Review: Locked Out Of Heaven by Danielle M Orsino

This is the story of how the Fae came into existence, angels being locked out of Heaven. The book includes various characters and their journey within the Court of Light and the Court of Darkness.

The idea of this book was interesting, and I enjoyed the explanations of how each type of Fae came into being; pixies, mermaids, etc. Much of the story centers around Queen Aurora and how she began leading the Fae.

The beginning of the book was tedious to read. There were many metaphors and similies used to describe the characters and set the scene. Less is often more, and I prefer to let my imagination fill in some of the blanks.

Overall, the book was well written. The language was mature but not difficult. Once more dialogue was used, the story progressed and blossomed into an excellent story. For those who enjoy fantasy and the Fae, this is a great read. I look forward to seeing what comes next in this series.

Review: The Last Keeper (The Warminster Series Book 1) by JV Hilliard

The book follows a few characters through their journeys that interconnect. A great evil with powerful magic wants to rip the realm apart, and only a few key characters know this is coming. The Last Keeper (The Warminster Series Book 1) by [J.V. Hilliard]

I enjoyed this book; it kept me wanting to know what would happen next. The vivid imagery allowed me to imagine I was there with the characters. At first, I thought I might be confused about the number of characters and their roles in the book – I was wrong. The story is so well laid out that you don’t confuse the characters or their location within the journey. The fight scenes were long enough for a good battle but not too daunting to get through.

I loved the characters – Fox and Addilyn were my favourites, closely followed by Ritter. They each had so much value to the story and well-thought-out personalities.

Overall, this was a great book; any fantasy lover would enjoy it. However, I did not like the end – not because it was terrible but because now I need the book!

Review: Queen of Magic: The Revolution by Hayden Knight

The story follows a witch, Salaire, who learns about her mother’s troubling deal to get what she wanted. In the end, it is Salaire who must follow through on the deal and lead the nonhumans to freedom. Queen of Magic: The Revolution by [Hayden Knight]

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and didn’t want to put it down. The dialogue kept the story going with enough description to show where we were in this magical world. From the onset of the story, it is evident that Salaire just wants to be left alone but by the end, she is thriving in her new role which shows great character growth. 

There was some indication of a potential love interest but it didn’t delve deeply into that part of the storyline. Thank goodness! Too many stories get sidetracked by the love interest and I lose interest in the story.

The characters were all very interesting and had their own personality. I even read their dialogues in the voices I thought they would be using. From the witch to the wolves to the dwarves and everyone in between it was interesting to see how they all came together.

Even though this is the first in the series the ending was still very satisfying. I am always very disappointed in a book when nothing is resolved, luckily the troubles that arose in this book were handled in this book. The epilogue was the cliffhanger, as it should be, showing where the next book will lead us.

This book is worth the read and I hope to review the next in the series when it comes out.
