Shadows and Light
Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light
I don’t know what I am, but I’m not human...and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there’s a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It’s the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkn...more

Now, to be honest I wasn’t quite sure how to review this book, whether to do mini-reviews for each novella or a general one but since th ...more
Reap The Shadows, Slay The Light: A bit dark but it had it's funny moments. I loved the support Willam gave to Phoebe. She endured a lot at such a jong age but mange to rise.
WarWolf Half Breed: I laughed out loud a few times. Declan Is defiantly one that will grow on you. I could relate Em ...more
The three novellas in this book, are amazing. i haven't read many paranormal books, even so, you could get a feel for the caracters & drawn into the story.
1) 'Reap the Shadow, Slay the light was full of emotion. The story is about Phoebe & William. Phoebe saw many tragities throughout her life, the loss of her closest friend & her mother (Williams sister & mother) & the loss of her father & subsequent step fat ...more
So I was lucky enough to be a beta/arc/given this in exchange for an honest review, sort of thing and I am always honest. I just happened to love every one of these novellas.
My review is going to be different from my normal ones because this was three novellas in one book, cool? Cool.
So overall, I loved the mix of two humorous stories and one more serious, darker story. I thought while they stories were shorter they were complete, would have I liked to have seen more of ...more
This series was fun and serious at the same time. I found myself eagerly waiting to find out what was going to happen next. Each character was develo ...more
Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light: A different take on the eternal battle between good and evil and one I found intriguing. Phoebe's panic and pain over what she experienced is compounded by all the things she doesn't know about herself and what she is. Loved Willam's restraint and his desire to be there for her. *thumbs up*
WarWolf: Half Breed: A sweet, ...more
Reap the Shadows, Slay the Light
Of the three, this was probably the darkest story. It still has a good ending, though, so don't despair too much. The author has a captivating style that drew me in, which wasn't so good in this case, since it's a bit depressing. But still, kudos for the imagery. Or not. You know what I mean...

The second was by far my favorite. The male lead was wonderful and I couldn't help smile throughout most of the story. Really delightful. Ema's transformation was a bit abrupt, but for a short story, it got the job done.
The third had me snorting with laughter. The female lead w ...more
* Shadow & Light
A sweet modern day creation story/morality tale. I kept thinking: this doesn't make sense. Everything created continues to exist only if it can find a way to balance nature. And that was the point.
* War Wolf
A very different fast-paced romantic comedy of a warlock/werewolf who tries to avoid being herself & the emotional & sincere werewolf who attaches himself to her.
A cute teenaged story of mistaken identities & ...more
All in all it was a great quick read, enjoyable. She gets a five star from me!!
Whether it is a long story, a series, or a short novella, Melissa always out does herself. She is an exceptional writer and it makes me happy that I can read all these wonderful pieces that come from that brilliant brain of hers. Each short story was so good. I always loved her humor and it definitely comes out in these. William, Declan, and Racer seem dreamy and make it hard to chose a book boyfriend I like more!
I loved reading this book although the stories were way to short ;)
