Review of Promise of Mercy by Author Kurt D. Springs

25136518 (1)

Promise of Mercy

 

Deirdre watched as Marisa turned and looked at her. She was shocked when she saw the child in her enemy’s arms. The Gothowan woman turned away to shield the child. Deirdre saw the child’s face. The child was looking right at her. Her expression was more curious than frightened. Deirdre knew she could take the fugitive without touching the child. She reoriented her aim, and her finger began to tighten.

It is twenty-five years after the events of Price of Vengeance. Deirdre and her sisters have returned to their home planet of Etrusci after completing their training with the Finnian Shock Forces. Their homecoming plans are disrupted when their mother, High Priestess Celinia, and other leaders of the clergy are taken hostage, and their father, Colonel Liam O’Connor, disappears. In their desperate search for their father, they discover that the Rebellion is secretly building weapons that could end civilization as they know it.

Meanwhile, Liam has been befriended by a Rebel war criminal, a woman Deirdre has sworn to kill. Will Deirdre cast herself into the role of judge, jury, and executioner, or will she discover the promise of mercy?

REVIEW 

 

Review: Promise of Mercy

Rating: 5 Stars

 

This is the second book that I have read by Author Kurt D. Springs. The first being Price of Vengeance. In both books there is a lesson to be learned – That vengeance isn’t the answer but compassion is. Time can change so much so quickly even for the worst of us; Marisa is the example in this book.

Liam is also still a very strong character but is learning and with the help of his four children. His three daughters are the walk of him. Their adventure takes off when the temple is under siege with their mother inside and their father is sent through a portal to an unknown place. It’s a story of family, love and forgiveness.

At the start the bad guys are the original founders but we soon meet Kergan a man who has no regard for live. He is the enemy that the finnian must fight. Deirdre Liam’s daughter took centre stage for me with her blatant disregard for orders, she was stubborn, her only focus was saving her parents and we watched her time and time again display this with some serious defiance. She has a temper. 🙂

We meet new creatures in my head I picture bigfoot 🙂 they help Liam and his family against the enemy and are a welcome addition.

A lot of things throughout the story stood out for me. One being the use of Irish – it was fantastic to see as I am Irish myself. Translations of the Irish words where right beside it in English, so no flicking to the back of the book or e-copy to see what it means. Which for me normally pulls me from the story so this was really great.

 

The second thing I loved was Gayla and her bond with Liam especially with the paranormal activity in the prison. It was a bit scary but I loved it.

Also I love the author’s ability to take a bad guy or women that you really don’t like, and soon without realizing it you feel compassion for them. Marisa the prime example here.

The technology, science, new species  and descriptive lands   in this book felt to me that an enormous amount of research went into this book.

I have a feeling that we are not done yet, with the ending (Which I will not say) but I really look forward to reading about Liam and his four children?  Again.. Oh, and  ted I can’t leave him out he is like a brother to Aidan.

 

If you love sci-fi action packet with a lot of gadgets then grab a copy of Promise of mercy and Price of Vengeance you won’t be disappointed.

Monday’s Review of Obsidian By Author Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

12578077

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens. 

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Review of Obsidian

Rating: 5 stars

 

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

Before I even start with my review I just have to say that I loved this book it was just awesome, I laughed so much through it, that my jaws where sore.

 

Katy is a nerd, no other way to word it, she loves books her blog and they seem to be her life, until her mother ships her West Virginia. Her father had died from cancer and her mother felt they needed to start over.

 

Katy is a serious blusher and when she meets the neighbours next door, the fun starts. Daemon is drop dead gorgeous with a fit body and a sculptured face, but his mouth is another story. Katy lands on his door step unable to speak as she takes in his half naked body, but Daemon soon makes her close it by saying something sarcastic and sharp and so their relationship begins with this tone. It’s so funny I just loved the sarcasm and insults that seemed to flow so naturally between these two and then we meet Dee, Daemon’s sister, she a slice of sunshine.

 

Starting off senior year in a new school is hard enough but having Daemon in her Trig class just makes it so much harder. You can see from the start that something is very off about Dee and Daemon and we soon discover that they are aliens from another planet and they are entirely made from light. It’s actually really cool and something I myself found to be new and refreshing.

 

As the story rolls on so those danger and Katy soon finds herself been drawn into another world that she didn’t even know existed. The romance in this story was what did it for me, and I nearly cried when it ended wanted book two like now.

 

Overall a great read and one that I would highly recommend.

 

 

 

 

Book Tour ~ Spotlight and Review for The Price of Vengeance by Author Kurt D. Springs

 

Price of Vengeance

 

Price of Vengeance

 

“Liam! What have you done?” Marcus demanded. “You know our teachings on revenge.”

Suddenly, irrationally angry, Liam straightened. “How can you defend him after what he did? To you, to Mom, to my birth parents, to everyone we cared about?”

With a howl of despair and emotional agony, Liam dashed forward, through the shade of his father, blindly running into the sewers.

What is the Price of Vengeance? One could understand why Liam is angry. Orphaned at the age of two by a group of giant carnivorous insects called the chitin, he was adopted by High Councilor Marcus and his wife, Lidia, and raised with their older son, Randolf, in New Olympia, the last remaining city on the planet Etrusci.

As an adult, Liam becomes a soldier. After being cut off from the city, he finds that there is an alien intelligence behind the chitin. To defeat it, he must discover who he is and how to use his powers. When Liam discovers that a traitor responsible for his birth parents’ deaths has also murdered his beloved foster parents, he might find that the price he has to pay in his quest for vengeance will prove to be an even more unbeatable foe.

Review of Price of Vengeance

Rating: 4 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

Sci-fi wouldn’t be a genre that I would normally read, but I’m glad I read Price of Vengeance. It was a very well written book, with enough interesting characters, as well as a Bear-lizard who can communicate telepathically, to keep everything interesting.  I loved the dreamscape where Liam meets Jarek and finds out about who he is, and all about his family. The plot was very well written with enough betrayals, twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.

 

For me the title says it all. What price would you pay for Vengeance? It’s something that can destroy a man’s soul, and it almost destroys Liam’s.

 

Liam is an orphan, his family slaughtered by the Chitan – (bug like creatures) and he’s taken in by Marcus and his wife, he also inherits a big brother Randolf. We watch as Liam dedicates his life to being a solider never taking part in sociable affairs.

 

We learn a lot about Liam when the chitan attack and we see him in full throttle.  He can fight, his abilities are amazing and well written especially when he jumps out of time _ (slows time down) the story continues to follow Liam his brother Randlolf and Azure a being of pure evil, who wants Liam on his side. The struggle between right and wrong, and hatred and love is saturated in this story, and love is stronger no matter what, that it can cause a person to let the hatred and anger go. This is very well shown with Celina’s and Liam’s story.

 

Overall a very well written book. One I feel all Sci-fi and fantasy/paranormal readers will enjoy.

Review of Gemini of Emreiana and Interview with Kristen DaRay

Review of Gemini of Emreiana By Kristen DaRay

(1st review for April)

Rating 4 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

I received this book for an honest review. This story is told through the eyes of Carson a young 18 year old. She lives in a small town in Alice and lives a normal life. Until she finds out she’s from another planet called Emreiana, where she will take the throne and bond with a fellow Gemini in marriage.

The story is based on Earth letting us see Carson discover who she really is, and understanding that she must let go of all she loves including her boyfriend Klye, But Aaronmon a protector of the royal family is there to ease her transition.

Even though the story is based on earth, it’s still very intriguing we learn all about the new planet Emreiana, they have their own language and are very advanced in technology. Also the people of Emreiana are born with certain gifts that fall’s into four categories. The world of Emreiana sounds so beautiful with its three moons that dictate’s the time of year.

The story is very well written and I can’t wait to read the second book, which will be based in Emreiana and we can start to see Carson in her true settings.

Interview with Author Kristen DaRay

Question: What have you published recently?

Recently I have published Gemini of Emreiana. It is the first in the Gemini series. It’s about making tough choices when it means you have to give up people you love.

Blurb: My entire life has been a lie: My parents didn’t die in a car accident. They’re not even dead. I’m not American. I’m not even human. I have strange powers, and I’m the heir to the throne of the planet Emreiana. 

If I take the crown, I have to leave behind everything I have known here on Earth. I would have to say goodbye to my friends and leave behind Kyle, the boy I’ve loved since I was five. If I don’t, then I risk the Bremoir finding me here on Earth and destroying everything I love.

 

Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer?

I have been writing since the 6th grade. I won a contest for my county in writing and realized then that I had a talent. However, I didn’t start to write fiction till I was 15. It was then that I realized that I wanted to be a writer. I started writing a vampire novel. I never finished it because of the huge vampire craze that took over the population but I still have most of the chapters for people to read.  After that, there was a project I started with a friend. Due to various reasons, it was never finished either. It was a year after that, that I had an idea that would be the beginning of the Gemini series.  I didn’t start writing it until 2011 and finished it that summer. All the major edits came in 2012 when I decided that I would self publish rather than search for an agent.

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?

Because I’m still in college my typical day is pretty busy- especially if you add the fact that I have a PT job.  Basically, I go to classes in the morning. I usually sometimes have an hour or two in between class and work. That is my writing time. I write about 1k words during that time or as much as I can before I have to leave.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created? Tell us about them.

I love all of my characters, good and bad, so this makes it difficult.  I really enjoyed Aunt Trish.  She had a wiry personality that was really fun!

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them? Does doing this help you or bother you?

Maybe grammatically, but never about their story- unless it was just really terribly written.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?

It depends on the work I am writing. I have a playlist built for each book. J

Question: What do you eat while writing?

I don’t usually eat while I am writing. I like to stay healthy so I know if I eat while I am being a couch potato and writing, I’m bound to gain a few unwanted pounds…. Plus I never had the desire to eat while I am writing.

 

Five for Fun:

What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?  RootBeer

What is your favourite cartoon character?  Gir from Invader Zim

What is your favourite movie of all time? Alice SyFy version

What do you like to do for fun or just to relax? I like to watch Kdrama’s. So much fun!!!
