My review of the final version....
A story of Star crossed lovers from an exceptional writer. I've fallen for the softer side of my favorite writer. We still get Gordon action and wit but she shows us in Shooting Stars that romance can be done with emotion and feelings instead of body parts and one liners. Don't miss this strong debut from what I am sure is going to be another epic series from the extremely talented H.D. Gordon ...more

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

Series review short and sweet
While I do readily admit struggling a bit with the first two (as I do with most authors 1st works) the payoff is most certainly worth it. Book 3 was awesome and A.M. Hargrove is one author to watch. It maybe just because I am not really big into sci-fi but never the less I am really glad I stayed with the series it is different and thoroughly enjoyable!
Rating - 4 stars!
Recommended for - teens and adults

Wow, what an amazing journey into a completely unique world. This Dystopian/Urban Fantasy Novel stole my breath. Journey under the earth’s crust after post apocalypse into the tri-realms for an emotional adventure ready to sweep you into it.
Adele is a 17 year old girl sentenced to life in prison because her father dared to question their unfair existence. For six months she has held her own in the juvenile detention center while waiting for her 18th birthday only to be transferred to a maximum security prison. She is a moon dweller, in this dystopian novel a moon dweller is the middle class but don’t let that fool you most of their neighborhoods are slums.
Tristan is a Sun dweller, Prince of the Tri-realms, first born son to the President. Sun dwellers have been taking advantage of the moon dwellers and even lower class Star dwellers for 500 years. However Tristan is unique and feels his father’s tactics are unethical and disgusting.
One day while fulfilling his princely duty he is in a parade that passes Adele in the yard on the detention center, their eyes meet and Adele feels an instant connection to him. That had to be her imagination right? Follow Adele and her band of rag tag friends in their mission to escape prison and rescue her father from the work camp he has been sent to. At the same time fate leads Tristan away from his Palace in his journey to escape his existence as the “Prince” of the realm.
Will they meet? Do they feel the same connection?
This was a fabulous work of art appropriate for all ages. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of this sweet and fantastical world from the amazingly creative David Estes.

You have an endearing heroine, a couple of sexy potential book boyfriends, and a great urban fantasy stage set.
Dawn, a vampire, has been training all her life and never been allowed to put her training to use. When her father finally decides to give her a "safe" assignment she is sent to a small town to train four misfit vampires to be the towns new guardians. But not all is at it seams in Angel Creek and must figure out who to trust and exactly what is going on.
I can't say much more than that, I don't want to be giving away any of the mystery. Absolutely check out this series for yourself I have a good feeling about this one!

This was just ok for me. Story is original and has allot of potential. However it needs to be longer. We need more back ground and more character development. If feels rushed. It is a very short 75 page read but it left me feeling unsatisfied.
I think if the author took a bit more time and developed this story a bit more and didn't end it so abruptly it would be a great read.
With that being said it was a nice way to spend an hour. If you are looking for a short read and the synopsis sounds intriguing try it on. ...more

Deity is The Book of 2012, tI just finished Deity again for the 100th time and my copy is looking pretty beat up (we NEED these in hard covers!!!)...
Deity is The Book of 2012, thus far, and I do not say this lightly! I am a huge Armentrout fan and I started with the Lux series because at the time my friend Kay said start with that one and Kay has impeccable taste so I did. I have allot of love and time invested in that series and would have said I liked it just a little bit more than the covenant series... But... Holy Daimon babies was Deity the freaking bomb or what?!?!?!?
I have been dying to share the awesome-ness that is Deity with the world since I got it.... er.... well, whenever that was that those wonderfully amazing people at Spencer hill Press sent it to me and I did my happy dance and all out fan girl freak out....
So yeah I read it and was quiet literally my mind was like this for days...
I could not even process and wrap my mind around how awesome the book was. And only now after spending months with it can I even make an attempt of talking about it.
In Deity we re-join Alex, Aiden, and Seth... oh and all those other people. We are re-united with our long lost friends and join the wait for Alex's 18th birthday.
All through this series I really couldn't decide who I wanted Alex to be with ... I mean Aiden and Seth (to me) were equally appealing. But in this one I became all about Aiden. He is just so .... yummy.
Really what's not to love?
Don't get me wrong I will always have hope for one of my favorite bad boys, Seth. If he decides to man up and take it I will always hold out with a little piece of my heart for him.
Seriously though girls, this book was the bomb digity ... all that and a bag of chips! Pre-Order your copy now. Maybe camp out at your local book store for it's release because I lie to you not it is epic.
I know I am not telling you much about this book, but believe me I have my reasons for secrecy! You DO NOT want it spoiled for you, I don't even want to try to tip toe around the plot and risk it.... yeah, it's that good.
Of coarse Deity gets the Super smooch from me
Love You Jennifer Armentrout! Thank you for this amazing series and all the fun times I have with your characters. They really are truly unique and I love them all! Also thank you to those amazing people at Spencer Hill Press you guys rock!
~update~ I just ordered three copies from the Barnes and Noble where Jen is today! One for me, 2 for giveaways! Woot Woot!!!!
Happy Release Day!!!!!!!!!
Oh.... Also Enter the Diva giveaway's for a chance to Win signed copies ;-) ...more

Valerie Williams is a teenage socialite who seems to have it all. Designer clothes, a cute jock boyfriend, popularity and all the perks that come with it. She receives an allowance and is never short on funds to get the most expensive and current fashion forward clothes. While planning to buy her prom dress her mother drops a bomb on her life... no more allowance... she has to get a job. So she does what every teenager would do in her position... has a complete hissy fit! Does not help her though, the next day she is forced to go to work with her mom.
She has no idea her mom is a tooth fairy and she is going to love her job. We follow Valerie on her journey through her new job and while she discovers just how shallow she has been. While I was frustrated with her mistakes I cheered her on to make better decisions and deal with her problems.
Recommended for older teens and adults, this would be a great book to read with the teen in your life and give you opportunities to talk about the issues Valerie goes through and how she handles them. Rating - 4 Stars...more
