Title: Scent of Magic Author: Maria V. Snyder Publisher: Harlequin Mira Publication Date: December 2012 Genre: Young Adult Fiction/Fantasy Series or Stand Alone: Series, Book TwoSynopsis can be found here.NetGalley review. Review: This review will contain spoilers from book one so be warned! On the run, and happily under the radar, Avry has a new mission. She must find her sister Noelle, help save the kingdoms from Tohon and place herself in greater danger than she’s ever known. I don’t want to give away too much but let’s just say it’s such a great read. Full of twists and turns, I followed Avry and Kerrick closely, each on their own path. No one is safe and our main characters face dangers like they have never seen, including Tohon’s army of walking dead, and the threat that he will make everyone into them. The book moves fast, even faster than book one. So much so I had to re-read certain parts. There’s pain, grief, love and betrayal. The ending is full of surprises, good and bad. And what a cliffhanger! My only nudge was the constant back and forth between Kerrick and Avry. Avry’s story is still in first person narrative, and Kerrick’s storyline is told in third person. It was a bit jarring going back and forth. I understand why we saw both story lines, and Kerrick and Avry...Read More

Title: Blood Prophecy Author: Alyxandra Harvey Publisher: Walker Children’s Publication Date: January 2013 Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Series or Stand Alone: Series, Book Six Synopsis can be found here.NetGalley review. Review: It’s come down to this. Sister against brother. Best friends against each other. Solange is officially Queen, and that may be the most dangerous thing to happen to the vampires ever. She’s slowly being possessed by Viola, and Viola’s motives are unclear except for one thing: get Solange’s spirit out of the picture as quickly as possible. Everyone is back and a thrilling conclusion to this much loved series. I love Lucy, and as always, she is just looking to get into trouble. Nicholas goes through a huge ordeal and I don’t want to give anything away but it is chilling. But this is really Solange’s book. She has to figure out who she is, what she wants, and if she’s strong enough to fight off Viola who has been waiting to make her move since Solange became a vampire. I have to say, Solange may be my least favorite main character in the series, up until this book. She’s a little whiny for me, especially next to Lucy is so kick ass. But the ending really endears Solange to me and makes me think her and Kieran may make it after all. Lucy- kick ass. No more...Read More
Title: The Dead and Buried Author: Kim Harrington Publisher: Scholastic Publication Date: January 2013 Genre: Young Adult Ghost Story/Paranormal Series or Stand Alone: Stand AloneSynopsis can be found here.NetGalley review: Review: Jade loves her new house, her big, beautiful and spacious new house. She is excited to start her new school, make new friends. But all of that is wiped away from mysterious things start happening in her new house. When she finds out a girl her age died in her house the year before, Jade has a sneaking suspicion her house may be haunted. And it’s confirmed in the most terrifying way.Her ghost was killed and wants to know who killed her. Now Jade must do everything she can to find the killer. A killer who goes to her school. A killer who may kill again. Harrington’s books are always fun for me. Creepy, sending a light shiver up the spine, I usually sit for hours inhaling the stories she writes. This is no exception. Jade is a typical teenager who finds herself in a very dangerous position. I love her relationship to her half brother. It’s obvious why Jade is fighting for him and why she loves him so much. I really enjoy her relationship to her step mother too. It’s strained to say the least, but with all of Harrington’s characters, there’s more than meets the...Read More
