I am working on a paranormal romance series titled the Immortal Savior Series. Book 1 Vengeance was released March 13, 2015. It’s available in ebook format on most vendor sites. Paperback will be available in April. Book 2, Awakened is in the works and going well. I am also working on a novella featuring Shane and Layla.

When I’m not immersed in Liza’s destiny I love spending time with my husband and two young kids. In Northern Michigan our summers are short but beautiful. We try to make the most of it by camping and being outside.

Review of Red Queen By Victoria Aveyard

17878931

 

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?

Review of the Red Queen

Rating: 5 stars

This Review can be found at:

https://aoifesheri.wordpress.com/

To sum up the Red Queen I would say the hunger games meet Games of Throne.

Mare Barrow reminded me of Katniss living in the slums. She stole to survive and her family and best friend Kilcorn come first. But when Mare gets a job in the palace her powers are ignited and she’s brought into the world of Silvers. This is where the story reminded me of Games of throne. The lies deceit and the game the royals played were hard to keep up with and Mare is a pawn in the game, which she doesn’t even know she’s playing. She starts to fall for Marven her betrothed yet she still has feelings for Cal the future King. Her feelings make her judgement off and for it she pays the ultimate price.

The world building was breath-taking and the author’s ability to keep us blind to the truth was very well played out. I didn’t trust anyone and when I did I would second guess myself but I couldn’t have fully predicated who would betray mare.

The rebels add to the tension already in the story and I found my hands clammy in fear of certain rebels been found out, yet once again nothing could have prepared me for the ending

I look forward to Book two and mostly Cal. He’s strong, fierce and his loyalty to the crown is to be admired. He is a warrior, his abilities had me transfixed on him. Just loved him no matter where he stands in this war.

I would highly recommend this to all fantasy lovers.

And they are willing to trade her . . . for Pollen and her unborn baby.

Meanwhile, the Trinity will stop at nothing to enact vengeance on the residents of Ceborec for Pollen’s escape and the theft of classified documents. Lives will be lost. Hearts will be broken. A community will be destroyed.

How far will Pollen go to keep her family safe?

Welcome back to Hell’s Gates! The palpable sense of dread may seem familiar, but this time things are a bit…different. Fresher. Newer. As though just recently born…

See that squealing baby over there? He could grow up to be a lifesaving doctor (or perhaps the antichrist.) What about that scientist burning the midnight oil? He could be working on a bug zapper (or a doomsday device.) Did you catch that comet out of the corner of your eye? It might bring good luck (or an apocalyptic plague.)

Yes, every darkness has a source, every monster has a birthplace, and every evil has an origin. In the second volume of the #1 Bestselling AT HELL’S GATES series, twenty-three of the finest dark fiction authors working today will force you to witness the ORIGINS OF EVIL. Each unique tale of terror traces an unspeakable horror back to its very beginning.

All proceeds from this horror anthology series go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a charity benefiting military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. The authors and editors of this series are pleased to donate their time and effort to a truly worthy cause.

So sit back, relax, support a fine charity, and enjoy twenty-three tales of dawning calamity from some of horror fiction’s leading lights.

About the Author:

Curran Geist is the warped brain behind The Sity series. The inspiration for his books of extraterrestrial terror all began in the quaint town of Schwenksville, PA where he grew up. Curran often lived within books, and his vibrant imagination sucked him into nightmarish realms beyond the tiny town where he was raised.

For much of his life, Curran Geist has dedicated himself toward human rights work. He was honored to serve in AmeriCorps and also to work for Museum of Tolerance New York, Simon Wiesenthal Center, where he lead trainings to combat bigotry and discrimination. Human rights issues are still very important to Curran. In writing The Sity and Only the Cold Remains, Curran has merged his love of science fiction and horror genres with his belief in tackling social injustices. His novels paint a dystopian and post-apocalyptic landscape that mirrors many modern day social issues, including: the exploitation of children, sexual slavery, and cruelty towards animals.

Curran Geist is grateful to be a part of the At Hell’s Gate horror anthology series. All proceeds from these books support The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which helps wounded soldiers and their families.

Curran currently lives in New Jersey with his wife and newborn daughter.
