Author: Savannah Skye

Genre: Paranormal/Romance

Rating: 1280px-5_stars.svg

Review: The opening of A House of Cards was brilliant, we are introduced to Hana Spear whose best friend Cassandra “Cassie” was a vampire who was killed. In search of answers and some closure, Hana travels to New York only to be jumped by some vampires and rescued by the police. We learn that Cassie is accused of being a blood runner or a vampire who illegally gets human blood to sell to other vampires, but Hana refuses to believe this. We also learn that Hana is targeted because Cassie apparently hid away a large sum of money that many are trying to get their hands on, but Hana has no idea about the money. It is lucky for her a hunky vampire cop named Avery comes to her rescue several times and the pair form an alliance while Hana is trying to work out what Cassie was involved in and why she seems to be the main target for the powerful vampires.

Book Review

Title: Twisted Saga 1 (Books 1 – 3)

Author: Jo Ho

Genre: YA/Fantasy

Rating: 1280px-5_stars.svg

Review: As this is a bind up of the first three novels in the Twisted series, I will be reviewing each book individually as I have done with other bind ups in the past. I didn’t know much about the Twisted Saga before starting it, but we know from the synopsis that it follows Marley.

What Doesn’t Kill You (Twisted Book 1)

The opening couple of chapters to What Doesn’t Kill You were dark and gritty, and I absolutely loved them, and I hope that they are setting the tone for the rest of the novel. We are introduced to something that likes hunting and killing people by snapping their necks and it has been around for hundreds of years, we get all this before we are introduced to our protagonist Marley Gray who is studying at Blackville University.

Book Review

Title: To Serve My Alien Man

Author: Sabrina Kade

Genre: Sci-Fi/Romance

Rating: 1280px-5_stars.svg

Review: So, this is a short novella in the Rebels of Sidyth series and this also focuses on Layla and Dolan, while I didn’t love this couple in their own story, I was excited to see more from this world and all of these characters. Despite being less than 50 pages long I really loved this side to Layla and Dolan’s relationship. The whole story centres around Layla’s insecurities while she is pregnant especially regarding her weight and while she never had issues with her weight before this does seem to be a major issue for Layla as it is with a lot of women. However, Dolan doesn’t react well to this as he sees Layla as the most beautiful, but he also doesn’t understand human insecurities which makes the situation even more difficult to deal and often leads to one or both of them storming off.

Book Review

Title: Rogue Prince (Vampire Princess #3)

Author: Cameron Drake

Genre: YA/Paranormal/Romance

Rating: 1280px-5_stars.svg

Review: The opening to Rogue Prince was interesting after the cliffhanger at the end of Royally Cursed but the stakes are getting higher for Sasha and she must put her heart aside in order to do what is right for her people, and the people she cares about. With a bond with both Dylan and Maxim, she can hear their thoughts and feel their emotions and she is especially conflicted over Maxim’s return given the revelations in Royally Cursed. Sasha also has gained the ability to give other people gifts or bring out gifts they already have, we see this when she gives Caleb the gift of darkness and brings out Dylan’s gifts which are also developing at a rapid pace.
