Lover Awakened by J. R. Ward


"In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.
Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her"

Wow i don't have many world for this book, it was that good.

J. R. Ward just out did herself.
the bad guys, wow like in the other book has been a normal evil one but for this one he came back from the dead many times for his woman and the thing is the crazy he was the better it work for the book!!!!

this book has that crazy factor and is funny because this is Zsadist's story, the scare one the i don't care one, and is the thing is he is the one that care the most in this book and is the one that change the most and is just wonderful, he is a great character and i think fan of the series can agree in this one with me.

This story so far is my favorite, only bad thing is that it has to much tragedy but what is a book without it, but i think this author is going to make everything work and some point for all this characters.

Revenge play a lot in this book and learning how to grow and let the pain go.

so the think about this book is that there is much going on and so many people that have been hurt and they don't know how to deal with that but they learned how to or at least end up trying.
i like the book way to much and no only because i finally get to understand him and why he is like he is, you may think you know someone but the thing is there is way to much that they just don't know and that can change the story line of the book.
have fun and keep reading

Lover Eternal by J. R. Ward

"In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Possessed by a deadly beast, Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...
Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover—for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.
Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships, is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. Her faith in miracles was lost years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…"
Book two on the fabulous story on the The black dagger Brotherhood, i like it, i even cry with this one.
this one is basically the sacrificed that you are willing to do for someone that you love.
this book series is good at first didn't want to get to it, because i never though it was going to be any good, but I was very wrong about it, it was excellent. one thing i notice on the two first books that i didn't write in the last review, is we never get to really know about the curse that they have, so i think that is important for that to be out there and i think she does it with THE BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD: AN INSIDER'S GUIDE, "You’ll find insider information on the Brotherhood, their dossiers, stats and special gifts. You’ll read interviews with your favorite characters, including a heartbreaking one with Tohrment and Wellsie, conducted three weeks before she was killed by lessers. You’ll encounter deleted scenes—accompanied by the whys behind the cuts—in addition to exciting material from the J.R. Ward message boards and the answers to questions posed by readers about the series. You’ll learn what it’s like for J.R. Ward to write each installment of the series, and in a fascinating twist, you’ll read an interview with the author—conducted by the Brothers. For the first time ever, you’ll get an original short story about Zsadist and Bella and see the miracle of their daughter Nalla's birth and the depth of their love for each other. Also, you’ll get a sneak peek at the much anticipated next book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Revenge’s story."
i like this story is so cute and wonderfully, the beast and the sacrificed that goes on is cool and this book has that a lot.
J. R. Ward has a great way to put the book together and is just has to put this out there I'm in love with her take in this vampire because she doesn't make them perfect far from that actually, she actually make them, something more real without been real, more human without been human,more deadly without been cold killers and much.

Dark Lover by J. R Ward

"In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There also exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Among them, none relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...
The only purebred vampire left on the planet, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But when one of his most trusted fighters is killed- orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate - Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead…Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn't there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood frighten her. But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens to consume them both…"
Wow for the first book on this story line, it was pretty cool, and it give a little of info but no much.
someone some time back told me to read this series that it was really good and i would love it, and right about now that i took the time i think i just agree and i can believe it took me so long, this book is really good, i like all the character are fun to read and there so mysterious, dangerous, sexy, lethal, funny and loyal that is very important there very loyal to each other.
the opening of the book is very confusion because this book is tell by many speakers, so you have to read carefully to get the first part of it, once you have that you good to go.
the drama of the book is actually pretty cool, because J. R. Wards is using hate as a motive, vengeance for those they have lost and blood to put it all together, is actually fun to read really.
in here there enemies are a little different from your normal one but is something new so i actually like it, when i find a good villain i always give it to the author.
the plot was good, the character are excellent, and each character goes with the story perfectly is like they are one and the same, even thou they have different personality and way to see everything I'm very sure when the author write the book she didn't see how well her character complement each other after she was finish. she did a great job with all of them.
here or main character is blind and i have to say is the first time i read of a vamp that can see well and is actually really cool, and is definitely something new and i like that when you find something new in something that has been write a lot and giving it, a new little twist.
have fun and keep reading

Mercy Blade by Faith Hunter

"Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker − and a vampire killer for hire. But lately she’s found herself taking blood money from the very vampires she used to hunt... Things are heating up in the Big Easy. Weres have announced their existence tot he world, and revived the bitter tensions that run between them and their old enemies: vampires. As a trusted employee of Leo Pellissier, Blood Master of the City, Jane finds herself caught in the cross fire. When Jane is attacked by a pack of marauding were-wolves, she is thankful for the help of a mysterious stranger named Girrard. He explains that he used to be Leo’s “Mercy Blade,” a sacred position charged with killing vampires who have gone insane. What Jane doesn’t know is why this powerful assassin left New Orleans − or, more troubling, why he’s now returned. It’s definitely not to make Jane’s life easier"
okay it took me long to get to read this story i know!! but the thing about this story is that is good, but only when she has almost everything find out and before that is just not that interesting, i mean it is because is how she get there right is just i like it when she has everything work out because i get it, before that i sure not have a clue was going on. i want it to see a little more action between her and Leo, that of course is my favorite character in this series and i want her with him, is funny really but they could make a great couple ( just wishing thinking, and putting it out there please Faith see these).
so this book has newcomers!! yeah, i like that, and not all of them bad, but some of the are nuts and the other no so much but closed and all foe come back you know the usual, but all good at the end or at least almost is. of course by the end of the book i want to know more and i think is what really matter if you want to read the next book, the next chapter to the story, the next idea/adventure etc. thinking this in my book is that she is doing her job.
the book is full of animalistic impulses and the true about our main character is coming close to be found out, because everyone want to find out what she is, and i think in some way we would get to see when that happen, i have a feeling Leo is going to be very interesting in what is going to happen to her, now that is finally coming back to himself. DID I SAY I LIKE HIM.
the book was okay like i say the body is not the best, because for me it get only good when she has almost everything and the book is about to end, so i just end up want it to read the next book and that it, until next book.
Faith Hunter has a great idea for her book the manipulation of information the double personality, conflicted and war/history in the book make it interesting to read.
let see what the next book is bringing to us.

Awakend by P.c Cast and Kristin Cast


"Exonerated by the Vampyre High Council and returned to her position of High Priestess at Tulsa’s House of Night, Neferet has sworn vengeance on Zoey. Dominion over her immortal consort Kalona is only one of the weapons she plans to use against Z. But Zoey has found sanctuary on the Isle of Skye and is being groomed by Queen Sgiach to take over for her there. Being Queen would be cool, wouldn’t it? Why should she return to Tulsa? After losing her human consort, Heath, she will never be the same – and her relationship with her super-hot-warrior, Stark, may never be the same either…
And what about Stevie Rae and Rephaim? The Raven Mocker refuses to be used against Stevie Rae, but what choice does he have when no one in the entire world, including Zoey, would be okay with their relationship? Does he betray his father or his heart?In the pulse-pounding 8th book in the bestselling House of Night series, how far will the bonds of friendship stretch and how strong are the ties that bind one girl’s heart?"

Okay guys I'm getting a little tired of this series,
  1. because is always the same and never something difference "only on Burned which is my fave. on the series"
  2. there enemies always win and they (good guys) keep losing people.
  3. Neferet is to evil even more evil that even kalona that is like the most evil of the all.
Actually have more point for this one but it would take to much out of me, really this story need a end, because i get it they are trying to make a war between human and vampires, plus darkness vs. light thing going on,but to much of the same is just TO MUCH.
I like the story line when i start it, but they have take the story line to much that now is just plain simple, you know what is to happen next no how but, you have a idea.
the book has some parts that i do like, for example Stevie Rae and the Raven Mocker, the past book was mostly about them and i did like it, and this one was too. So i actually like there is a happy ending for them well not a end just yet but the beginning, but mostly that what the book talk about not much of anything else, mostly them getting back and evil getting the upper hand once more.
The series has something very unique to it, but when a story line is in the same for to much it start becoming a little boring, and even thou i like the book other wise i would not read them, i kind of tired i want it to end, a end to the story and i don't know let zoey find her piece and just give her a break.
let see how more book are to come and i do hope there at least two more and that it, because i can take much more of it and i don't think is there to much i would read them all and if i do is only to get to the point.
Also just to put it out there i think Neferet is just to evil and nothing is going to change that only death so i don't think that in the end she is going to stay alive because if she does, well this book is going to suck she has kill to many for my liking.

Secret of the Demon by Diana Rowland


"Homicide detective Kara Gillian has a special talent: she can sense the "arcane" in our world, and there's quite a bit of it, even in Beaulac, Louisiana. She's also a summoner of demons, and works on a task force that deals with supernatural crimes. Her partners are attractive and smart FBI agents, but they're not summoners, and they're not telling Kara why they are on this special force with her.
To make things worse, Kara has pledged herself to one of the most powerful of demons-a Demon Lord-who helped save her partner's life, but now expects things in return. Meanwhile, she's trying to solve a string of murders that are somehow tied together by money, sex, rock music and...mud. But how can she concentrate on the case when she's not even sure who-or what-her partners are?"

For the 3rd book on this fantastic series, you can say that Diana Rowland out done herself, and she know how to make it happend, the suspense and not only that but she can make it look sexy and her take in demon is just the beginning, and not only that this book has answers many of the common question that i think we all want it answer too ( what is Ryan and how much the demonic lord care).

When i start this series i was so happy to have found a good series to lose my self in, and now i know this series has it all, of course in this one our main character is not a bad ass or anything but she is a very strong character to still write about, and mostly because she has so much that meet the eye, when you are reading the book you find so many realistic parts in it, not the demon of course the always someone that is more sensitive that other but for this book is not the case.

I actually could not stop reading and went crazy looking for the book 3 because i could not wait to get my hands on it.

What i like most about this book is that you never know what is going to happen, and the think is she make great killers and you actually never quite believe who the killers are until she want you too.

for this one was not the exception, and the killer was a very surprise to me and the end for it was much as the killer something so unique and different from all the books that make me wounder how Diana come up with this ideas. which i love, and mostly the Demonic lord is just fascinated and how he is part of the story line as much as the other character because he as his own agenda but when he come he sure does with something to bring to her. I think future book are going to be a little more complicated than this one because we found out something that, are actually very interesting and this a bomb about to explode.

this very sexual, passionated and mostly suspense thriller is not wounder you can stop reading!! this books and i can wait for her next master piece to hit the book store.

Blood of the Demon by Diana Rowland




" The serial killer known as the Symbol Man has been dealt with, the demonic lord Rhyzkahl is no longer invading her dreams, and Detective Kara Gillian is doing her best to get her life back to normal after being kind of dead for a while.
Unfortunately, there's little about Kara's life that is ever normal or simple. As a skilled summoner of demons, she's hoping to use her arcane abilities to retrieve her aunt's essence and restore it to her body. But when Kara discovers that FBI Agent Ryan Kristoff is somehow known to the demonkind--and not in a good way--old doubts surface and new problems emerge. Moreover, her investigations into the deaths of several seemingly unrelated victims reveal disturbing links to the arcane, with unsettling similarities to her own situation.
But matters get more complicated when she discovers other links between the victims, leading her into a morass of political corruption. And it doesn't help that Rhyzkahl has asked her to be his own summoner, a commitment that could have quite a few advantages and plenty of pitfalls. Politics--whether among humans or demons--is a dangerous game with very high stakes, and Kara is learning that lesson the hard way. "

For the second book on this series Diana Rowland let you see just a little more of what she is going to bring to the table, i know she want to put our heroin with Ryan the FBI cop and i think she is trying to make it easier for the reader to be up for this new romance, and mostly because now her book need to has more relationship between this two, even thou she is with the demon lord Rhyzkahl.
I like the book just or even more than the first and that is a little difficult because the first book is always the opening and make it one of the best or the most boring, is always difficult because you are opening something you are bringing something new and you need to have a great open for reader to keep coming for more, or at least a good end.
the book is full of suspense, magic, tragedy and much more. if you think you have see the last of this Author i can tell you that so mistaking her writing is just picking up and she is going to take the Fantasy/fiction/world by storm.
her book are wonderful and well put together to make everything work and the very end and make you see a detective in a another way.
i also like that she make our heroin look normal even when she is not, and mostly making her want normal thing and mostly because everyone want that, and she let her main character explore that possibility and not just eliminated completely.
this book are "you can stop until you finish" or at least until you find how the killer is.
this book has passion, sex, action and a lot of suspense and her killers are very interesting once everything is all put together, for you to find how fascinated it is.
Diana Rowland does a great job bringing this character to life and eve thou Ryan is a character that is very difficult to actually understand because you don't know where he stand, you want him close by.
For the book in general i can stop and i know it sound funny, but every book is different, and the thing is every book has it own story going for it, but them the story line always come together for the books.

Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland


"When Homicide Detective Kara Gillian finds traces of arcane power on a body, she quickly realizes that this is no ordinary murder. The serial killer known as the Symbol Man is a nightmare that Beaulac, Louisiana thought had ended three years ago, but now he's back for an encore and leaving every indication on the flesh of his victims that he is well-versed in demonic lore.
However, Kara is a Summoner of Demons, and may be the only cop on the city's small force who can stop the killer. Able to see and interact with a world most people can't, Kara must draw on her skills as a police officer and master of the arcane to stop the Symbol Man from killing again and possibly summoning something even she can't control.
But with a demonic lord of unearthly beauty and power haunting her dreams, and a handsome yet disapproving FBI agent dogging her waking footsteps, she may be in way over her head.... "

for the first book on this series I'm in love Diana Rowland book, I know what she is doing, is not new "the idea" of demons but she make it look as is totally new and this is so not the first time i ever read a book with demon on it, to tell you the truth, and i actually pretty happy that this book has nothing to do with the other book i have read, the book is actually pretty normal ( with the fiction of demons on it).

all books has a different way to see "the demons" and this book is not the exception but the author has another way to put it all together without been to religious about it and i actually like that, i not much of a religious girl myself but i respect everyone opinions.

i love this story line is just another good one to read to have to explore, to love, to share with friend and family and maybe even enemies.

When i start it, i like it when i was in chapter 2, i was interesting when in chapter 6, i was in love and when i got to chapter 7, i could not put it down. Books like this are very difficult to find, you may find good ones, but once that are from the beginning to end are interesting is difficult. i have read many but most of them take at least 3 chapter to get to it, some don't but that is all in the author hands.

Diana Rowland did a super job with this book and series, i like it so much and is interesting how she make her main character work for the plot of the book ( this happen when the main character become part of the world and not just i have to save the world but is more part of the normal group that just happen to be a little more special ) and how her love interest well both of them are just making a go for it, even if one of them want something different, just reading the book you don't know what is to happen and i love the mystery of it all.
after all a demon Lord after her and a FBI agent with beautiful eyes calling for her attention is something of a work, and i think the relationship in this book haven't actually born as it need to get but there is something in each one. I just think the Author doesn't want to give her only one so she has to learn to find herself them she is going to like chose one of these two. right about now i vote for the Demon LORD =].

i can wait to read book 2.

pick your copy now!!

My soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent

"Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back. See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives. And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.
Rachel Vincent did it again, her story for the soul screamers, and for f Kaylee that even Rachel found fun and very interesting to write.
in previews book or heroin "Kaylee" is always so Innocent and pure in a wear way, because she always get herself in trouble for other not herself and that why she has a hellion after her soul.
now in this book she any thing but sweat, she is fight to get Nash back and try to forgive him for everything and the same time try to deal with everything that her life has become.
this book shows a new face to Kaylee and she actually learn something that she is scare and more but she still trying her best to save those around her, and she been mad and just plain jealous is fun to read.
this series is really good and i know many other would think that and would love it, is not just the romance of it but is also something deeper that in the end is true. those you love you need to trust the most, and when that is lost is difficult to get it back.
this book is my favorite in the series so far, and i can wait to see what else is going to happen. i hope Rachel Vincent give this story a little more and she make something more that what she did with her other series, i think it had a great end but it took so much to get there. and i really hope she doesn't make Kaylee go throw that because she already has surfer a lot ( i act as she is a real person but i do like when book keep thing half and half).

Afterlight by Elle Jasper


"There is a reason we fear the night… As Savannah's most unconventional tattoo artist, Riley Poe is quite familiar with the local underground scene. She lives and works on the edge of it every day.Now, she's about to step over the edge.
When her younger brother is taken by a sinister cult led by centuries-old vampires, Riley discovers a world of shadows and blood--and those who exist there.
Her ally is the hot-tempered vampire Eli Dupre, who is attracted both to Riley's beauty as well
as her one-of-a-kind blood type. A blood type he is not alone in craving.
To save her brother from certain un-death, Riley will face dangers she's never dreamed of, ruthless bloodthirsty enemies, and an evil of endless hunger that wants to devour all in its vile grasp."

Holly Sh.... i don't think i can say that here, but wow this book is great.
the plot, the character, the story line everything about it is good, and the romance is yeah pretty heavy.
Ellen Jasper did something new for the vampire world, and just a very highly risky move on her part because the book feature a little of history just as Richelle Mead in Vampire Academy book has, as you know the strigoi is suppose to be this bad blood vampire and all that, well that what or miss Elle is using and she is doing a great job with it. almost everything is new and i also like that our heroin is not a heroin ( a killer or anything like that) she is put there because she has no other choice her life for her brother.
the romance is really heavy, hot, and desire are from beginning to end and i mean beginning to end.
you guys need to check this series really, is great and not only are hot and heavy when it come to sex but the passion with everything is writing in here you can feel it running through your body and there is nothing but toread and feel.
i very much addictive to this series and i can wait to get my hand on book 2, read the first chapter i just can believe it and the end are something to die for.
i can honestly say you can wait for great thing for this author story line because if she start this good everything else just going to get much better.

Entice by Carrie Jones

"Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that's not quite how things have worked out. For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla? And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned...she's Astley's queen"
for the 3rd book on this Pixie world, I have to say I actually like it.Is very nice to read something new, I always had like the plot, and Actually these is the first time that I read a book that speak of Valhalla or maybe not but this one is the one i remember just now.
what i like about the book is the reality of it, taking away the pixie and the god you may say that ( lol ) but that is not what i talking about, actually is the reality of you can always lose someone you love in a war, and you can really do anything about it but to remember and have that little part of you missing, or you can fight but there is always there risk.
of course in this book she actually save him from the dead and many die for it but, to be honest i think of that as something different completely.
Carrie Jones is a good author and I'm very happy to have the chance to read her story, also i think i have to say that the only think i don't like much is the main character Zara because in the pass book she was stronger in some way this one no as much she act kind like a child, but i think the next book she is going back to her normal self or so i hope so.
