Personal Demon–Kelley Armstrong

Hope Adams is a chaos half-demon.

She loves a good thrill, loves a good fight, and loves it when chaos vibes roll through her whenever hunky suave Karl Marsten, werewolf, is around.

I understand that I can make these book sounds incredibly insane and cheesy, but you don’t have to trust my writing, you have to trust Kelley Armstrongs.

Here is another example of exemplary writing and story telling.

We’ve met Hope before, we know what she’s like, and now we are getting a great adventure involving my favourite Cabal leader, Benecio ‘Kill You With A Thunder Bolt” Cortez, a gang of supernaturals looking to take down the Cabals, and the ever angry: Karl Marsten. With Hope at the forefront and trying to get a hold of her powers as they grow and sometimes debilitate her, we end up with a really fun book.

Great plot, great ending, just great, great, great.

Plus Hope continually puts Karl in his place whenever he gets out of line and I love that she’s always ribbing him.

Constant vigilance.

Broken–Kelley Armstrong

The werewolves are back! The werewolves are back!

I love my wolf pack.

Honestly, I look forward to seeing them throughout the series more than any other characters, but I’m really glad that this series isn’t completely revolving around them. Kelley Armstrong writes in such a way that I’ll always be intrigued by this series. She keeps you on your toes!

“Broken” is about my beloved wolf pack, and things are changing. (Pun not completely intended.)

Remember Xavier? He was from “Stolen”, he was that dingaling teleporter that is really only after things for himself? Couldn’t really care about anyone unless they could do something for him?

Well. He’s back and he’s asking Elena and Clay’s help in stealing the “From Hell” letter that is rumoured to contain Jack the Ripper.

Go figure that they accidentally open a portal and unwittingly let him out.

The real problem with this? There are all sorts of diseases that come from Victorian England and Elena has a little parasite of her own happening.

She’s pregnant. Naturally, Clay is worried as fuck.

Great writing, one of my favourite books as you get to see this couple work together again and do battle, but also that you get to see Elena trying to act in the best interest of her future kids instead of just herself and Clay.

Loved it. Constant vigilance!

Dime Store Magic–Kelley Armstrong

While I love Clayton Danvers (the hunky blond Southern werewolf who dislikes humans) I have a major crush on Lucas Cortez’s mind.

He’s described as “average” looking, but that guy can talk textbook to me anytime.

This book is about Paige Winterbourne, a short, curvy, twenty-three year old witch who is trying to fulfill her mothers dying wish of taking care of twelve year old Savannah Levine, an orphaned (after the last book, Stolen) teenage witch with more power than should be normal at her age.

Paige is fighting a custody battle from a previous captured supernatural, or so it would seem. In truth Paige is fighting a Cabal leader for custody of his only daughter that he hasn’t ever met.

Thrills up the wazoo, fun writing, and just all around great way to introduce the characters that have been woven in and out of the previous books with the weres.

Stolen–Kelley Armstrong

Humans aren’t in the know when it comes to supernatural beings. We are focused on the lore and the materialistic side of it: ie. What could powers DO for me?

In the second of the Otherworld series we are back with the werewolves and Elena Michaels has been captured by a duel working team of supernatural’s and humans. Working to find out all they can and exploit all they can in an under ground facility where they study supernatural’s. The humans are closing in.

Elena, being the only female werewolf, is in high demand since women rarely survive being bitten and are certainly not born with the gene. Being a werewolf is a boys club.

We’ve all likely read something where people or things are being experimented on, it all sounds familiar right? Under ground? Scientists? Humans pushing the limits?

This is a book, while using all the classic scare tactics such as the poking and prodding of science, that also uses the dark side of human nature. Very well written, fresh, and down right stressful while also providing heart warming moments.

I love Elena. She feels like a real person even though she is a werewolf, she admits to being scared, she has panic attacks, she has real people flaws that I enjoy reading about.

Good stuff. (This is why I’m rereading the series book by book instead of just the new ones.)

Constant vigilance.
