#craving some dystopian goodness as of late!
When a plague turns people into monsters, the only safe place left to live is the Ora, a spaceship beside Earth’s moon. Aboard are the specimens of the next generation, genetically modified to develop powerful abilities, which they must use to fulfill their life’s purpose: exterminating those infected by the plague and stopping the apocalypse.
From the day Eos Europa was created eighteen years ago, she’s cared about little else. But when she fails to develop an ability, everything she’s worked for is lost—that is, until soldiers start disappearing only seconds after reaching Earth’s surface.
In an act of desperation, Eos is sent to Earth to find the missing soldiers. But what she discovers challenges everything she’s ever been taught—about who she is, where she’s come from, and how the apocalypse really began—leaving her to decide whether she’ll continue to play the puppet she was created to be, or disappear like everyone else.
On those dark and gloomy days when it feels like the world has turned away from our work, we can always rely on our pets to make us smile again. Pets play an important role in the life of a writer. So, I have given some thought to the job description for a writer’s pet. Here […]

I’m not really sure what to make of King’s. Honestly, I went into it just by randomly clicking on it in my Kindle. The writing is strong and the plot interesting, but from the first chapter I thought this would be a sexy, dark erotic romance. It slowly unfolded with paranormal elements, but the romance/erotic elements weren’t really present — unless King filling doorways is sexy for you.
I realized, once I’d finished, that this is better suited as an urban fantasy or maybe paranormal suspense. Had my expectations been tempered from the beginning, I may have enjoyed the whole ride more. Instead, I was left wondering when things were going to get steamy, when King was going to stop being a huge jerk, and when our heroine would stop ignoring his very obvious words of caution and getting herself into terrible situations. So. I enjoyed the overall product to some extent. I’m curious about what King is and am considering reading the rest of the series now that I know what things are about.
Tl; dr — this isn’t a sexy, dark paranormal romance. It’s more along the lines of urban fantasy or paranormal suspense with a potentially sexy character in it. Good writing. A bit slow to kick off. Interesting.
Check it out on Amazon!
I really, really enjoyed the first book in the Blackest Gold series, and I can’t wait to see what happens next with Molly and Tensley!
*grabby hands* GIMME!
Never trust a demon.
Never trust your heart.
And never trust the woman who holds it.
In Body of the Crime, a beast craved a beauty and oh, how she ravaged him.
