(Mageri #2)
By Dannika Dark

Months after moving to the mysterious city of Cognito, Silver is developing her gifts as a Mage and learning how to live under new laws. She is forced to give up her old life and live in secret among the humans. There is finally hope of leading an ordinary life . . .

Until Logan Cross walks into it.

Their chance meeting leads her close to discovering the identity of the nameless Mage who once stole her light and discovered the unique power she possesses. That knowledge poses an unimaginable threat to Silver, fueling the search to find out who he is before he finds her.

Lives are at stake. Truths are revealed. And an unexpected passion ignites.

My Review:

This book felt like a huge filler to me. It's either that or the only way the author found it in herself to introduce Logan Cross as a love interest. The story felt like it went in circles and the ending didn't really leave me satisfied because no one was caught. There were a scene or two that was heartwarming, but that's about it.

Silver seemed so naive, in this novel, to the point that it became a running joke in my head of 'What will Silver do next?'. The whole novel only happened because of her idiotic life threatening mistakes. Had she never opened the door or called to ask her guardian or Simon if she was supposed to be expecting someone, then at most she would have had to get out of there by car and meet up with them.

Logan rubbed me the wrong way from the moment he met Silver. Maybe I hold too tightly onto grudges, but I can't forgive someone for doing what he did in the beginning. I don't care about the extenuating circumstances. You don't do that to anyone, ever. He was sweet and protective, but I'm on team Justus.

I'm starting the think that I'm on the wrong side of this 'possible' love triangle because I ship Silver with Justus. So because of that I despised every moment with Logan. Though both men seem to be polar opposites of each other and I'm guessing that's the appeal. I don't like it in the least.

The ending was one of the few parts of the story that I adored. Her moment with Justus was incredible and I want to get to know him a little bit better. The moment with Finn was also high on my list of enjoyable moments. 

The Audio Book:

The narration was very good. I could distinguish between all the character voices. I have nothing but positive things to say about this audio book.

My Ramblings: Crack Ships & Why I Will Defend Them


Crack Ships & Why I Will Defend Them

* If you have not read any of the series mentioned below be warned of spoilers!
* Series linked to Goodreads.

I was introduced to the concept of a 'crack ship' by Shannon from It Starts At Midnight. Up until her post I had no idea this even existed (even though I often find myself on the wrong side of love triangles). For clarification here's the Urban Dictionary definition for a 'crack ship':


This may not come as a surprise to you (or maybe it will), but most books I read I usually side with the unconventional pairing. Sometimes I luck out and at the end the guy I was rooting for was the 'correct' guy all along (but it was a grueling journey of self doubt to get there).

These are the crackships I will defend/support to the death:

1. Bella Swan & Jacob - Twilight Series By Stephenie Meyer

After Edward left because he was 'protecting' her, he was dead to me. That is no way to deal with conflict. 


So full disclosure, this may technically not be a crack ship, but I can't bring myself to finish the series so I don't know for sure. So this gets included in this 'list'.

3. Mercy Thompson & Samuel - Mercy Thompson Series By Patricia Briggs

To this day, I don't really like Adam. I feel like I didn't know what I was going into, with this book because since the beginning Adam came off very abrasive. I ended up concluding that he was always going to be 'the enemy' of the story. So when he became a love interest I didn't know what to think.

4. Lucinda Price & Cam - Fallen Series By Lauren Kate

Daniel is all over the place. One moment he saves her, the next he doesn't acknowledge that she exists. I prefer Cam, who treated her well the whole novel and made an effort to know who she was instead of forcing the destiny spiel on her.

5. Dru Anderson & Graves - Strange Angels By Lili St. Crow

I adored this series until that ending. What hurts the most in this book is that there's no right or wrong answer because Dru never actually chooses someone.


I don't know why I prefer Hunter over the other guy considering the circumstances that surround them. I recognize that I may be on the side of a kidnapper/almost-but-not-quite-there-rapist (because of extenuating circumstances). I didn't like the other guy. He was whiny and annoying while spouting I-love-yous after realizing (a day earlier) that he wanted her. Heck, I'm just now realizing that deep down both love interests sucked.

Do you agree with me?

The Power Of Book Covers: Keystone By Dannika Dark


They say don't judge a book by it's movie...err...COVER. 
BUT they never said we couldn't PRAISE them.

This week's cover:

Keystone
(Crossbreed #1)
By Dannika Dark

Narrator: Nicole Poole
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Length: 10 hours and 18 minutes

Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn’t the only reason she’s hiding from the law. Half Vampire, half Mage, she’s spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian Shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp. The catch? Her new partner is Christian Poe - a smug, handsome Vampire whom she’d rather stake than go on a stakeout with.

They're hot on the trail of a human killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. One misstep during her probationary period could jeopardize Raven’s chance at redemption, and her partner would love nothing more than to see her fail. Will Raven find the courage to succeed, or will she give in to her dark nature?

Dark secrets, unexpected twists, and a blurred line between good and evil will keep you on the edge of your seat.
