The Hunter's Moon by Beth Trissel Blog Tour {Review + Giveaway}







Series: The Secret Warrior #1
Release date: December 14th 2015
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Morgan Daniel has been in the witness protection program most of her life. But The Panteras have caught up with her and her younger brother. Her car is totaled, she's hurt, and the street gang is closing in when wolves with glowing eyes appear out of nowhere and chase away the killers. 

Then a very cute guy who handles a bow like Robin Hood emerges from the woods and takes them to safety at his fortress-like home.

And that's just the first sign that Morgan and her brother have entered a hidden world filled with secrets...



My Review  




Morgan and her brother Jimmy are on the run from the Panteras. Everywhere they go they are always there. Desperate, they take their aunts advice and go to the mountains. Before they reach their destination the Panteras catch up. Stranger still is that they get rescued by wolves, and then a cute guy shows up offering protection. Next thing she knows her and her brother are staying with these stranger that say she is linked to a prophecy.

Morgan is about to find out she has a lot more to worry about than the Panteras.

The Hunter’s Moon was a short but good read. It was a little slow at times for me and I kept putting it down. There were a lot of good moments though and that kept me coming back. This book is the start of the series and I know that the second one is going to be tons better. One thing that bothered me was Morgan is 16 years old but I kept thinking she was older, maybe that’s what the author wanted us to think. I guess she did have to grow up fast to protect herself and her brother. Morgan gets the shock of her life when she finds out about the things that go bump in the night and that she is part of a prophecy. The ending of this book was great! I loved how it ended and it promising for awesome things in the next book. The second one is going to be more action packed bc I think that they will finally have a show down. I’d like to meet the lizard lady and her daughters as well. That seems like it’s going to play an important part in the next book or books. Can’t wait to read it!


Overall The Hunter’s Moon is packed with sexy wolves, murderous panthers, and a prophecy that has been in the making for centuries.

Quote: "In every bad thing, there is something to cherish. "

Shade Me by Jennifer Brown Blog Tour + Giveaway








Series: Nikki Kill #1
Release date: January 19th 2016
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Purchase: Amazon

SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS: 
Nikki Kill does not see the world like everyone else. In her eyes, happiness is pink, sadness is a mixture of brown and green, and lies are gray. Thanks to a rare phenomenon called synesthesia, Nikki’s senses overlap, in a way that both comforts and overwhelms her.

Always an outsider, just one ‘D’ shy of flunking out, Nikki’s life is on the fast track to nowhere until the night a mysterious call lights her phone up bright orange—the color of emergencies. It’s the local hospital. They need Nikki to identify a Jane Doe who is barely hanging on to life after a horrible attack.

The victim is Peyton Hollis, a popular girl from Nikki’s school who Nikki hardly knows. One thing is clear: Someone wants Peyton dead. But why? And why was Nikki’s cell the only number in Peyton’s phone?

As she tries to decipher the strange kaleidoscope of clues, Nikki finds herself thrust into the dark, glittering world of the ultra-rich Hollis family, and drawn towards Peyton’s handsome, never-do-well older brother Dru. While Nikki’s colors seem to help her unravel the puzzle, what she can’t see is that she may be falling into a trap. The only truth she can be sure of is that death is a deep, pulsing crimson.

Promo Tour: Unfearing by Shane Morgan + Giveaway!



Check out the promo event for the second book in Shane Morgan's YA Fantasy trilogy. 


Series: The Unresisting #2
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Natasha has finally learned the truth about herself, but she’s also discovered that having so much power comes with a price. 

After a close encounter with dark forces, Nat decides to trust the one person Chace warned her against, traveling to a dangerous place where no Ledarian is welcomed. 

Love is tested and more secrets are uncovered as Nat seeks a way to relinquish her vulnerable state and face her most powerful threat ever.



~EXCERPT~
My heart felt as if it would burst from my chest as I watched hopelessly while Ethryen ascended into midair, his fingers tightly wrapped around Chace’s neck. "Chace!" I cried, running towards them. 
Jesse grabbed my arm and tugged me back. "Don’t!" he warned as Ethryen floated over the dark pit with Chace. "He’ll drop him." 
"Do something!" I screamed at him, and then looked across at Ophelia and the man with long gray hair. 
They took slow steps forward but halted when Ethryen yelled, "Back! Or I’ll release him to the depths of this pit!" 
"Why can’t you just give up?" Chace choked out. "It’s over!" 
Ethryen growled. "It’s never over!" He drenched himself in a massive amount of red flames. It seeped from his body and trailed along the rocks to the ground of the cave, blazing all around us. "Give me the amulet or watch them die!" 
Chace struggled to free himself, clawing at Ethryen’s fiery hand at his neck. 
I moved forward again. Jesse wrenched me back. "We have to help him!" I shouted through clenched teeth. 
Ethryen glared down at me, cackling viciously. He commanded his flames to blaze higher. It flared in front of me and Jesse, forcing us back against the rocks. Jesse moved me behind him, protecting me from the flames. I tightly grasped his arm, desperate, wanting so badly to stop Ethryen once and for all. 
The monster spun back to Chace. "The amulet!" he barked. "Release the power to me! Now!" 
Chace gazed down at me with widened eyes, remorse veiling his face. Then with his left hand he started to rifle in his pocket. 
"Don’t do it!" Ophelia urged. She tried to diminish Ethryen’s flames with her own, but it was useless. The fire only blazed more, keeping us back. 
Fearing for our lives, Chace snatched the amulet out of his pocket and held it up before Ethryen. 
"No!" Dorin, the older man, and Ophelia shouted all at once. 
"Speak the words!" Ethryen ordered. "Now!" 
"Stop your flames first!" Chace bargained, tight-lipped and fuming. 
Ethryen growled, "Do you really think you can bargain with me, boy?" He waved his free hand and the red flames edged closer to us. Our backs pressed against the rocks. Should his fire touch our bodies it would have the same impact on the others as it did on me earlier. And I wasn’t sure I’d survive another hit like that. 
"I’ll do it!" Chace hollered fearfully, his hand shaking with the amulet. He looked down at me, and I knew what he was about to do. Chace would give Ethryen what he wanted just so he could protect me. 
I couldn’t allow it. 
There must be a way to stop this.
