Black Wings & Black Night Reviews

I thought I would review both books together since I have already read both. First I will say that Ace did a great job putting the covers together. As someone that buys books more often than not based on the cover alone I love them!

Title: Black Wings (Book 1)

Author: Christina Henry

Series: Black Wings

Madeline Black is no ordinary human. Her job is to escort souls to the afterlife. She is an agent of death with no social life. When not collecting souls Maddy spends her time at home with Beezle her doughnut loving gargoyle. Maddy is mortal but has wings at her disposal and while said wings are out she cannot be seen by others. Enter charming, good looking Gabriel, I couldn’t decide if he was a good guy or a bad guy at first. All I knew was that from Henry’s description he despite being very good looking he might not be trustworthy. Maddy faces relatives she never knew she had and finds out who her real father is and how her mother really died all in the first book. Not only does Maddy have to fight with her boss J.B. while at work she has a whole horde of demons to fight also. The book is fast paced and kept me turning the page wanting to know what happens next. I give it 4 1/2 stars.

 There are spoilers from Book 1 below.. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to know some important things you find out in book 1!!

Consider yourself warned!

Title: Black Night (Book 2)

Author: Christina Henry

Series: Black Wings

Maddy, Gabriel, J.B. and Beezle are on a mission. That mission is to keep Maddy alive. She recently found out that her father is one of the Fallen. Yes that Fallen. He is an angel or rather was an angel. And even bigger she is the grand-daughter or Lucifer! Her crazy half-brother is still trying to kill her, but she can’t kill him because that is against Lucifer’s law. So in order to win she must be creative. Having been appointed as the new ambassador to faerie by Lucifer himself Maddy is in for a whole new world of trouble. J.B. and Nathaniel escort her to faerie where she is in for an adventure that she is in no way ready for. * I felt that this one was a little slower than the first but thought it was a good read. It did leave me wanting to know what was going to happen in book 3. I will be starting that one soon and will let you know what I think of it. I give Black Night 4 stars.

Sins of the Angels by Linda Poitevin

By Linda Poitevin

Sins of the Angels
By Linda Poitevin
My review:
A fantastic must read. Sins of the Angels kept me up for numerous nights because I couldn’t put it down! It had me frustrated at parts and amazed at others. The characters draw you in from the start and you won’t want to put it down. I loved the tension between Alex and Aramael, they quickly became two of my favorite characters. Linda has done a great job creating a spot for herself in the Urban Fantasy world with her enticing characters and plot that pulls you in from the very first page and leaves you wanting more. If you like Angels and detective mysteries then this series is for you! Look for book 2 in the Grigori Legacy, Sins of the Son coming March 27, 2012.
I loved it so much that I bought 7 copies for the members of my book club and got personalized book plates autographed by Linda for each book. I highly recommend getting this book right away and also checking out Linda’s blog.

Exiled by M.R. Merrick

By M.R. Merrick

Exiled

By M.R. Merrick

My goodreads review:

First let me say that this book actually had me crying at the end and I can’t say that about very many books! Movies maybe but very few books have that power! I love it. It was different from books that I am used to but I couldn’t be happier that I gave it a try because there was enough action and twists in it to keep my attention and keep me wanting more. It captured my attention from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down. I cannot wait until the next book comes out. I highly recommend it. M.R. Merrick your book is filled with awesomeness!

Having said that I recently purchased 10 autographed copies of Exiled from M.R. Merrick! 9 of said copies were for friends and family that I want to read it because I pimp books out to anyone and everyone that will listen and it was that AWESOME that I want everyone to read it! The last copy I am keeping to give away at a later date. So if you haven’t read Exiled yet what in the heck are you waiting for? The second book Shift just came out on the 1st so you better get going! And that’s an order 🙂

Clockwork Prince

By Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince

By Cassandra Clare

Review:

I finished Clockwork Prince the other day and I still can’t decide what my feelings are. I loved how well written it was, but my heart was also broken. Or I should say my heart broke right along with Wills. I saw posts and comments on twitter about how much everyone was heartbroken over the book and I must say it made me a little hesitant to read it. I made it about half way through and decided I just couldn’t finish it, I didn’t want my heart to break too. But I finally sucked it up and finished it. I am glad I did and that I can honestly say I laughed out loud at parts, cried at other parts and was left with mixed emotions. I love Jem and am happy he is happy, but Will is my favorite character for reasons I can’t explain other than that his pain and suffering so far have made me connect with him. Congratulations to Cassandra Clare for yet again leaving me confused and hating and loving your book all at the same time!
