Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole

So, this series is fun. It's a paranormal romance. I really like how the author writes. She's good at making sure there's just enough detail to let the reader picture what's going on. No overkill with the details ( a big peeve of mine). She also is good with her character development. It's easy to relate and fall in love with some of the characters and then there are some you can just hate (bad guys, of course). It's almost sad that each book has a new set of characters that the story focuses on. I liked Emma and Lachlain so much I wanted to read more about them. They are mentioned in the other books but nothing like the book that "stars" them. Though this is a romantic series it's not a smutty book. There is more of a real storyline than just the characters falling in love and having sex all the time. I also liked the fact that there is very little vulgar language. I always find it more respectable when the author finds other ways for her characters to express themselves than simply cursing. Cole in particular just says the character is swearing oaths instead of being specific on what the character is saying.

So, I recommend this series. They are easy, quick reads that keep you entertained.

"Dead in the Family" by Charlaine Harris

I love this series but this one had some serious slow spots. It's definitely what I call a fluff book. It's basically just establishing the relationship between Sookie and Eric. If I weren't absolutely in LOVE with Eric Northman this book would have been very disappointing. Can't wait to see what she has in store for the next installment.

Burned- House of Night Novel by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

So, I finished this last night. I'm really not a fan of each chapter being told from a different character's POV. It's confusing and by the time you get back to the storyline that one character is telling you're like "Wait, what?" But, I do have to say it's MUCH better than Tempted. It's still a lot of fluff but it has more conflict and a real storyline than Tempted did. Oh and be prepared you'll be left hanging at the end of Burned just like you were at the end of Tempted

Stay tuned I've started the newly released Charlaine Harris-Sookie novel Dead In the Family
