[Review] Colters' Woman (Colters' Legacy, #1) by Maya Banks

Colters' Woman (Colters' Legacy, #1)Colters' Woman by Maya Banks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This started out weird, verging on creepy...well, actually some bits were just straight out creepy. That had nothing to do with the three bothers all wanting a single woman to share between them, but from the way they approached the situation after finding Holly. Simply stating "We found you in the snow and decided you'll be married to all of us. You're a virgin? That's okay we'll all take you at the same time." Uh, just no. Other than that, I did enjoy this. I liked the running from a murderous husband plot, and I'm a sucker for happy endings, even if they are predictable.

[Review] Thorn Queen (Dark Swan, #2) by Richelle Mead

Thorn Queen (Dark Swan, #2)Thorn Queen by Richelle Mead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not sure what to say except that I literally could not put this down during the last few chapters. It grabbed at my emotions and just wouldn't let go. If you were unsure about this series after reading the first book, I'd definitely encourage you to read this one and then make up your mind.

[Review] Storm Born (Dark Swan, #1) by Richelle Mead

Storm Born (Dark Swan, #1)Storm Born by Richelle Mead
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While it was obviously a part of the plot, rape did not need to be mentioned on every other page. It really made me not want to continue reading, despite finding Eugenie badass (but that's no surprise) and the Otherworld interesting. With that out of the way...

I must say that I'm a Mead-aholic. This is the beginning of what I expect to be another great series from an amazing author. Mead has created another kickass heroine, who I can't help but love. Eugenie, aka Odile, is a shaman which is a very welcome change from all of the vampires, shifters, and other creatures of the night. She banishes unwieldy spirits from our world back into the Otherworld (and sometimes to the Underworld), but Storm Born brings Eugenie into that fantastical realm. I absolutely loved what was shown of the Otherworld so far, because it wasn't overdone. It's much like our world, minus the technology, and with supernatural creatures inhabiting it.

And Dorian! He's quickly become one of my favorite male characters. I can't wait to find out what happens next!
