Review: The Brightest Embers by Jeaniene Frost The Brightest Embers Author: Jeaniene Frost Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: The Brightest Embers is the final novel in the Broken Destiny trilogy.  Although the overall ending was pleasantly surprising and gripping, the constant angst of Ivy and Adrian’s relationship grated.

Review: The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost

Review: The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost The Sweetest Burn Author: Jeaniene Frost Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: The Sweetest Burn is the long awaited second novel in the Broken Destiny series. Gikany and Una liked this second novel, as Adrian seemed to improve while the plot thickened.  Though Ivy tended to be hot and cold, she preservers through her waffling to the save the day.
