    1. I had to think pretty hard about this review because I wanted to make sure to put it just right I don t want anyone to think that this book was absolutely horrible, but I do want people to realize exactly how green this book really is I ll be blunt say that this book desperately needs to be re worked re written.The book s premise is an interesting enough one It doesn t break any of the common tropes of the UF genre, but then those tropes are popular for a reason They work they re entertaining I [...]

    2. I knew when I read the blurb that I d enjoy reading this book but NOTHING prepared me for the feelings of shell shock and amazement I felt the moment I finished it I texted my BFF and one of the first things I said was My gosh, how will I ever be able to write a review that could describe just how much I loved this book I still feel that way and so with a hopeful heart, I pray to Book Gods that somehow I can do this book justice.To say that I loved and enjoyed this book would be a gross understa [...]

    3. Review originally published at supernaturalsnarkTHE STORYThough she is named after saints, Jude Magdalyn s life has been anything but blessed The death of her parents resulted in life in an orphanage, and then life on the streets forced at times to sell her body for survival Now, she lives the life of a con artist, reading tarot cards for tourists wanting the authentic New Orleans experience.A reading with what she assumes is one such client yields highly atypical results as events take place an [...]

    4. This is the first book in the Jude Magdalyn series, it is a really great story, and I absolutely loved it and enjoyed every page The humor, wit and sarcasm is some fantastic writing and I truly enjoyed reading Shades of Gray L.M Pruitt is an excellent author, the character description are written extremely well you get to know everyone, the story flows so well that you have a hard time putting this book down Jude is a really great main character, when we meet her she is working as a fake tarot c [...]

    5. Warning Here there be vampires.Don t worry They don t sparkle.I m a huge fan of urban fantasy and paranormal romance and I think this is a great blend of both I also love that it s set in New Orleans and the author gives you a real sense of BEING there, feeling the streets,living with the people, and I love that.I m not going to reiterate what the novel is about You can read that in the book blurb What I am going to say is that while the story is full of magic and mystery, the characters and the [...]

    6. This is only a personal opinionI think LM Pruitt has talent, is a good writer with a nice sense for suspense and characterization Yet I hated her book EDITOR desperately needed here And I do mean a good editor, who kicks his hers authors nether parts, makes them forgo clich s and mend the big gaping holes in their plots view spoiler I mean the heroine s BEST AND ONLY FRIEND dies And is never talked about, no worries about the dead girl s mother finding out, no funeral Only the bad guy mentions h [...]

    7. Shades of Gray by Lois Pruitt is a phenomenal book that follows a young woman by the name of Jude Magdalyn through her new and exciting life This book is not the typical vampire supernatural book It is packed full of magic and includes vampires as part of the scene rather than the primary focus of the book I loved this book It is unique and has a great flow to the dialogue I think Jude is a great main character Jude has strength that she aquired while on the streets but at the same time you feel [...]

    8. I JUST wrote the review for Hole in the Wall which was a short story of the events that occurred before this book I finished reading it earlier today I really enjoyed it which is what made me run out and get this book This totally seems like a different story written by a different author with a different writing style The development seems rushed The characters changed drastically from the short story to this story and they are supposed to be continuous.Jude seemed like a cool chick who suddenl [...]

    9. I really wanted to like this book, but it was so choppy I didn t understand the flow of the book As in the main character Jude has a relationship with Theo They had a 4 minute conversation that didn t feel like much of anything to me, but some how the main character thought they had some major flirting I was lost Additional transition were not complete One chapter ending with Jude stating you had great archery skills and in the next chapter first sentence she had talk a group of children how to [...]

    10. Wow This was truly a phenomenal read with an amazing cast of characters, written by an equally amazing author, L.M Pruitt This urban fantasy gem features Jude Magdalyn how cool is that name , who has been on her own since leaving the Catholic orphanage she grew up in She doesn t trust easily, only a few select friends, and she gets by running tarot card scams That all changes in one single night and she realizes that nothing will ever be the same There are SO many things that I LOVED about this [...]

    11. I recommend this book for the romantic content not to sappy or vulgar , some hardcore fighting good vs evil and for the excellent story telling I just loved it This book introduces us to Jude, a street hustler, who had no idea of who her family was One day, a man named Williams appears, and thus begins the process of Jude learning about herself and her destiny We learn about her connection to a group of people known as the convenant This group of protectors are lead by a woman named Gillian, who [...]

    12. This books was so great to read It was so entertaining from the first page to the last, I felt like I was on a roller coaster reading it not knowing what the next turn and twist would bring Her characters are so endearing you have to love them, the authors brings out those feelings by how well she has developed them, you like love the good guys and truly despise the villains It is almost a gift when an author can bring these emotions out in a reader Another reviewer said she wanted certain chara [...]

    13. Shades of Gray is, I m hoping,the first of many books about Jude Magdalyn, a fake tarot card reader and real Prophecy to the Covenant I loved the writing style of this book, the dialouge is witty and Jude is a real wise acre This book is pack full of action, humor, sadness, and has a pretty good little mystery going on Set in New Orleans you get the southern feel and yet it doessn t push it too far There are vampires, magic, good guys, bad guys, good guys who are sometimes bad guys, battles of g [...]

    14. Really feels like your in the city great descriptions Good Plow, easy to read follow To Heidi, may I syggect that you re read some parts Jude distinctly says that archery practice is over a period of days, so when she s talking to the archors it makes sense why they re skilled Characters are easy to fall in love with Gillion hits the prefect pitch between patient and impatient mentor Williams is tortured and brooding, but you never forget he s dangerous and Hart you love to hate him Heard the ne [...]

    15. This book was such an unexpected treat The writing, storyline, and characters were brilliant The dialogue was amazing.LOVE LOVE LOVE Jude s character She is strong, determined, damaged, and has one hell of a mouth on her Her bantering with the other characters is priceless.de me laugh out loud I look forward to reading the next book in the series Shades of Destiny , but unfortunately it is out of print at the moment.

    16. I was not that impressed with this book The plot and characters seemed flat I felt like things came too easy for the main character She wanted the people Hart captured for food free, and suddenly she could project herself there and they re free She slept with another man, but her boyfriend is very understanding and makes her into a victim Also the Shakespeare quoting part was just ridiculous.

    18. I really enjoyed this book even though it took me forever to read It wasn t a problem with the storyline which kept me interested or the characters Jude is such a sassy character which I love I do know know why I did not want to read, but this is a book that I would definitely recommend.

    19. I love this series Yes, I read the whole series all in one, because I could LOL I had been hearing things about this series, and I loved it all, so now, I just have to set the goal of writing individual reviews for each book But it s all good I have found that this is one of those series that I am so glad I got to read it all in one It s that cool This is a book that has something for all Humor, which was hilarious of course, some great sarcasm, though funny, stands on its own, mystery, because [...]

    21. Shades of Gray A Jude Magdalyn Novel has a very short prequel Hole in the Wall free on and also on Smashwordsthat introduces us to Jude before the events taking place in the full length book It is not however necessary to read it but if you do some of what Jude faces will make sense.Magic, mysteries, vampires, family dramas, sarcastic kick ass leading female character and romance fill the pages of this scintillating tale of intrigue and action penned by L.M Pruitt A very riveting page turning t [...]

    22. Shades of Gray had a great storyline, however the execution of the plot definitely needed some work.There were a number of editing mistakes where words were thrown in where they shouldn t have existed which caused me to pause during the flow of reading the book.Now to the book itself.There were issues that I had with Shades of Gray, especially with regards to having things in the book that just didn t need to be there or if they were to be there to be elaborated My issues are as follows Jude Th [...]

    23. Independent Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.Imagine going through life not knowing anything about your family, your past Imagine, if you will, being on the streets at 16 and selling yourself just to get by Imagine, then, all that being tipped on its head at the meeting of a vampire, Hart, who wants you dead and you know not why Jude has lead such a life, is now living such a life as rumours and legends that she grew up with turn out to be true The she is The Prophecy, The C [...]

    24. 3 3.5 starsWell, this book is going to be hard to review I didn t love it But let me explain.First things first let s divide it into categories.Cover Gorgeous, amazing and sexy Love the colors Writing Nice, fun and fresh Edition mmm I d say poor An editor is supposed to help the author, not only find grammar mistakes but also holes in the plot and all those things Here that was very needed Storyline Entertaining Actually I really liked the story It mixes magic and vampires in a very enjoyable wa [...]

    25. Did Not Finish.I like the general idea to this story, even if it was pretty much following the PNR UF recipe to the letter, but it felt rushed and really needs to be edited in greater detail Overall it all a little too lacking to hold my attention to the end.I found the writing in this very choppy There were scenes where characters seemed to up and disappear without mention of them leaving or explanation of what happened to them, others where characters make comment on things that the reader has [...]

    26. Shades of Grey is the first installment in the Jude Magdalyn series by LM Pruitt Words can t describe how brilliant this book was There was action, romance, a bit of smut and heartbreak the makings of an awesome story.Jude Magdalyn Henries is just your average girl trying to make a living in the streets of New Orleans, be it hustling or setting up a scam, it puts food on the table and pays the bills But all that changes after a scam goes wrong and Jude is on the run when she stumbles head first [...]

    27. 4.5 of 5 stars Review on blog at booksavvybabeI really, really enjoyed Shades of Grey Jude Magdalyn is a tough, independent heroine who adapts well to new situations She is smart, quick, and in no way a damsel in distress well, at least most of the time Jude had a tough upbringing, as an orphan raised by nuns, and forced to live on the streets for awhile However, Jude was not completely hardened by her background, she is still capable of caring for other people, and she is fiercely loyal Judy is [...]

    28. Not many books can hook a person from the start But this one did it to me There was no beating around the bush in any given situation or any softening to cover the blows in here It s all straight and to the point exciting, humorous, adventurous, titillating, emotional and fun A great read for those paranormal readers that like a story with edge, excitement and a few twists.Jude is one tough chick that takes nothing from no one be it vampire, witch or human She has amazing instincts that I believ [...]

    29. I found the prequel to this book for free on and couldn t pass up the opportunity to get a taste of the series, and the authors writing style for free before investing my time and money into a new author and series Now the free book L.M Pruitt offers as a look into Jude s life before basically all hell breaks loose is definitely than I bargained for, not only does it have a sassy kick ass leading lady, and interesting plot and story line, but I also liked the authors writing style When I finis [...]
