In My Dreams Review Blitz

Title: In My Dreams
Author: Cameo Renae
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Publisher: CHBB
Cover Design: Steph’s Cover Designs

Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours


The dreams were happening again.

It was something seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Hayes thought she’d outgrown. She didn’t want them anymore; detailed premonitions of how people would die.

One night, Lizzy’s worst nightmare occurs. She dreams of her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon discovers his car was found in a river, along with his lifeless body.

Confusion settles deep within when Michael appears alive in her dreams. He warns her, attempting to keep her safe from the very person who murdered him.

Awake, Lizzy must pull on her inner strength, not only to save herself, but also her friends whose lives are in danger.

In My Dreams is a story of trust, friendship, courage, and true love that lives beyond the grave.

My Review: In My Dreams captured me heart and soul. I was truly moved emotionally by this story. Walking through this book beside Lizzy made her seem so real I wanted to reach out and help her hold her like a friend would and shield her from the hell she would have to over come to reach her own inner peace. Seeing the the love she and Michael shared was absolutely beautiful. It was what I know true love to be. The two of them together was like the fourth of July and the magic of Christmas all together. I am still reeling from reading In My Dreams. The story continues to play over and over in my mind. The connection I feel with this story I know will not soon leave me. 
Cameo Renae thank you for In My Dreams you opened my eyes to a sight that not all have and my heart to those who benefit from the sight.

The Priestess Trilogy Blog Tour

Series- The Priestess Trilogy # 1
By- Melissa Sasina

Genre-  Fantasy/Romance

Shiovra has been named High Priestess of the village Tara, but she quickly finds herself hunted by the Milidh, a clan born of war and vengeance. With the safety of Tara at stake, it is decided that she is to seek aid from her betrothed, one she considers the enemy. At her side is Odhrán, a Milidh warrior sworn to protect her and determined to gain her trust. But their journey is fraught with peril and Shiovra learns that darkness lurks in the hearts of her own kin. Steeped in ancient Irish myth, this tale is spun of love, war, and DEFIANCE.

My Review: Defiance captivated me with it's beautiful cover and the blurb had my mind in a flurry of mystery and a need of finding what laid in wait on the pages in between. I am a big fan of historical genre and fantasy and Defiance and no shortage of either one! This story is so captivating and beautiful. Defiance wrapped me in ancient Irish myth and I could not have asked for anything better. Shiovra was a strong, responsible character I really admired her strength and dedication to becoming the High Priestess. Odhran he is sworn to protect Shiovra and he takes his duty very seriously but deep down he wants Shiovra to trust him. As this tale is spun an darkness lurks in those that are bent on stopping Shiovra. Wars will rage and love may be what conquers all. 
I am looking forward to discovering what Melissa Sasina  has in store for the rest of this series.


Title- Betrayal
Series- The Priestess Trilogy # 2
By- Melissa Sasina
Genre- Fantasy/ Romance

Shiovra, High Priestess of the village Tara, is set to wed one considered the enemy for the sake of her clan. Torn between her heart and her people, between love and duty, Shiovra decides her fate and faces the truth about Odhrán. Still hunted by both the Milidh clan and her own kin, she learns that not all enemies are quite what they seem. Loyalty is brought into question and power lost within enemy ranks in what shall ultimately lead to one thing: BETRAYAL.

My Review: Oh how the plot thickens when you add deceit betrayal. Who can Shiovra really trust and is the enemy really the enemy. As Shiovra sets out to decide between love and the duty of the High Priestess she realizes that some things are not as they seem and not all have her best interest at heart. As this story wove it's way through my head and heart the more involved I became.  Odhran at this point has my heart Shiovra's as well. Though Shiovra is betrothed to another as she sets out on the journey to her betrothed trusts come into question as do identities. Some have some explaining to do and some will lurk in the darkness of betrayal. 
I am enjoying Melissa Sasina's writing style and that she stays true to the word play that is true to the time era. This series is turning out to be a big winner for me. I'm not sure what awaits me in the next book but I am excited to find out!


Title- Eclipse
Series- The Priestess Trilogy # 3
By- Melissa Sasina
Genre- Fantasy/ Romance

Tensions escalate between two clans, threatening their fragile peace. On one side stand the Túath, on the other the Milidh. The prize: control of the land of Éire. Yet amidst this brewing conflict, another more dangerous threat looms. The village of Tara is ripped apart, not by war, but by the seed of betrayal as the priestess' own kinswoman, Gráinne, conspires to seize control. Enemies shall become allies and Shiovra is faced with a difficult choice, one that will ultimately engulf her world in an irreversible ECLIPSE!

My Review: I became entranced by Eclipse. I have fallen deeper into the web of a story that has been spun. Watching Shiovra  grow into a beautiful, strong, and powerful High Priestess has been awesome. Just as I thought things were finally going to be ok a darkness looms, war threatens to break out, and a betrayal so great comes at the hand of Shiovra's own kin. Answers don't come easy for Shiovra as choices are still left to be made. 
I am so fascinated with this series and am so glad I got the chance to read this series. Melissa Sasina has captured the essence of the language of an era and that of a High Priestess on the pages of this series. I fell into a true fantasy with a touch of history. Thank you Melissa Sasina for giving your readers a fantastic escape.


From Betrayal-

Subtle movement caught Odhrán’s attention; the muffled snap of a branch followed by the slight rustle of brush. He was not alone in his hunt. Ducking behind a tree, Odhrán drew his sword and listened once more. The movement came from his left. Slipping silently from one tree to the next, he followed the subtle sounds until he came up behind a man who walked slowly with bow and arrow ready in hand.
Moving swiftly, Odhrán slipped out from behind a tree and brought his sword up to tap the man on the shoulder with the flat of the blade.
The man stilled suddenly, dropping the bow and arrow before slowly bringing his hands up.
Odhrán shifted his hold on the sword, bringing the blade toward the man’s neck. “You are losing your touch, Kieran of the Neimidh,” he said, a grin twisting the corners of his lips.
“And you are as dangerous as ever, Odhrán,” replied the man with a strained chuckle.
Stepping around the man, Odhrán lowered his sword. “What brings you to Dún Fiáin?” he asked, returning his blade to its sheath before bending and returning Kieran’s bow and arrow.
Kieran ran a swarthy hand through his dark brown curls, his face weary. “Not to exchange pleasantries, I am afraid,” he replied, looking around. “Might we speak?”
Odhrán shook his head. “Not here,” he told the Neimidh man, eyes searching the trees around them. “Much has happened since our departure from Tara. There are hidden eyes in these woods.”
Kieran did not question his words, only nodded.
Glancing up into the tree branches high above his head, Odhrán added, “Eyes who have gone too easily unnoticed.”

Enchanted Revenge Blog Tour

Title- Enchanted Revenge
Series- Empyrean Chronicles # 1
By- Theresa M. Jones

Genre- YA Fantasy

When seventeen year old Lily finds her parents brutally murdered, leaving her broken and alone, she is determined to bring justice to the fairies responsible. Her quest leads her to infiltrate The Empyrean, the land of the Fae where terrifying creatures lurk in every shadow. But with a political rebellion mounting, bloody battles and foreign enemies stand in her way. Alec, a mysterious and secretive fairy, gradually becomes her guide and dear friend in the unfamiliar world, and restores her faith in love.

Disturbing secrets about her parent’s true identity are revealed, causing her to be more involved with the devastating fairy war than she can afford. Her vengeful mission becomes compromised and her growing romance with Alec wavers. She must conquer her fear of the unknown, ignore her grief, and overcome her growing list of enemies if she is to succeed in avenging her parents’ death. Or ever make it out alive.

Enchanted Revenge will appeal to fans of Jennifer L. Armentrout and Julie Kagawa.

My Review: I have just hit the jackpot fairies galore! I am in heaven! I am so excited about this book! Enchanted Revenge had my attention from the cover then it wrapped me in it's pages and gently laid me out at the very end leaving me in complete euphoria! Lily is a beautiful young girl who blossoms into this vibrant, reliant, gorgeous woman right before my very eyes watching her become this loving character was awe inspiring. Seeing the world she lives in and the places she went was so beautiful and made me wish to live in her world. Alec was a hoot! He is so fun and witty oh and did I mention handsome or some may say hot! He makes this journey a little less painful for Lily I think. I just loved being in their world and watching each character grow and overcome obstacles that weren't only hard but heart wrenching at times also. I so loved this book so much so that I will be getting book two! 
I seldom find books that speak to me from the front cover and grab my heart having never read the blurb. That is exactly what Theresa M. Jones has done.
