Review from 12/28/12
I am to close to this series so I really can't review it anymore. I work with H.D. Gordon but that started because I was her biggest fan, still am. But I am so close to the series now and I guess I shouldn't review it.
But I also purchased it so I should get to put in my two cents. So here it is....
The is no category or genre that we can properly box or label H.D. Gordon into, she simply is just a brilliant writer who creates the most amazing worlds I can escape to. Whatever the subject matter is I don't mind, as long as Gordon has dreamed it up, I am up for the adventure. Read The Alexa Montgomery Saga if you want an inspiring journey that will make you experience just about every emotion. I laughed (quite a bit), was outraged at our villain, I loved with the characters, and in turn loved them as well. I was completely disgusted and horrified when those were the appropriate situations. The twists and turns and pulse pounding action kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning and I was continually shocked and blindsided. Gordon's unique style of writing keeps the books' pacing where I felt like the ebook page turning feature wasn't turning the page fast enough. And oh boy did I cry with them and for them.
Every single one of H.D. Gordon's books shows her growth as a writer and the continued advancement of the mastery of her craft. I know she would disagree but this saga is a masterpiece. And it's Gordon's denial of that statement, that keeps her books getting better and better. This saga is a true piece of art and you can feel her passion in every word.
I really need more stars to rate her books.
So thank you H.D. for taking a chance and being brave enough to share your unique world with us, I loved every minute of the epic quest.
I purchased this book from the Amazon US site, I also received the beta version from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, I did not receive any compensation for writing this review. And As I said I also work with H.D. Gordon.
Review from 12/18/12 Just finished the beta read
How does she surprise and shock even me?
How is she able to make even me cry?
I'm too close to this series. I can't even review it anymore but this Saga is a masterpiece.
It fits in no category or label I can think of, It is simply H.D. Gordon.
You never know what's going to happen in her world because we find out right after she does. ...more

I am completely beside myself, I have no idea how to make you understand the howspectacularthis book is...
Did you love Blood Warrior?
Wasn't it great?SI am completely beside myself, I have no idea how to make you understand the how spectacular this book is...
Did you love Blood Warrior?
Wasn't it great? Suspenseful? Didn't you love Alexa and her journey?
Did you hold it dear to your heart as I have?
Throw it in the f-ing trash!
Why???? Because it is Hankey the Christmas poo next to Half Black Soul.
This past year has found breakout author H.D. Gordon very well indeed. Her writing has surpassed Blood Warrior by leaps and bounds and now we have an author who will reinvent the genre. H.D. Gordon is Stephen King for Young Adults. I know I can’t believe I said it either but mark my words this young author is going to be a best seller before you know it.
Alexa is magic, a tough young heroine with a very dark side to her. In book 2 we get a better look at that monster and what it is capable of. Also since half the book is written in Nelly’s perspective you get a very good look into her mind and it’s not all peaches and cream guys. We know Nelly is half Lamia already but she has held her power in check because Alexa has always been there to protect her. Now with Alexa on a mission to find out what really happened to their mother Nelly has to protect herself as well as try to figure out what he sister has discovered. Also on this journey, nope I don’t do spoilers so keep reading, we get a better look at Kayden and the stuff our sexy hero is made of *sigh*….
Can it get any better than that? DO NOT answer that because just when I think it can’t get any better, you know it does.
There are some huge bombshells Ms. Gordon drops on us in this book, surprises even I didn’t see coming. This is a gripping journey into a spectacular and unique world, there is nothing like it out in this genre. I said in my review of Blood Warrior that House of Night and Vampire Academy fans will enjoy this world, well… in this book H.D. Gordon separates herself from those well known titles because they are NOT like this darkly thrilling world.
I gave Blood Warrior 5 stars and now I wish I hadn’t because now I have to invent a new category as everything else will now be judged…BEAST!!!
You will love it if you like bad ass Chicks, sexy heros, fast paced stories, and epic adventures.
Edgy YA - recommend for older teens and Adults
Rating - BEAST
Release Date January 31st 2012, Do. Not. Miss. it.
You know I already know what Alexa & Nelly look like... they have their own covers.
And this is my new Jackson is this guy... have no clue who he is!
Wow, I just can't believe it. I don't so spoilers in my review but oh do I want too. The last one Georgina made me so upset with her screw-up this oneWow, I just can't believe it. I don't so spoilers in my review but oh do I want too. The last one Georgina made me so upset with her screw-up this one made me cry. If you aren't reading this series pick it up immediately. It never fails to surprise me and go through a million emotions. I had this one from the library and immediately bought the next one on my nook even though I had 4 books scheduled to read before the next one in this series.
This was really a great addition to the Lords of the underworld series. To be honest, I wasn't all that excited about Paris's story. Maybe it was dragThis was really a great addition to the Lords of the underworld series. To be honest, I wasn't all that excited about Paris's story. Maybe it was dragged out a bit to much, but it turned out to be really enjoyable. Sexy as always!
