What if you were able to go back in time? You knew you were in your past...would you be able to resist changing things? What if by changing things you changed your future?
I often wonder about this for myself. I didn't always make good choices in the past. The ability to change things is very tempting but I wouldn't want to give up the wonderful things in my life, like my children and my husband. Who knows just what any outcomes would be.
Two characters in Clara Winter's Dark Star face just that question. The group of immortals have angered someone they shouldn't have and now they face the consequences. Dark Star is the compelling final book in the Immortal Kindred series about vampires, witches and demon hunters. Living for a long time have given these characters a unique perspective on life and love.
Now available in ebook and print, you won't want to miss this amazing story!
The compelling final story in the enchanting series which began with Deepest Midnight….
The Immortal Kindred gather together as chaos erupts. Two of their own have gone missing, sucked back in time. Vampire demigod Selene messed with the wrong goddess of death. Now they’re all in danger.
Millicent and Annie come face to face with the distant past. No longer immortal, they must draw on their inner strength to see them through travails long thought dead and buried.
Tash, the witch, draws on every spell he knows to bring the women home as he taps into the power of the dark star. Will it be enough to grant the immortals their happily ever after? Will the goddess, Nephthys, put an end to everything they know and love?
Dark Star is an epic adventure that will take you all over the globe and through time itself.
Something was happening. The air around us swirled as if a tornado were forming. I caught a glimpse of golden hair and cried out. I could just see the form of Millicent, materializing mere feet from me. I wanted to run to her and pull her fully into the present, but I was stuck in my place by the torrent of wind.
In a loud peel of thunder, Nephthys was there. She stood tall and beautiful, her gold net dress glinting in the moonlight. Under the sway of Tash’s melodic chanting, I swayed on my feet. It took me several beats to realize this was the actual goddess standing in front of us. The others must have been entranced, as well. We were all frozen in a druglike stupor.
Then, everything happened too fast. Nephthys flung out her arms toward Tash. A fireball, large and flaming hot, appeared in her hand. “I’ll end you, then I’ll destroy the only means you have to ever get them back.”
My head snapped from Nephthys to the streak my sister made as she bolted across the clearing. She never saw Selene coming. Selene pounded into her, knocking the goddess down hard into the rocky ground.

Happy Release Day to Liz Ashlee and Sort of Normal #Book_Release #Release_Day #new_release #YA_Romance
When a new book comes out, it's a celebration! Books make so many of us happy as we fall into the worlds that the author created and imagine ourselves along with the characters experiencing the ups and downs of life.
Today, Sort of Normal comes out. This amazing tale is an emotional roller coaster. The relationship between the two main characters reminded me of my own relationship with my first boyfriend. He'd been the one person I grew up with, from diaper-wearing toddler to best friends as adults. Tracey was the one person who knew me as no one else did.
Ms. Ashlee weaves the romance along with letters between the two characters so readers can understand the backstory and gain a glimpse into their relationship.
Now Available in Ebook and Print. This is a book you will want to read over and over again.
Falling in love isn’t as easy as staying in love.
Carter Hart and Boone Fell’s lives are tangle of perfect and imperfect memories. In a world of drugs, alcoholism and neglectful parents, their love for each other kept them strong. But all it takes is one kiss and a lie to tear them apart.
When Carter’s brother, Declan, dies of an overdose, Boone decides he can’t let another day of secrets and mistaken circumstances keep them apart. His only problem? Now that he’s ready to move forward with Carter, she’s ready to leave him where she thinks he belongs: in the past.
For once in my life, we're on even ground. "I don't like it," I tell him. "The nickname, I mean."
"You used to."
"I was little. I liked everything you said—including a nickname after an ugly bug. I tried to find one good thing about them, and you know what I found?"
He actually looks curious. "What?"
"They aren't harmful to humans or animals, and that's about it. They kill crops, burrow into the ground, come back out, and die. Oh, and they make good food for small creatures. I'm really glad that I represent that to you."
"I think they're actually beautiful, you know," he tells me as we come to a stop at a crosswalk and wait for the light to change. "They're resilient, and they always emerge around the same time. You can put a lot of faith in a Junebug to do what it's gotta do."

After winning the Golden Globes, I see 1917 being a top pick for Oscar as well. The movie is a compelling story of two British soldiers who risk their lives to bring an important message to the front lines. You can read my full review on my Movie Review Page.
Have you ever fallen in love with a series and wanted to know what made the hero who he was? We like to understand why people act certain ways. It helps us justify why a villain acts the way he does. Loki is one of my favorite Marvel characters and I'd love to see a movie about his childhood and frankly more of his life. (hint Marvel- are you listening?)
We like to classify people and figure out what made someone do something "bad".
