Night Rising – Spotlight & Review


night-risingNight Rising by Chris Marie Green

  • Paperback: 336 pages
  • Publisher: Ace (TRD); 1 edition ( Feb 6 2007 )
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0441014674
  • ISBN-13: 978-0441014675
  • From the Publisher

    “In this first book of an all-new trilogy, life proves stranger than the movies when a Hollywood underground coven of vampires comes to light and gets targeted by the tough-as-nails daughter of a sexy screen siren. Stuntwoman Dawn Madison hasn”t been on the best of terms with her father since her movie star mother died. Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting-caught on film-of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his odd colleagues, she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.”

     

    From Back Cover

     

    “Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with a lot of attitude. And a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world-famous movie star and sex symbol, whose untimely death left Dawn to be raised by her dad, Frank – nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year.

     

    Still, he is her dad. So when he vanishes while investigating the bizzare sighting of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him – only to discover an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.

     

    They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive….”

     

    I really like the unique alternate world-building and the completely believable but quirky characters that Chris Marie Green has created. A vivid look at what Tinseltown’s underground supernatural community could be like. Fast paced with a tough, smart female protagonist and truly scary antagonists make this an amazing read! Dawn Madison is sassy, real and multi-dimensional. I can’t wait to read more about her, Kiko, Breisi, Frank and the rest of the gang. Thrills, chills and a great paranormal mystery start this series off with a bang.  

     

    Chris Marie Green sent me a copy of this book a while back and I LOVED it! I apologize to Chris for taking so long to get to it. I will say that it took me a little while to get into the book, but once I did, I couldn’t put it down and am definitely ordering the rest of the books in this series. The Vampire Babylon books in order are: Night Rising, Midnight Reign, Break Of Dawn, A Drop Of Red – which are all available now – and The Path Of Razors release date is set for August 2009.

    Succubus Takes Manhatten -Spotlight & Review


    succubustmSuccubus Takes Manhattan by Nina Harper

  • Mass Market Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Del Rey ( Nov 25 2008 )
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0345495071
  • ISBN-13: 978-0345495075
  • (From Back Cover)

    “WHEN YOUR JOB IS DISPATCHING CREEPS TO THE HEREAFTER, A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND.

    Lily loves working for Satan. Being one of Her Chosen means a gig filled with fashion, food, and the best supernatural gal pals a succubus could imagine. Still, being dumped by the first mortal she’d fallen in love with in centuries has put Lily in a serious funk.
    Nathan Coleman bolted because he couldn’t handle Lily’s inner demon, but blond, buff, blue-eyed Marten is a delicious distraction, and he’s one of her own kind. Only Lily’s not sure she can trust him–especially when her best friend’s demon boyfriend is kidnapped, the ranks of the Hierarchy of Hell are gunning for her downfall, and Lily’s dashing P.I. beau is back on the scene, rekindling flames. Two men, too much temptation, and assassins closing in–if Lily survives, who claims her heart?”

    IF THINGS GET ANY HOTTER, LILY MIGHT GET BURNED. . . .

    This is the second book in this series by Nina Harper. The first book is Succubus In The City. I was sent this book to review by the lovely people at Random House Canada. I would classify it as Paranormal Chic Lit. A fun, light read, but with a lot of action and humor.

    Lily is a blast and she definitely has her hands full with Nathan and Marten! Smart, sassy and sexy, this book takes you to hell and back with an inside look at the Incubbus and Succubus trials and tribulations. I’m looking forward to reading more of Lily’s adventures!
