breaking skyGoodreads/Amazon/B&N/iBooks

synIn this high-flying, adrenaline-fueled debut thriller, America’s best hope is the elite teen fighter pilots of the United Star Academy

Chase Harcourt, call sign “Nyx,” is one of only two pilots chosen to fly the experimental “Streaker” jets at the junior Air Force Academy in the year 2048. She’s tough and impulsive with lightning-fast reactions, but few know the pain and loneliness of her past or the dark secret about her father. All anyone cares about is that Chase aces the upcoming Streaker trials, proving the prototype jet can knock the enemy out of the sky.

But as the world tilts toward war, Chase cracks open a military secret. There’s a third Streaker jet, whose young hotshot pilot, Tristan, can match her on the ground and in the clouds. Chase doesn’t play well with others, but to save her country she may just have to put her life in the hands of the competition.

READ THIS BOOK IF: 

  • You like ballsy heroines with a devil may care attitude
  • You love rollercoaster rides, ups, downs, adrenaline rushes. Total exhilaration
  • You’re looking for a book about so much more than a love triangle, that actually features the triangular things

I love this book. LOVE. I can’t remember the last time-no wait, I totally can-that I felt such a strong connection to the protagonist. There are hundreds of reasons why this will likely be one of the best books I’ll read all year but here are a few: 

Chase (call sign Nyx) is an inspiration and way easy to identify with. She’s confident, fierce, a risk taker, caught up in her goals, and a bit of a free spirit. People look up to her, want to know her, but she’s driven by the need to be the best at what she does. She knows what’s at stake, i.e. the world, and doesn’t have time for pesky things like emotions. Now you may be thinking, isn’t that a bad thing, shouldn’t we look down on Chase (Nyx) for that?

A big resounding no. I’ve never seen a character so free with her choices. She has casual relationships and is in it for enjoyment without taking it to the next level. Chase likes to have fun, she digs making out and she shouldn’t be shamed for it. However, deep inside, Chase (Nyx) is confused and hurt. When it comes to love, she has put up walls and is uncertain of how much she has left to give of her heart. She’s closed herself off from almost everyone, except her commander and best friend, Pippin ❤ and runs when things get too intimate. She’s not about the feels. Of course this has to do with her past and the horrible rejection she felt from her father throughout her childhood. Chase sometimes comes off as self-absorbed and cold, but really she’s oblivious to others because she’s had to rely on herself. 

Chase does what no one else will. She makes rash decisions; she fights for the truth, and pushes herself to the limit, taking the Air Force tech to new levels. Chase is spunky, courageous, and sarcastic. 

Friendships aren’t always easy. Sometimes, the people you think you know best turn out to be strangers or too scared to express themselves to the people that matter the most. Pippin and Chase are wonderful, real, and while sometimes their cold shoulders were a little annoying, the love is out of this world.

That one scene. Rip my heart into tiny pieces, throw so gasoline on it, toss a match and roast some marshmallows over it, why don’t you?

Tristan and Chase. Finally, finally a couple that isn’t ONLY about sexual tension. While there’s a ton of that don’t get me wrong, holy hotness, but Chase and Tristan trust each other. They go to each other when they need to vent and can say things to one another that help them grow as people. They share and they appreciate the other person whole-heartedly. And they aren’t afraid to call each other out on their b.s. 

Each character, no matter how small, has a back-story and distinct personality. All of them are complex. 

The story is a rush. The flying, the fear, the chase. Every second in the air will fill you with anxiety and excitement.

ARC Review: Torn Sky-Tracy Banghart

TornSky_585wGoodreads/Amazon

cooltext1889161239 copyThe end is near . . .

When Aris Haan brought down Safara’s biggest war criminal, she’d thought it was a turning point in the war. Victory was on the horizon, as was a peaceful future with her Promised, Milek.

But a deadly new threat has emerged: a Safaran bomb that could wipe out all of Atalanta in one catastrophic blast. Aris is tasked with finding the weapon before it is completed, a mission made more difficult when she starts to suspect that there is a Safaran spy in her unit. Friendships are tested, loyalties are strained, and suddenly Aris no longer knows whom she can trust.

In the epic conclusion to the Rebel Wing series, Atalanta’s fate rests on Aris’s shoulders. Can she find the bomb before it destroys everything—and everyone—she loves?

+++Contains triggers: Violence, torture

Torn Sky is an action-packed, anxiety-inducing conclusion to the Rebel Wing series. Full of shocking moments, epic battles, and heartache, Torn Sky is irresistable.

PROS:

  • I didn’t think it was possible to love Aris and Milek more than I already did but they’re incredibly adorable together. The chemistry has evolved into a blissful warmth and complete acceptance of each other. They’re playful and sweet, and a little feisty. Their connection has solidified into a beautiful forever kind of love. 
  • The violence is graphic and sickening, the emotions poignant and occasionally overwhelming. The pain of watching someone you love suffer, it’s excruciating. You can feel every tear, every punch, every slice of the knife deep in your heart. This might be too intense for some readers, hence the trigger warning.
  • Adrenaline is high, edge of your seat, trembling in your boots kind of anxious uncertainty. The future is unstable and the price higher than ever before. From the very first few pages there are surprises around every corner. Some of your favorite characters might not make it to the end. The shock is raw and brutal, scenes move fast and so much happens in a short span of time that the book feels too short.
  • Dysis plays a prominent role. The inner workings of her mind are clear and torn. Despite her pain and suffering, Dysis refuses to be beaten. She’s fierce, loyal, and a total BA heroine. You see a softer, more feminine side coupled with her dominance and it’s heartwarming to experience. Her budding romance is just what I was hoping for after the last book. Everyone deserves a happy ending. Also, crazy hot chemistry.
  • The harrowing effects of PTSD made Pallas’ life more of a waking nightmare than an unstable reality. Pallas is a complex, heartbreaking character.
  • The final fight scene. Seriously, anxiety for days. I was an anxious, terrified mess. Talk about down to the wire.
  • The ending was bittersweet and reminiscent of Les Miserables “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”.

CONS:

  • The POVs flipped so often that I felt like there wasn’t enough of each character. I would have loved more of Aris and Milek together. Or Aris at all. And maybe a masculine perspective. The POVs alternate between Pallas, Aris, Dysis, and Galena.

Review: An Ember in the Ashes-Sabaa Tahir

Created of sinless, smokeless fire. They rode the winds and read the stars, and their beauty was the beauty of wild places.

***

‘There are two kinds of guilt,’ I say softly. ‘The kind that’s a burden and the kind that gives you purpose. Let your guilt be your fuel. Let it remind you of who you want to be. Draw a line in your mind. Never cross it again. You have a soul. It’s damaged, but it’s there. Don’t let them take it from you, Elias.’

***

‘Fear can be good, Laia. It can keep you alive. But don’t let it control you. Don’t let it sow doubts within you. When the fear takes over, use the only thing more powerful, more indestructible, to fight it: your spirit. Your heart.’

cooltext1889161239 copyLaia is a slave.

Elias is a soldier.

Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

+++Contains triggers: Graphic violence, abuse.

An Ember in the Ashes is a dark and brilliant tale of passion and perseverance. An intricate world of military aggression, scholarly downfall, and rebellion mixed with creatures of legend, there’s something for everyone. 

PROS:

  • The Masks and the Commandant are sadistic, despicable entities. They torture and revel in pain. Some parts are extremely graphic and gruesome. Blood and gore, danger, fear are all heady and dizzying realities. The slaves live in a perpetual state of uncertainty and hopelessness. The military state is oppressive and violent. They take and deal out pain on whim and don’t flinch when taking lives. People are worthless to them, especially Scholars. They’re to be used and discarded without thought. 
  • The An Ember in the Ashes world is complex and gritty. Torn between duty and survival, characters vary between brainwashed to vigilante. The life of a slave girl is worlds away from the grueling trials Masks suffer, and yet none have freedom, none have escaped pain, torment, and loss. Everyone has the weight of the Empire on their soul. 
  • Magic and mystery add another dimension to the plot. The Augers, the startling truth of the Scholar downfall, and the resurgence of mystical creatures adds a smoky, sinister mood to the story, one that brings foreboding, mischief, and dire circumstances. The creatures in the Trials are beings of myth and fairy tales. It’s kind of ironic that in order to prevail, the Masks, who have discarded the Tribal folks and the Scholars must rely on the swirling words of legend to survive. 
  • Laia is a frightened little bird who shoulders the greatness of her parents without hope of ever living up to their bravery. Laia doubts herself. Living in the shadows of her parents memory, the prowess of her brother, and the gentle hands of her grandparents, Laia can’t fathom coming close to their courage. They’d risked everything, suffered months of torture for a cause that Laia in unworthy (in her eyes) to be a part of. Laia has never had to make life or death decisions and when it counts, her failure cripples her. Laia grows and learns that she is enough. Listening to her brother’s voice in her head, Laia finds the fire within herself to fight, to sacrifice, and to risk, consequences be damned. Laia’s bravery is long coming and fierce. She prevails where others cannot. 
  • Elias hates his life. He’s too aware of the injustices of the Masks and the whole Empire. He can’t live with the notion of hurting others, of being so careless with lives just because he’s skilled with a sword. All Elias wants is to escape his heritage and his fate but his choices are robbed from him. Elias feels lost and lonely. His soul is in jeopardy. Elias is powerful, sexy, and compassionate. Where others resign themselves to the cruelty of the world, Elias interferes. He loves and he hurts along with those who suffer. His heart, his ability to feel so deeply are his burden to bear. 
  • The romance is compelling, eye-opening, and raw. Each pairing has something tragic and beautiful about it. The heat is slow simmering, bold and honest. 

CONS:

  • After the initial brutally graphic and horrific raid scene, the story takes a while to pick up. The danger is hot and heavy, but some scenes, particularly Elias’ parts at Blackcliff were hard to get through. 
  • Laia’s trust in the Rebellion group is hard to understand. It’s dire and out of necessity, however, she barely questions and puts faith in the very group that got her family slaughtered. Furthermore, when things start to get extremely suspicious, she brushes it off, only half-heartedly asking questions once or twice. Laia is hardly a pushover, she grows exponentially throughout the story, she’s insanely brave and yet, when it comes down to asking the hard questions, she’s a little oblivious and cowardly. 
  • Big, intense truths were revealed one after the other near the end of the story. On top of the precarious situations and adrenaline rush of the trials, these snippets of story are sucker punches. They hit hard and are a bit overwhelming. The shock is there, full throttle.

Review: Broken Lies-Claire Vale

24644898Goodreads/Amazon

cooltext1889161239 copyScientists predicted it would take seventy years for the Arctic Shelf to completely melt. In the end, it took less than five. We lost thirty percent of our land to the oceans and a big chunk of our structure to panic and anarchy.

The Melt crippled us.

But it was the Arctic Virus at the bottom of The Melt, trapped for millennia in the darkest depths of ice strata, that broke us. The real flood was the Living Corpses. A population of billions turned to soulless, rabid shells within months. That’s what washed away the human race as we know it.

Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen’s Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival.

Lake’s future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages and then there’s Ash—her best friend and hopefully more. Things could be worse, considering she’s living past the end of days. And, sometimes, she could definitely do with being a better person, which was what drafting into the Guard for two years of service was supposed to be about.

But she has no idea what she’s signed up for. The city is more vulnerable than she’d ever imagined, on its knees at the mercy of a megalomaniac organisation, and she’s just been chosen to pay the price

cooltext1889171582 copy2.5/5 Stars

***I received this ebook as a gift in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley & Book Enthusiast Promotions. 

PROS:

  • Decisions to join the military are not as catastrophic as typically portrayed in dystopia. Here, it’s a duty and there’s little risk, despite the zombie issue. The zombies are violent, bloodthirsty, and disturbing (when they’re depicted). 
  • The nostalgic memories of Ash and Lake as children are adorably romantic. The emotions are charged and almost whimsical. The natural love is prominent and intoxicating. It’s wonderful seeing it build in these small moments.
  • Friendship saves lives in this story. Ava and Lake are inseparable, they get each other on the deepest levels and will do anything and everything for each other, even if it means running face first into a hungry zombie horde. 

CONS:

  • The plot was slow and didn’t pick up until a good 75% in. Not much happens apart from relationship drama and friendship issues. 
  • The ending almost feels like the beginning, as if the whole first section should have been a novella or prequel before the main event. 
  • Story elements are mashed together and they don’t mesh well. The explanation for The Melt and the Arctic Virus, the role of the military, and the whole history is thrown in haphazardly. A deeper, more in-depth explanation would have prepared the reader for where the story was going. Instead it’s a bunch of puzzle pieces missing a definitive connector. It’s unclear whether this is a zombie story, a military one, a dystopian, the focus was lost.

StormFall_300wGoodreads/Amazon

Storm Fall (Rebel Wing, #2) by Tracy Banghart

Release Date: December 16, 2014

cooltext1843013784 copy
In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive.

Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history.

Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war.

Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . . .

***I received this eARC in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley and Alloy Entertainment

I’ve been a huge fan of Tracy Banghart’s Rebel Wing series since before it was called that. I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of Shattered Veil (now Rebel Wing) when it was first released. I fell in love with this elaborate world made of fierce women, worn torn cities ravaged by manipulation and sadistic leaders, and heady romance. Sometimes a sequel can fall flat, especially after such a brilliant start but Storm Fall brought elements to the story that were only blossoming in Rebel Wing and laid the foundation for even more action, devastation and sacrifice to come. I finished reading about 30 minutes ago and I’m already yearning for the next book.

PROS:

  • Aris is a powerful, courageous character. She stands up for herself and her fellow female officers against adversity and harassment. She has an unwavering moral compass but perhaps what is most compelling and inspiring is her regard for human life. Everyone is precious and deserves a chance to breathe the beauty of the world, to laugh and love even when everything is crashing down in a flurry of gunfire, smoke, and torture. Each time  Aris hits the sky, dancing through the air in her wingjet it’s an exhilarating, freeing experience. Her passion, her thirst to save the injured, to save the world from the darkness of corrupt political leaders is a battle much bigger than her but she doesn’t question her path. Aris risks everything for a brighter, peaceful tomorrow and understands that bloodshed in a necessary, traumatic part of that process. The way she remains in control as enemy fire is raining down on her is remarkable. Aris has come so far from who she was in Rebel Wing, her convictions and protectiveness reign supreme and though she’s conflicted when it comes to her heart, Aris always puts Atalanta’s cause above her own.
  • The suspense is killer. There’s a constant foreboding and sickening danger on each mission. There’s no guarantees of life or saving, everything is precarious and even the main characters may fall prey to a wayward gun or precise target. Tracy Banghart doesn’t sugarcoat war. She presents it as bleak, debilitating and made of decisions that are so heart wrenching and hard you’ll question your humanity. Death can come in the blink of an eye or at the hands of vile torturers. Civilian casualties, POWs, and refugees are all depicted with a stark reality. Banghart gives a face and side to both warring nations, highlighting the grey area between good and evil and the fallacy with charging an entire country for the fault of a small group/dictator.
  • The ending. So many feels erupted in an explosion of terror and elation. The ecstatic tension between characters, the terrifying news of what’s to come, and the staggering loss is overwhelming but in a stunning, deeply satisfying way.
  • Recon and battle scenes are vibrant, action-packed and detailed. It’s almost like playing Call of Duty as the scenes unfold.
  • Milek. I thought I loved him before but now, I realize that was respect and a teensy bit of infatuation. This Milek is worthy of the top spot on my book boyfriend list. His hard exterior, the sharp tones, the way he hold himself with such power and strength. So sexy. His confidence and authority are staggering. He’s in control and gives orders like nobody’s business. Yet, he has a playful side. The disciplinary action was hilarious. He wavers between gruff formality and this endearing charm when he lowers his guard. The way he is with Aris…sigh. He worships her. He sees her for exactly who she is, a take charge, incredibly powerful woman who fights through her fears and throws punches. He doesn’t tell her to be anything she’s not, he simply looks on and falls, hanging on her every word, movement, action. It’s a hot, urgent love that will leave you breathless and eager for more of them.
  • Dysis is back and as lively as ever. The girl is reckless, violent, and acts first but she is definitely a force to be reckoned with and the best friend Aris could ever ask for. Her sections were moving. Seeing her internal conflicts, her pain, and the agony, the bittersweet agony is heartbreaking.
  • Calix is a surprise. He’s had moments of epiphany and understanding that have effectively helped him become an amazing man. The boy who got lost in rules and expectations is gone and in his place is someone willing to put everything on the line for a chance at an apology. He steps up and miraculously doesn’t crumble but excels. 

CONS:

  • A broader look at the militaristic events and agreements between the other countries would have been invaluable. The discussion of aid is brief and the reader can’t form a full picture of the state of the world. It looks as though the war is between two forces and the effects of this carnage are small when in reality, everything is in a delicate balance of give and take, safety and sacrifice for each nation.
  • Galena’s sections were too short for my liking. The huge reunion at the end left so much unsaid and I couldn’t help but feel disappointed. I was out for blood after the nauseating and twisted events in book one.

The Dominion of Atalanta is at war. But for eighteen-year-old Aris, the fighting is nothing more than a distant nightmare, something she watches on news vids from the safety of her idyllic seaside town. Then her boyfriend, Calix, is drafted into the Military, and the nightmare becomes a dangerous reality.

Left behind, Aris has nothing to fill her days. Even flying her wingjet—the thing she loves most, aside from Calix—feels meaningless without him by her side. So when she’s recruited to be a pilot for an elite search-and-rescue unit, she leaps at the chance, hoping she’ll be stationed near Calix. But there’s a catch: She must disguise herself as a man named Aristos. There are no women in the Atalantan Military, and there never will be.

Aris gives up everything to find Calix: her home. Her family. Even her identity. But as the war rages on, Aris discovers she’s fighting for much more than her relationship. With each injured person she rescues and each violent battle she survives, Aris is becoming a true soldier—and the best flyer in the Atalantan Military. She’s determined to save her Dominion . . . or die trying.
