SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews

I love reading and as long as I have my tablet loaded with a hopefully good book to read I'm happy. 

I read a little of everything.

 

Tail & Trouble by Victor Catano

Tail and Trouble - Victor M. Catano

  

syns

 

When Gabriel’s witch girlfriend doesn’t return from her latest trip, he gets on the road and heads out to find her. Sheila's coven is secretive and distrustful of Gabriel, so the only help he has is Sheila's familiar, a bulldog named Orson, who is psychically linked to both of them.

In Florida, they walk right into an elaborate plan to steal Orson. A mysterious wizard named Yareth is behind the plot, and he may also know where Sheila is.

Gabriel and Orson will have to fight for their lives as they navigate around all the magical roadblocks to force Yareth’s hand. They won’t give up until Sheila is safe.

 

 

 

my though

 

 

I really wasn’t sure what to expect staring this book but it was not that. I really enjoyed this book, the story and the characters. All of them, even the four legged ones. It was a unique, funny and suspenseful story to follow. I liked the characters, each of them different and yet they all fit together on the page nicely. They also very realistic and often have the feeling you are right there with them. Of course my favorite was Orson, the “talking” talk. Okay he was not really talking but rather communicating with both Gabe and Shelia telepathically since he is linked to both of them. Even though he is only Sheila’s familiar. He often is witty and funny and sure has a flare for the dramatic. I also liked Gabriel and Sheila, as well all other characters in the book. Overall, it was a great book that sucked me into their world within the first few pages. It had everything I like in books, humor, suspense, action and some light romance. There were a few things that seemed little rushed or some things seemed a bit forced humor but nothing major to take away the joy from the book. Great book and hope to see more from this author. I rate it 4★

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

I have a feeling that things about to go from bad to worse ..... 

Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews

Untitled - Ilona Andrews

 

syns

 

Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she’s faced could have prepared her for this…

Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar…

Kate’s father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in his never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…

 

 

my though

 

 

I don’t even know where to start to review this book. We had so much happening.

The whole book gave me emotional whiplash, I cried, and laughed and swooned even more. We get plenty dark and tender moments in the book but of course we also get the laugh out loud and crazy moments. Only Cate and Curran can make you laugh cry and swoon all on the same page without it seeming wrong.

We once and for all see what Roland is up to and there is no question about it anymore. There were a few confusing moments but in the end it all made sense.

Kate in this book really got to me, just because I thought, we see a rawer side of her.  But also we see her struggle with all her power and how to handle it.  We get some really tender moments with her and I really just wanted to hug and hold her. (In a not creepy way lol)

Curran, I thought I couldn’t love him anymore but I was so wrong.

Julie and Derrick really have grown up so much and I really just adore them. Julie is just becoming so smart, strong and independent. I’m still rooting for her and Derrick to get their own series lol.

We learn some surprising but fun things about Christopher. I was really sure how I felt about but it all came really nicely together.

I really loved Roman in this book, he was just plain hilarious and often lightened the mood.

I also really liked that we see Mahoon, coming around to be a bit friendlier, Martha of course is just lovely as ever.

The one person that disappointed me a little after all books and all the things that have happened was Jim.  I thought he was a big jerk in this book. I kind of could see where he is coming from but still overall did not really care for him.

Overall we have a great book , with a lots of action , love, humor and sad moments. Of course there are battles some bigger than others but also we again lose some people.

On the flip side. We gets someone back who turns out to be unlikely ally of Kate and crew , which I really enjoyed.

I rate this book a full 5 ★ and the next book cannot get here fast enough.

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

“No sacrificial pit ringed with skulls?” I asked.

“Ha. Ha.” Roman rolled his eyes. “Never heard that one before. I keep the virgins chained up in the basement. Do you want some coffee?”

***

He stared at me. A muscle jerked in his temple. Oh no. I’ve give the Beast Lord apoplexy. That seemed to be my calling in life.

“Are you okay?”

“I’m trying to decide if I really heard what you said or if somehow by brain quit on me and I hallucinated.”

“Take your time.”

***

“Did you run any of this by Curran?”

“I told him I was about to do something idiotic and dangerous, and he told me to go ahead and let him know if he could help in any way.”

“I don’t understand your relationship.”

***

‘Why are you bring so nice all of the sudden?”

“Well, since you got my sword back, I figure I can be cordial for a day or two. It will wear off.”

***

Sex Hell by Joe Canzano

Sex Hell - Joe Canzano

 

syns

 

When Debbie de La Fontaine tries to spice up her love life by supernaturally tampering with her sex life, she is cursed to spend every future encounter in a magical place called "Sex Hell," where the sex is ludicrous and amazing--but the romance is scarce.

Her only chance for escape is through the stingy clues supplied by a laughing demon, and the only way to obtain the clues is by returning to Sex Hell again and again to have outrageous sexcapades with the man she most wants to avoid--or does she?

Sex Hell is an absurd comic fantasy about the confusion of relationships. How is love related to sex, and how is sex related to love--and do love and sex need to be related at all?

*This book contains profanity and adult situations

 

 

my though

 

This book was something altogether really different from what I usually read in romance books. But that being said I really enjoyed it. It was supper hilarious and I had many laugh out loud moments reading this book. As the title is Sex Hell we don’t get the sweet, with rainbow romance story, this is the complete opposite. A couple that is in a slump when it comes to their sex life and wanting to spice it up. That leads to often award and really weird situation. But yet super funny to the reader. Overall I thought it was kind of unique and really clever funny and enjoyed it a lot. I rate it 4 ★

Torn (A Wicked Saga #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Torn - Jennifer L. Armentrout

  

syns


Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

 

 

my though

 

 

I really loved this book and not just because I’m a JLA fan .

 I loved the first book which introduced us to Ivy, Ren and Tink, and their world. Ivy and Ren are members of The Order or Elites both organizations that keep the world free of fae. And Tink being a brownie in hiding in our world.

This book starts shortly where the last book ended and throws us right into the whirlwind of events and emotions happening in this book.

I thought this book was a bit darker than the last one and of not for Tink’s comic relief it would have been a lot darker.

I really loved Ivy in this book, no matter what was thrown at her she never gave up and was hanging on for dear life to stay true to herself. She was tested more than once and really always just came back out stronger. She endured quite a bit in this book, both emotional and physical. 

Ren, was also pretty great, but he did have his moment, but really it just all made sense and anything else would have been hard to believe. I really like how much he is growing and becoming softer yet stronger at the same time. I think we will see some more surprises about him in book three, but I also might be wrong.

Tink, well I wish I had my own Tink …… I really do. I would just not have amazon prime lol. We learn some surprising new facts about him and that makes me like him even that much more. He still is super funny and has plenty of hilarious things to say. But we also see a more tender site of him. His constant back and forth with Ren is till happening.

Drake, well he is one class A jerk, but at the same time I kind of liked him . Just something about him that I can’t not explain….. Of course I know he is the villain but there is something about him that intrigues me about him.

Overall, great book plenty of surprises but also some things were pretty predictable but it was still great, We still had plenty of action , suspense, humor and of course Ren & Ivy scenes.

I really looking forward to the next book and maybe secretly hoping Tink gets his own books somehow.

I rate this book at 4 ½ ★

Royal Obsession (Royal #3) by Megan Maldonado

Royal Obsession (Royal Series) - Megan Maldonado

  

syns

 

 

FIRE KINGDOM—CARMELLA & DEREK

Everything comes with a price…

For Carmella Woods, daughter of the prestigious and highly favored Lord Woods, feeling caged is no novelty. Her entire life has been designed in the hopes to make her fit, to adapt to what her parents perceive as respectable, honorable. Not doing so has high, unthinkable consequences. Consequences she has faced in the past, and has lost the fight against in the present.

Doing her best to be an obedient daughter and keep her essence—her spark—has proven quite difficult, especially since the favored her father praises are nothing more than a group of superficial bigots.

Until Derek Warren reenters her life.

Gorgeous, egocentric Derek Warren. Womanizing, dangerous Derek Warren.

After being fiercely rejected by Prince Derek, Carmella can hardly glance at him without feeling enraged. Though that quickly changes as her life is swooped into a whirlwind, with the prince at the center of the chaos—of the blaze. A link to who she truly is.

In a battle between past and present, truth and lies, Carmella must decide whether to fight the licks of flame that threaten to consume her, or embrace them.

 

 

my though

 

 

This is the third book in the series but it is released out of order as the second book. Why? I’m not sure, but it doesn’t seem confusing with the overall story arc .

Anywho, we met both Carmella and Derek both in the first book “Royal Bond”, I really liked Carmella already but now having read even more about her, I love her even more.

She is fun, honest, and strong, doesn’t give up and makes pretty good choices, well most the time. She also adapts [pretty fast, I thought. We also learn more about how she met Derik before and how badly that went over. Overall I really enjoyed her.

Derick on the other hand I didn’t care for that much …. At the beginning I wanted to strangle him more than once. But I must say that he did grow on me over time the more I learned about him.

We also see some familiar faces from the last book, which was nice, The overall story arc was great and we continue to learn more and more about the world anfd other players.

I must say I like this book a little better than the last, that it might be because I liked the two main characters a little better.

Overall great book that left us hanging with a major cliffhanger ….. I cannot wait for the next book to be released.

I rate it at 4 ★

Fight Me (Rivers Edge #2) by Lacey Black

Fight Me (Rivers Edge Book 2) - Lacey Black

 

syns

 

Jake Stevens has it made. A local police officer with an open invitation to any number of beds around town, Jake has no desire to settle down with any of the ladies he entertains by night. After watching his best friend fall in love with his little sister, Jake is certain that love and marriage just aren’t in his cards. Heck, he’s not even playing with the same deck.

After Jake encounters a blast from the past one night, he finds himself swimming in uncharted waters. For the first time, Jake has found a woman he can’t get out of his mind. The kicker? The woman wants nothing to do with him.

Erin Anderson returns to the small Missouri town of Rivers Edge for a job after a twenty year absence. Erin spent years loathing the memory of Jake Stevens for his cruelness back in seventh grade. Now, Jake appears to be the same self-centered player he was in junior high, and no one seems to be able to push her button the way the cocky, yet devastatingly handsome cop does.

Between circumstances that keep thrusting them together and Jake’s persistence to annoy her, Erin struggles to fight her growing feelings for Jake. But, can Erin get past the hurt she felt all those years ago at the hands of a young Jake? Can Jake show Erin that what they have is worth fighting for?

 

 

my though

 

 

This is the second book in the Rivers Edge series. It can be read as a standalone but it better to read in order of the series to get a better feel of the characters and family dynamic. I absolutely loved this book and lacey Black has done it again. Pulled me into the story and the characters very early on. I loved how Jake and Erin could not have been more different form each other and yet they made the perfect couple. Both are super stubborn and they clash quite a bit but in the end they attraction to each other is just too much to handle. It was sexy, funny and some suspense, overall a very fun read. What I love about lacey Black’s books so far is that the characters, environment and story are so relatable and most of all likeable. I also really enjoyed that the entire family plays so such a big part of the story and yet does not take away from the main couple. We still get a lot of Avery and Maddox as well as the rest of the family as they prepare for the wedding. I just also add that I just love Mrs. Steven. Overall another great book and I for sure will continue to read the rest of the Edge Rivers series and other books written by Mrs. Black I rate it 4 ½ ★ would have given it another 5★ but there were some slower parts in the book. Not bad and still very enjoyable but enough to knock half a point of.

Trust Me (Rivers Edge #1) by Lacey Black

Trust Me (Rivers Edge Book 1) - Lacey Black

  

syns

 

After all of the devastating betrayals by the one she loved, Twenty-two year old Avery Stevens has spent three years raising her daughter alone, with her family and best friend as a support system, never leaving her small hometown of Rivers Edge, Missouri. Though Rivers Edge holds the pain of her past, it also holds the one person she wants but can’t have – her brother’s best friend, Maddox Jackson. When she learns the attraction might not be one-sided, will Avery be able to trust Maddox with the one thing she’s held onto tightly for the past few years?

Police officer Maddox Jackson is a ladies’ man with one foot out the door. Never planning to settle down, Maddox fights the attraction he feels for his best friend’s little sister, Avery. But can he continue to fight it when his body and his heart are leading him to the one woman he shouldn’t want?

When secrets are finally exposed, can Avery and Maddox trust each other enough to overcome the past, handle the present, and preserve their future? Can Avery trust Maddox with her heart? Will Maddox be able to convince Avery to take the chance?

 

my though

 

This is my second book by this author. I came across her by accident and really loved what I read. I decided to check out more books by her. So happy I did. I think I feel in love with both characters by the second chapter. Both, Avery and Maddox are really realistic and charming in their own way but together it is just almost too much. I always enjoy romance novels that involve a single parent if it is done right and that it is in this case. The kid was really great written into the story and it just fit so prefect. There were some moments I really loved and I had tears in my eyes. The end for all three of them was just perfect and I loved the way Maddox include Bean in everything. I just really enjoyed the story, the characters and the world building. Just really nice written and very well balanced, which made it a very smooth and enjoyable read. I just want to hand out this book to everyone I come across, lol. It is funny, sexy, some suspense and easy to read. Overall awesome book and I will for sure read the second one in the series and more books by Lacey Black. If you have not ready any books by her I highly recommend them. I rate this book 5 ★

Undone, Volume 1 (Undone #1) by Callie Harper

Undone, Volume 1 - Callie Harper

 

syns

 

Take one bad boy rock god. Mix slowly with one wholesome librarian. Add a dash of paparazzi, a twist of scandal, and you won’t believe how good this dish tastes.

Ash It’s pretty easy being a rock god. Party. Perform. P*ssy. Repeat. I’m 26 and it’s worked for me for years. Until I was caught ripping out the heart of America’s Sweetheart in a video gone viral. Now #HatePlayerAsh is trending on Twitter, she’s writing a song about how much I suck and I’m in desperate need image rehab, fast. Good thing paparazzi chased me into that library. Had I not ducked under that desk I never would have found myself next to the long, sexy legs and disapproving gaze of Anika Ivanov. In my world of use and get used, she’s a unicorn. A kind, 24-year-old, hard-working, family-oriented children’s librarian. My agent agrees, she’s the one to set everything right. All she needs to do is fake a month-long public romance, let the world see me fall hard for her, then dump me in a brutal, public display. It’s genius. Now I just have to convince her to agree. And convince myself that the only reason I want to spend the month with her is to improve my image. It’s not her full, luscious lips or her soft, seductive laugh or those fantasies I keep having of tying her down to my bed as I make her quiver and pant and call out my name.

Ana Ash Black. In my library. Under my desk. It’s hard to believe it happened. I’ve listened to his voice so many times, my favorite soundtrack as I walk the streets of New York. My secret bad boy crush, the smoldering, shirtless star of the tabloids, all muscles and tattoos. Then one day he shows up and kisses me in my break room. What’s even crazier is how he wants me to spend the next month. At his shows in L.A., San Francisco and Vegas, candlelight dinners in New York and Paris. He wants the world to believe he’s fallen in love. With me. I’ve got to say no. He’s a walking disaster with a dirty mouth and wicked hands that melt my panties right off of me. This month would take everything in my well-ordered, neat little life and shake it up like a snowglobe. Then why am I so tempted to say yes?

NOTE: Undone is a three-volume hot adult romance. It’s the second story in the Beg for It series about the dominant, alpha males in Ash’s family and the strong, sexy women who make them finally meet their match.

 

 

my though

 

 

I knew I would like this book when I was reading the first few pages. I liked the concept of falling in love while just pretending to be a couple, two [people who could not be more different form each other, but yet so right for each other. I really liked both Ash and Ana, both for different reasons. They were fun to read. Sweet, sexy, funny but also uncertain. I couldn’t help but root for them even when I had moment I wanted to shake them. But I also felt das for one or both of them for some things that is thrown at them. Overall, great story and I can’t wait to see how it continues for Ash and Ana in the next book. I rate it 4 ★

Destroy Me (Crystal Gulf #1) by Shana Vanterpool

Destroy Me (Crystal Gulf Book 1) - Shana Vanterpool

 

syns

 

Bach lives his life with honesty and without restraints, happy to be known as a sexy as all hell, unapologetic asshole.

When he drinks, he drinks hard.

When he wants a woman, he makes sure she knows it.

When he opens his mouth, it’s either to piss someone off or to turn someone on.

You can normally find him with one hand on a bottle and one hand on a woman, trying to forget his past.

Harley Evans is a twenty-one-year-old year old college student. She's a good girl who fell hard for Dylan, who’d promised her forever. But Dylan, Bach’s best buddy, lied.

He enlisted in the Army, crushing Harley with equal parts anger and sadness. She’d already lost her father to that choice. Heartbroken, she falls back into depression.

Stuck in Crystal Gulf all summer with little to do, Harley needs a distraction. Enter Bach, sexy as f*#ck distraction, ready and willing.

Dylan’s not all bad though. Before he left, he asked Bach to watch out for Harley, knowing she’d never go for a guy like Bach. She’s too good for him. Too good for anyone.

But Dylan was wrong. He never should have left them together. Bach is there to pick up the pieces Dylan left behind. Soon pieces aren't enough. He wants more, needs more Harley.

 

syns

 

I really had a love-hate relationship with this book. It was total roller coaster ride all the way through. Bach was a rough character to read. He is pretty dark and damaged and is pretty much self-destructing throughout the book. But the more we learn about him the more we can understand where he is coming from and just want to help him. It is a long hard, heart breaking journey for sure. I was not sure what to think of Harley and really didn’t like the way she handled it when Dylan enlisted. She was a real brat in my eyes. I was not a huge fan of her at all. But it did work well for the book Overall, while it was a very dark book it was still very enjoyable and I liked it as a lot, it was heartbreaking and yet fun to read. If you like a darker romance, than I recommend this book.

I rate it 3 ½ ★

Arctic Dawn (The Norse Chronicles #2) by Karissa Laurel

Arctic Dawn - Karissa Laurel

 

syns

Alone and exhausted after her month-long sojourn as a shooting star, Solina Mundy flees to southern California to lie low, recuperate, and plot a survival strategy. The one person she trusts to watch her back is her best friend, Skyla Ramirez. But Skyla has been missing for weeks.

The arrival of a dangerous stranger and the discovery of a legendary weapon of mass destruction forces Solina out of hiding and back into the fight for her life. Solina knows she won’t last long on her own. She must find out what happened to Skyla and unite her contentious allies if she hopes to track down this devastating weapon before her enemies use it to burn the world to ash.

 

my though

 

Finally the second book in The Norse Chronicles is out and I could not wait to get my hands on it. I loved the first book in the series that left us with a huge cliffhanger, But I think I like the second book even better. Ms. Laurel done it again, written a book with the prefect mix of action, suspense, humor and a touch of romance. I love her twist in Norse mythology and how well all of her Character fit in it and just make it their own. I just love her story, her characters and how nicely it all came together. I also love, that while we have Solina as a main character and her story, other side characters and their story or as things unfold are just as important as Solina’s. I love Solina she is super smart and thinks stuff through and not just when it comes to battles. No, also her (kind of non-existing) love life. She not just falls head over heels for the guy and forgets herself or the bigger picture in life. But at the same time that can also be a little frustrating, because there is obviously some pretty chemistry between them. There is a hint of a triangle but then again not really. That part is a little hard to explain without spoiling it, so I will just leave it at that. There are some pretty good twist in this book and some new things come to light about Solina and the people surrounding here and of course not all are good. The end had kind of had a sixth sense effect for me. Once I saw it and thought about it all made sense and there were little subtle hints throughout the book leading up to this shocking conclusion. Of course we are left again we a cliffhanger and have to wait what seems to be an eternity for the next book in the series and if I could I would already pre-order the next book. Overall, another wicked awesome book in the series that I had a hard time putting down. I rate it 4 ½ ★

Tidal Patterns (Golden Shores #1) by Rachelle Paige

Tidal Patterns (Golden Shores Book 1) - Rachelle Paige

 

syns

 

Elizabeth Shaw is the preeminent, and only, wedding planner at the historic beach resort on Jekyll Island. She's sure she'll land the newly created role overseeing all major events. Then she’ll get a raise and won't be forced to leave.

Mark Edwards doesn't need any more stress. He's ready to slow down and enjoy the tiny seaside town he calls home. His boss pushes him to apply for the new management position and he agrees. After a decade in catering, he's sure he can do the events job without any trouble.

Neither counted on the other getting in the way.

 

my though

 

I really liked the concept of this story and thought it was a really neat idea and story. It was a sweet romance which can be an ongoing story arc for other characters. I really liked that they were both going for the same goal. If yet for difference reasons but both trued to stay true to themselves. Also liked that while there was instant attraction, there was not the instant lust and sex and it build up to it sweetly. It really fit While I liked most characters and the villain, I however was not a huge fan of the both of the main characters, sadly. Mark, came over as very whiney and feeling sorry for him. Elizabeth was not as bad but also had some flaws, like always over thinking and thinking about what other people think/ While in most books I like the dual POV, in this book it seemed almost too much and with their “inner ”dialog it all seemed very long. They argued with themselves way to much and often like I said, whiney. Sometimes it just seemed like the same stuff over and over. Overall I thought it was a sweet story, but the characters could have used a bit more work and or less in some points. I rate it 3★

The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson #10) by Darynda Jones

The Curse of Tenth Grave - Darynda Jones

 

syns

 

As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.

There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?

Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murder, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…

 

 

my though

 

 

After the shocking end of the last book I could not wait to get my hands on this book. And I was soo excited when I finally got approved for it (longest 24 hrs ever lol). I really love this series so much. Charley, Reyes, Cookie and Ubie and all the others are like family at this point and I never can get enough of them. Things are not the same between Charley and Reyes ever since they came back from NY a week ago and Charley is trying to figure out what it is. Of course in true Charley fashion she does everything except really talk to him. She tries but Reyes is no help and making light conversation of everything. There is so much going on in this book that I’m not sure how much or little really to say , also not sure where to start . So I will keep this review rather short and just will go with the major points. Both Reyes and Charley have secrets they keeping from each other but both have some really good reasons… or do they ? Some major developments with Beep are happening. Some news about Reyes come to light that could change everything, Someone loses it and is about to destroy a city with their powers. Charley is going a dangerous road to protect the ones she loves and even willing to sacrifice some great and trusted friends. Charley is about to be exposed to the public. She also teams up with a kind of enemy. The whole book is really an rollercoaster ride, we laugh, we swoon, we are shocked and we cry . There is a lot of new things happening and played with in the beginning and throughout and we get a lot of answers at the end. Some we things are older we always wanted to know others new things that came up. Overall it was just another amazing book in the series that will of course left hanging with as huge shocking cliffhanger. I can not wait for the next book. I rate this book a full 5 ★

I had to go through the usual red tape to get to Kit’s office. Metal detector. Pat down. Strip search, but only because I’d asked for one. Guy was hit.

The Sight (Devil's Isle #2) by Chloe Neill

The Sight: A Devil's Isle Novel - Chloe Neill

 

syns

 

The paranormal war that engulfed New Orleans seven years ago is over. But the battle for the city is just beginning . . .

Claire Connolly is a Sensitive, infected with magic when the Veil that divides humanity from the world beyond fell. Magic can easily consume and destroy a Sensitive, and if Claire’s secret is discovered she’ll be locked into the walled district of Devil’s Isle along with every other Paranormal left in the city.

Bounty hunter Liam Quinn discovered Claire’s secret, but refused to turn her in. Together they saved New Orleans from the resurgence of magic that nearly destroyed it. But now a dangerous cult is on the rise, and it will take both Claire and Liam—and magical allies within Devil’s Isle’s towering walls—to defeat the occult threat before magic corrupts them both...

 

my though

 

I loved the first book in the series, but I even love this one even more. Chloe Neill done it again, in writing an awesome book with awesome characters and story. This series is a bit different than what we know from Neill , but still really great. This book start off where the first book stopped and we get action right away. And the aftermath of some events. I loved Claire in this book, strong and fighting for what is right even if it breaks all rules and laws. She is really growing with the story. So is Liam though, he is fighting with Claire but also for so his family and so much more. I like where they story is taking them, together but also individual. Nothing in this book goes right and everything is pretty much falling apart for everyone and the world. There are plenty of twists and nothing is what it seems to be as first. It all turns pretty dark throughout some parts in the book, but with all that we still get snark and humor. It has a great balance and nothing overtakes the other. The world building is still great and I loved it. Overall, loved the book and cannot wait for the next book in the series. I rate it 4 ★

Presence: Caged by Charity Becker

Presence Caged - Charity Becker

 

syns

 

Dark times are ahead for Mina Jewel and those she holds most dear. The return of an old nemesis, impossible creatures stalking the night, and a major threat to every Lycan in Washington State all converge to send Mina spiraling out of control. But that's only the beginning. If Mina can't put the pieces together and solve these mysteries quickly, it won't be only her Lycan comrades that suffer. Presence is in imminent danger, and if Mina fails, it's only a matter of time before the surreptitious organization meets its demise. War is coming, whether Mina is prepared or not. There's no way to save them all, but how will Mina choose who lives and who dies? And can she live with herself after the dust finally settles?

 

my though

 

 I was really nervous starting this book after hearing teasers that we might or might not lose a fan favorite character in this book.  I was thinking that I have a pretty good idea of who it might be going in but the further I got into the book I realized that it is pretty much open season and it could be anyone and anytime. That alone kept me of the edge of my seat the entire book.

Did we lose someone dear to us in this book? I can’t say ! But what I can say that it is a wicked, emotional, scary, gruesome and suspenseful ride through the book.

Never a dull moment and a lot of twists and turns throughout that keep us guessing.

Last we left Mina , she was happy and almost relaxed but that will not last long. She is dragged down the rabbit hole once again, but this time she is not a lone and has someone to keep her grounded and reinsure her. Latrator. He is there for her and reinsures her, when they “naysayer” is working hard to throw her of her game. It was kinda hard to see Mina falling back to her self-doubts and all that but it was good to see that she had someone, telling her otherwise.

An old enemy returns and is after the ones she loves, but Mina first has to figure out who it is that is killing of pack members and is after her and her family.

With Latrator having to deal with health issues and Presence undergoing some really messed up  changes, Mina is almost left alone to deal with it and she is racing the clock trying to safe everyone. But can she save everyone.

There are so many things happening it is hard to mention it all in review without spoilers, but let me tell you it is a wild ride for poor Mina and her clan.

Justice is also acting a little strange and out of character and I’m not sure if I trust him all the way , but then again after seeing Mina receiving a major blow from friends and loved ones I’m not sure if I should trust anyone at this  point .

The ending was a killer cliffhanger and I could not believe it ….. I just wanted to scream.

Overall AWESOME book and I cannot wait for the next one. It was a great thrilling, gory , surprising book.

I rate it at a full 5 ★
