"An action-packed, blood-soaked, futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate. For fans of Moira Young’s Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.

Meadow Woodson, a fifteen-year-old girl who has been trained by her father to fight, to kill, and to survive in any situation, lives with her family on a houseboat in Florida. The state is controlled by The Murder Complex, an organization that tracks the population with precision.

The plot starts to thicken when Meadow meets Zephyr James, who is—although he doesn’t know it—one of the MC’s programmed assassins. Is their meeting a coincidence? Destiny? Or part of a terrifying strategy? And will Zephyr keep Meadow from discovering the haunting truth about her family?"

Action-packed, blood-soaked, and chilling, this is a dark and compelling debut novel by Lindsay Cummings.

My Review:
I read alot about The Murder Complex and was a bit hesitant to pick it up. However when I did start reading it, I became glued to the story. I wanted to finish but not finish it. I definitely got some Hunger Games vibes from the story.  I loved every second I was reading this!! I am going to be picking up the sequel and conclusion as soon as it arrives from Barnes and Noble.

5/5 stars
Happy Reading, Ashley

Update and Just Random Thoughts

So I logged onto my blog. And found some comments. Thank you all for that. I accidentally deleted one. I'm sorry Jenn. I didn't mean it. After all these years of running my blog you think I'd know how to undelete a comment. But nope....  warms my heart when I see comments. It really does. I still feel like a newbie.

2018 has been an interesting year already. I just hope the remainder will be better. My birthday is coming up. Ehhh.... I am always two ways about my birthday. I'm either happy about it or sad. This year I'm both. I lost my Nana two days after my 13th birthday back in 2000. So I basically started hating it ever since. I just want to hide until the day is over.

Late night ramblings from me.....

The Black Mage:Last Stand by Rachel E. Carter

The Black Mage:Last Stand by Rachel E. Carter
Released: February 7th 2017
Publisher: Rachel E. Carter
Series: The Black Mage, Book Four
Page Amount: 452, kindle edition
Source: Kindle Unlimited

"He’s the Black Mage and she’s the traitor to the Crown.

Ryiah’s world was shattered the night she discovered King Blayne’s nefarious plans. Now, she has to betray the one she loves most in order to save the realm from war. Torn between love and duty, Ry finds herself on a perilous mission to help the rebels and convince the kingdom of Pythus not to honor its pact with the corrupt king of Jerar—all the while deceiving the most powerful mage in the realm, the very man sworn to protect the Crown and hunt the rebels at all costs: her husband.

She’s one step ahead, but sooner or later the curtain will fall.

Sooner or later, she’ll have to fight."

Witness the epic conclusion of The Black Mage series, and see just how far one girl will go to save her kingdom and the boy she loves—even when that boy has become the enemy.

My Review:
This final conclusion to the Black Mage series was one heck of a roller coaster. I wasn't sure what Rachel up her sleeves for Darren and Ryiah and the gang. I didn't expect all that takes place. Oh my heart is sad to have finished this series. No more from this world and its characters.

5/5 stars
Happy Reading, Ashley

"Welcome to the Candidacy. Where dreams go to die.

Twenty-year-old Ryiah is a black mage of Combat, but she’s not the Black Mage. Yet. She’s had her eyes on the legendary robe for as long as she can remember, and in just one year, she will have a chance at her country’s prestigious—and only—tourney for war mages... Too bad she is going up against a certain prince—the one person she has yet to beat.

The Candidacy finally arrives and a winner is robed, but something dark is lurking in her kingdom’s midst. Rival nations are closing in, and it’s time to make an alliance. 

Unfortunately for Ryiah, that’s only the beginning. The worst enemy resides in the palace."

My Review:
We pick up where we left Darren and Ryiah in Apprentice. This was a crazy but fun ride. I loved the scene between Priscilla and Ryiah. I'm looking forward to reading the conclusion to the series The Last Stand. There is alot of things taken place in book 3. Definitely a great continuation of the series. 

5/5 stars
