BOOK REVIEW – THE UNLEASHING BY SHELLY LAURENSTON



Book Description
Publication Date: March 31, 2015
Winging It

Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn’t for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.

In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig “Vig” Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life–but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines.

But Vig can’t give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera’s discipline, Vig’s loyalty… and the Crows’ sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

THE UNLEASHING IS WRITTEN IN TRUE SHELLY LAURENSTON FASHION.The characters and story line are well-developed. Kera is out of the military and now working in a coffee shop and killed. Vig helps her before she takes her last breath and asks Skuld for help. Now she is a Crow. This book had me laughing and wanting more by the end of the book. This series is going to be a hit just like all her other series are. Now I would not mind to have a couple of the men in this book. They are too hot to handle. Now I have to wait until the next book in this series. I urge you to pick up this book if you are a fan of Shelly Laurenston (G.A. Aiken) or if you have never read her. This book will definitely make you a fan. I give THE UNLEASHING 5/5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW- INFINITY BELL BY DEVON MONK



Book Description
Publication Date: March 3, 2015
Return to national bestselling author Devon Monk‘s heart pounding House Immortal series, where eleven powerful Houses control the world and all its resources. But now, the treaty between them has been broken, and no one—not even the immortal galvanized—is safe….

Matilda Case isn’t normal. Normal people aren’t stitched together, inhumanly strong, and ageless, as she and the other galvanized are. Normal people’s bodies don’t hold the secret to immortality—something the powerful Houses will kill to possess. And normal people don’t know that they’re going to die in a few days.

Matilda’s fight to protect the people she loves triggered a chaotic war between the Houses and shattered the world’s peace. On the run, she must find a way to stop the repeat of the ancient time experiment that gifted her and the other galvanized with immortality. Because this time, it will destroy her and everything she holds dear.

Caught in a cat-and-mouse game of lies, betrayal, and unseen foes, Matilda must fight to save the world from utter destruction. But time itself is her enemy, and every second brings her one step closer to disaster….

By going back in time and fixing the calculation of the original experiment will make sure that the Galvanized are created but they will stay alive. To make this happen they will have to escape being captured by the houses that want them dead. I LOVE THIS BOOK AND SERIES. I was on the edge of my seat while I was reading this book and then I was at the end of the book. I wanted more when the book was done.  Now I have to wait to see what happens until the next book. If I could give this book a 10, I would. I give INFINITY BELL 5/5 stars.  I urge you to read this series. You will not be disappointed.

The Dragon King and I: Fairest of Them All Book 1

Name: The Dragon King and I

Author: Adrianne Brooks

☆☆☆☆☆/5

This book was mainly a fill in while I waited for other books and I honestly that I wasn’t going to get into it at the very beginning but…it won me over quickly. The main female has to deal with a curse, which I will not spoil for you, and goes to find a way to break it, coming into contact with the supernatural, which of course no one knows about because isn’t that how it is in books? No one knows about the supernatural, right?

I’ll tell you a few things though, there’s fairy godmothers, goblins, witches, dragons, and of course, romance. Hopefully that little tidbit will get you curious about this book and let me tell you, it will be worth it.

In some stories, it feels like the woman…

BOOK REVIEW -HEARTBREAK HOTEL BY DEBORAH MOGGACH



Book Description
Publication Date: March 3, 2015

By the author of the bestselling The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, the hilarious and romantic novel set in a crumbling bed and breakfast

In her effortlessly winning novels Tulip Fever and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Deborah Moggach charmed readers and critics alike with her generous prose and hilarious dialogue. With Heartbreak Hotel, Moggach has triumphed once again.

When retired actor Buffy decides to leave London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for.

In possession of a run-down bed and breakfast that leans more toward the shabby than the chic and is, quite literally, miles from nowhere, Buffy realizes that he needs to fill the beds—and fast. Otherwise, his vision of the pastoral countryside will go up in smoke.

Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) nebbishy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers finds that they have more in common than perhaps they first thought.

A charming romantic comedy that will captivate even the most determined urbanite, Heartbreak Hotel is a supreme entertainment.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL is an eclectic group of people. It bring these people together when their marriage or relationship have ended. It also follows the life of retired actor Russell Buffery(Buffy). Buffy inherits a B&B from a friend.  This is a classic story that will make you laugh and cry. I enjoyed this novel. I had never read this author before, but I will definitely put her on my TBR pile. I give HEARTBREAK HOTEL 4/5 stars.
