Today I am reviewing Servant by J. S. Bailey.
Blurb: Bobby Roland knows things he shouldn’t.
Plagued with premonitions of disaster, he fights to save others’ lives. What Bobby doesn’t foresee is that rescuing a stranger from death will place him in the line of fire.
He discovers a world of evil spirits and tormented souls when he becomes entangled in a madman’s plot to kill the Servant, a man chosen by God to exorcise demons from the possessed. When Bobby falls under spiritual attack following the encounter, he must choose between saving others and saving himself.
My Review: This book is great. The authors style reminds me a great deal of Dean Koontz. Love the supernatural. It is paced well and the writing is great. I highly recommend this book. Can’t wait to read more of what happens to the main character in the next book. I give this book 5 stars.

Today I am reviewing The Breakers Ultimatum by Conner Kressley.
Blurb: Separated from the love of her life, Cresta is determined to get him back before making a break from the dreaded Hourglass. The trouble is, she’s the only one who doesn’t think it’s a suicide mission. Throw in the fact that her powers are spiraling out of control and Royce seems to be the only one who can help, and things seem hopeless. But when Casper reveals a startling connection to a previously unknown piece of the prophecy, it sets Cresta on a path that will take her further away from Owen than she ever wanted to be. Can she find a way to stop the madness before the world itself crumbles and, even if she does, will she find that fate has pushed her into the arms of Royce?
The Dragon lives…
Meanwhile, deep within the bowels of the Hourglass, Owen Lightfoot sits a prisoner of the Council. His powers are growing too, and the Council is foaming at the mouth to use him as a weapon…against the woman he loves. With the safety of his family hanging in the balance, he is left with no other choice but to play along. But when a strange occurrence throws a whole new light on everything, the lines start to become blurred. Sacrifices will be made, connections will be tested and, by the end, either the Dragon or Owen will be gone forever.
My Review: This is the third book in this series. The action gets ramped up a notch in this book as the Blood Moon and The Dragon both fight their own individual battles and deal with new powers. Loved the further development in this unique story. I was disappointed with one thing though. It ended and now I have to wait for the next book to come out. Can’t be too soon for me. If you are into paranormal stories this is one you should get now. I give this book 5 stars.

Today I am review a new book by Rebecca Hamilton called Come The Dark.
Blurb:TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse.
Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
My Review: This books concept even while dealing with the dark subject of abuse is fascinating. The time travel aspect of it is so original. Loved the trip to the witch hunts of Salem and the magic involved. Definitely a must read for the lovers of the paranormal. I give this book 5 Stars.

Today I am reviewing The Breakers Promise by Conner Kressley.
Blurb: The world is ending, and it’s her fault.
Cresta Karr is the Bloodmoon, the prophesized Breaker whose going to one day bring about the end of the world…not that anyone knows that. She and her boyfriend Owen, the Breaker prophesized who’s predestined to kill her, have done a pretty good job of hiding that fact from the Council of Masons and the world as a whole.
But when a series of events bring both of them into the Hourglass, the Breaker seat of power, their lies (and their lives) begin to unravel. How long can they keep Cresta’s real identity a secret? And what will the Council do when it finds out the truth? And will Cresta and Owen’s relationship survive when her Perfect is revealed to be someone very different than the boy she loves?
The past will yield its secret, the future will come calling, and Fate’s noose will grow ever tighter in the second part of the epic four part Fixed Points series! Don’t miss it.
My Review: This is the second in the Breakers series. It did not disappoint. If you liked the first you will love this one. Loved the background you get in this and the glimpse into the breaker world. A lot of questions get answered but still leaves plenty of room for the adventure to continue in the next book which I can’t wait to read. I give this 5 stars.

Today I am reviewing The Breakers Code by Conner Kressley.
The Blurb: Where were you when the world ended?
Three weeks shy of her seventeenth birthday, Cresta Karr wakes to find her world is falling apart. The necklace her father left her is mysteriously missing, a black sedan is stalking her and her friends, and her house is minutes away from exploding. To top it off, she finds out that Owen, the enigmatic, if slightly off-kilter guy of her dreams, is both not interested in going out with her and a superspy sent by a clandestine organization to keep tabs on her.
Turns out Cresta is the subject of a 500 year old prophecy, and if Owen and the other “Breakers” can’t find a way to circumvent the future before the sun comes up on her birthday, Cresta is destined to bring about the end of the world — something she’d rather not have on her college applications. That is, of course, if the gun-toting cult members piling onto her front porch don’t get to her first.
The countdown is on. Secrets will be revealed, relationships will be tested, prophecies will be fulfilled, and fate will fight free will in a battle so intense that it won’t end until the world itself does
My Review: Loved this book. The whole idea is so original. The characters are well developed and I could identify with them even though I am much older than the ones portrayed in the book. One of the best young adult paranormal I have read. This would be a hands down five star book if the editing was up to par. As it is I will give it a four star. Normally might be a three except I enjoyed the book so much I could overlook a lot of the errors. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Today I am reviewing Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams
Eighteen-year-old Ashlyn is one interview away from her future when she first sees the demons.
She thinks she’s losing her mind, but the truth is far more frightening: she can see into the Darkworld, the home of spirits- and the darkness is staring back.
Desperate to escape the demons, Ash accepts a place at a university in the small town of Blackstone, in the middle of nowhere – little knowing that it isn’t coincidence that led her there but the pull of the Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping demons from crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.
All-night parties, new friendships and a life without rules or limits are all part of the package of student life – but demons still stalk Ash, and their interest in her has attracted the attention of every sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a group of other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could offer the answers she’s looking for. The demons want something from her, and someone is determined to kill her before she can find out what it is.
In a world where darkness lurks beneath the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be…
My Review: I really enjoyed this young adult paranormal book. Lots of good original ideas. The characters were well developed and there was enough action to keep a reader interested. I was a little disappointed because the end seemed a little rushed but since this is the first in the series I can overlook that. I am interested to follow more of the adventures of Ash as she explores her new world and powers. There was only very minor editing issues that did not detract from the story. I give this book 4 stars.

Today I am reviewing Incantation Paradox by Annamaria Bazzi.
Blurb: Magic is an illusion. It doesn’t really exist. Or does it?
A horrible car accident destroys Dolores Reynard’s life. But instead of waking up in a hospital bed, she awakens in a teenager’s body. Soon, she discovers she is at the heart of the murderous mystery surrounding the death of Mona, the young girl whose body she occupies. Caught between an evil greater than she ever imagined and a wizard who heals her tattered heart, she is forced to play a dangerous game of intrigue in the hopes of finding a way to return to her previous life.
Will magic be her ally, or will it lead to her demise once and for all.
My Review: I received the beta readers copy of this book to review. I really enjoyed the story. It had good creep factor. The whole essence in another body thing was a great take on paranormal. Loved the main character Delores. Hated Eric/Brian but then you are suppose to. The ending was great if a little hurried. Since I had the beta copy I won’t worry about editing issues as I am sure those got worked out before the final product. I recommend this book to the lover of the paranormal. It gets 5 Stars.
