Book Review: Madame Lilly: The Time of Sanura Bk 3 by Dormaine G.

(I received this free ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Goodreads Summary: History always has a way of repeating itself

Madame Lilly journeys back in time to her great grandmother's era, the time of Sanura. Both women possess more than a kinship for they are each bound by harmful spirits whom they refuse to relinquish. By the hand of a mysterious being, Elijah, Lilly is transported into the past to witness the dark path Sanura chose that ultimately lead to her demise.

While in this era, Lilly feels the turmoil Sanura endured as a young girl. Even as she fights to deny her ability to see the non-living. But the more she refuses the sight, the more the dead seem to flock. And then a dreadful accident takes place forcing her to finally accept her once unwanted gift. She soon welcomes the dead.

Through Sanura's struggle of growing up an innocent child being forced to take on the burdens no one should undergo, she ultimately transforms into a frightfully powerfully woman. Lilly watches from afar, as Sanura grows more commanding with each act of wickedness, until her final downfall. Even then, Sanura refuses to surrender her bound spirits for they need her as much as she thought she needed them.

I have read three books by this author and I feel that every time she writes she gets better and better. In this story Lilly's great grandmother Sanura is the focal point in this story.  We go through this journey of the 1800s and how the lives of women and slaves were. Elijah sends Lilly in the past to see the life of her grandmother Sanura. Sanura and Lilly in my point of view are just alike.  Out of the three this one is my favorite. I really did enjoy reading this one a bit more than the others but don't get me wrong, they were all good. 

The writing was great. As I said, she gets better with every story.  It was a nice quick read and intense at the same time!!! 

I..Love..The...Cover! This book cover screams power all over the place. The cover itself alone would have me to pick up the book (Book judging. Don't hold it against me please.)

I can't wait to read more by this author. She is one of those authors that after you have read the previous works, and you find out that there is more coming,  you know that they are going to be good.

Book Review: The Prophecy bk3 By Madhuri Blaylock

I received this free book by the author in exchange for an honest review

Goodreads Summary: In Books I and II of The Sanctum Trilogy, Madhuri Blaylock took readers on a treacherous journey full of intrigue and corruption, horror and despair, as she wove the tale of Dev and Wyatt, the hybrid demon created to destroy The Sanctum and her lover, once a warrior for The Sanctum, now a member of the mysterious sect of Magicals known as the Ramyan. 

Their tale continues in Book Three: THE PROPHECY as battles wage, loved ones are lost, and the world seems on the brink of madness. 

Culminating in explosive horror, one is forced to ask: after all of the blood and torture and pain and death, can there be any room for hope and wonder and life and love?

This was a great way to end the series and it is bittersweet. I didn’t want this series to end. Every time I turned the page my excitement for the story grew. I did take my time to read it simply because I did not want it to end. I know a lot of us do that. LOL. From the twist, turns, and romance I was captivated by it all. When I finished the book I had to take a minute to gather my life back together LOL. I will miss this journey that Madhuri took me on with this series. 

The writing was soo good!!!!! God..this woman can write. It all flowed so good and perfect. It made you have all the types of feels in the right places. The writing kept getting better with each book. The emotional feelings between the characters were on point and your heart went out to them. With The Prophecy being the last book in the series I felt that it ended well. You can't read this series and not have yourself poured into it. 

I would have to say that even though I did love all three. I think the first one is my favorite in the series. 

My message to the author....Please, Please, Please keep writing!!!!!!! Work like this is why I fell in love with reading.
