Kato (Stone Warriors # 2) by D.B. Reynolds Review
The Stone Warriors: Kato: The Stone Warr... The Stone Warriors: Kato: The Stone Warriors, Book 2 - D. B. Reynolds

 

 

It was a time when gods walked the earth, when armies fought not for bits of land, but for the very existence of humanity. On such a battlefield, five formidable warriors stood against an evil greater than any the earth had ever seen. But evil is not an honorable foe. Betrayed by someone they trusted, the warriors were cursed, one by one, tossed into the maelstrom of time, imprisoned in stone, their freedom resting on nearly impossible conditions. Until...

Kato Amadi...born of darkest sorcery, unstoppable on the battlefield, his magic is as deadly as his blade. But not even magic could save him from vicious betrayal. Trapped for millennia in darkness and silence, he is freed at last, only to find himself in the middle of a battle against the very beasts of hell he was created to destroy.

Grace Van Allen is a scholar of ancient languages who toils in the dim recesses of a museum basement with only a beautiful stone warrior to keep her company. But when Grace calls upon her silent warrior to help her translate an obscure new language, she breaks the ancient curse holding him prisoner...and frees three deadly demons to rampage through her city.

Tracking demons is what Kato was born to do, but he’ll need Grace’s help. And when they discover that Kato’s enemy is still alive and still plotting against him, their hunt takes a dangerous turn, one that might just prove fatal for both of them...

 

 

 

As you probably know D.B. Reynolds, Vampires is America series is one hot world that is full of sexy vampires and this spin off series is just as hot and sexy only we now have sorcerers, magic and curses to spark the imagination.

 

The second book in the Stone Warriors series certainly has sparks flying and the imagination soaring. Kato is one hunky warrior with some awesome magic and fighting skills, but he’s also got that dark, dangerous but vulnerable vibe going on that reaches out grabs readers’ hearts. Grace is a spunky heroine that adds some spice to the story as her character starts off seemingly vulnerable but surprises readers with quite a few admirable traits and an ability to roll with the punches. The romance between Kato and Grace is hot and deliciously sexy and made me green with envy, I mean what red blooded woman wouldn’t love to wake up her very own hunky warrior just in the nick of time.

 

The plot is full of twists and turns and keeps readers wondering about a variety of different aspects of the story, the main characters, the supporting characters and most especially the bad guys. Believe me when I tell you that the author is one step ahead of you and the danger has increased with this story as the evil villain has more tricks up his sleeve and continues to lead Nick and his warriors on a perilous chase.

 

Kato is a fascinating read that kept me glued to the pages and ended with me wanting more; when is the next book coming out? I really can’t wait to read the next one as it seems we just might get to travel to Japan… hmm….

 

5 STARS

A Call to Arms (The Chronicles of Arden #1) by Shiriluna Nott
A Call to Arms - SaJa H.,Shiriluna Nott

This is young adult novel, so don't expect any sex or many romantic moments. 
However, closer to the end of the story, there were confessions and a few tender kisses. 
I would recommend this for my 13-year olds (that's roughly the age of the characters, anyway) without hesitation.

The Academy in this book houses many professions: military, healing,magic, law... However, there is virtually no magic of any sort in this book, save for a couple of healing episodes.

Despite being true "young adult" novel, the book was pretty interesting to me and I really enjoyed the characters and the plot.

There are a few bumps in the writing style, but one that annoyed me most was the author's inability (or fear) to use pronouns. "Sentinel trainee" or "mage trainee" started to drive me (excuse my language) nuts by the end of the book.

Animal Instinct (Duncan Andrews Thrillers #2) by Stephen Osborne
Animal Instinct - Stephen Osborne

I am kind of mad at Gina for sleeping through the whole ordeal. Her father. Her troubles. Yet it's Dunc who ends up in all kinds of trouble.

Still, great fun :)

The Door Into Fire (The Tale of the Five #1) by Diane Duane
The Door Into Fire - Diane Duane

Sex. Drugs. And Rock... Color Purple. Very 70-ies.


What. A. Drag. 

Never a straight (no pun) line in this book. I don't mind when a story gets from A to D via B, C and while at it detours through E and K. I do mind however, when the author goes through entire alphabet to connect A to B. Now imagine that alphabet being intense purple. It frigging haunts me in my sleep now.

One star.

And no, DD was not the one and only writing and publishing queer literature prior to 2001. No credit for that. Sorry, not sorry.

 

PS And what's with the cover? O.o

Deep Magic (Deep Magic #1) by Gillian St. Kevern
Deep Magic - Gillian St. Kevern

The ending seemed as tangled as Dewy's hair at one point, and was dealt with it the same way - cut short. But on the whole - pure magic. I loved it to pieces :) 
And yeah, Vegemite... @.@  lol
