Nightshade
Nightshade: Die Wächter - Andrea Cremer
The Characters

Calla Tor
Renier “Ren” Laroche
Seamus “Shay” Doran

The Story

I found this book to be equal parts intriguing and annoying.

The Intriguing:
- WTF is going on? The whole mystery of the Searcher/Keepers is what I want to know more about. I’m dying for them to uncover the truth.
- What exactly is Shay (a.k.a. The Scion)? Why is he so important?

The Annoying:
- The love triangle between Calla, Ren and Shay. I understand that they are young and hormones are raging but we could have saved 25 pages by not talking about it so much.
- The double EFFING standards! “Oh, Ren’s a young alpha male it’s natural for him to go out with other girls and want sex but NO Calla you can’t dare have desire too.” I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist. They can take that crap and shove it.

Overall I liked the book. I think it some pages could have been edited out and some opponents (looking at you huge spider) could have been left out altogether. But I’m intrigued enough to go on to the next book.

Murder on Black Swan Lane by Andrea Penrose
Murder on Black Swan Lane - Andrea Penrose

Series: Wrexford & Sloane #1

 

 

I'm not sure what it was exactly, but this mystery didn't really work for me. Part of it may have been the alchemy references.; I was very pleased that the story didn't veer off in a woo-woo direction. And at least in this first book, there wasn't a silly romance. So in theory it gets points for that.

 

But I still felt pretty meh about it.

The Theft by Andrea Kane
The Theft - Andrea Kane

Lady Noelle Bromleigh knows the circumstances surrounding her birth, what she doesn't know is her sire's identity. So she asks her adoptive father, her uncle, Eric Bromleigh to investigate, just to know the whole truth. But when she's presented with the fruits of said investigation on her eighteenth birthday, her curiosity gets the better of her, and she travels to London to catch a glimpse of her sire, and on the way meets her destiny...


The better part of this story was pretty good. Though I sometimes wished someone would slap the heroine silly, she quickly "mended her ways" thanks to the hero's influence, and she ended the story a rather mature young woman. The hero was once more a typical AK creation; tall, dark, handsome, intense, confident and using the requisite nickname for the heroine.

While the romance left me rather cold (it happened rather swiftly and I didn't really believe it), the best part of this plot was the suspense—especially once murder came into play.
Unfortunately the real villain was rather blatantly revealed (to the reader, not the protagonists) somewhere in the middle, but I was still looking forward to how the case would be solved.

Sadly, the tempo dropped tremendously right at the climax of the story as scenes dragged on for too long and, instead of creating tension and anticipation, the whole thing bordered on boring as I waited for the axe to finally fall.
Instead, it merely brought down the rating.
