At the heart of Astosen, the city of Dein Astos stands as a bulwark for the free world, always on alert to battle Valania’s attempts to bring the republic under continental dominance. Sophisticated and diverse, driven by magic, money, and information, this city of magi teems with tea houses, government agencies, exclusive clubs and risky districts.

Alexander Locke, a great Magi Knight and the hero of the republic, lies dead. His daughter, Zia Locke, reluctantly rises to power, unaware that her father may not have died of natural causes, as everyone believes.

That is, until she is artfully maneuvered into meeting the mysterious and abundantly self-assured Grayson Kearney. A keen judge of character and cunning magus, Grayson rocks Zia’s world in more ways than one as he helps tear away the veil of ignorance from her eyes. From lifelong friends to sworn enemies, the new leader of the House of Locke is discovering that anyone could be the next to betray her. What Zia needs is a good intelligence officer at her side. But when everyone has a hidden agenda, can she truly place her trust in Grayson?

Marcie Hollis is a Wiccan, who’s always played by the rules. That’s until she meets Dan McKenzie, a man who she believes to be the knight in shining armor she’s been searching for all her life. However, Dan’s not who he appears to be. He lures Marcie into his world of lies, greed and high-grade marijuana. But fate intervenes on Marcie’s illicit trip for Dan to New Orleans, when she’s robbed in a crowded airport. The thug not only makes off with her suspicious backpack, he knocks her down, her head slams on the concrete floor, and she loses her memory right in the path of DEA agent, Sam Carre.

After a six-month investigation into the activities of a big time drug dealer crumbles, the same day damming evidence is found stuffed in Sam’s locker – evidence suggesting he’s the notorious leak on the team, Sam jumps on the first plane home. Arriving in a crowded airport in New Orleans – his reputation and loyalty are in question. But even though Sam’s tired, disillusioned and haunted by a past that gives him no peace, he stops to help an attractive stranger when she falls in front of him. Then in an act of chivalry, he takes her to his home until the police can identify her. When questions arise about Marcie, and what she’s involved in, the answers lead them to the exact felons Sam investigated in the Pacific Northwest.

When her illusive memory returns, this complex case pushes them both to explain the unexplainable, and leaves Sam with a haunting question. Was she set up, or was this a game she played? Sam’s forced to make a choice, walk away from the attraction that connects them, or risk losing everything.

Special Guests at Breaking Bookshelves

Hello ladies, gents, and other mythological creatures possibly lurking around! We have special guests today here at Breaking Bookshelves. Three very attractive, very wonderful, and very interesting individuals who have gone through enormous obstacles only to find themselves being interviewed here (jeeze, I’m sorry for the lackluster interview space guys). I’d like all you readers to meet and welcome Nicholas, Declán, and Anya from Blood’s Voice and Blood Bound!

~*~


Hahaha, oh my~ So, on to some lighter questions? What are your favourite books? Movies? Music?

Anya: Favourite? Oh, I have no idea. I love reading and immersing myself in the worlds and adventures with the pages of my ever growing collection. I mean, I have a reading room as part of my bedroom suite plus we have a House library and that’s not even counting the fact I have both a Kindle and a Nook.
Music would have to be everything! Though, right now I’m really into Godsmack, Muse, and Blue October. I don’t really watch many movies . . . preferring to read and ‘watch’ the story of the book in my head. I do really enjoy some of the more cult classic movies Nicholas and Declán have introduced me to though, especially Princess Bride and the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
OHHH, seems like we have a few things in common there 😀

Nicholas: Oddly, I’d have to say Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, I think. Probably considered an odd answer from a nearly 200 year old guy, but I just love the insanity and logic of Wonderland.
Most of my preferred music choice fall under Mozart, Beethoven, or anything from the Phantom of the Opera – and yes, that’s also my favourite play and movie.
Not odd at all Nicholas, it’s a classic~ And Phantom of the Opera is amazing!

Declán: Um, *blushing* most of my fav books and such are on architecture, design, and material style. Okay, so maybe I’m a little geeky, but I look great in leather while reading them. 😀
On music . . . um, most anything. Just not hateful rap – like the angry kind that degrades women – or the really whiny country. I like some western though. The Man in Black was awesome! 😀 Especially when he did all the alternative covers and such not long before he died. Gotta love Hurt when he did it.
Movie? Right now would still have to be E.T. but the original version . . . not the reedited one that’s out now.
Haha, a little geeky goes a long way! I for one love my boys with a little bit of geek and nerd. 😛 AND oh yes, The Man in Black~ (E.T. was an awesome movie).

Interview: Mistress Anya @ Jeanz Book …

Interview with Anya Millar

Blood's Voice & Blood Bound Virtual Tour

A lovely young woman, I believe her name was Peony, led me out onto the veranda of the beautiful home that is the House Millar.  The charming Mistress Anya was already waiting on me.  She even though of my human needs – a snack and drink were laid out on the small table beside the empty chair.  Once I was settled Anya offered me tea as I thanked her for this rare opportunity.

Thank you for allowing me this inside peek into what makes you, you.

You are quite welcome.  I don’t mind speaking to others as long and they remember the rules.  *wink*  Though, you have to by default, being human and all.

True.  I’ll start off with an easy one.  You’re a vampire?

Yes.  Though I’m an aberration in my world.  I refuse to kill humans just to live.  I am not fluffy though – so do not underestimate me or those you see that live here.  We are lethal when we need to be but humans are off the diet.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW – AINE MASSIE

 

Is there anything in your book/books you would change now if you could and what would it be? T

he biggest complaints I get are about the GBLT and Triad relationships – won’t change those, period. The other is the non-American spelling in the books… but again, there is a reason for that. If the character telling the story had been American the spellings would have been too. (That and I naturally spell colour and centre, lol).

Author Interview at Breaking Bookshelves

Hello one and all! Today we have special guest author, Áine P. Massie, dropping by Breaking Bookshelves and being awesome! She’s agreed to do this little interview here on Breaking Bookshelves just to inform us a little bit about her House Millar series~ So sit back, get some coffee or tea, and enjoy!

~*~

That sounds very interesting! I’m guessing it was like getting to know completely new people! What made you decide to write mainly about vampires instead of some other mythological creature? Did you try to stick with original vampire lore?

I have always been fascinated with vampires and the various incarnations, be it in books, comics, movies, etc. Vampires are not the only mythological creatures in the HM series, by the way. Book 3, Glamour Blade, is told from the POV of Sir Rory, a sidhe warrior sent to help the Guardians.

As to original lore . . . Actually, you have to understand that there is no such thing as “original lore” for vampires. Each culture that has believed in blood drinking creatures has also had their own ideas of what those beings looked like, were hurt by, acted like . . . My vampires are day walkers (but technically so was Dracula is you read the old book carefully – it was possible for him to be out in the day), though the sun does weaken them to a nearly human endurance. They cannot eat but they drink if it’s mixed with fresh blood. Their fangs are retractable but when retracted, the eyeteeth are slightly pronounced. They have the currently common beauty and grace but they are allergic to silver.

There are other things about them too but the key is that there is lore basis for each of the main traits my vampires have. No, they’re not Angel or Edward nor are they Dracula or Nick Knight but rather they are the unique, blood drinking beings that inhabit my story world.
