Blog Tour and Review: Book 1&2 in the Lost Immortals Series- KaSonndra Leigh


Summary: It has been fifty-five years since the angels of the Apocalyptic War attempted to wipe out humanity. Now a new nation has been built where alchemy is forbidden, and angels fear for their lives as they hide among the mortals. 

The city’s leaders share one view on the ancestors of angels: shoot first, no questions. 

When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals. 

Chela’s only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart. 

Escape into a world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and forbidden romance.
Title: When Copper Suns Fall
Author: KaSonndra Leigh
Pages: 370
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for n honest review.
I have been wanting to read this book for a very long time and I am glad I finally got the opportunity to do so. I love this new cover! It's much prettier. I loved the idea of the story because I loved how KaSonndra Leigh made it about angel and it had a dystopian feel to it, I'm not really a fan of angels, but I thought if they were brought together her maybe it would work. And it did it for the first few chapters, which were my favourite, but then the book slowed right down. We did get a fees e rest at the end it it was still slow forms. I hope book two can pick back up.
I enjoyed the characters. Chela was a great heroine for now, and she will continue to be that as long as she stays on the good side. I'm enjoying the love triangle plus one. I feel like Jalen should also be included. The character that I found the most intriguing was Micha, I think this is because he is such a mystery but also plays a huge part in the story.
Can't wait to start book two and find out what will happen. Next. I would recommend this book to both dystopian and angel lovers.


Summary: Facing an unstable future, Chela Prizeon leaves Castle Hayne and crosses over to enemy territory in pursuit of Faris--the boy of royal blood who is cursed by a bitter rival. But soon Chela learns that he has been taken deep into the treacherous frozen prisons--a majestic, but deadly place where people enter and are never seen again. To find the boy she loves, Chela must join forces with one of her greatest enemies. And even though she pulls strength from the good in her powers, she finds herself drawn to the dark side's temptation as well.

Narrated from both Chela's and Faris's point of view, this enchanting sequel to When Copper Suns Fall will take them on a voyage into unknown lands, where the dark, twisted, and revengeful wait to make this their most dangerous journey ever.

Please Note: This book contains mature content including profanity, drug/alcohol use, and sexual situations/language.
Title: When Silver moons Rise
Author: KaSonndra Leigh
Pages: 312
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author I n exchange for an honest review.
Sadly, this book was a lot more about the angel side of things then it was dystopian, which sucked for me. I just found When Silver Moons Rise to be long and kind of boring. I was diving to not fall asleep throughout. There is a lot of interesting information to take in and a lot of it. I wasn't a fan. I did enjoy how the story flipped between Faris and Chela's POV's. I feel like most of the questions brought up had been answered.
The same characters, well for the most part are still kicking around but I felt like this book was more focused on Seth and his softer side. I am still convinced that there is a love triangle plus one, that one being Jalen. So who know what will happen in book three. I still want more Micha! My hunger for him wasn't met.
I'm not sure if this series is for me, so I am on t he fence whether or not to pick up book three. I would recommend this book to angel lovers.

Excerpt: Faris Hears Chela Call His Name

The shackles tighten around my wrists and ankles, digging deep into my flesh. A burn eases into my skin. I take a deep breath and wait for the fiery feeling to pass. Curse it. I can hardly move, let alone think.
Chela, I’m coming for you.
If you can hear me, know that I can survive this.
I’ll do it for you…for us.
A small band of light shines through the windows above me, The beam gives the metal chamber a touch of softness as a single ray of light shining on my face.
“I ask you again, Faris Toulan. Is this girl worth your life? Your immortality? Or what’s left of it anyway,” Olivia hisses into my ear, a sneer on her face. I stay silent, refusing to give in. She grasps my chin and forces me to look at her face. In exchange for Olivia keeping quiet about Chela’s true identity, I’ve agreed to remain here as her prisoner.
I glance deep in her empty eyes, and say: “Yes. Chela is everything to me. She’s all that you will never be. Your tricks can’t remove what I feel for her.”
Icy eyes glare at me. Her harsh laughter rips through my soul. The kindness she showed me earlier disappears at once. I don’t care. All I hope for, all I ache for is a chance to see Chela again. I promised to return as the Protector she needed me to be. I refuse to go back as the thing she is cursed to destroy.  That will only hurt her more than I’ve already done. I intend to keep my word.
“I do hope you understand what you’ve agreed to do,” Olivia says in a low, but deadly voice, her breath on my ear, her cold fingers stroking my face.  “By the time I’m done with you, there won’t be any other name you’ll call except mine. That’s how long you’ll beg for mercy.”
She moves closer to my face and kisses my lips. I want to gag. Inside, I’m already screaming. But her torture, or whatever her plans are for me are nothing compared to facing a life without Chela. By thinking of our love, her laugh, even the way she sometimes annoys me, I can handle anything Olivia does.
Hell most definitely exists. I’m fairly certain I’m about to experience it in full force.
And then, I hear Chela call my name.

Oh, and sometimes they love music and nature too. I live with my two sons,a guinea pig, a cat, and two dogs. Now that I have completed my MFA in creative writing, I find that I have a little extra time to play CLUE more often. I live in an L-shaped house dedicated to my grandmother. It has a secret library complete with fairies, venetian plastered walls, and a desk made out of clear blue glass.
