Storm and Fury is Amazing!
Storm and Fury (The Harbinger #1) - Jennifer L. Armentrout

STORM AND FURY WRITTEN BY JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT

Narrated by Lauren Fortgang♥♥♥
FormatAudiobook 14 hours
Publisher: HarperAudio

 

A paranormal fantasy with a touch of romance is exactly the kind of matter Storm and Fury is made of. The way that Gargoyles are presented is nothing short of amazing. They are called Wardens and they serve a purpose: to protect humankind from demons and guard and protect Trinity Marrow. Trin, as she is called, is special and she might be a bit of a spoiled brat for being treated differently than any other human but there is a reason for it. She is a Trueborn which means she’s a Nephilim. She is half-human and half-angel. Her father is a very big and important archangel and her mother was human and they …. well… had sex.

I loved Trinity’s friends but some of them weren’t as well fleshed out as others. Like I hated Misha, Trinity’s so-called protector which we learn had been a mistake. Zayne and Peanut are my favourites. Peanut is a ghost! He is very funny who has a habit of not knocking lol

Demons run amok in Washington D.C and something is killing Wardens. However, what if we were wrong about demons? Is it possible we are mistaken about them? I for one wish it were the case because I happen to like Roth the Crown Prince of Hell! This demon knows love, and how is that possible? He is a fabulous character and I hope to see him again. Anyway, Bael is evil and remains elusive. If I remember correctly, Bael is the reason that Zayne and Trinity travel to Washington D.C. It kidnapped Misha, and Trinity is intent on finding him. Did I mention she knows how to fight and is a kickass warrior? She is. There are also witches and a Harbinger dun dun dun dun. Bring it on!

All in all, it was a fantastic read if you like that sorta thing. I enjoyed her Covenant series and Titan spin-off. Storm and Fury stoked the fire once again. Loved it!

The Diviners by Libba Bray
The Diviners - Libba Bray

The Diviners by Libba Bray

The Diviners was well written and I appreciated the aesthetic of the roaring '20s. On the other hand, damn anyone for taking bible verses out of context!! UGH! It makes me want to gag! I mean the world is full of crazies just like the Brethren in the Pillar of Fire Church.

A sinister entity was let loose via a group of unsuspecting and drunk partygoers playing with an ouija board. I was blown away with the semblance that something dark and terrible now resides in a cellar of a dilapidated house!! Admittedly I was terrified mmk?
I don’t like Ouija boards because I BELIEVE what the Catholic Church says about it. Nuff said.

We follow the protagonist Evie O’Neill - a 17-year-old who is sent away to New York City to live with her Uncle who is a professor in the Museum of Creepy Crawlies BECAUSE she gets in trouble for indiscriminately using her gifts. Evie could tell things about a person simply by touching an object belonging to them. She is a diviner. Many call themselves diviners who have different abilities. Her powers can get her into trouble because it is equivalent to stealing; stealing people's secrets.

The 1920s were a time of dance marathons and the charleston and Ziegfeld girls, flapper dresses and ‘bobbed’ hairstyles. When Evie arrives in New York Penn station she meets Sam Lloyd, a pickpocket, thief and diviner who can slip away without being seen whenever he wishes. He ends up stealing 20 dollars from her and she swears vengeance if she ever saw him again. Their relationship is heavily flirtatious. She is excited to see her friend Mabel who is very smart and lives with her parents in the same fancy hotel as her Uncle. It is here they meet Theta Knight a Ziegfeld girl, also a diviner.

When Evie has earned her uncle's trust, she subsequently becomes more of an asset to the museum of creepy crawlies and in the murder investigations that are occurring around the city. She is finally allowed to use her ability to catch a serial killer, and she reminds me a bit of Buffy the vampire slayer. Naughty John Hobbes is the killer who happens to be an old dead person who is vying for the position of antichrist! The police require the expertise of Will Fitzgerald because of the nature of the crimes. The victims are seen having weird symbols carved into their flesh and uncle Will is an expert in weird occult symbols and objects.
I didn’t realize it was going to be so scary and I can't wait to find out more in Lair of Dreams.

Book Review: A Cousins Promise (Read in 2011)
A Cousin's Promise - Wanda E. Brunstetter

A Cousin Promise is done well. I know I read this way before starting my book blog. I really did enjoy this. This book is about Loraine and Wayne. Will Loraine keep her promise? Though Wayne seem to have had accident and was left crippled.

Will Wayne see is way and hold on to his happiness? I really can not remember much it been that long ago. If I ever do re-read this book again I truly hope it as good as the first I read it. I do not see why it would not be.

I remember some of it story and plot. I know that it was written well. I did enjoy the story none the less. Will Wayne be able to get over his struggles and look to god and faith. Will Loraine be able to get over her rejection with gods help? What will happen once Loraine old boyfriends returns? Who will Loraine choose to love and marry?

Will Faith decide to stay or will she leave once again. Noah seem like he likes Faith and her daughter. The author does well with this story. It show that it okay to return back home. Will Faith and Noah find love with each other? It seem that Wanda does this. I remember bit and parts about this story when I read it about seven years ago. I would love to reread it in audio book if I ever get the chance.

This book is worth reading. If you are a fan of christian fiction or even Amish fiction. Wanda is a really good storyteller and this story is no different.

[REVIEW] Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein

“It's like being in love, discovering your best friend.”

I cried. I'm still crying. This book is so well written but it is heartbreaking. Don't know how or when I will recover.
