Review: Vampire in Design by Dale Mayer - 5 of 5 stars

Vampire in Design Vampire in Design by Dale Mayer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The fight goes on and there is a cliffhanger at the end as normal. I just want Cody and Tessa to have a little happiness to discuss their feelings, but the fighting always seems to stop those discussions.

Great book which I enjoyed.

Review: Vampire in Distress by Dale Mayer - 5 of 5 stars

Vampire in Distress Vampire in Distress by Dale Mayer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tessa has persuaded her family and friends to rescue her friend Jared after he was kidnapped. What they discover is something that horrifies them all and makes them determined to stop. In the process of that Tessa is captured.

Tessa manages to free herself as her family and friends (including Jared) do their best to work out what is happening as the first team is not all that they seem and include people involved in the conspiracy.

Tessa and Cody move closer in this fighting and discover they can even talk to each other in their minds. What happens next as it appears the fight is not over.

Great second book and I felt better than the first (maybe because it didn't need to set the scene and introduce characters as much)

Review: Vampire in Denial by Dale Mayer - 4 of 5 stars

Vampire in Denial Vampire in Denial by Dale Mayer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tessa is an anomaly in her family - whilst she the offspring from 2 vampires she is part human. This means she doesn't feel fully part of either culture and has given in on her Vampire side and is concentrating on her Human side. Her and her human friends are attacked after seeing movie and she is injured.

She tries everything she can to get the Vampire community to help free him even when it means she has to do it all on her own. Her brother's friend Cody is initially the only one who helps her. As part of that both her and Cody have the very early stages of maybe having some feelings for each other.

Good book which I enjoyed.

Review: Stranger by Heather C Myers - 5 of 5 stars

Stranger Stranger by Heather C. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Very interesting story based on people who are different to normal humans due to an ability like mind reading, strength or shape shifting (as examples). They are at a school set up to train them and this is the story of Sophie and her journey of knowledge and training at the school. She gets friends, and we get to see the lives of her and her two roommates at the school.

There is also danger from a different group of people with the same abilities and there is a close shave as they try to abduct the three roommates. Fortunately they escape thanks to one of them using her abilities, but that puts them in even more danger in the future.

Recommended. I enjoyed it and now want to know what happens next - do the various love interests come to fruition or does something happen. What is going to happen to the danger from the other people with abilities?

Heroes & Thieves by Heather C. Myers - 4 of 5 stars

Heroes & ThievesHeroes & Thieves by Heather C. Myers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a pirate/romance story about Belle and Captain Donovan (who is the pirate). Seems in the end they are both what each other wanted/needed and once they realise that, we have a happy ending. Nice story. Seemed a little mixed in the language used (I'm not sure pirates would have used some of the phrases the Captain used) and got a touch tedious in places, but an enjoyable read for the beach or holiday.

Black And Blue by J.C. Andrijeski - 5 of 5 stars

Black And BlueBlack And Blue by J.C. Andrijeski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a ARC of this book for an honest review.

Miri and Quentin are only recently mated and trying to get used to the bond which is exacerbated because she doesn't necessarily understand all the implications of what happens during the establishment of it. Quentin takes a consulting job against Miri's judgement as a way of getting back to working after a recent injury. Unfortunately it does not go to plan and Quentin is kidnapped and given a task to do before he gets his freedom. As part of his kidnapping he has his abilities blocked so cannot feel or communicate with Miri. This means they both get the side effects of an establishing mating bond and all that entails. Miri does everything she can to find Black and work out the mystery of who has him.

I found the style of this book very enjoyable. The characters were very real and believable and the story addictive - I was certainly seeing the story and characters in my mind as I was reading it (a bit like watching a film). I found myself reading faster as I got further through the book as I NEEDED to know what happened next. Definitely recommended and worth reading.

Graveyard Shift by Angela Roquet - 4 of 5 stars

Graveyard Shift (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc., #1)Graveyard Shift by Angela Roquet
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lana is a reaper who harvests souls as people die and make sure that they get to where they are supposed to go. A book with intrigue, politics, battles and plenty of angels and demons.

This is a novel idea which has been well written into a good story. As the Kindle edition is free, give it a try.

Awaken by Heather C. Myers - 5 of 5 stars

Awaken (Dark Paradise #1)Awaken by Heather C. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is centred around the struggle between good and evil and the impending war between the two. The main three characters are all friends at school who are mixed in this war that is coming in different ways. In this book, two of the three have a love interest which might not work out as you would like (read it and you'll understand).

I found it a little weird when it went back a few times to tell the same part of the story from the other person's viewpoint, but overall I really enjoyed it and became addicted and ended up finishing it when I should have been doing something else. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens in book two - I need to know how some things have worked out and what happens next

Recommended - give it a try and you might find like me you have discovered a new series to be obsessed about.

Vampire Addiction (The Vampires of Athens, #1)Vampire Addiction by Eva Pohler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting story mixing ancient Greek mythology and Vampires. I have to say I got really irritated with Gertie at times - she seems to be foolish (or fearless) in the extreme. I so wanted to slap her.

Shadow Wings by J.C. Andrijeski - 5 out of 5 stars

Shadow WingsShadow Wings by J.C. Andrijeski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story by JC Andrijeski this time as part of the Skeleton Key series

I was given an ARC for this book in return for an honest review.

This book seamlessly weaves a classic Russian environment with a story of love, passion and corruption. There's Ilana and her upstanding morals (even though she understands and can play the corrupt parts of the system), plus Raguel who knows so much about her and her life even though she has never met him. We follow them as they get to know each other and solve a terrible crime.

The characters are very believable and I just wanted to know what next for them by the end of the book. Highly recommended - this is good for both existing fans and a good introduction for any new readers to JC's writing.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great second book in the series

This is book 2 of the series and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first one. Very hot and steamy, but it was all needed as part of the story. Now I need to read the next part as I want to know what happens next. It leaves me however with the burning question - how do I get one of these guys down here for me????

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Very well written book which was very enjoyable to read

This is a very well written book which describes everything in great detail. I found this book addictive so I just know I will be going on to read the whole series. I loved the level of detail about the rituals and thought it added to the story. I did find it a little annoying as the determination to eave went a little too far, but overall I loved the book. Heartily recommended.
