Quanta by Lola Dodge Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

Quanta-Front-Cover-e1411256494519

The Blurb:

Just because Quanta can see the future doesn’t mean she can change it. She’s spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she’s finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.

The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in a perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.

Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They’ll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she’s seen how their love plays out?

 

My Review:

I LOVED this book and fully expect to see it one day in film! Quanta is the second book in The Shadow Ravens series– a series written by three different authors and set in a futuristic world run by a genetically modified caste system.  Much like the Hunger Games, it opens with a palpable tension that never lets up and keeps you on edge until the very end.

I just couldn’t put this book down.

Reminiscent of the movie Edge of Tomorrow (which was originally the Japanese military sci/fi novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka,) it amps up the time travel genre and keeps the reader gasping, “No Way!”

The love story meshes perfectly with the action. Lola Dodge knows how to marry romance and action so seamlessly that the reader isn’t jarred between the two, but keeps turning pages to see how the two characters (Quanta and Altair) can possibly survive long enough to begin their love story–the love story that we’ve been watching through Quanta’s time visions from the moment we first see Altair.

Overall, exciting read and well written. Though it is the second book in the series, it could easily be stand alone.

The Shadow Ravens Series, Cipher by Aileen Erin

cropped-download.png

Guest Post by author Lindsey S. Frantz

In expectation of the release of Quanta by Lola Dodge, the second book in The Shadow Raven’s series, author Lindsey S. Frantz has given a fabulous review of the the first book in the series, Cipher by Aileen Erin.

The Blurb:

Alone and on the run, Cipher doesn’t talk about her secrets, her powers, o23249649 (1)r the people chasing her. She can’t let anyone get that close. At least, she shouldn’t.

Knight is working undercover for the bad guys. He’s done things that have marked his soul, but it’ll all be worth it if he can save the girl who means everything to him—the girl who saved his life by putting herself in danger. It’s been twelve years, but Knight knows she’s still alive, and he’s made it his mission to find her and keep her safe.

When Knight finally catches up to Cipher, electricity sparks. He’s crazy gorgeous, stupid brilliant, and begging to lift the burden from Cipher’s shoulders. Can she really trust him with her secrets? With her life?

She doesn’t have long to decide, because Knight isn’t the only who’s been looking for her. Now Cipher can’t run without leaving him behind. What good is being together if they’re both dead?

To save Knight, Cipher will finally stop running…one way or another.

Lindsey’s Review:

Computer hackers, the power to manipulate electricity, and different genetic modifications that make people faster, stronger, smarter, and sometimes immortal. Cipher by Aileen Erin has all of these things and more. Not to mention a love story that catches you and carries you along like you’re riding a raft through the rapids.

Ciper—a Red Helix, one of the children born with an ability that gets them killed at birth—is the kind of female character that is strong, independent, and doesn’t need any man. To take it a step further, when she’s given the opportunity to fall for a man, she fights it with everything in her to maintain her independence, even though she’s drawn to him in a way she can’t explain.

Knight—a double Helix, both Green and Black—is the kind of male character that makes you want to fall in love with him and hold on tight. Strong, modified for both strength (black helix) and intelligence/technology (green helix), and totally dedicated to finding the little girl who saved him as a child by electrocuting his abusive father with a touch of her finger.

Following Cipher and Knight across the country as they learn to trust each other is a whirlwind of emotion, sexual tension, and mystery. This book is a very quick read—mostly because you can’t put it down—and will leave you wanting so much more from this world.

Cipher is part of a book series, written by three different authors, set in this world filled with people with different genetic mods. The second book, Quanta, is set to release on October 13th. It will follow a different Red Helix, and after reading book one, I cannot wait for book two to be out.

Love is Darkness- Valerie Dearborn Series by Caroline Hanson

 

The blurb: Valerie Dearborn download (1)wants a cotton candy life filled with light sweetness, but it’s more like a puffer fish: pointy, unusual, and—if not prepared exactly right—deadly.

In London for graduate school, Val knows she’s finally free. Her father and ex-almost-boyfriend are back in California and she’s out of the Vampire hunting biz for good. Or is she?

She draws the attention of Lucas, a 1600 year old Vampire, and King to his kind. He’s also wicked hot. As golden as Lucifer, and just as tempting, he makes Valerie an offer she can’t refuse— help him find out if the Others (Empaths, Fey and Werewolves) still exist or he’ll stop protecting those she loves.

Lucas tells her that Empaths were a Vampire’s biggest weakness before going extinct hundreds of years ago. While the Fey or a Werewolf might kill a Vampire, an Empath could enslave them, seducing or harming with emotions at will. The one detail he leaves out? Valerie is an Empath.

And after 1600 years of an emotionless existence, Lucas wants Valerie like a recovering alcoholic wants a wine cooler.

Can she keep those she loves alive, stop Lucas from munching on her, survive a fanged revolution and still find a way to have that boring, normal life she’s always wanted? Probably not, but boy is she gonna try!

This is a full length novel and contains adult content.

Belletristic Malady says:

If you are looking for a steamy New Adult paranormal fantasy, this is the book for you. Valerie Dearborn is born to a family of vampire hunters, but guess what? She wants nothing to do with the life! Complete with a love triangle, Love is Darkness leaves the reader torn. Should she end up with the broody, sexy vampire hunter that she’s loved all her life or the 1600 year old vampire king who she has inspired to feel again after centuries of apathetic nothingness. Hanson is an artistic when it comes to sexual tension. She raises the stakes throughout the book, and in the final scene leaves us with an Oh crap moment that has us racing back online to purchase the next book in the series!  I

Are you one to book binge? Caroline Hanson has completed this series so you can read all three!
