Full disclosure I received this book from the author for free in exchange for a fair review of her book.•Y’all. Y’ALLLLLLLLLLLLL. Ok so I wasn’t expecting to like this book as much as I did. I honestly am pissed that this is brand new and I can’t continue on with the other books in the series yet. The plot for this book is WILD but essentially it’s about this girl May. Her whole life has been one tragic even after another and after she finally decides to sell her family’s homestead to leave the bad memories (and luck) behind her whole world gets turned upside down. People she thought she knew are different than before and now she knows some terrible secrets about the world. Mostly she’s introduced to this new world of immortals through the Bryxx. Bryxx are these supernatural immortal people that are essentially vampires without the bloodlust???? idk but May’s blood makes her everyones’ target in the supernatural world. I know this description was shitty but I don’t know how to explain things without giving away major spoilers... Anyway I fucking loved it. I think it could have used some serious proofreading but other than that I enjoyed it. It made me laugh and cry. I never wanted it to end, and now I have to wait for her to release more. No TWs for this other than some old fashioned supernatural violence. Also no smut—I wouldn’t consider it a romance really but I could see it heading that way in future books and I’m here for it. Seriously I need people to read this so I can talk about spoilers with them hahahahahha. I think if you’re into big world building, the tv show Supernatural and Crazyhead, and maybe Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Neverwhere, you’d be into this.
I was sent this book for free by the author in return to do a review. This is my honest opinion. This book was surprisingly REALLY good! I started reading it this morning and didn’t want to stop reading it. I’m a little mad that I have to wait to read book #2! Until then I’ll be reading Tarisa Marie’s other books. This story has a great mixture of immortality, vampires, and romance! I loved the chemistry between Kade and May from the beginning. May and her great aunt go back to her childhood house in Montana where her brother went missing as a child, her father died, and her mom tries to kill her just after baking cookies( say what?). One thing leads to another and she learns that HER BROTHER IS NOT DEAD but he was turned immortal at young age and this is when we learn about the Bryxx. Over time we learn that May is special herself and she there is something in her blood that makes her wanted by every super natural creature. Uh thank the lord for Kade and his protection or May would be toast. There is one a couple of lines from this book that really hit me and after reading it was like wow! This couldn’t be truer about people’s character:“I’ve never not cared about others. It doesn’t matter what species they are. If they are good people, they have my acceptance. I’m not prejudice. Henry once told me that even had people should be greatly respected in some way because they are protagonists of their own stories. No one is born bad. Life makes us swing that way sometimes.”
I received this novel from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.Wow, this novel swept me off my feet and into a world full of vampires, demons and Bryxx and I wanted to stay there!Marie has created the perfect combination of love, loss, passion and pain, as well as created a world completely unique to any other vampire styled novel I have read.The characters are incredible, well rounded and diverse, I especially love the protagonist "May' and her tenacity, her strength and being able to see her grow in a realistic way really adds to this novel. She is honest and reacts in 'normal' human way, and I love that.The writing in this novel, makes it incredibly readable, each page flows into the next and before you know it, the whole book has been devoured in one sitting. I can't wait to read more in this series!Great read!
This is my honest opinion. I was sent this book for free by the author in return to do a review. ***Well what can i say! I finished the book in 2 days. I was sucked into Tarisa Marie's world instantly. The main characters May and Kade are filled with surprises, the supernatural world around makes you want to know more and explore further into the dynamics of its day to day routines. The characters are lovable and are easy to relate to. With each turn of event you have no clue to what might come up next. I can't wait to read book 2 of this series and enjoy the new paranormal romance that swifts you off your feet. On a more personal note: The author is absolutely sweet and kind.
Disclosure: I was given this book for free by the author in exchange for an honest review. My review of the story in no way, shape, or form, reflects directly on my opinion of the author.I am giving this story 3 stars.This story has an extremely intriguing plot line that kept me turning the page to find out more. Our main character, May, has just returned home after the death of her mother and is going about cleaning and selling the house she is set to inherit. May wants nothing to do with the home, the land, or the town that she grew up in. Odd things have always seemed to occur within the area, and her family seemed to be affected by it the most. Whether that meant a short lived life or eventually going mad, May took notice of these things and made the decision to rid herself of the troubles when the opportunity arose.When May is reunited with her brother, Daniel, her concerns and fears about the town they grew up in are confirmed. May is thrust into a world she never knew existed and is forced to make some choices that will forever change her life.I admit that this story had me hooked from the beginning and was definitely a page turner.However, it felt as if I were reading a first draft. Not a final and published copy. There were several instances were the writing felt forced, causing it to come off as redundant and overly flowery. There were more grammatical and punctuation errors then I was able to overlook and just continue on. Some run-on sentences were so long, in fact, that they could have easily been broken down into three or more sentences at times. The dialogue bothered me at times as well, feeling too proper for the type of characters speaking. It didn't always feel genuine.That being said, I think that the author has obvious story telling talents, but needs to find herself a better editor to assist her in revising her future manuscripts.I haven't yet decided whether or not I'm going to continue with this series, but might give it a shot just to see if the sequel is any more improved than this.
I can’t wait for book two. Really awesome.
