Review: Kiss of the Night (Dark-Hunters #4)

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Goodreads Rating: 4.24
Pages: 368
 What do you get when you have an immortal Viking warrior no one can remember five minutes after he leaves their presence, and a demon on the run for her life who is being pursued by one seriously pissed-off demigod?

That would be my life.

It started out simple enough. One night I went to save a woman in trouble. The next thing I knew, the doorway to hell had opened and out stepped Daimons- soul-sucking vampires the likes of which I’d never seen before. Led by the son of Apollo, they are out to end the curse that has banished them all to darkness. The only problem with that is they have to kill Cassandra Peters to do it and if she dies, so dies the sun, the earth and all who dwell here. Life’s just a bowl full of cherries, ain’t it?

Brought together by fate, it’s now my job to protect a daughter of the very race I have been hunting for centuries. Neither of us dares to trust the other. But if we don’t find a way to overcome our differences and to bridge thousands of years of animosity, we won’t die alone. We’ll take the entire world with us.

Review: Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunters #3)

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Goodreads Rating: 4.39
Pages: 343

Zarek's Point of View:

Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.

Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.

Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.

Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.

Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?

BLOG TOUR: Traitor Angels

Author: Anne Blankman
Goodreads Rating: 3.62
Pages: 400
Format: E-ARC from Publisher for Blog Tour

Six years have passed since England’s King Charles II returned from exile to reclaim the throne, ushering in a new era of stability for his subjects.

Except for Elizabeth Milton. The daughter of notorious poet John Milton, Elizabeth has never known her place in this shifting world—except by her father’s side. By day she helps transcribe his latest masterpiece, the epic poem Paradise Lost, and by night she learns languages and sword fighting. Although she does not dare object, she suspects that he’s training her for a mission whose purpose she cannot fathom.

Until one night the reason becomes clear: the king’s man arrive at her family’s country home to arrest her father. Determined to save him, Elizabeth follows his one cryptic clue and journeys to Oxford, accompanied by her father’s mysterious young houseguest, Antonio Vivani, a darkly handsome Italian scientist who surprises her at every turn. Funny, brilliant, and passionate, Antonio seems just as determined to protect her father as she is—but can she trust him with her heart?

When the two discover that Milton has planted an explosive secret in the half-finished Paradise Lost—a secret the king and his aristocratic supporters are desperate to conceal—Elizabeth is faced with a devastating choice: cling to the shelter of her old life or risk cracking the code, unleashing a secret that could save her father…and tear apart the very fabric of society.

Good Night Owl Blog Tour: Review!

Title: Good Night Owl
Author: Greg Pizzoli
Format: Finished Copy
GoodReads Rating: 4.0 Stars

Hi all! 

One thing to know about me: I adore owls. I think I buy every owl accessory I come across. And I have an absolute weakness for Owl books and owl kids books?

Make me all: 

So a book called GOOD NIGHT OWL by Greg Pizzoli? Makes me super happy. 

Pint sized co-worker** and I (who wouldn't sit still long enough to let me take her picture with the book) read this before the start of a work day recently. 

There's nothing more adorable than reading a book you love with a kid as cute as Pint sized Co-worker. 

This book is a perfect addition to any favorite auntie or uncle's book collection, any parent or any growing picture book lover's collection (like mine). 

Pint-Sized Co-worker loves when the owl gets mad. 

She also loved pointing out the source of the squeeks throughout the book. 

I personally loved the record collection (drawn in loving detail by author, Greg Pizoli) on pages 9 and 10. 

I also loved the feel of this book--the steady heavy pages, the colorful and bright images (I freaking love that the owl is blue and has a heart shaped face and has a green book). 

This was such a fun book to share and one that I think everyone should have on their shelf regardless of if their reading with pint-sized adorable monkeys or just to themselves. 

Be sure to buy this one up and enjoy it as much as we did. And don't forget to see what my other blog tour friends have said, listed below!

**Pint-sized co-worker is my boss' daughter and she's four and adorable. 

Thanks to Hannah and Disney Hyperion for allowing me to participate on this great blog tour and read this great book!
