Starling is trying her best to get rid of the spirits who haunt her. She is a young nymph who has lost her mother and has to find 3 books that will help her send the ghost away. However to get the books she has to go to a dangerous area with shifters who are out to capture her. the same kind of shifters who killed her mother. She isn't alone as Jasper has followed her to be her bodyguard. Beside the ghost, shifters a body guard she has feelings for she also has a voodoo queen to deal with. Starling doesn't ask for help and wants to do this on her own. She is very stubborn. She has a great talent but she lets the spirits following her bother her. I liked her as she isn't one to stand by waiting for someone to save her. Jasper is a very amazing guy. I liked him right away. He cares for Starling but tries to hide it. He has a job to do and he doesn't plan to fail at it. He will do anything to protect Starling. I enjoyed many parts of this book. I love Starling and Jasper together. Starling even friends a child who is a ghost and while at first I was on the fence on liking her or not that changed my mind. The idea of all the different shifters, plus mythology and ghost plus more had this book packed full of fascinating characters. At first I was a little confused on what was going on but the more I read the more I got what was going on. There is plenty of action and danger. There is also love in this book as well. I would tell anyone who is a paranormal fan looking for a different type of book to try this one.

Chick-lit, mystery with lots of paranormal romance. Starling Jackson a young nymph/demi-god has a lot more than seduction to offer. Starling has the possibility of living an immortal life but an immortal life with spirits hunting you is not what one may wish to live with. She may have an ace up her sleeve.  Her mother's friend left her something very, very valuable.  She needs to get to it before she goes mad or fall in love. Something her friend, confidant, and bodyguard tries to help her do.  But there is one thing their growing attraction that may derail their attempts.  Winters' provides another Nymph romance.  I am eagerly awaiting another installment in this series. Savannah Sacrifice may be the better of the two that I have read thus far.  I do look forward to reading the others in this series. Net Galley ARC read.

A highly original, sensual, and suspenseful paranormal romance I really love Danica Winters’ paranormal Nymph Series, that features demigoddess, shapeshifting nymphs, who are cursed by Zeus that if ever they fall in love, the object of that love will die. Oh, nymphs also have the power to seduce at will that means that they’re pretty much out of luck on the falling in love front (unless they want to be serial killers). Rather a bit of dilemma for these beautiful women, right? Oh, did you note the fact that they’re demigoddesses? Yes, in addition they’re pretty much immortal and live very long, loveless lives. Oh, and one other thing, since demigods know the score, that falling in love with a nymph causes death, they try to avoid hooking up with them. This leads to a lack of nymph progeny, because it seems that only demigods and demigoddesses together can procreate successfully. Winters’ previous three titles in this series - The Nymph's Labyrinth (Book 1), Montana Mustangs: Book 2 of the Nymph Series (Crimson Romance), and Winter Swans (Book 3) - are really fabulous reads that combine the paranormal with some very sensual romance and great suspense. I’d really advise you to read the series as each detail that Winters provides in these books helps give added dimension to the world of the Sisterhood of Nymphs she’s created. And it’s a fun and fascinating world! Savannah Sacrifice, the fourth book in the series, picks up where book three left off. Starling Jackson, a very rare, young swan shifting nymph, is traveling to Savannah in order to find a set of books her ghosts tell her they have to have. Yes, in addition to being one of the very few to be born of a nymph and a demigod in recent history, her special talent is that of being a medium. Her struggle with the cacophony of ghostly voices led to her the murder of her mother in book one as she searched for a drub to aid her. If you’ve read book three, Winter Swans, probably like me you've been waiting anxiously for Starling’s story. Well wait no longer and pick up Savannah Sacrifice to find out what happens in her search for peace. Oh, I have to mention that Jasper Gray also returns to help in her search and serve as her bodyguard once again. Jasper and Starling definitely seemed to have the possibility of a little something developing between the two of them in Winter Swans , so it’s great to see what will happen when they’re thrown together again. Will Starling find a way to coexist with her voices without medicating herself to death? Will Jasper be able to protect her from both himself and their enemies? Will a Nymph be able to once again overcome Zeus’ curse and find true love? I recommend that you pick up Savannah Sacrifice to find out the answers to these questions and for a fabulously fun and highly original paranormal read. Winters mixes up the wonderful Southern atmosphere of Savannah with a bit of voodoo and witchcraft, a few ghostly spirits, some mortal enemies to the Sisterhood of Nymphs, and a whole lot of nail-biting action for a fabulous four-and-a-half-star read. Four and a half stars

Starling Jackson has left Vegas without a word to her father Chance or her stepmother Harper.  She is determined to find the Books of Shadows that will allow her to handle the spirits that keep invaded her mind.  The medicine that she was taking is beginning to lose its effect and if she doesn't find a way to deal with the spirits she will surely die or go insane.  What Starling doesn't know is that Jasper Gray, her bodyguard is not far behind her.  He will do anything he can to keep her safe and protect her from the vulture-shifters that are after her and the medicine. Now in Savannah where she believes the books are she and Jasper have to stay one step in front of the vultures and try to keep the medicine safe while finding the books.  She is always being hounded by a spirit called Asclepius who keeps telling her she must find the books or die.  The spirits need her help but she has no idea what help she can be to them.  Can she learn to use her gift and help the spirits cross over or will she continue to fight what she is and depend on the GX 149 to keep her sane? Harper and Chance are married and Harper has started her own laboratory but it will not be fully functioning for a while.  She was able to make some GX 149 for Starling but it is certainly not enough.  The vulture-shifters are determined to find the secret behind the nymphs ability to bare children, if they can't then their species risks extinction.  When Jasper learns from the Sisterhood, the governing body for nymphs, that the headquarters for the vulture-shifters is in Savannah he knows that Starling is in more danger than he could have expected.   The search for the books brings Jasper and Starling to a cemetery where Jasper finds himself being possessed.  Believing the man possessing Jasper is just after revenge for the death of his wife and children she brings him to the Voodoo Queen, only she once again put trust in the wrong person.  He now has Jasper and Starling only Starling manages to escape leaving Jasper at the mercy of the vulture-shifters.  Her feelings for Jasper have grown every day and even though she knows that the curse Zeus put on the nymphs forbids her from falling in love or having Jasper fall in love with her for fear of his death she can't stop her heart from feeling what it does. Her determination to free Jasper and find the books puts her and Jasper right in the hands of their enemy with no help in sight.  Can they get away?  Can they give in to their love for each other?  Can they finally put a stop to the vulture-shifters?  And can they finally put an end to Zeus' curse?  A war is coming only who will win? Once again a book filled with romance, love, courage, good and evil, secrets, lies and betrayals.  Although each book can be read separately the books pick up where the last one left off and so reading from the beginning would be much more enjoyable.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!! ** Received the ebook as a gift for an honest review The cover is beautiful especially the eyes which I’m partial to :) I enjoyed this story, and it is full of mystery and action.  Starling is very unsure of herself, but she is growing in her confidence throughout the book.  Jasper and her adventure is comical at times, infuriating, and sad.  At the end, it had me on an emotional rollercoaster where crying was involved.  Definitely had me wondering where it was going a few times which is always nice when there are surprises :)  Danica’s writing is easy to read and to connect with the story and its characters.  I really like this series and can’t wait to see where it goes from here and what new nymphs we will meet and if the curse will ever be broken :) I recommend this series to shifter lovers who want something new and different from the usual.

I received a free ARC of this book from the author for my honest review. Savannah Sacrifice is the fourth book in the Nymph Series by Danica Winters. These books follow the lives of stunning, shape-shifting mythological nymphs with seductive feminine powers that drive men crazy. There’s just one small catch, a curse from the gods with severe consequences to any mortal who falls in love with one of these beautiful creatures.  These steamy, sensual novels are filled with mystery, suspense, and well written tension as the nymphs try to protect the men they love from their deadly secret. Starling Jackson, a sultry dark haired young woman introduced in Winter Swans, is carrying a burden most demi-gods have not had to bear, hearing ghosts’ voices compelling her to do their bidding. Despite efforts to quiet the voices, she finds herself on a journey from Vegas to find books left to her by a murdered nymph, only to find that she isn’t the only one searching for them. Despite this mission putting her life at risk, she doesn’t think she needs the help of an appointed bodyguard, Jasper. Starling’s stubborn, sassy, and brave but still vulnerable personality resulted in fun banter with many characters, including Devon and Jasper, and a realistic character development for this young lady just out of high school. This was my favorite book in the series. I was hooked and couldn’t put it down, reading it in one sitting. I enjoyed the surprise of discovering the relationship of the psychic, Jamie, to a familiar character from previous books. I was also pleasantly surprised by the imagery and realism generated from Starling’s visit to the Goddess Shop. The characters seemed to have more depth and the plot seemed much more suspenseful than previous books. I enjoyed the unpredictable turn of events that occurred several times throughout the book, keeping me in suspense.  I recommend this page-turner to anyone who likes steamy, sensual, romance novels in the paranormal or Greek Mythology genre.
