Stacking The Shelves #26 - Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #10

Saturday, October 15, 2016

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!





I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.


Imagine me doing a happy dance. Today finally arrived Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads. It got delayed for some reasons, and then I got yesterday the info I would have it in my mailbox by Monday 17. I was soooooo freaking happy when I found it today at my doorstep when I got home. Can´t wait to start reading it.



Bought books





She is an assassin. He a demon. She works for herself. He for the devil. She has a plan. He an order. He wants to eliminate her. She can´t kill him. That they fell in love with each other was the last thing, they expected. Are you ready for Blanche? It isn´t easy to grow up with an assassin who sold his soul to the devil. But when Blanche´s fatherly mentor dies, she must proof what´s inside her. She is visited by Beliar, one of the princes of hell, who demands that she pays the debts of her mentor because he didn´t show up after his death as agreed in the underworld. Beliar exerts a strong appeal to Blanche and when the demon falls in love with her, it becomes complicated.







Cursed with a terrible gift …
Criminal investigator Xander Stone doesn´t have to question you – he can hear your thoughts. Scarred by lightning, burdened with a power that gives him no peace, Xander struggles to maintain his sanity against the voice that haunts him day and night – the voice of a woman begging him to save her.
A gift that threatens to engulf them …
Isleen Walker has long since given up hope of escape from the nightmare of captivity and torture that is draining her life, her mind, and her soul. Except … there is the man in her feverish dreams, the strangely beautiful man who beckons her to freedom and wholeness. And when he comes - if he comes - it will take all their combined fury and faith to overcome a madman bent on fulfilling a deadly prophecy.


Reviewer´s copy






As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he was building for his descendants. But the Society he faithfully served was built on lies. Darrow´s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds – and their only path to liberation is revolution. And so Darrow sacrifices himself in the name of the greater good for which Eo, his true love, and inspiration, laid down her own life. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he can destroy it from within.







Mare Barrow´s blood is red – the color of common folk – but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince – the friend – who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind. Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors. But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

  3. I'm glad you got the book that was delayed! That is so annoying - I'm always worried that the book will just never show up. I loved Glass Sword! I can't wait to read King's Cage. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    1. Right now I think Red Queen was a bit more exiting, but we´ll see how I think at the end of Glass Sword about it. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Very nice haul, Vi! I can totally understand the happy dancing when you got that book you had been waiting for, too. I finally got my bookworm box yesterday (after I had posted my haul) and I did a happy dance as well.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.
