#RileyAmosReviews, you can call me a slacker edition, part 1!

So these arrived yesterday, and I must have missed them. You all can call me a slacker, I know it’s true.

Beautiful Monster – The Exchange , by Jeanne Bannon

I think this was a very good vampire and ghost love story.  It caught my attention at the beginning and kept it through out the book.  I would recommend this book to anyone who likes vampire or ghost stories.  * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  4/5

#RileyAmosReviews, Sara’s got one for ya today edition!

The melding of Aeris

by

Diane Wallace Peach

Transmutation : the application and grafting of distinctive flesh from varying sources on to a foreign living body with the medicinal assistance of douser, heartening, and pathway.

 

The high caste preys on the lower, treating them as renewable resources. If a Sahlessa sees hair or eyes that she wants on a low person, then deals are made,(sometimes). End result is a new pretty feature for the Sahlessa, and “sourced” parts for the “donor”.

 

Popular transfigurations for women include bird’s wings, butterflies, soft fur, feathers, peacock tails, snakeskin. Thicker hair (animal or human) Basically anything shiny and pretty in the usual non aggressive sense,punctuated by bursts of color.

 

Popular transfigurations for men include horns of all types, serrated teeth in arms, armored skin, reptile embellishments, various predatory animal parts, eyes,fur. Mostly defensive/ aggressive appearances desired.

 

Those subjected to transfiguration……pass their new attributes on to their children, oft-times with less than favorable results.

 

Meet Aeris, a progeny of such a pairing. His father Sahl Farrax, intimidating in his mostly black reptile scaled self. His mother, Sahlessa Alginea, resplendent as the epitome of transfigured fashion with her graceful wings of black, gray, and white. An affluent and influential pair.

Now that there’s sufficient backstory,…Aeris! Borne into the world completely hairless covered in black scales, with a reptile’s eyes, random light feathers that he plucks and a lizard’s tail that was severed at birth. Sheltered in the confines of his parent’s palatial estate, he is their much loved only child. Graced with his mother’s pleasantness and fortified with his father’s determination, and a good heart. He despises his outward visage, it makes him feel like a monster. His parents, being loving and supportive want their son to live a happy meaningful life, so they arrange for him to get new skin, new eyes, and hair for the very first time in his life.

What their son discovers about his new appearance shocks him to the core.

 

Join Aeris on an epic journey as he discovers the chilling abusive reality behind the lust for   the latest fashionable transfigurations and his own self worth as he fights for redemption, love, friendship, and acceptance in a world so focused on appearances and power.

An enjoyable read, Five Stars! *I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.*

So, another favorable review for ya Diane. If I can ever work my pile down, I’ll have to read both of them, since Sara seems to love them very much.

A disturbing trend I’ve been noticing.

I’m starting to think Levitra and Car Insurance companies are after me. I don’t know about the rest of you bloggers, but I check my spam file on a regular basis, as I LOVE to communicate with new people. There are over 1000 comments in the file! I just checked it two days ago!

So I start flicking through what people are putting, and what I see is Car Insurance, Levitra, Levitra, Male Impotence, Car Insurance, Car Insurance, as the names to these people. What makes it even funnier to me, is if I were to JUST read some of the comments, they would almost past muster. Things like, “Oh, this post is very informative!” and I click to see what it links to, and it goes to one of my book reviews. I know they can be informative, but with a name like “unedlevitra247” I know it’s just bullshit. Hell, as I’ve written this, another 200 comments have dropped in the file. I just might have to take a bulk action and delete them all. So, I’m saying it now, if I delete your comment and you are a PERSON, I’m sorry. I wasn’t ignoring you, or trying to say I didn’t like what you said, you can blame it on Levitra and the Car Insurance companies.

Destiny , by S.M. Spencer

Good twist one vampire story for sure.  I love the modern vampires being able to live among us common people.  This book kept me wanting to read more the whole time.  I had a busy day today on a day off and I read this book every chance I got.  Love it!  Can’t wait for book 2.  * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  5/5

Ice , by Jessica Wren

This book was a good book too.  This book kind of reminded me of the “Tomorrow People” TV show, in a way.  But most the town had this unique ability. Life in small town Minterville is a town that kept in interest through out the book.  I enjoyed the book and it’s town and characters very much.  If you are looking for something a little different to read, check this book out. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  5/5
