“T G Ayer has done it again!  And before she released Dead Chaos… how could she?

But then I read Skin Deep.  And I couldn’t put it down!  I started reading at 8am, and with a couple of breaks, I read through until 2:31am the following day.  What a read! …”

21-May Lady   Soulchaser Becky

“Ayer plunges you into the chaotic and secretive world of the skin walkers (aka shapeshifters). Not of the dog kind but of the feline kind and even then she surprises you with the other types such as foxes, cougars, lynx etc.” …

22-May   Crazy 4 Books

“If you like paranormal, urban fantasy, or shifter books you really owe it to yourself to check this book out! It was an awesome beginning to what I’m sure will be a most entertaining new series.”

 

23-May   Yesterday Today and Tomorrow

24-May   J.C. Hart

If you enjoy your fantasy paranormal/urban with a slice of romance, if you like Skin-Walkers and kick butt heroines who are definitely not damsels in distress, then I think you’ll really enjoy this book.

“T.G. Ayer has written a fantastic novel, created a fabulous world with great characters. I’m definitely looking forward to the second book in this series, because the story isn’t done yet. There is more to tell and I really need the next book to see how it will turn out…”

15-May   Patti Larsen

“You work very hard to protect humans—why is that so important to you?

Humans are weak—and I don’t mean that in a bad way at all. They are just vulnerable and they need someone to look out for them. Also, discovering the wraiths was one thing, but seeing them prey on humans who couldn’t fight back? That just pissed me off, you know? I just couldn’t leave them unprotected.

You sound like Syd and her sense of responsibility.”

“Wow. This book is mesmerizing, spine-chilling, and riveting. T G. Ayer did an unbelievable job at melding all these different aspects together into a well-rounded novel.”

17-May   My Book Chatterchat

“T.G. Ayer has once again sucked me in to one of her magical worlds. A world where panther shape-shifter Kailin Odel, does her best to protect her community from soul sucking Wraiths; a world where shape-shifters, mage’s, and all manner of old and new paranormal beings live amongst us in relative secrecy. But someone is killing shifters, decimating the bodies and drawing attention to a world the Para’s want to keep secret; need to keep hidden from the regular population.”

Who Is My Favorite Dead Radiance Character and Why…

By Cath Cowley

Realistically, Bryn would have to be my favorite character; after all, she is the main character with which the whole story is wrapped around. To state the obvious, she is the heroine.

But she is my favorite for a more basic reason; I like her and I want to be her friend.

Bryn has a heart of gold; she’s a giver, a people pleaser. She is reliable and loyal, a listener, the best kind of friend. She’s your average teenage girl, a quiet girl; perhaps a little strange even…Bryn Halbrook is a Valkyrie, and I really want to be her friend.

Time and again, Bryn has obstacles thrown in her way. Sometimes she is quick to recover, springing back fiercely, and other times, she’s frozen, paralyzed with fear, with grief, with guilt.

Bryn makes mistakes, blames herself when things go wrong, when people die, and yet she wants to see and believe in the good of everyone, gives everyone a chance, the benefit of the doubt, desperately hoping for the same in return.

Bryn often has to dig deep, to find strength in what seems to be a never-ending life of pain and disappointment. The strength to stand up for herself against the school bullies, against the system, and even against Gods. And through it all, Bryn is ever hopeful, striving for the courage to carry on, and I really, really want to be her friend.

I could carry on like this for hours, detailing all of Bryn’s redeeming qualities, shine a light on some of her faults too; but the basic facts are these – T.G.Ayer has created a character so realistic, so sweet and unassuming, so broken and yet so hopeful, so human; that I want to be her friend.

I want to stand by her, comfort her, back her up and fight her enemies with her. I want to be a friend to her because I care about her. And that’s not something I can say about every character of every book, but I can say it about Bryn because of the talent of the author to make me believe in Bryn.

Bryn is my favorite Dead Radiance character because I have read a lot of books, and I like a lot of characters, but it’s not often I want to believe in a character, wish for them to be real…

Do I have a girl crush on Bryn…probably?
Do I have a fangirl crush on Tee…absolutely!

Review: Lexieworld by Kimberly Kinrade

Lexie World (The Three Lost Kids, #1)Lexie World by Kimberly Kinrade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I hadn’t expect to acutally enjoy reading a book for kids, especially since my own kids are teens and it felt like way back in ancient times that I’d last read one. I have to say that Lexieworld truly delivered. I loved it, enjoyed the character, the voice and the message the book had to tell.
I’d recommend this gorgeously illustrated book for kids 4-9 and I think this will be the book of choice for a few special birthday girls this year!
I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Review: Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade

Forbidden Mind (Forbidden, #1)Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forbidden Mind ensnares the reader within the lives of Sam and Drake. Sam’s grown up as a Rent-A-Kid. Drake’s been brought in by force. Neither have a choice in what happens to them. The only choice is what they plan to do about it.

I love the strength of the main characters, that they don’t plan on taking things lying down. Filled with well-developed characters and a plot that will keep you at the edge of you seat, Forbidden Mind is unputdownable!

Kimberly Kinrade has created realistic, true characters, making it so easy to believe that such a place could exist. That somewhere, right now, a Rent-A-Kid could be watching you.

Review: Fight (The Hunted, #3) by Patti Larsen

Fight (The Hunted, #3)Fight by Patti Larsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In FIGHT, the third installment of Patti Larsen’s spine-chilling Hunted Series, Reid and his gang have had enough with being the prey. The kids band together to trap and kill as many Hunters as possible, testing the limits if their courage and tenacity.
The aim: to fight back, to breach the fence. The road to freedom is paved with obstacles, especially the conflict which simmers amongst the kids.
This quick paced novel throws the collective fear of these kids off the page, holding you in it’s grip, making you beg for more.
