Cover Reveal Dracian Legacy

Ren and Axel are caught between two powerful magical races: one destined to end the bloodshed, the other out for vengeance.
Seventeen-year-old Ren Pernell is prophesied to end the war between the Dracians and the Telalians. So when a Dracian, Axel Knight, is sent to find and bring back the prophesied one before she turns eighteen and Telalians discover of her existence, unexpected sparks start to fly between the two. Once Ren finds the truth behind Axel’s arrival, she wants everything to do with him and nothing to do with his mission.
Things prove to be difficult as Ren’s life is constantly threatened by forces that are beyond her control, including the leader of the Telalians.
With the clock ticking and Ren’s life in jeopardy, it is no longer just a mission for Axel. It becomes a personal endeavor to save the only one he’s ever loved. In a heart racing ending, they must find a way to evade the preordained war that won’t also end Ren’s life.

Sins of the Fallen

RELEASE 12/11/12

I had the chance to ask Hunter from The Academy of the Fallen series to tell me about this book.  This is what he had to say:


   I knew how much Kayla had changed over the past few weeks, but it was nothing compared to what I had seen in her from the moment we stepped into this place. The Kayla from before she learned about this world, was gone. She was already attached to some of their kind and I could see that she felt as if it was her responsibility to protect them all, the haunted and the fallen. She was starting to put them before her in every decision she made. It started sometime before we left the Academy where her father is in charge. After her incubus half-brother and his allies attacked the Academy, we managed to leave and take shelter here. Only, everything about this place is completely different. Many of the beings that live here have earned back the privilege of being full-blooded angels. Well, some say that is a privilege; others see it as a curse. Either way, the place itself had already started to become my very own curse. From the moment Kayla stepped foot in this place, I could see her change complete faster and faster. This Academy was giving her the confidence to be who she was meant to be, and deep down, I knew it was only a matter of time before I would no longer be needed in her life. It may sound selfish, but as Kayla started her journey to save those who were left behind, I was fighting for her. I was fighting to be worthy of a Nephilim.

Thorne Interview - Enlightened

Thorne interview

Rebecca Kazaku - Freelance Reporter - Paranormal Talk

When Thorne came into the room, I had to remind myself not to stare with my mouth open.  He asked to meet at Trent River Coffee, one of Jessie’s favorite places.  His long-sleeved black thermal was hugging him, and leaving little to the imagination.  I swear I could see the brightness of his grey eyes from across the room.  He flashed me a crooked grin as he approached my table.
After a few minutes of introductions and coffee orders, he relaxed and leaned back in his chair, balancing it on the rear legs.

Where’s the strangest place you’ve lived?  

I had an assignment with a homeless guy in Denver, Colorado.  We lived in boxes we kept hidden behind dumpsters at the big box store.  Did I mention it was below freezing most nights?  It was a six month assignment.

That sounds horrible, did you dumpster dive for food too?

In the beginning, yes we did.  I eventually bought a prepaid credit card and let him believe someone gave it to me for us to eat.

I thought you aren’t allowed to lie.

I didn’t lie, I omitted the truth.

That statement could get you in a little trouble with the female readers.

No, it wasn’t something that would harm him or hurt his feelings, I wanted to help him.

Speaking of female readers, the burning question is….have you ever been in love?

I live a life that gets in the way of relationships.  I dated a girl for about a year but she broke up with me because of my job.  She was human, and didn’t like the long spells of no communication.  I don’t believe we were IN love, but we were fond of each other.

Guilty pleasure? 

I love to go to the midnight showing of a movie that’s been anticipated for a long time. 

What is one of those movies?

The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence made a perfect Katniss.

Favorite TV show?

I love Sons of Anarchy.  That show has a lot of shoot-‘em-up scenes.  I watch each show about three times before erasing off of my DVR.

Are vampires real?

I’m not allowed to discuss the possibilities of other supernaturals.

Okay, everyone wants to know…what’s going on with you and Amber?

She’s a spitfire for sure.  As a guardian, it’s my priority to protect my charge.  It wouldn’t be fair to neglect a relationship with someone like Amber, she deserves better than that.

Do you have feelings for Jessie?

As in feelings, feelings?  No!  Of course not, she is my assignment.  I hold her friendship in high regard.  I don’t think Caleb would be too keen about me taking his girl. 

Thorne leaned forward, scooting his coffee out of the way.  The smoldering look on his face almost stole my breath.

When a woman is slated to behead you, it takes away the attraction.  He broke out in a deep laugh that made my head spin.

Good point.  Okay, here’s the final questions, answer the first thought to your head.

Color - red
Song - Ho Hey
Food - Pasta
Place - bed
Book - The Lightening Thief
Season - Summer
Holiday - Halloween

Thank you for meeting me today.  I’m sure you have to get back to your guardian duties.  We said good-bye and I watched him as he walked away.  I literally swooned.

Jessie Lucente, a Light Tamer, has started her junior year at Parca Academy in New Bern, NC. She has a new boyfriend, Caleb Baldwin. He is beyond good looking, he is her mate for life. They've been bound by the light and will rule and heal with it too. Her new classes aren't what she expected. Finding out the school is filled with 'gifted' kids is almost too much to comprehend. She finds out what it really means to be a Light Tamer. Some of the assumptions she had are debunked and now everything is crystal clear...well, clear as mud. Now that she is enlightened with the facts, she struggles with the truth.

Thorne Woodson has all of the girls swooning. His Doc Martens and hoodie stand out against his school uniform. He might be the guy to heal Amber's broken, grieving heart. What's his story, and why does he appear everywhere Jessie is? He has a secret that will change the game for everyone. Who is he in cahoots with?

Amber starts her junior year with a bang and a huge crush. She has a point to prove on the first day of school. She refuses to let everyone believe she went soft over summer break. Her shenanigans end with detention on the first day. The anniversary of her brother's death has her making dumb decisions but her friends have her back. Jessie will struggle to help Amber deal with the grief.

The secrets that have been revealed by Fate will leave Jessie in a new role. It will all come down to bloodline versus logic. She must step up and embrace her new title, and life on the other side of the shimmer. With her small army together, they promise to vanquish Nyx back to the Underworld and seal the portal she came through.

The second book in The Light Tamer trilogy will answer the questions that are burning in your head. A beautiful tale of first love and friendship. Be prepared to be amazed at the twist in this story. You didn't see it coming, but you'll be glad it did!

Review Accordance Shelly Crane

Accordance (Significance, #2)Accordance by Shelly Crane
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not going to leave a long drawn out review. I want to say that as I read this book, it clicked - I knew why it is such a loved series. I loved Significance, and I loved Accordance.

I enjoyed Maggie's brother Bish - I don't know why, but I really thought he was funny. He reminded me about how some of my guy friends would have been if I was in the same situation as Maggie.

I can't wait until the movie comes out so I can see the 'ribbons'

A great series with loveable characters.
