Cover reveal for: Moonlight ( The Moon Series ) by Lisa Kessler

Published 29/04/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Hello everyone, I just wanted to share this gorgeous cover and blurb from Moonlight by Lisa Kessler:

 

And here is the blurb:

Rancher Adam Sloan is more than meets the eye. As the heir to his Pack, the sexy werewolf’s biggest challenge is keeping his kin’s true nature under wraps. But a group of jaguar shifters threatens to reveal the pack, blasting into town killing humans in plain sight. And when he smells one at the local diner, his standing orders are to take her out.

Lana Turpin doesn’t realize she’s a moving target. Raised in the foster system, she only knows that she blacks out during the new moon and wakes up without remembering a thing. But now she’s being tracked by some strange organization that wants her back—even though she’s never stepped foot inside their compound. And the stranger across the diner is watching her like an enemy.

It should be a simple mission for Adam, but when he touches the frustratingly beautiful Lana, his inner wolf howls…mate. Now, the two must find and stop the people who hunt her…and Adam must keep his own family from killing the only woman he will ever love.

Review: Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Published 22/04/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Beautiful Chaos         
Author:             Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Pages:                 517
category:          Young Adult

The story:

Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena’s Claiming. Even Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals is affected – and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What — or who — will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He’s being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn’t by Lena – and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself — forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn’t know why, and most days he’s too afraid to ask.

Sometimes there isn’t just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there’s no going back. And this time there won’t be a happy ending

The view of a book addict:

It took me some time to start reading the third book in this series. After reading the second one I just knew that I had to wait a little to read the third one.  But I did really like it, I had a little trouble getting into the story because I had to think about what happened in the last two. But after watching the movie Beautifil Creatures I just knew that I had to read the other books.

The only thing that made reading this one diffrent is that you now have faces to go with the characters. I can’t read the book and not see the actors that played in the movie. But after I got into it again it was hard to put the book away.

I just needed to know what was going to happen and fell in love with the story again.

The verdict of a book addict:

Although I had a little starting porblems I really enjoyed the third book in this series.

Review: Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

Published 13/04/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   Shadowfever 
Author:              Karen Marie Moning
Pages:                 671
category:           Urban Fantasy

The story:

“Evil is a completely different creature, Mac. Evil is bad that believes it’s good.”

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it

The view of a book addict:

The last book in this series and just like the other books in this series: I loved it! I love how this book just answers the questions you had from book one. The story comes to an end, although you know it isn’t the end because life isn’t back to normal and it will never be normal again.

I’ve been a fan fo Mac from book one and she doesn’t dissapoint me in this book. She still fights for what she believes is right and in the end that’s all that matters. I really liked the ending of this book, it leaves room for your imagination and it still feels like an ending of a wonderful series.

The verdict of a book addict:

What a great way to end a wonderful series!

Night Demon Blog tour

Published 12/04/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Night_Demon_blog_tour_button

I’m excited to be part of this blog tour!! I’ve read the book already and all I can say is: You have to read it!!! It’s the second book in the Night series and it’s just as amazing as the first one. As part of the blog tour here is an excerpt for the book. At the end of the excerpt you can find all the information you need if you want to buy the book yourself and the link for my review of this book. Enjoy the excerpt! But first the gorgeous cover for this book:

Night Demon

And here is the excerpt:

Excerpt First Kiss:

“Tell me something.” His voice was soft and low, like the tide. “Why haven’t you ever been married?”

“I had bigger plans than a wedding.” Gretchen shrugged, unsure where the conversation was headed but encouraged that Lukas finally asked about something unrelated to work. “I had

a couple boyfriends in college, and I dated one of my professors after my doctorate, but relationships don’t travel well, and I like to travel.” She hesitated for a second, glancing his way. “My mom left us when I was little, and a few years ago I lost my dad suddenly. He used to love to take me places camping…” She let out a small sigh. “I feel closer to him when I’m out exploring, I guess.”

Lukas smiled at her, and her stupid heart fluttered in her chest. “Your father raised an amazing woman.”

The brief moment of light was quickly extinguished, though, and his features smoothed back into the chiseled mask of a tormented man.

“What about you?” Gretchen asked. “You’re a good-looking, intelligent guy. Have you ever been married?”

“No.” He clenched his fists, and his forearm muscles contracted. Gretchen did her best not to think about his strong hands as he went on. “I would never wish my life on anyone I loved.”

“You need to look in a mirror, Lukas. Your life is not so bad.” Gretchen straightened up, her brow furrowed. “Maybe you’d notice that if you didn’t waste all your energy pushing everyone

away.”

He shook his head, still staring out at the water. “This isn’t what I want.” He stood up and took her hand, sending a jolt of electricity through her body. His gaze demanded hers, and her breath caught in her throat seeing the hunger in his dark green eyes. “There are sins in my past that can never be forgiven, Gretchen. My only solace is to find answers. Anything beyond that…love, passion…it’s all an illusion for me.”

He leaned toward her, and Gretchen’s chin tilted up instinctively, aching to taste him, to heal his wounded spirit. The moment his cool lips brushed hers, her pulse jumped. His kiss, like rich chocolate, infused her senses, making her hungry for more.

A moan escaped her throat as his tongue swept along the crease of her lips, enticing her to open her mouth and surrender to the passion she’d been trying to bury. His fingers slid into her hair and awareness bloomed through her body, forming a pool of heat in her belly. Gretchen let her

hands explore his chest, living the fantasy she’d harbored for months, when he suddenly took a step back, breaking the contact.

“T’fu! Dammit.” Lukas shook his head, cursing under his breath. A rich undercurrent of a Russian accent flavored his words. It reminded her again that “Smith” was probably not his

real last name.

He released her hand. “Forgive me. I usually have more self control.”

Gretchen wished he had a lot less. Her legs felt rubbery, her senses on overload, and he apologized for it? She thought he’d finally given up keeping a “professional” distance, but no, Lukas was like an onion with never-ending layers. Would he ever let her in?

Review: The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd

Published 01/04/2013 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:                   The Madman’s Daughter        
Author:              Megan Shepherd
Pages:                 358
category:           Supernatural, historical

The story:

London, 1894. Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself-working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumours about her father′s gruesome experiments. But when she learns her father is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations were true.

Juliet is accompanied by the doctor′s handsome young assistant and an enigmatic castaway, who both attract Juliet for very different reasons. They travel to the island only to discover the depths of her father′s madness: he has created animals that have been vivisected to resemble, speak, and behave as humans. Worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island′s inhabitants. Juliet knows she must end her father′s dangerous experiments and escape the island, even though her horror is mixed with her own scientific curiosity. As the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father′s genius-and madness-in her own blood.

The view of a book addict:

No that was the only word I thought when I read the last few sentences of this wonderful book. I saw a couple of reviews for this book on other blogs and when I found it in the bookstore a couple of weeks ago I just knew I had to have it. So I bought it and started reading it, and I loved it from the first sentence.

I love historical books set in Victorian England and although this book doesn’t stay in England it was still something that draw me in. Throw in the whole mad scientist thing and I’m hooked.

The characters were all a mystery to me until the very end of the book. I never suspected what was going to happen and that made me want to turn the pages to find out. The writing style of this book was great if you ask me, it was easy to follow and the cliffhanger at the end of the chapters just kept you reading.

The verdict of a book addict:

I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I know that there are two more books coming and I can’t wait to read them!
