  1. The beauty of paranormal YA is that anything goes As a writer, you have practically absolute freedom As a reader, you can experience green skies, flying turtles, nice demons and instalove.But wait what about the last aspect In the last years, Instalove or the falling in love of two persons entirely unconnected with no apparent reason to like each other has established itself as the main source of love for YA heroines and heros Of course there are exceptions, though.Why is that I really don t see [...]


  2. This is a review of a beta copy of Soul Kissed, so there may be some differences between what I have read and the finished product I am a person who values my sleep I need it It is essential for my sanity So I try to be a good girl when I read my books at night and not stay up all night reading them, no matter how much I might enjoy them Well, all my hard work in trying to create good sleep patterns fell apart when I began this book yesterday evening I simply could not put this book down I would [...]


  3. First of all, just look at that cover How gorgeous is that I am in love with this cover Anyway.Soul Kissed is book one in The Moonstone Saga by one of my favourite authors, Courtney Cole.The Moonstone Saga is a spin off series from her Bloodstone Saga, so if you haven t read those books I suggest you do first before picking up Soul Kissed You can probably read this one without having previously read the Bloodstone Saga books, but it would make things a lot easier if you have read them first.You [...]


  4. In the Bloodstone series we were introduced to Empusa, daughter of the goddess of witchcraft, Hecate Due to a curse, she is forced to consume human souls and human blood to keep her immortality To make matters worse, the curse was laid upon her by her father and, if he s able to find her, he ll kill her so that the curse can never be returned to him Talk about family problems Em is living in hiding and only consuming souls and blood when she can no longer function without them During one soul su [...]


  5. I am a lucky lucky girl to have recieved this ARC in exchange for my honest review I didn t think that ANYTHING could be as epic and emotional as Courtney Cole s Bloodstone saga, but believe me if you loved that series than you will fall head over heels for this book, I know I did In the last series we are introduced to the character Empusa, daughter of the the goddess of witchcraft, Hecate Due to a curse laid upon her by her father, she is forced to consume human souls and human blood to keep h [...]


  6. Another fabulous debut, Soul Kissed made is great What I loved most about this book is the banging plot If you love greek mythology and are up for an awesome twist read this story I loved reading each chapter, getting to know of the back round story as well as see the characters developed Being able to step into the characters shoes and feel the emotions, the rush of adrenaline when it comes to searching out clues is awesome.Power play is a manger part of the book that left me speechless left a [...]


  7. This is by far one of my most favorites so farout of any of the authors that I have discovered since I received my Kindle this pasr Christmas.Courtney Cole is amazingly talented which I quickly found out during the Bloodstone Saga.Her take on Empusa is amazing.her strength shines through in every aspect of her character I can t wait to se where her and Brennan end up in Soul Bound


  8. Love the cover Brilliant book, couldn t have asked for better Thoroughly enjoyed it way better than expected that s for sure.Don t underestimate this book, it will pull you in I didn t put it down between when I started it until when I finished it.Book 2 here I come


  9. I love this book so far amazing i love Ems character and Brennan s humor for that matter.So when does Soul Bound come out I love that mythology was such a big component to this storyAnd the way Hades was described well it made me want to meet him.



  10. Reviewed by MegI m a huge fan of the Bloodstone Saga, and well, anything that Courtney Cole writes I had no doubt that I would enjoy the first book in the Moonstone Saga In reality, I did than enjoy it I loved Soul Kissed.At the end of Bloodstone Saga, we start to become better acquainted with Empusa Em, for short and begin to learn a little of her back story We don t really get to KNOW her, but we get to know of her Em is the daughter of Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft She s an immortal dem [...]


  11. AwesomeI love the characters and how each one was different I just couldn t out it down U long for the two main characters to be together even if something could happen from it Can t wait to read the second one.

  13. I was both honoured and fortunate to have received not only an ARC but also a few glimpses into this book during it s early stages in Ms Cole s writing process After just a few highly teasing chapters I knew I would love what was yet to come I couldn t wait to dive in when I was forwarded an ARC and it was every bit as fantastic as I d hoped Thank you once again Courtney for the honour of being a beta reader for you I admit and as Ms Cole knows , at first I was a bitleery not the right word real [...]


  14. Greek mythology has always been a favorite of mine and Courtney Cole is a wonderful author That is why it is so difficult fo rme to write this review Soul Kissed was just an okay read for me for numerous reasons.Empusa is an immortal and a demigod She is the daughter of Hecate, Greek goddess of magic and Mormo, a soul sucking vampire At an early age, Empusa is betrayed by her father and sent to live in the Underworld in the kingdom of Hades She is cursed to fulfil his role, sucking out the souls [...]


  15. Oh man, oh man what to say The cover is pretty Well this book has everything from witches to gods, to blood sucking soul taking, to curses and some ghost The only thing I felt was left out was a werewolf but there is a book two I feel bad saying I didn t like this book, but I didn t like it The first part of the book was so fast in a bad way then it got good, but then it just fell short I will tell you what I didn t like and why So the start of this book was really hard for me because there is a [...]


  16. I won a copy of this book from the Reading 24x7 blog I was really excited to read this book because the premise seemed interesting I have always enjoyed books about Mythology This book doesn t disappoint, I really loved it My only issue was that the opening was somewhat confusing It took the first chapter to figure out what was going on It isn t a bad thing, but know that you just jump right into the story, there isn t any set up.Em is a very strong character and very vulnerable at the same time [...]


  17. I have to say I m a big fan of Greek Myths and I mean accurate Greek myths not the ones where gods are caring and fluffy and well confused or worse virgins I m looking at you Hadesor I guess I should say James so anyway this book was great and actually or less correct on the Greek mythology part So lets start with Empusa This girl was amazing She is smart, careful and knows how to behave in difficult situations She isn t dependent on the male hero and I m so happy that there is a book where the [...]


  18. I gave it 3 stars only because I found it hard to connect to a romance that developed as fast as Em s and Brennan s So far I have only read this book of the series so I am only rating the this book and not the entire series I do intend to read the rest of the books because I fell in love with Courtney Cole s writing while reading The Bloodstone saga and I m sure she will still deliver I just have a hard time with a full blown romance that only took a few days before they start saying I love you [...]


  19. This book has a lot to do with Greek Roman Gods and Goddesses When I first started reading it, I was confused by it, as it all starts off with a dying man and a boy As we get into the story we learn what the heroine is, who her father and mother is Then we learn about our hero, who his father really is and what happens when the hero and heroine get together What potential they have At the endish of the book, we learn about the apocalypse that could happen if the hero and heroine get together bu [...]


  20. I adored the Bloodstone series so obviously I went after this one next I m slightly disappointed though I m not sure what happened Maybe the book was rushed The writing just wasn t that good You re gonna tell me that a 17 year old boy is going to just accept that he s the son of Apollo and gods are real and she s a witch who eats souls He s just okay with that To easy Cop out And the insta love is annoying I m not entirely sure that I understand how their combined powers can kill the world hones [...]


  21. This was okay I really enjoyed the Greek mythology aspect, but the insta love romance just became all consuming Pages and pages of angst that didn t add to or advance the plot, and it became very frustrating for me One character would declare they would love the other and never leave them, and then turn around and try to walk away before being convinced that they just can t do it Wash, rinse, repeat The main character is super evil, but we re never told why other than he just is evil No hint of [...]


  22. I didn t like the ending pouts lolOnly because it ended so suddenly.Various things were happening and so many things unsolved, just to end it like that.However I enjoyed this fantasy book, it drew me in.I m not into mythological history of any sort.Well, I m not into history, so I cannot say how I feel about it being as close to realistic or how much research was put into this book.I feel as though Ms Cole did a GREAT job And anyone can enjoy it Unless they re looking for how much research was p [...]


  23. Very good book It s sad what Empusas father did to her making her just like him but a good thing comes out of wandering the earth dodging her father Brennan After all she s been through already I m glad she found her soul mate But there s trouble in having him around cause her and him together make sparks literally And the people she thinks are there to help her are really only out for themselves In the end though she has Brennan and that s all that matters.


  24. Love love love love love love Did I mention I LOVE this book I love finding a new favorite series to follow How had I not ever heard of Courtney Cole I am so glad I stumbled upon Soul Kissed as an freebie and I had already bought book two before I was finished with Soul Kissed Read this book You will love the story line, the characters, everything


  25. I was not as impressed with this as I was with Courtney Cole s other works Don t get me wrong it was still a great beginning to a series and I do intend to continue the series It just wasn t as captivating the characters didn t appeal to me as much as the bloodstone characters did But definitely still worth reading.


  26. I d say of a 4.5 stars The book was good, the idea pretty original and the mythology dead on I m a big fan of Greek mythology like a real know it all myths person and the myths and characters were the near perfect embodiment of the greek gods The story was good overall and the romance sometimes cheesy but still cute Good book


  27. I d like to read this book but it is not available on the nook I don t buy books or anything from because I don t agree with their practices so I guess I won t be reading this one Too bad it looks good.


  28. Loving this saga, was never interested in gods ect but this has been spun into a vamp love story,very cleverly written Praise to cole for this new and exciting series highly recommend I have become a cole fan.


  29. I loved the combination of Greek mythology and vampires The main character s relationship with her soul mate made sense to me The storyline ending in a way that left me wondering what will happen next I ll have to look for Soul Bound.
