My Review:

Book 1: Creatura

Nely is an amazing writer. I couldn’t put Creatura down. It’s a page turner. I love the characters and the world that she has created. There are some great twists and turns. We are introduced to Isis. She is one unique person. She can control her dreams but she also finds out some even more interesting things about herself.  She sets out to figure out what is happening to her and find out more about her family especially her father.  Her friend David goes along with her to help her out. Although there is more to him and his family than meets the eye. The ending is great. It leaves the reader wanting to know about Isis and David. This is one that would be a great addition to any reader’s TBR list.

Book 2: Fruit of Misfortune

Fruit of Misfortune is just as good as Creatura. I couldn’t put it down. It’s another page turner. It has more great twists and turns. We learn more about Isis and David. Isis starts learning who she really is and why she’s changing. More is revealed about David and his family as well. Both of them have some very interesting changes happening to them. With the help of David’s family and their friends they start fighting to survive the changes. The ending was definitely a surprise. This series would be a great addition to any reader’s TBR list.  I look forward to reading more of Nely’s books.

Description:

 

Sixteen-year old Toby was trained by a family of hunters to kill shape-shifters — but he has a unique weapon in his arsenal. With a touch of his hand, Toby can lift the magical protection shape-shifters use to disguise themselves as human. It’s an unusual skill for a hunter, and he prefers to kill monsters the old-fashioned way: with a blade.

Because of his special skill, Toby suspects he may be a monster himself. His suspicions deepen when William, a jackal-headed shape-shifter, saves him from an ambush where Toby’s the only survivor. And Toby doubts William helped him for purely altruistic reasons. With his list of allies running thin, Toby must reconcile his hatred of shifters and the damning truth that one saved his life. It’ll take both of them to track down the monster who ordered the ambush.

And Toby needs his unlikely alley because he has a vicious enemy — the infamous Circe, who has a vendetta to settle against the hunters. Toby has to unravel the mystery of his dual nature. And he has to do it on the run — before Circe finds him and twists him to her own ends.

About The Author:

H.D. Lynn is like Harry Potter in one way: she’s currently renting an apartment with a bedroom under her building’s stairs. Other than this, she explores fantasy worlds through storytelling like anyone else. She loves books with a mix of humor, adventure, and horror, and especially enjoys the urban fantasy genre. GOD’S PLAY is her first published novel.

When not writing, she enjoys hiking, climbing, and running. She’s a voracious reader, and has found listening to audiobooks while backpacking to be a perfect mix of two of her favorite things. She currently lives in Connecticut, but finds herself on the road often.
