MY REVIEW
Sun Poisoned (The Sun Shine Series) Book#2 is a mysterious journey through the twist and turns of the life of Sunshine. Sun Poisoned picks up where book 1 left off, with Sunshine picking up the pieces from  the physical and emotional pain that had been her life. She has healed and living with her friends and Myles in New York city. Playing her music, Sunshine appears to now be living the dream. Although even at the very beginning, there appears to be a cloud marring the happiness of life, with the nightmares that have begun to come back to torture Sunshine. Things pick up, and the bottom drops out as the story progresses, with the secrets  beginning to weave their lies into Sunshine’s reality, straining the relationships in her life. I will say that the ending was a mouth dropping event and now I have been placed on pins and needles, wondering with nail-biting intensity, what will happen? Will everything, or anything be okay? What of my favorite couple?
I enjoyed Sun Posioned as much the first, the author has done a phenomenal job at taking a character who is hurt and broken in many places, and giving her such an inner strength, its astounding to witness and very inspirational. Also the fact that the strength of this character so far in the series is not due to any paranormal ability, but through  Human resilience. Sunshine, is an incredible young lady, that with the love of her family, friends and the desire not to be a victim, overcomes many of the challenges that had been thrown her way. Nikki Rae, deals with many intense subjects with a gentle hand, and I love that regardless of all the ugliness that has occurred in Sunshine’s life, she still has the ability to create beauty through her music. Because she is a fighter and will not allow who she is at the core to be stolen, by Human or Vampire predators.
The book had a very steady, poetic flow, that keeps the reader interested and looking forward to the next chapter. Of course with the cliffhanger I am on edge and very much looking forward to the third book in the series!
I fully recommend Sun Poisoned to those who enjoy Paranormal reads. The rating is for Older Teens through Adults for some intense imagery.

Welcome Vampire Elite by Irina Argo! (Goddess Fish Virtual Tour!)


VBT-Vampire-Elite-BannerHello Everyone! Today I am one of the host for the Vampire Elite by Irina Argo virtual tour! (Presented by Goddess Fish Virtual Tour)

VAMPIRE ELITE

By

Irina Argo

sexy coupleBLURB:  

 

Can the ultimate choice be made if saving your race means destroying the one you love?

At the beginning of the twenty-first century of our era a millennia long war between two immortal races was coming to an end. The Vampire Elite, the strongest among vampires, forced the race of immortal beings, the Amiti to become their blood suppliers, called bloodstock, locking them in their underground cells and treating them like livestock. The surviving free Amiti make a final attempt to strike back. The Queen of Amiti is proclaimed a traitor and is executed. Her death signifies the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna who becomes the last hope of her dying race. Arianna totally embraces her mission and is ready to fight for her people to the last drop of her blood but encounters an unexpected challenge—the vampire King Tor. They both are captured into a trap of love where they had to make an ultimate choice; to kill the loved one or to let their races die.

Vampire Elite is the epic story of a bitter conflict between two peoples, and the effect of that conflict on everyone living in its grip. The characters are driven to love and betrayal, vengeance and sacrifice in a world without easy black-and-white answers.

Based on an ancient Egyptian legend, packed with action and intrigue, Vampire Elite will pull you into the entrancing world of immortals and open new portals into their hidden universe.

EXCERPT ( Rated Mature)

(Oberon is captured. Anock is interrogating him)

 “I can’t do that, Anock.”

“Oh, but you can. You don’t want this female to die, do you?”

“No, I don’t, and I appeal to your mercy, Anock. You can spare her life; it’s your choice as much as it is mine. More than mine. I will not give the Keepers up. There’s nothing that you can do that will change my mind.”

“Yes, Oberon, you will. At the count of three. One.”

“I am so very sorry.” Oberon glanced at the woman. She held her head down, but her shaking shoulders betrayed that she was crying. “There is nothing I can do for you. The Keepers are the only Amiti’s hope, I cannot give them up.”

Please Goddess, kill me. Spare me from having to make this choice.

* * *

Two!” Anock was bluffing. He had no intention of letting the woman die. It was a test of wills.

“Please, Anock. You’re a warrior, not a butcher. How can you reduce yourself to this level? Torture me, kill me, do whatever you want, but please, don’t waste her life.”

Anock looked one last time at the Amiti.

This is so wrong.

 Three!

Blade’s sword hissed through the air, slicing through the female’s neck. Her head hit the floor and rolled toward the cage, lifeless jade-green eyes staring into Anock’s soul. It took a few seconds for the body to collapse to the floor.

The hysterical screams of the other Amiti filled the room.

Anock stared, transfixed, at the lifeless eyes.

Cara’s eyes. Oh Goddess.

“Take the bloodstock to her cell and clean the place up,” he ordered, his voice and brain totally disconnected, and left.

REVIEW

Vampire Elite was a fascinating read! Oh my goodness  I loved the fresh, unique spin on the vampire story. Thrilling due to the wondrous world that the authors created with a mix of the traditional sprinkled with a touch of Egyptian mythology, made for an awesome ride!

Now there are multiple characters, with their individual story lines converging, but to me this made for an exciting adventure:)

Well written, fast paced, whenever a down time appeared, there was still information to keep the story moving forward.

I recommend for those that  enjoy Paranormal,Fantasy and Adventure stories. Now I would RATE MATURE for Sexuality and Fantasy Violence.

Welcome Dark Whiskey by Emma Meade! (Review)


emma meadeHello Everyone! Today I would like to share my thought on a excellent read:) I am hosting Dark Whiskey: A Short Horror Story by Author Emma Meade!

About this author
Emma Meade writes paranormal fiction.

She lives in rainy Ireland and loves all things supernatural. Stephen King’s The Stand is one of her most loved books and she’s lost count of the number of times she’s read L.J. Smith’s trilogy, The Forbidden Game.

Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on.

She is not ashamed to admit that Dirty Dancing and Twilight make her top ten movie list but wishes to point out that The Last of the Mohicans, Reality Bites, Dead Poets Society, Stand by Me and The Goonies are in there too.

Writing supernatural stories & watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favorite ways of escaping reality.

Dark Whiskey: A Short Horror Story by Emma Meade

darkwhiskey-682x1024

Amazon

Jesse senses something off about the nightclub. She wants to leave, but her best friend, Tasha, is determined to have a night to remember. There’s no way she’s turning down an invite to the VIP section.

Against Jesse’s better judgement, she follows Tasha up the ivory staircase to the mysterious room above. The whiskey and champagne are flowing, and pretty soon the blood will be too.

 

My Thoughts

Dark Whiskey was a tasty morsel that left me wanting more:O)

Following the tale of  small town girls Jesse and her friend Tasha, who stray far from their hick town of Bishop Grove to travel far and away to the big city to a ultra chic night club. There to help her friend Tasha to climb out of her slump and unhappiness over being dumped. Jesse attempts to support Tasha by hanging in  at the posh spot, although Jess begins to get a sever case of the heebie jeebies about the club:)

Something’s not quite right…

Fast forward both girls are invited to the VIP section, where Jess noticed that regular folks were hob-nobbing , with some of the most gorgeous, posh men and women, that Jess had ever seen. Unnaturally beautiful, these individuals caused Jess to be very uncomfortable with her instincts on high alert. In her heart Jess knew that something was not right about the club. Even after meeting Eli the very handsome owner, who plied Jess with attention, giving her whatever she desired from her favorite drink, to playing her favorite song back from when she was younger. Nevertheless, with a part of her screaming “get out”, Jess tried unsuccessfully to get Tasha to follow suite, and then as the nights events unfold, Jess regrets not following that inner voice.

I do not wish to spoil the ending, due to this being  a short read,but I will say that I enjoyed Dark Whiskey   immensely. One of my favorite quotes from the story was when in describing her friendship with Tasha, Jess says

“She was the yin to my yang, the Thelma to my Louise”.

Loved that. The story had a wonderful moody atmosphere, the VIP room, with its misty white or pale frosty blue theme and glassy bar, tables and walls. was described as an ice palace.

I will say, I know that I am probably not to like Eli, because of let’s say certain developments in the story:) But I really cannot help myself, he has a bit of the wildness that I loved about my first book boyfriend Tristan from Emma Meade’s Night Sighs:) So yep, although the author gave a slight hint at the way things would be at the end, I somewhat wished for a different path for the couple! ( I mean things aren’t set in stone right?:O))

Well written, steady pace, there was not a time I was bored with Dark Whiskey. The anticipation simply grew.

I would love to see these characters again, Jess, and Eli, great read!

Dark, Moody and Seductive, a must read if you enjoy paranormals with a little bite! (,lol okay I could not help myself:)

Book Description:

An unranked angel, Alizel, tells the inside story of the rebellion of Lucifer and the fall of man. Join him as he strolls through Heaven’s gardens, ponders theological questions with other angels, and battles against others who have turned away.

This epic tale will take you from the inner workings of the quark to the interplay between galaxies, from what lies hidden in the soul to the fundamental questions of good and evil.


Praise for Alizel’s Song!

When Pottle told the story of Lucifer and man’s fall he cleverly incorporated modern scientific theory into the biblical creation story.” ~ Carol Peterson, Amazon Reviewer

“Highly recommended for Fantasy Fiction lovers! ”~Rachel Shelley, Amazon Reviewer

“This book captured my attention from page 1, Cannot wait for the sequel. ”~Linda, Amazon Reviewer

Excerpt:

“Now, it is time to train in groups.” Verchiel didn’t waste any time as he continued. He was business-like, efficient. With tens of thousands of angels to train, he could afford to be nothing less.

“Watching the seven on one sparring, I saw all of the groups naturally go into a particular formation. Can anyone tell me what that was?”

One of the angels in a group opposite Alizel raised his hand and spoke. “It was a half-sphere, sir. We surrounded the target on foot while a couple attacked him from above.”

“Yes, that is exactly correct. Yet, I did not direct any of you to make a half-sphere. Why did you do it, then?”

The angel thought for a moment and then responded. “I suppose it just made sense because that was the way we could all get at a piece of him to strike.”

Verchiel nodded, seeming satisfied. “Precisely. The half-sphere is a critical formation for combat. This is the best way to attack an individual. At the same time, it is also the best way to protect an individual or an object. Just as the half-sphere attack pattern makes use of the greatest number of vulnerabilities, the half-sphere defense formation reduces the greatest number of vulnerabilities. The other reason that I made you do the seven on one drill was so you would get the idea of what it feels like to face foes on all sides. This is a feeling I hope you never have to face in combat. If we do the half sphere correctly, then none of us will have to face an enemy coming at us from more than one direction. If one stands…”

“All stand!” the group shouted together.

It was brilliant, and simple. With one drill, Verchiel had not only told the angels what to do, but also let them teach it to themselves. They spent the next several hours practicing all manner of half-sphere drills, forming them of different sizes with different groups of eight. The most common formation and the one that would likely be used in battle was a half sphere that consisted of twenty-four angels on the perimeter and eight on the inside of the half-sphere. Some were standing and some were hovering. The eight on the inside were to serve as backup in case one of the angels on the outside fell. Thus, they were assured that the other forces would not break the formation if only a few angels fell. This formation was to be used on the ground, with all of the angels on the shell facing outwards.

After the half-sphere they worked on the full sphere. The full sphere was just a natural extension of the half sphere, but for when they were airborne. The leader of the sphere was the angel on the inside who would look out and manage the fight on all sides. It was his job to make sure that each point of the sphere was reinforced as efficiently as possible.

Call of Poseidon Excerpt


From The BiaLog (Author C.P. Bialois excerpt from “Call of Poseidon”

The BiaLog

Yeah, I know. I just have to throw the occasional post out there on the weekend. What can I say? I like to do the unexpected. Unless you’ve been following me for a while and know this is what I do and that would be expected then, right?

Anyway, I’m a huge fan of excerpts. To me, they’re like a glimpse into another world without having to get your feet dirty. Today I wanted to share a short bit from my first novel, Call of Poseidon. It’s a fun little adventure involving a cantankerous police detective and a rookie FBI agent trying to locate a conch shell imbued with the power of Poseidon. I hope you like it as much as I do. 🙂
