A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot—a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel is put in danger—in more ways than one.

NightShade by Andera Cremer

Relase Date: Oct. 19th

Goodreads Summary:

Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

Rampant (Killer Unicorns #1) by Diana Peterfreund

Goodreads Summary:

Forget everything you ever knew about unicorns... Real unicorns are venomous, man-eating monsters with huge fangs and razor-sharp horns. Fortunately, they've been extinct for a hundred and fifty years. Or not. Astrid had always scoffed at her eccentric mother's stories about killer unicorns. But when one of the monsters attacks her boyfriend—thereby ruining any chance of him taking her to the prom—Astrid finds herself headed to Rome to train as a unicorn hunter at the ancient cloisters the hunters have used for centuries. However, at the cloisters all is not what it seems. Outside, the unicorns wait to attack. And within, Astrid faces other, unexpected threats: from the crumbling, bone-covered walls that vibrate with a terrible power to the hidden agendas of her fellow hunters to—perhaps most dangerously of all—her growing attraction to a handsome art student ... an attraction that could jeopardize everything.

Banished by Sophie Littlefield

Relase Date: Oct 12th.
Goodreads Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Hailey Tarbell can’t wait for the day she’ll leave Gypsum, Missouri, far behind, taking only four-year-old Chub, the developmentally-delayed little boy her cruel drug-dealing grandmother fosters for the state money. But when a freak accident in gym class leaves a girl in critical condition, Hailey feels drawn to lay her hands on the injured girl and an astonishing healing takes place. Before Hailey can understand her new powers, a beautiful stranger shows up…just in time to save her and Chub from hired killers. A desperate race begins, with Hailey as the ultimate prize: there are those who will stop at nothing to harness her gifts to create an undefeatable army of the undead. Now it is up to Hailey and a small but determined family of healers to stand up to the unbelievable and face the unthinkable.

Book description:

Weird as it is working for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, Evie's always thought of herself as normal. Sure, her best friend is a mermaid, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals' glamours, but still. Normal. Only now paranormals are dying, and Evie's dreams are filled with haunting voices and mysterious prophecies. She soon realizes that there may be a link between her abilities and the sudden rash of deaths. Not only that, but she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures. So much for normal.

My Review:

This story is unlike anything I've ever read or anything that I've seen on TV; it is very unique. Evie was found when she was eight years old wandering in a graveyard where she stumbled upon a vampire that the IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) was in the middle of "tagging". Because she could see threw there "glamor" they were forced to raise her in order to keep her quite. She's now 16 and works for the IPCA bagging and tagging other paranormals such as, hags, werewolfs, and vampires. One night a boy, (water boy, aka Lend), breaks into the IPCA; Evie taszers him and puts a tracker on his ankle. They lock him up and try to find out why he was there and who he works for. Paranormals start dropping like flies and the IPCA has no idea what is going on. Water boy has his own theory but he will not open up to anyone about the prophecy he knows. The killing spree keeps getting worse and the IPCA goes on lock down. Two days later, everything changes for Evie, her world will never be the same.

This book goes right into action when you first open it, it has its funny parts, and sweet parts and so fourth. It's not that bad of abook at all, once you get use to everything about it, because the plot is the most weirdest one ever. It is fresh and a short read. The second book Supernaturally comes out the fall of next year.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

This is a very clean book, there is some kissing scenes in it but nothing bad. There's really no language in it, unless you want to count *bleep* or when they are referring to Hell.

Last night was the starting of season 7 to Grey's Anatomy, I just started watching this show, I rented every season last month. I love the show, and I have loved almost all of the episodes, but last nights wasn't what I expected, or hoped for. All I can do is wait and see if this season gets any better and Derek will straighten his butt out. hmph.

Well, that's pretty much it. Until I'm done reading Paranormalcy
