Blog Tour: The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May

Hey Everyone.

Today I have a review for you, The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May.

Blurb…

Rock star, River Jackson, is back in his hometown of Glastonbury to open a cocktail bar… and the locals aren’t impressed.
Seductive Georgina is proving too hot to handle; band mate, Angelic Alice, is messing with his heart and his head; his mum is a hippie-dippy liability; his school friends have resorted to violence – oh, and his band manager, Lennie, AND the media are on his trail.
But River is armed with a magical Mexican elixir which will change the lives of the Three Chosen Ones. Once the Mexican wave of joy takes a hold of the town, he’s glad he didn’t lose his proverbial bottle.
Pity he hasn’t taken better care of the real one…

Review…

Love, love, love this book. I read through it in 2 days and devoured the pages.

Isabella has such a gorgeous writing style, the flow from page to page makes reading such a pure pleasure. When I wasn’t reading The Cocktail Bar I was thinking about it.

The story itself is fantastic, such a great magical twist on story that would be entertaining in it’s own right.

All of Isabella’s characters, from the nice to the naughty are incredibly well written. Even some of the background characters will become your favourite ones, like Hayley.

I really did enjoy this book. I think people of any preferred genre would also love this book.

I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. In fact get me a Frisky Bison cause I may have to sit down and read it again.

Thanks for reading.

Book Tour: Ashael Rising by Shona Kinsella

Tour banner ASHAEL for JENNY

Hey Everyone.

Today I bring you a book tour for Ashael Rising by Shona Kinsella.

Blerb…

Ashael is a hunter-gatherer woman, apprenticed to Bhearra, the healer and spiritual leader of their tribe. The Zanthar are invaders from another world who extend their own lives by stealing the life-force of everything around them. They were last seen on KalaDene 200 years ago. They have returned, looking for The Vessel, a being prophesied to hold the life-force of the land. Iwan is a slave to the Zanthar, descendant of those taken as slaves the last time the Zanthar visited this world. He is sent out as a spy, while his mother is held hostage to ensure his compliance. When Ashael meets Iwan in the forest, neither realise that she is the one the Zanthar are looking for. The fate of KalaDene and all of its people rests on her shoulders.

Review…

I really really really really and really enjoyed this book. I loved everything about it. The characters, the world setting, the good/evil divide, just everything.

Ashael is the lead protagonist and we see the majority of the story through her eyes. Ashael is a character that I could instantly take too, she wasn’t over stated or understated and has strength right from the beginning which continues to grow and flourish throughout the book.

There are also aspects of the story told through the eyes of other characters, every single one telling their own version of events which make them hard to dislike.

Even the characters of Meegrum are good to hate and feed into their role perfectly.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It has action, adventure, magic, hate, love, despair and everything else you could possibly want.
