#Review - A Stolen Crown by Kelsey Keating

Title: A Stolen Crown
By:Kelsey Keating
Genre: Fantasy
Release Date: January 17th, 2017
Publisher: Swanifide Publishing

Summary from Goodreads: A stolen crown. An unbreakable friendship. One big mess in the making.

When Princess Cecily Degalt travels south to wed a prince she's never met, she's ushered into a strange new world alongside her best friend and bodyguard, Rory Castille. With an MIA fiancĂ©, his handsome twin brother, and a kidnapping gone wrong, life in Myrzel isn't quite what Cecily expected. 

Rory will do anything to keep Cecily from harm--but when Rory's darkest secret comes between her and Cecily, the greatest danger to the princess might be Rory herself.

Torn apart for the first time, each girl will have to think like the other as she faces not only the darkness of Fangralee Forest, but a dangerous enemy closer to home.



Review: Although I haven't read the first book in this series, this didn't matter. Kelsey Keating brings you into a world where magic normal and princesses are sent to another kingdom to marry a prince they have never met. 

I was really intrigued by Rory and her super strength and and fighting skills. She was one bad ass chick. The princess was cool too. She was snarky and witty. I was really drawn to Tom from the beginning and rooted for Rory to fall for him.

The ending was a little confusing for me, with all the sudden killing and battles. I found that if I wasn't paying close enough attention, someone else died and it snuck up on me.

I can't wait to see what else Ms. Keating will put on paper. Three stars for A Stolen Crown.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
