by Jennifer Estep

I used to murder people for money, but these days it’s more of a survival technique.

Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town.

Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power. Salina also has an intimate history with my lover, Owen Grayson, and now that she’s back in town, she thinks he’s hers for the taking.

Salina’s playing a mysterious game that involves a shady local casino owner with a surprising connection to Owen. But they call me the Spider for a reason. I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.

For fans of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the thrilling conclusion to The Blackwell Pages, written by New York Times bestselling YA authors, K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr.
Thirteen-year-olds Matt, Laurie, and Fen have beaten near-impossible odds to assemble their fellow descendants of the Norse Gods and complete epic quests. Their biggest challenge lies ahead: battling the fierce monsters working to bring about the apocalypse.

But when they learn that Matt must fight the Midgard Serpent alone and Fen and Laurie are pulled in other directions, the friends realize they can’t take every step of this journey together. Matt, Laurie, and Fen will each have to fight their own battles to survive, to be true to themselves, and to one another – with nothing less than the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

Seattle, 2010. When her entrepreneur husband dies in an accident, Michelle Preston Richardson, 48, finds herself childless and directionless. She yearns for the simpler days of her youth, before she followed her high school sweetheart down a road that led to limitless riches but little fulfillment, and jumps at a chance to reconnect with her past at a class reunion. But when Michelle returns to Unionville, Oregon, and joins three classmates on a spur-of-the-moment tour of an abandoned mansion, she gets more than she asked for. She enters a mysterious room and is thrown back to 1979.

Distraught and destitute, Michelle finds a job as a secretary at Unionville High, where she guides her spirited younger self, Shelly Preston, and childhood friends through their tumultuous senior year. Along the way, she meets widowed teacher Robert Land and finds the love and happiness she had always sought. But that happiness is threatened when history intervenes and Michelle must act quickly to save those she loves from deadly fates. Filled with humor and heartbreak, THE JOURNEY gives new meaning to friendship, courage, and commitment as it follows an unfulfilled soul through her second shot at life.

Now it’s time to vote!

    • I agree you can never go wrong with UF. I love this series and binged the first 5 books then read the sixth when it released and pre-ordered the next few and then never read those. So I really want to get back to the series soon.

    • It’s a great series and I would certainly recommend it. I have owned the third and last book for a while now and still haven’t read it. I am looking forward to see how the series ends. I read a few MG books this month and I defintiely should read more of them.

  1. Well I’m going to have to jump in my computer to vote because for some reason it’s not coming up on my phone. I was going to vote Spider’s Web because I’ve that series, but then I realized you’re further than I am so I’m jealous lol! Plus then I read the synopsis for The Journey and it sounds so good! I love stories that go back in time like that. So I think I’ll eventually be voting for The Journey 🙂

    • I kinda wish they all could win as I really want to read all 3 of them. If you catch-up to me on the elemental assassin series, we might be able to do a buddy read. At whcih book are you?
      I agree The Journey sounds really good as well, I am nto a fan of tiemt ravel stories, but I realy enjoyed the first book in that series and got the rest for review as well, yay!

      • Oh that would be fun! I’m through #5 i believe. The one where she kills the evil air elemental whose name I can’t remember at the moment. I felt satisfied at that point, so I took a break.

        • I should look up till which book I have read, I think I read till book 5 or 6 and own the next 2 or 3 books and haven’t read those yet.

    • I think it’s an interesting situation how this characetr will meet her younger self and I really wonder how that will be handled. And indeed I think many people would like to give their younger self some advice and guidance.

    • One of the best things about that series is the artwork, there is also artwork throughout the book, it’s really well done and helps the story come alive. And Armstrong is one of my favourite authors, so I am pretty sure it will be a good book!
