Sacrificed in Shadow
Sacrificed in Shadow by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Disclaimer: this book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

I’m not one to read about demons. And at times, this book felt like a nightmare. But somehow my mind did not pick up on that. I didn’t have a nightmare.

Demon possession occurs when you first get into the book. Not the demon possessing you, but you looking through the eyes of the demon. It was a bit weird for me because I hadn’t read the books that the demon had come from. But that didn’t stop the story from being understandable. Had I not read anything by S.M. Reine, this still would be an interesting story.

I love Ms. Reine’s characters, in spite of being paranormal, they seem very real. This book will keep you on your toes, biting your nails with all the suspense. And get ready because the last part might keep you up all night. It was really bad because I finished it before I went to sleep. I had to start another book to dull me back to sleep.

If you can handle the paranormal if you love the paranormal, this book is for you. I will be looking at the books I haven’t read yet, so that I will be ready when the next of the series is out. Thank you Sarah for letting me read your great book.

Fallen Angel: An Only in Tokyo Mystery
Fallen Angel: An Only in Tokyo Mystery by Jonelle Patrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do not usually like mysteries. That said, I love this series, Only in Tokyo, by Jonelle Patrick. There are so many layers to the stories, plots and sub-plots. In fact, she writes similarly to the wooden locks found in the story. I love the characters: Yumi and Kenji. Not just them, Ms. Patrick manages to build believable support characters and antagonists.

Murder and blood, though part of every day news, are topics I find hard to look at. In reading, I am usually into books as far away from reality as I can. But the way Jonelle treats that part of the story is gentle. She just presents the characters’ reactions to the deed. I nearly tagged this as a cozy mystery, but it didn’t feel very warm and safe. It felt more like Castle than CSI if that helps the future buyer. It doesn’t have the humor of Castle but the warmth is there.

Romance is a driving force in the series, but it isn’t angsty or squishy like chic-fic. It is more a growing relationship of school friends who find themselves in a sort of working relationship.

The most fun for me is learning about the Japanese culture. Tokyo becomes a character unto itself. Thank you, Jonelle, for letting me read your book!
