5* Explosive stars from me

I'm very excited to review the new fifth installment of Seven Forbidden Arts series Geomancist, i don't know how to begin reviewing it, i want to say so much about it without spoiling anything. This story brings a fresh new vibe in the series and three words can definitely describe it.. Enjoyable, Passionate and Agonizing (i'll explain that later).

In this book the main characters are the very cryptic (he has a reason for that) and introvert character Sean who at

"He didn't want anyone else to want to touch her, because he wanted to own those rights exclusively."

I haven't read any paranormal or romanctic suspense in a long time while it was two of my favorite genres a couple of years ago. Geomancist opened my eyes for the world I was missing. This book had the right amount of suspense, romance and a bit of paranormal thrown in to it.

This book is focusing on Asia and Sean who both want to own a pub a

This is the fifth book in the Seven Forbidden Arts series. I loved it!

Asia Sommer is a wonderful character. I liked her a lot. She is determined to give her brother the opportunity to study in a prestigious art college in Cartagena and moves with her brother and grandmother from Copenhagen to do so. Unfortunately, she doesn't have enough money to set up her beauty salon, so accepts the offer of a job at a birthday party on a small island off the coast. However, she wasn't expecting to meet the i

Geomancist is the fifth book in the Forbidden Arts series, and though I only read the first two installments beside, of course, this one, I can say I'm getting more and more excited upon starting to read them.

Miss Pauls has created an explosive mix with characters that truly shine in the fine weaves of the plot.

In Geomancist we see determined, broken Sean, trying to salvage his sister's dream of opening a cocktail bar and the feisty firec

'Geomancist' puts the bar higher than any book before it. It's a story about forgiving yourself, finding love and kicking the bad guy ass. OK.. maybe is a bit more than that but let me tell you 'Geomancist' is a hot story that will burn your reader (or your hands).

The story takes place in Cartagena where Sean has been planning to buy a place to open a cocktail bar and fulfill his late sister's dream. Enters Asia, a beautiful Danish woman who wants to open a spa on the same place. Here begins a r

Sean Rivers hates the fact that he harbors a power unlike any other. He can manipulate the earth, and use its resources to his advantage. Unfortunately, his power has done him more harm than good, since it caused his sister's unfortunate demise. His vow to never use his power ever again is soon shattered when he meets the beautiful Asia. She incites both his protective instincts and baser desires, prompting him to make unexpected decisions at every turn.

Another awesome addition to the Seven Forb

This was a most extraordinary story to read and the first one I have read by this author. It was very well-written, intriguing, sensual, mystical and the story flowed effortless. Sean cannot forgive himself over his twin sister Maddy’s death and his nightmares haunt him. Sean thinks he has lost his art, and is unaware that Maddy transferred her powers over to him, when she gave her life to save his. Jerry is selling his Pub; Sean wants to turn it into a classy cocktail lounge, which was Maddy’s ...more

Aye, Sean....

First (and completely unimportant to this review) can I say a drooled a lot over Sean's accent in my head. Seriously hot!

Ok, sorry, had to. Now to the story, Sean is living for the one woman he lost. His other half...his twin sister. Darkness clouds his dreams and living her dream fills his days. As a Forbbiden Arts holder, he hides what his is and works as a mixologist. Which is totally hot by the way, I never would have thought about it, but it is.

Sean is our Geomancist, but he can't access his power any longer, following a traumatic event with his twin sister. He is desperate to own the bar he works in, so he can fulfil his dream. Then Asia walks into his life, and tells him that SHE wants the bar - to change it into a spa to fulfil HER dream! The race is on to see which will raise the money first, and be the owner of the bar/spa.

To do this they have to do something that neither of them wanted to - attend a week long private party on a p

Wow...where to begin? Geomancist by Charmaine Pauls has a little of everything...a suspenseful storyline, dynamic characters, sizzling chemistry, paranormal activity, and have I mentioned the steamy sex scenes yet! Damn, this book really should come with a warning that says...

Asia moves to Colombia to try to get her brother into an exclusive art program and open a spa.
Sean just wants to open his own bar, which was his twin sister's dream, after he feels responsible for her death.
They're both given an opportunity to buy the building where they each want their business. Neither one of them knows they're being manipulated into getting information to further Cain and his group's mission.
They both go to work for a drug lord at a party for his birthday on a private island.

This is an amazing series that keeps getting better with each book. The story line hooks you from the beginning until the very end. Sean is sure his forbidden art is gone and is doing everything in his power to make his sister's dream come true. Asia is struggling to keep a roof over her head and her families. When their paths cross it seems like life has been brought back to Sean. When Cain gets involved things change. This story has a lot of action and gives you more incite about the bigger pi ...more

***Note: Book provided by Author, in exchange I am providing an honest review***

OK this has been by far the darkest of the seven forbidden Series. The book has several triggers so if you are uncomfortable with some abusive sex scenes and womanizing I would suggest you tread carefully.

The book can definitely be read as a stand alone even though it is the 5th book in the Seven Forbidden Arts series.

In this book we are introduced to two completely new characters, Sean and Asia. Sean is a Geomancist

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Sean is a geomancist, he can move mountains, cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Or rather he COULD. After a traumatic event, Sean can no longer draw on his power and he settles himself for plans for a cocktail bar. But Asia wants the bar's building, for her spa. When Sean goes head to head with Asia, they end up catering to the guests of a drug baron's week long birthday party. A party which could get them both k

Dread. I think that was my predominant feeling throughout most of this book.

Have you ever been so scared while watching a movie or TV show that you had to cover your eyes? That’s how I felt for large portions of this story.

Our hero, Sean Rivers, award-winning mixologist, and heroine, Asia Sommers, beautician and aspiring spa-owner, inadvertently get themselves entangled with a soulless sociopathic criminal overlord. Trapped on a private island with a number of other “VIP” guests who are there to

I couldn't wait to read this, I flew through the first few books in the series, but I took my time with this one. There was a lot going on, and the two protagonists were both not a part of Cain's task-force - which gave the story an interesting twist right from the get go. Though of course one of them is a Geomancist so Cain's team were still involved. This part of the series had very high stakes, working undercover to gain information on a kingpin is dangerous at the best of times, let alone wh ...more
