Review: Demonized by Naomi Clark

Published 29/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Demonized
Author:          Naomi Clark
Pages:            96 (on my e-reader)
Catagory:      Paranormal

The story:

PI Ethan Banning is smoking too much, sleeping too little, and hearing voices. One voice, to be exact: the voice of the demon that possessed him on his last case. A voice that urges him to hurt, rape, kill, and Ethan doesn’t think he has the strength to ignore it much longer. 

When his latest missing person case turns into a murder investigation, Ethan finds himself fighting not just demonic urges, but black magic, an incubus with a hidden agenda, and a client who just won’t pay up. Luckily, Ethan’s got a few friends on his side, like Detective Anna Radcliffe, and his trusty dog, Mutt. If Ethan can ignore the demon long enough, he might just solve this case before it kills him

The view of a book addict:

I loved this novella about Ethan,the P.I we met in Afterlife. It’s really interesting to read more about this character and what happened to him after he left Shoregrave. He’s still haunted and he sturggles to deal with that.
This story is just like Afterlife, you get thrown into the action and you get to learn more about the characters in the next chapters. I love the writing style of this author, she really knows how to keep you glued to your book.

The verdict of a book addict:

Amazing novella that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait to read more from this author!

Published 29/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
It’s friday again so time to partictpate in some blog hopping fun! First of all I’m going to start with the Follow friday hosted by Parajunkee’s View.
The question this week is:

Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

– Lover Awakened
– Vampire kisses
– An apple for Zoë
– A dragon forsaken
– The Banishing
– The hunger games
– Shiver
– Last sacrifce ( Vampire Academy )
– Afterlife ( Naomi Clark )

I have to say it was hard to pick only ten books haha

And of course we can’t forget the Blog Hop, the Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
The question this week is:

“Summer is coming quickly – what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?”

The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater.

In Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. InLinger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in

Question of the week: Do you have another hobby besides reading?

Review: Afterlife by Naomi Clark

Published 29/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Afterlife
Author:           Naomi Clark
Pages:             296 ( on my e-reader )
Catagory:        Vampire Paranormal

The story:

Yasmin Stoker is a ghost tour guide who spends her days showing tourists around Shoregrave’s haunted hotspots. She also happens to be a wraith who spends her nights hunting Revenants, newly-risen flesh-eating vampires. On one of her regular hunts, she witnesses a mysterious ghostly girl pulling the body of a teenage boy underground. Who and what is this girl, and why is she attacking men around the city? Yasmin investigates, but it quickly becomes clear that somebody wants to keep her from finding the killer and they’ll do anything–including ambushing her with ghouls and cacodaemons–to stop her. 

With only a persistent private eye and a taciturn vampire (one of the Immaculate, no less) to help her, Yasmin must deal with fanatical necromancers, crazed ghosts, and a sexy history teacher in her quest to solve the mystery. And along the way she uncovers some heartbreaking truths about her own existence

The view of a book addict:

This story is beyond amazing, you get thrown right into the action. After the action the author reveals the world she created bit by bit. I loved the main character she’s someone I could be friends with.
I loved the world the author created in this book, not just the mortal world and the demon world. It has more layers and a lot of diffrent creatures.

The verdict of a book addict:

An amazing book set in a wonderful scary place. If you like a book with a lot of action like me, this is your book!

Review: Union of Renegades ( The Rys chronicles #1) by Tracy Falbe

Published 28/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Union of renegades ( The Rys chronicles # 1 )
Author:           Tracy Falbe
Pages:             338 ( on my e-reader )
Catagory:        Fantasy

The story:

The Rys Chronicles begin with this character-rich adventure that follows the travels of Dreibrand Veta, an ambitious warrior who seeks to rebuild his noble family’s fortune. He is the first to join the powerful rys spellcaster Shan, whose race possesses magical powers and whose Queen Onja rules many human kingdoms as their Goddess. The wickedness and tyranny of Onja disgust Shan and he desires to seize the rys throne from her. The third renegade is Miranda. After escaping from her abusive slave master, she becomes a crucial player in Shan’s bid for power. To weaken Onja, Shan raises rebellion among her human subjects and gathers allies to his cause. Shan demonstrates his magic in battle and convinces his followers that the fearsome rys Queen can be overthrown. For over two thousand years Onja has ruled, but now, not even fear of her ability to enslave souls will stop her ambitious enemies

The view of a book addict:

The story is really great, but I had a little trouble getting into it. I love fantasy novels, but somehow they always take a little time to grow on me. I loved the background information about the worlds the author created. They made the world easier to see while you read the book The maps looked really great even on my e-reader.
Something that spoke to me was that you just didn’t follow one character, I always like to read more point of views of a story. This story took a little time to grow on me but once it di dit wouldn’t let me go. I’m really curious about what will happen next in this series.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great fantasy book, that took me a little time to get into but evantually captured me. This book is for all the real fantasy lovers.

Wonderful series Wednesday #11

Published 27/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Series title: The forest of hands and teeth
Author: Carry Ryan
How many books are there: 3
Catagory: Zombies
What is the series about:
Goodreads summary of the first book:
In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

Wich books have I read already?
This series made me fall in love with a new creature in books: Zombies. I’ve always been a fan of the zombie movies but I just didn’t know if I would like any books about them. So this was my first meeting with zombies in literature. I loved the book from the first page to the last and I couldn’t wait to start reading the next book. So I’ve read the first two books and I’m ashamed to say that I still have to order a copy of the third book
Are there more books coming?

To be honest I don’t know the answer to this question 

Teaser Tuesday #13

Published 26/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
It’s Tuesday again so time for another Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading! Here is how it works:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
And here is my Teaser for this week:
I had all the usual trepidation I felt when approaching Nicomedes. Emma’s presence didn’t help. I  remembered our last meeting, his torn face and scratched eye sockets, and hoped he’d at least sewn himself up. As we descended the staris my sense of dread mounted.
