#Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter by Katie MacAlister–Review 5 stars-#NetGalley

Memoirs of a dragon hunter850 :.jpg.jpgVery Funny New Release by Katie MacAlister Coming 8/28/18

 

Veronica James, had no idea that her dying, half-sister Helen, was anything, but human, until she turned her into a dragon hunter. Not only did the flesh-tearing bite send Veronica’s OCD into overdrive, it hurt, a lot. Her half-sister did apologize, but still. 

Although Helen was weak and dying, she was able to pass, onto Veronica, her first mission as a dragon hunter. She was to save a battered woman with two children, from harm. The assignment sounded simple enough, especially, with Veronica’s newly acquired dragon abilities and sword. The problem was, however, that Helen died before telling her who the woman was. In addition, to that important information tidbit, Veronica didn’t have a clue about being a dragon hunter. She also, unfortunately, left her sword in the alleyway where Helen died. When Veronica went to retrieve the forgotten sword, she found another dragon hunter, Ian Iskandar, stealing it. Veronica didn’t know at the time, that the dragon hunter she was fighting, would become the love of her life and mentor.  

Ian Iskander had a mission to accomplish. Unfortunately, it involved Veronica James, the battered woman Veronica was trying to save, and Anzo, the demon lord he was bound to. Ian tried not to fall in love with Veronica, because not only would his crazy complicated life become impossible, it would be dangerous for Veronica.

I thoroughly enjoyed this humorous and engaging book. The characters are colorful and quirky, the dialogue witty, and the crazy situations, very funny. I especially enjoyed the hysterical banter between Veronica, and the dragon hunter, who stole her heart, Ian.  If you enjoy, humorous paranormal romance novels, you’ll love, Memoirs of a Dragon Hunter.

Thank you, Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Bio (from author’s page on Amazon)

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn’t think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than fifty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her dogs and cat, and can often be found lurking around online. You are welcome to visit her at http://www.katiemacalister.com

New Release–The School For Psychics By K.C. Archer Coming 4/3/18!

 

 

Twenty-four-year-old Teddy Cannon is in trouble. She’s petrified of the possible consequences, to her and her family, if she’s unable to satisfy the loan shark’s demand. Teddy shudders at the thought of her innocent, loving parents, being targeted by the mob. So even though Vegas has banned Teddy from their casinos, she feels as if she has no choice, but to go and try to win enough money to pay off her debt. Teddy dons what she feels is a good enough disguise. It’s not.

It is at the casino, where Teddy meets the man who will change her life. After this mysterious stranger, saves Teddy from a couple of mobsters, using only his mind-control ability, Teddy decides to take him up on his offer; to attend the school for psychics. The thing was, though, Teddy didn’t think she had much in the way of psychic power; this man, however, knew differently. Unbeknownst to Teddy, the school she was about to attend, was really a training center for classified government work. The graduates from this school for psychics, become part of a secret task force, to protect America.

I quickly became engrossed in the story and its characters. I found them to be unique, quirky, and fascinating. School For Psychics is a well-written and enjoyable read.

Thank you, Simon & Schuster and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

*The Operator* by Kim Harrison

Kim Harrison’s Newest Release! Check it out.

 

the-operator

The operator is a fast-paced, compelling, thriller.

Peri Reed is a drafter. She has the unique ability to remake history; by turning back time and rewriting it. The problem is, though, that Peri loses memory with each draft. Bill, an evil and manipulating key player from Opti, dangled a syringe in front of Peri and told her that for a favor, he could restore her memories. Of course, Bill has been lying to Peri for years. Still, she was tempted by his offer.

Peri has had relationships with three men in Opti, Allen, Jack, and Silas. She wished that she could remember more, than just vague pieces, of their time together. She does recall, however, that she once loved Jack, until he betrayed her. Now, he sometimes shows up as a hallucination, popping in and out of her life, following her about, and warning her of danger. She doesn’t know who to trust. Peri’s greatest desire is to stop hallucinating, live a normal life with her memories intact, and be free from addiction. The price for pursuing this dream of hers, though, almost costs Peri, her life.

The Operator is an entertaining, fast-paced, action-packed thriller with a complex plot and plenty of twists to keep the reader turning the pages.

I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

*Seer of Souls* by Susan Faw*5-Stars

Seer of Souls is a cleverly crafted fantasy; filled with magic, intrigue, love, and betrayal.

Seer of Souls

Cayden and Avery Tiernan didn’t know that royal blood ran through their veins. The secret of their birth was hidden, even from them. The twins were aware of the Primordial Prophecy but believed it was more of a myth than truth. Cayden and Avery certainly didn’t think that they had anything to do with the well-known Prophecy until two Primordial beings showed up to lead them to their destiny.

Wizard Mordecai Ben-Moses, had been locked in the Castle Cathair’s dungeon for seventeen years. Queen Alcina thought that if she tortured the old wizard long enough, that he would eventually cave, and give her the information she needed to capture Cayden and Avery. She was wrong. Frustrated and determined to please the Goddess of the Underworld, the Queen had evil spirits sent out to locate the twins, bring them back and to kill anything that tried to interfere with her mission.

Susan Faw does an extraordinary job building a fantasy world for the reader. I found the characters memorable, their dialogue realistic and the story plot compelling. Seer of Souls is an entertaining and engrossing read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fantasy tale, well told.

*Jaxson*by Alisa Woods-5-Stars

Jaxson

Jaxson River is a shifter and former navy seal. He is also an Alpha that knows he must step down from his position. His pack deserves a true leader, a mated Alpha, something, he could never be. But, to reveal his shameful secret to the pack when their wolves were being kidnapped, just didn’t seem right. No, he would have to wait to clear his conscience until after he found and destroyed whoever was responsible for stealing their wolves.

Olivia Lilyfield is half-human, half-witch, and holds a dark secret within her. She’s determined to make a difference in the world. She knows that nothing could make up for her horrific mistake, but she was going to try to do so anyway. What Olivia didn’t plan on, though, was falling in love with a wolf, because to wolves, she was the enemy.

This is a well-written story and the first novel in the River Pack Wolves trilogy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading adult wolf-shifter romances.
