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!)

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. )

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

GIVEAWAY:

OPEN INTERNATIONALLY starts NOW! ends 1/26/14 at midnight EST

SIX EBOOKS!!!

Winner will recieve an ebook copy of:

Under Different Stars by Amy A Bartol

Vain by Fisher Amelie

Beauty From Pain by Georgia Cates

A Different Blue by Amy Harmon

Undertow by Amber Lynn Natusch

Trust in Me by J Lynn (Jennifer L Armentrout)

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.

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!!

See you all in the comments below! And good luck with all these giveaways! There will be a contest coming up soon *open internationally*!!
