The Forgotten Queen Synopsis:
Retelling Camelot. As an infant Avalon is stripped of beauty so that all that remains are her dra­matic green eyes. She is taught from birth that Arthur is her des­tiny. Out of curios­ity she watches him in the lake and finds it impos­si­ble not to fall in love—and yet he is the king. It’s not until a love tri­an­gle between Guin­e­vere, Lancelot, and Arthur forces Camelot to the brink of destruc­tion that Arthur real­izes what a fool he has been.
Raised in the shad­ows, sub­servient to the Lady of the Lake, Avalon rises above it all to become the true queen of Camelot. She is the for­got­ten queen … and the sole bearer of Arthur’s heart.

Genre: his­tor­i­cal fan­tasy, folk­lore, fantasy


My Take So Far:
It took some times for me to get into the story as I never read anything relating to the tale of Camelot, but I am slowly but surely really enjoying this book! It has it all: Romance, thrill, suspension, and drama! My review will be up soon!




Vanguard of Hope Synopsis:
LISETVILLE, 1890 -- Murders are committed; homes are burned; family secrets are buried; an unexpected romance complicates lives. Amid the mystery and violence, a vigilante brigade emerges to administer justice.
Flowing through the intrigue and drama is a dark undercurrent that will touch your heart as you empathize with the victims.

My Take So Far:
I actually still need to really get into the book since I am only in the first chapters. So far it has a bit of a slow start as it is introducing each characters, but since the rave for this book is so high I am curious to find out what will happen next!


The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) Synopsis:

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.
Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

My Take:
This book was FANTASTIC! Read my (VERY) enthusiastic review HERE!


 




Pretty Dark Nothing Synopsis:
When demons invade her dreams and tease of her death, Quinn, and Aaron, a boy with amnesia, must find a way to banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.

Book Summary: It’s been twenty three days since Quinn has slept for more than minutes at a time. Demons have invaded her dreams, stalking her, and teasing of her death. The lack of sleep and crippling fear are ruining her life. Energy drinks and caffeine pills don’t make a dent. When Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. The demons are determined to keep them apart, and Aaron from discovering the secret locked away in his memory. Together, they could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.

Goodreads Rating:


Sophia Within Synopsis:
Only time will tell if Sophia, Alec and the world are ready to accept the mission that has been passed down for many generations. This is more than a story of reincarnation. This is a story that never ended following the reign of the Greek gods.

What has been hidden for thousands of years is about to surface in a small New England town. The impact on this rural village is ageless, but only the chosen time travelers know what is happening, the reason it is happening and how to control the outcome.
The Men of Ages have walked the Earth unnoticed since the time of Greek mythology and have kept their ancient war alive by transporting the lead warrior in a most unusual time machine. There is only one way to stop the cataclysmic demise of the human race and Sophia is the answer. But, Sophia is a teenage girl faced with many human and nonhuman desires that create a tortuous path from antiquity to the present day. Love conquers all; or, so it seems.

  1. Great list! I like the cover for The Forgotten Queen. I just finished reading PREY by Michael Crichton. I liked it. I don't know what I'm going to read next, maybe Marie Lu's PRODIGY or Amanda Hocking's WAKE.

    Happy reading, Blogger-Buddy! :)

  2. Pretty Dark Nothing sounds awesome Ms. Peach! Interestingly, I just read Insomnia by J.R. Johansson which also features (not surprisingly) insomnia.
