Blog Tour Stop: The League of Skull & Bones, MJ Fletcher
This book is action packed. There’s so much fighting going on, I could barely keep still while reading it. I grew up with kung fu and action movies, so The League of Skull and Bones had me tingle in all the right ways. Here’s a bit more about the book before I continue with my thoughts on it:
Jess Grimm has the ability to travel to any dimension in the multiverse. There’s only one problem… it’s killing her.
Jess is a very interesting female lead. Scarred out of her image of herself – the pretty girl that always looks perfect and finds flirting easy, she is now focused on fighting. For her friends, for her life, for what she considers to be right. Trapped between the “I don’t do boyfriends” mantra, her need to reconcile with how she sees herself now, and the need to not be alone, Jess makes a shaky way through a dark world of paranormal abilities, never quite knowing who to trust.
Merric, the enigmatic bar owner with unknown powers and a mystery of a past, was by far my favorite male in the story. The one who does not promise or offer help, yet is there right on cue, I found myself rooting for him from the first moment he was introduced.
The evil woman in the story, Nyla, with her signature flowers and a need to go after everyone, was a great choice of opponent for Jess. Add that to traveling through dimensions, powerful devices, factions that all have their own interests. and time running out, and you have yourself a nice thrill traveling alongside Jess.
I can’t wait for what’s next in this series!
