Welcome to a world where nightmarish creatures reign supreme. Five hundred years ago, Jack made a deal with the devil. It’s difficult for him to remember much about his mortal days. So, he focuses on fulfilling his sentence as a Lantern—one of the watchmen who guard the portals to the Otherworld, a realm crawling with every nightmarish creature imaginable. Jack has spent centuries jumping from town to town, ensuring that nary a mortal—or not-so-mortal—soul slips past him. That is, until he meets beautiful Ember O’Dare. Seventeen, stubborn, and a natural-born witch, Ember feels a strong pull to the Otherworld. Undeterred by Jack’s warnings, she crosses into the forbidden plane with the help of a mysterious and debonair vampire—and the chase through a dazzling, dangerous world is on. Jack must do everything in his power to get Ember back where she belongs before both the earthly and unearthly worlds descend into chaos.

Rhapsodic⭐⭐1/2 (As deep as a puddle)
If it was not for the fact that A Court of Mist and Fury was only published 6 month before Rhapsodic I would be screaming ”half-assed fan fiction”.. But 6 month is not enough time to write and publish a whole book.. Right?
Afterburn/Afterchock ⭐⭐ (Well, there were food..)
Sylvia Day is my go to author when I'm in the mood for something adult (meaning x-rated). The stories are usually rich with emotions and drama with the addition of being really HOT. Sometimes a bit corny, but that usually makes me laugh so no complaints. But Afterburn/Afterchock was different for me. //Grimmsnaught
