When your 1.5yo nephew comes to visit and stays over, forget about having any free time to sit down and draft a post. You can set him up with his toys but his attention span’s like 5 minutes so pretty soon, those sticky little hands come typing at the keys of my laptop lol.
Idk why he finds other stuff way more fun than his own toys. So that’s how my Saturday is going on so far – running after a 1.5yo bunny on a super-charged battery. Yep, it exhausts me just watching him.

Saturday Star: Devyl Bane
Book/Series: Deadman’s Cross series – Sherrilyn Kenyon
Synopsis: To catch evil, it takes evil. Enter Devyl Bane―an ancient dark warlord returned to the human realm as one of the most notorious pirates in the New World. A man of many secrets, Bane makes a pact with Thorn―an immortal charged with securing the worst creations the ancient gods ever released into our world. Those powers have been imprisoned for eons behind enchanted gates . . . gates that are beginning to buckle. At Thorn’s behest, Bane takes command of a crew of Deadmen and, together, they are humanity’s last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms. But things are never so simple. And one of Bane’s biggest problems is the ship they sail upon. For the Sea Witch isn’t just a vessel, she’s also a woman born of an ancient people he wronged and who in turn wronged him during a centuries long war between their two races―a woman who is also sister to their primary target. Now Marcelina, the Sea Witch, must choose. Either she remains loyal to her evil sister and almost extinct race against Bane and his cause, and watches humanity fall, or she puts faith in an enemy who has already betrayed her. Her people over the totality of humanity―let’s hope Bane can sway her favor.
Synopsis: The Deadmen are back… But so are the demons who have broken free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind’s destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn…and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own. Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine’s hands. He expects no mercy or rescue. Yet Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it’s her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation. To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn’t seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron’s resolve.
Devyl “Duel” Bane, the Captain of a crew of Deadmen, was in one word, captivating. I absolutely loved him from the moment his character was introduced. And as I got to know more about his past and what made him tick, he grabbed hold of my heart and just wouldn’t let go.
He was a warlord back when he was alive and he did things that he wasn’t proud of. But the world isn’t just black and white. It’s shades of gray in between. And his feelings for Mara were so heartbreaking because she seemed to hate him without giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Marcelina “Mara” with her morals and skewered view of the world and her people was kind of annoying at first. I hated how she didn’t seem to see Devyl, the real him and not the monster she thought he was. It’s hard when people don’t see your truth and only see what they want to. No matter what you tell them, no proof will ever be enough.
However, Mara redeemed herself and turned out to be a perfect fit for Devyl. I love that Devyl finally got some hint of happiness, which he deserved after everything he’d gone through.
