start?

This book was so imaginative and brilliant that I was blown away at every twist and turn that happened. Oh and believe, there were A Lot. I haven’t read something this imaginative since Demorn: Blade of Exile by David Finn. This book had so many twists and turns it was like reading a maze.

Now this book was a slow read but you had to make sure that you read every single detail so you didn’t miss a thing. If you miss a detail then the book wouldn’t make sense. And there were plenty of details because so much was happening throughout the book. You were in a chair at the edge the whole time wondering what was next.

There was witchcraft, sins, darkness, shadows and reanimated corpses. There was mystery and intrigue and death around every corner of the page. This book is a piece of art. I truly don’t know how this book was wrote without going through a little madness in the midst. A very creative book too. So much went on that in surprised I didnt get a headache and whiplash. The Shadow Fabric is most definitely a masterpiece . I think this book is a great way to start a Halloween reading list. This is one loaded book.

Thank you for reading my review, I hope you enjoyed it.

Book Haul: #Follow

So I went to the Goodwill in my town and found 2 books that sounded good to me. I also got this cool pillow from my aunt and thought that it would look good in the picture.

Now I’ve been wanting to read The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan for quite some time now. The other book is called Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth’s blurb:

In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?

Blood Fever’s Blurb:

It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees has descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.

Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.

But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…

APPARENTLY, Blood Fever is book 3, so I’ll have to find the first two books before I read it. Oh well. It was a good book haul. I hope you enjoyed my post and have a good afternoon!

REVIEW:

***** I RECIEVED THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. *****

When I first starting reading this book I was pulled in by the brilliance of the words and story right away. I couldn’t put this book down, I had to finish it. The main character Katie is really interesting and I would love to read more about her. I’ll have to get Gorman’s other book Blackwater Val to read more about her.

I was immediately trying to figure out who the killer was. I was right when guessing who the killer was too. There was just something about that character that screamed Killer. I was definitely not disappointed with this book. There were so many details of horror and then there was some vile stuff too. Some of the scenes in the book could be straight out of a horror movie. Gorman did a great job with this book and I can’t wait to read more of his work.

I hope you enjoyed my review. I certainly enjoyed writing it.

I just bought this book at barnes and noble today. I’m glad I finally have the classic book that I’ve heard so much about. I’m still reading The shadow Fabric. I’m 27% of the way through it.

I am about 23% of the way through this book on my kindle app on my phone. So far this book is really interesting. It has already talked of the the reanimated dead, witchcraft, the novel of sins and the Great Fire of London. Leo’s memory is still a mystery but the Shadow Fabric is definitely a malevolent force that controls darkness. I let you guys know how I feel about that when I do the review. This is a good horror novel so far.

Before Josselyn Thorn- Cyprus Reyner, Victoria d’Audrieu and Isabelle Rhodes had their own stories to tell. Requiem, the bundle of Whispers from the Past, includes Roar, Remember, React, and- as a special bonus- Raucous. Enjoy these tales as a sequel to The Whispers of Rings and let yourself share in their pain, loss, joy, and determination.

Review:

While reading this book I got to talk to the author at the same time. I got to know these characters through her eyes and my own. I love these characters as if I had written them myself. I adore Cyprus, he is my favorite. The Dragon that does not roar. There is a reason why he says that in the book and I love the reason why. It was a brilliant on Catherine”s part to have that in the book and to try and make him understand why some people are afraid of what they don’t know. I also think that people are afraid of things that they don’t understand so they try to stay away from them. But at the same time you don’t know what you are missing until you interact with them.

I just love Cyprus. Did I say that already? Well, I said it again. I also love how him and Victoria interacted. It was perfect. I felt everything throughout their journey together. I laughed, loved , cried, Everything. It was beautiful.

I felt the injustice and unjust of the corrupted family’s cruel business. I couldn’t believe that something like that could be going on in Jeremi’s family. I felt that same horror that Victoria did. Jeremi is not my favorite character but he’s not my least favorite either, that would be Adrian. Jeremi couldn’t stop the family business because it was too big but it doesn’t make him a bad person.

I loved the ceremony between Isabelle, Cyprus and Josselyn. It was touching and beautiful. I loved that moment! The whole idea of becoming a Ring is a beautiful thing and it works out perfectly for these three.

It was also cool that we got to read about Hildes story too. I liked that a lot. I wondered how she started her tavern. Overall, I adored this book. I was extremely attached to these characters and I got emotional when the characters did. I loved this book so much. It really is worth a read.
