The Midnight Sea by Kat Ross | Fantasy Persians are awesome



They are the light against the darkness.The steel against the necromancy of the Druj.And they use demons to hunt demons….

Nazafareen lives for revenge. A girl of the isolated Four-Legs Clan, all she knows about the King’s elite Water Dogs is that they bind wicked creatures called daevas to protect the empire from the Undead. But when scouts arrive to recruit young people with the gift, she leaps at the chance to join their ranks. To hunt the monsters that killed her sister. Scarred by grief, she’s willing to pay any price, even if it requires linking with a daeva named Darius. Human in body, he’s possessed of a terrifying power, one that Nazafareen controls. But the golden cuffs that join them have an unwanted side effect. Each experiences the other’s emotions, and human and daeva start to grow dangerously close. As they pursue a deadly foe across the arid waste of the Great Salt Plain to the glittering capital of Persepolae, unearthing the secrets of Darius’s past along the way, Nazafareen is forced to question his slavery—and her own loyalty to the empire. But with an ancient evil stirring in the north, and a young conqueror sweeping in from the west, the fate of an entire civilization may be at stake…


My Review


This book was provided to me from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. I swear on my bookshelf that this has not affected my opinion of the book.


I have honestly never read anything like The Midnight Sea, which is quite impressive considering the amount of fantasy novels that I devour. The setting was completely new to me, and was the magic in the world.


To see the rest of my review and the many reasons that you should pick up The Midnight Sea and to enter the giveaway, see my original post.

Blog Tour Stop for Midnight Marked by Chloe Neill with Interview, Review and Two Giveaways


***There is still time left to enter***






Today’s post is for Chloe Neill’s Midnight Marked. We will have info about the book and author. A great interview with Chloe, my review of Midnight Marked. As well as TWO great giveaways. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaways.

Happy Reading :)



Midnight Marked


A vampire’s grudges don’t stay dead long… Merit is one of Chicago’s most skilled vampire warriors; these days, she doesn’t scare easily. But she and Master vampire Ethan have made a new and powerful enemy, and he won’t give up until he owns the Windy City.

With his last plan thwarted, he’s more determined than ever to watch Cadogan burn. Ethan has put the House’s vampires on high alert, but their enemy will stop at nothing, including pitting vampire against vampire…

In this deadly game of cat-and-mouse, the stakes are life or death—and winning might mean sacrificing everything…





Will be available March 1st 2016







 Do you have any plans to maybe someday write a spin-off series or book of the Chicagoland Vampires series? About the Central North American Pack or any other characters? 

I have all sorts of ideas for new books and series, but nothing has been formalized right now.


 Which book was the most challenging to write in the series ?

That's a good question! Probably Friday Night Bites. I didn't know how to write when I sat down at wrote Some Girls Bite -- I just did it. I was under contract for Friday Night Bites, so the writing had a completely different -- and more terrifying -- feel to it.


What does your typical writing day look like?

I've opted to keep my day job, so I work during the day and write (or market, plan, outline, etc.) for usually 2-3 hours most nights. I might spend 6-8 hours on those types of things on the weekend. During the week, I'm in pajamas with my laptop, usually while Adult Swim is on television. On the weekends, I try to get out of the house, so I'll usually camp out at Starbucks for a while.


Which if any of your personality traits did you write into you characters?

None, at least not on purpose. I try to write each character as their own fully-fledged person. That said, I enjoy sarcasm and witty banter, so my characters tend to like it, too.




I was really looking forward to this book. But also saddened that it is the second to the last one. The Series is coming to an end after the next book. I really will miss the series, with all it’s up and downs though out the books.

That being said things are heating up and the stakes are higher than ever. Also some things are starting to wind down the closer we get.

I really enjoyed this book A LOT. Merit is stronger than ever and it is hard to believe that it has been only a year since she became a vampire. She grown quite a bit and in this book more than ever she knows who and what she is. To herself, Ethan the house and her family and friends. 

Ethan almost surprises me in every book with his action, that doesn’t mean always good though.  He had some truly too stupid to live moments in this book. Some things, I couldn’t believe I reading the things he done other moments I could not have been prouder of him. He really was up and down in this book but, it all came from a good spot and that is all the matters in my book. 

With all the fighting and wars brewing in the supernatural world it was no surprise that the house and the NAC pack face each other. Things are very tense between the pack and the house. On top of some other supernatural groups.

The tension between Merit and the RG comes to a full blow. Things are finally getting resolved, I’m not saying whether in her favor or not. The same goes for Jonah and her and some things come to light about him .

A new magic is in this book and I really enjoyed it even if it was terrifying. Also a new, they meet a new person with a different power than they knew liked her but would have like to see more of her “power” made being useful to the case.

But maybe we see more of her and her power in the next book.

Page and the librarian are also a bigger part in this book, and we learn more about both of them.

Merit’s father also becoming a bigger part in the overall story and I really like where it is going, although, I’m really not a fan and trust him just yet.

Catcher and Malory were absolutely awesome in this book. I think it is great how far Malory has come after her “dark “period.

I’m not 100% sure of the ending of the book of course it is a cliffhanger …of sorts. But also it all seemed wrapped up and all the sudden BOOM and all hell breaks loose. Also it is very clear that it will be continued in the next book, which is the last and I’m curious to see how it ends. But also like to see the rest of the series and being wrapped up nicely and not seemed rushed or forced.

Over all it was a great book, with the usual snark , romance . Action and twist and turns on every page.

I rate it at 4 ½★


Some of my favorite quotes:

“Will Catcher throw a fit if he loses?” I asked. He was the generally grouchy type. I liked him very much.

“Catcher thrives on moderation and reasoned action.”

I snorted.  “And Ethan is humble and operates the house as democracy.”

“So we’re both full of shit.”


“I’m fine,” he said testily. “You stepped in front of me.”

“I will always step in front of you. You named me Sentinel.”

“In the larger scheme, not my wisest decision.”             


“ He gave you an alphapology.”

“What now?”

An alphapology. The apology made by the alpha male, which isn’t really an apology, but more a reason for insane behavior. Catcher does it all the damn time. Drives me up the wall.”


“The print media are generally positive. The Internet is the usual mix of praise, condescension, idiocy, and trolls.”  He glanced at his computer. “And, at my last check, four marriage proposals for my sentinel.”

My mood brightened, and I leaned toward the desk trying to see around to the screen. “Really? Any good candidates?”

“I don’t find that amusing.”

Blog Tour Stop for The Seduction of Alex Parker by Sandi Lynn with Excerpt


Today’s stop is for Sandi Lynn's The Seduction of Alex Parker . We will have info about the book and author, and a great excerpt from the book. Make sure to check everything out. Happy Reading :) 

About the Book




Never stay in one place too long. That was my motto. After the accident, at the age of eighteen, I left my home in California to travel the world, seeking out new and adventurous wonders like my twin sister and I had planned to do since we were kids. Eight years later, I was forced to return home, to the one place that held the most traumatic memories for me. My money was running out and my brother, Adam, refused to send me more until we sat down and had a talk about me settling down in one place. That was when I met billionaire Alex Parker — an arrogant, uptight control freak who thought I would actually listen to him. Boy, did he have another thing coming. My name is Emerson James and this is my story.

She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. But she was mouthy and defiant, just like her brother warned me she was. She was a free spirit and very irresponsible with her life. Not my type at all. I only dated women of an upper class status — the ones who kept their mouths shut and were successful in their careers. I had everything life could offer and I was content. At least, I thought was, until Emerson James came into my life. She was getting ready to go off on another adventure and I was determined to get her to settle down in one place: California. My name is Alex Parker and this is my story.

I guess I didn’t need to make any rules since Emerson was a grown adult. A beautiful, grown adult, which ultimately could lead to trouble for me if I wasn’t careful. Damn Adam for not telling me how hot she was. Hot or not, she was my friend’s sister and I couldn’t cross that line. Plus, she wasn’t my type. She wasn’t... how could I put this nicely? She wasn’t upscale enough. The women I dated and fucked were of high society. They were classy, something Emerson seemed to lack. I had standards and, unfortunately, she didn’t meet them. Which was a good thing. I couldn’t help but wonder, though, why she left Texas the way she did. Listening to her conversation with Billy was quite entertaining and the way she just blew him off was ballsy. The women I’d known weren’t like that. They were the Billys of the relationship. Begging and pleading me to stay and always trying to change themselves for me. There was a story behind Emerson James and I couldn’t help but wonder just what her story was. Was I going to find out? No. It was none of my business. She was here for three months and three months only. As long as she stayed out of my way and life, I would stay out of hers.


About the Author




Sandi Lynn, A New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, spends her days writing full-time to provide her readers romance novels that will whisk them away to another world.

Sunday Street Team | Never Never by Brianna Shrum
Never Never - Brianna Shrum

Welcome to the Sunday Street Team! This is my first post as a part of this amazing group and I am excited to say that it is not going to be my last!

Today, I am hosting a guest post from the wonderful Brianna Shrum. Her debut novel, Never, Never, will be released on September 22. Her book caught my eye because it is a retelling of Peter Pan (which I have never read before) from the perspective of Captain Hook! As we all know, everyone has a story, even the villains. 

Never, Never
By Brianna R. Shrum
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Pages: 368

James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.
When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.
But grow up he does.
And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.
This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.

Except one.

Blog Tour + Review | The Way to Never by O. E. Boroni
The Way to Never (The Never Trilogy Book 2) - O. E. Boroni

Today, I am happy to announce my stop on The Way to Never blog tour. A couple of months ago, I also participated in The Beginning of Never blog tour. If you want to see my review of the first installment of this series, then click here

The Way to Never
By O. E. Boroni
Published July 25, 2015

When falling out of love, refuses to become an option… 

Nathan Roque first met Lenora Baker, a beautiful, exasperating, and bitter girl when she was just fifteen years old. He fell so deeply in love with her that he suspected that in his lifetime, nothing else could ever mirror the kind of commitment that she drew out of him. But she is left heartbroken when an unfortunate incident drives them apart. 

Thirteen years later, he sets out to reach out to her when he can no longer resist the consuming thoughts of her that have haunted him for so long. However, the same demons that caused him to let go of her in the first place are still holding him back. But when he is thrust into a situation where he has no choice but to become professionally involved with her, a Pandora’s Box of angst, resentment, and passion is unleashed. 

Now they are forced to make the decision on how to proceed. But will it justify the one that they made in the past, or will it mock it?
