Jennifer Armentrout has become one of my favorite on the young adult genre and I decided to try her new adult series. She put two things that I really love together: New Orleans and Fey. So I was really anxious to start this one, but the book was not perfect and it took me a long time to connect with Ivy and the story.

I wanted to love this book so much, but the secrets and the way everyone treated Ivy was extremely bad. It felt sometimes like I was reading a spin-off from Julie Kagawa Iron's Prince series.

Taking in consideration this was only the first book in this series I will give it a try on the next one, but the pace had to improve because it felt like things never happened. But I loved Tink!!

Angels are falling from the sky in New York, struck down by a vicious, unknown force.
Vampires are dying impossibly of disease.
Guild hunter Elena Deveraux and the Archangel Raphael must discover the source of the wave of death before it engulfs their city and their people, leaving New York a ruin and Raphael’s Tower under siege by enemy archangels.
Yet even as they fight desperately to save the city, an even darker force is stirring, its chill eyes trained on New York…and on Raphael. Rivers of crimson and nightmares given flesh, the world will never again be the same…

And we are back to Elena and Raphael, but the danger is higher than ever because someone is attacking Manhattan and during the Cascade it could literally be anyone. So Elena is off to discover clues and try to stop the attack before it becomes worst. So because of the Cascade is bringing all strange appearings it's difficult to connect the attack to one archangel. We can see some different things happening to Raphael too and I liked the way we see how much his relationship with Elean grounded him and made him more powerfull and human. These archagels sometimes forget that too mcuh power can be really overwelming and they get lost to madess. 

I also liked to see how Elena is step by step leanring more about her position as Consort and making all the right decisions. Plus Aodhan is back in New York and for the first time we get to see him more humanne, but somthing on his past really messed up. The Guild Hunter helped a lot in this big battle and we got to see more of Ramson.

I really liked the way Ms. Jessica Clare made the introductions of the six bachelors for this series. We started this book with Logan checking the new hotel and getting trapped during a hurricane with Bronte. The island adventure was fun and free of problens, but when Bronte found out that Logan was actually a billionaire and not a simple manager like he said.

I think the real life was the most difficult thing for this couple to understand, because Bronte wanted more from life and not just to stay home waiting and Logan was a little afriad of his feelings because he had suffered before and was trying to keep things simple.

But I liked the way Bronte made things change for herself and found the reasons for the change in her life. Really liked how they managed to find a middle term in the end.

Not my favorite bok for one reason: the wedding. Ellie was so strong and sure about her life that I simply did not understood with she made Alek marry her for the baby. I think they would make a nice couple falling in love during the pregnancy, but without the drama about getting married just because she got knocked up. Could be a better story if these two had chosen to wait before jumping into bed and continuing with the mistakes.

Not my fave from this line.

This was a super cute story, but the sheikh for me made everything perfect. He had a very trying life and it's raising alone his son after the woman he married died, he was never in love and his life was not all that people think, but I liked that the author choose to make him a normal guy with needs and a very good family.

The shy english teacher was a nice touch. I konw people love the virgin heroines, but to me it's a bit old and completely unnecesary, but Fern was a cute girl and very sweet, this couple deserving the happy ending and I liked that Sheikh Zafir is more regular guy than dictator.

This was a really book to start a new series. I liked getting to know more about Rocco and how he managed to discover the real Olivia. She's was a very sweet girl and just needed a new start to her carrear. I liked the way she started the change and how she kept truth to herself during all the drama Rocco created.

This was a cute romance and I can't wait for the rest of the guys to fall in love too.

Archangel's Storm by Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #5
Published September 4th 2012 by Berkley
Format: ebook
Length: 337 pages
Source: Bought
With wings of midnight and an affinity for shadows, Jason courts darkness. But now, with the Archangel Neha’s consort lying murdered in the jewel-studded palace that was his prison and her rage threatening cataclysmic devastation, Jason steps into the light, knowing he must unearth the murderer before it is too late.
Earning Neha’s trust comes at a price—Jason must tie himself to her bloodline through the Princess Mahiya, a woman with secrets so dangerous, she trusts no one. Least of all an enemy spymaster.
With only their relentless hunt for a violent, intelligent killer to unite them, Jason and Mahiya embark on a quest that leads to a centuries-old nightmare… and to the dark storm of an unexpected passion that threatens to drench them both in blood.

Another different story but we also get the sense of how much this world is changing. Loved to see this Jason more free. He's still more quiet and very dark, but we can discover more about the reasons for the way he hides and the story about his parents was so heartbreaking to me.

Mahiya was a surprise for me because I expected someone more dangerous but she turned out to be super savvy and can definitely be lethal when her life is in dangerous, because she heard several times about the story of her life and Neha is someone you can't trust.

I liked this different story, because when get a more clearer idea about the way other archangels treat their places. Neha is clearly about the fear and has no problem showing everyone how she'll make them suffer. Mahiya is the bastard daughter of Neha's sister and everyone is polite with her but she has no true friend, because is pretty clear they are more afraid than anything.

I liked the almost relatioship between Jason and Mahiya, because we can see they need more time to understand their place in this new world and overcome the dark places on their souls.

I wanted to like more of this book, but the way everyone treated Mercy just because Adam ex-wife returned was absolutely ridiculus. Mercy has proved more times than necessary how she's always jumping and helping those in need. But the werewolves simply decided to forget and treated her like Nemesis. So not cool.

The supernatural part was actually different and I liked this new development. Adam could have treated the situation better and I think half of this was his fault, but he did pretty good against the crazy stalker.

What impressed me was Jesse always seeing the right picture, she never tried to compare Mercy against her mother and even understood all the drama. She was the best on this book. Ben surprised me too and decided to stay on Mercy side. Gary was a big news and I liked this new guy.
Archangel's Blade by Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #4
Published September 6th 2011 by Berkley Sensation
Format: ebook
Length: 310 pages
Source: Bought
The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.
Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.
As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more...

This book had a different story, because for the first time we didn't follow Elena and Raphael, but I still loved the romance and the adventure we can find in this plot. Dmitri is Raphael's second and now he needs the help of a Guild Hunter to understand the guide him during this new treath to New York. Honor was attacked and now is suffering because of it. She spent two months being used by some of the darkest vampires and to work with Dmitri was like her worst nightmare, but I loved seeing her rising again.

The story was more simple and the danger to me was smaller, but not even for this less horrific, because we can see that Dmitri past was dark and he suffered a lot, but now someone decided to avenge on of his kills and he must discover and stop before anyone else becomes a victim. But I loved seeing this different and softer side of Dmitri. I thought perhaps that all the centuries and the evilness he saw in the Earth had made him dark and dangerous, but we can see that in reality he just needed to be awake for the right person and Honor was the answer.

The different plot took even a more strange path when we saw Dmitri decided to discover the responsible for Honor abduction and for me this was the best part of the book.

I finished several romances this week. The bliss was great and now I want something different because I'm a moody reader and for the moment I want some paranormal or anything just different. Found the perfect choice for me last night: Shifting Shadows from Patricia Briggs. An anthology of short stories from the world of Mercy Thompson, so nothing too romanctic and plenty to choose from.

This book had a very different plot and it's amazing how every single time we see Mercy is used by the other supernaturals. This time she did everything possible to save Adam after he was kidnapped. It's different seeing this Mercy more like an adult, taking care of Jesse and trying to stay out of drama.

It was a little difficult for me to discover the real bad guys, but once everything was set in motion we see Adam and Mercy trying once again save the supernaturals from creating a new war.

I really liked this new Mercy and this story happened super fast, but it was fun.
