Part 1 was great, Part 2 is even better. I love Ally's twist on how Rayea was made vampire. Rayea's time in the House of G was a great storyline, the characters are well developed & the story is fast paced. Can't wait to read more!
I have to say, I loved the first two installments but this one blows those out of the water! I loved it! This one had everything! There is even a little Egyptian mythology thrown in. I won't ruin it for anyone, but this is a must read. Great job, Ally!
This is a fantastic read! I sometimes read 2-3 books at a time & I pushed aside others because I couldn't put this down. I loved the Spirit Guides and their wings with the changing colors. I loved the characters! The story had a great plot and it all came together nicely. Christy Sloat is very creative and she tells Avery's story beautifully. There is a bit of romance, some suspense and paranormal. The storyline is very easy to follow and captivating. I can't wait to read the next installment!
I really enjoyed this book. I had been told by several people that it was a must read & I am glad I did. In this book we met Celeste, Gabe, and their little sister, Kendall. After a bunch of break-ins at their home, they are sent to live in a small town in Tennessee with their grandmother. They really don't like it, but decide to make the best of it. Things start to happen and Celeste finds out that she is they are the "chosen ones" and it is up to her and her siblings to save the world from an evil being who wants to take over.
This is a fast and easy read. The chapters are fast to get through and you won't want to stop until you have finished. Definitely a must read for any paranormal fans out there.
This book was given to me by the author for review.
A big fan of the authors of Night Marchers, I was really excited to see what they did with this story. I love dystopian books and this one did not disappoint. Project ELE takes place in a future where global warming and disease have made it so that only the chosen healthy people can enter shelters set up by them. We meet Willow and her friends Claire, Connor, and Alec. Trying to adjust to life in the shelter, they explore to alleviate their boredom. As they explore the mountain more and more, exploration turns into a fight for their lives and they soon realize that they have developed paranormal abilities. Willow more so than her friends. The people running things soon find out and they want Willow.
This was a very easy, fast paced read that you won't want to end. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series. If you are a YA fan, you will LOVE this book!
After reading the first book in this series (The Conduit), I knew I had to read the second book. And just like the first, it had me hooked within the first few pages. This was an amazing read and an excellent continuation of the series. In this book, Celeste has come to terms with being the "Chosen One" although it is wreaking havoc with her life. She is just trying to be a normal teenager and it isn't working out so well. Then she meets the handsome & mysterious Caleb, who has a secret of his own.
A fast paced read with lots of snappy one-liners, it is action packed and humorous as well (just wait until you meet the Dark Army Glee Club)! If you loved The Conduit, you will love Embrace even more!

This book is packed full of suspense, action, romance, and paranormal happenings. You won't want to put it down until you have finished it!
This is a really great book. Having been to Hawaii before, I really loved the history & cultural things put into the book. Love Kai & Emma. There is so much about this book that I totally loved. If you haven't read it, don't miss out!
I grabbed this book awhile back after getting a free download code for it, if you can believe it, off a radio show. My good friend, Alexandra Anthony, was on & Carole was another guest author. So, I downloaded it & loaded it to my iPad & there it sat.
I was in the mood for something different from the normal genres I read & while perusing my iBooks, the cover caught my eye. I am so glad I stopped to read it. Lily of the Springs is a fantastic read. It was heartwarming, funny, heart wrenching and so many other emotions. It tells the story of Lily, a teenager growing up in rural Kentucky (where I live now!) & her struggles to overcome the standards that were set for women back in the 50′s & 60′s. She married to an abusive with the man she thought she loved, who can only show any kind of real emotion towards her after he has hit her.
Most of the chapters start with a recipe & I recognized a lot of them, as my neighbor (who grew up here) makes them for my family from time to time. After talking to her & reading the book, it was amazing how much I related to the Kentucky of that time.
It is a deeply moving story & I was hooked from the opening line: “I knew my marriage was in trouble the night my husband brought home a streetwalker to teach me how to satisfy him.”
If you are looking for a read that you will never forget, one that will touch your heart & soul, this is it.
