Release Week Review! Denied (Sazi of Luna Lake #3) Cathy Clamp!
Denied - Cathy Clamp

 

 

A Novel of the Sazi

 

The thrilling stand-alone conclusion to the paranormal fantasy Luna Lake series, packed with action and romance

 

Cathy Clamp's landmark, USA Today bestselling Sazi series concludes with Denied, a thrilling paranormal love story.

 

Anica Petrovic was once human. Now she's Sazi, a bear-shifter and a hero for destroying a European kidnapping ring that was turning human children into shifters. Anica has embraced her Sazi self; and is settling into Luna Lake with her father and brother, happy to live in a shifter community where all are welcome. Love is in the air between Anica and a mysterious newcomer, Tristin, and between Anica's brother and Scott, an owl-shifter who worries about his family's reaction when they scent his attraction to another man.

 

A series of violent murders rocks the town. The killings appear to have been done by a bear. Anica's super-sensitive nose tells her Tristin, also a bear-shifter, is innocent of the murders...but that he's hiding something dangerous.

 


The conclusion to the “Sazi of Luna Lake” trilogy is a thrilling and energetic read that keeps readers on the edge.

 

Anica and Tristin are two strong, vibrant characters that easily draw the readers in and hold them hostage throughout their story. The relationship between these two is full of suspense, emotional turmoil and undeniable sizzling chemistry and two characters that aren’t sure about this mating be in anyway something that they want. Tristin is a mysterious and sexy shifter that sparks the readers’ imagination as much as he sends sparks flying in every direction while Anica is new bear shifter that is curious and readers can’t help but get caught up in her enthusiasm and sparkling energy.

 

The smooth flowing plot is fast paced and full of thrills, suspense and magic that keeps readers hanging on to every last world in anticipation of what will happen next while surprising twists keep them guessing whether the good guys will come out on top. The author makes the story come alive with well written words that paints vivid imagery and makes it easy for the reader to picture each and every scene.

 

The world of the Sazi is creative, well developed and full of fascinating and unique shifters that makes each book an adventurous and romantic read that has readers wanting more. Having read the Tales of the Sazi series is not necessary in order to enjoy the Sazi of Luna Lake trilogy but reading will enhance your enjoyment as some of the events that take place are the result of previous events and readers get to know the previous characters that do make appearances in this series. I for one hope that there are future books in the Sazi world like maybe the children of the Sazi…

Hi, I’m USA TODAY and Nielsen Bookscan bestselling author Cathy Clamp. I write urban fantasy/paranormal romance for Tor Books, including the Tales of the Sazi (shapeshifter urban fantasy romance) series, The Thrall (vampire) trilogy, the Blood Singer (urban fantasy, as Cat Adams) series—through book 6, and the new Novels of the Sazi series, beginning in August, 2015.

 

I’ve won a bunch of awards for my books over the years. My favorite was the Career Achievement Award for Paranormal Romance in May, 2008 from RT Bookreviews Magazine. I also shared the win for several co-authored books with C.T. Adams of the Book Buyer’s Best Award, the RT Bookreviews Reviewer’s Choice Award, the Reviewers International Award of Excellence, the Texas Gold Romance Award, the Write Touch Readers Award, and several others. It’s gratifying and humbling to win awards for books that you put your heart into, and I hope you enjoy them as much as other readers have!

 

I’ve also written several stand-alone novels, not in series, including my very first novel, The Road To Riches, an historical fiction about a railroad race in Colorado’s Silver Boom period, and Magic’s Design, the first urban fantasy published as Cat Adams.

 

I also write short stories, which is a whole different kind of writing.. I like writing in a lot of different genres, and it’s in short stories where I let my wings spread. I have published short stories in horror, science fiction, mystery, literary, Young Adult, romance, thriller, fantasy and western.

 

I’m represented by Merrilee Heifetz of Writers House, who is the best agent a writer could ask for! If you are interested in rights purchases, you can reach her at:

I live in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, which actually looks like mountain range that runs across the center of Texas. In geologic terms, a “mountain” is generally considered to be a minimum of 2,000 feet elevation. Anything below that is a “hill”. So, Texas has hills, instead of mountains. (But you’d barely notice the difference!)

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-08-16 06:00
The Revolution of Jack Frost by K M Robinson
The Revolution Of Jack Frost - K.M. Robinson

TITLE:  The Revolution of Jack Frost
 

AUTHOR:   K M Robinson

 

EXPECTED PUBLICATION DATE:       

6 November 2018

 

FORMAT: ARC ebook

 

ISBN-13:  9781948583077

 _________________________________

NOTE: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.

_________________________________

 

Book Description:

    "No one inside the snow globe knows that Morozoko Industries is controlling their weather, testing them to form a stronger race that can survive the fall out from the bombs being dropped in the outside world—all they know is that they must survive the harsh Winter that lasts a month and use the few days of Spring, Summer, and Fall to gather enough supplies to survive.

    When the seasons start shifting, Genesis and her boyfriend, Jack, know something has gone wrong. As their team begins to find technology that they don’t have access to inside their snow globe of a world, it looks more and more like one of their own is working against them.

    Genesis soon discovers Morozoko Industries is to blame, but when a foreign enemy tries to destroy their weather program to make sure their destructive life-altering bombs succeed in destroying the outside world, their only chance is to  shut down the machine that is spinning out of control and save the lives of everyone inside the bunker--at any cost."

_________________________________

 

This is something of a light dystopian/science fiction novel written in a simple style that young teenagers might find appealing.  The concept was interesting enough, but the execution fell a bit flat.  There were far too many mild romance scenes inserted randomly throughout that detracted from the story.  There were also too many unanswere questions or missed opportunities for extended world building.  The characters also have done with a bit more personality and conflict - especially the group of secondary characters.  They came across as docile sheep, following whatever instructions are given without question and not even twitching when they find out their world wasn't what they thought it was.   The writing of the first half of the novel was a bit stilted, almost like a novice writer.  The second half picked up pace and intensity.  This wasn't a bad book, but it could have been better.

Secrets, danger, and friendship made this a good story
Diamond in the Rough - Jane Goodger

Secrets almost destroy Clara's HEA. Nathaniel was not what he seemed, but he was want Clara wanted. A friendship grew into more, but the secret kept it from becoming more. I loved Clara's willingness to make her mother happy no matter what she had to put up with, showing how much she could love. I smiled as Nathaniel's single-mindedness shifted focus as he got to know Clara. The ending seemed a bit rushed to wrap everything up but left no loose ends. The story was good, and it was nice to see some secondary characters find their happiness as well.

I received an ARC of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Fun start to a new hockey series. Loved the characters!
Bishop - Sawyer Bennett

I enjoyed meeting this new team. Brooke and Bishop had great chemistry from the start. The natural way their feelings grew between all the pretend feelings kept me interested in how this story would play out. There were moments that were sigh worthy and sniffle worthy, and I look forward to more in this series as some of the secondary characters were fun to read about, and some need their comeuppance and others need that person to help them move on.

Midnight Snacks Are Murder - Libby Klein

 

After the death of her husband, Poppy McAllister returns to Cape May, New Jersey to take care of her elderly, purple-haired Aunt Ginny and also help her operate a bed and breakfast.  Keeping watchful eyes on Aunt Ginny and her wild and crazy antics; overseeing the remodeling of the bed and breakfast with all its blunders; the unexpected visit from her meddling mother-in-law; being wooed by two men for her heart, Poppy has become a sensation baking Paleo sweet delicacies.

 

Aunt Ginny’s night time medication has a startling side effect which causes her to sleepwalk and break into the homes of her neighbors, help herself to a midnight snack and take a trophy from her nocturnal escapades.  When Poppy and Aunt Ginny think all is well in the neighborhood, Aunt Ginny has been accused and arrested for the murder of one of Cape May’s humanitarians.

 

I have never snickered and laughed out loud so much while reading a book.  I enjoyed every page in this cozy mystery. Aunt Ginny’s shenanigans are hilarious and never-ending.  Her humor jumps off the pages. She reminds me of the “Golden Girls” Sophia with purple hair. What I enjoyed about Poppy’s character is that she’s a 40-something protagonist who has real daily struggles of living a healthy lifestyle and a dry sense of humor.  The mother-in-law’s character was entertaining, although I felt annoyed with her at times.

 

The author did an excellent job developing several plots and strategically connecting them.  It was easy to follow and the story flowed smoothly. The events happened in a timely manner without a rushed conclusion.  The romance wasn’t over the top and I hope in the next installment, we find out who will be Poppy’s love interest.

 

Midnight Snacks Are Murder by Libby Klein is the second installment of the Poppy McAllister series.  This lively story will have you doubled over with laughter. Also, at the end of the story are Paleo recipes which look very appetizing.  I look forward to baking a few of them.

 

Thank you Netgalley and Kensington Publishing for an advanced reader’s copy in exchange for my honest review.
