A Fae that kicks butt??? Yes please!!!


She couldn’t escape, even in death.

Cold. Stiff. Buried beneath the ground for decay. How do you comprehend waking up after being dead? For Dakini, that is a reality. Her last memory is of her land being destroyed as she meets her demise.

Something or someone brought her back. But why? The world she remembered is gone. The last thing she wants to do is face her killer again. Blending in seems to be her best option. Until she comes face to face with the true hell her people are experiencing under the new leadership.

Sold into the kingdom of dragon shifters, she chooses to compete in Ruination, a set of death duals, in order to gain her freedom. She must face her challenges head on if she wants to take her land back from those that ended her life.

Can she become the High Fae her people need?

This book was packed full of drama, a little romance, and a whole lot of action/fighting. I have to say it has been a while since I read a book such as this one. I get giddy like a little girl when I read anything Fae.

Desolation is part of a book set that was release on July 10 ( yes, that recent). Shades of Fae is a box set that is available on Amazon for .99. Yes! You have read that right! .99.

Book Review: The King’s Fate by Rissa Blakeley

I have posted a review of this book before a few years ago on my other blog, which I am not using anymore. The King’s Fate is not the normal paranormal (or supernatural?) book you would read. It has Succubi, Incubi, Vampires, and even an Angel.


In a world where Fae and Vampire will forever be at odds, a Vampire wins the crown, ruling the Fae Realm for the first time in history.

An Incubus, Leolin Kyffin, and his barren Succubus, Louise Bach, plot to end King Zachariah Orsova’s life, allowing them to rule the Fae Realm.

Through Louise’s encouragement, Leolin walks into a female Vampire’s dream and mates with her, breaking Zachariah’s law. His hope is to create what he thinks will be the most powerful half-breed known to the Realm.

When Zachariah kills the Succubus, Leolin vows revenge, sacrificing his half-breed son, Monty Saxon, and using him as a pawn to tear out the King’s heart, hoping to make him feel the pain of death while living.

When Leolin walks into Zachariah’s dreams, he fills his mind with unimaginable thoughts and desires. Doing the same to Monty, he secures his devious plot, patiently waiting for the precise moment Zachariah and Monty will be brought together as one.

The choices Leolin makes all add up to delivering a fate worse than death to his half-breed son and the King of the Fae Realm. Will Leolin avenge the murder of Louise? Will Zachariah and Monty survive, or will they be left suffering in the end?

Not going to lie . . . I was routing for Leolin until I started seeing the relationship between Zachariah and Monty. Zachariah has more love for his Vampires and for Monty (who he does know is half-breed), than Leolin does for anyone in general. Now, I am rooting for Monty more than anything. The book does leave a HUGE cliff hanger, which brings on Book 2 of the Corvidae Guard books The King’s Destiny. I rate it 5/5.
