Betrayal Review

Welcome to my Review and Giveaway of Betrayal!



Scythe must save his brother's soul before the next full moon, Heather is determined to prove her sister's innocence, but to do this, they must trust each other. Heather Bowen, a drug and alcohol counselor, has always been able to see auras, but now she's being haunted in her sleep by a red-eyed man who's peddling a psychotic drug to her clients.After her sister becomes his next victim, Heather is determined to prove her sister's innocence. Life as she knows it becomes more unpredictable when the new counselor, Scythe Angel, arrives. It doesn't take Heather more than a first meeting to determine this larger than life man is commanding, pushy, determined and downright sexy. However there's something about him she's not sure she can trust, no matter how she finds herself drawn to him. Scythe knows he can clear Heather's sister's name, but to do it he must confront his elusive and dangerous brother who seems to be bound to the dark side. With his own wings on the line, Scythe has to discover a way to save his brother's soul before it's too late. An arduous task for Scythe becomes even more complicated by his unearthly attraction to Heather. For both of them to succeed they will have to learn to trust each other or fail; losing everything they hold dear.

Review:

How freaked out would you be if you started having horrible dreams of people you know dying and they are actually true!  And now you are a suspect in these horrible events.  That is what is happening to Heather. 

Enter the angle of death Scythe, who also turns out to be Heathers angle-mate.  Scythe has an evil twin brother Blade who is causing all these deaths and he must be stopped.


I liked the fact that Heather was not happy at all about being claimed by Scythe without any say in the matter which I found very realistic.  This was a very enthralling read that kept me turning pages and now I am forced to wait for the next book.  


I recommend this book to all mature readers.

Wicked Sense by Fabio Bueno MY REVIEW

     Witches inhabit our world, organized in covens and hiding behind a shroud of secrecy, the Veil.
     Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Skye’s job gets even trickier when she clashes with intimidating rival witch Jane and meets charming new classmate Drake.
     Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.
     Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity's immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.
     Going on a date has never been harder.

Fabio Bueno: 

Fabio writes Young Adult/Urban Fantasy/Paranormal novels. He resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and kids. When not writing or reading, he geeks out with family and friends, solidifies his reputation as the world’s slowest runner, and acts very snobbish about movies.
He’s also: author of YA paranormal WICKED SENSE, family man, gamer, “runner,” geek, kindle hugger, coffeeholic, x-men hopeful, district 3 tribute, hufflepuff, daydreamer.

REVIEW:
     I really hope Fabio Bueno is a fast writer because I want to read more from him!  
     I honestly could not put this book down and found myself up reading into the wee hours of the morning.
     I really like it when an author tells you at the beginning of a chapter who is speaking and narrating it. Fabio does just that in the title of each chapter so there is no guessing. He gave each character depth and personality, so you really got to know them and cheer them on. In Jane’s case you want to push her bike over!   Drake is so sweet and such a wonderful young man, if I had a daughter……ok enough being a match making mom.  Skye is strong and resourceful and just a sweetheart.  Boulder, Chase and Priscilla are great side characters and add so much to the story. I still am not sure how I feel about Connor, you will have to read the book and tell me what you think of him, man slut with entitlement issues comes to mind.  Fabio has provided a complete and complex cast of character for us to enjoy.
     The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of explanation in Drakes mom leaving the family.  I have a sneaking suspicion that she may come into play in the next book and there will be a really good reason she left.  Perhaps Fabio and give us some tidbits from the next book to ease our minds *grin* hint hint.
     This was such a new and unique view on witches and magic.  The world building around the covens and the school scene was amazing.  I really felt like I was there in the story and I love a read that can get me this involved.
     I recommend this book to all YA readers’ young and old, you will love this one!
