  Good Thursday all , today we are going to review the first book in the AWAKEN Series by Mathew S Cox . PROPHET OF THE BADLANDS is up

                            BOOK BLURB 

For most twelve year olds, being kidnapped is terrifying. For Althea, it’s just Tuesday.

Her power to heal the wounded and cleanse the sick makes her a hunted commodity in the Badlands, a place devoid of technology where the strong write the law in blood. For as long as she can remember, they always come, they always take her, and she lets them. Passed around in an endless series of abductions, she obeys without question―mending those who killed to own her.

After three whole months in the same village, the affection of a young warrior makes her feel almost like a member of the tribe rather than a captive. Her brief joy shatters when raiders seize her yet again; for the first time in six years, being stolen hurts.

A reluctant escape sends her wandering, and she realizes her gift is a prize that causes as much death as it prevents. Her attempt to return to the tribe leaves her lost and alone, hounded at every turn. When a family who sees her not as the Prophet―but as a little girl―takes her in, she finds the courage to use her power to protect those she loves.

A strange man from a world beyond her imagining tests her newfound resolve, seeking to use her power to further his own agenda. Tired of being property, her freedom boils down to one question:

Can Althea balance the sanctity with which she holds all life against the miserable truth that some people deserve to die?

                   MY REVIEW 

    I am glad I took a chance on this book . I love post apocalyptic tales . This dystopian tale is one of a poor girl who is a seer and a healer .She has been captured and stolen so many times she doesn't know where she belongs . The tribes wanting to keep her captive because of her healing abilities . After being with a tribe for awhile she was starting to feel safe but then she is stolen again . Which sets her on a path that will take her to a place where someone wants to use her for his own gain . But this time she is ready to fight and get back to her family .
  The main character Althea is such a sweet character , she is only 12 but she has been through so much . She can heal the sick and is so sought after by everyone . You feel so sad for her at the beginning of the book . She is just a waif that is scared of everything and everyone . But as she is stolen by each tribe , you see her start to grow and get so motivated. Some ways she is still  a child but as you see her . You see her start to grow and become the strong young woman . Each character that helps her or steals her adds to her growth. Karina is such a force for Althea they become like sisters . They form such a strong bond that can't be broken . Pixie and the rest are such a random group of awaken who only want to use Althea . This is where she starts to stand up for herself .  These characters are  very well written and complex . You will want to wrap each character up and tell them that everything will be ok 
    The author really does know how to write an apocalyptic dystopian story. He takes us on a roller coaster ride . Bringing out all our emotions in the process. You really feel for the main character  and want to see her safe . There are so many twists and turns in this book that will keep you reading well into the night . There is so much packed into the pages of this book . You will be blown away with all that goes on . I couldn't put this book down and finished it in a day and a bit . Its that good . So if you want a great story that will make you feel and laugh check it out

  Wow I am in such a slump reading wise . After I put this book down it took me a couple of days to recoup my mind. Aleatha Romig really knows how to bring it . INTO THE LIGHT is a page turner .

                            BOOK BLURB 

Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light.
Stella Montgomery investigates the news from the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella digs for answers—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.
As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price…

                      MY REVIEW 
 What do you do when you wake up blind and can't remember your life . That's what happens to Sarah Adams . She loves the darkness cause she is scared of what will happen if her sight came back . Then there is Stella Montgomery . she is after a story  that will take her right up against the cult The light. The more each of them dig into the LIGHT the more questions come to light and everything comes with a price . 
   I must say that the author never disappoints and she hasn't disappointed me with this one . Her characters are so well written and complex , you can't help but fall for them . You want to cheer them on and make sure they stay safe  The book actually has three points of view Sara , Stella and Jacob . Sara is at first a very frightened and confused . She has woken up and is blind but she is trying to be strong . As you read you see Sara come into her own and become stronger and stronger . Now Stella is strong and man she is such a go getter . She is willing to sacrifice herself for a story . I want to be her when I grow up . She is a great strong woman . I must say I like that Jacob is part of the story also. He is just creepy and eerie . He is such a strong person and he isn't really that nice . But as you start to get into Jacobs mind we see that he isn't all that he puts out there. We actually feel the love he has for Sara  I am so grateful for that point of view because there were a couple of times I really wanted to hit him with the frying pan repeatedly. 
   The author really knows how to take us on an adventure . The story is intriguing and the characters are very well written . The mystery of Sara's accident is plausible and the cult story is actually relevant . I couldn't put this book down I was hooked from page one . The mystery had me hooked and reading well into the night . There is a cliff hanger at the end of this book but book two is out so you can jump in right away to finish off their story. So if you want a book that will keep you reading and guessing check out this series . You will not be disappointed .

   Good Wednesday morning all , today we are going to review THE VAMPIRE'S LAST DANCE by Deanna Chase

                            BOOK BLURB


Introducing Love Spells - Get your Laugh Out Loud Paranormal here!

She’s a witch who carries a family curse, destined to never get her happily ever after. Felicia Patterson has come to terms with the fact that she’ll never get to be with her one true love… whoever he happens to be. But when the sexiest vampire she’s ever seen walks onto Witch Island, she can’t help her fluttering heart.

He’s a vampire who’s been burned before, destined to never love again. Christoph Parks has sworn off relationships. In the century that he’s walked the earth, he’s only known heartbreak and disappointment. But one smile from the island’s sassy florist has his icy heart melting. And now that the pair have been thrown together to save their loved ones’ wedding from imploding, can they also overcome a brutal curse, find a way to trust, and finally get the love that they deserve?
                         MY REVIEW   
 This is the first book in a new series . I was so excited to see that this author has written a new series and I couldn't wait to dive into it . Let me introduce you to Felicia Patterson a witch and a magical florist on Witch Island . Who has been cursed and is resigned to the fact that she will never ever find her true love . Until the day Christoph Parks walks into her shop and her life . Will they come together or will the family and the curse get in their way . 

   I truly liked this book , it is a different turn for this author .  She takes us on a fun filled ride . The characters are well written and you will fall in love with them . Felicia is such a fun character . She is a florist that loves her job and loves bringing happiness to the people that come to witch island to wed . But she is also sad and hiding her pain of the fact that she will never marry . When push comes to shove though she shows us what she is truly made of and what it takes to stop the attacks from happening . She ends up being a kick butt heroine.  Christoph is a hot sexy vampire who is a fix it guy . Trying to keep his best friend and his brothers wedding on the right path. He is sexy and confidant but also hiding some pain . He has been burned by love and doesn't want to find it again. As you read you see him through out the book relaxing and having a good time with the young florist . You see him slowly letting Felicia in. Together they are fun and sexy and will have you laughing all the way through the book 
   This is more of a novella length then the authors other books . I love novellas for a quick fun read, which this one is . The author takes us on a fun filled romp that will keep you reading all night long . There is a scene at the beginning of the book that had me spitting tea it was so funny. Now those would be the best bouquets for a bachelorette party ever . This is the lighter side for this author . It is funnier and lighter then her other books .  The only thing I wish it was just a little longer so we could see the love blossom more between Christoph and Felicia . Other then that I loved this book and can't wait for the rest of the books that will come out for this series .
