Share Your Soul

Share Your Soul

Rachel Carrington

Synopsis from Amazon:
On the fifth anniversary of my murder, I took action against inaction. I set out to find what I wanted the most—revenge. Others warned me that the whole project could be risky, but getting even with my killer husband seemed worth the danger. Turned out, I made an appointment with the Angel of Death. Perfect.

I've always had a weak spot for bad-boy, rocker types but Gabriel the bad-boy angel surpassed my fantasies. He looked like Bon Jovi in his long hair days, which destroyed my ability to concentrate. Plus, he claimed he could help me only if I trusted him. The last man I put my faith in shot a bullet through my heart. How the heck could I trust the Angel of Death?

So anyway, I told Gabriel that I needed retribution before I could move on. He granted me three days in a mortal body to gain closure. Great offer except for one thing—my dear husband had already been found not guilty so he couldn't be tried again. No hope of ever putting him behind bars…at least not for shooting me. I also had no idea where the loser had dumped my body. How was I supposed to get vengeance?

After that, things got really complicated. I had to find dirt on my jerk of a husband while placing my faith in the Angel of Death and ignoring the forbidden things he did to my phantom heart and loaner body. Yeah, the whole situation sounded weird to me, too, but what was a misplaced spirit to do except roll with it?

My Review:
While I feel that the feelings between Gabriel and Olivia grew extremely fast, I enjoyed the story that Rachel Carrington creates for her readers. From the beginning, I had hoped for the outcome of the end and was glad that I was close to what really happened. The plot of the story is not overused like vampires falling in love with humans have been lately, and was interested through the whole story. I also read this novella within two sittings, before and after work never really wanting to stop. The only downfall for this story is that it is only a novella, and I hope that Rachel Carrington will one day go into their future. I am not sure what the other novellas in the series are about, but I am hoping Olivia and Gabriel will at least be mentioned within the next story. Share Your Soul was an easy read, and I would recommend to others. My rating for this book is 4 stars.

Identity Break (Identity Quest) (Volume 1)
 by Stifyn Emrys

Book Description taken from amazon
How far would you go to find yourself? Imagine everything you thought you knew about yourself turned out to be a lie, and you didn’t know who was telling the truth. Imagine you possessed a secret so dangerous that, if it were exposed, it would reshape the entire world. What would you do if that secret were your very identity? In almost every way, Palo Vista seems like a typical California city, with office buildings, schools, and homes sprawled out across suburbia, filled with families making a life for themselves at the dawn of the new millennium. But two seniors at Mt. MacMurray High are about to find out that nothing is as it seems. Jason Nix is a star athlete and honors student who can’t seem to remember anything about his childhood. Elyse Van Auten is a budding artist from a broken home whose father left her mother two years ago - or so she’s been led to believe. Like most teens entering adulthood, Elyse and Jason just want to find out who they really are. For them, however, the stakes go far beyond their own personal quest. Join them on a journey of self-discovery that becomes a desperate fight for survival against enemies determined to conceal the truth … and find out what happens when that fight becomes personal.

My Review

This book took me for a lot of twist and turns I think because you never knew what to expect. There was very much thought on this plot and the characters, I never read anything from this author before and I loved I mean loved how he writes! Each character had a mean and a purpose and the plot followed into the characters. Jason was I guess you could say the perfect kid, had a great life was the star person in high school he just had one problem he couldn't remember where he came from. With Jason there is also Elyse they make the perfect team. They travel through this journey together trying to figure out where they came from. If you love a good mystery and two people trying to find themselves then this is the book for you. Travel into Jason's and Elyse's world.

New Blood: Vampire in the City

New Blood: Vampire in the City (Book One)

Synopsis of book from amazon.com:

Emma Hammond is a normal young woman living in New York City whose life changes forever when one misstep brings her very close to death. Luckily, Alex Thompson, a handsome stranger (who also happens to be a vampire), jumps in to save her, turning Emma into a vampire. She quickly discovers the numerous advantages (no more allergies, glasses, or acne) and slight drawbacks (wanting to eat her boyfriend) of joining the ranks of the creatures of the night. But Emma soon finds out her new undead life isn't all it's cracked up to be when she gets pulled in to an age-old dispute between two feuding vampire clans.

My Review

Right away I was hooked to this book, even though it is simply written and contains a plot that has been used by other authors in the past. Within my first sitting, I read the first nine chapters and really wished to continue, but my class schedule would not let me. Once returning home from classes, I was able to finish the book within two sittings. This two hundred page book will be a fast read for readers who enjoy vampire stories, and if you enjoyed New Blood you would be pleased to find out there is a second book to Emma’s story called Wild Blood. While the plot of the story is not unique, the characters within this book are very likable  At the end of New Blood you’ll want to read more just to know what will happen with Emma’s love life.  All in all, this book is a fantastic read for those who have a passion of books involving vampires. I would gladly suggest this author’s work to any of my fellow readers, as I look forward to reading book two.
