Valentine Morland has waited nine years to meet her scientifically determined matchmate… Now, she must marry him. #somethingblue#comingsoon #reveal #newteaser #dystopianromance #romance #valentine#myfunnyvalentine #tattoos #puzzlepieces #matchmate #blissinc #corporate#ecstasy #bliss #formulafortruelove #waiting #bookworm #booklove#bibliophile #dystopia #bookblogger #newrelease

In the city of Monopolis where happily ever after is just a scientific formula away, Valentine Morland has been waiting nine years for her day to come. Now it’s here, and she will marry the man of her dreams, a stranger to her, before being swept off to life of carefree luxury and bliss, courtesy of the Jigsaw Project. However, all is not as Valentine imagined as her new husband is quickly discovered as not the man of her dreams, but one who claims he isn’t capable of love at all. Harbouring an intense paranoia for the system, which upholds the very idealist fantasy that Valentine holds so dear, Clark threatens to throw her into a world, not of bliss, but of scary consequence where her every emotion is under scrutiny. Can it be that the scientific formula with a 99% success rate got it all wrong, or is everything in the world of Bliss Inc. more sinister than it seems?

Review: When Our Worlds Collide by Kellie Wallace

Standard

wowc-teaser-3

If you’ve been a fan of this blog for a while, then you know that we cover a LOT of Kellie Wallace’s work.  She’s a multi-genre author, who just happens to encompass all of our favorites.  Her recent work, When Our World’s Collide, is a Dystopian tale with a nice Robin Hood arc (or at least that’s what we thought). Once you read about The Ravens, you’ll understand 😉 148d121f772ba894a932f8d5462c5a2a

Amira’s peaceful city is taken over by a military regime, while it seems that the entire world is fighting in a bigger war.  Resources are thin and in a bid to be a help to her family, Amira accepts a position within the regime. Amira finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and to her beliefs.

This story has good bones and the overall theme is good.  The love story within it left me a teeny bit sour though.  The fellas were not likable by today’s standards at all. I’m not sure what the time period is for this story, but given that Wallace writes about World War 2 frequently, I would imagine it is somewhere in that realm.  The story moved quickly and kept me hooked enough to keep reading and want more! I’m giving it a 4 out of 5 Stars and continue to be a fan of Wallace’s and look forward to seeing more of her work. Dystopian fans and fans of intrigue should enjoy this tome.  It’s dark, so probably not for young teens and definitely not for kids.

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Type X by M.A. Phipps

Standard

Okay, let’s start this review off with a link to my review of Book 1 in the Project W.A.R Trilogy, Ultraxenopia.  Trust me, it will save you a lot of time and confusion, not to mention, I can save a bit on my word count. tumblr_inline_npyun1MlsB1rxr4x6_500

So, now that you’ve gone and read about Book 1, let us proceed to Book 2. (Dr. Richter will be pleased with your progress) …(Okay, inside joke for those who’ve read the books 😉 ) Normally this is the part where I insert clever memes and gifs, but M.A. Phipps has generously provided me with some teaser pics that will do nicely.

Type X, picks up 2 years after the last book.  It’s hard to say much since I don’t want to give spoilers, especially since Release Day isn’t until Friday 08/19/2016! Anyway, 2 years later and Wynter is not the naive girl she used to be.  She has become a weapon, brainwashed by the State and used to destroy cities and countries with a mere thought.  She’s like Jean Grey’s Dark Pheonix, seriously, it’s bad.  x-men-apocalypse-trailer-hints-at-dark-phoenix-will-jean-grey-go-bad-ok-this-visual-is-778725So while Wynter is focusing on surviving and getting her Dark Phoenix on, the actual resistance known as Pheonix is plotting her extraction.  Eventually, she’s caught off guard and ends up reunited with her former friends.

Par the course for brainwashing, Wynter doesn’t remember ANY of them, and her rescuers have become her captors.

This book has a LOT going on, in a good way, not a confusing one.  Wynter has PTSD, 67415704Stockholm Syndrome,amnesia, and uncontrollable powers to contend with.  All this going on while a civil war is brewing…seriously, M.A. Phipps, have you ever done a stint as a writer at Marvel?

 

I really enjoyed this novel and I need to thank my lucky stars and the author for allowing me to read it as an ARC.  I’m absolutely giving this book a 5 out of 5 stars!tumblr_louhxo5DxL1qzj6s0.gif It’s Dystopian and if you like the Hunger Games, Divergent, The Giver, etc. You’ll love this one.  It’s got a lot of violence and a bit of sexual content so I’d rate it at a PG level.  Probably 15 years and up would be my conservative recommendation on this one.

You can pre-order it on Amazon, or just wait until Friday, but either way make sure it’s on your e-reader! (or book if you are so inclined.) I’ll set up some stalking links below and leave you with this teensy tiny disclaimer…..* I don’t own Marvel, Jean Grey, Dark Pheonix. I only borrowed their images from the interwebs.  Marvel don’t come after me, it’s really flattery to mention your franchise in this post…M.A. Phipps wrote a good one 😉 

Join M.A. Phipps on Friday, August 19,2016 to celebrate the release of Type X! Lots of great authors will be attending as well as Phipps herself! It’s sure to be fun…and we all know you’ll be checking Facebook anyway 😉 Type X Release Party

Wolfen by Alianne Donnelly

Standard

I just finished Wolfen by Alianne Donnelly and what can I say but ….”WOW” 😮 It’s a Dystopian master blend of Sci-Fi, Paranormal, and Horror (which makes up 50% of my reading interests 😉 ).

12363047_1088608317838917_6693018731897231045_o

In a dystopian backdrop, humanity has gone to hell in a handbasket as genetically modified monsters known as “Grays” or “Converts”have taken over most of the world.  They are creatures who live purely to “breed and feed” with no regard for what they feed on.  While these monsters wreak havoc on what’s left of humanity, another subspecies of genetically modified humans known as Wolfen, are trying their best to survive and forget about humans altogether.

Brothers Bryce and Aiden the Alpha and Beta of the Montana Den, encounter Sinna, a young woman whose Wolfen identity was concealed from her. They take her under their wing and try to teach her what it means to be Wolfen. While on their journey home, they are captured by a mad scientist who runs a colony with an iron fist, and performs experiments on captured Wolfen.  The trio are forced down different paths and the story unfolds in so many different ways from there.

This book is very well written. I liked the cover, yes I’m a cover snob.  I think I only found 2 typos in the whole thing and that’s pretty amazing, (there are some mainstream books that have tons) so the editing was great.

I have to say, this is my favorite Dystopian book to date.  It has everything you want, Action, Romance, Good Werewolf/Human hybrids, Bad Werewolf Zombie Monsters, Mad Scientists, Borderline Mad Scientists, and weird colonies that remind you of an episode of The Walking Dead.  It was also the first book EVER to give me nightmares!  (Kudos to the author for that)  I ABSOLUTELY give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend all of you guys/gals get a hold of this beast and sit back and enjoy the ride!  I would rate it at as suitable for the 15 years and up crowd because of violence and extreme situations.

Wolfen is available at all the regular book buying spots:

Ultraxenopia By M.A. Phipps

Standard

The trailer pretty much says it all.  Don’t Stand Out…Remain Invisible… Wynter Reeves is just your average oppressed 20 something who wants her assigned place in society and to blend in with the masses.  She’s never thought about life in any other capacity.  One day, when she tries to sit in on her job placement exam, that all changes.

Through a series of painful “panic attacks”, she does something that she’s always feared: Drawn attention to herself!  The government soon takes custody of her and her life becomes sheer hell.

Tortured on a daily basis, Wynter is losing her will to live. Her “panic attacks” turn out to be visions of the future. During a torture session, she sees herself with a man her age looking sorrowfully at her while surrounded by complete destruction.  This seems to encourage Dr. Richter and he plans to up the torture factor, to extract more information. At this point, Wynter knows she needs to escape or she’ll die. (This part is pretty intense and I seriously didn’t know how it was going to be pulled off)  When she finally manages to escape, she finds herself in the secret lair of PHEONIX and Ezra Laramie, the man in her visions.

Ezra, mysterious, handsome, and standoffish. He instantly distrusts Wynter and gives her the cold shoulder. Could this really be the person she’s supposed to trust? The person who is going to help her survive? Can she trust her new protectors?  Will her time as a captive of the government compromise the group?  Can Ezra be trusted?  Is she merely a pawn in a war that’s never ending?

All these questions came up during my time immersed in Wynter’s world and they were all answered.  I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.  The only reason I didn’t give it the full 5 was because I felt it was a little to fast paced and the relationships between characters were a bit rushed (I would have liked a bit more in the Getting To Know You portions of the story) With the way the story ended, I am assuming there will be a sequel (hopefully soon :D) and maybe the character backstories will be clearer and the relationships will be explored in more detail.

I would recommend this book to my Dystopian loving buddies, Sci-Fi fanatics, and Fiction enthusiasts. If you’re a fan of the Divergent Series, then you especially need to add this to your library!

Ultraxenopia is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and the Author M.A. Phipps can be found at maphipps.com

Good Stuff On It’s Way!

Standard

Well as stated, Adult Romance is wrapped up and tucked in tight.  I’ve got some Dystopian stuff coming up in the next few weeks for Reviews.  The Author Spotlight is going to become a weekly thing, especially since I ran a contest about it on Facebook. The results were better than expected and once I finish this post, I’m going to tally up the winners!

Roanoke Author Invasion is coming soon and it’s pretty exciting, I even made bookmarks to hand out!  They’re pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

So Monday, if I get my act together, you’ll get to read all about my experience with

Ultraxenopia by M.A. Phipps  it looks good…real good 😉
