Willow Cross

I was introduced to Willows writing while grabbing some free Kindle books. I had picked up Oceans of Red volume one and thought it sounded interesting. Boy was it! Without getting too spoilery it has to do with Demons and our (Humanities) fight to save ourselves. My only complaint was the book was way too short for such a wonderful start to a story. Almost right away I went out and grabbed Oceans of Red volume two and loved it as well. So I knew already when I began my third book by Willow that I would probably like was The Dark Gifts: Birthright. Wow!!! was my first thought. Willow simply has a way with words that bring you into the world she so perfectly weaves. While a lot of stories take some build up to get you into the action this one starts right off with Liz's transformation. You are hauled right away into a world that neither you or Liz understands and you learn with her the rules of being a vampire and the bond that binds her to Michael. Before she can even get a handle on her new world and the fact that she can no longer be part of the family she had before she was turned she is thrust into even more danger by a greedy, heartless, old vampire who has had it out for her for who knows how long...
I have to say that when she meets the witches it is one of the best parts ever and little what a twist. All along I thought it was William. Even now at the end of the book I am left to wonder where is Cass and Dan? Will they be back? Is Jenna and Angie really okay?
If you haven't read this yet what are you waiting for??? As a little added side note for those of you like me who can't wait for the next book as soon as they are's already out there! It's called Inheritance:)

Hello Everyone

So a little about me...My name is Christina and I love almost everything CW except ANTM I cannot stand that show. I am a huge True Blood fan both the books and the TV show and no the differences haven't bothered me. In fact I have to say I love TV Pam and Eric just as much as I love their book versions. Bill on the other hand well that is a different story LOL. I love to read almost anything paranormal and do so almost daily. I have been to one Twilight convention where I met Charlie Bewley, Peter Facinelli, and BooBoo Stewart which was a lot of fun. My next convention is TVD coming in April. I have to say I am super excited to meet Paul Wesley and Matt Davis. The only thing that will be missing is Candice Accola whom I would love to meet at least once. Oh and just a heads up...while I like the lovely Nina Dobrev and think she is wonderful as Katherine I am not a fan of Elena. So if you read me complaining about her I gave you fair warning:) I had read all of the TVD books until the recent ones that have not been written by LJ. I cant help it I just believ it is her series as far as the books go and just have no interest in reading them now.
I am not a fan of Adam on the Secret Circle either, actually I prefer Jake (if Cassie has to have a man that is). I have been a fan of Joe Lando (John Blackwell) for forever, since he was on OLTL and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. I have not read the Secret Circle books so any differences in the show have not bothered me.
So enough about me. I think you can see where my interests lay. I also have a huge interest in movies as well so dont be surprised to read my reviews about those as I see them.
