ARC review: SAVED BY DARKNESS by Katie Reus (4 out of 5 stars)
Saved by Darkness (Darkness Series) (Volume 6) - Katie Reus

I don’t know what it is about this author’s shifters and demons but I just cannot get enough of them. They are your typical possessive, growling, super sexy sort of supernaturals however the way they are depicted and the voice the author gives them makes all the difference.
Ian and Fiona are both dragon shifters who had to part ways a while ago because her family didn’t approve of their relationship. Cut 50 years later and they get to reunite only to have their time together shortened by evil forces beyond their control.

Like I said, Ian and Fiona are pretty much typical in the sense of that they are alpha by nature but when it came down to do what was right for everyone they were both wiling to relent power for the greater good. That’s another thing I liked about the story; the author was able to tell a believable story where there already was one true leader in the series however she managed to include other alpha characters without stripping power away from the Alpha of the whole pack.
Another favorite part of mine was that we spent more time with old characters and we finally got to meet the “sperm donor” of the half-demon siblings, which by the way are kind of my favorite characters of the whole pack.
All in all I thought it was a great story and I cannot wait to see who the next couple in the series will be. 4 stars.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Greer's Alphas by Roxy Wilson
Greer's Alphas - Roxy Wilson
Greer's Alphas is a fast-paced and action packed novella, that tells the story of a doctor who is attacked by a wolf, and becomes a shifter. The trouble with this novella is that it is TOO much! Now I never thought I would say that, but there it is. Novellas are notoriously fast-paced, trying to fit in a book within fewer pages. However, with this one, everything goes by too quickly. She is bitten, sudden lust to someone she has always despised although she appreciated his 'beauty', and thrust into a whole new world. Now throw in more attraction to an Alpha that she doesn't like, threats from a female member of the Pack, mad scientists experimenting on shifters, cats vs. dogs, shadow shifters, literally - it's all going on!!! 
 
This story would make a fantastic full length novel, giving the story and characters time to develop. However, for me, as a novella, it is just too fast with no real development with either the characters or the situations.

Wraithborn
Wraithborn - Marcia Chen,Joe Benitez

[I received an e-copy of this comics through NetGalley.]

This first volume collects issues 1 to 6 of the 'Redux edition. Most of the book is actually a flashback (explaing what led to the events of the first pages), but reads as a full story nonetheless. It introduces us to the main characters of 'Wraithborn', starting with Melanie, a normal and shy teenager who only wants to go through high school life relatively unscathed and unbullied, and thus does her best to remain invisible and not attracted unwanted attention. Only that's what she does when she accidentally receives the power of the Wraithborn, intended for another, and finds herself pursued by an antagonist who wants nothing more than this power for herself.

I found the art in general fairly good, with dynamic action scenes and vibrant colours, although (as often in such cases) the women's clothing is nothing too practical, and Melanie's features seemed maybe too... mature? Including when she's still a clueless teenager. So at first I thought she was more like 25 instead of 15, which felt a bit weird.

Some characters were likeable, like Zoe, with her weird fashion sense and the way she helps Melanie. Mel herself was more subdued, so it took me more time to warm up to her. Val... well, I still kind of wonder if he's going to tell Mel the truth, or if he'll do the not-so-nice thing. Could go either way. He didn't act like the vindicative, jealous type he could've been, all circumstances considered, so bonus point.

The story itself was interesting enough, albeit not too original compared to other works with similar themes. The villains are ruthless, the heroes may or may not be set up for betrayal later by those they trust most, and there's the lingering mystery of why the original 'carrier' of the Wraithborn was outside, instead of preparing for the ceremony (and therefore had to give his power to the first passer-by who happened to be around): either there's something fishy here or it was a plot hole, and I really hope it's the former... but, of course, this is the kind of information that is likely to be revealed only later.

Conclusion: I may pick the next volume in ebook, but probably not in paper version.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Animus (Sinful Supes) by Xandrie Kovak
Animus: A Sinful Supes Story - Xandrie Kovak
In Animus we learn about how Lucas came to take over the Red Crescent Pack. For a novella, this book is jam-packed full of information, characters, and situations, that all help to give you a full idea of Lucas Masters! This is an amazing story, well written, with no editing or grammatical errors, and unlike other shifter books. There is a depth, a meaning, to this and you will grieve for Lucas as  you learn about his Pack. With well rounded and described characters that you will love or loathe, this is a novella to savour. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a prequel novella to The Fervor. Brilliant!
