Misguided angels by Melissa de la Cruz

Betrayed, love, hate that just the beginning
"After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.
Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online…for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.
As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart."
Just finish reading Misguided Angel and as the other book is was good, i took me sometime to get to it, because i think i actually found Skyler side of the story a little boring and just plain lacking compared to the other character, plus i still to confused about there relationship ( her and Jack).
Now i actually like Melissa de la Cruz story line and plots, but i think that is about time she explain a little of what happen between each couple, like Jack and Skyler ( i don't know if there together or not or how they actually mate?).
This book is not different from the pass one nothing new on it except some much work when it come to find one of the Hell doorways, and how is happening all, and one or two surprises along the way.
there is much drama and revenge and death and compassion from Skyler ( compassion part is Skyler, hate and revenge would be Mimi and all that) but is sad that she left her best friend ( Oliver) behind and him to suffer so much i think is like about time for him to find a little of happiness in the story as much as Mimi, because so far Melissa de la cruz had stay in touch with more in the romantic life of Jack and Skyler and no so much in the other character or at least no as much.
a give it a good story to read and no to miss the next book.

Ecstasy in Darkness by Gena Showalter


" New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enthralls with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, powers beyond imagining, and a seductive vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. . . .
Growing up poor on New Chicago’s meanest streets, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator, or be the prey. No contest. Now, working for Alien Investigation and Removal, she’s been ordered to capture the biggest, baddest warrior of all—a vampire too beautiful to be real, with the ability to manipulate time. Once the leader of the entire vampire army, McKell has been deemed savage and unstable, spurned even by his own kind.
To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance. Yet the petite, golden-skinned Ava is a fascinating contradiction—vicious yet witty, strong yet vulnerable, lethal but fiercely loyal. Against his better judgment, McKell craves that loyalty, and much more. When the chase leads to seduction, McKell and Ava will race to discover the truth about his past. But the answers will come at a price, even for a woman who thought she had nothing left to lose. . . . "

Like always Gena Showalter bring to us a master piece, it was really fun to read and lot of action.

I think what i like about this series is that not only the heroin are strong but they are more that just what meet the eye, and everything start it with Mia and her lover.
For Gena Showalter all her book have something in common (she only have two series that i have read that are tell by the same person or characters). anyways they all have something or the body for it in common but they have something that even thou you know what is going to happen you kind find very interesting to see how they get there, and is very fun to read her book just to see what little turn and twist she is going to come up with, and also they always very funny to read.
this is book is full of sexual energy and is not only sexy but is also romantic, exotic, fantastic and there is so much action that you can get enough of it.
if you haven't read anything of Gena Showalter you have no idea what you are missing, she is great doing romance and the action into one and make it fun.
Love the book the story line ( plot) and the characters i can wait to read more about it and get to the other Character that haven't had there chance of love.

check her out

Magic at the Gate by Devon Monk

"Allie Beckstrom’s lover, Zayvion Jones, is a Guardian of the Gate, imbued with both light and dark magic and responsible for ensuring that those energies don’t mix. But Zayvion lies in a coma, his soul trapped in death’s realm. And when Allie discovers that the only way to save Zayvion is to sacrifice her very own magical essence, she makes a decision that may have grave consequences for the entire world."
For the 5Th book on the series, Devon Monk did a good job with it. I don't think is one of her best work on the story line but it was a good enough to pass my test.
In the other book or heroin has been a little in control of herself and other things but for this book she is not in control of anything, and everyone that she love and care about are in danger, she is still possess by her dead father but there is much more to the story because i think we are going to find out why she lose so much of her memory to start with.
With this one we only had a taste but i know there is more to this and the next book is going to be a eye opening for the story.
The war in this book is a little silly if you ask me but the reality is power make many people want more, and that is maybe what is going on in here.
the book was funny and it have very strong battle scene, and no only that but the mayor sacrifice that she is to do to save her lover life and soul.
over all the book was okay, i like it and all but it wasn't anything extraordinary, and i know Devon Monk can make that happen with her plot and her character, also i know that maybe this one is just the opening for the real battle to be fought between this groups.
let see what else this author does with this story and how many more book are going to be in this war, to tell the true maybe she can only go around this for so long maybe 3 book or 4 tops i don't think putting this war for more than that would be smart, we have to give sometime for the character to heal.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

"Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?"
Okay for the second book on the Hush Hush series, i have to say I'm very happy with it and the end of it is very shocking wise, i like the way Becca Fitzpatrick take something like Fallen angels and make it look so interesting the whole idea, she may have some work to do in some other part of the book but plot wise she is great at it.
know this book has so much mystery that i can get enough of it, and more important is the fact that there is so much work into it that you don't know what is going to happen next or what is she going to do, so it make it see much more real and interesting to read because you don't know what is next.
like most book has the impossible love thing going on, for it and i like it i mean it suck that they can be together but what make it good is that for this story they can't be together but they are in someway together.
i did enjoy reading this book a lot and even thou i put some stop to it before and I'm very happy i did it because once i start i new i wasn't going stop until i finish it.
I don't know what is going to happen in the next book and by the look at the end on Crescendo i know that is a good thing. so now i can wait to see and read it. okay I'm going to give a little spoiler here but just a little and i not say nothing that most haven't find out before hand.
here we go : we actually get to find out why Nora dad is kill and who did this.( his little spoiler is to let you know that the wait is over and at least that mystery around her is take Care).
so there you have it just a little taste of what is to happen, so be sure to check the book out because this series promise to be really good and make this whole love much richer than already is.
have fun and keep reading

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead


"The astonishing final novel in Richelle Mead's epic series!
Murder. Love. Jealousy. And the ultimate sacrifice. Now, with Rose on trial for her life and Lissa first in line for the Royal Throne, nothing will ever be the same between them."

Guys this story is as it very end, but yet it can always go on, i love the end even thou i was sad in some part and a little in shock with how kill the queen ( i don't think this a spoiler because if you reading this you already read the book before or at least i hope so) but over all a very happy ending.
This is the last book in the series, is the book when all or mostly all answer are answer to so many question, still they have more battle that they need to fight but i think they need a time to just stop and breath, maybe Richelle Mead in one or two years would write what is happening in there life in Rose world i guest.
well anyways aside of all the shock and all the turn and surprises that are along the way, i think the book was missing something, after the last book "Spirit Bound" been so powerful i just want it this one to be so, i guess it was is just didn't see like it because we knew everything have to work out at the very end i didn't know how but it did.
Richelle Mead still can write another book in this story i guess one or two i still want to know something but i guess it end a great point as well and i can alwasy wait.
it end just like something new just about to start and that is a great opening for her spins off series base on the same world but without Rose been telling the story.
this book is break-taking and is action scene just show how Richelle Mead doesn't compare to any other author out there, went it come to put or heroin trow hell to come out on top.
Last Sacrificed is just a example of that, and i think she is going to do a better job with her spin off series because this one was just a taste is was a experiment to see how far she can go and how far she can put the character and i think she did a great job and I have always think that her book are one of the best when it come to felling are show or are just there.
thank you Richelle Mead for giving us a very different tale of Vampire and so different from many other.

get your hand in this series last book

Venom by Jennifer Estep

"It’s hard to be a badass assas­sin when a giant is beat­ing the crap out of you. Luck­ily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My cur­rent mis­sion is per­sonal: anni­hi­late Mab Mon­roe, the Fire ele­men­tal who mur­dered my fam­ily. Which means pro­tect­ing my iden­tity, even if I have to con­ceal my pow­er­ful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most. To the pub­lic, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best bar­be­cue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spi­der, retired assas­sin. I still do favors on the side. Like rid­ding a vam­pire friend of her over­sized stalker—Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his mas­sive fists. At least irre­sistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detec­tive Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sis­ter was dead. She prob­a­bly thinks the same about me. Lit­tle does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer … who is about to save her life"
Jennifer Estep just out number herself with this one ( this book ), her book are some of a dark, mystery and full of blood kind of book, but this one in my opinion it really is one of the most powerful out all so far, this one really let the reader see how our heroin really is and a little more into how she want to be.
now that her long lost baby sister ( gin sister bria how she tough was dead), come back to the picture is just another step for Gin ( or heroin) to find out everything about who really kill her family all those year and all finger point in one direction Mab Monroe.but that is not only a suicide mission for Gin is also the only way to find the true and the why, of why she kill her family and save this new one.
as all Jennifer Estep for this series, she try to keep everything as real as possible when it come to who is Gin ( our Heroin) and those around her, and with the Detective gone is not wonder why she try to be more trueful with those around her, so if they want to go they can do it and she would be okay with.
i think that i love this book so much, is not because it have a strong heroin but because it make me think that maybe, just maybe no everyone that is a assassin is so because is a sick bastard that find pleasure in that, but because it was ether that or nothing.
so i love the background story of Gin and most of the character and i know that I'm going to love the next to book that are to come and i can wait to see, if this author can come out with something to top this series. don't forget that this series has a lot of blood and violence and sex in the mist.

Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep

"Curios­ity is def­i­nitely going to get me dead one of these days. Prob­a­bly real soon.
I’m Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spi­der, the most feared assas­sin in the South. I’m retired now, but trou­ble still has a way of find­ing me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my bar­be­cue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the bar­rage of gun­fire on the restau­rant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren’t aimed at me. They were meant for Vio­let Fox. Ever since I agreed to help Vio­let and her grand­fa­ther pro­tect their prop­erty from an evil coal-mining tycoon, I’m begin­ning to won­der if I’m really retired.
So is Detec­tive Dono­van Caine. The only hon­est cop in ash­land is hav­ing a real hard time rec­on­cil­ing his attrac­tion to me with his Boy Scount men­tal­ity. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I’m a Stone elemental—with a lit­tle Ice magic thrown in—but my heart isn’t made of solid rock. Luck­ily, Gin Blanco always gets her man … dead or alive."
Wow looking for a assassin to take care of your problems look no further here she is Gin Blanco, and she would do the job and not look back but can you pay her that is the question.
this book is amazing and in love with it, it has so much passion on it and, the end so sad and just can believe some of the thing that happen in this book and just to let you know this girl is a survive and i love it.
Our heroin is a very strong mind and just like her magic as strong as a rock and as cold as a ice, i think all the secret that are find in this book is something wort reading and i telling you just now you wont get enough of Gin Blanco aka The spider.
I have to say Jennifer Estep did a great job in this one she make everything walk the same direction and everything work perfectly i love how she can put someone new that would work or kill someone in the series i can wait to see what else is going to happen in this series i just hope she get her lover in the end she deserve it she has live to much and happiness is always something i like in books.

Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep

"My name is Gin, and I kill people.
They call me the Spi­der. I’m the most feared assas­sin in the South—when I’m not busy at the Pork Pit cook­ing up the best bar­be­cue in Ash­land. As a Stone ele­men­tal, I can hear every­thing from the whis­pers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibra­tions of the soar­ing Appalachian Moun­tains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for mak­ing the occa­sional knife. But I don’t use my pow­ers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it pro­fes­sional pride.
Now that a ruth­less Air ele­men­tal has double-crossed me and killed my han­dler, I’m out for revenge. And I’ll exter­mi­nate any­one who gets in my way—good or bad. I may look hot, but I’m still one of the bad guys. Which is why I’m in trou­ble, since irre­sistibly rugged Detec­tive Dono­van Caine has agreed to help me. The last thing this cold­hearted killer needs when I’m bat­tling a magic more pow­er­ful than my own is a sexy dis­trac­tion … espe­cially when Dono­van wants me dead just as much as the enemy."
I THINK I'M IN LOVE.... wow this story is so good, is like reading from Gena Showalter or Jeaniene Frost that are one of my favorite author to name some.
Jennifer Estep did a great job with this one, there is so much action so much mystery and so much passion with everything that happen that i could not get enough.
Like or main character is not a nice one or even a damsel in distress she is a fighter and she is a very cold and strong just like her magic, and why she is this way, well i just say that anyone would be come that cold to prevent been hurt again.
I'm in love with this book for once or heroin no take a no for a answer and she get what she want, even thou is not always in the nice of way but still i love the book.
i can get over how good it was and how so many people need to read it.
this book is-meet-sexy-hot-killer-plus-action-plus-lots of blood.
this book has it all romance, sex, passion, comedy, action and if i keep going is going to be a long night and i want to star reading book 2.
Jennifer Estep is a great author and once you start this story you are not going to want to stop, and the end is just as good as everything that happen this book has a great opening to it and i hope all the book are as good As this one or much more.

Last sacrifice by richelle mead chapter 1


I don't like cages.
I don't even like going to zoos. The first time I went to one, I almost had claustrophobic attacks looking at those poor animals. I couldn't imagine any creature living that way. Sometimes I even felt a little bad for criminals, condemned to life in a cell. I'd certainly never expected to spend my life in one.
But lately, life seemed to be throwing me a lot of things I'd never expected, because here I was, locked away.
"Hey!" I yelled, gripping the steel bars that isolated me from the world. "How long am I going to be here? When's my trial? You can't keep me in this dungeon forever!"
Okay, it wasn't exactly a dungeon, not in the dark, rusty-chain sense. I was inside a small cell with plain walls, a plain floor, and well. .. plain everything. Spotless. Sterile. Cold. It was actually more depressing than any musty dungeon could have managed. The bars in the doorway felt cool against my skin, hard and unyielding. Fluorescent lighting made the metal gleam in a way that seemed almost too cheerful for the setting. I could see the shoulder of a man standing rigidly to the side of the cell's entrance and knew there were probably four more guardians in the hallway out of my sight. I also knew none of them were going to answer me back, but that hadn't stopped me from constantly demanding answers from them for the last two days.
When the usual silence came, I sighed and slumped back on the cot in the cell's corner. Like everything else in my new home, the cot was colorless and stark. Yeah. I really was starting to wish I had a real dungeon. Rats and cobwebs would have at least given me something to watch. I stared upward and immediately had the disorienting feeling I always did in here: that the ceiling and walls were closing in around me. Like I couldn't breathe. Like the sides of the cell would keep coming toward me until no space remained, pushing out all the air. ..
I sat up abruptly, gasping. Don't stare at the walls and ceiling, Rose, I chastised myself. Instead, I looked down at my clasped hands and tried to figure out how I'd gotten into this mess.
The initial answer was obvious: someone had framed me for a crime I didn't commit. And it wasn't petty crime either. It was murder. They'd had the audacity to accuse me of the highest crime a Moroi or dhampir could commit. Now, that isn't to say I haven't killed before. I have. I've also done my fair share of rule (and even law) breaking. Cold-blooded murder, however, was not in my repertoire. Especially not the murder of a queen.
It was true Queen Tatiana hadn't been a friend of mine. She'd been the coolly calculating ruler of the Moroi—a race of living, magic-using vampires who didn't kill their victims for blood. Tatiana and I had had a rocky relationship for a number of reasons. One was me dating her great-nephew, Adrian. The other was my disapproval of her policies on how to fight off Strigoi: the evil, undead vampires who stalked us all. Tatiana had tricked me a number of times, but I'd never wanted her dead. Someone apparently had, however, and they'd left a trail of evidence leading right to me, the worst of which were my fingerprints all over the silver stake that had killed Tatiana. Of course, it was my stake, so naturally it'd have my fingerprints. No one seemed to think that was relevant.
I sighed again and pulled out a tiny crumpled piece of paper from my pocket. My only reading material. I squeezed it in my hand, having no need to look at the words. I'd long since memorized them. The note's contents made me question what I'd known about Tatiana. It had made me question a lot of things.
Frustrated with my own surroundings, I slipped out of them and into someone else's: my best friend Lissa's. Lissa was a Moroi, and we shared a psychic link, one that let me go to her mind and see the world through her eyes. All Moroi wielded some type of elemental magic. Lissa's was spirit, an element tied to psychic and healing powers. It was rare among Moroi, who usually used more physical elements, and we barely understood its abilities—which were incredible. She'd used spirit to bring me back from the dead a few years ago, and that's what had forged our bond.
Being in her mind freed me from my cage but offered little help for my problem. Lissa had been working hard to prove my innocence, ever since the hearing that had laid out all the evidence against me. My stake being used in the murder had only been the beginning. My opponents had been quick to remind everyone about my antagonism toward the queen and had also found a witness to testify about my whereabouts during the murder. That testimony had left me without an alibi. The Council had decided there was enough evidence to send me to a full-fledged trial—where I would receive my verdict.
Lissa had been trying desperately to get people's attention and convince them I'd been framed. She was having trouble finding anyone who would listen, however, because the entire Moroi Royal Court was consumed with preparations for Tatiana's elaborate funeral. A monarch's death was a big deal. Moroi and dhampirs—half-vampires like me—were coming from all over the world to see the spectacle. Food, flowers, decorations, even musicians. .. The full deal. If Tatiana had gotten married, I doubted the event would have been this elaborate. With so much activity and buzz, no one cared about me now. As far as most people were concerned, I was safely stashed away and unable to kill again. Tatiana's murderer had been found. Justice was served. Case closed.
Before I could get a clear picture of Lissa's surroundings, a commotion at the jail jerked me back into my own head. Someone had entered the area and was speaking to the guards, asking to see me. It was my first visitor in days. My heart pounded, and I leapt up to the bars, hoping it was someone who would tell me this had all been a horrible mistake.
My visitor wasn't quite who I'd expected.
"Old man," I said wearily. "What are you doing here?"
Abe Mazur stood before me. As always, he was a sight to behold. It was the middle of summer—hot and humid, seeing as we were right in the middle of rural Pennsylvania—but that didn't stop him from wearing a full suit. It was a flashy one, perfectly tailored and adorned with a brilliant purple silk tie and matching scarf that just seemed like overkill. Gold jewelry flashed against the dusky hue of his skin, and he looked like he'd recently trimmed his short black beard. Abe was a Moroi, and although he wasn't royal, he wielded enough influence to be.
He also happened to be my father.
"I'm your lawyer," he said cheerfully. "Here to give you legal counsel, of course."
"You aren't a lawyer," I reminded him. "And your last bit of advice didn't work out so well." That was mean of me. Abe—despite having no legal training whatsoever—had defended me at my hearing. Obviously, since I was locked up and headed for trial, the outcome of that hadn't been so great. But, in all my solitude, I'd come to realize that he'd been right about something. No lawyer, no matter how good, could have saved me at the hearing. I had to give him credit for stepping up to a lost cause, though considering our sketchy relationship, I still wasn't sure why he had. My biggest theories were that he didn't trust royals and that he felt fatherly obligation. In that order.
"My performance was perfect," he argued. "Whereas your compelling speech in which you said 'if I was the murderer' didn't do us any favors. Putting that image in the judge's head wasn't the smartest thing you could have done."
I ignored the barb and crossed my arms. "So what are you doing here? I know it's not just a fatherly visit. You never do anything without a reason."
"Of course not. Why do anything without a reason?"
"Don't start up with your circular logic."
He winked. "No need to be jealous. If you work hard and put your mind to it, you might just inherit my brilliant logic skills someday."
"Abe," I warned. "Get on with it."
"Fine, fine," he said. "I've come to tell you that your trial might be moved up."
"W-what? That's great news!" At least, I thought it was. His expression said otherwise. Last I'd heard, my trial might be months away. The mere thought of that—of being in this cell so long—made me feel claustrophobic again.
"Rose, you do realize that your trial will be nearly identical to your hearing. Same evidence and a guilty verdict."
"Yeah, but there must be something we can do before that, right? Find evidence to clear me?" Suddenly, I had a good idea of what the problem was. "When you say 'moved up,' how soon are we talking?"
"Ideally, they'd like to do it after a new king or queen is crowned. You know, part of the post-coronation festivities."
His tone was flippant, but as I held his dark gaze, I caught the full meaning. Numbers rattled in my head. "The funeral's this week, and the elections are right after. .. You're saying I could go to trial and be convicted in, what, practically two weeks?"
Abe nodded.
I flew toward the bars again, my heart pounding in my chest. "Two weeks? Are you serious?"
When he'd said the trial had been moved up, I'd figured maybe it was a month away. Enough time to find new evidence. How would I have pulled that off? Unclear. Now, time was rushing away from me. Two weeks wasn't enough, especially with so much activity at Court. Moments ago, I'd resented the long stretch of time I might face. Now, I had too little of it, and the answer to my next question could make things worse.
"How long?" I asked, trying to control the trembling in my voice. "How long after the verdict until they. .. carry out the sentence?"
I still didn't entirely know what all I'd inherited from Abe, but we seemed to clearly share one trait: an unflinching ability to deliver bad news.
"Probably immediately."
"Immediately." I backed up, nearly sat on the bed, and then felt a new surge of adrenaline. "Immediately? So. Two weeks. In two weeks, I could be. .. dead."
Because that was the thing—the thing that had been hanging over my head the moment it became clear someone had planted enough evidence to frame me. People who killed queens didn't get sent to prison. They were executed. Few crimes among Moroi and dhampirs got that kind of punishment. We tried to be civilized in our justice, showing we were better than the bloodthirsty Strigoi. But certain crimes, in the eyes of the law, deserved death. Certain people deserved it, too—say, like, treasonous murderers. As the full impact of the future fell upon me, I felt myself shake and tears come dangerously close to spilling out of my eyes.
"That's not right!" I told Abe. "That's not right, and you know it!"
"Doesn't matter what I think," he said calmly. "I'm simply delivering the facts."
"Two weeks," I repeated. "What can we do in two weeks? I mean. .. you've got some lead, right? Or. .. or. .. you can find something by then? That's your specialty." I was rambling and knew I sounded hysterical and desperate. Of course, that was because I felt hysterical and desperate.
"It's going to be difficult to accomplish much," he explained. "The Court's preoccupied with the funeral and elections. Things are disorderly—which is both good and bad."
I knew about all the preparations from watching Lissa. I'd seen the chaos already brewing. Finding any sort of evidence in this mess wouldn't just be difficult. It could very well be impossible.
Two weeks. Two weeks, and I could be dead.
"I can't," I told Abe, my voice breaking. "I'm not. .. meant to die that way."
"Oh?" He arched an eyebrow. "You know how you're supposed to die?"
"In battle." One tear managed to escape, and I hastily wiped it away. I'd always lived my life with a tough image. I didn't want that shattering, not now when it mattered most of all. "In fighting. Defending those I love. Not. .. not through some planned execution."
"This is a fight of sorts," he mused. "Just not a physical one. Two weeks is still two weeks. Is it bad? Yes. But it's better than one week. And nothing's impossible. Maybe new evidence will turn up. You simply have to wait and see."
"I hate waiting. This room. .. it's so small. I can't breathe. It'll kill me before any executioner does."
"I highly doubt it." Abe's expression was still cool, with no sign of sympathy. Tough love. "You've fearlessly fought groups of Strigoi, yet you can't handle a small room?"
"It's more than that! Now I have to wait each day in this hole, knowing there's a clock ticking down to my death and almost no way to stop it."
"Sometimes the greatest tests of our strength are situations that don't seem so obviously dangerous. Sometimes surviving is the hardest thing of all."
"Oh. No. No." I stalked away, pacing in small circles. "Do not start with all that noble crap. You sound like Dimitri when he used to give me his deep life lessons."
"He survived this very situation. He's surviving other things too."
I took a deep breath, calming myself before I answered. Until this murder mess, Dimitri had been the biggest complication in my life. A year ago—though it seemed like eternity—he'd been my instructor in high school, training me to be one of the dhampir guardians who protect Moroi. He'd accomplished that—and a lot more. We'd fallen in love, something that wasn't allowed. We'd managed it as best we could, even finally coming up with a way for us to be together. That hope had disappeared when he'd been bitten and turned Strigoi. It had been a living nightmare for me. Then, through a miracle no one had believed possible, Lissa had used spirit to transform him back to a dhampir. But things unfortunately hadn't quite returned to how they'd been before the Strigoi attack.
I glared at Abe. "Dimitri survived this, but he was horribly depressed about it! He still is. About everything."
The full weight of the atrocities he'd committed as a Strigoi haunted Dimitri. He couldn't forgive himself and swore he could never love anyone now. The fact that I had begun dating Adrian didn't help matters. After a number of futile efforts, I'd accepted that Dimitri and I were through. I'd moved on, hoping I could have something real with Adrian now.
"Right," Abe said dryly. "He's depressed, but you're the picture of happiness and joy."
I sighed. "Sometimes talking to you is like talking to myself: pretty damned annoying. Is there any other reason you're here? Other than to deliver the terrible news? I would have been happier living in ignorance."
I'm not supposed to die this way. I'm not supposed to see it coming. My death is not some appointment penciled in on a calendar.
He shrugged. "I just wanted to see you. And your arrangements."
Yes, he had indeed, I realized. Abe's eyes had always come back to me as we spoke; there'd been no question I held his attention. There was nothing in our banter to concern my guards. But every so often, I'd see Abe's gaze flick around, taking in the hall, my cell, and whatever other details he found interesting. Abe had not earned his reputation as zmey—the serpent—for nothing. He was always calculating, always looking for an advantage. It seemed my tendency toward crazy plots ran in the family.
"I also wanted to help you pass the time." He smiled and from under his arm, he handed me a couple of magazines and a book through the bars. "Maybe this will improve things."
I doubted any entertainment was going to make my two-week death countdown more manageable. The magazines were fashion and hair oriented. The book was The Count of Monte Cristo. I held it up, needing to make a joke, needing to do anything to make this less real.
"I saw the movie. Your subtle symbolism isn't really all that subtle. Unless you've hidden a file inside it."
"The book's always better than the movie." He started to turn away. "Maybe we'll have a literary discussion next time."
"Wait." I tossed the reading material onto the bed. "Before you go. .. in this whole mess, no one's ever brought up who actually did kill her." When Abe didn't answer right away, I gave him a sharp look. "You do believe I didn't do it, right?" For all I knew, he did think I was guilty and was just trying to help anyway. It wouldn't have been out of character.
"I believe my sweet daughter is capable of murder," he said at last. "But not this one."
"Then who did it?"
"That," he said before walking away, "is something I'm working on."
"But you just said we're running out of time! Abe!" I didn't want him to leave. I didn't want to be alone with my fear. "There's no way to fix this!"
"Just remember what I said in the courtroom," he called back.
He left my sight, and I sat back on the bed, thinking back to that day in court. At the end of the hearing, he'd told me—quite adamantly—that I wouldn't be executed. Or even go to trial. Abe Mazur wasn't one to make idle promises, but I was starting to think that even he had limits, especially since our timetable had just been adjusted.
I again took out the crumpled piece of paper and opened it. It too had come from the courtroom, covertly handed to me by Ambrose—Tatiana's servant and boy toy.
If you're reading this, then something terrible has happened. You probably hate me, and I don't blame you. I can only ask that you trust that what I did with the age decree was better for your people than what others had planned. There are some Moroi who want to force all dhampirs into service, whether they want it or not, by using compulsion. The age decree has slowed that faction down.
However, I write to you with a secret you must put right, and it is a secret you must share with as few as possible. Vasilisa needs her spot on the Council, and it can be done. She is not the last Dragomir. Another lives, the illegitimate child of Eric Dragomir. I know nothing else, but if you can find this son or daughter, you will give Vasilisa the power she deserves. No matter your faults and dangerous temperament, you are the only one I feel can take on this task. Waste no time in fulfilling it.
—Tatiana Ivashkov
The words hadn't changed since the other hundred times I'd read them, nor had the questions they always triggered. Was the note true? Had Tatiana really written it? Had she—in spite of her outwardly hostile attitude—trusted me with this dangerous knowledge? There were twelve royal families who made decisions for the Moroi, but for all intents and purposes, there might as well have only been eleven. Lissa was the last of her line, and without another member of the Dragomir family, Moroi law said she had no power to sit on and vote with the Council that made our decisions. Some pretty bad laws had already been made, and if the note was true, more would come. Lissa could fight those laws—and some people wouldn't like that, people who had already demonstrated their willingness to kill.
Another Dragomir.
Another Dragomir meant Lissa could vote. One more Council vote could change so much. It could change the Moroi world. It could change my world—say, like, whether I was found guilty or not. And certainly, it could change Lissa's world. All this time she'd believed she was alone. Yet. .. I uneasily wondered if she'd welcome a half-sibling. I accepted that my father was a scoundrel, but Lissa had always held hers up on a pedestal, believing the best of him. This news would come as a shock, and although I'd trained my entire life to keep her safe from physical threats, I was starting to think there were other things she needed to be protected from as well.
But first, I needed the truth. I had to know if this note had really come from Tatiana. I was pretty sure I could find out, but it involved something I hated doing.
Well, why not? It wasn't like I had anything else to do right now.
Rising from the bed, I turned my back to the bars and stared at the blank wall, using it as a focus point. Bracing myself, remembering that I was strong enough to keep control, I released the mental barriers I always subconsciously kept around my mind. A great pressure lifted from me, like air escaping a balloon.
And suddenly, I was surrounded by ghosts.

Ghost Town by Rachel Cain

Once inside you can never can get out....

"While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders. But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are-even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment- before she forgets how to save Morganville..."

Okay guys just finish reading Ghost Town and i have to say that i think this is my favorite book in the hall series so far.
for some reason i like this book more that any other in the series, is a little cheeses in some parts but them, thinking that everyone is losing there mind and forgetting thinks, is very difficult to work with ( when you play with memories you have to know what is going to stay and what is not).
I don't know, there is something in the book, that they really didn't get to discuss and that was why some people lost there memory faster that other and why get like moments and them just forget everything but some of it was say in some way or explain i guess.
the Plot in some of the pass book has been very easy or actually safe excepted for the last book and this one. the plots are very easy to explain and to get to the point but for this one and the last book there plots took a very unique turn, and to find that one day you remember but the next day you don't is something difficult no only to write but to actually explain.
Rachel Caine i have to give it to her did a great job with this book and i love it, i think in the future I'm going to read her other series but so far nothing on it.
like in the other book our main character are put to a new test and they as always find a way out of it.
so in this one, one of my favorite character goes from crazy to plain evil but i still love him even as evil. over all the book was perfect and i like that she did something out of the box and not very safe, because when you play with memories in book sometimes that doesn't work very well for everyone but congratulation to Rachel because she make it work and this Vampire book just stand out.

get your hand into this memory land a pick a copy

Have fun and keep reading.

Hauted by Your Touch by Jeaniene Frost

Been touch by a demon was never this different.....

"Enter the dark realm of Nocturna in Jeaniene Frost’s red-hot tale, where blisteringly sexy Raphael dominates the demons of a lawless dimension and tries to help a beautiful young woman avenge her cousin’s disappearance. Shayla Black’s gorgeous Doomsday Brethren hero, Raiden, vows to fight for his magical lover and their unborn youngling—no matter the cost—after he drives her into the arms of another man and she falls under attack. Lycans rule the night in Sharie Kohler’s suspenseful story, as a fiery woman stalks mysterious Luc, the undeniably hypnotic being she believes can save her from turning . . . if she kills him. Danger beckons in these captivating paranormal tales that will tempt readers to the edge and leave them begging for more. "

Okay this short story is something new from Jeaniene Frost usual work, but is fun to see that she can do something different, and not only Vampire.
I think many of us have ask her the same question, but thankfully she is always glad to answer this for us,( she always have ideas out side Vampire and she just prove it) maybe in the future she has the chance to actually give this romance a book a chance or maybe another, but who knows, we have to wait and see.
I always love her stories lines and I always love that she can keep me reading even thou i know is going to be very short and I'm going keep wanting more.
Anyways for this story you have your usual love and your heroin that has the strong will to fight for what she want and need, and is a very sexy and passioned story but she have to move thing a little faster that she would normally do but it works.
Love the book and if you don't like vamps and that why you haven't give her a chance this would be the best opportunity to do so.

Bite Marks by Jennifer Rardin

surely you could think of other uses for them?.....

"Jaz is possessed. After biting the neck of a domyter during a forced visit to his territory, she now has unwelcome voices in her head. While fighting for supremacy in her own mind, she finds herself confronted with a near-impossible task: perform perfectly on her next mission or face the unemployment line"

I Like it!! it was a good story line, and i like the fact that our main character always find a way to laugh even worse situations.
One of my favorite character is Cole just because he can always smile about anything and everything at the same time, so for me this book was one of the funnies one.
Now i have say it before but i think is need to be say again,this books and this one is not exception, have to much going on in the same book is like to much and to little time to put it all out, that make the reader go crazy i think the next one is not going to have this much even thou it works at the end, is just a lot to take in when you are reading this book.
I still like it and i love that our heroin is so strong even thou she doesn't see it that way, but when you get to learn more about why is she like this you see that over all she is a human been or something like that.
In this book there is more a stake and much more that meet the eye with Jaz possess by a domyter, and she find out how is it the mysterious person that possess her, she is in for more trouble that she been in before.
Vayl and the gang are always working together in a way that make them seen like they work together for many year when in reality is not been that long, but i t work for this book so much that is easy to see the work Jennifer Rardin put in the work of each book, her passion as well when she does it, and when you the reader see this you always know that the book always has something extra to work for them.
I think Jaz's dog is soon going to be show for what he is, and why he previews owner would love the dog more that anything else, i hope to find that out soon.
I can wait to see what else this author come up with because i like to see what she would do next.
the next book is out and i hope and i can wait to see what would happen in it.

Jeaniene Frost NEWS

New book news!

I’m typing this as I wait at the train station in New York after having a wonderful time at ComiCon (look for another post with pictures and details about that later, but I simply couldn’t wait to share this news). Remember how I’ve not-so-subtly hinted on this blog and in other places that I really, really would like to write books on Vlad? And how I had more plot in my head than novels contracted for Cat and Bones’s storyline, so I wasn’t sure if I’d end the Night Huntress series at book seven like I’d originally intended?

Pretend you remember me saying those things, even if you don’t.

Well, I am thrilled to announce that I will be writing two more novels for the Night Huntress series, ending Cat and Bones’s storyline now at book nine instead of seven. AND, if that wasn’t enough to make my day, I am also contracted to write the first two books in a new series featuring – you guessed it – Vlad as the hero and a new character named Leila as the heroine.

I am SO excited about the opportunity to extend Cat and Bones’s storyline into nine books so I can implement the plans I have for them, instead of cutting things out to squeeze everything into seven books. Plus, anyone who’s spoken to me for longer than five minutes knows I’ve been itching to showcase Vlad in his own books, and I’ve got just the heroine to give Mr. Hot Hands a run for his money that he’ll never be expecting. Right now the tentative plan is for the first Vlad and Leila novel to release in 2012. 2011 will see the releases of the fifth Cat and Bones novel titled This Side of the Grave, Cat and Bones 6 (untitled as of now), and the holiday-themed anthology I’ll be in with Lynsay Sands that will also feature and Cat and Bones story (untitled as of now). My publisher and I are not sure if Vlad’s new stories will be called Night Huntress World, or something else since it’s the start of a new recurring-character series. More data on that once I have it.

Daugther of Darknes by V.C. Andrews


"When I was a little girl, Daddy told me never to fear the dark. 'We exist because of the darkness,' he told me. 'All of you are daughters of darkness.' Beloved bestselling author V.C. Andrews's passion for vampires comes to spellbinding life in a long-awaited novel of dark desires as all-consuming - and forbidden - as in Flowers in the Attic. One night, with the sound of a young man's scream, high school senior Lorelei discovers that her stern but loving father, who adopted Lorelei and her sisters as infants, is no ordinary man. He has raised his beautiful girls for one purpose: to lure young men into their world of shadows. Like her sisters, Lorelei has been trained in the art of seduction and warned never to fall in love. But when she meets a handsome and charming classmate, she boldly defies her family and follows her heart - even if love is a poison. . . .Dangerously enticing and deliriously intoxicating, V.C. Andrews's Daughter of Darkness will leave readers thirsting for more"

This is my little of the road book, this book i actually found it by mistake, when i was looking for something else to read. guess where i was? Walmart!! i know crazy but there i was and i actually found this book, and thought it was a good idea to read, also i have hear about this author before but never actually read anything just yet, but now i can say i have and she is really good at it.

The first thing that you thing the moment you start this book is not Vampire again, but them as you continued to read you find that vampire are boring compared with this story that is so full of mystery around more mystery with a top of more mystery and sex.

this story is actually very interesting not only because you not sure of what is to happen next, and why so many of the thing happen anyways, is funny when i was reading it i could not wait to understand the book because it has so much mystery that even when she actually tell everything, you think that there is much more that need to be say.

I actually though that everyone was going to die!! that little i knew, of what was next but the end of this book is something that i didn't expect and in some way knew.

V.C. Andrews knows what she is doing and it show how long she been wringing this kind of story because the suspense is so intense and interesting that it keep me in sit until the very end.

this book has almost everything, i like action but this book didn't actually need it, so it get a pass for me, but is full of romance, sex and mystery that is always a plus when you know nothing of the next step that is to come in any book.

If you looking for something to read look no further this is what you need and if you like mystery this is just the best thing you would find.

One more Bite by Jennifer Rardin

Them you should ask your neighbor in the morning.....

"Jaz and Vayl have been assigned to travel to Inverness to prevent an assassination that has the potential to upset the balance between the west coast vampire nests and allow another Raptor to emerge. In the power vacuum left by Edward “the Raptor” Samos’ death, a struggle for supremacy has begun between his former allies: The Coven of Inverness, the Valencian Weres and The Flock. The struggle takes on a new twist when Pete learns that the Valencians have hired an assassin to take out the Coven’s leader, a powerful witch named Floraidh Halsey. Jaz and Vayl must stalk a killer as wily and Gifted as themselves as they travel through the wild, stark beauty of the Highlands. Their travels also bring new heights to their romance, a new depth to their passion, and a bond they are both, at last, willing to seal."

For some reason i like books that when the author tent to make the reader wait for something to happen so long and them in the end just make that moment just there in your face but no what you want but what is need it for the story.

I like it and Jennifer Rardin know what she is doing, i have to give her that much but come on, i want to see a little more of Vayl and Jaz moment together because they don't have much of those in the series and when they do is so little that i want more, but she only show you so far.
her story is one of my fave, because of the way she make you see the bad and good of people and having a character that job is to kill people no for the right reason but for the need of.
I think what i like more about this series that she is not your usual heroin and that her story of why she became like that is something very interesting, and very frightened that even thou is was very bad on her, it help her grow to become the woman that she is in the series ( you may thing different that many other character have strong background too, but i think her is unique for me).
the not-stop-action-meet-romance series is something once you start you won't stop and you would find yourself in need to find everything this little heroin would come up with.

Bitten to Death by Jennifer Rardin


"Jaz Parks and her vampire boss, Vayl, have already fought demons, vampires, and reavers. Now, juggling work and family takes on a new dimension as she tackles her latest challenge: nail the Raptor before he can reduce her to Jaz-bits, survive a head-on crash with Vayl’s violent past, and lever her twin’s military career back on track before a dishonorable discharge ruins his life. To top it off, she must also contend with her father’s issues. Is he losing his mind? Or is someone really trying to kill him – from beyond the grave"

I LIKE IT!!!!!.
I always like book when our heroin does something so crazy, that show her feelings to everyone that when she notice what she has done she looking for a way to explain her self finding there is none.
This book is intense no intense as the one before, but is equal intense because she is become more and more aware of Vayl and that even though she does not want to, because silly reason she still manage to do something to push them 1 step apart and 2 more close.
Also we get to see a little more of Vayl pass is very interesting if you ask me, and it need to be because he been alive for so long, that is do to have some crazy thing going on for him but now he has Jaz that come with a new game plan to put his pass in shame.
I enjoy the book a lot, and because the plot of this books are so different to a point it make it fun to read. Of course as i say before Jennifer Rardin has so much thing going on that is easy to get lost in the book, but them she always make it work that you end up understanding everything that is going on.
For this book insanity play a mayor role, because with everything that has happen to Jaz ( dying 2 times, losing her fiancé, and her entire group of friends, plus them killing his brother wife and best friend, to lose her twin after that) i think is a lot to take but she has manage to no try to kill herself and to work with what she got.
Jaz and Vayl romance is growing on his on but she still doesn't want to give in to it, she is scare of it and because of that she keep doing things that she is not support to do. Also this love of them look pretty real to me, because they don't jump to it in the first book is there but is more that fiscal and they getting to that point where they going to be with each other but at there time no the reader time, but it help that Jennifer let them kiss so we the reader are into it more. this story is a action-meet-killer-sexy-vamps-and-out-of-this-world-romance. Jennifer Rardin knows what she is doing and how she is doing it,she is not coping anyone and she doing what she want with her plot, that way she is keep me and the reader guessing, what is going to happen next and i can wait to find out.

Biting the Bullet by Jennifer Rardin

I am hitting back......

"The Raptor, the CIA’s longtime nemesis, is back. Jaz Parks and her vampire boss Vayl are asked to join her brother David’s special ops team to take him down. But when her spirit guide tells her that she’s being lead to the wrong man, and she starts asking the wrong questions, her life — and her job–> are threatened. And the one person who can help her–her boss– is off on a wild goose chase. Add to the mix a pack of reavers bent on revenge along with a small army of desert monsters, and BITING THE BULLET will take you so close to the edge of your seat you may want to leave a pillow on the floor just in case."

first, i sorry no to have post in so long but i have little time but i going try to make it a time line to post every 1 at the least once a week, Hope for more but we just have to wait and see.

anyways Biting the Bullet book 3 on this series i like it, a little of mystery and lot of killing and action in every way at once.

of course as i say before some of her book has so much going on that is easy to get lost with them, but i think for this one it work, for the other has as well but this one everything goes more in the same direction to the same goal.

Jaz is a very strong character but even thou she fight and kill and don't even blink when she does, she haven't lost her humanity or what make her see the difference between good and evil because she see the big picture, she may be a very different kind of heroin but she is one no the least, her passion for what she does make her one in the kind and make the book more passionate because she does believe what she is doing is the right thing to do, in the big picture saving Innocent lives.

for this book we see more of those feeling that she has growing for Vayl, and she also set no to feel, because he is after all her boss after all. I can wait for the romance to start between these two, because i know she is a very powerful woman so i guess the fight and makeup are one to look for.

we have some other thing going on in this book and most important the fact that her and her twin finally resolve some of the troubles, and i like how the interact with each other, also there is her ex out there i think he is going to come back but not like he was or something between the line is going to go there.

I actually found this book fun to read even though is one of the most intense on the series so far i think. no only because her feeling come out and play with her for this one even thou she try hard to hide them they still come out to play.

Another One Bites the Duat by Jennifer Rardin


"Jaz Parks has enough trouble in her personal life. What she doesn't need is more trouble with her vampire boss and another mission. This time she has to retrieve a vital piece of biotechnology by killing the maniac who stole it: an ancient Chinese vamp. Their cover in this mission: professional entertainers at the Corpus Christi's Winter Festival. The crew's all here: a psychic, a techno-wizard, a singing vampire, a juggling PI, and Jaz. Holy crap in a bottomless well, Jaz is going to bellydance. It's definitely, probably, quite possibly going to be the end of the world as we know it."

It took me longer to read this book, but no because it wasn't any good on the contrary i want it to read more of it but i was a little busy ( friend in town ).
So anyway for what it count i finish it, and I'm very happy about it and i can wait to read the next book.
Book two on the series "Another One Bites the Dust on Jaz Parks series" it was something a little more info on the main character Jaz and her many personalities!!! even though she is suicide in this book is quite good. but i think the author try to put this guilt into the mist so she would be vulnerable to the reader ( make her more likable, as well as strong a very balance thing) but she didn't get it were she want it to be ( I think) , i think she does a good job trying thou, anyways the author try to put so much thing going on that in the end is to much for the reader to follow, but i give it to her in the first book " Once Bitten Twice Shy", i did love to know what happen to her ( when she lost her lover and partners) and she used a little of mystery to show you what happen to her before the fight even start, that make it really good to read it and you are mostly the whole time wanting to know. i think she try that in this one but didn't actually get it there, may be she want to let the character grow just a little more or stop feeling so guilty we just have to keep reading and see.
I want so action between the Vayl and her i think they would work together ( as in Lovers) and mostly because he is so put together and she is so not.
the book over all work on it self, is something well done and eve though it has been done many time over ( vampire are very much out there now) she make it look unique and one of a kind.
the plot and character are fun and as i say unique this is a very dark, kill-to-be- read and in your face.
so if you don't want to become part of this story don't start because if you start you won't want to stop.

get your hand on this series

Once Bitten Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin

She is a new kind of assistant......

"I’m Jaz Parks. My boss is Vayl, born in Romania in 1744. Died there too, at the hand of his vampire wife, Liliana. But that’s ancient history. For the moment Vayl works for the C.I.A. doing what he does best–assassination. And I help. You could say I’m an Assistant Assassin. But then I’d have to kick your ass.
Our current assignment seemed easy. Get close to a Miami plastic surgeon named Assan, a charmer with ties to terrorism that run deeper than a buried body. Find out what he’s meeting with that can help him and his comrades bring America to her knees. And then close his beady little eyes forever. Why is it that nothing’s ever as easy as it seems?"

Jennifer Rardin brigs to us the most amazing Vamp novel in a long time ( that i have read because there are some series that are very good on the subject), and Miami is the city for it.
I like this story line and the plot is great by in self and is also very dangerous one ( the plot)because one you start you wont stop.
This novel is a very heart racing story line and i think what we found about it and what the author give us is little, but a lot at the same time, to make the reader crazy to read more.
Jaz or main character is a very strong woman and very sarcastic at that too. because she fight death as much as she does she get to know her weakness and she fight that as much of the bad guys.
And now is love in the rise after losing her, we know it going to take some time for her to let herself go but even as she does memories are very hard to fight.
this story is a most read and a most have. If you haven't read it you have no idea what your missing out, so stop watching TV and get your hand dirty with this book.

have fun and keep reading

Torment by Lauren Kate

When the love of your life go back past life you can help to want to know all.......

Lucinda is sure that she and Daniel are meant to be together forever. Now they are forced apart in a desperate bid to save Luce from the Outcasts–immortals who want her dead. As she discovers more about her past lives, Luce starts to suspect that Daniel is hiding something. What if he has lied to her about their shared past? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?"

The very anticipated series Fallen by Lauren Kate is here and i think it was worth the wait, Torment is just wonderful.
the book is a little slow at the beginning but as always, have the potential to make you wait for the very end.
Lauren kate bring to this one new characters, new Foes, and new allies.
this book is full of secrets and some we know some we don't but see Luce find things like that and her concussion bring to mind that if you get to see your pass life you would be like that and mostly because you get to watch yourself die "IN THE NAME OF LOVE".
Luce i didn't get her action much at first in the this book, but them i kind of understand her, she didn't know what was going on ( even when Daniel only told her some of the thing and not much, that maker her seek answer else where) and to only do what someone tell you just because they have know you from pass lives is just no that easy.
we going to finally know how they meet or at least i hope so and all that they meet to be together is how they stay that way, after the true come out is what going to make this romantic novel to come true.

is you believe in love check this book

have fun and keep reading

Alpha by Richel Vincent

The End has Come and only one would come on top.....


The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc, and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder, and treason. Yeah, we’ve been busy. But now it’s time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother’s death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.
It’s not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I’m heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever. "

Stop!!! the end has come....and not is the end of the world, is the end of Rachel vincent were cats, a very hard core story where love, treason goes in the same hand but loyalty as well and many are put to question.
this book is so heart breaking from beginning to end ( i want it something more for the end thou) i think I'm not very good when it come with the end of anything NO book, NO TV series, NO nothing i just always want something better as a end or i just don't like it, well some i do but i always want more on some point.
when it come to this book i knew i was going to cry a lot, this is one of those book that when they are in a passion it sense you are full of passion as well you become part of the book and the character life and if you are in a sense where crying is the only thing you can do well you cry ( i cry like a baby).
this story line is unique in it own words, only thing is that nothing they do actually work for them
( the good guys) but it suck in a way that only in the end is that something good happen and i think maybe that would really been like that in real life ( is not like they exits or anything i know i just think) i guess everything was bad, bad and more worse and even them things where bad, but the end make everything come out and even thou they lose so many love one in the completed story line is still i want to know a little more about them maybe in the future she does a short story about Marc and Fay, but you never know what would a author do.
For the end of a series i think came in the right moment and it let you know that it would continued to move just is not going to be there any writing words.
Congratulation to Rachel Vincent with the end of her series no all author get that chance or even to start one. Rachel Vincent is good in making new Worlds and bringing big emotions sense to the play so if by chance you finish this series and want to read more of hers book check her My Soul To Take novels.

have you and keep reading

Sin Undone by Larissa Ione

“There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.”
—George Carlin

As the only female Seminus demon ever born, master assassin Sinead Donnelly is used to being treated like an outcast. She spent decades enslaved, and now vows she’ll die before she’ll relinquish her freedom again. Then Sin’s innate ability to kill her enemies goes awry: She creates a lethal new werewolf virus that sparks a firestorm of panic and violence.

Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she’s no stranger: He’s bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld’s most wanted and Con soon learns he’s the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own."

A Masterpiece come true, just the most fascinating book of the year, for every book she "Larissa Ione" make you want more and more.
A wicked and exhilarating ride full of provocative and arousing love scenes and intense physical and emotional encounters that left me beyond a doubt captivated from beginning to end.
Don't know if the last book on the series but i hope is not, is one of those story you can get enough of.
Sin is a very strong character and one of a kind for it. and Con is just as fun as her.
I think for a book end it does a great job i just want more a more of it.
Sin Undone make the sins come out and play and there story are so strong that once you go there, there is no way to stop reading and this Series has become on one of my favorite books and she as a author has make the best of it, i have to read more of her work because is this story line was a stop raising one I'm sure the other would be as well.

have fun and keep reading

Ecstasy Unveiled by Larissa Ione

He who does not see the angels and devils in the
beauty and malice of life will be far removed from
knowledge, and his spirit will be empty of affection.
--Kahlil Gibran

"A Demon Enslaved…

Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master’s assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister’s life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he’ll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.

An Angel Tempted…

Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She’s determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary—even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.
Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again—hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction."

Warning! Read at your own risk. Highly addictive. Larissa Ione takes her already well-crafted and unique demon world to new heights.
The sex is darker, hotter, and wonderfully erotic; the vengeful enemy is demon make as a fun play, and the story line is unique. Ione is a master at creating tortured, sexy bad boys who are full of flaws and make you melt.
with her for book on the story line it let the Reading wanting more and more and now that the very hateful Roag ( there brother ) is finally dead and not out to do more damage to them i very happy to see the plot come as it is.
we don't know how many more book this series going to have ( but thing look like a 5 story but she can always used the little one) but this sexy character are one in a kind and i love them as much as the series. Before i want it to compare Larissa Ione with other author but to tell the true she doesn't compare to no one this book make you addictive and this one is not a exertion , as you have to know the romance is there, and much more because every time you read this series you are in for a ride of your life.
the main character are powerful and more intense that they one before them, and even as they fight they make love to each other and they fight some more against there love and what make them love each other but at they always find that they can fight against something that in there already.

don't miss out of the fun here the link
