Fabulous Finale – Black Orchid by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks
Black Orchid - Abigail Owen

 

I have been reading Abigail Owen’s Svatura series, and have reached the end of the road with Black Orchid, Book IV. What a wonderful journey it has been.

MY REVIEW

 

Oh no. I have reached the end of the Svatura series with Black Orchid, Book IV, by Abigail Owen. What a fabulous road we have traveled and I can hardly wait to read more of work.

 

Black Orchid picks up where Crimson Dahlia left off, so you will want to read these in order.

 

Adelaide Jenner has lost her love, her te’sorthene, which can drive her mad, and she has become a danger to them all.

 

Nate, poor Nate, her lost love. He doesn’t even know how messed up his life is, though flashes blink in and out at times.

 

Can they find their way back to each other? They both deal with confusion, but Nate’s is filled with hate and rage, while Adelaide’s has become filled with trust and caring.

 

Maddox is still determined to kill all the women, Adelaide, Ellie, Selena and Lila, and he plans to use Nate to do it. These women are strong and determined, and as dragons have tremendous power. But will it be enough?

 

There are intense personal conflicts with many of the characters, and their powers. They work together as a family for support and to heal, while trying to figure out how to mend their broken hearts and minds.

 

Black Orchid by Abigail Owen is character driven and not all of them will make it out alive. The losses will be heart wrenching.

 

Abigail Owen has created an amazing magical world. Scenes played out in my mind, like a movie playing out on screen. The final battle will be fought and even if the story is sometimes predictable, it is an unforgettable and wild ride.

 

When Adelaide describes the bonds of connections and how she heals them, it made me think of Avatar. Now, that is being in very good company.

 

I wondered if the finale would wrap it up in a way that would make me happy and satisfied, but, no worries. She more than met my expectations, she surpassed them. The action and fight scenes are described in vivid detail, playing out like a film unreeling in my mind. I, especially, loved the dragon fight finale with Maddox. 

 

At the end of the book, Abigail Owen has explanations for the key concepts, characters and their powers.

MY REVIEW

 

The battle continues from Hyacinth into Crimson Dahlia, Book III of the Svatura Series by Abigail Owen. This is Lila and Ramsey’s story, and I am eager to hear it.

 

Lila is locked up, half dressed, being kept in a cold dark pit, yet her snark shines through her chattering teeth. Now that is some great writing, Abigail. Lila’s personality is big and bold and I love it.

 

How long can she survive? Why is she not able to use her magic to escape…or at least send a telepathic message for help.

 

Ramsey is a firestarter and he has a special connection to her. He will stop at nothing to find her. She just has to hang on until he can get there.

 

The characters are not immortal, but can live for thousands of years. The one hundred year old kids go to school, playing at normal. I wonder…do they ever get bored?

 

All hell breaks loose…people are going missing and cannot be found. They know who is at fault, they just don’t know why. And can they destroy him, before he destroys them?

 

If sheer stubbornness were a successful strategy, no one would ever mess with this family. Especially the women.

 

I loved the battles, filled with magics of every type you can imagine. I can hardly wait to see the conclusion.

Danger Surrounds Her – Hyacinth by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks
Hyacinth - Abigail Owen

 

 

Abigail Owen has some fantastic stories and I am happy to be able to share Book 2 of the Savutra Series, Hyacinth.

 

The covers of the series are done by Debbie Taylor. Fabulous job, Debbie.

MY REVIEW

 

I love Abigail Owens novels. We have strong female characters with, powers and abilities that I wish I possessed. Danger and intrigue are around every corner and I aim to find the villain…with a little help from my Svatura friends.

 

Selene is Vyusher, a beautiful and deadly white wolf. She has no desire to hurt anyone, but her nightmares tell a different story. She can visit others in their dreams whenever she wants, but this is not her dream. She does not want to be here. Who…or what is doing this?

 

Only one person knew of her ability, and she could never have him. Her situation is unsettling and she felt keeping distance from the pack was best for them all….for now. So, it’s off to college in Colorado. She’s never made her own decisions before and she’s looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time.

 

Griffin and his family live in Colorado and he dreamed of her long before he sees her. They have a history and it isn’t a good one. Can they get past it for the battle to come? We shall see…won’t we. 

 

Ts’sorthene – fated souls bonded by heart and spirit

 

Selene and her brother, Gideon, are twins of parents with multiple powers, as is Griffin. After all Selena has been through, how can she be such a sweet person? But, make no mistake, she can be deadly.

 

Music soothes the savage beast and I love when Griffin does a little dirty dancing, Patrick Swayze style, with his baby.

 

There is a conspiracy among the Vyusher and Selena’s life is in danger. Will her new family stand by her?

 

I love the moments of levity with Nate that had me grinning ear to ear. He has a sense of humor that shines through, even in the most dire of circumstances. I hope he has his own story because I sure want to know more about him.

 

As one battle is fought, another rises on the horizon and I am eager to read on to see who’s story will be told. The more I hang with the characters, the more I get to know and love them, their powers and abilities, the more I want of them. I love strong females, and we have our share in the Svatura Series.

Is There A New Killer In Town – Sunset Darkening b Amanda Siegrist @amanda_siegrist
Blue Violet - Abigail Owen

I have another fantastic story to share from Amanda Siegrist, Sunset Darkening.

 

Has the serial killer returned or is there a new murderer in town?

 

Sunset Darkening

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

I love visiting familiar characters and seeing what trouble they can get into now. Amanda Siegrist does not let me down in Sunset Darkening.

 

Lucas works for the Wadena Police Department. He is awakened by a pounding on his door. He is hyper vigilant and answers with a weapon in his hand, only to find…a vulture, Elle Conners. She is an investigative reporter, wanting answers about the Trick Killer, Clarence Owens. The case: Clarence killed three women and Lucas’ sister, Maddie, was almost the fourth. You can see more about Clarence in the first book, Sunrise Awakening.

 

As soon as Lucas laid eyes on Elle, he felt an immediate attraction. But cops and reporters don’t go well together and they come from different worlds. She’s a big city girl with lots of money and he’s a small town cop with small town pay.

 

Does she share the same attraction? She has her own story and even though she wants his, she will not use sex to get the interview. It’s not her style. Hard work, persistence and determination is her motto. Lucas doesn’t know it, but she respects his desire to protect his family, his town.

 

Another murder in Wadena…is Clarence back, or is there a new killer walking among them?

 

It has been three months since Clarence’s escape. He is super intelligent, vanishes into disguises where he looks, acts, and sounds like a different person and they will not see him coming. Lucas is obsessed and hopes it is him. He wants him…and I don’t think he cares if its dead or alive.

 

I love the characters and the story. They are not wusses and stick together.

 

When Elle and Maddie take on a mission of their own…Psycho beware. You cannot hide.

 

Amanda Siegrist is making me wonder how many women will go down, before I have my answer. How does he choose his victims? I have my suspect early on and I’ll be curious to see if I’m right. There’s a niggle of doubt and as I read along.

 

A good bit of misdirection and great suspense coming from it. Amanda Siegrist can sure ramp up the suspense, anticipation, and surprise, leaving me with a fantastic ending and happy ever after.

 

I can’t pinpoint why this doesn’t blow my socks off. I want to be drawn into the killers evil mind, used, abused and beyond disgust, because he is THAT guy. I want to feel their pain, their fears, Lucas’ desire and Elle’s too. Amanda does that, but…Maybe it’s just an off day for me. Why don’t you grab a copy and let me know what you think.

Unputdownable Conclusion of the Shadowcat Nation – Seneca’s Faith by Abigail Owen @AOwenBooks
Seneca's Faith (Shadowcat Nation Book 4) - Abigail Owen

I love the Shadowcat Nation Series and am very happy to be learning about Seneca in Seneca’s Faith by Abigail Owen.

 

Check out this gorgeous cover!

 

Cover: Debbie Taylor

 

Publisher:  The Wild Rose Press

 

Seneca's Faith (Shadowcat Nation #4)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The Shadowcat Nation saga continues in Seneca’s Faith, Book IV by Abigail Owen. The books can stand alone, but I have loved learning about every character and their lives, so I highly recommend reading from the beginning, Andromeda’s Fall, Book I.

 

The journey for this series has been one of wonder, and I will hate to see it end.

 

I was immediately engrossed in the supernatural world of Seneca’s Faith and it never let me go. I did not realize this would also be Gage’s story, but after Tieryn’s Fury, Book III, I really wanted to know more about him.

 

Seneca had portrayed an image…poor little powerless female. Now, after being kidnapped, she was throwing it out the window, showing her true colors. Gage, who was taken too, is in for a big surprise.

 

When I found out her secret…LOVED IT!

 

Seneca has a winning way and a bewitching smile, an air of innocence, naivety and friendliness that could win over even the most ornery lion shifter. I love the way Seneca teases Gage, driving him a little crazy. Men are so easy when it comes to sex.

 

The ongoing war began with Seneca’s father and  is coming to a head. Revenge is a huge motivator and he is determined to have it…and more. In the conclusion of the Shadowcat Nation, Seneca’s Faith, Book IV the final battle is fought . Who will be left standing?

 

As bonds are formed and sides are chosen, unlikely allies unite…cougars, lions and mountain lions, wolves, tigers, grizzlies and polar bears…sister against sister…daughter against father…

 

This fabulous fantasy with its excellent writing has given me hours of unputdownable reading and I am sorry to see my journey end. But when one journey ends, another begins.
