Blogger Guest Post with Giveaway!

 I'd like to welcome Melissa (no, not me...) of My World in Words and Pages to da blog! She wanted to share a bit about an author she found and the series that captivated her. Melissa and the author is also giving away 3 sets of ebooks! Too cool, right? Well... Melissa... take it away...
~~~~~~~~~
Sevy is a thief living the harsh life in a thief’s world. This is a fantasy series of two books in, Thief and Shades of War, while the third will be released soon, Masquerade. Sarah-Jane Lehoux is daring in her writing style, and I’ve enjoyed it. She takes steps in the first book that many authors may not, and I liked seeing that. Then in the second book we visit a part of the world where we learn more of the Dark Elves and ghosts of different forms make an appearance to Sevy.

Sevy is in no way the perfect “person” as a character, she is flawed and that is what catches my eye with her. She has a dark past that will surface in Shades of War. This is a fantasy read with a dark side, and an adventure to take you on.

Sarah-Jane Lehoux surprised me at the end of Thief with Sevy, and then in Shades of War showed me more of her shocking history and the skeletons in the back of Sevy’s mind.
I have reviews up for both Thief: http://melissa-melsworld.blogspot.com/2011/06/book-review-thief.html and Shades of War: http://melissa-melsworld.blogspot.com/2012/09/book-review-shades-of-war.html Sarah-Jane Lehoux has brought a rainbow of emotions through me with these reads; surprise, tears, and worry.

Thief
In the crumbling city of Eloria, there is one indisputable fact: everyone has a price. Protestations of morality and better judgment have little meaning when confronted with the chance to obtain the unobtainable. The only question remaining is just how much a person is willing to sacrifice in order to win their heart’s desire. 
Sevy has always been a quick study in the wicked ways of Eloria. She has no qualms about taking what she wants, and when the love of her life is mysteriously murdered, Sevy will stop at nothing to get him back. Elvish black magic, necromancy and demonic pacts are of little consequence if it means she can once again have her beloved at her side. But is she willing to murder her only friend to get the job done?
Shades of War
Sometimes the past can't be forgotten. Sometimes the truth refuses to be buried. And sometimes the dead won't stay dead.It began as a simple request: Journey to the Northern Jungles and bring a wayward son back to the safety of his farm and family before the racial tension that is building between humans and dark elves erupts into civil war. But life is never simple for Sevy, and she soon finds herself entangled in a bloody battle of good versus evil, love versus hate.Old friends and enemies reunite, familial bonds are broken, and loyalty is tested. And in the midst of the steamy, sultry jungles, the ghosts of a serial killer's victims come out to play. Sevy, as petulant and irascible as ever, must overcome her personal demons in order to expose a madman and bring peace back to the kingdom. But just how much of her sanity must she sacrifice to help her friends? And how can she save anyone when she can't even save her own soul?

  3. Flawed characters in dark worlds are my favorite! Fantasy isn't usually my genre of choice, but I'm thinking this is too good of a series to pass up so it's going on my obscenely long TBR list. Win:)

  6. I love this idea of having a guest on to talk about a favorite series (or book, or author...) I think we tend to listen more closely to another blogger who's promoting books rather than the author who we know is just doing their job and obviously is biased.
    Anyway, I don't know how I haven't heard of these books! They sound absolutely fantastic! And the covers are pretty great too. :)

  9. I love finding out about new books to try, I can't wait to read these. Thank you for the giveaway!

    I would love to be creative, but I had to give an argument today about why a made up country's citizens deserve to be treated as refugees, not migrants (I joined an international moot court team) - to say the least my brain is dead.
