Throughout this series there’s quite a bit that happens, but I’m glad that Farrell has written the story in a way where when one book ends, the following novel will pick up just about where the previous novel closed. And there was no exception with Tempt!

What I enjoyed about Tempt:

  • These books are fast reads. Like, 1-3 hour reads.
  • The pacing of the novels are fast, which keeps the story interesting.
  • There is a lot of fighting that takes place throughout the series, but I am always surprised by just how much fighting scenes there are.
  • How caring Ava is, even after all that’s been done to her.

Farrell’s writing sucks me into her books so quickly. I honestly love Farrell’s writing so much. She has to be one of my favourite authors of all time.

I give Tempt, 3 stars.

See you soon, and Happy Reading!

Taunt, by Claire Farrell | Book Review #398

Trigger Warning: Emotional Abuse, Manipulation

This review may contain spoilers.

11431903Taunt is the second book in the Ava Delaney series by Claire Farrell.

Ava needs to forget all about the vampires, but they won’t leave her alone. Between her failing business, angry landlord, disloyal friends, and vampire stalkers, life is starting to feel pretty stressful. When Ava finally deals with her biggest problem, she gets caught up in the chain of events it triggers and is dragged along a path she can’t escape from.

Ava has to figure out exactly what her biggest threat is: the humans, the vampires, the Council—or her true heritage.

I have read Taunt many times before, so my original thoughts are mostly forgotten, but I still remember some of my first impressions.

What I thought of Taunt when I first read it, was that it was great. The story moves fast, and the characters are all pretty much likeable. Continue reading

Thirst, by Claire Farrell | Book Review #397

Please Note that this review has been copied and pasted from my GoodReads, to this book review. Some parts are edited, but most remains the same —- like my love for this series. — Enjoy!


9797936Ava Delaney calls herself a hybrid – a living, breathing human who happens to have vampire poison running through her veins. The only thing greater than her thirst for human blood is her capacity for guilt. She does her best to avoid the human world, for everyone’s sake.

When Ava accidentally enslaves a human while saving him from a vampire, she realises she has to look for help setting him free. Despite her misgivings, she expands her world but finds herself dragged into a possible vampire civil war. With the help of some new friends with ambiguous loyalties, she tries to find a way to keep her human, and herself, alive.


I really love the Ava Delaney series. The setting is in Ireland, which is awesome! In this first book, Thirst, we get used to the characters. While Thirst is an introductory to the main characters involved in this story, we also get to know about Ava’s surrounding world and how she lives her daily life, as well as getting a sense of the plot and where the story will take us.  Continue reading
