A note, from Nalena:

The world has gone insane and our only option is to go deeper into The Fury.
Facing the enemy doesn’t scare me.
Unless he is my enemy now.

This is one of those series that you should read once it's complete. Why? Because it is TORTURE to wait for the next one!

Seriously, I don't think Misty could write a book I didn't like. Her narrative style hooks me every time and sucks me into the amazing worlds and characters she creates. I'm right there with Nali through every heartbreaking, beautiful, sexy, harrowing, destroying, redemptive moment of her journey from word one. Her descriptions paint such a vivid world I feel like I've climbed

Four solid stars: An amazing mind blowing series that you must experience for yourself!

Nali opens her eyes to find Garret's arms tightly wrapped around her. She is safe. Then the horrific truth comes crashing back and she remembers that she murdered someone to protect the Addo. The tunnels collapsed with Garrett's two younger brothers in them, and now they are missing, feared dead. The Fury are organizing and they are coming at the Ianua like never before. The world is in chaos as it has entered

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 5th APRIL 2013:


Misty Provencher always manages to throw in twists that blind side me in her books. She has such a knack for humor and emotion in her books. The Cornerstone series can make my sides hurt from Zane’s dialogue, it can have me holding onto my lunch with the infamous Free Ball scenes and it can have me all tied up in knots getting all angst ridden.

JAMB was no exception.

JAMB is one of those books that flows flawlessly throughout and there is never a dull moment. Like ever. I adored it. Likes lots. I can promise the plot in each of the books are totally different and totally addictive. And probably more so with JAMB. WOW! The action and the suspense was amped up tenfold. And guess what? The adventure is not over yet. I mean seriously, with an ending like that?? Yeah, riots would ensue and I would be tracking that woman down if she ended it there. I will say that ...more

Misty Provencher’s Jamb is the third book in her popular YA Cornerstone series. In Jamb, shy, bookish Nalena has finally adapted to, and accepted her role as an Ianua Contego – a warrior meant to protect other members of the clan. She has come to trust that handsome Garrett loves her unconditionally.

But that trust is challenged in Jamb, first through a challenge set up by their friends, and later through circumstances that arise beyond both their control.

Is Garrett truly Nalena’s “vieo” (somethi

Well, well, Misty Provencher I am mad at you! Oh, yeah M-A-D! Let me explain why!!! You wrote another amazing, outstanding book! Oh yeah, you did! Now, because of your outstanding writing (and the fact that I am addicted to this series) I have to wait until the next one.

Ok, now that my rant is out of the way I can go into my review.

HOLY CRAP. NO FREAKING WAY. Jamb was the BEST! I am seriously flipping out and I feel like doing 50 cartwheels and jumping in the air like a maniac.
I also feel like banging my head against a wall until the next book comes out. I am dying to know what happens next!
Garrett and Nalena's relatioship is taken to the limits in Jamb and it was so good, I wish I was Nalena.
I feel all jittery now. I tried to take it slow and make this book last because I didn't see any info on the fourth book yet, but

So good!!! So freakin' good!!! I will warn you, though, some parts of this were physically painful to read! Everyone seems to have lost their minds so who on earth can be trusted now? There are surprises around every corner (some will really knock your socks off)and danger coming at them from all sides. Most of the time I spent biting my nails and worrying, but there were a few steamy scenes to remind me that love can never be defeated.

Guys, I have really grown attached to this series. We are on book # 3 of a four book suite, and I have really become comfortable with the characters, especially Nalena and Garrett. Sometimes books that stretch into 4 books and beyond wear on me. I find myself getting bored with the characters and the extensive plot line(s). But that hasn't happened with the Cornerstone series. Instead it kind of feels like catching up with an old friend, you know?

Wowee, wow, wow, wow! (Yes, I've been reading too much Junie B. Jones) This book was INTENSE!

There's not a lot I can really get into without spoiling things from the previous books and since this is a series I VERY highly recommend I just want to convince you all to read this series already! Even if the first book is/was a so-so read for you, I encourage you to keep reading because the stakes just get higher and higher.

Wow! Misty does it again. If you've read any of the Cornerstone series, you know it's a story richly detailed with an intricate and always intense plotline. Jamb is no exception.
Jamb picks up right where Keystone left us... in the middle of an uproar, full of chaos with everyone questioning loyalties, and Nalena recovering and trying to make sense of it all. That's no easy task. The Ianua's Cura's are crumbling. Addo Larry's Cura is isolated, and all out war seems inevitable.
It's absolute insani
Jamb missed the mark for me, unfortunately.

The action didn’t really get underway until about 50% of the way through, when they left the Hotel Celare. Until then, they were just milling around, being generally suspicious of everyone not in their own Cura (group) and reacting to various eruptions of drama. Between the drama, Garrett and Nalena made out a lot, got interrupted a lot, Deeta mooned after Milo who mooned after Zaneen, and the Addo ate a lot of cookies and displayed a flagrant disregard

I didn't enjoy this as much as her previous two books, but it was definitely a solid addition to the storyline.

WIth most series, I get frustrated with the way the author constantly recaps what happened in previous books. Typically I read a series entirely at one time, because I tend to be late to the reading party, so I usually finish one and instantly pick up another. Because this wasn't out yet, it had been quite a while since I last read the series. This is the first time I noticed an author

Jamb.... Jamb... Oh my Nalena and Garrett my heart goes out to them. This story had me crying, laughing and then just down right pissed off at some characters and things that happened. Lord I laughed when I was done reading it because Misty sure the hell knows how to get my heart pumping and my anger boiling. Lord I felt like the Greek Furies at some points in Jamb and then I got a grip and kept reading. I have to say that at one point I thought I was not going to be able to finish the story bec ...more
Initial thoughts:

Oh goodness, that cliffhanger was awful. Why didn't the book after the second-to-last chapter when things were at a stopping point?! That last chapter was killer.

Ok, now that I've gotten that off of my chest, I can actually review the book.

Jamb picks up almost exactly where Keystone left off. Nali and Garrett are standing on the roof of the hotel watching the Fury approach, Nali wants to go help in some way to defend their haven, but Garrett tells her that she needs to rest beca

Wow! Starts where Keystone leaves off, and you get a brief warm up before we swing into high gear!

What I liked: I love Nali and Garrett and well, really the entire group. I love that Nali may have her insecurities where Garrett and her are concerned, but for the most part she worked through them. She is very level headed for a young girl in love. Garrett is amazing, what young girl wouldn't want to find him! Garrett's mother is one of my favorite characters because of her strength.

So here we are in a series that I desperately want to love and I'm just not getting there.

Here's why:
I still have questions about details of the world building that would make it that much more complete for me (ie. What does everyone else's tea leaves look like if they haven't found their other half? and other small gaps of knowledge of character motivations > I'll post them as I remember).
I also feel like we are just skimming the surface of a deep lake and I'm not getting everythin

This book was just as amazing as the other two in the series. I loved it. I read these 3 books in a weekend and now have to wait for the fourth. That is the worst part!

This book was non-stop action from page one. I love how each book picks up right where the last one leaves off. I also like that the author doesn't spend a lot of time rehashing things that we already know from the previous books. Sometimes that is really annoying. The characters are still amazing and we get to learn some interes
Oh my God, this book just does not let you catch your breath. Everytime I thought I knew where the story was going, it just ran off in the opposite direction and even so much better than what I would have expected.
Book 3 in the Cornerstone series is even better than book 1 and 2, but if Misty Provencher would make it any more suspenseful, I think my head just might explode.

I don't want to give anything away of the storyline, but it is nice to learn more about Nali, Garrett, Sean and Milo as we

Nalena ist in dem Wirrwarr nach dem Überfall/Umsturz im Celare mit Milo bei den Furys gelandet. Gleichzeitig nimmt Garrett den Platz seines Bruder Sean ein und läuft mit Teagan ebenfalls über. Sie erhoffen sich 'Mastermind' zu finden, den Lenker hinter den Furys.
Das Leben in Anarchie ist von Gewalt und Chaos geprägt. Sex hat wohl auch was anarchisches an sich - jedenfalls fällt Nalena dauernd über wilde Paare.
Interessant war die Außenwelt, die mittlerweile ebenfalls in Gewalt und Tod versinkt.

Loved it. I was wondering what the meaning of this title was, and yes I get it. I am so glad that you have allowed us to peek into your imagination. What else do you have going on in there? I wish there was more Garrett and Nila kissing here, but I am betting this will all be worth it at the end. I recomend this book, Misty Provencher is unpredictable and I never know what she will serve me next. Oh and I love how she used the game Whack-a-mole to describe a crazy fighting scene.
