Daughters of Souls & Silence, by Annie Anderson | Book Review

Hello, and welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog I have my book review of:

Daughters of Souls & Silence, by Annie Anderson.

Daughters of Souls & Silence is the second book in the Rogue Ethereal series.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Blood, Gore, Explosions, Fires.

Please note that I’m quite sure that I missed a few possible triggers.

A Council full of Ethereal Elders wants me dead. Yep, it’s a regular Tuesday.

When you kill a demon there are consequences.

Centuries-old witch, tattoo artist, half-demon… none of those titles are going to save me this time. The only way I’m going to get out of my death sentence is to take down the biggest, baddest demon there is… My father.

And I thought being burned at the stake was bad…

Woman of Blood and Bone, by Annie Anderson | Book Review

Hello hello! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog, I have my book review of:

Woman of Blood and Bone, by Annie Anderson.

Woman of Blood and Bone is the first book in the Rogue Ethereal series.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Murder mention, Blood mention, Stabbing, Stalking, mentions of domestic abuse (boyfriend to girlfriend), pregnancy, death.

Please note that I may have not recorded all of the possible triggers.

I was burned at the stake at fourteen…
I was drowned in a lake when I was twenty-four…
At twenty-seven, I was stoned in a public square…

I have died a hundred times in a hundred different ways, usually at the hands of the humans I’ve tried to save. But when a pregnant young woman finds her way into my tattoo shop with a demon on her tail, things go from bad to worse. Being a centuries-old witch isn’t going to help me – nothing will.

This time I might just die in a way that sticks… Permanently.

To be fairly honest with you, I didn’t put much thought into Woman of Blood and Bone prior to reading it. Actually, I don’t think I read the synopsis at all. My mind is all over the place with what I’ve read over the past few years, so I’m unable to remember if I’ve read anything else by Annie Anderson. I feel like I have, but I’m not sure. However, when I was reading Woman of Blood and Bone, the story gave me the feeling as if I was reading Anderson’s work for the very first time. So it works out either way.

Dead to Me, by Annie Anderson | Book Review

Hello, and welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today on the blog I have my review of:

Dead to Me, by Annie Anderson.

Dead to Me is the first book in the Grave Talker series.

Please Note that I didn’t record / write down any triggers that this book may have.

Meet Darby. Coffee addict. Homicide detective. Oh, and she can see ghosts, too…

There are only three rules in Darby Adler’s life.
One: Don’t talk to the dead in front of the living.
Two: Stay off the Arcane Bureau of Investigation’s radar.
Three: Don’t forget rules one and two.

With a murderer desperate for Darby’s attention and an ABI agent in town, things are about to get mighty interesting in Haunted Peak, TN.

What an interesting novel. For real for real. I love a good murder-mystery novel, and wowee. Dead to Me certainly did not disappoint.
