Review ~ Home for the Holidays (NHS 6.5) by Jeaniene Frost


Home for the Holidays is a short story and a very important addition to Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series. It can be found in an Anthology called The Bite Before Christmas and it's not less amazing than any full-length Frost book.


Title: Home for the Holidays
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Huntress #6.5
Released: October 25th 2011 by William Morrow

Cat and Bones may long to wrap presents and set up a tree, but this Christmas, an evil vampire and long-buried family secrets will threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer.

AVAILABLE NOW: Amazon & Barnes & Noble





Lucifer's Bouncing Balls!!!!!

Everyone who knows me knows that I'm sucker for Cat & Bones stories. Yes I have favorite books and less favorite in the series, but no matter what, I'll probably end up loving it - except if one of them dies... forever. -

I'm not a big fan of short novels. Actually I hate it when an author writes short novels for her series, that takes place in the middle of the series and it's contains a lot of shocking, definitely not expected news. I want them in the long books! I've never read any short novels like these, 'cuz I was glad if I could get the long books...

Anyways, I gave it a shot after I read the first three chapters, what Jeaniene published on her blog. I would have been a complete idiot, if I don't get the entire novel!!!

Maybe we, Frost fans, can skip the prequel with Bones, and the story about a wedding - which are probably not less exciting, than her other books - if we can't get them, but THIS IS A MUST READ!!

I can tell already, that If you read those three chapters, you probably would kill for to get you're hands on the whole book! I swear I liked this “short” story better than One Grave at a Time!!

So Let's talk about the story! What can you expect??

For Ian fans... hes has a larger role play in this story, than he ever had in any NHS book!!! w00t w00t!! And He's as snarky as always has been and it's funny as hell!! Beyond that, we can see His eternal, true loyalty side. I think I was an Ian fan sice OGAAT but here... he's definitely got his hooks in me. AND "he has something in his pants that Cat never expected..." Neither did I !! And at the end... my God... at the end there's a huge... i said, HUGE twist, that will shake his and Bones' life the most, but basically everyone's who's related to them somehow...


For Cat fans... she's as amazing as always. She shows us again, that she would do ANYTHING for her lover, Bones. She would Die for him... She's less sarcastic and funny, more smart, advised, than ever. Which is perfectly fits to the plot, because I think I could'nt be sarcastic  and funny in a situation, than she's been here. She's about to loose almost everyone she loves and it seems, there's no escape from it, this time. At first, the problem is just, that some new guy gets way more attention, than her. This new guy seems to be part of the close family... not hers, but Bones'. And it makes everything so much harder to handle, for her... and for everyone.

For Bones fans... This is his two hundred and forty fifth BIRTHDAY!! *sings Happy Birthday to Bones* The story starts almost as the first book did. I relly like this kind of twists. I'm trying to keep this review spoiler free, and since the first three chapters are available for free here, I let you find out what did I meant. It's for your own good... trust me! So, back to Bones... We ge to know lot of facts about his past, his family, thanks to the Birthday gift that Anette gives him. The gift is a living... - well, sort of - being and it's sooo much Bones, but still different. You will found out who is it at the end of the Chapter Three. I think, this is the hardest fight he ever fought. I honestly don't know, how will Jeaniene overwhelm this drama in her next books in the Series without killing someone - and that's not gonna happen -. Bones' world gonna turn upside down And his life becomes the worst nightmare he could ever dream...

For Cat & Bones fans... There's a lot of romantic act and sentences. As we could expect, this story is not filled with erotic scenes, like the previous NHS books, there's maybe two short scenes. But the romance between them is again breathtaking. This is their worst battle yet. 

For demon fans... YES!! I'm happy to tell you, that basically the whole story related to the demons. And I was happy as hell because of this, 'cuz my new favorite supernatural creature are the demons. And the big bad wolf... err... the big bad enemy is also a demon! Whooohooo! 

OVERALL: Jeaniene's short Christmas story with Cat & Bones is filled with HUGE, Interesting twists and turns, and all of them are related to Bones' family line... And the final twist was totally not expected (if you expected that, than please tell me and I'll call you GOD!!... or I will just incriminate you with that you have some serious connection with Ms.Frost.) I have this book in kindle format, but i've heard, that the hardcover is stunningly beautiful, and so worth to buy it. So Santa Claus, if you hear me.. that's want I want for Christmas!!! I tell you again, THIS IS A MUST READ!!!
So, everyone, go and buy it!  It won't disappoint you!

Review ~ Madison's Life Lessons by Gracen Miller


Today I brought you the awesome Prequel to Pandora's Box ( Road to Hell series #1) from an amazing author, Gracen Miller.


Title: Madison's Life Lessons
Author: Gracen Miller
Series: Road To Hell  #0.5
Released: Nov. 13, 2011 by Decadent Publishing

Read the first 3 chapters HERE
Fate can mark one early for a particular future. 
Madison Wescott’s life is Hell on earth. Her father, a Baptist Preacher, convinces her she’s morally corrupt when men notice her blooming beauty. She strives to be unnoticeable, but nothing satisfies her condemning parents.

And sometimes fate has nothing to do with one’s potential. 
Temptation rears its head when Micah Dominus visits her father’s church on Christmas morning, but she is unprepared for her physical reaction to him. Frightened by her own emotions, she is grateful she’ll never see him again. But when he shows up again at a friend’s funeral, and at other times in her life, she’s swayed by his charisma. Micah becomes her white knight through the good and bad, but can they create the perfect life together? Or has she just located the beginning of the Road to Hell?

Supernatural forces more powerful than fate can claim one’s destiny…


AVAILABLE NOW: Smashwords & Amazon



Madison's Life Lessons is the PREQUEL to Pandora's Box. Read my review for Pandora's Box Here. Gracen posted some of the lessons on her blog before PB released. Like she says, " Every story has a beginning... " Life lessons are showing you, what happened with Madison before her journey begins in Pandora's Box and what decisions lead her to where she is in PB. They're as AWESOME as the book, they'll blow your mind, I promise! 

I think you already figured out, that i Loved the Life Lessons. Uhm... No... Love is not the right word, 'cuz i started to read the 1st lesson and I didn't even take a break until I reached and finished the last. It was 7am. when i finished and commented on all of them and I waited from week to week to read a new one, like a hungry person waiting for a piece of bread...See? I don't love it... I'm obsessed by Madison's journey!!! Now there are 35 Lessons in this book 

Overall: Madison’s Life Lessons started like an ordinary love story. But this book isn't just that simple. This is a story filled with intrigue, misery, romance and most of all mystery. A naive, teenage girl's journey which led her to a world that no one would want to experience. Madison's Life Lessons is an outstanding novel. And this is just the beginning.

Review ~ The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


I'm back with another review! (happy,huh?) This time I bring you a nation divided into 12 districts and a Capitol. Yes that's right. The Hunger Games!



Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Series: The Hunger Games  #1
Released: 31st 2008 by Scholastic Press

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before—and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

So. I had a push-and-pull relationship with this book. I had heard so much about this book that I just had to get it. But i have huge collection of unread books and this wasn't at the top. However after several months i finally convinced myself to pick it up. 5 days ago, in the morning, I did, i've read barely half page and something came up, so i had to put it down. Then later, i started again from the beginning, i've read 2 pages and someone interrupted me...again. I was like, "GOD! The big daddy up there doesn't want me to read this bloody book..." . 2 days ago i picked up again, logged out from everywhere, turned on my instrumental music (ya, usually i listen instrumental musics -Two Steps from Hell, Immadiate Music, Brand X Music - while i read books.) and started to read from the 2nd page. In about 8 hours i finished and was stunned. I can say, that i'm addicted to the story, the charaters, the world of Hunger Games. I'm trying to leave out the shocking turning points from this review.

So let's see what's in the book...

There are No POV changes in this book. All first person present from Katniss. Which was a little bit weird for me, because i think (if my memory works fine this time...) this was the first story told by first person present i've ever read. But i quickly got used to it.

At the beginning Katniss tell us that she's living in the District 12 in Panem, the country that rose up out of the ashes of a place that was once called North America, -where the people can starve to death in safety- with her sister and mother. Each district has their own job. In the middle of the country there is the shining Capitol -ringed by the 12 districts- and people who rule the country. Katniss brakes the rules, and goes to hunt in the woods with her friend Gale to save her family from starving. But this is an even darker day, than usual for two families. This is the day of choosing 2 kids for the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games. Katniss also tell us that, once there was a 13th district, but it has been destroyed. But the Dark Days gave them the Hunger Games. 

The rules of the Hunger Games are simple: Every year the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl (called tributes) to compete in the Hunger Games. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death in a huge outdoor arena. The last tribute standing wins... - And i thought my life sucks... - The Games are televised live by the state.

From District 12 Katniss and Peeta are the chosen ones. One of them is volunteer. You probably asking, why would want anyone to be a part of the Game. The answer is simple. To save his/her family.

One of the most important things you have to do is to get sponsors. They can send gifts into the arena to their "protégé". If someone doesn't have sponsors then it's basically a dead man. These gifts could be lifesaver and the mentors can decide what gifts can you get and when will you get it. To get sponsors the tributes have to show to the people that they're worth it. They can win the Game. Thats why they get stylists. Katniss gets Cinna, he's new in the Capitol (as we can tell from how he treats Kat).

Before the Game begins every tribute get interviewed. It's another chance to get sponsors. Haymitch -Katniss's and Peeta's mentor- has a hard time with teaching Katniss how to impress the other people with her speach. Haymitch wants Katniss and Peeta to be by each other’s side every minute in public, even though they don't like eachother.

The tributes also can training their skills. All the tributes practice together. On the third day of taining, they have to perform in private what they're are capable of, what's their best skill before the Gamemakers. They get scores for it.The higher, the better. It's another chance to get sponsors. The Capitol doesn't televise this. So noone else can see what the tributes get their scores for, only the Gamemakers. Katniss shocks them with her act that she doesn't supposed to do. The question is.. Does it cost her best chance to get sponsors or they're gonna give her a good score?


What you can expect once the Game begins? Deaths. That's the cold truth. You won't know all the tributes, their names, how they died, but there a few of them who contact to Katniss, so she's gonna tell how they died, where are they from. Also you can except action. Yes, when the Game starts to be boring ergo noone dies for days the Gamemakers decide that take control of it, like they trying to drive the separated tributes together with generate fire, so they have to fight with eachother. -Those heartless bastards!-

I have to quote from one of my favorite movie:

"In the end there can be only one."

Question is... Can Peeta work with Katniss and help her, so at least one of them could win, or he teams up with other guys or he will be a 'lone wolf' and take out anyone who tries to stop him?

Can Katniss triumph over the others, who are considered to be the best and swear to the team play?

Can the brain win against power?


Let's talk about the characters:

Katniss: She's our tour guide. Actually like i said earlier, it's all first person present, so basically We are Katniss. She's a sixteen years old, very brave and smart girl. In the Game nearly nothing can stop her, she knows exactly how to hunt and how to survive. Her favourite weapon is the bow and damn.. she's pretty awesome with it. She's a very emotional person but rarely shows it, but when someone gets close to her heart, she never let them down. She saves her sister with a decision she makes what leads her to the Game. (Sis.. i highly recommend you to read this book, you have so much to learn from this girl :P)

Peeta: Is a very interesting character!! He's going to the Game with Katniss from District 12. He's not so chatty when we first meeting him. A little later on their way to the capitol, he talks more, but mostly he's argumentative. - I didn't know what to think about him. I was like "He's going to be a 'lone wolf' and trying to kill Kat or he's going to team-up with her and then screw her over??". Well i would have been sure about my later thought, but i got some spoiler, which i'm not going to tell you now, but i can tell you there are parts where i said "Screw him!! I KNEW I KNEW.. why everyone lied to me about him?? C'mon Kat, play Cupido and shot him in his heart with that arrow!!" (okay it's a little morbid, but seriously he would pisses me off if i were Kat). After that who the hell knew that this guy can be funny??? (NO! Don't lie! You didn't expected it either...) -I love his sarcasm. About his skills... well he is a big guy, and for a long time all we know, that he's really strong and that's it. - I tell you something... The military could use him as a pro spy... i swear!-

Gale: - Oooh Gale!! Would you marry me?- He's Katniss's best friend. He lives in District 12 too (obviously). He and Kat are hunt together. He's in the book only at the beginning, but he's so loveable. He got his own sarcasm as well. - I saw the movie cast before i read the book, so i already had a crush on him. 

Rue: She's one of the trubutes. She lived in District 11. She reminds Katniss of her little sister, so they're teaming up with eachother in the arena. And they're doing it well. Rue is smart and has every ability to survive in a jungle.

Cinna: He is Kat's stylist. He's a very kind and extremely creative person. I think he's my favourite character in the book. Seriosly i can't wait to see those dresses in the movie, what he designed. Sure all credits goes to Suzanne for these awesome ideas. I love how this guy treats his "client". So friendly and he gaves smart advices to Katniss. I give you one sentence, only one... 
"I asked for District 12." 
NO ONE EVER asks for D12!! This man Rocks!!

Haymitch: is the only living Hunger Games victor from District 12 and he's the mentor of Katniss and Peeta. (God save them!) Actually this man was able to get a piece of my heart with his first funny action (plummets off the stage and knocks himself unconscious). He's always drunk. Very drunk. But the kids convince him, that they're worth the try and he's helping them, eventually. It took a little much time to see his changes and his smart-head instead of his "give me a bottle of the old Johnny and that will solve the problem." personality, but the wait was worth it!

Now let’s make a short list about “What i liked / didn’t like”

What I liked:

- I absolutely loved the story of this "World".
- How the Hunger Games work. Every little detail, rules, featured events.
- The characters. Even the minor characters has something in them what makes you can not forget them.
- There isn't an easy solution for every problem. They have to fight for it. They have to suffer for even a minute rest.
- Lots of ACTION!! Yes i'm an adrenaline junkie, so bring it on baby!!

What i didn't like:

- There was one thing, i didn't like. Katniss talking about the same thing over and over. And after several times i got tired of it, that i had to read about it AGAIN.

OVERALL: I'm so so so happy that i've read this book. This is one book worth reading. I was afraid that the slowness at the beginning will be annoying and exhausting, but no. I really liked the story, so it turned out well. You know my favourite genre is in between the Urban Fantasy and the Paranormal romance, and i think this was the second (i have no idea what was the 1st...) Dystopia book i've read. And i just falling in love with this genre. I'm looking very much forward to read Catching Fire.

Review ~ Pandora's Box by Gracen Miller




Title: Pandora's Box
Author: Gracen Miller
Series: Road To Hell  #1
Released: August 19th 2011 by Decadent Publishing


Where does the road to Hell begin?
What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?
Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...


~~~
Before you read this book, I Highly recommend you to read
Madison's Life Lessons (read my review here).  This is a PREQUEL  for Pandora's Box. Like Gracen says, " Every story has a beginning... " Life lessons are showing you what happened with Madison before her journey begins in Pandora's Box and what decisions lead her to where she is in PB. They're as AWESOME as the book, they'll blow your mind, I promise! AVAILABLE NOW on: Smashwords & Amazon

WARNING: Adult book 18+...

I am one of the luckiest people in the world, who won an e-book copy of Pandora's Box after it's released. Y'all hate me now, huh? *evil laugh*

I think you already figured out, that i Loved the Life Lessons. Uhm... No... Love is not the right word, 'cuz i started to read the 1st lesson and i didn't even take a break until I reached and finished the 13rd lesson (that was the last back then). It was 7am. when i finished and commented on all of them. Now there are 26 Lessons and i waited from week to week to read a new one, like a hungry person waiting for a piece of bread...See? I don't love it... I'm obsessed by Madison's journey!!!

It's Time to talk about the BIG BANG... THE BOOK!
Oh Hell... this will be a tough challenge, because I want to write a review, which doesn't contains spoilers, but i also want to Shut out those scenes and lines that made my jaw drop...


So... if you LOVE the TV show called Supernatural, you are gonna LOVE this book, too.
No, don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it's a copy of the show, i'm saying, that there were parts that reminded me of the show (like probably most demon hunter story does) and boy... They were awesome!!!

In the beginning of the book We learn about that Amos, Madison's son once was a normal kid and the next day he killed animals and attacked her mother and he was muted. Madison took him to doctors, a priest, she tried use herbs, etc... none of them helped. She talked with a psychic who promised she send help to her, and here comes Phoenix Birmingham, a demon hunter...

Nix and his family have arrived just in time to see Amos was trying to kill Madison. She explained everything she knew to them but she doesn't believe that they could help her and her son.
And of course, she doesn't believe in demons either until... they experience the first attack by a demon and we'll see how powerful Amos is (in that case, if we didn't pee ourselves because of him yet). The demon mentions Micah's name and talks about his return to his family. (personally I did a happy-dance when I read it, it's not a secret that i LOVED him in the lessons... )

On one night a new damon comes for a visit, but it's not just a simple demon, i won't tell it's real ID but i can tell, that it'll shake Madison's life... The demon comes for her and Amos and it won't stop until it gets what it wants...(it's nearly impossible to stop this one...)


We will figure out why Amos turned into a homicidal, muted child from one day to the next and what he is, we'll also know, that Madison isn't exactly human, thanks for her mother's bloodline (ahh that biatch!!). When I read the lessons i was thinking about it, but Gracen has the ability, that she makes you doubt yourself when you read more and in the end it turns out that you were right, but you still surprised by those things as if you've never thought about them before... EVIL woman...evil but also AMAZING!!


At the middle of the book Madison take a fight back and with Amos' help she hunt demons and tries to find out how could she stop their ultimate enemy...


The time goes fast, there are parts when we hop 1 year, it could be scary for you, but don't be afraid, it's awesome and gives more possibility for us to see how the characters are changing, and every chapter brings a new battle or exciting news to us. We also get to see how Amos changing from the scary "I'll rip you into pieces, mommy" chucky to a powerful, and "mom protecting" child. 


There are also POV (point of view) changes which I always love when an author does that... we get the chance to see what's going on in Hell, what the kick-ass sexy demon hunter Nix is thinking about (what'd you think?! Girls and demons and sex and Mads and Mads and Ma...okay okay, you got it.) Mads -Mads is Nix's nickname for Madison (HOW CUTE!)- and Nix feel desire for eachother and there are uhm...parts when they...uhm... can i say they're kissing?? NO!! I CAN'T say more!! Maybe they'll do something else, maybe they don't... YOU have to find out by reading the book *evil grins*

Heading to the end of the book we learn a HUGE secret about our sexy Demon Hunter, Nix.
He isn't just a simple demon hunter, either (totally not expected) and the King has a plan for him... what king, what plan, what is he??? You know the answer... READ THE BLOODY BOOK!!

At the end of the book Nix makes a deal with the devil...And Mads trying to call it off and she prepared to kick in Hell's door, walk in and get what she wants even if it costs her own and other's life...

DEMONS...ACTIONS...PASSION...EMOTIONS...

Phew... that was hard... let's talk about the characters:

Madison: Her father is a preacher (and a real jackass....) her mother is the ultimate biatch in her life. Her father always said, a demon lives in her... so no wonder that when she meets Micah at the age of 14, Madison turns to him for friendship and after years she'll marry him.

And soon she'll regret it... She has a strong will and she's also strong emotionally. She doesn't give up on her son, not even when he's trying to kill her. That is sooo adorable!! I Love her character and i loved how she grew up from that scared child she was at the begining of the lessons...

Amos: Madison's son. When i started to read the book and saw what is he doing i wanted to slap him (i know.. shame on me.. but i'm not a mother and face it.. he earned it... ) and after i wanted to run away from him and i would tell Nix "take him down, pls!! " BUT when he first worried about his mom i was so happy that this apple actually fallen far from the tree in this case... and now i Love him, too. And i Love his qoutes, sometimes they're really funny at another times they're full of love...

Phoenix 'Nix': What could I say about him? HOT, Kick-ass, stubborn, sarky, funny and a REAL womanizer... and emotional...ya who thought??? He doesn't give up on Mads and her son, he stayed to protect them when everyone else would run as far away as it possible. (Sweet, isn't he??) He's ready to sacrifice himself to save the woman and her son... and maybe he does...


Micah: Oooooooh i so LOVED HIM in the lessons... I still do, even he is not (so) lovable in the book... Remember when i talked about how can Gracen make you believe you're far away from the truth?? Ya the same here... I guessed he is what he really is (not the entire part) during the lessons, but there were times when i nearly doubt it...

OVERALL: I started to read Pandora's Box on the same day when the newest book from my favourite series arrived, but i didnt even open it up, because of PB and when i wanted...wanted?? no...i must have put it down i couldn't stand more than 1 hour without reading it... i don't have an ereader, so i'm reading on my PC and it was sux when i had to go out for a long drive and i couldn't bring it with me... Prepare yourself for a story that sucks you in and doesn't let you go until it's not finished... maybe not even then, since after 2 days i'm still talking about this and haven't read the other book... So i guess it says everything how i feel about this book! Oh and ya, you wondering why Pandora's Box is the title? I was wondering about it too.. a LOT! it was a nice touch!! But now i tell you... You'll find out, when you read the book, and i highly recommend to you to do it!! Did i mentioned that this book is frickin' AMAZING???

For Gracen... Go to HELL...and bring up for us the "Hell's Phoenix", NOW!!!! *evil grins*

Thank you so much for the book! :)

Review ~ Spartan Heart Part One by Kristine Cheney



Okay, before we hop to the review I have to admit, that this is my second review, so please be kind! ;)



Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.

Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.

Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle, Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.

Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate and destroy, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart, of its own.

NOTE: Please, consider, that this isn't my usual type of book! I truly recommend this book to the person who is a sucker for romance! Also, PLEASE keep in mind that SH1 and SH2 are really ONE book split in TWO parts. Both books make up the whole story.
This review is only for the PART ONE!

I won this book in a bloghop. My version is an e-book format and it's separated for two parts, but you can purchase in paperback -which is contains both part- as well. My friend reviewed this and convinced me, that I must read it. When She told me I won, My reaction was something like this


I started to read on the same day when I received the e-mail from Kristine, but I finished only 1 day ago. Yes, it took me sooo long to read it, but no, not because of the book, only because I had to do a bunch of things and I always got interrupted.

So let's talk about the story!

I have to admit it... This isn't an ordinary story. Really good idea the spartan warrior who was turned into a statue by an evil oracle and released by a girl's kiss. I love every kind of mithology, especially Grecian ones. Excellent storyline!
The beginning of the book is really sad, so if you're a really sentimental person, I suggest to put a box of kleenex close to you!

They told me not to expect so much action, so I sat down, knowing this won't be my usual read. And yes, it isn't. The first half of the book was a little boring to me, though there were parts that I really liked, for example; when Taryn -Evangeline's best friend- turned down the annoying reporter at the beginning. She's an awesome character, but i'm gonna talk about her later. There was one scene, when Evan suddenly meets her ex- (jackass) boyfriend, Andrew and Evan mentally kicked his ass and basically said him "Go to hell!" That guy completely ruined her romantic life for like... forever... at least she thought that...

After several pages we finally meet Prince Dorieus. 
When I read his background story I was like this


Why? Because I've never ever heard of him before, and whooaw, that story is awesome! Dorieus was the only other Spartan prince(besides his brother) whose history as a soldier was noted. He was cursed and betrayed on the battlefield by Demona, a crazy Oracle.

And here comes Evan into the scene. She finds him after a party night with Taryn, and enchanted by his beauty, Evan kisses the statue (probably she drank too much plus her love life wasn't a fairy tale either...). And the miracle happens! Dorien a.k.a Prince Dorius turns back into a flash and blood man. An Immortal man, actually. Lucky Evan!! After his transformation, Dorien takes her back into her bed. And here is my (not so big) problem. The love scenes were a little bit rush. At first time in effect we were just told there was something between them, and we skipped the whole thing. Okay, I get it, it's a romance and not an erotic book, but I just wanted a little bit more. Fortunetely I got it, even though not as much as I wanted, but there were parts where I can say "okay, it's pretty good." 


The Second half of the book was sooo much more exciting!! Thank God.. oh no wait! Thanks Kristine!! :-)

Oh how I Love the Point of view changes!! If you'll read this, You're gonna LOVE Dorien's POV! I did.


I'm not so romantic type, but seriosly, I LOVE this couple.
I Love, that Dorien chose to remain single in his time and now, centuries later, he found...err... I mean SHE found HIM and now Dorien can't live without her touch. She's stronger because of him, finally she found someone who truly loves her. When she finds out her lover is the staute and immortal, she's not so shocked as I expected. Actually she deals with it within one minute. It could seems a little rush, but personally, I liked it. No annoying resistance from her, she just loves him, accepts him as the way he is.

And after several weeks, Demona comes to ruin everything they've build up. What a bitch! She admit, that she tried to kill Evan, not even once. Demona asks Dorien to spend with 10 days separated from Evan and offers him a deal. She forced him to choose the lesser evil. Nope, I won't tell you what are the options. If you want to know, read the book and find out yourself! *evil laugh* Demona also tells him, that he is gonna become a father. Yep! You heard me, she says that Evan will conceieve. Anyways, while Dorien is away, Evan starts to feel sick. When Dorien returns to her, she finds out, that she's pregnant. With twins! Although she doesn't tell Dorien yet and she asks Taryn to cover her.


The end of the book Part One is a big cliff-hangar. Should I tell you what it is? Some Hint? Okay, I think I can give you something. There comes a stranger to Evan's life and it looks like he/she is a threat to her. I won't give you more, want to know who is it? Grab your own copy and find out!

Okay, let's talk about the characters!

Evangeline is a sweet, cute girl, though she has a strong will. She went through the hell in her life, but finally she found the Love of her Life. It makes her stronger. She's smart, as we can see, when she comes up with an idea to save the sponsors for her museums. She is a lovable character.

Dorien a.k.a Prince Dorieus is a spartan warrior. A Prince, actually.
But maybe I could say he is a Grecian GOD! Smart, sexy, he loves Evan so much. It's funny sometimes, when he doesn't know meaning of something. Where in the Hades this guy came from??
Oh sure... he's an ancient Immortal. He can read minds (be careful with your wicked thoughts!!). He can run as fast as Clark Kent, his senses are extraordinary, like Spiderman's... okay not that awesome, but his hearing, sight, touch, etc. are really good. But let's face it... It was only because he was cursed. Not cool!


Taryn is loyal, helpful, funny... in one word she is an awesome secondary character. She's Evan's best friend. She protects Evangeline.
Demona... well, ya she's a crazy biatch! But a really good developed one. I can see in her everything what I want to see in an evil female villain.

Tommy is basically Dorien's new assistant. We're not see him so many times in the book, but when we do, it's definitely worth it. He's cute and funny. I'd love to read more about him, too.

Okay, now here comes the tough part...
The rating!


NOTE: Please, consider, that this isn't my usual type of book! I truly recommend this book to the person who is a sucker for romance! Also, PLEASE keep in mind that SH1 and SH2 are really ONE book split in TWO parts. Both books make up the whole story.
This review is only for the PART ONE!


Now off to read Part Two!! :-)
