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.

4 of 5 stars

Wow! AHS meets Kelly Creagh’s Nevermore Series meets good ol’ Southern ghost legends.

When shhh gets weird, you know you ain’t in Chicago anymore. The chip on Colette’s shoulder is pretty epic-sized about the move, and what’s worse is that she sees the ghost of the girl who once lived in her house immediately upon arriving. Genesis Long died in a terrible car crash and wanders Savannah, Georgia, searching for her love Sebastian Campbell. Compounding all weirdness is Colette’s inexplicably drawn to Sebastian’s brother, Abel, and he is fascinated by her.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book with some caveats; the author actively regulates the hints and facts she gives out by using the character’s storytelling, which sometimes feels like the author doesn’t know where she is going with the narrative. When someone continually tells you that they can’t tell you something yet, you have to wonder if it’s that you can’t know it yet or they don’t know it yet, which was what was rattling around my head in the book because there were times when the story took strange shifts that seemed ill-conceived.

Tongue Wagger: Wolf Bride by Elizabeth Moss

Wolf Bride by Elizabeth Moss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am voluntarily reviewing this reader copy of Wolf Bride.

Tudor Era novels. I don’t have a good reason for not reading them, I just always think I don’t like them. Maybe it’s the tv show tripping me up. Anne Boylan wasn’t really a good friend to anyone, so maybe I always think she mucked up an entire Age. I pass these books by, after reading Wolf Bride I have a fresh palate and Elizabeth Moss has inspired me.

This book is steamy to the nth. Definitely 5 Steamies out of 5 and also NSFW. Continue Reading

Any Day That Ends in YA – Daughter of the Earth and Sky by Kaitlin Bevis

Daughter-of-Earth-and-Sky-BG-Cor

Daughter of the Earth and Sky picks up where Persephone left off.
There wasn’t that much of a cliffhanger between the first two of books, but there was still some suspense that got unraveled in the course of the second book, flowing right into a MAJOR cliffhanger to the third installment, The Iron Queen – which sounds to me more Celtic, fairy inspired than Greek.

Tongue Wagger: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Sweet-Tempt

I call this book Kaidan is Sexy because Sweet Temptation does it no justice.

It is always interesting to see the other side of stories.

In the vein of Jamie McGuire’s Walking Disaster, or Christine Zoldenz’s Scars and Songs, Wendy Higgins has given us the guy perspective of her series. Sometimes, like in the instance of Travis Maddox, it is very hard to reconcile the guy the heroine saw and fell in love with and the dude in his own book. Travis is not charming in Walking Disaster, he’s rather skeevy. I couldn’t like him as he was in his own tale; although it was a perfect example of  TWO accounts being told of one story. But Kaidan Rowe is relatable and easy to love in Sweet Temptation as he was to Anna. His weaknesses and darkness becomes apparent while keeping him palatable, and desirable even. I am still in love with this lust puppy after seeing the world through his eyes.
