I just realized the other day that October is my blogoversary – 2 years and still going strong. And, you would not believe how much this site has grown over the last year. It is incomprehensible to me. Thank you all for the incredible support you continue to show me. It means so much ❤️🤗🥰

Currently Reading

I participated in a blog tour for book 1 of this series and am part of book 3’s blog tour but somehow I missed out on book 2 (below), so I doing a quick read of book 2 to get caught up with the story but I doubt I will review it. I’ll just focus on a review for book 3. I loved Book 1 so I am excited to find out what happens next.

When their friend Grey Malteer was abducted from their college dorm and taken to the alternate world of Eon, Rune Jenkins and her twin brother Ryker ventured into the dark unknown to save him. Now they are trapped in a world of fae, vampires, werewolves, and wizards. And after discovering the truth of their ancestry, the three are a world away from anything resembling their mundane lives of the past.

While Ryker is still held captive by the eerily beautiful Zio and her goblins, Grey fall into the clutches of Feena, the Fae queen. As she drain his soul bit by bit to feed her underground garden, Grey has no hope of escaping on his own. It is up to Rune to save him.

But the Council has denied Rune permission to embark on a rescue mission until she harnesses her Venator gifts. As Rune discovers that promises in Eon are forged with life-or-death consequences, she realizes that she must act quickly, or else be swallowed—and Grey along with her—by the dangers of Eon.

Just Finished

I just finished this book and there is a lot that I absolutely loved about it – world-building is phenomenal as in The Chronicles of Elantra, and the character development is deeply complex – are you sensing a ”BUT” coming? But, the pace was too slow for my limited focusing abilities. That was the one aspect I struggled with but when everything is phenomenal, I can’t fault a book for a slower pace – it was just hard for me to stay focused on it the whole time I was reading it.

About This Book

  • Genre: Fantasy
  • Print Length: 434 pages. (it is actually longer than this based on reading time)
  • Publisher: MIRA
  • Publication Date: October 13, 2020

Multiple races carefully navigate the City of Elantra under the Dragon Emperor’s wing. His Imperial Wolves are executioners, the smallest group to serve in the Halls of Law. The populace calls them assassins.

Every wolf candidate must consent to a full examination by the Tha’alani, one of the most feared and distrusted races in Elantra for their ability to read minds. Most candidates don’t finish their job interviews.

Severn Handred, the newest potential recruit, is determined to face and pass this final test—even if by doing so he’s exposing secrets he has never shared.

When an interrogation uncovers the connections to a two-decade-old series of murders of the Tha’alani, the Wolves are commanded to hunt. Severn’s first job will be joining the chase. From the High Halls to the Tha’alani quarter, from the Oracles to the Emperor, secrets are uncovered, tensions are raised and justice just might be done…if Severn can survive.

Reading Next

The path will be forged in sweat and blood. Rune, Grey, the shape-shifter Beltran, and willful vampire, Verida, set out to rescue their friend and mentor, Tate, from the gladiator games. But first they must navigate the perils of Eon and its warring factions. Each of this band of four carries with them a secret that threatens to tear their group apart from within. Rune now bears the mark of the promise she made to save Grey’s life—a nixie bubble lodged in her arm that could call her away to do their bidding or spell her death. Even as their loyalty to their cause and to one another faces its greatest test, Rune’s twin brother Ryker is forging an alliance with their mortal enemy, the powerful sorceress Zio, who has plans of her own for the Venators and Eon. Hearts will be bared, secrets unveiled, and relationships made and destroyed in this stunning new installment of the Venators series.

    1. I’m loving it so far. Trying the audio because I thought it would make reading quickly easier. Not sure how I like it an audio, though 🤷‍♀️

  1. Happy blogoversary, Tessa!
    It looks like you’ve got some great fantasy reads lined up.
    I just started reading “The Lab,” the final book in D.L. Cross’s Astral Conspiracy Series. I’m finding it hard to set it aside to do things like going to sleep at night, LOL.

    1. I think The Lab looks so good. I saw it on Staci’s post when it came out. Looks like an amazing series. ❤️

  2. I don’t read a lot of fantasy, apart from A song of Ice and Fire – I’m half way through the second volume and loving it. I take note of all the fantasy recommended – I’d like to begin another series early next year.

    1. Thank you so much! I have fun with Instagram photos ☺️ You definitely should check out Venators. Everyone on the blog tour absolutely adored 1 and 2, so I imagine 3 will be wonderful also. Happy reading!


  3. You and I are having the same problems with books lately – same for me with focusing. Those covers are really eye-catching.
