If you like love triangles then you will probably love this book. Unfortunately I hate love triangles. Mainly because it always seems like the person that should have a fighting chance never really got it. This book was certainly among those I could have done without the heartbreak of.

Such a great group of books. At first I just wanted some action to start and felt it was taking too long then when it finally happened I couldn’t wait for more. Each climax had me in the edge of my seat. I’m excited to read more by stormy! The whole magical gang is awesome!

Cass Clereaux is good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third - but not because she wants to be good at hiding. Cass is a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of the dragon's soul. On the surface, the perks are sweet - she has the power to find and steal any type of magical treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals. But it doesn't come without a price - stealing powers requires that she kill, and others would destroy her if they discover what she is.

Linsey truly did an amazing job with this series. I fell in love with Cass and The others. I’m so excited to dive into the other books following Cass’s books. Linsey did Cass justice and I am sure she will do amazingly with the other girls. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to read this series at first but I am so glad I did. This is definitely a much read if you love adventure and magic with plenty of climax’s built in.

Piper thought she could handle the Sahar, the most powerful magical weapon in existence. She thought she could protect her loved ones and stop a war. She thought she could make a difference. She was wrong, and her mistakes were paid for in blood. Leaving her world - and her failures - behind, she retreats to the Underworld with Ash and the other draconians. They forge deep into long abandoned mountains, the first draconians to fly the valleys and passes in centuries - or so they think.

Zoe Lake is heading off to college - and she's excited. It's not a regular college, though. It's a magical college full of vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, sphinxes - and pretty much everything else you can imagine. Despite the monsters, it's often human nature that threatens her life most.

Wasn't sure how much I would like this at first but I have a problem spending a credit on a short book so I said why not since I get 5. Let me just say I'm so glad I did! I absolutely love this series. So much that I want more! Seriously even just a simple novella would be amazing. I can't wait to read more by this author! AH-MAZ-ING!

Boaz, a powerful vampire, may be the only one able to save her, to give her the one thing she's never had--love. But in Eve's world, no one is who they seem and everyone has an agenda. And the more she stays with him, the more difficult it becomes to spot the true devils, especially when she becomes one herself.

The story is awesome. The narrator could use some help. I almost returned the book right away, but am glad I didn't. She's not nails on a chalk board but she is very monotone and boring. I didn't feel like she connected with the book as most of the narrations I listen to do. Hopefully the next books narration is better but seriously I really love this book. Great beginning although just a bit predictable.
