Let me say first off that I enjoyed Lily and Kyle's story, the main characters in the first three books of this series. Watching them both grow and fall even more in love was so much fun and I enjoyed going on the journey.

That being said, getting to read about Abbey and Jason was wonderful. I loved getting to know these characters better and watch them fall in love. And seeing them both interact with Pearl was sweet and fun and touched my heart. It was clear that Alicia really enjoyed writing this story and I'm so glad that she shared it with us.

Each story in this series has been better than the last, showing the beauty and power of love and family. She touches the heart, whether it's showing a couple helping one another face their demons or two people finding family with a girl who needs one. And now I'm excited for Gail and Damon's. I hope you are, too.

Blog Tour: Shades of Avalon by Carol Oates






The Shades Series (book #2)
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Paranormal Romance


Summary

Ben Pryor grew up as an average kid in Camden, Maine, unaware of the supernatural storm brewing in his Celtic blood. However, at nineteen, as the last born in the royal line of the beings that once ruled Atlantis, Ben has eagerly embraced his newfound abilities and birthright.

When Caleb, his sister’s mate, goes missing under suspicious circumstances, the prime suspect is the last remaining member of the overthrown corrupt Guardian Council.

With the discovery that an old acquaintance has been keeping secrets and the future Ben was so sure of shifting before his eyes, the situation becomes more complicated, the ransom for Caleb too high.

In the sequel to Shades of Atlantis, Ben will delve deeper than he ever imagined into the magical old ways of the Guardians, the secrets of Excalibur, and the truth behind the legend of King Arthur.


Excerpt 

“Don’t even think it, caveman,” she warned with a breathy laugh. “You stay right there.”


She laid her mask on the seat cushion, and raised the front of her dress over her ankle. She then perched one foot on the edge of the same seat. Perspiration began to gather at my hairline as she pinched a slip of the gold fabric and lace overlay, drawing it farther up over the creamy golden skin of her tensed calf.


I held my breath when the fabric reached her knee, and she released one hand, batting her eyelashes demurely. I had no idea when Amanda had learned to flirt and tease so expertly, but I wasn’t about to complain…well, maybe just a little. She’d drive me crazy with this newfound ability.


Amanda’s free hand slid over her knee and continued upward, bunching the fabric to reveal a sheathed dagger strapped to the outer side of her thigh. The tip just reached her knee. My eyes widen in astonishment at the decorative hilt, twisting thorny vines intricately engraved in the silver colored metal. The design carried down the dark leather sheath.


“This is the Druid Blade.”
