Book Nerds review of The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire, by Cassandra Clare

Hey all my fellow Book Nerds out there! I recently finished City of Heavenly Fire, by Cassandra Clare.
Cassandra Clare is one of the greatest storytellers I have ever had the privilege of reading!! In The Mortal Instruments series, she created this amazing, intriguing world – coinciding simultaneously with our regular, everyday world. She has made us fall helplessly in love with Jace Herondale, our perfect male specimen. Jace is one of the best characters I’ve ever been introduced to. He’s witty, sarcastic, conceited, charming — everything, all wrapped up into one character. Clary Fray is perhaps one of the boldest female characters I’ve read in a long time. Strong, confident, intelligent, caring – Clary is that female character that we all can relate to in one way or another. Together, these two characters have walked us through an amazing tale of Nephilim, Angels, Demons, Vampires, Faeries, and Warlocks – heroes, heroines, villains, fallen heroes, rising villans, and so much more. In these books, you witness different varieties of beings set aside their differences and prejudices and work together for a common cause.
Get yourself a copy of The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire, and follow Clary and Jace one last time as they fight the largest, most important, and most brutal war of their lifetime against Clary’s own brother: Sebastian Morgenstern. Can Clary, Jace, Alec, Isabelle, Simon, and the rest of the crew pull together again to defeat Sebastian and his army of Endarkened Nephilim warriors? Or has Sebastian finally found the one way to defeat the Nephilim.
I had such a good time reading this last installment of The Mortal Instruments. It absolutely thrilled me how Cassandra Clare has expertly linked The Infernal Devices to The Mortal Instruments, while setting the stage for The Dark Artifices, coming Fall 2015. The character development throughout TID and TMI has been exceptional. I don’t doubt for a second that The Dark Artifices will be equally as amazing.
Cassandra Clare is, quite simply, one of the best authors of her time, to have created the world that she did, that keeps all of us craving more, and more, and more.
Book Nerds HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommends that you read both existing series: The Mortal Instruments — and — The Infernal Devices, if you haven’t already.
We are already dying to start The Dark Artifices.
Thank you, Cassandra Clare, for sharing your brilliance with the world.

Book Nerds review of Blue Notes, by Carrie Lofty

Blue Notes, by award winning author Carrie Lofty. A wonderful love story! Our main character is an unbelievably talented pianist. She was born Rosie Nyman, and came from a terrible childhood, with horrifying parents. As a child, she was subjected to so much negativity and darkness. She eventually was placed into the foster system, but managed to be one of the very few to luck out with amazing foster parents, who she later feels more connected to than she ever did her biological parents. In an effort to leave the past behind, she went so far as to change her name to Keeley. Despite her terrifying past, Keeley ends up moving forward with life (or trying to) and attends college at Tulane, where she excels as a pianist, pouring her heart and soul into her music. After eavesdropping on her practicing one day, Keeley meets the beautiful, brooding Jude, who happens to be New Orleans royalty. However, Keeley has no idea who he is, and brushes him off as she (quite literally) sprints away from him. Not long after, they meet again at a local club, where Jude dares Keeley to push her boundaries and her comfort level. Keeley rises to the challenge, making it a night she will never forget. Eventually Keeley finds out who Jude is, billionaire playboy whose parents died tragically, leaving him to run a massive corporation at such a young age. Jude consistently pushes Keeley and opens her up in ways she has never experienced before. All the while, Keeley struggles to hide her jaded past from Jude. When Keeley’s past catches up with her and she’s exposed as her original self, Rosie Nyman, will what these two lovers share be able to withstand the frenzy that follows?

Synopsis:

Olivia

Nate
He had always been in love with her since the first time he laid eyes on her. Then she dated his best friend and he figured that he lost his chance. When his best friend died he didn’t worry about himself, all he could think about was how she was hurting and could do nothing but be there for her.

She loves him. He loves her. Fate kept them apart and brought them together. He vowed to protect her no matter what. But what lengths will he go to to keep that vow? Will their love be strong enough to survive it all? Or could this be their happy ever after?

Excerpt:

“Canary, you have always been my forever since I saw you at that party. I’ve learned to be patient and wait for our time to come. I knew that once our time came it would be an epic romance of grand proportions. I believed that when I became the guy you deserved that you would be mine. I’ve worked so hard to become that guy and I promise you today that I may have my faults but I will always put you first. I vow that I will protect you, if you fall I will pick you up; I will be here by your side through good times and bad.
“I don’t know what I ever did in my life to deserve you but I won’t do anything to jeopardize us. What we have is something special, something everyone strives for, we are that couple that everyone is jealous of. I love you with every fiber of my being. I promise all of this and more until the day I die.”

About the author:

When C.L. King isn’t hard at work writing you can usually catch her reading, baking cookies, dancing to music, or just simply being crazy. She has a huge passion for baseball and the theatre. But her true nerd side comes out when she is doing math for fun. She has an old soul which is evident with her love of the 70s show Emergency. If you want to get on her good side bring her an Ocean Water from Sonic. Even though she tries to focus on one project at a time she always seems to be working on multiple projects at once, it’s a good thing that she is highly organized. Just don’t take her to a book store, you do that and you are likely able to spend hours browsing.
She loves to get to know people so connect with her and get the latest news and visit her using the following links:
