Tigers Promise Blog Tour


Before the curse, there was a promise. 

A prequel to the bestselling Tiger’s Curse series, this much anticipated novella recalls the beginning of Ren and Kishan’s story. Before Kelsey there was a girl, raised by a villain, whose love for a hero changed the course of history.

Trapped under the thumb of her abusive and powerful father Lokesh, Yesubai struggles to keep her own magical abilities secret while evading his dark powers. When Lokesh promises Yesubai to the prince of a neighboring kingdom, she becomes the central pawn in his plot to destroy the ruling family and take power for himself. Yesubai is trapped by her father’s threats and desperate to protect the man she comes to love, but she knows that any decision she makes will have dire consequences. As dark forces gather around her, Yesubai must decide if she’s willing to reveal that somewhere deep within her she has the power to change everything.

REVIEW: Colleen brings us back into the world of our two favorite tigers. But this is the beginning, and it is just heartbreaking. There is plenty of betrayals, first love, friendship and family.

I loved having the back story. Getting to see who the boys were with Yesubai and finally meeting her. Her father is a monster we all know that from the books but to see what he does with his daughter and he is just disgusting. The boys are everything and more in this story that I thought they'd be. It just breaks my heart to have them played against each other, and Yesubai I am on the fence about.

The story pulls you in and makes you fall in love all over again. The laughter and tears are so worth it in this book. And I just can't get enough of these boys and their life before Kelsey. LOVE.

Tremor Blog Tour

In the year 2051, some people have a second pulse…
Like all who have “the pulse,” Faith Daniels and Dylan Gilmore have telekinetic powers—they can move objects with their minds. But there are five “second pulses” in the worldwho have an even greater power: Almost nothing can harm them. They are virtually indestructible.

Both Faith and Dylan have the second pulse. But the other side has second pulses, too, and they’ve been training for a war that has been brewing their entire lives. As Dylan executes a plan to infiltrate enemy grounds, he’ll have to face his only weakness, and a family secret that will threaten his very existence.

Together, Faith and Dylan are the only hope this world has left, but they must go their separate ways in order to accomplish their plan. Will their love survive?

With richly developed characters and heart-pounding action scenes, the second book in Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy continues the electrifying dystopian story of love and revenge.

Wow what a follow up. This book doesn't disappoint, we pick up where we left off. I was so excited about this book and ahhh so in love.

Dylan is a beast in this book. He becomes so much more amazing. He is willing to do whatever it takes to protect he states. He gets a bomb dropped on him that will surprise us all. A twist in the plan but no fear he has Faith to keep him grounded. He is going into enemy territory, and he is going to take them all down. It's so hard to not fidget, to not break down and just take out the twins. They are horrible as is their mother. As the plan becomes more and more clear he is more than convinced he can't let this happen but his weakness is keeping him weak. He will triumph and it will be amazing.

Faith is just as amazing if not more in this book. She is focused, angry and wanting to take down Clara. That's her focus, which is great to a point. She is sick of waiting around taking Meredith's orders/half truths. When Dylan goes undercover she is following, she will stick to orders because she won't risk him. What is she willing to do for him? Anything is the answer. They become so much more in this book. The twists and turns you can't keep up with.

Everything happens in this book so fast, the revelations will make you gasp, the love will make you swoon, and the ending will just push you over the edge wanting the next book immediately. Ah this book had so much going on, and it was all amazing every single page. I can't wait to see what happens next!
