Book Review: Dead End

The finale is here to the Kiera Hudson Series Two. I have been dying to get to this point for a while now. Having ten books in a series is hard on a reader, hate to imagine how it is on the writer. As a reader, it gets to where you are dying to find out the ending. But, then you look at the list of books and think I can’t skip any or I won’t understand the ending. So, it drives the reader nuts and makes them hungry to finish each book. I would like to say it is a good thing I have Kindle Unlimited for these series of books or I would be bankrupt trying to keep up with all the books.

The Review

Kiera, Murphy and the other half-breeds are on the attack. They end up not fairing as well as they should. When Kiera faces off against an old foe, she comes to realize the choice the elders lay before her. Will she save her friends from the life they live? The final book in this series is by far the most climatic.

I loved this book to high heaven. Not only did Tim O’Rourke tie up all the loose ends with precise precision, he left you hungry for the next series. The ending is heart breaking but the story to get there is magnificent. I by far enjoyed watching each character evolve in this book and take the lead. It was especially refreshing to see Kayla take hold of her life and take revenge for a past event forced upon her. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an epic battle unfold—along with anyone eager to read a series for anyone eager to read books with a complexity to them.  

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

Book Review: Dead Lost

We are getting close to the end of this series. The tension is growing with each book and it gets almost unbearable to get to the ending. Now that Jack has made the ultimate sacrifice a friend is now running free in the world unknown to the others. Potter now faces off against the Photographer and finds his old friends Kayla and Sam. Things get heated as Luke’s betrayals and schemes come to the light.

The Review

Isidor is back thanks to Jack Seth. He is now in search of his true love Melody Rose. What he finds is nothing that he expected. With the vampyrus about to break free into the world to rage war and Potter running ragged. Things seem doomed for our heroes as everything hits the climax.

This book was full of twists, turns and so much excitement. I couldn’t put it down till I finished it in two days’ time. The way Tim O’Rourke continues to keep the story chugging forward with no snags is beyond me. There are so many underlining story-lines that need to get pulled together, and it is fun to watch. Highly recommend this book and this series. Can’t wait to get my hands on the finale.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

The Underworld Saga Blog Tour

Greetings guys and gals. Welcome to another Friday. I got a special treat in store for you all. Today I’m featuring Eva Pohler’s series, The Underworld Saga. It is a YA Paranormal Romance that looks awesome. I think I’m going to get in on this one. Hope you enjoy and gift it some thought it would be an awesome series to start this weekend :).

Thanatos
The Underworld Saga Book 1
by Eva Pohler
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Dive into a world in which the ancient gods of Greece are real.
Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she’s manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.
Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.
The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.
**Get it FREE**
Series Trailer
Challenge of Hades
The Underworld Saga Book 2
Thanatos and Therese’s love story continues in the second book of this epic young adult series by USA Today bestselling author Eva Pohler.
Ten agonizing months have gone by since Therese faced off against her parents’ murderer at Mount Olympus, and she suspects Thanatos’s absence is meant to send her a message: go on with your life. She tries to return Pete’s affections even though her heart aches for the god of death. Then she becomes infuriated with Than when he says that he’s “been busy.”
In cahoots with her new friend, who’s gotten in with the Demon Druggies at school, Therese takes a drug that simulates a near-death experience, planning to tell Than off so she can have closure and move on, but things go very, very wrong.
Eventually she learns that Than has been busy searching for a way to make her a god, and he’s found it, but it requires her to complete a set of impossible challenges designed by Hades, who hopes to see her fail.
A New Goddess
The Underworld Saga Book 3
Death is not the worst fate for a goddess.
The Olympians don’t tolerate oath-breakers.
Therese may have finally succeeded in becoming a goddess, but if she wants to remain one, she’ll have to discover her unique purpose and make some allies among the gods. Artemis sends her on a seemingly impossible quest across the world, while Than searches for a way to appease Ares. To make matters worse, Therese’s unborn baby sister’s life depends on the outcome of her quest.
Can Than and Therese finally live the life they’ve dreamed of? Or do the gods have other plans for them?
The House of Hades
The Underworld Saga Book 4
Just when things were looking up for Than and Therese, everything crumbles.
Eighteen-year-old Therese Mills has second thoughts about marrying Thanatos when she learns that no god has ever been faithful to his wife. But before she can move out of Than’s rooms and into Hecate’s, the Underworld is attacked, she and her friends are crushed, the souls are unleashed, and a malevolent goddess threatens to unhinge Mount Olympus.
Hypnos has just made a deal with Hades to have his turn in the Upperworld, but before he can tempt Jen with a kiss, he’s called back to rebind the souls and defend the House of Hades, and he unwittingly puts Jen and her family in harm’s way.
Can Hip, Than, and Therese save the living and the dead?
The Athena Alliance
The Underworld Saga Book 5
She never thought her wedding day would be like this.
When Zeus invites Therese and Thanatos to a party on Mount Olympus in their honor, they and the other gods who have formed the Athena Alliance are immediately suspicious of a trap. They fear Zeus has learned of their desire to free Metis and Cybele and to stand up for all the women he has wronged.
Although Therese recruits Dione, Amphitrite, and others to the Alliance, Pete has unwittingly sabotaged their plans by revealing to Zeus the prophecy from the ghost of Mr. Holt. And now, the day that might have been the most wonderful day of Therese’s life (her wedding day) will be wrought with conflict where someone close to her is fated to die.
Can Therese and the other gods in the Alliance bind the almighty Zeus and restore justice and true democracy among the Olympians? Or will Zeus succeed in swallowing Therese and separating her from Thanatos for all eternity?
Hades’s Promise
The Underworld Saga Book 6
Therese never expected to find herself in Circe’s battlefield again, and this time she fights for things more important than her life.
Before Therese and Thanatos can come to terms with the uncertain future of their unborn twins, Poseidon is attacked and both his wife and trident are stolen.
Therese is forced to deliver her babies in the midst of an all-out war with enemies more powerful than the Olympians.
Hypnos 
The Underworld Saga Book 7
Therese doesn’t like being stuck on the sidelines, especially when the entire pantheon is in trouble.
Hypnos and Jen aren’t married long when they realize something’s missing: they both want to have a child, especially when they see how happy Therese and Than are with their twins. But the creation of new gods is against the rules, and they aren’t willing to give up their immortality.
Hypnos goes to Mount Olympus to offer Zeus a deal. He’ll make it his mission to find out the source of the recent attacks on Gaia–horrible earthquakes that have already released two monsters from the Titan Pit–if Zeus will agree to let him and Jen have one immortal child.
Because the attacks are getting humans killed and none of the other gods have been able to discover a lead, Zeus, in his desperation, agrees. But this new quest just might get Hypnos swallowed and trapped for all eternity, and there seems to be nothing Therese and Than can do to stop it.
Hunting Prometheus
The Underworld Saga Book 8
Hermie and Hestie never asked to be demigods.
Unlike others of their kind, they aren’t interested in going on quests and being the center of a world-changing prophecy. But when Zeus learns of Apollo’s vision–of the twins finding Prometheus, Zeus’s number one enemy–the hunt for Prometheus begins.
Zeus and his allies want to bind Prometheus and to kill the twins before their threat of a revolution becomes a possibility. If Hermie and Hestie don’t find the Titan first, they have no chance of fulfilling their destiny or of surviving Zeus’s threat against them.
Storming Olympus
The Underworld Saga Book 9
The rebellion led by Hades prepares to storm Mount Olympus.
But their every move is sabotaged. Morpheus is torn between his allegiance to his Underworld family and the oath he swore to Zeus under duress. Forced to play both sides, Morpheus sees no hope for the rebellion.
Hermie and Hestie share Morpheus’s despair. Although Poros turned them into gods, the transformation has only heightened Hermie’s debilitating fears. And even Hestie’s fierce determination isn’t enough to overcome her trust issues.
As the gods square off, how can one identify the friend from the foe?
Read the surprising conclusion to USA Today bestselling author Eva Pohler’s The Underworld Saga.
Persephone
An Underworld Saga Prequel
 
Unrest brews among gods and mortals alike when Hades makes a deal with the Fates to end his loneliness in the Underworld.
But when Persephone proposes to conspire with him in a plot against Demeter, things get out of hand.
Find out the truth of how Hades and Persephone met and fell in love and the impact it had on the rest of the pantheon in the throes of the Trojan War. Learn how their children–Hypnos, Thanatos, Megaera, Tisiphone, Alecto, and Melinoe–came into being. Discover why they were assigned their respective duties as Sleep, Death, the Furies, and the goddess of ghosts. Find out the real reason why the Olympians possessed such profound disdain for these Underworld gods.
This prequel to The Underworld Saga is more than a retelling of the Persephone myth. Many more of the ancient myths are woven together to reveal the conflict, tension, and relationships among the gods in one of the most beloved pantheons in human history.
Persephone can be read before or after The Underworld Saga, but might be enjoyed best at the end.
Charon’s Quest
An Underworld Saga Novel
The ferryman of the dead is forced to leave the life he’s always known.
​Apollo has had a vision: as the life of each soul flashes before Charon’s eyes, the ferryman ages like an old man. Charon needs to experience his own adventures to become youthful again, or he will soon die. The last thing Charon expects is to fall in love with a mortal woman—someone he can’t take with him when he returns. Charon must decide whether to abandon the love of his life or his duties.While Charon’s Quest shares the world of The Underworld Saga (a bestselling paranormal romance/urban fantasy series), it can be read before or after or anytime in between the rest of the books in the saga.

Book Review: Dead Push

We are getting close to the finale of this series. In Dead Waters the ending left you screaming in pain, rolling on the floor. This next book brings you resolve and hope that happiness is still possible. This book features two characters not seen working together—they actually are enemies. But, this time around Jack Seth and Potter team up hoping to save Kiera and her friends.

The Review

Potter and Jack Seth are standing in the railway station Lilly Blu brought them too. Now with one mission in mind they have to find the photographer. So, they both head back through the layers to find this person. Jack gets partnered up with Isidor and Potter has to keep a watchful eye on the Kiera from the layer they are within. They can’t be seen and need to keep from changing events. Will these two find the photographer? Or, will they mess up big time and destroy everything?

This book is slightly confusing since it involves working within the layers and different wheres and whens. I still find that confusing to understand. However, Tim O’Rourke does a wonderful job weaving the tale to help those that get confused. He does such a good job unfolding a story already told through a different POV it is like reading something completely new. You even get to see the inner thinking of how each storyline is pushed and pulled. Love this book and think is is by far one of the best featuring Potter in the POV and it also has the bonus of Jack Seth.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

DEAD PUSHDead Push

“…Most of them just sit as if waiting for someone to join them on their impending journey. Others are rushing for their train as if late for some important meeting. They can’t wait to board one of those trains below ground. When I first discovered this place, I don’t know how long I sat here watching the dead hustle and bustle about, queue at the ticket office and take drinks from the vending machines. Like any new place you visit, like your first day at a new school or in a new job, you soon figure out how things work. I knew I was dead…”

Alicen Scott_400x400Alicen was born in the deep south. Growing up as a disabled, opinionated, female in that environment was difficult for her. She developed C-PTSD before she was a year old, but she wouldn’t be diagnosed until she was in her thirties.

Her love of writing didn’t develop until she was in her twenties, but once it did it took off at full speed. Since then she’s run several blogs, done book reviews for indie authors and started working on both her autobiography and her first New Adult fantasy book collection, The Mythical Universe.

She’s choosing to self publish her novels and her autobiography because she wants to keep control over her work and her image. Alicen wants her stories told in her voice. So much of her life was chosen for her by others, she won’t let it happen again.

When she’s not writing, Alicen enjoys advocating for the LGBT+ community and the disabled, hanging out with her friends and partner and spending time with her two cats, Dittle and Odie.

Her story may be one of triumph, but she refuses to become just another disabled person labeled as inspirational for pursuing her dreams. Staying true to herself is what’s most important to her throughout this process. While self publishing may be more difficult, Alicen has never done things the easy way.

Book Review: Dead Water

Now that the trips down memory lane have ended the excitement will now come back into play. We are now onto the seventh book in the Kiera Hudson Series Two series. This book gets things back on track and has more excitement in the pages.

The Review

Sam and Kayla are missing. Hoping to find their friends Kiera, Potter, and Murphy set off towards the Dead Waters hoping to find them along the way. Along the way they find that they are being followed not only by skin-walkers but also statues. Why are they following them? Is Kiera leading them to the Dead Waters? The only way to find out if they make it in one piece is to read the book.

This book was refreshing. I enjoyed the pace it moved and kept the excitement running smoothly. The book didn’t overwhelm you or leave you wanting more. It kept you with the hunger to get to the next book. However, you start to wonder who is the mastermind behind the journey these heroes have been faced with.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

Creature’s Weekly: Gargoyles

gargoyle on city tops under moonlightOne of my favorite creatures growing up were gargoyles. I loved the Disney series so much I couldn’t get enough of it. This love for this show is what inspired my Vortex Series though. The Guardians are gargoyles from another realm that protect those of paranormal descent in the human realm. They have human like bodies with skin the color of copper, bluish hide, or bronze. Each gargoyle has a long tail they use for balance an as a weapon. They have razor sharp claws the retract on their hands and feet. They even have razor sharp teeth that almost make them look like vampires and have eyes almost like black wholes.

They are actually a beautiful race that many don’t understand within the human realm. Cassie Armel is one of the first humans to work alongside them without fear. She helps them protect those the Triad seek to destroy, which turns out to be her partner Max. One of the biggest rivalries though is the Guardians verse the werewolves. They just don’t get along probably because they both are a dominant species. This will make working with Garrick and Max interesting for Cassie.

If you haven’t had the chance to check out Gargoyle Sighted the first book in my Vortex Series I strongly suggest you do. Each month I release a new chapter to my subscribers and will offer it as a freebie in ebook format once completed to them. Sign-Up Today to see more about this wonderful species.JENKINS_2019_VORTEX_NEWSLETTER


You ever hear about the first story of how a gargoyle was created on the side of our church buildings? Check this out here:

The priest Romanus struck a deal with villagers of Rouen, promising to take care of the dragon called La Gargouille if they agreed to be baptized Boden Gargoyle Sentineland to build a church. The villagers agreed, and the priest headed to the River Seine, where he subdued the dragon in its cave and led it back to the town to be burned at the stake. The dragon’s head and neck, however, were well-tempered from his fire-breathing habits, and so would not burn. The remnants were instead mounted on the town wall. –hence, the first true gargoyle! (https://www.mythicalrealm.com/creatures/gargoyle.html)Sketch of tattoo art, gargoyle monster sitting in a tree

I didn’t know about gargoyles connection to dragons, but after reading that little story I now know why I love them just as much as dragons. 🙂

Book Review: Dead Wolf

This series is turning out far from expected. So, far several of the books turned out to be trips down memory lane. These trips unfold a story that helps create the bigger picture. Each book shows how delicate Tim O’Rourke has woven each thread and needs to be shared in a timely manner.

The Review

Murphy and Potter have come to save Kiera only to find that she saved herself. Now faced with the reality of his failed attempts Potter faces her wrath. Not only that Murphy now has to fuss up to his passed. Kiera now knows the truth about herself and her past. Now she has to face Murphy as he relives his mistakes by telling her and Potter everything.

This book turned out to be similar in style to book five. But, instead of Seth reliving his past now it is Murphy’s turn. Tim O’Rourke placed delicate threads and they are slowly unraveling before Kiera’s eyes. This book was interesting and kept my interest but fell short to the others. I found myself interested to an extent but wandered away to other adventures. Overall, the only reason I finished it was because I love Murphy as a character and I was eager to get to the next book in the series.

Ranking: 4 out of 5 stars!


The Book

Book Review: Dead Seth

We are now to the halfway point for this series. Book five is by far one of my favorites because you get to see inside the mind of Jack Seth. You get to see the boy before he became the killer they know him to be. What makes a killer? How does his child hood effect the way he ends up as an adult? You will find out the horrors of his past and how it connects to Kiera Hudson.

The Review

We left Kiera Hudson as a captive of Jack Seth. Now facing death at his hand she believes Potter has betrayed her. Her friends aren’t coming and she is on her own. She is turning to dust by the minute. The worst fate is sitting across for a killer as he tells her the story of his life while her father bleeds on the floor.

Emotions are high in this book and leave you craving more. I found this book refreshing because Tim O’Rourke lets you see inside the eyes of Jack Seth. You get to see the story of his life unfold and how it has affected him. He even lets his guard down and shows Kiera a side to him she never knew existed. Kiera will face yet another choice forced on by Jack himself. Will she become a statue, let her father die, or save Jack? The twists and turns left me reeling with excitement. This by far is one of my top favorites. Highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to get into the mind and past of a killer.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

Book Review: Dead Statues

We are now on to the fourth book in the Kiera Hudson Series Two collection. In the last book we left our heroes fleeing for their lives. One of the group gets killed off and they are now in mourning for this person. I won’t name names because that would ruin it for you as the reader. This next book is twisted to the core as a new enemy appears that they haven’t figured out yet if they are friend or foe.

The Review

Our heroes are now fleeing for their lives. Kiera finds out Potter is keeping secrets from her and she has to make a decision. This decision to find her father will jeopardize their mission and possibly be her end. Now they know the pictures they have been finding with the word ‘Push’ on them are from events not happened yet. They only problem is if the photographer witnessed at the scene is a friend or foe.

In this adventure things get heated between Kiera and Potter leaving their relationship on the brink of destruction. The emotions are high and Tim O’Rourke leaves you turning the page with hunger to find the ending. I couldn’t put this book down with so many dangers on all sides the excitement never ends. The ending leaves you in fear for Kiera Hudson’s life, but does she make it out of this one alive? Find out by reading this awesome new installment in the series number two.

Book Review: Dead Angels

Book two in the Kiera Hudson Series Two took us away from the story line in book one. Now getting back on track we are back at Hallowed Manor with the injured Sam and the distraught group. In this book things start to get more complex into the series and takes you down a road not expected.

The Review

The group is back at Hallowed Manor recuperating from their ordeal in book one. Kiera is still heartsick over the decision Jack Seth forced on her. While Kayla tends to an injured Sam. Hoping to save their new friend they flee Hallowed Manor hoping to save Sam from becoming a skin-walker.

Along the road they find themselves hunted by the skin-walkers and fighting for their lives. A turn of events takes them to seek refuge in a railway station where Isidor spins a story from his past for his friends. The end of the book is a tearjerker and will leave your heart broken.

I was excited to get back to Kiera and the main story line. However, this book turned out to be more of a trip down memory lane for Isidor. This was a refreshing read and extremely interesting. I loved getting to know Isidor more and finding out more about the pushed world. The ending left me heart broken because someone dies. I will not say who but it will leave you devastated. Highly recommend this book to all the Kiera Hudson fans out there or someone looking for a fun twist on the vampire line of books. It is by far not the tradition vampire story but has awesome creatures called vampyrus.

Ranking: 5 out of 5 stars!

Book Review: Dead Night

The series is just getting interesting with book one being awesome as always. Now we move onto book two in the Kiera Hudson Series Two. This is an interesting twist to the story line for Potter has to face his first love, Sophie. Except this time he is facing her in a pushed world where she doesn’t know who he is.

The Review

Overall, this was an interesting book that took you down a path not expected. Having Potter face his first love once again but in a pushed world leaves him facing obstacles and secrets. Now being with Kiera he finds himself torn when Sophie shows interest in him and he has to make a choice. Not only that with skin-walkers hunting Sophie they both find themselves in a fight for their lives.

This was an interesting read. However, I see this book more as a way for the author to explain the way the world is than anything. Overall, that is the only reason I think it fits into the series itself. Potter always has a way of getting himself into trouble and find himself in situations that end up making him keep secrets from the one he loves, Kiera. This book is well written and enjoyable to read. Highly recommend it to those interested in this series or wanting to get to know Potter more in depth.

Ranking: 4 out of 5 stars!

Book Review: Love for You Alone

DISCLAIMER: THIS BOOK CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE UNDER 18 YEAR OLD.

Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday, I sure am. The nice thing about this Tuesday we are bringing the Rizer Wolf Pack review series to a close. Yes today we are reviewing the final book in the series, Love for You Alone. I thought this book ended the series well and brings great hope to the world within its pages. Check out the review below.

The Review

Victor has to face his passed. A love left lost with betrayal believed to be mixed into it has turned the woman of his dreams against him. But, in order to protect his new pack he does the unthinkable, he kidnaps her. Now facing an angry tigress he is in for the fight of his life.

Nicole Lehenengoa is a descendent from the first shifters. Her blood is special and both humans and shifters want to get their hands on her. She doesn’t trust easily and only is looking for one thing—continue her bloodline. Will she put trust in an old love that betrayed her or in a man she shouldn’t trust.

Amelia Wilson strings together a powerful love story that has you rooting for Victor. The only thing is the way he goes about getting his woman is questionable at times. But, what do you expect from a man that is clueless when it comes to the woman he loves. I found this book to be a great ending to the series and wish it continued. Highly recommend this book and all the ones before it to those searching for a shifter series that gives you all kinds of twists and turns.

Stars: 5 out of 5 stars


The Book

T51j6NdjE9OLhe man versus shifter war may have come to an end, but the shifter on shifter fight is just beginning.

Nicole doesn’t know how it happened. She can’t explain how she fell for Victor when they were still so young, and when everyone insisted it would burn out.

Victor is in the past, or at least that’s where he was supposed to be until he kidnapped her from her pack. Nicole is a furious shifter ready to draw blood, even if it does belong to the shifter she once loved and trusted.

Nicole’s temper has not weakened over time but Victor won’t give up on what they once had together. He will walk through fire to be with Nicole and claim her as he should have so long ago.

But what chance does a werewolf shifter have of charming a tigress?
