Rating: A

In Guardian Demon, the final book of the Guardians series, things have finally escalated in the war between Guardians and hell. Lucifer has set into motion events that will allow him to break through the barrier to earth and destroy humanity. In order to stop him, the Guardians must pool all their resources together. This includes Andromeda Taylor, who, after the events that brought Michael back from hell has committed herself to leaving the guardians by “falling”.

Guardian Demon was an intense read and an excellent conclusion to these books. What made it so suspenseful was that everyone was racing against the clock to discover Lucifer’s plans for starting the apocalypse and to save loved ones who got pulled into the fire. This became direr as each move seemed to play into his hands. On…

VAMPIRE IN PARADISE (Deadly Angels) by Sandra Hill
Publication Date: November 25, 2014
Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna
Rated: 5 Stars


It’s been centuries since the Norseman Sigurd Sigurdsson was turned into a Vangel—a Viking Vampire Angel—as punishment for his sin of envy, but he’s still getting the hang of having fangs that get in the way when seducing women. Slaying demon vampires known as Lucipires and using his healing gifts as a cancer research doctor, Sigurd is sent to Florida’s Grand Keys Island as a resident physician . . . where he encounters a sinfully beautiful woman.

The only hope Marisa Lopez has of curing her five-year-old daughter is a pricey experimental procedure. When she meets the good-looking doctor, Marisa is speechless. Then Sigurd tells her he believes he can help her daughter. Could this too-hot-to-resist Viking doctor be an angel of some sort sent to bring a…

Review — Deliverance by C. J. Redwine

Originally posted on The Leaning Tower of Tomes:

Deliverance by C. J. Redwine, Book #3 in the Defiance trilogy. Read my review of Book #1, Defiance, here and Book #2, Deception, here. Source: Library. Format: Hardcover, 467 pages, Balzer + Bray, HarperCollinsPublishers, 2014.

There is nothing happy about the final installment in C. J. Redwine’s dystopian series. Rachel and Logan have been wrenched apart and are forced to brave their own separate journeys, each filled with horror and sadness. Yet they persevere through all the trials they encounter, swallowing their rage and hatred in order to do the right things. I got a bit burnt out on this series by the second book, and Deliverance sure gave me the nonstop train wreck I knew was coming. Blame, revenge, atonement… these themes are all covered here. There are some light spoilers ahead, nothing to ruin the book, though, but be cautious if you haven’t read Defiance and Deception.

7 point story system

Originally posted on For my writing journey:

Today’s post deals with another way to structure a story and it’s called 7 Point Story System. According to writer Dan Wells, who made a presentation of it a while back, this particular structure system can be applied to almost any story. He doesn’t take credit for it (nor do I), instead he said he found this structure from the Star Trek RPG (trekkie fans, rejoice!). Without any further ado, here it is:

Plot Turn 1
Pinch 1
Pinch 2
Plot Turn 2

The interesting thing about the above structure is that it works backwards (you’ll see that when you watch the video). For this structure to work, it is essential to know how your story or character arc ends, in other words you need to have a Resolution first. I should stress here that the Resolution isn’t the end of your book but rather the…

The Von Tassel sisters are in deep. With a new inn opening up to non-magic guests, these three witches have enough to worry about, but after a deal with the Headless Horseman, all three Von Tassel sisters must find their true loves by All Hallow’s Eve or forever be trapped as ghosts in Sleepy Hollow like their ill-fated aunties.

Will Stephanie be able to forgive her playboy ex? Will Bri be able to win back her childhood cruch-turned-ghost hunter? Will Lexi be able to sway her supernatural employee? And will they all be able to fall in love by the week’s end?

My Review

Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow put its own fun twist on witchcraft and the supernatural. Three sisters and their three dead now ghost Aunties are the main residents at their Inn in Sleepy Hollow. All of them just so happen to have rocky romantic pasts…
