Three stories that show the light of dark of each heroines struggles.


Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light

I don't know what I am, but I'm not human...and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there's a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It's the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all...

Mature YA Paranormal Romance (due to some violence)


WarWolf: Half breed

Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn't easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits.

New Adult Paranormal Sweet Romance


Moved

"Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong..."
It's the secret Gillian's father has tried to keep from her and the reason he's so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped.
Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she's willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he's willing to endure to keep her close.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little tidbits! May 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this collection of novellas.

The 1st (Shadows and Light): Definitely the darkest of the three. This is where the collection gets its name. Probably my least favorite. It was good, but a little darker than I prefer. It did have some delicious tension between dark and light. And I enjoyed the romance.

The 2nd (Warwolf): My favorite! This one was awesome!! It had the balance of humor, romance, and story that I most love from Melissa's books. The male lead was delicious! I have to say I love a man that owns what he feels and goes all in. My only complaint is that I felt Ema's emotional journey was too abrupt. One minute she's holding it all back, and the next it's all good. Even with that though, I LOVED IT!!!

The 3rd (Moved): Another great one! Again, that perfect mix of humor, romance, and story. My only disappointment was that it ended so soon! I really wanted more.

I greatly enjoyed this collection of novellas! I only wish I could have more of their stories!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mix of Short Stories! May 29, 2014
By Angela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is a great mix of very different captivating short stories. My favorite short story of the three was "Moved". It was the most like Melissa Haag's "Judgement of the Six Series" which I love. It has a strong feisty female character who is witty and creates humorous situations with the male lead. "Warwolf" also had humor and a mix of shifter and magic paranormal elements and I enjoyed it as well. "Shadows and Light" was the darker and more intense story which had me wondering with each page how the story would be resolved. If you sometimes want a good quick read, I recommend these great paranormal short stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melissa Haag owns the paranormal genre! May 23, 2014
By Desiree
Format:Kindle Edition
I actually really enjoy novellas and love Melissa Haag so this was a no brainer for me. I was especially intrigued when I saw that she was mixing it up with dark and funny stories. I do know that if I want my paranormal fix, Melissa is definitely the person I go to. Her "Judgment of the Six" series is one of my favorite paranormal series out there.

This series was fun and serious at the same time. I found myself eagerly waiting to find out what was going to happen next. Each character was developed beautifully and it was cool to get to know them even if for a short story.

With paranormal it is always an interesting find to me. You've got your stereotypical spins on vampires, werewolves, etc. and then there are these authors that can create an entirely different storyline for a supernatural creature we've been reading about for years. That is what Melissa does. She creates these worlds and scenarios that just absolutely entertain.

I know I didn't go much into the actual stories themselves because, to be honest, they are novellas and I will end up giving it away. The synopsis above is dead on and better than anything I could have done. The only thing I can add is for those of us who like a little romance with our paranormal, this delivered (but its NOT steamy so don't expect that!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Collection of Short Stories May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read everything that Melissa has written and I am a fan for life. ;) This is a great set of stories, my favorite being Moved. If you love Moved as much as I did, consider checking out her Judgement of the Six series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Melissa's books May 18, 2014
By Leahrae
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read every thing Melissa has published and enjoyed everyone of them. They all have a great story, suspense and the world building is great. A lot of paranormal books are about alpha males, almost to cave man style, dragging the female of by her hair pounding their chest saying MINE. And a lot of sex with a little story. I find Melissa's style of writing different and refreshing. I stalk Melissa's on her website and Facebook and can't wait to read more of her work.

4.0 out of 5 stars First story is mind blowing May 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first story is one of the best novella's I have ever read. It starts out of the gate like a thoroughbred in the Kentucky Derby. BAM, she had me from the first page and never lost me. You don't know what is happening and you just keep reading as it unfolds. The ending does not disappoint. It is dramatic and what happens Is unexpected. I really hope that this is the seed for a new series. The world is new and there is so much potential here. The characters are fantastic and well defined for a novella. This is some fantastic writing and story telling in the first novella. The next two stories were downhill for me. Not the same kind of stories at all and did not grab me like the first one. Melissa Haag really is a great writer in the making.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 slices of a well formed cake April 16, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Melissa Haag, author of the Judgement of the Six Series, has done it again! Taking the supernatural world to a new level this book depicts three separate short stories that follow the lives of three different yet similarly independent female main characters into worlds that are both interesting and diverse.

The first book; Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light started the book off with a bang. The first few chapters were gripping as the reader tries to discover what it is about the main character that makes her so unique and special. As the story progresses and her secrets are revealed the story ends on a note that brings hope to the fictional world that they live in; leaving you content and ready for the next one.

The second story; War Wolf: Half-Breed puts the reader back into a world that is a bit more relate-able to the Judgement Series yet still uniquely new. The introduction of two new supernatural species to the world of werewolf gives the reader a chance to peak into the eyes of someone who is living on the edge of two different worlds, each one full of their own unique challenges. The choices the main character has to make are indeed tough but like any of Melissa's female characters she manages to come out on top.

The third and last story; Moved was by far my favorite of the three. Though it contained werewolves they were not like the other werewolf stories we have come to expect from Melissa. The change was a nice surprise and the overall humor of this short story had me laughing and smiling the whole way through. The overall lightheartedness with a touch of danger is what really made this story the icing on the delicious cake that is Shadows and Light.
