Dying isn’t the worst thing that could happen at seventeen, right?
Growing up on the streets of New York City, I imagined my death probably about a thousand times. Getting hit by a stray bullet, ticking off an angry drunk, or even stepping off the sidewalk too quickly and getting run over by a yellow cab. But this… this was something I would never have imagined, n...more
Short review since I'm not feeling well at the moment..
The beginning felt rushed to me... mental red flags popping up at how fast Aria accepted everything but I was enjoying the story regardless. It picked up after a bit and I was enjoying the world the author created.. and a few spots had me amused :).
Damian... he was okay, I never really warmed up to him fully. Nothing agains ...more
First, I'd like to say I'm a huge fan of the Wilder series. If you haven't read it yet, you should. This book is a spin-off of the series with some of its main characters making appearances throughout.
I was wildly impressed with Aria, her humor, acceptance of a new lifestyle and trying to find the silver lining in everything around her. She's young, with a great head on her shoulders, yet her heart is torn between two men...vampire/ex-vampire.. ...more
Things get weirder when they visit and find out that not only has Aria been accepted, but someone has already prepaid her entire two years as well as provided for room and board. All she has to do to start in the fall is show u ...more

I honestly love this book! Which really made it hard to put down. I like the storyline, the characters and the character growth and development. Which I do like the fact that you get that from the start and on as the story goes. I really do look forward to seeing how things progress for the characters. I don't really want my review to spoil things for those who have not read this book yet. I really enjoyed reading th ...more
I am on a witch hunt :P ( books obviously)
When I bought this book I didn't expect to be so paranormal?
It was a good surprise it started slowly and then as it went you were just sucked in the story!
I mean it had vampires, werewolves, werebears, witches fairies whats, not to like?
It had all kind of supernaturals in it! I loved the story and the characters although some of them were a little predictable. If you like those sort of stuff I would totally s ...more
This is the first novel I have read by G.K. DeRosa. I am impressed with her ability to pull the reader into the story.
Magic Bound is a fantasy young adult novel. It is well written with interesting and likeable characters. The story has a wide variety of paranormals and most of them work together to keep the bad at bay. There were too many "hot" guys for my taste but then I am not a young adult girl and I can see that they would be swooni ...more
