Book Review: Rapture by J. R. Ward (2012).

On the Cover.

Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too . . .

As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when you’re trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels’s heart at risk, what in heaven – or in hell – will it take to save them both?

Review.

Rapture is the fourth novel in J. R. Ward’s Fallen Angel series, and is the best of the series so far. The last book I am sad to say just wasn’t up to par, but this instalment has really made up for the discrepancy. Jim Herron is at it again saving soul’s with his fellow fallen angel Adrian, and even though he is gone and sorely missed, Eddies spirit seems to linger with the duo all the same. Not to mention Dog making sure he stays safe in the event something happened. Devina also remains in the scene causing problems with everything she can so that she. An win the game of good and evil!

I found this book much more appealing than the last. I’m not sure if it was because there were more familiar characters than in the last, having Matthias involved and him being the soul whom good and evil are vying for. Or it may have been the fact Mels is such a strong female character, who lives hard, and loves hard. Altogether it made for a great storyline for the battle between good and evil.

Overall I enjoyed this novel very much and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the paranormal genre and fantasy fiction. I give this book a rating of 8/10 stars.

Book Suggestions – Enchanted Chaos by Jessica Sorensen (2018).

From the description I think this will be a pretty good read. It’s something directed at the young adult, who enjoys paranormal fantasy fiction. However, that doesn’t mean that the older adult reader wouldn’t find interest in this novel.

Looks like something worth checking out 📚👍👌👀😊

Enchanted Chaos by Jessica Sorensen

On the Cover

Skylin isn’t sure if she can survive the chaos that is the Everettson family.

Book ideas – Wary is Her Love, by Judith Berens (2018).

This looks like a great read for young adult paranormal fans. The book cover is very telling of the pages inside, and the description brings the reader into a strange world even before they open the book.

Reading Suggestions – Arcane by Sever Bronny (2014).

This looks good. The book Cover itself gives a lot to the imagination and the description is pretty good.

“A coming of age young adult saga readers are comparing to Harry Potter, Wheel of Time, and Eragon. A tale of magic, ambition, betrayal . . . and compassion.”

Arcane by Sever Bronny

On the Cover

Fourteen-year-old Augum grew up with bullies instead of friends. In a kingdom where superstition trumped the written word, he fought loneliness by reading books and doing hard labor. It was a typical life for a gutter-born orphan.

An inferno changes everything. And Augum, having lost it all, begins again. He finds a mentor and even befriends Bridget and Leera, two passionate and quirky girls willing to give him a chance. Together they dream of becoming warlocks.

But Augum’s mentor possesses an ancient and highly sought-after artifact. When an ambitious tyrant suddenly turns up demanding it, Augum resists–and discovers something about himself that changes the course of history. As the tyrant plunges them into a harrowing ordeal, Augum will have to use his newly-learned spells to try to save the only thing he has left . . .

Book Review: Crave, by J. R. Ward (2010).

I must apologise to readers for my latest blogging discrepancy. I always post series I Review in the order written and therefore read. However for the first time in a long time I have missed a review. Sorry if anyone was actually waiting for this.

Here is the missing review! 📚

Blurb

Seven deadly sins. Seven deadly souls that must be saved. One more no-holds-barred battle between Jim Heron, a fallen angel with a hardened heart, and a demon with everything to lose.

Isaac Rothe is a black-ops soldier with a dark past and a grim future. The Target of an assassin, he finds himself behind bars, his fate in the hands of his gorgeous public defender, Grier Childe. His hot attraction to her is totally wrong place – wrong time kind of thing – and that’s before Jim Heron tells him his soul is in danger. Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the soldier in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil…

Review

Another great read by J. R. Ward. Just not what I had expected to say the least. I know the good guy doesn’t always win but I didn’t expect any form of failure so soon. But understandably the storyline does have a point. With free will and all that goes with it, I should have realised that all wasn’t as it seemed, but failed to see the twist that was coming!

The characters teamed up with Jim, such as his buddies Eddie and Adrian still carry a sense of mystery. We are yet to see what brought them into the fight for good and evil, or why they have become “fallen” angels and not just sticking with the angel part of the title. The addition of Isaac and Grier brings out the underlying erotic pull that J. R. Ward is renown for, but somehow there was too much drama and adventure to really get into really HOT scenes that we all know she writes so well. Instead she tantalises us with a twist that leaves one man dead, which obviously had to happen, but not in any way I had guessed.

Devina of course is being her horrifically difficult self. I admit some of the torture Jim undergoes is something I could imagine anyone surviving, let alone going on to save the day with his friends. But apparently it is somewhat possible, as Jim Heron still hasn’t really missed a beat. I guess that is why I did find the ending difficult to swallow, considering Jim goes through such horrible events yet the deal seemed to have already been sealed.

Overall, I have enjoyed Crave, the second of the Fallen Angels series. I would recommend it to adults who enjoy fantasy fiction with a mix of romance and erotica! I give this book a rating of 8/10 stars
