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!
One Lucky Vampire is the nineteenth book in the Aregeneau Vampire series by Lynsay Sands, and I was a little leery jumping in so late into the game, but it ended up being a good read. I had no difficulties as it appears each tale involves one immortal vampire, one mystery/case and a human who becomes their mate. Mini-review: steamy, insta-love, humor and suspense.
Last year I read The Hallowed Ones and loved the tale Laura Bickle gave us. It was one of my favorite reads, and I was on pins and needles to begin The Outside. Bickle continued Katie’s journey and kept me on the edge of my seat, as we faced danger, death and a freaky solution in this dystopian world. Mini review: brilliant, captivating and a wonderful conclusion..
Darkness Rises by Dianne Duvall quickly reminded me why I enjoy paranormal romances wrapped in suspense and a little paranormal woo-woo. While this was my first Duvall novel and the fourth in the Immortal Guardians series, this worked wonderfully as a standalone. Fans of Laurie London’s Sweetblood series will love the fast-pace, characters and sizzling romance that Duvall delivers. Three word review: suspenseful, romantic and action-packed.
Pretty When She Destroys was an exciting, powerful conclusion to the Pretty When She Dies series by Rhiannon Frater. I love Frater’s dark and gritty take on paranormal romance and the fleshed out, vibrant and fresh characters she creates. I devoured this and was sad to say good-bye to this trilogy. Three word review: action-packed, awesome and addicting!
I am not Russian, and I have never been to Russia, but I absolutely love books set in any era of Russia. And because of that, I have immensely enjoyed the Katerina Trilogy by Robin Bridges. The Morning Star the third and finally book in this non-stop action tale of Katerina Alexandrovna, Duchess of Oldenburg, necromancer who longs to be a doctor in a world of men. Bridges delivered a tale, froth with danger, and weaved in a sweet romance. Three word review: captivating, suspenseful, and heartwarming.
