Strange Brew (Sookie Stackhouse #9.1)

by


Today’s hottest urban fantasy authors come together in this delicious brew that crackles and boils over with tales of powerful witches and dark magic!
In Charlaine Harris’ “Bacon,” a beautiful vampire joins forces with a witch from an ancient line to find out who killed her beloved husband. In “Seeing Eye” by Patricia Briggs, a blind witch helps sexy werewolf Tom Franklin find his missing brother—and helps him in more ways than either of them ever suspected.  And in Jim Butcher’s “Last Call,” wizard Harry Dresden takes on the darkest of dark powers—the ones who dare to mess with this favorite beer.
For anyone who’s ever wondered what lies beyond the limits of reality, who’s imagined the secret spaces where witches wield fearsome magic, come and drink deep. Let yourself fall under the spell of this bewitching collection!

My Thoughts....


This book was just okay. There were some good stories than not so great. These stories contained anthologies from other series of certain authors that we have all been reading of late.Felt that considering all of the famous and sort out authors in this book we would have been WOWED ! and that did not happen ,I expected more.Even if these are story stories you should put you best forward and still create a good entertaining story.For the price of these books these days I think its fair to expect certain things out of a book and this just fell short for me sorry.If you want to read recommend check your local library or swap a book with a friend.

If He's Wild (Wherlocke #3) by Hannah Howell

If He's Wild (Wherlocke #3)If He's Wild by Hannah Howell
An enchanting new novel from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell that will make you believe in the power of destiny-and desire-all over again... She Sees His Face Everywhere... Lady Alethea Vaughn Channing is haunted by a vision of a man in danger-the same man who she has seen in dreams time and time again. She doesn't even know his name, and yet she feels the connection between them, knows she is the only one standing between him and disaster. ...Yet They Have Never Met But rakish Lord Hartley Greville is capable of protecting himself, as he has proven more than once in his perilous work as a spy for the crown. If he's to carry out his duty, he'll need to put aside the achingly beautiful woman with the strange gift. And yet, when Alethea's visions reveal a plot that could endanger children, Hartley will not be able to ignore the destiny that binds them together-or resist the passion burning between them... Praise for Hannah Howell and If He's Wicked "Fans will gladly follow Howell from the Scottish Highlands to London for her new trilogy." -Publishers Weekly "The superbly talented Howell never disappoints." -Romantic Times

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Thoughts..........


What an adventure.Hannah's newest book with the Vaughan's and the Wherlocke's always are full of adventure. With all of them being such a close knit family and all and all with amazing different magical and healing abilities.Even those who are reclusive came out for this adventure.Thanks Mordred.Lady Alethea Vaughn Channing is haunted by a vision of a man in danger-the same man who she has seen in dreams time and time again. She doesn't even know his name, and yet she feels the connection between them, knows she is the only one standing between him and disaster. Lord Hartley Greville is soon to become a big part of Alethea life. Once she tells him of her visions he thinks she is a quack until she shows him all the sketches she has in detail of every dream she has had of him since childhood.Still not a believer quite yet but, once other members of the family get involved he has no choice to go along if he wants to find his niece and nephew that are in danger. It was quite endearing to see the cat a mouse game of love going on between the Rakish Marquis and the mousey magical seer .Another great spy adventure of Grenville having to play a loving suitor to a black-hearted Lady spy while all he can think about is a little mouse named Alethea and how to win her heart without blowing his cover. The book was filled with love romance and adventure all the things I love. Another thing I enjoy is Hannah's interactions with all our favorite characters book after book a positive for me.Enjoyable and recommended read.A Keeper!
