Entangled (Spellbound #1)Currently Reading : Entangled (Spellbound #1) by Nikki Jefford.  I had to give my pocket book a break and I found this free on Amazon.  So far it is good.

Up Next?

I am dying to read the rest of the Selection series, The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass, and The Guard, a short novela that goes with the series.   Other than that I’m not sure what else.  Time for something new!

Taste of Darkness (Healer #3) by Maria V Snyder

Taste of Darkness (Healer, #3). Taste of Darkness (Healer #3) by Maria V Snyder. Published Dec 31, 2013 by Harlequin MIRA. CDN $8.67 Kindle edition.

She’s fought death and won. But how can she fight her fears? Avry knows hardship and trouble. She fought the plague and survived. She took on King Tohon and defeated him. But now her heart-mate, Kerrick, is missing, and Avry fears he’s gone forever. But there’s a more immediate threat: The Skeleton King plots to claim the Fifteen Realms for his own. With armies in disarray and the dead not staying down, Avry’s healing powers are needed now more than ever. Torn between love and loyalty, Avry must choose her path carefully. For the future of her world depends on her decision (Goodreads excerpt)

I have to say that I am a big fan of Maria Snyder. She knows how to weave a great tale and keep you enthralled until the end. Her characters are so enjoyable and real that you have no choice but be swept away by their story and hang on every word to find out what happens. Taste of Darkness did not disappoint… other than the fact that it is over I loved every minute of reading it.

What else is there really to say about the end of the trilogy? It continues to amaze and delight, full of engaging twists and turns…I love the new Flea and his power (minor spoiler sorryJ) The newest foe to enter the realm is scary and twisted and really really gross! I won’t say any more. I’m glad I got to see a little more of little Danny and how he is faring with his new life.  And of course I enjoyed seeing Avery and Kerrick grow together despite his little issues that derived from the last book. (again no spoilers!)

I have to say this is one of my favorite stories. My only issue is that the chapters were not identified with the POV of the character. Sometimes this got a little confusing and I had to reread the first paragraphs to know who was talking. Other than that I’m a big fan.

5 stars for me!

Teaser Tuesday (July 8)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Cold air caressed my back. I rolled over, muttering at Kerrick for hogging the blanket, but stopped. Something felt …odd, wrong, missing. Opening my eyes, I confirmed the emptiness next to me. Kerrick was gone.
