Bookanista Review of Chandra Hahn's IRON BUTTERFLY


This is a little late getting up, but it is time for another Bookanista review. I am so excited about today's review of Chandra Hahn's IRON BUTTERFLY! I will tell you, I am a new, hardcore Chandra fan after this book! She is such a talented writer. But before I get into all of that, here is the list of what all of the Bookanistas are talking about today:
On to my review -

About IRON BUTTERFLY by Chandra Hahn
Imprisoned, starved and left with no memories, Thalia awakens to find herself at the mercy of an evil cult known as the Septori. Their leader has chosen Thalia as the test subject for a torture device of untold power, designed to change and twist her into something that is neither human nor Denai.

Escaping, Thalia finds an unwilling warrior to protect her and an unlikely Denai to befriend her. After finding a home at the Citadel as a servant, Thalia’s worst nightmare comes to life and she begins to show signs of power. Scared and unable to control her gifts, she tries to hide her past to fit in among the Denai. But the Septori want their latest test subject back and will stop at nothing to retrieve her, dead or alive.
What Others Are Saying (From Amazon):
"Hahn proves her mettle as a fantasy writer, layering the historic events and political concerns of the world she has created with a twisting romance that will leave you wondering about Thalia's past, and which of her suitors keeps the secret that will unlock her future. "The Iron Butterfly" is a gripping, enjoyable, and immersive read that will have you cheering for Thalia and fearing for her life" -Lovestruck Literary


Why I liked it: 
I don't really know where to begin - I picked up IRON BUTTERFLY because I wanted to read some of Chandra's writing and holy WOW! I am seriously hooked. Not only does she create a setting that is both believable and fantastic, she creates characters that I care about from page one all the way through the end. Her writing kept me flipping pages into the wee hours of the morning. This is something that is a MUST READ and proves, yet again, the amazing Indie writer's you can find. I know I am a fangirl of Chandra's for life now!

Check it out on Amazon and other fine retailers!

    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…

    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…
