Review: Demons Forever by Sarra Cannon

Wow! Alrighty, I first want to start off that the book was supposed to be out early, but Sarra Cannon new it wasnt just ready yet. I have no clue how it was written before she changed and revised but WOW, so glad the months i waited for the final book was WORTH IT. Please, im telling you now, go buy it! I wish the series was on paperback so i can buy them! I am so lucky to have won an ecopy for free thanks to one of her giveaways! Sarra Cannon has such a way with words, describing everything so beautifully, i just want her series to become a tv show or a movie! she deserves it.

Im just blown away how everything was put together so nicely. Nothing seemed out of place. I couldnt help but smile, laugh at what Mrs. Shadowford became because i just thought it was funny somehow, cry towards the end when someone special to Harper passed away, and the ending, THE ENDING, was absolutely just heart warming. I love Jackson and Harper forever<3. I want to say i loved Tuli, Princes Harpers's server, she is too cute and i wish i could know what happened to her after Harper left to go back to Peachville. I was shocked to find out the true nature of Priestess Winter's true identity. All the questions on how the demons and witches came together, what happened to certain people, what happened between her mom and dad, and then the revealing of her half sister, were answered and i was so glad that all the missing pieces, as well as shocking secrets came together. I feel like the series can go on forever, now just from different characters! But im so glad, i dont know if this is a SPOILER alert, but I'll just say someone from the book will have their own story now that Harpers has ended.! I cant wait for that. I hope the story goes on how what happens to other demons gates and who is the High Priestess!!

Im going to list all my all time favorite quotes from the book so if you dont want to read them, in case you think it will ruin anything, GO BUY THE BOOK NOW! and if you havent read any fo the other ones in this series, DO IT NOW! You wont regret it :)
"You're my life now, Harper. We're in this together until the end, for better or for worse."-jackson

"I looked down at the mixture of humans, demons, and hybrids, hope radiating in their eyes. They believed in me. They really thought i was capable of doing something extraordinary." -Harper

"I stepped back and took in my reflection. THis may not have been the person, or demon, I ever expected to be, but this was me. I was a princess."-Harper

"Someday, far in the future, after your father has passed on to the Afterworld, we'll have a child of our own. A son." -Jackson

"This is for every family you've destroyed, every child whose parent you stole. Every dream you crushed beneath the boot of your greed." -Harper

Review: Runaway by Alycia Linwood

Alrighty, so Runaway by Alycia Linwood is the second book in the Element Preservers series. I have read the first one and i really liked it, but unfortunately the second one, i just was not feeling it. So with me not feeling it, i stopped reading it for awhile and read 9 books before tonight i decided to finish the book. And i am oh so glad i finally finished it.

Ria's two friends, Paula, and Michael, who is her ex boyfriend, go to Ria's fathers work place and try to get down to the business on the magic disease carriers. While Paula and Michael try to find stuff out through books, Ria gets down to the dirty and infilitrates herself with a job given to her from her dad. Which is to get out anything and everything from Adrian, her lover, and who is a magic disease carrier stuck in a cell in one of the buildings. Let me say that Ria is also a magic disease carrier but her father nor mother know about it, because if they did, they most likely would kill her. Ria has an older brother who was sent away and tortured for his disease by his own father, and thus, is secretly hidden, trying to find a way to take down his fathers association.

So while Ria, Paula, and Michael are staying near the heart of the secret society, as i like to call it, they figure out a plan to get Adrian out, which takes up the majority of the story. Then they go to a safe house for a short while and then everyone except Ria leave to go be with her brother and his group to find out more details on what is happening with magic disease carriers.

Although i was not a huge fan of this book as i was to the first one, i do have to say i like the story line. It is something new and refreshing since i cant recall reading anything like it before. The only reason why i wasnt not a major fan was because of Ria, the main character, she did make me aggravated. I felt like she is not paying much attention to everything that is happening besides getting Adrian, saving Adrian, being with Adrian. I felt bad for her friends, but especially Michael because he loved Ria, and she chose to cheat on him with Adrian, multiple times! And i feel like she "tries" to care, but overall really doesnt, and Michael still sticks around! I really hope the next book is better, and more action/secrets revealed. I would be more detailed and such with this review but given that its taken me weeks to finish it, a lot of the things i wanted to say from a moment in a book was forgotten, maybe i will come back to this review and sort it out, but until then...!

Keep On Reading!,


Review: Nightmare by Chelsea M. Cameron

I'd like to start off this post about how it feels like its been forever since a post, but not really, and the fact that i took off time from reading to relax and be with my family. On another note, i have started the Jenny Craig diet, food=expensive, but hopefully it will work out and i will update my progress with it!

Now, for the good stuff, my review on the second book from the Noctalis Chronicles by Chelsea M. Cameron!

Ava did get a little on my nerves on this book. She is too wrapped up with Peter that, yet again, i feel like shes neglecting her friends and especially her mom. Even she said so herself in the book. Although i do understand her need to find a way to be with Peter because once her moms gone, she needs someone to help her through it, and that person for her is Peter. I do like how Peter is becoming less "still" and more human, the way he talks is still cute and weird haha. There is not a lot about Jamie here, but i do like from what was said that home life seems to be a bit better. Tex is still my favorite because of her personality. And i really want something to happen between her and Viktor, which i believe will be good for Ava to have her bestfriend with her, and understand what is going on in her life, paranormal wise.

At one point in the book, i believe Ava's mom called Peter an angel, and then Ava remembers her mom saying something about Angels, afterlife, etc. I cant recall the exact phrase in what was said but what it did make me think of is that maybe Ava's mom thinks Peter is here for her, to take her away when she passes and to help her daugther with the process? That was just my fleeting thought when that moment came.

I can tell that Ava's father is slightly trying, in the sense that he is calling her a nickname he hasnt called her in years, but he still needs improvement.

I was absolutely shocked to find out that Ivan, Peter, and Viktor have another "Brother", and the fact that someone dies in the end, but im still hoping it was just an act because this so person grew on me at the very end! Also, the very end shocked me, it makes me want to buy and read the next book but alas, i have two other books barely read in my nook that i must finish before buying a new one!

To me, the ending was the best part, everything felt kinda slow until that point and i hope that the next book lives up to how the ending was in this one! That is all for now :)

Keep On Reading!,
