- Dark Promises: A Novella
on June 13, 2011
I purchased the novella, Dark Promises, by Christie Silvers because I have read her entire Alex and Fiona series and really enjoyed it. Christie Silvers writes paranormal romance and we all know that paranormal is my favorite genre to read.
So, there is only one word for Dark Promises and that is HOT! The first thing I need to say is that it is absolutely not for young adults, it is erotica. I don’t normally read erotica because a lot of what you find doesn’t have a good story line, but Dark Promises has a super story line that keeps the reader intrigued.
In Dark Promises Sabrina desperately wants her longtime vampire boyfriend, Joshua to change her. He has promised that he will, but then they are suddenly attacked when they get a surprise visit from Joshua’s disgruntled brother.
I’m not going to leave any spoilers, but if you like a hot, sexy read that actually has a good storyline then you should definitely read Dark Promises.
- The Dragon Whore
on June 15, 2011
The Dragon Whore by Richard I. Prescott was a great read for a short story. It isn’t horribly graphic so you can’t judge a book by its title. In this short story Richard I. Prescott takes us into Amsterdam and Thorne House, where the whores aren’t merely prostitutes, they are artists. Sir Fredrick Lurmack becomes drawn to Jeanski, who is kind to him, but does not choose him for her companion each night. In the midst of Lurmack trying to get a night with Jeanski his assistant disappears without a trace.
I found this story intriguing because I don’t normally read short stories that sit well with me; I’m really sort of a novel length kind of girl. The end was good enough to leave me wondering, but not so much that I was angry it ended because I wanted more.
The other two stories, The Witch of Snowdonia and A Cold Heart were good too. My favorite of all three was The Dragon Whore, but I did like The Witch of Snowdonia quite a bit because it gave an insight into the main character and the witch, I don’t really want to say a whole lot because the story is so short and I don’t want to give anything away. But it is good.
I’ll say, for the last story, A Cold Heart, that I totally love the idea of an entire town being unexpectedly iced over. That was an excellent concept, but A Cold Heart took a lot more to keep my attention than the other two did.
- Spaztastic Zombies
on Nov. 13, 2011
This little book is so great. I loved it! I am a frequent reader of Tammy Lee Morris and her freelance work, so her love of zombies is well known with me. Tammy Lee Morris wrote this little book and it works almost as a guide on how to deal with any situation you might find yourself in with a zombie.
My favorite parts of “Spaztastic Zombies,” were the zombie beauty tips and games you can play with zombies. The games you can play with zombies part actually made me think of those commercials for “Messin with Sasquatch.”
If you like zombies, or even if you don’t, and you need a good laugh you should give this one a try.
Also, if you are anticipating a zombie apocalypse and need some tips or a guide, then you should pick this up because it is chalk full of useful information. There is even a little bit of history about zombies.
- The Dark Gifts Birthright
on Feb. 18, 2012
I am completely shocked that I hadn't read this book before! I am totally taken with the characters, the story, everything. I love how Willow Cross writes! Her writing is fluid and she takes us through a story well. Birthright begins with Liz going before the council, but then it takes us back to her memory of how she got there. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to pull this off and she did a great job with doing it a few times in the beginning to let us know how Liz got where she was and also where the story was going. Loved it and props for pulling that off without a hitch.
Ok! Love me some vampires and some witches!
Also, I’m going to say again that I love fight scenes and there are a few in this book. So, I was happy with them.
I have to say that my favorite part of this book is the vampire connection with the vampire and the maker. I love this. For some it is of a parent and child, for some it is a connection of lovers, and no one else can come close to the connection that a vampire and their maker have. The connected vampires have a psychic connection as well. This part of the book, is literally the love story for me. Even the vampires who are connected as parent and child…the connection is basically the essence of their being. I’m very impressed with the story Willow Cross has given us here.
The story in Birthright comes full circle and leaves us satisfied, but wanting more from the author. I highly recommend her books. I also finished Oceans of Red and that was great too.
- Oceans of Red Volume One
on Feb. 18, 2012
Oceans of Red was a great read. I have been really getting into the post apocalyptic stories lately and I was very surprised when I picked up Oceans of Red because it was different from the rest. This book, is not about zombies taking over or anything, it’s about demons invading the human race. I like it when I get a nice change of pace from what I’ve been reading.
So anyway. I loved Remy and her character. I’ve been around military since I’ve been married, 11 years now, so I thought Willow Cross did a great job with Remy’s father being military and how his way of controlling everything just wasn’t working against the demons.
I absolutely loved the relationship between Remy, Greg, and Shane. These three are wonderful siblings, but I have to say that I think Shane might be my favorite because she is the underdog, the one everyone underestimates because she is small and hasn’t been allowed to fight. But, the girl is a genius! And besides being smart, she can do all sorts of other cool things like hypnosis!
Oceans of Red is kind of short, more of a novella. But, I’ve really been into reading novella’s lately anyway because I’ve been so busy.
I am a huge fan of fight scenes in books and Willow Cross did a great job with the fight scenes. I’m working on one of her other books, Birth Right, right now, and it has some great fight scenes in it too. I am very critical of fight scenes because I like to see them play out like I would in a movie and I wasn’t disappointed with them in this book.
