Blog Tour: Black Ridge Wolf Pack

Omega's Choice
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 1
by Lilli Carlisle
Genre: Paranormal Romance

In a realm of elves, ogres and white witches, where danger is ever-present, Princess Helena Lichtenberg lost her parents at a young age. Raised by her uncle and aunt, Helena values family above all else. Now, as decreed by tradition, it is time to select a mate.


Enormous, scarred and scary, Black Ridge Wolf Pack leader Aldric Forst has never drawn the eye of any Omega. Why would he? But, on this, the night of what he swears is his last selection celebration, everything is different. One of those most beautiful, magical and powerful women, the niece of the king and queen themselves, wants him. And Aldric has never wanted anything more in return. No force—no matter how dark, no matter how powerful—will take Helena from him.

Ceva's Chance
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 2


If it hadn't been for King Leonidas, white witch Ceva would have roamed the earth alone and ostracized. She was a biological accident, and her heritage was a curse she'd carry around for all her days. Now she fights for her king and kingdom, a fierce warrior on a mission to prove she is worthy of the trust and friendship the king has afforded. When she meets Lothar, captain of the Black Ridge Wolf Pack guard, she glimpses a future she never thought possible. But once he knows her truths, he will surely reject her.


Lothar had never met anyone like Ceva. Beautiful, fierce, protective and loyal, she would make the perfect mate for any man. Lothar wants to be that man, but Ceva remains elusive. Sure, she flirts, and they dance around each other, but Lothar wants more. When his team joins hers on a dangerous mission, he learns her secrets, which makes her more extraordinary, not the pariah she believes she is. But her past is about to catch up with her, and only his love can save them from certain death.

Karli's Resolve
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 3


The Power of Unity
Twenty-five years ago Karli's parents ripped her away from her home and the men she loved. An omega with gifts worthy of only the most special man, her parents refused to allow her to mate with anyone less than a powerful, wealthy alpha. But at a young age Karli had found her forever in Joseph and Rowl's arms, and she knew she could never love anyone else. After a vicious ogre attack decimated the village where her parent's had hidden her, warriors came to save the wounded pack members. Warriors led by Joseph and Rowl.

Although she had seemed to disappear into thin air, Joseph and Rowl never stopped searching for the woman they loved. When Karli was discovered among the ruins of a small village, the fierce warrior captains couldn't believe their eyes. And once they had found her, they were never going to let her go. But dark forces were at work to separate the triad once again, and this time all their lives were on the line.

Laura's Legacy
The Black Ridge Wolf Pack Book 4

While Laura was attending the annual omega celebration, a ruthless ogre attack destroyed her village and wiped out her family. Heartbroken, lonely, and adrift, she was forced to rely on the kindness of the Black Ridge wolf pack alpha for a home. And so were many others, including members of the small Newton pack, and their handsome, strong alpha, Dedric. One brief interlude was all it took for Laura to know she would choose him as her mate.

Alpha Dedric Newton couldn’t believe his good fortune. Beautiful and powerful, Laura was the omega of his dreams. Worried he had so little to offer, he insists she spend time with his small pack as they rebuild their village and homes. Laura and Dedric’s time in Newton strengthens their bond while evil works to undo all of Laura’s gifts, especially her legacy. After finding the greatest love an alpha could dream of, Dedric will do anything and everything to keep Laura safe from harm.

Blog Tour & Review: A Room Away from the Wolves

A Room Away From the Wolves
by Nova Ren Suma

Bina has never forgotten the time she and her mother ran away from home. Her mother promised they would hitchhike to the city to escape Bina’s cruel father and start over. But before they could even leave town, Bina had a new stepfather and two new stepsisters, and a humming sense of betrayal pulling apart the bond with her mother—a bond Bina thought was unbreakable.

Eight years later, after too many lies and with trouble on her heels, Bina finds herself on the side of the road again, the city of her dreams calling for her. She has an old suitcase, a fresh black eye, and a room waiting for her at Catherine House, a young women’s residence in Greenwich Village with a tragic history, a vow of confidentiality, and dark, magical secrets. There, Bina is drawn to her enigmatic downstairs neighbor Monet, a girl who is equal parts intriguing and dangerous. As Bina’s lease begins to run out, and nightmare and memory get tangled, she will be forced to face the terrible truth of why she’s come to Catherine House and what it will take for her to leave...

Release Date: September 4, 2018
Publisher: Algonquin Young Readers
Genre: Young Adult, Magical Realism, Mystery

My thoughts...
This story is so captivating! When I first started reading ARAFTW, I was super confused, and had to start over. But I did thoroughly enjoy the book. This is my first Nova Ren Suma book but it will not be my last. Nova a has a very unique writing style, that captivates, and confuses you so be prepared. I can say that I love Nova's writing style but the mysteries just kept piling up...sometimes it felt that there were no answers just mysteries. ARAFTW is very haunting, breathtaking, and Bina is hard not relate too. Bina and her mother were trying to escape Bina's horrible father but Bina's mother is now remarried. Bina's new stepfather it seems isn't too different from her father, now let's horrible step-sisters, and a mother that seems to no longer know or care...We see Bina runaway after being told that she is being sent away for the summer because of her step-family...Bina is searching for the same things that we all want, a place to call home, family, and ultimately a place to belong. My rating 4/5

Review: Heart of Mist

Title: Heart of Mist (The Oremere Chronicles #1)
Author: Helen Scheuerer
Publisher: Talem Press
Release Date: August 30th, 2017

In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.

Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital.

But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers.

The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated.

Heart of Mist is the gripping first book in The Oremere Chronicles, a fantasy series of epic proportions.


Welp let's jump right into this! We meet Bleak, yes that is her name, and yes she is quite bleak...But she is also a spitfire! Boy could she dish it, I just wish she protected herself more....but ehh Bleak is an alcoholic in every sense of the word, she spends her days looking for coin to buy alcohol to help curb her misery....Misery you say! Welp Bleak can hear peoples thoughts! Yes she like telepathic...She is living in a world that doesn't allow magic but she has magic...

Bleak also has her BFF4Life even if she refuses to see that he only wants the best for her. How does Bleak get her coin? Well those wonderful tourists that come to town, and spend their money on frivolous things, she helps herself to their coin bags/pouches, and or pick pockets just depends on her mood. Bleak eventually comes into her own, once she realizes that it's okay being different. I honestly appreciated Bleak the most, she is the protagonist, and she is jaded but she has every right to be. Bleak had real issues, and dealt with them accordingly, seeing her go through withdrawal from her addiction was tough. But she was able to overcome her addiction, and learn to deal with being a magical entity but not really an entity...At this point you should just read the book...My rating 4/5 

(A big thank you to the author. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

Release Date:August 21st 2018 

Mischa Abramavicius is a walking, talking, top-scoring, perfectly well-rounded college application in human form. So when she's rejected not only by the Ivies, but her loathsome safety school, she is shocked and devastated. All the sacrifices her mother made to send her to prep school, the late nights cramming for tests, the blatantly resume-padding extracurriculars (read: Students for Sober Driving) ... all that for nothing.

As Mischa grapples with the prospect of an increasingly uncertain future, she questions how this could have happened in the first place. Is it possible that her transcript was hacked? With the help of her best friend and sometimes crush, Nate, and a group of eccentric techies known as "The Ophelia Syndicate," Mischa launches an investigation that will shake the quiet community of Blanchard Prep to its stately brick foundations.
