Review @Vickie_IO_Tours - Raven's Breath by Tish Thawer @TishThawer



Raven’s Breath
by Tish Thawer

Goodreads Blurb:  Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you...the choice is yours. 

They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn't know...your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace.

Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue...she hasn't discovered it yet.

Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?

*A new adult urban fantasy stand-alone novel. This book contains foul language.*




About the Author:  Tish Thawer writes paranormal romances for all ages, including her new adult series The Rose Trilogy, and her adult paranormal romance, The Ovialell Series, as well as young adult short-stories. Her magickal elements and detailed world-building are a welcome constant in every novel. 

Before becoming a writer she worked as a computer consultant, a photographer, and a graphic designer. She also operates a custom glass etching business, in addition to being a wife and mother of three wonderful children.


She's been a fan of the paranormal for as long as she can remember. Anything to do with superpowers, myth and magic has always held a special place in her heart.  From her first paranormal cartoon, Isis, to the phenomenon that is Twilight, this genre has always been a part of her life.

A common FAQ: "How do you pronounce her last name?"
Answer: Think "Bower" or "Thow-er." It's Persian!

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***Received the ebook for free for an honest review

Okay, I hate to admit this, but the cover does nothing for me, and I would have missed out if I judged this book by it’s cover.

Okay, I really enjoyed this book.  This is the first book that I have read by Tish, and I really liked her writing style.  It is easy to read, and a great adventure.  I loved the combinations of Heaven and Hell with the Death and the Grim Reapers, but then she threw in Norse mythology too.  It mixed very well together and was a great adventure.  I’m going to have to look into more of Tish’s work since she writes paranormal romance, and I love reading this genre.

I really liked Raven and Garrett.  They were my favorite characters.  They are best friends and made me laugh.  I like that Raven is strong and doesn’t take crap from anyone.  I love how she stands up for herself and fights for what she believes is right.

I definitely recommend this story to my paranormal romance reading friends.  You will definitely enjoy this unique story!!

Interesting in reading???

TNH_Final
Bianca St. Germain works at a Night House, a place where vampires like the aristocratic Jeremiah Archer, pay to feed on humans, and she doesn’t much care what others think of her. The money is good, and at least there, she’s safe. Bianca also doesn’t care that the Night House is killing her. All she cares about is: nauth, the highly addictive poison in vampire bites that brings a euphoria like no drug ever could.
But when Bianca meets James, a reclusive empath who feels everything she does, for the first time, she considers a life outside of the Night House and a someone worth living for. But Jeremiah has decided to keep Bianca for himself; he won’t allow her to walk away.
As she allows her feelings for James to grow, she struggles to contain nauth's strong hold on her life. If they are to have a future, James must make her see what she's worth, what she means to him, before Jeremiah and nauth claim her for good.

LEIGHTON'S SUMMER 

by K.C. Finn

Release Date: April 15, 2014
Genre: Young Adult 
(Paranormal, Historical, Adventure and Romance)

We are pleased to announce the official cover reveal for the sequel to The Mind's Eye: Leighton's Summer by K.C. Finn. Leighton's Summer will release on April 15th! Make sure to comment and let us know what you think of this new cover in the Synsk Series!





A teenage boy with something to prove gets caught up in a web of crime and deceit in England, 1945.

In the weeks leading up to his sixteenth birthday, gifted psychic Leighton Cavendish finds himself suddenly packed off to Blackpool, a glittering teenage paradise filled with plenty of opportunities for amusement—and trouble—to ensue. With only a preoccupied grandmother to keep an eye on him, Leighton’s desperation for adventure leads him out into a world of holidaymakers, candy and carnival rides—the ideal place to spend six weeks away from home.

But Leighton’s psychic visions are encroaching on his fun, trying to warn him of the danger that lurks beyond the shimmering lights of the Golden Mile. Who are the mysterious thieves Leighton sees in his head and what do they want with the children they seek? A girl called Faye holds the answer, but she has enough problems of her own. 

Amid the climate of a tourist town recovering from the impact of the Second World War, two lost teenagers will discover a shocking truth about human greed and together they will try to fight against it. For Leighton and Faye this will be a summer to remember—a summer filled with challenges that must be overcome.

A summer that turns a boy into a man. 


THE MIND'S EYE 

by K.C. Finn

NEW RELEASE AVAILABLE NOW!

Genre: Young Adult 
(Paranormal, Historical, Adventure and Romance)


A girl with a telepathic gift finds a boy clinging to his last hope during the war-torn climate of Europe, 1940.




At fifteen, Kit Cavendish is one the oldest evacuees to escape London at the start of the Second World War due to a long term illness that sees her stuck in a wheelchair most of the time. But Kit has an extraordinary psychic power: she can put herself into the minds of others, see through their eyes, feel their emotions, even talk to them – though she dares not speak out for fear of her secret ability being exposed.





As Kit settles into her new life in the North Wales village of Bryn Eira Bach, solitude and curiosity encourage her to gain better control of her gift. Until one day her search for information on the developing war leads her to the mind of Henri, a seventeen-year-old Norwegian boy witnessing the German occupation of his beloved city, Oslo. As Henri discovers more about the English girl occupying his mind, the psychic and emotional bonds between them strengthen and Kit guides him through an oppressive and dangerous time. 



There are secrets to be uncovered, both at home and abroad, and it’s up to Kit and Henri to come together and fight their own battles in the depths of the world’s greatest war.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



Born in South Wales to Raymond and Jennifer Finn, Kimberley Charlotte Elisabeth Finn (known to readers as K.C., otherwise it'd be too much of a mouthful) was one of those corny little kids who always wanted to be a writer. She was also incredibly stubborn, and so has finally achieved that dream in 2013 with the release of her first three novellas in the four-part Caecilius Rex saga, the time travel adventure The Secret Star and her new urban fantasy epic The Book Of Shade.




As a sufferer with the medical condition M.E./C.F.S., Kim works part time as a private tutor and a teacher of creative writing, devoting the remainder of her time to writing novels and studying for an MA in Education and Linguistics.




K.C. Finn signed with Clean Teen Publishing in late 2013. Her first book published with Clean Teen Publishing: The Mind's Eye, is scheduled to release on April 1, 2014. This will be shortly followed by the sequel, Leighton's Summer.

Review - Bearing It All by Lynn Red (The Jamesburg Shifters #2)




Bearing It All
The Jamesburg Shifters #2
by Lynn Red

Goodreads blurb:  From USA TODAY best-selling author Anya Karin writing as Lynn Red comes a steamy, seductive, hilarious and delicious alpha werebear romance.

Curvy, witty, carrot-topped Violet Larue is a fox shifter with a goal – she NEEDS to find herself a mate before she goes absolutely nuts.

After a string of bad relationships that left her heartbroken, and a bunch of dates that were more pie-in-the-face than swept-off-her-feet, Violet is just about ready to throw in the towel. She wants someone to chase her, to possess her, to make her his mate.

Somehow convinced to attend the only cage fight she’s ever seen, Violet has no idea that she’s about to lay eyes on just the bear for her.

Muscled, inked-up and one of the most dangerous fighters in the world, “Crag” Morgan is the bear of Violet’s dreams. With a dark past and an even darker present, love is nowhere near the top of Crag’s to-do list... until he’s looking around the crowd and catches a glimpse of a redhead with eyes that make his heart skip a beat.

He is everything she ever wanted. A self-assured, massively powerful alpha with a waist just perfect for wrapping her legs around? Uh, yes please! But little does Violet know that in the split second Crag spied her in the audience, she stole his heart. The bad boy fighter decided then and there to do whatever it takes to claim her... forever.

Note: THE JAMESBURG SHIFTERS is a series of standalone novels each featuring a unique hero and heroine and a satisfying HEA ending. No cliffhangers here! Books can be enjoyed in any order you like!


About the Author:  Lynn doesn't love anything more than being wrapped up in a hammock with her corgi on her stomach and a pile of her favorite books to read. And by "pile of books" she means "a kindle."
She loves all sorts of romance, but especially ones that feature big, strong alphas who will stop at nothing to prove themselves to the women who melt their hearts.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!

The cover is sexy and awesome!  It totally grabs my attention as a shifter lovin’ reader :)

This was such a fun and foxy read :)  Violet is quirky, fun, and sassy.  She is also quite hyper and has a thing for big bears.  You definitely get an idea of all of her bad dates.  You will love her date with Eustace…lol  Her friend Henry is an awesome friend who is always trying to help her out. 

Crag, what a name, sort of made him sound like a caveman.  I totally fell in love with him and his back story.

I was totally entertained with this story :)  I definitely laughed out loud and thoroughly enjoyed with whole story :)  There is plenty of action with fights, potions, zombies, and so much more.  Lynn’s writing and humor in this story worked wonderfully together.  I have to go back and read book 1 because I want to read Erik’s story too!!  The amusing part is I didn’t even realize that I already bought it…I’m such a book addict :)  So look for that review in the future.  And you can definitely read this story without having read book 1 yet because I didn’t feel like I was missing anything key except wanting to know more about Erik and Izzy :)

I recommend this story to my shifter lovin’ friends who want an entertaining action packed story with some humor mixed in.
