Review: Claimed by Light by Reese Monroe

Check out my review of Forged by Fate (Bound by Hades #1) Check out my review of Marked by Hades (Bound by Hades #2) I really had enjoyed the first two novels in the series and I was interested to see how the series came to a conclusion. Claimed by Light was Halena’s story. The French Guardian who didn’t believe in Mates. So of course she is shaken when she feels an instant connection to Slade, who has just sold his soul to demons and is on the fast-track to becoming one himself. This novel was definitely interesting. We get to the conclusion of the Guardian’s battle against the demons and beating them to the artifacts. There was lots of action, suspense, and death. My only complaint is that the ending didn’t feel like the ending of a series to me. I actually had to double check as to whether it was the last novel. There just felt like there were a few too many loose-ends that needed tying. Halena was the main character in this novel. It was nice to see her character in more depth as opposed to the glimpses of her personality we see in the first two novels. To be honest, this novel really changed my opinion about her character. She went through a lot and closed herself off so valid reasons and I came to […]

Review: Marked by Hades by Reese Monroe

Check out my review of Forged by Fate (Bound by Hades #1) I really enjoyed the other novel in the series, Forged by Fate, and I was actually surprised to see that the next novel in the series was about Justin. I honestly was just expecting a continuation of the first novel, but I was no less excited to get to reading it. As I mentioned, Marked by Hades is Justin’s story. Justin, as we saw in the first novel, is convinced that he doesn’t need a mate and that he won’t have one. That is, until he sees a mysterious girl while out one day. That mysterious girl’s name is Yvonne, and she woke up with absolutely no recollection of who she was except her name. And as she soon finds out, her touch is lethal: anyone or any living thing that she touches turns to ash. This novel was better than the first one, in my opinion. Monroe’s writing style developed a bit, and it didn’t have that initial boring lag that Forged by Fate had. This one jumped head first into the plot, and what an amazing plot it was. There were many surprises and events that I never wanted to put this book down. It was filled with demons artifacts, kidnappings, and even a guest appearance from Lucifer. In terms of plot line and entertainment, this […]

Blog Tour: Embrace (Entangled Line) Release

Favorite Quote(s): “He’d been open and brutally honest about who he was, more what he was. All his actions showed he had her best interest in heart, to the point that he was downright bossy and controlling. Sure, it pissed her off a little, but mostly…it felt good. Someone totally dedicated to her, focused on her well-being. For so many years she’d had to take care of herself–the only one she’d ever been able to depend on.” Favorite Character: Sadie. First Line: “‘Just because you can’t find a girl and have sex doesn’t mean I have to live an abstinent life.’ Justin slid his shirt over his head.” My Musings: Forged by Fate is a new novel in Entangled’s new adult imprint, Embrace. When I first read the synopsis, I was intrigued. I hadn’t read anything like it before, and I was excited to dive in. “’I’m the Gatekeeper of Hades.’ He bowed his head. ‘And you…are my Mate.’” Forged by Fate is a mix between mythology and angels and demons. It builds a world where Guardians guard the gates to Hell, preventing demons from running a muck. However, Guardians can’t come into their full powers until they find their mate. Young genius Sadie discovers that she is destined to be the mate of Gate Keeper, Theo, no matter how much she tries to resist it. Throw in a demon who keeps […]
