Review: Grim Tidings

Taking on death on its own turf….

Annabelle Mulledy survived Kalfu’s attack – one friend saved, another lost in Guinee. But now the vampires are on the rise. Most of them, she can handle without much trouble. But when an ancient, more powerful vampire confronts her – one who is uncomfortably familiar to her – and his apprentice joins her at the Voodoo Academy, she finds she has little choice. Help this vampire arrest and overpower death itself, or risk seeing her sister and parents irrevocably “turned” themselves.

Grim Tidings is the second book in the Gates of Eden: The Voodoo Legacy series. Theophilus Monroe’s Annabelle Mulledy is a badass heroine with a snarky attitude. Monroe draws on the legend and myth of Voodoo lore in a way that neither caricatures the arts as “demonic” nor glosses over the dark side of the Voodoo tradition. With dark magic, dragons, vampires, and some budding light slow-burn romance, Gates of Eden: The Voodoo Legacy series has something for everybody.

Review: Wyrmrider Boxed Set

Four books of mermaids, sea dragons, vampires, and voodoo fill this urban fantasy adventure box set. You mess with this Southern belle…and she’ll ring yours all the way to dinner.

Joni Campbell was raised on faith, family, and chicken fried steak. But when she falls under a dragon’s curse, she has only one option: She must seek her ancestors in the mer-kingdom of Fomoria. But is she the one who needs saving, or do they need her, curse and all, if they hope to save their world?


Wyrmrider Ascending (Book One)

Larger than dragons. Nastier than snakes. Terrifying as hell. The wyrms have escaped the void. They threaten the underwater mer-kingdom of Fomoria and the city of New Orleans. But are the wyrms the biggest threat to emerge from the void? Will Joni be able to tame the wyrms? It may be the only chance she has to take down the voidbringer.

Wyrmrider Vengeance (Book Two)

Zombie sharks! What the…? When someone animates zombie corpses, the newly crowned Fomorian Queen, Joni Campbell, has to find the caplata behind it all. Can she stop the sea-zombie apocalypse before the ocean falls, or worse, the pandemic spreads to the land?

Wyrmrider Justice (Book Three)

Time-traveling ghost-pirates…just when you thought you’d seen it all. These are more than cursed pirates aboard Jack Sparrow’s Black Pearl. They are commanded by a caplata, and they have their sights on more than Fomoria. They want to unmake the world. But how can Joni and the wyrmriders possibly stop them when everything the ghost-pirate fleet encounters gets absorbed into their world-devastating armada?

Wyrmrider Academy (Book Four)

With a new brood of wyrms coming of age, more wyrmriders need to be trained. But as a half-human and an outsider, not all of the Fomorian Wyrmriders accept Joni’s rule. Now, it’s not a threat from without that threatens Fomorian but one from within. Can Joni and the wyrmriders quell the rebellion?

Review: Shift for Brains

Zombie epidemics are bad for business.

And I thought five dollars plus your brain was a reasonable cover charge.

But you know…supply and demand…

And functioning brains are in short supply these days.

When it came to hunting vampires, I was second to none.

Vampires are intelligent. It also means they have predictable patterns. Figure out their habits and I could take care of most vamps and be back in time for breakfast.

They’re also image-conscious.

But zombies are unpredictable. They run on pure instinct.

They couldn’t care less about public relations.

Their numbers are growing by the hour.

Since I’m an elemental, they can’t smell me. It gives me an advantage that human hunters don’t have.

But will it be enough?

If I can’t stop them, it will mean the end of humanity, the end of the world as we know it.

Review: No Shift, Sherlock

As if bloodsuckers weren’t frightening enough…whatever killed these people consumed their souls…leaving their bodies completely unscathed.

The victims had only one thing in common: They were all attacked at my club. But when you mess with my fans, Nicky’s fans…well, you’ll unleash Nyx and soon regret it.

The Grimoire of the Nazarene is still missing. If the Order of the Morning Dawn finds it first, Mina will unleash a legion of angels to wipe out everything she deems unnatural: vampires, witches, me…and good people like me, people in my community.

Is there a connection between these killings and the missing grimoire? I have reason to believe it’s all connected.

With every body that turns up at my club, I suspect that Mina gets a little closer to acquiring the Grimoire of the Nazarene and ending us all.

Review: Bloody Devils

We were the terrors of New Orleans…and humanity’s only hope. We called ourselves the “weird sisters”.

Two vampires and a rematerialized ghost. We thought we’d vanquished Asmodeus. But, he’s back. He found a new host. And, now he wants to work with us? But, after all I lost because of him, I was more inclined to blast his demonic ass back to hell than accept his help. Yes, I embraced my inner-wickedness. I could access infernal power and take down the demons one at a time; if you thought I was heartless before, but there’s a new demon on the scene.

Legion. A demon who claims multiple hosts at once and is replicating himself more quickly than I can take them down. Dozens, potentially hundreds, and eventually thousands of new vampires, all possessed by one devilish mind – all working as one. And, Asmodeus tells us he can help us take him down. The prophecy had said I’d be called “antichrist”, I’d be the bloody devil incarnate. The queen of demons – but these demons won’t bend the knee to me or anyone else. And, I sure as hell can’t trust Asmodeus. He has his own diabolical motives. But, if I don’t accept his help, we’re as good as done. Legion will create and claim more vampire hosts than I can possibly handle, and if he succeeds, not only will humanity be lost, but all of vampire kind will be damned to demonic enslavement.

I’m Mercy, and together we are the weird sisters. We’re badass bitches with something to prove. But, if we’re going to save human kind, and therefore all of vampire kind, we need something else…someone else…and we need to figure it out soon before this demon horde spreads any further.

Review: Bloody Wicked

Taking on a horde of demon possessed vampires? Time to get wicked.

You’d think when a plague that threatens all of vampire kind (not to mention the world) is afoot, alerting the Vampire Council would be the responsible thing to do…

I was too late…and now the already-possessed council is coming after me.

If only I could access the infernal power Edwin brought with him when he bound himself to me in hell…

There is one item that might allow me to tap into that power: a flambeaux once made by the Witch of Endor.

Unfortunately, the infernal object is guarded by Cajun werewolves and the nasty ghost of a voodoo priestess. Not to mention, the possessed council is trying to get the item themselves.

To get there first, to claim the object, I’ll have to be ruthless. I’ll have to embrace my inner darkness. I’ll have to be bloody wicked. Hell, it’s only the fate of the whole world that depends on it.

Review: Bat Shift Crazy

I think I’m going batty….


I told myself I’d never go back.

I’m returning to the Vilokan Asylum of the Magically and Mentally Deranged….

Not to get treated…but perhaps Doctor Cain can help.

The world’s original werewolf…and its first murderer.

If anyone can help me get a handle on an undesirable shape-shifting situation…it’s him.

But there is a coven of bat-shifting vampires with other plans.

Surely their appearance and my…acquisition of this ability…isn’t a coincidence.

If I’ve learned anything hunting vampires, it’s that I can guarantee that they’re up to no good.

And I can’t help but wonder…am I the one hunting them?

Or have the tables turned?

Review: Scared Shiftless

A stiletto heel through a vampire’s heart…

Who ever said you had to sacrifice fabulous for functional? Eventually I’d find her, the one who stole my abilities. Now I was stuck like this…in a human body…a male body…I was scared shiftless. I’m out for more than vengeance. I want my life back. But even if I catch her, even if I kill the vampire who ruined my life…can I even take my shapeshifting abilities back? Or, am I destined to stay like this forever?

Review: Voodoo Academy

Being possessed has its advantages…

Annabelle Mulledy survived a voodoo attack on her family as a child — but it left her possessed by the spirit of a nearly 200-year-old girl. This girl, however, came with strange abilities bestowed upon her in the afterlife. When Kalfu, an evil Loa, discovers Annabelle, he hopes to use her abilities to his advantage — to escape the spiritual realm and take a corporeal form. When Ogoun, the Loa of War, intervenes, he recruits Annabelle to join him as a student at the Voodoo Academy. Will Annabelle master the arts and fend off Kalfu’s spiritual assaults? Or is she ultimately a puppet in a battle between voodoo demigods?

Voodoo Academy is the first book in the Gates of Eden: The Voodoo Legacy series. Theophilus Monroe’s Annabelle Mulledy is a snarky, badass heroine with attitude. Monroe draws on the legend and myth of voodoo lore in a way that neither caricatures the arts as “demonic” nor glosses over the dark side of the voodoo tradition. With dark magic, dragons, vampires, and a slow-burn academy romance, the Gates of Eden: The Voodoo Legacy series has something for everybody.

Review: Bloody Mad

A vampire in an asylum? That is not going to end well. What in bloody hell were they thinking when they locked me up in the Vilokan Asylum for the Magically and Mentally Deranged? They had to be crazy. I mean, it was just a few mutilated bodies in the French Quarter. And it wasn’t like I was in control of myself. It was him – my damned brother, who possessed me, who took over.

Not like the quacks here would ever believe me. I mean, how exactly does a girl go about explaining that the voice inside her head made her do it without coming across as certifiably insane? It was something I contracted when I fed. That’s what gave him the chance to take over. Something demonic, infecting humans and making us vulnerable to possession. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s more going on in this asylum than I thought. Something connected to the Order of the Morning Dawn and a demonic scheme to infect humans, possess vampires, and dominate the world. There’s more at stake here then my sanity. I have to get the hell out of here before it’s too late. I have to stop them.
