THE NAMELESS. As a warden, Soren’s duty is to guard against the dead, but he was never trained to guard against his heart. Drawn into a web of Solarian politics, Soren finds himself at the center of a storm of his own making, unwilling to break free if it means losing the man he loves. But even the darkest secrets cannot remain hidden forever, and when lies come to light, the price he pays for his silence may very well be his undoing.
THE EMPEROR. When his claim to the Imperial throne is challenged by a traitorous House, Vanya Sa’Liandel must adhere to the ancient tradition of the Conclave to stay in power. Refusing to face his peers alone, Vanya will stand before the Houses of Solaria with Soren by his side, a decision that risks his heart when an unspeakable betrayal threatens everything he’s fought for.
THE REBEL. With her entire world upended, Caris Dhemlan is on the run, struggling to come to terms with the truth of her heritage. As the Clockwork Brigade is targeted by Daijal, she must fight to save the people she cares about. Every rebellion needs a figurehead, but Caris is determined not to become a martyr.
THE QUEEN. With a crown claimed, Eimarille Rourke sets her sights on Ashion and the continent beyond her country’s borders. Promised a world by a star god, Eimarille sets into motion the gears of war and launches the opening salvo of a battle whose repercussions will ripple across the whole of Maricol.

Okay, I know I said I would be back on Wednesday. You know what helps to be able to come back on Wednesday? Knowing what day it is. The holidays have thrown me off quite badly, and this week I haven’t been sure what day is which. But, I’m back now, and I have E J Frost’s last book from Teddy’s Boys. Quaternion picks up from right where the last one left off, so there are going to be spoilers. I will try to not spoil as much as possible, but we all know that’s just the nature of the Beast. Everything is on Amazon, so you can go read it before you read this blog post if you want. You have been warned.
When we last saw Teddy, she and her boys were drawing a lot of magic through her. While this may have seemed like a good idea, it really wasn’t. It threw Teddy forward in time to the timeline she’s been visiting. Not only that, it appears to have burned out her magic, so she’s stuck. She may be stuck in the future with her husbands, but she still trying to get back to the past to her own time and to her boys there. She is doing a lot of studying and research and gets to see a lot of old friends, but she still is having issues. When she finally manages to make it back, thinking that she’s going to see Charlie, Gabe, and Darwin, it doesn’t turn out that way.
The only person there when Teddy gets back is Charlie. Gabe should be there, but isn’t. And Darwin isn’t quite bonded into their quaternion yet. Teddy gets really angry because the one thing she asked is that if something happened to her that Gabe not abandoned Charlie, but he appears to have done that. Especially since he’s currently in Darwin’s room. Which earns Darwin a black eye. Let’s just say that there is a lot of pain and anguish on everybody’s part right now.
Eventually, as the title suggests, the four of them get together and seal their bond. That’s pretty cool, and it gives them a lot of power. All that power is useful for trying to figure out who committed the murder. That looks like it’s going to be harder and harder, especially when Fate gets in the way.
I like Teddy. I just do. I have liked her throughout this whole series. Of course, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her faults, because she does. She jumps to conclusions quickly and doesn’t always get all the information before she acts. Some of that is just the fact that she is still fairly young, and she still needs time to mature. I think she’s like 19 or 20 in this. But, Teddy does have a very definite sense of what is right and wrong, and she is determined to make things right. She is also very loving, even though she’d like to come off as tougher than she is. She has a marshmallow inside.
We get to see Charlie start to come into his own in this. He has spent a lot of time just going along to get along. I don’t think that he has been unhappy, I just think that he is very mellow, and there has been a lot of drama with Gabe and Darwin. But, with the two of them gone at the beginning of the book, we get to see Charlie. We also get more about his feelings than we have before.
I understand why Gabe did what he did. It kind of made me mad, and it kind of made me sad. Gabe has a gentle nature, and sometimes it gets the better of him. I don’t think he’s fragile, per se, but Darwin did a number on him when he took Gabe away from Teddy. And he just hasn’t really bounced back yet. So, like I said, I understand why he made the choices he did.
I absolutely did not like Darwin at the beginning of the series. I wanted to punch him out myself. But EJ did manage to save him and actually make him likable. Does that mean he’s not still an asshole? Yeah, he’s still an asshole. But now he knows that he’s an ass, and he’s working to not be as much of an ass. He does have a lot of trauma in his history, and we’d learn about some of that. I had some of that, really I don’t blame him for it, it would upset me. In fact, it did upset me as I read it. And I read it twice. What’s as EJ sent it to me and then again in the book. Luckily, Teddy is pretty bound and determined to have her way about everything, and Darwin now has her on his side.
I really enjoyed the series. I got really invested in Teddy and her boys. I’ve also enjoyed reading Capricorn, which I will blog about next week. We get to see some really interesting things in that book.
So, that’s all for today. I’m losing my voice, so dictating is turning hard. Go check out this entire series and see what I liked it so much. Happy reading!
2022 was a bit of a dumpster fire. It wasn’t as bad as 2020, but then I think it would be nearly impossible for anything to be as bad as 2020. But it wasn’t good.
In my personal life, I started out 2022 with vertigo. It actually kicked in around February and didn’t really go away until June-ish. This means that I spent a lot of time just dizzy as fuck. That, of course, made driving interesting, and since I am currently the only driver in my house, I didn’t necessarily go a lot of places. I did see my doctor about it, but even now, we’re not sure why I had it, and we’re not sure why it’s gone, but it’s gone, so I’m just going to be happy with that.
Then in June, instead of being able to enjoy not being dizzy, I hurt my knees. I hurt both knees within a week of each other. My knees aren’t great, they haven’t been great for decades. I had a lot of trauma to both knees, but especially my right knee, while I was growing up. In 2000, I tore my right ACL by trying to learn how to ice skate. I lasted for about an hour on the ice before I fell and tore my ACL. 0 out of 10 do not recommend. I had surgery to repair that, which worked well, but that leg doesn’t go completely straight anymore. I also have arthritis in both knees, oh, worse in my right knee. I’ve had surgery to scrape some of the damage out of it in the past, and I’ll probably need that again soon. I am only 50, and I’m overweight, so a knee replacement is not in the near forecast for me. I now use a walker when I leave the house. I should have been using a cane for years, but I hate using a cane so I never did. I have a rollator, which is a walker that rolls and has a seat so I can sit when I need a break. It is a level up in my disability, which frustrates me, but it is also a way to have more mobility and more freedom. So it’s a trade-off.
In 2023, I am going to work on writing more in the blog since I haven’t written a whole lot lately. My goal is to publish at least two posts a week, and maybe free. But definitely two. That way I am still able to share my reading with you guys, but I am not burning myself out. Don’t forget, that my day job is also writing, only 400 word articles instead of blog posts. Writing 2800 words before I write a blog post sometimes means my brain is jelly at the end of the day.
Anyway, I have two new books from E.J. Frost coming up, the newest one from Kaye Elle Parker, one from Nicolina Martin, as well as some backlog books. My keyboard is still fucked up, and I haven’t gotten a Bluetooth keyboard yet, so I have a dictation program, and I am dictating this post as I speak. Pun fully intended.
Okay, that’s all the news that’s fit to print from me. And frankly, I’m not sure that it’s all that fit to print. I will be back on Wednesday with a new book to review. See you then!
