Review: Blood Cross by Faith Hunter

 Publication Date: January, 2010

Pages: 321
Reviewer: Amber R.




I have noticed lately that I really love the second book in a series more than I like the first one. And this series is exactly the same. And I really, really liked the first book. But this book was so much better than the first one.

Jane is still on contract with the vamps in New Orleans. Although the head of the city, Leo is out to get her for killing his "son". It wasn't really his son, it was some creepy vamp doppelganger. Poor Leo knows that it wasn't really his son but he's totally vamped out in grief and he can't get over it. So Jane has Leo on her case...sometimes. Not too mention she's still working to find the rogue vampires who are turning people randomly. It turns out that a string of missing witch kids might be connected to this vampire.

Jane is completely bad ass. There is nothing about her that isn't bad ass. I love the exchanges between her and Beast. They crack me up and make me laugh so hard. Although Jane and Beast are one and the same, I really need to point out that Beast is awesome too. Beast has a strong pull in this book and I really loved finding more out about Jane's past.

There is a bit of a love triangle. But not really. I am usually 100% against any type of love triangle but I really don't feel like this is a real one. Jane does have 2 love interests in this book. Rick who is a NOPD detective and Bruiser who is Leo's blood servant and it seems like he's his right hand man. Although Bruiser is a bit of enigma. Anyhow, there's really no competition between these two. It's all very mature and Jane has heat with both of them. As of the end of this book she's more with Rick but I'm rooting for Bruiser, the entire way. I just feel like they have more of a heat together and I personally think Bruiser is way sexier. So we'll see with that.

This book was awesome over all. It's definitely fast moving and really intense. There were so many parts of this book where I was legitimately tearing up. So many things happened that were absolutely insane and completely unforeseen that happened. It was one of those moments when I was done with this book that I immediately wanted to move on to the next book in this series. This series is absolutely amazing so far and if you haven't read this yet you definitely need too.











Review: Unleash by Felicity Heaton

Its finally here, Snow's story! I was so so excited to get my hands on this. I have loved Snow from the first time I saw him and was just waiting for his story to come out. It was well worth the wait!

I wasn't sure how Felicity was going to pull this off. Snow seemed difficult to pull off a love story for. I just couldn't imagine some random girl coming into his life and them falling madly deeply in love. But I really did not have to worry because Felicity obviously knew what she was doing. She brought in someone from Snows past and brought these two together perfectly.

We delve deep into Snow's horrible past. We get up and close and personal with his nightmares. It was gut wrenching to see but to overcome his past we really did need to face it. Snow is just a total mess. He is suffering from blood lust and just thinks he is totally unworthy of anything even life. But we can see there is more to him then that and when Aurora comes back into the picture she actually shows him. Aurora and Snow are tied together in a lot of ways. She was the perfect heroine for him. She is an Angel who is not going to give up on this man. She pushed him to fight for his life.

We also get to see all the couples from the series, even the babies. There is an epic fight scene at the end where they are all fighting for their lives and trying to protect each other. But we all know my favorite parts are with Snow and Aurora getting it on. I loved seeing this damaged vampire come out of his shell and prove to us that there is so much good in him. It was an amazing story. I have been eagerly waiting for this for a while and was afraid that all this build up that I might be let down, but that just wasn't the case. Snow's story was amazing, even better then I expected!

Steampunk: It's what the past would look like if it collided with the future.


One of the things I love most about the genre are the endless possibilities. If you can imagine it, then you can write it. Particularly since my London Steampunk series is set loosely in the time period we call the Victorian Era. It was a time of so much industrial and cultural changes that it's such ripe pickings for a writer.

For me, I came at steampunk from historical romance and an idea that derived from the ton. But imagine if the ton was a darker, dangerous world? Where aristocrats stalked debutantes for their blood? Where debutantes sought to make a respectable thrall contract with a blue blood lord; offering their blood privileges in exchange for protection and every comfort a young woman could desire.

Such absolute power often breeds contempt, and humans are considered little more than a cattle class. In order to protect themselves from the masses, the blue bloods of my Echelon turned to technology. And it might just be the very thing that destroys them...

Into this world comes Lena Todd, a flirtatious young debutante who is only just realising that the world she remembers from her youth, isn't the brightly made stuff of daydreams.

Here's a little scene from Heart of Iron, the second in my London Steampunk series, featuring Lena and the mysterious heart of a secret organisation looking to bring the Echelon down:

Dark shadows waited silently, the faint gleam of lantern light shining off cold steel. Rosalind lifted the lantern and stepped through, spilling light into the enormous cavern and chasing away the shadows. Dozens of enormous automatons sat still and silent, the spark of gaslight absent from their eyes. Dozens more of the metal suits that Rollins had been strapped into. Rows of Percy’s.
“These are the Cyclops.” Pride warmed the other woman’s voice and she handed the lantern to Lena.  Stepping forward she ran a hand over the hydraulic hose of the heavy steel arm. The hollow tube of the flamethrower on its arm gleamed.
Leaning under the arm, Rosalind hit a button. With a hiss, the chest cavity opened and the head slid back revealing a hollow space wide enough to fit a man. Rosalind stepped up on the Cyclops’s bent knee and hopped into the cavity. Turning around, she eased back and slid a leather harness around her chest and waist. Two handles rested at arm height. She gripped them, pressing a number of levers and twisting a dial. The steel carapace of the chest slid back into place, a thrumming sound coming from deep within.
“Takes a few minutes to heat the boiler packs,” Rosalind explained, her small, heart-shaped face peering over the top of the chest piece. With an expression of concentration, she toyed with something inside and then the hydraulic hoses hissed, the Cyclops straightening to its full height of ten feet. “They’re fully mobile, with more flexibility and control than a metaljacket and run on a litre of water a day.” With a sudden smile, she forced the arm to lift. “We modelled the flamethrowers on the spitfire’s. Burns like buggery when you hit something with it.” The fingers on the end of the iron arm gave a wiggle, revealing complete dexterity. “Mech work,” Rosalind explained. “The whole thing is mech work.”
“That’s why you need the mechs.” 
Rosalind grimaced and the Cyclops sank back down, its engines fading. She slung the steel chest plate open and hopped down. “Aye. The plans were ours.” A brief look in her direction. “But the work’s theirs.” A rusty laugh. “The Echelon forced them into the enclaves to work steel for them and earn out the repayment of their mech enhancements. Not once did they suspect we’d turn their own technology – the skills they taught the mechs – against them. It’s the one thing we humans have never been able to counter. We might have been able to overwhelm the blue bloods in France and put them to the guillotine, but our blue bloods are smarter and hide behind automaton armies. Human flesh can’t fight metal. So we must even the odds.”
“To fight for freedom,” Lena said, with a slightly sarcastic lilt. “It sounds remarkably like fighting for revenge.”
“Do you think the Echelon are simply going to turn around and give us our rights?” A hint of anger stirred Rosalind’ voice. “Perhaps if we ask nicely?”
“People are going to die.”
“They already do. Four hundred and thirty men and women took to the streets to protest against the latest hike in the blood taxes. The Echelon mowed them down with the Trojan cavalry, leaving barely a hundred alive.”
“They wouldn’t have raised the blood taxes if the draining factories hadn’t exploded. Now there’s a shortage and the Echelon need blood fast. Don’t you see? This becomes a cycle of blood and death!”
Rosalind jerked the lantern out of Lena’s hands. “I’m disappointed. I thought you would understand. Especially considering where the plans for the Cyclops came from.”
“What do you mean by that?”

HEART OF IRON BY BEC MCMASTER – IN STORES MAY 2013
In the mist-shrouded streets of London’s dreaded Whitechapel district, werewolves, vampires and a clockwork army are one step away from battle…


NO ONE TO TRUST…
Lena Todd is the perfect spy. Nobody suspects the flirtatious debutante could be a rebel against London’s vicious elite—not even the ruthless Will Carver, the one man she can’t twist around her little finger.

Will Carver, is more than man, he’s a verwulfen and he wants nothing to do with the dangerous beauty who drives him to the very edge of control. But when he finds Lena in possession of a coded letter, he realizes she’s in a world of trouble. To protect her, he’ll have to seduce the truth from her before it’s too late.

“Deftly blends elements of steampunk and vampire romance with brilliantly successful results…darkly atmospheric and delectably sexy.”Booklist, starred review for KISS OF STEEL

I love Esteps adult series (The Elemental Assassin) and have been meaning to get into these books for a while now. I decided to start with this short intro book to see what it was all about, and I must say I think I am going to love it! Even though this was a short read only 30 pages, I already want more. I should have known I would love this, its Jennifer Estep we are talking about.

We see what events lead up to Gwen going to Mythos Academy. Which some of those events almost made me cry and one that started it all was just awful. I wonder if we will see more of Paige in other books.  I can't wait to get into a full length novel. Just from the brief glimpse of Logan I am already like I love him. But we will see how that all plays out. Gwen seems like a great character and one I am excited to get to know more. Since this is such a short read there isn't too much to say. If you are thinking about starting this series this is a great place to start. I am not sure if I would pay .99 cents for a short read (I am really cheap) but getting it from my library was great. I will definitely be grabbing the next book to this series fast!

I really can't get over how much I love this series. The first two books were slam dunks for me and this one was no different. It's been a few months after the last book and Griffin, Emily, Sam, Finley, and Jasper are all back in England. However there has been some trouble since they've come back. Griffin hasn't really been himself and he's literally withering away in front of their eyes and no one, not even Finley, can break through the barriers that he's put up.

Jack Dandy shows up at the house with some really interesting information. He was involved in a situation where there was a very human like automaton delivered to the docks. For what purpose, is unknown but since Griffin and the crew are always in the middle of these types of things, he figured he could pass along the information. Finley and Emily go investigate after some earnest complaints from the guys about them going alone. While nothing happens at the time, things quickly escalate from there. Emily is kidnapped by the group of automatons for none other than the Machinist. Even though he's not technically alive, there is definitely some creepy business going on. Obviously everyone is on the hunt to save Emily.

I love seeing the progression of all these characters. Seriously, it's awesome. This story is so well developed and intricate. It really feels like you're in the book and involved with the characters. Kady Cross literally puts you in the story, you feel like you're right in the middle of everything. I loved seeing Griffin and Finley work things out and grow together and grow individually as well. You really get the idea that they're both really trying and they're both such good people. Same really goes for Em and Same too. They really come together and it's just so sweet to see happen.

I'm in love with these books and I can not wait for the next book in this amazing series. Yes, I realize that this one just came out but I really just need more. If you guys haven't read this series yet, you definitely need too.. It's absolutely amazing.

 





Review: A Stroke of Midnight by Laurell K. Hamilton

Friday, May 24, 2013
Series: Merry Gentry #4
 Publication Date: November, 2006
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Pages: 416
 Reviewer: Amber R.


I really liked the last book in this series and this book picks up right where Seduced by Moonlight left off. Merry and her guards are doing a press conference to deal with the issues from the last book. While at the press conference a double murder happens and Merry is bound and determined to figure out what happened and who the murderer is.

Although the investigation is going on, there are more pressing issues like Merry getting pregnant. So there is plenty of banging going on. And she keeps getting more and more people added to her roster of possible baby daddies. As she has sex with more and more people the powers that have come to fruition keep growing as well. There is more and more happening that is hard for some in faerie to believe because these things haven't been happening in literally forever. Along with all of these things there have been several more assassination attempts.

The entirety of this book is less than one day. And I have to say that I really don't enjoy that. Things are just dragging out and on for no reason it seems. At least at this point anyhow. We do get some closer looks at Andais, the Queen and what she's really up to. She definitely does not like the fact that Merry is becoming more powerful. However, she realizes that Merry could bring life to the Unseelie..so she mostly reins her temper in. But she is the queen and she is bat shit crazy so someone is getting their entrails ripped out, luckily it's just not Merry.

I don't know. I like these books but I kind of don't. I wish they progressed a bit faster. I mean, if it was two days in one book rather than just one day, I'm sure I would be happy. I like the characters mostly but I'm getting burned out on all of the sex, all of the time. But I still am interested in what's going to happen next. I'm just afraid if the books continue going at such a slow pace that my interest is going to fall.

What a perfect ending to this series. Once the story gets started its just full of action. Josephine really packs in a whole lot for the final conclusion. I loved it! I don't want to give too much away but if you have read the other two books you must read this. Even if you are like me and didn't love Dreamless. Goddess totally made up for that.

 Love Triangle:
I LOVED Starcrossed and well I liked Dreamless but I was pretty upset with the whole love triangle angle. I am just so sick of those. I am really glad that in Goddess we weren't strung along for it. But I will admit I did cheat and peak at the ending because if Helen didn't end up with the guy I loved, I was going to walk away. I am so in love with the one character that I couldn't be okay if they didn't end up together, or if Helen had hurt him too much. I hardly ever peak at the ending but I really had to know. Anyways Goddess was an amazing read, especially after I knew it was going to end well for me.

Helen's Mom:
I hate hate hate her. I am glad at how things ended up with her and even though Helen hopes she has a happily ever after, I really hope that she doesn't. She was a scheming horrible person and that is all I will say about her.

Side Characters:
I loved Hector! He is one of my favorites. He is strong and noble and awesome. There was part in the book with him that I was in tears. The others like Cassandra, Jason and all them where awesome too. I must say though that Claire, Matt and Ari really upset me in this. I know Helen is forgiving but not me. They really made me mad.

The Starcrossed series started with a bang and ended with  a bang. I am so glad I picked this series up. I am really going to miss the characters but I feel like it had a great ending. If you love starcrossed lovers and Greek mythology then you are totally going to want to pick up this series.

#AAD Author Spotlight: Sahara Kelly

Wednesday, May 22, 2013
 Sahara Kelly


Hi Amber - thanks so much for inviting me.

Please Introduce yourself to our readers?
I've been writing (as Sahara Kelly) for a dozen years or so, focusing on erotic romance and erotic fiction. Although my first novel was published over 25 years ago, that was a sweet Regency under another name, and I was about to give birth to my son when it was accepted. Needless to say, motherhood came first, so there was a "little" hiatus before I got back into writing. Now? I'm overjoyed to be doing what I love. I have around sixty or so titles out there, with more to come (I hope!!).
Can you tell us a little about the world you've created?
I've created more than a few of 'em. LOL  I'm sort of an all-purpose writer and I flit from genre to genre within the erotic romance field. I guess I get tired of too much of one thing. I love the Regency, of course. But I also enjoy contemporaries (especially with my co-writer for some of them, S.L. Carpenter). I've written medievals, ancient historicals, science fiction, steampunk, cyberpunk,  vampires and...oh yes...fantasies. And a couple that really sort of defy description. LOL  And I love them all!!

What are you most excited about at AADSAV?
AAD is a truly unique experience - and for me, sharing so much one-on-one time with readers is an absolute joy! Writing is a solo job, no two ways about it. Even with today's social media, actually interacting with readers for more than a few emails...well, I don't get as much chance as I'd like to do that. AAD stresses that it's a reader-oriented event. I learned how true that was when I attended my first one in Philadelphia. I couldn't go last year, but this year? I wouldn't miss Savannah for anything.

Any authors you are excited to meet?
All of 'em. LOL Many are now friends, after my decade plus in this business. So it will be great to touch base with those I have missed at previous conventions or who've been on different parts of the "circuit". I haven't seen my buddy Dakota Cassidy in far too long...it'll be huge to hear her wonderful laugh again!!! I've also missed fellow Brit Rosemary Laurey...looking forward to a nice chat and a cuppa. LOL

Tell us about your latest release?
Right now I'm celebrating a re-release... one of my earliest and favorite series, Time Guardians. Three books, one theme but three different genres. (Yeah, it should have had a scorecard. LOL) But I'm thrilled that when I offered book 1 for free, it shot into the top ten of Erotic romance/fantasies over at Amazon, and as of this writing it's still there. That one (My Wish) is a menage, the second (My Prize) a time-travel/sci fi, and the third (My Hero) a contemporary murder mystery.  All special books for me and I'm so happy to be able to self-publish them and get them out into the hands of a whole new readership!  Plus I have a new print book out - BEHIND CLOSED DOORS - which is an anthology of stories from S.L. Carpenter and myself. Also self published! We're hoping to do a lot of signing this year. LOL
*[I should also mention that S.L. Carpenter isn't only my writing partner, he's also my business partner. He and I have formed a small company to provide all kinds of art/graphics/design services for writers and others. It's called P and N Graphics and we're nearing our first anniversary after a very successful kickoff year. Art is something we're both passionate about, in addition to writing. Just a couple of creative crazies, I guess. LOL]

Any restaurants in Savannah you plan on hitting up? (I would love to know, I want some ideas for myself)
Right now, I haven't really researched restaurants too much. Savannah has been on my "list" of places to see ever since I read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", and to be able to stay there? It's a dream come true. I plan on digging around for information on all things Savannah, but I need to get a bit closer to August or I'll lose my notes, for sure. LMAO

Are planning on dressing up for any of the balls?
Um...well, yes. Ask my friends and they'll tell you I'm a costume freak. Gimme a hat and a fan and I'm SO Downton Abbey. ;)  It's so much fun at AAD to be one of the Steampunk Tea author sponsors (late Victorian costume, hat, underbust corset I think, and cool white batiste, with suitable embellishments!). I'm also one of the Riverboat Cruise sponsors. For that one...well, I'm almost leaning toward hoops and Southern Belles, but that costume is still under development. I'm lucky in that I sew, which opens a few more doors for me. But overall, I'm never happier than swanning around a fancy hotel in a glamorous ball gown, or faery wings, or saloon girl fishnets... LOLLOL (I'm told it's called a delayed Barbie complex or something.)

Any sites you plan on seeing while in Savannah?
Anything and everything I can. LOL  Again, I'm going to have to really study up on what to see - and how to fit sightseeing in between the time I want to spend talking with fellow attendees. It's going to be a juggling act, I think, but one I'm very much looking forward to. If only Savannah will be nice and not TOO hot, I'll be one happy writer come August!!! Or I can figure out how to fit a couple of small fans under that hooped skirt...  LMAO

Hope to meet some of your readers there - and thanks to everyone at AwesomeSauce Books. Especially you, Amber, for such great questions.

See you in Savannah!!!





My Wish
Alana West isn't expecting to have great sex anytime soon. But the two genies who magically appear in her bed have other ideas and when they inform her of their mission - to help her expand her sexuality - well, hell. What's a girl to do? Yep, enjoy every minute of it. But never forget that Alana is a devious and clever gal who is likely to change things around a bit…catching everyone by surprise.



My Prize
He's a twelfth century Scottish Laird on the eve of what he knows will be his final battle. Then he receives a spectral offer - life, but in another place and another time. Thus Laird Rory McAllen finds himself with the fate of the Universe in his hands, along with his broadsword and a beautiful Intergalactic lawyer on her way to compete in the Sexual Olympiad on Frallien IV. Can they defeat the villains, save the known Galaxy and find true love? Oh hell, yeah!

If you love the Lux series but like me you are an adult and kinda wanted more well her you go. And holy hell JLA has out done herself. I think this my favorite book ever written by her. I loved this book, words will not give this book justice. I love Jennifer's YA series and so I wasn't sure what to expect here but man oh man she did an amazing job. Watch out Daemon because I think I am more in love with Hunter!

Hunter is just hot. He is that sexy alpha male. He is a bad ass. He isn't sweet and cuddly. He is an arrogant bad ass and I love him. He has a lot of Daemon like qualities but we get to see him naked. ;) He is also an Arum and what we know of most Arum they are evil. Which most still are but we see there are a few good guys.Serena was awesome. She is feisty and even though she needs Hunter to protect her she isn't a damsel in distress granted she does make a few dumb decisions. But she doesn't let Hunter boss her around (unless its in the bedroom) and she excepts Hunter and all his darkness.

Not only is this book sexy its a great story. Serena accidentally got caught up in alien politics (no the book doesn't call it that, its just me) Hunter is there to do his job and protect her. We see more of behind the scenes of the DOD and see that Arum and Lux are not always the good or bad guys. But we all know my favorite part was the sexual chemistry and watching these two get it on!

We do get to see a some characters from the Lux series. Maybe not a whole lot of the one we are all dying to see but we do see him. We get a feeling for what is going to happen in Origin too. I think you could read this book without having read the Lux series but I think people who have read that series will definitely love this so much! Like I said before I can't even explain my love for this book, its just so freaking amazing! I never thought I would love books with aliens in it but Jennifer's aliens are just too damn sexy not to love, and Hunter is brings sexy to a whole new level. I hope we see more of him soon.

 Publication Date: October, 2010

Pages: 472
Reviewer: Amber R.



I took some time since Shift to read this book because Faythe infuriates me and this book was absolutely no different.

The whole thing with Jace and Marc was throughout the entire book. And I'm just like, "HOW DUMB IS SHE?" Now I'm not going to lie, I was glad in the end but really? REALLY? Was all of that crap necessary? Up until she boned Jace, he was just another enforcer in the Pride. He barely even registered on her radar and now she's randomly in love with him? Ugh. Whatever, Faythe.

She really stepped up to the plate in this book though...meaning in everything else BESIDES what happened with Marc and Jace. She really takes being an enforcer seriously, she really tries to do her best for her Pride and for her family. I felt like you could really see her coming into her own in the last book and that definitely came to the forefront in this book. Especially after the major fight that happened.

This series has brought forth some strong feelings in me. I take that as a good sign that books were good. If a book can make you feel that much, the author is doing something right. I was so heartbroken throughout this book. I just really couldn't believe what was happening. I have to admit that the archaic views and practices of the council in these books really ticked me off. I'm glad that the series is over though. I'm glad I don't have to get worked up over Faythe anymore. She is the one and only heroine that I've read about this far that I've loved to hate.

Finley and her group of talented friends are on the hunt of a lifetime. They've flown across the ocean to America to search out Jasper, a friend of Griffin, who was taken away in handcuffs under the suspicion of murder. None of them really think that Jasper has the capability of murdering anyone. So they set off to find out the truth.

But when they get to America things aren't quite what they seem. Turns out Jasper wasn't taken by the authorities but by a criminal! Reno Dalton is from San Francisco where he met up and worked with Jasper for a while before Jasper realized that Dalton was a seriously bad dude. In hopes of getting away from Dalton and keeping Dalton away from his family and loved ones, when Jasper left his gang he stole and dismantled this tool that Dalton coveted. He also hid the parts all over New York City in order for Dalton to never be able to find them.

When Finley and the crew get to New York, Finley immediately comes up with a plan to get in with Dalton. There are a bunch of underground fights that take place, so what does the girl who is crazy strong do? She joins the fights to win..to get Dalton to notice her and it definitely works. He immediately asks her to join the ranks. And she's able to get in to try to help Jasper get out. But it's not that easy because Dalton has something or rather someone to hold over Jasper, Mei. Mei is Jasper's love from San Fran and Dalton is using her to keep Jasper in line.

I really am loving all these characters. Griffin, Emily, Sam, Finley, and Jasper are the main group and they're all awesome. Emily and Sam kind of have a blossoming relationship and so do Griffin and Finley but those two are so stubborn. I love seeing Griffin and Finley become closer. Honestly, I love all the moments in this book that they all seem to get closer together and the characters become more in depth. I'm really loving these steampunk books, this is the second in this series and it's just as awesome of the first.

Each book brings in a new couple and in this book we have Nolan a doctor,a lion shifter who is sexy and maybe naps too much, he also has an over bearing mother, oh and waayy to many hair products. We also have Clarice a falcon shifter a strong willed, takes no crap kinda girl. They seem like complete opposites but even they can't deny their sexual chemistry for long.

Nolan is pretty spoiled. He really does take too long on his hair but he is a caring doctor so it kinda makes up for his pretty boy issues. I guess its not his fault about being spoiled. His mother wants to take care of her only son and populate The Pride. I really loved his mom. Yes she is over bearing and she sends tigers to kidnap her son so they can make some babies but she is funny. And her and Clarice are great together. The puns never stop with those too. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like Clarice. She was to rough around the edges. But of coarse as she softened so did I.

Clarice is there from ASS agency to help the FUC agency track down these mutant shifters that are out of control. With Nolan being a target, Clarice has to watch his back all the time. Which is good for us because Nolan puts on the charm and of coarse Clarice couldn't resist.I loved the sexual tension and I loved it more when they both succumbed to their passion.

Lion and The Falcon was a great addition to the FUC series. Its sexy and funny and I can't wait for more. I loved seeing some of our old couples. If you are looking for something to make you laugh and also turn up the heat then please check out this series!
