Waiting on Wednesday #11: Trial by FIre by Josephine Angelini


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  This meme lets us spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly waiting for.  Of course, I have a huge list to choose from.  The book I can't wait to get my hands on is:



Title: Trial By Fire
Series: The Worldwalker Trilogy
Author: Josephine Angelini
Publisher: Feiwel &Friends 
Publication: September 2nd, 2014
Pages: 384

Goodreads Synopsis

Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.

Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.

But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?



Why I'm Waiting: I love Josephine's stories, and this sounded great!!!  The synopsis really caught my attention, because it sounds really different, unique.  Lily being thrown into a whole new world that everyone is depending on her to save when everyone when she seems so fragile at the beginning, will be interesting.  Of course, I love all stories with a little romance in them.  I also have to say that the cover is what caught my attention.  Love this cover!!!!!  It is beautiful!!!!

In the year 3127, the human race faces possible extinction when a viral outbreak spreads like wildfire during a never ending cold spell.

Lyza Guerrera has spent her entire life trying to hide in the shadows. It didn’t do her any good. An orphan from the former Puerto Rico region, Lyza’s foreign looks simply attract danger, including Barrick. Fortunately for her, Barrick doesn’t seem to have any interest in her, or anyone else for that matter.
After meeting under extreme circumstances, Barrick begrudgingly allows Lyza to tag along with him. Threatening his former employer and witnessing a near upheaval of his old militia camp has given Barrick the realization that circumstances are not only worse than he thought, but he and Lyza are stuck in the middle of it all.
When it seems like their situation can’t possibly get worse, the strength of the Defects – the greatest threat of all – seems to be growing with numbers, and Barrick’s sanity begins to waver amidst it all. Will he get Lyza and her precious cargo to safety or will his uncontrollable feelings and impending psychosis prevent him from reaching their much needed destination?

She resides in small college town Northwestern Nebraska with her son, just a few blocks away from her parents.

Blog Tour: Stone of Destiny by Laura Howard: Review


Title: Stone of Destiny        
Author: Laura Howard
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours
Rating: 4/5 Stars


Synopsis:

Allison thought it was crazy enough when she found out her father, Liam, wasn't entirely human. But now she has to join his magical allies to unravel his former mistress's plans. Aoife wants to keep Allison's parents apart forever.

Despite Allison's efforts to keep Ethan, the only guy she's ever cared about, out of this supernatural mess, fate keeps throwing him back into the mix. 

Will Allison be able to find the amulet that holds the enchantment Aoife placed on Liam and destroy it? Are Ethan' s feelings for Allison strong enough to endure the magic of the Tuatha De Danaan?




Review

Stone of Destiny is a fast-paced story that picked up right where The Forgotten Ones ended.  I was very happy that I was immediately able to start this book right after.  Laura did a fantastic job with the world-building.  The descriptions of Tir na n'Og made it very easy to visualize what it looked like.  The feelings they felt, I was able to feel those too.  I really felt for the characters in this book.  I am a huge romance junkie!!!!  There was some romance in there, but of course I am hoping for more.  I love how this series is original.  I haven't read another series like it so it gets huge bonus points from me there.  

Allison is still on the quest of finding Aoife in hopes of getting the amulet to release the spell preventing Liam from touching Elizabeth. She really finds out how evil Aoife is.  Aoife has come up with a plan in order to make Liam hers.  She will stop at nothing to get what she wants and all she wants is him.  Ethan becomes very protective of Allison so he joins her on this mission.   

I adored Allison in this book.  She really cares about everyone around her.  I love how her relationship is building with Liam.  They start to care for each other.  I want to see a little more growth with them though.  At times, it doesn't feel real, their relationship.  Something is missing.  I love how her and Ethan start getting closer as well.  I hope to see more or their relationship grow on a deeper level.  I adored her sister Samantha.  I couldn't figure out whether she was good or bad.  I loved the fact that it had me second guessing myself.  Aodhan is one of my favorite characters in this series.  I love the relationship he has formed with Allison.  After all that he has lost, he tries with all his might to make sure that doesn't happen to her.  He seems very protective of her as well.  I am still waiting to see what happens with Aodhan and Niamh. 

Stone of Destiny was a fantastic sequel, and I can't wait to see what happens next.  That ending, or I should say cliffhanger, definitely left me wanting more.   I am still waiting on a wow moment though.  This book is a great read filled with action, romance, mystery and suspense.There are so many twists and turns in this book that I was second guessing everything that I thought I had figured out.  It will definitely keep you on your toes.  This is a book that I recommend everyone to read!!!  Each book gets better and better!!!!

Book Blitz: Katrina: The Beginning by Elizabeth Loraine


Title: Katrina: The Beginning (Royal Blood Chronicles)
Author: Elizabeth Loraine
Genre: YA Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Blurbs and review bites:

As a vampire being hunted was nothing new, having to protect those hunting her was.
Royal Blood Chronicles tells the story of Katrina from the age of seventeen, when she's chosen to be the leader of the Protectors and the Five. The Five have been chosen to protect all peaceful races, including humans, from evil trying desperately to take over the world of light. While her father prepared her to fight, her friends have only known lives of luxury, cloistered in the royal houses of Europe.

It’s an action packed coming of age sage, chronicling the lives of Katrina, the Five and all those that join them as The Protectors.
Royal Blood Chronicles starts here with Katrina, the Beginning. It's full of romance, friendship, adventure and betrayal, in a magical, fantasy world beautifully drawn by author Elizabeth Loraine.

Looking for your next YA Series? You've just found it!
Top Selling author Elizabeth Loraine's Royal Blood Chronicles

Best Vampire Book sense HON series!!, July 5, 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Katrina, The Beginning (Book 1) (Royal Blood Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)
This book series needs to become a movie, it got me hooked immediately from the start... can't say enough to say I absolutely love this book and the others so far...

She is a vampire. She is a Royal. Her watchers. What can I say? They sound Devine! She has studied hard with her watchers, she is a great marksman but even better at hand to hand. Her mother is dead. Or is she? Quinn is her love. Or is it just blood lust? Is Damien evil? Or is he her love?

I couldn't read this quick enough! I wanted to devour all it's magic!!

Clearly defined characters with a new take on vampire princesses. Exciting storyline where the heroines of good are vampires it is filled with magic and mystery.

Elizabeth Loraine’s Royal Blood Chronicle series has a developing plot that digs deeper with each additional novel, and her creativity in the design of her characters is astounding. Whether her characters are vampires, humans, wizards or demons, there is always an unexpected plot twist to surprise the reader. The Protectors’ fight to maintain control of the upper world is challenged by unforeseen characters and circumstances throughout the series. There are many authors in the fantasy genre, but Elizabeth Loraine is one of the best. She veers away from the usual supernatural storyline to produce works of remarkable interest to lovers of this genre. Cain is a prime example of her creative mind; he is a thread-climber that is unaware of his full potential as a powerful, magical vampire. Although he has a rather rough beginning, once everything has been righted, Cain becomes a leader no one could hate. His selfless acts and teaching ability are superb and give the reader an insight to his destiny. The same holds true for the other major characters of this series; their intertwined destinies leave the reader wanting more. I applaud Loraine’s creative genius. She takes the myths of old and refurbishes them with pizzazz. I enjoyed reading Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, but I absolutely love Loraine’s Royal Blood Chronicle. Loraine’s plot is much better, and her story-lines are more interesting. Bella’s relationship with Edward is lame compared to the love of Katrina and Quinn, two more protagonists of this series. For fans of the fantasy genre, this series is a must read. I have read hundreds of fantasy novels, and Royal Blood Chronicle ranks in the top five. I recommend this series for anyone that loves unexpected twists, great friendships, and terrific story-lines. This series receives four out of four stars

Cover Reveal: Lure of the Vampire by Bertena Varney: Giveaway



Title: Lure of the Vampire: A Pop Culture Reference Book
Author: Bertena Varney     
Genre: Non Fiction
Cover Artist: Patti Roberts- https://www.facebook.com/PattiParadox
Publisher: Indie Publishing House. LLC - https://www.facebook.com/IndiePublishingHouse

Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Shot Blurb:
Lure of the Vampire is a pop culture reference book that takes you on a journey through the mythology and history of the monstrous vampires – through the romantic and, at times, scary vampires in movies, television, and books. Included in this definitive guide are interviews with “real” vampires and an extensive bibliography, lists, and websites for readers to continue their journey long after they have read the book. The author discusses a variety of vampire-related topics, such as why vampires are currently so “gentle”  in movies, such as Twilight, compared to classics such as Dracula, and why women are lured to the “vampire boyfriend” and read every romance book about these bad boys that they can get their hands on.

Lure of the Vampire provides the readers with clear cut sections beginning with the mythology of the vampire and going next to history, literature, movies, recreation, websites, and to modern times where the author interviews real life vampires.

This is the third and final updated edition of this book. The previous editions have won multiple awards including Amazon and Kindle Best Seller in pop culture and reference categories.
Her vampire live action role playing character was used by Elizabeth Loraine in collaboration on a fiction novella, titled Lillian: A Vampire’s Story which is available at the end of this book for free!

Long Blurb: What is Lure of the Vampire?

The Lure of the Vampire is a pop culture reference book for writers, vampire fans, students and teachers who love to study the mysterious creature of the night. This book is for the fanatics who sit up at night and watch reruns of Buffy for the hundredth time, the Twi-hards that line up for hours before the show just to glimpse the newest Twilight movie, the Truebies who all knows that “waiting sucks” between each season of True Blood and for those diehard traditionalist that balk at all of this “new” vampire craze.
The Lure of the Vampire is also for the new writers who love creating their own worlds where the vampires may be aristocratic and romantic or dark and dangerous; the world where there are castles, heaving bosoms, chivalry and danger of loving a vampire, the dreams of so many women in today’s world.
And finally, The Lure of the Vampire is a book for those who love to study all aspects of the vampire in both pop culture and the world. Whether they are the historian who loves tracing the evolution of the vampire or the sociologist who wants to explore the world of those that live the lifestyle, the reader will find resources here to help them in their quest for knowledge of this lifestyle.
The Lure of the Vampire is divided into ten sections beginning with mythology and ending with modern vampires. Within each section there are lists that will help the reader learn basic and fun facts about that section’s topic. Links to websites are provided to ensure that the reader may find more information about that section without having to search for it on the Internet or in other books. To help supplement a particular subject within that topic, there are personal essays or interviews that give the reader a personal look from the author’s perspective. For example, Lure of the Dead Boyfriend provides the reader with a look at why women love vampire romance while exploring the vampire as a soul mate, an erotic lover, and an escape from the real world.
Lure of the Vampire provides unique interviews with vampire authors, role players, and those that live the lifestyle. The reader can delve into the world of a creator of an alternate reality or learn more about those whose lives lead them to embrace vampirism as a way of life.
Lure of the Vampire is a complete pop culture reference book for those who enjoy vampires and their impact on society. It provides an extensive bibliography that will allow the reader the opportunity for additional independent study.

    Reviews 

    Layla Cook ~ Fairy Author and Assemblage Artist
    Bertena Varney began the journey in creating this book when she was doing her graduate studies. She researched academic databases, interviewed authors, and even did ethnographic research on the subculture of vampires. She is an academic as well as a fan of vampires and has done a great job with blending the two in this book. This is the perfect reference book that is quick grab and covers more than just the typical vampire shows. 

    Scarlette D'Noire ~ Vampires: Romance to Rippers
    The Vampire Professor is the go-to girl and Lure of the Vampire is the go-to book on all things vampire.

    Audrey A’Cladh ~ Vampire Minister and Counselor, Vampires: Romance to Rippers
    Bertena gives a fresh and unbiased look at the complex subject of vampires; where most books rehash the same tired notes, she unearths overlooked melodies!
                                                                                                                            

    ~The Lure of the Dead Boyfriend~
    In the beginning was a bald monster with a long face, pointed ears and chin, elongated fingers and sharp talon claws, which lost its humanity and control over its monstrous side. It was lured to a young maiden’s window. All of a sudden, with a sudden rush that could not be foreseen and with a strange howling cry that was enough to awaken the terror in any beast, the figure seized the long tresses of hair. He held her to the bed…she screams…shrieks...and he seizes her neck in his fang like teeth… a gush of blood and a hideous sucking noise follows.
    This picture of rape and torture is the bedroom scene of the 1847 penny dreadful, Varney the Vampire: Feast of Blood. The author Thomas Prest painted pictures of the vampire being a sexual monster wanting to devour women, women who were portrayed as being very passive and weak. In these stories the vampire bite was a metaphor for rape and the monster wanted his victim aware of every agonizing violation. This is the vampire that was created when men ruled the horror world: a creature cursed to walk the earth for eternity searching not for love but for food.
    Now today, the story reads more like this, “He met my eyes with his penetrating gaze. Suddenly it was hard to breathe. ..My heart pounded in my chest… my knees threatened to buckle. I had never seen such a gorgeous man…something about him felt dark and dangerous and desirable. I lifted my chin to give him better access to my neck. He smiled, showing a hint of fangs.” This excerpt is from Lynda Hilburn’s The Vampire Shrink.  Lynda discussed on her blog that since women have taken over the horror genre the vampire has evolved into a gorgeous, sensuous, sexual, romantic, bad boy of the night.
    Even though vampire literature is usually snubbed by many writers and fans, over the last ten years the rise in vampire literature has increased exponentially. Many book reviewers claim that vampire literature displays women as sluts and submissive. This may be true in some series but overall this trend has changed quickly. Many writers such as C.J. Ellisson, author of The Vampire Vacation Series, have developed a strong empowered female character that is a monogamous vampire who loves her human husband. The scenes are hot but very respectful to women and actually show how they may embrace their sexual side without embarrassment.
    Many more vampire authors have their female character as empowering and strong. They walk alongside the vampire in their journey rather than being the damsel in distress or the hapless victim of his sexual prowess. The current trend for this new genre of vampire romance literature is one that offers the readers an escape from the pressures of the real world while delivering to them either a soul mate or an erotic lover in the form of a vampire. So, just what is the lure of the dead boyfriend to the modern female reader?
