The Dread - Gail Z Martin

Still reeling from plague and civil war, the Winter Kingdoms face an invasion force from across the Northern Sea led my a dark spirit mage in the name of ancient, vanquished gods. Summoner-King Martris Drayke and an untested generation of new rulers must stand against an unholy alliance of shadowy invaders. To prevail, Tris must win the uncertain support of the Dread, spirit-beings that stand guard within the sacred barrows over an even more fearsome threat imprisoned within. In the balance lies not only the freedom of the Winter Kingdoms, but Tris’s life and the soul of his young son, whose untested magic might be the biggest spoil of war.

My thoughts:
I like her books for the simple reason that yes they are never awesome, BUT, they are never bad. They are always light and enjoyable. When I pick one up I always know I will enjoy it cos I have with all the rest. And you know, sometimes that is good enough.

Right so shit is going DOWN. Bad peeps from across the seas are coming and they are mad. And honestly, I sometimes say that oh you can read this series without reading that series that come before but with her, nah, just read all in order.

Right, so Kiara have to go and take control of her father's kingdom when he is murdered.
Tris has to save the world as a dark summoner is coming.
Oh and the baddie is coming for their baby! 

Jonmarc is doing stuff, you know I never liked that guy even if the author sure loves him.

More peeps are fighting baddies. 

i really like the POV with the ghost whore....right where was I, Baby S woke and now it has been a day since I started this...
Yes, the ghost whore should have had her own book.

This review makes no sense, honestly, I can not say anything without spoilers....

For me, light and enjoyable. Nothing special, nothing bad. For others, maybe not so light, I mean peeps die, but whatevs.

I like it, but if you look closer her nails are so perfect and long and I was all, no, cut them if you are gonna battle


  1. Light and enjoyable sounds good to me and yes, if you are going into battle, short nails are required. Enjoy your Monday!

  2. Light and enjoyable is always good.

  3. I haven't read this author before. Sometimes an enjoyable read is exactly what you need.

  4. I'd like to read her again soon. This isn't a series I've started yet, but I need to!

    1. I still have that Ice one to read by her

  5. Ooo I have not tried this author but this series sounds right up my alley!

  6. That's how I felt about The Morganville Vampires books ;)

    I haven't read her books but now I'm wondering if I own something by her... But this sounds good.
