I’m pleased to announce that the third title in The Immortals series, The Broken Angel, is out. Slightly later than my planned release date, but finally available wherever books are sold. I worked on this story throughout the summer and I had to rewrite the whole ending because I felt there was something missing. But the comments from my ARC’s reviewers so far are overwhelmingly positive, so I guess that waiting to release was the right call.
Just a few snippets from the reviews left so far on Goodreads for Samuel’s story:
“Monica La Porta you deserve a standing ovation for The Broken Angel. Your writing is brilliant and soul consuming…” S.I.
“Amazing! I really admire Monica La Porta for creating books such as this one. It is a Paranormal but she managed to include sensitive topics that were very common in our society such as marital abuse, rape and abuse of power.” R.
“I recommend it for everyone especially those of you that love paranormal. As for my rating of this outstanding book, I give it a rating of 25 out of 5 stars.” D.S.
“In my review of The Immortal Greek, I asked myself if Monica La Porta could pull the rabbit out of the hat again. I was convinced she would….She has not let me down…” L.C.
“Utterly fantastic story! I absolutely loved Samuel’s and Martina’s story. I couldn’t put this book down. It held me captivated from page one.” A.M.
And this is one of the promo images I created for The Broken Angel’s release.
“As Director of the Supernatural Enforcement Bureau, powerful Vampire Ronan, thought he had seen it all…until he discovers that Dragons actually exist. Can he help the Dragon being hunted on his patch? He certainly has the means at his disposal…if they can find it first…before the dark magic-wielding Witches and their Vampire cohorts.
After seeing the magnificent beast with his own eyes he can’t turn from the task, even if he wanted to. Especially as his Sire, Josef, gives him a direct command to find the Dragon and keep it safe. No matter the cost.
With rogue Vampires and Witches on its trail, it’s only a matter of time before they capture it. That’s not something Ronan will allow…not on his watch! He will do whatever it takes to find and save the Dragon, using every powerful being at his disposal, including the dark and dangerous Creed.”
I had the pleasure to read the ARC of The Dragon and The Vampire, and below are my thoughts on this story:
This is the first book I read of A. K. Michaels, and I love the paranormal world she envisioned. I’ll definitely go back and read the other titles in her series to get to know all the interesting characters mentioned in The Dragon and The Vampire. I don’t think I’ve ever read a novel about a dragon shifter, and that makes this story unique to me. Starr is larger than life. I like Ronan a great deal. His attitude–macho outside but soft-hearted inside–is very sweet and he speaks in a different language, which made the dialogues fun to read. I also tried to pronounce a few of the words, but I don’t think I came even close to the way they should be spoken. Then Starr appears. She steals the scene from the moment she enters the stage and she remains the absolute protagonist of the story. The artist who worked on the cover did an amazing job at capturing Starr, because the image matches how I painted her in my mind while I was reading the book. Thanks, Ava, for giving me the opportunity to read The Dragon and The Vampire before it comes out. It was a privilege and a pleasure. Can’t wait to read the next in this series.
The Immortal Greek is the second title in The Immortals series, and takes place one year after The Lost Centurion’s events. Alexander Drako, Marcus’s longtime friend and immortal himself, has lived a long and full life. Rich and famous, he is a carefree character until Ravenna, the Enforcer who brings the bad guys of the paranormal world to justice, enters his life. For Alexander, one day is parties and easy conquests, the next is death, deception, and unexpected love.
As for the previous title in the series, The Immortal Greek too is set in modern-day Rome, which makes it one of the few urban fantasy and paranormal novels that has The Eternal City as one of the characters. Alexander, Ravenna, and the rest of the immortals, vampires, and fallen angels populating the story have to deal with a crowded, loud, but ever so charming Rome as they try to find the truth about a series of suicides among the paranormal community.
Author A. K. Michaels has just announced the release date for The Dragon and The Vampire, the first title in the Supernatural Enforcement Bureau series. Mrs. Michaels’s new book will be out September the fifth, but since I can’t wait that long I asked for an ARC copy. And if you take a look at those teasers below, you’ll understand why I must read it now. Plus, I love dragons.
