Notes: Darker than what I typically read, but still worth it!

This was a strange, dark, and lyrical tale of a necromancer. It’s a bit unusual, as I typically am not a dark romance reader, though I’ve heard of this from a few friends and decided to give it a try.

Pierre Salvador is a surgeon and the heir to a duchy, returning to court after years away at University. Now the childhood friend he left behind has grown-up–and is still not wed. But she does not know of his dealings with Mora, the Lady of Death, or what the jealous goddess wants him to do in return for her dark magic.

~Description from Goodreads

I did think that this could use more, the slow build crescendo to the end was nicely done, though it left readers hanging. I liked Pierre, and I liked the idea behind the story as well. I was honestly more interested in the boy who wanted to bring back a girl (won’t say more due to spoilers), but the entire novel speaks of even more stories to be had in the next volume of the adventure.

I’m not going to say that this was one of my favorites, though it is one that I’m still thinking about days later. The ideas for the story are intriguing, and I would love to see how much more in depth the necromancy becomes. Will it be as unique as Dresden Files, for example, or will it not deal with magic but more of the romance? I have added the next book to my wish list, and hope to soon be able to purchase it when I am able.

As it stands, I’m giving this novella a 4/5 stars for creativity, a nice slow-build of a plot, and for the fascinating characters!

Until next time,

Title: We Own the Sky
Author: Sara Crawford

Publisher: CreateSpace
Type of Book: Amazon Temp Freebie, Kindle Ebook, New Release, Book One of a Series
Rated: 5/5 stars
Review Word Count: 250
Notes: Another cover that I love!

Music, passion, and muses play a big part in this unique fantasy contemporary alternate world in which muses were once greek gods that inspired us to write, create, and come up with original ideas. The main character is a girl who can see the muses…something that no other human can do. The plot is what made me really want to read the book, but that gorgeous cover definitely helped push me along!

I really loved the many different songs that popped up throughout the book, several of which I recognized being a big music buff myself. I liked the rapid pace of the book, how one could fly through each chapter and without warning come to the end of the book and go-did I really just finish that in a few hours? I want more!

This book is adorable, beautiful, unique, and fun. Filled to the brim with teenagers, music, drama, adventure, and romance it read like that of a movie, and I could definitely see this book hitting the big screens, if it gets the attention it deserves.

I cannot wait for book two, which I hope comes out soon. I highly recommend trying this book out, it’s definitely worth the time to read.

Overall, I’m giving this book a very well deserved 5/5 stars!

Until next time,
