Pinnacles and Princesses

Blood Broken by Lindsay J Pryor (Blackthorn #8)

I expected a roller coster. What I got was a bullet train.

Sophisticated, intelligent, daring and so so fast. And not once did I want to get off. Even when it stopped.

The last book in this remarkable series is breathtaking. Emotion and sentimentality crash into an extraordinary story. Ms Pryor has created a truly fantastic world, detailed and rich, spectacular really. This is the pinnacle of the series.

Its the kind of political intrigue that Westminster was built for. Niccolò Machiavelli is turning in his grave, green with jealousy. And it’s completely and utterly believable. When vampires, witches and other creatures reveal themselves to us mere humans this is what it will be like.

I’m not going to give anything away as that would be mean, but Ms Pryor is a rule breaker. I like her philosophy, if you’re going to break rules don’t just chip away – smash them.

I totally recommend this series and the finale with everything I have. Get ready peeps – your heart is going to pound, your stomach is going to churn, your pits are going to stink and as for your girlie parts?! Woah!!!

Enjoy!

And finally … a heartfelt thankyou to LJP for a series I love with my whole being. You write like a Goddess so I can read like a Princess. Thank you.

Romantic Dancing and ice cream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Haven by Lindsay J. Pryor (Lowtown #1)

I loved it. I savoured every single word.  Ms Pryor delivers an urban fantasy masterclass

What stood out for me was the romance, it’s heart breakingly romantic.  I’m a sucker for romance, I’ll admit I probably watch Strictly Come Dancing hoping for romance.  Haven reminded me of a brilliant Viennese Waltz – beautifully romantic with constant twists and turns that left me dizzy and breathless.  My heart ached and ached.

I adored Nate’s sensitivity and all male softness.  He reminded me of peanut butter ice cream – cool, unexpected and with real depths of flavour. And let’s not forget the crunch – cos I love it crunchy!  (It’s also my fave flavour so I’m biased.)

As for Ember I loved that she was determined, smart and strong without being tough or spiky.  How refreshing is that?  I just hope we haven’t seen the last of these two.

This is urban fantasy infused with tendrils of romance.  If either genre appeal to you then this is your perfect read.
