    What a lovely surprise! I hadn?t heard of Beyond a Darkened Shore until it was featured in Fairyloot?s April box themed ?Whimsical Journeys?, and it couldn?t be more suitable because it was a whimsical, all-encompassing journey indeed! With an intricate blend of Norse ...

    Release date: April 10, 2018 Ok, let me get some serious fangirling out of the way first because this book had every element I love and was easily one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. I mean, there's a warrior princess in magical ancient Ireland, tons of Irish mythology, Nor...

    Wow. I am at a loss for words. I loved this book SO much! The story captured me right from the start and I was rooting for Ciara and Leif so hard. On top of the fantastic characters and story, I loved all of the Celtic and Norse mythology. Everything was just perfect and I never wanted...

    this was good, more than good, it was great for these reasons - fantaSY STANDALONE - enemy to lovers trope, you cannot convince me a greater trope existed - norse mythology (even tho i know next to nothing about it) was really fun and gave it a unique spin on the plot - sisters w...

    I loved every single aspect of this book!!! The romance was ON. POINT. ladies and gentlemen. I?ve also been really into the ?Enemies to lovers? trope lately (don?t judge me I?m just a poor little fangirl and my heart simply cannot take it) so this was a delicious, suspenseful...

    About: Beyond a Darkened Shore is a young adult fantasy written by Jessica Leake. It will be published on 4/10/18 by HarperTeen, an imprint of HarperCollins, 432 pages. The genres are young adult, fiction, fantasy, mythology, and historical. This book is intended for readers ages 14 an...

    *3.5* I loved the richness of the Norse and Celtic mythology set in Irish history, but the pacing of the story dragged for me. ...

    Soooo I kinda got this book 3 time this month in boxes and crates, and I was nervous after seeing a 3.7 rating, but I actually loved this book, and I honestly can?t tell you why. It had a few flaws that would usually take some star power and deductions, but y?all! I actually reall...

    MINI REVIEW I got this book in my April Fairyloot box. I was surprise to find this book but also happy and intrigued as it hasen't been hyped. I would dive in blind! I read it in three days due to work, chores, etc. and if I liked reading about Leif and Ciara's story I can't s...

    "Who knew you Northmen were so delicate?? ?We?re as fragile as petals." There's nothing wrong with this book it's just... so plain. For me, in order to enjoy a book (and get at least a four stars rating), it needs well written characters, an interesting plot, a shippable cou...

    ?The laws are clear: there are only two strong enough to defeat them. One born for it, the other through great sacrifice.? I will always pick up a mythology book. It?s one of my book buzz words that almost guarantees I will be interested in reading a book. I?m happy to say...

    Plot - 5 Writing style - 4.5 Characters - 4.5 Romance - 5 In which a powerful Christian princess fought alongside with a clingy Norse warrior to stop the giants from conquering the world. Plot - I would be lying if I'll say the plot was very original because the conflict some...

    A sweep-you-away fantasy filled with mythology, romance, mystery and magic. I really loved this one and I think YA readers will too! So happy I got to read an early copy. ...

    Buddy read with Scrill & Rae! ...

    2.5 stars? I was all over that synopsis and the bird on the cover and sadly it took a lot for me to get through this one. I really liked Ciara and Leif. She stands up for herself and he?s cocky and together they?re fantastic. I loved the scenes of them bantering or kissing o...

    ? A warrior princess has to team up with the enemy to safe the world? ? And she has the ability to control minds? And actions? BLOODY BADASS. ...

    This book was really fun! The start was a tad slow in places but after 40% it got epic! The middle portion of the book had me absolutely hooked! ...

    I like this book but not love it so lets start with things i like: The main character Chiara is so powerful but i love her attitude, The Hate to Love romance (my fav trope) and the easy to read writing style! Things i didnt like: The freaking plots! some were boring and drag, esp th...

    RTC ...

    Very much a 3 star read for me. It was fine, but not great, and ultimately I won't remember it. I really love the premise, and the historical Irish setting is one I enjoy, but the problem I had is that, for me, this book just didn't deliver like I wanted it to. I can't help but comp...

    I received an ARC of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! Review to come! My Blog Bookstagram Twitter Pinterest Facebook ...

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes! Yes! No cliff hanger, but please let there be another book!! I need more of Leif & Ciara!!!! ...

    Plot - 5 Writing style - 4.5 Characters - 4.5 Romance - 5 In which a powerful Christian princess fought alongside with a clingy Norse warrior to stop the giants from conquering the world. Plot - I would be lying if I'll say the plot was very original because the conflict some...

    A sweep-you-away fantasy filled with mythology, romance, mystery and magic. I really loved this one and I think YA readers will too! So happy I got to read an early copy. ...

    Buddy read with Scrill & Rae! ...

    2.5 stars? I was all over that synopsis and the bird on the cover and sadly it took a lot for me to get through this one. I really liked Ciara and Leif. She stands up for herself and he?s cocky and together they?re fantastic. I loved the scenes of them bantering or kissing o...

    This book was really fun! The start was a tad slow in places but after 40% it got epic! The middle portion of the book had me absolutely hooked! ...

    I like this book but not love it so lets start with things i like: The main character Chiara is so powerful but i love her attitude, The Hate to Love romance (my fav trope) and the easy to read writing style! Things i didnt like: The freaking plots! some were boring and drag, esp th...

    RTC ...

    Very much a 3 star read for me. It was fine, but not great, and ultimately I won't remember it. I really love the premise, and the historical Irish setting is one I enjoy, but the problem I had is that, for me, this book just didn't deliver like I wanted it to. I can't help but comp...

    2.5 stars? I was all over that synopsis and the bird on the cover and sadly it took a lot for me to get through this one. I really liked Ciara and Leif. She stands up for herself and he?s cocky and together they?re fantastic. I loved the scenes of them bantering or kissing o...

    What a lovely surprise! I hadn?t heard of Beyond a Darkened Shore until it was featured in Fairyloot?s April box themed ?Whimsical Journeys?, and it couldn?t be more suitable because it was a whimsical, all-encompassing journey indeed! With an intricate blend of Norse ...

    Wow. I am at a loss for words. I loved this book SO much! The story captured me right from the start and I was rooting for Ciara and Leif so hard. On top of the fantastic characters and story, I loved all of the Celtic and Norse mythology. Everything was just perfect and I never wanted...

    this was good, more than good, it was great for these reasons - fantaSY STANDALONE - enemy to lovers trope, you cannot convince me a greater trope existed - norse mythology (even tho i know next to nothing about it) was really fun and gave it a unique spin on the plot - sisters w...

    I loved every single aspect of this book!!! The romance was ON. POINT. ladies and gentlemen. I?ve also been really into the ?Enemies to lovers? trope lately (don?t judge me I?m just a poor little fangirl and my heart simply cannot take it) so this was a delicious, suspenseful...

    *3.5* I loved the richness of the Norse and Celtic mythology set in Irish history, but the pacing of the story dragged for me. ...

    Soooo I kinda got this book 3 time this month in boxes and crates, and I was nervous after seeing a 3.7 rating, but I actually loved this book, and I honestly can?t tell you why. It had a few flaws that would usually take some star power and deductions, but y?all! I actually reall...
