The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Córdova

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This was fun, fun, FUN! I couldn't get enough of Zoraida Córdova debut novel, from the whole summer feel to *GASP* mermen! Yup! Cordova gave us something totally new with a male lead that is a merman- let the mayhem begin!

Tristan Hart is just your normal horn dog/manslut sixteen year old teen. His love for the water just seems to stem from being a great swimmer, and living around Coney Island, New York. Until one day a freak storm appears and Tristan is dragged into the sea, missing for three days without any memory of those days, expect a silver mermaid with shark smile. His feels different since he's been back and everything becomes even more confusing when he grows a tail and his mom use to be a mermaid! Why did it have to be the more girlie fairy tale?

I loved Tristan cause he was pretty normal teen, he at times could be pretty insensitive, lack tack but on the other side of the coin he had alot of growt…

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




One word can sum up this whole book for me: Captivating

As I started this book I thought it be about an angel falling in love, Wendy Higgins quickly throws anything I might of had about this book out the window and created an amazing tale of a young Nephilim, Anna Whitt, who doesn't know what she is, only that her senses are super hype, and she's able to see and feel emotions.

Anna comes across as someone naive and maybe a little goody-two shoes, but it fits her, the kindness, and love she gives builds the strength she needs in order to face some pretty nasty demons and things that could break anyone's heart and turn them into the negative side of life. She to has her flaws, but their of a young girl in love, and confused, but still standing tall. The Demon Du…

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Based on Poe's dark story of never cheating Death, Bethany Griffin's Masque of the Red Death set in a world where disease has ravage the land and it's people. Streets are filled with death and corpse collectors come to take the dead away. The rich who wear porcelain masks, blank faces that walk the streets and protect the wearer from disease, waste their times at clubs, waiting for death themselves....

Araby is part of this protected rich because of her father the inventor of these masks has given her the privilege. Araby though suffers from guilt of just being alive after the death of her twin. As she wastes her days just trying to go numb in the Debauchery Club, she's thrown into the plan of uprising against the sadistic Prince Prospero.

The world of MOTRD was at times very vague, perhaps a homage to Poe's original story? Nevertheless this gave the story a slow start, the focus was on th…
