Book Theme Song

(this link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

Heroes by Generdyn Music ft. Zayde Wølf  -- I seriously don't know how I came across this, nor have I ever heard of this Generdyn or Zayde Wolf...but really this goes with the book really well has all the feels for it.  It's very inspiring and quite intriguing.♫

 

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

3.8/5 STARS

B

 

My Thoughts

 

The Last City formerly known as Gods of Anthem reads like two separate stories.  One is Liza's and the other is Tommy's.  Alternating between the two every so often, not necessarily at chapter breaks.  Which maybe made the story more confusing for me, at least for first 2/3rd of the book.  Although, I did prefer Liza's story over Tommy's because it was a little less complicated. 

 

Oh yeah…there's zombies in this as well…which I'm usually freaked out by them, because they give me nightmares.  These zombies, though, are sorta kept behind the walls so to speak, at least most of the time.  The zombie theme is not overly prevalent, which I did like, because, I didn't have any sleepless nights while reading this.

 

 

Ultimately, though, The Last City feels more like a prequel because of it's rather anti-climatic ending.  I felt like the story only became engaging within the last few pages.  I think the series has the potential to be exceptional, I just don't know if the Author can pull it off, at least for me.

Will I continue this series?  I already have the arc of La La Land, and I feel like theirs potential for this to be a great story…so…yeah.

Beautiful!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8: Willow (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8) - Joss Whedon,Andy Owens,Karl Moline

Gorgeously written and illustrated issue about Willow set during season eight of Buffy.   Won't make much sense without reading season eight first, but well worthwhile after.

Book Review: Tempting Raven (Curse Of The Vampire Queen #1) By Jessica Sorensen
Tempting Raven - Jessica Sorensen

 

I wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did. It started off very typical with the main character pulling the woe-is-me card and having no friends. What happened after that blew everything out of the water. Though I would love it if the author had gotten this book through a few more rounds of editing.

 

I liked Raven. She's the type of character that I see myself in if I were ever in her shoes. She's suspicious and questions everything. She wants explanations for (what seem to be) very simple and straightforward questions. I love that she doesn't give up. Her attitude and sassy remarks made her all the more likable in my eyes.

 

Rhyland almost won me over, but the cryptic conversations that Raven overheard and his avoidance of what should have been easy to answer questions got old very fast. He also seemed to read her mind during a few scenes (let me point out that he specifically stated that he doesn't have that ability). He was overall cagey and his brother didn't help matters in the slightest. 

 

By the end, I was already putting a few pieces together and had somewhat of an inkling to what could have been happening. Even though I ended up being wrong, it was even better than I imagined. I want to know if what happened in that ending is what made Rhyland bully Raven when they were younger? Can she actually trust him? These questions are circling my mind and I want the answers to them.

 

My Favorite Quotes:


"I'm all jokes and sarcasm."


"(...) My future, which felt like it had finally just started, is no longer mine."


"And Fate knows what it's doing (...)"

"Druid Vampire Requiem" by Kurokoneko Kamen

 

My Thoughts...

 

This story continues on from this author's  'Druid Vampire' where we now have the Huntress, Becca out to defeat Dracula and save Derek Dearg. Will Becca be making a big mistake in doing this to Derek?  I liked how this author brings in Becca's family [the Thorns] who were quite a humorous as they came for  visit.

 

As the story moves on the reader will get some more interesting characters such as Homicide Detective Alex and his police dog Maddy. It was quite a read as Becca's family will be attacked by zombies and as Alex will try to help them however suddenly a vampire shows up.  Will all be lost?

 

Will San Francisco be save from this 'Zombie Apocalypse' attack?  What will happen when Becca is kidnapped by Dracula and the Battle Nun Kendra Knight and the mad scientist Dr. Lazar Robinovitch are also in this dungeon captured?  Will Becca be able to figure out the connection between the Battle Nun and Dracula before it's too late?  In the end will Becca be able 'to use this weakness against him [Dracula] and fulfill the prophecy?  Will Becca and Derek finally get a HEA?  To get all of  the answers to all of these questions  and so much more the reader will have to pick up this good read "Druid Vampire Requiem" to see how this author will present it so well to the readers.

My Thoughts....

 

This author gives the reader quite a good read dealing mainly with Becca, Slaine and Derek.  Be ready for a lots of turns and turns as we get a very interesting thriller romantic fun read.  In the end will Becca be able to kill Derek now that she has become a true Druid Vampire Huntress? So, we are left with a cliffhanger where will we have to get the next read 'Druid Vampire Requiem to see  how the rest of the story will turn out.
