Series: Ruth Galloway #5


Mystery


Library




I am really reading through these :D I already started book 6!




In this one Ruth, her daughter Katie and Cathbad goes to Blackpool to see if the bones found are those of King Arthur.




Nelson is also there on vacay and looking into a murder of the man who found the bones. The whole Nelson Ruth thing is still so tense. Dang!




I really like Cathbad btw, the weird, really weird druid from book 1 is not a really good friend to Ruth.




As for the murder, I did feel she was more involved before, but now she also has her own things going on. Like omg is that really the bones of King Arthur. Wont spoil that.




I never knew I was such a mystery person




Ruth’s old friend Dan Golding dies in a house fire. But before he died Dan wrote to Ruth telling her that he had made a ground-breaking archaeological discovery. Could this find be linked to his death and who are the sinister neo-Nazi group who were threatening Dan? Ruth makes the trip to Blackpool to investigate, wary of encroaching on DCI Harry Nelson’s home ground. Soon Ruth is embroiled in a mystery that involves the Pendle Witches, King Arthur and – scariest of all – Nelson’s mother.




There are forces at work in the town that that threaten all that Ruth holds dear. But, in the final showdown on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, it is Cathbad who faces the greatest danger of all.

Unabridged Audiobook


Release date: 09-15-20

 


Publisher: Audible Studios

I do love my Toby books, and 3 books ago I went over to the audio side. So yes I am a bit stuck in my own head still, and I am still not sure about Tybalt (kind of how I felt about Curran when I went over to audio there). But Kowal is doing such an excellent job. I am so glad I went over to audio.




Toby and Tybalt are still not married, and he wants it done now! But, faerie law is stupid, and she is told that Simon has to be there. Simon, that complete asshat. So she has to go find him.




Adventure time with friends. Danger a plenty. Faerie being faerie. And blood being spilled.




I do love this series and it is still going strong, though I truly hope that Tybalt and Toby will get married soon, oh and that they will be happy! That poor woman needs a happy ending.




Oh and something happens here that made me go all whaaaat!




Awesome series, what are you waiting for?




And yes the narrator is great, audio is a great way of experiencing this series. Her Toby is the only Toby I can hear now




When October is informed that Simon Torquill—legally her father, due to Faerie's archaic marriage traditions—must be invited to her wedding or risk the ceremony throwing the Kingdom in the Mists into political turmoil, she finds herself setting out on a quest she was not yet prepared to undertake for the sake of her future.... and the man who represents her family's past.

September 22nd: What are some bad reading habits you kicked or want to get rid of?

This is the same answer as last week. My bad habit was finishing everything, and then I got rid of it (well almost,it is an evil habit to have).I do feel so much better when I donot finish every sucky book.

Carole's Monday: Seduce me in dreams by Jacquelyn Frank

 





Author: Jacquelyn Frank
Narrator: Coleen Marlo
Title: Seduce Me in Dreams
(Three Worlds #1)
Genre: SciFi, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
Format: Audiobook
Published: March 1st 2011
Where I got It: My shelf (audible)


Summary: Dark. Mysterious. Sensual. When Bronse Chapel, the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia, begins to dream about a beautiful and exotic brunette, he wants to dismiss it as being induced by lack of sleep ... or perhaps lack of sex. But his instincts tell him it's something different, something far more dangerous.
Ravenna is the leader of the Chosen Ones, a small group of people from her village born with extraordinary powers. She doesn't know what draws her to Bronse's dreams night after night, but she senses that he and his team are in jeopardy. Ravenna can help him, but first Bronse must save the Chosen Ones from those who plan to use their powers for evil. Together, Bronse and Ravenna will be unstoppable. But Ravenna is hiding something that could endanger them all


Review:
Honestly...I do not remember the last SciFi romance I've read/listened to? Mmmm *wrecks my brain*. Have I EVER read SciFi romance??????????? I do not remember. Yesss I have read plenty of SciFi normal (some may have a small element) but yea....I cannot think of one.  

The story follows Bronse Chapel who is the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia. He starts dreaming of a beautiful and exotic woman who is haunting him during his waking day. Little does he know this woman is real. It is Ravenna who is the leader of a small group of people from her village that are born with powers. They are called the Chosen Ones. She doesn't know what draws her to Bronse's dreams night after night, but she knows something will happen to his team so she tries to help him and warn him of the dangers ahead. 

The first 75% of the book I simply could NOT stop listening too. I had to know what was going to happen next. I liked Bronse and I liked Ravenna. It took an eon for him to finally save her and get to her, but it was worth it when they found each other. Not under GREAT conditions, but they really earned each other and helped each other out. 

Now...the last 25% dragged a bit. I zonked out twice. We had fast-paced and then it slowed down quite a bit comparatively. But I was happy they found their HEA and whatnot. 

The narrator was new to me and she did well. I like her guy voices. She did try to make them all different and I appreciate that. Some were similar, but overall I applaud her performance. 

In the end, I am unsure if I will continue to book 2. We shall see. I enjoyed this for what it was and I liked their journey and I huzzahed when he finally found her! The last 25% was not as good though. It slowed down too much for compared to fast-pace and action of the beginning. Overall, I'll give this a 3.
