Andre was her sire as wella s her lover and she heard his voice that they should leave. Juliette was a vampire and she knew the cardinal rules of vampire culture was t o leave no evidence of their existence. Andre told Juliette she was too soft hearted and it would not serve her well in this time. Andre told Juliette they were still in New Orleans but it was much bigger than she remembered. Andre told her she had been in her tupor -was the vampire’s mechanism  for dealing with great strain- for nearly two hundred and twelve years. Juliette had a vague memory of fighting with a hunter before he had staked her. .Andre let her know he had to inform the Grandmaster he had found her. Then he added Marc Gauthier was the grand master. As they sped through New Orleans Juliette fek]lt the same trepidation she had when she first set foot in New Orleans after fleeing St Dominique Andre said once he presented her to the grand master they will go and see frederique as she would be happy to see Juliette. Then the grand master’s Stewart was his sister Sophie and shew as introduced to Juliette. She offered to take Juliette up to refresh herself. After meeting Marc and being questioned alone Marc’s nephew Chris had been badly mauled and bitten twice by a werewolf.  He had been brought in by Josh Juliette healed the boy chris who was sixteen. Juliette told his uncle that he would have his first shift into a wolf the next full moon. Then Andre said Juliette could do spells and witches stuff to prevent that. Juliette was Frederique’s friend before Andre changed her. There were more attacks by were wolves but they were man eaters this time and Juliette started to ward the city. Her friend Frederique as well as Andre and all the other aether in New Orleans, had died in a fire. There was no one to be found now. Juliette did stop Chris from shifting into a wolf and he would no longer have to worry about that. Chris was Marc’s nephew but also his heir. There was a lot of things going on in New Orleans. Juliette swore to be faithful to Marc and do whatever she could to help. Sophie begged Juliette to get a bodyguard. While magically warding the city against werewolves. Josh escorted her every night and Juliette found herself attracted to him but felt bad as it hadn’t been that long since the passing of Andre.

This was a great read and I loved it. I loved the plot nd the pace.I didn’t want to wait to see what was going to happen next. This book had my attention from beginning to to end. I loved Josh and Juliette together and how protective Josh was of Juliette. I loved how sweet Sophie was to Juliette and actually being her friend.  . Also how protective of Juliette she was. I loved the intrigue, mystery, betrayal and suspense in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this, it was a great supernatural book. I couldn’t find anything to criticize in this book and that was great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Blood Veil - Megan Erickson

This is book #2, in the Mission series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.


Celia has a past she knows nothing about.  What puts her in danger is her not knowing.  When Idris shows up to protect her, it could not be a better time.


Idris knew he had to take Celia out of her element.  Too many things must take place.  She may not want to learn the secrets of the past, but her life depends on it.  


The characters in this series astound me.  I love how strong they are.  I am absolutely in love with the heroes!  The characters are so obviously meant to be together.  Such a great addition to the series.  Cannot wait for the next installment.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

It is the summer before Year 6 and Harry is back at his aunt and uncle's house and he is waiting for Professor Dumbledore to come and get him to take him to the Burrow. Everyone in the wizarding world is nervous and know that he is "The Chosen One" because that is what is being printed in the Wizarding Newspaper. When he returns to Hogwarts he is treated differently and he is suspicious of Professor Snape and Malfoy. He begins to try finding out what they are up to and still go to all his classes. 


I borrowed the audio version to go with my Kindle version so I could listen to Jim Dale tell the story while I was driving (back and forth to KY and Columbus, OH). I would read the book version when I was able to sit quietly somewhere (like home after the kids were in bed). I do enjoy hearing Jim Dale tell the story he is a master at the art of storytelling and I do enjoy the Harry Potter books very much. They are kind of a mind candy.

Blood Red by Wendy Corsi Staub
Blood Red Mundy's Landing Book One - Wendy Corsi Staub

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This book was very well done. I have had a review copy of this book for a very long time and really regretting the fact that I didn't read this one a long time ago. I love a good mystery thriller and this book pulled me in right from the start. I had such a good time trying to figure out how everything would come together and who the killer would be in the end. I glad I finally decided to give this book a try.

I have to admit that some of my favorite parts of the book were the parts that let us in the killer's head. I liked the fact that we get to meet the killer from the very beginning of the book and even learn his name very early. His identity and everything about him was still a complete mystery to me. The book isn't overly bloody but getting to really see the thought process of this killer really took the story to a new level.

Rowan is a teacher and mother of three in the town of Mundy's Landing. She leads a happy life now despite a mistake that she made and put behind her in the past. When a simple package shows up that could threaten everything, she tries to figure out what is going on. Mick, Rowan's teenage son, leads the busy life of a high school boy. He plays a sport at the school and works a part-time job where he is trying his best to be noticed by the pretty teen girl. Rowan and Mick tell the majority of the story along with the killer but we do also get to hear from a couple of police detectives and Rowan's sister, Noreen.

There were times in the book that I did wonder where things were leading. Honestly, I couldn't understand why Rowan was making such a big deal about things. I kind of wanted to tell her to just move on but I had a feeling that there would be more to the story and there was. It was really the killer's point of view that helped keep the story moving forward. By the end of the book, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough because I had to know what would happen next.

I would recommend this book to others. I liked how all of the pieces of this book came together to tell a very exciting story. This book is the start of a trilogy but I really felt like the story in this book is complete. I am not sure if I will be reading the other installments in this series but I do hope to read more from Wendy Corsi Staub in the future.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from HarperCollins - William Morrow via Edelweiss.

Initial Thoughts
This was very well done. There were a whole lot of things going on in this book and part of the mystery was trying to figure out how everything would come together. Three were a lot of POVs that were used to tell the story and I liked that we got to see things from the killer's point of view even though I had no clue regarding his identity or motivation.
