A to Z Challenge Book Reviews

My Languishing TBR: E #AtoZChallenge2022 #Books #Bookreview

E is for Emerson

This year I’m taking a break from Faerie and doing an A to Z of my TBR (to be read) list instead. Each letter will have books starting with that letter on my list, a book I’ve read and reviewed (with the review!) and one of my books matching the letter with a link about more info about the book. I’ve decided not to include words like “A”, “The” and “An” during this challenge.

About the Book I’ve Read

I’ve enjoyed this series, stretching it out to last longer. Vi’s story, Calla’s story and the companion books have all been enjoyable.

About the Book

Emerson Clarke: Sarcastic. Independent. Possibly losing her mind.

Because that’s the only explanation for why she occasionally sees things that aren’t there, right? But one night, an impossible power erupts from her, and Em realizes the truth is crazier than she ever thought: she isn’t losing her mind; she’s magical.

Thrown into an entirely new world of faeries, enchantments—and the annoying guy from down the road who, it turns out, isn’t human either—Em barely has time to learn even the most basic of magic before another startling truth reveals itself: she has a Griffin Ability. A special kind of magic feared by most fae. Now she’s at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list—including the mysterious glass faerie carrying out random attacks on fae.

In this magical and terrifying world that she’s entirely unprepared for, Em must try to figure out who she really is, whom to trust, and how to stay alive long enough to get back to her normal life.

Begin a thrilling new adventure as the bestselling Creepy Hollow series continues eighteen years after the events of A Faerie’s Curse!

My Review

So much fun to read!

There are so many twists, antagonists to choose from, and mysteries wrapped up in simple things that the pages just keep turning.

I like that Vi, Ryn, Calla and Chase were all part of this story.

And the end…! I can’t wait to see what happens next – and find out what some of the mysteries mean.

About the Book

Enter the dazzling and deadly world of Unseelie royalty in the penultimate Creepy Hollow book!

Emerson Clarke thought magic might solve all her problems. Turns out, magic only made her life more complicated. Her sick mother is in a worse position than before, and Em just made a risky deal with an Unseelie prince: he will heal her mother if Em agrees to the ultimate alliance—marriage.

With the possibility of finally getting the one thing she’s always wanted, Em enters the dangerous world of the Unseelie Court. She’ll learn whatever she has to about magic and etiquette in order to fake her way through palace life until Prince Roarke fulfills his side of the bargain.

But when someone unexpected shows up, bringing to light the secrets Roarke and his family are keeping from her, Em’s plans begin to unravel. She’ll soon have to decide once and for all: how far is she willing to go to save her mother?

Be prepared for breathtaking magic, twisted plots, a hint of romance, and more shocking revelations!

My Review

A fun, dark read. The Unseelie palace is full of dark and light, things to fear and to enjoy. The best things about the Unseelie palace are the dragons. And I think Aurora isn’t half bad, either.

It was foolish of Emerson to trust the Unseelie prince, but it’s obvious why she chose to do so.

I’m so glad Calla upped her kick-ass powers and did all the things she did in this book.

Emerson’s parkour exercises come in quite handy in this book.

And the Shadow realm is quite awesome – and creepy.

I can’t wait to read the next book.

About the Book

The fae world’s biggest secret has been revealed …

Having escaped an Unseelie prince and a world of shadows, Emerson and Calla are now hunted by the Guild of Guardians. On the run, constantly trying to remain one step ahead, they must figure out how to find and rescue everyone the Guild has taken from them.

Then, in an unprecedented move, Unseelie Prince Roarke breaks the fae realm’s most important rule. Now two worlds stand on the brink of war. Caught in the middle between guardians and Prince Roarke’s forces, Em knows her Griffin Ability is powerful enough to stop them both. But as she masters control of her unique magic, Em is confronted with a question: how far is too far when you possess the kind of power she was born with? Can she step back from the line that shouldn’t be crossed, or will she end up losing herself before finding those she loves?

Join Emerson and her companions in this race to save two worlds and the people they love in the final Creepy Hollow adventure!

My Review

Non-stop action. Failed missions. Betrayals. It got a bit exhausting, so I read it a chapter at a time whenever I could fit it in between doing other stuff. But it’s good: Emerson learns control of her magic, all the mysteries are unveiled, all the bad guys are stopped, all the plot lines are tied up, and Emerson finally gets her HEA.

I do think Aurora needs her own book – or three!

Bandit is an awesome pet and is my favourite part of Emerson’s story.

  1. I’m seeing a theme there with Heather Graham in your TBR pile–you grab her books but leave them for later. I read a few of hers, but something stopped me from reading more. Can’t remember what…
