Fun paranormal romance
Fox's Awakening (Enchanted Immortals Book 2) - F.G. Adams,Julia Goda

Fox's Awakening is the second book in the Enchanted Immortals Trilogy and picks up where book one, Aldin's Wish left off. While I would recommend reading the books in order to get the full impact of everything going on with these characters, it can be read as a standalone. 

Fox wasn't a major character in the first book, but he did make an impact and I was excited to see his story. The book is fast-paced with lots of action and plenty of steam as Fox and his goddesses get acquainted - umm, reacquainted? (Too much on that would give spoilers, so I'll just leave it alone.)

Adams is a talented writer and weaves an exciting tale with this second book in the trilogy. The story is told in multiple points of view and will keep you on your toes as things progress with Baako and a romance blooms.

All in all, this second book is a fun paranormal romance with lots of action to keep a reader turning pages.

Good World Building
Aldin's Wish (Enchanted Immortals) (Volume 1) - F. G. Adams,Daryl Banner

Aldin's Wish is a fast-paced paranormal romance with the Immortals being the guardians of the human race. Well, most of them. There's always a baddie in the bunch. Aldin is such an endearing character, watching over his family in secret and helping out when needed. Of course, his world is turned upside down when he sees Wren. What follows is a steamy love story and plenty of action with our bad guy creating chaos.

There were a few repetitive phrases that should've been caught by a proof-reader, but that aside, it was still an exciting read and an engaging romance. It is the first book in the Enchanted Immortals Trilogy and while the ending is a little open-ended, there are no earth shattering cliffys, so it could be read as a standalone. Overall, Aldin's Wish is a solid start to the series, introducing a world of God's, Vampires, and Shifters.

Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark) - Kresley Cole

Oh my goodness, this one was so good. It was so hard to put it down. I loved the characters; Rune was such a strong male lead with such a dynamic personality and history, and Jo had so much spunk, attitude, and fire on the page. The plot was very strong and carried the reader through it all from beginning to end. The conflict wasn't some malevolent bad guy but rather how Rune's past colored his present and Jo's desire for companionship even in the face of a man who, on more than one occasion, told her he wouldn't be faithful. Her drive to protect her brother and then reunite with him also added a depth to her character that pulled the reader in. I loved how strong her personality was on the page and when the inevitable happened and she left Rune it was so heart wrenching. I really did worry that Rune wasn't going to see the error of his ways before it was way too late to salvage his relationship with his mate. There isn't anything I didn't like about this story. Loved it!

The Immortals by Jordanna Max Brodsky - My Thoughts
The Immortals - Jordanna Max Brodsky

A paranormal mystery/thriller with a dollop of romance, The Immortals was a fun read and a good introduction to the series, I think.  Since I was a little girl, elementary school little, I've been fascinated with Greek mythology, so this author and her books were a cool find for me. 

So...

We follow the heroine, Selene DaSilva who is, in fact, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, forests, hills, the moon, archery and a ton of other things.  It's modern day and the gods of Greek mythology have gone through The Diaspora and are now living as part of human society.  Artemis, in her latest guise as Selene, with her faithful hound Hippolyta at her side, is a protector of women, sort of a hit person for abused women. 

There's a particularly gruesome murder that Selene stumbles across to start the excitement and that brings her to meet Theo, the professor of mythology who is particularly knowledgeable about his chosen subject.

I enjoyed the book.  I enjoyed the chase and how Selene came to understand a lot of things about herself and her family.  I really liked how Theo grew into the hero of the story and I especially liked hi sense of humour and wry observations.  I liked the members of Selene's 'family' that we got to meet - well, most of them.  And I liked their present-day premise.  I loved Hippo, Selene's wonderful hound (I pictured a huge Irish Wolfhound in my reader's eye) and I loved Theo's friend Gabriella. 

Were there things that I could have liked more?  Maybe.  I'm not a huge paranormal fan though, so the fact that I'm pleased I got Book 2 on sale a couple of weeks ago is HUGE!  *LOL*  I think The Immortals is a good summer read.  :)

Stolen Magic (Shadows of the Immortals) (Volume 1) - Marina Finlayson

I had high hopes and they were quickly thrashed.

 

Insta-attraction to the hot and mighty fire shaper. 

 

And a pretty stupid heroine who is afraid of "Shapers" because of prior bad experiences, but still decides to live in a shaper town instead of in a country where there are no shapers...and then decides to piss off a shaper in the beginning of the story, just "to stick it to him" - which doesn't make anything better for the people for whom she takes "revenge".

Stupid and unnecessary.
