Review: Destined to Kill by Jourdyn Kelly

Destined to Kill
by Jourdyn Kelly
Publication Date: May 21st, 2013
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Pages: 376
Purchase your copy today:
Amazon / Barnes & Noble

Synopsis: Immortality. Humans would sell their soul for it. Immortals would steal souls to keep it. Infinite life is too seductive and powerful to resist. But, immortality is more like a bad drug habit than a gift. Immortals can't give it up because after living for so long, they don't know how to face death. You see, living forever isn't all it's cracked up to be. Sure, you have your pros, but it's the cons that can make an Immortal wish for a death that will never come.

Anala Geil is a Hunter. She is bound by the rules of the Society. The rules are few, but they are strong. What happens when circumstances force her to break them all?

My Thoughts: Such a great plot, it grabbed me from the very beginning!!  Anala grows up in a society who hunt "cursed", or vampires, and after an unexpected accident she is left changed forever. After 600 years without vampires, except for Anala, a new group begins to form out of nowhere leaving Anala no other option than to bring together a group of hunters to train. I loved the main character, Anala, a vampire struggling with her humanity who hunts other vampires. She has such a strong personality and doesn't take crap from anyone! I actually ended up having a dream last night about the book, which never happens, where I was Anala out hunting, that's how much this book stuck with me! (or maybe I was just really tired after reading?) 

I love reading a book about vampires where the author gives you a new explanation for how vampires came into existence. For me it always gives the story that little extra, whenever there is a history to the plot, I just eat it up! I could not stop reading, each character the author created has such a unique and, for the most part, like-able personality! Almost making you want to be apart of the group of hunters. Jourdyn Kelly, the author, leaves you hanging at the end with a cliff hanger leaving you wanting more!! Luckily Destined to Love the second book in the series is already out and ready for me to read!!

Award-winning author Juliet Marillier “weaves magic, mythology, and folklore into every sentence on the page” (The Book Smugglers). Now she begins an all-new and enchanting series that will transport readers to a magical vision of ancient Ireland...

In exchange for help escaping her long and wrongful imprisonment, embittered magical healer Blackthorn has vowed to set aside her bid for vengeance against the man who destroyed all that she once held dear. Followed by a former prison mate, a silent hulk of a man named Grim, she travels north to Dalriada. There she'll live on the fringe of a mysterious forest, duty bound for seven years to assist anyone who asks for her help. 

Oran, crown prince of Dalriada, has waited anxiously for the arrival of his future bride, Lady Flidais. He knows her only from a portrait and sweetly poetic correspondence that have convinced him Flidais is his destined true love. But Oran discovers letters can lie. For although his intended exactly resembles her portrait, her brutality upon arrival proves she is nothing like the sensitive woman of the letters. 

With the strategic marriage imminent, Oran sees no way out of his dilemma. Word has spread that Blackthorn possesses a remarkable gift for solving knotty problems, so the prince asks her for help. To save Oran from his treacherous nuptials, Blackthorn and Grim will need all their resources: courage, ingenuity, leaps of deduction, and more than a little magic.

Amazon / Barnes & Noble

A romantic, suspenseful, genre-bending debut set in Edwardian London.

Amid the sumptuous backdrop of the London season in 1905, headstrong Katherine Sinclair must join the ranks of debutantes vying for suitors. Unfortunately for Katherine, she cannot imagine anything more loathsome—or dangerous. To help ease her entrance into society, Katherine’s family has elicited the assistance of the Earl of Thornewood, a friend and London’s most eligible bachelor, to be her constant companion at the endless fetes and balls. But upon her arrival in London, Katherine realizes there will be more to this season than just white gowns and husband hunting.

Through her late mother’s enchanted diary, Katherine receives warning to keep hidden her otherworldly ability to perform arcana, a magic fueled by the power of the sun. Any misstep could mean ruin—and not just for her family name. The Order of the Eternal Sun is everywhere—hunting for those like her, able to feed on arcana with only a touch of the hand.

But society intrigue can be just as perilous as the Order. The machinations of the fashionable elite are a constant threat, and those who covet Katherine’s arcana, seeking the power of her birthright, could be hiding behind the façade of every suitor—even the darkly handsome Earl of Thornewood.

With so much danger and suspicion, can she give her heart to the one who captivates her, or is he just another after her power?

Dust
by Sarah Daltry

 Synopsis:  Who makes YOUR choices?
"I was once the type of person who was impressed by starlight; the type of person who would dance beneath glass ceilings and let the world swim in its loveliness. The sky reminds me of the parties we used to throw - parties like the one last night. The memories bring back the trill of harps and endless ripples of satisfied laughter. Now, though, when I try to recall what I felt, all I hear is screaming."

In a world ravaged by war and oppressive forces of evil, a princess must fight to claim her bloodright and save her people.

When the princess, Alondra, falls for the beautiful, blue eyes of a hooded stranger, it awakens in her a taste for freedom and an escape from her duty.

But her parents have other plans; they have a kingdom to protect and Alondra must marry to ensure the peace between nations. Only what happens when your parents choose a cold-hearted assassin as your betrothed?

As lies, illusions, and long hidden vendettas surface, the princess has to confront a very secret history. One that makes her realize that she not only risks losing her liberty, but also everything she has known and loved.

Amazon / Barnes & Noble

Synopsis: Cendall, history’s first female Grim Reaper, has had one hell of a year. She has gone from the top of her class to the realm’s biggest traitor. Working with the enemy, Cendall finds herself enrolled in a human high school, protecting a soul she was originally supposed to collect. 

With her powers building and feelings for a particular enemy growing stronger, Cendall must learn to control herself and navigate her emotions as the threats against her and her assignment escalate. As she begins to come to terms with the fact that a master Demon is hot on their trail, an old friend brings to light that a bounty has been placed on her head, and she is the most wanted individual in the realm. 

Faced with the impossible task of defending herself and the soul she has grown to care for, Cendall must make a choice she never wanted to make and confront death’s greatest dilemma. 



My Thoughts: Ahhh! I just love this series and all the characters, Candice Burnett did an amazing job following up Death has a Daughter (DHAD)!!!  This series has such a unique plot for a fantasy series with a strong female lead, its hard not to get excited while reading.  The ending to this book was non stop entertainment with one surprise twist after the next that I honestly never saw coming!! 

Deaths Dilemma begins soon after DHAD,  book one, ends with the interesting discovery of Cendall's suppressed powers. Cendall is now working with the guardian angels as Lacie's main bodyguard alongside the dreamy and distracting Trevor.  With Cendall never leaving Lacie's side the girls become as close as ever, a best girlfriend Cendall never thought she would have. After sharing a passionate kiss and saving Trevor's life in DHAD, Cendall has a hard time keeping a clear head. Between keeping Lacie safe, keeping a clear head with Trevor and looking for answers to her newly discovered powers Cendall has a lot on her plate and things are about to pile up even higher. 

This series just keeps you on your toes with surprise endings to each book you would never expect. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, hopefully we don't have too long to wait, too see what Candice Burnett has in store for us next. Candice Burnett has me completely captivated with this plot and in love with every character I definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves a good fantasy book!

Zoe and the Demon Slayer 
by Neel Kay
Publication date: October 6th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult

Synopsis: Twenty-four year old book worm and blogger Zoe Graves was looking forward to the fourth and final instalment of her favourite book saga – The Augustin Chronicles. The evening was meant to be spent in line at the local bookstore with hundreds of other fans, getting the book, maybe even meeting the author, and ultimately spending the night with the dreamiest hero of them all, Lucien de Forest and the love of his life Noomi Augustin.

But somewhere someone thought otherwise.
Confused and hurt after a mugging by the bookstore, Zoe is somehow transported to another world, and suddenly finds herself in a snow-covered landscape witnessing a bloody fight far away from the English summer, and is left to rely on the help from the rather reluctant Matis, who just happen to be out to kill none other than Zoe’s favourite hero and heroine, Lucien and Noomi.
Although convinced she might be in some sort of limbo or maybe even in a coma, Zoe figures that her role in the story is to prevent Matis from killing her all-time favourite fictional couple.

3 Wicked-Hot Halloween Tidbits
by Titania Ladley

With the release of our Wicked Hot Reads box set full of Halloweeny paranormal romance stories by ten fabulous authors, including New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon best sellers, we’d all like to pose the three following must-know questions to our readers:

1) What's the most unique/scary/fave/cool Halloween costume you've ever seen or worn?
2) What's your favorite and least favorite Halloween candy?
3) What's your favorite paranormal creature to write or read about?

To get the pumpkin rolling, the ten of us will answer our own questions. Then it’s your turn! 

Jessie Donovan - author of Blaze of Secrets featuring the Feiru, elemental magic creatures.
1) My mother was a master seamstress and one year she made me the Belle costume 
(the big ballroom dress) from Beauty and the Beast (in blue instead of yellow) and it was gorgeous! Too bad my cats at the time destroyed it shortly after I wore it.
2) I don't like candy very much, but if I had to choose, then either Twix or Almond Joy for my favorite, and Good & Plenty as my least favorite.
3) Definitely dragon-shifters.

AC James - author of Fallen Ever After featuring mystical faeries and hot vampires.
1) When I was pregnant, I went to a Halloween costume party as Mother Earth. I stole a fall wreath from my mother-in-law, wore a brown hippie skirt with a tie-dye bikini top, and my girlfriend drew the earth on my belly in blue and green costume makeup.
2) Bubblegum.
3) I'd have to say that I've been a fan of vampire romance since I was a teenager. Both reading it and writing it.

Jan Springer - author of Bared to Him presenting “talented” tentacle shapeshifters. ;)
1) One time I saw this guy (or it could have been a girl) who was dressed up like a zombie that looked right out of the tv series the Walking Dead. It freaking scared me and grabbed my imagination to the point where that night I dreamed about waking up in a world full of zombies. *shiver*
2) Luv caramels! Don’t have a least fav... Love all Halloween candy. lol
3) Tentacle Shifters! Woot!

Shoshanna Evers - author of Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining) an spotlighting enchanting beast.
1) My favorite (and scariest!) Halloween costume was when my husband and I (before we were married) dressed up as a zombie-couple. I did our makeup, with rubber wounds and gashes and dead-looking skin, and we wore dirt-smudged old clothing, as if we'd climbed out of the graveyard that night. We looked pretty gruesome!
2) Favorite: I love candy corn, the kind with brown on it along with the orange and yellow! They taste different from the pure orange and yellow kind, not sure why! Least favorite: those fake candy eyeballs! They are too gross-looking to eat.
3) Writing the Beast from Beauty and the Beast (an erotic re-imagining) was absolutely awesome. I had to make him huge, terrifying, but also sexy, and kind. It was a fun challenge!

Titania Ladley - author of Mark of the Serapath featuring a bewitching witch and a sexy vampire.
1) A unique couple’s costume I saw at a huge Halloween street bash was one where the woman was dressed as a giant electrical socket and the man as an electrical cord with the prongs. They, um, “fit” together very well.
2) My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. My least favorite is those icky taffy squares wrapped in white wax paper.
3) I love writing witch and wizard characters. All the magic is so fun!

Cathryn Fox - author of Knocking on Demon's Door including irresistible demons.
1) My husband and Kids and I all dressed as tie-dyed hippies and it went to a school Halloween dance. It was great fun. 
2) Least fav candy is Tootsie roll. Fav candy is anything chocolate.
3) Favorite paranormal creature: werewolves.

Lisa Hughey - author of Archangel Rafe presenting gorgeous angels.
1) Costume...a few years ago I was a twister board. It was a really fun costume..
2) Fav candy is Reese's PB cups.
3) My favorite paranoramal creature is Archangels. 

Mina Carter - author of Dragon’s Honor featuring breathtaking dragons.
1) I'm in the UK so we don't really 'do' halloween :S I did see a great zombie costume a kid was wearing the other year. It was a zombie onesie complete with a shredded guts breastplate.
2) Chocolate is my favourite, I'm not too fond of boiled sweets. 
3) Shifters, probably. Of any description. 

Milly Taiden - author of A Mate's Bite showcasing Milly’s awesome werewolves.
1) All of them. I'm a big Halloween fan. 
2) Favorite all the chocolates. Least fave candy korn.
3) Wolves.

Sarah Mäkelä – author of The Wolf Who Played With Fire presenting a sexy wolf and a sweet witch.
1) I was Catwoman one year as a kid with the whip and everything. It was a blast.
2) I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I dislike anything with chunky peanuts.
3) Werewolves! <3

So what are your favorite and least favorite Halloween costumes and candies? What are your favorite and least favorite paranormal creatures to read about?

Review: Souls (Grimnirs Book 2) by Ednah Walters


Souls (Grimnirs Book 2)
by Ednah Walters
Publication Date: September 29th, 2014

WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.


Synopsis: Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday
night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?

My Thoughts: From the second I started this series I fell in love with all the characters and the obstacles they continue to overcome. Ednah Walters has me absolutely captivated in this world of Norse Mythology.  The idea for a book is like nothing I have read before and I have loved every second of the Runes series and spin-off Grimnirs series. 

I just love Cora and Echo together, when he is first introduced in Grimnirs its hard not to fall for this bad boy who has let Cora into his heart. Echo continues to have a hard time watching Cora help souls because of the toll it takes on her body but he understands it is something she needs to do for herself since discovering she was immortal. Then a dark souls and old friend of Echo's, Dev, starts following Cora around asking for help, at first Echo is completely against the idea of helping him until Dev saves Cora from another evil soul trying to poses her body. 

Like the rest of this series I absolutely loves this book and could not put it down for a second!! Ednah always leaves me wanting to know what happens next with her epic endings, I have no patience, luckily the fourth book in The Runes Series, Witches, releases this December! Thank Goodness!!

SEDUCTION’S KISS by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper.
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates.
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero.

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.

KISS OF AWAKENING by Jennifer Snyder
With one kiss, everything will change…

When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, make a trip to New Orleans hoping for a little Halloween fun and to get away. The mystifying Crescent City has something else in store for her though.

Cryptic messages, a hot tour guide, and a new sense Kenna can’t seem to explain are just the beginning of this eye opening trip. Will Kenna accept what awakens with in her or will she crumble under its reality?





My Thoughts: Loved this collection paranormal novellas what a great group of authors to put into one book. I loved that each story had the Midnight Cauldron in New Orleans on Halloween incorporated to tie them together. I definitely downloaded the books tied to each story. Each story was uniquely amazing and addicting! I definitely recommend this book as a must read this October to get you in the Halloween mood. 

The story I loved the most was Seductions Kiss by Alyssa Rose Ivy. Ever since I read The Crescent Chronicles I have loved Owen, don't get me wrong Levi is great but I have been hoping for more story on Owen.  I am so glad we get a little piece into his life and I really hope there will be more for Daisy and Owen in the near future. Loved this short story just wish there was more of Owen! 

I also really enjoyed was After Midnight, Allison and John are hard not to love. I was so happy to read the very end definitely making me giddy!! I want to know more about this world and hope there will be more of Allison and John to come!

Now don't get me wrong I have only great things to say about each story even if I picked my favorites. Each story grabbed me in it's own way and I cannot wait to read more by each author!!
