Top Ten Tuesday: Five Most Vivid Bookish Worlds

Hiya My Little Predators!!

Welcome back to:
A weekly feature created By The Broke And The Bookish
Currently featured on That Artsy Reader Girl

I recently updated the widget on the lower right side of this blog to feature the bookish blogs I follow on a regular basis. Feel free to show them some love! The only other bookish sites I use would be Goodreads and Booklikes. So I'll be switching up this weeks theme:

Five Most Vivid Bookish Worlds

* Book covers are linked to my review of the novel.

1. Mageri Series By Dannika Dark


Considering all this author's novels are set in the same world I will also add the Crossbreed Series and the Seven Series to this list! This author's storytelling abilities get better and better with every book she releases. Though I wasn't a big fan of the Mageri series (see my review for an explanation on that) I can recognize the beautifully intricate and cohesive universe she built with unique characters and continues to expand with every novel.

2. The Veil Series By Pippa DaCosta


This also includes the Chaos Rises trilogy because they're set in the same world. This author has such a way with words and deceiving the reader with unpredictable plot twist after plot twist. It's also a unique take on demons and how their world meshes with ours and the consequences that come along with that.

3. Red Winter Trilogy By Annette Marie


This author also has a beautiful way with words. She has the ability to present these complex tales while still keeping me entertained and looking forward to what happens next.

4. Steel & Stone Series By Annette Marie




See the last description because it also applies to this series!

5. Wildcats Series By Rachel Vincent


Even after years of ending her original shifter series, this author has me pulled into its spin-off. I love the world she built in the original series, but the way she expanded it in this spin-off series makes that much more intriguing. I want to see it evolve even more or, better yet, what happens if the people in charge refuse to go with the times.

What's the most vivid bookish setting you've encountered so far?
Let's discuss in the comments below!

Release Day Blitz: Blackout By Dannika Dark


Blackout
(Crossbreed #4)
By Dannika Dark

The fate of millions rests on Keystone when they embark on their most important assignment of all…

After what was supposed to be a simple job, Raven and Christian uncover a sinister plot against the higher authority, and the stakes are as high as the body count. The assassins are merciless, with anyone who stands in their way becoming collateral damage. Meanwhile, Raven is still struggling to make sense of her feelings for Christian following a memory wipe.

During a blackout, the city erupts into chaos. With Breed on the brink of war, Keystone has only twenty-four hours to complete a secret mission. Raven seeks help from the most unlikely of places, but at what cost?

It’s a race against time to save lives in this explosive installment of the Crossbreed series.

Keystone
(Crossbreed #1)
By Dannika Dark

Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law. Half Vampire, half Mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian Shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. The catch? Her new partner is Christian Poe—a smug, handsome Vampire whom she'd rather stake than go on a stakeout with.

They're hot on the trail of a human killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. One misstep during her probationary period could jeopardize Raven's chance at redemption, and her partner would love nothing more than to see her fail. Dark secrets, unexpected twists, and a blurred line between good and evil will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Will Raven find the courage to succeed, or will she give in to her dark nature?

My Review:

If I had bothered to read a few reviews of this book before I got it things would have ended better. So for that, I will admit fault. This book features a love triangle, which I haven't been a fan of for a few years now. It didn't help how small the universe the author created felt. The lore and the wolves self-inflicted seclusion from the rest of the town was a bit weird. 

Mina wasn't the brightest crayon in the box. There were times when I started questioning her common sense and self-preservation instincts. **Spoiler** The hardest pill to swallow was when she knew, for a fact, that a few of Alec's friends were up to no good and that it involved endangering werewolves and she still made it a point to be around them.**End Of Spoiler** Another thing I found weird was her overprotectiveness towards her sister. It would come up out of nowhere with no justification for it and would never lead to anything. Her inner monologue was, at times, too descriptive and detailed for me.

Alec was an average guy with an average life. I didn't feel the chemistry between him and Mina. The worst part of him were his friends, which seemed to only be around to make him look better in comparison. They felt very stereotypical and one dimensional.

Eli was mysterious and warmed up to me throughout the story. Though, I didn't understand why he insisted on giving alcohol to a minor. I also didn't see what he saw in Mina. There was never any real spark between them unless they coincidentally happened to be alone somewhere.

The ending felt off. There were a few major problems presented in this novel, but the only one that got solved was the obvious one that you can deduce from the cover and length of this still growing series alone. Overall, this felt like half a story and I'm not sure I'm invested enough to want to read the next book in this series.

The Audio Book:

The audio narration isn't great. It's slow and full of longer than needed pauses. This is the second book I read sped up because I couldn't stand the pauses. The narrator has maybe 2 voice intonations for women and 2 for men. There's not much distinction when there are more than 3 people having a conversation. Overall, the narrator didn't help with my apprehension of the story after I figured out that it featured a love triangle.
