PJ Review: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Home > Review > Forever by Maggie Stiefvater Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal RomancePara Element: WerewolvesSeries: Wolves of Mercy Falls Book 3PreOrder Online:  Amazon.comStalk the Author: Web | Twitter ARC given to me by the publisher. A quick forward before reading this review: Maggie Steifvater the author of Forever is an extremely talented author and I would recommend her writing to anyone. Her words are like a delicacy as if she weighs each one out for the proper weight and flavor. This is the first book I didn’t like of hers and it was mostly because the characters behaved in ways that didn’t relate with me. I only recommend this review if you have read the two books before, Shiver & Linger and please don’t throw something at me…once again just my opinion. PJ’s QUICKIE POV:This really pains me, but I did not enjoy FOREVER. This is a book that I have been looking forward to reading for a year. One year and ten days actually. So, I should have just powered through it…loved on it, rolled within the pages and then lamented on the end of an era. Sadly though, it was not to be. I actually had a hard time finishing this one. Don’t hate me, but it’s true. Stiefvater’s token prose actually grated on my nerves and her descriptions dragged instead of titillated. I was literally yawning...

PJ Review: Ascension (Dark Breed #1) by Sable Grace

Home > Review > Ascension (Dark Breed #1) by Sable Grace Genre: Adult, Paranormal RomanceParanormal Element: Everything! Mythology, Gods, Vampires, Shifters…Series: Dark Breed #1Order Online:  Amazon.comStalk the Author: Web | Twitter Digital copy from Netgalley.com for Review PJ’s QUICKIE POV:Ascension strikes fast, hits you hard as it thrusts you into a very dark world that had my imagination spinning. It wasn’t a world I want to visit anytime soon, either. Despite the darkness, I was quickly taken in, I wanted to find out more about this violent and scary place. There was so much going on in this novel, new breeds of paranormals, mixed races…it was quite fascinating. And then with the intermix of the Greek gods and goddesses I thought it might be too much, but it worked and made for one of the most creatively spun Urban Fantasy novel that I’ve read in awhile. The one drawback of the novel was that it really did drag towards the end of the novel. It was fast fast fast — and then came to a screeching halt. It would have been PERFECT if it would have kept up that high intensity pace. And the thing about pace – if you don’t get it right it will bring a good idea crashing. REVIEW:Kyana is half Vampyre, half Lychen a dark breed of an unholy joining for two species. Her kind,...

PJ Review: Dark Life by Kat Falls

Home > Review > Dark Life by Kat Falls Genre: Young Adult, Science FictionSciFi Element: Underwater, DystopianSeries: Dark Life #1Order Online:  Amazon.comStalk the Author: Facebook | Goodreads Purchased audio book from audible.com PJ’s QUICKIE POV:Prepare for a wild ride with this one! I was completely taken by surprise when on a whim I added this one to my library. DARK LIFE introduced me to a new world teeming with rich imaginings, mystery and fast-paced action. I fell in love with Ty and his underwater world from the moment I finished the first page. This is not one to pass by! REVIEW:After cataclysmic events raised the water levels of the world, a large portion of the human race has taken to live in stacked living areas, what seems to be high-rises. They cram into apartments and small living places, unable to farm or own land.  Pioneers and wanna-be land owners have found their new frontiers at the bottom of the ocean. You can own land underneath the ocean, have room to grow and start a family and even own livestock. Yet, like all unknowns, undersea dwellers are thought odd to the people that reside Topside. Their unknown world is suspect and they are lorded over by the Topside government, forced to provide food for the people above in exchange for oxygen.Ty’s dream is to own his own plot of land...

PJ Review: Outside In by Maria V. Synder

Home > Review > Outside In by Maria V. Synder Genre: Young Adult, Science FictionSciFi Element: Space, DystopianSeries: Inside Series #2Order Online:  Amazon.comStalk the Author: Web | Goodreads Review copy provided by Amazon Vine in exchange for a review. PJ’s QUICKIE POV:Just as good as the first, OUTSIDE IN plummets you into an alternate science fiction reality that is so believable, I just couldn’t get enough.  The way Synder’s mind works fascinates me. Her rich imagination and unique characterization is a gem among the writing world. If you have not read a book by Maria V. Synder do so now, you will not be disappointed. REVIEW:OUTSIDE IN begins where we left off with it’s predecessor. Trella has fought and won freedom for the people of Inside and a committee has been formed from the rebels. They are there to make the decisions, vote on topics and get things done Inside. But, unfortunately most of the decisions are taking too long as the members disagree and Lowers and Uppers still pit against one another. Trella is there as a consultant because she did not want to take as much responsibility as they wanted to give her and soon the committee position is too much also. The politics of the situation overwhelms her and all she yearns for is to get back in the pipes and away from all the bickering...
