Review: Seduced by Moonlight

Seduced by Moonlight Seduced by Moonlight by Laurell K. Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Im not a political person and have no interest in it. However reading this was quite interesting. The author has created a fae court and the politics that goes with it. How can you not be interested.
This books has a bit of everything in it. Violence , sex(lots and lots of it), mystery, and magic... lots and lots of magic.
Merry is proving to be the leader she was never supposed to be.

Review: A Caress of Twilight

A Caress of Twilight A Caress of Twilight by Laurell K. Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yep i still feel the same about the series as i did when i first read them.
I love it.
Not for everyones taste.
It's the continuing story of Merry Gentry and her struggles to stay alive. have heaps of sex with whoever reacts to her magic ring. and try to get pregnant.
It is so much more than that. you have merry Bringing people into their powers. yes there is a fair bit of violence, and i would not reccomend these books to someone with a weak stomach.
But the continuing Saga of poor Princess meredith, you slowly grow to care for what happens to her and her men.

Review: A Kiss of Shadows

A Kiss of Shadows A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This one is not for the weak stomached. Blood and Guts may be too squeamish for some.
you have violence and sex mainly in this book.
Now if you have ever read the Anita Blake series (also by laurell).
you will find a similar theme(the sex and the string of men). But this Semi Erotic Urban Fantasy i think gives Anita a run for her money.
You are introduced to the Sidhe kingdoms, the seelie, Unseelie and the Slaugh, the goblins. tbut the esslie and the Unseelie are the main rulers (after all everything has to have an opposite!)
Magic Features heavily and in this book our poor merry, comes into her "hand of power"...not a pretty thing either.
I love this book not only because it is so different from the Anita series but it gives you a different outlook on the fey.
so if your after a break in the vampires. look no further than the Merry Gentry Series.

Review: Full Moon Rising

Full Moon Rising Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

as introduction to a series goes... its pretty perfect.
it leaves you wanting more. more of the characters, more of the adventure, more of the mystery.
don't get me wrong it isn't a cliffhanger book (i hate those). but it introduces you to the characters perfectly. it sets up a possible romance. you want to find out more about the ever mysterious quinn. you want to know what else can happen to Riley. i can't give too much away. but i will warn you it has violence and sex themes that some people may find disturbing.

Review: Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well a few years have passed since i had last read this. And my opinions haven't changed. My Review (i feel) is still relevant, So please enjoy my previous review.

Original Review
so so different from true blood.
first difference.. no tara, and that is a big difference
no "V" drug culture
story is centered around sookie, and sookie only.

There are a few more differences.
but i'm not going to list them because they don't matter...
i mean... how boring would it be if it was straight from the book.

i'm happy at the way they have done it.
the TV series would be boring, not that the book is.

No it's far from boring.

Sookie is a waitress, working in the Bon Temps very own Merlottes Bar. owned by Sam merlotte.
Sookie has a disability(as she sees it)
until she meets bill the vampire. only then does she learn what a gift she has.

there have been a couple of murders and both bill and sookies brother Jason get the blame.
and its up to sookie to discover the real culprit.

This story sucks you in from the start (if you pardon the pun).
you find yourself loving her but sometimes you scratch your head with her (yes it has WTF moments).

its almost May its Time to Vote for the May BOM.
Click on the book you want to read as a group next month. if for any reason you wish to change your vote. click the change your vote link at the bottom of the poll just before the comments.
As you may all know I run a group on Goodreads called Fantasy and Vampire Book Club. affectionately known as the FVBC. I have been with the group for a while. As the main moderator my job is to promote it as well as help keep things running. also from time to time on my twitter account you will see a link to vote on the BOM( book of the month). it's my baby. it is now getting run by one of my co mods. a lovely lady named Norma. she is awesome. it has been a bit of a hit and miss finding a mod but when Norma stepped up it was just so easy and natural just to let her handle things.

anyway the main reason I'm posting today is a trial of something new for my group as well as my blog.
I post up the poll for the BOM and we are able to post up a widget of sorts on my blog. I thought why not. so I thought I'd warn you all first before I go ahead and do it.
so here goes... I'm not game enough to put it at the end of this post so i'll do another post for it.
my blog won't know what hit it... two in one day!
Happy Reading
