Featured Author Lyn C. Johanson ~ Till Death and Beyond

Image
Synopsis:

Till Death and Beyond is a sizzling tale of two souls bound by destiny in a cruel plot to separate them forever...

A COLD BEAUTY WHO KNOWS DEATH INTIMATELY...

Amira is the strongest witch on the face of the earth, with psychic abilities no others possess. And yet, she is but a slave to the whims of the gods. Forced to be born anew every time she fails in fulfilling an ancient prophecy, Amira is desperate to break the vicious cycle.

A TORMENTED WARRIOR WHO HAS LOST EVERYTHING...

Plagued by the memories and guilt over his family’s demise, Raven lives for the sole reason of restoring his younger brother. And kidnapping a witch is only the beginning—for he intends to right the wrongs of his past by any means necessary.

A DESTINY TO CHANGE THE WORLD...

While the gods might have planned for her to be captured, surrender is not something that comes easy to Amira. Yet one glance into her captor’s eyes, and she is swept away by emotions long ago denied to her. She decides to play along. For a while.

Despite the hatred Raven harbors for their kind, he is intrigued by the witch. One taste of her lips, and she becomes his obsession. Soon, he discovers that fighting against the passion they ignite in one another is futile. But as they strip each other’s secrets, a powerful force threatens to destroy them both.

For in this game of gods nothing is simple—the whole universe seems to conspire against them. And no matter how fiercely they fight, or what they are willing to endure to save each other ... the path they travel is paved with loss.

Will they survive the ultimate test, if even their determination—to fight till death—might not be enough?

Soul Stone Cover Reveal

Cover Reveal: Soul Stone (Escaping Fate #2)


OFFICIAL COVER REVEAL

Soul Stone (Escaping Fate #2)

By DelSheree Gladden


Release Date: February 26th, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Urban Fantasy
Length: 230 pages





Arrabella thought she was done with dreams, done with curses and the threat of death.

After surviving the ancient Aztec curse that had plagued her family for centuries, Arra was more than ready for her new life in the boring little town of Grainer, Maine. Boring and small sounded perfect...but she should have known better than to think it would last. 

The dream was odd, but Arra passed it off as nerves about starting school in Grainer. Her boyfriend, Tanner, was there to distract her…and get her into a little trouble as well. He pushes the dream out of her mind until they walk onto the school campus and see her. The lonely girl from Arra’s dream. 
Tanner’s reaction is fierce. He won’t risk losing Arra again and demands she stay away from Sibeal, but Arra can’t stop thinking about her haunted expression. What if she can help her? Arra can’t just walk away and let whatever curse has a hold of Sibeal claim her without trying to stop it. But what if Sibeal deserves the punishment? 

Arra’s battle to make the right choice about Sibeal only gets harder when she is forced to turn to the person in town she likes least for help. Sebastian Wallace is arrogant and irritating, but he’s seems to be the only one who can help her. As Arra tries to determine what the right choice is, she finds out saving Sibeal may be the least of her problems.



Get the first book in the series "Escaping Fate" FREE on Amazon February 19th-20th! 

Turning sixteen should mean driving, dating, and breaking curfew. It should never mean certain death. Arrabella's excitement for her upcoming birthday is swallowed up by not only her dismay at being moved to a tiny little town in the middle of nowhere, but by the terror of the dreams that assault her every night. 

Stalking her dreams, the raven haired beauty warns her, taunts her, as she is paraded toward her death. Desperate for answers, Arrabella turns to her grandfather, the only one willing to delve into her family's dark past. Warning her that once she takes the first step, there is no going back, Arrabella's grandfather begins to unwind their awful heritage. The only joy she finds in the week leading up to her death is meeting Tanner Wheeler, a young man she barely knows but is immediately drawn to. A story of selfish betrayal reaching back to an age of merciless gods and blood sacrifice, Arrabella's world is sent into a deadly spiral.

Review of Dwellers of Darkness by Author Stacey Marie Brown



Dwellers of Darkness

Rating: 5 stars

www.reviewoffantasy.com

Another funny, battle filled, mind boggling ride with Ember. Here we go.

This book was given to me by the Author for an honest review.

Okay so this is the third book in the Darkness Series and I have truly enjoyed Embers journey. I was a bit shocked when I realized at eighty percent through that this book was not the end, I have to wait for the fourth book Blood beyond Darkness and that may not be the end either, once Ember is involved.

Ember is back from the Outer world and three years have passed so when she is taken back to the Dark Dwellers Eli is beyond pissed. But this is where the fun starts.

I love Ember and Eli being in the same room, their sense of humour and cruel jabs had me laughing my head off and to throw two pixies into the mix, Cal and Simmon, my sides where sore. They were fiercely loyal but yet so funny and Eli as usual was great at drawing them out.

Kennedy is another of my favourite Characters, she comes across as been a bit fragile and gentle but in this book we see Kennedy grow into a strong young women, with a bit of a bite, she didn’t get that from Ember or anything. J

 New revelations about who Ember really is come to light, some of it was sad but it we see her reunited with her mum. I didn’t like her mum Lily at all, I actually really disliked her I felt she was selfish and the lies never stopped, she couldn’t just tell her daughter the truth but when Ember confronted her about this, she would make amber feel guilty for getting mad. I wanted to reach into the book and shake Lily while screaming “just tell her the truth it’s the least you could do” but o no, she continued to hide things from Ember, her excuse saying she was trying to protect her. “Yeah right”.  Arghhhh she really annoyed me. ( I can only hope she will redeem herself in book four, or else……)

This book was definitely more focused on Eli and Ember and their love (kind of) it’s no romance in a sense but an animalistic love. It took over most of the story but I wasn’t complaining. J
There were so many shocks, betrayals and lies that I was shaking my head at every one of them, I really don’t know how Ember stays sane, or how she can keep up with who she should trust.  I couldn’t and was shocked by the end of it, by the person who sold her out.

So now I am left waiting once again for the next instalment, to see if Ember can finally understand that keeping her mouth shut would really be for the best. (Nahh it’s too much fun, when she opens it) Can’t wait for Blood beyond Darkness.

Featured Author Nicoline Evans ~ Haemans

Image
Synopsis:
The former royal bloodline of Russia, thought to be lost forever, has resurfaced. The newly found descendants have been embraced and issued honorary titles. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, they bring with them a powerful addiction that will change the country forever. 

Through media manipulation, government deception, and the power of fame, Prince Mikhail and Princess Milena Romanov are able to spread their addictive lifestyle across the country. Fueled by silve cocaine and their own blood, this new populace is devoid of ethics. The addiction has transformed everyday citizens into freakishly strong and morally unhinged individuals. They are known as haemans, and they have taken over Russia. 

Sevrick Bykovsky is one of the few humans to have escaped. He now lives hidden within the forested outskirts of St. Petersburg. Forced to leave behind his fiancĂ©e, Arinadya Tarasova, in the grip of her newfound addiction, he has devoted his life to save her. Accompanied by a ragged band of freedom fighters, they struggle each day to survive. 

HAEMANS is a dystopian thriller that mixes gothic urban-fantasy with survivalist suspense. This debut novel from Nicoline Evans depicts a world where the villains rule and the heroes are scarce. It follows one man’s quest to save the woman he loves from a dangerous new society where self-destruction is deemed fashionable. HAEMANS is a story about survival and perseverance through the darkest times, and a reminder that we all can come undone.

About the Author:
Amy Sumida lives on an island in the Pacific Ocean where gods go to play. She sleeps in a fairy bed, high in the air, with two gravity-defying felines and upon waking, enjoys stabbing people with little needles, over and over, under the guise of making pretty pictures on their skin. She has no filter, making her honesty a little hard to take sometimes, but she has been fortunate enough to find friends who appreciate this... or at least tell her they do. She bellydances and paints pictures on her walls but is happiest with her nose stuck in a book, her mind in a different world than this one, filled with fantastical men who unfortunately don't exist in our mundane reality. Thank the gods for fantasy.
On a serious note, she's the author of several books, including the Godhunter series, Feeding the Lwas, The Magic of Fabric, and Enchantress. She's been writing since she was a little girl but first decided to pursue writing as a career when she gave her high school English teacher one of her books to look over and unbeknownst to her, that teacher passed her book around to all her friends. A month later she was accosted in the halls by a teacher she didn't know, begging her to write a sequel. She's been writing novels ever since.
She enjoys serious, kick-ass heroines in her literature. "Nothing is more attractive than a woman who goes up against overwhelming supernatural odds with a sense of humor," she says. "Who wouldn't want to be that woman? I want to be that woman. So that's who I write about, the woman I want to be." Her main characters are strong, witty women, who in the midst of trauma will crack a joke, or find the nerve to sass a villain even when they know it's not in their best interest. Add to that, strong male characters who aren't intimidated or emasculated by the main heroine's strength and you have a dynamic partnership. Amy's books aren't about women being more powerful than men or subjugating men in any way, they're about women who can be strong and yet allow their men to have their own strengths as well. More importantly, her heroines have humility and weaknesses that make them not only believable but easy to relate to.
She's also an artist and you can find her paintings for sale on Etsy.com, her favorite subjects are scenes inspired by Hawaii and her series of "Living Vodou Dolls". She loves the beautifully unusual.
