Review: The Blood Moon

The Blood Moon
The Blood Moon by David Neth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a great story and the Author is an amazing story teller.
(He was kind enough to gift me this audio book)

We continue the journey set in a magical universe.
(Taking notes, I’m learning some skills)

The characters are well developed, we can connect to them instantly.
Everyone has a task and their bond grows stronger in every chapter.

Be prepared to take some deep breaths.

Will is my favourite character… Today 🙂

I don’t want to write any spoilers,
but it’s a bit hard not to.

I can see this story like a movie, as my imagination grows with the characters.
Very well written, paced. I enjoy it.

The narration is awesome, helped me to look into the book with more detail.

I recommend this series to anyone.

Where’s the next book, David?

A closer look at the Florentines Series

↓Read my Reviews:

The Prince (The Florentine, #0.5)

The Prince (The Florentine, #0.5)The Prince by Sylvain Reynard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Re-read this time, English version
4,7* Past review:I welcomed the dark and all those stars in the sky,they look very appealing.

I read “The Raven” first and it did me no wrong 🙂 and let me tell you, I’m more curious now. I welcomed the dark and all those stars in the sky, they look very appealing.As well for the Professor. Is it me or Florence makes Gabriel naughtier? Loved all those dark characters and I, now, need to know more about Niccolo, Lorenzo, Ibarra and Aoibhe.

The Prince is a dangerous creature full of angst and shows no mercy, that inner battle worried me then and now, but would he change in the future? Ride on your Triumph and see your old friend. Hope as much as you need! The last battle, the physical one on the roof scared me. I know there is that hint of righteousness in him and I hope the sequel to “The Raven” will make him peace.

How could I forget Sylvain Reynard’s writing style, never! It’s tattooed in me.
This Novella like any other work of art that Sylvain writes was beautifully crafted.

Thank you Sylvain!
Don’t leave us hanging! I need the sequel…

The Raven (The Florentine #1)

The Raven (The Florentine, #1)The Raven by Sylvain Reynard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Added my review in the audio version earlier, now Paperback since I won the personalized one in a giveaway (Thank you), so it’s a re-read, though is the same review.
4,7*

I was transported to Florence.I miss it already and it left me very curious to continue investigating the entire city.I can see myself walking alone at night through those dark alleys, very mysterious places, indeed a magical world and in so many levels.

This story was painted beautifully, with such important details.

The author takes us on a tender and loving journey. I admire the fact that it wasn’t that supernatural intended… that’s the way I saw it. We all feel disabled in some way, at some point of our lives. Behind our everyday mask, we can also be very talented, but appreciated only by who can see us truly.

We learn to see behind the art of the painting, the story in it and how we interpret it. Restoring an old but beautiful piece of art can be hard, risky.
But there’s no other way to do it.

Thank you Sylvain for another wonderfully written and very imaginative story!

The Shadow (The Florentine #2)

The Shadow (The Florentine #2)
The Shadow by Sylvain Reynard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m listening to the last chapters of The Shadow and I couldn’t
expect anything less than extraordinary from you!Congratulations!

(I already knew it was going to be awesome )

Although I want to read it/listen to it again, it was so good to revisited all the characters. Dead ones and alive ones. Learning a lot about Florence and its dark corners, I have hope in the light and good people.I’m giving it another read, when my paperback comes.

I’ve been listening to my audible version, the last chapters are on loop… so I’ll do a more critical and hoping generous review! (:

My head hasn’t focus yet, I’m still fighting and rolling heads in a little alley in Florence…♥

I recommend The Florentine series, even if it is your first paranormal read, it will look like you are reading a romance thriller suspense mystery art and poetic story.

What are you waiting for? 🙂

Release of The Roman (The Florentine #3) 

by Sylvain Reynard

Raven and her sister, Cara, are at the mercy of a small detachment of Florentine vampyres, who are delivering them as a peace offering to the feared Curia in Rome.
Though she’s unsure William survived the coup that toppled his principality, Raven is determined to protect her sister at all costs, even if it means challenging Borek, the commander of the detachment.
In an effort to keep Raven from falling into the hands of his enemies, William puts himself at the mercy of the Roman, the dangerous and mysterious vampyre king of Italy. But the Roman is not what he expects …
Alliances and enmities will shift and merge as William struggles to save the woman he loves and his principality, without plunging the vampyre population into a world war.
This stunning conclusion to the Florentine series will take readers across Italy and beyond as the lovers fight to remain together. Forever.

Review: Behind Closed Doors

Behind Closed Doors
Behind Closed Doors by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lisa Renee Jones is one of my favourite authors to read.
So three years ago I’ve started reading Behind Closed Doors at Storage Treasures
because I couldn’t get enough, it was free at the time, but only a few chapters.

I was so happy to know after some dates and formats change, it became a full novel
and Ella from Careless whispers was in it but now, some of her secrets were revealed! What?

“A Storage Unit Bought. A secret found. Passion. Danger.”

What else could you want? A NetGalley gift to review for sure! Yay!

Buying a storage unit, brings Skye an unexpected excitement to her dull life.
She finds a key to a locker in a bus station, a mysterious note and a poker chip.

Skye and Jason meet under some interesting, yet dangerous kind of moment.
Maybe there’s not enough time for the couple to experience much because the storyline moves rapidly. But guess what? I love the way it’s going.

The plot is entertaining. The impulsive invitation to join a poker tournament in Vegas,
sets inner struggles and fears in Skye.

The constant need for spontaneous to stir her life in another direction and this sudden yet dangerous attraction, Mr. Trouble, a mystery of a man although very sweet, can she trust him?

Skye sure couldn’t get inside his head. Yet she was testing his limits since they first met.

Ella is another exciting part of this standalone and we learn more about who she was before she lost her memory. (I’m very curious now).

The Author is really good about keeping you guessing until the end, love it.
Engaging and intriguing. While this book has characters from other series, did I say it’s a standalone yet? You won’t get lost and I highly recommend it!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
