Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan

How can love mend a heart full of hate?

Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles where she becomes an outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It seems life cannot be any more dreadful. Then one day after school, something magical happens. On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying vehicles, compete in perilous games for glory, and possess supernatural powers. While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose hatred toward people from Earth is beyond understanding. Yet every time Victor unpredictably saves Molly’s life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how much he tries to fight against it. It further complicates things that their growing friendship is strictly forbidden. Earth people are prohibited in Arkana, yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor. Torn between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is no return and multiple endings.

Fields of Elysium is a suspenseful, romantic tale full of forbidden secrets, unimaginable danger, deception, and the never-ending fight for true love.

Excerpt

(Chapter 8)

“Don’t worry, it won’t hurt at all.” His voice was a gentle breeze, his breath warm and delicious. I licked my lips from an automatic reflex. It must have been a reflex because I’d never do such a thing on purpose. To kiss a boy had never been so alluring to me as it was at that moment. As a matter of fact, kissing a guy held no allure for me before. None whatsoever.

His finger touched my forehead. He was right about the pain; there was none, only a little sensitivity.

Slowly I closed my eyes while my lips parted. I could sense my body leaning toward Victor, as if my common sense was unable to withstand this physical attraction.

Every nerve under my skin surrendered to the touch of his finger and transmitted an impulse of intense yearning to my heart, almost killing me in the process.

My eyes sprang open to see Victor’s longing gaze. All I wanted at that moment was to tell him how I felt. Yet I couldn’t. The words didn’t seem to form in my mouth.

But a little warning voice was also knocking on my head, “You don’t even know him, you crazy fool.”

I tried not to listen, but that split second of hesitation destroyed my chance to kiss him.

Jonathan Lister Crossroads Cover Reveal!

       Monday, April 22, 2013

Crossroads

A Demos City Novel by Jonathan Lister

Release Date: November 4, 2013

Target Reader: Adult, Thriller/SuspenseWerewolf

Back of the Book

Werewolf. Bar bouncer. Dad. Standard traits for any self-respecting, reformed criminal, living under the radar in Demos City. For Leon Gray, normal is what he wants—for himself and his not-yet-changed teenage daughter.

Playing bodyguard to crusading reporter David Hastings would totally ruin Leon’s peace, especially since Hastings has hired killers on his trail, pros who know how he takes his espresso in the morning, and where Leon lives.

The payoff, though, would fill up Shauna’s empty college fund, and in a battle between opportunity and ordinary, money wins. He just has to keep Hastings alive long enough to cash the check.

If only he didn’t have to save his daughter, too.

As a budding wolf, she’s piqued the interest of a local pack Alpha—one Leon knows will steal Shauna right out from under him the first chance he gets.

Leon isn’t about to give up on his daughter or Hastings, and will fight for both longer than it took Demos City to see werewolves as equals to humans.

He can only hope it doesn’t take a thousand years.

He accepted his chosen bride, Alexis, unseen from a house as old as his own. Si ruled and the land prospered for fifteen years while evil silently waited. The King did not know when evil struck it would be personally against him or that the price would be so high. The people of Aztar chose well in their King. Si will not hesitate. The King will pay the price. From his love and chosen path, the Saga of Aztar begins with the legend of her first King, Si Volcum. “Reclaim Aztar,” will be their battle cry.

All in all, Hunted is a very enjoyable read, especially for those who enjoy angel/demon books. This one has everything you want in an angel book while still maintaining its own distinct feel.

~TeresaMaryRose

This series is addictive.

~Author Kate Kaynak

AMAZING! There is not enough words to describe how much I loved Hunted. Ednah Walters has outdid herself if that is even possible.

~Megan McDade

Author Ednah Walters

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy boys mysteries, hence Stratemeyer influence, before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily’s Shutter the Sky) and the rest is history.

I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished my college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn’t enough. So I started to write.

I’ve written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Awakened is the first book in The Guardian Legacy series. I’m working on book 2, tentatively named Betrayed. When I’m not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of 18 years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my series.

Excerpt:

The clang of metal hitting metal pierced the air and mixed with screams, hisses, and screeches. Thuds shook the ground, each like a slap at my psyche.

I tried to move and search for the sources of these sounds, but my body stayed frozen. My arms and mind were at odds too. I tried to reach for my dagger with little result. Frustration roiled through me. My toes curled and sank in the sand, the only proof that I was standing at the beach, that all of this was real. My eyes moved too, thank goodness.

Still, I couldn’t tell where I was or whether the others were with me or not. The shadows pressed heavy on my senses. After months of drawing strength from energies around me, I was being sucked into a hole where nothing existed. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t see a single energy. My fear of darkness returned.

I closed my eyes, resorting to my old way of sensing things. Nothing.

Sighing, I opened my eyes and searched through the darkness for hope, anything. I opened my mouth to call to the others, but either the din swallowed the sound or I couldn’t produce any. Maybe I didn’t even open my mouth.

A movement appeared from the corner of my eyes then something shiny reflected light as it sliced the air. More appeared, the sound of metal against metal growing louder. Squinting, I studied them and realization dawned. There were weapons, swords and daggers thrusting and slicing. A battle raged around me and all I could do was watch, helpless and confused.

Bran? Remy? Sykes? Izzy? Kim? What’s going on? Can you guys hear me?

Once again, my telepathic questions went unanswered. I squinted, trying to see if my friends were among the fighters, but I couldn’t see faces, just silhouettes against a starless sky. Who’s out there? Where am I?

My senses threatened to explode from the echoes of pain and death. Bodies fell from the sky. Something sticky dripped on my arms, my head and face. Blood. Even in the darkness, I knew it. I smelled it. Swallowing, I tried to move again. Somebody help me, I screamed.

Tiny flakes fluttered down from the sky and fell on my head and on top of the bodies on the ground. No, not snowflakes. Feathers. Downy ones and larger ones, like the ones covering Bran’s wings. Guardians were being slaughtered.

Bran? Remy? I called to them again and again, but it was useless.

They are here and you must stop them, a woman’s voice, faint but sweet, broke through the murkiness. With it came light so brilliant I closed my eyes against the glare.

Who? I asked, opening my eyelids and squinting.

The Tribe…. The deafening resonance swallowed the rest of her words, yet I still couldn’t see anything, not the source of the voice or the light.

Tribe? What tribe?

Faint words followed. I strained to hear her with little success. Then her voice grew audible. Fight back or they’ll win again. There was a familiar lilt to it, yet I couldn’t place it. Don’t make my sacrifices be for nothing.

The screams, now jarring chords like a choir singing out of sync, rose again. More dead wingless bodies floated to the ground, arms flailing, the thud as they landed on the ones already on the ground sickening. I watched helplessly as a black hole appeared on the ground and sucked them away. It beckoned to me, offering solace and refuge. Just one step and I’d be free of this nightmare. Just one step.

So, what do you think? 🙂


An interview with HUNTED author Ednah Walters

HUNTED  (book #2 The Guardian Legacy series)

Hunted (The Guardian Legacy, #3)
Bran and Lil may have escaped an attempt to lure Lil to the dark side, and recovered the contracts damned people signed with Bran when he was a soul collector, but someone forgot to tell them that no one switches sides or cancels contracts without consequences.
Hunted by an unknown but powerful enemy, Lil, Bran and the Guardians must seek help from unlikely sources  to avert total annihilation of the Guardians. When they finally face their enemy, one of them may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

About the Author:

Ednah is the author of The Guardian Legacy series, a YA fantasy series about children of the fallen angels, who fight demons and protect mankind. AWAKENED, the prequel was released in September 2010 with rave reviews. BETRAYED, book one in the series was released by her new publisher Spencer Hill Press in June 2012 and HUNTED, the third installment, will be released April 2013. She’s working on the next book in the series, FORGOTTEN.


Ednah Walters will now take your questions:

Thanks for having me.

Q. Great to have you! Can you tell us about your story?

The Guardian Legacy series is about teen Guardians, part human and part fallen angels children, who fight demons.

In HUNTED, Lil, my main character, is concerned with erasing her boyfriend Bran’s evil past by canceling the contracts he’d signed when he worked for a demon. What she and her friends don’t realize is there are consequences to canceling contracts and someone will have to pay.

Q. How did you come up with the idea?

The entire Guardian Legacy series idea started with the kris dagger. Once I learned about how Malays and Indonesians believed it had special powers, I wrote my series around it. As for Hunted, the idea for the villain came from an episode of Supernatural. I love Dean and Sam Winchester

Q. What’s your main character’s greatest strength, biggest flaw?

Lil’s greatest strength and flaw is loyalty. Once she believes someone deserves her loyalty, she’d do whatever it takes to help and defend them. It gets her in some very crazy spots.

Q. What is the hardest part of writing for you?

Plotting. I hate to plot, yet I must to some degree.
Q. What one question do you wish an interviewer would ask you but never has?

How come you don’t have your pictures anywhere online? LOL.

Q. A-hem, camera shy? I actually wondered about that! What are you working on now? Do you tend to work on multiple projects or one at a time?

I’m working on the next GL story, FORGOTTEN.

I’m also working on a new series, RUNES. Book 1 will be released May 20th, and I’m working on book 2.

I’m also working on an adult romance since I write contemporary romance under E. B. Walters.

 I multi-task with the best of them.

Q. Nice! What is your favorite line from this book?

“Yours always, mine forever.”

Lil and Bran just made their vows in the spur of the moment and exchanged them while dangling in mid-hair. Well, not exactly dangling. He was flying with her in his arms. Then he decided they didn’t need rituals to claim each other. They had the elements as their witnesses.

Q. Did you always want to be a writer?

No, I wanted to be a chemist at some pharmaceutical lab, making new drugs.

Q. So, you’re a science girl? Awesome. Was there any part that you struggled with or avoided writing?

Fight scenes…nightmare to write

Q. What are you reading right now? Do you read a book at a time or more than one?

I wish I had more time to read. I’m reading a fellow Spencer Hill Press author’s book. Finn Fannigan.

Q. What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Any hobbies?

I’m a serious zumba dancer. It’s how I stay sane and stay balanced.

 
Q. What was your favorite book/who was your favorite writer as a teen?

Nancy Drew series

Q. Who is your favorite writer now?

Cassandra Clare

Q, What is the best young adult book you’ve read so far in 2013?

Kelly Hashway’s Touch of Death
Q. What do you see emerging as the next big trend in young adult literature?

Contemporary romance. My agent told me and she’s always right.
Q. Have you ever wanted to quit writing? Why? What made you keep going?

Oh yes, I’ve wanted to quit. When those rejection letters kept coming, I wanted to quit. When my sells are pitiful, I want to quit, but you know what, writing is like reading and I’d shrivel up if I didn’t write or read.

Q. If you could have a career besides being an author, what would it be?

Cosmetologist

That’s awesome! Thank you so much for being here today! Its been great to have you 🙂

January Black Book Blast and Blog Tour Giveaway!

January Black

Sixteen-year-old genius Matty Ducayn has never fit in on The Hill, an ordered place seriously lacking a sense of humor. After his school’s headmaster expels him for a small act of mischief, Matty’s future looks grim until King Hadrian comes to his rescue with a challenge: answer a question for a master’s diploma.

More than a second chance, this means freedom. Masters can choose where they work, a rarity among Regents, and the question is simple.

What was January Black?

It’s a ship. Everyone knows that. Hadrian rejects that answer, though, and Matty becomes compelled by curiosity and pride to solve the puzzle. When his search for an answer turns up long-buried state secrets, Matty’s journey becomes a collision course with a deadly royal decree. He’s been set up to fail, which forces him to choose. Run for his life with the challenge lost…or call the king’s bluff.

Praise

Refreshingly intelligent and loads of fun!

I lost a few hours as I read this book. It’s a Young Adult novel that is refreshingly and astonishingly intelligent, and the love story is perfectly played out.

~Christine Ashworth, Amazon Review

The mystery was intriguing – I loved how Wendy Russo weaved in all her secrets throughout the book, how she incorporated just enough to keep you reading, while never actually divulging much of anything. I was guessing for most of it and that’s pretty hard to make me do.

~Julie, Clean Teen Reads

Wendy Russo has created a masterpiece.

~Ivan Amberlake, Author
Book Trailer

Author Wendy S. Russo

Wendy S. Russo got her start writing in the sixth grade. That story involved a talisman with crystals that had to be found and assembled before bad things happened, and dialog that read like classroom roll call. Since then, she’s majored in journalism (for one semester), published poetry, taken a course on short novels, and watched most everything ever filmed by Quentin Tarantino. A Wyoming native transplanted in Baton Rouge, Wendy works for Louisiana State University as an IT analyst. She’s a wife, a mom, a Tiger, a Who Dat, and she falls asleep on her couch at 8:30 on weeknights.

Blog Tour for Silent Echoes, book 2 in the Games of Zeus series

Silent Echoes

Silent Echoes (Games of Zeus, #2)

I love this cover. It’s sort of mysterious and creepy!

Games of Zeus

by Aimee Laine

Release Date: March 11, 2013

Keywords: Paranormal Romance, Romance, Thriller/Suspense

Description

For years, Ian Sands has enjoyed his life as a bachelor, taking advantage of singlehood and exploring his own definition of passion—whoever she may be. Blonde. Brunette. Tall. Short. Hot. Not. Five months ago, all that changed.
Ian’s been celibate, frustrated and desperately seeking answers to why one woman, who doesn’t play by girls’ rules, haunts his every waking moment.
As a renovations specialist, Taylor Marsh lives, works and breathes construction—a profession her southern belle of a mother would rather Taylor not touch. The same goes for Ian; Mama Marsh would never approve of him.
Like Ian, though, each time he and Taylor draw near, something compels her to get closer.
Something else tells her to run away.
Fast.
As much as their histories suggest they shouldn’t be together, neither Taylor nor Ian can deny the pull, and the two succumb, indulging in a relationship that brings pleasure to body, mind and soul.
Doing so, though, also ushers in a series of events both should have foreseen as well as one final outcome neither expected.

 ***

Excerpt

The sledge hammer circled through the air, whipping around Taylor Marsh’s head. Wood splintered. Fragmented pieces shot off like shrapnel.
With another heave, she drew the tool over her shoulder, and with one step, swung with every bit of force she could muster.
Decades-old siding crumpled under her attack of the shed.
A deep breath and a growl preceded the stretch of her arms and the twist of her body as she propelled herself forward again.
The weighted head hit first, yanking the tool from her sweaty palms and throwing Taylor sideways. On an ‘oomph’, her chest, arms and cheek kissed the red clay of southern North Carolina soil.
Taylor pushed up to her elbows, twisted toward the old shed she’d vowed to tear down and sighed. She sat, ran a hand through her failing hair, where blonde streaks had turned brown, and resecured the tail at the nape of her neck as sweat dripped from her brow.
Despite its age, several of the shed’s planks remained standing—a testament to construction of years gone by.
“One old building to go, and it wants to stay upright longer than the Titanic.”
Beyond the mess, her home stood—a white, clapboard bungalow she’d renovated herself.
“Okay. One more time.” With the sun high in the sky and bearing down upon her with the force of the coming summer, she stood. “It’s no bigger than a kid’s play house. This shouldn’t be so hard.”
Taylor positioned her feet at the front corner, spreading them to give herself a wide base. “Right. One hit to the figurative solar plexus.” She nodded as if the pile would respond. The crunch of a car’s wheels on gravel made her turn. She faced the Jaguar as it rolled to a stop.
Two very recognizable men stepped from within the vehicle. Their long strides spoke of power and confidence, the smiles suggested warmth, and the punch one gave the other—playfulness.
Taylor brushed off grime from her jeans, tapped her boots against the ground and wiped a hand across her brow. “Like that’s going to help.” Giving up on her attire, she headed toward them, leaving her pile of work for later. “Hey, Tripp.” She took his extended hand, gazing again at the tattoo on his neck she’d found so intriguing the first time they met. “Ian.” Taylor switched her hand-held welcome toward the man who did more to her libido than anyone she’d ever met.
He held up his hands, palms out, bejeweled right ring finger glinting in the sun.
“Afraid of a little dirt?” She let her true southern come out, even added a bit to the tone as she spun the only ring she owned around her fourth finger—nothing like the ostentatious, gaudy, show-offy thing Ian wore.
“No. But you’re a … more … I got a flight to New York in an hour,” Ian said.
Tripp chuckled. “Why don’t you have a crew come knock that thing down?”
Taylor glanced back at the small shed. “What fun would that be?”

Comments

“With the turn of every page Mrs. Laine captures your attention. She has entwined a beautiful romance within the mystery and intrigue. ” — Katherine Skye (Reader)

“This was a fun story that kept me entertained and had just enough romance, paranormal and mystery to balance it all out.” — My Guilty Obsession

“This is the type of book you simply can’t get out of your mind.” — Known to Read

“… a pretty fast paced and enjoyable read.” — Gizmo’s Reviews

“Reincarnation, lost love, deceit, jealousy, murder, hot steamy – this book has it all. ” — Terri Rochenski, Author Pool of Souls Series

“With a well crafted plot, very well done characters, and plenty of mystery to keep things on the edge, Silent Echoes is one of those stories that weaves the reader in and keeps a tight hold.” — Long and Short Reviews

About the Author:

Aimee is a romantic at heart and a southern transplant with a bit of the accent (but not a whole bunch). She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and with him, she’s produced three native North Carolinians, two of whom share the same DNA.

With an MBA and a degree in Applied Mathematics, there’s absolutely no reason she should be writing romance novels. Then again, she shouldn’t need a calculator to add two numbers, either … but she does.

*Note: This is an adult paranormal romance.

Sounds like a great read, doesn’t it? I love all things mythological!!!
