For her eighteenth birthday, Alice Bonham takes a vacation to Australia only to have her trip cut short by an unexpected murder.

While Alice tries to understand what happened, she regrets some of the choices she's made, especially the more permanent ones.

On top of that, the child vampire is running loose, and its attracting some very unwanted attention...


Amanda takes us outback to the Northern Territory,  Australia and back,  in  'Wisdom'. In hindsight, maybe not outback enough.
Daisy is exactly what Ezra predicted. Poor Bobby is Daisy's target. Everytime Daisy lined Bobby up,  I was laughing, maybe I shouldn't have been but it would have been funny to watch. Kinda a pretty little 'chucky doll' launching itself at Bobby. Mae isn't seeing straight and Alice has had enough of the little monster.

Leif is hanging around more and Olivia is training Alice to harness her strength and learn some skills. Alice is going all Nancy Drew and leaving Jack out of the picture. I love Alice's new sidekick. He has really grown on me, lol!!!

Jacks taste in car was rather cool. Amanda brings back all the memories with that one.

I can't help feeling when reading this series that Jack may be older in human years than Peter, but he acts younger, hence Lego, X-Box games etc. Jack loves Alice , he will fight for her but is not a fighter. Jack doesn't show interest in training.  Peter and Jack's 18th birthday gifts to Alice were soo different. Jack is there for Alice whenever she needs him which is getting less and less as her strength supercedes his,  making her less a target and more a badass fighter. Alice's character grows , Jacks doesn't in their relationship. Peter , I have a soft spot for him as he too easily would give his life up for Alice he still feels some connection that he can't ignore even though the bond has broken. Alice will do whatever she can to save both Peter and Jack when they need it but can only choose one lover. I can't help feeling Peter should be 'the one'. He is soo raw and honest with his feelings towards Alice.

'Wisdom'  has action, stolen kisses, smexi moments, fight scenes, boundaries are pushed with trust, sad moments, funny moments and times where you will just go OMG!!! Lots of storyline is packed into these pages. Amanda never skips a beat with her storytelling.


"Yeah." Jack's smile grew broader.
"Does it come with a flux capacitator? " Milo asked.
"No." Jack looked at him like he was an idiot.

"You're gonna wear a cape?" Violet laughed, raising an eyebrow. "Oh yeah. Combat training is so gonna work for you."
"I'll take it off to fight," Bobby said defensively. "I just wanna survey Gotham with my cape flapping in the wind."

"Wait. " Bobby pushed in between Violet and me to get closer to the glass. "Vigilantes? You mean like Batman?"
"What is with this kid and Batman!" Violet groaned.
"He's only the most awesome thing ever, " Bobby shot back, glaring at her.

"Oh my god!" Bobby pointed at him. "That dude is supposed to be a vampire hunter, and he's got on a fricking swatch! There is no way these guys are for real!"

"Wait, wait," Bobby interrupted, snapping his fingers. " I've heard that before. That's like what Blade is, right? Wesley Snipes was a vampire hunter, but he was like super strong and badass from being a half -breed." He glanced back at Milo. "You weren't like that when you were human, were you?"
"No , I got my ass kicked all the time," Milo grimaced at the memory of his human self.
"So how come they weren't all like Blade?"Bobby asked, turning back to Ezra.
"Because, it's a movie, Bobby," I said dryly.
