RELEASE DATES & BLURBS


Mel Teshco
Galactic Inferno, book 2 of the Alien Hunger series, is due for release from Ellora's Cave on 13th June 2012!
Here's the blurb:

Ally Grayson believes she’s the last person on Earth after aliens arrived, bringing with them a deadly virus that wiped out mankind.
Somehow surviving the annihilation, she hides in a Sydney house with her dog. She knows she has to leave before the “eyes in the sky” detect her and have her captured, but she never expects an alien to save her and Bonnie from the jaws of a ravenous, feral dog. Never expects to be drawn to Renate, the alien male who seems more human than any man she’s ever known.
She fights an attraction she can’t win, and soon enough she’s in his arms, under his hard, amazing body. Except their unearthly desire might not be enough to keep them together when Renate’s alien comrades close in.

REVIEWS

Imogene Nix
Starline gets a great review and 4 'spider' rating from Close Encounters with the Night Kind.


 "This was a great book!! You follow Duvall's learning about love and having an actual relationship with feelings and his search to eradicate Cricks infiltrators. You also follow Mellissa as she starts completely over again in a foreign world where books don't exist. What a horrid twist!! But she is determined to fit in somewhere and to to stay by Duvall. Together, along with three other really close friends, they strive to uncover and destroy the enemies before the enemies destroy them.I can't wait to read the next book! This has the makings of a really good series!!!"


AND a 5 spider rating for Starfire!

"This book has a little of everything...bad guys, evil/good, conflict, sex, time-travel, new planets, the works!!  I am hoping the next book is going to be about Chowd.  I love Jemma but Chowd is my favorite male character.  A lot of surprises about this guy came out in this book.  I can't wait for the next installment!!  The was an excellent read!!!"

Full review here.









Kylie Griffin
Vengeance Born got a 5 'book' rating from We Fancy Books. Here's a snippet:

"Overall I was totally entertained and I cannot wait to read the next one. I recommend this to everyone who wants to read a Paranormal book but doesn’t know where to start. I suggest you start with this one. It’s a great start of an epic series you won’t get disappointed. Vengeance Born has the right mix of Paranormal and Romance it and that I think you will surely enjoy!"
