Book Blitz: "The Goblins of BellWater" by Molly Ringle




 Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out. Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister Livy is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract. Then Kit starts dating Livy, and Skye draws Kit’s cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods. Skye and Grady are doomed to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever, unless Livy, the only one untainted by enchantment, can unravel the spell by walking a dangerous magical path of her own.

They had carried Skye up, up, up the trunks into a fantastically weird bunch of cobbled-together houses and bridges and mismatched dim electric lights that they had built all around a huge swath of evergreens. A treetop village, but its surfaces slimier and its inhabitants more disgusting than any of the fantasy fairylands Skye used to envision. Somehow she understood she could only see the place because she had taken their path and eaten the blackberry tart. She also understood that although she had only been carried a few hundred yards off the road, she was now almost totally out of reach of regular humans.
 “You love these trees, yes?” their leader had said. Skye gathered her name was Redring.
 “Yes.” Skye couldn’t lie, her tongue answering as if under some honesty potion. She still lay in the arms of half a dozen goblins, their prickly hands clamped all over her body.
 “And you wanted to see us. You accepted our invitation. We are so flattered, darling one.”
Redring leaned closer, her foul breath spilling across Skye’s face.
“Some we would simply steal from, and leave to fall apart, but not you. You we would like to keep.” “Me. I want her,” another goblin said, bulling his way in against Redring’s shoulder.
Or at least, Skye assumed it was a he. His voice was deeper and his gaze upon Skye more lustful—it made her shudder, but all she could do was avert her eyes. Redring shoved him.
“Be patient, Slide!” She grinned at Skye again and softened her voice.
“You see, there is a procedure for this. You will go home again, but eventually you will come to us.” Someone shoved another sticky bite of food into Skye’s mouth: orange marmalade.
She grimaced, but her obedient enchanted mouth chewed and swallowed it.
 “You will want to,” Redring continued. A different goblin crammed what tasted like musty mince pie into her mouth. She swallowed that too.
 “You will lose your way in the human world.” Another stuffed her mouth with stale cake with raspberry filling, gelatinous and with too many seeds. Tears of despair ran down her temples, yet she ate it.
 “You will come to the woods and choose your mate.”
 “Me!” the gruff goblin shouted, while someone smashed a handful of candied cherries into Skye’s mouth.
 “Shut up!” Redring told him, and the others cackled. “She called to us, so she gets to choose. Besides, it’s more fun, watching to see who she picks.”
She turned to Skye again. “And when you have withered enough among the humans, you will join us here. You will become goblin.”

Review: "Tower of Dawn" (Throne of Glass #6) by Sarah J. Maas. Fangirling and Many GIFs!

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.



My feelings after finishing Tower of Dawn were a whirlwind of happiness, angst and many, many pop culture references! Knowing that this book was a connection between "Empire of Storms" and the final book, then it was vital for me to absorb every tiny detail and truth revealed.

Chaol and Nesryn travel to the Southern Continent in order to ask help from the known Healers of the Torre Tower and also beg for help from the powerful khagan and his princes and princesses. Mysteries, hidden truths and romance, all tie perfectly in this novel!

Let's begin with the world-building:
Sarah had mentioned that she was inspired by the Mongols and their history as she wrote the series. After reading the book I can safely say that you don't only find parts of the Mongolian civilazation here; there is evidence of Arabian culture, deserts and mountains, forests and even jungles in the farthest parts of the Southern Continent.
There are horse tirbes, where I got some Drogo/Dothraki memories,

 the powerful ruk fighters, warriors who fly on huge FREAKING EAGLES,

 and of course the beauty of the Torre Tower with its ancient library, the Baast cats (Egyptian reference here) and the amazing underground pool-hot spring!

Characters: Chaol finally got his redemption. I had the feeling that he was also delayed by three books, especially after the events of "Crown of Midnight". With Yrene's help and magic not only did he find a new reason to live but also discover how wrong he was about Aelin, himself and the horror of living with an abusing parent. Through Chaol, Yrene and Nesryn many social issues are touched: racism, gender prejudice, abuse and slavery.
At this point, if I were to compare the khaganate with the kingdoms of Adarlan, I would pack everything and go live to the desert! Slavery is forbidden, everyone work in the palace and they are paid, the citizens are free to commenrse, THERE IS FREE EDUCATION FOR ALL TOO!
The Khagan was a scary man but all powerful ones can be. The tradition of his court and family is a brutal one, which was also used from the Sultans in the Ottoman History.

Now for the royal siblings: Arghun the first Prince is the politician and a jerk. Kashin is responsible for the army, my lovely Sartaq is the Captain of the ruk riders and Hasar is the leader of the naval forces; and she has a wife. Duva is the last one and a quiet princess.
From all the characters, I enjoyed Sartaq more, especially after he leaves with Nesryn in order to go to the aeries of the ruk. And boy, did they see many surprises there.

Yrene was a glorious character. A POC, a strong willed woman who also teaches the young healers how to defend themselves. She is strong and beautifully described. I would love to see more fanart of her! Not to mention that her relationship with Chaol evolved through the course of months. In many parts of the book, you get to see mentioned events from "Empire of Storms".

Tower of Dawn is one hell of a book, which ties everything with the final one. Also, there was a tiny glimpse of the Fireheart in the ending which honestly?

It. Gutted. Me.

Blog Tour+ARC Review+Giveaway: "The Superhero Syndrome" (Solstice Survivors #1) by Caryn Larrinaga

Today we have the blog tour for Superhero Syndrome by Caryn Larrinaga! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!


Title: Superhero Syndrome

Author: Caryn Larrinaga

Genre: Paranormal Romance

About Superhero Syndrome:

Tess McBray was dying. The Solstice Syndrome had no cure, and she resigned herself to an early grave. But just when she gave up on survival, all her symptoms mysteriously disappeared. All but one symptom, anyway. Something is wrong with Tess’s hands. They absorb any material they touch, and her skin turns to wood, or steel, or concrete. It doesn’t take this comic-book obsessed 21- year-old long to figure out what’s going on: somehow, she’s developed super powers. And she’s not the only one; across the country, people are coming forward and sharing their gifts with the world. In her own city, where the police are battling a human trafficking operation, a masked vigilante called The Fox is saving lives and stopping criminals. Tess doesn’t know where she fits into this new, super-powered world. But when people around her start disappearing, she can’t just sit on the sidelines. Teaming up with The Fox might be the only way to rid her city of evil and save the people she loves most.

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

This was a hidden gem for me. Inkslinger was asking for more blogs to participate and when I saw that this book had super heroes in it, I jumped in the chance! "Super Hero Syndrome" follows Tess, who is dying from an unique disease. When a meteor shower passes over Earth, she wakes up the next day, healed...and with special powers.

Crime fighting, a mysterious vigilante and action ensures as Tess tries to discover the mystery behind the power-appearing all over the world.

This book is a meeting between X-men and DC. There is humor too, in the mix. Also Tess loves comics which made me like her more as a heroine. She is smart and reacts logically in everything happening around her. Her co-operation with the Fox is also really good. 

I can only hope that this book will have more sequels because it's actually really good!

About Caryn Larrinaga:

Caryn Larrinaga is a Basque-American mystery, horror, and urban fantasy writer living in Utah with her husband and cats. Her debut novel Donn’s Hill (March 2017, Immortal Works Press) garnered rave reviews from fans of the cozy mystery and paranormal genres, and her new urban fantasy Superhero Syndrome (September 2017, Twisted Tree Press) will be out this fall. Watching scary movies through split fingers terrified Caryn as a child, and those nightmares inspire her to write now. She lives in a 90- year-old house with a colorful history, and the creaking walls and narrow hallways send her running (never walking) up the stairs from her basement. Exploring her fears through writing makes Caryn feel a little less foolish for wanting a buddy to accompany her into the tool shed. When her fingers aren't glued to her laptop keyboard, Caryn also enjoys binge-watching Netflix with her husband, reading, playing video games, and filling up her phone's flash memory with pictures of her cats. She loves music and plays the bass guitar. Caryn is an active member of the League of Utah Writers and the Utah Chapter of the Horror Writers Association.

Cover Reveal: "Conduit" (The Infinity Series #1) by C.C. Dowling

Welcome to the cover reveal of the new upcoming Halloween release by REUTS Publications! The cover is gorgeous and the story also fits the Halloween spirit!


When college senior Jane Lamb dies suddenly, she discovers that the afterlife is less pearly gates and fluffy clouds and more standing in line at the DMV. But before she can spend eternity lamenting over her short, unremarkable life, she’s offered a do-over—as a Conduit, a reincarnated messenger contracted to reap souls.

Determined to do things right the second time, Jane takes the job and reincarnates as eighteen-year-old college freshman Liv Hartley. Only, the excitement for her new life doesn’t last. There are consequences to bearing the coveted infinity symbol tattoo marking her as a Conduit, and Liv quickly finds that getting a second chance doesn’t mean getting a better one. Possessive demons, stolen assignments, and a love life that’s decidedly complicated are all a far cry from the mundane existence Jane led. But with more questions piling up than bodies, there’s only one thing Liv knows for sure: life doesn’t get any easier after death.

Filled with sparkling wit, conflicted romance, and more spirit than a haunted mansion, Conduit is a fun-filled paranormal that explores the idea of regret, love, and what we would give to live twice.


Title: Conduit

Author: C.C. Dowling

Release DateOctober 31, 2017 (Halloween!!!)


When she was a child, CC Dowling knew two things. That she would never have kids, and she would be a writer, which makes her right half the time. CC shared her passion for writing with music and science, and still does.
She spent the first half of college singing, and most of the second half in a lab. After twelve years spent chasing a four year degree, and enough college credits to ensure student loan debt well into her nineties, CC graduated in 2009 with a B.S. in Biotechnology and went to work playing with stem cells and neuro pathways.
Now, CC lives in America’s finest city with her preschooler (who plays in the back yard with the faeries), her husband (the financial shaman), her aussie (with mesmerizing blue eyes), her very real pet dragon (who guards the perimeter of her house at night), and an unknown bundle of joy currently taking up residence behind her belly button. When she’s not working or writing (which is still technically working), CC can be found playing a round of disc golf with the boys and the dog, or desperately trying to figure out which pair of sandals are the most appropriate for the harsh Southern California winters.
Her debut novel, Conduit, is the first in a New Adult Paranormal Romance series.

Top Ten Tuesaday: Ten Books That Feature Characters who break the stereotypes of their World

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Tuesday #120: I decided to show strong female characters who want more from their worlds. No matter the genre and the obstacle their overcome it and become stronger!

                                                  (Wonder Woman reference here!)

10: Eloise from "Off Book" by Jessica Dall: Eloise is a character who waits to be written! She doen't know in what kind of book she will end or if she will survive the Plot. So, when a serious threat arises, she will embark on a journey to save all the written characters!

9: Tessa Gray from the "Infernal Devices" by Cassandra Clare: Tessa grew up just like any girl in 19th century. But seeing how strong a femal can be in the Shadowhunter world, she slowly changes her view of the world.

8: Yelena from "Poison Study" by Maria V. Snyder: Although she is considered even lower than a slave, the poison taster, she learns how to defend herself and even discovers a plot against the Commander!

7: Ella from "Ella Enchanted" by Gail Carson Levine: A different Cinderella stroy where Ella is the rebel and wants to escape the norms of her curse! A delightful read, which I picked up after watching the movie!

6: Ismae from "Grave Mercy" by Robin LaFevers: I still need to read this series. The idea of female assassins in this time period is amazing!

5Agnieszka from "Uprooted" by Naomi Novik: I never understood why she was considered "plain" or "ugly". Agnieszka is strong, manages to surprise the Dragon and become a powerful enchantress.

4: Lucy Piper from "The Untold Tale" by J.M. Frey: Pip is a 21st century independent woman who is thrown into a fantasy world were women are supposed to either be "damsels in distress" or mothers. Of course she doesn't agree with this book's plot! :)

3: Audrey Rose from "Stalking Jack the Ripper" by Kerri Maniscalco: Aubrey wants to work as a forensic scientist, a job which is only exclusive to men. Yeah, try keeping this girl away from what she loves to do, even if it includes studying...corpses.   

2: Celaena Sardothien/Aelin from "Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas: It's not only Celaena who is shown as an empowered person in this series. All the female characters in one way or another are strong, don't fear to love and want more from being just women.

1: Elisa from "The Girl of Fire and Throns" by Rae Carson: A sheltered princess who must survive assassination attempts and discover the history of her own people. Definitely one of the best YA out there!

Release Day Blitz+ARC Review: "The Queen" (The Masterpiece Duet #2) by Skye Warren

Title: The Queen
Series: The Masterpiece Duet #2
Author: Skye Warren
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2017


I have one chance at a new life. A college education. A future outside of Tanglewood's dark walls. For a breathless moment it seems like I might actually escape.

Then I get a phone call from home.

Damon Scott is my own personal dragon, the fight I've always lost, the secret hope of my heart. And he needs my help right now. Only my mind can solve the puzzle. Only my presence can keep him sane as the city fights against him.

Only my heart can unlock a man with such a tragic past.

This is my final gamble, with everything at stake. One last game to win a future for both of us.

And a love strong enough to break the city apart.

THE QUEEN is the final novel in the bestselling Masterpiece duet, about a game of lies and loyalty, of betrayal and power, and ascension to the city's throne.

Purchase Links




I flinch, glad he can’t see me across two thousand miles. Even working in the kitchens most nights only covers my food, my textbooks. Not the tuition bill. “You’re the one who wanted him to work for you. You’re the one who made him the stake in our last game.”

“And you’re the one who lost,” he says lightly.

“Do you know where he is?”

“Of course. Like you said, he works for me. I would be a careless employer if I let my men go wandering off, gambling and racking up debt and questioning their loyalty to me.”

A shiver runs through me. “Then where is he?”

“He’s a grown-up, Penny. Like you are now. He’s responsible for himself. You only need to worry about your studies. I’m sure Algebraic Topology is taking up plenty of your focus.”

It’s one of my courses this semester. How does he know that?

“Stop playing with me.”

“Why should I?” he says with a soft laugh. “It’s so much fun.”

Frustration stings my eyes, hot and damp. I look up at the wide-open sky, willing myself not to cry. There are a million stars visible here, most of the land owned by Smith College or one of the other campuses. So much land, so much pride. There aren’t buildings climbing on top of other buildings, as if they might sink into the concrete ground if they don’t. There aren’t glass towers reaching to an endless black sky.

“I’m never coming back,” I say abruptly.

His laugh falls silent. “I know.”

“I hate it there. I hate Tanglewood and being powerless. And most of all I hate you.”

The last part is a lie, because I don’t hate him. I’m drawn to him; I’m repelled by him. It’s far too complex a relationship, an equation I’ve never been able to write. It makes me wonder if I’m lying about the other parts—if maybe some twisted part of me misses home.

If some twisted part of me misses being powerless, too.

“Ah, Penny,” he says, sounding infinitely weary. “I hate you too.”

The words shock me, but the hurt inside shocks me more. He shouldn’t be able to wound me. Three years away from home, growing up, growing strong. It should have been enough armor to protect against anything he could say to me. But the arrow sinks deep, proving that I’ll never be able to escape him.

“What did I do to you?” I ask, quiet, in a voice like I’m six years old again. Like I’m speaking to the wild boy I found by the lake, one I lured into my trailer like a wolf.

He answers the same way, a surly teenage boy, fierce and vulnerable at once. “You made me care. You made me want, when I needed to leave. You made me feel, when I would have preferred to die. You brought me back to life.”

And I condemned him to torture. That’s what happened when he sacrificed himself so that I could stay safe. Two children with so few choices. “I’m sorry,” I whisper.

“Don’t worry. I got my revenge, after all.”

My blood runs cold, almost subzero at the words. There’s only one person left in my sad little family. One person he could hurt. “Did you hurt him?”

“By giving him a job when he couldn’t hold one down? By paying him enough that his daughter could escape the city, could go to a fancy college instead of becoming a corner-store whore? Yes, I’ve been horrible to him. A monster.”

“Then why isn’t he answering his phone?”

In the pause I can picture him in a three-piece suit, reclining in one of his ridiculously expensive leather chairs. Some amber liquid in a crystal-cut glass. “Don’t come back,” he says, his voice grim. “You made it out of here. Let that be enough.”

A soft click ends the connection, leaving me bereft.

And more worried than before.

Something is happening in Tanglewood, something bad enough for my father not to call, something horrible enough that even Damon Scott has warned me away. I look up at the infinite stars, but they’re dimmer than before. The whole world muted. It wasn’t a new life that I found so far from home. It was a long dream, and now I’m painfully awake.


I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I really enjoyed this book. While dark romance is not a genre I read easily, due to showing some unpleasant themes, this one gave a heavy weight to the emotional development of both Damon and Penny, as they both struggled with their feelings for each other and their past.

There is action, and cameos from the first series. Despite it's alost short length, the story feels complete and gives a satisfied ending to all the characters.

Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars. It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart. If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies.

Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves--and, ultimately, to save herself. Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen…
