We ♥ Lykans...well I do anyway!

Hello there!

So, the age old battle of Vamps Vs Weres is over: in my mind anyway.
I'll admit that, for a super long amount of time, it was the cold, bloodthristy, inhumanly beautiful (apparently sparkly) vampires that had won my heart. But, my mind has been changed...for good.

Now, if you read my interview with Blaire kensley you'd know that she's a vampire kinda gal.In her mind the shedding would get to her...a very valid point. So I guess we're on different teams now...

What changed my mind you ask?
Well, naturally, a book did. Not just any book; an awesome, one-of-a-kind tale told in three parts (yes, a trilogy.)

Behold....


TALES OF THE LUNARMORTE
by Samantha Young

  MOON SPELL (#1)

 Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?

No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.


But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.
So here's the twist on the supernatural world we all know: Vampyres and Lykans are not enimies. In fact they're both on the same team. Weird right? Wrong, this makes the book even better, especially as the second in the series shows us more of the Vampyres (Yep, that's how this series spell sit, it's been done before.) Oh and that's the stunningly beatiful Caia on the cover don'tcha know?!

We learn so much about Lykan customs, which are extremely similar to a wolf pack's customs, that you can actually feel like one of the pack. It's just a shame she gets the gorgeous broody Alpha male and not us. *Sigh*

RIVER CAST (#2)

 
  Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

Swept into the world of the Daylight Coven, Caia is caught between her loyalty to the Daylights and her new insight into the hearts of the Midnights. As more obstacles are thrown in her and Lucien's way, Caia is pushed further adrift from him and Pack Errante. With no one to turn to, Caia has to make the most difficult choice of all...


Who does she truly belong with? The Daylights or the Midnights?






So much happens in this second book it sets your head spinning...in a good way! I'll admit the whole time I was waiting for one thing on particular to happen (regarding a certain protagonists love life) and- just when i'd lost hope- BAM! Don't get me wrong, I crave for a story where the girl kicks butt and isn't wrapped up in a love story but this one was refreshing. Try it, for yourself.

BLOOD SOLSTICE (#3)

 

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance...

In the final installment of The Tale of Lunarmorte, Caia is caught between the most powerful beings in her world, and they are all desperate to use her for their own means. While Caia struggles to find her purpose, tragedy strikes close to home, and time runs out.
Now she must decide if she will join the extremists she was trying to destroy... or bring them all down on her own terms...




I have something to admit now....I haven't read this one yet. Wait! I can explain. You see my lovely father, has given me access to his little piece of plastic. Yes, I have access to his bank account and, naturally, I spent quite a bit on books fro my new Kindle (Squeeee!) However, I actually need to give his bank account a breather before I buy another book. Alas, I do have the sample ready and waiting on my Kindle. Those things are never enough though, are they?

So, what are you waiting for? Buy the books! Or at least buy the first one (It's only £0.72 on Kindle, at Amazon clearly.)
