ARC Review Copy

 

Despised by his tiger shifter pride as an abomination, Grey has ventured far from home, deep into the bowels of Hell in search of answers about the machinations of Archangel, the mortal hunter organisation who held his twin captive. With no knowledge of the realm, and little skill with the local languages, he quickly finds himself at a dead end—until he crosses paths with a beautiful hellcat female who rouses his darkest most dangerous instincts.

 

Lyra has been a fool, falling for the charms of a male whose only desire was to make a fast buck by selling her. Shackled and collared, her strength muted by magic, she awaits her time on the stage at a black-market auction, but before it can come, all hell breaks loose and she seizes a chance to escape—and runs straight into a majestic warrior who steals her breath away and tempts her like no other as he battles alone to free everyone.

 

When Lyra offers her services as a translator to repay Grey for saving her, will he be strong enough to resist the needs she awakens in him and spare himself the pain of her inevitable rejection when she discovers the truth about him? And when the powerful male in charge of the slave ring starts a bloody hunt for Lyra, can she escape another collar and find the courage to trust the tiger who is capturing her heart?

Another magnificent addition to the Eternal Mates series. Treasured by a Tiger was a brilliant way to wrap-up the the sibling tigers HEA’s.

 

We are taking back to HELL where answers and more questions arise on what Archangel is up to, we meet some old and new characters, and Grey finds more then he expected to on his adventure.

 

I wasn’t much of a fan of the Hellcat’s when they popped up in Bitten by a Hellcat, but I found myself liking Lyra, our feisty Hellcat lead. Grey, our humble hero I was already in love with him the my moment he was introduced in Turned by a Tiger.

 

The story flowed nicely. I love the wide verity of paranormal creatures and I really loved finding out more of what Archangel is up to. Their are still questions, but we get a little more. Besides Archangel the author also throws in an old foe and wraps that little loose thread up. I like the little hits and answers we get throughout the story. They keep things going, besides the sexy romance.

 

Lyra and Grey’s romance was wonderful. I just loved watching these two together. Lyra is afraid of males and that is expected after the betrayal, but she finds the strength to see past that and open up to Grey. Grey, OMG he was fabulous. He doesn’t want to hurt Lyra and fights his instincts along the way as well as he doesn’t feel worthy of any female, but WOW when he shows Lyra what he is, she does what any fated mate would do and tells him how AMAZING and WONDERFUL he is. I had tears in my eyes.

 

Treasured by a Tiger gives us action, steamy romance, and an exciting story. As this story ends another will come. The author has created a captivating world, where their is no shortage of excited and interesting characters, plus clues and mischief thrown in to keep you coming back for more.

 

Rated: 4.5 Stars

Wir finden Hyänen leider scheiße!
Schiffbruch mit Tiger - Yann Martel,Gabriele Kempf-Allié,Manfred Allié

Schwupps, und schon wieder durch mit dem Buch.

Nach einem etwas zähen Anfang, wo man erstaunlich viel über Faultiere lernt (I like!) und philosophischen Abschweifungen über Gott (not so much!) geht es in rasantem Tempo weiter. Zumindest was die abnehmende Anzahl an Protagonisten angeht. Wer hätte gedacht, dass die Geschichte eines Schiffbrüchigen auf See so spannend sein kann. Robinson Crusoe hatte ja immerhin mehr Spielfläche...

Obwohl Pi seltsam altbacken redet, kann man einen gewissen Humor nicht leugnen. Zu meiner großen Unterhaltung. Davon abgesehen gab es Momente die mir den Magen umgedreht haben und zum Schluss sitzt man mit Schnappatmung wie der Fisch auf dem Trockenen und wundert sich, wie, wo, was. Soziale Gefüge in Notsituationen sind kein Ort an dem ich mich in meinem Leben zwingend wiederfinden wollte! Moral ist schwierig.

 

Tüpfelhyäne. Gar nicht mal so hässlich.

Turned by a Tiger - Felicity E. Heaton

I can’t believe we are at the 12th book in the Eternal Mates series. From the release of the first book in the series, I have been an avid follower. When I discovered that book, #12 would be released, I was eager to get my hands on a copy so when the opportunity arose for me to receive an ARC, I eagerly accepted. When I take up a book by written by Felicity Heaton, my only concern is her ability to match up or surpass the earlier books. She has never failed to meet my expectations, and this instalment was no different.

What the story is about

The story follows Talon a 300-year-old tiger shifter and second in command to the alpha of his pride. Captured by a group who hunted immortal beings, he escaped his captors and was on the run for his life. Faced with certain death, he had no choice but to seek sanctuary at Underworld, a nightclub for immortals owned by a jaguar shifter. However, the possibility exists that he is likely to kill him rather than offer him protection. Upon entering the club, he was confronted by the Jaguar shifter he needed to avoid. However, luck was on his side as a human female bartender stepped in and offered to protect him from the wrath of her boss.

Sherry is no stranger to danger as she is surrounded by immortals daily. From the moment the handsome tiger shifter entered Underworld, she knew he needed help. Drawn to the enigmatic shifter, she went out on a limb to protect him.

The Characters

The heroines featured in this series, regardless of their species are strong-willed, brave, kick-ass, have a sense of humour and loyal to their mates. Sherry was no different. She is not a woman who will sit back and let a man fight for her; she preferred to fight alongside him. I admired how she stood up to her boss and willingly entered enemy territory to help Talon.

Sherry’s actions made Talon view humans in a different light.Talon is your typical alpha male. He is confident, dominant, and protective. He feared that Sherry would not fit in his world; as a result, he was scared to get close to her. However, his desire for was stronger than his fear.

I enjoyed their interaction, which was both funny and passionate. The story started out with a bang, but then the pace slowed, however it regained its momentum. Even though the pace slowed in between, it did not make the story any less interesting. Once again, Ms Heaton pulled me into her fascinating world where faes, humans, demons and shifters Co-exist.

This instalment took a different angle that threw me off, but not in a bad way. There was insta-love, which is not a typical occurrence in this series. What I have come to expect from the series is an immediate recognition of one's mate, but a gradual development of their love for each other. In this instance, everything took place instantly.

The things that remained constant, however, were the fight/action scenes, the author’s impeccable writing style, a riveting storyline and well-developed characters. The story was funny and entertaining. Characters from the earlier books added to the fun and action.

Talon had a secret for which I waited with bated breath for its revelation. My feelings in regards to the big reveal were mixed. I was disappointed as I was expecting something with a high shock factor, but at the same time, I was intrigued as to the impact it would have on Sherry.

Conclusion/Recommendation

I was pleased with how this instalment ended. Turned by a Tiger was enjoyable from start to finish and I cannot wait to read the next book in this awesome series.If you enjoy paranormal romance packed with action and passion, then Turned by a Tiger and the rest of the Eternal Mates series are a must.

Tiger - Jeff Stone

This book was a lot better than I was expecting. I picked it up from the Little Free Lending Library, thinking I'd quickly read it and put it back. But now I'm kind of hooked on the series and really want to find the second book.

The writing was simple, but still engaging. I can see it being a good read for young readers. There is a lot going on in this novel. I loved all of the story arcs. The descriptions are also well-done. You can really picture what is happening.

The story itself was very fast-paced. I loved finding out more about the characters. I read it pretty quickly because I was so taken in by the writing and the plot.

There were only two things that were not quite to my liking. One was the serious lack of female characters. I get it, I totally get it. But I feel like Stone set the story up in a way that was not inclusive for female characters. Not only that, but "femininity" is often seen as degrading and bad. Fu is furious when they have to hide "like a bunch of girls." Ying changes the title of "Brother" to "Sister" to further shame Fu. I understand where it was coming from, but I was disappointed with the mindset. Granted, there are some good things that happen to females (children in the village), but overall the presentation of girls and women was problematic.

Secondly, this book is pretty violent. It is not done poorly. The descriptions aren't gory. But it is something to be aware of for young readers. There are a lot of fight scenes with blood and such. In general, the mindset is to only use violence when it is absolutely necessary, but there is quite a bit in here. Again, it's not overly gross or anything, but it is something to keep in mind.

Overall, a fantastic book. I really look forward to reading the next one in the series.
