But thSaba thought it was simple - rescue brother Lugh, and go home. But a lot has changed since Saba left home. For one thing, Lugh is not the same. But then neither is she. Labelled the Angel of Death Saba is hardened and also damaged. And she has a promise to Jack to keep.
The journey is a hard one for all involved, not just Saba. She has to contend with Lugh’s reluctance to trust Jack and the issues he refuses to discuss with her. Their group gets a few new members who bring with them devastating news that Saba cannot believe.
Not to mention the price on Saba’s head.
Rebel Heart blew me away. I absolutely loved Blood Red Road and its sequel was nothing short of amazing. Despite being a great deal shorter than the first book, it definitely packed a punch. This time we also get an insight into Jack’s head with the first portion of the book told from his perspective.
There isn’t a great deal I can say about this book without giving away spoilers. What I can say is this - the series is still one of the uniquest I have ever come across, and definitely the dystopian you should be reading. It plucks at the heartstrings and stabs you in the back. ...more

But leading the Nephil into battle means trying to destroy Patch. So not happening.
Nora and Patch try to work from the inside to gather information from both sides to find a way to avoid war. But outside forces work against the lovers. Nora is tempted by a new power. An acquaintance from Patch’s past reappears in his life. Marcie moves into the farmhouse.
Finale was everything I hoped it would be and more. I have been a fan of the Hush, hush series since the beginning and Finale was the perfect, well, finale. It stood firm in it’s own rights as a book with more ups and downs than a ride at Delphic, but managed to effectively tie up the series in a way that satisfied the reader without spelling out every little thing.
I cried reading this book. Sat on the edge of my seat. Stayed up late for one more chapter. Thought about it when I should have been working. I really couldn’t ask for more from a book. When I got to the end all I wanted to was to grab book one and start all over again. Finishing a series always feels a little bit like saying goodbye to an old friend. But there’s always re-reads to keep in touch. ...more
Ryan Christensen is a household name. He gets chased down the streets, is the subject of every woman’s fantasy, and just longs to be left alone. TarynRyan Christensen is a household name. He gets chased down the streets, is the subject of every woman’s fantasy, and just longs to be left alone. Taryn Mitchell owns a local pub and feigns her contentment. Things are steady and unpredictable, until a movie shooting in Taryn’s town brings Ryan crashing into her life.
Taryn is one of the few locals who doesn’t obsess over the every move of the film and its stars, and when she aides Ryan after he is hunted down like an animal and physically injured, she is the breath of fresh air he has been craving. But Taryn is nursing a heartache, and doesn’t want to get burned again.
Within Taryn, Ryan sees what he has always wanted - a good, down to earth beautiful woman, a place he could settle down and call home and someone to share his life with. And lowly but surely, Taryn lowers her defences and lets Ryan in – to her life, and her heart.
But just because there is obvious chemistry and affection involved, doesn’t mean the road will be easy for the new lovers. Jealousy, Ryan’s lifestyle and Taryn’s insecurity threatens to rip the couple apart.
Love Unscripted is one of those books I really can’t make my mind up about. In a lot of ways, it was a great read. There was good plot turns, interesting characters and a believable romance. But on the other hand, it was vastly over written and the book as a whole could have been a lot shorter. There was a great deal of repetition involved, with Taryn stressing over the same old things, Ryan pacifying her, Taryn getting wound up again. There was no clear resolve for the end of the book, which irked me.
But on the whole, Love Unscripted will appeal to a broad audience. This is the perfect book for when the rain is lashing down outside and you want to curl up on the sofa and disappear for a few hours. ...more
