Hush Money: Talent Chronicle Review

5 Stars: I absolutely loved Hush Money! The characters and secrets caught my attention. I couldn't stop reading to find out who is who and why they are doing these things. My favorite character has to be Joss because she seems so much like me. This was one of the best stories I have ever read. 

I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11. The language isn't appropriate for anybody under that age. I hope you read this because it is one of my must reads! Have a great day!

They call their abilities Talents, and that’s what they call themselves as well. Talents are people born with supernatural powers, feared by the population at large. Possession of an “unregistered ability” has become illegal, and those who are discovered are forcibly removed to government-run research facilities. They do not return. 

And so the Talents try, as best they can, to keep their abilities secret–some more successfully than others. For some, keeping that secret begins to define who they are. That’s where Hush Money begins…
Be normal, invisible. Don’t get close to anyone. Those are the rules to live by for seventeen-year-old Joss. She spent years as an outsider, hoping to hide what she is, until the new girl, Kat, decides she’s friend material. Kat doesn’t realize her mistake when she stands up for Joss against Marco, a guy who’s been giving Joss a hard time since freshman year. Joss is horrified when these heroics lead to the reveal of Kat’s Talent. Now she has an unasked-for best friend, who is the victim of an extortion plot by the school bully, who used to like Joss. And if all that weren’t complicated enough, Dylan, Joss’s long-time crush, is finally starting to talk to her. But as Marco’s best friend, can Dylan be trusted at all? Can Joss keep her secret and still save her friend? And what’s more important, staying safe or doing what’s right?
Hush Money is a novel of approximately 50,000 words, and is rated PG-13 for strong language and one suggestive scene. It is recommended that parents read the sample provided by their retailer before purchasing this book for tweens/younger teens.

Dirty Blood: Dirty Blood Series review

4.5 stars: Dirty Blood was a very good werewolf story. It's a good story because of it's characters, plot, and action. The characters were amazing and so was the action. The plot was exciting! I just couldn't stop reading to see what would happen to the characters.
 I recommend this book to anyone that wants to read it. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do too. Don't forget you can always tell me what you think about the books I review.

I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One, Werewolves do exist. And two, I was born to kill them.

Runes: Runes Series Review by Ednah Walters

5 stars: I'm back from my hiatus and thought I'd review one of my favorite reads from this fall.

This was a really great book. I liked Runes because of all the mystery, suspense, and action. The characters are phenomenal, very well written and the romance was cute. The best parts of this book are the magic, action, romance, and friendships.

I suggest this book to anyone over the age of 11 or 12 because some of the language may not be appropriate for anyone younger. I really enjoyed it and hope you consider reading it.

Blurb: Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her. 

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.
