Release Day Review! Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland #1) Chloe Neill!
Wild Hunger - Chloe Neill

 

 

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill's spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

 

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she's a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he's prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

 


“Wild Hunger” is an excellent and fascinating start to the “Chicagoland Vampires” spin off series “Heirs of Chicagoland” It continues with the fascinating and well developed world with the brilliant mix of characters from the previous series and new ones. All of which are all really strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers in and hold them captive throughout the book.

 

Elisa has a dark secret and the only person she trusts with that secret is Gabriel Keene, who she has always had a sort of frienemy relationship. That relationship adds romance to the story as they both slowly realize that there may just be more between them and readers can practically feel the chemistry sizzling between them, but the relationship has a few obstacles which keeps readers in suspense of just what will become of that attraction.

 

The smooth flowing plot is fast paced and full of twists that surprise readers during all of the thrills and excitement that takes place during the story, starting with the assassination of a diplomat and continuing with lots of intrigue, unknown enemies, rising tensions between the supernaturals and magical mysteries and battles which ensures that the readers never have a chance to become bored. There is also additional intrigue and interest involving Elisa and her dark secret and also with Lulu and her magic which further draws readers in and ensures that they want to know more.

 

There was no way that I could put “Wild Hunger” down, once I began reading and I really excited about that because this was one highly anticipated book and it seems that this new series will live up to the fascinating and wonderful world of the previous one. “The Heirs of Chicagoland” is off to a thrilling start and it definitely ensures that readers will want more.

Review: A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness

 

 

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

 

 

   

 

 

   

This book was more or less an impulse buy. I saw the trailer for the movie or TV show and thought it sounded interesting so I went on Amazon and ordered me, luckily ,a cheap used copy. Did I regret buying and reading it, no not really but maybe next time just get the book from the library.

Overall it was okay, not the worse but defiantly not the best.

The beginning was slow and sooo much info dumping that I was close to giving up. We were just thrown a whole ton of background information after the next load, it was way too much. I mean after 80 pages I knew all of her history, her parents history, both sites, the witches history and how they and other creatures exists, that was just the first 80 pages and it’s not like she was short on pages we do get over 500 some pages.

After that it did get a little better and I could enjoy the book a bit more.

I did like the overall story line, the different creatures, and also how she used a Bishop witch to be the main character, which was rather clever. I liked the magic system and how vampire and demons were endangered in a way. But sometimes I had the feeling I’m reading the NA version of Twilight.

Diana was okay but often annoying, not only her personality but also her choices, she seemed to go one way or the other, no in between. Like she either trusted no one or she trusted everyone way to fast, which of course got her in trouble. She also seemed to think with other parts of her body more than her brain ,that is for sure.

Oh their relationship. It just seemed to jump too. I actually had to track back a couple chapters to see if I missed something because it was from one peck to test a reaction to a full blown relationship the next minute. That just felt odd I thought I missed something. Also once they were a together the romance defiantly took over the story and book, which is sad because you could have both nicely balanced.

Matthew, I had a hate-love relationship with. On the one hand I really liked him and on the other I really didn’t and never could fully trust him, not even sure why. He reminded me of Vampire Bill from True Blood, the TV version, maybe that is why lol.

Overall it was an okay read and I might continue on to see what will happen but I’m not in a hurry. I need to recover from the eye rolling that this book made me do so many times.

I really have a hard time rating this book, because some aspects I really liked but others I really didn’t so I will just go with 2 ½★ - 3★ on this book .

Release Week Review! The Coyote's Bride (Masters of Maria #6) Holley Trent!
The Coyote's Bride - Holley Trent

 

 

Related to one of the oldest shapeshifter legacies in Maria, Lily Baxter grew up knowing there was a chance she’d find romance among the supernatural. But certainly her idea of romance wasn’t a drunken one-night stand with a Coyote she loves to hate, a Vegas wedding, and soon after, a heartrending miscarriage. She and Lance Aitkenson obviously aren’t meant to be.

 

But while secretly coordinating their divorce far from the snoops back in town, her new husband gets jumped by man-hating jaguar shifters, and it’s up to her to smooth things over. There’s something stranger than usual about these Jaguars. Not only do they seem to have abilities no other shapeshifters have, but they claim a centuries-old connection to Maria’s resident goddess. They see strong-minded Lily as a kindred spirit, but Lance fears they harbor sinister motives.

 

Together, he and Lily might be able to unravel the secrets of the mysterious cult and prevent them from disturbing the peace back in Maria, but can they really work cooperatively when they’re so close to calling it quits? Or will they realize that they don’t need an accident as their excuse for sticking together?
___

Also available in Masters of Maria:
1 - THE DEMIGOD'S LEGACY
2 - THE ANGEL'S HUNGER
3 - THE WOLF'S JOY
4 - THE COYOTE'S CHANCE
5 - THE COYOTE'S COWBOY

 

Each Masters of Maria story contains a complete romance set in small-town Maria, New Mexico. Read earlier stories set in this exciting and magical world in the Desert Guards and Sons of Gulielmus series!

 

 

Not only was their romance one that disappointed Lily Baxter but their quick trip to end it lands this couple right into a modern western showdown not only between them but with a group of man-hating jaguar shifters with mysterious abilities.

 

Sparks fly in every direction throughout this thrilling showdown of epic proportions between Lily and Lance as their sizzling chemistry keeps them all worked up. They seem to rub each other the wrong way which keeps this relationship in extreme turmoil which leads to a ‘War of the Roses’ type relationship and has them engaging in heated encounters full of angst, snark and just plain meanness.

 

These two solid characters easily pull readers into their story and provide them with lots of wild entertainment throughout the fast paced and explosive plot, but that’s not all that’s keeps the readers glued to the pages as they are introduced to some mysterious man-hating jaguar shifters whose motives are anybody’s guess and of course Lola and Tarik make a few ambiguous visits.

 

I was completely charmed by Lily and Lance and their uproarious courtship throughout The Coyote’s Bride and I couldn’t help but sympathize with some of their personal issues involving miscarriages. Every visit to Maria is an entertaining and eventful one but I have to say that this one certainly never had a dull moment and I didn’t want to miss one second of it and with the way it ended (which the author was so nice to give an explanation for) I am certainly looking forward to reading the next story and finding out more. Note: Miscarriages are a very sensitive subject, but the author interjected it into the story in a non-invasive or offending manor and provided helpful information to readers.
