Incubus (Fairwick Chronicles Book 1) by Carole Goodman

Hi ForeverBookers, 

This was a great book. It's got a romantic plot line (which I loved) as well as a darker more mystical plot line as well. The romance doesn't really start until half way through the book but when it does start it's good. 

Callie becomes a teacher at Fairwick College. She had to leave her boyfriend in the city as he hadn't finished his degree. Fairwick is a mystical place though, filled with creatures who aren't human, as well as normal humans. 
Callie has erotic dreams, after she moves there. Dreams that have been given to her by her incubus. 
At first Callie stays in an Inn in Fairwick because she doesn't have anywhere else to stay. But she sees this Victorian house and decides to buy it and live there. There are mysteries that surround the house. 
We get to know a couple of Callie's students and a lot of her colleagues at the college throughout the book. These characters add to the story. I didn't find anyone to be out of place while reading. 
All of Callie's colleagues are a mystery at the beginning of the story until it's revealed that their not quite what they say they are. When they do reveal their true selves Callie is shocked but comes to be friends with most of them. She bonds to one of them a little too much. Callie's students are also a mystery (one in particular). 
The end was interesting as well as a little scary. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Callie and everyone else in the book. The first person perspective really helped here I believe as I was able to see from Callie's point of view throughout the novel.

This book has sexual situations as well as a few swear words scattered throughout so it's not for younger readers. 

I really enjoyed this book. It gets a 4 stars just because some of the chapters weren't needed I feel. The author could have also extended some scenes to make more of them as well. I look forward to reading Water Witch (#2) next...

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…
