Dec book reviews Part 1


A Secret Past
Fiery redhead Stella Stonewall can’t decide between a margarita and a manhattan.
The rest of her life? Please. Stella has never really fit in, and her pretty world comes crashing down when she learns it was never her world at all.
Rowan Gresham is domineering, brooding, and as sexy as chocolate-dipped sin. When he transports Stella to the magical realm of her parents she recognizes her rightful place immediately. Gresham’s motivations are less clear.
A Scorching Chemistry
The enigmatic Gresham aids in Stella’s metamorphosis and their chemistry ignites, though a long-time girlfriend and a significant age difference stand in the way.
A Battle for the Rest of Her Life
Stella’s life fast-tracks to extraordinary when she enrolls at Radix Citadel for Supernatural Learning, an enchanted college whose students turn furry on the regular. As Stella learns to navigate the magical new world of Thayer she must also find her animal form, a task as elusive as her ancestry. Stella soon faces an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to learn to manipulate an animal
form she never knew she possessed.

Review: Uhhhhh, well where to start? For some reason this story reminded me of harry potter, but instead it is all fantasy creatures.To be honest I liked parts of the story and the more adult feel to it, but the story seemed shallow in a sense. During the whole story hardly any of Stella's questions are answered, but the developments come bam bam towards the end. I hated how super crappy Stella's mom was and to be honest some of the plot just made me go, huh. However, I think I could really enjoy the story once we get more into certain characters back stories.
