CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

a white knight dipped in black leather    5 GOLD SOULS

Kiss. Bed. Naked...Sex. Mystery. Danger. Smile. Eyes. Protection from...vampires.  So, what’s next, my sexy immortal?  OH HOLY BLOOD KNIGHTS!!  What an ABSO-BLOODY-LUTELY FANGNOMENAL book!  WOW!  I am COMPLETELY blown away by how much I love, Love, LOVE this story!  My first taste of Linda's writing was when I recently read her story Dewitched in A Wicked Halloween box set and while I LOVED IT, it also left me craving for more!  So after much deliberation - she does have a LOT of mouth-watering books to choose from - I decided I wanted - NEEDED - to read Immortal Redeemed and it made one helluva impression!  So much so that I am left with an ever bigger problem - which book to read next???  :)  The story itself is BEYOND SOULTACULAR captivating me, ensnaring me from the cover & never letting me go!  It is a little different than I expected, but that is a great thing!  The heat level is there, but not heavily detailed, leaving the focus of their connection to each other to be more than "just physical".  Mouths meeting. Bodies merging. Two lost souls finding each other.  There is a lot of weight to the story as you would expect from an original Knight of the Round Table, but Linda does this so ABSO-FANG-LUTELY PERFECT that you can't help but be swept away from your world & life and into Kellan & McKenna's!  The characters are so multifaceted, so complex, so REAL that I feel like this is more of a combined autobiography than a fictional story!  The power this book has over me is SO HEARTMAZING, it is so hard to put it into words!  Instantaneously I was transported into it, seeing, hearing, thinking, feeling, BEING Kellan, than becoming McKenna, sharing, experiencing, LIVING this momentous & soul changing part of their lives with them!  Having always dreamt of an immortal soul mate (okay!  A vampire soul mate... originally, but now that I have met other kinds – like Kellan, I am not so fussy! wink), Linda has given me that... or at least for a while!  I did have to give him over to McKenna in the end!  But it is still a gift I cherish!  :-)  The attention to EVERY detail, the expertly detailed descriptions not only bring every aspect of the story to life in my mind’s eye, but they are perfectly timed, never overloading you, never dragging or slowing down the pace of the story but rather are so perfectly balanced it enhances, enriches and gives depth to the characters, the storylines and to the story as a whole, in ways that are next-to-impossible to define or explain!  You truly need to read it to believe it! To understand it!  TO LIVE & LOVE IT!!!  Of the hundreds of books I read each and every year, only those rare few affect me so deeply, that resonate within me, leaving me overwhelmed with emotion & in awe of the power that story has over me, and Immortal Redeemed is that book!  The way that Linda tells the story, the beautifully unique & creativity of Kellan & his immortal "status", his history, McKenna and the two souls, the past lives that... well, let's just say that I found EVERY SINGLE ASPECT undeniable proof of just how phenomenally talented Linda truly is!!  I am now beyond eager to binge on all of Linda's books and catch up on all of these PARA-NOMENAL books that have been missing from my tablet, my reading life and my heart & soul!  I have no doubt whatsoever that I will love, Love, LOVE them all!  Immortal Redeemed, Kellan, McKenna and their story has consumed me wholly, utterly & completely - mind, body, heart and souls!  A woman’s lips had been the last thing he’d felt before his new, resurrected life began.  Now a woman’s touch might cause the end of that second round of life.  And of all the beings in the world, it would have to be you, McKenna Randall.  At the end.

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

Have you ever understood what you do to me?     4 GOLD FANGS

You were my blood.  Inside me. My Soul.  You had me at VAMPIRE!!  Now I confess to being drawn to this book for 2 reasons - vampires and VAMPIRES!!  Okay, and that GORGEOUS cover!  I didn't even fully read the blurb!  I already knew I would read it.  It had "vampire" and that truly was all I did need to know!  I started it feeling a touch lost, so I went and read the description, realized his name IS Light, then continued reading, reading and even more reading straight through to the end, stopping only for a bite of sleep!  This is ABSO-FANGING-LUTELY one of the most unique & ingenious Vampire books I have EVER read!  That being said, it is VERY different, thought-provoking even, almost making you reflect on Humanity as a whole from someone who is no longer purely Human.  It almost was a “heavy” read for me, not in a bad way or anything, but not something I “breezed” through.  Although it very easily could've been a long, hard read.  But with Rosemary's exceptionally creative writing style (for lack of a better term) it COMPLETELY captured me in its fangs, NEVER letting me go!  (Thankfully no harm came to this reader!)  Actually the very descriptive, almost poetic writing style reminded me very much of Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles.  This is so intriguingly well-written!  The story flow, the characters, the unique angles & viewpoints of us mere humans, the First Lifers vs the Blood Lifers, it is all truly VAMPTACULAR!!!  PURE GENIUS!!  The first-person point of view is so much more than "just" a point of view!  It's more like reading your own memoir that you penned by hand through the years, but now you are suffering from memory loss in your advanced age and don't remember it.  But as you are reading it feels familiar, deja vu, like you experienced it, truly lived  it all, but now you think it’s just a fiction novel you picked up to read.  I wish that Rosemary had included a glossary/definition/translation because I did have a bit of trouble following the language/terms in the beginning (nut = head, mush = face, bird = female/lady/woman, etc.) which slowed me down a bit, in some places I felt like I didn't grasp it at all, so I was backtracking to read the part over again, but I quickly realized that by continuing to read, the words/parts that confused me settled out.  And just because I'm not used to these words, phrases, terminology doesn't mean everyone else will have the same "issues".  It's all English to me!  bwahahaha  There was one part I came to that I just couldn't grasp the wording to understand what was going on, so I backtracked a bit and re-read that section, still didn't think I had the correct thing so I decided to just keep reading.  HA!  That did the trick!  I DID get the meaning the first time!  So from that point on, I just kept reading and before I was even maybe 10 or 15% in (of a close to 600 page story!), I realized that I was understanding almost everything and the story fluidly moved forward... until I reached the end of course!  Wink  This is obviously my first taste of Rosemary's writings, but consider me a Lifer - preferably a Blood Lifer!  wink  Her FANGNOMENAL talent shines through as bright as the sun on Light in his garage!  Now that I timed this to finish as book 2 is being delivered to my hot little hands as we speak, I am SUPER eager to see where Light will take me next!  Life’s like that: it bites you where it hurts.  The dawn came and you weren’t there. The dawn came and you weren’t…

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

what happens in this journal, stays in this journal.       4 SILVER RINGS

You can’t flay a rebel’s Soul.  WHOA... I don't even know what to say!  After finishing Blood Dragons (book 1) and going straight into this book, I still feel so attached to Light that this story he's just finished telling me is just so... personal, so... intimate and dare I say horrific?  It totally got MY SHACKLES up, just from reading it, never mind feeling, experiencing it all with him, even AS Light, to a fang point.  I may be a slave to my vampiric desires, but never a bloody slave!  This is one very different vampire book, like nothing I have ever read before, and I have read a LOT of vampire books over the years!  It's not for the faint of heart though.  Nor is it your "typical" romance story.  Actually, there isn't ANYTHING "typical" about it!  And that is EXACTLY why I fell for Light.  Now that I have pretty well adjusted, adapted, to Light's speech I find that this book flew through the pages!  Maybe the modern side of it helped a bit as well, a little something-something to relate to without even thinking of it, without even realizing it!  Of course, Mistress played a HUGE part in this as well!  The mystery of her - the REAL her - drew me in like a moth to Light!  After one horrific part, I bawled so hard for Light!  It shocked me because I didn't realize I was THAT attached to him or the story, for that matter.  At least not in that way.  While there is a lot to like - even love -  about this book & series, I found that some of the parts I truly wanted to live through Light were pretty ambiguous, yet some of the most horrible horrors were greatly detailed.  Now some of that could be because of the terminology, me understanding its meaning one way, when it was completely the opposite.  Regardless, I still did enjoy this series and will eagerly await the next book!  Rosemary is one bloody VAMPIRETASTIC author, talented beyond a slave shadow of Light!  The way the story is told - reading the journal of the main character - is bloody brilliant!  It's personal without being personal.  By that I mean that I did experience everything with Light, but through his eyes, rather than me becoming him.  I'm not sure that explains it, but I think when you read the book, you will understand what I mean.  It was every one of my revenge fantasies come true. It was…justice. Blood Lifer justice.  It felt like absolution for us all.  You’d saved me, when I was lost.

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

Don't you want to experience the ecstasy of my bite?   5 BLOODY VAMPIRE KISSES

 

WHOLLY HOTNESS!  Talk about a FANGASMIC story!  Each part adds more depth, further enriching their hole... I mean the story as a whole! wink  Yes this as naughty as they come, but there is a VAMPTASTIC story entwined in & around it that takes me, I mean IT to new heights!  And the twists, turns & shocks in each part always manage to make me gasp!  After reading each part I find myself simultaneously satiated and yet ready & eager for more!  No easy feat, I assure you!  But Reed definitely knows how to use his VAMPHENOMENAL talent to grab me, enthrall me and actually make me thankful this IS a "serial"!!  I don't think I could handle his full Vampy power of a story all at once!! But oh I am so looking forward to find out... well once all but the last part are FINALLY released so I can REED them all to time with the Grande Finale's release! WHOOT

Space Ranger Lea Kirk


Space Ranger which is currently only available in the Pets in Space Charity Anthology

 

 

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Graig Roble is a Senior Commander of security for the Guardian Fleet. His specialty as a weapons specialist and combat master is his world, what he was born to do - or so he thought until he finds his resolve and focus inexplicably wavering. His new position aboard the Atlantis can't even save him; if anything, it has left him questioning his own motives. He never thought that could happen until he met Simone Campbell.

 

Simone's focus is on her home world - Earth. She thought her life was full with her research as a botanist. After all, she always believed that helping the people of her world become self-sufficient should take all of her concentration - except it doesn't. There is one man that keeps pulling her attention, and her heart, away from her job.

 

Graig's gift of a puppy to keep her company does more than that, it keeps him in her dreams. How can such a simple gift bring her comfort and make her long for more? Graig and Simone are about to find out that sometimes love can blossom from the smallest, furriest ties.

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

(edited/amended from full review of collection)

One FURTASTIC STORY!!    9 GOLD PAWS UP

 

Can anything possibly be better than having pets and sci-fi romance combined together?  How about having it told by one of the most SPACETACULAR authors out there?  Then add in the fact that 10% of the first month’s profits go to Hero-Dogs.org. and you get one ABSO-FURRY-LUTELY PAWFECT story (and collection) to make you purrrrrr... and if you are a sap like me, you will probably shed a few tears, maybe even howl too!  What can I say?  I am a sucker for stories told from the PAWINT of view of a defenseless little one!  Which is why I couldn't help but whimper with poor little soon-to-be Ranger in Lea Kirk's story in this collection!  Of course the ending made it all worthwhile!  And for the record Ranger, I love puppy kisses!  wink  I fell in love with Lea's debut release Prophecy and am LOVING this short story that continues that SPACETASTIC series!  Having it told in part through the eyes of a little puppy was adorable!!!  And getting more story about Simone & Graig made my heart soar!!!  Has me even MORE eager for the release of Salvation (book 2 in the Prophecy series) and I have been chomping to get my paws on that from the moment I finished Prophecy (book 1)!!!  Lea Kirk is one FURNOMENALLY talented author with a true gift for creating stories that are not only out of this world, but stories that transport me to new worlds with them!

The emotions stirring in her heart for the former Army colonel war with her feelings for Dave. Can she let go of the past and embrace her future before it's too late?

EXCERPTS

 

“How close are you?” Garrison’s question pulled her from her musings. “Till the baby comes, I mean.”

“My due date is in eight days.” That ought to freak him out.

His eyebrows notched up and concern flickered in his eyes. “Should you be out here walking around alone?”

April smothered the laugh bubbling inside her. “Relax, Garrison. The worst that could happen is my water breaks and I make a mess on a dirt road. First babies generally take their time about being born, and Healer Dacian’s infirmary is only a block away.”

He returned her smile with full-fledged grin, then enveloped her hand with his much larger one. “Sorry.”

*****

“Would you like company?” What had possessed him to ask that? The part of you that finds her adorable in that jumper, and the way it brushes against her rounded belly…. Jesus, Reed!

 

*****

 

He froze, his eyes transfixed by the sight before him. April stood over the sink, her head resting on her arms against the mirror. Droplets of water clung to her naked body. Damp, dark-gold tendrils of hair stuck to her neck, shoulders and back. He couldn’t stop his gaze from traveling downward. Faint silvery lines etched her softly rounded belly, signifying her hard-earned rank of motherhood. Each line was a badge of honor in his eyes.

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

All of Me indeed!     5 GOLD STARS

 

I LOVE IT!!  This is a SPACETASTIC short story that takes place after Prophecy ends, a side story with different characters.  And what incredible characters too!    The birthing scene?!?  I couldn't stop laughing! Seriously!!  The rest of the story?  WOW!  Talk about powerful!  On ALL levels!  And the ending?!?  WHOA!  Lea has definitely showcased her astronomical talent & exceptional gift with this shorter story because I fell instantly into it, attached to the characters just from the "about" page!  And given how much I cried (and how many times I had to pause & calm down, especially at the ending, in order to keep reading), I think it is more than safe to say that this story affected me deep into my Animi.  I often find myself having a harder time connecting with short stories, but that is soooo NOT the case this time!  I fell in love with Lea's storytelling with Prophecy and while I am *cough* impatiently *cough* eagerly awaiting my next STELLAR adventure, this story, rather than "appease" my desire for more, it actually INCREASED it!  I ABSO-MATIRAN-LUTELY CANNOT wait to travel with Lea, Alex, Gryf, Nick and the rest of my friends!

HOLY MOTHER!!  Lea hit the MOTHERLOAD with this one!!  I don't know if there are enough words to convey just how FANTASTIC this story is or just how much I LOVE it!!!  Right from the very start I was deeply ensconced in the story, living it with the characters all the way through to the very end!  When reading this book, you would NEVER guess that this is Lea's first book!  The descriptions, the attention to detail given for every little bit of it, the numerous characters of all ages & species, and oh so very much more, is all so beautifully crafted and works so perfectly together to create one helluva deep & enriched story that literally beams you into a whole new world... or three!  I found myself living and experiencing the story right from the very first sentence, taking me on this incredibly amazing journey that had me so emotionally & mentally invested I couldn't tell what was real or fiction!  And honestly?  I didn’t CARE what was real or not!  As long as I could stay with Alex & Gryf, then that was my reality and that is more than great enough for me!  It truly touched me all the way deep down into my soul & spirit!  The intricacies involving the Prophecy, word & name meanings, how they relate or complement each other, etc. blew me away!  Again, the attention to the little details like what Alex’s name means, defies description and is above & beyond SPACETASTIC!!  The care & attention to every single little detail is what makes this become so much more than a story, or even an adventure!  I truly felt like I was on this mind-blowing, nix that, SOUL-BLOWING SPACERRIFIC mission!!  Not once was I bored or lost, I never had problems following the story, understanding what was going on, etc.  In fact, I had an extremely hard time putting it down!  IT TRULY IS ONE SPACETACULAR STORY!!!  And there is SO MUCH story content to love!  The humor and sound bites from various Sci-Fi movies/shows & books had me belly laughing and a couple times I was laughing so hard I had tears!  Thank goodness I was reading this curled up in bed!  The connections that I had to/with the characters was unbelievable!  From the main characters, right down to minor, minor characters, they all had my attention.  When one of the kids achieved something – minor or major – I felt like a proud parent!  When Alex discovered a new talent, or mastered something, I felt like I accomplished it!  Some of the things I consider when reviewing a book is how I relate to the characters, IF I can relate to them, do I become a part of the story via the characters, do I LIVE the story AS the characters, do I SEE the scenery & the characters, does everything play out in my mind.  Well for Lea’s book Prophecy – I would enthusiastically rate this book 1 million gold stars if I could!  Immediately I was living the story both with and as the characters, I could feel their fear, see how scared they were, how betrayed some were, etc.  Honestly, I don’t know how to express just how much I LOVE this ALIENTACULAR story!!!  I love how Lea has created a whole new race of aliens that are similar to humans, but yet so different!  Then there are the other aliens that are nothing like humans at all!  I love the new languages, how there are words & phrases integrated throughout that you actually forget aren't 'real' words, but yet you understand them, know exactly what they mean, which adds even more depth & richness to the whole experience!  I can honestly say that I have never read a book like this one!  EVER!  And that is a GREAT thing, trust me!  It’s a compliment of the highest order!  The characters are all intriguing, well developed, even the "Bad Guys", although not a lot of time is spent with the bad guys, but you can still appreciate the time and effort that was put into creating ALL of the characters!  Not once did this story have any "errors" in it, meaning that the storyline was fluid, flowing smoothly & more importantly - consistently!  And can I just say that it is utterly AWESOME to FINALLY get a full-length book and one that honestly could have been longer!  Coming in at around 300 or so pages, not one page, paragraph or even a sentence was wasted, unnecessary or something I would consider as "filler"!  That is definitely something worth mentioning, especially in this day & age of serials, shorts, etc.  Well done Lea!!!!  I don’t mean to keep pointing it out, or over-emphasizing this, but I do think it is important because it really gives you an understanding of just how talented Lea truly is!!! For a first time author Lea did a PHENOMENAL job!  Scratch that!  For an author period, this is a FANTASTIC creation!!  It is a work of art!  My ONE & ONLY complaint is that the next book(s) are not yet out!!!  I truly cannot wait for the chance to visit Matir, catch up with my new friends and live some more adventures with them!!  ALL IN ALL - YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!  So run your fingers & mouse right over to your e-store of choice and buy this book today!!

CHERRI-ANNE’S REVIEW:

We will do all we can to save them.    5 cherry blossoms

 

One thing was clearer than anything. Failure was not an option.  Sometimes life just sucked.  Had Death just laughed at him?  Are you ready?  Ready to embark on a journey like no other?  Well strap yourself into your seat because this interplanetary transport ship is going to take you on one exciting, shocking, amazing, heart-wrenching, heart-warming, emotional, out of this world TREMATIRANDOUS adventure to find friendship, love, healing, faith in yourself, your gift, and Salvation!  WOW!!  This is one BOCKTACULAR story that focuses on Sakura Yamata & Nicholaus Bock or "Brother of our esteemed Profeta" as the Matiran's refer to him.  I have to say that when I found out this book is set seven years after Prophecy, I was worried that the magic would be lost, that maybe I wouldn’t love it just as much as I do love Prophecy, but WOW!!  That could not have been more further from the truth!!!  I ABSO-NULKING-LUTELY love, Love, LOVE this book!!  I love the characters, the updates on everyone, just EVERYTHING!!!  Well except the sad parts, but by now we all know that those lows make the highs that much sweeter!  Like cherry blossom sweeter!  I fell in love with Alex & Gryf the moment I met them in Prophecy (book 1 of the series) and was really hoping that we would continue with them in future books.  When I saw it was about Alex’s brother Nick, I will admit to being a touch disappointed (I DID say that I fell in love with Alex & Gryf and I meant in!), but then I was excited to see what Nick was up to and why he did what he did, chose a different path, and just get to know him.  Lea did not disappoint in the slightest!  In fact, I actually fell for Nick *almost* as quickly as I did with Alex!  J  And Sakura?  She was an enigma that I was determined to understand and discover her secrets, because there is no doubt that she harbors something big that she doesn’t want ANYONE to know about!  For the record, I DO love this story as much as Prophecy and I do love Nick & Saku!!  I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the very same “aliens” that we briefly met in book 1, that helped our heroes escape and survive.  And to be able to live with them on another planet?!?  WHOOOT!  Then there is that moment when Saku & Nick joined minds!  It was so beautiful, so precious, so perfectly PERFECT it brought tears to MY eyes!  But then again, it is a Lea Kirk book!  The way she tells a story goes way beyond, much deeper, than “just reading a book”.  It truly is a full-fledged, all around all sensory experience!  Lea doesn’t just have you read the book.  She transports you into the story, so that you not only live the story with the characters, you BECOME the characters!  You experience everything with them, for them and AS THEM, and REALLY see - feel - inside their hearts & minds, giving you a gift that is too precious for mere words!  I honestly cannot think of adequate words that share my love and excitement for this series, especially without leaking some spoilers!!!!  Trust me!  This is definitely a series you should – NEED to – read!  I was so completely absorbed into the story that I couldn't tell where the book left off and I started!  Or where I left off and the book started!  I laughed, cried, cringed, worried, relaxed, held my breath, gasped and every other reaction right along with - as - Nick, Saku, Dante and even for her brief appearance, with & as Alex!  In fact I was so absorbed into the story I apparently didn't even hear the voices OUTSIDE of my head!!  oops!  Sorry Mom!  When reading this book, I had the sensation of being encased in warm, soft, fuzzy cuddles, that stayed with me for the entire story.  At first I thought it was because I was just so excited to FINALLY read more in this SPACETASTIC series (I say “finally” because as soon as I finished Prophecy I immediately wanted more, More, MORE to read simply because it was that great and I loved it that much!).  But then I realized it was something more preternatural – LEA’S GIFT!!!  It is Lea's Gift that comes across to me like warm, soft, fuzzy, cuddles.  Just like when I get all comfy in my pjs & settled in to read a SPACETACULAR Lea Kirk book!!  Lea is without a doubt, hands down, a Master of the highest level with her Gift - the Gift to create SCI-FINOMENAL stories!!  The very kind of stories that transport me to another time and place where "aliens" are not only real, but close friends, family, even mates!  If you are looking for a series that will take you hostage, that will take you on an epic adventure like no other, then THIS IS THE SERIES FOR YOU!!!! 

 



 

AUTHOR BIO:

Lea Kirk loves to transport her readers to other worlds with her science fiction romances. Her fascination with science fiction began at six years old when her dad introduced her to the original Star Trek TV series. She fell in love with the show, and was even known to run through her parents’ house wearing the tunic top of her red knit pantsuit and her white go-go boots pretending to be Lieutenant Uhura. By nine years old she knew she wanted to be a writer, and in her teens she read her first romance and was hooked.

 

Ms. Kirk lives with her wonderful hubby of twenty-six years, their five kids (aka, the nerd herd), and a Doberman who is convinced he's a people.
