Hello everyone! I’m so happy today to be part of the Crave the Darkness Blurb Blitz (March 5th), the third book of the amazing series: Shaede Assassin by Amanda Bonilla. You know her, right? Because if it’s not the case you really need to buy and read the first book! All of them are just awesome and Amanda has an incredible talent.
I think it’s always difficult to make a difference with the Urban Fantasy books because we can find many of them today. But the author succeeded in this challenge, and even more. She created an explosive, dynamic mix which leads us in a new universe we don’t want to leave. Indeed, once started, we instantly get into the story and it’s really difficult to put the books down before finishing them. Well, you can understand now that this series blew my mind away!
But what about the story? Darian is a Shaede, an assassin who can sleep slip into darkness, a kick-ass heroine as we love them. She is also a loner until she knows Tyler. Indeed, we discover a Jinn who will do everything he can to help and protect our heroine. And when I say everything, it’s really everything! It was fun and cute to see them evolving together, Tyler, trying to expose his feelings to her and Darian trying to stay away from him. So many things happen in the books and Amanda Bonilla was beautifully able to recreate the feelings of the characters throughout the books, love as well as sorrow. It’s a series full of action, trouble, battles and magic. I won’t tell more, but there is so much to explain, many characters, many events. I can only say one thing, buy it, read it, and you’ll love it!
Crave the Darkness (Shaede Assassin, 3) – Amanda Bonilla
Nothing comes easy for Darian. Her heightened powers make her indispensable to the Shaede Nation, but dangerous missions have driven her lover, Tyler, to his breaking point. Darian must salvage their bond, but a new assignment to protect Anya—a fellow Shaede and the first of their kind to become pregnant in centuries—stands in their way.
It doesn’t help that the two Shaedes are longtime rivals and share nothing besides mutual hatred. But when it becomes clear that someone—or something—is bent on destroying the expectant mother and her unborn child, Darian must put her feelings aside and track down Anya’s would-be assassin.
As she probes into Anya’s past, Darian digs up long-buried secrets—and a connection between Tyler and the mission that could destroy everything between them…
You want more? Of course you do! Here is a little excerpt to make you wait for the release date!
Supernatural energy snaked across my skin—faint, almost too subtle to identify—and I stopped dead in my tracks. A man stepped out from the shadows of the towering Columbia Center skyscraper, and I reached for the dagger I’d tucked back into my waistband.
Beautiful. Angelically so with golden blond hair and icy blue eyes that backed up his connection to something heavenly. He strode right up to me with a confident swagger that only enhanced his perfection. A soft blush painted his cheeks and his lips spread into a sweet, cajoling smile. Good lord, he was damn near blinding to look at.
“You’re trouble, aren’t you?”
Not the worst thing I’d ever been called.
“And not a Shaede, either. Not exactly.” He reached up with his right hand, palm facing me as if he were feeling the air around me. “Delicious energy. Powerful.”
Okaaaay. “You must be the asshole I should be introducing to my dagger right now.” I allowed a glance behind me; the sirens were getting too close for my comfort. A slew of human police would converge on the street in a matter of seconds. This was not the time or the place for a supernatural showdown.
The angel’s smile didn’t fade. “Tell Anya her past has caught up to her. She knows what I want and tell her to watch her back.”
Without thinking, I lunged, thrusting the dagger in front of me. I stumbled, stabbing nothing but air. I spun a circle, ready for anything and expecting an ambush. The bastard vanished, leaving nothing but a shimmer in the fabric of reality with his passing.
Don’t you just hate it when your day goes to shit?
