Chase The Dark – Annette Marie Review

51uPo-q8o6L._SS300_

Chase The Dark is fresh and exciting and a paranormal sort of romance that no lovers of the genre should miss out on! I picked up the novel not sure what to expect, but intrigued nonetheless. A young keeper of peace, a steamy incubus, and a dangerous draconian? Yeah… sign me up please.
When I cracked open the pages, I have to admit I was a little (teensy, tiny) bit disappointed to see that it was third person. Most of what I read and love as of late tends to be in a first person point of view, so I was a little hesitant but read on to give the novel the chance it deserved. I needed to meet the two heroes at least. Sticking with this was one of the best reading decisions I’ve ever made.

Piper is one of the most determined heroines I’ve read about. So many want something, but few – if any, want anything as badly as Piper wants to be a Consul. She can be a little selfish sometimes and maybe a little judgmental too, but these traits make her real and believable. There are so many heroines that are perfect and define goody-two-shoes, so it’s refreshing to see someone acting like a more normal teenager. Because yes, teenagers and people in general have a tendency to occasionally be selfish. Piper isn’t whiney though. She doesn’t grow tried of fighting for her position, nor does she spend the entire novel complaining of her lot in life or crying over anything that’s happened. Not that she has much time. This is one heck of an action packed book. As a reader, I was barely able to catch my breath before my heart started racing again as new twist or turn occurred.

Lyre. I love Lyre. He is easily one of my favorite characters to fall into the roll of sidekick. He’s sexy but sweet. He’s loyal as they come. He’s rational. And he doesn’t beat around the bush. When Piper needs to man up, Lyre doesn’t hesitate to tell her as much. Our other leading male, Ash, is about as dangerous as they come. He remains fairly mysterious and we don’t understand many of his motives throughout the novel but it sure is fun to speculate. It’s clear that he wants to help and he, for some reason, is very protective of Piper. If only near death experience after near death experience fostered more romance… Still we may or may not get a few moments that will have you swooning.

This is certainly a wonderful start to the series and one you shouldn’t want to miss!

SOAR – Cold Mark Saga – Scarlett Dawn

soar_amazon

I am so thrilled to announce the release of Soar by Scarlett Dawn. This is the fifth, and final, installation in the amazing COLD MARK SAGA! If you haven’t already gotten your hands on it, go buy it here immediately! 

Blurb:

New York Times bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, captures the perfect last installment of The Cold Mark Saga, where trust is earned and love soars…

Braita Valorn is a disaster walking. One mistake after another on the planet Triaz has landed her in trouble time and again. Only Braita’s quick wit has kept her from complete ruin—and her cunning to blackmail the Plumas of the east.

The Plumas of the west own Braita. She is their Soul. But when her ultimate freedom is so close she can taste it, Braita might just ‘own’ them…if her heart doesn’t get in the way.

Or, perhaps, Braita should have followed her heart from the start—to one set of Plumas who are her perfect match.
Will Braita obtain her freedom? Or will she finally accept a life she never asked for?

Review:

Five novellas later and I am still in love with every character! I don’t even know what else to say, I r eally loved this series of novellas. Briata is as awesome as ever. I loved her assertion to her freedom, despite the ways everything seems to be working against it. I’m so sad to be saying goodbye to such an awesome character! The plumas are great- though I won’t spoil it by saying which ones – I will say the heat is turned up in Soar and man oh man, it does not leave a girl disappointed. There is a bit of action, fighting (duh! These are the Mian we’re talking about), and, of course, some laughs – would it be Scarlett Dawn if we didn’t laugh? I will say there are times it felt a little rushed. I found myself wishing it was longer because though everything tied together, it did so in a manner that just kind of brushed over things instead of taking the time to really explore them. Because of that, I found myself a little disappointed. I wanted more detail, more explanation… more. When it ended, I simply wasn’t ready to let go. Even though I wasn’t ready to say goodbye, Soar was a wonderful end to the Cold Mark Saga.

THE RETURN Synopsis: The Fates are cackling their bony asses off… It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet. Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her. But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all. Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
