If there is one lesson I've been taught in my life, it's that fairies are the absolute worst.
Finding a fledgling succubus in Faerie is like locating a needle inside a realm-sized haystack. With a guide I can't trust and a goal more ephemeral than smoke, my odds of success are tenuous at best. Not to mention, as the last Elemental in existence, I have a giant target painte

"You look like mayhem and magic all rolled into one--which has been your aesthetic since the dawn of the wiggle dress."

03-30: I've been wanting to explore the 'Rogue Ethereal' series by Annie Anderson for some time. So, when I got the chance to read her upcoming release-- 'Priestess of Storms & Stone (Rogue Ethereal Book 5),' I jumped at it.

I flipping love Max! I love the character development, the world building, and the supporting characters. There are unpredictable plot twists, so I never get bored. I love how the characters are so relatable. I feel as though I know them. Whenever I cry, my husband tries to remind me they are fictional characters, but they aren't; they are my friends. The entire series is so good, I'm sad that it is ending soon, but I guess Max deserves her HEA. ...more

Annie Anderson juggles many characters in this series, but this makeshift family has one main thread in common: Max. Whether it’s working with Max, doing things for her best interest, OR trying to make sure she stays alive (it’s mainly this one, lol) never let it be said life is boring!

Max going to Fairie to undertake a highly unrecommended rescue, learning about her powers in fast, dangerous curves, and possible endangering everyone she holds dear... Max brings new meaning to chaos, but darned

Max is a legend and her growth is unbelievable! Annie Anderson keeps wowing me and I hope she never stops. The character development, banter, action and romance are all on point and I can't get enough!! I've recommended all of the books to all of my friends and they are forever grateful!

Max is back and ready to fulfill a promise she made to Melody. A promise that will as usual land Max in a realm she doesn’t want to be in fighting a battle she can’t avoid. Amidst all this Max is finding out who she really is and how she fits into the world with that knowledge. She is shouldering great blame when it comes to her sister, feeling gut wrenching betrayal by her best friend, and finding out that she is better with Alistair around. She accepts the ring on her finger and

Priestess of Storms & Stone
is the fifth book in the Rogue Ethereal series and continues the story of Max and her friends.

It was no surprise that I was going to love Priestess of Storms & Stone because the Rogue Ethereal series is just amazing. I really like the world Annie Anderson’s created because I love a good series with a lot of supernatural characters. On top of that, she made a

Rough read

This book was disappointing to me. I didn't enjoy it, wasn't interested in it, and almost stopped reading it a few times.

Sure, there was still constant action, but it was almost too much. There's only so much that can happen, someone can only be so great. But Max just became more and more amazing. She went from witch/human to demon/witch to elemental fae to demi-god elemental fae, daughter of Chaos. I couldn't get behind it.

Most things that happened in this book just had my eyes roll
In book five of the Rogue Ethereal series we learn more about Max's backstory in this page turning read. I loved how strong Max is and her relationship with Alistair is great. They are perfect for each other. This book has it all drama, action, suspense, magic, secrets, twists and a cliffhanger that left me wanting to read the next book asap. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

From the first paragraph this book takes off at a dead run and never slows down. I think I held my breath for at least half of it. Another great entry in Max’s story that leaves you begging for more.

I am so excited I got to read this as an Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review. I fell in love with this series right of the bat, and when I got through book four, I was feeling rather bereft about not having access to the next book because it wasn't written yet! Cue tears of anguish. So, I was extra happy when she posted in her reader group (which you should definitely join) on facebook that she was prepping ARCs and we could sign up for one. Obviously... I did that real quick.

Max is bad with a brand new addiction... actually it’s an upcoming fight. She has to make a trip to the very last place she thought she’d ever have to go to. Faerie. She has to uphold a promise she made to keep Melody’s son safe which means she has to push aside her unwanted worries and traipse through the lands of the fae to find the fledgling succubus.

Faerie... it’s going to be memorable, no doubt. Don’t worry though, she’s not going alone. Della, Aiden, Teresa and Alistair are going to be ri

Priestess of Storms & Stone (Rogue Ethereal #5) by Annie Anderson

***5 stars***

Max is back, and full of her usual spunk with a little extra shine and sparkle thrown in. Every pun intended. (You will understand when you read...LOL).

We finally get the backstory of Max and who she really is, and where she came from. I never thought I'd say these words, but it actually made me feel a bit for Teresa, who we also learn more about.

There is a battle in Faerie happening, and it tests everyone and everyth

Where do I even begin?! From the very start of this book, you’re immediately immersed in action, love, sorrow and excitement. I didn’t think it was possible for Max to be any more badass but in this book she takes it to a whole new level. I couldn’t put this book down and I am absolutely dying to read the next!

OHMYGOSHILOVETHISBOOK!! Max just keeps getting better and better with each new story and Alistair a little more dreamy. Max and the gang head down to Faerie in an effort to find Melody and her son Ronan. On this trip down the rabbit hole we get to learn more about Della which was a treat. I for one am hoping we get to see a little more of Torren. A cliffhanger ending, I can’t wait for the next installment to see where they will venture to next. A great series I would definitely recommend.

Fantastic! Annie hits pay dirt with this action packed, hard hitting, pulse racing, heart pounding, adrenaline pumping, page flipping bombshell, hooks you from the start and reels you in for the duration. A tumultuous wild ride with a bevy of exasperating events and baffling circumstances, thrusts those churning emotions into play front and center, wrapping it up and heading home. Sparks fly as drama, intrigue, tension, underlying currents, turmoil, danger, mounting su

I decided to not continue. Whereas I found her likeable in the first 3 books, she became petulant and derogatory towards others the more I read. Plainly - the more her powers became stronger, the meaner she got and yet the author tried to explain that away.
I found book 4 full of plot-holes and just couldn't stomach finishing this book. A lot of things don't make sense to me: 1. Why do we have POVs for that to fly out the window? = just to mislead the reader I guess 2. So she could hardly f

Max is still suffering the devastating loss of her sister when she’s hit with the stunning news that not only is Melody alive, but she’s stolen her son Ronan and taken him to Faerie. Max is determined to keep her promise and make sure Melody’s son is safe, so against all objections she and her motley crew head off to Faerie.

For her entire life Max had no real idea of who or what she was. In this penultimate book of the series, she finally finds her answers and so many things that have happened i

This is the fifth book in the series and they must be read in order. It seems that Max can’t catch a break. She has always thought she was a rogue witch. Then learned that she was part demon. Now she has learned she is neither. She is fae. Her glammer has been removed. She made a promise to Melody to protect her son. Someone has taken the boy. In fact it was Melody herself or at least that is what someone wants them to think. Max must now go to faery and rescue Melody and her son. Things are abo ...more

Max is back and she's even better than before. I think you could read this as a standalone but you'll miss all the backstory so I highly recommend reading all the books, in order.

Max is a world unto herself. She's fast to act and she's made a promise that she'll keep even though everyone tells her it's a BAD idea. But she always keeps her word so she and her friends enter Faerie where she has more enemies than friends.

Fast paced action. You'll read it in one sitting because you won't be able to

The fifth book in The Rogue Ethereal series is amazing. Max is grieving and still wrapping her mind around everything that happened from the previous book. She's determined to keep her promise to her sister. So, Max and Alistair set out to do so, along the way they end up hearing rumors in regards to the Unseelie Court that involve her sister. Not something Max expected, she's now determined to search for the truth. It's a book of dealing with loss and going through the grieving process. We see ...more

Annie Anderson continues to give me hours of enjoyment with her books. Max is back (YEAH!) and you just know that some heads are gonna roll!

There is plenty of action, magic, a little romance, and vengeance in this book. When you pick it up, be prepared for a long day or night of reading until you can reach the end. I love this series and will be sorry to see it end, but I also look forward to Max finally getting some well-deserved happiness.

The world building is great, the characters are well-de

Loved it!

Apparently Max is not the only one that comes back to life after she dies. She saw her friend Melody die but now she has come back to life, has stolen her son from his adopted parents, and is running around Faerie killing people. Max does not want to have to go to Faerie but she promised Melody before she died that she would take care of her son. Max always keeps her promises and now that she knows that she is a Faerie she Has to keep her promise or die. Max will not be going into Faeri

Another amazing story from Annie Anderson!! I finished this story in record time, partially thanks to COVID-19, mostly because it is such a fantastic story!

The story starts where the last story ends. The search for Melody and her son is on. This time everyone is going with her. I don't know if Faerie will ever be the same.

More trials and tribulations wait for them in Faerie, but so do some very unexpected revelations.

I thought this would be the end of the series. Boy was I wrong. There is going

Max's power is both her greatest strength and her greatest weakness. Following her through yet another realm with the potential to destroy them all will keep you wondering will she have what she needs to conquer her past or will those she holds most dear betray her again. As she learns more about herself than even she is sure she wants to know, does she have the strength to take her rightful place and is that even her destiny?

Right from the beginning we jump straight into the story where the previous book left off. Max is no nonsense and gets down to business on what she needs to do and where she needs to go. We get a little bit of background and look into Dellas life in this book. We also get some of the story of Max's true family and their background, which sets up perfectly for the next book. If you havent read any of Annie's books, I suggest you pick up Max's stories and get wont be disappointed!

Max is a badass! She is back to try and fulfill the promise she made to Melody and her son Ronan. Even when it means going to Faerie, a place she never expected to go. Magic, Fae, witches, intrigue; so much more is in this book. Annie has outdone herself.. each book Max gets better and better. Definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read.

I cannot wait to read the next installment of Max's journey. You have to read the first books before diving into this one or you will be woefully lost. Take the risk, the ...more
