The Soother

(The Brennan Coven Trilogy #2)

A WITCH WITH THE GIFT OF LIGHT

Calliope the Soother is a witch devoting her life to easing the pain and misery of others, drawing out the darkness and replacing it with light.

A HALF-BREED WITH THE CURSE OF DARKNESS

A powerful wizard by birthright, Krystoff Dubhar’s tainted blood carries shadows destined to possess his mind and soul. Only with outlawed, dangerous blood magick can he hold the shadows at bay.

HIS SHADOWS WEAKEN HER

In the shadowed realm of Mistropa, Krystoff falls to overwhelming odds. Just as the Queen of Shadows is about to claim his power—and his life, Calliope hears the foreboding cry of the banshee, and the Soother becomes the wizard’s savior. As Calliope heals her mysterious fanged enemy, her heart is sent into overdrive. Is her accelerated pulse prompted by fear or desire? Either way, Krystoff’s shadowed presence proves dangerous. His sensual words ignite a fire long held dormant. His kiss reveals a forbidden passion.

HIS HUNGER MAY VERY WELL KILL HER

Seeking vengeance, the Queen’s dark army turns the Soother’s village into a battleground rife with death and destruction. Calliope fights to save her coven. Krystoff fights to save the Soother who has captured his heart. One bite changes everything. Can love survive the never-ending battle between light and dark?

Excerpt:

         Her pounding pulse heated Krystoff’s blood and had saliva pooling in his mouth. He swallowed but it wasn’t nearly enough to quench his thirst. Standing behind her, he

quickly conjured a pair of jeans and slid them on, then backed away from the inviting

skin just below her right ear. This witch’s intense scrutinizing had been quite the test in

self-control. One more minute and he would have pinned her against the door and traced

his tongue over each and every tattoo decorating her skin. 

         Krystoff walked around the table and pulled out another chair, flipped it around and

sat astride. “Charmer, huh?” He liked the nickname, even though it didn’t suit him.

Nothing about his life had been charmed. Blaming Riona would have been easy, but he’d

made his own share of mistakes over the years. Something about this witch had him

regretting quite a few of those blunders. Perhaps her magick had him ensnared in a spell

of remorse.

         Her hands found their way to her lap and she sighed. “My sister named you that.”

         Red marks in the shape of her fingers marred her pale neck. They would fade, but he didn’t like seeing them at all. He should be the only one marking her neck. What was he thinking? This witch wasn’t his. Nor did he have time for a romp between the sheets—

not even a short one. His mother—correction—Riona would be looking for him. It would be wise if he sought her out first. Maybe he’d get lucky and find Riona and Scout in the

same place.

         His blue-eyed angel stared at him, and he realized she’d been waiting for him to speak. “Sister? Ah, the fire witch.” The witch with red hair had incredible aim. She’d fried many Mistropans with one fireball. How many had she taken out after he’d passed out?

         Calliope smiled. “Just one of her many talents. Bevva’s a caster.” The smile vanished.

         He watched as she pinched her lips shut and shook her head. “It’s okay. Her secret is safe with me.” 

         “I doubt it.”

         “Don’t.” 

She jerked in her seat as if he’d slapped her. He’d never met such a complex being.

One moment she looked ready to throttle him, a second later he thought she’d bolt, and

yet another blink and the witch appeared ready to join him for a little skin-on-skin action.

Krystoff cleared his throat and attempted to soften his tone. “It’s the least I can do.

The two of you saved my life. I owe you at least that.” He stuck out his hand. “Name’s

Krystoff.”

         Wariness danced in her eyes before she sighed again and accepted his hand.

“Calliope.”

         Lovely. “Suits you.” He skimmed his thumb over her knuckle.

         She blinked and pulled away, her movements sluggish. “Does it? I never thought so.”

         “You’re made to make music and dance under the stars.”

         A blush crept across her cheeks. “If only Bevva could hear you now. She’d laugh her way to the moon.” Calliope picked at the chipped black polish on her thumb. “Charmer, indeed. You use those lines on all women, or just the ones who save you from taking a stroll with the banshee?” 

         Shoving out of her chair, she stomped to the stove and restocked her cabinets with

precision. Each methodical movement captivated Krystoff. She waved a glass bottle in

front of her face, then placed it on the exact shelf he’d taken it from. He admired her

organizational skills. 

         Krystoff scooted his chair closer. Her pace slowed and a bottle of dill fell from her

shaking hands, spilling onto the floor.  “Do I make you nervous?”

         Her lashes fluttered open. With a deep breath, she turned and leaned against the

counter. “No. You make me tired.”

         “I can see that.” Dark circles had formed crescents under her eyes and her shoulders

sagged beneath her black T-shirt. “Why?” He’d expect her to be tired if he’d gotten his

wish and had some fun in that bed of hers. They’d only had a simple and brief

conversation. What could possibly be tiring about that?

         Calliope shoved her hair out of her face, exposing the stars around her eye. “It really doesn’t concern you.” 

         Krystoff rose and flashed across the small room. The kitchen blurred beyond

recognition, but it mattered not. He knew exactly where he was going. In less than a

second, he stood directly in front of her, then tilted her chin up with a gentle touch of one

finger. “Are you sure about that?”

         More blinking, followed by, “You need to go.”

He smiled, dipped closer. She smelled of powder and lilacs, sunshine and wildflower

meadows. A more alluring combination could not possibly exist. “I’m not ready to go.”

Calliope gripped his shoulders and pushed. Krystoff didn’t budge. He held her in place

with his body. When she punched him, he laughed. This witch was feisty. If only he had

more time. 

         “What are you?” she asked with one more futile shove.

         He considered lying, and then shrugged. “I’m just a soulless half-breed wizard, but I do believe you’re the one who’s cast a spell.” He couldn’t resist. Krystoff dipped his head one more time, touched his lips to hers and became even more enchanted.

About The Luminary (Book #1)

When Meera Brennan learns she’s a Luminary, one of the most powerful witches in existence, it rocks her already fragile world. The revelation explains the disturbing episodes that made her question her sanity, but does little to soothe the sting of discovering her life is now at risk. To save herself and keep peace within the veiled community, Meera will have to hone her powers and brave an ancient realm to destroy the slayer’s magickal source. She alone must dispel chaos and ensure the balance of good and evil for all mankind.

Banished and stripped of his guardian powers because of a witch, Ghanem Adamo, former prince of the Saharren realm, receives a chance at redemption when his estranged father reveals an immortal battle destined to alter all realms. In order to protect the innocent, regain his title and reunite with his family, Ghanem must destroy the slayers’ source of power and bring down their terrorizing leader.

Her life . . .

Or his throne . . .

When the war against the slayers force Meera and Ghanem to work together, more than magickal sparks fly. Challenged by fate, can love survive a nefarious battle that can result in only one prize?

Elle J Rossi

Elle J Rossi grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by great people, a huge family and more animals than she could count. But the sites and sounds of the world beckoned, so she left her small town to escape into a creative world full of music. As a full time singer she was able to lose herself in a thousand different songs in a hundred different places. After meeting the love of her life and settling down, she yearned to find a new and fulfilling creative outlet. Overly fond of the happily ever after, she wondered what it would be like to have her own characters lead her down dark and twisted paths. The very first word on the very first page sealed her fate. She’d found a new love. She’d found her escape. Now along with weaving haunting tales about the journey to love, she’s creating cover art for authors around the world and loving every second of it. For fun, she cranks country music to take her back to her roots, and sings karaoke anytime she gets a chance. Her husband, two children, and a cat that rules the roost keep her company along the way and guarantee she doesn’t get lost in the enchanted forest. She wouldn’t have it any other way.

My Review:

Well, I just love this one. I know I was bad, again, as I opted to jump into this one without reading book one, but it was no problem. This book was written just perfect for you to be able to understand everything that was going on. 🙂 Well done!! There’s a ton of supernatural creatures, lots of magic, a lovely twist of mystery, as well as some excellent characters! 

Calliope is just awesome. She’s strong, she’s caring, she’s smart, and she’s powerful. She’s also a just very likable character as well as real. You will feel like you know her. She could be your best friend. Krystoff is just HAWT! I really like him. He’s quite different from your normal male character leads AND he’s a whole new set of creature. Trust me, you will love him too 🙂 

The amount of action was perfect. I sat on the edge of my seat and just HAD to keep reading. And it’s well written. You can literally visualize exactly how everything plays out! And the world building is phenomenal! I am amazed at how beautiful everything is. The bad guy, or woman, is just great. You will love to hate her just as much as me. And sometimes, that makes it all the more complicated- which is just another way to have a fantastic story!! 

There are excellent secondary characters, and you know how I just love those secondary characters. I have a feeling most are from the first book, so I really need to make sure to read that first book to learn all about them! This is just an all around wonderful, fun story that is well written! I definitely plan to jump on book one, to make sure I am all caught up, and then jump onto book three as soon as it’s out! 🙂 It’s too much fun not to.  5 MAGICALLY EXPLOSIVE PAWS!! 🙂
