Darkest Day

The 19th Year
by Emi Gayle

Release Date: January 6, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance

Amazon or Barnes & Noble


Mac Thorne’s time as a Changeling is coming to an end.

It may have taken eighteen years, but Mac did finally manage to do what the Council wanted: she chose a teacher and renounced the in-between.

There’s just one last step. She must say goodbye to her human. Forever.

After being challenged in every way possible, Mac leaves what she thought would be the easiest task for the last possible moment. As midnight on July fourth draws near, though, she hasn’t found a way to give up Winn Thomas.

Nor does she want to.

With time running out, Mac stands at a literal crossroads.

Choose Winn, and she’ll be stripped of the only family she’s ever known—vampires, dragons, and her favorite demon. Even her own mother. Accept her position on the Council and rule as an equal to her twelve peers, and she’ll forget Winn ever existed.

Independence and freedom have never before been so limiting.

In this final chapter of the 19th Year Trilogy, it’s time for Mac to decide.

Responsibility? Or Love?

Review: SHIFTING FATE by Melissa Wright

According to prophecy, Brianna Drake was born to save the world. The trouble is, she doesn't have the slightest idea how. Her visions should have given her the answer, but they’re beginning to shift, making the danger too unpredictable, even for a prophet.

If she can just help her sister restore their hidden powers, she might be able to stop what’s coming. But an old enemy returns, and he’s got plans for Brianna and her visions.

What neither of them knows is that fate has given a stranger one chance to find her. He was trained to protect the chosen—but if he fails, the future will crumble.

Oh how I love when a fabulous book has a fabulous sequel!  It makes me do a happy dance :) tee hee hee!  The first book in the Descendants Series, BOUND BY PROPHECY, is an amazing read (see my five star review here) and I've been salivating to get a hold on this baby, SHIFTING FATE.  It totally does not disappoint!

We start off stepping away from Emily's POV to a shifting POV that focuses on Brianna's story.  I loved getting to know this girl who, while being Emily's twin, is so different.  Then we get to meet Logan.  **happy sigh**  Logan is this amazing alpha male who is completely devoted to protecting Brianna.  The chemistry between these two is like fireworks!  Awesomesauce!!!  

The plot of SHIFTING FATE is intense.  It's a race against time, but the timing is so uncertain because Brianna's visions keep changing and her powers alter, causing even more trouble.  Brianna must find a way to free her and Emily's powers to prevent a horrible future from coming to pass.  While she is trying to accomplish this, psycho kidnappers, chase scenes and explosions keep getting in her way.  I love her tenacity throughout this book and I love how she grows to believe in herself.

My only complaint is that Emily's and Brianna's heritage got confusing for me.  As the mystery unfolds on who they are and how Brianna will ultimately free their powers, I got a bit lost, but I'm pretty confident that book 3 will clear these things up.  I'm crazy eager to see where this series goes from here and anxiously await Descendants #3!!!

Review: SOUL RESURRECTED by Keri Lake

As Wrath’s fiercest son, Logan carries the scars of fifty years spent in the most dreaded prison of the underworld, for a sin he’d kill to keep secret. Enduring decades of gruesome torture has left Logan feared by and detached from others, until a female Alexi’s blood resurrects his soul from death and, with it, the pleasures he’s been denied for so long.

Plagued by shame of her own, Calla is drawn to the ruthless demon, Logan, whose insatiable craving for her touch rouses buried passions and, for once, leaves her feeling desired.

A dark and dangerous evil has been reawakened, however, and when Calla is drawn too close to its breeding grounds, Logan vows to summon the violence of Wrath in order to keep her safe. First, though, Calla must save him from a past riddled with deceit and corruption … but only if she can accept the chilling consequences of unearthing his vilest skeleton.

Sons of Wrath
Never gamble with vengeance …

SOUL AVENGED (see my five star review here) is such an awesome book and I was crazy excited to get to read it's sequel, SOUL RESURRECTED.  SA sets the bar really high and I've got to say, SR is every bit as good!  Keri Lake does such a great job taking a mystery and peeling off it's layers at just the right pace to keep a girl glued to her kindle.  I gobbled SOUL RESURRECTED right up!  

Since we meet both Logan and Calla in SA, it's safe to say a reader is already quite invested in these characters.  SR picks up right where SA leaves off -- thank goodness as we were left with quite a cliff hanger in SA-- and we are immediately drawn into this story.  The wild action and intense romance is perfectly balanced.  The plot is fantastic and I was holding my breath wondering how it would all work out.  Plus there is such a great romance between Calla and Logan -- both very sweet and steamy!-- and along with the depth of Calla and Logan's story, there are hints and story building going on for future installments.  Yay for a great read!  I can't wait to more of this series!!!
