Kissed By Shadows by Lola Stvil

Kissed By Shadows (Kissed By Shadows Series, Book 1) by [StVil, Lola]




Meet this brave young women who is the LAST hope out of all the creatures in this world, to save it. And nobody likes the fact that it is a weak, pathetic human. Atlas is a seeming normal human, who lost her mother and seems like her world feel apart in the first few chapters of her books, all because of her father. But it doesn't stop there. She learns of another world that she has become unwilling part of. 
    When she is whisked away after seeing her friend ripped in half, she meets Kane. A very sexy looking guy, who throws her a$$ out the window. Yes, out the window. All she knows is that Sadie sent her to him, and he is supposed to keep her safe. Not the way to start that off. But she slowly learns more and more of why all this stuff is happening to her, and what all the consequences of her actions will be and she still accepts. To save everyone. This author is new to me, and I love her. I love how descriptive she gets in some spots, and I have one clicked her next book to come out in this series because I have to read more. When the world for the most part is against you, and you are in love with the one demon you should not, and the angels seem shifty. You don't cry, you suck it up and get moving. Only so much time to save the world and all. All because boys will be boys.

deal with no caps, i'm lazy today

OK  let me start off with, I will rarely one click the next book, especially if it is more that 1.99, but i couldn't do that. The cliffhanger (which this author is known to do at the end of the books) has me so hooked, i had to. I like how the backstory was introduced through out the story so that it wasn't to much all at once. I also like the fact that most supernaturals do not like the fact that this last chance rest on the shoulder of this weak, pathetic looking human girl. But as the demon is slowing realizing, humans are more than what they appear. I like the fact that this whole book is based on two sons, who just can't seem to get along. (sounds like my boys, actually, if my boys were twins, i could see them being like this, urg, boys, i love them though) Two so different people with what they want to do to this world, and a father who just can't seem to understand why they feel that way. well i guess he can, but having fun while watching your children hash it out, is also lots of fun. well i guess when lots of lives are on the line, not so much but, hey, gotta have fun as a god somehow. anywho. 
      I like how when she is explained a major plot point. she repeats it back but in simpler terms. just so that the reader gets it. i also love how i can not guess what is going to happen next. you think the author will go one way, but nope, there is a left curve ball, roll with the flow now. hence being thrown out the window. didn't see that coming. there is just so much about this book series that is going to be amazing that i can not wait fir the next book in a couple of days. to know that even though they lost one angel already, and the most dangerous demon in the entire universe, she just happens to be in love with.
     what make their love so interesting to me is, that one: when she said yes to the quest (trademarking that) and when the last thing she needs to complete said quest, is a heart. does that mean her heart, heart of someone she loves?? because when you get all the items together (if you can get them all), they are supposed to make you Immortal. so if she kills herself, wont she still survive? maybe i read it wrong. who knows. but more interesting is that fact this last time to try and save the world, because no one else has succeed from the rest of the supernatural community. They all have been based of off a deadly sin. and this time it is seduction. maybe this demon is playing her, making her fall in love. Maybe it is part of the quest, that he to has feelings because the father wants to save his precious humans. maybe it is all a ploy. and the author is just messing with our heads. although, i think the demon is not legit doing this on purpose, but it is a demon. love or not. sometimes we just don't have a choice. 
        so if you haven't check this one out. It was very funny. the main character is quick to snap back and i love it. I am just like that, and love to find it in characters in books


Forgotten (The Lost Children Trilogy) By Krista Street

Forgotten: Book #1 in The Lost Children Trilogy by [Street, Krista]

So I got this book for free from Amazon, and was like, huh, well seems interesting enough, lets see what becomes of this. And it wasn't half bad. I like the build up and the base that was established with this book. But you can't expect to much back story when they wake with out remembering who you are or where you are. But the author did a great job of still giving me enough to go on. And to keep me interested in the next book for sure. I have no idea how I can relate to this type of situation but the author did a good job of putting me in the head of these people and even better with unknown powers to each. Although they do know their powers, they still don't know if it is natural, or if they are aliens from another planet. Heck, if I woke up with no memory I would want to think that I was from a different planet like Superman. Can't be that far fetched. All though the book did seem to drag a little, it was necessary for the development of the book series. Next book to come after a while. It is on my TBRL on goodreads now. So as always, below is filled with spoilers and my personal rants and raves of the books. So its FREE as of today on amazon, go get it, check it out.

Alright, so this book was pretty good as stated from above. What I find weird is that only one person from this group of 8 seems to have woke up differently. Wonder if that has anything to do with the part of her memory loss. But waking up with no memories and nothing around you would scare the crap out of me. And to have this gut feeling to go one way or another. Well at least that never let her down. But to be able to judge peoples characters by the "clouds" (aura) on a person would be an amazing gift to have. I just hope that she is reading them properly. Since she didn't have any memories, I hope that she is right with it all. When she meets the group, I think I would of bailed on that car ride. Even if their clouds were different. They just seemed really weird to be in that car ride with. What is even more weird to me, is that most of this group is unwilling and not really seeming interested in finding out who they are. I would be filled with so many questions and would want to know, but I guess when you are reminded that you are not filled as a missing person or that your names are common, doesn't really help. But still. I am glad they all found each other, this group of misfits, and that they got some answers and the end of this book. I do really like the open communication that this group seems to have. More often than not, in a group with this many main characters, doesn't always seem to happen, but the author said it best, (pg. 163) "Control isn't something we have much of." I love that they work as one, and not a dictatorship like most seem to be. over all, a solid 4/5 flying flaming weasels from me. Oh and I absolutely love the Ranch. except creepy dude. I love the idea, I love the owners, and if this ever happens to me. I hope that I land on a place like this, sounded so lovely. (just got back from Colorado in Nov) And I totally wanna bit@h slap Amber.
