American journalist Milly Bennett has covered murders in San Francisco, fires in Hawaii, and a civil war in China, but 1930s Moscow presents her greatest challenge yet. When her young Russian husband is suddenly arrested by the secret police, Milly tries to get him released. But his arrest reveals both painful secrets about her marriage and hard truths about the Soviet state she has been working to serve. Disillusioned and pulled toward the front lines of a captivating new conflict, Milly must find a way to do the right thing for her husband, her conscience, and her heart. Salt the Snow is a vivid and impeccably researched tale of a woman ahead of her time, searching for her true calling in life and love.

Praise

The vivid prose of Salt the Snow sets the reader in the middle of socioeconomic upheavals and political unrest with the best possible tour guide, wisecracking American journalist Milly Bennett. Callaghan excels at bringing little-known real-life women out of the darkness of historical obscurity and into the light of recognition. From the first scene, the reader is plunged into a world of suspense and intrigue, led by an unforgettable protagonist. Milly is not so much a character as a fully realized, complex human being: her brilliance and self-sufficiency are admirable, and her loneliness and feelings of unworthiness are heartbreaking. A fascinating novel! Clarissa Harwood, author of Impossible Saints and Bear No Malice

A vivid, well-researched story of a complex and ahead-of-her-time woman, an American journalist, who finds herself—head and heart—while living and working in an equally complex Russia.” —Jenni L. Walsh, author of Becoming Bonnie

“Salt the Snow is a vivid journey through the kaleidoscope of 1930s Europe with an irrepressible and all too human guide in Milly Bennett. Don’t miss this book and its unforgettable heroine! Linnea Hartsuyker, author of The Half-Drowned King and The Golden Wolf

“Honest, vivid, and bold in the face of historical truths, Salt the Snow is a captivating story of a woman whose vulnerability and hopeful idealism resonate even today. Jennifer Klepper, bestselling author of Unbroken Threads

Written with precision and depth Carrie Callaghan newest novel, Salt The Snow is a well developed portrait that takes off from the suspenseful first pages as American journalist Milly Bennett working and living in Moscow Russia.

Her heroic war journalism career has taken Her all over the world, as she has covered murders in San Francisco, fires in Hawaii, and a civil war in China, but in 1930s Moscow offers the most unprecedented challenge so far.

Through the authors narration, you are easily immersed within this engaging storyline. Milly will question her marriage when certain truth are brought to life, when her young Russian husband is suddenly arrested by the secret police. This incredible book, Callaghan captures historical suspense of Bennetts personal life, that defines her journalistic work. Milly will become disillusioned with the political upheaval of the Soviet state along with her marriage.

The authors captivating prose brings the exceptional bohemian lifestyle, of the riveting Mrs. Milly Bennett deftly within the pages, of Salt The Snow. Bennett’s idealism of Socioeconomics puts her front and center of political unrest, as the birth of Socialism explodes in Russia, and through out the world.

Callaghan superb writing brings the vivacious, headstrong and charismatic personality of Milly Bennett to life. I loved everything about this well fleshed out three-dimensional character. This brilliantly executed novel weaves perfectly back and forth, in easy to follow multiple time periods.

When an age when female journalists was extremely rare, Bennett’s feminist adventures unfolds, along with her hard-drinking, in your face journalism. This unforgettable woman and her controversial journalism was critical to social war movement happening through out the world.

She doesn’t take a backseat to men reporters, wanting to be front and center as war and political struggles begin to rise. She flings off the bands placed on woman during the 20’s and 30’s to conquer journalisms head on. Struggling to make a name for herself within an occupation in an era that was mostly dominated by men. Milly’s strength and fortitude is depicted in this intriguing nonstop read.

Callaghan, historical fiction is ultimately a story of that of courage and human kindness and sorrow. I was completely immersed within these meticulously researched pages, as the authors descriptive ability to bring a compelling and intriguing complex character to life.

While her journalism is not so much as her focal point as her emotional struggle in Russia, you are able to fully comprehend her depth as a character. When most women would have given up, Milly is persistent to right the wrong to have her husband released. Things come crashing to an end In a twist of gut wrenching series of events.

Milly’s independent nature and her journalist calling is notable when she finds herself taking more Correspondent work, with the AP and the Foreign Press Bureau. Risking everything for her writing, she places herself at the center of the escalating tension ripping Spain apart in their civil war.

Once again Carrie Callaghan, delivers a compelling, intriguing, and well-written read here with absolutely fantastic characters that totally captivated and fascinated me. An unforgettable heroin, this stunning book stayed with me, long after I closed it.

A riveting historical fiction, based on the life of one of the first female war correspondents, Milly Bennett

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

The Runaway Heir is the second book in the David series, An exceptional fictionalized retelling of a historical story about the ancient kingdom of Israel.

The rise of an enigmatic shepherd boy who rose from humble beginnings of sheep herder to the mighty warrior, and later the anointed..King David.

This second book delves into the brutal years where David’s life’s is constantly in peril. The paranoid, and extremely jealous, King Saul is determined to see David fail, and ultimately die. David had no choice but to leave his beloved, Michal behind. He has vowed that he would come back, but after so many years have passed, and after everything that has happened will he be able to keep his promise and return to her.

There’s something riveting about reading of ancient Israel, and it’s surrounding areas The lives of Michal and David come to life through the pages of books. This second book in its series is everything I hoped it would be. Richly detailed with captivating well developed characters, along with stunning atmospheric elements. A passionate fictional account that is adventurous as it highly original. Through the author keen precision narration the characters leap of the page.

A perfectly written book that will hold your complete attention from beginning to end. I loved every page of this book, and I recommend reading it to all my friends and family.

*Historical Notes *

David in the Hebrew scriptures, 1 Samuel 16, introduces readers to a young man who will capture not only the heart of the nation of Israel, but also the heart of God.

The Old Testament Prophet Samuel (c. 1200–1050 BCE)

Saul was chosen king both by the judge Samuel and by public acclamation. Saul was similar to the charismatic judges who preceded him in the role of governing; his chief contribution, however, was to defend Israel against its many enemies, especially the Philistines.

The king of the Kingdom of Israel and Judah. King Saul reign, is traditionally placed in the late 11th century BCE, this marked a transition from a tribal society to statehood

DreamLand Blog Tour

Dreamland by Nancy Bilyeau

#bookreview #gwendalyn’sbooks #thrdreamland @tudorscribe @endeavourquill #dreamland #blogtour

Hello Bookish Friends, and welcome to my stop on the Dreamland blog tour! A big thank you to Endeavour Quill for the invitation and for the gifted book!

Dreamland

Nancy Bilyeau.

Endeavour Quill

  • Paperback: 386 pages
  • Publisher: Endeavour Media (January 16, 2020)
  • Publishing Date:January 16, 2020

The year is 1911 when twenty-year-old heiress Peggy Batternberg is invited to spend the summer in America’s Playground.

But the invitation to Coney Island is unwelcome. Despite hailing from one of America’s richest families, Peggy would much rather spend the summer at the Moonrise Bookstore where she works voluntarily, than keeping up appearances with Brooklyn socialites and her snobbish, controlling family.

But soon it transpires that the hedonism of Coney Island affords Peggy more of the freedom she has been longing for. For one, she finds herself in love with a troubled pier-side artist of humble means, whom the Batternberg patriarchs would surely disapprove of.

Disapprove they may, but hidden behind their pomposity lurks a web of deceit, betrayal and deadly secrets. And as bodies begin to mount up amidst the sweltering clamour of Coney Island, it seems the powerful Batternbergs can get away with anything…even murder.s

It is up to Peggy to overcome the oppression of her family and clear the name of her vulnerable lover, before she or her beloved sister become the next victims of Dreamland.

Extravagant, intoxicating and thumping with suspense, bestselling Nancy Bilyeau’s magnificent Dreamland is a story of corruption, class and dangerous obsession.

#Review

Have you been to America’s Playground? Coney Island?

I’ve always wanted to visit.

Dreamland has Coney Island as a backdrop, and it’s 1911.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

Dreamland is a suspenseful historical fiction of obsession and desire.

This fascinating portrait of the end of the Gilded Age was a fabulous start to 2020. Set in New York 1911, the Battenberg family are one of the richest in America, with the Vanderbilts and Rockerfellas,

Peggy Battenberg is a young heiress who struggles against the bonds of societal restrictions placed on women of her class. Peggy, against her families wishes takes a job at the Moonrise Bookstore, and lives with her ex teacher. When her family intervenes, and she is told that she is required to take a summer vacation at the Oriental Hotel, a once-grand oceanfront resort on Coney Island. For the sake of her sister Lydia, who is engaged to the rich Henry Taul, Peggy succumbs to her family’s wishes.

Nancy Bilyeau’s writing catapults you into this vibrant outstanding thriller set in end of Gilded Age. Dreamland is a splendid, intoxicating book, with plenty of multi layered suspense.

Nancy Bilyeau delivers an extremely entertaining storyline, with captivating underlying tension. This gripping, perfectly paced and well-written read here that I absolutely loved how seamlessly and cleverly written this story was, and thought the author did a fabulous job with the delivery. I was totally invested all the way through to the satisfying end.

Dreamland and the rest of Coney Island is an intoxicating, hedonistic and full of life. Peggy gets to experience life from a completely different perspective than she has ever before. Mixing with artists, dancers, the inhabitants of Lilliput, along with food vendors. There is also a sinister side to this plot line, that adds an intriguing twist to the book that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Scandal and intrigue along with family drama makes for an extraordinary thought-provoking novel. A fabulous mystery/thriller that I was immediately drawn into and devoured quickly.

Athena’s Choice *•✿❀

Book Review

Name: Athena’s Choice

Author: Adam Boostrom

Genre: YA Sci-fi/ Dystopian Fiction

Pages:274

Publisher: Indie 2019

Athena Vosh lives just like any other teenager from the year 2099. She watches reality shows with her friends, eats well, and occasionally wonders to herself: what would life be like if men were still alive?

It has been almost 50 years since an experimental virus accidentally killed all the men on earth. However, a controversial project is currently underway to bring men back. There’s just one catch. The project has been sabotaged.

So begins the award-winning novel, Athena’s Choice. When the police of 2099 are tasked with finding the saboteur, they receive a mysterious command to investigate the otherwise innocuous Athena Vosh. After it becomes clear that the young girl might know more than she lets on, Athena is brought in to participate in the official investigation. Simultaneously, the girl begins to experience a series of cryptic dreams featuring a ruined library and an old book containing the saboteur’s true identity. As the police close in on their prize, Athena finds herself on a journey of her own. Her clue-filled dreams and incorruptible spirit bring her face-to-face with a pair of forgotten truths about happiness and gender. The world waits to see if men will return as Athena fights a separate battle, culminating in the choice that will define her and others’ lives forever.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. All included quotes have been taken from an ARC and may not match the finished publication.

Every act of learning is an act of destruction”

An intriguing storyline that unfolds meticulously with every captivating page you turn. Athena’s Choice by Adam Boostrom, is a YA Sci-fi/ Dystopian Fiction, is a futuristic world. Politically charged with cultural divisional conflict,

A gripping, captivating, thought-provoking, spot on dystopian fiction, that I was immediately drawn into and devoured quickly. The story was so captivating and entertaining and absolutely un-put-down-able!!!! 

The book pitches the year 2099 as a near utopia futuristic world, aside from a rising suicide rate. which could imply that most women are saints but for the evil to which men drive them. However the author has the Third Core say that

Some women will be more dangerous than the average Man.”

If you are an adept reader you will see that is not a male bashing book at all. This book touches on something on a larger scale.

The question really is what probability of danger should be enough to eradicate a whole group of people. It is so easy to believe that if there is a system that said a group of people are dangerous, get rid of them to create safety for others..

This book will leave you with many questions that really makes you think

As a reader what would you define as “evil”?

What kind of measurements would you use to determine these results?

A Stroke of Malice

(Lady Darby Mystery #8)

by Anna Lee Huber

@annaleehuber

Paperback, 384 pages

Expected publication: April 7th 2020 by Berkley

Lady Kiera Darby and her husband Sebastian Gage are looking forward to relaxing with new friends at an exciting yearly soiree, but they soon learn that murder never takes a holiday in the latest riveting installment in this national bestselling series.

Scotland 1832. After enjoying a delightful holiday with her family, Lady Kiera Darby is looking forward to finishing her new friend, the Duchess of Bowmont’s portrait, as well as attending the duchess’ annual Twelfth Night party. Though she normally avoids such fashionable events, Kiera trusts the attention will not be focused on her, but rather her notorious hostess and her family. But upon their arrival at the opulent Scottish estate, Kiera and her husband and fellow investigative partner, Sebastian Gage, swiftly deduce that all is not merry in the duke’s household. The family appears to be under a great strain, and someone seems determined to cause mayhem among the guests with a series of forged notes.

However, matters swiftly turn from irksome to downright deadly when the merrymakers stumble upon a decomposing body in the castle’s crypt. This corpse is certainly no laughing matter, especially when it is identified as the duchess’ son-in-law, the Earl of Helmsdale, who had purportedly traveled to Paris more than a month earlier. It is evident the man met with foul play, and Kiera and Gage step in to investigate, at the duchess’ insistence. Kiera and Gage must swiftly reexamine the facts, for a ruthless murderer walks among them and may well be a member of the duchess’ own family. Kiera soon discovers just how deep the killer is willing to dig to keep their secrets from ever seeing the light of day.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

A Stroke of Malice is the latest in the long running Lady Darby series and as such, I would recommend reading the previous books in the series to get the most enjoyment out of this one; the mystery works as a stand alone, but many of the characters have appeared in previous books, along with their backstory.

Following the events of the previous book, Kiera, Lady Darby, and her husband Sebastian Gage have agreed to attend a house party hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Bowmont for 12th Night. Kiera has been busy working on a painting of the Duchess and will continue to work on it while visiting their remote castle in Scotland.

Along with Kiera and Gage, Kiera’s sister Alana, brother-in-law, and brother are also in attendance. The duke and duchess are both to have scandalous reputations.

It’s even common knowledge that the duchess’s younger children are not the duke’s even though he has acknowledged them as such.

During a ball to celebrate the season, Lord Edward takes some of the guests, including Kiera and Gage, on a ghost tour of the castle. While visiting catacombs under the castle where a friar is said to haunt, the group is stunned to come across a recently deceased man. Unable to confirm the deceased’s identity, due to the deterioration of the body, but suspecting it could be someone closely related to the family, Kiera and Gage agree to on the investigation.

The investigation is far from easy when it quickly becomes obvious that the duchess and her family have many secrets that they seeming willing to do anything to keep, but does that include murder?Kiera is six months pregnant, headstrong and determined to not only confirm the identity of the victim but to also figure out who did it.

This captivating novel is lively with its twists and turns, that makes this engaging mystery one will keep you be guessing all the way through to the final reveal.I enjoy character development of both Gage and Kiera as their relationship continued to evolve into a solid marriage.

There are some interesting plot developments, and intriguing sub characters that I’m excited to see playout in the authors future books. This delightful series is one that keeps getting better with the addition of new installments

Have a wonderful day!

Lady Georgina Kirkpatrick defied her family, jilted her fiancé, and married the man she loved. But when her husband died at Waterloo, she was delivered right back into her father’s power . . .

Victory is sweet—but England’s triumph was Georgie’s rout. Now that she’s widowed, the loathsome marriage her father first arranged has simply been renegotiated. With neither money nor rights, and nowhere to flee, all she can do is cherish her last weeks of freedom. . . . Until a band of ruffians overtake her carriage and kidnap her. When she escapes in seaside Brighton and encounters her brother’s rather wild friend, Lord St. Just—whom she suspects aspires to be a pirate—she’s prepared to entertain more of his adventurous suggestions than usual . . .

St. Just knows his mind and his duty, and he loves a challenge. Helping a fair lady make her farewells to hoodlums suits his talents well. Within the hour he has Georgie, her lady’s maid—and her little dog too—sailing for his castle in Cornwall. Meanwhile, the lady’s entire family, her kidnappers, and her scheming intended are in pursuit. But as he and the indomitable Georgie grow closer, he begins to suspect that together they will prove a match for them all . . .

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

Much Ado About a Widow by Jenna Jaxon is the fourth installment book in the Widow’s Club series. A lovely historical romance series, that can be read as a stand alone, or enjoyed in order within the series..

Our heroine, Lady Georgina Kirkpatrick, A sassy redhead with stunning green eyes, has recently become a widow. After losing her beloved husband, Issac she has evidently agreed to the marriage her father has arranged for her in order to get back into his good graces after he he disowned her for running off to marry for love.

Georgina and her maid are kidnapped by villains, who are working with her diabolical betrothed as they journey to her fathers estate. In a series of events they escape and seeking help, she runs into her brother’s good friend Robin Kerr, Marquess of St. Just. This lively book takes off from here with twist escapes that made for a non stop read. A lively tale, that is a captivating romantic comedy adventure, that shows the reader just how vulnerable a woman was in this particular time in history. The romance and character development spot on, along with engaging dialogue keeps the reader invested all the way through.

Jenna Jaxon’s Much Ado About a Widow, is full of kidnappings, hooligans, escapes, is a perfect regency romance. I am hoping that the author continues this creative book series, as there is still an unmarried widow.

Read an Excerpt

A key grated in the lock. Lulu growled and stalked toward it, the fur on her back rising straight up.

“Not yet, Lulu.” Georgie gathered the leash. “Don’t bite him quite yet.”

Her dog stopped advancing on the door; however, the growling did not abate. Better be safe. She gathered Lulu into her arms. “I’ll give you the signal.”

The cabin door swung open, revealing Lord St. Just, an impossibly broad grin on his face. “Wait until I tell you what my men and I just did.”

“You don’t have to tell me, my lord. I already know.” Georgie glared at him and held Lulu tighter. The little animal was shaking, and Georgie was sure if she loosened her grip Lulu would launch herself at the unwary marquess. Serve him right too.

“You do?” He frowned and cocked his head, which made him look like a puzzled puppy. Lulu looked just like that whenever she was unhappy. But what did he have to be unhappy about? He was the one who had kidnapped her.

“You have set sail, my lord, with me and my maid aboard against our wills. Many sensible people call that kidnapping.” She’d always known this man was a pirate. In fact, she’d told her brother so. She handed Lulu to Clara before the dog could leap out of her arms and tear at his lordship’s throat. If anyone was going to attack the marquess, it would be Georgie herself. Plant him a facer and see how he liked being set upon.

“Oh.” The impossible man was all smiles again. “Yes, we had to put out or miss the evening tide.” His grin had returned, showing many straight, white teeth. “But we did manage to steal your trunks, Lady Georgina. If you will consider yourself abducted again, at least rejoice in the fact that you will have clean linen throughout the ordeal.”

About the Author:

Jenna Jaxon is a multi-published author of historical and contemporary romance. She has been reading and writing historical romance since she was a teenager. A romantic herself, she has always loved a dark side to the genre, a twist, suspense, a surprise. She tries to incorporate all of these elements into her own stories. She lives in Virginia with her family and a small menagerie of pets. When not reading or writing, she indulges her passion for the theatre, working with local theatres as a director. She often feels she is directing her characters on their own private stage.

She has equated her writing to an addiction to chocolate because once she starts she just can’t stop.

A spymistress, a rebel and a courtier.

A mesmerizing epic brilliant historical fiction, set during the turbulent world of 17th century England. As the English Civil War rages on, and loyalties divide families over Commonwealth or Crown.

Written in their Stars, is the third and final instalment in Elizabeth St. John, Lydiard Trilogy. A riveting true story of three cousins, Luce Hutchinson, Frances Apsley, and Nan Wilmont.

This rich literary masterpiece opens with execution and the aftermath that follows the death of Charles I.

Navigating through the political strife that threatens to tear their family apart. The three Women, Lucy Hutchinson, wife of Regicide Colonel John Hutchinson; Frances Apsley, wife of Lucy’s brother Sir Allen Apsley; and Nan Wilmot, Countess of Rochester, Lucy and Allen’s cousin, were best friends and fierce opponents. Lucy supported the execution of the king and the establishment of the commonwealth, while Frances and Nan were fervent Royalists and worked to bring King Charles II home from exile in Paris.

Working in the backdrop, spying in the shadows to bring down the Cromwell’s regime. Nan Wilmot, and Frances Apsley, work together in plotting the return the king’s exiled son to England’s throne. Which ultimately is aimed at the restoration of the English Monarchy.

Written in their Stars by Elizabeth St. John, is a richly textured, mesmerizing, novel. The strength of this novel handsdown is the author’s fabulous characterizations. Elizabeth St. John, definitely shines when it comes to how interesting and fleshed out her well developed characters are. 

An immensely captivating story that is full of history and the most compelling and illustrious characters. The harrowing storyline is a fascinating one and it is written is such a way that will bring the history to life, I can see why this talented author is loved by so many, her way at weaving fact and fiction with her wonderful words is a masterpiece of writing.

The third book in The Lydiard Chronicles series, Written in their Stars, is a true story based on surviving memoirs, letters and court documents from Elizabeth St.John’s family history.

About the Author

Elizabeth St.John spends her time between California, England, and the past. An award-winning author, historian and genealogist, she has tracked down family papers and residences from Nottingham Castle, Lydiard Park, to the Tower of London. Although the family sold a few castles and country homes along the way (it’s hard to keep a good castle going these days), Elizabeth’s family still occupy them – in the form of portraits, memoirs, and gardens that carry their imprint. And the occasional ghost. But that’s a different story…

Book Tour The Viking Captive

Today I’m really excited to be taking part in the Book Tour of, The Viking’s Captive
by Ingrid Hahn, which is being hosted by HFBT!

The Viking’s Captive by Ingrid Hahn

Publication Date: December 9, 2019
Entangled Publishing, LLC
ebook; 371 pages
Genre: Historical Romance

Thorvald Longsword can’t believe all he has to do is kidnap the daughter of his jarls enemy to get his land back. Easy. But when he finally snatches the princess up and tosses her over his shoulder, the beautiful spitfire makes him question his determination to get his land back at any cost.

Alodie gladly agrees to impersonate the princess so the bloodthirsty Northmen will take her instead. While Alodie might be ready to die for her people, she wasn’t prepared for how her pulse races for the maddeningly noble captor whom she just as soon hate.

But what happens when Thorvald finds out she’s not who she says she is…

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

The Viking’s Captive by Ingrid Hahn is the story of Alodie and Thorvald.

When Alodie agrees to protect her Mistress, by taking the persona of the Princess, when the “Demon” Vikings arrive on their shore. Brave and Fiesty, Alodie will have to keep her wits about her, taking things into to her own hands, she is willing to sacrifice her life for her people.

Thorvald Longsword is a somewhat honorable Norsemen, who is indebted to the Jarl. The Jarl holds a weighty secret over Thorvald, and the only way he can retrieve his lands back he must win his favor from the Jarl. Thorvald is tasked with invading and kidnapping a princess of a small kingdom.

I really enjoyed how the romance unfolded, along with secrets they are unwilling to share. Facing difficulties, Alodie is not prepared for how she is to falling for the not so typical Norseman.

A riveting fast paced drama with secrets and tragedy, and a swoon worthy Viking. Ingrid Hahn, provides an entertaining read to readers with heart pounding romance.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

Estranged The Changeling King by Ethan M. Aldridge is the next installment to Edmund and Cinder’s life changed when they went back to their own worlds.

A perfect sequel to the first graphic novel in the series, The Changeling King is a beautifully rich fantasy world, that the very talented Ethan Aldridge has created.

Ethan M. Aldridge, gorgeous artwork and vibrant characters, the tale comes to life with creative impressive imagery.

The story picks up right away where the first left off, plunging the reader head first into fast action and suspense. King Cinder is still trying to adjust to his royal obligations as king of the Fae in the World Below. All the while keeping up is obligations, he starts to take note that the magic is getting weaker and Cinder must find a way to keep magic from disappearing all together.

Ed is trying to navigate the World Above. He’s the epitome of the perfect son and brother. However, his parents and sister Alexis are worried about him since he’s struggling to find his purpose in the human world. In a series of events, a royal letter from Cinder requesting the help of Alexis and Ed.

I found The Changeling King to be so much more emotionally charged than Estranged The internal struggle is more defined, with both boys trying to find answers that they both are desperately seek. Ed battles with his purpose and why the Fae Queen chose him. Cinder struggles with being abandoned and is frightened of losing the one family he’s ever known to Ed. I had several heart string tugging moments in this sequel.

The character development and world building is incredible, and gives the reader even greater insight. The the side characters three dimensional, and should be noted

Estranged,The Changeling King. A captivating coming of age book. Within a graphic novel , that focus on self discovery along with the importance of friends and family.

Stellar artwork along great diversity with LGBTQ representation. I definitely recommend it to young adult readers from grade 6+ and up .

Praise for The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen Series

Hemingway again displays his notable ability to recreate time and place, moving on from the heady days of Jane Austen’s early love to a marriage beset by difficulties and a country at war. Hemingway … vividly and authentically portrays the times. … his is a lively, compelling read, sobering but moving finale to Hemingway’s successful trilogy. BlueInk Review

Immensely satisfying … Marriage is lively, compelling, and fun. … [Her] relationship with her husband Ashton still sparkles. Marriage is a lovely ode to their connection. … Hemingway has combined Austen’s humanity with her fiction and created a Jane that lives and breathes on the page. Audiences will want her to be real… It offers a wonderful, imagined alternate life for the well-loved author. Claire Foster, Foreword Review

Enjoyable … an imaginative, well-researched series. Kirkus Reviews

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own

“Life is risk my love. To end risk is to end life.”

The Stunning Finale to Jane Austen’s Saga

In the moving conclusion The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen, VOL. III, Hemingway continues his riveting storyline of Austen’s activities from 1807 to 1809

The novel picks up four months after Jane has successfully delivered a baby boy named, George. Hemingway’s Jane is a realistic woman dealing with the challenges of motherhood and running a household. When a series of personal tragedies threatened the heart and marriage of Mrs. Austen. Jane and her husband struggle with the extent of their sons illness. This turmoil will put a wedge between the married couple. This was also a time in England where there was political unrest and the Napoleonic war is at their door step.

A dramatic last installment to popular series by Collins Hemingway with stunning atmospheric details that transports the reader to nineteenth century England. This is by far was my favorite of the three books in Hemingway’s in imagined alternate life of Mrs Jane Austen. Wonderfully depicted in regency period details with three dimensional characters, along with the authors strong narration carries you all the way through to the end.

When things dramatically change for Jane and her husband, Hemingway’s immersive characters become more fleshed out developed. The writing is fluid, and eloquent, with engaging dialogue, and notable sub-characters. An intriguing plot involving a series of challenges and misfortunes makes for an emotionally charged page turner of a book.

“In marriage, every decision required the consent of just one partner, and that partner would never be her. Not because the husband was smarter or better informed but because he was not the wife.”

About the Author

Collins’ passion for literature, history, and science enable him to create complete, sharply drawn fictional characters fully engaged in their complex and often dangerous worlds. His fiction is shaped by the language of the heart and an abiding respect for courage in the face of adversity.

As a nonfiction book author, Collins has investigated topics as diverse as corporate culture and ethics; the Internet and mobile technology; the ins and outs of the retail trade; and the cognitive potential of the brain. Best known for the #1 best-selling book on business and technology, Business @ the Speed of Thought, which he co-authored with Bill Gates, he tackles challenging topics with clarity and insight, writing for the intelligent but nontechnical reader.

He has a bachelor’s degree in English literature from the University of Arkansas, Phi Beta Kappa; a master’s degree in English literature from the University of Oregon; and numerous technical certifications in computer technology.

Helen soon discovers the Morgan Library is a place like no other, with its secret staircases, magical manuscripts, and mysterious murals. But that nothing compared to a person who Helen alone can see: a young woman standing on Madison Avenue, looking as if she were keeping watch. In learning the woman true link to the Morgan, Helen must face the pain of her own past. And as she struggles to discover the truth behind these appearances, she finds herself with a second chance at happiness for herself on Christmas Eve if she has the courage.

EXCERPT:

He stepped forward, and my heart skipped a beat. His eyes studied mine for a moment, before he gently lifted a hand to trace my cheek. I could barely breathe. “I will never leave you,” he said simply. The look in his eyes was so certain.

He leaned closer, and I reached up to wrap my hand around his, where he held my cheek. I let my eyes fall closed as his lips brushed mine.

I melted against him.

The first kiss was soft— the next firm, and in two short steps I was backed against the wooden door to his room. I leaned into him as our mouths moved in unison— his hand lifted from my cheek to intertwine with mine, and his other hand moved to cup my waist. Without thinking, I gripped the neck of his tunic and the cord began to unravel.

When we finally stopped, I was breathing heavily, feeling dazed and light. I could see his chest partially, with the cord half undone, and felt myself flushing red.

He traced the outline of my face again with his hand. “I will do whatever it takes to get you what is rightfully yours, Adrina,” he promised. “You will never lose me— not to anyone.”

It took me a moment to break the spell that had come over us.

“About that . . .” I breathed, still staring at him. “I don’t know if this is the right thing to be doing.”

He slowly stepped back from me.

“What do you mean?” he asked, as began to retie the cord of his tunic.

“I mean . . . it is the king and queen who did wrong by me. Not Annaliese. She doesn’t deserve to die because of their actions.”

“Annaliese will become Queen,” Julian replied firmly, “Unless we take her out.”

Book Review DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY AT PEMBERLEY

After a brush with death, Fitzwilliam Darcy, a wealthy, happily married man and father of a 2-year-old son, is visited by an angel of death named Graham who tells Darcy he saved his life and insists that Darcy serve as his guide for his sojourn among mortals. Darcy is forced to agree or face a terrible alternative. Graham alarms Darcy by seeming to take a fancy to his wife, Elizabeth, who remains under the impression that Graham is a visiting friend from University. Complicating matters during Graham’s stay is a surprise visit from Darcy’s Aunt Lady Catherine, who arrives with a beautiful lady companion. Lady Catherine never approved of Elizabeth and has a despicable plan in mind. A surprise party that Darcy had planned for Elizabeth’s birthday brings other loved ones to the estate. Darcy eventually deduces that Graham had only delayed his death, and believes his life might be taken at any time. Before the happy ending, which surprises even Graham himself, Graham touches the lives of several of the Darcy’s guests, lending a hand and solving a potential disaster or two.

I received a complimentary copy of DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY AT PEMBERLEY from the author. Thank you Kelly Miller for the chance to read and provide an honest review

A captivating Pride and Prejudice sequel, with a unique paranormal twist to the theme. This was a nonstop read for me, I was completely immersed into this delightful novel.

The story takes off with Darcy and Elizabeth have been blissfully married for three years and have a small son, Bennet. Their happiness would have come to an abrupt end had it not been for an apparent chance encounter with the enigmatic Mr Graham who saves Darcy from certain death.

Graham suddenly appears in Darcy’s office. His a dashing gentleman who claims to be the Angel of Death. Graham explains the purpose of his visit. His ability to read the final thoughts of those about to perish allowed him to sense Darcy’s happiness the previous day. Highly curious as to why Mr Darcy is content and pleasantly happy.

Graham strikes a deal with Darcy in exchange for delaying his death. Although Darcy knows that Graham is not to be trusted, he has no choice but to agree.

This is where the book really takes off, Death wants a holiday among the living, and when he meets Fitzwilliam Darcy captivating and vibrant wife Elizabeth Darcy,

The storyline unfolds with wonder twist and intriguing notable sub characters.

Beautifully developed, the story line had the perfect blend of Regency Period, thrown together with the perfect amount of paranormal magic makes for an incredible read.

The author was inspired by the classic fantasy movies Death Takes a Holiday, The Bishop’s Wife, and Heaven Can Wait.

. My book, Death Takes a Holiday at Pemberley, was published in June from Meryton Press, a small publisher in Washington State. It is a Pride & Prejudice continuation, a Regency Era romance with a fantasy element: an angel of death interferes in the lives of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy a few years after their marriage. It is a stand-alone book, and readers need not have read Pride & Prejudice to enjoy it.

Many thanks to The Fantastic Flying Book Club for having me on this blog tour and Flux for sending me a copy to review!

“Never again, Lena promised, would she describe her home as cold. This world took the word and gave it a new meaning. She had no doubt that she really was in Helheim-the air felt like invisible ice. Solid and brutal.”

“A distant raven’s cry tore through the valley, shattering the fragile silence between them.” ⁣

“The next morning felt as strained and tense as those seconds before an arrow was loosened, or an axe hurled toward its target. “ ⁣

No God would have anticipated you, a human girl, would dare summon Ella or track between worlds, it’s preposterous. Utterly insane. Which is why I am so fond of you, and why are you are my most treasured asset it now.

Elizabeth Tammi’s captivating second book, The Weight of a Soul, is a dark and unique fascinating on Norse mythology. Tammi has created an enjoyable Viking Ya historical fiction blended with vibrant magical realism. This wonderful book grabs your attention with descriptive suspense and foreboding.

Magdalena, {Lena}, is the oldest daughter of Fredrik, the chief of the village and head of his clan. Lena is in training to be a healer and will take over as Chieftain along with Who ever she marries when her father dies. She is a devoted sister and their sisterly bond is the strength within Elizabeth Tammi novel, The Weight of a Soul.

Fressa. who is an accomplished swordsman, her ability has surpassed most of the young clansmen in the village of Midgard . Along with Fressa’s notable warrior abilities, she has also fallen in love with Amal, and the have planned to marry.

Amal, is a boy who came to live in the village from a foreign land, taken in and raised by a healer within the village. The three Lena, Fressa, and Amal have become a tight knit trio, having grown up together within their Viking village.

When Lena, and Fressa father, Chief Fredrik returns home from raiding, he brings back a sword, gifting it to his younger daughter Fressa.

This sets off a tragic series of events when Fressa is found dead under mysterious circumstances.

Lena driven to the point desperation and grief Lena with the help of Amal to call upon Hela, the goddess of death. Seeking to bring her younger sister home, Lena strikes a dark bargain – this being a soul for a soul. A soul that must be a weighty one and equal to Fressa’s a fighter who is as brave and gifted as she. Lena’s blinding love for her sister, takes her down a hollow and crooked path that their is no turning back, when Magdalena actions become chilling, villainess unsettling.

Throughout the storyline, Lena traverses two of the nine realms in Norse mythology, which is completely unheard of and is an intriguing twist in this engaging YA Fantasy. The nine realms are connected by a tree known as Yggdrasil.

Tammi’s vivid spellbinding world building and the books exploration of the blurred lines of innocence and corruption is strategic and notable. The Weight of a Soul, is steeped in mythos, a wonderful narrative mythical themed Coming of age book, that asks the moral question.

At what lengths would you go for a loved one?

I immensely enjoyed reading about the gods and goddesses, and are told the legends of Ragnarök complete world destruction, along with, Fimbulwinter, which is infinite winter.

If you enjoy and appreciate Norse mythology than you will be enthralled by the authors ability to create and blend her own creative narration within this stunning book.

On a side note Tammi says that this story has been an immense privilege and responsibility due to her own heritage. As most of her family is Scandinavian, she felt very fortunate to have learned about the history and mythology behind where her family originated.
