Hi everyone! Last week I received my Blind Date – Paranormal Romance box* from BookCase.Club! My review is below, but I’m doing something a little different this time. Since the books I received this month are actually part of two series (book 5 and book 9, respectively), I’ll be giving the synopsis for the first books in each series instead of the synopsis of the books I received. Because, you know, spoilers 🤫 (…I’m not sure how I feel about that emoji… Anyway.) See below for the synopses for book 1 of the Quantum Gravity series and book 1 of the Fever series. Also! This month will be my last month as a BookCase.Club rep. Be sure to check out the BookCase.Club website for the different themes available. Remember, you can use my coupon code Bedtime15 for 15% off your purchase on any theme 🙌
I received Down to the Bone, book 5 in the Quantum Gravity series by Justina Robson. The synopsis for book 1, Keeping it Real, is below. (Synopsis from Barnes & Noble)
The Quantum Bomb of 2015 changed everything. The fabric that kept the universe’s different dimensions apart was torn and now, six years later, the people of earth exist in uneasy company with the inhabitants of, amongst others, the elfin, elemental, and demonic realms. Magic is real and can be even more dangerous than technology. Elves are exotic, erotic, dangerous, and really bored with the constant Lord of the Rings references. Elemental are a law unto themselves and demons are best left well to themselves.
Special agent Lila Black used to be pretty, but now she’s not so sure. Her body is more than half restless carbon and metal alloy machinery, a machine she’s barely in control of. It goes into combat mode, enough weapons for a small army springing from within itself, at the merest provocation. As for her heart, well, ever since being drawn into a game by the elfin rockstar Zal (lead singer of The No Shows), who she’s been assigned to protect, she’s not even sure she can trust that any more either.
This month’s box also included Feverborn, book 9 of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series. The synopsis for book 1, Darkfever, is below. (Synopsis from Barnes & Noble)
MacKayla Lane’s life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she’s your perfectly ordinary twenty-first-century woman. Or so she thinks…until something extraordinary happens.
When her sister is murdered, leaving a single clue to her death – a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone – Mac journeys to Ireland in search of answers. The quest to find her sister’s killer draws her into a shadowy realm where nothing is as it seems, where good and evil wear the same treacherously seductive mask. She is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn how to handle a power she had no idea she possessed – a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae…
As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her eerie move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho, a man with no past and only mockery for a future. As she begins to close in on the truth, the ruthless Vlane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. And as the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book – because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control of the very fabric of both worlds in their hands…
Admittedly, I was a bit bummed to have received books that fall later in their respective series. However, I do appreciate learning about new series in general, so I’ll have to look these up in further detail.
A big thank you to the BookCase.Club team for this month’s box! ❤️ Happy Holidays, everyone!
*As one of their reps, I received this box for free so that I could share a content preview as well as a coupon code with all you lovely folks
