Golden Son cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Golden Son (Red Rising Trilogy #2) – Pierce Brown


As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he was building for his descendants. But the Society he faithfully served was built on lies. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds—and their only path to liberation is revolution. And so Darrow sacrifices himself in the name of the greater good for which Eo, his true love and inspiration, laid down her own life. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he can destroy it from within.
A lamb among wolves in a cruel world, Darrow finds friendship, respect, and even love—but also the wrath of powerful rivals. To wage and win the war that will change humankind’s destiny, Darrow must confront the treachery arrayed against him, overcome his all-too-human desire for retribution—and strive not for violent revolt but a hopeful rebirth. Though the road ahead is fraught with danger and deceit, Darrow must choose to follow Eo’s principles of love and justice to free his people.
He must live for more.

Thank you to Del Rey Spectra and Netgalley for the ARC!

Holiday Abduction cover - (un)Conventional BookviewsHoliday Abduction (Alien Abduction #6) – Eve Langlais


Vhyl is determined to acquire a certain lost artifact, but when he lands on the forbidden barbarian planet known as Earth, he finds more than expected. An attractive human female is in possession of the priceless object, and she’s agreed to hand it over—for a price.
Apparently she doesn’t know of his reputation…or doesn’t care.
Intrigued by her fearless nature—and her luscious cocoa skin—this acquisition expert can’t resist stealing a kiss. But before he can take more, his enemy arrives to stake a claim.
It seems Vhyl isn’t the only one interested in Jilly’s treasure—and Jilly herself. On the run not only from Earth forces but his enemies too, they must fight to survive and evade capture.
However, he can’t escape the effect the human has on him.
In the end, Vhyl has to make a choice—Jilly or the priceless treasure he came for?

  1. OOOh nice! These are pretty new to me! Though I was reading the Downside books for a time awhile back! Guess I fell out of them when they went on pause…Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    My STS will be up on Sunday, stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower 🙂

    • I keep hoping we’ll get a full Downside Ghosts novel soon, Jessica, and to tide me over, I’m listening to the audio books. The narrator is amazing.
      Have a great weekend.

    • Yeah, I really think you need to read Red Rising before Golden Son, if not you’d be completely lost, Grace. I loved Red Rising, though! So much!

  2. I heard great things about the first one, I really should try the series. But not sure about Langlais… not really attracted by her books. Happy reading!

  3. Yeah, not sure Langlais would be to your liking, Melliane. I love her humor and the way she writes erotica, so I’m totally hooked, though 🙂

  4. Did you enjoy the first Pierce Brown book, then? (Sorry if I missed the review!) I keep wondering about it, the cover is pretty eye catching. Hope you enjoy these books!

  5. I think I read something from Stacia Kane a while back-the fact that I don’t remember what it was probably isn’t a good sign! Hope you enjoy your books and thanks for visiting!

    • I haven’t read much at all this week for some reason… I have no idea why, I’ve been tired, I guess, and lots of things going on, too.

    • I don’t think it’s supposed to be over, yet, Braine… But Stacia Kane is a lot less active on her blog than she used to be, I hope she and her family are doing OK!

  6. Yay for all your pretties, Lexxie. I know how much you loved Red Rising so I’m glad you scored Golden Son. And I want the Downside Ghosts stories! 😉 I hope you enjoy them all!

    How was your weekend? Mine was busy as the girls had a special day-long event at school for band on Saturday. And then yesterday I was away from home celebrating a friend’s birthday. At least the weather was nice. 🙂 Happy Monday, my dear!! **BIG HUGS**
