Mini-review: What to say about this book. Basically there's no mystery, really only in the kids imaginations. The only real mystery is that the Strange Woman shows up and at this point she's really starting to annoy me, mainly because I haven't finish the Europe trip arc and so I have no idea who or what she is.

 

Fan Cast:
Amanda "Mandie" Shaw - Emma Rayne Lyle
Celia Hamilton - Sadie Sink
Jonathan Lindall Guyer III - Louis Hynes
Grandmother Taft - Meryl Streep
Senator Morton - Donald Sutherland
Strange Woman - Linda Hunt
Alex - Ciaran Hinds
Minister - Burn Gorman

Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler @mhebler
Legend of the Chupacabra - Michael Hebler

Allright, Book III of the Chupacabra series by Michael Hebler, Legend of the Chupacabra. I got this book from Michael back in 2015 and finished it on 12.16.15. Man oh man it has been a wild ride…so, let’s get started.

 

Another fabulous cover in the series.

MY REVIEW

 

As I enter the third book in the series, Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler, I have been reading them one after another, I become more fond of Jessie and her tenacity. She had a sordid upbringing, is self reliant, untrusting. Life is not what she would have chosen, but she would make the best of it. If she ever became your friend, it would be for life.

 

I couldn’t understand her felling of dread and being stalked. After all, the chupacabra was dead…isn’t it? What do you think?

 

Hate and revenge are strong motivators, leaving some open to being duped and unleashing a horror never known before upon the white man. In this western world, we learn about man’s ability to be good and bad. Are they born that way or do circumstances dictate their actions? I love a book that makes me ponder deep questions.

 

Suspense, twists and turns, pain and sorrow, but love and hope blossom from the most evil depredations. Sometimes subsequent books in the series don’t hold up, but, no worries. Each book has held more depth, more terror and more suspense than the last. I cannot stop reading, the suspense and sense of urgency driving me to the end…but wait…there’s one more book. YAY!

 

OMG…NO…Michael, you are sheer evil. I had a feeling something had to happen, but, damn it! I sure didn’t see the ending coming and it was a fabulous surprise.

How far will Rhea go to escape Earth? Mate a big, bad (in the best ways), and occasionally green alien.

 

Rhea is leaving Earth and nothing will stop her. Not her controlling governor father, her asshole ex-fiancé, or the Department of Population who want to impregnate her. Which is why she contacts the one organization out of their reach—Celestial Mates. A questionnaire and blood sample later and Rhea is matched to a hunky, deliciously tempting, and alluring alien.

 

Erudan—once known as Teon, brother to the High Warlord of Vialea—did not register with Celestial Mates. Or rather, he’d never submitted his application. Yet a curvaceous, dark haired, green eyed human stands before him and demands they mate. Immediately. He lost his honor long ago and doesn’t deserve a female like the seductive Rhea, but that does not stop the wanting.

 

Unfortunately, others from Earth want her returned and Erudan is happy to show them the error of their ways. No one challenges a Vian warrior… and lives.

Going Green is book two in Vialea and book twenty-nine in the Celestial Mates series by Erin Tate aka Celia Kyle.

 

Each book in the Celestial Mates series can be read as a stand-alone. I picked this one up; because the blurb sounded nice and I’ve read and enjoyed other books by this author.

 

We jump right in and their is no true introduction to the series or characters. From what I picked up we continue the story that started in book one of the Vialea series and move onto the Prince who is the twin to brother to the King. Something happened in book one and now he doesn’t feel worthy of love nor does he feel he deserves a mate. As for the mate, Rhea, she’s on the run from her controlling governor father and her ex-finance which is why she signed up for the Celestial Mates. With a mate she won’t be forced to be in a loveless marriage and can find love, even if it’s not right off the bat. 

 

This story is an easy and light read. There is no real depth to any of the characters. The mating is quick. The conflict is quickly and neatly resolved. And, the world building it’s minimal. Their just wasn’t much in this story to fall for.

 

Going Green was an acceptable read, but didn’t offer much. Not my favorite by this author. 

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Review: Red Dragon (Hannibal Lecter #1) by Thomas Harris
Red Dragon - Thomas Harris

THE LEGENDARY THRILLER THAT CREATED DR HANNIBAL LECTER

Will Graham was a brilliant profiler of criminals for the FBI - until he suffered terrible injuries in the process of capturing Dr Hannibal 'the Cannibal' Lecter.

Years later, a serial killer nicknamed 'the Tooth Fairy' is massacring entire families each full moon. With the FBI desperate for progress, Will reluctantly agrees to consult. But he soon realises that he alone can't crack the case; he needs the help of the only mind even better than his own at understanding the mentalities of psychopaths.

The mind of Hannibal Lecter.

But Hannibal is playing his own twisted game from the asylum for the criminally insane. Will isn't alone in getting advice from the cannibal. So is the Tooth Fairy - the man haunted by visions of the murderous Red Dragon…

 

 

Well I wanted my scary/spooky read this month and I got it.

Not sure there is much to say about this book other than I understand now why it was such a hype and still is.  It is one hell of a a dark and twisted book and while at times I wanted to hide or throw up I loved every bit of it.

The writing I had to get used to, all the different POV were a bit confusing at once but caught on pretty fast.   Though for a book that advertised “THRILLER THAT CREATED DR HANNIBAL LECTER” we don’t get that much of him. I assume that will change in future books.

I liked Will Graham for the most part and his thinking and his head-space, what I could not really connect to was his relationship with Molly . It just felt off and odd.

Dolarhyde, oh he was a whole other category off messed up, even as we go into his really messed up childhood I didn’t know if that should be an excuse or not. But its clear early on that he has some severe issues and as the story goes on it just gets worse and we follow him coming undone more and more.

I have to say though as we get to the end or close to, I was like well that was sort of anti-climatic but then we get the nice surprise …. Oh wow

That also goes for the very end which pretty much sets us up for more Lecter, or at least I’m hoping to.

It goes without saying that this book is not for people with a weak stomach or lighthearted, and should come with all the trigger warnings there are. That being said the books is hauntingly sick minded and twisted but I loved it. Few minor things but nothing really that jumps out, the things I had a problem with the most was the POVs but that’s about it.

I rate it 4.5★

Sexy
Sexy Dare - Carly Phillips

Faith is building her business the best she knows how.  All while trying to stay hidden from the danger she knows is trying to find her.  When she meets a hot guy willing to be of help it is such a nice change of pace.  But a risk she may need to avoid.

 

Jason AKA "Jase" Has been wanting to bring his business up to the next level.  After a chance encounter helping a damsel in distress, he gets the courage to ask his business partners to take the risk with him.  Now he just needs to man up and take the risk in asking her out too.

 

This was a slower start than I expected.  I like that the characters were very compelling.  They had more to their story, and really did need each other.  Then there were the sparks between them that kept the heat simmering until it erupts into flame.  Such a good read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
