{Arc Review} The Haunted by Danielle Vega

Book Summary:
From Danielle Vega, YA’s answer to Stephen King, comes a new paranormal novel about dark family secrets, deep-seated vengeance, and the horrifying truth that evil often lurks in the unlikeliest of places.
Hendricks Becker-O’Malley is new in town, and she’s bringing baggage with her. With a dark and wild past, Hendricks doesn’t think the small town her parents moved her to has much to offer her in terms of excitement. She plans on laying low, but when she’s suddenly welcomed into the popular crowd at school, things don’t go as expected.
Hendricks learns from her new friends that the fixer-upper her parents are so excited about is notorious in town. Local legend says it’s haunted. Hendricks doesn’t believe it. Until she’s forced to. Blood-curdling screams erupt from the basement, her little brother wakes up covered in scratches, and something, or someone pushes her dad down the stairs. With help from the mysterious boy next door, Hendricks makes it her mission to take down the ghosts . . . if they don’t take her first.

My Review:

What goes bump in the night at Steele House?

Being the new girl is hard as it is, also dealing with stress from the past. With so much going on, is she really loosing her mind, or something evil is in her new home?

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L Armentrout

Book Summary:
Every touch has its price
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

My Review:

Stone Cold Touch is the second book of The Dark Elements series. This first book is call, White Hot Kiss. Which I have recently review. If you have yet read the first book or neither of these books, you may skip reading review.

The book picks up where book one left off. Roth is trap in hell and Layla life must go on. She grows closer now to Zanye and her powers may be changing also. Her classmates are acting out and strange accidents happening around her. When Roth comes back into her life, she wonders what’s wrong with her. Could a strange new being at fault or could Layla slowly becoming a demon?

This book is more action pack like the first one. It very hard to choose with boy to fall for, Zanye or Roth. I’m mostly team Bambi the snake, which I have fallen in love with. The book has some new creatures in it. If you have yet read this series, then you need to check it out.

Happy Reading!!!

An Affair of Poisons by Addie Thorley

Book Summary:
No one looks kindly on the killer of a king.
After unwittingly helping her mother poison King Louis XIV, seventeen-year-old alchemist Mirabelle Monvoisin is forced to see her mother’s Shadow Society in a horrifying new light: they’re not heroes of the people, as they’ve always claimed to be, but murderers. Herself included. Mira tries to ease her guilt by brewing helpful curatives, but her hunger tonics and headache remedies cannot right past wrongs or save the dissenters her mother vows to purge.
Royal bastard Josse de Bourbon is more kitchen boy than fils de France. But when the Shadow Society assassinates the Sun King and half of the royal court, he must become the prince he was never meant to be in order to save his injured sisters and the petulant dauphin. Forced to hide in the sewers beneath the city, Josse’s hope of reclaiming Paris seems impossible―until his path collides with Mirabelle’s.
She’s a deadly poisoner. He’s a bastard prince. They are sworn enemies, yet they form a tenuous pact to unite the commoners and former nobility against the Shadow Society. But can a rebellion built on mistrust ever hope to succeed?

My Review:

An Affair of Poisons is a prefect stand alone read. I do enjoy the fantasy world of it and the characters in it.

Mirabelle is skill making poisons and playing with the art of alchemy. She unknowingly kill the king, thanks to her mother. Now not liking what her mother stands for, she runs away. While she runs off, she bumps into unlikely allie. Will she be able to fix all the pain she done?

Josse is the bastard son of the king. He would do anything to keep his family safe. Now that the royal kid in hiding, it’s up him to run back and forth in town for food and stuff. Bumping into Merabelle may be his ticket to save the kingdom. Can he really trust her?

This book was fast pace and full of action. It has magical elements, and little romance. Looking for a new fantasy book without worrying on cliffhangers, then check out this standalone read.

Happy Reading!!!

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L Armentrout

Book Summary:
One kiss could be the last.
Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

My Review:

White Hot Kiss was such a great read. I’m slowly reading most of Jennifer L Armentrout’s books. This has so many cool creatures to be scare of or to love. You can fall in love with most of the characters in the book and the story it told.

Layla is pretty cool in the book. She is half warden and half demon. She struggles fighting her demon side on regular basics. Also she helps the wardens out to tag demons. Not sure where she belongs at times, she bumps into a high power demon. Roth might hold the key to her pass.

Roth is this hot looking demon. He saves Layla life a few times. Even let Layla understand who she really is. Roth makes Layla conflicted with the wardens and her true purpose in life. What secrets does Roth hold for Layla?

This book is a quick read for me. I enjoyed the world building where monsters roam free and try to fit in. Where some might want to end the world. The wardens try to keep the peace between humans and demons. So many characters to enjoy. If you in mood for some action pack fun, then you should give this book a chance.

Happy Reading!!!

My Review:

In Another Life was such a good book. I like the storyline about adoption and affects it has on the two main characters in the book.

I like Chole in the book, she had everything she ever wanted. A loving family until it starts to fall a part. Starting a new school year and finding out where she belongs in the world. When accidentally bumping in Cash, her life changes forever.

I also did like Cash in the book. He comes off very mysterious person. He has a loving family but he does not feel like he belongs there. When he frist see Chole, she looks like his family missing daughter. What secrets are kept from these two all these years?

This book was a very addictive read. I finish it in about one night. You enjoy the twists and turns throughout the book. If looking for something new, then your in luck.

Book Summary:
A thief. An officer. A guardian.
Three strangers, one shared destiny . . .
When the Last Days came, the planet of Laterre promised hope. A new life for a wealthy French family and their descendants. But five hundred years later, it’s now a place where an extravagant elite class reigns supreme; where the clouds hide the stars and the poor starve in the streets; where a rebel group, long thought dead, is resurfacing.
Whispers of revolution have begun—a revolution that hinges on three unlikely heroes…
Chatine is a street-savvy thief who will do anything to escape the brutal Regime, including spy on Marcellus, the grandson of the most powerful man on the planet.

My Review:

Sky without Stars was a epic adventure. The storyline was so good and I did liked some of the characters in it.

Chatine, is like a loner in the book. She dresses as a boy to steal from people. She dreams of leaving Laterre and her family behind. She is offer a job to spy on on Marcellus. Will she be able to break free from her life?

Marcellus, he always following the rules. He has a good heart and don’t like how things are run. Marcellus is torn to follow his heart or his grandfather wisdom and rule. In the end will he be able to chose the right path?

Alouette, has been isolated all her life. Living in a secret bunker, training and protecting the old life ways. Her curiosity of the outside gets the best of her, when she ends up saving Marcellus life. What secrets truths hidden in the outside world for her?

This book is a very detailed world building. It’s told in three points of views of Alouette, Marcellus. and Chatine. I like the how these three strangers interact with each other. If your in mood for some syfy, little romance and cool new worlds. Then your in for a treat.

Happy Reading!!!!!
