Synopsis:

Thea, all-mighty Mother Earth, only had one rule to follow above all else, one promise to keep to her brother: never take a human form. She would’ve kept that promise if it weren’t for Brice. He’s handsome and confident, but above all he’s merciless.

He’s also a hunter who has tormented Thea for years. She believes if she could teach Brice compassion, she might finally be able to save her creations and herself from his savage ways. Then she meets Chamber: another hunter.

She soon finds herself fascinated by−and torn between−the two boys: Brice and Chamber. Lost within a torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is as she falls in love with the one thing that she’s always hated: a hunter… a human.

My Review:

This book grabbed my attention right away, I found the story line to be very interesting and unlike anything I have ever read before. Time passed and before I knew it I also almost done with the story. Transformed touched upon love, friendship and respecting the Earth and the all creatures that live on it.

Thea has always lived among the Earth with her brother, but she hasn’t seen him in a very long time. She has been keeping herself busy, while keeping an eye on the Willipords, whom have been tormenting Thea for years by not only killing her numerous times but animals around her. She decides that she needs to teach this family about compassion, but in order to do so she go back on a promise that she made to her brother, and transform into a human for the time being. Thea thought her plan was great, but she didn’t know now that she was human she would be plagued with the emotions, and falling in love was definitely not part of her plan. Thea’s plan was to make the Willipords’ son, Brice, to fall in love with her and show him what compassion really is. Instead Chamber walked into her life threatening to ruin all she had laid out.

Character wise Thea was very easy to like, she had and innocence when it came to the relationships with the other characters. While she was human she was new to all her human emotions, and she has never really done most of the things she was now doing. Chamber was very sweet to her while Brice would call her awkward behind her back. Brice was a very unlikable character; E.V. Fairfall did a great job molding someone who was unlikable and deceitful.

If you are look for a different kind of Paranormal YA book, I suggest you read this one!

AUTHOR BIO:

I love to write just as much as I love to read. I try to read a book per week, which doesn’t always work out, but it’s the thought that counts. Aside from all that I am a huge animal person.

Transformed is my first novel, but it isn’t my first publication; I’ve had several short stories published over the last two years. My main goal as a writer is to explore humanity and to give people something fun to read.

~~SUMMARY~~

Hunted-3D-Paperback-eReader

Book 1: Hunted

Deep in the heart of New York City’s netherworld, a horrible disease is ravaging the vampire community. The VampireCouncil is on a crusade to obliterate those infected, and Harrow Gates is target Number One. The unwitting source of the plague, he suffers from the same nightmarish symptoms as his victims. The world he’d been thrust into was cold, cruel, and intent on eradicating him, and the legions of afflicted vampires he created with his bite.

A bounty hanging over his head, satisfying his hunger has become an enormous challenge for Harrow. The less he feeds, the more hideous and painful his lesions become. Constantly running for his life and learning new tricks to survive, Harrow is in no position to refuse when Pritchard Tack offers him a unique opportunity.

Pritchard not only gives Harrow a new beginning, but also a purpose and a chance to rectify the chaos he created in the vampire world. However, the multi-billionaire has an agenda of his own.

Jordan is a reluctant new vampire and a woman on a mission. After the demise of her family and her own transformation at the hands of Goran, the ruthless leader of the Vampire Council, her only focus is revenge. Constantly faced with one frustrating dead-end after another, a stroke of luck leads her to an underground facility that she suspects is the lair of the monster for whom she is looking.

Upon learning more about the truth behind the secret bunker, Jordan must fight against her growing feelings of friendship and concern for the facility’s inhabitants. One man in particular threatens to pull her heart away from her sworn mission. There is something behind Harrow’s dark lenses that unsettles the hardened female. Once again, she trembles and hungers for something other than red-stained revenge. Is love strong enough to override her hate-fueled thirst for vengeance?

My Review

There is a plague in vampire community, and the Vampire Council will stop at nothing to stop it and that means they are all after, Harrow Gates. He did not know he was the people who started this vampire disease until Pritchard took Harrow in and explained everything to him. Pritchard has taken him in as one of his own; feeding him, going him a place to stay and giving him clothes to wear, but there’s more to Pritchard then he first says and he seems to be hiding something. Then there is Jordan, a girl with an agenda she has made known, kill the man who turned her. This may not be as easy as she thought it would, she now has a friend and has an attraction to Harrow, which she can’t explain.

I haven’t really read many vampire books, to be honest the only one I have read was Twilight. This book was nothing compared to that. Lorenz Font did a great job creating a world that was very vivid and imaginative. It was very interesting to read a story where they explain why and how humans and vampires are different and how they are the same. Also the vampires seemed like humans; they got dirty, showered, they didn’t glitter in the sunlight, and they got sick. I thought that having a disease that was plaguing the vampire community was very interesting!

There were numerous POV and it confused me at times, the change of POV sometimes just happened. There was no indicator on who the POV was on now, it would just switch and I would have to figure out through reading who the story line was now following. Once I got past the confusion, I enjoyed the numerous POV, but still wish there was some sort of warning when the new view came into play.

I really enjoyed reading this novel and I can’t wait to begin reading the second book in the series! I know it will keep me engaged just as much as the first one did!!

~~SUMMARY~~

Book 2: Tormented

Tormented-3D-Paperback-eReaderWithin the Tack Enterprises group of underground fighters, Tor Burns is one of the few non-infected vampires committed to saving his diseased comrades from the vicious clutches of the Vampire Council. He is the meanest, strongest and most impulsive member of the team. Having survived a vicious attack in their underground facility, he now has a new purpose: guard the irresistible daughter of their fallen leader no matter the price. Armed with an abrasive personality and fierce loyalty, Tor approaches this new responsibility with serious determination despite his reservations.

Infected and hunted by the Council, Allison Tack is unable to do as she pleases. A co-heir of the Tack fortune, this beautiful and timid vampire is guarded by those loyal to her father. A walking target wherever she goes, Allison wants to learn how to protect herself, but no one is listening. Sick of being the helpless one in the company of trained fighters around her, Allison vows to prove that she can fight alongside the best of them.

Meanwhile, the harem leader, Melissa, is hell-bent on unraveling any clue about her son Demetrius’ fate. He disappeared without a word, and time has made her desperate. Stepping up her efforts, she seeks the help of Demetrius’ son, Zane. With the additional manpower, Melissa finds the lair of the suspected vampires and wages war against them.

Thrown together by necessity, Tor and Allison can’t continue to deny their attraction to each other. Tor wants to give in to his feelings for her, but old demons resurface. Tormented by a dark secret, Tor must confront the past to prevent losing the best thing that ever happened to him.

A life must be given for a life taken. Will Tor have to sacrifice himself before Allison pays the price?

My Review

Tormented takes place where Hunted left off, Allison, Harrow and the rest of the survivors are morning the loss of their beloved Pritchard Tack.

I didn’t think I would like another book in this series a much as I enjoyed the first book, but Lorenz Font, did a great job with this one as well. There was so much action that kept me guessing and engaged. I loved the new characters that were introduced and development of old characters. It was very interesting to get more of the POV some of the vampires in Goran’s Harlem.

Of course I missed hearing Harrow and Jordan’s story as the bulk of the book, but I enjoyed hearing about Allison and Tor. Finally, seeing Tor’s past to see who he really is and things he went through in the past. WOW!

Jordan and Harrow continued to take on their new parental roles. I adored Gail and the relationships she has with all the people in her family, and she certainly has a BIG one.

Excerpts—HUNTED
#1

The surprise attack rendered Harrow helpless on the ground with his arm locked to the joint, her knee resting on his neck in a chokehold.
“Who are you, and what are you doing here?” Jordan roared, her amber eyes blazing with unspoken fury. Harrow gritted his teeth as he tried to break from her hold. She was strong, he had to give her that, and she’d had the element of surprise on her side. Harrow felt his breath sputter when she pressed her knees harder. He wouldn’t dare strike a woman, but desperate situations called for extreme measures, so he did something he thought might work.
Mustering enough power despite the choking sensation spreading across his body, he moved his hand fast before she could react, and the ball of his palm smacked her right across her forehead in between her eyes. The loud crackle of bone meeting bone resonated in the room, and Jordan stumbled back, her knee releasing Harrow’s neck. With a quick acrobatic move, Harrow jumped to his feet. Jordan recovered at once and poised herself to attack.
They faced off, lips curling back to expose their fangs and their growls reverberating in the small room. They circled, moving from side to side, sizing each other up.
“You’re a lousy people-person,” Harrow said.
He inclined his head to get a better look at her. Eyes fixed on her, he absorbed all that he could as waves of anger rolled off her. She was a few inches shorter than he was, a tall woman with her flaming-red hair tied in a ponytail. Her amber eyes were blistering with fury as she glared at him, not hiding her distaste for his sudden appearance. She was stunning, with her soft features, freckles dusting her face, her small mouth, and full lips that peeled back to expose her fangs and perfect white teeth.

Excerpts—TORMENTED

#1

Allison held onto his neck as tight as she could, and they both fell on the mattress, Tor landing on top of her. She didn’t let go, even though the weight of his body was heavy on her small frame.
“What the hell are you doing?” Tor shouted as he pushed himself up, but Allison locked her legs around his waist, trapping him.
“Doing what I want to do,” she answered and moved her mouth to his. She felt his breath catch in his throat, and a look of terror crossed his face. This reaction was not what she had hoped for, and his rejection hurt.
Tor moved his mouth away like she was offering him poison instead of herself. “You’re insane.” He held her shoulders with restraining fingers before he pushed her body away, despite her resistance. Her strength was no match against his, and he set her aside like a ragdoll, unwanted and rejected.
He stood, his dreadlocks falling over his shoulders. Looking at her with disgust, Tor’s nostrils flared before he stalked out the door, slamming it shut. The silence that followed was deafening. Allison was left stunned and unable to move, her eyes stinging with tears of humiliation.
What had she done?

We’re excited to celebrate the release of SILENT NIGHT by Kristen Strassel!

Author: Kristen Strassel
Age: NA
Genre: Paranormal RomanceCover Designer: Nathalia Suellen

Scheduled to release: November 2014AMAZON

 

“What girl deep down inside doesn’t fall for a good love story?”

Kyndra hasn’t had the best of luck lately, since her grandmother passed away one year ago; she has been kicked out of their old place. She now spends her night between living on the streets, staying at her drug- dealer boyfriend’s house and her best friend from high school’s house. On Christmas Eve she wonders into a mass after having nowhere to go, at least here she might feel a bit closer to her grandmother. While watching all the families passing by a man named Aidan approaches her claiming he knows her. After the mass Aidan brings her to his house for the night, here she finds comfort and safety, but is Aidan really telling her about his true self?

Aidan is an author of novels, but goes under the pen name Alison Duprois, these novels are a memoirs of his life. By documenting his search for the reincarnation of his love for the past three hundred years, he has become a best-selling author. Kyndra has always enjoyed reading Alison Duprois’ novels; she just didn’t know she would end up living one of them.

I feel like if it wasn’t for bad luck, Kyndra would have luck at all. Once Kyndra has a place to stay and decides to get her CNA to get her life in order, she gets fired from her current job. Once Kyndra received a job in a hospital after completing her CNA course she stumbles upon her mom, who has never been part of her life. She is completely torn on how she feels about the situation as well. Also, being in the relationship she is in with Aidan she ends up losing many people she once cared about. Although it may be for the best, it still took a toll on her.

I enjoyed the fact that although this was in the POV of Kyndra we were able to see some thoughts through Aidan’s eyes while Kyndra was reading his novels. I was able to truly get a sense of how he felt and how strong his attraction to her truly was.

I have to admit that do not read many vampire books, this is only my third one and I have yet to fall in love with a vampire character until now! He seemed so very different from all the others that I have read.

Also, I have not read any other novels in the Night Song Collection, but did not interfere with me enjoying this novel. I also hope Kristen Strassel will maybe write from Aidan’s point of view, I know I would really enjoy it!

Catch Me as I Fall

cover53183-medium

Title- Catch Me as I Fall

Author- Vicki Leigh

Publisher- Curiosity Quills Press

Release Date – October 23, 2014

“As Protectors of the night- me a Dreamcatcher and she a Dreamweaver-

we were both sworn to guard humans for the rest of eternity.”

Catch Me as I fall is narrated by Daniel, a 17 year old boy, but he is not a normal 17 year old boy, he died in 1827. For the past 200 years, Daniel has been spending his nights in battles, as a Dreamcatcher, and that means Daniel fights off nightmares from digging into human’s dreams. No, he is not a ghost, he has been given a second life and he can still die and he would just end up in a black void, cease to exist. Daniel has grown a bit tired of fighting these nightmares, he is too burnt out, but things change when he is given a new charge after his current charge passes away.

Kalya is a depressed 16 year old who resides in a mental ward, and this is Daniel’s new charge! There’s something about Kalya that drew Daniel to her and he has never felt this way about anyone before and the nightmares seem to love her too. Daniel will stop at nothing to figure out why the nightmares love her so much and will do anything to protect her, including reveling himself to her.

This was a great book about good vs evil, both Dreamcatchers and Dreamwears would work together to stop the nightmares. I loved how the nightmares were played like a movie as the dreams were, but instead they were creatures. An example of what a nightmare could look like is; a scaly humanoid body, red eyes, and point claws, but all nightmares looked differently.

The story line wasn’t predicable either; there were so many different twists that kept the read interesting! The story also painted a great picture and made me use my imagination, which I love to do!

Blog Tour: Guest Post from T.M Franklin, Review of Twelve and Giveaway!!!

Twelve-Low-Res-Cover

The action-packed conclusion to the MORE Trilogy is here

Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world. It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control.  Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose. Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do. All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to.

My Review

I think by now everyone knows my love for this trilogy, and I am very sad to see it come to an end!

In Twelve, we meet Ava Michaels and she is right where we left her at the Guardian colony. With the threat of Ava’s father, Elias Borré , looming, the guardians need help and resort to working with the council. Together they will need to find the twelve and fight Elias Borré.

The theme throughout the whole book is family, Ava has her biological family, Elias Borre and the Twelve, but she also has the human family who raised her and Caleb. She has all this family and is conflicted throughout the whole story. Ava has a big heart and getting to know some of her brothers and sisters, she wanted to be there for them, but at the same time she couldn’t be there for some. We even see family struggle with Caleb, does he side with his mother or with his father? Can they ever all get along?

The villain in this book, stayed a true villain and I really despised Borre and what he was doing not only to the Race, but also to his, “children”. I truly did not like how he was able to manipulate Emma and treat her the way he did, when she only loved him.

In this last installment, the plot and writing was great, yet again! It was action packed and I never grew bored while reading the story. There were some twists that I did NOT see coming, but like any book there were one or two that as I read, I began to figure. The last one was a bit of a shocker, even though I had a feeling, but it made me wish there was another book!!!!

I’m very sad to say good-bye to this trilogy, but I cannot wait to read for from T.M. Franklin and maybe one day, I will be able to see these characters come to like!!!

A Special Post from T.M Franklin

Free Will or Fate?

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

An ongoing theme throughout the MORE Trilogy is the idea of fate versus free will – destiny vs. choice. Ava learns in The Guardians that her very existence is part of a conspiracy that was in the works before she was born. She was created – genetically engineered – for a purpose, and not one that she is comfortable with. In TWELVE, the third book in the trilogy, Ava comes face to face with her biological father – her creator – and she must decide if she’s going to let his purpose for her life override her own. She also helps her newfound sister answer that question.

“I’m not even sure what I’m supposed to do,” Sophie said finally, her voice almost a whisper.

“What do you want to do?”

Sophie’s gaze sharpened. “Like I have a choice?”

“Of course you have a choice.” Ava planted her feet and faced her sister, a kind of indignant rage simmering up her spine. “Nobody is going to make you do anything,” she said. “You are in charge here. This is your life. It doesn’t matter who your father is or where you came from. Borré may have mixed up some crap in a petri dish, but that is not you.

TWELVE, Chapter 4

Some say that free will is really an illusion – that our past, our upbringing, even our genes, cause us to make decisions subconsciously before we even think about making the choice. Take this excerpt from the book, Free Will:

“My choices matter—and there are paths towards making wiser ones—but I cannot choose what I choose. And if it ever appears that I do—for instance, after going back between two options—I do not choose to choose what I choose. There is a regress here that always ends in darkness.” ― Sam HarrisFree Will

Whoa. If that’s not enough to make you dizzy, I don’t know what is!

As for me, I believe every life has a purpose – or at least, a potential purpose – but we have to choose to fulfill that potential. And thinking about it now, I can see how that belief has bled into my books – whether it be more obvious, in Ava’s case, or more subtle, as it is in some of my other work, like How to Get Ainsley Bishop to Fall in Love with You. In Ainsley, Oliver helps Ainsley to see her own potential, but she has to decide what she’s going to do with it herself.

As for how Ava deals with this challenge, I won’t spoil the story by giving you an answer. Suffice to say that Ava isn’t going to let anyone else determine her destiny. It’s something she will have to figure out for herself.

Just like everyone else does.

My Review of the Marked One

The Marked Son (Keepers of Life, #1)

 

 

This story is set in two different realms; the human realm and the Teag realm. Dylan lives in the human realm, living a life on the go. Dylan’s mother never stays in one place long. She tends to date someone, breaks up with him, and up roots Dylan to a whole new place. This time is different instead of going someone where his mother knows no one; she brings him to her parents’ house. Dylan gets to meet family that he has never know about, and he starts to learn a little more about who his father is, though over hearing different conversations. One day while looking into the woods, Dylan see a girl dressed in white, it was the girl he was dreaming about.

 

Kera lives in a realm called Teag where a group of people called firsts lives, there are not only firsts that live in this realm, but also something called a half-blood, this is a person who is half first and half human. There was a time where firsts were able to cross the barrier between relems, but now the cross between realms should never happen and if one attempts they will not make it and it will cause death, Kera was about to do it! While in the human world, Kera saw the guy she was dreaming about, Dylan. She feels as though he is not human, that he is one of them stuck in the human world. Kera lives in a world that is run by fear by a man named Navar. He uses magic to fear to feed his power. He has been going after half-bloods. She feels as though there is one person who will be able to defeat him, and that is Dylan.

I do not read a lot of paranormal books, but after this one, I think I am going to start reading more of them. The fantasy of a different world grabbed my attention and was able to hold it. In the beginning I was a little confused on what has happening in Teag, the more I read the more I understood. I loved the connection between both Dylan and Kera, but I would have loved to see more of the dreams in the beginning to really see Dylan and Kera’s relationship from the beginning.

I loved seeing the different things that were happening to Dylan before he realized what was really happening, when he was burned by the iron pan, when the fireflies lulled his grandpa to sleep, but not him. I had a suspicion of what was going on but it wasn’t explained right away, which kept me guessing and wanting to find out more.

It was also get to see the character development, there was so much growth within each character, and I enjoyed watching all of the relationships form from beginning to end.

One day while looking into the woods, Dylan see a girl dressed in white, it was the girl he was dreaming about.

Kera lives in a realm called Teag where a group of people called firsts lives, there are not only firsts that live in this realm, but also something called a half-blood, this is a person who is half first and half human. There was a time where firsts were able to cross the barrier between relems, but now the cross between realms should never happen and if one attempts they will not make it and it will cause death, Kera was about to do it! While in the human world, Kera saw the guy she was dreaming about, Dylan. She feels as though he is not human, that he is one of them stuck in the human world. Kera lives in a world that is run by fear by a man named Navar. He uses magic to fear to feed his power. He has been going after half-bloods. She feels as though there is one person who will be able to defeat him, and that is Dylan.

I do not read a lot of paranormal books, but after this one, I think I am going to start reading more of them. The fantasy of a different world grabbed my attention and was able to hold it. In the beginning I was a little confused on what has happening in Teag, the more I read the more I understood. I loved the connection between both Dylan and Kera, but I would have loved to see more of the dreams in the beginning to really see Dylan and Kera’s relationship from the beginning.

I loved seeing the different things that were happening to Dylan before he realized what was really happening, when he was burned by the iron pan, when the fireflies lulled his grandpa to sleep, but not him. I had a suspicion of what was going on but it wasn’t explained right away, which kept me guessing and wanting to find out more.

It was also get to see the character development, there was so much growth within each character, and I enjoyed watching all of the relationships form from beginning to end.
