Crisis Alert

Divine Justice Series (Book 3)

Crisis Alert:

Demons are growing in mass numbers and destroying vampires, mankind’s protectors. To stop an outbreak of demons, the best field agents from the Divine Syndicate and Union of Justice must work together.

Anna and Zale hit the streets of Indianapolis to locate the demon masters and end the bloodshed. Although Zale holds biases against vampires, he’s impressed by Anna’s strong morals and commitment to saving the human race. He’s drawn to her in a way he’s never felt before. The need to protect her thrives deep in his soul. Anna can’t deny her attraction to Zale. Captivated by the werewolf’s nobility and compassion, she considers giving in to her heart’s desire. But preventing an outbreak must come first.

Anna and Zale’s struggles increase when the vampire leaders demand deadlines for exorcising the masters and reducing the demon population. Vampires are outraged over the increased destruction of their kind and want revenge. But killing humans is a crime. The UoJ will have to cease helping the DS to serve justice on those who break the law.

In a race against time, Anna and Zale must find the masters to avoid more carnage and the damnation of humanity. Their devotion to their mission and each other prevails as they encounter dire circumstances. But can they stop evil from ruling the Earth?

EXCERPT #1:

The scent of his blood and sweat filled her nose. Her canines threatened to extend, but she held them in place.

“I need you to lay down,” she said as she approached him.

Quiet now, he lowered onto the gurney. “And you’re sure you can do this?”

“I told you, I have experience.” She grabbed the bowl from the table.

“How much experience?”

She set the supplies near the side of his sculpted torso. She swallowed hard as her gaze lingered over the curves of his muscles. He had so many she found it difficult to look away. “There was a time when we didn’t have a real office or medical team. We had to take care of ourselves. We cared for injured humans from time to time too.”

She poured the alcohol over a few of the gauze pads and into the bowl. It had been many years since she’d last removed a bullet, but she remembered the process well.

She scooted closer to his hip. Thin dark hair covered a majority of his chest. A line of hair from his navel continued south and disappeared under his jeans. If her heart were alive, it would be beating fast.

“I need to lower your pants,” she said as she unfastened them.

“I hope so.” He scrubbed his forehead with his arm.

His sense of humor brought a smile to her face. “I’ll try not to look.”

He chuckled. “I have nothing to hide or be ashamed of.”

She gripped the edges of his jeans. Underneath them, she felt the hem of his underwear.

“Your fingers are cold,” he said.

“Sorry. Can you lift up a little for me?”

He did and she pulled his clothes down until she’d exposed the bleeding wound. Fortunately, she’d been able to keep his manhood covered, but barely. The outline of it underneath his blue boxers along with his dark hair tempted her to stare.

Swallowing hard, she returned her focus to the hole in his hip. Without wasting any time, she wiped the area clean and then picked up the tweezers.

“This will hurt,” she said as she put her hand near his wound.

“I’m ready.”

He watched her as she brought the tweezers down. More dark fluid spilled from his body as she gently slid the instrument inside him. The beat of his heart accelerated. He balled his fists tight. When she felt the tweezers hit something, she grabbed hold it. She glanced up and found him clenching his jaw while staring at her.

“Almost done,” she said as she carefully pulled the bullet out. Blood flowed faster from the opening. “Do you need to change to stop the bleeding?”

“Yes.”

She removed the bullet and dropped it into the bowl with alcohol. Before she could wipe the area with a sterile pad, he rolled to the opposite side of the gurney. His feet hit the floor with a tap and he groaned. While he shoved his pants all the way down, she caught a glimpse of a large tattoo on his back. It looked like lady justice holding scales.

Out of respect, Anna spun away from him. She’d never seen a werewolf shift before and wanted to watch, but the timing seemed inappropriate. His breaths were heavy. She heard snaps and cracks. His sweaty scent grew stronger, but another emerged. It held a more musky almost woodsy type of aroma. The thump of his heart increased. But the strangest detail of all was the wave of heat from behind her. It had to be from him.

She waited until the noises lessened before she stepped to the end of the table. The need to look consumed her. She’d even forgotten about her thirst. Unable to wait any longer, she rounded the gurney. Her eyes widened when she found a four-legged wolf staring at her.

“Wow,” she said. It was the first word to pop into her mind.

The werewolf had radiant green eyes and thick dark fur. He was beautiful. He panted and licked his chops. Slowly, he approached her.

EXCERPT #2:

The officers continued to point their weapons at Zale and the two on their knees. The cop nearest the road kept glancing at her.

“Ma’am you need to stay back,” the cop yelled.

She walked slowly toward them. “You’re pointing a gun at my partner. We’re undercover agents for the local government. I demand you release him.”

When his partner turned his gun on her, she stopped. “Hold it right where you are.”

“Anna, don’t!” Zale yelled.

The two men kneeling turned their gazes at her. Their skin tone and lack of beating hearts indicated they were vampires. They looked weak and reeked of blood. Besides the cops and Zale’s heartbeats there were two others nearby, but she couldn’t see anyone else. The other two bodies on the ground were dead. The scene didn’t look right.

She met the cop’s gaze. “Lower your weapon.”

She disliked tinkering with the minds of humans, but the situation called for it. Other law enforcement would soon arrive. She needed to set the vamps free and she had to make sure the humans didn’t suspect their presence. The clock was ticking.

“What?” he said.

She slipped into his mind. “Lower your weapon. Return to your car. The two dead were the only ones you saw tonight. They shot at you first. You defended yourself. Nobody else besides your partner was here.”

She removed the memories of the vampires and Zale from his mind. Slowly he lowered his gun. He had a blank expression on his face.

“Michael,” his partner said.

Anna approached Michael. “Sit in your car and wait. Once I leave, you will not remember me either.”

Michael began walking around the front of the cruiser.

“Michael! Michael!” the other officer yelled.

Anna met the cop’s gaze.

He directed his gun at her. “What the fuck did you do to him?”

“Lower your weapon. Return to your car. You didn’t see anyone here except the two men you shot. Nobody else was here, including me. Now, wait in your car.” She drifted into his brain and plucked the memories.

The cop put his gun back in its holster. As he headed for his cruiser, the two men with heartbeats emerged from behind the other parked cars. They lifted their weapons while Zale dashed toward her. He grabbed her and shoved her down to the ground. At the same time the vampires kneeling shot around the car. She dropped her helmet and smacked the pavement while shots fired from the guns. The bullets pinged on the cop car and shattered one of the headlights. Zale used his body as a shield over her until the loud pops stopped.

“Shit!” he said after a few seconds of silence.

He rose fast and took off. Gravel crunched under his shoes.

“Zale, wait,” she said as she hurried after him.

One of the vampires held a man by his throat, pinned to the hood of a car. The taller vamp held a man from behind. Gripping his hair, the vamp kept the man’s head back and neck fully exposed. The vampire looked ready to sink his canines into the man’s throat.

“Don’t kill them,” Zale said. “Trust me, you don’t want to do that.”

Anna came to his side. “If you kill them, you will be considered a murderer.”

“They shot at us first,” said the tall vampire ready to bite.

“This one is a demon. He should die,” said the other vamp.

“No,” Anna and Zale said.

“They need to come with me. I’m with the Divine Syndicate. I can exorcise the demon and then interrogate the two. They may have information to help me find the masters,” she said.

“If you kill them, I will have to take you to the Union of Justice for punishment,” Zale said. “I don’t want to do that. So please, let us take them to the DS headquarters.”

In the distance, Anna heard sirens.

“We need to go now!” she yelled. “More officers will be here within minutes.”

They were out of time. If more local cops arrived, she’d have to either wipe their minds or come up with some explanation as to why two men dripping blood and with bullets were still standing. She didn’t think she could handle the latter well.

Adelaide

Variety is the spice of life… That’s the kind of ‘throw caution to the wind’ mentality that got me into this mess in the first place. I thought a fresh start, some vodka, and swamp air would bring me back to my roots. They did, all right—my roots also got me pregnant and have me staring at this positive test like it’s a Jenga puzzle piece. One wrong move and everything topples over. We love each other. We hate each other. But above all else—we’re now stuck with each other for life.

Savannah

My sister has got herself a bun in the oven and a sentence for eighteen to life. Instead of owning up, she’s still letting her stubborn ass pride get in the way, and I’m done. I may not have it all together, but I’m taking matters into my own hands and forcing them to handle their business. I’m one hell of a puppet master too until my boyfriend drops the mother of all bombs on me. This should be our happily ever after, but life’s funny with curveballs like that. Especially ones you’ve managed to block out.

MY REVIEW – 5 STARS!!!!

Once again K.A. Ware and Cora Kenbourn DID IT!
This book has a serious matter from our lives – what would you do when you would discover your own pregnancy with everything going on around. Adelaide was funny but also she irritated me with her hormones, but I get it – hormones can make us a different person, so that was very realistic! Zep – I f**ing loved him, he could take adult pants on and behave very responsible.
Savvy – younger sister, but also with her own problems going on, but more about it in book 6 as here she was the one responsible and taking charge! I was really glad to see that part of her. Pope, there was very little of him, but I know there will be more of him in next book as that one will be more about Savvy!
Check out this funny read from great authors!

Can they defeat demons? Check it out in this great begining of new series by Mary Abshire!

EXCERPT from Demon Hunter:

 

Glenn parallel parked two blocks from the club. “What’s your plan?”

“I’m going to go in and find a spot at the bar. I want you to wait a minimum of five minutes before you walk in. Pretend you don’t know me. I’ll get a couple of drinks, show the picture, ask if anyone knew Jamal, and see what happens. And don’t worry, if they ask my relationship to Tim, I’ll say he was my brother and I took the photo while he was sleeping.”

“So you’re not going to create a scene or start a fight?”

“I will do my best to keep the situation calm. But if someone is going to try to intimidate or touch me, I’m going to defend myself.”

He grinned. “Do you want me as backup?”

“Yes. Right now I don’t know who is innocent and who isn’t. I need another set of eyes scanning people. But if I leave, don’t follow right away. Someone might be watching and I don’t want us to be seen together.”

“Are you carrying?”

“Have you ever known me not to?”

“No.” He smirked. “I’ll wait here for a while.”

EXCERPT from Demon Tracker:

“There are always casualties in war,” Gordon said. “No one wants to kill an innocent, including vampires. I’m sure they have plenty of guilt for their actions weighing on their consciences.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yes, I’m certain they don’t want to take life from anyone. You should ask one sometime if you don’t believe me.”

“I respect your opinion. You’ve seen and lived through more than I have. But it’s difficult to find anything good about them when I’m constantly hunting down those who have killed humans.”

“Trust my words, the majority of vampires are moral and they are here to defend us from evil. If demons wipe them off the face of the Earth, we will be doomed. Demons will come for us and the rest of the non-human population. Humanity will have lost.”

A world filled with evil, hate, and murder was not one Zale cared to live in. He’d seen enough death and chaos from the last outbreak and never wanted to see another.

“We can’t let that happen.” Zale gave a single shake of his head. “I won’t let that happen.”

What I think about each book

Crave

This is just a beginning so I highly recommend having all 4 stories to read!
What will happen when Ian suddenly become obsessed with Kristina just with seeing her n the screen? Will there be something more or just primal fascination?
I would love to see more of Inan’s thinking – but not only about sex, but about how he feels in general, as obsession can be SO powerful!
Still really nice reading.

Adore

This book starts almost right after book 1.
We get to know what Ian and Kristina are feeling after her running away due to the scene that was written by Ian to the Silk. They both struggle to live without each other, but will they manage to do it? Will be that addiction put away in the matter of time?
Let’s add to it: lies, mistrust, love, huge addiction, different plans of Kristina and Ian.
But will Ian be able to allow Kristina to go to Vancouver for filming and would be able to forgive her lies?

Shatter

That one blew my mind! We have here: addiction to someone you love, addiction to heroin and love that will right about it.
Let’s add to it one night mistake done by Kristina – will one night stand be the end of Ian and Kristina’s love?
This one was really exciting!

Claim

Emotions are so high here. Will Kristina manage to get Ian back, even when finding him wasn’t that easy? They got back together in the middle of the huge blizzard! During their way home had happened an accident that left both of them broken and scared about what will he or she think about them in that state. Kristina hides in Sienna’s home – will she manage to forget about the accident and what happened after it?
Check it out in great last part of this serial!

Following her purpose and picking up the pieces of her fractured heart is all Autumn wishes for. Increasing confrontations with Dehmons and the unveiling of powers keeps Autumn and her protective Searchers plenty busy, giving the Keeper the distraction she craves.

With the enemy pressing in on all sides, will Autumn be able to uncover the truth of the dark and treacherous visions haunting her mind, and untangle her heart in the process?

Where I End by Michelle Dare – excerpt reveal with my little review

Title: Where I End
Author: Michelle Dare
Genre: NA Romance Standalone
Editor: Karen Hrdlicka
Proofreader: Tiffany Landers
Cover Designer: Amy Queau
Blurb:
Eve
Pretentious. Arrogant. Condescending. Cruel.
All words I’d used to label him. Exactly what I’d always believed he was. All that changed one spring morning when I realized I didn’t know the man behind the facade at all.
Angry. Desperate. Broken. Mine.
All words I’d use to define him after I interfered. Once our eyes locked, I was all in. There was no turning back. He tried to push me away, but I refused to let him go. I was determined to save him. What I didn’t expect was that he would save me, too.
Cy
I was so close to ending my misery. Mere seconds away. Then she stumbled upon our argument, and I changed my plans. She wasn’t supposed to be there. She knew too much. Even with my entire world burning down around me, she wouldn’t walk away.
I’ve always been on my own. No one had ever fought for me before. Why should anyone start now? But she did, no matter how much I tried to stop her. I knew I was nothing, unworthy of her, but she was persistent. Once she got under my skin, I couldn’t let her go, because where I end, she begins.

We finally reach her apartment after what feels like a solid hour in the truck, though it’s only been a matter of minutes. I barely have the truck in park before she’s jumping out and walking to the stairs. I kill the engine and race after her, not giving any thought to what I’m going to say when I reach her. She’s fast as hell. I don’t catch her until she’s on the second flight, almost to her door.
“Evie, wait,” I say, as I grip her by the elbow to stop her.
She shakes me off. Her eyes narrow. “You don’t get to chase me. Not after the way you’ve made it crystal clear you don’t want anything to do with me.”
“It’s not that simple.”
“No? Then explain it to me, because I’m not understanding why one minute you want me to stay with you and the next you are running out of my apartment like you can’t bear to be in the same room as me.”
I rake my hand through my hair. “God dammit, Evie, why can’t you just leave things as they are?”
“As they are? Like how you completely stopped talking to me, then show up at dinner and expect me to be fine seeing you again?”
“It’s for the best that you’re not around me.”
She points her finger at my chest, mere inches from touching me. “You don’t get to decide what’s best for me.”
“I do when I’m involved.”
“Seriously? What about high school? Was all that shit you put me through best for me? Were you seeking me out, day after day, only to torment me, for the best? Because, as I remember it, those were far from the best days of my life. As a matter of fact, I’ve been living in a perpetual hell for quite some time now.”
My anger is rising to meet hers, but mixed with mine is also shame and regret for all I’d done to her in the past. “You’ve been living in hell? Fine. I’ll take credit for everything I dragged you through in high school. I was a grade A dick. I should never have done to you what I did, and for that I will always hate myself. You didn’t deserve any of it. But right now, as we stand at this moment, it’s better if I leave you alone.”
She throws her hands up in the air then back down to her sides. “Then why the hell did you follow me up here, Cy?”
“Because I can’t fucking walk away from you! Because every waking moment of every fucking day, I think about you!” I’m breathing heavy, my chest rising and falling. I can only imagine how feral I look.
Evie stumbles back until her ass hits the railing. “What?”
All my anger slowly leaves me. She’s right. I should never have followed her. I would have been better off staying in my truck. “Never mind.” I turn and walk down a few steps, but then she’s behind me, grabbing my arm, turning the tables.
“Oh, no you don’t. You don’t get to come after me, say all you did, and walk away like none of it ever happened.”
“Can’t you see, Evie? I’m no good for you. Every time I’m near you, shit gets out of hand. You’re better off without me in your life.”
“No, I’m not.”
“I only bring pain with me. Nothing more. I can’t offer you anything when I’m hollow inside.” I rub the center of my chest, feeling the familiar ache that resides there without Evie in my life. Yet, as she stands before me, looking so fucking beautiful, the ache is still there because she isn’t mine. I can’t and shouldn’t touch her. I should turn away and leave her, but I’m frozen in place.
She lays her hand over mine on my chest and peers up into my eyes. “You’re not hollow. You have good in you. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be here right now. There’s a part of you that wants to be near me. Just as there is a part of me that longs to be near you.”
I close my eyes for only a moment before gently removing her hand from mine. It’s sheer torture to do so, but I know I must. “I have to go.”
“Please, don’t.” She doesn’t understand how being this close to her is driving me crazy. I’ve got to get out of here. Distance needs to be put between us. I turn and start down the steps again.
“If you leave now, don’t you dare come back,” she says, causing me to stop in my tracks. “I mean it, Cy. You can’t keep toying with me. I want you here. With me.” I keep my back to her, unable to look into her eyes. If I do, I’ll give in. “I don’t care about what happened in high school,” she continues. “None of it matters. Only what is happening right here, right now. Stay with me. Please.” The pleading of her voice almost has me turning. Almost.
I shake my head and go down the remaining stairs; all the while telling myself it’s better this way. Sure, my heart feels like it’s being ripped from my chest. But she needs to find someone who will lift her up, be the man she needs. Not someone who is broken beyond repair and will only drag her down into the bleak abyss with him.
WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT!
This book was really hard for me to get a number of stars for it – there were so many emotions and feelings in it that it was spinning down my head/heart.
Eve is a woman that is strong and knows her value, even when other people don’t see it. Her high school life was a terrible nightmare due to one person Cy – his only goal was to torment her in front of his friends as he was the most popular guy there. No thanks to him Eve is tough and can deal with everything.
Add to is a man (Cy) who is not what he shows the world. He tries to seem unaffected by anything, cool. But what will happen when his attitude will be no longer manageable? That he would try to even kill himself?
Join them on their path to get everything right, fight old demons and what they feel to each other. Will they manage to figure it out? I almost cried in public reading it.
