I am a book worm! I just wish I had more time to read. With BookCase.Club you will never be wondering where your next book is coming from. It looks like this month we got a bit more of a thriller theme, which isn’t 100% my cup of tea, but I’ll usually give any book a try for a few chapters. Let’s see what these two are all about.
Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant
“If you are wicked, the messenger will find you.”
The Messenger sees the darkness in human hearts. He sees the evil done: the destructive lies, the cruelty, the bullying, the violence. And if the world does not bring justice to those who do evil, the Messenger will. He offers the wicked a game. If they win, they go free. If they lose, they will live their greatest fear. Either way, their sanity will be challenged.
It is a world of fair but harsh justice. Of retribution and redemption. And mystery. Why was Mara chosen to be the Messenger’s apprentice? What has she done to deserve this terrible fate? She won’t find out until three of the wicked receive justice. And when she does, she will be shattered.
Told through compelling stories that are masterfully intertwined. Messenger of Fear is about the terrible choices that people make in life.
Wow…. Ok, I was NOT expecting to like the sound of this book by the cover, but woah, I’m a little hooked here! That just goes to show you should NEVER judge a book by its cover… Ok, this one is going to the top of the reading pile.
Midnight Theif by Livia Blackburne
Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs. But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he is persistent – and darkly attractive – and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.
Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by the Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defences with remarkable ease. When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Trsitam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival – and vengeance – might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives.
Wow. That sounds pretty gripping! I’m not sure it’s one that would fully entice me, but I’d be willing to give it a try!
BookCase.Club January 2018 – Final Thoughts
I really do love this subscription! Sarah has had me reviewing this for about a year now. It really is quite amazing to have new books to read each and every month! I can definitely drown in a book and when you finally come to the surface after finishing a thrilling tale it can be a little depressing not knowing where to turn next. Thankfully, BookCase.Club has got you covered! Being able to choose your own genera and age gap for the books is a huge bonus! Some book subscriptions will just send you a selection or are only about one type of book. With BookCase.Club you get a wide variety to choose from so you are certain to get books you love each month!
