“A Book Set On A Different Continent”
Karen Marie Moning

Dani “Mega” O’Malley is a 14 year old Sidhe-seer…she can see through the glamour the Fae use to walk the streets of our world. She can “freeze-frame” or “Fast-Mo” through areas at incredible speeds. She’s hated by her best friend; wanted by mysterious club owner, Ryodan; and hunted by the half Druid/Unseelie Prince, Christian. Iced picks up shortly after the events in Shadowfever and is a spin off of the dark, urban fantasy “Fever Series” by Karen Marie Moning. I really struggled with this book at first. Dani is an annoying little shit. She’s foul mouthed, disrespectful, stubborn, over-emotional, and about as loveable as the Plague. She *IS* growing toward the end of the book, but I’m still having a hard time warming up to her. She wasn’t my favorite…

Book Description
Publication Date: November 11, 2014
There is no such thing as a chance meeting.

There’s no room in Avery Nicolis’s life for an obsession, yet why else does he stalk Emeline Gamble. Lurking in the shadows, he hungers for a woman he can’t have. Between the secrets he guards and anarchy roiling in his soul, his only solace are his glimpses of Emeline. He will resist her, protect her from himself, and deny his desire to claim her heart.
Emeline Gamble was a Watcher for the Order—a secret society of women charged with monitoring the offspring of the gods. For months, she observed Avery Nicolis, an elite mercenary, Descendant of Ra, and enemy of the Order. Never knowing he had her in his crosshairs.
Trapped in a lie, Emeline is forced to accept Avery as her bodyguard. Compelled to spend time with him, she learns to care for his tortured soul and see the hero lurking beneath the assassin’s façade.
But every word out of her mouth is a lie. Every action a betrayal. Because to save her family she is forced to accept a new assignment, deliver Avery Nicolis to the Goddess of Chaos, alive…
And do not fall in love with him.

Eternity (Descendants of Ra: Book 1)
Everlasting (Descendants of Ra: Book 2)
Evermore (Descendants of Ra: Book 3)



EVERMORE has a well-developed story line and characters. It has action, tension, and red-hot sex. When the ORDER comes back into her life, things couldn’t get more complicated. She left the ORDER when her Grandfather needed her and she now takes care of him on a daily basis. Now they want her to bring Avery Nicolis to the GODDESS OF CHAOS. Easy right? Wrong, it will be one of the hardest things she will have to do.  I have never read anything else from this Author, but I will definitely will go back and read the other books in this series. The dialogue and the description of the settings are very well done. I urge you to read this book and the others in this series. I know I will. I give it 4/ 5 stars.

Writing Tip: 7 Ways to Overcome Writer’s Block

Writing Tip: 7 Ways to Overcome Writer’s Block

1.) Step away from whatever you’re writing and do anything that’s creative. Paint pictures, write poetry, design images in Photoshop, make a scrapbook or collage, or if you’re masculine, build something in the garage. Work on another creative project for a few hours or days and then go back to writing. When I’m stuck, I paint paintings or work on my website or blog. Jumping to other projects really activates my creativity. The key is to keep exercising the creative part of your brain and eventually you’ll tap back into the flow of writing.

2). Do freewriting. Spend 15 minutes or more a day writing whatever comes off the top of your head. Ignore punctuation. Just write freely. Allow it to be totally random. You might change subjects many times. You might mix fiction with journaling or vent frustrations. The process…
