Another winner from author Gibson! The Sinnis series just keeps building steam and this book is no exception.

Tara Kay is a fun quirky character and I instantly loved her. The green hair just endeared her to me more. She's had a hard life and been betrayed by a lot of people over the years. Her Guardian was a fabulous surprise (I won't say more to keep from spoiling) but I loved the new angle this book took and the information that came together really made the overall series story arc that much

As I continue to read this series, I fall in love with the characters even more. Each story is amazing in its own right, but I have to say that just as I think that the installment I just finished is my favorite, Gibson releases yet another installment that I seem to love more than the last. Ishtar Rising is definitely my favorite thus far. I really liked the character of Tara Kay from the beginning. She was like the resident bad girl in the first book of the Sinnis series and I really enjoyed t ...more

Ishtar Rising introduces us fully to the character of Tara Kay, her abilities and her Guardian. I warn you, have your chairs upright and your seatbelts fasten before you begin, this book hits the ground running!

Tara Kay is not fully aware of or in control of her abilities, having been shunned by the Daughter's, she's made some undesirable but necessary choices. Once she finds her mate and grows more powerful, Nathalia feels threatened and decides Tara is far to dangerous and must be destroyed. I

I originally read this book in September 2012 and when I went back in my notes to see why I’d given it 4 stars on Goodreads instead of 5 stars, I couldn’t quite remember so took the time to read this novel a second time.

“Ishtar Rising” is well plotted and well written. Tara Kay is on a path of self-destruction and if he doesn’t do something quick, she will be dead. Oren comes at just the right time to save he though a dark enemy is on the loose so he may be too late.

Another great read! Tara Kay's story is amazing! I totally thought she was a bad person when I read the other books. Never judge a book by it's cover! I think Nathalia was brought down a notch in this book. She was letting that power of hers give her the bighead. LOL! And funny how I didn't see it that way until I read this. Spoiler alert: I'm wondering how Maeve will handle things now. That scared me at the end, I must say. Great great job Natalie!

Tara Kay Woods lives in a trailer near a dilapidated family house in Texas. She works as a waitress who probably has put me off eating at any country diners for a bit and 'moon-lights' as a stripper-lap dancer on the county line where all that is shady belongs in the eyes of the locals. The opening scene of the protagonist in a drug induced haze running naked into her beloved garden attempting to escape being friend gang banged is an indicator as to how the book flows.

Natalie has yet to disappoint with her amazingly creative imagination. The storyline was exciting and intense from the very beginning. Her writing is captivating as usual, just continues to expand our imaginations. Tara Kay and her bad ass, don't take shit from no one, attitude was great. Visualizing her green hairr was quite entertaining. Oren, as all the previous leading men in this series are hot, sexy, loving, loyal & wonderful. Natalie did not disappoint me with the wonderfully sexy sex ...more

Another stellar addition to the Sinnis series. Tara Kay has been lonely, no real family and a very small circle of friends. Feeling abandoned by the Daughters, she moves back home where she's very unwanted by the majority of the locals.

I won't add more as I don't like to spoil a story for readers. All I can say is Oren, her Guardian, is wonderful, the return of Billy excited me, and the new characters we meet are a great addition to an already fantastic list of characters. I didn't think the sex

I have always loved reading. In middle and high school, I could be found with my nose in a book between classes while others were flirting and primping. In a small way, I hated to turn 16 because it meant I could drive to school and didn't have the extra hour in the morning to read a few extra chapters. I love paperbacks. Hardbacks, not so much. They are heavy and cumbersome and come with dust jac ...more
