Review: Silver Shadows, Bloodlines #5, Richelle Mead

Silver Shadows
Bloodlines Series
book 5
Richelle Mead

Paranormal Romance 
Published: July 29, 2014

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

In The Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists.

Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive.

For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .

Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.


Silver Shadows definitely brought back the action. No longer did I find myself lost in thought while reading, this book was a page turner.

This book read more like the original Vampire Academy series, packed with action and an actual romance. Their relationship no longer felt uneasy and childish as it did in the previous books- it was all love and finally being comfortable with it once they found each other again. I guess being held captive will put things into perspective for you..

There were a few side stories developing in the background and I see either another spin off series or a larger portion of the future books being dedicated to these characters. (Marcus and his group of runaway alchemists, specifically Duncan and his gf)

I was a little disappointed in the wedding.. I mean, it's a monumental life changing event and it seemed to hold no importance, it's almost as though it was thrown in as an after thought. Adrian went through all the trouble to make it as perfect as it could be under the circumstances, but of the entire book the wedding details took up all of a couple pages. I just think it should have been a more prominent part of the story; this is where she should have paused and added the extra details - how the two felt while it was happening despite the trouble they were in, let them say I Do.. It could have been SO much better. 

Other then that one complaint, I loved it! Silver Shadows was definitely one of the better books in this spin off so far! I'm excited for another book, especially after the hell of a cliff hanger we are left with!

Review: 3 erotic romances by Pam McKenna

Binding Agreement
Pam McKenna

Genre: Erotic Romance
Publisher: BookTrope Publishing

Book Description: 

A chance encounter on a moonlit beach draws sensible, cautious Kay Denehy into a night of anonymous passion and surrender with a ruthlessly dominant stranger. As John Randall introduces her to the exotic thrills of bondage and discipline, she discovers who she really is under the prim schoolteacher exterior—a sexual submissive who needs the strict and ardent guidance of a take-no-prisoners Dom like him.

John carries more than his share of emotional baggage, the result of a tragedy for which he feels responsible. Though he cares for Kay, he refuses to pursue a relationship, certain he could only bring her pain. He pushes her away even as his unconscious dream self turns her into a sex slave to be punished and enjoyed ménage-style by two other zealous and demanding Doms.

For the first time in her life, Kay knows what she needs, and who she needs, to be sexually and emotionally fulfilled. She knows, too, the path John must take to escape his dark places—if only he’ll trust her to lead the way.

The photo session turns into a BDSM marathon as Kon introduces Darla to the erotic pleasures of bondage, spanking, and complete sexual submission—all under the unforgiving lens of his camera. Never has Darla imagined herself on the receiving end of such treatment, or guessed the ecstasy it would bring her.

Kon has been burned by three expensive divorces and refuses to acknowledge his emotional connection to Darla. He taught her to embrace a part of herself she never knew existed. Will he let her return the favor?

Faking It
Pam McKenna

Garrett’s art-expert buddy Jack turns her punishment into a ménage à trois—his reward for spotting the forgery. Garrett and Jack are both inventive, energetic lovers, but only one touches her heart.

Only one makes her yearn for something real, even after she discovers she’s not the only one keeping secrets. Once the week is up, she’ll never see him again.

Months later, her past returns with a vengeance, testing both her courage and the depth of her ex-lover’s feelings.

Review: City of Heavenly Fire, Mortal Instruments #6

City of Heavenly Fire
The Mortal Instruments
book 6, The End
Cassandra Clare

YA Paranormal, Fantasy

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!


City of Heavenly Fire was long... much longer than the other books in the series. It was really slow in parts and I found myself wandering in thought instead of paying attention to the words. Finally it picks up the pace and for once they are all fighting together to save someone else instead of trying to rescue each other.

I feel like a good portion of this book is a set up for a spin off series (which I do not plan on reading) I could have done without all the side story with the orphaned children, and in turn that would have shortened the book. However, I'm glad that everyone got their happily ever after and it seemed like the perfect time to end the series. Anymore and it would have been repetitive, I mean, how many different ways can a group of teenagers save the world?

Poor Simon seemed to get the worst of it from beginning to end.. turned into a rat, a vampire, a daylighter, stripped of immortality and memories to be returned to mundane life... only to be turned into a possible shadowhunter. Really? I still don't get the appeal for Magnus, why a 400 year old warlock would love an 18 year old is beyond me. Jace finally figuring out and accepting who he is and basically asking Clary to marry him, and Maya finally happy and in charge.

What I don't understand is the conversation between Zachariah and Tessa that suggests a repeating pattern with the families, but my guess is that it's another of the storylines that will be followed in the possible spinoff series. Who knows.

Good series, glad it's over. 

4 stars.

Review: City of Lost Souls, Mortal Instruments #5

City of Lost Souls
 The Mortal Instruments
book 5
Cassandra Clare

Young adult Paranormal, Fantasy

The New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments continues—and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon.

What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.


City of Lost Souls was much better than City of Fallen Angels, the action is definitely back!
It started off a little slow and I was gearing up for more disappointment, but a few chapters in and the pace picked up.

As I mentioned in my review of CoFA, there were more story lines to follow in this book, so it wasn't just Clary crying over Jace... (there seems to be a pattern in these books, one always needs saving; why can't they save someone else together?!) 

Anyway, we follow the strange love story of Alec and Magnus. (Alec comes off as such a baby to me. Yeah, your boyfriend is 800 years old, I'm sure he's had a few partners... get over it. It's really annoying) The typical teenage relationships between Simon and Izzy, and Jordan and Maya. (how sad is it that the closest thing to typical teenagers in this series is a daylighter vamp with a shadowhunter, and the tragic love story of two orphaned wolfs?!)There is the hint of the Lightwood parents relationship throughout the book, and of course Clary's mom and Luke. 
   And then there is the strange relationship between Clary, Jace, and Sebastian. At one point you almost feel bad for the guy, but then just can't - and you want to yell at Clary for being stupid, really stupid. 

I do like that Clary hasn't just forgive her mother, and everything is back to normal. She stands up for herself, and I think Isabelle stands up to Clary's mom because she can't bring herself to stand up to her own parents yet. 

There were some slow parts, and a few small parts that should have been taken out in editing... they were pointless to the story because nothing came from it. It's as if it was a possible idea that was forgotten and never explored. Other parts were built up to be something so important, and then were over in a few sentences like it was nothing.. no big deal. 

With that said, overall it was a good read. I'd give it 3.5 - 4 stars.

F.M. Sherrill:

Aren't author's bios boring? I always wanted to read one that went something like this:

F.M. Sherrill: recent citizen of earth. Plans on ruling the planet once she gets over the common cold. Or, F.M. Sherrill: time traveler. Decided to alter the space-time continuum by writing a novel, thus changing history slightly, which will eventually lead to the rise of a new human species.

But here it is. F.M. Sherrill is a novelist, A.K.A. an avid bullshitter; that's why she lives in L.A.. She's been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. When she's not writing, she's making steampunk weapons, sewing giant plant-eater Mario plushes, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.

Review: City of Fallen Angels, Mortal Instruments #4, by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels
The Mortal Instruments
book 4
Cassandra Clare

Young Adult Paranormal, Fantasy

The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.


I'd have to give this a 3.5 star.

This book definitely has the feel of pushing a series further than the original storyline.
It was good, it just didn't flow as smoothly as the previous 3 books.

What didn't help is that I've been listening to the series on and for whatever reason they changed the narrators on this book and they were horrible! The guy sounds like a 30 year old British man for Simon and a knock off Sylvester Stallone for Jace! The woman sounded like a whiny 12 year old that is trying way to hard to enunciate each word for Clary. It was really quite ridiculous.

Back to the book though, There was a lot going on in this one. There are several different story lines beginning to form with each of the characters and I expect the rest of the series to be very busy. City of Fallen Angels was more of an emotional downer. Everyone seems to be heart broken and self punishing. Jace was super annoying in this one for me; I mean, you didn't learn in the first 3 books that if there is something wrong you should say something instead of trying stay away from Clary to protect her... sigh. This book was extremely frustrating at times and I had to walk away for a while; far from the previous books where I had to make myself turn it off for bed. There are a few action sequences, mostly drama, and a few scenes that seem pointless - perhaps they'll make more sense in a future book.

Overall it was an okay read. I'm sure it would have been much better had I not been picturing Sylvester Stallone reading the book into a microphone. lol

Books Aren't Just for Reading by Laina Turner

Books Aren’t Just For Reading
Laina Turner
Genre: Cozy mystery/chick lit
Release Date: January 12, 2014


Trixie and her friends, Berklie and Sophie, are excited about the opening of Read/Wine their new business venture of a bookstore/wine bar. All is going well until they happen to find a dead body in the shop and that wasn’t part of the business plan. All signs pointed to Berklie since it was her ex-husbands lover who was murdered. Trixie knew Berklie hadn’t murdered Sylvia so who did?

Author’s Bio:

As a child Laina thought she would either be a truck driver (thanks to Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit) or work at Taco Bell (her favorite restaurant as a child). As she grew older she realized her talents lay in academics and business and for the last several years has been a business consultant and college professor where she uses the analytical side of her brain and not the side that makes up stories.

Through all her career choices she has continued to have a passion for writing. This stemmed from childhood whereas an only child she developed a vivid imagination spending most of her time making things up and thinking the Incredible Hulk lived in her closet.

Proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing to being on the dance team for a semi pro basketball team to being a mom of 2 amazing kids, she tells her family and friends that no one is safe from their escapades slipping in to her books.

Taking the plunge to write books that she actually lets people read in 2010, she has worked her way up to having 5 fans (maybe 6 now). Her blog, The Art Of Living Fabulously, was launched to share the daily fun in the life of a Real Housewife of the Midwest along with the musing of other fabulous ladies.

The sexy, secretive Mr. Ward now makes his home on an isolated island near the coast, so Maddy takes up residence nearby to find out why this enigmatic man lives in such a secluded place.

As Maddy plunges into the case, she and Adam are drawn together. Should she fight her growing attraction to a possibly dangerous man?

Review: City of Glass (Mortal Instruments #3) Cassandra Clare

City of Glass
The Mortal Instruments  
Book 3
Cassandra Clare

To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters - never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City - whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.


    This series definitely doesn't disappoint, if anything it's getting better with each book.

     City of Glass picks up exactly where City of Ashes left off - Clary rushing off to Idris to find a magical cure for her mother. Cassandra Clare has a way with words, she describes everything in such a manner that there is an incredible amount of detail with there being too much. You can actually picture the things she describes, but it's not an overwhelming annoying detailed list like a few authors I've read. It's somehow perfect.

    Clary and Jace both annoyed me at times with the apparent blindness they have for each others feelings, Simon is finally becoming a man now that he actually will never look like one, and the other characters are growing in the background as well. I wasn't surprised when the truth came out, but it did make me feel better that it was finally in print for everyone to read. 

    There are tons of twists and turns in this book, plenty of action and emotion, and if the series were to end now it would be a good trilogy, with a few loose ends as possibilities. Luckily for us, she continued writing! I can't wait to start the next book.

Young Adult Paranormal, Fantasy


Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries?

If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go — especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil — and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings — and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right in on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.


I really enjoyed this book. As the second in a series I expected it to loose a little of the story as most series do, but it exceeded my expectations and brought more action and adventure with it.

Clary is still underestimated by everyone and Jace is as arrogant as always, but we learn more about some of the other characters in this book. We get a closer look at Magnus, finally meet the Lightwoods, and get a better understanding of the inner workings of the clave. We are also pulled into the crazy that is Valentine.

Cassandra Clare has gifted us with tons of twists and turns; just when you think you have it figured out she hits you with something new and you have a renewed since of urgency to get to the end and find out what happens! The ending is an emotional roller coaster that leaves you begging for the third book, City of Glass.
