Lantern - Blog Tour and Book Review

Summary:

Five days before Halloween, all sixteen-year-old Tori has on her mind is vacationing with her family and scoring lots of candy. Her grandmother’s estate, with its Gothic spires and trails that lead out to the woods, holds an unexpected secret: a lantern that lights up for Tori and nobody else. Certain that it’s a ghost or a prank, she investigates further and discovers a mysterious life that shines in the darkness.

Review:

This book was such a fun, quick read with such an interesting premise. Tori and her family are visiting her grandmother’s massive plantation home during the week leading up to Halloween. One evening, Tori decides to go out for a walk around the property, and discovers a lantern that seems to respond to her speaking to it by flickering between bright and dim. When Tori brings the lantern up to her parents, they want her to drop the subject and stop going out to see the lantern at night. But Tori’s grandmother helps her to sneak out of the house to unravel the mystery of the lantern.

Without giving away any spoilers, this book told a beautiful story about how being whole as a person isn’t just about having a body with all of its’ parts, but that being whole is also about loving and being loved by others. For being such a quick read, this book had quite a lot to say.

I give this book 4/5 stars. Lantern is free, and you can order it from Amazon’s Kindle store by clicking on the image below:

Moorigad - Book Review

Plot:

When Kyra, the Moorigad dragon-shifter, unwittingly finds herself at Mystic’s Carnival, a supernatural world between realms, she believes her runaway days are finished. Amidst the carnies and never-ending magic, she finds a home of the heart—friends and belonging among a gathering of paranormal beings. However, living an uncomplicated life was never one of Kyra’s strengths.

She’s falling for her all-too-secretive best friend, Sebastian. And as she delves deeper into his mysteries, her goodwill sabotages their future and her very existence.

Review:

I was initially so intrigued by the concept of the magical carnival that this book revolves around. It was something that seemed so interesting and unique and different from anything else I’ve read before. Mystic’s Carnival has a mind of its own, and the way that Kyra entered the carnival, by accidentally falling through a mural painting of a carnival, was the coolest thing.

One of my favorite things about reading this was how it wasn’t predictable like so many books are these days; the plot was full of twists and turns. The way that the characters were written kept me wanting more as I worked my way through the book. This was different than any other fantasy book I have read, which was refreshing and new.

I had a bit of trouble keeping up with this book and everything that was happening. I don’t know if it was just because I was being immersed into an entirely new fantasy world or if it was the way it was written, but I constantly found myself wondering what had just happened. That being said, this sometimes happens when I read fantasy books, so it isn’t out of the normal for me.

I give this collection of books 3/5 stars. You can order Moorigad: The Complete Age of the Hybrid series by clicking on the image below:

The Cave - Blog Tour and Book Review

Plot:

When a nuclear war devastates the U.S., a four-day excursion quickly turns into a fight for survival in The Cave. Six Stanford students journey into one of the deepest and longest caves in North America. A day into their journey, a nuclear war begins from within the U.S. Unable to return to the surface, and unsure what they will find when they do, the Cave will test the strength and survival of each person differently – transforming six individuals into a team, and ultimately…a family.

Review:

The suspense in this book had me hooked from the beginning, and kept me reading all the way through the end. Not only did I find myself wanting to know what was going to happen to the characters, but I needed to know. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew how the book ended.

A group of six college students plans an expedition into the Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota. They come from all different backgrounds and each have unique majors in college that don’t necessarily have anything to do with their desires to go on this trip. The trip is only set to last for four days, but after a nuclear war breaks out above ground after the first day of their trip, the group forced to stay underground to avoid exposure to nuclear radiation.

The group then has to figure out a way to survive for a month with very limited supplies, and have to constantly hike throughout the caves to find supply boxes and natural streams to survive off of while they wait out their time. And with more hiking comes a lot of accidents and injuries that only slow the group down more and more. By the time that they need to head to the surface, they are in need of some help from outside help, if there is any.

The only thing that bothered me with this book was the way that it ended in a sort of cliffhanger, and only because I wanted to keep on reading about the fate of the students once they reach the surface. That being said, I am most definitely going to have to get my hands on the next book because I must know how this story goes.
