Laurie: Almost Faemous
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite series I love it and the second book all the same Urban Fantasy happy buttons that the first one did. I loved the first book so much the author gave me a copy of the second book (bless his little heart, don't you wish all your fave authors were like that!). After getting a copy from the author I rubbed my hand together with glee, grabbed my tablet and off I went to read, pity those that interrupted me they were met with snarls and profanity...slinks of ...more

After loving the authors first book Blood Heavy by S.L.J. Shortt, I recieved a e-book copy of the second book in the series Blood Heavy: Ascension. I Loved the book just as much as the first and how the clan of characters I loved from the first book were there (Cass, Sophie, Claire etc) but there were new characters that had just as good back stories and personalities.. The relationships and bonds between all of them are very well done, you have Shophinia/Jerry (mother/son) Jerry/Rach (brother/s ...more

I got an ARC of this novel simply because Shortt wanted me to proof read it.

It's been said that true love is one soul inhabiting two bodies. Masses of romance novels are based on the concept of soul mates but there are those rare few where the soul mates aren't lovers but in fact enemies. I'm not talking about Romeo and Juliet; I'm talking about Sherlock and Moriarty, Clarice and Hannibal, Batman and The Joker.

A hero and a villain whose lives quite literally revolve around each other.

That is exa
I thoroughly enjoyed the first novel in this series and thought that Shortt would have a hard time topping it, but I would go as far as to say that this second installment is even better!

We once again meet our favourite characters, Jerry, Goose and co as they are trying to take out all of the evil, human-hunting creatures who are posing a threat, when along comes a demon posing as an Angel. Aria, the Demon, is highly dangerous and is willing to kill anything to get what she wants and that includ

This is the second installment in the Blood Heavy Series. I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. It’s not a fluke, SLJ Shortt is a great writer. He’s very talented with written humor which I imagine cannot be easy to convey. That’s the main reason I like the series; they’re clever and funny. How often can a book make you laugh out loud????

Jerry and Goose are back and packing attitude. You name it, they want to kick its ass. They’ve been hunting…..everythi
Daniel Jericho’s, Jerry, life has been turned upside down. He is thrown into a world of the supernatural and is taking a crash course in how to survive. He is fighting with reformed vampires, to destroy the evil creatures of the world. He’s seen great loss and will do anything to protect his new found family.

A beautiful woman/creature named Aria takes a strong interest in Jerry, but no one is sure what kind of creature Aria might be. He must rely on his friends, uncle and wits to survive this ne

Blood Heavy: Ascension was given to me for free in return for a review. Seeing as I had not read the first book when I received it, I jumped on the chance to buy Blood Heavy on Kindle for 99 cents, and so I will probably end up referring to both.

Daniel Jericho (Jerry) is the usual teenage boy, able to turn into a murderer at the threat of his car (okay maybe not so usual). But his car turns out to be the least of his worries when he is hunted for his blood, and turns into one of the best supern

Please note that my review of this book is subjective to my likes and dislikes.

Blood Heavy: Ascension continues the story from Blood Heavy. Shortt continues the adventure with his over the top paranormals, making it an entertaining read.


The characters you came to love from the first book are still there; the main characters of Jerry and Goose are exaggerated even more in this story (which makes it fun).

Joe still plays a role as well as Claire, Cassandra, and the rest of the vamps from

Blood Heavy: Ascension continues the story of Daniel Jericho"Jerry" who is different than most. He is just a teenager but he has been thrown into the supernatural world because of the blood running through his veins. I have become addicted to the continuing saga of Jerry rying to figure out what makes his blood so special that vampires are willing to kill to get to him. In this book, we finally get to meet the party responsible for taking out the majority of Black Forest in Blood Heavy. Shortt a ...more
Blood Heavy:Ascension is one hell of an adventure! Strap your seat belt and hang on for the ride of your life! It is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end.

Jerry is still coping with the knowledge of his unusual blood and the death of his friends. He, with the help of his Uncle Joe, his best friend Goose and his new found friends ,Sophinia, Cass, Claire and Rachel, starts to hunt the evil supernatural creatures to protect his family and the world at large. After these
Ok, let's get the obvious out of the way: yes there are typos. Yes it is an English author that mistakingly uses some English slang instead of American slang. And Yes, sometimes I think the women's/girls responses aren't quite realistic ( a guy wrote it after all). All that being said, I loved this paranormal action book. I love the character of Daniel Jericho (aka Jerry) and his sarcastic wit. The book is filled with action, and IF there is a dull moment, it lasts for a paragraph at the most. U ...more
Apparently, there are 8 books in this series... :)

Great book, like the first one, and I can't wait to see Aria brings to the table in throughout the series.

“Boy, you are outta line!” Joe yelled.
“I’m outta line?! You’re screwing a vampire!”
“You hypocritical little bastard!”
“Yeah, you’re a hypocripical-hypocri-hyp-hyp-hyp, I HATE THAT WORD!”
