The Devouring (Kavachi's Rise) by Mike Kearby

A Dark Secret. Thomas Morehart and his sister, Kara are vampyre, not the undead, but creatures evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to mimic their prey, man. Then - rescued from a Nazi Prison Camp, Thomas and Kara are brought to the U.S. and forced to work inside government-owned mortuaries. Now -betrayed by the government sixty-seven years later, Thomas and Kara are in a race against time to transform back to their feral states or risk Exsanguination by government sanctioned hit squads

It is hard to figure out a description to go along with this book. Most of the time you can attach a tag to a book after reading it and keep it in a certain genre, but this is not the case. It is so hard to figure out which category this book could fit into, because although it is a vampire book it is not the typical vampire story.

This book gave me odd dreams after I read it, perfect for this time of year when all the little ghosts and goblins come out to play.

I also liked the historical parts they slipped in there. The WWII aspects where unique and very intriguing.

This tale was dark and beautifully woven, a cautionary tale not to be read right before bed.  I loved how the attention to detail pulled me into the story so deep it was hard to come back to reality without jumping at shadows.

The Lost Immortals By Kasonndra Leigh Tour Stop

It has been fifty-five years since the angels of the Apocalyptic War attempted to wipe out humanity. Now a new nation has been built where alchemy is forbidden, and angels fear for their lives as they hide among the mortals.

The city’s leaders share one view on the ancestors of angels: shoot first, no questions.

When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals.

Chela’s only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart.

Escape into a world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and forbidden romance.

I have mixed feelings about this book, I didn't like it nor did I dislike it. I find myself somewhere in the middle of the two.

In a world where angel blood's are feared and hunted down to be eradicated it seems the system is somewhat lacking when all of a sudden it seems there are Tainted and Angel blood's in ever nook and cranny.

I did like the various elements added into the book, and the twist on Ale-meds as well as The Beast.

The book itself however felt like it was going on forever. It seemed to drag on for me despite enjoying bits and pieces of it.

It was a pretty good read if you didn't mind pushing through the mud of it, but it definitely wasn't a one sitting finish.

I enjoyed the love element that develops in the story and how real it seems instead of pink rose colored glasses that other books make out a romance to be.

6 Seconds of Life by Tonya Fitzharris Tour stop!

Maura has just jumped.

Now she has precisely six seconds until she hits the water below her--just six more seconds until she is finally freed from her mundane and aimless existence. Freed of all of the regrets and disappointments that have haunted her throughout her nineteen years.

She just needs to be free.

But as she falls, the most pivotal points of her life start to replay like a movie in her head: her family falling apart, her first love, her first heartbreak, and her first betrayal. As she remembers these moments that brought her to this point, will she feel a sense of peace? Or will her death be her greatest regret?

"6 Seconds of Life" is a new adult novel that not only explores the ups and downs of college life, but the ups and downs of life as we know it.


Everyone has that moment in life where they hit rock bottom, where the light not longer gets through the darkness of the life.

In this book, one girl actually follows through with those dark thoughts and jumps. In those six seconds before her life will be snuffed out we are taken back to see what finally pushes her off the edge and into that dark abyss that people struggle to get through.

This book was a very dark read, and it was so realistic that it makes you want to look at the person next to them and wonder what was going on in their lives and if they are struggling just like you have been.

This was kind of ironic given two people in my life have succumbed to the dark thoughts and lost their hope and last month was Suicide Awareness month, which I took part in putting up links and such to help other's be aware and help with the grief.

I enjoyed this book because of how real it was.

Cleopatra Ascending by Maureen Lipinski Review

Sweet Sixteen = You're a Queen

Despite living with a shaman, a witch, and a muse for sisters, Rhea Spencer feels like a normal teenager-even if she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra. But all that changes on Rhea's sixteenth birthday, when her visions of the Egyptian queen start unraveling a very different version of history, and Declan, a hot representative of the secret Order of Antony, shows up on the doorstep to keep her from being kidnapped. Together, Rhea and Declan travel to Egypt to stop the Octavians, a dark cabal trying to tap into Rhea's growing powers. The cabal seeks to access the magic deep below the desert sands, a potentially devastating force that only Rhea can protect

I don't think I could even imagine a life with a family as paranormal as the main character's Rhea's. A  mother who has spirit guides that constantly tattle on the girls. It would have to be horrid, not to mention knowing all your life that you are the reincarnation of Cleopatra.

This book seemed like it was part of a series but for the most part it is fine being read on it's own. You don't seem to have missed much that the author does not explain along the way.

It did however remind me allot of the movie "The Mummy". After reading it I had the urge to watch it to the point I searched my movie collection to no avail.  Battles with the undead, reincarnated lover's, and secret sect's.

The only complaint I have is that there were certain parts in this book that seemed unfinished and/or rushed. Leaving me frustrated and wanting more depth or description.

Alice in Wonderland by Robert Gill/Zenoscope

The one thing known is that her time spent in a world full of insanity left her a broken adult. However, her courageous will to survive is what ultimately saved humanity.
Now the story of Alice’s visit into Wonderland is fully revealed and the truth of the terror will be told in full!
From Raven Gregory, Ralph Tedesco, and Joe Brusha, the minds behind Grimm Fairy Tales and Return To Wonderland, comes the series that Zenescope fans have been waiting for!
Follow Zenescope back down the rabbit hole and discover a world of madness like you've never seen before!

This is an Alice and Wonderland for adults, from the scantly clad women with large chests to the gore that accompanies the usual inhabitants of Wonderland.

It is definitely a  twist on the tale I have grown up with and loved. Truly a tale that would inspire nightmares and madness, I can understand why certain darker friends of mine found the graphic novel to be one of their favorites.

 What I liked most about the graphic novel was the start of each chapter. The picture's were absolutely beautiful, I could see the pictures hanging on my walls. I also liked the editors note telling what issues facts could be checked in or read more about.

Unfortunately this unique twist was not for me. The gore and the psychotic tendencies that were way to out there and advanced for me, I prefer the wonderland where some good came from the occupants.

Every Day by David Levithan Review


In his New York Times bestselling novel, David Levithan introduces readers to what Entertainment Weekly calls a "wise, wildly unique" love story about A, a teen who wakes up every morning in a different body, living a different life.

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.

There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.

With his new novel, David Levithan, bestselling co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day

This is a book I would recommend to every single person I could possibly come across.

It is a book that takes you into the lives of different people, different sexes and styles and puts you in their life for one day, making you sit back and think about the difference's of everyone and the struggles that they go through from day to day living.

I think on of my favorite aspects of this book was how the author explained having a mental disorder like ADD or being depressed and how it was a fight with your body every single day.

Or when A was in the body of a very obese man and how embarrassed he was. It didn't matter that it was only a day but it really put thing's in perspective.

I liked that the ending was not the same cookie cutter ending I was expecting. It actually threw me because I know so many ending's have those happily ever afters's so many reader's crave.

This book was compellingly unique, and brilliantly written.

For once there isn't a single thing I found wrong with this book, there is nothing I would change. I loved everything about it.

Mark of the Witch by MAggie Shayne

From New York Times bestselling author Maggie Shayne comes the first novel in her thrilling new trilogy, THE PORTAL She was born to save what he is sworn to destroy...

A lapsed Wiccan, Indira Simon doesn't believe in magic anymore. But when strange dreams of being sacrificed to an ancient Babylonian god have her waking up with real rope burns on her wrists, she's forced to acknowledge that she may have been too hasty in her rejection of the unknown. Then she meets mysterious and handsome Father Tomas. Emerging from the secrecy of an obscure Gnostic sect, he arrives with stories of a demon, a trio of warrior witches-and Indira's sacred calling. Yet there's something even Tomas doesn't know, an inescapable truth that will force him to choose between saving the life of the woman he's come to love-and saving the world


There are plenty of jokes about it.  A Rabi and a Priest walk into the store, eat lunch, yada yada yada. I bet there were not jokes about a Priest  and a Witch eating lunch together, much less falling in love.

As the past is rushing to catch up with Indy, her friend and fellow Witch Rayne contacts her brother, Thomas, who just so happens to be a priest on the look out for what he is told to be a doomsday prophecy.

But when bombs start dropping, and animals attacking and he finds not only is his heart on the line but that of his sister, then thing's start to come to head.

This book was full of twists and turns that left me on the edge of my seat and ready for more. Shayne once again gave a great delivery of suspense, fantasy and comedy all wrapped into one neat package.

Favorite Quotes:
" I have little boobs. Nice, firm, little boobs."

2. One. Just one. My precious.

3.The smell of books was soothing. It was the smell of knowledge, preserved and passed on.

4. I flicked his Bic, smiling at the evil rhyme scheme that brought to mind.

5. "There's nothing chocolate can't fix, " I informed him." I wouldn't be surprised if it could make this alleged demon so happy he grows a halo."

6. Fuck off, voice reason. I hate you. I hate you back.

7. My yoda lowered her hood to reveal Darth Vader underneath.

8. "Maybe the Universe is going to keep throwing you together until you figure out that love is more important then anything else and treat it that way. And maybe you're both going to keep suffering until you finally learn it."

4. Raven's.

Legacy of the Witch by Maggie Shayne Review

Once upon a time, there lived three witches…"

As a child, Amarrah loved her grandmother’s stories of three witches who were members of the king’s harem—but they were more than just stories. Amarrah knew she had been there with them…and now their legacy, along with an ancient box that once belonged to them, lies in her hands.

Charged with keeping the box safe, Amarrah is heartbroken when it is stolen from her while she moves to America. Years later, she is shocked to see it on TV and is determined to get it back. Tracking the artifact leads her to Sergeant Harrison Brockson, a handsome soldier who stirs memories of a man she knew centuries ago in ancient Babylon. Is Harrison the key to finding the box—or could he be her destiny?

Prequel novella to Maggie Shayne’s exciting trilogy, "The Portal

So I was not sure what to expect when picking this book up, it actually took me a second to realize it was a prequel to a book I was already reading, so of course I stopped reading that and focused on this book alone.

I have been a fan of Maggie Shayne for a while now. This book wasn't a let down when it came to expectations.

Reincarnation can be a tricky subject to brooch because you don't know which life to give the most attention to and often I have found the books containing such subjects lacking, this was not the case in Legacy of a Witch.

I loved that the love the two main character's felt would travel with them through their life time's and destiny draws them together.

It is interesting to see how things  start out and it is a book well worth the read.

Favorite Quotes:
"It was my first kiss. And I heard a whisper inside my mind, a vow. I will never forget this moment, this feeling, not even if I live a thousand thousand lifetimes."

Derailed by Alyssa Ivy Rose

When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home.

Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind.

Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamed possible

This is late getting up, and for that I do apologize. I had trouble snagging the computer from the fiance and by  the time he was ready to get off of it, I was sick and tired and just went to sleep.

Anyway, I read this pretty good book called Derailed, I have read books by this author before so I knew what I had in store for me when picking this book up. I was not disappointed with my choice either.

Derailed is a swoon worthy book that makes you think back on your first Love's, your high school sweet hearts and the loves that went bad and wonder the what if scenario's.

I loved this book and finished it in one sitting, I lost myself in the sweet romance that was Molly and Ben and I fell under the spell of this book that kept me captivated and tugged at the heart strings.

The Dark Lady by RJ Hore Review (Tour Stop)

The only surviving child of a murdered king, young Princess Nefesti must take up the throne of Vadio, though she is deemed to young to rule. Knowing that her surviving relatives all wish to seize control of the realm, Nefesti must contend with princes and delegates from rival nations that seek to swallow up her once mighty realm.

After reading so many young adult novels, you get use to a certain style of writing so it was very refreshing to loose myself in the rich adult world that quickly became the child queen Nefesti's life as she battled withs with her Uncle's numerous plots to gain the crown and power over the land, escaped assassination plots and kidnapping attempts, and avoiding arranged marriages all the while trying to do what she thought was best for her people and the land that was her birth right.

It is an intriguing world depicted beautifully by the author and the only problem I had waswith the italicized print at the begging of each chapter. It was hard to tell if it was a quote, where it was coming from. And often I skip the quotes that are put at the begging of each chapter. So once it became clear where it was coming from I found myself going back to pay a little attention to it.

I would have liked some more description to have gone along with the words the person was saying, even if it was just to explain it a little better. I realize that would add considerably to the book but it wasn't until the very end that the significance of the words came out and I feel that other reader's might do as I did, and skip over it thinking it lacked in importance when in reality it is the exact opposite.

Demons by Heather Frost

Kate's life is far from normal. She can see Auras, her boyfriend is immortal, and her powers make her a target. But now that the Demon Lord is hunting her, things are about to go from dangerous to truly deadly. Packed with action, mind-blowing plot twists, and characters you can't get enough of, this is a fast-paced, heart-pounding read from cover to cover.

Imagine falling in love with a boy who could never die, who never fell ill, who held the power's of regeneration so there is no chance that you will have to watch him die, that your love could be snatched away from you suddenly without a warning.
It is everyone's fear and quickly it becomes Kate Bennet's as Patrick, her Guardian and love contracts a fatal disease despite the assurance that guardians where immortal.

This book drew forth a variety of emotions for me, some good, and some bad.

So, lets get the good out of the bad out of the way first so the good can take that sour taste from things.

The first thing that bothers me, as it does in any book. Is the way the relationship is portrayed between Patrick and Kate. There is the whole age difference, that even with the "Twilight" series was  a huge problem for me, but more then that it was the way the two would act around each other in this writing.

It was such an unhealthy co-dependent relationship that it caused more then a little concern for the impressionable youth that could possibly be reading this because I don't want to think of my little sister being afraid to hang out with someone, that she would have to ask her boyfriend before doing anything. I understand running it by him so he knows where she is, and inviting him, but that is a partner ship, not an ownership like it seemed Patrick and Kate have. Whats funny is that at times I can't tell who owned who.

The Second thing that bothered me was the general stereotypes, whether it came from accent's to ethnicity, it was pushed to the point that it came off aggressive and somewhat racist. I can understand the point, if someone says Hispanic there is a general image portrayed with it, the same with anyone of Asian decent or a Texan accent. It is just a fine line to walk, especially when writing.

The final thing that really bugs me more then the other two, was how selfish Kate is, she seriously never learns to listen and the end result is something tragic befalling those she loves most. All of them should learn to listen and put people's needs above their own wants sometimes.

Now. On for the good.

I loved the Time travel. There were just key details that sealed the deal for me and made me sit back and think about how excellently things were being wrapped up.

I read this book while I was at work, and wouldn't you know it, as the climatic parts started winding up I would get a customer and be forced to put the book down. It is one of those books that when the good part's occur, they really occur and stick with your thoughts all through out the day.

I love the small romantic things that occurred as well, despite the creepy age factor there were still some really sweet moments that I would love to be spoken or done for me in real life.


The ending was my favorite part. The death of a key player seriously had my eyes welling up with tears as they fell down dead before our eyes. It was so  masterfully executed that my heart ached as the character's stopped beating.

Memorable Quotes:
1. Kate shined the light right at him, and he froze and flinched. "Wow, thanks allot. It's not like I was attached to my retina's or anything..."

2. "You need to go. We can't leave a bored Toni lying around-there's no telling what he'd do."

3. "Or maybe your morning breath scared the virus away. You were breathing on me all night after all."

Savage by Willow Rose

The year is 1983. Christian is 22 years old when he leaves his home in Denmark to spend a year in Florida with a very wealthy family and go to med-school. A joyful night out with friends is shattered by an encounter with a savage predator that changes his life forever. Soon he faces challenges he had never expected. A supernatural gift he has no idea how to embrace. A haunting family in the house next door. A spirit-filled girl who seems to carry all the answers. An ancient secret hidden in the swamps of Florida. One life never the same. One love that becomes an obsession. Two destinies that will be forever entangled.

Savage is a paranormal romance with some language, violence, and sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up

This book surprised me from start to finish, a task that is not an easy thing to accomplish these days.
When I first picked this book up, I was disappointed, and as my eyes scrolled along the text I figured I would end up skimming pages, it would be the same old paranormal romance deal. Boy was I wrong.

Rose elicits a variety of emotion as we are taken on a roller coaster ride through the entire book.
 I love that it was from a P.O.V. not often explored, and while it took away some of the suspense of thing's it was still an interesting take that not to many author's are willing to risk. Obviously it paid off.

The main character had it all and I was so sure that I would not be a fan of him for that reason, I was so sure I would be able to predict his every movement and thus become bored with a book that I was going to have to force my way through. Luckily that was not the case as each of his actions left me stunned at the way the author was taking things.

So, for a world full of vivid imagination and magnificent detail I would recommend this book.

4 Raven's.

Bad Juju Promo!

Book Description:

Lucien Nazaire flees his Haitian homeland and meanders around the United States for decades. He settles in a Wisconsin trailer park filled with elderly tenants. He meets Jake, his teenage neighbor, and hires him for odd household jobs. As their relationship progresses, Lucien invites the boy into the world of Voodoo.

Jake LaRue lives in foster care with his abusive uncle. The Voodoo lessons give him a sense of power within an otherwise helpless situation. Although the boy is a loner, he feels an instant connection with his classmate, Henry, and introduces him to Lucien.

Henry Novak has Asperger’s Syndrome. He fixates on historical events, most recently the 2010 Haitian earthquake. Like Jake, he becomes passionate about the dark side of Voodoo. They learn how to cast spells on those they hate and lust, leading up to dire consequences.

Several months after the Haitian earthquake, Henry convinces his family to volunteer with their church in the island's reconstruction. Their mission turns into a nightmare when he mysteriously walks off of the campsite.

Bad Juju is a balance of horror, romance, and literary fiction intended for ages fifteen and up. Research about the Voodoo religion, shapeshifting, zombies, and possession and themes of redemption and loneliness emerge throughout the plot.

Dangerous Embrace by Dana Mason Tour Stop

Sarah Jennings wants nothing more than a quiet life—alone.
Raised by an eccentric mother, their life on the road only taught her how to run away from hard times. But when she finds herself in an abusive relationship, this lesson serves her well.

Now, back in her hometown, she's found a place she loves. She’s a first grade teacher, and with few friends and less family around, she has what she wants, a quiet life under the radar where she can be free of her past and live quietly. Finally comfortable in her own skin, she’s settled, and less fearful than she’s ever been in her life.

But it only takes one night and one act of violence for everything to change. Injured and afraid, Sarah wants to run again, but Mark Summors refuses to let her go.

Just when Sarah thinks she can have Mark and the life he promises, her past comes back to haunt her.

Mark Summors was born and raised in Santa Rosa. He married his high school sweetheart and never questioned his life, until he found his wife with another man.

Now divorced, he wants something more. He’s passionate about his job, he wants to protect people, and he devotes his life to it.

This time he’s protecting more than just another client, he’s protecting his future; at least, Sarah Jennings will be his future, once he convinces her she loves him.

Being a woman who has suffered from abuse and rape it was very hard to read certain parts of this story because of how vivid the author wrote. I will say this, Mason hit the nail on the head when detailing the fear that will follow you after the traumatic events that take place after an attack and violation.

It was very sweet to see that through the hardships that Sarah went through she was still able to find that happily ever after that everyone deserves, that light in the darkness that makes the long dark road easier to traverse.

3.5. (Mainly because the memories it stirred up were unpleasant ones but it was excellent in description.)

Shadow of the Blood Moon by Robin P Waldrop Review and Interview Tour stop!

Author Bio:
I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, business owner, and author of YA/Urban Fantasy paranormal novels. TIES TO THE BLOOD MOON is book 1 in my series and is available on all digital sites, and also print and audio as well. Book 2 is finished and will be out in August.

You can read my reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Smashwords, and B&N.

I'd love to hear from you.

Interview with the author:
What is the best part of being an author, what is the worst?

The best part is the gratification you feel when you see your blood, sweat, and tears in print. The worst part is when your book sales start falling off. It makes you feel like you’re not the author you thought you were.


Where did you get the idea for your story?

It was a terrible nightmare I’d had and once I awoke from it refused to go back to bed. My oldest wake up and found me on the couch, so we started talking about it, and an hour later, Ties To The Blood moon was born.

What's your biggest fear and why?

Failure. I think its true for anyone. No one wants to hear their books aren’t good enough.

Does being a mother / grandmother help you relate with characters?
Yes and no. I mean, I get a lot of the lingo and definitely the attitudes for my characters from my teens, but as far as I know none of my children grow fur or bite folks on the neck…lol.

Which character was easiest to write for and why? Who was the hardest?
Genevieve was super easy to write. I think it’s because I have always had a good relationship with my daughters, therefore I could easily relate to Genevieve. The hardest is William. First of all, he is a vampire in love with a hybrid. And he has a lot on him, trying to keep her safe, and always competing with Joseph, which makes his temper a little on edge.


What is your favorite animal and why?

The dog, of course. Seriously, I grew up with dogs. They were mostly small breeds though, like Pekingese. My favorite of the dog breeds is the Doberman. I’ve owned four in my life. I’d have to say they are the best!

What do you do when you have writer's block?
I close my laptop, pour a cup of coffee, and pick up a book. Once I lose myself in the story, my block disappears.


What's your favorite fairy tale and why?

Cinderella. I love how she gets the prince in the end and her evil step mother and both step-sisters are left with nothing. Good conquers evil!! Love it.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to talk with us. Any last words you would like to leave us with?

Yes. Thank you so much for having me on your site. Both books in the Blood Moon series are available on all e-sites as well as paperback, too. Book 3 in the series is due out later this fall.

Genevieve Labreck is back with a score to settle. Her mom has been kidnapped by Zane, hybrid and all-around monster. Rumors fly that Gen’s mom is holed away in Prague, a city recognized by humans for its serene beauty and intense culture, but Gen and Will know something humans don’t. Prague is haunted by dark, evil forces.
Can Gen and Will save her mom, or will they be too late?
Some will live, others will fall. At what price do you walk away from those you love

This  was one of those books that I found I couldn't put down, it was so hard to drag myself up for air and remember which world was real.

It was really hard for me to get into it at first, a part of it being I started back to work and I had to get into the groove of thing's then, and at first I won't lie I wasn't sure that I was going to like it due to the fact that it seemed like parts of the book needed a little bit more time to develop. It was still beautifully written and one I will recommend for future reader's.
