My goals in life were simple: become a nurse, get a regular paycheck, and call my own shots…

Taking a bullet to the head wasn’t part of the plan.

After spending my twenty-first birthday in a coma, I woke to find myself without a job, without a boyfriend, without a place to live, but in full possession of brand-new POWERS—powers I couldn’t control.

I couldn't finish the book, the characters were way too unlikable and unbelievable. The dialogue was ridiculous and didn't make any logical sense. There little to no world building. I would say there is nothing remotely interesting about this book.

Georgia & Carter are an interesting pair, and what brought them together is interesting in itself ... who knew being 21 could be so difficult?

It was okay

This story didn’t seem to go anywhere. Georgia would train, and say she could take care of herself, but then she had to be saved by Carter. It happened over and over again. She was prickly at the best of times, and after she had been saved, she lost all trust in everyone around her. Then she regained the trust, over and over again. She and Carter had a really weird relationship. It was like the author was trying to make them fall for each other, but at the same time have Carter try t

Painful to read. At 84% I couldn’t stomach it anymore. It highlights everything that is wrong with self publishing: lack of talent and of “trade”. You might not have the first and still write something half decent, but when you don’t know how to write… ouch.
And here there really was nothing salvageable, plot, world building, characterisation but above all the writing itself. This is what a would be teen “writer” has in her dream/desk. But it should have stayed there.
I wonder if that “bestselli

“Demon Marked” is the first bookinto the new “Venandi Chronicles” Series by Sara Snow. Venandi Chronicles, a captivating supernatural story featuring, demons, vampires, and horrible boyfriends, horrid really, the kind that abandons you into a coma and move into your former apartment with your best friend/room-mate, but wait there is more…. the looser even has a reason, after all you got robbed and shot in the head, is not as you expected the poor guy to wait for you, or did you. Georgia did and ...more

I stopped reading around the 70% mark, I just couldn't take it anymore and didn't care about any characters. What could have been an interesting premise devolved a mishmash cliches and contradictory nonsense. The main character's personality is inconsistent. Sometimes she's mature and practical. Sometimes she's childish, stubborn, and little bratty. The love interest reads like a woman who knows nothing about men designed him. He falls in love with the main character having never actually met he ...more

**Warning, Cliffhanger!”
This is an ongoing series, and the end of this book is a fairly big cliffhanger…

When Georgia survives a gunshot wound to the head, she doesn’t know that it is the beginning of a new life for her. In a blink, everything has changed, and not only is she introduced to a world filled with powerful beings, but she discovers that there is far more to her own past than she ever knew.

This is an urban fantasy/paranormal series, and introduces us to a dark world of evil demons

Honest Review!

Ms. Snow asked for an honest review so I'm giving one. This story was pretty decent but I couldn't get past the plot holes and errors that would've benefited from a going over by a good editor. I finished the story so it kept me engaged but I do not really find a desire to continue the series. I try very hard to never give a bad review as I think writing to please the public is intensely difficult. I only write this one at the author's request. Please have a good editor look over t

WOW!! What an amazing start to a gripping and action filled supernatural series, where we meet our spunky heroine Georgia and our tall, brooding hunk Carter. Never being able to fit in is enough to drag anyone down but to Georgia, it just strengthens her resolve to stay from everyone, including her cheat of an ex Adam. Turning 21 brings more challenges than a mere human can handle but with friends made in unexpected circumstances, can she fight her way to being the independent woman she dreams o ...more

good start to a series

I got this as a kindle unlimited read and it’s pretty good for a first book in a series. I’m not overly amazed by the characters but they have potential. I’m also not a huge fan of alternating perspectives of characters but it works well for this book setup. I’m intrigued enough to dive into the next one.

Eh. Not for me

The synopsis for this book sounded great and I was looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately the book didn’t live up to the synopsis. I struggled to finish it.

The female main character is a *itchy, whiny, immature brat who acts like a child. The romance aspect was laughable and disappointing.

I won’t be reading any more of this series.

This is a brilliant read.
Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start.
Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable.
Great suspense and action with wonderful world building.
Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.
Recommend reading.

I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters ducked me in. I found myself rooting for Georgia and hoping her life would finally work out but how can that happen when demons are after you?

An amazing first installment in a new UF/PNR series. I loved the world building and the plotline is truly caprivating. Set in the modern world, we have vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, witches... everything you can think of. I can't wait for the next installment! ...more

I absolutely loved this book! I love Sara Snow’s books in general, but I love that there’s so much action, creativity, & a budding romance. I can’t wait to see where Georgia & Carter’s story blossoms. Can’t wait for book 2!

It starts off a bit slow but gets more gripping. I'm not sure how I feel about Carter yet. Georgia feels like she'll be a badass once she gets into her groove. I need more of this series quickly!

I’ll admit I liked the whole story. The characters as well. Georgie was ok, she’s a bit hot headed and very very obtuse. To the pint you want to smack her!

Page turner

I really liked finding out about Georgia’s past and seeing the family she is gaining! Can’t wait to jump into the next one!

Great start!

Great storytelling and interesting plot. Can’t wait to see how the story plays out. References to childhood trauma without too much description.
