The Shadow Throne Review

336 pages
War has come to Carthya. It knocks at every door and window in the land. And when Jaron learns that King Vargan of Avenia has kidnapped Imogen in a plot to bring Carthya to its knees, Jaron knows it is up to him to embark on a daring rescue mission. But everything that can go wrong does. His friends are flung far and wide across Carthya and its neighbouring lands. In a last-ditch effort to stave off what looks to be a devastating loss for the kingdom, Jaron undertakes what may be his last journey to save everything and everyone he loves. But even with his lightning-quick wit, Jaron cannot forestall the terrible danger that descends on him and his country. Along the way, will he lose what matters most? And in the end, who will sit on Carthya's throne?

The Ascendance Trilogy has been amazing from start to finish. Jaron is the type of hero who isn't perfect but does what he thinks is right with an exceptional level of cunning. Jaron doesn't disappoint in this final novel in the trilogy. As usual Jaron takes us on a journey where we don't really know all of his plans and are left to be delighted by his intelligence in foreseeing how to save his country and Imogen. While Imogen and Jaron haven't had the easiest relationship, he will still do anything to save her. The plot twists are probably my favorite thing about this series, you think the story is going in one direction then it just drops a bomb on you out of nowhere. There is plenty of action and adventure in this novel and it takes us on quite an exciting ride coming to the conclusion. I definitely recommend that you read this novel if you like adventure stories but make sure to check out The False Prince and The Runaway King first.

Movie Monday: Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars was a show that I absolutely loved. I truly wish there were more seasons, so I am glad that they have rebooted this show into a movie! This movie is basically about a high school reunion Veronica comes back in town for although she's also back to solve another mystery. All of her friends and some enemies are back to help her like in the good old days. If you've never seen Veronica Mars go watch all of the seasons before this movie is released on Friday! Go now!

Movie Monday: 300 Rise of an Empire

More than likely everyone reading this post has seen 300. While an excellent movie, it did have a pretty sad ending. This sequel, titled 300: Rise of an Empire, continues the battle and shows the full force of Greek soldiers pitted against the Persian army. This movie looks action-filled so I'm excited to check it out. It comes out this week, March 7th, so if you haven't seen the original 300 make sure to check that out first!

Killer Frost Review

384 pages
Release date: February 25th, 2014
I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine. Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about. Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.

Review (ARC):
The Mythos Academy series is one that I am so glad to have seen grow and develop into a story that you just can't put down. I have to say I'm sad to see Gwen's tale come to an end. Gwen has become a stronger and worthy champion of Nike, and just wants to protect her friends and family. Gwen has a lot to worry about as the time to her showdown with Loki draws near. There isn't a calm before the storm, rather Loki's followers seem to be making a point to make more trouble before the final battle. In the midst of it all Gwen and Logan's romance has reached a point where it's slightly sappy but still enjoyable with every thing else going on. There is a lot of action and of course some romance which keeps this novel entertaining and exciting as it comes to the end. I definitely recommend this entire series especially if you like mythology.

Movie Monday: Divergent Trailer

Dystopian stories have been making it to the big screen quite often in the past year. Hearing that one of my favorite series would be joining such films was a thing I've been anticipating with relish. Veronica Roth has created an amazing world in her Divergent series. Looking at the trailer for the first novel, I am absolutely excited to see how they bring to life the bravery of Tris and the world of the factions. The release date for this film is March 21 so make sure you go out there and read the book or better yet the series!
