Fierce DawnFierce Dawn by Amber Scott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fierce Dawn was a great read. I became immersed in Sadie’s story from the moment that I opened the book. For some odd reason, I kept trying to envision what Elijah would like in real life and he looked nothing like the character on the cover. I think in my head, I gave him a life of his own as I read the story. The stormy relationship between him and Sadie was heady and full of pent-up passions that begged to be slaked at every turn of the page.

I also found myself wondering about what really happened between Holly and Crusoe and am hoping that you’ll consider writing their story some day. Your stories are phenomenal and I can’t wait to read Lyric’s story once it’s ready to hit the shelves.

One thing bothered me, though, was the way my Kindle kept showing the dialogue. For some reason, all the dialogue in the book was indented. Not sure if that was intended but I thought that I’d mention it. It sometimes made it hard for me to know when the next paragraph started since it would indent it also. Something to look into, perhaps? Read on »


Fated Fated by Carolyn McCray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first opened this book and started reading, I thought the story would center around Caesar and his reign. Man, was I proved wrong! I’m very glad that I was, too.

Seeing Brutus portrayed not only as just a man, full of flaws, capable of loving no matter the cost, but also as one acting on what he thought was right made him more sympathetic. Carolyn molded history in a way that left the reader glued to every page, eager to know more. We were given glimpses of Caesar’s weakness, Marc Anthony’s arrogance, as well as the power play between the Senate and the Virgin’s in the hopes of making Rome something more and better than what it was.

I became engrossed within Carolyn’s tale of intrigue and heartache, absolutely loving every moment that unfolded between Syra and Brutus. It also made me want to know more about the Fated. What their purpose was and what roles do they actually take. All in all, I enjoyed the book very much! Read on »
