Hourglass (Hourglass #1) Myra McEntire REVIEW

Hourglass (Hourglass, #1)

          One chance to re-write the past..

REVIEW

Characters:Emerson Cole,Michael Weaver,Liam Ballard,Kaleb Ballard,Lily etc.

Emerson ‘Em’ Cole is a damaged teenager,her parents died in a car crash and she was caught arguing with…air.Pretty Crazy huh? Institutionalized and branded ‘freak’ by people.Emerson’s life is barely sunshine and kittens
First of all,her life is CRAZY.I would have been crazy,If I were her.I loved the strong character Em was,how she dealt with it,even though her life is broken.
Now living with her brother and his wife.Em is trying to get her life back,while hiding a very big secret,the one which got her committed. Many people tried helping Em ( who were all hoaxes ) but no one got it right.When Emerson gave up hope,Hope came is a gorgeous form of Michael Weaver
Its impossible not to love Michael the second you first read about him.He has the perfect look, mysterious aura and personality to charm a girl.He has secrets himself and is in all sense:Irresistible,but his intentions are only limited to using Emerson’s qualities to save a wrongly murdered man 6 months ago.
yes,this book has time travel!
but would his plan work accordingly?
Emerson has been Forbidden to have a relationship with Michael by her brother,but when Emerson agrees to work with Michael. Can she do it without having feelings for him?
The chemistry between the two rocked! I loved the way Em and Michael understood each other,and when there was jealousy…it was….wow! I have a soft spot for forbidden love and it was truly enjoyable romance.
Along with some major ass-kicking.
But saving someone by going back in time isn’t without consequences and Emerson will find it out in an hard way.Can she make the right decision- even if it means to give up the person she loves?
The time traveling part isn’t very big,but will have a significant impact on the story.Yes.It was a wee bit predictable but it was all good in end. I loved how the plot spun,one second, there was happiness and the other,there was sadness.
The villains and the betrayal was shocking and I cannot wait to know what happens after this!

Rating:This hell of a book deserves 5 stars!

Note:The second and the third book of this series is from different point of view, so those who like a continuous protagonist’s point of view,you might not find the other books in the series appealing.

WARNING: If you don’t like forbidden romance,Time-traveling,major cliffhangers.This series is not for you!

But

Those who like rocking romances,hot lead characters and a bit of humor.You will love this one!

 

“Aren’t I supposed to be brave, fearless? Isn’t that what the world expects?”
“Screw what the world expects. Think about all the things you’ve faced. You cracked, but you didn’t break. You’re still standing. I’d call that fearless. You’ve already conquered so much.”

Awaken ( Abandon trilogy #3) Meg Cabot REVIEW!

Awaken (Abandon Trilogy, #3)

REVIEW

Characters:Pierce Oliveira,John Hayden,Alex,Frank,Kayla etc.

The Furies are back for revenge,To hurt John and Pierce and to keep them apart…and this time, for ever,
Can Pierce Olievera stop it?

We were first introduced to Pierce by Meg Cabot as almost-Persephone, who was according to legends, Hades consort.
I love Greek Mythology, especially Hades and Persephone, It shows how a man, who is incapable of feelings, can show love.
Same as John Hayden.
Now, John Hayden is the lead and Pierce’s love interest.He is enigmatic,charming,protective with a shattered soul.He loves Pierce and would not stop at anything to keep them apart.

Death has her in her clutches,but Pierce does not want to let it go
Now,what can be better than Meg’s humor along with her talent to make sexy characters?

But before They can have any happy ending, Pierce has to take her final stand against the Furies…and the one possessing her grandmother.To ensure peace on Isla Huesos and The Underworld and her own happy ending

the Final installment is here

This book is what I call a perfect Hangover, It was sad to say goodbye to the characters who stayed with me so long…But at the end I was satisfied with how it turned out.It is one hell-of-a-series you should not miss!

Warning:If you don’t like Strong male leads,sweet funny reads, romance and mythology Unfortunately,this series is not for you

BUT
If you love turn-of-the-century romances,a good laugh and in  general-beautiful stories then this series is begging you to read it!

Image

REVIEW:
Characters:Calaena Sardothien,Chaol Westfall,Prince Dorian,Princess Nehemia etc.

Calaena Sarthodien is back…with more mysteries to solve than ever.
There is something about Sarah’s writing…she can constantly keep you on edge, make you cry in one page and happy in the second.For those who are eagerly waiting to read it..I can promise you that you wont be disappointed At all!

18 year old assassin, Calaena Sarthodien is back as King’s Champion,She has to kill and abide by the rules set by the king, to remain as the Best Assassin, to ensure Nehemia, her family and Chaol to live, But when king’s evil plans unveil..What would Calaena do?

The story plot is immensely rich! All I can say is wow..
All I can give you is a glimpse of what you will discover:-
Evil mythical creatures, secret passages in the Castle ( more of them,atleast), a member from the Ironteeth Clan which destroyed the Witch kingdom,Magic..and a chilling riddle which will change everything

Celaena has to stop the rebellion which is threatening to overthrow the king,while at work,she meets An Old friend, and is introduced to the ever-mysterious world of Wyrd keys
But can she do what she has to do , without letting her heart astray?

And when the truth will uncover…It will change everything
Especially the ending…woah! It was so not what I expected! Loved it! Hats off to Sarah!

The Characters developed too, I personally loved Dorian’s development and Chaol’s maturity, which made him one of the most important characters.Calaena was just the badass self she already is, but at parts-I could not help myself from sympathizing for her, her strong nature is commendable.
But those who love Chaol and Calaena….this book will be a feast for you!

This book is action packed with mysteries and romance.Just wait people! The book is worth waiting!

rating:5 Stars!

Warning:If you don’t love extreme suspense, magic,and strong hot headed female leads and want a perfect love story  *walk away*

BUT

If you adore magic,mystery,mayhem with beautiful romance but sad tragedies.You will love this one !

Throne Of Glass~ Sarah.JMass REVIEW!

                                This is the cover of Another Edition

                       Image

Review

Characters: Calaena Sarthodien,Chaol Westfall,Dorian Havilliard,Nehemia,Queen Elena.

Wow..just wow!

Celaena Sarthodien is an 18 year old assassin, The best Assassin of Adarlan

We all love heroes who save the day and usually also save the damsel-in-distress but, and a female strong lead? It something a lot better!

She was caught and taken captive in the Salt Mines of Endovier, where she suffered atrocities ordered by The king Of Adarlan, Calaena has almost not seen the sun for a year and is desperate for her freedom, When the opportunity is presented by Dorian Havilliard, The Crown Prince Of Adarlan, Calaena can’t miss the chance

Calaena has to fight for her freedom, for that ,she has become the prince’s champion and win the competition to serve the king as Royal Assassin for 4 years but along with her, other thieves, assassins and rouge warriors would fight to, too win the much coveted place.

At first, I thought that it will be some-what similar to The Hunger Games, but it was not, though it was as wonderful!

The story was a-w-e-s-o-m-e I loved LOVED the love triangle and Calaena’s sass,the way she treated others and the way she treated every situation presented to her and also, the way she deal the Arrogant-yet-hot Crown Prince and the Captain Of The Guards,Chaol Westfall.Also, there were no helpless female leads, who have to depend on the male lead to help her through *phew!*

“My name is Celaena Sardothien. But it makes no difference if my name’s Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I’d still beat you, no matter what you call me.”

Then, it is not only Assassins and competitions..yes! it has magic too! Although its banned in Adarlan, but its still there, along with wicked creatures of the otherworld ,Evil Kings, Ancient Queens with Agendas,scary creatures, mysterious symbols, this book has all!
Also:
I don’t like love triangles at all, but I love the triangle in Throne Of Glass. Its was great read and one should not miss this series!
 
Ratings:
5 stars!

WARNING:

If you don’t like traditional fantasy, Dystopian settings, Very strong heroin leads, magic, this book is not for you unfortunately

BUT

If you love fanstasy at its best, Hot heroes, Assassins,magic and adventure.read it Read it READ IT!

 

“You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”
