Devil's Gate

 

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

 

Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more personal reasons, doesn't hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil's Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.

 

In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil's Gate alive.

 

Hunter's Season

 

As a palace guard and assassin for the Dark Fae, Xanthe always wore a mask, hiding her emotions to do her duty. But when her identity is compromised, she trades undercover work for guarding Queen Niniane - a position that often brings her in contact with Chancellor Aubrey Riordan. Aubrey's trust is shattered. A year ago his wife tried to assassinate their new queen in his name, a betrayal of everything he believes in. And now an attack on his life is proof the dark conspiracy is not yet over. Although injured and weak, Aubrey can't help but be drawn to this shy assassin and loyal protector. Xanthe is everything Naida wasn't, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.

I read Devil’s Gate & Hunter’s Season when they where first published and loved both. I’ve been on an audiobook kick and decided to try out Ms. Harrison’s Elder Races series in Audio.

 

Destiny’s Tarot has the Elder Races Novellas Devil’s Gate #4.6 & Hunter’s Season #4.7 on it. Here we get to see some previously introduced characters that we meet in the Elder Races series. Even if you haven’t read anElder Races book you can still pick up these novellas, but I would recommend at least reading Books 1 & 2, so you can have a better sense of what is going on in the world. These novellas featured in Destiny’s Tarot are fun, entertaining, and each have an HEA.

 

Below is my review for Devil’s Gate & Hunter’s Season:

 

Devil’s Gate

 

Devil’s Gate features Seremela a Medusa and Duncan a Vampyre. These characters are secondary characters introduced somewhere along the line in the Elder Race series.

 

As for the story, their is no shortage of action, adventure, and danger. The romance is sweet between these two and their is some major sexual tension that will combust by the end. I also have to point out that when we think of Medusa we don’t think nice creatures, so I have to say I like how the author portrayed her Medusa’s. They weren’t creepy, but came of different and noteworthy.

 

Narrator: Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job with the voices and bringing out the danger and attraction; between Seremela and Duncan. I will say Duncan’s voice was ok, not unpleasant, just a little to raspy for my liking and what I pictured him sounding like, but this didn’t deter me from enjoying this novella again.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

*****

 

Hunter’s Season

 

Hunter’s Season features Xanthe a Dark Fae Assassin and Aubrey a Dark Fae Chancellor. These characters are secondary characters introduced in the Elder Race series. We meet Xanthe in Devil’s Gate and Aubrey in Storm’s Heart. These two come together to create a lovely and passionate romance.

 

This novella was sensational with a heavenly HEA. Ms. Harrison delivers a beautiful blossoming romance; between two very different characters. Their romance builds slowly, is sweet, and adorable. I love how the author put so much attention on their romance.

 

I adored Hunter’s Season. The conclusion was satisfying, the romance is charming, and we get a little danger and intrigue too. Harrison shows us just how much love can truly heal.

 

Narrator: I enjoyed the audio narration for Hunter’s Season. Sophie Eastlake did a superb job with the voices and bring out the blossoming romance between Xanthe and Aubrey.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

The Elder Race series brings us a verity of unique supernaturals, worlds, and so much more. It’s an entering series to read or listen too. I highly recommend diving in.

Review:

"The Fist That Bound Me" by Trinity Dekane

My Thoughts...

What a well written story with so much sadness and emotional pain that dealt with such domestic abusive violence that happened to these girls [Jade, Corrina, Telissa & Dee] that many have gone through. How they made it through it was really a horrible story. I still wish Jade would have told her mother on just what was going on with her father. But oh well this happens and naturally Jade would end up with someone like Greg who used 'his badge for all the wrong reasons.' However, thank God Malcolm comes into the picture and to learn the rest of the story you will have to pick up this phenomenal good read to see who well this author brings out this journey all out to the reader. I found this story a very realistic one and that ending was really something!

I love what the author also presents to the readers concerning this subject matter at the end of the read. Would I recommend this novel? YES!

This title was previously published and is being rereleased by the author. It has not been revised.

 

Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.

 

Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she’s just stumbled upon the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.

 

But the intense connection Riehl and Alice feel is further complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again.

 

And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.

True Colors is #3.5 in the Elder Races series.

 

I’ve previously read True Colors when it first came out on 2011. It has been republished with a new cover, but the content is still the same.

 

I really like the Elder Races series and anything that is published I devour with great relish.

 

Ms. Harrsion has created a fun and unique world. With a verity of supernaturals. This novel is short, to the point, and gives you just a taste of what she has created. Their’s danger, romance, and passion. Both characters are likable. It’s an insta-love romance. They both know they are mates and so they hit it off right away. The murder mystery was nice, but wrapped up rather fast and without a big explosion.

 

I enjoyed this novel, but I wish their was more.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Review: Defending Rebecca by A. K Bruinn
Defending Rebecca: a novella - A. K. Bruinn,M. John Harrison

Self-published (6th March 2017)

 

Source: Author

 

ISBN: 978-1520774275

 

Synopsis:

This is the true story (with a little fiction thrown in) of how hiring a Finnish au pair as part of a reality show wreaked havovc on Emma's quiet family life in Vancouver. All she wanted was a little help with her kids...

 

Review:

The idea behind Defending Rebecca caught my attention as I love stories with some truth behind them, and the idea of an au pair and a film crew had endless possibilities for disaster! I really like Emma. She came across as such a warm and generous person. She seemed to have a genuine reason for wanting to take part in the programme in the first place, to have an au pair to help her with the children. She seemed to really want to like Rebecca too. She seemed to be pushed and pulled this way and that by all the people in her life and I felt a bit sorry for her.

Rebecca is an odd character. I really couldn't work her out, which I secretly like.

The children are brilliant characters, especially Ryland.

I like the way the story flows and the character interaction is great. It feels natural and the amount of observation is fantastic. This novella is funny in places, and at the end of the story I was left wanting to read more.

Yippee ki-yay! This is just fun.
A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic - Doogie Horner,JJ Harrison

This is going to be short and sweet. The premise: Take <b>Die Hard</b> one of the greatest action films ever made, one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made, and an all-around pop culture touchstone and turn it into a (<i><b>NOT</b></i> for kids) rhyming picture book.

 

I'm not sure I really need to say more, do I?

 

Horner does an admirable job with taking the flick and turning it into a series of rhymes -- it doesn't feel like a gimmick. A lot of what he doesn't grab, Harrison takes care of in the illustrations. It's not perfect, things are left out, but with only 32 pages -- you pretty much have to. Only 1 four-letter word, too (technically, 12 letters, but you get the point).

 

The art is great -- although you could make the case that Harrison gave McClane too much hair. The art is dynamic, you can feel the action, the characters all look just right. Some samples of the illustrations are <a href="http://jjwharrison.com/projects/a-die-hard-christmas/" target="_blank">here on Harrison's site</a>.

 

One complaint? No Argyle. Which I guess makes sense given the limited space, but man . . .

This is a hoot -- yeah, a novelty book, but well executed and well worth a read. Something to bring out every December (if you're the type to do that).
