This is the second book in the "Intertwined" series...and once again you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!!!

****WARNING: There will be spoilers...sorry :(***
Aden finds himself the King of the vampires...a HUMAN king no less, and an unwanted job at that. Lucky for him he has the worlds greatest friends. Who would've thought that his best friend would be a werewolf, his girlfriend a vampire, and of course a human?! Life is finally getting good for Aden....never mind the death curse that has been sworn and thiose he cares about and dealing with the loss of one of the souls. Who knew that he would miss them when they left? And who could forget his own impending death, not much for a sixteen year old to worry about! If anyone can handle it...Aden can!
There are so many twists and turns to this book that I don't know what to tell you and what not to tell you! Riley and Mary Ann...she discovers something about herself that should have her dead ASAP. It puts their relationship in a precarious spot too. Vicotria and Aden's realationship gets stronger everyday! Encounters with fairies, and goblins leave them tired and sometimes not knowing what or where they have been, but they come out alive.
How do you know if a vampire is really dead? You don't! Just when you think that Aden will take the reigns of being King...someone will try to stop him...will Aden survive? Is this the death that Elijah predicted? If so at least he can die happy right?
Like I said this book has so many twists and turns and can't put it down! I literally took it with me everywhere! I know that I am not doing justice in reviewing these books (hopefully I will get better), but take my word for it...JUST READ IT!!! You will LOVE it just like I did!
I gave this book 5 stars!


"Sunshine" written by Robin McKinley is a book that came out long before the vampires of the "Twilight" saga made vampires cool. With that said said...yes it is a vampire book. However, unlike "Twilight" the vampires in this book are not gorgeous, they are not kind and they are not trying to be good...they are anything but that!

Sunshine has grown up in a world where darkness reigns, where vampires, weres, demons, and the like are a part of life that you avoid...if you want to live that is. Nothing bad has happened out at the lake for years and all she needed was some time alone. She never heard them coming, but you never do hear vampires. They made her dress in a long red dress and then shackle her to a wall, abandoning her with another prisoner. A vampires no less. She knows she is his dinner, and that when he is finished she will be dead. However, when morning comes she is still alive, he hasn't even tried to harm her, and yet it is he who will need her help to survive the day.

Being shackled to the wall awakens a sleeping power deep withen Sunshine. Suddenly she finds herself able to transmute a pocketknife into a key that can set herself and her vampire friend free. Not only that, but as long as he holds onto her, he can go into the sun. They escape from the clutches of an evil vampire who wants to kill any cost, however by doing that they also enrage him and he wants nothing more than both of their blood.

Humans and vampires have never worked together and yet Sunshine and Con share a bond that won't let them stay apart. To defeat Bo they will have to work together and trust one another...if that is possible. Sunshine knows that her father was a powerful sorcerer...she just didn't know how powerful...or that she possessed that same power.

Learning to trust one another Sunshine and Con are able to overcome many challenges that are theirs. Con helps Sunshine learn about her powers and just how far she can go with them. Can they defeat the evil Bo, or will they die at his hands? Will they stay friends once the threat is over?

I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to read a book about vampires where they weren't totally hot and charming, but where their laugh makes your spine tingle, and they look horrible. Ashy skin, creepy color, literally the stuff nightmares are made of. I know that sounds crazy...but it seems like every book that has contained a vampire since "Twilight" came out have been incredibly hot and charming.

I gave this book 5 stars!


"Torment" is the second book in the Fallen books written by Lauren Kate. I must warn you there are spoilers if you haven't read "Fallen" yet.

When we last left Luce, Daniel and Cam all Hell had broken loose at Sword and Cross...literally. Now Luce is being whisked away to yet another new school where Daniel thinks she will be long as she follows the rules. The only thing is he won't tell her why. Little does she know that she is being hunted by more then just the good and evil angels but a whole lot of people. Now that she knows that she has lived several lifetimes Luce is eager to find out what those secrets those lifetimes held. She wants Daniel to tell her, but if he does it will kill her.

Along the way at Shoreline she meets new friends and discovers her ability to read the "shadows". Her friends help her with this new talent and get themselves in trouble along the way. Some things she learns has her head spinning, like why would Daniel and Cam be working together, and how she and Daniel are looked up to by everyone. Another war is brewing...this time there is one person who can tip the balance...Luce thinks it's Daniel...I personally think that it is Luce (just my opinion). Luce is also kept away from Daniel, her family, and her friends back home. She is contstantly tormented by her past, Daniel's keeping secrets from her, and what her future may entail.

The ending of the book will leave you spell bound and wondering why authors can't write any faster :)! I was SHOCKED...but it works! Unfortunatly now we have to wait until next fall to find out if Daniel can find Luce and what secrets she unlocks!

I gave this book 5 stars! LOVED IT!


Okay so apparently last time this review never showed up...don't know why...oh well! This book is written by a wonderful new writer Lauren Kate. In this book we meet Lucinda Price, aka Luce. Luce has recently been removed from a private school and sent to a reform school of sorts where she meets all sorts of interesting people. The first one she meets, she thinks she instantly knows...but how could that be? Plus Daniel, the guy is a real jerk, hot as all get out, but a jerk none the less! Luce however can't resist this pull to him, and he seems to be avoiding her like the plauge. Then enter in Cam...another hot bad boy (the school is full of them). Suddenly Luce finds herself the object of his affection, and Daniel suddenly shows up trying to protect her.

Luce has also been hounded her whole life by these "shadows", they can touch her and skim around her, and terrify her. Whenever they are around nothing good happens! SHe seems to be the only one who can see them...or is she? Things keep intesnsifying between her and Daniel and her and CAm...which one to choose? Suddenly Luce finds out things that will shatter her world! Not only that but there is a war between good and evil brewing and Luce finds herself right in the middle of it. Who will die? Who will win?

I gave this book 5 stars...I couldn't put it down! There is so much adventure, excitement, and of course some romance.

The Clockwork Angel

I have been waiting FOREVER for this book it seems like. This is the highly anticipated prequel to "The Mortal Instruements" series by Cassandra Clare. All I can say is beware of spoilers in this review...I may not be able to contain myself!

In this book we meet Tessa Gray who has left America in search of her brother somewhere in London. When he fails to meet her at the docks but instead "sends" the Dark Sisters, Tessa knows something isn't quite right. Suddenly Tessa finds herself thrust into a world of Downworlders only to find that she herself is one as well. She has the rare ablilty to transform herself into another person at will. What's more the Magistar, a shadowy figure will stop at nothing to gain her power for himself.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to help her is she will use her powers to help them. Soon she finds herself fascinated and torn by two men who just happen to be friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret and Will whose blue eyes are striking, but his volatile moods keep everyone but Tessa away. As they are drawn deeper into the heart of a horrible plan that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes she may have to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. That may be the most dangerous magic of all.

I LOVED this book! I do have to admit that it took me a few chapters to get into it, but once it clicked it was all I could do to put it down! I loved the characters! Tess is strong and yet so feminine too. It was fun to see how the openness of the Shadowhunters and their way of life was so against her upbringing! Will is most definitly the great grandfather to Jace Herondale (swoon)! So moody and onry and just when I think he will open up and share...he shuts up and becomes arogant and rude again! Definite gene passed on there! There is something about him that I haven't yet figured out...I think it could be something sinister...I guess only time will tell! Jem, aka, James...I liked him...but I can't picture Tessa with him at all! He is so kind and fragile and...well all around nice guy, but I just don't see it!

This book left me wanting more...of course! There were a few things that bugged me though...1-I really wanted to know what the deal with the Clockowrk Angel was...I really have to wait to find out? Maybe it was really obvious and I just didn't see it! 2- Her brother...not gonna say why because it is a total spoiler but let me say this "REALLY?" 3- Humans can't just disappear...not unless they know some pretty hard core magic or something...just sayin'! There were other things, but alas I can't remember them all!

I know a book is good when I go to bed and dream about it several nights in a row! I give this book 5 stars! Now we just have to wait until...January (I think) for "City of Fallen Angels"...maybe we will get more answers...I know we'll get A LOT more Jace....WAHOOO!!!
