Review of (Dis)Content by Melissa Haag

25831228

 

I hate. I thought I hated before the letter, before the werewolves, but now I understand that was nothing more than a chip on my shoulder. The urbat took what was mine. They will pay.

Isabelle leads a very normal life…for an emotional syphon. If not for Ethan and his bar, she would have lost her sanity long ago. But everything changes with the crash of her fighting cage and a man who transforms into a wolf. There’s something about Carlos—when he’s not growling at her—that makes her do things she wouldn’t normally do, like sigh and daydream.

Attraction aside, she is faced with the very real evidence that werewolves and urbat exist, and the urbat are after her. And the only way she can keep Ethan safe is to join with the werewolves and Carlos. It’s a race against time to stop a war, fight for love, and find the last Judgement.

Review for (Dis)content

Star Rating: 5 stars

This is the fifth instalment of the judgement of six. Each book is as outstanding as the other. I have read all five and they haven’t disappointed. I just love this author. Melissa has a true gift of crafting strong female characters; there is no damsel in distress in the Judgement of six books. They may not all be fighters but they are strong willed women, shaped from the harsh life’s they have been given.

 

Isabelle is definitely the strongest as in she can kick some serious butt. I love her fight against Carlos it had me giggling the whole way through the book, she gave us the perfect balance of resistance and giving in at times where I just needed her to show Carlos affection.

 

Now moving onto Carlos, I love the silent type, the ones we can’t read, but when Carlos lets his guard down wow does it blow us away. But once again as I have said through each five books there is no-one like Clay he is my everything, the other guys are amazing but Clay just takes the silent type to a whole new level.

 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves werewolves, paranormal stories, strong female leads, and overprotective men.

 

Review of Omens by Author Kelley Armstrong

16101040

 

Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.

But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.

Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

7581

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. All efforts to make her produce “normal” stories failed.

Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She’s the author of the NYT-bestselling “Women of the Otherworld” paranormal suspense series and “Darkest Powers” young adult urban fantasy trilogy, as well as the Nadia Stafford crime series. Armstrong lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.

Olivia Taylor lives the high life, her world is of wealth, charity events (for the rich) and she’s engaged to James. But when she finds out she’s the daughter of the serial killers “The Larsen’s” her world is shattered. She fleas to Cainsville where strange doesn’t even begin to describe it. It’s there that we meet Gabriel. Gabriel is a lawyer who helps Olivia look into her real parents so called crimes.

I loved the superstition in omens. I found myself at night placing my pillows inwards, watching cats to see if rain was coming or birds to indicate towards the future. I loved all the aspects that Kelly Armstrong came from.

 

Secondly I just adored Gabriel he was selfish, arrogant yet his demons are bigger then I first thought and I feel in the second book we will find out things about Gabriel that will be hard to swallow. But I still love him as a character. Olivia and Gabriel’s relationship was strained at most parts, but it was the smallest gesture or the way he looked at her that had my heart rate in overdrive.

 

I loved omens and can’t wait for the second book. I would highly recommend this to all paranormal readers.

 

Review of Touch By Author Melissa Haag

17292403

 

 

Librarian’s Note: Original cover edition for ASIN# B00AXSOFFA

A touch. That’s all it takes for Tessa to know her future with a boy. Her mom tells her she needs to choose her best option before she turns seventeen. Problem is, she sees all her ‘options’ dying before they turn thirty. That may have worked for the last fourteen generations of women in her family tree, but she can’t choose and condemn someone to an early grave.

An unfortunate incident at school starts a chain of events that reveals a centuries old chaos demon and a chance to remove her ‘gift’ forever

Review of Touch

 

Star Rating: 5 stars

 

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

First off I am a huge fan of Melissa Haag’s work, my number one book being Hope(less). In all my reviews Clay is always my number one man that is until I met Morik. (I’m Sorry Clay) but Morik is so so different.

 

Tessa is cursed any boy she touches she can see her future with them, she can see her children, her life. Sounds great except all the men die young.

 

A curse passed down to each generation, a curse that kills if you don’t pick your man by the age of seventeen.

 

The idea behind the book was amazing and it sucked me in from the start and then Morik arrives and my knees went weak. HIS EYES, HIS EYES, HIS EYES just fascinated me and his words, actions, patience and kindness had me falling for him far  quicker than Tessa, but she has her reasons. As a character she was equally amazing for her strength and compassion, and her and Moriks story was beautiful.

 

There was one character that I wanted to smack, I just couldn’t understand Tessa’s selfish mother she grated on my nerves a lot. But we had Tessa’s grandmother to replace the mother role.

 

Overall I adored this book and would highly recommend it.

Monday’s Review of Obsidian By Author Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

12578077

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens. 

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Review of Obsidian

Rating: 5 stars

 

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

Before I even start with my review I just have to say that I loved this book it was just awesome, I laughed so much through it, that my jaws where sore.

 

Katy is a nerd, no other way to word it, she loves books her blog and they seem to be her life, until her mother ships her West Virginia. Her father had died from cancer and her mother felt they needed to start over.

 

Katy is a serious blusher and when she meets the neighbours next door, the fun starts. Daemon is drop dead gorgeous with a fit body and a sculptured face, but his mouth is another story. Katy lands on his door step unable to speak as she takes in his half naked body, but Daemon soon makes her close it by saying something sarcastic and sharp and so their relationship begins with this tone. It’s so funny I just loved the sarcasm and insults that seemed to flow so naturally between these two and then we meet Dee, Daemon’s sister, she a slice of sunshine.

 

Starting off senior year in a new school is hard enough but having Daemon in her Trig class just makes it so much harder. You can see from the start that something is very off about Dee and Daemon and we soon discover that they are aliens from another planet and they are entirely made from light. It’s actually really cool and something I myself found to be new and refreshing.

 

As the story rolls on so those danger and Katy soon finds herself been drawn into another world that she didn’t even know existed. The romance in this story was what did it for me, and I nearly cried when it ended wanted book two like now.

 

Overall a great read and one that I would highly recommend.

 

 

 

 

Monday’s Review for (Un)wise by Author Melissa Haag

Blurb:

The dreams start and Bethi’s very normal life goes down the toilet. Reliving past lives, where Dog-men chase her and she sees her eventual tormented death, Bethi sets out to find a way to live this time around. The dreams hint at an answer. She needs to be strong enough to find it, or die…

The third installment of the Judgement of the Six answers questions, questions answers, and risks the fate of the world.

Review of (Un)wise

Rating: 5 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

Bethi is my favourite female Character in the judgement of six. That’s so far as this is the third instalment. So far I have meet Gabby and Michelle but Bethi got my full attention she was strong, sarcastic and fearless yet small, fragile and damaged a crazy combination but it worked so well and I just loved her.

 

Luke her love interest well he is just like Emmitt and Clay protective, loyal, possessive and loving (Clay is still my favourite male) but Luke seems to be a bit more respectful as far as doing anything with Bethi. It’s kind of sweet but Bethi doesn’t think so and it’s funny to watch Luke reject her again and again and again.

In (un)wise we finally find out why these women have gifts, what they are meant to do, how many there are. We find out so much that I was like “Of course, that makes sense”. It’s a satisfying answer, and through Bethi it’s all explained very well.

 

This book was by far my favourite (Clay still takes first place as the most amazing male character like ever) just needed to clear that up. Anyway I would highly recommend this book to all Romance, Paranormal and fantasy readers out there. This is book three so I can’t wait for Book four. But the first three got all five star ratings from me; it’s an awesome series one you have to read.

 

Monday’s Review ~ (Mis)fortune By Author Melissa Haag

17844601

Blurb:

Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?(

Review of (Mis)fortune

 

Rating: 5 stars

 

www.reviewoffantasy.com

 

(Mis)fortune is all based around a young women called Michelle who has been kept as a prisoner by Blake, a were-wolf (Well kind of). To keep her a prisoner he threatens her with her two younger brothers Aden and Liam, they are only four and five.

Blake makes Michelle sit through a meal once a month, where he brings his friends. Michelle keeps her head down but being annoyed by a guy across from her she kicks him, getting the unwanted attention of Blake. His anger shows his true nature and Michelle watches as Blake’s teeth lengthen and sharpen, Michelle’s fear and confusion is very believable.  Shortly after Michelle’s step dad is murdered and she escapes the clutches of Blake taking her to brothers with her.

So Michelle fleas and soon meets Emmitt, a man willing not only to protect her from Blake’s men, but to help her and her brothers. Emmitt takes Michelle to his own home where we meet Jim and Nana Wini. Michelle keeps the truth about why Blake is after her and her gift hidden. But Emmitt has his own secrets also.

 

In (Mis)fortune,  so much of the plot comes together. The first book was about Gabby I just loved it, but this book which is the second instalment gives us a few more answers as to try and understand who these women are. We get more answers when Emmitt takes Michelle to the compound and we meet his mother, who seems to have gift of her own.

 

Michelle’s fear through the story never lets go and I couldn’t help but feel so sorry for her, as she suffered at the hands of Blake for four years her love for her two brothers was her Achilles heel in Blake’s eyes. The relationship that blossoms between the boys and Jim and Emmitt was lovely. Jim was a real character I just loved him and his ability to piss Emmitt off was priceless.

 

The love story between Michelle and Emmitt is very slow paced but yet it always held my interest. But no-one can beat Clay from book one, he was something else.

 

Anyway I would highly recommend this book to all romance, paranormal and fantasy readers.

I’m off to read Part three (Un)wise.

Review of Brightest Kind of Darkness

Rating: 5 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

The story is told through the eyes of Nara and she has such a cool gift. Every night she dreams the events of the following day, knowing exactly what will happen this helps her in school and her social life, when to avoid sticky situations and what answers she needs for exams but she gets sick of predicting everything. 

 

Her dream shows her a bombing that will happen at her school so when she wakes up she reports it and in the process stops it from happening, she normally doesn’t interfere but this time she does and in doing so starts a chain reaction of accidents happening in her local school.

 

After the bombing situation Nara meets Ethan a loner who she falls very quickly for, but once she starts hanging out with him her dreams seem to stop. At first she’s okay with that but then her world starts falling apart around her as she feels blind. (Welcome to our world).

 

As the story picks up we learn about whom Ethan really is and what happened to Nara’s gifts, and soon she finds herself at war with fate itself. The story leaves you not sure who to trust and Ethan was on the top of my list of – bad guy acting good. But I was wrong and the love story between Ethan and Nara is so beautiful. The darkness in the book gets stronger as the story progress and I felt like I was looking over my shoulder when weird stuff started to happen to Nara. Invisible hands pushing her, fog on a mirror, a coldness growing around her, or words being whispered in her ear. The end was a very satisfying conclusion to the story.

 

I would highly recommend this book to fantasy and paranormal readers.
