I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

4.5 stars

I received this book from the author. Here is my honest review:

Man I enjoyed this book! I loved the first one, and I really loved this one too. Evangeline's journey gets more interesting as she's hidden in the middle of nowhere with Leo, Max, and the Forero siblings. Sofie is trying to hold down the fort in NYC with all the vamps that came over from Ratheus, plus Viggo and Mortimer. Told from Sofie's and Evangeline's POV, Asylum picks up right where Anathema left off and doesn't skip a beat. New characters are introduced, and old ones make bigger appearances. Plus, there's a section in here were you want to kill the evil lady who wrote this book until we find out the TRUTH!

KA Tucker never disappoints. She's obviously a skilled writer, as this novel is very well-written. Her technique leaves readers in shock and screaming for more by the end. She has a unique take on a well-worn topic: vampires. Witches and magic are involved, and Sofie even meets her match in Mage. It's deliciously complicated and deviously addictive. I highly recommend this series!!!
