In Kinetic we meet Kevin Pierce, he is a teleporter who worked for the Org too. Static follows Kevn and tells his story. In Static Kevin is tested time and time again; everything from his powers, his sanity to his relationships! 

Kevin's character has definitely grown and developed, his powers too have become much stronger. He still possesses his snarky attitude; which I loved back in Kinetic.

Static brings new characters as well as some of the old ones too. These new characters bring with them new issues and new insights and attitudes too. I felt that these characters were more realistic too.

This was another good book full of action, some romance and betrayal too.

Another good 4* rating from me.

~Book 1 Kinetic~

~Synopsis~

Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything...

~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy as part of the tour and in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Kinetic introduced me to the world of Luminaries; people with powers, they're a bit like superhero's. The main character is Annie; she works for the Org (the Luminaries Organisation). The Luminaries help out Government agencies to solve crimes.

When Annie's ex-husband Nick keeps showing up, the head of the Org; Derek; tells Annie that Nick is after her and her unlimited power. As the story continues it becomes clear that someone is lying to Annie, but can she find out who it is? And why they're lying?

The plot in Kinetic is good, for me it started a little slow, but it flowed and when the pace picked up it really did pick up. I felt as though there was occasionally a bit too much going on and it became a little hard to keep up with everything and take everything in.

The characters are engaging and I felt as though there had been a lot of thought behind each of them. That said I felt as though some of them were lacking the ability to feel real.

Overall I did enjoy reading Kinetic and I give it a 4*rating.

Review: Retribution by K.A. Salidas

*Cover art and Synopsis from Goodreads
~Synopsis~

Immortality is never guaranteed... 

As much as she dreams of a simpler existence, blood and violence are Mira’s way of life. Former gladiator turned freedom fighter; she’s carved a trail from New Haven to Caldera Grove and back, freeing her people, the vampires, from enslavement by the humans. 

But with victory almost within reach, a new and powerful enemy emerges. One who’ll be satisfied with nothing less than complete subjugation—or destruction—of all supernatural beings. 

With a secret army of his own, he’s more than prepared for any resistance Mira and her patchy rebel forces can offer, and demands their immediate surrender. 

Never one to back away from a fight, Mira believes she’s ready for anything. But with the battle lines drawn she will be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice. 

Kill or be killed.



~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

In Retribution we rejoin Mira and her battle for safety and peace. But things are far from peaceful. Even though New Haven and several of the other Iron Gate territories have signed a peace treaty, Lone Star haven't. Mira and the council are trying to establish peace with Lone Star but the Magistrate is very willing.

After a video meeting with Regent Marshal Ballard and Magistrate of Lone Star it seems that war is inevitable. Can war be avoided> Will Mira and her people ever be able to live in peace?

Retribution was a fantastic book. It's full of tension, action, dram and emotion. There are twists and turns that keep you wanting more and more. Retribution easily transported me back alongside Mira. I could picture the events as if i was there with her and her friends.

The POV in Retribution changes with each chapter but Ms. Salidas clearly states who's POV we are reading at the beginning of the chapter. The changing POV I think works really well, as it provides an insight into the other characters and how they feel and think about the events as they unfold. 

Ms. Salidas has incorporated so much energy and emotion into Retribution. Her hard work shows with each and every page. I'm so happy to have been able to read Retribution, and I'm really looking forward to the next chapter in Mira's story.

Retribution scores another mega 5* from me!!

If you haven't read this series I would really recommend starting at the very beginning I don't think you'll be disappointed.
