February 11, 2015 5 Comments Regina

  Check out my reviews of Gravity (The Taking #1) and Hover (The Taking #2). Collide is a show-stopping, blood-pumping, heart-pounding finish to The Taking series, and hard-core Sci-Fi fans will be just as blown away by this finale as romance fans will be. Ari is a bad-ass of EPIC PROPORTIONS in Collide and Melissa West didn’t hold back with Ari’s character. Ari fully transforms into a fearless leader in this last book of the […]

While he’s not actually referred to as an Alien, He does mention being from another world and to get to said world they have to travel through a worm hole. […]

Stars in September: The Fallen Star series by Jessica Sorenson

I discovered this series after finishing Obsidian, by Jennifer Armentrout. I was desperate to chase the first book in the Lux series with something that had romance, tension, and a Sci-Fi edge to it. Not surprisingly, Amazon came to the rescue. ” Your cart is empty, ” Amazon says. “Give it purpose,” Amazon says. So, of course, unable to ignore these desperate pleas to give my cart meaning any longer, I looked at the recommendations […]

Hey, fellow Roswell-Read-A-Long peeps! Please enjoy another awesome GUEST REVIEW of The Vanished by Meredith Maresco of Pandorasbooks.org: Much like Vanished, The Rebel surprised me. It was better than I expected, though some parts left much to be desired. I still can’ t get over the physical appearances of the characters in the books versus the show. Every time Max is described with blonde hair and blue eyes, I just want to cringe. Also, my mind […]

Hey, fellow Roswell-Read-A-Long peeps! Please enjoy this awesome GUEST REVIEW of The Vanished by Meredith Maresco of Pandorasbooks.org: As a fan of the Roswell television series, I was a little reluctant to read the books, especially when I found out the books actually preceded the television show. I had fallen in love the with actors who played the characters, and so many things get changed in the process of creating a show or movie based […]

In The Stowaway (Roswell High #6), despite the fact that A LOT of serious life-and-death stuff is going on, I can’t get over how frustrated I am with Michael and Isabel from book #5. They still prove to be frustrating in book #6!  At the end of book #5, our Roswell group has narrowly escaped with their lives after infiltrating the Project Clean Slate underground facilities to free Michael. Little did they know, they would […]

August 14, 2013 0 Comments Regina

The Intruder is probably my LEAST FAVORITE of all the Roswell High books. My disdain for this book doesn’t lie with the writing, it lies with Michael’s story line. In book five, we pick up right where we leave off in book four. Max has just been saved with the crystals from their ship, and connected with the collective consciousness of his planet. Unfortunately, we lose Ray Iburg at the end of book four, and […]

“Our race has a….collective consciousness, ” Ray explained. “It’s like a psychic Internet. All the knowledge, all the life experience, all the emotions of all of our people are there in the consciousness. When a young person reaches maturity, he or she is able to make the connection to the consciousness for the first time. This rite of passage is called the akino.” The Watcher is the most intense book yet in the Roswell High […]

This third book in the Roswell High series proves again that Melinda’s writing and story telling are just as good, if not better, than in the first book. Things start getting a little more crazy, even by Roswell standards in The Seeker, and we learn a lot about our favorite alien-hybrids. In this book, Isabel is still struggling to get over Nikolas’s untimely death in The Wild One, and Alex  provides the shoulder she needs […]

I was sucked in by the Gravitational pull of this awesome book cover. Humans are no longer alone in the universe. Aliens, known as the Ancients, helped Earth recover from near extinction decades ago, and the Ancients only needed one thing in return: To use humans as their own personal batteries.  Humans are each assigned their own Ancient, and are visited every night by these beings. The Ancients absorb vital nutrients without compromising their human’s […]
