Destroyed (Birthright 7)

Written by: Bridget E. Baker

Written from Chancery's perspective for the most part, however there are a few side areas that give some insight into three others. We get to see an interesting scene from Edam's point of view when he was still a child living with his mom, which I quite enjoyed. We see something from Noah when he was 9 years old. Lastly we see something from Mahalesh, and with this chapter you get learn about how the stone was split, and more.

This was such an epic ending for the serues, so many areas had me in tears of both kinds (happy and sad). There is a few more scenes that you get to see from the past in this book, and it was so interesting to read.

I loved the ending, and am hoping to see about finding the small novella for what the ending showed.

Here is a couple links:


Book Description:

Accept the world as it is, or do something to change destroy it. In the final book of Bridget E. Baker's epic urban fantasy, find out the answers to all the questions that have been driving you mad!

The powers gathered against Chancery have been vanquished, and she has finally conquered the other five familes and assembled their stones. All she needs to do is rejoin the final stones and locate the garden so that she can fulfill the prophecy.

But not all her enemies stood outside the gates.

When her direst enemy strikes, she's woefully unprepared. She's willing to suffer the consequences of her lack of judgment, but her failure means the destruction of billions of lives. Can Chancery make the sacrifices necessary to redeem her misplaced faith, or will the Sons of Gilgamesh bring to pass the utter destruction prophesied from the beginning?

unRepentant (Birthright 6)

Written by: Bridget E. Baker

Written from Inara's perspective. I definately get how the book got it's

So in this book, you find out who/what killed Enora, and why it happened in the way that it did. You find out the reasoning behind the issues when the twins were still in the womb and why mom was so weak.

This books wraps up a lot of the last mysteries in the book series which is great. I now really dislike Inara and the things she does in this book. The ending is a little karma for her but now I must read the last book to fully find out how the end goes and if the propecy is fulfilled.

Here is a couple links:


Book Description:

Inara, sick of playing the pawn, has decided to up her game. But not all of her new decisions have been positive, and one misstep can have far reaching consequences. Will Inara play nicely, or bring down the entire family in her fury?

When you've already lost everything that matters...

Inara devoted more than two hundred years of her life to serving Alamecha. She gave up on her epic love. She lost her best friend. She protected her sisters, even as they stole her birthright. Her siblings made error after error, and Inara patiently cleaned up their mistakes.

Gambling over the future of the world isn't daunting.

But when a critical piece of the past comes to light, Inara realizes she sacrificed in vain. Now that she finally knows the truth, Inara is done playing janitor. She's never serving anyone else again. Inara will do whatever it takes to secure the throne for herself--even if that means destroying her mother's legacy.

Disavowed (Birthright 5)

Written by: Bridget E. Baker

Written from Chancery's perspective.

Time moves forward in this book without a hitch. There is many action scenes that unfold within. So many scenes within scenes as well.

Chancery gets a chance to figure out who her mother's killer could have possibly been. She finds out more about Noah. War is seen on the horizon.

So many great scenes in here and still more to read, I personally can't wait to read the next and find out more about Inora and find out why she did what she had done in Melina's book, I have some inklings on it, but nothing solid of course.

Great job as always and on to the next one. This one took more time cause I have had some things happening and haven't been able to read as much as I want to.

Here is a couple links:


Book Description:

Chancery may be the youngest ruler of the Evians, but she won her first battle. Thanks to her success, the powers ruling the rest of the Earth are aligning against her, and her supporters’ demands grow with every passing day.

Her days of hiding are over…

A five thousand year old prophecy and a dull black rock ruined the life Chancery planned for herself. As she navigates the roiling waters of ancient prejudice, assassination, war, and refugees, she discovers how deeply unprepared she was to assume this unwanted role.

But standing tall makes you a target.

She isn’t alone, but everyone around her is working an angle. Noah’s missing, Edam’s planning their wedding, and the rulers of the Evian nations watch her every move like hungry panthers ready to pounce. A prophecy may have led her to this point, but the rest is up to her. Can she locate the true threat amid the school of red herrings? And what price is she willing to pay to prevent the threatened catastrophe?

Happy Birthday Kiddo

20 years ago on September 11, 2001, when I was 17, at 7 am, I woke with bad cramps, thinking it was just indigestion once again I thought nothing of it, and went to my gynecologist exam that was scheduled for that day.

Upon arriving at the doctors, she did my normal exam and said that I was 3 inches dilated and that I was to head to the hospital.

While I was there, they proceeded to "pop my water" which I will just say now, they failed to do that. My daughter was 10 days overdue, so they were just trying to move things along faster I guess?

Anyways while I was walking up and down the hallways trying to move her down as the doctor ordered me to, Disaster struck, in more ways than one. As every one knows, the horror of what happened that day we call 9/11. I was horrified at what was on the news, but I couldn't stay in the lobby to find out more cause my parents had brought kfc for us all to eat and the smell had me running for the bathroom.

My daughter was born at 12:04am on Sept.12. I am very glad her birthday doesn't actually share the same time as that day, as it may have had an impact on her, in ways we will never know.

I know that no one who knows her reads my blog, but I still wanted to share a small part of the story. Love ya kiddo.

misUnderstood (Birthright 4)

Written by: Bridget E. Baker

I actually bought the boxset off of Google, and since I hate incomplete sets or worse having them on different platforms since I had already bought the first boxset on Amazon, I re-bought the first boxset on google as well.

This book is all from Melina's point of view, it starts off with a letter she wrote to Chancery but the next chapters all take place in the past. You see how she was raised, her fighting style, who she likes, how she met the partner she had in the previous books.

You get to know the father a little, and the reason why in Judica's story you seen how she heard her mother call their father "flawed" and that he passed the same issue to Melina. -

This was a great read and helps you figure out why Melina is the way she is in the novels. I really enjoyed reading this and am on to the next novel in the boxset soon.

Here is a couple links:


Book Description:

Chancery is counting on her older sister Melina to help her find the right path. The fate of the world rests on the outcome of that guidance. But not everyone wants the entire world to survive. As usual, the key to the future lies in the mistakes of the past.

In a world where perfection is mandatory…

Melina’s parents do not get along, not even a little bit. All Melina wants is to make her parents proud, to make them smile. But what brings joy to one causes the other to scowl. There’s only one thing they both agree upon—Melina must win in single combat at the Centennial Games.

A single flaw renders you useless.

Melodics requires complete understanding of your opponent. Melina has no trouble analyzing and comprehending the motivations of others, which makes her a force to be reckoned with. But as the end draws near, as success dangles just out of her grasp, she discovers she may not know herself as well as she thought. And the thing she has refused to accept might be the very cause of her downfall.
