A Raven's Touch (A Raven's Touch Book 1) by Linda Bloodworth Review.

Wow, this book was great!!!

It had everything that I look for in a good read - action, adventure, danger, and a swoon worthy romance. 

What starts off as quite a slow book certainly develops and picks up speed quickly. While I enjoyed the first few chapters, the story didn't really get going until a few chapters later. By around about a quarter of the way in I was really hooked. 

I loved Justice's character and how she stood up for what she believed in from start to end, while still being scared and worried about the future. She let others help her in her quest as well. This all made the story believable. 

The story is about Justice, who is just an ordinary girl to begin with. She experiences pain in lots of forms throughout the book. Some physical but most mental. At about the half way point she discovers something about herself with her parent's help. This discovery is pretty shocking to her. Her closest friend helps her through this transition and Justice learns that friend is also not all she seems.  

She meets a male character who has secrets and falls in love with him as the book progresses. He falls for her as well. There are tragedies as well, one for minor characters near the beginning and one for Justice in the middle. The male character is with her to help her through her own, personal grief. 

The personal attack is because of a kind of love triangle but it's not the annoying kind of love triangle. We never see the lead male character with the enemy but there are hints that they've been together in the past. The evil character wants the male to choose her but he chooses Justice instead. This inspires most of the hatred. At least in this book. The male character been looking for Justice for years - his soulmate - and he's finally found her. 

We meet about 5 main characters in A Raven's Touch. Justice and her beau, the best friend and her boyfriend, and a helper sent from a different world. Each character was lovable in their own way. 

I also liked the references to Sailor Moon, and the fact the lead male character has the same name as a character in the English dub of that. Sailor Moon also fights for what she believes in, just like Justice. 

I give this book 4 stars because there were a few elements that I would've liked to have seen drawn out but over all I loved this book as it showed real promise and had a unique storyline! I can't wait to read the next book.

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, a belated Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well. The Fifth Letter was my first read of 2017, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't all that I thought it would be but it still held my attention.

I got The Fifth Letter as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.


The Fifth Letter is published on January 24th 2017 but it's is very much an ADULT read! It's is about 4 girls, Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden who were friends at school. They go away to a house for a get together trip in their 30's. The main part of the story is set while the girls are in their 30's. One of them has the idea for them each to write a secret - something they've never told anyone else before but it's kept confidential. Then each one of the girls will read a random secret, and try to work out who it belongs to.

It's  set in Australia, which is a little different as most books I read are set in the USA/th…

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
