Angel's Wolf by Nalini Singh — Noel, a vampire, is sent to help an angel whom someone is trying to kill. I like everything Nalini Singh has written. This story hasn't changed that.

Alphas: Origins by Ilona Andrews — No idea how to rate this. The blurb is not exactly helpful. You might expect a woman kidnapped by some noble creature (or at least one who doesn't ooze malice the first few encounters), but I couldn't wrap my mind around the ideas of a real ugly kidnapping, blackmail (she has to feed the guy with her blood if she doesn't want her six-year-old daughter to die) or the actual feeding in something which is supposed to be a romantic story. Since I don't know anything about this world, maybe that is the reason why I couldn't like it. Maybe it's one of those which you have to be familiar with the world to like it. Since I love the way Ilona Andrews writes, I would go with that.

Nocturne by Sharon Shinn — I liked this story. A woman is on the run from her past and she is hiding as a cook at a school for abandoned street children. The blurb says the mansion nearby is where she meets the blind, tormented angel who lives there, and whose secrets could now destroy them both. I have no idea what secrets. She was just curious about all the mystery surrounding the old mansion and she sneaked in and found a blind angel. It's not a bad story, but nothing really exciting happens as in the other three.

Ascension by Meljean Brook — Sneaky Meljean Brook. I love her anthology stories. They are usually awesome. This one is about two Guardians separated by a lack of communication a hundred and forty years ago. Marc is trying to find the source of unrest in a small town where he lives and Radha, worried about him even though she thinks he rejected her, comes to help him. ( )

I only read Ilona Andres Alphas: Origins novella. Very good read! I don't know if they are building a new series, but its interesting! ( )

Angel's Wolf- 3.5 stars- I love the series but did not care for these characters. There was a scene with a cat being killed, broke my heart.
Alpha's origin-5 stars, fantasy, action, romance and mystery in the perfect amount- I want more
Nocturne- 3 stars, just not my style of reading, a religious feel
Ascension- ? Did not finish ( )

This review is only for Angel's Wolf. I haven't read the other authors yet and don't want to be spoiled!

Loved Nimra and Noel. A very sweet romance. Both are deliciously tortured souls who find peace and love with each other. Made me want to get on a plane to LA right away. I enjoyed the different characters of Nimra's court. I wonder if Midnight will make an appearance in later books? It sounds like a scary potion.

Curious about the other stories in the anthology. My TBR list just got a lot longer! ( )
