Wolf's Bane (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

This might very well be my favorite of the series, so far. I loved the resilience of Douglas and Jilly, ex-con and ex-hooker, who initially hooked up for convenience and definite attraction, but they ended up changing the world. I loved seeing Douglas show everyone that his 3 years in prison weren't in vain, and he learned his lesson, not to mention spent a lot of time contemplating himself, his mistakes, his choices, and what he wanted from his life. I was thrilled that they were able to find the information on the slavery ring, get Joel, Grayson, Caleb, Asher, and Darren involved to start busting the people involved, rescuing the children, and tracking down the ones already sold. I was very excited about the joining of the Wolf Council and the Council of Elders into one paranormal council, with several familiar faces taking seats to make their world a better place. Changing the world, indeed. Even better was Douglas and Jilly being allowed to adopt two of the kidnapped children who had no family. Seeing Jilly with little Isac and Rudy was freaking adorable!

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I wasn't sure how I felt about Julian and Rogan, mainly because they hadn't been referenced in either of the three previous works. I liked both of them, and certainly the pain and suffering they endured being apart was very sad, but I guess I didn't warm up to them as much. The political machinations were intriguing, although at a certain point they became far too easy to predict which I never care for. I was very happy to see Julian and Rogan end up together, plus my glimpse of a few guys from other books was nice.

Definitely one of the more enjoyable tales in these last six books. I'm inclined to believe the author is done with this series based on how this book ended. Trystan and Cailean were perfect for each other, and I particularly enjoyed seeing Trystan get the love and happiness he so deserved. I liked the fact that at the end, both Joey and Jimmy were pregnant, as that gave me a nice image of the future for this clan.

Cameron and Iver's story could have been so much better, in my opinion. I think the author dragged it on too long in these last several books, and by the time I was getting to read their tale, I was sort of tired of them. The poison thing was pretty cool, however.

I definitely liked Chris and Logan's story the best out of these new ones based on Duncan's clan. There's was more real, so to speak, and I fell just a little for Chris. He doesn't even know he's a good guy.

I really liked Maddox and Quinten. They meshed really well together, and were super hot. I liked the direction the story went in, although it was predictable. I'm hoping for more drama with Chris's story as he seems to be fairly stubborn.

Part of me is really thinking the author should have stopped with book #11 and ended the series with clan MacLeod. Not that I'm not enjoying clan McTavish, but this is just all too similar, and so far I'm not finding anything really unique. A shame, that, since I think there's a lot more that could be done. I adored Jimmy, though, and Leon was a tough exterior with a mushy center. They are adorable together and very hot.

A nice addition to the series that has taken the focus off of the McLeod clan and on to the McTavish clan in a different state. Much of this was similar to book one in the series, and I liked Joey just as much as I liked Conner. This was sexy, hot, and fun.

The Dragon and the Templar (MM) by Marcy Jacks (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.99
Categories: Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Honestly? My favorite part of this book was Cole. He's just so adorable in his innocence, and his inability to hurt anyone, not even the dragons he was trained to hate. He vomited the one and only time he had to pull a scale from a captured dragon. For his mother and brother, Cole is a giant embarrassment to them and the Templars. The fact that it was his family that led the raid on Black Mountain and Aris's clan is mortifying for Cole. Craig was a strong dragon warrior, to be expected, and I really would have enjoyed getting to know him better but the author kind of scrimped on his character a wee bit. I actually think after al the excitement and resolution that occurred in the first ten books, the author is trying to figure out where to go next. LOL

I am really loving this new series. So far, at least, it definitely has veered from the same old, same old, and introduced fascinating characters, great matings, and a nice mystery. Baxter and Dom are great together. Bailey and Vey had their three little kits - yay! Looks like Sal's fortune given to him by a seer when he was a young boy has come true as Sal is, indeed, the mate to vampire Alberto Montello. And, bunny brother, Beau, seems to not be happy at the prospect of being vampire Prince Dario Montello's mate. Oh, and the mansion they've been hiding out in that they thought was abandoned, is owned by the prince. Yep, things are getting more and more interesting. I can't wait to find out the whole deal about the baby, the duck, and Clay.

I definitely enjoyed this finale in the series, although I'm a little upset that the author didn't write Tameron and Marshall's story. Owen and Peter were great, and I loved the introduction of the four ancient wolves who will star in the 'Werewolves of Willow Lake' series.

This second book in the series was equally fun and hot. Hotter, actually, as it involved three men vs two. Another good brain candy story which is exactly what I needed. No thinking required, just pure fun, at least for me.

Fun, sweet, hot, etc. etc. etc. is what you can say about this first book in Stormy Glenn's series True Blood Mate. I like shifter stories and I do like a little bratty bottom although Darren wasn't too bratty, unfortunately. All in all a fun and enjoyable read.

I really liked Rabbit and Benjie. I was a little disappointed that the author is reverting back to the tried and true formulas after she had such fun with the time travel, etc. I was hoping for a different couple to be represented here based on how book 16 ended, and I sure hope the author plans on finishing that storyline. Anyway, this was good and now I'm going to jump into the last (at this time) book of the Luna Werewolves.

Another good addition to the series. I liked that Derek was more of a beta than an omega, at least in personality. He didn't take crap from anyone! Jake was a good guy, and now after that ending, Brandon the new leader of Lawrence's pack, is out Jake and six more alphas who've joined Roarke's pack. Love it.

Definitely my favorite story since the very early ones. Kyle was a spitfire and I adored him. Colt was hot, and everything you'd want in a mate. The fact that both of them were new to being werewolves just made it all the sweeter with the information they didn't have or didn't know about. So, so, so, glad that Lawrence, that horrible creature, is DEAD! Yay!!

I liked the difference of this story from the rest in the series. Alex and Bellamy were great characters, and I especially liked Bellamy for his humor and easy way of accepting things. Alex was sweet with his fear and vulnerabilities. I particularly liked it that they got refuge with Roarke's pack. Looking forward to more adventures.

So freaking adorable. Rory is the cutest thing and Allen was so sweet and gentle. I'm sorry Allen wasn't able to kill off Bud and his entire pack, but he sure put a dent in them. Looking forward to more.

I definitely liked the way the author handled Leo and Bastion. Granted, the whole time travel paradox is, well, not addressed really at all, but I can live with it in order to get what I call my "brain candy". Again, the sex was super hot, but the emotional parts between Westley and Roarke, plus Ash and David really made this book stand out for me.

Yes, the excitement is getting better. Eli found his mate, also 30 years in the past, and unlike Leo he didn't resist the mating and choosing to stay with John. The author is taking some serious liberties with the concepts of time travel, since Leo (or as the pack thinks of him Leon) can stand right next to himself, Westley's son Leo and nothing goes awry. The same that Eli can be right next to David, his bearer father, and his past self is still in the womb and nothing goes wonky. Huh. Serious liberties. Doesn't mean it's not been entertaining, though.

I definitely liked Zack and Brian in this installment. I liked the way they met, and how it all worked out. Again, I'm fascinated by what's going on with Leon and Eli, although Bastion is breaking my heart. I can't wait to see how the author plans on resolving this giant conundrum.

I was not expecting the author ( in the middle of the book) to veer into a very interesting new plot point. I'm not saying what it is, but to be honest, the appearance of Leon and Elias made this story so much better than it would have been. Not that I didn't like these main characters - I did.....but, I've been waiting for something new to happen!

I worried that a series by the name of 'Battle Bunnies' might be written a little hokey, but Stormy Glenn and Bellann Summers didn't disappoint. This was a wonderful beginning to a new series and I'm definitely looking forward to more. Bailey is a wonderful main character, as is Vey, although I'm not telling what kind of paranormal Vey is. You'll need to read the book to find out. All of the brothers are unique and I'm excited about each of their future stories. I'm most curious about Barclay and the duck. What's up with that? LOL

Another fun addition to what is slowly becoming a very entertaining series. Matt was adorable, of course, and Sam and Joe were hot, naturally! This installment had a little action/adventure (much like book 1) with someone trying to kill Matt. So, these are fairly formulaic, to date, but I enjoy them anyway! I'm looking forward to the next book which should feature Chandler with Noah and Moses.
