Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers

Goodreads Summary:

In this final installment of the thrilling, edgy Personal Demons series, the battle between Heaven and Hell has become critical, and Frannie Cavanaugh is right at the center of it.

With the help of the powerful angel Gabe and demon-turned-mortal Luc, Frannie has been able to stay one step ahead of the forces of Hell. But when the demons killed Frannie's best friend and destroyed her brother, they raised the stakes. If Frannie wants to keep her family and friends safe, she knows she has no choice but to go on the run.

Their best defense is the power Frannie has been struggling to master, but her attempts to hone her skill go horribly awry. If Frannie doesn't learn fast, the consequences could be devastating--even apocalyptic.

What happens when you can't outrun Hell...or trust the ones you love?

My Review:
Last Rite was the conclusion to this series. And it was awesome! The story took so many crazy turns that I never saw coming! Both Gabe and Luc struggle with their feelings for Frannie and trying to the the right thing. Frannie's family also played a much bigger role in this book and it was nice to see. Some big decisions were made here and not everyone survives!

Like I said both Gabe and Luc are struggling with their feelings for Frannie. They are torn between doing the right thing to keep her safe and having broken hearts. This left me yelling at the book at both of them when they were being stupid boys! AH! So frustrating. Because it usually ended up with everyone feeling bad and heartbroken! I don't want to ruin the story by saying who she ends up with so you will just have to read it to find out!

I really enjoyed how Frannie's family played a bigger role in this story. They were awesome characters! Maggie and Grace proved to be very interesting. Faith was also a really good character. I felt so bad for her! Especially at the end.

The ending of this story will blow your mind! It was such a perfect ending. I couldn't have been happier! I am sad to see the series end but, I guess all good things come to an end. This was such a good series, I would recommend it to anyone!

Wishlist Wednesday #9

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly post put on by Dani at the Pen to Paper blog. Where you post a book you really really want to read or one that has been on your wishlist! If you've seen my to-read list on Goodreads then you know there are plenty that I could use. So I decided to use this feature every Wednesday.

Title: The Rising
Author: Kelley Armstrong
Release Date: April 2013
Series Number: 3

Summary from Authors site:

Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the St. Clouds and a rival Cabal, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting out of control.

But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she’ll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.

My Thoughts:
The Rising is part of the Darkness Rising Trilogy. It is a spin off of Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series which is one of my favorite series of all time! I know that this one doesn't come out for quite some time but, I love the first two books and can't wait for it to come out. I have a soft spot for these books because the Darkest Powers series was one of the first ones I read and I have read them numerous times. The Darkness Rising series is similar but, with different characters with different powers. It should be very interesting to see where this one goes!

Bane (Vampire Apocalypse #1) by H.M. Ward

Goodreads Summary:
The world as we know it is gone. The ice caps have melted and shifted south, devastating the northern territories and eradicating major cities such as New York and London, which are now under water and frozen.

Humans died off during an epidemic prior to the ice disaster, and many more died during the floods at the start of this new ice age. These events have forced vampires out of hiding. In order to ensure that their food source wouldn't completely die off, the vampires have sequestered the remaining humans into farms and taken control of all that remains of civilization. Over time, the humans breeding on these farms became anemic. Their blood no longer sustains the master race.

But not all of the humans were captured and sent to the farms. Some of the humans evaded the hunters, hiding in safe houses across the frozen tundra. As decades passed, the free humans disappeared, died, or were captured, until all that remains is one.

Kahli is the last wild human. BANE is her story.

My Review:
Bane kind of took me by surprise. It was completely different from any kind of vampire story I have ever read. The whole concept of the apocalypse is awesome then you throw in vampires and it makes it an even more amazing story. Kahli is probably one of my favorite female characters. She's strong and independent and can definitely survive on her own. She has a will to survive like no one I have ever read about. The concept of the Bane was really unique too. I would love to learn more about them!

Will is a very interesting character. He has a lot of secrets that young man. I am really curious to see what is going to happen with him. I have a few theories but, this book was unpredictable so I could be completely wrong! I also really enjoyed Cassie. She was a high spirited person and it was nice in such a dark place for humans.

This was probably one of my favorite books of this year so far. It was unique and I really liked that. It kept me on the edge of my seat and also left enough secrets to make the next book a MUST READ! So many questions left unanswered. Waiting to see what will happen next will be hard for me! So pick this one up people it looks like a very promising start to a new series!

Title: Cursed
Author: Jennifer Armentrout
Release Date: September 18, 2012
Series Number: 1

Goodreads Summary: 

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.

My thoughts:
Jennifer Armentrout is probably one of my favorite authors. I will read anything she writes at this point haha! this book sounds amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on it! It sounds like a different kind of paranormal story and I am good with new ideas haha!

Madly and the Jackal by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:

How deep does love run? Deeper than the ocean? Deeper than memory? Deeper than magic?

Following their plan to save Atlas, Madly and Jackson return the spirit of Wolfhardt to his prison beneath the sea. But even the best laid plans couldn’t account for the surprises they find. This time, Lore aren’t their only challenges. 

Madly is special in ways no one could have guessed and dark forces seek to control her. They want her power, but first they must weaken her. They need her beaten. Vulnerable. Near death. And alone. But that task isn’t an easy one with Jackson at her side. The strongest of their kind, the only way to separate Jackson from Madly is to destroy his love for her, to erase it from his mind. And his heart. 

Is it possible to steal Jackson’s love from Madly? Or is their love the only truly unbreakable thing?

My Review:
This book blew my mind! Seriously I read it in less then 24 hours. I could not put it down. This book is a little more racy then book one and I am 100% ok with that! Madly's world is turned upside down as soon as they get to Atlas and realize how bad things are there for her family and her people. Madly has a strong sense of duty to protect them and do whatever she can for them. She is also very much in love! Jackson gives her incredible strength. Madly is so strong and it is that inner strength that she so desperately needed in this book.

Madly and the Jackal was a whirlwind of emotions. Madly and Jackson's relationship is so amazing! I went from super happy, to angry, to I want to punch something, then back to happy. It was crazy. I had to keep reading because I HAD to know what was going to happen. There were so many twists and turns that I was absolutely enthralled! Jersey was her typical blunt self and I loved every minute of it! She is the perfect best friend. She plays a crucial role in finding the descendant of Jackal and Hyde. 

This story opened up a lot of new questions about what was going to happen with the Lore. It is a much bigger plot then I could have ever imagined. I am excited to see what happens next!! It promises to be very interesting. I love Jackson and Madly together and I hope it continues to be that way! They are perfect for each other! I have become very attached to these characters and want the best for them haha! Bring on the next book!!!!!! If you haven't read this series yet then you must!!

Intangible by J. Meyers

Goodreads Summary:

Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.

Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.

My Review:
I received this book from the author to review. I am so glad I got to! This book was awesome! I really enjoyed it. It had so many more paranormal elements then the summary leads you to believe! It brings in creatures that I don't see written about often. I also really liked how the book was from different character perspectives! It kind of kept the reader clued in on what was going on behind the scenes. The story flowed so well and kept me questioning what was going to happen next.

 Sera and Luke's lives are not quite normal. I really like how Sera used her gifts to help those who really need it. I think that is the nurse in me! Some people truly have a healing touch! They do a pretty good job of hiding their gifts. I felt like Luke had a lot of weight on his shoulders after he has his vision about Sera's death. It is a huge worry for him that some day his sister is going to die. Will he be able to change the future?

Sera and Luke's relationship is awesome. It is one of the things that really stood out in this book. They care about each other so much and were willing to give their lives for each other. A truly awesome brother/sister relationship! Always there to have each others backs. I really liked the secondary characters here as well. Jonas, Fey, and Marc were very interesting characters. I hope that we continue to see them in future books! Especially Marc! I am so glad I got the chance to read this book! I can't wait to see what happens with this group of characters!

Title: Toxic
Author: Jus Accardo
Release Date: September 11, 2012
Series Number: 2

Goodreads Summary:
When a Six saved Kale’s life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she’d lose the one thing she’d give anything to keep… And as if it’s not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez's problems. 

After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice—surrender to Denazen for the cure…or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn’t involve being bagged and tagged—or losing someone she loves—Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there’s a traitor among them. Jade. 

Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there’s any hope of proving Jade’s guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead...

My Thoughts:
I have loved the Denazen series since book 1 and I can't wait for book 2. I have had it pre-ordered for a while. Kale is probably one of my favorite guys ever! I hope we get to meet some awesome new characters!

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

Goodreads Summary:

The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series

Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.

My Review:
I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this book. I read it a few weeks ago and it was more they I expected!! I have grown to like Sydney more then I thought I would. She is a very likeable person. There were some points where I was like Sydney come on! He likes you!!! But, she has lived a sheltered life with they Alchemists. The book picks up pretty quickly after the first book ends. She is still worried about her weight and eats right most of the time. She is still very concerned about her work and wants to do things right to make her family see how good she is at what she does. I like that she stays who she is and doesn't change as much. Some of her views seem to be changing and she doesn't agree with everything her fellow Alchemists do. I hope this continues in later books!

Oh Adrian...I think I like him more then Dimitri which I never expected! He has grown into a pretty awesome guy. He's actually going to school and is good at art! The bond between him and Jill was funny at times in this book. I don't want to spoil it but, it was really funny when certain feelings would come through. He is fiercely loyal to his friends and willing to protect them. He goes to a self defense class with Sydney, which she needed trust me!

There are a lot of twists and turns in this book. Sydney even gets a boyfriend! We get to learn some very interesting things about people I never expected! What I thought was going to happen was so far off. The Golden Lily was an awesome read and I recommend it to everyone! Even if you haven't read Vampire Academy. Can't wait for the next one!

Title: Lies Beneath
Author: Anne Greenwood Brown
Release Date: June 12, 2012

Goodreads Summary:
Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.

My Thoughts:
I am on a mermaid kick. I blame M. Leighton for this. The underwater world is so fascinating and I am just plain intrigued. Maybe it's because I was on the swim team in high school and love the water haha. The cover is also very nice. So I am anxiously awaiting this one! Enjoy the book trailer! Looks awesome!

ReVamped by Ada Adams

Goodreads Summary:
A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.

My Review:
This was a completely different kind of vampire book then I thought it would be. Most of the books I have read about vampires they are creepy and mysterious and drink only human or animal blood. I thought that a lot of the ideas in this book were very modern like Transylvania Shore and blood pop! Because come on in this day and age that would defiantly happen! The book also ties in some really cool things that I never saw coming! I don't want to The story was really inventive too. Dawn gets to live her dream by training a group of miss-fit vampires and truly prove how much she has trained and grown.

I really liked Dawn. I always like it when a girl can kick some serious butt! Dawn is not someone I would want to make mad or run into in a dark alley. She takes her work seriously and would do anything for her loved ones and friends. I think that is a very important characteristic for the female lead. Sebastian...I am kind of rooting for him! He seems like a very interesting character and it should be interesting to see where things go. Especially with how the book started.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this series. Especially with Aurora!

Goodreads Summary:
Millionaire Jack Gray earned his fortune creating erotic art for a discerning clientele. He doesn’t use a brush to depict these hauntingly beautiful portraits—he uses bare skin. A sterling reputation is the only thing standing between Jack and poverty as he skirts the thin line between fine art and cheap sensationalism. To ensure that his character remains beyond reproach, an assistant observes his sessions.

While interviewing for a new assistant, Jack hears her voice—Abby Tyndale—the girl who got away. The last time Jack saw her was over a decade ago. After years of romantic tension she had nearly kissed him, but then disappeared without a trace. He hasn’t seen her since. Until now. When he learns that his lost love joined the clergy after she fled to West Texas, his heart sinks. She’s forbidden, forever set apart by her vows.

Jack’s life quickly spins out of control as Abby grows closer to him, and worsens when his client list is stolen. The financial blow alone is damning, but it’s the scandal brewing beneath the surface that he fears the most. Jack and Abby’s livelihoods rely on their reputations. A single scandal will destroy them both. While fearing a contrived scandal, they have courted a very real one as their romance reignites.

This erotic romance is an addictive tease that will leave you breathless and begging for more.
