Hello my wonderful people!! I’m so excited today as I am back again with this wonderful series!!! You can see my reviews for the first two books HERE as part of a blog tour! And again, I really need to thank the extra wonderful Ms. Amy Bartol, because she so graciously offered to GIVE me the books I didn’t have.
Blurb for book 1:
My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I had been hoping that once I had arrived on Crestwood’s campus, the nightmare that I’ve been having would go away. It hasn’t.
I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I’m grounded…sane. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he is near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you’re thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would–if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I’m the worst thing that’s ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But, get this, for some reason every time I turn around he’s there, barging into my life.
What is the secret he is keeping from me? I’m hoping that it is anything but what I expect: that he is not exactly normal…and neither am I. So maybe Crestwood won’t be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I have been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.
My Review is 5 PAWS and is HERE!
I had this song as book one’s theme song because of these lyrics… “Where there is desire, there’s gunna be a flame. Where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned. But just because it burns doesn’t mean you’re gunna die. You gotta get up and try… Funny how the heart can be deceiving more than just a couple times. Why do we fall in love so easy, even when it’s not right….” P!nk-Try…
Blurb for book 2:
I don’t open my eyes so I can’t see him, but I can smell him. He thickens the air I breathe, choking me with his scent…his aroma. I shiver. I have to resist. If I’m not strong, then I will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects me even now. But now, I crave him and he knows that; he has been counting on my need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor my surrender. I’m alive, but how much longer will it take until I beg him not to be?
My Review is 5 PAWS and is HERE!
Blurb for book 3:
I hang my head in sorrow for just a moment when I know I am truly alone. I feel like I’m going to my execution, just as he had said. Then I move forward again. I hop a fence of fieldstone and cross a field dotted with Queen Anne’s lace. Goose bumps rise on my arms as I pass the cluster of windmills that I have seen in a dream. The scent is sweet in the field though, not the scent of heat, like it had been when it was forced upon me in visions. I gaze down the hill, beyond the small, whitewashed house that I knew would be there. The church looms dark and grim with its rough-hewn, timber façade, capped by tall, oblong spires reaching to the sky. Black, ominous clouds have collected above the roofline, as if Heaven is showing me the way.
I’ve decided this is my favorite angels book ever!!! Some series get boring and repetitive as they continue and some get gracefully wonderful as they continue- this series is the latter! The characters are evolving, there’s more characters coming into the game, and the awesome scenery is gorgeous!! And you know I kinda love love triangles, so let me just say- there’s not only one BUT TWO!! Different characters that come in are all full of romance!!
Finally, Evie gets back to Reed! And I stupidly fanatically love Bunz and Zephyr!! I know I’m supposed to be in full support of the main characters, but I’m still loving Russell, and B&Z have taken over my giggle worthy moments!! And all the crazy starts because everybody and their momma want Evie, they all think she will be their newest weapon of power! And Brennus has every intent of getting Evie back under his thumb! And then… What happens to Bonnie and Russell- see told you all the crazy hits the fan!
And theirs a whole new bad guy! And Reed makes me mad on this front. She is NOT always the fragile girl, so his actions made me a little nuts! And when things finally get hopefully, it’s just heartbreakingly sad! And…. I get an awesome kiss- but no spoilers :)
I do think that this one does have a more dark feel and there aren’t as many “happy, funny” moments but that doesn’t make it any less lovable! There’s so many points to talk about but I’m worried to give away too many spoilers! So.. I think you should just read this series! :) 5 DANGEROUSLY SOARING PAWS from me!!
Blurb for book 4:
Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on my cheeks as I emerge from the darkness of the ship’s interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling my dark pea coat tighter to my body, the wind lifts red tendrils of my hair. I walk slowly to the railing overlooking the water.
I catch my first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes me shiver in dread. I find it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it. The cold, moss-covered edifices practically scream their presence. As I study the shadows between the falling-down stone, I imagine creeping shapes of undead Faeries grasping the rock, waiting for our ship to draw nearer to their position.
Tipping my face up, I let the rain wash over me. It bathes away the frigid sweat of fear that has broken on my brow. “You don’t know how fiercely beautiful you are, do you?” A quiet voice behind me asks, causing me to stiffen and fix my eyes on the rocks along the shoreline.
I have so many polar opposite feeling for so many characters! Some of them, I’m head over heels in love with, and some I hate so much I wanna spit fire on them!! LOL this means that the writer has done her job by letting me have so much feeling!! :) and we’ve got new characters and some awesome returning characters! And lets not forget about all the fantastic action! It’s a rough ride but it’s totally worth it! There’s some serious character growth here too :)
So lemme say I still love Russell and he has a very special part of the story! And Zee has totally blown me away… I’ve decided I want him as my book boyfriend!! :) I feel bad for Evie in this one. She is literally taken on a ride of chaos and hurt! And Brennus has kinda blown me out the water, but not in a good way :/ he was such a fascinating character to me!
With a never ending supply of bad guys and new characters and crazy world-wind twists, I was not putting this book down. I love a book that isn’t predictable! And I love when something is special and heartbreaking and happy and beautiful all at the same time!!
You know, I don’t know what took me so long to read this series but hot damn I’m so glad I’ve found it. I have a feeling the next go round my put me in the ground! Each one just gets to me so much more so I absolutely cannot wait for number 5! Go!! Go out right now and get this series! 5 CRAZY PHENOMENAL PAWS from me!
I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my “writing uniform” consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed.
