REVIEW – HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE BY JEANIENE FROST

halfway to the grave
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother’s life. Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE is a great start to a series. Catherine “Cat” Crawfield is half vampire, half human. When her mother was younger, she was raped by a “new” vampire. One who was bitten within 2 weeks. Out of this rape Cat was conceived, and born five months later. Now she is killing vampires to make up for who she is. Her mother told her that all vampires are evil and must die. When she meets Bones one night, she finds out not all of them are evil. Now she is saved by Bones one night when a vampire gets the upper hand, after someone drugs her drink. They join forces and go after the baddest of the bad vampires, and life is never dull. Bones and Cat grow closer together and her relationship to her mom is on shaky ground. I loved this book! The characters and story line were very well-developed. I recommend this book to everyone, and I give HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE 5/5 STARS.

PARANORMAL ROMANCE BOOK REVIEW- BLOOD WOLF DAWNING BY RHYANNON BYRD

BLOOD WOLF DAWNING
Book Description
Publication Date: January 1, 2015
If this was what falling for someone did to a person—what craving them felt like—then Sayre Murphy wanted no part of it…

Ever. She might be young and inexperienced, but she was a woman. And she had finally had enough! Cian Hennessey might be the most magnificent, infuriating, arrogant male she had ever known. But the tall Bloodrunner treated her as if she were nothing more than a child, making it painfully clear that despite whatever connection they shared, he’d never see her as an adult female. After disappearing from her life for five years, the werewolf was back, claiming that she was in serious danger and must drop everything to go with him immediately.

Cian was as deadly as he was beautiful. But the young witch knew he would never cause her physical harm. The safety of her heart, however, was a different matter…

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

BLOOD WOLF DAWNING has a rich, well-balanced story line, with characters are well-developed and very likable.  When Sayre  was younger she always wanted Cian, but when she found out that they were life mates she basically told him that if he didn’t want to claim her she would find someone to sleep with. That night Cian left town for 5 years. Now he is back and he is trying to protect Sayre from his evil brother. When Cian left it shattered Sayre’s world. Her powers became unpredictable that she could not be around anyone. Now Cian is back and her powers seem to be quieting down. She has to guard her heart  before he breaks it again. Cian will come clean on why he left 5 years ago, and reveal his secret and risk losing her forever. I really liked BLOOD WOLF DAWNING and give it 5/5 stars.

URBAN FANTASY-REVIEW AUDIBLE VERSION “CLEAN SWEEP” BY ILONA ANDREWS

clean sweep ilona andrews audible edition cover
Book Description
Publication Date: December 2, 2013
This is a short novel, about 60,000 words.

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, “normal” is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night….Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

“Andrews is an auto-buy no matter what the genre!” —Romantic Times

“If there is one author that defines Urban Fantasy, it is Ilona Andrews.” —Annie Tegelan, Fresh Fiction

“One of the brightest voices in urban fantasy and one of my favorite authors. Ilona Andrews delivers only the best.” —New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost

I decided to try the audible version of CLEAN SWEEP because I had just bought a Bluetooth headset for my phone. I would listen to this on my way to work, home man’s walking into work to clock in. Listening to Renee Raudman read this book brought the characters alive. Ilona Andrews brought this world alive, and the characters were well-developed. The storyline was awesome. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Dina Demille is an Inn Keeper. She runs the Inn for the supernatural, and when people and animals come up murdered, she knows that she has to find out who is doing it. I also love the verbal exchange by Dina and Sean Evans is really funny. There was one part where Sean kisses Dina, that had me laughing. Here is a quote from the book.

“Kissing Sean Evans was like drinking a shot of the strongest liquor in the world while it was on fire.”

If you have not read it I urge you to do so. I give CLEAN SWEEP 5/ 5 stars.
