Blog Tour - Fractured Soul, Review and Giveaway

About Fractured Soul

Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her new found friends and home, but the dark plot threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat. This fast-paced tale of love, loyalty, and overcoming the darkness will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page!

What others are saying: 

“I love these books! A kick-butt heroine and a hottie love interest, with a refreshingly original concept. Be prepared—once you start, these are hard to put down.”
—Paula Cotton, book reviewer at

“Fractured Soul is a brilliant sequel, exceeding even the remarkable first book in the series. It will haunt your every waking moment between the times you’re reading it, and it will stay with you long after you’ve finished. It’s an amazingly well written and engrossing story that I highly recommend—after you’ve read the first one, of course.”

—Cindy Bennett, bestselling author of Geek Girl and Rapunzel Untangled

My Review

Llona is ready to start a new adventure in her life, she and her best friend May are both attending Lucent Academy, the school that Llona's aunt Sophie runs in New York. Aunt Sophie has been trying to coax Llona into attending forever. After the run in with her math teacher the Vyken, Llona was packed up and sent to Lucent whether she wanted to be or not. Unfortunately, Llona was bitten by the Vyken and the bite marks won't heal. She's also felt some strange darkness in her body and soul. She's concerned, but knows that she needs to keep the fact that she was bitten secret, who knows what her aunt, May and all the other girls at Lucent would think of her if they knew she'd been bitten. And her boyfriend, Christian, what would he think? Llona is quite surprised when she finds out that aunt Sophie has requested that Christian become a guardian at the school. Now they won't be separated for as long as Llona had thought. But Sophie makes it clear that Llona and Christian aren't to be spending time together. Llona knows that she should spend her time inside the safety of the school grounds, but the darkness of the outside world calls to her and she has several run ins with both guardians and Vykens. She quickly learns that the school is not as safe as she had thought it would be, and since no one else knows it's up to Llona to stop the danger before it attacks the other auras.

I really loved this book. Llona is such a strong character. I wish that I could be as strong as she is. I love the illusion in this book of Llona using the Light that is in her to banish the darkness that is also in her. It reminds me of all of us, we all have our faults that are dark, but we also are able to call on Light from Heavenly Father to make the darkness disappear and heal us. The characters in this book and series are well written, I feel as though they could step off the pages of the book and talk to me. The plot has tons of action and moves so quickly that you don't want to put the book down, so you can learn what's going to happen next even faster! I also really liked that it was a clean read. 

I was able to download an ARC of this book from NetGalley.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …

Blog Tour - Sweet is the Work

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries. The women highlighted in this volume demonstrate the valiant and noble history of sister missionaries in an account that is sure to inspire readers to boldly go forth to share the truths of the gospel.

My review: Here's another great non-fiction book for women to read! I was fascinated by the accounts of some of the first female missionaries includ…
