Eternity (Immortal Witches #1)

Eternity (Immortal Witches, #1)Eternity by Maggie Shayne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love, love, love! Oh holy wow, this is an amazing book! I couldn’t put it down, and when I had to I was thinking of the story, the lives of the characters, what they are doing and what would happen next. I couldn’t wait to pick it up again. I found myself reading way to quickly and had to slow down just to savor the feel, the lives, and the love of each character even if they were bad. Now I must find a way to get the other books to the series. I can’t wait to get back the lives of Raven, Arianna, Duncan, and the Immortal witches.

Sacrifice of Love (The Grey Wolves, #7)

Sacrifice of Love (The Grey Wolves, #7)Sacrifice of Love by Quinn Loftis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got to hand it to Mrs. Loftis for writing, creating, and allowing us entrance into a wonderful adventure. I missed my Grey Wolf friends and am kicking myself as to why I didn’t pick this last book up sooner. Once again, I found myself trapped in world or wonder, hope, love, adventure, heartache, tragedy, and overall good company. I found this to be the best book to the GW series, even if it was the last one. I cried, laughed, sighed, almost threw my Kindle across the room at some parts, and even cursed at a few “stupid fur-balls”. This is great book and a great ending!

From Goodreads.com:

As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left.
Meanwhile, Jen’s pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel’s child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna—his life in place of his child’s. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken.
As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane’s heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona’s curse. He knows what happened wasn’t real, but still he can’t rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won’t let her inside to do just that.
Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She’s desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe?
With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance?
Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?

Raytara: Judgement of the Stars (Arash #2)

Raytara: Judgement of the Stars (Arash #2)Raytara: Judgement of the Stars by Elke Schuster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley.com.
Love, love, love this book! This is a the second book to the Arash series, and it won’t let you down! This books picks up the story of Livia and her “family”. After the shadow hunt, things start to go wrong. The “family” is in trouble and must find a way to stay together. Just like the first book, this book is full of action, adventure, twists, and turns. It held me captivated til it was finished. I can’t wait to see what the “family” has in store for them next!

The roles are changing:

Bright may not be bright after all when the past catches up with dark sins. But dark isn’t supposed to be the equivalent of bad, or is it?

A second Arash family, led by the fierce Philomena, harbouring a century-old hatred against Randolph, threatens to destroy them all, while Ruth spills Livia’s best kept secret, wrecking her love affair. Philomena, out for revenge, infiltrates her followers into Randolph’s family, but will everyone fall for the ruse? In the course of events Livia discovers her amazing inexplicable powers but will she be strong enough to save Randolph, who hides more secrets than anyone could guess, from Raytara, the judgement of the stars? Will her best friend Natalie finally find true love in the most unexpected of persons and can Livia save her own love after all?

Like “Arash – Shadow Hunt”, the first volume of the four-book series, “Raytara – Judgement of the Stars” is a gripping love story about unthinkable challenges and dangers in the fascinating world of the Arash.

Shattered

ShatteredShattered by Dean Koontz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not a bad read. It was a little different from what I’m use to reading from Mr. Koontz, but then again this is one of his earlier books. I picked this one up since it has been on my TBR pile for years and I figured if I couldn’t get into the Brother Odd series I might as well try this one. It didn’t disappoint. It had action, adventure, mystery, and kept my heart pounding from the first time I picked it up. I even had a few nightmares 🙂 after reading a chapter or two. Over all a good book if you want a thriller.

Cemetery Girl

Cemetery GirlCemetery Girl by David J. Bell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yay! I finally finished! I could have finished this book in one sitting but I had to keep putting it down and then picking it back up. The book is written to where it can be read quickly and easily. I liked how I didn’t have to keep going back and rereading just to follow the story when I put it down. The story line is good, a mystery, but I would have liked to see some more explanation on certain issues the book presented. The story line always kept me wanting more and more. Only at the end did some of the questions I had got answered. If you like a mystery this is a good quick read.

Iron’s Prophecy (The Iron Fey #4.5)

Iron's Prophecy (The Iron Fey, #4.5)Iron’s Prophecy by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I should have looked into where this book is in the series but I didn’t. This is book 4.5 of the Iron Fey series, and I think I have only read book 1. So I jumped a head quiet a bit in the story. However, this short book did not disappoint. I like how the action and adventure kept on flowing throughout the book. It didn’t give away to many details and I’m sure I read books 2-4 I’ll be able to follow the story line better. If you are into this series this a good little bit to read. It leads you into book #5.

Amity & Sorrow

Amity & SorrowAmity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I got this book from NetGalley.com. I wasn’t sure about getting this book, but it looked interesting enough to ask for a review copy. What I got was something unexpected, I thought I knew what I was getting myself into but I wrong! This book is not for the faint of heart. This is about a woman and her children escaping a cult and trying to survive out in the world. It tells the story of sisters who have no clue how to cope or survive outside their compound and away from their sadistic leader father. It’s about a woman, the first wife doing her best, yet not enough to help her daughters. The story goes back and forth from present day to memories being told. It tells of abuse, heartache, and fear. There were times where I had to stop reading and walk away because of the story being told. This book draws you in from the first page and won’t let you go til it is done. I will warn you, this book left me emotionally drained.
