Bloodrose (Nightshade series Book 3) by Andrea Cremer Review.

Wow!! I really enjoyed this book. It ended the series nicely. (This is the THIRD book in a trilogy so don't read the rest of this review if you don't want to be slightly spoiled. 
I thought the pacing and the main plot of Bloodrose was great and filled with adventure. The book is broken down into 4 main parts, Air, Water, Fire and Earth, where the characters try to find and assemble a weapon that will destroy the Keepers and save the world. This gave the book a unique feel to me as I haven't read a story in parts named after the elements. There were humorous moments, sad moments, and exciting moments where I was turning the pages quickly to see what was going to happen. There were little bits of romance thrown in there as well :D. 
The ending didn't disappoint either as it was filled with action and exciting moments. 
When I saw the 1/2 star reviews for this book I was reluctant to pick it up I have to admit but the book ended the way I wanted it to. I won't put what …

Wolfsbane (Nightshade series book 2) by Andrea Cremer Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, 
This book was great like Nightshade (the first book in the series). Wolfsbane focuses on Calla and Shay and the group they've joined with at first. In getting to know the new characters I laughed out loud a lot, which I don't normally do at the relationships that some of the characters had/formed with each other. We see Calla go through a lot to save her friends and family but we also see loss as well and how it affects her and the other characters through her eyes.  Shay doesn't really have a huge role to play in this book but I think the third book will be focused more on him again, as the first book was. Ren wasn't featured much in this book either, which I was grateful for. The small  bit that he was present for he wasn't nice in but that was a small part of the main plot of the story so I forgave that.   Shay is still the main love interest for Calla, although Calla wonders what would have happened if she'd stayed with Shay throughout the …

Nightshade (Nightshade series book 1) by Andrea Cremer Review.

This book has a little bit of everything I love: romance, humour, action, secrets, as well as a paranormal aspect. It even has a love triangle which I don't actually mind. I normally can't stand love triangles.
Calla, an alpha of her pack of werewolves, the nightshade's, is expected to be bonded to Ren, the alpha of the Bane pack of werewolves. She's not sure if she wants that though. Then comes Shay, a boy who doesn't know of werewolves at first. Shay and Calla have an instant chemistry but try not to show it as Calla is forbidden to be with Shay. I found this element of the book typical of most love triangle books but at the same time it was exciting to read because of the plot that went along with it. A story has to be in the right place for a love triangle and I believe that this one certainly was. 
Shay asks for Calla's help in trying to work out who he is, his parents were killed when he was young. I found this interesting to read because of the rapport bet…

Dark Possession (Fairwick Chronicles Book 3) by Carol Goodman Review

A great finale! This is a short non spoiler review. I can't really delve into the details of this novel as it's the third in the trilogy so that's why this is so short.
Dark Possession starts with Callie depressed having lost her love, Bill - right when she told him how she felt. It's about Callie gaining her power and battling against the villain, who is revealed in the second book. 
Callie has to go on an adventure to gain what she needs to beat the enemy, back to a historical Scotland where she meets people who help her as well as more villains. I found the past element of this book the best part because I got to see Callie fall in love all over again with her Incubus before he became her Incubus - which gave me insight on him and his life before Callie. 
At the end of Dark Possession, we see Callie overcome her fears and become the powerful woman that she was always meant to be. 
I give this book 4 stars because it needs an epilogue showing how Callie would be after th…

Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles Book 2) by Carol Goodman Review.

Hey ForeverBookers! I've just finished Water Witch (book 2 in the Incubus series by Carol Goodman). The first book in the series "Incubus" MUST be read first. I won't post any big spoilers in this review so if you haven't read "Incubus" you won't be spoiled. 
Again, a fantastic book. This novel continues Callie's story as she tries to get over losing the man she was involved with.
This book is really focused on the door to Fairie and trying to keep it open as well as Callie's apparently doomed love life. There's again a swell of new characters, both human and not human. There's good and evil as well. 
Liam (Callie's lover) still features in the story although not as much. 
Callie learns about her witch powers also, which was good to see as it bought another, interesting level to the story. 
This is still an erotic, adult novel so not for younger readers.
Overall I give this book 4.5 stars. It has everything that I love but was a little…

Incubus (Fairwick Chronicles Book 1) by Carole Goodman

Hi ForeverBookers, 
This was a great book. It's got a romantic plot line (which I loved) as well as a darker more mystical plot line as well. The romance doesn't really start until half way through the book but when it does start it's good. 
Callie becomes a teacher at Fairwick College. She had to leave her boyfriend in the city as he hadn't finished his degree. Fairwick is a mystical place though, filled with creatures who aren't human, as well as normal humans.  Callie has erotic dreams, after she moves there. Dreams that have been given to her by her incubus.  At first Callie stays in an Inn in Fairwick because she doesn't have anywhere else to stay. But she sees this Victorian house and decides to buy it and live there. There are mysteries that surround the house.  We get to know a couple of Callie's students and a lot of her colleagues at the college throughout the book. These characters add to the story. I didn't find anyone to be out of place while re…

Witch: A new beginning (The Witch Series 1) by LS Gagon Review

I got this book through NetGalley. Wow - what a book! It has mystery, humour, romance and danger all rolled up into one book. 
It tells the story of a girl who thinks she's something but it's revealed that she's a witch as the story progresses. The spells were written in rhyme, which I think is quite unique. The romance was a huge part of this story, which I loved! There is an evil force In this story, who wants to bring disaster to the lives of the main characters of this book. He doesn't care about hurting anyone. There is a cliffhanger ending however as it's the first book in what I think is a trilogy. This is not a HEA book. There are twists and turns that you won't see coming until you read them also. 
I therefore give this book five stars. I can't wait to read the next in the series...Thank you to Autumn Day Publishing for giving me the chance to review this book.
