    In 1606, the grand city of Prague hides an ugly secret: the emperor’s bastard son, Don Julius, is afflicted with a madness that pushes the prince to unspeakable depravity. Banished to a remote corner of Bohemia, Don Julius comes under the care of a bloodletter who works to purge the vicious humors coursing through the young royal’s veins. When the prince meets the bloodletter’s daughter Marketa, his madness sparks a frenzied - and dangerous - obsession.

    I just finished the Bloodletter's Daughter and I have to admit I quite enjoyed the historically based story of the mad prince's obsession with a bath maid. I would have enjoyed this book regardless, but it was made all the better because it was based on a true story. I felt a mixture of pity and hate towards the mad bastard prince Don Julius and my heart broke for Marketa, who was the focus of his obsession. Mental illness is never pretty but I can't imagine what it must have been like back in the 1600's without proper understanding and medication. The fear and frustration that must have been felt towards the spoiled, dangerous and crazy prince that was allowed to roam free without any consequences from his father the king.

    Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special.

    I have totally fallen head over heals in love with the Tairen Soul series. What an amazing story full of love and magic. A fantasy like no other that shows the absolute beauty of the Fae and the terrible evil of the mages. What a crazy and thrilling ride these books have taken me on. My heart is going to break when the series ends..........

He defied the nobles of Celieria to claim her, battled demons and Elden mages to wed her. And now he must protect her - and his imperiled kingdom - with magic, steel, and scorching flame. For his soul-kin, the magical tairen, are dying, and only the Fey King's bride can save them...

    The Tairen Soul series continues with multiple twists & turns and surprises at every turn...... I just can't get enough of the amazing adventure I embark on every time I open one of these books. I feel like I am right there in the story with Rain, Ellysetta and the Fae. C.L. Wilson is a magnificent author who creates a magical world full of beauty, mystery and danger. I just can't get enough...... I am dying to see how everything turns out but at the same time I don't want it to end. I mean who wouldn't want to live in a world with drop dead gorgeous fae warriors who treasure, respect and protect their women. Men who are totally dedicated to their true mates and the most important thing is making her happy....... Too bad the only men I ever find like that only exist in books!!!! Lol!!!!!

    He had stepped from the sky to claim her like an enchanted prince from the pages of a fairy tale, but behind the mesmerizing beauty of his violet eyes she saw the driving hunger of the beast and an endless sorrow only she could heal. Only for him would she embrace her frightening magic. Only for him would she find the courage to confront the shadows that haunted her soul. Only with him could she hope to defeat the terrifying evil that had pursued her all her life. No barrier could stand between truemates, not of the body, mind or soul.

    Once he had loved with such passion, his name was legend: Tarien Soul. Now, a thousand years later, a new threat calls him from the Fading Lands, back into the world that had cost him so dearly. Now, an ancient, familiar evil is regaining its strength, and a new voice beckons him - more compelling, more seductive, more maddening than any before.

    What does Erin Moon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Grave Mercy was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! Author Robin LaFevers turned the concept of death into one hell of a story. A wonderful mix of fantasy, gods, assassins, royals and the game of thrones. I was enthralled from the very beginning to the end. The audio version made it all the better. Narrator Erin Moon was fantastic and she brought all the characters to life with a fervor that was unique to each individual. This pair worked great together. I am looking forward to experiencing more of Robin LaFevers and Erin Moon's work. AMAZING!!!!

    That was BLOODYDAMN AWESOME!!! For once the reviews did not exaggerate. This book is a cross of Spartacus meets a even more sick, twisted version of the Hunger Games and I loved every minute...... This one has it all, an unstoppable underdog, wicked villains, love, hilarity and non-stop action. I was either cracking up laughing, flinching at the violence or just straight up pissed off & appalled at the injustice of the Golds. Definitely, the best book I have read this year and I don't see how it will be out done!!!

    Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her husband, Declan, a powerful, seductive man, provides her with new memories, but her dreams contradict his stories, showing her a past life she can't believe possible: memories of war, of a camp where girls are trained to be wives, of love for another man. Something inside her tells her not to speak of this, but she does not know why. She only knows she is at war with herself. Suppressing those dreams during daylight hours, Emma lets Declan mold her into a happily married woman and begins to fall in love with him.

    Okay, that was absolutely fantastic!!!!! I don't know, this one might be one of the best books I have read in awhile. Author M.D. Waters paints a picture that is all at once mysterious, suspenseful and intriguing. The story reflects around Emma who wakes with no memory of her previous life and has to depend on Declan, her husband, who she does not completely trust for answers. And then there is Noah, a man Emma believes she knows as well, but how does he fit into this bizarre picture? Who is actually telling the truth? Archetype is the type of book that will have your mind spinning. I just did not know who to believe or what was actually going on. Every time I thought I had it figured out the author would throw in another piece to the puzzle and completely mess me up again. When I actually found out what was going on I was completely floored!!!!! This is a spectacular novel from a very talented author that will take you on a ride you will not soon forget........ Just a warning Archetype is the first book in a two-part series and the second book Prototype does not come out until July......I am really not feeling the wait!!!!
