The Making of Michael Bishop

A Realm Walker Short Story

Kathleen Collins

Genre: urban fantasy, dark fantasy

Date of Publication: August 30, 2014

ASIN: B00N5YWPCE

Number of pages: 20

Book Description: Keep your distance. Don’t look him in the eye. Feed him and leave.

Michael D’Augustino is a priest in the time of the Inquisition. Marked as weak for his refusal to torture those charged with sorcery, heresy, devil worship or worse, he’s given another task. Feed the prisoner in the cell in the darkest corner of the dungeon. With the edict comes a set of instructions.

Ever obedient, Michael does exactly as he is told. Until the night his charge doesn’t eat and Michael has to enter the cell to find out why. Instead of the beast he believes to be imprisoned there, he finds a man. A broken, tormented man who asks for help.

But all is not as it seems and, before the night is through, Michael will be changed forever.

Available at Amazon and BN 

My Review
So this is the story of how Michael Bishop became Michael Bishop. He was a shy, compassionate person who was a child of a priest and a poor woman. As long as Michael did everything his father the priest told him, his mother received money to help her live. Poor Michael had to watch torture and murder and horror, until he shows compassion to his prisoner, who changes his life forever.

This is a short story, but it’s good none the less. It’s dark and gritty and goes to look into the past of how things were compared to the present. It’s definitely interesting and a little gruesome and adds to the realm walker series in a good way 🙂 4.5 CREEPTASTIC PAWS, only because I wanted more!! 🙂

Extract from Isis, Vampires and Ghosts – Oh My! by Janis Hill 

Chapter 5

Estella had the grace and timing to wake up just after I’d hauled her dead weight, literally, into the chair and balanced it there long enough the grab the rope.

“By the Light of Isis, what do you think you’re doing?” Her tone was nearly petulant enough to be the old Estella asking me, not the new peace-and-love one.

“Following your High Priestess’ instructions.” I grunted while tying her hands behind her back as best I could, before continuing to wrap the rope around her and the chair.

“But why are you tying me to a chair now?” she asked, aghast to realise just how tight I had done it. “Branwyre can’t take over until night time. We’ve got at least another hour.”

Ignoring her question for a moment, I snatched her right foot and tied it to the corresponding chair leg. Then, ignoring the attempted kick, did the same to her left one.

“Roxanna clearly states in her instructions here to gather the required items, purify them and set it all up, you included.” I waved the note at her before continuing to wrap her legs, backside and chair in the rope. Yeah, I’d gotten a decent amount. Who says two for one sales are a waste of time? “Nowhere in her instructions does it say we should stop for coffee and a chat. When I’ve got as much of it ready as I can before moonrise, I can actually have a rest. You know, something even we non-undead need to do from time to time.”

She went to protest, I even paused to watch the show I felt she was about to perform, but other than gaping a few times like a stunned fish, she stayed quiet. Wow, this Light of Isis was amazing if it could prevent the Queen of Whinge from speaking.

“Fine then,” she finally managed, a slight sulky tone to her voice. “But how am I meant to eat dinner?”

I sighed; I hadn’t honestly thought of that, going along the lines that she was dead. Yes she was an animated corpse right now, but dead was dead. You shouldn’t have to provide meals for them.

“Nowhere in my instructions does it say I have to feed you.” I muttered. Then feeling I should relent a little as she’d found it within herself to be nicer. “But how about I order pizza, and you eat it cold later. Surely even the Light of Isis can’t have cured you of your cold pizza habits.”

She sighed, but said no more for a moment. Didn’t even pout, which surprised me even more than the silence.

“I do wish you’d be more respectful of Isis and her purifying Light,” is all she eventually said as I was adding a few more knots to the back of the chair.

“Uh-huh.” I was more interested in making sure I’d done a good job, than listen to a lecture on appropriate religious respect. Especially from someone who in the past hadn’t held any respect for anyone or anything.

“And no dinner is fine; I don’t seem to have the need to eat that often anymore.” She continued, trying to watch me over her shoulder. “I won’t have you dissing cold pizza though.”

“Sure!” I said, standing back and wiping sweat from my brow and then my hands on my dress. I remembered I was still in one of my best ‘sombre but not kinky’ little black dresses, not having had a chance to change. So Roxanna’s wodge of cash was buying me a few clothes tomorrow, too. Why not! If I wasn’t allowed to go home until this was all over, she owed me at least a pair of jeans and clean underwear. I checked the instructions again. Okay, so all items purified, sister roped tightly into chair. Salt time! Boy I hoped the motel’s maid service wouldn’t be too pissed at me, or at least wouldn’t notice until after we’d left.

My Review

This one is a very interesting new take on vampires, and the troubles they cause. As well as, ridiculous family members and the lengths you will go for them 🙂 And on the side, it’s not just paranormal people hunting down vampires, think old school dracula, where normal, religious people use their beliefs and their will to fight the evil. The case here it the Goddess Isis, her followers, rid the world of vampires, but not the lovely Edward Cullen- no I don’t like him- or my fav Jean Claude-from Anita Blake- this is a disease and parasite that becomes a complete killing machine. Very intriguing about my love/hate relationship with vampers right 🙂

Stephanie starts the story on her way to bury her sister, who has been a bad new, pain in the @$$, bratty little sister. She comes off a little cold at first because she is relieved that her sister died, until you realize all the bad things her sister really did. LOL And then she meets the church people, and poof, her sister is dead, but not, and is attached to a very old, very evil vampire, and she needs to help rescue that bad sister all over again. It’s hilarious, all the things Stephanie says in her head while the priestess is explaining all of this to her. Stephanie has a fantastic sarcastic side, and she’s not as cold as she wants to seem.

Estella, the baby sister in rescue, Trishna, the over the top funny ghost of a monk who follows them, and of course the Mr Brandwyre, are our secondary characters, and with Stephanie, they made the story. The ridiculously hilarious curses that flew from their mouths, and the things they did, it made the story so awesome. Estella even gets to redeem herself to Stephanie, and the bad guy well, he’s still a bad guy so I won’t tell you 🙂

The writing flows well, and major props for finding some fresh creativity to go around vampires and the religious part, I thought would bother me, made it more interesting. I am definitely gunna watch out for book two, as this one was so much fun! 4.5 PAWS!!

Serpent on a Cross is Book One in a Jewish fantasy adventure series set in Medieval Eastern Europe.

Available at Amazon and BN

Excerpt:

Stomach churning, a sour taste in her mouth, Dennah hovered above the massacre from her nest in the ash tree she’d climbed at the edge of the forest.

Guilt twisted a knot in her belly as she remembered Mamen’s order to flee, but she couldn’t leave; she might be needed. So she’d climbed the tallest leafiest tree she could quickly find, its branches extending almost to the roof of their cottage. She fastened the leather bracer on her left forearm, finger guards on her drawing hand, in case she was forced to shoot the ash bow. After stringing it, she set it and the bag of arrows in the cradle of two limbs a little above her and out of easy reach so she wouldn’t be tempted to fire down upon the invaders.

From her perch she saw the soldiers enter the shtetl, thundering over the ramparts as if they were fagots; they crushed the golden fields of barley, and wheat, forcing the defenders to give way or be trampled beneath hammering hooves. Seeing the guardsmen attack the horses to unseat the soldiers, her heart raced. Get them! What right have they to attack our home?! Anger boiled just under her skin. Her gaze sharpened and the branch grew warm beneath the grip of her fingers. Though there was no breeze, the limbs of her tree swayed gently.

Almost without thought, as if her hands had a will of their own, she pulled bow and quiver within reach and nocked an arrow. With precise aim, she inhaled, drawing the cord back, hearing the soft familiar creak as it stretched. She released on the exhale. Gracefully, the arrow sped toward its target, a soldier who’d edged up behind Marek and raised his sword. The shaft caught him in the throat, sunk deep and broke through the skin at the back of his neck. He fell with a thud, blood mixing with fertile ground in a muddy pool beneath him. Relieved of its burden, the soldier’s horse veered away from the melee.

Marek, eyes narrowing, seemed to find her hidden in the ash. He nodded slightly and turned to face another foe. A surge of pleasure warmed her at his wordless approval. Then there was no more time for thought; only action. Again and again her arrows flew true; but she was careful to watch for enemy soldiers looking in her direction. Her stomach dropped when she saw first Yuri, then Selwyn, and finally Yakkov surrounded and disarmed. A quick inventory of her quiver yielded only four arrows. Not enough to free the guardsmen. I’m sorry.

My Review
This is an intriguing start to a new series. There’s swords and magical and it’s set on medieval times so the setting is so atmospheric. I won’t lie, it’s dark with lots of death and evil floating around and things are different back then. The main part of the story involves a girl who has magical powers and is hunted down by an evil ruler. He’s willing to kill everyone for that power and enslave everyone else. It’s quite an adventure!

There are some very good characters but there were so many that I kept forgetting who was who and which did what. I also maybe wanted the characters to be a little more in depth. And I know some of them die but I still like to have a little but of knowledge on them, it makes their death feel more significant and makes the more main characters reactions to those death more involved. There’s also a few other point of views from some side characters that at least help you get a better grip of the things coming into play. Greed, evil, bigotry, jealousy, all play a part in the blood war happening around these characters. But Dennah, the main character definitely stood out. You get a brief introduction of her as a child to know at least a back story that started it all. I loved her strong will and loyalty. She wants to save her mother and she’ll stop for nothing and no one until she accomplishes this. She of course has weaknesses, and her powers get out of control because of it, but she’s also so strong and courageous.

The plot is based on religions and cultures and why there were sides, but I got a little confused with some of the sayings and phrases and yet it’s still poetic and makes you appreciate that other cultures are still beautiful even if you don’t understand them. And the writing is very good, it flowed nicely, so I look forward to seeing where the story will go. It’s got me wondering about some things so I’ll be picking up book two 🙂 4 PAWS!!

author interview

WELCOME!! First, tell me a little about your book ….

Serpent on a Cross is the first book in a Jewish fantasy adventure series set in medieval Poland and Kievan Rus, in which a young woman, Dennah, a healer and archer just beginning to learn about her magic, goes on a quest to rescue her mother who has been taken captive by a powerful nobleman who raided their village.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated or did you always just know?

I’ve been writing little stories and poems since I was really young. I think the first time I remember being interested in writing was when I attempted to keep a younger child entertained with a fantastical story full of magic and dragons that I made up as I went along. I cannot remember a word of that story. Some years later, I realized that in order to remember the stories begging me to tell them, I needed to write them down.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

Some of the stories I have written notes for and that continue to percolate in my head are loosely based on events in my own life. But the time period, persons and places have been varied to protect the guilty.

How do you chose when/which characters die in your books?

I must admit that I’ve yet to kill off a character I’ve grown attached to. Perhaps that will change in the future, when I’ve learned to be more ruthless and more willing to “kill my darlings.” For now, whenever it feels the right time to kill someone in the story, I try to be sure it’s one of the tertiary characters. In Serpent on a Cross, I killed the Rabbi pretty early on. I really liked him, but he had to die to raise the stakes of just how far Tarkan Maksimov is willing to go in his thirst for power.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

Erika Johansen, author of The Queen of the Tearling, the first in a planned fantasy trilogy. The story has medieval tones, but is set centuries in the future. The story and protagonist, Queen Kelsea Raleigh, drew me in from the first page. I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.

Who do you look up to as a writer?

Nora Roberts. She has successfully written several different genres – romance, mystery, fantasy – and is world renowned. I love her books and her style of writing!

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your book?

I think I would have tried to stretch out the scenes with Dennah and Jeth a little more, and explained more about Skallon’s history. I’ll have to try and fill some of those gaps in the sequel.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Trying to schedule my writing time around my regular job, family time, and whatever life throws my way, and stick to that schedule is quite challenging. I like schedules to a certain extent, but I also like some spontaneity. It would be lovely to be able to write whenever and wherever I want, whenever and wherever the mood strikes, rather than having to try and schedule for it.

What book are you reading now? Or what genre?

Currently reading Festive in Death by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts), Mystery.

Who designed the cover? And do you help with them?

My cover designer is the extremely talented Loretta Matson. I had some idea and a couple sketches of what I wanted to cover to look like. She came up with some options based on my concepts. The present cover actually wasn’t one of her initial mock-ups, but the last one. I was torn between that design and the one that became the “emblem” on the back cover of the book. We asked Katherine Fye Sears, Booktrope’s CMO, for her input and decided to go with the present cover for the final design. Isn’t it gorgeous?!

Are there any books you think some of us should read, just because?

The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward; Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K. Hamilton; In Death Series by J.D. Robb; Elizabeth Chadwick, various Medieval novels.

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Thank you so much for your support! I truly hope you enjoy the book. And if you don’t, I’m interested in knowing why, whether it’s because you don’t care for the fantasy genre, history isn’t your thing, the Yiddish proverbs scattered throughout annoy you, or you simply don’t like my writing. Whatever the reason, thank you for picking it up and giving it a try. Getting out of our comfort zone helps to expand our horizons.

Her Aunt Babe is tutoring her in all things witchcraft, and her vampire partner Frankie is enjoying the benefits of daywalking, courtesy of a demon spell.

When a segment of the Rhode Island vampire population is marked for death by a tainted blood supply, Nina and her team race to find Patient Zero before the local vampire population is wiped out.

Filled with fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Nina and her group of supernatural misfits battle a surprising new enemy that threatens their very existence.

No wonder she still can’t get a date.

My Review

This has a very interesting concept with some fun characters. So what if you found out you had some powers you never knew about, and there are a few people like you who have other powers and they use those powers to save and help people. Yep like Batman, except no one knows they exist. LOL

So, Blue is a looser, and seriously, I thought I would hate her. She started out a wasted space, lost girl, and when she finally got her ass in gear, she turned into a much better person and a likable character. She’s somewhat of a mess, and she has one of the most powerful gifts out of everyone. She of course goes out drinking to pretend her life doesn’t suck one night, and meets Kasey, who touches her and they stop time. It was quite an experience. And that’s how she meets Kasey and his crew of Renegade heroes. She needed a lot of pushing, and an attitude adjustment, and at the end I cried for her, but she turned around enough that I say good character growth.

Kasey and his group are all a bunch of people who found each other because of their powers. I liked some of them, I didn’t like some of them, and yet, they have some fascinating powers that do amazing things. It’s such a way of living that’s gritty. Kasey was a nice guy, but I sometimes wanted him to maybe scream or throw a fit, something, LOL though I did stay team Kasey all the way 🙂

I liked the plot line and the twists at the end, especially revolving around Blue’s mom. Yep, I can’t say I cried about that though. I liked it and I look forward to the next book. 4 PAWS!

About the Author:

Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother.

Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider.

Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.
Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband.

If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.

Excerpts  from all 5 books:

Ribbon of Darkness:

Draven turned her around in his arms. “I’d suggest you watch

yourself if you wish to keep your clothes while we walk the next

few miles to the Pole. I have absolutely no qualms about taking

you right here, snow and all.” Draven leaned in close to her face.

His lips hovered over hers, causing Ribbon to bite her lip just so

she didn’t close the small distance between them. “Trust me, Donella,

when I tell you the cold will be the last thing on your pretty

little mind.” His eyes slid half-closed.

Tempting Clover:

“You’re already wet. I could claim you. Didn’t you say you wanted to have an orgasm, that it was torture?” Malik’s words came out low and sinister. Clover suddenly regretted ever wanting an orgasm, or at least telling him so.

She held her breath. Oh God. He’s going to take me. Clover fought harder and he let her break away. His laughter filled the air between them. Her chest heaved with fear, her breath coming in hard gasps.

“However, it wouldn’t satisfy me little morsel. You could never please me properly.” He walked past her laughing as he went to his lab to make more human potions.

Steele Your Soul:

He coaxed her lips apart for the briefest of moments before her hand came up and landed a stinging blow to his cheek. Amused, Joren laughed, a full belly laugh. The kind of thing he hadn’t done in ages. The lass was a feisty one; he’d give her credit. And oh so pretty when angered. Her cheeks had flushed a dark shade of pink, and her brown eyes darted all over the ship, anywhere but on his. He rubbed his cheek. She had a solid swing. He licked his lips to savor the sweet taste of her mouth.

“How dare you!”

“How dare I? Oh, elfess, I dare all the damn time. I’m a pirate.” He wanted to scoop her up and haul her off to his bed. But he wasn’t the kind of elf who took advantage in such a way—no, she’d come to him instead. He might even play hard to get. But she would come.

A Hint of Cayenne:

Hawthorn stood before her. Dark hooded eyes, broad shoulders filling up the space, and every bit the male she had seen a few hours ago. A jar of honey in his hand.

“What are you…how could––”

“I find you?” His voice rolled out calm and deep, slipping over her and moistening her panties.

“Yes. Find me.” She swallowed. She looked at the jar of honey and back to him. His gaze bore into hers, and she averted her eyes opening the door. “Come in.”

He walked over the threshold, his boots thumping softly on the floor. “I have a knack for finding the things I’m after.” He grinned.

Cocky bastard. She shut the door and crossed her arms. “And what are you doing here?” Inside, butterflies tossed in her stomach. She wanted him to say he’d come for her but, at the same time, was terrified at the thought of hearing him say it. Her mind jumped from one side to the other. Her hands fisted shirt where he couldn’t see.

“I told you I’d find you.” He took one long stride toward her. “We left things a little…” He took another step, and she backed up until she hit the wall. “Steamy.” His voice dropped so low she barely heard the last word. Her heart hammered at her ribcage.

“What…ah.” She cleared her throat. “What do you want?”

Thorn put his free hand on the wall beside her, and she melted into him. How had he gotten so elfing good at teasing her? “I want you of course,” he said, his lips barely above hers.

A Whisper of Rue:

“Rue, you can call me every name in your pretty little head but it won’t change anything. Afraid you’re stuck with me, and your decisions will affect everything. But you’re stubborn and you won’t see things my way instantly. You’ll need proof. I understand. But don’t say I didn’t warn you,” he stated.

Proof of what? He was playing games with her and she wasn’t in the elfing mood. He had no right to come in her home. No right to make demands on her. No right to invade every inch of her privacy. She wanted the earpiece out. Why’d she have to get all curious and put the stupid thing in to begin with? Her mother always said her curiosity would lead her to trouble one day and Rue had the dreadful sense that today was that day. “I don’t know why you chose me to do whatever it is you need. Probably something horrible. But quit fucking around and remove the spell.”

“You want it removed?”

“Yes.” She hissed the word. Her anger bubbled inside threatening to tear her apart, mainly because she couldn’t see the man attempting to control her.

“Then come and find me.”

My Review

Ok, so I really don’t want to get into each book, because to do a full review for each I’d probably spoil some damn good things for you, so with this I will write a summary for an overall. These are quick, sexy, intriguing, very fun books. Each one is a tale of different characters but set in the same world. The world building is quite good for being short stories. The all have a beginning and an end, so no worries, these have the perfect setting if you want something fun to read but not a whole lot of time. I also liked the writing. I swear I though I was going to either pass out from the suspense, or need a cold shower from the sexy. Oh yeah, it’s sexy LOL. I totally say GET IT! You won’t be disappointed!! 5 Elfy PAWS though please don’t tell them, or the crazy goblins I said elfy, I want to keep my life and my limbs intact 🙂

About the Author:

An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.

She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She’ll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.

Beware the sprites.

Follow the wisps.

But never look a drow elf king in the eyes…
