Review: Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare

The Infernal Devices are without pity.

The Infernal Devices are without regret.

The Infernal Devices are without number

The Infernal Devices will never stop coming.

Tessa Grey is preparing for what should be the most joyous day of her life…..her wedding to Jem. Tessa loves Jem without question but there is still part of her that loves Will.

Though she tries to shut out her feelings for Will, it is hard to section off a part of your soul that only one other person can touch but somehow Tessa does it.

All the Shadowhunters at the London Institute are preparing for the wedding to take place when Gabriel Lightwood shows up begging to see his brother Gideon. Their father has turned into a giant man eating worm and he needs their help to stop him.

The London Institute agrees to help Gabriel and they all descend on the Lightwood home but soon discover something more disturbing than a giant worm….a warning scribbled on the walls of what was once Benedict Lightwoods study:

Review: Bittersweet Seraphim (Seraphim #2) by Debra Anastasia

Hell can’t seem to keep Satan Jack in….so now it’s earth’s turn to try. What could possibly be worse than being the keeper of Hell?

How about being stuck on earth as a human without the angel he loves?

Satan Jack had been the keeper of Hell for years and he’s good at what he does.

He keeps things running in an orderly fashion….eternity as he knows it is good. He likes Hell. But that was before he met Emma, an angel trying to save the kidnapped God.

When Jack meets Emma, all bets are off…Hell doesn’t stand a chance at keeping Jack so long as Emma is part of his life.

But when Satan Jack’s one true love ends up trapped in Hell because of him, he is cast out back to earth as a human.

Review: Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia

The Devil made me read it!

The Devil, AKA: Satan Jack, guards the gates of hell, admitting all the evil this world has to give. While Satan Jack sucks down cigarettes and souls, Seraph Emma is being tossed out of Heaven.

Emma is sent as a Christmas Angel to the lost, self-loathing vampire, Jason, in hopes of redeeming his soul. The task seems impossible but soon the vampire begins to come around and have faith.

In Heaven, a rogue angel (Everett) partners with the Devil to trap God in Hell leaving himself in charge of Heaven. With God trapped, Everett begins tossing al the seraphim out of Heaven and unleashing unthinkable evils on Earth.

For Emma, Everett’s evil is personal. There is a history between the two that spreads throughout their human lives into Heaven. Emma refuses to let Everett win and to give up on Jason…..even if that means she must travel through Hell (literally) to rescue God. Continue reading “Review: Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia”

One Holy Hell

Crushed Seraphim is One Holy hell of a year old! It’s been one year since I stayed up all night to watch my debut novel go live. When it finally popped up on Amazon, I peed my pants a little. I never knew I wanted to be an author, but holding that book was a huge tearjerker for me. I wrote this story as a way to tell the tale of a woman that was a cursing, smart-mouthed nightmare who also happened to have the courage to save the world. It was book one in the Seraphim Series and the conclusion, Bittersweet Seraphim, will be dropping in Fall 2012.

There was definitely a stand out gentleman from this book. His name is Satan Jack and in my head? He looks just like Johnny Depp. Jack even has his own Twitter (@Satan_Jack ) where he flirts with readers! He’s staked a claim in quite a few panties since his unveiling and he’s proud.

Here’s the summary:

How does a foul-mouthed angel end up as the last hope for all of Heaven and Earth? Continue reading “Guest Post: Crushed Seraphim by Debra Anastasia”

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor

What happens when the good becomes the evil? What if everything you know about heros and villains was wrong?

In Laini Taylor’s debut YA fantasy novel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, everything you know about traditional good vs. evil cliches are wrong. This is the story of Karou and Akiva. Karou is a demon–Akiva, is an angel. In this series, the angel is the devil in disguise.

Karou is not like other girls. She speaks 20+ languages, natural peacock blue hair, and a body covered in tattoos including two mysterious eyes on her palms. She lives in Prague and attends an art institute by day, but when the sun goes down–her real life begins.

Karou works for a black market wish-monger named Brimstone. Karou’s job is to collect teeth–human teeth, animal teeth, and every kind of teeth in between. Brimstone is a creature from an odd, alternative world of demons and monsters. When he calls on Karou she is transported all over the world to collect, buy, sell, and trade teeth–in exchange Brimstone gives Karou unlimited wishes (within reason). Brimstone is the only family Karou has ever known…he has trained her and raised her like his own daughter. But something inside of Karou is missing….a part of her feels empty–a part she cannot wish away. Continue reading “Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor”
