HAT then at other times i literally started giggling chuckling manically laughing on the train at the way some things were written I considered buying the book yes it was a library book and i m still considering it One of my favourites was I Look Up To... Michelle Obama definitely The s Curse which had it s fair shares of laughter and smiles There are some parts in 3 of the 4 stories that makes me wonder Umwhat was the age recommended for this book audience again really it seemed tooahem adult for a young audience which i m assuming starts at 13 o0 Heaven Forbid All the stories were very well thought out and the supernatural theme included was very alluring In stead of only traditional supernatural creatures there were a few others thrown in there which made things very interesting There are similarities between stories which made me ask Did someone purposely edit it to be like this But thatoesn t really matterThis is a good fast read though i Doctor Extraño d prefer the older half of the Young Adult readers to read it The fighting seems to be glossed over at times and others are SLIGHTLY explicitOnto the next library book i loved this book all four of these stories are great reads andefinitely worth reading highly recommend this book Reviewed for wwwbookchickcitycom Divine Darkness is a compilation of short stories from four popular authors in the paranormal romance genre There has been a trend for compilations of this nature for a while and for the most part I ve avoided them There s a sceptical part of me that thinks that they re a bit of a marketing ploy I also often struggle with short stories and find myself wanting a bit etail and epthBut I took my sceptical hat off and sat back to enjoy my reading I ve read books by two of the authors before Gena Showalter and Maggie Shayne but not the other two So this gave me a chance to see if I would enjoy the other two author s writing styles stories I ve wanted to pick up a PC Cast book in particular for a whileThe first story of the book is by PC Cast and is obviously from one of her Never Tell developed series It tells of a healer who ends up falling for an enemy soldier It has a fantasy setting and not having read any of the other books I wasn t fully aware of the rules or background of the story Itid feel a bit rushed with the characters meeting on one ay and falling in love in the next That being said however the story intrigued me I very much liked the two leads and wanted to learn about them and the setting captured my imagination As a conseuence the first book of this series is now on my wish listThe second is Gena Showalter s we meet a sultry vampire Zane who is being held captive by a tribe of supernatural women They have captured a group of powerful men and then begin to battle to ecide who will mate with whom in order to produce the strongest children But Zane has a long lost love Nola who is being punished and exists invisible to everyone she can only watch as Zane is tortured Nola needs to break her curse in order to save both herself.
