Recommended Read: Life Cycle by Zoe Winters

Continuing on with the Paranormal Romance theme…

If you like paranormal romance and you haven’t heard of Zoe Winters,
well….you need to discover her. Like yesterday. Her paranormal
characters are true to their natures rather than being forced to adhere
to regular human mores and values, and I find that refreshing even when
it’s disturbing. Life Cycles is a continuation of her
Preternaturals series, and while you can read it as a stand alone,
you’re just going to want to go buy the rest of them after you finish to
read about many of the other characters featured as well. So while the
recommended read this week is Life Cycles, I’m *really* telling
you to go get this whole series of books. Because once you get pulled
into this “other world”, you won’t want to leave.

I love Life Cycles specifically for it’s exploration of
the idea of immortality. What would it be like to live forever? Is
anyone truly immortal? What’s the true price, and are we *really* able
to pay it? All of these come up in this story of a witch and a demon who
are ancient beings, tired, and lonely in a way no one else could ever
understand. It’s heart-wrenching in spots, as all of Zoe’s books are,
but it is a romance after all, and the pain and agony just makes the
ending that much sweeter and more deserved.

It’s an awesome book, and a really fabulous series. Even if you
don’t read paranormals, I’d urge you to give these books a try. You’ll
be glad you did.

I’m not a
professional reviewer, I don’t accept offerings direct from writers or
publishing houses (so don’t email asking me to review your book – that’s an
excellent way to ensure I never read it), and there’s a very good chance
I know the authors of over half the books I’ll recommend, so my opinion
is likely biased on any given day. This is just me telling you about a
great book I recently read. Nothing more, nothing less.
