The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa book review

Standard

Last review!

TheLostPrince

Blurb:

Don’t look at Them.
Never let Them know
you can see Them.

That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

My name is Ethan Chase.
And I may not live to see my
eighteenth birthday.</em

The Iron Fey series is back with a bang!

Remember the cute, curly haired, little four-year-old boy who was kidnapped in the last series and older sister Meghan went to the NeverNever to bring him back?

If you do then picture the scene 13 years on from now… And Ethan.. Well Ethan is freaking HOT! And these books are all about him…

Ethan always wanted to stay from anything relates to the magical fey realm or fairies. The nightmare memories from his childhood of being a prisoner in enormous iron castle is still haunting him so badly that his heart is nothing but full of hatred against entire fey kind. He even blames them for the distance that has formed between him and his older sister Megan, who fell in love with one of them and left their family. Which is why Ethan wouldn’t dare to think or look at the fey kind; neither could he let them know about his existence or his power to see through the glamour of fairies.

Yet when his half breed friend gets kidnapped by a new and vicious race of forgotten fairies he’s forced to go back to the world of NeverNever, and along with the girl he would never dare to fall for…

AAAAHHHH

THIS BOOK!

I think I enjoyed it more than the Iron Fey books!

In this one we see Ethan go back to Faery, where me meets his nephew Keirran and has a not so happy family reunion with Meghan and Ash.

Of course we all know the reason as to why Meghan kept Keirran and Ethan seperate all those years… The prophecy.

It doesn’t come up much in this book but you know everything has already been set in motion because of their chance meeting.

Ethan is HOT (I mentioned this earlier but its good to say it again) and he’s broody and kind of a jack ass but you can understand why. And seeing as he vowed never to have anything to do with Feary again, he sure risks his life for his half breed friend.

And MacKenzie St James, the female in the book, damn that girl is feisty! She was just kick-ass as any boys of her age, and also the girl who secretly melted Ethan’s heart. She much more than what is seems. She made me smile and made me cry at the same time, especially when we learn her story. She didn’t flinch to make deals with fairies; she didn’t back away from Ethan, even if she was gravely unwell to go on with him. She was fearless of any incoming danger.

And then Keirran, Ash and Meghan’s son…

I loved Ash in the Iron Fey books with a passion and it seems as though his son has definetly inherited his fighting skills. He is a mixture of both Meghan and Ash so its hard not to know who he is as soon as he is mentioned. Keirran is master extraordinary power; he can exert three kinds of magic, summer, winter and Iron. He played a major role in The Lost Prince, he accompanied Ethan and Kenzie into their quest and fought battles beside them. No wonder Puck mentions that Ethan and Keirran reminded him about a certain pair.

This book had everything, Power, Fights, Heartache and new love.

And the creepy Forgotten… EEEEEEEK!

The catalyst for what we saw in the The Iron’s Prphecy has definetly just started and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!!

Seeking Crystal by Joss Stirling book review

Standard

Review number two!

13181901

Blurb:

Crystal Brook has always been the dud Savant in her family; paranormal powers just aren’t her thing. Dropping out of school with a clutch of ‘E’ grades and no future, she lives in the shadow of her high-flying sister Diamond. On a trip to Denver, a chance encounter with the dashing Benedict brothers leaves Diamond head over heels in love and engaged to be married. Crystal, on the other hand, is unimpressed by their charms . . . in fact no boy can annoy her as much as Xav Benedict! Back in Venice, their families assemble for Diamond’s wedding and a powerful enemy seizes the opportunity to attack. Crystal and Xav must join forces to save their loved-ones, unlocking a secret that, until now, has lain deeply buried . . .

When Crystal and her sister Diamond are out in Denver they are attacked by a bunch of thugs. When they are rescued Diamond instantly finds her soulfinder in the form of Trace Benedict and the pair are instantly engaged.

Crystal is injured and Trace brings them back to his apartment where younger brother Xav is ready to administer his healing gifts on Crystal.

The pair do not get on straight awya and its apparent that they are not each others soulfinders…

Crystal, unlike all the other savants, cannot do telepathy, in fact it makes her sick. So she’s a bit of a dud in the savant world. Especially to her family.

And then she gets a job doing costume designing for a local movie in Italy and while there she and Xav are invited to star as extras in the movie; playing lovers.

They kiss and sparks fly and even though they are convinced that they are not each others soulfinders they agree to see each other.

And then something happens. The Countess is out for revenge. Her son, in the second book, was one of the ones arrested, and she wants to get back at the Benedicts. So she steals their female soulfinders and wipes their memories so they have no recollection.

When Crystals powers are finally revealed and its clear that her and Xav are soulfinders its up to her to save everyone…

Seeking Crystal manages to tie together the elements of the plot from the previous 2 books. It is just brilliant.

Crystal is a very different character to those we have previously encountered in the previous books. Utterly out of place in a family of savants due to her lack of paranormal powers. I really felt for Crystal; she’s not especially close to her mother who favors the savants of the family. She is, however, very close to her father, who is able to see just how special Crystal is with or without paranormal powers. His death is a devastating blow to the family but even more so for Crystal who felt he was the only person to understand her.

The relationship between soul-finders is examined closely and at a deeper level in this book than the previous two, bringing a greater level of understanding to the story as a whole. With the death of Crystal’s father it allows insight into how it feels to lose your soul-finder and also examines savants decisions to either wait and hope for their soul-finder or chance happiness with someone you know isn’t you’re other half. The depiction of heartbreak and being set adrift translates as an integral part of the plot in more ways than one.

The setting is quite simply beautiful, Joss’ descriptive narratives of the places and people really gives you an amazing insight into how everything look. Its like she’s transported you to these places from the comfort of your own bedroom.
All of the previous characters are again included, it takes a very skillful writer to develop this amount of characters and their relationships simultaneously.

There are some amazing revelations that I will honestly say I did not see coming but I am not going to spoil the story for you by telling you about them.

I loved everything about this book and the series as a whole and it ended with Crystal predicting where the rest of the brothers soul finders were so I hope there will be more books with the others left. Even if they are adults I need to know if they find them and what their soul finders are like.

I love this series and I reccommend it to anyone.

10 out of 10 stars for the series 🙂

Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling book review

Standard

Ah I’ve been behind on reviews again!

So here is the first of three…

10410278

Blurb:

Phoenix belongs to the Community, a gang of thieves with paranormal powers. Yves Benedict, an American student visiting London, is her mark. But Yves turns out to be more than just a target. He is her destiny. Her soulmate. The Community owns Phoenix’s past and it wants her future too. Can Phoenix save the boy she loves . . . and herself?

 

 

Phoenix, aka Phee, has had a hard life. She lives in a savant community that is ruled by The Seer. He wants all the riches, so with their powers, The Seer gives each community member a target to go and steal stuff from them.

Phoenix’s target is none other than Benedict brother, Yves. She uses her power to steal his goods, except Yves seems to know something is up and is still aware when Phoenix freezes time. Then he manages to blow up the bag once Phoenix has run away with it.

She then gets a second chance to steal from Yves but he soon realises Phee is his soul finder and begins to understand the terrible life she has been forced to live his sole aim is, with the help of his family, to get Phee safely away from The Seer…

AAAAHHHHHHH

YVES!!!

And I thought Zed was swoon worthy and then along comes Yves…

He is just so…

There is no words.

I love this quote from the book…

“I’m not a little woman you need to defend.’
His face hardened. ‘That’s exactly what you are: you’re my little woman and I’m not having you sacrifice yourself for me.”

I loved Phee. She was one of these girls who had a tough background like Sky did and then along comes a bright light into her horrible and lonely world.

Yves and Phoenix are so adorable together. They fit each other perfectly. I liked how their relationship gradually developed. They come from such different background it was only logical that there would be some issues in the beginning. It wasn’t just love at first sight. The pair of them grew together slowly, and even though we could see they were totally in love with each other, they took their time.
What I loved the most was how different Yves was in each book. In Finding Sky he was just Zed’s calm and always collected brother. But in Stealing Phoenix we see a whole new side of him. Yves’ special power is fire and the boy definetly lives up to it in this book. Especially when it comes to Phee. He will do anything for her.

I love Phoenix because she’s your perfect damsel in distress. She’s had a hard life, but she’s a survivor. She’s caring and selfless, but not in a depressing, gloomy kind of sacrificial way. She’s a strong character.

And I love the romance in this book. The concept of soulmates is really overdone, and sometimes it can be quiet boring. But not in this book. I liked that Yves and Phee are soulmates, and they’re attracted to each other right off. But Joss gave time for the relationship to progress. A lot of times, our heroine would fight it because she’s in denial or not ready or doesn’t want to give up her independence. In this case, the obstacle was keeping her safe and away from her corrupt and dangerous life before him. I don’t know how to explain it, but somehow, Stirling managed to make the soulmates concept work for me.

I also loved how we saw Zed and Sky from the first book in this one too and seeing them through the eyes of Phee you could see their love for each was much stronger. (Well a year had passed…)

I am so torn as to who I want more; Zed or Yves…

But then again there is one more book in this series featuring another Benedict brother so its about to get even harder.

Totally read this book too! I devoured it in a day and I’m sure the rest of you will too.

Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins book review

Standard

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Blurb:

Its time

Evil is running rampant, and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of demons and their oppressive ways.
  The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous – especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.
  In the most senual and fast paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.

WENDY!!! YOU… I JUST… I CAN’T… OH MY GOD!!!!

The last installment of this book follows on from the last story. Kaidan and Anna are finally, kind of, together. Well together but in secret. They still have to bring down the Demons of course.

With their allies ready for the word to fight, Anna has to leave her home with Patti and go somewhere safe. But things don’t quite work out that way…

Anna is in more danger being with Patti so they decide to seperate. And then comes some shocking news regarding Marna and Jay…

Anna knows she has to be strong but temptations between her and Kaidan are reaching fever point and her father tells them that there is a way for Anna to still stay pure of heart and to give in to her temptation with Kaidan…

Then Pharzuph sends Kaidan to hunt down Anna and bring her to justice after she’s seen weilding the Sword of Righteousness. Then the plan to bring down the Dukes finally get into motion.

With Anna held hostage by the Dukes in Las Vegas and the other Nephs its time to fight… but who will get out alive? And will Anna and Kaidan finally have the life together they’ve always wanted?

WENDY!!!

YOU JUST….

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

This book was the best one by far. It was so hard to put down because everything was happening and everything was at stake. It was intense and emotional and the love between Kaidan and Anna was stronger than ever in this book.

And oh god… the Jay and Marna news… that… it killed me cos I knew what was going to happen.

And Ginger… I liked Ginger a whole lot more in this book. Even though she was angry at the circumstances with her sister it was good to see her open up and show her feelings.

And Blake… Blake is my Kaidan back up haha. He’s just brilliant and sarcastic and such an amazing friend and is willing to help them all. No matter the cost.

And then Kaidan and Anna… Anna comes into herself more in this book, shes more badass. Open more to her fate and protecting the ones she loves.

And Kaidan. Kaidan wears his heart on his sleeve in this book and his love for Anna is seen more. Its good to see how much he’s willing to risk his life for Anna. How he’s changed from this bad guy, cocky, sexy guy of lust to this heart warming, swoon worthy, full of love and lust guy. He’s just… he’s amazing!

And oh god what happened to (blank) broke my heart. I didn’t see that coming.

All in all I loved this trilogy. Everything about it was perfect. With the right amount of love and action.

This series was a brilliant portrayal of good and evil and the group of people stuck in the middle waiting for their chance to make a difference. Everything was brilliant.

I’d definitely recommend you all to read this series, especially if you are a Jennifer L Armentrout fan. Wendy is definitely on par with her!

I can’t wait to see if she writes any more series!

10 out of 10 for the trilogy

Three books, three days: The Selection trilogy by Keira Cass; The Selection, The Elite and The One book reviews

Standard

These books… these books have just… I can’t even…

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH

THE SELECTION

image

Blurb:

In a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels THE SELECTION is the chance of a lifetime: to compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s heart.
  But for America Singer it means turning her back on her secret love, and lraving home for a prize she doesn’t want.
  Then America meets Maxon and all her plans start to crumble. Can the life she’s always dreamed of compare to a future she never imagined?

America is 17 years old and in Illeas eyes is old enough to be put forward for the selection. Except America doesn’t want to join. She has already found the love of her life and plans to marry Aspen Leger as soon as possible.

But Aspen wants her to sign up for the selection and so do her family. So she reluctantly agrees.

She never thought she’d be picked though, but she is. On national TV she is announced as one of the 35 girls who will compete for Prince Maxon’s heart. America has already made her mind up about him but when she meets him she realises he’s not what she thought.

One the day her named is called, Aspen breaks her heart and breaks up with her. So America has no choice but to try and forget Aspen and move on.

Its clear from the start though that America is Maxon’s favourite. After all she shouted at him before they were properly due to meet.

America makes it clear to Maxon that there is someone she loves back home and will help Maxon in anyway she can to help him find true love.

Through selection eliminations, girl cat fights, broken hearts and new friendships its clear as the days go on that Maxon and America are becoming more than just friends.

But the other girls want a chance with him too… and with her heart torn between her undying love for Aspen and her new found feelings for Maxon, this is definitely going to be one hell of a competition…

THE ELITE

image

Blurb:

America Singer is one of THE ELITE and Prince Maxob only has eyes for her.
  If she wins the competition for his heart, she will leave her pre-destined life for a world of luxury.  But the outcome is less than certain; the threat of rebel violence just beyond the palace walls is escalating into war and bitter rivals are ready to take her down.
  And as America’s feelings for Maxon grow stronger, ex-lover Aspen waits for her in the shadows. Where do her loyalties truly lie?

This one carries on from the first book. America is still having a tough time with her feelings and that gets even worse when Aspen turns up as a guard.

America’s relationship with Maxon is getting better and they are definitely getting closer. With America the nation and Maxons favourite the other girls are upping their game.

When a halloween party arises it seems as though Maxon is ignoring America but he’s merely keeping the others happy.

And then things start going wrong… Marlee, another selection competitor and America’s best friend is found in a compromising position with ine of the guards and that means death.

Maxon however has given them a different punishment but America cannot forgive him for his part in her punishment and finds herself distant from Maxon and seeking comfort in Aspen’s familiar arms.

With the threat of the rebels and a break out in the palace its clear that the northern rebels are after something.

Maxon however is getting closer to another contestant Kriss and America is feeling the pangs of jealousy and so thinking she’s lost Maxon for good, she sets about making the most absurd presentation to the public, one that will ultimately get her thrown out…

THE ONE

image

Blurb:

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown-or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, Americs realizes just how much she stands to lose-and how hard she’ll have to fight for he future she wants.

After America is pardoned and allowed to stay after her public outburst, the King himself is on the warpath. He wants America out of the competition for good and tries as many ways as possible for that to happen.

Not only that but Maxon has read her the riot act and she’s not feeling so good about her chances with Maxon anymore.

With his feelings for Kriss definitely in the mix, America is determined to get him back and it seems as though she does…

The threat of the rebels are reaching new heights and the palace is in lockdown. But Maxon and America are wanted for a talk with the Northern rebel leaders and things come to a new light.

They sneak out of the palace one night to find the leader to discuss things but while there things don’t go to plan as America is shot…

Back at the palace America tells Maxon that he must think of the other girls and not her as one of them could be the one and he does just that

America overhears Maxon and Kriss one day and has to listen as Kriss admits her feelings for Maxon and it makes him happy and then the pair have their first kiss…

America is ultimately more heartbroken than ever before bit shocking news causes her to head back home momentarily.

She’s still not in the King’s goodbooks but he lets her leave to visit her family. When she gets back Maxon makes it clear that it her he wants to marry and the pair finally admit that they love each other.

But the next morning Maxon sees America talking to Aspen and the truth about their old relationship finally comes out. Maxon is heartbroken and tells America to pack her backs… he’s changed his mind and is going to marry Kriss… at least she won’t break his heart.

On the day he’s about to announce his marriage to Kriss rebels attack the palace and one of them gets injured…

Will Maxon realise he’s made a mistake? Can America get him back? And most importantly will they both have a happily ever after?

OH MY GOD

THESE BOOKS

I was hooked from the beginning.  Everything about it drew me all in.

America is a fighter. She knows what she wants and what her heart wants but all that changes when she’s selected.

I love how from the off she’s true to Maxon and why she’s there. Although its clear that Maxon won’t let her out of his sights.

Maxon… what can I say about Maxon… there are no words that will do that boy justice. He’s just… goddess hes so perfect and gorgeous and I could just eat him haha.

The stories in itself is brilliant. The idea of a dystopian fairytale setting is so new and refreshing and so orginal. I love the idea of a prince and a selection of girls to win his hearts.

I took America and Maxon’s feelings to heart. I could understand how confused America must have felt regarding her feelings. For two years all she’s known is her love for Aspen and then he breaks up with her and shes thrust into this competition with a man she doesn’t want.
Once she knows him though her feelings change and you can see how she genuinely starts to care for him. And the Aspen shows up and Maxon starts spending more tine with Kriss and her best friend Marlee has just been given a bad punishment her feelings are all over the place. So what better way than to seek comfort in her ex love’s arms. But she starts feeling guilty for what she’s doing.
And then she finds out that Maxon and Kriss are no super close and he’s sharing things with her that he used to do with America.
And then she catches him in a darkened corner with Celeste having a steamy moment together so her mind is made up and her heartbroken. I can see why she does what she does.

Then there’s Maxon whose never been in these type of situation before. America is his first kiss and the girl he really wants to win over. But she pushes him away when things get tough and you can understand his frustration and why he spends time with the other girls. Its just all so AAAAHHHH you wanna bash their heads together!

And the last book… feels galore!

Everything about it tore at your heart and you start thinking about things. Little what if’s.

Like what if Maxon did pick Kriss?
What if America and Maxon admitted their feelings earlier?
What if, near the end of book three (without giving anything away), if they had gotten shot saving their life instead of the other way around? (Doesn’t make much sense I know but I can’t give it away!)
Oh and what if America had left?

Everything about the books has me thinking of these different scenarios and what would happen of things went differently.

It was a perfect series and I want more! Even though its over.

Celeste was the mean bitch in the first two books and I did not like her! But then in the third book she changed and I started to like her and then..  😥

Marlee was amazing as America’s best friend and my heart broke for her when she received that punishment.

Aspen is hot haha but he was the one who broke up with America, leaving her heartbroken and alone and in a way I don’t think he had a right to try and get her back. Especially when it was clear that her feelings for Maxon went beyond friendship.

And Kriss… that girl!  I wanted to tear her away from Maxon and shout at her to let him go because he’s America’s haha. I couldn’t like her for that reason.

I loved these books so so so so much and they are going to be on my mind and in my heart for a long time to come.

A fantastic trilogy full of heartbreak, action, love and everything else.

A definite must read!

Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins book review

Standard

OH. MY. GOD!!!

image

Blurb:

Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she would never do the work of her father- polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a claim. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whispers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her schools party girl. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself travelling the globe with Kopano, son of the Duke of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soob becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues hetween them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: Is loving someone worth risking your life?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Anyway.. brief summary.

So in this one Anna has totally embraced her bad side and is now seen as the wild party girl. Putting up apperances to the demon whispers who sre watching her.

Anna hasn’t heard from Kaidan for at least six months and her heart can’t take the loss of him. She needs him like she needs air.

But other than her love for Kaidan comes a prophecy from the angels themselves and it seems as though Anna is the one they are talking about. Telling her father everything, he hatches a plan to get othet Nephilim on her side and for that she must travel to places shes never been. But instead of sending her straight to Kaidan, her father sends her to Syria with Kopano to find Zania, the daughter of the Duke of Hatred Sonellion. But thats not an easy trip as they thought, seeing as Zania has a hatred for all men…

And then they have to leave for London to see the twins Marna and Ginger who are quick to ally with her.

Then a pit stop in Australia to get Flynn, the son of the Duke og Greed Mammon, on there side. Of course while there Anna totally gets it on with Kopana, learns something new about him and then eavesdrops on a phone conversation between Kopano and Kaidan… which isn’t the greatest conversation, especially as it leaves her even more heartbroken than before.

But then its time to face Kaidan and thats when things come to the surface. Can they both put their differences aside for the better good? And will Kaidan finally admit how he feels about Anna?

Holy amazeballs! Wendy did it again! This one was even more gripping than the second one and the scenes between Kaidan and Anna.. oh god!!!

Aaaaaahhhhhh!!

This one had it all, heartbreak, teenage drama, love, hopeful redemption, tense scenes and above all the most important thing; Kaidan.

I just…. Kaidan… no words can do him justice. Yeah he can be a cocky little shite but when his true colours surface when he’s around Anna, you can see that he’s vulnerable and in a desperate case of needing love.

And Anna… Anna was a little less naive in this one and really let her feisty side show through more which I liked. I love her friendship with Marna and how she was seen to care for Zania.

This story was more gripping than the first one cos a lot was riding on it. Kaidan and Anna’s feelings for each other played a big part in this book and at one point you are practically screaming at him to tell her how he feels. And when you learn more stuff about him, your heart just melts.

And Kopano. I like him and if Anna hadn’t seen Kaidan first then maybe they would have had a chance but they wouldn’t have worked out.

Kaidan and Anna have more raw and emotional energy between them and the sparks fly. They are made for each other.

And Blake.. gotta love Blake. He’s just the guy you want as your best friend (and boyfriend of course!) He knowd how to cheer you up and to take your minf off things and even though he puts on this mask like Kaidan you can see through it at times. I liked getting to know him better in this one.

This book is a brilliant and amazing sequel to Sweet Evil and even more questions are raised and it gets you thinking. Sweet Peril was definitely a more heart story as it tugged on you emotionally.

And what happend to one of the characters… I was just getting to like them Wendy! Shame on you. But I know why you had to do it.

Please read!!

I’m on to the last book now! Eeeeeek more Kaidan!

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins book review

OH. MY. GOD!!

Blurb:

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?
  This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels
  Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel the emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself,  an inexplicable pull toward danger,  but Anna,  the ultimate good girl,  has always had the advantage of her anagel side to balance the darkness within. It isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
  Forced to face her destiny,  will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

Holy Hell this book!!!!!!!!

Aaaaahhhhh.

So Anna is a good girl who keeps herself to herself. She has her best guy friend Jay and they practically do everything together. And then on Anna’s sixteenth birthday,  her and Jay go to see Laviscious play. And from then Anna’s life changes.

She meets Kaidan,  the bands drummer and from then on her life changes.

Learning the truth from her adopted mother Patti,  she finds out that her father is a demon and she is damned for life.  Patti tells her of the Convent where she adopted her from and tells her that Sister Ruth wants to see her.

But with no money,  the pair can’t travel all that way so in steps Kaidan who offers to drive Anna to go meet her and her father in prison.

While on the journey Anna learns that Kaidan is the son of the Demon of Lust and she finds it hard to reign her feelings in for him. But Kaidan shows who he truly is behind his cocky exterior and its not long before Anna falls for him.

When Anna meets her father she finds that he’s not the evil demon she thought he was. He loves her. And its not long before she learns another secret about her mother…

And not only that,  to stop the other demons from coming after her,  Anna has to embrace the dark side and let her demon powers come through.

Kaidan however is keeping his distance. But you can tell that his feelings for Anna are the same… even if he will never admit his true feelings and hurts Anna in the process…

This. Book.

I know I said it before but OH MY GOD!!

Two words:

Kaidan Rowe. Kaidan. Rowe. KAIDAN ROWE! Seriously this guy is hot. Like major panty dropping hot! I know he’s a book character but still…

This book was hooking,  intense and amazing from the very first page and it was so hard to put it down! At first I was like god Anna you are so naive!  But when you learn about her past you forgive her for all of that. Anna is really sweet and awesome and I like it when her ‘bad’ attitude comes shining through towards the end.

And the sexual tension between Anna and Kaidan. Oh my god!  You see it from the first time they meet and god you have them shipped from then!

And Jay is so amazing!  He is such a brilliant best friend and is there for Anna whenever he can.

And the other Nephilim that turn up; Kopana,  Ginger, Marna and Blake are brilliant too. Each one of them have different qualities to them and they are easily likable.  Even Ginger… whose a bit of a hard faced cow haha

Oh yeah… and Kaidan is English!  *SWOON* haha I know I’m English too but seeing it in a book and on a hot guy is even better haha.

I can see now why Jennifer L Armentrout kept bigging up this trilogy. It really is amazing. Its a JLA syle book so if you love her like I do,  then definitely read this. 

You really won’t be disappointed. 
Trust me.

Shall I give you a little book teaser? 

Okay here it is… 

“I wanted to see your freckle.”
  A vulnerable tenderness flashed across his face,  more painful to see than the coldness. It took every ounce of stength I had not to beg for one last kiss. As fast as his expression had softened,  it was back to stone again.
  “What do you want from me Kai? ”
  “For starters?” His voice lowered to sexy,  dangerous depths.  “I want to introduce myself to every freckle on your body.”
