CR-Grimnirs M1



One lost love.


One lost best friend.


One hot soul reaper.

 Grimnirs Huge

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.

The Magnificent Twelve: The Call by Michael Grant Book Review

thecallmaginificent12The Magnificent Twelve: The Call

Mack has issues. His issues begin with his twenty or so phobias and continue with him being named a hero-the only one who can save the world from the Dread Foe.

I laughed out loud at this book. It is a quick read with a quick wit. The reader is invited along on an adventure that doesn’t seem likely to succeed. But it’s such an enjoyable read that you hardly notice that the hero will probably get squashed-either by bullies at his school or the mother of all evil!

This middle grade book is full of great dialog. Mack and the narrator keep the reader entertained. Grimluk’s story is also intertwined well and compliments Mack’s story-providing just what the reader needs to move the plot forward. Not many of the characters have just regular conversations. Humor is woven throughout yet it doesn’t seem contrived. Although there are a few stereotypes, they also have wonderful twists to their personalities and are consistent in all situations. The Golem is cute.

The plot action does move quickly and has many surprises. I could’ve done without all the fragmented sentences, but it doesn’t distract too much. My favorite part is the airplane scene.  Brilliant.

This installment of The Magnificent Twelve takes the reader to Australia. We get a real feel for the landscape without being bogged with too much description.

I enjoyed the first chapter of the second book The Trap. Hope the “Wow” factor can sustain through the series because Mack getting knocked out was starting to get a bit old.

I recommend this for a fun read.

Rating 5/5
