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.

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.”

Can she find what she is even when it will make her life hard? The Quest by Mary Abshire

Author: Mary Abshire

ISBN: 1616504137

Published: October 2012

 

Description:

Retribution. At any cost.
Now that she knows her name and what she is, she wants justice for everything she’s lost. Though her memories elude her, she takes a job for a half-demon Senator and, aided by werewolves from a local clan, intends to uncover evidence that will convict the Senator of more than thirty murders. Getting to the Senator and finding the necessary evidence is more difficult than she anticipates, especially when there is a bounty for her death. If that were not enough, the vampire who stole her memories returns and reveals unexpected truths. But she’s not going to let anything stop her. Not a sadistic assassin or a servant or Lucifer. Not even her ex-lover, the vampire God of the Underworld. Nothing will stop her from claiming retribution…even if the price is her life.

 

Review:

Very good book 2.
What would you do if you had 4 DNAs in yourself (human, demon, Vampire, Angel)? Someone whats to kill you at any cost? You would run away but not Shelly, she will face it, and even go into it. She rocks in that case.
I really enjoyed a plot and style, it war a really good read. Plot was carfully created and it was logical.
Characters were mostly very good developed, but sometimes i found them too naive for real world. Shelly is not a women that will allow anyone to command her, that made me like her even better as i’m done with womens who stay and scream for help.
I hadn’t suspected the ending, but it means there can be more books! And i would love to read it 😉
I recommendation this book to pnr lovers, people who like steamy, fast paced books 😉
For sure mature readers!

Review:

This is my first book from Mary and for sure not the last one!
This book start with the eathquacke, than slow down a little and finally speed up again. I loved the idea of losing memories or so, it was really well written – i felt bad about it thought whole book.
All characters have good and bad side, althought there are some that emphesize only one part of it.
The concept of plot was new for me – and that not happen very often.
I recommend it to people who like: PNR, Urban fantasy, kick-ass women, all kind of creatures mixed in one world!

Destroyed Bombay and blooming love – Taken by Laxmi Hariharan

Author: Laxmi Hariharan

ASIN: B01LW5YWQF

Published:  September 2016

Description:

Aria West: If I get out of here alive, I am never to going to let myself feel so powerless ever again
Jai Iyeroy: Everything in my past has lead up to this moment, for I am sworn to protect this city.
Three years ago Jai allowed the only woman he loved to walk out of his life. But Aria’s back now. Except her life is in danger, and this time Jai will do anything, even break his vow to protect his city, to keep her safe.
Set in a near-future where successive economic downturns in the West have resulted in refugees seeking shelter in the East

 

Review:

Women that you love or a promise you have to your mother before her death? This is Jai’s question for well 80% of book.
We meet Jai as young boy, still not an adult, he tries to find his place in this dystopian and tough world, for Ruby’s son it won’t be that easy. After 3 ,years he is an adult who knows his place but still feel something to the girl he met 3 years ago.
Aria was created brilliantly. What she felt in good or bad moments was described that way i could imagine it sometimes as my emotions. The way she treat Jai after 3 years was do real not artificial like i read somewhere.
I was very sad for Maya she has chosen other path than i thought. There was also a game for being a Mayor of Bombay 🙂
I want to read more of your works Laxmi!!
In general: very good book to read
Recommendation: if you like romance; dystopian worlds, shifters (not as main characters) this is book for you 🙂
I was given arc in exchange for honest review 🙂

Awesome beginning of the series – Awakened by Laxmi Hariharan

awakened

Author: Laxmi Hariharan

Published: July 2016

 

Description:

**Formerly called The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer.

When her best friend is kidnapped, Ruby will stop at nothing to rescue him. Criminals run the streets of Bombay. Jam-packed with the worst degenerates. The city is a shell of the pride and joy it used to be. Ruby knows something must be done, but it isn’t until her best friend is kidnapped by the despotic Dr Braganza that she knows that she and she alone must save city, save her best friend, save the world from total destruction. Armed only with Vikram, a cop-turned-rogue they are about to embark on a road they may never return from.

 

Review:

The place (BOMBAY) is so unusual for action in the books, that makes this place, well for me like from a dream.

From chapter 1, we are thrown inside middle of the action, you have to stay focus all the time or you will have to read previous page again 😉
Ruby is a normal (rather) girl, is involved in something much bigger than she thought at first. Then she have to deal with kidnapping, guns, knowledge of her origins and the most important emotions, especially love
Characters have very different personalities, different way of dealing with life 🙂

Generally, book has smooth action, lots of twists.

Very good pice of work, my 3rd book of Laxmi ❤

Brilliant book – third from Laxmi – and I still loved it!!
