I shall sit at my computer again to the wee hours tonight and start 'My Blood Approves' series. 'Torn' review to be viewed here on blog shortly. I look forward to more reads from Amanda . Do yourselves a favour read her work.

Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood.





FATE

Fate - the second installment in the My Blood Approves series...


Alice Bonham thinks she's finally found a balance in her life between the supernatural and real life with her brother Milo. Jack - her sorta vampire boyfriend - keeps her at arm's length to keep her safe. As for his brother Peter... she's not sure where he's at, or what he wants with her. Worse still, she's not even sure what she wants with Peter.
When tragedy happens, Alice finds herself struggling with a terrible choice. Her decision has consequences that reach farther than she'd ever imagined...
 
 
FLUTTER
 
Flutter - the third book in the My Blood Approves series...


Being undead doesn't make life any easier for Alice Bonham.


Her younger brother's love life is heating up, while hers is...more complicated. Mae is falling apart, her best friend Jane is addicted to vampire bites, and if Alice doesn't get her bloodlust under control, someone will end up dead.


Alice volunteers for a rescue mission with Ezra. But going up against a pack of rabid vampires might be too much, even for him.
 
 
WISDOM
 
Wisdom - the fourth book in the My Blood Approves series...


For her eighteenth birthday, Alice Bonham takes a vacation to Australia only to have her trip cut short by an unexpected murder.

HOLLOWLAND

"This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door."
Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies. 
 
 
 
HONALEE - Witches of Honalee # 1
 
In the small midwestern town of Honalee, Hazel Panning and her best friend Molly Novak are determined to get through her sophomore year in one piece, despite the vicious cheerleaders and Hazel's ridiculous crush on Landon Hooper.


Life gets more complicated when Hazel realizes that she has a penchant for sorcery, like her aunt. Her plans to stay under the radar take a detour when she and Molly stand up for themselves, and Hazel gets the courage to act on her feelings for Landon.


Hazel discovers that the sleepy town of Honalee isn't so sleepy, and magic doesn't make high school easier.
