Devils & Thieves by Jennifer Rush
Devils & Thieves - Jennifer Rush

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was an entertaining read! As soon as I read the description for this book, I knew that it was one that I would have to read. Motorcycle gangs and magic...yes, please! It took me a while to read this book but that had everything to do with my personal life and nothing to do with the book. One I really had the chance to sit down with the book, I ended up reading the final 2/3 of the story in a single day and really enjoyed the experience.

Jemmie lives in a world filled with magic. It can be hard for her sometimes because she does not want to use her magic and being around magic makes her feel ill at times. She has never really worked to hard at learning to control and use her own magic and has instead focused on self-medicating to cope with being around magic.

Jemmie has ties to the Black Devils group through her best friend, Alex, and her brother, Crowe. A gathering of the different groups has tensions at a high. Things get even more intense when several people go missing and nobody knows who to trust. Jemmie finds herself at the center of the mystery and is determined to help Crowe find out what is happening before it is too late.

There is a bit of a love triangle in this book. Jemmie and Crowe seem to belong together from the very start of the story even though they don't seem to realize it. There is another guy that seems to want a chance with Jemmie but I never really felt like he was a serious contender. Jemmie and Crowe do seem to have a lot of chemistry and I can't wait to see more of them together.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that the world was rather interesting and the mystery was pretty exciting. I wouldn't say that this book ends in a cliffhanger but it did leave me pretty eager for the next book so that I can see what happens next. I definitely plan to read more from Jennifer Rush soon.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers via TheNovl.com.

Initial Thoughts
This was entertaining. I enjoyed the magic and how everything worked. Just enough romance and excitement to keep things interesting.

Rising Three
Rising Three - Jennifer Rush Rising Three - Jennifer Rush I received a copy for review through the KidLitExchange on Instagram. Opinions are my own.

Wow! It's not often that I find a book that keeps me guessing! While I guessed some of the surprises, others were unexpected, in the best way! When I signed up for this one, I was hesitant, thinking it would be an OK read at best...Wrong! While it wasn't a 5 star read, it was close, and I loved every minute! The only reason I didn't give it a solid 5 stars is that I did guess a few of the twists, and so the ending wasn't as exciting as it could have been. Still, it was a fun read, and I really give it more of a 4.5 for originality, magical mischief, and characters, many of whom I loved! This one reminded me a bit of the Heir Chronicles my Chima that I loved and hope to finish soon!

Altered Book Review
Altered - Jennifer Rush This reminds me a lot of Jennifer Armentrout. Not as well written but a fun paranormal romance for those that like the genre. Fun characters and a cheesy plot that isn't exactly original. Anna doesn't exactly know her past, its all been a secret. All she knows is life in the lab with the four boys downstairs, being kept and genetically altered into who knows what. Nick, Cas, Trev and Sam. When they all escape Anna's life is changed like she never expected...in fact everything she's been told is a lie. This is definitely a bit of a Mary Sue storyline with the big bad boys being over protective of the damsel in distress. But I really enjoyed it for the most part. Anna annoyed me at times with how naive she is at times. A fun and not serious read. I am definitely interested enough to continue the series.

Rush geht's weiter
Hide - Jennifer Rush

Es handelt sich um den 2. Teil einer Reihe.

Anna und die Jungs sind auf der Flucht. Die Sektion ist ihnen nach wie vor auf den Fersen, aber es gilt, die Vergangenheit zu enträtseln, um der Zukunft eine Chance zu geben.

Anna und ihre Jungs sind der Sektion entkommen und versuchen nun mithilfe der Geheimakten von Trev ihren bisherigen Werdegang zu entschlüsseln. Denn erst wenn sie wissen, was damals passiert ist, kann man die Gegenwart verstehen und sich eine Zukunft aufbauen. Und außerdem möchte sich Anna nur zu gern an ihre Familie erinnern …

Beim 2. Teil der Reihe macht die Autorin ihren Namen alle Ehre. Rasante Szenen stehen wieder im Vordergrund. Nahkampf und Verfolgungsjagden lösen sich gegenseitig ab, Geheimnisse, Lügen und Intrigen geben sich die Hand, und mittendrin denkt man mit Anna über die bisherigen Ereignisse nach, um auch mal verschnaufen zu können.

Der 1. Teil hat mir etwas besser gefallen, obwohl ich auch davon nicht ganz überzeugt wurde. Diesmal gab es noch mehr Action, viele wirre Wendungen und Rückblenden, in die sich die Handlung laufend verirrte und im Grunde wollte mir die Motivation hinter dem Geschehen einfach nicht einleuchten. 

Der temporeiche Schreibstil lässt einen jedoch erneut über die Seiten fliegen und obwohl es noch einen 3. Teil geben soll - zumindest in englischer Originalversion - kann man sich auch mit dem Ende des 2. Bands zufrieden geben, wenngleich hier eben nicht alles wirklich eindeutig ist. 

Meiner Meinung nach sind „Escape“ und „Hide“ nette Actionthriller für Zwischendurch, die einen durch ihr Tempo den Atem rauben, recht gut unterhalten, sich allerdings durch unverhohlene Unlogik, leider selbst um ihr Potential berauben.

Die Reihe:
1) Escape 
2) Hide
