Every hundred years, tradition dictates that all eligible females in Sweetwater assemble for the choosing ceremony. Two vampire kings have separate territories within the surrounding countryside. Both are eager to pick their future brides. What a waste of her freaking time. Tanya is among the many women at the choosing ceremony. As far as she's concerned it's an outdated, sexist event and if it wasn't mandatory she so wouldn't be here. It's not important that the two males are ridiculously rich and handsome.

Simon Watson, a young librarian on the verge of losing his job, lives alone on the Long Island Sound in his family home - a house, perched on the edge of a bluff, that is slowly crumbling toward the sea. His parents are long dead, his mother having drowned in the water his house overlooks. His younger sister, Enola, works for a traveling carnival reading tarot cards and seldom calls.

Seventeen-year-old Aspen is a skydiving, rock climbing adrenaline junkie. All her life she's been fascinated by the dragons who roam near her home in Yellowstone Park. Yes, dragons. Though no human has ever gotten close enough to touch one. Except Aspen. While most people avoid the national parks because of the resident dragons, Aspen spends most of her free time in search of the feared and misunderstood creatures. For her, studying the dragons is a way to escape a painful past and avoid getting too close to anyone.

The stories originality and storyline was a five star but the plot and executions of characters realizations of situations were weak or the timing was off.

A first-person account of Jim Tucker's experiences with a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives, Return to Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family's story and describing his investigation. His goal is to determine what happened-what the child has said, how the parents have reacted, whether the child's statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means.

This book was good but left more questions. The author was focusing more on the science and explanation of science concerning reincarnation; that was fine but I would have enjoyed hearing theoretical thoughts or what the cases had to say they did while waiting or how they came to be reincarnated.

The first book left me intrigued enough... but the 2nd story was more of teenage lovers angst a lot of emotional back and forth which could have been good but carried on to much for me. If you liked the back and forth lovers angst in the 50 shades of gray you will like this. (To clarify..it is not like 50 shades of gray, just the emotional wishy wash) however the intrigue for me is the whole concept of the Shadow Hunter and what is Tessa Gray...maybe she is like Sookie stack house in Charlain Harris books!
