    "Good Read for Epic Fantasy Fans"
    Overall

    I would recommend this book to epic fantasy fans. It has a solid story line and a fresh vantagepoint that kept me listening without being so deep that I wanted to re-wind. Reader was a definite plus to the experience and she made it easy to keep track of characters.

    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

    If you could sum up Magic Bites in three words, what would they be?

    Funny Witty Engaging


    What other book might you compare Magic Bites to and why?

    Strangely enough this book (series) reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. There is a strong cast of characters with strengths and weaknesses and personalities that have you connecting with them right away.


    Any additional comments?

    It may take a chapter or three to get used to such a new and different paranormal world, the authors have their own twist on Shifters and Vampires. Completely worth the read! (and for those of you wondering.... Yes to romance but it's not the center of the plot and I'd describe it as adult but rated PG).

    Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy. When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade - he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost.

    What did you love best about Lover Reborn?

    The new characters that have been introduced in the last book or two flow so well with our favorite existing characters that it doesn't feel like a side story tacked on to extend the series. I can't wait to find out


    What other book might you compare Lover Reborn to and why?

    It got me as hooked as the beginning of the series. If I could give it 10 stars I would!

    (Comparable to Ward ... hmmm ... no one really. But since I love it when people recommend other series ... Nalini Singh - Psy-Changeling Series. No vampires, but she also does a really great story line, the world is part fantasy/part world you know with great characters, and still gets you going with some hot romance!)


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Blay, Quinn, Layla, Saxton storyline. But after the last book, I was about to give up.... now I am pulled back in again - hook, line and sinker ... I can't wait to hear what happens next!!

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    If you like the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series and are wondering if you will like this one too.... Yes! The series can be stand alone but if you've read BDB you will be way ahead, as the stories run parallel and have some minor interwoven characters. Though I can't say this series has the same erotic pull of BDB quite yet - it's still well worth the credit.
