Fists are pumping, bodies gyrating, sweat dripping—booming music drowns out all other noise in the dark club. Leisha, dressed in skimpy, revealing clothes, eyes her victim. As soon as he sets eyes on her, she knows he’s hers. He becomes excited as despicable thoughts of murder run through his mind, all readable by Leisha’s abnormal senses. After a bit of small talk, they are soon both out the door, Leisha pushed against the wall. The man pulls out a knife, ready to cut up this beautiful woman. Leisha smiles as she deflects the knife and bites into his neck, sucking every ounce of life from this abominable man.
It wasn’t always this way.
Leisha was once a loving mother with an ideal family. Though this was over two thousand years ago, Leisha still holds that time dear to her heart. But for now, she must focus on trying to escape the eternal and bloody war between her kind—the Vampires—and the Immortals, an undying
race sworn to destroy her people. Soon, Leisha finds herself captured by the government only to be saved by a young and mysterious human girl. What entails is the beginning of a long and torturous journey as Leisha and her newfound friend run for their lives while searching for the one thing that can end it all—the prophecy child.
My Take On This Book
From the first paragraph of this book, Leisha drew me into her world. She has been on the run on her own for two thousand years. She finds herself captured by the government so they can experiment on her kind, Vampires.
Samantha, a young human girl with a mysterious gift of her own, soon saves Leisha. Samantha is not as afraid as she thought she would be since she had seen what was about to take place in her vision.
Though Leisha does not know how the young girl knew, she was there nor how to find Leisha and set her free, all she knows is that they need to escape and they very surly do, into a journey that will astound you.
I cannot really say as much as I would love to about the book, as I do not want to give all the awesome parts of the book away. I do know once you pick this book up you will not want to put it down.
This is the first adult paranormal book I have read and reviewed, and I can say it will not be the last. Leisha’s story has definitely gotten my attention, and I cannot wait to read more.
I want to thank Adrienne Monson and Kirk Cunningham from Jolly Fish Press, LLC for the opportunity to read and review this book. It was an honor to read such awesome writing.
DISSENSION will be available where books and ebooks are sold February 23, 2013.
About The Author
I have always had a voracious appetite for reading, which I think I inherited from my dad. I love all different kinds of fiction and will sometimes stay up all night to finish a well written book. When I was eleven, I had an obsession with vampires and immersed myself in every kind of vampire literature. That may be why the first novel I have written is about vampires. Of course, everyone has their own version of what kinds of powers vampires have and where they come from. I am no different.
The genre I write is Paranormal. My first novel is book one of a vampire trilogy. I have finished Dissension and it will come out in Spring of 2013. In the meantime, I am finishing and polishing the rest of the trilogy. Once finished with that project, I’ll be working on a demon novel called See All Evil.
I live in Utah with my husband and two kids, whom I love with all my heart. I hope you enjoy my site and the excerpts I have written, and look forward to your comments!
