Synopsis of Frenzy (Book One):

After the world was ravaged by a viral apocalypse, Blackwater is one of the only colonies that remains. The survivors came together to create this safe haven. Nestled between a fierce river and a city’s flood wall, the well-being of its residents hangs on a long-established treaty with the night-walkers. Sounds simple enough, but lately, the people of Blackwater have been dying, and the humans believe the night-walkers are to blame.

Porschia Grant starves for more than her parents’ affection. Forced to enter the rotation, she will be given extra food rations in exchange for becoming a vampire’s breakfast and dinner for a week. The rotation has an extra responsibility as well: leave the colony and enter the dangerous forest to hunt for food. A night-walker will protect the hunters from the infected that roam the woods. But with the treaty hanging in the balance and tension between the humans and vampires rising, anything could happen in the darkness.

What would you do if your only chance at survival might kill you?

My Review:

Let me start by saying, I’m only up to book three in the series (there’s five) and I’m obsessed! You know that feeling you get when you don’t want to go to bed because you have to know what happens– well this series will give you that feeling. 

It’s a refreshingly new take on Vampires and Zombies. To call it that is just degrading because what Casey does is weave this interesting plot that keeps you craving answers. In the second book we get all different point of views and it really comes full circle. I’m halfway though the third book and PLOT TWIST!! Just when I thought I had it all figured out! Dive into this book today, you won’t regret it.

The Infernal Devices By Cassandra Clare

Infernal Devices

 

The Infernal Devices Series 

Synopsis from Clockwork Angel:

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa’s power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm’s length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.


 

My Review: 

This Series totally gutted me. I had an idea of what would happen because I had read the Mortal Instruments before I started this series– but I had no idea it would hit me so hard.

The story revolves around the mystery of Tessa and her heritage and why does everyone want her special gifts? But it’s the love triangle that brought on the tears. Is it possible to be in love with two people at once? What do you in that case? The epitome of the best (& most emotional) love triangle I would’ve ever hoped to have read/imagined.

The way Cassandra ended this series– perfection. I laughed, I cried and in the end I sobbed like a baby. The quotes in this book are too awesome for words. I can’t even express in words what this series did to me, it’s something you have to experience for yourself. Everything I read from Cassandra is just awesome, at this point I think I would read her grocery lists. 

♥♥♥♥♥- I have no words other than it’s a Must Read!

The Mortal Instruments Series By Cassandra Clare

Mortal Instruments

 

The Mortal Instruments

Synopsis from City of Bones: 

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.


 

My Review:

Okay, I have to admit I’m slightly obsessed with this series. You are fully emerged and invested in this new shadowhunter lifestyle. The whole love triangle thing definitely was what kept me going through the first three books, I had to prove that this wasn’t true. I love the sarcastic humor and banter between all the characters. It was everything one is looking for in a book —  hilarious dialogue, hint of mystery, some romance, and action packed.

The last three books is when the story really evolved. I love the way it just tied everything up in the end yet left it open for more to develop– it was just perfection.

I found it beautifully written, but I have to say sometimes the description got too much for me. I found myself skipping paragraphs of description to get to the dialogue. But the way that Cassandra hooks us in will make me read all of her other books. I wish I could un-read them so that I could read them all over again!

♥♥♥♥♥- 5 Amazing stars! Must Read Series!  

 

Inescapable Series By, Amy Bartol

Inescapable

Synopsis for Inescapable:

My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I’d been hoping that once I’d arrived on Crestwood’s campus, the nightmare that I’ve been having would go away. It hasn’t.
I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I’m grounded…sane. I look for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he’s near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you’re thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would be…if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I’m the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But get this, for some reason every time I turn around he’s there, barging into my life.
What is the secret that he’s keeping from me? I’m hoping that it’s anything but what I suspect: that he’s not exactly normal…and neither am I. So, maybe Crestwood won’t be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I’ve been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.


My Review:

Moving away from the only parent you’ve ever known to move away to college is drastic enough, but what Evie doesn’t count on is the life changing way it’ll effect her. Words can not express how much I love this series. The way Amy puts a twist on the classic love triangle made even me doubting which one I want her to end up with. But it doesn’t just stop at that, it seems like everyone she encounters wants a piece of her! (Literally) The way Evie takes it all in stride with her snarky attitude really makes you fall in love with her. This series is beautifully written and I love it, I can’t wait for the next book due out next year!!

Hush Hush Series By, Becca Fitzpatrick

Hush hush

Hush Hush Synopsis:

Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life


 

My Review:

LOVED this series! I can’t believe it say on my shelf for a year before I actually opened the pages. This series is a little near and dear to my heart because it inspired a dream that inspired my own book. You follow Nora as she meets this guy in class and then strange things start to happen to her, is she going crazy? is it all in her head? I loved the mystery of it all. Nora doesn’t know who she can trust, can her best friend understand? is Patch behind all this? Is her Father who she thinks? I don’t want to give too much away, (I hate reviews that dive too deep into the story) Just read Hush Hush– you’ll be diving for the next one in no time.
