New Release–The School For Psychics By K.C. Archer Coming 4/3/18!

 

 

Twenty-four-year-old Teddy Cannon is in trouble. She’s petrified of the possible consequences, to her and her family, if she’s unable to satisfy the loan shark’s demand. Teddy shudders at the thought of her innocent, loving parents, being targeted by the mob. So even though Vegas has banned Teddy from their casinos, she feels as if she has no choice, but to go and try to win enough money to pay off her debt. Teddy dons what she feels is a good enough disguise. It’s not.

It is at the casino, where Teddy meets the man who will change her life. After this mysterious stranger, saves Teddy from a couple of mobsters, using only his mind-control ability, Teddy decides to take him up on his offer; to attend the school for psychics. The thing was, though, Teddy didn’t think she had much in the way of psychic power; this man, however, knew differently. Unbeknownst to Teddy, the school she was about to attend, was really a training center for classified government work. The graduates from this school for psychics, become part of a secret task force, to protect America.

I quickly became engrossed in the story and its characters. I found them to be unique, quirky, and fascinating. School For Psychics is a well-written and enjoyable read.

Thank you, Simon & Schuster and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

*The Operator* by Kim Harrison

Kim Harrison’s Newest Release! Check it out.

 

the-operator

The operator is a fast-paced, compelling, thriller.

Peri Reed is a drafter. She has the unique ability to remake history; by turning back time and rewriting it. The problem is, though, that Peri loses memory with each draft. Bill, an evil and manipulating key player from Opti, dangled a syringe in front of Peri and told her that for a favor, he could restore her memories. Of course, Bill has been lying to Peri for years. Still, she was tempted by his offer.

Peri has had relationships with three men in Opti, Allen, Jack, and Silas. She wished that she could remember more, than just vague pieces, of their time together. She does recall, however, that she once loved Jack, until he betrayed her. Now, he sometimes shows up as a hallucination, popping in and out of her life, following her about, and warning her of danger. She doesn’t know who to trust. Peri’s greatest desire is to stop hallucinating, live a normal life with her memories intact, and be free from addiction. The price for pursuing this dream of hers, though, almost costs Peri, her life.

The Operator is an entertaining, fast-paced, action-packed thriller with a complex plot and plenty of twists to keep the reader turning the pages.

I received this ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

*Seer of Souls* by Susan Faw*5-Stars

Seer of Souls is a cleverly crafted fantasy; filled with magic, intrigue, love, and betrayal.

Seer of Souls

Cayden and Avery Tiernan didn’t know that royal blood ran through their veins. The secret of their birth was hidden, even from them. The twins were aware of the Primordial Prophecy but believed it was more of a myth than truth. Cayden and Avery certainly didn’t think that they had anything to do with the well-known Prophecy until two Primordial beings showed up to lead them to their destiny.

Wizard Mordecai Ben-Moses, had been locked in the Castle Cathair’s dungeon for seventeen years. Queen Alcina thought that if she tortured the old wizard long enough, that he would eventually cave, and give her the information she needed to capture Cayden and Avery. She was wrong. Frustrated and determined to please the Goddess of the Underworld, the Queen had evil spirits sent out to locate the twins, bring them back and to kill anything that tried to interfere with her mission.

Susan Faw does an extraordinary job building a fantasy world for the reader. I found the characters memorable, their dialogue realistic and the story plot compelling. Seer of Souls is an entertaining and engrossing read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fantasy tale, well told.

*Jaxson*by Alisa Woods-5-Stars

Jaxson

Jaxson River is a shifter and former navy seal. He is also an Alpha that knows he must step down from his position. His pack deserves a true leader, a mated Alpha, something, he could never be. But, to reveal his shameful secret to the pack when their wolves were being kidnapped, just didn’t seem right. No, he would have to wait to clear his conscience until after he found and destroyed whoever was responsible for stealing their wolves.

Olivia Lilyfield is half-human, half-witch, and holds a dark secret within her. She’s determined to make a difference in the world. She knows that nothing could make up for her horrific mistake, but she was going to try to do so anyway. What Olivia didn’t plan on, though, was falling in love with a wolf, because to wolves, she was the enemy.

This is a well-written story and the first novel in the River Pack Wolves trilogy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading adult wolf-shifter romances.

*Curse of the Seven 70s* by Sharon E. Anderson

Curse of the Seven 70's

Curse of the Seven 70s is a unique and witty vampire story.

The protagonist, Cassandra, moved into her Great Aunt’s Cottage after being dumped by her cheating boyfriend, Howard. Although, Cassandra, swore that she was through with men forever, she still longed for her boyfriend. That all changed, however, when Varo, a charming vampire, materialized before her eyes in her Aunt’s basement. Cassandra knew that she was probably crazy, but she couldn’t help falling for the handsome vamp. Life was not easy for the two of them, especially when Varo’s long lost sadist brother, Vlad Dracula, showed up.

It took me a bit to get into the story because I didn’t care for Cassandra. But once Cassandra found Varo the story really took off for me. I did find some inconsistencies, but because the story was so entertaining and enjoyable it was easy to overlook them.

If you are looking for a unique fun vampire story, then Curse of the Seven 70s is the book for you.

*Infinity* by Nico Laeser*5-Stars

infinity

Infinity is a well-written poignant tale about a young boy who found himself tortured by shadows and nightmares, after a brief brush with death. The protagonist hated the fact that his sickly nature was the primary subject for his parent’s constant bickering. Alcohol became his father’s best friend and comfort and for his mother, mood alternating pills. After a terrible accident, the boy ran away and fell in with a group of drug dealers. The author takes the reader through the boy’s life of abuse and addiction. This is a dark and sad tale, but an accurate portrayal of a heroin’s hellish existence. Infinity is compelling, superbly written and unforgettable. Don’t miss it.
