There are times when I just flat-out love this job.
Well, there are a number of reasons but one of them comes with meeting all the cool authors I’ve gotten to meet. Another perk? *G* Getting to know them well enough to beg for early reads.
Like…oh, say… this one…the first in a new series by author Joss Ware. (hmmmm…although now I wonder if I’m supposed to say anything about the goofy new regulations for bloggers and books and whatever put out by the FTC…should I mention this was an e-arc given to me with no strings attached, etc, etc, etc…sigh)
Coming in early 2010: the first three books in the Awakening Heroes series.
Thrust into a post-apocalyptic world, these remarkable men meet up, spar and partner with the just-as-remarkable women who will win their hearts as they fight an immortal enemy determined to crush all humanity.
Joss was kind enough to let me read it early, and it is excellent. I can’t wait for the next ones.
Blurb (for series):
EVERYTHING THEY KNEW IS GONE .
From the remnants of devastation, five men emerge with extraordinary new powers.
They are humankind’s last hope…but they cannot survive this dark, ravaged world alone.
Blurb for first book:
BEYOND THE NIGHT
A man with no future…
When Dr. Elliott Drake wakes from a mysterious fifty-year sleep, the world as he knew it is gone. Cities are now desolate, and civilization is controlled by deadly immortals. Stranger still is Elliott’s extraordinary new “gift” – he has the power to heal, but it comes with fatal consequences.
A woman with a past
Jade barely escaped the immortals and is now hell-bent on revenge. She trusts no one… until Elliott. His piercing gaze and tempting touch shatter her defenses, but the handsome doctor seems to have dangerous secrets of his own. Is it safe to trust him with her heart?
If they are to survive in this dark new world, Jade and Elliott must work together to fight the forces that takes them beyond danger.
Beyond the night.
