Night Shift by Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Lisa Shearin, Milla Vane
Night Shift - Nalini Singh,Lisa Shearin,Ilona Andrews,Milla Vane

The Secrets of Midnight by Nalini Singh

Such a cute and wonderful story. It's predictable, but so fun to read. 4.5 stars

Magic Steals by Ilona Andrews
Fantastic world, great storyline, and awesome characters. I fell in love with Jim and really appreciated that Dali wasn't "a gorgeous kick-ass heroine with amazing rack". Such a nice change. More than 5 stars

Lucky Charms by Lisa Shearin
Interesting world. There were too many characters and they weren't as solid as in the first two stories. But Mac's work sounded interesting and for the prequel novella, it was good enough to make me interested in reading the first book of the series. 4 stars

The Beast of Blackmoor by Milla Vane
Big disappointment. The story wasn't urban fantasy or paranormal romance. It was erotica and I didn't like the style or the setting. The characters were okay, but there was too much sex in it and the way these scenes were written was just creepy. 2 stars

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I liked this so much more on Audio…with it, the slow sections are so much easier to get through.  I've previously read this series in eBook format, and I've struggled through the first two books. But now that I've found the audio version on Scribd...this has become a much more enjoyable read/listen.  Once you get to the meat of the story, it really is quite awesome…even for paranormal (just to clarify, I haven't been feeling the paranormal stories lately).  The dark, historic London paired with Kristen Callihan's superb writing makes the paranormal aspects, and let's not forget the sizzling sex scenes either, come to life.

Release Day Review! Stone Heart (The Gargoyle Protectors #1) Ariel Marie!

 

 

An unknown entity, an unexplained power source... Earth was in danger.

 

Gargoyles, a winged humanoid race of warriors, had spent thousands of years ensuring the survival of the planet. Rhodack Gahnoth, leader of Clan Gahnoth, demanded his gargoyles defend the realm against a new threat. Sending his most trusted warrior to investigate the unexplainable, he was left speechless when the warrior returned with a little wisp of a female with golden hair by the name of Rina Smith.

 

Her powers were the strongest of any being, and something was hunting her down. To make matters worse, she was under a powerful spell, believed herself to be human, and she was Rhodack’s mate.

 

Once the spell was removed, Rina’s true identity was revealed, and no one was more shocked than her. She would need a crash course in the world of paranormal to bring her up to speed. One thing she didn’t need help with was her attraction to the tall, brooding gargoyle. He didn’t hide the fact he wanted her. Her hesitance was met with his persistence.

 

What Rhodack wanted, he claimed.

 

Because of who she was, a war that had no place on Earth would spill into the realm. It would be up to Rhodack and his gargoyles to meet this new enemy head-on. Rhodack vowed to protect Rina, but as fate would have it, she wouldn’t need his protection after all—he would need hers.

 

 

This new series sizzles with electricity, red hot loving and thrilling excitement. Rina and Rhodack are strong, vibrant characters with take charge attitudes that grab readers by their eyeballs and demands that reader enjoy their story. The attraction between these two is undeniable but there are a few obstacles in the path of the mating, Rina has no clue about the supernatural world or just who she really is and Rhodack being the head of his clan of Gargoyles has a harem. That may seem like major obstacles but fate has a way of getting around hurdles and which leads to some seriously hot and passionate scenes between Rhodack and Rina and some of those scenes includes much more, but I will leave that up to your imagination or if you really want to know read the book.

 

Excitement and suspense has readers holding their breaths in anticipation as secrets are revealed, unknown entities breach the portals, and a war that has no place on Earth plunges the Gargoyles right into danger as they try to protect the inhabitants of Earth. With some surprising twists, there’s no way for readers to become bored. The author has created a well-developed world with some unique elements that makes this story one that I couldn’t put down and I am really looking forward to reading the next about the next sexy gargoyle protector.

Wow, 14 books this month! That's a lot for me. Admittedly I was going for the shorter ones to get through as many as possible. I do have some reading done on longer ones too, so we'll just see how things go in the coming month.

 

Stand outs this month are The Last Werewolf, White Lies and Pieces of Her. These were all really good. I got various levels of enjoyment from most of them, only one got below 3 stars from me.

 

Bingo reads continue! But I also have 4 Netgalley books that aren't for Bingo squares so will need to at least make a start on those. Not much sample reading during Bingo. I'll have to devote some time to that in November.

The Angel Gift (Dark World: The Angel Trials Book 4) by Michelle Madow
The Angel Gift (Dark World: The Angel Trials Book 4)
Synopsis
Everyone is separated, and no one is safe.

Raven Danvers didn’t think her life could get any crazier since the night a demon attacked her in an alley and abducted her mom. 

She was wrong. 

Because now that same demon has abducted her too. He’s thrown her into a secret bunker with a group of humans who have unique abilities that make them “gifted.” They don’t know what the demons want with them, and the bunker is impossible to escape. 

Her only hope is Noah—the wolf shifter she’s imprinted upon. She just needs to let him know where she is. But she can’t do it alone. Her only way to get a message to him is to team up with the other humans by making use of their unique gifts.

But they have to do it fast. Because their time in the bunker is temporary. The demons are prepping them to go somewhere else… somewhere far worse than where they are now. 

They don’t know what this place is. 

They just know they really, really don’t want to find out.

Get ready for a magical, twist-filled ride in the fourth installment of The Angel Trials series, a fast-paced urban fantasy adventure that will leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more!
Review

Raven and Noah's story continues in the fourth book. This series is turning out to be even better than I expected. I love Raven's character so much. She seems like a normal human girl but the demons think she is gifted and that keeps putting her in harm's way. She is kidnapped by demons, along with Sage. Now she must find a way out of her prison. She is sure that Noah will be looking for her so it won't be long before she is free and once again on the quest to find her mother.

Noah and Thomas are trying their best to find the girls. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as they thought. Sage is apparently beyond rescue and they still have no idea where Raven is... until they get help from a very unlikely source... now all they need to do is, kill some demons and find a way to stay alive.

It's an action-packed, fast-paced paranormal fantasy novel, which I enjoyed reading very much. It's part of a series and cannot be read as standalone. So far I've loved all the books in this series and can't wait to read more about the adventure of my favorite characters.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
