Once again, Jocelynn continues to amaze me with all the plot twists in this series. Dayhunter has everything you could possibly want in a book. Its action packed (the way I like my books) and full of twists and turns and shocking revelations throughout. This is one of those books that keep you on the edge - I stayed up all night reading this one because I had to know who would come out on top and who would be left in the dust. There are so many unholy alliances in this book that you don’t know who’s backstabbing who.
I love the characters in this series. Mira, the vampire who can control fire is somewhat of an outcast within her own race. She’s strong and unlike any other nightwalker and she wants to rid the earth of the naturi who are the greatest threat to the world. In order to accomplish this she has to trust in an unlikely ally, vampire hunter Danaus. Danaus is not what he seems and as Mira comes to find out his background she has to stand strong in this new revelation for he’s the only one that can help her accomplish her goal in defeating the naturi.
Oh I have to mention there are some “To Die For” men in this book and I mean that literally!
Dawnbreaker is the 3rd book in the Dark Days Series and is schedule to be released September 29, 2009. If you like dark and edgy fantasy, this is the series for you....more

I can finally pass The Awakening over to my Mom who keeps harassing me about this book. I had this book on Currently Reading for a while but I didn’t want to start this one until I had no interruptions and I’m glad I did because I was literally on the edge of my seat and could not put it down. The phone would ring and I would go to pick it up and say to the caller “One second,” and forget I had the person on hold. Guess who the caller was? My Mom! She had the nerve to tell me I was slacking on my reading. I told her if she stopped bugging me about the book I would finish it. My Mom is so cool! Enough about that, I ended up finishing this book the same day.
I have to mention a scene from the first book in the series The Summoning. Do you remember the Attic Scene? I almost put the book down, "I was scared sh_tless." I could have sworn I was hearing things because for a minute there I thought I was up in that attic. These things “Ghosts” scare me….too many weird experiences. Moving along now….
Kelley continues to weave an amazing plot. I love her writing style, the characters are believable and as mentioned above Kelley makes you feel like you’re experiencing the lives of the characters. When I finished reading The Summoning last year, I was still trying to figure out the extent of the character’s powers and now that I know, I say “Lets Kick Some Butt.” This installment has more action which is how I like my books and I love the twists and turns along the way. Oh, I almost forgot to mention Ehem (Clears throat) “Chloe’s and Derek’s relationship.” What’s up with that? Now you’ll have to go pick the book up to see what I’m talking about. So, what am I going to do now? I’ll have to keep from climbing the rafters until The Reckoning is released.
I highly recommend you give this series a try. ...more

I had a hard time imagining the dance scenes, but that did not take away from the story.
Overall Raven was a quick and easy read and I wish the other characters and their history was more developed, but I loved Zin and Nic’s relationship. ...more

The Vampire AcademyThis is it! What we’ve all been waiting for! Does Rose fulfill her Blood Promise to Dimitri?
Well…”I’m not telling!” and here’s why:
The Vampire Academy Series is in my top 3 favorite YA Series and I can’t get enough of these books. Richelle Mead is also one of my favorite authors and I love her adult series too. I know there are readers who’ve not had a chance to take a look at this series, which is why I don’t want to include a summary of the book so I’ll have to settle for this instead:
If you have not read the VA Series, “What Are You Waiting On?” OK, let me explain…
Why you MUST read the Vampire Academy Series? With all the paranormal books out today, it seems vampires are the IT factor in YA paranormal books today. So, this series is obviously about vampires and who doesn’t like vampires? Right? But the VA Series is so much more than that. The main character, Rose Hathaway is a dhampir (powerful mix of human & vampire blood) & bad-ass heroine who stands up in the face of danger to protect her friends from the soulless strigoi (immortal & most dangerous vampires). She has mad fighting skills, thanks to the help of fellow sexy dhampir Dimitri Belikov. So, yeah the guys in the VA series are HOT! The characters are extraordinary - I do have my favorites and the setting involves a school, so paranormal aside you can relate to some of the drama that’s involved with the students. This series is fast-past and highly entertaining and has everything one could want in a book/series:
The writing is brilliant and will keep you glued to the edge of your seat while turning the pages in the wee hours of the morning and when you finally get down to that last page, you’ll wish you had the next installment.
I hope this helps for the newcomers but for the readers who’re up to date on this series, Don’t Fret!, Blood Promise lives up to what we’ve been waiting on and then some and you’ll be dying to get your hands on Spirit Bound - May 2010. ...more

I love the whole aspect around psychometry in the Touch Series. It’s unique and spooky, which I guess is why I kept trying to convince myself while reading this book that I was the only one in the house at the time. With Camelia’s strange encounters with premonitions, I couldn’t help but to be psyched while reading this book.
In this installment, Camelia’s trying to grasp the meaning of this ability especially when it seems totally different from what Ben’s ability entailed. Stolarz did a great job at explaining why Camelia kept finding excuses not to tell her parents or authorities about the threats surrounding her. I guess it’s not as easy to explain when one might think she’s crazy. Ben’s also back in town but all’s not well in paradise, there’s a new guy knocking at the door.
I found myself laughing at the humorous dialogue between Camelia’s best friends, Kimmie and Wes. Every time something weird happened with Camelia, these two would put their two cents in whether it’s sound advice or not, but they always managed to get a laugh out of me.
Stolarz once again kept me guessing with the plot. Finally, when I think I've figured out who the perp. is, another wrench is thrown in knocking my guesstimations out the door. All I can say is Poor Ben, can this guy catch a break?
I can’t wait to see what Stolarz has in store for us in Deadly Little Game, the next installment in the Touch Series.

It’s also nice toI enjoyed this installment of the Wicked Lovely Series. I appreciated the new insight on all of the courts and their inner workings. It’s also nice to get the character’s point of view of their feelings and how they react to certain influences and the decisions made because of them.
Aislinn has a decision to make. Who do you choose? The Mortal who is your forever or the Immortal who will live forever? This book portrays Keenan as being selfish from some of the character’s point of view, but I find myself feeling sorry for him as I see his actions from a different perspective. I can’t help but to want him to find happiness. I dunno that’s just my opinion. I’ll leave that up to you to decide.
The plot was totally unexpected as I did not see this plot moving in the direction that it took with Sorcha and Seth. Overall, I think it’s a good development for the story line and brought more excitement to the plot. I can say that a decision by one of the characters was unresolved and the ending has me really excited about the next installment.
What I would love to see in the next installment is more of Niall, I find him very enticing! What can I say I love bad boys! ...more
