My Week in Review: 4/21/18-4/28/18

I am excited to share my reads with you today, I found a fantastic new to me series and I can't wait to see where these characters are going to land once everything shakes out.  

Here we go:

Fatal Harmony by Anne Malcom - 5 Stars *****

I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.

Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it's something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.
Evil doesn’t exist.
Neither does ‘good.’
Vampires do, though.
I just happen to be one.

I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.

I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.
I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I'm in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.

Battles, I can handle.
The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?
I might not get out undead.

Haven by Brian M Switzer - 4 Stars ****

Would you kill 130 strangers to keep your family safe?

In the long, deep shafts of a Southwest Missouri limestone mine, Will Crandall's group has found a place of safety in the middle the zombie apocalypse.

The group knows what it takes to survive after almost a year on the road- a year spent fighting the dead every day.

But the people already living in the shafts, The Originals, aren't interested.They've been there for a year, living in the dark and eating and drinking what they find in the warehouses. They've never scouted. They've never scavenged.They've never posted lookouts.

Can Will sway their leader, The Judge, to see things his way? Or will the conflict lead to all-out warfare between the two sides? Can a haven really exist in a world where the dead rise up with an insatiable appetite for the living?

Dragon School by Sarah K L Wilson - 4 Stars ****

A disabled teen, an empathetic dragon, and a bond that will save the world.

Sixteen-year-old Amel arrived at Dragon School just like everyone else - with a dream to ride dragons and join the Dominion Dragon Riders.
But Amel has a crippled leg and Dragon School training is grueling. Before she can even become an initiate, she must complete her First Flight on a dragon.

Can Amel survive First Flight and become a Dragon School initiate or will her dreams dash on the rocks below?

Hidden by K H LeMoyne - 3 Stars ***

Life on the run is about to end with a sniper’s bullet or an eternal pledge of fealty. Neither suits a seasoned lion shifter.

Shifter Chisholm Barduc has kept his family safe despite the mob’s target on their back. Free from any alpha’s control as well. But his luck is running out when his teenage daughter falls victim from a local crime. And if his instincts are correct, the beautiful police officer protecting his daughter’s secret is the mate Chisholm never believed he’d find. Only she’s not buying her role in mated destiny.

Dani Leggett gets the shock of her life witnessing a teenager shifter’s first change. And while Dani has supernatural secrets in her closet, she not ready to settle down. But one sexy lion shifter and his brood do their best to turn her life upside down and get under her skin. Now she must decide between remaining true to her professional code of conduct or sacrificing everything for those she loves.

The Angel Trials by Michelle Madow - 3 Stars ***

She thought magic didn’t exist. She was so, so wrong.

Raven Danvers is a typical college student… until she’s attacked by a demon on the night of her twenty-first birthday. Luckily, she’s saved by Noah—a mysterious, sexy wolf shifter who appears and disappears before she can ask him any questions.

When Raven returns home, she discovers her mom has been abducted by the same demon who came after her. And who turns up at the scene of the crime again? Noah. He’s hunting the demons who are taking humans, and he’s ultimately heading where Raven needs to go to save her mom—the mystical island of Avalon.

Now Raven’s tagging along on Noah’s demon hunting mission whether he wants her there or not. And he makes it no secret that his journey would be a lot easier without her dragging him down. But Raven isn’t going anywhere, so she and Noah will have to learn to work together—if they don’t kill each other first.

That wraps up my week.  I hope you are reading something wonderful.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
