REVIEW: Descent by Stacey Rourke



Descent
The Gryphon Series Book 5
Stacey Rourke




It's been two years since the lion roared ...
the eagle flew ...
and the fated Celtic warrior embraced her destiny. 
Now, with an unknown darkness swirling and the body count rising, Gainesboro needs a hero more than ever. A new battle is brewing. Who will answer the call to war? 
The time has come.
The stage is set. 
And, the Garretts are back in a brand new novella!






WOW....I was completely shocked by the outcome of this book, which of course, has left me dangling with another cliffhanger. I say this all in a good way though. The author has once again sucked me into this remarkable world of adventure that she has created and left me craving more, and of course leaving me open to questions. This author has a knack for keeping us in suspense until next book comes out and makes us ask questions of WHY?....The characters in the story are still awesome and the story-line kept me turning each page with the need to know more. Now, I hunger to find out where this author will take us next on this wild adventure. I devoured this book in twelve hours, because it was that good that I just couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this story to others to enjoy as much if not more than I did. Caution: If you have not read the first 4, you maybe lost.

REVIEW: Children of Hellions by Mia Michele



Children of Hellions
Hosts and Hellions Book 1
Mia Michele




Ela, a bookstore owner who has been raising her autistic brother since their parents abandoned them nearly fourteen years ago, finds herself embroiled with Lucian, an upper level demon who has, after millennia, finally had a crisis of conscience. When Lucian realizes that Ela is the answer to saving a small Canadian town from a war between demons, he creates a plan that will utilize a demon, a mortal, and even heavenly hosts in order to save humanity. But will it be enough? And is Lucian fighting for Ela, or is Ela just the means to secure his own demonic power?






This book was fascinating and one I have never read before. It had a very unique tale to it with some interesting twists and turns. It was well written, and I had a hard time putting the book down once I started it. The characters were amazing and I loved how the author threw in about Autism into the story. It was an ingenious way of keeping my attention from beginning to end. It's a refreshing read on a Paranormal story with a slight twist. I am slightly disappointed by the ending, because I am not much on hang you high cliffhangers, but the author has piqued my interest to read the next book. I highly recommend this awesome read to all Paranormal lovers.
