Review: The Ballad of Aramei by J.A. Redmerski

Check out my review of The Mayfair Moon (The Darkwoods Trilogy #1) Check out my review of Kindred (The Darkwoods Trilogy #2) “Of course, I have not at all forgotten the fact that he is standing here talking to me butt naked. It doesn’t matter one bit that we’ve already seen each other in our birthday suits and that we’ve consummated our relationship; there’s just something uncomfortable about talking to anyone while completely nude. It’s not natural…well, I guess in a sense it sort of is, but I easily keep my eyes looking at everything above his waist.” “No father. No mother. But I don’t need them because I have a real family now and they fill every part of me that ever wanted to feel human love and experience human life. Adria completes me. We complete each other. It was fate that we met, both parentless and broken and confused. We both lived very different, yet very similar lives and we fell in love fast because we were meant to be together, because destiny pulled our lives every which way to make sure that our paths crossed. And when they did, the rest just fell into place.” I have loved the two previous novels in this series, so I had to see how it ended! Wow…this book is so jammed packed with action that I am in a state […]

Review: Kindred by J.A. Redmerski

Check out my review of The Mayfair Moon (The Darkwoods Trilogy #1) Favorite Quote(s): “I hate fear. It’s just another form of death.” Favorite Character: Isaac. First Line: “Three months ago–March I run until my feet bleed, until I can no longer feel the pain of every searing cut and nerve-ending exposed to debris and freezing snow that burns like fire.” My Musings: Going into book two in the Darkwoods Trilogy, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The synopsis didn’t do much in hinting me in on what was to come, so I was completely blown away. “Adria, the only girl I’ve ever truly fucking loved is a Charge? Her life has been predetermined for her? She was meant to fulfill some asinine destiny, which we all learned almost always ends in some premature death. I want to ask how it can get any worse, but I’m afraid it will.” Lets just say that a lot of pivotal things happen in this novel. We find out about what really happened that night that Isaac and Adria were attacked, a new type of being comes into play, and Adria’s life is changed forever. There was never something not going on. It was a completely engaging novel, and I loved it. “‘I love you because you’re extraordinary. You have all of the things I respect about a person wrapped up in one package, while every […]

Review: The Mayfair Moon by J.A. Redmerski

Check out my review of The Mayfair Moon (The Darkwoods Trilogy #1) Check out my review of Kindred (The Darkwoods Trilogy #2) Favorite Quote(s): “And I thought that maybe I wasn’t so different after all. Everyone has their own troubles, their own battles to fight. Everyone eventually faces darkness and hardship. Mine was just a little out of the ordinary and I could live with that.” Favorite Character: Adria. First Line: “No one used the F-word more than my step-dad, Jeff.” My Musings: I’ve read J.A. Redmerski’s published novels, The Edge of Always and The Edge of Never, and I loved her writing style. So when I saw The Mayfair Moon on Amazon, I had to one-click. I was interested to see what J.A could do with paranormal. “His whole body jerked forward, plunging him into the frigid, white ground. He was on his hands and knees, his head rolled up and backward, the whites of his eyes churning black. The first fiendish growl ripped through the air, echoing off every looming tree.” The Mayfair Moon‘s paranormal creature of choice is werewolves. However, they are not werewolves as we think of them. Instead, J.A’s werewolves changed into half-human, half-beast creatures. At first, I was shocked and a bit grossed out, but that feeling eventually passed. The Mayfair Moon was a very interesting novel. It follows Adria as she starts her […]

Review: The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

Check out my review of The Edge of Never (The Edge of Never #1) Favorite Quote(s): “I guess sometimes the greatest memories are made in the most unlikely of places, further proof that spontaneity is more rewarding than a meticulously planned life.” Favorite Character: Cam…He’s like “a philosopher with tattoos.” First Line: “A few months ago, when I was laid up in that hospital bed, I didn’t think I’d be alive today much less be expecting a baby and engaged to an angel with a dirty mouth.” My Musings: When I found out that there was a sequel to The Edge of Never, I was too excited. I couldn’t wait to see what would become of Andrew and Cam after how the last novel ended. They had a ton of new surprises, and I couldn’t wait to see how they dealt with them. This novel was long. And that wasn’t necessarily a good thing. Unfortunately, this novel seemed very drawn out. There wasn’t a super strong plot, more like a few plots smushed into one big book. This made it harder to read and harder to stay invested in, which was pretty disappointing. The characters, however, were amazing. Cam and Andrew really changed over the course of the novel. They had to deal with some pretty tough stuff, but they were able to find solace in each other. We really see a […]

Review: The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski

Favorite Quote(s): “The heart always wins out over the mind. The heart, although reckless and suicidal and a masochist all on its own, always gets its way. The mind may be what’s best, but I don’t give a shit what my mind is telling me anymore. Right now, I just want to live in the moment.” “It’s a blatant fact: Andrew Parrish and I were mean to meet on that bus in Kansas.” Favorite Character: Cam. Loved her. First Line: “Natalie had been twirling that same lock of hair for the past ten minutes and it’s starting to drive me nuts.” My Musings: When I saw this book on Netgalley, I just had to request it. I had heard all the hype about how fantastic of a novel it was. I wanted to see for myself. I went into this novel with high expectations. Luckily, The Edge of Never pulled through. The Edge of Never follows Camryn “Cam” Bennett as she leaves her hometown and boards a Greyhound bus to nowhere—literally. Cam has no idea where she’s going; she bought her ticket to Idaho based solely on the fact that the ticket lady was eating a potato. But that doesn’t matter—she just wanted to escape from everything at home. Eventually, Cam’s bus path intersects with that of Andrew Parrish. Andrew was like no one that Cam had ever met. He […]
