We’ve already got THREE more books to look forward to (after Sundown’s) in the Dark Hunter series! YAY!!! (Thanks Christy for the heads-up!!)
About the series:
In a world of magic and betrayal, one king rose to unite a land divided and to bring unto his people a time of unprecedented peace. A time when might no longer made right. When one man with a dream created a world of chivalry and honor.
Guided by his Merlin, this man’s destiny was to be the Pendragon– High King of Power. But Arthur was a man who had many enemies and none of them greater than his own sister Morgen. Queen of the Fey, she was ruled by her own jealousies and by her desire to rule as Pendragon in her brother’s stead.
Lots of awesome author news and goodies to come! Oh and guess who I saw today!? Well not really “saw” in person, but on a movie. Leanna Renee Hieber as a “Bed Bath and Beyond” employee in the movie “The Other Guys” with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg! Too cool 🙂
- Allyson James working on (and awaiting approval for): Tales of the Shareem: Braden (and if that goes well, next book will be Justin’s). She let’s us know that her upcoming book (in June 2011) “Shadowalker” will bring back Janet and Mick (“Janet and Mick are back and badder than ever”). She also informs us that Stormwalker (Stormwalker Series, Book 1) has been nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award in Urban Fantasy. Woo hoo!”. Congratulations Allyson!!
- Stacia Kane’s “City of Ghosts (Downside Ghosts, Book 3)” has been nominated for an award at Goodreads (or maybe it’s two awards)!! Also regarding the next in the Downside series:
I am also re-reading the enormous doorstop I just wrote and am actually kind of enjoying it; I think I have some ideas where to tighten it up and yeah, there will be a nice selection of deleted scenes for the website after this book comes out. (Which no, I do not have a date yet, sorry, I’ll tell you as soon as I do.) (Same with the title.)
No Mercy (Dark-Hunter)
This installment in the Dark-Hunter series (sent to me by the publisher) was entertaining enough, but unfortunately not one of my favorites. While it was action packed (practically non stop from the start) I found myself almost winded with the main character’s constant struggle to stay alive. The romantic angle was nice, but there were many missed opportunities where personal moments could have been expanded upon. Deep and personal conversations, revelations, and quiet moments (as there have been in past books in the series) might have helped me “feel” the characters more, and believe their connection. It almost seemed like the majority of the heartwarming or sad moments happened when the main characters were apart. Despite that, they managed to fall in love anyway, so…that’s good 😉
Infinity: Chronicles of Nick
I’ll admit, the moment I started reading this and realized the main character “Nick Gautier” was only fourteen, I was apprehensive. We’ve come to know him as one of Kenyon’s crush-worthy adult characters from her “Dark-Hunter” series, and while I knew this story was about Nick as a teen, coming into the Dark-Hunter world, I didn’t realize just how young he’d be. Don’t get me wrong, I love YA novels (young adult novels) and many have proven to be completely absorbing and powerfully addictive (Twilight, Vampire Academy, etc…). In past YA series that I have reviewed, we were essentially dealing with older teens on the cusp of adulthood and let’s be honest, there is a BIG difference between 14 year olds and 17 year olds.
