Shadowhunters Part 5Shadowhunters TV Show

Fifth Episode: Moo Shu To Go

First Aired: February 9, 2016

Plot Summary

Tensions escalate between Alec and Clary as they don’t see eye to eye on the best way to hunt down Valentine. But when Jace and Isabelle are sent on an intel mission to the Seelies by Maryse Lightwood, Alec is put in charge of keeping Clary safe, much to both of their chagrin. With his hard-as-nails mother back in town and Clary’s rule-breaking tendencies, Alec finds himself struggling to stick to the Claves rules while keeping his promise to Jace. Meanwhile, the New York City werewolf pack begins their hunt for Clary and The Mortal Cup.

My take on this episode: Another episode of Shadowhunters has come and gone once again and I have to say once again I loved it!

We start off the episode where episode 4 left off of with Jace seeing with what was wrong with Clary and then Alec gets involved and it’s bad. Well not really Alec just doesn’t want to admit his feelings to Jace, oh his completely clueless like always, on Alec’s feelings of him. We also see a new character in the show. Alec and Isabelle’s mom Maryse Lightwood. She is so pretty and I can’t wait to see more of this character since she seems really good. Maryse sets her three children, yes Jace counts as a Lightwood, up on their missions that they need to go on. Well mostly two of them since she isn’t happy with Alec right now about Clary.

Jace and Isabelle go off to talk to the Seelies to find out that something went wrong when they were following orders from the Shadowhunter order. Who knows what is going to happen with the Seelies and the Shadowhunters now? Hopefully nothing to bad. Alec though starts training Clary but only to get distracted by Magnus, can anyone say MALEC FEELS, anyways Alec runs off to find Clary who is at the Brooklyn Art Academy being invisible. She then takes Alec to get Simon and the three of them get to Clary’s loft. They get the box that she wanted but then she gets kidnapped with Simon by werewolves. Simon is still showing signs of becoming a vampire, oops, and he just thinks that he is sick. Once Jace finds out he is very upset with Alec for letting that happen and it’s just bad for their parabita relationship.

Anyways the people that kidnap her are trying to get her to tell them where the cup is and she doesn’t know but she tells a lie so that she could see Simon again. But that doesn’t happen until she gets put into a cargo hold. She tries to get out with a rune but Luke gets to her and gets her out. He then puts her over his shoulder and tries to get her away when Jace and Alec get to them and big whole war between Luke and one of the people that were holding Clary.

By the end Luke is hurt and Jace tells Alec to take Isabelle back to the Institute while he takes Luke, Clary, and Simon to Magnus for Luke to get better. Let’s just say that Isabelle and Alec aren’t too thrilled with that at all.

Shadowhunters Part 4Shadowhunters TV Show

Fourth Episode: Raising Hell

First Aired: February 2, 2016

Plot Summary

After getting a clue about who may have wiped Clary’s memories, the crew hunts down the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. With all of the warlocks in hiding from Valentine, the team must lure Magnus out with something he can’t refuse – a killer party and something very valuable. But with emotions running high, more may come out of their meeting with Magnus than just the retrieval of Clary’s memories. Meanwhile, Simon doesn’t seem to be himself after his recent Downworlder encounter.

My take on this series: Another episode of Shadowhunters has come and gone once again and I loved it.

This episode starts off with Clary having a dream of her mom taking her to Magnus to take away her memories. Simon was there to comfort her however, she thought that it was Jace. Clary was able to tell Jace, Isabelle, and Alec about who she thought took away her memories. This whole episode much like the first two was pretty well paced. Alec is still jealous of Clary that is until he met Magnus and something might be going on there. This episode was such a good one and I can’t wait to see more.

I am looking forward to seeing more about Luke and other people. I am especially excited to see what will happen with Simon as he doesn’t know why he feels different since his kidnapping by the vampires. We also find out that someone might have a crush on Simon and tells him about it when they met up.

Clary will do anything to find her mom and the Mortal Cup but she has no clue where to look for it. After this episode she might have a chance on finding it…if everything goes the way that the Shadowhunters hope it well. Oh we also see Isabelle’s necklace and it’s fabulous I was wondering with when they were going to bring it up.

Shadowhunters Part 3Shadowhunters TV Show

Third Episode: Dead Man’s Party

First Aired: January 26, 2016

Summary: The Shadowhunters attempt to rescue Simon, who has been taken by vampires. Alec and Jace have a dispute over Clary. The Shadowhunters are able to track Simon’s whereabouts and rescue him from Camille Belcourt and her outfit, but Simon appears to be turning into a vampire.

My take on this series so far: In this episode we are introduced to at least two new species in the Shadowhunter world. We are introduced to the Vampires. Well okay so we technically met them at the very end of the last episode but we end up seeing more of them in this one. The second new species we met are the Seelie aka the Fairies. Well only one of them that is. Clary is all about saving Simon so she would do anything to get to him.

Also in this episode we see a whole lot more of Clary’s stubbornness, which is always so great to see from Katherine McNamara. Isabelle is still the same as always but she is a whole lot more. Jace is still full of himself. Alec is still trying to deny his feelings for Jace and it’s not working out very well as those two are having more arguments over Clary in this episode. Along with how they should go to the Clave to tell them about everything they know so that the Clave can tell them what to do. Simon though. Poor poor Simon he is not having a good time. Well sure he is technically still human but he is not going to be for too long which sucks. Simon is also still waiting for Clary to see that they belong together especially since neither of the two of them know that Simon is turning into a vampire.

We met the head vampire Camille Belcourt in this episode and I have got to say that I am loving the way that she looks and I am happy with the actress that they chose to play her. The second person we met is the Seelie. And I have got to say that I am impressed with who they chose for him as well. They chose two wonderful additions for this series and I can’t wait to see the rest of the cast members that they bring in for the different roles. I don’t want to spoil too much more from this episode but gosh it was so good and amazing.

Shadowhunters episode 2Shadowhunters TV Show
Second Episode: The Descent Into Hell Is Easy
First Aired: January 19, 2016

Summary: With the knowledge that Valentine is alive and on the hunt for The Mortal Cup, the Institute is on high alert. Not wasting any time Jace jumps into action and figures Clary’s memories are the key to finding Jocelyn and The Mortal Cup. Unfortunately, Clary’s memories were wiped leaving her without recollection of this other life that could help her and the team. With only one other option remaining, Jace, Isabelle and a very reluctant Alec to take Clary to the City of Bones to face the powerful Silent Brothers. Meanwhile, Luke continues his search for Clary, and Simon tries to come to terms with his best friend’s new life.

My take on this series so far: Another episode of Shadowhunters has come and gone once again but here is my review on it.

We take up with where the first episode let off with Clary being stuck between her two worlds. Her Shadowhunter world that she is just now coming to terms with and her human world that she lived in for most of her life. After that it just takes off once again and I am loving it. I like how they are keeping with the book but also putting their own spin on it. It’s so refreshing to see that especially since no one can really compare to what the books just give us. Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray is so awesome. She is most definitely bringing Clary to life and I love that she read the books while filming the series so that she bring Clary to life, in such a fabulous way. Everything about this series is awesome.

I feel bad for Clary at times throughout this episode. Granted she is eighteen but she is thrown into a world that she knows that she belongs in while not knowing if she is able to be in it so she puts on a brave face for everyone including herself. For anyone that likes the book series they will like this series. If you haven’t  watch it and give it a shot, even if you haven’t read the book series. My mom likes the TV series and she hasn’t read the books.

New York Night by Stephen Leather

Posted January 24, 2016 by karenbaron in Demons, Fiction, Mystery, Paranormal People, Review, Series, Supernatural, Thriller / 0 Comments

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

New York Night by Stephen LeatherNew York Night by Stephen Leather
Series: Jack Nightingale #7
Series Rating: five-stars
Published by Smashwords Edition on November 10th 2015
Genres: Crime, Fantasy, Fiction, Horror, Mystery, Paranormal
Format: Kindle
five-stars

Teenagers are being possessed and turning into sadistic murderers. Priests can’t help, nor can psychiatrists. So who is behind the demonic possessions? Jack Nightingale is called in to investigate, and finds his own soul is on the line.
Jack Nightingale appears in the full-length novels Nightfall, Midnight, Nightmare, Nightshade, Lastnight and San Francisco Night. He also appears in several short stories including Blood Bath, Cursed, Still Bleeding, I Know Who Did It, Tracks and My Name Is Lydia.

My take on this book: Wow this is the first book I read of the Jack Nightingale series and I must say that I was impressed by how well written New York Night by Stephen Leather. Once I got my hands on the eBook I was instantly hooked on it. Granted it took me a little bit longer than excepted to read this book but I didn’t mind it was a really good book.

I am giving this book five stars for a rating because it sucked me in and it was just an excellent read. I know, I know if it was such a good read why didn’t I finish it sooner is probably the question most of you are probably thinking. The reason for that is because sometimes real life takes over you for a little bit and that is what had indeed happened to me.

Jack Nightingale is a British supernatural private investigator that has a friend in the United States that wanted him to handle two cases in New York that had to do with the supernatural business well mostly Hell but yeah same thing. The reason this certain person contacted Jack about these two cases is because he couldn’t think of anyone he trusted better than Jack to keep an eye on the two cases and figure out with what is going on in New York and another state.

The evil agents from Hell kept jack on his toes. They twisted him all around New York staying a few steps ahead of him. Lilith was by far my favorite bad. As she kept a low profile, stayed in the shadows and kept the other bad guys in line. She has quite a mouth on her, and I like her snarky attitude.

I don’t want to spoil it for the people that haven’t read it since that is something that I don’t like anyone doing no matter who that person is. All I am going to say though is that this is an awesome read. However the previous six books sound just as amazing as this one. If anyone were to ask me about a good supernatural detective book I will most certainly tell them to read a Jack Nightingale book.

So, grab that hot chocolate, blanket and this Jack Nightingale mystery and you won’t have to go out in the snow.
