A Bookanista Booyah for WOLFSBANE

HAPPY THURSDAY everyone! I've been busy getting things ready for the launch of DIES IRAE on 2/1; but in between the busyness, I've been trying to knock out a few books from the TBR pile, finishing 4 books in the last few weeks. WOOT!

Now, before I get to my Bookanista shout out for one of those books, I wanted to wish a HUGE Bookanista welcome to our newest Bookanistas - Tracy Banghart, Genniger Albin, Jessica Love, and Hilary Wagner. I am so thrilled to have these wonderful peeps join the insanity!!!

On to my Bookanista Shout out for WOLFSBANE: Book 2 in the Nightshade Series by Andrea Cremer

Release Date: 7/26/2011

Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)
This thrilling sequel to the much-talked-about Nightshade begins just where it ended-Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemy, and she's certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer-one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack-and the man-she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.
Why I liked it: 
I'll be honest - I am very jaded when it comes to sequels. While I typically love companion novels, I struggle with many sequels. I don't know if this is because of the backtracking, or because some stories deteriorate into a tangled mass of cliches. Whatever it is, I am jaded.

Enter Wolfsbane. I really enjoyed it. And yes, there were moments when it was a tangled mess of love triangle cliche, lies and such. However, it was also so much more. There was a deeper exploration of the mythos behind the story, a deeper delve into the past history. And THAT is what I loved and appreciated so much.
I am truly looking forward to reading Bloodrose, the last of the trilogy, and will likely buy it soon.

Yea, we're crazy like that!

What are you reading these days?


  1. I really enjoyed Wolfsbane too. I have Bloodrose on hold at the library. Can't wait for it to come in.

    I'm reading Beautiful Chaos and just finished A Million Suns, which was an awesome sequel.

  2. I've heard so many good things about this series. I'm definitely going to have to check it out. And thanks for the welcome! So excited to be joining such a fabulous group! :-)

  3. I loved this book too. Now I just need to get the third one.

  4. I haven't really heard of this book. But it sounds like it may be a good idea to check out the first book in the series then make my way to the sequel.

    Thanks for the Bookanista review.

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
