Beside Table Reviews #1

Bedside Table Reviews is a segment that allows me to showcase books that can be reviewed in snip-bits.  Books-on-the-go.

Unrest by Michelle Harrison

Ghost Stories at its best.  Ghost Whisperer eat your heart out.

Michelle Harrison brings you the chilling story of 17 year old Elliot.  Elliot can't sleep, well not since a car accident that nearly killed him, instead he half wakes, paralysed, with shadowy figures moving around him (on occasions it's his figure moving about while his body lies asleep).  Harmless 'out-of-body' experiences are what his doctors are calling them.

Elliot is determined to find out the truth and he manages to find a job at a haunted museum where he meets Ophelia - but also something sinister.  One night, after Elliot's out of body experience, he finds that his body is gone.

Something dead wants to live, and it's looking for Ophelia too ...

From the author who wrote 13 Treasures, comes a ghostly chilling story of the 'unrested' battling the living!

The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams

Seraphina has been alive for 700 years, but immortality comes at a high price!  After a strange dapple in Alchemy years ago with her then-boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered the secret to immortality that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, killing them in the process.

As the years drag on, Sera's guilt begins to weigh her down, she escapes from Cyrus and vows never to kill again.  It isn't until Sera accidentally switches bodies with 16 year-old Kailey Morgan, who dies in a horrific car-accident.  Sera finds, for the first time, that she loves Kailey's life and falls in love with Noah - the boy next door.

Sera quickly discovers that Cyrus will stop at nothing to keep her in his clutches and every moment she stays she is putting herself and those she cares about in danger.
Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love? A classic coming of age story told through a great paranormal plot.

Endure by Carrie Jones

I love seeing the new plot lines for Young Adult books filling bookshelves lately.  I was intrigued (and still am) with this series of fairies by Carrie Jones.  Tammy February reviewed Need the first book in the series, I knew it had to be good. 

This is the third book and while I haven't sat down to read it just yet, I thought it would be a perfect ending to this post.  So here is the Goodreads blurb:

It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.

Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.
