Odium II by Claire C Riley - Review

Title: Odium II
Series: The Dead Saga #2
Author: Claire C Riley
Published: May 2014
Format: Ebook received for review

Fortune favours…the DEAD!

Some secrets are too horrific to ever be forgiven, and some people should never be trusted.

Tortured, starved and on the run, Nina thinks she’s faced the worst that mankind has to offer, but she’s wrong. She may have survived this long, but she’s not come out of it unscathed, and there’s worse to come.

Nina’s trusty Doc Martins are showing signs of the zombie Apocalypse, and she isn’t faring much better. With her snarky attitude guaranteed to get her in trouble, Nina needs to forgive the past, and to live once more in the present, and learn that sometimes she needs to place her trust in other people.

Because when people are faced with the end of times, they’ll do anything to survive.

Last night I finished Odium II by Claire C Riley and I loved every freaking minute!!  This book got back to Nina, and her point of view.  I really enjoyed getting the backstories of other characters in Odium Origins, but I really was happy to get back to Nina.  She is the hero, afterall.

Outfoxed By Love by Eve Langlais, Release Day Blitz

Outfoxed By Love
Eve Langlais

Don't moose with his fox!

A bullheaded moose doesn't stand a chance when a fox decides to make him her mate.

Boris left to defend his country still a boy. He came back a changed man. A damaged man.

But Jan still wants him.

A man of few words, Boris has a firm way of saying No, but this determined vixen knows he's her mate. Despite some less than subtle overtures, Jan has not had much success in getting her bullheaded moose to notice her, but all that changes when her life is put in danger.

Suddenly the damaged soldier keeps finding excuses to come to her rescue, but as far as Jan is concerned, her mate is the one in need of saving.

It will take some subtle maneuvering to outfox her moose into admitting he loves her, but this wily vixen is more than ready for the challenge. And if that doesn't work, momma's offered to loan her the shot gun used for her own engagement.

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

I am so excited for this book!!!  We got a sneak peak at these two in Kodiak's Claim, and right away I knew I couldn't wait for Boris' and Jan's story!  And now it's almost here!!

A Vault Of Sins by Sarah Harian (Review)

Title: A Vault Of Sins
Series: Chaos Theory #2
Author: Sarah Harian
Published: September 16, 2014 - Penguin/Intermix
Format: Galley - Thank you Penguin!
In her stunning New Adult debut, The Wicked We Have Done, Sarah Harian introduced readers to the Compass Room: a twisted experimental jail where the guilty and the innocent suffer alike. But breaking out was only the beginning…

Even though she’s escaped, twenty-two-year-old Evalyn Ibarra is anything but free. She’s desperate to return to a life that no longer exists, but prying reporters continually draw her back into nightmarish memories, using the tabloids to vilify her. Bad press is the last thing she needs during the trial of the year: the case that she and her fellow survivors staked against the Compass Room engineers. A case that could terminate the use of the inhumane system forever...

But in her dreams, she is still locked in that terrifying jail.

When she wakes, someone is trying to communicate with her in secret, through strange and intricate clues. As Evalyn follows their signs, she uncovers a conspiracy that goes so much deeper than her own ordeal. A dangerous intrigue that only she can bring to light. One that will force her to work with the one person she doesn’t want to see.

The person who owns her heart...

 This is a crazy crazy series, and I'm totally loving it!  Now, I've kind of messed up my own reading order and totally skipped Our Broken Sky, because when I started reading A Vault of Sins, I thought I was reading Our Broken Sky.  I even emailed my friends and was all like, "Um, guys this book isn't focused on Valerie, like at all..." and then they were like, "Um, Liz, you're a dork, you're reading the wrong book!" and I was all like, "OMG, you're right!" So later I will read Our Broken Sky, which is a novella based on Valerie, who is a bad as hell character and totally deserves to be read.

Ricochet by Keri Lake (Cover Reveal & Giveaway)

The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.

Three years ago, I had everything.

A beautiful wife.

A son.

A reason for living.

Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.

They tried to kill me, too.  I wish they had.  Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.

A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.

I’m no longer Nick Ryder.  I’m a masked vigilante.  Faceless.  Loveless.  Fearless.  A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.

Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am.  Or what I want.  All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.

An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.

If she doesn’t destroy me first.

Predator & Prey, James D Horton (Review)

Title: Predator & Prey
Series: Predator & Prey #1
Author: James D Horton
Published: July 2014 KDP
Format: Ebook received for review
Book Length: 31 pages, Kindle Edition

Lily works the night shift at a radio station, taking calls from forlorn and damaged souls who can't sleep. She knows their pain and they find solace in her comforting words. The city is ruthless; nameless creatures roam the streets and prey on the lost and innocent.

As she leaves work one night at the crest of dawn, Lily comes face-to-face with depravity. She is a survivor at heart, but she is unfairly outnumbered and surrenders to her fate. From the shadows an ally emerges, the mysterious and alluring, Wolf. After coming to Lily's aid, he takes her to shelter.

The immediate danger has passed, but the incident is far from over. Wolf tells Lily she is not prey, and sets off into the night with her by his side to set a wrong right. What she sees when entering the dark heart of the city will change her existence forever. Has Wolf taken on a force too big? Will Lily survive the night?

This story starts off on a really eerie tone, reminiscent of some of the horror movies I used to love back in the day.  Lily is a DJ for late night talk radio.  She's at the station, fielding all sorts of calls every night.  You can imagine what kind of calls that could bring in, right?  I could easily picture it going downhill fast, working there.

Rival by Penelope Douglas (Review)

Title: Rival
Series: Fall Away #2
Author: Penelope Douglas
Published: August 26, 2014 - Penguin
Format: Print copy received for review

Madoc and Fallon. Two estranged teenagers playing games that push the boundaries between love and war…

She’s back.

For the two years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.

I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game…

I’m back.

Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.

But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me….

Ok! Rival by Penelope Douglas – it blew me away! Let me start by saying, I haven’t read any other books in this series, and while I believe this book worked as a standalone, there were references to things that just threw me in the beginning of the book. I do think it would have beneficial to read book one, and I might even go back and read it because Tate and Jared seem pretty damn awesome. With that being said, I’m not sure how they could be better than Fallon and Madoc, because those two just freaking rocked it.
