MIDNIGHT MARKED has all the loveable hallmarks of this series: food, camaraderie, and Chicago pride. Dolloped on top of this delicious mix are a few relationship milestones and some impending doom, making for an enjoyable read all around.
HIS RUTHLESS BITE is just as delicious as the previous books in the Scandals With Bite series. With romantic moments balanced out by suspenseful situations, HIS RUTHLESS BITE offers readers the rare combination of historical and paranormal romance, and does it very well.
WOLF ON A MISSION is a very well written and wonderfully compelling romance which pulls the reader in to the story with characters you grow to really care about. I loved how caring Elias was in regards to taking care of his nephews and admired his determination to find his nephew’s a place to belong.
CONSPIRACY BOY is not the most amazing, most original young adult paranormal novel you’ll ever read. However, if you don’t go in expecting the next big thing, you’re going to be extremely satisfied. It’s a fun, action-filled read. And while White doesn’t break any molds, she definitely makes things interesting.
I DREAM OF DRAGONS is a lighthearted and at times very silly paranormal romance. I was confused as to what the title has to do with the story. There are dragons but nothing about dreams or genies. I thought it was a play on “I Dream of Genie” but alas, no genies. The characters were amusing and I loved Rory and his sisters. The way Rory and Amber meet was hilarious as they each tried to come up with ways to ‘share’ the apartment.
Shelley Laurenston (who also writes the Dragon Kin series as AG Aiken) has a particular way with heroines who are not your typical kick-ass urban fantasy heroines – and I love it!
Jace is a super interesting, layered character and although her quiet behaviour confuses her sister-Crows, most of us can understand the need to get away from unnecessary chit chat and noise. Jace has a particularly dark “first life”, her life before she was chosen by Skuld to become a Crow at the moment of death. Still, she isn’t overly negative and manages to care for her new family, the rowdy, loud, violent women of the Crows.
HER FIERCE WARRIOR packs a mighty punch as a suspenseful paranormal romance. The previous three books in this series are pretty brutal in their violence and intensity and while that aspect is toned down a bit in this story it’s still there especially in the first scene when we meet Minka and Angelo.
After ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again. Lucky for us, Shearin decided to self-publish more in the series! WEDDING BELLS, MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, and follows the same formula as other books in the series – successfully, I might add.
