Week 17 Review: Strange Candy

From Goodreads:
The #1 "New York Times" bestselling author's short story collection-including an all-new Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter story-now in paperback. From a woman who marries into a family of volatile wizards to a couple fleeing a gang of love-hungry cupids, from a girl who seeks sanctuary in the form of a graceful goose to the disgruntled superhero Captain Housework, readers will revel in the many twists and turns of fortune in these fantastical fairy tales and lush parables. Even hardened vampire hunter and zombie animator Anita Blake gets blindsided by the disturbing motives of her clients in the new "Those Who Seek Forgiveness" and in "The Girl Who Was Infatuated with Death." 

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this anthology collection of short stories! The title is apt, because they were strange, and little bits of candy! Well, that just sounds weird, but yeah, it's true! There were a few clumps of stories, not necessarily together, but in the same world, and then there were a few one offs.

I think my favourite of these, was either the cupid one, the goose girl, the monsters are real and they're our job, or the only sci fi one that would also be horror, because, man! I really enjoyed the first Anita-centric story (I didn't read the 2nd one, since I read series in order, or at least try, and the 2nd story is about 9 books away) but it it didn't quite capture my attention as the above 4.

A number of the stories were set in the world of Nightseer. Which I haven't read, and knowing that it's unlikely that there'll be a sequel (given that Q&A's with Laurell K. Hamilton says that her writing is too dark for what she had planned for the series) well, I won't be reading it. And that kinda sucks, because the world that was shown in these stories was really fascinating!

My one wish? I wish that there'd been at least one Merry Gentry short. Because that series, I'm devouring, and it would've been nice to have a short story there, exploring the world or side characters, because it's so fascinating. Oh well!

Such a wonderful collection of short stories, and I really enjoyed reading them!

Week 17 Reviews: A Kiss of Shadows, A Caress of Twilight, Seduced by Moonlight



From Goodreads:
My name is Meredith 'Merry' Gentry, but of course it's not my real name. I dare not even whisper my true name after dark for fear that one hushed word will travel over the night winds to the soft ear of my aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness. She wants me dead. I don't even know why...

I fled the high court of Faerie three years ago and have been in hiding ever since. As Merry Gentry, I am a private investigator for the Grey Detective Agency: Supernatural Problems, Magical Solutions. My magical skills, scorned at the courts of Faerie, are valued in the human world. Even by human standards, my magic isn't flashy, which is fine by me. Flashy attracts attention and I can't afford that.

Rumour has it that I am dead. Not quite. I am Princess Meredith NicEssus. To speak that name after dark is to call down a knock upon your door from a hand that can kill you with a touch. I have been careful, but not careful enough. The shadows have found me, and they are going to take me back home, one way or another.

So the running is over. But the fighting has just begun...

Rich, sensual, brimming with dangerous magic, A Kiss of Shadows is a dazzling tour-de-force where folklore, fantasy and erotically charged adventure collide. 

From Goodreads:
"I am Princess Meredith, heir to a throne—if I can stay alive long enough to claim it."

After eluding relentless assassination attempts by Prince Cel, her cousin and rival for the Faerie crown, Meredith Gentry, Los Angeles private eye, has a whole new set of problems. To become queen, she must bear a child before Cel can father one of his own. But havoc lies on the horizon: people are dying in mysterious, frightening ways, and suddenly the very existence of the place known as Faerie is at grave risk. So now, while she enjoys the greatest pleasures of her life attempting to conceive a baby with the warriors of her royal guard, she must fend off an ancient evil that could destroy the very fabric of reality. And that's just her day job. . . 

From Goodreads:
I am Meredith Gentry, P.I. and Princess Merry, heir to the throne of Fairie. Now there are those among me who whisper I am more. They fear me even as they protect me. And who can blame them? I've awakened the dazzling magic that's slumbered in them for thousands of years. But the thing is, I can't figure out why.

My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen's Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe blooded ones, the power surges like never before.

It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they're consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I. . . . 

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading these books! They aren't for everybody, given that sexuality is more free then society really permits. And that about half of each book is sex in one form or another. And yeah, the pages flew by so quickly!

I'm going to start off with complains, because that's easier for me. The first book is like double any of the others so far in the series. And it felt a bit disjointed, almost, going from investigator to princess. So that was a bit weird. And the other thing, was some of the repetitions, like the one of Doyle. Yes, we get it, he was the Queen's Darkness. That phrase that she'd say, I think it was in all of the books, at least once. Which was a bit unnecessary. And I wish that we could've seen the girl that she grew up with more, because I think she'd been an interesting character, but we haven't seen her since that concentration between Merry and her cousin outside the Unseelie barrow.

Anyways, onto the good stuff! Merry was so awesome to read about! She was smart, and resourceful and diplomatic. She had her strengths-a growing strength of magic that she didn't start out with, but she wasn't strong of body, at least compared to other Fae. I found it hard to read about her like of a bit of pain with her loving. Because I'm afraid of pain, so yeah, that was a bit weird.

Merry faces a lot of challenges throughout these books. She's the first and only mortal Sidhe, and the other Sidhe don't like that. And lots of people want to kill her, and try. But then she's allowed her men, and yeah, while I know some of what's to come, I can't wait to read it, sounds like a heck of a ride!

This series is off to a great start, and I can't wait to see where it's going to go next!

Week 17 Review: Bitter Night

From Goodreads:
SOMETIMES YOU CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES. AND SOMETIMES, THEY CHOOSE YOU... 

Once, Max dreamed of a career, a home, a loving family. Now all she wants is freedom...and revenge. A witch named Giselle transformed Max into a warrior with extraordinary strength, speed, and endurance. Bound by spellcraft, Max has no choice but to fight as Giselle's personal magic weapon—a Shadowblade—and she's lethally good at it. But her skills are about to be put to the test as they never have before....

The ancient Guardians of the earth are preparing to unleash widespread destruction on the mortal world, and they want the witches to help them. If the witches refuse, their covens will be destroyed, including Horngate, the place Max has grudgingly come to think of as home. Max thinks she can find a way to help Horngate stand against the Guardians, but doing so will mean forging dangerous alliances—including one with a rival witch's Shadowblade, who is as drawn to Max as she is to him—and standing with the witch she despises. Max will have to choose between the old life she still dreams of and the warrior she has become, and take her place on the side of right—if she survives long enough to figure out which side that is...

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this book! I've been meaning to read it for a while, but I only now got a chance to actually read it. And it was just so fantastic! I enjoyed the world, the characters, the writing, and I can't wait to read more!

Max didn't want, doesn't want this life. She was friends with her roommate, she answered positives to questions-and then she was a slave to her roommate, who inflicted a lot of pain on Max, enough that Max now makes pain a strength. Yeah, I wouldn't want to be in her position!

This world of witches, and the Guardians who want humanity gone-and to have the witches do so, yeah, so fascinating! I know it's going to be the 3rd book or so, maybe the end of the 2nd, before that actually happens, but there's still these first 2 books, where things are fairly normal and hidden, though there are some battles!

That ending was pretty brutal! I want to know what's going to happen next! That Max is going to work with Giselle, to make more Shadowblades and Sunspears, that's a hard decision. But it's better than going on with few numbers in this war. Yeah.

Absolutely fantastic book, and I can't wait to read more!

Week 17 Review: White Hot

From Goodreads:
The Hidden Legacy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot

Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada's "talent." But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice …

My Review:
I absolutely loved reading this book! I was so excited to read it, because the first book was absolutely fantastic. And yeah, I utterly loved it! The pages just didn't stop turning, because I needed to know where the story would go on!

Nevada and Rogan left off on a good-ish note-they solved the case, but no real future between the two of them, no matter the chemistry. But in this book, their relationship deepens, which was marvelous to read about, as they learn more about each other and experience more life-threatening events together!

One thing that I really enjoyed about this book, is how it's different from our world. The obvious is the serum that led to the magical powers, and the houses. But then there are the other things. Like Imperial Russia invaded Poland in the 1940s, their version of WWII.

The first book was when the mysterious group that seemed to bring destruction to their area of Texas. In this book, Rogan's investigation-which ties in with Nevada's, brings to light some key details about said group. Not enough to take them down, but a more focused idea of what this is all about! And I can't wait to see where things will go in Wildfire, if it's going to be the end of the series or not, because honestly, I'd love more time in this world, even if it doesn't start Nevada and Rogan!  

Oh, yeah, this book was absolutely amazing, and I just can't wait for Wildfire! Gah, I need to know how it's going to go!

Week 17 Review: Wicked Abyss

From Goodreads:
This fairy tale doesn't end with a kiss… A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!

The terrifying king of hell...

As a boy, Abyssian "Sian" Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster—just as she's been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.

Meets his match.

Princess Calliope "Lila" Barbot's people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can't remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.

Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?

As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast's cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?

My Review:
Yeah, another Immortals After Dark book! I know we just had Shadow's Seduction, but still, this was a full length book, and it deals with another member of the group against Nix and the other's we've gotten to know in previous books.

I enjoyed getting to know Sian and Lila! We met Sian's brother in Shadow's Claim, and with his death, well, Sian was starting to turn monstrous. Which makes this a bit of a Beauty and the Beast retelling. But that's not really the source of the fairy tale-that was the story Nix was telling of these two, though the beginning was a bit confusing, and I don't know how it fits with the rest of the story!

Sian has a lot of issues with Lila stemming from her first life, which she was an asshole and betrayed him and caused a lot of pain, and caused a lot of his people to be enslaved. But Lila's a different person now. Honestly, who'd like to be held accountable for mistakes from a previous life? No one? I thought so. The current life has enough of those!

These two did fall in love. And while she did keep secrets, she did so to keep herself alive, and she was going to tell them once she felt safe from him. But of course things don't work out that way, and I enjoyed how they figured out their relationship problems!

I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read more, there are so many threads going on, like from MacRieve, that I really want to see continued! Plus all new threads, as well!

Week 17 Review: Grave Ransom

From Goodreads:
In the thrilling fifth book in the USA Today bestselling Alex Craft series, Alex comes face to face with the walking dead.

Grave witch Alex Craft is no stranger to the dead talking. She raises shades, works with ghosts, and is dating Death himself. But the dead walking? That's not supposed to happen. And yet, reanimated corpses are committing crimes across Nekros City.

Alex's investigation leads her deep into a web of sinister magic. When Briar Darque of the Magical Crimes Investigation Bureau gets involved, Alex finds herself with an unexpected ally of sorts. But as the dead continue to rise and wreak havoc on the living, can Alex get to the soul of the matter in time?

My Review:
I loved reading this book! I'm glad that I started this series when I did, because there was a bit of a wait for this book, and if I'd started the series sooner, I would've forgotten a great deal more than I did before beginning this book. So yeah! Because while it does stand by itself, it does reference the past books.

The mystery in this book involves another shade of magic and death. Having ghosts walk in dead bodies that aren't their own...yeah, that's new. And of course there were a few threads that connected to this mystery, and I enjoyed all the elements of the investigation, though the smear/bait thing that Briar did to Alex wasn't cool!

I really enjoyed having Briar back. I think it was mentioned, or maybe it's just my imagination, a spin off series with Briar. I would really like that, she's different than Alex, but she's so interesting and kick ass! I'd love to have some full time books starring Briar!

Oh, that ending! Her and Death's relationship deteriorated throughout this book. They had one or two good moments. But oh, that ending hurt! And yeah, we really need more of this series, because I couldn't stand it if it ended there!

This book was absolutely amazing, and I. Need. More!!!!

Week 17 Review: Missing

From Goodreads:
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong comes a new romantic thriller that will leave fans trembling for more.

The only thing Winter Crane likes about Reeve's End is that soon she'll leave it. Like her best friend did. Like her sister did. Like most of the teens born in town have done. There's nothing for them there but abandoned mines and empty futures. They're better off taking a chance elsewhere.

The only thing Winter will miss is the woods. Her only refuge. At least it was. Until the day she found Lennon left for dead, bleeding in a tree.

But now Lennon is gone too. And he has Winter questioning what she once thought was true. What if nobody left at all? What if they're all missing?

My Review:
I loved reading this book! It wasn't what I expected, and it was absolutely amazing! I mean, all of Kelley Armstrong's books are amazing, but if I'd read it without knowing who the author was, well, I still would've loved it!

Winter was a fascinating character! She's had it rough, losing her mom to cancer, and her dad stumbled from one job to another, downhill, until they were in Reeve's End, and he hurts her, so she most lives and survives in the forest. She was tough, and she was smart, and she was awesome!

When I imagined what I thought would happen in this book, I thought that the conspiracy was much larger than it turned out to be. Like, most of the world or something was in on it, or that Reeve's End and it's people and former people were experiments or something. Loved how it turned out to be!

At first, I kinda thought that the romance might be between WInter and Lennon. But after the first few chapters, he's, well, missing. And then there was big brother Jude, and yeah, they had a conflicting, amazing relationship! Loved reading about them!

This book was so fantastic, another amazing YA contemporary mystery, and I can't wait for more Kelley Armstrong books!

Week 17 Review: Night Myst

From Goodreads:
Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the Dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they imagined. Now Myst, the Vampiric Fae Queen of the Indigo Court, has enough power to begin a long prophesied supernatural war. And Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, may be the only one who can stop her-and save her beloved Fae prince from the Queen's enslavement.

Cicely Waters, a witch who can control the wind, has returned home to New Forest, Washington, after learning that her family is in danger. The Indigo Court holds the city in fear. People are vanishing, and strange deaths plague the town. And when she is swept into an unexpected and passionate reunion with Grieve, the Fae prince who taught her how to harness the wind, Cicely finds herself with a fierce and territorial lover.

But Greive has been enslaved in Myst's court, and now, caught betwen two evils, the lovers must survive the machinations of the Vampiric Fae queen, even as Cicely untangles the hidden secrets to her own heritage. 

My Review:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The world was absolutely amazing-and combining vampires and Fae? Yeah, that's totally interesting, and the writing was incredible, and I just loved reading about these characters! So great!

Cicely was interesting to read. She has power, but she hasn't really had time or the training to really explore it. She's lived her life on the move, mostly because of her mom, and only now is ready to come home. And yet, home isn't very welcoming!

I enjoyed her relationships with the people in her life, her cousin, Greive, and the others. There's also the investigation into the Indigo Court, and who they've taken. Which involved some pretty tense situations!

This is only the first book in the series, the Indigo Court is still a pretty big threat. And yeah, it wasn't a perfectly happy ending, but it didn't all go wrong! I just want to know where things are going to go from there!

Absolutely loved this book, and I can't wait to read more of this amazing series!

Week 17 Review: The Perfect Stranger

From Goodreads:
In the masterful follow-up to the runaway hit All the Missing Girls, a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.

Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend's life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah's credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?

My Review:
Loved reading this book! I haven't read All the Missing Girls yet, but now, I'm really itching to, because the mystery in this book was absolutely amazing! Side note, is that the ARC that I received, said a publication date of May, which is why I read it after it'd already been published. Opps!

I really enjoyed the way that Leah's story was told. We knew something had happened in Leah's past, and slowly, ever so madendly slowly, we were given details about what had happened. And that gave us 3 mysteries in this book-Leah's past, Emmy's disappearance, and the violent crimes that have happened in town. And two of the three are connected!

A bit of the writing was hard to read. It just felt less like a fiction novel, and more of a literary one, and I really despise literary books, because they're all fancy and full of themselves. But it was only a little bit in this book, it still was amazing to read!

I do wish that we could've gotten to know Kyle a bit better. She pulled him into this case, and then their relationship happened and things were complicated. And yeah, I just feel like we didn't get to know him very well, and wishing that we had!

Loved the ending, and how things came together, because yeah, this was an absolutely amazing book!

Week 17 Review: Immortally Yours

From Goodreads:
Irresistible chemistry and thrilling suspense combine in this electrifying new installment in New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series…

One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That's how long it's been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen "Scotty" MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth's a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn't need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.

Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he's long suspected: She's his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he'll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who's terrifyingly close. 

My Review:
Yeah, another amazing book in this series! I've only known about this series for about a year now, but it's still going strong! And yeah that there's plenty more stories left if we readers keep up demand so they keep getting published!

This is lighter than the previous two or three books have been, given that it's completely unrelated to the situation down in South America. Well, besides the fact that because of that situation, means that there's a lack of rogue hunters, and a ton of miscreants letting loose because of it. And this paragraph used to be one long run-on sentence before I realized and changed it. Whoops!

Scotty made a few mistakes. Like, he thought that his ward was his life mate and it took several months before he realized that wasn't the case. Which doesn't help his case with Beth when she finds out. Because of course, they're right for each other, there's just a few bumps in the road!

There were a lot of near death experiences in this book! And it just adds that extra element of hilarity, because nobody's permanently hurt, no matter how hard the bad guy tries. This book also had another extra element-we learned more about the Russian council. Which I think would be very interesting to learn more about, since before Immortal Unchained, we only really knew about the North American council, and the European one. So yeah, more!

Absolutely loved this book, it was really amazing, and I can't wait for more!
