Gentry
Gentry (Wolves of Winter's Edge Book 1) - T. S. Joyce

Good cast of characters with a new take on shifters. Definitely moving to book 2 of the series because i just want to see Gentry (hero of this installment) get his revenge.

Book Review: Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong
Industrial Magic - Kelley Armstrong

While I am usually very strict about only reading series in order, for some reason, I’ve skipped around in this one a lot. Maybe because different books are from different perspectives? Anyway, I picked this up after being away from this series for a while, so it took me a bit to figure out exactly where I was in each character’s storylines. Having already read sequels, I must say it was way too much fun meeting Jaime the necromancer for the first time. Her first impression is as ridiculous and wonderful as I wanted it.

 

This book is a fun mystery/thriller with supernatural aspects involved, and of course, it includes all of our favorite characters from the Otherworld series; I love that the werewolves make an appearance in this novel. (Since the series started with Elena, I have a feeling that she and Clay will always be my ultimate favorites.) But I really would recommend this book for thriller lovers, I kept referring to it as the “supernatural serial killer” novel I was reading, and it fits so perfectly. Basically, Paige and Lucas agree to help the Cabals (supernatural mafia-like groups) to help find the person who’s been killing teenagers of Cabal employees. It follows the typical thriller-style of stories where they think they have the whole thing solved, but it turns out that they were missing a couple pieces of the puzzle, which makes for an interesting, surprising read.

 

The serial killer stuff was great, but my favorite development for the series as a whole was getting to see Paige and Lucas’s relationship develop. They’re finally talking about the important things and finally start admitting that things are serious with each other, which creates for some fun situations and some hilarious conversations/jokes about how they’d run their own Cabal if they were really able to be in charge.

 

Overall, it’s a solid addition to the series, which I really do believe is a must-read for supernatural fans (the genre, not necessarily the show). I love that while we were introduced to a new character or two, for the most part, this novel just worked on developing the relationships between characters we already know. Genuinely enjoyed every minute of reading this.

She’s fated to break his curse. He’s destined to kill her.

 

CURSED
With his clan trapped and starving, vampire Andrei Vladimir will stop at nothing to save them. But an ancient curse compels him to waste precious time hunting the vile creatures he creates every time he feeds. With the clock ticking, he weaves a trap to lure the fated female who can save them all.

 

FATED
Sonia Covaci doesn’t believe her grandmother’s visions of the future. But when a purchased trinket brings dreams of a mysterious stranger, her small town American life threatens to spin out of control. Sensing he is in danger, she does the unthinkable and boards a plane for Romania.

 

Sonia follows her fate. Andrei moves in for the sacrifice. Never did he imagine the female destined to break the curse would become the woman he couldn’t afford to lose.

Passion Awakened was an enchanting debut in the Beyond The Mist series by Valerie Twombly.

 

A King cursed and unable to return home. A woman who doesn’t believe in her gypsy heritage.

 

Once I started, I couldn’t stop. The story is quick and the mating is insta. Andrei and Sonia were a great couple. The curse he is under is to fold and what must be done to break the curse is, heartbreaking and hopeful. I enjoyed the few surprise that we are treated to throughout the story.

 

The secondary characters where a delight. I liked Karenina. She is the witch that helps bring Andrei and Sonia together. Her story is a bit sad and who knows maybe she will find her special someone. We are also introduced to a few other men from the mist and get to see this other world.

 

I will say a few things felt repetitive. For one we have he witch telling Andrei a story, Andrei in turn tells Roman his friend the story, then the witch tells Sonia the same story who shares it with her grandmother. You get the picture. Even though we get a little repetitive I still enjoyed jumping into the Beyond The Mist series.

 

Passion Awakened treats us to a curse, heartbreak, and hope. If you enjoy Vampires and stories that take you on an emotional journey then this book is possibility for you. I had a wonderful time and look forward to the next installment.

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Enjoy the Free Prequel for Tears of Crimson

Before Tears of Crimson, there was Rafael.  Fans of The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, and Twilight get ready for the world that will leave your soul longing.

 

Her soul called to me in desperation and in my darkness, I found light once more.  Tempted by her innocence, I vowed not to destroy her even though everything I am demanded she be mine. Her blood, her body, and the call of her soul tormented and delighted my senses. Would I be strong enough to deny fate or could my Cara become another victim of my wickedness?

 

I was cursed to walk through this human world, living on the blood of those I’d once promised to protect.  Cloaked in secrecy, veiled in deceit, our race was the basis for monsters and myth.  Vampire, werewolf, witch, incubus, and other forms of supernatural.  The truth was much darker than they could imagine.  Drawn to the one thing we no longer possessed, purity, we had the power to destroy them all.

 

My sweet beautiful human wanted me to be her salvation.  If she only knew I was death waiting to consume all she offered, Cara would have run from the dreams instead of begging me to make them real.  She is my punishment, a test from the heavens and I know I’ll fail.  Eternal love or damnation, what choice was that to offer her soul?

Do you love fairytales? Well, The Black Lily puts a new spin on an old classic. Cinderella got turned on its head in the best way possible. The author has done a sublime job recreating on an old classic and adding her own unique spin. 

 

Arabella is a tough woman, who has not had an easy life. She’s fearless and courageous. Instead of giving in, she has planned and vowed to change the status quo. Then there’s Marius, our vampire prince and alpha hero who goes on the hunt for the woman who tried to kill him. Not because she tried to kill him, but because he wants more of the passion he found in their first kiss. The chemistry between these two was a sweet slow build and smoldering hot.

 

This story is rich in secondary characters. They were all exquisite, unique, well developed, and promise many opportunities for future books. I enjoyed all that were introduced and look forward to see how things develop and where they go. 

 

OMG, the prologue is just gripping. It opens us up to what the world is like and how Vampires rule. The story is enchanting and memorable. I was on the edge of my set and couldn’t put The Black Lily down. The characters are fascinating, alluring, and gripping. The world building is outstanding, the story is well written, riveting and awe-inspiring. We are treated to a little mystery, action, adventure, heartache, and romance. 

 

Truly, this is going to be a fantastic new series! Yes, it’s built on old fairy tales, but don’t let that fool you into thinking you will know how things end. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

 

Rated: 4.5 Stars
