THE DARKEST HOUR by Erin Hunter
The Darkest Hour - Erin Hunter
  This ends the first series of the Warrior books. Fireheart is now the leader of ThunderClan. There is a new danger in the woods and not what he expected. As he works to bring his clan together again and discover the new danger to them, he also deals with becoming the leader needed by the clan at this time.

I love this series. Though reluctant to get into the books at first, I look forward to reading more of

I love this series. Though reluctant to get into the books at first, I look forward to reading more of the clans. I needed Kleenex for this one as Fireheart becomes Firestar and goes through the ceremony for that then dealing with those whose lives will end (there is always someone who won't be back) and the betrayals. This is a series recommended by niece and she never gives me a hint of what will happen.

A DANGEROUS PATH by Erin Hunter
A Dangerous Path - Erin Hunter
  Tigerclaw has finally gotten what he wants--his own clan. Now Tigerstar, he is the leader of Shadow Clan. He is tearing Thunder Clan apart as the clan tries to rebuild after the fire (see book 4.) Fireheart is having problems as the deputy of Thunder Clan. Bluestar is not well and has lost faith in Star Clan. Fireheart knows how bad it is for the clan and now there is more darkness in the forest that seeks to destroy Thunder Clan.

I love this series. As I get further into the story I get sucked in the books and want to know what will happen. Now truths are being publicly revealed. Loyalties are being tested and strained. New problems are arising. What is the sense of keeping your clan's secrets when full disclosure would help all the clans?

This series is well done and will hold the interest of all readers regardless of age.

RISING STORM by Erin Hunter
Rising Storm - Erin Hunter
  Fourth book of the first Warriors series. Bluestar is having a hard time getting over Tigerclaw's betrayal. Fireheart is learning to be deputy but he is thwarted by Bluestar's lack of presence in the clan. He is also having problems with Cloudpaw. When tragedy strikes Fireheart must lead his clan to safety while dealing with rogues.

I am enjoying this series. My niece got me into it and refuses to answer any questions. "You'll just have to read to find out," she tells me. I like Thunder Clan. I also enjoy watching Fireheart learn how to lead. He makes mistakes but is willing to learn and to listen to those of experience. He has problems inside and outside the Clan. He does his best in all situations.

The story is full of action and adventure. There is intrigue and some romance. Fireheart is clueless there. It is also good to see that blood does not always mean family. It means being able to trust those that have your back.

Book Review of HUNTER by Cynthia Lucas
Hunter (Soul Warriors Series) (Volume 1) - Cynthia Lucas

Nyx Leron is a Hunter. A demon hunter. The thing is....demons aren't what fairy tales or religious texts say they are and reality is only a matter of which reality you happen to perceive.

 

After being sentenced to serving a term in Reality Level 3 on the prison planet known as Earth for a galactic 'crime' he didn't commit, the Hunter soon learns that the balance of power and the control of Sacred Knowledge that can free all souls from endless cycles on prison planets like Earth are in the hands of corruption.

 

After his targets escape, losing him his bounty and his debt payoff, he barely escapes with his life and unexpectedly lands in the apartment of librarian and sometime tarot card reader, Lyra Hall. With a coven of soul-sucking demons now on his tail and traces of his energy in her living space and on her person, the Hunter has no choice but to take the human woman with him as he makes his escape to another galaxy, dimension and reality level where he will try to figure out how to protect the billions of souls that are now in danger.

 

Lyra Hall is a librarian with a vision....literally. Since childhood she's been able to 'see' things in the dark that others couldn't; shadows that come to her when she's on the verge of sleep. Are they real? Or just an overactive imagination from reading too many books on the occult? Lyra's about to find out when she wakes up in the middle of the night to what she thought were two demons standing beside her bed, only to discover instead the most handsome blue eyed man she's ever seen, accompanied by a snow white wolf. When he tells her that in order to save her life he must take her with him on a journey across reality, dimensions and galaxies, she thinks he's a delusional psychotic who may be dangerous...that is until the demons that are hot on his tail begin to materialize in her apartment!

 

As she and the Hunter make their escape Lyra has no idea how deep the 'rabbit hole' goes , but she soon discovers she's about to embark on not only an adventure beyond any she could have imagined...but an awakening of who she really is and the real meaning of the word 'soul mate'.

 

Demons...they're not who you think they are, and sometimes possession by one is your only salvation.

 

Review 4*

 

This was an intriguing science fiction romance.

 

Nyx Leron is an interesting character. I really liked him. He is a demon hunter and has been given the ability to travel through portals to other higher dimensions in order to collect them. However, after discovering that things are not all they seem and in an attempt to escape his would be captors, he stumbles across a mysterious woman who now faces danger because of his actions. Forced to keep her safe, he must unravel the secrets kept by his employer.

 

Lyra Hall is also an intriguing character. However, I found her to be slightly annoying. I'm all for strong females but something about her grated on me. I don't know what it was and I still can't put my finger on why. Nevertheless, other readers may not have the same reaction to her. She is a librarian living on Earth, but she has been able to "see" creatures that are not exactly human. When a stranger kidnaps her, she finds out that things are not as they seem and her life will never be the same again.

 

I really liked Vega, Nyx's lupine companion, and a few of the other characters such as D'Anan and Talon. The Chancellor, who happens to be an elemental, was decidedly creepy and dark, and he made the perfect villain.

 

This story was an exciting mixture of action, adventure, danger and romance. I really liked this book. Why the four stars I hear you ask. The reason was simple: It was a metaphysical/science fiction story rather than the paranormal romance I had expected. It was my fault, as I saw the cover and didn't check the genre when it showed up in my recommendations on Amazon. I love science fiction anyway, so that wasn't too much of an issue. What threw me was the spirituality/enlightenment angle. I'm all for spirituality and enlightenment, but this story made my head hurt with the seven levels of reality. However, I enjoyed how the author incorporated it into the story. What I struggled to understand is why, if spirituality and enlightenment is attained with peace and knowledge up until level six, the author used pain as the catalyst to become an elemental? It was a jarring contrast.

 

As the story progressed and secrets were revealed, I found myself intrigued all over again. There were several twists I never saw coming and the ending surprised me. Although disappointed that this was not the paranormal romance I thought it was, I would consider reading more of this author's books in the future.

 

Cynthia Lucas has written an intriguing romance. I enjoyed her writing style, which was fast paced and descriptive. This kept me turning the pages. However, I felt the flow was not as smooth as it could have been. Some scenes felt clunky and too laden down with heavy philosophical ideas. Nevertheless, this did not detract too much from my enjoyment of the story.

 

Due to scenes of a sensual nature that are rather hot (although not as explicit as some romances I have read), I do not recommend this book to younger readers under the age of 16. I do, however, recommend this book if you love science fiction or paranormal romance. - Lynn Worton

Book Blitz: The Hunter's Moon (Secret Warriors Series) by Beth Trissel

28198386

 

Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she's hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers.

 

Then a very cute guy who handles a bow like Robin Hood emerges from the woods and takes them to safety at his fortress-like home. And that's just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets...

 

Excerpt: “Should we stay, or go while the smoke lasts?”  The cloth muffled her voice.

 

“You can hardly walk.”

 

She couldn’t argue that point. Neither could they wait to be found. “The Panteras won’t give up until we’re dead.”

 

“Maybe they think we are,” he argued under his breath.

 

“Maybe.”

 

She suspected Mateo would demand a body, even a charred one. Make that two. She and Jimmy didn’t have much choice, though, other than to crouch in dread while the fire crackled.

 

“Next birthday, I want an AK-47.” He nudged her. “Look.”

 

She fixed her blurry gaze on what appeared to be a black wolf emerging from the trees. The creature was larger than she’d thought wolves were, and she’d understood none remained in these mountains. They were all farther north or west. Somewhere else.

 

Apparently, she was misinformed.

 

Judging by its size, she guessed this was a male. He stopped before their hideout. Eyes the color of red coals surveyed them before he turned and darted down the trail she’d spotted.

 

“Holy cow, Batboy. Did you see that?” she whispered.

 

Jimmy didn’t reply. He prodded her again. She stared at the big brown and gray wolf that took the black one’s place. Where on earth had he come from?

 

The beast turned its furry head at her and Jimmy. His eyes shone with a luminous light, like fireflies...
