My 2nd Review of The Crimson Clan (Destiny Phoenix 1)

Kindle ][ Kindle uk ][ Nook ][ Smashwords ][ GoodReads

So I decided after the author took my review into account, and made the changes I suggested, to re-read it and re-review it.
It reads a lot better now. I was given the honor of re-editing the book so I'm not sure if I caught all the errors but I caught most of them if not all of them.
The story is still a great story, and with the revisions made it flows a lot better now. There's no hiccups in it now, and the reader will fall into the story a lot easier.
Destiny still remains one of the most interesting heroines I have ever read about. The story will still mainly appeal to the lovers of young adult and paranormal, but I think readers as young as 13 or 14 will enjoy it as well as any adults that enjoy the young adult genre will.
The story is engaging and full of action. The ending will leave the reader curious to know what happens next.
With how well it flows now, I'm gladly forced to change my rating and look forward to tackling book 2.

My Review of The Impostor (The Alaskan Heart Saga 1) by Tiffany Carmouche

Kindle ][ Kindle uk ][ Nook ][ Smashwords ][ GoodReads

*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This was a surprising story. I'm not really a romance reader, but the author asked if I would read it for her tour and I can never tell a friend no.
I was really surprised! I instantly fell in love with the klutzy, accident prone main character Nicole. Her past is as jaded as my own and I found myself able to easily relate to her and her desire to give her daughter a better life.
I admit Dylan's reaction to Nicole came as a shock. Bradley's not so much.
I found no errors in this work, no formatting issues, everything flowed seamlessly.
The thriller part will definitely keep the reader on their toes even though it's obvious early on who the killer is.
The ending...The ending will without a doubt leave the reader wanting to know what happens next. I personally can not wait to read book 2

My Review of Born in Flames (Born in Flames 1) by Candace Knoebel

Kindle ][ Kindle uk ][ Nook ][ GoodReads

This an amazing start to this series. The characters each have their own feel and the reader will mostly feel a connection to Aurora.
There were a couple of minor errors, and only one I had an actual problem with. There's a scene where Aurora receives a letter and while she reads it aloud and claims Fenn is mentioned in it by name, he isn't. I reread the letter passage four times just to be sure on this.
Other than the font size being really small (I have a kindle keyboard that does not have the option of adjusting font size) I absolutely loved the story. It has without a doubt caught my interest and I look forward to reading the next book to see how much Aurora, Fenn, and Alexis grow from what they are now.
