Book Review: The Dream Jumper’s Promise by Kim Hornsby

Genre : Romance, Suspense, Paranormal
Format : eBook
Rating : 5/5 stars

I started this book without hoping much but wow I was impressed. The story moved in a steady pace, revealing  one mystery after another.

Cast against the tropical islands of Hawaii, it’s a story about Tina the dive shop owner and the men in her lives. Her husband Hank went missing one night presumably dead, leaving Tina struggling to move on and then Jamey the guy who dumped her 10 years ago started walking back into her life. Not to mention also the presence of her husband’s best friend Noble who was Tina’s rock during her survival of her husband’s demise.

If you think you’re in reality, think again! because you’re still in a dream. The book revolves around vivid and lucid dreams, more often than not leaving you wondering whether you’ve woke up from a dream inside a dream or you’ve returned to reality. The author has cleverly written the symbolism of dreams and signs from dreaming. The pieces of flashback in between chapters fits into the mystery puzzle perfectly.

This is a well written book with plenty doses of suspense and plot twists! I am starting to like these genres if all the books are this good! 😀

Book Review: Last Chance Angel by Alex Gutteridge

Genre : Young Adult, Paranormal
Price : RM9.90
Rating : 4/5 stars

When Jess is knocked off her bike in a traffic accident, she finds herself at the gates of heaven before her destined death date.

Given one last chance to say goodbye, she heads back to earth to visit friends and family in invisible form. But many secrets are revealed, and one shocking discovery presents Jess with the biggest choice she’ll ever have to make.

Jess’ story was told in a teenage light yet the theme that permeated the story wasn’t at all that light. At 14 years of age, she had to face her own incoming death, and while she was granted a chance to revisit her closed ones she could only do so without them knowing.

At last… the momentum of this series picked up speed.

Book Review: Torment by Lauren Kate (Fallen Series #2)

Genre : Romance, Young Adult, Paranormal
Format : eBook
Rating : 2/5 stars

If you’ve read the first book, I’m certain that you’ll be as puzzled as me.

Little was known about who Luce really was and the reason for her fatal attraction towards Daniel — the fallen angel — the love of her “lives”. Yep lives. Past lives.

Too many questions were raised about the origins but too little rewarding answers were revealed for the readers who had come this far on book one.

So I started book two, hoping that Ms. Kate would at least leave some breadcrumbs to satisfy the hunger of readers trying to walk out of the woods.

Book Review: Fallen by Lauren Kate (Fallen Series #1)

Genre : Romance, Young Adult, Paranormal
Format : eBook
Rating : 2/5 stars

The reason I chose Fallen series was because I wanted to read some angels material for my Nano writing. From Goodreads this was one of the top books on the list, just behind Mortal Instruments. Since the story of Fallen was closer to what I wanted to read I chose to start this series first.

Here’s a brief telling of what the first book is about, from Goodreads:

What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Get ready to fall . . .
