Week in Review: Aug. 3 – 9

This week I:

Finished reading, on Friday, Shadow Hunt (#1 Arash) by Elke Schuster (Kindle book).

This book was an introduction to the world of the Arash which is what a human girl called Livia became by the end of the book. I will put a full review for this book on my goodreads account then a digest of that review on my blog as well as on the NetGalley page for the book with links to the full review on goodreads.

 

I continued reading On the Edge by Jenny Pitman

This is a book about a widowed farmers wife with two children who trains horses for point to point racing. The point that I have reached in the book thus far is where she is deciding whether she is going to move back to Gloucestershire to be nearer her parents and that she’s going to enter a horse for the hunter chase at Ludlow.

 

I continued to read Onyx, #2 Lux by Jennifer L Armentrout

This book is the second book in Jennifer’s Lux Series and it follows the lives of Katie (a human girl) and her friends Daemon and  (who are Alien siblings).

 

I started reading Raytara: Judgement of the Stars (#2 Arash) by Elke Schuster

This is the second book in Elke’s Arash Series which I received from Netgalley. At the beginning this book we see Livia 5 months in to being an Arash and her perfect life is already starting to crumble. The reader is also introduced to a new Arash family who have a fearsome leader called Philomena as well as a centuries old hatred for Randolf (the leader of Livia’s Arash family) which threatens to destroy them all.

It also sees Ruth one of Livia’s sister Arash’s destroying her love affair with Cassius by revealing her secret about where she went when she dissappeard in book 1. Livia also discovers the amazing inexplicable powers that she has but will she be strong enough to save Randolf.

Through this book many questions will be answered: What secrets does Randolf hide from Raytara Judgement of the Stars?,  Will Livia’s best friend find true love at last in most unexpected of places? and Can Livia save own love after all that’s happened?

So far I am enjoying this book as much as I did the first one.
