Fantastic Read!

I received this as a free Author's copy and let me tell you other readers, that it's a fantastic read! There's lots of action, mystery, adventure and a slight hint of romance thrown in. All of the characters come to life and each have their own personalities; some expressing a little bit of language but I don't consider it profanity. In my opinion, it's the mentality of the characters which makes them relatable. The protagonist herself is witty, sassy and strong which you don't find in a lot of female characters. Especially warriors. She no way near a Clary but yet she's not some tough street girl either. From what I've read and gathered, she's very feminine in all aspects and it was a joy reading her sarcasm. And the demonic twist really adds something too! The growing relationship between the vampire Erik and herself was decently written and immediately you can tell there was something building there. The plot of the story was well written and thought out. I read a lot of fantasy and this one is definitely one on my list as a favorite. Look forward to reading books 2 and 3. I thank the author for this read!

Great continuation of a book series...

Okay, here's my review for book 2 of Yza-Dora's KEEPER OF LA TECLA series. I know it seems I'm partial but that's not the case. I've read lots of books as I stated before, and I don't particularly care for Erotica or Same Sex genres which is a breath of fresh air for me, in reading this young Author's work. However, I do have to say that the book is lengthy, being in 2 parts in one book, which the Author informed me of before review. The story smoothly continues without leaving a lot of question marks and gaps. There is a bit of blood and gore but it's decently written with just enough imagination. After all, the characters are thrown into an entirely different world that they're not used to so things get complicated and bloody. Despite the situation. The creatures that are described as the Boar-wolves are very descriptive and are easy to imagine but yet at the same time the Author creates a nightmarish beast that I wouldn't want to run into or have to fight. Yuck. Now, as the story progresses, you find the characters having to prepare themselves for war against an evil Necromancer that seeks to destroy Ravenstone for sinister purposes. I won't reveal those for you have to read the story for yourself. But, considering the Author is female, she did a pretty awesome job of describing the scenes of war and military strategies. I can tell, that a lot of research has gone into the story to make it realistic. My husband and daughter who's near the Author's age, have become avid readers themselves and they too, glimpsed at the pages and found it extremely interesting. I ordered a copy of each in hardcover format from Lulu to add to my shelves and they're beautifully designed. High gloss, beautifully bound and the paper quality is excellent. The book covers were designed by the Author herself and really capture the story's essence. Now, some might disagree that this series isn't considered YA but I say that's a load of crap because the series is for young adult as there's descriptive scenes and language, though not profanity. The only thing I can say more, is that Inkitt as great a site as it is for authors and readers alike, it doesn't allow visual symbols or fancy headings of which adds to this Author's work. The books I ordered have an insert cover image that's so beautiful as well as inspirational quotes and it's a shame Inkitt couldn't have provided them. Toward the ending of book 2, you find the protagonist in a difficult fight for her life and the love that's shared between herself and the male vampire Erik, is just absolutely beautiful. Their love story is nothing compared to Twlight's for Erik's not a love sick vampire but the thoughts of losing her and how the Author described his pain, was so touching that it brought tears to my eyes. Anyway, looking forward to reading book 3 of this series as well as her other books that are soon to come. It's been a while for me to really sit down and enjoy a book in its entirety and actually look forward to reading more of a series. I can promise you other readers, that if you enjoy vampires, lycans, magic, dragons, adventure, humor, and even demons and Jinn, you won't be disappointed. Unless, you happen to be one of those readers who's an Author themselves which can be a bit conflicting and more often, just a case of professional jealousy. And just one more thing too to add. The protagonist of the story, I have to say is my favorite character because she's a strong woman having to deal with everything that's unloaded on her shoulders, and yet she handles everything beautifully with strength and courage. She's a warrior (not necessarily physically in the beginning) but has that warrior spirit making her a combo of femininity and deadly possibilities. Which is by the way, really herself as I discovered the Author put herself into the story instead of creating one with her characteristics. So, what you read is what you get! :)
