I found my Kindle – What’s on there?

I honestly can not remember the last time I read a book on my Kindle. I’ve always preferred holding a real book and flipping the pages than holding a device and pressing a screen/button for my next page, so when I lost my kindle, I wasn’t actually too bothered.

My pal (also a book reviewer – check out his page here – Swords & Spectres – Book and audiobook reviewer to the fantastic, the spooky and the far-out (wordpress.com) and I were talking about books, of course, and he made me realise that I needed to find my kindle. One week later (at least 3 house moves since I last used my kindle, so no judging), I HAVE!

These are just a few books out of A LOT that I’m really excited to read!

Devil in Me by Stephanie Hudson and Blake Hudson

Blurb: Lilly
The Devil can see me and knows when I’m watching.
The Devil can hear me, when I whisper his name.
The Devil can feel me, when I sneak in and try to touch the sin of his world. And the Devil can taste me, when I scream in the night.
The Devil is my stalker and I am his only weakness.
The one soul that continues to slip through his fingers, no matter how many times he tries to conquer it.
He is the King of Hell and I am his greatest Sin.
He is the Devil waiting and I am being lured in.

Brent
My wife. As soon as I found out her soul was in Hell it’s all I can think about. A nightmare that consumes me.
So, I have no choice. I have to make a deal with the Devil.
Six souls taken for one soul returned.
But there’s a catch. There’s always a catch.
The Devil wants to use my body as a host.
He wants to monitor his investment. But then there’s a complication. An internal battle begins, and I have to fight the Devil for the rights to use my body how he pleases and the only thing that pleases him…
Is her.

My thoughts: Goodness *fans self intensely*, well if the blurb can get me all hot and bothered then I’m certainly very excited to give this one a read. I love the fact that the book is written by a couple and this will likely increase the chemistry between the two characters immensely. Though I do love books with a bit *cough cough* of sex in them I do enjoy the books more when they have a solid storyline which, from the blurb, I think will be mainly from Brent’s point of view as he needs to make a deal with the devil. It will be interesting to see how this pans out, will it go his way or will the devil win?

Have you read this book? Am I in for a treat? Please let me know in the comments.


Witch’s Reign by Shannon Mayer

(#1 of the Desert Cursed Series)

Blurb: I am cursed by the desert I was born in, and now I wander the space between the Walls meant to hold my kind-the supernatural kind- in.

If I can find a way out, if I can find a way to escape, perhaps I can outrun this curse. But that means passing through the Ice Witch’s realm-something no one has returned from.

But life has a funny way of changing directions on you. A freak accident. A child in danger. And a damn Warlock named Merlin who thinks he can manipulate me.

It looks like I’m about to start a journey I never planned on, to face a Witch who has never been challenged, in an attempt to survive a storm of magic, danger, and trickery.

My thoughts: I’ll admit, this one was one that I was drawn to because of the book cover. I don’t think I even ever read the blurb so I’m guessing this was one of those Daily Deal books.

Saying that though, it does sound like a good book but I can’t decide from the cover nor the blurb whether it is aimed more at Young Adults or not. I want to know more about the curse, I want to know more about the ice witch and I definitely want to know if this Warlock called Merlin is the Merlin we all know from the story of King Arthur. I like that this book is part of a series and I will certainly be reading the others if I enjoy the first book.

Wolf’s Head by Steven A. McKay

Blurb: When a frightened young outlaw joins a gang of violent criminals their names – against a backdrop of death, dishonour, brotherhood, and love – will become legend.

ENGLAND 1321 AD

After viciously assaulting a corrupt but powerful clergyman Robin Hood flees the only home he has ever known in Wakefield, Yorkshire. Becoming a member of a notorious band of outlaws, Hood and his new companions – including John Little and Will Scaflock – hide out in the great forests of Barnsdale, fighting for their very existence as the law hunts them down like animals. When they are betrayed, and their harsh lives become even more unbearable, the band of friends seeks bloody vengeance. Meanwhile, the country is in turmoil, as many of the powerful lords strive to undermine King Edward II’s rule until, inevitably, rebellion becomes a reality and the increasingly deadly yeoman outlaw from Wakefield finds his fate bound up with that of a Hospitaller Knight…

“Wolf’s Head” brings the brutality, injustice and intensity of life in medieval England vividly to life, and marks the beginning of a thrilling new historical fiction series in the style of Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow.

My thoughts: I’m really excited to read this book. Who doesn’t enjoy the story of Robin Hood? I enjoyed the Disney version in which Robin Hood is a fox, I enjoyed the movie with Kevin Costner and the late Alan Rickman (RIP), I could go on… but I’ve never actually read a book about Robin Hood.

I think what I will enjoy about this book, even though Robin Hood was a real person, this book is fiction but will probably cover a lot of what really happened and won’t leave out the brutality of war. I feel I haven’t read enough books set in medieval England and this would be a good place to start.
