Review: Night’s Darkest Embrace – Jeaniene Frost

Night’s Darkest Embrace is a good story with demons, half and full-blooded, as well as fallen angels. My Night’s Darkest Embrace review: Mara is a strong half-demon on a mission, and that mission just might end up being as fatal for her as it was for her cousin Gloria. Most of Night’s Darkest Embrace happens in a different dimension on earth, where half-demons,  full demons and fallen angels live, but not together in harmony. Full demons feed on half-demons, and fallen angels feed on demons, so there is a certain hierarchy to take into consideration, even if mostly partial demons live in the dimension where Mara is trying to search for the two full demons who kidnapped Gloria years ago.

Review: The Beautiful Ashes – Jeaniene Frost

Review: The Beautiful Ashes – Jeaniene Frost

The Beautiful Ashes is a good foray into Young Adult by one of my favourite authors! Using a different kind of paranormal, while developing both the characters and the story on the go, I was caught in the net Ms. Frost weaved for me. My The Beautiful Ashes review: The Beautiful Ashes is a fast-paced story, written in first person point of view, past tense, from Ivy’s perspective. She hasn’t had just a bad day, she’s had a bad month, and at the start of the story, it seems to just be getting worse! Ivy can see other dimensions superimposed on the dimension here on Earth, and her whole life she has thought she was hallucinating, and that what she […]

Review: Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) – Jeaniene Frost

Review: Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) – Jeaniene Frost

Up From the Grave is the last installment in one of my favorite series ever, and wow, did it take me for a wild ride! My emotions were all over the place, and this review is going to be very hard to write without spoiling anything – but I still promise there are no spoilers. Cat is true to herself in Up From the Grave – always ready to give her all to save the ones she care about, and there is a lot of sacrifice going on in this story. However, a lot can be achieved with a little help from our friends, right? From on crisis to the next, there is never a dull moment, and a lot […]

Review: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) – Jeaniene Frost

Review: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) – Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted is book #2 in the Night Prince series, and it continues showing how complex Vlad is, and what Leila needs to be happy living in his castle. I love how controlling Vlad has always seemed to me, yet with Leila there is something more soft and caring about him. But there are some concessions he won’t make though – saying ‘I love you’ is one of them. Showing the difference between Leila and Vlad based on their life experience, and Leila doesn’t have her powers anymore at the beginning of Twice Tempted, and it seems to her that since she lost her powers, Vlad has lost interest in her. She is sad, and doesn’t know what to do […]

Review: Once Burned (Night Prince #1) – Jeaniene Frost

Review: Once Burned (Night Prince #1) – Jeaniene Frost

In Once Burned, Leila started out like just a weird young woman with a strange power, but she quickly grew to become a very strong opponent, even against powerful vampires! The way she found out that she could link to vampires, and that those who could read minds could talk back at her was hilarious, and I loved how she never flinched in the face of danger. Jeanine Frost always manages to make her female protagonists strong, level-headed and real. I think one of the things I loved the most about Leila was that she used to be a gymnast, and that she turned her childhood bullies’ nick-name for her into a new identity she could use to strengthen herself.
