The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Review

The Girl With the Dragon TattooThe Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)

Millennium Trilogy Book One

By Stieg Larsson

 Mikael Blomkvist was a respected financial journalist but after being found liable by the courts is now a pariah in his field with no idea what he will do with his future he is suprised by an offer to ghost write a memoir of the Vanger family and find out what happened to Harriet Vanger in 1966. When he hits a wall with his research he enlists the help of Lisbeth Salander to research possible connections to Harriet’s disappearance what they come across is far more sinister and intriguing than just the disappearance of one girl.

Let me start with the fact that I have never read this book nor seen the movie, that being said though this is an interesting read it is very predictable. From the very beginning I knew what had happened but this also gave me the chance to say “Ha! I knew it!” The story is quite enthralling though and there are several aspects that leave you guessing which make up for the fact that the main plot is so easily figured out. The romance in this novel is subtle and beautiful, I didn’t care much for Mikael’s character he seemed like a womanizer but Salandar is a remarkable character with several depths and such a strong character you cannot help but like her. The only other problem I found with this book is that it is rather slow, the first half of the book is all build up with very little action or even events taking place but if you can make it through this it turns out to be interesting and is well worth the read.

A Demon Made me Do It By Penelope King Review

A Demon Made Me Do It

Demonblood Series Book One

By Penelope King

 

 Liora was born half demon, one day she was playing in the woods with her firends when two girls came upon them killing Liora’s friends and splitting Liora into human by day and a demon of justice by night, Lucky. Lucky is determined to exact her revenge on the twins who had cursed her into this half-life but Liora only wants to be a normal high school girl and make it through her senior year. But when she meets Kieron her entire world is turned upside down and she begins to fall in love with him knowing that she can never be with anyone because of the life she endures, what she doesn’t realize is Kieron is hiding his own secret and will she be able to forgive him when she finds out that he isn’t what he seems and what happens if he finds out about Lucky?

 

This was a great book if being possessed by a demon isn’t bad enough try sharing an entire life with one and then having to wake up hung-over without having the fun of drinking. Penelope King managed to create an intricate and beautiful story and added just enough twists and turns to make it captivating but not confusing. Not only do the main characters have to deal with falling in love but there are also unexplained murders add on top of it the conflicts each “character” must overcome it is truly remarkable. The author took multiple personalities to a whole new level with this book, it is such an interesting and fun idea I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Neophyte by Emmalee Aple Review

Neophyte

By Emmalee Aple

Addisyn White died two years ago, but three days after her death she was reborn as an angel. Not a full-fledged angel it will take her five years to become one, she is still mostly human and must still go through training with her Link five other angels who will protect her and teach her. There is Hunter her companion in this new life that can read her thoughts and will always share a special connection with and then there is Greysan, handsome and kind and the love of her life. When Addisyn is sleeping on the porch and her Link has left to run an errand a fallen angel stumbles upon her leading to Addisyn being in the greatest danger of her life, and this is just the beginning.

This is an interesting book full of romance and intrigue, the author has taken a new look at angels and most of them are just like all of us. Emmalee Aple creates an intricate and unique world where angels are born or created when a person dies protecting someone else, with elders and companions it is certainly an interesting perspective and then the author brings a beautiful romance to all of this that makes the book worth the read. Though I still have one major question why is Addisyn so important? I am hoping this will be answered in the next book. The only problem I found with this book is that it needs to be edited as it is right now it is riddled with grammatical mistakes but even though this is an issue, Emmalee Aple’s writing is actually quite remarkable.

The Deliverer by Jason D. Morrow Review

The Deliverer

By Jason D. Morrow

What if death was only the beginning of your story? That is where we find Silas Ainsley, he is being hunted down by creatures and the only way to save him his protector stabs him through the heart. Silas is then transported to Marenon where anyone who has died prematurely is taken to keep living, “life after life.” Once Silas is there it turns out to just be the beginning of his story that he had actually been born there and it was prophesied that he would be the deliverer, of what we do not know.

For years people have debated on what happens after we die and Jason D. Morrow has come up with a very interesting answer, we keep living in a separate world full of magic and strange creatures. Though this book was interesting and Jason D. Morrow jumps right into the story submerging you completely, it does need some more editing. All in all it was entertaining, leaving you wanting more and ready to read the next book to see if Silas can fulfill his destiny.

Now You See Her by James Patterson Review

Now You See Her

By James Patterson

Would you risk your life to save the life of a stranger?  This is the dilemma Nina Bloom finds herself facing.  Nina has been in hiding since she found out she was pregnant eighteen years ago, but when an innocent man is about to be executed for a crime he didn’t commit Nina is the only one who can save him.

This was an intense suspense filled novel; James Patterson has managed to capture our attentions from the very beginning and does not let it go even after the end.  The book starts off with the history of Nina and why she is now in hiding and continues until she faces the demons from her past and they are laid to rest. This book is definitely worth the read, and the audio book was a lot of fun for me I especially enjoyed the added sound effects.
