I hope you were able to find all the eggs hidden this weekend and that none of them were real eggs (those are too expensive to lose) and you got to enjoy the holiday with family and friends. Now that Easter is past us, it won’t be long before the flowers start blooming everywhere, if they haven’t already. Be sure to take some time to smell the flowers (unless you’re allergic, then that’s not fun).
Another week has begun and that means I have 5 splendid books launching this week and the first book is out today! That’s pretty sweet for a Monday!
This Week’s New Releases
Title: Barghest Brawl
Series: The Origin Story of Monsters Book 4
Release Date: 04/10/2023
All families have their secrets. The Ambrosius Clan has more than most and they’re keeping information from people in their own family. Halsey and Brigham have just about had enough.
So has Greta. We’re only as sick as our secrets.
It’s time for some truths to be revealed, no matter who doesn’t want the cousins to find out what’s really happening.
Will they be able to put all the pieces together and figure out what role the Order of Skrár is playing in all of it?
It’s going to take a lot of research by Halsey and Brigham. It’s even going to take some underhanded manipulation of their cousins to get things rolling in the right direction.
Before the answers can come, there is another mission. Handle the barghests in the English countryside.
Have the monsters mutated into something they can’t take down with the usual tactics? What will it cost them?
Title: Dragon’s Reckoning
Series: Time of the Dragon Book 6
Release Date: 04/11/2023
Sacrifice is the only option. Who will be brave enough to make it?
Kels is close to getting everything she ever hoped for. She knows the way to save everyone on Earth. But nothing in the magical world is simple.
Can they survive the new conclave hunting them at every turn?
Being hunted sucks when you are a plain old human and your enemy has world-bending magic at their command.
There’s just one final piece of the puzzle and very little time left to get it. With their enemies closing in around them, Kels has to wonder if she can really fix the world.
The friends Kels made on her journey have given so much to the fight. Grey, Mags, and Carrow are by her side to the end.
Has she gambled their lives on a lost cause? Will this be one mission too many?
Title: Lucky Ones
Series: Messing Psychic Academy Book 5
Release Date: 04/12/2023
It’s dangerous to be kind in a cruel world.
That’s no excuse. It’s a reason to keep trying. So I don’t understand why my teachers keep giving up.
The reason is hidden in Messing Academy’s mysterious teaching contract. There’s only one way to discover it.
Become a teacher myself.
It’s the career path I’d been gravitating toward, anyway. I’m smart and driven enough to make the cut, and guiding students to reach their potential fits with my desire to do good.
It’s no surprise that the Advanced Placement college courses are intense. What I hadn’t considered was the risk.
I’ll lose my talent and my pledges if I say too much to my peers. I’ll need more than luck to see this to the end. Getting through it will take caution I haven’t developed.
Can I pull it off and make the biggest difference yet?
Title: Marked For The Pack
Series: Great Lakes Investigations Book 9
Release Date: 04/13/2023
Thanks to some experimental wizardry, Matt is out of Maggie’s head.
He’s in a golem body, to be precise. It’s not his body, but it’s an improvement on his previous situation.
Kind of. It’s going to take some time for his soul to acclimatize to an unfamiliar home. Until that happens, Matt will have to hope the awkwardness that comes with learning to operate his new body isn’t too much for everyone to handle.
An unsolicited case means there’s no time to worry about Matt’s temporary weirdness.
A traumatized woman shows up at Maggie’s office to report that some of the covens are being systematically hunted down.
Maggie and Matt aren’t in the PI business anymore, but this case is worth coming out of retirement for. However, things soon take a turn for the even weirder as the danger to the covens increases.
Maggie is determined to find out who’s behind it and take them down…
…just as soon as she figures out why she keeps running into two of her old enemies.
Title: Dangerous Responsibilities
Series: Piercing The Veil Book 2
Release Date: 04/14/2023
Discovering that the world of magic and mythical creatures is real should have been cool.
Tell that to Lucas, who is now stuck in cat form.
With Lucas growing more and more catlike and less human, they’re against the clock. Can Nat and Rich get Lucas back into human form before it’s too late and he permanently becomes a fluffy cat who wants snuggles and tuna?
With no solution is sight for Lucas’ predicament, it’s time for the team to figure out what they’re going to do with the AR glasses they’ve created.
Can they really sell a way to see the world that’s been hidden for centuries to all the non-magical humans?
They’re still trying to decide when the team, along with Alia, are approached by the enforcers of the magic world.
There’s a werewolf up to no good, and their tech can help the authorities catch him.
After their last adventure, no one is sure they want to get into trouble again, but it beats trying to navigate business politics, and they still have bills to pay.
Can they catch the criminal and free Lucas from the curse? Or will they find that everything is far more dangerous and complicated than it first seemed?
