Review: Luminaire

I was very excited to have the opportunity to read and review the second book in the Florence Waverly Series, “Luminaire” and I was blown away! The world that the author has created is rich, colorful, and exciting, and has been described so well that you feel as if you are underwater with the characters. I was so engrossed in this novel that I was able to read it in about four hours and was lost in the world of Niemela the entire time. 
This book starts with Florence trying to figure out the craziness that is her life underwater as the only human stuck in a world full of Mer folk. She is given dreams that force her into competing in a dangerous tournament where the only winners are the survivors. 
I have grown to love this series and cannot wait to see what unfolds for Florence, her friends, and the entire city of Niemela in the third book. Make sure to read the first book in this series, it’s one you don’t want to miss!

OPAL Trailer Reveal!

No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever. Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

Review: Lies that Bind (Liar Society #2)

The Liar Society, The Lies That Bind, is an exciting mystery that centers around two secret societies that rule a private high school. Kate has been trying to take down the Brotherhood and Sisterhood ever since their involvement led to the death of her best friend, Grace. She is trying to get revenge for what happened to Grace and make sure it never happens to anyone else. So when a member of the Sisterhood goes missing and horrible text messages with her picture are sent around school, she has no choice but to get involved to bring the kidnappers to justice. 

Pemberly Brown Academy is ruled by the societies that have been at war for years and are trying to bring each other down. Kate gets involved in some serious situations while trying to figure out who took one of the most popular girls in school. I loved how this book combines mystery with a very interesting plot about warring societies. You are enthralled from the first page until the very end. I loved how the clues lead you one way only to lead to a dead end. You were constantly guessing what happened and who was to blame only to have your mind changed 12 pages later. What I also enjoyed was the fact that you were able to read the second book in this series without having read the first. I haven’t had a chance to read the first book yet, but I was able to follow along and not be lost as to what the characters were talking about. There was enough back story to fill in the reader without over doing it on the recap of the previous story. I can’t wait to go back and read the first Liar Society book and I definitely am impatiently awaiting the release of the chapter of Kate’s story. 

Overall, I loved this story It’s been a while since I’ve read a mystery novel and this book helped me to remember why I was obsessed with them when I was younger. I think this is a great book for students in intermediate school and up and, if given a chance, I think that adults would really enjoy it as well.
