Shock of Fate

I enjoyed this book and will be reading the next book in the series. It did take me a little bit to really get hooked on the story though.

I enjoyed Van and her growth as a heroine through the story. This is a good YA fantasy full of action, magic, magical creatures and much more. I liked the addition of unique species, like the bunfy, as well as those many readers are familiar with such as trolls and goblins.

I did find the world the author created a little confusing at times and a little hard to follow, but by the end I had a much better grasp on the world the author created.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is not just another story about magic which is what I was expecting, but it quickly deviated from the typical Harry Potter story line. This story has magic, revenge, friendship, intrigue and so much more. I did not expect to get completely pulled into this story after reading the synopsis, but I was hooked! 

This story is about Crewe Chase and his journey to revenge his Uncle's death and become a great magician. There are many books about magic in the market today, however this book holds it's own through amazing characters, humor, and a great story line. 
(Rockcave is definitely my favorite animal sidekick)

I highly recommend this book and can't wait to read the next one!

Series: A Modern Greek Myth

This is not Percy Jackson's Story.......Azalee has been imprisoned by her own people since she was three because she is Blistered. Azalee has white hair, white  skin and red eyes due to a curse from the gods at the age of three. Joel believes his fate is to deliver Azalee to the island of Mykonos to join others like her. A third member joins their trip to reach Mykonos, the girl Azalee blaims for her curse, Niribelle.

This story is full of determination, sacrifice, romance and much more. I love the way the author blends Greek mythology and the modern era. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys a female heroine and Greek myths. I highly recommend it!

Next in the series!
