Feature Friday: Marked by Jennifer Reynolds with Excerpt and Interview

Today for “Feature Friday” let us welcome the wonderful Jennifer Reynolds and her book Marked, the first book in the Valeterra series.

We will have info about the book and author. A great excerpt of the book plus a interview with Jennifer.

Make sure to check everything out and go and show her some support and add the book to your TBR ;) 

Happy Reading :)

For ten years, the people of Valeterra have watched a plague sweep across their world, killing nearly every supernatural creature in its path. As scientists from both the human world and Valeterra work on the way to stop the plague, the Valeterrian government is working on the way to repopulate their world with babies born immune to the disease.

In her thirties, single, and a bit of a bigger girl, Valerie has given up on ever finding love. She’s resigned herself to running her bookstore and growing old with only her baby sister. When a strange woman comes to her store with a story full of parallel universes, supernatural creatures, and plagues, and a proposal for how Valerie can help save Valeterra from extinction, Valerie is sure the woman is insane. Valerie’s opinion changes, though, when she loses her livelihood. Sad and angry, she throws caution to the wind and embarks on a journey that she fears will either kill her or break her heart.

Jackson lost his first mate over fifty years ago. He knows his world is in peril. He knows his pack is on shaky ground, but all the alpha wants to do is wallow in his grief. When he discovers that his second mate is a human woman who is also immune to the virus sweeping Valeterra, he has some hard decisions to make. He doesn’t want a new mate. He also knows that he can’t deny his second chance at love and the first real chance his world might have at eventually recovering from so much death.

“Are you sure you want to participate in this experiment, Sir?” my assistant, Stephanie Weems, asked, looking down at the files stacked in front of me on my desk. She looked relaxed, but I could smell anxiety radiating from her. “If I’m going to ask other alphas to do this, I think I should participate, don’t you?” I replied, purposefully leaning back in my chair, trying to look as nonchalant as possible while not eyeing one file in particular. Stephanie’s keen observational skills would notice me doing so if I wasn’t careful. She’d also catch the scent of lust emanating from me if I didn’t calm down. I couldn’t have either. The file and, more importantly, the woman detailed in said file that had made me decide to add my name to the short list of alphas who’d volunteered for the program in question wasn’t on top. I’d purposely buried it inside the stack so that Stephanie wouldn’t know it was what held my attention and so that I would stop looking at the woman’s photo.  

Hello Jennifer. Thank you for taking the time to stop in and chat with us, it is lovely to have you.

 

What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?

I would say that is a toss-up between hiring Rachel Olsen at No Sweat Graphics to create my covers and doing the Geek Gathering of the South event. I’ve been some amazing people at those events.

Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?

Every so often, I’ll go to Amazon or Goodreads and read my reviews. I usually handle bad reviews all right when it is clear the reader is being honest. The ones that are obvious that the reader did read the book or skimmed it or the ones where the reader’s give low reviews because of inconsequential things drive me nuts.

 

What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel? 

I’m not sure I have one. I think most novels I’ve absolutely loved a large number of people who have appreciated it as well. Now, I’ve disliked many that others like.

 

What does literary success look like to you?

Success to me means, getting a hundred reviews within the first month or a release and not having to spend all of my royalties each month on something book related.

 

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

I don’t think so. I think certain things are probably funnier to those who know me.

 

 

Jennifer Reynolds is a native of North Alabama. She has a Master of Fine Arts degree from National University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Alabama.

She is a multi-genre author who focuses mostly on post-apocalyptic novels with plagues and zombies as their source of destruction and paranormal romances, especially shifters, weres, and ghosts. She does occasionally dabble in other genres such as general fiction, horror, and suspense thrillers.

When she’s not writing, she’s a full-time caregiver of her elderly in-laws, a stay at home wife, an avid reader, and the mother of a seven-year-old kitty named Lilith.

River Marked by Patricia Briggs
River Marked: Mercy Thompson, Book 6 - Lorelei King,Patricia Briggs

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This wasn't my favorite book in the series but it was still a really good story. If you have been following my reviews you probably already know that I adore this series. I remember reading this book back when it was first released and enjoying it and I liked it just as much on this audio re-read. This is a series that I have made a point to keep up with and look forward to every installment. I had a lot of fun listening to the audio of this story.

This story takes place away from most of the group and I have to say that I missed some of the characters that I have grown to love just a bit. Mercy and Adam are there for the whole book so I didn't have too much time to spend missing everyone else. Mercy and Adam are off on their honeymoon but they end up getting involved in a situation that needs their help. There are some interesting characters that are a part of this installment including some that knew Mercy's father.

This book had a lot of really good elements. I like how Mercy and Adam's relationship just keeps getting stronger. I really cannot get enough of these two and think that they are just perfect for each other. The chemistry between them is amazing. It was interesting to learn a little bit more about Mercy's background. Her father is really quite a mystery so getting the chance to learn a little bit more is really quite exciting. There was plenty of excitement in this installment. I mean there is a river monster to be battled so of course there is some excitement. This was the kind of book that you just don't want to put down.

Lorelei King does an amazing job with this audiobook. I really didn't expect anything else. She has done such a fantastic job with all of book in this series that I have listened to so far. She has become the voice of Mercy form me. She does a great job with a large cast of characters and brings a lot of emotion into the story. Her voice is very pleasant to listen to and she read the story at a very natural pace. I was able to completely lose myself in this book for hours at a time. I can't wait to listen to more of this series.

I would highly recommend this series to others. I do think that this is a series that really does need to be read in order since the relationships between the characters develop throughout the series. I can't wait to continue with my re-read of this series very soon.

Initial Thoughts
Not my favorite book in the series but still a really good story. Adam and Mercy are away for most of this book and I did kind of miss the rest of the regular group. Plenty of excitement in this installment.

REVIEW BY DEBBIE - Marked by Love: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance: Taurus by Rosalie Redd
Marked by Love: A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance: Taurus - Rosalie Redd,Zodiac Shifters

A male from her past…forever marked by love. 

Rogue Panthera shifter Aramond scouts for enemies on the outskirts of the Keep’s territory, home to his daughter and her mate. While on the prowl he encounters a female from his past, one who etched an unstoppable ache deep in his soul. As she opens old wounds and another rogue male enters her life, Aramond must overcome his fears and set aside both their pasts if he is to win her heart. 

Danae runs a safe house, offering sanctuary to Panthera warriors in need. She tends their wounds, offers up a good meal and a place to rest, but keeps them at arms-length to protect her battered spirit still healing after the death of her mate. When Aramond, the sexy loner who’d captured her heart long ago resurfaces in her life, it will take all her will-power not to give in to the burning desire he ignites in her soul. 

 

@debbiereadsbook, #Paranormal, #Romance, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Marked by Obsession: PSY-IV Teams (Psy-IV Teams #3) by Jami Gray
Marked by Obsession - Jami Gray
Marked by Obsession is the third book in the Psy-IV Teams series, and focuses on Wolf and Meli. Wolf knows that Meli is skittish for a reason, and waits for her to make the first move. She does, but not in the manner he hopes. She rings him because she is looking for Risia. Meli has trouble coming at her from every side, and she doesn't yet know why. Wolf refuses to let her deal with this by herself and, along with Bishop, they arrive to offer both moral and physical/psychic support. The tension between Wolf and Meli is off the charts, but as the secrets start coming out of the woodwork, staying alive comes first!
 
I absolutely love it when an author improves book-by-book! Hunted by the Past was a solid 4-star read, Touched by Fate was better, and would have been a 4.5-star if I did half stars! Marked by Obsession though, 5-stars through and through! There was enough action going on with the current story to keep the most action-mad person happy. Although the overall story arc did make an appearance, it was more in comments about Delacourt being unavailable, or things that others on the team were doing. This enabled me to keep my focus on Wolf, Meli, and the intrigue that opened up.
 
Exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I would recommend that you read this book as part of a series. Not that you can't read it as a standalone, but with the depth of Jami Gray's writing getting better every time, why deny yourself the pleasure of knowing the past stories. With a snippet of the next book to come, I for one can't wait to get my grubby little mitts on it. Highly recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
