The Expatriates by Corinne O’Flynn Blitz w Giveaways!

Book & Author Details:
The Expatriates #1 by Corinne O’Flynn
(Song of the Sending)
Publication date: October 15th 2014
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Synopsis:

They told him his world was destroyed.
And they were the last to escape.
They thought he was safe.
They were wrong.

Jim Wales can communicate with animals, but that’s not why he lives with a traveling carnival. Turns out his family’s been hiding him there since he was little, since someone started hunting all the scholars. Jim is a scholar—someone who can manipulate energy using magic—and he has no idea.

When a message arrives from Jim’s father—who supposedly died twelve years ago—Jim’s whereabouts are discovered, their carnival is attacked, and his mother is kidnapped. On the run with a strange glass map and a single coin, Jim finds himself racing to reclaim the father he thought he’d lost, plotting to save his mother, and discovering the truth about who he is.

But going home isn’t the same as being safe, and trust is everything.

What readers are saying:

“Told in a beautiful, flowing style full of colorful images and adrenaline-pumping action.”

“Pop some popcorn, sit back … and enjoy the thrill ride, right up to the end, which leaves you begging for more.”

“Captures your attention from the start and then guides you through a roller coaster of adventure, drama, mystery, magic and young love.”

As chaos looms, a warrior queen is reborn

Bookish academic Diana Laughton has been having terrible dreams. Dreams of battle, dreams of blood… dreams so vivid she’s living them day and night. When demons invade her quiet life, she wonders if she’s going mad. Or if perhaps she’s remembering a past life she had no idea existed…

In the midst of betrayal, he must protect her

Mythean Guardian Cadan Trinovante loved and betrayed Britain’s warrior queen Boudica two millennia ago. Now he’s tasked with protecting mortals whose lives affect the fate of humanity. His latest assignment is Boudica herself, reincarnated as a woman with no idea of her past or her fated future. Though in the irresistible form of Diana Laughton, it’s possible Cadan has once again met his match…

To succumb to seduction could prove fatal

Thrown together in a shadowy world that exists alongside our own, Diana and Cadan must fight not only the demonic forces that want Diana dead, but a past and a passion that have lasted centuries. Their desire could be deadly. But as evil from the underworld unites against them, their only hope could be each other.

Burdin of Choice Review, Soundtrack, and Giveaway!

Burdin of Choice

Title:  Burdin of Choice (Beasts of Burdin #2)

Author:  Alexander Nader

Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing

Release Date:  November 10, 2014

Keywords:  Urban Fantasy

Blurb:  Ty Burdin is back. Back to drinking and back to avoiding demons. He is, of course, the leading expert in his field. In both subjects.

That’s probably why, when a customer offers him way too much money just to locate a missing car and some mysterious cargo, he readily agrees. The dude is human after all—Ty’s prime target client base.

Along with the money comes a slew of disappearances which Ty tries to ignore while tracking down that car, because, of course, those missing people might be demon related, and as he’s said before, that’s agency business. Not his. Period.

Until today.

Ty Burdin is to back drinking as well as everything he vowed never to get involved with again.

Question is, which one will kill him first? The booze, the demons, or the Agency?

Unholy Creations Review and Giveaway!

So this is one of my new favorite books. It’s so good and there’s a giveaway with me review :)

Unholy Creations

by C. Shell
The Associates #1
Publication Date: October 14, 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Romance
Purchase from AmazonPurchase from B&NPurchase from Kobo

Unholy Creations

Synopsis

My name is Kara Radcliff and I’m a witch. Not the pointy hat and black cat kind that you see on Halloween, but a true spell casting, sneaker wearing, party loving, kick-ass witch.

Until two weeks ago, that is all I was and all I ever wanted to be. My expectations in life didn’t soar higher than graduating college and finding a decent job that would help pay off my mounting student loans.

All of that went out the window when I received the invitation.

I’ve been selected to compete for the chance of a lifetime. If I win, not only will I fulfill the newly vacant spot as an Associate, but I will be leaving my family behind to go live and work alongside the four Rulers of our paranormal community. I will be trusted in helping them keep our kind safe and hidden from the humans and those among us that prefer to cause trouble and mayhem. Every society has hoodlums, our kind just happen to cause more destruction than most.

Being an Associate is an honor. The job is dangerous and will require me to go up against Fae, shifters, witches, and vampires that are much more powerful and stronger I could ever hope to be. I love kicking butt and casting spells, but even I have my limits.

On top of everything, I seem to have caught the attention of two of the Rulers. Only I could go from having no men in my life to having one too many. Neither man is used to hearing the word, “No”, and although my mind says the word often, my mouth and body keep saying, “Yes”. What is a witch to do?

Am I up for this new challenge? Yes.
Can I handle the danger? Yes.
Will my heart survive the journey? Maybe.

This is my screwed up story. This is my crazy life, and this is the just the beginning.

Paranormal Keepers by Jen Naumann
Publication date: March 11th 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult
Synopsis:
Everyone thinks Harper Young killed her boyfriend. No one will say it to her face, but the signs are everywhere.
It’s almost been a year since Gavin was torn from Harper’s arms and brutally murdered. The police wrote it off as a freak accident, deciding Harper’s strange testimony was given under duress. But she knows something unnatural was involved and refuses to stop looking until she finds his killer, even if it means her reputation as a senior is ruined. Even if it means there really are monsters living among us.
With the discovery of the mothmen, witches, vampires and all the creatures she always suspected were out there, Harper finds herself amidst a complex bundle of unseen heroes who call themselves “Keepers”, sworn to keep the secret of the paranormal creatures that walk this earth. As she tries to understand what’s so special about her that she’s able to break an old Keeper law, Harper has a baffling vision of kissing a mysterious guy before a blade is brought down on him. Before she can get a handle on her future, she becomes central to a battle between the questionable “heroes” and the evil she’s been training to fight, leaving her to wonder if there’s any way to change the fate that has been foretold before it’s too late.

November 9th – 16th Updates

So, since I am now doing two blogs, which I will eventually move everything completely over to my newer blog, I’ve decided that those of you who follow me on here should still be able to see all of the awesome books and goodies and giveaways I’m having. So, I have decided instead of trying to do multiple posts on multiple blogs every single day, I’ll post a weekly update on here from the past week that was published on my newer, main blog on here. And I’ll still do some of the important ones twice. Also, since I got shut down the first time here on wordpress, and I don’t want it to happen again, I will only do things that can’t come close to violating anyone damn crazy terms LOL. I wanna make sure you guys don’t lose out of anything because of some small but ridiculous stipulation, especially since I do book tours and things of that sort :)

So, with that said, here’s this post week’s goodies. :) There’s ALOT of giveaways this week :) I’ll post the date, the title and the link for you to go to the post with the giveaways, and I’ll list their covers. That way, you only have to click if you wanna head over to enter, comment, or see more of the post.

Description:
From bestselling
author Kaitlyn Davis comes the second book in the thrilling A Dance of Dragons
series–perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Graceling, and Game of Thrones!
Drenched in darkness and surrounded by the echo of screams,
Jinji waits deep in the dungeons of Rayfort, haunted by the memory of the knife
stabbing Rhen, plagued by a foreign voice whispering through her mind. A few
floors above, Rhen rests trapped in a coma, about to wake to a changed world—a
world where his best friend is a woman, his nephew is the king, and an enemy
army surrounds him on all sides.
But human wars are insignificant compared to the darkness
gathering unseen. Memories of lives she never lived flash through Jinji’s
thoughts, hinting at a past that cannot be repeated. A mysterious phantom
visits Rhen, carrying cryptic messages of the future. And somewhere out there,
the shadow continues to lurk in silence.
Uncertain of their relationship and tempted by new feelings,
Rhen and Jinji must find a way to work together. The fate of humanity rests on
their shoulders and the real battle has only just begun…
