Giveaway, Contest, and Some Fun with Brennus!

Ohhhh, 2014. Bring me Iniquity as fast as you can…

That last teaser Amy posted was AWESOME! Almost had me thinking about the dark side…

darkside

I’m a bacon fan too, Luke. But I’m talking about a different dark side…

Brennus ecard

What say you TEAM REED!?!?

“Dat is me aingeal dat ye’re breakin’, Valentine,” –Brennus  (Kristin: That was pretty bad-ass)

Leave to Kristin to research and come up with a totally hot Brennus quote!

I… I… I…

What do we make of all these teasers, ladies?

More importantly, Team Reed sistas, will Evie’s wings react to his? Does that battleaxe tattoo glow when she’s around? We already know the axe sings to Evie. And even hearing Brennus described from Russell’s POV, I’m all– he’s hot. Grrrr.

New mysterious characters

 “You must be Brennus,” Djet says behind him. Brennus’ eyes narrow as he straightens to face Djet. 
      “If I must,” Brennus says pleasantly enough, but his anger is recognizable to me. “And ye must be Emil.” Fallen angels move in closer, surroundin’ Djet protectively, while their eyes focus on the back of the room by the doors. Behind me I hear click, click, click, click, click, click…hundreds of Gancanagh fangs engagin’ at once.
     “How do you know that name?” he asks Brennus. 

(DOH! He’s Emil!)

Xavier and Evie

“Xavier’s soft tone does something to me. I want to hide beneath it, wrap myself in it like a blanket and rest.” –Evie

Reed and Evie

                   “My hand stills. I panic. Time could change us, like it had with Xavier and me. I feel like my heart unravels, but I don’t let him see it.” –Evie

Brennus and Evie

“His energy spreads through me, first from my heart, through the roadmap of my veins, to places I never wanted Brennus to go. I gasp as my body involuntarily curls toward him like a flower to the sun, for the pleasure of it.”  –Evie

Produces a lot of questions. And if I’m being honest, I’m half-crazed after these teasers. I. Cannot. Wait! Speaking of questions, check this out. This blog gets quite a few hits based on the craziest Google searches. Anything in (this) are my comments.

Here are few gems:

Are angels undead?

Fierce guardian angels (HELL YEAH!)

When do Evie and Reed have sex?

Why is Reed Wellington your book boyfriend?

An evil residue used by the foolish and the crazy

Shower scene in premonition book 4

Does Evie end up with Xavier? (that’s not even close to funny!)

Sic soul mate watching novel

Where did Zee’s southern charms go? (lol… what?)

Angel wings ripped off fantasy (too many of us wished Tau maimed???)

Book about half human half angel meets soul mate and falls in love

Zephyr angel character book Amazon

who is xavier in the premonition series (<– an angel I’m scared to death might steal Evie from my Reed and break his heart!)

Demon angels fighting GD angel tattoo

Will they make the Premonition Series into a movie? (WE WISH!)

Amy Bartol meet Reed

Gabi love death Brennus

Fantastic four fanfic Reed hurt dead

Hate Evie from premonition (Insert comment with profanity here)

gaping angellllll

Brennus viewing slave woman analyzation (seriously?)

I hate Brennus

Who did Gabi have a crush on? (Answer: Reed)

Kristin Reed Engaged (So jelly!)

Another machine like Evie

Why can’t Reed and Evie just be happy?

who should play brennus in premonition series

(good question. Let’s say Henry. And let’s say there was a scene where he finally accepts Evie will never be his. Whoa. )

henry pic close up

intuition by amy bartol reed’s phone call scene ( 😦 Reed….)

evie in private

I didn’t include the umpteen sex + Reed questions. lol

Anyway, I get a good laugh sometimes. It also makes me happy that so many people out there are researching my FAVORITE series. 🙂

For the best updates go to Amy A Bartol’s website.

I read an interview she did on Vilma’s Book Blog during Vilma’s paranormal week. Awesome interview! In it Amy said she wanted to wrap up the series with Iniquity, and if she decided to continue it she would do it in secret. Release it, then tell the world. Fingers crossed that Iniquity is not the last book.

Here is the Premonition Series order:

Inescapable

Intuition

Indebted

Incendiary

Iniquity

SIX EBOOKS!!!

Winner will recieve an ebook copy of:

Vain by Fisher Amelie

There will be MANY ways to enter this giveaway. BUT, in the spirit of “I’m about to lose my mind if I don’t get Iniquity in my hands Asap”…. let’s make this a little more interesting!

We’ll call it the What If Contest. A little side dish to the giveaway. One winner will receive any ebook of your choice up to $10.00.  Or a gift card. I will pick the winner randomly on 1/27/14. To enter this contest (separate from the giveaway & you can enter both), answer the following question in three sentences or less in the comments of this post:

What if Evie and Brennus ended up together? What would it take for that to happen? Some of you are reading this giving me the evil eye. That’s cool. If your answer is: I can’t even begin to imagine Evie & Reed not together. Okay.

I’ve asked a hardcore Team Brennus member:  “I think Reed had to die in battle.  It’s the only way for Evie to be at peace knowing she’ll finally be with Brennus, her true love.  She loved Reed but she couldn’t breathe without her dark king.” — Cristina from Cristina’s Book Reviews <– One of my favorite book blogs

I’ve asked a loyal Team Reed member: “Reed runs off with Kristin after realizing she, not Evie, is his soulmate.  Then and only then, will Brennus have my blessing to make Evie into whatever he wants.” — Kristin from Kristin’s Kindle Book Reviews <– My partner in crime & amazing reviewer who can’t see past her lust to take this question seriously 😉

 And she said, “Reed and I would make fabulous babies together.”

My Answer: Zee dies in a battle saving Reed’s life.

OMG. I just freaked myself out.

Explanation: I love Zee. Nearly as much as Reed. If Zee dies, I will blame Evie. I LOVE her, but no doubt it’ll be some battle trying to rescue her and dammit! She will no longer be good enough for Reed. *thinks of feather exchange & Zee’s never ending and absolute loyalty to Reed and Evie*

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

**I will purchase all ebooks through Amazon.

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.  
My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.  
And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.  
Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.   Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay.
There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.
SHADOW
Shadow pic..
What did I think of Semblance?
I loved it. This novel is a fast-paced, suspense driven, page-turner.
There was one clever twist after another. And just when I could breath a little
sigh of relief… BOOM! I’m stunned and making — no-way-that-just-happened noises.
Honest to God, I suspected everyone and figured out nothing! Every single plot
twist is relevant, and dammit! my 007 inner fangirl was all about the society’s
security.

Jennifer L. Armentrout’s The Dark Elements & GIVEAWAY

That’s right… it’s a post to get everyone on the Jennifer train!!

In this post: Info on The Dark Elements Series with links, a BIG giveaway with Jennifer L. Armentrout SWAG and ebooks, and a few bitstrips comics I made all involving Jennifer’s books!

I cannot wait for The Dark Elements Series!!

Gargoyles & demons & sexy dudes.

Have you heard? According to Jennifer L Armentrout the guys in her new series, DARK ELEMENTS, are more swoony than any of her other male characters. (Whaaaaat?)

bitter sweet

Bitter Sweet Love will be released on Dec. 1st, 2013 pre-order it here

From Goodreads In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…

Alright. Alright… sounds pretty damn good!

Allegiant (#1 NYT Divergent Trilogy) GIVEAWAY!!

all

Allegiant by #1 bestselling author Veronica Roth is ALREADY #1 in Kindle ebooks sales!! And there’s a reason– The Divergent Trilogy rocks!

We are celebrating Allegiant’s release with a GIVEAWAY! All 3 Divergent ebooks!

Link for giveaway at the bottom of this post

From Goodreads


What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
EEEEEEEE!!!!

Allegiant will be released tomorrow, Oct 22nd, 2013– and will be told from dual perspectives. I cannot wait! to get inside Four’s head.

diver

Allegiant is a YA dystopia novel. In Divergent we meet Beatrice Prior, who lives in dystopian Chicago. The society is divided up into five factions: Candor, Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, and Amity.

As it is for all sixteen years olds, she must pick a faction. If she does not pick the faction her family belongs to, she may never see them again. Worse! Beatrice’s test she was given (to figure out what faction she should belong to) came back with two answers. VERY unusual.

diverg

She made her choice and has to go through a brutal initiation. If she doesn’t make the cut, she will be homeless and shunned from all factions.

Enter Four

DIVERGENT

Turns out Tris (Beatrice) was not the only one who had unusual test scores and was told to keep it quiet. Tris is the tiniest, weakest, and is the one most likely to fail the initiation… But Four sees something in her and pushes Tris day after day. ❤ And out Tris never gives up.

I did a swoon list on this blog (find it here) and Four made that list:

FourYea, yea, I know his real name is Tobias. He will always be Four to me. From Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth. You’ve all read these books. No point in explaining why Four is on my list. Let’s take a moment of silence and relive the first time he took off his shirt in front of innocent Tris! Or threw the knife at her. Or showed her his simulation. Or watched helplessly as Tris got her ass kicked and refused to stay down during Dauntless training. Who’s Dauntless now, bitches!?

four-back-tattoo-trailer

If you can’t tell, I love Four. And The Divergent Trilogy is my favorite dystopia series.

I already pre-ordered Allegiant, it comes out tomorrow Oct. 22nd!!!

Paranormal Week; CAGED Can You Run With Wolves? And GIVEAWAY!

CAGED Series by Amber Lynn Natusch!!

13263105

Have you run with these wolves? I have….

From book #2, Haunted set-up: Ruby has a friend’s 18 yr old daughter, Peyta staying with her and roomie Cooper (oh, God… I ❤ Cooper!!), and they decide to turn on some music…

When Bel Biv Devoe’s “Poison” came on, it was game over. Moves as old as Peyta were busted out across the room as I went into a 1990’s hip-hop flashback. Cooper joined me in doing the running man around the coffee table…”

This so Ruby! I added this excerpt to show you that this series is so damn laugh out loud funny at times. Just after they start dancing her man, Sean walks in unannounced… all straight-faced and serious and as always… hot as hell! I can picture the whole scene and just love all these characters!

Also, I can’t help myself… Ruby, this one’s for you!!!

Turn it up!!!

****

Who is Ruby? And what’s this inner wolf Scarlet all about?

Is this like 50 shades and the inner goddess?

If so, I’m popping some popcorn!

Nope. Scarlet is Ruby’s wolf, and blows away any inner goddess. I think I love Scarlet just as much as Ruby. Unlike all the other wolves in Caged, Scarlet can plow through a wolf pack of 500 like a boss. This also means that she (Ruby) is a target. Unfortunately the person whose job it is to rid the world of these rare, RB wolves is Sean.

Please see Badass Chicks post here for more on Ruby.

If Sean is her man, then… oh. Oh no.

Yeah. Not good.

Sean is thousands of years old and the son of the god of war and an angel. This equals super powers! Like speed and strength and God-like hotness and! When he growls… the walls shakes.

He’s cool, collected, and rarely breaks from his all-business stance. Well, unless Ruby is involved. Although his job is to take Ruby out, he makes it his mission to save her life.

I an here with you now, and I will be with you until the end of time. You may fall apart, but I will always pick up the pieces… You and I are beyond this world, Ruby. Beyond love.” –Sean

I know! I know… <– second I know said with empathy. I want my own Sean too.

Here’s a link to Amazon in case you need more of Sean right this second– Fractured.

Also, he doesn’t get along with Ruby’s wolf Scarlet. It’s a juicy twist, really. To be so deeply in love with Ruby, and want to kill her inner wolf.

What of this Cooper you’re all hearts and !!!! over?

Cooper? I wish he was my Alpha!!

You look pretty hot driving around in that gargantuan vehicle, Coop,” I told him, grinning ear to ear.

“I look hot in everything, Ruby. You should know that by now.”

“What about us?” Ali asked stepping out of the SUV. “We don’t look hot?”

“You look twelve…” Cooper spat over his shoulder. “Ruby isn’t a pedophile.”

*sigh*

One thing about paranormal books is not just the immediate threat (Oh Crap! I’ve got a knife at my throat!)… or the pending threat (We’ve discovered what the evil villain’s plan is… but can we stop it?)… it’s also the underlined Oh f#ck of it all– beyond all this crazy sh#t, we’ve got BIGGER problems!! Like, The organization that’s been around for thousands of years to keep the balance between the human world and the supernatural world — Yeah, they’re here. Watching, waiting for one wrong move.

And DAMMIT! Ruby just accidentally let Scarlet out!

No worries, Cooper is here. As always.

Cooper is my hero, and Ruby’s. He struggles in book #2, but comes back to us even more wonderful than he was in Caged. As I said earlier, Cooper lives with Ruby. They share an unbreakable bond and this, at times, infuriates Sean. Both are ultra protective of Ruby (YUM) and both feel very possessive of her (YUMMIER).

And it’s not that I am rooting for the underdog, no, no, no. Because their bond and friendship is like no other. I don’t need to wish she would pick Cooper, he’s got her! Just in a different way than Sean.

 I do, however, love me some pissed off, growling, yellow eyed, about-to-go-wolf-on-your-ass Cooper. Sean elicited these delicious, Alpha tendencies and I swear it’s like having two leading men battling it out for dominance!  And I don’t care who wins, I just want a front row seat!!

There are 6 books in this series all of which you can find here.

INTERVIEW!!

***

Brennus walks into the room and takes a seat across from us, casually leaning back in the chair. He gives both Kristin and I a crooked smile, while looking at our Team Reed T-shirts. I grab her hand under the table and squeeze to calm myself (despite my hatred, he’s hot as hell!) and also to stop Kristin from lunging at him. She lets go of my hand and sticks another pin in her Brennus voodoo doll. He is dressed in a dark gray suit, his hands manicured, and his black hair slicked back, yet not.
***
GD—Thank you for joining us today, Brennus. I trust you’ve fed on a few of your harem this morning?
***
*Kristin snorts*
***
*Brennus gives them both a wry smile* I am na hungry at da moment, if dat is whah ye mean.
***
GD—I have a song for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vji-j9kMdhc Do you like it? Fitting, seeing as you can’t stay away from our good girl, Evie.
***
Kristin—Yeah, you delusional piece of…
* I start the song, cutting Kristin off. We jump up and dance like no one is watching– hands in the air & hip bumping & mumbling our way through the rap part like we know the words*
***
Brennus—*gives Kristin a bored look* I’ve watched dis Ye Tube video. In fact, Finn and I saw da explicit one wi’ da musicians in it. *laughs nefariously* Dey were singing of deir prowess wi’ da wans. ’Twas amusing. Normally, humans do na interest me atall because if I were ta expose dem ta me world, dey would cry and wet demselves. Finn suggested we blur deir lines even more and send Molly ta see dem. ’Twould be diverting ta discover whah parts of dem she could tear in two as she domesticates dem. She’s known ta get nasty even though she’s a good girl.
***
 
GD—My first question is something I’ve wanted to ask you for a long time. If you truly love Evie, then why is what she wants, I mean the fabulous Reed of course, not a factor? And please, don’t give us some bull about Evie not knowing what she wants. Part of loving someone is respecting their wishes.
***
Brennus—Whah lengths would ye go ta for love, Gabi, ta save yer love? ’Tis na an easy question. In yer world ye value choice—maybe ye’d respect someone’s decision ta do someting ridiculously foolish, even when ye believe ’twill result in her death. I pity ye. Ye see Reed as a viable option for Evie because, like her, ye’re blind ta his weaknesses. Ye see him as a champion—an aingeal. I see him quite differently. I see him as her Achille’s heel—da one who can na possibly protect her. He’s a Power wi’ no true power save whah he can do wi’ his fists or a sword. He’s da one who will destroy her, which is fine wi’ ye. Ye would have me respect her choice even at da cost o’ her life.
In me world, I had ta decide two tings: Do I love her? And am I in or am I out? Once I realized dat I do love her, well, it became extremely simple for me. She belongs wi’ me. She was made for me. She’s da first being in me undead existence who I can touch wi’out enthralling her. I’ll go ta every extreme ta protect her because I can na live if she’s destroyed…*he shakes his head with a grim expression*…and dere are many, many tings waiting ta banjax her.
***
Kristin—Is torture, abuse, and kidnapping part of love? And torturing those she cherishes a way to show that love?
***
GD—*nods in a knowing way* Yes, Brennus. Would you torture Finn’s love? Or anyone that meant something to any of the Fellas? And I’m not talking about the Harem you Undead feed off of and have your way with, and then burn their bodies like garbage.
*I throw my hand up, Kristin slaps me a high five*
***
Brennus—*sighs heavily* Yer version of love bores me. Ye see love in such a human way—in human terms. When ye say ye’ll love someone forever, ye do na mean it. Ye mean for a few decades—maybe a lifetime at da most, which is often less dan a century. And frequently, ye mean ye’ll love someone until it gets too difficult or until dey lose deir beauty or deir newness. Ye do na know how extremely rare ’tis ta find someone dat ye love deep in yer bones—in da marrow—a love dat ye crave more dan ye’ve craved anyting in yer life or yer death. Ye have no experience wi’ it. Ye have no sense of da love for which I speak.
Genevieve has taught me many tings about love. I admit dat I have na made all da right choices where she’s concerned. I’ve done tings wrong. But, ultimately, she has survived dem. Genevieve will forgive me for dese mistakes because she loves me. And I’ll protect her and dat love for da rest of me existence.
 
As for whah I will or will na do ta Finn’s love or ta da fellas, ’tis very simple, Kristin, and it goes back ta whah I was tellin’ ye earlier: am I in or am I out? *his eyebrows lower dangerously over his eyes* I am in. I’ll do whahever I have ta do ta protect Genevieve and make certain we’re together. Forever—and, unlike ye, I am aware of how long dat is.  
***
GD—There were a few moments after the battle that you were changed back to just a Faerie. You seemed… freed. Can you describe those few moments for us?
***
Kristin—*leans in and whispers in my ear* Who cares?
 
GD—We have friends that love him, Kristin. He probably touched them.
 
Kristin—*rolls her eyes* They wish.
Brennus—*he looks away from Gabi and Kristin* I tink for a few moments when Genevieve first touched me with her fire dat I glimpsed me soul once again. Da conquered part of me was freed of Sheol, ripped from it for jus a moment. Me soul saw how everyting in me death has been torn so deep…*his jaw tightens and he looks back at them*…but da fire took me soul over—he could na stay. I try na ta tink too much about it. Da dark can leap and fall upon ye if ye do. ’Twill tear ye apart at da seams if ye let it…but I’ll na let it.
***
GD– *wipes a tear and looks away from Brennus*
***
GD—You’ve been around for thousands of years. So have all the angels. I’m curious, how well you really know Tau, Evie’s father? Be honest. And what will you do if he succeeds with plans to use Evie against the Fallen?
***
Brennus—*watches Gabi as if she’s a toy* I’ve been entirely honest wi’ everyting I’ve told ye, ye jus do na like whah I have ta say. And jus because I’ve been around for forever and a day, does na mean dat I’ve cast me shadow upon Tau, or he upon me. ’Tis likely why we both still exist: we’ve never been formally introduced.
 
Whah I know of Tau are rumors and legends—nuting more. He’s a Divine aingeal. He wants ta do whah’s right. But, whah if right and wrong are one and da same? Eh?
*Brennus shrugs* If Tau plans ta use Genevieve against da Fallen, den he’s feeble-minded. Genevieve is a powerful craitur. She’ll na be easily manipulated or controlled. ’Tis Seraphim conceit dat will be his undoing. Genevieve once asked if dere was a cure for arrogance. Dere is; it’s called defeat.
 
***
GD—Russell is a nonissue, now that he has his own aspire. Who are you more threatened by, Reed or Xavier? Or better said, because you will dismiss that question entirely, which angel is more of a challenge for you?
***
Brennus—*lifts his eyebrow, arching it while he thinks* I make it a point na ta underestimate me opponents. I treat dem all as a threat, but ’tis very difficult when me opponents keep evolving new traits and powers. *smiles warily*
Truth ta tell, Da Other should logically be me only obstacle ta Genevieve’s heart, but he’s na. I don’t know why he has chosen ta bind himself ta da Throne, Anya, over his soul mate. I suspect ’twas na he who made da choice. Dis smacks of Genevieve—her self-sacrificing soul. I keep asking meself, ‘Who was Genevieve rescuing dis time? Was it da Power, Reed, or da Seraph, Xavier?’ Me money is on Reed who needed saving. Xavier is fairly bursting ta throttle her for it. ’Tis an enigma I intend ta solve…and when I do, I’ll make certain dat she’s da one who’s saved.

GD—We’ll admit—the fact that your knife from your Faerie home (that speaks to Evie), scares us a little. To us, this lends some validity to your claim that Evie is meant to be your queen. Is making Evie your queen worth her losing her soul?
***
Brennus—I won’t pretend dat Genevieve’s soul means nuting ta me. I tought once that I could let it go, let it fall. Dat’s no longer an option. Since Genevieve has changed me, I find da idea of losing her soul ta Sheol an unacceptable one. I’ll na lose even a piece of her ta dem. Genevieve has made me her God o’ War; I’ll protect her. Her soul is more important ta me dan recovering me own. Me queen will lose nuting; she’ll gain da kingdom she was born ta rule. Moin.

And so there it is. Everything (including the intro and contest description) was done BEFORE I got these interview questions back. What can I say? I am not forgetting all the atrocious things Brennus has done. Nor am I wanting him to end up with REED’s girl, Evie. BUT, folks, I can no longer hate on him as hard as I used to.
Oh Reed… *wipes another tear*
RW.2
In two days I will sing your praises on this blog like a proper team member.

Tomorrow we have a special treat! Want to get to know another vampire? One that was born to be an angel of death (in a good way).

Here’s a sneak peak

GD—I’m nervous about Lynch. All this time I thought he was a total psycho, incapable of real emotions, then… well, you know. *sigh* With the unfortunate turn of events do you think he will target Ellie?

Nicholas — *frost spreads from his fingertips down the arms of the chair* He wouldn’t dream of it.

Oh dear God… *closes eyes* He just did his frost thing in front of me! COMPOSE YOURSELF, GABI!

GD—Are you still planning a trip to Japan? If so, will you be staying with Ellie?

Nicholas — *Looks down, face darkening* Eliza has her plans to go, and nobody will stop her. And she’ll never be out of my sight, never again.

I have butterflies just reading this again!!

Now let’s talk about some badass chicks!

When coming up with ideas for this week of all things paranormal it occurred to me that, what the hell? I do nothing on the protagonists these books are centered around? That’s just wrong. So wrong.

I will admit that this post was the one slotted to be scratched if I ran out of time. Thank God my hypocrisy can remain with things like– talking about people who talk about people. And we can have some fun with these heroines we love and sometimes hate.

Badass thy name is Evie…

From the Premonition series by Amy Bartol.

Evie Claremont’s life changed forever the first time she felt the butterflies-in-the -tummy pull that drew her straight to Reed Wellington. She went from normal college freshman to healing unbelievably fast, super-human hearing, and she could outrun a train, ya know, like Superman. But Evie is no super hero. She’s a badass Serph Angel that holds the key to ending a war between the Fallen and Heaven. Only she has no clue until she sprouts her wings and discovers the Fallen are after her.

So is Brennus, a king of the undead, evil faeries (or fellas) that show up in  INTUITION (book #2) and never leave. Like a pimple that comes back every month. (yeah, I went there)

As Evie accepts who and what she is, she falls in love with Reed, discovers she has a soul mate (Russell), is betrayed by a friend none of us saw coming, is kidnapped repeatedly, tortured, hunted by her own kind, and through all this– our girl is NEVER the damsel in distress. Her ass is saved many times, but it is Evie who makes hard and fast decisions in the name of love, friendship and what is right.

Badass thy name is also Ruby…

Folks, holy crap. If you have not read Caged by Amber Lynn Natusch then do so. Now.

For the first 28 years of Ruby’s life she was blind. Until an attack in the woods left her parents dead and Ruby near death, naked, alone, and unconscious.

She woke with her sight, that took a backseat to her injuries and fear. Then this happened…

“I opened my eyes to a man. My breathing stopped short and I stared. I wasn’t aware of the movement of my arm until I could actually see my own hand touching his face in adoration. He was smiling at me. I closed my eyes and exploded his face with my hands as I’d done a million times to others throughout my life….”

That man was Sean. ❤

I wasn’t always down with Ruby’s choices, or her lack of being able to see what was so clear to me. BUT, this all stays true to who Ruby is. She led a sightless, sheltered, and closed off emotional life. This left her naive, and too trusting at times and not trusting enough at others. She uses humor as a defense mechanism, and her sarcastic attitude covers what she’s really feeling. I just love her.

Ruby is an empath who can sense other’s emotions. But that not the weirdest thing about her. Come to find out Ruby is something rare, so incredibly rare that she becomes a target. And before Ruby has time to digest any of it, and before Sean can figure out what to do, the unthinkable happens and our innocent Ruby suffers at the hands of her own kind. In ways that (thank God) the author didn’t drag us through.

But Ruby is strong, determined and yes, a total and complete badass. WHOOT!

That’s just in book #1. There are 5 more books in this series so far.

Badass thy nickname is Maggie…

From the Guardian Trilogy by Laury Falter

What if you had a gift to visit Heaven in your sleep? What would you do with it? Who would you see?

If you’re Magdalene Tanner you use it to help others by setting up a table in a park and offer to bring messages to people’s loved one.

You love her already, right? It gets better, way better. Miss Messenger is being watched, and feels a sense a dread closing in on her.

Enter Eran, guardian angel to Maggie. Turns out Maggie is the last messenger on Earth and she’s lived many lifetimes. So have her enemies, the Fallen. Maggie takes this news head on and sets out to destroy the Fallen. She trains hard and does her best to protect those she loves, including Eran whose sole purpose is to protect her.

On a swoon-worthy note: Maggie can visit former lives in Heaven through scrolls for each soul. And of course, Maggie does what any of us would do… she visits Eran!!! Oh God! It’s all so real and HE’S THERE waiting… always waiting for his girl!

Badassery thy name is Katy…

From the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Let’s just start off with this: Katy endures Daemon Black’s shirtless, pen-poking, taunting, Kitty-calling ass in a way that makes me want to nominate her for something official… like an award for the best poker face. Because if I lived next door to Daemon, you can bet your then-jealous ass I’d be all about it. Katy will take no one’s crap, is proud of who she is, and will stop at nothing to protect those she loves.

Katy moves to small town USA with her double shift working mom after her father’s death and ends up BFF’s with the sort of mysterious girl next door. Dee also has a twin brother, Daemon. Equally mysterious and a total jerk.

One near fatal mistake later and Katy finds out why. Daemon saves her life, but in doing so changes her life in an irreversible way. Where before she worried about making meals, normal teenage crap, reading books,  and blogging… Katy is throw into a world she should have never known existed and also, she’s glowing and moving things by thought. And now that she does, shit gets real– quick. Katy can’t control her new powers and trains her butt off. The first time Daemon and the rest of the Luxen see Katy tap into the “source”, they were just as awestruck as the rest of us.

In book #4, Origin, Daemon Black will burn down the world to save his girl. And Katy will stop at nothing to save herself.

Tomorrow is our interview with Brennus, you do not want to miss it! We’ll also have two more giveaways tomorrow– Yep, time to pick a team, folks.

We’ll also have some juicy teasers
