(Gods and Monsters #3)
Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected Publication September 17th 3013
The Wicked Within has no blurb yet, so let me give you a glimpse of what the first two books were all about. Simply put, this series has a kick-*ss heroine, a (sometimes) swoony love interest, and a very menacing villain. Exactly what I’m looking for in action-packed books!
Darkness Becomes Her (Gods & Monsters #1)
Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is. Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
A Beautiful Evil (Gods & Monsters #2)
Myth and mayhem inhabit a richly reimagined New Orleans in this sequel to Darkness Becomes Her.After the epic graveyard battle at the end of Darkness Becomes Her, Ari and her friends know what they’re up against: Ari is facing the Medusa curse and is haunted by the image of what she will become. To make matters worse, the heinous goddess Athena has kidnapped young Violet and is threatening to destroy Ari.
Ari, along with the superhot Sebastian, is doing everything she can to learn more about Athena and to get Violet back. But the battle of good and evil is bigger than she realizes, and she’s about to be pulled into a world more horrific than she could ever imagine….
Woot! I cannot wait for The Wicked Within to be released!!! I expect that it will be as fast-paced and action-packed as the first two. Yeeees!
