- Angel Evolution
on April 17, 2012
Angel Evolution gives a new meaning to dark and light. In this book, the author takes the reader on a journey that makes the heart race and leaves the reader wanting more. The unexpected twists only adds to the excitement. When Taylor's journey begins, she's a normal young woman starting college and just looking for that normal college experience. She wants a memorable time in college. She get all of that and more once she meets Gabriel and Christopher. Gabriel is an angel and Christopher is a demon.She's instantly part of an old war between the two and finding out her true feelings when it comes to Gabriel.
The plot flows nicely throughout the book and it's always adding to the adventure. I think the author did an exceedingly great job writing this book. The book deals with demons and angels. But it's no where near a "religious" book. I would recommend it to all YA readers. I give this book 5 (five) stars.
- Centauri Dawn, a sci-fi romance
on April 17, 2012
Centauri Dawn by Cynthia Woolf takes the reader on an unexpected journey. It opens a world to the reader that, to my knowledge, has yet to be explored- Life in other places within the universe. Cynthia builds a good new world that captures the reader. The plot runs smooth although it does seem rushed in places, such as the end of this book. There were some format issues with the eBook I downloaded. I noticed places where editing seemed to have lacked.
I enjoyed getting to know the main character, Audra. Although it did seem like she was more teen then adult with some of her reactions to how her life takes a drastic turn. I would think being an adult, she would have a melt down, pull herself together, and learn about what it was she was about to face. Instead, it seemed she did a lot of whining. I did like the relationship portrayed between Audra and Darius, her bodyguard. The romantic aspects were well played out throughout the book.
I give Centauri Dawn by Cynthia Woolf **** (4 stars). I would recommend this book as a read to others who are looking for another world within a book.
- Energy - The Awakening
on June 12, 2012
Energy- The Awakening by MJ Schutte is an original story with the power to pull in the reader. Brighton and Lily, the main characters, have known each other their entire lives and fell in love. Both don't realize they love each other until they are separated and told that the other has died. Once reunited, they are faced with a line of events they have to deal with in order to survive and make the world they live in a better place.
While going through the events, Brighton realizes he has powers that make him the most powerful within his world. His powers to feel the presence of others and to manipulate the energies around him, which save him and Lily several times.
MJ Schutte creates a unique world that is full of chaos and Brighton has to fight for the lives of those around him. The plot flows well although at times it seems as if they are all really young and need the supervision of adults. I found myself laughing out loud and even crying in parts. I very much enjoyed reading this well written book. I give this book 4 **** stars.
- Zola's Pride (Southern Arcana, #2.5)
on June 12, 2012
Zola's Pride by Moira Rogers is a great short read for those who like small quick books. In fact, I feel it was too short. The short story seemed to pull me in from the beginning although it seems to leave out a lot of information I would have loved to know. The plot seemed to be well thought out as was the characters.
With a touch of romance and a bit of action, I give this book four **** stars. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it and I look forward to reading more of Moira Rogers work. I must say this author is talented and her work is intriguing.
- The Vampire Hunter's Daughter: Part I
on June 18, 2012
The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright is the first in a series of short stories. From the beginning of the story, Chloe's life is full of action and fighting. The way the beginning starts off directly to the point and full of action pulled me right in. I was hooked. I started this book an hour ago looking for something to take me away while I had a moment to relax. I must say this was the perfect choice.
Chloe, 14 years old, is pulled out of her sleep and witnesses what no child her age should, her mother murdered right in front of her. She's taken away to her mothers family, a bunch of Vampire Hunters, and now she's out for revenge for the murder of her mother. I give this short story 5 ***** stars. I can't wait to see what happens next.
