A neo-gothic castle complete with hidden passageways would not be complete without ghosts of the easily explained as well as quite unexplained in residence. Aund Dimity returns in her usual form to try and save Lori from the hold of a ghost searching for the love she lost. Each page turner of suspense keeps you guessing at what is around the next corner. Another enjoyable read by Nancy Atherton.

Girl Who Chased the Moon is a beautifully magical world that I was instantly sucked into. Between a girl who has to live down her mother's teenage reputation while trying to find out what secrets her new home hides, and a woman who must confront her past in order to meet her future, this book had me on the edge of each page, excited and hungry to find out what happens next. A little faith, trust, and magicall moon dust (sort of), sprinkled on top of this gorgeous world and you have Sarah Allen's wonderful tale of fate, and the choices we make. A must read for anyone: young, old, or even for bedtime stories!

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.
