Blog Tour Stop: Playing the Maestro



Playing the Maestro
By Aubrie Dionne
Publication Date: February 11, 2013
Published By: Entangled Publishing: Bliss 

Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.

Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?



About the Author


Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.

Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

Now for the professional bio:

Aubrie Dionne is an author and flutist in New England. Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf. Her books are published by Entangled Publishing, Lyrical Press, and Gypsy Shadow Publishing. She recently signed her YA sci fi novel with Inkspell Publishing titled: Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed, which will release in October 2012. When she's not writing, Aubrie teaches flute and plays in orchestras. She's a big Star Trek TNG fan, as well as Star Wars and Serenity.

My Review:



I am truly humbled by Ms. Meyers request for me to read Imaginable and I must thank her tremendously for asking me! Thanks must also go to Girls Heart Book Tours for allowing me a spot in the tour. 

This book kind of scared me.  I LOVED Intangible and thought there would be no possible way to outdo that wonderful story.  I am so thankful I was proven wrong.
Our characters are still very much the loveable and personable characters we were introduced to in book one.  They’ve grown some into who they are but the core of them remains the same and wonderful.  I think I enjoyed them nearly (perhaps more) than I did the first time around.  It was like meeting up with an old friend after not seeing them for a while. Completely fantastic character building.

The story without giving too much away is just as enveloping as the first.  There are still surprises and unexpected turns that startle.  It is just as fascinating as the first book in terms of originality and creativity which is in the paranormal genre- quite refreshing.

Overall, I loved this book.  It was a wonderful continuation of the first and the characters are old friends.  (Perhaps I’m also biased. ^_^)  If you’ve read the first than the sequel is a definite must.  If you’ve not read the first than I definitely recommend getting to it.

Blog Tour Stop: Raksha by Frankie Rose


Raksha
by Frankie Rose
Publish Date: March 2013

She has no name.

She has her knives; her training; her halo.

The first and second give her the tools and the skill to defeat the opponents she is pitched against each month. The third frees her from pain and fear. From any kind of emotion at all. Everything is as it should be. Everything is as it should be, until…

FearPainAngerHappinessDesireGuilt

Love.

When a newly-named Kit escapes the Sanctuary after killing her best friend, the last thing she needs is another knife in her hand. Or Ryka, the damaged, beautiful blonde boy, who she refuses to let save her. Still learning how to process the onslaught of her new feelings, the sights and sounds of Freetown are overwhelming and strange. There are a hundred differences between her old home and her new one, but one thing remains starkly similar: the matches. Yet where the blood in the Sanctuary landed only on the colosseum floor, Kit will quickly learn that a river of red runs through Freetown’s very streets.

Freed from the oppression of a society who stole her right to feel, the true horror of her old life leaves Kit wondering if she really has been freed at all. Would she be better off without the crippling horror of all the blood on her hands, or is the love of one boy worth living through all the pain?

Raksha is the call of the dead. The rumbling chant for fresh blood from the other side, the demand for sacrifice. The colosseum is behind Kit. The fighting pits await.

You have been called to the fights.


First thing’s first.  Thank you to the tour host and Ms. Frankie Rose for allowing me to participate.  I am very honored. 

I’ve been dragging my feet.  Many other blogger friends have continually recommended Frankie Rose to me and I’ve just never picked one up.  There was always something else to read.  Now that I’ve read one of Ms. Rose’s books I feel like a total DICK for waiting so long.  For which I am sorry. 

The world Ms. Rose has built in Raksha is beautiful.  Not in beauty as in physical appearance but beautiful as in so very real and believable.  The story isn’t littered with multiple scenery like some and its simplicity makes it all that much more realistic.  It breathes is the best way to describe it.  

Kit is very human, very flawed.  She goes through a lot and (I believe) is stronger for it.  However, there’s stuff she goes through that does in fact make her weaker as well.  Her confusion is a very real, very palatable, very relatable. 

Ryka is… magnificent for lack of a better word.  He is truly beautifully tormented though hides it very well.  He also has an arrogance to him that isn’t enough to make him conceded but enough to make the reader realize he uses that to cover the torment which I find FACINATING.
The story is extremely fast paced.  There’s no way to lose track of detail or information but it definitely moved from point A to point B without hesitation or taking the scenic route.  It’s very well told and very well thought out.  

Raksha is one of those books that once started cannot be put down until finished and every interruption better be life threatening or else.  Definitely a must read for all dystopia, action packed readers.
