The Rebel Trap by Lance Erlick Blog Tour {Review + Giveaway} #RebelTour

Title: The Rebel Trap
Series: Rebel #2
Author: Lance Erlick
Publication Date: October 1, 2014
Genre: YA Sci-Fi

Voices in 16-year-old Annabelle Scott’s head aren’t God or signs she’s going mad—yet. Despite being a Mech Warrior recruit, she rebels against her post-Second Civil War society by not only refusing to kill Morgan, a boy she’s attracted to, but also helping him escape.

Annabelle’s commander gives her auditory implants and contact cams for an undercover assignment to investigate her corrupt police captain. Morgan hacks the implants to plead for her help in freeing his brother. As a pawn in a bigger game, can she find a way to help Morgan and discover the link between an attempted assassination of her adoptive mom, the geek institute, and her police captain without falling into a trap, being exiled and separated from family, or getting herself and those she cares about killed?

The Rebel Trap was written as a standalone story, but also follows Annabelle’s adventures from The Rebel Within.

Annabelle Scott has voices in her head. No, she is not going crazy. One of them is her military commander and the other is a boy that wants her to help his brother escape. In order to help his brother escape she will have to risk her life and her families. Annabelle is not sure it is worth the price. Not to mention she is on a case that she can’t tell anyone about, even her sister whom she shares everything.

Annabelle has to complete her top secret mission, protect her family, and possible save a boy. What’s a 16 year old to do? Get into trouble of course. :D

I haven’t read the previous books in the series, but I read that it could be read as a standalone and jumped at the chance. I loved an adventure packed mystery. I knew I didn’t trust a couple of people but some of them were tricky. Annabelle has absolutely nothing to work with since she couldn’t tell anyone what she was doing. She did a pretty good jog getting around though. One thing that bothered me though was that she kept using the same excuse over and over. I wished she would have been a little more creative instead of saying she was to do her best all the time.

The book is told in multiple points of view which took me awhile to adjust to, but I really liked knowing what everyone was thinking and doing. There was a lot going on but I felt like I could keep up.

I found this book to be unique since I haven’t read any book about women being the supreme sex. It was interesting to learn how all of it happened and how the men are treated now. I don’t agree with the men being abuse but a big heck yeah to women rule! Lol I can’t wait to see what mischief Annabelle will get into next.

Overall: The Rebel Trap was very entertaining and I recommend to any one that likes a good top secret missions.

3.4 stars

She won the scary story contest for the school newspaper. It is one story she still has tucked away for memories. Her teacher told her she could be anything she wanted and that she had a talent for writing, being creative and drawing people into her stories. M.R. took that to heart and continued to write, although mostly in secret until recent years.
She lives in Nevada and enjoys life with her family - wrangling her four kids, setting traps in the house with toys for unsuspecting victims (aka, her husband) and writing down all her crazy and fun stories.

Witch Hunt #6
      How could she end a four-hundred year old curse if she was married to some guy she didn’t know? Maybe that’s why it was called the Curse of the Lonely Witch? Okay, so it was call the Legend of the Lonely Witch, but seeing as how it caused nothing but crappy endings for all the witches in her family, curse suited better.
     The paper fell from her fingers to the floor, where the toe of a boot stuck out from under a flannel shirt. Trying to ignore the blinding whiteness of the document—that had to be fake—she grabbed her boot and pulled it out, trying not to touch anything else. This was clearly a prank Candy set up. But, she better hide because once Alice found her, there would be no mercy.

Book Blurb:

Lady Gwyneth Beaumont has long awaited the opportunity to show Viscount James Ashworth that she is no longer the impetuous child who dogged his footsteps. Now a much sought-after debutante, she is determined to prove to the hard-headed rake that she is a grown woman and a worthy participant in both the spy game and the game of love.

Ash, recently returned from three years undercover in France in His Majesty’s service, wants nothing more than to complete his final mission and retire to his bucolic country estate. However, what seemed a simple assignment to protect the Prince Regent at a Christmas party turns into a maze of intrigue, desire, and treachery.

Adding to the perilous secret operation is one problem Ash never anticipated: The appearance of the reckless, enticing Gwyneth, who has blossomed into a gorgeous woman and self-appointed spy. When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger.

Can Ash protect Gwyneth and the Prince from French assailants and, at the same time, win the passionate lady's heart? 

Can Ash and Gwyneth both triumph as winners in the game of spies and love?

Slip by David Estes Book Blitz + Giveaway

slip banner

This is my stop during the book blitz for Slip (Slip #1) and Grip (Slip #2) by David Estes. This book blitz is organized by Lola's Blog Tours. The book blitz runs from 1 till 5 December, you can view the complete blitz schedule on the website of Lola’s Blog Tours.

Slip (Slip #1)
By David Estes

Genre: Dystopia
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: 1 December, 2014

Someone must die before another can be born...

As sea levels rise and livable landmasses shrink, the Reorganized United States of America has instituted population control measures to ensure there are sufficient resources and food to sustain the growing population. Birth authorization must be paid for and obtained prior to having a child. Someone must die before another can be born, keeping the country in a population neutral position at what experts consider to be the optimal population. The new laws are enforced by a ruthless government organization known as Pop Con, responsible for terminating any children resulting from unauthorized births, and any illegals who manage to survive past their second birthday, at which point they are designated a national security threat and given the name Slip.

But what if one child slipped through the cracks? What if someone knew all the loopholes and how to exploit them? Would it change anything? Would the delicate resource balance be thrown into a tailspin, threatening the lives of everyone?

And how far would the government go to find and terminate the Slip?

In a gripping story of a family torn apart by a single choice, Slip is a reminder of the sanctity of a single life and the value of the lives we so often take for granted.

You can find Slip on Goodreads
