"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.

My Thoughts.....

 

I will say it took me a minute to get into this read but after continuing on I will say I did enjoy it this paranormal read that dealt with 'Scottish Demons and Devils.'  This novel has a lots of characters from Garth, Gabriel, Leslie, Lachlan, Magnus, Sasha, Dominic, Slaine, Urel, Dracula, Roy Kirstin, Muireall, Charming, Danny, Derek, Rebecca, Lazar, Mrs. Banks, Becca, Agent Jay Darkhurt, James, Erika to Issy...and I am sure I have out a few that will definitely keep you turning the pages to see how this author presents this 'Highlander' story so well to the reader.  I will end saying the reader will be left wanting much more of this action packed story. I guess we will have to get this next novel 'Highlander Hellcat Revolution' to see  how the rest of this story will turn out for Garth and Sasha.

My Thoughts....

 

This story continues on from 'Highlander Hellcat" which featured Garth [Scarface, Highlander Hellcat]and Sasha[scientist & veterinarian]. Be ready for some very interesting group of characters from Garth, Sasha, Nerezza, Luco, Gabriel, Danny, Jared, Bowie, Zion, Mr. Emcee, Father Rory, Sister, IIaria, Iona,  Father Marco, Lachlan, Jedite, Greg, Leslie, Levi, Vivien, Tristan, Slaine, Issy, Clyde, to Malakye to name a few that will keep this story going of the 'Highlander Hellcat Revolution' which was so very well written by this author.

 

There is so much action in the novel that you will have to keep up. Will the 'Black Dragon Clan' be able to 'open a portal powerful enough to let Lucifer and his army of demons through to take over the Earth and enslave humanity?

 

 By the end the reader will be given the rest of this story of how, what, who and the where to it all.  I did enjoy seeing how well this author was able to put the story together giving the reader a wonderful good read after all was said and done.  So, will Garth and Sasha finally get their HEA?  Well, you will just have to pick up "Highlander Hellcat Revolution" to see how well this author presents it to the reader.

Violet Abyss

"Violet Abyss" by Suzanne M. Sabol

 

My Thoughts...

 

'Violet Abyss' was the seventh in the series:  A Blushing Death that will definitely present its title.

 

We find Dahlia Sabin has lived quite a 'lonely existence as a killer of the undead know as "The Blushing Death." This author gives the reader quite a interesting read as Dahlia  becomes very involved in the 'middle of  vampire conclave.'  What will happen when the 'vampire liege' comes to New Orleans?  This will be quite a interesting read however, I did find that the read will be so much more understood if you have read the other six in this series....Book one...A Pool of Crimson, Book 2 Midnight Ash, Book 3 Silver of Silver, Book 4 Golden Anidae, Book 5 Black Dalliances, Book 6 Emerald Fire and this one Book 7 A Blushing Death where the reader finds there will be a lots of action going on[in all of these series].  Will Dahlia, Patrick and Dean be able to get back this 'ancient relic of power' and save their friend Everett?  This read will show how  these three who were more than friends as they 'must use everything in their arsenal to turn the tide of revolution, and turning enemies into allies is more difficult and dangerous than any of them knew.'  Would I recommend 'Violet Abyss?'  Yes, but I would also recommend reading Books 1-6  before reading book 7 for a better understanding of what all  has all gone on earlier in this action packed story of humans, werewolves and vampires.

"When Ash Remains" by Dena Garson 

 

My Thoughts...

 

 

What a story that will definitely takes one on a quite a journey that comes together so well as a good  'Native American' historical paranormal romance story.  This author really works her magic in giving the reader as story of Ahyoka and Kajika which their destiny that brought them together. We find Kajika is a alpha warrior who found Ahyoka who was a 'Spirit Talker' while he was on the hunt of a killer of his cousin and family. These two were very for the most part opposites but made up for it as they complimented each other in others ways. I liked how this author brings out the 'spiritual magic' to the story.  Will these two be able to track down a murderous beast to stop it from more killings? What these two could do together was truly unique in the way it was all handled. This will be quite interesting read as it is brought out so well to the reader.  It was a very good read of how these two people who comes together battling 'unforeseen forces' and oh yes I loved the lusty, steamy, and spicy heated romance.  To get the whole story and answer to many questions the reader will have to pick up 'When Ash Remains' to see how well this author presents it to the readers.  Would I recommend? 

Yes, especially if you are a paranormal book lover.
