White hot kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hello everyone and welcome back on Meandbooks,

Today I have the pleasure of reviewing another book by Jennifer L. Armentrout, White hot kiss of which I had mentioned in the previous review, the one about Frost like Night by Sara Raasch.

I can say for sure, after reading many books of this author, that her stories of love involving, amalgamated great in fantasy stories, exceed them all. They are so enthralling that I still am amazed that the author in the same year – for example, 2018 – publish from three to five books, and even if the basis for the release dates seems that she doesn’t devote to the book as long as necessary, each of her books are always more beautiful, engaging and innovative than the previous one. Her writing style is out of the ordinary.

Let’s consider our protagonist Layla. She is a teenager, she does things that all the guys her age do. Goes to school. But that’s not all, because despite her seemingly ordinary life, she’s half demon and half gargoyle, she can not kiss a boy because she risks stealing his soul, and she was raised by the Gargoyle, which are a kind of demon hunters.

I have to tell you the truth, I bought the book because from the cover it seemed like a real romance, and I know how good Jennifer is with that genre, but when I read the plot and I saw that there was also fantasy in it I was more attracted and I started reading it almost immediately.

White hot kiss was a breath of fresh air because if you read the previous review, I was stuck with Frost like night for a lot of time, and I needed something different to distract me a bit. Jennifer is always the perfect candidate to get me over the reader’s block.

In this book there is also a love triangle, and in general I don’t go crazy for them, but there are those of Cassandra Clare and Jennifer that every time melt my heart, and as usual, when it comes to a saga, Armentrout builds an ending that makes me suffer a lot. It’s as if she knew which characters is capable of capturing a reader’s heart, and she purposely decides to make something bad happen to make us suffer.

Our protagonists in this book are Zayne, Gargoyle grew up with the protagonist, Layla half demon and half Gargoyle and Roth, the charming Roth ( the boy of the cover), prince of the underworld that rises to the surface and enrolled in school only for protect and help Layla.

The plot of White hot kiss is compelling, the pressing pace, and I can not wait to be able to read the second volume, I absolutely must know what’s going to happen to each one of them.

Hello everyone,

today I will try to talk to you about Frost like Night by Sara Raasch, final volume of the trilogy begun with Snow like Ashes, followed by Ice like Fire.

As you well know – I start from the beginning – I liked the first book a lot. But i didn’t felt the same for the sequel, which I liked a lot less but it was saved with the breathtaking finale that made me want to read the third as soon as possible, with the hope of a more hypnotic ending. So, alas, it was not. Disappointing is a strong word, but for Frost like Night is the only adjective that I can associate.

Obviously my thought is subjective, because I know many who have loved it, and others who have not even managed to finish it.

This review is what gave me the strength to finish it. To know that in the end I could talk with you readers and vent me a bit. All I need to do is go and see that it took me 18 days to finish this … this very long rate of time says it all. When I had lost hope, I started to read at the same time White hot kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout: it was so exciting that I read it in 4 days, just because I had to spend some time reading Frost like Night otherwise I would have finished it before.

I do not know why but during these last two books I developed a certain aversion to the character of Meira. On the other hand, I fell in love a lot with the Jesse-Ceridwen couple. The only times I liked reading the chapters of Meira was when she was with Mather. POV exclusively of Meira have become a real torture throughout books. I read the others with great pleasure, but when I got to her chapters I had to turn off the kobo for a while. I can not explain how it could happen since she is the main character.

In the end, however, to get back to the story, they have completed their mission, with however suffering losses. The flaw of the final? For me it was too predictable.

I do not know if you read the other books. Let me know. However, I can not give this book more than three stars, indeed, this judgment is rather gracious thanks to a marriage that has earned a starlet.

Apollyon – Covenant series #4 by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Apollyon - Covenant series #4 by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hi everyone,

After I’ve finished reading Apollyon, i firmly recommend you to read first Elixir, because it explain lots of thing on what happen between Deity and Apollyon.

Of course Jennifer L. Armentrout didn’t lose her touch neither in this book. Her type of writing is always so hypnotic that i can’t imagine how she can be so good at writing and in the meantime she seems to became more good at every book she writes.

in this book, many things that in the past books could seem irrelevant, became useful to understand lots of thing, like who’s the god whose Seth ancestor, even though, if you be careful during the reading, you’ll understand it before the half of the book and you don’t have to wait until the end to find that out along with Alex.

Speaking of Alex, Jennifer has been able to to add scenes of love and tenderness between the two main characters, despite the war and devastation that surround them; despite all the half-blood and the gods who try to kill them.

This book can actually be defined as a book of passage, because it helps us to unveil some very important mysteries and also helps us to discover the full potential that Alex has as Apollyon, but then in this book it does not happen so much as in previous, even if Alex and Aiden go into the underworld, then try to go to the university where there are other survivors and there they meet and clash against the mechanical bulls of Hephaestus, and in this small battle one of their group also dies .

But the real challenge appears at the end, when they discover and meet the god who plots against all the others. He wants to bring Alex to Seth to create the exterminator of gods and kill all those who are not sympathetic to him. Obviously, as we can all imagine, this is not Alex’s will.

Now, what remains to me and to you to do is to read the fifth and last book and see how this stunning series ends.

To the next time,

Miriam.

Elixir - Covenant series #3.5 by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hi everyone,

another book I read in a very short time, in this case a couple of hours, in these past few days is Elixir, # 3.5 of the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I must tell you that this review is not in collaboration with any publisher, I do it because I want you to know my opinion on these books, because if you read the reviews of the previous three volumes you will know that the first did not attract me much but from the second on it was a whole other story.

This is not properly a book, but rather a long enough novella, 90-100 pages. Everything is told from Aiden’s point of view.

Alex underwent her transformation and was imprisoned to avoid meeting with Seth thus giving life to the exterminator of Gods. Keep her locked up for Aiden is a real torture, we all know how much he loves her, and even if he does not give up in front of the cruel words and threats of Alex, it breaks his heart to see her like that.

At some point they decide, together with Apollo, that the only solution left to him is to give her the Elixir which is given to the half-bloods to make them docile, but that does not work either, because with the elixir she forgets everything, and even if she remembers her love for Aiden, he wants to save her by making her understand that she is good, and not ordering her.

Thus interrupts the administration of the elixir, and cuts off all communication with Apollo. He talks to Alex, tries to make her remember their love, and sometimes he succeeds.

Aiden will never lose hope, because he knows that their love is stronger than everyone.

Reading a story entirely from Aiden’s point of view was spectacular. I would like to have more of these POVs. I can honestly say that I love more Aiden than Alex at the moment XD

Elixir - Covenant series #3.5 by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Hello everyone,

it can be said that the moment of the publication of the last book of the Throne of Glass saga by Sarah J. Maas is coming, we only need the cover, as the title has been revealed. Kingdome of Ash. As I mentioned some time ago I began my rereading of the whole saga and in a few days I already devoured the first volume, and here I am reviewing it since I have never spoken specifically about this saga.

I invite you to re / read the saga too, and if you do let me know, maybe we can organize a read along, what do you think?

Without wasting more time let’s dive into this review.

This is not the usual story in which the girl must be saved by the fearless prince, but here the girl is an assassin who could very well kill the prince and the whole royal family. The throne of glass proposes something different to the usual story and for this reason the book read itself.

Celaena Sardothien is the most feared assassin in the whole Erilea, but she was stuck and captured by the king who sent her to Endovier at the age of 17, a labor camp from which many enter and nobody comes out alive. Nobody except Celaena. After a year of slavery, the crown prince goes to her. The king has called a compoetitionto find a royal assassin who will serve him for several years before being free. Celaena will be the champion proposed by Prince Dorian.

But at the palace she is forced to hide her true identity because of her fame and her past. Resume training and old habits is not easy, but not everyone hates her at the palace, and it’s thanks to Chaol, the captain of the royal guard, to Dorian and Nehemia, princess of Eyllwe, that she manages to overcome all the challenges without being eliminated.

But something darker is around the castle. Some supernatural creature is killing paladins. Nobody knows what it is. Celaena in the basement meets the ghost of Queen Elena who warns her and tells her that she must win for the good of all.

The plot of the book grows more and more, and it also becomes more and more intriguing to every page that you read. The style of the Maas is overwhelming and has a method of writing all of her own that makes us re-fall in love with every book.
