21899019

Publisher: MuseItUp Publishing

Publication Date: 16 April 2014

“Feeling desperately confused and betrayed by the people she trusted the most, Kiera chose to jump through the disappearing vortex. Did she make it over to Zakk’s kingdom or was she pushed back to Earth? Would she even survive this time?

The next four years are long and heartbreaking for both worlds. As the darkness spreads throughout the lands, will Zakk’s army be able to stop it reaching Earth? Will Tom’s small band of rebels on earth stand a fighting chance?

At the time of the final battle will the Chosen One have the power to stop the oncoming evil or will it be too late?”

MY REVIEW

Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and share my honest opinion. Regular Me, My Books and I readers may have already seen my reviews of the previous three books in the series but in case you missed them, click here.

Events at the end of book three were quite shocking so I was excited to find out what the final book would have in store for me but there was also a part of me that felt sad the series was coming to an end.

I soon found myself immersed in the storyline, eagerly trying to find out what would happen to Kiera and co. The author successfully created more tense and dramatic moments which kept me on the edge of my seat – even after four books I couldn’t predict what the Witch Queen would do next!

I could almost feel the connection between characters and this somehow made each scene believable (yes I know it’s fantasy but there you have it). Kiera’s abilities have grown with each book and that was no different this time around, it’s been fun watching her character evolve.

This was a quick, yet action-packed, read which provided me with some much-needed escapism. I’m giving it 5 stars!

Kiera’s Quest Giveaway

Today, thanks to a very generous author, I’m thrilled to offer 3 lucky readers the chance to win an e-copy of the first 2 books in the MG/YA fantasy series, Kiera’s Quest by Kristy Brown! 

First let me share some info about the books:

Kiera’s Quest: Awakenings (Book 1)

“Meet Kiera, a pretty, intelligent, and talented girl, brought up by her uncle, and abandoned by her parents. Life is as normal as she believes it to be, apart from the deep ache inside her, telling her she’s different. For years, Kiera had dreams where she ventures into a different reality. She’s not alone; a presence is always there, keeping her safe, yet she feels vulnerable, and hunted.

Zakk, Prince of Zantar, is under the Witch Queen’s spell as she tries to take over his world. He crosses paths with Kiera, and their fates are entwined.

As their journey unravels, she learns that she is not the only one affected by this prince. Who is on her side? Will she find out why she has been chosen? How can someone so young, defeat such evil? Will she find the strength to save the ones closest to her? Will this be Kiera’s only Quest?”

My overall thoughts: If you’re looking for a fast-paced quick read with an exciting and magical edge then this is for you.

Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices (Book 2)

“After almost beating the villainous Witch Queen, Kiera’s triumph is tainted with sadness for the loss of Joe and Daz.

When the handsome Prince Zakk asks Kiera to re-enter his world in order to save her friend, she does not hesitate. On their perilous journey Kiera realizes that she is there to save many lives.

As she comes face to face with her evil nemesis once again, Kiera comes closer to finding out the truth to why she has been chosen.

Will she succeed? Will this be the end to Kiera’s quest?”

My overall thoughts: This is an imaginative, quick read that I read in less than a day, the cliffhanger ending was perfect and left me wanting more.

Kiera’s Quest: Perceptions – Kristy Brown

Perceptions

“The Witch Queen has reached a new level of evil.

Kiera is helplessly stuck in Zakk’s realm. With the vortex destroyed, she is desperate to find a way home. Her Uncle Tom, her friends and now the boy she loves, are in danger. Will Kiera find the strength and the self-belief she needs to save them? 

On her lonely journey she meets new allies from peculiar races. The Prophecy is all falling into place. Will Kiera be able to forgive the people she trusted? Will she be able to save the world from her twisted nemesis, the Witch Queen? Will she finally believe that she is indeed the ‘chosen one’?”

Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review.  I had previously read the first two books in the series (my reviews can be found here) and was looking forward to seeing where book three would take me.

It began with the aftermath of events from book two, the drama was still flowing thick and fast so I quickly fell back into the storyline. Something that really stands out about these books is that they are so unpredictable, I tried to guess what would happen next but never got it right, I was definitely kept on my toes.

Following the progress of the characters in both worlds was exciting, I found The Witch Queen’s mischief-making particularly entertaining – this author certainly knows how to write a good villain!  Kiera seemed much stronger this time round and I enjoyed seeing the growth in her character, she still had some things to figure out but she did that with much more confidence.

It was good to find out more details about events from the first book, it enabled me to think back to what had happened with fresh eyes and a different view of it all.  Once again there were many twists and turns keeping me on the edge of my seat and the introduction of a few new characters added some extra intrigue.

I admit that this wasn’t my favourite from the series so far – book two still holds that title for me. But I will say that the events at the end of this book (which completely shocked me by the way) hint at some exciting scenes to come in book four so I’m very much looking forward to that one!

This was another imaginative and action-packed read from this fab series.

Kiera’s Quest: Perceptions can be purchased from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.

“After almost beating the villainous Witch Queen, Kiera’s triumph is tainted with sadness for the loss of Joe and Daz.

When the handsome Prince Zakk asks Kiera to re-enter his world in order to save her friend, she does not hesitate. On their perilous journey Kiera realizes that she is there to save many lives.

As she comes face to face with her evil nemesis once again, Kiera comes closer to finding out the truth to why she has been chosen.

Will she succeed? Will this be the end to Kiera’s quest?”

Firstly I’d like to thank Kristy Brown (@kierasquest on twitter, Facebook page here) for sending me this eBook to read and review.  I previously read, and really enjoyed, the first book in the Kiera’s Quest series Kiera’s Quest: Awakenings so I was looking forward to this one which is the second in the series.

Again this jumped straight into the action following Kiera and Zakk as they tried to save her friend, the addition of Jude and Alex made things very interesting with Kiera becoming a little bit jealous and territorial over Zakk.  The wonderful descriptions of everything conjured up vivid images in my mind and made me feel like I was there with the characters.

Back on earth another of Kiera’s friends, Maddy, was still feeling the loss of her friendship and potential relationship with Daz.  She also seemed to be under fire from the police and teachers due to Kiera’s mysterious disappearance, she got a big shock when Kiera’s uncle revealed a very important secret to her.

The Witch Queen was as evil as ever but weakened because of what had happened in the previous book with Kiera.  The way she rejuvenated her energy was not very pleasant but it made sense of some of the other things that had happened.

Captain Terrence and the team of rebellions were an interesting twist to the story, I really enjoyed this part because it made me think back to the previous book and look at things differently.

As with the first book I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next, I just could not predict the outcome and a couple of very unexpected revelations literally made me gasp out loud!

This is an imaginative, quick read that I read in less than a day, the cliffhanger ending was perfect and left me wanting more.

Kiera’s Quest: Sacrifices is available to buy from Amazon and costs £2.29 at the time of writing this review.

Kiera’s Quest: Awakenings – Kristy Brown

“Meet Kiera, a pretty, intelligent, and talented girl, brought up by her uncle, and abandoned by her parents. Life is as normal as she believes it to be, apart from the deep ache inside her, telling her she’s different. For years, Kiera had dreams where she ventures into a different reality.

First of all I’d like to thank Kristy Brown (@kierasquest on twitter) for sending me this eBook to review.

This wonderful fantasy story was action-packed from the very start and this meant that I was hooked pretty quickly. The descriptions really brought the characters to life which made it easy for me to visualise the colourful new world that Kiera finds herself involved with.

Kiera is a brave but unsure character, there are times in the story when she finds it hard to trust the people around her and this makes her feel incredibly alone. I get the feeling that there is a lot more to her than meets the eye and when the real world starts to blend with a magical fantasy world it’s like Kiera is finally able to discover her true self.

There were some funny moments and many unexpected twists that made this exciting story come to life, it has been written in an enchanting way and once I started reading I couldn’t stop until I reached the end.

This is the first in a mini series and after an ending that just leaves you wanting more I am really looking forward to continuing with Kiera’s journey in the next instalment which is out in July.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced quick read with an exciting and magical edge then this is for you.

Kiera’s Quest: Awakenings is available to buy from Amazon.
