I am not a victim.
At least that’s what I wanted to believe. What I wanted the
world to see. Five years of trying to find the girl I hid from the world.

What was I supposed to do when he walked
into the building? He’d made my high school years a living hell.

Book Tour: Rook by JC Andrijeski

Rook
J.C. Andrijeski
(Bridge & Sword: Awakenings #1)
Publication date: April 22nd 2017
Genres: Adult, Post-Apocalyptic, Romance, Science Fiction

From USA TODAY bestselling author, a psychic warfare alternative history set in a gritty version of Earth. Contains strong romantic elements – a book in the Bridge & Sword World. Apocalyptic. Psychic Romance.

“You are the Bridge…”

Allie Taylor lives in a world populated by seers, a second race discovered on Earth at the beginning of the 20th Century. Psychic, hyper-sexual and enslaved by governments, corporations and wealthy humans, seers are an exotic fascination to Allie, but one she knows she’ll likely never encounter, given how rich you have to be to get near one.

Then a strange man shows up at her work –– then another –– and pretty soon Allie finds herself on the run from the law, labeled a terrorist and in the middle of a race war she didn’t even know existed. Yanked out of her life by the mysterious and uncommunicative Revik, Allie discovers her blood may not be as “human” as she always thought, and the world of seers might not be quite as distant as she always imagined.

When Revik tells her she’s the Bridge, a mystical being meant to usher in the evolution of humanity––or possibly its extinction––Allie must choose between the race that raised her and the one where she might truly belong.

Rook (Bridge & Sword #1) by JC Andrijeski- Excerpt- 564 words

The glass tube slammed him midair.

Knocked sideways, he missed his mark and crashed into the wall short of the alcove he’d been aiming for. He landed in a heap and pulled in his limbs, fought to drag himself back to his feet when the cord pulled, making him lose his balance.

They still had him.

The cord left a hole in his jacket on the right side. He grabbed the braided metal with his bare hands, scanning the glass vial embedded at least a thumb-length into his flesh, right through his jacket. The cord went taut. The teeth closed. Before he could let go, the vial slid out of him in one quick pull, the braided metal ripping skin off his hands as it went.

Revik screamed, clutching his abdomen. Blood poured out between his fingers, soaking his pants and jacket. He mashed his hand over the hole. Fighting shock, he picked himself up, stumbled backwards.

That time, he practically dove into the Barrier.

Everything grew crystal clear.

Ripping the Glock out of its holster, he fired, blindly, running in the opposite direction. The first shot cut a dark hole in the wall, but did what he intended, forcing them behind cover. He switched to his mind, knowing it would be overheard, no longer caring.

He sent up a high, sharp blast of alarm.

His warning cry slammed against something before it reached the main construct walls. He watched it dissipate, useless. Looking around in the physical, his eyes lit on a pull mechanism for a fire alarm. He caught it in the hand holding the gun and yanked it down.

Immediately, a shrieking bell went off.

Doors opened on several sides.

Dehgoies? Eliah’s thoughts rose, as if coming through smoky glass. Where are you? Can you hear me?

Eli… have you got her? Revik blinked back pain, clutching his side. His mind shifted sideways. It threw off his balance, forced him into the forward part of his consciousness.

Gods, the drug. He’d forgotten about the dart.

Eliah… someone’s trying to leave with her. The truth hit him again, bringing a near panic. Look for boats, anything big enough to land a helicopter. They’ll want her off the ship as soon as possible––

Brother, calm yourself! Where are you?

Find her, goddamn it! Start with the atrium. Last I saw, they had her there.

Where are you? I’ll send someone.

No. I’ll come to you. He stared at the blood soaking his jacket, realizing the truth. Eli. Please… I can’t get to her. You have to do this. Please. Please…

Deghoies

He kicked the other seer out of his mind.

The hunters were regrouping.

Limping backwards in a half-jog, he held up the Glock, mashing his other hand into his side. He scanned behind him, looking for open doors. He had to stop the bleeding, or he’d be even more useless. If it meant draining humans from the Barrier like a fucking ridvak, he would get the light he needed to do it.

He thought about Allie again and it got him moving, propelling his legs faster.

He’d asked her for a divorce.

He’d asked her for a divorce, then let her see him with someone else.

If he had to kill everything between here and the outside decks, he wouldn’t let that be the last thing he’d said to her.

Book #95: Redshirts by John Scalzi

Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. It’s a prestige posting, and Andrew is thrilled all the more to be assigned to the ship’s Xenobiology laboratory.

Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the fact that: 
(1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces 
(2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations 
(3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

Not surprisingly, a great deal of energy below decks is expended on avoiding, at all costs, being assigned to an Away Mission. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues’ understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is…and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.

When I saw the cover, the title, and read the blurb, I knew I had to read this book. I’m all about comedy and meta esque stories. There aren’t that many and I’m glad to have found one that was very enjoyable.

Redshirts was exactly what I wanted in a Meta book. It has parallel universes, Star Trek and other Geeky references, and on top of all that . . . it is about the iconic Red Shirt. If you don’t know what or who a Red Shirt is… think back to Star Trek episodes, or watch one of the oldies on Youtube. There is one character who seems to die in every episode. This character has different actors, different deaths, but has one thing in common . . . a red shirt.

Now what’s great about this book, is that our main cast are Redshirts. They are simple crew members of the spaceship The Intrepid. Their story is the type of story you wonder about when you think outside of the main cast. Like, what is the backstory of Redshirt B? What about that random Hufflepuff in Hogwarts? Soldier A in Anime Z?

You can see why I got excited. I love the idea of the non-special person, the non-chosen one, being the main character. That said, this book was awesome. I was laughing at the strange deaths and the comments of the main cast. I was on the edge of my seat, hoping that Dahl and co. would survive the Narration. I even loved the last bit of the book, the strange different narrators that weren’t a main part of Dahl’s world, but were affected by Dahl and co.

Honestly, this was a fun book and I am seriously thinking of looking at more work by Scalzi. No idea if his other work was just as funny, but I’m definitely going to try it out.

Book #94: The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones

When Dee Moreno makes a deal with a demon—her heart in exchange for an escape from a disastrous home life—she finds the trade may have been more than she bargained for. And becoming “heartless” is only the beginning. What lies ahead is a nightmare far bigger, far more monstrous than anything she could have ever imagined.

With reality turned on its head, Dee has only a group of other deal-making teens to keep her grounded, including the charming but secretive James Lancer. And as something grows between them amid an otherworldy ordeal, Dee begins to wonder: Can she give someone her heart when it’s no longer hers to give?

The Hearts We Sold is actually a book I requested on NetGalley, but didn’t win. What’s great is that I did still get it only in last month’s Owlcrate box. In the book club I’m a part of, on Facebook, This is the first book we read for the month.

Now, the first thing I have to say is that I like this book. I do. It is a mix of fantasy or Sci-Fi with contemporary. I wouldn’t say that the author was confused about what genre she wanted this to be. To be honest, I think it was deliberate and her beautiful writing style reflects that.

The prose is almost fairy tale like. Otherworldly. It is well written and I was hooked instantly. The characters were well written and each had their own personal style to them. It was a good book.

And here’s the but… I’m not sure what it is. The book is good, but it didn’t grab grab me. Know what I mean? It was a good fluff read or in between book. That’s what it is.

In all, I’m not sure if I want to keep the book or gift it or whatever. It is a good book and I do recommend it. As a fluff read, if you’re like me.

The Longing and the Lack
C.M. Spivey
(The Unliving #1)
Publication date: September 19th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal

“Gothic curses, deadly love affairs, and vengeful ghosts combine to make this paranormal mystery a compelling page-turner.” — Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin

Lucinda Hightower is no stranger to death.

Since she was a child, Lucinda has been haunted by rabid dogs, suicidal crows, and the ghost of a woman in white. All are omens signaling someone’s imminent demise—except Lucinda’s friends and family are still breathing.

The omens follow her to Ireland and the quiet university in her father’s hometown, increasing in strength and frequency once she meets Damien Reed. A handsome third year student, Damien thrusts himself into Lucinda’s life almost immediately and caresses away the unsavory reputation that shadows him.

It’s not until the ghost sinks her nails into Damien that he reveals his secret: the death omens are for him.

They’re the manifestations of a curse that claims the life of the eldest Reed son every generation. Damien’s time is nearly up. If Lucinda is to save him, she must solve the mystery of her family curse, and lay a spirit’s rage to rest.

A dark romance for fans of Diane Setterfield and the TV show Supernatural, The Longing and the Lack is a Gothic story for the modern age.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

I received a copy of The Longing and the Lack from Xpresso Book Tours for an honest review. Everything I say is my opinion. No compensation was made.

The first thing that grabbed me was the cover. I’m a sucker for a beautiful cover and just look at it! It’s downright gorgeous. I just want to put it out there that the cover screams gothic with an edge. Very nice.

That said, I am torn with the book, to be honest. On one hand, I am eating up the almost gothic story prose, but, on the other hand, I am trying to understand Lucinda Hightower.

Even though this is a first book in her story, she is a minor character in another book. You are given enough information about those books to get an idea on what she is like background wise. This can be good, but I did find myself wondering if I was missing something important in her personal narrative.

Because of that, Lucinda was hard to grasp as a main character. What I did like was her determination for the truth and her ease in relationships. There was no clear sexuality about her and that was refreshing.

 The writing is quick to get into and has that dark gothic feel without feeling foreign. I actually liked this book. I only wish I read the books where Lucinda was a minor character first. I feel I would have understood her character more.

Book #92: The Glass Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg

Three months after returning Magician Emery Thane’s heart to his body, Ceony Twill is well on her way to becoming a Folder. Unfortunately, not all of Ceony’s thoughts have been focused on paper magic. Though she was promised romance by a fortuity box, Ceony still hasn’t broken the teacher-student barrier with Emery, despite their growing closeness.

When a magician with a penchant for revenge believes that Ceony possesses a secret, he vows to discover it…even if it tears apart the very fabric of their magical world. After a series of attacks target Ceony and catch those she holds most dear in the crossfire, Ceony knows she must find the true limits of her powers…and keep her knowledge from falling into wayward hands.

The delightful sequel to Charlie N. Holmberg’s The Paper Magician, The Glass Magician will charm readers young and old alike.

The Glass Magician is the second book in the Paper Magician trilogy. It follows shortly after the first book had ended, a few months later. In this book we see more of the magic systems and the magician equivalent to police.

After what happened in book one, Ceony is no longer as safe as she’d like to be. She is under the watchful eye of Lyra’s companions. And they are well beyond angry.

If the first book lacked action, this one had it. You also see more of Ceony as a person. We meet her family, her friends, and see her phobia in action. This is the book that shows Ceony’s faults and weaknesses.

I found this book to be a quicker read from the first (though I doubt hour wise there’s that much of a difference). The writing is still fun and the world is interesting. I can also see now why Ceony wanted to be a Smelter, magician of metal, so badly.

In all, the book was a good read. I do want to see what happens in the third book. Luckily, I already own it.

Excerpt
In my bathroom, a man kneels on the floor inspecting a gigantic hole of exposed pipes with the roaming beam of a flashlight. I fold my arms and lean into the doorframe.
When I left to meet Aggie everything was functioning. My gaze examines the small room, picking out details: my expensive towels soak up a deluge of water pooling on the tiled floor, there’s a large pile of powdery, crumbled drywall, and then there’s the issue of ass crack—in my face. It is toned and tight, but still, it’s connected to my landlord, Evan Wade.
“Pipes burst, leaking a damn waterfall into 5A,” he says, not bothering to glance my direction.
“Did you have to use my good towels?” I purse my lips.
“I thought about using your sexy lingerie.” He eyes the laundry basket of delicates now sitting on top of the sink. “But the fancy towels seemed like a better option.”
Thanks, appreciate it.” I sidestep him, snatch the basket, and carry it to my bedroom, hiding it in my closet. If he had scrutinized it closer, which he probably did, he would have found an embarrassing amount of granny panties and more sports bras than a Lululemon.
“How long before it’s fixed?” How long before I can get rid of you?
“A week,” his muffled voice answers.
“What?” I race back only to find his sharky grin. Two vertical dimples slice beneath a permanent, mocha-colored five o’

Prologue (Excerpt #1)
* * * Cali * * *

 

My eyes reached the heavens. But I was glad I’d finally listened to Stefani and come, needing desperately to live a little. People filled the large living area. Everyone danced to the beat and seemed to be having a blast. Bout time I did something to make me feel like I was still in my late adolescence, I convinced myself.
With harsh mandates, there wasn’t much adventure in society. Going to school and work pretty much summed it up. Leisure actives were limited. We were allowed to date … that is, until you turned twenty-one. Then the government assigned you a partner for life. A sick joke.
Social functions and parties were a violation of the law. There were no national music groups, except for bands approved for his Highest’s events. The new Emperor of the entire globe had been in rule for the last nine years. The only music we listened to were old CDs, but there were secret local groups, just like at this defiant affair I was attending. This cryptic band had three members. The lead guy’s spiked blue hair was only a part of the show. He couldn’t be caught on the street with that hair style, or enforcement would toss him in the brig. I threw my head back, giggling like a school girl.
“What’s so funny?” Stefani asked.
I inclined my head toward the band. “That guy’s blue-do would render enforcement speechless.”
Stefani’s eyes bulged. “Damn right.”
The next song they performed sported the lyrics “Screw the Law.” A wide smile spread across my face. It was exactly how I felt at the moment. After my second cup of punch, my body began to mellow out. I bopped my head to the beat.
“I’m thrilled I persuaded you to come with me,” Stefani purred.
“Yeah. This is fun.”
“I’ll have to remember that in the future. Get you toasted, then you’ll be more willing to defy the law.”
We both laughed, and I hit her playfully on her arm. A moment later, a male’s voice whispered in my ear. “You’re gorgeous. Wanna dance?”
I turned to face him—Stefani giggled. “Thanks for the compliment.” He raised his eyebrow up and down. He wore gothic attire and had more piercings than I could count. Ears, nose, mouth, tongue. Good looking—just didn’t seem my type. I didn’t want be appear high diddy, so maybe I would accept his invitation after another drink. My shyness wasn’t effaced from my system yet. The thought of dancing with a man made me jittery. I smiled coyly. “Maybe in a bit. Raincheck?”
“Um … sure. I’ll hold you to it.” He straightened his black jacket before walking away.
“You’ve got guys lined up already,” Stefani teased.
“Shut it. You’re getting several stares, too.”
“Well, I’ll definitely take a cutie up on an offer.”
She winked—I shook my head. A fast beat started. Stefani threw her arms up, waving them in the air.
“I love this song! You have to dance with me, Cali.” She dragged me to the dance floor before I could protest.
I did love music, even dancing—I was just bashful about dancing with guys. The melody had a slamming vibe, easy to groove to. Stefani’s shoulder-length caramel hair swayed to the beat. Her grin was contagious. I swung my hips with the grooving bass, and the liquor I consumed heated my veins. The atmosphere was warmer than when I’d arrived.
A very attractive man with smooth, toffee-colored skin strolled up behind Stefani. She giggled, and then plastered her butt against his front. He was hawt! They both moved in a choreographic rhythm. I continued to sway my hips, in my own element, until I felt a radiant heat sizzle up my body. The force of this sensation was coming from the wall. I whipped my head to the side, and my breathing ceased. Damn, this party was full of taunt delectable men! The guy leaning against the wall was even more gorgeous than the dude dancing with Stefani. The definition of pure hotness. His hungry gaze seemed to eat me up. Unashamed, I also wanted to be his dessert. His stare was so penetrating, I couldn’t look away. His arms were crossed against his chest and his mouth parted. Time seemed to stand still, as we were both absorbed in each other’s gaze. In my alcoholic state, I would gladly dance with him if he stepped up to me—kinda hoped he would. I settled for imagining that he was behind me. In a lustful trance, I moved my hips in slow motion—our eyes stayed locked. Hotness must have approved. He grinned wide, and I was undone. His smile made him even more attractive. Definitely the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on.
A ferrous bang vibrated in the room. The commotion broke our “undressing one another’s lustful stare” down. Screams drummed through the air.
“The Popo are here. Everyone scatter!” a dude hollered.

Book #91: Huntress Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff

A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel… Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff’s riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. Everything that follows is my opinion. I was not compensated for what I say in this review.

The first time I came across Alexandra Sokoloff was when I needed a book to read while on vacation in California. I found her book, The Harrowing, and ate it up. I then found out she had written a romance, which I also read. I didn’t know about Huntress Moon or the rest of the series until I saw it on Xpresso Book Tours. It didn’t take long for me to request all of the books.

While I’m waiting for the rest of the series, I am happy to say that I did like the first book, Huntress Moon.  The story is a great beginner to something that seems to blend superstition and thriller.

Huntress Moon is written in two different point of views. There is Roarke, the FBI agent and our hero, and a mystery woman (MW), the killer and person Roarke is after. I personally found the POV made getting into the book difficult at first. Roarke’s narrative is in third person past tense, but the MW’s narrative is in third person present tense.

The present tense, for me, separates emotion from the character. It’s difficult to understand and have an emotional attachment to the MW. Logistically, I really like this. It gives the reader a feel that she is something otherworldly. However, it was difficult for me to understand MW until Roarke heads to Oregon and gets more headway on the case at hand.

Aside from the tense issue (which doesn’t end until the book does), the book was interesting. I felt pulled into the story and the closer to the end, I was leaning into the book as I read. It ended in a way that questions who is the good guy and what Roarke is going to do with the growing knowledge about MW. I’m definitely going to be reading the other books in the series.

Book #90: The Soul’s Agent by Wendy Knight

For as long as there have been people, there has been a fear of the dark. Mothers tell their children there isn’t anything in the shadows that isn’t there in the light. They are wrong. The reason humanity is afraid of the dark is because that’s when demons come out to play. The ghosts that fight them can’t come out until the sun goes down, either. And Soul’s Agents, like Navi? They’re just normal, boring people until the moon claims the sky. And then they aren’t. Death allows lost souls one last chance. Fight with the Agents against demons and darkness and evil and they won’t spend eternity roasting on a spit. It seems like an easy enough choice, but apparently roasting is easy and requires little effort, and fighting, well… Fighting is hard. Twenty-two year old Navi is an Agent, and she is good at what she does. Her only distraction is the boy who broke her heart four years ago-especially when the demons she hunts start hunting him, and she’s the only one who can keep him alive.

I received a copy of The Soul’s Agent via BookFunnel from the author, Wendy Knight. Everything I say here is my opinion. There was no compensation for this review.

Hmmm… what can I say about The Soul’s Agent? Well, I think I should begin in saying this book is what I shall call a Fluff Crackative story. What is Fluff Crackative? Well, the Fluff means that this book was a quick read. It only took me a day and I actually enjoyed the dialogue and story. It is one of those books that fits perfectly in between heavier reads and cleans the reading palette. The fluff book is a very important book in a reader’s library. In my opinion.

What about the Crackative? Welll…. that is not my term, but more a term from my best friend, Crys (said like Chris). It is a ship word for crack and creative. Crack meaning that the story has off the wall stuff and creative because the story goes well with its crack.

It was honestly hard to explain the story to Crys and therefore would be difficult to do here, but I will say that I liked it. I like the idea of Spiritual Probation and I did like the personal drama of Alec and Navi. The book was a mix of contemporary romance with a heavy paranormal edge. Sure, that would mean it’s a paranormal romance, but the romance fell more in the lines of a contemporary in style.

For the first half of the book, it is more about the romance of Alec and Navi. Drama and all. As for the second half, that had to do a lot with Navi and Alec’s coping and the paranormal awesomeness.

In all, the book was fun and a great in between book. I would read another Wendy Knight book.
