Spellbinder is OUT and Giveaway!!

Spellbinder (A Shadow Falls novella) is out today!
By C.C Hunter
YA Paranormal Romance

Author's Summary:
       When magic, romance and family secrets collide, the result is spellbinding!
       Miranda Cane has always felt like a screw up--at least when it comes to her ability to wield magic. Her only sanctuary is Shadow Falls camp, where she's learning to harness her powers as a witch. But thanks to her shapeshifter boyfriend who called it quits and ran off to Paris, both her heart and powers feel broken.
       When she unexpectedly lands a top spot in a spell casting competition in France, she flies out with her best friends Kylie and Della. But her trip takes her straight into the heart of a dangerous supernatural mystery--and a heated romance. What Miranda doesn't expect is for her investigation to unleash shocking revelations...about herself, her family, and her arch enemy. Now Miranda must step up and show everyone that she's a witch to be reckoned with....before it's too late.

Gabrielle's Review:
        C.C Hunter takes another beloved character in Shadow Falls series and made me love her even more. I always wanted to get inside Miranda Cane's head, to feel her love for Perry, and it was AMAZING. Miranda starts off broken hearted, and kind of seemed useless (which was my only complaint) but then she stepped up to the plate, and did her best in the first competition which would bring her to Paris. She overcame her arch nemesis pranking her, and when someone attacks, Miranda's a bada** and saves the day. She has always had a hard time with spells because of her dyslexia, a real problem that real girls handle in real life. C.C brings in such an issue and handles it well.
        Once winning the competition, she, Kylie, and Della, head to Paris for the big competition to become High Priestess. Miranda finds out that both her parents had been lying to her her entire life but even though she's hurt, she handles it maturely. Miranda's heart is put into a blender because of Perry and her parents but she finds comfort in the last person she expected and together they are stronger.
        I felt Miranda's heartache, her love, and her determination as if it was my own. C.C Hunter is great at pulling at my heartstrings and putting a smile on my face. If C.C Hunter writes a book, I will always read it. She is too talented to pass up!

        One of my favorite quotes is " 'This, what?' she asked. 'This... him.' Perry waved toward the hall where Shawn had disappeared. 'Mr. I'm-too-sexy-for-my-shirt guy!'"

Order it today!

Cover Reveal For Reign of Shadows

Reign of Shadows cover reveal
By Sophie Jordan

A world of darkness. A love that shines...
Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness, and in the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, the kingdom’s lost princess, has been locked away in a tower in the cursed Black Woods ever since. Luna’s survival depends entirely on the world believing she is dead.
But that doesn’t stop Luna from longing for a life beyond the stifling tower walls. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer who has braved the Black Woods in search of a land where the sun still shines, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk.
When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is far more treacherous than Luna ever realized. Hideous, flesh-hungry creatures lurk behind every corner and each stranger they encounter has frightening ulterior motives.
With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Onyx (Lux #2)

Onyx (Lux #2)
YA Sci-fi/Paranormal
By Jennifer L. Armentrout

                                            Reading format: Paperback
                                              366 pages

Goodreads Summary:
           Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
           Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.             
           Something worse than the Arum has come to town…
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
           But then everything changes… I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me? No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

Taylor’s Review:
            This book was more action packed then the first. They fight more, Kat gets powers, Daemon is all in her face with his perfect self and the relationships, oh, the relationships.
            You can tell the author is much more comfortable with her writing; she’s bolder with the plot and introduces more characters. She brings them to life with heart ache and trials that they have to face together. This book had way more angst then the first and some of it was funny and some of it was well written but poorly timed.
            The book picked up pace a lot in a good way. We had multiple enemies to worry about, some we thought were friends, and some we thought were just suspicious. Kat was constantly fighting to prove herself while Daemon was constantly struggling with his own inner demons and need to protect his sister Dee and his love interest Kat.
            One thing I didn’t like was how the action packed scenes sometimes seemed to end abruptly or left out details. I thought perhaps things seemed a bit disjointed and could have had more details added. I found myself rereading things to see if I missed something because I was having difficulty picturing important things. Unfortunately, it was just that things had been left out or poorly written.

Yet again, I would give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars. But I look forward to finishing the series.
