Bound To Love Her by Esri Rose

Overview LOVE MAY BE JUST AROUND THE CORNER. When Erin Chandler takes her neighbor’s dog for a late-night walk through the Colorado woods, armed with flashlight and pepper spray, she’s prepared for anything-almost. The last thing Erin expects to encounter along the trail is an elf, not to mention an incredibly sexy one. OR UNDER A ROCK. Attacked by a rival who wants to steal his land and end his life, Galan of Longtail Rock was nearly dead until Erin saved his life by giving him her energy, binding them to each other with mysterious force. Now Galan has no idea how to break their link without paying the ultimate price. But Erin doesn’t mind sharing such close quarters with Galan. Ever since she’s met him, she can’t stop fantasizing what it would be like to feel his lingering kisses on her lips and his warm caresses grazing her skin. As Erin learns more about Galan and his intriguing world, she finds herself falling deeper and deeper in love with him.   My Thoughts:   I enjoyed this book, but I just felt like something was wanting.  The story made you want to read on because it grabbed you, but not fully.  I could have stopped reading it at any time but I didn’t feel like I wasted my time in reading it.  I’m glad I did actually, even though I felt like there should be more.  The author though, has a good voice.  I would read another book from her. You can find her on her website at http://elvesamongus.wordpress.com. I could almost picture her characters when reading, I would prefer clearer pictures, but it could also be that I was distracted by my new baby.  I would love to see where these characters go from here.  I’m invested now as you would be if you read her novel.  It is worth the money.  Happy reading! I give this book 3 1/2 Stars.   Share this:ShareTwitterRedditPrintFacebookGoogleEmailDiggStumbleUponPinterestTumblrLinkedIn

Book Review: SHIEWO: A FANTASY FLIGHT TO ADVENTURE (Book 1 of Shiewo’s Odyssey)

I just finished reading Ciye Cho’s, Shiewo: A Fantasy Flight to Adventure.  It is for the 13 and up group, and I must say that I would definitely let my pre-teen and early teen cousins read it.  The story seemed truly youthful and vibrant; full of colorful characters, wild adventures, and dangers.  It is a good read to get the imagination going.  There are a few missed edits, but not many, so it doesn’t distract from the story.

Ciye Cho is very talented.  If you get a chance, visit her website that goes along with this book series and see what I mean.  Cho’s hands were everywhere in the creation of this series, it’s soundtrack, and it’s interactive site.  Before I received this book, I was very anxious to read it because of the website and book trailer, which I’ve included at the bottom.  So let your pre-teen/early teens delve into Shiewo’s world full of adventure and fun.  The book itself I gave 3 1/2 Stars, but with everything else that comes with it, I have to round it out to an even 4 Stars. 

 

An Overview of the Story:

The universe of Orberana is a place of great wonder and peril, a dizzying landscape filled with clouds that can talk, clockwork beings that mark their own time, and painted animals that awake in the night.

Shiewo Morose is the captain of a flying ship powered by music. She is also a determined young woman on a mission: a quest to find the Wishing Fish that created Orberana.

Sailing above the clouds, Shiewo and her crew (Erduu the bamboo, Theo the cloud, Livingston the goldfish, and Felix the painter) are headed for worlds of crazed clockwork bureaucrats, tyrannic kings, and tornado children—worlds that will test not only the crew’s bravery… but their very understanding of adventure.

Theirs is the odyssey of a lifetime…
