I’m afraid this book didn’t do it for me. I was bored and didn’t complete it. A tired story-line.
So Dakota, I have to ask – who writes your stories? You? or the characters in your head?
Dakota Cassidy is an author with a kooky sense of humour and a wild imagination as demonstrated in this book.
Here a number of her characters come to ‘visit’ her, in her office, and she converses, argues, and generally interacts with them. As do her pet dogs and cats.
Peculiar, much. Funny, yes.
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
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
- All Royals are twins.
- They don’t look like their siblings – why?
- 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
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!
Danni is still in Paris and has a new trainee to help her but she suspects that a certain Weeia has been working with criminals and using mind power to influence humans.
She is helping a shopkeeper with his small issue about blackmail – protection money as the book starts but this proves to be just a very small problem in her life in Paris. It was a small world for the Weeia even if they lived in a large city. All knew, or knew of each other. And thus they all knew who to call on when they had problems. And that was Danni.
As the originality of the story had been explored in book one, this book relies more on the situation and its characters and this falls a little flat as it becomes just another detective novel. Still quite well written but…
