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...

{Review} The Warrior’s Wife by Denise Domning
The Warrior's Wife (The Warriors Series Book 1) - Denise Domning

Widowed Kate is once again at the mercy of her father's match-making, and her prospects aren't very promising. If only she could marry her father's steward, a gentle young man who seems smitten with her.

 

Rafe has his sights on Kate as soon as he learns who she is. Her father's sworn enemy, he's determined to marry her and reclaim the lands that were stolen from his family. But Kate has feelings for another, and getting her out from under the watchful eye of her father isn't going to be easy.

 

The Verdict: While I enjoy historical romances, I especially like those that take place in some time other than the last couple hundred years, which is why I thought I'd give this one a shot.

 

Like was common for women in her time, Kate is looked upon as property, someone to marry off to a good match as a favor, a way of advancing the family, or means of gaining something. Still young but newly widowed, she's back under her father's care, and there's not much care to be found in him. He's not the least bit interested in her happiness; he simply wants to find her a husband that suits him, and so far it looks like he's about to make a terrible choice for her.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Kate is completely smitten with Warin, her father's steward. He's good-looking, well-mannered, and kind to her, and while she knows that match will never happen, she fantasizes about the kind of romance all women want. Rafe is determined to have her for himself, a means to getting her property back for his family, and while she's certainly intrigued by him, she's not entirely swayed. She can't deny her rather passionate feelings for him, though. What follows is drama, intrigue, and a bit of adventure as Kate learns that Rafe is really the only one invested in her happiness, and Rafe finds himself falling for her, despite his initial intentions.

 

While some things were certainly romanticized (which is exactly why we read romances, right?), the story also felt accurate to the medieval time period. Women were entirely at the whims of fathers, brothers, and husbands, and anyone with status was married off for profit and favor rather than love or happiness. Kate's experience with her first marriage wasn't altogether horrible, but it wasn't about love, and from that marriage she learned that intimacy is an uncomfortable burden at best for women. Of course, by the happily ever after, she learns differently.

 

Since there's some intrigue and a swift twist in plot partway through, it's really impossible to say more about the story without giving everything away, but I will say that The Warrior's Wife has just about everything I look for in historical romances. It's dramatic, fun, and certainly romantic, and it offers a heroine that, while true to the era, has a will of her own. If you love your romance back in time, you won't want to put this one down.

Watch out Jack Reacher, Your competition is getting better and fierce
The Warrior's Debt (Warriors Series of Crime Action Thrillers Book 4) - Ty Patterson

First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with the copy of the book.

I think i am liking Zeb carter (our protagonist) more than Jack Reacher for by the sequence of four books, our character has become more polished, fierce and unstoppable. The book is getting more and more irresistible and hard to put down.

The author is getting good and stronger at his work and he is becoming a strong threat to his contemporaries with a well sketched set of characters and even stronger story plot.

What i loved about this book is that the author has briefed all the previous books so beautifully and seamlessly that you could easily read this book as a standalone. The story is fresh for each book has only the central characters revisiting but with an effective background brief, you wont suffer much if you haven't read the previous books

There is though one problem with the book. The jump from one scene to another is almost instantly and it becomes a little bit of task to track our character's location and setting of the scene. Maybe it was in the formatting of the book or narration but somehow the transition was a bit jerky. Almost flickering between characters and scenes.

Undoubtedly The warrior series is out for blood. Blood of other popular fictional action heroes especially Jack Reacher. By the fourth book the series has gone golden and solid with both its sets of characters and strong story plot. The author needs to smooth the transition between various scenes a little more but otherwise this book is unbeatable in its genre. A terrific read and a blood pumping adrenaline read along with being rich in plot.
