Irina's Eye by H.W. Freedman Book Review


Irina's Eye

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I RECEIVED A COPY OF THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR AN OPEN AND HONEST REVIEW.

I had such high expectations of this book. I hate to say it but I was disappointed. The story started strong and had a lot of promising but towards the middle, it kinda lost its focus. I felt it was like an autobiography. The main character it seemed pretty humane like in the real world "humane". In the story, you went back and forth with timelines and slowly was revealed the future/past. I think it would have worked better if you went with one timeline past to future.
Also the main character Vaclav did some things to survive which it made his character real but the way he treated women and his relationship with women was weird.

I would have preferred if Irina's eye was supernatural but I am afraid it was not. The whole story with her didn't add up. I felt it was slapped together right in the end. It did take me a long time to finish it because I felt the story wasn't progressing as it should.

The ending was kinda sad because of many things. It was a very interesting concept that's why I say yes for the first time but the book didn't appeal to me as I wanted. For some people, it might do!

Dragon School: First Flight (Dragon School #1) by Sarah K.L. Wilson Book Review

Hello, Bookworms,

I have been reading scary books and very depressing book lately and I thought to myself I need a break my friends and this book came up in search and I was like why not, very rare you could go wrong with dragons!


This book surprised me at how good it was.

First of all, I would like to say finally a female lead that is not perfect!
I was sick of all the female character I read to be these beautiful creatures with all the powers and be awesome at everything. So when I got introduced to Amel( character lead) I was pumped because she had a big disadvantage going into dragon school one of her legs wasn't working and riding a dragon you need both! Because of that, I was so intrigued how the story would go! Like obviously the dragons were awesome because each color had their own meaning and the whole situation was hectic... I am writing this review after reading the four books so more coming this way. I don't want to say too much because ruining the book is no fun.…

Cast No Shadow: A Short Story by Brandon Dragan ARC Review

Hello, Bookworms,

I got my mojo back like I am reading a little faster and I can bring you more reviews in this space.

Before I get into this review I would like to say how awesome it is that authors trust me with their books so I can do an honest review I have to say sometimes don't do them as fast as I wanted, but you know life can get hectic.

Anyway, this book is a short story about a guy that shows us his life and what he chose to do after the war. I loved that it was easy to read and interesting as well. I was keeping expecting the main character to turn into John Wick or Taken and have the phrase I will find you and I will kill you. I mean the whole feeling of the book was kinda like that, but I got so surprised by the ending that I was like WHAT????? I mean the hints were there all along but chose not to see them.

The writing of the book was great, interesting, not tiring and to the point. Love a story when it involves very naturally and doesn't repeat. Also, I loved t…

The Bourbon Kings (The Bourbon Kings #1) by J.R. Ward

This is a different J. R. WARD I got used the world of the black dagger brotherhood and suddenly I read a book that is so different that is refreshing. If you like soap operas then YES PLEASE READ THIS! ( YES I AM YELLING)  it was that good. I am a fan of drama series and generally without drama life is boring! of course, this book doesn't disappoint. We have a few different points of view and for some might be distressing Ward excelled it in it. It didn't feel tiresome and put a new dimension into the story. 
I mean this book is a new Dynasty but better! Oh, the drama! and the story is so interesting. I got so attached to this story that I felt sad and angry and all the feels. 
It is a very different story from her fantasy novels but worth to venture into that territory if you love drama, love, and richness with great compelling characters. 
here is the book, book-gang  The Bourbon Kings
