Trust is a dangerous business.buyamzon-button-plain
Some people still call Kat Redding by her hunter name: Lady Death. But she’s not eager to see more violence brought to her doorstep. The neverending tide of hungry supes and vicious humans doesn’t change the math—sooner or later Kat’s one-vamp battle against the nightmares that infest Columbus is going to leave her dead. And she has innocent people—well, a werewolf and a demon-summoner—depending on her now.But when a rogue werewolf who’s opted out of the bloodbath is found crucified and mutilated with toxic silver, Kat knows she’ll be tangling again with the dangerous Pureblood murderers of the cult of the Left Hand. She already has an undead countess blackmailing her into taking out the city’s garbage and a demon playing with her head. Add to that her serious suspicions about changes at the house of her uneasy ally Jonathan Alucard, werewolf denmaster, and Kat might have finally gotten in danger so deep, not even Lady Death can survive…
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
This is a great book in the series, and the characters and storyline is well-developed. Kat (aka Lady Death) Helps the Luna Cult find the Left Hand and the one who is behind it all. There are new members that have joined the Luna Cult and have seemed to have taken Kat’s place in the Luna Cult by Jonathan’s side. This finally shows Kat that Jonathan means more to her than friend or acquaintance. When other members of the Luna Cult start to act suspicious, Kat tries to rule them out as members of the Left Hand along with the new members that have joined the Luna Cult. When Keira a new member who has been spending more time with Jonathan becomes a suspect also. This book has a lot of action, plot twists and turns that when you think you know who is part of the Left Hand that has infiltrated the Luna Cult, something happens and you have to pick a new suspect. I love it when at the end when Kat is battling the head of the Luna Cult (Gabriel) and he injects her with the syringe with the silver and the concoction that paralyzes her. She lunges at him and he asks “How?” “The silver…” and she replies back “Doesn’t work on me.” and she kills him. That was great, each book gets better and better. So I give Blood From A Silver Cross 5/5 stars.

Along Came Trouble is a sweet, easy read. I loved the characters of Brody and Elisa, they were very well-developed, along with the story line. The character of Brody had to learn how to love completely and to let go of the past. He married young, because his girlfriend was pregnant and he wanted to do the right thing. When things got bad in their marriage and they separated, he cheated on her. Now that he has fallen for Elisa he can’t bring himself to let go that he cheated on his first wife and caused his divorce, even though he was not really in love with her. Elisa is putting herself out there, but she doesn’t want to be hurt again. So she gets to South America to visit her brother and then to South Africa for a photo shoot. This is where Brody finally tracks her down and professes his love for her. I loved reading Along Came Trouble and I give it 5/5 stars.

Book Description

 Publication Date:        August 31, 2010
ACROSS TWO EXTRAORDINARY WORLDS, TRUTH IS THE DEADLIEST MAGIC   Gifted with an uncanny intuition, Lara Jansen nonetheless thinks there is nothing particularly special about her. All that changes when a handsome but mysterious man enters her quiet Boston tailor shop and reveals himself to be a prince of Faerie. What’s more, Dafydd ap Caerwyn claims that Lara is a truthseeker, a person with the rare talent of being able to tell truth from falsehood. Dafydd begs Lara to help solve his brother’s murder, of which Dafydd himself is the only suspect.
Acting against her practical nature, Lara agrees to step through a window into another world. Caught between bitterly opposed Seelie forces and Dafydd’s secrets, which are as perilous as he is irresistible, Lara finds that her abilities are increasing in unexpected and uncontrollable ways. With the fate of two worlds at stake and a malevolent entity wielding the darkest of magic, Lara and Dafydd will risk everything on a love that may be their salvation—or the most treacherous illusion of all.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
I loved the world building in Truthseeker. Also the storyline and character development was well-developed.   This is truly a refreshing story than I normally read. Lara is a tailor and is able to tell if you are telling a lie. When Laura meets Dafydd he tells her he needs her to go back with him to try to clear his name of his brother’s murder. Though he did let loose the arrow that did kill him, he was under a compulsion spell that he could not resist and had to kill his brother. Now he needs her help in finding who had put that spell on him and they will find out who wanted his brother dead. The longer she is in Faerie the more her power grows and the more lies they have to slowly unravel. There is treachery at every corner and they do not know who to trust. This is truly a great start to a new series, and I give it 4/5 stars.

THE REFLECTIONS OF QUEEN SNOW WHITE BY DAVID MEREDITH

THE REFLECTIONS OF SNOW WHITE

Book Description

         Publication Date:         October 2, 2013
What happens when “happily ever after” has come and gone?
On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven’s wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven’s fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White’s own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing:
The king is dead.
The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old.
It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what “happily ever after” really means?
Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
I was given this book for an honest review.
When I first received this book I was kind of Leary of reading it. It is not what I normally read, but from the first page it pulled me in. The characters and the story development was very well done. We actually get a look at Snow White’s life in a way never presented to us before. The story basically starts out with Snow White taking care of court business an d going over details for her daughter Raven’s wedding. It has been a year since Prince Charming has passed away and she is still feeling the pain of his passing. She leaves the court to take some time for herself, and goes up to queen Arglist’s  (the evil step-mother) room and discovers the magic mirror. The mirror shows her the past, and what the queen had done to her when her father had died, the abuse she was given at the hand of the queen. How every time those loyal to Snow White  gave her a kind hand or a crumb o food they were banished for this. It reflects on how she met Prince Charming, and their marriage. How she had to become a strong queen and woman. How in her grief she was not only hurting herself, she was also pushing away the one person who also needed her. Her daughter Raven, she was also grieving for her father. At the end Snow White realizes this, that her daughter also needs her mother. Not only because she has lost her father but because she is about to be married. In this Snow White can impart her knowledge, where as she had no one to show her or teach her about marriage or what to expect from the marriage act. At least now her daughter will have a mother.
I really loved this book , it was written beautifully.  We can actually use this book to reflect on our own life. When we look into the mirror, what do we see? Only we can answer this question. We actually have to look really deep inside ourselves, to truly see the person hidden within. For we actually have buried our true self so deep that we actually don’t know who we are anymore. So maybe we need to reflect into the mirror and see who we are more often, so we don’t lose sight of who we are. I give  The Reflections Of Queen Snow White 5/5 stars, for some of the best writing I have read in a long time. If you have not read it, I recommend that you do so today. You will not be disappointed.
