Fire War Book 1
 
“Man up,” he told himself. “Man up.” It was what his father always told him, and there was nothing more that he wanted than to be a man. So he took a deep breath, filling his nose with the scents of baseball and looked up to the sky, squinting a little.
 
It was a plane, not far from the blimp he noticed earlier; that was all. Nothing to be afraid of. A tiny sigh of relief escaped his lips as he saw the familiar shape outlined over his head, wings spread out against the sky.
 
It was the last thing he saw before the explosion ripped his small body apart with the force of a hundred suns. The quiet of thousands of lives extinguished in the blink of a second took over, disturbed only by falling rubble. The sun beat down again, hot and sticky, on what remained of Tom, his father, and all the others who had been unfortunate enough to be at Wrigley Field for the biggest game of the season."
 
---
Late in the 21st century, the United Continental States of America is running smoothly. 
 
Unemployment has been eradicated, terrorism is no more, and any internal dissent diminishes by the day. Most give credit to President Meyers, and many can no longer remember the last election, but it is a small price to pay to keep the country safe from the terrorist group Hariq Jihad.
 
Things aren’t as they seem, however, as Gunnery Sergeant Anthony Jackson is conscripted into the personal security detail of President Meyers. While the only thing he places above his country is his family, he begins to feel that not everyone is content with how things are. Even more, he begins to fear for his oldest daughter’s life as she begins to question the eroding personal freedoms and democratic rights. Considering that entire families have disappeared over the slightest infraction, one cannot be too careful.
 
Torn between liberty and safety, family and country, can Jackson balance his loyalties, or will he be lead to an explosive collision with the system he has dedicated his life to serving? In this explosive and highly acclaimed dystopian political thriller novel, the world you live in will never look the same again!
 
 
 
 
Fire War II: Treason
 
Anthony Jackson, military veteran, member of the Presidential security team, father, husband, patriot and spy. His daughter safely recovered from a government detention centre, Jackson's role as a spy for the anti government Apocolyte group is firmly cemented. All he needs to do is keep his head down, do his job, and get intel back to his rebel handler. But as Jackson's suspicions about President Meyers are proven true, and the tasks he's asked to handle become more and more immoral, his loyalties are becoming strained.
 
Where is the line between truth and lie? Between loyal citizen and blind follower? Between right and wrong? And who gets to draw that line? The Apocolytes are growing stronger, but Meyers is too, and only one of them can be the bad guy. But which? Jackson needs to choose sides, and he needs to do it fast. But in the end only the biggest tragedy of them all can force his hand.
 
His life will never be the same, his family will never survive, and his ideals can be shattered or overturned. Assassinations are all part of the job, he's always dealt in lies and secrets. But now there's something much more personal on the line: vengeance. Saving the world from terrorists is no big deal, knowing who the terrorists are is the real trick.
 
Fire War III: Uprising
 
Anthony Jackson. Patriot. Spy. Widower. Still reeling after the death of his wife, Jackson is numbly training antigovernment troops. Confident that his role in political affairs has dwindled to being a glorified shooting teacher, Jackson is slowly trying to piece his heart back together. Until the call comes. The rebels are far from done with Jackson, and this time the promised reward is big and juicy: the Presidency.
 
As the world slowly falls apart, men fight and men die, and Anthony Jackson cannot simply watch. Something has to change, and someone has to change things, and deep down, Jackson knows that he's the only man that can do the job. But as cities fall, the eternal question continues to burn in his mind: just who can he really trust?
 
In a world of lies and secrets, where even the ones you love can betray you, Jackson must find right and justice. Only then can he lead the country that he loves. If he survives that long.
 
My Review
Wow what an awesome end to a really interesting storyline.
I really loved the main character of Mr. Jackson, all that he has happened to him, since the first book, and he hasn't gone crazy, is just a testament to him. 
The president was even more cray, cray, in this book then the other two books if that's even possible. And Mr. Jackson and the President's relationship was very strange but very interesting. All that happened in this book with the deaths and what Jackson had to do to stop the President was very exciting and I thought was very fitting.
The book had a satisfying conclusion but also had away for the Author to visit these characters, again later down the road. And I would be excited if that were to ever happen. I also have to mention that I loved Jackson's two daughters and how different they were from one another.

Reading progress update: I've read 34%.

Heir of Fire - Sarah J. Maas

As I am reading the third book in the series, I am still liking the book, even though the second book is my favorite so far. I still am not liking Chaol that much, which is sad because I loved him in the first book. Dorian is still my favorite and I hate that so many people are lying to him. I don't care that there saying it's because there trying to protect him, when by lying to him it could make it worse for him.

Out of the new characters my favorites would have to be Sorscha, and Aedion. Rowan, I am not sure about yet, and Manon, so far is boring to me. So boring so far that I just skim through her parts of the story.

I really hope the second half of the book will be not as boring, even though there are some parts that are really good, especially with what Dorian just overhead about Celaena. Hopefully in the next couple of days I will be done with this book and hopefully be able to get read book 4, before taking a break for a little bit, and read some netgalley books, which I am so really freaking behind on. Back with you guys later.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.

Fire War 11: Treason - Michael T. Murray

This one was better but a quicker read. I really felt bad for Mr. Jackson and what he went through in this book. The President was even worse in this book then the first one. A lot of things happened in this book for the length of this one compared to the first one.

I really enjoyed the two children of Mr. Jackson, and what happened at the end of the last book, to one of them was just sad. But also what made Mr. Jackson finally open up his eyes on exactly who the President is. As well as what the President is trying to do to are country. So the ending was full of action and gives us the readers, some answers that we might have had. I would definitely recommend this series to my family and friends.

Pretty Creepy towards the end of the book!!!!!

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

I really loved this one a lot more than the first in the series, even though I did like the first one. I am still trying to decide what character is my favorite, if I choose right now that individual would have to be Dorian. I felt really bad for him, in regards for his feelings for Celaena. And also because Celaena and Chaol, leaving him out of a lot of important information. But the biggest reason is what he finds out about himself, and what would happen if his father the king finds out about it.

Chaol I am kind of not sure about, I really loved him in the first book, but the second half of this book his really started to bother me. 

Celaena I am not sure about either, her and Chaol's relationship is just all over the place in this book. One minute she loves him and the next minute she can't stands him and wants him died. I understand why she feels this way at first, but then she finds out something and she still acts the same way. I did know her secret before it was revealed and I still loved it because how it was revealed and by whom.

And the King I just can't stand, and what we find out in regards to what his trying to do, is so creepy and cray, cray!!!!!!!

I am now starting The Heir of Fire, and I really can't wait to find out, what's going to happen next. I really want to know what Dorian is going to do, and also what his father the king will do if he finds out about it.

My Review

I thought the book was pretty good. I have never read the first series with Michael and Claudia, so I will definitely have to later down the road. I thought the main character of Lucia was an okay heroine, but it took awhile for me to start to warm up to her. I really loved her brother Zach and there guardian Davin a lot. Davin was so freaking funny and kept me laughing, but he also had a very serious side as well. 

Lucia is only 17 years old I had to keep reminding myself that, because of some of the stupid stuff she does in the book. Plus she hasn't liked in the human world, or liked a boy, until she meets Eli, so she's also dealing with her hormones. 

Now Eli I am still not sure about, I really don't know if I like him or not. Or how I feel about him and Lucia as a couple. Sometimes his such a jerk to Lucia, and he seems like a know it all. 

I thought the book was very interesting especially the ending, which ends in a very big cliffhanger. So I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see however is going to turn out for everyone. Oh before I forget, which I would hate ,is if I don't talk about Lucia's best guy friend and another one of my favorite characters, which is Jack. I really love that he plays a big part in things that are going on, in regards to the plot. I just freaking love this guy, his just so awesome to me. I love that he is there for Lucia, and even though he likes Lucia as more than a friend, he knows that Eli is the one Lucia wants to be with. And he still wants to be in her life, if only in a best friend. 

Thanks to all parties involved that picked me to take part in the book tour for this book, after I requested for it.

The Hundredth Queen (The Hundredth Queen Series Book 1) - Emily R. King

So far I am not sure how I feel about the book. I just got to the palace or whatever you want to call it, of Rajah Tarek. Now that I am at this point, things will really start to really take off. I really not attracted to any of the characters, “Kalinda: is Rajah Tarek 100th wife, but she's already falling for someone else. Which brings me to this individual, whose name is Deven. He knows that things can get deadly if he gets involved with Kalinda but he still does things that could get them both killed. I can understand Kalinda somewhat, since she was never around men before. But Deven he just has no excuse at all.

I am going to give the book 3 to 4 more chapters, and if things don't improve, I will pick out something else to read. And then maybe get back into the book, in another month or two.

I do have book 2, as well as 3, which I received both by the way of Netgalley. So I am bound and determined to get through all three books, luckily 3 doesn't come out, I believe until sometime in February. 

Cute little book.

The Bone Thief - Alyson Noel

I really want to thank the author, publisher, and netgalley, for granting my request to read and review this book for my reading pleasure.

I thought the book was a cute little read, I only gave it three stars, just because it took me until almost the half way point to really get into it. I don't think it was the book or author's fault. I think it's really just because I am definitely not the attended target, or I should say age group for this book. 

I did like the main character of Grimsly, what a name unique name for the main hero of the story. I love that in a world of magic, that he was so normal, or maybe he really wasn't as normal as he thinks, or other people thought. The book started really picking up when Grimsly had to go to a world that had no magic. So he could find out why his world was losing their magic abilities. It was interesting in regards to why there world was losing their magic, and to see if Grimsly could save their world of magic.

I liked Grimsly's friends that had magic abilities which were, Ming, Ollie, and Penelope. And another friend Frankie whom he meets in the normal world. I thought she was a very interesting individual, and I loved that she had some spunk in her. But also knows when she should back down.

The bad guy and why he wanted  to hurt individuals with Magical abilities was interesting, and how he was able to go about doing this was very gross.

I thought the book ended just the way it should have for it's attendee age group, but for me personally, I would have liked more action. And a better wrap up for the ending of the book, but that's my own personal preference.

I personally wouldn't buy the book for myself but maybe for my nieces and nephew's that are in the targeted audience.

        Lust, one of the seven deadly sins, is sweeping the nation into its seductive web. In this dystopian society, Cali and Stefani have to comply by the Regime’s strict rule of arranged marriage. But Eminence, the world dictator, doesn’t play fair.
 
     Against all odds, they both decide to put their relationships through the ultimate test on The Temptation Trials—a reality TV show where every temptation of the flesh is set before them.
 
     As participants on the show, they soon learn that losing may cost them more than the men they love. Cali’s torn, unsure of what her future holds with Cade. Stefani worries whether her relationship with Tobias can be salvaged.

     The will of the weak is his for the taking. Can love save their souls?
 
My Review
What a fantastic book and things that happened in this book really surprised me. I have to say I was as torn as the girls were on which guy's to chose. Stef had Tobias and Dominique to chose from. And Cali had Zion and Cade to chose from, to me Cali had the hardest choice in the end. Although all the men had their good points as well as bad ones. 
What freaking shit went down in this book was just cray cray!!! I think I should warn you that like a lot of books, not everyone is going to make it out alive. I like an author that's not afraid to go there, even if it makes me sad when that's the case. How the book ended was weird, but that's because there is going to be a spin-off series, sometime in 2019, that will explain it.
I really did enjoy this book and I am so glad I was able to go on this adventure, thanks to being picked to take part in the book tour for it. It was one heck of an adventure that was for sure.

What a Scary Book About what could happen to the United States.

Fire War (Fire War Trilogy Book 1) - Michael T. Murray

I really had the creeps when reading the book and when could happen here in the United States, if we had a President like the one in this book. The only reason the book didn't get a 4 or 5 rating is because it took along time to get exciting. It's so scary because you know that something like this could really happen. People disappear in this book with just a snap of a finger and it's in the middle of the freaking night, I mean whole families. Some come back but not as how they left. I thought Jackson was really blinded by the President and he knew something was up but just kept ignoring the signs. Until something happens and he has no choice but taking off his blinders. I am starting to like his wife Courtney more, but I think my favorite character is there older daughter Maya. Very interesting girl but she needs to be a little more secretive. I really wonder what's going to happen to her, Jackson, and the rest of the family. I have the next two books but I am going to take breaks in between each one. The last book I am Involved in a book tour for which isn't due up until the 29 of this month, so I have still have sometime before then. Again so far a very scary book that could very well happen in our future.

Reading progress update: I've read 153 out of 340 pages.

Fire War (Fire War Trilogy Book 1) - Michael T. Murray

Wow I would hate to live in that future, it's crazy because you have to get permission for going to a different state. The book I am not sure if I like it or not, it's definitely different, and the pledge of allegiance is very strange. So far I am not sure if I like any of the characters at all. Jackson the main guy character is ok, but so far he isn't really blowing me away. And the President of the United States is really creepy and I bet he's tyrant ( sorry if it's spelled wrong) as well. And I am not sure how I feel about Jackson's wife Courtney, I am not really liking her so far, so hopefully that will change. 

I did feel bad for Jackson for something that he had to do, but he really had no choice in the matter.

Definitely a different type of book, then I usually read lately.

Haven - Mary Lindsey

First off I would like to thank Netgalley, Entangled Publishing, LLC, and they Author Mary Lindsey, for granting my request to read and review this very interesting book.

I really loved the character of Rain, from the very beginning, I loved that he could handle himself. I really also loved that it was only his point of view that we were getting. I am so use to reading books that are mostly from the females point of view. Or a mixture of both the female, and males point of views.

I really wasn't sure if I was going to like Freddie, or if you want to call her by her real name, Friederiike, at first but she started to grow on me, but not until  almost the half way point. And that's just because she wanted to at first protected her secret, and the big reason protect Rain. I figured out her secret way before Rain did. I loved that once Rain found out her secret, it didn't stop him from wanting to be with Freddie. Even when Freddie wanting to push him away. Another character I really loved was Rain's aunt Ruby, who took him in after his mom died. I really felt bad for Ruby when her backstory was revealed to us the readers. I figured something happened in her past, but I wasn't sure exactly what that was. 

The ending I thought was pretty action packed, and I was very happy on how it ended. I would definitely read more books by this Author. 

Really Great Start to the Series.

Rosemarked - Livia Blackburne

Boy this book was pretty good and it really kept my attention throughout the whole book. I loved both of the main characters, which were Zivah, and Dineas, both of them have a sad history. Zivah has a incurable disease called rosemarked, but she won't let that get her down. Dineas was captured and tortured, I believe he said for a year. And of course due to that he has his walls up. So Zivah is a healer and with this disease or actually with is more of a sickness, some people recover and is fine, while others get the rosemarked and that means they can get the sickness again. This guy named Arka, I am not going to tell you much about him but he is important in the book. Well anyways he was at Zivah's camp and got the sickness but wasn't rosemarked. Zivah was the one that saved his life, and he invited her to come to his hometown to learn more about medicine, etc. I know I am not explaining this very well, so I am sorry. But if you read this book you'll understand were I am going with this.

So Zivah and Dineas meet up and for reasons I am not going to mention, decide to go were Arka is from, but to do this Dineas can't go as he is now, for reasons again I am not going to mention. For these two totally different people to do this Zivah makes a type of potion that will make Dineas forget who he is at times. Zivah also makes another one that will make him remember at times when she gives it to him. Plus she makes one more that will give him his memory back permanently.

It's very interesting how different Dineas is without his memories, when his this way, his just so carefree, and really has feelings for Zivah. And you can tell that she has feelings for him as well, but since she has a death sentence on her, she doesn't want him to have these feelings. And of course she doesn't want to have them for him either.

So really no romance in at least this book, but who knows about the next book.

I know I am not doing a really great job reviewing this book but it's really an interesting book, and I finished it in a day so it really kept me interested in what was going to happen and how the book was going to end. Which was in a cliffhanger but yet satisfying place for right now. And I will definitely be reading the next one in this series, to see what is going to happen next. Because I really hope good things are going to happen to these two characters, who I hope windup with one another, if Zivah can get cured somehow.

I am so glad that I requested and was approved for this book, from Netgalley.

My Review
I enjoyed this book, I really love books with dragons in it. I also really thought the plot and some of the characters were pretty interesting. I loved Jade in this book a lot, and she kepted me wanting to read the book, to see what would happen to her and the individuals around her. I liked Axel as well, that is when his in the book, I really hope his in the next book more. And that we learn a lot more about him, and see Jade and his relationship more.
The ending was full of action and adventure, and was a cliffhanger but I thought it was an awesome way to end it. Until whenever the next one comes out, which I will definitely be wanting to read.
I was really glad that I asked to take part in the book tour for this book, and was picked to take part in it.

Good little introduction for the new series!!!!!

The Angel Knights (The Angel Knights Series) (Volume 1) - Regina Wamba, Mary Ting

I really thought it was a good introducing for the series. I never read the first series with Michael, and Claudia, which is called Crossroads. I do own the first book just haven't read it yet. There really isn't a whole lot to review about this one. Even though it does set up the new series, that looks like it's going to be interesting. In the new series it's going to be about the children of Claudia and Michael, as well as their Uncle Davin, whom is going to be there guardian.

In this book we find out that the new series is going to deal with trying to find out who are taken some missing teens and why. The main characters will be Uncle Davin, ( whom I really love, because his super funny), Zach, and who I will be the main character and that is Lucia. And from what I read about her already is that she's going to get herself in a lot of trouble, because she reacts before she thinks. I really believe that because she has a big heart and what's to help the people she loves. 

I already started to read the first one in the series but my review won't be up until my part of a book tour that I am taking part of. So you'll have to wait until the middle of the month to find out what I thought about the first book.

Really Not Sure What to Say About this Book.

The Library at Mount Char - Scott Hawkins

I am still trying to figure out what I just read, and what to say about it!!!!! This book was really messed up that's for sure. I really wasn't sure if it was a 3 or 4 star for me, so I gave it a 3 1/2  star rating. Steve, Carolyn, and Erwin were to me the most interesting characters in the book and I am not really sure if I liked or hated how the story ended for each of these individuals. David was really a distributed individual, and he really gave the creeps, and I am not really sure how I felt about his ending in the book. And the mystery of what happened with "father", I am delighted not sure how I felt about his story either.

I guess just like the book, these individual characters ended went along with that. The book was just so weird that at times I just didn't know if I was going to want and finish this book at all. But I just had to see what was going to happen to everyone, especially Erwin, Carolyn, and Steve. And to see how things were going to wind up. Favorite part has to be with Steve and the Lions. It was interesting to find out why Carolyn acted the way she did towards Steve. I really didn't have a favorite or really care for anyone in particular, but if I had to pick someone it would be a tie between Steve and Erwin.

I really loved the cover, and I am not sure if I would ever read the book again, but who knows.
