Till Death Book Review
Till Death - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I really enjoyed this one, as I usually do with Armentrout. This felt much more mature and very different from her usual paranormal romance series. Its one of my favorites by her and I want her to write some thrillers. Yes there was romance, but I loved the kidnapping story line and felt hooked from page one. 

 

Sasha has returned home for the first time in years. Her mom is happy she's home as is her best friend. But everyone still remember's her as the survivor. The one who got away from the groom. And now someone is terrorizing her, a women goes missing in Frederick and Sasha can't help but wonder if coming home was the right thing to do. But seeing Cole makes it all worth it. 

 

I love the relationship of these two characters. Another reason I really enjoy Armentrout's books is because she's local and I know all the locations in her books (at least when they aren't in paranormal scenes. 

 

Super fun and super hot. A quick read but just what I needed to get out of a reading slump.

Till Death and Beyond - Lyn C. Johanson

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I haven't heard of this author and she reached out to me to see if I would be interested in reading her book. The premise intrigued me so I gave it a shot and I am glad I did. The premise was interesting, a witch who has been reincarnated multiple times and has lived for centuries stuck doing the will of the gods. She is strong yet doesn't always see any hope and freedom in her future though she desperately wants it. Raven is a jaded man bent on vengeance against witches and driven to cure his tortured brother. The last thing he expects is to fall for a witch and have his views on what a witch is supposed to be like questioned. The villain in this story is fate; will she be doomed to repeat one life after another powerless against the goddess that controls her. There is a demon bent on manipulating all involved to get what he wants, a goddess determined to stop a prophecy no matter the lives she has to destroy, an ancient witch who wants the prophecy fulfilled so she can be reincarnated, and finally Venlordians who are witch hating humans. The plot is full, there is action, drama, passion, and well-developed characters that carry the story from beginning to end. My only negative was at the very beginning it was a bit difficult getting my barring as to what the goddess actually wanted her to do, her next mission wasn't clearly stated so I spent a chapter or two trying to follow what was going on and where the action was heading. But once Raven enters the scene and I get wrapped up in the tension between the two of them, I really didn't much care about the mission she was supposed to be on because they fed the story and pulled me into their turmoil and attraction.  I was pleasantly surprised how well developed the plot was and how much I enjoyed reading this book. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.

WOW!
Till Death (#1, Logan's Lonestar Heroes) (Volume 1) - Becky McGraw

Till Death by Becky McGraw is a phenomenal read!  This well written book is loaded with action, drama, humor and smokin' hot sexy bits.  Ms McGraw has delivered fantastic characters that make this book a joy to read.  Dave and Susan's story is an entertaining read from start to finish.  Till Death was such a great read I've already bought the next two books in the series.  Yes, it was that good!   I loved Till Death and look forward to reading more from Becky McGraw soon.  Till Death is book 1 in the Deep Six Security Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Review: Till Death Do Us Part
Till Death Do Us Part: A Collection of Newlywed Murder Cases - Rj Parker,Aeternum Designs,JJ Slate,Hartwell Editing

I randomly saw this book online and decided to purchase it, and it was an interesting buy. A true crime novel, this is a collection of stories about newlyweds who are murdered during the first year of marriage. In all cases, there is overwhelming evidence that the spouse is the one who committed the murder, or paid someone else to do so. However, even with evidence, there are a few cases where someone who you suspect is a killer walks free.

 

JJ Slate does a good job at providing the evidence in a form that is both interesting and straight-forward. While the stories are slightly biased against the (suspected) murderer, it's difficult not to let the emotions of the grieving families and their frustrations reflect in the writing.

 

Overall, this is a well-written and researched collection of tales of when the honeymoon ends early... or perhaps never started at all.

Till Death and Beyond
Till Death and Beyond - Lyn C. Johanson Review of Till death and beyond

Rating: 4 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

Amira is a tortured soul, one of the most powerful witches, that’s used in a struggle with the gods to fulfil a prophecy. Each life she lives and dies through, Amira remembers, she is a person who’s so beautiful on the outside but damaged on the inside.

The Goddess tells her she will be kidnapped and no matter how she resists she must do as she told, and go to the forest while waiting to be taken. She is no more than a puppet on a string.
Raven is the one who takes her. Witchcraft is punishable by death but Raven needs her alive. All witches are believed to be cold creatures but Amira surprises Raven time and time again with her selfless acts and soon a love blossoms between them, that’s intense and serious. Raven denies his feelings telling himself it’s a spell. His own story is as tortured as Amira’s, and with a brother whose mind is almost lost Raven feels responsible for the death of his family, and his brother’s diminishing health. Taking Amira he hopes to draw out the witch that destroyed his family and kill her, in doing so freeing his brother.

When Amira arrives at this home and shows her true nature, a kind and caring person Raven can’t deny the person she is and gives into the chemistry that’s burning in both of them. But the gods won’t let it be, a prophecy needs to be fulfilled and the demon Dazlog has his oar in too. On top of that witches are still being hunted, and Amira’s family is in danger.

The story keeps on taking turns until the end and it all makes beautiful sense, but the story isn’t over and I’m looking forward to book Two.

The writing was flawless but one thing that throw me off was the constant change between Amira and Raven. It changed within paragraphs at the start I had to re-read it thinking I was wrong but after a while it didn’t bother me but just throw me at the start. I have never come across this style of storytelling before, but once I realised what was happening I didn’t mind.
