The Forever Queen has Arrived....

She will become legend…

Lance is trapped in Avalon, and something more powerful and more dangerous than anything Cara has yet faced is trapped in this world. The only way to fix it is to break an ancient and powerful spell, but first Cara will have to figure out who or what cast it.

In the meantime the line between Cara’s two worlds is blurring. There are those in this world who know who she is, and have plans of their own for her future. Those plans involve treason.

Unfortunately those same people hold the key to breaking the spell and Cara will have to choose between Lance, her future, and saving the world.


Seriously. I cannot give this book enough praise. This series is a must for every one who loves the classic Arthurian tale of King Arthur and Sir Lancelot with an ingenious spin. Not to mention this cover - I mean really?! I try (as the old saying goes) not to judge a book by it's cover but seriously-- how completely beyond gorgeous is it? I know I did a cover reveal for it and gushed about it there but I feel it bears repeating (regushing? LOL)

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of this book and man oh man...right in the feels from the get go. 

Nicola S. Dorrington has continued the story of Cara and her Knights as she is comes face to face something worse than a vengeful family member and is forced to choose between her Destiny, the greater good, and her hearts desire. We are also introduced to another sect of the Arthurian world; one who may or may not have the most honorable intentions for our heroine.

I definitely thought Cara was resilient, going with the flow while she accepts her role in this new, bigger world she was thrust into in the The Last Knight, but this book solidifies how tough enduring, and strong she has become. Even though she has her Knights by her side, many of the adversities she encounters require her to face them alone. We also learn more about both Gwyn, Percy and Lance as well as connect some of Cara's life before Destiny changed it forever to her life now.

I loved that we get to see Cara grow to her full potential - from simply trying to blend into the walls to standing up for herself when it counts. She truly grows comfortable in her skin throughout this book which is, in my mind, a great attribute to have in a lead female character.  Yes, she has help, but the help doesn't push her aside to do things or make decisions for her.

I have to say that the only thing I really missed from this book was Arthur helping to guide Cara the way he did in the first book. I don't, however, feel like it took away from the story because every hero/heroine has to learn to stand on their own two feet before they can truly become great.

Cover Reveal!!!

It's time to see the cover for the final book, Every Last Breath, in Jennifer L. Armentrout's Dark Elements series.

Praise for Every Last Breath

 “Armentrout is a major talent…I just can’t stop reading!”
--New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

“Armentrout works her magic with swoon-worthy guys and a twist you never see coming.”
--#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines on White Hot Kiss

This is a book I am highly anticipating...


Some loves will last 'til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

 And here is the beauty.....

I love it! It's such a powerful statement for such a simple cover....And Layla is on the cover by herself - because remember we chose who she ended up with!

What? It doesn't match the others you say? You hate it when publishers change the style of cover so far into a series? Well....Funny you should say something....


In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…
