Release Week Review! Twilight Desires (Morgan Creek #3) Amanda Ashley!
Twilight Desires - Amanda Ashley

 

 

“A master of her craft.” —Maggie Shayne

 

Sofia Ravenwood was once fascinated by vampires—their seductive power, their inhuman strength, their dark desires. Then one of them attacked her family, and she threw out her goth attire and vowed to keep clear of her enemies. Until she heard about Ethan Parrish: a sweet, sizzling-hot former college football player, turned into a vampire against his will.

 

Wandering the deserted streets of Morgan Creek, Wyoming, Ethan’s sure he'll be alone forever—a monster like him deserves nothing else. Then beautiful, complicated Sofia agrees to meet him, fangs and all. The need she ignites in him is more than just the pulse of her blood or the scent of her skin. But he's not the only bloodsucker desperate to make her his own . . .

 

Praise for Amanda Ashley and Twilight Dreams

“A tender paranormal romance exploring love and family ties, and it’s tinged with intrigue and vengeance. . . . This portrait of new love is sweet and endearing.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Author Ashley is no stranger to paranormal romance . . . Intriguing.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Master storyteller Amanda Ashley weaves a classic vampire tale of sensual, spine tingling suspense.”
—Christine Feehan

 

 

Passion and excitement explodes from the pages of this thrilling traditional vampire romance as Sofia and Ethan try to overcome some traditional issues regarding vampires and some not so traditional ones. The characters are strong and convincing as they draw readers into their story as Ethan has trouble accepting what he is and has lots of worries that go along with being turned into a “monster,” while Sofia has to wonder if being with Ethan is the best thing for her and her future. This has lots of emotional turmoil that readers can understand as well as keeping them glued to the pages as they wonder if this couple will reach a happily ever after or will their difference be more than they can handle.

 

The plot is steady to fast paced plot and keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat with lots of thrilling suspense as Sofia and Ethan not try to move forward but a fight with an enemy that has set his sights on Sofia and the town of Morgan Creek. This enemy takes some elaborate measures to get what he wants most of which are deadly and brings unknown elements into the mix. Which gives readers as well as Ethan and Saintcrow, quite a few surprising twists to become caught up in.

 

The author is instigating some changes to the town of Morgan Creek and I have to wonder where she is taking this thrilling and mesmerizing series, especially since I can imagine several different paths she could take from here which could mean more wonderfully spine tingling vampire romances to come for readers. Note: While the story may be in the more traditional style of vampire romance, it is in no way boring and readers are easily smitten and charmed by the sexy vampires of Morgan Creek.

Amanda Ashley is one of those rare birds—a California native. She's lived in Southern California her whole life and, except for the earthquakes, she loves it. She shares a home with her husband, as well as an adorable Pomeranian named Lady, a wild house sparrow named Tweety, and a tortoise who remains nameless. Amanda and her alter ego, Madeline, have written 60 books. Not bad for someone who started writing just for the fun of it. Her books have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists. You can get a sneak peek at her next book on her website AmandaAshley.com.

Crossroads of Twilight, The Wheel of Time #10 by Robert Jordan
Crossroads of Twilight - Robert Jordan

This is a toughie. There are many reasons why this book is so notorious, but I'll stick with two reasons. The first is that the bulk of this book is people reacting to the admittedly awesome cleanse of saidin at the end of 'Winter's Heart'. It was awesome, but did we really have to read through all of those reactions, we easily could have just jumped right to people's responses to the phenomenon.

 

The second reason is Elayne and Aviendha taking a bath together. There's nothing salacious there, and we had plenty of Egwene and the Wise Ones sweating together in the lodges back in 'The Shadow Rising', but it was such a long bath. So very, very long.

 

'Crossroads' spends a lot of time reeling out some of the back storylines, without a whole lot happening. The bath is just too good of an example to pass by. Elayne and Aviendha are successioning in Andor, and we learn that claiming the throne of Andor, and carrying babies, can be deadly serious business.

 

Perrin is still chasing after Faile, who is still a prisoner of the Shaido along with Morgase, Alliandre, two others and two Aiel. Masema is...around.

 

Mat is playing getting to know you with his suspected bride along with Egeanin, Domon, and once-prominent characters Julien, Thom, etc.

 

Egwene's politicking with the Aes Sedai is more showing us the steps characters must take to grow, but it sure isn't exciting. I chaired the main administrative body of my municipality (sounds exciting right?) for two years, and sat through many meetings that mimicked the meetings of the Hall of the Tower. Jordan nailed it. It was like I was there! As dull as those scenes could be, I had to grant points for accuracy.

 

Rand... shows up! He does orchestrate important things, and we get to see Loial again (yay!), but there's not a whole lot of movement.

 

After 'Crossroads' came out there was a longer wait than usual for the sequel, as Jordan chose to flesh out a prequel story called 'New Spring'. I was too disgusted to read it at the time, but I'll get to it this reread, eventually.

 

The Wheel of Time:

 

Next: 'The Knife of Dreams'

 

Previous: 'Winter's Heart'

TWILIGHT by Erin Hunter
Twilight - Erin Hunter
The Clans are still settling into their new homes and problems are developing between those who feel the Clans should still help one another and those who believe there were always four Clans and each Clan is responsible for itself.  There is also the visions that the medicine cats are receiving that none can interpret.  They can see blood and violence but not the who or why. 
 
I did not cry as badly in this book.  Probably because the battle scene was interrupted by my having to close the book to get off the bus in the middle of the battle scene which was towards the end.  I still teared up though.  This story is more of Leafpool and her feelings.  It also shows the resentment Clans have towards one another but how it is necessary at times for them to help each other.  And the battle still rages between Clan born and kittypets.  Midnight makes another appearance.  I like the respect shown to her.  The bond between those who traveled to the sun-drown place is still strong but fraught with problems because of the division of the Clans.  A surprise appearances occurs.
 
I enjoyed this book.   I look forward to the next book.  I want to know about Leafpool's one vision.  What does it mean for the future?  And why the appearance of an old friend?

Reading progress update: I've read 368 out of 624 pages.
Crossroads of Twilight - Robert Jordan

At some point I want to make a complaint post about these trade editions. They are rife with errors, carrying over many from the old editions and adding more.

 

'Crossroads of Twilight' so far is the book that embodies the absolute worst of this series, so it goes.

When Twilight Burns by Colleen Gleason
When Twilight Burns - Colleen Gleason

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had a great time with this book! I had such a good time with the third book in this series that I had to start reading this installment right away. This is the fourth book in The Gardella Vampire Hunters which is a series that really needs to be read in order. This was a book that I wanted to read for hours at a time and was completely consumed by the story. I am so glad that I decided to pick this one up.

This book takes Victoria back to London and picks up right after the events of the previous book. Victoria has survived a really close call but not without a few lingering effects. She has a lot to deal with in her own life and will need to move since the heir to her late husband's title has been found. Victoria's mother is back to her match making ways and it appears that there is a vampire in London that is able to move around in the daytime. There is plenty of things going on in this book to keep the pages turning.

I love the excitement of these books but the characters are really what keeps me reading. Just when I think I know all the important stuff about this group of people, some vital piece of information is revealed that changes everything. I am not usually a fan of love triangles but I think that they way it was handled in this book made it work well. I feel like romance is part of the story but the fight against the vampires is always the focus. Victoria does not spend her time swooning over men. I like that she isn't afraid to take what she wants and I think that the chemistry between Victoria and both men felt very authentic. There were a lot of important developments between the characters in this installment.

I would recommend this series to fans of urban fiction. This series has really had everything that I look for in this kind of book with great characters, complex mysteries, and lot of action. I can't wait to read the next book in this fantastic series very soon.

Initial Thoughts
I am loving this series! There is a lot going on in this book and I wasn't sure how things would work out at times. I am really falling for these characters and I hate to see them come to harm or encounter any kind of pain. This book takes Victoria and the others back to London where there is a vampire that seems to be able to move in the daylight. There was a love triangle that played a rather big part of this story. I am not a big fan of love triangles but I think that it works in this story with the way that it has been handled.
