Review: Rise of the Fae

Rise of the Fae (ARC Review)
The Society Book 2
Published November 10, 2015 by Lyrical Press
5 BLOODY FANGS!!!

"Its hard to find someone who can love all parts of you, the good along with the bad. Especially when have more than one person living inside of you."

Synopsis -

In a post-virus New World, authentic humans are a hot commodity. And The Society rules.

Neeman has tried everything to overcome the pain of both heartbreak and being forcibly turned into a vampyr. When he meets the headstrong Selene in a nightclub, she could be the change he needs. Her beautiful human-like features stand out among the vamps, and he has no choice but to bring her back to his Tracking Squad’s compound before she gets herself killed.

Charged with stopping a demon invasion, Selene has been sent back to the Earth Realm by the Fae. But en route, she loses the talisman that can keep her darker nature, and her impulses, under control. With Vampires now ruling Earth there are more vices than ever to distract her from her mission. Especially Neeman, whose hard body and piercing gaze awakens a primal desire within her. He’s the only one who can protect her from The Society, and from even darker forces on the horizon…but he can’t protect her from himself. (Goodreads)


Review -

In Reign of the Vampire, Rebekah R. Ganiere introduced us to a new breed of vampires, with three distinct classifications; the Vampires whom were born, the vampyr who were bitten and the vamps who were victims of an experiment gone horribly wrong. Readers also learned that the human race was close to extinction, as well as the existence of demons. This action packed addition to the series introduces the fae, and Tinkerbell they are not.

By the end of Reign of the Vampire, most were thinking of Neeman as a whiny, conceded bitch. Before getting to the end of Chapter one those feelings will completely change. Readers will get a much more in depth look at the man and start seeing him as much more than just a jealous ex. By the middle of the book he will develop an even bigger cheering squad than Mason had.  

Neeman never wanted to become a vampyr and has always hated and mistrusted that part of himself, and always mourned his mortal life. Having been able to find comfort within Dannika and then losing her just made things seem all the worse. But when a seemingly harmless 'human' walks onto the dance floor of his bar of choice, his entire world gets flipped upside down real quick. The vixen seems to be just looking for trouble in the worst possible way, and looking to make his head split in two. And though he can't seem to keep track of whether or not her eyes our purple or green, the more he learns about her, the more he wants her. But trouble seems to just follow in her wake and he knows she is hiding something that could destroy what little peace left in this plain of the Earth.

Most people have a metaphorical hidden inner demon, some like Selene have a very real hidden inner demon. One hell bent on causing chaos and destruction wherever she goes. That isn't her biggest problem. She has been sent back to Earth, something she couldn't be more joyous about if it hadn't come with the mission she's been sent on. If she goes through with what it is she's supposed to do, not only will she lose what little family she has left, but the one male she has come to love. And while the vampires may be sick and twisted in their own ways, they have at least kept up some semblance of peace.  The same won't be said if the fae or demons have their way.

This book is for true fans of the lore and vampires who most definitely do not shine unless they're glistening with sweat, or blood. Full of action, blood, guts, chaos, mayhem, plot twists, characters full of life and some romance thrown in between. A series to be enjoyed by any gender, so long as they are not squeamish. Though this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading book 1 first.

Author Info

With no turn-out and a soul deep love of chocolate, her ballerina dreams floated away as high as the moon, equidistant with the astronaut aspiration. She stuck with writing. After 22 years, she got the call. Or rather, she got the email. Syphon’s Song, a 2012 Maggie Award of Excellence finalist, will be released March 3, 2014 from Lyrical Press.

Now transplanted to the South, Anise lives in Georgia with her family and a cast of characters that flit around in her head.

Black Wolf’s Revenge by Tera Shanley
Silver Wolf Clan # 2

Blurb
He’ll risk it all to bring her home.

Morgan Carter witnessed her sister’s murder, has been turned into a werewolf and is now raising her young niece. Then her fiance, Greyson Crawford, proves he wants to be with her for the wrong reasons, and she knows her life couldn’t be any stranger. Devastated, she retreats to her cozy house in the city with her sister’s little girl, Lana. There, they’ll have normalcy, and maybe eventually, even happiness.

But Morgan’s the only living silver wolf. Her uniqueness—the ability to produce werewolf offspring—means, without Grey’s protection, she’s unknowingly put herself and Lana in deadly danger. Other werewolves want to claim her for their pack, and she’s the easiest, most tempting prey ever.

When they strike, Grey has to find her and rescue her before it’s too late. Not so simple a task; he has only the uncontrollable beast inside him, Wolf, and an unlikely pack of allies he’s forced to rely on. Can he get to her in time? And if he does, can he convince her he’s there for the right reasons, saving them both?

Author Info
Born and raised in small town Texas, Tera Shanley grew up in books. Her cousin gifted her a signed copy of Beauty by Bill Wallace when she was young and that was it for her. So smitten was she with getting lost in a story, that while other eleven year olds her age were groaning at the accelerated reader program in school, she was racking up the points just for fun.

Balancing chronic book-wormyness is her devotion to the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, camping - her soul is happiest out of doors. And lucky for Tera, her family feels the same. She grew up a wild child helping her grandma ranch cattle, and has a hundred memories out in the wilderness which tend to influence her books.
When she's not eating chocolate, slinging rifles, or soaking up some sun, she's lost in a book, but these days it's more often one she's writing. From historic western romance, to paranormal romance, to apocalyptic (zombie) romance, the genre doesn't matter quite as much to her as the love story.
She currently lives with her husband and two young children, and is owned by two crazy mini-cujos.

Love, Lattes and Mutants by Sandra Cox
Mutants # 1

Blurb

Finding love is hard, even when you aren’t a mutant.

Like most seventeen-year-olds, Piper Dunn wants to blend in with the crowd. Having a blowhole is a definite handicap. A product of a lab-engineered mother with dolphin DNA, Piper spends her school days hiding her brilliant ocean-colored eyes and sea siren voice behind baggy clothing and ugly glasses. When Tyler, the new boy in school, zeroes in on her, ignoring every other girl vying for his attention, no one, including Piper, understands why...

Then Piper is captured on one of her secret missions rescuing endangered sea creatures and ends up in the same test center where her mother was engineered. There she discovers she isn’t the only one of her kind. Joel is someone she doesn’t have to hide from, and she finds herself drawn to the dolph-boy who shares her secrets. Talking to him is almost as easy as escaping from the lab. Deciding which boy has captured her heart is another story.

Marked Review

Marked by Rebecca Zanetti
Dark Protectors Book 7
Published December 22, 2014 by Lyrical Press
5 Demonic Fangs!!

"The highly anticipated story of Zane, Janie and Kalin was well worth its weight in blood.'

Synopsis -

Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice… (Goodreads)

Review -

A love story that began and has been building heavily since the beginning of the Dark Protectors series finally comes to a head. Janet, Kalin and Zane are children no longer and decisions need to be made, as well as sacrifices. The build up of this relationship has been deep and intense. When the three finally meet within the flesh outside of their safe dream world, sparks, fists, heat and blood will fly.

Janie always knew the one she would choose to be with, having felt a deep love for Zane from the very moment he stepped into her dreams. Kalin always a dark mystery whom she considered a friend, also knowing as she grew older his feelings for her went beyond the realm of friendship. Though Janie would never say the Kurjan truly loved her, seeing the murderous psycho her grew up to be there's no way he possibly even begin to understand such an emotion. Janie also knew that though she loved Zane, their love may not stand a chance one the prophecy she was to fulfill came to fruition. Which was much easier to accept before she had him by her side and their love morphed into something consuming both their hearts and souls. To end the war and bring peace she is willing to give up her own life, but not him or her family. But, when you have psychotic enemies determined to bring entire races down to the brink of extinction, and the patience that comes with immortality, losing most everyone she loves becomes almost inevitable.

Zane has been a mystery to the entire Karys family, including his Janie Belle. They all knew he was part vampire, but when he enters the peace talks behind his uncle, the shock of his genetics just may be enough to start a secondary war. Upon learning who he truly is inside and out, however, they discover he is more ally than enemy. A boy turned killer, Zane has been sacrificing everything just to keep his family safe. But when asked to sacrifice the one woman he has ever loved other than his mother, his uncle sets in motion a series of events that will lead to only one outcome, either Zane or his uncle must die.

Rebecca Zanetti truly delivers in the highly anticipated Marked. Readers will be more than pleased in how the story turns out, and will shed more than a few tears due to laughter, and heartache. Action packed from the very beginning, a bumpy ride sure to please all Dark Protectors' fans. Marked will answer both questions asked and unasked, as well as giving updates on all of the couples fans have come to love, and a conclusion safely ends this chapter within the Realm and begins a new one with the next generation of vampires, shifters, witches, demons and so much more. This entire series' is a must read for all paranormal lovers who need heat, lust, love, blood and gore.
