You guys should know by now how much I love Ms. Charlotte Abel! She is the FIRST author who EVER sent me anything signed! I was over the moon for days! 🙂 She is also the reason I’ve started a glass case, for my signed stuff 🙂 can’t have dust touching those babies! LOL! So when Ms Charlotte told me she was starting a new series and there was a book tour for it, I HAD to be a part of it!! 🙂 So now, for the goodies!!
Jonathan McKnight lost everything in Afghanistan. His left hand, his identical twin, his self-respect and his naive belief that good always triumphs over evil. Burdened by grief and guilt, he searches for redemption on a solo backpacking trip into the remote Sawatch Mountains of Colorado and discovers a secret tribe of shifters.
River, the beautiful young shifter that rescues Jonathan has been promised to a man she despises. A man that does not desire her and only wants to use her to achieve his own political goals. Jonathan is more than a romantic rival. He’s a threat to those goals.
The only way to save Jonathan’s life is for River to take him as her recruit.
As Jonathan learns more about the horrors of River’s cult-like society, he becomes even more determined to escape it, until he learns that River is responsible for everything he does and will be executed if he succeeds.
Escape is not an option—unless Jonathan can persuade River to leave with him. And if she refuses? Well, then, he’ll just have to kidnap her.
I would like to count the ways I LOVE Charlotte Abel… I love her because her writing takes me to a place that most things in life can’t do. I love her because when she writes a character, I completely fall in love with those characters and I feel like I know them. I love her because her writing is FLAWLESS! There is nothing better than being so submerged in a story that life floats away and there’s nothing left but the story. Have you fallen in love yet?!
I am so pumped about this new series. I didn’t think I could love another story by Ms Abel more than her Channie series- but I’m head over heels GONE! This is one of the coolest new stories and a new series I’ve read, IN YEARS! It takes a lot for me to truly love book one. There’s usually a slow pace somewhere, either the back story, or the climbing of the plot and climax, or something, but absolutely not here. I was hooked for several hours- which majorly disrupted my sleep- but was worth it as there was nothing that could keep me from finishing this story!
River is my new heroine favorite! Growing up in the world she did may be hard to understand, but you will love her every second of figuring it out! She is brave, and strong, and beautiful, and heartfelt! She cares about people and never wants anyone to be hurt or sad. And Jonathan is totally my hero- though I may love Rueben too- as he is totally out of his element in River’s world, but he is willing to bare it to help her. Neither River nor Jonathan have had an easy life. They’ve had some tragedies and hardships. I love when they over come those things.
I’ve had such an emotional ride for this book. Sad parts make me cry, funny parts make me laugh, hard parts make me cringe, and good parts make me cheer, while all the while making me say “AHA!” after figuring out another plot twist! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new series! PLEASE PLEASE GIVE ME SO MUCH MORE!! I can’t believe I am saying this, but one of my best reads YET!! Sorry Channie, I think River may have beaten you! *GASP* this is one of my rare ratings, that just top my 5 PAW scale! So a whole lot of TOTALLY PHENOMENAL PAWS!! 🙂
Charlotte Abel was born and raised in Oklahoma where she met her soulmate, Pete. She chased him to Boulder, Colorado and finally convinced him they were meant to be together forever. They’ve raised three kids, two ferrets, three dogs and countless hamsters — and are still happily married.
She’s in love with “real” life and paranormal romance. When she’s not reading or writing, Charlotte enjoys hiking, bicycling and primitive archery (although she’s never shot at anything other than a target!)
The final book of The Channie Series, “Finding Valor,” should be available by Christmas.
