The Myth Manifestation / Lisa Shearin
The Myth Manifestation - Lisa Shearin

New York is one of the most popular convention destinations in the world—for humans and supernaturals. Every hundred years, rulers of thhe world’s supernatural races come together to negotiate and renew a peace treaty. Meeting in the same hotel are the governors of our world’s goblin and elf colonies. SPI is saddled with the security nightmare of keeping the living delegates alive and the undead delegates from becoming permanently deceased. We’ve got our work cut out for us.

I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for SPI. Our security nightmare becomes real when monsters from the delegates’ mythologies begin mysteriously appearing in the flesh to hunt delegates from every side of the debate. And when the hotel gets sucked into another dimension, there’s no escape.

We discover that we’re all pieces in an elaborate and deadly game. A game about to spill out into the real world. Failing to escape is game over and not an option. We have to save the world—but first, we have to save ourselves.

 

I’m still enjoying this series--there’s plenty of action in each book, but somehow the overarching plot line moves along very, very slowly. But this seems to be a Shearin thing, as her Raine Benares series is exactly the same in this regard.

Speaking of the Raine Benares series, this is the volume where the two series come together. One of Raine’s piratical relatives shows up as a diplomat here in Mackenna’s universe and Mac’s goblin love interest, Rake, turns out to be a cousin of Raine’s one-time love interest, Tam.

I’m not entirely sure, but it seems that Shearin has had to publish this book (and later volumes of Raine Benares) as an independent, rather than with a traditional publisher. My public library wouldn’t order this volume, because their policy is to only purchase from traditional publishers, so I had to put out my own cash for this adventure. Not a big deal, since I’ve purchased the entire series, but it makes me a bit sad that people who depend on the library can’t continue on. 

I think I’m safe in saying that if you liked previous volumes of the SPI Files, you will also enjoy this one. If I have any critique, it’s that I didn’t get nearly enough of Mac’s partner, Ian, in this volume. The Mac-Ian show has been entertaining and I’m sorry it got short shrift in this outing. I’m also a little disappointed with Rake, who seems to be going all ooey-gooey good guy. Where is the dark mage that Mackenna fell for in the first books? 

Despite these concerns, I don’t think there’s any doubt that I will put out the money for the next volume!

ABOUT THE BOOKS

 

 

 


The Vampire's Temptation
Bloodwite Book 1
by Cecelia Mecca
Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Even cursed blood can fall prey to love’s bite.
Kenton Morley and Lawrence Derrickson have hated each other since they were feuding border lords in medieval England and Scotland…seven hundred years ago.


When their bloodlines were cursed, birthing the world’s first vampires.
Their feud has carried through the centuries based on an old argument: Kenton seeks to destroy the Cheld—the only line of humans capable of killing their kind—while Lawrence seeks to save them.


It’s said that men can forget, but never forgive. It’s also said that true love knows no bounds.


When the vampires move to Stone Haven, Pennsylvania, Alessandra Fiore will find out firsthand which of those old adages is true.


It doesn’t matter whether she believes in vampires or not…
Because they believe in her. And she’s on the very cusp of discovering her dormant powers as a Cheld—a potential vampire hunter.


With both of these strangely wealthy newcomers’ storming into her sleepy, peaceful town, warning her to stay away from the other, what is a girl to do? Especially when Kenton—the one that supposedly wants to kill her—has a devilish twinkle in his eyes that she just can’t say no to?


No matter how dangerous she instinctively knows both men to be, strengths and powers of her own are beginning to bubble to the surface, encouraging her that she can take care of herself, thank you very much.


Love and Hate—two sides of the same coin. Literally.


The only thing left to do is flip that coin and hope for the best…to see which old saying is true. And how many innocents bet the wrong way.

What has she done?


Nothing more than inadvertently create the first two vampire families who happen to despise each other. A seven hundred year old blood feud in the making. . .


The Healer's Curse is the origin to a love story so wickedly passionate, its heroine won't be the only one left shuddering.

ABOUT CECELIA MECCA

 

Cecelia Mecca is the author of steamy historical and paranormal romance that transports readers to another time and place.

 

Every heroine, from Lady Sara in the Border Series to Alessandra Fiore in Bloodwite, is your best friend– the one who kicks ass and takes names. When these ladies meet alpha-males who try to take control, sparks fly until the very last page.

 

Cecelia writes the bestselling Border Series which takes readers to an admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles in 13th century Northumbria along the Anglo-Scottish border. She’s also currently jumping into a new world which tests the patience of even the most steadfast romance heroine. After all, dealing with the ultimate bad boys– sexy, wealthy and swoon-worthy vampires– is not for the faint of heart.


Our Highlander-loving, vampire-writing author can be found in Northeast, Pennsylvania, chai in hand, thinking up new ways to tame both medieval and paranormal playboys. She is firmly House Stark and Gryffindor.

Release Week Review! Unhuman Light (Chronicles of the Light #1) Chris Stoneheart!

 

 

Today, I am sharing the first book in a new urban fantasy series - Unhuman Light (Chronicles of the Light #1) by Chris Stoneheart! Enjoy and don't forget Unhuman Light to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Chronicles of the Light, book one…

 

Bodies keep piling up, but Kaitlin O'Malley refuses to back down, even when threatened by someone once worshipped as a god. Training for a battle between good and evil, she teams up with the Dragon King and a powerful lion, and finds herself protected by a Master Vampire who wants her in his bed.

 

With a vile enemy ready to destroy her, the men in her life lock her up to keep her safe, but Kaitlin will never let other people fight her battles. She’ll have to break free and venture out on her own, wielding a powerful weapon to protect herself — a weapon her enemies would kill for. To face the enemy alone, Kaitlin must view the world in an Unhuman Light.

 

In a supernatural battle of magic and strength, can an unlikely human prevail?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Unhuman Light is a spectacularly exciting urban fantasy romance that holds readers spellbound from the very first page to the last. The characters are strong, bold and fascinating which easily draws reader into their story and readers can easily connect with these characters, understand their motivations and fall in love with them. The characters are lifelike and in no way perfect which makes all their actions seem realistic and full of depth. Kaitlin is a wonderfully, enthusiastic and energetic heroine that has an appealing personality (although she may appear to be a bit too good to be true, at times) and while she may be human, she is full of special gifts that make things interesting and exciting. And while this story is just the beginning for her, the romance part is already heating up as a master vampire and a couple of alpha males compete for her attention.

 

The story is fast paced and quite informative giving background and explanations along the way but in such a way that it all fits and keeps things exciting. There is certainly no way to be bored when reading this story as it continuously has something thrilling, suspenseful or intriguing going on with lots of surprising twists and turns that readers won’t want to miss a second of. Magical battles, supernatural politics and beings that have been worshiped as gods abound throughout this story also adding to all the excitement and secrets add to the suspense ensuring that readers will come back for more of this supernatural battle of magic and strength.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

A CURSED MOON


by Cecy Robson
Weird Girls, #2.5

Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance

 

SYNOPSIS

 

 

Meet the furry big brother that the Wird sisters never had…
Bren is a cocky, brash hound of a werewolf who loathes the idea of belonging to Aric’s pack—much less finding a mate. But Bren’s hotheaded behavior lands him in the doghouse when he defies Aric’s authority in front of his pack, bringing up a sore subject that’s bound to make the Alpha wolf’s blood boil…


Luckily for him, no one can stay mad at Bren and his wild charm for long. And when some frightening ghosts launch a hostile paranormal takeover, Bren will team up with Celia to take down the evil ghouls before they hurt someone they both love…

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

This Weird Girl novella is spine tingly thrilling with lots of action and excitement. The characters are strong, bold and easily grab readers by their imaginations and demand that they take part in their story while the fast pace keeps readers glued to their seats. The story is full of emotional angst as well as all the action of the ghosts that has launched a hostile takeover. The author paints such vivid imagery that readers can easily imagine each and every scene which makes the ghostly visits and the thrilling actions send chills down the readers’ spines, so while the story is short is packs quite a punch and adds a lively story to the fascinating world of the Weird Girls.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT


“Damn it, Bren—wake up!”

 

“Hmmph?” Someone with a death wish was shaking me. You don’t disturb a werewolf’s sleep; that’s just common fucking sense. The breeze shot through the cracked opened window, bringing a strong whiff of Tahoe’s magic. I grinned and inhaled. That shit was better than witch ganja, and it lulled me back to sleep.

 

But then Dan flipped on the leg lamp on my nightstand and opened his yap again.

“Wake up, I mean it.”

 

“Grrrrr.”

 

“You can take that werewolf shit and shove it up your ass.”

 

That made me chuckle into my pillow. Dan swearing was damn funnier than Elmo dropping the “F” bomb. He shook me again, this time harder. I flipped over and tried to get comfortable.

 

“For crying out loud, put some pants on! I don’t need to see your . . . stuff.”

 

“It’s my goddamn room. I can sleep naked if I want. And what the hell do you mean by ‘stuff’? What are you, ten?”

 

Dan ignored me. “Bren, your stupid one-night stand stole all our food, our DVDs, and our laundry detergent.”

 

I half-opened one eye. “Wendy wouldn’t do anything like that.”

 

“Her name was Natasha.”

 

“You sure?”

 

“That’s the name she wrote all over my bathroom with her lipstick.”

 

I sat abruptly, suddenly panicked. “She didn’t take my porn, did she?”

 

Dan’s jaw slacked. “Is that all you care about, that she took your porn?”

 

“No. For shit’s sake I’m hungrier than hell. How are you going to fix me breakfast without any food?”

 

Dan threw his hands in the air, in that same exaggerated way he always did when I pushed him to his breaking point. He kicked my dirty clothes on the floor and paced like an expectant dad. “You have the audacity to think I’d actually cook you breakfast—after what your one-nighter did?”

 

I scratched my beard. Damn, I needed a trim. “Well, yeah. It’s your job around here, you’re the woman. You’re supposed to cook, clean, and pay most of the bills. My job is to keep your ass safe from humans, vamps, weres, witches, little old ladies, and pretty much anything else you’re afraid of. It’s part of our deal, along with me getting you laid.”

 

Dan stomped to the side of my bed, stumbling over a pair of my old jeans. “First of all, it was just that one little old lady. I may be human, but I’m pretty sure she was some kind of spirit―especially given the amount of supernatural activity around here lately. Secondly, I don’t need help getting laid.”

 

I stared at my beanpole roommate. His messy curly hair hung over his thick black-framed glasses, and he tripped over air on a regular basis. Jesus. There were Girl Scouts more muscular and agile than him. “Yes, you do, Dan.”

 

“I’ve gotten laid a lot lately, all without your help.”

 

“Ugly girls don’t count, man.”

 

“Celia’s not ugly.”

 

I laughed and yanked at my overgrown hair. Damn, I needed a cut, too. But unlike Dan, I did grunge well. “Celia was more than eight years ago.” I chuckled again.

Talk about a mercy lay.

 

He narrowed his eyes. “What’s so funny?”

 

“I still can’t believe you were her first. How’d you talk her into it? Did you promise to tutor her in chemistry or something?”

 

Dan’s entire face reddened, making him look more like a tomato than a walking piece of broccoli. “Whatever, Bren. I’ll prove to you I can get laid.”

 

“Sure, sure, you can get laid. Don’t get your thong in a bunch.”

 

Dan stamped his foot. Shit, I only thought girls did that.

 

“I mean it, Bren. I have to work late at the lab tonight, but I’ll meet you at eleven at the Watering Hole. I’m going to get a girl so hot your head will spin.”

 

I yawned. “Sure you will, buddy.”

 

“Fine. If you don’t believe me, how about we bet on it?”

 

“Dan, you don’t want to bet me on something like that. You’ll only lose and embarrass yourself.”

 

“You’re just afraid. I thought you were a wolf, not a chicken.”

 

My brows furrowed and I snarled. “Did you just call me a chicken?” This time it was Dan’s turn to laugh. I could be pretty damn intimidating, but he knew I’d never hurt him. He was a mothering pain in the ass, but also the best friend I’d ever had.

“You heard me, clucky.”

 

A slow grin eased across my face. “All right then, name the terms.”

 

“The loser has to clean and cook for the rest of the year . . .”

 

“Is that the best you can come up with? Oooh, I’m real scared now.”

 

“. . . wearing a French maid outfit, regardless of who’s in the apartment.”

 

My grin widened. The little turd had some balls after all. “You’re on.” I held out my hand. He refused to shake it until after I showered.

a very fitting end x
Escaping Mortality (Escape Trilogy #3) - Sara Dobie Bauer
I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. But since I read and reviewed the other two parts, it's only fitting I review this one, too, don't you think?? This is the third and final book in the Escape trilogy and you rally MUST read the other two books first. You need to know how Edmund and Andrew found themselves in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, looking for an Elder! Only Andrew has a say in these books, and THIS one, more than the other two, I NEEDED Edmund I really did! Some things happen here, that made me want to hear what he had to say, so bloody bad and he doesn't. I KNEW that he probably would not have a say, but a girl can hope, right? Edmund and Andrew and their friends are on a boat to England and to find the Elder. Once the Elder has located and Edmund turned, they continue on to visit Edmund's sick mother. The "friend" looking after her is vile and dealing with her and the gifts the Elder has bestowed upon him, pushes Edmund to his limits. Then WHY the Elder gave Edmund these gifts becomes clear and Edmund has a choice: Andrew or the Elder. I found this one a little less sexy than the others, but a whole lot more bloody! The way Edmund deals with the friend was scary, but needed I think. The Elder? Well he choose his path, once it became clear that there is, and there will only ever be, ONE person for Edmund. I did not see what the "friend" was up to, looking after Edmund's mother, nor did I see what the Elder had planned fro Edmund, so it was nice to be surprised by those things. I LOVED the epilogue! Seriously well played with that one! I have enjoyed these three short bursts of Andrew and Edmund, but I really think had Edmund been given a voice too, these would have been all 5 star reads. Thank you, for letting me read your books, Ms Dobie Bauer! 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
