seven sorcerers & shadow spell by Caro king review -annmarie

Nin had never liked Wednesdays, but this one took the biscuit. On this Wednesday she woke up to find that it was raining buckets and that her brother had ceased to exist. Ninevah realises she is the only person to remember Toby because whoever took him is about to make her disappear too. Enter Skerridge the Bogeyman, who steals kids for Mr. Strood. With his spindle, he draws all memories of Nin out of her mother's head. Nin escapes to the Drift, the world that her new friend Jonas and Mr. Strood inhabit. But the Drift is filled with the fabulous and the dreadful; tombfolk, mudmen, and the spirits of the seven sorcerers who once ruled the land. What is the secret of the Seven Sorcerers, and will Nin and Toby escape their fate at the House of Strood


Simeon Dark is the most powerful sorcerer in the land of the Drift. Mysterious, cunning, a shape-shifter, only he can stop the evil Strood and save the Drift from dying. But where is he? Nin finds her way to Dark's mansion - a strange castle with a garden and lake spilling into the sky. There she finds a ribbon of shadowy light: could this be the unsaid spell and the clue to unlocking the mystery of Simeon Dark? Meanwhile, Strood is preparing his distillation machine, his pet tigers and some barrels of blood and is coming after her...Caro King has created a funny, rich, thrilling adventure, interwoven with fantastical creatures, myth and magic.
my review
i loved both these books from the moment i picked them up. 
these series sucks you into a very dark world of strange beings and monsters and sometimes its hard to tell if there good or bad but that makes the book more fun trying to work it out. 
the story is so dark and imaginative there is just so much going on and there is just so much to love about both these books. 
both the covers really match well with the stories there eye catching and pull you in and while you should never just buy a book because of the cover i feel that in this case the cover is really what pulls you in but the story soon out shines everything. 

5 stars to both books.

embody release party by jamie magee





Some of us book pages have come together to celebrate the release of Embody, the sequel of Insight, by the one, the only, Jamie Magee. Part of the celebration Jamie has been kind enough to take time out to do an interview with all of us. And on with the show!

Hi Jamie! Welcome to the mad house of book pages! Thank you for taking time out of you busy life to answer some (or a lot) of our questions.


Hi everyone! This is absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to answer each of these questions. I’ve always loved how FB brings together not only friends and family, but leads us to new found friends that we would have never known otherwise!


Best Books: How did you get the idea for Insight?
I honestly feel like Insight found me. I had a craving for a unique love story that held paranormal elements that I have always found fascinating. In the beginning I only saw Willow ~ she in turn told me her story.





Peace, Love, Teen Fiction: How much research did you do for your book? Was it hard or did you enjoy it?

I completely enjoyed the research I did. The string theory is something that is truly studied – the element of alternate dimensions is just one of the many aspects the theory suggests. The ideas behind this theory are extremely fascinating and can cause anyone’s imagination to run wild. Looking into the Zodiac was almost like a personal awaking. I admit that I have barely begun to grasp the oldest science in the world, but I can’t help but find it odd how certain personality aspects are often reflected in our birth charts.





All Things Books: While writing do you require silence and to be left to your own devices or do you prefer it to be on the louder side with people around?
Silence is not really a word in my vocabulary J Even if I write in the dead of night while my family is sleeping I have my headphones in and music blaring!





Taking it One Book at a Time: Which character gave you the most trouble when writing? (i.e. changed appearances, personalities, turned into an asshole, lol)

I have to say Drake. Every good book has a villain - the one that everyone is meant to hate, but I couldn’t hate him. As Drake developed throughout the series it easy to see why I had the emotion from the very beginning. This character is very charismatic, gorgeous, and powerful – but he also has a different side that he will slowly reveal. I will tell you this – I’m glad I do not have to make the decisions that Willow Haywood does!





My Home Away From Home: Describe your book in 5 words or less.

This is such a hard question because I’m so bashful – umm lets go with this:



An addicting, compelling love-story.( at least I can say this is my goal description!)





Love Fantasy Novels: If you could be one character from your books who would you be?

I love them all, but I want to say Willow simply because the private moments between her, Landen, and Drake are the ones that seem to drive the story forward. If I were any other character I would deeply miss the emotions and insight the three of these characters bring.



Book Lover 1989: If you could write a novel with another author who would you choose and why?
J.K Rowling – I simply love her in-depth imagination.



Bookies: Was it difficult to come up with a title for your book?

In a way it was. I had called it ‘Gifted’ from the moment I began to write it, but after walking through the aisles of my local book store I discovered that title had been taken. I toyed with the idea of “Eight beyond the Sun and Moon” and countless others. I knew I wanted a one word title ( I don’t know why. I guess I was looking for simplicity) I went back and forth with my friends and family for weeks toward the publication day. One night I came home and handed my husband a list of possible titles. The expression on his face led me to believe he was not found of any of them. At that very moment the IPOD changed songs and now playing was “It ends to Tonight” by the All American Rejects. The last time I had heard that song was the night I’d written the ‘fight’ between Willow and Landen in Insight. As the course began to play my children began to sing along “Just a little Insight will make this right” my husband and I looked at each other and both said ‘Insight” at the same time. I’ve always found eerie that when you truly seek and answer you are always – even if by chance - led to the answer.





Bookaholics: How easy was it to write Embody after your experience with Insight?

I have often referred to Insight as my ‘first child’ in the realm of writing. Every part of it was a learning experience. As I wrote Insight I had to discover who each of the characters were – the world they lived in. Understanding who they were made it easier to express their emotions and reactions as the story of Embody came to life. Embody and the stories beyond the first two were far easier to master.


YA Books: If you become leader of the world, what would be the first thing that you'd do with your power?


Enforce the saying ‘pay it forward’ – is one of many steps I would take!

Book Reader Addicts: I know you have said before that with each book you are going to go more indepth with different characters. Do you have an order and how did you choose that order?

I have no order in mind lol. The main story through book four ( I’m at the mercy of the rest of the stories) focuses around three main characters Willow, Landen, and Drake. Their circumstances do bring other characters into focus and allow the reader to discover them.

Just before I begin writing any story and sometimes along the way I will write down random ideas I have – it could be anything from a phrase or a description. At the end I always look back – and invariable discover that the path the story took was not what I had in mind in the beginning. It is hard to say who will come forth in the future but I look forward to discovering them with each of you.



Best books: How do you feel when you’re writing?

Alive! It is the one thing I could do all day everyday and not expect anything in return. I love the rush of emotions – I’m sure it is quiet comical to watch me write – you will see everything from laughter to sadness– shocked expressions and anger. I’ve even been caught clapping.

Peace, Love, Teen Fiction: What is it like being a published author?

To this day I have not been able to fathom the idea. In my mind I’m simply sharing my words with a large group of friends!



All Things Books: Who is your dream cast should Insight ever be made into a movie?

I’ve been asked this before and I have yet to come up with an answer. I would hope that if this day came that the cast would be full of people who just needed one chance – that it would be their perfect ‘break’ and we would all indulge in the new found talent.





Taking it One Book at a Time: Who's the one author that can completely & utterly make you forget the outside world?

J.K Rowling – I love love love her imagination.



My Home Away From Home: What is one question that you have always wanted to be asked in an interview? How would you answer that question?



Ummm….what’s my favorite color???? – Purple J

Love Fantasy Novels: If you could have dinner with one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

I could go really deep here and reach back and say Nostrdamus – my purpose in this dinner would be to understand what he was ‘seeing’ when he made his prophecies – to apply them to modern life and debate the path of humanity.

Or- I could just be real and say Ben Burnley – I love this musician.. His lyrics have inspired scene after scene in my series – I would want to know what inspired him to write them in the first place, and of course – thank him!



Book Lover 1989: What are you top 5 favorite books/series of books?

Hard List to come up with….

Redeeming love – Francine Rivers

Charlotte’s Web – EB White (we all have to start somewhere!)

The Notebook/ Wedding - Nicholas Sparks

Harry Potter Series – J.K Rowling

Romeo & Juliet – William Shakespeare

Bookaholics: Do you write to a soundtrack and if so,what music was your inspiration whilst writing Embody?

Oh how I love music! Sometimes songs inspire writing and others simply remind me of the story. The Embody playlist I have now is:

My Never – Blue October

The Diary of Jane – Breaking Benjamin

Dear Agony – Breaking Benjamin

Point #1 - Chevelle

Bring Me to Life –Evanescence

Cold – Evans Blue

Eclipsed – Evans Blue

A Cross and a Girl Named Blessed – Evans Blue

Fair Fight – The Fray

Everything Will Be Alright – The Killers

Possibility – Lykke Li

Breathe Into Me - Red

All around Me - Fly Leaf
YA Books: If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower, what would your name be, and would you be a goodie or the baddie?

Scorpion – power: emotions – I would be good (Wait – I feel like I know someone like this?!) Sorry… I tried to be unique – but as my daughter would say ‘I got nothin’ lol



Book Reader Addicts: Since I have already read Embody I have to know….when is the third book coming out? (No, rush or anything. LOL)

I was so excited about the first reviews of Embody that I sent ‘Image’ to the editor the first week of May – I do not have a date set – but I can tell you it will be THIS year

Jamie, again thank you so much. I can not wait to read more from you. Before when end this is there anything else you would like to tell you readers?



I want to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to share this daydream with me – it means more than I could ever express in words!



If you haven’t read Insight yet I have one question for you. What are you waiting for? Go get in now. If you have read it then go pick up Embody. You can get these great books at Amazon.com,barnesandnoble.com, and smashwords.com.

One last thing! Jamie has a surprise for you! Tell them Jamie!

I know we all love release dates and SWAG – so for Embody’s release each page will have a swag bag – complete with an ebook version of Embody! Good luck everyone and happy reading!

Guest Post:



It is the small, almost insignificant moments – the ones we do without a thought or reason that often bring forth a wave of change in our lives. I never imagined that a thoughtless New Year’s resolution or opening a blank word document would lead me here today. As I write these words a smile is across my face and gratitude for all that my life has brought me is beaming from my soul.

I will never forget 1/1/09 - the first the day of New Year, the last year in decade and turning point in my life. I never expected that day would bring so many amazing characters, readers, authors and new found friends into my life – and now I live in a constant state of expectancy – I’ve learned to expect the unexpected because I have no idea where this series or my career will lead me – I just know that I plan to enjoy every smile and tear it may bring my way.

I cannot tell you how mind blowing it is for me to be releasing the second book in the Insight Series, Embody. The first flash – the vague image I had of Willow Haywood was almost painful. I remember feeling so sorry for her – heartbroken that she was where she was at that point in her life. I could only see Landen through her eyes at that moment and his urgency to reach her was alarming. I mulled over this image of a green eye girl in countless day dreams. I had to understand who she was – what her name was and what brought her to the moment I was seeing. Not knowing any of this I just began to write. I’ve said before I began Insight with “It was a warm day in Franklin” at that moment I had no idea that Chara existed – that Esterious existed – that the string was a breathtaking passage connecting all of humanity. All of the answers seem to rush at me at me at once and one by one the characters of the Insight series began to emerge and whisper their perception into my thoughts.
When I finished Insight I realized that the moment I’d seen had not come. It was an awkward moment in my life. One thought would tell me that I’d wasted three months of my life writing a story that would never be read – the next would tell me that this was simply the beginning. As I let my friends read Insight I found the moments I’d carved out to write in my life were empty – after successfully organizing every closet and drawer in my house my restlessness became too much for me to handle. Before I had the verdict from my friends on my story I began to write again. This time I didn’t start at the beginning like I had with Insight. I finally wrote the scene that I’d first seen in my mind’s eye. At first it felt like I was writing a book outside of the series but then Willow showed me how she reached that point. I’d written what is chapter 12 in Embody all the way to end before I had any feedback on Insight, at that point it didn’t matter if anyone else was in love with Willow and Landen – I was!

Undoubtedly through the life of Willow Haywood I have felt every emotion that the human soul can perceive. I cannot wait to share not only this story, but each one I have seen past this point with each of you. Thank you so much for experiencing this adventure with me!

review
first thoughts: to be honest at first i was not 100% shore if i was going to like it there was a lot of good reviews but i had a horrible feeling the book was going to be like many others i have read. i was wrong 


setting: the setting of the story was much like most story's but there was more to it while most novels have there story's based about a school but this setting was more then just like any other novel. the setting made the story amazing there was so much detail and care taken when the author wrote about gottfried academy. 


characters: all the characters were well together and interesting some stood out more then others and some you just plain hated because of the way they acted but all together i was really happy with the characters. 


cover: well the cover was the main thing that made me buy the book. its a beautiful cover with lots of light and dark green.


all together: i thought this was a well worth the read. there was a lot to the book and there was a exciting twist and the end that left me wanting more. while the start was a little slow at first you soon got into the book that held you with secrets and the mystery of the academy.

wintercraft & blackwatch (wintercraft series) by Jenna Burtenshaw review-annmarie

 spoilers maybe included...wintercraft 5 stars....blackwatch 4 and half stars...
wintercraft.
Ten years ago Kate Winters' parents were taken by the High Council's wardens to help with the country's war effort. Now the wardens are back...and prisoners, including Kate's uncle Artemis, are taken south on the terrifying Night Train. Kate and her friend Edgar are hunted by a far more dangerous enemy. Silas Dane -- the High Council's most feared man -- recognises Kate as one of the Skilled; a rare group of people able to see through the veil between the living and the dead. His spirit was damaged by the High Council's experiments into the veil, and he's convinced that Kate can undo the damage and allow him to find peace. The knowledge Kate needs lies within Wintercraft -- a book thought to be hidden deep beneath the graveyard city of Fume. But the Night of Souls, when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest, is just days away and the High Council have their own sinister plans for Kate and Wintercraft. To help Artemis, Edgar and herself, Kate must honour her pact with a murderer and come face to face with the true nature of death.


blackwatch
Kate has escaped the clutches of the High Council and Silas has left Albion for the continent. But their lives are forever linked and as the veil weakens, causing Albion's skilled to fear for everyone's safety, Silas and Kate find themselves drawn together by the mysterious and corrupt Dalliah Grey.

annmarie's review

i loved both of these book there are unlike any series i have read before. The characters are so likeable and fun to read about. The story line in both the books are gripping and at time can be very dark. life and death are always close together and you learn that the characters are always close to the end and it drives you to read more and hope for the best. i love the first book wintercraft and have read it twice while the new book blackwatch was a great follow on and just as amazing the end was shocking and made me angry that i can read the next book as its not out yet. my need for the next on is great. 
while i loved the book i do feel that not everyone well like then there is a lot of murder and no romance maybe later on in the next book there will but for know the series more about fighting for life and freedom and staying alive. 
wintercraft 5 stars....blackwatch 4 and half stars

Price of Admission and The Taming of the Werewolf by Sylvia Shults

 Price of Admission and The Taming of the Werewolf


Music touches our hearts, molds our lives, strengthens our souls. For Jessica Taylor, though, life has become monotonous, a simple tune played over and over to the point of exhaustion. Then she meets Max, a gifted musician, who brings the melody back into her life. But Max is hiding his own secrets...like the fact that he’s a three-hundred-year-old immortal. It’s the power of music that gives Max his eternal youth, and the power of music that draws Max and Jessica closer together. But as Jessica finds herself falling for Max, circumstances threaten to destroy their newfound happiness. Ghosts from Max’s long past return to haunt them both. Will the secrets of Max’s past drive them apart? What chance does a mortal woman have to gain the love of an immortal? Will the price of admission be more than either of them can bear?
 
The Taming of the Werewolf: 
What a hoot ...  Price of Admission and The Taming of the Werewolf is a mistress of mashups! The Taming of the Werewolf is highly recommended for anyone who has ever wondered how Shakespeare would have handled werewolves. Great fun!"  -- Vicki Lewis Thompson, New York Times bestselling author of A Werewolf in Manhattan

Sylvia Shults

"Sylvia Shults is the princess of darkness, a mistress of malevolent miracles...and her lean, mean prose will keep your nightlight on well past your bedtime. Highly recommended." -- Jay Bonansinga, national bestselling author of FROZEN, TWISTED, and THE SINKING OF THE EASTLAND


"Price of Admission is beautifully composed, brilliantly executed. Sylvia Shults plays upon the English language, like a master musician on a fine-tuned instrument." -- Andrea Jones, award-winning author of HOOK & JILL

annmarie: i am lucky enough to have the chance to read both books once i have read them ill post me review :D

captivated an affliction novel by D. Apodaca review by alice





THIS IS A DNF(DID NOT FINISH) REVIEW


Mindy Keenan couldn't shake the feeling that somehow...in a matter of moments...the boy she once knew was not the one standing before her.

After Mindy's childhood best friend, Dean Aiken, shuts her and everyone else out of his life, she learns to move on. Years pass and she gets used to the fact that he's no longer a part of her life, but things begin to change...

Mindy's new best friend, Markus Medina, witnesses Dean kill two people behind a club. Mindy has a hard time believing him, especially when he mentions that the bodies disappear. Poof! Into thin air. Markus decides he has to follow Dean around in order to get evidence that he's been killing people, so he doesn't sound like a nut to the police. Despite Marcus crazy theories about the possibility of Dean not being human. And not to mention the fact that he's dangerous. Mindy can't help that she may be falling in love with him.

Even after hiding their feelings for each other from the world. Dean and Mindy being together stirs up dangers that neither of them could ever imagine. When she finds out about what Dean really is and the world he tried to keep her away from...it's already too late.

Bite club by Rachel Caine review-annmarie

5 stars
i recommend this book.
may include spoilers
After discovering that vampires populate her town, college student Claire Danvers knows that the undead just want to live their lives. But someone else wants them to get ready to rumble. 

There's a new extreme sport getting picked up on the Internet: bare- knuckle fights pitting captured vampires against each other-or humans. Tracking the remote signal leads Claire- accompanied by her friends and frenemies-to discover that what started as an online brawl will soon threaten everyone in Morganville.



ill start by saying im a massive morganville fan!!
after a series get so many books i start to worry that the series will get boring but this series just keeps getting better. i read the book in less than a day and i was loving every page...the characters are so likeable and the book setting is one of a kind but what i love most about this book is EVERYTHING!! its amazing and one of my favourite ones so far. if you like vampires you need this series you have not lived till you read this series so so good there are no words that cover how amazing this series and this book is.
i loved it and there are no word that could cover this book greatness.

hush hush & crescendo by Becca fitzpatrick review-annmarie

 may include spoilers. 
i recommend these books
hush hush 5 stars & crescendo 4 stars 

hush hush
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along. 
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel. 
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.


review
hush hush
i was blow away by this book the book had been sitting in my to be read list for months and month but a friend of mine pushed me into reading it. im so glad i read it. it was exciting and funny and everything a book should be. i fell in love with patch with after the first few chapters and i felt light after reading it. The story line was origanal and fun i loved every minute page of the book.

5 stars

Crescendo
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. 

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something. 

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts


crescendo
well i loved this book to but there are a few thing that ticked me right off. nora is short tempered and nasty to much. patch was pig headed and would not open up. vee well she was just being vee pushing and ignoring what ever nora said. it kind of got hard reading while all the characters were being horrible it made me want to stop reading the book but got to the end and wow. the ending was amazing and breath taking but it does not make up for all the dead bits in the book but im glad i read it and i enjoyed it.

4 stars
