 I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
This was an awesome read, with a well-developed storyline and characters. This was a fast paced roller coaster ride of a read. When we see Gin she is leaving a class at the college when she sees one of her waitresses being harassed by her ex-boyfriend. He wants her to sell the newest designer drug  Burn at the Pork Pit. When she refuses he is ready to convince her, or let the two vampires with him drain her. Gin was not going to let that happen on her watch. After Gin saves Catalina from her Ex she then has to save have to save her from Bernard Benson, after she witnesses him killing her Ex-boyfriend when he fails to get her to push his drugs. In this book we also get our first look at Mab Monroe’s daughter.
When Gin has to save her sister and Catalina when they are on their way to the precinct to take Catalina to the police chief.  Gin is captured and forced to take the drug Burnso that Benson can see how the great Spider handles the drug. At this point her friends have to save her. I really enjoyed the end fight scene between Benson and Gin, it was just a pure masterpiece . This is one book that is definitely a keeper, and if you have not read any in this series, I strongly urge you to start today. I loved POISON PROMISEand I give it 5/5 stars.

So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
This is the second installment in the Ann Bishop’s Other series, and like the last one it has its funny moments,. This book was much darker in tone than the last book WRITTEN IN RED. WRITTEN IN RED,was basically lighter and had more laugh out loud moments. It was basically dealing with Sam the nephew of Simon. MURDER OF CROWS is now dealing with someone who is tainting the food supply and the trash that the Crowgaurd like to go through for things that the humans throw away that are shiny and barely used or broken. When the crows eat the food they get to where they will not move out-of-the-way of people or cars, and many are killed. Meg has seen this in one of her prophecies.
More of the drug GONE OVER WOLF,and another drug. They have to find out who is doing this and stop it. Also Simon is starting to become jealous over Meg. He is thinking of her as his Meg, and he don’t want the other Terra Indigne thinking that he is acting more human than wolf. He is not quite sure how to deal with these feelings about Meg, and he knows that mating with a human is not possible. He is basically at a loss of what to do. Meg is also having to sort through her feelings about Simon. This was a great book to read, with a well-developed story line and characters.  I can’t wait to see if there will be more to this series. I love MURDER OF CROWS, and I give it 5/5 stars.

SPOILERS*****SPOILERS******SPOILERS******SPOILERS

I will try not to reveal too much of the book and spoil it for you, but just in case I put up the spoiler alert for those that don’t want the story spoiled for them. With that said let’s begin. We start off several months after the last book EVER AFTER ended and Rachel is doing security for Trent. She is also trying to convince herself that she is not falling for him and to get the kiss out of her mind. Then the action starts off with a bang and we have nonstop action throughout the book. In this book something or someone has put the Undead Master Vampires to sleep and not wake up. For those that have been waiting a long time for Trent and Rachel to finally get together will not be disappointed. In usual Rachel fashion she is flying by the seat of her pants trying to find the answer to the problem of how to save her city before it is destroyed.

This is one epic adventure that will take you on  one wild ride. When Rachel is infected with mystics, she has to find a way to return them to her line and the Goddess before she goes insane. If you think jumping a train is a walk in he park, you would be mistaken. The last resort to rid herself of the mystics is to see if the demons know of a way to get rid of them. Kim Harrison delivers another exciting adventure, and as we get closer to the end of the series I hate to see it end.  I recommend this series and this book. So far this is the best one yet and I give it 5/ 5 stars.

MY NEPHEW RECOMMENDED A NEW AUTHOR AND SERIES.


 AWAKENING (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK1)

BY CATRINA BURGESS

POSSESSION (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK 2)

My Nephew Wendell, who is my oldest nephew, just recently discovered this author on htt://www.wattpad.com and recommended this author  Catrina Burgess to me. He said that her books remind him of Kat Richardson‘s Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1) books. He said that they are just a little bit darker. He cannot wait for book 3, for her writing is awesome. I have it on my list of books to read, now when I will get the time to read it that is a whole new story.

I have joined wattpad so I can see what authors are up and coming and if there are any good books out there. Apparently there is, because my nephew has just about read everything on wattpad. He has been reading 3-5 books a day. When he cannot sleep he will read all night long. I can say he now reads faster than I do now. I can usually read 3-5 books a week, but a day, not gonna happen,  Here lately it is a struggle to just stay awake when I get home from work.  That is the reason I have not posted in a few days. I get home, eat, sit down and get ready to post and before I know it, I am fast asleep. Usually someone has to wake me up to go to bed.

When I go to bed, I think I will read for a bit and before I know it I am rolling over onto my kindle. I have been doing that a lot lately.  I guess my iron is low again, because this happens when it gets low. I am anemic and have to take iron pills daily. Sometimes I forget, and I will have to double up on them.  I am getting off subject. Check out this author Catrina Burgess, I know I will. I guess that will be all for now, and I will talk with you tomorrow.
