Holidays Are Hell

So to get in the holiday spirit I decided to read something that will help me with that. Holidays Are Hell has four short stories for New York Times Bestselling Authors: Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Marjourie M. Liu, and Vicki Petterson.

Kim Harrison's short story takes place before we first meet Rachel Morgan in the Hollows Series. We learn more about the younger uncertain girl who will become a powerful witch later. We also meet Pierce. Rachel want to join I.S. early and make a bet with her brother Robbie that if she can summon her Dad then he will approve. However, its never that simple. Instead of her Dad she get a very hot looking ghost named Pierce.

Lynsay Sands gives us another short story that is the sequel to her story in Dates from Hell. This is a story all about Jill and is very hot. But make sure you read the one in Dates from Hell first so you will like it a whole lot more. She is crushing on Nick for six months now and finally she is going to be his Mrs. Clause to his Santa but it is a crazy series of mishaps.

Meeting Rachel Caine

Book Signing with Rachel Caine
Rachel came in Exton, PA as part of her FADE OUT book tour. Philadelphia won in her contest. Over 100 people came to the borders express to met her. She started with a Q&A, cupcakes, and goodie bags. Then we formed a very long line but it was well worth the wait. Rachel was very generous with her time and talked with everyone who came to visit. I told her that one of my favorites was the Morganville novella from Eve's point of view.
Rachel Caine ROCKS!!!!

Jocelynn Drake's Dark Days Series

The Dark Days Series
Jocelynn Drake

A war lies just beyond the horizon, but will soon stumble across your doorstep. When those dark days arrive, which side will you choose; a race that has hidden in the shadows for centuries or a forgotten race of light offering up promises of a green peace?

The Dark Days Series begins with the world hovering on the cusp of a war that no human expects. The fighters on both sides are creatures long relegated to the realm of fairy tales, ghost stories, and the ravings of mad men.

Regardless of whether you are a believer or prefer to huddle in denial, the war is coming and you will have to choose a side.
Who will be your champion against the rising tide?
Nightwalker or Naturi

Jocelynn Drake's series includes Nightwalker, Dayhunter, and Dawnbreaker also in Unbound a prequel to the series called "The Dead, The Damned, and the Forgotten." The heroine in this exciting world is a redheaded 600-year old vamp named Mira. She is a feared by humans and nightwalkers alike because she is known as Fire Starter. She runs her domain and enjoys her independence until a Hunter enters her domain and ruins everything.

Danaus is a vampire hunter that is very good at his job. However, he is not here to kill Mira but to learn about Naturi. That is the last thing Mira wants to talk or remember. They start on a journey to save the world. Two enemies working together against a worse enemy.

I could not stop reading these three books until I finished. I still want to read Unbound to see how it all started. Everyone would enjoy Dark Days.
