Review: Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1)
Summary: In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.
The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

Review: 4-4.5
I'm not going to say much because there is way too much I could say. I love the characters, plot, twists, sex, fights, and love. Ward is a wonderful author and I will definitely seeing what the rest of the brothers are up to.

Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
Summary: One choice can transform you, or destroy you. Every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves, and herself, while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Review: 4
I am definitely falling for Roth's writing. I love this series and I loved the very end of this book. Honestly though I was really annoyed by Four's change in behavior with no cause. Makes you not like him and is kind of out of place for what you'd expect but I guess that is part of what makes it unique. I am most certainly dying to read the next book!! 

Review- The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

The Indigo Spell (Bloodlines, #3)
Summary: In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she finds herself struggling to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she meets alluring, rebellious Marcus Finch--a former Alchemist who escaped against all odds, and is now on the run. Marcus wants to teach Sydney the secrets he claims the Alchemists are hiding from her. But as he pushes her to rebel against the people who raised her, Sydney finds that breaking free is harder than she thought. There is an old and mysterious magic rooted deeply within her. And as she searches for an evil magic user targeting powerful young witches, she realizes that her only hope is to embrace her magical blood--or else she might be next.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, the Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive—this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone’s out for blood.

Rating/Review: 3.5-4
Honestly Richelle Mead's works have been some of my favorite. I'm a little disappointed by this spin off though. It 's like she stretches everything out so they are long books but not too much every really happened this time. I mean I understand the whole suspense thing but if I can put the book down for a couple days or weeks then something is wrong. I still love the characters and that Sydney is finally coming into her own being. I'm sure glade shes getting stronger or i would be getting bored. The end of the book did kind of make me wanna smack my head. Probably because all the potential problems but I'm afraid part of it is that now how is any fun gonna happy? Is any or is it just going to drag on?
