Review: A Touch of Crimson by Sylvia Day

Can a love that transcends death survive a war between angels, vampires, and lycans?

An angel with immense power and insatiable desire, Adrian Mitchell leads an elite Special Ops unit of the seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen--angels who have become vampires--and command a restless pack of indentured lycans.

But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals--losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her: Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body that doesn't remember him. This time he won't let her go.

With no memory of her past as Shadoe, Lindsay Gibson knows only that she can't help being fiercely attracted to the smoldering, seductive male who crosses her path. Swept into a dangerous world of tumultuous passion and preternatural conflict, Lindsay is soon caught between her angel lover, her vampire father, and a full-blown lycan revolt. There's more at stake than her love and her life--she could lose her very soul...

After reading the Crossfire series I had high hopes for this book...
while the story was good I just found it lacking details. It could have been so much better and I think seeing the potential in it ruined what was actually there.

For the most part its a good book, but it's not something that I'll be continuing on with. It didn't keep my attention and there really isn't anything significant that happens as far as action, or even romance. A few small trysts in the bedroom and mentions of fights, but where are the details?
For all the talk about Adrian being a hunter and always in the field there was no action. If he is SO worried about them changing her over, why didn't he try to get there to stop it instead of wondering if it happened and a few weeks later the enemy just drops her off at the doorstep no questions asked?! Why did Shadoe just give up in the end without a fight after holding on for centuries? 

It just didn't work for me, but that's not to say that it doesn't appeal to other people - I just prefer lots of action in my books! 

3 stars...

Review: A Hunger Like No Other, by Kresley Cole

A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her...

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy...

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents—until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae—and their notorious dark desires—ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all-consuming desire...

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?


This is another book that I downloaded from an audible.com sale.

I was quite pleased with this one. It took some getting used to listening to a man tell the story, and at first I found myself giggling when he would attempt the woman's voice, but after a while I was too engrossed in the story to pay any attention to the sounds.

This is an engaging book from start to finish. There is always some type of action going on, whether its a fight or play time. I would say bedroom time, but that wasn't always the case. What more do you expect from a wolf though?

Usually I hate books that flip flop from one character to the other, but in this case, the way it was written, made it all the more enjoyable. It was frustrating at times to know they were both thinking the same thing but assuming something different about the other... but that's what reading is all about. Finding yourself invested in the characters lives and feeling emotions as they do.

This is definitely a series I will continue with!

Reivew: Be Mine Tonight, by: Kathryn Smith

I am called Chapel.

For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past—when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

Never have I known a maiden the like of Prudence Ryland, whose beauty and spirit awaken a heart I feared long cold and dead. But her young life is slipping away, and she also seeks the deliverance of the Grail—unaware that the cost of her search could be her soul. I must help Prudence, for in six hundred years, no other woman has stirred my passions so. But dare I tender to my beloved that which she most desires—the sensuous "gift" of forever that is both rapture and a curse: my immortal kiss?

  I listened to the audio book, and it took a few chapters for me to get used to the voice, but as the story progressed and became more interesting I payed no attention to the voice and just focused on what it was saying. 

A little slow in the beginning, but once it gets going you must know how it ends. There are several twists and turns along the way, a few of them I actually didn't see coming, and that's always a good thing! Nearing the end of the story is quite emotional, and I just knew that was it... it was going to be a sad love story. BUT the author surprised me with a few happier chapters to end the book!

I downloaded this book during a sale on Audible.com and am really quite glad I gave it a shot.

Books on SALE

Newly released, Forsaken, an Academy of the Fallen novel (#4) is only $4.99 on Amazon! Get your copy now!

I don’t know how much time has passed. I don’t even know what is real and what isn’t. There are times where for a matter of minutes, I’m in a dark place. The room is dirty, warm, and I’m alone. My hands and legs are bruised and I feel weak. I want to fight. I want to find my dagger and go after whoever is doing this to me, but I can’t. I feel the wards around me, but those wards are different than the ones that protected the Academy. These are dark and keep me from using my nephilim abilities. For the rest of the time, I’m always with Hunter, and we are at the Academy, but there is never anyone else around us. It’s just him and me, and everything should feel perfect, but I don’t trust any of it. It’s all too perfect and life never is.
