Spotlight Review: The Tarczal Alliance

Addictive, delicious, and filled with characters, plot lines and hooks—you’ll die for. If J. Paulette Forshey doesn’t keep writing—it’d be a crime.

I didn’t just like it. I didn’t just care for the story or characters, or the writing style. I didn’t just connect to the story. No. I loved all of these elements. Elements that make “The Tarczal Alliance” a fantastic read and a credit to the genre. If you like vampires—you should be going to bed tonight with “The Tarczal Alliance.”

Let me tell you about my reading adventure. I made it to Chapter 6 during my first reading session. Hard to break away because there was too much going on that I really liked. It was a shame to leave the book as I was enjoying the author’s writing style – but it was a short-lived shame because I started my second reading session an hour later. As soon as I got to chapter 8, I knew it was over for me. What’s left to say, really? This book is addictive.

I’m not a betting person, but I’d bet on this outcome. You’ll become addicted to “The Tarczal Alliance” and it won’t take long. I’d bet you’ll be hooked by chapter 6—like I was.

I would recommend this highly engaging read if you want an escape. You can get lost in a world of your own—it’s a good world to get lost in. Why don’t you give it a try?

Spotlight Review: Lilly’s Angel (Fangs & Halos Book 1)

A scintillating, addictive vampire read set in New Orleans written by a writer who has skill, taste and the ability to weave golden words…

I decided to pick up “Lily’s Angel” the other day. It’s a fairly long book, but the author has a vivid writing style. After just a few chapters, I expected this to be the start of something pretty good.

Charlayne Elizabeth Denney does a good job describing scenes. She does a fine job of creating a storyline and keeping it consistent… but she excels with her characters. Lilly Marchantel may be one of the finest characters ever created by a novelist in this genre. Not only is she developed—her dialogue is beautifully executed and will certainly grab your attention. If you pick up this book—pick it up expecting to be wowed by Lily. Sullivan is another character who has depth and will become a reader favorite.

The author manages to both tell the story while at the same time giving a good understand of the vampire society. Lily is constantly learning about her brand-new environment and the author does a good job of letting the audience in on this. She’s a great cultural interpreter for the reader.

“Lily’s Angel” also has some of the most tastefully approached sex scenes in the genre. Chapter two is sexually explosive. This is a book you will enjoy on this level, too.

Overall I would recommend “Lily’s Angel” as a book that you are likely to enjoy. If you want something to read with edge, poise and a lot of great writing—this is the one for you.

Lilly Marchantel entertains her client—a vampire—for a night of paid passion and dies. Or does she? Her madam, the famous Lulu White of Mahogany Hall, throws a lavish funeral for the girl and buries her in St. Louis 1 Cemetery.

During the chaos in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Enforcer angel Sullivan is sent to the cemetery to verify reports of two rogue vampires. How much trouble can an angel get into in New Orleans? What could happen if Sullivan loses his powers?

“Lilly’s Angel” tells the story of Lilly’s discovery of a whole new world with her friends Baron the Cat and the skull she talks to as the pissed off and horny Sullivan struggles against the changes he is experiencing.

Spotlight Review: Vessel of Power

When a Sci-Fi author turns her hand to the paranormal… a terrific book is born! Michelle O’Leary takes a story and turns into an addiction… will she write another book like this?

It is hard to write about “Vessel of Power” by Michelle O’Leary without giving away too much. This is a book I want to rave about! I promise to keep this review short though. I don’t want to give the story away. But the author was inspired to turn out something special with this release. It shows on every page.

While I think, it is important to understand that the following opinion is purely my own… I found the author’s writing voice rather hypnotic. I found myself fighting to stop reading the book. I don’t know if other readers have become addicted to this book—but the author had me hooked from start to finish.

For even the most gifted writers, writing fiction leads to the trap of wanting to write the most mundane of daily activities. The most talented writers find themselves turning out boring chapters. There’s always a lull, right? I was expecting at least a little slowdown while reading “Vessel of Power”—but none came. The pace of the story was fast. The characters are well developed.  Prince Destin is one of the strongest characters in any novel of this genre. You are going to notice him. Believe me.

In other words, this is a book that you should read to find out what I am talking about. “Vessel” is a reminder of how one delightful book can hold your attention and keep you captive until the small hours. Be prepared for a rollercoaster ride of a book that will make you look at other bestsellers with a very critical eye—seriously—grab this book today.

His soulless father will use it to destroy their world, starting with her family. Lia will do whatever it takes to protect the Vessel, except she can’t seem to end this magnetic prince of fire.

Destin won’t let anything stand in his way, even a gorgeous changeling with mayhem on her mind. He’s determined to prove his worth as son and heir by retrieving the Vessel for his father. Lia challenges him at every turn, but he burns whenever he’s near this tantalizing changeling.

Torn between loyalty to family and desire for one another, Destin and Lia struggle to find the right path. Can they save their world and each other? Will finding the Vessel bind them together or drive them apart forever?

Spotlight Review: Tears of the Innocent

Perfect description, perfect characters, a killer storyline and one of the best new authors of today… you’re going to want to become acquainted with R.L. Seago!

“Tears of the Innocent” grabbed me with the first chapter and didn’t let go. Wonderfully descriptive, with characters perfectly fleshed out and action that kept the scenes moving along at a good pace. This is a story that will take over your life for the duration of the novel.

Lacey DeVane knows her son is alive, despite what everyone keeps telling her. That is, everyone except the dead teenage girl on her autopsy table.

Ryder Raynes and his devoted partner Joker keep themselves busy, not only with their private detective agency, but with Ryder’s quest for revenge against the Devil’s Disciples, the outlaw biker club responsible for the scar that Ryder bears.

Summer Papadopolous is stunningly gorgeous, with a body that most men would kill for, but her heart is as black as midnight. She is the head of one of the world’s largest sex trafficking rings, and God help the man who lays a finger on one of her girls.

Ryder and Lacey are on the trail of her missing son Micah, and when they meet up with Summer and her “family” all hell will break loose.

When the two women collide in the Nevada desert for the body and soul of one young boy, the dry, arid heat will be no match for the inferno that will engulf them all, as Lacey fights to rescue her son, and Ryder comes face to face with a familiar stranger from his past.

All of this from an author who has been undiscovered by most of the reading public. Why is that? As legend of this book grows—and it will—there are going to be a lot of people lining up to get their fix of stories from this author. If you can write an addictive book like this—you deserve to be on every book shelf in the world. I recommend “Tears of the Innocent” for your reading pile… today!
