Sneak Peek – Callisto Carvanis

Callisto Carvanis Sneak Peak

Callisto

After weeks of nothing, I’m finally back in the writing cave pumping out word after word. I started this story last year after first writing the character in Dark Indiscretions: A Prequel…I knew I wanted more of her. I just couldn’t let her go. Now she’s finally getting to tell the rest of her story aside from that small glimpse you were shown in A Prequel. There is so much more to Callisto than meets the eyes and I can’t wait to share her with the rest of the world. For now enjoy this extended sneak peek into the life of a Legacy!

From chapter 5…

Callisto took a bite of the meat and potatoes her mother had made and moan. It was so good. Say what you wanted about Reagan Carvanis but the woman could cook her butt off. Callisto hoped to one day be at least half the cook her mother was. She was slowly learning all her mother’s receipes but she doubted she cooked them as good as she did. Practice made perfect and Callisto strived for nothing but perfection since the day she was born. She had no doubts she would master the art of cooking soon as well.
“This is delicious Mother,” Callisto moaned out.
A resounding agreement was heard from her brothers and father. Her mother had seriously out done herself this time. Everything was melting in Callisto’s mouth.
“I can’t wait until you teach me this recipe. It’s one of my favorite meals.”
“You are very welcome Callisto and thank you,” Reagan said. “I’m glad you are enjoying your birthday dinner. If you think that is good, just wait until dessert.”
Callisto’s stomach rumbled in appreciation and she had to convince herself not to stuff food in her mouth faster than she’d be able to chew it. Callisto really wanted to talk about the society but her mother forbade such talk at her dinner table so they were resigned to eat in mostly silence.
“Will there still be a party tomorrow Mother,” Callisto asked to fill in the silence.
“Yes, the wives and I have set everything up. Your grandmother is very excited for it. A double birthday celebration for Christian and you. It was all we could do to keep you two a part from each other today. You’ve never went this long without being around each other.”
“I miss him terribly. I can’t wait to see him tomorrow. I want to hear all about his day since I missed the entire thing,” Callisto pouted.
“You two are awful. What ever will you do once your grown and have children of your own,” David teased.
“Our children will be the best of friends just like we are. Marriage won’t separate us from each other.”
Callisto watched as all her brothers rolled their eyes at her and went back to their dinners. They always teased her about being too attached to Christian. They didn’t know anything. Christian was hers, she just knew it.
“Leave your sister alone boys. It’s nothing wrong with her spending a lot of time with Christian. Although now that his Mooyer training will be starting in the next day or two, you won’t be spending as much time together,” Caden said.
I dropped my fork noisy on my plate.
“What do you mean I won’t get to see him?”
“Girls aren’t allowed in the society, you know that,” Reagan said.
“But why can’t we train together?”
“The training the boys receives is very different from the girls, Cal,” Caden Jr said.
“It’s not fair. I want to train with Christian. Why can’t we train together?”
“Don’t be ridiculous Callisto. Eat your food so we can open the rest of your presents,” Reagan scowled.
“NO! It’s not fair.”
Callisto picked her plate up and threw it down on the ground.

So what are you thoughts? I really hope everyone enjoys the first book in the Dark Indiscretions: Chronicles series. It is a spin-off of the Dark Indiscretions series. So far I only have four plan and Callisto’s is the only that coincides with the Dark Indiscretions timeline by the end of the book…the rest will take place before the events of Dark Indiscretions book one. They are more backstories of characters then anything else. Until next time. Now back to writing.

Tragically Wicked by N.L. Hoffmann

Tragically Wicked

“Imagine being human, then waking the next day to find you’re the Guardian Valkyrie, whose duty is to protect the souls of fallen warriors. One little catch… I have to find them first!”

Fallon Creed’s life has been turned upside down and she must find the missing warrior souls before others with less than honorable intentions can get their hands on them. She not only has to face these new enemies, she also learns that someone close to her is not who she said she was.

With the aid of two powerful brothers, Fallon starts to embrace her role as the Guardian. When her strength as a Valkyrie is tested, she starts to have doubts as to whether she can live up to the job.

Time doesn’t matter to those who are Immortal…..unless you’re the Guardian. If Fallon doesn’t find all the souls in time, it could mean the end of her existence as well as the rest of the world’s.

Although Tragically Wicked has the N.L. humor that we fell in love with in Daughters of Darkness Trilogy, it is still in a league of it’s own. Fallon just wanted to run her tattoo shop with her best friend and leave her troubled past behind her. But it seems several other people have their own plans for Fallon. She doesn’t know who to trust in the new supernatural world she’s been tossed into. With crazy gods and other supernatuarals trying to distract her from her destiny, Fallon takes extreme measures to protect what she now considers her people. Everything and everyone are not what they seem but all Fallon wants to do is complete her mission as Guardian before it comes back to bite her in the ass. Fast-paced, kiss ass females and the men who believe they need protecting will make you laugh out loud. One of my favorite quotes on which I almost spit my drink out:

“Devil worshippers!” I hissed.

Fallon is hilarious and witty but don’t piss her off.

Highly recommended if you enjoy paranormal, humor, and strong female leads.
