The Book of Life”The Book of Life” is the 3rd installment of ‘All Souls Trilogy’, I was waiting to read this final book from a long time. Finally when I read it I was totally shocked! What a epic let down! The discovery of witches was one of my favorite reads from 2011 and from there I kept following this trilogy. Second book was also pretty successful read for me. My expectations were sky high for the 3rd one and now I am disappointed.

After traveling through time in the second book historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont are back to present. But this time they are not alone, Diana is pregnant with Mathew’s babies and twin miracle is on the way. But  missing pages from Ashmole 782 is still a priority, and when this couple will find out the missing pages its going to get ugly. Mathew’s blood thirsty son is hunting for Diana, no one is safe anymore.

My rating: 2 out of 5. There were so many characters and boring stuff everywhere, which was hard to follow and remember. Mathew and Diana were no more young lovers in love they were more like an old couple who over reacted to everything. Finally All souls trilogy ends here and I successfully completed another series.

Girl of Nightmares”Girl of Nightmares” is the second book in Anna Du- logy. I loved the first book, ”Anna Dressed in Blood” I thought it was clever, spooky and funny with interesting characters. I loved the fresh concept of ghost and ghost hunter being in love. I was eagerly waiting to get my hands on the second installment and finally here I am reviewing it.

Anna sacrificed herself to save Cas Lowood, he hoped that she would get her peace. But poor Anna is still a lost soul, and Cas is haunted by her tortured painful face everywhere. The evil soul who killed his father and took away Anna is still in control of her soul. Cas must find a way to get there and help Anna at any cost. Its Cas’s turn to save her, but in this journey to save Anna he find’s out a lot more than he would have wanted.

My rating: 4 out of 5. This series was one of the best paranormal series I have read so far. Excellent imagination and brilliant story, there is nothing to get bored about this book. I highly recommend this series to paranormal fiction fans. Other than the fact that there was not much of Anna in this book everything else was likable.

Out for Blood ”Out for Blood” is the 3rd installment in Drake Chronicles, a unique vampire series.I am not thrilled with this series, I liked the first book but then I kind of lost interest. It follows the same pattern in every book, Drake brothers and their forbidden love. I wish there was better character development for the main characters. Drake brothers are bad ass- handsome vampires but they fall for different kind. First one fell for a human, second for a hound princess and the third brother for vampire hunter. The whole bombardment of different and unique words to this story is making it annoying at times.

Hunter Wild comes from an ancient vampire hunter family. She is studying at the secret Helios-Ra Academy, where she is going through last year of training. Quinn is one of the Drake Bothers who is handsome but player. Hunter can’t fall for him going against entire league of vampire hunters and more than anything against her grand father who believes that vampires exists to be killed. There is an evil plan going on against the vampire hunters at school. What is the danger lurking in the school building? Will she keep her heart in control and away from Quinn?

My rating: 2 out of 5. It is nothing to do with the book, I was kind of bored with the plot and underdeveloped characters. But I am definitely going to read the remaining books as  have challenged myself to read the entire series! sounds crazy but true 🙂

Last Sacrifice”Last Sacrifice” is the final installment in Vampire Academy series. Rose is the number one reason that this series has lost its appeal to me. I liked the first few books in the series, but then Rose changed completely and I couldn’t bring myself to like this book. I found her to be egotistical, selfish,  impulsive and insensitive. I have finally finished the series and I deserve a meddle now.

When I first started the series the unique concept of vampire politics and the the whole Strigoi – Moroi thing seemed worthwhile. But then the last two books were basically centered around Rose and her undying love for Dmitri which really annoyed me. She had Adrian who was better person than Dmitri and she still wanted to play with his feelings by hurting him and drooling all over Dmitri. I don’t understand why girls always fall for jerks in the vampire novels. Like Jacob in Twilight here Adrian was rejected. I felt sad for him and hated Rose for using him.

Rose is a victim of foul play, she is getting punished for the crime she never committed. She has to find the another surviving Dragomir, Lisa’s half sister so that Lisa can get voting rights and Rose can free herself from the crime she never committed. But for that she has to run away from the prison. Will she succeed in this adventure of finding another Dragomir? Will she be able to prove her innocence in the murder of vampire queen? Who is playing these games and what do they want?

I am not happy with how the story ended. I liked Lisa a lot better than Rose and at the end both proved to be selfish. My rating: 2 out of 5. I read this just becuase I wanted to complete and get a closure to this series.

ONYXOnyx is the second installment in YA series-Lux. It was not a bad book but still I felt a bit disappointed. It had somewhat same story line as the first book but this time with a tangy twist. I loved the main characters and their chemistry was amazing. Other than the main characters there was nothing to focus on the story. Only in the last half of the story important things started to unfold.

After the dramatic twist from the first book thanks to Daemon’s alien powers Katy has this strong connection with him. But Daemon tries to prove that the feeling between them is real not just becuase some alien mojo. Where Katy is trying to keep away from him, he is determined to prove is feelings. There is this new boy in school who is interested in Katy. Will this new boy can take away her mind from her hot alien? There seems to be bigger problem than this, there are some secrets to reveal and fights to face. Trust is hard to come when there is someone very close is involved.

My rating: 3 out of 5. This book is kind of my guilty pleasure I am definitely going to read the rest of the books in this series.

pretty when she destroysAt last, here I am reviewing the final installment of ”Pretty when she dies” series. It was really an exciting and powerful journey through the world of vampires and their special abilities. This series caught my attention from the beginning, becuase there was a unique story line to it. Other than usual blood sucking vampires there were vampires with different abilities like Necromancy and waking the dead.

The Summoner’s power did not diminish with his death, he is planing to bring the end to the world by bringing endless night. Where vampires can rule by feasting on mortals. But  Amaliya and her gang is ready to fight till the end to stop him. Now that Samantha knows her powers and can use it along with Amaliya, Summoner has a new problem to face. But will this be enough to defeat him? Will she be able to fight him, when she is still feeling attracted to him?

It was a good  read, and I recommend this to vampire fiction fans. My rating: 3 out of 5.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea I’m kind of torn with this book. I am utterly uncertain about how I feel for this book. Did I love it or did I hate it? I really don’t know. Set up and atmosphere gets 5 stars but mystery and romance is what I didn’t quite buy as much as I wanted to.

Violets parents have been in Paris for months now. They are off exhibiting their paintings there, leaving Violet with her brother Luke. When they run out of money violet decides to rent out the guesthouse and a teenager named River West comes to live in their guesthouse. But strange things begin to happen around and their small town is in chaos. Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark haired sexy teenager for whom violet will fall for.

I liked the story, it was really creepy and for some odd reasons I like creepy stories. If you are looking for a good paranormal mystery with a little Gothic touch then this is perfect choice. My rating: 3 out of 5.
