    I really enjoyed this book.The author throws unexpected things into the plot at just the point you think there is nothing new that can be thrown in.The only problem with the book,which really isn't a problem,just me wanting more,is that it leaves you with a cliffhanger,which most good books do.I waited for half the book for that cliffhanger to be revealed and when it was you are left not knowing the main character's response to it.So,I guess I will have to wait for book two. The book is about a girl name Andrea,who was raised by her Uncle Greg because her mom died and no one knows who her father is or what happened to him.Uncle Greg is alittle over the top with his vampire tales.Andrea grows up believing her uncle is a little crazy but when she moves to a new town to attend college,things that he uncle told her seem to have some truth or maybe she is just imagining things.She falls in love with a gorgeous,sweet guy.But could he be a vampire? And if the tales about vampires are true could the tales about vampire hunters be true too?How will this affect her and Shane's relationship,especially when Uncle Greg decides to come to Christmas dinner?

    SHATTER was a great continuation of DAZZLE.It picks up right where Dazzle left off.I love the way it ended.Though we are still unsure about what is going to happen to Sam now,it isn't the big cliffhanger like in DAZZLE.I am more in love with Sam now then I was in SHATTER. Delaney has been kidnapped by the Sarafites and stripped of her power.She is imprisoned with two other Ekloge warriors.Sam and Micah both want Delaney back but Micah refuses to work with Sam.Sam seeing no other choice,tries to rescue Delaney himself.Things don't according to plan but Sam does find her, along with someone else expectantly.Delaney tries to stay mad at Sam and deny her feelings for him to no avail.Meanwhile,Micah along with some old and new friends seek out of Zerach's compound and embark on their own rescue mission.Getting is will be the easy part,getting out will prove to be a significant challenge with decisions that can end up being devastating to our Ekloge Warriors.Will they succeed in their rescue? Will all our Warriors make it out alive? And will Sam make another decision that has devastating consequences?

    I didn't know what to expect out of a Christian Paranormal Romance but I am glad I gave it a chance.It really spoke to me.It helped me see the Light in my own darkness.The Scriptures used were perfect to convey the message in this book.Nathaniel see the world how most of us see it :if we are good then we deserve good and how many Christians see the world:if I follow God then we will not suffer." We forget that even though Job was righteous is God's eyes,he still suffered and he held on to his trust that God was in control so he was blessed even more than he was before his time of suffering.Jesus suffered,The Disciples suffered,others who have spread the Gospel suffered so what makes us think we are excepted? I think we subconsciously look at the good part of promises of prosperity and blessings without examining all of what God said.He never promised we wouldn't suffer,he actually said we would,but he will walk us through the storm. We lose hope and forget to trust Him to lead us through because all we can see is the darkness,so we take control and instead of being lead by Him out of the darkness we stumble around in it then wonder why we can't see the Light. Nathaniel was accustomed to living a blessed life.So when darkness falls on him,he believes he is out of God's reach.He never stops believing in God,he just loses hope that God can reach into the darkness to bring him back to the light.Then he meets Lilly,who despite her suffering,has hope.But Nathaniel still has to decide if he is going to just stand in the shadows of light that Lilly projects or if he is going to walk fully into the light.

    I love this story but it was so short.I can't wait for ARMORED HEARTS to be released so I can find out what happens next.It is a fast paced and emotional read.A hastily decision may cost Ansleigh and her young son,Tristan,their lives.. Ansleigh wanted what everyone wants,someone to love her.But when she gives up her life in the Seelie Fairy Court to find love in the mortal world,things don't turn out as she planned.Now she seeks forgiveness and entry back into the Fairy world but what she finds is more than she expected.She needs healing from her mother,a healer but that may not be as easy as she thought.He decision affected ad cost more than she ever imagined.Can she be forgiven and return home or were her actions too much for this?Will she find healing for her and her son?What price would you pay for love? Before you answer that question,make sure you know the whole costs or you may find yourself paying more than you intended to,just like Ansleigh.

    This an awesome story!I love the way God is subtly worked into the story.The interaction between the charaters is phenomenal.One boy whose only goal in life is to be invisible learns there maybe more to life than just surviving.One girl turns his life upside down and shows him how to live.Things at his home with his grandfather aren't all what they seem to be.Unknown to him,he is destine for a greater purpose.
