Read ‘Em & Weap Blog Hop

Come have a Spooky Good Time With Your Favorite Grim Authors!

When asked to join the Read ‘Em & Weap Blog Hop I was excited. I’ve done blog tours before but never with such a passionate bunch of reaper writers. I encourage everyone to check out the other authors in the hop and enjoy their books too. And don’t forget to join the giveaway. There are some great prizes- including a $100 Amazon Gift Card!

My interest in reapers came about after deciding on a new series that was bubbling around in my head for a while. I didn’t want the usual reaper, so decided on a banshee. Jacqueline, the heroine in The Banshee’s Embrace Trilogy is definitely different than any other kind of reaper. Because of an accident she did not die like she should have; which would have made her a full banshee and capable of helping those who died to cross over. Instead she has banshee powers, yet remains alive and fully human. Because of her power, she is able to reap any soul, whether it is their time, or not. A dangerous combination, and something that could turn her into a powerful weapon in the wrong hands. Toby, a wizard and member of an ancient order of wizards, is tasked with protecting her. An easy enough job he thinks, until passion ignites between the two. With each soul Jacqueline reaps her powers grow until she becomes unstoppable. Eventually Toby is captured and tortured by an ancient and powerful wizard in an attempt to take control of Jacqueline. Angered and out of control, Jacqueline seeks revenge. But will she risk losing everything in order to save the one she loves?

In The Banshee’s Embrace we watch Jacqueline start out as a lost and confused woman, not sure what is happening her her. By the end of the series she is feared by all, and turns out to be one of the most powerful supernatural creatures in existence, capable of reaping any soul, including those of other supernaturals.

Congratulations and thanks to Lisa Medley for her inviting me and organizing this exciting event.

Young Merlin: A Dragon’s Tale

Young Merlin (A Dragon’s Tale) just went live. Click the book’s image below to see it on Amazon.

Merlin was warned that his thoughts could be dangerous; that he needs to control his stories. But then young and impetuous Merlin doesn’t take such advice very well. He weaves a story so fantastical that it changes his history, and that of the world.

When Merlin is pulled from the Dark Ages into the future by a clever incubus and the Lady of the Lake, he learns they plan to kill him before he can become the Merlin of legend. That means no King Arthur, no Excalibur, and no Camelot.

Using his blossoming skills and with the help of his modern-day companion, Viviane, Merlin must dodge his cunning enemies, defeat a dragon and get back to his own time before his history and the world are altered forever.

A story of wizards, supernaturals, time travel, and love.

Voodoo Love reviewed on BigAl’s Books and Pals

Here’s a wonderful review from BigAl’s Books and Pals review blog. These guys are really tough on book reviews, so I’m thrilled to get such a nice review and four stars from them.

Voodoo Love and the Curse of Jean Lafitte's Treasure

Description:
In the small town of Barataria Bay, Louisiana, Elizabeth Brown is struggling to remember the past. Two years ago she lost her lover and her memory on a quest to find a long lost treasure guarded by a voodoo curse.
When Elizabeth’s life is interrupted by a ghostly visit from Juan Carlos, she finds herself once again plunged into unwanted intrigue. With his help, her memory of the past begins to come back.
 
Appraisal:
The opening scene in this story is sure to grab you and not let you go. Then the story jumps ahead two years and we learn how Elizabeth’s life has changed and how she is coping with her loss of Juan Carlos. There is a powerful voodoo curse at play in her life she is entirely unaware of. Most of the story is told in first person and we get to watch as the scenes unfold and her memory starts to return. Several players are not who they seem and there is at least one extremely vile villain who insinuates himself throughout the story.
The plot is fast moving and captivating, interwoven with bits and pieces of voodoo history and rituals. The story is suspenseful and full of intrigue as Elizabeth’s memory starts to return and we get to know more around the series of events that happened when she lost her memory. The lore and curse surrounding Jean Lafitte’s treasure was what captured me the most.

While I enjoyed the story and the characters were well defined, I had a little trouble keeping a connection with Elizabeth. I empathized with her character, she had a smart wit about her. I liked the way she justified carrying a gun in her purse. She had a strength of character that I am not sure I would have had in her position. One of her biggest strengths of character comes at the end of the book where there are some twists in the story that make this a fully satisfying read.

Rating: **** Four stars
