Blog Tour: Anomaly by K.A. Tucker

Check out my review of Anathema (Casual Enchantment #1) Check out my review of Asylum (Casual Enchantment #2) Check out my review of Allegiance (Casual Enchantment #3) I have read and adored the previous novels in this series and I couldn’t wait to see how K.A. Tucker finished off the series. I’ve been waiting for this book for a while! This novel was definitely the most eventful and thrilling of the series. Everything in this novel comes down to a boil–the fight with the Fates, the fight with Viggo, and the fight against the sorceresses. There’s destruction, hard decisions, betrayals, lies, deceit, kidnapping–basically everything under the sun. But oddly, it wasn’t overwhelming. Usually, when an author smushes this much action into a single novel, it seems rushed and confusing–not such the case with this novel. Everything flowed, and for the most part, everything that happened was understandable. The only part that I wished I would have known more about was the part with the Fates. That, I’ll have to admit, could have been expanded on a bit more. Evangeline finally matures in this novel. Not that she was immature, it’s just that she grows out of her naive mindset. She finds out that not everyone is to be trusted, and that you can only depend on certain people to do you right. She also spends this novel adjusting to her […]

Review: Asylum by K.A. Tucker

Check out my review of Anathema (Casual Enchantment #1) Favorite Quote(s): “Our eyes locked. I saw Caden’s eyes. The stunning green eyes I remembered, the eyes I thought I had lost forever. In that one look, eyery ounce of doubt, every moment of fear, every horrific memory washed away.” Favorite Character: Caden again! First Line: “‘Forgive me,’ I whispered, knowing my words would never reach her ears.” My Musings: Asylum was a great new installment in the Casual Enchantment series. In this novel, we learn more about the vampires, the curse, and the fate of the Earth. This novel, like the previous one, was a great and easy read. The writing itself was descriptive and enabled me to live the story through the eyes of Evangeline. The plot never failed to be entertaining, and there were twists and turns that I was not personally expecting! In this novel, we’re introduced to some new characters, including Julian, and we learn more about characters that were not as prevelant in the previous novel. I enjoyed learning more background information to the whole ordeal, and it enabled me to more fully understand what was going on plot wise. In this novel, the plot continues to tangle and thicken, and it was enjoyable through and through. Something I enjoyed a lot within this novel was the continuation of world building. We learned more and more […]

Review: Anathema by K.A. Tucker

Favorite Quote(s): “Caden, kneeling beside me, gripped my face and gave me a peck on the lips. ‘I love you,’ he whispered.” Favorite Character: I really liked Caden. He seems super sweet! First Line: “‘Trust me,’ Sophie whispered. her delicate hands sliding up Nathan’s chest to slip behind his neck.” My Musings: Anathema was not what I was expecting. I am usually weary in trying out self published novels. However, this one was one of the best that I’ve read! The cover of the novel is interesting, and that is what drew me to the novel in the first place. Although I’m still somewhat confused as to the flower that the girl is in on the cover, it did not matter much to me. Anathema had an interesting plot line. Today, there isn’t much variation in writing in regard to vampires. However, Tucker managed to create a world where vampires are cursed, and earth is..special. I won’t say more, because I don’t want to spoil anything! However, the novel’s plot was great. It was full of adventure as we followed Evangeline on her trek through worlds. Evangeline was a cool character. She wasn’t remarkable, but she wasn’t horrible. She’s trying to do what’s best for everyone. Sophie was sweet. I think she’s misunderstood; she is lonely and she really has a maternal feeling for Evangeline. Caden was a great male […]

Blog Tour: Allegiance by K.A Tucker

Check out my review of Anathema (Casual Enchantment #1) Check out my review of Asylum (Casual Enchantment #2) Favorite Quote(s): “He leaned in that last inch to skim my neck with his bottom lip, hardly touching and yet sending shock waves through me, deep into my belly.” Favorite Character: Caden. He’s that tortured hero that you can’t help but fall in love with! First Line: “A spine chilling crack jerked Imogen’s attention to the center of the atrium.” My Musings: What a thrilling installment! Although I’ll admit that this series so far has not been the best I’ve read, it nonetheless enraptured me into the world of Evangeline. Like the previous two installments, this novel managed to keep me interested the whole time. Tucker’s writing was detailed and descriptive. The characters are well developed, and we get to know some of them better in this novel. Now that Evangeline has gotten the cursed pendant from around her neck–sans the instant death, all should be well for her and her vampire boyfriend, Caden. However, when is the life of Evie ever that simple? The magic that got the pendant off of her neck, of course, came at an unforeseen price–Evie now begins to morph into a creature that could very well be fatal to all whom she touches. The race against time now begins to cure Evie, Julian, and Veronique from this curse […]
