The Order Box Set ~ Nina Croft

The order

Bittersweet Blood ~ What would you do if you found out that your ENTIRE life was nothing more than a lie? That the world you lived in wasn’t exactly what you thought it was? Welcome to Tara Collins life. Ever since her aunt “died” Tara has come to find out that nothing she thought she knew is the truth & she wants to learn why.
Enter in Christian Roth who runs a PI firm. When this ‘man’ starts looking for the answers, it’s not something that Tara is willing to believe or want to believe.

But willing or wanting doesn’t matter because Christian’s past collides with Tara’s future. Will she be able to make out of this alive? Can Christian stop a demon who wants nothing more than to destroy everything Christian loves?

Bittersweet Magic ~ To avoid being burned at the stake (about 500 yrs. ago) Rosamund Fairfax (Roz) prayed to God but when he didn’t answer, she prayed to a demon (and she got Asmodai) … and made a deal that is almost paid off. Until a psychotic Vamp takes off with the Key. (Lucky for us, there are no individuals who turn this “key” into a human child!) Then he leaves the only Nun marked  but with a message for Piers Lamont.
That simple mission to end the tie to a demon just got quite complicated. Piers is currently the Vamp in charge of the Order … one that Asmodai (Ash in the human world) has told her would destroy her & other “abominations.” After all, why would a DEMON lie?

Piers finds out that the demon queen (and the psychotic vamp) that he imprisoned over 2000 yrs. ago is  free. She wants the key & him back into her life. Only problem is that Piers would prefer to have NOTHING to do with the creature to stole away his chance of being reincarnated.

Bittersweet Darkness ~ To create an amulet (to protect his daughter) Asmodai (Ash Delacourt) becomes indebted to Lucifer. To pay off this debt & have the seal removed, he must begin working with the Order of Shadow Accords. (Yes, there a many questions that come behind WHY Lucifer would want this, but sadly none o them are answered in this story. Fingers crossed as to possible a book simply for that?)
Detective Faith Connolly finds herself wrapped up in a conflict between two organizations … one that has began investigating her former partners new employer & will discover the answer they believe at any cost & the Order. The slime oozing off her NEW boss is just too much for her to tolerate. Plus it is discovered that this organization might be responsible for her mother’s death & the reason she simply cannot/will not believe in anything paranormal.

Can the Order begin preparing Earth for the knowledge that Demons, Angels, Fae, & other paranormal creatures exist? Or will this other organization destroy them before they can get a foot in the door?

Bittersweet Freedom ~ Best way to track down a shifter? Send a werewolf after her!
Poor Carl must hunt down the cat shifter who stole demon gold from Asmodai. Pity that Shera would rather DIE than keep living bound to Asmodai.
Asmodai has turned to Shera’s demon father to take her in because he believes there is an “issue” between Faith & Shera. Shera decides to run instead before she is able to learn Asmodai’s plan.
What Shera does not know is that she is 1/2 demon. Which is why all the changes occurring with her are freighting. Carl knows, but he is under direct orders NOT to tell Shera. But Carl does not know the full extent of Asmodai’s plan either, so he joins Shera on her run. Hoping to convince her that she must return to the demon dimension before the bound destroys her.

 

Ms. Croft has created one hades of a world. Where there are different dimensions for demons, fae & even one for angels. She creates an Order that keeps peace on the Earth, putting a stop to Demon & Fae wars … this Order is run by Vampires. (And from the description of them, SMOKING Vamps out to save the world.)

Fighting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles #1) ~ Amelia Hutchins

fighting destiny

Ms. Hutchins has pulled out all stops on this book. This is not a typical Fae story. From various Fae, Witches, Vampires (who are Fae), to Humans … she brings them all together in a world recovering from the shock that “we are not alone.” (LOL yea I know that’s more a science fiction term, but it works pretty good hear.)

This story starts off with a mission, one that Syn is not exactly thrilled to be doing. Stealing the Dark Prince’s Fae crown, a job that could get the entire team killed if one things goes wrong. And boy does it go wrong.
I gave a wicked little grin at my success & step through the door – straight into the line of fire of the guns pointed at my face. I swallowed & looked around, calculating my chances of escape. I met a pair of eyes so golden it startled me. The face they belonged to was harsh & beautifully masculine. Shit.
’Abort; that’s a direct order,’ I said, my voice more calm than I was feeling.
’Syn?’ Adam shouted.
’Run.’

Syn is wanted so that the Fae can find an assassin, who appears to be looking to target the Light Fae Heir. She is to pose as Arianna during an Engagement Ball, hoping to pull the assassins into the opening.

With every plan there is always something that steps in the way. They begin finding bodies of Fae & Witches, who have been tortured & have body parts taken from them. Syn must find out why they are doing this, with hopes of discovering who is doing this.

Nothing in this story follows the path you think it might. Just as you begin to put the pieces together, you are provided with something that throws it off track. Besides from discovering who the assassin is, you will find that there are more mysteries to solve in this tale.

Keep dreaming, man-whore.
Ms. Hutchins pulls this book together in a way that leaves you wanted to read the next for in the Fae Chronicles. She provides you with mysteries, humor, steamy sex scenes, murder … wrapping it altogether in an amazing tale.

Led Astray: Best of Kelly Armstrong ~ Kelly Armstrong

led astray

Ms. Armstrong is one of my favorite authors. I love the Otherworld series & read some of her other works. She builds characters & worlds, pulling you in with each sentence. Ms. Armstrong’s characters are complete, and you get to know they type of person she is creating in them. The worlds different from what we live in and she provides you with the details so you can see that.

Rakshashi
Rakshashi is an interesting tale of a woman who must complete assignments to correct the errors she made in her own life. She has been doing this for over 200 yrs., without being released. If she is released then her master’s family will have to find another way to get income to support themselves.

Kat tells you about a young woman who was tested on before she was taken away from it all. She was taught how to survive, but is on the run … is it because of the vampire who raised her or because those testing her want her back?

A Haunted House of Her Own is an interesting tale of a couple who are wanting to open a Haunted Bed & Breakfast. But is the house they are buying really haunted or is it just nerves spooking them?

Zoe Takano
Learning Curve is about a vampire who is being stalked. Zoe has been letting this stalker chase her for over 2 weeks. How will she handle this? Or will the stalker handle her instead?

The Screams of Dragons is a disturbing tale of a boy who is abused by his grandmother because of dreams he is having about castles. The grandmother fully believes in the folklore of how the Fae would swap their children with those of mankind. She drugs him, making him sick. She beats & refuses to let him eat at night. The parents … they turn a blind eye. This turns a beautiful child into something else. Something shockingly disturbing.

Kitsune’s Nine Tales
The Kitsune’s Nine Tales is about a warrior who was accused of deserting his troops during a battle, as well as being a sorcerer. A man must take this warrior to the Forest of the Dead, the his punishment for this crimes. The guards have been warned that this prisoner will try 9 times to convince them to turn him loose. They have been given the exact things that he will try. Will they make it there & back? Are the charges for the crimes accurate or completely false?

Last Stand is about the after effects of an antibiotic that destroys a good part of humankind. Creating two groups … those who were infected by the new virus and those who were not. One group is just trying to live, while the other is set out to destroy them. This group must decide who they are going to fight with so few individuals. Will they use the prisoners they have captured? Or will they simple parish?

Bamboozled is set in the Dakota Territory in 1877. You have a group that is set out to for thieving. They choose their targets and then work on completing that mission. But for some reason this “job” does not go exactly as planned. Some of the characters aren’t who they appear to be.

post-apocalyptic fortress
Branded is about the after effects of when the paranormal individuals or creatures have come out. Where human-kind has sealed themselves in away from what they fear. If they discover you have paranormal blood, you are branded and exiled. But they, also, use this for other crimes. In this story you read about a young man & woman, one is branded and exiled from the city. The other is distraught and not believing they punished the other correctly. How will they solve this? Will they be able to survive it?

black-and-white-horror-vampire-teeth-bite
The List is simple about a list that was provided of supposedly vampires in . Zoe is determined to listen to what this scientist has to say. She is amused that she is not on this list. She is, also, determined that Brittany (1/2 demon) learns more; educationally, self-defense & style-wise. They both go to listen to Dr. Adair lecture about vampires. Discussing the what he got close to being right about & what he did not. But when you have lectures about vampires, you bring out the strangest individuals & even some of the dangerous ones.
fire demon

Young Bloods is about two vampires who have created a bit of a crime issue in the city they arrived at recently. They are caught on a subway, where a passenger realizes they are the criminals leaving dead drained bodies around the city for the police to investigate. Will this passenger be able to make it off this subway car? Will any of the other passengers?
young vampire

 

opening door
The Door is a strange story. The child in the story has been told never to exit the front door, never to even go out it. She is allowed to be in the back yard, but never the front door. She is not to go over the fence, she must stay in the yard. It is about a small family, that grows to include another child. But the father dies after becoming ill, leaving it to the mother to collect food for her family. Sadly, going out the front door seems to be the reason of the illness. What is causing it? Will the two sisters be able to survive this?

Dead Flowers
Dead Flowers by the Roadside is about a man who looses his wife and child during a vehicle accident 3 months ago. He is devastated & depressed, barely making it though each day. All he wants is to see his wife & daughter again, but the ghosts he does see are not them. Nor will they help him find them or get a message to them … they completely avoid him because they know he will not help them now.

Suffer the Children is about a town/village that loose many individuals. Sadly most of them are children. The town is given a chance to “bring the children back from the dead.” There is a cost, financially & ethically. It comes down to what you would consider doing to get your child back … even from death.

puzzle
The Collector discusses different types of puzzles. As well as the person solving them. The woman enjoys solving them, as well as the story that go with them.

gargoyle
Gabriel’s Gargoyles is about finding the last gargoyle in Cainsville. In this story you learn what a great deal about Gabriel. He’s mature for his age, as well as determined to discover where the finally gargoyle is.

Harbinger is exactly what it says “a person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another.” In this case it happens to be the “spirits” of dead girls who were drowned. The reason for them being there is something that Jenna must discover on her own, because these “spirits” aren’t going to tell her at all.

Nicholas Sorrentino
V Plates, I about hit the floor laughing when I figured out what “v plates” meant. I love the Otherworld series, and this one has Nick watching over a teenage Pack mate. From the past stories that involved Nick, you know he’s a “playboy.” So how he handles this “problem” will prove to be interesting!
Nicholas Sorrentino

Life Sentence is simply about living & immortality. Everyone wants to live longer. Everyone would also like to be immune to everything. In this story, it is gone over in varies ways. How to become immortal. Pity that people don’t always see the down side.

Plan B is something you always need in life. But in this story, you will find that having a Plan B is REQUIRED.

the wild hunt
The Hunt teaches us that no matter what you hunt, there will always be something or someone out there to make you pay for what you did.

Dead to Me explores what happens when a person dies and has not been given what they are searching for.

mallt-y-nos
Devil May Care provides an interesting tale of a Fae who lives without responsibility. Oh, he might have an income … but other than that, he enjoys the lack of responsibility. He does not want to be be tied down. He does not want commitment. Sadly, fate or destiny might just jump in & slap you silly if you think you can live that.
