Who knew that my favorite tv show is also a graphic novel . I devoured this comic in like 10 mins . ORPHAN BLACK HELSINKI by Graeme Manson

                            BOOK BLURB

   Helsinki. Spoken in hushed tones, the word means almost certain death for the clones of Project Leda. Learn the dark secrets of this codename in this special event miniseries by co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson.      

                          MY REVIEW
   I was so excited when I found out that Orphan black was in graphic novel form. I devoured this book in a matter of an hour. This is a dark gritty addition to the tv series . The graphic novel gives us a more in depth look at the characters .  We learn more about the clones and Project Leda.
   The graphic novel is dark and gritty , the artwork is great and adds to the story. You get sucked in from the very first page . There are new characters that come into play and some great old characters and clones we love .
   Reading this graphic novel makes me want to re watch the show and I can't wait for the next installment of the graphic novel .

Happy Wednesday all , I was so excited to see the second book in this series . I absolutely fell in love with Ricky Fleet's debut novel HELL SPAWN . Well I read his second book HELL SPAWN ODYSSEY in one evening . It was that good .

                            BOOK BLURB

Kurt Taylor and his family have battled the living and the dead and now find themselves on the run, their home reduced to ashes. With unimaginable horror lying in wait around every corner, the onset of winter and the plunging temperatures only add more danger to their precarious existence. They decide to forge ahead and try to reach the protection of others who have hopefully survived the zombie apocalypse. If this fails, their only choice would be to try and reach an impregnable fortress, a sanctuary that has stood for a thousand years.
Standing between them and salvation are the villages and cities of the damned, a path that will test their spirit and resilience unlike anything they have faced before. More companions are rescued from the jaws of death and join them in their perilous journey. Mysterious attacks befall the group and it becomes clear the dead aren’t the only things that lurk in the darkness.
Tempers fray and personalities clash. The group starts to fracture and Kurt is forced to commit acts that cause him to question his own morality. Can they survive the horror of their new existence? Will they want to?
The Hellspawn saga continues.

                          MY REVIEW
   This book picks up where the last book left off . Kurt and the gang are trying to make their way to safety. They are leaving their house and everything they knew . They are still fighting the zombies and pick up a couple more survivors on the way . As the journey continues they run into other survivors and mysterious attackers . Will they survive the apocalypse , the attackers and will they survive each other .
    This story took off with a bang and kept on going till the end.  Kurt and the gang are put through the ringer in this book. Between trying to stay one step ahead of the zombie horde that is coming and trying to keep everyone from loosing it. You can see them struggling big time . The gang is still together and they pick up a few more characters along the way. Some of them you will love and then there are some that you really want to punch in throat repeatedly because of the selfishness that this character has . I must say the author has packed this book full of emotion and suspense.  Ricky puts his characters through the ringer in this book .  You feel the emotions flowing off the pages and be on the edge of your seat the whole way through the book. I was flipping pages like there was no tomorrow trying to figure out who was chasing them and if a certain character gets it in the end .
   The characters in this book are so well developed and complex , you will either like them or hate them . Kurt is taking on a more darker roll this time around , he is really trying to get his family to safety but things just keep getting in the way and make him rethink what he has done and has to do to survive . He needs to keep his family safe but at what cost to him and his soul. He changes through out the book.  The rest of the group are also becoming a bit darker and more into the need to survive mode . They are not taking anyone or anything for granted anymore , not even the military . We also have a few new characters that come aboard this time around . Debbie and Peter are the first new characters we meet . Peter is for the lack of a better word a wimp when we first meet him . He is scared of his fiancé. As you read into the story we see Peter grow stronger as he gets closer and closer to Kurt and the gang . Paige seems to bring out the best in him. As for his fiancé Debbie she is an evil .evil woman. She is a whiner and a spoiled brat that doesn't want any help from anyone . She just wants to make trouble for everyone . Trust me I so wanted to punch her in the throat repeatedly, I so disliked her from the first moment I met her. I will say that is great writing when you instantly dislike a character so much and there is no way of making her good . She makes trouble for everyone, trust me on this you will dislike her .
     This book will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through, the author takes us on a journey with so many twists and turns . You will not know what hit you from page to page. The author has his own way of writing that is unique to the way he tells a story. For being his second novel he has placed the bar high . I love his unique twist on the zombie story and so can't wait to read the next book in the series . I know I will not be disappointed in the least. So if you want a great story with great characters both good and evil . This is the book series for you , so check out HELL SPAWN series by Ricky Fleet.

Good Monday all . Today we are going a little spicy for you all

 Well welcome to Monday all, today we are going to spice it up for you a bit, I got the chance to read a very spicy novelette that will kind of melt your kindle .

                            BOOK BLURB

Lucy, a succubus still coming to terms with her special nature, falls in love with her hairdresser. Elbe isn't the type of girl she usually falls for, but after seeing her stand up to her bigoted brother, Lucy is impressed by Elbe's confidence and energy, convinced there's more to this girl underneath her shy and timid personality.
She offers Elbe her friendship, which quickly turns into scalding passion.
But Elbe's brother, in his religious zealousness, isn't so easily deterred...

                         MY REVIEW
  I was so blown away when I got this book. I dived right in and loved it from the first page. Let me introduce you all to Lucy, a sexy succubus that is in lust with her hair dresser. She is drawn to Elbe a sweet and almost innocent looking hair dresser . But Elbe is more then she seems and is shows it when she does stand up to overzealous brother.
  The author revs up the heat but also the heartbreak in her story . We see Elbe as shy and timid at the beginning of the story as she fights the emotions that are coming over her . We can feel the sexual tension between both Lucy and Elbe. Elbe wants more and so does Lucy. As the story goes we see Elbe grow stronger and fight back against her bigoted brother and win Lucy. I liked to see Elbe fight back , she finally took that step to be who she is and found the power . Now Lucy's character is a succubus an she just oozes sex. She is strong and knows what she wants . She is drawn to Elbe and wants her and more . There is something that is different and the succubus is going to find out what it is . I must say the twist in the story is perfect for this couple .
  Elbe's brother is a character that I really just wanted to punch in the throat, over and over . He hides behind religion to push his agenda with his sister . That just drove me crazy cause I felt for Elbe and Lucy. He really got his in the end also which I actually cheered .  These characters were very well written and developed . You came to care for them and want to beat the brother up big time.
   I feel that this is a little more then an erotic story . Let me tell you there is a lot of hot sex that will make you blush , but most of all it is a love story . The topic of the story is showing that all sorts of relationships from gay to transgender can have a great loving relationship. The author didn't pull any punches and showed what these couples go through and all the hatred that comes from people .
  This was a great fast read for me , took me about an hour to read . The author threw in twists and turns that will keep you reading. This book has it all , love, sadness. disappointment , and acceptance . So if you want to read a good story about a transgender couple , with a good dose of sexiness thrown in check it out . You will not be disappointed

   Good Friday all , been busy week here. I have been reading up a storm and was so excited to find out that one of my all time favorite authors had written a novella about two of my favorite characters from her boo series . So let me introduce you to THE WARRIORESS by J.D Brown.

                            BOOK BLURB

"My Life Before Yours, In Death and All Things"

Three-hundred years ago, a vampyre named Naamah caused the death of Maria's father. Now Naamah is back, and he intends to finish off the werewolves. Maria will do anything to protect her pack, even if it means betraying her heart and marrying him. When a greater threat arises, Maria must set her bitterness aside and join forces with Naamah to save both their people. Can she trust him and still be true to herself, or will they undo each other before their enemy even reaches them?

Naamah must lead his people to safety, but championing peace in the process is difficult for a vampyre that's better apt with a sword. He needs a princess's touch to heal his battle-stricken clan, but what he gets instead is a warrioress. If he can't earn Maria's trust and tame the wolf within her, they'll lose everything.

Set in 1100 BCE, The Warrioress is a prequel to The Ema Marx Series by J.D. Brown. The story chronicles the romance between Maria and Naamah during the very early trials of their immortal lives.

                               MY REVIEW
       Ok I must admit I was sooooo excited to hear that J.D was writing this novella. Maria and Nammah are such a staple through out the Ema Marx series . They have been there since the beginning and we really never knew anything about them and their early years .   In this novella we see the beginning of their love. Starting way back in 1100 BC and the tribes
    This story has so much going on, when we first meet Naamah and Maria they are young and hiding from the attack that is father is doing to her clan . Their first meeting was sweet as they see each other something takes hold in Naamah's heart . When they meet later he invades her wedding day . A day that she actually is dreading. As they find their way around each other , they are drawn to each other but Maria is a fighter and doesn't want to be part of his world . The violence of getting the other tribes to join them. As we read we see them start to lower their defenses and fall in love, fight to save themselves and their tribe. We see Naamah turn his shy little spit fire into the warrior . We also get the first look of the boys Jesu and Jalamari and the reasoning why they decided to be there for them .
  This was such great read for me . I have always wondered about Maria and Naamah's back story . The author did a great job in telling their story . She created such a great world for them and how they met and the way they fell in love . There were some twists an turns that kept me turning the pages . There is just one thing I just wished it was longer , I got totally engrossed in their story. So if you have been reading the Ema Marx series this is a great addition to the series . Check it out .

good monday everyone

  Good Monday morning all . I hope you all had a great weekend .  Have you ever gotten so wrapped up in a book that you get started and finish in a day. Well that's what happened to me this weekend . SHIFTERS A Samantha Reece Mystery by Jamie Johnesee

                             BOOK BLURB

When a serial killer begins leaving remains of victims in hotel bathtubs all over town FBI Agent Samantha Reece makes it her business to stop him.

This detective's got an ace up her sleeve in the form of her ability to shift into the guise of a were panther. As she tracks down the cold-hearted murderer she also has to contend with an anti-shifter group determined to destroy her.

                           MY REVIEW
  Welcome to Samantha Reece's world , she is a detective with the FBI and also a jaguar shifter . She is on the hunt for a serial killer , who is making soup out of shifters .  Not that she has enough on her plate with her jaguar and the serial killer . Her maker shows up and puts her jaguar in a constant state of arousal .  There also is the anti sup league that wants all shifters dead . Will she survive the serial killer and will she give into what she wants with her jaguar.
    We first meet Sam in Bob the Zombie , where they are great friends and help each other out . Now she has her own spin off book. She is a tough as nails FBI agent with special abilities . She is a jaguar shifter which helps her out in her job. She is cocky and I love her, we see her be the kick ass detective and then we see her come undo a bit when she is getting attacked by all sides . Its nice to see her fight feeling for the man who bit her . She keeps trying to say that it is sire bond and tries to rationalize everything . There are some really great moments in the book that had me laughing out loud . Especially when her jaguar is acting all slutty and she wants nothing to do with that , it always seems to pop up at the wrong time  We also have some great supporting characters in the book that make you laugh and a couple that you kind of really want to climb like a spider monkey, they are hot shifters I will tell you that much.
   Now some people say that this book was slow moving, I didn't find that at all . I got so engrossed in the book that I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters and how the author started out and developed the characters . She takes us on a great fun ride full of twists and turns . One minute you think you have it figured out and bam nope wrong person. There is also quite a bit of funny scenes that will make you laugh and some scenes that will make you shed a tear . So if you want a good book that will make you laugh and have a good time check it out . I can't wait for book t

   Good Friday all . today we are going to review book one and two in a series . I have been reading a lot of new zombie authors as of lately. For some reason I am loving the zombie/ apocalyptic books . I found this author through a friend . So let me introduce you to I.J Smith and his books DEAD & ALIVE SURVIVE  and his new book DEAD&ALIVE SACRAFICE .

Great Britain has been evacuated and quarantined, access is forbidden. When a mysterious message is received, they send in a Army Section to investigate. What they discover will send them on a journey through hell, can they survive, can they make it out within 24 hours.

                           MY REVIEW
    I couldn't believe how I sucked into this book got . I loved how the author sets up the story just after things started happening. This is set as the military in the background , our group of spunky zombie killers are all from the military. Jack is our unlikely hero trying to keep everyone together. They keep moving and hunting and just trying to survive .
  Jack is the type of character that you will want to be in your corner . he is tough and yet he cares for all of the survivors . He is all man but also has a caring side . He and the rest of the survivors. They make a great team and will do anything to survive .
 This was a great story , that flowed really well. The characters were well developed and you can't help care about them . They will make you laugh and you will shed some tears along the way . There is action from the very first page , you will be sitting on the edge of your seat through the whole story. You can tell the author poured his all into his characters . This is the first book I have read by this author and I cant wait to read more .

book two                     BOOK BLURB

Jack and the team stayed behind in a Zombie infested London. Their goal to save as many as they can. Before they can move the living enemy attacks, causing the fight to live and a sacrifice is needed.

                            MY REVIEW
  Welcome to book two DEAD&ALIVE SACRIFICE . We pick up right were book one left off . Jack and the gang are saving as many survivors as they can . But sometimes the cost is too much .  They meet up with some new evil characters  We get sucked into the action on the very first page the characters are becoming more developed in this book.  We see them move more as a team and a close knit family. The author is pulling us deeper and deeper in to their lives and if they will to survive .
 We get to know more in depth the character of Alina, she is evil and boy there are some scenes with her that will make you squirm. She is evil and I mean evil and I loved her.
  The author has really improved his story telling in this book. The flow of the book was good and it read really fast . There is a twist at the end that will make you cry , and I did cry . I can't wait to read more from this author . Lets see what book three has in store for us . Please check out this author , I am sure he will be on your tbr list soon ,

Books to curl up with: GOOD THURSDAY EVERYONE:    Good Thursday all , today we are going review AFTER THE RAIN by Mary J Williams .                                                   BOO...


   Good Thursday all , today we are going review AFTER THE RAIN by Mary J Williams .
                          BOOK BLURB

Welcome to the NFL.
The Seattle Knights have the hottest players in the game. On and off the field.


Logan Price is getting a second chance.
Claire Thornton is going to make sure it counts.

Logan Price was living his dream. After years of hard work he finally made it. Starting running back for the Knights.
After only a few games, he was a fan favorite. There were whispers of a rookie of the year award.
It all ended with a devastating injury to his leg that sent him back to Oklahoma. A failed attempt at a comeback sent him into a deep depression.
His life became about two things. Working at his father's bar, and running. One filled his days. The other made getting through the endless nights a little easier.
When an old friend offers Logan a lifeline, he's reluctant to grab hold. He could live without football--barely. But he didn't think he could survive getting his hopes up only to lose it all again.
Claire Thornton's dreams are just as big as Logan's. She left the small town where she was born, to make something of herself. It hasn't been easy. A woman with no money and no connections. Everything she has, she's earned. Helping Logan Price get back to the NFL will prove to her detractors that she can be a trainer. She is determined to make it in a male-dominated world.
The attraction is instantaneous.
The reasons not to get involved too numerous to list.
It only takes one kiss--one touch--for them to realize if they want their dreams to come true they need more than luck. They need each other.

                       MY REVIEW
     I enjoyed this book . it was the first sports related book I have read . This is Logan and Claire's story. Logan Price is an ex NFL football player , who after a career ending injury is back home running his father's bar.  He is basically becoming a recluse and just wants to be left alone . Then in walks in Claire a sports medicine physiotherapist that tells Logan she can get him into shape. .  They find they have a spark and a chemistry that is undeniable . Will they be able to realize their dreams and be together .
    This was an enjoyable quick read for me . The characters were sweet and kind of annoying at times . Claire was really gungho and going all out all the time . She sometimes comes off a snob . But we do see her go after what she wants . Logan has a chip on his shoulder a mile high. Which really needed to be knocked down . You see him change as you read into the story. He becomes more confident and more himself .
  This was an enjoyable book that will suck you in and keep you reading . Its a feel good book with a lot of fun steamy times . It is a fast read even though it is over 200 pages . So if you want a book with a lot of steamy times and a hot couple  who get a happy ending . Check out AFTER THE RAIN

  Good Monday all , today I am doing something a bit different . Today I am going to do two reviews on two different books in a series because they actually are written at the same time with sisters .  Today we are writing about Scarlett and Silver the news books in the Sexy Shifter Fairy tales by Jessica Aspen.

                            BOOK BLURB

Trapped in an isolated cabin with trouble on the way, how is Scarlett to know that the man who could be her prince, is actually a bear shifter in disguise.

Scarlett Rose screwed up—she used show and tell to prove to her sister that her boyfriend was a jerk. A year later and Silver is still pissed, but Scarlett is given a gift from the grave—their grandfather has left a will that forces the two of them to live together in his cabin deep in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Now Scarlett has the chance to make her sister see that she’ll do anything—even change her wild ways for good—all for the chance to earn Silver’s forgiveness.

But the Rose girls don’t know that the mountain they grew up visiting every summer has been the home to bear shifters for years—and now the bears want the land back. All the land.

Rose sisters…or no Rose sisters.

Cam Beresford has spent his life being the town drunk’s son. Even now, when he and his brothers are finally successful game designers, the town’s old guard still sees them as unpredictable wild cards. But when the last non-shifter owner on Beresford Mountain dies, Cam knows this is his chance to buy back the property and show the town that the Beresford boys are not their father’s sons.

But, Scarlett isn’t as anxious to sell the property as Cam thought a city girl would be. And with someone on the mountain leaving nasty presents for the Rose girls, Cam’s inner bear is roused to protect, even if Scarlett is merely human.

With the danger growing increasingly higher and Silver threatening to leave, Scarlett’s time is running out. And when Cam tumbles over the edge of desire into the mating dance, will he be able to pull back? Or will his bear take over and take Scarlett to the edge?

Lions and wolves and bears, oh my.

                       MY REVIEW
  Welcome to the world of shifters and their fairy tales . These aren't your everyday fairy tale . They are a little bit twisted and a whole lot sexy . Let me introduce you to Scarlett and her sister Silver.
 Lets see Scarlett really screwed up and she is on a mission to fix it . On the way to claim her inheritance from her grandfather, who knew its was going to get so complicated in the process. Al she wanted to do is make it up to her sister for all the pain she caused . But things don't go as planned and a hot bear shifter comes along and throws everything out of balance . Will they survive the onslaught of what is happening and will they love each other
  I loved the character of Scarlett . she is flawed but also so sweet . She had done bad things but she thinks she has done them for the right reasons. There are other ways to show her sister Silver that her ex was bad. She thinks very poorly of herself and we see her struggling and wanting to have everything right . We also see her start to grow up a bit and realize that she can only love her sister . She also falls in love with Cam. 
 Now Cam is a shifter trying to put the past behind him and prove to everyone that he isn't the poor son of a drunken dad . He works hard to see himself as better then everyone else. As he falls for Scarlett you see him start to let go of the past and realize that he is good enough to love and be loved . They make the perfect pair and even his bear likes her .
  This was a nice light quick read for me , I have read both books in an evening . The author takes on a great journey , with lots of twists and turns . Oh there is also a lot of nice hot steamy sex involved .
You will love these characters and trust me you will want to climb Cam like a spider monkey. He is one hot man and oozes sexiness . The story is great and you will cheer for the heroes and you might even shed a tear or two. So if you want a sexy twisted fairy tale that will keep you reading and wanting more. This is the book for you .

                           BOOK BLURB

In all the best fairytales, bear shifters mate for life. Right?

Silver Rose is on the edge of bankruptcy. The only way she can get enough money to pay off her bills is to live with the sister who betrayed her at their grandfather’s isolated cabin in the Rocky Mountains. But, someone doesn’t want the girls to succeed and is leaving nasty surprises, each one worse than the last. And now bankruptcy and getting close to her sister aren’t the only danger in the woods.

Abe Beresford has seen the worst side of the mating bond and he never wants to be that attached to anyone. When he has a one night stand with Silver, he’s confident there is no risk of falling in love—or even worse, mating for life. But when he starts to feel more than just lust for the lovely Silver, he backs off, hurting Silver’s feelings but protecting his heart.

But Abe can’t resist either Silver or the urge to claim his mate—even if she’s human and hasn’t a clue about bear-shifters. And when Silver runs into trouble on the mountain, can Abe avoid the mating bond and still save her from a rabid attacker? Or is he doomed to succeed at rescuing her only to watch her walk away?

Lions and wolves and bears, oh my.

                          MY REVIEW
  Welcome to Silver's side of the story , which I found was very entertaining and we find out what really went on between her and Scarlett. She is just as screwed up as poor Scarlett but just hides it better . She is going through so much and is under so much pressure. She decides to do have a one night stand with  Abe, Cam's brother and a bear shifter in his own right . But all is not what it seems there is more to this couple . Will they survive each other and the person who is threatening them..
  Silver is a very flawed character. I kind of thought at the beginning she was a whining little girl that needed to really grow up . She was acting like a real brat with her sister . As you read we find out the whole story you start to feel for her and start to like her . Abe is going through a lot of pressure and can't seem to keep it together . Trying to get through the day. As they come together they seem to be each others calming points and after so much misunderstanding they finally realize that they do belong together
    This book is written at the same time as Scarlett and we see both sides of the story and how each character has developed. She takes us on a journey of love and healing , with some sexy twists involved. This was another quick read for me and I have come to love all the characters in the sexy fairy tales and each and everyone of them. They are great light reads that will take you away for a few hours and leave you a little happier and you will have a giggle or two .  So check them out .

  Good Sunday all , I am sitting here with my peppermint mocha , thinking about the way an author can effect you reading . I found this author awhile ago and read her first book . It blew me away, it was dark and compelling and the characters were so complex . So I have read everything that she has put out . I must say DARK NOTES is her best work today . So let me introduce you to DARK NOTES by Pam Godwin. 

                            BOOK BLURB

They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.

                         MY REVIEW
   What can I say , this book blew me out of the water . We all have had crushes our teachers when we were in school but this book takes it in a totally new direction . Ivory and Emeric are two people that are tough and hard when they are apart but when together they are like fire and ice . They are also from totally different worlds .  We see instant chemistry between the student and the teacher. They are drawn to each other and become obsessed with each other . They become student , teacher . master, sub and lovers . Will they survive or will they end up only hurting each other.
   This is one book that I couldn't put down, I had one of those up all night reading sessions . The author takes us on such a journey through this book .  I couldn't help but fall in love with Ivory and Emeric.  Ivory is such a complex girl. She has been through so much . Her family is non existent and she has been abused since she was 13 yrs old . But she has persevered and is about to graduate from a prestigious music academy. She is shunned and treated like dirt by all the snotty rich kids that go there. You see her struggle but survive and she stands strong among the rich kids.  She is a survivor . After she meets Emeric you see her change. He may be hard on her, she becomes more confidant and feels like she can take on the world .   She changes so much and becomes such a strong woman that you are blown away by her .

Books to curl up with: TODAY WE HAVE A BOOK THAT WILL MAKE YOU THINK:     Have you ever picked up a book and start to read and go wow after the first page . Going what did I get myself into and loving every sec...


    Have you ever picked up a book and start to read and go wow after the first page . Going what did I get myself into and loving every second of it . Then I find out that this novel is the author's first book . UNITED WE STAND ( Civilization book 1) by Jeff Zimmerman

                             BOOK BLURB

After an advanced society is wiped out by a nuclear war, a group of survivors venture out of their bunker into the wastes to scavenge the remnants. The group discovers that artificial intelligence caused the war. To keep humanity from coming to an end they must stop the technology from progressing.

                             MY REVIEW
   This book blew me away , I started reading it and in the first chapter I was OMG what did I get myself into. The way the intelligence in the first chapter had me going oh my. What if this actually could happen. I mean what would you do if the end of the world was actually started by A.I and all mankind is either annihilated or have gone into hiding . The book starts out with a plucky group of  survivors that find an underground bunker .  Where they find an A.I  machine and pods for suspended animation. Where we meet Jock and find out about him as he is suspended. The history sets up the whole story so well . We find that Jock is trained to be a killer and we have the man the y call god . Jock realizes as he hunts for the rest of his crew that A.I  is ruining the world and that they must be stopped .
   The main character Jock is umm what can we say . He is an alpha male all the way but he is also very screwed up. He wasn't loved from the moment he was born , his parents just ignored him and then sent him to the foundation where they made him into the killing machine he is .  He tells us about his life as he dreams it . He is a complex character that I would love to see become more of and learn more about. The man who calls himself God was well lets just say he was to me evil . It felt like he was like the antichrist the way he proclaimed he was God and wanted to take over the world. He was a scary dude. I mean all the characters in the book are so complex and so intense , you are constantly worrying about them .
    I couldn't believe it when I read this book , I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. I had to look into the author. I honestly thought that this book was written by someone way older . When I found out this incredible book was written by a 17 year old , I was truly amazed and astonished . This book will take you on an incredible journey. You will start to think of wow what if that actually happened . What would you do and how would you survive? This book will make you think of all the dependency we have on electronics and how much of our lives we have given over to those devices .  So if you like sci fi and want a great book that might hit a little too close to home please give this book a chance . I can't wait for book two and all the other books this young author has in brain . We will be hearing a lot more from this author .

Books to curl up with: WE HAVE AN AWESOME NEW BOOK OUT TODAY:    Good morning all , I have a cool new book to tell you about. It is out today and it has cool mermen and a human heroine oh and did I say ...


   Good morning all , I have a cool new book to tell you about. It is out today and it has cool mermen and a human heroine oh and did I say it is set in Scotland . So here it is SIN AGAINST THE SEA by Nina Mason.

                             BOOK BLURB

They only harm those who sin against the sea...

Cordelia Parker, an oil company spokeswoman, has never believed in magic, despite her late mother’s fanciful stories. Then, during an oil spill in Scotland’s mysterious Minch, her reality is shattered when she stumbles upon a merman in a hidden cave. Even more shocking, she feels the same soul-level connection to him she felt for the ocean before it claimed both her parents.

A fish out of water in his sexist culture, Cuan feels a powerful attraction to Cordelia, but, because she knows what he is, he is duty-bound to kill her. If humankind discovers the Blue Men of the Minch are real, they will destroy them the way they destroy the ocean, whose abundance belongs at once to all and none. Thus, the only way he can have a life with her is to prove she is more than she appears, trust her with his secrets, and give up his undersea world.

With so many obstacles to overcome, they will need a miracle to be together…
or maybe just a splash of ancient island magic.
                         MY REVIEW
         Want a good book about Mermen, this is the book for you . Sins Against the Sea is about Cuan and Cordelia. Cuan is part of the Blue Men of Minch, a very sexist culture of mermen that protect. An oil spill has brought Cordelia over to the Scottish strait. She is a spokesman for the oil company, that had the spill. They stumble upon each other and there is a strong bond and an instant  attraction , even when Cordelia finds him in mer form . They end up being together and they want to stay together will they survive the obstacles and will they find a way to stay together , maybe all they need is love and a little bit of old island magic .
    This was such a fun read for me, I felt like I was being whisked away to Scotland to the shores . You could almost smell the salt air and hear the waves crashing . The way the author writes and creates her stories is like a little dash of magic and a whole lot of love.  The author takes us on a trip that will leave you breathless and smiling. The characters are complex and trust me you will fall in love with them. Sometimes you will want to slap them upside the head and other times you will want to hug them and tell them that everything will be ok. These characters are the ones where you want to hold them and tell them you will get through it and everything will be ok .
   Cordelia is such a sweet character , you see her in the beginning as a sad person, she doesn't like her job very much. She basically took over after her father died .  She seemed to me to be a bit naïve at the start of the book , but as you read you see her become a strong woman who will fight for anything and everything . Cuan is oh soooo hot , he is a merman that well is bucking all the traditions of his culture as he like girls . He is such an alpha male and you see him fight the urge to be honor bound to his brethren. As he fall in love with Cordelia we see him become a fierce protector of Cordelia and the ocean .  They become such a strong force to reckoned with when they are together and the things we find out about them are so sweet and magical.
    This story is a fast read , you could read it in an evening if you wanted to. I will warn you once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down . The characters popped out at you and the story flowed so well , its like you are right there with them .  There is just one thing the story seemed to wrap up too easily and fast . I just wish we could of had just a little bit more action towards the end and keep us hanging on . Over all i really loved this book and I really want to meet my own Cuan . Maybe i need to take a trip to the shores of Scotland and see what I can find. Maybe I can find my own Cuan.
If you read this book you will be wanting your Cuan also. So if you want a great book with a sweet couple and a dash of old Scottish magic . Check it out .
