Ameerah by Rebekkah Ford (review)

I got this book for an honest review and I never thought I would be so inlove with a book as I am with this one.

In 1925, eighteen-year-old Ameerah Arrowood is murdered in an insane asylum. She finds herself transported to a dreary realm that turns out to be a recruiting station for the dark spirits. With animosity in her heart toward humanity, she decides to join them.

For the next ninety years, Ameerah possesses soulless humans, living a hedonistic, mischievous and sometimes vengeful existence, but now she's seeking salvation so she can crossover and save her lost love who is stuck in the lower world. 

Ameerah enlists the help of her dark spirit friend Derek, who is straddling the line between Heaven and Hell. She tells him how it all began, weaving between historical timelines to now, hoping to gain understanding about why her parents betrayed her and wanting to get rid of the guilt weighing on her heart. In the end, the unexpected unfolds, throwing Ameerah a curve ball which changes her forever.

My Thoughts
I dont know where to start with this book but I cant start with saying that I have not read anything quite like this before and I have read so many books. The story is just perfect in the way it is written and how the story drags you in and capture the reader. It is easy to fall in love and to be one with the book, the story and the characters. Ameerah is a very interesting character that surprised me and I didnt think I would like her at first but I was wrong. I so fell in love with her and this story.

I cant find words to describe this read and how I feel about it. There just isnt enought words for me to put mu feelings into it. I fell in love with the book, I fell in love with the story! This is an amazing book and an amazing story and one of the best I have read in a very long time.

Bring Your Own Baker by D.E. Haggerty (Release tour)

Brisingr: Book 3 (The Inheritance cycle) - Christopher Paolini (book review)

So finished this book before the weekend but it took me a while to  upload the review here

Oaths sworn . . . Loyalties tested . . . Forces collide.

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives after the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains. Now Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep. 

He must help rescue his cousin Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But he also owes his loyalty to the Varden, the elves and the dwarves, who are in desperate need of his talents and strength. 

Eragon in the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

My Thoughts
This book had potential with a great start where throw us right into the story. I enjoyed the book there and then it went from bad to worse.

The story is very long and very boring. I am used to read fantasy but this is one of the most boring books I have read. I dont mind when there is a lot of talking but in this book it has no deapth and no reason for it. It is a lot of filling in the book with very little substans.

I liked Nasurda in the second book but in this one I really hate her. She has gone from a strong female leader to a actling like a spoild egoistic brat. Im sorry but that is the feeling I get from her and how she acts in the book.

Roran was enjoyable in the second book and sure he has a lot of interesting things going on in this book but it feel like he is the hero and not Eragon. When reading this book it felt like the story is more about Roran and how much a hero he is and everything he does than Eragon and Saphira becasue they do mostly talk, think, walk, run and fly.

The end is interesting and I like when Eragon returned for his training with the elves and the entire ending off the book. THe book is over 700 pages but if you took away 500 of them you would have a pretty good book but as it is now, it is boring and dragged on way to long. To much talking and to much nothing going on with Eragon. Also when things happens it is things we have read before. talking, talking Fighting Murtag and Thors who almost was a bad replay of the fight in the second book and more talking and inner monoloug.

I hope the last book in the series is better than this was because I really enjoyed the first book, most of the second book and parts of this one but this was just to much of things not going on.
