Blurb

Hell wants an angel. . .

Against her better judgement, Lacy Holloway is getting used to her life with Michael, but falling deeper in love with him is only bringing more uncertainty about their future together. And then there's the other little problem: God only knows why her dead sister is still hanging around, but she is secretly glad. Living with the man she loves, and having Beth back in her life, Lacy is hiding her concerns behind the normal life she so desperately craves.
 
Things have been quiet in Oakland, but calm wasn't usually on Michael's radar, and for good reason. Now the dead are stirring and when Michael and Jaret discover a mass grave in Cincinnati they suspect Varesh has returned.

Their suspicions are heightened the moment Michael comes face to face with a past he knows very little about, and that past comes with some shocking news. Overwhelmed by what he's learned, and desperate to stop his evil enemy, Michael finds himself on the hunt for a woman who is closer to him than he could have ever imagined. But if Hell finds her first, the repercussions will be devastating, not just for Michael, but for the whole of mankind

Who will get to her first? Angel or demon?

About The Author

L.J. Sealey was born and raised in a little Welsh town by the sea. It rains a lot, so she often has a great excuse to sit at her writing desk and while away the hours at her laptop.

She still lives in N.Wales and when she’s not travelling around the country working with her husband – who is a professional singer – or singing backup vocals herself, she likes to drive around the beautiful Welsh countryside. Some think it’s because she enjoys the scenery; others suspect she’s hunting dragons. L.J also likes to read and watch her favourite TV shows which normally includes plenty of CSI, The Vampire Diaries and endless amounts of sitcoms. Being addicted to reading about vampires, demons, shifters and angels, she has always had a thing for all things paranormal, and is a big sucker for impossible love stories. So it was inevitable that when she started writing herself she would mix the two together.

EXCERPT 

I couldn’t breathe. I knew my mouth was open, I felt my heart beating but for some reason I couldn’t get my lungs to function and take in the breath of air I needed. Maybe it was a good thing. Had I taken in that lungful of air, I’m sure it would have been exhaled as a scream.
I looked around the bedroom. Blood splattered up the wall in an arc, in another world it could have been mistaken for a piece of abstract art. I didn’t want to look at him sitting naked. A hole, a bloody, dark red hole, had appeared in the center of his forehead.
I pulled the towel tight around my body. Only a half hour ago he’d been alive, sleeping. The shower water that dripped down my body chilled me to the core. I grabbed my clothes, which had been strewn around the room, and pulled them on as quickly as possible. I stumbled as one foot tangled in the leg of my jeans. I screeched as I reached out to stabilize myself and touched his leg.
“Oh, fuck,” I whispered, over and over.
Panic started to well up inside me. My hands shook as I buttoned up my shirt and looked around the room for my shoes. I spotted one but not the other. I grabbed my purse, the one shoe, and headed for the door. And then froze.
I rushed back into the room and grabbed the plastic bag from the bin; it contained evidence of our recent encounter. I picked up the towel I’d left lying on the floor and used it to cover my hand before I opened the bedroom door.
Moonlight streamed in through a small window in the hallway illuminating the stairs and giving me enough light to navigate down them. I crept down, pausing on treads that creaked under my weight and listened. I could hear my blood rushing past my ears to feed a brain that was firing off electrical impulses at a rate I wasn’t sure my body could keep up with. Muscles jerked as if preparing themselves for the flight option my body was desperate to take.
I should have called the police, I should have checked for signs of life. I should have done a lot of things other than the one I did—I opened the front door and ran.

Sarah's Review of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts 1 and 2


Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is the Eighth Story in the Harry Potter series, and it takes place nineteen years later.

This book is actually a screen play so it isn't written in the normal fashion that we have come to know and love from J.K. Rowling of the Harry Potter series. But that doesn't spoil anything! It was different to see it written out that way, but once you get started you hardly even notice it's a play because the storyline and the movement of the characters dialogue is so engaging. It is a very easy read and as the acts are short it was very easy to read in increments or continuously.

In Harry Potter and The Cursed Child we see Harry as a grown up man. Harry is now working at the Ministry of Magic, is married to Ginny and together they have three school-aged children. Harry Potter never had it easy growing up and is still finding things difficult as an adult.

Harry is still struggling with his past as it doesn't want to stay in the past where it belongs. Harry's youngest son, Albus, is struggling with being a Potter and the legacy that entails, something he didn't want.

Without giving too much away, we find the past and present coming together in a terrifying way. Both father and son have to be honest and put their pride aside to work together. All while realizing that sometimes the darkness come from the most unexpected places.

It was very comforting to begin the story with familiar characters whom still possessed their original personalities. I was very glad that Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny had very much of the same characteristics just in a more grown up atmosphere. Even without the descriptions other than stage directions, you could still get a very good sense of their characters and their personalities through their spoken language.

Harry's youngest son, Albus, is whom the story centers upon. And we see him struggle with beginning school at Hogwarts and living up to his father's name. We also see a very unlikely friendship develop right from the beginning. Albus takes very quickly to a boy named Scorpius Malfoy. Yes, Draco Malfoy's son. And despite the relationship between Harry and Draco, the two boys quickly become best friends. And through their trials and series of unfortunate events, we find that they are able to teach their father's something about true friendship and ultimately bring Harry and Draco closer together. Draco's character has grown a lot since we last saw him.

I thoroughly enjoyed how raw the emotions were for all of the characters involved. We see how aging can mature us into something we never saw coming. We also bear witness to Harry's uncertainty as a parent just because of his childhood experience. But it also shows us how what happened to us in the past does not have to pre-determine our future. What happened in the past to Harry, not having a dad and being treated poorly, does not need to be repeated. Harry can shape his own children's lives for the good even though he didn't have anything to compare it to from his childhood. Harry shows us that we should learn from our past and strive for better, while continuously moving forward. The friendship between Albus and Scorpius shows what true friendship is and how strong of a bond it can hold.

The whole idea with the time turner was fantastic. It shows us how, even though we may feel insignificant at times, what we do can and will determine the future and the course of not only our lives, but the lives of those around us. We all play a part in this world and we all make an impact, whether big or small. We are all important in the roles we play in life and we have a significant effect on the lives of those around us, even if we may not feel that way. Remember, you are important.

If you are a huge Harry Potter fan like myself, and you have not yet read this, then I suggest you get your hands on a copy today! You will enjoy it! And even if the style isn't quite the same, at least you will know where the story has gone and what Harry Potter and the gang are up to now. Happy reading!

Sarah's Review of City of Slaves by Stephen R. Burns


In Stephen R. Burns' second installment of the Desolate Kingdom Series we once again are entered into a world one hundred years after the angels had brought the Storms that had almost eliminated all of humanity. Only one city remained, and it was located on the West coast. People in this city thought they were safe.
They were wrong. Instead, the angels came back and brutally killed a third of the city, while taking the other two thirds as slaves. Cale Edsen (Sendz) was a soldier who had survived, one of the only ones, but the horrors he had seen and what he had failed to do still haunted him. So for nine months he had turned to the bottle, living along the alleys of the Empty Gate, the worst part of the city, yet the only part that hadn't been taken by the angels. Cale thought this was it, that his life was over. But then he killed one of the creatures with his bare hands. Hands that were oddly stronger than they should have been and resembled the creature he had just killed.
But his story's not over yet. In City of Slaves, the angels know exactly who and what he is and they are coming for him.

This story takes place roughly nine months since the last book left off with many new characters. We were briefly introduced to Cale in the first novel, but this book is about his life and his world. We learn a lot about the angels, the city, and Cale himself. The brutalities that he had to endure and the life he has had to survive. We are also introduced to a very strong heroin, Naz, who proves that family isn't always what we are born into.

Burns writes with intensity and emotion that you are drawn into the book, right into action, from the first page. I enjoyed how the two main characters were so strong and substantial. Both his male lead and his female lead exhibited such endurance and modeled such power and firmness. All of Burns' characters have both masculine and feminine qualities that make them so endearing and equal.

The words Burns pens to paper depict so much more than a story. This story helps us to escape from the realities of life. No matter how bad our day is, or what we are facing, Cale's world is so much worse, and for a brief moment in time we are able to put our own worries aside. We find that our perspectives can change or be challenged and we can learn from their mistakes without having to make them ourselves. We find ourselves growing with the characters. A real life lesson I found taken away after reading is that family does not always mean blood relatives. Sometimes it's just the love and support we show each other that makes us family. We should never take those we love for granted. Unconditional love is just that, unconditional. How far would you go to save the ones you love?
