“Black Widow” Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
It has been quite some time since  Gin has come across a worthy adversary and in this twelve installment of the Elemental Assassin Series she sure does find one good match. We finally are introduced to the mysterious M. M. Monroe. Does her last name sound familiar? If you have been a fan of the series from the very beginning then of course it does. M.M. Monroe  actually stands for Madeline M. Monroe – the one and only heir …

Silver Shadows Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
What an amazing follow-up to “The Fiery Heart”! It was everything that I expected it to be and so much more!
If you’ve read the previous book  you know how Sidney ended up in the predicament that she is currently in.  She is imprisoned by the Alchemists and now going under extensive re-education. To them she has committed the ultimate crime – befriending and of course becoming romantically involved with Adrian who is Moroi. Her imprisonment shouldn’t be an issue …

Unhidden Cover Reveal

Excerpt:
Claws, teeth, and a slavering black tongue rose over me as I lay prone on the floor. It could have easily ripped my throat out or killed me in a dozen hideous ways. It seemed to realize this, too. Its jaw cracked and popped, unhinging so wide it could make a meal of my head in one bite. Hot, putrid saliva dripped onto my face, leaking into my open wound and searing it like acid. …

Shadowbound Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:

This story revolves around the Morningstar’s crusade to demolish the Shadow World. To fuel their army, Primes and Consorts are being annihilated around the world. Despite the unparalleled strength and power of the newly formed circle of eight (David/ Miranda, Deven/ Jonathan, Jacob/ Cora, Olivia/___ ) they aren’t  immune to the destruction around them. If anything, the death of the other primes are just a means to an end with the circle being the primary objective.

Defeating the Morningstar …

The Fiery Heart Book Review

My Thoughts:
As I mentioned in my previous review, Sydney is stepping out of the box and is broadening her horizons in regards to her skills. While the alchemists traditions are important to her she realizes that some of them are flawed. She covertly continues to go out of her way to make a difference in the human, witch and even the vampire world – something that would never be accepted by her kind.
Adrian on the other …

Heart of Venom Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
You would think that after “The Spider” finally ends Mab Monroe in Spider’s Revenge ( Book 5) that this series would lose its steam but Jennifer Estep is still able to hold my attention.
Now a retired assassin, Gin just wants her life to settle down and run her business the Pork Pit but this is just not happening for her. She is still constantly being hounded by the lowlifes of Ashland. Every one of …

Deadly Sting Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
Gin never did want to go to this gala in the first place. She would have been content at home, curled up reading a good book and of course sulk, still heartbroken about Owen and his choices. But Finn convinced her that she needed to go out. He forced her to go shopping to find the perfect outfit for this shindig but it wasn’t just a dress that she got in this excursion. She …

Archangel’s Legion Advance Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:

As the Archangels age they’re powers continue to evolve and become  even  stronger.   Some archangels  are almost  pushed to the brink of  insanity because of this and   develop this godlike complex where they think they could become an exclusive powerhouse that can rule the entire world.
Raphael has that same potential but because of Elena, she is able to be do what Michaela wasn’t able to do for Uram or Caliane for Nadiel …

Of Shadow Born Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
 
The story continues immediately after book 3 (Shadow’s Fall) which was a major cliff hanger. And believe me, I was quite upset about what happened in the end of that one for weeks. I can still remember the screaming that occurred underneath my pillow while the husband stared at me like I had lost it. If you’ve read Shadow’s Fall you totally would understand. Thinking about it right now that’s why the reviews weren’t …

The Indigo Spell Book Review

Liezel’s Thoughts:
“In that moment, it seemed that as long as Adrian and I were together, there was no challenge too great for us.”
So far I think this one was the best in the series.We learn that the Alchemist and the Warriors of Light are working together but it hasn’t been mentioned to what capacity. Obviously the leaders of the Alchemist have been keeping it under wraps which makes Sidney question her alliance. She has given …
