I have finished this series - Yes Rachels Final in the Trilogy released today - Holocaust
This series was the first that the Author has published. Lexia was a bit of an unusual character, a little older than her peers, she thought she was a normal girl and looked forward to graduating and planning her future with her BFF Alice.
But life as most of us find out never goes to plan!
Lexia is attacked and from that moment on she's on a path to find out who she really is.
On her way to finding that answer she meets Lincoln... Tall Dark Mysterious - she finds herself drawn to him even though her gut says he has a dark and dangerous vibe to him.
We all like the bad boys, but Linc's not bad, he is just very wary of who and what Lexia is.
Join them both on a wild ride to that answer.
and lucky for you - you can read books 2 and 3 too - no waiting.
Hmmm I'm not really sure why I hadn't read this series yet... I've kept putting it off for some reason. With the recent release of book 3 I thought it was about time to start. But having finally read 'Lexia', I now know why... Rachel & her cliffhanger, I got to the end & BAM what a major cliffy! I would have been hounding Rachel for the finished series on a daily basis. 'Lexia' is book 1 in Rachel's "The Deadwood Hunter" series & I would advise you read this baby first.... seriously you don't want to miss out.
I loved everything about this book, from the interractions between all the characters, to the action & paranormal creatures. We get to read how Lexia's life turned upside down & how she turned her life around. What an AMAZINGLY CAPTIVATING read. Thank you Rachel, I loved 'Lexia'!!
This Debut novel was provided too me by the author for my honest review and I have to say it rocked my reader...
I read it with baited breathe, starry eyes, and blood pumping at many a scenes. It hooked me from within the first pages.
I enjoy a shifter romance - filled with exhilarating and powerful connections, lust, love and smoking hot scenes. This book did not disappoint. It kept me on the edge of my seat, and the ending I just wanted to pull my hair out of frustration, and needing book two. LIKE NOW!!! Sob sob......
Rachel has jam packed this story will lots of action, adventure, mystery, heartbreak, love and new discoveries and for those who like their reads hot - there are many loving moments that will have you panting ...
There were some holly hotness - and well written sexy - smoking passioate scenes, that will not only have your panties in a twist but have you purring along with that Black Panther. ** purrrrrrrrrrrr** So for all those like some tango within their reads this will please you ! ** blushes**
We follow Lexia on a journey of discovery - we see her coming to terms with what is inside of her and at times trying to take over, but Lexia is fighting the darkness that wants to consume her.
However at times - it's like a raging river, just wanting to pour through her blood. Take over - consume her body and her soul. We see her fighting her calling many a times. But also see it be unleashed and let me tell you she kicked some serious arse !
The blood running in her veins is strong - determined and vengeful , at times for all the right reasons to protect the ones she loves... We see many heartbreaking moments for Lexia and I have to say I felt for her at the loss of a loved one. Her normal life seems not so dull and boring compared to the life and supernatural beings, she never knew existed before.
The plot was fast paced, easily flowed and was well put forth. The story was well written, dialogues all ran smoothly and continued on smoothly.
Rachel effectively created a great balance within the story - all her secondary characters given their own places within the story and also giving us a laugh or two along the way.
We were given mystery and mayhem - secrets were revealed. And the ending doesn't get me started... I eagerly await the next instalment and to see where this new shifter blends in. (( Intrigued )) I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Lexia and Linc. Many a times, I wanted to pet his velveteen coat, listen to him purrrrrr... sigh - The author has given us a hero - hotty to swoon after, one whom loves dearly and protecs without thought.
We are shown depth into the characters along the way - and definition into whom they are. This I like to see in a read, filled with emtion so that as a reader I can feel within the pages. The descriptions were well fleshed out , making it a hot, action packed read on many occasions.
Unique filled action packed story,filled with love, loss and betrayl.
Heart-wrenching, romantic, steamy and simply unputtable-down.
Fantastic first book in the series and I eagerly await more.
This was a fabulous start to what seems to be a amazing new paranormal series, Lincoln and Lexia really dragged you into their world, while the supporting characters created a wealth of fun and emotion that help offset the story. These characters and their motivations were very easy to relate to from the beginning, and really kept you emotionally invested throughout this first installment of their story. Really excited to get to the rest of this series, the 2nd is out already and the 3rd is currently being written by author Rachel Raithby. Can't wait!!
