Last Dragon Standing by G.A Aiken

HE'S NOT THE ONLY FLAME IN TOWN........ "I know what they see when they look at me. The charming, soft-spoken dragoness bred from the most powerful of royal bloodlines. A disguise stronger than any battle shield that allows me to keep all suitors at tail's length. A technique that's worked until him. Until Ragnar the Cunning, handsome barbarian warlord and warrior mage from the desolate Northlands. Unlike those who've come before him, he does not simply submit to my astounding charm and devastating smile. Instead, he dismisses me as vapid, useless and, to my great annoyance, rather stupid! Yet I'll allow no male to dismiss me. Soon he'll learn my worth, my many skills, and the strength of my will. For this one challenges me enough to make me want to ruthlessly taunt him, tease him and, finally, when the trap is set, bring him to his knees. " Book 4rd in the series of Dragon Kin was actually fun, i didn't laugh as much with What a Dragon Should know but, the drama and romance was all here. one thing that this book doesn't have the same end as the other but i guess that is because we are no talking about easy character, we are actually talking about complicated one but over all everything is good. there is much surprises here and i can wait to see what else is going to happen, plus i think when the time is right G.A. Aiken is going to let us fall in love with character that love each other but they don't know it just yet, let see. there is much going on in this one, and i think even more that i though possible for a dragon book. never though i was going to enjoy this books as much as i do, plus i love that the author let you keep going into the life of all the character no only two or three but all, and is good because normally you don't get that once the character and lover book is done that probably the last book were you read what they think or maybe another book but that about it, and it suck but that is what normally happen no this one. I can wait to get my hand in the next book.

One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost COVER

SHE JUST PUBLISH HER COVER FOR ...................


COMING ON AUG. 30, 2011

"Yes, the model for Cat has changed. I was told by my publisher that the previous model is no longer doing book covers. However, I think the art director found a great replacement, and hey, Cat finally gets to let her hair down. After six books, she’s earned that, right?

Considering that Halloween is the holiday that’s prevalent in this book, I love how the cat (take a bow, Helsing, it’s your cover debut!), the somewhat spooky fog, and the orange font ties into that. I also love the stepback with its romantic pose. Clearly, Cat’s coat loves it, too. Look how happy it is to see Bones!" - Jeaniene Frost say.-


What a Dragon should Know by G.A. Aiken


"Only for those I love would I traipse into the merciless Northlands to risk life, limb, and my exquisite beauty. But do they appreciate it? Do they say, "Gwenvael the Handsome, you are the best among us-the most loved of all dragons?" No! For centuries my family has refused to acknowledge my magnificence as well as my innate humility. Yet for them, and because I am so chivalrous, I will brave the worst this land has to offer.
So here I stand, waiting to broker an alliance with the one the Northlanders call The Beast. A being so fearful, the greatest warriors will only whisper its name. Yet I, Gwenvael, will courageously face down this terrifying…woman? It turns out the Beast, a.k.a. Dagmar Reinholdt, is a woman-one with steel-gray eyes and a shocking disregard for my good looks. Beneath her plain robes and prim spectacles lies a sensual creature waiting to be unleashed. Who better than a dragon to thaw out that icy demeanor?
And who better than a beast to finally tame a mighty dragon's heart? "

This is actually my favorite book on the series, I Love it so much......... I can wait to get my hand in the next one.

This book is actually about my favorite character on the series which is fun to actually get to read, Gwenvael is one of those character that no one take seriously because they think he is just a pretty face with little brain, and actually is much more than that, and that is why his female love interest is a great match.
when I read that the author say this was the most difficult but fun book to write I have to agreed, because she has to put a character that would make or main male character look harmless in some way, which she did really good.

This is the most manipulative book I had read I think, is actually fun to see how the both get what they want, by playing with people, and the worst is that is true, information which they get, but no only that is the fact that no one would think they know this because they are not take serious as they should.

making this two character work for each other is what really got to me, plus this book have the birth of Fearghus and Annwyl's twins that I hope we get to read more about it.

there romance like always, but this is a very power book, not the plot, that work is the emotions that the author let you get from this one, and as different from the other book there love is mostly because they like each other he never was arrogant or anything but a lover to her and I think that actually work for this book there is not "I save you so your mine" or " he is a knight and a dragon" this book is all about what they want and why they want each other without anything in between, just pure love and I like it is not something that look as a lie or something that they just want to get over with, is just LOVE <3.>

About a Dragon by G.A. Aiken


"For Nolwenn witch Talaith, a bad day begins with being dragged from bed by an angry mob intent on her crispy end and culminates in rescue by-wait for it-a silver-maned dragon. Existence as a hated outcast is nothing new for a woman with such powerful secrets. The dragon, though? A tad unusual. This one has a human form to die for, and knows it. According to dragon law, Talaith is now his property, for pleasure...or otherwise. But if Lord Arrogance thinks she's the kind of damsel to acquiesce without a word, he's in for a surprise...
Is the woman never silent? Briec the Mighty knew the moment he laid eyes on Talaith that she would be his, but he'd counted on tongue-lashings of an altogether different sort. It's embarrassing, really, that it isn't this outspoken female's magicks that have the realm's greatest dragon in her thrall. No, Briec has been spellbound by something altogether different-and if he doesn't tread carefully, what he doesn't know about human women could well be the undoing of his entire race...
This is a re-release of The Distressing Damsel."

Book two on the Dragon Kin series was really, really good. it was fun book to get my hand on and the most important thing about this book is that this character are so different from one and another, and one of them is not very likable as it is, until the end of course, the thing is that or main character is very arrogant, he is so full of himself and no one else and to tell you the true is not a very likable character and G.A. Aiken toke a big risk with him, knowing that he is not very likable, so what those or author those, well easy she give you a very similar female main character. A very strong very powerful and intelligent main female that make this arrogant male look nice, plus letting you see how he felt for her is a very smart move for the series, because making this all new in some way to him is important to take some of the arrogant and make him more human, also just help the reader have a good laugh. Over this entire book are so fun to read, you need to read it. This book is very romantic, unique and never in my reading life would have thing that dragon can become so very sexy and passionate.Love what this author did with the series I can wait to see what she come up with next.

Dragon Actually by G.A. Aiken


"It's not always easy being a female warrior with a nickname like Annwyl the Bloody. Men tend to either cower in fear-a lot-or else salute. It's true that Annwyl has a knack for decapitating legions of her ruthless brother's soldiers without pausing for breath. But just once it would be nice to be able to really talk to a man, the way she can talk to Fearghus the Destroyer.
Too bad that Fearghus is a dragon, of the large, scaly, and deadly type. With him, Annwyl feels safe-a far cry from the feelings aroused by the hard-bodied, arrogant knight Fearghus has arranged to help train her for battle. With her days spent fighting a man who fills her with fierce, heady desire, and her nights spent in the company of a magical creature who could smite a village just by exhaling, Annwyl is sure life couldn't get any stranger.
She's wrong...
[And just wait until you meet the rest of the family...] "

Well this series was recommended it by a friend and she has a great taste when it comes to book.

I enjoy this book a lot, is actually funny but this story remain me of Bones and Cat series by Jeaniene Frost which I'm a big fan of.

The plot works, the character are amazing, the story line is perfect. there you have romance, hate, war and attitude and to tell you the true I love that she fall in love with this character that in the end is not even human but them it works out for them, but still these author really surprise me with everything in this book let see what happen next I can wait, plus even more interesting the fact they are Dragons and not like Vampire, Were, Angels etc. is something so new to me, that I though I was never going to like, but the joke is on me because I actually love the story.

The only bad thing about this story is that it changes hand I just hope I get to see the other character because I think after this next book, I’m going to have a favorite one.

Reading series like this is fun because you get to meet all the character in some level and mostly because she let you see everything about them more important you get to laugh and fall in love all over again with each new character and I think her as an author should be very proud of.

G.A. Aiken has lot expectation with me for this next book hope she live up to it.

Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins


"Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch. That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth. Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers. But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she"

For book two on the Hex Hall series I can say I was happy with the end result, it wasn't anything out of this world yes but it was a fun book to read and it has a lot going on ( potential) for the next books to come and your villain are interesting I guess.

all the character from this book make it very interesting in some way, and I think for the very end of this series that more that peace would be make and it would be very interesting to read, see how our character get to that point and all that plus see this Author make it happen as well.

Rachel Hawkins, looks new to this all but she has been doing a very good job with her story line and she is playing with very much all the possibilities that she can used to her advantage and I more can come in the future.

It was fun and it has lot of mystery and much more involving her mother and father than we used to know in the first book maybe they get together or something let see how this would play out.

Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz


"Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series. "

Melissa de la Cruz is a very good author, but her story of blue blood is becoming a little boring. when it used to really good and very fun to read, I don't know why but I just didn't like this book much, I find it as a job to read it, and I never became involve in the story, is like I read it to read it but no actually became part of the story like I normally do.
Maybe I want it something else but really there wasn't much in it, to see.
the only good part was they let you see a little of Sky mother and father how they become, but not a completed story or I probably missing I don't know.
the plot in the pass book and this one included has become a little weak, not because is bad but because it doesn't go with what is going on, is like Melissa putting in hold the story because she doesn't know how is going to end and she is thinking that herself.
over all I didn't like the book as much as I wish, yes I would read the next one, but I only hope I love that story so much more that way I would be more into the next books.
I hope no one gets mad but no everyone is going to like the same thing so I
hope you guys get that this is my opinion and only that.

Pale Demon by Kim Harrison


"Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after. Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for his own mysterious business. But Rachel isn’t the only passanger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail. A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her"

Okay Kim Harrison has a way around her book that I love, she can make almost anything happen and still come on up top with her story line and plot.
What make this book so good is that she did something we all want it to know, if not want it, were wanting for it to happen, trent, rachel, ivy, and jenks in the same car, and picking more people along the way.
It was fun and mostly when it come to her be a demon or not I have so much fun reading this book even thou I didn't think her choice was smart, because I know the next book is going to make her go back to everything that happen to her so in the end yes, she can get some peace but everything has a way to finding you once more, and I think no I know what is that going to be so I can wait to see Kim that into action.
Well this book has everything and that why I think, that she my want something else for herself but no for long and anyways she has to fix something still.
Plus if these keep going I going to miss my favorite character and that can happen plus this series would not be as good without them.
Let see what happen next and I can wait to get my hand on the next book. I so hope that she make everything as how it need to be or something like that, no that I want her running for her life more in the line of been around those she love and those she love to hate.

get your hand on this Demon?

Iron Crown by Richelle Mead

"Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land’s queen, she’s fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear…Who Eugenie can trust is the hardest part. Fairy king Dorian has his own agenda for aiding her search. And Kiyo, her shape-shifter ex-boyfriend, has every reason to betray her along the way. To control the Crown’s ever-consuming powers, Eugenie will have to confront an unimaginable temptation--one that will put her soul and the fate of two worlds in mortal peril…"
I'm sad after finishing this book, no because wasn't any good more in the lines that "I don't want to wait" to see what happen in this story, I was hoping to have to wait like some month and that it, but I have to wait until next year uhgg!!! but well I just hope for at least for a chapter of this story because what a end.
I have a feeling I just was hope for someone else but I do love Dorian more that Kiyo and I hope they don't end up together sorry but I think he is not right for her "Kiyo".
Okay I know is a book and all but I still think there love was a joke and eve thou she is always having problems with Dorian he is truthful with her in some ways so I like him much better.
To say this is one of the Fairies base book, is that I like the most is no a lie, but still I don't like the wait.
I'm happy with this book still a little disappointed with her when she is mad she does stupid things but I think she finally learned for her mistake, and maybe this time around she truest goes to someone that even thou has a agenda would be more than happy to be with her.
Eugenie is a very strong character as it is, but when it come to dealing when her emotion she never knows what to do and she been in love with two men is what really confuse her the most.
I think that she need to see the fact and you can love some a lot but what make you love them is what matter plus, she can really kick ass.
There is more going on that just the butt kicking but you need to read about it telling everything is just not fun.
And well lastly the war is as it need to be, full of power play and death and she wanting peace for her people and all that, like a say a strong character make for a very good book.

Lover Mine by J. R. Ward


"Readers have flocked to the "raw, gritty...genre-bending"* novels of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. Now return to that seductive- and dangerous- night world as the fever rises in the war between the vampires and slayers. *BooklistIn the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. Long divided as a terrifying battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown to himself and to those around him. After he was taken in by the Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was- or his true identity. Indeed, the fallen Brother Darius has returned, but with a different face and a very different destiny. As a vicious personal vendetta takes John into the heart of the war, he will need to call up on both who he is now and who he once was in order to face off against evil incarnate. Xhex, a symphath assassin, has long steeled herself against the attraction between her and John Matthew. Having already lost one lover to madness, she will not allow the male of worth to fall prey to the darkness of her twisted life. When fate intervenes, however, the two discover that love, like destiny, is inevitable between soul mates. "

Well for John a.k.a Darius story, I like it, it was actually a good story plus we got to meet Darius as himself, just more than for those short chapters in Dark Lover we get to see a little more of him and the true is, J.R. Ward did for me with her pass two stories.
One bad thing thou are that there is so much pain in both parties that they are always in the look either trying no to care or just trying to just leave.
the plot was fun and other characters are staring to come out as well and emotion are developing but to bad I didn't get to see my favorite fallen angel in action just until the very end of the book but well I still like him way to much.
It was sexy and a little romantic plus lot of action.
well something I notice was that the author never actually took you to what really happen to him "John" and I like that she didn't do that because she change the story a little to much in the other book that I just was happy that she let you know that was there but that stop matter to him, when his female was in danger and all that, plus I think the story was more of what happen to Xhex that anything else.
I always like strong female character and I have to say all the female in this series are that and more.
I know is to soon but I hope there is more baby in this house it would suck if they don't plus it going to be more interesting having a full house, more possible book too.
Let see what the next book is going to be about, because when in previews book this character is talk about you think she the incarnation of evil but so far I just see a fighter and that it.
