I can fully admit that I have a thing for supernatural creatures. Vampires, Dragons, Shifters, Fae. There's something exciting about falling for a person who isn't quite human.
I love how each author takes the knowns (the different kinds) and makes them unique to their stories. Some authors have werewolves as strong and down to Earth, while others have them stumbling about like the Walking Dead. So while a type of supernatural can be bad in some worlds, they can be sexy heroes in another.
Author, Ashley Pagano has taken the supernatural world and created her own unique twist. A hotel where supernatural creatures live and a hotel that they must protect. Vampires, Fairies and a whole slew of other creatures show up in her books! Some on the side of good and some are evil!
Her first book in THE SOPPRANATURALE SERIES, THE GAUNTLET, introduced us to the hotel and some of those creatures, but her sequel, THE GUARD (Available now) brings in even more!
For Centuries, Fairies were extinct. And now . . . there are two at the Soppranaturale.
For readers hungry for more, here is book two in the Best-Selling Soppranaturale Series.
Ommily didn't expect to find "herself" at the Soppranaturale. She didn't expect to find magic, awe and beauty. And she certainly didn't expect to find her soulmate, and her match in every way.
Now that Link and Ommily have conquered the deadly Gauntlet, confessed their love for one another and been initiated into the Guard, they must fight to protect the Soppranaturale hotel from impending doom. Using their incredible powers, and those of their fellow Guard members, they must take the ultimate stand against rouge supernaturals. In order to succeed, Ommily and Link must push their bond even further.
Will the Soppranaturale hotel fall or will the Guard perish? The ultimate sacrifice may be required to do the unthinkable.
“Remove your shield, now!” she orders firmly.
I obediently drop my shield, causing the Red Caps to rain down upon us. But their descent is not fast enough. On her command, the flame leaps up, expands into a blazing inferno, and rolls outward like the mushroom cloud of an atomic bomb. She throws her hands upward and the rampaging flame obeys. Within seconds, the fire fills up the entire arena, lighting it up and feverishly devouring everything in its path like a famished beast. Even from several feet below, the heat is so oppressive I have to shield my face. Markus drops and does the same, curving into something fetal. Seraphine welcomes the flames as they approach her, mid-flight. Being that she’s completely fireproof, forged in the fires of Hell, she has not a thing to worry about. The fire erupts toward the ceiling, scorching every Red Cap in its way. It chews through their bodies, starting at their talons and sizzling up through their straw-like hair. The smell of burning flesh is followed by ashy remains floating to the ground like great dirty snowflakes. Gray smoke billows into the air, filling the hatches and seeping into the walls. Fire engulfs the nets, showering the arena with golden sparks that leap across the floor. It crawls across the ceiling tiles like dripping globes of red, orange, and yellow paint upon a porous canvas. It consumes the ceiling tiles until they deteriorate, break apart, and crash around us. It’s blinding, crackling, and terrifying.
Finally, Ommily exhales and releases her influence on the flames. She gently waves her hands across the field and every lick of fire is extinguished and every puff of smoke disintegrates. All that is left is the overwhelming smell of bonfire, and dancing embers.
