Darkness Falls (Darkness Falls #1) ~ Jessica Sorensen

Follow Kayla as she learns there is more to her life than simply being a Bellator. There is a bit to tell, but to do so would give far too many "spoilers" ... so will have to say, this book is worth the read.
Know there are Highers, who seem to be complete dicks. Vamps, who are just out for blood. Then the rest of the Colony ... and those are separated into several groups. Bellators being one group ... and you will just have to read to find out more :)

 

Demonglass (Hex Hall #2) ~ Rachel Hawkins

I have learned to dislike jumping into a series without reading the 1st book. But on this one, Demonglass gave enough info so I didn't have to go back to read the 1st one. Although I want to read the beginning, it was nice to get some of the additional info.
This book is worth the read, but I would suggest you read Hex Hall first ... otherwise when you jump back to read it, you will prob lose some of the interest ... LOL or something like that.
Now I have to hunt down Hex Hall (I hope the library has it). But off to read SpellBound, since I have it on hand :)

 

Cold Touch (Extrasensory Agents #2) ~ Leslie Parrish

this was an enjoyable mystery and romance. Mix in physic abilities with a straight nose detective, makes it a good read. The woman was kidnapped as a teen, and then murdered, but survived do to help of the young kid the kidnapper had ... but from there you will find several murders, kidnappings that after the ransom who were murdered by a twisted individual.
Set in Georgia, Ms. Leslie Parrish gives you details of what it is like to be the southern individual, as well as a great view on the area & weather. LOL after all Georgia can be rather hot & humid in Aug.

 

Afterlife (the Resurrection Chronicles #1) ~ Merrie Destafano

Resurrection Chronicles ... coming back after you have died, into a new body. Having to tackle all the lives you have lead to become a part of society. This one takes a professional Babysitter to the recently deceased and a Newbie name Anjelique into a mystery that pulls them together, as well as shows that sometimes family members can tear a family apart. Especially, when you see how they work at convincing their family they are decent individuals.

Lets just say you put in twisted individuals, resurrection, murder ... it makes a good mystery. But keep in mind there is a slight romance involved, hey it gives you a bit of everything!

 

Daemon’s Mark (Nocturne City #5) ~ Caitlin Kittredge

Honestly I really enjoy this series. But I skipped a book, which I really need to read. This is on of those that it's best to read in order. You can skip around, Ms. Kittredge is great at giving back up info from other books, but this is just one of those series that is better to read in order.
Would love to see a LT werewolf in charge of a police force. She battles control of keeping her wolf in check, but sometimes the wolf just has to have her say. In this book, there is a bit of trying to keep the wolf in check. Along with interesting twists.
After all, what happens when you have a woman who is of a witch descant who got a werewolf bite.

Black Magic Sanction (The Hallows #8) ~ Kim Harrison

Rachel Morgan is at it again, running into a situation that could kill her or those she loves.
Currently, Rachel is Al’s student. (for those who have NOT read the past books, Al is a demon. The cure Rachel received from Trent’s father, made it possible for her to use demon magic. Any other info, you will just have to read the books) The “Coven” happens to be the group after Rachel this time. They have shunned her because of the “black magic” she has done, plus they were told that she can do demon magic.
Brook and Victoria, let’s just say that “good witches” aren’t really all they claim to be. One will abuse her power to become more powerful, and the other will abuse it to “catch” Rachel. These two “ladies” are members of the Coven.
Rachel has Peirce babysitting her because of a major mess up during her training with Al. Newt (another demon) has demanded it, or for Al to release Rachel as his student so Newt can teach her. (Newt is one crazy demon.)
But in the end, it’s all on Rachel, Ivy & Jenks to survive the issue of the Coven going after Rachel. They plan to sterilize Rachel to end her bloodline, or much worse. Wickedly evil people who claim to be so “good.”
The one question is “Who provided the info to the Coven?” Trent, Nick, Lee … or does Al have his greedy little hands in this?

Sorry but if I do keep writing about this book, I will give up more than I think should be shared. You will just have to READ this great book to find out what all is going on, and who caused it.
Also, sorry if I didn’t stay on track for my review … But I did give you several reason to read the book :)

 

Waking the Witch (Women of the Otherworld #11) ~ Kelley Armstrong

I love this series. And let me tell you Savannah Levine, makes this one spark with magic, PI investigate footwork, understanding to the child of a murdered woman, plus she doesn't take the BS from the idiot bullies in the story.
It ends with a start to the next novel about Savannah. I am hoping that this one provides more info about her, as all Ms. Armstrong's books do.

 

Annie’s Child ~ Elda Minger

I truly enjoyed this book. It's nice to read a story where morals are used. Yes, it's like a fairytale. A girl from the wrong side of the tracks, finds her prince charming. But in this case, it's how these two main characters grow. How they become the couple the should be.
When you read how the story ends, you will understand. Because, even in this time frame, sometimes we just need to read more about "doing the right thing."

Gifts in Jars: Recipes for Easy, Delicious, Inexpensive DIY Gifts in Jars ~ Margaret Lowe

I enjoyed all the ideas. Some I tried, others I might try in the future. Ms. Lowe, also, provided ideas for decorating the jars.
The part I like the most, is these are easy enough my 4 yr old granddaughter can help with. She loves making things for people, but so many items are above her age level. These are simple enough, with help from an adult (or teen), she was able to help.

Written in Red (The Others #1) ~ Anne Bishop

Meg Corbyn, a cassandra sangue (blood prophet), is on the run for her very life. She finds a place that will accept her with the Others (shape-shifters). Getting hired as the Human Liaison, who accepts all incoming mail. Meg is taught how humans live, by her new friends.

Meeting friends from all walks of life. Meg becomes part of the Lakeside Courtyard. She is befriended by many Others & the Elementals. When it comes out who Meg is & why she is running, it becomes a battle between some of the humans & the Others.

There is a lot to add, but doing so could destroy the read. Ms. Bishop created an amazing world where humans are the feared ones (for a change), where humans actually see them place “on the totem pole.”

I enjoyed this book so much, that I had our library order the 1st & 2nd books of the series! (Something I have rarely done.) Embarrassed smile Yes, I am reading book 2 now, Murder of Crows!

Hellsbane ~ Paige Cuccaro

Bring on the Fallen, Angels & the warriors "enlisted" to keep a world ending war from occurring. What brings on war, well it's not religion here ... women, of course. Comes down to whether or not Angels can stay faithful or are loving sex. Yep, sex is all those little Fallen seem to be about. ;)
Emma finds out that her mother was pretty much "over come" by an Angel (Fallen) creating her. She becomes enlisted by helping an old classmate when he's in battle. Makes you have second thoughts about helping other's, doesn't it?
I cannot wait to read more about Emma & other of Ms Cuccaro's books.

Wild-born (Psionic Pentalogy #1) ~ Adrian Howell

Takes something humans would actually do to individuals with unique abilities & makes an interesting story from it. This is not a “cliffhanger” like you find in most series, it does leave you expecting more of a story.

Addy & Cat are attacked in their own home. Their parents murdered. Separated when they are fleeing the house. Addy is picked up by an older Psioic, who uses his powers to control Addy. But Addy eventually gets away, he is then found by another … one who only wants to help.
Addy becomes like an older brother to Alia. Her story is pretty bad, but has amazing powers.

I cannot wait to see what happens with Addy & Alia in future books. Plus learning about Cat, will she be recovered or lost for good?

Dead to the World (iZombie #1) ~ Chris Roberson, Mike Allred

Normally I am not a fan of graphic novels. Push comes to shove, I will read them if nothing else is on hand. I compare them to comics, which I loved as a child but I have long since moved on. Although this one just might change that … maybe.
I picked this graphic novel up from our library simply because I really do enjoy the IZombie show. So, I was EXPECTING the graphic novel to follow the same path … BOY was I wrong. Liv is a coroner in the show, getting her brains. In the book, Gwen is a gravedigger, who returns at night to dig up “fresh” bodies when she needs her “brain fix.” From there it is complete different …

I enjoyed reading a book that I did not compare to a show. Gwen’s friends are a Were-Terrier & a Ghost from the 60’s. Add in Vamps, a strange Mummy, & two men that belong to a group that is out to kill all “non-human’s.” The Were-Terrier has the feelings for Gwen, but so does one of the Hunters. (Which complete freaks Gwen out & sends her running.)
But like the show, she is hunting down a killer. Guess eating a persons brain will have you hunting down what killed them … natural or otherwise.

I guess I will have to wait for judgment until after I have read a couple more Winking smile

Demon Street Blues (Wicked Good Witches #1)

Creating a small area in a world where all paranormal creatures exist, came out to be an interesting place. The main characters are all strongly written. They have doubts that are ones most people deal with. They aren't perfect individuals, and in this story they aren't meant to be.
Impressive. Ms. Silver did an amazing job & I hope the rest of the series is written this well.

Hexed (Kate Daniels, #4.5; Otherworld, #9.5; Stormwalker, #2/5; Anna Strong Chronicles, #6/5)

A book with 4 amazing stories. Each one pulls you in. About Otherworld individuals, Witches, vampires, and shapeshifters.
Ilona Andrews, Yasmine Galenorn, Allyson James & Jeanne Stein simply pull you into the story. Proving detail that you can simply picture in your head. Plus they give you alittle detail about the 4 women they have written about before.
Dali Harimau a shapeshifting tirgress a woman with an attitude that would knock the socks of most men ... if she were more than a character in a book. Ilona Andrews wrote a story that makes me want to find the series Dali was involved in, to read about the other characters.
Iris Kusi is the house sprite from the Otherworlds series Yasimine Galenorn writes. Iris has shown a bit of spirit in those series, and now you get to learn where she came from. As well as her past, and the future she is to lead.
Stormwalker Janet Bagey is a strong woman who has to deal with being able to feel & bring storms to where she is. But she as a power from her mother that can be combined with her storm magic ... but it can also cause the vortexes to open and release evil goddess & gods. Allyson James provides you with tense moments that keep you on edge.
Anna Strong, bounty hunter turned vampire, this is where she has to prove her actions in a sarced place where rules have to be followed, were not that of an individual using the area to prevent further evil actions by a demented individual. Anna has to prove this or die with on of the witches siblings. Jeanne Stein proves you with info that has you wanting to read the series (which I have read some (:  )

Once Beauty Twice Beast ~ Cameron Jace

I did enjoy this, but was a bit disappointed that it was pretty vague in so many ways. But then they are "prequels" not the full story. I can only hope they that do expand more in the actual Grimm Diaries!

Iced ~ Karen Marie Moning

Well it’s not narrated by Mac or Barron, this one is all Dani. From being to end, you follow Dani around while she figures out who is freezing Dublin. Add that she is avoiding Mac, because she did lead Mac’s sister to her death. Oh there is more … Christian is turning into an Unseelie Prince, and has some type of attraction to Dani. Ryodan hires Dani, plus he seems to see the type of woman she will become. Then there is Dancer, her friend, who is the brains behind many of her current accessories.
Dani has so much on her plate for a 14 yr. old, but she is out there just trying to solved each problem before it becomes far worse than it could be.
I was impressed by this book. I loved the 1st of the Fever Series. But to write this from the view point of a cocky 14 yr. old, Ms. Moning took a huge chance that worked out rather well.
I cannot wait to read Burned to see if she can keep the humor, and suspense in this series going. With Dani’s curiosity, we might get a bit more knowledge on exactly what Barron, Ryodan, Lori & the rest of the group truly are.

Silver Borne ~ Patricia Briggs

What can I say Ms. Briggs can definitely keep you turning page after page to find out exactly what Mercy got herself into this time. Of course not all of this is exactly Mercy's fault but trouble does seem to follow her like you would never believe!!!
Bad date with Adam, let's Mercy know that someone was using pack magic to interfere with her mind. Then Samuel's wolf is in charge because he tried to kill himself. And, of course, there is a problem with the Fae, which sadly Mercy isn't really involved in directly but it lands right in her lap.
All I can say is Ms. Briggs keeps you wrapped up in all three issues, knowing Mercy will do her damnest to resolved all of them.

Blood Apples (Grimm Diaries Prequel #6) ~ Cameron Jace

This one is narrated by Prince Charming.
This is the same prince that was bitten by Snow White as a child. One who keeps coming back for her, time after time. This time to find that Snow White is trapped in Rapunzel’s tower, with Rapunzel. In this story, it appears that Rapunzel is a witch, but trapped in the tower by Dame Gothel. (Who takes the children that the Devil banishes back to earth.)
Now Prince Charming has to rescue Snow White from the tower. He beings looking for Jack, who finds him, to rescue the love of his life.

In this tale he will meet Gretel, Marmalade, Rapunzel (sorta), and the Goddess Pomona. You will discover why the prince loves Snow White so much, as well as why apples are red. After all, red is a forbidden color in the Sorrow Kingdom.
This story will also give you some ideas as to who the Lost Seven are. Enjoy the read … I have to go find the rest of the Grimm Diaries Prequels Smile (Although Mr. Jace mentioned 7, there seem to be a few more than that.)

Mary Mary Quite Contrary (Grimm Diaries Prequel #5) ~ Cameron Jace

This one is narrated by the Devil himself.
The Devil asks the children in his hell to provide him with something entertaining, because he has since found that humans are “boring.” Peter Pan, yep he’s in hell as a student of Lucifer, simply doesn’t get it. And the Devil keeps thinking that he should just banish him because Pan wants to stay young and never grow up. Pippi Longstocking gave the Devil a mirror, one that was not like current ones they had, this one was made of glass.
Having fun with this mirror, the Devil took it to look upon Heaven to see what the mirror would show. Let me back track a little, this mirror showed the ugliness of what ever was shown into it’s glass, no matter how beautiful it was.
So, during the fight to see what the mirror showed of Heaven, it shattered. Dropping pieces of it’s glass into the eyes and hearts of humans. Turning those people into evil individuals, part of this freighting the Devil but part wanting him to find the creator of the mirror.

Using the assistance of Rumpelstiltskin, the Devil tries to track where the mirror came from. But there is not luck, while Rumpelstiltskin is great at finding evil little kids, he is not so great at finding the creator of the mirror.
The Devil begins watching Elizabeth Bathory, who pieces of the mirror in her eyes & her heart, making her an evil little child who grew to be an evil lady.
But during all of this, Elizabeth was impregnated by a peasant. Providing the Devil with a way to take Mary, the daughter of Elizabeth. This gave the Devil two individuals to watch. Believing that Elizabeth passed on some of the shards of that glass to Mary, but also that Elizabeth seem to “overcome” the evil trapped inside her.
Watching Mary grow up in a horrid life, the Devil stop watching Elizabeth. When Mary fled from her home and into the forest at 16, unable to locate her, the Devil when back to watching Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was into torturing the peasants, especially the females. Later she would begin bathing in their blood. To include the blood of her daughter, Mary.
On the night that this occurs, the Devil learns that those with the glass splinters are now immortal. Mary comes back attacking her mother, and becomes Bloody Mary.
Well, if I keep going, you will know the entire story. So to find out what the Devil did or what Mary did, you will just have to sit back and enjoy this story. I am off to read Blood Apples!

Ladle Rat Rotten Hut (Grimm Diaries Prequel #4) ~ Cameron Jace

This prequel is narrated by Little Red Riding Hood.
This story being telling you of a little girl who is terrified of the wolves that scare her each night. One night on the advice of a stranger, she take a bottle of her mother’s wine, drinking it, spilling the red wine on the sheet covering her from the wolves sight. Once she has had enough, or is actually drunk enough, she kneels on her bed with the now-red sheet covering her. This scares the wolves, but she does not know why. Only that she discovers the wolves are afraid of her.
Later, she is to take over her mother’s job, but she does not know exactly what the job is. Going into the forest, via a carriage, it’s attacked by wolves. The driver and one of the horses have been eaten by the wolves. Trying to follow a map, Little Red Riding Hood finds a boy in the forest, who teaches her a new language, “Anguish.” But the boys is not exactly who he appears to be.
Little Red Riding Hood also meets Hansel & Gretel, and informs them that they will be great individuals when they grow up. She also promises to meet them later so they can all learn “Anguish” later in the market place.

In this prequel, Little Red Riding Hood discovers who she truly is, as well as other interesting details. This prequel gives you a bit more info than the prior 3.

Beauty Never Dies (Grimm Diaries Prequel #3) ~ Cameron Jace

This prequel is narrated by Peter Pan, and boy does Mr. Jace have one heck of a twist in this one.
Peter Pan is waking up Dracula, so he can wake up the love of his life. His “assistant” is the Hunchback of Notre Dame. One his way to complete the ceremony, the Evil Queen shows up with her bag of items. The items she needs to find the Lost Seven (you will have to read Snow White Blood Red to find out more on that). She has come to Peter to learn who they are, & believes with his assistance she can locate them before they find Snow White. Or before Snow White can find them. They are simple clues; beans, knife, plate, fork, bread crumbs, glass mug, and chair. Each connecting to a fairy tale character who has assisted Snow White in the past.
After Peter helps her figure out some of the clues, he returns to his ceremony to wake up his true love, created by more than one author, she exists in more than one fairy tale.

Ashes to Ashes and Cinder to Cinder (Grimm Diaries Prequel #2) ~ Cameron Jace

This prequel is narrated by Alice Grimm.
Immortals are the fairy tale characters themselves. They cannot be killed, but if they are killed in Dreamworld it puts them in a coma they will not wake from. Dreamhunters are the individuals who can enter an Immortals dreams to kill them.
In this story, Alice flies to Venice on a mission to “find Cinderella” with the help of Loki, a Dreamhunter.
Bella shows her the corpse of a witch that was burned, with 7 nails in her jaw, and staked to the ground. When the tarp is removed, Alice learns that the witch was buried with 17 glass slippers. Making this witch the individual who can help her find Cinderella.
During the time spent in Dreamworld, Alice tries to explain a lot of this to Loki. They begin looking for the witch, which is unusual for Loki but he agrees to help Alice complete her mission.

This story gives you a bit about who Loki is. Which is suppose to help out later in Snow White Sorrow.

Snow White Blood Red (A Grimm Diaries Prequel #1) ~Cameron Jace

Just how do can you give this prequel a review without telling much, but letting others know it’s worth the read?

Want a new twist on Snow White, read the prequel that is narrated by Snow White Queen/Evil Queen … or as you find out, Snow White’s mother.
She begins by telling Wilhelm Grimm that the changes in his stories were more than deceitful.

She admits that she is somewhat evil, but not as evil as Snow White. That she told his brother, Jacob, the story as he lay dying. How she was looking for the “Lost Seven” who were called the “Seven Dwarves” in Snow White’s tale. She also states that because of the changes in the stories, it provides Snow White with more power with each person who believes.
The Queen tells of how Snow White bite a young prince, nearly killing him. Causing her father to use black magic to save the prince, and erase the minds of the prince’s parents. And who that event changed the relationship between Snow White & her mom, the Queen narrating this tale.
It even gives you a sneak peek at the Magic Mirror, not much but enough to make you wonder if the entire family is nothing but evil. If they are, then who is the worst of the two?
Snow White fooled the Huntsman, Prince Charming & the Queen, and how she is fooling the world as well.

I cannot wait to see how the book Snow White Sorrow of the Grimm Diaries by Cameron Jace goes. I think I am enjoying the twists on fairy tales more than I enjoyed the actual fairy tales as a child.

Blood Soaked Promises (Blood & Snow #4) ~ RaShelle Workman

Snow receives a gift from Christopher, a pendant which she later learns the tale of. But unable to deal with the stress or responsibilities, she tries to hide from all of the issues occurring. Learning that her friend is a witch, doesn’t help the situation either. She allows herself to b e over whelmed by everything.
All in all it was a good read. I am sure Ms. Workman could have had more details in these stories, but she choose not to included too much detail. For this story, it actually works. What you read, builds for the next novelette.
(Spoilers … don’t read if you don’t like them)
The story beings with Snow, telling about how much of a klutz that she is. And showing her friendship between the brothers & Cindy. It, also, shows how her father & stepmother aren’t around that much, but how Professor Pops and the brothers are. All in all you get a good idea how close those individuals mean to Snow.
When things start going “strange” (so to speak) Snow depends a lot on the brothers & Professor. Causing some distance between her & Cindy, but things will seem to get resolved later.
Snow becomes a Revenant, not quite human but not quite vampire, when she is bitten by the Hunter assigned to her, Christopher Charming. Who she discovers is the “new guy” in school, that all the girls are so interested in. Yet, he is more focused on her.
She later learns Charming’s story, on how he became a vampire. She will also learn how Cindy’s family is a descendent of the witches, and that Cindy is also one. (Lot’s a quick stories wrapped up into one here)
During all this time, there is a break between Snow, Professor & the brothers. Charming has gone missing, and her parents leave once again. She, also, losses the pendant that Charming left for her. She runs because she bit Gabe, and the novelette leaves you hanging as to wondering if she killed him or not.

Will definitely have to read the next novelette, Prey and Magic.

The Vampire Christopher (Blood and Snow #3) ~ RaShelle Workman

After biting her Hunter, Christopher, Snow becomes less of a klutz. But that does not stop the issues from occurring in her life.
One of her friends goes missing, Gabe decides to back off from their pending relationship, and of course her parents show up.
In this novelette, you learn how Christopher became a vampire. As well as, how Snow survives the 1st attack on her life. Although Gabe backs off, he’s there to train her, as well as take her to school each day.

There is so much that could be told, but telling them kinda of spoils the read.

Revenant in Training (Blood and Snow #2) ~ RaShelle Workman

Snow wakes up after being bitten by a Hunter. Turned into a Revenant, she must learn how to defend herself, and learn about other types of creatures to ensure she survives.
Gabe, one of her 7 best friends, spills how he really feels about her. And Professor Pops explains that all the boys have some type of feelings for her, shocking Snow.

Going back to school as a Revenant proved to be harder than she imaged. Pulled out of school by the Professor, Snow learns about the other creatures and the possibly of what could be after her.
She learns that her blood cravings are more towards males, excluding females because of her bond with the 7 brothers. It is pretty much up to the 7 brothers to protect her from anything that might come after her.
Snow, also, learns who her Hunter is … let’s just say if you are reading this, you can prob figure it out yourself.

Will Snow White become the next Queen of the Vampires? Or will her “true love” turn her back to being a regular human?
There is a lot to tell, but in this novelette, telling too much will simply spoil the read.

Black Magic Sanction ~ Kim Harrison

When you review a book do you find it ok to give a little “spoiler” here or there? Or do you find “spoilers” just kill the next reader’s interest in reading the book?
Personally, some “spoilers” I find ok … so if you are gonna read my review, well, heads up. I won’t spoil the ending of the book, but I may give you some “spoilers.”

Rachel Morgan is at it again, running into a situation that could kill her or those she loves.
Currently, Rachel is Al’s student. (for those who have NOT read the past books, Al is a demon. The cure Rachel received from Trent’s father, made it possible for her to use demon magic. Any other info, you will just have to read the books) The “Coven” happens to be the group after Rachel this time. They have shunned her because of the “black magic” she has done, plus they were told that she can do demon magic.
Brook and Victoria, let’s just say that “good witches” aren’t really all they claim to be. One will abuse her power to become more powerful, and the other will abuse it to “catch” Rachel. These two “ladies” are members of the Coven.
Rachel has Peirce babysitting her because of a major mess up during her training with Al. Newt (another demon) has demanded it, or for Al to release Rachel as his student so Newt can teach her. (Newt is one crazy demon.)
But in the end, it’s all on Rachel, Ivy & Jenks to survive the issue of the Coven going after Rachel. They plan to sterilize Rachel to end her bloodline, or much worse. Wickedly evil people who claim to be so “good.”
The one question is “Who provided the info to the Coven?” Trent, Nick, Lee … or does Al have his greedy little hands in this?

Sorry but if I do keep writing about this book, I will give up more than I think should be shared. You will just have to READ this great book to find out what all is going on, and who caused it.
Also, sorry if I didn’t stay on track for my review … But I did give you several reason to read the book Smile

Darkness Falls ~ Jessica Sorensen

When you review a book do you find it ok to give a little “spoiler” here or there? Or do you find “spoilers” just kill the next reader’s interest in reading the book?

Personally, some “spoilers” I find ok … so if you are gonna read my review, well, heads up. I won’t spoil the ending of the book, but I may give you some “spoilers.”

Following Kayla as she learns there is more to her life than simply being a Bellator.
You will learn she knows she is different from others; able to lie, that she hears heart beats, able to tell others fears and a few other items. You will have to read to learn those … after all, I am just giving you a REVIEW, not the entire story.

Kayla ends up being chosen for the Gathering. What she finds out later is that some of those chosen will end up incinerated, while others are left in the desert … in freaking body bags.
Here she is found by others who were left there as well. Some are scared of her, and trying to kill her. One does try to save her, but he lies about as much as she does … not such a great way to start a friendship there.

Kayla must get her memories back to find out exactly what she must do. Not all her options are ones we would always choose. But to gain those memories, she has decided to go through with them.
(now, I just need to get book two …)

Red (Transplanted Tales) ~ Kate SeRine

When you review a book do you find it ok to give a little “spoiler” here or there? Or do you find “spoilers” just kill the next reader’s interest in reading the book?
Personally, some “spoilers” I find ok … so if you are gonna read my review, well, heads up. I won’t spoil the ending of the book, but I may give you some “spoilers.”

Tess Little, AKA Red, is an “Enforcer” in the Chicago area. An enforcer tracks downs and brings in the local fairytale characters (who have “crossed over” to Hear & Now) who break the FMA laws.
Her current job has her tracking down the Pied Piper. Which sadly ends in his death, by suicide. During this, she gets danced away from the scene by the local detective/reaper, Nate Grimm. (Let’s just say by the description, many women wouldn’t mind having that dance! Winking smile ) Grimm is out to be her partner, in so many ways. Is he worth it? Or just like the long list of those Red has been involved with?
Problem being is Red has massive baggage. From the “big bad wolf” to Vlad ~ yep, Red has an on again/off again relationship with Dracula himself. Which during this investigation, Dracula tries to use his charm to win her over, again. Question comes down to it, does Red have enough will power to resist or is Dracula actually not as bad as other’s make him seem? (find that one out on your own)
The case she finds herself partnered with Grimm is concerning brutally slain fairytale characters. The list of suspects? 3 of Red’s ex’s … the big bad Wolf, Dracula & Todd Caliban ~ Wolf & Dracula, I know the stories, but Caliban I don’t but gonna have to look it up now. Yea, some are a bunch of creeps but not everyone is like the story they come from, something you will learn from this book.
Ms. SeRine begins to pull you in with in the first few minutes of reading. After all, you are reading about “Little Red Riding Hood” turned from the sweet thing in the stories to an arse kicking Enforcer. Who is now on a case where 3 of her “monster” ex’s are the lead suspects. If that story line doesn’t pull you in then nothing I have to say will.

All I can say, is this book is worth the read. And you can get the E-Book at Amazon.com for the Kindle. After all book two is suppose to be out Feb 2013, The Better to See You. (I am sure Ms. SeRine will pull us into that story just as fast as she did with Red)
