Five full-length novels only 99 cents.

Amaranth by Rachael Wade – Camille moves to Southern Louisiana to escape her abusive past, not expecting to fall in love and plummet into the world of Amaranth, a place of exile for reformed vampires.
A very interesting, unique and fresh vampire story, that will make you want read more of it. Fortunately, you can as it is just book one in a trilogy. Although it can be read as stand alone. I like how the story started and loved the first encounter Camille had with Gavin. It was in Paris, while she was escaping her past and trying to decide what she wants for her future. After that they did not meet for almost two years and Camille all but forgot about the mysterious stranger.

Now, once again she finds herself in a bind. All her efforts to protect herself seem futile, then out of the blue she once again ran into Gavin and a story started. It is full of twists and turns that will keep you on your toes and the ending was so unexpected that I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

It turned out that Gavin is a vampire, not only that her ex-boyfriend was one too. And now her life might be in danger because of her association with the vampires. Gavin is adamant that he can overcome all the obstacles in their path and defeat vampire queen to restore their freedom. Camille is also not the one to stay behind and hence both end up running away on an adventure that might end in their death or worse...

the one thing I loved about this book was the way it combined contemporary and paranormal aspects of the plot. Everything felt very realistic and that makes it a best fantasy I've read in a while. It was hard to put down once i started reading, definitely recommended.

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford– Thanks to her rare blood type, Aurora’s forced to hunt vampires in Alaska. Now Aurora’s only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire.
Another amazing vampire story, just as fresh in its plot as book one in this bundle of five paranormal books. Again it is book one in a series. Aurora is a normal teen until she had an accident and her life changed for good. She was rescued by special agents and now she is a vampire hunter, whether she likes it or not. Her life's mission is to kill these demonic creatures. She is taught how to and a mentor is assigned to her. Dante is a vampire hunter too and he has to teach Aurora all there is to learn about killing vampires.

This doesn't mean that she can avoid her problems at school. Although, in light of new reality school doesn't seem all that important to her. Fane however is another issue entirely. She is attracted to him. He is mysterious and dark. They team up in gym class and then started going out. Things doesn't end very well for them but at least they tried.

The ending of this book was really epic. I loved it and can't wait to read the next book.

Darkness of Light by Stacey Marie Brown – Ember has never fit in. After she lands herself in a facility for troubled teens, she meets the darkly mysterious and hot as hell, Eli Dragen who is keeping secrets that can’t stay hidden much longer.

This was an awesome book about supernatural beings. From the beginning till end it kept me enthralled. It was full of mystery and suspense. All the time I kept wondering what will happen next. So far in this bundle I loved Darkness of Light the most, although above two books were not bad at all either.

Ember has always been treated as a freak. Unique colour of her eyes made it impossible for her to live a normal life. Not only that, she also has this ability to end up in bad situations. After she found her mother'd dead body (or what was left of it) she was never the same again. Therapists couldn't help her either so it was up to her to present as normal a front a possible, for her step-father's sake.

After a particularly bad incident at school she was sent to a special school for troubled teens. There she met Dragen brothers and things changed for worst.  Eli Dragen is both dangerous and mysterious, a lethal combination no girl can resist. He is also attracted to Ember although he tries his best not to. He seemed to know things Ember doesn't and no matter how hard she tries he never let her get close enough to find out the truth.

The ending of this book will let you intrigued and you will want to read the rest of the books in this series as well. So far I have found three awesome series to follow thanks to this bundle edition.

Flight by Alyssa Rose Ivy – A summer in New Orleans leads to a chance encounter with the infuriating yet alluring Levi. Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

This is also a 5-star read. More towards the romantic side and less action but still just as good as other books in this bundle. The ending was epic and you will definitely love it if you liked mysterious heroes and stubborn heroines. ;)

Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand – Five months after Whisper is released from the Skye View Wellness Center she stumbles upon an unconscious boy at a bonfire party who holds the key to breaking her curse.

I think this one is by far the best book in Fated bundle. I loved it from the beginning till end. Its also the only complete book. The story was engaging and all the characters lovable.

P.S.  I gave Fated 5-stars on goodreads. Really enjoyed reading all five books :) So glad that I could get an ARC.
