Short and Sweet book reviews #19 (Winged Victory by L.F. Hampton, Split the Sun by Tessa Elwood, Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krantz)
Winged Victory (Winged Victory #1) by L.F. Hampton
Science Fiction Romance
The plot of Winged Victory is fairly predictable but Hampton puts some twists in that kept it interesting. I loved the take on vampires. Who would have thought they looked like beautiful winged angels. When Traveen and Abby crash on a ice world Traveen makes a decision that changes everything. There is a lot of tension and danger for both Abby and Traveen before they get to their HEA. This is book one of a new series but some of the characters seemed to have a back-story from a previous series that would also be fun to read.
Split the Sun (Inherit the Stars #2) by Tessa Elwood
Science Fiction/YA Science Fiction
Kit has enough going to take down anyone. When she decides to end it all someone stops her. From there she had a very confusing set of events that lead to a great conclusion. Kit even seems to get a happy ending. This is YA but I think anyone who likes a complex story line and great characters will love the book. This is part of a series but works very well as a stand alone.
Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krantz
Secret Sisters is Jayne Ann Krantz at her best. There is a lot of tension, a great back-story, and an intricate plot. It is very hard to tell who is the good guy and who is the bad. Turns out there are a lot of bad guys. Each has their own unique agenda and Madeline, Daphne, Jack Rayner and his bother Abe are all busy trying to sort them out. A great story that is very hard to put down. I did not know exactly who was doing what until the end.
