Dark Promise – Julia Crane and Talia Jager


dark promiseRylie seems like any other 15 year old girl. She has great parents, a best friend for life and her boyfriend, Adam. Rylie has a secret that even she doesn’t know.  She’s a fairy — that’s right — pointy ears and fluttering wings. She finds out this secret the night before her sixteenth birthday. Not only is she a fairy, but she has special powers that someone else wants. That’s a lot for a teenage girl to comprehend.

Suddenly, the fairy world becomes all too real when Rylie is kidnapped by the king of the dark fairies. She is taken to his castle and told she must marry his son, Kallan, or die.

Dark Promise shows us an entirely new world, hidden away in our midst. Fairies live among us, cloaked in glamour. Their realm exists in an around our own, and we are completely unaware. Authors Julia Crane and Talia Jager create a completely believable world, separate and yet part of, our own.

Rylie (Oleander – her fairy name) is a strong willed, intelligent girl. She has no knowledge of the fairy world, but leans all she can of it when held in the dark king’s castle.

I enjoyed this book very much. It’s not just for teens, adults will enjoy the story too. The main characters are well fleshed out. The dialogue is varied and fun, bringing readers into the conversation. The authors create a fantasy world that is mysterious, but believable.

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Bimbo Scorned


over her dead body coverOver Her Dead Body by Karen Vaughan

Laura Hamilton’s fiance, Gerry, calls her a corpse magnet. Even if he is the one to find poor Ethel’s body, he still blames Laura.

Working part time as assistant building super and full time as manager of the Moose Burger Emporium, Laura’s life is full. Unfortunately, dead bodies cross her path and she can’t resist the urge to solve the murder.

Over Her Dead Body is the second book in Vaughan’s Laura & Gerry series. Funny and light hearted, it’s also a murder mystery that keeps fans on the edge of their seats until the end.

Vaughan’s funny, sarcastic dialogue peppers the pages as the story revs up and drives onward. Her characters are wacky, dapper, sophisticated, slutty, raving lunatics or all around nice guys.

Over Her Dead Body will keep you laughing all the way to the morgue.
