Mini-Review

I assure you that you won’t regret reading this series. It is an amazing, awesome, and fantastic read. The cover and its summary immediately captured me. I thought, why not give it a try?🤷‍♀️ If I didn’t like it, I can always keep it down. I really love Abigail Swish, the main character. She is witty, smart, understanding, compassionate, loyal, and has many more admiring qualities. Everything about this series was amazing. It took me through a roller coaster of emotions. I felt everything the characters were feeling, be it frustration or happiness or betrayal or love.

I loved this series and would recommend it to every reader who loves the lovely combination of romance and fantasy.

Mini-Review

This series is for all the readers who want to sit and escape into the world of fantasy. I had heard great things about this series. And when I saw that it was available on Kindle Unlimited, I didn’t wait to read it. It is such an amazing series!! The way the author introduced us to the world, the narration, the writing style, the plot, the writing style was beautiful. Reading this series felt as if I was experiencing it along with the main character, Aurora. I loved the plot of the book. It had the exact amount of drama, action, romance, and suspense in it. There is only one thing that I didn’t like in this book. There were a few too many characters. Other than that, everything about this book is perfect

Also, there is a prophesy which says that he would either be the downfall or the salvation of Mount Olympus and the Gods. Who will win, Olympians or the Titans?

Mini-Review

This series was recommended to me by my friend. I had never tried this genre. And so I was a bit skeptical about this book at first. But indeed I enjoyed this series a lot. So much so that it went to my re-read pile. Reading this series felt like I was watching an HD movie. The movie that is playing in my mind and I am enjoying it. I could imagine every single thing that was written. And, this experience, was just beautiful and enjoyable. And I’m sure that you will enjoy reading this series too.

Suggestion: I would suggest that before reading this book you should read Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods by the same author, Rick Riordan. It will help you understand which god is which and what is their role.

Mini-Review

This YA fantasy series, Syrena Legacy, is a very interesting and humorous story with a good dose of romance in it. There is just the exact amount of romance needed, not too much, not too less. I had picked this book due to its cover. (Yes, Guilty😋 ) And its story has well turned out to be amazing. Well, lucky me! Another five stars read for me. It is very hard to say which is the best part of the series. Because this series is just perfect. From the plot to the story, to its characters, everything is just.. perfect. Once I had read the first part of this series, I just couldn’t wait to start and read the next part. There is never a dull moment in this series.

This series is the perfect mixture of romance and fantasy. I really enjoyed following the story of Emma and Galen. And you will too.
