Cover Reveal: Girls on Fire Boxed Set

About the GIRLS ON FIRE boxed set:
WITCH FALL – Amber Argyle
High Fantasy
Supreme in their dominion over seasons, storms, and sea, the witches have forgotten the unmatched destructiveness of mankind. And among the weapons men seek are the magical songs of the witches. Born of witches but raised among their enemies, Lilette searches for a way to heal the rift between mankind and the witches. But it may be too late to save either. For if there is one thing Lilette has come to know for certain, it’s that all things fall.

Paranormal Romance
For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie Starling. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she’s not the person she thought she was, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war.

AWAKENING – Christy Dorrity
When an ancient curse threatens McKayla McCleery's family, she must decide what in her life is real and what is fantasy. Based in Celtic mythology, Awakening is a gripping young adult fantasy that is rife with magic, romance, and mystery.

INEVITABLE – Tamara Hart Heiner
Visions of death plague Jayne, who thinks watching her sister die is the worst that could happen to her. But when she witnesses a murder, Jayne realizes that the next death she sees might be her own.

WATCHED – Cindy M. Hogan
Romantic Suspense
Change. She longed for it.
A murder. She will never be the same.


Futuristic Fantasy
Sixteen-year-old Gabriella Kilpatrick can shoot fire from her hands, which would be great if she didn’t get blamed for a blazing inferno that kills 17 schoolmates. Gabby will have to learn who she can trust, how to control her own power, and most of all, how to lead a Council of Elementals, most of whom have more control over their power than she does. If she can’t, she’ll find herself just like those 17 schoolmates: burned and six feet under.

Kickbutt faerie Violet is about to graduate as the top guardian trainee of her class, but when an assignment goes wrong and the human boy she’s meant to be protecting follows her back into the fae realm, a dangerous plot is set in motion.

PERCEPTION – Lee Strauss
Eternal Life is to Die For.
A spoiled genetically altered girl needs the help of a jaded “natural” boy to find her missing brother.

INTRINSICAL – Lani Woodland
The gene that allows the women in Yara’s family to see and communicate with spirits seems to have passed her over. Until the night she rescues a local hottie from an attacking ghost. Her act of heroism attracts the attention of the evil spirit, and she finds herself entrenched in the middle of a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening her own life as well as that of her friends.
Publication date: June 16, 2014
Price: 99 cents for 10 amazing YA novels!

Review: Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Title:  Dangerous Creatures
Author: Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Genre:  Young Adult/Urban Fantasy/Paranormal
Publisher:  Penguin
Publication Date:  20th May 2014
ISBN:  9780141354101
Stand Alone/Series:  Dangerous Creatures #1
Pages:  Enter
First Lines:  There are only two kinds of Mortals in the backwater town of Gatlin, South Carolina - the stupid and the stuck.  At least, that's what they say.

Synopsis:  Ridley Duchannes is nobody's heroine.
She's a dark Caster, a Siren.  She can make you do anything.  She can't be trusted. By Anyone.
But that hasn't stopped her boyfriend Link from falling in love with her - or taking her with him to follow his rock-star dream.
New York City is a dangerous place for both Casters and Mortals, and soon Ridley realizes that Link's bandmates are keeping secrets.
Determined to uncover the truth, what she finds out is worse than she could have imagined.
Link has a price on his head that no Caster or Mortal can ever pay.
With lives on the line, what's a Siren to do?

My Thoughts:  I absolutely loved the Caster Chronicles  and hadn't realized that there was going to be a spin off with Ridley and Link until Penguin sent me a package in the mail.

I was a bit skeptical to begin with because I got to about page 15 and wasn't really into this as much as I'd hoped to be.  I just wasn't really warming up to Ridley like I had with the characters of Beautiful Creatures.  I guess I was hoping to find that bit of Lena within her and I couldn't help feeling a little disappointed.

But I'm glad I kept reading because once I hit page 24 and then to 112, the tables had turned and I thought wow!  Ridley, I could get used to this. The run in with Link's mother before they leave had me thinking I could get used to Ridley's attitude, but what really did it for me was the part with Ridley in the Hair Salon.  I'd been hooked.

Ridley didn't really stand out for me in the Caster Chronicles but I'm happy that she's been given her own series with Link.  She's attitude, doesn't deal with anyone's crap and surprisingly deep, deep, down there is a soft side to her.  Paired with Link, it makes for an interesting duo.  Link isn't the brightest spark, but he's genuine, head over for heels for Ridley, and terrible band member with his lyrics.

If you've read the Caster Chronicles, you'll more than likely enjoy this spin off series!  I recommend to read the Caster Chronicles first, it will give you a better understanding of the family but it is not necessary!

Fave Lines:  When it came to relationships, the truth never set anyone free.  The Truth only set things on fire. - page 95.
Book received from:  Penguin Australia
