10 Characters in the Mercy Thompson Series You Must Meet
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

So this is a round-up I did for B&N SciFi, which is a little listicle-y because it's number 10 in a series and nobody much cares about, like, an actual review at that point. Either you'll read it because you're on the hook, or you won't.

 

But coming up with the list kinda reminded me how kinda terrible the Mercy Thompson series is about relationships between female characters. I think there's a big step forward in Silence Broken -- Mercy has real conversations with Honey, that Russian witch lady, and Marselia -- but that doesn't precisely make up for the previous 9 novels. It ends up being one of those bummers where I pretty much like everything about a series but a huge fucking gaping hole where normal human interaction should exist between people of the same gender, but alas, it doesn't. Or it does a little not, but. 

 

Oh, but as per the actual plot: I thought this one unstuck some stuff that had been, um, stuck, in the few previous. Mercy ends up kidnapped into Europe, so we get a whole new political and literal landscape to deal with. I though it shook up some things that needed shaking up in the Mercyverse.

Warrior angels, vampire hunters, and angels gone bad heat up this altogether sizzling paranormal alternate universe, from the bestselling author Nalini Singh.

 

Angels' Judgementis the compelling story of passion, love and danger in the Guild Hunter world. Sara and Deacon are Guild Hunters, their life's work is catching and capturing - or killing - rogue angels. It's dangerous work and sometimes life or death decisions must be made in a moment. And when a judgement has to be made, should love be allowed to get in the way . . . ?

 

Goodreads

 

 

** Read as part of Angels’ Flight

 

Angels’ Judgment is currently available in Angels’ Flight & Must Love Hellhounds. Not published as a single title yet.

 

This one we get Sara Haziz story. She is a human-born Guild Hunter who later becomes the Guild Director for America. Before she becomes the Director she is sent on a mission and tested by the Archangel’s – The Cadre. But, she’s not alone. Yummy, Deacon is at her side. He’s their to offer protection and to help Sarah on her mission. 

 

It’s action-packed and gritty. I loved every moment of it. They are hunting one of their own, a Guild Hunter who may or may not have gone off the deep end. Sarah uses her mind along with her crossbow to her advantage. Deacon was a amazing. He does his job well, but he can also be light and funny. The chemistry was off the charts with these two and those love scenes, steamy. 

 

Angels’ Judgement was a treat. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Deacon become lovers. This novella was perfect. Their is action, danger, blood, and romance.

 

Rated: 5 Stars

Owner/Review and mind behind Angel’s Guilty Pleasures. However what I am not is a writer. I apologize now for the grammatical and punctuation errors I make, because I know I’m going to make them. I’m a mother, wife, dog owner, animal, and book lover. My favorite animals are horses. As for reading I love all things paranormal & urban fantasy. My favorite shifters are dragons!

Review:

"Of Beast and Bonds" by N.D. Jones

 

My Thoughts......

This novel was a the second in the 'Death and Destiny' which featured.....Special Agent Assefa Berber and Dr. Sanura Williams picks up where book one left off [from the extensive world built around Western African lore and their culture]. The readers gets a paranormal romance [darker preternatural element] that was quite complexed. in how this author presents this dramatic story to the reader. How will this couple have a relationship and 'the fate that will fight against them? Why wasn't this relationship not complete? What did Sanura's father have to do with that situation? How would these two main characters deal with 'adversity, strife, betrayal, death, trials and tribulations?' How will 'having faith, love and strength' aid these two as the deal with all that is put in front of them? To find out all these answers to the questions and much more you will have to pick up the well written read and see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to the reader.

Be ready for a interesting long mythology ride as this author take you in a story full of 'strife, turmoil, mythical depictions, murders, vivid imagery, battles, destruction's, betrayals and death.'

 

The characters from [Sanura, Assefa, Rashad, Makena, Mike, Mimi Wata, Omar, Greg Zareb, Omar, Sam, Stephen, Manute, Dahad, Najja, Michael, Cynthia, Eric, Rachel, Pilar, Paul] and to name a few were well developed, strong, willed, portrayed with imaginations that were off the chart giving the reader one good read that will definitely keep your attention to the end. This author really knows how to give the readers some interesting 'hot sexy love scenes.' In the end will these two Assefa and Sanura [ Fire Witch and Cat of Legend] get their HEA?

If you are looking for a very strong and entertaining read [of African Mythology with some urban fantasy/paranormal romance] then you have come to the right place for "Of Beast and Bonds" will give it all to you.

 

I received a copy by winning a complementary read of 'Of Beast and Bonds' and this is my honest opinion.
