Devil’s Eye by Kait Nolan: review

 

After months of waiting, the sequel to Forsaken by Shadow was released, and sprang swiftly to the Top Ten in Amazon’s e-book category. Devil’s Eye is the second novella in the Mirus series from Kait Nolan, and was most decidedly worth the wait.  Being her perfectionist self, Kait once again does not disappoint. Her prose is poignant and flows beautifully, and her heroines are always admirable. Sophie, the demi-goddess and heroine of this second novella, packs a tough punch and keeps on kicking. Mick, whom we briefly saw in Forsaken by Shadow, is yet another classic Kait male lead. His toughness is belied only by his undying devotion to Sophie. I absolutely adore how Kait makes both the female and male characters tough fighters, but yet softens their personas with a tale woven in love. Devil’s Eye is another great action-packed, paranormal romance from a prolific writer, and I personally cannot wait for the third installment! Thumbs up all around!

People are strange…

So….it’s been awhile since my last post, and thought I’d fill y’all in on my constant drama. Life is….well, it’s just life. Fuck it. I don’t want to sound like some whiny, bitch, so let’s just say it has been trying my patience as of late.

This morning, I caught up on my blog reading, and I found a little humorous nugget from Ironic Mom. Here’s the linky: http://ironicmom.com/2011/01/22/funny-search-terms/

I think we all obsess a little bit about search terms that lead unsuspecting readers to our blogs. I know I’ve had some weird ones myself. Namely, the “peed my pants” one, but that’s another story altogether. So after reading Ironic Mom’s post, I checked mine. I was pleasantly surprised to find I’d had 22 hits yesterday, which is odd as I haven’t posted in a week or so……for your enjoyment, here are my top 4 search terms for yesterday?!

Top Searches: proverbial finger out, stacey benefiel day of sacrifice review, window as eyes, waving through window

So the DoS review is self-explanitory, but what really struck me in the funny-pants was the “proverbial finger out”? I can only imagine…..

Good to know that I’m not the only crazy weird one out here. Enjoy your Sunday, lovelies! I have to go watch the playoffs and get hammered now. 🙂

Go Jets!

Day of Sacrifice by Stacey Wallace Benefiel: review

 
First off, thanks Stacey for another awesome read! Oftentimes, I enjoy reading novellas, as I can read two or three in a brief span of time. I adore the characters! I seem to be on an angel kick lately?! Coincidence? I think not. Anyway, this was a truly enjoyable read, and now I’m off to read Rebellion. It almost makes me glad I waited a bit to read this one!

Crash into oblivion

I stare out the window with eyes anew, dreaming of another day, a way to forget, to reclaim innocence. This way…..this way…it beckons. Tantalizing. Serene. Peaceful.

I fly with invisible wings, arms spread out, toes pointed. Horizontal and mid-air. The wind is my pillow, caressing, waving through my angel hair. Every little nuance of life just sitting there, open, waiting for me to grab ahold of life, death, this spirit world of my creation. I soar…

down

            down

                        down

and crash

into oblivion.

Sinews of the past

  Tomorrow will come

  Sooner than today will pass.

  Words are only dreams,

  existing in ourselves,

  dying to fly,

  to try again.
