Charmfall (Dark Elite Series) Chloe Neill

35 Days left Till Charmfall (Dark Elite Series)
From Goodreads:

High school can be a battlefield, but for Lily Parker, surviving at St. Sophia’s School for Girls is a matter of life and death...

Protecting Chicago from the dark side can be an exhausting job, especially when you’re a junior. So when the girls of St. Sophia’s start gearing up for Sneak, their fall formal, Lily decides to join in on some good, old-fashioned party prep—even if it means not giving demons, vampires and the twisted magic users known as Reapers her undivided attention.

But when a Reaper infiltrates the school, Lily doesn’t forget what she’s sworn to protect. She reaches deep into herself to draw out her magic—and finds that it’s gone. And it turns out she’s not alone. A magical blackout has slammed through paranormal Chicago, and no one knows what—or who—caused it. But Lily knows getting back her magic is worth the risk of going behind enemy lines...

Pre-Order Charmfall Release date is 01/03/2012

I cannot wait to read the next installment I am so Team Lily!!

Wander Dust *The Seraphina Parish Trilogy #1*

Wander Dust (The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy, #1)Wander Dust by Michelle Warren

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This Ebook was lent to my by the Author Michelle Warren. As a Bookreview Blogger I will be on her Book Tour and was lucky to get a ecopy of this book to read and review.

From Goodreads

Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish.

The Lady in Black… burns Sera’s memories.

Unexplainable Premonitions… catapult her to other cities.

The Grungy Gang… wants to kill her.

And a beautiful, mysterious boy… stalks her.

But when Sera moves to Chicago, and her aunt reveals their family connection to a centuries old, secret society, she is immediately thrust into an unbelievable fantasy world, leading her on a quest to unravel the mysteries that plague her. In the end, their meanings crash into an epic struggle of loyalty and betrayal, and she’ll be forced to choose between the boy who has stolen her heart and the thing she desires most.

Wander Dust is the breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time, adventure, and love.


Wander Dust took me a while to get into only because my mind was on a different genre and I had to get into the mind set for this story. Once I sat down and started reading Wander Dust I could not put down and finshed the book in 2 days. I very much enjoyed and my heart went out to Sera to see a teen that is looking to her father Ray for the love she doesn't have and when all the weird things start to happen (not going to give out spoilers). Sera is sent to live with her Aunt Mona and starts to attend the same school her mom Eliza went to. For once Sera starts to finally feel excepted for who she is. When Sera start to search for answer to what is going on and why all the weird things are happening to her Sera answers start to realize that her new life is nothing like Sera dream off.

Sera is a very smart 16yr old and knows when something is not what it always seems to be she discovers she more special then anybody else. As a 16 year old Sera is trying to take in all the changes that have happened to her. With the help and love of her Aunt Mona & her team Sera start to search for answers to her questions to who she is what she is. Sera has to learn to start trusting her team and except her help to what happened to her mother and as her questions start being answered. I have alot of respect for Sera there is not alot of kids her age that have the values Sera has and she is forced to choose to save a member of her team or get the answers to what really happened to her mother. Wander Dust is sweet,sad and funny and exciting story that will keep you on your toes and when you start to think you know what is going something else happens. Michelle Warren has brought a different kind of Paranormal story that I have not seen for a while and it is refreshing to read a story that person whatever the age once they start reading it will not put it down. I am glad this is a trilogy because I will be anticipating the next story of Sera & Bishop. Michelle Warren

DarkspellDarkspell by Elizabeth Mueller

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From Goodreads:

Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . . until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold.

As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter’s protector against the darkness that hunts her. Violently thrust into a magickal realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own.

Will love prove thicker than magick?

***My Review***


I really liked the Story I have been so wrapped up in BD1 and reading my Twilights to get read for the night I had not been paying much attention to my other Paranormal stories and Darkspell did that for me. I had orginally read the first couple of chapters from the author's website and she generously allowed me to read the book for review. First all one thing I really loved about this book is the drawings in between chapters that gave the book a different feel that the other paranormal books don't have. Two I did read this book as a E-Book however I will be getting it as a paperbook just because of the drawing and also because I want my niece to read it I know she will love it so much. The Story of Winter and Alex is a wonderful innocent story of new love and step's a Winter is willing to take to keep that love. This wasn't even about a physical attraction more of emotional love that is sweet and pure and what falling in love with some should be about. I see Winnie as a strong girl that has lost her father at a young age and is the big sister in the family and instead of teens that can't stand their lil brothers she does get fustrated with them but loves them whole hartedly. This was one of those stories where you want peace and quiet just so you can read it with the drawing and also the wonderful writing of Elizabeth Mueller I could see in mind what is going on in the story and the end story was very good I was pretty suprised by it myself and was "Ok I didn't see that coming!". I don't want to give away any spoilers just because this is a book that you have read for yourself and enjoy Winter and Alex story. I cannot wait to see more stories from this author.
