I was excited to begin reading Night Unbound the fifth Immortal Guardian novel by Dianne Duvall. This action packed paranormal suspense series has a unique twist on vampires and immortals with heated swoon-worthy romances. In Night Unbound, we get Zach and Lisette’s story wrapped in danger and a strengthening of the Immortal Guardians.
Fans of the Weird Girls series are going to love the glimpse back offered in A Curse Awakened by Cecy Robson. We travel back to the time right before the sister’s headed for Tahoe. We learn how they break the binding spell that is messing with their abilities. Action-packed, A Curse Awakened is filled with humor and danger as it answers questions about the girls’ powers and introduces them to the supernatural world.
The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness has been an absolute favorite. Matthew and Diana’s love affair and quest to find Ashmole 782 has taken us all over the globe from present day and to the past. It shares a passionate romance to rock the ages and a quest filled with danger, magic and lose. I have laughed, swooned, pounded my fists and wept. As I embarked on my journey with The Book of Life, I did so hesitantly and hoped Harkness would protect my heart. I needed have worried my final visit with the Clairmont’s, and Diana Bishop was everything I hoped for and more.
Allegiance is the fourth novel in Susannah Sandlin’s Penton Legacy series, and I was eager to get back to this small-town and its characters. Sandlin’s paranormal romantic suspense series has been intense from the first book, with fleshed out characters, and an action-backed plot. While Sandlin does a great job of filling in the details, I highly recommend reading the Penton series in order. Each tale continues the overall arc and tells the story of one couple. Allegiance grabbed me from page one, and had me holding my breath, swooning and laughing.
Confession; I have mad love for the Weird Girls series and author Cecy Robson. When I got my hands on an early copy of Cursed by Destiny there may or may not have been a lot of fangirl squealing. Once again, Robson had me in her grips as she took me through this action–packed installment that gave us more of Aric and Celia while having us battle the Tribe. Mini review: My thoughts on closing the book-intense, kick-ass, action-packed and Cecy Robson is evil, evil, evil.
Since the beginning, I have loved Andrew Fukuda’s twisted Hunt trilogy. His unique take on vampires in The Hunt and then the mind-bending twists of The Prey. The Trap was one of my most anticipated books for 2013 and boy howdy, Fukuda did not disappoint. The Trap was a non-stop, action packed tale, with a conclusion that once again blew my mind. Mini review: smart, spine-chilling, with intense action scenes and revelations that will leave you screaming!
