Happy Release Day to Devri Walls!!!
Venators: Through the Arch (Book 1)
YA Fantasy October 11, 2016

About the Book: Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.

Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.

By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.

Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council.

About the Author: Devri Walls is the best-selling author of six YA fantasy novels. She is a theater major with a flare for the dramatic and wishes more than anything for a magic wand. Devri is from Boise Idaho where she lives with her husband, two kids and the cutest mutt of a dog the world has ever seen. When she’s not writing she can be found teaching voice lessons, trying to resist the urge to sell her two beautiful children to the circus, and cooking. Because…. food. Mmmmmmm.

NEW REVIEW -- Beyond Redemption by Lady J

“He thought that maybe if he laid down beside them long enough, God would take him, too. Giddeon was scared and didn’t want to be all alone. What if those monsters came back for him? Giddeon crawled under the worn, faded blanket and laid down between both his parents. He desperately wanted his mother to wrap him up in her protective arms and tell him everything would be okay. He snuggled next to her cold, hard side and wrapped his trembling arms around her. I love you, Mommy. But, he knew nothing would be okay. Not after that day. Not ever again.”

Love. Fear. Envy. Pain. Joy. Rage…these emotions run rampant through this story. Book two is a darker novel, primarily surrounding Giddeon and his life up until his breaking point…where he has to make that final decision of what life truly means to him. By delving into his past and making Giddeon relive the painful memories that have haunted him for years, Lady J provides her readers with a tenacious story that is chalked full of physiological hardships, compulsive rage and dangerous secrets—all pointing to one man who has been there all along, controlling his every move. There are quite a few main characters that deserve to be mentioned…Dalton, Giddeon, Behr, Ellora, Gavin, Adelle and Dominick. As this story progresses, their storylines interweave together—outlining their friendships, their hatred, their disillusions and their desire to protect what they love.

Dalton is pure evil, manipulative, deceitful and completely psychotic. Lady J has a way of digging her claws into the situation and grabbing hold of the reader with his deplorable acts. Dalton and Giddeon share a past, a dark and spiteful past that only one can truly be ashamed of. Giddeon takes his past and twists it so badly that he can’t seem to find the right path among so much pain and emotional imbalance—he allows his beast or inner demons to control his emotions to the point of combustion. After the attack on Ellora, Giddeon and Dominick make a pact to avenge his parents by bringing the one person that has started everything…down. Whereas Dominick wants life imprisonment for the bastard, Giddeon wants revenge—the blood of his parent’s attackers, streaming down his arms as he guts the life out of them. Behr, Ellora, Gavin and Adelle play backseat roles in this novel, but their situations or no less important than the other characters…especially once Dalton finds the perfect moment to strike.

The author does a superb job with character development and credibility. There is so much suspense and trepidation that will leave the reader on the edge of their seat. The darker side of this book really makes the reader think about who the victim actually is. Past deeds are forgotten, new relationships are formed; hope can be found in the eyes of a killer. Lady J makes an impact with this second installment in the Marked Series. If you are a reader of psychological suspense and crime, you may find this to your liking.

A free copy was exchanged for an honest review of this fictional piece.

Volume I (The Dragon Ruby Series) by Leilani Love

Volume One contains the first two installments in the Dragon Ruby Series, Violca's Dragon and The King's Fire.

Book One:
Violca Grey knows life can change instantly. Two years after her parents’ sudden death, Violca is left raising her four younger sisters. She doesn’t realize that their lives are all in danger from something that may not be human.

Chase Reed knows the Grey sisters possibly hold the key to his fate. He is determined to get close, protect them and bring them to his Dragon King.

Together, Chase and Violca not only have to protect their families—they also have to fight against their rising feelings for each other. But what Violca doesn't know is that once a dragon decides he wants something, there is no stopping him from getting it.

Book Two:
The moment Aithne’s mother told her that her sister had been captured by the infamous Vampire, King Lazzaro—she should have known it was a trap.

In order to get her sister back, she is given one simple, but dangerous task. She has to capture a dragon-shifter and bring him back to the King. It should be easy, a simple exchange—her sister’s life for that of a dragon. Nothing is ever what it seems and soon she finds herself drawn to the very people that she may be forced to betray.

As King of the Dragons, Viktor’s one true goal is to keep his people safe. His old friend Chase has become the first dragon-shifter in centuries to find his mate. His people are finally starting to have hope that balance can be restored with the newfound Earth witch sisters. Keeping them close, he finds himself intrigued when they begin a friendship with a beautiful and mysterious new redhead.

NEW REVIEW -- Eye of Fear Anthology

Experimental by Lauren Algeo – Algeo lures her readers into a suspenseful short story that both captivates and draws wonder to all four of her characters. There is a variation of one question that is really prevalent throughout the entire read—why were they selected for imprisonment? What did they do to deserve this punishment? This author does a fantastic job with character development and has a well-written story that seems like it will continue into a potential full-length novel in the future. If you are a reader of psychological suspense, you may find this to your liking. While reading, you may find major similarities between this short story and the major motion picture, SAW.

The First Step by Marisa Oldham & Angie Martin – This short story is slightly predictable, but by no means lacking in suspense. After suffering over a major psychological and horrifying event that caused her extreme fear and anxiety, her trust in others has been completely shot. Four years of being locked away with locks, bolts and bars across every window, she has imprisoned herself within the safety of her home. Both authors create an intrepid and eerie story that is well-written, but may not be extended into a full-length novel at a later time. If you are a reader of psychological suspense, this may be perfect for you.

A Mind’s Undoing by Sloane Kady – Kady also has a predictable short story, yet it remains captivating and alarmingly psychological throughout. Kate’s fear is losing her family, but after the confirmation to her friend that she has stopped taking her medication—things fall into place quite quickly. This author does a fantastic job with character development and has a well-written story, but may not be extended into a full-length novel at a later time. If you are a reader of psychological fiction, you may find this to your liking.

Mark of Deceit by Glede Brown Kabongo – Kabongo has a wonderful way of inviting her readers into the world of suspense with her well-written stories and creativity. This author walks with her character, Natalie, through every possible avenue of danger after an unwelcome visitor provides documentation of fraud allegations and deceit that have been swept right under her nose for years. She is forced to look over her shoulder constantly and those that she cares about may be in imminent danger if others are watching her. Ultimately not knowing who Natalie can trust, this provides a great psychological read that will leave you wanting to read more.

Unreal by Shay Lynam – This short story is highly creative and psychologically riveting. Lynam delves right into the fire with her world of technological advances. This story encompasses psychological suspense and science fiction by creating equipment that can help you work through your worst fears. As this author takes her three characters through their worst nightmares, there is a bond formed between the three teenagers solely in spite of their fear. Lynam does a superb job with character development and has a well-written story that seems like it will continue into a potential full-length novel in the future.

Jezebel’s Embrace by Heather Osborne – Osborne takes her readers into the house of an abuser. This story is creative and well-written; however, there is a lapse in character development and pace, more than likely due to it being a short story instead of a full-length novel. After Lilith leaves her small southern town to attend college, with the help of a kind woman—she thinks that the fear is over. When the woman who helped her escape is found dead after a few years, she is drawn back to that town and the freedom that she once felt has been replaced with that same fear that had taken over her as a child. If you are a reader of psychological suspense, this may be perfect for you.

Heaven’s Hell by Sandy Richards – Richards’ short story is a bit predictable as well, but the psychological suspense is enticing and captivating all the same. Ernie has had a tough life, the life of an abused teenager. With her family being highly religious, she wouldn’t have suspected that the most evil and vile of them all would be so close to her. After suffering from the abuse for so long, her resolve was a simple one—revenge. Becoming a vigilante of sorts, is what she deemed herself. Ernie was the town’s protector against vile people like her abuser—except, the world doesn’t always work the way you want it to. One mistake, one mishap—and it could all come crashing down in one fearful and terrifying moment of vulnerability. Richards does a superb job with character development and has a well-written story that will leave the reader wanting more.

Touch of the Untouchables by Jalpa Williby – Williby has a wonderful story that lures the reader into this little suspenseful adventure. Zak’s brother is the daredevil and Zak—well, he is just the one who has to follow along and make sure that his brother doesn’t get himself in trouble. Against orders, they travel beyond the wall and into the forest where danger is sure to await. After a run in with a band of Untouchables, Zak is hurt and unable to help his brother get back home safely. Leaving Zak on his own to go find help from inside the wall, his brother darts away quickly—but what they don’t know is that there is always someone watching and waiting to pounce. Williby does a fantastic job with character development and has a well-written story, but may not be extended into a full-length novel at a later time. If you are a reader of psychological suspense with a little adventure, you may find this to your liking.
