Fated Review

Written by: Donna Augustine
Published: March 16, 2015

Goodread synopsis:
Settling the cosmic score is what Karma was drafted by the Universe to do. But what happens when all the humans start going to the dark side? She’s got to find the source and the most likely suspect is her long time rival, who outclasses her in both power and resources.Luckily, she’s got a new partner, Fate, but he comes with his own set of complications. The confirmed bachelor has a target of his own.

My thoughts:
Fated is the third installment in the karma series written by Donna Augustine.

Karma and fate were now at war and the stakes were extreme. Now that everyone in the team was up to speed they all watched each other's back. Karma and fates relationship is taking an unexpected turn. Paddy Introduces Paddy Introduces Karma to the others and fia is not a fan. Fia will stop at nothing to get rid of karma, but why?

This series was fantastic, I will admit this book made me angry for a little bit towards the end but then it redeemed itself quickly. I look forward from reading more from this author

Jinxed Review

Written by: Donna Augustine
Published: November 10, 2014

Goodreads synopsis:
Karma, it’s what they call me and the very essence of who I am. When I died young, I was recruited by the agency that keeps the Universe running smoothly. As someone with a human past, most of my coworkers consider me inferior.But not everyone. Something evil has been stalking me for centuries. It’s been biding its time, waiting for the moment when it will strike and it needs me to to do it.
Its methods of recruitment are tearing apart every aspect of my life. I’m slowly losing myself, both mentally and physically. I don’t know who I can count on but I'm finding out how much I'm willing to sacrifice to save the ones I care about.

My Thoughts:
Jinxed is the second installment in the karma series written by Donna Augustine.
I downloaded the first book Karma through Amazon and fell in love with this series.

Karma by some twist is now stuck to be the balancing force of the universe. Fate can't understand why she didn't just leave. Now both will have to learn to deal with each other. When kitty goes into an early retirement, karma becomes suspicious and gets involved with a very bad man. While trying to find and save kitty, karma begins to make a ripple in the universe and lose a part of herself. Fate finally comes to the rescue with a surprise friend in his arsenal. Karma an fate have to work together if they are gonna save kitty and the universe. 

This story is very original, I have never read a story about the forces of the universe such as karma​, fate and lady luck. The characters are quirky and the story is very interesting

Karma Review

By: Donna Augustine
Published: Strong Hold Publishing

Goodreads Synopsis:
People say karma's a...well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad. It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted the position.

Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp, and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf. But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself, and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable. We're hunting the same man—my murderer.

My Thoughts:

Karma is the first installment of the karma series by Donna Augustine.

Camilla is dead, she can't believe she is looking at her own body laying lifeless on the ground. A man tells her she needs to come with him, she will get a chance to catch her killer if she does. Camilla makes what could be the worst decision of her life and goes with the man. Now she has a we job and new coworkers and the most insane boss, but she just wants her life back.

Camilla meets fate at her new job, he's a very attractive guy but he's an arrogant jerk, and he's been assigned to work very closely with Camilla until her thirty days are up. Fate is very demanding and camilla is extremely hard headed so they clash a lot. In Camilla new job she must bring about balance and she's just not sure she's cut out for it. Can entre make it through her 30 days and get back to a life?

This book was a little slow to start for me. It was well written and the characters developed nicely. I realized that the slow start was necessary to three story, as it progressed the story was no longer slow. Camilla is kind of whiny art first and I wasn't sure I was going too like her, but then she gets herself together and becomes very likeable. Fate is your bad boy strong silent type and you're instantly attracted to him butt when he does talk you kings of want to hit him in the mouth. This book left you wanting more of the story.

Primed Son Review

Primed Son
written by: Eden Ashley
Published:November 26, 2015

Goodreads synopsis:

Kali’s maturity into the warrior she once was could not have come at a better time. Still haunted by his gruesome punishment in Golden Mountain, Rhane is slowly coming undone as the pressure mounts to save this world and preserve the lives of those closest to him. But given a miraculous chance to fix mistakes from the past, Rhane and Kali soon realize that the undertaking may be beyond the reach of even their combined powers.

The battle lines have been drawn as evil marches toward their doorstep. But who fights for which side has never been more unclear. And time is running out to separate friend from foe.

Torn between saving their family and saving the world, Rhane and Kali are faced with impossible choices…and devastating consequences. Because sometimes, a little evil is necessary to protect what is loved most…and sometimes, even that may not be enough.

My thoughts:

This is the final book in the Dark series by Eden Ashley. Rhane is still adjusting after his torment at Golden mountain. Kali's warrior skills have improved immensely and her control over her power has also. They will both need each other at top notch for the enemy they are about to face. Will they be able to do what is necessary to save their family or will that love destroy them?

This book was an amazing finale to a wonderful series. I was overjoyed with Bailen's love for his brother and his parents. Rhaven was a wonderful addition to the story.

Do not read this book unless you have read the rest of the series!

Blood Chained Review

written by: Eden Ashley
published: November 18, 2014

Goodreads synopsis:
Sometimes great evil is necessary to keep what you love most.

After centuries on the run, Rhane can avoid justice no longer. Primes have called him home and now he must finally answer for the sins of his past. But the situation in Rhane’s homeland is far worse than anyone could have imagined, and the judgment Rhane faces is a brutal one. Even relying on the strength of the immortal Banewolf, the man he has become may not survive.

Kali and the other kin work tirelessly to secure Rhane’s freedom, but many obstacles stand in their way. Wesley offers a solution that hinges upon resuming a dangerous search for the Siren’s Heart. Trusting him, she and the kin set out once again to find the elusive artifact, believing Rhane and Warren’s freedom can be bartered in exchange for the statue. But other creatures are searching for the Heart. And with greater resources and a head start, their enemies may reach it first.

My thoughts:

This is the third installment of the Dark Siren series by Eden Ashley. Rhane has decided to go home and let the Primes doll out their punishment. He tells Kali he will be back and doesn't come back when he's supposed to. Kali becomes very melancholy during rhane's absence. When rhane gets back home he see that the situation is much worse than he feared and is unsure if there is anyone he can trust. As a last resort Kali goes to Wesley for help in getting Rhane back from the primes. Kali and the other kin set off on a dangerous journey to secure the siren's heart in hopes of securing rhane and war's release.

I love this series, with each book I fall more in love with the charcters and the story. I still love orrin, he is very dedicated to those he loves and his and kali's relationship is that of brother and sisiter or best friends and gets really strong in this book.

Again do not read this book unless you have read the first two in the series as you would be very confused.

Banewolf Review

written by: Eden Ashley
Published: November 19, 2013

Goodreads synopsis:

New enemies are made.

New allies must be forged.

Kali is beginning to regain her memories. In doing so, she discovers old secrets and betrayals that threaten to unravel her present and shake the foundation for Rhane’s belief in her innocence. While her maturing abilities present unique challenges, a bigger problem arises when Kali learns her ex-boyfriend has made a misguided deal with the enemy in order to win her back—a decision that may ultimately cost him his humanity.

Keeping Kali safe has become a full time job for Rhane. And struggling to gain control of the immortal Banewolf isn’t making that task any easier. The power to eliminate the growing threat against Kali lies at Rhane’s fingertips, but using it means risking his friends to the insatiable blood lust of a monster. So Rhane is forced to forge a shaky alliance with creatures he has sworn to destroy. Despite these new allies, the danger pressing on their borders intensifies, culminating in a heartbreaking and shocking finale.

The strength of the bond between young and ancient lovers will be tested…and if Kali and Rhane are to survive, they must find a way to be unbreakable.

My thoughts:

This is the second book in the Dark siren series by Eden Ashley. Kali now stays with Rhane, as it makes it much easier for him to protect her.  Rhane decides to make allies out of the kindred so that Kali is properly protected, even though as banewolf he was sworn to destroy their kind. Two kindred join the ranks of Rhane soldiers at the behest of Ian the leader of the kindred pack. Callhan, Kali's ex has forged a deal with one of Kali and Rhanes enemies in an attempt to win her back.

I love this book just as much as the first, the story develops well and has very loveable characters. I love how all the charcaters seem to grow throughout the series and none of them just stay stagnant in their development.

I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you have not read Dark siren by Eden Ashley because without the information in the first book you would be lost.
