Review: Hunt The Moon By Karen Chance

ISBN:0451413075 (ISBN13: 9780451413079)
edition language:English
series: Cassandra Palmer #5


Cassandra Palmer recently defeated a god, which you'd think would buy a girl a little time off. But it doesn't work that way when your job description is Pythia-the world's chief clairvoyant. Cassie is busier than ever, trying to learn about her power, preparing for her upcoming coronation, and figuring out her relationship with the enigmatic sexy master vampire, Mircea.

But someone doesn't want Cassie to become Pythia, and is willing to go to any lengths to make sure the coronation ceremony never happens- including attacking her mother before Cassie is even born


We follow Cassie, the new Pythia, as she finds her way in this new role. She doesn’t want to be Pythia and has repeatedly told everyone that will listen and even those who won’t. She is in a struggle because she just doesn’t think she has what it takes to be a great Pythia like the ones before her. She has not had any formal training and was just thrown into this whole mess. It seems the power chose her and now she is stuck with it. Follow her as she finds herself mixed up and turned around when it comes to everything…from something as simple as keeping a dress nice to something as complex as whom she is in love with. She has many a romantic thought about her bodyguard (whom by the way has a huge secret that is revealed in this book) and she is also trying to “date” a vampire (who is trying to keep her quarantined to home so she won’t get hurt) throw in the mages who are after her, a new God, and is that a FREAKING DRAGON????(Well, you will see) along with running into her mom (who has been dead for years) and this makes for a really awesome story!
I took it upon myself to start at the beginning of the series and let me just tell you…this one is my favorite so far! It has all kinds of twists and turns in the sequences and it is really told well. I loved the characters and I can find myself getting frustrated right along with Cassie. The story reads really well and I found myself not wanting to put it down. Please go out and get this book it really is well worth the time!!
I give this 5 Howls!

Review: Touch The Dark

Touch the Dark (Cassandra Palmer, #1)Touch the Dark by Karen Chance

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cassie is in for a fight. Both against the vamp who basically stole her life and her destiny. She is a seer, can see ghosts and the future. She escaped the vamp who killed her parents and held her prisoner(though it was a very guilded cage) and now she finds herself on the run from him again. Tony is a mean vamp who has decided if he can't have her then no one will. She turns to the Senate (the governing body of vamps) where she incounters Mircea, Tony's Master. She needs their help to keep away from Tony and kill him if possible. However, they want something from her. Enter the mage Pritkin, he is a Silver Circle mage(they are sorta good) and he outwardly hates her. It seems she is to be the next Pythia(the one person who can alter the timeline and whom no one challanges) Huh...this is crazy...cassie doesn't want it at all....


I though this book was really good. I know there are some out there who say it is too much like The Anita Blake novels, but I have to disagree. While some of the underlying tones are the same overall the series of events and the characters are really nothing like those in the Anita Blake novels. I love how Chance put all these various characters from history into her books. From Kit Marlowe to rasputin. you have one extreme to another when it comes to the characters and I love it. It is a seamless transition between history and present. We get a little background on the characters just enough to know whom they are and then the story is off and running again. I am waiting to see what might become of the relationships Cassie is developing and how her possibly being the next Pythia will eventually turn out. By the end of this book I was biting my nails and frantically searching online to find the next book.

Review: Secrets Of The Demon

Secrets of the DemonSecrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kara is a demon summoner. In this book she finds herself working closely with Ryan(whom she secretly can't decide if she loves him) and Zack, both special agents with the FBI. Their relationship is a struggling one. he hates demons..and kara just can't figure out why. They are working on a task force together to "investigate financial crimes". Though that is not really all the task force does. It takes care of all the crimes that are "wierd". So in this book they are trying to find out who or what is going around taking out members of a band. It all started with the lead singer and has progressed from there. All they keep finding are smudges of mud. Meanwhile Kara someone is trying to summon she summons demons. She can't figure out what is going on so she summons her demon Lord to give her a few answers. He is very mad that someone would try to summon his Kara. He tells her to summon another demon who will protect her. So she goes about worrying who is killing band members and who is trying to summon her. Towards the end she finds out som startling things about Special Agent Ryan that has her questioning if he really is just human.....

My Review:

I really loved this book! The plot seemed a little stretched at times but all together it was a great book. The characters relationships have deepened and have taken on a more normal feel to me. There is plenty of action and intrique. A lot of the questions that were left un-answered at the end of Mark of The Demon have been answered in this book. However, at the end of this one there ae more questions. I do know that the anticipation is unbearable....I really want to know what is going to happen next! :) I can not say enough that this book is so far my favorite of the series. The second book seemed to fizzle out, but Diana redeems herself in this one. It is action packed, mystery, paranormal romance, and detective/forensics all rolled into one dynamic flowing story.

 I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see where Diana decideds to take things.

eARC Review: Dreaming of the Wolf by Terry Spear

Jake, (the pack leader) is very upset when he goes to deliver his art to the gallery and finds that it is closed. But his mood lightens when he spots a lovely and mysterious woman. It brings up questions of who is she and how can he meet her?

Alicia is a bounty hunter (recently acquired position) and is on the hunt for her newest target Mario. She is taking this one personal because Mario is possibly involved in her mother’s death.

 Jake (the handsome stranger) saves her from drawing  un-wanted attention to herself. They get along great. But can these two put aside their pasts and make it work?

Alicia has problems with feelings. Feeling towards men, she has a general squick factor when it comes to being emotionally involved with men.

So I was anxious to see where this story was going to lead. I was pleasantly surprised, as I am sure you all will be too!


This was a quick read. It had action and the scenes were well written. There is chemistry between the main characters that is completely natural. It makes you wonder if they truly are fictional characters or based off of real life people.  I loved the fact that the dynamics between characters was so smooth. I cannot say this enough time…I have read too many books where the relationships seem strained almost forced. This book was a smooth read. Seamless even. I had no problem following the story and finding myself immersed in what would happen next.

I loved the fact that both main characters noticed each other from a distance. It was all mystery and romance. It was a nice change from the usual stuff for me!

Anyhow overall it is a good quick read. Action, Romance, a little laughter (at least for me)

Definitely worth the time to read this one guys!

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to books? Maybe you don’t like love triangles or thin plots? Tell us about it!

I think the only two things that really bothers me is when the story is so slow and dragging on and on, I definately get so bored with that and stop reading. And when it's a series and the last few books are really disappointing, it's like the author is just writing the books just to get books out there for the series, and then they keep making more books for that series and you hope it's gonna make up for the last few but doesn't, that's another pet peeve. But other than that I love "love triangles", nothing like two guys fighting over :)
