Before Sunrise it happens all over again again except this time it s Faerie that makes its presence known I really enjoyed watching some of the lose ends left over from the first installment come into play and propel the story forward It s rare for me to love an author s world as much as her characters but in this instance I find myself enad by both Ooh Darian where o I even begin I understand that she s just had the proverbial rug pulled out from under her but talk about frustrating I just wanted to strangle her Over and over again Her Hunter Killer (Pike Logan decisions are uestionable but if you take her past into consideration they then become understandable As Amanda kindly pointed out to me This book is her hitting bottom The good thing about bottoming out is the fact that you can only

Bastards, development at its best Darian s commitment to her friendship with Raif is admirable and her love for Tyler is limitless but when the two men in her life end up at odds all hell breaks lose This is when a few of her uestionableecisions really come into play In my eyes the right call was obvious from the get go but Darian likes to The Friend Zone do things the hard way I personally think that she chose wrong but then again I guess that s how we learn from our mistakes I understand why the book ended the way that itid but that Flying Scotsman Manual doesn t mean that I have to like it Blood Before Sunriseelivers a one of a kind story with as many highs as there are lows in other words it ll rock your world Fuck it What was Alpha (Shifters, done wasone I Whalerider d walked through

anything like this ever again And in the end Darian knows her issues and learns from her mistakes She grows so much #in this book her character growth is absolutely phenomenal in this installment that

the book Okay love might be the wrong word here but I id appreciate it It s real and it made senseno matter how much it sucked It s all part of Darian s learning curve and seeing that he understands

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy and you have not tried the Shaede Assassin books you are really missing out These books bowl me over with fantastic world building and characters I care Werewolf Smackdown (Felix Gomez, deeply about This book took me on a wild ride that kept me on the edge of my seat until the big emotional finish that left me shreddedThe story picks up several months after the events of Shaedes of Gray Darian is happy and in love with Tyler Together with Raif and Xander s men they are searching for the Oracle who escaped at the end of the last book Things get complicated once they find her and she reveals that Raif saughter is alive and she knows where to find her Raif can t allow himself to believe it s true but Darian can t ignore the possibility So she makes it her mission to find the girl who has been lost for centuriesAt this point a ton of stuff starts piling up on Darian s plate She starts having terrifying My Jesus Year dreams and visions filled with cryptic prophesies she can t understand The Oracle gets placed in the custody of supernatural law enforcement forcing Darian to make an unsavory alliance to get access to her again Plus there is something seriously wrong with Ty He is flying into jealous rages losing his self control And he says there is a problem with their bondIt s really all too much for Darian to take on at once She tries But her actions merely accentuate her character flaws She is impetuous and over confident She is unable to trust in others to allow them to help her And it s in her inability to reach out and share her burdens that she makes terrible mistakes and some Very Bad DecisionsIo believe Darian s heart is in the right place though So while she frustrates me I still empathize with her I love love love Ty even though he is batshit crazy at times I spent the entire book in constant fear that Darian would break her bond with him for his own good And Raif He s such an interesting character and I adore his relationship with Darian I understand why she feels so loyal him Xander eh I could take or leaveAmanda Bonilla opens up her world even in this story taking us inside the Fae world and explaining about what makes Darian so special It s Try This different Uniue My only beef is one Darian shares toward the end of the book which is Why the Hellidn t anyone tell her what she was If two relevant characters would have just taken a moment to explain things it would have saved everyone a lot of pain and heartbreakYes I said heartbreak I feel hollow in my chest The Mistress Diaries (Pembroke Palace, dammit How am I going to wait until March for this all to be fixed Are you listening Amanda Bonilla This must be fixed Or I am breaking up with youRating A ARC provided by author for review 45 starsPosted on Under the CoversDarian s too list just keeps getting longer In BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE Darian has her hands full as she tries to reacuaint Raif the man whom she loves as a brother with his The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl daughter It sounds simple enough right However things seldom are for Darian Her boyfriend Ty is attacked and things only begin to worsen from thereReaders who loved SHAEDES OF GRAY will surely get a kick out of this book I enjoyed the first book of this series but I can truly say that Ms Bonilla has outdone herself Not only is this book action packed from beginning to end but Bonilla fuses interesting elements together that make for a world that is totally uniue and engagingThe Fae world is explained inetail and along with that stories of characters that are tied to the world are revealed as well There is one character that was particularly compelling to me In his very first scene Fallon intrigued me I instantly wanted to know about this mysterious Fae warrior and Bonilla Poisonous Snakes delivered his stories in spades My emotions were tugged from opposite ends of the corner as easily as his emotions changed Any author who is able to make me love a character change my mind and then redeem him is spectacular in my eyes I would love to read about FallonIn this book I noticed that there is emphasis on Ty and Darian s relationship I loved reading about the romance because it was interesting to see how a woman as independent as Darian find a balance to be in a relationship with a man as protective and possessive as Ty In SHAEDES OF GRAY sometimes I felt that Darian pushed Ty away too much and itid nothing but make her feel lonely She has survived alone for so long so how Dirty Deeds (Mechanics of Love, does she let go of that independence she grips so tightly to and open herself up to Ty It s not always pleasant They argue and get jealous of others but Iefinitely saw some growth in character on Darian s part With the way the book ended I am Infinite Repeat (The Art of Lainey, dying for the next oneBLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE is a tightly written edge of your seat read Youo not want to miss out

complicated and when they finally find her she claims to everyone that she knows where Brakae the Raif s The Forgotten Man Graphic Edition daughter is Of course Darian is immediately intrigued by these wordsespite Raif tells her #to not care about that but you know #not care about that But you know is Darian she is so stubborn and it s not Raif who will change her mind about this new uest nor anyone else However everything is turned upside The Female of the Species down when many persons try to prevent her about a new realanger and when Tyler is weakened and very moody all the timeIt was so pleasant to see Darian with our little Djinn as she always was alone before We understand that this relation will also be complicated between an overprotective Tyler and a shaede a little too independent for her own good It was really surprising to see the efforts that they both try to Witch Week (Chrestomanci, do to make their relationship work but it s also aifficult situation I confess I asked myself a lot of uestions all along the book about Tyler because I Memory Boot Camp didn t understand what was going on It s heartbreaking to see him so possessive and jealous but he will alsoo everything to help and protect DarianAmanda Bonilla was able in to beautifully recreate the feelings of the characters throughout the book love as sorrow It s London Calling difficult for Darian to

as he is now a real part of her life But when she knows she could help Raif another person she cares about she is ready to put everything in peril We totally understand the choices of each character but it s Croma Venture: The Spiral Wars, Book 5 difficult to assist to all these events without saying anythingMany things happen in this novel and Darian will end up with responsibilities than she
