A collection of stories [by Melissa Snark] which reflect a number of paranormal genres.

Some I had read before, so I chose to read the new ones. Mainly wished I hadn’t!

Draken, by Solease Barner

1 star

Boo…..oring.

Typical dragon shifter with a temper and huge Alpha issues meets human and…

You know the story, I know the story, we all know the story. So why bother to read it?

  • Noble Secrets by Cecilia Dominic 1 star as got bored quickly.
  • Call of the Dragon by Elianne Adams

I got really bored by chapter 20 of 27 chapters. It was fight – heal – fight – heal – fantasy land – traitor – and so on.

2 stars as I did get more than half-way through.

  • First Light by Tami Lund

Prequel to Light Bearer series.

Started OK but then I got bored. 2

  • Treasured Find by Nancy Corrigan

4 stars

  1. All Royals are twins.
  2. They don’t look like their siblings – why?
  3. All royals have 3 shifter animals inside them and are therefore extremely rare.

I bought the continuation story about messed up Royal Devin.

  • Beautiful Mistake by Nancy Corrigan

The Royals look for Molly, Megan’s twin.

Too repetitive from 1st book. 2

With a giggle and an outrageous mouth - perfect for things other than talking - Katie comes flying into Xaphan's life, upsetting centuries of self-inflicted misery. How can he stay true to the one he lost when a bubbly psycho, with mismatched eyes, keeps consuming his thoughts - and awakening his desire? So she was a tad bit nuts, Katie's insanity came in handy as the Devil's favorite problem solver. But killing's not on the menu when a dragon goes missing, and worse, Lucifer teams her up with Hell's grumpiest demon. Xaphan's rejection of her advances only makes her more determined to seduce him. And despite her violent reputation, a part of her is oddly tempted to let him live. Warning:This story centers around a grumpy demon holding on to an ancient vow and a perky psycho (with killer tendencies) who is determined to make him snap. There's cursing, melt-your-screen hotness, messed up religious tropes and snort out loud fun. If you already know you're going to Hell, then dive on in.

 

 

 

Fun!

They do love kill – both of them – and even have competitions to see can kill the most.

‘Natch these are demons who need killing but.

And any of the Damned who get involved and killed will just go back into the pit and be reborn as a new soul wiped clean of all sins, so not that bad maybe?

Born to be Alpha, Cameron Sinclair walks away from his birthright and Pack. He wants nothing to do with either as he builds his multi-billion dollar business.

When summoned he reluctantly goes to the aid of his Uncle’s Pack. What he finds is danger, intrigue, heartache, and the chance of a different life.

His instinct screams at him to walk away but his heart has other ideas. Come and join the Highland Wolf Clan and find out what’s in store for Cameron and his Highlanders.

The first book encouraged me to buy the series so … but that said the stories were very similar to all such stories with lots of fighting, finding mates in strange places, romance and jealousy and traitors and…

So here are the books and how I rated them.

  1. The Reluctant Alpha 4
  2. Alpha Decides 3.5
  3. New Beginnings 3
  4. Despair and Destiny 2.5
  5. Highlander’s Return – Novella 3
  6. Dilemmas 3

Hired by the archangel Raphael--a lethal being--vampire hunter Elena Deveraux must track down a rogue archangel on a killing spree, a job that leads her into Raphael's seductive and deadly embrace.

 

An alternate multiverse that you are taken into that is rich in experience and complexity.

Hooks you immediately  – and yes, I have now bought all the existing 9 books despite my internal war against the expense when I get so many free books – and have a library waiting for reading!

Where to start?

The main area of action is New York (and its surroundings. In this multiverse, Angels and Archangels are real beings. Possibly an alien race but even they are not sure. A race that is effectively immortal, although after many thousands of years they tend to get tired of existence and go to Sleep.

No-one knows how many Angels and Archangels Sleep, nor where or even how this Sleep is maintained. It is possible, their history says, for an Angel who is asleep to wake and Sleep again many times but…

Archangels, by virtue of their long life, effective immortality (immune to disease, can regenerate limb and wings etc) rule the world in 10 different sectors, divided roughly equally.

There are also Vampires ‘Made’ by the Angels mostly as servants. Vampires are also effectively immortal – unless you cut their heads off and incinerate them. But yes, they can walk in the sunlight and perform normal tasks, they just live a long time as long as they drink a little blood.

From time to time, vampires get blood lust and start to kill instead of just drinking, and then they are Hunted. Which is where our heroine Elena comes in.  She is our Wonder Woman archetype. She is strong, fast, exceptional at her job of tracking, and lovely too.  And the Archangel ruling New York becomes rather a fan… even if he is rather a frightening character.

This is a series that really grips. I didn’t believe the reviews but now I do!

Where can you go?

Mary Wiles Chronicles #2

For a millennia Mary Wiles played the good guy. Stay on the path and all would be well. But now that she has long strayed from the path to heaven there is nothing stopping her from hunting down those who hurt her and her friends.

Now to save a fellow angel, Mary will have to break all the rules. Unfortunately, that means asking for help from a half-demon she had once called friend.

To find what was lost, Mary will have to help a demon lord cross over to the human plane. But the closer she gets to completing her task the deeper she gets entangled by their lies. Soon, Mary realizes that not even angels can stave off the fires of hell forever.

Are you truthful? Mary can find out.

So Mary is not only a fallen angel but in Hell they cut off her wings. She is now in a permanent quest to find her wings and also her old Captain, Ramiel, who she is convinced was also kidnapped by demons.

In the meantime, using her human form she needs to make a living as she is no longer welcome in Heaven – at least until she can get her wings back and then we shall see.

It turns out Mary is really good at exorcism and divining from people’s auras if they are good or bad and truthful or not. She has thus set up shop with a young assistant as sort of sleuth.

Not the most riveting of tales and as alternate universes go, not exciting.
