Reviews & Recommendations
"With Grace" was an absolute yummy, read. Philip and Mark have definitely been added to the 'book-boyfriend-list'. Also, the author, Samantha Wayland, has a wonderful way with shifting the point of view, so each character, within the triad, has a clear voice the reader can follow. More importantly, the reader wants to keep turning the page.
Also, check out "Destiny Calls" by Samantha Wayland. The story was just as sexy and thrilling, as "With Grace."
The fantastic, Samantha Wayland has also made her way onto my top ten list of authors 'to read'.
Angelfall (PENRYN & THE END OF DAYS, #1) & World After (PENRYN & THE END OF DAYS, #2) by Susan Ee
These books surprised me, and the dystopian world created within this series was well built. The way the setting was used to maneuver the characters around this world was handled with finesse and fascination. The plot was fast paced, and the protagonist, Penryn, as well as, the other lead character, Raffe, had wonderful character arcs.
I didn't want the story to end, so I finished the second book in the trilogy, World After, twenty four hours after I finished Angel Fall. These books would be excellent gifts for young and old readers who like YA fantasy with a supernatural twist.
Looking forward to the final installment to this tale.
ECSTASY, RAPTURE, AND PLEASURE (SHADOWDWELLERS SERIES) BY: JACQUELYN FRANK
The "Shadowdwellers" world, created by Jacquelyn Frank, I will return to time and time, again. This is a world that fascinates me, endlessly, and a world that I wouldn't mind visiting, in real life. I think I've re-read this series four or five times. My favorite part about Ms. Frank's "Shadowdwellers Series" is the unique view she presents about different dimensions--mis-understood worlds/populations of people, who hide because they are afraid of persecution. Moreover, the world she creates is well-rounded, believable, and sexy. In addition, through this world, she challenges some of the real world problems without being preachy, or distracting from the fun fantasy ride she has crafted. If you have not read, Jacquelyn Frank's "Shadowdwellers" Series, yet, you are missing out. (Ms. Frank, I think Trace and Guin will forever be a couple of my book boyfriends.)
If you haven't read Jacquelyn Frank yet, you are missing out.
