Lonesome Paladin Book Review

Title: Lonesome Paladin: An Urban Fantasy Novel (A Fistful of Daggers Book 1)

Author: SM Reine

Publication Date: April 16, 2018

This is a new series but if your a fan of SM Reine then the main characters will be like old friends. As always (from this author) the characters are complex and well developed. The story is compelling and does a good job of pulling you into the world SM Reine has created.

Lincoln Marshall is a lost man. He has been to hell and back, made it threw the end of the world but seems to be haunted by visons of his once great love Elsie. He likes to stick to the quiet places and drink as much of the days away as possible. I poorly picked fight lands him in OPA lock up.

Cesar is stuck in Reno trying to help get the OPA up and running again. Since the end of the world and Genesis; things have been crazy. Wears, seithe and other magical creatures roam the world but Cesar use to be a witch, not any more. When Lincoln Marshall lands in his lap Cesar is sure he is nothing but trouble but his file with OPA is mostly redactions so he cuts him loose in the morning. Little did he know he would be comming for Lincoln’s help before the day was out. An attack on the OPA facility activates seithe powers in him and he must travel to the middle world’s to learn to manage them.

Lincoln and Cesar travel to the middle worlds where no human has ever survived. With killer unicorns, deadly doppelgangers, unhelpful royalty and the new God they will struggle and falter along the way. When losing means loss of good friends and destruction of the middle worlds they must succeed.

This is the first book I have read by Astrid Arditi but won’t be the last. This is a promising first book in a trilogy. The writer drops you into her world and the end comes all too soon. Fantastic teen book but solid enough story to please and adult.

By Ann Mayburn

Release Date: January 26, 2014

This is the second book I have read from the Chosen stories. Blessed is a wonderful blend of magic, mystery, mythology, legend, love and passion. It is not necessary to read the first book first. each story speaks for it’s self and other than the theme do not lead off one to the other, but you might want to look it up and read it too.

Elina Shay grew up in a small town that doesn’t practice god worship. In fact Elina was brought up forbidden to do so. When she convinced her parents to let her go to a public college, she meets professor Aiden Klemenson, that’s too dam sexy to ignore. Aiden singles her out and tries to explain that she it a chosen of one of the gods of creation but her upbringing leaves her with doubts and disbelief. Now with an attraction she can not ignore and the chosen of the destruction gods stalking her and sending demons after her can she realize her potential in time to save her life and the relationship she hopes can blossom?

Hidden Destiny by Carrie Ann Ryan


Hidden Destiny

by Carrie Ann Ryan

Published by Fated Desires Publishing

release date: January 14 2014

North and Lexi’s story.  So glad its here.  A beautiful story. Just a little warning the story is amazing but sad and a little brutal at times. North knows he is destined to kill Corbin, the Alpha of the Centrals but this twist he never could have guessed.  Lexi has a secret and even though she feels the pull of the mate bond with North she feels he will reject her is she tells him.

Just a little peek: North and Logan both pivoted toward the Central Alpha, who stood about twenty yards from them. He looked the same as always, dirty and oily, with a sneer on his face. North’s wolf clawed at him, wanting to kill the bastard now forever laying a had on Lexi, but he held him back. This wasn’t the time, not yet. Not when he didn’t know his surroundings or weather the demon was with the bastard. Corbin alone North could take. Add in the demon and there was a problem. “I see you got our message,” North said, his voice oddly clam.
