  • The Dark Gifts Birthright on Sep. 04, 2011
    star star star star star
    Birthright is the first book in the series named, “The Dark Gifts” by Willow Cross. Upon finishing, I am eagerly awaiting, (not so patiently!) the next instalment! This E-Book is not your typical, vampire romance book, where there is brooding, lust and danger. It is considerably more! I found myself having to turn the ‘pages’ every few seconds as I was just so engrossed in the story. It captivated me, had its hold on me so tightly, that I was forced into continue reading until the final page. The characters are so complex and so intricately thought out with striking, individual personalities that consequently lead you to falling in love with them. For example, you see Cass, one of the most powerful of the Witches face tremendous difficulties. You witness a side to her that you ultimately would not expect, as she is a character who you expect to keep composure. The love observed between Liz and Michael is one of a kind, extraordinary, brimming with passion. They have an understanding that many would crave. Willow has created a mystical world that you are catapulted into from the very first page. Infused into the book, has everything and anything any lover of the paranormal could ever want from a book. There are witches, vampires, ghosts, permeated with mythology and history. The story flows beautifully from the first page to the final concluding page, at the end leaving you feeling like you have lost a part of you. You feel as though you were part of the story, an observer, and it leaves you aching with neediness for the next book. There are countless twists and turns in the storyline that leave you gasping for more, forcing you to read on to find out what happens next! The way that Willow describes and her spectacular way with the words she uses, leaves you craving for more. I would without a doubt give this book a 5/5 stars and I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a must to be read. You must read it! Thank you Willow, for this amazing book!!! ~Katie (‘Beneath the Cover’ Facebook page)
  • Oceans of Red Volume One on Sep. 26, 2011
    star star star star star
    Oceans of Red is the first volume by Willow Cross. As I finished this amazing book, I found myself eagerly and impatiently anticipating the release of Volume Two! Oceans of Red is based around the December 2012 prophecy; the prophecy declaring the end of the world as we know it. Demons are running the show, inhabiting humans and ultimately, it is the story’s main character’s jobs to stop this from happening. This book left me yearning for more, to know what happens! I was left at a cliff-hanger at the final page! The characters, Remy, Greg and Shane, have been intricately created, with each having definable, individual characteristics. For example, there is Remy, the leading heroine. Her strength, sarcasm, and smartness makes her individual, while simultaneously caring and compassionate, makes her a character that everyone would just simply adore and admire. These three figures in the book make it an attention-grabbing read, from start to finish, while also playing a vital role in the telling of the story! Willow has shaped and brought into existence, this magical and mystical world, crammed demons and power. Instilled in this book, is everything a paranormal addict like me could want! With demons embodied in humans to magic and ancient Druids, this volume is a definite read. The story flowed beautifully, from start to finish, and I never found it at all difficult to continue reading! Willow has a natural remarkable way with the words she uses, thus creating a world of mystery and fantasy, brimming with pleasure and enjoyment. This undoubtedly leaves you longing for more, the desire to read the following volume. I would without ANY hesitation give this book a massive 5/5 stars! I would also without a doubt recommend it to every single person out there. It a definite must read!! Praise for Willow! Thank you Willow, for crafting these incredible worlds that we, the reader, can enjoy and adore for hours on end! I ultimately found it very hard to write this review, as I continually found myself typing what happens, only to find myself hitting that delete button way too many times. I don’t want to give any of this remarkable tale away, but what I will say, is that you need to get it now, and read, read and read! ~Katie :) (‘Beneath the Cover’ Facebook Page)
  • Vultar's Heart, Body and Soul Mate Part 1 on Sep. 27, 2011
    star star star star star
    Vultar’s Heart, Body and Soul Mate part 1, is the first segment. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it was funny, romantic and exciting. Upon finishing this, I wanted to know what happens next! The only thing, was that the book needs to be longer, but in this short part, quite a lot actually happens…A young girl goes down to the basement, and is kidnapped from her home, to wake up shrouded in darkness, surrounded by an unfamiliar kind. Trapped in the basement, these strangers do not allow any harm to come upon her. Vultar captures her heart, revealing that they are soul-mates and that he will never let anything ever hurt her. The book is brimming with excitement and a sweet one of a kind love that captures our hearts. This is a brilliant read, by an amazing author, and it had me in stitches countless times. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone. It is different, but an amazing type of different. I’d give it a 5/5 stars, even though there were a few spelling mistakes, I do not feel that they detracted at all from the amazing storyline. I can’t wait for the next instalment! ~Katie (Beneath the Cover Facebook Page)

    This is the second part of the Vultar’s Heart, Body and Soul Mate by Beth Wright! I was eagerly anticipating this to be published as I was left a one serious cliff hanger at the end of part one. I loved all of the characters in this book, mainly Setiana, as I absolutely love her personality. She makes me laugh with many of the things she does. This is truly one unique and original story. And one that I love until the last page of this part! The storyline was fantastic as always and I found myself at the end very soon. This part ended on yet another amazing cliff hanger, and I was enthusiastically waiting for the next instalment! Thank you for this awesome read, Beth! You’re an amazing writer!

    star star star star star
    This is the third part of the Vultar’s Heart, Body and Soul Mate by Beth Wright! I was eagerly waiting for this next part of the story to be published as the last left my on yet another cliff hanger! All of the characters are amazingly thought out, and they all have likeable qualities that make them unique and original. Setiana still didn’t fail to make me laugh countless times throughout the story! The story flows very well and I soon found myself at the final page. The biggest surprise was how many children she actually ended up having! You see Setiana go through troubled times after, the baby blues, and you see how she copes with things now. You witness her inner strength as she battles through. I loved this storyline loads, and this one left on a large cliff-hanger! It was once again fantastic and I loved it throughout. I waited keenly for the next part! Thank you for this amazing read, Beth! You’re a fabulous writer!
