When teens go missing in Hawaii, a group of demon-hunters—half human and half angel—disguised as high school students, must leave Crossroads, the place where they reside. In a race against time, they uncover the mystery connecting the missing teens, which dates back to the era of the Knights Templar. However, when they discover one of the Templars passed down a book containing all the secrets and codes to finding a particular treasure, they soon realize this forbidden treasure needs to be found before Cyrus, the lord of the possessor demons, acquires it—a treasure which been safeguarded and hidden from him.

There is only one problem: the pages containing the clues leading to the treasure is missing. When the first page is found, Cyrus threatens to kill more descendants of the Knights Templar if it is not given to him by Friday the thirteenth. In the midst of threats and discovery, the demon-hunting angels find they are not alone when supernatural beings begin to reveal themselves. Can they put their differences aside and work together to solve the Knights Templars’ cipher? As they astral travel to the past, they witness a lot more than they have bargained for. And some things are better left unseen.

 

My Review

I thought the book was pretty good. I have never read the first series with Michael and Claudia, so I will definitely have to later down the road. I thought the main character of Lucia was an okay heroine, but it took awhile for me to start to warm up to her. I really loved her brother Zach and there guardian Davin a lot. Davin was so freaking funny and kept me laughing, but he also had a very serious side as well. 

Lucia is only 17 years old I had to keep reminding myself that, because of some of the stupid stuff she does in the book. Plus she hasn't liked in the human world, or liked a boy, until she meets Eli, so she's also dealing with her hormones. 

Now Eli I am still not sure about, I really don't know if I like him or not. Or how I feel about him and Lucia as a couple. Sometimes his such a jerk to Lucia, and he seems like a know it all. 

I thought the book was very interesting especially the ending, which ends in a very big cliffhanger. So I am looking forward to the rest of the series to see however is going to turn out for everyone. Oh before I forget, which I would hate ,is if I don't talk about Lucia's best guy friend and another one of my favorite characters, which is Jack. I really love that he plays a big part in things that are going on, in regards to the plot. I just freaking love this guy, his just so awesome to me. I love that he is there for Lucia, and even though he likes Lucia as more than a friend, he knows that Eli is the one Lucia wants to be with. And he still wants to be in her life, if only in a best friend. 

Thanks to all parties involved that picked me to take part in the book tour for this book, after I requested for it.

Good little introduction for the new series!!!!!
The Angel Knights (The Angel Knights Series) (Volume 1) - Regina Wamba,Mary Ting

I really thought it was a good introducing for the series. I never read the first series with Michael, and Claudia, which is called Crossroads. I do own the first book just haven't read it yet. There really isn't a whole lot to review about this one. Even though it does set up the new series, that looks like it's going to be interesting. In the new series it's going to be about the children of Claudia and Michael, as well as their Uncle Davin, whom is going to be there guardian.

In this book we find out that the new series is going to deal with trying to find out who are taken some missing teens and why. The main characters will be Uncle Davin, ( whom I really love, because his super funny), Zach, and who I will be the main character and that is Lucia. And from what I read about her already is that she's going to get herself in a lot of trouble, because she reacts before she thinks. I really believe that because she has a big heart and what's to help the people she loves. 

I already started to read the first one in the series but my review won't be up until my part of a book tour that I am taking part of. So you'll have to wait until the middle of the month to find out what I thought about the first book.

Book Review For: The Client Pamela DuMond
The Client: A Playing Dirty Novel - Pamela DuMond,Regina Wamba

'The Client' by Pamela DuMond is the story of Charlotte and Joe.
Charlotte is a match maker who made a great match that got her name out there. While at the wedding party she ran into Joe and it was a wet encounter. Joe had drinks in his hands and she ended up getting her dress ruined. Charlotte did give him her first name but that was it. They ran into each other again a the Gym where Charlotte was given a pass. Joe started working their after he had an accident and when his Grandmother, Marte Delacroix told him to work there. Joe is very close to his 83 year old grandmother and she is actually a very funny busy body. I really enjoyed the grandmother character.
Joe hasn't been in a relationship in a long time other than his quickies at the Library aisle. They are both attracted to each other and this builds into something more.
I really enjoyed their story and will be looking for more books by Ms. DuMond.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Song of Princes by Janell Rhiannon
Song of Princes (Homeric Chronicles Book 1) - Nadège Richards,Regina Wamba,Janell Rhiannon

This is a perfect case of "It's not you, it's me." when it comes to books. So let me start out by stating that Janell Rhiannon has done her research. It's apparent, from the moment that you open this book, that Song of Princes is prepared to take you deep into the Homeric legends. Although this is absolutely a retelling, the broad strokes of legend are vivid and spot on. The reader is pulled into a story of the ages. A story surrounding would be Kings and warriors, all leading up to the fall of Troy. If that sounds like your cup of tea, you're in for a treat.

What I really enjoyed about this story, more than anything, was the detailed characterization that Rhiannon put into each and every character. From the moment that Paris is born, the story that is woven around him brings every aspect of his character to life. I was so impressed at how quickly I fell into step with him, especially since I'm not much of a study in Homeric legends. The same was true of Achilles, of Hektor, and of Odysseus. I wasn't allowed to feel lost while reading this, despite my lack of previous knowledge. The story took my hand, and led me into this world of gods and goddesses.

The story itself is, quite honestly, a little dense. I'm not generally a reader of things historically based though so, again, this will probably very much suit anyone who is. The pacing is definitely spot on, however. Events are laid out in this pace that lies in that perfect space where nothing is ever boring. There's always something new coming to light, or a new character to meet. I have to say that the dialogue is what I really had the most difficult time with. It feels stilted, and unnatural. I've read books from different time periods before, and I know how easy it is to fall into that trap. Especially because, as I mentioned above, there's a lot of information to fit into a smaller amount of pages. Still, this was the one thing that really kept me from falling as deeply into the story as I wish I could have.

Truth be told, I know that this is a series that many readers are going to love. I don't blame them one bit. It's tough to take something that's already a legend, and mold it to your own devices. Rhiannon has accomplished just that. Readers who love this kind of book, filled with fate and fortune, will likely fall in love with Song of Princes as well.

September 2016 TBR
Mammoth: A Novel - Douglas Perry
The Apostates - Lars Teeney
Song of Princes (Homeric Chronicles Book 1) - Nadège Richards,Regina Wamba,Janell Rhiannon

Esio Trot - Quentin Blake,Roald Dahl
A Mortal Song - Megan Crewe
The Memory Thief - Bryce Moore
The Midnight Sea - Kat Ross
Blood of the Prophet (The Fourth Element) (Volume 2) - Kat Ross
Kubrick's Game - Derek Taylor Kent,Lane Diamond,Lina Rivera

I need someone to follow me around while I'm checking my email and smack me on the hand every time I agree to do a new blog tour. *sigh* Pretty much all of these books are review books for tours, or that I agreed to read for the authors themselves. It's not that I'm not excited about most of them! I am! I'm just bummed because somewhere in here I also have to fit some bingo books. September is going to be a challenging month.

 

Cool things about next month though:

 

* The IT re-read is with the Horror Aficionados group on Goodreads, which I'm super stoked for.

 

* Esio Trot is part of a HUGE blog tour in honor of Roald Dahl's birthday next month, which is going to be really really awesome! A ton of prizes will be given away.

 

* Kubrick's Game is a new book by an author that I helped out a ton before he worked his way into YA (he wrote MG books), and I get to provide one of his first 10 reviews. I feel special <3.

 

Wish me luck! This is going to be an intense reading month.
