Runes (Runes, #1)Runes by Ednah Walters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Imagine... 17 years old, missing father, erratic mother, best friend has moved across town from the house next door, and NOW a gorgeous, mysterious guy moves in to your BFF's former home. Strange happenings are only the beginning for Raine!

With a strong Norse-based mythology Ednah has created a fun, fast-paced read about coming of age, and learning not everything is as you've been led to believe. This book grabbed me from the get-go, and was so awesome I had to start the second book minutes later!

I've just downloaded it to my daughter's Nook, and can't wait to hear what she thinks of it!

Immortals (Runes, #2)Immortals by Ednah Walters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Raine & Torin are at it again, but they have a few stumbling blocks to get past - like the fact that Torin doesn't remember ever having known Raine...

And, Raine is in for the surprise of her life!

Great read! Can't wait to share this series with my daughter!

Southern SpiritsSouthern Spirits by Angie Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.* I fell in love with Angie's Demon Slayer series, and was thrilled to be able to review this book prior to release.


Wow! Great book! Can't wait to read more in this series!

There's a mystery to be solved and spirits to be "tamed". From Verity's spunk (and unusual pet) to Ellis's down-to-earth attitude this story grabs you from the start and makes you want to keep reading. She leaves her fiance at the altar and that's only the beginning of her troubles!

I can normally tell you "who-dun-it" long before the end of the story, and this one took me by surprise!

Breaking Creed: Introducing Ryder Creed (A Ryder Creed Novel)Breaking Creed: Introducing Ryder Creed by Alex Kava
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

**I received an ARC of Breaking Creed from First To Read in exchange for an honest review.**

I have never read any of Alex Kava's novels prior to this book. I'd heard very good things about Kava, and sometimes read novels in this genre so I thought I'd give it a shot... I was unable to finish this book.

The story is well written, but it didn't hold my interest. The switches between Ryder's POV and Maggie's POV didn't move as smoothly as I would have liked. I managed to get through about half of the book before I set it aside.

I'd say fans of Micheal Crichton, Tom Clancy, and Patricia Cornwell would probably enjoy this book.
