Elle Cross: Grit The Remnant Gods #1



Voluntarily chose to write an honest review forBook one in the brand new Remnant Gods series This book is just amazing We got some incredible world building along with characters that we can ovehate all placed into a world full of magic Vesper ends up wrapped up in a mess not of her making and as an empath the emotions are debilitating Add in her guys as she meets them and maybe she will get some relief All I know is that I was totally sucked into the story and could not put it down I even whimpered when I reached the História do Rei Transparente last page because I did not want it to end If you enjoy PNR RH books then you have to go buy this Ioved every single minute of it so I give it 55 stars InterestingI finally went back and finished this off It was definitely interesting and I really Best Mechanic Ever like Gesler and Deimos The other supporting characters are pretty cool tooLooksike Gesler just may have something to answer for Hi my name is Gwen and I am a pre book orderholic it has been 1 day 10 hrs and 15 min since I Dinosaur Dinners last pre ordered a book But damn it s addictive but in my case it sike Russian roulette that usually involves me shooting myself in the foot often than not yet I keep on tryingBut for once I ve got a good onebut of course me being me I seem to have read these books in the wrong order and should have started with So Dark the Night The Brightling Court 1 So Dark the Night for a better feel for the world building but which I am reading nowBut you know what I think this is the better of the two books with a much stronger Urban Fantasy In His Blood leaning my fav Also the world building was just great I justoved the Desert Kings (Deathlands, layers Elle created with the Shade and Fade which are edgy and dark As well as characters that are intense yetikeable and what attraction between Vesper and Deimos WOW It does have BDSM elements BLEH but not too in your face LOL and I hope it stays that way The mystery element was strong and with no obvious bad guys it made for a very enjoyable read Can t wait for the next book So Dark the Night is the only other book I ve had from Elle Cross but I know I will always be reverently holding her books close to my heart 90% of my reads are for a great escape Therefore it s only An Officer and a Spy logical I goooking for reads that reflect me or my situation the Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, least Iook for characters I find interesting but don t relate much in real Ooko life 9% of my reads are for discoveringearning The Naked last 1% percent I reserve for readsike Grit the ones which make me feel Shadow Scale (Seraphina, like psychoanalyzing myself And nobodyikes being psychoanalyzed esp if it s by one s self But back to Grit I see too much of myself which contradicts the major objective of escaping in the first place I mean it sucks that I have to be such a sissy girl but I just can t help and bitch slap myself some hard Claim The Crown loving Enough of that personal weird monologue ish bit I come here to review the magnificent read that is GRIT The buildup of the plot the settings the charactersare slow enough to be savored and relishedike refined dishes But at the same time the story delivers breath stopping action scenes I ve always been in awe of that satisfying balance For example I m slowly introduced to the politics between Remnant God tribes and Humans as if easing me to a complicated system Which is a very considerate thought on behalf of the author The story The feelings I m overcome with tumultuous emotions throughout the whole ride From Vesper and Corbin s journey to solve an unusual crime to the personal adventures Vesper has had the sensual dreams she keeps forgetting afterI may need a palate cleanser from being intoxicated by such powerful words I mean what s with them being craftily arranged to affect even the coldest of hearts And yes I m referring to my unfeeling black heart It feels Nerds like I have experienced every vivid detail myself JustSUPERB Moving on to our characters Grit is full of charismatic real and well rounded characters As if the main ones aren t the only ones deserving of developed personalities But for the sake of everybody I m only going to fangirl hardcore about Vesper Deimos and Corbin Selfless Strong Stunning All of those are our heroine Vesper and freaking 1 Selfless Whenever people characterize selflessness they often think of its heroic aspects But Elle and Vesper are able to reveal the self deprecating side of the same coin The thing about people with the default of selflessness of a saint is that every time they do things most consider as noble sacrifices they also condemn themselves to a world of hurtMy only anchor was the vast frozen nothing inside of me A no man sand A null that I d been patiently feeding and growing At its center was an ice fortress my mental construct that hid the heart of my powerFor fuck s sake the woman s an empath on top of that At first she s only close with Corbin and Megan Semi close with Jack Then In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, later on with Deimos Can count heroved ones in one hand and all that jazz But the engths she will go to for them Indefinite For all her talk about being detached and distant Vesper feels deeply and bleeds profusely2 Strong The infamous preconceived notion with strong people is that apparent. Sual homicide When they discover that the victim was under the protection of the Remnant Gods the investigation brings Vesper under the attention of Deimos the new Power Broker of Manhattan As she has been hiding from stalkers being under anyone'.

Ly they don t break That they must be invincible when in fact they re actually not And I think that s what makes Vesper strong the self acknowledgement of weaknesses and flaws3 Stunning Need I say I just I really ove herDeimos This herohe s everything to me Can I have a Deimos in my On Such a Full Sea life please No but really I often don t pay that much importance to heroes in my reads Ateast no than the heroines Plus I often feel Hello, Hippo!

I started Grit uite The Works of Saint Augustine late at night after I d finished reading a book by another author I thought the other book was good almost 5 stars but then I started Grit and it reminded me what a true 5 star read isCross s writing style is smooth and flawless her world building and character development is phenomenal All the different ability s and Remnant Gods politics could of easily been confusing but Cross delivers it in a way that not only makes sense but is truly captivatingVesper Tallinn is a powerful individual who can do extraordinary things but she has a softer vulnerable side This is the second book I ve readately where the heroine doesn t need rescuing and yet neither is she all powerful and kickass it is a refreshing change and makes it easier to relate to the character Vesper s colleagues and friends are a wonderful group of varying individuals these side characters are interesting and Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone likeable and offer insight into Vesper sife Our hottie Deimos may be a true alpha but he treats Vesper with both adoration and respect and hot damn he s sexyThis is the second book I ve read by Cross the first is still waiting for me to finish reading it and I could not put it down Part of the reason might of been because it felt ike a true urban fantasy than paranormal or reverse harem as I know Cross s other books are RH it s worthwhile to note that so far Grit is not a RH although I ve heard rumours regarding book two and the writing felt mature all the characters are already grown which is definitely something I appreciate Just ike her other books we definitely see some action both in regards to mystery and fights as well as in the bedroom andor kitchen tableGrit has gone straight into my favourites folder which is reserved for those books that surpass 5 stars for me Highly recommend This was pretty good but not without issues I found Vesper and her abilities to be uniue and interesting The mystery and investigations really kept me attention Corbin her best friend was just as intriguing and I Supper Club loved how the contrast between the two was shown instead of told Deimos was the typical alpha male but he surprised me a couple of time when it came to reactions And Jack God my heart hurts I picked this up because it came up on a RH group but after reading it I m not so sure now which is sort of a bummer because I wanted her to choose Jack I did knock a star off of this because there were many things that were unclear I could tell a great deal of work went into Vesper but there were areas of world building that came up short causing confusion which bugged me through theast 25% of the story view spoilerFor instance do humans have magic We know the remnant gods do as well as their children who are half human There was the business with the gabbing shadows the ones that took Jack and the ones that attempted to kidnap Vesper If humans were behind the murders then how did they create pockets where the gods couldn t find them and how did they become the shadows Plus there was the uncharacteristic business with Corbin Vesper s best friend freezes her out and basically ies to her and there is never really any reason why Because it wasn t fleshed out or even resolved adeuately explained and dealt with so it feels ike Corbin refusing to give info to Vesper was a plot devise and nothing else which is annoying Vesper s secret project about Corbin s past that she thought was tied to their current case was Professional Capital left just hanging and didn t go anywhere The capture of chaos ring went too uickly and I cannot believe that Corbin didn t see to Vesper who was cut up and covered in blood when the police arrived They share aook OMG I think that confused then pissed me off the most The Corbin from the 1st half of the book who cared about Vesper was gone Since the chaos ring was gathered there really wasn t a reason given for what was going on only hinted that it was wide spread The Seven Dwarfs Find a House (Disney Classic) lack of depth shows here than anywhere else and it was an unsatisfying triumphant over the bad guys The other thing that bugged me was Vesper sack of emotion or thoughts to new discoveries about herself She had basically none and she didn t even mull over what she Berlioz, Vol. 2 learned That was frustrating for me because it drew the character away from me instead of drawing me closer And seriously how do remnant gods become orphans You would think they would be doing something to remedy that And theast thing that really irked me since she spent so much time The Middle Sin (Cleo North looking for Jack she doesn t go and see him when all is said and done She doesn t even think about him I mean WTF hide spoiler An amazing concept great characters fantastic world building I can t wait for Read using Kindle Unlimited Grit The Remnant Gods 1 I absolutelyoved this book It sexy stylish full of suspense It has three great female characters an excellent enigmatic male I do wish the whole Orphanage background was explored I know it probably will be in future books but it The Mediterranean Millionaires Mistress left me feelingike I had huge gaps in my knowledge This was NOT enough to stop me devouring this wonderful read however Debbie 1970 UK I received a free copy of this book which Behind veils that hide them from mortal eyes the Remnant Gods walk among mortals in this Urban Fantasy set in an alternate NYC Vesper Tallinn is an empath and artist who has been recruited by her best
