Title: Shooting Stars (A Surah Stormsong Novel #1)

Author: H.D. Gordon

Publisher: ShareAread

Release Date: March 15th, 2013

Formats: E-book

Goodreads TBR: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17453446-shooting-stars

Cover Artist: Regina Wamba
Short Excerpt:
Surah paced back and forth across the ancient Arkian rug that covered her bedroom floor. Samson watched her from his perch by the window, his enormous head resting between his paws, his ears perked and long tail tucked around him. He had been chuffing and sniffing around her since she entered, but now he just watched her, his golden tiger eyes following her back and forth.

“Dear Gods, Samson,” she said, going over to him and running her hand through the soft fur on his neck. “What did I just do?”

Samson was a Great Tiger, about four times the size of those in the human world, his stripes black and blue rather than orange and black. Surah had saved him from a Great Serpent when he had been just a cub, and the beast was loyal to her beyond all else. Her father’s eyes had bugged out of his head when Surah had walked home with Samson one evening when she was just a girl, some eight-hundred years ago, and she had cried and cried until he finally agreed to let the tiger stay. It was impossible not to see how the tiger loved her, and eventually, Syrian decided the beast would be good protection for his daughter. He had already lost one child and his wife.

“I need to think,” Surah whispered, wrapping her arms around Samson’s neck and nuzzling her face against his warm, coarse fur. Samson let out a deep growl of a purr and licked his mistress’s face with his rough tongue. He spoke in her head, an ability Surah had given him using Magic long ago. She was the only one that communicated with him this way, because he simply didn’t care to communicate with anyone else.

His voice was deep and rumbling, like James Earl Jones’. Is he the boy you gave Syra’s stone to?

“Yes,” she silently responded. “And something tells me it plays a part here. Could be why he was lying.”

Well, that’s no good, Samson said.

“Yes, thank you. I got that.”

“This debut novel from H.D. Gordon has everything what I love in ya. Romance, suspense, action, kick ass heroine and of course smokin hot Kayden. I loved every moment of this book and I found it extremely difficult to put down. “

My Review:

So lemme count the ways I love Ms. HD! She’s so freaking cute, she’s extra cool, she’s actually very nice, she hangs out with the coolest people (you ladies know who you are), but most of all, SHE IS A BRILLIANT WRITER! I mean, almost anyone can pick up a pen and put it to paper and write, BUT almost no one can write this well! It’s a true gift to write and write well. I am a huge fan of her first series, and I will be honest- I haven’t read the last book of the Alexa series, because I am too devastated to say goodbye…. Yes, I will read it and probably soon, BUT I need to come to terms with the fact that it’s the end. So, I wasn’t expecting to like this book as much. Pffft, goes to show what expectations are for LOL

Surah is a fantastic character. She is strong, and brave and a hero just being who she is. She does remind me of Alexa a little in the fact that she really can hold her own and doesn’t need protecting-she can protect herself. However, that’s where it stops because Surah is also feminine in a way Alexa wasn’t. She’s also ok with asking for help when she needs it. I like this so much about her.

Charlie is something HAWT! He’s just so freaking cute! And there’s some characters that I think you will just love! Especially with how well the relationships are developed between them. And I look forward to so much more from these characters, and new ones that will come to be in the future!
I will say that this type of series is not so much like the Alexa series either. I know you are going to see so much about the Alexa series, but HD has made her own way here. There shouldn’t be that much comparison because even though it’s coming from the same writer, and there is a similar style, I can’t find all that much to say “it’s just like that one”. There is action and suspense and a wonderful creation of a new world! That alone was so awesome!
There is so much to say about this book, but I can’t tell you everything or else I would ruin something beautiful! So, I will stop blabbering and tell you to read this 5 MAGICALLY WONDERFUL PAWS book! 🙂 Go right now! 🙂 and then we can wait impatiently for the next book to come out!
