Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 9/29/19

 

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

Hey, all.  Got a book done this week, so I’m feeling good about that.  There are some really good releases coming up which I’m excited about.

  • I think this series is a super series…super but *deep breath* a roller coaster ride.  Ms. Bateman really knows how to capture an audience.

Title: Dark of the Moon
Author: Sonja Bateman
Series: The DeathSpeaker Codex #9
Release date: September 23, 2019
Description: On the bright side, if this didn’t work, I’d be too dead to worry about forgiveness.

Heartbroken and furious on the heels of a devastating loss, Gideon Black heads to the Fae realm of Arcadia, reluctantly bringing along a pair of old friends who’ve sworn to help him even after he insists that he’s going alone. Because what he’s planning to do there has a high risk of deadly failure.

His self-appointed mission: to face down a god, and to restore a life that was stolen from him.

To bring someone back from the dead.

But nothing is simple when it comes to the gods of the Fae. The DeathSpeaker soon finds himself battling his way across the realm in search of the ancient keys, lost to the ravages of time, that will enable him to enter eternity and come back alive.

And through it all, the greatest challenge lies in what should be the simplest task: convincing the object of his quest that he’s worth saving.

  • Speaking about capturing an audience.  Jenn Stark is the QUEEN!  I love her Sara Wilde books and now her spin off series, Wilde Justice explores the exploits of the Arcane Council.

Title:  The Shadow CourtAuthor: Jenn Stark
Series: Wilde Justice #4
Release date: September 30, 2019
Description: Don’t you forget about me…

She’s a Tarot-reading artifact hunter finally willing to own her supernatural abilities. He’s the all-powerful Magician of the Arcana Council who once loved her…but now doesn’t remember her, the result of a battle to defeat a terrifying enemy.

Isolated and alone, Sara must race time to help the Magician uncover his ancient knowledge, but can she live with what she finds? Will his dark past destroy them both?

Worse, a rival council, known only as the Shadow Court, has emerged to wage battle against the Arcana Council. And if Sara can’t help the Magician recall how to combat this insidious, mind-bending threat, the world will descend into devastating war.

Love could be your last, best weapon when you confront The Shadow Court.

  • This type of book is not the kind I usually submit for review, but I stumbled onto this series and it looks delicious.  The next book is being released tomorrow, so it gives no time to read #1 or #2.  I read the descriptions and it looks like each book is sort of standalone so…I think this release might call for reading out of order.  It looks too good to pass up.  Besides, I might be on the track of something new to me and exciting!

Title:  Dark Ambitions
Author: Irene Hannon
Series: Code of Honor #3
Release date:  October 1, 2019
Description: Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently–leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn’t convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn’t want them to succeed–and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth.

With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.

Book Spotlight on Jenn Stark’s new Wilde Justice addition!

One Book Two is spotlighting author Jenn Stark and her new release in the Wilde Justice series!

Jenn has been busy writing and she has released book #3 in the Wilde Justice series.

As the first Justice of the Arcana Council in two hundred years, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde is tasked with taking out the most dangerous magic-wielding criminals on the planet.

 

Title:  The Hallowed Knight
Author: Jenn Stark
SeriesWilde Justice #3
Release date:  May 29, 2019
Description: The world is full of magical things…

With a day job that requires her to hunt down psychics who use their metaphysical gifts as weapons, Tarot-reading Justice of the Arcana Council Sara Wilde has no time for fairy tales. So when her newest case pleads for her assistance against brownies, sprites, and pixie dust, she’s more than ready to file it under “not a chance.”

But these Neo-Celts mean business, with a boldly charismatic leader who vows to return the world to the iron-fisted rule of the ancient gods. That plan infuriates the fiercest member of the Arcana Council, Death, whose deep Irish roots hide more secrets than Sara ever realized, and draws the focus of the dark-eyed, seductive Magician, deftly weaving his ever more twisted schemes.

At the Council’s behest, Sara plunges headlong into Irish folklore, fantasy, and the very real, very frightening truth of the spaces between worlds, where the darkest memories go to hide… Memories that could upend everything Sara’s finally claimed as her own.

Travelers beware! The fairies will all come out to play when you chase The Hallowed Knight.

Demon Bewitched by Jenn Stark

Witches.  They are not nice.  They have their covens and they summon demons to play with them like a cat plays with a mouse.  Now, a witch has to marry a demon.  How’s that going to go for them?

Title:  Demon Bewitched
Author: Jenn Stark
Series: Demon Enforcers #3
Publish Date:  March 19, 2019
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Source:  purchased by reviewer

Publisher’s Description:  You say witch like it’s a bad thing…

Former fallen angel, current smokin’ hot enforcer, and all-around demon most likely to get the girl, Stefan of the Syx knows women better than they know themselves. He should, because once upon a time, one of them caused his brutal damnation.

All these millennia later, however, Stefan still can’t resist a pretty smile. So when he learns his chance at redemption entails pairing up with a gorgeous redheaded spitfire, he’s ready to rock—until the other pitchfork drops. Because the bold, impulsive Cressida Frain’s not only a woman, she’s a witch. And a hookup between witches and demons is one of the few hard stops in Stefan’s book of Go.

Unfortunately, this is one offer Stefan can’t refuse. To keep her new position as high priestess for her coven, Cressida must lead her people in an ultimate showdown against evil. To help her succeed, Stefan must allow Cressida to take him, break him and bind him to her—body and soul. But neither of them are prepared for what happens next…

It’s out of the cauldron and into the fire when you’re a Demon Bewitched.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

Demon Enforcers are spread pretty thin in this world built by Jenn Stark.  They have to keep the demons in line or destroy them.  The Demon Enforcers are those that agree to become an enforcer for a chance to be redeemed.  The redemption is held in Archangel Michael’s hands and he makes them work thousands of years to get it.

The heroine in this story was stupid.  Okay, she gets a break because she’s young and has no experience, but she was played, man.  Stefan is ordered to deal with Cressida’s situation and he does his best.  The plot was fairly obvious right out of the chute, but the plot wasn’t supposed to be secret from us readers, it was supposed to be secret to the female heroine protagonist.  She fell hook, line and sinker.

There was one brief cameo from the world famous Sara Wilde, which made me all giddy.  How Stefan and Cressida made it through to the end, I have no idea.  It was all pretty touch and go.  Demons with big plans, witches with big plans and Michael with the biggest plan of them all.

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

Release date: April 17, 2019
Description: Wherever Dax Knight sets foot, hell is bound to freeze over.

As a mercenary for the Order of the Senary, Dax departs for New England to assist his comrades in battling the vampire forces threatening to consume the Northeast.

Cindel Konstantinov has been on the run since she escaped her sire’s possession, trading one life of abuse and imprisonment for another. As her hope for freedom wanes, she encounters one of the infamous Knights, and his dangerous appeal is undeniable. After a life-altering moment of mercy, they careen down a path of secrets, lies, and a forbidden passion neither of them can resist. But when her past comes back to haunt them, they’ll have to face the consequences of their actions—and their desires.

Dax and Cindel will need each other more than ever as their world spirals into chaos. But are they strong enough to survive the oncoming storm?

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 12/9/18

 

Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip.  Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.

Back with new releases again… they keep writin’ them, we keep readin’ them.

You know how much I love Jenn Stark’s books.  If you don’t know, then I’m telling you that I loooooove Jenn Stark’s books.

I have every one of them and I love how she can weave together a story.  She released a new book in October.  I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my list.  Check it out.

The Red KingTitle:  The Red King
Author: Jenn Stark
Series:  Wilde Justice #1
Release date: October 10, 2018
Description:  New world order, new job, new mission.

As the first Justice of the Arcana Council in two hundred years, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde is tasked with taking out the most dangerous magic-wielding criminals on the planet. Her first assignment? A killer known only as the Red King, who’s systematically picking off the world’s most gifted magicians in the rollicking streets and storied canals of Venice, Italy, on the eve of Carnevale.

Amidst the festival’s music, masks, and brightly colored costumes, Sara must unravel the truth about a brutal murderer from Venice’s own murky past, navigate the twisting political currents of magicians who seek to rival her own Council, and keep one costume change ahead of a conjurer whose lethal spells could end Justice–permanently. Good thing the diabolically sexy and deeply powerful Magician of the Arcana Council has Sara’s back…if only he didn’t hold so much of her heart as well.

The canals of Venice will run with blood when you deal in The Red King.

 

Title:  The Lost QueenThe Lost queen
Author: Jenn Stark
Series:  Wilde Justice #2
Release date: December 27, 2018
Description:  Not all who wander are lost. 

As Justice of the Arcana Council and an experienced artifact hunter, Tarot-reading Sara Wilde prefers to track down the missing on her own. With her latest case, unfortunately, everyone’s dying to help her out.

Determined to locate the Lost Queen, a witch destined to fulfill a dark and twisted prophecy, Sara finds herself corpse-blocked at every turn. Not even the electric, provocative, and deeply powerful Magician of the Arcana Council–whose newest arcane pursuits test Sara’s emotional and sensual boundaries–can help her find her mark.

Worse, Sara isn’t the only hunter on the case. From the shadowy labyrinths of Budapest to the ancient churches of Moscow to the glittering lights of Los Angeles, the world’s most powerful male witches are gunning for the Lost Queen, demanding her as their rightful consort. Right before they end up dead, each more gruesomely than the last. There’s definitely a pattern here…and one Sara needs to break, before her own mercurial Magician becomes the prophecy’s next target.

Better hope you don’t find what you’re looking for when you hunt The Lost Queen.
