Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1) by Rebecca Roanhorse
Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World) - Rebecca Roanhorse
 
“But I had forgotten that the Diné had already suffered their apocalypse over a century before. This wasn’t our end. This was our rebirth.”
 
*** ABOUT THE BOOK ***

 

Title: Trail of Lightning (The Sixth World #1)

Author: Rebecca Roanhorse

Genre: Urban Fantasy | Dystopia

 

Goodreads Amazon

 

 

 

 *** BOOK BLURB ***

 

While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, Dinétah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.

Maggie Hoskie is a Dinétah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their last—and best—hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much larger and more terrifying than anything she could imagine.

Maggie reluctantly enlists the aid of Kai Arviso, an unconventional medicine man, and together they travel to the rez to unravel clues from ancient legends, trade favors with tricksters, and battle dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.

As Maggie discovers the truth behind the disappearances, she will have to confront her past—if she wants to survive.

 

*** REVIEW ***

 

This is a enjoyable and fast paced book. But because I have no knowledge about Navajo mythology and terminology, all the terms thrown at me where very distracting and confusing. Most of them wasn't explained in any way and left me frustrated.

 

Character, plot and world-building are all well-thought out and brought vibrantly to life. Maggie Hoskie is a real kick ass but flawed heroine and reminded me a lot of Kate Daniels (from Ilona Andrews books).

 

Overall I really liked it, especially because it was something different from all other Urban Fantasy books I read before. But before picking up second part I will have to do extensive research about Navajo.

Release Day Review! Darkest Heart (Dominion #1) Juliette Cross!
Darkest Heart - Juliette Cross

 

 

Wrong side of heaven...right side of redemption.

 

Anya—a stoic, blue-winged angelic warrior— was bitten by a demon prince in battle, and now she has precious little time to find a cure for his deadly venom. But the only archangel with the power to stop the dark poison from corrupting her body and soul is missing. She’ll have to trust her guide, the outcast high demon Dommiel, who is as handsome as he is dangerous if she has any hope.

 

An outcast of his own kind, high demon Dommiel stays under cover while the war between angels and demons rages on. But when the only person who ever showed him kindness asks for his help, he has no choice but to try to save the angel. Venturing back into the dens he has avoided for so long, Anya makes him want and feel things he never thought possible.

 

But Dommiel knows there is no way an angel can ever love a demon…

 

 

This forbidden love story is a fascinating and thrilling apocalyptic read that involves the war between heaven and hell and everything in between. Anya and Dommiel are two strong, entrancing characters that easily draw readers into their intriguing story, especially since love between an angel and a demon is a very unlikely relationship. The romance part of this story is sweet, yet rousing as it is full of steamy, zinging chemistry and fiery passion while the relationship has not only that major obstacle to be overcome but quite a few others and since both characters aren’t even remotely thinking of a relationship, but the chemistry keeps pulling drawing them together, letting the feelings sneak up on them.

 

The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout the book, keeping readers glued to the pages with lots of excitement and danger as they face dangerous adversaries throughout their treacherous quest to find and free the archangel that can stop the ark poison that is corrupting Anya’s body and soul. There is lots of exhilarating battles and surprising twists that keeps readers glued to the pages and the author brings it all too vivid life so the readers can easily picture each and every scene as it happens.

 

Dominion is an apocalyptic world where heaven and hell are at war and the angels and demons fight among the humans and together with the fascinating characters gives readers an exciting experience as they become caught up in the story. I was completely caught up in Darkest Heart from the very beginning and found the world very intriguing with some fascinating unique elements to add that something extra to the story as well as the characters. I was especially fascinated by Dommiel as he is dangerous and sexy with some unique attributes, so I am looking forward to future books in this series.

Book Review of Sentinel (Book One of the Sentinel Trilogy) by Joshua Winning
Sentinel - Joshua Winning

This is a fantastic start to what looks like an exciting trilogy! I loved it!

Nicholas Hallow is a fantastic character. I liked him very much; and felt extremely sorry for him, as he dealt with a tragedy that destroyed his world. When he is sent to live with his godmother, Nicholas has no idea what mystery and danger awaits him.

This is an exciting, danger-filled YA Fantasy novel set it Cambridge, England. I found myself completely hooked from the first page! The characters come alive as the tale unfolds. Samuel Wilkins is Nicholas's parents friend. I liked his spirit! At 71 years old, he's still got a lot of it! Nicholas's godmother seemed a bit flighty to me, but when I read the full story of how she became that way, I could understand why. She's a powerful witch, but emotionally damaged by an event in her past. Isabel is a unique character, and her snarky and sarcastic comments had me giggling! I liked her very much! It's amazing what havoc a misfired spell can do to your perspective! However, there is one character that sent chills down my back, and her name is Malika. She is a creepy and dangerous individual! Well, I suppose you would have to be, working for a demon!


I struggled to put this book down, and couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to! There are several twists and turns in this book that I didn't see coming, but they just added to a totally enthralling read! By the end of the book I still had some questions that needed to be answered, such as: Why were the Sentinels created/formed? Who or what is Esus? And, what will happen next? I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy as soon as I can!

Joshua Winning has written a debut novel that had me sitting on the edge of my seat! I loved his fast paced writing style, which made the story flow beautifully. This author is one to watch. If he's not careful, he'll be on my favourite authors list in no time at all! 

As this book is a Young Adult fantasy, I highly recommend this book to young readers aged 12+, and adults who love YA stories filled with witches, demons, supernatural beings, danger and adventure! - Lynn Worton

Review: Demon hunting teenagers, what could go wrong?
When Life Gives You Demons - Jennifer Honeybourn
Teenagers and exorcism, what could possibly go wrong? As if young Shelby doesn't have enough going on in her senior year of high school she is also learning to be an exorcist from  her uncle who is a priest. Learning Latin for fun sounds awesome /sarcasm.
 
As with most first jobs, Shelby is struggling with the responsibilities placed before her, especially when it requires her to miss her study sessions with her crush Spencer. Soon enough they will find out they have a lot more in common than they think, and Shelby will uncover a secret that makes her take her exorcism training much more seriously. 
 
While the story starts out light and full of teenage sarcasm, it quickly becomes an interesting exploration of demons and the power of exorcism/faith. Family ties and loyalty are an underlying theme woven into several relationships in the story. Shelby's quest to find her mother and her lackadaisical attitude towards her uncle are important throughout her journey into demon hunting.  
 
 I enjoyed every aspect of this gem of a story and would recommend this to readers who enjoy quirky young adult books.

Review! The Vampire's Reckoning (Dark Enchantments) Cynthia Cooke!
The Vampire's Reckoning - Cynthia Cooke

 

 

Emma McGovern has lived her life in fear. A centuries old curse has plagued her family for generations. If she finds love, and consummates that love, Asmos a demon from the 7th realm, will claim her as his own. To remind her of his power, Asmos sends demon wolves for her each year on the night of the equinox. This year is no different, except the Cadre has sent an agent to help her. But he might just be her undoing.


Damien has one job--capture and contain the demon Asmos. He knows how powerful Asmos is, but what he didn’t bargain for is the affect Emma would have on him. He cannot fall in love with her. He knows the risk, and yet, they can’t stop the pull they feel toward one another. Not even when Emma learns he’s a vampire, and might just be as big a danger to her as the wolves waiting at her door. Will the love they have find be strong enough to fight a demon, or will it cost them both their lives?

 

 

Having lived in her life in fear, Emma McGovern is reminded once again that Asmos, a demon from the seventh realm will claim has his own when Asmos sends demon wolves to stalk her but this time the Cadre has sent Damien. Damien has every intention of capturing and containing the demon Asmos but he didn’t bargain for the effect that Emma has on him. Will their love help them fight the demon or will it cost them both of their lives?

 

This romance is not your typical boy meets girl and they live happily ever after and it keeps the readers in doubt about the outcome until the very end. The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers into their story from the very beginning as surely as their hearts are captured by Emma and her situation. The romance has sparks flying but this romance has a major obstacle – if they give into their desires, a demon will claim Emma.

 

This story has a fast pace and smooth flowing plot that keeps readers glued to the pages in anticipation and adrenaline pumping suspense with a few surprises along the way. The story also has an overall gothic, shivery chill feel to the story that has goose bumps prickling and the hairs on the back of the neck rising.

 

The Vampire’s Reckoning and its characters are well-developed story and the author did a great job of adding such a mysterious atmosphere to the story that I felt like I right there with the characters as they fight for their lives.
