Author: Danielle Annett
Genre: Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
Release Date: 25 September 2020

Summary:

Welcome to Hellbound High, where the students carry weapons and the bullies bite … hard.

I never wanted to go to this stupid school. I had a life before coming here. A Pack. People who cared about me. But all of that is torn away when my mother dies, my boyfriend cheats on me, and my very human father rips me away from the only life I’ve ever known.

I thought my life couldn’t get much worse, but Hellbound High is about to prove me wrong. Just by showing up, I’ve caught the attention of the local Alpha’s son. Goody.

He’s arrogant, stubborn, and used to getting what he wants. Sometimes that’s to get into my pants. Sometimes it’s to make my life hell. He runs hot one minute and cold the next, leaving my head spinning.

But I have bigger problems than the school’s resident hot werewolf. I’m a lone wolf in a new town, which means I have a big red target on my back.

With no Pack, no friends, and no protection, I’m about to find out just how bad things can really get …

The full moon has long had an aura and mystery that has made it an integral part of humanity’s myths and legends. Such is the case of Sisters of the Moon, where the lunar cycles and their power have sway over the women who live in the convent of St. Gertrude. 

The moon is tied to the ever-changing cycle of women’s’ bodies. This may be why witches believed that magic is supposedly at its most powerful during the full moon, and since many women were associated with witchcraft and healing, the moon became their symbol. 

The beginnings of giving the moon a female essence go back to the ancients when Luna in Latin and Selene in Greek, both female names and deities in the Roman and Greek pantheons, were attributed to the moon. The Incas in South America have a myth where a brother and sister, the moon maiden, and the sun man are the ancestors of their people. Native Americans share similar folklore where the woman’s role is portrayed as dark and influenced by the moon’s cycles. The sun is considered masculine because of its life-giving power and endurance Sol in Latin and Sunne in Old English and is deemed masculine by astronomers. Many mythologies have male solar deities–the Greek god Apollo, the Roman god Sol, the Mesopotamian god Utu, and the Egyptian god Ra. It would seem women remained in the shadows of the sun even among the gods.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG, and by that, I mean Oh. My. Gabriel. I love when authors blaspheme and make the divine sexy and delicious. Good job C.L. Coffey, you sinner.

Kennedy is plucking her way through every goodness-challenged day. Phoenix is only the last stop in a long line of cities she and her mom have lived in, on the run from her mom’s monster plagued schizo-mind. It’s hot there, she has two jobs, and people suck. 

But wait, there is more, a guy with a sword has just shown up. He has sexy green eyes and a psychotic need to off her. The dude attacked her on her way home, and she got hit by a car—a rough day at the office.

Book Review: Death Wish by Harper A. Brooks

Title: Death Wish (Reaper Reborn #1)
Author: Harper A. Brooks
Genre: Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jade Blackwell is a reaper with an attitude and a problem with the job description. She knows what she is supposed to do, but has so much empathy for her reap-ees that she finds it hard to take their lives and escort them to the afterlife. Upper management isn’t too happy with her.

Death Wish is Charlene Harris meets Dannika Dark. I kept thinking of Dannika Dark’s Raven Black from Cross Breeds series in a Charlene Harris-type world. It works because this marriage creates two worlds in one where some humans luck out and know the horrible truth while most of the back story happens in a supernatural world that is begging for policing by a strong soul. Jade is just a hapless reaper, but she’s the only applicant at the moment. 

The cast of characters is excellent. I love Kay. She’s my favorite. Cole, Sean, and Wyatt are okay, but you know men always get in the way of good storytelling =P.

Title: Faust University
Author: M. Dalto and Laynie Bynum
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Faust University is an assemblage of so many Academy Reads; I don’t know where to start comparing. The book, tongue firmly in cheek, compares it’s invite process to Harry Potter; we can knock that one out. Then I was stuck thinking of Magicians by Lev Grossman, Wonderland Academy by Melanie Karsak, Celestial Academy by Sarah Biglow and Molly Zenk, and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead as I read it. There were many times Faust Academy picked up on other Paranormal Academy novels before it. Still, when something works, it works for a reason, and the plot of Faust Academy has a lot of real estate. While I was often distracted by the similarities to previous novels I read, I enjoyed the narrative.

Eve gets an invite to a private university, and like magic, she is whisked away to this strange place. Upon arriving, she finds it bizarre and secretive, and even more discussions of sorcery are taking place, summoning and beast mastering, to name a few. She has an instant connection with her new friend, and all goes awry when the two find they have an even more substantial relationship.

Title: Ravage (Royal Fae Academy #1)
Author: Lacey Carter Andersen
Genre: Paranormal Reverse Harem Romance
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There is being a badass and just being a bad character, and in Ravage, Esmeray is often a poorly written character who has crossed that fine line. 

Revere introduces us to Esmeray and her mates: Bron Drake, Lucian Silver, and Dwade Luther… 

–Dwade is still a nonsense name in my book and far from sexy. Should we Dwade into the swamp? Dwading in lakes is far better. See, that is what comes to mind when I hear Dwade. /tangent–  

…And we learn about the sexy, no-no-relationship situation the three men are keeping from Rayne and Esmeray; no one knows that Esmeray is their mate. But now Rayne has been murdered, and Esmeray is at the Royal Fae Academy, and keeping the sexy Dark Fae from doing what comes naturally to her without spilling their guts is proving impossible to Bron, Lucian, and Dwade.
