Descended by Blood Review

Author: Angeline Kace

Release date: August 26th 2011

Published by: Accendo Press

Edition: Ebook (263 pages)

How I got this: Free for special deal on amazon

Goodreads page

Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. In a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.

My thoughts:
When I first got this book I was really excited to read it, it was one of the first books I picked up right away in a long time. This book was such a good read I didn't ever want to put it down. The chapters are fairly short and so is the book only 263 pages long. Making it and easy intimidating read for almost everyone. This book went by really fast for me because of the story line. It grabbed me right away and I loved it all the way through. The main character Brooke was very easy for me to understand her thinking process. She was a character I could get along with and not get annoyed easily by.Everything what brooke was going through made  since to me. For what she was trying to think of herself but also getting stronger was very inspiring. The romance in this book diffidently helped me keep reading this book. It made you want to find out what see was going to do next. I loved the way the action was described with  a lot of detail in it.Made it easier for you to picture it all so easily and made the reading just zoom by. Angeline Kace was very original with all the different terms she used through out the book. She also created another language through out the book which for anyone would be hard to do. It was all very believable and very well organized.The book does end with kind of a cliffhanger which I do enjoy it. I just loved it soo much mostly all I can say for this book is I want more now!

Some World of Warcraft Beta News!

They already started to invite people for the beta and it is worth it if you have already had the annual pass. I have got to see first hand on some of the beta stuff already and I think they are still making it easier. They made so that when you level up your new spells are automatically trained.So you don't have to run back an forth. Which I actually do enjoy doing so I am kinda sad. The pandas are super cute but you don't really get to change their faces too much. Just like the patterns on their faces. Anyways I don't wanna give to much away but it is really different. Hopefully the changes won't hurt their customers. Oh and the Pandas are not rip offs of Kung fu Panda, they originally had it in the world of warcraft before the first world of warcraft. So that is my two scents on this whole thing I'll post more on it when your able to.

Wow # 3

This is of course originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the spine. For this week's pick I chose Skeleton Women by Mimgmei Yip.  This book doesn't come out till May 25th 2012. I am actually really excited for this book it. I think I will really enjoy it anyways here's the synopsis for it.

Once upon a time in China, the most beautiful and gifted women were known as “skeleton women”—the ultimate femme fatales who could bring a man to his knees, or to his doom… 
When Camilla, a young orphan girl in Shanghai, is adopted and brought to live in luxury, it seems like a stroke of luck. But as Camilla grows to womanhood, she realizes that her “rescue” was part of gang leader Big Brother Wang’s scheme. Camilla is trained in singing, dancing, knife-throwing and contortion—all to attract the attention of Wang’s enemy, the ruthless Master Lung. 

Forced to become Master Lung’s mistress, Camilla meets two other intriguing women. Shadow is a magician and rival for Master Lung’s affections, while Rainbow Chang dresses like a man and wields power through her incendiary gossip column. Both pose risks to Camilla’s safety and status. But an even greater danger comes in the form of Master Lung’s eldest son, Jinying, who despises his father’s violent lifestyle—but loves Camilla. Only by plotting to eliminate Lung can she make her escape, but at what cost?

What do you think? Do you think it would be a book you'd like to read?

They are gonna be as much as they always are when new controllers first come out. Its going to be $54.99. I think that's a lot for accessories its almost as much as a brand new game. But they are beautiful and I kinda think they are worth it if you want bad ass wireless controllers.

Ninja Gaiden 3 Review!

Designer: Team Ninja, Tecmo

Publisher: Tecmo koei

Release Date: March 20th, 2012

Rated: M for Mature

How I got it: I bought it

Wasn't expecting this from team ninja....Its Amazing! First off let me say that team ninja has always had good graphics if not great graphics. This game is no different it looks amazing and there is tons of blood to go along with it. Who doesn't love blood? This Ninja Gaiden does have more of a story line then the rest and its actually interesting to keep you going. I did enjoy this story line, I thought it was like watching a movie. The fighting style is more easier to play then the other Ninja Gaiden's at least on the mode I played on which was 
Ninja: Normal. It does remind me of God of War's fighting style more then previous Ninja Gaidens but that is also why I like it. I loved all the God of Wars so maybe that is why I am a fan of this game so much. Anyways you move through enemies so fast its ridiculous and fun. No matter how many enemies they send on you, the fighting style makes it so its not the same thing over and over again. I almost beat the game in one day because of the fact that it was so much fun. A lot of people say there is only one sword through out the game.  That isn't true as you go through the story mode you do pick up different types of swords. Yes it may seem like there is only the same sword but really its not if you'd pay attention. You do only get one bow and I think its awesome. The game is more realistic were you don't heal yourself or collect orbs. I think the only bad thing is you can't upgrade your armor or weapons. It is fun to level your stuff up but the game play is fun on its own too. This game is diffidently worth a buy no matter what Ign has to say about it. If you are a Ninja Gaiden fan then you wont be disappointed.

Beastly by Alex Flinn Review and Movie comparison!

Author: Alex Flinn

Release Date: October 7th, 2012

Edition: Hardcover (304 pages)

Published by: Harper teen

How I got this: I bought it

Goodreads Link

Synopsis:I am a beast. A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog, but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster. 

You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell. 

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and a perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly beastly.

My thoughts:

I did enjoy this book, I thought it was neat that there was I.M. chatting in between the chapters. The chapters in this book were only 2 to 4 pages long. Which did make the reading of this book go by super fast. I thought that it was a clever retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Of course at first in the book I didn't like the Kyle but that is what the author wanted was for you to think he was snobby which he was.I did enjoy Kendra's part through out the book how she saw him as judging as everyone else failed to notice.  I enjoyed the story line of the book and thought it was all very clever. The author's writing style made for a really easy read through out the whole book. I didn't stop reading this because it got boring or to confusing.  This book really made me want to watch the movie that they came out after it.

The movie was pretty close to the book in the main story line. They're of course were changes in the movie from the book. I actually liked the fact that they made the beginning high school stuff more mature. Instead of a school dance they were voting for the main person of a green society. I did enjoy the movie overall I thought it was very cute. I didn't think I'd like Vanessa Hudgens in this movie but I did end up liking her and forgetting that it was her.I also thought the actor who played  Kyle, did do a really good job of acting cocky at the beginning and changing. All and all it was all really good. Diffidently a watch even if you haven't read the book.
