I’ve been exploring the Kindle Unlimited offers on Amazon, and I’ve not been disappointed! This has become an affordable way for me to feed my voracious book reading habit. For book reviewers like me, this is an excellent way to read books. It’s also a great way for authors to up their readership and still get compensated for the read. If you have your book available through Kindle Unlimited… thank you! Now, let me introduce you to some novels I absolutely loved! ❤
I’m so behind in reviews that I’ve decided that a monthly post will be the best way to move forward in 2022. So, welcome to my February reads!
Magical New Beginnings: Paranormal Women’s Fiction (Midlife Witchery Book 1) (I did not review the next two books in the series).
I had high hopes for this book and the series. I loved the author’s description of these books. Just imagine a woman in midlife finding out she is part witch and part fey! Think of the possibilities!! Most of you know I love my fantasy series! And these books were on Kindle Unlimited and advertised all over Facebook!
The premise is good. A woman in her mid-forties finds out she has magical abilities… the rest of the book is about how Fiona learns she isn’t human but a powerful hybrid. She’s also a Guardian to a world she didn’t know existed. Along with the help of some friends, she comes into her powers, stumbling along undirected. Her half-witch, half-fey presence has brought danger to the magical area she now lives in. Hopefully, she and her friends can keep it together. Then, book one ends…
The author must be young because she describes Fiona as if she has more aches and pains than Whistler’s Mother! No one in their mid-forties would moan and groan about their knees like Fiona does. However, with all those ailments, she still has wild sex with Sebastion, the hunky faery guy.
I read three books into the series, hoping the story would expand and develop, but it was not to be. The first three books in the series are exactly the same. There are also major editing issues. I felt like the author wrote these books to hook middle-aged women into buying the books. Sometimes you have to tell it like you read it!
“Golden Healer” is the second book in The Curse of Time Series by M. J. Mallon. Amelina’s destiny is to become a magical Krystallos, and along with her friends, they set out to learn the secrets of the crystals.
The plot takes the reader on a roller coaster ride, much like the one Amelina’s father ends up riding in the book. Ryder is back as a Shadow Sorcerer. His hypnotic powers now threaten Amelina, which means the Curse of Time could steal away her father once again.
Using poetry as an introduction to each chapter is a lovely Segway into the chapter events. I also liked the use of crystals. My favorite part of the book deals with the Crystal Cottage and the mythical beings that guard it.
I borrowed the KU version of this book. It’s so good I’ll buy the paperback. If you love crystals or use them for meditation, this is the book for you!
“Crystals for Healing” covers the healing properties of 99 of the most common crystals. The book details the use of crystals along with the chakras to heal emotional distress and other ailments.
From the author:
“Detailed profiles—Alphabetized for easy reference, each crystal profile provides an overview of the stone’s essential characteristics, everything from its origins to ideal positioning for healing.
Healing remedies—This book recommends the crystals you need (often two or three) to overcome issues or ailments, such as crippling fear or insomnia, or to attain specific goals, like improving empathy or being open to greater prosperity.
Identification made easy—With bright, detailed photography, this book will teach you to recognize powerful crystals and gemstones at a glance, like Amethyst, Tourmaline, and Carnelian.”Amazon.com
This is an excellent book to begin your healing journey with crystals.
