Today we’ll all be posting our book reviews! I reviewed “Endless Winter” by J.A. Armitage, the first book in her Guardians of Light series. First, a bit of info on the book (the cover links to Amazon):
“Imagine falling in love for the first time, the adrenaline, the flutters. Now imagine being told you had to have a baby with somebody else…Trapped in an unfamiliar room with no way out, Anais has no idea just how much her life is about to change. A locked door stands between her and freedom but as she is just about to find out, the door is the least of her problems.
Anais had never believed in demons and vampires so when she is transported into a dark world that she doesn’t understand she is forced to realize that humans can be the most terrifying monsters of all. Yet in the shade of her new life she finds light in the most unexpected place of all. In this occult paranormal romance, follow Anais into the realm of The Guardians of The Light and into a mystery saga filled with temptation, loss, fear and above all love.”

“Endless Winter” begins with Anais waking up in a strange bed, in a room she doesn’t recognize. She for some reason feels calm, and kind of warm and fuzzy, even though she knows she should be scared out of her mind. I won’t give too much away, but mystery ensues, and I was hooked from a very early point.
The thing I enjoyed most about “Endless Winter” was its unique plot. I’m an avid reader, so when I find something new and intriguing I’m like a kid in a candy store. I devoured this book like a rich box of chocolates (sorry for the analogy, this is why I don’t often write reviews). I loved how the mystery slowly unfolded instead of just slapping you in the face. I tend to be a face slapper, so I was impressed with the amount of plotting and subtle allusion the author put into making this mystery something that the reader and Anais can slowly figure out together. Fast forward, and we learn that Anais is the focal point of a situation with unbelievably high stakes. I’ll be buying the next book in this series, because I really need to see where this all goes!
Tomorrow I’ll be interviewing J.A. Armitage, so be sure to stop back by! While you’re waiting, here are the other reviews on the blog tour, including J.A.’s review of my book, “Truth or Death”. (More reviews to come as they’re posted. Also, don’t forget to enter our giveaways!
