Is this really over? A different Jeaniene Frost but as great as ever. The Brightest Embers was a well worthy end to this trilogy and prove that nothing is carved in stone.

Thoughts

It took me some hours to get my head clear again, after finishing this book. The end was full of shocking moments and I wasn´t prepared for them at all.

Palace Of Glass – Die Wächterin by C.E. Bernard

Wednesday, May 02, 2018
The book is the debut novel of a German author who writes under a pseudonym. I stumbled across it while searching through the publisher’s new program for another book. Somehow the cover made me curious - who could resist such a fantastic cover? For sure not me. And the summary sounded so intriguing too, so why not ask for it?

Rea Emris sins. When she thinks, when she feels, when she touches someone. That´s what they tried to tell her. Because Rea grew up in a society where touch is illegal. Only at night Rea strips off her gloves to get into the ring. There, the petite woman defeats one overpowering opponent after the other in the fistfight. Her talent, however, does not go undetected: When the British secret service detects Rea, she is abducted to the one place from which she wants to fell at any cost, but cannot: to the king´s court in the glassy Buckingham Palace. There the inconspicuous fighter receives a dangerous assignment: As a bodyguard, she must protect the life of the heir to the throne. Prince Robin, however, is aloof, arrogant and has his own secrets. But what he suspects least: Rea himself is Robin´s biggest enemy … (personal translation)

Before we go into some details, I guess it is only fair that I tell you, that almost everyone in the German book blogosphere is thrilled over the moon about this novel.

One Foot In The Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Friday, April 20, 2018
Sometimes I wonder if I would have read this series at all when I look at the original covers and compare them to those, the German editions have. Not that the English covers aren´t good looking, but to be honest, they aren´t really my taste. On the other hand, I would have missed some great books, if I would have gone after that.

I was waiting for Never Let You Go to come out in Germany for many months. And it was worth the wait. The cover was one of the first things I´ve noticed. It kind of got me right away and it fits so well. Oh boy …

Right from the beginning, this thriller gives you an oppressive feeling. And the more pages I´ve read, the stronger it became.
