Tortured Souls (The Orion Circle Book 1) by Kimber Leigh Wheaton

Tortured Souls (The Orion Circle Book 1) by Kimber Leigh Wheaton

**I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review**

3 ½ stars!

For teenager Kacie Ramsey, life should be full of fun, high school, and friends – but that’s not the case…as she literally SEES the ghosts of the dead.  In the morning, they are sitting across the breakfast table from her…in the afternoon, they are following her to math class….and in the evening, they hang out on her couch with her.  Not at her request – oh no!  Since her mother left her family saying she just couldn’t handle the supernatural things that were occurring in Kacie’s presence, it left her and her brother distant, and her relationship with her father strained.  Since then, she has tried to push the ghosts away – simply pretending they aren’t there – since no one believes her anyway.

But one evening at a party, the boy she has been crushing on forever, Logan, helps her with an evil spirit that is stalking her…and proceeds to invite her to a prestigious and very secret group called the Orion Circle who deal in all things supernatural – a paranormal research group, they call themselves.  Since Kacie has been having the same recurring brutal nightmare that feel so real she wakes up in a sweat every morning, she figures the group will be a huge help in figuring out WHAT she is, and HOW her “powers” even work.  Well, that and the fact that Logan is part of the group definitely doesn’t hurt either!

So when Kacie and the Orion Group figure out that she is a powerful psychic medium, she begins to understand and come into her own with her powers – with the help of Logan of course, who is a psychic medium as well, she begins to trust herself and her powers.  But when a powerful and evil spirit that bound himself to thirteen children he sacrificed years prior puts Kacie in his crosshairs and chooses her as his new “vessel” when he returns to the earthly world, will it be too late for Kacie – did she learn how to use her gift too late?  Or will Logan and the other Orion Circlers be able to help her send the evil mastermind spirit to the other side, once and for all?

So, first things first…don’t read this before bed – lol!  This is not a “sooth you to sleep” kind of read – in a completely good way!  It’s more of a creepy scary – there’s not really any gore, blood, or guts, but the things that Kacie and the other Orion Circlers happen upon do tend to be on the creepy side.  I think that this is a really good start at a paranormal/ thriller/ romance for Ms. Wheaton – my only complaint is how quickly her and Logan “fall in love” and how quickly her family moves from being completely unsupportive to be in total support of her and all things supernatural.  I really liked Kacie and Logan as characters though – though they had these supernatural gifts, they were still regular teenagers that had the “teen” worries about if so and so likes me, does my hair look ok, etc.  And Kacie is a really strong character and though she may be frightened at times, she overcomes and comes out even stronger on the other side.  Good start to the series – not sure if the ghost stories were for me personally, but I think that this is very appropriate for teens and YAs alike!

seasons 1

Six Moon Summer (#1) (Seasons of the Moon) by SM Reine

Rylie’s been bitten. She’s changing. And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf… forever.

Rylie Gresham hates everything about summer camp: the food, the fresh air, the dumb activities, and the other girls in her cabin. But the worst part is probably being bitten by a werewolf. Being a teenager is hard enough, but now she’s craving raw flesh and struggles with uncontrollable anger. If she doesn’t figure out a way to stop the transformation, then at the end of summer, her life is worse than over. She’ll be a monster.


seasons 2


All Hallows’ Moon (#2) (Seasons of the Moon) by SM Reine

The good girl has become the big bad wolf…
Rylie survived a werewolf bite. She’s moved to her aunt’s ranch to enroll in a new school and continue her life–except now she transforms into a monster everymoon and struggles to control her murderous urges.

Without many werewolves left, it’s hard to stay in hiding. A family of hunters–Eleanor, Abel, and Seth–recognize the signs and follow Rylie to her new home. They want to stop her before she murders someone, and the only way to do it is with a silver bullet. Seth soon realizes the werewolf is Rylie, the one monster he failed to kill. Worse yet, he’s still in love with her.

Torn between family and love, Rylie struggles to reconcile her feelings and control the wolf within while Seth fights to do what’s right. But what is right–obeying desire or duty?

seasons 3


Long Night Moon (#3) (Seasons of the Moon) by SM Reine

Something is killing innocent people around Rylie Gresham’s town. The police think it’s a wild animal, but she has other suspicions. There are new kids at school, and they have a lot in common with her: gold eyes, super strength, and a habit of turning furry. It seems Rylie’s not the only werewolf around anymore.

It’s up to Rylie and her werewolf-hunting boyfriend, Seth, to stop the killings. But saving lives doesn’t come naturally to a monster, and territory battles could risk the life of her sickly aunt–not to mention her own. Rylie has no choice but to stand her ground, protect her home, and stop the murders before anyone else gets hurt.

seasons 4


Gray Moon Rising (#4) (Seasons of the Moon) by SM Reine

It’s been almost a year since Rylie Gresham was bitten by a werewolf on Gray Mountain. Now something is beckoning her back to the place she was attacked, along with every other werewolf in the world. But they aren’t the only ones heeding the call. A group of hunters notices them gathering and sees it as their chance to wipe out the entire species.
Seth is about to graduate high school when he learns of the final hunt. He secretly plans to save Rylie and his werewolf brother even though he has to play along with the hunters to do it. But Rylie doesn’t want to be saved. She’s already decided to solve her problems with a silver bullet if answers aren’t waiting on Gray Mountain.

One way or another, everything is about to end–whether it means Rylie’s liberation or the end of her life…

Exiled: Kenly’s Story by Sophie Davis

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00075]

Exiled: Kenly’s Story by Sophie Davis

**I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review**

5 HUGE stars!

Sophie Davis has done it again…pulled us into the world of the Talented and the entire atypical world that they encompass. Though this time around, we get to hear the story of another of the Created – someone that was supposed to be Talia’s protégé back when they were both in TOXIC together…Kenly Baker. And she is a world she is no longer she’s familiar with…London, England – at a time that is instrumental for the Talents or Chromes as they are known in England. Their safety and equality is being brought into question, as the Coexistence Treaty – meant to add a layer of protection for those with Talents – is on the verge of being overturned.

Kenly finds herself in the slums of London, in a frightening world that she isn’t used to – there are new dangers and bone chilling new threats that may be enough to intimidate even a Created such as herself. But when she reluctantly befriends another group of Chromes (Talents) on her journey to lay low and stay off of United’s (the agency that keeps the Talents in line) radar, she learns what relying on someone else is truly about – and maybe realizes a few things about Talia and why she turned “traitor”. Sometimes, there are people worth fighting for – and Kenly has found that in the eccentric group of James, Willa, Riley, and Honora…they’ve been on their own, keeping a low profile so the dreaded Poachers or gangs can’t capture them and sell them into a horrible life of servitude to the “collectors” that gather Chromes like one would collect vases or paintings.

But can Kenly get over her attitude and come together with the lot of friends, or will she run and try to face things on her own? Does Kenly still have some trust left to let them in and help her…perhaps knocking down the walls around her and James’s hearts in the process? Oh goodness, I sure hope so! I am so excited that we got to hear the story from another point of view other than Talia’s – someone without the personal link to TOXIC as Talia did. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Talia and Erik (can’t wait for the next book – eeeeek!), but it was awesome to really get to know someone else that has been effected by being a Created. It was a great story that, of course, ties into the other stories as a whole, but just from Kenly’s shaded POV. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series – another amazing job girls ;-)

Hush (A Lakeview Novel, # 1) by Stacey R. Campbell


Hush (A Lakeview Novel, # 1) by Stacey R. Campbell

**I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review**

4 stars!

This light and breezy read about 17 year old Blakely Henry who just may or may not be a long lost princess to the Tamuran throne was charming and witty.  It touched on all the right notes and gave the reader a little bit of everything – romance, betrayal, mystery, and laughter – all in all a great combination for the intended audience!   The characters are fairly well developed, but seeing as they are teenagers – they of course have some naivety about them that comes off as enduring.

Our heroine Blakely is extremely likeable and funny, just like any typical teen – and Max Ryder, the adorable Scottish gent that is investigating if Blakely is the missing heir to the Tamuran throne, is dependable, smart, and quick witted – even  if he’s completely predictable in his immediate attraction to Blakely.   A great CLEAN book that would be enjoyable for middle school aged kids to adults alike – who knows, maybe you’re really a long lost princess too!

Banded by Logan Byrne

In dystopian Manhattan, society is divided into six zones, with each one representing a citizen’s benefit to society: Stalwart (strength), Astute (intelligence), Collusive (greed), Radiant (beauty), Quixotic (no life direction), and the Altruistic (willingness to help others).  On a citizen’s sixteenth birthday, a computer suggests a new zone for them based on their inherent benefit to society.  When Kalenna Slater is sorted out of her home zone Quixotic and into Altruistic, she thinks things can’t get worse.  Life looks dismal until she meets Gavin, a boy also just sorted into Altruistic who becomes the light needed on her cloudy days.

During sorting she receives a device known as ‘The Band’.  It’s a large watch-like device that never comes off, and it measures a citizen’s karma on a scale from one to one hundred.  If a citizen does good, they gain points.  If a citizen does bad, including breaking laws, they lose points.  When your number reaches zero, the band acts as judge, jury, and executioner, and you are injected with toxins that kill you within minutes.

After sorting, recruits are taken to a three month long mandatory school named HQ.  It’s at HQ she meets new friends from different zones, and finally begins to feel at ease.  Everything goes well until a rare trip home makes her discover that her father, who has been missing for a decade, may have taken part in a terrible program that stands to shake the fabric of society.



boyfriend from hell

Boyfriend From Hell (Falling Angels Saga) by E. Van Lowe

Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together.

“But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes? Of course not…”

The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again. She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago.

Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando. Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships. But neither of the handsome pair is quite what he seems. In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride. Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him. If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL.

“Boyfriend From Hell” is the first book in the Falling Angels Saga from the author of the gruesomely hilarious, “Never Slow Dance With A Zombie.”


twenty eight and a half wishes


Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes (Rose Gardner Mystery Book 1) by Denise Grover Swank

The first book of the USA Today Bestselling series!

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She’s had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone’s toilet’s overflowed, but she’s never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn’t enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

Rose realizes she’s wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She’s well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won’t help with number fifteen– do more with a man. Joe’s new to town, but it doesn’t take a vision for Rose to realize he’s got plenty secrets of his own.

Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they’ll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn’t her biggest worry after all.

Cursed (Cursed Magic Series, Book One) by Casey Odell

The night Claire Tanith’s small village is attacked, her mother sends her alone into the cursed forest, the one she’d been forbidden to enter all her life with these mysterious words: ‘They will protect you.’

On the run from her attackers, she soon finds the forest is not as abandoned as she’d once thought.

Beautiful and elegant, the elves seem to be everything the legends said they would be. But legends sometimes forget the true history of things and Claire’s eyes are soon opened to a world she never knew. One that has been kept from her for most of her life. All Claire wants to do is return home and start looking for her mother, the only family she ever had. But the elves have different plans. The mysterious mark that appeared on her arm isn’t a curse, at least not to them anyway, and before she knows it, she is whisked away on a mission she never agreed to, unless they help her in return.

Now she is stuck on an adventure with the perverted elf, Aeron, and one with an attitude, Farron. But there is more to this adventure than she’d ever hoped for.

Claimed By Light (A Bound By Hades Novel) by Reese Monroe

**I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review**

5 stars!

Having lived for hundreds of years…easy – falling in love and being vulnerable, that is truly terrifying to Gate Keeper (or demon hunter) Halena Girard!  After her sister or Companion as she was called is killed in the line of duty, protecting her, Halena has had a very hard time letting anyone in.  But when a smooth talking Slade Bennet comes walking to up to her at a local bar with ulterior motives of his own, she can’t help but feel something for him…he’s different, she can sense it.

Sent on a mission for the very demons that Halena kills, Slade is there for one thing, and one thing only – to save his little sister Abby from the fate of being a demon the rest of her life…even if that means betraying the gorgeous red-head and turning her over to the demons.  As Slade watches the demons do their worst to Halena, he figures he is just an innocent bystander who is protecting his baby sister, given their parents death when she was young – and of course, Slade now feels responsible for his rebelling sibling.  But is that all there is to it, or was the passion and lust that was between he and Halena real, before he turned her over to be tortured by the demons she is supposed to return to Hades?  With the help of other Gate Keepers and his little sister, Slade and Halena have to chose – fate or rebellion, as only one will work for them.  The Great One has a plan and Slade as her Mate is part of it, but is Helena strong enough to follow it blindly for the sake of the safety of humanity?

WOW – let me start by saying this book was great!  I had a hard time putting it down – there was action, romance, betrayal, and much more written through the pages of this book.  I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect of the context – how The Great One created the Gate Keepers, they dispatch the demons and keep the balance, etc.  And I don’t think there is a red blooded woman alive that wouldn’t want Slade fighting on their side!  He’s loyal (well, he ends up that way at least), loving toward his family, and H-O-T!  This was a very enjoyable read – looking forward to more from Ms. Monroe!
