Touch of Power (Healer, #1)Currently Reading : Touch of Power by Maria Snyder. Loving this book.  I enjoyed the Poison series as well and so far this is living up to that.

Up Next?

Champion (Legend, #3)Scent of Magic (Healer, #2) I might go with some sequels and finish the Legend series with Champion by Marie Lu or move onto the next in the Healer series Scent of Magic by Maria Snyder.  Not sure yet.

And as always you never know what little treasure will show up and DEMAND to be read.  Happy reading everyone.

Five (Elemental Emnity #1) by Christie Rich

Five (Elemental Enmity, #1)Five (Elemental Emnity #1) by Christie Rich.  Published August 2013 by Tarser Publishing.  CDN $FREE on kindle.

Rayla Tate dreams of escaping her ordinary world for a bright future in the art world. Throw in an overbearing aunt who is keeping major secrets, a disgruntled best friend tagging along to college, and a bunch of fae warriors waiting in the wings to claim her the minute she leaves her sleepy little town, and Rayla’s dreams are about to shatter. She soon discovers she is a coveted Elemental with power she never knew she possessed–a power that could change the world. Everywhere she turns another man tries to woo her. The weird part is she’s drawn to each one of them. Who are these strange men, and what dark power do they hold over her? Rayla must quickly learn to fend off these beautiful and seductive pursuers using any means necessary or find herself lost to the fae world forever. (Goodreads Excerpt)

This book really surprised me. I found it on my kindle and barely remember putting it there. I was searching for something to read while waiting for court (don’t worry I’m not in trouble, it was for work.) anyway. I read the first page and OMG I was hooked! I mean I read the damn thing in one sitting. I never do that. Well I never usually have time but holy catfish this was fantastic.

The MC Rayla is cool and feisty and desperately needing her independence. What she gets is a whole lotta trouble in the form of Wicked HOT bad guys/good guys who knows which and holy crap did I say that they were HOT! And they are fae and mess with your head and emotions and OMG I’m rambling. But that is what I felt reading this book. I couldn’t stop! OK take a breather….whew…

This is the first time reading this author and I love the writing style. You are swept along with the book and you drink in every detail. Not to the point that it is annoying but enough that you get it all. I love the originality of this story. I’m not sure I totally dig the whole bonding thing (I’m big on free will and all), but I definitely like the drama it creates. And the fae men, OMG they certainly put a new twist on things. I won’t give anything away but it was really interesting.

Teaser:

I reacted to him on a cellular level, as if he was a new source of gravity and I a wayward comet. An emotion I didn’t want to recognize stirred underneath my overpowering fear: undeniable need. My mind screamed at me to pull a one-eighty to get away from him yet my body craved to get closer to the stranger.

And this is only page 16!

Enough said I think?! 5 stars for me.

I was checking out a bunch of websites this week and came across these free ebooks that I couldn’t help but download on my kindle. I can’t wait to read them. I will post reviews as I get through them.

Product DetailsEnchantment (Channie #1) by Charlotte Abel

Sixteen year old Channie Kerns leads an idyllic life of seclusion and magic deep in the Ozark Mountains … until her family is forced to flee for their lives.

They leave everything and everyone behind to start over in Louisville, Colorado. Magic is forbidden while they are in hiding, but Channie can’t resist the temptation to enchant a group of local boys. When her overbearing parents catch her flirting with these “sex-crazed, non-magical delinquents,” they slap a chastity spell on her to protect her virtue.

The spell is triggered by lust, so just navigating the halls at her new school is an ordeal. She can’t even touch a boy she’s attracted to without blasting him with a jolt of magical energy that feels like a taser.

When Channie falls in love with Josh Abrim, a BMX racer with dangerous secrets of his own, she rebels against her parents and turns to dark and forbidden magic to break the chastity spell … with disastrous results. (Goodreads Excerpt)

Product Details13 on Halloween(Shadow #1) by Laura A.H. Elliott

Roxie has the best night of her life until the popular kids decide they want to celebrate her birthday in a way Roxie never expects––in her attic, with a gift that’s out of this world, and a pact to never tell a living soul what happens next.

Twelve-year-old Roxie wants to be like Adrianne, the popular girl who gets everything she wants––a flock to prowl around the mall with; invitations to parties; and for Hayden, the cutest guy in the eighth grade to, you know, notice her. When Roxie invites all the eighth grade peacocks (code word : popular kids) to her first ever thirteenth birthday party on Halloween, they all come and give her a gift that’s literally out of this world. Roxie astral projects to Planet Popular where she becomes seventeen instantly and gets everything she’s always wanted, but nothing is as it seems. Being a high school peacock is complicated and Roxie will risk everything to be who she thinks she wants to be. Oh yeah, there’s Prom, doppelgangers, a mysterious map, and lots of bad peacocks too. (Goodreads Excerpt)

All three of these were on sale on Amazon for a limited time. Awesome find if I do say so myself. If you have heard of them or read them please leave a comment.
