I shouldn't have read this book now (in the middle of my school exams) but I just couldn't, wasn't strong enough, to resist.If my mother finds out that I was reading this book instead of preparing for my exams, she'll kill me.(Hope you keep my secret)

Avenging Angel (The Fallen #4)

By Cynthia Eden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



"He needed her to understand. In this world, she was the one thing he wanted.
The one thing that he’d kill to keep."
-Tanner

This book was I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E.It kept me up awake alomost all night but it was definitely woth it.

Avenging Angel tells the story of Tanner and Marna, characters that we previously saw at Angel in Chains.After brutally losing her wings, Marna realises that the touch, that every death angel possesses even when they fall, doesn't work for her.What she doesn't realise is that she is being "stalked" by a very determined shifter.

Meet Tanner.Tanner despite not having had an easy life, he tries to make it up to her.They all think that he's just a killer, an animal without qualms.But this cannot be further than the truth.Marna makes him want to be better.She brings out the best of him.Tanner is the kind of man who will do anything to protect what he treasures the most.He's very alpha in nature and intense in anything he does.Above all, though, he's a man who just found his mate.

Marna isn't your average angel.She may have never liked her "job" but she never wanted to be bound to earth, unable to ever reach heaven again.She is a fighter though.Marna is a strong character because despite eveything that she went through, she still strives to make something of this life she was forced to live.All she wants is to eliminate the threat and find her happily ever after with the man she loves above anything else.Even heaven can't keep them apart...

Cynthia Eden is a wonderful author and I can't say how much I love and admire her works.This book is bound to astonish you.Be prepared.There are many twist and turns, so nothing goes as we expect them to go and the danger is there, threatening to destroy them all.

Furthermore, the secondary characters were great as well.We get to see Sam and Seline, I loved each and every scene they were present.Bastion, a death angel, was also one who made many appearances along with Kody, Tanner's brother.Hope they both get their own story, especially Bastion since the last time we saw him, he dropped a bombshell.

To sum up, although I just finished the book all I want to do is re-read it.I absolutely recommend it, even if you haven't read the previous books (which I think you should).I can't wait to read the next book in the series and while we wait for it let me just say that in the end of the book there's a sneak peek of what Cynthia is working right now on, Burn For Me , book one in the new Phoenix Shifter series, coming in February 2014!I Wish I could time travel into the future....

But until then, here's a little teaser:

“You smell like fucking candy…”

Synopsis (From GoodReads):


With a messed up family background and a tendency to grow claws and fangs, Tanner Chance isn’t exactly the boy next door. But he’s a decent cop, and he keeps himself on the side of the good guys. Convenient, because when he rescues a survivor of a horrific shifter attack he finds himself instantly smitten—with an honest-to-goodness angel, as innocent as she is irresistible.

Marna may be angelic, but she’s not stupid or weak. She can take care of herself. Tanner is more temptation than protection anyway. Or so she thinks, until someone wearing her face starts taking out some of New Orleans’ more unsavory paranormals. With police and predators both gunning for her blood, Marna has no choice but to trust Tanner…even though what’s sparking between them is hotter than anything holy.

Fire By Heather James & Giveaway

Posted on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 2:31 PM

Hi guys....

I just found out this book and I wanted to share it with you...


Synopsis:


Is control over the elements a gift, or a curse?

Roxy thinks that she is in control of everything: with flames flaring at her fingertips and an equally fiery attitude, what more could she need? But then she meets Brae, a prince from a rival Realm, who turns her assumptions of superiority upside down.

Jasmine has none of Roxy’s confidence or intensity. But she does have a secret - and Brae - and she’s not going to give either up willingly.

Here's an excerpt:


Fire rose high into the trees on either side of me, closing in much faster than I'd anticipated. The air was thick with heat and smoke. I had to keep moving, fast. My heart hammered against my chest, keeping time with my feet as they pounded across the uneven ground. Above me, both suns hung high in the air, shining down mercilessly and adding more heat to that of the blaze.
I heard, rather than saw, the ball of flames whizzing through the air behind me, branches crackling to dust as it went. Moving on instinct, I threw myself to the ground, feeling the gritted earth graze my already filthy face and arms.

Only one thought ran through my mind: they were getting closer.

I pushed myself to my feet and set off again, faster than before. As I ran, I pushed a loose strand of hair - as red as the inferno surrounding me - away from my face. It had fallen out of its tie hours ago, but I hadn't stopped for long enough to fix it.

The flames kept coming, attacking me from both sides so that I had to duck and weave as I went. As I darted right, my feet stumbled on the uneven terrain. I couldn't keep this up for much longer; I needed to stand and fight.

"Come on then. I'm ready for you," I whispered to myself as I came to a stop. I wheeled around just in time to see a cloaked figure emerge from the trees to my left. The cloak gleamed with glittering red swirls that made it look as though it were aflame.

Where there should have been a face, I saw nothing but darkness.

Slowly, the figure raised his hands out towards me, toying with me; he thought I was beat. Flames sprung up at his fingertips and danced across his hands, gradually increasing in intensity.

But he was being complacent. He was nowhere close to winning this fight. While he put on his pyrotechnics show, my own fingertips burst into flames, burning faster and fiercer. Before he realised what was happening, I cast my hands out in front of me, sending a ball of fire straight at his chest. Thrown back by the force of the hit, he lay on the ground, motionless.

One down, two to go.

The flare receded from my fingers but the tingling sensation lingered; I was ready to attack as soon as I needed. Bending over the unconscious figure I pulled a shining silver ring from the index finger of his left hand. Shoving it into my pocket I set off again, but this time I headed left, in the direction the cloaked figure had emerged from.

I'd had enough of being hunted.

The Year of the Great Seventh By Teresa Orts

The Year of the Great Seventh

By Teresa Orts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




"You own me an explanation .Tomorrow, 6 p.m. at my place .Don't get excited. Dad will be home, watching your moves"

Sophie and Nate aren't your average teenagers.

Although, it's their junior year at high school, Sophie has already set a goal and she's determined to achieve it no matter the cost.
Meet Nate Werner. Nate comes from money and it shows .Nate isn't Prince Charming but he's definitely devastatingly gorgeous. Behind the beauty ,though, lies the monster. You see, Nate's "cursed". Apparently, the curse is carried in the bloodline. It's passed on the youngest in the bloodline when the older dies. Nate thinks that the curse cannot be broken until he meets Sophie. Together they go through an adventure to find the "cure" before their time runs out. The clock is ticking....

I enjoyed the book. I liked the fact that in the beginning of the book Nate is a mystery to us and later when the book progresses we learn bits and pieces about his life and we understand why he was so secretive and hostile against Sophie. They were both such strong characters.

I liked the secondary characters as well. Her friends, Megan, Emma and Tyson were very loyal to her.

However, I hated Nate's family. All of them. Not only his parents who were inexcusable but also his cousin, Preston.

All in all, I loved the book. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen .And just let me tell you this "The book is a cliffhanger.The Year of the Great Seventh is a romance-mystery book filled with Egyptian history/mythology. It's bound to intrigue you. I totally recommend it!

Looking forward to reading the sequel. Hope it comes out soon...

*Thank you Teresa for giving me the opportunity to read your book!

Synopsis:

Sophie has always felt out of step—an outsider, even amongst friends in her high school with all the hype about celebrity culture. Her life in L.A. seems to have been already written for her, but when her junior year starts, it all takes a drastic turn. When she crosses paths with the school's heartthrob, Nate Werner, they fall for each other in a way neither can understand. What they don’t know is that by giving in to their desires, they are unlocking an ancient Egyptian prophecy that threatens to return Earth to the dark ages.

To undo the curse, Nate and Sophie embark on an adventure that takes them across the country. But their quest is not only to save the world as they know it. It is also a fight for their very survival. Behind the scenes, there are those that are counting on them to fail.

Cover Reveal & Author Interview

Posted on Monday, May 6, 2013 2:12 PM
2
Today I have the fabulous Teresa Orts on the blog!Welcome to Sofialovesreading Teressa! She is the author of  The Year of the Great Seventh  and  its upcoming sequel.

Her Bio:

Unlike most authors, I didn’t start writing books when I was five years old. In fact, I’d never been too interested in reading or writing. Hanging out with friends in the small Spanish town where I grew up always seemed more appealing than anything a book could offer. It took about twenty-seven years and a global financial meltdown for me to discover the magic world of writing.

At the time, I was living in New York City, and one morning I discovered I was no longer expected at my sixty-hour-a-week investment banking job. Most of my friends had very demanding jobs, so I spent my days wandering around on my own.

Like other unemployed people, I started living through the nights and sleeping through the days. New York is known as the city that never sleeps for a good reason! One night, tired of surfing the web and watching TV, I opened a Word document and started typing a short story, which I saved in my computer with little interest.That was the day Nate and Sophie were born.
Days later, since the financial industry seemed to be going into a downward spiral, I decided to spend three months traveling through Southeast Asia and New Zealand. I thought, naïve me, that by the time I returned, the financial crisis would have come to an end.

Something really strange happened to me during that trip. No matter where I went, I couldn’t stop thinking about the story. Nate and Sophie followed me everywhere. No matter how hard I tried to forget about them, they just wouldn’t go away. At the beginning, I thought I was losing my mind, but soon after, I realized I had to continue writing the story.

When I came back to New York, I went right back into it, and that’s how The Year of the Great Seventh was created. Unfortunately, halfway through the novel, I received a letter from the immigration department informing me that, with no job, I was no longer welcome in the United States. Without much of a choice, my boyfriend and I decided to pack our lives, along with my half-drafted manuscript, and begin another exciting adventure in London, where we now live.

Interview:


 Where are you from? 

I was born and raised in a small town in the outskirts of Valencia, Spain, but I’ve been living in New York and London for the last 12 years.

2. When and why did you begin writing?

It was really by pure chance. I had never, in my life, written any fiction until one day, when I was twenty-seven, out of boredom I started typing into a Word document. As soon as I wrote the first sentence, I couldn’t stop…and I haven’t ever since.

3. What inspired you to write your first book?

That first short story I wrote that night. The characters felt so real in my mind that I felt the urge to discover what was going to happen to them.

4. How did you come up with the title?

It was actually quite difficult. I wanted to find a title that didn’t mean anything at first, but when you read the novel, it fell into place. At first, it was called “Beneath the Oak Tree of Gienne”, but I changed the title last minute to “The Year of the Great Seventh.” Both titles are quotes from the book, which play an important part in the plot! You may need to read the novel to know exactly what I mean….

5. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

More than a message, I hope that this novel would take people away from their real lives into the world of fantasy. It’d be nice if Nate and Sophie’s story was a breather from people’s day-to-day worries. A means of escape.

6. Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Not really. Sophie and Nate have characteristics from people who have passed through my life, but they are not any specific person. Some of the settings in the book, mostly the ones in New York, are from places I know well.

7. What are your current projects?

Promoting “The Year of the Great Seventh.” It is quite intense at the moment…I’d say it has literally taken over my life…but I am enjoying every minute of it. It’d be nice to have some time for writing, but I guess that I’ll have to wait until after the book release.

8. Who designed the cover?

Keryn Christiansen from Pixeldust, New Zealand.

9. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

The editing process. Once you type “The End”, you think…uh! I’m finished! But that it’s not really the case. That is when the real work starts. You have to go through the entire novel and try to polish each corner. It is quite tedious and time-consuming, but it is unfortunately necessary.

10. Do you have any advice for other writers?

Most people focus on getting their novel published, and only when they do, they realize that the best part of the entire process is getting lost in your imagination…writing the novel.

11. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I did my very best, so I hope people enjoy the novel.

Thanks so much for joining us today, Teressa!




The Year of the Great Seventh

Expected publication: July 6th 2013 by Drayton Press

Synopsis:

Sophie has always felt out of step—an outsider, even amongst friends in her high school with all the hype about celebrity culture. Her life in L.A. seems to have been already written for her, but when her junior year starts, it all takes a drastic turn. When she crosses paths with the school's heartthrob, Nate Werner, they fall for each other in a way neither can understand. What they don’t know is that by giving in to their desires, they are unlocking an ancient Egyptian prophecy that threatens to return Earth to the dark ages.

To undo the curse, Nate and Sophie embark on an adventure that takes them across the country. But their quest is not only to save the world as they know it. It is also a fight for their very survival. Behind the scenes, there are those that are counting on them to fail.

Here's an excerpt:


 Admitting I wasn’t going to fall asleep, I emerged from under the bed covers, went over to the windows, and sat on the floor. They say if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Well, if the city lights were going to keep me awake, I might as well enjoy the view. 

 Crossing my legs in the lotus position, I admired the city skyline. The other glass tower across from us seemed to be private apartments. Most of the floors had their lights on. The energy of this city was captivating. Life continued on through the night in the city that never slept.
 
 It was starting to snow. The frosty flakes resembled white cotton candy. They seemed to be defying the laws of gravity as they were suspended on the air and then swirled up into the sky. It was probably due to the air current caused by the tall buildings. But as things stood in my life at the moment, anything seemed possible.

 The traffic was as dense as rush hour in downtown L.A. Cars jammed around Columbus Circle, and no one thought twice about leaning on the horn, even though it was past midnight.

 In one of the apartments opposite, a man was sitting by the window, typing on a laptop. The room was dark, but the reflection of the computer screen lit up his face. I could see him clearly. It was as though we were sitting across from each other. I was sure he could see me, too. We were so close, but at the same time, so far. This must be the big city syndrome where you can feel so alone amongst so many people. And knowing that Nate was just across the wall only enhanced the feeling.

 I had to start blocking any thoughts of Nate. I had to give myself a break or I was going to start losing my mind. Unfortunately, I was aware that ignoring a problem wasn’t likely to make it go away. I couldn’t believe Nate had planned to hide the stain on his back from me. How long did he think he could pretend everything was going to be fine?

 Dad taught me to only believe what could be proved by science, but this lulled me into a state of denial. Nate was vanishing with the tick of the clock, and I had to help him. I wasn’t sure how yet, but I couldn’t fail him. I wanted to slap myself to throw myself into action. How could I be so passive when I was losing the only thing I wanted?

 The man in the apartment across from me was drinking from a cup and flicking through the pages of a book that he had next to the laptop. After scanning a few more pages, he continued to type. I wondered what he was doing. I wanted to think he was writing a detective novel based in 1950s Manhattan.

 The man stopped typing and stared openly at me, as if he also needed to share his secrets with a stranger. It was snowing hard, and thousands of snowflakes playfully spiraled up into the sky, proving reality had many dimensions. The simple stare from a distant stranger was appeasing that loneliness that was taking hold of me.

 I couldn’t stop staring back. Here, sitting on the floor of this grandiose room, in the epicenter of the madness of this city, I just felt so small. How was I, this tiny, fragile girl, going to make the world change its course?

 The man with the computer—as if he could hear my thoughts—smiled at me and nodded. Without uttering a word, and with the power of our surroundings, this stranger confirmed that, yes, I could do whatever I gave myself to. It was probably a coincidence, but there were moments like this when the universe conspired to prove that life was full of magic moments. You just needed to learn to see past what was in front of you.

 The man went back to typing on his computer, unconscious that with just one stare he’d provided me with the courage I lacked. I was beginning to fall in love, but in this case, with New York City. There was something about the anonymity of this city that brought us closer as humans.

Thomas & January By Fisher Amelie

Thomas & January (Sleepless #2)

By Fisher Amelie

My rating: 3 of 5 stars




It's 3,5 Stars actually!

“Discover why you’re important, then refuse to settle for anyone who doesn’t completely agree.” - Thomas

The second book in the Sleepless series.I soooooooo loved the first one and I thought that this was going to be similar to the first one but apparently I was beyond wrong.The book wasn't so bad it was the whole whining thing that got on my nerves.

Thomas and January are so alike yet so different.They both loved music.Lived for it.

Thomas left NY and settled down to Austin because his heart was broken.A former musician he has now become a music scout.I was pretty shocked to see Thomas so moody.He has changed so much since the first book and it's very obvious.

Moving on.Thomas and January meet accidentally in a concert where they "accidentally " kiss. Afterwards, Thomas is such a j*** still fighting his emotions in order not to be hurt again.In the same concert his boss discovers January's talent as a scout and hires her immediately.Despite working for the same company, Thomas and January don't meet each other for a few months until Thomas is forced to travel to Europe to scout for new talent and January is to escort him.

I liked the book.It was quite enjoyable with a nice setting and flow.However, the end was predictable with much drama involved.I felt like they were adolescents most of the time and not adults!

Furthermore, in this book we encounter characters from the first book and I really liked that.I love seeing characters from previous books.It's so refreshing learning what has happened to them after their book ended.

All in all, it's a worth reading book and I certainly recommend it!

Synopsis:

Thomas Eriksson thinks he has it all figured out.

"People crossed the street when they saw me. I’m not really sure why that was. I mean, okay, I might have looked a bit intimidating if I was being truthful with you. I’d changed since New York. New York represented a life that wasn’t real, not truthfully, anyway. No, New York was the “young, immature, in love, idiot" side of Tom. The “Tie-Dye Tom of New York City” didn’t exist anymore. Tie-Dye Tom was dead."

January Mac Lochlainn thinks she’s her own worst enemy.

"I quit Berkeley. Threw away a full scholarship. Plans, you ask? What plans?"

But they’re both wrong.

***
Tom approached me slowly and met me under the light on the stone walkway. He leaned over me so closely, my neck craned to see his face. His expression was one of confusion as he studied my own.

“What is it about you?” he asked me.

I gulped. “What do you mean?” I whispered, closing my eyes and swallowing again, my breaths becoming labored.

He lifted his hand and dragged the backs of his fingers across my jaw so lightly I barely felt them, but they made me feel dizzy all the same.

“How can you be this extraordinary, January MacLochlainn?” He leaned closer, a look of pure frustration and anger lit his eyes and pressed his lips. “And why couldn’t I have met you before I realized I didn’t want anyone...ever?”

Life for Thomas and January will never be the same again...whether they like it or not.
