Synopsis

Everyone will betray you…

Sophie has always had a high opinion of herself. She is smart, beautiful, and meant for something more than a mundane, human life.

From a young age she’s had to weigh duty against selfish desires. Her new friend Izzy starts to break down her carefully-constructed walls, and makes Sophie question everything she thought she knew.

With witch-hunters and witches vying for a place in her future, Sophie has to decide who she can trust.

Goodreads Book Review

Sophie (Witch-Hunter)Sophie by K.S. Marsden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 51 of my Goodreads Challenge 2019

***Warning this book contains some horrific scenes, so beware!***

I absolutely LOVE this book series and want to thank the author for my advanced reading copy. This is the second prequel to the Witch-Hunter Trilogy and does contain spoilers from the trilogy so it is highly recommended that you read The Shadow Rises, before finding out more about everybody’s favourite cold-hearted bitch SOPHIE.

Teenager Sophie Murphy is beautiful, arrogant and cocky. She is something very special amongst the witch community, although as yet she has not come into her full power being so young and still in training.

The witch council are trying to find the tool or key to unlock Sophie’s full potential but who can she trust? She has no friends, but does become close with Izzy a Wiccan who is in many of the same classes as Sophie at school. Izzy begs often to go to the events hosted by the witch’s community but Sophie always refuses. Wiccans are not seen in a favourable light by true witches.

Sadly Izzy sneaks to one of the events, and this will be her undoing. Sophie and her aunt have to give Izzy a potion to make her forget all she has seen. However, will the spell last or will there be dire consequences? Check out the story for yourself.

This is a wonderful addition to the Witch-Hunter Series I cannot wait to get my hands on a print copy to sit on my Book Shelf of Favourites.


The Shadow Rises (Witch-Hunter #1)

When a new witch threat rises, only Hunter Astley can stop them… 

In the face of dark magic and evil witches, a secret witch-hunting society works tirelessly to keep them at bay. The Malleus Maleficarum Council have strict rules and practises for eradicating magic.

Due to their work, witches have been almost forgotten, relegated to myth; but rumours are starting to emerge of a new power that will throw the world into chaos.

As the only 7th generation witch-hunter, Hunter Astley is the best the MMC has to offer. With the help of his colleagues, it’s a race to track down this new threat and stop them… in any way he can.

Part one of the Witch-Hunter trilogy is Free to download from most ebook retailers.

15 Goodreads ‘As Dreams Are Made On’

As Dreams Are Made On

As Dreams Are Made On by Maria Gibbs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 15 of my Goodreads Challenge 2018

 

THE STUFF OF DREAMS

(I have now read this several times but could not resist another one.)

OK being totally honest I was unsure about this little book when I first came across it. The title threw me off, not being a big Shakespeare fan I was unaware that it came from ‘The Tempest Act 4, scene 1, 148–158’ spoken by Prospero. When you know this and discover what he is talking about then this title fits the story perfectly.

Prospero:
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d tow’rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

Life for Matty is one long deep dream, she is caught between the love of her husband and the love of a handsome stranger. I was hooked from the start. Yes it is like a kind of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ story but with a few unexpected twists and turns. I never saw the end coming at all and I am not ashamed to say I cried. I cannot say more without giving away the story, you will just have to buy your own copy and find out for yourselves.

Just as wonderful and exciting as the very first time I read this.
