review Burden Kanas by alan ryker

This had a little different view on vampires. It made it more oringal. kept me interested to see how it all worked out at the end. Keith is a ranger and somthing been killing his cattle and his nieghbors cattle.  The sheriff came out to see what he could see but he hates keith. A scientist from federal goverment has come out and knows a little about the creature but not much.
Keith ends up trapping one and learned a little bit more about them and knows how to stop them from killing his cows. Keith wife had cancer and keith drinks a lot but he is close with his niece and brother. Makes some really tough decisions and asks others to make them to. I can see how this could lead to more stories along the way.  I liked the story. It given an ebook inexchange for honest review.

review Whirlwind by Robin DeJarnet

I enjoyed watching Melissa meet Jason and watch them fall in love. Melissa came to her best friends Mitch's wedding. She was feeling depressed not only was Mitch now marrying Ann but he was moving away from college and starting a new job. Melissa had a lot of friends at the wedding, but she didn't know the handsome usher who seated her at the wedding untill she saw him seat Mitch's parents and realized it was Jason his younger brother that last fall they had flirted over the internet for a few weeks.  Jason kept stareing at Melissa too and finally at the reception realized that was who she was. Also durning the wedding some guy was bugging and scaring Melissa and Jason and melissa friends scared him away.
Melissa was both flirty and shy with jason because he was at school back east and she in CA. The next day Jason went back with her to her empty apartment because of the scare and did not want to leave her and watch them fall in love and see all the friends she has Melissa had a hard time thinking that in 5 days she wont see Jason again. I loved the characters and wanted to see more of them. I did not want to say goodbye either. I was given the ebook in exchange of review when done.

A serail killer called Pretender is focused on Taylor and wants to play with her. Pretender has helpers he is training they are killing in LA, Boston, NY following different killers mo. He has made all these big plans to draw taylor into. the start of the book he has kidnapped her sargent and took his eyeball out and killed his fiance to get her to go to North Carolina. Their are so many victims and strings its hard to focus she has to be overwhelmed and her fiance is hiding things from her. This books has lots of twists and turns before its all wrapped up. It was hard to put the book down last night and first thing i did this morning was get it out again. I will definately look for her other books. I want to get to know the characters better and see how they worked together in past books and hope for more of them if the future. I was given the book by Library thing in exchange of honest review

Half a life by Darin Strauss

wow! It shows you in a blink your life can change and everyone around you too.  I felt that he was trying to be as honest and true account what happened because of the accident to him and those around him.  I think that would be hard to know you caused a death and be opened about your faults and self centered thoughts
 He opens with the statement that he killed a girl. tells what he remembers and whats he learned about our minds copeing means. It was simple and plain and did not excuse himself. told how he hid the facts too new friends so they would not know what happened his senior year. How long the court case was and how they settled it. Its a tough situation to be in. I was given the book in exchange of honest review. 4 stars

review Throne of Fire by rick riodan

Sadie and Carter Cane are back with thier second tape telling what really happened to them.  The chaos demon is returning with 5 days left for carter & Sadie to restore Ra to the throne and stop the world from ending again. They have new friends that they are teaching the old ways of magic. New enemys are threating them.
The story is long involved and using a lot of knowledge of Egypt ruins and mytholgy in the book. I enjoyed reading and did not put the book down had to finsh it right them plus my 20 year old ready to read it. If you like his other book you should enjoy this one.

Regan found out for a high school friend that the guy she is dating got engaged the night before. Regan and Jack are going to New Jersey shore to be with her parents Nora whos a author and her father Luke.
Nora's old friend from school calls her up and tells her mother has sold the house and selling everything all of a sudden and would she go check on her mom. She in L.A. and is catching a flight out later that day.  So nora gets regan to come down earlier in the day with her.  It has a few different stories threads that all tie in together at the end. Like to see how the characters have grown and changed over the years. 4 stars

Review Death After Midnight by Dean Fetzer

It was a little confusing at first jumping to the new characters and thier start of thier storylines. It all came together well. Has a lot of future world might be like. Th central figure is Jaared who is 167 years old cop. Jaared is blind and he has a computer in his brain so his bosses can always know how he is doing or feeling.  Head is crime boss who wants to find out about templars secrets and what they had hidden, he believes it is the holy grail. Madaline is Jaared benafactor that comes and does things he has a hard time understanding and remembering her.  Emile is an antiques dealer that has painful leg and his shop gets broken into a few times. Paulette she sees glimps of the future and cares for Emile.
Thier is a lot of action and history it was good story and kept me interested in it till the end once I got a handle on who was doing what. recommend it. 4 stars
