Beautiful!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8: Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8) - Joss Whedon,Andy Owens,Karl Moline

Gorgeously written and illustrated issue about Willow set during season eight of Buffy.   Won't make much sense without reading season eight first, but well worthwhile after.

Book Review: Tempting Raven (Curse Of The Vampire Queen #1) By Jessica Sorensen
Tempting Raven - Jessica Sorensen

 

I wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did. It started off very typical with the main character pulling the woe-is-me card and having no friends. What happened after that blew everything out of the water. Though I would love it if the author had gotten this book through a few more rounds of editing.

 

I liked Raven. She's the type of character that I see myself in if I were ever in her shoes. She's suspicious and questions everything. She wants explanations for (what seem to be) very simple and straightforward questions. I love that she doesn't give up. Her attitude and sassy remarks made her all the more likable in my eyes.

 

Rhyland almost won me over, but the cryptic conversations that Raven overheard and his avoidance of what should have been easy to answer questions got old very fast. He also seemed to read her mind during a few scenes (let me point out that he specifically stated that he doesn't have that ability). He was overall cagey and his brother didn't help matters in the slightest. 

 

By the end, I was already putting a few pieces together and had somewhat of an inkling to what could have been happening. Even though I ended up being wrong, it was even better than I imagined. I want to know if what happened in that ending is what made Rhyland bully Raven when they were younger? Can she actually trust him? These questions are circling my mind and I want the answers to them.

 

My Favorite Quotes:


"I'm all jokes and sarcasm."


"(...) My future, which felt like it had finally just started, is no longer mine."


"And Fate knows what it's doing (...)"

"Druid Vampire Requiem" by Kurokoneko Kamen

 

My Thoughts...

 

This story continues on from this author's  'Druid Vampire' where we now have the Huntress, Becca out to defeat Dracula and save Derek Dearg. Will Becca be making a big mistake in doing this to Derek?  I liked how this author brings in Becca's family [the Thorns] who were quite a humorous as they came for  visit.

 

As the story moves on the reader will get some more interesting characters such as Homicide Detective Alex and his police dog Maddy. It was quite a read as Becca's family will be attacked by zombies and as Alex will try to help them however suddenly a vampire shows up.  Will all be lost?

 

Will San Francisco be save from this 'Zombie Apocalypse' attack?  What will happen when Becca is kidnapped by Dracula and the Battle Nun Kendra Knight and the mad scientist Dr. Lazar Robinovitch are also in this dungeon captured?  Will Becca be able to figure out the connection between the Battle Nun and Dracula before it's too late?  In the end will Becca be able 'to use this weakness against him [Dracula] and fulfill the prophecy?  Will Becca and Derek finally get a HEA?  To get all of  the answers to all of these questions  and so much more the reader will have to pick up this good read "Druid Vampire Requiem" to see how this author will present it so well to the readers.

My Thoughts....

 

This author gives the reader quite a good read dealing mainly with Becca, Slaine and Derek.  Be ready for a lots of turns and turns as we get a very interesting thriller romantic fun read.  In the end will Becca be able to kill Derek now that she has become a true Druid Vampire Huntress? So, we are left with a cliffhanger where will we have to get the next read 'Druid Vampire Requiem to see  how the rest of the story will turn out.

Possessed by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco #4) by Susan Griscom
Possessed by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts ... Possessed by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco) (Volume 4) - Susan Griscom

Susan Griscom’s POSSESSED BY A VAMPIRE is an exciting and worthwhile read.  Becoming a vampire changed Preston (Elvis) Knight’s life for the better.  Lily Grey’s life has become hell since becoming a vampire.  This contemporary PNR is suitable for adult audiences.  It is told from Preston’s and Lily’s point of views.

 

Susan Griscom does a great job with her character development.  I like Lily.  She has some compelling secrets.  She is a great sister that will do anything to protect her brother, Julian.  Preston is a worthy hero.  He had a horrible life as a human.  He is uncomfortable with others knowing his past.  He is protective and determined.  Preston and Lily have fantastic chemistry.  There are a lot of things going on that make it difficult for the two to get together.  Preston and Lily are both complex characters that have evolved tremendously through their lifetimes. 

 

Preston has a great group of friends.  They are loyal and would do anything for one another.  I love the name of their band. 

 

Dorian is an interesting character.  He is complicated and you are not always sure how he is going to react.  He adds interest to the story. 

 

The plot was original and well executed. I like how the character’s lives intertwine.  POSSESSED BY A VAMPIRE is skillfully written and has great twists.  This was the first book that I have read in the Immortal Hearts of San Francisco series.  I am interested in reading both the earlier and future books in this series.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
