#Review – The Draqon’s Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu #5) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu, #5)

 

She’s the spoiled daughter of the evilest man in the universe, but this Draqon refuses to let his feelings get in the way of his mission: assassinating her father.

Veronica Gideon has grown up a proper debutante. Intergalactic parties, socialite friends, and all the trappings of wealth and power. Attitude and privilege are her way of life until she’s forced to confront the underbelly of her father’s leadership by her charismatic, sexy guard with his own secrets–secrets that could get her killed.

Maxsym defied his Draqon hive leader to infiltrate the Zynthar International Space Station and kill Commander Gideon. But one thing threatens to derail his rogue mission, and she’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. Far from the safety of Kladuu and his hive, Maxsym must navigate a space station full of dangerous humans and his unexpected feelings for the bratty human woman with more depth than he’d expected.

Will the two of them save Kladuu, or will their differences rip them apart?

Goodreads

 

I cannot get enough of The Shifter’s of Kladuu series! This is the 5th book and although these can be read as standalones I highly recommend reading them in order as many of the characters come back throughout the series and there is a better understanding of exactly what the back story is on each one. The Draqon’s Brat is the story of Maxsym, the Draqon’s Hive Master, and Veronica Gideon, the spoiled debutant daughter of Captain Gideon of the Zynthar Space Station. Maxsym is a playboy from the hive and has defied orders and has infiltrated the Zynthar Space Station in hopes of assassinating Captain Gideon due to his dealings with the flesh trade (trafficking). Maxsym has been appointed the guard over Veronica and is hoping this will get him closer to her father, Gideon. Right from jump Maxsym and Veronica absolutely hate each other. Well, they really love to hate each other, LOL! There is an intense push and pull between the two. They are both hard headed and stubborn and the banter between each other is both fun to read as well as frustrating. At times you want to shake them both and tell them to get on with it! But this frustration is incredibly well written and necessary for the story. Veronica and Maxsym both uncover more secrets and cover ups that Captain Gideon is part of. They both need to decide if they are worth it for each other or if they need to part ways due to the different worlds they are from. The story is one of those that you will sit and read in one sitting and not even realize the amount of time that has gone by. Trust me, you need this series in your life!

Call of the Raven (The Union Series #1)

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.
A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love he will die.
Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.
This becomes his strongest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help him change his fate?

#Review – The Draqon’s Queen (Shifters Of Kladuu #4) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Queen (Shifters of Kladuu, #4)

 

She just wants time to heal her broken heart. Instead, she finds her true calling astride a sexy, grizzled Draqon with fire colored wings.

Niva returned to Kladuu for the Alpha of Clan Vilka, but when he took another mate, her heart shattered. To pick up the pieces, she travels to the Draqons’ hive with their menacing, gruff leader. But behind his black eyes lies the one man who may be able to put her pieces back together.

Years ago, Zayd lost his Queen in a battle that left him scarred and full of self-loathing. But when a beautiful young human comes to live at his hive high in the snow-capped mountains on Kladuu, his heart begins to thaw. Flying in his Draqon form has always been about harnessing his rage, but with Niva on his back, he finds a freedom he never felt, even with his Queen.

When Kladuu is threatened, Zayd must face his fear for Niva’s safety and accept her as his rider and new Queen, or it may be the end of the planet they both call home.

* The Draqon’s Queen is book four in the Shifters of Kladuu and should be read after The Vilka’s Captive for a consistent series experience. *

Goodreads

 

A fiery story! Niva’s story is one of my favorites! Meek Niva is able to talk Zayd into taking her back to the Draqon hive with him. Zayd is compelled to bring her with him, and has no idea why, but it is killing him inside trying to figure it out. Niva wants to put her life on Earth and life with the Vilka’s behind her once and for all. She just wants to find her place and be accepted. She is drawn to Zayd and him to her but they try to fight it. Zayd has experienced a major heartbreak and coming to terms with this is putting Niva in harm’s way. In the past books the Vilka’s and Draqon’s have always had issues with each other. With impending doom on the horizon that’s putting them all at risk they are forging an alliance. The question is finding out if it will be worth it and if they can all be saved. The push and pull between Niva and Zayd is fire and ice. Hot and cold all at the same time.  The story and the blooming love will bring you through a range of emotions from being happy and laughing, on the verge of tears then making your hear t pound with the suspenseful twists. The world of Kladuu is simply intriguing! I would visit if I could. Until then, I will continue the series as it keeps getting better and better!

#NewRelease – The Vilka’s Servant: Scifi Alien Romance (Shifters of Kladuu #1) by Pearl Foxx

The Vilka's Servant: Scifi Alien Romance (Shifters of Kladuu Book 1)

 

Kladuu is a planet full of shape-shifting clans.

It’s also the best-kept secret from the clans’ greatest enemy: Humans.

Vera is the sole female engineer in her department aboard the Zynthar International Space Station. Fighting against sexist prejudices is the only battle Vera has known until a band of rogue aliens attack the space station, taking her and a group of women hostage. It’s a battle between life and death when Vera and the women are forced into servitude on an unknown planet full of shape-shifting alien wolves called Vilkas. Vera will do anything to escape, but the Vilka she works for is protective and loyal … and far too attractive.

Rayner is Beta of Clan Vilka on Kladuu. It’s a position he puts before all other aspects of his life, including love. But the more he gets to know his beautiful human servant, the more he recognizes the flaws in his clan’s way of life. Amidst the stirrings of a servant uprising, another serious threat lurks in the shadows, waiting to destroy all Rayner holds dear—including Vera.

When Rayner’s duties to his clan and his Alpha fall in direct opposition to protecting Vera—to protecting his mate—he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Even if the cost is betraying his people.

Even if the cost is his life.

Oh the stars and moons! Yes, please! This is a suspenseful, sci-fi, alien romance. There is never a dull moment in this story. Right from jump you meet Vera, one of the only women engineers on the international space station. She is constantly being looked down upon as she is a woman. She and other human females are abducted by the Vilka’s. Right here, this part of the story….this is where Vera truly finds herself. She is strong and makes a vow to help the other women on board. But then they find out that their captors are shape shifting wolves. Just when you didn’t think things could get worse, right? They land on Kladuu, the shifter’s home planet and taken in as servants to help save them from being sold in the flesh trade. Vera meets Rayner, the Beta, and her benefactor. Tension rises! Like, quick! Here is where things get tricky. The love and attraction that occurs is wonderful and beautifully timed but Vera and Rayner are of two different species. Rayner has duties to his clan and his planet. Vera has vowed to help her fellow women that were abducted. The plot twists! Yes, they are there and they are in the most perfect spots. Pearl Foxx has done an excellent job in developing these characters and the world building is phenomenal. I started reading and couldn’t put this down. But when I did, I couldn’t get this story out of my head. I had to finish it. Oh, and hold on tight because the end is of cosmic proportions! Perfect set up for another book. I can’t wait!

#Review – #NewRelease – Paper Tigers (Fear University, Book 4) by Meg Collett

Paper Tigers (Fear University, Book 4)

 

Fear University has created a new monster …

The infamous fear switch research started with me, Patient Zero. But I am a failure. My mind adapted and now I move through the shadows like the creatures I was created to hunt. I spent my entire life in a cage with scalpels in my brain, but I am finally free—thanks to the Commander.

But something new is killing Original families all over Kodiak Island and nearly assassinated the president of my university. The hunters call it a ghost, but I know she’s something more. Something worse than monsters and men. Something like me.

Fear University is my home, and I will kill to protect it.

 

Goodreads

 

It’s truly an intense story and this series has made it to one of my all time favorites. It’s an action packed thriller with some craziness on the side. More please! This series goes along with some Filipino folklore that I never knew existed. This author has brought Aswangs to life in this series along with some new monsters that we love to hate. Ollie is our lead female, she is a strong warrior halfling (half human and half aswang) that has come back with a vengeance. She has come back to bring Fear University to its former glory but is then put on hold due to some gruesome deaths. There is a “ghost” that lives in the shadows, going on killing sprees and has Fear University in it’s sights. Turns out that this ghost is actually the first “successful” experiment with the fear switch. But Zero adapted and now is on Fear University’s radar. There is so much more going on behind this part of the story. Sunny is working on an antidote for the aswang saliva, Hatter is still manic, and Luke is still in love with Ollie. People are scared. Some are running and some are fighting. Saviors or fighters? The group has been put in some crazy situations, desperate times call for desperate measures. They are all holding on to themselves while discovering who they really are. And lets not forget their families….some make a reappearance in this story. Some heartfelt and some heart wrenching. I can’t wait for more! Meg Collett did it again!

#Review #NewRelease – Lux and Lies (Whitebird Chronicles, #1) by Meg Collett

Lux and Lies (Whitebird Chronicles, #1)

Mr. Robot meets UnReal in a story of celebrities and anarchists, reality shows and evil corporations, romance and self-discovery.

Nineteen-year-old Wren Iver is nothing more than a dying girl with cancer, but when megastar Sloan Lux dies right before filming starts on the year’s most anticipated reality show, producers scramble to secretly replace her—with Wren. She’s swept into Hollywood and promised a cure by VidaCorp, the nation’s richest pharmaceutical company, for simply replacing Lux. It’s a deal Wren can’t refuse.

The decision could get her killed, because she isn’t the only cast member with ulterior motives.

The Whitebirds, a social anarchist group, has infiltrated the show, and they’ll stop at nothing to use Sloane Lux’s fame to derail VidaCorp’s efforts to legalize their controversial, life-changing drug—a drug that might kill more people than it saves. Caught in the middle of a game between a powerful corporation and ruthless anarchist group, Wren will do anything to survive.

Will Wren secure the drug she needs to survive, or will she become another casualty in the anarchists’ fight against VidaCorp?

Goodreads

I was sucked in right from the beginning. This is a futuristic type thriller with twists in the story that will keep you guessing what is going to happen. Nothing about what is going on in the story is normal, in the best possible way. Wren is sick with lung cancer and is dying with no cure in sight. She rolls with all the other poverty stricken people in her area when all of sudden the tides change. She is given the opportunity of a lifetime….to survive. VidaCorp is going to cure her and all she has to do is replace Sloane Lux. Sounds easy, right? Lux is the biggest star of her lifetime. She is placed into the unreal world of Hollywood where everyone is watching you. She is training to be Lux and is brought into this crazy, intense world. She is given the enormous task of not only being Lux, but also is trying to find out who the insider is with the Whitebirds (a gang that has been after VidaCorp) as they have infiltrated this world. After many lies have been thrown around in this intricately carved society, there are also many truths that come forward. Some of these truths are absolutely unthinkable and the lies that have been strung throughout them are super intense. All throughout the story I kept thinking “this is the best twist” but then there is another turn. It’s like playing CLUE. Constantly trying to figure out who did it and how. I never saw the ending coming. Which in my eyes is one of the most important things about a story. Constantly kept me on the edge of my seat guessing. Cannot wait to see what happens with our girl, Wren!

#Review – Monster Mine, Fear University #3 by Meg Collett

 

 

I, Sunny Lyons, am chasing my best friend’s ghost.

Or at least I thought I was until Ollie calls me on the phone and tells me to come to Anchorage, Alaska. We find her in a renovated warehouse surrounded by halflings and Hex, her father and the greatest aswang warrior who has ever lived.

While trying to protect Ollie from the people who want to use her as a weapon, I stumble across a secret the halflings will kill to protect—a secret that could save the man I love. I may be the Cowardly Lyon, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to protect my friends—even if it kills me.

 

My name is Ollie Volkova, and I am not broken.

Though my friends may say otherwise after I spent three weeks with a sadistic madman. They think I’m crazy, but when a monster called the Manananggal surfaces on the outskirts of Anchorage, my father offers to tell me about my mother in exchange for my help in hunting down the winged creature. It’s a deal I can’t pass up. Not when my mother’s past is so important to my future.

But the more I learn about her, the more I discover about my monster’s soul, and when my father reveals the final, darkest truth, the decision I make will change the course of my life.

 

*Warning: Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.*

 

Goodreads

 

Truths and lies, twists and turns…Fate. Ollie was kidnapped and tortured. Her friends are on a never ending hunt to find her, to help her. Turns out that Ollie has reunited with her father who she learns isn’t all the monster that everyone believes him to be, at least that is what she is trying to figure out. She learns so much about her mom and how her parents came to be, why her mother left, and why her father keeps fighting. Sunny is with Luke and Hatter looking for Ollie. Ollie reaches out to them and they come to the sanctuary that Ollie is at.

So many demons…Luke is dealing with the truth about Ollie being a halfling, Hatter is dealing with his manic episodes, Sunny is dealing with trying to protect everyone, and Ollie is putting her pieces back together.

The story goes back and forth between Ollie’s and Sunny’s POV. You are totally immersed in this story. Ollie is struggling with deciding where she belongs. With her father, Hex, and the halflings or if she needs to go back to Fear University. The lesser evil, right? They are all faced with major decisions, they fight with themselves and their demons to do what is right.

The story is jam packed with…with everything. Action, love, and all around badassery. There are so many warring emotions that you can’t help but to feel like you are right in the middle.

The Fear University series is one of my favorites and the author did not disappoint with Monster Mine!

synopsis

In the far Alaskan north, there are places the winter sun cannot reach. Places where light won’t shine for months. These are the places we hunt the monsters who feed on fear.

So begins the Killing Season.

For the next sixty-five days, we will face the darkness. Some will hunt the aswangs in the ever night, but I, Ollie Andrews, am here for one purpose: to search for answers to my past.

They told us to fear the arctic tundra and the monsters hiding in the deep, dark shadows. But, locked inside a base known for driving even the best hunters mad, I fear it’s not the outside we should worry about, but the deepest, darkest parts of ourselves.

The real monsters are within.

When a brutal murder brings with it the secrets of Fear University—and the threat of an unknown killer on the loose—we all must fight to stay alive. But with madness and paranoia setting in during a whiteout snowstorm, all we can do is hope we don’t destroy ourselves before the sun finally rises again. Because no matter how hard we fight, reality will always threaten to tear us apart.

And when faced with the most terrible of truths, even the strongest break.

kellys review

This series is un-freaking-believable! I had such a book hangover from Fear University. I read it in one sitting and could not get it out of my head. Then I get the opportunity to read The Killing Season and Meg Collett did it again. The author had me completely sucked in from the start. I spent hours reading (trying to do housework and normal every day things) but noooooo! All I could think about is what is going to happen next. This series is so full of twists and turns that you get to the point that you are not sure if you can trust yourself, almost as if you are the bad guy! Ugh! Trust is a very valued commodity for this story and the rollercoaster of emotions and actions will keep you on your toes for the duration!

We start right where Fear University ends. Ollie and Sunny are sent with the other hunters to Barrow for the killing season. Hatter and Luke are with this group as well. With the exception of Luke’s mother and NyNy (the scientist), Ollie and Sunny are left alone in the estate during the day while the hunters are on their hunts. Some strange things are happening and Ollie is at the middle of it. They get some diturbing news about Peg, one of the hunters are murdered, and Luke’s father seems out to get Ollie but gives her a mission to find the leak within the University. One thing after another, after another keeps happening and Ollie keeps finding herself in the middle. Then the Taber’s reappear! Boom! More craziness! The story never slows down and holds you in it’s clutches to the very end.

“He thought we were too screwed up to be together, and maybe he was right. But I liked our kind of screwy. It was just the right kind of dark and twisted, sprinkled with the perfect amount of crazy.”

“I can love you because I know where all your cracks are. Because I know when you need to be cussed out and when you need to be held. I know how to destroy you and I know how to repair you. I know you’re not a good man, but I know you’re the best kind of man in the world: ruthless and wicked and loyal and brave. I’ll help you fix the cracks and keep out the shadows but only when you need me to. And when you want to kill your father, I’ll hand you the knife. When we go to kill Max, I know you’ll watch as I dig his grave, and afterward, when he’s dead, I know you’ll kiss my bloody lips and still love me just the same. That’s why I can love you, Luke. Because we’re the only ones who can love each other the right way.”

“You can be my monster in the dark and I’ll be the shadows to shield you.””

This story is all about finding out who you are, where you belong, and embracing it. Absolute must read!!!
