3. Sybil Bartel

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

4. Annette Marie


Annette Marie is the author of the Amazon best-selling Steel & Stone series, which includes Goodreads Choice Award nominee Yield the Night, and fantasy trilogy Red Winter. Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it's not quite that bad) with her comparatively sensible husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat— Caesar. When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.

My Review:

This was still only an OK read even when compared to the only other novella I read in this series By Kim Loraine titled Forever Claimed. I liked how the story was written. It wasn't overly rushed and the story was interwoven enough to justify the fast bonding while giving the two main characters each a reasonable backstory.

Evangeline was an average character. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time for this story to unfold. She's a fighter but has a "dark" past that damaged her beyond belief (in her eyes).
Ivan was also just OK. He doesn't have enough dialogue in the story for me to get a feel of what his personality actually is aside from being infatuated with the heroine.

The ending was where this dropped the ball for me. It was rushed unlike the rest of the story. This also was way shorter than the other novella I read. So this author could have made the ending less rushed and chose not to. 

My Favorite Quotes:

"We will all die eventually. And none of us are guaranteed another day with any certainty."

"As someone who grew up on books about schools for witches and doors to magical lands, I'm 100% down for finding some real magic in a world that is far too bleak most of the time."

"It is our imperfections that make us truly beautiful."

Book Blitz: The Gauntlet By Rebecca Ethington


The Gauntlet
(Imdalind Academy #1)
By Rebecca Ethington

Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult

‘Running a revolution is easy when you have a little bit of illegal magic on your side.’ -Gemma

The only way you can receive magic is by running the masochistic Gauntlet that the royal family started seventy years ago as a way to control power. One bite from a Vily and you are filled with what many call ‘the power of the gods’ and sent to Imdalind Academy for training.

No bite, no magic, no Academy, and no place in society besides with the Drains that live in the old tunnels that dot what once was Europe.

Unless you are me, who after one bite from a loose Vily is left with a diseased fragment of magic like the Chosen magic carriers of my world. I may not be as strong as the bastards that lord over us, but that isn’t going to stop me from raising more than a little hell.

This year I am running the Gauntlet, and enrolling myself in their damn academy. There is no better way to take down the evil overlords of our world than from the inside.

Those royal bastards won’t know what hit them.

Now, if I can just get the king’s son Rowan out of my way…

Imdalind Academy is a stand alone spin-off to the Internationally Best Selling Imdalind Series.

Three series + Two Ultimate book boyfriends = The Best Magical Binge.

Excerpt

“All the glitters were never gold,” I drawled, my words slung together as the ache in my jaw grew.

“Yes, so you’ve said.” The same voice from before spoke with a bored drawl, his words slurred, but I had a feeling that was more from my brain having been electrocuted. Or the exhaustion from exploding a whole cave.

Shaking, I lifted my head, narrowing my eyes at the guy in the middle of the room. He stood like he thought himself to be much cooler than he really was; his arms were folded over a leather jacket, dreads pulled back into a weird low braid, blue eyes narrowed right at me.

“Thomas.” The word dripped with more than my blood. “The king's brother.”

“Yes, and what is your name?”

“I would rather die nameless, taking you down in the name of my people.” I had meant it as a threat, but my words were still slurred. He smiled at me, one guffaw of a laugh shaking his shoulders.

“I’m sure you would.” He pulled a chair around to face me, the metal grinding against the old tile floor with a sound that mixed painfully with the high-pitched shrieking that was still rattling my ears.

“And why are you the one guarding me? Was there no one stronger?” I asked, spitting another glob of blood, my mouth still filling with the bitter stuff. I narrowly missed his shoes that time and he shifted them beneath his chair.

“Strength is not an issue. I’m the only one who wouldn’t lose my cool and kill you on sight.” He didn’t even smile. I had a feeling that he was serious.

My Review:

This book started off slow but boy did things get good when they finally got going! I didn't know what to expect at the end and the twist the author threw took my breath away! 

Fallon proved to be very capable with and without Asher by her side. Considering this book picks up a year after the end of the first she's still grieving the deaths in the first book and has been working on her fighting skills to find Asher. She's a good and loyal friend. She also proved that she has a backbone that's emerging. With the twist the author threw in at the end I'm really excited to see where she goes from here.

Asher was so damn sweet in this novel! I also loved how the author switched up a few social norms in their relationship! He's protective, caring and wants to do right by her regardless of anything or anyone else.

You're probably getting tired of me mentioning this mysterious twist, but OMG it was so good and it'd be such a huge spoiler if I were to mention it! With that being said, I'd also like to understand how and why it happened in the first place though and how the community and Asher are going to deal with it going forward.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Everyone has an angle, love, you just have to make sure not to get hurt on their sharp edges."

"Strength isn't an appearance, Princess. It's a presence, a feeling kept in your core, waiting to be freed."

"[...] Not everything beautiful is intentionally made and not everything intentionally made is beautiful."
