I'm a 37 year old mother of 5 and grandmother of 1.

I haven't published any novels, but my poetry and short stories have been published in the past.

I received a link to this book through facebook. It sounded interesting, so I popped over and downloaded it figuring I'd start reading it on Sunday. Start reading it... ha! I Started all right, and didn't even stop to go the the bathroom until I'd finished it! It's got a great plot line, and you're immediately involved with the characters. There is plenty of mystery, action, and romance to keep those pages turning. Although the book feels a little rushed and predictable, it does keep the plot moving ahead nicely, and there is a lovely little twist towards the end that might just surprise you. There are some beautiful themes woven into the story, but you never feel "stuck" reading a romance novel or a mystery, etc. It's a lovely nix of them all. I also liked that the Main female shows strength and weakness, but stays true to certain values.
I was so excited to read the preview for the next book, and simply can not wait to read it and see what happens next. It's over all well written and not riddled with the usual typographical errors that often plague books given out for free. It is indeed a finished novel that is well written and includes some comical thoughts and happenings that make you feel like the characters could be you. I would recommend this book for the Young Adults and Adults alike. I would warn parents of younger children that there are some scenes of "making out", assault, and slight gore that are fairly typical in a novel involving Vampires and Werewolves. Please read first and decide if it's appropriate for your younger reader.
It was a really enjoyable read, and I would say if you are a fan of, P.C. and Kristen Cast, Laurell K Hamilton, Rachel Meade and the like, then chances are you're going to enjoy this and be as drawn in as I was. Great job Ms. Gossett. Can't wait to read more!

I read the first one in this series 2 days ago, and found it enjoyable enough to purchase this book, the second in the series. I enjoyed the first book and rated it 4 stars. I LOVED this book and gave it a solid 5. I have to tell you that this is one of the MOST enjoyable one sitting reads I have read in a long time. The writer keeps things moving quickly without making the reader feel "pushed" through the story and without leaving the reader feeling like they've missed out on important pieces of the story. You can instantly identify with the characters and their feelings. You understand why they make the choices they make and why they say the things they say and don't say. There are just enough funny moments in the story, but it isn't so much that you feel like you're watching a parody. There are twists and turns, but not to worry... the writer doesn't leave you "lost in the woods" for long before she gives you the information you need to continue on through the journey that is the plot line. It's well written and easy to read, but not in a way that makes the older readers feel like our hands are being held. After reading both novels, I went to the authors web site and found out she does NOT use an editor! This explains why the first book was offered for free and I was able to purchase the second for one $2.99! Thank you Mrs. Hahn! This is an incredible gift to book readers! You've given us an amazing book series that is well written, east to read and marvelously fun all at a bargain price! I can't wait to read what you have in store for us next!
