From Hel, With Love (XIII Hour, #1)

From Hel with Love - Blue Remy ARC review of “From Hel, With Love”With a writing style similar to that of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Blue Remy’ s “From Hel, with love” brings together a world of Demon, Daemon, and Fae to paint a magical picture of the paranormal that exists among us. In the heart of New Orleans, just off Bourbon Street, is The Club, a hardcore club ran by Raven Aquilis the keeper of the 9 gates. When a demon of Raven’s realm is killed in a ritualistic style, the human world, in the form of Duncan O’Brien head of the Regional Investigation of Paranormal Agency, and the Demon world collide. It’s Raven’s duty to keep the demons of her realm safe, and in doing so keep herself safe, but it makes Duncan an unavoidable necessity. However, Duncan is irresistible for more reasons than that one. A unique dark fantasy world, an undeniable attraction, and colorful side characters all combine to make From Hel, with love a can’t-miss-must-read. I can’t wait for book two of the series.

Lover Reborn (Black Dagger Brotherhood Series #10)

Lover Reborn - J.R Ward I'm sooo excited and ready for Lover at Last now that I am finally finished with Tohr's book. I cried and I got mad but this was an awesome book. I felt torn all the way through and it took me an extremely long time to finish this book because I just couldn't make myself feel as if it was time for him. I felt as if Wellsie just died and although I didn't want to see him suffer any longer it seemed so wrong for him to be with someone new. All of those things aside, I loved this book as much as I love all of J.R. Ward's books. I did have a hard time feeling attached to Tohr. He was in pain but I also love when one of the brothers becomes obsessed by one single woman. I was also intrigued by the side story of Layla and her unintentional/unwanted attraction to one of the Band of Bastards. In addition to Lover at Last, I'd love to see Lassiter's book because he's too yummy.

Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood, Book 12)

Deadlocked - Charlaine Harris I love Sookie and Charlaine Harris let me lead with that. This book had a couple of spots that made me chuckle, and I cried like I always do with each book in this series, but man I really thought there wasn't anyone left to betray Sookie. I'm only giving it four stars for two reasons, there was no romance to the story and I found myself skipping pages where every detail of her day was described. There were several descriptions of Sookie checking the mail. Despite those two things, this book was still good and I felt a few things were resolved. I know where I want her to end up now I kind of wish she'd get there already, but of course I'll be reading along until she does.

Haiku in the Night

Haiku in the Night - Ben Ditmars, Jon Konrath I say every time that I review poetry, that it is subjective, but this author always brings tears to my eyes with the heartfelt honesty of his words. Haiku in the Night is another win.

Custodian of the Luima Legacy

Custodian of the Luima Legacy - Gabrielle Poplar ~4.5 Stars~ I'm always impressed by an author that can create an entire world the way this author has managed to with "Custodian of the Luima Legacy". World building, imagery, and character development truly come into play when taking on such a huge project. I was concerned when I read the description that I might not be able to follow along. However, after downloading the sample and reading the prologue, I knew that I had to give this one a try. I wasn't disappointed. When Fastian heads to Bahadi he takes along his ward, Meryl. The Luima are holding a test for natural abilities. Meryl gives it a shot and turns out to be very powerful, so he heads off to Jodi Island for further training. At school, Meryl finds himself at a disadvantage in some areas since this new direction for his life was unexpected, but his natural skills shine through winning over a few.
