Vampyre Kisses and Werewolf Descent Book Review and Giveaway

Good afternoon everyone, 
I,ve got something good for you today.
It's been a while since I've had a book review for you.
But today I've got a a great treat for you all.
I've got a book series and 2 giveaways for you.

First of all I'll be reviewing  the first 2 books in the The Last Witch series by the author
Elisabeth Kolodziej:

 Book 1: Vampyre Kisses

First of all, I love all vampire stories so I don,t have to tell you that I did not have to get my arm pulled to review this book.  I got through this book in no time at all, and it's surprising since I am a very busy person.

Here is the product description
Vampyre Kisses is an enthralling story about a young woman named Faith, who seems content with her life, but deep down craves more excitement. Then a mysterious man named Trent enters her world and everything changes. Surprising to Faith, Trent is a green-eyed vampire from Ireland. She is even more amazed to find out that she is a witch, and the last of her kind. Faith learns that she is destined to restore her witch line and becomes more powerful as she gains confidence and knowledge, but danger lurks everywhere -- especially when unknown assailants steal the most important gems from the vampire master and werewolf royalty. Now surrounded by a world filled with mystifying vampires and werewolves, can Faith gain enough power to help her friends and rescue the stolen gems? "A welcome addition to the vampire/werewolf corpus. Building on traditional legends, Kolodziej creates a world both vast in its sweep and compelling in its details." Stephen Delaney -- Writer, Teacher & Editor Elizabeth J Kolodziej, a young fiction writer originally from Torrance California, is a smart and original thinker who has researched the origins of vampires, werewolves, and witches for many years. She writes her books from the knowledge she has gained while trying to be as original and inspiring as possible. Her books encompass both true folklore facts along with innovative ideas motivated by the great writers around her. This book is her first, but not her last, in a new series entitled Vampyre Kisses. 
Here's what I thought of the book:
This book is the first installment of The last witch series.  This is a fast read. It's about a mystical girl named Faith who thinks she doesn't fit in our world and is quite fed up with her daily routine, until she meets up with a vampire named Trent and they become up close and personal.  Then Faith meets an old friend of her fathers who sadly has passed away  a while ago, and she and Trent tell her about her special witch abilities, and how her father really died. Together with a new friend werewolf  they will work together and fight to get back the
vampire race's Blood Gem has been stolen along with the werewolf' race's Moon Gem. It is up to Faith and 
all her friends to find the gems and return them to their rightful owners. 
Faith and her friends overcome many obstacles including finding out that Faith's own mother is one of their biggest enemies and that Faith herself would have to fight her. The battle is short in the end but keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I was quite pleased with the first book and couldn't wait to start the second book. 

Book 2: Werewolf Descent

Product Description
Last witch in the world, Faith Scott, and her Irish vampire boyfriend Trent have just come back from fighting for their lives to recover the Vampiric Blood gem and Werewolf Moon gem. Thinking they could finally relax and work on the romance growing between them, they now meet a mysterious psychic vampire named Vincent who has his heart set on being with Faith. Soon bizarre killings of Zou Tai's werewolf pack begin, with rumors of an alchemist possessing the famed philosophers stone being the assailant; which, causes Faith to turn to Vincent for help in figuring out why the werewolves are being murdered. It isn't long before all those around them test Trent and Faith's love, along with their abilities, once again. It is all Trent can do to keep Faith safe by his side while both go up against a deadly alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue the werewolf prince; yet, after a deal with the God of Werewolves will Trent be able to save himself too? 
What I thought of this book:
We continue almost where we left off at the end of Vampyre Kisses.
Faith has bought a new house and Trent has moved in with her.  Morgan is now the master of the local vampires and Zou Tai is busy with his pack.  Life is back to normal, well, as normal as normal can get for Faith.  But somehow Zou Tai's pack member are being taken and murdered and Morgan offers to help. 
Then Vincent a psychic vampire appears and starts falling for Faith.  Trent hates it.
Then it's non stop action and adventure and we see Faith taking much more active role.
You will notice a lot more obstacles testing Faith and Trent's love in this 2nd book.
That's most probably because of Circe, the Goddess of withes and she wants more of them, and Trent sure can't help in that department. so ....
I loved the story line behind the werewolf murders.
I would also recommend to not let younger readers read this book as it can get quite steamy  since it's filled with passion and romance with Trent and Faith steamy love scenes.
Another thing I'd like to add, even though it's the 2nd in a series, it stands on it's own.
This book is a winner.
