Venators: Through the Arch Volume 1 by Devri Walls

Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.
Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.
By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.
Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council.

Attention readers! We have a new favorite on the block! Venators is a fun, modern-day fantasy readers of all ages can enjoy.  The plot is unique,  the characters are realistic, and the book is a fun read. The world building is highly imaginative and I received a fun, "goes bump in the night" vibe as soon as I jumped into it. The author did an amazing job capturing the male protagonist's essence when dealing with the aftermath of dark trauma. So many elements toward the end of the story threw me for a loop. Not knowing what to expect is refreshing in the Indie Author Realm. I'm ready for more and cannot wait to introduce this new series to my children.

Cuts Like An Angel by Lucian Bane & Mason Sabre

He never called the helplines. The one time he did, it was to say goodbye ... to anybody, before leaving the world. Rosie … that was her name. She’d given it when she wasn’t supposed to. She said things that made him burn to live.
And he would. He’d find a way to hide his darkness so that he could dance with her, just a single dance, in the liquid sunshine of her laugh.

Cuts Like An Angel is a beautiful, chaotic mess. It will hook you from the first page and leave you questioning your own sanity. The prose is morbidly dark and twisted, and you can expect back stories of the protagonists to be nothing short of soul shattering. I was teetering on an edge of an intense obsession to somehow not justify some of William's twisted decisions. Everything about the book that is thought provoking also creates a whirlwind of emotions so thick that I often couldn't figure out whether to listen to my head or heart on this one. I kept wondering if I'd been in those same situations, and had easy access to information that could keep me tethered to this life, would I really do it differently? There are just no words for how profound this book turned out to be. If there were more authors with this talent I'd say goodbye to reality forever.  It's obviously a 5 star read and I cannot read the second installment soon enough.

Blood Magic: Soul Tracker by T.G. Ayer Review Tour

In the DarkWorld the things that go bump in the night are most likely true. And the problem is
they are probably not sticking to bumping around in the night. They are everywhere. Your work
colleagues, your teachers, even your friends. They've been living that way for a long time. And
you haven’t noticed because they don’t want you to.
You’re much better off not asking any questions.
Mel Morgan is a Master Teleporter. She can move through the Veil into the otherworldly planes.
A handy skill when looking for missing people. It’s a lonely job, but with her gargoyle partner
she’s never minded lonely.
Until a certain super-hot Djinn walks into her life. He needs her help to find someone he loves.
And Mel can never say no to someone in need. But the road to helping Saleem is fraught with
secrets better left uncovered.
Can Mel and Saleem dodge demons and sorcerers long enough to save the ones they love?

 If you're looking for a a good urban fantasy loaded with fun magical abilities attached to three-dimensional characters then look no further. It has a fast paced, action-packed storyline bound to leave readers reeling for the next scene. Saleem is delicious, and I wouldn't mind seeing a lot more of him in future stories.  The ending was definitely a nice touch.  Blood magic is an easy 5 stars!
