It’s no secret that Julie Kagawa is one of my absolutely favorite authors; The Iron Fey series is one of my favorites and probably will for life. TaloIt’s no secret that Julie Kagawa is one of my absolutely favorite authors; The Iron Fey series is one of my favorites and probably will for life. Talon by Julie Kagawa is the first book in a new trilogy. This is a book about a set of twins, well, clutch mates really, who are dragons. Yep, fire-breathing, scaly beasts but luckily they are able to assume attractive human shapes. Ember and her brother, Dante have spent their entire life in a desert compound being raised by a group of dragons called Talon. Talon exists to ensure that the dragon line is not wiped out by the Order of St. George, which has been taking out dragons since forever. They are natural enemies and hate one another with undying passion. The story begins with Ember and Dante being placed with human hosts in a marvelous beach house in sunny California so they can learn to assimilate and act like humans. They have one whole summer of freedom, learning to walk the walk and talk the talk, and then it’s back to their Talon lives and duty. Garret is a member of the Order of St. George, his entire family was murdered by dragons, leaving him alone and owing his life to the Order. Garret is the perfect soldier, he has one mission in life and that is to destroy the things that destroyed his family.
Talon is told in three different perspectives, Embers, Garret’s, and later in the book, by Riley/Cobalt, a rogue dragon, who is intent on luring dragons away from Talon. Ember is spunky, gregarious and wants to experience all that life has to offer. Garret, is quiet, shy, and has trouble letting go. Riley/Cobalt, on the other hand, embodies all that is bad boy biker – with a tender side, of course. Unfortunately, there is a bit of a triangle and Lord knows, I hate THE TRIANGLE! So, we’ll have to see how it all pans out!
There was a bit of a problem with the plot line for me, Ember and Dante spent their entire lives in a compound in the desert. They spent absolutely no time with any other teens, etc … just grown dragons yet they managed to fit in with the popular kids within their first hour in California. There wasn’t any awkwardness or missteps, they just blended in seamlessly. That just doesn’t happen that quickly, I know, I live in a resort town. One girl, Lexi, even calls Ember her best friend after only a month. Call me a skeptic but it just seemed like maybe it should have taken a bit more time and there should have been a few fax pas.
Other than those things stated above, I enjoyed Talon, it has plenty of great action, fighting scenes and suspense. Enough so, that I can overlook THE TRIANGLE and the seamless clique fit in. I give this a 3.5 but round up to a 4. I’ll definitely read the next in the series. ...more
In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken is the third and final installment of The Darkest Minds series. This is one of my favorite serieTHE FAERYS VIEW
In The Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken is the third and final installment of The Darkest Minds series. This is one of my favorite series, a futuristic dystopian with a strong female lead and, of course, the most brilliant group of secondary characters a reader could ask for. This is a spoiler free review at the request of the author and because to do anything less would completely ruin this amazing final book for the reader.
Throughout the last few years I’ve become strongly invested in this series, for a number of reasons. The first being it’s distinctive story line. I love the idea of this amazing group of kids fighting the odds, each with their own distinctive psionic gifts, escaping the system, fighting the cruelty and oppressiveness that they’ve all endured and coming together as one unit to protect each other with one common goal: Stop President Gray. Of course, under that one common goal fall many others but let’s face it, he is the ultimate evil and what he’s done in the camps is hideous and deplorable.
Secondly, I love the characters in this series, seriously, they are remarkable! Ruby, the main character, is such a strong compelling girl, yes, she has her flaws, but after following her life throughout the series, how could she not be? Ruby hasn’t let those that hurt her, destroy her, instead, she’s let the pain and anger she’s endured move her forward, towards being a better person – a stronger person. Ruby is brave, loyal, smart but most of all, she can still love, despite all that has been done too her. She loves her friends to the point that she would put her own life on the line than to risk losing one more person that she loves. In the last book, Never Fade, Ruby lost someone who was so dear to her, someone she swore to protect and felt like she failed. Ruby hasn’t recovered from this and I saw how much this affected her actions in this book.
Without revealing any spoilers, I feel I can say that Ruby and Liam’s romance is strong but not without its challenges, a beloved character is found, Chubs and Vida are still arguing like cats and dogs and Cole remains a bit of an ass, albeit a somewhat loveable ass. Clancy Gray is still in the same position he was when last you saw him in Never Fade. There are intense, heart-racing moments that had me at the edge of my seat and there are some extraordinarily poignant moments that had me reaching for tissues. There are triumphs, there are losses, and there are head-banging moments but most of all, there is justice. I shed some very happy tears in this last book and I shed some very sad tears in this book. I will also say that I felt so very, very satisfied and gratified at the ending and honestly, that is what it’s all about for me at the end of a series.
I so highly recommend this series to all who love a good dystopian, fantastic characters, and a beautifully written story about love, friendship, and fighting for everything that’s truly important in life! ...more
Wow, as always, Maggie Stiefvater has left me speechless. Blue Lily, Lily Blue was all I had hoped for, and then some. As with all of her novels, I reWow, as always, Maggie Stiefvater has left me speechless. Blue Lily, Lily Blue was all I had hoped for, and then some. As with all of her novels, I read the last page with a sincere mix of pleasure and regret. I always hate when I finish one of her books because it’s over and I’ll have to wait at least a year to read more of her incredible work. Then, of course, there’s the pleasure of reading what Maggie pens! Ah, life’s dilemmas!
Blue Lily, Lily Blue (BLLB) starts off where The Dream Thieves left off, I would strongly suggest reading the preceding books before starting BLLB. I love all the Raven Boys but I have such a soft spot in my heart for Adam, something about him just touches me. He’s so vulnerable yet he’s finally finding himself in BLLB and I like this development. Gansey and Blue are still dancing around their relationship, to kiss could mean the end of him-yep, they’re struggling and pushing things. Ronan, too, is pushing things but there’s a huge development that we learn about him so, if you read BLLB, you’ll learn why. The ladies at 300 Fox Way aren’t without their own strife, as well. There’s a lot going on, outside of the hunt for Glendower, and it really kept the pace of the book moving quick.
There were some highly emotional areas in BLLB, and yes, I cried! Damn you, Maggie! How could you?! Although, there are some hugely funny scenes, too, that made me laugh out loud. I love the dry humor and sarcastic wit that Maggie writes so flawlessly. The characters are remarkable, they are made of substance and personality, each with such a distinctive voice, that I feel I know them, through and through. When I care about the characters in a book, I know that book will have forever touched me. There is the introduction of new characters, some I adored, and some not so much but the important thing is that they all brought a richness to this third installment.
I am going to abstain from talking too much about the plot line, except to say that Maura is still missing, the search for Glendower is on with a vengeance, Mr. Gray is a big part of this book and Greenmantle shows up in Henrietta with his wife, Piper, as the new Latin teacher. There’s a new cave that is found which introduces us to a new character, Jesse Dittley, whom I loved! I will say that finding the new cave is a coup because the Raven Boys are getting somewhere! And in the famous words of Forrest Gump, “That’s all I got to say ‘bout that!”
I have no idea how I’m going to make it until the next book, seriously! I imagine that you can tell from my review that I would not only highly recommend this book and series but think everyone should read it. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest bookstore or library! It’s just that amazing!

It’s a dark southern gothic with an amazing historic account that delves back into the 1600’s. Charmingly romantic and eerily creepy, and Yep, I can come up with many more superlatives because it was just that fantastic!
Compulsion centers on Barrie Watson, a very non-normal girl with a ‘compulsion’ to find things. Barrie cannot ignore this compulsion without significant physical discomfort. . “Finding things was the Watson gift. Barrie could find anything – had to find it, really – and the pressure that built in her head whenever she was near something lost had seemed stronger ever since her mother’s death” (Location 68). When Barrie loses her mother, Lula, she heads to Watson Island in the Deep South, to live with her Aunt Pru, her mother’s twin sister, at Watson’s Landing Plantation. Barrie has an immediate connection with Watson’s Landing and feels immediate tugs of loss from within the house and the surrounding woods.
Once at Watson’s Landing, Barrie meets Eight Beaufort and learns a bit about the Islands history along with the curse that has hounded the three founding families: The Watsons, Beaufort’s and Colesworth’s, since the mid-1600’s. The curse of The Fire Carrier, sound ominous, right? Well, it is! I won’t delve too far into it, it’s better if you read about it!
Barrie first sees the Fire Carrier that cursed the founding families her first night at Watson’s Landing, as she watched him light up the river with a ball of fire she at first thinks she’s jet-lagged or hallucinating but she eventually realizes what she’s seeing is real, although it’s terrifying to her, she’s also interested because she knows the Fire Carrier can reveal the answers she’s searching for. This starts Barrie and Eight on a journey that will lead them into deep peril and treachery. You must read the story to find out more!
I love, love, love, the characters in this book! They are rich, they are deep and they are so real! Barrie is flawed but loveable which makes her the most perfect of heroines. Eight Beaufort is equally awesome, what one would think is a perfect guy reveals that he, too, has his flaws. Together, they make a great couple. Their romance bloomed beautifully, it was sweet, charming and romantic. These two characters really complemented each other and were a joy to get to know. I cannot wait to read more about them. The secondary characters, Aunt Pru, Cassie Colesworth, Wyatt Colesworth, and Mark were all equally personable. They were people that I really truly either liked or deplored, pitied or feared, some I even cried for!
Compulsion is deeply atmospheric, it is written so beautifully and descriptively that it was easy to imagine myself at Watson’s Landing Plantation, from the heavy humid air to the sweet smell of the magnolias.
I am impatiently awaiting the next in The Heirs of Watson Island series!

Unmarked by Kami Garcia is the second book in The Legion series. The first book, Unbreakable, was unbelievable! I loved it! Unmarked is just as amazinUnmarked by Kami Garcia is the second book in The Legion series. The first book, Unbreakable, was unbelievable! I loved it! Unmarked is just as amazing, maybe even more so. The entire series so far is dark, eerie and incredibly suspenseful.
Unmarked starts off pretty much where Unbreakable left off, Kennedy is in a boarding school, separated from her friends and blaming herself for the release of Andras, the evil freakin’ demon who is now abducting girls who, it seems, have a striking similarity in appearance to Kennedy. Havoc is being wreaked everywhere and even the weather seems to be affected by Andras’s release from Hell. It seems that Andras has found Kennedy at school judging by the weird things that are happening to her. It isn’t long into the book, though, when Jared comes for her and begs her to join up with her friends from the Legion. Although she’s apprehensive about this, she is in love with Jared (and he, her) and despite her guilt, she misses her friends and wants to help get rid of Andras. Even though she knows she isn’t one of them, a true member of the Legion. For those of you who haven’t read Unbreakable, Kennedy didn’t receive her ‘mark’ after dispatching a spirit. This is a true testament of whether or not you are a true member of the Legion, so Kennedy remains, ‘unmarked’. As you get through Unmarked, there is an explanation as to why this is, but for me to give the reveal would be to unleash a huge spoiler so, yeah, I just won’t do that!
Kennedy’s friends, which include the former love triangle of Kennedy and the twins, Jared and Lucas (so glad the triangles over!), Alara – a tough, yet somewhat tender hearted girl with a strong voodoo upbringing, Priest – a home-schooled techie that is brilliant yet entirely way too trusting and Kennedy’s bestie, Elle, who is a great addition to the gang and definitely not Legion. They start off on an extremely perilous journey to stop Andras and it is, indeed, filled with pitfalls, death, and destruction. Make no mistake, Unmarked is not a fluffy, feel good book. There is definitely darkness here and it has an eerie atmosphere that creeped me out. For instance, possessed people doing violent terrible things, which is always a bad thing, in my book. Andras is a scary dude and not someone I’d want to mess with, he knows every deep dark secret or fear that each person has and he uses it against them. Unfortunately, Jared’s biggest secret is let out of the bag and at the worst possible moment – ever!
Along the way, the group runs into a couple of guys from the Illuminati, and there’s a huge revelation that is startling and heart-breaking for one of the gang’s members but it does explain a lot of the questions I had. Interestingly, there’s a bit of a historical component in the book that I enjoyed regarding the Illuminati and its background – whether it’s fact or fiction, I know not, but I still found it quite fascinating!
The story is quick paced, I both read and listened to Unmarked. So glad that I did this! I had the opportunity to get a very different view point on the story that I think that only audio can give me. So, while listening, I couldn’t skip ahead to ease my nervousness about what was going to happen. This is a good thing for me, as I tend to do that! There’s a lot of action and highly suspenseful moments in Unmarked, I mean, HIGHLY suspenseful, and listening to the narrator really builds a level of anticipation that had my palms sweating. The only bad thing was when I was shaking out my rugs and the static electricity almost blew my eardrums out … yeah, won’t do that again.
Bad thing? There’s a cliff-hanger and I really, really dislike those – with a freakin’ passion! Why do authors do this? Seriously, now I have to wait a year for any sort of resolution … uh-huh, yeah, that’s not painful at all – said nobody, ever! That’s really my only complaint and hence 4 stars as opposed to 5. Minus 1 star for making me sweat it out for a year! It’s only fair! Obviously, I so recommend this book! ...more
Okay, so I’ve been on somewhat of a thriller/horror kick lately. The 100 Society by Carla Spradbery had the potential to be a great thriller but to me Okay, so I’ve been on somewhat of a thriller/horror kick lately. The 100 Society by Carla Spradbery had the potential to be a great thriller but to me, it was a bit sophomoric. I really, really wanted to like this book … I really did but I have a big problem with characters that just behave stupidly. Especially when the author initially portrays them as smart characters and I have to watch their intelligence level take a nose dive throughout the book.
The 100 Society is a group that begins at Clifton Academy, the essence is that they tag a series of locations – 100 locations to be specific - with their unique graffiti mark. This will gain them unrecognized fame and glory. It will also get them expelled from the academy if they’re caught. This is one of the biggest fears of the main character, Grace. Grace has a serious inferiority complex caused by her highly successful older brother, Jack and lack of attention from her surgeon father. So, it’s sort of a tug-a-war for me in the arena of ‘why in the heck is she doing this’? Why risk expulsion if your biggest fear is disapproval from your father? But … one character, Ed, makes a comment in the book that if they manage to tag all 100 locations, it will all but guarantee them a spot in the finest art schools. But that leads me to the question: If they can’t tell anyone, ever, how will the finest art schools know they did it? So, you see my dilemma here.
What started out as such a promising read quickly became a bore. Grace and her friends blatantly ignore billboard size signs that read, “Yep, I took out your buddy and you’re next!” and continue on blindly, all for possible street cred? I mean nobody’s going to know they did this and if anyone finds out, the best possible outcome is expulsion from school and parental disapproval? Let’s face it, if you get expelled from school, chances are that the ‘best art schools’ aren’t going to accept you anyways. I guess if there was more to gain from belonging to The 100 Society, I could get behind it. Give me a better reason for this, please! Something more to gain ... anything! This was my biggest problem with the book, there was no feasible reason behind the premise. I understand that an unknown artist did this years ago and said unknown artist who goes only by 'A' has made millions off his artwork but it still doesn't tie in to the story and here's why: 'A' made no money of his graffiti tag, 'A' is a fictitious character within a fictitious work, therefore lacking any real credential that he is even a real artist within the book and lastly, I think that this tidbit about 'A' was thrown in there just to justify and give some vague reason for the 'New' 100 Society to even exist because, Lord knows, I can't come up with a valid reason.
The characters were bland and boring, I held out a lot of hope for Trick, I thought he would be the shining star out of all of them. The handsome yet tattooed rebel who comes off cool and detached, but nope, he became as two dimensional as the rest of them. Grace, the main character, felt flat and forced, selfish and self-absorbed. I never felt the closeness that this group was supposed to have, in fact, their interactions felt like a group of strangers. I have more intimate conversations in the Wal-Mart check-out line.
I will give credit to some mildly thrilling moments but that’s about the best I can do. I was disappointed in this book. Not something I would recommend.

This Is Your Afterlife by Vanessa Barneveld is a super adorable and quick read. I love a good ghost story and I wasn’t disappointed. Kiera is 16 yearsThis Is Your Afterlife by Vanessa Barneveld is a super adorable and quick read. I love a good ghost story and I wasn’t disappointed. Kiera is 16 years old and solving a murder mystery with her ex-best friend, Dan. Thing is, the murder victim, Jimmy, Dan’s brother, is helping!
What a good story! I really enjoyed the way everything unfolded – Dan and Kiera were best friends until Kiera confided she always had a bit of a crush on his more gregarious brother, Jimmy. After that, things were never quite the same. When Jimmy’s murdered, they come together to find the killer and old feelings are rekindled.
The characters are great, easily relatable, affable and real. This is something that I look for in a good book, characters that I can relate to and as I read the last page of This Is Your Afterlife, I felt like I had made new friends. This is always a good thing!
Grief and loss is an issue that I think the author really did justice to in this book, not only did Kiera lose Jimmy but she had recently lost her grandmother. Delving into this heartbreaking topic is difficult under any circumstance but Ms. Barneveld handled the topic beautifully.
Great romance, thriller, mystery and ghost story! I highly recommend This Is Your Afterlife by Vanessa Barneveld! ...more
I absolutely love a good horror story and as we all know, horror stories don’t always have to have things that go bump in the night. Creed by Trisha LI absolutely love a good horror story and as we all know, horror stories don’t always have to have things that go bump in the night. Creed by Trisha Leaver and Lindsey Currie delivers an ultimate horror story that used good old fashioned flesh and bone humans to scare the crap out of me.
Three teens set off to a concert when their car breaks down near Purity Springs, New York. What they find is an abandoned town with sirens going off. Hmmm …. Strange? Oh yes, this is just the beginning of the nightmare that is about to become their lives.
The characters, Dee, her boyfriend Luke and his younger brother Mike, make an amazing cast of characters. Dee and Luke have an amazing relationship for a couple so young but Dee is a foster child who comes with a strong history of abuse. Luke is very gentle and compassionate, despite being an aggressive football player. Mike, Luke’s younger brother, provides the much needed comic relief with his snarky humor and sarcastic comments. There are some other well developed characters that come into play, the town cult leader, Elijah Hawkins, who I tend to think of as ‘Psycho Freak from Hell’ and his son, Joseph.
Trisha and Lindsey really know how to set an atmosphere! There is a sense of eeriness that is present throughout Creed that just doesn’t go away. It sort of permeated my mood and stuck with me. I don’t want to say much more, to do so will spoil the actual premise of the story and I don’t want to do that!
What starts out to be the beginning of a fun weekend for the teens soon turns out to be the worst weekend of their lives. In light of keeping this as spoiler free as possible, I will say that there is some serious sick stuff that goes down, there is some serious heart-breaking moments and there is some serious what the hell moments. And that is what kept me turning pages! All. The. Way. To. The. End!
If you like horror with a little side of psycho, then Creed is for you. Trust me, you’ll think twice the next time you get stranded on the side of the road! ...more

Frozen: Heart of Dread by Melissa De La Cruz is a mixture of futuristic dystopian, fantasy and romance. I really liked it. It was entertaining enough to keep me turning pages and that’s all I ask for in a good book.
Set in New Vegas, an icy frost covered wasteland where resources are scarce, life is hard and everything is … you guessed it, FROZEN! Not only is the land frozen but the world is polluted and almost all once living things are now dead. There are two types of humans, those with grey eyes and brown hair and those with colored eyes. Those with colored eyes are to be feared. Why you ask? Because they are descended from the magical Sylph and have magical powers like telepathy. Those with colored eyes are sought by the government for confinement which leads to the main character, Natasha Kestal or Nat. Nat is living in fear of discovery but she lives right out in the open in New Vegas as a blackjack dealer. She has disguised herself to look normal until she can find the right moment to leave New Vegas and escape to ‘The Blue’, a legendary place where the sky is blue and the sun still shines warm. This is where Ryan Wesson comes in, he is a runner and runners take people where they need to go as long as they can pay the price. What comes next is a journey full of peril, adventure and romance!
I really liked the characters that Ms. De La Cruz and her husband created, Nat is full of life, despite all that she’s endured. She’s witty and snarky and doesn’t take any guff, I respect that! She’s someone that is both likeable and badass! Wes is a charmer, he’s cocky yet honorable and not without his own sad story. I think this is part of what draws them together and makes them such a believable couple. Their chemistry is palpable yet not instantaneous … I like it!
The story is told in Nat and Wes’s alternating point of views, as a rule, I generally don’t like this but in Frozen, it works. It actually helped me get to know Wes on a different level and in a weird way, Nat, too. So, in this case I have no complaints. The plot is fast moving and descriptive, adventurous and fun. It left me wanting more of the series and that’s a great thing. I’m looking forward to the next in the series.
I would definitely recommend Frozen: Heart of Dread to friends!

The main story is centered on Kayla, a 16 year old who is telekinetic and Daniel who can teleport. The story isn’t just about ‘mind’ power but has an amazing storyline that rivals any adventure series or movie, although, there’s plenty of magic and a sweet romance to be had, too. There’s a convoluted plot with surprise twists that kept this novel fresh and interesting.
There is a quest to rescue Daniels mother who has been kidnapped and he enlists Kayla’s help in a less then ethical way and being the good and kind thief that she is, she agrees to help him. What neither of them expects is the can of worms it opens when they start searching the world for an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago.
The characters are remarkable, seriously! I loved the way that they interacted with each other and also how quickly I grew to like them. They are funny! Not to say that this is a funny book, quite the contrary but there is definitely a humorous rapport between the characters at times that had me laughing out loud! I love when I’m reading a dialogue between characters in a book and I just burst out laughing, that’s when you know that an author has really crafted their characters well. The secondary characters are just as entertaining and play just as big a role as the main characters, Kayla’s best friend Selena could have her own book! Queen Marguerite, the Voodoo Queen, and Kayla’s mother, Moonbeam, are quite the characters, as well. I am so hoping to see them all again … possibly in a follow-up novel?
I know I mentioned humor but keep in mind, Kayla is a telekinetic thief for a reason and there are some real issues at hand in the novel. There are some highly dysfunctional family matters, some deep betrayals and more than one person is lying!
I have and will continue to recommend this book to everyone I know! ...more
Catch Me When I Fall by Vickie Leigh is fun, light hearted with enough edge to keep things interesting.
It features Daniel, a 17 year old Protector ofCatch Me When I Fall by Vickie Leigh is fun, light hearted with enough edge to keep things interesting.
It features Daniel, a 17 year old Protector of the Night, someone who has previously died in sacrifice of another who now watches over the living while they sleep. Daniel protects his charge throughout their life from Nightmares, who are tangible and scary creatures that invade our minds and feed off the fear they invoke. Since Daniel is over 200 years old (in a 17 year olds body) he’s seen and fought many nightmares but it isn’t until he’s assigned 16 year old Kayla in a mental hospital that he is truly challenged.
The thing I like the most about the characters that Ms. Leigh created is their humor and wit, there were times I laughed out loud yet there were times when I felt their sadness as deeply as they did. Daniel and Kayla, the main characters, form a quick bond in the face of adversity but the secondary characters bonds are just as intriguing to me. Part of what I love in a book is the camaraderie of the characters and I really enjoyed this in Catch Me When I Fall.
I also really loved the world building! Ms. Leigh took us to places in the world like Rome and Paris and shared food and sights that were amazingly expressive and vivid. I love when I get to travel in my reading and it was an unexpected pleasure! Along with this, she created some really eerie creepy scenes that had me flipping pages at a rapid pace, I’m sure I won’t have a nightmare now without thinking of actual ‘Nightmares’ being behind it.
The storyline builds quite quickly and there’s plenty of action to keep the pages turning. There are a variety of supernatural creatures outside of the Nightmares, including witches and warlocks that I found fascinating and creepy all at the same time. The main big bad is a warlock who is out to do some evil deeds with one of our main characters but you’ll have to read the book to find out who and why!
