Of Breath And Soul (Ward Witches #2) by Jennifer Snyder
Of Breath And Soul (Ward Witches Book 2) - Jennifer Snyder

Jennifer Snyder’s OF BREATH AND SOUL is an amazing addition to the Ward Witches Series.  This story takes place where book one, OF WITCH'S BLOOD, left off.  Piper Ward and her brother Jasper agreed to help Tristan Jarek and his dragon tribe get back their magic after being cursed by the Vodun witches.  Piper and crew head to New Orleans for their task.  This young adult contemporary urban fantasy is exciting from start to finish.

 

I love Piper.  She is brave and honorable.  She lost her parents at a young age after they were murdered by the Vodun.  Her life is at risk, but she is determined to help the dragons.  Jasper is a good big brother.  He loves his sister and is extremely protective of her and those he cares about.  He will do anything for the few he loves.  That becomes very apparent in his relationship with Anna in this story. 

 

I love that Randal Vincent and Kenna Black from the Succubus Kiss Series make an appearance in OF BREATH AND SOUL.  There was an interesting turn of events that happened that required Randal’s help. 

 

The Vodun are menacing adversaries.  They are a scary coven that practices black magic.  They will stop at nothing to keep their curse intact. 

 

Jennifer Snyder is a talented and creative author.  She is excellent at character and plot development.  If you have not read book one, OF WITCH'S BLOOD, I would highly suggest reading it prior to this story.  Both books are fast reads and you will not be disappointed.  I cannot wait for book three, to see what happens next.

SCORNED BY: JENNIFER SNYDER
Scorned (Marked Duology Book 3) - Jennifer Snyder

Scorned was an exciting little novelette! I was easily able to follow along with the story, despite the fact that I have not read any other books in the series. After reading this story I definitely want to start at the beginning now though!

 

One thing I really loved about Scorned was that it was told from the “villain’s” point of view. I find these types of stories especially interesting as I think that the villain typically has quite a tale to tell. It’s fun to get the grittier side to the story. I mean most villains don’t usually consider themselves to be the villain, right? I think most of them, as was the case with this main character Shelby, consider themselves to be the wronged party, and embark on a path to set things right, even if they blur the lines of right and wrong, or completely obliterate them in their means to justify their desired ends. Shelby definitely fell in this category. After all, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And with a mother like Shelby’s, it’s no wonder she made the devious plays that she did in this book. I didn’t necessarily sympathize with Shelby, but it didn’t deter me from enjoying the story at all. I was pretty much glued to the pages to see what brand of viciousness Shelby intended on doling out on her unsuspecting victims next!

 

The ending was pretty explosive and I am curious to see what the future has in store for Shelby! Will the consequences of her actions eventually catch up with her? What are her next moves? Will this be a turning point for her as a character? I’d really like to see how things play out from here.

 

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Scorned by Jennifer Snyder
Scorned (Marked Duology Book 3) - Jennifer Snyder

After reading Jennifer Snyder’s Marked Duology, I thought that Shelby Killin was evil.  That was just confirmed after reading Scorned.  The girl is nuts.  Grant it, after getting to know her mom more it’s no wonder. No mother of the year awards for that woman. 

 

Scorned begins at the same time as the Binding Ceremony at the end of Changed.  I found it fascinating hearing the story from Shelby’s point of view.  Part of me wanted to feel sorry for her, but I really couldn’t.  She is angry and scorned.  She is very power hungry.  The way her mind worked was fascinating.

 

I felt kind of bad for Gavin.  If Shelby was smart, she would give him a chance.  Although since I like Gavin, I want him to stay away from her.

 

At sixty pages, this story was a fast read that was impossible to put down.  I’m dying to know what happens next.  Great job Jennifer Snyder!

Changed (Marked Duology #2) by Jennifer Snyder
Changed - Jennifer Snyder

Jennifer Snyder’s Changed is an excellent conclusion to the Marked Duology.  Changed takes place after the first book Marked.  Tessa Morganton is dealing with becoming a werewolf and all in entails.  Jace Fowler is about to become the new alpha to his pack.  Despite Jace choosing Tessa, Shelby Killin has not given up on snagging Jace as her mate.  This YA PNR shapeshifter novel takes place in North Carolina and Ohio.

 

My heart went out to Tessa.  She had to deal with a lot emotionally.  On top of that, she had to undergo physical changes.  She doesn’t feel like she fits in anywhere.  Tessa and her mom are butting heads, and we find out Tessa’s mom’s secret in this story. 

 

I was hoping that Tessa’s biological father would somehow tie-in with this story.  I wouldn’t mind seeing a spin-off with him that involved Tessa. I am interested in Shelby’s novelette, Scorned.  That girl is evil, I can’t imagine what goes on in her head. 

 

There was a good conclusion to the conflicts in Changed.  The story was well-written, and the characters are well-developed.  Changed is a fast read that was exciting and enjoyable.

Marked (Marked Duology #1) by Jennifer Snyder
Marked - Jennifer Snyder

Jennifer Snyder’s Marked is a great start to the Marked Duology.  The moment Tessa Morganton and Jace Fowler met they are attracted to each other.  Then Tessa’s life changes drastically after an animal attack.  This paranormal shapeshifter novel takes place in North Carolina and is suitable for young adults.

 

I liked the characters.  Tessa is sweet.  Her mom comes off as if she is hiding something.  Jace is mysterious and driven.  I really enjoyed the plot of Marked.  While it had the feel of a typical shapeshifter novel, it had some unexpected and interesting twists.  There are some fascinating conflicts.  Both Tessa’s and Jace’s exes, Sam and Shelby, are a little on the crazy side, adding interest to the story.  At a little over 100-pages Marked is a fast read.  The story held my interest the entire time and was well-written.  I cannot wait to read the next book Changed.
