Getting better, slowly but surely. Still not sure what to make fully of some relationships, but I hope it keeps improving.

Favorite Season!
A Rip of Realms... oh my goodness A Rip of Realms. This book is literally nonstop action and absolutely fantastic. I cannot gush over this season enough.
I am honestly at a loss of words on where to begin with this review. The pure brilliance of this book has left me speechless. I can't even get started on the Cliffhanger Bella left us with too. Holy bageezus!!
I am elated that a certain couple finally had their bowchickawowwow moment BUT in a way that I didn't even know was possi

A 'ripping' Nevertide extravaganza!

Could this series get any more intense? I would say not possible, but with Bella behind the ‘imaginative writing wheel,’ just about anything’s possible.

With the entity and the Acolytes causing havoc, and Nevertide literally falling to bits, the group are met with some harrowing challenges. King Ash must become the emperor to save the day, but of course nothing is ever straight forward in this mystical land of sentries.
Aside from this mission they have the angry

We are getting closer to learning who the entity is/are. The entity definitely wants revenge on the fae and they want revenge on the inhabitants of Nevertide for how long they have been locked in the stones. If Tejus's dad, the emperor of Nevertide, had left the stones alone, the entity would still be locked away for hopefully all of eternity.
With the ripping open of the portal from the entity and by GASP on the other side of the portal, a tear in the sky has formed and earthquakes rocked the l

Fall of the Queen

The people of Hellswan are forced to relocate to Tejus mothers palace after the destruction the entity caused. The whole of Nevertide is in shambles and with a new emperor there is no better time to unite all the kingdom's. Hazel discovers a traitor in their midst. I am so glad that Gasp is finally closing in in the kids. So close! I wonder what they will think of this new world its people and what has happened to their kids along with some of the changes that have occured.

Can't get enough

Wow! I've read thirty nine books. Can not put them down and have been unable to stop to write a review. I would have never thought I'd be this interested in this series. With each book you get further sucked into it's depth of wanting more. Bella is wonderful in creating romance, drama, mystery and more.

Gripping as ever!

What is it?!?! Once again, out of the frying pan into the fire, will anyone make it out - will the young survive and live happy lives with their chosen........

Book 40 will reveal the answers! (I hope!)

Shade, Volume 39

I can't believe that this series might be ending in two more books. I am stuck reading this series for the past week and am now caught up and so sad that this series might be ending.

OMG, this series just keeps getting better and better. I don't want to say too much because I don't like giving out spoilers and pretty much anything you say about the book will give it away.

I will say that the castle has fallen and Hellswan had to move on. There is a new emperor (but I will not give out who that is). I am still falling more and more in love with Hazel and Tejus. He is starting to become more and more soft around Hazel and showing his love for her and I love that in a couple. A

All of Bella Forrest books are amazing and leave you wanting more in the end. The cliff hangers are powerful and have you dreading waiting for the next story to come out. This book is full of twist and turns, have you question what could possibly be next, and make you hope the bad guys fail to the good guys make everything better.

Bella is a fantastic writer that will have you hooked to the story from start to finish. She doesn’t miss a beat.
This book is an action packed, heart stopping, roller coaster ride.
If you’ve made it to book 39 like I have, well then you know what I’m talking about.
Benedict is back to himself and helping everyone escape the collapsing building.
There’s really nothing left to Nevertides. The kingdoms are in ruins.
We now have a new Emperor but is it too late?
