I mainly decided to read this book because the title, THE LAST DEATH WORM OF THE APOCALYPSE sounded like an awesome name for a death metal band. Upon completion of the book, was not disappointed in my rash decision.

In ARCHANGEL’S HEART there’s danger lurking due to Lijuan, one of the most powerful and deadly angel’s being dormant for two years. This calls for a meeting of angelkind to discuss the Lijuan’s impending wake up and the balance of power between the archangels.
Dark, original and awesome, GRIM TIDINGS is a strong follow-up to Kittredge’s BLACK DOG. With less of the elements that I don’t like and more suspense and drama, GRIM TIDINGS is an excellent second book in the Hellhound Chronicles.
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.
A sweeping romance that spans centuries, THE DEEPEST WELL is a spin-off of the dark and sexy Vessel Trilogy. THE DEEPEST WELL bookends the Vessel Trilogy, with the action taking place both before and after that series, and I think the people who will most enjoy this book are those who have already read it.
The Remy Chandler series is one of those that started out really strong, but has started to fizzle out as it continues. A DEAFENING SILENCE IN HEAVEN was a little bit of an improvement over the last three books, but not by much.
There was a lot going on in BOUND IN BLACK. Gen ventured into hell, Thomas revealed his true nature, there was a prophecy that was coming to pass, and surprises abounded around every corner. Despite the revelation-filled plot line, however, BOUND IN BLACK felt slow, and it felt like a lot of the action was relegated toward the ending.
ARCHANGEL’S ENIGMA has a lot going on in its over arching plot which is to be expected with the Guild Hunter series books. Like its predecessors this book continues to expand on the Cascade storyline hopefully bringing it to a conclusion eventually as I don’t know how much more destruction the earth and people can take before the earth implodes on itself.
SEALED IN SIN is really a great urban fantasy. It’s got it all, action, romance and plot twists, with some creative mythology included. Though SEALED IN SIN plays off of a lot of typical urban fantasy tropes – the girl who doesn’t know she’s special all of a sudden developing powers, the dark and mysterious protector guy, etc – Cross really manages to take them and spin them her own way.
ANGEL BAIT is a really fascinating story packed full of thrilling action and sensual romance. One issue I did have was my confusion over whether humans were aware of the paranormal creatures surrounding them or not. This issue really didn’t affect the story and it was cleared up pretty much. That aside, I loved the exploration of the nephilim (half angel half human) and the world in which they exist.
