But while chasing down a shifter-hunting serial killer, she accidentally loses control of her magic in front of witnesses, drawing the attention of the dangerous and enigmatic Chief Mage.

Shades of Gray (Amaranthine Book1)
by Joleene Naylor



When Patrick is murdered, Katelina is left with questions. Jorick, one of his so-called friends, has answers of the darkest kind: Patrick was involved with – and betrayed – a coven of vampires; vampires that may now be after Katelina.

The tale is fantastic, but the proof appears in a flash of fangs that Katelina and Jorick only just escape. Taken to a secret mansion, she discovers horror in its halls and learns the truth about her protector. Blood and destruction follow, and leave scars Katelina may never heal from.

The disturbing opener to the Amaranthine series pulls Katelina into darkness that tastes like fear and smells like blood, a world where night is eternal and vampires don’t sparkle.

Shades of Gray is currently free on Kindle and at other retailers. Grab your copy now: http://www.amazon.com/Shades-Gray-Amaranthine-Book-1-ebook/dp/B002RHP5D6/

Today's Book of the Day is:
YOU ARE NOT ALONE (DEATH-GRIEVING-HEALING)
by Sharnel Williams


My Review: In William's first book (What Do A Mother Do?), she shares the heartbreaking story of her young son's life and death. In this latest book, she extends her knowledge and experience to help others deal with the loss of a loved one. Sharnel explains that death is part of life and she discusses the natural processes of grieving and healing which we must all go through. She tackles the subject matter with compassion and offers excellent advice. This is a very inspirational and helpful book which I would recommend.
