Review : A Curse Of Ash And Iron

  Title: A Curse Of Ash And Iron Author: Christine Norris Publication Date: May 21, 2015 I received a copy of the book from YA Bound Book Tours for an honest review. Goodreads Summary: Benjamin Grimm knows the theater is much like real life. In 1876 Philadelphia, people play their parts, hiding behind the illusion of their lives, and never revealing their secrets. When he reunites with his childhood friend Eleanor Banneker, he is delighted. His delight turns to dismay when he discovers she has been under a spell for the past 7 years, being forced to live as a servant in her own home, and he realizes how sinister some secrets can be. She asks for his help, and he can’t refuse. Even if he doesn’t believe in ‘real’ magic, he can’t abandon her. Ellie has spent the long years since her mother’s death under the watchful eye and unforgiving eye of her stepmother. Bewitched and hidden in plain sight, it seems no one can help Ellie escape. Not even her own father, who is under a spell of his own. When she sees Ben one evening, it seems he is immune to the magic that binds her, and her hope is rekindled along with her friendship. My Review First of all I want to say that Curiosity Quills Press’ (the publisher) book covers are always so gorgeous!...

EXCERPTS: Chapter Two Monday Before my gangstah-rap neighbor emptied his AK-47 into his buddy, the most exciting thing to happen in our village was the opening of a new grocery store. The store hired a pianist who played Beatles tunes, no doubt to persuade shoppers to part with their money more easily. My neighbor, rapper King Bling, was helping his fans part with their money too, but the shooting ended all that. Once he made bail, he moved and hasn’t been heard from since. And so it goes in my...

Release Celebration Day 2: Dark Deeds by Michelle Diener

On Tour with Prism Book Tours. Welcome to the Release Celebration for Dark Deeds By Michelle Diener Dark Deeds is book two in the Class 5 Series. If you missed Michelle’s release-day message, go read it HERE and don’t forget to grab your copy of Dark Horse, book one, while it’s on SALE for 99¢! Come back on Friday, January 8th, HERE to read an excerpt. There’s a fabulous Amazon eGift Card giveaway as well. Enjoy! Inspiring Characters A while ago, I was interviewed on whether I was more character focused or plot focused in my novels, and I said fifty-fifty, because while my books do tend to have big plots, the characters are always my inspiration for my stories. In Dark Horse, which is the first book in my Class 5 series, Rose McKenzie, the heroine, jumped into my imagination and started the whole ball rolling. I couldn’t get her or her adventures out of my head. I think the idea of alien abduction fascinates us because we would be thrown into a completely new paradigm. While that would obviously not be easy, it also holds the promise of exploring an unknown world, and as humans, curiosity and a thirst for knowledge is what makes us tick, and the idea of every day being a new adventure is seductive. Both Rose and Fiona, the heroine of the second...
