As suggested by a fellow reader – thank you Jennifer!
Forbidden: a world where vampires are real, where magic is possible and where love still conquers all.
- Forbidden: The Sacrifice (Book 1)
- Forbidden: The Ascension (book 2) —> whoa! I read the synopsis – this one looks good (well they all do, but a vampire & a human – my favorite!)
- Forbidden: The Revolution (book 3)
- Forbidden: The Temptation
Per the author’s website:
BOOK 1: Warning: This book contains one bad-ass demon, spectacular shagging, a feisty American heroine, and one very hot, very British, knife-wielding shrink.
BOOK 2: Warning: This book contains one fabulously feisty redheaded heroine, one hunky holy-man-turned-rebel vampire, a group of corrupt religious zealots, women in chains and plenty of scorching hot sex.
Next review coming up will be for Kathy Love’s “My Sister is a Werewolf” – fun read, and I could almost relate (‘cept for the “werewolf” part 😉 )
But until I finish my review, here is a list of news updates from our favorite authors:
While this isn’t a “tweet”, it is VERY newsworthy for us “Feverholics” –
Karen Marie Moning’s latest updates:
- Karen Marie Moning’s FeverCon registration is still open (until Aug 7th), and for those of you who are subscribed to her newsletter, she just emailed out an itinerary. Highlights are:
A concert with Neil Dover and the BloodRush Band featuring material from his new CD ShadowSong with special performances by Eric Etebari and Phil Gigante.
As per the author:
When psychological counselor Megan Chase promises listeners to her new radio call-in show she’ll slay their personal demons, they believe her. So do the personal demons.
Megan doesn’t know she’s the only human alive without a personal demon on her shoulder. This, coupled with her psychic abilities, makes her a valuable weapon for any demon mob-like “family” lucky enough to gain her allegiance. It also makes her a serious threat not just to the personal demons, but to a soul-sucking Legion of Hell known as The Accuser. The Accuser already has an old score to settle with Megan, and sees this as the perfect time to do it.
Pleasure of a Dark Prince (Immortals After Dark, Book 7)
This was another very fun read that adds to the series perfectly. The author is extremely consistent in her writing style, the “feel” of the characters, the humor and the incredible passion between the main characters, which I love. I remember when this book first came out, it was getting rave reviews from my fellow Twitterers. While I did enjoy it, it fell *a little* flat for me towards the end. Unfortunately, when that happens, I always wonder if it was my own environment that pulled me out of a book’s intensity (ie: busy schedule, constant interruptions etc…). This may be the case, in this instance, because overall, when I think back, the book was good!
