    1. Okay, so I needed a few days to collect my thoughts. This is not an easy book to rate - but let me try. First the cover: I was drawn to it. I love the darkness around it, but really only noticed that the heart looks like it's made of glass and only half filled. After reading the book, this seems very fitting ;)The title: The title felt intriguingly mysterious :) And it has a deeper meaningTHE STORY:This is technically book four of the series, but not all previous titles are released and this is [...]


    2. This is a tough one and not your grandmother's romance novel. Heck, it isn't even your mom's SF romance novel. It's complicated. It has a dark core. You need to pay attention and be able to retain the details for the story to have its full impact. It can be difficult.Why? Because the characters are, largely, not likeable on the surface. Most of them are quite dreadful, or revealed to be dreadful, but this is the novel's strongest point and in fact the central theme. Change. Growth. The delta sym [...]


    3. What an incredible gift, Ashlyn Forge, has for a plot driven story. This is the first book I have read by this author and I absolutely loved it. The complexity of her characters is amazing and the world she created is so dynamic, with so many layers that it just blew me away. If I tried to explain the characters and the world, I’d completely confuse you because it’s not something you can just reveal in a simple review, you have to read the story and live in the world with the characters.The [...]


    4. The other reviews I have read say it all, This was a exceptional read, a great book!This is certainly not my usual type of read and I did find myself getting a little confused in the beginning so I made sure to slow down my reading speed which allowed me to take in every detail.I enjoyed the story, the characters kept my emotions on a high and it was actually really exciting to read something totally different from my normal reads! The author has a wonderful imagination and writes beautifully! I [...]


    5. Being an avid lover of science fiction I was really looking forward to reading this story. It didn't disappointment either - I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys getting emerged in a crazy futuristic dystopian world with complex characters.

    6. This review can be found at The Blogger Girls review site.4.5 starsA few months ago, I read a story that not only blew my socks off but made me immediately want to read the sequel AND purchase the print books of both stories. In Liam's Wake (see my review here) was a ball of craziness I could not let go. I was nervous the sequel wouldn't live up to it but, to my pleasure, it was so much betterThis is the journey that Johann Andreas IV takes from being a self-conscious, overweight nobody to a per [...]


    7. Note: This book may not be available in the near future. For some reason, the author saw fit to remove her ebooks from the vending sites and only the paperback versions are left for sale. We don't know for how long. In any case, I still love this book and its world and will continue to support author Ashlyn Forge. Original Blog Post: headouttheoven/20This just totally blew my mind, surprising me on so many levels I have lost count.This is a very complicated story, so I am not going to attempt to [...]


    8. When I wrote From Johann To Tannenbaum, I'd lost my mind a little bit. It wasn't for long, but I really wasn't in a good place.Incidentally, that was also when I found myself feeling distant to all the seemingly perfect romance characters out there. "He was gorgeous, perfect body, beautiful eyes," etc. etc. All the characters were 'just' magically available to start dating. And all were capable of love and being loved (in some degree). Or there was the other extreme, instead of perfectly beautif [...]


    9. This story to me is about personal exploration and growth, no matter what walk of life you come from.Johann, raised in "the belly" of the colony as a nobleman has to learn to grow and become self sufficient and realize just because it is hard, doesn't mean it isn't worth it. The growing that Tanner needs is learning to accept help and communication. Through this story, Johann did nothing but royally pissme off with his horrible decisions. I almost had to stop reading at a point, he majorly upset [...]


    10. This is a hard book to explain. It messed up my brain and my heart in so many ways, I wanted to punch something.I fell in love with Liam from the start and I loved him no matter what happened. Johann was an entirely different story. I did love him for the most part, but I so wanted to punch him at times, shake him, tell him he’s acting like a total douche, an insecure wreck, etc. I had moments when I thought he was dropped as a baby, like a lot, and others when I thought he was brilliant. He c [...]


    11. From Johann to Tannenbaum: A standalone Novel (Toys and Soldiers)Author: Ashlyn ForgeISBN: 061596072Published: November 5,2013I love to read a wide spectrum of books. Reading “From Johann to Tannenbaum: A standalone Novel (Toys and Soilders) took me a bit by surprise. I have read my share of m/m fiction, as well as sci-fi but I have never read them in the same book. It was a welcome surprise as well as a chance to read some things perhaps out of my comfort zone.Immediately I was drawn in my th [...]


    12. This Dystopian novel, From Johann to Tannenbaum by Ashlyn Forge! Johann is a wealthy guy who is not always the most likable character in the book. He is beautiful and has such low self-esteem issues. He is the heir to his grandfathers will but not everything goes as planned or as Johann expected them to go. In this underground colony where he was born there are two main important factors that everyone considers to be very vital. The first one is his name, as this determines his wealth and standi [...]


    13. Okay, so I am familiar with the Ashlyn Forge's first book in the Toys and Soldiers series, and I thought after reading that one that the world she created was really cool. But after this one, I cannot wait for future works. This book is the perspective and story of a whole new set of characters. With the occasional appearance from Liam of the first book, In Liam's Wake. In the beginning of this story, we first meet up with one our main characters, Johann, and learn a bit about him and his family [...]


    14. Imagine a Colony situated in a cavern deep below the earth's surface. In this world lives Johann IV, scion of a rich family. He has been spoiled by his grandfather, his mother keeps telling him how useless he is. Then, at the start of the book, his grandfather dies, and he is determined to take over the family business. What could possibly go wrong? Well, everything, basically.Johann is a character with very definite flaws. He has no impulse control, is an attention-seeker, self-pitying and enti [...]


    15. Filled with love, trust, betrayal, and promises, "From Johann to Tannenbaum" is definitely one of those bittersweet tales. Don't worry. It's a good story.The fourth book in the Toys and Soldiers series, this is actually a stand-alone novel that just happens to exist in the same world as the trilogy before it.Johann is not a hero. Reading his tale, you can tell this. He's miserable, overweight sometimes, and has a habit of stealing, but what's endearing about him is the fact that he tries. All he [...]


    16. Received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. And I must say that Ashlyn Forge has done it again!!!!! This is book 4 in the series and it is AWESOME and I do mean AWESOME!!! There is so much going on in this story - you have love,hate,deceit, And so much more. This is one book that you really have to read. The story starts out with the death of the grandfather and the grandson is so upset about it. He believes that he is next in line to take over running the school. However, [...]


    17. 3.5 StarsAshlyn Forge has a very easy to read style of storytelling, one that flows smoothly, though there were a few scenes in the book that I felt slowed down the pace of the story a bit, as those scenes only reiterated certain plot points that had already been made very clear rather than moving the story forward. Overall, however, as a huge fan of Alt U/Fantasy, I can say I liked From Johann to Tannenbaum, owing in large part to Tanner himself. He and his sweet and kind nature were the saving [...]


    18. This is Sci-fi at it's best!!!! Do you love a long wonderful story that is full of angst at it's finest? You will love this book. Be warned you will want to go into the story and kick major Butt!!!This is a dark story and you will want to shake Johann! He is a spoiled brat which is hard to deal with until you learn the reason behind the behavior!You will watch Tanner go from tragic to strong and sure of himself!!At the end of the book you will root for both characters and fall in love with them! [...]


    19. Read in draft form - This is another story set in 'The Colony' which is a dark and dangerous place, this time, we follow Johann Andreas IV and the challenges he faces. If you like sci-fi, legends, and love, I recommend you try this one.


    20. My full review is posted here: wp/p3IGfR-4C.Overall, it was a fun science fiction dystopia with some male-male romance perks thrown in. I would hardily recommend it, especially if you read the first one, In Liam's Wake.
