Wish List

I've decided to do a post about my most wanted books. I'll probably do this either once a week or biweekly. Well see how it goes.

Product Description
Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives.
When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals—unaware that he belongs to their world.
Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared—even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

Revew: Deadtown by Nancy Holzner

They call it Deadtown: the city’s quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders — but Victory Vaughn, Boston’s only professional demon slayer, isn’t exactly human…

Vicky’s demanding job keeping the city safe from all manner of monsters is one reason her relationship with workaholic lawyer (and werewolf) Alexander Kane is in constant limbo. Throw in a foolhardy zombie apprentice, a mysterious demon-plagued client, and a suspicious research facility that’s taken an unwelcome interest in her family, and Vicky’s love life has as much of a pulse as Deadtown’s citizens.

But now Vicky’s got bigger things to worry about. The Hellion who murdered her father ten years ago has somehow broken through Boston’s magical protections. The Hellion is a ruthless force of destruction with a personal grudge against Vicky, and she’s the only one who can stop the demon before it destroys the city and everyone in it.

I had been looking forward to this series every since I first read the blurb because it sounded very fresh and different and it was. But I think that in case the author had a little much going on and it kind of left me split between the several story lines. there is the story line with the Demon who killed her father,the super secret agency trying study paranormals, and then the zombies trying to achieve equality And then there is the two love interests not too mention her sister and her prejudices against paranormals. Man there was a lot going on in this book. At times it felt like too much but overall it was a solidly enjoyable read. I give this book 3 1/5 stars and I purchased this one for my own reading pleasure. I will also be reading the next one in this series since I won one of Ms. Holzner's contest giving it away. I will have the review up for it as soon as I pull it out of my tbr pile and read it.

Revew: Alpha by Rachel Vincent

Product Description

The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder and treason. Yeah, we've been busy. But now it's time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother's death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It's not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I'm heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever. A showdown I'm not sure I'm ready for.

But life never waits until you're ready

I loved this book and this series. Faythe really grows up a lot in this book. She becomes what her father always wished she'd be and even though things have been tense between her and Marc and Jace they really work together even though Alpha Malone continues being the asshole he always was. This book will make you cry, cuss, and then cheer as Faythe comes into her own.  I was sad that this series was coming to and end but Ms. Vincent ending was all I hoped it would and I am looking forward to see what she comes up with now. I will definitely be keeping my eye out for her books in the future and consider her an autobuy. I give this one a 4 1/2 stars and this was a personal purchase for my own reading pleasure.

Review: Alien Tango by Gini Koch

Product Description

It's been five months since marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt started working with the aliens from Alpha Centauri, and she and Jeff Martini are getting closer. But when an experimental spacecraft is mysteriously returned to the Kennedy Space Center, Kitty and the rest of her team are called in to investigate. Now the team must survive murderous attacks, remove a space entity from a group of astronauts, and avoid an unhinged woman with a serious crush on Kitty's high school boyfriend. And that's all before evil masterminds decide Kitty's extermination is vital.

I loved the first book in this series but this one topped even that one. Kitty and Jeff are a great couple. And even though everything is not all roses and champagne they work through their problems which unfortunately includes almost in laws, bombs, secret government orgs, best friends who secretly love you, and secret human groups against aliens. This book is hopping from word to word. after reading it you feel like you've been on the world's fastest and curviest coaster in existence. I loved it. If you love aliens, geeks, or just action at faster than the speed of light this book is for you.

I give it 4 1/2 stars.  And found this beauty at my local USB and snapped it up pronto.

I want this book bad!!!
