Book Title: The Embers We Seek (A Rebel Princess Serial, #3) wren3

Book Author: Acacia K. Parker

Rating: 5 Dragon Paws 5-paws

I loved the reunion and I bet my bestie Laura was thinking thoughts that I can’t write down lol

We learn what happened to Wren’s mother and more about the sexy soldier that Wren keeps thinking about. It’s nice to see Mor back. For such short chapters, it’s amazing how much Acacia is able to show in them. Props to the author.

I’d say this series will be good for 18+.  Yeah. Why?

A thank you to fifth day bloggers of the #booktour for #thescentedbones @shanannigans81

Didi had a makeover on her site! I didn’t recognize it at first!

“I love the grandma, she’s my favorite character. Angelina Kerner did a great job with this little gem. It’s set up very well to write several more case files! As many as she want’s really.” Didi

Thank you for a great review! I read it before physical therapy and it helped me get through the physical exercises! Haha.



Touch My Spine Book Reviews (Review)

“The characters were great in all the necessary ways and they worked well with their action roles, keeping you on the edge of your seat. When you usually read a short novel, you are in despair because of the one dimensional characters and an ending that is too quick for anyone’s tastes but Ms. Kerner pulls it off magnificently and always manages to leave me craving for more!” – Dani

Dani’s posts have always a little extra and she did a super job with this review post. You guys can meet the Don’s and some of the main characters along with her beautifully crafted review.



J Bronder Book Reviews (Review)
Thank you, Jessica! Like so much! Whoooo hoooo! I earned 5 stars from Jessica! *breathes in and out* Okay! I’m good.
“I love Angelina Kerner’s writing; it is so descriptive that you just find yourself fully immersed in this world. This is not your normal paranormal creatures and world but that just makes it even better. You will find action, adventure, murder, and a beautiful yet deadly world.” – Jessica
I’m like blushing right now. Yikes! I just saw the comments on the post and me being quick with the next book…umm I’ll try my best. I have written 5 chapters so far….. Don’t send zombies after me! lol
Let’s see, Jessica has read Deity’s Soulmate – 4 stars. Follow the Snowflakes – 5 stars! I’m feeling really good right now.
Jessica likes cats so I’m hooking her up with a dragon that is staring at a cat!

★★★★★-This was such a great story –
“This was such a great story. We get to see a young girl who isn’t inhibited by her handicap. Even though she is blind, she is a fiery heroine who takes it all in and makes the best of it. Angelina Kerner did a great job describing Chanel and how she uses her other senses. and Leon is just the best. I absolutely loved him.”
-Jill, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★-This is an interesting concept for a book –
“This is a 3 1/2 stars
This is an interesting concept for a book . Chanel has been blind since birth but that hasn’t stopped her from doing her best at all she does . Even when she starts taking an experimental treatment . She has to take a pill every seven hours to see if it will bring back her sight . Then the one day she is attacked by the paparazzi about her father’s political views. Her parents decide that her being a senators daughter she needs a body guard . When they meet they don’t like each other very much . Will they survive to realize that they love each other and will Chanel’s eye sight come back .
This book is a good young adult read . The author does a great job describing the world of the blind . The characters are sweet and well written but there were a couple of times that I just couldn’t connect with the main characters . Chanel and Leon are characters that you will love or hate . . She al is independent and is not unfamiliar with nail salons, museums , going bowling and having fun . She is tough but also a little sheltered . Leon is the strong silent type. He is sexy and loves books . They are the perfect match .
The author does take us on a journey of how it is to be blind since birth and what a person would be like . The author does a great job in that aspect of the book . The story between Leon and Chanel was good but there were times where it kind of felt a little clumsy . Maybe I just didn’t connect with them as much as I should . Over all I enjoyed the story and will read more from this author .”
-Patricia, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★-A struggle –
“I’m really struggling with how to word my review for this novella. I like the story and thought it was interesting, I cared about the characters and wanted to know what was going to happen to them.
I think the author did a nice job of describing what it is like for someone who is blind. There were a few moments that seemed disjointed and clumsy. The phrasing and word choice used had reading through sentences or paragraphs to make sure I was understanding what the author was trying to convey.
The story moves along at a brisk pace, I read it in one sitting. There are story elements that are brought in that aren’t really explored or they are dropped all together. I would like to have seen these storyline threads explored more.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more from this author..”
-Kristine (A Cozy Booknook) , Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★-I love that this book shows her capabilities more than her limits. –
I love that this book shows her capabilities more than her limits.
So much beauty in reading about a young woman who accomplishes so much. That she had extra struggle to do so is almost dimmed by her capacity to overcome. Yet better understanding the work and patience it took her to do so is amazing. Sweet love story with hope to brighter days ahead.”
-Staci, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★-A great story with an interesting twist.–
“A great story with an interesting twist. As you read the book you find out things you don’t know about the characters. The story definitely draws you in and makes you want to see how everything turns out. A must read!!!”
-Teri Ditchman, Goodreads Reviewer


During the novel week, Deity’s Soulmate got a couple of awesome reviews!

★★★★-Very interesting take on Greek mythology–
“Very interesting take on Greek mythology and nice twist to make it into something new. I’ve read a few books by this author and she’s great at making you feel like you’re right there in the story. Very descriptive and interesting. Would love to read more about this.”
-Jill, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★-This is a hard one to rate/review–
“This is a hard one to rate/review. I liked the story. I liked the tasks Gardenia needed to complete and the dragons and the Gods/Goddesses and Greek Mythology. I do think this story was kind of all over the place. Things came too easy for Garden it seemed. She was a little selfish, arrogant, and petty. She calls her family liars and greedy among other things. To give her the benefit of the doubt she grew up the same way somewhat. Yes, she is a little different but she’s shown the same traits in the book. I liked her but not all that much. I did feel for her because she was singled out because she thought a little different. She’s young but isn’t a child but surely acted like it at times. There was an abundance of telling in this book but not necessarily showing the readers much. Garden has to get through 13 days and she’s mastered a slow 4. So, obviously each book will be 4 days. These dragons’ personalities took me awhile to understand and like. They grew on me though. I think I would like to read book 2 at some point..”
-Monica, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★-Overall rating: 4–
“An interesting look into the education of gods and goddesses as well as their creations. The main character, Gardenia, plays a spoiled youngster to a tee. She is exhausting but I do realize she is exactly as this author wants her to be. Having her reach out to dragons for assistance opened up many questions for me, which in turn kept me reading. This book is entertaining and can be read in an afternoon..”
-Patti, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★-One of my all-time favorite perspective on the old Gods. –
“What better than the rebellious youngster to stir the plot. So many old stories told of monumental feats. Yet here is a fresh new start. A love story combined with just what the egotistical hierarchy needed.”
-Staci, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★-I loved this book.–
“I loved this book. I have read a few of the other books by this author and decided to take a chance on this one. I couldn’t put it down. Written well and the story flows and does a very good job of explaining the Gods and Goddesses in the story and their relationship to each other. Also includes a very cool and different love story. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!”
-Teri Ditchman, Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★-I was actually surprised that I enjoyed reading this story as much as I did–
“I was actually surprised that I enjoyed reading this story as much as I did.
Gardenia has been punished by Zeus to do a 13 day creational lesson that will take her a century to complete. Instead of choosing among her family for her teachers, she chooses to seek out the first race, the dragons.
By the end of this story, Gardenia has completed 4 days of her lessons.
Found her soulmate, a dragon nonetheless and not everyone is happy that the universe would bless a union between enemies.
Now she’s got to hide out among her new mates race because the Fates have a plan brewing that puts Gardenia right in the middle of a war.
I can’t believe this story ended the way it did. But I can see the need, because from the looks of things, there’s going to be so much going on and a new war between the Gods/Goddesses and Dragons as well as the Fates plans that it would make for a L A R G E book. I can’t wait until the second one releases. .”

A Big thank you to Kelli, who was in charge of the event!

Kelli is amazing. She’s always on top of things and is able to manage more than 50 authors at once PLUS readers. I was part of her roundups twice and look forward to working with her in the future. If you’re looking for a book promoter on Facebook, she’s your gal!
