Synopsis

The Sting meets Fight Club in this magical, action-packed sequel to Caster by Elsie Chapman.

Yes, Aza Wu now has magic back. But like all things in her life, it has come at a great cost. After the tournament, Aza is able to pay off her parents’ debt to Saint Willow. Unfortunately, the cost of the gathering spell she used to strip Finch of his magic has put her permanently in the employ of the gang leader. Aza does little errands using real magic — collecting debts, putting the squeeze on new businesses in the district. But that had never been the plan. Saint Willow is nothing if not ambitious and having Aza as a fighter is much more lucrative than as a fixer. Especially if she can control the outcome. Aza is going to have to put it all on the line again to get out of this situation!

My Review

*I received a complimentary copy of Spell Starter from Caffiene Book Tours and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.**

Spell Starter is Elsie Chapman’s sequel to Caster. While I didn’t read the first book, I immensely enjoyed this story! The first few chapters offers a glimpse of Aza’s backstory leading up to her current state. Thus, I was able to follow along her struggles and connections while reading. This magical adventure certainly took me for an exciting ride!

Furthermore, Spell Starter involves a fighter struggling to rectify the past. Aza is bound to her enemy, yet seeks a pathway to freedom. Her families’ livelihood and good name are both on the line. As a result, Aza is caught in a bind between servitude and redemption.

Favorite ‘Spell Starter’ Quotes

Indeed, there are several quotes that definitely stand out in Spell Starter! Here are a few:

‘Some concepts can’t be shaken. They run deeper and longer than any gang rule.’

‘The image of the past fades. Leaving only the now’.

Everything here is only made possible by magic’.

‘A part of me wishes to tell her everything.’

Final Thoughts

In summary, Spell Starter is a thrilling book! If you love magical stories with strong female characters, this is the book for you!

Connections: Blogtober Day 3

Connections and relaxation make Saturdays perfect! My idea of rest is lunch at a local diner, book shopping, and chatting with friends. Of course, socially distant diner time (outdoor eating until further notice)! After a quick meal, we visited the local Barnes & Noble. During my visit, I bought the next selection for the B2Weird Book Club. October’s choice is The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter. I can’t wait to start reading it!

Poetic Connections

Additionally, I took care of some poetry therapy community building. I’ve been asked to coordinate a meeting with a possible new member in the organization I’m a part of. Our community shares deep connections with social service. For example, social workers, educators and therapists make up our group. Thus, anyone who wishes to join must go through a careful vetting process. We currently have members in the United States, Mexico, the UK, Ireland, Jamaica, and Japan. It’s wonderful to see our poetry therapy organization flourish around the world! Indeed, positive connections create a thriving network.

Friendships

Earlier I spoke to good college friends over Messenger. It’s been a few weeks since our last virtual chat. It was wonderful to speak to them again! We spoke for over two hours! My friends had the band Record Heat playing in the background. We watched their livestream event on Thursday, and it was great! Connections with good friends are very important!

What connections did you make today? Feel free to share below!

My Review

**I received a complimentary copy of Rice & Rocks from Hear Our Voices Book Tours. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

Finally, a children’s book that speaks to my younger self! Rice & Rocks is a heartwarming story about culture and traditions. Giovanni gets help from his loving Auntie and Jasper ( a magical parrot) to embrace his beloved family dinner rituals.

Being Puerto Rican myself, reading this story was a breath of nostalgia! When I was younger, rice and beans ruled family dinners. Our meals paired with lively conversation. Although our days varied, Rice and Beans was a permanent dinner staple. How I cherished those blessed moments with loved ones!

Sandra L. Richards creates a diverse world in Rice & Rocks. Giovanni visits many countries that holds food traditions in high regard. Also, Megan Sullivan’s illustrations spring to life! Each country Giovanni visits are vibrantly depicted. It’s as if we are really visiting each country!

In summary, Rice & Rocks is indeed a story children will adore! It’s a tale filled with teachable moments. Children will no doubt embrace this lovely story!

My Review

**I received a complimentary copy of Crackle and Fire from Blackthorn Book Tours, in exchange for an honest review.**

Crackle and Fire was a very fulfilling story! This book covers both Sci-Fi & Crime, which makes an intriguing combination. I loved the unique world building, as it blends space adventure with classic mystery. While the setting doesn’t fit one genre niche, I love the creative risks taken to bring this story to life!

Further, Angela Hardwicke is an eccentric lead character! We truly learn about her fiery persona as she solves the mystery at hand. Angela is no-nonsense in her approach, and we love to see it! Additionally, the side characters that assist her in solving the mystery are enjoyable. These actions certainly sets the stage for future books in the series.

To sum up, Crackle and Fire is a very strong introduction to Angela Hardwicke’s adventures. It features both an exciting world and a strong main character. You’ll certainly want to check it out!

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi | Review

The Silvered Serpents is Roshani Chokshi’s highly anticipated sequel to ‘The Gilded Wolves’! Severin, Laila and friends venture to Russia for a coveted treasure. However, deep trauma and guilt lingers!

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi. Link: https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1579631436l/45044785.jpg

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Length: 416 pages
Genre: YA Fantasy
Series: Book 2 of ‘The Gilded Wolves’ trilogy
Release Date: September 22, 2020

Synopsis

They are each other’s fiercest love, greatest danger, and only hope.

Séverin and his crew successfully thwarted the Fallen House, but victory came at a terrible cost — one that still haunts all of them. Desperate to make amends, Séverin pursues a dangerous lead to find a long lost artifact rumored to grant its possessor the power of God.

Their hunt lures them far from Paris, and into the icy heart of Russia where crystalline ice animals stalk forgotten mansions, broken goddesses carry deadly secrets, and a string of unsolved murders makes the crew question whether an ancient myth is a myth after all.

As hidden secrets come to the light and the ghosts of the past catch up to them, the crew will discover new dimensions of themselves. But what they find out may lead them down paths they never imagined.

The Silvered Serpents: My Review

**I received an eARC of ‘The Silvered Serpents’ through NetGalley and Wednesday Books, in exchange for an honest review.**

‘The Silvered Serpents’ was such a great read. Roshani Chokshi’s follow up to The Gilded Wolves did not disappoint!

We continue months after the harrowing events that occurred in Book 1. Severin and his crew venture into Russia for an important mission. They seek an object said to call upon the power of the gods. Even though Severin, Laila and the crew band together, the wounds from losing a loved one is still fresh. Each character struggles to move on with life. Relationships are severely strained, thus making the task of working together very complicated. However, they face any struggle encountered in Russia seamlessly. Indeed, their talents create a beautiful puzzle in piecing together the objects’ mystery.

I live for Severin and Laila’s chemistry! Roshani Chokshi added more layers to their characters in The Silvered Serpents. Further, their backstories blended magic into their individual journeys. Despite the severe complications and struggles this friendship circle endures, they persevere when working together. Insecurities run rampant, yet their bond strengthens as the story progresses.

Also, that cliffhanger? Huge! You’ll certainly want to read until the end. Then have your emotions torn to pieces as a result!

Final Thoughts on ‘The Silvered Serpents

In conclusion, ‘The Silvered Serpents’ is an excellent follow up to ‘The Gilded Wolves’! My pre-ordered copy is coming in the mail. I’m also anxiously awaiting Book 3!

He’s determined to find out what happened and tie up some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want.

The Skald’s Black Verse Synopsis

When a soldier’s murder sparks rebellion in the tiny village of Skolja, Brohr’s past marks him as the prime suspect. Haunted by his brother’s ghost, and drawn into a web of dark pacts and tangled loyalties, Brohr must choose between the path of vengeance set before him, and a chance to forge his own fate.

From the shadows, an all but extinct race of alien demigods have begun the end game of their millennia-spanning war, and one has chosen Brohr for his closing gambit. But Brohr’s grandfather harbors a dark secret that will change everything.

Above it all, a dread portent looms in the sky, spelling the death of Brohr’s world. With doom spiraling toward them, Brohr must lead an unlikely rebellion, unearth disturbing family secrets, and tame the raging ghost that haunts him. Can Brohr lead his people out of darkness, or will he succumb to his own terrifying bloodlust, and destroy the very people he has sworn to save?

My Review

**I received a copy of The Skald’s Black Verse from Storytellers on Tour, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

Brohr’s journey in The Skald’s Black Verse is dark from the start. His world is painted in great stress and conquest, and he and his companions fight to free themselves. The village itself is wonderfully detailed. You can see that Jordan Loyal Short took great lengths to describe Brohr’s story. While the first chapter is a bit uncomfortable (Brohr’s birth is the product of conquest), it leads into the bleak situation he’s embroiled in.

Highlights in ‘The Skald’s Black Verse’

  • Extremely detailed. The world is both rich and layered. You know that Brohr Anders and Lyssa fight in a battle that’s bigger than their circle.
  • Anti-hero. Brohr is indeed on a personal journey to redemption. Despite his questionable past, Brohr and his companions fight to make things right for their world.
  • Complex characters. Indeed, Anders and Brohr’s story originate from not-so-honorable causes. The Skald’s Black Verse follows Brohr’s quest to prove himself. He is plagued by a ghost that uses his vessel for rage. However, Brohr learns to (eventually) trust his instincts. While Lyssa’s development is not strong, she provides a good dynamic in this quest.

Content Warnings: The opening chapter is indeed tough to read. During Brohr’s birthing scene, you’re clued in that he’s the product of conquest/rape.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, I thought The Skald’s Black Verse is very thorough and complex. Additionally, it shares Brohr’s journey as a man embattled with rage while doing right for his people. I recommend this story for those who enjoy epic fantasy while learning about a character overcoming obstacles!
