Earth is at war. Portals are opening across the planet and bringing creatures known as Outsiders. Their only desire is to eat, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. The only people who can stop them are the Defenders - led by Gareth Walker - who can open portals of their own to target the Outsiders in minutes. Gareth's only advantage is an ability to see glimpses of his future.

Great read. I enjoyed the action and mystery and Sci fi monsters from another dimension. It ended with a bit of cliffhanger. Hopefully the next installment will be out soon.

Brimstone - a town where supernatural beings live - and where crime is on the increase. Just like her gran, Cassia Winter is a witch. The Winter witches are responsible for investigating crimes in Brimstone. The only problem is, Cassia doesn't know she's a witch yet. When Gran tells Cassia about her true nature, Cassia dismisses it as nonsense. But a terrible incident causes Cassia to change her mind. With her cat, Stanley, at her side, Cassia enters Brimstone and is soon investigating the murder of a werewolf.

My name is Frank Butcher, and when I got out of my truck to deliver the last package of the day, I never expected to get blown up by anti-magic zealots. Now, an ancient artifact is the only thing keeping me alive, and to make matters worse, that artifact is what those cultists wanted.

"Love can carry us through all of this. It doesn't age. Its back doesn't go out. It doesn't get arthritis, or need a motor. It doesn't lose its hearing or become forgetful. It is what keeps on when the years get late and our hair is grey. It's what can heal and buoy us through anything. I want to be old with you, yes, but I want to feel young with you forever." I finished reading the words and found myself speechless. I was a single mother, yet this selfless bachelor had come into my life, and he had literally changed everything.

the first. My only problem was I needed a reminder of who was who and how everyone related. I was lost for a little bit till it all started coming back.

They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous monsters fighting to break through.

Destiny doesn't think she's anything special. The daughter of an outcast witch. Her twin, Fate, is her best friend, so that's awesome. They're experts in love potions and selling them to crazy high school kids. So they can buy more shoes. But that all changes when their school is attacked by warlocks - warlocks who want her power for their own. The attack launches her onto the path the stars have chosen for Destiny, Fate, and their long-lost father. Oh, and Quin.

I started this book before bed and found myself staying up listening. I had to tell myself to stop and go to sleep. I really enjoyed it. The narrator was great. There were parts that also made me laugh. It was a great combination of teen angst with paranormal, humor and romance. Hope there will be another.

The overall premise was good. The narrator did a good job, but the plot didn't move fast enough at times. I also felt the female character who is supposed to be an FBI agent lacked confidence and the kick ass attitude I would think an FBI agent would posses even in personal situations.
