6.15.14 - Dark Seraphine - KaSonndra Leigh
Dark Seraphine - KaSonndra Leigh

Man, I have a short list of writers whose brains I would give all the gold in China to see into and would love to see what goes into their creative imaginations and Leigh is one of them.  

 

At first, when I first read Dark Seraphine I had a few difficulties that were all mine.  I seldom read books from the male perspective, which as a bibliophile, it shouldn't be a big deal, but one seldom can predict as to how one's reading style changes over time.  *shrugs*  Well, that was then and this is now.  I had picked the book up again since I had developed more of a taste for YA dystopian as of late, and this one became such a surprise to me.

 

FIRST! The deets...

 

"Mom always says the angels walk among us. She forgot to tell me that sometimes they're not all fluffy and nice."

Seventeen-year-old Caleb Wood has seen people he calls the walkers since he was a baby. It didn't take long for him to realize something…no one can see these strangers but him. They never stuck around or tried to touch him. And they never said a word. That was until one day on the first day of class in his senior year when an incredibly gorgeous girl strolls into his life…and things are never the same again.

Soon Caleb realizes he has stepped into the middle of a growing conflict between two ancient groups. And his ability to see the invisible ones, the half-breeds that want to modify the human race, just might be the only hope both he and the mysterious, but infuriating, Gia, have of making it out
alive.

 

 

The other interesting thing about KaSonndra's works is how she creates these worlds that often inspire music to pop into my head... most of her other works have and for a very freaky odd reason 'Bring me to Life' by Evanescence kept echoing in my ears as I read DS...

A Unique Magical, Erotic Novel.

When dreams haunt you in the most delicious ways and fate pulls you into destiny’s path, what can be done other than to accept and submit to it. 

Can Iria truly get what she’s always dreamed of or will it always just remain a memory? Being a rare creature such as her with exceptional beauty and rarity of existence should be enough. Though, all she wants is her desire, her destiny… To be with a man—one man. 

Are these dreams she’s having real? Could she really take on human form and become a Lady to be with the man she craves? 

Dezso discovers a magical creature—a being of incredible light and peace. He is drawn to it again and again, and his feelings grow with every encounter. He carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed. The only thing that truly brings light upon his existence is the beauty that warms his heart but seems to only exist in his head—with dreams and visions of a magical woman, full of heartwarming light. 

Will he ever know true love and happiness? Will he ever be able to lighten the weight and share his dark secret with another...? 

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist.A world where love WILL conquer all! 
 
 
 
Our Review
 


Wow ! What an enjoyable read something new and fresh.Who would have thought of a unicorn wanting to turn human in order to be with her chosen soul mate?What an enticing story from beginning to end.The book had somewhat of a fairy tale feel to it.What a remarkable love story.This story was just so sweet and endearing.The character's were lovable and like-able and easy to relate to and  even some with a sense of humor.
 
 It's nice to see the choices and sacrifices one will make for true love and ones destined soul mate .Iria was destined to love Dezso but, being a unicorn that was not possible until fate intervened and gave her a chance and a choice to shape her own future.The Goddess showed her what her future could be like if she made the right choices and what sacrifices and choices she might have to make in order to have the kind of future so so desperately craved.What a hard choice that must have been for her not knowing what that sacrifice will be ?What could be asked of you ?Your life as you know it perhaps?

I normally choose one favorite character to rave about but, it was impossible to make a choice among these endearing characters so I will tell you what I loved about the two main characters.


I just love Iria what a kind a loving soul she was.Beautiful inside and out whether a unicorn or in human form.I loved how she was strong and courageous going after those things she wanted out of life.Love being along the ride of her smoldering love affair with Dezso .They came to each other in there dreams and were falling in love even before they met.Loved how she took her destiny by the horns and the tough choices she made without knowing the consequences.Just a kind and loving soul to all those deserving her kindness.Loved the way she loved Dezso will all her being.Loved the way she took charge to learn in all things to defeat her foe.She was really one of a kind...


Dezso was a loving a kind man also but he also held a bit of darkness that he held within himself making him afraid for himself and for Iria. Love the way he Loved Iria it was all consumming.All her needs and wants always came first.How he always worried about her safety and the way he missed her when she was away from her.Love that he was a product of magic.But, most of all it did not matter to him the women he fell in love with before he even met her was a unicorn before becoming human.Love that he was a man full of patience and kindness.And overall just loved the way he loved Iria with his whole heart.


What a unique story about love and sacrifices and defeating evil in order to get your happy ever after.Loved all the magic that  surrounded the book there were mermaids, magic makers,shape-shifters and a Goddess with wonderful powers and of course the dark and evil ones.A surprising tale of all love laughter and happy ever afters....


We are giving it 4 stars.....

Sent on a rescue mission, Finn mac Chaluim is prepared to do his duty, hand over the lass and return home. 

But fate has other ideas. 

In the midst of a Norse invasion, Catriona barely escapes with her life. Masquerading as her sister, she finds herself in the hands of Finn who intends to hand her over to her sister’s betrothed, Laird Gillean. In the interests of bringing peace to her home, Catriona is determined to continue the ruse—even if it means going along with the marriage and denying her growing attraction to a man who keeps his hurts hidden behind a quick grin. 

If the green faery, Tèile, has anything to do with it, Catriona and Finn will come together—but only at the right time. Thanks to her last attempt at matchmaking, many paths were changed and now it’s up to her to put it right. Can she help Finn—who learned the hard way that sharing your life with someone only leads to heartache—get past his doubts? And will the battle-scarred Catriona even accept him into her heart? When Laird Gillean’s attentions toward Catriona become dangerous, both Finn and Tèile will find they have an uphill battle on their hands.

Another winner by Samantha...
 
This was an enjoyable read light and easy reading. I always love reading highlander romances and anytime I can get my hands on one of them to read I am ecstatic!

I love reading Samantha's romance's as they are always so sweet.This was a page turner from beginning to end.Just a fun read that brought you some smiles from time to time.Love being along the ride of a couple slowly falling in love with neither looking or even expecting it.As always they are always those that plot to become between you but, you just have to believe that your love will overcome the obstacles in your way.

I always pick a favorite character to rave about and mine would have to be Finn.What a sweet an love-able guy you could not help falling for him yourself.The care he took with taking care of Catriona was endearing and so sweet.Finn was just a overall loving person who cared fiercely for is family and those that he is charged with to protect.Loving on one hand and deadly when he needed to be.Finn carried around some demons himself that he needed to let go and by loving Catriona he started healing even though he was never realizing it himself. My heart broke for him as he loved someone he thought he had no future with and had to let go no matter what, he had to do the honorable thing.She belonged to another....So sad as he never planned to let another close enough to him to love again.I loved Finn's interaction's with his sister.I loved the loving relationship he had with his sister.I love there interaction's he always had with Catriona to he always gave willingly never expecting something in return.He wore his heart on his sleeve without even realizing it. I was rooting for him and Catriona they made a wonderful couple they were both perfect for one another .With the help of fate and a Fae called Teile there  may be a happy ending in this couple's future.

Catriona was another loving soul.Even though she lived in a household with no love from her father of twin sister she turned out to be sweet ,sincere, feisty and bold.I loved how she took charge of her future.Willing to make the greatest sacrifices a women can make for her clans people without no thought of he own happiness.How can you not admire someone like that?Loved watching her fall for Finn.How could she not fall for this hunky loving Highlander?Catriona was a brave lass taking what she could in the moment knowing she would have to some day give up what made her happy.My heart broke for her loss she must endure.Catriona really surprised me though she was tougher than I thought she was.This was one bold and feisty lass who was determined to change her own fate.

This was just a cute and sweet romance that brought you some smiles from time to time.The story had amazing and love-able and like-able characters overall.The plot had a hint of  mystery and suspense as there was an interfering Fae there to be sure to bring this couple into each others path.A match making Fae who would have thought ?Really loved it a looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

Be sure to check out some of Samantha's other titles what I have read of her books they have all been amazing reads...

Book Blurb/Synopsis-

 
Growing up on the tough Philly streets, Gwen O'Neill has learned how to fend for herself. But what is she supposed to do with a nice, suburban Jersey boy in the form of a massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather unhealthy fetish for honey, moose, and…uh…well, her. Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four-inch claws, Gwen finds Lachlan "Lock" MacRyrie cute and really sweet. He actually watches out for her, protects her, and unlike the rest of her out-of-control family manages not to morbidly embarrass her. Too bad cats don't believe in forever.

At nearly seven feet tall, Lock is used to people responding to him in two ways: screaming and running away. Gwen-half lioness, half tigress, all kick-ass-does neither. She's sexy beyond belief and smart as hell, but she's a born protector. Watching out for the family and friends closest to her but missing the fact that she's being stalked by a murderous enemy who doesn't like hybrids…and absolutely hates Gwen. Lock probably shouldn't get involved, but he will. Why? Because this is Gwen-and no matter what the hissing, roaring, drape destroying feline says about not being ready to settle down, Lock knows he can't simply walk away. Not when she's come to mean absolutely everything to him.

I have been reading this series and absolutely love it.I love all the characters and that they all carry on from one book to the next. I find that I really love and like the way that this writer writes.This author has me laughing from the beginning to the end of each and every book.Love the lines that she uses also thinking hum well said.Shelly's sexual encounter scenes a very erotic and very hot along with all the HOT men she has you drooling over wishing that was you  !LOL. The aspect that I like about the book and the series so far is that fact that she mixes all character's together like grizzly bears. she-wolfs, hyenas, wild dogs, tigons (mixed breeds) etc and having those characters search and find their mates among other breeds. The characters are strong , like-able and very protective of others and their mates.Well written and a very enjoyable story. A recommended read to all.

Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”

Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her. Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…

As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…

Wow ! What a fantastic read just loved it could not put the book down what a page turner this story was.Michelle G Miller is a new author for me and I have to say she didn't disappoint.I love it when I find new authors to read and fall absolutely in love with there works and writing.If Michelle continues to write stories like this she will be among my top favorite authors.

 What a great cast of character's I love them all found them all to be loving caring respectful and a times a lot of fun to read about they all were so engaging that they kept you turning the pages to see just what would happen next.

You always have to have one favorite character and Xander would have to be mine.That hot Guardian bordered on being a saint ! That hottie makes a girls blood boil.I was In love with him from the very first pages what a considerate loving and caring individual and also one heck of a protector.Wish he were mine...LOL

Xander was chosen to be Skye's Guardian and has been watching over her for many years but, one fateful night he finally broke a rule and showed himself to her creating a whole slew of new problems for them both.Skye is a bit of a mess growing up in a group homes all her life and feeling so alone has driven her to partying to much and  to make one bad decision after another until she meets Xander when her life is about to change . Whether its for the better is anyone's guess.... 

Xander has been chosen to be a Guardian to Skye's for a purpose as she really is a princess from another dimension and now in line to be Queen of her own realm.The kicker is she knows nothing of this and thinks everyone around her is crazy until a batch of demons try to dispense with her.Now she is starting to believe little by little.With no reconciliation of her past life she needs to put her trust in Xander to learn of her past and carve out a future whatever that may be.

Xander and Skye have a past although she does not remember him she has a strong bond and feels safe only when he is around.The two have a great relationship once Skye learns to trust and open up she starts to remember what they meant to each other and they start to rebuild there connection .Xander is in love even knowing it is forbidden he can't seem to not act on his feeling around Skye and Skye feels the same way towards him.So why not indulge there selves .....

Your heart breaks for this couple knowing that there relationship is doomed from the very beginning and even if it were not because of the forbidden laws  those enemies among them will do everything to become between them.I am rooting for them they make a beautiful couple both loving loyal and caring and just perfect for one another.

The story that surrounds the lovers is filled will tons of danger that is lurking at every corner. Keeping you on the seat of your pants just to see what happens next.The story was filled will love and romance and intrigue all the things that I love when reading a story.It was amazing to see Skye grow and become that strong confident person she always wanted to be. She blossomed right before our eyes.

Wow ! What a ending ! Can you say cliffhanger ? OMG ! I did not want the story to end.I am anxiously awaiting the next sequel.Can you say ?Sitting on pins and needle is more like it.A wonderful and cleverly written story and a recommend read to all whether young or old it needs to be in your to read pile.

You know you have written a fantastic story when the reader finishes the story and then goes back to re-read there favorite parts not wanting to let go quite yet. Into the keeper pile and will be a must re-read in the near future. We are giving this story a 5 star read !
