Release Week Review! Wolf Bound (Pack Bound #4) Leisl Leighton!
Wolf Bound (Pack Bound) - Leisl Leighton

 

 

The ultimate sacrifice, a love that lasts forever…

 

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch–kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand–new world.

 

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

 

Shelley Conners has good reason to hate and fear the powers that connect her to the spirit world and the insanity they foretell. But with the Pack's Trickster, Adam McVale, transformed into a Shade, a creature caught between life and death, Shelley holds the only key to saving him. Opening herself up to the world of the dead will only speed up her descent into madness, but Shelley never expects an even darker evil within – the Darkness, waiting patiently for her and the opportunity to destroy the world.

 

 

 

The conclusion to the Pack Bound series is a thrilling read that kept me on pins and needles throughout the book.

 

All the characters in this four book series are strong, compelling and easily draw readers in their story but I have to say that Shelley and Adam captured my attention from the beginning and Wolf Bound which finally tells their story certainly brings them to full and vivid life. They both have issues that readers can relate to and while they seem to be the most vulnerable, they both have very strong wills and strength of character that keeps readers completely enthralled. Their romance is sweet but so full of obstacles and hardships that the happily ever after outcome that readers are hoping for is held in suspense throughout the book.

 

Thrills and chills keep the readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation and wonder as the evil that threatens the weres and the witches grows and its plans solidifies into one that if successful will plunge the world into darkness and chaos. There is never a dull moment to be found in this medium to fast paced plot that has lots of suspense building events with all the characters working hard to find a way to stop the evil, but Shelley and Adam’s part in this battle has readers biting their nails during the entire story.

 

I was looking forward to this book as I have read the previous books and of course was impatiently awaiting the conclusion and I have to say that not only was Shelley and Adam’s story well worth the wait, but the author did a great job of answering all questions regarding the battle they are facing but the final outcome was one that is spectacular, exciting and very fitting for this series and there was no way that I could put this story down until I had read every last word.

GREAT book, good narration
The Supers - Sean Michael The Supers - Sean Michael
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted the AUDIO file of this book. Flynn joins Blaine's paranormal research group, and they visit an abandoned hospital. Things get real creepy and the guys are faced with a possession, a haunting a tragic love story and a twist I did not see coming! Another one of those books that kinda creeps up on ya and you have no idea, not a single clue about how its all gonna go down! While there is immediate attraction between Blaine and Flynn, it takes a while for them to act on it. The story of Room 204 builds at an even pace and there were points where I had to rewind, and double check that Blaine had in fact, called Flynn David. The story of Room 204 (that's how I heard it, with a capital R, if that makes sense!) did not play out how I was expecting it to! It's a little . . . fluffier. . . than other books I've read of Michael (Three Wishes) but it is a DreamSpun Beyond and they are generally so. Just enough heat and passion between Blaine and Flynn to keep the heat level high, but not scorching. Right for this book. Kenneth Obi narrates. Mostly, I enjoyed Obi's narration. His reading voice is clear and deep and he got over the emotions of Blaine and Flynn in all the right ways, in all the right places. His voice for the 204 ghost comes across as really REALLY nasty in some places, though, and that is probably why I did not see that ending coming at me.I thought the ghost was going to be a bit more vengeful. And the voices Obi gives to Blaine and Flynn are far too similar for my crappy hearing to make out the difference between them, so I struggled a bit keeping up with conversations between them BUT!!! I will give Obi another go, as this is the first of his work I listened to. 5 stars for the book 4 stars for the narration 4.5 (rounded down to 4) overall **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Paper Ghosts
Paper Ghosts: A Novel of Suspense - Julia Heaberlin

Paper Ghosts started out with a creepy feel to it with our main character posing as a potential serial killer's daughter in order to find out if he killed her sister years before. The back and forth between the characters pulled me in and led me to think I had a riveting psychological thriller to sink my teeth into. Is Carl a serial killer? Does he really suffer from dementia or is he just a great actor hiding behind a facade? Did he kill this young woman's sister or is she on the wrong trail? All of these questions should've kept the suspense level high, but less than a hundred pages in, things become more about our main characters inner musings, and there are a lot of those. Considering the amount of time spent inside this woman's head, I was surprised that we don't learn her real name or what she does in her real life until the end. What I did learn was that she walked into a situation with a much too high opinion of herself and her ability to handle a man with dementia, let alone the possibility of him being a serial killer. We're told a lot about her "trainer" and how much time she's put in to learning to protect herself from Carl should she need to. The problem is that she really didn't know as much as she thought. I will admit that Carl does play some psychological games with our narrator, and those had the potential to be spine-tingling had our oh so prepared main character not been so completely unprepared for handling them. We do get answers to the many questions posed in this story, but too many were a bit too predictable and I never quite warmed up to the main character. I do prefer my mysteries and thrillers to be more edge of your seat, what's gonna happen next type stories and I didn't find that here, so quite possibly, this one just wasn't for me.

Nicholas Sansbury Smith: Hell Diver II Ghosts
Hell Divers: Ghosts (The Hell Divers Trilogy Book 2) - Nicholas Sansbury Smith

You need to read the first book in this series Hell Divers, not only to understand this world, book, premise and history of some of the main characters, but also it is a fantastic read and I highly recommend it.

Nicholas Sansbury Smith is back with the next book in his Hell Divers series, 10 years have passed and it's time for them to return to searching the surface:
Ten years ago, Hell Diver Xavier “X” Rodriguez fell to Earth, and the ship that he used to call home continued on trying to survive. Michael Everheart, who was known a Tin as a boy, has followed in X's and his father's footsteps to become a Hell Diver. While Michael dives to help keep the Hive alive and in the air Captain Leon Jordan now rules at the helm of the ship like a dictator. He has no ideals to return to the surface like the previous Captain did and does everything in his power to promote that the Sky is where they belong. When a mysterious distress call comes from the surface Captain Leon is set on ignoring it, but his iron fist rule is about to be challenged by those who can, The Hell Divers who keep the ship in the air and humanity alive.

The first chapter starts out with a bang and I'm pretty sure I said Holy Fuck a few times out loud as I was reading it. I could not believe the revelations that Sansbury Smith made as well as the pace of the book. The first chapter basically describes the pace and premise of the book. You do not get time to take a breath, so strap in and find a comfortable place to read as you'll be reading this book in one sitting.

I like that this book is placed 10 years in the future from the first. As what happened in the first book there were not any additional characters that really stood out that Snasbury Smith could continue the series right then and there. I like that we get to see a mature Tim and what his father and X did for him as well as the revolution attempt that shaped the man that he has become. Tim has become a great leader for his Hell Divers team Raptor and his will to sacrifice himself for the greater good of not only humanity but for his team members as well. It was also great to see Magnolia back in action as she was kind of a throw in Hell Diver from the first book. She is still pretty much the same character, which is interesting that the 10 years did not really change her at all, but she still adds the defiant one in the group.

It was also interesting to see that the devastation that occurred on Earth affected areas differently. This completely makes sense as I'm sure "Climate" and topography would shape creatures even those that were created when the world went to Shit. This also showed more of Sanasbury Smith's imagination and he was not stuck on just the creatures that he had created for the first novel. Yes they are still there, but this part of Earth has so much more scary things out there.


Honestly, this is one of my favourite series out there right now and is my favourite one that Sansbury Smith has written. The only thing wrong with this book is I now have to wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. Awesome read, and an Awesome series.
Enjoy!!

Norman
Norman: The Doll That Needed to Be Locked Away - Stephen Lancaster

[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley. ]

I’m not sure how to rate this book. When I requested it, I thought it was a horror novel, but then upon looking closer, it was in fact a recounting of actual facts? Problem being that, while I am interested in paranormal phenomenons in a vague, general way, I’m not what you could call a ‘believer’—I’ll read about it, and watch shows etc., but I’m going to be detached from it. And while I’ll appreciate those things for the storyteller factor, for the ideas they give me for stories or pen & paper RPG games, I actually have trouble with suspension of disbelief when they’re -not- novels (yes, strangely as it sounds, I may ‘believe’ in this slightly more if it’s fiction… go figure).

So, do keep that in mind when it comes to my review: I probably wasn’t the right audience for it, at least not at this moment in my life.

I kept wondering why the family had the doll in their bedroom, of all places. I’ve always found dolls creepy AF (whether the ragdoll type or those uncanny-valley ‘looks like a real baby’ dolls), so even for the sake of research, I wouldn’t see myself keeping one in anything else than a closet or the basement. More puzzling is why they’d do that in a house where a teenager lives, where the grandchildren regularly come to visit, and where pets dwell, too. Choosing to endanger yourself for the sake of studying some phenomenon is fine and all, I mean it’s your choice, but bringing your kid and pets into it is… I don’t know, kind of irresponsible. I never got the feeling that Hannah agreed to it, or was thrilled with the idea. And when you see what happened to the cat, well…

The other big problem I had with this book was the amount of errors. Since I got an advanced reader copy, I know (I hope) these may have been corrected in the final, printed version, but in the meantime, they threw me out of the narrative.

This said, even though I’m ever the sceptic, the photos and video captures throughout the book were interesting to have a look at. This is typically the kind of stuff I have to see for myself in order to ‘believe’, of course, so the whole ‘we’re not releasing them because it’s our private home’ won’t convince me. Still, it remained interesting to see.

Conclusion: 2.5 stars.
