REVIEW: Divine Misdemeanors- Laurell K. Hamilton

Divine Misdemeanors 
Merry Gentry Series #8
~Laurell K. Hamilton~
Published: December 8th 2009 by Ballantine Books
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Average Rating: 3.97

SYNOPSIS: You may know me best as Meredith Nic Essus, princess of faerie. Or perhaps as Merry Gentry, Los Angeles private eye. In the fey and mortal realms alike, my life is the stuff of royal intrigue and celebrity drama. Among my own, I have confronted horrendous enemies, endured my noble kin’s treachery and malevolence, and honored my duty to conceive a royal heir—all for the right to claim the throne. But I turned my back on court and crown, choosing exile in the human world—and in the arms of my beloved Frost and Darkness.
While I may have rejected the monarchy, I cannot abandon my people. Someone is killing the fey, which has left the LAPD baffled and my guardsmen and me deeply disturbed. My kind are not easily captured or killed. At least not by mortals. I must get to the bottom of these horrendous murders, even if that means g…

REVIEW: Chill Factor-Rachel Caine

Chill Factor
~Rachel Caine~
Published: Roc (January 4, 2005)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Average Rating: 4.4 on Amazon

SYNOPSIS: Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin has protected the human race from monster storms, been killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. Now she's throwing the dice to stop an infinitely powerful, deeply disturbed kid-who is holed up in a Vegas hotel-from bringing on a new ice age.

MY REVIEW: this book had me so engrossed that I couldn't put it down until I was finished with it. I feel bad for Jo, she goes through so much crap. Poor David, I wonder how they will save him? These books are quite unique in anything I have ever read. I have never quite read any book that involved, people who controlled weather like the wardens do, or basically the fact any books about djinn, mainly when you think of djinn, you think of the evil version of the "genie in the bottle." Ms. Caine has got quite the imagination to pull these books together, to whe…


This is completely random, but that's ok... I like being random...
But this past weekend I had a movie weekend.... I'm going to give my opinions on these movies.... and yes it's out of the ordinary, but hey it's ok.

If you've seen the movie "Clash of the Titans" the newest one with Sam Worthington, then you will know that this one is the sequel to that movie.  It starts off basically with Zeus talking about how the end of the Gods is coming, and that the only savior of the world is Perseus, and that he will soon have to face his destiny.  During this movie Perseus, tries to ignore the will of his Father, and wants to just live out his life with his son, and a poor fisherman. But soon, Ares, and Hades...captured Zeus and left him to be drained by their father the king of the Titans "Cronus".  Afterwards Perseus is thrown into the battle he solely wanted to stay away from.  He meets up with Andromeda, the Queen of Greece. They th…
