About the Book:

To save her sister, she must stop a silent killer. . . .

Protecting Atlanta from the off-world criminals of Underground is tough enough, but now Detective Charlie Madigan and her siren partner, Hank, learn that the addicts of the offworld drug ash have begun taking their own lives. Ash makes humans the perfect vessels for possession, and something or someone is leading them to their deaths. Charlie is desperate to save her addicted sister, Bryn, from a similar fate. As New Year’s Eve approaches and time runs out, Charlie makes a deadly bargain with an ancient race of beings and embarks on a dangerous journey into hellish Charbydon with Hank and the Revenant Rex to save Bryn and make it back before it’s too late. Only, for one of them, coming home means facing a fate worse than death. . . .

About the Book:

All’s fair in blood and war. . . .

Talk about wedding crashers from hell. Keira Kelly and her sexy vampire king, Adam, are about to tie the proverbial knot—sort of—when an uninvited blood relative shows up to cast a long, dark shadow over the happy occasion. Adam’s brother Gideon comes bearing the one-size-fits-all gift of bad news: an ancient, convoluted Challenge thrown down upon the entire Kelly clan. It seems the dreaded forces of the Dark Fae have declared war on Keira’s family, and at stake is the land that is rightfully theirs. But while the Kellys gather their troops in a historic San Antonio hotel to strategize, there’s mayhem back in Rio Seco. The old cemetery is vandalized, fires break out, and—worst of all—the Kelly clan matriarch and leader, Keira’s great-great-grandmother Minerva, goes missing. Should Keira risk breaking the Challenge rules by returning to her beloved home, or should she continue the waiting game that seems the only other option? With everything she loves and maybe even her life on the line, she has only one chance to get the answer right.

    I like that they have such strong main characters that are willing to do anything they can to keep the world around them safer from the evil bad guys that threaten it. And that the world is usually so similar to ours its possible to imagine it as an alternate version of our world. And that there really might just be people like this out there to protect us.

    The thing I like about Urban Fantasy is that you get more action and paranormal with a less of the romance. I love paranormal romance but it starts to become the same. In Urban Fantasy I find a more in depth storyline and usually a very complete world that it’s set in. I usually read it when I need a break from the romance. I’d love to win a copy of these books. Please count me in. Thanks

    My favorite thing about urban fantasy is the strong female heroines. We just don’t see as many on TV or in the movies, but UF is chalk full of them. LOVE IT!!!

    In a great Urban Fantasy I look for several things-good world building, capable hero/heroine, lots of sarcasm and some comic relief, sexual tension is always a plus, but the most important thing in my opinion is the quest or journey or the seemingly insurmountable odds they must overcome.
    There is where you see the best and worst the characters have to offer.

    Also reading about a character who has to defeat a 6 headed hellbeast to save the world makes me feel better about having to work overtime to pay my cell phone bill and my son’s karate lessons. :)

    I look for lots of action, have enough humor and sarcasm sprinkled through, great plot, crazy surprises and twists, strong yet vulnerable heroine that takes no bull from no one and of course a hot alpha male haha, gotta have that!

    What I love about Urban Fantasies are the kick-butt heroines, the alpha male, snarky side kick and an amazing story line.

    My favorite parts of urban fantasy books are the strong characters who take charge of whatever situation they are thrown in. I also love that they are easy to relate to more often than not.
