Review: Fantasy of Flight by Kelly St. Clare

Reviewed by Elle

Fantasy of Flight is the second book in the Tainted Accords series, that began with Fantasy of Frost.

We pick up the story, right as book 1 finishes – Olina has left the safety of the Kings guard, and with her blue eyes, is passing for a Bruma named ‘Frost’. In return for food and a roof over her head, she agrees to become a pit fighter, taking on some of the outer ring’s most brutal fighters. Her veil has been destroyed and the only way she can ever return to her position as Tatuma is to find the material to replace her veil. If she cannot do so, she’ll be stuck in the pits as her ‘Frost’ persona forever. But maybe that wouldn’t really be so bad? [Read more…]

Review: Juked by M.E. Carter

Reviewed by Elle

I’d often seen this book talked about in a book group I belong to, so when it was made free on Amazon, I decided I’d grab a copy for myself. I didn’t even read the blurb, since I’d seen so many people recommend it. All I knew about it was that it was a sports romance about a soccer (or football depending on which country you live in) player.

Juked started out great. Quincy’s world is rocked when she receives the phone call no one ever wants to get. Come to the emergency room, your sister has been in an accident. I felt instant sympathy for Quincy, especially as it turns out that her sister was her only surviving family member, and they hadn’t spoken in several months. The unthinkable happens – Quincy’s sister doesn’t make it. As bad as that is, Quincy is even more stunned when a nurse hands her a newborn baby- her nephew that she had never heard of. There’s no father on the birth certificate, so Quincy is it. The baby is hers to raise unless she wants him to go into foster care. [Read more…]

Review: Fantasy of Frost by Kelly St. Clare

Before I say anything else about this book, I firstly need to have a fangirl moment – eeeeepppp!!! This book was sooooo good! So good, that when I finished it, I immediately got on every social media platform I have and raved about it!

But lets back track. Fantasy of Frost was the debut novel from self published author Kelly St Clare (She’s since published quite a few more!). As the eldest child, Olina is the princess of Osolis. She is destined to become the next Tatum, taking over from her mother. She should have led a charmed life – instead she’s lived a life worse than those in the poorest village of her world. Veiled from birth, no one, including Olina, has ever seen her face. She’s been locked away, tortured and beaten for reasons known only to her evil mother. But things are about to change. [Read more…]
