She knew Werewolves weren’t real. Working with one was only the start of her problems.

Charlie is afraid. Since her 18th birthday, strange things have been happening around her—like randomly starting fires or turning things to ice. But things are about to get even weirder.

When two good looking guys turn up in town both wanting her to help them, Charlie doesn’t want anything to do with them. But when of them asks her to help him find something, he gives her an offer she can’t refuse. And Charlie discovers more than she could have suspected.

Because the man she’s helping is a Werewolf—something she knew didn’t exist.

I always wished I had supernatural powers. Now I wish I didn’t.

Sadie’s a dud, a failure–the only one in high school who doesn’t have any kind of supernatural powers. Her psychic bff, Jo, knows something about Sadie’s future, but just won’t tell. And what the heck is going on when one of her teachers starts looking at her while he’s going on about powerful lost keys, portals of madness, and destinies?

Then it all starts.

On her 18th birthday, Sadie starts to feel weird. And when werewolves, vampires, and demons all turn up to spoil her party, the weirdness really ramps up.

Leaving her best friend, her family, and the only town she’s ever known, Sadie must find safety. But while the king of the werewolves can offer her somewhere to hide while she’s learning about her new powers, he can’t stop his psycho witch fiancée from finding new ways to try and kill her. Of course, the murderous tendencies of this psycho witch only get worse when she realises the Werewolf King is, um… attracted to Sadie.

And all that’s before Sadie sets off to try and find one of the lost keys. Before she visits hell. Before she picks up a pet ogre.

And before she realizes just how powerful she can become.

But if it really is her destiny to collect one of the lost keys, will she be able control her newfound power and help save the world and all the people in it she loves? Or will she buckle under the pressure?

She’s about to find out. A mansion surrounded by demons and full of vampires and witches intent on her destruction awaits. Oh, and that psycho-witch fiancée of the Werewolf King. What could possibly go wrong?

Behind the beauty is heartache… unless their love can save them.
Neve Hall has always admired the good works of the civil servants who brought prosperity back to the Nation. She especially respects the Sufferers—empaths who, with the help of technology, anonymously bear others’ troubles for them. But when her assigned empath is abruptly retired, she uncovers certain secrets. Like the identity of her new Sufferer, Micah Ward… and the fact that behind his kind smile is a life filled with loneliness and pain.
The closer Neve grows to Micah, the more desperate she becomes to protect him from a cruel and gruesome fate. But in a world where only a few are allowed the luxury of love, saving Micah comes with a price: Neve must choose between her loyalty to the Nation or her heart—a decision that will take them both on a race for their freedom, and their lives.

When Amanda was a child, her father traveled frequently for business, always bringing her back a book as a present. Whether she was getting lost in the pages of a tale about far-away knights, girls with supernatural powers, or kindly giants, she was quickly hooked on stories.

Over the years, Amanda has followed her own yellow brick road of reading and writing, and although her adventures haven’t involved sword fights or saving the planet from certain annihilation, they have involved jobs in scholarly publishing and marketing, a modest amount of travel, and a lifelong love of novels.

Amanda holds degrees in English from Salve Regina University and Boston College. She lives in southern New Hampshire with her family and a precocious pet poodle named Snickers.

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated #3) by Angela McPherson – Review by Emily Walsh

Hope's Defeat (The Fated #3)Hope’s Defeat
ByAngela McPherson
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hope’s Defeat (The Fated #3) by Angela McPherson was the epic conclusion I was hoping for.

The third and final book in The Fate series, we are taking on a heart stopping journey that has more than one life on the line. I have to say, this is what I’ve been waiting for from this series. Just some housekeeping before we start, this is part of a continuation series, and each book picks up where the last leaves off. So I highly suggest reading the first two books, if not you will be lost and confused. And you will not be able to appreciate the progress and development our characters had displayed throughout. (Especially the MC)

I did have some issues with the other books, but held on as I knew there was something epical great hidden deep within this wonderful dark world, that Angela McPherson has created. I do still have some minor things, but again that all has to do with the MC, and frankly at this point, there’s no need to get into it, as this is the last book.

What I want to stress is how freaking stoked I am about this book. It had a compelling plot, dangerous, dark and heartbreaking. The action starts pretty much right out of the gate, as does the race against time. And Blain, man oh man, I’m starting to wonder if the author hates him or something. Poor guy can’t catch a break. But in all seriousness, that turn brought that extra desperate layer that I believe was missing from the other books. Ethics and morals come into play, and for me, finally got me to like Trinity.

If you haven’t guessed from my gushing, I highly recommend this book, and this series. It gets my high stamp of approval, and my hope you will add this wonder to your collection.

Happy Reading

The Sound of Love (The Sound series #1) by Maria Watts – Review by Emily Walsh

The Sound of Love (The Sound series #1)The Sound of Love
ByMaria Watts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Sound of Love (The Sound series #1) by Maria Watts was a okay read that shows a different side of the teen crushes, and the dreamy boy bands of the 90’s.

My first read by this author, I didn’t know what I was getting into. Though I read YA, it’s more fantasy, dystopian and paranormal. I don’t read much of the contemporary romance types. And this book again showed me why I don’t dwell much into that genera. Why? Well like others I have read, there is a bit of a unrealism to it, yes I know it’s fiction, but if you don’t have some semblance of realisisim for a story, that’s set in the real world, then it makes the story feel silly and unconnecting. And for me, parts of this tale were just that.

The first half of this book was great. Now I wasn’t sold of the whole “I was giving the wrong number, so I punched in some random ones, and low and behold, it worked!” So yeah that was, so far-fetched that it was cringe worthy, but, I put it aside cause Nina and Chris’s conversation were very interesting, fun and sweet. Nina called Christ out on his BS, and Christ was learning about what being a normal teen is like. It reminded me of the days, before internet, and social media. There was almost a cute innocents to it, that just warmed your heart.

Then, she met him, things weren’t as they were one the phone. I’m not going to say what, cause I don’t want to ruin the story. But there’s a personality shift, and frankly, it blindsided me. We spent so much time learning about someone, that who wasn’t not only who Nina thought, but me. But at the same time, I know why it was done, and I’m going to give the authors propbs, for leading both of us stray. Bravo.

And that’s where I’m going to leave this review. It’s one of those books where I have just as many likes as dislikes, and I don’t’ want to go down a rabbit hole. So let’s just end this with my overall impression.

As a whole, this book isn’t bad. It matches its target audiences, the writing is smooth, professionally well crafted and, has a very nice rhythm to it. I liked how even though I had problems with scenes, or plot points, the writing kept me well engaged and pulled into the story. I truly believe this is a good book to give your teen to read, especially if they’re currently obsessed with a band or singer. It will show them what goes on once the lights of the stage goes off and that mask of perfect is stripped away.

In ending, this books gets my recommendation and gets my approval

Happy Reading
