The story:

Nastasya has spent the last century living as a spoiled, drugged-out party girl. She feels nothing and cares for no one. But when she witnesses her best friend, a Dark Immortal, torture a human, she realizes something’s got to change. She seeks refuge at a rehab for wayward immortals, where she meets the gorgeous, undeniably sexy Reyn, who seems inexplicably linked to her past.
Nastasya finally begins to deal with life, and even feels safe–until the night she learns that someone wants her dead.
Cate Tiernan, author of the popular Sweep series, returns with an engaging story of a timeless struggle and inescapable romance, the first book in a stunning new fantasy trilogy.

The view of a book addict:


At first I didn’t know what to think about this book, because this story is so different from the Wicca series. The main character of this book isn’t someone I would be friends with at least not the girl in the beginning. She is a spoiled rich kid, but as the story goes on I got a bit more sympathy for her.
I loved the way this story has been told, you get to know the person as well as her past. The way the book is written you get the feeling that you’re living the life of the main character and I love that way of storytelling.


The verdict of a book addict:

A great book, that you just can’t put down. For me Cate Tiernan did it again, she made a great world were secretly you would like to live in.

Review: Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead

Demons, Supernatural

The story:


Some days, a girl just can’t catch a break … especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there’s her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It’s not just that they can’t have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth’s obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina’s under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block. 

Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused-especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge-rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again

The view of a book addict:


I’ve loved this series from the first book, at the beginning I was afraid there would be to0 much steamy scenes in the book because the main character is a succubus. It turned out that this wasn’t the case. I love the main character, she is a strong women but she has a breakable side also.
The story just sucked me in from the first page, just like the other two books. What speaks to me in these books is that they keep me guessing until the end, just like the main character. It’s not that you know from page one what’s going on and that makes a great book if you ask me.
It’s also fun to read about all the other characters you came to know about and meeting new ones of course.



The verdict of a book addict:

Great third book in a series I really want to know what’s in store next for Georgina and her friends.

Review: The demon trappers: Forbidden by Jana Oliver

The story:


Riley’s beginning to think being a demon trapper isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Her dad’s been stolen by a necromancer, her boyfriend’s gone all weird and she’s getting warm and fuzzy feelings for someone who’s seriously bad news. It’s tempting to give it all up and try to be normal, but that’s not an option. Because the demons have plans for Riley. And they’re not the only ones

The view of a book addict:
I didn’t see the ending of this book coming and that’s just what made this book so good. When you read a lot there comes a point where you just know what’s going to happen next, but this book surprised me.
Just like the first book I loved the characters in this one, the old ones and the new ones. They all bring something to the story and they all keep you guessing about their motives. I really like Riley she is one of my favorite characters in a book. I can’t wait to read what’s going to happen next.


The verdict of a book addict:

What a great second book in a series, I can’t wait to read more about Riley and the others.
