Shadow Marked by Anna J. Evans: Review by JesykaJames

Review for Shadow Marked by Anna J. Evans

Title: Shadow Marked
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pages: 308
Format: Paperback
Source: The Book Depository
Release Date: May 4th 2010
Publisher: NAL Trade/Signet Eclipse
Series: Yes
No. in Series: 1

Synopsis: Samantha Quinn has been in the dark since age six, when her parents sacrificed her sight in a Satanic ritual. She is trying to get over her demonic past, but horrific lifelike visions haunt her. Her intuition gets stronger and clearer after a wild, adrenaline-fueled sexual encounter with Jace, her brother's childhood friend. And now Samantha is more tormented than ever by what she can "see"-and by what she felt in that forbidden encounter...

Samantha must now prevent the deaths she sees in her premonitions and protect her body from the same demon from her twisted childhood. Her dark curse reveals that Jace will be the next victim, and it is crystal clear that she must destroy the demon to protect her love.

My Review: I didn't like this book, so this is going to be a pretty short review.

The book seemed to jump in way to fast. One minute the main character was a timid (blind) mouse about to be eaten and the next she was a sex kitten trying to fuck her brothers best friend up against a wall in a demon infested ally... WFT?

Usually, with a book like this there is a redeeming quality. Like, the plot is trash, the characters suck, but the sex scenes rock... well, this is not one of those books. The characters are uninteresting. The plot is nonsensical. And the sex scenes leave a lot to be desired.

To be honest, towards the end of the book, I started reading one in every three lines, sometimes just the dialog, because honestly, it was that bad. I can't even think of one thing to say in defense of this book... I guess, it was written okay, if you take into consideration that the main female character was blind... but really, I think that just made it harder to read. It just seemed like a ramble of words.

I didn't like any of the characters. They were all very one dimensional. I particularly hate Stephen, Sam's brother. He seemed like a pointless character until about the last quarter of the book. Jace was annoying. Sam was wish-washy and flakey. One minute she's the demure blind little sister, the next line she's braving the demon infested streets of NY.

The plot... well, I mean, it might have been a good concept it there was a little more effort put into it. But as it was, it was just all over the place.

I will not be picking up the second book in the series. Even if it's on sale at my local Reject store for .99c.

If you disagree with my review, leave me a comment, or email me and let me know why :)

Tempted by Elisabeth Naughton; Review by JesykaJames

Review for Tempted by Elisabeth Naughton

Title: Tempted
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pages: 411
Format: Paperback
Source: The Book Depository
Release Date: September 6th 2011
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Series: Yes
No. in Series: 3

Synopsis: DEMETRIUS—He’s the hulking, brooding warrior his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his heritage, he knows it’s best to keep everyone at arm’s length.

Isadora is missing. The words pounded through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her own protection, Demetrius had done all he could to avoid the fragile princess, his soul mate. And now she was gone—kidnapped. To get her back, he’ll have to go to the black place in his soul he’s always shunned. As daemons ravage the human realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her into his heart may be the only way to save them both.

My Review: Okay, so as this series goes on I find I am liking it more and more. The characters are developed much better, and the plot is really coming together. The Greek mythology (though not technically accurate) is put together nicely. I am a big fan of Greek mythology, and I like the twist that Ms Naughton has put on it.

There have been a few scenes where I've been like 'Wait a minute, I swear that was an episode of Hercules,' (the old school TV Show staring Kevin Sorbo) but it was still pretty damn good. I am really starting to get a connection with the characters.

Demetrius was my favorite from the beginning, (I have a 'thing' for dark, mysterious, brooding types ;) ) His character really came out in this book, and I loved it. Admittedly, there were some scenes where he might have been a little more of an ass than I would have liked, but it did ring true to the character. And at the end of the day, it was made clear that he would never harm his soul-mate Isadora.

Now, Isadora. In the first book I found that her character was the only one with any depth. In the second book, her character really started to come out of her shell and I found myself quite interested in how her story would play out. In the third book, I was not disappointed. She really came into her own, stopped being the meek princess and started demanding a life for herself. A life she was determined to spend with Demetrius. I would have to say, she is my favorite character so far, with the exception of only one character...

Orpheus. I love him. I am really excited to read his book. He fascinated me from the first book, and I have to admit, there was a small part of me that was hoping he would fight for Iasdora. They were so cute together. I'm hoping by the end of his book (which is number four) that I won't still be wishing he fought for Isadora. Only time will tell I guess.

Anyways, more about the book. It was much longer that the previous two in the series, which made me pretty excited when I got it. The first two were quiet short, and left me feeling a little unsatisfied. But this book was much longer, admittedly some scenes dragged a little, but it was still really good.

**Spoiler Alert

Okay, I'll admit there were two things about this book that annoyed me a little. I don't want to go into it to much, cause there will be spoilers, and also because I did genuinely like this book. I don't want to point out the bad too much.

Okay, so in book one Isadora bargains her soul to Hades, to save her sisters life. My assumption, was that her book would basically revolve around her and Demetrius fighting to get it back, to prevent her from spending her afterlife being tortured and tormented by Hades and Persephone. I was wrong. It was mentioned about four or five times through the course of the book, but was not the main plot. At the end of the book, Isadora's soul was still set for Tartarus. I didn't like that... I mean, will they get a short story, in an anthology or something, at some point in the future? Or will it just be one of those unexplained things?

Second thing I didn't like, also happened within the last twenty or so pages. Nick. A character who has been there since book one, returned, and though we already knew he was Demetrius' brother, we found out a few more thing. Some I won't give away, but one thing was that they were twins. It was also explained that the soul-mate curse applies to them both, and they both share a soul-mate; Isadora. It was glossed over in about three pages. But basically, he lost his chance at having a soul-mate, because Demetrius got her first. Okay, so... huh? I mean, it makes sense, but... I mean, I felt like: One, it was glossed over ridiculously quickly. And two, I feel like it closed the book on a potential story for Nick, and if he does get his own book, I myself, will feel it's a little tainted and false, seeing as though the whole series is based on this 'soul-mate curse'.

But hey, that is just my opinion. If you have read this series and think differently, let me know in the comments, or drop me and email. :)

My Rating: I really did enjoy this book, so I gave it four Tiny Bats out of five.
