  • Blending technology with something magical

    Ok I’m not a “gamer” so went into this wondering just how much virtual reality would be involved and happily can say it wasn’t written in a way that focused on terminology well out of my experience. Instead we get a very interesting story about a young woman who is kind of stuck going nowhere when unexpectedly her life ricochets from humdrum to explosive ! If I’m blunt I didn’t care for Imogen initially as yes she’s made sacrifices in order to help her mother but she’s obsessed with the world she plugs into each night to the extent that she just seems to ignore her mother repeatedly. Luckily the plot distracted me from these feelings and it was pretty full on as our protagonist not only dealt with her new abilities but also struggled with the characters who suddenly became very interested in her. I thoroughly enjoyed this aspect of the story as Imogen was constantly wary of these men who could seem oh so helpful and yet it was obvious that no one was actually being honest. I mentioned initially having reservations about the relationship between mother and daughter and have to say that this got completely turned on it’s head as they both showed such strength and love . I won’t lie and say they were women who were kick axx but honestly they truly left no prisoners and had this reader cheering them on . I would definitely like to read more about these characters and this book had some very refreshing and thoroughly interesting ideas that blended technology with just a tiny bit of what felt magical ! This voluntary take is of an advanced copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

  • Unique, Fast-paced Urban Fantasy

    Violet Spark is the first book in the newest Butterfly Witch series by Erin Kellison. It is a fast paced urban fantasy with action and adventure at every turn. Unique as ever it is an introduction to Imogen, blending science and magic accidently. This causes more upheaval in her life but also leads her to finally figuring out who she is. The relationship between her mother and herself is quite interesting. Remembering back to when I was a young adult with plans that were railroaded, it is authentically real. I remember some of those feelings well. Despite insisting that she is an adult that is only in her own mind. She behaves more teenager-ish. So this will be the making of her. I am glad to be along with her as she finds who she is and what she is made of. 4.5 Stars The publisher/author gave me a complimentary ARC of the book which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Violet Spark

    VIOLET SPARK is the first book in The Butterfly Witch series. Mo (Imogen) has a normal life - in that she has dropped out of school to look after her mom, is Manager at the local Desert Freeze shop, and games until she can no longer keep her eyes open. She can't see that changing anytime soon, but when another gamer kisses her in the shop, her life explodes into something she never expected. If you are expecting Mo to understand what is going on, to have all the answers there, to look divine, without a care in the world, then I'm afraid you've got the wrong book! Mo is completely realistic in her reactions to what is going on. You are with her all the way as she keeps the reader informed of her feelings and decisions through internal monologues. One thing I loved (without spoilers) is both Mo and her mom are not taking any prisoners! They are not princesses to await rescue. They'll rescue themselves, thank you very much!!! A great start to the series that I feel only dips beneath the surface. Looking forward to reading further in this series. Absolutely recommended by me. ** same worded review will appear elsewhere ** * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

    Thanks for your feedback!
