Violet Abyss
Violet Abyss (A Blushing Death Novel Book 7) - Suzanne M. Sabol

Title:  Violet Abyss

Author:  Suzanne M. Sabol

Publisher:  Soul Mate Publishing

Series: A Blushing Death Novel Book 7

Rating: Five

Review:

 

"Violet Abyss" by Suzanne M. Sabol

 

My Thoughts...

 

'Violet Abyss' was the seventh in the series:  A Blushing Death that will definitely present its title.

 

We find Dahlia Sabin has lived quite a 'lonely existence as a killer of the undead know as "The Blushing Death." This author gives the reader quite a interesting read as Dahlia  becomes very involved in the 'middle of  vampire conclave.'  What will happen when the 'vampire liege' comes to New Orleans?  This will be quite a interesting read however, I did find that the read will be so much more understood if you have read the other six in this series....Book one...A Pool of Crimson, Book 2 Midnight Ash, Book 3 Silver of Silver, Book 4 Golden Anidae, Book 5 Black Dalliances, Book 6 Emerald Fire and this one Book 7 A Blushing Death where the reader finds there will be a lots of action going on[in all of these series].  Will Dahlia, Patrick and Dean be able to get back this 'ancient relic of power' and save their friend Everett?  This read will show how  these three who were more than friends as they 'must use everything in their arsenal to turn the tide of revolution, and turning enemies into allies is more difficult and dangerous than any of them knew.'  Would I recommend 'Violet Abyss?'  Yes, but I would also recommend reading Books 1-6  before reading book 7 for a better understanding of what all  has all gone on earlier in this action packed story of humans, werewolves and vampires.

The Janes

Review:

"The Janes" by B. M. Hardin

My Thoughts...

Now I will say this one is one of the most craziest, mystery, and suspenseful novel I have ever read...but it was GOOD! This author Ms. Hardin really knows how to keep ones attention and this one definitely did it for me. Wow, Jane, Jane, Jane...and that Blonde Jane... I think it was a total of 10 of them living on the same block! This story even though it was crazy was very captivating as I turned the pages looking to read more about Jane[s]. By the time I got to the end of 'The Janes'...more twisted Janes come out front and center that goes with that saying 'when something is too good to be true, more likely.. it is!' Will 'Blonde Jane' get hers?! What disappointed me more than anything about the read was the way the husband Brice treated his Jane...like she had no idea of what she was talking about but even more of a shocker was the best friend of Jane, Charity. Oh, well to truly understand it all you will have to pick up 'The Janes' to see how well they are presented to the reader. This is definitely one heck of a story I will not forget anytime soon. Thank you to the author for doing what you do so well and that is giving the reader a good read!

Podcast #42 is up!
Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties (Culture, Politics, and the Cold War) - Thomas M. Grace

My latest podcast is up on the New Books Network website! In it I interview Tom Grace about his book on the infamous Kent State shootings in May 1970 and the events that led to them. Though I didn't review the book, it was an interesting one, not least because Grace was one of the victims that day and infuses his book with the familiarity born of the intimate knowledge of the campus and its culture at that time. Enjoy!
