Ava Michaels used to think she was special. As a child, she fantasized about having magical powers . . . making things happen. But Ava grew up and eventually accepted the fact that her childish dreams were just that, and maybe a normal life wasn't so bad after all.
Now a young college student, Ava meets Caleb Foster, a brilliant and mysterious man who’s supposed to help her pass physics, but in reality has another mission in mind. What he shows Ava challenges her view of the world, shaking it to its very core. Because Caleb isn't quite what he seems. In fact, he's not entirely human, and he's not the only one.
Together, the duo faces a threat from an ancient race bound to protect humans, but only after protecting their own secrets—secrets they fear Ava may expose. Fighting to survive, Ava soon learns she's not actually normal . . . she's not even just special.
She's a little bit more.

Cover Reveal: Havoc Rising by Brian S. Leon

Displaying Havoc Rising - Large.jpgTitle: Havoc Rising
Author: Brian S. Leon
Publication Date: June 2015
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Eternal life. Eternal battle.

Steve—Diomedes Tydides to his Trojan War buddies—just had a bad day on his charter fishing boat in San Diego, but when the goddess Athena calls on her faithful warrior for another secret mission, he’s ready. The bomb that exploded inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art isn’t the crime American authorities think it is. Someone also stole the Cup of Jamshid, and Diomedes knows its fortune-telling abilities won’t be used for anything benign.
Though Diomedes recovers the Cup from a determined shaman holed up beneath Central Park, when he finds his allies slain and the Cup taken once more, he knows he’s up against a truly powerful enemy. Over a millennium has passed since Diomedes last contended with Medea of Colchis, deranged wife of Jason the Argonaut, but neither her madness nor her devotion to Hecate, goddess of witchcraft, has waned, and she intends to use the Cup of Jamshid to release across the world a dark brand of chaos unseen in human history.

Immortal since the Trojan War, Diomedes must once again fight for mortals he understands less and less, against a divine evil he may never truly defeat.

Brian S. Leon is truly a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none. He began writing in order to do something with all the useless degrees, knowledge, and skills–most of which have no practical application in civilized society–he accumulated over the years.
His varied interests include, most notably, mythology of all kinds and fishing, and he has spent time in jungles and museums all over the world, studying and oceans and seas across the globe chasing fish, sometimes even catching them. He has also spent time in various locations around the world doing other things that may or may not have ever happened.

Inspired by stories of classical masters like Homer and Jules Verne, as well as modern writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, David Morrell, and Jim Butcher, combined with an inordinate amount of free time, Mr. Leon finally decided to come up with tales of his own.

Book Tour: Come, The Dark by Rebecca Hamilton (Review + Giveaway)



Displaying ComeTheDark copy.jpgTitle: Come, the Dark by Rebecca Hamilton
(Forever Girl #2)
Publication date: January 6th 2015
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

Synopsis:

TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse.
Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.
The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.
Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.
A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.
Review:

~Thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review~

I loved Come, the Dark. Please note that this book contains detailed violence and sexual abuse. I love it how Rebecca Hamilton managed to combine Fantasy,  Historical Fiction, Spiritual Fiction, and sexual abuse into one mesmerizing tale. At first, I didn't know what to expect. I was really confused by the changes in time, and I thought it was a typo. Then, I realised that it was all deliberate, and it was then that I realised what a great book Come, the dark was. After that point, every time I had some time to read digitally,  I passionately read on, and I started loving it more and more till the point where I knew I was going to give it 5+ stars. I'm telling you, I loved it. It was confusing at the start, but it was definitely worth reading on. If you're a fan of Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Spiritual Fiction, or a mix of them definitely give Come, the dark a go. you never know, you might just wind up liking Cordovae as much as I do.
