Dead Faint Review

Dead Faint by Lizzie T. Leaf  is the 2nd book in the Dead series. I was a bit of a ditz and didn’t realize that until I was a few pages in *head/desk* But, fortunately for me, this book was easy to get into and I while I still want to read the first book, I was not lost in the adventure of Dead Faint. 🙂

Oh! Oh! the first story Dead Awake is FREE October 12th-13th on Amazon. I’m getting it :p


  Queen of Tarts Review of

Dead Faint by                Lizzie T. Leaf

Dead Faint is a fast and furiously fun paranormal romance. The story made me grin and I adored the heroine Billie Joyce, a self confessed hillbilly, with a big heart and very colorful language.  Billie Joyce meets with trouble when she takes a shortcut down a dark alley in New York and asks the angel she sees as she’s dying to help her.  Dovey, her rescuer, saves her by changing her into a vampire and Billie Joyce’s reaction is classic.

“Ya’ll are loonier than a cow after she’s been in the thistle patch. There ain’t no such thing as vampires.” 

She’s plum full of creative phrases that always made me grin. Billie Joyce, or later, BJ, accepts that she’s a vampire now and wants to learn how to handle new life. (I know *snort* my mind immediately went to the gutter on that nickname too, and it’s briefly mentioned that BJ can apply to more than horny thoughts 🙂 ) Anyway, she stays with a Dovey’s friend Daniel, a nearly 1000 year old vampire. Dovey is going through some surprising changes of her own and it just works out better for BJ go through her transition with Daniel.

The Grimm Chronicles Vol. 1 Spotlight + Review + Excerpt + Giveaway!

 The Grimm Chronicles grabbed my attention. I loved the synopsis. I am always intrigued by fairy tale stories… I think it was all the Hans Christian Anderson I read as a child… I hated (actually, still do hate) the original Little Mermaid story <g> So, anyway, fairy tales, happy ever afters, or not… interest me… But I have been burning the candle at both ends with this new website and asked one of my Court of Reviews, La Revenant, to read this book in time for the post. I still plan on reading it. Especially after she told me about the snarky, funtastic dialogue and the magic pen. The pen is mightier than the sword. Ha!

Sooo, Welcome Le Revenant and The Grimm Chronicles. We have the first chapter to wet your appetite for this young adult fantasy and a giveaway too.
