After Dante Bottelli’s slaughter of Vamp-owned Mixbreeds, Lanore and Zulu execute a well-planned attack that hits Dante where it hurts the most—his pockets. But their attack triggers a chain of unfortunate events, and allows Detective Rivera to blackmail Lanore.

Rivera forces Lanore to investigate his case, the Burning Bush Murders. Someone's been tying girls to bushes and

4.5 out of 5- loved it, loved it!

Come read this review at , it's my first review in a long time so come by and say hi.... or if you must.... here it is below...

I’ve been falling out of love with urban fantasy and paranormal books as of late. I’m not exactly sure when and how it happened but it did. My problems (since you asked):

The monsters are not scary. We have vampires, werewolves, demons, shape shifters, witches, and every possible combo imaginable. W
I'm really enjoying this series. I'm glad I only had a couple of weeks to wait to pick this up after reading the first book. Otherwise, I would be a bitter chick :) I hate waiting for books :)

Wright does an excellent job with spinning the story. I had a couple of issues with it - some areas were repetitive for information. But it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book.

Keep 'em coming Mrs. Wright. I'll be cranky waiting for book 3. Just letting you know NOW! :)
I read it. Loved it more than Fire Baptized. I don't plan to write a review anytime soon, so you'll just have to check it out for yourself.

I didn't love every single thing about this book. But I still thought it was very, very good. I really like the series. The world building fascinates me. It's dark and disturbing, but very compelling. The main character is a contradiction, but one that makes sense. She is flawed but powerful; maligned yet idolized; loyal but conflicted. I like her. I want her to be happy. I want her to beat the odds. (I want her to be with Zulu. --But we'll get to that later.)

Basically, the story picks

Firts of all I want to say that I think Kenya Wright is a genius!!! If there were more than five stars to rate this book I would give it quadruple stars!!!! Kenya blessed me with the ARC of "The Burning Bush" and I am ever so grateful as I fell in love with this series from book #1..I have just finished reading the second book and I am shell shocked at the moment!!!

I speak on behalf of the people when I say, "Too Long! Release today please!"
Once again we are thrown into the amazing world of Santeria, where supernatural beings or Sups live out their lives separated from the human population in the caged cities of the Habitat. The story picks up with heroine Lenore in an adrenaline fueled soon to be disaster, immediately pushing you to the edge of your seat. Soon after this however comes the crux of the story, initiated by Rivera, the slimy Habbie cop from Fire Baptized. I found that his proposal to Lenore was a bit obvious a way to ...more

I received an ARC copy of The Burning Bush. I have not been compensated for my review, however, I do undeniably feel intellectually “richer” after reading this book ;)

The book’s description will tell you most of what you need to know about what The Burning Bush is going to be about and I am hesitant to say too much more about what happens in the book because it’s all important and I don’t want to give too much away! So instead, I’m going talk very generally about what makes The Burning Bush a co

I really love this book. This is the perfect sequel for an amazing book 1. It was even better than the first book!

Lanore, was suppose to continue her fight about equality for mixed breed but allowed personal vendettas get in the way. Once again she has Zulu and MeShack by her side, but they are joined in this book by a "seer" and a witch. Tragedies happened when Lanore veered from her fight and a twisted ending let a bigger question in the air. Will Lanore be
4.5stars actually —Aaaarrrgh – why weren’t book 2 & 3 written simultaneously?

Another beautifully rendered cover for this series and a very accurate synopsis that does not need to be rehashed or revised. I’m so glad I decided to continue this series as book two built on the great promise and not so great promise of book one to make this a series to watch. It is also a series to be read in order to get the full experience of this very different and exciting world. My issue from book one was a
Wow, I did not expect to like the book quite so much. I certainly did not expect to almost turn into a desperate fangirl waiting for the next book. Here's what I thought:

What I liked: The book began with a bang. I liked the action and the fact that the author has maintained a fast pace till the very end. This book gives us a much greater insight into the world of Santeria and the work put into creating an intricate world is evident throughout. Not having read much from this genre, I still couldn

You know what I hate, when you're in a good book and it leave you hanging at the end. You know what I love, when that cliffhanger is in a book that's an awesome series like Kenya Wright's Santeria Habitat Series!

Wait until you read the story. It starts out with a bang.

Let me tell you something about it. But before I forget, I should tell you that this is Book Two in the series and may contain some mild spoilers.

Now they’ve really stepped in it. Zulu and Lanore blew up Linderman‘s Blood Factory. It just happens to be owned by Dante, a very powerful vampire that wants them dead.

To complicate matters, the bumbling cop, Rivera, was tracking them with their brands and knows they did it. He uses that knowledg

I was glad to have the opportunity to review The Burning Bush (Habitat #2) by Kenya Wright after enjoying its predecessor a great deal.

When you’re a mixie, sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands to survive. In Lanore and Zulu’s case, that includes taking down a real mover and shaker, vampire businessman Dante Bottelli. After bombing his production plant, everything goes downhill and Lanore gets roped into a bizarre murder case, the Burning Bus

The Burning Bush picks up where Firebaptized left off. angry at Dante for his horrible and malicious behavior toward the Mixies in his care, Lanore and Zulu manage to strike back with great force and precision . But they don't on the ripple effect of the consequences. It seems that compromise will be necessary but Lanore and Zulu no longer know who their enemies are. Things aren't as they seem. Rivera blackmails Lanore into helping him solve another murder mystery.

I truly enjoyed this book. I lo

Even though I rated book 2, The Burning Bush, the same as book 1, book 2 is hella better than book 1. The surge in the quality amazed me, and that’s not a compliment I give lightly or frequently, if ever. Whether it’s better editing or better writing or both, it’s working~! Not to mention it’s another book written by an author-friend that I actually like; that’s two out of, uh, many now.

The heroine no longer has fits of TSTL. The transition between chapters was smooth, unlike in book 1 where it

Halfway through this book, I just knew it was going to be another 5 star story like the first book, Fire Baptized. Then the second half was like watching puppies being tortured.

I'm so sad. I was expecting so much more out of this installment than I got of it. For some reason I found La La's character to be a little annoying throughout the whole book. She's changed a little from the character I remembered in the first installment, and I just found myself disliking her immensely.

I just don't know where she stands anymore. And her relationship with MeShack and Zulu has agitated me beyond relief now. If she likes Zulu so much, why not just stay with him? She constantly re

Over the last year, I've become a pretty big Kenya Wright fan. The Burning Bush was a prime example of why!
At the end of Fire Baptized, I remember wondering what in the world the author still had to write about: the murderer was behind bars, Lanore had finally decided that she was interested in Zulu...things seemed to be pretty much resolved, at least in my opinion.

Enter The Burning Bush, second book to The Habitat Series. Ms. Wright made it perfectly clear, from the very first page, that I had

"The Burning Bush" by Kenya Wright was second installment of this authors 'The Habitat' series. This novel was about 'Lanore' who was the daughter of the demented Demon.

I read the first book, Fire Baptized, before I read the Burning Bush. These two books are absolutely awesome! Engaging from the get go. I loved reading and learning about the different “cities” and half human/half animal creatures. The way the author shapes the characters to be so fluid with their powers is amazing. Every time I would read about a character and their powers, you could really believe that the character was fused with certain elements (fire/water etc…) and it showed in the persona

Kenya Wright you have done it again!!

You made me fall in love, you made me scream at the top of my lungs, and you made me really really really want a WITCH STORY!!

If you do not deliver on my Witchy story I will be pounting. And no one wants to see that.

Kids! You want this book! It picks up where "Fire Baptized" left off and will keep you hooked until the very end. Also, you'll be wanting a witch story ;)

I'm not a polished reviewer, but here goes: I really enjoyed this book. It's an urban fantasy based series, with vampires, witches, shapeshifters, etc. -- which currently is a crowded field, but I thought the author had a lot of success creating a unique mythology. The main characters are well developed and I was very successfully drawn into their story and was captive to the end of the book (which is a cliff hanger type ending). The author has a very natural writing style and has a great sense ...more
