Synopsis from GoodReads:

Shade is thrown into the Land of Faerie when she meets a mysterious Teleen warrior, made of fire and electricity. Sent on a journey to obtain a rare magic only she can wield to save the Seelie forces against the Unseelie armies, she discovers her unique inner magic and possibly a difficult choice in love.

The Unseelie Queen Aveta is not one to trifle with. She hunts Shade down for her own devices and will destroy everything Shade loves to get what she wants.

After barely escaping the clutches of the Unseelie and stripped of her newfound magic, Shade journeys to the Ice Kingdom, The Great Divide, to hopefully retrieve her bound up powers from an Ancient Faerie King named Corb− but loses her memories instead. Alongside her body-guard Dylan, a former Captain of the Teleen Guard, she lays havoc to the Ice King’s fortress and forces their return to the Teleen kingdom. Hurrying to reach the Southern Realm, Shade claims her rightful throne and prepares for the upcoming battle with the Unseelie army.

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 11 Reading and Chat Updates


rating-iconReading and Chat Updatesrating-icon

Here is where I will be updating what I’m reading, how much I’ve read, If I’m done my book, my thoughts on it and if I participated in any chats. I made a separate post for challenges to simplify things for me and many challenges require you to write more than the allowed number of characters in a Tweet and I need to be able to link to them. Everything is nice and clean which makes it easier to find things which, I like.

Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 11: Goals and TBR


 This Bout of Books came at a perfect time for me since I recently came back from a vacation to Niagara Falls, Ontario and right before I left, I received an omnibus to read and review from one of my favourite authors. While on my vacation I read 0 pages, I’ve been back for a little over 2 weeks and I’ve read about… 60ish pages! I need an extra push to read this because, I’m super nervous since It’s my first time reading a book to review for an author and I can’t seem to find the will to read. It is a 3 book and 2 novella omnibus (of which I’ve only  read 1 novella so far) so I really want to get through a bunch of it before the end of Bout of Books. I also bought the 4th book “Ever Wrath” which I’m adding to my list, I really hope I can get through them all or most of them at least!

Synopsis from GoodReads:

Never tease anything that wants to eat you.

My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I’m just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise…”

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she’s willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.
