Chaos Born by Rebekah Turner
Chronicles of the Applecross # 1
Chaos Born is the first installment in the Chronicles from the Applecross Series by Rebekah Turner.
This first book is a lot to take in. I love the paranormal/fantasy genre and had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately my hopes plummeted with this book. I did like the plot and the idea for this series. I also liked the story line.
Where I had the problem was this intricate world that Ms. Turner has woven. There is too many characters and sub characters, realms and supernatural character for me to completely dive into this one.
Trying to keep up with all the species was more work than it was enjoyable.
I will try the second book in this series to make sure I have a good grasp on the author. I never give a mediocre review and stop reading that author. I am always willing to give a writer a second shot.
Lora Blackgoat, smuggler and mercenary, has been lying low after a job gone bad made her a laughing stock in the industry. When a childhood friend turns to her for help, Lora leaps to restore her reputation and starts hunting a killer who is stalking the gas-lit streets.
She never expects that her path will lead her to the Order of Guides, a sadistic militant religious organisation - or to Roman, a deadly and dangerously attractive half-angel warrior who also hunts the killer.
When Lora discovers that the killer has broken fundamental laws of magic to enter the city, she also uncovers a conspiracy that leads back into her own dark past.

Chronicles from the Applecross # 2
Chaos Bound is the second installment in the Chronicles from the Applecross series by Rebekah Turner.
Aside from the first book in this series, the series has taken a turn for the better. I guess it just took me to understand this world that Ms. Turner has created, but now that I am getting used to the writing style and supernatural characters I dove right into this book.
The plot is unique and the characters are fierce. This series is one to look out for!
Also, I really like the cover on this book.
Lora Blackgoat — mercenary and smuggler — has only just recovered from the last threat on her life and hasn’t even begun to sort out the mess of having both a nephilim warrior and a reborn hellspawn as potential lovers. Work should be a refuge, but a job finding missing persons puts her in the crosshairs of a violent gang and a merchant with a taste for blood sport.
Reluctantly, Lora turns to the two men in her life for help. Roman — the nephilim — professes to be her soul mate and turns to her when he feels the darkness of nephilim madness descending. But though Lora is drawn to Roman, it is Seth, ex-lover and reborn hellspawn, who Lora must ultimately ask to protect those she loves. Can she trust Seth to save Roman and her adoptive family, or will this be a fatal mistake?
