Early Review! Iron and Magic (The Iron Covenant #1 / Kate Daniels #9.5) Ilona Andrews!
Iron and Magic - Ilona Andrews

 

 

No day is ordinary in a world where Technology and Magic compete for supremacy…But no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work. 

 

Hugh d’Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast. 

 

Elara Harper is a creature who should not exist. Her enemies call her Abomination; her people call her White Lady. Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself—and Hugh d’Ambray might qualify. 

Hugh needs a base, Elara needs soldiers. Both are infamous for betraying their allies, so how can they create a believable alliance to meet the challenge of their enemies? 

As the prophet says: “It is better to marry than to burn.”

 

Hugh and Elara may do both. 

 


I just went on an adventure to another world where technology and magic compete for supremacy and I it was one thrilling ride where I met mesmerizing characters and fought spectacular battles.

 

Hugh and Elara were the main characters that I met on this journey and they are strong, captivating and easily seized my attention and refused to let go once they had it. This couple were both intriguing and daring with lots of appeal and unique characteristics that made them stand out. As for the relationship between them, well it definitely had some electrifying chemistry and an attraction that had sparks flying everywhere but it was also feisty and full of turmoil as they fought each other tooth and nail throughout the story with snappy dialogue that has me convinced that a happily ever after for these two may be a long time in coming, at least they finally have a sort of acceptance of each other, so I can’t wait to find out how their relationship progresses.

 

Lots of excitement and thrills keep the adrenaline pumping throughout this fast paced and smooth flowing story with lots of twists and turns that kept me wondering just what would happen next. The bad guys and creatures are as fascinating as they are scary and cause Hugh and Elara a seemingly endless amount trouble so there was definitely no dull moment to be found.

 

I am a huge fan of the Kate Daniels universe and I can never get enough, so I was quite excited to find out that Hugh was going to have his own story. Iron and Magic is well developed and full of all the fascinating elements and all the wonderful characters and creatures that make up the universe, so is it really any wonder that I was completely enthralled by the first book in The Iron Covenant series and I am eagerly awaiting the next.

Harry Potter Fans Would Enjoy This
Ice Wolves - Amie Kaufman

I almost didn't read this when I saw it was middle school level. It's hard, I'm a well aged adult, yes well aged. I like to think I'm mature and need adult level book to be entertained. But, I really loved the Illuminae Files she wrote so I dove in. I am not not mature or this was really good writing. I loved it.
The story follows two orphans, twins as they struggle to live free in a world separated by war and hate. There are humans who need protection, wolves who provide it and dragons who cause all the trouble. When one twin changes and the other goes another way the questions start forming and the truth slowly starts to unfold. One goes to be sacrificed one goes to a magical military school. There are a lot of unknowns, lies, hidden secrets and magic all new to them. One of the twins struggles with the need to save the other twin and new friendships who to trust. Meanwhile something is not adding up, and the teachers know more.
I got Harry Potter like vibes from this. Young magical child who never knew he held magic, finds he is so much more and attends a school for other like him, where a smart loner type girl befriends him. That is were the likeness ends. I think fans of Harry Potter might really enjoy this. There is no sex, no romance.

Release Day Review! Edge of Humanity (Only Human #5 / Kirsten O'Shea Universe) Candace Blevins!
Edge of Humanity - Candace Blevins

 

 

Book five of the ONLY HUMAN series...

 

Abbott agreed to let Kirsten seek revenge on Gavin, and she hopes doing so before she pulls away from the supernatural community will make others hesitant to come after Kirsten or her family.

 

Before Lauren goes away to college, Kirsten wants to be sure she’s done all she can to prepare her daughter. They take a trip to China, and Kirsten hopes she can get her old teacher to train her daughter. However, when they arrive, things aren’t as they should be.

 

In China, the Lion Dance and Dragon Dance are ubiquitous, and the Monkey King frequently plays a part in both. Kirsten is friends with the Lion King and Dragon King, and despite the fact this has nothing to do with the legendary Chinese lion or dragon, the implications are far-reaching once she’s back in China.

 


I went on a wonderfully enlightening and satisfying journey with Kirsten O’Shea and her daughter in Edge of Humanity which is the fifth book in the Only Human series.

 

I don’t know about everyone else, but I have never been too far from home and Kirsten’s trip to China provided me with lots of picturesque and intriguing views of the fascinating culture and landscape. Kirsten’s journey was one that was quite fast paced with lots of thrilling events and meetings with wonderfully eclectic and fascinating characters and there was a few chuckles to be found as well. But most of all Kirsten discovers more about herself and her abilities which may have far reaching consequences in her life back home.

 

Kirsten’s return and her trip to bring Lauren to Cambridge is just as exciting but in a more dangerous way as they are situations from the past that need to be made right and of course keeping Lauren safe from Kirsten’s enemies. Edge of Humanity is fast paced and a fascinating and thrilling adventure no matter where the story takes place and I also got to meet more interesting characters and there was an exciting battle where Kirsten’s new abilities become to known and in a spectacular way which of course just makes Kirsten even more intriguing. The story also has quite a bit of erotic lovemaking in it, although not quite as much as usual which is understandable.

 

Once again, Candace Blevins’ fascinating and well developed supernatural world full of wonderful characters was enthralling and kept me glued to the pages until the very end and as always I can’t wait for the next one, whether it’s from the Only Human, Chattanooga Supernaturals or the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, The Dark Underbelly and The Dark(ish) Fairytale series, because they are all thrilling books to read.

New Release Review! (Chasing Dove (Branches of Emrys #4) Brandy L. Rivers!
Chasing Dove - Brandy L. Rivers

 

 

Secrets buried in the past will guide the way.

After solving the riddles of her father’s journal, Jacinda has finally found what she was looking for—and something she didn’t expect—love. With nightmares plaguing her, she runs away to protect the man who claimed her heart.

Unable to let her go, Chatan follows Jacinda, determined to prove she needs help. And not just his. She has more family than she believes, and they have the means and willingness to help stop Thanatos.

Chatan has to convince her running isn’t the answer while uncovering the deep secrets of the relics she's found, and how she can use them to stop Thanatos.

To finally free her from the past, they will have to discover dark pieces of their families’ history. Their destiny is entwined with a prophecy, an ancient war, and each other. What side will they choose?

 

 

Awesome! Chasing Dove, the conclusion to Jacinda and Chatan’s story, whom I met in Finding Hawk, is just as exciting as the beginning. In this half of the story, I was reunited with lots of the characters from Edenton and from the Branches of Emrys as well as introduced to new characters and even another fascinating place of magic called Pine Valley.

 

Chasing Dove is full of excitement, emotional turmoil, danger and of course the sweet and passionate romance between Jacinda and Chatan. Their romance is proving to be a very strong draw with a heartfelt and fulfilling attraction that readers can’t help but cheer them on to their very deserving happily ever after while they are discovering secrets from their pasts and discovering that their destiny is connected to a prophecy and an ancient war. There is never a dull moment to be found in this very thrilling story which has a kind of adventure feel to it as they travel to different places and rifts during their journey to discover how to defeat Jacinda’s lifelong enemy before he can become even stronger which adds a bit of urgency to the story as well ensuring that the readers stay on the edge of their seats throughout.

 

Brandy L. Rivers has such a gift for creating wonderful, exciting stories and her world of Others just continues to fascinate me and her characters are well developed and easily connected to and I can’t help but fall for each and every one. I love visiting each of the three series, Others of Edenton, Others of Seattle and the Branches of Emrys and I certainly can’t wait to visit some more and to discover even more magical places with fascinating and new characters is such an awesome addition to these worlds because that means that there is more possibilities for stories.

Review! Crossroads of Bones (Katie Bishop Series #1) Luanne Bennett!
Crossroads of Bones - Luanne Bennett

 

 

Katie Bishop would have taken her secret to the grave, but . . .
a bunch of fat cat society folks smelled her out and made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

 

Katie just wants to run her tattoo business quietly under the radar. But when a man walks into her shop and hands her a drawing of the same tattoo she's been dreaming about for weeks, things start to spin out of control. The last two people who tried to apply that tattoo are dead.

 

Only half human, it's her other half that an elite group wants to hire-a group of Savannah's more privileged citizens, including the city's reigning coven of witches.

 

There's a rogue god on the loose, and Katie is the only one who can send him back to hell before he breaks open the crossroads and lets the underworld waltz right in-if he manages to get that deadly tattoo inked onto his back.

 

 

I just found a new urban fantasy series – Katie Bishop Series - that is full of some unique beings and the first book in the series –Crossroads of Bones is a fascinating story that caught my attention and made sure that I want to read more Katie Bishop adventures.

 

Katie Bishop is a strong, charismatic character that has some unique elements that make her a bit different from other dragon shifters and her tough girl personality and her past makes her vulnerable to a threat that she didn’t see coming and has brought her to the attention of the council. There is a quite a bit of some steamy and sexy love scenes and a hot and sexy biker that has some unique qualities of his own. All the characters in the story are strong and all of them have their own quirks that make them fun and intriguing characters that easily draw readers in and ensure that readers want to know more.

 

The steady to fast paced plot keeps readers glued to the pages with lots of intrigue, thrills and surprising twists that keep the readers guessing and very curious as to just what will happen next and wondering how Katie will get out of the fix she finds herself in. It’s not non-stop action but has quite a bit of exciting events and the characters provide a lot of fascinating input to the story, although the story is a little choppy, not sure why I felt that way, but it wasn’t enough to distract from the interesting story line.

 

It seems that the next story Blackthorn Grove has been released so I will be adding to my TBR pile as soon as possible to find out just what happens next especially as Katie got some important information regarding what she is at the end of this one.
