Unbound (The Guardian Legacies #1)

The world of ghosts and spirits is nothing new to eighteen year old Anora Benson; she’s spent her whole life trying to ignore them, trying to be normal. But when the Pricolici, a group of ancient bounty hunters, are sent after her, Anora realizes she is more than just a medium.

As a witch she has power, power she doesn’t know how to use, power that makes her vulnerable to the demons that desire her gifts. Anora is alone and scared, forced to face the darkness on her own. Then she meets Ethan, a mysterious boy who shows up in her life right along with the magic, and he seems to know quite a bit about her and her legacy Coven. Will she risk everything by trusting him or risk fighting alone?

Waiting on Wednesday (#30)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
which spotlights upcoming books we can't wait to read.

My WoW for this week is:

Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland

Goodreads Summary:
The Goddess Test meets Dexter in an edgy, compelling debut about one teen’s quest for revenge… no matter how far it takes her.

Cory Graff is not alone in her head. Bound to a deal of desperation made when she was a child, Cory’s mind houses the Furies—the hawk and the serpent—lingering always, waiting for her to satisfy their bloodlust. After escaping the asylum where she was trapped for years, Cory knows how to keep the Furies quiet. By day, she lives a normal life, but by night, she tracks down targets the Furies send her way. And she brings down Justice upon them.

Cory’s perfected her system of survival, but when she meets a mysterious boy named Niko at her new school, she can’t figure out how she feels about him. For the first time, the Furies are quiet in her head around a guy. But does this mean that Cory’s finally found someone who she can trust, or are there greater factors at work? As Cory’s mind becomes a battlefield, with the Furies fighting for control, Cory will have to put everything on the line to hold on to what she’s worked so hard to build.

My thoughts:
I love anything to do with mythology! I have always been fascinated by all the different creatures and stories. So the minute I read the blurb for this book I knew I had to have it.  It sounds so cool! 

Expected Release Date: April 2nd 2013

REVIEW - Contingency by Peggy Martinez

Title: Contingency 
Author: Peggy Martinez
Series: Sage Hannigan Time Warper #1
Published: June 27th 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance, Steampunk, Time Travel
Links: Goodreads / Amazon
Source: eBook from Author

Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina.
How hard can it be?
All she has to do is:
1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.
Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper and she never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.


Contingency is the story of 18 year old Sage who is unceremoniously yanked back in time 100 years to the age of horse drawn carriages, and corsets Withing minutes of arriving she is attacked by a vampire, rescued and taken in my a secret society where she soon learns that vampires aren't the only things she has to worry about. She learns that she is a Warper, someone who can freeze time and time-travel and that she was sent to 1904 to help to put an end to a string of killings that could change the course of history as we know it. 

Sage was a great character. She was witty and smart and grew a great deal as the book progressed. She became a very tough young woman with a strong fighting spirit. She learned to adapt to this new world and how to control her new gifts. 

We are introduced to a whole host of characters. We have the people that Sage comes to trust and rely on: Elaine, Travis, Dr. Aldwin Blake. I loved Dr. Blake, I thought he was a great love interest. He was not your usual love interest. He is blind in one eye and has a horrible scar down one side of his face but Peggy still makes him in to a swoon worthy guy. Although I feel there is more to him than what we see. There is also a whole host a paranormal creatures too which make the story so much more interesting. There wasn't just vampires but shifters, merfolk and more. 

The story was very faced paced. From the very beginning the story shoots off and doesn't slow down until you have turned the last page. I thought that maybe the start was a bit rushed, but other than that the story was really enjoyable and will keep you on the edge of your seat. There was however the dreaded love triangle. You probably all know by now that I detest love triangles. BUT...I have a feeling this one could be intersting. We only got a little taste of a love triangle brewing. I haven't yet decided who I will be rooting for yet. It will be intersting to see who takes my vote. One thing to Peggy as well. What the hell is up with that ending?!?! You can't leave it like that!! :( That was so not cool! You better bring out book 2 soon or me and you will be having words! :P

Overall this book was a great read. Full of love, hate, mystery, betrayal, action and romance this book will have you laughing out load and bawling like a baby. A must for fantasy and paranormal lovers.
