Great debut novel
Demon Rising - Deanna Browne

This debut novel by DeAnna Browne is everything a good Urban Fantasy should be. It's wonderfully written, the characters are complex, the world-building is excellent, and the story starts out with a bang and doesn't let up. We even get a bit of romance as our heroine, Becca, has feelings for her childhood sweetheart and her ex-boyfriend. We do have an open-ended conclusion as this is the first book in a series, but that didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying this one from beginning to end. With a world ruled by magic and so many interesting characters, I can't wait to see where this one goes.

Today’s stop is for DeAnna Browne’s Demon Rising. We will have info about the books and author, and a great excerpt from the book, plus a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading :) 


Some sacrifices cost more than death… Thirty years ago, dark magicians unleashed new power on the earth fueled by demons. Governments toppled, millions died and magicians ended up on top of the food chain. Twenty-four-year-old Becca survives these dangerous times by relying on her wits, her fists, and the limited goodwill of her boss, a local crime lord. When news comes of a fire back home and the family she left behind dead, she realizes her dark past has finally caught up to her. On the hunt for her missing sister, she must rely on Darion, a treacherous ex-boyfriend with ties to the local coven for back-up. Problem is he’s a pyromancer that can’t be trusted, especially with her heart. Will she escape the sticky web of treachery and deceit with her sister and her heart, or will she sacrifice it all to save another? Becca’s forced to navigate a dangerous web of deceit and must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save her sister.     “An enthralling new voice gives us a magical world where love leads to dark decisions.” ~ Jami Gray, award winning author   “…extremely well written, filled with wonderful characters, strange happenings, and face paced action. I, for one, found it very hard to put down. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.” ~Taylor Jones, reviewer

The tattoo on Becca’s neck prickled as she walked the crowded path to work. Searching for the possible source of magic, she continued forward, with coffee in one hand and the other resting by the knife at her waist. She moved amid a throng of people, shuffling along the worn walkways. Heavy clouds were scattered across the sky, while dilapidated buildings surrounded them, a haunting reminder of what once was. A young man pushed past Becca, dressed in blue coveralls. He must be heading to the line. The tattoo on Becca’s neck prickled as she walked the crowded path to work. Searching for the possible source of magic, she continued forward, with coffee in one hand and the other resting by the knife at her waist. The warehouse traveled up twenty stories high, the tallest building in town with a large fountain in front. It must have once been a beauty. Now the fountain, covered in graffiti, ran dry and the boarded up windows could barely keep the wind out. A familiar, lanky guard stood watch on the side of the road. Could he have been the source of the magic warming her tattoo? He scanned the crowd with a demon dog at his side, a German shepherd with unnaturally large black eyes. Turning forward, she let her dark hair fall into her face, not wanting to draw his attention. She stepped past the guard undisturbed. She could handle herself with the guards, but her boss, Nikko, constantly nagged her about keeping a low profile. The crowds pressed together, and a large man knocked into Becca’s side, tripping her. She stumbled, spilling the remains of her coffee all over her black jeans. Someone swore as the crowd surged forward, and she stepped to the side. At five-foot-five, she was on the small side, but strong enough to cause pain and scrappy enough to avoid it when she could. The crowds weren’t her problem, though. That would be the presence behind her, causing her tattoo to burn.

 

 

DeAnna Browne graduated from Arizona State University with her BS in Psychology. She finds it helps to corral those voices in her mind and put them to paper. Her debut novel, A DEMON RISING, came out in August 2017 with Black Opal Books and book two in the series, UNHOLY SUNDERING, is due out 2018. An avid reader and writer, she has a soft spot for fantasy with a touch of romance.

Halloween Bingo - Witches
The Demon Trappers: Forsaken - Jana Oliver

Initially I thought I'd read Forsaken for the Demons square, but I ended up reading another one for it earlier. I wasn't sure if I had an unused square that it would work for, but I had the book, so I read it anyways. And it turned out there was a witch in it. It took a while for her to show up (or for the books to let us know witches even existed in this world), and she was only there for a little bit, but she was there, so I'm using this for the Witches square.

You have to like fighting in this third part of the series
Rage of a Demon King - Raymond E. Feist

Third volume of a four-book series, this novel is basically one long battle with some progress with Roo's and Erik's individual stories. Revelations and intrigue abound with some further character development.

It's worth reading the previous two volumes to fully comprehend what this book is about and, although not a great fan of books about battles and fighting, I found it important to see it through to the end (640 pages plus). The fourth part awaits.
