Review: Sealed in Sin (The Vessel Trilogy #2) by Juliette Cross

Review: Sealed in Sin (The Vessel Trilogy #2) by Juliette Cross

May 4, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

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.

Review: Angel Bait (Angel Assassins, #0.5) by Tricia Skinner

Review: Angel Bait (Angel Assassins, #0.5) by Tricia Skinner

December 31, 2014 Review 3 ★★★★

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.

October 27, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

I was thrilled to finally get a novel length story featuring Ash and Janvier and jumped at the chance to read and review it. I fell in love with these Ash and Janvier in ANGEL’S PAWN and have been waiting impatiently for more about these two. There is some POV with Raphael and Elena which is great to see and it serves to push the main plot along as well as gives us a

Review: Unborn (Unborn #1) by Amber Lynn Natusch

Review: Unborn (Unborn #1) by Amber Lynn Natusch

October 2, 2014 Review 2 ★★★

Turns out I don’t have a lot to say about UNBORN. It was an interesting story, a little fallen angel, some Greek gods thrown in, and some nasty evil types that like to feed on souls and leave the unsuspecting human empty and free for possession by evil.

Review: Beverly Hills Demon Slayer (Demon Slayer, #6) by Angie Fox

Review: Beverly Hills Demon Slayer (Demon Slayer, #6) by Angie Fox

July 25, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

BEVERLY HILLS DEMON SLAYER is a fun book with some wacky dialogue, wonky magic, and weird creatures. This was yet another series that I am starting six books in but luckily it can be read as a standalone. The plot is pretty straightforward and even at its darkest moments it is able to keep things pretty light with a witty comment or two.

Review: Angel Kin (Angel Assassins #1) by Tricia Skinner

June 24, 2014 Review 4 ★★★★

I think I’ve mentioned my love of all things angel at least once, so I won’t reiterate, but I will say that ANGEL KIN was a lovely addition to that bookshelf. The Nephilim ride again in this battle for good versus evil in an urban Detroit rife with supernatural creatures.

Early Review: The Given (Celestial Blues, #3) by Vicki Pettersson

Early Review: The Given (Celestial Blues, #3) by Vicki Pettersson

May 26, 2014 Review 2 ★★★★

THE GIVEN is a satisfying and touching conclusion to the Celestial Blues series. The main mystery of who killed Griffin Shaw occupies THE GIVEN, surrounded by a plot that involves betrayal, organized crime, and murder, yet at its center, it’s a story about true love and finding peace with yourself.

Review: The A-Word (Sweet Dead Life #2) by Joy Preble

Review: The A-Word (Sweet Dead Life #2) by Joy Preble

May 17, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

I read a lot of YA novels., both paranormal and contemporary. I don’t know why the genre appeals to me as much as it does, I just go with it and eat them up like popcorn at the movies. Some authors nail the narrator voice perfectly, some sound like adults that are trying too hard to throw teen-slang in there to sound relevant. In THE A-WORD, Jenna’s voice – both in her thoughts and dialogue – is spot on.

Review: Twisted Miracles (The Shadowminds #1) by A.J. Larrieu

Review: Twisted Miracles (The Shadowminds #1) by A.J. Larrieu

April 7, 2014 Review 4 ★★★★

Something I love about the paranormal world lately is that authors seem to be shying away from copycat success and really taking paranormal elements and, to quote Rose Hathaway, making them their bitch. Larrieu takes some elements of mind magic, adds a few twists of her own and makes a wholly enjoyable universe.
