Description:

A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

Feature Tour: The Fate Series by Heather Lyons

fate_banner

I couldn’t have been more excited when asked to feature one of my favorite book series on my blog. This series is the one that I always come back to. It made me fall in love with the written word and is still the only love triangle that I can read. As part of this blog tour, I was asked a question. I was asked: If you had a power like Chloe, tell us what that “power” would be and how you would use it. For some the answer might be simple, but for me, I know just what an adjustment having a power like Chloe could be. I appreciate and understand the pressure that she felt. So, after thinking long and hard about it, I decided that if I did have a power like Chloe, I would love to be a Healer. I feel like a healer would have a very important role, especially in the fate series. I love helping others and knowing that I’ve made a difference and impact on others. So, for me, I think that would be a great fit……

FATE SERIES BY HEATHER LYONS

A MATTER OF FATE – EXCERPT 1

chapter 1

I am a chronic daydreamer.

Not so much because school bores me—in fact, a number of my classes are pretty interesting. No, I tend to daydream about escape routes. Places to run to when the inevitable, predetermined outcomes of my rigid life leave me no other choice. If it’s possible, even in the tiniest way, just how would I break away from what Fate and family has set before me?

Florence is currently my favorite spot to imagine disappearing in. It’s a city of impossible beauty and history, one I’ve longed to explore. Maybe I’d become an artist there— not that I’m artistic by any means, but maybe I’d be inspired to be something new. Different.

There’s also the possibility of New England. My parents took me there once when I was little, the only time I’ve ever been outside of California. My father went for work, and while he was busy, my mother drove me to a number of little towns running up and down the coastline. One particular small city in New Hampshire is rooted in my memory, where flowers practically raced in bursts of color straight to the ocean’s edge. It was incredibly charming, the perfect sort of place to go and be someone—anyone, really—who isn’t me.

Are you kidding? snorts a little voice in the back of my mind. C’mon, why pick these places, when there is a much better place for you, and you know it?

Inwardly, I groan at the thought. My conscience has always been far too opinionated.

I move on, wondering what sheer anonymity would be like—to simply be a girl in a nondescript place, serving pancakes and mugs of coffee to weary travelers on long journeys. The land would be flat and golden as far as the eye could see, and driving through it, with the windows down, I’d be able to smell sweet grass in warm air.

And there’s the far north, where the Northern Lights illuminate the sky. I’d be speechless upon seeing them for the first time, standing in snow while gazing upon ribbons of color streaking across the stars. I wouldn’t have to be anyone there, either. I’d be just another person, in another small town, making my own choices.

I don’t bother looking up when the classroom door creaks open, because I’m still imagining those Northern Lights, still wondering how liberating it’d be to feel so small and insignificant for once. For as long as I want.

A voice breaks through, though. One impossible to ignore. “Excuse me,” it says, “I’m new to the class.”

My entire body freezes, all except my heart, which goes berserk. Because I know this voice, and this can’t be real.

He’s not real.

The ground under me shifts. It’s like an earthquake—not the rolling kind, but the jarring sort that comes out of nowhere, hits you hard, and then disappears just as quickly. The kind that leaves you stunned and wondering if it happened at all, it moved so fast. All I can do is reach out and grip the edges of my desk and pray I don’t fall out of my seat.

Because it’s not an earthquake. It’s a shift, and I’m the only one in the room who can feel it. A quick glance once the ground settles confirms this. Everyone is working, talking quietly to one another, or watching the front of the room. There are no signs from anyone that anything had just happened.

But something did.
And he’s standing in front of the classroom next to Mr. Snook.
I blink a few times as I stare at him, trying to determine if I’m

actually awake. Every time I open my eyes, though, he’s still here. Oh my gods. He’s here.

A MATTER OF FATE (Fate, #1)

amatteroffate

Chloe Lilywhite struggles with all the normal problems of a typical seventeen-year-old high school student. Only, Chloe isn’t a normal teenage girl. She’s a Magical, part of a secret race of beings who influence the universe. More importantly, she’s a Creator, which means Fate mapped out her destiny long ago, from her college choice, to where she will live, to even her job. While her friends and relatives relish their future roles, Chloe resents the lack of say in her life, especially when she learns she’s to be guarded against a vengeful group of beings bent on wiping out her kind. Their number one target? Chloe, of course.

That’s nothing compared to the boy trouble she’s gotten herself into. Because a guy she’s literally dreamed of and loved her entire life, one she never knew truly existed, shows up in her math class, and with him comes a twin brother she finds herself inexplicably drawn to.

Chloe’s once unyielding path now has a lot more choices than she ever thought possible.

BEYOND FATE (Fate #1.5)

beyondfate

There are always two sides to every story . . .

His whole life, Jonah Whitecomb has strove to meet everyone’s expectations of him: the perfect student, dutiful son, loyal twin, accomplished surfer, and powerful Magical. But behind his carefully composed façade hides the truth of how his family has fallen apart, leaving Jonah more often than not feeling adrift. To complicate matters, he fell in love long ago with a girl in his dreams, one he’s never told anyone about, including his twin brother.

Just when life seems its bleakest, Jonah discovers that Chloe is real. Wanting to finally reach out and grab happiness for himself, he embarks on a journey to track down the girl of his dreams, only to find that happy endings aren’t always guaranteed, the best laid out plans can go horribly awry, and sometimes, you have to simply let yourself go along for the ride.

✿ A MATTER OF HEART (Fate, #2)

amatterofheart

No longer in high school, Chloe Lilywhite is now living and working in Annar, the Magicals’ city-state plane of existence. Since moving, she’s joined the Council, gone on missions with the Guard, moved into her own apartment, and enrolled at the University of Annar. Plus, she’s happily engaged to be married to Jonah Whitecomb, the literal man from her dreams, not to mention her Connection. While she still struggles with aspects of her craft, Chloe feels like she’s finally coming into her own, especially after a difficult year that had her questioning nearly everything in her life.

After a brutal attack by the Elders, her life is turned upside down once more. Accusations fly throughout the Council and Guard, forcing Chloe to confront her worst fears about what’s she’s capable of as a Creator. And then there’s the matter of Kellan Whitecomb, Jonah’s twin brother and Chloe’s ex, who resurfaces after disappearing months before. Although Chloe chose Jonah, and despite their best efforts, the two find it hard to stay away from one another.

But no matter what Fate throws at her, Chloe is determined to take charge of her life, even as it begins to spiral out of control.

✿ A MATTER OF TRUTH (Fate, #3)

amatteroftruth

Not long ago, Chloe Lilywhite seemingly had it all: a prized spot on the Magicals’ Council as lead Creator, a loving fiancé and Connection, and a wealth of good friends. But the poised young woman she projected was nothing more than a façade. Her parents all but disowned her. Power plays and accusations of murder within the Council rocked her confidence. And most difficult of all, her secret, a secondary Connection to Jonah’s twin brother, Kellan, became painfully impossible to resist. Desperate to gain control over her rapidly unraveling existence, Chloe did the unthinkable: she ran away.

Now living and working in Alaska under an alias, Chloe is slowly discovering who she is and, more importantly, who she wants to be. But the more she tries to leave the Magical world behind, the harder it becomes to stay hidden. The Elders are back with a vengeance, and the stakes have never been higher. Chloe finally has to make a choice: embrace her pre-ordained Fate or pave her own way in the worlds. One thing’s for sure, though—she’s finally up for the challenge.

✿ A MATTER OF FOREVER (Fate, #4)

amatterofforever

It all comes down to this . . .

Chloe Lilywhite has struggled for years to find her footing in a series of dangerous and demanding worlds. Creator, first tier Council member, and one of the most powerful Magicals in existence, she was little more than one of Fate’s pawns. But now, Chloe is back home and ready to call the shots. She knows what she wants and who she wants to be.

Except the Elders never got the memo.

Annar and Magical-kind are under attack. The lives of Chloe’s loved ones, and life as they know it, are at stake. Chloe’s the key to taking the Elders down, but they won’t go quietly into the night.

This time, neither will Chloe.

Review and Promo Tour: Lucian Divine by Renee Carlino

luciandivine-fb-banner-now

luciandivine_03-1-1-1“My guardian angel is a drunk.”
Evelyn Casey’s life is at a standstill. She’s in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It’s absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.
And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he’s a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he’s brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he’s brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as —-. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.
For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.
Yes, God as in God.

My Review

When I first heard about Lucian Divine, I was so captivated by the cover. It intrigued me and the synopsis made me want to know more…..

Lucian Divine is so different from the other books that I’ve read by this author. It’s a contemporary romance with a sort of paranormal twist. I loved that this author was brave and took a risk writing something that was out of her norm. I enjoyed the story-line and have to admit that I am quite the fan of angel type stories. Lucian Divine is a fun and unique story. The writing is smart and really makes you think.

I adored Lucian and fell in love with almost instantly. I thought that he was quite easy to connect with and I appreciated his struggles. I was curious to see how everything would play out with Evey. I thought Evey was a lot of fun and I couldn’t wait for her to meet Mr. Right. I loved her reaction to Lucian and the connection that they shared. Their banter was entertaining and kept me coming back for more. And I totally loved the forbidden aspect to their relationship.

Overall, I thought this book was a pretty good read. I loved the characters, their story and their journey. My only complaint was that I felt that there were a few elements of the story that were rushed and didn’t quite work for me. And those issues are what is keeping me from giving this book four stars. That being said,  I am really glad that I checked out this book and went on this journey with Lucian and Evey.

My Review

“I want freedom. I want the right to live the way I want to live. I’m tired of hiding.”

Wow! Wow! Wow! Alyssa Rose Ivy has totally knocked it out of the park with this one!!! Now, it’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy’s paranormal romances, so when I found out that she was writing a dystopian novel, I just knew I had to read it! And boy, does she not disappoint!!

Corded is the first book in an exciting new series from Alyssa Rose Ivy. Corded is unlike anything that we’ve ever seen from this author before. Told from dual points of view, Corded follows the story of Kayla and Mason. Kayla has lived her entire life in hiding. She lives in a society where being a woman is a not only rare, but also a crime. People will stop at nothing to get their hands on a woman. Everyday that Kayla is alive, is a dangerous one. If Kayla thought being hidden from society was tough, she was in for a tough surprise. When Kayla and her sister are kidnapped, her entire world will be turned upside down. Kayla will stop at nothing to save and free her sister. There is no price too high. Kayla will go and do things that she never expected to save her family, even seeking help from a dangerous club and its leader, Mason. Just how far will Kayla go to save her sister??? There is only one way to find out…

Corded was a thrilling and entertaining read. I was pulled in from the very first page and easily got lost in this dystopian world that Alyssa Rose Ivy created. It was so unique and so refreshing.

Mason was a really special treat. I’m not gonna lie, I was totally on the fence about him in the beginning and I totally questioned his intentions over the course of the story. But, in the end, he totally won me over. So, when you meet Mason, don’t discount him.

There is so much more to Corded than meets the eye. The setting and story-line are amazing. I loved the theme of family, of how important it was and just how rare and special women were. I loved seeing some light and sweet moments in a dark and harsh world. This story is definitely darker than what we normally see from this author and while the world she created may have been a harsh one, it is definitely one that will keep you on your toes and quickly turning the pages.

Corded is a fast paced and exciting read. This story is incredibly well written and thrilling. I think that the author was incredibly brave taking on the dystopian genre. It is something totally different from her and I am so excited to see where she is going to take our characters and their story next. And I promise you, after Corded, you are going to be begging the author to get Book 2 in your hands, asap!

Review: The Lost Codex by Heather Lyons

thelostcodex

Allies, once inseparable, splinter until they break apart.
An insidiousness carves its way through Wonderland, challenging the land’s very existence.
Battle lines will be drawn as pages, long languishing in darkness, are finally illuminated.
Swords will clash, blood will be spilled, and lives will be lost.
For what is written can still be erased.

My Review

“We are not bound by prophecies, but by choice.”

“His love is so visceral, it marks my skin.”

“Hearts are not solid, not really. They are mosaics, cobbled together from pieces we take from life and others. Sometimes, certain pieces fall away. Sometimes, we fill them in with new bits of emotions and life. Sometimes, what is there remains, even if the people we took them from are no longer with us. You see, some pieces are more steadfast than others. Those are the ones that will remain the longest. I am in your heart. You were in mine.”

The Lost Codex was everything that I wanted and more. Join Finn, Alice and friends for an epic journey and most anticipated finale. Battle lines will be drawn, truths will be uncovered and all your questions will be answered….

Now, I’m gonna be honest, I was scared when I picked up this book. The bar was set high and I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to my beloved characters. That being said, when I started reading, all my fears were laid to rest as I was swept away in latest tale from Heather Lyons.

The Lost Codex is fast paced and incredibly well written. The story-line is incredibly imaginative and you can’t help but find yourself lost in the world and characters that Heather Lyons has created. Heather Lyons has not only provided us with a brilliant and exciting adventure, but her writing will slay you from page one. It is lyrical and spellbinding. This story will have you swooning one minute and holding your breath in the very next.

What Heather Lyons has created in The Lost Codex is one epic adventure. This is not your normal re-telling. No, this is an adventure of a lifetime. A story that transcends many timelines and provides you will an unforgettable romance.

There is just so much to love about this story. From a creative and thrilling story-line, to characters we all know and love. To twists that will keep us guessing and truths that will blow your mind. All that is left to say is be ready. Be ready for a most epic adventure and fantastical journey…..
