(from back cover) ” His name is Dante. Dark. Talented. Beautiful. Star of the rock band Inferno. Rumored owner of the hot New Orleans nightspot Club Hell. Born of the Blood, then broken by an evil beyond imagination.

His past is a mystery. F.B.I. Special Agent Heather Wallace has been tracking a sadistic serial murderer known as the Cross Country Killer, and the trail has led her to New Orleans, Club Hell, and Dante. But the dangerously attractive musician not only resists her investigation, he claims to be “nightkind”; in other words, a vampire. Digging into his past for answers reveals little. A juvenile record a mile long. No social security number. No known birth date. In and out of foster homes for most of his life before being taken in by a man named Lucien DeNoir, who appears to guard mysteries of his own.

His future is chaos. What Heather does know about Dante is that something links him to the killer – and she’s pretty sure that link makes him the CCK’s next target. Heather must unravel the truth about this sensual, complicated, vulnerable young man – who, she begins to believe. may indeed be a vampire – in order to finally bring a killer to justice. But Dante’s past holds a shocking, dangerous secret, and once it is revealed not even Heather will be able to protect him from his destiny…”

WOW. Just when you thought that nobody could come up with a new take on vampires, this author comes along and blows my mind! I loved this book, the characters, the storyline, and I am anxiously awaiting another novel about Dante, Heather and Lucien. I am serious when I say RUN to get your copy of this book. I’m happy to say I own a copy because I will be re-reading this again and again. Bring on the Fallen, True Blood’s and Inferno! A Rush Of Wings gets

Magic Lost, Trouble Found – Spotlight & Review


Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin     Published: June 2007 by ACE Fantasy

Format:Mass Market Paperbound

Published:May 17, 2007

Dimensions:352 Pages

Published By:Berkley Mass Market

The following ISBNs are associated with this title:

ISBN – 13:9780441015054

(from back cover) “My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker. The people who hire me are usually happy when I find things. But some things are better left unfound…

Raine is a sorceress of moderate powers, from an extended family of smugglers and thieves. With a mix of street smarts and magic spells, she can usually take care of herself. But when her friend Quentin, a not-quite reformed thief, steals an amulet from the home of a powerful necromancer, Raine finds herself wrapped up in more trouble than she cares for. She likes attention as much as the next girl, but having an army of militant goblins hunting her down is not her idea of a good time. The amulet they’re after holds limitless power, derived from an ancient, soul-stealing stone. And when Raine takes possesion of the item, it takes possesion of her.

Now her moderate powers are increasing beyond anything she could imagine – but is the resume enhancement worth her soul?”

 I found this book to be a really pleasant surprise. I couldn’t put it down! It was in the fantasy section, and the author did a great job of pulling me into Raine’s world. Very believable, alot of action, intriguing plot, great smorgasbord of characters, and the author has a sense of humor which is always appreciated by me. Elves, Goblins, Magic & Mayhem. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next book in Raine Benares’s Mermeia. Magic Lost, Trouble Found gets

Dream Chaser Spotlight & Review


Dream Chaser by Sherrilyn Kenyon     Published: February 2008 by St Martin’s Paperbacks

Format:Mass Market Paperbound

Published:February 5, 2008

Dimensions:384 Pages

Published By:St. Martin’s Press

The following ISBNs are associated with this title:
ISBN – 10:
0312938829
ISBN – 13:9780312938826

(from back cover) “Hades doesn’t often give second chances… Xypher has one month on earth to redeem himself through one good deed, or be condemed to eternal torture in Tartarus. But redemption means little to a demigod who only wants vengence on the one who caused his downfall.

Until one day in a cemetary…Simone Dubois is a medical examiner with a real knack for the job. Those who are wrongfully killed appear to her and help her find the evidence the police need to convict their killers. But when a man appears and tells her that she’s more than just a psychic, she’s convinced he’s insane.

Now the fate of the world hangs in her hands… It was bad enough when just the dead relied on her. Now there’s the seductive Dream-Hunter Xypher who needs Simone’s help in opening a portal to the Atlantean hell realm to fight insatiable demons. The future of mankind is at stake – and so is her life. The only question now is: Who is the bigger threat? The demons out to kill her? Or the man who has left her forever changed?”

I read the whole book in 3 hours, which is no surprise because I own every book Sherrilyn Kenyon has written. She’s a permanent resident on my “Keeper” shelf. I bow down to this lady who has created the Dark Hunter/ Dream Hunter/ Were Hunter world. The only bad thing I can say about any of her books is the lull between them when I have to wait for the next one! I can also vouch that re-reading her novels a second or third time is just as enjoyable as the first time through. If you are at all a fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, immortal hotter than lava alpha males, weres, shape shifters, a wicked sense of humor, and you’ve been off the planet earth for a while and somehow haven’t come across her books, then I recommend running out and getting your hands on as many of them as you can! Stock up on the hot beverages and prepare to indulge because Kenyon’s books are as addicting as chocolate. Dream Chaser gets
