Voracious Readers – TBR Books

As well as all the books I have on my shelves, on my kindle and all the books I am asked to review, I also review for Voracious Readers. This has been put on the back burner recently though, thanks to my blog becoming more popular with author requests to review their work – which of course, takes precedent over all else.

Here are just some of the books I have yet to review for Voracious Readers – there are ALOT!

Haze by Rebecca Crunden

Blurb: When Eliza Owens gets a phone call in the middle of the night from a girl she’s never met, she doesn’t know what to think. The girl introduces herself as Paige, and says she used to date Erik Stern, Eliza’s fiancé. What’s more, she has something important to discuss.

The only problem? Paige has been dead for years.

Believing it to be a sick prank, Eliza tries to force it from her mind until Sam, Eliza’s older sister, tells her she met Paige only a few weeks before. And, according to Sam, Paige has nothing nice to say about Erik.

The fight which follows shatters the lives of everyone involved, and Erik disappears without a trace.

Five years later, Erik returns to town after his father’s death. Old wounds quickly resurface, and with them several burning questions. None of the least of which is: Who spoke to Eliza and Sam if it wasn’t Paige? And why?

Fallen Men by Brian O’Hare

Blurb: A young priest’s life spirals out of control when long-submerged memories of childhood abuse begin to surface. He seeks solace in a friendship with a beautiful seventeen-year-old choir girl but this leads to a frenzied love affair that ends in disaster. Fallen Men touches on some dark themes but it is ultimately a novel of redemption.

Legacy by Michelle E. Lowe

Blurb: A thief, a lover, and a toymaker; drawn together by fate; unlikely champions against a powerful and remorseless enemy. When not fighting each other, they must defeat the powerful Lord Norwich, and end his plan to unleash global violence and crown himself emperor of the world. No problem.

But behind the scenes, the Trickster god is manipulating men like puppets, changing history to his own ends and for his own amusement. As an ancient plan is set into motion, the trio are faced with events they do not understand and may not survive.

Legacy is the first of an epic new series that combines Fantasy and Steampunk in an unforgettable novel set in Victorian England.

Dreamleaf Blues by Sean Davies

Blurb: Genevieve Jameson had a life like any other adolescent until the eve of her eighteenth birthday celebrations, when Annabelle Jones, her life-long best friend, roommate, and love interest all in one, never returns home from her well-paid shady evening job – a line of employment that Genevieve believes is dealing the strange blue hallucinogenic drug, Dreamleaf.

After following the threads of her investigation to the organised crime gangs’ booming drug business, Genevieve is brought to death’s door during her snooping and transformed into a Vampire Nightclaw, a being capable of impressive feats of agility and grace.

Discovering that there is more to her world than meets the eye, Genevieve is dragged into fighting alongside her vampiric maker’s gaudy and thuggish ‘Golden Fangs’ gang, through a mutually beneficial arrangement and a healthy dose of blackmail. She is forged into a deadly fighter and keen tactician as she uses her new-found powers to search for answers regarding her beloved’s fate.

Tardy Bells and Witches’ Spells by Sarina Dorie

Blurb: Nerdy high school outcast, Clarissa Lawrence, has always felt like she didn’t belong in this world. More than anything, she wants magic to be real – and not just because she’s obsessed with Harry Potter and tries to go to Narnia by reading fantasy novels in her wardrobe.

Yet, when she stumbles upon real magic, and fairy tales come true, she doesn’t expect to be the evil villain in her own story. Clarissa learns she’s descended from an evil witch and is destined to kill her older sister.

When she meets a cute boy who offers to train her in magic, she must make a choice. She can have a safe, normal life and no harm will come to anyone. Or she can choose magic and risk everything and everyone she loves in order to be what she’s always known she was meant to be… a wicked witch.

Ten Years of Darkness by Kristen Chambers and Viktor H. Strangewayes

Blurb: A demonic plaque carried by time-traveling bats, a dripping mechanical construct from ages past, and a talking quill which gleans the truth from a person’s blood. A few months ago, that would have been enough to make Kristen question her sanity, but after everything she’s seen, they seem pretty par for the course.

After a brief encounter with a mysterious stranger leaves Kristen with an unusual Magical artefact, she begins to realise there is far more to our world than she’s been told, and the very future of humanity may just rest in her hands. Joining forces with some rather unlikely allies – a nervous neighbour whose dreams of Magic are quickly turning into his nightmare; a diminutive yet feisty Lumynar, who may be the last of her kind; and a wisecracking demon who happens to share the moniker of a fictional spy – Kristen sets out on the journey she had always dreamed of, but may not be prepared for.

With potential horrors looming on the horizon, access to Magical resources obstructed by powerful forces, and more questions arising with each encounter, our heroes must band together and fight for their world and the fate of humanity. But for every question answered, many still linger: Have they chosen to support the right factions? Are their goals worth more than those they are fighting against? And worst of all, have they gone through the entire process before?

I think 6 is a healthy number to stop on. I’ll share another six with you very soon! I hope you enjoyed my post. Which book do you think sounds the best? Have you read any of them?
