Overall 5 stars, brillant anthology
I really enjoyed Fallen even though it was slow in the middle and picked up right at the end. I was hoping Torment would be full of action and fast paced through out the book because the first book was a set up for the series. I heard this from other reviewers before I read it but she is taken to another boarding school and it is slow paced like Fallen but still really good. I liked the new characters and that Penn was remembered. Sometimes after characters die they are forgotten in the next book and not really mentioned. The writing was awesome like in Fallen.

Amazing book! I really enjoyed the new characters although Lena kinda annoyed me in this one. It was sorta slow paced at the beginning like the first one but still really good and it the action pick up in the last half and I couldn't put it down. Ridily is awesome and really grew as a character. The writing was just as good as before and it's amazing how well they can write together. The readers keep learning new things about Gatlin and the casters. I love this series and can't wait for the next one

The written is good but a different style from what I'm used too, which can drag a little. The author is Irish and I read plenty of international authors, so it's not that but his own writing style. The way is set up with all the characters being based on real people is a unique idea and I haven't read anything like it before.
The plot is good. It has the same basic good vs evil magic theme to it.

I'm going to post some of my favorite cover once a week and why I love them
Mortal Instruments and Clockwork Angel
I adore these covers. I love the way they match with the city skyline at the bottom and characters pictures. I like that its just the chest and part of the face of the people so the model's face doesn't mess with the image in my head. Clockwork Angel is similar enough but different since it the prequel series. They're also shiny and look great on the bookshelf.
Morganville Vampires - Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine Series 4.5 stars
House of Night -Burned by PC and Kristen Cast Series 3 stars
Vampire Academy - Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead Series 5 stars
Drake Chronicles - Hearts at Stake and Blood Feud by Alexandra Harvey 4 stars

I really enjoyed this one. It was an easy read.
The plot and set up was good but it dragged a little in the middle. Most of the characters were average, I liked Sam (the dog is pretty awesome too) and the relationships were realistic. The writing was good, not the greatest though. The author did a good job with the backstory of the main characters home planet. The story of the war and everything was the best part and kept me reading, it was a plot driven novel.

Siren by Tricia Rayburn
Betrayed 3 stars
St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . . Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

No one knew of its existence until it was removed from the attic upstairs.
In a beautiful house that overlooks the sea, an antique clock has the power to change the course of their lives.
The power the clock resonates will not only force Destiny and ex-boyfriend David on a journey into the depths of one man's mind long dead, but into the mind of a man filled with hatred and bent on revenge.
With the only clues to the nature of the clock having disappeared into the sea, Destiny and David must retrace the steps the man had taken into the darkness, before they fall prey to the trap he had set in motion over half a century ago.
Hatred never dies.
