Review: The Darkest Surrender

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

The Darkest Surrender  (Lords of the Underworld, #8)


From Goodreads:
Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own-steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter-the love neither had thought possible...


My Review:
Definitely one of the better books in this series. Strider & Kaia were the perfect couple...I mean literally they were written for each other. 
Stride who is possessed by the demon Defeat cannot loose a challenge without going through much suffering. And my o' my did Kaia challenge him in this installment of LOTU. I necessarily didn't care for Strider in some of LOTU books I read...thought he was a little cocky & yeah he still is (as he would say...ego check) But you got to know more about him and his feelings towards Kaia. 
Kaia, a harpy looking to redeem herself to her people after an incident that involved herself as a child is invited to the  Harpy games, along with her sisters and a couple of allies after being banned for centuries.  As she fights her way through the games, she must go through her own challenges (namely keeping Strider from distracting her as she competes & finally gaining her mother's love & respect). 
I also thought there was a lot going on this book too. I like hearing about the other couples & warriors while I'm reading a book, but I don't want read TOO much about them. I want the story to stay on the main characters and as much as I enjoyed reading this story, I don't think (in my opinion) this book did that enough. 
This one gets 4 Black Orchids...

My Snippet this week is from The Darkest Surrender by Gena Showalter
"Yours, Never should have resisted you." Predatory growls sprang from low in his throat. His free hand slammed into the wall behind him, right beside his thigh, cracking the crystal. He hit again. Split. Again. Shatter. All that intensity....all for her...." (Good gravy...now that...THAT is intense!)





Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

My Teaser:
Surrender the Dark by L.A. Banks
"Dawn kissed the windows and entered by bedroom with rose-orange glory. A profound peace filled Celeste as she lay beneath an angel's wings and watched the horizon change before her eyes. Now she understood why the brothers had chosen this high building with windows all around. She couldn't imagine the many dawns they'd seen during the millennia they'd been marooned here, or what golden memories still called out to them from beyond the sun".

Review: Monster Story by McCarty Griffin

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Monster Story

From Goodreads:
Christy McCauley has returned to West Virginia at last, but her homecoming quickly turns into a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows and woods of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the dark of night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again.


My Review:
Christy McCauley returns home for her grandmothers funeral and finds out that she's not just dealing with her & her mother's almost non-existing relationship. She and her friends finds out there is a monster walking around in their small West Virginia town and it's wreaking havoc. 
This one gets 4 Black Orchids. There were some typos throughout the book, but it didn't take away from the story, which was solid and the characters were strong. This is a great scary story and I enjoyed it immensely.

Weekly Follow Up.....



That's me up there, reflecting my work.....

So this week was a cyclone of things to do. There was too much to do & really no time to get it all done (this is the story of my life...lol). So after going to traffic court, then motor vehicles (now that's a horror story on its own..) and then also try to update my blog with review & contest/giveaways I'm a part of....and oh yeah, squeezing work in there too ;0.....whew! I'm beat.

A new week is approaching & hopefully with a little more time management regiments, I'll be able to get through with a little more effectiveness.
