Half Black Soul (Alexa Montgomery #2)
Half Black Soul (The Alexa Montgomery Saga) - H. D. Gordon

In the past few weeks Alexa Montgomery has had her entire world flipped upside down. She's gone from living a semi-normal teenage life to a life full of vampires and werewolves who all expect her to deliver them from the control of an evil dictator.

Alexa is the last of her kind; a Sun Warrior, and now she has left the safety of Two Rivers to search for her mother, but she's left her sister behind to do so, and Nelly is the one person that she was told that she must always protect. Kayden, a vampire who is Alexa's other half, has followed her on her journey. But, secrets are about to come out, relationships will break and danger lies just up ahead. Will Alexa be able to get through all of this and make it out alive? And, will she be able to protect Nelly from danger when she is so far away?

 

 

Wow! This book was definitely not what I expected at all. I really loved the first book in the series, Blood Warrior and HD blew me away with her writing and her story in that but Blood Warrior is nothing compared to this book. It is a million times better and there's so many twists and turns I was shocked at the things happening.

Alexa has left the safety of Two Rivers to go find her mother. Along with her is Kayden, her other half, the Libra to her Warrior and he will do whatever it takes to protect her. But by going on her quest, Alexa has left behind her sister. The one person she was told to always protect. Secrets will come out, relationships will break and danger lies just ahead. Will Alexa be able to face all that she does and come out of it alive? And will she be able to protect Nelly from danger when she is so far away?

I absolutely loved this book. There were lots of twists and turns and most of the way through it I was shocked by the secrets that came out. I really loved that we say a different side to Nelly. Book 1 was told from Alexa's point of view but this book was told from two points of view, Alexa and Nelly. I really loved that we had these two points of view as we really saw a different side to Nelly. The perception I got from book 1 is that Alexa has this dark side to her character and she really struggles with it throughout this book. But what I didn't really expect was for us to see a darker side of Nelly. Nelly and Alexa have always been so different and come across as one being incredibly strong and will stop at nothing to protect the people they love while the other was seen as more gentle and loving. In Half Black Soul we really see that they are more similar than first thought. Nelly is just as strong and while we always knew Alexa would do anything to protect Nelly even kill for her we see that Nelly feels the same way about Alexa.
You really see a different side to not just Nelly but all of the characters. Jackson really took a backseat in this book but that doesn't mean he is less important to the story. I was shocked to find out some of the secrets in this book and it's fair to say that after this book none of the character's relationships will ever be the same again.

Half Black Soul is really so different than Blood Warrior and it explores much darker themes than the first one. It was brilliant and the first book seems insignificant compared to this one.
If you haven't read Blood Warrior this is not a series to be missed and I would suggest this series to anyone who loves YA Paranormal Romance.
Throughout reading this book This Song kept coming into my head and I really think it's the perfect song for this book and I think it really portrays the things going on this book perfectly.
I genuinely loved this book and I cannot wait for the next book. I really think this series is going to just get better and better. HD has definitely surpassed herself with this book and I cannot wait to read the next one in this series.
Phenomenal!

Blood Warrior (Alexa Montgomery #1)
Blood Warrior - H.D. Gordon

When her home is attacked by murderous vampires, 17-year-old Alexa is forced to leave her mother for dead in order to save her sister. She soon learns that she is the last known member of an elite race of supernatural Warriors, and is thrust into a world full of vampires and werewolves who all seem to regard her as some sort of savior. Meanwhile, Alexa battles a monster within herself that seeks to gain control; a monster that seeks blood.

The hidden city she finds herself in appears perfect, but Alexa's instincts tell her that all is not right within its walls. When she is asked to attend a school of fighters, whose exams consist of gladiator-style competitions, she must decide who she can trust among the smiling faces. And, when she meets Kayden, a vampire she feels undeniably drawn to, she must decide if she can trust herself.

 

 

Wow! I don't really know where to start with this review. This book absolutely rocks. I loved every moment of it and I found it extremely difficult to put down. I couldn't wait to read this from the moment I saw the cover, it's such a great cover and look at those tattoos, they are amazing. It's made me want to get that for my next tat. I was so happy when I got a review copy of this book and I couldn't wait to dive in and start reading.

Alexa has always lived with her Mother and her sister. Her sister always gets special treatment while Alexa gets beat up by her mother, not in an abusive way, in a she-must-train-to-figh-or-else way. She has always hated her life and hated her mother but then when she is thrown into a new world of Vampires and Werewolves she finds out there is more to her and her sister than she thought. She must leave her mother to a crowd of evil Vampires in order to save her sister. But can she ever forgive herself and get on with her life when her mother may still be out there?

I really loved this book. After getting into the paranormal part of the book I couldn't put it down. I seriously felt for Alexa throughout the book. She's only 17 but yet she had to become responsible for protecting her sister. She is such a great character and she's so strong and will do anything to protect the ones she loves and doesn't care whether it will put her life in dangerous.
I loved seeing the love triangle evolving, I could see it happening before it actually did but then after reading more realised it's not quite a love triangle as much as a love square, if only we all have 3 super cute guys pining after us.
Jack, oh I love Jack so much. He is the best friend who loved Alexa so much and I just adore him. He's such a sweetie and he will do anything to protect her and would do anything for her to reciprocate his love. As much as I love Jack and don't want him to be hurt I fell head over heels in love with Kayden, he is the perfect match to Alexa, they are like two halves to a whole and I just love him. All the way through the book I was like please, just get together already and I felt for Kayden so much at the end. I understand why Alexa acted the way she did but I just wanted them to be together so bad.

I cannot wait to see what happens next. There was so many twists and turns and I was shocked by the way it ended. This book definitely has a Vampire Academy feel to it and any fans of VA or Half-Blood are sure to love this book. I can't wait to see what happens with the storyline and how the relationships with the characters grow.
A great start to what is looking up to be a great series.

Redemption (The Alexa Montgomery Saga, #4) by H.D. Gordon ~ Review
Redemption - H.D. Gordon

'How is one broken thing meant to fix another?

 

With love.

 

Yes, love. That was what I was fighting for. That was what I was living for. And maybe, not so tragically, that was what I would die for.

 

If you asked me, there are worse ways to go.'

Redemption (The Alexa Montgomery Saga, #4)
Redemption (The Alexa Montgomery Saga, #4) - H.D. Gordon The beginning of this book was probably the roughest for me. The writing felt a bit choppy. Different POVs and "in between" chapters. Not sure what to call them since they weren't really anyone's POV but served to inform the reader on what was going on. At times I was so annoyed with Alexa and her bitchiness but I guess I would be acting the same if the fate of the world rested on my shoulders and I was only 18. No pressure!!

Then there is saint Kayden. Damn that man puts up with a lot from Alexa but as he later states, their time together is counted so why waste it being angry. He is her other half. Such sweet scenes together.

Nellie... Poor Nellie. Broken. Confused. Faced with difficult choices. We were told from book one how this would all end and yet I refused to believe it. This was bloody. Sad. Full of love and hope. A bittersweet hope but hope nonetheless.

Throughout the whole book I was convinced that this was a 4 star read and not my favorite of the series. Mostly due to the writing style. Just when I was getting into a storyline I was jarred into someone else's POV. Yet, that ending and just the emotions this whole series has evoked is deserving of 5 stars.

Awesome, amazing, at times heart wrenching series. I will miss you Alexa, Kayden, Nell and even you Tommy.
