Another day, another problem 
for Piper Jones and her eclectic mix of allies.

And so far, her pack of vampire enforcers, werewolves, and her warlock mentor have come through it all unscathed. But when a rogue assassin starts killing off Knox’s crew, she’s got more to worry about than the faint blue scar on her chest and her failing powers.

Now she must race against time to heal her broken magic, if she wants to save the wolves she’s grown to love.

MY REVIEW:

HOLY MOLY!!! That was good!!! In book three we get to know more about Piper and see her developing into her powers. Grizz is still my favorite (just because he’s so funny and truly cute) I absolutely love how Amber Lynn developed his character. After reading book two I wasn’t sure how big of a roll Grizz would play in book three. I love how his attitude and the fact he is so protective of Piper. The moments with Grizz talking back and or taking his guardian roll very serious was both humorous and cute. Kat is still the smarta$$ bestfriend I think everyone needs in their life. We do get answers to questions I’ve asked myself as well as many readers have asked before when book two ended. I look forward to reading more from Amber Lynn Natusch!



About Amber Lynn Natusch


Amber Lynn Natusch is the author of the bestselling Caged, as well as the Light and Shadow series with Shannon Morton. She was born and raised in Winnipeg, and speaks sarcasm fluently because of her Canadian roots. She loves to dance and sing in her kitchen—much to the detriment of those near her—but spends most of her time running a practice with her husband, raising two small children, and attempting to write when she can lock herself in the bathroom for ten minutes of peace and quiet. She has many hidden talents, most of which should not be mentioned but include putting her foot in her mouth, acting inappropriately when nervous, swearing like a sailor when provoked, and not listening when she should. She’s obsessed with home renovation shows, should never be caffeinated, and loves snow. Amber has a deep-seated fear of clowns and deep water…especially clowns swimming in deep water.

REVIEW~ Annihilation by B.C. Burgess

0
COMMENTS


REVIEW:
I think it’s okay to admit I’m obsessed with this series!!!! Book 8 had everything I had wished and hoped for in it and more. I keep expecting to eventually not to be surprised by the turn of the events that unravels in each book and it just doesn’t happen. B.C. Burgess keeps me on the edge of my seat only anticipating something big coming but not able to guess what she has planned. Boy oh boy did a lot happen in book eight. In book seven we found a little on Layla being the Earth Angel and after finishing book seven I was dying to learn more. Thankfully the author answered my prayers and expanded on what Layla being the Earth angel actually meant. Along with a backstory we also get more Layla and Quin interaction (cue the jumping up and down) that had my heart beating a mile a minute and not even for a second wanting to put the book down.

One of my favorite aspects of B.C. Burgess’s writing is her words while reading through each book spark emotion within me. I can’t even count the numerous tears I shed throughout this series. Five stars for a fantastic read!

REVIEW:
 I absolutely LOVED book 12 of 13 of the Charley Davidson series!!! Okay so to break it down we get more of Reyes Farrow from before when he was a god out for vengeance. Oh my goodness the HOTNESS!!! The ending threw me and I most certainly won’t reveal what the ending was the had my jaw dropping but holy moly that was UNREAL!!! After reading I had to just sit there for a few minutes contemplating whether or not a Darynda Jones had just done that! Darynda Jones has once again stolen my heart only this time with book 12. Now I just need book 13 to satisfy my hunger for more Reyes!

For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.

LETHAL ALLIES
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

Review


Aurora is a seventeen-year teen who can see demons. She moves back to a town where she used to live when she was younger because an incident happened. She ends up starting to be hunted by demons and she doesn’t know why. When she ends up back in this town she ends up be of catching the attention a guy who happens to be part of a group of friends who are known as The Hex Boys. People in their high school don’t know much about the Hex Boys because they stay to their group.
This is not a prophecy book. Actually, there were people before her that who was like her but actually happen to be male. She is the first female to be what you will find out if you read.
I love the characters in this book especially. The Hex Boys definitely have their own personalities. I love the interaction between Matthias and Aurora. To me their interaction is humorous. A secondary character that I love is Aurora mum. She is one of those fierce protective mothers. There is a part in the book where you see a humorous side to that. Gloria is a character who I find enjoyable to read.
I love this book. It is so enjoyable to read. The series is definitely a series to continue. I found it humorous and laughed many times. It is a fun read. I highly recommend this book. I give it a 5/5 rating. Finally, have to say this is a bonus. There are food recipes in the back. So don’t stop at the end of the story.

SHE HAS BEEN HIDDEN AWAY.
Now she is choosing to use her power.
It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her.
Everyone...except Prince Brigan


Review


Fire is a prequel novel to Graceling I will like to say first. You don’t have to read Graceling first. This book is an intriguing. It has war, romance, mystery, and coming out of one's shell and self-acceptance. The plot and idea of the story are so enjoyable to read. When I began reading this, I was caught right away because of the opening scene of the chapter. I didn’t want to stop reading it. So I read it nonstop, and it kept my attention the whole time. The book’s setting definitively helps the story. The warring factions and who they try to recruit. Even though this is not historical fiction, it has that more 18th-century technology and setup of government as an absolute monarch. Though, not all the culture is like the 18th century. Such as women being a part of the military, and they are more equal like in recent times. The Dellian people have their language and culture. For funerals, they burn the bodies and sing what is called the Dellian Lament. There are the main antagonist's plot and the secondary antagonist's plot that intertwine but are separate.

I love the characters. Especially Fire and Brigan. I love how Fire started out with self-doubt and no acceptance of her being a human monster. I love how she over time through the war she starts accepting the fact that she is a human monster and that doesn’t mean she has to be evil. She starts out not wanting to use her abilities for the war but over time she realizes that she can use the abilities of a human monster to help the war. I love Brigan even though he was cold in the beginning. The other characters are amazing and are well developed. They were entertaining to read. They had me laugh, and they had me frown.

I highly recommend this book. Especially those who love Fantasy genre and the Romance genres. There are times when sex is implied, but it is not explicit. So that is why I would categorize this in Teen. It is still a wonderful read, and I also recommend it to adults too. This book definitely categorizes as a favorite for me. Hope you give this a chance.

Keep your friends close...and your enemies closer.

Rachel Clancy has had to learn the hard way that you can't always trust who you know.

Born with a specific set of genes that lets her fight monsters, Rachel has trained her entire life to kill vampires and werewolves. Unprepared for the level of deception and betrayal she faces as she journeys Upwards to battle her enemies, it's not long before Rachel finds herself on a quest that will alter the lives of everyone she knows.


Including Rachel's...


Review


Sixteen-year-old Warrior Rachel Clancy lives in a post-apocalyptic world where humankind was almost wiped out thirty years before she was born because of werewolves and vampires. This end of the world moment is known as Armageddon. In this apocalyptic world, some humans have a special gene, and these Warriors are relied on to kill these monsters and keep the non-Warrior human safe. Rachel was supposed to go out with others her age but was gets sent out on an unprecedented Upward. The Upward that is unprecedented happens because of Dr. Isaac Icahn who suggested it. He's known and viewed as the man who saved humankind from dying out by discovering the Warrior gene. Rachel was expected to die from this Upward which was a revenge plan for Dr. Isaac Icahn because Rachel’s father allowed Isaac’s daughter to die. While Rachel is out, she gets, attacked by some vampires. She was about to die when a werewolf kills the vampires. She ends up making it to her destination but ends up being knocked out. She wakes up to a handsome werewolf and one of his sisters. While Rachel is with her is with these werewolves she starts questioning if werewolves are really the enemy. She also learns that someone she knows might actually be the one behind Armageddon.

I am first going to state the ONLY thing that almost stopped me from continuing. First, I want to say is that I was almost not going to finish because I liked the main love interest and at one point I thought I wouldn’t be happy with the way it was going. Though I am so happy I continued to read it because I ended up wanting the main love interest to be someone else. I had a feeling the person who I am rooting for now would be a potential and I, am so happy they are. That was the only reason why I would want to stop, but I loved every other moment.

The main character Rachel I like as a character, but her only flaw is that she is naive when it comes to love. Being naive usually bothers me but she is only sixteen so, it didn’t bother me as much. Actually, I think it helped the story in a way with how it ended and also it showed that she still has much to learn and grow as a character. Not just a sixteen-year-old who doesn’t have much room to grow and learn as a character. Now onto Jason the main love interest. In the beginning, I rooted for him and at one point was worried that they wouldn’t be together. Though I got to a point, when I stopped rooting for him, and I was hoping she wouldn’t want to be with him. I am now rooting for someone else, and his name is Chad, who I can’t wait to see more of in the next book. For Dr. Isaac, I don’t like him, and I will never like him as a person. Though I do like him as the antagonist and I do wish to see more of him. There are other characters I can go on about but I won’t.

I love the idea of this post-apocalyptic world and the story that goes with it. I definitely want to continue this story, and I hope to see more action and romance too. I think Rebecca Royce did an awesome job on this and I think she did an awesome way to end this book of Rachel’s story. When I am about to stop I usually don’t get pulled back in but with this book, I ended up pulled back in, and I want more.

I am honest when I write my reviews, and I give this book five stars. You might be wondering why I might be giving five stars even though my opinions of Rachel and what caused me almost to stop. Well, the reason why is because to me being naive is a necessity and I actually liked it because Rachel’s character should be naive in some category of her life. She is 16 and love should be the category. Then the relationship with Jason I was able to be pulled back in which is an accomplishment. Since usually when I check out I am out. So those two accomplishments give the rating bonus points. So excited to continue.

Knox and Harper's story continues as the Las Vegas lair - and its two infamous Co-Primes - face their most terrifying enemy yet . . .
Together, Harper and Knox have overcome just about every evil thing you can think of - from Horsemen of the Apocalypse to dark magic practitioners to Lucifer's insistent belief that he's hilarious. They're looking forward to some well-earned downtime - until Harper is attacked by mercenaries in the middle of her tattoo shop. Worse still, the attackers are trying to take her wings - the ones no one is meant to know she even has.
It's a near miss and once a furious Knox has managed to pull his demon back into line there's only one thing clear - someone knows Harper's secrets and is systematically setting out to destroy her. It seems likely that someone is the third Horseman - but how do they know so much about Harper? It seems the impossible might be true - they have an enemy hiding at the very heart of the lair.
To survive Harper will need to embrace power that's darker than she's ever experienced and even Knox can't protect her from everything - though God knows nothing's going to stop him trying. The stakes have never been higher, for if Harper's taken by this new threat, Knox won't be able to stop his demon from taking a vicious pleasure in tearing the world apart . . .




Review



In this book Knox and Harper have to find out who is after Harper and tried to take her wings. They think it could possibly be a horseman behind the attacks. Harper is also coping with the fact that she killed her half-brother from in book two. To add to that they end up finding out about a changeling who they think he is dangerous and strange. When someone starts going after not just Harper but also her family members too things they start questioning if Harper is really the target. People are expecting the two remaining horsemen to lie low for a while but with what is going on they don’t know if a horseman is behind the attacks or not. When Harper and Knox find out something about Harper, the ensurance of her safety is more important than ever.
The characters are enjoyable as ever and badass too. Can’t forget to mention that Know is sexy as ever too. Harper is still her independent self but in this book she takes some steps back and listens to Knox more but for reasons that she realizes that she should do that. The villain in this book was someone who I didn’t expect and I was thinking of possible people. Usually I expect the unexpected villain.
I give this book 5 stars. I loved reading every minute of it and can’t wait for the next book. I just hope the next book isn’t the last. I had no issues with this book. Think this is so far the best in the series. Suzanne Wright didn’t let me down with this one.

Being Alpha
Aileen Erin
(Alpha Girl #7)
Published by: Ink Monster LLC
Publication date: February 13th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult
For the first time since Tessa met Dastien, life is quiet. The evil witch, Luciana, is six glorious feet under, St. Ailbe’s is closed due to human trespassers, and people are finally getting used to the fact that supernaturals exist in the world. It seems like the perfect time for a honeymoon.
Tessa and Dastien’s trip to the Caribbean is turning out to be the honeymoon that fantasies are made of—sunset cruises, long walks on the beach, and every romantic cliché you can imagine. She couldn’t be happier. So, when a local man turns up inexplicably dead on the beach, Tessa brushes it off. Not every bad thing that happens in the world is a supernatural mystery to be solved. And when Sebastian—one of the Council of Seven Alphas who rule all the werewolves—appears on the island, she thinks it must be a coincidence. Everyone needs a break now and then. Even council members. Right? Besides, Tessa is beyond determined to not let anything get in the way of her romantic vacation.
But when Dastien goes missing, the honeymoon is most definitely over. Tessa can’t ignore the signs anymore. Something huge is going on. And whoever messed with Tessa’s mate is in for a rude awakening. Because if there’s one thing fighting rogue witches and werewolves has taught her, it’s how to be Alpha.
