Not all diamonds are flawless, so yes, you’ll find some flaws in Midnight Symphony but considering this is A.L. Kessler first book it’s really good and a great start to a series. I devoured it in two days and went to beg her for more.
As a heavy paranormal romance reader I love finding something totally different from the same old PNR’s out there today and Midnight Symphony gave me just that. Loved the characters, world build, magic and lots of different emotions.
With a war wedging between the demon hunters and the demons Cora and Darius are against all odds of beginning able fall in love with each other. This is not your typical lovie dovie PNR, this is what some of us call more hard core PNR. With Darius father after the Cora for his own shellfish benefit and he abuses Cora in many ways. One was is he has her back wiped and Darius is powerless to help her. Cora is very strong and powerful and she is willing to take all risk to bring down the Demon King that killed her mother.
I recommend this to any paranormal romance reader who like something hard core and different.
Spoiler alert below I bought this thinking it was a standalone but when I got to the end of the story I was screaming for more. Cora father arranged a marriage with her to Alaster without her knowing. Alaster is very prominent in the story, so before the end you might find yourself rooting for him to get with Cora. While you’re rooting for him the story ends with Darius wishing for him to find love, therefore causing you scream for his story. Needless to say that’s just what I did went to the author screaming for a story for Alaster. With the world she created it would defiantly be easy to add more stories and she has insured me that she is working on Alaster story. (less)

You get to know Lucius and how he runs his clan. I know some will regard him as the true villain and at one point I also seen him as that, but as you read this book and the next you might change your tune. Kassity is part of his clan, she serves as his killer. I really liked Kassity character and I hope one day she will see her immortal mark, she has been though too much to not get it.
I also like Jax it didn’t take him too long to figure out what was going on. I love a smart hero they get things done LOL
The romance between Kassity and Jax is not full force all the time, so those of you who like one good hot sex scene and slight sexual tension during the story this is totally for you.
There are some issues unresolved but if you go to the next story you’ll find some answers to some of the unresolved issues. (less)

Kessler is digging deep into the Circle world. I took to both main character very well and I love getting to know Marcus clan side more. I can’t wait to see which vampire clan wins out in the end.
Rennee has a secret besides the stone. She has no ideal that the images she see behind people is the real deal. As Rennee is fighting seeing images, keeping the stone and her heart her world is about to explode with all kinds of paranormal.
Some writers can’t seem to a character over a past love, they either drag on and on or they are too short and that leaves you with a lot of questions but Kessler didn't linger with Coran past, she brought him out of the past just right and explained everything so it felt real.
You’ll find a bit more heat between the main characters then the first book.
This book explains some things from previous book and it explains more about the war, who’s fighting and who’s trying to win it.
Series review Dark War Chronicles is my favorite new series.
The whole series is paranormal romance with HEA in each book but the romance is very subdued. So, those of you who just like about one very good sex scene and the romance as not the major focus of a story, then this is for you. I would actually say this series is a cross between PNR and Uf, you really get a good feel of each genre.
Dark War Chronicles is about two vampire’s clans at war for a stone that can bring back the originals. These vampires’ clans are not your fluffy everyday romance vamps. Nope, they own everyone under them meaning they will use force to keep what is theirs and if theirs gets out of line they will correct them by any means they feel.
What I love best about this series is you have the main characters finding their true love and then you have another story of war, violence, and mystery that runs right along with the romance side. It’s like having two story’s in one. What better way to read. You have to ask yourself which side are you on. Lucius or Marcus? I myself tend to think Lucius is not the evil one so I pick Lucius and hope he wins.
I couldn’t stress enough if you love paranormal romance and Urban Fantasy this is a series you must try. (less)

Heck, I love her ménages so much she could writes these stories all freaking day and I would make sure I was planted right in front of her with my hands out ready to gobble up the next one. LOL
Freakin’ Cougar is a bit different than other books by Eve. You still get the same great snarky, humorous storylines but this time around you get a real Cougar lady (meaning older lady with a much younger man) in the mix and the setting is mostly in a prison. Prison? How in the heck can someone have a romance in a prison, you say? Well, it’s just one you have to read to find out how well it worked for these three.
What I liked best about the story is the heroine is over 30. Yep, me being over 40 I get sick and tired of reading characters under 25. This is one of the main reasons I read indie published books because they don't have to follow traditional publishing rules, that characters has to be under 25.
Great characters along with a different storyline. I recommend this story to anyone who reads romance. I know some of you don’t like reading PNR but believe me Eve doesn’t create large PNR worlds that will just blow your mind. I myself call her books more along the lines of contemporary romance with some paranormal added. So, don’t be scared, if you love snarky characters, funny storylines then please give this whole series a try.
