Blog Tour Spotlight: The Nine by C.G. Harris

Today I’m bringing attention to the book The Nine by C.G. Harris. I’ll take you through the blurb, about the author, and a few tour excerpts! If you’d like to follow along with the tour, you can find the full tour schedule here.

Premise

Gabe is recruited to join the most dangerous organization the world has never heard about.
As a double agent he has to fight within their ranks to stop them, all with no training, no experience and no support. If he’s caught, they will tear him apart. But that’s not the real twist.

Gabe is dead, he lives in Hell and Judas Iscariot just became his new boss.
Judas assigns Gabe a beautiful new partner with plans to sow a disease that could wipe out the modern world. Without revealing his true identity, he must find a way to deal with insect wielding super agents, firestorms, and worst of all, the nauseating envisage travel to get Topside to save the earth.

If you enjoy the Dresden Files snark and Sandman Slim grit, the THE NINE, book one in the Judas Files urban fantasy series, should be the next book added to your bookshelf.

What readers have to say

If you like a fast-paced urban fantasy with lots of action and peril with kickass characters then I would suggest you pick this up.

I’m a Voracious Reader

Filled with sarcastic and irreverent humor, The Nine is a fascinating re-imagining of hell.

Scintilla.info

The world-building is amazing and so imaginative, it pulls the story together nicely to create this dark terrifying world. It’s hard not to get immersed into the dangerous world of The Nine and not love it!

Blog Tour Spotlight: The Thirteenth Hour by Trudie Skies

Today I’m bringing attention to the book The Thirteenth Hour by Trudie Skies. I’ll take you through the blurb, about the author, and a few tour excerpts! You can follow along with the tour using the schedule here.

Premise

When the saints fail, the sinners step up.

Cruel gods rule the steam-powered city of Chime, demanding worship and tribute from their mortal subjects. Kayl lost her faith in them long ago, and now seeks to protect vulnerable and downtrodden mortals from their gods’ whims. But when Kayl discovers powers that she didn’t know she had—and destroys a mortal’s soul by accident—she becomes Chime’s most wanted.

Quen’s job was to pursue sinners, until the visions started. Haunted by foreboding images of his beloved city’s destruction, Quen hunts soul-sucking creatures made of aether who prey on its citizens—and Kayl is his number one target.

To ensure Chime’s future, Kayl and Quen must discover the truth of Kayl’s divine abilities before the gods take matters into their own hands.

For a city that bows to cruel gods, it’ll take godless heathens to save it.

The Thirteenth Hour is the first book in The Cruel Gods series—a gaslamp fantasy featuring magical portals, gothic cosmic deities, quaint Britishisms, and steampunk vibes. This is an adult book containing strong language and mature themes that some readers may find disturbing. For a full list of content warnings, visit Trudie Skies’s website

What readers have to say

Trudie Skies has created an intricate world. It may appear complex but the way Trudie has introduced the world to the reader is wonderful and fits seamlessly into the novel.

Hayley’s Book Room

It probably won’t surprise you that I’m giving The Thirteenth Hour five stars. No, wait six stars. Seven stars? All the stars! Trudie is getting them all.

Narratess

The Thirteenth Hour is a fabulously original character-driven fantasy, with an intriguing plot and wonderfully unique world-building. I recommend it to any fans of fantasy with a gaslamp/steampunk feel. I am thoroughly looking forward to revisiting these characters in the next episode in this series!

Sue’s Musing

The Thirteenth Hour is one of many books that remind you to appreciate our self-publishing friends. It is an admirable addition to self-pub fantasy and a fantastic addition to the steampunk sub-genre (which definitely needs the love). Skies definitely set up the foundations for a universe vast and complex enough to span multiple series.

Geek Declassified

When I was not reading The Thirteenth Hour by Trudie Skies, I was daydreaming about it and for a little while, putting together a playlist. Friends, you can call me ‘obsessed’.

Premise

When materials engineer Zoey Butler lands her dream job at Future State Energy, she believes her research in renewable energy will make headlines. Unfortunately for her, she’s right. Zoey is working on her latest experiment when FBI Special Agent Alexis Thompson and her K-9 partner, Waffle, raid Future State and arrest the head of the development for fraud. Zoey helps the FBI find answers in the aftermath, but she soon finds herself jobless and unemployable. Desperate and out of options, she reaches out to Alexis, the one person who knows Zoey was duped like everyone else.

Liam Graham is an FBI special agent and instructor at Riverbend K-9 Academy. When Alexis brings in a new recruit with an unusual background, Liam pairs her up with Tasha, a dog in need of a handler to stay in their competitive program. Zoey is thrilled to put her past behind her and give the mischievous rescue dog her own second chance. However, shortly after she arrives, the FBI realizes the Future State case is far from closed. And Zoey may be the key to solving it.

Zoey offers to go back to Future State to help the FBI end things once and for all. Only this time, she’ll have Liam and Tasha for backup. But, the problems at Future State are more explosive than any of them suspect.

Review (No Spoilers)

Welcome back to my blog everyone! Sorry that my posts kind of died at the end of last year/beginning of this year. I visited my partner’s family for Christmas and it seems that on one of our connecting flights we caught Omicron and have been isolating basically since January 1st.

Today’s post is a review of the fantastic cozy mystery A Nose for Mischief. I am a fan of cozy mysteries because I find that they aren’t as mentally taxing as books that are classified as standard mysteries. When I open a cozy mystery, I usually prepare myself for it to be fairly simple and straightforward, both in plot and writing-style . I am excited to say that A Nose for Mischief delivered more than I could have ever imagined. The writing and plot were both phenomenally sophisticated and detailed, despite incorporating the well-known tropes of cozies such as a non-law enforcement protagonist, a punny title, and an adorable fluffy sidekick.

Throughout the novel, you follow the main character, Zoey, as she struggles to find her place in life after being collateral damage in an FBI raid of her old company. Struggling with new unemployment, Zoey wiggles her way into a new position as a K-9 unit FBI intern. Once the FBI gets word that her old job may be up to its old tricks, Zoey goes back, undercover, to sniff out any secrets that the company may be hiding.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading this quick and fun novel. It is the first in a new series and you can bet your bottom that I will be continuing! Zoey and Liam were not only very likable as main characters, but they were also incredibly sensible. After reading so many novels where main (and side) characters love to make bad decisions for apparently no good reason, it was really nice to see people who were clearly well thought out and cleverly executed.
