They say the fae used to take the most beautiful maidens and make them their brides.
They lied.
What they do with them is much worse.

After the seven lords of Sidhe are massacred in one day, the thrones of the fae realm pass down to their heirs. The Iron Circle remains leaderless, as its true lord lives in another world. The nobles of the realm will find the heir, and they will destroy him.

Or her.

West, in the Silver Circle, a new lord has taken the throne.
A warrior who never hesitates to crush ants for the good of the world. A man whose rule will change the fate of their realm.

Melpomene has never known where she came from, and after centuries, she’s stopped caring. Until the fae take her, dragging her to a land where bloodlines and power is everything.

To survive, she needs to embrace the monster buried inside.

Lords of Sidhe is a fantasy romance trilogy.

MY REVIEW

King of Ruin by May Sage
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really enjoyed this one the finale for this felt a tad rushed but all else I thought was fab. It was imaginative with great world building and really set the stage ready for this series future growth. Its told in dual POV Mel (Melpomene) and Caim both seemed really well-developed characters with interesting personas. Mel herself is supposedly a muse with a muddy pedigree descended down from immortal gods. Caim is an Unseelie who has managed to acquire the silver throne. When these two immortal destinies cross there paths become entangled. So this is very much slow burn in regards to our central pair and any romance this really does concentrate on selling you this world and its story. This is also a totally unique take on the whole fae concept with spaceships and Tartarus I really did love this and it made this just so distinct and original. Adored the wicked dispositions and cruel intentions of those in this land of monsters and I am ever so interested in seeing where this series is going next as this really did manage to grasp my attention. Lastly, we get some long-awaited action and a small cliffhanger of a finale and as I said earlier the finish for me did feel a tad abrupt and rushed and I also would have liked some prior build up to the long-awaited action as it just seemed to come out of nowhere. Only small niggles and as I have said all else I adored. I will most certainly be reading the next in this series how could I not. This was one I really enjoyed a thumbs up from my corner.

Some call him a madman. Others call him a warlock. Both are true.

But if it wasn’t for Aon, I’d be dead. I was mere seconds away from dying by Edu’s hands when the King of Shadows appeared in a flash of lightning, saving me from Edu’s murderous plans.

Now I’m under his protection, living in his home. The more time I’m forced to spend with him, the more I start to piece together the puzzle of why Aon and Edu are at war.

Despite how everyone else seems to hate Aon, there’s something that pulls me towards him—like gravity, refusing to let go. My heart is telling me to believe what he says is true, yet there’s this prickle of warning in the back of my skull cautioning me against falling for the King of Shadows.

In the world of Under trusting the wrong person can get you killed. Only the strong survive out here, and that’s what I intend to do.

Survive.

MY REVIEW

King Of Shadows by Kathryn Ann Kingsley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was all sorts of fabulous and I was absolutely salivating to get started here. I had a couple to read on my list before this and it nearly killed me to wait but the anticipation definitely lived up to my internal hype and I’m all sorts of digging “King of Shadows” and would go as far as to say this is my stand out series so far this year. This begins exactly where we left things in the previous instalment and Lydia still seemed very fearful and wary where it concerned Aon and his unknown intentions towards her, while this was an understandable reaction from her I did want her to come to the realisation faster that despite his violent actions in her dreams he had never harmed her in any real physical sense. Not only that he also assured her repeatedly that he has no plans to do so considering her fragile human state. So Aon, (that is who I am concentrating on in this review as Lydia got the stage last time around) well he does so love his mind games and employs this strange quirk of his constantly around Lydia. Sometimes throwing all etiquettes and rules to proper social behaviour and norms out of the door. Aon certainly dances to his own piper and does seem mostly unaware of his unusual and improper conduct around others. There is at times an almost devilishly wicked but almost fun vibe to Aon’s encounters with Lydia its almost like he finds her a breath of fresh air in his long mundane existence, an anomaly, if you will, one he is compelled to analyse and dissect (metaphorically of course) “King Of Shadows” was very slow burn in nature and also wasn’t that graphic, when it comes to the encounters between Lydia and Aon a lot is left to your own imagination this was not an issue for me at all: the chemistry here was still through the actual roof and pulsated off the page I could still feel the carnal tension and developing emotion between Lydia and Aon in actual spades. I mentioned previously how much I adored Lydia now Aon also gets the seal of approval from moi. He is just so wickedly delicious with a large hint of bad that just left me panting in his wake, Lyd never really stood a chance here. I also should mention that the old world prose and descriptions of this fantastical new world were so vivid and real that I could actually picture Under in my mind. I felt like I had been dropped into an episode of The Twilight Zone or even a very macabre alternate wonderland. So let us talk about Aon’s supposed madness: well this to me came across as a somewhat forgetful and eccentric nature more than likely brought about by his advanced age rather than any insanity or psychosis itself, I actually found this an extremely endearing and somewhat charming quality to him: In fact, there were even times that Aon reminded me very much of a gorgeous and delicious Mad Hatter. So, this has some of the best world building ive experienced to date, it was brilliant and just ever so entertaining indeed. The old world prose mixed with a huge dash of steampunk just worked for me on every level. The writing itself is also second to none and I devoured every single word, this really was in a league all of its own and that ending, my god I need that next book like right now people. This series so far has been amazing and I’m sorry for my waffling on but I am just so in love here. Think its a tad obvious by now that this one definitely gets my stamp of approval. So before I toddle off On a side note, I really did appreciate that sneak peek of book three very much appreciated. I voluntary reviewed a copy of “King Of Shadows (The Masks of Under #2)”

MY REVIEW

Blood Laws by Lexi C. Foss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow!!  I adored this so so much, it was just such an imaginative and fascinating beginning to this series and one that I am most definitely on board and invested with all the way. This author whilst relatively new to me has managed to pull it out the bag once again, this is the third book I have read by her and each one has managed to captivate and entrall from start to finish. Definitely auto-buy for me now and I can’t wait to see what she manages to bring forth next. So, as usual, the world building here was up there with the best I’ve experienced to date and as an added incentive here the writing manages to drip-feed you into this fantastical world without confusing or totally overwhelming: very impressive undertaking indeed as the world is so vastly immense and intricate. Each instalment in this series focuses on one couple, but there is an ongoing story arc that makes this a series that you will need to read in order if that makes sense. This is actually a really hard premise to describe briefly but the short version to this is there are two opposing factions of supernaturals the Ichorians and the Hydraians who though currently at a ceasefire and a tentative declaration of a truce are actually on the brink of war breaking out. Anastasiya Davenport and Issac Wakefield are somehow caught up in the middle of this conflict. Obviously, there is a lot more to this than what Ive outlined here but that’s the bare bones of it. So characters: I adored the relationship dynamic between Anastasiya and Issac and the almost slow burn build up to there affair. Though of slow burn in nature, this didn’t miss out at all from that fact as there was plenty of sensual heated buildup provided to the main event. The connection between these two was off the charts and projected off the page itself with its compelling intensity and I could feel their particular bond right down to my very bones themselves. I also really did like Issac as a character and all his darlings and loves towards Anastasiya I found to be so incredibly charming indeed. I especially appreciated Issac’s ability to allow Aya to be her own person and make her own decisions regardless of how they impacted on his personal fear for her safety. He respected her right to make her own choices which was refreshing. Anastasiya I also liked but she could be a trifle naive in nature trusting a tad to blindly, she did get there eventually but always seemed to take the scenic route along the way. In conclusion, this was a series that started with a massive bang and though we get some closure offered here there are still plenty of answers I’m waiting on to be revealed at a later date. I for one can’t wait to delve and explore deeper into this fascinating landscape we have been shown here. This one gets my five-star seal of approval it was a fantastic experience that I recommend highly. I voluntary reviewed a copy of “Blood Laws (Immortal Curse #1)”.

New Orleans: city of intrigue, supernatural secrets, voodoo, and one enigmatic dragon…

For 300 years, Gabriel Blakemore has survived hidden among humans after a coup in his native realm of Paragon scattered him and his siblings across the globe. Keeping his secret has preserved his dragon magic but led to a life devoid of true intimacy. Now a voodoo curse threatens to end his immortal existence. His only hope is to find an antidote, one that may rest in a mortal woman.

Death is a welcome end for Raven Tanglewood. After five years of unsuccessful treatment for her brain cancer, her illness has become a prison, something her adventurous spirit cannot abide.

When Gabriel heals Raven and binds her to him, he awakens a connection stronger than any he’s ever known. But she sees the bond as another kind of captivity. Can Gabriel win her love and trust in time to awaken the life-saving magic within her? Or will his fiery personality and possessive ways drive her from his side and seal his fate?

The Dragon of New Orleans by Genevieve Jack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So this is the story of Gabriel and Raven and what a fabulous and addictive ride this was. So first Gabriel’s ring has been cursed by a local voodoo Queen who wants his power to aide in her own immortality. Gabriel a long-lived dragon who also walks in human form needs his ring to stay on earth if he doesn’t find a cure or return to his homeland Paragon he will turn to stone. After locating Raven in a human hospital and sensing her psychic abilities he offers her a choice he will cure her cancer if she comes to work for him breaking his curse. So I adored that this was set in New Orleans and that Gabriel had an antique shop: very fitting indeed. The opening scenes here with Raven’s illness and suffering as she slowly dies from a brain tumour seemed believable and authentic. I felt her internal struggle and also her final acceptance of her nearing fate that is until an additional fantastical option is brought to the table that could potentially save her life. This was for me such an easy addictive read that I was instantly invested in almost from the first page. The connection between Raven and Gabriel here for me blazed so brightly and I felt it from the instant they first connected. This also had a fantastic underlying story and the setup here for progression was great really paving the way for future books: I for one can’t wait to read the rest of this imaginative series. This was a book I read in one sitting so that says it all really: this is rich in magic, legend and love so if you like your paranormal then this one I highly recommend. I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon Book 1).

MY REVIEW

From Ashes and Embers by Claire Marta
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

god, I love this series so much: it’s just so addictive and I really can’t get enough of the antics and lack of remorse this throws out there. It just makes such a refreshing change to be following and rooting for the bad guys and that they are staying true to there inert natures: really adore that about this particular series: how it dabbles in that murky in-between almost in the grey of things. So the first two books here follow Lucifer and Mavi and are told from there POV this one zero’s in on Raziel, Lucifers right-hand man or more accurately Nephilim and Jane some kind of supposed Fae who has been hired to work as a nanny for the precious royal offspring. But all is not as it seems and Jane despite her uncomplicated outward persona has a definite hidden agenda and is most certainly keeping secrets if she doesn’t watch her step what she is hiding could get her killed. So this one is told from Raz and Janes POV and their relationship does conclude in this one volume. Jane herself is a totally different personality type to Mavi and as such the love between these two has a much softer vibe than what we are used to with this particular series though there were still moments here that this most definitely took a much darker overall flavour and turn. There was also quite a lot of input here from Lucifer himself and after observing him in a much lighter vein previously with his love for Mavi and Juliette here he gave no ground whatsoever and was right back on form scheming, plotting and dispensing his own particular brand of twisted justice. This had so many twists and turns and went in directions I really wasn’t anticipating or expecting. And that end reveal, oh my it shocked me sideways I didn’t see that one coming at all. This series is one that I do recommend highly but it does need to be read in order as there is an underlying story that continues on throughout the books. This, as expected, was a great read and if you like your dark paranormal then this one has such a river of decadent deliciousness running straight through it. I voluntary reviewed a copy of From Ashes & Embers (Ceasefire Series Book 3).

Once upon a time, humankind ruled the world while lycans and vampires lived in secret.
This is no longer that time.

Rae

Blood Day–the culmination of my training. The day I find out my fate. I will not cry. I will not beg. I will remain calm. Emotions are for the weak, and I am not weak. My name is Rae and I will survive this.

But I never expected him to call my name…

Kylan

Someone wants to frame me for immortal insanity? Be my guest, darling. I’ll just pick a fighter as my bait, a consort with a hint of defiance. And when the culprit attempts to bite, I’ll be the one who bites back.

Because no one touches what’s mine, including the fiery redhead at my side.

Welcome to Kylan City.
I dare you all to come out and play.

****

Oh, no. This wasn’t good. I couldn’t afford for Kylan to be interested, not with immortality dancing at my fingertips.

You can’t want me, I thought.

But how did I convey that?

I… I…

Do something!

My jaw clenched in frustration, not knowing how to stop this–him. His grip on my chin tightened painfully, his growl vibrating my chest. It took me too long to realize why, to realize what I’d done.

His tongue was trapped between my teeth.

I’d just bitten him.

I’d just bitten a royal vampire.

And not just any royal vampire, but Kylan, the oldest royal in existence.

Royally Bitten by Lexi C. Foss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So glad I took a chance on this particular author as I had not read any of her work before embarking on this series. I am now a complete fan of this incredibly imaginative but brutal future dystopian world: this author has quite the lurid imagination let me tell you. This is the second book in the Blood Alliance series and this time we get acquainted with Royal vampire Kylan and Rae or Raelyn to Kylan. We get to join Rae and her friends at the totally barbaric blood day ceremony where the humans in there 22nd year are being sorted into there designated factions and twelve of them the brightest and best in there graduating class will be chosen to compete for the immortal cup: a competition where the last two left alive will be given the gift of immortality, one to join the lycans and the other the Vampire ranks. Rae’s hopes are dashed when she unintentionally catches the eye of the royal Prince and instead of her place competing in the tournament, she is acquired for the royal harem. Kyran is referenced in book 1 as having murdered his whole harem for sport and is rumoured to be suffering because of his advanced age from some form of immortal insanity but things are not always quite what they seem on the surface and Kylans waters run much deeper than he outwardly reveals. I also found this had a totally different vibe to its predecessor and I enjoyed this even more than Chastely Bitten. I really didn’t think that was even remotely possible considering how much I adored it but this actually surpassed my expectations completely overtaking book one in my affections. Rae herself is of a totally different personality type than Juliet was: more feisty and argumentive challenging Kylan at every turn. Kylan I liked a lot more than I originally thought I would he was quite the personality. I found that this instalment explores the sexuality side of things much more Kylan even has a male blood slave Mikail though he is not actually gay he is certainly more fluid with his affections towards his charge indulging him with pleasure while taking his vein. There is also some slight M/F/M action between Kylan, Rae and Mikail We also get reacquainted with Jace, Darius and his Juliet and though brief I adored catching up with them all. So this for me was a fantastic read and I really didn’t want it to end I was that invested in the unfolding dramatic storyline. I liked where this went and am looking ahead eagerly for book three this is one series I recommend highly loved it. I voluntary reviewed an Arc of Royally Bitten (Blood Alliance Series Book 2).

Release Date-17th October 2018
Genre-Dark Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-310 Pages

Once upon a time, humankind ruled the world while Lycans and vampires lived in secret.
This is no longer that time. 
 

Juliet

It is my duty to obey, to give my body and blood to a vampire master until he no longer has use for me.

There is no escape. Nowhere to run. Follow the rules or die.

I don’t want to die.

Darius

Twenty-two years of conditioning has crafted the perfect poison–a weapon my enemies won’t see coming. I’ll break her, train her, and use her to take down everyone who stands in my way.

She’s alluring. She’s perfect.

And she’s mine.

Welcome to the future where the superior bloodlines make the rules.
Proceed at your own risk.

****

“Darius,” I breathed as darkness dimmed the stars. Some part of me knew we were heading down a dangerous path. I struggled to emerge enough to warn him, to beg him…

“D…” My mouth felt dryer than it should. Heavy. I tried to lick my lips but couldn’t move my tongue.

Everything felt so much cooler than moments ago.

Numb.
Darius.
Midnight consumed my vision as I blinked into a starless night.

So alone. I always expected to die…

I never expected to want to live.

Until today. Until Darius inspired hope.

Another cruel Vampire joke.

I should have known…

Chastely Bitten by Lexi C. Foss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So I read this one as A-the whole idea behind this series really intrigued my sense of curiosity: its just such an imaginative endeavour and B-I signed up to Arc read the next in this series and it’s always better to start at the beginning and in this case no hardship at all as this was just fantastic reading. This was a dark dystopian read: A world in the future where Vampires and Lycanthropes are now top of the food chain and humans are cattle: without any rights whatsoever and solely reduced to property totally at there masters will. Juliet because of her unique bloodline is a blood slave: raised with a single purpose to serve a highborn master for however short a time that may be. With her unique addictive flavour, these humans are the cream of the crop and sell for top dollar.

Purchased at auction by a new master with his own hidden agenda: Darius has a special assignment in place for his new blood slave.

Dark, dirty and decadent ‘Chastely Bitten’ was such an intense experience and at times I felt a deep sense of dread down to the bottom of my very soul. The pathetically short and horrendous lives these humans get to live out well death actually seemed like a small mercy offered up in comparison to there ongoing suffering. So this was narrated in dual Pov which I do prefer. Darius out of the two was the one I took longer to warm up to mainly because of his end game which involved using Juliet to accomplish his hidden agenda. There were times he was so single-minded and coldly focused on his goals even to the detriment of Juliet’s own personal safety that I struggled to like him. Though I did get why he was this way as the importance of his agenda and the role he expected Juliet to play was bigger than his own wants and needs: it still was hard to take his disregard though. Juliets confusion as she tries to overcome her conditioning while still at times having to portray an outward role for the benefit of others perusal was expected. She is no longer a simple sheep but starting to think for herself which is entirely Darius’s intention but he really wants her willing cooperation in these things and not just her blind obedience. It’s understandable that she struggles to some degree with this after years of indoctrination at the hands of her masters. So there were some scenarios here that I wasn’t much a fan of namely the blood sharing of Juliet. It’s for a reason other than just pure gratification so even though I didn’t like it personally: I could still deal somewhat. This was also as you would expect quite dark in places in regards to the current ongoing practices employed by the supernaturals towards the humans. In my opinion, this is a great start to this series: there’s an underground rebellion of the current system underway and I am ever so interested to see in what direction this is heading.

This really did set the stage brilliantly for future story progression a great read that I am happy to recommend.

Despite a near catastrophe, there’s time for a fateful encounter.

Maureen Reaper, eldest daughter of the revered Grim Reaper, avoided an apocalyptic vortex which threatened humanity, but she still has time for gambling. She can’t help it thanks to her curse—the sin of pride. Her latest wager brings her face-to-face with an entity no one has seen or heard from for thousands of years.

Jackal, an entity created by the Devil himself, has never known the comprehension of emotions until the day a witch cursed him to feel for everything he has killed. Unable to bear the new burden of a heavy heart, he sleeps with no intention of ever waking again until someone finds him.

There’s nothing beautiful in their meeting. Enemies by birth, only more so when Maureen straps a collar around his neck all for a bet. She awakens a beast whose every first—every new glare, new craving, and new touch has landed upon her.
Then she learns that the creature she sought out in a game controlled by pride could be the very one that helps turn the tide back in the Reapers’ favour.

But that’s the thing…
Pride is a bitch, and Maureen is her.

Jackal’s Pride by Michelle Gross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“There’s no me without you”

This author is fast becoming an auto-read for me: every book to date of hers I’ve read has knocked my socks off and this one is no exception. This second book in the deadly sins series focuses on reaper Maureen the keeper of Pride and Jackal an entity that hasn’t been active for eons. Jackal has been sleeping away his pain: A scourge upon mankind his only prior purpose was to pave the way for man’s downfall by delivering disease and pestilence in his wake. Upon annihilating a village with his particular talent a witch curses him with her dying breath to feel the pain and suffering of the 137 lives he has taken. Unable to process the sheer depth of emotion from these hearts Jackal chooses to hibernate in his cave sleeping the pain away. That is until Maureen with the intention of winning a bet locates and collars him taking away his free will. So this was a fantastic second part to what is fast becoming a favourite series for me. This had all the ingredients to capture and retain my attention and this was a worthy second instalment to the seven sins saga. It also didn’t hurt that this was also as hot as Hades. Jackal was a real favourite of mine here: his lack of prior emotions and experience with them making for some very amusing situations and while Maureen herself could have been extremely irritating here with her prideful ways. I felt the pair tempered each other ever so nicely: Jackal causing some much-needed humility in His little Monsters behaviour. Jackal’s Pride also continues where bewitching Sloth left off with the battle for mankind’s survival and that of the Reapers hanging in the balance: so you do really need to start this with book one. Jackal himself bringing a whole new element to this particular fight joining the Reapers side in their now ongoing battle. Can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon in regards to this series it’s just that addictive. This one gets a sure hell yeah from my camp. I voluntary reviewed an Arc of Jackal’s Pride (Seven Deadly #2)

Soul Food by Michelle Gross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You’re Food for my soul, food for my heart, You are my greatest delight

What happens when a soul reaper and human cross the love divide: An epic love story that’s what. So I absolutely adored Soul Food: while not my first book by this author this one was my hands-down favourite: quite a feat in itself when I also loved my other toe-dip into these waters. Set in the same world as bewitching Sloth (which is my other read by this author ) this is very much a loosely connected standalone. Soul Food tells the story of Soul Reaper Amit and Rap singer Ruth AKA Soul Goddess/ Dark Goddess. When Amit is drawn to Ruths bright Soul: the essence he survives on he offers her a deal ten years to live her dream before he collects his soul food. Well, what follows was such an entertaining, steamy and engrossing tango of an unusual courtship that I bloody adored. The interaction between Amit and Ruth was so surreal. Amit was such an odd broody contradiction of extremities and the absolute complete opposite to Ruth. Watching him bluntly deadpan his responses to Ruths wishes was so entertaining especially because he was so completely serious in all of his answers. His complete bafflement in normal everyday situations and interactions was so amusing to behold. And his catchphrase I want what you want: priceless. This also had some great secondary characters my favourite being the gremlin Lars

made me chuckle when he told Amit off for playing with his food.

I find this very unfair Sire, Whats Unfair? You told me not to play with my food and that’s exactly what you’re doing.

This was a unique paranormal romance that I consumed in one entire sitting. I have no issues at all recommending this one it was fantastic from start to finish. I voluntary reviewed an Arc of Soul Food.

Knight’s Redemption by Sherilee Gray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Knight’s Redemption (Knights of Hell, #1) was an explosive start to a really imaginative new paranormal series. Always a risk trying on a new author for size in this instance that chance paid off and I will definitely be continuing on with this addictive story. The basic premise here is that we have Knights of hell: part Angel part Demon: protecting humankind from these instruments of evil: whilst at the same time fighting their own inner demon to stop themselves from succumbing to there dark side. These knights have one true mate out there in the world: one special woman who can halt the darkness and stop it encroaching: the light to there dark if you will. Eve is this for Lazarus and despite his rapidly progressing Demon-side, he doesn’t feel he personally deserves or even wants a mate. Lazarus’s past has a huge hold on his present frame of mind: but he needs Eve and also has a job to protect her as she is a demi-demon whose newly emerging powers are like a beacon to the wrong kind as well as her potential new mate. So this was such an easy read managing to capture my interest very easily indeed. Told from dual POV ( which is my favourite ) this was a fascinating view take on the Demons and Angels angle. Being the first in a new series this tantalized rather than bombarded the reader with new information: cleverly setting the stage whilst still withholding a lot of the pieces I will be extremely interested to see where this tale is ultimately heading: no matter I’m fully onboard and invested now. My one criticism here was I wasn’t a big fan of the making assumptions angle. What I mean is deciding what someone is thinking or mind reading without giving the other a chance to actually say: Making decisions by yourself is frankly insulting to the other’s intelligence. Both Eve and Lazarus are both guilty of this particular transgression and the back and forth pull because of this was bloody exhausting and extremely infuriating indeed. but besides this the rest here was fabulous for me: This had just the right balance of action versus romance for me. I for one will be watching closely to see where The Knights Of Hell is heading. This one definitely gets a thumbs up from my corner. I voluntary reviewed an Arc of Knight’s Redemption (Knights of Hell, #1)
