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.
have fun and keep reading

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

have fun and keep reading

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.
have fun and keep reading

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

have fun and keep reading

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.
have fun and keep reading

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.
have fun and keep reading
