Recent Reads: Shadowhunters Once Again


Recent Reads is feature here on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookly app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). I am almost caught up on all the Shadowhunter novels, so all about Shadowhunters once again.

On My Shelf: Sweet Venom by: Tera Lynn Childs

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.


I actually forgot I even owned this one until I was scrooling through my nook app. I haven't bought books through nook in years so I have had this one for quite some time. I honestly don't even remember much about this one, but reading the synopsis I do like the medusa aspect.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Excerpt & Giveaway: Smoke And Iron by: Rachel Caine

Goodreads | Amazon
To save the Great Library, the unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone, Paper and Fire, and Ash and Quill put themselves in danger in the next thrilling adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.
The opening moves of a deadly game have begun. Jess Brightwell has put himself in direct peril, with only his wits and skill to aid him in a game of cat and mouse with the Archivist Magister of the Great Library. With the world catching fire, and words printed on paper the spark that lights rebellion, it falls to smugglers, thieves, and scholars to save a library thousands of years in the making...if they can stay alive long enough to outwit their enemies.

Excerpt:

It had all started as an exercise to fight the unending boredom of being locked in this Alexandrian prison cell.
When Jess Brightwell woke up, he realized that he’d lost track of time. Days blurred here, and he knew it was important to remember how long he’d been trapped, waiting for the axe to fall—or not. So he diligently scratched out a record on the wall using a button from his shirt.
Five days. Five days since he’d arrived back in Alexandria, bringing with him Scholar Wolfe and Morgan Hault as his prisoners. They’d been taken off in different directions, and he’d been dumped here to—as they’d said—await the Archivist’s pleasure.
The Archivist, it seemed, was a very busy man.
Once Jess had the days logged, he did the mental exercise of calculating the date, from pure boredom. It took him long, uneasy moments to realize why that date—today—seemed important.
And then he remembered and was ashamed it had taken him so long.
Today was the anniversary of his brother Liam’s death. His elder brother.
And today meant that Jess was now older than Liam had ever lived to be.
He couldn’t remember exactly how Liam had died. Could hardly remember his brother at all these days, other than a vague impression of a sharp nose and shaggy blondish hair. He must have watched Liam walk up the stairs of the scaffold and stand as the rope was fixed around his neck.
But he couldn’t remember that, or watching the drop. Just Liam, hanging. It seemed like a painting viewed at a distance, not a memory.
Wish I could remember, he thought. If Liam had held his head high on the way to his death, if he’d gone up the steps firmly and stood without fear, then maybe Jess would be able to do it, too. Because that was likely to be in his future.
He closed his eyes and tried to picture it: the cell door opening. Soldiers in High Garda uniforms, the army of the Great Library, waiting stone-faced in the hall. A Scholar to read the text of his choice to him on the way to execution. Perhaps a priest, if he asked for one.
But there, his mind went blank. He didn’t know how the Archivist would end his life. Would it be a quiet death? Private? A shot in the back? Burial without a marker? Maybe nobody would ever know what had become of him.
Or maybe he’d end up facing the noose after all, and the steps up to it. If he could picture himself walking without flinching to his execution, perhaps he could actually do it.
He knew he ought to be focusing on what he would be saying to the Archivist if he was called, but at this moment, death seemed so close he could touch it, and besides, it was easier to accept failure than to dare to predict success. He’d never been especially superstitious, but imagining triumph now seemed like drawing a target on his back. No reason to offend the Egyptian gods. Not so early.
He stood up and walked the cell. Cold, barren, with bars and a flat stone shelf that pretended at being a bed. A bare toilet that needed cleaning, and the sharp smell of it was starting to squirm against his skin.
If I had something to read . . . The thought crept in without warning, and he felt it like a personal loss. Not having a book at hand was a worse punishment than most. He was trying not to think about his death, and he was too afraid to think about the fate of Morgan or Scholar Wolfe or anything else . . . except that he could almost hear Scholar Wolfe’s dry, acerbic voice telling him, If only you had a brain up to the task, Brightwell, you’d never lack for something to read.
Jess settled on the stone ledge, closed his eyes, and tried to clearly imagine the first page of one of his favorite books. Nothing came at his command. Just words, jumbled and frantic, that wouldn’t sort themselves in order. Better if he imagined writing a letter.
Dear Morgan, he thought. I’m trapped in a holding cell inside the Serapeum, and all I can think of is that I should have done better by you, and all of us. I’m afraid all this is for nothing. And I’m sorry. I’m sorry for being stupid enough to think I could outwit the Archivist. I love you. Please don’t hate me.
That was selfish. She should hate him. He’d sent her back into the Iron Tower, a life sentence of servitude and an unbreakable collar fastened tight around her neck. He’d deceived Scholar Wolfe into a prison far worse than this one, and an inevitable death sentence. He’d betrayed everyone who’d ever trusted him, and for what?
For cleverness and a probably foolish idea that he could somehow, somehow, pull off a miracle. What gave him the right to even think it?
Clank.
That was the sound of a key turning in a heavy lock.
Jess stood, the chill on his back left by the ledge still lingering like a ghost, and then he came to the bars as the door at the end of the hall opened. He could see the hinges move and the iron door swinging in. It wasn’t locked again when it closed. Careless.
He listened to the decisive thud of footsteps against the floor, growing louder, and then three High Garda soldiers in black with golden emblems were in front of his cell. They stopped and faced him. The oldest—his close-cut hair a stiff silver brush around his head—barked in common Greek, “Step back from the bars and turn around.”
Jess’s skin felt flushed, then cold; he swallowed back a rush of fear and felt his pulse race in a futile attempt to outrun the inevitable. He followed the instructions. They didn’t lock the outer door. That’s a chance, if I can get by them. He could. He could sweep the legs out from under the first, use that off-balance body to knock back the other two, pull a sidearm free from one of them, shoot at least one, maybe two of them. Luck would dictate whether he’d die in the attempt, but at least he’d die fighting.
I don’t want to die, something in him that sounded like a child whispered. Not like Liam. Not on the same day.
And suddenly, he remembered.
The London sky, iron gray. Light rain had been falling on his child’s face. He’d been too short to see his brother ascend anything but the top two steps of the scaffold. Liam had stumbled on the last one, and a guard had steadied him. His brother had been shivering and slow, and he hadn’t been brave after all. He’d looked out into the crowd of those gathered, and Jess remembered the searing second of eye contact with his brother before Liam transferred that stare to their father.
Jess had looked, too. Callum Brightwell had stared back without a flicker of change in his expression, as if his eldest son was a stranger.
They’d tied Liam’s hands. And put a hood over his head.
A voice in the here and now snapped him out of the memory. “Against the wall. Hands behind your back.”
Jess slowly moved to comply, trying to assess where the other man was . . . and froze when the barrel of a gun pressed against the back of his neck. “I know what you’re thinking, son. Don’t try it. I’d rather not shoot you for stupidity.”
The guard had a familiar accent—raised near Manchester, most likely. His time in Alexandria had covered his English roots a bit, but it was odd, Jess thought, that he might be killed by one of his countrymen, so far from home. Killed by the English, just like Liam.
Once a set of Library restraints settled around his wrists and tightened, he felt strangely less shaken. Opportunity was gone now. All his choices had been narrowed to one course. All he had to do now was play it out.
Jess turned to look at the High Garda soldier. A man with roots from another garden, maybe one closer to Alexandria; the man had a darker complexion, dark eyes, a neat beard, and a compassionate but firm expression on his face. “Am I coming back?” he asked, and wished he hadn’t.
“Likely not,” the soldier said. “Wherever you go next, you won’t be back here.”
Jess nodded. He closed his eyes for a second and then opened them. Liam had faltered on the stairs. Had trembled. But at the end his elder brother had stood firm in his bonds and hood and waited for death without showing any fear.
He could do the same.
“Then, let’s go,” he said, and forced a grin he hoped looked careless. “I could do with a change of scenery.”

Book Review: Onyx & Ivory by: Mindee Arnett

Release Date: May 15, 2018
from Balzer + Bray
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I recieved a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"They call her Traitor Kate. It’s a title Kate Brighton inherited from her father after he tried to assassinate the high king years ago. Now Kate lives as an outcast, clinging to the fringes of society as a member of the Relay, the imperial courier service. Only those most skilled in riding and bow hunting ride for the Relay; and only the fastest survive, for when dark falls, the nightdrakes—deadly flightless dragons—come out to hunt. Fortunately, Kate has a secret edge: she is a wilder, born with magic that allows her to influence the minds of animals. But it’s this magic that she needs to keep hidden, as being a wilder is forbidden, punishable by death or exile. And it’s this magic that leads her to a caravan massacred by nightdrakes in broad daylight—the only survivor her childhood friend, her first love, the boy she swore to forget, the boy who broke her heart.

The high king’s second son, Corwin Tormane, never asked to lead. Even as he waits for the uror—the once-in-a-generation ritual to decide which of the king’s children will succeed him—he knows it’s always been his brother who will assume the throne. And that’s fine by him. He’d rather spend his days away from the palace, away from the sight of his father, broken with sickness from the attempt on his life. But the peacekeeping tour Corwin is on has given him too much time to reflect upon the night he saved his father’s life—the night he condemned the would-be killer to death and lost the girl he loved. Which is why he takes it on himself to investigate rumors of unrest in one of the remote city-states, only for his caravan to be attacked—and for him to be saved by Kate.

With their paths once more entangled, Kate and Corwin have to put the past behind them. The threat of drakes who attack in the daylight is only the beginning of a darker menace stirring in the kingdom—one whose origins have dire implications for Kate’s father’s attack upon the king and will thrust them into the middle of a brewing civil war in the kingdom of Rime."

My Thoughts:

I was immediately drawn to this book because of that cover and the concept was so so cool. Magic and horses and romance? Sign me up. Plus I really enjoyed Mindee Arnett’s Avalon duology, so I was excited to see her take on high fantasy.

I have to start with Kate because I loved her. She is so strong and she will not be kept down. She is known to everyone as Traitor Kate, but she doesn’t let that stop her from making a life for herself. She is a fierce Relay Rider and if she were anyone else people would be fawning all over her and her skills. The Relay Riders were super cool and I do wish I had gotten to see more of them. I also really liked Corwin. He really comes into his own over the course of the book and I really enjoyed his growth. He comes to terms with who he is and who he is meant to be and what he wants for his kingdom. Of course I was rooting for him and Kate because they are forbidden and that just makes me want it to happen all the more. It was the perfect amount of angst.

I also really enjoyed our side characters. Bonner was such a sweetheart. And Signe was fierce and awesome. But my favorite of all was Dal. Oh him and that smart mouth won me over incredibly quick. I loved all of these characters and I loved their dynamic together. And I also hated the appropriate people. I especially want to take Prince Edwin and push him off a cliff.

My only complaint with Onyx & Ivory is that the pacing can be a bit slow. It got off to a good start and kicked off quick and the ending was really awesome and action packed. But for a bit there in the middle it dragged. I think there could have been a bit cut out from the middle there to make the story flow a bit better. But in the end it didn’t overly impact my enjoyment of the book. I still really liked the story.

Onyx & Ivory is a really good high fantasy that establishes an interesting world. I can’t wait to see where Mindee Arnett takes this series.

Book Review: A Court Of Frost And Starlight (A Court Of Thorns And Roses #3.1) by: Sarah J. Maas

Release Date: May 1, 2018
from Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Goodreads | Amazon

"Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.

Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court."


My Thoughts:

Picking up a new book in this series is like going home. I’ve come to love this world and these characters so much and I could read about them forever. I was so excited for this novella and it delivered in every way.

I forever love Rhys and Feyre and getting a glimpse into their lives post A Court of Wings And Ruin was so wonderful. They are both still coping and learning how to live with the tragedy they have been through, but they are also happy and grateful for the life they’ve been given together. I loved watching them just being together without a big threat looming and seeing them just be. I just forever love these two so much.

And of course I love my Court Of Dreams. I forget how I ever survived the first book without them because they just feel so vital to it all and then I remember there was a time without them and HOWWWWW. Azriel is forever my favorite and somehow I came to love him even more in this one. Cassian is still a riot, but also has so much more going on than he lets on. I love Mor and admire her for her strength and resilience. And Amren is… well… she’s Amren. I’ve also really come to love Elain and admire her own brand of strength. And then there is Nesta. I swear I want to love her, because I admire her strength and complexities, but girl makes me crazy. I’m like Rhys in many ways. I want to be kind and like her because Feyre loves her so much. But I also cannot forgive her for what she did and how she treated Feyre for years. Especially when she is still doing these things. But again I feel for her because I know she hasn’t had it easy. I also liked seeing Tamlin again because that douche canoe got what he deserved.

A Court Of Frost And Starlight gave me everything I was expecting from the story. It gave me a glimpse into their lives and I got to see how they were rebuilding and moving on. But it also laid the foundation for the rest of the series and books. There is clearly unrest and trouble brewing and even though Hybern has been dealt with, it doesn’t mean the problems just poofed away. I can’t wait to see how it all plays out. And that sneak peek at the end has me excited. Although I probably shouldn’t have read it cause the next book is so far. Arghhh.

All in all, A Court Of Frost And Starlight was a wonderful read and I easily devoured it in one sitting. I’m forever in love with this world and I’m so glad there is more to come.

My Thoughts:

This book was a really quick read and it was a lot of fun and was super sweet. It’s the kind of book that is easy to read in one sitting and to get lost in for a bit.

Romy is a character that a lot of people can relate to. She can be insecure at times and doubts herself. She is trying to get her footing and figure out what she wants in life. I liked her a lot and really felt for her. I also really liked Elio. He is such a sweetheart and so so charming. He is a single Dad and the way he is with his daughter Coco will melt your heart. These two clearly belong together and they dance around each other and it was so sweet.

A lot of this book hinges on miscommunication though and it can be SO FRUSTRATING at times. So much of this could have been solved with a conversation between the two people, but they both jumped to conclusions and got stubborn. And even though this is frustrating it’s not unbelievable. People get hurt and don’t always act rationally, so while it’s hard to watch these two go through this, it’s not out of the ordinary. And there was a twist thrown in there that threw me for a bit, so that was fun.

All in all, Bittersweet was a good read and I really enjoyed it. I’ve loved Carmen Jenner for a while now and this team up with Lauren K. McKellar was a hit. If you’re looking for something fun, you can’t go wrong here.

Bittersweet_Jenner_McKellar_Tease_V_2.jpg

Excerpt:
Confident I no longer look like a cave troll, I grab my keys and wallet and rush downstairs. Elio is just turning the sign in the window when I virtually slam my body against it because I was running full-tilt down the stairs, and I can’t slow my velocity. He gives a startled laugh, and I flame bright red. Elio abandons his ‘closed sign and opens the door.“Hey.” “Hi. Sorry about that.” “Couldn’t wait to see me, huh?” His eyes burn with mischief. I blush and desire arcs through me, because really, it should be illegal for anyone to look that delicious in jeans and a T-shirt with a dishtowel slung over his shoulder. “Ha! Yeah.” I shake my head.“I mean no. I mean, Coffee. I’m lagging. Please, I’m really sorry. I know you’re closed and you wanna get home, and why wouldn’t you? It’s not like you want to stay at the shop all day when there’s wine to drink and cheese to nibble and classic books to read.” He frowns.“That’s your impression of me? That I nibble cheese while reading classic literature.” “And the wine,” my mouth supplies unhelpfully. He chuckles.“You may need a crash course in what men do after work. Here’s a hint: it’s not nibbling anything. Unless, of course, it comes to ear lobes.” Oh, wow. Okay. I would definitely prefer that to an expensive gouda. He grins.“Come on. I’ll do you better than just a coffee.” “Excuse me?” I squeak. Now he laughs outright.“Relax, Romy. My nonna is here, my sister too, and a bossy four-year-old. I promise, I won’t bite.” Not even if I want you to?
