Reign of Blood blog tour & giveaway


"Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."
In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

Excerpt #1

Rye tilted his head as he narrowed his steely eyes, sizing me up. “You think you’re so righteous, don’t you? This so-called mission of yours–killing the wildlings like animals–and for what? Just to find your family. Does that make you better than us?” He started shaking his head as he further closed the gap between us, a sinister grin dwelling on his lips. “But you’re not better than us, April. You, my dear, are just another kind of vampire.”

Excerpt #2

My eyes fell on one thing that I had not noticed before. The driver’s side door was slightly cracked open. My stomach lurched for a moment as I slowly stepped around the front of the van to look at the door. A smear of blood ran along the handle and up to the edge of the window. A bloody handprint of dark brick red in color, painted the center of the door. I gasped as my heart jumped, immediately drawing my machete out. I crouched against the van as my eyes darted around, looking for anything that would lead me to where they were. I searched the ground for blood trails but none could be found. If scavengers were out here too, they could have snatched them and I’d have been none the wiser. Not that I had seen any for almost a year.

Excerpt #3

I rounded the corner and came to dead stop. Before me stood a woman, dirtied and with wild hair. Her face was streaked with grime and rips ran through her clothing. Blood had dried in dark red and brown splats on her shirt and pants and the large Rambo-like knife that she fingered in front of me. She was ready to pounce, slowly shifting on her legs as she narrowed her eyes at me. Sucking in my breath, I instinctively reached for one of the machetes strapped to my side.
I was too slow.

I really enjoyed reading this story, I love Shade she is strong and fights for the people she loves no matter what, even when they tell her all hope is lost. She’s been though a lot and comes out stronger a women for it! She lost her parents, was abused in a foster care home and then was sent to live with her older brother who she love more than anything in the world. That is until he’s ripped away from her, by a creature she thought were only in books. Left with a vampire assassin named Damon whose job is to track and kill these nightmarish creatures she has no one else and is left alone without the one person she loves. 

Damon is almost a thousand years old, he’s at war with the overlords who fear his unnatural abilities and then all of a sudden this beautiful girl is dumped right into his lap. He can’t let her go she knows too much.  He must try and gain her trust but with shade’s past that is going to be one heck of a challenge. 

Will Shade overcome her fear and learn to trust Damon her Dark fallen hero? 

I can’t wait for book 2 I loved this story and I’m excited to see what happens next. This is defiantly on my must read list.

Phoenix Angel by Amanda Gerry, Christy Hall

              Phoenix Angel by Amanda Gerry, Christy Hall 

Book Description

 Maggie is a normal teenager, trudging her way through senior year with her best friend, Lily. Then a boy named Kyle Spencer came to Idaho Falls, and since then everything has fallen apart. Something mysterious has passed among the three friends. They are developing terrifying abilities--strange powers that separate them from normal people.

Even worse, someone--or something--has taken a deadly interest in them. They never know when they are going to strike, or how to protect themselves, or even who they are. All friends know is that they want one alive and the others they want dead. Which one will Maggie be?

My Thoughts

What a great read, I couldn’t be any happier with the character development. I love how each character has their strong points and their weakness also how they grow.  I defiantly did not see that twist coming at all and boy did that turn everything upside down.  

Overall I really loved reading Phoenix Angel  the magic and different worlds that come together make for one great read, this book has action, romance, suspense and even a little mystery as they try and find out what had happened to them and who they are. I’ll defiantly be reading book 2 to find out what happens next!
