[Blog Tour | Review | #Giveaway]: The One and Only Crystal Druid by Annette Marie

Title: The One and Only Crystal Druid
Series: The Guild Codex: Unveiled #1
Author: Annette Marie
Published by: Dark Owl Fantasy Inc.
Publication date: September 24, 2021
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

I’m not your average girl.

My best friend is my switchblade. My favorite hobby is using it on the cruel, the abusive, and anyone who gets on my bad side. I’m a convicted murderer with a chip on my shoulder and a dangerous lack of restraint.

And then there’s Zak.

His rap sheet makes mine look tame. The bounty on his head is worth more money than I’ll ever make, and the deadly fae that shadow his every step wield more power than I’ll ever know.

He’s the Crystal Druid, and his first mistake was setting foot on my turf.

His second was saving my life.

And his final mistake will be failing to realize that however dark, however ruthless, however broken he is…

I’m worse.


From the author of the best-selling Guild Codex books comes a new series that delves into the dark, dangerous world of druids and fae alongside two ravaged souls who may be exactly what the other needs…if they don’t destroy each other first.

Unveiled can be read as a standalone series or in conjunction with other Guild Codex series. For the full reading order, visit Annette Marie’s website.

Review

Disclaimer: I received this book at no cost from the publisher/author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I am leaving a voluntary review and all opinions are my own. 

If you have been waiting for Zak's book like the rest of us then hold on to your panties! You're going to want to clear out your schedule before you pick up this titillating piece of literature. Zak is going to own you and I think that Saber is going to own you even more. 

Yes, dear friends, the time has come for us to jump into Zak's story! When I received my copy of this book I have honestly never downloaded a book so fast in my life. I was checking my email right before bedtime and lo and behold, the email with my download link was sitting in my inbox. I think that my heart literally stopped in my chest. After having a small freak-out attack (or so my 13-year-old son says), I downloaded that bad boy and jumped into the story faster than a cranky druid can best his opponent. So, pretty fast. 

While this is technically Zak's series, this book is told from the point of view of a new character, Saber. Saber is Zak's love interest in the story and OH MY GOD she is the character that I never knew I needed. I absolutely loved Saber and I think that other readers are going to fall in love with her just as much as I have. I don't think that I have felt this strongly about a character since I read Holly Black's The Folk of the Air series and Jude Duarte captured my heart. Saber has done much the same. I adore her. She's got that prickly, stabby, 'I'm going to slit your throat' type of personality that ruffles my feathers in all the best ways. On the outside, she is tough as nails but there is so much more lurking under her surface. We get a glimpse into the real Saber that she hides from the rest of the world. Saber has had some truly horrid things happen in her past that have driven her character development in this book. RΓ­kr is Saber's familiar. He is a shapeshifter fae that prefers to take the shape of a cat or a bird. I loved him from the get-go. He is witty, loyal, and a real breath of fresh air. There is some mystery about him that I can't wait to uncover in the next book. And then there is Zak. Though it is very subtle, there is a change in Zak from when we saw him in the Spellbound series. He is not the druid he once was. Things have drastically changed in his life and we get the sense that maybe he wants to change too. At one point, he even asks Saber if she wishes she could be someone else. It really sets the tone for his mood and mindset in this book. If you have read the Spellbound series then you know what Zak has lost and you can imagine how those losses would affect him, his personality, and the way that he approaches things now. While he is still very much the druid that we know, he is also evolving, I think. I am eager to see how he evolves throughout this series. We also get to see some cameos from other characters that we have come to know in the Guild Codex world. I love when other characters make an appearance in this interconnected world. 

If you are familiar with Annette Marie's books, then you know that she is bloody brilliant when it comes to storytelling. Her crafting and plotting are detailed and creative. Her narration is flawless and unmatched. The flow of her stories is natural and smooth. The way that she delivers plot twists is exciting and utterly gripping. The One and Only Crystal Druid is all that and more. 

The sexual tension in this book is like an atomic bomb waiting to go off and I AM HERE FOR IT! Zak and Saber dance around each other with a savagery that is too tantalizing for words. Their banter, their back and forth was the stuff of dreams. I thought that my fangirl heart was going to hammer right out of my chest. There is more to their uneasy relationship than meets the eye though. We are just falling through the rabbit hole right now where Saber and Zak are concerned but I can't wait to reach Wonderland. I predict the most satisfying romances from Annette Marie to date with this couple. Just saying. 

Overall, this is an exceptionally all-consuming story that will leave you in a daze. These characters will dominate your mind, their romance will light your nether regions on fire, and the plot is going to have the gears turning in your head. The cliffhanger at the end of this book is so epically good that I can't even be mad that I have to wait for the next book. The utter brilliance of that ending left me staggering with stars in my eyes and my heart racing faster than the Millennium Falcon. Before you start this book, prepare yourself for the biggest book hangover.

Review

Disclaimer: I received this book at no cost from the publisher/author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I am leaving a voluntary review and all opinions are my own. 

Wow. That's pretty much all my brain will come up with right now. I am in such awe of this book that I don't even know where to start. 

I guess that I will start with craft because Avery Flynn sure knows her craft and knows it well. She can write a story that will reach deep down into you and mess with your wiring. She can dislodge things inside you that you didn't know could be reached. Her writing style is by far one of my favorites. Her writing is so polished and smooth and I fall so hard every single time I pick up one of her books. She is so clever is creating the plots of her stories and so talented at connecting all the dots. Her stories pull you in until you look up and realize that you missed supper and see that it's three in the morning. Her stories will engross you that much and it is worth it every single time. 

One of the things about this book in particular that has me all in a tizzy is that I felt such a deep personal connection to both main characters. I could chalk it up to coincidence that the female main character is a nerdy southern girl like me or that the male main character was a nerdy tattooed heartthrob, a combination that normally flicks all my switches, but it isn't just that the characters had such similarities to me and my preferences. Flynn really knows how to make her readers form a connection to her characters by giving them distinct personalities and excellent character growth. The book is also filled with secondary characters that add so much depth to the story. These are secondary characters that you form a connection with just as much as the main characters. Since many of Flynn's books and series take part in the same world, there are many character crossovers. I really loved the mentions and appearances of some of my favorite Flynn characters from other books. I am also silently wishing that some of the newer secondary characters will eventually get their own stories in Flynn's ever-growing Harbor City world. 

The romance in this book had one of the tropes that I absolutely cannot stand in romance novels. Yep, the dreaded instalove. That said, I still COULD NOT stop reading anyway. That is a testament to Flynn's writing because instalove is usually a hard no for me but she was able to engage me and make me believe in this romance. The hero may have fallen in love with the heroine instantly but he was able to back it up with how perfect she was for him. Not because of her looks, but because of her mind. And it's not like they fall into the sack right away declaring their undying love after just meeting. Griff has to work for it and show Kinsey just how much he cares about her. Instalove aside, Griff and Kinsey had amazing chemistry. It was clear to see that they were truly two peas in a pod. They complimented each other perfectly. 

Overall, this book blindsided me in all the best ways. I am hooked on Flynn's immersive brand of storytelling and I am so stoked for the last book in this series! If you are a romance fan that loves multi-dimensional characters, a compelling plot, and enough humor and steam to balance everything out then this is the book for you! In fact, any Flynn book is for you! Wet your toes with Flynn's unputdownable romcoms and never look back.

Review Tour: Varsity Captain (Varsity #4) by Ginger Scott

 

NOW AVAILABLE
π•π•’π•£π•€π•šπ•₯π•ͺ β„‚𝕒𝕑π•₯π•’π•šπ•Ÿ by Ginger Scott, a new mature YA coming-of-age sports romance, is LIVE! One-Click yours and don’t forget to add it to your TBR!



Title: Varsity Captain
Series: Varsity #4
Author: Ginger Scott
Release Date: October 15, 2021

June Mabee is a lot of things. 
She’s the girl next door.
She’s the best friend I ever had.
She was my first kiss, as awkward as it was.
And she’s the last person I should have feelings for. Ever.
Two years ago, I cut all ties with her because I had no choice. No more late night phone calls, no hellos or goodbyes, not even a passing smile. I left her to wonder what happened to the us we used to be. We were best friends, and then suddenly…we weren’t. And I know it hurt. But the truth would have hurt her more, and being anything with June would have destroyed my family. 
For a while, we managed to exist a hundred feet apart with no connection at all. She changed schools. I kept busy. We existed, apart. But no matter how hard I tried to not think about her, I just couldn’t stay away from the funny, adventurous, steadfast girl with wild green eyes. 
She’s back. We’re seniors now. We’ve grown—all of us. And while I might be different, she’s different too. She takes risks, stands up for herself and doesn’t back down. The more we’re forced together, the more I miss her. But for June to be a part of my story, I need to tell her the whole truth, everything that happened. And I’m not sure any of us are ready for that. 


REVIEW

Disclaimer: I received this book at no cost from the publisher/author. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I am leaving a voluntary review and all opinions are my own. 

When I first read Varsity Heartbreaker I was completely enamored with Lucas Fuller. Varsity Heartbreaker is told from the heroine's point of view but I could tell that there was so much going on behind the scenes when it came to her love interest, Lucas Fuller. I was so delighted when I saw that Ginger Scott had decided to bring us Lucas's point of view. 

I am fairly certain that this book is considered a companion novel though I suppose it could be read all on its own without having read Varsity Heartbreaker. I definitely think that it would be beneficial and more enjoyable if you read Varsity Heartbreaker first though. Since I have read the entire series already, for the purpose of this review I will be reviewing it as a companion novel and not a standalone. 

First of all, I just adore Lucas. He really did have so much on his shoulders and he was trying to make everyone else happy. He sacrificed the one thing that was most important to him, his friendship with his next-door neighbor June, to satisfy his parents and ultimately pay the price for their mistakes. After his father has an affair and his mother heads into a downward spiral because of it, Lucas's life changes. He changes to cope with everything happening in his life and I don't think that he liked the person that he became. He ghosted his best friend and lived the next two years trying to please his parents. His father has been trying to live vicariously through him since he received an injury playing football in college and he pushes Lucas to the extreme in football. Lucas has other dreams though and he struggles with trying to please his dad and hiding his true passion to go to MIT when all his dad wants is for him to go to Tennessee and play football. He is also concerned about his mother's mental state and has been sort of looking out for her since his father's affair. June had switched to a private school but circumstances lead her to return to public school again her senior year. With June so close, Lucas is having trouble keeping his feelings under wraps. Everything in his life culminates and Lucas has to make tough decisions and ultimately decide if he is going to live his life for someone else or for himself. 

I really loved the emotional aspect of the story. It was so easy to slip into Lucas's shoes and feel his torment over the circumstances in his life. The author does an excellent job of making the reader empathize with Lucas. 

This book centers around Lucas, but I would have loved to see more of the other characters as well. Tory is a big part of Lucas's life and while we do get to see a lot of him in this book, his character didn't feel as tangible as Lucas's character. 

I really thought that the plot of the story was orchestrated quite well. All the bits and pieces of the story were just where they needed to be and came together nicely in the end. The author did a great job of creating conflict and mystery. The storytelling is excellent. The story flows perfectly in a steady rhythm that makes the reader feel completely comfortable. I have really love that quality in all of the books that I have read from Ginger Scott. I always know that I am going to get a quality story that is going to tick off all the boxes for me. 

Overall, this was an excellent addition to the series that added a lot of value, especially for Lucas's character. If you are a fan of this series then I highly recommend adding this book to your TBR. If you haven't read the series yet then I would start with Varsity Heartbreaker, the first book in the series. If you are a fan of mature young adult stories with incredible writing and wonderful characters then you'll want to get in on this series!
