Winter is growing in strength as the evil Queen's horrifying legions scar the land in their frigid wake. No one is safe. Shade becomes enemy number one for the Unseelie legions.

My Review  ire
I refuse to give any spoilers for this book away so this review will probably be a little short. And i should start by saying if you haven't read the first book in the series Ever Shade you should run out and read it before starting book two The first book sets up the main characters very nicely. I love this series and I couldn't wait to get my hands Ever Fire. The story continues shortly after the first book leaves off. Shade continues to discover what she can do with her powers and who she is in life both in the human world and in faerie. She also finds that she has family in faerie. This book made me very sad for Shade. Every time something starts to work out for her something goes terribly wrong. She is uncertain in her  lifes path and in her hearts desires. It has a great flow to a wonderful story line. and as always Alexia creates a world that is epic and fun to read. This book will draw you in and leave you wanting more. I must say I can not wait for book three of the series Ever Winter to come out. And I just want to add that I tried to pre-order this book and amazon wouldn't let me so Alaxia being the amazing person that she is gave me an ARC copy of the book so I could read it early. That alone makes me love her and I want to tell her officially Thank you! ,3

Since Alexia was so generous to me I thought I'd pay it forward so one lucky person will receive an ecopy of both books in the Ever Shade series book one Ever Shade as well as book two Ever Fire. All youn have to do is fill out the rafflecopter and cross your fingers :).

 The Doorknob Society
By M.J. Fletcher

 Chloe Masters’s world changed in a heartbeat - and all she did was touch a doorknob.

When she was young Chloe’s mother vanished. Wracked by feelings of abandonment and anger she lost herself traveling with her father's magic act, where illusions were part of her everyday life. Yet everything changes when they are pursued by a mysterious man in black out to kill her father. Touching a doorknob activates abilities she never knew she had and she finds herself thrust into a world of ancient societies and secrets.

When her father disappears it is a race against time to find answers before she loses what is left of her family. Now Chloe must choose who to trust, the man who will do anything for her or the one she can’t stop thinking about.

My review:
 Holy crap this book is soooo well written. I loved the story line, The plot and the characters very much. My favorite character was of course James Nightshade. It has everything...Inter denominational travel, steampunk devises, magic, mythical creatures and so much more. I truly loved reading this book and can't wait until the next book comes out! Cloe is a smart ass tough girl and I love that in a main character. Slade (Cloes' love interest) is down to earth and tries to keep her grounded. Nightshade is a smart ass that has a comment for every thing and keeps her on her toes. Jess her estranged cousin (after a huge fallout) becomes her best friend.Edgar always imparts a witty since of knowledge. And Val (the only normal one) is very supportive in a self absorbed kind of way. All in all this group of misfits make one hell of a team. I think this book has a little bit for everyone and anyone who enjoys a good book should check it out.

Next book in the series
(which I'm heading to amazon to buy right now!)
