Review — Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

HALFWAY to the GRAVE took me my surprise. Although it was recommended by a friend, I honestly didn’t think I’d enjoy it as much as I did to the point I really, really wanted to skip to the end to read what happened. (I haven’t had that urge in a long time and thought I’d broken that bad habit).

Catherine “Cat” is a 22 year old half vampire, half human misfit who has hidden her abilities from the world her entire life. She hunts and kills vampires as revenge for her mom who was raped by a vampire. In a botched attempt at seducing and killing Bones (a very old vampire), she gets kidnapped and ultimately is forced to help him in his job as a vampire bounty hunter.

Cat is a delicious, tough heroine with enough insecurities and vulnerabilities to make me root for her from the beginning. And Bones? Well, he’s hot, gorgeous, and very territorial over Cat. What’s not to like? Bones also isn’t the typical vampire I tend to read about because he’s more open with his feelings toward Cat, which also makes him vulnerable in a way…and that’s a nice change from the alpha male stereotype. In fact, he expresses his love much sooner than Cat.

The ending only confirmed that I must read the next in the series to see what happens to this emerging couple, and what a great couple they appear to be.

Focused. Strong. True.

Review — Archangel’s Legion (Guild Hunter #6) by Nalini Singh

WOW! What a terrific ending! I was flabbergasted by the Legion, totally didn’t see that coming. I think I liked this book as much as the first one, ANGEL’S BLOOD. Usually, I enjoy the first book in a series the most. Since the characters are familiar to me in subsequent books, the unique feel lessons as I continue reading the series. But not so in ARCHANGEL’S LEGION. I love Raphael and Elena. Truly, Raphael is one hot archangel, and Elena? She’s definitely his match. The secondary characters are well developed and I enjoy their interaction and the loyalty they have for one another. The dialogue is crisp, sharp, and funny. The emotions are real and the storyline had a suspense feel that kept me guessing until the end.

ARCHANGEL’S LEGION is a fantastic PNR and I recommend the entire Guild Hunter series.

Focused. Strong. True.

Review — Archangel’s Storm by Nalini Singh

Jason, the spymaster, was the focus of this book in the Guild Hunter series. What a tough childhood Jason endured, a childhood that molded his adult life. Distancing himself from people and the rest of the world, I couldn’t help but feel for him and his self‐imposed aloneness. Enter Mahiya, a beautiful princess who also has endured pain and loneliness, but has fought to remain true to her spirit instead of becoming jaded. I loved their journey together, how they found the courage to trust each other, and as a result, make each other happy. The ending was beautiful.

Raphael’s seven are such an amazing group of broken men. I can’t help but enjoy their stories and hope they all find their happily‐ever‐after.

Strong. Focused. True.

Review — Warsworn by Elizabeth Vaughan

I love the world Ms. Vaughan has created. The scenes with Lara teaching Keir about chess and how it spreads throughout the camp and grows into a massive chess tournament are hysterical! I really got a kick out of those scenes.

Keir still knocks my socks off. He is one sexy and sometimes very stubborn man who loves Lara completely. And Lara is an amazing heroine, amazing not because she’s a warrior or tough (she’s actually pretty weak compared to the other women), but because of her dedication to her craft.

I was saddened that some of the characters didn’t make it, especially since I enjoyed them so much. And I’ve decided that I truly hate Iften! But Lara’s curse on Iften’s manhood is truly one of the best curses I’ve ever heard, and I’m looking forward to when he finally gets what he deserves.

This good is a good continuation to WARPRIZE and the way it ended ensures that I’ll read WARLORD.

Focused. Strong. True.
