Katrina's Month 3 Mini Challange

Okay so here is my post for the month 3 mini challenge.  It's  completely silly, but it was fun. :D

Red Riding Hood made it Halway to the Grave.  She didn't want to Linger on her way to Hex Hall.  The wind blew, and she suppressed a Shiver.  "This is Supernaturally creepy," she thought.

The Blue Bloods Saga ebook Sampler

This sampler will give you a refresher of the previous 6 books.  This way you are able to go into Gates of Paradise without trying to remember what happened.  Or, you can join the Read-A-Long. ;)  You also get a first look at Wolf Pact.  The sampler has the first chapter!!!! 

As far as I can tell, this is only available on Kindle.  If you don't own a kindle, you can download the app on your phone, tablet or computer in order to read it. 

This is the link, and I believe it is free. :D

Katrina's Review of Revelations

Published: October 31, 2008

Buy: Amazon, B&N

Source: Own

Goodreads Blurb: Schuyler Van Alen's blood legacy has just been called into question: is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.

When an ancient place of power is threatened in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high, the battle is bloody; and through it all Schuyler is torn between duty and passion, love and freedom.

Romance, glamour, and vampire lore collide in the highly anticipated third book in best-selling author Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series.

Wow, I forgot a lot of major things that went down in this book.  Revelations ends up being the turning point of the series. 

Many of the characters have to make decisions that change things forever.  Revelations is  bit more emotional than the previous books.  The characters face tougher decisions with major consequences.  Schuyler was not my favorite character in this book.  She was selfish, and only thought of herself.  She never really thought through her actions and the hurt it could cause other people.  

There's some major drama in this book also. Bliss's family has secrets. Charles Force pretty much loses his will to do anything. And Schuyler is put into a position she knew would always come.  If the first two books didn't have you hooked, this one definitely will.  I put the book down thinking, "What the hell?"

Month 3: Revelations Mini Challenge

We interrupt the Revelations mini challenge to bring you a...

                      WOLF PACT mini challenge.

How could we not do a Wolf Pact challenge with its release being this month. :) Even though there has been much ranting (on my part) and confusion (with both of us) we have decided to go ahead with the Wolf Pact challenge.

What you will be winning? Well it is your choice. Since US only has e-copies available only (sigh, I know!)  You can have either the e-copy or we can order a UK paperback edition from TBD. The only problem with that might be major waiting. So we leave that up to you.

How can you win Wolf Pact? I am so glad you asked.

This challenge is simple, but you have to put on your thinking caps. Here are the details.
  • Part One- Go through your books...find ones that have wolves or werewolves or hellhounds as main characters or part of the story. Use the titles to make a story of your own. (if there is a book you don't have, but want to use it for your story, that is fine. Just try to use books you have because it is used in part two.) The story only has to be 4-6 sentences long. Just be creative!
Example: Once in a Full Moon a girl is Stolen. She is  taken to the Sisters Red forest. There she is a Bitten and cursed to become the predator or the Prey. **cheesy, I know, but you get what we mean.
  • Part Two- Take a picture of the stack of books showing the titles and add it in with your story. Also if the book is on your ereader. Just add that to the pile you take the picture of. If you have a interesting way of wanting to add in your ebooks, go ahead!!

That is it. Have fun, Be Creative and don't forget to link your stories down below. Katrina and I are excited to read them and see what y'all come up with. Contest Ends: September 30th. Winner will be announced and emailed. You will have 48 hours to respond before a new person will be picked.
