Book Review Day: Created Darkly

Necromancer Kris Chase's purpose is simple. Blindly raise the dead for the primary elite, self necro-governed group, the Center. The problem is, she couldn't care less about what the Center expects from her. Instead, she is more content with snuffing out the life-force from every vile creature she can get her hands on; the same monsters her brethren indiscriminately create… for the right price.

Until the life of someone dear to her is threatened.

With the stakes raised insurmountably, she finds herself bound by desperation to create the very darkness she always fought against being consumed by, going against everything she has ever believed in.

Holy cow!!! This book is a nonstop thrill ride to the very last page. I normal dislike vampire books, but this is starting to change me! Gena has a way with words, that makes you feel like you are watching the action. And lets not forget all the tension, just, wow. I could feel the sexual build up between main characters mixed into the need to save a life! I truly enjoyed every words and will be passing it around to all my friends. Completely worthy of reading and not stopping until the end!

Book Review Day: In Dreams

Working in the homicide division of the Detroit Police Department, has made Angelo Baldoni, a third generation officer, pretty much immune to the depths of depravity seen in his years on the force. When a young woman is brutally murdered, the case of Hope Cooper can change the course of his life. 
Hope, an outgoing young woman with everything going for her, lost it all the night that she was faced with the vicious eyes of a murderer. Stuck in limbo, Hope is confused and scared, trying to right the wrong done to her. Able to visit people in their dreams, Hope latches onto Angelo in hopes he can catch her killer. 
Angelo was raised with a strong belief in the afterlife and the dreams of Hope don’t go unnoticed. With the help of his partner, Bobby, he aims to catch the killer before he strikes again. However, a cold case causes Angelo's past to merge with Hope’s case. 
Will he keep his feelings at bay to find the murderer? Or will it be too late? 

A murder mystery that will drive you to read more is how I felt about this book. Meeting Detective Baldoni set a typical New York cop feel to the story, however this is no typical tale. Angelo, Baldoni’s first name, is one of a huge family and a second generation cop. Deep down, he’s just trying to survive since the loss of his fiancĂ©.  Who was brutally murdered four years before.
Hope was murdered while working, by a man she knew, but had no clue he was so evil. She finds herself in and out of Angelo’s dreams, guiding him through what she can remember, leading up to her death. Angelo also discovers how his family mingled into Hope’s life. Heather left me feeling his fear, Angelo’s need to help his family and do the right thing at the same time. This was just such an amazing read and truly gripping. And I mean heart stopping moments, people. So pick up your copy today and jump right in. As you know I’m not giving anymore away, and trust me, you’ll thank me for that later.

Special Release Day Review! Link to buy in comments!

I enjoyed this tale of a man's journey to reclaim his thrown. I was asked to review this ARC and gladly accepted. Though this isn't my normal read, I managed to like this one a little. The setting was laid out in detail throughout the entire book, and the characters left lasting images in my mind. I could almost feel the pain as the pages progressed. Giving me a good overall feeling about recommending this title! 
I did find a few slower places were things felt over-explained. There were also some conversations that felt more modern than medieval, throwing me for a loop, and taking time for me to re-read several pages to understand where the author was going with the book. 
Totally get yourself a copy, everyone deserves a good read now and then, and this one will keep you going from page to page. For more on this author, just click the link below.

Book Review Day: Every Crooked Kingdom

Every Crooked Kingdom is a coming-of-age story about the new beginnings of Wade Duke Larson, an intelligent and obnoxiously arrogant West Virginia boy desiring a life that would never be forgotten. Giving into peer-pressure, Wade’s weak will serves to change his life in ways he could never imagine.He was forced outside his comfort zone and away from the future of the perfect life he envisioned for himself. Wade and his friends make a slight detour to Las Vegas. In the City of Sin he will stumble upon his real meaning, and one kingdom’s collapse leads to heartbreak and a life that will never be the same.

This book truly is amazing. Learning to get out of your comfort zone to find yourself is a huge step for anyone. But our main dude, Wade, makes is seem flawless. I, for one, never had that kind of courage at just 17. Making him relatable and likable at the same time. I enjoyed the love at first sight, and felt the desperation, as the young couple met and fell quickly into love. 
There were a few things that didn't feel right in the conversations between some characters. Some very blunt and out of places sentences early on, threw me off a little. 
Though I will applaud Alex for giving references that I had to look up to understand. I like a good challenge. Now, normally I would post links, however this book is being re-released sometime next year! However seem what Alex Katt is up to at:
