He is strong, sexy, and on a quest to fight his dark nature. Yet the one woman he most desires—is poison to him.

Okay, this was my first Nocturne and I really didn't know what to expect. But I love Michele's writing style, so I was really looking forward to reading it.

The story's basically about a rock star, who also happens to be a vampire. He meets a not-witch called Jane when they accidentally cross paths, and is totally smitten by her! The chemistry between them is sizzling as they slowly learn new things about each other. Not going to go into it much more than that because I might spoil something for anyone that hasn't read it yet!

I was intrigued by one of the secondary characters called Ravin Crosse, which I think Michele is currently writing a book with her as the main character. So that'll be pretty cool to read.

The story unfolded very nicely, and I really liked Jane. There was something about her... Michael was likeable too. Not too much brooding going on, though he was still fighting an inner battle of darkness. Such is the life of a vampire, I guess.

Yeah, I enjoyed this book and wonder what other cool worlds this imprint will unleash.

Okay, I got there today! YAY... very excited. And although I technically could've written for a little longer, I stopped because I reached the end of a chapter. There's no point in starting a new one at the moment, since I left it in a cliff-hanger-ish kinda way. Lol.

The word meter:

50,068 / 50,000

Okay, so Nano is offically over for me at the moment. I've met my 50k during my first attempt. It's exciting, but the novel isn't done yet. Nope, I'm going to keep on writing until 30 November. And will hopefully reach the desired 80k, or there abouts. I just need to get the rest of this story out of my head. I'm really enjoying it, still!

Now I think I'm going to cruise the net to veg out for a bit...

Have a GREAT weekend guys!

Okay, I'll start out by saying that I absolutely loved DESTINY. I read it last week and enjoyed every page, couldn't wait to get to the end because I just had to know what was going to happen next.

This one's the second book in the series. It starts out knee-deep in action and bad guys, and pretty much keeps going like that until the end. Roux wasn't in it as much as I would've liked him to be. And neither was Garin - though he gets a mention, which was definitely worth reading about!

Anyway, Annja's heard rumours about the discovery of Solomon's Jar, which supposedly holds captive the demons King Solomon bound to build his temple. It's right up her alley and the search takes her all over the world, facing bad people wherever she goes. There's also a London-based cult, the Russian mafiya, a celebrity guru and even a love interest for Annja.

The story is once again interesting, as it weaves all over the place until you're kept wondering if the demons will make an appearance... I especially liked Tsipporah and her interaction with Annja. I sure hope she pops up in future books. And although, overall it wasn't as good as the first one, it's still a good adventure book. Annja's still a likeable character, as she slowly starts to accept her fight for good.

I'm looking forward to the next one, The Spider Stone.
