Synopsis


“I am Uriel: The Harbinger of Chaos, The Keeper of the Gates, The Begetter of Life, The Dam of The Ends, and I’m coming to take what is mine!”

The clash with Baza and his angels had demonstrated to Ariel that Earth (Apkallu) is not the safe heaven she hoped it would be, and it is only a matter of time before she is hunted and dead.

The only way to survive is to accept her destiny and to fight back.

But upon her return to Uras, Ariel is rejected in her own domain and has to suppress the revolt against her reign. The angels refuse her and her lead, abandoning her and Uras in favour of another ruler.

She knows that without an army of followers she won’t stand a chance against Baza or Mik’hael, so now she needs to go into the most unexpected places to find it.

My Review


Harbinger is the third instalment in this addictive and heavenly quadrilogy (a four book series – that means we’re lucky enough to get another incredible read after reading Harbinger!). Heavenward is the first instalment of the Celestial Creatures Series, and the first book that had me instantly hooked onto the Celestial Creatures Series. Why not check out my review of Heavenward?, and don’t forget to check out my review of the second instalment Hallow.


I’ve been left wanting more ONCE again after reading one of Olga Gibbs amazing books…I was left speechless after putting down Heavenward, and left even more speechless after getting to the end of Hallow. And after reading Harbinger, I’m left the same. More speechless than the last.

I’m not sure how Olga has manage to do it yet again but she has left me speechless and hanging on the edge of my seat wanting to read Halo already! And it was a no brain-er to give Harbinger its more than deserved 5 stars.

From page one of Harbinger you are drawn into the chaos that is Ariel’s life, fighting for the life that was thrust upon her, a life she now has to learn to navigate through while saving those close to her. Harbinger is a short but just as action packed and full of surprises as Heavenward and Hallow.


Her return to Uras was less than welcoming for Ariel. With most of her army against her, Rafe seemingly loosing control of his sanity, caring for her younger sister Jess while trying to control her own inner turmoil, it doesn’t look as though Ariel’s life is about to become any less complicated or chaotic.

Harbinger By Olga Gibbs – Book Review by Littletinkablee.com

Without an army at her side Ariel knows she will never stand a chance in a fight against Baza or Mik’hael and time has never been on her side. How do you win back an army that doesn’t see you as an equal let alone a leader?

Preparing for battling is going to test Ariel in ways she has never been tested before and with her attention split between a torn Rafe and beloved little sister Jess. Gaining her army back is just the first of her battles.

But as always Ariel isn’t one to give up nor is she someone who backs down when life gets tough. Too much is riding on her, she can’t give up just because most of her army has hate for her and for what she once used to be. Figuring out how to convince a bunch of arrogant angels to follow her lead is just the first of her battles.


Whenever I open one of Olga Gibbs books I am instantly sucked in the mind of Ariel and the new world she’s found herself in. Olga manages to capture Ariel’s character and paint her in a certain light while still allowing room to grow and change through each book.

Ariel is a young girl who like many young girl makes a lot of mistakes however Ariel is placed under a lot of stress and responsibility that she’s constantly aware is hanging over her head.

It’s exciting seeing Jess’s character come more to life in Harbinger. fascinating to find out how Rafe’s new change affects his relationship with Ariel.

As in any young woman’s life there are potential love interests, there are everyday problems/emotions that Ariel has to deal with or figure out and fight through. Personally I’m team Rafe (there’s just something about his loyalty that’s attractive about his character) but have to say that Sam’s character is somewhat…arrogant, intense and interesting.

Harbinger by Olga Gibbs – Book Review by Littletinkablee.com

With a memorising and beautiful cover, you are instantly drawn to Olga Gibb’s book Series ‘The Celestial Creatures’ and once you’ve opened it up, after you’ve flipped over that beautiful book cover and dive into the first chapter you will find yourself instantly addicted to this well-crafted, beautifully written series.

As much as I enjoyed reading Harbinger, as much as I am looking forward to reading the final book to the Celestial Creatures (Halo), I am also very much dreading coming to the end of this phenomenal dark fantasy series full of adventure, emotion, turmoil, danger, challenges and a new world with angels that I am going to be sadden to see the end of. However, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and we’re lucky enough to be one book behind from the end.

Harbinger is an absorbing, fast-paced, action-packed book that will have you absorbed from the very first page. Olga Gibbs world for Ariel is as dangerous and gruesome as it is magical and beautiful.

Harbinger is a short, well-written fast-paced book that will leave you hanging on the edge of your seat. Olga’s writing style is unique, engrossing and easy-to read, with her unique writing skills she is able to transport her readers into Ariel’s world, allowing us to feel and experience what Ariel is going through. You really feel as though you are apart of her whirl-wind thrilling and intense adventure.

I’d forever recommend the Celestial Series to everyone and anyone I know, as I believe this is one fast-paced, spellbinding, action-packed and Intense series is a series that anyone can get into and enjoy. This is an unforgettable series you don’t want to miss out on!

Synopsis

Death Bringer is the second book in The Chronicles of Nova Morgan trilogy. 

Nova may have won the fight for her freedom, but she’s far from won the war. Journey beside her, Ruth and Chaplin as they leave the gritty streets of Victorian London behind and immerse themselves in the magical living realm of Hindra. 

In a world where dying isn’t forever and living isn’t easy, they’re about to unearth all manner of secrets and lies. Their mission seems clear, infiltrate the Council Chambers and free the captive, Detective Maximus Steele, bringing down The Righteous Ones as they go, but time is moving fast and as Nova comes to realise, time is running out. 

From street-worker to rebellion leader, is her path one of greatness, or has it simply been paved by someone or something, far greater than her? Like pieces on a chess board, is Nova just a pawn in someone else’s game.

*Content warning – Contains adult themes including; Sex, Drug use, Profanity and Violence.*

Before I get into my review I would like to state that I, along with other participates of this incredible Blog Tour – Death bringer, were gifted a free copy of this novel in return for an honest review. All thoughts and all opinions on this blog tour are our own. (I hope by now that you all know that I would never review a book I didn’t enjoy myself or didn’t believe my viewers would enjoy it either. Nor, would I rate a novel high if I didn’t actually feel that, that’s what it deserves).

My Review

Just like the first one I have to give Death Bringer it’s well deserved 5-stars. Kelly has once again done it, she’s done something few of us can only dream of achieving…Creating another incredible novel, this follow up to Cherry Nova deserves it’s full 5 out 5 start review. Just like in ‘Cherry Nova’ we are instantly drawn into the first page of ‘Death Bringer’, Instantly snatching your attention, until you are lost to the real world and planted into the new world Author Kelly-Marie Pollock has so brilliantly created.

Noah’s gone, Soul is dead, Nova’s memories are back, and the only thing on her mind is revenge.

From being known as ‘Cherry’ – working at Lady Jaine’s Brothel on the streets of Victorian London, to becoming the ‘Lady of Death’ is not something Nova ever intended. Chasing after one of the people who saved her when she needed it most was also not on her ‘to do’ list. But when other beings start to play with your life like a chess piece on a game board, you have no choice but to take the punches to get what you want. After all, they say nothing worth fighting for is easy, love is blind, and hell has no fury like a woman’s scorn…and Nova is one woman who has dealt with more scorn than most could ever take.

Cherry Nova is the first instalment in ‘The chronicles of Nova Morgan Trilogy, set in Victorian London. Death Bringer is the second instalment from ‘The Chronicles of Nova Morgan Trilogy (a three part book series) Where, Kelly takes us from our known Victorian London world and leads us into a whole new realm that holds different rules. Ruled by a council that are as happy to hand out a punishment/banishment as a kid would be receiving candy, Nova knows her mission is no easy task. Things are going to get messy, crazy and overwhelming.

Everything seems more chaotic now, than it ever did before. With Detective Max missing, stolen from them by the monsters who have made their very existence the deadly nightmare that it has become, a new army to lead and her own emotions to manage, life for Nova is about to become a whole lot more hectic and it’s only the beginning.

Taken captive in the Hindra realm, Nova is willing to do whatever it takes to bring back detective Max, even if that means raising an army and walking through the gates of Hindra. With the help from those whose lives were affected by Noah, Nova is able to successfully raise the army she needs with the help of a drug dependence warlock – Chaplin, an old dock worker – Bucky and her trusted banished witch friend – Ruth. Death Bringer is filled with more action, more excitement, suspense and more surprises than what was hiding throughout the first instalment, which I truly didn’t expect or think possible after finishing Cherry Nova.


Reading, Cherry Nova, I was instantly hooked onto this new, exciting and phenomenal series. I was a young teen when the vampire craze started and I can safely say I have read more than my fair share of vampire fiction. I was pretty sure I’ve read it all…until I stumbled across Cherry Nova. Being sucked into Nova’s life as though I’m a front seat passenger, it was fascinating to watch Nova’s struggle, confusion, hardships,and new friendships. It’s been even more fascinating and exciting to be able to watch as Nova’s character continues to grow into a person she could only ever hope of dreaming of being in her old life.


Death Bringer picks up exactly where Cherry Nova left off, instantly thrown into another action packed scene, I knew instantly that Death Bringer was going to have me sitting on the edge of my seat while reading this new thrilling novel. With twists, turns and revelations no one saw coming, this is one vampire book that will leave you reeling while wanting more.

Death Bringer by Kelly-Maire Pollock

Kelly has an incredible mind, the world in which she has managed to create and express into words is beyond amazing. I wasn’t able to put this book down once I picked it up, spent a whole night awake reading this because I just HAD to find out what happened, page after page. It’s an instant mind gripper.

If you love a little twist on vampire fiction, love a little mystery, love a little romance, action and open-mouthed cliff hangers then I wholly recommend you look up Cherry Nova and Death Bringer by Kelly-Marie Pollock and buy both as once you’ve read one, you’ll be dying to read the next.

The Girl The Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

I had actually received this book a while ago but due to my massive and forever growing TBR pile, deadlines, blog stuff, business (what I’m hoping will turn out into a business) stuff and life, it’s been a little difficult to find the time to get around to reading these days.

However, I have finally managed to find the time to pick this beautifully covered book up and…. well let’s just say I give this book an easy 4/5 stars.

“Eye of the gods. Give me sight”

Adrienne Young – Author of: The Girl The Sea Gave Back

The Girl the Sea Gave Back

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a truthtongue. Her own home and Clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Swell are divided. should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound powers? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again – a home.

My review


I want to start by saying just how beautiful & memorising the cover of this book is, try as I might, I can’t help but be drawn to a flawlessly elegant covered book!

The Girl the Sea Gave Back, book review, book reviewer, book blogger, review, book lover, Adrienne Young
The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young – Book review by littletinkablee

Truthtongue’s have the ability to cast the rune stones, allowing them to know the future just from reading the stones and Tova just so happens to be the only truthtongue to live among the Svell Clan, a place she has never truly felt at home.

Believing her people had sacrificed her to the Gods and that the sea had carried her to where the Svell Clansmen lived. Quickly releasing her “gift”, the Svell people use Tova’s gift of reading the rune stones to tell them the fate of their loved ones – the fate of their clan.

When there is suddenly threat of war ahead, the Svell leaders turn to Tova and her gift for answers, unknowingly setting in motions that would forever change the fate and outcome of not just her but everyone around her.

With the leaders within the Svell clan begin to divide themselves for the first time in generations – some wish to keep the peace with their allied clans, whilst others are head strong for war.

As the leaders waste precious time debating what is best for their clan, Tova encounters a handsome man who just so happens to belongs to the Nadhir Clan.

For reasons unknown to them, they instantly experience a strong sense of familiarity with one another but as hard as they try, they can’t seem to recall or understand why…

Once, Tova, decides to spare his life she then begins to question herself and her place among the Svell clans people and whether she even wanted to carry out their demands.

“War is easy. His words echoed in my mind.”

Will Tova ever find herself the home she so longingly dreams of? Will she be able to find the strength within herself to be able to change the fate of the clans?

All things you can find out, when you read this phenomenal book for yourself!

My thoughts


The Girl the Sea Gave Back, is the new standalone novel in “The sky in the deep series and is written from the first person perspective of both Halvard and Tova, as well as a few interesting and informative flashback chapters written in the 3rd person perspective.

Tova is an engrossing and layered character who comes off a little emotionally closed off and not just because of her gift of being a truthtongue.

Tova has been through more than most could probably handle, having had such an unsure and rocky upbringing, while trying to fit into a clan who makes their distaste for her very much known.

Tova is more than capable of handling a bow and arrow and truly begins to open herself up and reveal more of who she is after meeting Halvard.

Halvard (I found out) is a character from Adrienne Young’s first standalone novel ‘Sky in the Deep’ who is part of the Nadhir clan and whose character back story I couldn’t say I fully understood due to having read Sky in the Deep (which I have every intention of remedying soon!).

I really enjoyed reading from Tova’s POV because it really allowed me to connect with her character and her story more, however, I don’t believe that it could have worked or would have worked as well without the POV of Halvard, which I too really enjoyed.

I found the flashbacks did help shed a little light on both Tova’s and Halvard’s history before the events of this book took place which I did find to be rather helpful even if it doesn’t really reveal much otherwise and with that in mind as previously stated I plan to read, ‘Sky in the Deep’ in the hopes of understanding, ‘The Girl the Sea Gave Back’ in a different and more informed light.

The Girl the Sea Gave Back does start off as a lightly slow-paced novel that on a few occasions I did find myself almost loosing my interest/attention, however, halfway through the novel the pace did start to puck up/speed up and as it did, I found myself unable to put the book back down!

The Girl the Sea Gave back didn’t hold much action, which I honestly didn’t mind, I didn’t feel as though it took away the magic or thrill of reading through this mystical novel.

I found this standalone novel to be a incredibly intriguing read and I have to say that I loved the magical touch that the runes provided in this captivating novel. I was blown away by the fantastic and gripping writing quality as well as being left hang of my seat during one of the battle scenes. Adrienne Young beautiful writing style and talent for drawing her readers in has me excited for what she has in store for us next!

Blood Awakens by Jessaca Willis

And so it’s time for me to FINALLY release my review of this spectacular debut book ‘Blood Awakens’ Book 1 in the Awaken quartet by the equally wonderful Jessaca Willis.

True to the title of her book, Blood Awakens follow the stories of a few individuals fighting and trying to survive in a panic-stricken world where everyone runs on anxious thoughts and unexplained fear, where the strong stay strong and the weak get killed. A world where the different are more than feared, they are targeted, targeted by terror-stricken and frightened people.

Blurb


People called Sean a blood guide, though he never fully understood why. As far as he knew, he could hear heartbeats and heal people. It wasn’t until he walked in on his brother’s brutal murder that he learned of the darker nature of his power: blood speaks to him, and he to it. With a simple song, he can command it to do whatever he wants, and in that moment, he showed his brother’s murderers no mercy. Now Sean must fight to keep his inner demons in check and his path to redemption begins with the establishment of sanctuary for people like him, people with powers, the Awakened.

Graciela is one of many who did not Awaken, but she’s watched as her brother’s power as an Empath—the ability to sense other’s emotions—has brought him to the brink of death. Together, they set across Central America in search of a cure, or at the very least, safety. What they find is a sanctuary called Hope, the same one Sean governs.

But they soon discover that even from within the compounds of the sanctuary, no one is safe. Not when there are people in the world with unimaginable power and insatiable bloodlust.

(Readers Note)
This book is “New adult” fantasy, with moderate violence, and one or two mild curse words, but otherwise appropriate for mature teenagers and older. There is no sex or drugs in this book.

Book Notes/Details


If you are looking for a “New adult” dark fantasy read with mystery, love, loss, lies, heartache, high emotions with a touch of magic and post-apocalyptic drama then this is one book you are going to want to pick up and never put down!

Blood Awakens is the first debut novel by the incredible Jessaca Willis, the first instalment of the ‘Awaken Quartet’ series.

About the Author

Jessaca is a fantasy writer, with an inclination towards the paranormal, dystopian, dark, and horror sub genres.

Growing up in the 90’s and early 2000’s, Jessaca spent her free time heavily immersed in books and shows such as Harry Potter, True Blood, The Sword of Truth/Legend of the Seeker, and Merlin, so much so that at one point she truly believed fantasy worlds were real (maybe she still does). Her passion for the unimaginable and the magnificent grew, leading Jessaca to a career in fantasy writing, with an inclination toward the dark, horror, paranormal, and dystopian/apocalyptic sub-genres.​

Before she realized being an author was more than her own fantasy though, she was a wandering college student who believed in making the world a better place. She studied social work for her undergraduate and graduate degrees, and participated in a number of study abroad programs that led her to countries such as Guatemala, Italy, and Bolivia. So that her studies don’t become entirely useless, Jessaca draws heavily from her experiences abroad and from her education in human development, social institutions (race, gender, class, sexuality, etc.), mental health, and family roles, to incorporate into her novels and short stories.​

Jessaca is a self-proclaimed nerd who loves cosplay, video games, and comics. She grew up and still lives in Portland, Oregon, where she resides with her partner and their fur- and human-babies.

Blood Awaken by Jessaca Willis

For me the first chapter of a book is everything, especially as lately I find myself more easily distracted now than I was back in my younger days of reading.

And I have to say that during the first chapter of Jessaca’s debut novel I found myself fully immersed into Sean’s life, hook, line and sinker.

Blood Awaken By Jessaca Willis

During the first chapter of Blood Awakens we are sucked into the mind and thoughts that is Sean as he makes his way home from being fired under injustice circumstances. He receives a frantic and confusing phone call unaware that that would be the start of bigger changes for him and his brother, life would never be the same for, Sean again. Through his thoughts we are able to imagine the world that he is living in, a world that feel much like the dark ages but with technology, a world where people act irrationally and impulsive. Full of fear and hate for the unknown, we really get to see the injustice world that the “Awakens” have no choice but to endure.

From the start this book had my emotion on the fray! The way that Jessaca was able to use incredible and engaging style of writing that helped draw her readers into her book and into the life of the characters she had built and gave life to.

Blood Awaken by Jessaca Willis

Blood Awakens gives you a very realistic and post-apocalyptic view on what the world around us would be like if people had suddenly started to “awaken” without prompt.

Of course this book isn’t all about Sean and his tragedies in life but also the trials and struggles of other Awakened and non-Awaken (people who haven’t woken into their power) people such as Graciela who is fiercely loyal to the Awakened, even though she is one of the “non-awakened”, though I’m sure that her brother being one of them has had a help in swaying her beliefs in what is right, what is wrong, who is dangerous and who is not.

Blood Awaken by Jessaca Willis - book - books - kidnle - ebook - YA - Young Adult - Book blogger - review - book review - book lover - reader
Blood Awaken by Jessaca Willis

But having to watch her beloved brother live and suffer with his “gift” of being one of the Awakened has taken its own toll on poor Graciela. All she wants is a safe place for her and her brother to live out her days but with the world so caught up in their own terror, a safe place is few and far.

Blood Awakens takes you along on a suspense filled journey, with strong elements of family, loyalty, survival, drama and action, love and loss, magic and wonder that left me wanting more and kept me turning page after page! (or more accurately for me it kept me swiping on my kindle to read more!)

Blood Awaken by Jessaca Willis

This wasn’t like anything I have read before and I loved it for that reason!

All the characters in this novel are extremely well written and engaging. Giving you a little glimpse each time into their lives, their thoughts and feelings, I truly felt as though I was living in a post-apocalyptic world where anyone could turn on you in a second if you were “Awakened”, where I truly experience the irrational fear to the unknown.

Jessaca’s brilliant word building skills are able to transport you into her book and into the lives of her characters.

For me Blood Awakens gets a 5/5 star rating.

April Update

I am incredibly aware that I have slowed down massively with my blog progress and keeping on top of posts and I really am sorry for that however my life is crazy and unpredictable at times and my head is even more so.

I’ve had a lot of opportunities brought my way and a lot of exciting ideas I want to get started on and sharing with you guys! My biggest problem I have when I start getting ideas is it’s never one or two and I have a really hard time slowing down my thought train and being able to pick out a coherent thought, so I’m usually spending a week or two stressing and trying to get my thoughts into place so I can actually get cracking on some of these ideas.

I’m really bad with time management although I have been working really hard on changing that and my old motto “Better late than never”. With that being said, I have a few things planned and almost ready for you guys to read through, I thought I’d just give a little update on what to expect and around the dates you should expect them.

  • I have an author Interview with the one and only amazing Olga Gibbs
  • I will then be realising my long awaited review on Heavenward
  • 10th April I’ll be posting my experience doing yoga for a year
  • 16 April I’ll be posting ‘baking cakes with Cait’
  • 23rd April I’ll be posting ‘Adventure with the kids’
  • 23th April I’ll be posting ‘Mine and Dan’s small adventures’
  • 20th April I’ll be releasing my review on Magic Pie a children’s book written by @Robyn_Embrey
  • 30th April starts the Moxie blog tour!
  • 1st of May starts the Hallow blog Tour!
  • 2nd May I’ll be releasing my review on Moxie
  • 4th May I will then be releasing my review on Hallow!
  • 6th May I’ll be posting my first update on how I’m getting on with @Campnanowrimo for the first time!
  • 13th May I’ll be doing a post called ‘my yoga music’
  • 17th May I’ll be doing a post on the different type of yoga there is out there
  • 20th May I’ll be releasing my post on the different types of eating disorder there are out there.
  • I’m also currently in the middle of attempting to write my first ever children’s book!
  • 24th May I’ll be writing another post on Anxiety and living with it
  • 27th May, ‘A message to those who have care for an anxiety sufferer’
  • 31st May I’ll be writing a post on depression.

Now I do have a LOT more things planned than that including the release of my anxiety candle range and more exciting things. I also have other post ideas that I will probably be adding into the mix and I’ll probably end up changing a few of the titles on my posts.

I’m trying to be more regular in my blogging but I have taken on the @Campnanowrimo challenge and this will be my first year of doing it and so I’m a little all over the place trying to write, plan, stay active and healthy while staying on top of daily life, thinking of new creative ideas as well as reaching out to other bloggers/brads for guest posts and product testing.

Speaking of which, after May I am going to start posting product review (or in May if things speed up) and I’m super excited about that. I hope that this post has got everyone excited for my future posts and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or collaborations you’d like to do with me, You can click on the links below to be taken to my social accounts which you can use to contact me through or use my email: Littletinkable@Gmail.com
