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.

By Ednah Walters Immortals (Book two) (Runes) (1st First Edition) [Paperback] - Ednah Walters

Raines best friend was Cora. It was usually Raines webcam Cora used for her blog and “ Hottie Of The Week” . Cora felt Raine needed a life outside of books but Raine swims and plays the oboe in the band. Cora and Raine had been best friends since Jr High when Raine found Cora crying in the girls locker room. Cora had problems adjusting to public school as she had been home schooled until then. Eirik was Raines unofficial boyfriend. Then someone knocked at Raines door and she thought it was Eirik but it wasn’t he said he was her new next store neighbor where Eirik and he needed to talk to Eirik as soon as possible. Raines father had been on a plane that crashed in the Pacific Ocean but his body had not been found but it had been three months yet Raines mom believed he was alive. Raines parents owned Mirage which was a framing and mirror store, with her dad gone her mom was pulling double duty and often beyond to clean up for the next business day.  Raine didn’t really see her mom much anymore. Raine had backed into her neighbor's mailbox, destroyed it but when she got home from her swim team practice  the mailbox looked like nothing had happened to it. She went over to thank “ blue eyes” as she called her new neighbor she asked him how he had fixed the mailbox and he said magic. Later that night Eirik showed up at her house  and climbed the tree to her balcony.  Raine tried to be mad at Eirik as he hadn’t answered her calls or texts but she just couldn’t be. If she had done what Eirik had Eirik would have been mad as Eirik had a temper.Eirik and Raine had been inseparable since they were kids. They had grown up together. Eirik was her best friend and there wasn’t a thing she didn’t know about him. Eirik had been adopted by his parents but instead of showering him with love, they traveled a lot and left him with nannies and a housekeeper he had spent most of his waking and sleeping hours at Raines house. Then Raine mentioned the new neighbor and Eirik asked if Torin had made her mad. Raine was attracted to Torin even if he wasn’t nice and definitely not safe. Eirik seemed to step up recently and claim Raine as his girl but Raine found she was still very attracted to Torin. Knowing Torin had used magical runes to save her life. Raine didn’t know what to think of the runes or the magic.

I loved the story until the very end of it which I consider a cliffhanger and I hate them and ruined the story for me. I was very disappointed in this. I will give it a 3 rating  Even though I know what Raine's mom said you figure it will be ok.  I did love the characters and the ins and outs of this story.

Wicked Abyss by Kresley (I love this author) Cole
Wicked Abyss - Kresley Cole

I absolutely love this series, Immortals After Dark. I set alarms for release dates, I get desparate enough to troll fanfic, I even have my tattoo dude drawing a tat for them. Something interesting... Before drawing the thing he is reading the books, he loves them, just wishes the porn scenes (as he calls them) weren't so frequent, I have no problem with their frequency ;).

 

This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling, probably the best I have ever read, and I have read quite a few of them. I could see a great resemble between this and Disney's animated movie, I haven't seen the new one yet though, I really want to. We get relatively new characters, and the story is set in a new to us realm were most of the previous characters are not present, so not a lot of revisiting going on, we do get brief glimpses though. I do wish we got to see a bit more of the Valkyries, I miss them crazy bitches! 

 

I loved the couple in this and feel they were perfect. The female, Lila. She is smart, tricksy, bold, and tough as nails. The male, Sian, is a hulk of a beast. He is also smart and tricksy, but he has some past baggage that is ruling his thoughts and actions. He does a lot of growing up during the pages of this story. They have great chemistry and I thoroughly enjoying reading of their battle to love. 

 

This is another match made by Nix. There is so much going on. Nix is trying to make her best hand before dreaded ascension is full force. I am considering a reread of the story. Can't wait for the next book. Beauty

A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1) by Kresley Cole
A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1) by Cole, Kresley (2006) Mass Market Paperback - Kresley Cole

A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . .

 

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

 

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .

 

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

 

An all-consuming desire . . .

 

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

Shadow's Seduction
Shadow's Seduction (Immortals After Dark) (Volume 17) - Kresley Cole

Shadows Claim, the first Dacians novel is my favorite in this series. I love the ability that these Dacians have. Mostly being able to turn to mist.

 

I love Cole's writing and the worlds she writes about. I was a bit worried after Sweet Ruin that this series was taking a turn I didn't like. I do wish we had seen more of our favorite characters, but this is only a novella.

 

A lot of people have issues with this being a m/m. I admit I really wanted a sweet Dacian vampire princess for Cas, but a prince worked. The are good together and the prince really tamed the demon. 

 

As far as story progression goes, this is a cliffhanger! Uhg... really? At least the next comes out soon.

 

In a nutshell: not my fave but not horrid.
