it was amazing
Midnight Angel is not the kind of book I normally read. I love books set in England, but as a rule I don’t read any romance tinged with horror and graphic violence. But I couldn’t put Midnight Angel down. I had to know what happened.
Kat is a divorcee with a grown son. She’s bought herself a new cottage and is planning a great time redecorating with her best friends. When she’s assaulted by a monster everything changes. The assault leaves her with terrible wounds and new powers. Suddenly she can see things she’s never seen before, including a lover who first comes to her in dreams. Kat’s caught up in the battle between angels and demons and if she and her new friends don’t find the demons, it could mean the end of our world. Wonderful first book. Looking forward to reading the next one.



US Review
ByRebeccaon October 26, 2016
Midnight Angel captured my interest from page one.

The author crafted paranormal suspense that kept me on the

edge of me seat...and made me late for work yesterday!

Through the shape shifting tale, she told a very possible

romantic story that gave a realistic feel to the novel. I love

getting caught up in the world of a book and peeking over my

shoulder just to make sure the paranormal isn't real. Yes, it

was that good! I loved all the side characters and hope this

author continues with their stories in a continuing series.

4 STAR

After surviving a vicious attack Kat Shaw learns that monsters really do exist in the world. She begins having dreams of brutal murders and finds that she is seeing what the demon who had attacked her is actually doing. Kat is thrown into the battle of good versus evil as her attacker stalks her and continues to murder innocent victims.

First, a couple of things about Midnight Angel. This one is definitely an adult fantasy read as there was quite a bit of sexual content going on. It took me a bit of getting used to as I’m used to the whole demon fighting type of read being mostly young adult. Plus with this one there’s a bit of a love triangle situation with the main character meeting two men.

Otherwise, I like the idea behind the plot in this one. The idea of surviving an attack only to end up linked to the attacker was certainly interesting. To be injured and have your injuries heal rather quickly would be odd enough but to learn what you are seeing is actually taking place and there is a whole world out there you didn’t know existed was a fun topic.

Excerpt


Rosa stalked through the forest ahead of me, deliberately averting her gaze from my naked body. I wanted to make a joke about it, but judging by the set expression on her face, I knew it wasn’t the best time.

When Rosa reached the cabin, she stomped across the porch, unlocked the door, walked inside and slammed the door shut behind her. I stopped myself before I slammed my face against the glass panel.

“Hey,” I rapped against the window beside the door. “I’m still out here.”

“I know that. Say what you need to say to me through the door,” Rosa moved toward the kitchen, and started slamming her groceries down on the bench. Her hands were still shaking. “I’m not having you inside, not when you could turn into one of them.

“Could you at least throw me a towel or something? It’s a little nippy out here and I’m afraid I’m not showing you my best angle.”

The corners of Rosa’s mouth tugged upward a little, but she didn’t crack that gorgeous smile for me. She balled up the red duvet she’d spread over the bed, and shoved it through the door to me, slamming it shut behind her before I could get an arm through the gap.

I wrapped the duvet around my lower half, knotting the ends together. “Not quite the kilt I’m used to, but it’s something.”

“Don’t try to be funny, Caleb. This is serious. You’re a werewolf. I was just attacked by two other werewolves. The werewolves that attacked me today – they’re your stepbrothers, and they are after me to get to you for some reason that I’m sure to regret learning.”

“That’s an astute summary of the situation.”

“I’m going to need more, Caleb. I’m going to need the full story.” She slammed the kettle down on the stove, and turned on the gas.

“It’s a pretty long story.”

Rosa held up her cup and waved it at me. She folded her arms and leaned against the bench, one hip jutting out suggestively. “I’m listening.”

Hell Will Rise by Skyla Murphy - Book Tour + #Giveaway

The Bloodthirst Mafia Series
Book One
Skyla Murphy

Genre: Romantic Thriller

Publisher: Skyla Murphy

Date of Publication: May 2017

ISBN: 978-0-9958306-1-5
ISBN: 978-0-9958306-2-2

Word Count: 86,400

Cover Artist: Kim Killion

Tagline: “When dawn breaks…”
Book Description:

This was never what I wanted, but fame in the mafia was what I got.

When you see numbers like I can, death becomes a constant threat. It lingers, waiting for you to make one wrong move. One falter. One fatal step out of line. The endless presence will drain you, layering you with guilt and regret. Until one day, you’re covered in blood. And in that moment, you realize… you’ve become the grim reaper yourself.

Nothing could stop me from saving my little sister. Nothing could weaken me… until my boss threw a blonde slave at my feet. Once I found out who she was, I should have wanted her dead.

But I had a bad habit of breaking the rules.

And I loved that she hated me.

Like a stupid man named Romeo, I fell for the daughter of the feuding family. Like an idiot named Juliet, she didn’t try to run.

And when I fell for the fair maiden, I shook a pair of dice. I smoked a cigarette, but she paid the final price. As I offered her a smile, my venom filled her core. I watched her drink my poison as her soul walked out the door.

Chapter 4 Excerpt

“I hear you’ve been looking for a government job?” Grimsaw asked it like a question, but I knew there was no good answer. Once he identified betrayal, there was no playing reverse psychology on him.
He tapped a gray pistol in his palm, warning me that nothing good was about to come my way. Everything he did came with a price tag. He didn’t offer favors. He did things to claim ownership over people instead. He thirsted for power, and he had a damn lot of it too. After crossing him like I just had, you didn’t breathe the next day. Your fingers were shipped out to your family. That was the end of that.
“I’m flattered you’re so frightened to lose me. I didn’t think you would cause a ruckus over something so fatuous,” I smiled, taking a casual glance around the warehouse. It took seconds to realize that most of his grease monkeys had formed a threatening circle behind him. There were at least fifteen men in blue coveralls, all ready to take me down if I made one wrong move. “I thought we were robbing—”
“Don't play dumb with me. That was my way of leading you down here. You know what this is.” He spun his finger around the garage, glaring at me ruthlessly. “So, what is it?”
“Another initiation?” I guessed.
These guys were the worst thugs known to the west coast. They were great allies to have on my side, but that wasn’t where they stood now. I had already completed my fair share of initiations over the past three years. I had done things I would never speak of, but this was Grimsaw’s way of testing my loyalty now.
“This is the consequence of your behavior. I gave you everything you needed during your darkest of times, and this is how you repay me? By being a pussy?”
“If I was a pussy, you wouldn’t be so upset right now,” I shrugged, welcoming the devil on my shoulder to stand himself tall. “I’ve already done a lot of messed up shit to prove myself to you. I won’t like it if you try to run me through hoops another time.”
“Then you shouldn’t have chomped down on the hand that feeds you.” Flames of fury lit up his eyes. “There are two types of people in this world; the good and the evil. I shouldn’t have to remind you which side you chose to leap onto. Once we ride, we die side by side.”
He kicked at the metal pail by his feet, as if the thud would somehow convince me to put my head on straight. It didn’t, so I watched the pail roll away unproductively instead.
“I consider you a pal, Garciez,” he carried on. “But we're not homies right now. You've been the brains behind the operations for a while, but I draw the line at disloyalty. None of your talents will help you out in this moment. I got no problem lining the streets with your half-breed blood. I’ve got years on you, monkey.”
I watched his fists tighten and decompress in an unnervingly steady rhythm. Everything about him reeked of temper. After knowing him for a few years, I could always tell when Grimsaw had met his breaking level. He wasn’t there quite yet, but I was sure pushing him close.
“You wouldn’t know how to rob a lemonade stand without me.” I probably should have let him domineer, but I chose the alternative instead. “You could kill me like you did Antonio, but you would never make this kind of coin again. I taught you how to rob a bank. It wasn’t the other way around. You know death doesn’t scare me.”
As I met his dark scrutiny, my smile was cocky.
Grimsaw had turned me into his own brand of robot. He had desensitized me over the past three years. In return, he’d managed to make me numb. This numbness brought a lack of fear, because I knew Grimsaw didn’t want to kill me. He would try every possible tactic before allowing things to reach that head. If he were to lose me, he would lose his ease of acquiring money too. As it stood, I was the one quenching most of his thirst for wealth.
“You might not fear death…” Grimsaw’s eyebrow arched vindictively. The dislodged look on his face caused my guts to wrench like bar rags. “The thing with disloyalty, amigo? I’m better at it than you are.”
Only one face entered my mind.

Tessa’s.
