I know, I know. It’s been a while. Some of you might even see this pop up in your email and think ‘what the hell is Anyonething?’ I may not have been posting much, but I have been reading, so you can expect a few more reviews.
The first of which is Kelley Armstrong’s collaboration with Melissa Marr. You all know I love Armstrong’s books, she’s a very strong writer and usually comes equipped with very strong characters. You might also remember I love mythology, so immediately I thought this would be a brilliant combination….I even said so on Goodreads. Unfortunately it proved to be disappointing. Continue reading
‘Anything you thought you knew about our world? Forget it. Someone has tossed out the rulebook. Ghosts can cross the divide. Hell-hounds can manifest. Demi-demons can possess living children…It’s not going to get any better until it’s over’
It’s over. I mean 13 books and a whole load of short stories and it’s done. The Women of the Otherworld have averted disaster for a whole decade and now we shall see no more of them, or at least not as much as we’re used to. And the best part? well that’s easy. It saw Kelley Armstrong return to her best. Continue reading
A major improvement on it predecessor Spell Bound sees Savannah return, powerless but more mature than ever before. it is also the first time in which the entire supernatural world has been threatened.
It’s fast-paced, over flowing with danger and the mystery becomes deeper and deeper. without her powers Savannah has no idea who she is. Continue reading
Waking the Witch is Savannah Levine’s first appearance as a narrator and to be perfectly honest it was underwhelming. She’s the daughter of a sorcerer and a black witch (who also happens to be half demon) and this combination, along with her memorable appearances throughout the series, has made her a very promising character. She could blow us away with her wit, capture our hearts by missing her deceased mother, wow us with her raw magical powers and impress us with her intelligence and how she’s a great female lead. Continue reading
As you can tell from the title, Frostbitten, this is another Elena book. I actually found this quite clever, it’s almost as if it has come full circle. From Bitten to Frostbitten Elena has been entertaining us and it makes a statement too, one that I wanted to ignore.
This is the last Elena book. Her story is now complete, and to be perfectly honest after reading through it you can see why.
By the time this book came out I had read The Summoning and enjoyed the fact that Armstrong was crossing over the Darkest Powers trilogy with Frostbitten, although it’s not directly done. Continue reading
Living With the Dead does indeed introduce us to a new narrator but what special powers does Robyn Peltier have? Is she one of those aloof vampires? Perhaps she’s another half-demon? Or she could be a witch like Paige or maybe a necromancer? A clairvoyant?
Well, actually it’s none of the above. Continue reading
Personal Demon sees Hope adams, the chaos-demon who worked with Jaime in the previous novel, basking in her own adventure. She’s a tabloid journalist (luckily being in Miami she’s not going to be called to the Leveson Inquiry anytime soon) who struggles with her fondness for chaos….although that might be the demon part of her.
It’s a hit she needs like a drug addict needs crack yet she’s determined to use her twisted powers for good. Most of the time she helps out the interracial council (the council made of different supernatural leaders in order to keep everyone in order), but when Benicio Cortez (Lucas’ mischievous father) dangles a juicy chaos-tasting morsel in front of her she cannot resist. Continue reading
A new book brings along a new narrator. Although this is the first time Jaime Vegas plays th le of main character she has cropped up in past books. Despite coming across as a bit of a clutz and tending to be more like Paige than Elena or Eve, she grows to be quite loveable.
Somehow she’s managed to grow quite close to the pack (who really aren’t known for their love of strangers) as well as to Savannah. However this time round Jamie has to depend on her own wits to survive the adventures ahead. Continue reading
Yay, Elena is back!
It doesn’t matter how amazing Paige and Eve were there is just no replacing the awesomeness that is the unique, witty werewolf and her socially inept and clueless partner.
Yet this time forget rogue werewolves and humans that think they can harness the supernatural for their own gain. This time Elena, Clay and the rest of the pack have to deal with Jack the Ripper.
Elena is asked to steal Ripper’s ‘From Hell’ letter from a guy who stole it from the British Police files, yet in doing so the feisty she-wolf unwittingly opens a portal to Victorian London. Continue reading
