Presence: Caged by Charity Becker
Presence Caged - Charity Becker

 

syns

 

Dark times are ahead for Mina Jewel and those she holds most dear. The return of an old nemesis, impossible creatures stalking the night, and a major threat to every Lycan in Washington State all converge to send Mina spiraling out of control. But that's only the beginning. If Mina can't put the pieces together and solve these mysteries quickly, it won't be only her Lycan comrades that suffer. Presence is in imminent danger, and if Mina fails, it's only a matter of time before the surreptitious organization meets its demise. War is coming, whether Mina is prepared or not. There's no way to save them all, but how will Mina choose who lives and who dies? And can she live with herself after the dust finally settles?

 

my though

 

 I was really nervous starting this book after hearing teasers that we might or might not lose a fan favorite character in this book.  I was thinking that I have a pretty good idea of who it might be going in but the further I got into the book I realized that it is pretty much open season and it could be anyone and anytime. That alone kept me of the edge of my seat the entire book.

Did we lose someone dear to us in this book? I can’t say ! But what I can say that it is a wicked, emotional, scary, gruesome and suspenseful ride through the book.

Never a dull moment and a lot of twists and turns throughout that keep us guessing.

Last we left Mina , she was happy and almost relaxed but that will not last long. She is dragged down the rabbit hole once again, but this time she is not a lone and has someone to keep her grounded and reinsure her. Latrator. He is there for her and reinsures her, when they “naysayer” is working hard to throw her of her game. It was kinda hard to see Mina falling back to her self-doubts and all that but it was good to see that she had someone, telling her otherwise.

An old enemy returns and is after the ones she loves, but Mina first has to figure out who it is that is killing of pack members and is after her and her family.

With Latrator having to deal with health issues and Presence undergoing some really messed up  changes, Mina is almost left alone to deal with it and she is racing the clock trying to safe everyone. But can she save everyone.

There are so many things happening it is hard to mention it all in review without spoilers, but let me tell you it is a wild ride for poor Mina and her clan.

Justice is also acting a little strange and out of character and I’m not sure if I trust him all the way , but then again after seeing Mina receiving a major blow from friends and loved ones I’m not sure if I should trust anyone at this  point .

The ending was a killer cliffhanger and I could not believe it ….. I just wanted to scream.

Overall AWESOME book and I cannot wait for the next one. It was a great thrilling, gory , surprising book.

I rate it at a full 5 ★

Presence: August Heat by Charity Becker
Presence: August Heat - Charity Becker

Synopsis:

 

Following an anonymous tip left at her office, Mina Jewel begins investigating a bizarre string of random murders. When she finds herself under “The Surgeon’s” blades, she realizes there’s nothing random about the murders at all, and the crazed serial killer has bigger plans for Port Orchard, Washington.

Between a suffocating heatwave, her volatile dealings with Justice, and a difficult physical recovery, Mina’s gifts are going haywire. Without help, she’s afraid she’ll lose control and her Fury will burn everything in its path.

But there’s no time for recovery or fixing her personal problems. When the Surgeon targets Mina’s pack mates, a disturbing pattern begins to emerge. For their safety, the pack is sent away, and it’s up to Mina to stop the killer alone.

Just when she thinks she’s figured it out, her investigation takes her down a path she never imagined possible. A path leading to betrayal, cover-ups, and another piece of the puzzle of her traumatic childhood.

 

My thoughts:

 

I think this was my favorite book in the series so far.

I thought it had a somewhat different feel to it than the previous books. We don’t get to see so much of Presence or Justice in this book. Mina leaves Washington for a trip. We get a lot more about her pack and Jacob Latrator.  Believe it or not but Mina actually has a few great and happy moments in this book, not that it lasts but still.

After enduring nine years of psychiatric care and whispers of her guilt, Mina is hell-bent on clearing her name, exposing Cadric for the sadistic pedophile he really was, and uncovering the true identity of the strange being who saved her life.... See More Through a whirlwind of near-death experiences and sanity- shattering revelations, Mina discovers that Washington is a hotbed of supernatural activity, Cadric's sinister plan didn't die with him, and that she could hold the key to ending the suffering of millions. . .

Presence: Wolf Moon

A rogue werewolf threatens the safety of Port Orchard, Washington, but all Mina Jewel can think about is the sudden flood of unrelated missing children cases. Between her private eye gig, a rash of unexplained and debilitating health issues, and her duties to Presence--an underground society of psychic investigators and practitioners--Mina barely has time to deal with her screwed-up private life. Time is running out for the little ones, and Mina knows it. Frustrated with her lack of leads, Mina becomes careless, endangering Presence and thrusting herself into a war between Lycans she doesn't trust and the people who fear, hate, and hunt them. Now Mina must decide who to side with, knowing if she chooses wrong, the missing children won't be the only ones to lose.

Presence: Smoke and Fire

When the Port Orchard police come to Mina Jewel for help, she knows it should be an interesting case. But not even the promise of a preternatural mystery can keep her interest very long with all the other crap on her plate. A sudden rush of missing teens and no clues to track them with, an enemy from her past resurfacing without warning, and a life-shattering revelation bring Mina face to face with one of her worst fears. And all this before she s even recovered from losing her baby or truly accepting her Lycanthropy. But there is no time for Mina to pick up the pieces of her broken life when innocent lives are at stake. How far will Mina push herself for the greater good. . . and at what cost?

Desperate for a solution, but worried about backlash if her hunch is wrong, Mina steps outside of Presence to seek answers to an impossible question. What she discovers will obliterate everything she's ever known about Presence, her family, and herself. But Mina doesn't have time for self-pity or to rage at the world. The future of one innocent child hangs in the balance. To right the wrong, Mina must make a choice, knowing that lives will be destroyed no matter what she decides.

Church Gurlz' 2 In The Presence of My Enemy
Church Gurlz' Series - Book 2 (In the Presence of My Enemy) - H.H. Fowler

 

                      Title:  Church Gurlz' II  Author: H.H. Fowler Publisher:  More Wind, More Fire Publishing Series: [In The Presence Of My Enemy] Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Review:
"Church Gurlz' II" by H.H. Fowler...
"The manipulation continues as Doreen Lakatos releases her deadly venom against Tara, her son's fiancée, who tries to blackmail Doreen about a secret Tara has stumbled upon. But Doreen refuses to be backed into a corner. She knows some of Tara's secrets, too. Both women fight to the bitter end, as they realize that they both have something precious to lose. Who will end up as the one on top?
Jasmine, daughter of one of the richest men in real estate, is going after happiness, which she hopes to find with one of the Lakatos men. Will it be with Wynton or with Brian? But with Doreen in the mix, Jasmine soon discovers that her choice will not be so easy.
Marcia Gippings, the blind beauty, appears to have moved on from her "obsession" with Brian, but something happens that pulls her attention front and center for a man that she’s loved from the first day she met him. Will her life ever be the same?
In the Presence of my Enemy, is filled with lies, secrets, murder, and classic blackmail. Those whom you love the most, seem to hurt you the most!"
What I enjoyed from this read....
The novel was the second in the 'Church Gurlz's series and indeed it was a good read just like the first one  that will get and keep your attention all the way through the story.  If you like suspense then you have come to the right place because I was in awe of it all finding myself even holding my breath a little until I got through that part of the read where I was lead to go from angry, sad and then happy to back a forth depending on what the situation issue was.
The characters were mostly all continued from the first series and were all well defined, developed, colorful and believable.  Some of the characters you will fall in love with while their will be some that you will not like. Be ready for a interesting read where there will be much drama that will add to the intensiveness of this emotional read.  Even though this series gave the reader a ending, I a still looking forward to the third and last series of 'Church Gurtz III.''  What will this author add to this next series?   I found when that  author has written another amazing Christian story that I would recommend.

The Presence (The Soul Tracker Series #2)
The Presence (The Soul Tracker Series #2) - Bill Myers Like its prequel, this novel was decidedly bizarre as well as quite creepy at times. It was also a bit of a mind-bender, but Bill Myers still made this novel work somehow. I'm wondering where he will take this storyline in the next book.
