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 […]
