Emilia Daarke has wanted to escape the Summer Court her entire life. She’s not brutal like the other Fae. She’s not savage. But they are.
When the boy she loves, Cade Vasara, Crowned Prince of the Winter Court, kills Emilia’s twin, they are torn apart and Emilia’s love for Cade dies just like her sibling did.
Years later, she has fallen in love with a hunter – a forbidden love that goes against all that she has been taught. A man her father will never approve of. When her secret is outed, her father captures her Hunter and gives Emilia an ultimatum.
If she succeeds, she’ll lose the one she loves. But if she fails, he will die, and she will never be able to forgive herself…
This is the first book I’ve ever read of Sloane’s. It’s the mention of the fae that drew me in! And I wasn’t disappointed! Whew what a page turner that was! I love the writing style, it was so easy to get into. I love the chemistry between both Emilia and Oberon, and Emilia and Cade. I was actually torn about who I wanted to ship her with. I love how gory and dark it was in some places and how heated things got in others! I REALLY enjoyed the twists; and that cliff hanger at the end? Oh. My. God! I was about 90% through reading when I had an inkling that a certain character would turn. I’m a bit gutted though, I really liked them! A part of me is hoping it’s all some kind of act. Speaking of characters, I didn’t warm to Lex. He’s definitely one shady dude! However, maybe I’ll be surprised in the next book and he actually turns out good? Who knows? But I’m dying to find out what happens!
Book two, A King’s Oath, will be released in December.

Title: Wolf Slayer: The Order of the Wolf, Book 2.

She would have made his next breath his last, if he hadn’t stolen hers.
Order of the Wolf, Book 2
Aubrey Devlin thought she had a destiny—to become a Huntress, be mated to a Hunter, and spend her life in everlasting, werewolf ass-kicking bliss. But after years of honing her wolf-slaying skills, it’s her twin sister who’s chosen for the coveted honor.
Swallowing her disappointment, she takes a job as head of security for the band Riot. Staying professional is tough when it comes to the band’s sex-god bassist, an alpha bad-boy to the extreme. She will keep her mind on her work—as soon as she figures out how to stop drooling over the man.
Jaylon isn’t good with women—especially those with the ability to kill him—yet he knows without a doubt Aubrey is his mate. Now if only he can get the stubborn woman to fall for him.
One argument too many, and instead of clawing each other’s eyes out, they wind up clawing each other’s clothes off. It’s then that Jaylon realizes the truth: Aubrey is a true Huntress. He’d better find a way to claim his mate before a Hunter claims her first…
Warning: Sexually explicit (like ripping-clothes-off, sex-in-public-places explicit) language. Rock-star bad-ass with long hair and a wicked bite. A take-no-crap huntress who bites back. You are encouraged to lick, suck, and devour your way through this tasty treat in one sitting—just be aware you might be hungry for more.
Mmm a sexy paranormal romance with a female huntress protagonist, werewolves and an awesome band? Oh hell yeah it’s my kinda book! I devoured it in no time. I’m a sucker for the hunter/werewolf (in this case) supposed forbidden love stories. It was so exciting! I found myself frustrated that as far as Aubrey was aware, her destiny is to kill the werewolves and she has no idea that there is this whole other side to her destiny that she hasn’t been told about. I was itching for her to find out the truth.
The chemistry between Aubrey and Jaylon was hot. The sex scenes were pretty racy and detailed but not on every other page which I was thankful for as I prefer a decent plot with a few sex scenes over something that is basically porn. I was gutted when the story suddenly ended a little unexpectedly. I felt there was a lot more still to be told and I ached to read the next in the series where I hope Aubrey and Jaylon’s story will continue and that Aubrey learns more about her heritage. Plus, I want to know more about the rest of the pack. Especially Dyami.
Title: Dark Child (Covens Rising): Episode 1
Author: Adina West
Published: 3rd July 2014
Kat Chanter isn’t your ordinary girl. And she isn’t your ordinary vampire, either. The ruthless Directorate would go to any lengths to have her power – including murder. And when that leads to a war between races, Kat’s fate becomes the ultimate prize …
Kat is done with being on the run, or so she hopes. A new pathology job in Paris is her big chance to start afresh, far from the Tabérin Directorate who want her dead. Sure, adjusting to life as a half-vampire, half-human hybrid in transition poses its own challenges, but it’s nothing Kat can’t handle … until the past starts to catch up with her.
When she’s approached by one Tabérin male from her past, she can explain it away. But add in another territorial Tabérin with a newfound conscience and it’s starting to get crowded on Kat’s Montmartre window ledge. Past experience tells Kat to be cautious, especially in her vulnerable state. But how can she tell friend from foe?
I have really mixed feelings about this book and in the beginning I had a few problems with it; I found it hard to connect with a couple of the characters and it lacked detail in a general sense and also when describing the main characters. It was all just very….vague. For quite a way into the story I had no idea what the main character, Kat, was or what she was transitioning into, and only by the blurb did I know that she was half vampire, half human hybrid. This was not explained in detail in the story. A few times I found myself feeling a little clueless about what was going on. I wanted to know more of the backstory, something that explained what the characters were part of, why Kat was running away from some kind of group called the Tabérin Directorate (again, this was explained in the blurb but not in detail in the book), and what had happened to Kat for it to be described as “….her life went to hell in a hand basket a couple of weeks ago”? I really would have liked that to have been elaborated on. Instead, it was just a brief recalling.
This is actually a sequel to the series “Dark child: Awakening” so if you haven’t read that then I definitely don’t recommend reading this first.
I really liked that it was written from four characters PoVs: Kat, Ben, Dominic and Imara’s and I wondered if their paths would cross. Paranormal is my favourite sub-genre so I love that vampires, shifters and witches were in it. There was an air of intrigue and mystery about the story that had you wanting to know more. Although I initially thought the story was lacking in detail and was quite vague, as the story goes on, it does unravel some more and you’re told more about what happened in the past and a little more about the characters. I found that I was drawn more to Ben and Imara’s story than Kat and Dominic’s. Although Dominic and Kat did begin to grow on me. Despite my negative feelings, by the time I’d got to the end of the book, I’d found that I had enjoyed it and really wanted to find out what happened next. Especially with Yara who was Ben’s love interest. Why was she drinking the blood? Was she born that way or made? And what was she exactly? A witch, vampire, or shifter? Why was she being held captive in her own home? I was also interested to know where Falcon goes off to as he seems really secretive. I’m hoping there’ll be answers in the next episode of the Covens Rising series.
