First Thought when Finished: Magic Rises by Ilona Andrews was such a hard book to rate.
Overall Thoughts: Had you asked me in the middle of Magic Rises what I thought after the relationship drama, pirate were-dolphins (WTF), and mean girls, I would have said this book was a 3 or 3.5 (what can I say I still love all my side characters and loved the new ones)! However, I am an ender and that freaking last quarter had ALL THE FEELS! I am like seriously so drained that I don’t think I can pick up the next one yet. I am emotionally gutted and yet I laughed like a wicked witch during the epilogue. Gah —just all over the place. I am sure those that have read it understand and those that haven’t just don’t start here.
Breath in, Breath out and grab the next one! First though I am going to listen to the deleted scenes.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
