    This is not your run of the mill angel story not even a little bit. This one will surprise you and gross you out simultaneously. Virtually no romance so if you are looking for that you might have to wait for the sequel. However, if you are looking for adventure this is your stop. Hang on it's going to be a wild ride.

    It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her 17-year-old sister, Penryn, will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel. Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl. Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival.

    Story

    Hex Hall was a book that at first glance had everything stacked against it. It looks like the same dull story line I have already read and hated a billion times. Yet I still picked it I don't know maybe I am a glutton for punishment. However, this book was by no means bad.

    Sophie is a smart, funny character that you can't help but love. There is a bit of mystery and the book never takes it self too seriously. Too often YA paranormal books are so angst ridden and weird you feel the need to take a shower afterward. Hex Hall is a refreshing reminder that, "it doesn't have to be this way!"

    I have not decided if I will be moving on to the next installment or not but I am glad I got to meet this one. Who am I kidding I read every single Vampire Academy book which means I am in fact a glutton for punishment.

    I recommended Hex Hall to those who love YA paranormal but are sick of the love triangles and super angsty brats that haunt ever single page. You will enjoy it

    P.S The narrator is good too!

    P.S.S I did hear that there is a bit of love triangle in the second installment :/ Proceed at your own risk.

    On her 12th birthday, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. Three bumpy years later, after a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, she's exiled to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters. By the end of her first day, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire on campus.

    But, I find my heart divided.

    In the name of all things Holy I do not even know where to start…

    I was beyond excited to finally have the last installment of this series. I regret to say that for the majority of this book I was greatly dissapointed. It wasn't bad per say but very slow, sad, and extremely dramatic (not the good kind of drama either.) However, I had a feeling that I had to hold on. That, like the characters in this book, the end would justify the pain it took to get there. I was right. I WAS RIGHT!!!!

    Fans of this series I don't think you will be disappointed with the conclusion. Heck you might not be disappointed at all. This book raised so many questions about death, life, and love. Keeping me pondering the three long after the last sentence. This series, I think has much more depth then its sister The Mortal Instruments. At the end Infernal Devices is a triumph and I am ever glad to know it.

    There was no lack of tears on my part so watch out for that one. If you are a cryer you should probably save the end for someplace other then work (my mistake.)

    Oh, and Will you are by far my favorite. Ever.

Shannon's greatest hits:
  • Enchanted

    "Charming... Enchanting"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I bought this because the cover drew me in---but I wasn't immediately hooked into the story. About 25% of the way through---I was engaged. This is an offbeat fairytale. The formula is there---Prince turned frog falls in love with a girl---convinces her to kiss him which turns him back into a Prince. This is why I was bored... but once the kiss came---I was hooked because Alethena Kontis kept me off balance as a reader. As soon as I recognized the fairtale---she switched things up...

    Give this one a chance if you are a fan of a quirky family... I really enjoyed it and was sad to hear it end.

  • Seraphina

    "Completely Inspiring Fantasy"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    My initial reaction to this novel (a week or so after I finished listening to it) is to reflect on my connection with Seraphina. A girl with an amazing talent who actively seeks to hide her talent in order to not draw attention to herself because of a difference that could get her killed. I am surprised that in a world so fantastical it requires a great deal of careful sculpting and building that my first thoughts are of this character. Seraphina's struggle helps ground the world. Seraphina, at the beginning of the novel, has defined and viewed herself based off of an identity that she didn't choose but was born with. She is caught between two races with each not even wanting to acknowledge her existence. She has grown up with shame and without a true connection with anyone just because she is alive. In our world people often treated differently based on factors they were born with --- I'm sure I don't need to tell you--- the reality of these situations just really hit me on an emotional level.

    The world building: the religion, languages, differences between cultures--are very well done. I thought it was beautifully written and well thought out.

    I don't want to comment too much on the romance--but it is a slow build and felt natural. I--I read another review that said she could not remember was Lucian looked like...and neither can I. Their relationship is built on similarities and understanding--and not without it's issues---really refreshing.

    And intrigue--can this fragile balance between the dragons and the humans be sustained? Who is plotting the downfall of the peace and why? Can Seraphina help the Prince with his investigations without giving up her secret?

    If you like fantasy---I can't imagine a reason why you wouldn't enjoy this read.

  • The Selection: The Selection Trilogy, Book 1

    "You might want to wait... if you hate cliffhangers"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I clicked on an ad—that said Hunger Games + Cinderella + The Bachelor = The Selection and totally impulse bought this audio book. I admit it, I was taken by the ad and the cover. Beautiful.

    I don’t want to give away too much, but I found the main character to be charming and endearing in a “no, no… please don’t do that… oh you really did it now” kind of way. I really liked her family… in particular her youngest brother. I also felt like her relationship with her Mom really rang true for me. There were moments that made me cringe thinking about the trouble America got herself into through her impetuous responses. I am completely rooting for her—and have already picked which guy I think would be better for her. But based on how she reacted through out the book, and what my gut thought she should do—she will probably choose the other one. (So yes, triangle)

    Beyond all of the romance stuff (which is front and center of the book)—is what I imagine for the author a slow build. I loved how the knowledge of this society is laid into the story.

    But:
    1)I thought—especially in the very beginning that the narrator sounded almost mechanical---wooden. Maybe this was on purpose?? By the end, I didn’t notice it anymore… in fact I did love the way she did the Prince’s voice---for that she deserves credit. If you are listening--let me to encourage you to push on.

    2)The ending… I have rewound and listened to the last 20 minutes… oh man, seriously painful---and I would say abrupt ending. All I can do is hope it’s not a long time for the next one. But then maybe that’s a good thing…


    Over all I really enjoyed it... but if you are more a fan of Hunger Games than Cinderella or the Bachelor then I’m not sure this is the book for you. Romance is definitely the name of this game.

  • Grave Mercy: His Fair Assassin, Book 1

    "I Heart Death's Handmaiden!"

    Overall

    Story

    I’m going to leave this review short in order to not spoil.

    This book has it all... A 14 year-old girl forced to marry by an abusive father is saved and sent to join assassin nuns who train her in poison, combat, history and “the womanly arts” to serve her father Mortmain the god of death--- while an illegitimate, fiercely loyal brother fights to save his country and his sister who would be ruler of Britain. It’s historical. It’s fantasy. It’s romance. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Ismae and Duval slow boil relationship---and the mystery behind who is betraying them at every turn made the book almost impossible not to listen to. I, like the book nerd I am, did my grocery shopping last night with my headphones on in an attempt to finish the book because I was so hooked.

    This is worth the credit I used for it…and, while I think it could have stood on it’s own quite well, I am so glad that there are more to come!!

  • "An Interesting First Foray Into A U..."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    Some writers drag us along into their writing, wading into a hastily-created and flawed universe of their own making. It can make for tough reading, and ultimately, can turn off many a reader.

    Garth Nix, I'm happy to say, is not such a writer. This effort is a fun read. It is a universe well thought out, with the technologies, religions, politics, hierarchies and subterfuge splashing together to create an enjoyable experience. Detailed without being preachy, challenging without being confusing, it is a great choice for your Audible credit.

    Notice I'm not giving the plot away, nor any spoilers? Here's why: This is a bit of a wild romp that you'll enjoy better by discovery, versus anticipation due to anything I might give away ion this review.

    I WILL say this: If I could compare Nix's writing and style, it reminds me of the recent Dune audiobooks by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Hebert, but more of a tongue in cheek, just a bit. Very cool, believable and leaves you wanting the author to keep writing.

    Now, THAT'S a good audiobook, yes?

    You'd think being a Prince in a vast intergalactic empire would be about as good as it gets, particularly when Princes are faster, smarter, and stronger than normal humans. Not to mention being mostly immortal. But it isn't as great as it sounds. Princes need to be hard to kill - as Khemri learns the minute he becomes one - for they are always in danger. Their greatest threat? Other Princes. Every Prince wants to become Emperor, and the surest way to do so is to kill, dishonor, or sideline any potential competitor.

    Kel has finally achieved her lifelong dream of being a knight. But it's not turning out as she imagined at all. She is torn between a duty she has sworn to uphold and a quest that she feels could turn the tide of war. Unrelentingly realistic in its depiction of the horrors of war, Pierce provides exquisite details of the weaponry, topography, and culture of her world, and her control of a voluminous cast of characters is masterful.

    Alexandria isn’t sure she’s going to make it to her 18th birthday - to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she’s a goner...and so is Aiden. If that’s not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training" - which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time - she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
