Okay, I know this is my own book, but honestly, I am just so in love with this story that I can't help it! I've spent the last 2.5 years writing, re-writing, and editing this novel, and I hope that you will enjoy it too! Thank you for taking the time to review! ...more

"The Tyranny Carnelian" a blend of faith, fantasy and romance begins with Marisa MacCallum's preparation for her coronation only weeks away, and her continual dodging of setting a date for her marriage to Prince Darian Fiore. As tension mounts between these two, news of a secret plot to assassinate the royal family creates a scare that has Marisa fleeing to Castle Beauriél with her brother Mark and her Uncle Al while Darian looks after affairs of state in Crocette.

When Savino's giant warriors at
This book picks up right where it left off in book one and is just as compelling.

Marisa is now preparing for her big event whilst still adjusting to her new life.

Darian and the rest of the household are very supportive and help Marisa to adapt to her new status but Savino has different ideas. They learn that Savino is plotting an attack to eliminate the Fiore family as he believes that the title should be his. Darian is as passionate about keeping Marisa and the kingdom safe as much as he is i

I received this book for an honest review.

It's been a few months since Marissa learned she is The Future Queen of Carnelia. However her power hungry of a cousin is planning to take the title and throne from her. Not only does she have Savino to worry about but she still has lessons to prepare for her reign and coronation to become the best Queen she can be. With Prince Darian at her side, Marissa knows she can handle everything that is being thrown at her. However she's only 18 years old and sti

A wonderful sequel to the first book, The Carnelian Legacy. I already fell in love with the characters in book one, so it's no surprise that I was excited to get my hands on this second part of the journey.

I'll admit, I did help in the proof reading end of this, but I wouldn't have given my time if I didn't really enjoy the story.

We get to know the characters even better, their good points as well as their faults. Actually, that's one of the things I loved most about this. The characters do ma

I love love love this book! I didn't think it was possible to love the second book more than the first one, but I did. The characters are more developed, more mature and go through so much together in this book that it keeps things exciting and real. This book is non-stop action but romantic and loving at the same time. Another page turner that I couldn't put down. Like the first one, this book has everything to keep your interest, excite you, warm your heart and keeps you cheering for the good ...more

Saved the best for last

I've had this book for months now and couldn't read it yet till now! And I'm glad to say I saved the best for last! I've been with the Carnelian Legacy since the beginning and the second book was no disappointment at all! If you're into knights, kings and queens, sorcerers and some science then you'll love this series! It has romance, some actions, yes there are barbaric scenes but given the era in which the story takes place, it's suitable. Can't wait for the 3rd book an

This book was amazing. The author did such a good job of describing and placing everything that it felt like I was watching it before my very eyes on a movie screen. I'd like to call it a "tush tightener" so to speak ;). I couldn't put the book down in my free time because I always had to know what happened next! I can't wait to read the next one! ...more

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book to review from the author. This review is also posted on my personal website

A while ago I have read the first book in the Carnelian series, The Carnelian Legacy. For those who have read more of my reviews know that once I start a new book series, I always want to finish it. That was precisely the reason that I started The Carnelian Tyranny: Savino's Revenge.

The second book starts right where the first book left off. Marisa’s ident

I received this book in the Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Hmm... To be honest, I had very high expectations after reading The Carnelian Legacy. The Carnelian Tyranny was good... But it did leave me disappointed. Like one thing that irritated me was the themes of religion AGAIN. These themes were so prominent in this book that it came off a bit preachy. Like come on, Eman was impaled at the wrists and feet (sound familiar?) oh and he was seen walking on water (this sounds REALLY familiar). If o

Born and raised as a native Oregonian, I married a dreamy Dutch naval officer more than two decades ago and have been living in The Netherlands ever since.

As a busy mother of four rapidly-growing young adults, I enjoy spending the precious little spare time I have writing stories I'd love to discover on a bookstore shelf. When I'm not writing, I can be found on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn
