The Tribe by Gary Paul Corcoran

The TribeThe Tribe by Gary Paul Corcoran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Tribe” illustrates an unconventional tale of a group of people living together in a community built by Steven Fitzgerald, a wealthy entrepreneur. The author did a great job in incorporating different characters without missing a beat on the story line. You’ll love how Corocoran demonstrates the complexities of each character, how they relate to each other, how they responds to the tribe’s concept and vision, and how they grow and develop throughout the story. Its complexity and being relatable, makes this an unforgettable read. Highly recommended!

Kairos, An Enmortals Series Novel by K.J. Coakley

Kairos, An Enmortals Series NovelKairos, An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley

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.

DNA (The Dark Side, #1)DNA by Cyma Rizwaan Khan

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 series 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.

Last Light Falling (The Covenant #1) by J.E Plemons

Last Light Falling (The Covenant, #1)Last Light Falling by J.E. Plemons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Why would someone like yourself come to my aid? I’m just an old, withering man who has nothing to offer” he says.
“And I’m a broken girl who wants nothing to take. Look into my eyes. What do you see?”

I’ve always been a fan of books threading the dystopian & post-apocalyptic genre, and this book never fails to exceed my expectations. First off, the story line is amazingly unique and hauntingly evocative at the same time. It is truly an epitome of a true page-turner. Every detail is intricately described, that you’ll almost feel you’re one of the characters and everything is happening around you. The action sequences are to die for (literally!). The author really did a great job when it comes to research, because he was able to portray dangerous and yet plausible scenes effectively. The protagonists, Arena & Gabriel Power, despite their unbelievable gifts are amazingly exemplified as humans. You can feel their happiness, pain, fear, anger and rage, which are all basic human emotions. The rest of the characters are well-developed and as you go along you’ll realize that everyone plays an important part in keeping the story intact.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wanted more than just a post-apocalyptic story. This would definitely make you awake for hours not only because of the utterly gripping scenes, but because you wouldn’t dare to put it down once you open its pages.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

This is definitely a fun and exciting read! It may look like more suitable for younger readers, but it appeals to me just right. I love the characters, especially Ira, Brynn and Sebille. There may be some parts that lacks excitement, that I almost want to skip some pages. Also, it would have been much better if there is more character development between Lex and Rosaline. But overall, the plot and characters make up for those parts that is uneventful. I would highly recommend this to everyone who loves fantasy books. This is definitely worth reading!

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.
