I am continuing the Psy-Changeling series with book two Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh. She has created a world with changelings (shifters), humans and Psy who live connected mentally to a hive network. Visions of Heat delivered an action packed paranormal romantic suspense filled with suspense and heat. Singh pulls you into the story and you quickly find yourself immersed in this world.
Sanctum by Sarah Fine is the first in the Guards of Shadowlands and it rocked my ears. Last year I listened to Sarah Fine’s adult urban fantasy series Servants of Fae and loved them. Blogger friends proclaimed I had to listen/read her YA fantasy and I grabbed Sanctum narrated by Amy McFadden. From the world building to the swoony romance and dark corridors beyond the gate, I easily slipped into this world.
Calamity by Brandon Sanderson is the last novel in the Reckoners series and one of my most highly anticipated audiobooks this year. I have had such a blast listening to MacLeod Andrews narrates this action-packed series and love the characters within. Sadly, while I enjoyed Calamity it ended up fizzling and did not deliver the intense epic final battle I craved.
Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall is the first book in the Immortal Guardians paranormal romantic suspense series. I actually came to this series with Darkness Rises, book four, and have since read five, and six. It was good going back to the beginning. Darkness Dawns was a hot, action-packed story that delivered the perfect escape read.
Deceptions by Kelley Armstrong, is the third book in her urban fantasy series Cainsville. Filled with Fae, omens and suspense I have come to love this series. It has an old mystery flair to it that reminds me of thrillers from my childhood. Deceptions suffered from middle book syndrome but had bits I thoroughly enjoyed.
The One You Want by Gena Showalter is book 0.5 in the Original Heartbreakers series. I listened to the story narrated by Savannah Richards. I loved the small-town setting and concept, but The One You Want felt too over the top and ended up falling short for me.
Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick offered up a historical romance wrapped in a murder mystery filled with twist, turns and plenty of heat.
