Read This Week 22/04

The Wretched of Muirwood

I down load The Wretched of Muirwood on a whim following and Amazon Kindle Unlimited e-mail.

I’d class it as Fantasy Fiction. If you are going to enjoy reading this book you have to be able to accept that it is set in a different reality.

Set in a world where members of families can command the Medium to bring forth fire and water, to still storms and destroy their enemies.

The heroine Lia is one of the ‘wretched’, a child born outside of a family or abandoned (Lia’s origins) and raised as servants in the Abbey. The wretched are given names to match the work they do, the laundresses are  ‘Reome Lavender’ the hunters are ‘Jon Hunter’.

The mighty are The Aldermaston, head of the Abbey, or like the princes and knights ‘Mastons’

Lia has a unique gift for a wretch, she can control the ‘leering stones’ and through them she has some powers from the Medium.

Layer on a rebellion against a corrupt King, a coming of age story, and mix in an easy reading style of writing and you have a book that you can enjoy reading. While it gets dark at times, a bit like in a John Wayne movie …. you always know the good guys are going to win.

I’ll give it 4 out of 5 stars

The Bride Wore Buff

Brad Eases

An interesting premise for a good fun naturist romp … if a bit far fetched but once you accept it the story works well.
Good fun classic romance motifs

Girl has boy, Boy’s parents think she is from the wrong side of the tracks, girl looses boy, girl gets boy back ….Everybody gets the reward they deserve.

All classic fare but nicely done.

Breaking The Ice

(An Examination of The Barely Decent) by Brad Eases

I read this one as a follow up to the Bride Wore Buff.

3 (eventually 4) Attractive single girls decided to hold a Clothing Optional garden party … Why are they single?

It’s not quite naturist fiction but not a smut book either.

Light, fluffy, frothy, fun nothing to dislike the pages kept turning and as a free Kindle Unlimited it was a pleasant read.

I’ll award 3 stars out of 5
