Between the Layers Blog Tour - Review

Between the Layers
by SaraJean Panek
Most fifteen year old girls are trying to figure out who they are; I’m trying to stay alive long enough to figure out what.

I’ve always been on the run. From my guilt about the things I couldn’t change, and from the voice in my head that won’t let me be normal. But yesterday Tommy and I were in a car accident on the way home from school. When I woke up, Tommy was gone, and so was the world I grew up in. Now I’m running less in a metaphorical way, and more in a “pick up the pace if you don’t want to die” way. Why? Because my eyes are blue, and I’m lost in a fantasy world where that means I’m different. It means I might not be human. It means I should already be extinct, and someone called “The Regent” is determined to make me that way.

I need to find the way home, and before I do that, I need to find Tommy. He’s only in this mess because of me. I can’t do it on my own, but it’s hard to know who to trust when everyone keeps trying to kill me.

My Review:
A wonderfully refreshing read!
We meet Sera, a 15yr old girl that hasn't had the easiest life. Walking home from school one afternoon her brothers friend Tommy pulls over to give her a lift. They were heading to see her dad at the cemetery, something she's been dreading. While in the car Sera's invisible friend Reeky pops into her head and gives her a warning. Lightning strikes the road ahead and they plummet into the river. No matter how hard they try they couldn't escape.
Next time Sera wakes up she's in a completely different world and the chaos really begins. She can't find Tommy anywhere.
From the first few pages I was drawn in. I loved that this story is different to what I've been reading, kept me even more intrigued. Panek has created a new world for us to explore, one where magic thrives through it's people, slavery is a major thing, blue eyed people have become extinct and evil rules.
I have to say I loved Sera, she was definitely your average 15yr old girl lol she has a very stubborn streak about her and does complain quite a bit but who could blame her for that really, with everything she goes through I'd probably be the same lol. Another of my faves was Trage, who we meet in the new world. He's just as stubborn as Sera, and he's not affraid to divulge his feelings about matters. I have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more from him (YAY!!). Another I found interesting was Dorian, he has a very mysterious quality about him and I look forward to seeing where his character goes.
I really enjoyed this story and I look forward to seeing whats installed for us next. I'd recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for something new and compelling to read. :-)

Darkness Possessed Blog Tour!

(An Order of the Blade Novel)
 by Stephanie Rowe

A fatal mistake stripped Zach Roderick of the powers that define him, leaving him a tormented shadow of the warrior he once was. Now, his teammate's life depends on Zach resurrecting the fire that once burned within him. As he undertakes a battle he has no way to win, he is derailed by a tempestuous beauty that awakens in him the dark desires that destroyed him once before.

The scars etched on Rhiannon Diaz's soul are so deep that she will never again be free. The once-powerful guardian is facing her last and greatest battle, and failure means a return to a sexual enslavement that is far worse than death. Her intense and passionate need for the powerful warrior who has vowed to protect her threatens the very foundation of her survival, but his refusal to abandon her drags them both into a world where wild, untamed passion rages, and surrender is their only chance.

All books in the Order of the Blade series are intended to be standalones that can be read in any order. The chronological reading order, however, is as follows: DARKNESS AWAKENED, DARKNESS SEDUCED, DARKNESS SURRENDERED, FOREVER IN DARKNESS, DARKNESS REBORN, DARKNESS ARISEN, DARKNESS UNLEASHED, INFERNO OF DARKNESS, DARKNESS POSSESSED (Available July 2014).

My Review:
My goodness, where do I start?
AH-MAZ-ING!!!! Wanda Wiltshire has delivered another riveting installment to the Betrothed series. Just like Betrothed I was left wanting more.

Being a huge fan of Betrothed I was absolutely over the moon when I received Allegiance for review. It was so easy to slip back into this amazing world Wanda has created. I greeted the characters like old friends and fell in love with them and Faera all over again.
Marla is back home with her family on earth and is suffering a great depression being separated from Leif. After weeks of laying in bed crying, Marla receives a letter from Leif, a letter that would lift her depression and help her move on with her life. Poor Marla, I could really feel her heart breaking in two and I shed a few tears for her.
Since reading the letter Marla feels like her old self, she's back to school, hanging with her friends, and realises that her feelings for Jack have gotten stronger, things start to heat up between them. But things can't stay like this forever and Leif returns to claim what is rightfully his. Leif whisks Marla back to Faera where she belongs, he strikes up a bargain with his father to allow Marla Allegiance.
So much is happening in Faera, more Fae are disappearing and the Shadow Fae are to blame.
Things between Leif and Marla really heat up the pages, I swear you could see them start to smoke.
With a gripping storyline, a few twists and turns to keep you on edge and a few new characters to love, one in particular you love to hate lol. By the end you're left wanting more. Faera is a place you never want to leave.
I look forward to book three "Confused" and seeing where Wanda will take us next. :-)

**COVER REVEAL** Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand

 by Heather Hildenbrand
New Adult, Paranormal Fantasy

The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned, love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms. 
Now, after five months at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer. A time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do. So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Point, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic stares or drunken class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuffed not with identification but with poetry illustrating the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I will not leave this boy’s side. 
Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet…
