Since her mother vanished nine years ago, Anamae and her father have shared a quiet life. But when Anamae discovers a brooch identical to her mother's favorite pendant, she unknowingly invites a slew of trouble into their world. When the brooch and the pendant are worn together they're no longer pretty pieces of jewelry -- they're part of a highly developed technology capable of cloaking the human form. Triggering the jewelry's power attracts the attention of a secret society determined to confiscate the device -- and silence everyone who is aware of its existence. Anamae knows too much, and now she's Enemy Number One.

She's forced to leave her father behind when she's taken in by a group determined to keep her safe. Here Anamae searches for answers about this hidden world. With her father kidnapped and her own life on the line, Anamae must decide if saving her dad is worth risking her new friends’ lives. No matter what she does, somebody is going to get hurt.

#ThorLove Blog Hop - Happy Release Day Amalia Dillin!

Happy release day to Fate Forgotten, by the lovely Amalia Dillin! Fate Forgotten is the latest installment of Amalia's Forged by Fate series, a highly imaginative saga involving Adam, Eve, and a certain Norse god we all know and love, Thor! To celebrate her new release, Amalia asked a few of her mythology-geek -- I mean, Thor loving -- friends to spread a little #ThorLove.  

My own #ThorLove knows no bounds. He's stoic. Arrogant. Loyal. An out-of-the-box problem solver. Who else would dress up as a bride to save his beloved Mjolnir from the clutches of an evil jotun? Or convince his good buddy Loki to be the ultimate wingman dressed as a bridesmaid? (This is so my favorite Thor story. To read the whole thing, click HERE.) Who else could rock long(ish) hair and a cape quite like Chris Hemsworth? Or strike such intense fear into the heart of the Mischief God, he'd strike a deal with dwarves to replace Sif's lovely locks with actual gold? 

Thor's the man, plain and simple. I'm ridiculously excited to see what he's going to get up to in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World. And I can't wait to see Svartalfheim (the realm of the dark elves)! Who's with me?

I know Amalia is -- happy book birthday, Fate Forgotten! You can find her brand-spankin' new release on AMAZON or BARNES & NOBLE.

Did we mention there are prizes?

Release Day - Adorned by Georgeann Swiger

Happy release day to Georgeann Swiger and Adorned!

When seventeen-year-old Anya finds out she’s actually an angel being trained to protect humanity, she

discovers that becoming an angel has nothing to do with wings and haloes. For Anya, becoming an

angel has to do with death—her death.

Micah, the angelic soldier ordered to protect her until she transitions from human to angel, promises

her death will be a glorious experience as long as she follows his rules. But getting Anya through this

life and to the next isn’t as simple as Micah expects. His job becomes even more difficult after he

unwittingly performs a miracle that exposes Anya’s hidden angelic light.

With her secret out, Hell’s legions begin targeting her. Unfortunately, Hell’s minions are the least of

Micah’s worries. He’s more concerned about the forbidden human emotions he’s developed toward

Anya. Even more troubling, is she seems to love him too. And giving in to those feelings, could mean

dire consequences for them both.

Buy Adorned on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
