Easily Another 5 Stars for this Final Book in the Trilogy By Backstage Blogs
This review is from Recombined (Irrevocable Series Book 3)
I always find it difficult to write reviews for books deeper in series/trilogies because I absolutely do not want to giveaway any spoilers to earlier books in the series.
This trilogy grabbed me in ways that I absolutely did not expect it to – which is a high compliment from me. From the beginning, you know that the theme of this trilogy is apocalyptic, which isn’t usually a genre I seek out, but I enjoy this author and her versatility a lot, so decided to be open minded about it. As would be expected in the final book of such a trilogy, there is an end of days scenario, but it plays out in a spine-tingling realistic way. It certainly made me think between the releases, and more surprisingly, long after I had read the last page.
Perhaps because this is not a favored genre of mine, I found the plot to have many unexpected twists and turns, but I honestly feel that credit goes directly to Ms. Jacobey rather than lack of familiarity. Regardless of the source, I absolutely loved every one of the twists and turns, and the depth of all the characters, especially those who showed surprising change and/or growth.

CANNON’S & HARVEY’S I LOVE THEE By Tracy Arnett
This review is from Broken: Book One of the M Series (Kindle Edition)
This book was suggested by a friend of mine, and I want to get down on my hands and knees and kiss his feet. Ryanne Anthony is an amazing author that needs to be read. Broken was an amazing book it had me laughing to where tears were falling down my face to a point in the book I was sobbing because it touched me so deeply. Ryanne is the type of author that has you sitting right next to the characters in the book, and you walk their path in life with them. When I finished this book, I felt a loss for the characters have loved and learned about. I wanted to read more, and luckily I can read on in Mariah the next book in this series. I am a huge fan now, and I can’t wait to start reading more about this amazing cast of characters.
This book is about two merged families the Cannons and the Harvey’s as they are all pulled into a therapy session with Victoria Fields to save the marriage of Joshua and Mandy Cannon, but as the session moves on, we learn much more. Secrets will be revealed can the families remain whole or will these secrets destroy them. This a must read and one book that will hit my go to on those days when I need a lift. I loved learning about their lives and cannot wait to continue their journey and learning more about them. The Cannon’s and The Harvey’s are now part of my family, and I love every single one of them. Does this book deserve 5 stars? No, it deserves 10++++ I loved this book and I will forever rave about Ryanne and her amazing talent as a writer.
Mystical tones…a touch of the allegorical By Dodester
This review is from: The Choosing: From The Memory Keepers (Kindle Edition)
The Choosing is a story with interesting mystical tones and a touch of the allegorical. It speaks to the harmony that must exist between people and the gods for the bounty on earth to be renewable. The passages that portray rituals used to honor the earth and its gifts were memorable to me.
Strength and vitality are prominent traits in the main character. Mondoani is no ordinary girl; she has been chosen by the gods to be the tribe’s new Memory Keeper when their Old Mother dies. The Memory Keeper plays a most significant role in the tribe. She is the conduit who is entrusted to intercede with the gods for a tribe’s survival: to ensure safe passage to the place where food, water, and safety are assured. This task is daunting for Mondoani, fraught with fears that there will not be enough time for her to gain enough knowledge necessary to keep the tribe safe from famine and death. Mondoani, however, never wavers from tackling the immense responsibilities given her at such a young age. The author wove her words carefully, finding some balance in tone between Mondoani’s worry and confidence, her fears, and courage.
The last few chapters offer an unusual twist to the story. The ceremony to choose an apprentice for Mondoani was dramatic, with surprising revelations involving various gods intermingling with the tribe. If you enjoy allegorical stories, this one will appeal.
