DARK HALO is Tempting…

Dark Halo (Angel Eyes, #3)How can a person refuse a gift from Lucifer?

The Great Deceiver has only had one person in history deny his temptation—and we all know what happened to Him.

So, really it’s no shock that Brielle accepts Lucifer’s terrible gift. One designed to undermine her faith—not only in God, but in herself and the power within her.

DARK HALO, the final book in Shannon Dittemore’s ANGEL EYES trilogy, elegantly addresses temptation in all its forms. From simple deception to outright seduction, Brielle, Jake and Marco repeatedly risk loss of soul to Lucifer’s plans.  (Click for reviews of Angel Eyes or Broken Wings)

Continuing where BROKEN WINGS left us,  Jake is missing—captured by the demon Damien. He is soon joined by Olivia and Marco—and Canaan’s halo. Damien wishes to use the halo for his own purpose, but it weakens him.

Desperate with fear over Jake’s disappearance, Brielle and Kaylee set off to find him following communication from God’s Throne Room. The rescue is botched, however, allowing Damien to take Brielle and Jake to Danakil, site of a long ago battle between Lucifer and God’s host.

A sulphrous salt desert, Danakil is otherwise known as Hell on Earth. Canaan arrives to reclaim Jake, but cannot take Brielle until she has endured Lucifer’s temptation. Lucifer doesn’t want her soul…he wants her to wear his dark halo—to drown the Celestial from her vision.

Why not? For Brielle seeing the human fear and Celestial war is exhausting. She cannot even sleep without nightmares—who doesn’t want a good night’s sleep, right?

In the end, Brielle refuses his gift, but Lucifer slips the halo onto her before he disappears. Brielle’s challenge—to exist with the constant emotional overload of Celestial vision, or succumb to Lucifer’s temptation–forms the bulk of the narrative. Jake endeavors to keep Brielle sane, yet her moments of weakness are frequent and consuming.

Marco’s temptation is more personal. He promised to avenge the murder of his girlfriend, Ali. Olivia’s grandfather, Henry, is the man responsible. Among his other sins, Henry is pedophilic and ran a blackmarket baby-selling operation. Seems like a no-brainer to snuff his life, IMHO, but that’s not within God’s plan. And, while Marco isn’t particularly devout, he has learned a thing or three about his soul, thanks to Jake and Canaan.

By uncovering Ali’s story we learn a great deal about Jake’s origins, and the connections between Olivia, Marco, and Brielle’s mother, Hannah. Dittemore’s deft hands build tenuous connections into strong plot lines that engage the mind and heart.

What this story excels at:  revelation of story through multiple view points. The prose is spectacular and the decisions are meaningful and universal. What person out there hasn’t blamed a higher being for mortal woes? Who among us has never felt an overwhelming need for peace, at any cost?

DARK HALO is YA paranormal fiction suitable for all teens and up. The trilogy is enchanting, and a wonderful selection for readers who enjoy faith-based fiction. For myself, I found it to be compelling without feeling preachy.

HOLD TIGHT has Arrived!

HoldTight_Sample1Witches and Faeries and Demons, oh my!

HOLD TIGHT, a fast-paced, YA paranormal romance, runs the gamut from steamy romance to chilling suspense. Cherie Colyer’s sequel to EMBRACE makes one point clear:  paranormal male leads have got it going on! 

As a new witch, Madison needs to learn how to control her powers.

Every time she kisses Isaac the magic within her strikes out. Bam! And folks, electro-shocked lips are NOT attractive.

Unfortunately, with schoolwork, household chores, and caring for her younger brother Chase while dad works, Madison’s practice time is next-to-nil. And she’d like to really kiss Isaac—preferably without the painful burns.

So she steals a spell from Isaac’s book. Just a small one. To summon a helper faerie.

This simple, selfish act unleashes the biggest karmic ass-kicking Madison could have ever imagined.

Poor Madison!

At first she thinks all is okay. A beautiful faerie arrives and cleans her house. Madison even befriends Brea—lending her clothes so she can explore the human realm. But Brea didn’t arrive alone. Her brother Reed came, too. And Reed wants Madison—badly. See, getting Madison to choose him over Isaac would be Reed’s ultimate revenge after their stand-off months before.

Reed’s plan is simple:  trick Madison into consuming addictive Fae food and then yank her off to the Faery court…forever. Fighting off Reed’s advances requires all of Madison’s strength and Isaac’s ingenuity.  But, Reed didn’t settle for a single-front attack, he’s tempting Chase as well. Madison realizes this just before crashing the family car and injuring Chase. In desperation, Madison enlists the aid of a crossroads demon to save her brother’s life.

Reed’s seduction of Madison escalates and her coven’s attempts to expel him are fruitless. Will Madison have no choice except to leave her family and love behind?

By holding tight to those she loves, Madison develops the strength to defeat Reed.

HOLD TIGHT is out TODAY!

Behold ANTIGODDESS

Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)Had a bit of a mind blow  when I encountered this sentiment:  Immortal does not mean eternal.

Truly, there are subtleties to the words. Immortal means to not die, to not be liable to death, whereas, Eternal means forever existing. But if something doesn’t die, it’s eternal, right?

No. If it was created, it can be uncreated.

And, it turns out, the pantheon of Greek gods was created. Who knew?

So, why am I waxing all philosophical about the shades of difference between immortal  and eternal?

Simple.

Got meself an ARC of ANTIGODDESS, due out September 10th, Book One in the The Goddess War series by Kendare Blake—so I read it.

Definitely liked it.

What’s it about, you wonder?

Greek gods living–or I should say dying–in the here and now.

I see you over there shaking your head and wagging that pointy appendage. Yes, you, you beady-eyed provincial!  Of course, contemporary mythology is an oxymoron.

Gimmick, you say? Point well taken, but–gimmick or no–this YA yarn tracking the end of the Titans is a stellar read.

This multi-viewpoint adventure tracks sibling gods, Athena and Hermes, as they endeavor to discover what force of the universe is killing them. Athena’s choking on owl feathers developing within her body. Hermes is ravaged by a steady fever. Both retain some of their god-like powers–strength, wit, speed—but each are diminished. The key to their survival seems to be held by a teen psychic, Cassie—the reincarnation of Cassandra of Troy—whom they must find. Only Cassandra can foresee how to defeat the enemy gods who wish to finish Athena and Hermes off prematurely.

Cassandra wishes she knew why her visions don’t extend past her 18th birthday. Will she be alive, or will her powers simply expire? What she does know is she loves Aiden, but their relationship falls into serious jeopardy when she learns his epic past. Is he even human?

This book ends with a solid battle and more than one god bites it. I would not call it a happy ending—but it is a satisfactory resolution. Throughout we get an imaginative look at Odysseus, Apollo, Poseidon, Hera, Aphrodite, and the stage is set for Book Two—no question.

I loved how each god had his/her own unique mannerisms. Athena–goddess of war and wisdom–is naturally austere, and totally fashion unaffected. Meanwhile Hermes–messenger of the gods and god of thieves–is a creature of comfort and has no qualms stealing the best clothes, food or lodgings on their travels.

Though this is YA I really found the sexual tension between Athena and her favored hero, Odysseus, to be interesting. ANTIGODDESS is clean as a whistle and age-appropriate to young teens, so I wonder how this attraction will play out in the coming books.

And now I’m wondering how to get me a copy of the next book…

Look for ANTIGODDESS in bookstores September 10th or pre-order at the usual places.

Upon reviving her from unconsciousness, Pierre realizes she doesn’t remember her past at all.The girl struggles to recall anything from before she may have tried to commit suicide, not only once but possibly twice. The few glimpses into her life are discovered through dreams that can only suggest her past was horrific and jaded by intense anger.

The girl, Félicité Moreau, must decide if the life she desires is enough to make things from her past right. Pierre struggles to resolve if Félicité means enough to him that he will fight for her, regardless of her past and despite his own personal demons.

Excerpt:
“A rush of sweet warmth flooded Félicité for having remembered something about her past. The heaviness in her mind and heart seeped free from her as though it pushed itself from all of her pores. She knew that eventually everything—her memories and knowledge—would come back.
She ached for Pierre and Hélène to know her name. As fast as her legs could carry her, she sped into the living room. Pierre was sound asleep, chest rising and falling in a rhythm that followed his thunderous snores. He was so loud she found it difficult to remember why she had come to see him. However, she couldn’t bear to wake him.
She observed that the light shining through the gap of the curtains came from only the moon. It must be the middle of the night. It was difficult for her to believe that she had slept all day and into the night.
Gazing at Pierre, she noted how handsome he was even in his thunderous slumber. She wanted to touch his skin and the rough stubble of hair growth on his face. His hand that fell from the couch beckoned her to him. She resisted the urge to take it into hers, feel it, relish its rough texture, and press it to her face. Again, she felt as if she had known him for a long time.
Should she wake him to hear his welcoming, deep and vibrating voice?
No, she thought as her euphoria faded. All that was left was a lump in her throat.
Her happy news would have to wait until morning. With one last look at the most kind-natured and loving person in the world, she shuffled her feet back to bed. However, before she fell asleep, she distinctly heard her father’s voice in the room telling her, “Félicité, my daughter, I love you. I love you so much.”
She bounded out of bed like an animal pouncing on its prey and flipped the light switch. Scanning the room, she saw no one in there. She was alone.”

The Inheritance

A New Adult Series

By: Olivia Mayfield

THE INHERITANCE- Olivia Mayfield

The Will (Book One of Six)

Maggie Willings knew that returning home for her estranged grandfather’s funeral would not be easy, but she never expected the reading of his will to be the most difficult part. The four people named in the will—Maggie, her brother Robert, her ex-boyfriend Andrew, and her grandfather’s far-too-young girlfriend Bethany—are given a challenge: find out the truth about what happened to Maggie’s younger sister Cassandra, who vanished over eight years ago, and win the entirety of the estate.

Maggie is thrown by the strange request, reluctant to drag up painful memories of her sister’s disappearance, and bothered by her lingering attraction to Andrew, who wants to team up to solve the mystery. But there are ten million dollars on the line and Maggie has no idea where to start—or who she’ll be able to trust.

Make-up artist to the stars. The favorite aunt. Dance teacher. Baby sister. Talented musician and song-writer.


Single.

Why did that word rank above the rest? Helen loved her family and understood they wanted her to have the real love they’d all found. It’s just that she’s found her someone special and learned to live without him. She’d been too young for the quirky, idealistic doctor-off to save the world-to notice. And, really, if she had it her way, he’d never know how she’d felt. Now, he was one of her best friends, a pen pal, losing him would be too much.
Seeing him at their parents wedding, Helen realizes the horrible truth: she still loves Joseph… which wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t in the situation she was in.

Flying With BROKEN WINGS

Broken WingsBrielle Matthews has learned seeing the handiwork of God’s creation can be a bit overwhelming.

BROKEN WINGS, the second in the Angel Eyes trilogy by Shannon Dittemore, returns Brielle to the role of heroine. (See my review of ANGEL EYES here)

Picking up six months after ANGEL EYES, Brielle, Kaylee and Jake have just graduated high school. Stratus is celebrating the opening of a new community center, spearheaded by Kaylee and funded by Olivia Hart’s foundation.

Brielle knows something isn’t right about Olivia–Canaan’s halo burns hot whenever she comes near, but Brielle’s even more unsettled by her father’s behavior. Seems Olivia brings out the alcoholic in her dad.

Coupled with her Celestial vision–Brielle observes Angels and Demons within the human realm–she is being haunted by dreams of her mother’s demise. Learning that her mother’s coffin was buried empty is a shock of the first order. Could she still be alive?

And why are Angels circling her home?

Meanwhile, Brielle is affected by the tar-like fear rolling off everyone she meets. It is only in worship and prayer that she sees the fear disintegrate. So why is Jake–the most devout person Brielle knows–sweating fear?

Jake’s love for Brielle shines through his steadfast gaze, yet she is stunned by his fear.  They are meant for each other–God himself gave Jake an engagement ring for her–so, what is he hiding?

In the Celestial realm, Damien has met with Lucifer and revealed his knowledge of Jake and Brielle’s gifts. He is able to garner Lucifer’s interest and secure instructions to collect them in two week’s time. Damien uses Olivia to not only capture Jake and Brielle, but also Canaan’s halo.

See, Lucifer is planning a battle, and Stratus has become Ground Zero.

Despite the bond between Jake and Brielle, doubt remains. Jake’s risky mission to discover his parentage separates them at the absolute WORST time. And, when he doesn’t return, Brielle’s fledgling faith is put to the test.

Again, Shannon Dittemore has spun a beautifully crafted story of love, faith, doubt and keeping our demons at bay. For those who enjoy paranormal fiction, BROKEN WINGS is a fantastic tale. Contemporary themes and realistic emotional content keep this story grounded firmly in the Terrestrial, with eyes to the skies and hope for a safe resolution.

The final story in this trilogy, DARK HALO, will be released next week–so readers won’t have long to wait for the conclusion. (Review for DARK HALO coming soon!)

BROKEN WINGS can be purchased (paperback or eBook) in all the right places…

EMBRACE is Powerful

EmbraceFINALHow can a normal girl escape paranormal enemies?

She can’t.

But, as my Dad never said: “If you can’t beat them….”

In Cherie Colyer‘s EMBRACE, Madison Riley is facing the worst junior year ever.

Her boyfriend moved away, her classes stink, and she has to babysit her little brother all the time. But new-to-school, dreamboat Isaac seems to be interested…Very interested.

Still, it’s hard for Madison to enjoy her new romance when her BFF Kaylee is nearly killed in a car wreck  and then suffers psychotic episodes. No. Something is definitely wrong in Essex County.

Plus, longtime pal Paige is sincerely encroaching on the Isaac Territory.

Madison seems at the end of all things sane when she finally realizes things AREN’T sane. There is no way Kaylee could be so out-of-her-mind that she’s trapped in the psych ward.

Thing is…Madison knows all of this is wrong. And it’s Isaac who clues her in.

Kaylee’s been cursed.

By witches.

See, Isaac knows this because, well, he knows a WHOLE LOT ‘O WITCHY STUFF!

And, perhaps Madison does, too. If she really digs deep Madison might just find out that she’s a force to be reckoned with. It’s a power she needs to embrace.

Good thing for Kaylee, she does.

EMBRACE, a YA paranormal romance, really hits all the notes. Lost loves, New Loves, BFF’s, Teen Angst, and that soul searching feeling that all teens face. Madison takes each step with caution and this makes her a heroine in my eyes because she uses reason and intellect to solve her problems.

There’s a few chances to win EMBRACE for yourself:

Release Date: 10/26/13
Cover Designed by: Steven Novak
Summary from Goodreads:
“Her mouth parted slightly, waiting for Seth to breathe life into her own body, just like in the story. She wanted him to awaken her senses.”


Their worlds collide in California’s high desert.

The last thing Natara “Natti” Stone wants to do is to start anew at Setemple High School. She wished she had never left London. Yet the brutal murder of her maternal grandmother has made her life very complicated. The only clue related to her murder is an ancient, encrypted necklace Natti discovered after her grandmother’s death. And if trying to adjust to American life is not enough, Natti is being stalked by a mysterious, charming high school senior, Seth O’Keefe, who is annoyingly persistent in his attempts at seduction.

Seth O’Keefe is secretly a member of the Sons of Set, an order that worships the Egyptian god of chaos. Seth’s blessing from Set, his “charm,” never failed, except with one person: Natti Stone. Her ability to elude him infatuates and infuriates him, and he becomes obsessed with the chase. But the closer he gets to her, the more his emotions take a dangerous turn, and he risks breaking one of the most valued covenants of his order. The punishment for which is a fate worse than death.

The adventure this unlikely couple becomes engulfed in could cost them their lives and their souls.

*Note: Content for Upper YA*

***Excerpt***
There was a crash and a loud gasping moan. She turned to the door next to her and stepped into the room. Her eyes widened as two entangled bodies jumped in the dark; the light shining from the hall streamed over the couple. She recognized the tall, copper haired upperclassman from the parking lot; the boy who had sent her the enchanting smile. Now he was completely shirtless, his fly clearly unzipped, and a brunette held tight in his arms. The girl glared at Natti. She struggled a little against the boy’s grasp, trying to cover herself with her bra.
Natti blinked in complete shock. “Okay.” She finally glanced at the empty room. “This is obviously not American Literature.”
“No duh!” the brunette snapped.
The young man smiled and turned to the girl in his arms. The brunette’s cold demeanor melted away once her eyes met his. He stroked her cheek, sending visible shivers through her body. Natti rolled her eyes, ready to gag.
“Now, now, Charlotte.” The honey-sweet voice made Natti freeze when she was just turning to leave. It gave her a dizzy feeling; a fog creeping at the back of her mind. “We shouldn’t be rude to our guest.” The boy’s eyes traveled Natti’s curves again. His grin widened.
“Perhaps she’d like to join us. Maybe we can all get to know each other a little better.”
He motioned Natti to come inside. She unconsciously took a step forward; a strange force compelled her to join them. Her hands were reaching to pull her shirt off. It was as if she was no longer in control.
What the hell . . . ? Natti shook her head, finding the strength to resist through a familiar heavy sensation that rested against her chest. It was one she often got when someone lied to her. She was born with it. A gift, her grandmother called it, which could tell her when something wasn’t right. And as much as her body suddenly wanted to be next to the boy, feeling the skin of his lean, muscular chest, her gift was telling her something was off. His intentions were not pure.
She lowered her hands to her side, taking a step back into the hall. “Sorry.” She shook her head. “I don’t do threesomes.”
