REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - A Company of Monsters (The Sorcerers of Verdun #2) by Shami Stovall
A Company of Monsters (The Sorcerers of Verdun #2) - Shami Stovall

@GoddessFish, @GameOverStation/, #Historical, #Fantasy, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

A Company of Monsters is the second book in The Sorcerers of Verdun series, and it takes you right back to Geist and WWI. I would definitely recommend reading these as a series as the story does follow on from book one.

 

In this book, however, Geist and her squadron are sent to Russia as Houses of Sorcerers are being obliterated. Not a simple task being as WWI is happening and Russia is also going through a turbulent time. Not only that, but Amalgam shows up, together with Geist's family and the Eyes of the Kaiser which adds a whole new level to the story.

 

Just as with book one, Ms. Stovall has done an exceptional job with this story. The events flow from one to the other, ringing true with every word. The only reason for not giving it 5-stars this time is because of Geist herself. She seemed more... fragmented... disjointed than in book one. Which may well be how it is supposed to be but I found it slightly distracting. The relationship between her and Vergess is also confusing as, on the one hand, they have special 'intimate' names for each other, and Vergess is definitely more intense, but then we are also told that they have no chemistry between them.

 

On the whole, I loved this book, just not quite as much as book one. That doesn't mean this book is no good, not by a long shot. I will be continuing this series and seeing where Geist and her crew go next, AND seeing how Amalgam fits in!

 

Definitely recommended by me.

 

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

New Release Review! All I Want for Christmas is my Mating Stone (Dark Warrior Alliance #20.5) Brenda Trim & Tami Julka!

 

 

I had planned on spending the holidays in Zeum with the Dark Warriors but a horrible thing has happened and all the mating stones have gone missing and Mac is on the war path, so I think I will have delay my visit! Enjoy and don't forget to add ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY MATING STONE - book #20.5 in the Dark Warrior Alliance series by Brenda Trim & Tami Julka to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

The tree is trimmed, the stockings are hung, and Mack is ready to celebrate the holidays with her sexy vampire, Kyran. But when she discovers her mating stone has gone missing she is ready to sever some heads.

 

Christmas cheer quickly turns to chaos when the other females at Zeum can't locate their stones, either. Subsequently, terrible events occur one after another, and Mack is convinced it's because of the missing jewels. She fears her worst nightmare has come true.

 

Did the Archdemon steal the stones, and finally obtain the leverage needed to gain access to the Triskele Amulet? if so, the Lord of the Underworld will soon wreak havoc on her friends and family, as well as, the entire planet.

 

Mack and Kyran travel to the dragon realm, Khoth, in search of a clue to the whereabouts of the stones. Poisonous birds, mischievous gnomes, and a sexual rendezvous beneath a waterfall can only mean one thing. It's another unforgettable adventure with the fiesty, sarcastic, f-bomb dropping Mack and her deviant Vampire Prince, Kyran.

 

What begins as a search for a shiny stone ends with the couple learning the true meaning of love, sacrifice, and family. Christmas miracles exist, if you truly believe.

 

 

 

Mack is ready to celebrate the holidays with her sexy vampire, Kyran, but when she discovers her mating stone has gone missing she’s ready to sever heads. All the holiday cheer throughout Zeum quickly turns to chaos as none of the females’ stones can be found and terrible events began occurring. What begins as a search for a shiny stone ends with the couple learning the true meaning of love, sacrifice and family Christmas miracles exist, if you truly believe.

 

This holiday story is a delightfully exciting and joyous story that includes a trip to Khoth, a quest and self-discovery. The plot is fast paced and has our favorite snarky, kick behind mate and her sexy vampire having a few issues regarding their family of course these issues don’t impact the rocking chemistry or the scorching passion just the emotional side of things. The search for the mating stones leads them to Khoth where Mac receives an extra special gift that changes her and Kyran’s family for the better, which makes this story a delightful and extra special holiday read.

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

 

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

 

Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami's strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.

 

Their life journeys led them both to Texas and one another. They fast became best friends and can always be found together. Whether it's lounging by the pool or writing steamy love scenes, they are frequently seen laughing and smiling!

A lightning strike grants Jay new magic and unleashes an ancient evil. Skylar urges him to follow his instinct up the north coast. What they find changes everything Jay knew about his family and fate, tying him closer to the Branches of Emrys than ever.

 

The shadow mystic now freed will stop at nothing to control the magic residing within Jay. Skylar’s ability may be the key to keeping him safe.

 

 

 

While exploring Australia, Skylar McNamara and Jay Walker visit Jay’s hometown, Morissey even though it is long gone. During the visit, lightning strikes Jay, granting him new magic and unleashing an ancient evil. They must learn everything about the ties between the past, his family and the Branches of Emrys if they want to survive the shadow mystic that will stop at nothing to control the magic residing within Jay. 

 

Another thrilling story from the world of Others. Jay and Skylar are two strong characters whose world is about to be changed is a major way as the past and the present collide. The mating between Jay and Skylar is a strong, unbreakable bond that readers can practically see as it holds them together and helps them fight the ancient evil. Their passion burns hot and the emotional turbulence that stems from the unexpected situation that they find themselves flows from the pages.

 

The suspense and excitement builds throughout this fast paced story as the enemy’s draw closer and all the secrets and events of the past unfold. This story takes place over centuries and the author portrays it such a way that the readers can practically feel the span of time and the magic buzzing in the air. The readers can’t take their eyes from the pages as twists and turns ensures that there is always something happening, especially as the danger turns out to be a more complicated and long set in motion than anyone knew.

Early Review! Maven Warrior (Dark Warrior Alliance #20) Brenda Trim & Tami Julka!

 

 

 

It's time to head to Confetti Too to meet up with the King of Fun, Killian Silesia as he becomes captivated by a human female - one that could be a mole that could end supernaturals' secrecy once and for all! Enjoy and don't forget to add MAVEN WARRIOR by Brenda Trim & Tami Julka to your shelves!

 

 

 

 

Killian Silesia has dedicated his life to protecting the Tehrex Realm from demons, as well as, being the King of Fun. The nickname is appropriate, given he owns the realm's most popular nightclub, Confetti Too. His seat on the Dark Alliance council ensures the club is hidden from humans, yet safe for supernaturals. Killian's exposure to humans is entirely virtual as he is the computer expert in the realm, so he is entirely unprepared when a human enters his bar. He's captivated at first site and thrown off his game by the alluring female. The fact that he doesn't bother investigating where she came from proves disastrous, but he's too busy seducing her to consider the consequences. Has he found his Fated Mate, or a mole that could end supernaturals' secrecy once and for all?

 

Teagan Lewis accidentally discovers an unknown world of mythical creatures when she enters Confetti Too, and is further compelled to immerse herself in the intriguing yet dangerous realm. She meets the sexy owner, Killian, and can't resist his magical charm but as a malicious force takes hold, Teagan acts without conscious intent to learn every secret about the Dark Warriors, and its leader. Can she overcome the inner turmoil that threatens to expose the warriors and the Tehrex Realm? What price will be paid for succumbing to the sexy sorcerer?

 

 

 

Known as the King of Fun, Killian Silesia has dedicated his life to protecting the Tehrex Realm from demons and his experience with humans is entirely virtual as he is the computer expert in the realm. He is entirely unprepared for the human woman that enters his club and he’s too busy seducing her to consider the consequences as he has either found his Fated Mate, or a mole. Teagan Lewis accidentally discovers the unknown world of mythical creatures when she enters Confetti Too but she is compelled to immerse herself in the intriguing yet dangerous realm.

 

The Tehrex Realm and Khoth is once again in the spotlight with a fast paced, thrill-a-minute, highly suspenseful story that rocks the readers’ world. The demon witch with a capital B has stepped up her game with a sneaky, underhanded move that has put a Fated Mating in dire straights and could give her the information that she needs to get to the children, if the ‘Dark Warrior Alliance’ can’t find a way to undo it. The fast pace if full of suspense and excitement that keeps readers holding their breath in anticipation of what will happen next in both Realms. In Khoth, Izzy is missing her family and getting herself into a bit of trouble when she find herself caught between friends, but she also has a few surprises in store for the better of Khoth and of course the dragons’ enemy is still causing mayhem with a few exciting battles. 

 

And that’s not even mentioning the very suspenseful but delightfully passionate Fated Mating going on between Killian and Teagan that is if all they can circumvent the demons intentions which add lots of emotional turmoil and passion to this already energetic and gripping story.
