Dragon’s Gift: The Forbidden Fae series, by Linsey Hall | Series Book Review

Hello loves! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.

Today I have my series book review of Dragon’s Gift: The Forbidden Fae, by Linsey Hall

Dragon’s Gift: The Forbidden Fae is a 3 part series.

Trigger Warnings: Sexual Scenes, Sex Scenes (fade to black). Fighting, Blood, & others that I unfortunately cannot remember.

Please Note that this review may contain spoilers.

My fated mate is a lethal fae king.
And I’m going to kill him.

Ever since the Court of Flames banished me, I’ve managed to hide my true nature–Chosen One of the Fire Fae, destined to save us all. Truth is, I’m not that impressive. I’ve spent my banishment hunting demons for fun and slinging drinks at Potions & Pastilles. But then the lethally sexy king of the Court of Ice finds me.

He’s been hunting me for years and wants to claim me as his fated mate. But it gets darker. He plans to sacrifice me to save his dying kingdom. One touch changes everything though, because I’m the only one who can warm him.

I’m going to use that to my advantage and convince him to return with me to the Court that banished me years ago. There, I will kill him before he kills me. But I’m playing with fire, because I’m not sure if I can I resist him long enough to change my fate, and if I don’t die, then his entire Court will. Including him.

Crown of Fire (Dragon’s Gift, #1)

Had a fun time reading this first book, I found it to be quite interesting. I really enjoyed the few action scenes that we did read.

There aren’t any sex scenes in this first book.

When I got to the end of Crown of Fire, I absolutely had to read Fate of Fire immediately, so that’s what I did!

I gave Crown of Fire 3.5 stars.

Fate of Fire (Dragon’s Gift, #2)

Fate of Fire is absolutely action packed. Which was great — I love reading action packed books — but I especially adore when the second book starts right off where the last book left the reader. Which is 100% what Hall did with these books. Started off right where the last book ended, and I couldn’t have been happier about that.

Adding to the fact that we got answers in Fate of Fire, I enjoyed the book. There’s a steamy / sexual scene in Fate of Fire, for those of us who enjoy sexy scenes in stories.

Yet with all that I had enjoyed, there were two bits of the plot that I had predicted: Puka being able to shift forms, and how our main character magic is the one and the same. — Now, do I remember what these were about? No, and that’s okay, ’cause I’ll be in for a surprise if I ever re-read this trilogy.

I ended up giving Fate of Fire, 1 star.

Queen of Light (Dragon’s Gift, #3)

I ended up reading this entire trilogy in one sitting. To be honest with you, I don’t know how I still have legs, with how much I end up just sitting cross legged when reading, haha.

Within Queen of Light, there’s a sex scene, which is cool and dandy. Though the scene is a fade to black/ fade out type scene.

After all that these characters had been through, I’m glad and relieved that Claire gets a happily ever after!

In actuality, Queen of Light is an action packed book, a fast paced story, which I definitely like about the entire series.

I was really happy to find out that Connor will be getting his own book.

I definitely want to read more of the world that Linsey Hall created, so I’m over the moon giddy that Hall has written many companion books & series!

I ended up giving Queen of Light, 4 stars.

Have you read anything by Linsey Hall?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you soon, and Happy Reading!

September 2019 Wrap-Up


Hello readers!

Today is the day where I post my September 2019 Wrap-Up. Let’s see what I did in the blogging world this past September, hey?

September felt like it flew by. But then again, September and onward tends to move a little more quickly than anticipated. Also, my province won’t be participating in the time-fall-back-thing, and I am pissed.

How was your September?

Dragon Blood, by Linsey Hall | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my book review of

Dragon Blood, by Linsey Hall.

Dragon Blood is the second book in the Dragon’s Gift: The Sorceress series.

Trigger Warnings: Fighting, Blood, Murder.

44777706._SY475_A Race Against Time

There’s no rest for the wicked. Or for demon slayers. I’m both, so things have been busy. The sort of busy where I spend all my time trying not to get killed or discovered for what I really am—a Dragon Blood with the deadly power to create new magic.

When a mysterious bomb goes off in my town and my closest friends are turned to stone, it becomes a race against the clock to stop the demon who is still at large. Every six hours, another bomb takes out more people.

My only chance at catching the demon and reversing the spell is to team up with the too-sexy bounty hunter, Declan O’Shea. It’s nearly impossible to resist him, but I must. We’re natural born enemies, and if he discovers what I am, life as I know it would be over.

Dragon Blood is a fast-paced urban fantasy adventure starring a kick butt heroine, a powerful hero, and magic that will blow your socks off.

I didn’t particularly take any in-depth notes when I was reading Dragon Blood. So my review is going to be short and sweet….and probably make no sense. Continue reading

August 2019 Wrap Up


Hello lovelies!

Today I have my August 2019 Wrap Up. I can’t believe how fast the month of August went by. I don’t know about you, but to me, August seems to be one of the faster months of the year. During August I had a lot going on personally, and blog-wise as well.

In August I had family from out of town visit. I also started a big Project that I hope to announce sometime soon (perhaps in the next few weeks) as well.

Blog wise, I had a lot going on too. An overload of book reviews, which might be dwindling down within the rest of the year (because of the Big Project). I also had time to post non-book-review-y things this month as well.

How was your August 2019? 

Enjoy! Continue reading

Demon Slayer, by Linsey Hall | Book Review

Trigger Warnings: Fighting, Blood mention, Blood, Self-Harm mention.

44305923._SY475_Got a demon that needs killing? I’m your girl.

On paper, I’m a Blood Sorceress. I can whip up the spells of your dreams. It’s a legal occupation–barely–but mostly a cover.

My real job is protecting my city from the monsters of the Dark Realms. I’m the resident demon slayer, and occasionally those suckers escape. Then it’s up to me. I’ve even got a side hustle using their blood for my sorcery biz. It’s gruesome, but that’s life.

Things get complicated when I start clashing with a sexy AF bounty hunter. His name’s Declan, and we’re after the same necromancer. Bounty hunters are my enemy, and his stupidly hot body keeps getting in my way.

The only way to save the city is to team up with Declan. I have two goals: don’t kill him & don’t screw him. Both easier said than done, since self control isn’t really my thing. But it’s a race against time to catch the demon, and there’s no way in hell I’ll fail at that.

Demon Slayer is a fast-paced urban fantasy adventure starring a kick butt heroine, a powerful hero, and magic that will blow your socks off.

Aeri’s story is go-go-go right from the start, and let me tell you friend, Demon Slayer IS SO ENTERTAINING. The fact that this book has a fast story, only made my reading experience even faster. Seriously–I managed to read this one in a few hours.  Continue reading

July 2019 Wrap Up


Hello friends! How was your July?

My July was….good, at the beginning of the month. The rest of July seemed to drag on, and on and on. Yet now that I’m thinking back on this past month, time flew by. I got quite a bit of reading done, which I’m happy about. I also posted a few things as well. I’m trying to post more than just book reviews, so if you have any post recommendations throw ’em at me.

I hope July treated you and yours well.
