Review: Acts of Mercy

Acts of Mercy Acts of Mercy by Ciara Graves
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Got this book free on Amazon. I'm glad I decided to read new books to me this month because I've come up with some really good reads. This one is definitely on top.

This book is about a bounty hunter named Mercy, she gets a bounty that is going to pay a high amount, well she comes across a demon named Raphael. And an interesting pairing comes to light.

What I love about this book, is that it's super easy to get into, and honestly, I did not want to put it down, two the heroine and main male didn't instantly get into the sack. They're building up into something, what it will become will be fun to read. But the best part is that they both have some kind of history that they tend to keep on the back burner, and I love how you find little details here and there.

I cannot wait to read the next in the series.

Review: Allied Mage

Allied Mage Allied Mage by Janelle Peel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received this book from the author herself. I must say this series is really shaping up to be an extremely good series. I liked how though the story is still basically set on Sora the dhampire mage. But yet it gives us more on other characters such as. viv and Jackson though their part was slightly lackluster, they could’ve played coy a little longer for my liking. But neither here nor there, continuing on we met Natalie a young mage from the LA clutch.

This brings another side of the story, won’t go into details much on here because if do it would bring spoilers. And I’m not about spoilers. But along with Natalie we’re also introduced to a five year old shifter pup named Bex, cutest thing ever!!

So not only do you have Sora bringing all factions together vampires, shifters, the human ilk of the clutch. You also get to have more revealed on the mages side as well.

The best part of this book is that it’s easy to get into and easy to read. And you get different characters POVs. You also get to know the nitty gritty of how one feels while they’re going through the motions of things. Makes it more livid in the imagination when you’re reading these.

Review: The Accidental Demon Slayer

The Accidental Demon Slayer The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Got this book free from Amazon....
Before reading this book, I read the reviews. Some of them were on the positive side, but there was a lot that was on the negative side. And so with that, I was a little hesitant on reading this book. But I did, and yes there was some parts that I groaned and was like omg this character is going to be yuck, and needs to grow some figurative balls. Talking about the main character Lizzie. Who is very self preserved and very uptight, she said words like H-E- double hockey sticks. Of course, I rolled my eyes on this, because not even the prissiest person talks like this.

However, even with the cutsie wootsie talk, which gets less annoying the longer your read. I got pretty hooked into this story. Overall, the book was really good. And to hear that it started one night on an envelope while taking care of a fussy infant. Just goes to show that inspiration can strike at anytime.

I definitely will be continuing this series, because not only has Lizzie grown on me, Dimitri entices me, and the red skulls they are a hoot.... also Pirate the dog... can forget that.

Review: Vampire Mage

Vampire Mage Vampire Mage by Janelle Peel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got this book free from Amazon.com, I'm glad I did!!

OMG! this book, this book. This is the first of the Clutch Mistress Series by Janelle Peel. The moment I started this book, I could not stop reading. And honestly I'm very sad at the moment that it's over and I have to wait until payday to get the next or even the rest of what's currently out in the series.

It's been a long time since a book caught my fancy so quickly and so deeply. I'm just in awe.
The story is completely amazing!
The writing flawless, I also like the way the POV's were setup.
The characters amazingly done, very detailed, and nothing was rushed. Everything flowed so smoothly that it made the story just so vivid in my imagination.

Sora her character being the lead female character, the author didn't make her mild or meek...mostly. She is fierce she is loud and proud. And the author didn't make her be the type of character I usually will roll my eyes on a few times. She is well balanced.
Blaze the author didn't make him too macho, but macho enough to get that rawr factor going.

However, currently my faves are Viv & Jackson, their dynamic is highly entertaining, and I can't wait to read more about them. Viv, is so sarcastic and saucy and Jackson is so um almost serious it's going to be super entertaining to read more about them.

But if you are looking for a new series to sink your teeth or claws into, then this book is a must!!!

Review: The Queen's Mark

The Queen's Mark The Queen's Mark by Tori Smith
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I got this book for free from Amazon. It sat in my library for not a long period of time actually. The reason I decided to read this book now, is because it's part of a book challenge i'm doing.

So reading the synopsis, it sounds like it's going to be a steamy reverse harem- urban fantasy. Ehhh it has the potential for sure. It definitely has potential, that's why I am going to read the second book in the future to see if things calm down, and go more at an even pace.

But for me it was a huge let down. It felt very rushed, there was no build. One minute she's striving for her independence in life, the next weary of these four men, to going as far as saying you love them. There was nothing sexual, which was a plus because then it would've really felt rushed.

There was inconsistencies in the book, how on moment she was talking about her olive skin, then the next one of the guys was saying it was bronze. Mild grammatical errors. I'm hoping it was just a first book blooper thing and the rest of the books get better.... here's hoping

Review: Hunted

Hunted Hunted by Kevin Hearne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well number 6 of the Iron Druid Chronicles series Kevin Hearne. This is definitely a step up from Trapped. Hunted took you on a whole new level of adventures, with so much going on you'd think it would be hard to keep up however it flowed quite smoothly.

However, the first time the POV change it did confuse me for a sentence or two, but then it became the norm for the book though there weren't too many.

This book though will definitely get you the feelers, I mean you grow with each character in a book, and when something happens, you feel that as well.

But alas, there are happy times in this book too, as well as the glorious laughs you get with these books, the quips are just downright hilarious.

I'm quite interested on what's going to happen in the next book, and this one leaves you with a "Oh Snap!" at the end. OH SNAP!

Review: Trapped

Trapped Trapped by Kevin Hearne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So it definitely took a minute to finish this book. Stupid work, stupid holidays. Any-who finally finished. It was a good book in the long run, however there seemed to be more filler area's and long winded explanation, that at times I found myself struggling to keep up. But maybe that's because I am a more of the get to the point, than drag on with a backstory. Even though when i'm telling a story I have to have that backstory, lol. I'm complicated. One thing I did enjoy with this book, was well... I can't tell you, because it's no fun to find out something juicy about a book, from someone other than yourself reading it.

So on that note, you wanna know, pick up the book and read it.

You'll get to see more Norse Gods, and other creatures, and and interesting end that I'm pretty excited to find out more about. And of course Oberon, is amazing as usual, I'm always busting up laughing at things he says, which makes it even funnier when I do it while working, and everything is in a quiet period.

Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles are definitely a must read, especially if you dig mythology, witty characters, and lots of laughs.
