JOHN FRIEDA

I was kindly sent a John Frieda box through Influenster today after I matched the requirements in their quiz about the type of hair I have. I was quite excited to try the products, as I NEVER splurge on hair products. I am a wash, dry, brush out and tie up type of girl. No fuss, no muss. Please note that all these opinions are my own, I am not being paid for this review.

TAKING A BREAK

As some of you may know I'm a full-time university student and I am finding it incredibly hard to keep up with my second year of university as well as blog tours, book posts, and reading for fun in general.

Sadly I have come to realize that I have to cut this part of my life temporarily. I won't be answering any further emails, or posting for a bit because of this. I'm also debating a change when I come back to remove some people from my past. I have also shut down my instagram for this reason as well.

I hope that everyone can understand that situation I am in. Thank you much for your support!

THE WHISPER KING

The Whisper King by Wil Radcliffe
Book Genre Dark Fantasy
Synopsis 
There is a monster sleeping deep inside of you, and The Whisper King is coming to wake it up…and rip it out! 
My name is David Kinder. And this is my story... every goddamn bloodstained word of it.
About 25 years ago when I was six my parents died in a car crash. I was bounced around a few state homes until they finally settled me at Meripitt Hill, an orphanage just outside of Lansing, Michigan. It was there that the shadows started visiting me. Not normal shadows. These shadows moved on their own accord, and whispered strange, alien things to me. Scared the piss out of me.
Wasn’t until Donna Elizondo moved to Meripitt Hill that my life started to actually become bearable. She became my best friend. Taught me to love music and to dance. That kept the shadows away. That kept me safe.
That year we were an epic story of two. We danced. We laughed. Hell, I suspect I was falling in love with her, if kids could really know what love is.
But then she was taken away from me. Adopted.
That’s when the shadows returned for me. That’s when they took me to the Shadow Mountains to serve the Whisper King.
For 25 years I learned how to fight. How to kill. I even learned how to transform myself into a Cuthach…a monster. There were thousands of us being trained there. Thousands of us learning to reach deep inside and unleash the monsters in our guts. 
When a spot opened in the Whisper King’s elite guard, the Silent Heart, I was chosen to fill it. But first I had to take one final test. A test that would determine once and for all if I was destined to be man or monster.
