#BlogTour for #Mystical by Michael Weekly

Mystical (Mystical, #1)
Release Date: 12/08/15
Limitless Publishing
240 pages
Summary from Goodreads:
When Eliza Rose found out she
was a witch, she thought she’d be casting spells…
However, it turns out Eliza is on her way to becoming a mystical assassin. But
first she has to start college with her best friend Dawn Roberts and her feline
familiar Jared. If you think college is stressful, try finding your best friend
being seduced—nearly to death—by a venomous fairy. Something is horribly wrong,
and Eliza must find out what it is.

Knowing who’s who in the Mystical world can be a burden—or save her life…

Murderous mermaids, seductive fairies, and manipulative elves are terrifying
enough, but pure witches can become corrupt…and they’re the most dangerous
creatures of all. Eliza struggles to discover the source of this chaos, but is
repeatedly attacked—and saved by a shadowy figure. On a very personal note,
Eliza must learn whether corruption is beginning to claim her mother.

Her strongest ally might be handsome, enigmatic Donovan—but he is hiding a
shocking secret…

Donovan wants nothing to do with his old gang—not after the things they’d made
him do. But when he meets Eliza, he’s both frustrated by her amateur skills and
impressed by her emerging strength, and he feels compelled to help her grow
into the assassin she’s meant to be.

Every answer has a price, and there are beings born to corrupt the pure.

Eliza fights to master her skills before it’s too late, while Donovan must
determine whether Eliza can be saved…or if she must die to keep her out of the
hands of those who would use her powers to reign over all of Mystical.

Rising Ridge
by Alexa Jacobs
Release Date: October 30th 2015

Summary from Goodreads;

Olivia Reynolds was free. Twenty years old, living in New York City, and having absolutely no idea what she wanted to be when she grew up, every day would be an adventure, or at least that was the plan. When a phone call from her brother lands her back in her home town, and dealing with an unexpected tragedy, she comes face to face her brother’s best friend Dean and realizes that the feelings she had buried long ago were still there. Dean Winston has lived with the fact that Olivia walked out of his life two years ago, and was never coming back. With her back in town, he struggles to be the friend that she needs him to be, and not the lover that she once wanted him to be. With lines between childhood friends and secret lovers once again blurring, Olivia must decide between the possibilities of her future and the ties of her past. Some strings just refuse to be cut.

Alexa JacobsAbout the Author

Alexa Jacobs was born and raised in the suburban outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland. She met her husband through friends in high school, and began what turned out to be a short lived career in the financial industry. With her first child, she became a stay at home parent and threw all of her energy into becoming the queen of Pinterest before Pinterest was a thing.

When her second child headed off to kindergarten, Alexa thought that it was time for a career change.

After a decade with at least one child underfoot 24 hours a day, it was time for her to discover who she was going to be when she grew up.

Turns out, she was a mom who sat by the window and cried the entire day on that first day of “freedom” from early parenthood.

A few months, and many kindergarten volunteer days later, she sat down at the computer and dusted off the rough draft of a story she had crafted years ago. That draft turned into her debut book, Rising Ridge.

Alexa is a member of the Romance Writers of America, and participates in many writer circle groups.

Stop by and see the Cover Reveal for Pixelated by L.S. Murphy

Pixelated by L.S. Murphy
Release Date: 06/30/15
Bloomsbury Spark
Summary from Goodreads:
Senior Year. 
Middle of nowhere. 

What’s the new girl to do?

For Piper Marks, the answer is simple. She’s determined to have her photography
rock the cover of National Geographic someday, and moving to Clarkton, Iowa for
her last year of high school is not going to stop her. Even if her usual subjects
have changed from bright lights and skyscrapers to fields, cows…and more
fields. 
But when photographer at the local paper quits in a huff, she steps into his
spot. Her new job keeps Piper busy capturing tackles, and zooming in on first
downs and end zone dances, not to mention putting her directly in the path of
varsity football star Les Williams IV. Her new friends warn her off, but she
can’t resist the pull she feels toward this mysterious country boy. But this
small town is keeping a secret, and it’s one that could destroy any chance they
have to be together. 
It’s up to Piper to decide what to do with the distorted truth. Can she risk
exposing her heart? It might be worth it, ’cause Les is about to change her
world from black and white to fully saturated color. 
Praise
for Pixelated:

“In Pixelated, L.S. Murphy weaves a complex web of secrets and lies with a
‘will they or won’t they’ romance that kept me turning pages and holding my
breath!” ~ Julie Reece, author of The Artisans and Crux“Beautifully written, with a full spectrum of emotion and complex
characters, Pixelated will tug at all your heartstrings. I easily lost myself
in the world L.S. Murphy created and couldn’t stop reading because I needed to
see how the story ended.” ~ Kelly Oram, author of Cinder & Ella

“L.S. Murphy brings something for every reader with Pixelated: romance,
secrets, mystery, and a main character torn between two choices. Murphy’s
writing is sharp and steeped in emotions, deftly hooking her readers from the
first sentence to the last.” ~ Sarah Bromley, author of A Murder Of
Magpies 

About
the Author
L.S. Murphy obsesses about St. Louis Cardinals baseball, fangirls over her favorite
authors, and watches every episode of Doctor Who like it’s the first time. When
she’s not doing those time-consuming things, the former farm-girl turned city
slicker turned suburbanite writes sweet romances for teens and adults.

Cover reveal for The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly

The Foxglove Killings by Tara Kelly 

Release Date: 09/01/15

Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:

Gramps always said that when the

crickets were quiet, something bad was coming. And the crickets have been as

silent as the dead. It started with the murdered deer in the playground with

the unmistakable purple of a foxglove in its mouth. But in the dying boondock

town of Emerald Cove, life goes on.

I work at Gramps’s diner, and the

cakes―the entitled rich kids who vacation here―make our lives hell. My best

friend, Alex Pace, is the one person who gets me. Only Alex has changed. He’s

almost like a stranger now. I can’t figure it out…or why I’m having

distinctly more-than-friend feelings for him. Ones I shouldn’t be having.

Then one of the cakes disappears.

 

When she turns up murdered, a

foxglove in her mouth, a rumor goes around that Alex was the last person seen

with her—and everyone but me believes it. Well, everyone except my worst enemy,

Jenika Shaw. When Alex goes missing, it’s up to us to prove his innocence and

uncover the true killer. But the truth will shatter everything I’ve ever known

about myself—and Alex.

katherine hurleyAbout the Author
I’m Katherine Hurley, author of The Griever’s Mark series. Book 1 will be out in November 2014 and Book 2 in spring of 2015.

My love of myth and legend led me inexorably into fantasy, and I have no intention of leaving. Ever. I grew up riding horses and finally, finally, finally have one of my very own. (I’m hoping Astarti will get some quality horse time at some point, but Drifters don’t really need horses. Hmm.) I’m also an avid (but amateur!) mountain biker and whitewater kayaker.

I was born in New Mexico, grew up in Kansas, got my MFA in Michigan, and now live in West Virginia. The most beautiful place I’ve ever been is New Zealand.

My **spoiler-free** thoughts on The Griever’s Mark  

I have to admit The Griever’s Mark had a slow start for me. There were so many descriptions early on that I felt a bit bogged down… and the Drift was a tough concept. Fatigue may have played into my early opinion… but you had to wrap your mind around a new concept for existence.

Once I passed my early hesitation,  I fell into pace with the story. The descriptions flowed, the Drift became understandable and Astarti’s character emerged fully fleshed. That’s when The Griever’s Mark definitely took off.

Hurley did a good job creating a world with both physical and *almost electric layers. Her characters were likable yet flawed, the conflict palpable, and pace was excellent. The plot was well planned and unique. (I was thinking Lord of the Rings one minute and The Matrix the next.)

Would I recommend The Griever’s Mark? Yes.

Will I continue the series to find out what happens? Yes. I entered the giveaway on Goodreads for  Chains of Water and Stone (The Griever’s Mark #2)

Summary from Goodreads:

Give in to the Glamour…
Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she’d be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She’s a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping) and he’s not supposed to exist.

After her father’s affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn’t mind a first date that didn’t suck, but she’s determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann’s recently moved back to her childhood home in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died.

She’s still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He’s still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she’s with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann’s strict policy– never want someone more than he wants you.

Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don’t get careless and Don’t get caught. It’s allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore…

Lad’s never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the rules. He’s not even supposed to talk to a human, much less fall in love with one.

And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening, and mysterious celebrity fan pods are becoming more and more widespread and influential. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully unaware and safe.
