My rating: 3 of 5 stars

** I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal) **

Rate: 3.5 stars

This should have been a 4 or 4.5 stars for me because of the amazing plot; however, the erotic scenes have been over the top. Books with exquisite lovemaking really entices me, as long as the real plot isn’t being overshadowed. If I’m not mistaken, Kairos has more that 4 chapters of non-stop lovemaking and to think both characters barely knew each other while they’re at it. Fortunately, the real plot is really interesting, enough to keep me hooked until the end (I just scan through the sex scenes).

I like how chapter 9 & 10 rolls out. The torture scenes are very realistic, which kept me on edge until the end. I would love to learn more of the real story behind Sulwen’s bloodline, the Barrier, and their enemies. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series and hoping for more scenes about Kairos.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)**

The first two to three chapters started out dull for me. This is where you’ll notice that it the book clearly needs editing. I had to skim through these pages just to get to the real story. The “Fates” concept is very interesting and I just wish the author elaborate on this. The story was more on the Mackenzie’s feelings towards Gabriel and vice versa, which only dampens the good story behind being a daughter of Fate. Overall, I rated it 3 stars because of the great concept conceptualized by a new author.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal).

I really wanted to love this book, however, I can’t ignore the fact that it looks rushed and the story line chaotic. The plot would have been great because of the multiple characters and their different abilities, but when you’re at the peak of anticipation on what’s coming, the characters end up dead. I just don’t get the logic of having multiple characters in the first few chapters and then let them die without any explanation. Well, maybe this will be explained in the next book. I just don’t like the idea of having the first book in a seriesĀ full of cliffhangers, which only leave the readers confused. The author may have assumed that this will leave the readers wanting more. It really does spike your interest on what will happen in the next book and I hope it will turn out better than this one.

My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals # 1) by Jen Printy

My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals, #1)My Soul Immortal by Jen Printy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Honestly, the book start off flat. The first part of the book revolves around the life of Jack and his immortality. I almost gave up and I’m glad I didn’t. When Leah’s character entered the scene, everything that is questionable in Jack’s character began to have meaning. Their history, love story and tragic ending. The author really did a great job in incorporating death and the Council in Jack’s and Leah’s life. I can’t even put the book down until I reached the end of the story. The plot is amazing expect for the dreary start. There are times that I hate Leah’s character, because she’s portrayed like a whiny teenager. But overall, it is definitely one of the best paranormal book I’ve read so far, which doesn’t involve vampires, wolves, nor fairies. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series.

I highly recommend this to lovers of historical romance/paranormal. This is definitely one of the books you’ll never forget.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Stars: 3.5

First off, this novel is longer than I expected. In paperback, it may be 322 pages, but for ebook it is actually 766 pages. I’ll start off with the story. It is indeed one of kind, as it revolves around Amanda’s ghost (w/c is a 3-month old baby) and her ability to control the weather through her painted room.

The twists and turns in the story was developed when I’m actually in the last quarter of the book and it will really keep you on your toes. The first half of the book consists of every character’s life story, particularly Katie and Bert. This I think makes this novel longer than necessary. I also skipped some parts pertaining to meteorology since I think it’s very technical, especially for a reader who’s not into it.

I would recommend this to everyone who loves paranormal with the twist of crime and suspense. This may be a long read, but the plot and the climax are worth it.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is very different than most paranormal books I’ve read. The synopsis is very vague, which only makes it more interesting since you really have no idea on what to expect. The author is very imaginative and you can really see it on every page. Everything is intricately described making it realistic enough for you to believe that it is indeed all true.

I just don’t like Elizabeth’s character which I think is underdeveloped. It looks like she was just inserted in the story so that the protagonist will have a love interest. The “fall in love” part is also unbelievable. It happens so fast that you would think it was done just to finish the story ASAP. Despite this, I would still recommend it to mystery/thriller/paranormal fans who wants a different/unique concept.

Alex's Destiny (Defender's Blood, #1)Alex’s Destiny by A.K. Michaels

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Rate: 4.5 stars

I wouldn’t be surprised if this will become a bestseller. The author sure knows how to incorporate her characters in an intricate plot that involves almost all creatures of paranormal. This is like a mashup of Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, which makes it more interesting for adult fans of Paranormal. The sensual and exotic parts are definitely the thing that’s missing with the Twilight series. The book has so many characters and at first I almost got lost in knowing who’s who but as I read on, I begin to accept the fact that everyone has his/her own part to play and they are essential to make the story as good as it is. Personally, it would have been great if Alex has her own powers (not just special blood, which is kinda bland).

The reason I’ve given this 4.5 stars is that there are some annoying parts that I can’t help but notice. One of this is when the portal is closed, the story begins to progress rapidly, and I mean RAPIDLY. I can’t help but feel it was written that way just to finish the book. Another is there are some unnecessary scenes, which I think the book will progress nicely with or without it. (Ex. Scene with the pilot)

Overall, the plot is definitely something and it really makes up for the bad. I would definitely watch out for the rest of this series and I would highly recommend this to adult paranormal fans.
