When the fate of the world rests on your shoulders, how do you choose between what you ought to do and the only thing you really want?

Leonie finally knows who she is. But now she needs to decide who she is going to be. Her choice will affect not just her family, not just those she knows, but tens, hundreds of thousands, millions of people that she doesn’t. And every path that’s open to her will put Perry under the pressures that caused his breakdown before. How can she do what she must and still protect Perry?

Perry desperately wants to make things easier for Leonie. Somehow he has to find the strength to face the things that all but destroyed him in the past. But every way he turns, some aspect of his past lies waiting to pounce – even during his happiest moments. And he can never forget that Leonie’s life is in danger from someone, somewhere.

Gabriel has managed to negotiate peace, at least in theory. Now he must put that into practice and reunite Leonie with the family she never knew she had. Then disaster strikes right in the middle of his own sanctuary. Can he still protect those he loves, or has he been harbouring a villain the whole time?

My Thoughts

I’m really curious about this book. I have not had much luck with other books that Amazon classifies as Christian fiction but I am hopeful that streak will NOT continue. I’ve just started this book, so keep your fingers crossed.

Book Blurb

Rune Jenkins has a long-standing infatuation for anything from the supernatural world, and she’s trying to hide it. If she doesn’t, her reckless twin brother Ryker storms in fits of rage, and she starts feeling like her own sanity is slipping. But the closer she gets to Grey Malteer – an old friend who waves his fascination with fantasy like a flag – the harder it becomes to stifle her own interest. When supernatural creatures from another world suddenly come hunting for the three college students, they are forced to see the hidden truth as fantasy twists with reality. With help from a mysterious savior, Rune and Grey escape, but Ryker does not. They must follow Ryker’s abductors into an alternate dimension, Eon, where they discover their true identities. They are Venators, descendants of genetically enhanced humans designed long ago to protect the inhabitants of Eon from themselves, and to keep them far away from Earth. After generations of separation, the ruling Council of Eon has decided to bring about the return of the Venators for their own benefit. In this new world of fae, vampires, werewolves, and wizards, power is abundant and always in flux. Rune’s brother is missing, and she and Grey are being set up as pawns in a very dangerous game. Rune, Ryker and Grey must now find their way through and out of Eon, before it consumes them.

My Thoughts

This was a pretty original YA fantasy plot. It had bits and pieces of what’s already out there but it had many more elements that I have not read before. By the end, it was a five-star read. It is a great look at the journey toward self-discovery that is perfect for a YA audience.

Book Blurb

Summer has come to Atlantic City but the boardwalk is empty of tourists, the casino lights have dimmed, and two Jane Does are laid out in the marshland behind the Sunset Motel, just west of town. Only one person even knows they’re there. Meanwhile, Clara, a young boardwalk psychic, struggles to attract clients for the tarot readings that pay her rent. When she begins to experience very real and disturbing visions, she suspects they could be related to the recent cases of women gone missing in town. When Clara meets Lily, an ex-Soho art gallery girl who is working at a desolate casino spa and reeling from a personal tragedy, she thinks Lily may be able to help her. But Lily has her own demons to face. If they can put the pieces together in time, they may save another lost girl—so long as their efforts don’t attract perilous attention first. Can they break the ill-fated cycle, or will they join the other victims?

My Thoughts

I think this book sounds exciting! It almost got lost in the shuffle of TBR books but comes out 3/3 and I’m looking forward to reading it!

    1. I think the publisher must have sent me a widget for Please See Us because it was not on my schedule but there it sat on my NetGalley shelf. Total uh oh! moment. I love urban fantasy, so much more accessible than epic fantasy though I love epic fantasy too ❤️

      2. It came from an imprint of Simon & Schuster (Gallery Books). And it was based on my review of The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. I mostly get sent mystery novels. Almost always. ❤️

  1. Please See Us sounds intriguing. I’ll be curious about your thoughts on Cloth of Grace. I normally limit my Christian Fiction reading to books set during Old Testament times, but I have read a few others I’ve enjoyed. Other times, like you, I have not had much luck.
