LIFELESS

Words Made Flesh #2
Author: AdriAnne Strickland
Release Date: August 8th, 2015
Publisher: Flux Books

SYNOPSIS:

When Tavin Barnes escaped Eden City with Khaya, the Word of Life, he became the most-wanted fugitive overnight. But he never expected his flight would end with the ultimate curse: becoming the next Word of Death. Now he's a prisoner inside the Athenaeum, where his new life under the Godspeakers' control has begun.

As the Word of Death, Tavin can kill with a touch, an ability he must learn to harness or risk hurting the people he cares for. But Ryse, the Godspeaker charged with Tavin's training, is pushing him to be as ruthless as she is. Her goal: make Tavin an elite assassin, whether he wants to be or not. His first target: the Chinese ambassador to Eden City ... and that's just the beginning.


This stunning new paranormal series blends the sweetest of romances with breathless suspense, and introduces five young women who share a haunted past, an extraordinary gift, and an uncertain future.

My Review

Lifeless takes the Words Made Flesh series to a whole new level with the fight to keep the darkness at bay.

Tavin wakes up in a lab; drugged, strapped down and desperate to get away from his evil Godspeaker, Ryse. She is evil to the core and her mission is to break Tavin to use him as a weapon.  He tries his best to fight against her, and stay true to himself, despite being the Word of Death.

With manipulation, Tavin performs tasks he would never do willingly. On the verge to fall into the darkness, he knows he needs to escape before it's too late.  But who can he trust??

Wordless ended with one crazy cliffhanger, so you know Lifeless was going to start out fast and furious....and it doesn't stop until the end...which of course, is another cliffhanger that leaves you thinking, "Seriously, not again!!"  This author knows how to leave the readers hanging with great anticipation for the next installment.

The world created in this series if full of imagination.  I don't know about you, but when I want to escape into a book, have the words disappear from the page, I want my imagination tested and pushed to the limits...and I totally get that feel with this series.

Lifeless takes Tavin to a dark place....there is more evil and heartache...however, not without just enough humor to tie it all together perfectly.  The characters each have a personality and more depth as the story goes.  You discover along the way who can be loyal...because really, each Word is going through the same ordeal of being used.

Twists and turns, loyalty and betrayal, the Yin/yang of a great read.

Tease your imagination with Wordless and Lifeless.

Thank you AdriAnne for a great escape.

Like The Red Sky At Morning Cover Reveal and Giveaway



LIKE THE RED SKY AT MORNING (Forget Me Not #2)
by Brielle Skye
Cover Reveal August 17th, 2015



ABOUT THE BOOK

LIKE THE RED SKY AT MORNING
Forget Me Not #2
Author: Brielle Skye

Release Date: October 27, 2015
Publisher:  Gypsy Pen Publishing


SERIES SYNOPSIS:

In the battle between duty and desire, there will be causalities. But when passion is blinding, morals are questioned, and loyalties are broken, can love conquer all?
In Solitude of a Birdcage, when Isaac Cole falls victim to an act of violence that leaves him with no recollection of the prior eighteen months, two best friends tend to his recovery. For Savannah, it’s simply an attempt to care for the man she loves.
For Maxie, it’s a chance at redemption.
She tells Isaac nothing of the passionate secrets they'd been keeping from Savannah, nor of the unyielding feelings that nearly consumed them both. But as the fragile wall obstructing Isaac's memory begins to crack, hidden truths slip through the fissures, and Maxie will be faced with an impossible choice—her loyalty, or her heart.
Then, in Like the Red Sky at Morning, the story of Maxie and Isaac continues, and Maxie is determined to move on from the past she shared with Isaac—especially since he still doesn’t remember it. Seeking comfort in a new job, dreams of becoming a chef, and a scheme that may be the very escape she needs, she counts down the days to her fresh start. But as she draws closer to her goals, she finds herself facing a new temptation as intoxicating—and as forbidden—as the last.
Torn between the past and the future, truth and pretense, a new love and the old, Maxie will once again be forced to make a decision that will leave her with everything she's ever wanted, or nothing at all.

After Summer Ends Cover Reveal



Synopsis

My name is Willow Erwin, and I hate summer. My mother always said hate is a strong word, but in this case, it’s the right one. I haven’t found one good thing about the season. Most people tell me since I’m a teacher that reason alone should make it my favorite season, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. For me, summer brings everything I abhor: bugs, heat, sweating, and painful memories of a woman I will never see again.

Then, in the wink of one very beautiful blue eye, all of that changed. This is the story of Summer and how she taught me to love her. It’s about her quiet, and sometimes fearful, way of teaching me to embrace the moment, and to live recklessly. It’s about how both of us learned to forgive, to hope, to pray, and to love, even after summer ends.

She's the author of three series: The Sugar Series, The Northern Lights Series, and the Snowberry Holiday Series, all set in Minnesota. Her series are a mix of new adult and romantic suspense. After Summer Ends is Katie’s first lesbian romance, but many readers may recognize Willow Erwin from The Northern Lights Series.
Katie lives with her soul mate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married in April. Together they share their lives with their three children and two leopard geckos. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much-needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines. Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.

Catherine Coulter THE STRANGE VISITATION AT WOLFFE HALL Giveaway

The year is 1841 and Grayson Sherbrooke, a popular author of gothic paranormal mysteries, lives on the coast of Northern England with his 4-year-old-son, Pip. He's asked by a neighboring little girl, P.C., to come to Wolffe Hall because something terrible is threatening her and her mother. She's come to Grayson because she's confused him with his fictional hero, Thomas Straithmore, who overcomes all obstacles and always triumphs over otherworldly evil. Thus, to her mind, Thomas is the only one to save them. She describes the house shaking with terrifying tremors and a huge black hole she calls the Abyss appearing in the entrance hall. She also knows the menace involves her great grandfather, known as The Great. He's obsessed with collecting and returning the famous Waterloo medals to the soldiers of the great battle of 1815, but he refuses to tell anyone why he's doing it. Grayson is soon embroiled in a mystery involving a wrongful death on the battlefield at Waterloo and a paranormal force that threatens the very lives of those living in Wolffe Hall.
