The Arsonist's Handbook: A Gripping Psychological ThrillerThe Arsonist’s Handbook: A Gripping Psychological Thriller by L.A. Detwiler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a gripping story with an end that will leave your mind blown! L.A. Detwiler tells the story of a teenager named Jameson Mills. He is a boy looking for a place to belong. He and his mother live alone. He never knew his father. His mother won’t talk about him.

While searching for his hockey stick, Jameson came across a journal. When he opens it, he realizes that it’s an Arsonist’s Handbook. He decides that his father was an arsonist who couldn’t stay around because the need to burn was an all-consuming need. Jameson reads it from cover to cover learning the art of starting a fire. He then decides that at sixteen he needs a path to follow. He will become an arsonist like his father. Arson fires have been burning around his town. He’s sure his father is back, and he wants to make him proud.

After spending the night in the local motel with a prostitute, Pete Andrews is called by his wife who is shrieking at him about where he has been. An arsonist has set fire to his house. Maria, the person he left to babysit, got out safely, but not his son. His newborn son, Tanner, had died in the blaze. This sets Pete on a path of revenge. He will find who killed his son and make them pay.

Avenging Devil Part 1 (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #3) by Manda Mellett – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

Avenging Devil Part 1: Satan's Devils MC San DiegoAvenging Devil Part 1: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Avenging Devil Part 1 is the third book in the San Diego chapter if Manda Mellett’s Satan’s Devils series, and the first in a two-part story. (It ends on a cliffhanger – be warned!).
Avenging Devil is pretty dark, even by the standards of the other Satan’s Devils books which address plenty of difficult and at times scary issues. I would definitely recommend reading some of the other Satan’s Devils books first – Being Lost is the first in the San Diego chapter and a good place to start. Avenging Devil starts with scenes in a different Motorcycle Club that’s incredibly violent and disrespectful and for me knowing that the Satan’s Devils aren’t at all like that helped me get through those scenes.
I could not put this book down, and when I had to at times I was still thinking about it. And I knew it was a two part story and could see I was getting near the end but I was still totally unprepared for the cliffhanger. I went straight to get hold of the second part only to realise it’s not out yet. Oh no! So if you’re as impatient as me you might want to wait until the 23rd July 2021 so you can read both parts of the story together.
I really like the ever-growing family of characters in the Satan’s Devils. From Grumbler’s musical hobbies to Snips’ toothless grins, they’re a fun group and bring moments of lightness and comic relief to the stories.
For me, this is a five-star read and I cannot WAIT for the second part to come out! I would not recommend this as a starting point in the series – there are plenty of good entry points (I started off with Paladin’s Hell, you could also start with Being Lost, Turning Wheels or Road Tripped) and this is a great series whether or not you’re interested in motorcycles – the characters are fantastic and Mellett presents a wonderfully human and diverse array of characters and relationships.

Tangled Roots (Witches of Willow Creek: Tangled Magic Series Book 1) by Denise D. Young – Review by Katie Kearney

Tangled Roots (Tangled Magic, #1)Tangled Roots by Denise D. Young
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tangled Roots (Witches of Willow Creek: Tangled Magic Book 1) by Denise D. Young. If you’re looking for a book that’s got just about everything in it you could possibly want go get this one right now. I typically need to be very in a paranormal type stories. But this one had no problem grabbing my attention and keeping me firmly hooked from start to finish. Each character brings something unique to the storyline and they pulled me into their world with ease and I loved getting lost in the pages with them. This was a bit of a faster feeling paced storyline but it wasn’t rushed and lacking in that regard. It’s easy to read and has a great storyline. The author does a wonderful job of making a story world you love being in. I’m giving this a four star review and highly recommend it. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Avenging Devil Part 1: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego by Manda Mellett. This author ALWAYS takes me on a ride I never want to end. This book definitely isn’t for the faint of heart but it’s so worth every heart stopping moments it’s got. I’m a sucker for characters that have had life test them in ways no one should be able to survive and yet survive and thrive they do. These characters grabbed me by the heart and I won’t be forgetting them any time soon. This is a part one so keep that in mind if you don’t like waiting but oh is that wait going to be oh so good in the end. The characters are complex and relatable, they pulled me in with an ease that can sometimes be rough to accomplish but this author did it effortlessly. The storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I can’t wait for part two and even more from this amazing author. Five stars all the way and highly recommended!

Her Blackened Rose (The Blackened Series Book 3) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Her Blackened Rose (Blackened #3)Her Blackened Rose by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In book 3 you see Astrid and Irsa again. Only this time a little different. After book 2 Irsa has changed a little. She’s not the same witch as from before. There’s something different about her.

You see a different side of Astrid this time. You still see him as Isras constant companion, and lover , but you see something completely different. Almost possessive.
I was glad to see more from his perspective and more about his history! They both prevail over their monsters and it’s not over yet! I can’t wait to read more about Isra!!!

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened Series Book 1) By Isra Sravenheart – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Her Blackened Soul (The Blackened, #1)Her Blackened Soul by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. The perspective wasn’t quite exactly first person and not fully third person, but the narrative was done beautifully. I was quite sad the entire book for Irsa. It mentions a big event that happened to her, that made her go dark, it never mentions it fully just referring to it as the “it” event. The entire time I could see how this changed her and how much she really didn’t care. Then comes Kane and Astrid. I wanted to kill Kane myself for what he did. He’s your a typical “I’m gods gift to the world” arrogant cocky SOB. I wanted to strangle him and his “poor me it’s my fault” pity party.
I absolutely loved when Astrid was introduced. He is Irsa’s perfect match in every way. He doesn’t care that she’s what she is. He supports her no matter what she does. I really hope to see more of their relationship blossom and see more of these two. I’m hoping we get more background of Irsa. What is “the event?” She keeps referring to. Can’t wait to read the next book!!

Her Blackened Heart (The Blackened Series Book 2) by Isra Sravenheart – Review by Crystal Jimmo

Her Blackened HeartHer Blackened Heart by Isra Sravenheart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Isra has done it again. She wrote a beautiful second book and gave us more perspectives of Miss Isra the witch. The ending of book 2 absolutely broke my heart for Astrid. I hope this isn’t the end for these two.

Isra this book grew. She surprised me with how much she got better but still kept true to her dark roots. I got some whiplash from her good choices and bad choices and even sometimes her thought process. I think that’s what made her more relatable. I’m constantly going back and forth between good and bad things.

You definitely see a darker side to Astrid this book. But it raises more questions. What about his past does he not want known?
I can’t wait to read book 3!

Avenging Devil Part 1 (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #3) by Manda Mellett – Review by Melissa Agena

Avenging Devil Part 1: Satan's Devils MC San DiegoAvenging Devil Part 1: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok, I am now thoroughly convinced that Manda Mellett is an AMAZING author! Avenging Devil Part 1 is the third book in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego Series. What a book this was! It was complex and dark and downright so freaking good! There are so many twists and turns and emotional ups and downs, that you really don’t know what to do with yourself at times. Saffie hasn’t had the easiest life but when she marries into the MC world she never expected the life that she has. She knows she needs to get out and fast but she doesn’t even know how to attempt to leave. That’s when Niran comes in and knows that he needs to help her. Reading this book makes my heart break for Saffies character and Niran shows up when Saffie needs him the most. I loved this book and the author that wrote it. It already states that this book is Part 1 so therefore you know that this is a cliffhanger and the second book is around the corner. But what you don’t know is how much of an impact the cliffhanger really is! However, you do need to read the book to find out! You can read this book as a standalone but you know me, I always say to start at the beginning. You won’t be disappointed!
