Changes

Last year in August I decided to change my blog from blogger to wordprees.com, with thoughts about going serious and moving altogether into a hosted wordpress.org. So at first my moving was to get settled and make the big change in 2014, not because everyone ws doing it, but I wanted something of my own. Reviewing books it’s only a hobby to me. I read way too much and after requesting some books from NetGalley and publisher, my focus changed from something easy and simple to almost a job, but this year I’m going back to my origins in two fronts:

  • my TBR pile is huge and now it’s time to focus on those oldies and good books, but also to finish those series we used to love but got a little lost in the big sea of new releases.
  • I decided to return to google and blogger, because I suffered way too much with wordpress on these few months, people say everything is better, but to me things were not so good.

I’m working on making everything okay after the big come back, since the posts have lost a little on the moving, but I’m returning to what I know and don’t hate at the moment.

Since I already have several posts scheduled for the next few days, my official move will be Sunday. After that only posts on the blogger: Book Travels

Summary:

Mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate, Curran, the Beast Lord, are struggling to solve a heartbreaking crisis. Unable to control their beasts, many of the Pack’s shapeshifting children fail to survive to adulthood. While there is a medicine that can help, the secret to its making is closely guarded by the European packs, and there’s little available in Atlanta.

Kate can’t bear to watch innocents suffer, but the solution she and Curran have found threatens to be even more painful. The European shapeshifters who once outmaneuvered the Beast Lord have asked him to arbitrate a dispute—and they’ll pay him in medicine. With the young people’s survival and the Pack’s future at stake, Kate and Curran know they must accept the offer—but they have little doubt that they’re heading straight into a trap…

Review:

I had ups and downs with this book, but the story was so amazing. I liked the different setting and the boat trip was so special, I had no idea about those different kinds of shifters, but Kate and Curran managed to kill them all.

The gang is all together because Curran was invited to work as a bodyguard, but of course Kate decided to went with him and after that the numbers only growed. Andrea and Raphael managed to get inside the group along with Aunt B. But for me the most different and surprising was the Doc.

I liked the story and of course seeing what Hugh is really after, but the different mythologies and creatures made this book perfect for me.

Summary:

Some people have everything figured out—Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of the Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea’s whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.

When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano—the male alpha of the Clan Bouda, as well as Andrea’s former lover—die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate…and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a back seat to saving the world…

Review:

This was supposed to be a novella, but I discovered that it was a very long one and it helped a lot to fulfill this world, I liked Andrea for her wit and attitude, but Raphael is also a very handsome and nice person, he helped Andrea to understand her other side and after some time they finally managed to discover a nice relationship, but ever since their fall out and Andrea disappearance things are not the same, so it was great for us to have a full book with them.

Andrea has come a full 360 with her attitude towards the boudas and I really liked the way she handled the pack and the other boudas, because she’s beastkin and is not really a part of them, but after some needed break, she decided to claim her inner beast and now the only thing missing is Raphael.

I understand his need to fear, because Andrea was never really sure of their relationship, but now things are different and their life are in danger. It was really nice to see they battle and discover a new life together. They deserved a full novel, because Kate and Curran always put other people on the sideline, but their characters are great and it was an awesome book.

Summary:

Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job.

Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she’s still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be—now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate’s mate.

So when Atlanta’s premier Master of the Dead calls to ask for help with a vampire on the loose, Kate leaps at the chance of some paying work. Turns out this is not an isolated incident, and Kate needs to get to the bottom of it—fast, or the city and everyone dear to her might pay the ultimate price . . .

Review:

So Kate and Curran are finally together as mates and we can clearly see that both are happier about it, but life is not easier for them and now things are not normal. Kate has her own firm, with the help of Curran and the Pack, but she doesn’t have any clients, after her ex-boss Ted decided to bad talk about her.

The Red Guard is back and Kate’s job is to find a kidnapped victim, sounds easy enough, but in reality this involves everything from witches to technology. I liked getting to know more about the witches, because those girls come make some really strong spells, but the best part was the drama.

The action was great and I liked getting to know more about the Pack day-to-day drama, and it was nice seeing Kate settling more in her new life. But I love the side characters. Derek is awesome and I liked Ascanio too. Curran is always trying to save someone and this time it was so nice to see Kate falling to his rules.
