Book Blitz & Giveaway - Out of the Shadows by Ashlee Nicole Bye



Out of the Shadows
Author: Ashlee Nicole Bye
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 2017

Book Description:
From the streets of Melbourne to the bowels of Westminster, the delicate balance between life and death that is so painstakingly maintained by the reapers of The Order of Dark and Light is being tested by the return of an ancient threat. Tensions are rising within the hidden world of The Shadowlands and if this threat is not contained war will be inevitable. And the destruction of the human world is bound to follow in its wake.

Amidst this tension, eighteen year-old Sachi Manning is struggling to cope with the grief and guilt that has plagued her ever since her best friend was murdered six months earlier—that is, until she spots him seemingly alive and well and being held at scythe point by a hooded figure who looks more like a GQ model than the Grim Reaper.

Sachi shouldn’t be able to see through the glamours that shield Shadowlanders from the human world, so the reaper in question wants some answers. And so begins the craziest couple of weeks of Sachi’s life as she is drawn into a world of mysteries, magic, monsters, and mayhem, encountering dragons, faeries, soul-sucking demons, not-so-grim reapers, and even the Horseman of Death.

With a mix of heart, humour and hair-raising action, Out of the Shadows is the adventure of an afterlifetime, perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and Paula Weston.

Blog Tour Spotlight - Greco's Game by James Houston Turner



Greco's Game
Author: James Houston Turner
Genre: Thriller / Suspense / Action / Romance
Date Published: November 1, 2017
Publisher: Regis Books

Book Description:
Colonel Aleksandr Talanov – the “ice man” – is married to a woman he wishes he could love. But he can’t, and it’s an ugly consequence of his training with the KGB. Even so, no one should have to experience what Talanov experiences: the brutal murder of his wife in front of his eyes.

Wracked with guilt and suspected of plotting her death, Talanov spirals downward on a path of self-destruction. He should have been killed, not her. He was the one whose violent past would not leave them alone. Months tick by and Talanov hits rock bottom on the mean streets of Los Angeles, where he meets a hooker named Larisa, who drugs and robs him.

But in the seedy world of human trafficking ruled by the Russian mafia, Larisa made the mistake of stealing the ice man’s wallet. In it was Talanov’s sole possession of value: his wedding photo. Talanov tracks Larisa down to get that photo because it reminds him of everything that should have been but never was, and never would be because an assassin’s bullet had mistakenly killed his wife. Or was it a mistake?

The answer lies in Greco’s Game, a chess match played in 1619 that is famous for its queen sacrifice and checkmate in only eight moves. In an unusual alliance, Talanov and Larisa team up to begin unraveling the mystery of what Talanov’s old KGB chess instructor regarded as the most brilliant example of how to trap and kill an opponent. The question is: who was the target?

Blog Tour Guest Post - Huber's Tattoo by Quentin Smith

Huber's Tattoo
Author: Quentin Smith
Release Date: August 2017
Keywords: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Historical, Nazi, Dystopian, Germany
Categories: Historical Mystery/Thriller
Pages: 468
ISBN: 978-1974412211
Imprint: White Stag

One Liner:
“It is from the midst of this putrid sewer that the greatest river of human industry springs up. Here it is that humanity achieves for itself both perfection and brutalization.”

Book Description:
Imagine if the secretive Nazi ambition to breed a super intelligent race in the 1930s had been realised...

Huber's Tattoo reveals the complicity of the German medical and scientific establishments in the mechanics of engineering the Super Race.

Set in London in 2011, several loosely connected murders are gradually traced back to the secretive and shocking Nazi eugenics program centred around Himmler’s Lebensborn birthing homes. As this bizarre pattern becomes more noticeable, the intellectually brilliant DCI Webber of Scotland Yard discovers, throughout the course of his investigation, that his own links to the Lebensborn program, and the murders themselves, are much closer than he could have ever imagined. A parallel narrative, starting in Germany in 1936, follows the Nazi medical doctors involved in this ingenious secret project to engineer Aryan super intelligence. The two narratives eventually converge to create a thrilling finish.

“It is from the midst of this putrid sewer that the greatest river of human industry springs up. Here it is that humanity achieves for itself both perfection and brutalization.”

Huber’s Tattoo is the extraordinary story of a relatively unknown aspect of Nazi history. Viewed through contemporary characters who follow the clues back to the 1930s, the story suggests the impact such fiendish tampering with medicine and human development could have inflicted on future generations. Inspired by authors such as C.J. Sansom and Patricia Cornwell, Quentin is fascinated by the concept of engineering human intelligence, as well as the evil and misguided ambitions of the Nazi Lebensborn and eugenics programmes of the 1930’s. Huber’s Tattoo will appeal to fans of crime and historical fiction.
