Last Day 1

Last Day 2Last Day

by Richard LaPlante

Charlie Wolf is an undercover cop assigned to infiltrate the Sons of Fire motorcycle club, suspected of manufacturing and distributing methamphetamine up and down the East Coast. Charlie’s been undercover for a long time—long enough to have broken the two cardinal rules of his work. He’s forged a strong friendship with Ray Sasso, president of the Sons of Fire. And he’s become addicted to meth.

A near-fatal mistake during the attempted bust by the cops leaves a bullet lodged in the right temporal lobe of Charlie’s brain. Operating to remove it would likely kill Charlie. Living with it will change him forever.

Two men linked by a tangle of lies and twisted loyalties. Two men who could not be more different—or more the same. When they meet again, for one of them it will be the Last Day.

Death Dealer 1

Death Dealer 2

Death Dealer


by Ashley Robertson

Death: a word Mia Baron was all too familiar with since the murder of her parents when she was a young girl. Her drive for vengeance was the reason she became a Death Dealer—a soul guide through the spirit realm—signing her life away in her own blood. Pain forged a concrete wall around her heart and no one or nothing would ever penetrate it…until she got what she desired most—revenge.

Deacon Gage craves justice for his own horrific tragedy that forced him into the same life Mia chose, with the same promise of vengeance dangling just out of reach. His expert training makes him an Elite—one of the few Death Dealers to ever achieve such a status—and no one can shift his focus from the blood he seeks.

But when the two are partnered for yet another job and a heart-shattering case rips open Mia’s heart, Deacon realizes he’s the only one who can save her…at a price that might be too much to pay: opening his heart to her. The clock is ticking and her life hangs on the balance of whether he can truly let go or will hold onto his desire for blood.

It's difficult to be taken seriously when you are a member of the Magical community and saddled with the unfortunate name 'Goldie Locke'. It certainly doesn't help if you are also about five feet tall, blond, and most commonly described as 'cute.'. What was a girl to do?

Become one of the most dreaded Magical environmental lawyers of all time?

Goldie isn't there yet, but she's well on her way when a case drags her into uncharted territory-- working with Ordinary officials to figure out why 'unusual' remains are being discovered all around New England.

With her hands full and a new dragon on the way, Goldie's hunches about this case may prove to be all-too true-- this stuff is bad business!

One goal: Hunt the demon that killed my family. Make that two goals: Survive.

Six hours ago, men in dark suits and sunglasses came looking for me.

Two hours ago, I joined their secret organization--the CGE.
Now... All I have to do is survive demon-hunting school.

The classes won't kill me, but the finals might.

Warning: This book contains kick-ass (literally) demon-hunters in training, vampires (not the cuddly, marrying type), and sarcastic (and sometimes snarky) attitudes. No humans were eaten during the writing of this book. Bitten doesn't count...right?

#BookReview: From Frights to Flaws by Sunayna Prasad #LightningBookPromos

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

From Frights to Flaws Banner


From Frights to Flaws
Title: From Frights to Flaws
Series:
Author: Sunayna Prasad
Publisher:
Description: Twelve-year-old Alyssa McCarthy can no longer stand the toughness of her uncle and wants a better life. But one day she discovers not only the existence of magic, but also a villain hunting her down. The villain uses magic and magical technology to kidnap Alyssa to the Fiji Islands. As much as she wants to go home, she has to face some dangerous challenges first. Not only that, the villain himself must also be defeated. Can Alyssa succeed, even with the help of her mentors?



Review: This was a little out of my normal reading element. I decided that I would give a YA book a try since I haven't read many for a while, but I only liked the book rather than fell in love with it. It's a cute story about a girl who has had a rather rough life and then is thrown into the world of magic. She never believed magic existed, but the evidence piles up in such a way that she cannot deny the existence. What I was not crazy about was that I felt like every character that Alyssa ran into just told her exactly what she wanted to know. Bad guys typically don't confess everything that freely and there were so many good guys willing to help her out without Alyssa being anyone special in the magical world at all. I suppose that the way it is written is probably great for a preteen, I just wanted a little more suspense.

#BookReview: Consequences by Liz Schulte

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Title: Consequences
Series: The Guardian Trilogy, Book 3
Author: Liz Schulte
Publisher:
Description: In the final installment of the Guardian Trilogy, hope is born, alliances change, and the fate of a world is held in the hands of two people.

Forced to face the wrath of either Heaven or Hell, Olivia and Holden must choose a side before a war begins and tears their lives apart forever. They always felt an unseen force brought them together, but was it to prevent the end of their world or to ensure it?

Their Secrets threatened to destroy them. Their Choices lead them to this moment. The Consequences cannot be avoided.

Review: It's been a while since I read the first two books in The Guardian Trilogy, but I have been anxiously awaiting the moment I had some free time to finish up the series. You can check out my reviews for book 1, Secrets, at http://www.identitydiscovery.net/2012/05/tuesday-talk-secrets-by-liz-schulte.html and book 2, Choices, at http://www.identitydiscovery.net/2012/05/wordy-wednesday-choices-book-tour.html.

The Guardian Trilogy is about Olivia and Holden. Olivia starts off as a human. She is strongly desired by Hell and the Jinni paired with her soul has no idea why. The guardian (a very low level angel) assigned to her has to try to keep the Jinni from influencing her in any way. This is particularly difficult when Olivia and Holden seem uncontrollably drawn to one another. It takes the death of Olivia's best friend to help her see the evil that lurks there. Inevitably she is killed, but Olivia was destined to become a guardian. Her previous guardian becomes her trainer and the two of them begin investigating the disappearances of other guardians who happen to be located in Chicago, the city Holden now controls as the Jinn leader. This is a summary of everything up to this book.

In the third installment, Olivia and Holden are reunited and in love as strong as they ever were. They deny their feelings as much as possible because they are on opposites sides, but their feelings for one another lead them to work together to continue the search for the guardian traitor. Holden agrees to help in hopes of keeping Olivia afterwards in his life. You will be shocked what the two of them and their close group of ragtag friends discover. Olivia is special in so many ways that you will continue to be on your toes wondering how things will turn out. Holden has become unique to his kind as well, and not just because he appears to have control over guardian. You'll have to read the series to find out all the details. It's an amazing trilogy. I wish there was more to read.

#BookExcerpt: Climb That Fence and Take That Leap by Philip Johnsey #PromoBookTours

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.



“You want me to go do what? Watch frogs at night?” That was the first sentence that started it all. I had written a short article about an event and submitted it to an online community events service. I didn’t think too much about it, I just wrote it.

Imagine my surprise when my friend showed me the local paper with my article right there in print! She said so many people had called about the story, that the next event is totally full.

To say I was excited was an understatement!! I’ve always wanted to enhance the animal/people connection, and after seeing the results of my article, I knew I was on to something fun and rewarding.

A little while later, I was perusing my computer looking at all the articles I had written that were just sitting there. Hmmm….I should put them in a book and send them out into the world. So it began…

Animals are always a great medium for connecting with people and these personal stories take the reader on a journey of self-discovery. Since the stories involve life itself, most anyone can appreciate them.

As I’m composing this, I feel like Edmund sitting on top of the fence. The only way to experience what’s next is to take that leap. I took the leap when I wrote that first article, when I wrote the book, and now again with this guest post.

I hope you enjoy the stories and find ways to climb that fence and take that leap too. See you on the other side!

#BookReview: Tangled Up in Trouble by Olivia Hardin #PromoBookTours

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Trolling for Trouble 1


Tangled Up in Trouble 2
Title: Tangled Up in Trouble
Series: MUAC Series, Book two
Author: Olivia Hardin
Publisher: Olivia Hardin
Description: Lynlee Lincoln isn’t just a witch, she’s also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can’t seem to figure out.

To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.

Review: Lynlee is a neutralizer. Think of her as someone like J from Men in Black, only no aliens. She a witch and her job is to keep the other MAUCs (Magical and Undead Creatures) from exposing themselves to the world. It's inevitable that some humans will find out that there are such things as witches, vampires, goblins, nymphs, etc. but most of the time they will convince themselves that they were just seeing things. In those situations where there is no denying what they saw, Lynlee steps in to clean up the mess. She has several MAUCs she is responsible for cleaning up after, including the daughter of the human man she is dating. That's right, she's dating a human. He knows about her world from having dated her in the past, but now he is back in her life after Lynlee saved his nymph daughter's life. He had no idea she was a nymph which is actually a big part of the reason his daughter was so deathly sick.

Now Lynlee is trying to track down a dark witch while trying to maintain her relationship with Beck. She's also learning a little bit about what it is like to try to be a parent and a mother. Her instincts are there telling her what to do, but they aren't always right on track. It might be because she has so much other stuff to think about with trying to keep the dark witch from hurting one of her charges. Things get really tricky when her personal life becomes a part of the case. Will she find the dark witch before someone gets hurt or killed? Will she give up on her relationship because she feels that being with a human is doomed to fail?

Another great story by Olivia Hardin. I think the characters are very believable and the plot keeps you guessing what will happen next. The ending was very surprising, but it's not a cliffhanger. It was very enjoyable.
