blood hunter by C.N. Crawford review

Blood Hunter (The Vampire's Mage #3)Blood Hunter by C.N. Crawford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, I can't believe I read book 2 and 3 in just a few hours today.

Book three was a little more on the wild side when it comes to the relationships and total craziness that seems to overtake book three at times but it was all pretty exciting and while sometimes a little over the top I still really liked the book. I felt like each book upped the ante for the last book one eased readers in book 2 opened you to more of the world and the character and book 3 lead you into crazy town. While sometimes it was a little much most of the time I thought it was brilliant lots going on never a chance to get bored it felt like I was flipping through the book but never wanting to reach the end.

While each of the characters are different and fun in their own right I think some of the things that make a character said out is their flaws and whole they overcome it and make themselves better so I'm excited to see what happened by the end of the series. I have to say so far I'm really pleased with the series and glad I stumbled onto them and gave them a read.

Witch hunter by C.N. Crawford review

Witch Hunter (The Vampire's Mage #2)Witch Hunter by C.N. Crawford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read book one and moved right onto book two and I was not disappointed. Truth is a lot more of the back story was uncovered in this book some of the characters and their behavers made more sense than in the first book. I sometimes thought why is he doing this why does it matter and while reading through this book as the story progressed I found myself understanding more and more as to why the characters acted the way they did how their pasted had molded them into what I was seeing now. There was a lot of secrets and lies and so many twists and turns and I really enjoyed uncovering and following the storyline it was an exciting ride all the way through to the end it does make me think about what may lay ahead in book three and I will carry on reading happily to find out.

I also felt that the main character was just a little smarter than before when she was doing stupid things for no reason I was infuriated but she seems to be getting better which I like, made it easier to connect with her. She was determined to uncover her pasted and the stuff that was haunting her and while I'm unsure what that will mean for her as I carry on reading I am excited to find out. I think on of the main things I was sad about is the fact the author did not have more about Caine brother something in me really wants him to be more active in the books.

Overall the book was an easy and exciting read I had no problems zooming through its pages like a demon and it's always a clear sign of a book when you can get through it so fast without taking breaks or needing to go off and do something else. I do hope the next book is just as good or better than the last.

Magic hunter by C.N Crawford review

Magic Hunter: An Urban Fantasy Novel (The Vampire's Mage Series Book 1)Magic Hunter: An Urban Fantasy Novel by C.N. Crawford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read in a while I stumbled onto it while checking out amazon kindle store and after reading the book info and seeing the book cover I thought what the hell I'll give it a go and at 99p or something silly like that why not try it.

The first thing that jumped out at me was how easy the book was to read it had a nice way of keeping you interested throughout the book without stumbling over painful patches where nothing happened the book had great passing that had me reading without needed to pause of reread parts which is always great when starting a new series.

The storyline itself is interesting and fun I liked the way the book headed without just giving everything away all at once I felt like I was working for the picture the author was creating. I loved the fact that it was not totally over complicated to the point that I lost track of what was what.

The characters currently too early to say how I feel about the characters I enjoyed reading and following them I liked the fact Rosalind was not some simple-minded softie that needed the help of everyone but she did sometimes make me want to yell when she went in without thinking but I felt in a way its the mistakes and silly thing about characters that make them seem more real. Caine, i'm not sure if I love him or hate him at this point at times he makes me laugh and smile and other times I roll my eyes and want to slap him but that's the fun right overall a solid start to the series and I will happily continue to book two :)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith,Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, #1)Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was never one for classics and I don't think there is one that I have read all the way through due to the old style of writing but when I saw this I thought now this looks like something I might be able to read. While it still has this strange commutation between character and classic writing style but the fact that the story was interesting and easy to jump into.

I loved the fact that not all the women characters are soft hearted air heads worried about stuff that would have really grated on me but on life and death and being ready to strike. The characters are unique and different and I found that I did in fact like Lizzy. She could sometimes be hot headed and easy to blow up with kind of had me laughing when I could see something she could not.

While this is not something I would normally read I'm glad I did the fact the book was well written and the story was so different once you added a world of zombies and people that had to fight or die. I think I would like a lot more books to have zombies and other monsters added to them I am a massive fan of the stuff that keeps readers up all night with nightmares and just books that have that little extra to them.

Half Lost by Sally Green review

Half Lost (The Half Bad Trilogy, #3)Half Lost by Sally Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my god what an end to this amazing series. Truth is this book has had me on an emotional roller-coaster ride the ups the downs all the way through the series. I struggled to see the light at the end of the tunnel for anyone and I feared that the book would destroy me before I even got to the end of it.

Through the series I have had so many unanswered questions that I worried would never get answered but this book covered everything that I needed to know and it left me feeling satisfied and pleased that I was not going to be left hanging and wondering about things. When I read the second book I was a little bit worried what awaited me in book three but my worry was for nothing because this book blow me away. Everything that I loved from the first and second book from the writing style to the dark and edgy storyline was in this book and more.

The book had everything that I wanted and it made reading this book so easy and breath taking. The characters had grown and become people that you felt proud of that you begged to keep going and cried for and clutched your heart as it hammered inside your chest.

The ending of this book had me wide eyed and in tears I was shaking with emotion I could hardly breath or see the pages I was reading. The ending was one of a mix of everything thing that you wanted but this whole series was one of surprises and sometimes deep darkness from the world. The book also had joy and laughing and while I loved that but what made the book out of this world good was the Darkness the unknown it was all the things that made Nathan strong and a fighter.
I am so glad I got the chance to read this breath taking series it has been a wild ride that has left me laughing and crying at times like all great book should.

Half Wild by Sally Green review

Half Wild (The Half Bad Trilogy, #2)Half Wild by Sally Green
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book follows on from the last book. It opens with Nathan waiting in the place that he was meant to meet up with Gabriel but things are looking really grim. This does not shock me I learned from the first book that the Author does fear and hate and so much more really well. It makes for a gritty and dark storyline that keeps you glued to your seat.

I did have a few hiccups through the book I struggled to get into the book at first and I pushed on forward after the first few pages I was hooked again. There was also Annalise while I really want to like her and everything truth is I don’t the more I hear about her the more I want to pull my hair out. I feel so bad for Gabriel that would do anything for Nathan and I feel so sad for him.

The book has a way of making you worry about who you like and trust just in case the worst happens. The story has a way of keeping you reading late into the night and making your heart rate thump as the action hits the fan. It’s a really great read and I can’t wait to move onto the next one.

Half Bad by Sally Green review

Half Bad (The Half Bad Trilogy, #1)Half Bad by Sally Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Half bad was a really shockingly good read the main character Nathan is an outcast he is what the council of witches calls a half code. His mother was a white witch and his father a black witch but Nathan is living in his mother community. All Nathan has ever really got from people is hate and mistrust. He spends his time with limited contacted with others and mostly sticks with his brother and while I read this I felt for him his isolation and horrible treatment. it made it so easier to like him and it felt like I knew Nathan as a character. The more the book went on the more I got to see what his life was like and I struggled to understand how people could hate a person they did not really know all because of what he was. It was strange how much I felt like yelling at these people for being pig headed monsters but it made for a great storyline and helped me as a reader get into the story.

The book had a really unique beginning before pulling you into the how's and why's of how he got there and the book was divided into parts with interesting chapter headings the way it was all put together made me feel while reading it that I was inside Nathan's head rather than seeing it from a birds eye view or being someone along for the ride which I really liked.

The storyline was jam packed with this unique story that had been built up with lots of thought behind the whole thing and you could tell that a lot of hard work and deep thoughts went into each new thing in the book. I loved the whole white and black witch and all the information and the witches system of working. The whole thing was different and intriguing and I loved the fact that nothing was easy to guess that I felt shocked and excited about each new detail and whole the book steamrolled forward never letting up with the none stop joyride that is Nathan life.
