Review-

“There’s only one way I can start this fire, and she’s the match” best LINE. MY heart died when he said it. Because . . . come one.

I was lucky to receive e-copies of the first and second novel by the author M.C.Frank and truly am grateful for being able to read such an amazing series and I CAN NOT wait for the 3rd installment to this amazing amazing amazing series.

There will be spoilers ahead, so be careful reading! ;P

Well, where do I start?

Once again, I adored EVERYTHING about this novel.

I was so happy to start book 1 and after I finished I wrote the review IMMEDIATELY because I wanted to share NO ORDINARY STAR to everyone.

This review is late only because I’ve been extremely busy but I loved book 2 just as much, if not more than book 1. There was more “action” and I mean that with multiple reasons that I won’t explain.

How do I even write a review without spoilers? I feel like this book requires spoilers to even continue. The Third installment of the No Ordinary Star series comes out November 25th, 2017. I suggest reading these books before then so you can read it once it comes out *wink wink*

I do want to add that the covers are GORGEOUS, especially to b3, I might just love it more because of Felix and Astra. . . but either way 11/10 stars to all the covers.

I do hope that this will not be the LAST book from this series, I really enjoy Felix and Astra’s bantering!

Felix without Astra

In No Plain Rebel part two of the NOS series, the match girl disappears, however she does not disappear from the tin soldiers head. Which I am happy about. I was really sad at that point when Astra just “disappeared” I wish she didn’t and they just lived happily ever after in their ice shack with Ursa and the tiny fishes and the underground giant bunker with a library and a GAME ROOM! I mean, come one, It’s like a hidden heaven for me. I would never leave. They wouldn’t know where to find me cause underground is hidden. . . and nobody wants to be apart of the real world. Stay hidden people! MY BABIES ARE SAFE UNDERGROUND WITH THEIR BOXED FOODS AND ALL THE BOOKS AND OTHER ENTERTAINMENT!

This review mostly involves me rambling, I just want to make it clear the I wholeheartedly love and enjoy this book. Number one favorite series in 2017, I can’t imagine what I would’ve done without reading it. I genuinely adore each and every sentence, character, cover, title, EVERYTHING. I know I say I love a lot of books, but seriously… this is a book everyone should be reading.

 

I was excited to see karim again, he was pretty cool. Kinda after I found out what he did I kind of hated him…but then I got over it because he’s basically a brainwashed robot who does exactly what he’s told. I just hope that everyone ‘wakes up’ and sees the world as it was and how it should be with actually FEELING LOVE AND EMOTIONS.

 

lastly, the cliffhangers are cruel. They make you happy, sad, emotionally unstable where for ten minutes you stare at a wall wondering what to do with your life and if Felix and Astra are going to live happily ever after in the little cabin where it’s safe and the world can’t hurt them. Where family ties are there but can’t hurt you! I swear, nothing bad better happen to them *CRIES* I love them. And just want them to be happy.

The song I chose to go with No Plain Rebel:

Let Her Go by Passenger.

I hope you all enjoyed this crazy review XD

Review: 
You may have seen and interview with M C FRANK when I did my MFBLFest interviews link here

Warning spoilers may be involved. 

 
I adore this novel. And everything about it.  

Seriously it was amazing 

There are basically two characters throughout half of the book. The Tin Soldier AKA Felix and The Match Girl AKA Astra. And there’s Ursa but that’s a polar bear that I would love to cuddle. 

Anyways, in this book it is the end of 2524 going to be “twenty-five, twenty-five”. And in this year that I would be 524(525) there is no love, hunger,  or illness. Which is crazy and cool because no hunger and illness but without love . . . Humans would suck. Seriously, that’s like having no sympathy for anyone or anything. 
Anyways, Felix or the Tin soldier is the best soldier of his time. He received a message in the beginning and went to the North Pole where old Saint Nick used to live with his pointed eared helpers. And he meets someone. A girl named Astra who is by far my favorite of all the characters. Sorry Felix. 

The match girl is brave, strong, and funny. Or at least I thought she was. She said she didn’t cry a lot … but she cried a lot. I can’t judge because I basically cry after every novel I read. I may have cried a bit for this but you’ll never know because I’m not admitting to it. 
One thing I did hate is how very short it was. I wanted to not stop reading, this is the first time in MONTHS I’ve finished a novel in a day. A day people! Lately I’ve been reading a book a month! 

But a day. I literally read 3/4 of it twenty minutes ago but that’s even better lol 

My time twenty minutes your time … a day ago … maybe. 
It was so amazing. I loved the futuristic take of this novel I loved the characters and the animals! I loved how when he went to hunt for food he found a squirrel and he didn’t know what it was and that was so innocent and sweet because he didn’t want to kill it. 

So instead of killing it he took acorns that it was eating to bring back to Astra. I mean, if these two don’t become a couple I’ll be so devastated. It needs to happen. 
Honestly, I thought I’d be rating this a 3/5 or something but 5/5 ALL THE WAY! I AM SO IN LOVE I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW AMAZING IT WAS AND HOW PERFECT IT WAS. I didn’t expect it to be so good 

And there wasn’t much action, so you’d think it’s be boring but I will say it was by far from boring. 

I recommend this novel to everyone. If you don’t like futuristic novels, well read it anyways and let it change your opinions on them because it was mind blowing and perfect. Thank you M.C. Frank for giving me a e-copy to read. I am so excited to read every book of yours! 
Happy reading luvs.

Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exa…more


Now it is time for an interview with Cvareh! 

If you could make the perfect outfit what would it be ?

What a relief to be speaking with someone so sensible. When Ari told me we were conducting these interviews, I was worried I’d be stuck answering normal Fenthri questions about gears and bolts… The perfect outfit, of course, changes from season to season. You seem to be well put together yourself, I won’t insult your sensibilities on that fact… But, for me… I do take a shining to vests. A month ago in Napole I saw a few smart-looking gentlemen wearing wide-legged trouser that had no tapering at the knee, so I’d be very curious to try that… Perhaps in a seafoam blue with gold embellishments? To really bring out the jewel tones in my skin and warmth of my hair.

What do you think your greatest strength is?

I’m a fairly unambitious Dragon. Just ask anyone in the Dragon court. They’ll tell you the woes of the weakest brother in House Xin. Certainly no great strengths here to speak of… Especially none that the Dragon King should worry over…

Would you rather be stuck in a room with Florence, Ari, or Leona for 24hours?

Certainly not the King’s Bitch. Arianna… She… Well… I doubt she’d have any interest in spending a that many hours in a row with me confined to a room, unless it was a very, very large room. Just taking the train to that port in the Revolver’s Territory nearly got me killed. I’ll say Florence, she’s by far the most level-headed… Which, is ironic, since she’s easily the youngest… And, she gave me a cookie once.

What makes you laugh?

On the isle of Ruana there’s this performing troupe that tours from Napole up the far side of the island from the Xin Manor. They put on the funniest performances in the springtime during harvesting at the vineyards. I have never found myself laughing so hard as I did then–even my sister, Petra, laughed! Though, the wine may have helped!


Hope you all enjoyed this interview with Cvareh himself! ;P

REVIEW:

A wonderful spin on Hades and Persephone 

When it firsts starts she’s in this place with Cole and she can’t stop thinking about someone she is forgetting.

Jack.

She get’s out of this . . . world? and she finds out she’ll only have 6 months basically to live before she get’s pulled into this dark underworld. Which I completely forget the name of it . . .

Nikki Beckett was a troubled teenager, I guess. I forget WHAT happened exactly on why she left with Cole, it has been a little bit XD but I do know it involved her Boyfriend JACK.

OH WAIT! I know. But I won’t mention it for spoiler reasons.

Anyways  I didn’t really like Nikki, she was kind of annoying . . . but I did like Cole! he was cool. Jack was cool too.

There were a lot of parts that were completely predictable but I didn’t really care because I was enjoying the plot. So friggin much!

Another thing that annoyed me was when she wanted to go back to ‘earth’ for her family to be with her loved ones and you didn’t really see her family. She was in her room, at school, or with Cole or Jack. It wasn’t a big deal, but I felt like they should have been more apart of the story. especially her little brother

JACK, I wasn’t a fan of him. He didn’t do anything wrong, I just liked Cole better.

COLE, was awesome. I mean, I don’t really know exactly what he would be called other than Cole. But his “work” was weird. I understand why Nikki didn’t want to go with him, because she didn’t want to live to hurt other people. To take life from other people . . . but I liked Cole a lot and she would’ve made everything soooo much easier if she just went with him.

Just saying.

All in all, I give it a 4/5 stars! it was a fun read and highly enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Mythology and romance, definitely swoon scenes ;P

If you read it comment the link to your review for me to read or just tell me how you liked it! ❤
