Cursed by N. Isabelle Blanco // ARC Review

December 16, 2020

Cursed by N. Isabelle Blanco

Ice-blue eyes assess me in the coldest of ways.
My soul freezes even more.
My heart nearly disappears in a burst of molten ashes fanned by her presence.
She scares me to the core.
Fascinates me like the quintessential abyss calling my name.
I'm sure I'm not the first man to get aroused by the cause of his demise.

Cursed by N. Isabelle Blanco

Cursed by N. Isabelle Blanco

Release - January 12, 2021
Genre - Dark Paranormal Romance
Hero POV - 1st person
Heat Level - 4 out of 5 (a couple of scenes)
Format/Source - eARC provided by the author
Length - 180 pages

“They sent you here to kill me, but that’s not what you’re here to do. You’re here to own me . . .”

I let my blood hit that contract—thought it was a joke.
Later, I convinced myself it was a hallucination.
Truth is, I sold my soul.

“I awoke surrounded by death. It wasn’t long until I realized it’d all been by my hand . . . and my teeth.”

They call themselves The Bestowers.

They’ll give you the world, but it’ll come at a price.

And before they send their assassins after you, they’ll bring out the monstrous darkness within.

You’ll kill and destroy every bit of the gift they gave you, leaving nothing behind in your wake.

My time is up and they’ve chosen their most dangerous murderer to end my miserable life.

“I dreamt of her before I met her. I saw her. Tasted her. She’s a stain on my insides I can never erase.”

Her destiny isn’t to kill me, but she will own my soul.

I would’ve been better off dying by her hellish flames.

What. In. The. Actual... I don't even know where to start. This author, N. Isabelle Blanco, is a genius when it comes to creating paranormal worlds and the characters that dwell in them. There's magic and wonder mixed with raunchiness and something that vaguely resembles humanity. Reading Cursed was a bit like falling down the rabbit hole and it's a crazy drop!

Silas had lived a broken existence and when, during a drug binge, he's offered the chance at a better life, he grabs onto it with both hands. Sell his soul to have a roof over his head, food in his stomach, and the kind of security he's never known? No problem. Especially when he can convince himself that it was all a hallucination. So what happens when that 'hallucination', that 'dream', becomes all too real? You get the madness I found in Cursed.

I really enjoyed the infusion of voodoo and the Creole culture. The depictions of legendary people were amazing and it was very easy to envision this other world in New Orleans. While Silas came off as pretty pathetic due to his obsession with his witch, and she came off as incredibly abrasive and unlikeable, I couldn't get enough of their cat and mouse game. It was scorching hot! There is so much more to explore in this world that Blanco has created, between these characters and the intriguing mythical others that were introduced, and I can't wait to see what the author comes up with for them next.

DEPRAVED by N. Isabelle Blanco & Dee Garcia

June 10, 2019

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. - John 16:13

Yet my God is more silent than ever before.
Even worse, I’m trapped in this spiral, more focused on a singular addiction.
It isn’t the alcohol this time.
The killer’s turning more brazen. With each roadblock we throw up in front of her, she finds a new way around it.
Murdering at a quicker speed.
Taunting me at every turn.
But it’s Kiera that dominates.
Kiera that rules.
The mystery of her becomes even more important than all the lives being lost in Boston.
There’s an illness in her family. One as pervasive as what’s infected our streets. I don’t know what it is yet, but my soul is determined to find out.
Maybe my God isn’t silent.
Maybe he is speaking.
The voice telling me I need to save her is the strongest of all.
The most consuming.
There’s a circle of lies—my own and that of others—closing in from every side.
Little do I realize, everything is about to crash down around me, putting every one I love at risk.

Review of Tainted by N. Isabelle Blanco & Dee Garcia

March 13, 2019

Tainted by N Isabelle Blanco and Dee Garcia
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. - Mark 7:20-23

The streets of Boston are running red with blood.
It isn’t the first time, either.
Forget the history of this city; it’s what happened nearly nine-years-ago that continues to haunt us all.
Especially me.
They say obsessions can destroy you.
Well, I’m here to tell you that’s a fact.
A serial killer played games with us once, leaving our heads spinning.
I chased them down, threw my whole life into chaos. From the very first kill, I was there.
Losing myself.
My career nearly ended before it ever began.
Then, suddenly, the killer vanished. Gone into the shadows. Never to be heard from again.
Until now.
They’re back, fiercer and bolder than ever. An obsession reawakened that threatens my sanity and leads me towards a collision with a new fixation.
One more dangerous.
One much more vile.
She’s everything my religion warns man to stay away from—the quintessential temptress sent to ruin our lives.
I thought the case would be what ended me.
Turns out, I’d sell my soul for just another taste of her.

My Review of Systematic Siege

This isn’t how our story ends.
No. This murder we’ve just committed?
This is how our story truly begins . . .

I told myself I was going to save her.

I didn’t realize what a lie that was.

This neurosis has sunk in too deep. All it took was one glimpse of another man inside her for the beast that murdered Barnard to finish consuming me.

I’ve turned her into killer.

Just like me.

With every corroded, toxicity-infested sin laid bare between us, all that’s left is revenge.

And the chasm of diabolical need that tethers us.

A need to consume each other.
A need to make our enemies pay.
They stole seven years from us. Every ounce of sanity we had left.
Now, we’re going to steal everything from them.

Most of all, we won’t stop until every single one of them is dead.

I told myself I was going to save Lexi . . . in reality, I’ve finished ruining her.

And she would have it no other way.

Warning: this series is not for everyone. As the story progresses, dark themes are explored that might be a trigger for some. Please read at your own discretion. Definitely 18+.

Review: Silence by N. Isabelle Blanco

January 21, 2019

Silence by N Isabelle Blanco
Release: January 23, 2019
Genre: Paranormal Romance - Forbidden
Male POV - 1st person
Heat: 4.5
Type: Standalone
Format: eARC provided by author

When my brother, the King, married fifteen-years ago, I welcomed his new family as my own. His wife . . . her baby girl.
My niece by marriage.
I left to war the savages. For years I traveled back and forth, seeing that child age.
But then the last battle kept me away for five years . . .
I’ve returned now to take my rightful place: second-in-command to the throne.

I am everything this kingdom stands for—everything it needs. The kind of pillar not even my brother can aspire to being.
They all look up to me. To maintaining their code.
Yet, they do not know the truth.
In the grip of the shadows, she haunts me at night.
During the day, she smiles and whispers, showing me traces of that sweet little girl.
At night, she’s there, a vision in black. Watching, stalking . . . no words need to be said.
She knows.
I’m losing the battle. This thing between us is an evil spark.
Thousands of years of honor are threatened—about to be shredded by the impossibility of our desire.
She doesn’t care.
It’s in her silence that she kills me . . . and she wields it like a blade.
The savage call of her blood is more than I can handle . . .
And the need to own her body might destroy us both.

ARC Review: SYSTEMATIC SIEGE by N. Isabelle Blanco

October 31, 2018

Systematic Siege by N. Isabelle Blanco
Life separated us.
Destiny tied me to her.
Obsession drove me mad.
I knew they all hurt her. What I didn’t understand is how deep . . .

Seven years ago, they ripped her from me—my father. The friends I made at school. Jealousy drove all of those bastards into conspiring against us.

And they won.

I almost killed myself after losing her.

Now I live for only three things:

I will destroy everyone who hurt her.
I will find her.
I’ll become the biggest monster ever known to accomplish those things.

I’m at the head of my father’s empire now. A corporate king. I’m ready to finally put in place the plan I’ve been working on for years.

I’m ready to find my Lexi.

What I didn’t realize is that she had already found me.

Warning: this series is not for everyone. As the story progresses, dark themes are explored that might be a trigger for some. Please read at your own discretion. Definitely 18+.

ARC Review: BLOOD DRENCHED CONQUEST by N. Isabelle Blanco

September 11, 2018

Blood Drenched Conquest by N. Isabelle Blanco

When a human male breaks your heart, it can feel like your life is ending.
When an immortal god does it . . . well, I learned the hard way that can lead to actual death.
The last few years I’ve been isolated except for my two best friends Ismini and Evesse.
Until they both went missing.
Until I started searching for them and connected with the last thing I expected.
A pair of white eyes.
He ruined me. All because I was stupid enough to give in.
Too weak to fight him.
His scent.
His taste.
Everything about that god possessed me. I knew he’d be the end of me. I knew it.
I couldn’t stay away regardless . . .
And he drove me to suicide.
Now I’m back.
I’m different.
A monster I cannot recognize.
A monster thirsting for blood . . .

ARC Review: FREED by Elena M. Reyes & N. Isabelle Blanco

March 21, 2018

Freed by Elena M Reyes & N Isabelle Blanco
They wanted this.
To strip us of our humanity. Devolve us back to our most basic forms.
They used our love for each other as the trigger.
Now, they’ve succeeded. They’ve turned us into something else.
Into creatures willing to spill all their blood, end-all their lives, in the hopes of finally being freed.
Even if we die in our attempt to escape, Noah and I are determined to take as many of them down with us as we can.
Before it’s all over, we will all bleed for their sins.
All of us.
