Book Review and Giveaway : Drasine by Geoffrey Saign!

Hello!

Today I am reviewing an Urban Tween Fantasy Thriller book titled Drasine by Geoffrey Saign. More about the author:

Geoffrey

Geoffrey Saign’s passion for nature and wildlife led to his award-winning fantasy series, WhipEye Chronicles. The author of the Divided Draghons & Bubblegum Mike series, his first books were Green Essentials: What You Need to Know About the Environment, African Cats and Great Apes. After teaching a self-awareness class for nearly a decade, combined with his own background in stress reduction, he wrote the professionally acclaimed Stress Free from Rainy Day Syndrome: A Practical Guide to End Stress, Restore Calm, and Find Happiness.

He has a background in biology, assisted in field research with hummingbirds and humpback whales, and sailed as far away as Australia. With more than twenty years of experience working in special education, he has taught adults and children everything from sailing to self-awareness to novel writing. He lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. 

Book Summary

Drasine

A story about love, nature, wildlife, intuition, and trusting yourself.

Samantha and Jake have one and a half days to find and free the golden dragon, Drasine, from her deadly captor and turn her over to the murderous leader of the Lesser smugglers, or Jake will be killed. Sam is also worried Jake is going to leave her, and Jake has even worse concerns that he won’t tell Sam. Forced to fight in a Death Match against deranged Lessers, Sam and Jake learn that the secret mentor of Gorgon, the Evil One, is behind everything, and that one of them may have to die to save the other……nonstop action, monsters, & giant creatures—with quirky humor.

My Review

Samantha a.k.a Sam & Jake have yet another adventure, but this time far more dangerous than ever before. The monsters are bigger, the stakes are higher and the risks are much more.

Drasine is a golden dragon, whose flames can heal and empower anyone who touches it. That makes her much desirable for everyone who wants power. But she is kidnapped & guarded by a very strong creature, whose power and abilities are unknown to Sam & Jake. Yet they face him and try to rescue Drasine. But once they get there, they understand that the story is very much different than what they’ve been told. Drasine doesn’t want to be rescued and there are much bigger things to worry about.

An interesting character, the Evil One, makes the book truly irresistible, because no one knows who or what it is nor what it’s powers are. There are multiple characters who are accused to be the Evil One. That’s a suspense, a thrilling one too, since it turns out to be one whom you would never suspect.

The author’s creativity and imagination astonishes & awes me. He has created such beautiful scenarios in the land of the Great Ones, Kiraku and has come up with some really badass monsters that are truly evil and powerful. The twists and turns in this book are least expected and makes it more happening than a wild rollercoaster ride!. I just couldn’t put the book down. It has amazing descriptions of animals that I never knew existed and the stunts between the guardians and the baddies are described very well.The book cover is interesting, showing Drasine, her captor, the guardians & their magical staffs.

This is the most interesting book in the Whipeye Chronicles. Though you can still enjoy a good story, even if you are not reading it in the chronological order, I wish to remind that it is not a standalone book and you will need to read the first two books to properly understand the backstory and some characters from those books, mentioned here.

Overall, it’s a powerful, action packed book suitable for both children and adults. I can’t recommend you this book enough. I haven’t read a more happening book of late and all I can think after reading it is “Whoa what a (rollercoaster) ride!. I wish it hadn’t finished”. The way the book ends, the author promises yet another adventure, and thus a fourth book in this series. I just can’t wait to read it! ♥

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars which by Goodreads standards mean I ‘loved it’!

Review and Giveaway : Pandavita’s Baobab powder!

Hey guys,

Today am super excited to review a superfood which most of you might not have heard about – Baobab Powder!. Pandavita, a UK based brand, sells 100% natural, 100% organic Baobab powder that’s produced in Ghana, Africa & packed in the UK.

Baobab

What is Baobab?

Baobab (Bay-Oh-Bab) is an exotic fruit, grown on magnificent trees in Africa. It is the only fruit in the world that naturally dries inside its shell and this is because of the hot weather. Pandavita removes the sweet-tasting, dried fruit powder and pack it into kraft-paper pouches. Their baobab fruit powder is 100% organic and free from nasties like sugar, preservatives and additives. It is just a pure, raw superfruit.

Baobab tree is also known as the upside down tree, the monkey bread tree or the tree of life. They look other worldly. Pretty breathtaking, don’t you think?..

Benefits of Baobab

Overall studies have shown that baobab has:

●10 times the antioxidant level of oranges and 6 x more antioxidants than cranberries, blueberries and blackberries.

● Up to 6 times more Vitamin C than oranges.

● 4 times more potassium than a banana.

● 2 times more calcium than milk.

● More iron than spinach.

It also contains zinc, manganese, essential fatty acids, phosphorus, protein and vitamin B complexes.

To read more about the benefits of Baobab, click here.

No wonder it’s a superfood!. Just imagine the benefits of including Baobab powder into your daily diet.

How to add Baobab in your diet

To try it for yourself, use 5-10g (1-2 teaspoons) of this fruit powder in water, a fruit juice or a smoothie; or you can sprinkle it onto cereal or yoghurt.

Check out Pandavita’s super informative & beautiful baobab recipes that allows you to get creative and gives you ideas on how to incorporate it into foods.The health benefits (such as a positive mood shift, increased energy, better digestion, glowing skin & much more) that you will get from using this vegan-friendly, sugar-free and dairy-free baobab powder are enormous.

My experience with Baobab powder

This fine, cream colored, raw fruit powder is a treat to the taste buds. It has a tart, citrusy taste. It has a full bodied, complex flavor that leaves you with a filling sensation. I first tried the powder on it’s own to understand it’s taste.

Baobab powder

Then, I tried it as a drink. When mixing with water, add a little water to the powder to create a paste, then gradually add more water while stirring. It’s a lovely drink with a citrusy taste. I tried with 2 tsps in a glass of water as suggested on the pack that the powder came in. But had to increase the number of tsps to get the right taste.

The Baobab powder comes in a resealable, recyclable environment friendly & cute Kraft paper pouch. Just love it!. 5% of every purchase on Pandavita goes to charity, which is great. I highly recommend you try this because it is so delicious and will enhance the flavour of anything that you are having, that has a fruity taste to begin with. Not to mention all the wonderful benefits it comes loaded with. Also, this product is gluten free, vegan friendly, paleo friendly, non GMO, dairy free & sugar free.

To buy, click here. It’s available in 50 gms, 100 gms & 250 gms packs. You can get 10% off by using the discount code 10OFF.

Reading about all of it’s benefits, being the skincare crazed person that I am, I couldn’t help but wonder whether it’s available as a skincare product. Guess what I found online?. Aura Cacia’s organic Baobab oil!. That’s on my wish list now 🙂

Also, did you notice Pandavita’s logo?. It’s so adorable and cute. They chose their name based on the fact that Pandas are adorable and seem so happy and ‘vita’ in Italian means ‘happy life’. It’s all about achieving a happy, healthy life ♥.

Giveaway

The amazingly friendly Director of Pandavita, Kieran, is sponsoring a pack of Baobab powder (containing a generous 50 gms) to one of my awesome followers. It is open worldwide and can be entered using the Rafflecopter form below. Please enter only if you have a postal address. Giveaway ends on Mar 21st, 2017 and winner will be announced by Mar 24th.

All Laced Up by Erin Fletcher

presented by Entangled Teen Crush!

Swoon worthy hockey players?  Sign. Me. Up.

 

Happy Book Birthday, Erin!!

Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey. When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh.   But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey. Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing.   Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one…  

Disclaimer: This book contains a swoony hockey player (and his equally swoony friends!), one-too-many social media accounts, kisses that’ll melt ice, and a secret identity that might not be so secret after all…
