Review: The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic by Luis Robles
The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic - Luis Robles

The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic is the first book in the two book series The Gates of Oblivion by Luis Robles. This is the story of Bliss, the last Child of Power.

Plot 4/5: I thought the plot was interesting.
Characters 4/5: I loved Bliss and Pah.
World building 3/5: I thought the world building could have used a bit more detail.
Pacing 4/5: The pacing was steady with spurts of action.
Writing 2/5: This book has a lot of potential, though I feel this book could have used better editing.

Overall 3.4

Purchased from Amazon.

New Release Review! (Chasing Dove (Branches of Emrys #4) Brandy L. Rivers!
Chasing Dove - Brandy L. Rivers

 

 

Secrets buried in the past will guide the way.

After solving the riddles of her father’s journal, Jacinda has finally found what she was looking for—and something she didn’t expect—love. With nightmares plaguing her, she runs away to protect the man who claimed her heart.

Unable to let her go, Chatan follows Jacinda, determined to prove she needs help. And not just his. She has more family than she believes, and they have the means and willingness to help stop Thanatos.

Chatan has to convince her running isn’t the answer while uncovering the deep secrets of the relics she's found, and how she can use them to stop Thanatos.

To finally free her from the past, they will have to discover dark pieces of their families’ history. Their destiny is entwined with a prophecy, an ancient war, and each other. What side will they choose?

 

 

Awesome! Chasing Dove, the conclusion to Jacinda and Chatan’s story, whom I met in Finding Hawk, is just as exciting as the beginning. In this half of the story, I was reunited with lots of the characters from Edenton and from the Branches of Emrys as well as introduced to new characters and even another fascinating place of magic called Pine Valley.

 

Chasing Dove is full of excitement, emotional turmoil, danger and of course the sweet and passionate romance between Jacinda and Chatan. Their romance is proving to be a very strong draw with a heartfelt and fulfilling attraction that readers can’t help but cheer them on to their very deserving happily ever after while they are discovering secrets from their pasts and discovering that their destiny is connected to a prophecy and an ancient war. There is never a dull moment to be found in this very thrilling story which has a kind of adventure feel to it as they travel to different places and rifts during their journey to discover how to defeat Jacinda’s lifelong enemy before he can become even stronger which adds a bit of urgency to the story as well ensuring that the readers stay on the edge of their seats throughout.

 

Brandy L. Rivers has such a gift for creating wonderful, exciting stories and her world of Others just continues to fascinate me and her characters are well developed and easily connected to and I can’t help but fall for each and every one. I love visiting each of the three series, Others of Edenton, Others of Seattle and the Branches of Emrys and I certainly can’t wait to visit some more and to discover even more magical places with fascinating and new characters is such an awesome addition to these worlds because that means that there is more possibilities for stories.

Review! Crossroads of Bones (Katie Bishop Series #1) Luanne Bennett!
Crossroads of Bones - Luanne Bennett

 

 

Katie Bishop would have taken her secret to the grave, but . . .
a bunch of fat cat society folks smelled her out and made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

 

Katie just wants to run her tattoo business quietly under the radar. But when a man walks into her shop and hands her a drawing of the same tattoo she's been dreaming about for weeks, things start to spin out of control. The last two people who tried to apply that tattoo are dead.

 

Only half human, it's her other half that an elite group wants to hire-a group of Savannah's more privileged citizens, including the city's reigning coven of witches.

 

There's a rogue god on the loose, and Katie is the only one who can send him back to hell before he breaks open the crossroads and lets the underworld waltz right in-if he manages to get that deadly tattoo inked onto his back.

 

 

I just found a new urban fantasy series – Katie Bishop Series - that is full of some unique beings and the first book in the series –Crossroads of Bones is a fascinating story that caught my attention and made sure that I want to read more Katie Bishop adventures.

 

Katie Bishop is a strong, charismatic character that has some unique elements that make her a bit different from other dragon shifters and her tough girl personality and her past makes her vulnerable to a threat that she didn’t see coming and has brought her to the attention of the council. There is a quite a bit of some steamy and sexy love scenes and a hot and sexy biker that has some unique qualities of his own. All the characters in the story are strong and all of them have their own quirks that make them fun and intriguing characters that easily draw readers in and ensure that readers want to know more.

 

The steady to fast paced plot keeps readers glued to the pages with lots of intrigue, thrills and surprising twists that keep the readers guessing and very curious as to just what will happen next and wondering how Katie will get out of the fix she finds herself in. It’s not non-stop action but has quite a bit of exciting events and the characters provide a lot of fascinating input to the story, although the story is a little choppy, not sure why I felt that way, but it wasn’t enough to distract from the interesting story line.

 

It seems that the next story Blackthorn Grove has been released so I will be adding to my TBR pile as soon as possible to find out just what happens next especially as Katie got some important information regarding what she is at the end of this one.

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews $1.99
Magic Bites - Ilona Andrews

When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.
 
Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta’s magic circles.
 
The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate’s guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she’s way out of her league—but she wouldn’t have it any other way...

Release Day Review! Vampire’s Faith (Dark Protectors #8) Rebecca Zanetti!
Vampire's Faith - Rebecca Zanetti

 

 

The Dark Protectors are Back!

 

Vampire King Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.

 

Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.
 
“Hot and fast from beginning to end.”
—Kate Douglas on Fated
  
“Sizzling sex scenes and a memorable cast.”
—Publishers Weekly on Claimed
  
“A fast-paced, excitement-filled explosion of action… Zanetti keeps getting better.”
—RT Book Reviews on Marked, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

 


Hot Diggity Vampire! The Dark Protectors are back and their fiery new book, Vampire’s Faith, rocked my world and introduced to me more yummy protectors.

Ronan and Faith are two very strong and captivating characters that burn with electrifying chemistry that easily draw readers in and ensures that they never want to leave. I felt connected to these two characters as they worked out their very turbulent romance that is full of emotion, snarky dialogue and full steam ahead passion as they came together and clashed in all time “War of the Roses” type battlefield romance.

 

This fast paced plot kept me on a roller coaster ride of explosive action, thrilling suspense, and of course the very rocky romance. The bad guys have new allies and they are definitely up to as much as evil as they can do while the Seven are the newest good guys that are all about stopping that evil in any way possible, which might not sit well with the rest of the realm, so there is never a dull moment to be found during all of the life and death exploits that take place. In another twist, Garrett and Logan find themselves caught up in the Seven’s secret plans to fulfill a prophecy which adds even more thrills and suspense to the story.

 

Rebecca Zanetti never fails to provide me with vivid, exciting and fascinating world full of fantastic characters that I can’t help but love so her worlds are some of my favorite ones to visit so it shouldn’t come to a surprise when I tell you that she has added a whole new dimension to the Dark Protectors world with this new twist in the series and I can’t wait to get to know the rest of these dark and sexy new warriors better.
