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!

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 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!

A Treacherous Decision | JC Morrows Marathon

 


I am reviewing A Treacherous Decision, the second book in the Order of the MoonStone series by JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Kayden’s mission should have been simple – she was sent to kill the prince . . . not to fall in love with him.

Within the palace walls, Kayden has discovered that things are not as she expected.

Is there more to the royal family, or . . . is there a more sinister depth to Drey’s mission?

Dvarius thought his mind was made up – but will he have the resolve to see it through?

Between attacks from outside the palace – and within, will the Prince live long enough to choose his Queen?

And will Kayden choose to follow her head . . . or her heart, knowing that her decision could very well make her a target as well!

 

A Treacherous Decision… book 2 in the Order of the MoonStone series by JC Morrows – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

JC Morrows is an amazing writer!

I was drawn into this story immediately — Kayden lying on a hospital bed, with Dvarius sitting beside her, not knowing if she would recover. Oh, my goodness!

I felt as if I were in the room with them — and I didn’t stop reading until the end. Actually, I was perched on the edge of my chair — unable to sit still, at least through the first few chapters.

I was thrilled to learn that book two picks up where book one ended — with Kayden getting stabbed!

I read somewhere that it isn’t good form to end a book on a cliffhanger, but I remember all my favorite television shows ending on a cliffhanger; good grief — some of them ended the season that way!

Does anyone else remember watching Dallas, when JR was shot?

I don’t mind a cliffhanger. For me, it adds thrill and intrigue to the story . . . and makes me eager to read the next book in the series. There are lots of secrets in books one and two that haven’t been revealed, but that just makes it more exciting to read.

Will Kayden survive? Will she be the new Princess/Queen? Who else is in the castle, intent upon killing the Prince — or was Kayden the intended victim? I can’t say . . . I really can’t.

If you enjoy YA fantasy, suspense, intrigue, and romance — whatever you do, don’t miss this series!

Happy Reading!

A Reluctant Assassin | JC Morrows Marathon

 


I am reviewing A Reluctant Assassin… the first book in the Order of the MoonStone series by JC Morrows.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

Her mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him…

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife…

But due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him…

 

 

A RELUCTANT ASSASSIN by JC Morrows… don’t miss this exciting new series! – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

W.O.W.

A Reluctant Assassin is oh-so-wonderful…

It’s the typical “Prince Charming will choose his bride at the ball” story – except for a teensy, tiny twist. One of the ladies at the ball was sent to kill… eliminate… assassinate… the Prince. As the author puts it so eloquently —

            “What if Cinderella had been sent to kill the Prince?”

 

Oh. My. Gosh.

I have always loved the Cinderella stories… one of my favorite movies is Ever After – to me it’s the most realistic Cinderella story ever told. And I have books – lots of books – with princes, princesses, kings and queens. But this is the first book I’ve owned with a prince – and an assassin!

Without making the story a thousand pages, JC Morrows gives the reader enough back-story to stay interesting – just a few hints – while creating intriguing, bigger-than-life characters, who keep the reader – well, reading. And she throws in a plot guaranteed to keep anyone on their toes.

JC purposely leaves out information, such as why Kayden is an assassin… and why there seem to be others whose goal is to kill the Prince. If her intent is to make me eager to read the next story in the series – it’s working!

I’m beginning to feel sorry for the Prince. What has he ever done to deserve this? He hasn’t even begun to rule, and from the looks of things, he may never be crowned.

And… that’s enough to share for now. If your interest is piqued, get the book.

JC Morrows is a talented storyteller – you can tell by the success of A Reluctant Assassin. Although she previously released a short story in this series, Morrow’s success has been tremendous! The day after it released, A Reluctant Assassin reached the #1 spot on Amazon (YA action/adventure) – and it stayed the #1 choice (for hot new YA action/adventure releases) since its’ debut almost 30 days ago.

This story was SO MUCH more than I expected — and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

Don’t wait another minute to read this story!

Happy Reading!

MY THOUGHTS:

It’s the story we’ve all been waiting for!

JC Morrows confided that she planned to put this story in book four — but her fans begged her to share it in a short story — and here it is . . .

It released 3 weeks ago… and I’ve already read it 3 times! Yep, 3 times!

The first time was in May when I received an advanced copy…

The second time was the day after I posted an early look at the book on my blog — I just had to read it again. It’s SO GOOD! I’ve been waiting since last September for this story . . . and I was NOT disappointed in the least.

It was PERFECT!

I read it again last weekend, while on vacation, to savor the story, but also because I waiting oh-so-impatiently for the next book to come out. It’s due to be released on October 25th — I can’t believe I have more than 2 months to wait…

If you haven’t read A Covert Alliance . . . you are missing a GREAT story — and a GREAT SERIES!

Don’t wait another minute! Get your copy today! DO NOT miss this special story.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!
