Nature’s  Destiny (Nature’s  Destiny #1)

Blurb:

My  life  was  changing,  morphing  into  something  greater  than  I  could  have  anticipated.  I  was becoming  something  I  didn’t  recognise  as  myself  anymore.  A  Werewolf.
I  was  different.
Bitten.
‚ÄėHybrid‚Äô ¬†was ¬†what ¬†they ¬†called ¬†me, ¬†and ¬†the ¬†weight ¬†that ¬†rested ¬†against ¬†that ¬†one ¬†word ¬†was crippling. ¬†They ¬†depended¬† on ¬†me ¬†to ¬†bring ¬†them ¬†safety. ¬†What ¬†made ¬†me ¬†so ¬†special?
Oh,  that’s  right.  My  destiny.
I  was  sucked  into  a  world  I’d  had  no  idea  existed.  Twenty-one  years  as  a  human,  and  this was  what  I  found  out.
My  travelling  plans,  my  writing  degree,  all  of  it  was  gone  within  one  night.  One  evil  night that  robbed  my  humanity.
I  wasn’t  completely  sour.  Life  had  been  unfair  a  while  ago,  only  now  I’d  had  something worth  fighting  for  besides  myself.  Something  to  live  for.
I  was  afraid  for  the  others.  I  couldn’t  let  them  down.  I  wouldn’t  let  them  down.
I’d  gone  to  bed  a  human  and  woken  up  a  Werewolf.
A  special  Werewolf.
A  Hybrid.

My Review:

So my fascination with werewolves just continues. ¬†And this book is an excellent addition to my obsession! This is the story of a normal girl, who got bitten, we think on accident at first, and it was such an occurrence that she really didn’t grasp what was going on until she could see it for herself. She thinks she’s going crazy, she’s trying to figure out why things are happening the way they are, and how she can save herself and her new packmates. And there’s one thing I actually really grasped, that a lot of authors don’t do. When someone has some supernatural thing happen to them that they have to hide, usually they just go into hiding. But with Luna, she was planning on travelling the world, so she literally wrapped up her life. She had already had a last day at work, she told her best friend goodbye for now, she included her parents in her going away. So when she dropped off the grid, it didn’t send the world into panic and amber alerts. I swear that was brilliant. I also swear that if I did that, half my family, the cops, my boss, would hunt me down and beat me up for doing just that, so I must say, way to NOT have a single plot hole!ūüôā HA, ok back to the moment!¬†

Luna is finishing up her college degree, though being from across the pond, they call it Uni… Yeah, we damn Americans call it school LOL Giggle. She’s very smart, she’s very responsible, she’s very neat and tidy and in line. And then she gets bitten. She misses almost a whole day of school right before big exams, she’s seeing things, she’s hearing things, she’s SMELLING things. She’s flustered. It’s kinda funny, but not, cuz I would pee myself if this happened. And overall, she’s strong. She’s coming to terms with things, she’s learning about Riley’s and his pack, and what that all entails. She’s brave, and she also figures out, she’s loyal too. She’s got a big heart, and she loves food, so she could be my bestie! She’s had an interesting childhood, and some rough patches, but she is growing and coming to terms with things and she’s quite a likable character. She’s also got one HAWT werewolf after herūüôā It’s also quite nice to see a girl make the boy work for it! LOL And the relationship she developed with Riley’s sisters and Roxy have such an endearing quality.¬†

Riley is a HAWT piece. Seriously. He’s alpha, but he’s also young, like when he laughs at her for falling. So not manlyūüôā But he’s very loyal and caring, and he can be quite the gentleman. He’s also quite smart, and of course, over protective, but he’s also quite free for being an alpha. He has a tree house for goodness sakes. ummm, I wanna go to that tree house, by the way! And now, he’s going to help Luna, and help the pack, and try to make sure everyone makes it out alive and unharmed with this new threat coming to pass. There are also some great other wolves that come into play with Riley, and I look forward to seeing more of the pack as this series grows!¬†
The writing is great. It flows well, it made for an easy quick read, and like I said, the writer thought about things that most don’t, like covering your tracks when you go wolfy.ūüôā It’s also got action, suspense, humor-there’s some fnny werewolves around in here- and a great romance that will have you steaming.ūüėČ And I seriously cannot wait to see where the author is going to go with her ending. You just KNOW something crazy is going to come from this, and no worries kids, there’s no big cliff hanger, just a perfect opening to the mystery that will continue. It’s perfect. AND it’s got a nice little wrap up. Which means I am of course going to stalk this author until she gives me more goodies! I am so excited to have this one, and I am even more excited to know there will be MORE! GIMME GIMME!ūüôā a PERFECT 5 WOLFY PAWS :)¬†

Guest Post: 

When¬† I¬† started¬† writing¬† this¬† book¬† I¬† mostly¬† used¬† YouTube¬† to¬† find¬† my¬† songs.¬† I¬† can‚Äôt¬† even¬† begin¬† to¬† tell¬† you¬† how¬† frustrated¬† I¬† often¬† got¬† after¬† one¬† song¬† ended¬† and¬† then¬† I‚Äôd¬† search¬† for¬† hours¬† for¬† another.¬† Now¬† I¬† use¬† Spotify, ¬†and¬† it‚Äôs¬†¬† been¬† the¬† best¬† transition¬† ever!¬† Usually¬† when¬† I¬† write,¬† I‚Äôll¬† have¬† some¬† instrumental¬† music¬† (often¬† piano)¬† playing¬† to¬† help¬† me¬† get¬† into¬† the¬† ‚Äėzone‚Äô,¬† but¬†¬† there‚Äôve¬† been ¬†plenty¬† of songs¬† that¬† have¬† guided¬† me¬† along¬† with¬† Nature‚Äôs¬† Destiny‚Äôs¬† journey.¬† Also,¬† you¬† can¬† follow¬† me¬† on¬† Spotify¬† to¬† see¬† what¬† I‚Äôm¬† listening¬† to¬† whilst¬† writing¬† the¬† sequel!¬†

Imagine¬† Dragons¬† –¬† Demons¬†¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWRsgZuwf_8
This ¬†song ¬†actually ¬†became ¬†the ¬†foundations ¬†whilst ¬†I ¬†built ¬†the storyline. ¬†It‚Äôs ¬†where ¬†the ¬†idea ¬†flourished, ¬†especially ¬†the ¬†series ¬†as¬† a¬† whole. ¬†The ¬†lyrics ¬†‚ÄúWhen ¬†you ¬†feel ¬†my ¬†heat, ¬†look ¬†into ¬†my ¬†eyes, ¬†it‚Äôs ¬†where ¬†my ¬†demons ¬†hide,‚ÄĚ ¬†captivated ¬†so ¬†much ¬†of ¬†my ¬†attention. ¬†There ¬†are ¬†so ¬†many characters ¬†that ¬†can ¬†refer ¬†to ¬†this, ¬†but ¬†I ¬†initially ¬†chose ¬†it ¬†for ¬†Riley. ¬†This ¬†song ¬†will ¬†definitely repeat ¬†in ¬†future ¬†playlists, ¬†these ¬†lyrics ¬†especially ¬†‚ÄúDon‚Äôt ¬†wanna ¬†let ¬†you ¬†down, ¬†but ¬†I ¬†am ¬†hell bound‚Ķ‚ÄĚ ¬†will ¬†have ¬†some ¬†relation ¬†to ¬†Luna‚Äôs ¬†destiny. ¬†What ¬†that ¬†is, ¬†you‚Äôll ¬†have ¬†to ¬†read ¬†the novel ¬†to ¬†find ¬†out!

Carrie¬† Underwood¬† –¬† Sometimes¬† You¬† Leave¬†http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u970snfJB4

I¬† loved ¬†this ¬†song ¬†because ¬†it ¬†clarified ¬†Luna‚Äôs ¬†past, ¬†for ¬†me, ¬†perfectly. ¬†It ¬†fit ¬†with ¬†how ¬†someone could ¬†have ¬†such ¬†an ¬†impact ¬†on ¬†your ¬†life, ¬†that ¬†it ¬†becomes ¬†a ¬†path ¬†to ¬†your ¬†future. ¬†The ¬†lyrics, ¬†‚ÄúAll ¬†this ¬†time ¬†I‚Äôve ¬†spent ¬†staring ¬†at ¬†the ¬†door, ¬†I ¬†never ¬†had ¬†the ¬†strength‚Ķ‚ÄĚ ¬†That ¬†small ¬†phrase ¬†felt ¬†like ¬†Luna‚Äôs ¬†entrapment, ¬†how ¬†her ¬†fears ¬†manifested ¬†inside ¬†her ¬†to ¬†keep ¬†her ¬†away ¬†from ¬†the ¬†world ¬†before ¬†she ¬†had ¬†help. ¬†Also, ¬†this ¬†song ¬†is ¬†reminiscent ¬†of ¬†her ¬†overcoming ¬†her ¬†issues, ¬†‚ÄúBut now ¬†I‚Äôm ¬†done.‚ÄĚ ¬†It‚Äôs ¬†such ¬†a ¬†beautiful ¬†song.

Bon¬† Jovi¬† –¬† Have¬† A¬† Little¬† Faith¬† In¬† Me¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siaq1ar7E0s
This ¬†song ¬†calls ¬†to ¬†Luna, ¬†for ¬†her ¬†to ¬†trust ¬†Riley ¬†and ¬†to ¬†see ¬†how ¬†different ¬†he ¬†is ¬†from ¬†what ¬†she‚Äôs ¬†known ¬†in ¬†her ¬†past. ¬†‚ÄúI ¬†will ¬†catch, ¬†I ¬†will ¬†catch ¬†your ¬†fall, ¬†just ¬†have ¬†a ¬†little ¬†faith ¬†in ¬†me.‚ÄĚ

Skillet¬† –¬† Hero¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9x2CHQClTU
Though  the  lyrics  claim  about  not  being  a  superhuman,  and  in  this  case  my  characters  are, the  overall  feel  for  the  song  still  stands  the  same.  They  need  a  hero,  but  who  will  it  be?

Carrie¬† Underwood¬† –¬† Look¬† At¬† Me¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDj7hiQza2A
Actually,  the  lyrics  in  this  song  are  pretty  self-explanatory.  It’s  how  Luna  feels  for  Riley.

Chopin¬† –¬† Raindrops¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcIMvliWM2I
This  classical  piano  piece  is  so  beautifully  moving  that  to  add  it  into  a  written  scene  it  enhances  its  authenticity.  It  captivates  emotions  so  cleanly  that  when  I  wrote  it  into  Luna’s  mood  I  knew  the  music  would  speak  for  me.  When  you  find  it,  I  hope  you  see  what  I  mean.

Skillet¬† –¬† Fire¬† and¬† Fury¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0DTtf1–VE
This¬† song¬† I¬† refer¬† to¬† as¬† Nature‚Äôs¬† Destiny‚Äôs¬† theme¬† tune.¬† You¬† know,¬† the¬† one¬† where¬† it¬† sums¬† it¬† all¬† up?¬† When¬† I¬† first¬† heard¬† it¬† I¬† felt¬† like¬† it¬† was¬† made¬† specifically¬† for¬† me.¬† (I¬† know¬† it¬† wasn‚Äôt.)¬† It‚Äôs¬† everything¬† Luna¬† feels¬† and¬† needs.¬† ‚ÄúYou¬† can¬† stop¬† the¬† aching,¬† ‚Äėcause¬† you‚Äôre¬† the¬† one¬† I¬† need,‚Ä̬† is¬† how¬† she¬† needs¬† Riley¬† in¬† her¬† life.¬† How¬† he¬† is¬† the one¬† that¬† calms¬† her.¬†

That’s  my  condensed  playlist,  and  I’m  curious.  What  would  you  pick?

Maghon has two theme songs that just kind of fit, since you have lovely taste with Skillet!ūüôā I am choosing Shinedown’s¬†Amaryllis and I’ll Follow You¬†and I’m also choosing their stripped versions because Luna blooms beautifully once she finds Riley, and then I think Riley and Luna would do anything for each otherūüôā So, here’s my video choices. I have TONS more, but for today, the author’s choices are AWESOME so I’ll leave it at that :)¬†

Vampires Vs Werewolf Blog Hop

20130113-192013.jpg
Vampires and Werewolves. They are two of the most well known and popular paranormal creatures today. Bones from Night Huntress (Chapter 32 anyone? *wink*) or Alcide Herveaux from the Sookie Stackhouse series, etc. This hop is all about the vampires and werewolves! Are you a vampire lover or werewolf lover?

If you had to choose would you cuddle up with your sexy dangerous vampire throughout the long nights or would you rather a sexy testosterone filled dominate werewolf that let out the most interesting of growls at *ahem* fun moments?

I have to admit it is a hard choice I know! I do so love both! But if you had to choose: vampires or werewolves?

Most of you know, I am always a werewolf fan! BUT- every once in a while, there’s a vamp that comes along and steals a little piece of my heartūüôā so now is your chance to tell me whose side your on!!

Here’s some more awesome people participating!!



the following link which enables anyone to access this page and grab the appropriate code for his own type of blog to shareūüôā

get the InLinkz code

Ok, now that I’ve shown you the players, lets play the game! Let me tell you why I’m always a werewolf fan…
‚ÄĘwolves are my all time favorite animal. I love them heart and soul, so why wouldn’t I wanna be able to change into the animal I love mostūüôā
‚ÄĘI’m always cold- I know I live in the freaking hottest place ever- but I’m still always cold… Weres are usually hotter than most and vampers are cold… Not a good combination for me LOL
‚ÄĘI enjoy nature and outside and I hate politics and I’m very family oriented… Vampers are solitary and always about espionage and conspiracies hahaha I’d be the first vamp killed as cannon fodder!
‚ÄĘI am surrounded by animals- by choice- so of course a wolf pack is cooler than a buncha people who wanna bite me… Plus I can save a wolf’s life but I don’t do people… Unless you eat doggie treats! HA!!!
‚ÄĘ I’m average, simple and chubby cuz I like my culture’s food- this would be unacceptable for a vamp- they are always pretty!! I do NOT primp, hell I don’t fix my hair or wear makeup unless its a major special occasion!
‚ÄĘlast but not least, I don’t want to live forever! I happen to like mortality because it makes life and it’s little surprises mean so much more… Trust me, I will be the crazy granny, with an oxygen pump, a mixed drink, and a heavy purse who beats up people with it when I’m old- DO YOU want that as a vampire who could live forever… I don’t think so!! And I’ll probably wear the fuzzy slippers and have blue hair with rollers!! Hahahahahaha

So… Do you need any more reasons for me to chose the werewolf side? Lawd I’m scared if you do!! LOL so… I’m ready to give something away. I’d like for your comment to tell me which side you chose and why. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. I’d also like for you to tell me if you’re US or international… Because I’m also going to let you chose your winningsūüôā so you can say… you’re Bob from England and you wanna win Guilty Pleasure by Laurell K Hamilton bc you just love Jean Claude cuz he’s the best vampire!! Lol I’m personally a Richard and Jason fan, but even I love me some Jean Claude. I’m going to try to make it easily accessible for everyone like a book from the Book Depository or amazon or if it’s new and in hard back maybe a digital copy! So go forth and comment and then go to more sites participating and comment there too!!!ūüôā

Good luck everyone and happy reading!! Later Gators!!

Another Personal Note with Reviews!

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday! Today I am gunna touch on something that some of you may know about and some of you may not. First, I WILL NOT be changing any review policies. I will review for anyone who asks nicely- that’s ALL TYPES OF PUBLISHED AUTHORS! Some things have been happening in the blogging world, and a lot of people are no longer working with self published authors, due to one meanie! I love finding new authors, and working with anyone, no matter what type of publishing they do. I am so sorry for those of you who have been singled out, and I really hope that most people know that not all of us are bad. I blog as a hobby, so I PROMISE to always review ANY book given to me for this purpose, sometimes it just may take a little time, as I have a full time job, a part time job, and a whole lot of crazy personal things going on at the time. I WILL NEVER not review something given to me. If I cannot review immediately, or don’t think I will like it, I will tell you this before I take a book from you. Also, I WILL NOT post negative reviews. Yes, I know some people want the negative parts, but I will find A NICE WAY to say something I don’t like. If I really do not like the book, I will tell you this, as that is not who I am. I DO NOT like to say bad things about people, or books, or writing style, etc. There are also some genres I don’t like, so I’ll let you know someone I trust who does. You can use that reference if you chose to or not.

BLAH! so with all that said, LOL, I will now talk in normal speak. I have read several books in the last months, and haven’t had a spot to post my reviews, so today, I will do this. And to make it easy, I will NOT post the whole review, but I will leave you a link, with my rating, for you to check out. I have several books, which would make for a very large post, and no one wants to read through that. LOL Also, I’m gunna give you a few things to look forward to as well. July was a very busy month with lots of blog tours and posts, August and September will probably be a little less busy, with the new house thing, new job thing, AAD2012, etc. I haven’t been signing up for too many. I will try my hardest to keep my blog up though, as without giveaways and fun stuff, nobody wants to hang out with me hahahahaha so now, let’s get on with it!

I will post a picture of the cover, and you can click each cover and it will take you to my review on goodreads.

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves, #1)

Blood Rites (The Grey Wolves, #2)

Just One Drop (The Grey Wolves, #3)

I decided some of you should see some of my favorite quotes from these books!! enjoy!ūüôā

;

‚ÄúKiss me, k-k-kiss me, infect me with your love, and fill me with your poison, take me, t-t-take me, wanna be your victim, ready for abduction boy, you’re a werewolf, your touch is so furry, its supernatural, extra-werewolf-iestrial,” Jen sung as loud as she could.‚ÄĚ ‚Äē Quinn Loftis, Blood Rites
Incase you didn’t catch on, Jen sings this in the tune of Katy Perry’s ET LOL oh boy, fantastic scene!
‚ÄúAlright then, I guess that‚Äôs settled,‚ÄĚ Lilly said, then she turned to Fane, ‚ÄúLay a paw on my little girl and you will be a three legged Lassie, got it?‚ÄĚ Fane winced and then asked, ‚ÄúYou both do realize I‚Äôm a wolf not a dog right?‚ÄĚ ‚Äē Quinn Loftis, Prince of Wolves
tags: fane, jaque, lilly
‚ÄúShe gets a man who will love her completely and faithfully. She gets a man who will not only save her life, but lay down his own to keep her safe. He will provide for her no matter the cost, he will shelter her against all storms that come their way, he will be the one to bring a smile to her face when no one else can. She gets a friend, a lover, a mate, the only man in this world who can complete her and give her the other half of her soul.‚ÄĚ ‚Äē Quinn Loftis, Blood Rites
tags: mates
‚ÄúWhen you say gorgeous,‚ÄĚ Jen started, ‚Äúare we talking Brad Pitt boyish good looks, or Johnny Depp make ya want to slap somebody?‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúNo, we‚Äôre talking Brad and Johnny need to bow down and recognize‚ÄĚ Jacque answered.
‚Äē Quinn Loftis, Prince of Wolves
tags: humor
‚ÄúDo all of you think we have fleas?” Decebel asked as he looked at Jen and Sally.
going floating, leave my body glowing.” “Katy Perry? She’s singing Katy Perry in the hospital bathroom. Just when you think you’ve seen it all,” Sally mumbled. She knocked on the door again. Still no answer, so she started banging. Then she was banging and hollering, “JEN! OPEN THE FREAKING DOOR!” Wouldn’t you know, she just sang louder. Why am I not surprised, she thought.‚ÄĚ ‚Äē Quinn Loftis, Blood Rites
ok, I actually have a ton more quoted, but I will have to save them for another timeūüôā seriously, if you aren’t liking these, we can no longer be friends LOLūüôā ok, and for my last book, yes it’s another werewolf book. If you hadn’t noticed, I LOVE WEREWOLVES!!!ūüôā

Thanks so much for stopping my today and listening to me blab and happy reading everyone!!ūüôā

Book Bully Blog Tour…

Hello everyone, I am going to be explaining why each of you should read my series that I have picked & then I’ll give it away to someone luckyūüôā I couldn’t chose just one, so I am gunna do a short, but meaningful, argument for each series that I am giving awayūüôā And now, on to the showūüôā
My First series I chose is the Elemental Assassin (Gin Blanco) Series

Spider

 

Web of Lies

 

Venom

 

Tangled Threads

 

Spider

I chose this series because it’s one of the first series I can say I was surprised by all the elements. Not too many authors give these kind of powers and get this specific with how they work. So, that’s what originally got me to pick up the book (the first one). I hadn’t heard of Jennifer Estep yet, and so I read the first one, and working at a used book store, I talked about it CONSTANTLY! I LOVE Gin! I love everything she stands for, and even though I could never kill someone, I sure wish I could sometimes, and just because she kills for a living doesn’t mean she is a bad person. As the series continues, she HELPS people, good, honest, needful people! And she doesn’t put up with anyone’s crap. She may stay quiet then, but boy does she hold a grudge FOREVER! This will not go unanswered. Now, in the first couple of books, she has a love interest of Donovan (boo!!!). I don’t know why, but I knew something bad was gunna happen, and he was gunna break her heart, and of course it did…. but you know there is always something better on the other side of doors and I LOVE OWEN!!!!! I like everything he stands for too. And I am pretty sure, that even though I love Gin, who couldn’t, my favorite character to read about would be Mr. Finnegan Laneūüôā There is so much tragedy in these books sometimes (that makes for good plots, so keep it up Ms. Estep), Finn never lets things get him down. Even if he is a complete player, and womanizer, I LOVE HIM! He’s a great big foster brother to Gin, and everyone always meets their match, and boy is it a COMPLETE suprise who his match is! There is so many twists and turns, and fun times, and cheerful times, and sad times. These books can give you every emotion! If what I have said about these books hasn’t convinced you to read them yet, then you are so full of…. ummm, hahahaha ok, so just go get these books so I don’t have to get innappropriate! And the good news is, the Next Book- By a Thread will be release February 28, 2012 (that’s not too long a wait) and it’s SO PRETTY!!!ūüôā

By a Thread-releasing 2/28/2012

Now, for this give away (I’m sorry to my international friends, but postage is OUTRAGEOUS– but keep reading for your give away) I am giving a paperback copy of THE WHOLE SERIES… that’s ALL 5 books to some lucky kid!!ūüôā Yep, I am so excited! This means you will have the entire series to hold in your hand and read & re-read…. I think I’ve reread this series at least 5 timesūüôā The link for the google doc form is below, which means all ya gotta do is fill it out. If there are a whole lot of responses, then I will get random.org to pick someone for meūüôā I wish everyone good luck and happy readingūüôā

Now, to continue with the give aways, yep, this one will be international to anyone who can receive kindle book gifts via e-mail!!! OOOOOHHH, excited yet?

Since I said I couldn’t chose, I was being serious, I am gunna do 3 winners (that’s one series for each winner) each winner recieving 3 e-books each (except one & I will explain)ūüôā And here’s the series….

The First Series of Samantha Young’s Tale of Lunarmorte series… It’s actually a trilogy, hahaha so ONE WINNER will get all three books in this series… here’s some pretty pictures to seeūüôā

Moon Spell (book 1)

 

River Cast (book 2)

 

Blood Solstice (book 3)

Now, here’s why I think you should read this series!! The first book starts out with Caia, who is an orphan. She‚Äôs a reserved, quiet lykan used to a life of solitude. You learn some interesting things about her & her life, and the things she’s had to go through. She starts to open up more as she connects with the pack and her Alpha, and as her true heritage reveals itself her character faces many challenges. Over the course of the trilogy Caia transforms from a shy wolf to a force to be reckoned with. (PS thanks Samantha for this AWESOME description… I stole it from you!, but I needed to give you credit)… I really like this character and her journey through all 3 books, to become who she is! & boy does she have an awesome ride!!!ūüôā Now, there is nothing like a little hot man candy (& there is plenty of these in this series)!!!! I will reserve the link after all this good stuff for you to see who Samantha has picked to play her characters (as a fantasy cast trailer)… trust me, I LOVE LOVE who she picked for each one!!! Dammit if she didn’t pick my for real fantasy boyfriend for the main sqeeze ( LOVE YOU! LOVE YOU!… cuz I love Taylor hahahaha)!! I don’t know if I could do this series justice by saying the things I love about it. I can tell you it’s been one of the best ( at least top 3) werewolf series I’ve ever read! WEREWOLVES are my FAVORITE, so when I say top 3, I’ve read almost every werewolf series out there! It’s really that great! It’s considered a young adult, but I got the ladies (who are middle aged with marriage and kids to juggle) reading this series & stopping me every morning to giggle & gasp & gossip about it! It’s freaking awesome, so there is no age limit on this one, and I really wish there was like 10 more books about these characters and their lives! I miss them! But, Samantha is doing something cool, she is doing a spin off series, so I cannot wait to get my hands on this oneūüôā click on the pictures to check out the sound tracks, fantasy casts, and all kinda cool stuff about this seriesūüėČ
So, without further ado… here is the form for you to fill out for this series! READ IT, even if you don’t win it!!! I know I am giving away kindle versions, but you DO NOT have to own a kindle, you can download ( FOR FREE) kindle apps for almost any device to read itūüôā Now fill this out to win….

Now, the next series I am giving away (also internationally) is also by Samantha Young, and I am chosing it, not because it’s a nice sweet happy book, but because it’s exactly the opposite! How do you chose between right and wrong, and what makes you a good or bad person? Samantha describes the first book as this… Eden is a Soul Eater. While that hasn‚Äôt meant much to her in the past, she‚Äôs pretty sure any minute now she‚Äôs going to go all “Carrie” on her eleventh grade class. Noah is an Ankh. As an immortal Warrior, his purpose in life is to hunt down and kill Soul Eaters. Eden is Noah‚Äôs next assignment. Problem is‚Ķ this is an assignment with a difference. Eden‚Äôs not your average, run of the mill, Soul Eater. Noah‚Äôs job? To test Eden for possible redemption. It‚Äôs a risky business. Especially if Noah awakens Eden‚Äôs inner monster. It would be kind of hard for Eden to listen to the angel on her shoulder when the devil on the other is telling her, her new best friend is a lying, scheming, immortal enemy…
….betrayal is such a bitch. So is Eden when you get on her bad side.

So, how do you feel about serial killer parents? cuz Eden has some of those… I am not kidding, and she lives with this guilt everyday! this series is on a whole different level of awesome, but not because the good guys always win, or the bad guys always get what’s coming to them… it’s a little hard, and there are some grey areas in this one! I LOVE EDEN!! No doubt, she is by far, my favorite character, but there are some other really interesting people, and I just LOVE the way Samantha writes! I don’t know if I could ever give this series enough justice either! I mean if you look at the soundtrack for this series (Samantha makes the most awesome soundtracks for her books) it’s freaking awesomeūüôā Just trust me when I say GET YOUR GRIMEY HANDS ON THESE NOW!!! And the coolness about this one, there is an omnibus with a very cool sneak peak into her newest series, which is what I am going to give away! It’s got ALL 3 BOOKS in one!!! And it’s so awesome!!! yes, I bought it, even though I had all 3ūüôā And, now, some pretty picturesūüôā so you can see what you will winūüôā

Now, last but certainly not least… This series is HM Ward’s Demon Kissed Ivy Taylor seriesūüôā
I am gunna let Ms. Ward explain in her own words about this book…. The Valefar boy tricked Ivy Taylor into kissing him, but he took much more than a kiss ‚Äď he stole her soul and left her within inches of death. By surviving, Ivy is drawn into the conflict between the Martis and the Valefar. The war between these two immortal forces has raged for millennia without distraction. Until now. Ivy is an anomaly‚ÄĒshe is the only person who has ever walked away from a demon kiss alive. Her survival gives her unique and deadly abilities. Too powerful to ignore, Ivy is a threat to both armies. These two ancient enemies will stop at nothing to kill the seventeen-year-old. Surviving is nothing new for headstrong Ivy, but her survival has never depended on another person before. This time it does. And if she misplaces her trust, she’s dead. To her horror, she starts falling in love at the worst possible time‚ÄĒwith the enemy. He appears to be protecting her. But she can’t be certain if he is trying to help her, or help himself to her power. For Ivy, trusting the right person is the difference between love and survival, or a deadly demon kiss.

Now, this series fascinated me… first, I couldn’t get my hands on a damn paperback copy, so I finally broke down and bought my first ebook (yep, this was my first e book) and hot damn, if I am not addicted to this series! I love her, and I feel sorry for her, and I wanna hug her, and high five her, and slap her, and cry for her, and laugh at her all at the same time! I know, how can I have so many emotions, but this series has brought out so many different things! I mean, this poor kid has to endure a whole lota crap! & she is still fighting! I am normally not and angels vs demon kid.. I usually just like the demon part hahahaha but this one is so very different and it’s not all about walking the fine line between good & evil, love & hate, it’s about saving the people you love, and hoping to make it out alive tooūüôā and making sure the devil gets a nice swift kick in the…. you knowūüôā so, READ THIS ONE TOO!!! This one, can be read for pretty young teenagers & adults tooūüôā so, go on and get yours!!! Look how pretty they are!
