Redeemed by PC Cast and Kristen Cast

Posted by Angel kk at Thursday, October 30, 2014 0 comments

Synopsis
In  the final electrifying novel in the HoN series, Neferet has finally made herself known to mortals. A Dark Goddess is loose on Tulsa and the world. No single vampyre is strong enough to vanquish her - unless that creature has the power to summon the elementsas well as the ability to wield Old Magick. Only Zoey Redbird is heir to such power…but because of the consequences of using Old Magick, she is unable to help. Find out who will win and who will lose in this epic battle of Light versus Darkness

Review
The time has come to say goodbye to another series. From the moment I started this series I was excited to see what would happen and the finally does not disappoint. 

When we first meet Zoey she was dealing your typical teenager,  dealing with school, friends, a dysfunctional family and being  marked. But as the series has progressed we have followed her and her friends though fights love and death. Now the time as come to say good bye.

Like all the HON books Redeemed picks up were Revealed left off. Zoey beliefs that she has killed 2 men and is on her way to jail, Neferet has returned and  has proclaimed her self a goddess taking everyone in the mayo hostage .
Thing quickly change and Zoey  and the nerd heard are on a mission to put a stop to Neferet.
As you expect the rest of the vampire world seems either oblivious to the situation in Tulsa  or they don't care. Even the high council. This mean's that everything is left up to The Tulsa house of night. Which given they are primarily students do sent seem far.

There are a few moments that left me wondering and though the build up to the final event was strong I found the final battle to end as soon as it started.

Towards the end of this series there has been moments where I have found the story to have relatable elements to current world events and I have found myself wondering if this was intentional. 

As a final book in the series the overall conclusion could be considered predictable,  but I honestly think with the twist and turns in the story will have you guessing to the end. 
I love the HoN and it will remain one of my favourite series.  I can only hope that one day the do a book set in the future so we can see were they ended up.
Thank you PC Cast and Kristen Cast for creating such a beautiful series. Blessed be .

Cursed by Jennifer L Armentrout

Posted by Angel kk at Saturday, October 25, 2014 0 comments

Synopsis
Dying sucks
...and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. 

After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?

But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life.

For real this time.

Review
Cursed is the first book I have read by Jennifer L Armentrout and I can honestly say i loved it. 

Cursed is a story of Ember. Two years ago  she was involved in a horrible car accident that killed her dad and herself. But then her sister  brought back. What was the price of being brought back from the dead.

Two years later, their mother is not dealing with what happebed money is running out and Ember has to take care of Olivia.
Ember was once a popular and social teenager, now she is teased and ridiculed.  
After a horrific incident that lead to a guy from school dying from one touch of Ember's skin, Jonathan Cromwell decides to intervene, kidnapping her entire family and relocating them to a remote place where there are others with the same gifts. With one proplem none of them want her there, except  Hayden.

I love the unique voices she gives to each and everyone of her characters.

I have to admit, there are only a few characters that I really liked.  
l loved Ember. She's not a very trusting soul, but if you can't even trust yourself then how do you trust others? Then there is Hayden. He thoughtful and can really sees Ember for who she truly is. He never gave up on her, and always believed that she's more then her curse.

With that said, I still really loved this book. I love being in one of Jennifer worlds. She has an easy going and all consuming style that makes me sink into anything she writes. I enjoyed the fact that her characters were realistic and flawed which made them easy to relate to. The idea of thw varied gifts added a interesting element. With a mix  of unexpected twist and turns you will never see what is coming next. It's not predictable and had me guessing and entertained till the very last page. 
I can't wait to see if there is a sequel.

Toxic Heart (Mystic City, #2)by Theo Lawrence

Posted by Angel kk at Monday, October 13, 2014 0 comments

Synopsis
A city in flames. A trust betrayed. A perfect love destroyed.

Has Aria lost Hunter, her one true love?

Ever since rebellion broke out in Mystic City, pitting the ruling elite against the magic-wielding mystics, Aria has barely seen her boyfriend. Not surprising, since Hunter is the leader of the mystic uprising, and he'll do whatever it takes to win freedom for his people—even if that means using Aria.

But Aria is no one's pawn. She believes she can bring the two warring sides together, save the city, and win back the Hunter she fell in love with.

Before she can play peacemaker, though, Aria will need to find the missing heart of a dead mystic. The heart gives untold powers to whoever possesses it, but finding it means seeking out a fierce enemy whose deepest desire is for Aria to be gone—forever.

Review

I'm always reluctant to read a second book in series as it can often be disappointed. However his is not the case with Toxic Heart.
Toxic heart is a fantastic sequel to Mystic Heart. Picking up right where Mystic City left off, Aria is being trained by Shannon, one of Hunter's "friends", a girl who adds little to the overall story besides some background information, plot movement and minor conflict.
Toxic heart is primarily about Aria discovering and accepting who she is. As she learns more about herself , she also  learns more about the mystics.

Hunter does a complete 180 from the last book, he's roll in this story seems to be very minimal. He appears to be manipulates Aria and at tines controlling her moments.   In the last book he was passionate and willing to die from her, but in this book he acts like an entitled person.

On the upside, a lot of characters changed for the better and we also get to meet some other new interesting characters. In Toxic Heart, the bright light at the end of the tunnel was Turk. In the last book, he was a glorified sidekick, but here, we learn much more about him. He seems to genuinely care for Aria more than Hunter does, and he seems to have his head on his shoulders.

At times Aria still seems to be  naive and kind of ignorant. She often complains that Hunter is focusing too much on the war and not enough on her.

Overall, I liked the tone of the book. There were some interesting plot twists, I really enjoyed the epilogue and I will wait for the arrival of book three.

Mystic city by theo lawrence

Posted by Angel kk at Friday, October 03, 2014 0 comments

Synopsis

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud - and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths.

But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place.

Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection - and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city - including herself

Review
That would you do if you discoved your life was a lie. That everyone you knew were manipulating you. Would you stay or would you fight?

In Theo Lawrence mystic city we meet Aria Rose,  she is recovering from what she is told is a drug over dose which has left her with memory loss. But something doesnt feel right. Determand to find out the truth Aria is going to have to search do discover the truth. As she tries to remember who, what, where and why she also has to do with the here and know. Will she play the perfect daughter and live her life the way her parents want  or with she Remember.

Our leading man Hunter is a bit of a mystery even in the end we don't fully understand who he is. We no he is a mystic that he comes from a long line of mystics who fort for change.  That he loves Aria  and will do anything he can for her . But will his strength and courage be enough to save them.

Set in a environmental that has been manipulated and effected by global warming resulting in water leaves and temperatures rising.   This is not the only change the world has had , there are now mystics. They helped rebuild the c I type but now they are treated like second class citizens. The simplest way to describe them would be witches, though that doesn't adicatly cover what they are and what they can do. 

There is lots I would love to say about this book however I don't what to give anything away.
I really enjoyed this and am excited to start the second book Toxic Heart. 
If you don't have this book in your to read pile then add it today.
