AimeeKay Review: Blood (The Unfinished Song #6) by Tara Maya

Dindi and Umbral have an uneasy truce, forced to work together to defeat a greater enemy: the Bone Whistler. The Bone Whistler’s scheme to sacrifice humanity and resurrect the Aelfae will culminate during an eclipse on the spring equinox…in three days.

Their fragile alliance may not withstand the terrors they face. Dindi hides as a clown, but even disguised, her dancing draws the eye of the Bone Whistler himself. She will have to defy him alone, for Umbral has his own troubles.

Finnadro, who has hunted Umbral for a year, finally catches up with him… determined to punish Umbral for all his black deeds.

Life and death, spring and autumn, human and faery, are all reeling out of balance, and these three days will determine the fate of all Faearth.
OMG! I have to say I LOVE this series!!! I’ve been drawn in since the first book and have yet to be disappointed. Since this is the 6th book in the series if you haven’t read any of them you might not want to read this one. There will be spoilers, if not for the book, then for the series itself. As for the rest of you there will probably be spoilers for book six following but it can’t be helped and I’ll try to limit them to the bare minimum.

Let me start by saying that the world of Faearth that Tara Maya has created is amazing! With each book it keeps getting better and better! Seriously awesome! Every book has taken the reader to a new place in her world and each one is just as interesting as the last.

Her characters are amazing too! I have my faves, of course, but all of them are amazingly well woven into the story. While they all grow or change in some way they also all stay true to themselves, even when they have a complete life changing event. They don’t just change between books for no reason.

As for the story itself…there are soooo many parts of this book that I have been waiting for FOREVER!!! I won’t go into detail because I promised…but….let’s just say that I was right all along! *happy dance* Sorry there was something I had thought was true all along but the author story had led me to believe it wasn’t, and I’m happy I was right. Also it looks as if Dindi is finally getting within sight of her happy ending. I know that the story will eventually end and that there are quite a few more books left in it so she won’t get it any time soon, but still she is finally getting to show who she truly is.

Ok. I know this is just mainly me raving about a book without telling too much about it, but I can’t go into detail or I will just spill a whole bunch of spoilage all over. All I can say is if you haven’t started this series yet go pick up the first two books. (You have to have them both or it will just be annoying, trust me) I can’t wait for the next book I love seeing how the author has woven all her books together and where she is taking Dindi and the rest of her world.

Early Review: Wicked Lies (Dark Mission #4.5) by Karina Cooper

In this Dark Mission novella, Jonas Stone emerges from the shadows into his own story, and finally allows himself to have the same shot at love he's given his friends.

Jonas Stone has been given his first independent operation: rescue the insurrection leader's imprisoned grandson from the Mission. Getting the job done means more than getting Danny Granger out--it means staying with him while he heals. Staying too close, for way too long. 
Danny is everything Jonas isn't: confident, optimistic, honest--a man to be reckoned with. If only it didn't mean going against everything Jonas has planned. He's kept his secrets for years, hid behind a mask no one could see through...until now. Danny isn't the kind of man Jonas deserves. But he might be exactly the man he needs...
Yep, I did it again... I read out of order. However, it's a novella and sometimes you can do that. It's often used to get readers who have not read a series interested. However, some are inserted right in the middle where you have to have previous knowledge to really "get" the whole scenario. This was a bit of both.

While I had no trouble with the romance within, it was a bit of a head scratcher to get into the world. I didn't get much information, but I did get enough so I wasn't completely lost and it did perk up my interest into what had been going on. So, I do think that was a plus for the author.

The romance was intense. It starts out as a rescue mission where Danny is the victim being tortured and Jonas is the rescuer. Jonas helped Danny keep it together and so he developed a bit of a crush toward Jonas. Jonas was smitten with Danny from the start, but thought that any attraction given from him would be because of the hero complex and would not be true. Also, Jonas was broken. Not just psychologically, but physically as well. The physical really added to his view of himself and what he would accept.

Danny was always looking for "the one". Not always involved romantically, but had the confidence of youth on his side. His biggest worry was pushing it too far, especially if Jonas wasn't gay. I felt that his concern, even while being incredibly and horribly beaten was so sweet. He still could think about Jonas and how he was feeling.

What I enjoyed about this romance was that, although somewhat formula in the plot, it was also sweet. The victim became the one to help heal the one who rescued him. I also liked that although the lust was intense, both realized that the extreme circumstances may have also played a part in their emotions and were willing to slow it down to see if it would last. You don't get a complete ending, but I don't think you could in a novella. I suspect the romance will continue in the background of the other novels in this series.

I give this novella 4 stars. It was so sweet at times I really enjoyed it. It also made me curious about this world and how witches and their opposition play a part. I also liked that the author included a bit about her struggles in a note and made it about the "it gets better" campaign. This novella is set to be published on March 5th.
I received this eARC novella from Edelweiss and Avon and no compensation for my review was given.

Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers #2) by Michelle Rowen


I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...
This is book 2 in the Nightwatchers series, and Dark Kiss is the first book. And while you could read this one without reading the first, I don't suggest it. I do think you get a better feel for what Sam has gone through and also a better feel for all the characters.

I think I enjoyed this book more than I did the first book. Also, in the first book I have to admit I was so much more interested in Kraven than Bishop. However in this book, I think that Bishop outshines Kraven (to those that haven't read the first, no love triangle. Thought I should mention that). I think Bishop interested me in this book more because we get to see that he isn't perfect and that there was some darkness in his past even if he was an angel. Oh and fans of Kraven don't have to worry, I still loved that demon. Still had his snark and even a vulnerable moment or two. Hopefully if there is more to this series, we get a Kraven book. I still really enjoy him. :D

I give this book 4 stars. The twists in the book were predictable, but still entertaining. I enjoyed my time here and I also enjoyed the twist on zombies this world has. A few questions still remain about the grays in particular which amounts to a small plot hole, but nothing that bugged me too much. Hopefully a novella or another novel will take care of that hole and fill in the answers. :)
I received this eARC from Harlequin Teen and NetGalley and no compensation for my review was given.

PS... I still love the first book's cover:
Swoony, right? :D

The Goddess Inheritance (Goddess Test #3) by Aimée Carter

Love or life.Henry or their child.The end of her family or the end of the world.Kate must choose. 
During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal. 
In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead. 
With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.
Even if it costs her eternity.
I have to admit it took me a bit to get into the book. I think it had to do more with time and the fact that I kept forgetting who was who with the god's alternate names. However, my brain slowly worked and things clicked into place and then I was off! This became a book I didn't want to put down because I wanted to know what happens next. :)

There were some parts that bugged me. Some things I cannot discuss or it will give too much away. However, I can say that I enjoyed Henry much more in this one. He was a little less taciturn, but still I wanted him to show more to Kate. However, I was glad of the Henry we did get in this one. I think it was the first time I didn't want to totally kick him in the arse. ;)

However, with Kate not trying to get Henry to open up, we were presented with a Kate that at times really got to me. Yes, she was new and had some esteem problems, but I really wanted her to rip those other gods a new one when they kept blaming her. I mean really? With all the selfishness they do on a daily basis, they were able to point fingers blameless? She was aware of this but still let them get to her. I mean it did make sense as she was still learning and had a whole new set of emotions to deal with, but I still wanted that new rip. :)

In the end I give this book 3 1/2 or 4 stars (yes, I said "or"). There were parts of this book that frustrated me, but I have to also admit, it kept my attention. I was drawn to know what was going on and what the outcome would be. The ending is complete but open just a bit to either have a novella or perhaps a offshoot book come from this (and I do believe their are those novellas out there). I wasn't totally convinced of the romance with Henry and Kate, but not unconvinced either. Still, I got my HEA and it was quite an adventure. I recommend it to those that love a YA PNR adventure.

Audio Review: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff--with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.
Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
In the beginning of this story, it was quite slow. In fact, I had a hard time really getting into the flow of the book. At first, I thought it was the narrators Steve West (reading Sean's chapters) and Fiona Hardingham (reading Puck's chapters). Not because they were bad, but because they had a very smooth voice quality... especially Steve West. I thought maybe it was the cadence of their voices that sort of lulled me. However, the story wasn't just taking me away.


There was a twist. Not a huge one, but it, for some reason, really ramped up my attention. After that, I was able to really see Puck and Sean both struggling with their respective problems and I became entranced. Not only that, it was the beginning of me becoming increasingly tense about the race coming up shortly. A race that started to seem like it would take a year to get here.

Now feeling like it was a year might not sound like a good thing, but it really was. It was the anticipation, the want to hurry up and get it over along side the same feeling of wanting it to last. Not wanting to leave this world too quickly. So, I became increasingly anxious as to what was going to happen. Oh but Maggie Stiefvater doesn't just leave you at that building anticipation. She throws in other anxiety producing incidences that makes you find yourself at the edge of your seat. It also enhances the anxiety already going on.

I should say something about the romance because I really enjoyed it here. There is one and it proceeds gloriously slow. Gloriously? Oh yes... It makes sense with who Puck and Sean have become and are becoming. It cannot be any faster or it would have played false. No insta-love here. And it's a perfect build of emotions. One that takes into account each person's world not made easy by their respective circumstances.

Oh the ending! So many questions leading up to the ending... Will I get my HEA? Will something worse that what is going through my head will happen? Who will die? Will I be able to get my hands through this story and pluck Mutt Malvern out and kick him in the arse? Will "I" survive this ending?

Ah... the end. All I will say is that it was satisfying even though this is one book I would have love to have ended with a epilogue so I know what happened to all the remaining characters years later. No, it's not necessary to the book's ending, I just my want to know since I'm now invested in this world.

I give this book 4 1/2 stars. It has a slow beginning but stick with it, the rewards will pay themselves off ten fold. You may also like the audio. If nothing, you will enjoy the two narrator's British accents. :)

Throwback Thursday: Jeaniene Frost EKOD

Meme hosted by Melissa My World in Words and Pages. It's about books that are already on the shelves and are waiting to be read. Go to her website to join in!

I've been sadly behind on one of my fave series and the offshoot series. So this week my submission is:

Eternal Kiss of Darkness
by Jeaniene Frost
An immortal war has been brewing in the darkness . . . And now one woman has stumbled into the shadows.

Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she's only imagined in her worst nightmares.
At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master vampire who thought he'd seen it all. Then Kira appears, this fearless, beautiful . . . human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life. Yet sending her away is unthinkable.
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
Yes, I know it is a sin to be behind in the Night Huntress world, but with all the review books I am very behind which makes me sad. I will catch up.. one day. Can I be forgiven? *Looks penitent* 

So, what book is making you feel guilty that is still on the shelves waiting to be read?

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

Not a day goes by that the post does not bring me at least one letter from a young person (or sometimes one not so young) who wishes to follow in my footsteps and become a dragon naturalist. Nowadays, of course, the field is quite respectable, with university courses and intellectual societies putting out fat volumes titled Proceedings of some meeting or other. Those interested in respectable things, however, attend my lectures. The ones who write to me invariably want to hear about my adventures: my escape from captivity in the swamps of Mouleen, or my role in the great Battle of Keonga, or (most frequently) my flight to the inhospitable heights of the Mrtyahaima peaks, the only place on earth where the secrets of the ancient world could be unlocked. 
Even the most dedicated of letter-writers could not hope to answer all these queries personally. I have therefore accepted the offer from Messrs. Carrigdon & Rudge to publish a series of memoirs, chronicling the more interesting portions of my life. By and large these shall focus on those expeditions which led to the discovery for which I have become so famous, but there shall also be occasional digressions into matters more entertaining, personal, or even (yes) salacious. One benefit of being an old woman now, and moreover one who has been called a "national treasure," is that there are very few who can tell me what I may and may not write. 
Beyond this point, therefore, lie foetid swamps, society gossip, disfiguring diseases, familial conflicts, hostile foreigners, and a plenitude of mud. You, dear reader, continue on at your own risk. It is not for the faint of heart -- no more so than the study of dragons itself. But such study offers rewards beyond compare: to stand in a dragon's presence, even for the briefest of moments -- even at the risk of one's life -- is a delight that, once experienced, can never be forgotten. If my humble words convey even a fraction of that wonder, I will rest content. 
In this first volume, I will relate to you how my career as a lady adventurer and dragon naturalist began, commencing at the creation of my childhood fascination with all things winged, and for the bulk of its length describing my first foreign expedition, to study the rock-wyrms of Vystrana. Common gossip has made the bare facts well-known, but I warn you, dear reader, that all was not as you have heard. 
Isabella, Lady TrentCasselthwaite, Linshire11 Iyar, 1895
Oh dragons! You know I jumped at the chance to read this especially since I also heard that there were some good illustrations to go with it. However, I did worry that I may find the book dry. My worry was because I've read a few of these alternate reality books like this. Unfortunately they tend to mimic the books you might have gotten if it was real too well and became a dry alternate science course. I'm happy to find that this was not the case with this book. It presents itself like a biography but only concentrates on one part of Isabella's life. So, it turns out as more of an adventure story.

In this we find out why and how Isabella's obsession turns into a profession. It's like sitting down with her as she recollects what happened during that time now that she is an old lady telling her story. This helps you get into the story quite easily and root for her to become what she seeks in scientific study at a time where women's main concern was to catch a husband to better their station and live in society. This was a hard time for women like her.

The last part of the story is a telling of her big first adventure away from home to study dragons. She manipulated her husband into going and than taking her. Although this often doesn't endear me to the heroine, in this case it didn't bother me. That was because of Jacob, her husband. He knew full well what she was trying to do and confronted her with the fact. I have to say that Jacob was my fave character throughout the book even when he did become a bit mulish and tried to be the husband expected of him by controlling her. Mostly because that behavior didn't last and he was in love and just wanted her to be happy.

Isabella, while I did like her, I didn't like her as much as Jacob. While Jacob often thought of others especially his wife, Isabella often seemed to me to be a bit selfish. While I did understand why she would have to push and manipulate at that time to get even a fraction of what she wanted, I would have liked to have seen a bit more thought to Jacob. She did do that more and more as the story progressed and it kept her selfishness in check at times, but I would have just loved to have seen her sacrifice her wants at least as much as he did for her. Despite my feelings on this, it did not distract from the adventure and I really did enjoy the fact that Isabella was the one to figure out most things intellectually.

In the end I give this book 3 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed this alternate reality and wished that dragons really did exist like this. It's a fun book and I do hope that we get more of Isabella's adventures. The way it is written you assume lots of growth from this character in her later years.

The Claimed
by Caridad Piñeiro
Victoria Johnson loves her life. She's her own boss in a quaint beachside town, and has great friends who keep her grounded. If only they knew who she really is: an heiress to an ancient race who possesses astonishing superhuman powers. It's Victoria's duty to restore her clan of Light Hunters to their former glory by choosing the perfect mate. In Christopher Sombrosa, she just may have found him. Strong, smart, and successful, Christopher exudes a powerful energy. Their connection is sensual, irresistible-and forbidden.

A member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher has defied his own father to lead his people away from affliction and violence. Yet he cannot ignore his duty to carry on his ancient bloodline. Stunningly beautiful and brimming with an erotic life force, Victoria is everything Christopher ever hoped for in a mate . . . but as a Light Hunter, she's his mortal enemy. Together, they could unite their warring tribes. But murderous factions on both sides don't want peace-and they'll stop at nothing to keep light and darkness apart forever...
I enjoyed this second book in the Sin Hunter series (my review). And although I did like the first book cover, it just wasn't ToT material. It's quite an interesting world going on here. Oh and the cover is nice and sunny. :D

So what is your ToT this week?

Immortal Ever After (Argeneau #18) by Lynsay Sands

New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands delivers a wickedly fun Argeneau novel featuring a vampire ready to claim his mate and the beauty who resists her fate! 
A kiss doesn’t mean eternity... 
Valerie Moyer doesn’t believe in vampires—until she is kidnapped by a fanged psychopath! After escaping her bloodthirsty captor, she’s through with creatures of the night. Until she finds herself under the protection of the darkly handsome Anders. Not only is she expected to accept that Anders is immortal, but also that she is the woman destined to be his life mate! 
...Or does it? 
Anders felt a connection to Valerie from the moment he cradled her bruised body in his arms. But before he claims her, he must destroy the vampire who almost stole her from him forever. His job would be easier if Valerie didn’t fight him every step of the way. Still, Anders loves a challenge, and the green-eyed beauty is worth fighting for!
Guess what? Rejoice! This book is #18 in the series and I haven't read any of the 17 prior. In PNR and especially in long running series like this, I know I can often pick up a book and not be lost at all. This was the case with this book. However, I have to say this will not be my last book in this series and I do want to go back to #1 and read about what romances I did miss.

I do have to say that although that most of the book wasn't new, it was still fun. What was a bit different was Valerie. Often the girl is in need of rescuing and is a bit on the weak side in these types of books. However, Valerie is someone who does not wait for rescue and does what she can to save her self and others. Not only did I like that she was strong in personality, she was smart and also thought of others. When she was kidnapped with other women to be used as cattle, she didn't just want to save herself, she wanted to save the others as well. Also, I have to give major props to her as she had a dog she constantly worried about. She trained the dog well and she really cared about animals. She was even a veterinarian. Yep, you can safely say I really liked Valerie.

Anders was a good compliment to her. Brooding and taciturn he was one who was not looking for a life mate. When the signals happen to suggest he found his life mate, he was reluctant, but also willing to figure if Valerie is truly the one for him. I liked this about him. It was insta-lust, but not insta-love. He anticipated the lust as finding a life mate has that affect and he was well aware of it. He also tried to make it so Valerie was also not overwhelmed but made her decision on if they were to be together on her time and in her way. I also loved it when he finally figured out he loved her and that was a sweet surprise.

I give this book 4 stars. I had fun with this book. It's a book you want when you want to read about a little hot smex with a strong woman and a HEA. I recommend this one and I also say you don't have to read any of the others to really get into this world. You also don't have long to wait, it will be published on the 26th.

Devil May Care (Speak of the Devil #2) by Patricia Eimer

Weddings are hell… 
After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow. 
Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family. 
Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil's spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she's at it.
It's been quite awhile since I read the first book in this series. The first book, Luck of the Devil (my review linked), was published in Aug, 2011. So, although it was quite a while from the first book, it took me a minute to catch up to the characters... but not really that long at all. I usually remember odd and fun characters and it came back to me rather quickly. Like the first book, this one was full of fun, snark, and a bit of adventure. I do recommend you start with that first book to get a feel for their characters, but it's not absolutely necessary. Yes, you heard it... I'm recommending you read it in order... ;)

I loved the way the author handles these characters. Their choices may not be dictated by their nature. Evil may be done by an angale, the good and innocent by one of the devil's minions. They might agree that their very nature is good or evil by the group they are born into, but still their behavior comes off as quite human only enhanced by who is in their family. For Faith, the devil is her father, while her uncle is god. Don't forget her meddling cousin, Jesus... or J. :) The writing makes this all sweet and I really enjoyed how the author writes the secondary characters as well. However, I have one complaint....

The ending! Eep! That ending. All I have to say is that I better not have to wait so long for the 3rd book. ;) It's not a cliffie, but you will be wanting to know what happens while kicking a certain demon's butt. I'm also hoping we will get more with Mal, Faith's bodyguard whom I have gotten more curious about since we get a glimpse into his past.

I give this book 4 stars. I recommend it to those that like fun in their PNR. I can see fans of Molly Harper's humor also enjoy this series. This book will be published on the 26th.
I received this book from Entangled publishing and no compensation for my review was given.

Author Guest Post/ Blog Tour: Patricia Eimer

Why I’m In Love With British Humor 

When I was given the chance to write this blog, I thought oh man what do I think is funny? Oh no, I’ve got to go find something that’s funny and smart. Like 30 Rock. Or Parks and Recreation. Ooh, ooh, Lena Dunham won a Golden Globe for some television show that everyone says is smart, funny and that I should just love because well apparently I used to be this generation. So I tried to write a smart, sassy, Tina Fey-esque blog post about funny smart television and I very quickly realized something. I don’t watch any of these shows and I probably can’t bluff you that I do.

Please don’t judge me. I’m sure I would love them if I watched them but the thing is, I don’t watch a lot of television and if you don’t catch my interest from about five minutes into your very first episode I probably won’t tune back in. So I never got into Parks and Recreation or 30 Rock and as for Girls? I don’t watch enough television to make it worth paying for HBO. Even if Girls is fabulous which I keep being told it is.

Anyway, what do I find humorous? I’m proud to say that I’m a zany, tongue in cheek comedy fan. If I’m going to sit down and actually watch television or a movie (which is rare now that I’ve got kids since it seems like I’m always driving them somewhere) then I want it to be a goofball comedy. Rude is not necessary but usually appreciated as well. Same thing for science fiction comedy.

As much as I should like smart, sophisticated comedy I find that time and again I find myself debating whether or not I really should watch Bridesmaids again. Or making sure that my DVR won’t accidentally eat an entire season of Dr. Who. Or clicking on old episodes of Torchwood (the BBC version not that travesty from Starz) to giggle as Jack tries to shag every alien in sight. Twice. Sometimes I even dig out my old episodes of Firefly and Eureka.

Unfortunately for me, my girlfriends have caught onto my comedy love and over Christmas my very best girlfriend, found me a rather endearing radio comedy that I could listen to while I work. Unfortunately, John Finnemore’s Cabin Pressure—a radio comedy about a “small charter airline for whom no job is too small but many jobs are too difficult”—is so funny that usually I spend almost the entire time laughing my head off and very little time actually working when it’s on.

So whether it’s Rebel Wilson causing mischief during a wedding or Matt Smith announcing that “there are dinosaurs—on a SPACESHIP”, or the silver tongued Roger Allam helping a confused Benedict Cumberbatch figure out how many otters you can fit in an airplane—if you want to completely distract me and make me laugh you only have to do one thing. BE COMPLETELY ABSURD. The weirder you are, the more likely it is that I’ll laugh.

About the Author:
I'm a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard that was a perfect spot for reading on summer days. Mixed with too much imagination it made me a bratty child but fated me to become a storyteller. After a stint of “thinking practically” in my twenties I earned degrees in Business and Economics and worked for a software firm in southwestern Germany but my passion has always been a good book. I currently lives in Pittsburgh with my two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give me more time to write. When I'm not writing I can be found fencing and arguing with my dogs about plot points. Most days the Beagle wins but the Dalmatian is in close second. I'm in a distant third.

Devil May Care (Speak of the Devil #2)
Weddings are hell… 
After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt—the youngest Crown Princess of Hell—wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt’s past walks through Faith’s apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that’s keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow. 
Which is about when Matt’s zealous mother declares war on Faith’s family. 
Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she’s got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil's spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she's at it.

Author Blog Post: Marie Brennan and Dragon Art

Words cannot express how delighted I was when Paul Stevens, my editor at Tor, told me that he had gotten Todd Lockwood to do the cover and interior art for A Natural History of Dragons.

 Todd’s an amazing artist, but that isn’t even the reason. (At least, it isn’t all of the reason.) Having him do the art, both inside and out, brings this book full circle. You see, his work was part of the inspiration for it in the first place.

 It comes, of all places, from a role-playing game book. The third edition D&D supplement Draconomicon is a nifty piece of work, full of tasty information about dragons, but it also contains images that are not like the usual art found in those books. They’re line drawings of dragons: full-body sketches, detail shots of heads or claws, skeletal and muscular studies, and more. In other words, the sort of thing a natural historian would produce, if they happened to be studying dragons.

 That, in combination with the Dragonology series (or more specifically, the Dragonology calendar), was the jumping-off point for Isabella and her story. So when it was decided that the book would have interior sketches -- examples of Isabella’s own artwork, from her field notes -- I immediately thought of Draconomicon, and went to see who was responsible for the images that had inspired me to write about her in the first place.

 I was not at all surprised to see that it was Todd Lockwood. He’s one of the powerhouses of fantasy art, especially for Dungeons & Dragons, the Forgotten Realms, and so on. I was, however, a bit sad. If it had been someone else, I might have stood a chance; it being Todd Lockwood, the odds of me getting him on board seemed vanishingly small.

 So it seemed nothing short of a miracle when I heard that it was really going to happen. And then I saw the cover, which is an utterly perfect melding of my idea and my editor’s, as well as being eye-catching and a perfect advertisement for what the book is about. (I bought the first of the limited edition of prints, and once it’s framed it will be going up on my wall.) Then I started getting the interior art (and I’m thinking of buying one or more of those images, too). It is, in short, everything I visualized when I started writing this series, now made into reality.

 And it makes the world of the story so much more solid. Not just by showing readers what my words describe, but by mimicking the Victorian style of publishing, where such figures were common. I’m always thrilled to get the first copies of one of my books, but this one is especially exciting, because it’s such a beautiful object.

Excerpt from the book:

A Natural History of Dragons
You, dear reader, continue at your own risk. It is not for the faint of heart—no more so than the study of dragons itself. But such study offers rewards beyond compare: to stand in a dragon’s presence, even for the briefest of moments—even at the risk of one’s life—is a delight that, once experienced, can never be forgotten. . . .

All the world, from Scirland to the farthest reaches of Eriga, know Isabella, Lady Trent, to be the world’s preeminent dragon naturalist. She is the remarkable woman who brought the study of dragons out of the misty shadows of myth and misunderstanding into the clear light of modern science. But before she became the illustrious figure we know today, there was a bookish young woman whose passion for learning, natural history, and, yes, dragons defied the stifling conventions of her day. 
Here at last, in her own words, is the true story of a pioneering spirit who risked her reputation, her prospects, and her fragile flesh and bone to satisfy her scientific curiosity; of how she sought true love and happiness despite her lamentable eccentricities; and of her thrilling expedition to the perilous mountains of Vystrana, where she made the first of many historic discoveries that would change the world forever.

Tell Me Something Tuesday: Comfort Foods

Tell Me Something Tuesday, a meme started by CambriaHebert, but now hosted here on Rainy Day Ramblings. It is a chance to get to know your fellow bloggers by sharing fun stuff, discussions and more. Grab the question and post your answer on your blog and link up! Have fun!

What are your favorite Comfort Foods?

From Mike's Stinkin' Good Chile

I'll go with the one I've mentioned on the blog more than once. I have made this several times and it's the only thing I really cook (nope, I'm not a cook at all). You get it here in CO and NM. All other sauce is just imitation. 
From Mike's Stinkin' Good Chile

You can eat it as a stew with a side of tortilla, you can use it as a sauce (most often used this way) on your foods such as burritos, tamales, or anything you think needs a sauce. It's a staple here really. Oh and I put Mike's Stinking Green Chile here because you can get this stuff and it's the only store bought chile I've even liked. The canned stuff is horror. HORROR! Won't even mention that thing... *shudder* that comes in a can.


Mike Schelereth is a former Bronco football player who fell in love with the stuff and is now distributing it. I think it is a good way for those that have never had it to try it before making it. I suggest the medium pork Chile. I honestly haven't tried anything else. 

Hm... well I didn't mean to make it sound like a commercial for Mike's but it was better than me trying to figure out what I put in the chile. Only thing I don't use a recipe for.

Here is one recipe. It's different than mine, but close. If you don't like it too hot, you can skip the jalapeños and add dried red chiles to taste (I do that).

So, what is your comfort food?

The Water Witch (Fairwick Chronicles #2) by Juliet Dark

After casting out a dark spirit, Callie McFay, a professor of gothic literature, has at last restored a semblance of calm to her rambling Victorian house. But in the nearby thicket of the Honeysuckle Forest, and in the currents of the rushing Undine River, more trouble is stirring... 
The enchanted town of Fairwick’s dazzling mix of mythical creatures has come under siege from the Grove: a sinister group of witches determined to banish the fey back to their ancestral land. With factions turning on one another, all are cruelly forced to take sides. Callie’s grandmother, a prominent Grove member, demands her granddaughter’s compliance, but half-witch/half-fey Callie can hardly betray her friends and colleagues at the college.

To stave off disaster, Callie enlists Duncan Laird, an alluring seductive academic who cultivates her vast magical potential, but to what end? Deeply conflicted, Callie struggles to save her beloved Fairwick, dangerously pushing her extraordinary powers to the limit—risking all, even the needs of her own passionate heart.
Those that have worried about me, wanting to start a series from the beginning... rejoice! Guess what? I haven't read the first book in this series. Yep, I jumped into the second book. :D Luckily for me, I didn't need to read the first book to understand what was going on. I did get a sense that I had missed some interesting things that had happened in the last book, but connecting to the characters in this story wasn't hard at all.

Now, even though I didn't have a hard time connecting to Callie, I did feel that if I had started the series from the beginning, I would have had a better feel for Liam. Even so, this was more about Callie so my lack of preparation for this book did not make me suffer. And as much as I did like Callie, I have to say she quite often frustrated me with her seemingly inability to think things through. She blundered through quite a bit of messed up magic and it still didn't seem to teach her to stop and think before plodding through. Still, she did care so much for her friends that it helped balance out all the frustrating parts.

This story, despite some of the plot holes, was fun. Not all my questions were answered and some of the twists were a bit predictable. However, it had some quite steamy smexy scenes and a few interesting secondary characters. I would like to know more about this world and I may have to pick up that first book to see if it fills in some of the holes. I also have to warn those, like me, who hate cliffies... yep there is one here but I admit (grudgingly) that it has made me want that next book to see what happens to these characters next.

I give this book 3 stars. It's a fun PNR book that you don't need to read the first book to get into the world. However, you might want to start with book 1 to get a solid feel of Callie and Liam.

Farseed (Seed #2) by Pamela Sargent

Centuries ago, the people of Earth sent Ship into space. Deep within its core, it carried the seed of humankind… 
More than twenty years have passed since Ship left its children on an uninhabited, earthlike planet. Zoheret and her companions have started settlements and had children of their own. But soon after their arrival, Zoheret’s old nemesis, Ho, struck out on his own. 
When Ho’s daughter, fifteen-year-old Nuy, spies three strangers headed toward their home, the hostility between the two groups of old shipmates begins anew. Can the divided settlers face the challenges of adapting to their new environment in spite of their conflicts?
This is the second in the Seed Trilogy. The first is Earthseed. We pick up this installment several years later and are following the second generation since they were "seeded" on the new planet, Home. We still have the characters from the second book. The main character, Zoheret, from the last book still plays a major part, but plays a secondary character to her daughter, Leila. And although I thought the secondary characters from the last book was too much undefined, that was not the case in this book.

I did have problems with the flow of this book. We begin with a prologue with a snippet of what happened last in "ship's" mind. The ship is still out there thinking of the kids it left behind. Next we are suddenly with a trio who are trying to find out what happened to the fringe group that separated from them. The reason this was a bit jarring is because you didn't realize that so much time had transpired so quickly from the first book. This isn't a big problem, but I found myself, with each section, trying to figure out what period in time this was happening. It only really jumped a little in time so we knew what happened while other things went on. Perhaps it was just me that had this particular problem, but the sections didn't quite flow to one another until the end.

I give this book 3 stars. It still has plenty of adventure and I have to say that I enjoyed the character of Nuy (the species they may transform into) quite interesting. We only get hints of where this might take us, but I'm curious to see what will happen in their future. The first book, Earthseed is slated by paramount to become a movie.
I received this book from torteen and no compensation for my review was given.

Throwback Thursday

Meme hosted by Melissa My World in Words and Pages. It's about books that are already on the shelves and are waiting to be read. Go to her website to join in!

Well, since I was in a Gail Carriger mood...

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1)
First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette. 
Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire - and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate. 
With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

Yep, have this one on the tbr, but haven't gotten to it yet. Am I the only one who hasn't read it yet? :)

So, what is the book waiting on you that makes you feel like you are the last person to have read it? ;)

Etiquette and Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger

It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school. 
Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. 
But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right--but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.
Okay, confession time. I have the first book in Carriger's Parasol Protectorate adult series and haven't actually gotten to read it yet. :) I had an opportunity to read her YA mostly out of curiosity. What was all the fuss about? I knew it was the same world (25 yrs prior to the other series) so I thought this would be a good place to start.

I was not disappointed. The writing, the whole tongue-in-cheek way of thinking and talking really had me smiling. It was fun. And I just really enjoy a book that is all about the fun. I really enjoyed the main character, Sophronia (although I'd love to hear it pronounced... not in my head... LOL). She was quite juvenile before going to the school, but in some ways reminded me of Anne Shirley (Green Gables). Someone who's curiosity is more than her common sense. In a time where women were seen as property, I always enjoy this type of rebellion. :)

Sophronia grows up fast and is put in a place that is quite confusing at first. In fact, I still don't know exactly what the school's end game really is, but oddly enough that never bothered me. Her time there has her realize her potential and Sophronia shines.  Her growth is exponential and while seeming almost 10 years old in maturity at first, she is quite grown up in just a few chapters. It's like a light went on within and she really shined at the school.

There is intrigue and adventure. Loved the secondary characters especially Soap. No real romance to speak of, but hints that it may come at a later time. I understand that this is the first in 4 books and I can't wait to start on the next. Oh and it has me wanting to dive into the other series even quicker.

I give this book 4 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed my time here and I recommend it to those that enjoy fun YA, inquisitive girls, or just want to get their feet wet in steampunk. I don't think you'd be disappointed.
I received this book from NetGalley and Little, Brown and no compensation for my review was given.

AimeeKay Review: Moonsongs #1, #2 by E.J. Wesley

Blood Fugue (Moonsongs #1)

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried.

Life has pummeled her heart into one big, lonely callus. She has no siblings, both parents were dead by sixteen, and her last grandparent—and caretaker—was in the ground before she turned twenty-one. She’s the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thinks…
Suddenly, instead of burying it with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.

Okay have to say I LOVED both stories!! Can’t wait to see what happens to Jenny and Marshal in the next Moonsong book!

Blood Fugue: Moonsongs Book 1 is short and its fast pacing made it go by even quicker. Loved the story, even though it was in first person. It was done well and I really wanted to see where the story was going. I found Jenny interesting and Marshal amusing. The only real issue I have is that I wish the story hadn’t ended so soon! However since I had book 2 readily available that was only a temporary annoyance.

Witch's Nocturne (Moonsongs #2)
After receiving an ancient tribal journal from her grandfather, Jenny is sent on a mission of discovery in an attempt to unravel clues to her family's monster hunting past. The journey becomes more than academic when she is asked to confront a coven of dangerous witches who plan to cast an insidious spell on the plains of West Texas.

Witch's Nocturne is the second of the Moonsongs Books, a series of paranormal-horror-action novelettes by author E.J. Wesley. These stories contain language and content better suited for mature readers.

Witch’s Nocturne: Moonsongs Book 2 is just as fast paced but seemed a tad longer, although not as long as I would have liked. I really enjoy the authors writing and I want to read more about Jenny and Marshal. The shortness of the books reminds me of t.v. episodes; short, sweet, resolved in under an hour. But I’m talking good, interesting t.v.. The kind that draws you in and leaves you eagerly awaiting next weeks episode.

The characters are interesting and have tons of potential. There isn’t a love interest, but I found that a refreshing change from other novels that feel the need to cram insta-love down the readers throat. Marshal and Jenny are friends and you can see it in their interactions.

While the stories are short they don’t lack in substance and I hope the next book will be out soon, maybe even a full length novel???(hint! hint!) Of course both books were good even though they were short so maybe the formula shouldn’t be messed with? Don’t care as long as there is more of Jenny and Marshal in the works I’m good.

If I have to say anything that I don’t like about the books it is more superficial than anything. Personally I don’t like the covers. Not my style. *shrug* I’m only mentioning it because I know a lot of readers who base their choices on covers and blurbs. Even if a book has a great blurb they still might not pick it up if they don’t like the cover. If you are like me and the front just doesn’t do it for you don’t judge this book by its cover, you will be missing out!

Honestly you could read book 2 without reading book 1. There is enough back story fill in to not leave the reader completely lost. (But because I enjoyed book 1 so much I don’t recommend it)

Definitely pick up this quick, cool new series. You won’t regret it!

Author Blog Post: E.J. Wesley

“Why is it that the Apaches wait to die -- That they carry their lives on their fingernails? They roam over the hills and plains and want the heavens to fall on them. The Apaches were once a great nation; they are now but few, and because of this they want to die and so carry their lives on their fingernails.” ~ Cochise, Chiricahua Apache Chief

One question I’m frequently asked about the Moonsongs stories is, “Why the Native American twist?” Jenny, the Moonsongs heroine, is descended from a fictitious Apache tribe called the Navezgane. That connection serves as the basis for her adventures, as she learns (in Blood Fugue, Moonsongs Book 1) she has become the latest in a long line of tribal “monster hunters.”

When I came up with the concept for the stories, the first thing I decided on was the West Texas setting. When you travel to the more rural areas of Texas, you can’t ignore a sense that time has somehow leapt over some of the little towns you encounter. On the surface, the dusty streets, waving strangers, and vast stretches of undeveloped land seem to indicate that the rules of progress and change do not apply. 

I believe a large part of that feeling of timelessness is due to the Native cultures that once solely inhabited the land. Though they are now largely lumped into somewhat minimalizing terms like “heritage” and “history”, the spirit of those First People is still very much alive in the untouched areas. 

Standing in a field of golden wild grass as it dances around your knees, you can almost hear the whispering footsteps of the buffalo stalking hunters around you. As the sun rises behind a distant mesa, it’s easy to imagine the sight of a lone warrior or scout on horseback, scaling slowly to the top for an unfettered view of the sprawling prairie below.

Now take all of that deep connection to the very roots of humanity in the Western Hemisphere, the innate spirituality of the land, and juxtapose it with a modern twenty-two year old girl, who loves video games, has a purple mohawk, and would generally like to give the world a giant middle-finger. That’s Jenny, and that’s the basic framework for the Moonsongs stories.

Yes, there are monsters, big pickup trucks (hey, it’s Texas!), sinister witches, and tons of smartass interactions via Jenny and her best friend, Marshal. But Moonsongs is really about this jaded young woman, who hasn’t felt very connected to anything, discovering the power of having a purpose in life. Even if it is a very dangerous and scary-as-hell purpose.

I believe Jenny’s journey, her struggle for identity, is one many people in this age of Internet relativity can relate to.

~ E.J. Wesley ~
Blood Fugue (Moonsongs #1)
“Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted.”

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn’t fit in. Not that she has ever tried.
Life has pummeled her heart into one big, lonely callus. She has no siblings, both parents were dead by sixteen, and her last grandparent—and caretaker—was in the ground before she turned twenty-one. She’s the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thinks… 
“We found my ‘grandfather’ sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I’d seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them.” 
Suddenly, instead of burying it with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather’s life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.
