"When Gargoyles Rise" by Ashley C. Harris

My Thoughts....

This was an interesting take on an ancient group of gargoyles that will keep your attention all the way through the read. If you are into the supernatural then this is a read for your enjoyment! I liked how this author was able to give us story that starts in the present on to the past and back to the present with a cliffhanger in the present [now what will happen to rose, Sean, Sam and Felix?]. To find out you will have to pick up 'When Gargoyles Rise.'

The Immortal Lover
This incredibly handsome man with versicolored hair is like none other. His capability to enhance a woman; mortal or immortal is what has made him a legend before the creation of our world. He takes love but rarely, sincerely gives it. His hands and lips are sweltering hot but his heart is cold as ice. His heart is unable to be captured for it belongs to another. One he has sought since he lost her.
 
Down through the ages of human history his name has been heard and often feared. He's know by many names; king of hell, demon, destroyer, all which is wrong with the world. But many has known him in a different light. A tender light. He's the legendary lover that legends are made from. Many believe he may had been Casanova, himself or most definitely Don Juan. Some say he's actually Eros. But a few have known for sure and lived to tell the story. Few knows his heavenly name is Azazael. Most knows hm by his terrifying fallen name; which is Azazel.

After his fall from Grace he was thrown into hell. He became the epitome age old adage, "Heaven doesn't want me and hell is afraid I'll take over." For that's exactly what Azazel did. Took over and made himself the king of hell. He ruled the cthulhu realms with a relentless iron fist, he dethroned the lord of darkness and reign supreme for eons upon eons. He built cities, added structure. Turned hell not into a place of punishment if one obeyed him. Hell was no longer a place of punishment as to why heaven puled him out. Hell is supposed to be a place of punishment.

During his diabolical reign, there was one thing his heart never grew cold to and that was the love of his second wife whom he lost before falling from Grace. The severity of his many imprisonments and divine mind erasures have left his mind foggy to what she looked like but he remember her tender love for him. Driving her away has been his only regret.

My Thoughts....

This was a interesting paranormal romance read that had some very interesting characters from Mendesa, Skot, Man, Sha'Lae, Leonie and Ms. Aurora to name a few from the story that will keep you turning the pages. There will be quite a few unanswered questions and secrets with twist and turns that were left from this novel that hopefully we will get in the next part two of this read. Be ready for a insane story that will leave you wanting more.

"When a Stranger Comes" by Karen S. Bell

 

My Thoughts....

 

All I will say is that this author really knows how to keep the reader in suspense in this 'magical realism, paranormal and  supernatural read.  It was quite interesting seeing Alexa Wainwright born [Gladys Lipschitz] as she 'soared to the number one  bestsellers list and became an international sensation.'

 

What will Alexa have to do remain on high as 'she vows to do whatever it takes to attain the heady ego-stroking success of her debut? '  Now this is where this story will take a switch as the character Alexa realizes that 'this vow will be tested as she's magically transported to a alternate reality.'

 

I liked how this author was able to present such a unique magic, paranormal and supernatural read that will keep you on pins and needles taking this read all in.  The characters were all so well developed, portrayed and delivered to the reader. There are a lots of questions that are needed to be answered .... such as ..how will Alexa make it in this world that is so full of loopholes [especially after 'she finds herself in this iron-clad book contract that even changes its wording on her novels?'  All of this happens  after she becomes involved with the publisher King Blakemore... signing a contract Alexa doesn't even remember and why were the people Alexa meets seemed to come right from her novels?  How and why was King Blakemore able to do all the things he was doing to Alexa?  What was Evangelina and Kips play in all of this so important to this read?   Who was in the tale that was truly a big help to Alexa  in understanding her background and why was this so very important in this read? What will happen as Alexa finds herself into a situation she sees no way out of?  What all will come of this reveal as Alexa gets 'a second chance to save herself from eternity with Blakemore and be free?' Now, to finds all of the answers to these questions and so much more in this well written story you will just have to pick up and read "When a Stranger Comes" and see how it is presented and comes out.

 

In the end after being given a second chance will Alexa to get it right this time will she be able to make a more a more sensible choice or will she make the same mistake again by going after the money?  Well, as this story end at least Alexa has someone new in her life...her dog Trinity who definitely seems to care for her especially after coming back to reality[or was it?] and also having her mom and Margaret back in her life after all is said and done.  What was now going on with Alexa's publishing company that had been sold to Blakemore Media head by CEO King Blakemore and the email that was sent saying "Enjoy your second chance. Make wise choices in this rewrite of your life, milaya moyna." Will Alexa be done with her 'Darkside Trilogy?' Again, to know what this story is all about you will have to pick up "When a Stranger Comes" and would definitely recommend as a good read.

 

To the author....Thank you for the privilege of reading your novel and giving my honest review of it.

"Radiance" by Grace Draven

 

 

My Synopsis...

 

What a riveting, good series, fantastic delivered fantasy/paranormal read, amazing beautiful love story, wonderful unique romance, magical, well told story, definitely can be compared to 'The Beauty & the Beast kind of story,' arranged marriage, and in the end one awesomeness entertaining well written read that you will find hard to put down.  So, to get it all you will have to pick up the good read to see for yourself how well this author presents it so well to her readers.

 

I will say this author Grace Draven knows how to give her readers delicious stories being so very exquisite almost with a deft of magic.

 

"An arranged marriage.

An alliance between two kingdoms.

Arranged marriages were the fate of nearly all aristocratic Gauri women, each one made for power, for trade, for good of country.

 

Ildiko.

A young Gauri royal member set of to become a wife to a KAI prince. She's become a duchess, a Kai hercegese. BUT her position as a spare will remain the same.

 

Brishen

A KAI Prince, a younger son.

He never imagined an arranged marriage with a human woman to seal a war and trade alliance between Bast-Hardis and Gaur.

 

what started off as an obligation - where both parties find the other hideous and ugly,

The physical differences between human and Kai were obvious and in some ways, extreme...her acceptance helped her look beyond his startling appearance to the man himself. She'd held tight to that philosophy: see past the surface to the tides below."

 

The characters are simply off the chain...well developed, defined, portrayed and so very believable that will draw the audience in as these two main characters learn to see the beauty in one another day by day.  Now, even those this is somewhat a romantic read but be prepared because there is so much going on [from a little bit of it all...'with the fantasy elements being so unique and intriguing, sensual love scenes, romance, action political intrigueness [machinations, assassination attempts, ancient magics], strange food[from both sides] and let me not leave out that evil person' that will have you shaking your head] so,  you will have to keep up with it all.  I loved how this author presented scenes showing their physical and cultural differences.  I must say I enjoyed the two main characters [Brishen & Ildiko] bantering...with some of it was so very funny that it had me laughing out loud!

 

example....

 

"You find me ugly, don't you?"
"Hideous. A hag of a woman. And you? You don't think me a handsome man?"
"Had you crawled out from under my bed when I was a child, I would have bludgeoned you to death with my father's mace."

 

*falls over laughing*

 

And also so lovingly....

 

Woman of the day, he said slowly.  You mean everything to me.

 

Oh Breshin.

 

So, if you are looking for a wonderful unique fantasy phenomenal romance with a little bit of magic with quarreling kingdoms also with a little bit of a cliffhanger that will take the reader into the next series "Eidolon: Wraith Kings, Book 2" then I would definitely recommend "Radiance" to you as a excellent read.
