Release Day Review: Revelation (de La Vega Cats # 2) Lauren Dane

 

 

Previously published; newly refreshed by author

 

Fall in love with the de La Vega cat shifters in this classic paranormal romance from New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane, a spinoff of the fan-favorite Cascadia Wolves series

 

The very magick that brought them together now makes them targets…

 

Kendra Kellog may have found her sister, but she’s still miles away from bringing down the evil mages targeting her family. Max de La Vega is exactly what she doesn’t need at this moment in time—strong, smart and the very definition of alpha.

 

The next in line to run his jaguar jamboree, Max is used to getting what he wants. Right now, he wants Kendra. More than that, he realizes she needs him—and he’ll do whatever it takes to guarantee her safety.

 

With evil forces out to siphon her magick, Kendra can’t afford to keep pushing Max away. And for once, Max’s cat and his man are in total agreement: Kendra is his to protect.

 

 

 

Revelation is an exciting blend of paranormal, action, suspense and steam!

 

Max and Kendra set flame to the pages with lots of chemistry and a relationship that reaches out and grabs readers and refuses to let go. Their romance is pretty hot and steamy but has lots of problems from external sources and past sources that adds suspense and heart melting emotions to the story that readers can’t help but get caught up in. All the characters are charismatic which really adds to the electrifying chemistry of the story and ensures that the readers wants to get well acquainted with each and every one. Kendra especially has reader’s full attention because she is an intense blend of warrior that is strong and bold but has a vulnerability about her that arrests the heart with Max being the uber hot alpha male that makes lingerie melt.

 

The intriguing action and suspense adds thrills to the fast paced story that keeps readers on the edge of their seats with anticipation and a few surprises. The story focuses on Kendra and Max’s relationship with bad guys that annoy the heck out of everyone and a betrayal that characters or readers alike never saw coming. 

 

The author’s world building keeps readers wanting to revisit her world with lots of engaging  and complex characters, intriguing takes on shifters and magick with a bit of a well-known character flaw (bigotry) spicing up the storyline. I really enjoy reading books by N.J. Walters because there is never a dull moment with her vivid characters, enthralling plots and brilliant worlds and I always want to know what happens next. Revelation and the de La Vega Cats are no exception, I was captivated from the first page to the last and I can’t wait to read Beneath the Skin.

Queer Magick
Queer Magick - L.C. Davis Queer Magick - L.C. Davis Love the cover and a little more than half was great but after that it kind of dragged and went down for me. I think the premise is interesting and the cover is lovely but it just didn't snag my attention. I'm not sure I'm going to read the next one even though I'm a tad curious. I'm also not a reader of polygamous relationships, characters getting maimed and decisions with no real options being forced on them.

Magick & Mayhem
Magick & Mayhem - Sharon Pape Magick & Mayhem - Sharon Pape While the cover is gorgeous and I seriously want a poster of it, it's a tad misleading if you take it literally. There's no flying broomsticks as that's a real thing in this setting, apparently.

↣I love how the magic is understated and simplistic, that intent and belief play such a large role.
↣Drawn in quickly.
↣Easy to read.
↣Ow: The Treatment of Aunt Tilly.
She's a stereotype of fat women, even includes her running and causing a scene over seeing a mouse. She's comic relief. She's a burden and a godsend depending on what Kailyn and the scene needs.
She puts on the typical fortune teller show, including g*psy garb, because "that's what people want and pay for". Why does every fucking book insist on using this reason to be lazy about their characters and perpetuate harmful crap?! Ugh.
↣Love the herd of kitties!
↣But the familiar magic and purpose isn't explained. Do familiars live longer than normal pets? What's so special about them? Do they really get to pick their kind of familiar?
↣Why the detective doesn't like Kailyn isn't explained or explored. It just is.
↣During the showdown I lost track of a major player. Went back to check and couldn't figure it out. Did they disappear into a plot hole?
↣Did not expect the last revelation about the town. I think that's very clever, ties things together and makes me wonder about the sequel.


There's a lot going on in Magic & Mayhem, so it's aptly named, but I don't think it was all executed well. I want to read the sequel to find out more and enjoy Kailyn, but Aunt Tilly is an annoying cardboard cutout which makes me hesitant to go further. Considering this was just published on the 2nd, I'll see what the next blurb is about and make my decision from there.





I hope that was helpful! I know this book would be perfect for some, but it's only mildly worthwhile for me.

The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, Lore & Magick of the Witch's Grimoire
The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, ... The Witch's Book of Shadows: The Craft, Lore & Magick of the Witch's Grimoire - Jason Mankey I've always been fascinated with Witchcraft and even dabbled in it when I was in my late teens. This book was an interesting and engaging look at the different types of Book of Shadows used and was filled with a lot of practical information for making your own Book of Shadows.

Told through the author's own personal experiences. As well as Including the history of witchcraft and examples of ceremonies for cleansing and protecting you own BOS, this book offers both the beginner and experienced Witch a little something worth learning.

The Magick Host by Jacquie Alanna Gallo
The Magick Host - Jacquie Alanna Gallo
This is a debut novel that gives a twist to the tale of magic (with a k) and vampires. It revolves around a trio of twenty-somethings and what happens to make their lives more interesting and infinitely more dangerous.

There is not a lot of explanation about why Skye/Eli can do the things he can, or even a lot of detail about how and why Eli was killed previously, but still this story will take you along. It is a slow burner but stick with it because it certainly heats up as things progress. 

I really enjoyed this book even though I wasn't sure about it, even when I was about a third of the way through. There are some editing issues where characters are called by the wrong name which does interrupt the flow, but on the whole, it is very enjoyable and definitely worth a read and a review.
