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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
