Description from goodreads :

  The premonition is clear. Demons are coming for Cassidy, and once her blood has been spilled humanity will be lost. Not only has Tyler been tasked with assassinating Cassidy, but killing her will be the last step he needs to take in order to become a full demon.

Killian knows this and vows to keep Cassidy safe, but not everything is as it seems. Figuring out who to trust, who to confide in isn’t easy. With so much at stake one wrong move could mean the end of the human world, causing Cassidy and Killian to lose everything…even each other.

With a war raging between two sides, Cassidy and Tyler find themselves at the heart of battle between good and evil. She wants to save Tyler. He wants to kill her.

What will it take to restore the balance?


And will Cassidy be strong enough to make the ultimate sacrifice if it means saving the world?



My opinion:
          Captivating, the author took her time to write this book but the wait was more than worth it as the quality is here . We do get our answers ( and if you don't read the epilogue it concludes perfectly).
Our characters are facing their greatest challenge so far and it's far from easy for them.....Cassidy is learning to master new powers while not giving up to her fears after being held by Rya.

Killian is seeing what he really want and must make decision for his clan yes but also for himself. . He must decide if he is willing to let Cassidy join him in the field or to protect her and that's a dilemma for him now even more than before. What he will be willing to sacrifice.

Tyler has choices to make while in demon realm. It was very interesting to see him interact with Jace ; how he was thinking without realizing it.

Then we get the rest of the team Lena, who lost points in my eyes, Casper who is even more my favourite now than before, Jax, Jackson and Skylar as well as all the others.

Really it's a excellent book, fast pace with several twist to keep you hooked. A real page turner with very interesting conclusion. Lot of action, moving moment, heartbreaking ones all very well balanced in the story.

The author did put an epilogue but like she warns reader if you want the story concluded with an HEA and no questions left unanswered just stop before reading it. .The epilogue is back being dark a bit confusing and opening a lot more questions ( for perhaps more books), it does fit the series but for me it was better without it.


Score:  4,5/5 or 5/5 if you don't read the epilogue

Happy Reading!

Description from goodreads :

 Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…


My opinion:
          Good, this second instalment takes place just where first one ended and even better we get several point of view as the action takes place in each realms so we can follow what happen to the hunters compound, in the human realm and in the demons one.
Killian has an hard time to cope with everything but loosing Cassidy is the worse so he is willing to work with Tyler even if he is part demon to save her. In the meantime he is searching for allies to rebuild his clan compound and get ready for the war to come. When an angel comes to help it's great but sadly not enough either.
In this book we get to see another side of Killian too he can be really patient and tender.


Cassidy is confronted to things she never expected and it does impact her deeply but since book 1 we know she is strong so seeing her in such a state in moving. Her courage and determination are really showing as despite everything she still think of others.

Tyler learns more about himself but also meet potential allies in Farron and Siobhan...not a friendship but a gesture of faith in a sense and we will get to see if his mind is as strong as we could believe as he has a lot to face from now on.

Really i enjoyed that the quality of writing stayed the same and to see what happen in the demons realm was really interesting. There were moving moments, lot of actions . We do learn a lot but the author also put the elements needed for the war to come answering questions and adding more  as well.

The ending is a bit hard as cliffhanger so i can't wait to jump in book 3


Score:  4/5

Between the Bleeding Willows (Demon Hunters series 1) by D.A. Roach

Hello to all...;

              it's a new week and with the end of the year at the horizon the stress of getting ready in gift making is growing. However, this month there is a read along that seemed very tempting and book 1 was free so i had to join and i'm not regretting it at all .

Between the bledding Willows was a great read and i can't wait to start book 2.....you can still join the read along if you are interested ( you can win prize) just check it here.

Now i should try to give you my opinion without spoilers if possible so happy reading.

Description from goodreads :

 At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.
Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.



My opinion:
          Great first instalment in an excellent YA urban fantasy....we are immediately immerged  in a universe captivating and it becomes quickly a real page turner.

I loved Cassidy, she is courageous and even if she is suffering she wants to help others...she is thrown into a world she had no ideas existed, she gets injured and she still wants to save her friends.
Killian is young but already a leader so when Cassidy follows him she become his responsibility even if deep down something else is growing. He is courageous, determined to do good by his clan even if it means not following his heart.
The secondary characters like Casper are also really interesting and we want to learn more about them.

There are a lot of violence - but they are fighting demons after all,- some moments  are really tearful and at other time we are smiling or laughing so this story really has it all and i do recommend you to try it if you are interested.

the only  thing a little bothersome is the cliffhanger but book 2 is already out so if you want you don't need to wait before continuing their adventures.

The Good Griffin ( the Old Black Magic/ Heart's Desired Mate series) by JC McKenzie

Hello to all,


              While it's raining non stop, i enjoy reading more so  you don't have to wait long to get my opinion which can be good. Today i'm sharing my point of view about The Good Griffin a new release by J.C.McKenzie.

Enjoy!

 Description from goodreads :

  He's a good griffin, with a bad temper...
Detective Damian Charming yearns to sweep a certain feisty lynx shifter off her feet. Every time he tries to talk to her, however, he sticks his foot in his mouth. He doesn't mean to sound condescending. Life would be easier if Lucy admitted he knows best, especially now that someone in town has threatened her. He's a good griffin (mostly) until someone messes with what is his.

She's an unlucky lynx with no time for trouble...
Lucy May hates Stillwater detective Damian Charming. Sure, he helped her with a horrible situation and has looks to rival the gods, but he also views lynx shifters as inferior supernatural beings. When someone targets the business she worked hard to create, though, Lucy turns to the one man she knows will mercilessly unearth the culprit.

It's more than just hex appeal...
When a hex sends the town in a storm of sexual shenanigans in the middle of the investigation, Lucy realizes just how bad she has it for the griffin. Now she needs to convince Damian her feelings are true and reel him in before his need for vengeance destroys the entire town.


The books in That Old Black Magic world and Heart's Desired Mate Series can be read as stand-alone stories and in any order




My opinion:
          I loved this romance a lot first it includes shifters but not the usual ones here we have griffin and lynx and it was my first book with a griffin shifter so i was very curious....as for big cats ( there are others than lynx) they are simply too funny in general.

In this case our heroes are in a big misunderstanding, they love each other already but each one think the other feels only hate ....so it's funny to see their banter while they are the only ones blind to their feelings. Damian is very protective of Lucy but isn't talented in communication as a big alpha he tends to order too much. However when some shops and Lucy's get vandalized  our griffin goes on mission to protect her even if it means not following the rules.

Lucy is loyal, kind and her animal part is really funny as a lynx she is a good hunter but thinks that Damian sees her as  under his standard. While she is one of the very few knowing what kind of shifter he really is. Griffin are believed to be legend.

The story is really good with action, twists, humour and lot of romance ; it can be read as standalone without trouble even if i admit i would be happy to discover more about this universe where shifters have magic and where warlocks wander around.

The investigation was interesting, even if we don't get all the answers but i'm hoping  in the future we will get more info.

I do recommend this story if you want a fast but very good and original paranormal romance.

Score:  4/5

Time and Remembrance (Kiss across Time 7.1) by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Hello,

            i'm busy trying to create some christmas gifts ( and finishing them on time^^) but it's also a special year with a lot of commemorations ....100years after the end of WW1....and i wanted to share with you a novella set in that time simply because no one should ignore it existed and if we need fiction to remember it's still better than forgetting.

so good reading.

Short description from goodreads :

 A special story marking a moment in history…lest we forget.

On the one hundredth anniversary of Armistice Day, Jesse Hall, United States Marine and unsung hero, finds herself among a group of time-traveling vampires. She has been directed there by a century-old letter from her great-grandfather, instructing her to introduce herself with the phrase: “I’m not wearing a red shirt.”


So begins a dash through time to save a man in the very last minutes of the Great War, which in turn will save eight million other lives…



My opinion:
          World war 1 isn't something new to me, i have read quite a lot about it since i had family impacted by it., however while we are celebrating the 100th of its end it's true that less and less people have an idea of the nightmare it was. No matter the side, no one left unchanged.....and while outside wound were horrible, inside hidden one may have been the worse. Lot of people see it as not mattering anymore.

Knowing that, when i heard about this novella even if i didn't read the rest the series i wanted to discover it and i really appreciate all the research the author did to writes this story. yes it's a paranormal novella and in these time we probably do need this way to deliver the message but that's the essential : that we never forget.

For a first jump into the series it can be a little confusing as we don't know the main characters but we easily get past that as WW1 is really the main focus. I really loved this novella so if you want a novella just to make you remember a little this is the perfect one ( and you will perhaps want to learn more after  as well)

Description from goodreads :

 Only five days to Christmas.

The Reverend Imogen Lockley’s busiest time of year. She thinks she’s prepared for anything, but nothing can prepare her for Devlin Royce.

A long time ago, Devlin was an angel. Then he broke the laws of Heaven and stole the Elixir of Life to save the woman he loved. Caught, he was torn from her arms and cast into the Abyss. There, he became a Storm Lord, a creature of chaos and destruction.

Two thousand years ago, Imogen drank the Elixir of Life. Since then, her soul has been tied to the earth in a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth. And throughout each life she is haunted by memories of a love she cannot remember and a betrayal she can’t forgive.

Now, Devlin has been given one chance to get her back. Or lose her forever. And he has five days to do it. Can he somehow make her see beyond the dark being he has become, to the angel she once loved?


My opinion:
          Great paranormal story with a Christmas feeling to it as well. This is the 4th book in the series and it's done so it could be read as standalone but i definitively recommend to read the series in order as it help us to  more of what are in stake beside their love life.

Devlin like his " brothers" lost his wife 2000y ago in atrocious conditions, now he is looking for knowing that if she can't remember their love she will be lost forever....Devlin is protective and used to act first, think after....he never knew what happed in Zaria in her first life since he was thrown in the abyss by Gabriel after having been striped of his wings. By the way Gabriel is still a jerk.....for an archangel is sure isn't very helpful and i wonder if his actions 2000y ago were not led by pure jealousy.....because he sure wasn't forgiving and very judgemental.

Devlin is focused on protection Zaria, even thinking about preventing her to remember but when she suddenly appears remembering it all and being a vicar he isn't sure how to react while his feelings haven't changed at all.

Imogen is terrified of heights and has nightmarre of dying so after reading an ad she decide to try it but not where it was said in the ad because she is a vicar and fear the consequences it could have his people knows she could accept idea of past life. Result: she remember everything...all her precedent lives and of course the first one when she was Zaria a prostitute who fell in love with an angel...and of course its tragic ending for a sin that wasn't hers.
Imogen is furious against Devlin but still in love with him however the betrayal feels too fresh for her to trust him.

She knows he has changed and she wants time to think about it since it's all new and she is busy at Christmas time of the year....;however time is the issue and it take an invasion of demons to make her realize that faith is all what she need.

There is action ( no stopping), romance, some banter and we get to see characters from precedents books as well as insights of what is about to happen so this is really a excellent story read in one sitting that i would recommend with pleasure.

Score:  5/5

Eagle (Linear Tactical 2) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,

                   Looks like i will be surrounded by strike starting next week ( worse in my opinion is the postal service one so they better have finished when it's time to send christmas cards)
That being said i 'm taking the time to read when i can so i loved having a day off for this story.

Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on a new release " Eagle"  by Janie Crouch.

Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 He’s fighting for what’s right.
She’s fighting just to survive…

When former Special Forces soldier Finn Bollinger is asked to help with a deadly government mission, he’s up for the task. His job teaching survival skills to civilians at Linear Tactical keeps him sharp, and he can still handle himself in the field.
But the Army damn well didn’t teach Finn how to handle Charlotte Devereux. She’s back and she’s all sorts of bad news.
Charlotte can’t change the past. Can’t change the choices she made or the fact that they cost her everything. All she can do is endure the fallout. Even if that means putting her future in the hands of Finn, the man who has every right to want to destroy her.
And can in so many more ways than he thinks.
When the undercover mission goes impossibly wrong, they’ll all have to depend on Charlotte’s strength in order to survive. But everyone has a breaking point…

My opinion:
          Perfect!!! i loved the first Linear tactical book ( Cyclone) but i think this one is my favourite! It's simply the perfect balance between action, tension, romance and cute moment (all due to Ethan). This book was a great read, with some twists to spice it up.

Finn is an attentive father and i loved to learn more about him and Ethan....he was hurt by Charlotte ( Charlie) in the past and at first he doesn't trust her but for his son he is ready to make effort as she could be the only one able to help him....but deep down he just needed the push as his love for Charlie never disappeared. He is strong, protective as well as determined.

Charlie is courageous, tenacious and put other before her needs which resulted in her being homeless and without money despites several jobs....at first we may be suspicious seeing Finn reactions but when we learn the why we can only admire her courage and determination. She is really perfect for Finn and a great tutor / teacher. Despite her problem she still look out for others like Jordan (we heard about her in book 1)....and we see how strong minded she can be when it's really important.

I really loved the intrigue even if the villain wasn't really a surprise, it was more than enough to be read in one sitting as i wanted more of Ethan and sky along the couple Finn/Charlie. i really recommend this book if you want a good military romance

V-Day (The Vistaria Affair/Vistaria has fallen 6) by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Hello to all,

             Fall has started for good now so what could be better than reading near the fire with a cup of tea ( when time allows it,that's is). Today i'm sharing with you the conclusion of Visteria has fallen series by Tracy Cooper-Posey.

Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 They have known and loved each other for years, but they have never met ... until now.
When Cristián Peña and the entire town of Pascuallita vanish, Chloe Masters, former hacker and free spirit, races to the war-torn island to find the man who saved her life years ago. She has never met Cristián in person, yet she loves him, anyway.

There’s a drone carrying a dirty bomb, heading for the Whitehouse. No one knows who is controlling the drone. Cristián and Chloe, with their extraordinary talents, just might be able to stop it.

Cristián lives under the shadow of his famous older brother Duardo, which makes him doubt everything, including his feelings for Chloe. Cristián must find a way to step out of that shadow, if he is to save his family, the people of Pascuallita, Vistaria ... and Chloe.


My opinion:
          An excellent conclusion. We follow Cristian and Chloe who we met several time in precedent books and we learn not only how they met but a lot about their childhood which is a big help to understand them in the current situation. I admit i wouldn't have loved the young Chloe her choice of lifestyle is against mine but she became a very good soul and never hesitate to put herself in danger or share what she had invented in hope to save people that i admire. Cristian has some self esteem issue but when time asks for it he becomes the leader he can be.

In this story we see how deep the inssurectos have become depraved: abduction of civilians, torture, bordellos.....no war is clean but at this point it can't even be called war.  That forces people to make choice and if i can understand a few i must say i wouldn't be as forgiving as Calli toward the other captives.

The rhythm is fast as our heroes are facing a real countdown and we get to see the situation from several locations and point of view as the family is divided some in america some in mexico, two or 3 groups ( if Nick counts as one group he sure does enough damage alone) in Vistaria....All their actions are linked thanks to Chloe invention and we follow them without any trouble.

There are a lot of tension;some moment fear is edging in our heart but  thankfully the author does delivers and happy ending as we discover the after of each living characters.... a great way to end the series

Special Forces Savior ( Omega Sector, Critical Response 1) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,

                  While i shared my opinion with you about Janie Crouch new series i discovered that i never told you the book that started my enthousiasm about this author's writing so better late than never here comes my opinion on Special Force Savior (  you can get it free on Janie's website)

Happy reading

Description from goodreads :

  He has to shut down the terrorists or lose everything. Including the woman who's become a target.

Omega Sector: Critical Response agent Derek Waterman is hunting some very bad men. After weeks of chasing cold leads, he has found the evidence that could expose the architects of a lethal terrorist bombing. But before Derek can start busting bad guys, he needs help from Dr. Molly Humphries, Omega's lead forensic scientist.

Molly works to retrieve the data—and overcome her debilitating crush on the super agent. And Derek carefully suppresses his mutual smoldering attraction, sure that his dark past will drive Molly away. But when Molly's kidnapped, Derek will stop at nothing to save her. Even if a lethal enemy will do everything to keep him from doing so.




My opinion:
          I was looking for a good romance suspense when i came across this one and it's so good i want to continue the series even if this is a stand alone. Really it was super, the investigation, the characters all fit perfectly so that you were immersed in the story and not wanting to make a break but you could still take one if needed without feeling distressed.

Molly is a character i love, she is stronger than she looks, she is compassionate, intelligent and also vulnerable. She is important for the team even if she doesn't exactly see herself as part of it while staying in the lab. She puts her work before her life because for her each case is important...
Derek i want to strangle him a bit but with all he is confronted to i will allow him a reprieve^^ i mean he is deeply attracted to Molly but wants to take his distance for her wellbeing without in fact thinking about what she could be feeling  even once...worse he tends to redo the same mistake even after seeing what he did. he has good intentions though and he is really loyal going all the way to save her.

The whole team is interesting but this really focus on Derek and Molly so Liam and Jon are  a little put aside but hopefully they will get their time as they are courageous and funny!

The investigation was well done with a lot of twists and even better....vilains get what they deserve! i love when they don't get it easy after all the evil they have done.

really a good romance suspense to recommend

Cyclone (Linear Tactical 1) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,

This is a new series called Linear Tactical from Janie crouch and as you may have discovered by now i really enjoy her books but this one could be my favourite now so i should better give you my opinion on it without more delay.

 He’d protect her from any threat…
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place.


But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…




My opinion:
          Very good book that deserve reading in one sitting.....so i'm more than glad to have taken the time because the tension at some point had me glued to the book not caring the time. It's an excellent start for a new series...we got to learn a little about the other members of the team which i'm sure we will meet again later - i'm quite fond of poor suffering Dorian, Finn i like but until i learn more about his history i keep reservation-.

In this story we focus on Zac , ex military, founder of Linear tactical...who got his share of unfairness and suffering while loosing his wife and son for example. That could have made him revenful but no and i admire that.....he sure has faults but deep down he is a very good man with excellent teaching skills.
Soon after his wife death he made an error......and forgot the worst of it...however when Anne appears after 6y he isn't expecting fear in her eyes and definitively plan to learn the why and correct the situation.

Anne was best friend with Becky, Zac's wife, since school....;she is shy and despite having and hard childhood she grow up to be a strong woman and an excellent doctor. She always loved studying and books so beside Becky and Zac she was nearly invisible to others when they were not joking because she had a speech problem. However, in his grief Zac hurt her more than she could have imagined and she took his words to heart and flew to another state never planning to be back...life decided otherwise and she is trying to make the most of it.  Seeing Zac after all that time terrifies her  but soon she must face worse as a rapist is on the loose and while she is helping victims, Zac works on finding the culprit...proximity makes it hard to keep secrets....

Really the story is captivating and the tension, the violence is well balanced with the cute moments like the puppies or the exchanges between Zac and his best friends/brothers.

i've read this in one sitting and really i can't wait for next book to be out! If you want a great romance suspense this is one for you.

Description from goodreads :

 Quinn Sutherland, second in command of the Tribe, a group of powerful telepaths, has always been certain of who and what he is — one of the good guys. All he wants is to keep his friends safe — no easy feat when everyone in the world is after them. While on a rescue mission, he meets a mysterious FBI agent, who appears to know a lot about them, and seems to want the same thing he does. But her assignment could literally mean the death of him…


When Melody Lyons is inducted into the Federation’s elite Time Control Unit, it’s the pinnacle of her ambitions. Only when she’s sent back to the twenty-first century to eliminate a group of rogue time travelers, she never guesses she’ll fall for a man who died two thousand years ago… Quinn awakens emotions she hadn’t known existed, and for the first time, her loyalties are tested.



My opinion:
          Facinating!!! i really loved this book it follow the series completely so it's really better read in order but could catch the interest even if you are new to the series thanks to the  info given to secondary characters that creates the whole background story we need to understand the story. It was captivating!
Quinn is a character i love; he is honest and really a good soul so all the treachery really hit him hard. He is dedicated to keep his friends safe but with enemies turning allies and the opposite it's getting harder and harder.
When he meets Mel, he does think she is from the good side and while he want to trust her the fact he can't  get into her mind make him doubt he can while the attraction is more than present....

Melody is a hard working woman, she did all she could to achieve her dreams and she succeeded so following the rules are capital for her but while meeting Quinn she discovers feelings, forgotten in the future, and the rules.....to save him she is willing to go against them if necessary.

I really loved to continue the series and we go deeper in the story each time....this time we learn more about the past and about the future and if it get confusing for the characters i admit it can also be the case for the reader so many possibilities or consequences...hard to know what should be done or not but we do enjoy the ride a lot^^

The rhythm is perfect, we meet or learn about precedent characters so the links isn't broken, it's a rollercoaster of emotions and really  it was perfect only the cliffhanger at the end was a bit too hard for me^^ so i can't wait for next book that won't be released soon enough i fear^^

Score:  4/5

In the Lawman 's protection ( Omega sector: under siege 6) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,


                2018 does not seem to be my year with how life keep interfering in my plans to give me more troubles...nothing i won't survive but i admit reading about strong characters can be a good motivation for not giving up.

Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on the 6th book in the Omega sector: under siege series by Janie Crouch....i still haven't gotten book3 (i sure hope i will soon) but i have loved all the rest of the series and this finale is quite the top! i couldn't have hoped for a better story to add to this series.

But enough teasing and let see that in more details. Happy Reading!

Description from goodreads :

  An agent will do anything to take down a terrorist.

Even if that means using a woman as his weapon.

To locate a terrorist, Ren McClement must find the criminal’s “dead” wife Natalie. His plan: use the innocent beauty as bait. But when his duplicity leads them into grave danger, Ren reveals his secret to Natalie...and his passion for her. Will furious Natalie be able to forgive his lie? And will they get to the mastermind before he unleashes mass destruction?




My opinion:
          Ren is a fantastic character, we learned about him a little before in the series but  he has a complex personality and his life is full of mysteries since he spent most of it undercover. I really enjoyed learning more about him and to see him act as well....he is really the perfect match for someone like Nathalie

Nathalie has fear deeply set in her bones...beside psychological  trauma, her body as well as her psyche show the traces of Damien torture.... she took the opportunity she saw to flee but she never felt free always terrified he would find her again....but no matter how much she suffered...deep inside she is still a good person, she shows compassion and when she can help other she does...it's really telling how courageous she is.

This story was all i wanted it to be...there was tension, moments where i cried, moments where i laughed all together with the Damien arc coming to an end and while i love this series it was really time for him to meet his fate and for the rest of the characters to be able to breathe a little...
It was a page turner from the beginning and if this could work as a standalone i prefer to recommend you to read it in order so you have a deeper insight of what the characters have suffered to help understand how far they are willing to go to succeed. It's said they suffered yes but it's it's too light explanation for what they really endured so this series is better read in order for sure.

It's a great romance with a excellent dose of suspense so i recommend it without any hesitation or doubt!

Score:  5/5

Hello to all,

 it's by a sunny sunday that i have the great pleasure to announce you that  yes the final book of the Sentinel of New Orleans arc is out!!
There isn't a thing i hate more than having a series unfinished so we can be really grateful that the author decided to publish it to offer us a little closure ...yes we waited but it was more than worth it as the series get the story of the same quality or one even better as it dserves it.

So i won't be much longer but first a little note: if you haven't started the series yet or if you are missing some books just keep you eyes on the author blog some great opportunities will blossom extra soon. ( check that here)

Now...the story, happy reading!!

Description from goodreads :

 The uneasy truce between the preternatural species of New Orleans has shattered, with wizards and elves, shifters and vampires—not to mention the historical undead—struggling for ultimate control of the city, including the humans who still think they’re atop the food chain.

They aren’t, however—and the Summer Prince of Faerie wants them to know it.

Stuck in the middle? One unemployed wizard sentinel. For DJ Jaco, war makes for strange bedfellows as she finally embraces her wizard-elven heritage and strikes a deal with the devil so she and her ragtag band of allies can return to defend her hometown. After all, when the undead French pirate Jean Lafitte is working in the mayor’s tourism department, things could go horribly wrong.

War is coming to New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras, with the elves and wizards lined up on opposite sides, the shifters with a new leader, the vampires promising loyalty to the highest bidder, and the soul of the Crescent City resting on the outcome of the civil war going on in Faerie between the rival princes of summer and winter.

Mardi Gras Day is approaching fast, the faeries have infiltrated almost every parade, and the line between friends and enemies grows thin as DJ tries to stave off open warfare on the St. Charles Avenue parade route.

Laissez les bons temps rouler…but be careful, or the good times might roll too close for comfort. 


My opinion:
          Fabulous, a rollercoaster for emotions as once the story picks up there isn't a slow moment left there will be tears, there will be touching moment, there will be some humorous one and some very angsty ones. We are immersed in an adventure that doesn't allow us a reprieve we must know what will happen and we better not get interrupted for nothing ^^;;

We sure waited to get  the end of Dj adventures in this arc  but it was so, so well worth it... a real page turner with old characters we meet again with pleasure  like some fae hunters ( love faulkner) new one  like Gruff a so cute and funny corgi but so much more and i don't want to spoil too much . But get some tissues near you will need them and the little Corgi isn't the only one who will win you over i'm sure like Pen who can make you swoon or laugh depending on his menu.

Really this was a great read, we get to see how the events impacted the characters and how some got more mature and some not. There are twists to keep us on edge and this story couldn't be a better way to end this arc ( because yes i certainly hope to see more of the gang but rest assured there isn't a cliffhanger or questions unanswered ( at least not any that can't wait a full novella^^)

So yes it's better to have read the series to enjoy this one fully  and i can't recommend you this series strong enough but that being said it should be possible to read this one like that as we get enough info about the background to understand most of what happen but you if have teh opportunity to start by book 1 don't hesitate it just get better and better.

Score:  5/5
