Circe Review

Circe
Written By: Madeline Miller
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:
     In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child—not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power—the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.



My Thoughts:

 
      I love Greek mythology, I have been fascinated by myths ever since I was a little girl. I have heard of Circe the daughter of the Helios and a nymph, but I never knew how her story really went. I received this book as a gift and was thrilled when I opened the box and saw it, the cover is really beautiful and simple.
     When I started this book I will admit it was a little slow moving, however I had to read more about Circe. I felt so sad for  Circe and the way that her family treated and tormented her. I had never really thought about the fact that the titans and Gods of myth would be so cruel but it actually kind of makes sense that they would because they would have seen themselves as better than any lesser beings. I was very upset when Circe's brother just turned on her after she had cared for him so deeply and was very thrown off at the thought of Helios extreme love for his cows. I found myself feeling everything Circe was going through and understood her transformation into the powerful witch who never took any grief from anyone.
      I enjoyed the last half of the book the most, especially after Circe went to aid her sister during her unusual pregnancy. I felt that Circe was very humanized and extremely easy to relate to. I found myself rooting for her even when maybe I shouldn't have been. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a woman character who finds her strength and preserves through tragedy and torment, as well as anyone who loves Greek mythology.

The Reapers Review

The Reapers
written by: Ali Winters
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:
      
      The balance of life and death must be protected at all costs.

Nivian had never failed to Reap a marked soul. That is, until she meets Kain Evers, a Hunter and the only being on earth with the power to destroy her.

When Reapers start to go missing, the Balance is thrown into turmoil, forcing Nivian and Kain to trust each other as they search for answers. Which is no easy task as they fight the feelings growing between them.

As mortal enemies, they were never meant to work together, now they're forced to protect each other if they want any hope of righting the Balance before all is lost.

Unfortunately, to succeed, one of them must die.

 
 
 
 
My thoughts:
 
   I love stories about reapers, I love all the different ways people see reapers roles and responsibilities. This book was very good, I like how Ali Winters had the reapers as not causing death and destruction but simply cutting the mortals life threads so they could move onto the next phase. I also enjoyed the reapers ability to only be seen by humans if they wanted to be. I love how Nivian challenged things when it no longer made any sense. I also enjoyed the build up of the relationship between her and Caspian and her and Kain. I definitely enjoyed this book and will be reading the rest of the series.

Sins of the father




Presents : New Release

Sins of the Father

by

Marie James

Amazon
US | UK | CA


Genre: MC / Dark Contemporary

Series: Ravens Ruin; Book 1

Cover Designer: Letitia Hasser (RBA Designs)




I'm not misunderstood.

I'm not confused about my position in life.

I'm not looking for answers to explain why I am the way I am.

This is the logic others use to try to make sense of me. According to them. there has to be a reason for my apathy. There has to be some sort of explanation for the calculating way I run my Club. There has to be a root cause for my depravity.

They can't wrap their heads around the fact that I'm evil, that I'm darkness personified. Doing so would force them to acknowledge that the Devil has left Hell and is living among them. 

Most people may think I'm Satan, but I answer to Lynch, President of the Ravens Ruin MC, and the Antichrist doesn't have sh*t on me.
