Genre: Science Fiction

 Jason Conners is the last person you’d expect to run into a burning building, unless of course there was something inside worth stealing. Call him what you want: criminal, thief, asshole, but hero? Absolutely not. Jason’s questionable behavior and disturbing antics can only be attributed to one secret.

He can change the future, but with great power comes great responsibility? Hell no. His ability makes him the best thief in the city, and nothing is off-limits. Until Jason’s carefree attitude gains the attention of the Rogues, and the government.

The Rogues want him to stop catastrophic events from taking place, and the government has their own agenda. When the hunt begins, Jason is caught in the crosshairs and learns that breaching is not as limitless as he thought.

Can this anti-hero give up a life of easy money and become the savior the Rogues need, or will it cost him everything—even his immortality?

BREACHERS by Anthony Thomas

                                             ***Excerpt from Chapter 29***

I’ve been arrested a few times in my life, never for more than a misdemeanor or two, but that’s because they can’t seem to catch me doing worse. It’s an occupational hazard you learn to accept when you spend your nights involved in things some would refer to as criminal activities. I call that shit surviving, but the boys in blue don’t exactly share my opinion. If I sat down and wrote out a list of all the jobs I pulled over the years… well, I doubt I’d ever see sunlight again.

The inkpad, square and mushy, coats my thumb, and I stamp it down on the page. It’s always the same thing with these people. Paperwork, prints, and pictures. Then you sit in a room or urine-scented drunk tank for hours before they tell you anything or let you make the infamous phone call. Wilson wouldn’t answer anyway; he knows the drill, but fuck, I may need some help this time.

I follow a blue line into a hallway, and it leads me to a flashing room. “I’m ready for my glamour shot.”

“Shut up,” demands the officer from behind, and pushes me through the doorway.

I line up on an X at the center and stare at the camera lens. The girl behind it is far too attractive to be working here. Smooth, golden-brown skin, black hair pulled in a bun, and gorgeous emerald eyes. I can’t seem to read the nameplate next to her badge, plus I find it difficult to peel my gaze off her face anyway.

The man standing to the side, on the other hand, fits right in. The hair above his receding hairline slicks backward and tiny ears hang off his pumpkin-shaped face. The uniform’s collar strangles one of his many chins, like the top button could pop any second. His nameplate, a bit thicker than hers, reads Bisner. He hands me a placard and I do my best to hold it near my chest.

“You look familiar.” I raise my brow. “Did you use to work at the club off Ninth?”

She chokes down a lump in her throat and avoids looking me in the eyes. The officer next to her tilts his head, shrugs, and faces forward.

“Hold on, let me think. Athena? No. That’s not right.”

“Shut up, inmate,” Officer Bisner bellows.

“Cinnamon…?”

She blushes and hides her face behind the computer screen. She lifts her hand in the air and motions for me to stay still. “Three, two, one.”

“Achoo.” I force out a sneeze as the light flashes and spit sprays in the air like window cleaner. “Oh, shit. Can we retake that one? I think my eyes were closed. And can we do a different background? This grey color isn’t working for me. Oh, how about a picnic scene, Cinnamon?”

She rolls her eyes and raises her hand again. “Three, two—”

“Wait, wait. I want you to photograph me like one of your French girls,” I say, extending the placard with a seductive gaze. “Wearing this. And only this.”

Boy of Blood By Megan O’Russell

✨Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing

✨Series: Girl of Glass

✨Genre: YA Dystopia

✨Release Date: April 10, 2018

Summary

After Nightland’s vicious attack on the domes, the safety and perfection of the world within the glass has been contaminated. Desperate to rebuild, outsiders are allowed into the domes to help, breaking the cardinal rule: outsiders and Domers must always be separated. But the city is in shambles, crumbling into chaos without the Vampers of Nightland to keep order, and one name is carried on the wind: Nola.

Clinging to Jeremy, Nola struggles to find a way to exist in the domes, turning her back on all she learned in the city. But when one of the outsiders brings the dark secrets of the domes to light, the line between survival and murder blurs against the spectre of the dying world.

Can Nola follow the dark path laid out by the Domes? Will the dangers of the night become her new sanctuary?

I rated Boy of Blood  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (4 1/2 stars out of 5)

Note: Boy of Blood is book two(2) in the Girl of Glass series

This book picks up just where it’s predecessor left off. Offering all the fast-paced, plot twists and drama expected of the series, Boy of  Blood delivers as anticipated!

Set in a dystopian world, society is separated into the fortunate dome dwellers and the disadvantaged outsiders. The protagonist Nola grapples with consequences of the difficult decisions she made in book one(1). In addition to the loss of her blissful oblivion, her choices cost her the love of someone dear. Through the book she slowly begins to pick up the pieces to embrace the potential of a new interest. #teamJeremy

Author Megan O’Russell succeeds at building a strikingly vivid world that just comes alive with multidimensional characters and plots. I enjoyed her writing style. Much more, I enjoyed how cohesive the story was in bringing the plots together.

Boy of Blood will find a place in the heart of readers of many genres including dystopian fiction, young adult novels or for the adventure buffs.

BOY OF BLOOD by Megan O’Russell

Excerpt from Chapter Nineteen

“Jeremy.” His name came out as a whisper through her tears. “Jeremy!”

He was running toward her house. His stride long and even. Blood and dirt marked his uniform, but relief brightened his face as soon as he saw her.

Scrambling back over the roof, Nola dropped over the edge and through her window, all pain forgotten as Jeremy’s heavy boots pounded up the stairs.

“Nola, are you hurt?” The words were out of his mouth before he was in her room, but she didn’t answer. She had already thrown herself into his arms and was kissing him with everything she possessed.

Explosions and blood melted away. Death and fear didn’t matter. Jeremy was alive and holding her.

The room didn’t sway, and she didn’t want it to. She wanted to hold on tighter, to pull herself closer so no one would ever be able to separate them again. There was no more her or him. No difference between them at all.

His fingers found skin at her waist and drifted up her back. She gasped at the warmth of his touch, craving more. Her heart raced as he hungrily grasped her side with his hand. Suddenly, her shirt became a hateful thing, another horrible barrier between them. Nola eased her hold on him only enough to reach for the edge of her shirt but as soon as she moved, Jeremy was there pulling it off for her.

Blood rose to her cheeks not with embarrassment, but anticipation. He let go of her for a moment to take off his heavy guard’s vest. But that brief moment felt like an eternity. Like he would fall away from her completely.

She pulled herself closer to him. Kissing him again as though trying to prove he was still alive. With only his thin guard’s shirt between them she could feel his heart racing against her. The taste of him, the feel of his heat radiating through her, washing away all the cold fear that filled her.

“Nola,” Jeremy whispered, and her heart soared. He wasn’t saying a name, but a prayer that they would always be together. That he would always hold her tight, and the demons of the outside world would never again come between them.

Fingers trembling, Nola undid the buttons of his shirt, letting her chest press to his. She slid his shirt away without looking.

In one movement that made her heart fly from her chest, Jeremy scooped her into his arms and carried her to the bed. Laying her down gently, he gazed at her. His brown eyes smiling down at her. She reached for him, pulling him closer. The light from the sunrise shone through the window, casting an orange light on Jeremy’s bare chest. A red mark glistened on his arm.

Cover Reveal & REVIEW: To Discover A Divine(Rise Of The Stria Book 1) By Tessa McFionn

to discover a divine
Fiery Seas Publishing
March 20, 2018
Sci-Fi Romance

When Kahlym cal Jhuen, freedom-fighting leader of the Chandar Stria, breaks into a prison ship controlled by the Rimmarian Thrall, he only expected to rescue two of his crew. But when he discovers a terrified female during his escape, he is immediately captivated by her unique beauty and makes a snap decision to take her with him. However, his good deed backfires when he learns he has stolen the Thrall Emperor’s prize.

Down to her last dollar, Evainne Wagner expected nothing out of the ordinary when she stepped out of her Boston apartment. Instead, she found herself in the middle of an intergalactic firefight, complete with strange soldiers with deadly weapons pointed directly at her. Salvation arrives in the nick of time in the form of a mysterious leather-clad warrior, skidding in and whisking her away. Trusting her heart, she follows, hoping to find answers as well as a way home.

Safely on board his ship, he learns more about her and her rare skills, triggering the memory of a half-forgotten prophecy spoken at the time of his cursed birth. Outcast because of a cruel twist of fate, he finds unexpected acceptance, even affection, from his new passenger.

Could she be the one who holds the future of his people, as well as his own heart, in her tender hands?

*Note: Thank you to Fiery Seas Publishing for the free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review (posted below).*

I gave To Discover A Divine (Rise of the Stria Book 1) a very sound 4 out of 5 stars in the SciFi Romance genre. 

In what was supposed to be the straight forward prison break of his crew members , Kahlym’s plans quickly go sideways. Caught in the middle of all the melee is a civilian (gorgeous no less). In an unexpected gutsy move she saves his life- meaning that for royal outcast Kahlyn, this beauty now holds his blood debt. 

Things aren’t exactly hunky dory for the civilian Evainne Wagner. The shit hit the fan big time! She literally walks out of her mundane life right into a dream or perhaps it’s a nightmare? Yikes! Thrust into an alien world, she struggles to find answers but don’t be mistaken, Evainne is no damsel in distress. 

Flames of passion are blazing between Kahlyn and his ziat’xahn” (little one) but his foul-mouthed, sassy guest is so much more than he could have imagined. Evainne, his Earthly civilian romance is also a Divine Healer and the key to his destiny.  

To Discover A Divine is intergalactic magic. It is fun, engaging and filled with action right from the very beginning.  Author Tessa McFionn provides an exquisitely detailed alien world and allows us to be awed along with Evainne. I have a deep appreciation for the headstrong, saucy spunk that Evainne’s character unapologetically brings to the story.

This an action packed sci-fi adventure with an abundance of hot under the collar romance. It will get you invested in Kahlyn, Evainne and their crew, and leave you positively ravenous for the next installment in the series!
