Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: This is not going to be an easy review as the story is two parts with separate characters for each. To say it was an easy flowing read would be a lie. While I enjoyed reading about Frank and Radu I felt no connection to them. Nor was their story complete before we are dropped into another half of the book. 

I have never been so totally thrown off a book before. I’m honestly dreading reading the next in the series.

I honestly felt confused when I finished and had trouble separating details of the stories in the book. As a result I have a headache. I am sincerely hoping that things go better in the second book and we get some clarity as to where things are headed. 

If not I may have to give the series to someone else to review. It was an o.k. read.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A man on a mission, Jacob sets out to Italy to discover what happened to his mother and Caleb. Unbeknownst to him an ancient evil is about to invade Ben’s lover Sam and cut down all in its path in brutal fashion. While I love horror stories this one was confusing at times. 

There some confusion on my part at times to where exactly the location was referring to as it changed suddenly with no warning. As with all horror books there is a lot of death in brutal fashions throughout. 

There were also a lot of POV’s throughout the story. Some I felt were unnecessary to have. Sam was super scary at times in his possession but he also confused me before he was possessed. Ben was sweet and seemed to care for Sam a lot. 

I really liked the plot of this story but the delivery was a little wrong to me so it made it impossible for me to enjoy it as much as I should have. It was an ok read.

Angels of Istanbul

(Arising 02)
by

Alex Beecroft

Wallachian nobleman Radu is recently arrived in Bucharest with his vampire parents. Welcomed as an eligible bachelor, he’s introduced to the enchantress Ecaterina, whose salon is Bucharest’s centre of magical expertise. 

But when Ecaterina’s brother dies of a mysterious new plague, it’s clear to Radu that his parents have not been idle. Soon Bucharest is in the grip of an undead epidemic—a less than ideal time for Ottoman Sultan Mahmud, Wallachia’s overlord, to call Bucharest’s nobility to assemble their armies in Istanbul for a holy war against Britain.

The Wallachians have long resented their Ottoman overlords, so Radu seizes the chance to eliminate them while also ridding Bucharest of the undead: he leads an army of vampires to Istanbul and sets them to feed on the Turks.

As Radu’s demons gut the city of Istanbul, their plans become horribly clear. This is only the start. With the Ottoman armies under their control, the undead are poised to suck the life out of the whole world. Radu, his lover Frank, and Ecaterina are appalled at what they’ve unleashed. But they may be too late to stop it.

Blurb: Private detective Duncan Andrews’s best friend Gina is a witch. His dog is a zombie. And his dead boyfriend, Robbie, is a ghost. So it’s hardly any wonder that he uses his connection to the supernatural to help him solve cases. In Pale as a Ghost, Duncan’s on the trail of a serial killer who may not be human, while also trying to move on in his dating life. In Animal Instinct, someone is using the skull of a powerful wizard—Gina’s father—to control animals and attack young Ashton Marsh. In The Scarlet Tide, Duncan’s latest case leads him to Chicago and a band whose members are all vampires. And in Dead End, Robbie’s cousin Jason has moved into a house that’s haunted by a serial killer, and Gina’s on the run from witch-hunters. Through it all, Duncan must solve the case and balance a complicated personal life.

Pale as a Ghost stars private detective Duncan Andrews and his faithful zombie dog, Daisy, his best friend Gina, who is a witch and his boyfriend’s ghost, Robbie, who was killed ten years prior. I liked the story. It flowed smoothly with some humor thrown in. Duncan is able to see, hear and communicate with ghosts hence his ability to see his dead boyfriend. Makes for dating non-existent. He is lonely and wants companionship when he meets Nick. 

The cases he takes on are both complex and simple. Find a missing woman and determine who is killing women. The second case takes on a disturbing vibe as he discovers the person is not actually human. This person is copying the jack the ripper murders once every one hundred years. There is plenty of action, suspense and drama to be had throughout this story. I liked the flow of the book. Very well detailed with a hint of more to come.

Duncan is on the hunt for a stolen skull belonging to a powerful warlock. This skull gifts the human unimaginable powers while at the same time changing them. Several deaths and many attacks later Duncan’s life is at stake to find the culprit. 

A fantastic story with plenty of action, mystery and suspense. I loved the way Duncan left no stone unturned in his quest to find the skull. A television psychic causes Robbie and Duncan problems as well by making Robbie think it’s better for him to move on. I loved it.

In this exciting addition to the series Duncan is on the case of finding a boyfriend who is acting strange only to discover he’s a vampire. Doing away with a band of vampires is not easy. Duncan gets a shock as the leader Dominic bites him. Amid all this is Nick’s request to Gina to allow him to see ghosts and Robbie’s plans to leave on New Year’s. 

I liked this story. Though I do have to say it is getting irritating about the way Robbie and Duncan keep bringing up and pondering Robbie leaving. Either leave or stay already. Make up your minds and stick with the decision.

Duncan Andrews is on the case of an evil ghost hell-bent on destroying lives. Moore was a doctor but also a serial killer. He took the lives of seven young men then his own life. In death he is the embodiment of pure evil. With the help of his team Duncan will attempt to get rid of the ghosts haunting Jason’s, Robbie’s cousin, house. 

In this book a lot is going on. A witch hunting group has set sights on Gina for elimination, an incubi is on the loose, Nick has settled into his ghost helping, Duncan and Robbie come to terms with their relationship. I liked all the new twists and turns as they kept the story interesting and intriguing.

Overall:

All in all, this bundle was absolutely awesome. Each book gives the reader an insight into Duncan and Robbie’s lives. The cases bring about a closeness with each other as they work together to solve each one. The paranormal characters were different and fresh for each story and drew the reader in. Demons, incubi, ghosts, witches, hunters, vampires and a zombie dog made for fantastic well written reads. I truly loved them and highly recommend each one.

When Levi is imprisoned, Byron begins to question everything he’s ever believed. How can magic be evil when Levi used it to save dozens of lives? So Byron hatches a plan to save Levi that will cost him his job and probably his life. If he doesn’t pull it off, Levi will be put to death.

Byron discovers that he isn’t the only one questioning America’s stance on magic. And he learns that Levi is stubborn, angry, and utterly enchanting. Time is running out, though. Byron must convince Levi to trust him, to trust his own magic, and to fight against the hatred that’s forced him to hide his true nature his entire life. The more Levi opens up, the harder Byron falls. And the more they have to lose.

Spell Fall

(The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge 04)
by

Jacob Z. Flores

Love and trust made them soul mates, but destiny might have other plans.

Ever since Drake Carpenter fell in love with warlock Mason Blackmoor, his life has been one supernatural battle after another, but Drake doesn’t mind… much. To be with Mason and experience the magical connection they share, Drake would face entire hordes of vampyren, shifters, or fae—and he has. Luckily Drake is immune to magic, though no one can explain his natural ability to negate almost any enchantment. With Drake’s own family gone, Mason is all he has. So why is Drake experiencing disturbing dreams about Mason that terrify him?

A new threat looms on the horizon, and a revelation about Drake’s identity and the true origin of his bond with Mason shatters everything Drake believes. If Drake, Mason, and all of magic are to survive the coming Spell Fall, the most destructive curse in sorcery, Drake must deal with the truth and fight his way back to Mason—because their enemies are gaining strength, and they intend to reach the boy Drake loves first.

Blurb: After years of abuse in his old shifter pack, Dante found a new life with Alpha Victor. He would do anything for Victor. Anything but stay away from Jesse, the half-blood stray. But when Victor names Dante his heir, he has no choice but to accept the duties given to him even if it means relinquishing the possibility of love. He owes his life and sanity to Victor, and that’s a debt Dante can never fully repay.

But Dante should have known the good life couldn’t last. His former alpha, Caster, is not a male who lets anything of value slip through his grasp. When rumors fly of Caster’s return, Dante knows the man will stop at nothing to possess him and his talent once again. When Jesse is kidnapped and Victor falls victim to an untimely death, his worst fears are realized. His old alpha has finally returned to reclaim him. Dante must use his fears and nightmares to save Jesse and his pack, even if it means sacrificing himself.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Dante has been abused by Caster for most of his youth and made into a killer. He has been through things most would have died from. Alpha Victor steals him away and shows him there are other ways to live. 

Dante is a man who struggles with nightmares from his past but guidance from Victor turns into an exceptional man. His talent is rare as he take away an alpha’s strength and give it to someone else. His twin August was left behind when he fled. In my opinion August is lost to him now. 

Jesse is a stray. Strays are seen as abominations as they sometimes go mad. Jesse is anything but mad. He is also doing something extremely dangerous. If found out he could be killed. Jesse loves Dante with all his heart. When things come to pass he knows he must warn Dante.

Caster is a cruel, evil, despicable man. I truly hated him and the things he did. He ruled by fear and pain. The things he and his pack did to others were heart-breaking. This man causes chaos wherever he goes. August works with him as they have secret plans of their own to accomplish by any means necessary. They will take out anyone in their way.

What does Caster want? Dante back of course. A wonderful story from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was horrified by the lengths these men went to to get what they wanted. By the end of the book I wanted the story to continue. 

There is a romance but yet not the focus of the story which I liked. Dante has to make sure Caster does not hurt anyone else when the man comes for him. There is action, drama, horrifying scenes and a wide range of characters that keep the reader invested in the story. 

This is a new author for me and I will definitely be reading more from them. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I had made the mistake of reading one of the smaller stories that comes with these types of series and was a bit disappointed in the fact that it really didn’t have much to tell at all. However it was just intriguing enough to catch my attention and made me want to check the rest of this series out. .

Now most paranormal stories you can pretty well guess what they will be like. There are very few new types out there, so when I read this one I was pretty surprised. Got to say though, I wished she had not given it a death sentence when they got infected. It made it a bit creepy. The virus creates big cat shifters that usually don’t last long. They go through this viral cycle that is about once a month type of thing. There are very few that survive, and a tiger strain hasn’t survived until now. 

Roan is a viral child. He was born infected and changed into a lion. His kind have never been known to survive childhood, but he has managed it. He thinks he is nothing more than a freak though and doesn’t really care what people think of him. He is a bit snarky and has a great attitude in some ways. He has this amazing attitude that has him trying to save those around him. He is also a big geek in a way.

Roan finds a tiger shifter close to death and knows he needs to get some weight on him, and then get him to the hospital that deals with cat shifters. Paris is not expected to make it through the night, but he has this strength behind him that proves them all wrong. However the chances of him actually living long is not good. But he calls to Roan like no one else does. He was infected not too long ago and had not wanted to survive until he met Roan. 

Roan is a private investigator who gets paid by either cash or even a car. There are a few cases to solve in the story which makes it even better, but very long in length. Now I was good with most of it and it kept my attention but that attention waivered somewhat. What was surprising was that I was never lost with this book except for the beginning. I am not sure what to really think about it though.

The story is unique and fascinating but it also comes off a bit bizarre as well. So I have mixed feelings with it and I am not sure if book two will help me or not, guess we will have to see.

Drawing Dead

by

S. Zanne

Devin endured Hell for a long, long time and has come out literally a changed man. Now a demon, he hunts for the one thing that can make him remember something of what it was to be human—however unfortunate that might be for his prey.

He stumbles upon James Goodman, who tugs at the nearly extinguished memories. The pair enter into a relationship that evolves into something more as Devin grooms James for his pleasure.

Though Devin is a demon and James merely human, who holds the power in their relationship is in question, and, in the end, who holds the winning hand may surprise them both.

Ace in the Hole

by

S. Zanne

Months later, Devin is imprisoned and James remains reluctant to face him. Torn and conflicted, he’s still reeling from the experience of living at the side and in the bed of the man his family has spent several lifetimes hunting.

James tries to find solace in the bosom of his family, but it leaves him dissatisfied and wanting, unable to fulfill the newly born cravings even he’s not sure he understands. Finally forced to serve his stint as Devin’s jailer, James returns to the place of Devin’s imprisonment, only to find his confusion grow with every day he spends with Devin.

And Devin may not be entirely out of cards.

Unbeknownst to the Goodman family, Devin’s influence extends far beyond the ten- by twelve-foot room in which he’s confined.

James comes to the realization that perhaps his great-grandfather’s plan hadn’t been for the family to save Devin after all, but instead to repay a debt owed—a soul for a soul.
