I love to read. I really do. Sometimes I just love to find random books and start reading them. It's usually something off the beaten path or just something I find on a bargain table. When I worked at Barnes and Noble I use to get all kinds of books there that were random and very obscure. It made me happy when I got to find new authors.
I think that is why I love to read and review things for new authors. I find so many new books that I just love love love. I did find a few that were not all that good, but I still gave honest opinions. If you are an author and reading this, I will always be honest about what I write. I just can't sugarcoat something like a book review. I would hate to give the wrong review and then have someone come back later and ask me why I said something that was not true.
That being said, here is today's review....
Book Title: Firefly: Ice Born
Author: P.M. Pevato
I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)
I really enjoyed this book. I went in hoping that it would be a book that would grab me. I have been reading books between my reviews that are so hard to get into and some I have just not been able to finish. I was glad this one started with a bang and kept me engaged. You start off with a little snow and magic and goes on from there. What more could you ask for from a book? They are always good when you start out with something so exciting.
As I kept reading I started to love some of the characters. Of course you have a great strong female lead, but sometimes she kind of irritated me. She second guessed herself at times. But the other characters made up for her lacking confidence at times. I especially loved Ben. I love how he interacts with Emeranna. I think that their relationship is being set up be a great one in future books.
I think the only thing that kept me from giving this a full five stars was that it ended so harshly and some areas seemed forced or rushed. I think that it could have been stretched out some to make the story flow better, but over all this book was an excellent book and I am so looking forward to the next books in the series!
Pros: Strong characters and a strong story line
Cons: The ending left me a little off. I think that some areas felt rushed or were not fleshed out enough.
Over all rating: I would definitely recommend this book to others!
