REAPER Book 2 in The Guardian Legacies Cover Reveal

After discovering her destiny as a witch, Anora is on a mission to find out everything she can about the magical world. Unbeknownst to her, the creatures of that world are trying to find out everything they can about her…and the people closest to her.

With Ethan and Hunter to protect her, Anora feels safe and happy with her new life. That is, until she begins to be plagued with terrifying visions that only she can see, leaving her full of fear and doubt. What if the hallucinations are real? What if there is something dark out there that can attack her from within?


If Anora can’t even trust herself, who can she turn to?


*Released Halloween, 2012*





The world of ghosts and spirits is nothing new to eighteen year old Anora Benson; she’s spent her whole life trying to ignore them, trying to be normal. But when the Pricolici, a group of ancient bounty hunters, are sent after her, Anora realizes she is more than just a medium.

As a witch she has power, power she doesn’t know how to use, power that makes her vulnerable to the demons that desire her gifts. Anora is alone and scared, forced to face the darkness on her own. Then she meets Ethan, a mysterious boy who shows up in her life right along with the magic, and he seems to know quite a bit about her and her legacy Coven. Will she risk everything by trusting him or risk fighting alone?

Title: The Corpses of Old Farm Hill Road: The Arrogant Man
By: Tabitha Short
ISBN: 9781301537297
BOOK TRAILER LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zd3lvWIXVg

Blurb:
He wakes up every morning knowing the world owes him something. Every woman was created for his demand, except for Vanessa Roundtree and her mother. Once lured onto their farm in the middle of nowhere he becomes their prey. As they torment his body, they break down his arrogance. Will he be able to escape? Or will he become just another of the corpses of Old Farm Hill Road?


Excerpt:
His face lit up as his hand gripped the handle of the car door. His entire body felt relief and his chest rattled with cries of happiness. He pulled the handle and the familiar sound of the car door opening that met his ears brought an unsurpassable amount of joy. He climbed into the driver’s seat, arranging his broken leg with his unbroken arm. It was excruciating, but he had to get through it to get away. He was almost there. Sweat beaded up on his forehead and he prayed he wouldn’t pass out again. He just needed a few more hours of consciousness to get out alive.
As his breaths slowed he felt his way to the ignition switch to start the engine. His heart sank when he discovered the keys were not in the ignition. No worries, I can hot wire it, he said to himself. The wiring was easy to find, hidden behind an access cover. Fumbling with the wires because of his swollen fingers, he quickly found the two he needed. Bending forward was agonizing, but he managed it and used his teeth to strip the wires. He twisted the copper strands together and found the purple wire. It gave him a little bit of trouble, but he was able to skin the plastic covering from it as well.
He heard a loud clunk on the hood of the car and his head jerked to attention. Standing in front of the vehicle was Vanessa. She was jingling the keys in her hand.
“You…are…one…stupid girl,” he said aloud, most of it coming out as nothing more than mumbles. He hit the wires together and the engine stuttered and then came to life. He laughed heartily, his chest rising and falling painfully. He glanced out the front windshield, ready to enjoy the look on the stupid girl’s face, but she was not there. His fingers quickly moved to lock the doors just as he heard her grip the handle. She was at his driver’s side window.
Her face grew angry when she could not open the door. She removed her shirt, wrapped it around her fist and began hitting the driver’s side window, trying to bust it. Mathew put the car in reverse, looked over his shoulder and began to back down the driveway. He was free! As the car rolled down the curved driveway, Vanessa ran after it. He laughed out loud and considered running her over, but thought against it as he neared the end of the driveway.

*DAZZLE Blog Tour:Review*




Synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old Delaney Scott possesses a special gift. Ever since she was a child, she has known about her calling and the duty she’s expected to fulfill.
However, all Delaney wants is to be normal. That’s why she is drawn to Sam. He can offer her the life she’s always desired. Only Sam has secrets of his own.
Secrets that are deadly. Secrets that can change everything.


My Review:

Dazzle is a fresh new twist on teens with supernatural powers. Author Amber Garza creates a world unlike we have seen in any YA books recently. Delaney and Micah live in the city of Edenly protected by   Zerach, but not everyone in Edenly follows Zerach. Some chose not to follow anyone yet, Zerach allows them to still live there. They aren’t really a threat unless they succumb to the ways of the Sarafites. The Sarafites aren’t allowed in Edenly,so no worries, right? Well there is a legend about Ekloge Warriors that say one day there will be another war against the Sarafites, but no one knows when it will accur. So those ten train until they day they are called to fight to protect their people. Could it be sooner than  they think? Could it be possible that the ground work is being laid down by the Sarafites to invoke a war?
Delaney is suspicious when Micah and she meet Ariel one night. Ariel becomes part of their lives but she may be holding on to a dangerous secret. Meanwhile Sam finally convinces Delaney to date him. As their relationship heats up and both realize they may be falling for each other, Sam also holds a dangerous secret. Can Delanely and Micah find the truth before it is too late? Will their new found relationships survive?

Haunted Moon Series by K.B. Miller Blog Tour: Review






Compulsion

Blurb:
A family secret kept hidden has been exposed, and the consequences could be deadly.

After Lilyann Moon's beloved grandmother dies shrouded by a veil of mystery, she and her young family members are yanked from their completely normal lives and catapulted directly into the supernatural world of witchcraft. A world they know absolutely nothing about.

The town of Hampstead, Maryland has no idea of the monsters that lurk in their midst. Or, of the dangers they will face if the Moon Coven doesn't figure out how to embrace the magick within each of them, especially Lily.

She's suddenly up to her little pointy black hat in magickal problems. Destiny presented her with one more, and it's a big one - vampires.

The only bright spot in this nightmare was meeting Mason. But, is she in love with the enemy? Lilyann is in a race against time to save her town and coven. Will she survive the coming dangers, with her heart and neck intact?

It all comes down to this one night...

All Hallows Eve.


My Review:

  Compulsion is about a family thrown into a heritage they did not know they had, a girl who must step into her destiny and lead her family against an ancient enemy, do her best to keep the family safe, and try to figure out what it is she needs to do to save them before it is too late. It seem ever since Lilyann  Moon has found out she is really a witch, actually one of the most powerful witches ever to walk the earth, the supernatural just keeps getting more apparent in her life. Her best friend starts to see ghost, her boyfriend may be something of the supernatural, I mean he is fast, strong and has excellent hearing, and there are menacing vampires out for their blood, Lily’s blood! Oh and did you know there are good and bad vampires? Wow all this to deal with is a short period of time. Why a short period of time you ask, because the Moon family has only until Halloween to figure out how to use and harness their magick, learn the initiation ritual and perform it correctly so they can take their rightful place as a coven, and figure out how to re-raise the wards on the family property to keep the deadly vampires out.
   K.B.Miller is a very talented write.She knows how to weave together a great story.She is one of my favorite authors. I loved Compulsion. It kept me captivated by the continue action and secrets that are revealed throughout the story. The story is well written and well put together. It flows flawlessly through the story. There was not one time that I wanted to put the story down because it lost my interest, actually just the opposite; I lost sleep because I couldn't put it down. I have to find out what was going to happen next and if the Moon Coven was going to succeed against all odds. Of course you will have to read it yourself to find out if they do or not.





ABOUT THE AUTHOR 


Okay, so I'm supposed to tell you about me...
Seriously, if I wrote a book about myself it would take you 10 minutes to read and you would be bored stiff after the first 2! LOL

I'm a full-time writer, wife, and mother. Which basically means there's always a surplus of pencils lost somewhere in my hair, I usually have some place to be(I'm always late), I have a bad habit of calling family and friends random character's names (from my books), I talk to myself because no one else listens to me, and I can throw together a mean dinner for 8 with only 10 minutes notice and four ingredients in the pantry, LOL.

If you can't find me on the sidelines of my sons' football games, online, cooking, cleaning, shopping, at the local coffee joint or on the phone wandering aimlessly throughout my house then I've probably hidden myself in my "bat-cave" to write.

I have a positive attitude, and absolute fun-loving approach to life. That makes it easy for the voices in my head to take over on a regular basis providing endless hours of entertainment for my pleasure, and hopefully yours.

Random facts about me:

~My favorite color is pink
~I have a Bishon Frise puppy named Cullen Edward
~My favorite music is hip-hop
~I have a severe addiction to coffee. So much so, that those in my inner circle refuse to speak to me before caffeine O'clock! True Story

Enjoy the ride.
~K.B. xoxo

~Touching Eternity Cover Reveal ~





What would you choose?

She had everything but freedom.
He had nothing but his loyalty, his wits and his training.

She was a prisoner, a disease, not fit for the world, and she didn't know why. But she did know she wasn't allowed to die, she wasn't allowed to live and she wasn’t sane.

He was a soldier, a protector, but his foundation will be tested when he must destroy the only light in his dark world.

Thrown together, prisoner and keeper, their rebellion will splinter through time, changing the course of history and the fate of the world. Their love will challenge their greatest enemy and immortalize them forever.

Loyalty. Freedom. Love.

What would you risk?

"Let me die."
Pain darkened his eyes. "Never."

The Conduit By Stacey Rourke Review, Interview and GIVEAWAY!!!

"Okay, little side note here. If a psychopathic killer asks if you want to see a trick, say no. That’s the smart thing to do. I, on the other hand, responded, 'Bring it'."

The Conduit By Stacy Rourke


Blurb
All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for. And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met. Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.

While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon. She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop. Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone. With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves. Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.
