Book Review: Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

Hello, Everyone. It's me, Lexie, and today I am reviewing Dark Flame (Immortal series #4). So if you haven't read the Immortal series before or haven't gotten to Shadowland (Immortal series #3), yet then I wouldn't read this review, but if you have read on. =)

Plot: Ever is trying to help Haven make the transition until life as an immoral. But with Haven drunk on her nre powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat-exposing their secret world to the outside. But Ever's struggle to keep the Immortals hidden only propels Haven closer to the enemy, Roman and his evil compains.

At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick ro free Damen from Roman's power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who's hell-bent on her destruction. Now there's a strange, forgein pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can't stop thinking about Roman- ad longing for his touch. As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state...and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.

Frantic to break the spell,

before it's too late, Ever turns to Jude for help,

risking everything she knows and loves to save herself-

and her future with Damen.

Review: I give this book a 4/5 and I do think it's better then Shadowland (Immortal series #3) and Blue Moon (Immortal series #2), but not better then Evermore (Immortal series #), since that one just seemed like it had more action it it, but I wont disagree since this one had a alot of shocking parts as well. The ending was mostly the most shocking part and Haven suprises me everytime she comes back into the story. I did enjoy this, so I suggest anyone to read it if you haven't already.

Book Review: White Cat by Holly Black

Hello Everyone, it's me Lexie, and here is my review
on Holly Black's new amazing book White Cat.

PLOT: Cassel comes from a family of curse workers- people who have the power to change your emtions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists. But not Cassel. He hasn't got magic, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family.
You just have to ignore one small detail-
he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Cassel has carefully built up a facade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his facade starts to crumble when he finds himself sleepwalking, propelled into the nigth by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to outcon the conmen.

REVIEW: I give this book a 4/5 because I thought at the beginning of this book that it was a little confusing, since I have never read a book about curse workers before, but after a few pages I loved it! The characters are confusing and shocking, but very fun to read about. You will not want to stop reading until it's done, until you know every secret that the conmen already knows.

Book Review: Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Hello everyone, it's me Lexie, and today I'm giving my review on Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready. Hope you like it!

Plot: Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a crucial gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.
Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated.

He's gone.

Well, sort of.

Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and talk to ghosts. This mysterious ability had always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she could undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because Dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding-and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.
As Aura's relationship with dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart... and clues to the secret of the Shift.

Review: Wow. I loved this book. I give it a 4/5. I made me cry a little (a lot), but it was amazing. This book showed me something that most books don't. Most books just are for laughs or make you excited and happy, but this book didn't just show me that. It showed me that even if you lost something so important to you, it doesn't mean it will always be gone forever, sooner or later it will come back to you, and I love how it shows that in this book. The plot is fantastic and very different then most ghost stories and the characters have so much emotion I loved it! Check this book out now, it's hauntingly good.

Don't forget to check out the next book Shift coming out May 2011. Hope you like this review.

Book Review: Infinity (Chronicles of Nick) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Hey Everyone, it's me Lexie. I hope you are liking our site right now and the reviews we are making, and I hope you like future reviews as well.

Plot: At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough, and savvy. Nick's sacrasm is the stuff of legends... until the night his best friends try to kill him. Saved my a warroir who knows more fighting skills then Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into a relam of Dark-Hunters, immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

Even before Nick can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into
flesh-eating zombies.

As if starting high school isn't hard enough... now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chain saw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is his supposed to do that?

Review: I give this book 5/5. One of the best books I have read in a long time. It seems like a mix of Mortal Instruments and Percy Jackson series together, and if you know those two series then you can just imagine how amazing this book was. I have heard people say that this Author is amazing and they couldn't be more right, and now I know why.

Book Review: Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson

Hi Everyone, it's me Lexie, again. Sorry for not posting for sooo long =) Well, it seems like it has =) So I finished Claire de Lune last weekend but forgot to post about it oops. After this I will probably make another post tomorrow about Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon, so I hope you like these reviews.


Plot: Torn between two destinies?

Claire is having the perfect sixteenth birthday. Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she's the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all the sense of normalcy: she's a werewolf.

As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire's new life threatens her blossoming romance with Mattew, who father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice, that will change her forever?

Review: Amazing. I give this book a 4/5. It's in my top 20 favorites. I love Claire and Matt. They are perfect for each other and they do have problems, but it seems like everything works out amazing with them. I do like most of the characters and the plot was amazing, but they person that was the killer kind of surprised me and made me wish that it was someone else that I wanted to be the killer. In the end it was a very good book and this Author knows what she is doing.

Lexie's Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Hey everyone =)

It's me, Lexie, and I'm going to be doing a book review on Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.

Plot: It starts of with a girl named Sophie Mercer who found out she was a witch 3 years ago. It has gotten her into some bad scrapes, but when Sophie attracts too much human attention from a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her father, a elusive European warlock who sends her away to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freaks, Sophie already has three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a crush on a hot warlock, a creepy tag along ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the number-one suspect in a student attack and the only student vampire on campus. And to top it off a threat has been put on Sophie and every other creature in Hex Hall.

Review: This book to me was the farthest thing from boring. When I was done reading it I was amazed. The conflict and the characters really surprise you and make you want more. I have never been so addicted to want to read a book so much before. Sophie went threw so much in this book and the problems she had were a little confusing, but extremely fun. I truly recommended this book to anyone who likes fantasy or YA paranormal. I hope you liked this book as much as I did.

I hope you liked my review. This book is available on Hardcover, Paperback, and eBook.

There is also another book in the series called Demonglass, that will be available on March 1, 2011.
