Oh, my. This series is hot. I have read paranormal romances before but Kresley Cole got me addicted. I don't really understand how it happened, so maybe writing about it will give me insights. The world of the Immortals After Dark (IAD) is populated by a variety of powerful immortals, from vampires to Lykae, witches, demons, sorceresses, Valkyries to gods and goddesses.

In this universe archangels are angels that have become so powerful they can destroy a city with a thought. They rule over humans from their aeries in the world's biggest cities. The setting is still the 21st century. Only instead of the rich and famous, the paparazzi prefer to follow angels around, while fans use social media to rave over their favorite angels. The archangels tolerate it but every now and then they set examples to make sure that humans know without a doubt who have the power over life and death.

My Top 10 Books of 2014

Most of my favorite books in 2014 are Fantasy. My top read though is the Rosales Saga, a series of five historical and political novels, which trace five generations of two families, namely the Samsons (poor farmers) and the Asperri (wealthy mestizos) through Spanish and American periods in the History of the Philippines up until the pre-Martial Law Period in the 1970s. It's a gripping read that anyone who likes Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet will appreciate. The Rosales Saga is written by Filipino National Artist F. Sionil Jose.

A novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together. Sounds interesting, right?

The blurb was hot. The world-building had promise. The history of the angels and other immortals was tragic, and should lead to some interesting stories of tortured heroes. But the characters in this first volume are annoying. The angels treat women like sex toys and the female lead was spineless.

Liu delivers a coming-of-age novella, a post apocalyptic fairy tale, where women are fed on for their life forces. it’s up to Maggie, a Jill-of-all-trades and one of the last female survivors, to hunt down and destroy an army of darkness. This story reminds me a little of the movie Legends starring a very young Tom Cruise and Mia Sara where the princess is taken into the lair of Darkness where she was tempted to become one of them. In The Robber Bride, Maggie is also taken by the leader of an army of supernatural beings.

This collection of four urban fantasy and paranormal romance stories works for me. I really liked Ilona Andrews’ novella, Magic Steals, and Lisa Shearin’s Lucky Charms. I also enjoyed Nalini Singh's Secrets at Midnight.
