  • The Dark Gifts Birthright on Sep. 04, 2011

    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)
  • Vultar's Heart, Body and Soul Mate Part 1 on Sep. 27, 2011

    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)
  • Vultar's Heart, Body and Soul Mate Part 2 on Oct. 11, 2011

    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!
  • Vultar's Heart, Body and Soul Mate Part 3 on Oct. 11, 2011

    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!
