The Forest Of Hands And Teeth Review

Summary: In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death.

My feelings:The Forest of Hands Of Hands And Teeth was disappointing for me. I thought this book would be a break from all the vampires and werewolves but no the characters in the book were distant and so was the romance it was almost like I was like I was reading with a wall up between me and the characters because I really couldn't grasp there personality’s. And the romance between the main character Mary and Travis was very weak thorough out the book I kept wondering why Mary wasn't with Harry because she had more of a connection with him then she had with Travis. I also didn't like how selfish marry was all she cared about was getting to the occean,I know it symbolized hope for her but really do you want to die chasing a dream and lose the one you love. I did enjoy the zombies they were mostly the only thing I did like about the whole book.

Overall: I will say you might love this book or hate it.

The Dark Divine Review

Summary:Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared--the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood--but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held.The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's high school. Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry glint in his eyes.The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boy's dark secret...and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it--her soul.

My feelings: The Dark Divine started out very boring but got way better towards the end.
Grace and Daniels chemistry was very real and interesting you could really see that they had a real connection to each other unlike like other books were the connections washed out and 1 dimensional. I also liked the supernatural aspect of the book it gave the story the spice that it needed to keep me turning the pages. My favorite part of the book was the last few pages when the mystery and suspense pulled me in.without the awesome ending The Dark Divine had it wouldn't have been as great but thank god the Author thought to add something really intriguing at the end.

Overall I will have to say it was D-i-v-i-n-e and would recommend it to anyone who's read Hush Hush and Fallen.

The Mark by Jen Nadol

Cassandra Renfield has always seen the mark—a glow around certain people reminiscent of candlelight. But the one time she mentioned it, it was dismissed as a trick of the light. Until the day she watches a man awash in the mark die. After searching her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Not how or where, only when: today.
Armed with a vague understanding of the light, Cassie begins to explore her “gift,” seeking those marked for death and probing the line between decision and destiny. Though she’s careful to hide her secret—even from her new philosophy-obsessed boyfriend—with each impending death comes the temptation to test fate. But so many questions remain. How does the mark work? Why is she the only one who sees it? And finally, the most important of all: If you know today is someone’s last, should you tell them?

Need Review

Summary: Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasnt exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane . . . but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.She couldn't’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right—not human—in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara. In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you’d have to fear.
My feelings: I thought Need was a fun read that was very addicting.I really liked Zara's character because shes independent and when the time calls very clever.When I first stared reading this book I really didn't like it but as the story progressed I found myself turning the pages at a such a rapid speed that actually got a paper cut.The characters in this book were very well developed and interesting.The ending of this book was good because it didn't leave me with a cliffhanger but it did leave me excited to see what happens next in this series.

Overall: Need was a Quick and addicting read.

Darklight Review

Summmary:Faerie can't lie . . . or can they?
Much has changed since autumn, when Kelley Winslow learned she was a Faerie princess, fell in love with changeling guard Sonny Flannery, and saved the mortal realm from the ravages of the Wild Hunt. Now Kelley is stuck in New York City, rehearsing Romeo and Juliet and missing Sonny more with every stage kiss, while Sonny has been forced back to the Otherworld and into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the remaining Hunters and Queen Mabh herself.
When a terrifying encounter sends Kelley tumbling into the Otherworld, her reunion with Sonny is joyful but destined to be cut short. An ancient, hidden magick is stirring, and a dangerous new enemy is willing to risk everything to claim that power. Caught in a web of Faerie deception and shifting allegiances, Kelley and Sonny must tread carefully, for each next step could topple a kingdom . . . or tear them apart.

My feelings: This book started out good and ended with a cliffhanger that will leave you yearning for the third book. I really enjoyed being set back in to the relationship between Sonny and Kelly it was even more intense than it was in the first book and it was also nice to hear more about a certain member of the Janus Guard who played quit a bigger role in this book than he did in the previous book. I really do hope that a relationship evolves between Kelly and Fennrys because I do love a love triangle plus bad boys are hot.this book had a lot more action its probably because the story was more developed their for leaving more space for the action every one looks for. I liked the new variety of characters and that it talks more about the history of the Otherword.

So overall I would recommend this to anyone who likes The Wicked Lovely Series,Wings,Modern Tale of Faerie Series,Need and Lament.
