Book Review Halfway to The Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost

 

night huntress5/5 Stars

If you’ve seen my Goodreads “read” shelf, you’ll notice I have an affinity for vampire romance. Why? Not exactly sure except they are usually action packed, and drag you into a different world for a while. Here are comments on my most recent find.

You had me at “Hallo, Kitten”! This book is so action-packed and there is no “good place to stop”. Very hard to put down! The plot moves along at just the right pace. I really liked the dialog and snarky comments from the characters. Shall I say it really sucks you in? 🙂 I couldn’t resist.

Quick summary: Cat is half human and half vampire. She has dedicated her life to hunting vampires (I won’t tell you how she became a half-breed, or why she hunts them, you’ll have to read to find out). The good stuff starts when she gets tangled with one captivating Master Vamp. Her adventures, private moments, and close calls keep this story moving. I never like to write too much about the plot of stories because isn’t that why we read, to see how it unfolds?  I know, this story may sound far-fetched, but this book will grab your attention.

I’m already through book 2 and started book 3. Will add a “roundup” post when i’m through with the series. I might have to read slow because I am really enjoying these books.

Book Review of Time’s Convert

3 of 5 stars

I know, where have I been and why haven’t I posted a review in a while?  Here’s why!

I was lost in the highly anticipated follow up to the amazing All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. This book is 436 pages of somewhat dense text. Took me some time to get through! I follow Deborah on social media and the day earlier this year when she finished her book, she posted a picture of the pages all piled up with the caption “I like big books and I cannot lie”. Cracked me up.

So the All Souls Trilogy is very likely one of my top favorite reads of all time. I couldn’t wait to get back together with these characters and live in their world for a while. This book follows the story of Marcus. His story is cleverly woven into past true historical events (for example, he was there when the Liberty Bell cracked). Most of this story is in the past with a few chapters in the present. Throughout the story we get to experience what it is like to become a vampire as Marcus’ mate Phoebe decides to become immortal and spend the rest of time with him, “evermore”.

I gave this 3 stars, whereas the other books earn a 5 (I would give way more than that if it was a thing). For me it was not as exciting and action packed as the first three and at times but was nice to learn his backstory. I hope to see more of these great characters. For extra fun, A Discovery of Witches is now a TV show in England and will be coming to the US on Sundance Now. I’ll be subscribing 🙂
