Title: The Uninvited Author: Liz Jensen Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Publication Date: January 2013 Genre: Adult Fiction/Thriller Series or Stand Alone: Stand AloneSynopsis can be found here.NetGalley review. Review: Hesketh is good with patterns, numbers, thinking in a different way. He has Asperger’s Syndrome, which makes him unique. He may be the only one who can figure out why the world’s children are suddenly doing violent, deadly things to the adults. When an incident hits too close to home for him, Hesketh is racing against time to see the patterns, figure out why before it’s too late. I didn’t know what to expect reading this book. Psychological Thriller and Dystopian Nightmare rolled into one. I really like Hesketh’s voice. His narration is unique and can be very funny in his awkward observations. He sees the world around him differently and is somewhat detached, which works really well for the story. He is on the outside, he is an observer to these horrible senseless crimes. So much fear and possible explanations are rooted in folk tales, the paranormal. Can Hesketh believe? I don’t want to give too much away. The violence is harsh and cruel, but I was unable to put it down. I read through this book a lot quicker than I thought I would.And then, by the end, when you have a grasp on what is going on, what...Read More

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
