Hey, hey Ramblers!! Welcome to my first ARC read of the year and daaaang was it one that I LOVED and completely DEVOURED!! I was more than a little sad to see this book come to an end.
There was so much to love about this book and I can’t express how much I loved falling back into the Shadowguard world. I remember when the first one came out in 2019? I was lucky enough to get my hands on the ARC of that one too and I just adored how Samantha wrote. Since then, I’ve fallen into each one of her worlds and loved them all. Her writing style and ability to weave a story has always had a way of catching my attention and holding it. And this new series is no different. I can’t tell you how fast I fell in love with the main character, Andie. She’s one you just can’t help but connect with and love. Then add in the other characters and don’t forget about the plot, it’s just the icing on the cake.
Heyoh Ramblers! I hope you are all doing well and keeping out of mischief and staying sane? I have to admit my brain has been haywire and all over the place. Definitely keeping out of mischief, but I dunno about the sane part 😆. Life has been crazy. My body has decided it doesn’t want to play by any rules and is just here there and everywhere, with what it throws at me of late. So much fun aye. 😆
But let’s forget a bit about life for a little while yeah. And this is a great book to do that with. When I say this book dives right in…I mean. Right. In. So if you ask me…
Holy flippin’ Fae wine. That. That was the most adrenaline-pumping, emotionally-stirring, edge of your seat worthy read. And I’m sad to see some of my fav character’s story come to a close…but seriously exceptional read. It was all tied up so perfectly (well outside of the fact that it ended lol…but we can’t have everything, now can we?) And since nothing can really meet the energy of the kid from Incredibles, this gif feels hella appropriate for this book.
I absolutely loved so much about this book and the only reason I’m setting it at this score, is because I just know it’s going to get so much better. So it feels wrong, marking it as a 5…because then, in my opinion, it doesn’t show the story’s growth to its fullest. Hence I’m gonna stick with this rating…but my words! You guys have to read this book! If you love Shifter and bonded mates you’ll gobble this one up like you’ve been deprived of your favourite chocolate cake. And you’ll eat it all up without a worry for your safety because nothing else will matter.
Holy damn dragon breaths! This is the easiest 5 star score I could give. If you fell hard for Everly’s Soul Bitten Wolf Shifter series, you are going to become obsessed with this latest upcoming release (Coming out on the 18th February!). All I can say is be sure to have this on the list! It’s the biggest MUST ever!
Well I’ll be damned. I didn’t think Heather could outdo herself like this but daaaang she did. Whilst my emotions are still on the rollercoaster ride that is this story. This is an easy 5 stars to give. A story that can make you feel so strongly and has you blaming onions for your stingy eyes deserves all the stars. Wouldn’t you agree?
So whilst cutting my non existing onions (shh don’t tell nobody that)…I needed a minute to just be like how could you do me like this Heather?! And whilst I’m still all aboard that train I love the fact that she can mess with my emotions so easily. So whilst I’m holding a teensy bit of a grudge against her currently… I love her and the amazing journey this book is. It really is a book about finding your people, your home and that with them you can get through anything. Which warmed my heart so much. Our dear Amersyn started off with nobody and as the series progresses you see her let people in and that’s such a beautiful thing to watch bloom. People accepting you for who you are and making you the best version of yourself. Beautiful. No, no I’m not gonna cry.
This book was just incredible. The characters (oh the characters!) I adored them. So relatable and loveable. The story development and growth was something I truly loved experiencing. It took me a little to get fully invested in this series world but once Heather got her claws into me, I was a complete goner. I truly think this could be some of Heather’s best works yet. I know right?! You’d think that was impossible. But with every story this girl releases, she herself shows so much growth. And I’m here for it all. 😍
With everything coming to a head, the final battle is nigh and players are bringing their all. So be prepared for anything.…anything. It’s time for Amersyn and her friends to take down Viktor and his nest once and for all. With plot twists and turns, expect the unexpected folks. And even then you’ll probably still get shocker punched (I spelt it wrong for a reason lol).
This book I would definitely recommend reading. So do yourself a favour and add it to the list. You guys can thank me later 😉. This book releases on the 20th January but if you want to read now the paperback just went live. (Find here —> Vampire Vow)
Thank you so much Heather for providing me with the ARC of this incredible mind-blowing journey. As always it’s a pleasure being apart of your team, even when you are a little bit evil. 😜 I can’t wait for others to read this awesome story you created.
Anywho, I’m gonna leave it at that and am going to find myself some chocolate to eat now lol. I know I’m complaining but my heart hurts. You’ll understand. But I did very much (or vermicelli as my autocorrect wanted to say lol) like how their story was wrapped up! I’m curious to see what more Heather has in store for us in the MM world.
Til next time. Happy reading Ramblers! 🤍
Ps my computer has decided to move on to its next life (RIP you had a good life!)….so whilst my reviews for a time will be lacking the gifs I hope they still get across my real feels.
Holy flamin’ mushrooms on toast! This was so torturously perfect! 😍 …if I wasn’t already obsessed with this series this book would’ve done it for me. So much so, I think Jena might be starting to regret her beyond awesome-saucy talents…and now everytime I message her she’s probably thinking…
But girl it’s out of my control. You stuck with me now 😂, an Aussie is a hard thing to shake…after-all you only have to look at all the possible dangers we might have to face for the day 🤣🤣🤣… so the worst you can do is kill me off in your story. So I’m pretty okay with that lol. 🤣🤷🏻♀️
Wow, dude it honestly doesn’t feel that long ago that I started this series, and yet here I am writing the final books review!! What is happening?! I was not prepared for this series to come to an end. Like not even a lil bit. I need more Cait and Roman in my life. Ah scratch that, I need all my favs.
Whew, what a read this book was! Absolutely loved everything about this story…and I hate to say it, but I think this one even topped how I felt about the Wolf Girl series! And we all know how I loved Demi and Sawyers’ story. But there was just something else about this one and I was pulled in even faster. I was just so curious about the hunter societies…and can I just say all my instincts were on point. Which had me all like…
Okay, so I’m going to be honest here and say health is truly 100% kicking me around, so this isn’t going to quite like my usual rambles. Pain is high, sleep has been even worse than my usual, and my heads been woozy and out of it…fun times lol. I’m really struggling to pull words from my brain. It’s like pulling teeth without the right equipment. Painful and deeply ineffective. So I’m sorry about that. Please don’t think my lacking words is a bad thing for the book…but let’s move on to more important things…
Awww my sweet shifter heart 😍🥰. The finale for Nai and Rage’s story is just absolutely perfect. I honestly, loved how Leia and Raye wrapped this world up. That ending…and how everything was fixed has my heart all happy. Couldn’t have imagined it any better. My little inner self is totally happy crying right now. But there’s plenty of sad tears too…coz I don’t think I was even a little ready for it to end.
**To be honest, I’m not sure what people are classing as spoilers these days…I don’t personally feel like I’ve let any loose, but I’ve seen a few comments on Facebook that has me super cautious/nervous. So there could be potential spoilers, depending on your meaning of that. So I guess just be aware of that before reading. I’ll be talking/reviewing book 3 in the Evermore Academy series.
Be prepared for the Ramble up ahead. It’s no joke. No kidding. It’s looooonnng lol.
Holy damn. I need a moment to wrap my mind around all this!! It’s the third day after finishing this book and Daaaaaaaaannnng I’m still not over this. It was AHHMAZING! But seriously one heck of an emotional spinner…like man, my emotions are all over the place. Just wow!
So, the first thing you might’ve noticed is the overabundance of stars for this book, right? You didn’t miss that did you? I’ve never done this before, so this is honestly saying something about this book! It owns my heart completely. And totally deserves all these stars. It was just all things perfect. And was ended to absolute perfection!
Who’s ready to finally get lost in Rage’s head?! If so, your chance is finally here! Raye and Leia have cooked up quite the short story and I’m so excited for you to see it…you’re in for one hell of a treat. So make sure you preorder this baby. It’s releasing very soon on the 9th of March. Countdown is on. 😀
Holy flippin’ pixie dust! Dude that was fantabulous and torturous…and all things perfect, but not like perfect where everything went okay for the characters lol. Sorry to burst any bubbles there. 😉 That ending girl. Not cool. When you told me there were three other endings and this was the lesser of evils…I seriously was like, well dang…and I do not want to know where they went lol. Man.
Holy sweet baby Fae! That. That was just beautiful and perfect. That is exactly how you wrap up a world. My heart may have been broken at times, but you certainly knew how to piece it back together. There was just something so beautiful and incredible with how you tied up Lucinda’s story.
Well, I’ll be damned. Heather has gone and done it again! I don’t know how she keeps doing this to me…and call me crazy, but I hope it never stops. I love the way she leaves me in a mess of emotions and this book is no different! I. Just. Wow. I’m not okay.
Gosh, I don’t even know if I can express how much I loved this book! This book was everything and I think it’s been one of the most anticipated books of the year! The torture of waiting for the second book was seriously intense and when Jena messaged me with a surprise of the ARC early, I was legit out of my mind with excitement. There may or may not have been a lot of emoji’s sent to Jena to express my excitement. 😆
Whattup Ramblers! I’m back with another ARC review. I feel like they are coming out my ears haha. An interesting picture that created in my head 😆…Because I like to prepare you guys, just know my head is legit all over the place. Meds are at it again but my concentration is shot and it’s just free rein up in my head. Just imagine like little cute brain cells running around wild not knowing what to do. Or my personal favourite. Minions. They have taken over control of the motherboard of my brain. 😂
Eeeek oh my gosh guys, you are going to LOVE Heather’s upcoming new book! It releases in like three more days and I can’t wait for y’all to read it!!! I think I just want to go and read it all over again, it felt like it ended waaay too quickly.
