Original Cover and Summary

My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound…
Raine is a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves. With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, she can usually take care of herself. But when her friend Quentin, a not-quite-reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necromancer, Raine finds herself wrapped up in more trouble than she cares for. She likes attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting her down is not her idea of a good time. The amulet they’re after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when Raine takes possession of the item, it takes possession of her.
Now her moderate powers are increasing beyond anything she could imagine—but is the resumé enhancement worth her soul?

Feel free to tell me what you think and don't forget to enter if you like to re-create covers!!! (^_^)

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

           Frannie Cavanaugh has always been a bit of a loner. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance, even her closest friends. That is, until Luc Cain enrolls in her school. He's hot, sarcastic, and dangerous—and Frannie can't seem to stay away.
          What she doesn't know is that Luc is on a mission. Because Frannie isn't exactly ordinary. She possesses a skill so unique that the king of Hell himself has taken notice, and he's sent Luc to claim Frannie's soul. It should be easy: All he has to do is get her to sin, and Luc is as tempting as they come.
Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and he's just started making progress when the angel Gabriel shows up. Gabe will do anything to keep Luc from getting what he came for, and his angelic charm might just be enough to keep Frannie on the right path.
          It isn't long before Luc and Gabe find themselves fighting for more than just Frannie's soul. But if Luc fails to win her over, there will be Hell to pay . . . for all of them.

          My general opinion: LOVED IT!!! I never thought I would like this book so much, but it happened. I was not a fan of the story tolled from the point of view of two characters. I really wanted to know more how Luc feels, because well he is a demon and that is a world with which you don’t interact too much. It was fun to enter in Luc’s world as he evolves from the demon he was into being madly in love with Frannie. I found “Personal Demons” full of emotions and maybe this was my favorite part, because I loved the accurate descriptions which were so nicely combined with the action part.
          My favorite character is obvious Luc, well yeah because he is a demon and because he knew exactly what he wanted and how he felt thru the entire story, no extra questions asked, maybe this is because his demon nature. He is the opposite of Frannie when we talk about feeling, because she is mostly unsecure. But I also wanted to know more about Gabe. I only found out that he is an angel, he has powers and he is in love with Frannie too.
          And now I’m waiting for the release of the Original Sin, part two of the story, which I hope it will take place in LA and maybe we will know more about Gabe (the angel).
