UNWANTED BY JENNIFER ESTEP


The New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series continues with a new e-novella–from the point of view of Finnegan Lane, the foster brother of Gin Blanco, and a fan favorite of readers of the series.

The fallout from his disastrous “family reunion” in Bitter Bite has left Finn feeling hurt, angry, and depressed. He can barely stand to look at himself in the mirror, much less eat any of the delicious barbecue from Gin’s famed Pork Pit restaurant.

But when the funeral for a slain security guard at his bank turns into a showdown with some nasty underworld giants, Finn knows that he must act in order to protect an innocent family.

Finnegan Lane might be the most unwanted man in Ashland these days, but he’s determined to try to make amends for his past mistakes…

Unwanted (Elemental Assassin) is a novella starting up right after BITTER BITE. It focuses on Finn and what he is going through in the aftermath of his Mother trying to rob the bank he works for. His co-workers are shunning, and blaming him for the deaths of the security guards that were killed during the robbery. When he finds out that the wife of one of the slain guards needs help, he  puts his special skills to work. I love Finn and when I saw the way his co-workers treat him the way they did, I just wanted to give him a big hug. I love THE ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN SERIES and cannot wait for the next book in the series. I give UNWANTED 5/5 stars.

REVIEW- BRIGHT BLAZE OF MAGIC BY JENNIFER ESTEP


“The characters are as fantastic as Estep fans have come to expect.” – RT Book Reviews

Bad Things Always Come In Threes…

As a thief, I’m good at three things: hiding in the shadows, getting in and out unseen, and uncovering secrets. I put these skills to work for the Sinclair Family, one of the magical mobs that run the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls.

Everyone knows Victor Draconi wants to take over all the other Families–and kill every last Sinclair. What they don’t know is that I’m on to him, and no way will I let the man who murdered my mom get away with hurting all the other people I care about. Especially when I’ve got places to break into, stuff to steal, and Devon Sinclair fighting right by my side…

“An adventurous ride you will never want to get off.” –#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout on Cold Burn of Magic

Bright Blaze of Magic (Black Blade) is the third book in this series.  I love Jennifer Estep’s writing! The characters and the story line are well-developed. It pulls you into the story and does not let you go until you are done. Victor Draconi is intent on taking over the town of Cloudburst Falls and getting rid of the other families.  Lila and the Sinclair family are on pins and needles awaiting for the Draconi family to strike again. Lila wants to pay back the one who killed her mother. Also, the Author mentions the Pork Pit, from her Elemental Assassins Series.  This is such an awesome series, and I recommended it to everyone. I give Bright Blaze of Magic (Black Blade) 5/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW- HUNTED BY DARKNESS BY KATIE REUS

hunted by darkness cover
From two different worlds…

Now that she’s escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends—even if most of her friends don’t know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she’s just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she’s not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.

He’s not letting her go…

Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn’t know why. When they’re thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

Darkness Series, #4
Author note: Hunted by Darkness can be read as a stand-alone novel.

HUNTED BY DARKNESS  is a great installment in the DARKNESS SERIES.  The characters and story line are well-developed. I love Nyx and Bo!! Nyx has been living with Bo for a while, and Bo wants her for more than a roommate. He wants her for his mate. He doesn’t think he is right for her. Nyx is a Demigod, and when her Mother asks her to do a favor for her, she agrees to do it. She must deliver a package to a grave site at the cemetery, but instead it opens a portal and sucks Bo and her thru. They are thrown into a Hell realm. Now, they must find a way out. During their time in this realm, secrets are reveled.  I love reading Katie Reus. Her writing and her worlds have so much character and depth. If you have not read this book and series, I urge you to read it.  I loved HUNTED BY DARKNESS AND I GIVE IT 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW – OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS BY KRISTI CHARISH


The wild second adventure for unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish. For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like.

Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new contract job for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on some treasures of the mysterious Syrian City of the Dead that are sitting in a recluse’s private collection.

There’s just one wrinkle. To stop the resurrection of an undead army that could wreak havoc on Los Angeles, Owl must break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight in one of the most volatile regions in the world. A detour through Libya and a run-in with Somali pirates sends the clock ticking hastily toward total paranormal disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking Owl’s apartment, but they have by no means forgotten their death grudge against her. To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that there is nothing heavenly about the City of Angels..

OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS just gets better, and better. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Owl is in trouble again. The IAA is after her for stealing several artifacts, but there is one catch, she did not do it. Yes, she stole a few, but not the ones they are accusing her for. She escapes Egypt and is determined to find who is out there stealing artifact in her name. After careful research they trace it back to the city of the dead. Someone is stealing cursed artifacts and selling them. Now, Owl must return those artifacts. During one of her retrievals, she accidentally touches one of the artifacts and is cursed. Now the clock is ticking and she must find a way to lift the curse or die. Oh, and she has to stop the people stealing the artifacts also. I love this series!! It is like Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider all in one. I also love her cat Captain, he steals the show. If you have not picked up the first book in this series, I really urge you to do so. You will love it. I give OWL AND THE CITY OF ANGELS 5/5 STARS.

UNBLOCKED (EPISODE FIVE) is the thrilling conclusion of this great series. Marni Mann is a master storyteller! Frankie and Derek’s relationship is getting hotter and hotter. I love these two characters and the chemistry between the two. Secrets will be revealed and the past will be put to rest. Derek thinking that his past will tear him and Frankie apart, only makes their relationship stronger. If you have not started this series, I urge you to do so. The characters and the story line is well-developed and a romantic masterpiece. I hate to see the series end, but I know that Marni Mann will have something great in store for us next. You will enjoy this book like I did, and pick it up as soon as it is released. I give UNBLOCKED (EPISODE FIVE) 5/5 STARS.
