Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition on In the Books, featuring Source of the River by Lana Axe.
I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
As a huge fan of epic fantasy, I really enjoyed the easy flowing style the author uses to weave her stories. The good versus evil is a clear cut divide, but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story. If anything, it helped me settle in and enjoy the trials of the characters even more.
Each of the main characters were likable in their own way. As is typical with most youths, River and his friends only want to help the mountain dwarves that suffer from a magical plague and, with the benefits of River’s elemental magic, travel up the river to the dwarf colony. There they meet a dwarf girl named Kaiya who is powerful in magic, but her ability leads to her being an outcast among her people.
My favorite was an evil elf that wishes to capture the soul of an elemental. He was your typical bad guy and that made him all the more fun. What can I say? I love bad guys. Lol
This was another fun read from Lana Axe and I can’t wait to read her next novel.
Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Their Forbidden Desire (The Incubi Series Book 1) by Angela Fattig.
I was given a copy of this novel on exchange for an honest review.
First, I think it’s fair to say I’m not a huge paranormal romance type of guy. I prefer my monsters a little more bloodthirsty, but I was surprised at the twist the author took with this book.
Nate Sanders is a three hundred year old Incubi that was sent to Earth to help produce enough Incubi offspring to eventually take over the world. After falling in love with Melody Andrews, he decides it’s time to take a stand and change things when the Elders sent an assassin to kill Melody. With the help of others like him, he sets in motion a revolution among his people.
The only thing I noticed was it felt rushed, but when considering it’s the first part in a much larger planned series that resolved itself in my mind. It was a fun read that kept me interested. I’m fascinated with the backstory of the Incubi given their legend and look forward to reading the rest of the series when it comes out.
