I am just someone that likes to read. A LOT. I am in no way a professional reviewer or blogger. I don't get paid for anything. I just enjoy reading for indie authors. And traditionally published authors too.
Necromancy isn’t pretty and Vampires aren’t exactly dead.
USA Today’s Best-Selling Author Cyndi Faria, introduces Vampire by Blood, book one of her new Faeted Vampire series…
When a deceased witch informs Tricia McIntyre she’s a fae princess who’s being hunted by an ancient vampire, she turns to her best friend Sergeant Riley Sweetwater. Problem is, he’s buried in the town cemetery, and she hates him for dying on her. Until she uncovers his secret.
Tricia and Riley were never meant to cross paths after he went dark. Especially since he’s experiencing some kind of immortal transition of his own. But they do, and she’s hunting the same vamp responsible for killing his squad.
Forced together, Tricia’s trying not to kill Riley with her uncontrolled Fae powers, while he’s struggling not to drink her dry. As they must battle their love-hate-lust relationship, they search for the one who holds the secrets to saving humankind before a dark supernatural destroys them all.
She’d appear more threatening if she wasn’t wearing picnic attire. But when she raises her hand, I freeze, quickly deciding she’d be deadly wearing nothing at all. Her beauty—what I’ve glimpsed of it—is as lethal as any weapon. I shouldn’t notice her, but my heart bangs, demanding me to give her a hard glance, as the image of Tricia forms. I force my legs to stiffen and bite back the shudder of grief-laden desire that races through me. I’m a soldier to the core. I’ve taken an oath to protect my country from otherworldly creatures. But her magic calls to me. Stand your ground, I order myself. Fae are known to mimic their surroundings. This fae is no different. Perhaps, she knows who I am and has disguised herself as Tricia. “I asked you a question.” Her light blazes and sparks snap around the aura. So why am I hesitating? I should fire a warning shot. Except, my curiosity worms its way to my index finger, and I ease off the trigger. She could be the last of her immortal kind here on earth, this princess everyone is searching for, and a prize my enemies might trade for information leading me to my missing squad. It’s another way for me to earn General Kane’s respect, so he’ll continue to feed me leads regarding my men. I scope out the cobwebbed room, sheet-covered furniture, and know without a doubt the owner’s long absent. “The woman who lived here is gone. But how much could your grandmother have mattered to you if you’re learning about her absence from a stranger.” A second blast explodes from her hand. Light blisters across my cheek, and suddenly there’s a gaping hole in the wall to my right. The room fills with choking, chalky dust, and I throw my free arm over my mouth and nose in time to see her stagger back and check out her own damn hand. Next, she’s talking to someone at her side, only there’s no one there that I can see. Is she mad or does she have power beyond my understanding? Probably a bit of both, I decide. “Bullets have no power over me,” she blurts, again checking the space beside her. “Unless you want another, you need to leave now, or start talking fast.” I pull my brows tight, and every muscle in my hand readies to engage, then I see the red streak leaking down her arm—weakness in her I can use to get myself out of this fix. “It’s your word against mine. How do I know you’re not trespassing?” Again she pauses, as if listening to the open forest behind her. “This is my family’s property. I’ve alerted the police. They’ll be here any minute.” “Who’s with you? State your names. Do it now!” I take aim. “You’re the one who better spill the beans or you’ll end up in worse shape than that wall,” she threatens. Everything in me is telling me I’m in deep shit. That I should take her out. Except, hiding in the sassy timber of her voice is a thread of something…shaking insecurity…and sweet familiarity. I peer closer, skirting around the crumbled sheetrock that crackles underfoot, as if her very presence is a siren calling the part of me I’ve buried to wake. From what I’ve read, fae cheat, steal, and lie. This creature is no different. “Cell service is dead out here. Lower your hand so we can talk,” I bargain, fearing for my life and the loss the world would have if I’m forced to kill the rare creature. She cocks her curvy hip. “There’s a bigger liar in this room than me. So tell me how you’re here, alive, when you’re supposed to be dead, Sergeant Riley Sweetwater?”

TORN: A BWWM WOLF SHIFTER ROMANCE BY BROOKLYN KNIGHT
ABOUT THE BOOK
I did not tell her the truth about what I really am…
The circumstances surrounding our introduction are unimportant. The only thing that matters is that Sasha Wilcox is my mate and she belongs to me. A night of unbridled passion sealed the deal, but before I could tell her the truth, she was gone. Days have turned into weeks and there is no way I can be without her. I must find her and bring her back to me. No one will stand in my way, especially not the one man who thinks he can steal her from me, Stefan Miller.
I want him so badly, and I have no idea why...
The last thing I should be doing is thinking about Remi Moretti: the green-eyed Italian man who kidnapped me and held me hostage for three days in Tuscany. I want to say that I feared for my life while under his guard, but that would be a lie. The truth is, in a moment of… weakness, I gave my body to him. He set it on fire, but I escaped, and now I need to move on with my life with Stefan, a great guy, who will make a great boyfriend. But why do I crave Remi’s touch? Why do I smell his intoxicating essence every time I breathe? And why do I sense his presence, even though he’s in Italy, and I’m in Miami?

Sno was not alone when she was born with the mark of the moon goddess; the Faye’s Goddess. There was another who bore the same mark; another who would wield the goddesses’ magic.
However, a prophecy split the Faye people. It read that one would destroy their way of life and the other would pull them from the ashes.
The prince was one of those who bore Ayana's mark and though the Queen was easily able to convince her people that their future leader would save their kingdom, she knew it wasn't the truth. She was willing to do whatever it took to save him from his true fate. Would her thirst for power get in the way?

David J Cooper author of the Penny Lane Paranormal Investigator - Ouija Board Mystery
I found a new to me author recently and was delighted when he wanted an interview with my book blog! I love getting to know new authors! I read The first book in the Penny Lane Paranormal Investigator series and enjoyed it. Here is a little about this author and the Penny Lane series.After you read this, go check out Penny Lane Paranormal Investigator!
I recently read your book titled Penny Lane Paranormal Investigator about a group of teens that use a Ouija board to contract their deceased friend and unknowingly draw out an evil spirit.
I read that you had your own paranormal experience that inspired you to write this story. Can you tell us about that experience?
Yes. I was living in Brixham, Devon in a 16th century building that had been converted into apartments. One morning I woke up and the apparition of what looked like a female dressed all in black floated out of my closet and vanished through a wall on the opposite side of the room. The landlord later told me that legend had it that the place was haunted by a female servant. This story has been included in the book.
How many books do you expect to write about Penny Lane?
There will be six books in the series. The Ouija Board Mystery, The House of Dolls, The Devil's Coins, The Mirror, The Key, and the final one Aftermath. They are all connected.
If you weren't a writer, what would you be doing?
Probably a paranormal investigator!!
What is your favorite genre to read?
I like to read about the paranormal, true crime, fantasy, suspense.
What are you reading now?
A book by Arthur Weismann called Evolution.
If someone is brand new to your books, which one should they read first?
If they like the paranormal then they need to read The Ouija Board MYstery first. If they are into true crime I highly recommend my book The Devil Knows about the perverse relationship between Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, the Moors murderers of 1960's Britain. It's a very disturbing book.
What ideas might inspire your future writings?
Once I've finished the Penny Lane series, I will be writing a book about the Cannock Chase murders as I lived in the area at the time of the murders and personally knew the killers second wife. However, I will continue with other paranormal themed books as I have lots of ideas about that genre.
Are any of your characters based on people from your life?
Yes. Most of the characters in the Penny Lane series are based on real people from my life.
What is the hardest scene you have had to write?
The hardest scene I've had to write at the moment is a scene in the fifth book in the series where Penny discovers the truth about the local priest.
If you could give your younger self any piece of advice, what would it be?
Start writing books!!

ABOUT THE BOOK: Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series! Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity—which is exactly the amount of time it takes to make a person stark, raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer. She’s missed her daughter. She’s missed Reyes. She’s missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. Now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine for a broken heart? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
The concept for First Grave came about while Darynda was working as a sign language interpreter in her hometown. She stole many of the names from students at the schools where she worked, including Reyes, Garrett, and Amber. As far as Darynda knows, they have all forgiven her for her thievery.
Second Grave on the Left
Uncle Bob is a combination of two people: Darynda’s oldest brother, Luther, and the principal at the high school where she worked for several years.
Third Grave Dead Ahead
This was originally titled Third Grave Straight Ahead, but Darynda’s web designer, Liz Bemis, asked her to change the name to Dead Ahead. Firstly, it fit the content better, and secondly, Liz got tired of spelling the word Straight wrong while updating the website. Dead is much easier to type.
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet
Quentin Rutherford makes his first appearance in this book. While his first name was stolen from Darynda’s little brother and his last name stolen from yet another Jr. High student, Quentin is physically sculpted from her oldest son, Jerrdan, a bona fide blond-haired, blue-eyed devil with a sparkling smile that melts even the staunchest of hearts. And, like Quentin Rutherford, he was born Deaf. Not that he let it stop him for a second.
Fifth Grave Past the Light
This book was fun to write! Darynda was trying to come up with something truly creepy to throw into the book, and she figured what would be creepier than having an apartment full of departed women crawling up the walls, skittering across the ceiling, and huddling in the corners? Also, it is one of the hotter books, so that was fun, too. Because, you know, Reyes.
Sixth Grave on the Edge
Darynda really wanted to open this one on a humorous note. She wanted to have Charley on a stakeout with a departed elderly man, who also happens to be naked, riding shotgun. Which begs the question: Are we really stuck in (or out of) whatever we are wearing when we die for all eternity? ‘Cause that would suck.
Seventh Grave and No Body
Osh’ekiel was originally supposed to be in one book only. And he was supposed to be a very bad guy. But Darynda fell in love with him while writing the book and decided to redeem him and give him a bigger role. Just how big his role would become didn’t come to Darynda until plotting Eighth Grave. He has been one of her favorite characters since she wrote that first scene with him.
Eighth Grave After Dark
Darynda wanted to really turn the tables on Charley and force her to have to stay in one place, thus the sacred ground of the convent came into play. It was fun and challenging to write a “locked room” mystery, so to speak, but that’s why she loves writing so much.
The Dirt on Ninth Grave
One of Darynda’s favorite books in the series, she looked forward to writing this book ever since she came up with the concept while plotting Sixth Grave. Part of what makes a romance so fun is the falling-in-love part, and she wanted Charley to fall in love with Reyes all over again. This book was doubly fun because the audience knows all the characters’ backstories, and they get to watch in anticipation as Charley slowly unravels the mysteries of her past, while seeing her fall head-over-heels for the same guy all over again.
The Curse of Tenth Grave
This book had one of those too-close-for-comfort calls. Right before Tenth Grave went to print, after going through editors and copyeditors and readers of all shapes and sizes, a savvy proofreader let Darynda in on a little secret: A Sherpa is part of a culture, not an occupation. Thanks to this razor-sharp reader, Darynda narrowly escaped insulting an entire culture in one fell swoop. Aka, her worst nightmare. Her gratitude is unending.
Eleventh Grave in Moonlight
Darynda dreamed of going to Scotland for so long, she finally decided to just put it in one of her books. She had Charley accidently materialize in the magical country, only to find out weeks after finishing the book that she would finally get to go there herself. In person. For realsies. It was even more magical than she’d imagined it would be, and she can’t wait to go back.
The Trouble with Twelfth Grave
This book has one of Darynda’s favorite epiphanies EVER!!! She thought, what if someone out there in the universe, a child perhaps, knows everything about Reyes and Charley? Everything starting from their supernatural heritage to their human identities? And what if that person wrote a book about them? Or a series of books? Say, perhaps, a set of children’s books and Garrett just happens to stumble upon them while doing research? How fun would that be? And the international bestselling children’s book (fictionally speaking) The First Star was born.
Summoned to Thirteenth Grave
By far the hardest story in the series to write, penning the last Charley book was a bittersweet experience. But Darynda knew she had to go big or go home, so what better way to go out with a bang than to end the world as we know it by starting the zombie apocalypse? Because that’s what writers do. We start apocalypses.

He is a prince and the general of the royal guard. And a werewolf. She is a mermaid and princess of the ruler of the seas. Their meeting shouldn’t have happened because their people are at war with one another. But they did meet and they were both so intrigued by each other that they couldn’t stay away. They knew it was forbidden but their love was too powerful to be ignored. Yeah I know, the way I put it sounds so damn cheesy. But the writing is good and the story has just enough darkness to give it some edginess. I really enjoyed this love story. I was expecting cheese, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I give it 4 stars!
