EXCERPT:

Perched on the second story walkway, overlooking the crowd piling into the oversized dining hall, Dante Reyes sighed, unsure how many more of these events his brother would force him to organize and attend before the end of the year. While he enjoyed supporting worthy causes, hopping from country to country for the last eight months was wearing him thin. Grateful to be back in one of their homes for an extended period, he watched the couples of Psychics and nulls filling his home, wondering how many of them were native to London. The city had changed so much in the ten years they’d been gone.

The air sizzled with building energy. Hoping the effervescent and happy vibe bouncing through the room soothed him for a few hours, Dante shut his eyes and breathed in to absorb and charge his body using the energy below.

Drake busted through the double doors behind him, breaking his concentration. “There you are.”

“Here I am,” he replied.

“Last one, okay?”

He glanced back and lifted his brow. “Do you mean it, brother?”

“Yes, okay, yes. Such a grumpy immortal you’ve become.”

“We are not immortal.” He grumbled, turned, and stared at the crowd, ignoring the decorative blue Colombina mask floating next to his face. Drake chuckled and Shifted it closer, honing the skill quicker than he had. Dante swiped the mask from the air and fixed it in place, aware the coloring drew attention to his eyes.

“Your best feature, my man. ‘Cuz your attitude is trash.”

“Forgive me for tiring of meaningless interludes with a string of overzealous participants.”

“Casual. Sex. It’s not that hard to say, and you know that’s not why I do this. Just a perk. Maybe if you didn’t talk like the stuffy old goat that you are people would stop calling you one.” He slapped a hand on Dante’s back.

Goodbye #AgentsofSHIELD, #Blindspot, #GoodPlace & More... *sniffle*

Well, this year has sucked huh? One more thing to put on top of all this is some of our favorite shows have and are ending. Luckily, we have a few more episodes of Supernatural coming back before they're gone for good too.

So, let's dive in.

Criminal Minds

While I loved this show for many years, it really wasn't the same for me after Shemar Moore left. I followed him to SWAT, for the better. I did watch the finale of the show and thought they wrapped it up nicely.

Blindspot

I'm still hoping for a Patterson/Rich.com spin-off. I thought the last season was one of the best, overall, and I'm happy with the way I chose to interpret the ending. I won't spoil it for you though if you haven't seen it yet!

Futureman

This show was so bonkers and ranchy and twisted and I enjoyed every second of it. Not sure what that says about me though. LOL

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

So much better than the original. Representation all over the place. Non-binary characters! Gay dads! Plus-sized Princesses!!! The animation is gorgeous. The story is fantastic and has a great ending that turned twitter crazy for a whole week. 

Suits

This one ended a while ago, but it had another decent ending. Most TV shows have been nailing them recently I think. This one did too.

The Good Place

I was not expecting to love this show as much as I did. I watched the finale twice. It was very touching and sweet and made me hope something like that is waiting for all of us.

Agents of Shield

That is how you do a Finale!! Wow. Not only did the writers do a bang-up job of tying all the pieces of the plot together, they gave everyone a happy ending. I'm really sad to see them go, but I love how the "story" continues, even if we're not there to see it. Similar to how I ended the MIND series.

Which, if you haven't read, has been compared to Agents of SHIELD by some readers. I take that as a HUGE compliment. If you want to check it out, book one is only 99c!! http://amzn.to/2lDOiuG

New Release from Tiffany Lafleur #YA #Fantasy


Check out this new release from Tiffany Lafleur!!

Blurb:

Beast Whisperer – that was Lily’s special talent. Useful, but not as flashy as some.Or so she thought. When she was a child, Lily had washed up on the riverbank near Basolt, with no memory of who she was.

Taken in by the couple who found her, she was raised as their own, alongside their new baby. Years later she does something extraordinary. And word spreads of a new Spirit Hopper, someone who can enter into and control not only beasts, but people. Someone who can change the land of Sapeiro. Someone who supposedly died years before.The rumors catch the attention of those who would control her power.

Those who would use Lily for their own purposes, no matter how many lives it costs. They set their plots to capture her in motion.But Lily discovers there is at least one group who might hold the key to her real identity. One group who would protect her. But trust does not come easily for Lily. And her would-be saviors have secrets of their own.

Excerpt:
She could sense the draft horses, glad for the rest the broken wheel provided them, as well as the mice scuttling in the grass. A hawk flew above, gazing on, uninterested in the scene below. The world was lit with the consciousnesses of the beings that surrounded her. She could sense them and feel their joy, fear, and determination to survive. Their emotions were her emotions.

Extending her reach further, Lily sought out the wolf pack. They were not difficult to find: seven large spirits clustered together, a few hundred meters behind the patrol. Their sharp, predatory minds were bright. They were forming a plan, intent on taking advantage of the broken wheel, which left her patrol stranded and weak. But their intentions changed suddenly, from focused planning to aggression – and finally fear.

Lily opened her eyes, suddenly on high alert. What could make the biggest predators in the fields feel such unrestrained fear? Closing her eyes again, she extended her consciousness, probing, searching for the cause of the fear that had overtaken the wolves so quickly. There didn’t seem to be anything that could— 

Lily frowned and concentrated harder. Another consciousness had appeared. It was far away but approaching fast. It was too fast for a forest bear but too slow for a horse. Its mind was intelligent, smarter than the wolves, but she was still not able to identify whether or not it was a threat. 

 Pulling on her mare’s reins, she dashed over to where Cormick stood, on the other side of the cart. The spare wheel had been brought out, waiting for the rest of the patrol to pry the shattered wheel from its spoke. Brandon looked at her quizzically as she sprinted along, though Lily ignored him. 

“Cormick,” she called as she approached him. He glared at her through hooded eyes.

“What, come to gloat about how powerful you are, orphan?” he spat. 

“No, you twit,” she snapped, patience running thin. “Something’s coming our way. Can you sense it?” 
Cormick was about to retort when his expression froze. He snapped his head eastward, towards where Lily had sensed the bright consciousness. 

“What is that?” he asked incredulously, all animosity gone.

Lily had a feeling she knew. Though it shouldn’t be possible, she knew what was lurching their way. There was only one thing on this side of the continent that could be that big, that powerful, and that intelligent.

A berserker. 

She quickly guided her horse over to the rest of her patrol, where Brandon had finally succeeded in taking off the broken wheel. Another two men were crouched near the spoke, trying to ease the new wheel on, while the others were straining at the frame, attempting to lift it high enough to latch on the new wheel.

“Something’s coming,” she blurted out, heart fluttering in her chest. 

Brandon’s expression instantly darkened. 

“What is it, thieves? The wolves? Rasara?” he asked, placing his hand instinctively on the pommel of his sword. 

“No,” she replied. “It’s a berserker.” 

 Brandon’s jaw dropped. “A berserker? How is that even possible? Are you sure?”
