COMING SOON… JC Morrows

I have some exciting news to share!

 

First, I have the distinct pleasure of sharing some exciting information about the first book in JC’s upcoming urban fantasy series…

Book 1 of the Andarii Chronicles

TAKEN

   

From the back cover:

 

This is not a story you want to miss; this book, or any book of this series. It’s a story that spans galaxies, involves multiple peoples, and it will reveal a destiny that no one saw coming.

No prophecy brought her here. No ancient oracle foretold her coming. No ancient tablet spoke about the role she is destined to fill. But life and fate brought her where she needs to be to save more than one planet.

 

While we wait for more information, please add this book to your GOODREADS shelf!

 

 

 

And JC has graciously agreed to share with you some hints about other projects, upcoming series, and works-in-process. . .

 

Also slated to release in 2018 is a story about an alien and the one she is connected to. You may have seen updates during November. JC did not win NaNoWriMo this year, but she did get a good start on LINKED – book 1 of the NEW Across the Void series.

She is also busily working on a time travel story, a dragon series and she is co-authoring a story with her daughter Macy.

Exciting things coming.

 

Thank You!
Blessings!

Escape After E.L.E. | JC Morrows

  


Today I am featuring Escape After E.L.E., the second novel in The Frozen World series, by the amazing JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

FORTY-FIVE YEARS AFTER A ROGUE MOON SMASHED INTO THE WORLD. . . THIRTY YEARS AFTER HUMANITY EMERGED FROM THE CAVES WHERE THEY TOOK REFUGE. . . A GROUP OF TEENS DISCOVER THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY. . .

A FROZEN WORLD. . . A LOST LOVE. . . A DIMINISHING HOPE. . . 

Everything Jude has been taught, tells him that Eve was lost to him when he watched the gates close between them. But he refuses to give up on her–because, if there is anything he knows about the girl he reluctantly fell in love with, it is that she would find a way to survive.

But would she be able to survive long enough. . .

When their search efforts are blocked–even after the relentless storms subside–they begin to realize there is something much more sinister happening in the caves than any of them imagined.

When more friends start disappearing, will they be able to figure out why–in time–or will everyone end up suffering the same fate as Eve. . .

Lost forever to those left behind in the caves. . .

Life After E.L.E. | JC Morrows

  


Today I am reviewing Life After E.L.E., the 1st novel in The Frozen World series, by JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Extinction Level Event (E.L.E.): An event where all species on the planet can become extinct.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Rule#1: Be inside the gates before sunset.

Eve was born inside the caves. She was taught that rule – and many others – before she could walk. It should be the easiest thing in the world for her to remember.

But life is not always simple.

Life does not always go as planned . . .

When a rogue moon was discovered on a collision course with the Earth, we thought we had a solid plan.

We were wrong. And we were lied to.

Now Eve is in a race against time, discovery and danger around every corner – to find a truth that has been hidden for more than ten years.

A truth her father died to protect her from.

 

Life After E.L.E. by JC Morrows . . . Will Eve survive? What will happen to those being hunted? Don’t miss this action-packed story!  – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:
Life After E.L.E. is an amazing story!

Honestly, after watching post-apocalyptic movies like Divergent, Hunger Games, and 2012, I can’t wait to see this series on the big screen!

A rogue moon hits the earth, causing an ice age . . . Morrows does a superb job of creating life in the caves for those who survived. It is especially interesting to read about the many rules they live by. I haven’t decided which would be worse – being hunted by a saber-toothed tiger or locked out of the city by the evil chancellor! I think I’d take my chances with the tiger.

I was delighted to see the progression of Eve’s first love. While it didn’t go nearly as far as the scenes in the above-mentioned series, there are a couple of kisses, but that’s to be expected in real life. Morrows gives the characters a true-to-life relationship, howbeit with an unexpected ending.

I am delighted to share that book two will be released soon! I can’t wait to read the next part of this exciting saga. And yes, I was an early reader, so come back on Wednesday to read my review!

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

A Broken Kingdom | JC Morrows

  



The sequel we’ve all been waiting for…
Today I am reviewing A Broken Kingdom, the 5th–and FINAL–novel in the Order of the MoonStone series, by the awesome JC Morrows.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

A Reluctant Assassin…
Made A Treacherous Decision…
Which led to A Desperate Escape.

Now A Tragic Consequence…
Leads to A Broken Kingdom.

When she fell in love with her target, Kayden realized she could not fulfill her mission.

And, no one could have predicted that her decision to share the truth with Prince Dvarius would lead them to the alter — much less to tragedy…

 

A Broken Kingdom by JC Morrows… will Kayden rule as Queen?

MY THOUGHTS:

Wow! I was NOT expecting so much! So many twists and turns! So many surprises!!!

It really is the perfect sequel to the series! If you’ve been reading the Order of the MoonStone stories, I’m sure you’ll agree with me.

JC Morrows is an amazing author/storyteller. I don’t normally like cliff-hangers. Most likely, not many readers do. But once I had read A Reluctant Assassin, I was hooked. I had to keep reading each sequel–and each sequel ended abruptly, making me squirm until the next story was available.

The last story ended on another cliff-hanger! A heart-wrenching ending. This story begins with Kayden… lost, alone, struggling to live up to Dvarius’ expectations. But the love of her life is gone.

And that’s all I’ll say.

Honestly, I can’t say much about this story without giving away something. It seemed like each chapter brought new surprises! Unexpected twists and turns around each corner!

So while I can say the characters are appealing, colorful, and inventive… with grab-your-attention-and-won’t-let-go action from the beginning to the end, I can’t say much else, except…

READ. THE. BOOKS.

All of them.

Do yourself a favor and get the whole series–five novels and five short stories–and read them in order. It doesn’t matter if you choose paperback or digital copies, just read them.

And hey, while you’re at it, if you enjoy them, please take a minute and write a review on Amazon. A sentence or two will do–even a few thoughtful words is enough. It’s a wonderful way to let the author know you like her books–and it’s a great way to let other readers know that these are books worth reading.

Until next time…

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

A Tragic Consequence | JC Morrows

  

A Tragic Consequence
Today I am reviewing A Tragic Consequence, the 4th novel in the Order of the MoonStone series, by JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

FORCED TO FLEE . . .
WOUNDED . . .
ON THE RUN . . .

Not exactly a safe place for a former assassin and a prince with a price on his head.

In the dark streets of Auralius, Kayden and her prince struggle to find a way to set the country right again. But the Order of the MoonStone has a long reach and a strong grip.

Will the two of them be able to find a way to bring down Kayden’s former employers? Or will Kayden’s unusual charm help them to find an ally where there was none?

.

A Tragic Consequence by JC Morrows… will Kayden and Dvarius survive? What will happen to Drey? Don’t miss this action-packed sequel!  – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I was NOT expecting so much new info!!!

It’s the perfect sequel . . . if you’ve been reading the Order of the MoonStone stories, I’m sure you’ll agree with me. But, after reading this book, I don’t know what could come next —  or if I even want to read the final book in the series.

Oh, who am I kidding? Of course, I’ll read the next book!

I’ll be on pins and needles until it comes out. I mean, what can JC Morrows add? What else could possibly happen?

WHAT!

I should have know when I bought JC’s book and she handed me a package of tisues . . . oh yeah, I should have known!

When Kayden and Dvarius enlist the help of another agent, things get really exciting! Kayden learns something about her past — something unexpected. But far too soon the newlyweds are on their way back to face the Order. What will happen? Will they win — or lose — the battle?

You know I can’t tell you – I truly can’t. This time I’m really glad I can’t tell. Grab a box of tissues and read it for yourself.

Happy Reading! JUST DO IT!

 

God Bless You!

A Desperate Escape | JC Morrows

 


Today I am reviewing A Desperate Escape, the 3rd novel in the Order of the MoonStone series, by JC Morrows.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

A Secret . . . A Confession . . . A Decision . . . that will change the lives of an entire country.

The palace is scrambling to recover from a brutal assault . . . the country is in disarray . . . and the royal security team is on edge like never before.

Kayden entered the palace under a lie . . . a lie that has now been exposed.

And now . . .

Prince Dvarius has to decide what to do with his reluctant assassin.

 

 

A Desperate Escape by JC Morrows… will Kayden make it out alive? Don’t miss this action-packed sequel!  – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

It’s stupendous! It’s everything I’ve been waiting to read in this series… now the action comes alive!

What can I say! Kayden continues to steal the show!

But this time Dvarius gets in on the action, too.

When Kayden tells him she was sent to kill him, what will he do? I wish I could tell you more… about what happens when the palace is attacked from the outside . . . and other operatives are found in the palace… and what happens to Dvarius – and his reluctant assassin . . .

But I can’t – I truly can’t. You’ll have to read it for yourself – and the sooner, the better. The only other thing I can suggest is for you to read the entire series, if you haven’t already done so.

This is a great series, comparable to The Selection series and The Lunar Chronicles!

I read on MuggleNet that it may be the next fanfiction!!!

Don’t miss it…

Happy Reading!

 

JC Morrows’ Reluctant Assassin series may be the newest FANFIC for 2016! Don’t miss it!Tweet this!

 

God Bless You!
