PARANORMAL ROMANCE- “RED BLOODED” BY AMANDA CARLSON

PUBLICATION DATE

Jessica is going to Hell.

After settling a fragile truce between the vampires, werewolves and witches, the last thing Jessica wants to do is face the demons head on. But when the Prince of Hell kidnapped her brother, he set into motion a chain of events that even Jessica doesn’t have the power to stop.

Now, Jessica must go into battle again. But Hell is a whole new beast — new rules, more dangerous demons, and an entirely foreign realm. And when Jessica is dropped into the Underworld too soon, without protection or the help of her friends, she must figure out just how powerful she can be… or she will never make it out alive.

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

Jessica is going to Hell, but she is going before she is ready. Jessica has been told to come to Hell to stand trial for crimes against it, but she was told to come by a certain date. While training to defend against demon magic, she absorbs it and activates the circle and pulled to Hell.

The Witches try to control where she lands when she gets there. Everything is strange in Hell. She must get away from the garbage of Hell before she is caught, and find her brother. She is literally running around with no idea of where she is going. She breaks out a woman who is being help prisoner. What she does not know is that she is the one who started all the crap with Hell.  If it was not for her she would not be in this situation. To me RED BLOODED was not as action packed as the others, and had a lot of running around. Don’t get me wrong it was still a very good book with well-developed characters and storyline. I give RED BLOODED 4/ 5 stars.

he's so fine by jill shalvisBOOK DESCRIPTION
For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It’s the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she’s rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she’s ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to “save” him. In fact, he’d like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He’s just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole’s heart, or will it be the end of Olivia’s days in little Lucky Harbor?

URBAN FANTASY – “GENERATION 18” BY KERI ARTHUR

Generation 18 by keri arthur
Book Description
Publication Date: September 30, 2014
COUNTDOWN TO CRISIS

A serial killer strikes every twelve hours. A vampire takes lives at random. At first glance, these tragic incidents seem unrelated. But Special Investigations Unit agents Sam Ryan and Gabriel Stern trace them both back to a military base known as Hopeworth. Is the murder spree part of a cover-up? And are the vampire killings less by chance and more methodical?

The investigation takes an eerie, personal turn when Sam discovers a connection between herself and the victims—and a clue to her own mysterious origins. With the violence escalating and the danger drawing closer to home, the stakes are raised and the mission changes from seeking justice to ensuring Sam and Gabriel’s own survival. And the one person who seems to hold all the answers—about Hopeworth, about Sam’s past—is a mystery man she isn’t sure she can trust. They share a psychic link through her dreams, and he once saved her life, but he may just be the greatest enemy humankind has ever known.

This is a great sequel to MEMORY ZERO. It has a great plot and well-developed characters that work well together to move the story along. When people from Hopeworth start turning up dead, Sam has to find out who is killing them and is she next to be killed? She also talks to a mystery man who tells her when she wants answers to her past she will see them in her dreams and in her heart. He also tells her to look at the pin he gave her if she wishes to find answers.Everything keeps pointing to experiments that produced hybrids named Generation 18 and Penumbra. The military was behind these experiments, and when they had a failure they put them in a home. Is Sam a failure? or success no one knows about? Hopefully these questions and more will be answered in the next book PENUMBRA. I loved this book, with its fast paced action. I give GENERATION 18-    5/ 5 stars. i recommend this series to everyone.

    Book DescriptionMEMORY ZERO BY KERI ARTHUR
    Publication Date: August 26, 2014
    MORTAL RECALL

    For Sam Ryan, life began at age fourteen. She has no memory of her parents or her childhood. In a decade of service with the State Police, Sam has exhausted the resources of the force searching for clues to her identity. But all mention of her family seems to have been deliberately wiped off the record. Everything changes the night Sam’s missing partner resurfaces as a vampire . . . and forces her to kill him in self-defense. Now Sam is charged with murder. Suspended from the force, and with no one left to trust, Sam accepts some unexpected help from Gabriel Stern, a shapeshifter who conceals startling secrets.

    While investigating the circumstances surrounding her partner’s strange behavior, Sam discovers that Garbriel’s been involved with a dangerous organization that’s planning a war on the human race. More immediate, someone is guarding the truth about Sam’s past—someone who’d rather see her dead than risk her knowing too much. To stay alive, Sam must unravel the threads of her past—and find out not only who she is but what she is.

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

    Keri Arthur knows how to weave characters and worlds together to bring to life an Urban Fantasy that will grip you from the very first page. The characters and story line are well-developed. MEMORY ZERO starts off with action from the very first  page, and only gets better as you go to the end of the book. Finding out what happened to her partner gets her into deep trouble. When she gets a message to meet her partner Jack, things go from bad to worse. Somehow has been turned into a Vampire, and when she would not join him she ha to kill him. Now she is being brought up on charges of killing her partner and they want her to undergo a psych evaluation. Now she is on suspension and trying to find out what happened to Jack just got harder.

    When Gabriel of the SIU tells her that the man she killed was not her partner, but a replica makes it hard to believe. Now she has people trying to kill her so she will not find out the truth of what is going on. She also has to find out what is going on with herself, for she is not totally human herself as she believed. This was a great read, keeping me on the edge of my seat. I give it 5/5 stars.
