DESCRIPTION
Olivia Harmon feels safer separated from everyone else. Her empathic powers not only lets her experience other people’s feelings, but also influence them. It’s a heavy burden to carry, and the main reason she’s always been more comfortable around the dead. As a small town funeral director and assistant county coroner, Olivia is able to keep her distance from the day to day drama of the living.

But after a series of seemingly unrelated deaths, Olivia discovers a hidden connection that puts her right in the middle of the investigation. In order to stop a killer, she must face a menacing dark magic and her own family’s hidden past. When confronted with the truth, Olivia will be forced to choose between the carefully constructed life she has tried to maintain and the reality of who she really is.

EXERPT
“The vehicle swerved, perhaps to avoid a deer or some other wildlife, and dropped off the embankment, coming to rest there.” Officer Richardson indicated the car’s current position. “The passenger was ejected, and the male driver appears to have died on impact. We’ve identified him.” He paused and flipped through several more pages of his notebook. “Scott Malone of Indianapolis. The female passenger wasn’t carrying identification. I’ll notify Mr. Malone’s next of kin, and hopefully they can help me ID the woman.”
“Thanks. I’ll do my reading, and then we can all go home.”
“I’ll wait by my car for you to finish.” Brad still wasn’t comfortable with the fact I used magic on the job, even after months of working together.

“It shouldn’t take long,” I shrugged, trying to put him at ease. “That is, if the weather holds out.”

It was overcast, and the starless sky added to the grim mood on the ground. The heavy clouds crouching over the scene threatened snow at any moment. The moisture screwed with the energy flow, making it harder to gather power, so I needed to wrap this up quick.
“I should be able to make a ruling in a few minutes,” I said, and with a renewed sense of urgency headed toward the Toyota. As I followed the path the car had taken, nothing seemed unusual. I opened the door, and the metallic tang of blood assaulted me. The driver was hunched over the steering wheel. The head wound looked serious, but blood wasn’t always a clear indication of damage. The only way I’d know for sure was an examination.
I snapped a few photographs and slipped off my rings, dropping them into my pocket. With my new ink, I didn’t have to draw spell glyphs on my hands anymore. I pulled on my gloves, ready to do the reading. I gathered power and drew it through the caduceus on my wrist. Images flashed behind my closed eyes.
Liver damage from habitual drinking. A healed knife wound. Two fractured ribs. A compound fracture of the wrist. Two burst fractures of the lumbar spine. A fractured skull and brain trauma.
The injuries were jumbled together in such a short span of time, it was hard to tell which one came first, but the brain trauma was clearly the cause of death. Everything seemed to be in line with an auto accident. I took a few more photographs and moved on to the body on the ground, removing the white sheet.
The unidentified girl was pretty. Strawberry blonde hair splayed around her head and a sprinkling of freckles dotted her baby face. She looked far too young to end up with me.
“I’m so sorry,” I said, smoothing the hair from her face. “I’ll take care of you. I promise.” I placed a hand over each of her eyes, and a hot flash of power surged up my arms. I jerked my hand back.
What the hell?
My fingers burned from the contact. Shaking them, I gave it a second try, but this time I avoided touching her directly. My hands hovered just over her eyes, and I sent out my power. There was resistance, and the images never came. Something wasn’t right.

my review

Well I’ve got a few new adventure with this one. I love when a paranormal story mixes in mystery as a main element and this one was fantastic. A witch with unique powers who works for the coroners office to help the police solve crimes of victims, sounds good right? Well it gets better when you throw in some crazy witch hunters trying to frame her, a crazy ex boyfriend and some new HAWT guys and a wonderful best friend!

Olivia is a wonderful leading lady to follow. She runs a funeral home and works with the coroners office. She prefers the dead because she’s an empath and it a little terrible to be around so many people with so many emotions. She loves her jobs and had a lovely best friend who is not only her assistant be a fellow witch. She is overall just well rounded. She has her flaws and she has her ignorance but she also has a good heart and is such a likable person. And then she comes across some very dark magic and it seems her world is completely falling apart. I liked her- a lot.

And the best part is you don’t actually know exactly who is really behind all the bad things happening. Olivia is learning things as she is trying to unravel the mystery around the deaths and the treats made to her. It was cool to learn with her as she did. And then when you learn everything at the end with that jaw dropping finale, you may slap yourself for not noticing those little things. And then I kept thinking it was going to be this person or that person, I had two in mind, and then… Well you’ll have to find out on your own. :)

The writing is very well done, I couldn’t put it down. The plot was intriguing and had me hooked. I think the characters are also very well done. I really do hope this becomes a series because I want more! I want to know what will happen to Olivia and her friends after the fall out of everything. I somehow doubt it’ll just go back to normal and with those big wigs sniffing around I just want more!! Gimme gimme! :) 5 WITCHY PAWS!!

Torrent Review Tour!

Torrent (Condemned, #1)

Torrent (Condemned #1)

I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him, even now.
Now that he’s holding me captive on an island.
Rafe has his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and if I’m honest, I can’t blame him. I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn’t commit.
But now he’s free and the tables have turned…now he’s the one driven by obsession.

TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content that includes sexual situations and violence. Intended for adult readers 18+ only. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.

 My Review
So this isn’t my normal cup of tea, but it’s so intriguing that I decided to just go with it. Now I’m thinking I might need therapy lol but it’s dark and disturbing and yet I still thought it was a really good book. A lot of that is the writing, so it’s so well done that I’m thinking therapy is worth it :) it’s a gritty, terrifying tale that will leave you speechless or maybe you’ll feel better about yourself, I’m still not sure. All I know is that I definitely went on a whirlwind ride with this one.

So Alex, aka Lex, blamed an innocent man, Rafe, for a very horrible crime. Worse, he was her brothers best friend, and her brother is the real villain here. She is a lost soul, broken to me. I could never understand why she made the choices she did or was ever ok with how things turned out. Yes she HA guilt but obviously not quite enough to fix it. And now she is the captive of Rafe, who just wants her to have the pain he’s had. It’s definitely not an easy walk to take in Lex’s shoes.

Rafe was in prison for 8 years for something he did not do. And he wants revenge. I don’t condone Rafe and the way he handled things but a part of me almost understands. I don’t know how I’d feel if every single thing was taken from me because of a lie told by a girl he knew to cover up a horrible crime. And then he learns why she lied and what really happened.

Be prepared for a lot of shock factors. This was not my comfort zone, and yet, even of I hated it I don’t know if I could have stopped because there was something so gripping about this story. And though it’s not my normal fantasy favorite, no magic or swords and shifters, the only reason it’s not a 5 paw is that the damn characters kept making me mad. Lex and her spiteful reasons, her horrible step brother, her father- dude come on how did you NOT SEE SOMETHING!!! And Rafe and his obsession, and strange reasoning as well. But the writing was so good and the actual story line and plot was just enveloping for me to not keep reading. And heads up, there’s a cliff hanger! Kind of a lulu at the drop off lol so I’m thinking I might have to read book two when it comes out. 4 PAWS :)

Book Description:

Life raising a hellhound is no easy task. Unforeseen problems can and will arise at every turn.

My Review

I both really liked and got really frustrated with this book. First, it really is a good book and it’s a quick read, it’s fun, and there’s so many good things. But my biggest complaint is that maybe some just a little research would have been needed. So, Summer is turning 21 and she’s a veterinarian-in training- already. This is not possible unless you are a GENIUS. Um, as someone who had to go to school for all of this, you actually have to go to vet school, so there’s no way she’s a doctor in  her residency yet. Yeah I know but it’s something that stuck with me. And then on the positive note, she really cares about her animals. I loved that part. Plus Summer has really good friends and a great vet to work with. I would love her circle of friends.  

Another thing that I both liked and became frustrated with. The reaction to supernatural beings. Like dude, he’s a vampire, and no one even blinked an eye. They all just had no reaction. So, I know some are more open minded than others, but seriously, I’d have to poke him with a stake, and throw some holy water on him to make sure LOL. But bringing Sully to work everyday, I was all cool with that LOL maybe I just have an aversion to those vampers. 

I love the relationships between Summer and her friends. She has good friends and great coworkers, and being from an orphanage it’s a wonder everyone is as normal as they are. And there’s plenty of hot guys. I know she is going to have some fun coming with more books in the series.  AND heads up, there’s a cliff hanger. A big one. But I look forward to seeing where this series is going and I do look forward to seeing more of Summer’s journey, especially because I love Sully!! :) 4 HELLHOUND PAWS!!

Author Interview

First, tell me a little about your book :)….
A young woman finds a hellhound pup and takes it in since it’s mother is found dead. Craziness ensues with raising a hellhound while she tries to find a missing item for her landlord.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?
It was a dare I posed to my teenage daughter one summer. She was bored as all teens are and I told her she should get together with some of her artist friends and make a graphic novel. I told her if she did, I would attempt to write a vampire book. Needless to say she did not write a graphic novel, but I wrote Blood of a Werewolf, which is the first of five in the Blood Series.

What inspired you to write your first book and what was it?
I had been reading a bunch of YA books that wet spring, and afterwards I read an article by Ellen Schreiber stating that some one on a plane suggested she write a book. She ended up writing the series Vampire Kisses which I adore. She said if she could do it, anyone could. Well since I’m ‘anyone’, I sat down and voila, I wrote a book.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Of course. You write what you know. Of course I don’t know any vampires or hellhounds personally, but the characters are still people and have experiences and emotions like anyone of us and that is where I use my experiences.

How do you chose when/which characters die in your books?
So far only the bad guys have died. I haven’t come to a point where I want /need to kill off one of my creations. Besides all my books are Happily Ever After’s so it makes it hard to kill off people under that scenario

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Truthfully, I don’t get a lot of reading in – too busy lately. Though a friend of mine just finished a YA book called Hollow’s End that I read in the airport on the way back from a conference and I loved it – the author’s name is Marianne Morea.

Who do you look up to as a writer?
Anne Rice is one of my all time favs and I was lucky enough to meet her last year at a Con I attended. She’s the one who got me interested in witches. Jim Butcher is another fav – love, love, love his Dresden Series. He’s got such a great sense of humor and I try to emulate that in my writing. And of course, there’s Stephen King. I haven’t read any of his recent stuff but I grew up reading his books and love the way he paints terror in ones mind.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?
I’ve re-released the Blood series after finding an editor that really challenges me, I think the books now are as good as they are ever going to get. As for Finding Midnight, I don’t think I’ve had enough time to think about that, though when I start work on the sequel I might very well have some things I wish I could change in the first book.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Editing….Ugh! Hate it! Once I’m done I don’t want to go back and play with it once, twice, thrice and sometimes even more.

What book are you reading now? Or what genre?
I almost always read YA. My ‘To Be Read’ pile is taller than I am. But I will say that my next purchase will be Julie Morgan’s Fallen. We became great friends at the last Con I went to and I’m intrigued by her Chronicles of the Fallen series.

Who designed the cover? And do you help with them?
For the Blood Series the first round I did the covers, but when I decided to re-release them I wanted covers that somehow linked them together. I worked with M.S. Fowle and she did a great job.
On Finding Midnight I was recommended to an Illustrator by another author friend to contact Jennifer Meyer. I described the book and she’d do some work than ask me questions about scenery, character traits, etc. then she’d go and work some more. Before I knew it she had this beautiful cover I was thrilled to say is mine.

Did you learn anything from writing your books and what was it?
Oh yes. I do research on folklore, places, supernatural creatures, religions. It’s fascinating. I like when I read a book and walk a way feeling I learned something and I hope that my readers walk away from my books learning a little something too.

If you could be one of your characters, who would you chose?
Wow…In Finding Midnight, I think probably Summer’s quirky side-kick Tori. I think she’s a kick in the pants and she’s so willing to try anything. I’m probably more like Summer where I’m a bit timid about jumping into something new and tend to be more introverted.

Are there any books you think some of us should read, just because?
Well I would recommend Anne Rice’s Witching Hour if you haven’t read it, it will most definitely get you psyched about witches. The Secret Circle series by L.J. Smith. I think I’ve read all of her books and hope to one day ‘fan girl’ in her presence.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Thank you. Every reader is important to me. I’m self-published and I work very hard to honor my readers with handmade swag and heart felt greetings. I’ve even written a poem to show my appreciation:
An AUTHOR’s efforts are all for naught
Without a READER whose book they’ve bought

So HAIL! To the READER, I bend my knee
A ‘Happily Ever After’ to YOU, from ME.

After months of searching, Ember and her friends have finally located the Sword of Light, the only weapon capable of destroying Queen Aneira and ending her rule. This is Ember’s destiny. Or so she thought. Now a pact to save the man she loves changes everything.



In this final installment in the Darkness Series, when the truth comes to light, Ember will learn some things are better left in the dark as her world is ripped even further apart. It is no longer a rabbit hole, but a never-ending black void full of endless lies, betrayals, and secrets.

But this price may be too high—even for her.

**Warning: The Darkness Series is not YA, but a NA Series**
 
 
Darkness of Light (Darkness #1)
 

Ember Brycin has been called them all. She’s always known she’s different. No one has ever called her normal, even under the best circumstances. Bizarre and inexplicable things continually happen to her, and having two different colored eyes, strange hair, and an unusual tattoo only contributes to the gossip about her.


When the latest school explosion lands her in a facility for troubled teens, she meets Eli Dragen, who’s hot as hell and darkly mysterious. Their connection is full of passion, danger, and secrets. Secrets that will not only change her life, but what and who she is—leading her down a path she never imagined possible.

Between Light and Dark, Ember finds a world where truth and knowledge are power and no one can be trusted. But her survival depends on finding out the truth about herself. In her pursuit, she is forced between love and destiny and good and evil, even when the differences between them aren’t always clear. At worst, she will incite a war that could destroy both worlds. At best, she will not only lose her heart but her life and everyone she loves. Once the truth is out, however, there will be no going back. And she’ll definitely wish she could.

Fire in the Darkness (Darkness #2)



It’s been four weeks since Ember Brycin witnessed what her powers are capable of. The Electrical Current Storm has turned Seattle, Washington into a natural disaster zone. The death toll is in the thousands with countless others homeless and hungry.
And Ember is the one who caused it. Something she will have to live with every day.

Those people who were unable to escape either turned quickly into gangs or live in shelters. Ember, on the other hand, can’t do either. With a price on her head and a Dark Dweller on her ass, she is constantly on the move. Both Light and Dark are hunting her for their own purpose to use her as a weapon or a pawn in the war between the Unseelie King of the Dark and the Seelie Queen of the Light.

Em needs help but doesn’t know who to trust: Lars, the mystery man Torin told her to find? Torin, the Seelie Queen’s personal knight, who has sworn to keep Em safe? Or Eli, who wants to turn her over to the Unseelie King, but whom she has an undeniable, intense connection with?

No matter what she chooses she will probably lose—her life or everything and everyone she loves.




Beast In The Darkness (An Elighan Dragen Novelette)
 
(Darkness #2.5)
 





We know the story from Ember’s POV, but what happens to Eli after Ember disappears? Crawl inside Eli’s mind and experience what he goes through. Be warned his mind in not a fuzzy warm place to be….






 
 
 
 
Dwellers of Darkness (Darkness #3)
 
Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. Em would be 22 now—if she were human. She’s not. She is a Dae—part Demon and part Fay—with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her more of a freak.


Life has become further complicated for Ember since returning from the Otherworld. Besides being continuously hunted by the Seelie Queen, Ember is at the top of the Unseelie King’s list, after breaking her oath with him. No one breaks a vow with the Unseelie King without extreme consequences.

Adding to Ember’s problems is a certain Dark Dweller whose mood has become violent and cruel. As much as she’d like to deny it, there is an undeniable connection between them. Eli is sexy, gorgeous, and frustrating as hell. She also knows he is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever. 

But her problems go way past him. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound escalates even more as they prepare to obtain the Sword of Light—the only weapon able to kill the Queen. 

But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual nothing is ever what it seems.

I absolutely love this series so I am stoked to share the release day goodies with you today and check back in a few days as I’ll have my blog tour stop and an interview with Nick!! :) YAY!! So let me show you! 
Sapphire's Divinity 3x
Title:  Sapphire’s  Divinity
Author:  Justine  Winter
Genre:  Paranormal  Romance
 

Blurb:  

I  was  a  hybrid  werewolf  with  a  secret  destiny  shadowed  by  a  prophecy  the  Ancient  Guardians  foretold.  The  same  Ancient  Guardians  that  had  organised  the  annual  Alpha  summit  Riley  had  been  summoned  to.

Since  Jackson’s  demon  threat  everyone  was  powered  up  on  overtime  at  the  gym.  Train,  sweat,  repeat.  Train,  sweat,  repeat.

But  all  that  rage-filled  preparation  wasn’t  enough.  We  were  being  targeted  by  something  new,  and  it  didn’t  stop  there.

The  summit  was  proving  to  be  my  nemesis.  Egotistical  morons  challenged  me  with  threats  to  the  one  I  loved,  and  I  knew  I  couldn’t  endure  a  life  without  Riley.

Besides  all  of  that,  there  was  one  thing  I  was  finally  understanding  about  the  supernatural.  Nothing  was  as   it  seemed.

Not  even  me.

My Review

Well holy hot damn, this is a fantastic sequel! Luna is now adjusting quite well to her new life, but she is now learning to live with the consequences both good and bad of those changes. She has transformed into a wonderful woman, and I love how she has become so much more. She has done a wonderful job with all the changes occurring in her life. She really is a wonderfully written character. And of course the author has left us wanting so mure chore.  And Riley, dude I am having horrible thoughts about how to get rid of Luna to steal Riley. LOL Actually I am thinking that I like Luna too much that Riley is just going to have to find me a wolfy boyfriend so I can have my own :) Riley has become one of the best male characters I’ve read in a long time. Of course he has some flaws, but everyone does. But he’s turned into a wonderful person, not just a wonderful alpha, and he’s definitely a mate worthy of Luna. They are one of the most amazing couples every. 

There’s a whole lot going on here. There’s fall out from the incident at the end of book one. And now, Luna and Riley have to not only take care of their pack, but go meet with the big Council. And let’s just say that there’s some horrible people who need to die. But we also get to meet new characters who are just as awesome. I loved the conversations between Luna and the Ancients. It made me giggle when it wasn’t making me have heart failure with all the big bombs dropping. The plot for this story has added even more action and mystery around these characters. It’s quite an amazing ride. 

There’s still threats, and there’s still love. I can’t wait to read book three. Really, this has become a need to have series for me. Well done Ms Justine!! Amazing! 5 FANTASTIC WOLFY PAWS!!!

About the Author:

Image of Justine Winter

I’ve always lived a life based on my imagination, from hopeless dreams of romance to concocting alternate realities involving supernaturals. I’m completely fascinated with anything hero-related, and often speculate which superpower I’d possess. I haven’t settled on one yet.

I was born in England, and currently reside in Wales, UK. I love to write, and most days you’ll find me happily tapping away at the computer whilst in my pyjama-clad bubble. I also spend my time reading, and if that isn’t enough I’m often in the kitchen baking up a treat.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005]

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

Faced with the scariest decision of her life, Missy is going behind enemy lines to save the rebel that seems to haunt her every dream.

My Review

Yay for getting the new book!!! Boo for having to wait for more after that ending!! Lol I’m also going to straight up tell you I may get a little bit spoilery because I NEED to say a few things!! Ok here we go- I am so addicted to this series. I’ve been a stalker since Eden but now Ms J is almost topping my leading man with Tyler, don’t tell my BBF!! :) and the ishnit has hit the fan… And the fan blew it up with half a community. OMG! I didn’t think it could get more scary for my favorite people but it did, and I think it could get worse!

I need to say, I think Missy was the most broken and I am overjoyed with Tyler being her glue to put herself back together! She grows some nerves, goes over enemy lines, stays there, all to help get tyler out! And trust me, Tyler really is worth fighting for! I’m so proud of her, for everything she’s over come. I didn’t know if anyone would ever tip Charlotte for my favorite but dammit if missy is really close. And then he trauma is almost repeated and I really thought she’d lose it all. I really did. But leave it to tyler to find her in the dark and bring her back to life. Bravo Ms J, now you gotta top this one ;)

Tyler is one of the best leading male characters I’ve read! He’s already sexy and dangerous but with this experiments things are really different. And yet, he overcomes all of those things to make sure Missy is ok. And the things he says, waiting forever, being gentle, I mean I love him… Oh Logan, this may be a problem for you… Tyler is one sexy HAWT dude!!! And I’m all about his sweetness, the only thing keeping him behind Logan is Logan’s fun and silly attitude. Oh and for those of you crazy folk who don’t know Logan, you should read her Eden series… But go for Aiden- LOGAN’S MINE!! Lol

So it’s off topic, but I f you haven’t figure from my crazy ranting, everything Ms J writes is a masterpiece. Seriously, one of the best writers, and to top it, it’s the best book of the series yet, though I still hold the first of the series very high, this one really shines through. I don’t know how else to say it but this dystopian fantasy has it all- everything and more!! So don’t take my word for it- get your hands on it! Oh wait, take my word that it’s EPICALLY AWESOME!! I’ve decided it’s so worth it :) 5 PAWS, and honestly, it’s worth so much more than that!

Trapped within the cruel world of hormones and bullies, fifteen-year-old Aiden is convinced life has more to offer him. His instincts are proven correct on the night he is awakened by a voice calling to him from outside his window. As he sleepily peers into his yard, his eyes slowly focus on a woman who says she is there to take him to Eden. Aiden is about to fulfill the life purpose he never knew he had.

It is in Eden, a land on the brink of war, where Aiden will finally learn to trust himself and those around him. Accompanied by Wolf, his sidekick Logan, and the beautiful archer, Elisa, Aiden is soon thrust into a battle to save Eden. Meanwhile Elisa, the only girl in the King’s Army, is in the midst of her own struggles. Betrothed to a man she has no intention of marrying, Elisa is caught between the need to prove herself and her desire for true happiness. And now that she has met Aiden, she is more confused than ever.

In this action-packed fantasy tale, romance, adventure, and intrigue surround Aiden as he learns just what he is capable of when he discovers confidence and courage.

Eden-West (Eden, #2)

New beginnings, new conflicts, and new adventures arise in the second installment of the Eden Series, Eden-West.
Months after his initial journey to Eden, Aiden is learning to cope with his own transformation.

What has become of the world he fell in love with? Are his friends safe? Is the war over? With no answers, and no hope for contact, Aiden decides to focus on his life in his world. Just as he makes this decision, he encounters a familiar bright light and thinks he knows exactly what it means. Except the light isn’t at all what he expects and neither is the person behind it. When Aiden returns to Eden, it is to a whole new part of that special world, and a whole new set of adventures.
Weeks after Aiden was returned to his own world, Elisa is sent to Nysa, the revered Southern city, to retrieve the one thing she’d rather avoid – Wolf. Captain Turk instructed her to get in and get out – but that is easier said than done. When she finds her missing friend, she also stumbles upon a great deal of trouble. This trouble goes by one name – Markus, the leader of the Sun People.

Surprises await him when he arrives in the Capital; his close-knit group of friends is slowly falling apart. On top of it all, another battle is just around the corner, one that will change everything.

Rain has made her choice, and now she is in some unknown fortress with the feared sorcerer, Aziz. She wants nothing more but to please him, but being his Queen isn’t as easy as she thought.

The Edge by Jamie MaGee Episode 1 Release Day!

From the Author:

I’m extremely excited to tell you all about my next release!
EDGE is an Adult Paranormal Serial.

Serial’s are by no means a new concept but one that has been forgotten over time, and now in this modern world they seem to be taking flight once more.

The best way to explain how these are written is to state they are like episodes you watch of your favorite shows. Each one has its own conflict, but there is a larger conflict that stretches across the entire season.

Season one of EDGE is the same length that three and a half of my novels would equal. Each episode is four chapters long.

This is not the classic love story that I have written in the past, centered on one couple. This dynamic cast of paranormal bikers, immortal witches, and modern day lawmen, along with the classic ‘bad guys’ all collide to offer a mystic mystery, that impacts each character in some way.

Though this story is not connected to the YA Web of Hearts, you will find common ground between the two, common characters, and terms.

As of now each episode is scheduled to be released every two weeks. Here’s the catch – YOU – as the reader have the power over the publish button.

At the end of each episode there will be a link to my website, and there you will find an image you can share with one click. If the shares reach their target before the two week point the next episode will go out immediately. How fun is that?

The first episode is set to be released on August 25th, but you have the power to change that! All you have to do is share!
Here is the link!
UNLOCK the EDGE

It is my personal goal to make this series as interactive as possible. I have set up a Pinterest board for this serial and LOVE it when readers send images/ music to be added to it. I also plan to find a chat room for us all to gather in once a month to chat about the story! ( more info on that soon!) Okay, here you go! Have a look at what this story is all about!

 

Edge (Edge Serial Book 1)

Reveca Beauregard had long ago been dubbed the Queen of Darkness by the dead. To the living she was known as the Pentacle Daughter, the only acknowledged female member of the Pentacle Sons MC, the most lethal biker correlation known to exist. She was rumored to be a witch. That rumor, of course, was true.

New Orleans was her home, at the Beauregard Boneyard, the safe haven the Club resided within. Only those in the inner circle were as Reveca was—immortal. To be as such you had to choose the life, and the life had to choose you. For either to occur, death came first.

Those deaths came from wars the Sons fought with both the mortal and immortal worlds, as they bent the decrees of the modern lawmen and the paranormal world at large who had no hope of opposing the dark splendor of their vengeance.

Presently, the mysterious murder of a mortal coupled with the cold-blooded slaying of Reveca’s close friend has led the lawmen to place their corrupt accusations upon the Sons. A forced barter with a Lord of Death has landed the Club with a soul that is set to rock the foundation the Sons as a whole stand upon.

My Review of Episode 1

It’s going to hook you, just like it hooked me! There’s a biker club of paranormal hawtness. :) And there’s a whole lot of mystery with a whole bunch of crazy happening. Plus, something totally epic happens right at the end of episode one, Revecca’s past comes back to meet her present. It’s amazing. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on all episodes :) I am going to say 5 PAWS so far because I am salivating to read more. LOL I’ll do a real and full review once I can read the whole book :)

About the Author

twitter username Jamie_Magee_
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
