Blurb:
Two worlds in danger.

A Grand Witch behind bars.

A stunning Werewolf and a devilishly handsome Warlock’s pursuit for her affections.

You think you have it bad? Grand Witch Anna Wolfe awakens to find herself imprisoned by Micah, the Prince of Darkness. Micah’s on a quest for world domination—and it’s not just the Netherworld that’s in danger. The human world is threatened as well. Now, it’s up to Anna to escape from Micah’s clutches so she can locate The Scholars and an ancient book before both falls into the wrong hands.

With a fiercely loyal Werewolf and immensely powerful Warlock by her side, what can go wrong?

A lot apparently.

If fighting off the Prince of Darkness wasn’t enough, Anna’s emotions are a whirlwind, as she battles between what fate demands and what she actually wants.

EXERPT

…His magic continues its course through me, draining all of mine. I need to resist… to fight him. I have to do something before he has the chance to completely snuff me out or find The Scholars. My jaw clenches and my hands roll into tight balls. My shoulders tense, preparing myself for the upcoming battle. I focus all of my energy into stopping him. Bit by bit, my magic shoves its way past his like a bully on a schoolyard. His grip stiffens. A trickle of blood glides down the side of my forearm from his piercing fingernails.

“Go ahead, Anna, fight me. I guarantee it will only hurt you more.”

I throw every memory and emotion Micah has created or tarnished, tossing them into the raging furnace of hate burning inside of me. I slam my eyelids shut and Valen’s face pops inside my head. I need to get back to him. I squeeze my eyes tightly, channeling all the vigor I have, hoping to push Micah out. A fissure breaks right down the middle of his magic, allowing mine to explode to the surface. I feel his power retreat as mine conquers his. I flip my eyes open, stealing a glimpse of his face…

My Review:

I was hooked from book one! And now, book two is not only great, it’s exceeding my expectations and making me wait for book three is pretty much killing me!! Anna is captured at the end of book one, and starting in this one, you see who has her, where he has her, why he has her, and what he plans on doing with her. Let’s just say the creeptastic factor has just sky rocketed. WOAH. AND, everyone back at home is scrambling to try to figure out a way to get her out.  This one is also written a little different. Since Anna is captured, you can’t know what’s going on, so you still get Anna’s first person POV, but you also get a third person POV from the others at home. I think this made for an interesting take. Stupid Micah stealing Anna away has made this little interesting change very intriguing. 

Anna is learning to fight really hard, for her life, for her survival, and just outright for her. And Martello, Janie and Kristy are all doing their parts at home to try to help find ways to find Anna. Roman and Valen are now almost outright fighting for Anna’s attentions. Micah is just creepy. He’s definitely scary and I want to run away, quickly, with large steps. And as Anna learns more about herself, her love life, it’s quite complicated, and it’s only going to get worse, things are spiraling into somethings awesomely crazy! 

I just can’t talk about the guys right now. I mean, Micah may think he’s in the running, if only by force, but I just want him to die…. Valen and Roman, well now that’s a whole new set of wine glasses. I like them both, one more than the other, but I won’t say anything, as you just need to read this one on your own 🙂 

This one is maybe a little slower in the beginning as you are learning as Anna is about her kidnapping, but once things start up, you will need a seat belt to hold on to your seat. It is way fast paced and if I can just say, HOLY SHIT BATMAN-HOW YOU GUNNA LEAVE ME LIKE THAT AGAIN!!!! There is another, very epic, mouth opening, jaw dropping, pee on yourself cliff hanger. If you aren’t a fan of cliff hangers, this one may kill you. I’m so very impressed! A GREAT, PHENOMENAL, WHIRLWIND RIDING 5 PAWS!!

DESCRIPTION

A sister kidnapped. 

An impending war between Heaven and Hell looming around the corner. 

A Grand Witch who has no idea what she is. 

The Prince of Darkness’s obsession in claiming her. 

Two sinfully gorgeous men pulling her in two different directions. 

As the owner of the coffee shop Deja Brew in Savannah, Georgia, Anna thought her life was ordinary. That is until her sister is kidnapped by a demon, prompting two handsome men to march into her life unexpectedly. Valen, the sinfully gorgeous, overprotective werewolf who is Anna’s sworn guardian and Roman, the most handsome and powerful Warlock in the entire Netherworld. 

Suddenly, her world is stripped of everything she knows and replaced with frightening news about who she really is – a powerful Grand Witch. Now, it’s up to her to draw out her dormant magic, rescue her sister and stop an impending heavenly war threatening to eradicate the human race all while staying alive.

EXERPT

…Searing, damp stones press into my cheek, squishing my other eye closed. I sit up, wiping the nasty grime off my face. The slickness of it makes me wince. God knows what it is. I try to take a deep breath, but fail. Breathing is a chore in the dense, blistering air. It feels like I’m inhaling globs of boiling water. I stand, allowing my limbs time to regain their balance. Suddenly, I’m running down a passageway without any light to guide me… Thousands of butterflies take flight in my stomach as a current of air swiftly engulfs me. I’m falling at a high rate of speed, like the dip in a roller coaster, minus the excitement and safety harnesses. I try to scream, but panic hijacks my voice. I hit the bottom hard, miraculously unscathed.

I stand, wiping a sticky substance off my jeans. I try not to dwell on it. Lifting my arms, I extend them in front of me, searching for a doorway. My hands grope over the hundreds of clammy bricks surrounding me like the bottom of a well. In the loud silence, I hear my name, but Janie isn’t calling me. This voice is lower than a whisper, almost inaudible. Am I losing my mind? Confinement in closed quarters and pitch-black darkness have been known to do that. Again, I hear my name… Anna… It echoes off the tightly enclosed walls, and smacks my ears. It grows louder before abruptly stopping. A velvet voice soothes my sore ears, but makes me jump backwards. The back of my head rams the wall, forcing me to slink onto the ground. My muscles tense and my entire body begins to throb. I prop myself against the bricks, hoping it will cease. I attempt to fold my legs into my chest, but they rebel in pain. I focus my thoughts on survival, rather than the insects I know must be blanketing the ground…

My Review

What if I said I am soooo mad!!! Wanna know why…. BECAUSE I HAVE TO WAIT! This book was a refreshing, fun, adventurous read, and just when I was all serious, it’s the end. LOL Yeah I really liked this one. I know it’s going to be a series, because I will seriously put a cajun hurtin’ on someone if they don’t gimme the rest soon. 🙂 LOL OK, now that I’ve gotten that part out, let’s talk goodies. First, this story starts out with a normal girl. She isn’t anything special, she owns a cool coffee shop in Georgia, she has some pretty cool friends- who made me giggle lots- she has a slightly crazy and unhinged family, but they are sweet… And then one day she starts getting these weird messages that someone is coming for her. AND THEN her world literally spins painfully out of control. 

Anna is complicated. I really liked her character, except I swear to God, if she doesn’t get smart and stop making the most STUPID decisions ever, I am going to kick her… yeah ok. LOL First, I like her because she has a normal every day life. She’s insecure from the last bad news dude, but she’s doing her thing with her coffee shop, and she has a fun girl friend who keeps her upbeat, and my favorite is her gay bartending friend who literally made the story for me. I like that she does grow as a character… except… seriously, when people are out to get you, and the person trying to protect you say “stay here”… DO NOT go running off by yourself… like ten times. HAHAHAHA This of course causes lots of actions scenes to come about, but I totally wanted to punch her in the face. She talks about not being the stupid girl in the horror movies she watches, and then she does it. And yet, I can’t find it in myself to dislike her. She’s grown on me, and she’s an interesting character, and I really want her to make it out of her predicament. 🙂 

Valen and Roman are HAWT!!! H-O-TTTTTTT!!! Seriously. I am of course all Team Valen- I mean come on, he’s a werewolf so of course I chose him. BUT, Roman is seriously got a few of my hairs kinked. He’s hot in a totally different way. Valen is the sweet, kind, over protective WOLF, who of course goes hot and cold and I wanna beat him up too. LOL Then Roman is Mr Serious face, who is all about learning the hard way, but dude is like walking Man Candy! GO TEAM VALEN…. BUT I really hope Team Roman gets a good girl 🙂 Maybe Kristi or Janie 🙂 

Then there’s Micah…. Soooo, you know the saying “The devil in the church hat”…. Dude is smoking hot, seriously powerful, and TOTALLY EVIL CRAY CRAY!!! And it only gets worse from there. I have a feeling Lucifer is going to make an appearance soon and I totally can’t wait to see how that’s gunna play out. 🙂 Anyways, the plot- major interesting. I wasn’t expecting that last little twist. And seriously, that ending, you are totally killing me. Well placed cliff hanger. I need some hints soon though. I am very intrigued with how the author writes. It’s easy which makes the flow of the book so much better. I am seriously excited for book two to come out, even if I’m also impatient. I recommend this to anyone who likes paranormals and urban fantasy. It’s got almost everything you could want! 5 WOLFISHLY, MAGICALLY DELICIOUS PAWS !!!

Excerpt: 

Heat flows under my skin like lava, boiling in my chest. I shift in the prison chair, hoping to displace my sudden fury. Micah turns back to me, smiling like a child.

“Ah, Valen,” he smiles coyly, “your Achilles heel.”

Hearing Valen’s name passing through his repulsive lips angers me more. “I’m going to kill you,” I promise him.

Micah strides over to me, bending down until he’s right next to my ear. “I’m going to find him Anna… then I’m going to torture him over and over again while you watch,” he whispers softly, lightly grazing my earlobe with his lip. “I’m going to kill him right in front of you and once I’m finished with him, I am going to kill all of your family and friends—one by one, until you have no one left but me,” he finishes. “You are mine Anna, and nothing you can do will ever change that.”

My jaw tightens and I grind my teeth in anger. I squirm violently, attempting to spell the bindings off me. Rage takes over, blinding me of all rational thoughts. I need to get out of this chair and save Valen—as well as everyone else. The constraints refuse to budge and my magic is still unresponsive. I calm down unwillingly, deciding to conserve my energy. I glower at Micah as he throws his head back, laughing victoriously.

Please Forgive me, but this was one of those books I was supposed to review during my 2 week sick period, I’m still getting better and on meds ;/. I am catching up, so I will have my review for this book really soon- I’ve already started it and LOVE it just as much as the first! I’ll get to you guys as soon as possible!

Book Trailer http://youtu.be/sMTHPYprB0k

Excerpt:

It happens practically every night. My pleasant dreams take on a life of their own, morphing into terrifying nightmares. They are the tsunamis of the dream ocean, spinning me in their churning tides before thrusting me awake, whereupon I find myself drenched in a pool of sweat, and gasping for air. Abandoning my worry isn’t an option since a demonic element is the driving force behind them. It sounds crazy, but even as a child, a special darkness visited me in my dreams. Is it a warning? Or a threat? Your guess is as good as mine.

They always began the exact same way – I’m being hurled into a pitch-black hole of nothingness. I open my sleepy eyes, allowing them time to adjust. Isolation surrounds me, reminding me how unprepared I am for this place. A dim, orange light cuts through the dark abyss like a blade. I squint, realizing it’s much further than it appears. I attempt to move my feet, but they stubbornly refuse. I try a second time, and manage to overcome the terror that is binding them. One step becomes two and I find myself walking at a cautious pace, listening for the faintest sound. I haven’t the slightest idea where I am, which makes me suspicious of everything. My nose wrinkles as I walk through a large pocket of air that reeks with an overpowering odor of burnt hair. I swing and wave my hands, hoping to break up the stench, but to no avail. What could be the source of such a rank smell? I’m not sure I want to know the answer. I quickly push the thought away. Curiosity can be dangerous when it comes between reality and panic.

I tread delicately, hoping no one hears me. I don’t think I’m alone, and I find some comfort in the darkness. Whatever is with me is out of my sight, and therefore, out of my mind. I never thought I would find a cliché so helpful to me until now. I wrap my thoughts around it, mustering up the courage to carry on. The orange light grows, compelling me to pick up my pace. I glance at my surroundings, unsure of what I might find. The curved, dank walls and concrete blocks beneath my feet are bare, but fortunately, no revolting creatures dangle from the ceiling or slither past my feet, although I am thinking of them! Where the hell am I? Dreams have a funny way of camouflaging life’s problems, but this is ridiculous!

A glint of light from the ashen wall catches my eye. I step closer to it, noticing how the curved cobbles gently mold my feet to their shapes. Small, rectangular stones that suggest their age goes well beyond the medieval era are arrayed in front of me. A dense tackiness catches the small granules of little dust motes that are reflected by the light here. Some kind of liquid begins to seep from one of the cracks in the stones, and I lower my head to inspect it. The crimson liquid slides sluggishly, like a snail, towards the ground. Leaning closer, I realize I’m staring at blood, and I gasp, jumping backwards. My heart thuds loudly in my chest as my adrenaline speeds through my veins like a racecar. My eyes skip around, noticing thousands of little red capillaries materializing all over the wall. An overwhelming paranoia that the tunnel will cave in torments my mind. I turn and dash towards the light, fueled by my distress. My lungs scream for air as I push myself further and faster than ever.

The orange light surrounds a large opening. Skidding to a stop, I barely avoid falling over the ledge at the cave’s entrance. I stare out at a fiery, scarlet landscape that appears infinite, and sends me a menacing warning. I lean forward when a wall of intense heat slugs me in the face, forcing me backwards a few inches. The air is dense, and it’s hard to catch my breath. Sweat beads on my brow, evaporating before I can wipe it away. I scan the ravaged scenery, watching pillars of fire erupt from the ground before disappearing into the onyx sky, rimmed in red. A chain of mountains with jagged cliffs, emerge straight up from the bloodshot dirt. Floating objects I don’t wish to know about, travel in an orbit, weaving in and out through the rough terrain. I’m in a completely different world. My terror lingers, refusing to go away. A raging river of lava slices through the valley, determined to leave its own mark in the middle of this inferno. I stroll down a steep trail that leads directly to the unusual river. I stop long before reaching its banks, and gradually inch my way closer. My eyes drift over to the whirling mass of disturbing beauty. Deep shades of red and orange mesh with each other, creating a horrid kaleidoscope of angry colors. Flashes of distorted images of my family and friends bob in and out of the blazing lava. I watch in horror as the greedy river of fire consumes them without remorse. Despite my attempts to reach in, my hand snaps back after feeling the agonizing heat. I step backwards, staring in numb bewilderment. I know I’m dreaming, but it doesn’t lessen my anxiety. My back slams into something solid and unyielding. Long, crooked fingers wrap around the tops of my tiny shoulders like spiders. Suffering and emptiness engulf me. My heart pounds like a hammer as my limbs melt into rubber. The hands squeeze me hard, sending excruciating pain throughout my entire back. The snapping of my shoulders, cracking like glass, shatters the unbearable stillness.

My Review:

What if I said I am soooo mad!!! Wanna know why…. BECAUSE I HAVE TO WAIT! This book was a refreshing, fun, adventurous read, and just when I was all serious, it’s the end. LOL Yeah I really liked this one. I know it’s going to be a series, because I will seriously put a cajun hurtin’ on someone if they don’t gimme the rest soon. 🙂 LOL OK, now that I’ve gotten that part out, let’s talk goodies. First, this story starts out with a normal girl. She isn’t anything special, she owns a cool coffee shop in Georgia, she has some pretty cool friends- who made me giggle lots- she has a slightly crazy and unhinged family, but they are sweet… And then one day she starts getting these weird messages that someone is coming for her. AND THEN her world literally spins painfully out of control. 

Anna is complicated. I really liked her character, except I swear to God, if she doesn’t get smart and stop making the most STUPID decisions ever, I am going to kick her… yeah ok. LOL First, I like her because she has a normal every day life. She’s insecure from the last bad news dude, but she’s doing her thing with her coffee shop, and she has a fun girl friend who keeps her upbeat, and my favorite is her gay bartending friend who literally made the story for me. I like that she does grow as a character… except… seriously, when people are out to get you, and the person trying to protect you say “stay here”… DO NOT go running off by yourself… like ten times. HAHAHAHA This of course causes lots of actions scenes to come about, but I totally wanted to punch her in the face. She talks about not being the stupid girl in the horror movies she watches, and then she does it. And yet, I can’t find it in myself to dislike her. She’s grown on me, and she’s an interesting character, and I really want her to make it out of her predicament. 🙂 

Valen and Roman are HAWT!!! H-O-TTTTTTT!!! Seriously. I am of course all Team Valen- I mean come on, he’s a werewolf so of course I chose him. BUT, Roman is seriously got a few of my hairs kinked. He’s hot in a totally different way. Valen is the sweet, kind, over protective WOLF, who of course goes hot and cold and I wanna beat him up too. LOL Then Roman is Mr Serious face, who is all about learning the hard way, but dude is like walking Man Candy! GO TEAM VALEN…. BUT I really hope Team Roman gets a good girl 🙂 Maybe Kristi or Janie 🙂 

Then there’s Micah…. Soooo, you know the saying “The devil in the church hat”…. Dude is smoking hot, seriously powerful, and TOTALLY EVIL CRAY CRAY!!! And it only gets worse from there. I have a feeling Lucifer is going to make an appearance soon and I totally can’t wait to see how that’s gunna play out. 🙂 Anyways, the plot- major interesting. I wasn’t expecting that last little twist. And seriously, that ending, you are totally killing me. Well placed cliff hanger. I need some hints soon though. I am very intrigued with how the author writes. It’s easy which makes the flow of the book so much better. I am seriously excited for book two to come out, even if I’m also impatient. I recommend this to anyone who likes paranormals and urban fantasy. It’s got almost everything you could want! 5 WOLFISHLY, MAGICALLY DELICIOUS!!!

For those of you who don’t know, this city is an awesomely haunted place! This healthy paranormal addiction has provided me the motivation to write my first book, “I’ll Be Damned.”

I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and I’m currently working on the Anna Wolfe Series.
