Two Down, Two to (Happily) Go

jinauseProlific author Jina S Bazzar has (as you know by a recent post) finished Shadow Pawn, the thrilling sequel to Shadow Walker.  Originally, planned as trilogy, it appears this project may evolve into a quartet.  All the better—while we like to see our favorite characters win battles and settle into a “happy ending”, it’s also great to have their entertaining/intriguing stories continue a wee bit longer.  😉

The Shadow books are a fascinating, dark series that takes us to a fantastical realm of treacherous otherworld souls with unsavory goals.

In Shadow Walker, we’re introduced to the resilient, indomitable heroine, Melaina (Mel).  Per Jina’s blurb: she lives by one hard rule, and that’s never to mingle with the supernatural community.  Driven by fear of discovery, she remains on the fringes of society, occasionally stealing to provide for her aunt and her brother.  So when the opportunity to work for a big corporation falls in her lap, Melaina can’t believe her luck.  But when life looks too good to be true, it’s because it is.  Instead of a dream job, Melaina finds herself facing a blackmailing assassin, with her magic and thieving skills her only salvation.  Failure would expose her darkest secret, but success would destroy any chance for a normal life.

Shadow Pawn follows Melaina as she fights the aforementioned forces, who now hold her aunt and brother as pawns.  Bradley, a former beau, assists in the quest to find them, a challenging feat given it’s difficult to differentiate between friend and foe.  The second book is chockablock full of action, with nary a moment of calm as the two contend with a sundry of devious sorts who will stop at nothing to complete their quest.

Jina is a writer and blogger, as well as mother and baker, and “chocolate fiend” and “coffee enthusiast”, among other wonderful things.  I love this quote from Jina: There is no boundary I can’t cross, no limit I can’t push; my mind is my passport, my thoughts my mode of transportation.  Kudos to you, my dear.

I became familiar with Jina via the Roxanne Fosch Files trilogy, an urban fantasy series that follows the strong-willed, bewitching Roxanne, a young woman with supernatural abilities who is tracked by government scientists and other supernaturals.  To find out more about this talented (and most charming) author, please visit the following:

Two New

Two of my favorite fellow authors have books coming out soon.  Having had the pleasure of reading both, I can honestly say neither disappoint.  It’s a bit too early to provide reviews, but there’s nothing wrong with plugs.  😉

1seanSean Robins’ The Gray Emperor is Book Seven in The Crimson Deathbringer series.  If you’ve read the sci-fi books, you know they’re chockablock full of action (great intergalactic space battles, fanatical alien species) and humor (danger abounds, so do the drollness and farce).  Jim, the protagonist, and his buddies are back and along for the thrilling ride—the beautiful warrior Xornaa, the prankster “insect” Tarq, the solemn unbeaten General Maada.  . . . Or are they?  Perhaps they’re doppelgangers?

1jinas-profile1Jina S. Bazzar’s Shadow Pawn is a future-set murder mystery with a fantasy component.  It revolves around an intriguing protagonist with an equally intriguing history.  Page one yanks you in, as a good book should.  The storyline, action and descriptions, have you wanting to continue reading.  There’s a dark element, which adds to the thrills/excitement.  And who doesn’t love a resilient headstrong heroine who never backs down?

Simple fact: Sean and Jina are exceptionally talented authors whose stories always entertain.  This blog will feature reviews of The Gray Emperor and Shadow Pawn in the next month or so.  Meanwhile, you can find Sean and Jina on various sites (just do that Googling thing); I heartily recommend you check them out.
