2.5 stars rounded up YA coming of age story Multiple types of paranormals 17 year old action heroine is superb sniper Girl graduates HS Her dad is the Army s top sniper, frequently overseas No Mom She is second nationally at sniping only to dad He s away on 2 month mission so feds recruit her to temporarily join paranormal hunting team.Novel is set in Denver but local place names are omitted Dad is in Army, heroine will join at the end of summer but real world army details are missing Not a lot of depth in characters.What I liked best were the range of talents possessed by the 7 bad guys and gals monsters No cliffhanger but good setup for the next book. Better then expected Well first off this book was free And like my title says better than I thought it would be, I had low expectations and was spoiled for the big secret But it was still pretty enjoyable Lexi was a different narrator and seemed so much younger then the rest of the team The bad guys they where chasing seemed pretty easy to stop I mean for all the talk about it, it was pretty quick I wish the story had different points of view, maybe that would have added to the story But all in all a nice quick read. Alexis Levine Has Just Graduated From High School And Intends To Join The Army As Soon As She Turns Eighteen Her Dream Is To Become A Sniper, Just Like Her Often Absent Father During Routine Weapons Practice, She Meets Mark Steel, The Head Of A Small Team Of Agents Who Work For A Mysterious Organization He Needs Someone With Outstanding Skills To Help His Squad Destroy Seven Psychotic Psychics With Her Father Overseas On A Mission, She Is The Next Best Choice Still Reeling From The Knowledge That Psychics Actually Exist, Lexi Agrees To Become A Temporary Member Of Their Team From The First Moment That She Meets Reece Garrett, She Is Instantly Drawn To Him He Is Strong, Sexy And Charismatic And Unfortunately Thinks Of Her As Little Than A Child Agent Garrett And His Team Have A Secret That Few People Are Aware Of They Are Shape Shifters Who Transform Into Ravenous Beasts With Every Full Moon The Upside Of Being Shifters Is That They Possess A Natural Resistance To Mind Control, Which Makes Them The Perfect Team To Hunt The Psychics But Reece Soon Learns That Some Instincts Are Impossible For Even Him To Deny Caught In A Mind Trap That He Can T Escape From, He Finds Himself Irresistibly Attracted To The One Person That He D Do Anything To Protect This is an OK read, it started out really well but it dragged towards the end and I feel as though the story got a little lost in the minute The main character is Alex, a high school graduate who joins a squad that hunts real bad guys There are seven psychic killers on the loose and ruining people s lives and Alex and the rest of the team have to catch them to save lives Alex actually starts off really well but she gets sucked into a romance story that detracts from the story There are a lot of secondary characters and I didn t actually find any of them all that interesting The storyline was a bit lost in the romance that I didn t think added anything to the book The pacing was actually the biggest let down, this book started out really well but it dragged towards the middle then just completely dropped off.3 stars, not the best. Loved it Absolutely will read on.It s fluffy fun brain candy with endearing characters and an interesting take on the Shifter deal Good times Action packed and a nice start to a sweet paranormal YA series It took me a little while to connect with Lexi, but now I simply can t wait to know The story really captured my attention. Have to admit, the only reasons I read this one was, a, it had a ridiculous title, b, ridiculous concept, c, it was free Now I m onto book 4 in 3 days SURPRISE Well yes I was It s not a complete, well rounded world, but there aren t really any gapping holes The characters are good and the stories and threads keep it interesting The series is now a fab and regularly reread 1018 0619 Thank you lord baby Jesus in the manger A kick ass leading lady that doesn t cower behind every corner Throw in a couple guns, some smoky hot steam and you got yourself one hell of a story My main emotion concerning this novel is DISAPPOINTMENT it was a DNF so first impressions i guess I read the sample and thought the MC was a strong independent woman and didn t need a man NO JOKE I loved that she was an expert sniper and her skills were sought out by the elite TAK squad and didn t spend much time talking about dating, makeup, or etc except it was just to set ground that she doesn t think about it The author went out of her way to make her MC the badass character who doesn t automatically see guys as dating materialexcept she does when she meets whatshisface from the squad The MC that was trying to be unique went full cliche and starts falling all over herself for this guy.It was lust at first sight of course which includes abs, biceps, douchey fohawks, and not realizing the man really DOES NOT want you there but that just adds to the romance right gives the so not totally cliche I totally don t want you here hate into I can t live without you kinda love And then she constantly makes an idiot out of herself ever since Are you so seriously lusting after this guy that you spread your peanut butter on the counter and not the bread WTF.OK I get the idea of going totally brain dead at the sight of seeing a hot guy right out of the shower but since the MC is supposed to be this badass she has a bunch of instances of hiding her emotions and seem like the perfect soldier like being cool over seeing a dead body for the first time, but freaks the f ck out at the first sight of aaaaaaaabbbbbbbssssssss falls to floor brain leaks out of ear 3.5 stars and I will definitly read the next book in this series It could be even stars, if somebody just smack H and h heads together, and force them to talk to each other.
I began reading horror and paranormal books when most girls my age were still reading fairy stories I always dreamed that one day I would be able to write stories that readers could become lost in.The Mortis, Shifter Squad, Hellscourge and Fate s Warriors series are connected, but can be read as stand alone series The overarching theme about Fate s chosen champions will come to an end with my fi
