Grimoire Books 1+2 Reviews by S.M. Boyce Tour Stop!

The Grimoire turns its own pages and can answer any question asked of it...and Kara Magari is its next target.

Kara has no idea what she's getting herself into when she stumbles across the old book while hiking along a hidden trail. Once she opens it, she's thrown into Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying beings that all want the Grimoire's secrets. Everyone in this new world is trying to find her, and most of them want to control the new-found power the Grimoire bestows upon her.

Braeden Drakonin grew up in Ourea, and all he’s ever known in life is lying. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. He has one question to ask the book—-one question that can fix everything in his broken life—-and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer.

There's no escaping Ourea

There was so much that I absolutely adored about this book, I was a little iffy when I read the synopsis of it, figuring I could help out with the tour I decided to give it a shot and boy am I ever glad that I did.

This book had allot of trace elements from other fantasy hits, from Narnia to Lord of the Ring's I could definitely see the influence and inspiration that came with it, but more then that I saw how the author created their own diverse world that was beautiful and creative.

I love the well rounded character's, nothing is worse then finding a character and not being able to connect with them, or growling in frustration because you can't understand them. This author made the character's so realistic that It was as if they were friends in real life and I was reading a documentary on their life.

It truly is amazing the creativity that comes with Fantasy and the ability to create a realistic world hidden within our own but this author did it and then some.

5 out of 5!

Ourea has always been a deadly place. The lichgates tying the hidden world to Earth keep its creatures at bay—for now.

Kara Magari ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea and found the Grimoire: a powerful artifact filled with secrets. To protect the one person she has left, she strikes a deal that goes against everything she believes in. But things don’t go as planned.

Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood.

To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.


I had high hopes for this book when it came to the series, I was so in love with the first book I didn't think that it could get any better, boy was I wrong.

Treason went far beyond my expectations. It was vivid and full of action, with suspense around every corner that kept my eyes glued to the pages as I tried to figure out what was going to happen next.
This roller coaster ride constantly had me sitting back with a stunned look on my face as I tried to figure out the way my mind had been played.

I loved the darker feel of the book, you really get into the mechanisms of the world that S.M. Boyce has created.

In this book we get to witness the way Kara and Braedon's relationship is developing.

I think my favorite aspect of this book was that one major twist that is so sneaky in development that it is like a soccer punch to the face, you find yourself breathless and stunned as it reveals it's true self.

I am so excited for the next installment of the series that it is the worst kind of torture! >.<

5 out of 5 Raven's!
