Fifteen year-old Rae Kerrigan never really knew her family's history. Her mother and father died when she was young and it is only when she accepts a scholarship to the prestigious Guilder Boarding School in England that a mysterious family secret is revealed. As Rae struggles with new friends, a new school and a star-struck forbidden love, she must also face the ultimate challenge: receive a tattoo on her 16th birthday with specific powers that may bind her to an unspeakable darkness. It's up to Rae to undo the dark evil in her family's past and have a ray of hope for her future.

Loved this series but what a cliffhanger at the end. Will have to buy the next book in the series. Interesting characters, well described characters and locations. The tattoo concept is a new one for me.

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.

Nothing ever happens in Texarkana. At least, that’s what army veteran Isis Black thinks about her small Texas town. After her tour of duty with the 82nd Airborne, her homecoming has been marked by loneliness, isolation, and complete boredom. Her only friend in town is Bob, a homeless veteran who’s more than a little paranoid. Then, something astounding happens, and Texarkana gets a whole lot more interesting. Death herself has come to town, and she’s searching for an intern.

Loved the story with interesting characters but the reader was that terrible I was going to stop listening. Apart from repeating words and sentences you could hear the pages being turned. There was no change in voice for the different characters, which became quite confusing at times. Good story wrecked by the reader, pay the money for someone for professional.

My name is Ashryn Barker, and I’m here to shatter your illusions.

A girls' night out means three things to me: drinking whiskey with my best friend, trying not to kill anyone, and keeping my magic hidden. A fae gladiator like me isn’t supposed to exist anymore. But my Friday night takes a bad turn when a lethally gorgeous fae - Ruadan - tries to assassinate me. He's known as the Wraith, and he's taken a vow of silence until he’s slaughtered the outlaws on his kill list. Outlaws like me. Ruadan lets me live on one condition: I have to earn my place at the Institute of the Shadow Fae.

Loved the fact that the lead characters were female ‘empty nesters ‘ most books seem to have young beautiful fit females as their main characters. The mystery was well written keeping me wanting to know more. Some very real society issues explored, and some of the problems of getting older. Will definitely read more by this author.
