(There never was a child but...) He believes that she had an abortion but she will never tell him the truth.
To stop Death from claiming her he goes to the Oracle who gave her the prophecy but learns that Death has already taken her to his kingdom. Now he knows that he will do anything to get her back, even make a deal with Death himself. It is now a race against time to get to the portal before their time is up.
They make it but the surprises don't end there when Summit's old wife shows up. She was supposed to be dead but Death brought her back to cause havoc on their lives. When she takes on the appearance of Amara she doesn't realize that her life would end before she seduced him. After her death (Summit thinks it's Amara) he goes crazy and almost destroys the whole city before Amara's friends and foster brother step in.
Now she is trying to make him remember who she is to him while he wants nothing more than to kill her. When she is about to be raped he steps in to save her from that fate.

Last Kiss Goodnight Review

Title: Last Kiss Goodnight

Author: Gena Showalter

Book: (An Otherworld Assassin Novel, #1)

Pages: 436

Rating: 5/5

So this wasn't one of the free books I got on my Kindle but it was so worth it! I mean this book was so amazing I couldn't put it down...well I had to when I went to work. I must admit I wasn't too happy about putting it down though.
Solo is an otherworlder. He works with men like himself to hunt down and kill bad men who would destroy others. So though he might not consider himself a good man he doesn't consider himself a bad man either. Despite the fact that when he is angry he turns into a monster (literally). When he and his friends are (for lack of a better word) ambushed he is sold to a zoo. Not just any zoo. A zoo filled with otherworlders of different species. There he is drugged and stuck in a cage. His only hope is the girl who feeds and takes care of them. He just needs to figure out how to get her to let him go.
Vika has lived with her father (the man who runs the circus/zoo) and has lived with his abuse since her mother fled with another man. Now she does the only thing she can for the otherworlders, which is too feed and clean them. What else can she do when she can't find the keys to the cuffs which keep the prisoners drugged up? But when she sees Solo she knows he is different and longs to know more about him. If only she could hear what he was saying when she wasn't looking. After all her father had taken away her hearing when she helped the otherworlders escape the first time. Now she has to think through, has to plan, has to make sure everything goes as planned.
Solo falls hard for her and they plan to run away together...only to get caught. Then another man decides he's had enough and demands that Vika marry him. She declines and is almost killed by his hands. Then she is locked up with Solo as they travel between worlds. Then when they do manage to escape he shows her what it is to be loved for the first time in years. But all too soon their romance ends when Vika's father finds them and drags them back to the circus where he is determined for Solo to watch his daughter suffer and she him.
What will happen to Vika? Will Solo be able to remove the cuffs a second time? Will the other otherworlders manage to escape? Does the evil of the circus burn to the ground?
Man I loved this book and almost cried at the end but held onto my hope for a happy ending. I wasn't disappointed and I must say that this is one of my favorite books now!

Ignite Me Review

Title: Ignite Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Book: (Shatter Me, #3)

Pages: 408

Rating: 5/5

So in preparation for this book I reread Shatter Me and Unravel Me only to finally get the book and stop reading Unravel Me before I could finish. It was hard to read them since I had the ACT coming up and I had to study for it. Anyway I got the book and ohmysweetgoodness I loved it! I was expecting her to die, even for Warner or Adam to die. Nope! So happy that I was proven wrong! I almost had a panic attack when I thought about this book...
Juliette is supposed to be dead, after all Anderson shot her in the last book, but Warner saved her and took her back to the compound. Omega Point is gone and everyone she knew is believed to be dead but she needs to know for sure. Warner takes her to the site and she finds Kenji there searching for others, just like her. Warner allows her to go with him and so Kenji takes her to their safe house. Adam's home.
Turns out Adam, James (Adam's brother), Kenji, Castle, and a few others made it out alive. Now Adam is happy she is alive but that love turns to hate when he finds out that she has been staying with Warner. That she now trusts everything Warner tells her. Why shouldn't she? He saved her...and he loves her more than Adam ever could, because he understands her. Because he believes in her.
Now it is up to her to gather them all together and begin a new war. One with her in charge. One that she has to win. So now Warner is letting all of them stay safely hidden away in a private room on base where no one can find them. He lets them do whatever they want but no one but Kenji and Juliette know why. Everyone else is blind to the way Waren and Juliette look at each other. Even Juliette isn't sure about her feelings towards Warner. Does she truly love him? It's a fact that she doesn't love Adam. After all he is a selfish jerk who doesn't give a damn that she isn't the same as she used to be. He wants her to be quiet and pathetic. Warner wants her to be herself.
After she rallies all of the troops to her side it is now up to her and Kenji to kill Anderson (who is on a ship) and save the twins, while everyone else is fighting his men. Before any of that happens, though, she professes her love for Warner. YAHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! YAY! (I swear I laughed, jumped, and shouted for joy when that happened! XD)
Will she be able to face Anderson's secret weapon? Will they make it off the ship in one piece? Will the base even still be there when they get back? Will Warner be there waiting for her?
Agh I love the end! I was so happy that I got to finish the series since my friend will not be reading it. After all she is a team Adam fan. :D Me? I've always loved Warner!

Blood Red Road Review

Title: Blood Red Road

Author: Moira Young

Book: (Dust Lands, #1)

Pages: 459

Rating: 5/5

So since I've been spending most of my time reading on my Kindle I never thought I'd be able to pick up a book. I am sure glad I did because this book is intense and weird. I like it though it doesn't have "quotation marks" around what is being said, which I find super annoying. In most cases I won't write in a book, but I made an exception so I could put the quotes around sentences.
Saba, Lugh, Emmie and their father all live together in Silverlake where the food comes few and far between while the water level drops. There is no one for miles and miles but one day four men come, take Lugh, and kill Pa, leaving Saba to take care of the sister she loathes. She heads out to find Lugh, planning to leave Emmie behind with a neighbor, but Emmie just comes after her.
They are kidnapped by some wicked people who force Saba to cage fight in Hopetown. The worst place to be. There she becomes known as the Angel of Death, for she never loses a match. That is, not until someone comes and forms a plan. Now she has to lose three matches and run the gauntlet where she will hopefully be able to escape into the crowd.
The King catches onto the plot and plans to ruin everything but Saba manages to escape and helps the other prisoners escape too. Including Jack, who she risks her life to save though she doesn't know why. Now she is with the female group the Free Hawks and about to journey with Emmie and Jack to Freedom Fields where they are keeping Lugh.
They make it there after encountering the Wurms and safely make it inside the compound. There they realize that the Kind is still alive. How? Saba saw him die! XD After getting Lugh safely out of there they go to meet up with Tommo and Emmie but discover Emmie has been taken. Now they set up a defense and wait for the King and his men to come for them.
Will they make their last stand? Will the Free Hawks come to the rescue? Who wins in the end?
I loved the book and one of the characters (DeMalo) even though I think he's in all of five pages throughout the book. So sad! Agh I hate that I am once again in love with a fictional character!
