Summary:

Brenik has always been envious of his twin sister, Bray. Growing up as fairy-like creatures, known as bats, everything came easier to Bray. While Brenik spent his time in her shadows, never feeling he was enough. After escaping their world of Laith, and living on Earth for ten years, Brenik attempts to strike a deal with the Stone of Desire to become human. Though true humanity is not an option, he will accept the curse that will alter him to get as close as he can.

Living in a tree trunk for the past year hasn’t been easy for Bray, more so after her brother disappears again. When a human boy and his brother, Wes, find her, a new friendship is struck. Through Wes, Bray learns there can be more to life than waiting within a tree. But worrying over where Brenik has vanished to always remains in the back of her mind.

When Bray reunites with Brenik, she realizes she must help him break the curse after she discovers the need for blood is beginning to overpower him. The curse not only damages those who get close to Brenik, but it could also destroy whatever is blooming between Bray and Wes.

Review: When Life Gives You Demons

Title: When Life Gives You Demons

Author: Jennifer Honeybourne

Date of Publication: July 17th, 2018

Goodreads Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Shelby Black has spent the past year training to be an exorcist. Her great-uncle Roy—a Catholic priest and Shelby’s guardian—believes she has a gift for expelling demons, and he’s put her through exorcist boot camp hell, but he still doesn’t trust her to do an exorcism on her own.

High school is hard enough without having to explain that you fight demons for a living, so Shelby keeps her extracurricular activity quiet, especially from Spencer, her cute math tutor. Secrets run in Shelby’s family, though: her mother has been missing ever since an exorcism went horribly wrong, and Uncle Roy is tight-lipped about it. But Shelby’s hell-bent on finding her mom, no matter what—even if what it ends up costing her her soul AND a date with Spencer.

My Review:

Just based on the cover alone I knew this would be a fun book! It was like Buffy except with exorcisms.

There were some funny and great moments, especially with the possessed people! I also really liked Shelby and Spencer. Sometimes I wanted to shake the both of them for not talking to each other about things. Also, I wish there would have been more development and conversations between the two. But that’s okay!

Even though the setting is real life, it still had a unique feel to it which I sucked right in. If you need a break and want to read something fun, check this out!

Review: First to Fall

Title: First to Fall

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: March 21st, 2018

unnamed

Goodreads Summary:

When the games become real, all bets are off in love and war… 

Dominic

I’d been staring at Luz for who knows how long. Hell, years maybe. But something in her called to me as surely as the full moon. Unfortunately, she only has eyes for Lucas. So call me a sucker for punishment, but I’m going to help her. if she wants to draw the alpha’s attention, what better way than dating his second in command? Even if it is fake.

Lucrezia

Something about Lucas changed, and lately it’s all I can do to stop panting after him. Then Dominic comes with this crazy idea: pretend to be his girlfriend, to make Lucas realize he’s got the hots for me. And the plan almost works… Until I start falling for the wrong guy. Oh and somewhere in there, find out I live in a town ruled by werewolves. Why can’t life ever be simple?

unnamed (1)

My Review:

I normally don’t read a lot of the werewolf type books because when I want a werewolf, I want a real werewolf, blood and guts! However, I really liked this paranormal romance! I loved the pack of wolves!

It’s told in dual POV’s between Dom and Lucrezia, and I loved them both! The one thing I have noticed with Alexa’s writing is that she knows how to write swoon really well, especially with it not being overly ridiculous! And I loved these two characters together!

Don’t worry though, you also get some suspense, some original folklore (at least I think it’s original because I’ve never heard of it), but if not, then it hasn’t been overused before. Also for those of you who love stand alone books, you can read this one by itself because the next one is a different boy from the pack! And I can’t wait to read it!

Review: Hidden Hero

Title: Hidden Hero

Author: Amy Patrick

Date of Publication: November 26th, 2017

36408184

Goodreads Summary:

A hero can come from the unlikeliest of places…

After a year-long separation and a search across continents, Macy and Nic have found each other again. Now they must find her family—the birth mother who abandoned her at the hospital and fled back to her people’s secret sanctuary—if they are to beat the clock and save the human race from the onslaught of the coming Plague.
Alessia didn’t intend to activate the deadly virus, but after determining that Nic betrayed her, she’s almost glad she did. The only problem? She won’t be around to enjoy the aftermath—she’s being held captive on a remote, windswept island by a mysterious guy who’s completely immune to her Sway and won’t let her get close enough to use her deadly glamour on him.
Give in to the Glamour once more as the end of the human world looms, an ancient secret is unearthed, and a hidden hero emerges.

My Review:

This has been such a fun series! This book was just as good as the rest. This time around we get a couple of other POV’s which are Alessia and Wes, along with Nic and Macy who were the main characters in the other two books. I hate to say it, but I loved Alessia and Wes more than Nic and Macy! But don’t worry Nic and Macy are still awesome!

Amy Patrick is great at writing swoon, and there was some excellent swoon! The Elf thing is obviously cool, but add in some nymphs and witches, and it creates a whole awesome new ballgame!

There were some pretty stressful parts in this book that kept me on my toes, but it was all worth it in the end. The ending was absolutely perfect!

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows

Title: Black Bird of the Gallows

Author: Meg Kassel

Date of Publication: September 5th, 2017

image1

Goodreads Summary:

A simple but forgotten truth: Where harbingers of death appear, the morgues will soon be full.

Angie Dovage can tell there’s more to Reece Fernandez than just the tall, brooding athlete who has her classmates swooning, but she can’t imagine his presence signals a tragedy that will devastate her small town. When something supernatural tries to attack her, Angie is thrown into a battle between good and evil she never saw coming. Right in the center of it is Reece—and he’s not human.

What’s more, she knows something most don’t. That the secrets her town holds could kill them all. But that’s only half as dangerous as falling in love with a harbinger of death.

My Review:

So, this book has a lot of good reviews that I have seen. But, it just didn’t grab hold of me as much as I wished. I will state first and foremost that I loved the whole crow aspect. Very cool!

Going into the book, I did not know there was going to be a bee aspect. This is where it got odd and strange for me. Maybe because it was bees, and I just don’t see bees as being a part of a villain. I just couldn’t get past that.

I also did not connect to the characters. I liked the connection between Reece and Angie, but I needed more before the undying love for each other came into play. Again, I usually don’t mind insta love stuff, it’s the love triangle stuff that bothers me. Thank goodness there wasn’t one of those here.

Other than that, the rest was very interesting, especially the whole harbinger background. I think my favorite part, which was a small part, was when the character Hank came into the picture. That was a very cool detailed visualization. I felt the writing was also well done throughout. I feel like most people who are a fan of paranormal romance will like this book, but there have only been a few that I have really liked, which are generally Jennifer Armentrout’s books.
