Yesterday was Release Day and I was so busy posting my review of Kresley Cole’s Dark Skye everywhere (here, our Facebook page, Twitter, Pinterest, Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble) that I didn’t get the chance to post the full list of books that came out. Sorry, Peeps!
Obviously I was rather preoccupied by but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Dark Skye wasn’t the only big release for me yesterday. Lara Adrian’s Crave the Night, the latest installment in the Midnight Breed series, also hit the shelves. Being the dedicated fan-girl that I am, I made sure to make the rounds of my local booksellers to make sure that both titles were not only on the shelves, but faced as well. To be honest, my somewhat hick small town isn’t really very good at keeping up with new releases so I had to ask for the titles in more than one store. I consider it to have been a good day’s work!
Here are the paranormal titles that released yesterday:
Linda O. Johnston, Loyal Wolf, Alpha Force, eBook, August 1, 2014
Rhyannon Byrd, Dark Wolf Returning, eBook, August 1, 2014
Lara Adrian, Crave the Night, Midnight Breed Book 12, Hardcover, August 5, 2014
Chloe Neill, Blood Games, Chicagoland Vampires Book 10, Paperback, August 5, 2014

It’s Tuesday, and book lovers everywhere know what that means – It’s Release Day! I’ll be posting a list of this weeks new releases shortly but first I wanted to take a moment to say “Happy Release Day!” to one of my very favourite authors, Kresley Cole.
Kresley’s Dark Skye hits bookstore shelves today and it’s the 15th book in her phenomenal Immortals After Dark series. It also marks the fourth book from this series that I have had the pleasure of reviewing. You can read my reviews of the following series titles by clicking on the links below:
Dark Needs at Night’s Edge
Demon From the Dark
I’ve been reading Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series for a few years now and this is the fourth book in the series that I have reviewed for Paranormal Bites. (I’ve also reviewed the first two books in her Arcana Chronicles series as well.) Why do I keep focusing so much on one author when the paranormal romance/urban fantasy/mystery genres are so rich with authors to choose from? That’s easy – Kresley Cole’s writing is just that good. Period.
The cast of characters in the IAD series is huge and it grows with each book (Dark Skye is the 15th, incidentally). All of the story lines merge and intertwine as the various character connections are revealed throughout the series. In fact multiple story lines occur simultaneously, allowing readers to encounter the individual books out of order without being completely lost, and I find this to be a rather rare occurrence. I’ve encountered far too many series in the past with story lines that are so linear that they must be read in order or the reader is lost, thus compromising reader enjoyment should they happen to pick up a mid-series book first.
Cole weaves her story lines so masterfully that I often imagine her as a giant spider spinning her opus web or as one of the mythological Fates themselves, creating diverse species and situations, and establishing rules just to bend or break them as she sees fit… If fact, if I had to chose one of her own IAD characters to identify Cole with, I’d have to say that judging by her writing, she reminds me a great deal of Nix, the supposedly crazy, “ever knowing” Valkyrie with the maddening habit of popping up unexpectedly, in the least likely places and circumstances, and stirring things up to the distress of her fellow Lorens. Nix is one of the most enduring characters of the series, by the way. I love her kind of Crazy!

Hottest. Cover. Yet.
From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes the long-awaited story of Torin, the most dangerous Lord of the Underworld yet
Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.
She is Keeley Cael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.
Charley Davidson and Reyes Farrow will be hitting bookstores shelves tomorrow, May 20th, in Darynda Jones’ Sixth Grave on the Edge. Darynda has launched an extensive blog tour to celebrate her latest book and Paranormal Bites is thrilled to be participating!
Readers can enter to win a signed copy of Sixth Grave at each stop! Blog links can be found on Darynda’s site.
Paranormal Bites’ official day is Tuesday, May 27th. Throughout the day we will be posting our review of Sixth Grave, as well as an excerpt from the book, and a sneak peek of October’s Seventh Grave and No Body.
We hope you’ll join us!
