TROUBLE RETURNS TO BITTER THORN GROVE • GUEST POST BY JULI D. REVEZZO

[Today, I’m turning my blog over to author Juli D. Revezzo, on the occasion of her newest release. Enjoy! ~ Suzanne]

In the continuation of my Stewards War series, with Stacy going back to her normal life, running her history center, I realized that mundane everyday life wasn’t the end (as it wasn’t in the related series Celtic Stewards Chronicles). There was more to tell, after the battle covered in Keeper of the Grove. Thus, the new novel in the series, entitled Bitter Thorn Tribe was born. What “more” is there? Her history center takes up a lot of her thought and life, running such an establishment involves everything from upkeep of the building, to writing grant proposals, to (our favorite pastime!) research. But Stacy also has a full plate.

Because, Balor. Yes, he’s back too, and he likes to do nothing more than cause trouble for Stacy and Aaron. What’s actually there to make the villain follow the rules, after all? Even in his myths he wouldn’t. Case in point, when he was told to stay away from a magical cauldron full of poison. Well, he didn’t, and that’s how he lost use of one eye—except as a weapon—becoming Balor of the Evil Eye.

And even if he’s not totally able to wield power, every good villain has minions. Balor’s are just a little more reptilian than most.

Don’t let ‘em fool you. Balor’s new minions aren’t as sweet as they look!

What will happen to Stacy and Aaron in Bitter Thorn Tribe? Will these so-and-so’s disrupt Stacy’s wedding? You’ll have to read to find out.

Destined to be a bride, if only the gods will let her…

Stacy Macken tries to acclimate herself to her training under Tuatha dé Danaan druids—as if she doesn’t have enough work in planning her wedding to her beloved guardian and fiancé Aaron.

When Fomorii loyalists violate their treaty and seek revenge for their recent defeat, even Stacy’s druids are at a loss to explain the mayhem that ensues. Can Aaron and his brothers-in-arms stop it before Stacy and her family are caught in the crossfire?

If you’d like to check it out, Bitter Thorn Tribe is available in ebook and paperback at Amazon. The entire series is HERE.

#Free Kindle Download • Something Wicked in L.A.

If you are a fan of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, give Something Wicked in L.A. a read…absolutely free.

An evil plot is afoot to bring about the Apocalypse and Tori is the key. Demons are pouring into Los Angeles and she seems to be the only one who notices. If she can manage to survive past her eighteenth birthday, she hopes to graduate from her performing arts high school. Unfortunately, something wicked this way comes and the only thing standing between her and a blood sacrifice is a mysterious new classmate—a classically trained actor from London who knows more about her than she does herself.

The story begins with the prequel, Apocrypha, which introduces the character Jem the Demon. Jem is dedicated to the diabolical, through and through…but is the demon losing her taste for leading the susceptible into sin? One man thinks so, and he uses her image in his supernatural game. Is Jem destined to be anything more than a beautiful face on a playing card or will she ultimately have a greater role in the real-life battle between good and evil?

Darkly humorous and witty, Something Wicked in L.A. will keep you guessing until the end.
