4.5 *Book source ~ Ma...

4.5 *Book source ~ Many thanks to Kensington for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Predatory is a paranormal romance anthology with four authors of which only Nina Bangs is new-to-me. To be completely honest, while I have enjoyed the works of Alexandra Ivy and Hannah Jayne in the past, I requested this book solely on the fact that it included Dianne Duvall's story about Richart from her Immortal Guardians series. I love, love, love the Immortal Guardians! Turns out, with this book, I had my wonderfully frosted cake and not only savored it, but had decadent ice cream, too. All of the stories were wonderful, if only a bit too short. Out of Control ~ Alexandra Ivy Series ~ Sentinels, #0.5 Angela Locke is a Ph.D student when gorgeous hunk of man Dr. Nikolo Bartrev walks into her lab. But Nikolo is not just a Dr. and Angela is about to find out she's not just a student. She has a crazy Sentinel after her and Nikolo is sent to guard her. Peril happens, sparks fly and there's humor. I love humor in my reads. A great introduction to a different take on the paranormal. I'm looking forward to more in this series. Ties That Bind ~ Nina Bangs Series ~ None known, but hoping so. Cassie doesn't like being around dead people, but when her friend calls with an emergency and needs Cassie to mind the shop, er funeral parlor, what's Cassie to do? Go hang with the deaduns, of course. She's thinking zombie apocalypse, but what she gets is much different when she discovers a naked guy (Ethan) in a glass coffin and two thugs almost kill her. Her life does a 180 after that. I really enjoyed this different take on vampires. Color me intrigued. I really hope this is the start of a new series because I may kick my little *cough* feet in a tantrum if it's not. In Still Darkness ~ Dianne Duvall Series ~ Immortal Guardians, #3.5 This is yummy Richart's story in the even yummier Immortal Guardian series. I need say no more. *pauses* What do you mean you haven't read the series?! *mind boggles* Get thee crackin' right now! You don't know what you're missing! *makes shooing motions* High Stake ~ Hannah Jayne Series ~ Underworld Detection Agency, #4.5 A little side story for the resident vampire, Nina LaShay, from the Underworld Detection series. She goes to New York for a fashion competition and instead ends up giving Sophie a run for her money in the dead-people-show-up-wherever-she-goes competition. Vlad is in this and a new interesting character shows up. I hope Pike sticks around. All-in-all a fun addition to the series.

Review courtesy of Dar...

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales Quick & Dirty: This anthology is full of steamy love, action, and unique characters. I enjoyed some of the stories more than others, and it wasn't a huge page turner, but lovers of paranormal romance might want to give it a try! The Review: Out Of Control by Alexandra Ivy - 2 out of 5 stars Well, this started out fine, but it went downhill from there. It seemed enjoyable enough at the beginning, and the author took her time in explaining and I had no problem with the writing style or anything else, but it's a whole other story as soon as the villain comes in. The antagonist didn't have enough motive to be one of those characters that make your spine tingle and your hairs stand on end. Honestly, if I didn't have to create a review for this, I wouldn't have kept reading. It was kind of ridiculous: the antagonist was chasing after Angela because she wants to be beautiful, and apparently Angela has a power to do that. If it was me, I would give up and just buy some face paint, or even try out plastic surgery. Maybe if the author had given readers a chance to see from her point of view, then we could understand how desperate she was to not look like she does. I lost my interest when I realized why Angela was being accosted constantly. Then there is Nico. He seems strong, smart, fast, and everything that a main character should be if they are jailkeepers of a place where magic users are imprisoned. But as soon as he gets closer to Angela, it almost feels as if half of his talent is tossed to the side, making his worth, at least in my eyes, decrease. He allows himself to be knocked out, he doesn't keep close enough watch on his "true love", and more. I didn't enjoy this very much, to sum it up. I definitely saw some positive in the first few pages, but after that my interest deflated. Ties That Bind by Nina Bangs - 4 out of 5 stars In my mind, this represents a lot of what a good old vampire story should be. Morbid and creepy, the tone is set immediately, and Cassie's personality immediately demonstrated. Cassie isn't the typical heroine. She is easily frightened, not very strong, and although she seems smart, there is a certain frailness about her. However, this is sort of a good thing in this plotline, and reminds me of Twilight. Cassie is similar to Bella, as are Edward and Ethan, Cassie's love interest. Their love is gentle at some times, and at others fiery and passionate. The romance was heartfelt and adorable. Ethan was both a fierce predator and a gentle lover, mixed into one little ball of conflicting emotions and 100 percent amazing. I'm not sure why I loved his character so much, but I think it was how his imperfections just made him cuter. Queue the cheesy music! Altogether, a good read. In Still Darkness by Dianne Duvall - 4 out of 5 stars In contrast to the first story of this anthology, I felt this started off uninteresting but became much better as it went on. This consistency was one of the only problems, the other being that the author doesn't fully explain what the character is until you are far into it, which is confusing. I love the relationships and the way that they are built up by Duvall. For example, Jenna and her son John have a very close relationship, and the bond is so close that it's obvious John's father's death brought them together. Also, Richart and Jenna's romance slowly builds, making for an exciting love story and a couple that you can't help but ahh at. Richart: an odd name. For the first twenty pages, I swear, I was reading "Richard" by accident. But I think the unusual name helps to show that the character is unique, and in a way Richart is better. Altogether, this is a sweet love story with just enough action, and also my favorite of these stories. High Stakes by Hannah Jayne - 3 out of 5 stars The irony of the name of this story, being that it is about vampires, is not lost on me. Be that as it may, I saw nothing that swayed me from making this just alright. The main character has a hilarious, girly personality (and she's a vampire...), but the love interest didn't counter her with any intriguing aspects, other than looks, so their love wasn't very balanced. Additionally, I didn't really connect with either character. There really isn't much I have to say about this one. It's not anything to rave about, but not anything to rant about. Feel free to try it out if you liked the other stories this anthology has to offer. FTC Advisory: Zebra/Kensington provided me with a copy of Predatory. No goody bags, sponsorships, "material connections," or bribes were exchanged for my review.

Review courtesy of All...

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy. PREDATORY shows the gamut that vampire mythology has run in genre fiction, containing short stories about everything from victims of maddening viruses to undead fashion designers. I picked up this book based on Dianne Duvall's name, and her short taste of the Immortal Guardians series didn't disappoint. If I hoped to find another series to sink my teeth into, however, PREDATORY left me empty handed. While Alexandra Ivy's short story was odd man out in magic (including X-men-esque super beings, not infected vampires), Hannah Jayne's "High Stakes" felt like the biggest departure in tone, featuring a vampiric heroine whose undead status is almost an afterthought behind fashion and a murder mystery. These two stories were also my least favorite. Ivy's "Out of Control" spent too much time introducing me to a mythology that was too derivative to hold my attention, and not enough time making me care about the hero and heroine. "High Stakes" wasn't a bad story, but having such a light, fluffy story follow the more solid Paranormal Romance offerings by Nina Bangs and Dianne Duvall meant I ended reading this anthology on a low note. Bangs's mythology was quickly and effectively developed, and her heroine certainly had me interested in reading more. Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians is really well paced, even in this shorter format, and I finished "In Still Darkness" eager to catch up with the rest of the series. Of the four stories in PREDATORY, I broke even on those that held my attention, and that brought my rating down to 2 bats. While I do love this format when it introduces me to new creations, or reminds me of old favorites, this mix of novellas didn't wow me over all. Though PREDATORY probably won't make it off my shelf again, for fans of Paranormal Romance, you may find something worth getting excited about. Sexual Content: Sex scenes
