Ebba-Viva Fairisles: Immortal Plunder Review

Blurb from Goodreads:

There are three types of people in the Exosian Realm—males, females, and pirates.

I’m a pirate. One with six overprotective fathers for a crew. And if I’m telling the honest truth, not just the pirate truth, having so many fathers is working pretty well for me so far.

When I’m caught eavesdropping on the pirates of Malice, they retaliate with violence, and my fathers become set on revenge. But simple payback cascades into shattering misfortune.

Unexplainable magical happenings and impossible creatures propel me toward a fate much darker than stealing plunder. A terrible beast drags forth horrible truths of my fathers’ pasts which call my entire life into question. Now, my sheltered upbringing is swelling into a furious storm that I must, for the first time in seventeen years, navigate without my crew.

An intense russet-haired landlubber seeks to help me. A savvy silver-eyed Malice pirate strives to hinder me. But the further I drift, the more I wonder—am I helping or hindering myself?

Can I stand on my own two feet to claim victory?

And if so. . .what will that victory cost?

Prepare to sail into a realm of gritty high-stakes adventure, swashbuckling characters, forgotten magic, and slow-burn romance. A story full of heart, with a large twist of humor, scroll up and one-click to discover this exciting new tale by USA Today Bestselling author, Kelly St Clare, today!

My Review:

Immortal Plunder is an absolutely fantastic read. It has everything one could want when it comes to a novel surrounding pirates. And it’s done in a manner that engulfs you so much that you feel as if you’re actually there with the crew. From the very first page you’re transported into the world created by Kelly St. Clare.

You feel Ebba-Viva’s frustration with other pirates as they belittle her six fathers. You feel her turmoil as things go awry and she must figure out what to do. You feel her stomach churn as she’s trapped in a carriage with a lady that just wants to change her into a ‘proper lady’. The writing is so beautifully done that you feel all the characters emotions with them and want to be by their side as they go on their journey throughout Immortal Plunder.

I highly recommend this novel and series to anyone that loves pirates. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Frogs & Fae: A Frog Prince Retelling (Tales of Fae) Book Review

37539441

Amazon

My Review:

Five Stars

I quite enjoyed this retelling of The Frog Prince. Each chapter left you craving the next and made this story hard to put down. And you couldn’t help but love the characters. In the beginning I was worried about some of Lillian’s choices as I feared Dylan to be mischievous. But as I kept reading my opinion of him changed greatly. The only character my opinion didn’t change on was uncle- he’s ruthless and cruel.

This was a fun novel to read with a different spin on the world of fame and I highly recommend it.

Author Interview with R.L Andrew

RLAndrew

  1. Where are you from? Shepparton, Victoria, Australia
  2. When did you first decide you wanted to be a writer? When I was a child.
  3. How long have you been writing? I’ve written short stories and poems since I was a kid but as only taken writing seriously for the last five years or so.
  4. What genre do you write? Science Fiction and horror. Occasionally others.
  5. What are you working on now? Editing the sequel to my first book ‘A Lunatic’s Guide to Interplanetary Relationships (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074YCZDK5) – ‘A Demigoddess’s Guide to Interplanetary Parenting’ before it goes to my Editor then Publisher in hopefully a couple of months and plotting/planning the third – ‘A Demigoddesses Guide to Inter dimensional InLaws’.
  6. What inspires you to write? Myself. I believe inspiration for me comes from planning, thinking, creating and hard work. I sit down everyday and write, always working towards a goal. I have to make sure I have what I’m going to write clear in my head before I do sit down. Then I put myself in the background of the scene and let it play out.
  7. Who is your biggest influence as a writer? It’s definitely been my Mentor/Editor and now Publisher Randall Andrews. He’s taught, encouraged, supported me and truly made the biggest difference to my writing life. He continues to do so.
  8. Do you have anything published? If so can you tell us a little about your latest publication? Aside from a number of short stories published in Anthologies internationally my first book ‘A Lunatic’s Guide to Interplanetary Relationships (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074YCZDK5) has been published by Ja-Col Publishing Inc.
  9. Where is your ideal writing spot? On my couch with a settee, my legs up and my macbook on my lap.
  10. Is there a routine you have to go through to get in the writing mood? I sit down, put myself in the scene and write. A lot of mental battle goes into that as I’m chronically ill. Everyday I wake up I do not want to get out of bed and have ever reason to feel that way. But I get nothing achieved with that state of mind. It doesn’t change my pain levels but it does change my mental health for the better – positively. Instead of wallowing while in pain, I’ve created – written books while in pain, something has come from it.
  11. As a writer, what is the biggest area you’ve struggled in? Commas. I totally suck at them, my editor will verify this lol. I work hard at figuring those out but I still seem to screw it up. I’ll get there eventually.
  12. Any advice for upcoming young writers? Be open to challenges, learning about the craft, and giving up any preconceived ideas you have about being a great writer right off the batt. Like most things it takes work, effort and learning. Don’t talk about doing it, don’t think about doing it, just do it.
  13. What has worked for you? Setting realistic goals for myself and working towards them. There’s always a million excuses for not finding time to write each day but you only need one reason to do it and you’ll achieve great things over time.
  14. Other than writing, what do you do? I love horror movies, gardening and cooking when I”m able to. Funnily enough I’ve created some of my most delicious meals while hunched over and shallow breathing. It’s amazing what you can do if you push yourself. Though i realise you probably shouldn’t always do that!
  15. Have you written anyone you know into your novels? If so, why were they important to that particular story? Oh heck yes. They might not be directly named but everyone I’ve ever known, met or encountered shows up somewhere in my books. Depending on what type of people they are is what type of characters they end up as.
  16. Do you have any upcoming events (release parties, giveaways, etc.) or book releases coming up? If so feel free to provide the links. My first book has been released as an ebook and should be released in paper back within the next couple of weeks. I am doing a few in person book launches where I live but it’s too far for you guys to come.
  17. Is there anything else you would like to share with us? The only person that stops you from doing something is you. And if you are dead set on achieving something nothing will stop you.

Some Fun Questions:

  1. What’s your favorite line from any movie? They’re here.
  2. If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction? A disaster movie with plenty of action and dark comedy.
  3. Who would you want to play you? Claudia Karvan – she’s an Australian Actress I’d also love to play my main character in a show or movie.
  4. What is your favorite quote? This too shall pass – because it does. It’s inevitable.
  5. Name 5 favorite movies. John Wick, Selfless, The Conjuring, Evil Dead (original) and thirteen ghosts.
  6. Why? There are too many reasons but I can watch them over and over and not get sick of them.
  7. Are you spring, summer, fall, or winter? Please share why.Spring and early summer. I hate the cold. Mostly because I have a small build and it’s impossible to get warm enough. And you can’t spend much time outdoors when it’s cold and wet.
