Phyre can create fire from her hands and is living at Hestia's Home trying to get past bad memories from her past and look towards her future. Then Hephaestus Cronus arrives to stay with his foster mother Hestia so he can recover from heartache. Heph is a metal working god and never expected to be so drawn to the cherry haired girl who is enjoying the solitude that can be found there. Can this crippled god find true love with the fiery spirited woman he is so drawn to?

This is a lovely story of love between two damaged souls. As is often the case the path to true love doesn't run smoothly but it does get there in the end. I loved this story. It was well written, and I could feel the emotions and frustrations experienced by the characters. I loved the ending.

Rowen is a fugitive and must avoid being captured by the Dragons by hiding in the human realm. All she has is a treasure map to find the Red Dragon and her two powers of persuasion and prophecy. She finds help from a new friend and has to hide from a pirate who is concentrating on vengeance. Then a man from her past warns her and questions this whole journey.

Wow - the plot definitely thickened in this book. I LOVED the story and the way it developed. It was very well told and the writing was easy to understand but also meant that I felt all the complex thoughts and emotions involved in the story. The ending was just WOW!!! I can't wait to find out what happens next in this complex story. You have got to read this.

End of the Line End of the Line by Steven Penny
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maeve makes a new friend while her mother sleeps on the train.

This was a lovely story that was full of flowing descriptions of the people and the emotions involved in the story. It wasn't obvious how the story was going to end until you were there so you were left guessing. I loved the idea and the plot involved in the story. Who knows - maybe that really happens in real life? We'll never know.

Life appears to be back to normal for the Deschanel family - they are establishing routine, getting jobs or studying at college. But there are plenty of shadows from the past lurking with the promise of something happening soon.

This was a continuation of the story with yet more strands being pulled together or in some cases pulled apart. The writing was good and I could understand and experience the thoughts and emotions of the characters as the story developed. There are some big stories developing and I look forward to those being concluded in the next book.

Review: Hunting A Demon by Sara C. Walker 4 of 5 stars

Hunting A Demon Hunting A Demon by Sara C. Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed this book and I have not been compensated in any way.

Melantha Caldwell is a spell-turner and she is worried her friend Savion Lebrun (who is also one) is getting into black magic. However he is actually spending time with another girl called Hope who is also experiencing seizures and sleep walking. Then spell-turners seems to be getting sick. Mel has to trust the new guy in town Phoenix to work out what is going on but that is dented when she finds out what he really is. They need to work together to save Hope and stop the demons from becoming free.

This was a lovely story which was well told with lots of plot twists and turns as the story unfolded. I liked the dilemmas Mel went through deciding it she could trust her old friend, the new guy or neither. I could feel her frustration at times when she had no idea what was happening and no one would tell her what was going on.

Review: Kade by A.K. Michaels 5 of 5 stars

Kade Kade by A.K. Michaels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

Shifter Kade MacKenzie is out of control with the Hunger that is driving him wild with a need to kill and eat prey. His best friend and Beta Lennox warns him what is causing it but he finds the whole idea ridiculous - that is until his wolf takes control and takes him on a quest to find his soul-mate.

I LOVED this story and the way that it developed. Kade was the tough guy that you always envision an Alpha to be, but had also soft gentle edges that made him quite irresistible. As for his mate when he find her, she was feisty and had a take no prisoners attitude that fit perfectly into the role of an Alpha's mate. The story was well written and everything was well described. It was full of complicated thoughts, hopes and fears and I could feel all the emotions that the characters were going through.

Review: Reapers: The Shadow Soldiers by Josh Collins 5 of 5 stars

Reapers: The Shadow Soldiers Reapers: The Shadow Soldiers by Josh Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed this book and I have not been compensated in any way.

Ben Burns is a former Black-Ops solider who is having a crisis and breakdown when he is forced into joining the fight to free the icy planet Silverset from terrorists. He is assigned to a team of misfits and they are given some armour which had been retired as it was considered too dangerous to use. Can they free the planet and will it lead to his own salvation?

I loved this story - it contained alien worlds that were described very well and a complicated main character that meant that to describe both fully the story seemed to start slowly, however when the mission started the action developed fairly quickly. I liked the whole plot idea and the links between the characters which developed as the story progressed. A good scifi story that definitely transports you away to other worlds.
