After reading Bloodlust, this book seemed rather mundane. I wasn’t wowed by Childs’ prose, but I do admit there weren’t really many spots in this book that I got bored. This book was simple and mindless with not much thought required…but sometimes it’s nice for a quick and easy read. I really like the thought behind the story in this one…triplets separated at birth (with mythological powers) stumble upon each other unexpectedly…kind of like Parent Trap with a twist.  I […]

Man, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read…from shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming “oh shit!” out loud).    Declan’s mood swings (caused […]

I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I laid eyes on it, so I had pretty high expectations. And thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. It certainly wasn’t a slow start (which appealed to me, because I get bored easily), with Jill getting stabbed with a syringe and injected with Nightshade, vampire poison. I loved the development between Jill and and her kidnapper, Dec…the way it turns into Stockholm Syndrome also appeals to me because I really like romances […]

This is hands down my favorite series. The entire saga is just incredibly written with so many twists and turns and dark secrets. I love the world that Karen paints with brilliant and masterful words! I just read this one again so I am writing this review now. When I finish my library books, I’ll start back up with the re-reading the rest of the series and review those too. Reading this for the second time was almost as thrilling […]

Not gonna lie, this book was pretty boring. It was extremely slow and didn’t seem to have much of a plot. It was a lot of Toby running around and getting hurt. She was constantly almost dying, it was a little annoying really. It’s been a month or two since I read it and I already forget most of the book. I did enjoy several of the characters, one was a young, headstrong girl (I don’t even remember her name…sad, […]

I. Love. This. Series. Each and every book is amazing in its own right, and someday I’ll write a review for each. But as for this book, it was an incredible end to a great saga.   Ash goes through so much and overcomes so many trials in the Iron Knight just for the hope to be with Meghan. He puts it all on the line for love, and I adore him for it. It was really interesting to see […]
