  • Vampires Rule on April 15, 2013

    Jack a.k.a. Jackpot, a 17 year old teenager is attacked by a werewolf leaving him for dead but is saved by a vampire, by transforming him into one. Ten years later, while visiting his graveyard, vampire Jackpot tries to save a beautiful girl from a werewolf, although he knows that even a scratch from the creature means death. Miracles of miracles, Jack instead of dyeing turns into what he always wanted to be … a human, a 'normal' human that can go to school and have a normal life. He meets Silver, a strong, beautiful, soul-sucker werewolf hunter, and she tells him that he has a destiny to fulfill. If that wasn’t enough for Jackpot to hear she also tells him that everything paranormal wants him dead. So, a normal life, huh? Not a chance when wraiths, vampires, werewolves, fairies, hunters, protective girlfriend’s parents or single minded brothers want to tear you to pieces. The characters were wonderful; my favorite character was Jersey Clifford (the teacher). I liked how he was refined and calculating, I wish there was more info about him because he is such an interesting character…maybe in the next book we’ll see more. What I didn’t like in the book were the warnings like ‘if it’s too dangerous don’t do it’ or ‘ today we’ve done a lot, let’s leave it for tomorrow’, the way some characters were introduced, distance and time related measurements, things seem to be repeated, the plot was a bit too predictable, some grammar and typo errors. The story line is fresh at least I haven't read a vamp/were book like this. The world is a unique one, has a great background history, I love it when an author questions the stereo types put on the supernatural and makes up their own rules it makes for a more interesting read if you have a whole new set of rules to play by. Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
  • Cherishing Destiny on April 23, 2013

    Cherishing Destiny starts with Destiny hurt and trapped in an obscure cave, who while she heals her wounds dreams/remembers her mother’s memories. Aurora and Alex, Vampire Elders who have been in love for more than a thousand years... are one night loving each other when they witness a strange Solar Storm where everything changes. Sara, the lovely human maid, happens to be near the Elders when the house is destroyed and the world changes. All electronic devices are out of order, streets are covered by fallen trees, and towns are flooded. The tree of them become close, intimately close, while during the day they find shelter and stay away from deadly hunters, during their nights they love each other. Ryan, a sexy, strong, kind werewolf, who became my favorite character, is Sara’s half-brother, has a special connection with Destiny, and tries to help and save the day whenever he can. The book treats the Vampire/Were/Hunter/Witch/Human in a different way, the Vamps and Weres don’t hate each other, both fear the hunters and the big bad Witch, and are known to exist by humans. It's sharp, elegant, and clever, evenly paced without dragging its feet, and at the same time emotionally intense, contains plenty of steamy scenes that leave you panting. This book is the first installment of a series and I hope that in the next book I can find out why Destiny is trapped, what happened to her mother, what did the witch has planned, how the lives of new species of vampire continue, how are council politics going and more Ryan! Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
  • The House at Cobb End on June 08, 2013

    I really liked this short. The inventive, unique writing that I love so much about Karen Chance, was once again displayed, even in such a short story and we got a little expansion on Pritkins history and his origins. And we see singing!
  • Prophecy Of The Female Warrior on June 14, 2013

    Prophecy of the Female Warrior is the first book in the series by K.A. Young. ***May contain minor spoilers*** The story starts with the funeral of Joe, Anna’s dear husband, where she finds by touching his corpse that his death wasn’t what it looked like. After the funeral and several days after she feels observed and followed. Her sister, Julie tries to cheer her up and Dan, Joe’s brother, is worried about her and acts a bit too protective. Eli is a very tall, full of secrets, sexy warrior, that with his calming voice and his beautiful eyes, convinces Anna to fallow him to his house where she discovers and becomes what she really is, while step by step they become close and intimate. Their moments together are hot! Elise becomes her best friend and tries to help her in whatever she can, giving her protection, advice and even helps her seduce her bodyguard in order to leave. My favorite character is Torch! He’s hot, funny, (he’s embarrassing moments reminds me somehow of Rhage from the BDB series by J.R. Ward) he’s also a warrior and he’s Anna’s personal defensive and fight trainer. All that fight and power goes up Anna’s head and she thinks she is invincible and she can treat people disrespectfully. Nyoka has somehow double personality, one hand he’s evil incarnate and on the other hand, he’s like an educated aristocrat that would give, say, and behave correctly and do for you whatever you desire with the condition to spend time with him. The book turns into a love triangle between Anna, Eli and Nyoka that leaves us wanting to know who Anna will choose to mate with…I hope we’ll find out in the next book. Prophecy of the Female Warrior contains too many hot and beautiful nephilim warriors, steamy sex scenes, nice fight moves, monsters, werewolves, vampires and other creatures of the night that is better not to know them and left me with the strange urge to drink that ‘magical’ tasty water. The second book in the series is Destiny Of The Female Warrior and I cannot wait to find out what will happen next! Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
