This was my first book by this author. I am certain it won't be the last.
Blood in the shadows picked my interest from the beginning of book one til the end of book 2.
Each story has its on unique touch that will certainly have you wanting more.
I enjoyed the first book more than the second. I am a fan of YA but it didn't peek my interest as much as the first one.
It wasn't anything the author did per se.
Both stories were good.
I would love to read more by this author. She certainly has an excellent way of grabbing the reader from page one.
Shadows features Daya Myers, a hunter of supernatural creatures who faces her biggest challenge to date. When Daya begins to question how her past fits into her present reality, will she find the answers she seeks?
The Boy in the Trees features Jemma, a young woman who past catches up with her when she least expects it. Will the mysterious boy in the coffee shop hold the key to everything?
Both novellas in Blood in the Shadows had promise, but the length of each prevented the authors from presenting complete stories. Daya's past, as well as Jemma's, were mainly mysteries, portioned out slightly as a teaser but never fully realized. My favorite part of the whole book was the cover art, as it does a good job of conveying both stories despite their apparent differences. Readers who are looking to get their feet wet in the paranormal world may find the two stories to their liking, but I would be hesitant to recommend either one. I would be curious to read full length novels by both author Kristy Centeno and Stephanie Keyes, as a novella is not always indicative of a writer's abilities.
1) Shadows by Kristy Centeno
Dana Myers is a hunter that goes after Supernaturals. Soon she finds herself being hunted and when she ends up with Mason McNeill she must decide if she can trust him with her life. Will he deliver her soul to evil or help her discover why she is being hunted?
This was a great introduction that left me wanting more. I thought Dana was kick-ass and I am seriously curious on why she is wanted by the underworld. I thought Mason was great and he definitely risks a lot by helping Dana.
Can't wait to read what happens next!
2) The Boy In the Trees by Stephanie Keyes
Jemma has always been drawn to a little boy who she has seen she was young. Yet she doesn't understand why she they are linked. She questions everything but then when Owen Augustine prevents her from making a mistake they are soon in a battle to save her life.
This was another great read and quite different than anything I have read before. I loved the interactions between Jemma and Owen and how he was trying to protect her. Jemma has no idea why she is drawn in and it's interesting why Balen is still after her.
The Boy In The Trees is a delightful YA paranormal action romance with mystery woven flawlessly throughout and plenty of humor along the way there's even a dash of horror here and there. Jemma, Owen, and the mysterious boy in the trees all bring something enthralling to the story be it humanity and normal teenage emotions, chilling powers, or vicious magic. While the story ended solidly, it did wet my appetite for more of Ms Keyes' stories.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
