Upcoming Virtual Book Tour - Katie Salidas with Hunters and Prey

Katie Salidas has joined forces once again to take Hunters & Prey on tour.  We are so happy to have her back!  She will begin touring towards the end of December,  stop into the VBT Cafe' Blog for more details.

About Hunters & Prey:

Becoming a vampire saved Alyssa from death, but the price was high: the loss of everything and everyone attached to her mortal life. She’s still learning to cope when a surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the friend she’s missed more than anything.

Alyssa breaks vampire law by revealing her new, true self to her old friend, a fact which causes strong division in the group that should support her most: her clan.

Worse yet, her revelation entangles Fallon in the struggle between vampires and hunters and The Acta Sanctorum is ready to attack again, with a new army of hybrid creations: the Frenzy Soldiers.

If Alyssa hopes to survive and keep her mortal friend safe, she’ll have to be willing to make a deal with the enemy, and regain her clan’s support. It will take everyone working together in a precarious truce to fight against the Acta Sanctorum’s new threat.

Winner for this week's What Do You Know Wednesday!

Kristen from My Bloody Fairy Tale!  Congratulations Kristen.  Send me an email letting me know which book from the list you would like to receive :).

Hello y'all.  I am having trouble deciding which cover would be best for my newest Ebook.  The series is Immortyl Kisses,  which will be several novelettes.  The first installment is The Forgotten Kiss,  the second installment is The Kiss of Betrayal.   So with that said,  could you please help me decide which cover would be best by voting for your favorite cover?  The winner will receive a signed disc with PDF's of the first two novelettes included with a jacket and signed cover.

First,  about the books :  So you can see the first cover :) and trailer is at end of this post.

Book 1 The Forgotten Kiss -

A rogue vampire is on the loose Halloween night and Tristan (vampire) and Logan (werewolf) must keep Raine from its clutches.  The rogue vamp is quicker than they think and snatches her right before their eyes.  The boys must put their differences aside and join forces to rescue the girl.  When reality hits that both harvest feelings towards Raine,  one is determined to make her forget Immortyl Kisses.

Book 2 The Kiss of Betrayal -

With her memories missing,  Logan and Tristan must keep Raine from danger.  When a witch comes to warn them of the Rogue back on the hunt,  the danger becomes more imminent than ever.  Will Raine regain her memories before it's too late?  As the truth is revealed,  Raine finds more than just a kiss forgotten.  She becomes the Kiss of Betrayal.

6 Stars for Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Angelfire (Angelfire, #1)Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton is one of the best YA reads I've had the pleasure of reading. Action packed with her own twist on Spiritual Warfare, this is a MUST READ!

Ellie Monroe thought that she had the normal teenage life - friends, parties, school, family and boys. That is until she meets the gorgeous and mysterious Will.

Ellie has repeated nightmares from her past, about fighting and conquering monsters, and as Will tries to convince Ellie that she yields the power to prevent a war brewing between Heaven and Hell, she thinks he is absolutely crazy.

Will has stood by Ellie for 500 years, and each time she dies she is reborn into another mortal body. During this rebirth though, Ellie's memories fail to return as quickly as they usually do, but she gets pieces of it through her dreams. Now Ellie must put her trust into the one man she thinks has lost his mind.

When a Reaper threatens to raise the one demonic creature that could destroy her very soul, Ellie and Will fight side by side to save human souls along with her own.

Lying to her family and friends, Ellie tries to accept what and who she is, what her mission is all the while trying to fight for the love she feels for Will and save the world.

From the first page Angelfire was full of keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat action. Moulton did a fantastic job with this title, the plot was perfect, the characters were brilliant, and it was a great twist on good vs. evil with a touch of romance.

I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it as one of the best reads of the year. I give Angelfire ****** (6) Stars, BK Walker.

Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
1.  Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below
In your link, please state the main genre that you review:  eclectic, contemp. fiction, ya, paranormal, mystery, non-fiction, etc.

Please do not list every genre you review - if you are review a variety, please put eclectic!  The Hop gets jumbled up if the title is too long, so please limit to one genre.  I will be limiting the number of characters in the title to ensure the Hop doesn't look messy!  Thank you!

Example:  Crazy-for-Books (eclectic adult fiction) 
NOTE:   You no longer have to enter the length of time you've been blogging, but do let us know if this is your first time hopping with us!

This week's question comes from Christina who blogs at The Paperback Princesses:

"If you find a book that looks interesting but is part of a series, do you always start with the first title?"

I always try to start at the beginning of the series so I know what's going on,  though I have read into the series,  and then have gone back to the first book.  Because of one incident of reading book 8 in a series once,  I now try to start from the beginning.

***** Review of Drowned Sorrow by Vanessa Morgan

Drowned SorrowDrowned Sorrow by Vanessa Morgan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Drowned Sorrow by Vanessa Morgan is a heart pounding, suspenseful, and got-to-know what happens next read!

Megan was a successful business woman that let her job take over her life. When her son commits suicide, on accident, while seeking her attention, her life changes forever.

Not letting her daughter slip away, she takes Jenna on vacation to Moonlight Creek. When they arrive, the town seems like a ghost town.

There is something strange about Moonlight Creek, and Megan and Jenna soon find out there is more to this small village than what meets the eye.

The lake is what controls the people, and as weird events keep happening, Megan becomes scared and desperate to leave. As she fears for hers and her daughters life, she meets an unexpecting encounter, and her daughter and her flee.

What she didn't plan, was for the ones she loves to become a part of it all. Morgan did a fantastic job keeping the suspense alive. This is one book that will have you turning the pages to find out what happens next.

Though I was a little disappointed in the ending, not in a bad way but in a way you wished it ended differently, I loved this book. You will have to decide for yourself how you interpret the ending, whether you to wished it ended differently or not.

I give Drowned Sorrow ***** (5) Stars, BK Walker. http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com
