Divinity Falling Cover, Coffee n' Notes, Nour Zikra

Blurb

Fierce twenty-two-year-old Addy hasn’t had the easiest of circumstances. Then she runs into Adriel, a half-naked young man with major back burns, kickstarting a series of disasters in her life, mainly her younger brother Reed disappearing into thin air with a strange man. She immediately suspects Adriel is the culprit. After all, Reed’s kidnapper had the exact same burn marks on his back.

Adriel, who a few hours ago had been a guardian angel, doesn’t know why he is on Earth with a human heart pulsating in his chest. After he sinned, he was sure he would be cast into Hell. Instead, the wild young woman he stopped for help on the road won’t stop questioning him about her missing brother.

Although Adriel claims innocence, Addy doesn’t believe him until she comes face to face with Lucifer, the lord of Hell, who has imprisoned Reed. Lucifer awakens the demonic blood dormant within Addy and sends her on a mission to corrupt human souls. His desire: to wage war on Heaven with an army of demon-turned humans.

And not following his plan? That’s a sure way to get Reed killed. Against Adriel’s objections, Addy must follow through with a job she never signed up for—preying on human souls.

Review
5 Stars

This is a spoiler-free review.

A small disclaimer… I read this book at a very hard time in my life when my mom wasn’t feeling so good and to top it all our beautiful dog Menta passed away, Reading this book not only made this time pass easier as I was truly immersed in the story.

Wow, wow… Wow. I can’t stop saying wow, hehe.

I truly enjoyed reading this book and I can’t wait to know more and read more.

This is a dual point of view story, between Addy and Adriel. Most of the time I can’t fully connect to these types of stories but here it was well made and thought off, that you can feel the characters and see their desires and understand how they work.

The main character Addy is so strong and so relatable, I instantly got invested in her and I enjoyed seeing how the character growth over time. I love how fearless Addy is especially with helping her lost brother Reed, but she herself is dealing with new issues as new things awaken in her and the things she finds about herself only makes her even stronger and better at understanding what is really good dor her. Addy showed her true self in these pages and I was fully connected to her because of that.

Adriel is such a strong and great character as well, that as a fallen angle needs to deal with so much as well but also poove to Addy that he is not the monster she thinks he is. This story cured my reading slump I was in and helped me with the sadness I felt, weird I know… But it’s the truth.

I loved the characters so much, each and every one of them felt so real and so strong in their beliefs, it made the story flow so smoothly and feel so much stronger as I read deeper into the story. They’re so much more I want to know and understand, I need more books by this author 😀

The writing style is on point, it usually takes me a few chapters until I dive deep into a story but here, from the first chapter I was completely in and hooked.

This story has everything you need, pure exciting adventures, angles, and demons, family and love. I think it’s a must book to read in this fall season and a must in every book lover’s TBR ❤

*** Don’t forget that it’s the last day that you can pre-order the book for a great deal, so grab it while you can.

Review

3.5 Stars

The story starts with Lucy and her friend Sam and together they fight spirits. Soon enough a murder changes everything and together they try to figure things out.

Sam, who is a medium, tries to communicate with the spirit and understand why the spirit is so angry. Lucy and Sam have dreams where the spirits try to help them solve the murder.

I really liked Sam a lot more than Lucy and I could connect to them very easily. We get to learn more about Lucy and it made me connect to her and understand her a lot more than Sam. Even though I like Sam a bit more than Lucy, I still wanted to know more about him and his past, but there weren’t many details about Sam’s past.

At first, it took me a bit to connect with the story and the characters. It was a slow read up until then I got to the first third of the book. From there, the story unfolded and I started to really care about the characters.

I loved the writing style itself, but there were a lot of grammar errors which really made it more difficult for me to read and enjoy the book (the reading flow was interrupted by the errors). This is the main reason I gave the book a 3.5-star review and not a 5-star review. I had to re-read the same paragraph again and again and it just slowed down my reading.

The other thing that really made the reading a bit slower was that I felt as an outsider. I enjoyed the plot a lot and loved the helping spirits, but I really wanted to get to be more involved with the story.

To sum things up, I really liked reading the book. It’s a good paranormal story with some nice twists. It has strong characters and the scary bits were done really well. I think with a bit more editing, this book would have gotten a 5-star review from me.

Book Review: Blondes, Books & Bourbon

Blondes Books and Bourbon

Stars

Extremely love it.

Blondes, Books, and Bourbon is a collection of wonderful stories. Mr. Alvey is a private investigator who is also a magic practitioner. I loved all the stories and I love the writing style of the author as well.

The author introduces us to new and unique creatures, spells and the overall magical uses. Ridley made the world, the characters and the overall magic in such a real way, which made me feel extremely immersed into the book more than other paranormal books out there.

The author’s (Ridley) writing style is so relatable and fun. The simple things and characters are shown in the stories in such a unique way that you know that this is Ridley’s style.

Mr. Alvey is such a well written main character, that I truly enjoyed his attitude and how he deals with the problems he faces. Even the magic and the way Mr. Alvey uses it makes Mr. Alvey even more unique and exciting to follow.

From the beginning you get really invested in the character, the story (stories) and from there on you are all in 😉 The book ends in a very satisfying way, but you are still left with the feeling of “I want more”.

From the beautiful cover, the well-written characters and the wonderfully told stories, the book leaves you wanting more – much more!

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
