Fevered Souls Season 2 by S.K. Falls

Where to buy:


*Review may contain spoilers to Season 1*

As soon as I started reading this, I was right back in to the world with Cara and Dax all over again, I love when I can immerse myself in a world like that. The romance between Cara and Dax is so sweet and innocent, and I don't see that in many new adult books right now, and it is really a refreshing change. You can feel the love that they have for each other, and that they really do want to know everything about what happens, like when Dax has to do his ritual, and Cara chooses to stay and watch so she can better understand where he is coming from after.

This is a fantastic follow up to Season 1, there was so much action and twists that I was not expecting that I could not stop reading it! I really enjoy the characters in this series, even though it is paranormal, there is still aspects that you can connect to them on a moral level and they really do seem like us. Also the struggles that Cara has in this season are really big, and I cannot wait to see how they play out in season 3! 

The highlight of the book for me was the twist with James and what happens to him, and how he knows that something has happened, and wants to rebel against it, but at the same time he agrees with what they are doing to a certain extent, and does not understand how Cara can be living her life the way she is, and it puts a real tension on their friendship.

And that ending! Who saw that coming! If you have not read this series yet, please do, you will not be disappointed, and it is definitely a great bang for your buck as each season is only $2.99 right now and worth every penny. This season get a 5/5 from me.

Moirai (Aberrant #2) by Ruth Silver

(eBook cover)

(Paperback cover)

Where to buy:


Olivia has been on the run from the government of Cabal since the marriage ceremony. Finally settling in and finding herself a place to call home, in Shadow, Olivia and Joshua are preparing for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months.

With new abilities and special talents, from Mindonsiphan, Olivia learns that she can do more than most ordinary eighteen year olds. Learning both to hide and perfect her skills will be one of the biggest challenges that she will be forced to face.

A constant rollercoaster of emotion and adventure await Olivia and Joshua, as they embark on a journey to the rebel city of Torv, and what was once home, Genesis.


I have been waiting for this one since I finished Aberrant a few months ago, and this did not disappoint, I think I actually enjoyed it more than the first, which is always a great surprise. I was ecstatic when Ruth contacted me about being on this tour, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get accepted in to the tour for book three as well (*cough* Ruth! *cough* lol) as she is one of those EVIL authors who like to put major cliffhangers at the end of their books, which I love and hate all at the same time!

I loved all the action in this book, it started off right at the beginning, and carried on through the whole thing. I didn't know at some points who Olivia and Joshua could trust and who they couldn't because of how Olivia is special and how everyone keeps telling her that, it seemed like they would all try to take her or something. We are introduced to new characters and new cities in this part of the series, and I have to say that I thought that Ruth's world building was fantastic, I was able to imagine everything in my head and follow along without anything getting to be too much or confusing. I just hope that the world never turns in to this one in my lifetime, it is a bleak and dark place that will make you appreciate all the colour around you everywhere you look, especially outside.

I think my favourite part of this book though was watching the relationship between Olivia and Joshua grow, it was very well written, and so innocent which is refreshing to read. There have been a lot of books that I have read lately where it seems that the teenagers are put in to serious relationships and things are taken to the next level, when it does not seem like they are mature enough for it. Mind you Olivia and Joshua do have to grow up in the way that they are on their own with only each other to count on, but they understand that they have a lot of growing up to do still before they start that sexual part of their lives and risk the consequences that could arise from that, and I think we need more books like these for teenagers to read.

I will be honest and say that dystopian is not one of my top genres to read about, but I am really excited for this series, and I am honoured that I get to be one of the many people that is able to spread the word for Ruth and get more people reading it! A 5/5 from me, and I am impatiently awaiting the third installment! If you like this genre even a little bit, give this series a try, I promise you will not be disappointed, and if you have read it, please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought about it, I would love to have someone to chat with about it.
