Early Review! Gifted (The Dark Forgotten #4.5) Sharon Ashwood!

 

Who says the holiday season is just for humans?

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.


No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays.

 


No matter who – or what – you are, this Dark Forgotten holiday special is heartwarming and thrilling! As the strong, vivid characters prepare for the holidays while dealing with a demonic threat. Lots of holiday cheer, and sweet romance entertains readers while spine chilling suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seat. The idea of something good coming out something demonic inspires readers as a variety of characters discover holiday miracles make everything worthwhile even having to banish a sparkly demonic threat and battling holiday crowds. Readers can’t help but enjoy this fresh perspective of fanged and furry, magical and innocent characters take on the holidays while also getting to catch up on the lives of all the Dark Forgotten characters.

Review! Ravenous (The Dark Forgotten #1) Sharon Ashwood!

 

 

One kiss is all it takes to lose your soul…Holly Carver is a small-time witch who busts ghosts for tuition money, but ends up wrangling a demon when a haunted house job goes bad. Her Undead business associate, Alessandro Caravelli, suspects the demon is somebody’s not-so-secret weapon. The supernatural community is at war, and Holly’s unpredictable magic holds the key to hell’s doorway. Soon Holly is on everyone’s “must have” list, and not in a good way.


Alessandro wants her for more than magic. A lover with six centuries of experience, the vampire is walking seduction, but he’s also a predator. Every moment he spends guarding Holly, every second he spends falling under her witch’s spell, he becomes more and more of a threat himself. As Holly’s sharp-tongued grandma warns her: vampires are like a box of rich chocolate—they seem so tempting, but over-indulgence is a killer…


Second edition. Previously published in 2009 by Signet Eclipse

 

 


One kiss is all it takes to lose your soul… in this thrilling paranormal world. Holly who is a small town witch and Alessandro, her vampire partner, are two solid and captivating characters that grab readers’ attention from the beginning and refuse to let go. Their relationship is full of turmoil both emotional and physical with sizzling chemistry as they fight their attraction while Alessandro tries to keep Holly safe from everyone that wants a piece of her. The romance between Holly and Alessandro is intense and one that dreams are made of as they discover that maybe their differences aren’t so far apart as they thought and just maybe a witch and a vampire can have a happily ever after.

 

The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers glued to the pages with lots of thrilling events full of danger and suspense as the supernatural community faces a war brought on by quite a few characters all with different plans in mind and surprising twists keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next. The author brought her well-developed and fascinating world to vivid life with well written words that makes it easy for the readers to picture each and every scene while using some unique and fascinating elements to make the story a bit different from others and I am certainly looking forward to reading more of this mesmerizing series.

Review: Must Love Hellhounds (Guild Hunter #0.5, Kate Daniels #3.5, & The Guardians #5.5) by Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews & Meljean Brook
Must Love Hellhounds - Charlaine Harris,Ilona Andrews,Nalini Singh, Meljean Brook

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Must Love Hellhounds 

 Guild Hunter #0.5, Kate Daniels #3.5, & The Guardians #5.5  
Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews & Meljean Brook  
 Urban Fantasy - Paranormal Romance  
 Berkley  
 September 1st 2009  
 eBook/Paperback  
 361  
 Library  
 

 

From New York Times bestselling authors Charlaine Harris and Nalini Singh and national bestselling authors Ilona Andrews and Meljean Brook, tales of man’s worst friend...

 

In these hound-eat-hound worlds, anything goes… and everything bites. 

 

Follow paranormal bodyguards Clovache and Batanya into Lucifer’s realm, where they encounter his fearsome four-legged pets, in Charlaine Harris’s The Britlingens Go to Hell. Seek out a traitor in the midst of a guild of non-lethal vampire trackers, one that intends to eradicate the entire species of bloodsuckers, in Nalini Singh’s Angels’ Judgment. Find out why the giant three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades has left the underworld for the real world—and whose scent he’s following—in Ilona Andrews’s Magic Mourns. Embark on a perilous search for the kidnapped niece of a powerful vampire alongside her blind—and damn sexy—companion and a hellhound in Meljean Brook’s Blind Spot. 

 

These four novellas by today’s hottest paranormal authors will have hellhound lovers everywhere howling.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Kobo

Book Depository

 

 

Must Love Hellhounds was interesting and each novella featured a hellhound in someway. I have previously read Angel’s Judgement in Angels’ Flight and I re-read Magic Mourns. The Britlingens Go to Hell and Blind Spot where new novellas for me.

 

I like to pick up these type of books from the library. They give you a chance to try new authors and find new series to read. I enjoyed this anthology.

 

The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris – Rated: 3 Stars

 

I enjoyed this story, but I felt like I was missing something. I don’t think The Britlingens Go to Hell is part of a series and I felt like it needed to be. It was a little weird; especially since we don’t get enough backstory or world building. Their is a lot of action and no romance or sex in this novella. As for the hellhounds they play a minor role. I enjoyed them, but wish they played a bigger role and helped the little group in other ways.

 

Over all The Britlingens Go to Hell was enjoyable to read. 

 

 

Angels’ Judgement (Guild Hunter #0.5) by Nalini Singh – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Read as part of Angels’ Flight

 

This one we get Sara Haziz’s story. She is a human-born Guild Hunter who later becomes the Guild Director for America. Before she becomes the Director she is sent on a mission and tested by the Archangel’s – The Cadre. But, she’s not alone. Yummy, Deacon is at her side. He’s their to offer protection and to help Sarah on her mission.

 

It’s action-packed and gritty. I loved every moment of it. They are hunting one of their own, a Guild Hunter who may or may not have gone off the deep end. Sarah uses her mind along with her crossbow to her advantage. Deacon was amazing. He does his job well, but he can also be light and funny. The chemistry was off the charts with these two and those love scenes, steamy.

 

Angels’ Judgement was a treat. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Deacon become lovers. This novella was perfect. Their is action, danger, blood, and romance.

 

 

Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Previously read as a single title

 

I re-read Magic Mourns. I just LOVE the Kate Daniels series.

 

Magic Mourns can be read as a standalone title or part of the series. The Andrews team does a fabulous job giving you all the pertinent information about the world that you need to enjoy this novella.

 

Andrea Nash, works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid and she’s also a Beastkin, but that’s a secret only a few know about. She’s a kick-ass women who loves her guns. I love Andrea. She is such a wonderful character and a great friend to Kate Daniels.

 

Raphael is a werehyena and bouda to the hyena clan. He’s been trying for 6 months to get Andrea to give him a try.

 

We are treated to Andra’s POV. Where this novella starts Andrea is filling in for Kate who’s on medical leave. A call comes in about a big dog chasing a shapeshifter and so she goes out to investigate. What she finds is Raphael being chased by “the coolest thing ever, a twenty foot tall three headed dog.”

 

It’s was nice to see Andrea loosen up a bit. It was also nice to see Raphael not give up and wear her down. These two have such a fun flirtatious banter between them in this novella and their romance explodes once they give into their desires and decide it’s ok to give a relationship a try.

 

This story is full of action, world building, mystery, mythology, and exciting characters. The world they live in is an uncertain one and Magic comes and goes as it pleases. 

 

Magic Mourns is a fabulous read.

 

 

Blind Spot (The Guardians #5.5) by Meljean Brook – Rated: 4 Stars

 

I’ve only read one other novella in this series and have yet to try out The Guardians series.

 

Blind Spot features Maggie as she tracks Colin’s, (her employer), kidnapped niece and retrieves Blake, Colin’s nephew. I found Blake aka Geoff interesting. He’s blind, but with a special ability. Maggie is pretty kick-ass. These two ended up working together and in the process start to develop a more then working relationship.

 

The hellhound, Sir Pup, was a great addition. He doesn’t talk, but you can tell by his actions he understands whats going on and has a sense of humor. I found him to be enjoyable.

 

The world is interesting and has peeked my interesting in checking out the series. Blind Spot was an enjoyable novella.

MUST LOVE HELLHOUNDS by CHARLAINE HARIS, NALINI SINGH, ILONA ANDREWS AND MELJEAN BROOK
Must Love Hellhounds - Charlaine Harris,Ilona Andrews,Nalini Singh, Meljean Brook
Anthology The average is 4.67 which is really, really good for an anthology. I did not use the Nalini Singh book to come up with this average. I think this is like the 2nd anthology I've read that had this high of a rating.

1. The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris. Super good book/story about warriors from another planet and the client they are commissioned to help. This author does sci-fi really well and should think about doing more because I enjoyed it immensely. 5 stars.

2. Angels' Judgment by Nalini Singh I cannot read anything about angels that's not the Bible. So didn't read, cannot rate.

3. Magic Mourns by Ilona Andrews. Great story about Andrea and Raphael and how they became a couple. Also a little about Kate's apple pie she made for Curran. Loved it. 5 stars

4. Blind Spot by Meljean Brook. I've not read this series but this short story makes me want to read it from this book forward, maybe. I need to find out if Maggie and Geoff are in the rest of the series. Good story. Loved Sir Pup. 4 stars.

Must Love Hellhounds (Sookie Stackhouse, #9.2; Guild Hunter, #0.5; Kate Daniels, #3.5; The Guardians, #5.5) - Meljean Brook,Ilona Andrews,Nalini Singh,Charlaine Harris

That finish date should have a question mark as I honestly don't know when I finished this. Last weekend for sure.

 

The tale at the beginning - by Charlaine Harris - was weird in an interesting way.

 

Am not familiar with Singh's Archangels series, but it sounds promising.

 

Found the Ilona Andrews entry (the reason i'm reading it at the moment) vastly entertaining

 

And Meljean Brook's entry was intriguing as well.
