URBAN FANTASY- “BROKEN SOUL” BY FAITH HUNTER


BROKEN SOUL BY FAITH HUNTER
Book Description
Publication Date: October 7, 2014
Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs….

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….

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

BROKEN SOUL will leave you on the edge of your seat. Jane is in deep with vampire politics and somebody wanting to kill her, she also has to get everything ready for the European Mithrans coming to town. While taking lessons on swordsmanship, Vamp HQ is attacked by a creature of myth, L’arcenciels, a creature of light. Also the Devil‘s Three show up and this is when the shit really hits the fan. During practice with swords, Jane ends up paralyzing Grégoire. This is a great fighting match between these two characters. She has a bomb left on her doorstep, and then she also has a sniper trying to kill her. The characters and storyline are well-developed.  I love the inner monologue she has with Beast. It always puts a smile on my face . If you have followed the series and you are rooting for something to happen between Jane and Bruiser, you better read the book. :) BROKEN SOUL will not disappoint, and I give it 5/5 stars. If you have not started this series, I urge you to do so.

URBAN FANTASY- “PENUMBRA” BY KERI ARTHUR


penumbra by keri arthur
Book Description
Publication Date: October 28, 2014
TWIN KILLING

Agent Sam Ryan wants out of the Special Investigations Unit. She’s sick of the attitude from her partner, Gabriel Stern. She’s sick of the paperwork. Most of all, she’s sick of feeling lonely. But her boss isn’t about to let her go that easily. He gives Sam a choice: either stay stuck in her office or guard a clone replacement of Dan Wetherton, a government minister. Sam reluctantly chooses the latter—even though she suspects she’s being used as bait to draw out the SIU’s elusive nemesis.

Gabriel would like nothing better than to be on his own, without a partner to hold him back. Then he learns that Sam has been assigned to protect Wetherton—or whatever it is that’s replaced him. Wetherton’s clone could have come from only one place: Hopeworth, the military base that contains the secrets of Sam’s past. Determined to protect her, Gabriel is drawn into a fight against unspeakable evil. And all too soon, Sam and Gabriel discover that the connection between them is far more powerful than anyone could ever have imagined.

This was a great series and I wish the author could have continued with it. PENUMBRA is well-written, with likeable characters, and a great storyline. Sam’s character has grown since the last book. She wants to find out who she is, and where she came from. She also wants her partner Gabriel to start treating her like a partner. When she is watching Wetherton strange things happen. Plus they have to find Sethanon. In this book Gabriel and Sam get closer together. I loved this book and give it 5/5 stars.

There is always one book that we always go to that makes you happy. What book is it that makes you happy? Is it a book from your childhood, or something more recent?
