*~Synopsis~*
Mikhail Faustin is the prince of New York. His authority is absolute, his power unquestioned—and his heart is empty. The pain he carries inside leaves him with nothing to offer a mate. When he discovers that Alya Adad is not only his destined bride but also the source of his misery, his fate is sealed. He must claim the woman he despises most. Or die trying.

Alya Adad is the most powerful of her kind born in generations and a prince in her own right. She’s accountable to no man, certainly not to her first lover, Mikhail. Now he has the gall to not only invade her territory, but threaten to take her by force—for a prophecy she doesn’t believe in? She’ll kill him first.

Their battle for the upper hand is no-holds-barred…until she discovers the one thing his pride didn’t want her to know. That she still holds the key to his heart—and his innermost desires. And when a rival vampire clan strikes, letting her guard down is the only way to save him.

*~My Review~*
Ok the 2nd book was my favorite out of this trilogy, this one was good but it was just a little off for me though I did like the whole BDSM spectrum of this book. It was definitely a quick read just like the other two books were. Easy to get into, and easy to finish. It just didn't leave me hanging wanting more like most books do. But it definitely cracked me up with the book ending with them, going down to the lake to skip rocks. Really? lol.


*~REVIEW~* Frost Burned- Patricia Briggs

Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson, #7)

*~FROST BURNED~*
~Patricia Briggs~
Series: Mercedes Thompson #7
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Published: March 5th 2013 by Ace
Average Rating: 4.32







*~Synopsis~*
Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

*~My Review~*
This book reminded me more of the earlier books in the series. It was a very nice read, very easy to follow along with the story, and it seems that Mercy is gaining, or learning more about her abilities, which in my opinion makes her fit more into the supernatural world that she claims she's on the outside of. I'm highly intrigued to read the next book, so see what's up in Mercy Thompson next adventure.

*REVIEW* The Lost Prince- Julie Kagawa

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #1)


*~The Lost Prince~*
~Julie Kagawa~
Series: The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1
Genre: Young Adult
Publication: October 23rd 2012 by Harlequin Teen
Average Rating: 4.13






*~Synopsis~*
Don’t look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.

That is Ethan Chase’s unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he’d dare to fall for.

Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister’s world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

*~My Review~*
Julie Kagawa, has done it again with her creative writing style and her worlds within worlds. The lost prince basically just picks up right where the iron fey series drops off give or take a few years. you also get to see our favorite trio from time to time as well, which just makes it all the more a great read especially with ash being a father (sorry to spoil this for those who haven't read "The Iron Prophecy"). after reading "The Iron Prophecy", I'm highly intrigued on how Ethan and Keirrans relationship will unfold in this series. I'm also intrigued about Ethan and McKenzie, I wonder if there is going to be heartache or not with them. I'd tell you the reason why I wonder this but would be spoiling a key point into the book. it's a high recommendation from me, and I won't have to convince Iron Fey fans to read this because I am sure they've already sunk their teeth on and devoured it.

*REVIEW* Iron's Prophecy- Julie Kagawa

Iron's Prophecy (The Iron Fey, #4.5)

*~Iron's Prophecy~*
~Julie Kagawa~
Series: Iron Fey # 4.5
Genre: Young Adult
Published: September 1st 2012 by Harlequin TEEN
Average Rating: 4.25




*~Synopsis~*
Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.” Now Meghan faces a devastating choice that may determine the future of all fey—and her and Ash’s unborn child…

*~My Review~*
It's great that we got one last story from the Iron Fey series. Though I still want to cry and i'm all sad because it's completed. This book however I think though I cannot be quite sure yet until I've read it, but ties into the story of Ethan, somehow. I cannot wait to start reading Ethan's stories and see where Ms. Kagawa leads us in our new adventure.

*~What I Loved about this Book~*
I loved it that we got to see one more adventure from our favorite trio. I wish there was more, but I'm very pleased that we have the spin off series that still ties us to them. I wish these would turn into movie's these would be totally epic movies with the way computer graphics has progressed over the years.  Ms; Kagawa's writing never seems to fail me and keeps me intrigued until the very end and more.

*~What I didn't like about this book~*
Nothing, there was nothing I didn't like about this book. Except for the fact that it's over with that's about it.
