Kasey and his friends have kickass abilities. Once determined to help society, their last battle left Kasey almost dead. Disillusioned, they leave the city in search of peace and quiet.
But Kasey has a secret.
Ever since he escaped the cold fingers of death, strange things have been happening to him. His powers are running wild, and he’s starting to lose control. It doesn’t take long for his girlfriend, Blue, and the others to notice.
In the lush forests of northern Idaho, they meet a new hero who reveals the mystery of Kasey’s strange behavior, creating more questions than answers when she offers a terrible solution none of them can accept.
Worse still, Kasey will soon come face to face with the nightmares of his past: a new villain with frightening abilities.
Will the heroes find the strength to defeat their newest threat, and face the consequences of their mistakes? Or will Kasey be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice?

In the second installment of the Renegade Heroes series, we learn more about Kasey and how he came to be the man he is before his death. His past it brought up and he realizes that the past doesn’t always stay there. The team moves to Idaho, where they meet another person like them, named Rayne. She can see spirits, and turns out to have a special connection to Esme. But when Rayne explains what’s going on with Kasey, the team is filled with the truth of what Blue did; in bringing back the man she loved, they opened a rift that allowed the dead to come and go, and the only way to close it is for Kasey to die. This book had the amazing comedy that only Blue could give, but Rose also managed to give us a new perspective of how the world around them works, showing that it might not be as random as it all seemed. Blue’s tale isn’t as odd as she once thought, and the truth of what her mother did and who her twin sister is only opens the door to what other secrets are going around. What more will the learn in book 3, and will Avery find is own mate? If things dealing with these amazing people isn’t so random, then maybe the connection formed between select people, these amazing romantic bonds, might not be as random either, but just another piece of the design created by the one man that seems to link everyone together: Dr. Jakobi. Be sure to check this book out and get yourself caught up before book 3 comes out, giving us a look into the mind of Avery!

The 100 Season 4|Review

the-100-season-4-spoilers

This part of the 100 leads right up to Primfaya and how everyone is trying to deal with their survival. It is revealed before Allie is destroyed that the nuclear radiation is growing and is going to eventually kill everyone if they don’t find a safe place. Once Allie is destroyed, the grounders start to blame Skaikru (Sky people) for all of this, and tensions grow. Jasper is still struggling with the loss of Mia and feeling the pain of her death. Without a nightblood to take over as Commander, Ice Nation (Azgeda) has taken over Polis and is holding strong unless a commander can be found. Clarke saves Roan, in hopes that with him as King, and in her debt, he can hold off any wars to try and help all their people. Luna, the last surviving Nightblood, turns down the chance to be commander, because she can’t handle the death and destruction that comes with the title. But in going back to the island and finding Becca’s lab, they learn more about how the nightbloods were created and that the blood could save everyone from the radiation. Luna is tested on, before Clarke takes the serum and Abby breaks the only machine to test if the blood would work. Raven and Abby both must deal with the fact that their brains are being destroyed by what’s left of the Allie code, and unless they can find a way to get it out, they will die. Raven successfully gets the code out, but Abby isn’t so lucky. Instead of Clarke being able to become commander, a conclave is held. One member from each clan fights to decide what happens to the bunker in Polis that Jaha was able to find. Octavia manages to win, and announces that all the clans will be living together for 5 years, much to Jaha’s disapproval. Since Octavia won, Trikru followed her, and so did most of the grounders. With the choices made, everyone that is made to survive is in the bunker getting ready for Primfaya. Clarke, Bellamy, Murphy, Echo (Who was banished by Roan before his death), and a few others make it to the lab where Raven is at, but because they don’t have time to get back to the bunker, they make plans to go back into space, to the last ring of the Arc that is left.

the-100-season-4-episode-12-review-the-chosen

With the season Finale being Primfaya, we see what finally happens when the clock runs out. Octavia takes on the role of leader, wearing the Commander’s clothing and giving orders to the 1200 people in the bunker. With Indra at her side, there is hope everyone will survive. But when the death wave finally hits Polis, Raven reveals all the ways that they could die with how fast the radiation is coming, but none the less they still work to refurbish the 2-person shuttle for 8 people and make sure they all can survive. The crew (Minus Clarke) make it to the ring and prepare to survive. The episode then skips 6 years and 7 days and we see that Clarke survived, but there has been no word from the Arc or the bunker in all that time. We don’t know if any of them survived, but what we do see at the end of the episode is a ship landing, carrying new prisoners within it. We now have a new set of sky people landing on Earth, but there is no other indication of who they are or where they’re from.

This season was full of so much action and a great cast. There was so much death and destruction going on in Season 3, that Season 4 was about trying to rebuild even with the death wave coming for them all. Everyone was trying to survive, and while tensions were high, Clarke still managed to try and do the right thing. Roan still did what he needed to do as a King, and Echo proved to be loyal to Azgeda through the end. But like anyone else, she was trying to survive and found a way to do that. Jasper finally got his peace that he was waiting for, and the members of Arkadia that didn’t want to keep fighting got that peace as well. Everyone was trying to do what was best for their people, and in the end, it was Octavia that became the champion, the leader they all needed. She hated being known as the girl that hid under the floor, and mourned Lincoln’s death for as long as she could, but in the end, she became the leader everyone knew she could become, and managed to save the clans.

Praimfaya

The question now is, who are these new prisoners and where did they come from? How was it that Clarke survived when there were no positive tests done on nightblood? Did everyone in the Arc and the bunker survive and will we see them in Season 5? Where did Madi come from and how is she a nightblood now?

I cannot wait for Season 5 to come along so we can see what this 6-year leap will be all about and how the dynamic will change now that Skaikru would now be considered grounders, and there are some new people from the sky they should worry about. I’m also curious how the show has compared to the book and plan to spend the break between seasons reading the books and seeing what’s changed and what they kept the same. What I do know is, the 100 has done a great job to take these young adults and prove that they are all stronger than they ever thought they were. Survival has been the huge theme in this show and this season has been about everyone coming together to live. Hopefully we see the old cast come back and see how the 6-year leap has affected them.

The Witches Mage (Witch’s Alpha Book 2)| Review

51oKXsX8UbL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_

Her callous emotions are the influence behind her control of the weather-which all comes in handy as a resolution with the assistance of a very powerful Mage. Raine is a very sassy witch, and she’s not afraid to display it. Blonde hair, sapphire eyes, cute pair of tits and did I mention she can manipulate the weather? She’s adorable, great sense of humor, but she is scared to death. She’s in so much trouble and in mortal danger. To solve the conflict, she locates the professor and pleads for his help. This does not make him ecstatic however, he senses something about her that decidedly interests him. She must submit herself to him. She must become, his. He’s the only person who can save her and help her with this big freakin mess. Sebastian is a very dominant mage, and he fully intends to tame this brat. He’s solemn, intelligent, powerful but underneath it all, Raine can sense that he’s hiding a dark past within himself. He’s also protective, sweet and sometimes, he’s a little mischievous. As the days pass, he can’t deny this white-hot passion between them. He admires her spirit and her body that he longs to possess. However, if this whole Dom and Sub relationship agreement is going to work, they need to open their hearts, entirely. He’ll do anything to keep her. New Witches, new Demons. More domination, more kink. More sex. A prophesy that frights the hell out of any witch alive makes this story a journey full of action, comedy, supernatural romance and BDSM that is bound to make you grin (or nibble your lip. Have sexy time with your companion. Do the dab. Who knows.) Will Raine and Sebastian be able to stop the prophesy from coming true? Or are they already too late? Note: If you like your paranormal books hot and steamy, this is the book for you.

Once Upon A Time|Season 6 Review

1200x627-Q80_790e8e9e746b1839a0d2689b68b7794a

With the news of certain cast members not returning, it’s raised a lot of questions as to what is planned for OUAT Season 7. I think it’s important to look at the events of season 6 to look at why certain people left. Please be aware that there may be some spoilers for those that haven’t watched the show, but I will do my best to keep them to a minimum.

Are You Witchin’ Kidding Me| Review

Three friends. Three Witches. Three freakin’ stories. Our first story starts with Bethany, Laura and Raine as they go back to the house for a little slumber party. Dancing and drinking. Falling on their asses. Drinking some more. Girl talk. Did I mention drinking? Giggling. Casting a spell. You know, the usual when Witches get wasted. What could happen? Bethany, an earth Wiccan with luscious curves, is harboring a tragic past. One with her parents and the wolves, the other with an ex. She cringes thinking about her ex, he’s the reason why she left the BDSM lifestyle. However, a night out with the girls turns from fun to serious. She is suddenly drawn to a hunky Alpha werewolf who is unlike any man she’s ever met. Wesley, the charming hot Alpha, has been waiting for years to be with his one and only mate. Once he rushes out to rescue her from a demon, there’s no going back. He can’t let her go, not now, not ever. He’ll do anything to keep Bethany safe and claim her as his mate. Love her. Hold her. Dominate her, the way she was meant to be, proving that there is a reason why she needs to come back to BDSM. She needs her true Master. Stuck together in a life-threatening situation, there’s only two options for Bethany and Wesley. To stay and let the demon find them or run. And even though there is a demon on the loose, their fates are on the balance, the passion between these two lovers is so dangerously hot; neither of them can resist it.
