Review ~ Entertaining
The Vampire Knitting Club - Nancy Warren

Book source ~ Kindle Lending Library

 

Lucy Swift has been let go from her job (downsizing) and caught her fiancé cheating on her. So she spends some time with her parents at an archaeological dig in Egypt then runs to Oxford to her loving grandmother to get some comfort and life advice. Except when she gets to her grandmother’s knitting shop she finds it closed and her grandmother has died. What?! But Lucy soon finds out that not all is at it seems and she must figure out what has happened or end up being the next victim.

 

This is a cute (except for the murder part) paranormal cozy that will not tax your brain and leave a smile on your face. I love the vampire knitting circle. What a great concept! Easy to read with wonderful characters, I have a feeling this series is going to be entertaining and maybe have some romance since there are two potential suitors for Lucy. But I hope not too soon. She needs some space first. I will definitely be continuing with this series.

Interesting world, good read
A Magic Redemption (Demon's Witch #5) - Tena Stetler

This took me a bit to get into. I liked the world that Tena Stetler built, and I enjoyed the characters within. Synn wanted to protect those around her, and Gavin wanted her forever. Danger swirled around, surprises popped up, and family held all together. This was the first book in this series that I read, and it was a nice read.

I received an ARC through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

WICKED SAINTS BY EMILY A. DUNCAN
Wicked Saints (Something Dark and Holy #1) - Emily A. Duncan

Any book that is labeled for fans of Leigh Bardugo has a lot to live up to. I typically try not to get too hype when I see things like that, because as you know all too often they end up falling short. Well, my friends, I'm oh so happy to report that was not the case with Wicked Saints!

 

This book sucked me in from the very beginning, with magic, war, Gods, courtly shenanigans and compelling characters this was an unrelenting page-turner. Not for the faint of heart, there is (SO MUCH) bloodshed and betrayal, zealots and monsters, ZEALOUS MONSTERS...all alongside unlikely friendships, rebellion and romance. I'm officially hooked. I already pre-ordered a signed copy. I don't know how I'll possibly survive the wait for the next book....especially after that EXPLOSIVE ending.

 

Also, let it be said now, I'm team Malachiasz fo life.

 

 

I recieved an ARC of this book from St. Martin's Press via Netgalley and this is my honest review.

Storm of the Gods
An Areios Brothers Novel #1
by Amy Braun
Genre: Urban Fantasy


Thirty years ago, the gods of Greek legend returned to the world. Their return restored their powers, which had been spent in a cataclysmic battle with the Titans. With the ancient deities imprisoned in Tartarus, the Olympians now reside in Néo Vasíleio, formerly known as California.

 

Twenty-four-year-old Derek Aerios is a war scion, a descendant of Ares, the God of War. He and his brother, eighteen-year-old Liam, capture mythological creatures and rogue scions as part of Ares's elite military force. As he struggles to cope with his violent powers and the scars of a traumatic childhood, Derek tries to keep the two vows he has made: protect his brother, and never kill a human again.

 

But when Ares forces him to hunt and kill four rogue scions under Athena's control—by threatening Liam's life—Derek chooses to go after the scions in order to save his brother and keep his promise to himself.

 

Yet the closer Derek gets to the scions, the more he realizes that his orders are part of a deeper conspiracy that put him at odds with his mission and his conscience. Athena may not be the enemy, a traitor could be in their midst, and the Titans could be closer to freedom than ever before.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This new urban fantasy series is off to a great start with a host of strong, complex characters that easily fascinate readers from the very beginning. The brothers, Derek and Liam are intriguing, full of life and courageous males that blow readers away with their determination and ingenuity throughout the story. Derek is the older brother and the story seems focusing on him so far, but it obvious that Liam plays a strong part in every decision that Derek makes, so they make a great team and readers can practically feel the loyalty that flows between them. They certainly need that loyalty and their bond as they are up against the Greek Gods in a fantastic setting where the Gods have re-emerged from obscurity and determined to take back their Godships by force. The author brings the setting to life with descriptive words that create a modern setting with a little of a futuristic feel and readers can easily imagine the Gods and how they would rule their world which makes it very easy for the readers to become completely absorbed in the intense and exhilarating story. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly from one thrilling event to the next with lots adrenaline pumping suspense that builds throughout the story. There is never a dull moment to be found as the story takes readers on a complicated adventure full of exciting battles, betrayals, emotional turmoil and an extreme sense of expectation as each of the twists and turns of the story depends on life altering decisions and the whims of the gods.

Review! A Demon's Witch (Demon's Witch #1) Tena Stetler!

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today I am sharing the 1st book in the paranormal romance Demon's Witch series by Tena Stetler! Enjoy and don't forget to add A Demon's Witch to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C. is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running. Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.

 

Bruce’'s world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce’'s long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation. The undeniable attraction between demon and witch promises to tear apart both their professional and personal worlds.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Bruce is a six hundred year old demon and he is the Territory Overlord for the Western Hemisphere. Angelique is a pint size, gorgeous witch with a saucy attitude who sends Bruce’s world spinning out of control as if keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C. isn’t daunting enough. Bruce and Angelique are strong, vibrant characters that demand the readers pay attention and the chemistry between has sparks flying in every direction. The passion between burns hot which makes things real interesting when they butt heads on whether or not they should pursue the attraction. Things between this couple is further complicated by the fact that Angelique’s brother, Tristian, is Bruce’s long time trusted enforcer which adds to the emotional turmoil and quite a bit of excitement to the story. On a side benefit, this story also has a relationship brewing between Angelique’s best friend and another paranormal (sorry have to leave you in suspense on that one) which adds some intrigue and romance to the story.

 

The story is fast paced and full of suspense and danger as the attraction between Bruce and Angelique threatens to destroy both their professional and personal worlds. In addition, the story has some deadly and magical events taking place when bad guys try to exact some revenge against Bruce and Tristian. The author has created a fascinating paranormal world with an abundance of wonderfully intriguing characters that ensure that readers want more.

Tena Stetler is a best selling, award winning author of paranormal romance. She has an over-active imagination, which led to writing her first vampire romance as a tween to the chagrin of her mother and delight of her friends. After many years as a paralegal, then an IT Manager, she decided to live out her dream of pursuing a publishing career.

 

With the Rocky Mountains outside her window, she sits at her computer surrounded by a wide array of witches, shapeshifters, demons, faeries, and gryphons, with a Navy SEAL or two mixed in telling her their tales. Her books tell stories of magical kick-ass women and mystical alpha males that dare to love them. Well, okay there are a few companion animals to round out the tales.

Colorado is home; shared with her husband of many moons, a brilliant Chow Chow, a spoiled parrot and a forty-five-year-old box turtle. When she’s not writing, you can find her kayaking, camping, hiking, biking or just relaxing in the great Colorado outdoors.
