So I got given the chance to read Steal the sun by Stephanie Kelley.
I’d never heard of her before so was eager to give her a go, and wow! I am so glad I did!
The cover isn’t one that would usually draw me in, but they do say don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Kodiak Sesi is a hunter… not the type that hunts game… She and her brothers hunt “others” these are creatures such as vampires and werewolves but also include shifters such as selkies/mermen etc. (Have you seen Grimm? Think of wesen and how they can woge).
Intrigued? So was I!
Steal the sun follows Koda and her brothers as they hunt others and try to find out who’s been committing a series of murders around their Alaskan home.
I absolutely love this book and fell in love with it within the first sentence. Kodiak and Rhen are such powerful characters and the mystery of their back story kept me up and reading all throw the night!
I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance and fantasy as well as fans of Grimm and probably Supernatural (sorry never seen and episode!)
Definitely a 5 star read!
In the words of Oliver “Please sir can I have some more?”
If you only do one thing tonight, get your hands on a copy and read!
Have you ever heard of Rachel M Storm? I hadn’t either until a author friend of mine asked if I would like to read and review the book. Well of course I jumped at the chance as I love to discover new authors (and share them with you lot!).
Forbidden Affections is about Claudia who spends her life tracking and killing all the vampires she can find while she tracks down the King of the Vampires. And about Jake, Prince of the Vampires, who has been tasked with killing the vampire hunter.
With secrets at play and love blossoming what will happen with the pair?
I really enjoyed this book and I loved the twist on how you can kill a vampire (want to know it? go read it!) there are sex scenes in the book but not the type that make you cringe and shudder (which I must say makes a change from some books I’ve read.)
I would highly recommend this to anyone that loves vampires and paranormal romance. Fans of Jennifer L Armentrout’s “Wicked” series are sure to love this. And for just 99p/$1.28/KU you can’t really say no!
So have a read, tell me what you thought and don’t forget to leave a review for her, Remember reviews are the food of authors! Find the links below the awesome cover pic.
Happy Reading, I can’t wait to hear what you all thought about it!
So a week or so ago I started this saga, in total there are 9 books, I’ve currently read up to book 3 (Chosen) and to be honest I’m not sure if I should continue.
I love the plot of the books – vampires, werewolves, witches, a curse! But and there is a big but… It is written quite childlike. All the kisses in it are “hot” and there’s just no variation on it. I do want to see where it goes and how the series will end but I’m not sure if I can read 6 more books of “hot” kisses.
In all honesty as much as I like the series I think it could be better written if done by a different author.
You can get book 1 – Crush on Amazon so if you fancy reading it give it a go!
Here are the links:
You may see another post from me about the remaining books, you may not. I’ve not made my mind up yet and my to be read pile is growing!
For this series so far I’d give the plot 5 stars but the writing 2-3 stars. But don’t write it off, you may love it!
