Book Review: The Dark Hunters Vol. 1 by Sherrilyn Kenyon

6599344

Series Status:  Book 1 of 4

Goodreads Synopsis:

In the war against vampires, mankind has only one hope: The Dark-Hunters. Ancient warriors who died of brutal betrayal, the Dark-Hunters have sworn themselves into the service of the goddess Artemis to protect us.
It’s a pact with pretty good perks. Immortality, power, psychic abilities, wealth and a cool wardrobe. But it comes with a few drawbacks: fatal sun poisoning and a new, irreparable dental problem. But aside from the fangs and nocturnal lifestyle, it’s not so bad.
Until Kyrian meets the most frightening thing imaginable. An accountant who’s being hunted by one of the most lethal vampires out there. If Amanda Devereaux goes down, so does he and no offense, he doesn’t want to die (hence the whole immortality thing). And he doesn’t want humanity dead either which is a good thing for us since he and Amanda are all that stands between us and oblivion. Let’s hope they win.

Book Review: Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon

6696602

Series Status:  Book 1 of 8

Goodreads Synopsis:

At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead.

But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.

As if starting high school isn’t hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?

My Review:

I actually really enjoyed this book.  Towards the beginning it was a little slow and it couldn’t hold my attention for very long, but towards the end of the book it started revving up and I couldn’t put it down.  Zombies aren’t really my cup of tea, but there are always exceptions to those kinds of rules.  This book just happens to be one of them.

Here is where you can read Chapter 1 of Everlasting Kingdom.  Please tell me what you think and don’t necessarily trash it, just give me some constructive criticism if you believe I need to make some changes to my book.  You can read it on Wattpad or Quotev (which ever you prefer).

James is the author of THE MAZE RUNNER trilogy and THE 13TH REALITY series. He also published a series (beginning with A DOOR IN THE WOODS) with a small publisher several years ago. He lives and writes in the Rocky Mountains.
My Review:
I honestly really liked this book. I think that fans of The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins would really like to dive into this book. It is almost just like The Hunger Games, but without all of the children killing each other. I really want to continue on with this series and can’t wait to read the next book.

Book Review: For Magnus Chase: Hotel Valhalla, Guide to the Norse Worlds by Rick Riordan

28857930

Status in Series:  Companion Novel

Goodreads Synopsis:

So you’ve made it to Valhalla. Now what? This “who’s who” guide to the gods, goddesses, and other important figures of Norse mythology was commissioned by Helgi, who, after more than a millennium as manager of Hotel Valhalla, became fed up with answering the same questions from newly deceased heroes at check-in. The profiles provide essential stats, interviews, and personal reflections so you can identify the gods and avoid those awkward introductions. Handy facts about other beings round out this go-to tome. You’ll never see Ratatosk as a cute little rodent or confuse a dwarf with an elf ever again!

Book Review: Rise of the Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

33386034

Series Status:  Book 3 of 4

Goodreads Synopsis:

Deep beneath the waves, King Triton’s powerful trident has passed through the magical barrier that surrounds the Isle of the Lost—keeping villains in and magic out. And when Mal’s longtime rival Uma, daughter of Ursula, gets wind of this, she can’t believe her luck. The tide has dragged in something good for a change, and Uma is determined to get her wicked hands on it. But first, she needs a pirate crew.

A storm is brewing back in Auradon, and when Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay hear that the trident has been washed away, they realize they’ll have to find it before anyone from the Isle does. Luckily, they seem to have a talent for locating missing magical objects.

As Uma readies for the high seas alongside Harry, son of Captain Hook, Gil, son of Gaston, and the toughest rogues on the Isle of the Lost, the reformed villains of Auradon devise their own master plan. And with King Ben away on royal business, they won’t have to play by all the rules. Using bad for good can’t be totally evil, right?

The thrilling, perilous race to the trident puts old friends—and current enemies—against each other with the future of Auradon on the line. Both teams might like to make waves, but only one will come out on top of this one.

And, yes, he has fought for his life against mountain lions and he did perform on stage as the World’s Youngest Hypnotist. Buy him a drink sometime, and he’ll tell you all about it.

 

My Review:

There is only one word to describe this graphic novel.  EPIC!  This is so awesome.  I really want to read the rest of this series to see what happens next.  The illustrations were wonderful and it had almost all of my favorite Marvel Characters.
