Isabel Reads
Forgotten Sea

Quick Summary: A Seeker is sent by her people to find and protect others of her kind. When she finds the man she is looking for, she discovers that he is nothing like what she expected. Going against her training, she decides to risk everything to help him remember who he really is.

Bear: It was really good. I love the hot guy on the cover.

Isabel: Yeah, the pic definitely feeds the imagination. ;)

Bear: Haha, it really helped me picture the character better.

Isabel: I liked the story and the characters. I think she did a nice job of keeping the suspense up. I liked the development of the main character’s histories. The way the story slowly unfurled was very well paced. I wish she had explained more of the myth she was using. I think a lot was left to the guesswork of the reader. It was something that probably would have been confusing if you hadn’t already read countless books with similar myth structures. Maybe I need to read more of the series to get a feel for it.

Bear: I didn’t mind the myth stuff. It didn’t take away from the story. Or the hot guy.

The Guardian

Quick summary: A demi-god takes a dream hunter prisoner to try and find the object that his dark master, Noir, is searching for. They both find out that neither of them is who they were expected to be and that the fate of their world might be at stake if Noir finds what he is looking for.

Isabel: This book was really good. I loved how the relationship between the two main characters developed. It was a little over the top but I appreciated how they both had flaws and strengths and even though they hurt each other they could still move past that to find love. I feel like the back story would have been a little richer if I had read the other books in the series first. Other than that, I really liked this one.

Bear: It was good. I knew it was going to be good because I liked her other stuff.

Isabel: I love how she made him sound so sweet and vulnerable.

Bear: And beefy and hot too. Hehe :D
