The Revealers by Amanda Marrone

I am so glad…you don’t even know…that this book was good. I saw so much potential in her first book, Uninvited, and was so disappointed that I just had to go out and find her newest release. I know, it’s not typical to keep reading an author that you are disappointed in, but sometimes you have to suck it up and try again.

I wrote a pretty ugly review of her first novel, but here I would like to only say how much I liked it.

I don’t know that I want to give away any of the plot or plot twists. Let’s just say that the book is about a group of witches, young girls, that are about to turn 18. Each girl is excited to learn the secret of the coven on their 18th birthday, wanting to know why they have so many traditions to follow and why there are big consequences if they are challenged.

As each girl in turn becomes 18, they learn the secrets of the coven and have to face the challenges that lay ahead of them. Will they stick to the traditions of their mothers or will they go against the coven and regret it?

It’s a short read, but well worth it. It kept me wanting to know more throughout. One thing I do want to say is, the main girl in the story, Jules, I wanted to know more about her relationship with Connor, boyfriend and coven leaders son.

Untamed by P.C. and Kristin Cast

I really enjoyed this book. It has so much more action…well I guess I can call it “action” in it. We finally get the red fledglings out in the open and get to see what they are going to do for the rest of the series. I love how the story has unfolded throughout the series. Each book gives you a piece of the puzzle, but not everything and keeps you wanting more. What will happen next, is the greatest ending to any novel. If a reader keeps asking that throughout and especially at the end of a novel then you know that you have hooked them.

I really don’t want to give out all of the secrets of this book or the series. I want people to have a first hand experience with the characters and the elements throughout the books. In saying that, I will not make any comments on what I think might happen in the next book, Hunted, or the past books.

If you’re looking for a great read about vampires and witchcraft, then this is definitely the series to read. I’ve read so many different angles on vampires and witches and for this to have a little of both and be so darn good is amazing. The order of the House of Night novels: Marked, Betrayed, Chosen, Untamed and Hunted…so far. Go to your library or bookstore and pick it up. It’s worth it!!!

Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead

I love paranormal fiction and this was one of the best ones that I’ve read. Yes, it has a lot of romance in it and I’ve always said that I prefer my reads to be paranormal with a little romance rather than romance with a little bit of paranormal, but it works in this novel. Plus this was more half and half anyway.

Georgina Kincaid is a succubus with moral ethics. She’s supposed to be one of the bad guys, but in reality, she does more good then harm. In this sequel, we get to see her relationship with Seth develop and also get to sneak a peek into her past when a long time friend comes to town for a visit. Along with her friend from the past, comes trouble. Trouble seems to follow Georgina wherever she goes. She has to find a way to keep her friend from being sent to the outskirts and to help her co-workers battle a drug that makes them think they are gods.

I really enjoyed this chapter in the series. We get to learn about the realm of gods and different religions and how they all play into Richelle Mead’s world. She plays with the idea that gods, demons, spirits and all things supernatural from different religions and cultures exist, but only if they are still believed in. The more you believe in one deity, the more power that deity will gain.
