City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Series: The Mortal Instruments (#6)

Publisher: Walker Books

Published:  May 28th 2014

Summary: “Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last instalment of the internationally bestselling The Mortal Instruments series.
Erchomai, Sebastian had said. I am coming.
Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in this world can defeat him – must they journey to another world to find the chance?”

Review

I’ve waited 2 years to read this book. Why, you ask? Because I was devastated by Clockwork Princess, which came out in 2013, and have been since plagued by its ending (you can see why in my review). So, I knew from the epilogue that some stuff would go down on City of Heavenly Fire (CoHF) and was scared shitless of what I was going to find out. That, and I couldn’t make myself read anything in the shadowhunter world without thinking of Will, so there’s that. Anyway, CoHF was a great book to read (not during midterms like I did), and I laughed, sighed and teared up a bit. However, there were some things that left me thinking and wondering whether this book could have been better.

Now, I’m going to be spoilerly as can be so I’d refrain from reading more if you are planning on reading City of Heavenly Fire (although most people have read it a long time ago, I’m just late for the party woohoo!)

CoHF begins with the shadowhunter’s world at the footstep of a war even they can’t imagine what’s going to be like. Sebastian is on the move, Jace and Clary can’t do the deed without burning up (literally burning up), there’s trouble in paradise for Alec and Magnus, and who the hell knows what’s going on between Izzy and Simon. In all my honesty, when Cassandra Clare announced that some important characters were going to die, I thought immediately that it was going to be either Alec or Magnus. Let’s just say, CC has a flair for the dramatic and after Clockwork Princess I was expecting the worse (yes, one of them dying after their breakup would be the worst thing for me). But fear not, none of these precious characters have died! Now, I was incredibly surprised with the death of dear Jordan, who I honestly couldn’t remember that well but still felt an affinity for. I was shocked when Sebastian killed him in front of Maia, along with the massacre that had happened in the Praetor Lupus (hope I’m writing that right). I was expecting war and devastation, but Sebastion went full bloodthirsty psychopath and reached extremes even I didn’t think were possible.

The Endarkened, shadowhunters turned bad by the Infernal Cup, were a surprise as well. I thought there was going to be a way to cure them, some sort of turnaround for them. It was heartbreaking to see warriors mourn their lost and even worse having to kill their relatives, their friends, just because there was no way of bringing them back. Worst of all, Amatis. I was hoping for a salvation for Luke’s sister, but the way it all ended, I was left heartbroken with the last look of recognition.

I loved Simon’s jokes, and absolutely adored Alec when he was in a good mood. Who doesn’t, he’s hilarious too! One thinh I pitty was not remembering Maureen, at all! Well, didn’t matter that much, though.

Now now, there was some stuff that just didn’t bode that well with me. First of all, when the gang is in Edom, they are in the caves. Some stuff happened before and Jace is now free of the heavenly fire (I told you there were big spoilers). So, obviously, he can finally have sex with Clary. Sexy times in a cavern in the middle of a demon realm, who wouldn’t? The question here is, why did Jace go prepared and have a condom with him. Now, let’s think. The gang had to prepare real fast to leave for Edom. They were gathering water, food and essential stuff. Did Jace really think “well, I have heavenly fire inside be that lights up whenever I feel things but maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to do the deed with Clary there, who knows, it might happen, so I should just take this condom with me.”. I know that Cassandra Clare was probably promoting safe sex, which I completely approve of! However, it was so ridiculous! These scene was completely out of context, and I bet Jace had other worries other than finding condoms when he was preparing for a suicidal mission.

The other thing that I did not like, even though it was the one that brought most tears to my eyes and made me feel things, was making CoHF an extension of The Infernal Devices. I loved that series with all my heart. But please, it ended there. I wanted more Tessa and more Jem, sure. I wanted them to have a happy ending and the epilogue in Clockwork Princess happens in The Mortal Instruments’ world, I know. But it all felt like a cheap shot. Like the author was trying to make the readers feel by making them think about the book that wrenched their heart before. And now, we have to think about Jem being mortal, while Tessa remains immortal, AGAIN. Also, all those William Herondale references. Are you trying to kill me? Again, cheap shot. There are other ways of making the readers feel. Like Simon. I was spoiled on that because I opened on the very last page of the book when I bought it, knowing it wasn’t part of the story, but what I got was an ad for Shadowhunter Academy thingie that told me Simon was a Shadowhunter and we could follow his story there. Come on, that’s just stupid! Who puts that at the end of the book, when that’s the major ending of the story?? For fucks sake. Well, at least we got to meet the real Jonathan Morgenstern, without the demonic eyes and psychopathic soul. I feel for Jocelyn having lost her son again, and I’m sad that we didn’t get to see more of Jonathan.

I will read Lady Midnight to know more about Emma Carstairs. I didn’t know she was going to appear so much on CoHF but I’m intrigued. Also, I’m predicting more Tessa and Jem there (and Church!). If I think Shadowhunter series should end, yes I do. The author should stop writing about the world. But I like it, and will probably read more. It’s my guilty pleasure.

Book Review: A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

 

25380932.jpgA Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole

Series: Immortals After Dark (#2)

Published: 28th March 2006

Publisher: Pocket Star

Goodreads: “Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire—unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death.

A mythic warrior who’ll stop at nothing to possess her…

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy…

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents—until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae—and their notorious dark desires—ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all-consuming desire…

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?”

Review:

Was I ready for A Hunger Like No Other? Not really! I hadn’t read something so sexually charged for a while.

Lachlain MacRieve is an ancient Lykaen warrior, the king of his clan, who had been locked up and tortured with fire for 150 years, and the only thing keeping him sane is his hate for the vampire king. Until one day he scents the perfume surrounding his mate, Emmaline Troy.

Emmaline is a 70-something-year-old half-vampire, half-valkyrie, who’s in Paris looking for her father, an unknown vampire.

When Lachlain feels the scent of his on true mate he is able to free himself of his prison, but once he finds out Emmaline is a vampire he’s not very pleased with the prospect of presenting a vampire queen to his people.

I feel like I could’ve liked this book way better if Emmaline wasn’t such a spoiled little bitch. I liked her in the beginning, she seemed like a nice young gal. But she is so selfish, she only thinks about herself… and to be honest, I couldn’t really feel her “love” for Lachlain.

The world-building on this book is solid, but the way the book wrapped up was not entirely pleasing. It felt fake the way Emmaline finally professed her love for Lachlain.
Oh poor Lachlain, he deserved someone way better than Emmaline. *strangles Emmaline’s little neck*

Book Review: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements, #2)

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Dark Elements (#2)

Published: October 21st 2014

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Blurb: “Every touch has its price. Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…”

Review

You know that moment when you pick up a book that you’re dying to read and when you finish it you just think “What the fuck did I just read?” Yeah… Stone Cold Touch was a bit like that. I’m sure my lovely co-blogger Sofyy would love to disagree with me and make me not write this review but I’m sorry to say that Stone Cold Touch sucks. Big time.

Now, those who know me and who follow me on goodreads know I LOVE Armentrout’s books, she’s a book goddess to me, so let’s just get this clear right away: whatever I say in this review is not against the author, I love her works and will continue to buy her books as soon as they get released. However, Stone Cold Touch was a huge disappointment and I can’t help but vent my frustration on a review.

White Hot Kiss ended with Roth being sucked into the pits of Hell while saving Layla. Stone Cold Touch picks up soon after that scene. Layla is mourning Roth, Zayne is there for her and Bambi is still being the lovely third wheel that won’t let Zayne get too close to Layla, which is fine by me! Suddenly, CHABAM, Roth is back. Shit is happening, a Lillith or whatever has been made and they must destroy it before it destroys the world. I have no problem with the action and where the story is going, for me it’s perfect but knowing JLA one must know there is a heavy dose of romance coming.

I love me some romance. You come to my house and open my bookshelves and you’re hit with rows and rows of romance books and manga! But I don’t like when the characters are desperate for it. Here we have Layla all hung up on Roth (and with reason! He’s perfect goddamnit) when he goes missing and Zayne is back in the game. He’s smart, obviously, who wouldn’t take this perfect chance to get the girl he likes? The problem here is that Zayne only started moving AFTER he found out she was with Roth. And then, Layla is so undecided about who she likes that she kisses Zayne and whatnot WHILE thinking about Roth. And when I say this I mean she is constantly thinking about Roth. While she kisses Zayne, while she touched Zayne’s fabulous abs, when she looks at Zayne, everytime! Okay, if you haven’t guessed it yet, I’m team Roth. He might have been a little of a jerk in the beginning of the book but it’s obvious he’s head over heels for Layla. It was incredibly frustrating to see how the story was developing and knowing that Layla was becoming dumb as a door.

Also, I don’t know what happened but Layla suffered a huge personality change. I’ve read White Hot Kiss some time ago, when it was released, so some things might not be as clear as they should be in my head, but I don’t remember Layla being this sassy or outgoing girl. Contrary to other JLA’s heroines, she was less badass, she was weaker in a sense, and that was perfectly fine. I was a bit thrown off with this change but I want to see where this is going.

On another point, fans of this author already expect cliffhangers as an ending. Although we do get one, I think this book fell short. There was no mystery to what was going to happen. I saw it coming miles away. It was so on your face, everyone can predict the final in the first chapters. It was sad and I just hope that JLA can make a big comeback and finish this series with a bang with Every Last Breath.

Sofyy’s Book Review: Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements, #0.5)

Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Dark Elements (#0.5)

Published: December 1st 2013

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Goodreads:In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…”

 

Review

New series by JLA?! Me: “HELL YEAH BABY, I’M READY, BRING IT ON!”

Even though it was short, it was AMAZING! I was just OMMMGGGG all over the place! When I got my hands on this baby I just told myself “so, no sleeping tonight, you know how it is, you begin reading something by JLA, you know the outcome” Indeed, it was… I spent my night reading this, and yes, I did have class, German class actually… I looked like a zombie and could barely utter something intelligent, yet it was totally worth it!

As usual, JLA created a story that once you start reading nothing else exists beyond that, truly, I will always love this author 🙂

This series is about Gargoyles, no, not ugly Notre Dame Gargoyles, but sexy, human-looking ones xD

(this gif is HILARIOUS!)

This story is depicted on the modern times, 21st century, with one exception, Gargoyles revealed themselves to humans. They were commanded to do so by the angels. Hell had a sort-of revolution, somehow a lot of demons escaped and are now roaming the Earth, creating caos. This made the angels take measures, the Gargoyles had to reveal themselves to the world. (Gargoyles hunt demons, btw).

The main character, Jasmine is one, a Gargoyle Warden, she has always been super protected, Gargoyle females tend to die a lot, so the females are treated as something to be protected and cared for. They aren’t trained and don’t hunt demons, that’s what males are for.

Jasmine is heart-broken, Dez left three years ago without telling her a word about it. Jasmine’s father said that Dez and Jasmine should mate, right afterwards Dez leaves. But, three years later he miraculously appears, even though everyone believed he was dead, there he was, alive, well and wanting to mate Jasmine as if nothing had happened at all.

According to Gargoyle’s traditions, Gargoyles are supposed to wait 7 days after they announce their intentions before they mate. Jasmine still loves Dez, but she refuses to accept their mating, she feels too hurt (quite understandable!). Dez then says he will do anything for her so Jasmine asks for a few tasks: traveling around the US, hunting a demon, skinny-dipping (I think there’s one missing), Dez asks in return for a kiss, a kiss after every task (naughty boy ahaha)

I won’t tell you more, this is a super short story, which made me quite sad, I just kept wanting to read more 😦

One thing that caught my attention was a certain half-Gargoyle/half-demon girl … when I read the part where she shows up, I found myself wishing to read her story, and guess what? This series will be about her! 3 F****** BOOKS CONFIRMED HOLY COW!!!

JLA just makes me want to advance on time to read all her upcoming books! White Hot Kiss (book 1, The Dark Element series) is coming out on January, I know it’s December, but January seems so far away… I just want more (and let’s not talk about THE LUXEN SERIES, DONT GET ME STARTED!)

Fracture the Spider's Web (The Marionettes of Myth, #2)

Fracture the Spider’s Web by Sarah Godfrey and Victoria DeRubeis (blog)

Series:  The Marionettes Myth Saga (#2)

Published: September 1st 2013

Publisher: Self-published

Goodreads: “Even gods can be killed. The sword of Ra had finally responded to Kali’s command—just in time for her to spear her sister, Solara, through the heart. Kali then bled out. Her life ended. When her eyes next opened, she was in an underground hospital, and she wasn’t in possession of her own body.
Toivo and Carmi can only wait under Ave and Elliot’s roof, desperate for news. All they know is that Solara’s body was recovered, but Kali’s is missing, and the funeral for their fathers is nearing. With their family broken and interspecies warfare brewing, the brothers will have to reconcile their grief and do what it takes to keep from losing Kali a second time. They won’t be alone, and they won’t be unchallenged.
But the real war has already begun. Toivo is struck with a mysterious illness, Yuuhi’s vampire parents are calling, and Jason must understand Ares’ motivations, or lose to them. In the end, each of them might just be at the mercy of the hand that holds Ra—or the hands that pull on the web of marionette strings.
Their decisions can stop the war, or ignite it.”

Review

*This review will contain spoilers for book 1 of the series as well as some HIDDEN spoilers for this book.*

Holy shit. Sorry, this was completely necessary to describe my feelings for Fracture the Spider’s Web. Wow, just wow, I really liked Dance in Shadow and Whisper (book 1) but I have to say, this one is even better.

First of all, the feels, oh the feels. So much happens on this book! So, by the end of Dance in Shadow and Whisper, Kali had lost her body to Amon after fighting her own sister. We never found out how that happened or how the situation got all messed up all of a sudden but things went apeshit by the end of that book. We have all the answers in Fracture the Spider’s Web. I’ll try not to spoil much of the book but, come on, it’s kind of difficult not to spill some spoilers when talking about the continuation of a story. Anyway, So Amon finally managed to reincarnate and apparently, so did Ares, his rival. However, not everything is what it seems. I must be honest, I was completely lost at the beginning of the book because I thought some things had happened but, apparently, they hadn’t? I’m not really making much sense, am I?… Well, this book messed up with my mind so you get to deal with all my rambled thoughts now. Really, I tried so many times to predict things and to figure out the reasons why certain characters did what they did and failed so SO many times that I reached a point when I just gave up on trying to get and got completely immersed and engrossed in the story. Since the story is written in various POVs let’s just say that I lived many lives while reading FtSW.

About the actual plot and characters now. I felt like FtSW had a solid, simple (while complex) plotline. So many things happen at the same time: romance appears or grows between some characters (talking about that later on, of course), war schemes are on the making, traps are set, funerals break my heart, even more characters appear while others make their importance known… Your brain will be trying to figure things out while your heart is breaking or you’re laughing hysterically. Hmm this feels like deja vu for me: “book that will leave you laughing hysterically  or crying your heart out” (Review of Dance in Shadow and Whisper)

The funeral scene was definitely the most heart wrenching scene. I wasn’t going to talk about it but I think it’s one of the most powerful scenes in FtSW. The siblings fathers’ were so important for them. Even Solara. After what she had done, they still couldn’t stop thinking about them. True sad scene.

I talked before about big characters’ development. The biggest change we see is in Kali. I remember her as being a weak heroine. Sure, towards the end of book 1 she had changed some but the new Kali in FtSW is really a NEW Kali. She is confident, she is powerful, she is brave. We don’t see her shyness in here. No, no. Actually, it seems like she might have developed some sassyness. Maybe that’s Amon’s influence? I don’t know but I really liked this new Kali, I really did. (And I think Yuuhi did, too *cough*cough* ). I also loved Amon’s Kali. So awesome!

Tovio and Carmi also changed some, There were some revelations about Tovio that took me off guard. I did not expect them and I don’t know how those new aspects will play out in the next book but I am anxious to find out. It gives a new shift in the story and will make so many things change. Argh, how did it come to this?? Carmi is still my favourite character besides Yuuhi (coming yo him in a bit). Oh boy, big surprise with Carmi. I knew something would happen to him. I just knew it! Still bad-mouthed as ever, of course. He is extremely smart and can never throw his own thoughts in every discussion. I… I just love him ahaha.

Yuuhi is still the same as ever. HOWEVER, we found out that he and Ave had a past together and we didn’t know what would happen now that they had got in contact again. You should know that I’m a huge Kali-Yuuhi shipper. Yup, I never wanted Kali-Jason but things were so complicated on the first book that we never found out how everyone felt about each other. Well, we have some couples here! I won’t say who they are but be prepared for being shocked ibysome scenes, betrayed in other and all fuzzy in some. Great romance developments in this book (I’m a romance sucker). Jason kind of disappears in the first third of the book, we all think of him as Ares but some things happen and blah blah and then Ares does stuff and everything becomes complicated all over again. He is a really complex character and I’m really glad that we got some answers about his past and his personality.

Ares and Amon’s war is another thing that threw me completely. You know how they say everything is because of a woman? Well, that is the case in here. I won’t say much, just that some things, well, weren’t really what I had planned and I loved their relationship by the end, if we can even say that. As I said, it was all very complicated. I can only tell you to read the book if you want to understand what I mean. Many characters get involved in this, some reveal their true objectives, others become even more mysterious (Eliot). Cassius plays a bigger role in this book and be sure to remember some strange characters that might slip your mind (I didn’t even thought of them I admit) because they will surprise you.

All in all, Fracture the Spider’s Web was a book that gave me the feels and that went beyond my expectations. It didn’t end with a cliffhanger, it did however, leave me with the feeling of anticipation. I can’t wait to see how the seemingly eminent war will break out or how the relationships between characters will develop. More Golden Boy please!! I wanted to talk about so many things but then this would turn into a book talk. Maybe I’ll do one of those later on. Maybe. Anyway. Amazing book, beautiful story. I’m ready for book 3!

My body is ready - Sanji

Book Review: The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

The Devil's Metal (Devils, #1)

The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

Series: Devils (#1)

Published: September 19th 2012

Publisher: Metal Blonde Books

Summary: “It’s the summer of 1974 and 21-year old Dawn Emerson has only three things she wants to do: compete one last time in the Ellensburg Rodeo, win back her ex-boyfriend Ryan, and become the best damn music journalist at Central Washington University. But all her plans are left in the dust when she’s contacted by Creem magazine to go on the road with one of her favorite groups, the up-and-coming metal band, Hybrid. 
At first the assignment reads like a dream come true. Not only will Dawn land some much-needed credibility as a female music journalist, but she’ll finally get to experience life from the other side of the stage, and maybe crack the drunken, enigmatic code that is guitarist Sage Knightly. Instead, Dawn finds herself on an aging tour bus filled with ego-maniacs, band politics and a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. When monsters start showing up in dressing rooms and some of Sage’s groupies become increasingly strange and dangerous, Dawn discovers the band is not only going places – they’re going straight to Hell. 
And Dawn has a backstage pass.”

Review

Note: This review was posted originally on Goodreads in September 30, 2012. 

SEX, DRUGS AND ROCK N’ ROLL
Description
This is all what the book is about!
Adding the supernatural factors you get a DELICIOUS, FABULOUS, WANT-TO-SLEEP-BUT-CAN’T-UNTIL-FINISH book!

Let me start by saying that after reading “The Devil’s Metal” I’m most definitely going to read Karina Halle’s other series EIT. This is just how awesome this book is.

So, when I first started this book I was expecting something totally different. As the story progressed I was obviously trying to formulate in my little head what the hell was going to happen in the next chapter. Let me tell you, I was almost never right! And that is what makes this book so good.

This is a page-turner. The plot never gets boring: Dawn wants to be a professional music journalist and gets the chance to go on tour with her favourite band, Hybrid, in order to write an article about them. However, there is a turn of events when strange and really creepy things start to happen: who else was really scared when Dawn wakes up in the middle of the night and starts hearing things in the bed below and suddenly there’s the sound of something really heavy falling on the ground and then being dragged?? Of course there is romance in the middle and really mysterious guys.

In fact, I was not expecting that ending Sage does not end up (officially) with Dawn.  There were, however, hints pointing to something that was, let’s say, a little obvious by the last part of the book, but that is definitely going to make (I HOPE) a second fabulous book!

Cover Reveal: Fracture the Spider’s Web by Sarah Godfrey and Victoria DeRubeis

Since I’ve read Dance in Shadow and Whisper, book 1 in the Marionettes of Myth Saga, I’ve been ecstatic to read the next book in the series.

Revel yourself in the beauty that is the cover for Fracture the Spider’s Web!

If you haven’t read book 1, what are you waiting for?? Starting tomorrow it’s only  99cents! Check my review of it if you want.

I can’t post the summary of Fracture the Spider’s Web because of the spoilers (see the authors’ website) so check out Dance in Shadow and Whisper’s blurb!

Dance in Shadow and WhisperDance in Shadow and Whisper summary:

“Kali unexpectedly discovers on her first day of human high school that she’s forbidden to eat or partake of the toilet during class time, the assigned history and species books look best on the shelves of popular fiction, and the boy she’s watching over is definitely a reincarnated war lord.
The highest powers of Kali’s people and the highest powers of Yuuhi’s people, irreconcilable enemies, designated them to find proof that Jason is, in fact, the reincarnated Ares.
All Yuuhi sees in Jason is the typical scrawny, socially inept emo kid dressed in conflicting shades of black. But Kali sees that Jason’s shadow is bigger than he is, and if the powers of Yuuhi’s people find out, Jason won’t be human much longer.
The desire to protect him from an unexpected visitor brings out her most dangerous sides. Something’s changing in her, something she can’t control, and she’s not afraid of Jason mutating into a creature of the shadows more than she’s afraid she’s becoming something even worse.
And the highest powers will be watching her.”
