Hero Rising, The Four Book Secret Guardians Boxed Set, Secret Guardians Book #1 by H.T. Night
Hero Rising (Secret Guardians Book 1) - H.T. Night

Hero Rising, The Four Book Secret Guardians Boxed Set, Secret Guardians Book #1 by H.T. Night is a grand adventure. I gave it four stars.

 

The Tandra world are humans. Josiah goes on a crusade to help them escape the evil that surrounds them. He becomes a protector and superhero. He is also a vampire and a werewolf but is not immortal.

 

He heads for New York along with Tommy, the werewolf. Tommy was engaged to his sister before the accident killed her and her parents. After that, they bonded and were like brothers. Tommy now is a coach for MMA fighters.

 

Josiah flew in his eagle form to San Bernardino where he came across a building on fire with people trapped. "But fire. Yeah, I was cautious about my own hide like that. But there was no way I could turn my back on the....If I didn't help, if I walked away from people who could have been saved; it would haunt me for the rest of my days."

 

I bought it and read it in one sitting. I look forward to reading Hero Unbound (Secret Guardians Book 2).

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-07-13 20:34
Wild Blood by Nancy A. Collins
Wild Blood - Nancy A. Collins

Wild Blood by Nancy A. Collins
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When tragedy befalls Skinner Cade, he sets out to discover his origins - just who was his biological parents? Unable to keep his temper in check, his search soon takes a detour as he lands himself in prison, where an incident results in an all-out bloodbath. A monster resides within Skinner, one he's unsure how to handle, and when he's introduced to the world of the vargr, he's not even sure he wants to learn of his ancestry.

(WARNING: This review contains MAJOR spoilers.)

This was an impulsive buy at the local secondhand bookstore, as first and foremost, the cover caught my eye. It seemed almost comedic, so I was under the impression it would include some sort of black humour. I was wrong, however, and was confronted with over the top depictions of rape and incest that were heavily integrated into the plot itself. Don’t get me wrong, I love werewolves; the more brutal the better, but this was the first time where such disturbingly sexualised topics dominated the pages. It became apparent that important story elements were sacrificed in order to rush the plot along, and focus primarily on graphic content. I should also mention that I don’t have any issues with graphic content concerning sex, however if I feel such matters damage the overall story, then that’s where my problems lie. Despite being a short book, a lot actually happens; there’s before, during and after prison, as well as the rut melee with a lot in between. There certainly were interesting characters and predicaments that Skinner got himself into, but they were so underdeveloped that I just couldn’t get a proper sense of them.

Let’s start with the prison and Skinner’s relationship with Cheater. There appeared to be a connection between them, or something I couldn’t quite grasp. Cheater’s dream and use of the term “Prince” was certainly interesting, but it was so ridiculously vague. I also felt that the friendship in itself was bewildering, as Skinner, of whom was supposed to be a “good guy”, was perfectly fine with his companion stealing and murdering. If this had of been fleshed out, with time given to properly establish them both, then it just might have made sense. This goes for the later half of the book as well, where things rapidly progressed until Skinner was suddenly of great importance.

I actually liked Skinner to an extent, and I enjoyed that his life took a radical turn into the world of claws and teeth, but I couldn’t attach myself nor particularly care what came of him when his development left a lot to be desired. As a person, Skinner often fluctuated between being decent and being rather questionable, with what actually drove his actions leaving nothing but confusion. I think the intention was for him to be the unexpected hero; the good man thrown into the fray and always coming out on top - which I, ultimately, didn't care for. Don't even get me started on the last minute romance attempt, because it was positively absurd.

The shock factor loses its value if overexposed, at least in my case. Sure, the first rape scene (of a dog, I might add), was very much unpleasant, but each taboo subject thereafter only numbed me further. By the end, I wasn't even remotely surprised by what transpired. It was, without a doubt, very curious that Collins decided to go down the route she did - painting the species of "vargr" in a very ugly light, moreso than the usual bloodthirsty monsters of the genre. As it was, I had a hope that the entire race would perish.

In conclusion - I've changed my initial rating to accurately reflect my thoughts, from three stars to only two. It was overly rushed to appropriately develop the plot and characters, instead relying upon disturbing content to carry it through. A shame, as the concept itself was intriguing.

Notable Quote:

"The vargr are all belly and eyes. They desire all that they see. And that which they can not have - they destroy. Completely and utterly."

Release Week Review! The Howling by Erin McCarthy!
The Howling - Erin McCarthy

 

 

Beneath the silver moon . . .
 
For six months the nightmares have been chasing Liv Lugaru out of her sleep. The same terrifying dream, the same fevered wolves panting after her, their hot breath getting closer and closer as a full moon hangs heavy in the night sky—until she wakes up drenched in sweat, with her fiancé, the brother of the man who broke her heart, gazing down at her . . .
 
Six months ago, Sebastian was almost killed by his brother in a power struggle within their werewolf pack. His disappearance opened the way for his brother to console Liv, win her trust . . . without ever telling her of their true heritage. Now Sebastian is ready to reclaim his rightful place—to rise up with the moon and claim the only woman he’s ever loved . . .

 


The Howling is a werewolf romance that is on the dark side and full of danger, secrets and passion. Liv and Sebastian are two very strong, compelling characters that draw readers into their story which starts off with a tension filled suspenseful moment and proceeds to keep readers glued to the pages as they wonder just where the story is going. The romance is sweet with blazing hot passion heating up the pages but the relationship has a major drawback, Liv will have to learn the truth about herself, Sebastian and Sebastian’s brother. The story is really fast paced and packs quite a punch for such a short story and a thrilling read to enjoy when readers are short on time.

4 STAR Release Day Review! A New Orleans Threesome (The Vampire, The Witch and the Werewolf #1) Louisa Bacio!
A New Orleans Threesome - Louisa Bacio

 

 

Haunted by paranormal abilities she can't control and plagued by nightmares about a demon that seeks her soul, Lily Anima travels to New Orleans in search of salvation. She enlists the help of an unlikely couple: a vampire, Lawrence Justice, and a werewolf, Trevor Pack. The attraction is immediate and fierce.

 

There's only one problem.

Lily's a virgin. And whatever paranormal problem she's having is what has kept her that way. Every time she's tried to do the deed, something stops her.

Together, the trio encounters magic and unspeakable evil, and Trevor and Lawrence attempt to help Lily turn her powers into a gift rather than a curse. Ultimately, to get the demon off her back, Lily's men will have to show her all the wicked ways the three of them can come together.

 

Warning: Read at your own risk. This book is filled to the brim with steamy m/m sex, a virgin who wants in on the action, and a c*ckblocking demon.

 


Whew! I just got back from a steamy and exciting visit to New Orleans, where I met Lily, Trevor and Lawrence. Picture this: A werewolf and a vampire, two very sexy males who provide lots of hot and steamy vibes all on their own, decide to rescue the damsel in distress, Lily who is having bit of a personal crisis, and invite her into their lives. With me so far, because that part is easy; all three are then caught up in some emotional turbulence and Trevor and Law have to decide if they want to mess with their relationship dynamic and Lily has to overcome some issues. Needless to say the romance part of this threesome starts off a bit rocky and heats up to blazing hot with some really hot sex scenes including mm, mmf, mfm scenes. The relationship is not the only thing that keeps readers glued to the pages, there is quite a bit of suspense and thrills added when the demon who haunts Lily nightmares turns out to be real in this steady to fast paced plot.

 

This visit to New Orleans turned out to be quite exciting as I kept up with this strong, captivating characters and since Louisa Bacio painted such vivid imagery, it was very easy for me to believe I was actually there. In fact the only thing wrong with this visit was when a couple of times during the dialogue, I felt as if I missed something, not sure what or why and it didn’t stop me from enjoying the book, so I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series when it re-releases.
