Push and Pull 
Vampire Favors ~ Book #1
by Emily Cyr
Publication Date: April 2, 2015
This book is for 18+
Seven years ago, Addison Fitzpatrick found herself in a bit of a bind. In true Addison-fashion, she'd angered a drug dealer; she may have “forgotten” to pay him. Just when it was time to pay the piper, she was offered a way out by an unlikely being. Cannon Blackwood, master of vampires, made her an offer she couldn't refuse. Now, Addison owes Cannon three favors. Seven years after that fateful meeting, just as Addison’s life is getting back on track, Cannon calls in one of the favors she owes him. There is a new drug that threatens the very existence of the vampire race and Cannon needs Addison, along with his brother Lachlan, who happens to be a professional thief, to steal it and destroy any evidence of it. Not only is the future of the vampires on the line, but with both Cannon and Lachlan vying for her attention, her heart is as well. Addison
has difficult choices to make and dangerous favors to repay if she wants to see the light of another day.

Vampire Favors ~ Book #2
Publication Date: June 1, 2016
This book is for 18+
Addison Fitzpatrick settled her first favor, a cataclysmic repayment that ended with hundreds of Pushers dead. Three months later, she receives a letter from the Vampire who betrayed her trust, asking her to save him. 
The cryptic letter makes one fact perfectly clear – she has to find Lachlan, assuming he’s not already dead. In doing so, she is forced to do the one thing he asked her not to: involve Cannon.
But the search for Lachlan comes with a price. Addison is forced deeper into her debt, just as her life is put in jeopardy when a new danger surfaces. One from her past, stirring up inner demons threatening to take her back to hell.
Now Addison must find a way to kill a supernatural being she’s never even heard of, all while protecting her heart from its love for Lachlan, and its confusing stirrings toward Cannon. It was so much easier to hate the vampires.
Things are not always what they seem in Addison’s world. The fight to save Lachlan will test her strength, her conviction, and her skill as a Pusher. Will she survive unscathed, or will she let the demons win?

Even the gods cannot betray the will of the stars. It’s been a hundred years since she’s warmed my bed, a hundred years spent waiting for her.

ARES 

The city stretched up like quartz against the fading sunlight, the colors of the sky deepening with every second that slipped by. Ares’s eyes were on the horizon, slashed with the darkening skyscrapers at the southern tip of Manhattan, but his mind was a thousand years behind him, and her face filled the space in between. 

They were Mars and Venus. Man and woman. Ares and Aphrodite. The bond between them was unbreakable, undeniable, no matter how she had tried to reject it, tried to stay away. She’d never quite succeeded. She never would. 

Even the gods could not betray the will of the stars. 

It had been a hundred years since she warmed his bed, a hundred years of waiting for her. Now they would compete again in a game that mattered little to him. His prize was far greater than a token to be paid for a favor — he wanted her. And for the first time in a very long time, he had a chance to keep her. 

Adonis had been in the way far too long — even murdering the human hadn’t removed him from the equation — but now the ground had shifted, tilted in Ares’s favor, and with Aphrodite’s footing unsteady, she would fall. 

He would catch her. 

This time, he wouldn’t let go. 

Ares had already chosen his human player, and soon he would make his way down to the throng of gods who waited for the game to begin. She would be there. She would make her choice, and the fire between them would ignite as it always did — first with a spark, then a flicker. Then, she would be consumed, and so would he. 

It would be the same as it ever was, and he was so starved for her, his body tensed from head to heart to heel in anticipation of what was to come. 

From a hundred years down to a few days, the distance traveled worth every second of longing, and with every moment that passed, the stars moved closer to alignment and to his favor. And there was nothing she could do to fight it. 

He’d see to that.

Heart of a Lion ~ Review

Heart of a Lion
Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy ~ Book #2
by Stephen Zimmer
Publication Date:
Rayden Valkyrie. She walks alone, serving no king, emperor, or master. Forged in the fires of tragedy, she has no place she truly calls home.

A deadly warrior wielding both blade and axe, Rayden is the bane of the wicked and corrupt. To many others, she is the most loyal and dedicated of friends, an ally who is unyielding in the most dangerous of circumstances.

The people of the far southern lands she has just aided claim that she has the heart of a lion. For Rayden, a long journey to the lands of the far northern tribes who adopted her as a child beckons, with an ocean lying in between.

Her path will lead her once more into the center of a maelstrom, one involving a rising empire that is said to be making use of the darkest kinds of sorcery to grow its power. Making new friends and discoveries amid tremendous peril, Rayden makes her way to the north.

Monstrous beasts, supernatural powers, and the bloody specter of war have been a part of her world for a long time and this journey will be no different. Rayden chooses the battles that she will fight, whether she takes up the cause of one individual or an entire people.

Both friends and enemies alike will swiftly learn that the people of the far southern lands spoke truly. Rayden Valkyrie has the heart of a lion.


Heart of a Lion is Book One of the Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy. 



Spellbound!!, August 17, 2017

I am completely in love with this world in which Zimmer brings us a modge podge of characters who are truly unique & full of courage, honor, & wonder including a hard core heroine & her comrades who are willing to dish out punishment to any who deserve it. Oh but let's not forget the culprits of the prior anger...those who wish to strangle the life & soul out of anyone they deem lesser than themselves or who fail to bow down before them or their rules. Being my first book by this author I am very impressed with his ability to mix such passion, fear, & rage without crushing the souls of those he created (& ours too). It is a difficult task to balance the dark & light, & I feel he did it wonderfully! 

*This world is definitely not for the faint of heart as these characters have been through things most can not even imagine. Be aware that there are a few intense topics including slavery & abuse as well as some gruesome battle scenes that may cause some queasiness & or anger, but be assured Zimmer's characters demand justice while dishing out payments due.

The heroine: Rayden Valkyrie is truly kick @$$! She is not afraid to speak her mind & holds all she meets to a specific set of standards. Those who do not adhere to her moral code best watch out! Rayden won me over the moment she jumped in to protect & save the innocent, & fascinated me more with each page thereafter. 

Her team (who quickly became more) also stole my heart. Each with their own struggles of overcoming past tragedies & fighting for what's right...or simply claiming vengeance for what has been stolen from them. Regardless, it was hard to put this book down ESPECIALLY once a battle began. Every scene was so intense, motivating, heart crushing, & action packed!! I only wish more people were held to such morals as this crew truly understands what happens when those are lost (or taken). 

If you are a fan of fantastical stories of epic proportions you should give this one a go!


Thunder Horizon
Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy ~ Book #2
A deadly menace stalks the shadows of the lands to the north, stirring the winds of war. Farther south, the power of the Teveren Empire spreads with every passing day, empowered by dark sorcery. Formidable legions bent on conquest are on the march, slavery and subjugation following in their wake.

Within the rising maelstrom, Rayden Valkyrie has returned to the Gessa, to stand with the tribe that once took her into their care as a child. No amount of jewels or coin can sway her, nor can the great power of her adversaries intimidate her.

With a sword blade in her right hand and axe in her left, Rayden confronts foes both supernatural and of flesh and blood. Horrific revelations and tremendous risks loom; some that will see Rayden's survival in the gravest of peril.

Even if Rayden and the Gessa survive the trials plaguing their lands, the thunder of an even darker storm booms across the far horizon.

Thunder Horizon is the second book in the Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy.
