There are so many wonderful books based in New Orleans and this is no exception. This is a collection of four dynamic and individual stories, with one running theme… Halloween and New Orleans!
These are four individual stories, however they do come with a much loved formula.
Girl is at a cross-roads in life and finds adventure on Halloween, in New Orleans, which naturally involves a trip to Midnight Cauldron to see an authentic, one-of-a-kind, big busted witch!
And of course you have to meet the man of your dreams, who just happens to be so sexy he may in fact be the devil himself. Just joking, he is probably an angel, vampire?
Does is matter?
The main thing is you get to fall in love!!
[Four times with four guys]
You would think it would get old, wouldn’t you?
I mean, how many countless times have we read the same old romance story, and how many countless hours to we spent roaming the french quarter of downtown New Orleans?
But every time I pick up a book that starts with a girl, ends with a boy and at some point has a bar fight on Bourbon street.. I am really.freaking.excited!
I have been there.
I have done that.
and every time I just want to go back.
and do it again. and again. and again.
Its old, but it doesn’t get old!
I can’t get enough of New Orleans and paranormal romance, especially if there is a full moon and Halloween is howling.
The combo is deliciously divine with an edge of dangerous, a tasty treat and lets face it… there really is no better way to spend a day!
So was is in store for you in New Orleans today….?
Sarra Cannon After Midnight
Peachville fans hold onto your pants this one is awesome!! I am hoping its the brilliant start of a new series. It’s all action from the start, an intriguing and captivating story, and you just wanna chuck a tantrum at the end because there isn’t a second book to read IMMEDIATELY.
“From the outside, Becca Goldberg looks like any normal freshman girl at Tulane, but she’s been keeping a terrible secret. She’s really Allison Moore–a young witch from Peachville hiding out from an evil coven of witches known as the Order of Shadows. She thinks she is safe until an unexpected accident occurs. Now, she only has until midnight on Halloween until her identity is discovered.
She must turn to the hottest, most elusive guy on campus for help. Will he help save her? Or will her life come crashing down around her after midnight?”
Juliana Haygert- The Midnight Test
A story for those who love unconventional girls, reclusive guys and of course ghosts and witches. It was a quick and easy read. Lots of potential in the characters and story! I’ll be keeping my eye out for book 2!
Didn’t grip me from the very start, but I was definitely keen for more by the end.
“Being the weakest witch of her generation, nineteen-year-old Hazel is convinced she’s supposed to live a normal, human life–except for the occasional ghost hunting. When Hazel moves to New Orleans, the most powerful witch coven in the world grants her a chance to join them, but only if she passes a dangerous test on Halloween night. Everything is going fine until mysterious Sean steps in Hazel’s way, putting her entire test at risk.
Will she be able to ace the test and keep them both alive at the same time?”
Wowowowowow… okay. Have never read any of Alyssa Rose Ivy’s books but immediately went out a brought one of her books. I loved her style of writing. Her characters. Her ability to compress heaps of story and detail into the page.
This was a fantastic read. Maybe a little slow at the start but Ooooo… by the end… one word. A-Mazing.
Couldn’t ask for more… expect maybe a second book? 😀
“Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:
1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper.
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates.
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero.
Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.”
Jennifer Snyder- Kiss of Awakening
This has a lot of great things in it. The females are fun, the male is cool-calm-and-collected, also kinda sexy, the story has got all the right junk in all the right places.
BUT the writing of it was a little, noooott sooo good, IMO. I found she tried to jam pack sentences with information that wasn’t necessary and there were conversations that happened that were irrelevant.
But great story line and the writing got better towards the end.
I personally didn’t find this book as strong as the others, however that doesn’t mean you wont!
“With one kiss, everything will change…
When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, make a trip to New Orleans hoping for a little Halloween fun and to get away. The mystifying Crescent City has something else in store for her though.
Cryptic messages, a hot tour guide, and a new sense Kenna can’t seem to explain are just the beginning of this eye opening trip. Will Kenna accept what awakens within her or will she crumble under its reality?“
