Hardest Fall (Dominion, #2) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Congratulations Juliette Cross on another phenomenal book! Needless to say it, I loved it.

The Blurb:

The tattooed demoness, Bone, doesn’t like anything except the magical weapons she makes. But she has hidden talents few know about. When I was brought to her near death, she used her Seraph song to manipulate flesh and bone to save me. But she wasn’t happy about it. 


Now I must return the favor. Even though she refuses to take sides in the apocalypse, there’s one job she’s not willing to do for the demon prince Rook. If she doesn’t, her head will end up on a spike. Of course, there’s a good chance we’re all going to die anyway, but I will do anything to protect this fierce woman—and not just because she saved me.



So now we’re both off to kill a demon—or three—and possibly save the world. 


5 Stars


I really really love the world Juliette created. It's original, it's exciting, it's enthralling... I was captivated by the story and its setting from beginning to end. 

Bone was a fabulous character. I already liked her in Darkest Heart and she did not disappoint here. I never thought she truly was indifferent to the war, she was too good of a friend to Dom for that. So it was nice getting to know her better, learn her story, and watch her grow into the person she used to be and somewhere inside still is. That fighting spirit never went away, it just... took a little nap ;) And let me just tell you guys, the 'thing' she does towards the end to one of the demon princes was spectacular. That girl has got some moves! 

Xander has got swagger. Most of you ladies are gonna fall for him and fall hard. And to add to that he also has a good heart. He is kind, sweet, funny, loyal... it is impossible not to love him.

I gotta say though that my favorite part was not the new couple but rather all the wonderful moments Dom and Anya graced the page. It made me miss them so very much :) 
That is not to say Bone and Xander weren't great though. They were actually phenomenal and utterly perfect for each other. But, like every reader, I have favorite tropes, and the bad boys almost always have me at 'hello'. 
Now I need a story on Uriel. That bad-ass angel already has my panties into nots. I have a very strong feeling that he is going to compete with Dom for my heart.

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
