Our rating: 4 out of 5 battling stars

Review: This book begins right where the first book Storm of Arranon left off. There’s a whole new world and new characters to meet. We also have the characters from the last book to make this story just as good or maybe even better than the first one. There’s a new evil that comes along with their own story. It was great to see the old characters grow in this book. Erynn’s connection to the planet is incredible. Making it easy for the reader to picture this planet is actually alive. Robynn does an amazing job describing these different worlds that you can almost begin to believe you’ve have actually been there. We will say the romance is a little to light for our taste, especially with all the drama of the new girl in Jaer’s life, there could have been more there. But this does not take away from how good this story is.We had moments we loved Eyrnn’s bravery and moments we couldn’t stand some of her choices. Overall it was nice to see the growth in her. The action in this book is just enough to keep you on your toes. You actually will feel your heart pump a little harder by the end of the story. We can’t wait for the third book to come out.

So get yourself ready to visit two other worlds and read Storm of Arranon Fire and Ice

Wilson Mooney, Almost Eighteen by Gretchen de la O

Story: Abandoned by her mother at the vulnerable age of eight; only to be shipped off to a boarding school in Northern California by her grandparents, Wilson Mooney, is one girl who knows what it’s like to have to grow up way too fast. Now, a month away from turning eighteen and orphaned by the death of her grandparents; she knows exactly what she wants. All it takes is a spontaneous ski trip with her narcissistic roommate to Colorado to make it a reality. When “he” happens to show up at a party in Aspen, Wilson becomes tangled in the powerful emotions of first love, sexual inexperience, and society’s principles. She lives a whirlwind weekend filled with newly discovered boundaries, calloused aches for a family she never had, and all the pressures of keeping their weekend together a secret.

Our rating: 4 out of 5 teaching stars

Review: This story is forbidden love gone good. Okay we will admit at first we had a very hard time dealing with Max being Wilson’s teacher. We don’t care how close in age they are there’s just some lines you shouldn’t cross. But then it happened we began to root for them to be together. Their sneaky moments just melted our hearts and made us fall deeply in love with Max. He can be our teacher any day. This book had it all including the mean spoiled girl you just want to slap. Wilson herself is great. She’s been through so much, but she still manages to brush things off. Her innocent mind and likable characteristics makes you really care for her. The secondary characters are great too and really help the story move along, even the mean girl Cindy. The romance between Max and Wilson is a bit rush, but at the same time very believable. Remember as a teenager it didn’t take you long to fall in love. This book will keep you up at night with thoughts of Max. He’s just yummy. This book is a good beginning to what looks to be a great series. We can’t wait to read the next book. We have to find out what will happen between Max and Wilson.

So sit by the fire and read Wilson Mooney, Almost eighteen.

Lysandra Brooks remembers everything about the day she almost drowned alongside her grandma, especially the set of mysterious eyes she saw at the bottom of the lake. Ever since then, she’s been seeing strange things when she is near water—things that aren’t really there. Because of it, Lysandra has the tendency to avoid anything that isn’t on dry land. On her last day of high school, however, the biggest party of the year is set to take place at a fellow senior’s lakeside mansion. Despite her fears, Lysandra decides to prove to her friends and herself that she can handle it.
 
But after a horrific night of drinking and drama that leaves Lysandra feeling lonely and confused, she nearly drowns for a second time, only to be saved by the new guy in town. From that moment on, Lysandra’s world is turned upside down with the discovery of mind blowing secrets, including a revelation that something sinister is after her soul.
