Review of "Dirty Magic" by Jaye Wells

Image
MAGIC IS A DRUG. CAREFUL HOW YOU USE IT.
The Magical Enforcement Agency keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there's a new blend out there that's as deadly as it is elusive. When patrol cop Kate Prospero shoots the lead snitch in this crucial case, she's brought in to explain herself. But the more she learns about the investigation, the more she realizes she must secure a spot on the MEA task force.
Especially when she discovers that their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier - on the same day she swore she'd given up dirty magic for good. Kate Prospero's about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that when it comes to magic, you should never say never. *********************************************
This was another interesting read and a new to me author.  I enjoyed this book, it was imaginative and had some good action to it.  I liked learning the world of this book since it's quite …

Review for "Ashes" by Sarah Gilman

Image
Accidents happen for a reason...
Journalist Ambrosia Pellerin accepts an assignment involving the legendary phoenix, expecting, if nothing else, a little entertainment. Instead, she winds up pregnant—by a surprisingly human-looking firebird, Reece Bennu. As the Phoenix prince, Reece is next in line to the throne and expected to marry a purebred royal. A common human such as Ambrosia is not in the cards. He swears, though, he’ll never be an absentee father. As Ambrosia’s due date grows closer, so do the soon-to-be parents. But will their tentative love survive the prejudice of Reece’s grandmother, who will stop at nothing to tear the two apart?
*****************************************
This was a good book but pretty much predictable.  There's a guy with secret and a journalist who wants to know them.
A-typical romance ensues, kind of Romeao and Juliette type of thing.  I recommend this book to people who enjoy paranormal romances that are easy to read.  I don't have …

Review for "Earth Fall" by Mark Walden

Image
Sam wakes to see strange vessels gathered in the skies around London. As he stares up, people stream past, walking silently towards the enormous ships which emit a persistent noise. Only Sam seems immune to the signal.

Six months later, Sam is absolutely alone. Injured by one of the flying drones which now populate London, Sam realizes that without medical supplies he will die. Venturing above ground he is attacked again, but this time the drone is shot down in a hail of machine gun fire. In five minutes Sam learns two things: he is not alone; the drone injury should have killed him instantly – yet he is still alive. The battle for Earth is about to begin.
**********************************************************
Another great book and new to me Author worth reading.  I'm so glad I got the chance to read this book.  It was excellent.  Lots of action and suspense infused into this read. As a side not; I love the book-cover.
This poor kid called Sam wakes up to strange l…

Review for "Blood Burn" by J.E. Fletcher 5 STARS!!!!

Image
Have you ever wondered what would happen to a werewolf in the vampire/zombie apocalypse?
When Layne Yow finds herself smack in the middle of a full fledged zombie apocalypse she does what any werewolf would do...she calls bullshit on the universe. Sure, there are vampires, werewolves, and other assorted paranormal creatures in the world, but zombies? No freakin' way.
Layne is a young werewolf on the run from her recent past as an elite vampire killer. She quickly finds out that you can't outrun life or absurdity. Layne's big mouth and desire to rescue everyone puts her (and her new friends) into harm's way more than once.

********************************************************
Awesome book and great start to a new series!
I truly enjoyed this book as it is different then most books I have read about Zombie apocalypses.  It was a breath of fresh air and was an absolute ball to read.
The main character Layne is a werewolf and a kickass lady with a smart mouth …

Review of "Supercell" by H.W. Buzz Bernard

Image
They’ll pay him a fortune to find a killer tornado for their movie.
He knows the risks all too well, but he never imagined just how dangerous the perfect storm could be.

Chuck Rittenburg was one of the most intrepid storm chasers in the country until a bad decision resulted in the death of a young couple who’d paid to ride along. A decade later—broke, divorced, and estranged from his college-age children—he’s got nothing left to lose. When a film producer offers Chuck one-million dollars to help find and photograph a deadly tornado in Oklahoma, Chuck sees a chance to earn his kids’ respect again—and maybe his own.
The situation quickly becomes about more than tracking a monster tornado for Hollywood. FBI Agent Gabi Medeiros insists on riding along. A burglary ring is targeting tornado-ravaged neighborhoods, and their tactics now include murder.
With the stage set for a major heist, a deadly supercell, and a confrontation between Man and Nature on an epic sc…
