Author: James Rollins

Rollins has created a tight unit with Tucker and Kane, almost joined at the hip.  Tucker Wayne could be the soldier you know that came back from action. The characters are strong and engaging.  The situations they get into are tight  with near escapes.  I enjoyed the action but miss some of the historical and scientific bent that Rollins is noted for in his Sigma Force series.    A story that has you wondering could this be true today.

I look forward to where Rollins will be taking this series.

Author: Daniel Silva

This is an easy read fictional novel about Israeli spymaster Gabriel Allon whose regular job is an art restorer. While working for the Vatican, restoring a valuable painting he is called upon by his mentor to do a favor and meet someone that will only meet with him about secret information. When the meet goes badly with a murder on vatican property it puts Allon in a tenuous state. It also leads him across the European continent to solve the dead mans secrets that directly affect the Jewish state and Jews in general. While trying to solve the puzzle an highly elite English assassin is also after him and the world reknowned violinist that Gabriel intends to protect. As with most of the Silva books I have read this is filled with adventure, hair raising episodes and action in most of the pages. This is not a book that you can put down very easily.

Author: J.R. Ward

How can I put into words an entire world that I delve into every time I open up Ward's books. I always feel tied to her characters and hate when the story ends, but it encourages me to move on to the next one, and the next one, and the next one, and the....

I couldn't pull away from this dark and sexy book, as usual when it comes to Ward and her prowess. And once again I was immediately sucked into the warring vampires and the lessening society. But as her books go on, so does her beautiful characters, and her spiraling plot.

Once again I was totally transfixed on every page of this next sizzling novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I was also blown away by the shocking plot twist Ward dropped like a bomb in this one. She has totally changed my expactations of action AND romance.

Quite possibly my favorite book in this series. Ward takes her characters far beyond what I thought they could handle and we both returned out of breath and shocked at the outcome. I can NOT wait for the next one!

There is no true way  that I can describe the beautiful world that Ward has created. Her characters are all so well thought out and no matter what happens in the book, she never fails to remind me that her will (and writing technique) is supreme!

Love It!

Title: Dark Lover
Author: J.R. Ward

Dark Lover is a sensuous and revealing book that had me hanging onto each word. I was totally obsorbed into Ward's world of vampires and lessers, and I don't think I ever want to leave.

Title: Sin Undone
Author: Larissa Ione

Larissa Ione is by far one of my favorite authors and this final installment has come too soon. In the final fight for what is right and what is evil, I feel as if my mind has been blown into dust by the sheer amount of awesome that Ione has unleased in this tale. Her characters, now fully aware and totally competent, have surpassed everything I could have thought of them and I have a feeling that there's more to come.

Ione has outdone herself in this amazing tale. The fourth book of her Demonica series is nearly impossible to set down, and the back story is so intense that I almost cried when it was over. So much to obsorb, such amazing characters, and somehow the plot keeps thickening.
